Montreal, June 9.--There waa no
dcveiupineut. today in tbe Empress
of Ireland matter It Is a case of
simply waiting until the investigation can be begun next week on the
arrival of Lord Mersey in Canada,
and in the meantime the discussion

for the sinking of the Kmpress. If
either, has settled down.
Even the two captain, themselves,
who were so much In the public eye
a f-'w days ago, are seldom mentioned now. So-called experts are
bobbing up occasionally with views
as to how the Empress could be raised, but no action has as yet been
taken to lilt the sunken ship.
Captain Walsh of the Canadian Pacific company, Is devoting his attention lo recovering aa many bodies as
possible  from the  vessel.
"This is our tlrst work now," he
said today. "We must recover them
If at all possible."

recognition to a new provisional president if named according to the plan
advanced by the Mexican delegates, It
was learned tonight. Tbe method is
thai Oeneral Huerta would appoint as
minister of foreign affairs the man
��ho Is agreed upon here to head the
new  government.
The Washington ac'mini, tra tion contends that if General Huerta is permitted to name the foreign minister
win. by constitutional succession will
be elevated to the presidency, even
though the selection Is made here,
such an act would be construed as recognition of the Huerta government.
On this Issue the mediation plenipotentiaries came to B disagreement today at a conference held for consideration of the exact method by which
the new provisional government of
Mexico would  be created.
Mediators  Strike   Snag.
For more than two hours the media
ters and American delegates argued
in vain and it was apparent when the
conference ended that what hitherto
hud been considered a subject of detail had suddenly developed a snag.
Although the three South American
diplomats argued strongly from the
Mexican viewpoint, there waB good
reason  to  believe  tonight    that    the !

In four of the seven cases set down
for hearing, the Great Northern will
be required to *how cause why orders
should not be issued allowing action
on the complaints. In one the Great
Northern is seeking to close certain
roads ln the vicinity of Sapperton,
while the other two are against the
B. C. E. R. und C. P. R., one of alleged over-crowding of cars on the Burnaby ake line and the other, the petition of the Ladles' club of Whonnock
for _ station agent.
Chief among* tlie cases is the application of Burnaby, New Westminster,
Port Moody and Coquitlam, asking for
a level crossing over the G. N. R.
tracks on the North road in order to
permit the installation of tracks for
the extension of the Sapperton car
line. Opposition is expected from the
Great Northern railway to this move
as this this would tie up the company's operations leading to the construction of f: eight yards near Sapperton. Should this opposition appear

\\ estmlnster,
After a clear and instructive ltd-
drt.h by City Engineer Biack.i._,i,
searching questions from the ratepayers and equally convincing answers
on the Sapperton No. 2 sewerage
scheme, a keen and Interesting discussion ended In the appointment of
five ratepayers to meet the board of
works and endeavor to reduce the cost
of the undertaking.
There was no whisper against a
sewerage scheme for Sapperton but
a decided disinclination to admit that
tbe present scheme was tbe most economical one ln  the circumstances.
Before meeting the board of works
the committee will thresh out the
question among themselves and concentrate upon some modification of the
scheme whereby some material saving
may be effected. The result will be
submitted to the board of works and,
if necessary, the services Of an inde-!
pendent engineer of experience will
be called In to advise. The committee will meet with Mr. Lewis, manager
of the Brunette Sawmills and learn
the attitude of his company on the
subject of the easement through the
mill property.
President Munro occupied the chair
nnd there was a good and representative gathering.
Mr. Blackman, the city engineer,
opened with a brief sketch of the
scheme from its Initiation and showed
the advantages and ultimate economy
of the combined sanitary and storm
sewers. He said that in his opinion
the outfall through the Brunette mills
was the only practical one and less
expensive   than   two  or  three  others

