Dancing  Prizes.
From a foundation laid by Miss
Lena Cotsworth and Hugh Savage at
the festival of 1913, the folk and Maypole duncing has become a permanent fixture at the annual ceremony,
yesterday's event being one of tbe
splendid  features of the afternoon.
The Fred W. Howay school won

Report of the Loss of the Steamship
Said  to  Be  Due to Confusion
Over Wireless Message.
San Francisco, May 1.���The liner
Siberia, reported wrecked off Formosa
steamed into Manila Bay within an
hour or schedule time. Advices cabled
from Manila under tomorrow's date
reported that at 11 a. m. the vessel
dropped anchor and her captain reported an uneventful voyage from Na.
Prior reports from Manila led to a
general belief that the 18,000 ton steel
ship was safe, but local shipping
circles were pessimistic arguing that
messages of the latitude and longitude
do not spring from nowhere. The
explanation that the wireless call
"S.O.S." and the code signal for the
liner Persia, "M.B.S.," had become
confused straightened out this phase
of the affair.
Exceptional interest was taken
throughout the country in the fate or
the Siberia, because of the number of
prominent persons on her passenger
list, which Included the name of Mrs.
Francis Burton Harrison, wife or the
governor general  of the  Philippines.
Manilla time is about 20 hours
ahead  o'  San   Francisco  time.
Cash Subscriptions at Meeting Last
Night Were $480.
Al a meeting of Newfoundlanders
resident In this city, held last night
in the Conservative club rooms, the
sum or $480 was subscribed toward
the relief fund being raised for the
victims or the mid-March gales which
crippled the sealing and codfish industries.
An offer, made by Mr. Wilson, on
behalf of the Choral society, to produce "Elijah" at St. Andrew's church
next Tuesday, was accepted with
thanks. The proceeds will swell the
relief fund.
The following were named a general committee to carry on the work:
F. J. Hart, chairman; S. Howell, secretary; D. H. Macgowan, Sam Dawe,
George Brine, E. Mercer, K. Hampton.

Calgary, May 1. -Word has been received by C. P. R. officials here that
160 men employed on the grade work
at Monitor, situated on the company's
new Uicombe line, 140 miles east of
this city, have gone on strike and
are in an ugly and dangerous mood.
The strikers have threatened to murder men who have remained on the
job and also to destroy property belonging to the company. Mounted
police have been informed and sev
eral officers are now on duty at the
scene of the trouble. I. W. W. agitators are said to be responsible for the

London. May L���Probably the most
political significant event of the day
was the indication by Ix>rd Curzon in
a speech before a demonstration of
the Primrose league that the Marquis
of I^ansdowne would be the premier
or the next Unionist administration.
The demonstration was a big cue
and showed little indication of surrender upon the Irish question, although there was nothing actually said
which could be taken as disturbing
the  peaceful  atmosphere of the day.
Lord Lansdowne himself was very-
cautious about the proposed scheme of
federalism, asserting that the government had no mandate for such a policy
and he added, perhaps significantly,
that "there is dange. in accepting
terms which may not prove a settlement in the end."
Meanwhile there is a growing desire among the people and especially
among the radical politicians, that at
any coat a conference should be held
he* ecu Sir Edward Carson and John
Ridmend. The radical Star voices a
Very   wide'   sentiment   when   it  says:
"Ulster .'a a question for Irishmen.
It is a question which will not be
settled until the second irbh leaders
are locked up In a room together by
public opinion. The only safe course
for the government Is to go straight
on while Redmond and Carson go into
retreat somewhere to settle this .ues-
tion in a purely Irish way."
Denver, May 1.���in a telegram addressed to Martin D. Foster, chairman of the house committee on mines
and mining, the presidents of twenty-
one Colorado coal companies today-
reiterated their willingness to agree
to a settlement of the coal strike
upon the terms suggested by Governor Ainmons in a letter of November
27, 1913, which was laid before representatives of the operators and miners
at a conference on that date.
Governor Amnions,  In    the    letter,
urged   that   the  point  of  recognition
of the union be waived, but  that  the
miners be permitted to maintain their
organization.    He  urged  further that
the operators guarantee  the employment  of a check   welghman;   abolish
the  "scrip system"; observe the regulations of the eiyht hour law. permit
employees    to    trade      where      ther
choose;   insure    observance    of    the
semi-monthly pay day: observe to the
letter all  the  provisions  of  the coal
mine inspection law and employ again
all   strikers   whose   places    had     not
been   filled   and   who   had   not   be. n
guilty of law    violation    during    til"
The telegram includes the letter of
Governor Amnions and says:
"The strikers refused to accept the
terms of settlement proposed by the
governor and approved by the operators, and all the disorder and bloodshed in this state since December 27
has been due to this attitude of the
officers and members of the United
Mine Workers of America. We still
consider the plan of the governor
legally and industriously sound and
have never retracted our formal approval thereof.''

