Montreal. June 1.���Jack Saxe, the
young Norweglau, holding the post of
third officer on tbe Storstad, was on
the bridge of the latter boat with
Captain Anderson, when the Empress
was rammed.
"We were coming up tbe river
when we saw the Empress about a
mile off," he said. "Before we had
come within a half a mile of her a
heavy fog began to fall and we could
see neither the boat ahead or the laud
on either side of us.
"Suddenly tbe Empress loomed out
over, about 25 cases being referred
to the assessor who will report on the

Toronto, une 1. Contrary to what
might be expected, tiie collier Storstad. with her ten thousand tons of
coal under hatches, had the right of
way over tlie Kmpress with 1800 souls
on board. This is, of course, if the
statement of the Storstad people is established.
The Storstad statement is: "The
vessels sighted each other when far

seen off the port bow of the Storstad.
The Kmpress of Ireland's green, or
starboard light was visible to those
on  the Storstad."
Under the circumstances the rules

right of way. This contention is correct. Marine law, revised statutes of

the St.'Lawrence is a swiftly flowing
river and the Empress Of Ireland sank
more than four miles from the nearest
point  of land.
From the meagre particulars of Mr.
Davidson's escape received hy his
brother here, his experiences may be
pictured. The boat sinking with its
hundreds of passengers pitched into
the water all struggling for life, the
frantic attempt to seize the boats or
secure a piece of wreckage on which
to float to safety, can be imagined.
Mr. Davidson, in despair of being
picked up and seeing the boats all
packed with their human freight,
struck out for the shore and got too
far away for the searching tugs in the
darkness to be succored. He was a
strong swimmer and had managed to
obtain a life belt.
Wai. Famed  Athlete.
Only a man in tlie pink of condition
could have withstood the strain, of
such a long swim. Mr. Davidson had
been captain of the soccer team at
California University and his athletic
training stood him in good stead on
his long swim for life.
Cordon Davidson has been at the
University of California lor the past
few yea;s as a post graduate instruc-

L. A. Lewis, manager of tlie Brunette Mill company, wrote in regard
to the proposed easement for the
Sapperton sewer through his company's property.    Mr
could not hear anything but the grinding. We backed off then when the
Kmpress swung us around to port.
We did not think that J,he ship was
badly damaged but we did think we
were sinking ourselves and got our
boats ready.
"Second Officer Relnertz had gone
out In charge of one of the lifeboats
and worked for three hours picking
up living persons and bodies from
the water.
"We were picking up the people
who crawled down the starboard side
of the keel and jumped into the water." he said.
"I saw that she was going to go
in a minute and knew tbat there ��a.-
danger of our boat being sucked down
but when the big liner went under
we managed to steady the lifeboat.
Her bow rose iu the air. she rolled
over on her side and slid under the
water like a fisb.
"It wag gone sooner than I thought
a boat could sink. And then we found
the water about us so full of swimmers that we had to hurry away with
our load."

Councllloi Bevan's pet bill, that to
relieve small traders from payment
of a license, semi-annually, was on
the point of passing the house when
Councillor FauVel enquired just what
it meant. Finding that the financial
returns to the municipality would be
endangered and with thoughts perhaps
of the Broadview demands, the councillor from ward four moved a two
weeks' hoist. Councillor Bevan accused his confrere of flopping but the
two weeks sign  was hoisted.
The pathetic feature of the -session came before adjournment when
Councillor FauVel referred to the loss
that Burnaby had sustained In the
sinking of the Kmpress of Ireland. He
referred to W. 11. Griffin, former collector of Burnaby, whose wife and
baby had gone down with the ill-fated
liner, and to the other families who
are herein ed. A standing vote of condolence was passed.

