The restoration of the embargo on

he regarded the seizure of Vera Cruz
as a violation of Mexican sovereignty,
bad been considered by the administration.
While    Mexican    constitutionalists
here   protested   that   Carranza's   real'
attitude   was   friendly,   the  American
government     decided     to     take     no
chances  and   abruptly   stopped   ship- j

General Carranza Warned.

Wilson and Lincoln Compared.
Rome. April 23. ���The Tribuna compares President Wilson to President
Lincoln. Both, it says, were possessed
of the same biblical inspiration, the
same vigorous puritauism, the same
combatant ideals. Neither was satisfied to remain content in his own
uprightness, but wished others to be
upright. Both were pacificists and yet
both had to assume the leadership In

year penitentiary terms, but no proceedings were taken against Buxton.
The Ashdown Hardware company,
however, laid charges of theft and of
receiving stolen goods against Buxton, who admitted in the trial of his
associates of having induced a boy
in the Ashdown company's employ to
steal a revolver for Krafchenko's
use. The revolver was stolen and
turned over to Buxton. Today he was
arraigned before Provincial Magistrate Bonnycastle on the two charges
mentioned. The deputy attorney general for the province, however, entered a nolle prosequi, or no prosecution, and the magistrate dismissed
the prisoner, who was released after

The Duke of Connaught as governor general of Canada, has espoused the cause of the boy scouts throughout
the Dominion and is taking an active part in raising a
central fund to provide for the cost of controlling and directing the boy scout work, to be applied more especially
in covjring the salary and expenses of a travelling secretary.
His Royal Highness has had the opportunity of watching the work of the scouts both on this side of the water
and in the mother land and it is evident from the interest
which he is taking in the movement that its value as a
builder of good citizens is highly rated. With this in
mind, the Duke of Connaught has made an appeal to all
the provinces for voluntary subscriptions to the cause
and through Lieutenant Governor Paterson he has asked
British Columbia to do its share. The governor general's
personal aim is to place the boy scout movement in Canada on a regular and satisfactory footing before the close
of his term of office and he has requested the lieutenant
governor to appeal for subscriptions of any amount that
will indicate the interest of the people of British Columbia in a scheme which he considers of growing importance
to the Dominion.
So far this province, in common with the other western members of the confederation, has given but scant attention to the boy scout cause, while the eastern provinces
have responded most liberally. Under the circumstances
it looks as though it were up to British Columbia to show
that she recognizes the value of the movement by a handsome list of voluntary subscriptions.

"The News" School Garden    |o\Vd   LUfflbCr   &
Competition Department
Already there is a large amount of
interest being taken in the school garden competition and a large number
of boys and girls have been calling up
Tile News office on the phone asking
for pointers and bits of .ii.'ormation.
There's one Important thing to remember. It Is a good deal better to
cultivate a fair sized plot thoroughly
than to undertake the handling of a
big piece of ground and not keep it
In the club competition for five boys
or five girls any vacant lot will do.
In this class nothing smaller than 3.1
feet frontage will be considered, but
anything up to 66 feet will do.
Size of  Vegetable  Plot.
In the individual vegetable garden
competition a plot of ground twenty-
five feet by five feet will be found
very convenient to handle. This
might be made a little wider, but having it narrow makes It easy to weed
anil gives you every chance to pay
close attention to all your plants.
In the flower garden competition
there is plenty of scope for all the
boys and girls. If the plot entered includes a lawn, the condition of the
grass, the edges of the beds, the shape
of the beils and all other features will
be taken into consieratiou in awarding
the prizes.
As the Idea of the competition, aside
from the Incentive it oilers the boys
and girls to tafte an interest in gardening. Is to make this city beautiful,
the greater the results the heavier It
will total up In tallying the points.
Don't Forget to Register.
Another important thing to remember is to register vour   plot, address
and name.   Give this to your teacher I
and it will reach the proper hands.
Also don't forget that The News
will be open to receive anil answer all
questions on gardening that you wish
to ask. These will be answered each
Friday  morning as  they come  In.
Then again, write and tell us how j
you are getting along.