Naval Policy Endorsed.
Hon. L. P. I'elleiter said that the
proposed naval reserve was quite in
keeping with the government's naval
proposals of last year and that the
arguments of the liberals were ridiculous. He said that the naval policy
of tho government had been "idors-
ed by the electors of Chateauguay
in the bye-election.
The debate continued until after
midnight when the million dollars
was voted and other items were taken
It is possible tbat after all prorogation may not take place this
week. Both parties still hope that
a compromise regarding redistribution will be effected and that the bill
will be introduced this session. The
feeling is that, after spending so
much time upon the question and having settled every constltutiency ex-
c; t two. namely Russell and Richmond, it s a pity to have all their
ef.orts go for naught. But even If the
redistribution bill is not introduced
this session, prorogation is not o.v

London. June 9.���Police raids on the
suffragette headquarters today resulted In the discovery that s*feral of the
royal family, including the Prince of
Wales, have been regular contributors
to the militant funds, while the queen
tried to contribute but her offer was
refused. These contributions do not
mean that royalty favors the militants. On the contrary, lt really
amounts to paying blackmail for immunity for the persons and property
of the royal family from militant attacks.
When the raids were made and the
lists of subscribers found, the government hastily announced that it would
immediately  begin  criminal  prosecutions on the charge of supporting a
criminal organization but the minute
examination disclosed among the subscribers several royal names, including the Duchess of Teck, the Duchess
of Fife and still still further investigation showed that immunity payments
had heen made in the name of the
Prince of Wales.   He had so frequently argued with hie parents ln favor of
the suffragettes that there was uncertainty as to what category his contribution came under.
Queen's Offer Refuted.
It was also learned that the queen
offered a subscription of $5000 if the
militants would agree to stop annoying
their majesties but this subscription
was refused, the militants being unwilling to lose their most valuable advantageous medium. Among others in
the list are the Duchess of Portland
and Westminster and many Americans
including the Duchess of Marlborough,
the Countess of Essex an_ Lady Cunard.
American hostesses in Ixmdon have
been  let conspicuously alone by the
militants.    Detective  agencies   which
since the season  began have had  female detectives at every society function   to  guard   against   militant   out-
ramm.  told  thm police  that  they  were
never called  by  American  hostesses.
When the royal names  were found
on   the   list   the   government   had   to
give up the idea of prosecuting subscribers,  but  is  now  considering  the
prosecution of the militants for black
mail.    The royal and noble subscribers,  however,  seeni   unwilling  to  become complainants and without their
aid nothing can be done.
Of course many subscribers are
strong supporters of militancy but
they are also safe as the government
cannot prosecute them and refrain
from prosecuting the others. So the
militants seem to have scored on the
government once again.

Toronto, June 9.���Caught under an
avalanche of sand while playing wilh
a number of companions near his
home, Johnny Urown, aged 6, 18 Haden
street, was smothered to death. Two
chums, lads of his own age, Charlie
Chufky, 14 Baden street, and Wesley
Richmond, 16 Haden street, were fortunate in escaping the fate which befell  their  playmate.
The accident happened behind
James (.low's sheet metal works at
Osslngton avenue und Arthur street.
This Ib the third fatal accident which
has occurred within ten days in this
I vicinity. A street cat conductor waa
all j killed in a fall from a running board,
and a boy, in a street car collision.
Yesterday afternoon a number of
young lads started to dig a cave behind some sign boards fronting on
Arthur street. They finished their
work shortly before 6 o'clock, and returned after their supper to play in
It. Chufky Richmond and the unfortunate Brown boy crawled through a
narrow tunnel Into the cave. While
in the cave the combined weight of
a number of companions racing about
over their heads caused the cuve-in,
burying the three mentioned under
tons of sand. Young Brown was completely burled, tho light sand filling
his lungs. Men lu the neighborhood
promptly answered the cries of the
shouting children. Within a short
time all had been taken from the pit.
Constable Udell worked over young
Brown with n pulmotor until the arrival of Dr. -Clark, Shaw and Halton
streets. The boy was taken to the
Western hospital, dying an hour after his admission. Neither Chufky or
Richmond  were se.rlouesly  Injured.
The body was sent to the morgue,
where an inquest will be held.