! Reichstag   Told      Peace   Principle   Is
Embodied in Several of Country's
Commercial Treaties.
Berlin, Qernmny, June l���Speaking
| in the budget committee of the Reichstag recently, tiehelmrat Dr. Kreiger
stated that the idea that (iermany was
opposed to the idea of arbitration was
an absolutely false one.
In 1901, he said, Uerinany had already reached an agreement with Eng.-
laiitl, concerning arbitration. A similar agreement had been drawn up
witli the United States, but this had
failed owing to the opposition of the
in quite a number of new commercial treaties, he said, there are arbitration clauses, especlaly In connection with all questions of tarirf. At the
second peace conference at The Hague
j tiie proposal to Institute an Interna-
I tlonal prize court had emanated from
I Germany.
1     Especially,    however,     in    treat' in
j with [Trance for the settlement ol tbs
Morocco question, Germany bad subscribed  to an arbitration clause. The
[agreements drawn up at The Hague
concerning   the    international     prize
I court  and  the declaration  of   London
Wen  sinned by all the powers, including Germany, which country was also
willing to ratify the two treaties.
The difficulties about both agreements, came, Dr. KriPRcr said, from
Kni.laud, but. not, it must he added,
from the Hrltish government or the
house ol commons, but from the bouse
of lorus. The German government
was iookinn forward with much Interest to the third peace conference
at Tin Hague, but at the same time
the government was of tbe opinion
that the two treaties referred to
s'lOUld be ratified first.
It would, he said, be a rather Utopian idea to start the discussion of
new International problems before
those  already  debated   had  been   set
tled. The foreign office is already ut
wiTrk""elaboratin-; a program for the
Herman proposals which are to be laid
before the coming peace conference.

Sunday's News-Advertiser comes
out with a defence of the Vancouver
amateur union officials and puts In
a claim of biased reports alleging a
number of  Inaccuracies  In  the story
emanating from this city.
Manager McKinley lias uppealed to
the Canadian A.A.U. against the Vancouver ruling anil according to many
athletic enthusiasts in New Westminster,   his   action   Is   commended.     If
such u decision whereby Kendall can
secure   his   travelling   expenses   and
his hole! bill for playing lacrosse with
High River and still retain his standing as au amateur, stands, a far worse
mess will  be created among amateur
teams of the  whole  Dominion.    Tin'
I recent ruling, if allowed to stand, will !
I allow clubs to draft players, pay them
I expenses und allow them to live along
! ihe same    lines   as   a professional.
! Nothing  can   prevent  an   east em   la-
I crosse team  from approaching  New
I Westminster senior amateurs,    offering  them  positions, expenses and hotel  hills and do all  this right   under
, Lhe nose of the amateur union.
The contention of Manager McKin-
; ley and a local sport writer, will no
' doubt have some effect for the New
| West minster amateur officials are by
j no means satisfied with tbe ruling
and will bring It up at tne m-xt session of that  body.

Since Taking Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets"
Mrs. J. Mcrkhuger, Waterloo, Out.,
���enthusiastically recommends Na-Dru-Co J
Dyspepsia Tnhlets. Her experience with
them, as she outlines it, explains why.
"I   was  greatly   troubled   with  my
stomach", she writes.   "1 hail taken so
much medicine that I might say to take
any  more  would  only be making it
worse.    My stomach just felt raw.    I
read of Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets,
���and  a lady friend told mc they were
very easy to take, so 1 thought I would
Rive them a trial ami really they worked
wonders.       Anyone   having   anything
wrong with his stomach  should  give
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets a trial,
they will do the rest.    My stomach is
line now and I can eat any food."
One of the many good features of
NuDnt-Co Dyspepsia Tablets is thai
they are so pleasant and easy to take.
The relief tliey give from heartburn,
flatulence, biliousness and dyspepsia is
prompt and permanent. Try one alter
each meal���they'll make you feel like
a new person.

tiie great advantages for the city to

Alderman Kellington asked if th?
meter on the Westminster bridge had
been Installed, The question had ref-
e:ence to supplying water for road
sprinkling purposes to Surrey.
On being answered in the affirmative Alderman Kellington said that
Reeve Sullivan had Informed him that
It was not the Intention of Surrey to I
take the water. Surrey preferred
pumping it out of the ditch.
Alderman Bryson asserted that he
had been told by the reeve and Councillor Murphy to go ahead and the
meter was accordingly put in. lt was
Warhop I after they learned tlie coBt that they
I refused to take the water. He was
willing at first to give the water and
measure It in their cart, but when
Alderman Annandale proposed the
meter he voted for it. as it was the
proper way to conduct business. The
water superintendent had been suspicious that water was being taken
away from the pipe nnd had always Intended to ask permission to Install n
meter at the bridge to see how much
water passed through. They need not
charge the meter to Surrey and they
could  leave  It  there  for  six  months.