More Troops for Colorado.
Washington, May 1.-���Orders to
quadruple the force of federal
cavalrymen in the Colorado coal
strike regions went from the war department late tonight. The entire
Eleventh regiment from Fort Oglethorpe, Ga.. and two troops of the
Twelfth from Fort Robinson, Neb.,
were ordered to proceed to the scenee
at once'. Colonel James lxickett. of
the Eleventh, to take supreme command of the situation.
Secretary Garrison issued the
orders after the conference with
President Wilson. He said the step
was taken not because trouble was
expected, but because it had been
demonstrated that the five> troops of
cavalry now in the coal fields did not
provide enough men to cover the
large territory involved. Reports
from Colorado tonight, the secretary
added, were favorable.
The twelve troops of the Eleventh
will be distributed through Trinidad.
Walsanburg, Agullar and Forbes districts, and the two troops of the
Twelfth will go to Boulder and Louisville.

A movement started at Dayton, Ohio, appears to be
developing the best solution advanced so far of the problem of how to initiate a real back-to-the-land movement
and that solution is nothing more than a concerted effort
to interest boys in farm work.
The originator of the idea, a Mr. Patterson, long has
been interested in the problem of attracting boys from
congested cities to the country. After considerable effort he succeeded in getting farmers in Dayton to take
over three hundred boys and teach them something about
farming. Facts and figures have demonstrated that it
has not been a difficult thing to get the boys interested
in farm life. Its openness, freedom and healthfulness
were in striking contract to their surroundings in the
cities and the change was speedily appreciated. Apart
from what the boys learn of practical farming on the
farms, they are given lessons and lectures in a club to
which all belong.
Speaking of the idea, its author recently said: "The
farmers of Dayton now are raising a new crop. It is a
most important one, far more important than that of
raising one hundred bushels of corn to the acre���that crop
is boys."
In view of the widespread attention being given on
this side of the line to the back-to-the-land movement and
the urgent need for more home grown products the Dominion or provincial governments might do worse than institute some sort of a course of instruction for boys along
the lines of that adopted in Ohio.

treaty is a dead letter. This failure
of the Russians to justify their posi-j
tion could not but react on their po-'
litical standing,
The   Khutukhta  himself,   who  owes
practically everything to the Russians,
could  not long remain  Insensible to
the complaints of his subjects, and If
anything   was   still   wanting   to  show
him the necessity of a change of po- j
; litical  policy it  was soon supplied  by
the princes thi mselves, many of whom j
began secret negotiations with  Pekin I
for the- restoration of china's sovereign authority.
At first, the Kuhttrkhta was Inclined
to mat  this conduct eif the princes
as she e-r treason and meted out  with
a lavish hanel punishments,   consisting  mainly   in   the  expulsion   of  the I
mutinous   notables   from   the     "Kho- ,