Many advertisers lose sight of the fact that it is
often wise to pay for special positions in a newspaper in order to conpel the reader's attention. This,
of course, only applies to certain propositions, but it
plays a very important part in the production of results.
���. .���
Many newspapers charge from 15 to 25 per cent,
extra for special positions, but the results mostly
justify it, where the advertising does not deal with
articles of daily or weekly consumption.
The grocer who is offering his weekly "specials"
as well as discussing his general line of goods, the
economy of dealing at his store, etc., would be un-
wies to use special positions. He invariably uses a
very large space and the housewife knows that on
certain days in the week she will see his special offerings in the particular newspaper that comes to
her home. If she is interested in grocery bargains,
she never fails to look through the newspaper for
them on the days that she knows they will be advertised, f
The grocer, therefore, can spend his appropriation to much better advantage by using larger space
at "run-of-paper" rates.
Take a wine merchant, however, who once or
twice a year secures a small, choice parcel of imported vintages and instead of locking up his capital,
desires to dispose of these goods at a nominal profit,
it is particularly important that he should use special
or preferred positions. Women, as a rule, do not
buy wines for the home, and men do not look as carefully through the advertising pages as women do. It
is, therefore, essential to place this kind of advertising in a special position where it cannot fail to catch
the eye of the prospect.. Similarly, sporting goods
advertisements will amply justify the extra cost of
appearing on the display page of a newspaper.
A well-known baker and confectioner in Montreal claims that a two-inch advertisement on the
front page of a leading evening paper brings him
better returns than four inches double column had
obtained in other positions. The reason for this is
that, although his is not special advertising, he has
to make special efforts to catch the attention of
ladies who invariably have somewhat set ideas upon
the matter of bread and confectionery.
Don't reduce the size of your advertising for the
sake of using preferred position unless you can tell
the story of your product completely in the space
you decide to use. If your goods are such that they
are in constant demand either by the housewife or
her husband, special positions are not essential, although where a competitor is using them it is as well
to run an occasional card in special positions, drawing attention to your regular advertising on Tuesdays or Friday, or on such dates as you find it expedient to advertise in ordinary positions.
Reversed plates���white type on a black background���are helpful in catching the eye, but should
be used only where the amount of copy involves only
such a number of words as can be printed in big, bold
type, and also where the plates can be used again
and again at various intervals, on account of the extra cost of electrics.      , ' >    ���' PAGE FOUR

ever existed.    To the claim  for flis
t'ley   offered   a   sum   of   $00.54,   and
lodged  it  with the registrar of court
Mr. Tidy giving evidence In support
of  his   claim,   which   he   based   on   a
verbal   conversation   between   himself
and Messrs. Hart, Eastman, Agar and

he was to get |50 a month and  more
if the theatre paid.    It was not to be
expected   he   said,  that   he   would   do
two men's  work  for nothing.
The defendants, on the other hand,
replied that the bargain struck was a
speculative   one   and   that   It   was   arranged  that  Mr.  Tidy  should  get  $7)0
,a month out of net  profits, and  only
on the understanding that there was