About tin- middle of tlie month It
! will be safe to sow most of the hardy
annuals. Very brilliant effects may
be obtained in beds and bora��rs from
' those, and the colors to be found
amongst them allow of the most ,-lab-
borate color schemes. Befor? sowing,
the ground should be deeply dug and
well manured and a good turtle i prepared for the seed by a liberal use of
the rake.
The seeds of most annuals are so
fine that only a very slight covering
of soil will be required.
A generally BSfe guide is to cover
to the same depth as the thickness of
the seeds to be sown.

There Is a Right Way and a Wrong
Way to Do Your Planting.
There are many kinds of vegetable
seeds to be sown this month. Some
people talk of "putting In a garden"
and do the whole seeding in the course
of a day or two. This Is one way of
doing It. but like everything else there
Is a right way and a wrong, and this
method is assuredly wrong.
Carrots, beets, onions, lettuce and
turnips may be sown any time now
and aother sowing of peas. It is a
good plan to put in sowings of peas
at intervals of two weeks up to the
end of June, as this assures a continuous supply of tender and delicious
green peas.
Turnips and carrots are best worked
the same way. but have a main crop
of both for winter use.
Lettuce, too, is best when young
and crisp, therefore to keep up a continuous supply, sow a pinch of seed
earh week and transplant as they
grow, as many as you think you will
require weekly. Kadishes treat the
same way.

An important clause, dealing with .
the renewal of masters' and mates'
certificates, is introduced in the proposed amendment to the Canada Shipping act, which recently passed the
first reading at Ottawa.
Clause 57 reads: "A certificate of
competency of service as mdsi i >
mate, other than for foreign-going or
limited foreign-going ships, Bhall not
be valid (a) after the period of five
years from its date, but a certificate
may bo renewed from time to time by
endorsement under the hand of the
minister, or other proper officer of* u��
department, or bythe grant of a new
certificate, at the option of the minister."
"(2) Every certificato of competency or service as master or mate,
other than for foreign-going ships,
which at the commencement of this
act has been in force for five years
or upwards, shall he void unless renewed as hereinbefore provided,
Within one year from the commencement of  this  act."
"(X) No certificate of competency
o: service, whether granted before or
after the commencement of this act,
shall be renewed, unless the holder
of the same at the time of renewal is
British subject."
This means that masters and mates
will have to renew their certificates
every five years, whereas, In the past,
the certificates have held good for an
indefinite period.
Certificates of Compentey.
Dealing with grades of certificates
ol competency, Clause .19, reads: "Cer-
j tlflcates of competency shall he grant-
��� ed  to masters  and   mates  in  accord
j ance with this for each of the following   grades:    (a) Foreign-going,    (bi
Limited   foreign-going,     (cl   Coasting
] (dl  Home trade.    |e)    Inland waters
j (fl   Minor waters.
"(2) Those grades shall rank accord ng to the order above stated, so
! that the holder of a certificate of any
grade shall be entitled to all the rlghls
and privileges of holders of certlfl- I
cat,'* of lower grades."
"(3)    In the first three grades, cer i
tificates may be granted as follows   '
(a)  Ordinary, which  shall entitle the
holder to go in any ship,  (b) Certificates of fore-and-aft rigged ships only
(c)   Certificates   for  steamships only
"(4) in the other grades, certificates may be granted for the following classes: (a) Passenger steam
ships, (b) Cargo steamship, (c) Perry
Steamship. (<1) Tugboat, (e) Square
rigged sailing ships, (f) Fore-and-aft
rigged  sailing ship.
"(5) Those classes shall rank ac
cording to the above order stated for j
steamships and sailing (vessels, respectively, so that the lawful ho'iler
of a steamship certificate In a lower
class of steamships, and so that lawful
holder of a certificate for square-
rigged sailing shipB shall  bo entitled
to all the rights and privileges of a
i holder of a certificate for fore-and-aft
j rigged sailing ships."
"(61    The holders of  sea-goin  cer-
j tificates, issued before the commencement of this act. shall be entitled nn-
' on surrender of the same to the mln-
', ister, to have issued  to them foreign-
' going certificates under this act."
Colors for Merchant Ships.
Clause  32,   also   new,   reads:   "The
red   ensign   usually   worn   by   British
merchant   ships,   defaced     with     the
Arms oi Canada in the fly, is hereby
I declared to be tine proper national colors for merchant ships registered  in
Canada, except in the case of any ship
for  the  time  being  allowed  to  wear
any   other  national   colors   in   pursuance of a warrant from his  majesty
the king, or from the admiralty."

