A more representative gathering of
citizens could hardly have gathered
business and professional men amending In overflowing numbers and following an excellent repast served by
the lady members and friends of the
organization, the subject "Public
Health work," delivered hy Dr. I'roc-
teir, was listened to with rapt attention.
Mayor Cray Introduced the speaker,
first   mentioning  the  attitude  of  the
city   council   towards   the  Tranqullle
sanatorium   which   believed   that   the
provincial government should operate
the institution In Its entirety, the cost
to be spread over the entire province.
Dr. Proctor lost no time in explaining his object ln accepting the invitation  to speak at   the  gathering.    He
���was   tremendously   interested   ln   the
work of stamping out the white plague.

though   the   most   valuable   asset   of'
an individual or nation was little appreciated by the average man or woman   until  a  spectre  of  some  dread
disease   cast   its   shadow   across   the
scene.   Some people say it is all very
fine to make sick people well but it
was very much better to prevent people from petting sick.
A>i enormous quantity of suffering
ana loss of life resulted from causes
sary creating added interest.
A special meeting of the school
board will be held at 2 o'clock on
Monday, when the final decision of
the two trustees will be made.

Denver, Colo.. April 29.���Colorado a
seven months' Industrial war claimed
today a toll of at least nine human
lives. This was the verified record at
6 o'clock tonight, divided as follows'
At Forbes���seven mine guards and
one striker dead, with two other strikers believed to have been killed.
At Walsenburg- -One officer of the
militia hospital corps killed, one officer and two enlisted men wounded.
The  Forbes  camp was a  scene of
desolation, virtually all the mine buildings being destroyed by fire.    Here it
was the work of only a few fleet'n^
hours.    It  was about 9:30 a.m.  that|
the   strikers   opened   their  attack  in I
force.   With the women and children!
of the camp barricaded ln the  mine
stop's, the guards under the personal
direction    of    Superlntenden    Nlchol
responded spiritedly. About 10 o'clock
the firing ceased and the camp's assailants  disappeared  as  mysteriously
as they came.    According to Superintendent   Nlchol   three   strikers   were
seen to tumble down the hillside*.
Major Lester Killed.
Fighting  that  practically   encircled
the town continued for five hours at
Walsenburg between strikers, militia
and mine guards.   Major P. P. Lester

The murder of the Hindu is alleged
to have taken place ln November last
near Aldergrove, the supposed bones
of the dead man being found on March
10 in the midst of a pile of ashes
near the lumber plant of the Fern-
ridge Lumber company. Suspicion was
directed against William Knudsen
and 'Ragmal Singh and after a long
search, Knudsen was placed under
arrest in Seattle two weeks ago and
brought to this  city.
The evidence of the Hindu at the
inquest yesterday caused a sensational
turn ln affairs and following the testimony of the older Knudsen, both he
and his son were arrested while Ragmal was also held as a material witness.
The Hindu when placed on the stand
    . told how Slbon Singh had been killed
of the hospital corps met his death, by one of the Knudsen brothers who
shot through the left breast, while |B Btui missing, and the body robbed

Washington. April 29- The scope
of mediation plans for the settlement
of the Mexican crisis was suddenly
broadened tonight so as to include the
entire range of Mexican affairs���not
aloae the critical Issue .between tbe
United States and the Huerta regime,
but alao tbe conflict between the elements of northern aud southern
Mexico which have rent the republic.
This signal enlaigement of mediation followed the receipt late In the'
day, of a formal acceptance by Oeneral Carranza, chief of tbe constitutionalists, of principles of mediation
as proposed by the ambassador of
Brazil and the ministers from Argentina and Chile.
Already tbe United States and General Huerta formally had accepted:
the good offices of these South Affl-1
erirf.n envoys and now as a further,
step General Carranza has been taken
into the deliberations so as to draw-.
every element and faction within the,
range of any settlement which may be
attained.