the mind  of  the  Khutukhta,  who,  in
addition,  soon  himself began  to  have
grievance's against the  Russian.
Winn In December, 1911, by the
advice of the Russians, he proclaimed
the independence of Mongolia, he was
led to expect that the Mongolia which
the Russians would help h'.m to unite
under his sceptre would embrace the
entire historical Mongolia. He' gradually found out li is mistake,
No Funds for Military.
Again, when concluding the treaty
with Russia the. Khutukhta regarded
the compact as one concluded between two powers of equal status, and,
while agreeing to the appointment of
a Russian diplomatic representative
at Urga, expected to be able to appoint one himself at St. Petersburg.
Hut Russia refused to agree to this,
and the Russian representative al
Urga became a sort of resident In a
protected state. Lastly, Russia has
refused to place at Kliutukhta's disposal a discretionary sum for military

All this combined has gradually|
brought aboi ,i change In thu Kliutukhta's mil ., which found eloquent

N McKenrte St. SATURDAY, MAY 2, 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.
Story of Famous Old Fight in Imperial
Parliament and How It
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
brings his wares to the attention of the public in the

(From   "Orattan'a   Parliament  Before
and After." by M. McDonnell
Bodkin,   K.   ('.)
The government had counted on a I
substantial majority. The closeness j
of the division was regarded as a vie-1
tory by the defeat and a defeat hy the
victorious, There was universal rejoicing In Dublin, and it was thought
that in accordance with precedent the
project would now be abandoned. The
obstinacy with which the government
provoked another encounter soon dispelled that delusion. . . .
An enormous crowd collected on
College (Ireen. The house Itself, floor
and galleries, was crowded to the
doors. . . The address having recited
thai Ills majesty "had condescended to
Invite the parliaments of botii countries to devise means ��for maintaining
and improving the connection essential to their common security," declared "we shall not fail to give the
fullest consideration to a communication of such momentoiiB Importance."
Mr. F'onsouby met Hie government
challenge with an amendment striking
out this obnoxious clause, and battle
was joined In a debate of wonderful
brilliancy and intense ferocity, in
which no man's character was spared.
The leaders of the bar he described as "pettifoggers and cabal-
lers," "a desperate faction." The nation itself was accused of "barbarism,
ignorance and gross ingratitude to the
protection and paternal regard she
had ever experienced from England,"
"The- ravings of an Irritated youth,"
was I'unsonby's audible comment on
the speech.
The debate grew every moment
more violent. Mr. Kgan, known a3
"Bully" Kgati .... is described by
an eye witness as "galolping like a
dray horse over his opponents, plunging and kicking and overthrowing all
before him; no member on that night
delivered a more sincere, clumsy and
powerful oration." Sir Niel O'Donnell,
a colonel In a Mayo regiment, dls- I
claimed all future allegiance if a un-
ton was carried, and swore lie would
resist at the head of his regiment "rebels In rich clothes as be had resisted rebels in rags." Next day he was

London, May 1. The paper read by
Dr. Vrooman before the Royal Colonial institute upon the economic effect of the Panama canal on western
Canada was a magnificently able expression of opinion in favor of the
lii'iiefits that may accrue from the
opening of the canal. It means, he
says, tliat the canal will put an Alberta farmer In the summer about
Men cents a bushel nearer Liverpool
and in the winter fifteen cents a

ten cents a bushel to the value' of
every bushel nf grain to be grown in
Alberta. His conclusions were as under:
"-Simultaneously with the birth and
growth of the British Columbia coast
cltit s three great world movements
have been making headway which
never have been seen before and never
will be seen again. They are of the
kind that can happen at once. The
first is the cutting of the Panama canal. The seconu is the awakening of
Asia. The third is the peopling of
the prairies. All the so are happening
for the first time in the history of the
world. There are no more hemispheres
to bisect. There are no more majorities to awaken. There are no more
imperial domains on this continent to
populate and develop.

