by Davis' counsel against a Judgment
of the Hrltish Columbia supreme

similar to those unsuccessfully argued before the court of appeal of
British Columbia a few weeks ago,

Vera Cruz, May 11. From Mexico
City come late reports of lurge numbers of men and boys drilling in the
streets. A few nights ago a mob
gathered before the Brazilian legation
and demanded that Luis D'Antln, an
attache of the American embassy, who
had taken refuge there, be delivered
over. Threats were made to kill him.
The Brazilian minister notified the
state department that he would only
surrender D'Antln in case he was
overpowered by the mob. The antipathy to the attache Is due to the
fact that he is the only American official left In the capital.
So far as known no measures have
been taken to fortify the capital.
At Guadalupe, a strategic point on
tho Mexican railway entering the city,
there  are  no  signs of  fortifications,
The   federals,   however,     are   taking
steps to provision Puebla, about midway between Vera Cruz and the capital.    General Navarrette Is said to be
i holding    outposts    east    of    Puebla

Last Stand at Puebla.
A  rumor lias been current in    the
capital  that iu  case  Villa drives  the
federals  out,   Huerta  Is   planning   to
make a  stand at  Puebla,  which  has
military      advantages     for    defense.
Puebla Is tlie city where the Mexicans
made a desperate    resistance against
the French invasion.
An American named Doster, formerly a correspondent for a newspaper,
but recently employed at a bank iu
the capital. Is missing and is supposed to have been imprisoned. Doster
resumed his newspaper work when the
other correspondents at Mexico City
went In Vera Cruz. Ills quarters wett
searched and a secret code was found
lo which the authorities attached
much Importance.
He was arrested hut released under
orders to report lo the police at a

American Consulate Looted.
The secretary of the American consulate nt Saltillo. .lose Marachini.
called at the Brazilian legation a few
days ago and reported that the consulate had been looted by federals.
Secret codes and the office records
were seized, and Vice Consul John
li. Silliman and his wife were arrest
ed ami taken to the governor** palace.
The number of American women
left in the capital Is estimated up to
300. Almost all the American doctors
in Mexico City refuse to leave their
patients. The American hospital is
open and in it are American nurses
ami several American patients. Hospital and medical supplies are growing
scarcer and medicines and bandages
have been commandeered from drug
The British legation has sent out
another notification to all British subjects in Mexico, urging the advisability of leaving the the country imme

Washington, May 11.While peace
negotiations marked time pending formal sittings of the South American
mediators to begin on Monday on Canadian soil, the mediators and officials
ot the state department here today-
were occupied with several serious
phases of the Mexican situation, demanding immediate attention.
Secretary Bryan called at the Argentine legation and spent two hours
in conference with the South American envoys, discussing the continued
detention of John R. Silliman, American vice-consul at Saltillo. by Mexican federals, the reported seizure of
Lobos Island with its lighthouse by
American torpedo boats and the case
of the five South Americans under arrest   at   Vera   Cruz   for   firing   upon
Rebel Leader Expects to 7stablish His
Capital at Saltillo Within a
Short Time.
Kl I'aso. Tex., May 11. General
Carranza Ib planning the establishment of his provisional capital at Saltillo within an extremely short time,
according to Roberto V. Ilesquelra,
confidential agent of the constitutionalist chief, who returned from Torreon
today. General Carranza, who left
yesterday for Durango to smooth out
wrinkles In the organization of the
civil government of that state, is expected to return to Torreon within a
few days. Shortly after that time he
expects to be able to enter Saltillo.
Once that point is gained the provisional capital Is expected to remain
there until the constitutionalist troops
march through the streets of .Mexico
The confidence shown in Carranza's
plans is reflected in the attitude of
high constitutionalist officials here regarding the embargo on arms. When
questioned as to what action they
think the United States would take
regarding arms consigned to the constitutionalists at Tampico should they
take that port, which they are now attempting, they are non-committal, but
they   assert   positively   that   the   em-

The head of the nation looked out

voice shook with emotion as he declared his creed: "We have gone down to
Mexico," he said, "to serve mankind
if we can find out a way. We do not
want to fight with the Mexicans; we
want to serve them."
There was a wistfu! note in his voice
as fie added: "I never was under fire,

just as hard to do as to go under fire.