Earlier in the day the mediators
made another decisive move ln asking
the United States and General Huerta1
to agree to an armistice by which all
military arrangements would be sua

[ negotiations. The mediators confi
dently expect both sides to accept the]
armistice proposal,

eases. In 1913, 154.000 people d!��d In
# the United States through '.his disease 15 000 and 429 in British Columbia Coming closer, Vancouver lost
129 people last year with perhaps the
same average' per population in New
Westminster.
Irving Fisher had estimated
value of a wage-earning life through
this disease at $6000, yet tuberculcsis
was a preventable disease. The avc-r
nne patient stays in the hospital for
tuberculosis two years at an average
cost of $2 per day. The estimate* ol
$6000 was a conservative one. Figure
it out what the United States, Canada
end British Columbia is losing by ihe
disease.
Tuberculosis was  about the streets
and in the homes.   It Is extraord.nary
that any person escapes being brought
down by it.   It Is a criminal work on
the  part of the authorities  to  allow
people to build houses especially cab
ins and rooming establishments where
there is no earthly chance of the luu'l
;ays working Into there homes.    Vancouver   has   buildings   which   should
never exist and the situation is pr.?n
ably  the same  in  New  Westmlnutor.
The housing problem was an Import
ant one In this great work.   Until the-'
authorities take action and not only
compel builders to lay their plan3 1 e-
lore  the  building   Inspector  but  also
consult the health official before be-
in? allowed to proceed.    Under present conditions tuberculosis is simply
being manufactured in our cities
Expectoration   In   etreet   cars
other public  places  was another active  agent  in  spreading the disease.
Health  laws  have been  enacted   but
one rarely hears of a person who expectorates on the stree t being brought
tc Justice.
The speaker likened present conditions   to   the   parable     '  "���"   -���--

the decision go against him in the
first instance.
In the evidence presented last
night, Mr. Tulk admitted that in the
actual application or a license, the
full requirements of the act had not
been complkd with but that these defections were of a- minor character
and could only be thrown out on
technical grounds.
Before adjournment was taken Mr.
Hani-ford enquired, in view of the
decision of the honorable Justice
Clement regarding the Freeman case,
stating at the time that it was flagrant, noncompliance of the act
whether the board Itself intended to
do anything to cancel the license.
Mayor Gray stated that as no order
had its yel been received the board
could do nothing on the matter.
A final decision on the Freeman
case which includes the signing of
the order to close the establishment
by Mr. Justice Clement has as vet
not been received. An early decision

WHITES VS. JAPS.
The widespread public interest in and sympathy given
lo the stand taken on the Fraser river for white control
of the salmon fishing at least demonstrates one fact, that
British Columbia is awakening to a realization of the oriental menace. The manner in which public bodies in this
��-ity and throughout the surrounding municipalities are
taking up the question augurs well for the success of the
I movement to force the Japanese from the position they
occupy in one of the most important industries of the province.
The question is not one of antagonism to the Japanese; it is simply a matter of self-preservation along the(
lines that "charity begins at home" and in dealing with it)
British Columbians need have no scruples about doing
everything to safeguard the interests of the whites in this
province.  Japan herself has made the problem of the Pacific coast an easy one by the attitude which she has
adopted towards whites in the land of the mikado.   There
it would be impossible for a similar situation to develop
with the positions of the two races reversed, simply because the Japanese government takes care that important
industries are controlled by Japanese and that obstacles
arc placed in the way of foreigners becoming at all powerful in a commercial way.
While the problem of Japanese fishermen on the Fra-
Iser is an important one, it must not be forgotten that it is
mly part of a far greater question, the oriental menace in
(its entirety, and, remembering this, immediate and effective action should be taken to demonstrate that Brtish Columbia means business in her determination to keep this
part of the Pacific coast firmly and securely in the hands
jf the wihtes.

London, April 89.- A few weeks
i ago tlie party papers were dlSCUSSing
the Question us to whether the hodfce'

or would, at any rate, introduce an
amendment forbidding its use in i.i

It may as well be admitted at once
that the' question at issue is a religious
one. All the' ink in Europe spent on
proving it to be a constitutional one
will in ver affect the fact that tbe difficulty is fundamentally rlelgious, and
that tlie- constitutional element, though
of course, it comes very seriously into the matter, is only a result of the
I religious question.
It is getting on for a century sine '
'any similar incident occurred, and the
! difficulty then was not n religions one.
I Then tlie question arose over the re-1