Burnaby Councillors Desire More
"We require more particulars as to
when and how this money will bo
spent before Burnaby takes any action in the matter of contributing
$7000 to the North Ann harbor corn-
rnisqinn." This statement was obtained yesterday from a Burnaby
councillor following the report that
the municipality had ignored the Invitation to make a tour of the river
which took place from Eburne on
Wednesday and waa attended by representatives from Smith Vancouver,
Richmond and Point Grey.
"Burnaby had no intention of joining yesterday's party," continued the
councillor. "The report of the committee that attended the meeting held
at Eburne last Saturday stated that
the harbor commissioners did not pay
sufficient attention to the gathering
to attend and after such treatment
we still retain our Missourlan disposition."
It is probable that a delegation will
attend next Monday's meeting of the
Hurnaby council in order to explain

I refused a number of offers from fed-
lenlj garrisons to join him if he
1 would take the field against the
j United States.
"To all of these offers we have re-
| turned negative replies," said Pes-
Iqueira. "We cannot join forces with
I Huerta for any purposes."
Villa Guarded- in  His Answers.
(ieneral   Villa   received   reports   tonight and  made guarded  replies to a
: number  of  questions.    Asked  if  for
eigners would be protected should the
rebels be brought Into war against
the  United  States,  he  replied:
"Our forces. In un event which I
hope will not come about, would take
the opportunity of proving to the
worid that we are civilized people
and capable of following all rules of
civilized warfare. I would give perfect guarantee to all neutral foreigners and am willing to vouch for
this personally."
When asked whether he would Join
forces with Huerta in war against
the  United  States, he said:
"As I have already stated, such an
event is Improbable! but to answer
your question, I must state that I am
a soldier and am ready to follow the
orders of my chief, (Ieneral Carranza."
General Villa, when asked to express an opinion on General Car-
ran/.a's note to President Wilson, replied:
"It was written with the mi in of a
Saxon and the soul of a Latin."
Refuses to Make Comment.
He would not make any statement
as to his opinion regarding President
Wilson's message of yesterday to
General Carranza beyond the following:
"I am a soldier and not a diplomat
and in that case It would be improper for me even to comment on
that matter."
Pesqueira made the following formal comment on President Wilson's
statemtnt of today:
"The wishes and intentions which
he manifests to respect by all means
the sovereignty of my country is an
other evidence of the great mental
and moral standard of President Wilson and I expect future developments
to further prove it."
There were no official communications between General Carranza and
President Wilson today, although a
statement was expected from Washington.

