This waB the important announcement of A. E. White, harbor commissioner, at the board of trade meeting
last night.
W. R. Gilley confirmed the report
that there was a 31 foot channel on
a 15 foot tide over the sandheads from
Steveston out to the lights. He had
every reason to believe that tenders
for the construction of the second
jetty would be called for very soon.
A. E.  White said they wanted the
second jetty,  not  to make the  present channel,  but to maintain  it.    lt
was a matter of vital importance.
Salt and Cure Salmon.
A lengthy letter    from    Mr.    Dau-
phinee  was  read asking the Bupport
of the  fishermen on  the  Eraser    to
salt and cure their surplus salmon in
a heavy run.
lt appeared that the canneries
could only purchase certain quantities
and the surplus fish were wasted.
The writer suggested that assistance
slu*ild be given to the fishermen for
the provision of tho requisites for
salting and curing, but a ditficulty
lay iu getting an authoritative stamp
classifying the different eiualities. A
government stamp would eettle that
obstacle and a ready market would be
established. i
Martin Monk pointed out that tlie
big runs only occurred once In tour
years. The ftshermen would then try
to dispose of their fish at once to the
cauueries and lt was only the surplus
lish refused that they would desire
to salt and cure. This was a pretty-
big proposition; the salting and curing to be profitable must be done in
a wholesale way. To have the government stamp the fish must be properly handled. Mr. Monk then described the danger of out of condition lish being cured by individual

Royal Standard is cheapest
because it goes farthest.
It's false ���economy to "shop round" for your flour.
That cheaper brand you buy does not save you money In
the long run because you get less loaves per sack. We
will say that you pay 85c more' for ROYAL STANDARD
than you do for the cheap brand. You can easily get seven
more loaves out of the Hack to say nothing of healthier,
more nourishing loaves.
Next time you buy flour don't think price, think
ROYAL STANDARD and in that way you will get most
iu quality and quantity  for your money.

to look as If the llrst game of the season would go to a tie when Elliot connected with a bleacher hit. That
happened In the sixth. The next six
batters were retired In order, Mallen
making a sensational stab of a long
drive of Silver.

of color this season is also most attractive. A chariiiiiig scheme noticed
lately was a combining of buff colored crepe and sapphire blue satin. Another telling combination is linen
color anil that lovely new tomatei
shade which is so popular just now. I
saw a particularly charming whole

Natives of (ilnini, \��-�� Guinea, Claim
I lull  lii-.iiiigni-lii-d Lineage.
Remarkable stories of the curious
natives Inhabiting Papua and varlou*
parts of New Guinea are related by
Mr. XV. N. Heaver, resident magistrate in tbe western division of New
Guinea, who is now in England on
leave. Mr. lie-aver has been nine
years in New Guinea, and for the past
live years has been in charge of tbe
western district, 'comprising some
3d,nun square miles, and extending
to the boundary of Dutch New Guinea. He has been engage*! ln all the
important expeditions in that portion
of the territory. Just before leaving Port Moresby he met Mr. John
Henry Werner, who has been killed
and eaten by the natives. Mr. Werner, who was a middle-aged man, hail
jus', arrived from Australia, and told
Mr. Beaver that he was then going
on an expedition ln search of radium
In tbe Gulf division of Papua, part
of which Is very wild.
Two of ihe most Interesting expeditions In which Mr. Beaver took part
were to the (jlrara country, which,
for three parts of the year, Is almost
entirely submerged, The Inhabitants
are practically unknown, and In their
ceremonies and customs are quite distinct from other New Guinea natives.
The expedition was despatched to>
punish the people for a number of
murders committed tn an inter-trlbal
raid. In conversation with a Reurer'1
representative, Mr. Heaver gave eome
Interesting particulars of these people
who, he said, claim descent from a
dog. They possess live totems which
are drawn on all their houses. Their
villages are erected on hillocks so ae
to be clear of the water, and the
people of each village Inhabit one
large common house, sometimes aa
much as four 7o five hundred feet
long and sixty to eighty feet In
width. The cetilre of this huge building is a kind of common hall which is
only U3ed by the men while the walla
of the structure are divided into cubicles in three or four floors, access to
which is gained by means of lac'iers.
The women are not allowed to enter the building by th-' same door as
the men. These Glrara people, though
head hunters, ate not canniba.s. The
men have a curious habit of dressing;
their hair on their faces, so that It
appears like a length of rope. The*
Girara, who are the only people in
Tapua who cover their heads, wear
head-dress consisting of a fibre hat.
Mr. Beaver g'.p.'.os that a great deal'
of sorcery prevails in the wes'.era
division. In the wilder pans ol tbe
country tbe chief is himself a head
sorcerer. He claims to be able to-
separate his spirit from his body, anel
to send it on various missions. Including that of killing people. Quite-
recently a number of Boreerers went

As children, our first demand is for nourishment; our
second for facls.
All through life we go about
searching for information.
We make a new acquaintance;
but before we will accept him
as a friend or invite him to our
home we ask for facts about him.
We visit a foreign land; and from
the moment we step across its
border we are asking questions���
searching for fads.
We are asked to try a new food product; isn't it instinctive
with us to ask at once:
"Who makes this new article ?"
" How is it made ? what goes into it ?"
" Is it worth the price charged for it ?"
Facts���we are simply hungry for them.
Strange, isn't it, that we should so often have to search for
them ? Odd, that some manufacturers still withhold the facts
about their product. Not always because they are facts to be
ashamed of���for there are many worthy articles yet unadvertised.
But it will not be so much longer. The fact-hunger of the
human race is becoming keener and keener. The more facts
we get, the keener our relish for more of them.
Soon it will be impossible to sell a man or a woman anythin
until everything has been told about the goods that can be tol
through Advertising.
The public has discovered that Advertising tells much-needed facts���
that, in fact, Advertising satisfies fact-hunger.
If you are doing a local butinew talk over your adva-tuing problems with ihs
Advertising Department ol this newspaper.
If you are doing a provincial or national business it would be well for yon
lo have the counsel and assistance of a good advertising agency.   A list of these will be
furnished, without cost or obligation, by lhe Secretary of Canadian Piess Association,

She Helped Her Father.
"I help my father In his work a*
much as I can. I think It is the duty
of every girl to try to help her father," says Miss Olwen Lloyd George,
tlie eldest daughter of the Chancellor
of the Exchequer. Miss George, who
is a charming, happy-looking girl of
twenty-one, has taken over a sort or
press department of the new Land
Campaign. Her chief industry Is the
allocation and classification of all the
press cuttings concerning her father,
and when one considers the bun"
dreds, and perhaps thousands, of references to the Chancellor of the Exchequer which are made In newspapers and magazines every week, the
arduous nature of her task Is apparent. Miss George goes to the Treasury every morning to get tho newspapers, and she sorts them out and
keeps a record In press-cutting books.