Vienna, May 11. The meetings between the Kaiser Wllhelm and the
emperor of Eustria. followed by tht
meeting with King Victor Emmanuel
of Italy, were known as the time to be
of unusual Importance.
The subsequent conversations, however, between the kaiser and the Archduke   Franz   Ferdinand   at  Miramare,
together  with the  meetings  with  the
king  of  (ireece,   were   perhaps  even
I more important.   The roughly drafted
plans, made at Vienna,  were  worked
I out by the ministers ut Abbazia. and
news of what was decided is leaking
: out by degrees.
The most important problem that
| faces the whole triple alliance Is the
! army question. The events of the last
I two Balkan wars have placed Austria-
1 Hungary, and the two allies, with her,
| In a very difficult position. Austria-
I Hungary has enemies on three sides.
| Relations with Hussla are so bad, that
'they could not very well be worse;
! this means that she must keep a pow-
i erful force on lhe northern and eastern  frontiers.
This has been the case for many
years, but the situation Is completely
ohanged In one respect, namely, that |
whereas formerly Russia, in spite of I
her great numbers, was never ready, I
she is now making extensive prepara- j
tions for all kinds of eventualities. I
Defection Makes Change. |
This Is bad enough, but the defection of Rumania has now rendered lt
necessary for Austria-Hungary to dis-
| locate an entire army corjin for that
frontier When closely bound to Austria-Hungary King Carol and his splendidly organized army was a factor all
to the good. The disaffected king,
however, is now a powerful enemy,
especially as there are a large number of Rumanians within the borders
of Austria!iungary.
Servia is full of confidence in her
army, there is little doubt that both
Montenegro and Servia would be sufficiently confident in their strength to
proclaim war on Austria-Hungary
should she become engaged elsewhere,
harassing her on her southern frontier, when her troops were all required for the north. As long as she
ls at peace, the Servians will not, however,  attempt any agressivc  acts.

Splendid Story of British Heroism to
Be Told By Moving Pictures at
the Opera House.
By D. Maxwell Merry
Advertising educates the readers of advertisements by directing their attention to the merchandise they refer to. The fact that the manufacturer has expended and is expending considerable
sums on the publication of advertisements on his
goods, gives him a strong interest in maintaining
their quality. He has a stake in the public appreciation of their merits, and he cannot afford to let the
quality deteriorate. The great standby of the advertiser of proprietary articles���goods that are known
by a trade mark and can be recognized anywhere���
is the fact that purchasers know that these
r advertised goods will be the same wherever and
whenever they are bought.
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 U. S. found that something had gone wrong with the goods, and as there
u 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
f^ 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 was
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. Hut 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 h?c
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 il 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
;        these improvements to his own energy and resourcefulness and quite right, too.   But the force which
stimulates his energy and resourcefulness is the ad-

