While Mediation Progresses
War Preparations Continue  Steadily.
Bnti&n   Ambassador   Gives   Informal
Encouragement to Work of the
Peace Conference.
New   York.  April  30.-Word =:
:     was received here tonight from ��
Mexico City that Dr. H. Ryan ��
an American, had been arrest'- ti
;   ''d tbere as a spy and was to ft

Washington, April 80.���Restrained,
but none the less steady preparation
lor any military eventualities and the
quiet progress of the mediation program being worked out behind closed
doors were the two outstanding features of the Mexican situation today.
.Th' three mediation envoys of Ar-
gi ntln.t, Hrazil and Chile continued
iheir prhate sittings through the day
and evening, Their first move fori
an armistice was scheduled by the
practical suspension of hostilities, or
by a truce, between the forces of the
I'nited States and the Huerta regime, although there still were ominous sounds of conflict between the
Huerta and Carranza forces.
Secretary Bryan formally notified
lhe three southern envoys that the
American government took it for
granted that .there would be no hostilities during the mediation proceedings, and had intended no further
acts of aggression while the conferences were bejng held. Hut the attitude of Huerta and Carranza on the
cessation of hostilities still was unknown  tonight.
While there haa been no period set
Within Which the negotiations must
he concluded. Secretary Bryan said
li�� believed they would move forward
"as rapidly as possible.'' A report
that they might be prolonged by the
mediators going to Mexico was mel
ley tbe statement by one of them lhat
such a journey was unnecessary as
they had every facility for speedy
communication  with   Mexico.
While the envoys were nol ready to
make any announcement, several In-
tereaiing phases of what has come up
during the discussion were learned
from authoritative sources. It ap
pears that while the attitude of (ley
eral Huerta was delinite in accepting
Intermediation as between the i'nited
Slates and the Huerta government it
had not been made clear that his acceptance will apply also to intei-
mediation which Includes Carranza.
It is expected this question will be
cleared up by inquiries now under
way. so that it may be definitely
established that Huerta not only accepts intermediation with the I'nited
States, but also with Carranza.
Another outgrowth of the discussion was an intimation that both the
Huerta and Carranza elements would
send representatives to deal directly
with the mediators and Kranclseo de
la Barra. now at Paris as ambassador for the Huerta authorities, would
probably be designated to uct for
Encouraged by Great Britain.
During the day the intermediaries
received word of the encouraging attitude of some of the foremost European powers, notably Orcat Britain.
This was not conVeyed in any formal
adherence to the mediation work, but
was none the less definite and satisfying as the result of an informal
conference between Sir Cecil Spring-
Hire, the British ambassador, and
one of the mediators which was later
made known to the envoys as a body.
The British ambassador also talked
with Secretary Bryan along the sami.
While the mediators have not appealed directly for the friendly in
lluence of European powers, as (hen
position does not warrant addressing
foreign governments, yet their home
governments have enlisted their ambassadors and mfhisters at European
capitals to procure friendly co-operation from those quarters.
Local constitutionalists drew attention to the language of the note from
Oeneral Carranza, as not accepting
any offer to solve the differences between himself nnd Huerta, but merely
to listen to proposals which would resolve the differences between tht
United States and Me'xico. In the note
from tlie envoys to Carranza they extended "an offer of our good offices
to all parties at interest in the prob-
li'in of the pneiflcatlon of Mexico and
tlie adjustment of the differences bt>
iween Mexico and the United States."
Carranza Has Not Replied.
The Carranza reply thanked the
mediators for,v their *ffort to solve
the difference's between Mexico and
the United States.
Asked what differences existed between United States and Mexico lb
which Carranza could have a part,
local constitutionalists recalled Carranza's  recent note to the. American

Nuptials Will Be a Quiet Family
Washington. April .'10. -Miss Eleanor Itandolph Wilson, youngest
daughter of the president and Mrs.
Wilson, and William C. McAdoo, secretary of the treasury, will bo married on May 7 In the blue room of
lhe White House, it was officially announced today.
As the guest list has been limited
to members of the two families, the
cabinet and the vice-president, the
White House family decided not to
ure the large east room, the scene of
the wedding last November of Mr,
and Mrs. Francis Bowes Sayre. President Cleveland was married in the
blue room, the central parlor of the
three which connect the east room
and state dining room. The room,
notable as the scene of many historic
events, is covered in heavy, corded
blue silk and Is handsomely furnished In white, blue and gold.