Toronto, June 'a. Have you ever noticed in sports how the crowd demands all idol? No matter how perfect the system or team play it is up
on tin- individual player that discussion centres. For instance a lacrosse
team comprises 17' players. Kach one
is a necessary unit of the team's effectiveness and each player knows
bow necessary it is to have the other
11 wo: king ill harmony with him
That is  what makes a  winning team.
But the crow,), the spectators, see
il otherwise. They must have their
favorite. Some one whose style stands
out ni.in- prominently or showily than
lhe others seizes their fancy and
makes a hit. Such players could not
shine if the balance of the team were
not playing in unison with him hut
tha hero worshippers heed not this.
The feature of the game is not the
team, hut tin- player. Aud as in la-
crose so in football, baseball or any
other field sports where the same fic-
tors of speed, quick thinking and cooperation are required.
Con Jones, that eventful student of
human nature on the coast, redogtllz-
ed this habit of crowds and catered to
it. Newsy 1.alcaide was the man chosen. Newsy was made lhe king pin of
i very play and his play which was naturally conspicuous was Individually
accentuated until the name of the Vancouver lacrosse club became synonymous with that of Lalonde. And con
did not read the crowd wrong as the
gates on the coast that year attested.
Cliff Spring.
Tho recent Instance of the same
trait en the part of crowds is In the
case of Spring, the Westminster recruit to Torontos. Spring by Iiis
stick handling and signal ability at
once caugh' the public fancy. Immediately he monopolized the lacrosse
conversation. He was compared with
Lalonde, Warwick and other stars of
the first magnitude and some opined
even that he was greater than Billy
Fitzgerald, the peerless. Be that as il
may tin- fact remains that the crowd
likes to go to see star players perforin
and it is hy the individual calibre of
the pi'vers that the status of the
league is judged.
A thoughtful man who was a great
follower of sports once said that the
field of sport was a miniature of tbe
Held of life. Said lie: "As a man
ticoulta hlmsel In competition on the
field so he reveals himself later in
his trials in the arena of life.'' And
come t i think of it there is a great
deal of I r.ith in what he says. And
following out our former topic (if the
preference of crowds for the Individual
th.-re is Ihis similarity between sports
and the history of nal Ions, that where
our knowledge of history is strung
upon the outstanding figures who
moved in the events of their time, such
as Wellington, Napoleon, Frontenac,
rather than the events themselves, so
Cameron's Asthma Cure
is the only remedy ever discovered that is a constitutional cure
for  asthma.
This wonderful remedy has a
certain specific action on the

action renders it iflipossible for

Its curative action begins at
once and the cure is steady and
rapid until thoroughly completed.

D.  A. Cameron    4.    Co.,  Whito
Front Drug Store, Owen Sound,
in our recollection of sports strung
upon the Individuals, such as Hanlan,
Casey, Baldwin, Hans Wagner, Hinny
lioobin. et al. rather than upon any
particular game. The name of the in-
dividual recalls the event, not the
event the individual. In short, the
generalization to be drawn from sport
is Identical with those to be drawn
from history, which probably is one
reason why sports are so popular.
Another remarkable foible of retired
or semi-retired athletes is that to
them no subsequent generation ever
contains such contests of such prodigies of valot as their own. They like
to sit back and smoke and tell of the
men of their day and impress upon
you the inferiority of the present daj
sports. Ami the young fellows like to
humor them by listening with patlenae
and seeming acquiescence perhaps because some day they themselves will
expect to be so listened to, At all
events respect is due to all such veterans because you may be sure that to
leave such a lasting Impression their
shirts were real and vivid to them,
even if the feats they defend have
been eclipsed by subsequent records.

of  16,000  people,  including the  Duke

Negro Champ Is Still in Wrong with

Chicago. June 9,���The I'nited States
circuit court of appeals today affirmed a previous drei.'-ion reversing portions of a decision of the lower court
which convicted Jack Johnson, tha
negro prise fighter of violating the-
Mann white slave act. It was also or-
dered that Johnson  be re-sentenced.
The negro originally was fined $1000
and sentenced ,to a year and a day in
the penitentiary. He fled the country
and i.i now in France. In the petition
for a re-hearing the district attorney
argued that the lower court should
have been sustained in every Instance.

