The last conference of the South
American mediators was held during

the ambassadors would start for Niagara by way of New York tomorrow

Interest had shifted, however, from
the preparation for the mediation to
dispatches confirming the fall of Tam-

North Battleford, Sask.. May 14 ���
The first day's proceedings of the
Western Canada Colonization and Development convention came to a clone
tonight. Nothing was done today to
wards the organizing of a league on
the lines laid down by Commissioner
N. G. Neill, the entire program being
taken up with speeches which had no
direct bearing on the proposition. Tomorrow it is expected that a t-taft will
be made toward seeing if it is feasible
to connect the different bodies and
governments representee! at the convention into a comprehensive organ
ization for the purpose of colonization
and development, to tee what can be
done towards the bringing to a successful outcome the plan to have ten
million people in Western Canada in
ten years.
The feature of the afternoon session was the address made hy Dr. J.

C. P. R. He laid a great deal of stress
on the ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

J. Gordon Smith, representing the
British Columbia government, gave
such a glowing account e>f the natural
resources and scenic beauties of the
province that Dr. Rutherford declared
that the description exceeded any he
had ever been privileged to read concerning the Kingdom of Heaven. Mr.
Smith went into the matter exhaustively and supplied the meeting with
a great many facts and statistics.
Frank Davis and Herman
Clark Will Be Executed
This Mominjr.
Both Men Apparently Indifferent and
Show No Emotion When Their
Fate li Announced.
At 8 o'clock this morning Frank
Davis and Herman Clark will pay the
death penalty for the murder of
Policeman Archibald In Vancouver a
year ago this month. Up to a late*
hour this morning Sheriff Armstrong
had received no word that might possibly postpone the execution of the
two men at the last hour.
The final details for the gruesome
event have been completed and arrangements made to carry out the
law's decree promptly at the minute
of eight.
The only action that could avert
their death would be the Intervention of the minister of justice at Ob-
tawa, but in view of the rei:ent decision of the supreme court there is
hardly the slightest possibility that
this action will be taken.
In speaking to The News last evening regarding the coming execution
Sheriff Armstrong Btated that both
men had been notified of their approaching end, and that to all appearance both were completely Indifferent. When told that the supreme
court had ruled against him Clark
took the information stoclally, never
uttering a  word or  showing  in    the
property controlled by the Guggen
heim interests, had not been disarmed. This was explained at military headquarters as being due to the
fact that It had not yet been found
convenient to send men to take possession of the guns which were reported stacked in the mine office
ready to be turned over to the troops.

as the fe'deral commanders are able
to make this blockade really effective
it must be respected by foreign shipping. The recognition of an effective
blockade by a belligerent does not. It
is said, involve political recognition
<if either party to the strife.
Another phase of the complicated
.situation that attracted much attention was the embarrassment which
success brings to the constitutionalists
in the form of demands for compensation for losses to foreigners within

Ottawa, May 14.--The feature of
the debate on the government's C, N.
importance Of mixed farming j R. bond guarantee proposals was undoubtedly the speech in opposition to
the matter by II. B. Bennett, Conservative member for Calgary. Mr. Bennett commenced speaking at a quarter to four and was still going strong
when the house adjourned at 6
o'clock for dinner. He resumed at 8
o'clock and did not conclude till 9:30.
The speech was doubtless considerably extended on account of numer
ouse challenges of Mr. Bennett's statements offered by Hon. Arthur
Meighen, solicitor general. For fully
an hour the proceedings resolved
themselves into a duel between these
two highly trained legal minds.
On several occasions they did not
mince words In referring to one irh-
Promoters Called "Mendicants."
Mr.  Bennett was very    severe    In
his    strictures    of    Mackenzie    and
Mann, whom he described as "mendicants."     His   suggestions   were     that
there  should  be an  inquiry  into  the
affairs Of the C. N. H. by a royal commission  or else a  parliamentary    investigation.   The government    shonlel

One Result of Seizure.
"The seizure of Vera Cruz-has had
this definite result -no American is
safe in that part of Mexico controlled
by Huerta. Before that, we were all
right. What all of us complain about
is that wit have been driven from our
jobs and this government h;is accomplished nothing towards restoring
the peace cf Mexico.
"We were and are as loyal a bunch
of American citizens down there as
one can find in the states. We did not
object to the taking of Vera Cruz if
the United States forces had kept going and occupied the capital. Stopping
the occupation of that seaport Is what
put us in danger and made it necessary  for  us to  flee."