��� the house of lords  refused  to give

self came  to the conclusion  that the

mean, of course, simply is that the
���lightest hint of aggression by the tri-
���ple alliance would bring tlie whole of
the united kingdom into absolute unity in a moment.
Position Is Anomalous.
The fact is lhat the position of the
Knglish soldier has always been a pe-
cullarly anomalous one.   The standing
army grew up under Ciomwell and it
was used by Cromwell in a way which
made it anathema to the Tory party.
The Cromwelllan army was, of course,
j disbanded  at  the  restoration.   When,
I however, Charles II. came over from
1 the great  house on   the    square,    In
Hruges,   where   he   had   been   living
j during the protectorate, he found the
I Tories  even   more   decided   than   the
Whigs in their opoBition to his plans '
for a military establishment.
Gradually, from the very necessity
of the occasion, the standing army
grew up. It was added to, regiment
by regiment, under Charles and James,
and though some of it was again disbanded at the revolution of 1688, William III. began adding to it once more,
and, under the (iuelphs. it continued
Its gradual growth into the army of
today.
In spite of this no king could ever
obtain more than an annual army bill.
Technically, It was always the king's
army, but It was a king's army which
the commons controlled through the
power of the purse, and it could, at
the end of each financial year, be disbanded by the withdrawal of the army
act.
Charles Paniell illustrated this very
clearly on that summer night when he ,
kept  Lord    iieaconsficld's    liattallau <
marching through the lobbies, In the
first great triumph of obstruction. In ;
many   other   curious   ways,   too,   the.
old   distrust  of  the    army    lingered
through   Knglish  social  customs,  and
only   a   few   years   ago   Mr.   Kipling
devoted a famous ballad to the faint
survival  of  this  indefinable antagon- j
Ism In the national consciousness:
"O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, |
an' Tommy go away;
Hut it's Thank you, Mr. Atkins, wh n
the bund begins to play."
It   is   to  this   unconscious,  perhaps
aflmost unreasoning, fear of aggression
that  the   Liberal  and   Labor  leaders
have appeal ut the present moment
present embryonic condition of the in-
ejuiries, and the need en- experience in
the handling  of the  subject.

The morning paper is the paper a woman reads
just before she starts on a shopping trip���or on any
sort of buying errand. The ads that decide her as
to where to buy the things she wants���or, which
at least, induce her to go to certain stores or places
to investigate the offers made in the ads. It is but
safe to say that if she reads the morning paper for
NEWS, she will also read it for buying opportunities.
The amount and kind of INFLUENCE a news-,
paper exerts is greatly important to its advertisers j
.-for the advertising in a newspaper receives little j
attention or credence unless the paper has the en-|
tire confidence of its readers as to its politics, as to'
its treatment of pubuic questions, and as to its carefulness in the treatment of news.   "Character" in a
newspaper is as potent for good or evil as in an individual.

been ciiied, had been retained and it
hail be', n found that since these same
patients had returned to their homes
they hail earned a total of 161,000 In
wage's Kach of these patients had
cost the institution $260 which is an
example of what  It  was  worth.
The suggestion had been made from
the government that before regular
aiel would be forthcoming the Institution must be prepared to take care of
advanced stages. This, thought I)r
Procteir. was a fallacy and more for
the work of regular hospitals as it was
impossible to cure these advanced
cases.
Deficit to  be Overcome.
A deficit of $25,000 had been con
traded during the past two years
which must be wipid out. The institution is relying on aid from the gov-
ernni'iit. municipalities, patents' fees
and private donations. The majority
of tlie- patients today pay the Institution ii'it one cent but that question is
never thought of when asking admittance
Wliu' are we going to do about It?
asked Mr. Proctor. Is this work to
stop.' Is our institution to close for
the lack of financial support? Not
one of those who have not visited the
Kamleee ps institution can realize its
worth To close this institution
would be a tragedy and a lasting disgrace' to the province.
The' speaker did not know why a
government , takes responsibility of
smallpox cases yet shirks the work
of presenting an even worse disease
such as tuberculosis. The board of
directors will ge> on with the work
at Traiieiuille. The government will
assist but not sufficiently to allow
the institution to keep out of debt.
They therefore are forced to ask aid
from the citizens at large. To the
people of New Westminster they want
your interest, your generosity and
your service. An adage' applicable' to
such a situation is: What I spent 1
had; what I spent I lost; what I saved
I have.
in moving a hearty vote of thanks
to Dr. Proctor for his able address. D.
8. Curtis, a director of the Tranqutlle
sanitorium, said that present ilay people did not know what sacrifice meant,
They had their autos and good times
hut yet had not sufficient funds to
7eep such an institution going.. At
' :ie present time no less than 1K0 ap-
iillcatinns for admittance were on the>
books, a majority of which were advanced   cases.
Sheriff T. J. Armstrong in seconding