Tariff   Matters   Again   Considered   in
Commons���Monopoly Feared by
Ottawa. April 30.���'Tariff matters
again ejigaged the attention of the
commons today, the resolution of the
minister of finance covering the
changes made in connection with the
budget statement being disposed of.
The most prolonged debate occurred
in connection with the increase of 15
per cent duty on the more highly finished   classes  of  stone.
It was maintained by a number of
Liberal members that the change in
duty would be of no benefit to the
small qiiarrymen or the consumers,
but would be to the advantage of the
big concerns rnly. Hon. Prank Oliver
who was particularly severe in his
strictures, said that the proposals
went beyond protection and became
pure piracy
Hon. T W. White said that the result of the changes would be that
much more stone would be finished In
Canada. This would mean more employment for Canadian stone cutters
and a longer season. Many who now
walk the streets in the winter months
would have> work. He denied that the
duty was prohibitive or that a monopoly was likely to be created.
The charge was made by opposition
j members   In   regarel   to   the  duty  on
j wire rods that it would give the Do-
j minion Steel  company and  the Steel
Corporation  of  Hamilton,  a  practical
monopoly of the nail Industry.    They
would   refuse  to  sell  to  the  smaller
makers if they cut the price, It is'said,
Mr. White did not think this would
happen.    He said that if any attempt
was made by the big concerns to deal
unfairly  the  government  would  take

Elaborate Preparations Are
Complete  for  Royal
Parade   Starts   at   1   O'clock���Queen
Eva to Be Crowned One Hour
Later���Moving  Pictures.
With the good graces of the
weather man practically corralled,
New Westminster today will celebrate the annual ceremony of crowning the May Queen. Everything In
the way of plans has been completed.
The various and numerous committees which have had charge of arranging all details connected with
the great event for the past few
weeks rested on their labors late last
night, confident that everything Is In
shape for what is destined to be the
prettiest May Day ceremony tbe
Royal City has ever enjoyed.
Commencing early this morning a
small army of "workmen" will start,
out on a grind tie finish of which I
will not be reached until the early j
hours of Saturday morning. At 9
o'clock the weather committee headed by Captain Adolphus Peele will
make the rounds as far as the library
square and with a glance at the elements will decide then and there f
Whether the day is a litting one to
hold tbe ceremony. Should old Jupl
tor Pluvius break into the happy
circle, the word will go forth throughout the city and district that a postponement has been made, but at this
time the thoughts of any postponement Is entirely out of question. Captain Peele reported fine weather and
when New Westminster's atmospheric
prognosticator comes through with
such a conviction it is time for the
citizens of this royal burg to get
busy and make the May Day of 1914
celebration one long to be remembered.

Denver, Colo.. April 30 ��� With federal troops on the ground, conditions ���
were quiet today in the Colorado

attention to the unsanitary custom
practiced  by the Japanese.
"If any of the fish die in the live
boxes, they cut eff their heads and
try to dispose of them locally to tbe
legging camps and ranchers. If tliey
are not successful in this, they simply throw tbe fish overboard, which, of
course is a great waste of fish. The
Japanese use live herring for bait
and they keep them in the same live
boxes that they use for carrying the
codfish to market, and as the Japanese are not very cleanly, this is not
a  sanitary  condition, either.
The main thing with us. however,
is the fact that our food supply is
rapidly disappearing and as It is a
serious matter with us. we hope that
you will give this complaint your immediate attention."
The name of the winner of The News Garden Essay
Competition was handed to tho editor yesterday by the
judge, Mrs. A. W. Gray. The prize, a five dollar gold piece,
goes to Mary Byrne of the Lord Kelvin school. It will be
waiting for her at The News office any time after 11:30
o'clock this morning.
Mrs. Gray, who spent a great deal of time and who
went to considerable trouble marking the one hundred
and nineteen essays which were sent in, felt that some of
the younger school pupils who had competed should be
recognized and from among their contributions she chose
that of Norman Kelly, aged ten, a pupil of Miss McMurray
in the John Robson school, as the best essay sent in by
the smaller folk. Some day this week Norman's teacher
will present him with a book, specially chosen for him
by Mrs. Gray.
What the Judge Had to Say.
This is what the judge in the competition said of the
work done by the competitors: "The essays on the whole
were neatly written and reflect great credit on the various teachers. The pupils of the F. W. Howay and Richard McBride schools deserve special commendation for
the original and practical designs for the gardens they
planned. These drawing were very neatly and carefully
"The younger children made a good showing and some
of their ideas were rather quaint. One little girl of eleven