states has been Influenced by the
fact that, for b time, Governor Car-]
ranza. the nominal head of the in-
surgents In northern Mexico, was a
school friend of President Wilson
and the further fact that Mrs. Ma-
ooro, the wife of the late unfortunate
president, of Mexico, is an intimate
friend Of President Wilson's family,
and took refuge with that family at
Princeton after the death of her husband.''
Regarding Huerta.
Regarding the action of the I'nited
sttites in Bending its fleet to Tamplco ami Vera Cruz to enforce the
demand that Huerta must salute the
American flag, the writer sees In that
action the possibility of B widening of
the breach between Great Britain
the United States.    He says:
"The British government has formally recognized the administration
of General Huerta. and lias persistently refused to take any action that
would embarrass that administration.
This fact gives special significance
to Sir Edward Orey's recent state-
ment in the British house of commons iu regard to the possibility of
obtaining reparation for the murder
of Benton, sir Edward Orey said:
'I must repeat what 1 said last week.
thai there is nothing we can effectively do under the present conditions; that the government In Mexi
CO City lias no control over the territory where the death of Benton
took place, nor over those n sponsible
for his death. We cannot, therefore,
under the present circumstances, secure reparation through that government.'
"Sir Edward Grey had no intention
of assisting the revolutionists of the
north, under Villa and Carranza,
by placing difficulties in the way of
President Huerta. Sir Edward said:
'Under ordinary circumstances we
might have taken action at a port of
Mexico, by way of blockade. Under
present conditions, If we took such
action, and it had any effect, it
could only result In giving assistance
to the contending party In north
j Mi xico. To take action that would
positively help those from whom we
demand reparation, simply for the
sake of appearing to do something,
would be worse than futile.'
Different View Taken.
"The action which the British foreign minister regarded as 'worse than
futule,' Is the very action that President Wilson has taken.
"On tie- other hand, the British
foreign minister took particular
p.tins to declare that satisfaction will
be demanded of Villa and Carranza,
If ever they seem-.' control of the
federal  government  of   Mexico     He
said: 'But we do not mean to let.
; the matter rest, and as soon as by
any change of clrcumtsances, it is
In our power to carry the matter further, we shall lake whatever steps
may   be practicabl,.'
"li is clear that Sir Edward Grey
and President Wilson, despite their
apparent,   cordiality,    now    take      two
bassador,  who also  recognized  Huer
ta;  and  President Wilson has doclar-
i ed again and again, that Huerta must
be  removed.     To  effect   lluerta's  re-
' moval,   President  Wilson  has  coo.net-
j ted   with  Carranza,   his    old    school
I friend,  but   a  mere  figurehead,    and
' has removed nil restrictions upon the
supply of arms and ammunition. The
1 bullet     thai     killed     Benton   was  no
I doubt    recently    imported    from    the
| I'nited States.
Dominate   Country?
"The blockade of Tamplco and Vera
Cruz   is   in   line   with   the   persistent
policy of the I'nited States, which  Is
! to enable Villa to supplant Huerta.
"But what then?
"If Villa succeeds in capturing
Mexico City, and in establishing his
: government there, the British gov-
! eminent is in honor bound to exact
from this new government which I
the United States will have set up
reparation for the death of Benton.
"Under these circumstances will the
United States persist in placing Villa]
and his associates in power?   Or does |
President   Wilson's   policy   mean   the
complete   political  domination  of  the]
whole country  from  the  Rio Grande
smith to Panama?
"Huerta. alone. has the confidence and support of the church, and
| of the commercial and industrial in-
' Stltutions in Mexico. His personal
Character is above reproach, despite
all thai Is said to the contrary; and.
given anything like a fair deal by
foreign nations, he is bound at length
to establish peace and order. His real
difficulties have been created by Intrigues at Washington and not by the
revolutionists of the north. It is
only the attitude of tlie British government which gives the government
of Mexico, and all who have commercial or other interests in that republic, possible hope and  confidence."