Saturday's game Will Teet Feeling cf
Island  Fans Towards the Sport
���Joe Gorman Anxious.
Viclori 1. June 9. Should Victoria by
Its patronage at next Saturday's lacrosse match between Vancouver and
Westminster in this city prove that
it wants the change, the famous Salmon Bellies will transfer their franchise to the capital and will play as a
Victoria club In the future.
This interesting information was
handed out at Vancouver on Saturday
night after the Westminster-Vancouver
game. The game was witnessed hy a
scant 300 enthusiasts at New Westminster and the players have about decided to throw up the sponge unless
Victoria is willing to support professional lacrosse.   Secretary Scragg of
1 the Vancouver club will he here this
I week   to  look   into  lhe   situation  and
the transfer of the Westminster tran-
I chlse  to  lhe capital  is  looked  for.
Not--only   did   Mr.   (lilchrist   of  the
Westminster club state that the players  were  ready and   willing  to  come
to Victoria, but he added, that the formation   of   a   Victoria    lacrosse   club
means   that   the   Minto   cup   will   be
brought   here   ami   that   Westminster
will  be eliminated  from  the professional lacrosse circles.
The f,;ilure of the B. C. L. A. last
year and the subsequent jumping to
the Big Four of such players as Cliff
Spring, Johnny Howard and Len
Turnbull, turned the Koyal City fans
against their club. Westminster today fields a team that could beat any
aggregation in the Dominion. The
town is a veritable lacrosse nursery
hut it cannot turn out the crowds to
support   professional  lacrosse.
Sumas will be the visitors at Queens 1
park on Saturday, June 20, when they j
clash  with the New Westminster all-
stars.   On the following day the Wash
Ington nine will meet tlie Circle F at i
Fraser  Mills.    This  will  be  the  first;
visit of  an  American  nine  this  summer and  with  Hurley  in  the  hox  for
the visitors, the fans can expect some j
classy ball.
C. C. Carroll, a newspaper man  of j
Winnipeg and  Saskatoon.,  who  pitched  a  New   Westminster team  to  vie- j
lory over tiie Bellingham Elks at the
fair two years ago,  was a  visitor in !
the  city  yesterday.
Steele of the Columbus, is the most
polished   first  sacker  playing in  the j
city league.    Up to last night he had]
been  seen  back  of  the  plate  playing
out of his position.    They way he ac- j
cepted   all   chances   andi   hinged   out
the  first hit off Horn in the seventh
just appealed to the fans.
A meeting of the city baseball league
will   be  held   In   Hyall's  office   at  8
The-old   Minto cup is beginning to
squirm on its base at the thought of
being   transferred   to   Victoria.     Anyway professional lacrosse cannot make
Victoria any worse as a sporting town
than   what   it   now   is.     The  baseball
Club is in the cellar position, the hoc-'
key  seven   got  a   beautiful   trimming
from  the Torontos.  Hal Beasley    has
quit the cinder path for this season at1
leaBt, the yacht club failed to enter 1
a challenger for the Lipton cup races i
at.   Seattle,   the   boxing  club  recently
dosed its door.    No; we don't think of
any more details. ,
Fraser Mills will invade Sumus,'
Wash., in gocdly numbers next Sunday when the Circle F team clashes
with the Washington nine. Special
cars are being chartered for the trip,
leaving the Columbia street depot
around noon.
Willie Ritchie slipped one over the
London promoters when he set the
date with Freddie Welsh for July 4. lt
would be the bitterest gall to hear of
Willie defeating Welsh on such a memorable day.