thought that there was no question
that by placing the naval defence of
the empire in the hands of a central
body greater efficiency would be secured. That it would be better if
such a policy had been adopted, if

was in a position to undertake the
construction of battleships and cruisers of the- first-class type, he did not
think could be i]ueBtioned. By a
majority vote, however, it was decld-
e'd to shoulder the responsibility and
the future could not be forecasted.
Mr, Dempster also criticized the
government's attitude with regard to
the tenure of land. The tendency, lie
stated, appeared to be to break up sections which had been taken up and
developed. The idea, of course, was
to provide for settlement and for a
more intensive form of agriculture.

A  garden  needs  good soil, and    it
should   be   well   sifted   first.     In   the
fall, when it begins to get cold, leaves
or cedar branches should be laid over
. the rose trees and other delicate
plants. In the summer the grass
should be well watered at night, as
it does not get much moisture from
the dew.
The fruit trees should be well wash-
eel with lime or sprayed with sulphur
to keep the insects from the leave?
and fruit. When the fruit is ripe it
should be polished with a clean cloth,
so as to get the dust and pollun off.
Vegetable seeds should be planted
in the spring, and kept from the in-
seets that would spoil them. When
a lettuce leaf ge>ts holes In it it is a
sign that grubs are about and every
possible way known should he used

When   a   tree   begins  to   bear   fruit
! very niggardly it should be pruned,
because the tree cannot give enough
food to the fruit, and therefore the'
fruit decs not grow.
When sweet pe-as are planted they
should be planted in front of a lattice
work,  and  they   should   be  carefully
; trained. When weeds begin to appear
' they should be pulled up by the tools,
because if the roots remain In tin-
ground  they soon grow again.

cover tlie stones themselves, and
make a pretty spot.
Bulbs should be planted In the
spring about a foot under the earth,
and they should be put In carefully
so as not to damage the roots, which
will easily break.
The best place to have flowers is
in a sunny spot, because the sun
helps them to get. color, and to bloom.
If Beeds are planted in the fall the
ground should be covered with some
kind of fertilizer so as to keep the
ground warm. The garden should be
weeded as many  times as necessary.

FRIOAY,  MAY 1, 1914.
By D. Maxwell Merry
The opinion that when conditions are bad it is
better to reduce or suspend advertising is one that
cannot be endorsed by any sane, logical argument,
except in the case of products that cannot be regarded as anything but unnecessary luxuries. And there
are few things which people want that they are prepared to admit are unnecessary.
Just as a period of depression accentuates
competition for employment, so it also leads to a
struggle among retailers for the diminished business
that exists. In bad times the consumer looks more
eagerly for the places where he can buy cheapest, and
the storekeeper who can sell cheaply will receive the
patronage, while his competitors will suffer from
his enterprise.
Therefore, the dealer who makes known the fact
that he can meet the circumstances of the times will
get the best share of the business. His competitor
who neglects to make known what he can do will lose
more trade than he need.
Every widespread commercial crisis has produced men who have risen to the occasion and met
bad times by good work. During one of these times
the manufacturer of a well known article of apparel
found himself confronted with what looked like total
abolition of trade. His travellers came in from all
parts of the country and reported that retailers
would give no orders. Wholesale jobbing houses cut
their usual contracts in half. It almost looked as if
the people intended to go naked.
This manufacturer undeterred by the shortage
of money, took a step which in the period covered
by the history of his firm���more than twenty years
���had never been taken before. He began to advertise his goods to the public. He felt that no matter
how many people were using: up their old clothes,
they could not altogether ignore fresh goods. He
argued that advertising would send such consumers
as were open to buy to the stores, and would also
stimulate business from the retailers. Then when
good times came he could leave off advertising.
The result was unlooked for. Buying had been
cut down with so drastic a hand that stocks of all
goods in this manufacturer's line were abnormally
small. As soon as the season for this article of apparel arrived, demand began to show itself, and the
advertising started to bear fruit.
The other manufacturers in that trade were almost at a standstill, but the manufacturer who had
advertised suffered no loss of business at all. No
doubt less goods in the aggregate were bought, but
the loss fell on the other manufacturers, not upon
the advertiser.
When the depression period ended, the manufacturer had so large a trade, and a trade so profitable,
that he had no occasion to stop his advertising, and,
in fact, there was no temptation to do so for some
of his competitors who had lost their trade to him
began to try to get it back by imitating his policy.
What is true of the manufacturer in this respect
is also true of the retailer. The man who accommodates himself to the conditions of the times and
v brings his wares to the attention of the public in the
way that will command their interest in spite of depression is going to get a better hold on future business than the man who merely advertises when times
are good.