It was upon reaching Vera Cruz that
we first learned that thi're was no war
but a so-called peaceful occupation
that drove us out of the country and
while we were highly elated to be
among our own troops, we expressed
Indignation at having been driven
from the country for nothing."
The kindness shown by Sir Lionel
Cnrden, Mr. Jones said, was Inspired
by a similar act performed at the time
of the fall of the Madero government,
by then United States minister Henry
Lane Wilson, when he gave asylum to
British subjects and saved many lives.
"I find that General Huerta Is much
misunderstood In the States," continued the American. "Iu the first place
he Is not the drunkard that some here
claim. 1 have seen him frequently
day after day and never noticed him
show any signs of Intoxication. He Is
a man of rare personal courage and is
a general. He has not only fougbt his
enemies In Mexico for the last fifteen
months, but the United States as well
and held his own agalnBt all odds. We
Americans admire that grit anyhow.
"Knowing him as I do I can say that
Qeneral Hureta will not abdicate for
anybody. Villa ls easily the strongest man In Mexico today, and with him

Villa or Zapata get in. These two men
are conducting Independent revolts
and what will happen when they meet
in the capital no one can foretell. As
it looks just now Zapata is likely to
get there first.
"Just at the present  Huerta Is not
devoting much attention to any attack
on Mexican City.    He is preparing to
fight the  United  States.    Strange as
I it may seem to Americana, it Is never-
j less true that 91) out of every 100 Mex-
! leans believe that they will have little
or  no   trouble  in  defeating  the   Unlt-
I ed   States  on  land.    Oeneral   Huerta

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 marlced article imported from the U. S. found that something had gone wrong with the goods, and as there
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
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, 1 ��fjgl Son28 X^lSt

There are many article of staple consumption���
articles which every drygoods house, chemist and

of producers has led to conisderable deterioration of

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 it 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 resourcefullness is the ad-

Victoria, .May 14.----Before many
days have elapsed the Immigration
authorities at this port will be faced
by a problem that is likely to be
fraivht with interesting consequences.
With a course set for Victoria, the
Japanese steamer Komagata Maru.
under charter of Ourdit Singh, a
wealthy Hindu, with a complement of
t-A H Hindus aboard, is fast nearing this
coast from the Orie'iit. Dr. Milne, the
Dominion immigration officer at this
port, has been arivised that the Komagata Main is well on her transpacific
voyage, but at the date eif her depar-
ture. from the Japan coast is indefinite, it is impossible to state just when !
the vessel, with the Hindu colony
at"*ard,  will put in an  appearance.
It is understood, through the immi-
"������ ien department that the Koma-
gata Maru was scheduled to clear Yo-'
kohama about May 1 for Victoria, antl
I in that event the vessel Is not expect-
I ed to show up at William Head before

1 the Komagata Maru from Shanghai,

"Yesterday afternoon a reporter of
the China Press climbed up the' gangway of the vessel and among the
crowd of tall, turbaned voyagers, he
succeeded iu arousing the character.
Curdit Singh, from an afternoon nap.
In the cabin, with a score of others
interested and curious about, he talked with the gray-whiskered, kinelly-
eyee! patriarch who is leading his people to what he hopes to be the open
dcor of opportunity in Canada
the a'd of a voluble interpreter,
dit Singh told the story of his
Test Voyage.
"He goes, according to his
story, to test the justness of the
ish toward all its people.    Chief
showed that the Idea possessed them
that a British subject was a British
subject, whether he lived in India or
South Africa or Canada, and was to be
treated on terms of equality, permitted
to live anel go where he chose in the
British  empire.
"That the feeling of    the    shipload
of Indians is one that will  make an
issue  in  the  near future    is    amply
evidenced   from    other    sources.    'If
the   British   imperial   government  endorses the policy cf  Hindu exclusion
from   the  colonies it  will  precipitate
the fiercest revolution in    the history
of the world,' declared Professor Slid-;
rindra   Bose,  of   Iowa   University,  on .
February  14,  before  a  committee  of
the congress of the. United States met
to discuss the question of Hindu ex-;
elusion  from  the  United  States.    He
was  appearing io oppose such exclu-,
sion  on  the ground  that the Hindus
were   a   kindred   Ayran   people   who
were' entitled to the rights of British
Canadians Oppose  Plan.
"And just as the Indians are growing   more  persistent  on   the  proposition as they see it, Canada    and the
Canadians become,    more emphatic in
the  matter of  exclusion.    The  royal
commission   appointed   to  investigate
the  question  of  immigration  to    the
country last month advised the total
exclusion ot the Asiatic races���a conclusion reached as the result ot the
conviction that the    Asiatic    peoples
connot      be      absorbed      into      the
western  communities,    even    though
they became Canadians hy legal process.    Still    more recently it has been
reported as coming from a member of
the   Canadian   parliament   for   British
Columbia   that  the   people  eif  British
Columbia would go to the last lengths
In  resisting  Asiatic  immigration.
"Whatever  is  the   outcome  of
issue   which   is   becoming   vital,     the
Komagata Maru's voyage will he followed  with  interest by the world as
she steams  to the Canadian  shores."
In a year In this hospital than I
should have learnt ln five years outside of it.
There waB an old lady who was,
I am proud to think, a great friend
of mine. She came to the hospital,
not to be cured, but to die. It was
the end of a life of misery, brought
about by the ill-treatment cf ber
husband. But every time I had a
chat with her it came round to him
sooner or later, and Bhe would tell
me what a fine man he was, and beg
me to pray for him.
And the patience of these sufferers! 1 knew a man���a man ot good
ee'ucation, who had fallen low���who
suffered almost Incredible pain. But
be was always smiling, and he had
his own way ol explaining hiB Buffering. "It's the Lord's scrubbing
, brush." he would say to me. "It is
His way of cleaning my dirty soul,
and 1 am glad to be made elean."
At times, needless to say, I get
some queer jobs thrust upon me.
Many of the people who come into
a hospital object to the good, but
plain, food which is provided. Many
a time I have been implored to use
my Influence to get a patient a hearty
meal of fish and chips!
The    grumblers���and    you     find
grumblers in every hospital, just as
surety aa you   find   saints   In   every
ward���wi��m to regard the pat-son aa
the official Tecelver ot complaints.   If
they have anything to say, they ��ay
'< It to me, and It requires quite a lot
of tact to deal with them.
But one does one's best, and one>
is learning all the time. The roughest old bundle of grievances has a
heart, and all you have to do is to
lind your way into it. To do that
may take time, burf I have learnt
i never to despair, and never to give
the | up hope.
Take them all round, and people
are better than they seem. I am
certain that at the bottom of human
nature there is good.