New Westminster, June 8th, 1!H4.
It   has   been   said  again   and   again I
that the  basic problem  In   Mexico is \
the land problem.    Under the present
System  a  few  men own  most  of the
land,  and  have  been  able  to  reduce,
the  majority  of the agricultural  and
pastoral population to a condition ap-;
proaching   servitude.     Whether    this
system is responsible for tlie bandit.--
of the country is a matter for discus-1
sion.    Certain   it   is  that  tho   bandit j
problem  is also one of tho  mo't im-,
portant and perplexing In the country.
Mexico Is overrun with bandits, some j
of them, like Villa, becoming powerful
revolutionists; the others merely rob-!
ben and plunderers.    Since their vie-
tlms are almost invariably the ranch-!
ers, it is likely that if the solution cf j
tho land problem'does away with the
powerful   ranchers  it  will  also  solve
the bandit problem by destroying the
bandits' prey.   Or it may have the ef-
test of making the bandits look fori
other victims.    Instead of raiding one i
great  ranch   and   torturing   the  own-1
er, they will raid a dozen prosperous
farm houses and torture  the owners.!
Made  Bandits By  Poverty.
There  can   be  no doubt   that    the
land system which tends to make one j
man very rich and one thousand men !
very  poor is responsible  for most of
the  Mexican  bandits.    Nearly  all of
them are former peons, the hardship!
of whose lot drove them Into brigandage.    From    peaceful   industry   they
had  nothing  to hope, and  when one
of them  happened to be bolder than
tho rest he would frequently  steal a
horse and rifle and become a bandit,!
arguing  that to be "killed  in   a  fight
was not, after all, much more terrible
than the fate that lay before him as
a laborer.    Then there was the cheering prospect that   he    might    not be;
killed, that    he    might    become    the
leader  of  a  band,    have    as    many
horses as lie wanted,    money in  his'
pocket to gratify his barbarous tastes,;
and   the   respect   of   the   community.;
It is not surprising that in these circumstances there are so many bandits
In   Mexico.     As   loir;   as   anyone   rein embers    there    have    been    bandits
there.    The     nature    of    the  country
encourage,    them.     The    mountains
are an  ideal  fastness.    In   the    north I
the long American bonier marked  by'
the shalolw  Rio Grande    is   another
inducement Bandits can drive
i*"rd of stolen horses or cattle across
the border and dispose of them, They
can stay on tbe American side and
plan their campaigns. Mexico was
made for bandits.
Diaz and the Bandits.
Nevertheless, In the days of Diaz
the bandits were by no means so
powerful as they have been since.
Tho old president formed the rura'.es.
or mounted police, for the purpose of
exterminating the bandits, and had the
wisdom to enroll most of the ex-liau-
dits whom he could find in this force.
He paid them to hunt down the other
bandits, and was not too particular In
holding    his    rurales strictly to    the
letter   of   the   law   in   their   dealings
with their former comrades. If a bandit was caught and    happened to be
shot  in  an   attempt   to  escape   Diaz
i'id   not  ask  embarrassing   questions.
He calculated thai there was one bandit the fewer in the world.    The rurales   had   quite  as  much   sport  and I
excitement    hunting    bandits  us  did
ih"  outlaws   in   the   pursuit   of  their i
crimes, and  since    they    were    paid ]
regularly, it was not difficult to main-1
tain an efficient force.
Bandit* as  Revolutionist*.
Diaz' method of ensuring the safe-1
ty of any travelers In  whom he took
an interest was simple and direct.    If I
a traveler    was    passing   through    a j
bandit-infested   district   Diaz   would j
give him a letter to the governor of
the district, In which he said that be
would  bold  the governor responsible
for   the   safety   of   the   traveler.     In
turn,    tho    governor would  pass the
word   to  his  subordinates,  and  there
Is  no  record  of a man  thus  reconi- i
mended   ever   being   shot  or   robbed.
no  matter  how  many  bandits  mights
be   in   the.  region.     Probably   if   Diaz!
had remained in power until the pros-:
ent limo   he    might    have ended the
bandit menace in Mexico.    Under Ma-;
dero   it  became  a   veritable  ."rourge.
Most of the leaders in the Madero rev-1
olution   were  bandits   or   ex-bandits, j
Villa, for instance, was one.    Another
noted desperado who fought under Madero  waR  Maxmimo    Castillo.    After
Madero's election as president he de-;
manded an office, but as there were
more  bandits than officers    his    do-1
mand was ignored.   Then he becam. I
a candit again.
The Worst of Bandits.
1'ascual   Orozco   was   another.     He'
fought  ior  Madero, or rather was  In
the  field against Diaz before  Madero
declared himself,     But after the  sue- '
cess   of  the   Madero   insurrection   he
Continued  to  rob and   murder  people, j
He is still robbing and murdering, his
preferred victims being the followers
of   Villa.     Zapata   is  another.     He   is
the most devilish of all  Mexican bandits, and appears to murder for the
sport   of   the   thing.     He   is   against
Huerta today, but he would be against'
Carranza   tomorrow   If  he   were   president.     Zapata   is   a   horn   bandit,   in
perpetual  revolt against all authority,
villa is in full control of Chihuahua,
; but In that state are at least two well-
organized  gangs  of  bandits   who  rob
and murder in defiance of Villa. Sala-
j r.ar, now a prisoner in    the    United
[states, is a combination of soldier and
| bandit.    He was with Madero and later with Huerta.    Should Carranza sue-
ceod in displacing Huerta he will find
the bandit problem awaiting him, and
I there can he little doubt that hundreds
| Of men  now fighting under iiis standard will turn upon him when they find
that there are not euough offices in
Mi xico to go round.