London, June 1.--Speaking at a
meeting of women members of the
Society for the Propagation of Oos-
pel at Church House recently, Bishop
Scott gave some interesting fact's in
regard to the changing position of
women in China.
There is no way, he said, in which
rapidly changing China claims the attention of the world more forcibly than
iu the present condition of its women.
Although everything is moving very
rapidly throughout the whole world
nowadays, events come to pass by no
means slowly in modern China, and
the girl of the day is very different,
not only to her prototype of past generations, but to her Immediate prede-
Cessor of only a year or two ago.
A girl of 15 or 16. the bishop continued, is found today giving lectures
on patriotic subjects, and such a feat
may be looked upon as a proof of the
serious attitude with which the Chi-
nese woman is beginning to regard
herself and her mission in life. In
the big towns many large girls' schools
and women's colleges exist. In connection with the Anglican communion
there Is an important high school for
girls, and one connected with an
American mission.
As regarding school work, a great
change had been noticeable in the
course of the last twelve years. After
the troubles of 1'eking in 1900, a large
number of orphans had been taken
care of at the mission schools.
The bishop then went on to describe
S recent ceremony of presenting diplomas to the girls of t'.iese schools at
which he was asked to preside, in the
playgtound a representation was given
of the "Pied Piper of llamelin.'' Although it was difficult lo follow the
English of the Chinese students, it was
interesting, he said, to watch the /est
with which they entered Into the feeling of the piece.

I address on "Canada, the I'nited States
and Great I ritam" was dellvjreJ by
i Rev. Byron II. Stauffer. nt Bond street
Congregation^ church last nlgut.
"History links us to Great Britain,

lada's post ion is unique. The whole
' world does not furnish a similar sltu-
| atlon," he said. First, it is the larg-
jest seii-goveining dependency In the

! Saxon dependency oi Great Britain;

Now  and  then,  he  said,  it   was  remarked,   hot',)   here  and   in   Kngland.
that Canada was becoming American-
lined    To the visiting American, how-
' ever, Canada was still a very Knglish
I place.   The newcomer from across the
line marvelled at our British manners
and customs.    Taking up the subject
of an article by  the Canadian correspondent.  Sir John  Willison,  of    the
London  Times,   in   which   the   writer
1 stated that the influence of the I'nit-
1 ed  States  was  gradually  superseding
British manners and customs in Canada. Mr  Stauffer recapitulated the ar-
��� guments used In favor of that conclu-
! sion.   "That all these conditions are
: true,   nobody   doubts."   he   said,   "but
that the;,  are dangerous to our Canadian nationality or to our British com
in ctlon,   nearly  everybody,  except    a
vi tv  few  of  that  writer's  school  of
thought,  will  doubt."
The Americanization Process.
It might well be doubted, he said,
wletlier anything could be done to
Drevenl our social and business Americanization, for these conditions were
a geographical necessity.
"Why worry about it at all?" he
'asked. "The same was true to a far
greater extent thirty years ago, when
We really were an adjunct to ,l'nit-
ed States, and when we used to im-
port almost everything. Now we are
beginning   tri   have   factories   in     this
country, and we are gradually becoming Independent of American
manufactures." Meanwhile. Mr. Stauffer said, you might notice over in
Buffalo or Detroit something of the
Canadlanizatlon of that part of the
United state.-. These cities were full
of Canadians. Many phases of Canadian life and business were In vogue
' there,
"But w!*at about imperialism?"    he
said.    "Will    these    newcomers ever
' become enthusiastic over British connection?    Perhaps  not.    But  a  more
vital question would be: "What could
'arise to cause them to actively Oppose
i the   Hritisa   connection?"   At   present
there is no such contingency on the
'horizon,  unless  it  be  the  forcing    of
, rovalty and a court upon  them;  and
i more   than   Americans   would   oppose
this,   I   fancy."    The   British   con nee-
j tion was no yoke of hardship, he con-
j tinned,    It  was not a chain of silver
upon   the  ankle,  but  a  golden  chain
about   the   neck  and   a   chain   to   be
proud of.
"Perhaps  the  day  will  come  when
we will no longer remain satisfied to
be merely an object of Great Britain's
protection,"   said   Mr.   Stauffer.   "The
j day must come when there will .-.it at
i Westminster     an    imperial    council,
with   representatives   -roam     Canada
i and Australia, from South  Africa and
; New Zealand, and when Canadian will
: begin to discuss on the huntings ques-
' tions which today are entirely settled
| in London.   This is what we will sunn
iask the mother country to do for us.
|nnd it will do far more to   strengthen
the   bond   ol   empire   than   the   mere
' sending   out   of   a.   representative     of
' royalty  to perform  the  formal duties
of a hollow office.    In fact, I am not
sure hut that royalty iu our gubernatorial  office  does  somi thing  to  help
the very situation which Sir John Willison   laments."