Montreal, May 13.���Crowds of folks
gathered in Phillips Bquare to watch
the uncrating of the two great zronze
bas-reliefs which have arrived In town
:'rom ['"ranee, and which will decorate
the east and west sides of the King
Kdward memorial there.
Only one of them was visible in its
entirety. This was a group representing "Industry." while the other,
from what could he seen through the
racks in its casing, was a group of
four figures, which J. G. Picher. of the
St. Lawrence Marble Works, who is
in charge of the building of the monument, thought was synonmous of
England, Scotland. Wales and Ireland.
This latter group is destined for the
Wi st side of the monument, and in
spite of the fact that it is hollow,
weighs F.bout four tons, the "Industry"
group  being  slightly  lighter.
Both are of beautiful design and
proportion and are exteremely creditable to Phllllpe Herbert, the Montreal sculptor,-who is in France sup-

It is expected they will both be In

What the disposition of the statues
of Rameses will be, is accurately told
lv the Cairo correspondent of The
London Times: "It has been practically decided, provided that no unforeseen difficulties occur, to transport the two giaant statues of Rameses
I., from ancient Memphis to Cal.o.
where they will be erected in the new
Station Snuare that has recency been
made. There has never been any
nuesllon of bringing down statues
from Thebes (Luxor). Considerable
repairs will have to he done to one,
if not both, of the Memphis statues,
as it is feared the legs will not be
���strong enough to support the bodies.
Special arrangements are being made
for the transport to Cairo, and 1 understand that the staie railways are
constructing special trucks and ad-
lustinti the line at various points,
such as the stations, where It is not
wide enough. The total cost of erection and transport is at present estimated at $1,500,000.

While Working In Big  Bend Country
Unfortunate Man   Fell   into the
Revelstoke,   May   14.    The   body of
Charles     Elliott    of     Kamloops   was :
brought Into Revelstoke last night by
Surveyor Christie of Messrs. Christie.
Dawson  and   Haywood   of   Kamloops.
Klliott   was  drowned  on   Sunday in
Downie  creek,  about  45   miles  north !
of  Revelstoke.    With   half    a    dozen
others of the survey gang he left Revelstoke last week to work in the Big
Bend district.   They left em the steam- j

On   Sv#day   Elliott   waa   seen   In  thej
water   of   Deiwnle   creek   at   a   paint j
where   the  current   was   riming  with i
the velocity eif a mill race, he having j
apparently  slipped  while  crossing on I
a log.
Elliott  was a  powerful   man  and a |
good swimmer. He was seen swimming I
down  stream  and  his  comrades  saw j
him clamber out of the water on to a !
rock   some  distance   below    where  he

be reached, however, he stepped or
slipped off the rock  into  the  stream
again.    He was never seen alive again. |
His hotly was recovered from the rocks j
a mile further down, four hours later. [
The supposition is  that  Klliott was j