Policeman Hunt heard tlie report and
ran to the room. Adams was dead
and blood was flowing from a hole in
his forehead. His watch dangled from
its chain, the case was open, as If
he bad consulted it before he used
tho gun.
Pains seems to have been taken by
Adams to conceal his Identity. He
rented the room Saturday for a week,
and told the Japanese who conducts
the house that his name was Zlmple,
according to the Investigations of Dan
Phelan, emergency officer, and when
the Japanese asked him to register
Adams told the- Japanese to do so, af-
ti'twnrd having the clerk write the
name again with legibility. Hut concealment was In vain, for he was recognised by Policeman O. Marcy as a
man With whom he had been employed lor a season in the woods near Du-
luth, Minn., several years ago, and
with whom he had chatted frequently
since their removal to the northwest.
Not a scrap of paper was fuiind among
his   effects.
Adams lias filled several important
posts in the country about Spokane in
the last five years, said Marcy. He
was an abstainer, genteel of appearance, and had $35 in tils pocket. He
had suffered severely from rheumatism in the last year, and maintained
bachelor quarters here for several
months while undergoing treatment.
He was a native of New York state.

discontinued, at any rate temporarily,
the Kelowna board of trade haa left
no stone unturned to have the service
restored. Several conferences have
taken place between the board anu
Superintendent McKay with the
above most satisfactory result. Shippers, merchants, and the public generally of the Okanagan thoroughly
appreciate the keen interest Superintendent McKay has taken in the
development of the district since his
appointment to his responsible post
two years ago. and his efforts in
having the Sunday service restored
tends to materially Increase the cordial relations which have existed between the Okanagan people and the
C. P. It
Synchronous with the resumption
of this service the new passenger
steamer .Sicamous, which has been
built on the Okanagan lake, will be
ready for launching. This steamer
will greatly facilitate travel to Kelowna and other lake points. A determine d move is being made to
make Kelowna a popular tourist resort. The district lends itself admirably for this purpose and the K?-
lowna board of trade is at the present time urging the C. P. R. to Inaugurate excursions from prairie and
other points.

Greece is due to have evacuated the

Though the government lias, as yet,

of intrigue.
With Austrian and Italian courtiers,
all pulling different ways, and Turkish pashas straggling for supremacy
not only over the Christian chiefs, but
over one another, the prospects must
be the reverse of hopeful.
The members of the international
commission of control are already entirely out of heart and see scarce' a
gleam of sunshine among the many

000,000
Tax Large for Each Family.
This is, of course, pure guess work,
ami as it means a tax of f.13 pir head,
or say ��t per family, in a country
where a man is consld red wealthy on
��20 per annum, the chiffre may be regarded at somewhat optimistic.
Moreover, fully one-third of Hie' million inhabitants have never paid any
taxes to any government and whatever
Ideas the average' Albanian'may nave
about independence, the payment of
taxes is not one of them. Of these 18
millions, however, nine are ear-marked for the getularmie, thus leaving but
�� 160,000 for the civil administration,
the payment of interest on loans and
the prince's civil list.