Coquitlam at Sea as to Which Team to
Play, St. Andrew's or Victoria-
Will Know Today.
Until sometime this afternoon the
Coquitlam soccer team will not know
what club will be playing at Coquitlam on Saturday owing to a mix-up
which was created when the Mainland
Koothall association ordered the mainland league champions to play St.
Andrew's, leaders of the second division, before meeting the North
Wards  of   Victoria.
On Tuesday Coquitlam and St. Andrew's played a draw on the Cambie
street grounds aud the association ordered the replay for Saturday even
though Victoria was scheduled to meet
Coquitlam on  that day.
Victoria now threatens to lay claim
to the McBride shield unless Coquitlam is able to meet them in the first
of the home and li Ome games, President Taylor of the island organization
wiring to this effect yesterday.
The Coquitlam club does not know
just what to do In thi' matter. With
a full team the railroaders can easily
dispose- or tlie- Saints although ail
chances of meeting Victoria might he
lost should the Vancouver organization still persist in carrying out such
high handed action as that of ordering a first division club to dispose of
the leuders of the second dvision before being allowed to compete tor the
provincial  title.

"Conditions in Mexico can not be
appreciated by any one not personally
familiar with them," said Mr. Thompson yesterday. "For months Americans have not been safe In the country. The men were subjected to every
form of Indignity that the subtle
Mexican minds could devise, and the

sympathy with defendants in cases
which came before him, when Mr.
Balfour was Irish Secretary and tbe
Coercion Act was in force. Lord
O'Brien, who has just tendered his
resignation as Lord Chief Justice of
Ireland, has, on more than one occasion, remarked that tbe title was
quite justified.
"I certainly eliminated from the

were prejudiced. I did so without
apology, and would do i again if in

It has been truly said that Lord

high and mighty personage.
A story which Lord O'Brien is rather fond of telling against himself relates to an occasion when he hired a

the car beside the driver, and the

Hidden Money.
Among   the   eccentricities   of the

S. S. Niagara Brings Last Shipment���
Big Increase in Deliveries to
This Country.
Victoria, April 30.���What will probably be the last shipment of New Zealand butter this season waa brought
in by tbe Canadian-Australian steamship Niagara.
Word was brought by the Niagara
that the butter export season in New
Zealand is fast drawing to a close, and
there will be no more heavy shipments
for Canada and the United Kingdom
for several months.
Figuring as one of the principal
shipments on the Niagara's manifest
was a huge shipment of 8,782 boxes
of butter for Victoria, Vancouver and
New Westminster. For the corresponding period last season a shipment of 6,586 boxes was being shipped
across  the   Pacific  from   Auckland.
With the Niagara's shipment, the
export of butter for the past season
from New Zealand via Canada, for
Canadian and British consumption, is
brought up to 383,765 boxes, valued
approximately at $4,742,000. This rep-
lesents an increase of about 17 per
cent over the export of butter from
New Zealand for the corresponding period of last season.
Particulars of the quantities of butter shipped from Auckland for tbe
season, together with the figures for
the corresponding period of last season, are set out in the following table:

London Is now in danger of demolition, and it is hoped that an effort

Sir Robert Ball, the famous astronomer, was rather fond of telling the
story of a corrcspndent who wrote to
him saying that, although he was a

got his ideas somewhat mixed, for
this was one of his sentences: "My