The agricultural schools of Denmark
have' grown out of the efforts of the
(armors and their leaders to instruct
and train young men for following
farm life without subjecting them to
influences or surroundings, instructions or occupation which would be
likely to wean them from country
life. '
They are ail residential schools; the
pupils live iogether In n manner similar to that which has been described
at length under the People's High
Schools. In addition to the class
rooms and a small museum stocked
with specimens useful for illustration
and demonstration, the agricultural
school has a farm connected with it
as  part of its equipment.
Tlie' farm is not managed or run as
an experimental station, and only to
a very small extent docs it use illustration plots. An Illustration Is given of the- management of the farm as
a whole according to the system and
methods which yield the best results
in the locality. The principal Is also
the managing farmer. The preservation ami increase of fertility, and the
quantity, quality and suitability of
the crops for market and for consumption, are considered. The numbers
and the kinds of live stock are determined by the capacity of the farm as
directed towards making profits.
Since the Institution receives a comparatively small grant from the state,
it must be managed as a profit-making
establishment, or at least in such a
way as to make ends meet after paying
salaries and providing for the upkeep.
Students and Courses.
The agricultural school, which at
first grejv as a branch from the High
school stem, follows the high school
methods, but has agriculture and the
related sciences as the main portion
of its subjpect matter. Students pass
no examination for admission and receive- no certificate at the end of the

Your Executor
Almost as important as the gathering together of sufficient assets
to provide for your family or other beneficiaries after your death, is
the selection of an Executor to look after those assets so that your
instructions as set out in your will, may be carried out in the wav
you intend.
This company brings to the management of Estates a strong financial responsibility, the experience and knowledge of a strong board
of directors and train staff, and a businesslike unbiased service.
Our fees for acting as Executors are never more and are often
less than those of an individual Executor.
Will you not talk this matter over with one of our officers, it
will be treated as strictly confidential.

One  one side of  the   window  on    a

runs throughout the management of

Canada has a substantial int. rest in
Mexico, says The Mone.a-y Times. For
, many years, transportation, light and
; power companies, backe I Dy Canadian
! men,   enterprise   and   charters,   have
; been operating in that republic. Sever- ,
' al new companies of a similar nature I
i have  recently been char.) red  by the '
Canadian government,   The result, as
I previously pointed out,  is  Lha"  about
i $2i 0,000,0011  of  Rritish   capital    have
j been diverted to Mexico by Canadian
I companies,    In  addition,   two  of our
! banks have branches in the republic.
i The   pre sent   disturbances,   therefore,
i have special significance for Canada.
They  may  seriously  affect    existing
' undertakings In  Mexico, and  naturally  the  inflow  of  foreign  capital  will
cease  entirely   until   better   or  complete order is restored.
Normal Conditions.
We  must remember that  the state
of Mexico, during recent years, while)
disturbed, is really the normal.    The
period of President Diaz, during which
peace was fairly well preserved, was
abnormal,   Diaz held the presidential
reina for thirty years.    Although his
position   seemed   particularly   secure,,
he was overthrown In 1911, partly by
armed force and partly by public opin-
Ion,    While Diaz has the reputation of j
1 a strong rule r, there were defects in
j his   qualities.     The   strength   of   the
, former president was largely concen-
! trati'd   in   the   attraction   of   foreign
| capital  to Mexico.    Franchises grant-
1 ed  to  Canadian,  I'nited   States,  Bng-
lish  and  other  capitalists   were   well
������ protected, and little or no fear existed
; for the safety of their properties. De-
! voting most attention in this and other ways to the up-building and devel-
I opment    of    Mexico. ' Diaz, naturally
. enough, became known as the friend of
the capitalists.    He neglected the general   welfare  eef  tbe   Mexican  people,
and did very little to Improve social
and  educational  facilities.   Discontent
arising,  the   long   reign   of   President
Diaz terminated abruptly.
De la Barra then became provisional]
president, and was in Hm- time sue!
ceeded by Madero, who had his hands
full with an active revolution.    Apparently lv took presidential office with
tin   idea that the' Mexican nation, a
��� large' proportion of which are Indians,
. could be governed by love, good will
and nothing mere' strenuous. The vital
necessity of a strong army was over- '
looke'd. with the result that the revo-i
' lotion assume el  considerable    propor-'
The'   Mexican   army   was   strength-
ened, probably due to the- Influent f
Madero, the finance' minister, and
I cousin of the president at that time.
Th. army was then working hanno
niously with tin' government .e novelty for Mexico. Then came Huerta's
presidential re-inn.
Living  Standard  Low.
The-  standard   of  living  in   Mexico
' Is  extremely low.    The average  Mex- '
lean  is conteT.1.   with   low   wages,  an
; abode', the' only solid p:irt of which is :
the roof, and  poor food  eaten  not  at
regular intervals, but only when hunger demands.    The Indian  in  Mexico
.weeks only enough days eaeh week
to sat:s:v his wants. This is due to a
care-free .-pirit rather than to slu-e'i
indolence This, gem rally speaking,
Is the picture of the- masses of Mexico, rich in natural resource's atnl an
Ideal climate. The Mexicans have-
arts of their own, and are < Xpert le-ath-