Next Monday, May 18, will be seen
for the first time in this city the
motion picture film of Captain Scott's
memorable'  antarctic journey.
Charles H. Haudford. the noted
Shakespearean actor, has been especially engaged to deliver the lecture
on these pictures. This is no ordinary lecture, but one that is filled with
the bentt descriptive Knglish. The
dramatic 'possibilities that it affords
will be well cared for by Mr. Hand
ford, who is known as one of lhe best
Interpreters of dramatic literature.
Overflow audiences have witnessed
these pictures everywhere they have
been Bhown and many there are who
open their eyes with astonishment at
some of the sights recorded. Kor instance, the idea of a "motor" Bledge
sliding majestically over a listless
field oi ice is something very few-
people have seen antl consequently almost unbelieveable, since to the layman there is no visible means of such
a feat being accomplished. Vet, one
glimpse nf the picture iir motion and
all doubt is dispelled. Not only does
the sledge propell itself, but It transports toiiB of freight; true, the speed
is not fast, never exceeding more than
three miles per hour on level ground
or Icp, but it is sure and sufficient.
Then, too, another invention is ob
served at the rear of the sledge, lt
is a motor attached to a miniature
wheel, which is in turn hitched to the
rear of the sledge and so at the end
of the journey but one little peek is
required to ascertain the number of
miles covered.
In direct contrast to the glow moving, if unique, motor sledge, Is the
"flying dog team." These noble brutes
from Kastern Siberia, literally race
over the ice from  start  to finish.
But, perhaps, something encountered by the explorers may prove more
exciting than the method of transportation.     Hence,  tlie   eye   may   glance
through the lens of the all conquering
cinematograph, at that majestic and
awe-inspiilng volcano, Mt. Rrebus, in
U actual state of eruption. This film,
acknowledged by scientists to be the
greatest educational exhibit yet produced. ��s taken under extreme difficulties, and but for the timely forethought of Herbert G. Ponting, the
official photographic expert of the expedition, would never have been recorded.
Probably the most thrilling incident
flashed upon the screen Is that of a
school of killer whales, pursuing a
mother seal and her baby. The old
seal jumps out of Ihe sea on to the
ice. and frantically endeavors to lift
her little one after her; failing In this
she dives almost into tlie Jaws of certain death trying to rescue her little
one. No oue knows the outcome of
the tragedy, but the crew were in
hopes that a harpoon shot into the
leaibr saved the mother and her baby.
The pictures will be seen for three
days, afternoon and evening, commencing Monday next, at the opera
house. The proceeds on Monday evening will be given to the Anti-tuberculosis Society for the furtherance of
the splendid humanitarian work belli-.,
carried on by the association.

There are trees in Canada whose
commercial Importance is clearly on
the wane. According to one of tlie
latest bulletins of the Dominion forestry branch of the value of the white
pine lumber cut in 1912 was $1,500,000
less than in 1911. The cut of hemlock decreased 30 per cent.; that of
cedar decreased 21 per cent., and tamarack, the lumber production of which
has decreased over 40 per cent, in
the last two years, bids fair soon to
become commercially extinct. Of the
six leading tree species in Canada.
Douglas fir was the only one whose
lumber production increased in 1912.
In the province of British Columbia
alone Douglas fir formed over 67.7
per cent, of the total lumber cut, and
British Columbia ls at present by far
the richest timber province in Canada,
containing, according to some estimates, one-half the merchantable timber wealth of the Dominion.
Tills    remarkable    tree    attains    a
height of over 200 feet, with a trunk
10  to  12   feet   in  diameter,  forming,
alone or  mixed   with  hemlock,  great
toreestB extending 400 miles north of
the international  boundary  line.    Its
natural   range  extends  in   Canada  to
the   eastern   foothills   of   the   Rocky
mountains in Alberta, where it grows
to a height of 130 feet and a diameter
of  four   feet,  and   is  considered  one
of the most important timber trees on
the   Dominion   Rocky   mountains  for
j est reserve, which c overs an area of
I pearly  21.00  Osquare  miles
|     It is also widely distributed through
j out the  western  United States, being
able   to   stand   considerable   climatic
variation   and  (being   practically   im-
I tiiiine to insects or fungus diseases.
Dr. C. S. Sargent, one of the greatest authorities on American trees, de-
I scribe.-   the   wood   as   hard,   durable,
and largely used for all kinds of con-
I struction.    According to a  recent Do-
i minion forestry branch publication on
| "The Wood-using   Industries   of   On-
there was a point between rampant
militancy and ineffective peace. The
women needed more moral courage
and spirit before they could effect
anythinng here, and publicity and educational work were two sadly-needed
factors In the local propaganda. To be
half a suffragette was worse than to
be no suffragette. Open air meetings
were advocated, and if permission for
such were required lt could be asked
of the police after rather than before
the first meeting.
Mrs. I'owers pointed out that it
might excite the surprise of the public more If a propaganda were peacefully carried forward than if militancy
were adopted.
Speaking with great earnestness
Mrs. A. K. McPhilllps urged restraint
from militancy, but huge energy within constitutional limits. Militancy,
she said, was not only immoral, but
useless and cruel. Whether women
worked or did not work for the suffrage, however, the day was coming
us sure as the seasons, when men
would not only give women the vote,
but would thrust it upon them to offset the big foreign vote that would
flow Into Canada with the opening of
the Panama canal. Destruction and
rioting were old, worn-out methods,
she continued. It was up to the members to educate their children to see
Justice, and when the sons came to be
men and legislators they would not
require deputations to convince them
of the rights of all womanhood. Finally, Mrs. McPhilllps called attention to
the changed sentiment of the people
of the city during the past two or three
years, pointing out that suffrage, formerly sneered at, was now more tolerated.
Following Miss Sharpnell's remark
that this change was largely due to
the militants in Kngland. Mrs. Bishop
spoke for some minutes, expressing
the opinion that militancy was only-
justifiable when all other methods had
failed, and that it would be foolish and
wrong to adopt it in Canada.