Berlin,  .Monday, June 0,    Following
tii" automobile accident in which Tlie-'
odor Dreber, the well-known German
sportsman, met his death, some amazing accounts of the spendthtft habits;
of this son of a millionaire have come j
to  light.
Two  years  ago  he  lived   at   lirioni I
during the winter months and one day!
feeling   very   dull,   he   sent   out   tele-'
grams   to   twelve   of   his    best    men'
friends and  to twelve women  friends, '���
asking them urgently to come down to
Brloni to have supper with him.   Some'
of these friends lived at that time at
Vienna, others In Hungary and others!
even in the Riviera, while among the
women eight were at Vienna and four|
at  I'aris.
In   order   that,  their  journey   might]
be as  comfortable as  possible, each I
of them had a special train placed ati
his disposal, and in order that  every
one of them might preserve a pleasant
memory of the occasion, each of the
male guests received a souvenir in
th" form of a golden cigarette ease,
and each lady a gold handbag '���> ii', the
date nf the supper set out In diamonds
The  affair  cost   (200,000.
On the death nt his ;'aii:i r he Inherited $20,000,000. More than half
of this baa evaporated during the last
three  years.

Agassiz, B.C., June 9. That the silo
may become a common sight in the
Fraser valley, where ii is conspicuous
now only by its absence, is a possibility following experiments with
corn at the Dominion experimental
farm here. For many years, owing to
the cool nights and only medium
warm days, dairy farmers have not
considered corn a practicable crop in
the Fraser valley. This state ol affairs ha3 retarded hog-raising, and
has induced dairymen to depend on
mangels and turnips for succulent
feed during the Wlntl r months. Considerable astonishment was caused,
consequently, when Superintendent P,
H. Moore, of the experimental farm,
announced last fall that he had grown
corn and placed il In the silo at a
total cost of only $2.7:1 a toil,
In 1913 the corn was grown on a
piece of land from which, since 1910,
Orchards had been removed from time
to time. A part of tbe area was badly Infested witli couch grass, and
other portions Buffered somewhat
from shading, dee to its local ion between mountains m tho north and a
section ol Douglas tir trees on tho
- all.. The total yield, of silage corn
was 2K-1 tons, Win pi.end ;. The varl'-
iie., grown were Compton'a Early and
Lcugfellow. the two sorts which Mr.
Moore recommends as the beei tor

Summer Advertising
The most valuable asset in advertising is age. It is some-
thing which cannot be rushed or bunched. It has no
overnight competition. The new advertiser can't date
Advertising cannot take a vacation without a loss.
The cumulated values of previous months or years immediately begin to shrink or evaporate. It will invariably
cost more to make good the shrinkage than to omit the
Good advertising is a continuous performance before
the same audience. No better definition was ever invented.   It admits of no exceptions or variations.
Buyers are not so firmly attached to buying traditions during the Summer months as at other seasons.
They go about more, enjoy more freedom, are interested more in variety. The new advertiser finds it
easier to break in; the old advertiser finds it necessary
to be more persistent and watchful. The province of
advertising is to attract new customers, as well as to
hold old ones, and the vacation season, more than any
other, is the season of changes; the season, more than
any other, when the advertiser can least afford to
permit his goods and his service to be forgotten. The
trifling purchase of July or August is often the forerunner of a much larger purchase in October or