Tbe "keen edge of self-interest" Is keenest in the morning. Thus
the impression made by advertising in a morning newspaper is stronger than that made by advertising which is "glanced at" after a tiring
and an enthusiasm-capping day.
As you begin the day, you want to be up to date in your knowledge of what's going on In the world���so you read your morning paper NECESSARILY, As you begin the day, if the day's routine calls
for some buying of goods, or chattels, you want knowledge of the latest offers and proffers made by the gtores- so again you turn to your
morning paper.    For it is TODAY'S PAPER.
As people want the last fact, the latest developmeuts, ln news,
so they do in advertising. Assuming that a woman intends to purchase certain things, and plans to go to the Btore some time during
the day, It Is natural that she should want to know what tbe stores
offer in relation to tbe immediate buying opportunities sbe seeks.
So she will read the ads In her morning paper���for that is the last
paper she will read before going shopping.
THE MORNING PAPER'S advertisements supply shoppers with
the information they seek and act upon in the day's buying.
Is a rested mind not easier to impress, more apt to consider an
offer or a selling argument, than a TIRED .MIND?
The morning finds the rested mind  -the evening the tired    mind.
Advertising in a good  morning paper is INTERESTING  because the
reader  is  alert and   interested  in  his own   interests���not  tired,  blue
nnd bored.
A good morning newspaper Is an influence���not a mere incident -
in the daily lives of people.
The advertising in its columns shares in that influence- is a part
Of it. A morning newspaper's contents are edited and prepared with
the knowledge that every line In the paper will be read-not every line
by every reader of course. But every line, ads and all. will have its
One of the large items of expense in the making of a dependable
morning newspaper is the obtaining and VERIFYING OF FACTS in
connection with the news. Facts are sometimes hard to get���sometimes they cost a great deal of money, Always, in the making of a
real newspaper THEY Ml'ST BE OBTAINED, at whatever cost of
effort or expense. Conjectures as to the facts and details in such news
events us accidents and disasters is n serious shortcoming in a newspaper, involving perhaps needless anxiety for hundreds of people.
The renders of a newspaper to whom a news event has any special
interest will always want to know the actual facts and details. And
is it not your experience that, in most cases, these must be found in
a morning newspaper? The advertising in a morning newspaper���as a
matter of course���receives corresponding consideration.

tu prevent, if possible, the deportation of the five Hindus.
In the meantime the immigration
men had hastily consulted the Nippon
Vusen Kaisha agents and it was decided to outwit the representatives of
'he legal profession by ordering the
Sado Muru to continue her voyage i
Yokohama without touching at the
outer docks.
Immigration men and agents boarded the Sado Maru by means of a
launch and after the situation had
been explained to the captain, the
liner was turned around and headed
for the straits. The scene on the docks
was enhanced by a large number of |
local Hindus who were ready to back
the claims of their fellow countrymen
aboard the outbound liner. Considerable excitement prevailed when it was
discovered that the steamer would
not take her berth. Apparently the
Hindus were composed of two factions, and for a time matters took a
serious turn. As the outcome of the

Keffer,  M.  B., left    Priniceton    last
Monday for Grand    Forks    on    legal
business for    the    British    Columbia
Copper company. J. W. Tremlett. late
of Bisbee, Ariz., is resident chief engineer at Princess camp    on   Copper
mountain for the    British    Columbia
Copper company.    The extensive copper deposits proved up by    diamond
drills   on Copper   mountain   by the
British    Columbia    Copper    company
will be all concentrated  in the    district.    Water power for this purpose
is now being applied for by the British Columbia Copper company   from
the waters and falls of the Roche and
Pasayton   rivers,    which    form    the
South      Similkameen      river.       The
quantity  of  water applied  for  is  lTri
cubic feet per second and the quantity
of water to be stored is approximately
500 cubic feet.
It is the intention of the company-
to ship its concentrates to the Greenwood smelter as the concentrates will
make splendid fluxes for the company's Boundary ores and the copper
mountain ores are too silicious to-
smelt by themselves. However, then-
are a number of self-fluxing cupriferous ores in the Similkameen which
will in the near future warrant the

Victoria, April 23.���After allowing
the suggested changes to hang fire
for some time in order that if there
were any objections thereto the. owners objecting to the changes might
register their complaints, alterations
in the names of certain streets have
been authorized by the city council.
In future new names will be official.
The changes authorized have been
made because hitherto there have
been a number of streets bearing similar designations. The confusion
which baa been occasioned thereby
has necessitated the renaming of some
of them. The changes are given below :
James street, Victoria west, to be

Regent  street to  be  Opal  street.
Park road  to  be Ollphant street.

Clover lane to be Crocus lane.
Gross road to be Heaven road.
Garland avenue to be Westall
Falrfleld Terrace to be Vranklin
Hulton street, north of Fort street
to be l^ee avenue.
Hulton street to be Redfeni street.