Although there was apparently wide

the speakers were in favor rather of

passive an attitude on the    part    of
those who posed as suffragettes. De-

Some Views.
I     Among the speakers were Mrs. (lor- I

i present who thought that if some such :
j methods were adopted the men might

these militan methods, had tried for
more years than the womtn of British
Columbia to win the vote along constitutional   lines   before    adopting    the
i more   active   measures   of   militancy,

such good results, the recommenda-
tions made by .1. Forsyth Smith as
to the better handling of the output in
the fruit markets or the prairies
comes at a timely moment.
The weekly market report sent bj
Mr. Smith from Calgary every Saf.ir
day night last season reached the
members of the Hrltish Columbia Fruit '
Growers'   associations   on    Monday
morning, but he remarks that thi?
market news service can never com
pete with the daily telegram sent to
a shipper by li is special sales agent.
i He adds that the federal government
of the I'nited States has recently or
I ganlzed a bureau of markets covering
I almost precisely, that covered by him
Small Fruits.
Speaking of small fruits, Mr. Smith
urges   on   British   Columbia   growers'
the co-opt ration  that will  insure car-!
I load   lots  coupled   with   refrigeration.
The market for strawberries  is  un*
limited;   140 American carloads  were
shipped   in   last   year,   an.!   I'uyallup
sent   369   carloads   Of   raspberries   in
plact of the 13,t shipped  In  1912.   Hi
also advocates  the  maintenance of a
1 traveling      representative      on      tin
' prairies during the whole of the berry
j season, osme system of assuring "de-
1 pendablllty anil  sufficiency"    of    supply   to   the   retailer   and   the   hOt*ling
] back for cannery or local consumption
1 of berries not In a condition to tra-
i vel  well.
Mr. Smith also advises the Calgary
I public market ns an outlet for stir-
j plus fruit, and suggests that they
: would obtain support from the Grain
Growers company in disposing of btr-
j ties to fanners through tli.it oreaniza-
; tion.
With regard to apples.   Mr.   Smith
put the demand for the best No. l's in
! the northwest as 15 per cent, the re
I maining 86 per cent, being compi ti .1
for by Canadian   No,  2's and   Ameri-
, can "("' grade.    He criticized severe-
j ly In  the number Of varieties shipped.
��� and  states  that  "from  a  commercial
standpoint,   I   would   emphasize   that
I British Columbia's gr-at need, is for
Ian Increased production of the long
keeping winter apples."
Much advice Is tendered as to the
|value of advertising  which  will  reach
the consumer, ami the attachment to
thi   farmers' demonstration trains of
I a fruit display.   Mr. Smith also dwells
' on the value of distinctive brands. In
1 the letters "O. K." the Okanagan has
: ready to its hand a suggi stive brand
j that should readily fasten itself In the
mind of the consumer, as the "V" Of
I the  Yakima   valley  fiuil   lms  already
done as a Bynoym for quality and reliability.    This,   he   thinks,   should   be
lone   by   Individual   organizations  at
I theii  own expense.
In conclusion he points to the prob
. ability of a heavy crop this year and
; of less satisfactory prices. This makes
it all the mure Imperative to perfect
organized selling of tiie crop from this
' province
Much statistical evidence Is appended of consumption at different centres,  freight, rates  and  so on, and  the
whole bulletin  is one which  will  re-
, pay  tlie  closest  study   hy   the   British
Columbia fruit grower.
when it is understood that Captain To-
minaga, of the Awa Maru, heard nothing ot the Hindu ship when at Shanghai on that date.
The statement was also made by tbe
returning Hindu that 250 turbaned
men were aboard the Komagata when
she left Hongkong and several hundred were waiting to board her at
Shanghai. She was to call at a Japanese port en route to take on additional passengers and bunker for the trip
across the Pacific.
From the same source the Immigration men were informed that the Komagata Maru was not scheduled to
leave the Japanese coast until the beginning of May. Had tbe Komagata;
Maru sailed direct from Shanghai for
Victoria she would not be able to
make the voyage in less than 24 days.