The big new Bteamers are giving a
good deal of trouble. Tbey arc difficult to handle, and each one has gone
through a number of troubles shortly
after leaving its makers' hands, 'I'he
Olympic, when she was launched, had
one trouble after another, culminating
in the destruction of the n. val cruiser
Hawk, which she ran Into in tin:

the shipbuilding yards to the docks,

after making a cruise or two across,
had to be put In dock again, and her
internal arrangements reconstructed.
The late-st leviathan, the Vaterland,
got off to a smooth start, but ran Into
irouble in the harbor of New Vork.
There are. as yet, but four of these
great ships, the Aqultania, of the Cunard line; the Olympic, of the White
Star line; the Imperator. and the Vat-
erland, of the Hamburg-American. Our

thousand tons had become the standard of first class size. In 1905, tlie

Okanagan   Association   Put.   Changer,
in Force���Ultimatum To Be Enforced in Weights.
Vernon, p. ���'.. June 9, Following
a protracted uniting ol the managers er the nine local Unit unions
with the executive of the Okanagan
I'nited Growers, tin big central selling agency which disposes of the produce of tbe members of tbe local unions, important changes in the pack-
in;; rules, regulations of grade and
standard, and 111 the pooling regulations haw been announced by ll.
Robertson, manager of the central.
Tlie changes w< re all concurred in
by the different managers of the locals, and were later formally adopted
by the directors of the contra!. The
changes in 'he pooling operations and
regulations will undoubtedly result in
the growers betting their money more
ipilcklv  than   last   year.
Au important set of rulings adopted
this year for the first time are those
setting minimum gross weights fnr
all standard packages of fruit and
produce. These new rules are designed to give protection to the buyers nnd consumers of Okanagan valley produce by assuring them of a certain weight to a certain package.
No Standard Weight.
I'or instance, In the past a crate
of strawberries graded No. 1 had no
standard weight. The pack from one
ranch might nn, 7,2 pounds, and Uial
from another 28, or even as low as
26. Here,liter a crate of No. 1 strawberries, parked in 4-41 li baskets must
have a minimum gross weighl of 30
pounds. If the gross weight is less
than :,il pounds, the crate will either
have  10  be  filled  up to the  standard
I weigh;,   or   it   will   be   graded   No.   2.
���The minimum gross weight of a box
j of No, 1 apples has bei 11 set at 40
1 pounds, nnd minimum standards have
I be ui established for all standard
| packages of all fruits shipped from
: the valley,
a  detailed  statement   of the  new
Standards   and   regulations   is     being
printed in booklet  form, and will be
distributed   to  each   of   the   members
1 of tii'   nine local organizations,
Anoi.u r new  feature of prime importance  is the adoption  of a  list  of
standard varieties of fruits Lhat will
I in   packed  aocording ,to  variety, and
I graded  No,  1   and  7.
I.a,-,'   season,   for     Instance,     more
1 than  140 varieties of apples were han-
; (lied    by   the   central,      Separle   pools
I had  lo be established  for each  varle-
I ty.     wlhch     entailed     an       immense
j amount   of   bookkeeping  and  a  large
operating expense. This year a "main
crop''   list  has  been  established   not
only   for  apples,     bin     lot     peaches.
prunes,  plums, etc.   which  will greatly lessen the labor and cost of operation, and make possible more prompt
returns to the growers.
I     The apple list contains 43 varieties,
i divided   into   three   classes,   summer,
early   fall  and  fall  and   winter  v*rie-
i tics.    Tiie one hundred odd other varieties   will not   bave  separate  pools.
! nor will tbey be graded No. 1 anil No.
2, but  will  be bandied in an orchard
run pack and graded No, 2 special.