the amount of expenditure, aB the
power to meet it and its relation to
tbe national Income. I regard the budget of 1914, and the still greater expenditure anticipated lor lai&lti as
striking testimony to the great wealth
and income of the nation. Had tiie
proposal to spend so vast a sum been
made In 1880, not only would statesmen have stood aghast, but It would
have been quite impossible to raise
the money without taxing all luxuries
and all necessaries as well.

Chief    Criticism    That    Expenditures
Too Rapid���Carvell Claims Militia Teaches Young Men
To  Drink.
Ottawa. .Juno 1.���The estimates of
lhe militia department were under
considi ration throughout most of tbe
day in the commons, but hour after
hour passed without any items having
boe.n voted. Although the, discussion
has oceupied two full days, a day having been devoted to it about a fortnight ago, and but little progress hav.
ing been made, it is likely that when
the oppot.itIon does decide to let the
vote go through, they will be passed
with a rush.
The chief criticism of the opposition today was that the growth of the
��� iprndlture had been rapid, too rapid
under the  present    government    and
��� ho expenditures should be cut down.
Hugh Qutbrle and other opposition
members thought that if throe millions were lopped off and spent in
carrying out the recommendation of
thii royal commission on technical
education it would be better for the
Too Much Gold Lace.
Liberals also maintained that there
was too much gold lace, private ears
nnd automobiles in connection with
the administration of the department.
Colonel Hughes in reply asserted with
nharacterlstic force that the expenditure was justified and department was
really entitled to a larger share of
the revenues. He said that if one-
eighth or one-tenth were spent on the
militia the total annual outlay would
be 17 millions or thereabouts.
Referring to the report of the technical educational commission, Col.
Hashes said that the report they had
presented was of little value and that
more good resulted from the construction of drill halls and armories than
COUld possible come Lorn the report
of the commission. He defended the

Department   Bitterly   Attacked.
The most outspoken attack on the
miliHa was made at midnight by 1-'.
II. Carvell, who declared that 2* per
cent of the young men of Canada learn
to get drunk at militia camps. When
this was denied by Col, Smith, South
Ontario, Mr. Carvell said he had spent
many years in the militia and knew
-What be  was talking about.
(Continued from pane onei
in,-,- to him was nol practicable, while
Alderman Aiiniindale claimed il was
-nort practicable and one that they
���should urge most strenuously, nnd if
they could not get if by persuasion,
they should get it some other way.
Mr. Lewis was manager of an institution whicli was ;1 credil to the city
and he was proud of it, tie gave Mr.
Lewis the greatest praise as manager, liut thoi'e was ono thing he objected to, Mr. I ewls iricd to secure
* tbe whole advantage of Sapperton as I
pn individual centre, tie did not !
think that fair. The paragraph that
tbe rigM of way would Interefere '���
with the Brunette mill booming i
���ground was lhe kernal of the whole |
thing. The company had not the ex- i
elusive right to Brunette creel;.
Request Most Reasonable,
Mr. Lewis claimed that it the right i
of way  was granted il    would    put j
them cm  of business,    The council
only  ashed  for <lu  feet   for n canal
through some portion of hla property, ;
which the speaker thought most reasonable, and would be of great bene- ;
fit   to  the  back  portion   of  tbe   Brunette   in il 1   prop: rty   pn    whicli   they ;
���paid taxes and got nothing in return.
Alderman Annandale was full up to
teb brim wilh enthusiasm as to the I
industrial possibilities of that section |
uf the city    through    which      every i
railway  that,  at   present,  comes  into
the province, passes.   Brunette creek :
could  be clean d out at a minimum !
or cost.   The city had the dredge to
do the work.   There was a great cry !
of industrial sites being too high, iii
Sapperton one could boy an acre of I
land   for  less than  a   lot   ill   the  west il
end.    lie would ask the mover of the |
resolution  to ask that  the council arrange a  further mooting    with    Mr.
Lewis   aud   see   if  they   could   not   g
him diwn to a more reasonable basis
for  the  I r.at nun;  of  the  proposition.
Alderman   [veiling  consented    and
��� ii" motion as qualified was adopted.