In short, In Mexico, arc the makings of a splendid nation. Diaz, as
president, was unbalanced, De la

tii)' background, an enigma. .Madero.

Mi'xii'o's need is a well-balanced,

The object in view should be the raising of the living standard in Mexico:

Counting   from   the  western   terminal, this tunnel is the fourth. Two are

The total length of tunneling, ac-1

"As soon as the work is under way,"
continued Mr. Williams, "it is planned
to put on double shifts and keep to

about 112 feet a day in each tunnel."

Then' are' awkward tacts ranged
.i^alnst Mr. Wilson, as well as strong
personalities. In the Baltimore "platform." on which he stood for the
presidency, he approved of the exemption of American coastwise shipping.
It is true that he said little on the
subject, but a general approval of the
exemption as Justifiable can be cited
f:om his statements. Of course, he is
, accused of Inconsistency, but. like all
; big men, be does not trouble himself
j much about that charge. He has
changed his mind, A man would in-
deed be dishonest who never did that.
i Moreover, it is a proof of Mr. Wilson's
high courage that the e.ise with which
��� the inconsistency can b" alleged evl-
| ele-ntly did not cause him to modify a
I word of his passionate feeling which
breathes through his message to congress. Tlie State of feeling in the
I'nited States is, nevertheless, formid
able. The Times' correspondent says
that not for many years has the resentment against C.reat Britain he-en
so strong. There is a wave of anger
which for the moment has e'ligulfed
Mr. Wilson's popularity, ami phrases
about the natural enmity of the American (agle and tin- British lion are
lie-ing brought Into the' light out of
dusty receptacles of the mind where
we- hnd hoped that they would lie forgotten forever. The Elijah Jograms
are apparently waiting to be brought
to life again, anil they will utt'-r "great
defiances"   If   Mr.   Wilson   does   not
handle tli<- situation with extraordinary care, It is unfortunate that
when Anglo-phobia is thus raising Its
head the Issue should be connected
unnecessarily with foreign politics.
One of the most frequent criticisms
of Mr. Wilson's policy Is that he is
buying British support against Mexico and Japan. There is, of course, no
truth   whatever  in  the suspicion.
An indefinitely long fight In the senate lies ahead. There Is a possibility
that some of Mr. Wilson's friends will
be willing to save what they can out
of a difficult situation and accept a
provisional repeal of the exemption
clause. We certainly hope for much
more than that. We do not care, we
repeat, about the commercial aspect
of the matter. But we are intensely,
even [passionately, concerned that
the Anglo-Saxon tradition of straightforward leading over international d c
uments should not be Injured by the
countrymen of Washington and Un-
coin, If Mr. Wilson refrains from appealing to expediency, and simply continues In the spirit of his message to
demand that right shall be doue because it is right and for no other reason, we believe that he will prevail.
A man of character succeeds bv virtue
of his character when all the odds
seem to be against him. To act "like
a gentleman" will he to make a most
powerful appeal to the Anglo-Saxen
spirit of the United States. Mr. Wilson Will be on safe- ground if he says