A DUKE'S OPERA.
BUSINESS DIRECTORY
Bto Grace of Argyll Haa Had Bad
Lack With Bis Show.
Several months ago, the Duke of
Argyll, who Is a former Governor-
General ot Canada, completed the
libretto of a new opera founded on
the life of an ancient Celtic king of
Ireland, whose period was contemporary with tbe Carthage of Queen Dido.
The music was to be composed by
Learmont Drysdale, of Edinburgh,
and the opera produced by Oscar.
Hammerstein at tbe London Opera
House.
Vicissitudes folksw most people
who wander in tbe fields of art or
worship at the shrines of the Muses,
lAd even a great nobleman who has
not only won nearly all the orders
and decorations of Christendom, but
also a wife from the British royal ;
bouse, is not exempt from tbe trial I
nnd disappointments that vex tbe artistic temperament.
The Duke of Argyll's opera ��� its
title is 'Flonh and Tera"���has not
yet been produced, and, as be told a
press representative at Kensington
Palace the circumstances of tbe delav,
It was clear that he felt none of the
vexation of spirit which would de-
press and sadden less exalted workers in tbe world of art.
The duke Ions ago completed bis
share in tbe opera, which tells of an
event in tbe life of a Celtic monarch
and a Princess Urania, who flourished
In Ireland about the time when tbe
Phoenicians traded to those shores.
Those early traders bad discovered
the secret of glass manufacture, and
tbe crystal baubles which they carried
with them ln large quantities for
trading purposes roused the cupidity
of tbe wild Irishmen of tbose days.
The bartering leads up to a dispute,
and eventually tbe monarch is carried off to Carthage, and this famous
city being the scene of the next act
gives fine opportunities for display.
The libretto waa sent to Mr. Drysdale to compose the music, because
the duke wag attracted by the reputation be bad gained as a musician and
also because he wag a descendant of
the famous Sir Thomas Learmont, the
Border poet, and was steeped ln the
ancient lore of tbowe days on which
tbe story of tbe opera was based.
Tbe history of this opera Itself,
however, Is a subject full enough of
tragedy to form tbe basis of a story
ln itself, for Mr. DrysJale died on the
completion of the music, and, as Is
well known, Mr. Hammerstein's connection with opera In London was
dramatically severed.
Tbe Duke of Argyll seen nothing r'
his opera since, a fact that be takes
with complacence, as It is In the safe
hands of Miss Drysdale In Edinburgh,
tbe sister of the composer, who now
owns his effects, Including the opera.
The duke would like to see the opera
produced, and It appears Miss Drysdale is equally anxious and willing to
negotiate wltb anyone in a position
to produce the opera properly, and
has unbounded faith in the excellence
of her late brother's work.
It will be a pity if so much good
work should go for nothing, especially as there is a constant cry of the
paucity of English opera and of the
want of national talent in this branch
of art. Those who bave heard the
music are much Impressed by its
tunefulness as well as by Its power
and passion, and It may be taken
that in this section of Britain's history tbe Duke of Argyll, known to all
trues Gaels aa tbe MacCallean Mhor,
Is an authority who can be depended
on to create the correct historical
atmosphere.
A Huge Punch-Uowl.
A  correspondent  of Country  Life
sends some particulars about an extraordinary punch  brew  which  took
place on Oct. 25, 1694.
The biggest brew on record was
| made at tbe bouse of the Rt. Hon.
Edward Russell, commander-in-ebfef
of His Majesty's Forces in the Mediterranean. A garden fountain, plac-|
ed where four walks met. was used
as a bowl, and in it the following in
gredients were poured:���
Four hogsheads of brandy. 25,000
lemons, twenty gallons of lime-juice,
1,300 cwt. of white Lisbon sugar. 5
pounds of grated nutmegs, 300 toasted biscuits, and one pipe of dry-
mountain Malaga.   Here, indeed, was

The King's Buttonholes.
His Majesty's taste in flowers is
rather different from that of his father. King Edward went In almost entirely for gardenias, and every day
when he was in residence at Buckingham Palace two or three.perfect
specimens were always placed In bis
room for his use. He would wear
one in the morning and then change
it for another ln tbe evening.
On the other hand, King George
loves variety. For evening wear, of
course, a white flower Is de rigueur,
aud His Majesty patronises either a
small white rose, a gardenia, or even
a dainty pheaaant-eyed narcissus.
For morning and afternoon wear be
is very partial to Parma violets, a
small buncb of sweet peas, or a small
unopened rose.

Afghans Like Music.
Afghans have a penchant for musical instruments and the wealthier
classes import some costly makes. It
is of record that an Afghan nobleman sent out to Europe for a grand
piano and on lt3 arrival had all the

it most convenient to play It while
squatting on the floor.