Transvaal���The Assessor Simply
Counts the Huts.
In Canada, the federal or provincial poll tax collector Is an unknown
person, but this is not tbe case in
other parts of tbe British Empire.
Kor instance in South Africa, such a
lax is collected from tho individual
by authorized officials of the Government in person, says The Family Herald and Weekly Star.
There is a single tax, called a poll
or hut tax, levied on all native married men in the Transvaal.
Curious as it niay*sound to us, this
amounts to $10 a year for every
wife! As each wife has her own hut
er house, no matter how many wives
a man may have, tbe connection between the term poll or but tax la
easily seen.
Possibly the Incidence of the tax is
expected to militate against the practice of polygamy.
Hut the collection of these taxes la
not effected without some difficulty,
since the native population of the
Transvaal, estimated at two millions.
Is scattered throughout the rural districts, and instead of being called upon to pay their dues at some town In
the district in which they live, the
collectors go to the native villages or
cainp near the farms on which the
Kaffir Is employed and receives the
The Transvaal Is divided Into districts, each district having Its native
commissioner who decides all native
disputes, and who tries all cases in
his district. Besides this be haa
charge of the collection of all native-
taxes, and also directs the spending
of native grants from the treasury.
To assist him in this work he has
usually two or three white clerks, a
native' Interpreter and a staff of native policemen. An Interpreter seems
an unnecessary member of his staff
when It is considered that tho commissioner has to know the Kaffir vernacular thoroughly, but there are so
many different tribes and so many
different dialects that lt Is absolutely
necessary for him to keep one.
The commissioner finds lt best, to
conduct all conversations through the
Interpreter, as it tends to uphold bis
dignity and gives far more weight to
his Judgment when he ls trying cases.
A native has much more respect for a
white man whom he cannot address
directly, than for one whom he could
talk to without an interpreter.
The collection of the poll or head
tax Is generally preceded by summoning all the chiefs of the different
tribes tn the district to an Indaba,
or council meeting, with the native
commissioner, at his headquarters.
He then tells when he will collect the
taxes from tbe different tribes and
, Informs them ot any chance In the
amount of the tax levied and any
other matters that may concern them.
The chiefs In turn Inform their
tribes as to the arrangements and
later on the commissioner travels
through the district to collect the
taxes and a journey which generally
occupies two months, as the territory
to be covered is always great.
When the commissioner starts on
his travels, he carries a good supply
of provisions and camp equipment,
because to reach the greater number
of tbe natives he has to leave, civilization far behind him. He considers
himself fortunate if he can get a roof
over his head. Generally he will have
to sleep In bis tent, by far preferable to a native hut which ls very.,

As lhe natives cannot read. It
would be useless to send them a written notice of what they owe in the
way of taxes, so a very ingenious and
simple method is adopted.
The commissioner has his district
laid out in sections, generally, with
natural borders. When he starts to -
collect In a section he sends out abont
twenty police boys to round up the ���
Inhabitants. As they come to each
kraal they can see at a glance how
many wives a man owns by the number of huts. They then give the Kaffir a small piece of flat stick, usually
a creeper about at thick as a leaef
pencil, with the bark peeled off It.
They put a nick in this for each wife

Declaring a temporary truce in the
troubles of the intermediate league,
Sapperton and Burnaby clashed at
Queen's park last night, the former
taking an easy victory over the suburbanites to the score of 9-0.
Wiser heads filled the breach in
the turmoil regarding the eligibility
oi Patchell and Stoddart and while
the affair Is not yet settled, a con
ference to be held later this week between the clubs and prominent lacrosse men of the city will likely result in tbe league being kept intact.
In the game last night Sapperton
had an easy time at the expense of
Burnaby scoring one goal In the first
quarter, two in the second and three
each cf tbe last two periods, while at
the same time whitewashing the opposition. Two accidents happene-d,
Cameron of Sapperton getting a nasty
gash on the head, while a Burnaby
player was placed hors de combat
when the ball struck him in the eye.
Chris Cameron and Oeorge Mc.Mur-

out of sympathy with the dog tax.
The collection of the taxes Is usually a picturesque affair. The commissioner sits at a table placed In the
shelter of a tree, whilst the natives
squat around ln a half circle with tbe
Interpreter and a native police sergeant. The latter calls up the natives
to pay their taxes, starting with the
chief of the tribe, followed by the
Indians or head men and then the
lesser members of the tribes.
The sergeant acts as the go-between, collecting the money and
handing back the written receipt
which the commissioner gives, the
payments being generally made In
sovereigns. There are very few natives who cannot pay their taxes, as.
there is lots of work to be obtained
ln the mines and other Industries.