hal on April 16.

Dr. Similar Singh, a leader of the
Hindu community here, is authority
forthe statement that the Komagata
Maru was placed under charter by a
Hindu s\ ni.Ieate headed by one Gurdit
Singh. Further than this he knows
nothing concerning the movements of
the Komagata  Maru.
Nothing was sigltted of the mysteri
tins ship by the Blue Funnel liner
Antilochu.-i. which arrived yesterday I
from the Orient. Any day the Hindu
laden Ship may show up off William
Head, in the meantime the immigration authorities are preparing to handle the peculiar situation.

Great interest is bing displayed
in Immigration and shipping circles as
to the probable date of arrival of the
vessel, which is expected to create a
situation unparalleled since the nrri-
val of a shiploatl of Japanese at Vancouver board the steamer Kumerlc se?

Tht most recent story to be set
afloat is to the effect that the Komagata Maru has succeeded In landing
a number of her complement on the
west coast of Vancouver islami and
that three of the party had reached
Victoria hy the overland route I his
yarn Is discredited by the Immigration authorities, who are Inclined to
believe that it secured Its foundation

James F. McLellan. Formerly of Vancouver .Suicides By Cutting Hit
Throat on a  Train.
Minot, N.I).. May n.��� James F. Mc-
LelUtn. of Olasjtow, Scotland, wbo had
been Investigating street railway systems In the United States and Canada for the Hrltish government, commuted suicide by cutting his throat
with u razor in the tourist sleeper on
the Oriental Limited betwen Minot
snd Stanley yesterday afternoon.
Financial losses In real "state In
Canada are g .en us the cause of bin
action. Mci.ellan was travelling from
Vancouver to Toronto.
On his person were letters from
Uoyd Ceorge und other Hrltish states
man, together with $80 In currency
aud copies of a treatise on North and
South American subjects that he had
written. He was formerly manager
of the l-ilrd line ot steamships. He
was 45 years old aud is survived by
u mother In Glasgow.
Mr. McLellan was it successful
plaintiff in the supreme court at Vancouver in an action tritd two weekB
ago, and in which Mr. Justice Murphy gave judgment ten days ago in
ills favor. On a previous visit to Vancouver over a year before, McLellan
nad agretd to buy a corner lot on
Fourth avenue for a price of $50,000.
The evidence disclosed that at the
time lie made the agreement, he was
confined to a room in the Hotel Vancouver through illness, and had accepted the representations of agents
for the vendor as to the value or tne
lot and of -.djacent property. In the
suit he asked for the recisslon of the
agreement to purchase, and the return
of $15,000 he had made as first payment. In giving ju.dgment, Mr. Justice Murphy said he found that the
properly at the time McLellan was induced to buy Instead of being worth
$50,000 was worth less than $25,000,
and gave Judgment lu his favor.
During the progress of the trial Mr.
McLellan, who was In the witness box
for over a day. showed himself to be
x capable witness with a ready appre-
I ciation of humor. A big broad-
shouldered, we*il-set-up man with
laughing eyes and an alert kindly face
he fenced with counsel as if mjoylng
the sport, and told with amusement
and humor of the manner in which
he had been received ln various coast
cities. Describing his reception In
Seattle, whence he had gone after I
leaving Vancouver to investigate ship- j
ping conditions, he said:
"They had evidently heard 1 had I
money to burn." He stated in his I
evidence that his object in visititi't the |
coast had not been for purposes of '
speculation or investment, but to make
report* on shipping condition* (or \
steamship Interests in Great BrHain. i
