Douglas, Ariz., May 20.���Telling of
a four days' battle before Cuaymas
during which the federals were forced
lo rlire to their trenches, a telegram
was tecetved hero today from General
Alvaredo who led the constitutionalist forces. The fighting began on
May 22, when the federals forced hack
a small force of constitutionalists. A
desultory fire continued until the 24th
���when heavy insurgent reinforcements
arrived wnd the federals were forced
t.i retire. On the night of the. 25th
the routing of tiie federals was completed, they retiring to the trenches
on  the edge of the city.

C.   N.   R.   Rates to  Be  Under Jurisdiction of Railway  Board���Arrangements   Acceptable to   B.   C.
Ottawa, May 26. -Despite the great
heat Which prevailed, the members
of Ihe house Of commons throughout
three sittings today kept pounding
away on the details of the C. N. R.
resolutions, which are now in committee. The talk throughout was
confined to less than a dozen members. On the opposition there were
six or eight members who have made
a study of the resolutions who kept
Premier Borden und Hon. Arthur i
Melghen busy answering questions i
and replying :.i criticisms. Probably '
the most interesting discussion arose
in the afternoon when the question
cf the extent lo which Mackenzie &
Mann are personuallv liabl-? was under discus-Ion. Mr. Borden said that
that they had bei n called on to give
security for twi uty-elgbl millions of
outstanding d- bis made up of twenty
millions of contingent liabilities owed
11 the ban'is and eight millions owed
lo various subsidiary railway companies. If the securities already arranged Tor wore not sufficient, they would
be called on to put up more.
More Security Demanded.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Mr. Prank Car-
veil and other liberal? maiutp-'ned
'hat all Ihe government hud done was
to make Mackenzie and Mann give
guarantees to pay their own debts.
Mackenzie and Maun should be called upon, they argued, to put up personal security for the forty millions
to be guaranteed by the government.
Mr. Borden replied that the government had gone further than any former government in dealing with the
railroad company.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier inquired as to
whether the rates on the c.N.R. would
be under the jurisdiction of the railway board, would this agreement supersede the agreement between the
C.N.R. and the government of British Columbia in regard to the rates.
Mr. Borden replied that it would.
No other policy was possible.
Hon. Charles Murphy asked if the
government of British Columbia had
made any represenrations in respect
to tho matter, whereupon Premier
Borden read correspondence which
passed betwen him nnd Sir Richard
Mcllride. In these communications,
Mr. Borden told Sir Richard in effect, that the board of railway commissioners would have control and
Sir Richard acquiesced, Sir Wilfrid

A number of ratepayers from Sapperton registered kicks against the

employed to report impartially with
a view of reducing the expense. This
matter will be reported on by the
mayor at the next council meeting.
There was no protest against the sewerage  scheme itself.
Tile only appeal pertinent to the
court was that of VV. C, Bournes,
Cumberland street, who contended he
was assessed on 1-00 feet whilst it
should be 060 feet.
An examination of the city maps
was resorted to and it was demonstrated to Mr. Bournes that his property was formerly subdivided but subsequently cancelled. Therefore Mr.
Bournes owns the roads through the
original subdivision, which had to be
assessed according to its present position. That made tbe difference ln the
frontage and the assessment was accordingly   confirmed.

Washington. May 2B.���Members of
the cabinet were optimistic today alter an exhaustive review of all communications that have passed between
President Wilson and the American
commissioners to the Mexican mediation conference at Niagara Falls. It
was asserted from an official source
thit negotiations had so far progressed that a preliminary basis for peaceful solution of tlie international differences had been reached. This, lt was
said, soon would take the form of a
protocol which probably would be signed by agents ot Qeneral Huerta's government and by the I'nited States.
When the cabinet met. the president laid before It all developments
and stipulations thus far proposed to
the South American envoys by the
representatives of General Huerta.
Among the messages received from
the seat of the peace conference, was
one confirmatory of press dispatches
that one of Huerta's envoys had declared that the agrarian question
would not be permitted to disrupt the
international effort to avert war be-
i .veen the United States and Mexico
and to insure the ultimate restoration of peace to all Mexico.

The bill introduced in the Dominion house bv the
minister of justice to make advertisers live up to their
statements and to prevent them printing statements on,
which they cannot make good is a piece of legislation
which long has been needed in this country and, for that
matter, in a good many other countries as well.

game artist the bona fide advertiser suffers as well in"" '""
The original intent of advertising put out by the man
who lives up to his honor with the buying public is not to
sell his wares without investigation on the part of the purchaser, but to attract the would-be buyer to his place of
business and there show him what good value he can get
for his money, not only in the line advertised, but in other
lines as well.
Unfortunately for the good-faith advertiser, there
are many men who persist in keeping alive the crook's belief in the old saw that a fool and his money are soon parted! they are ready to swallow all sorts of extravagant
statements of hundred per cent, profits and spend their
coin on gambling games where there isn't one chance in a |
thousand for them to win or even play even. That kind
of thing, when the victim begins to realize that he has been
bitten, does immense damage to the value of honest advertising and the men who sincerely reckon publicity as an essential part of modern, straightforward business methods
will be the first to commend the government for its measure to protect the money in the people's pockets from the
raids of the sharks.

Here  again   the   Republican,   vote  appears to have increased partly at the
expense of the Democrats, hut chiefly
ut tbe expense of the Progressives. In
Massachusetts the Progressives showlpioi
a slight gain as a  n suit of the state
elections,  and  this  is Maid  to be the
only state where they are well organized.    Even here, however, there was
a   remarkable  slump   in  one   district,
the   Progressive   vote  dropping   from
9,000 in 1912 to B.OOO In 1914,
Explanations Offered.
Perhaps   the   most   notable   decline
in   the   Progressive   vote   was   in   lhe
seventh New Jersey district, where
an election was held to fill the vacancy causi d by tlie death of Congressman Bremner. who was a Democrat. President Wilson put forth extraordinary efforts to retain this seat,
but the Republicans won with 10,020
votes, the Democrats being second
with 5,380, while the Progressives had
only 620. It Is explained that there
were labor troubles in Pate:son that
destroyed the Chances of the Progressive candidate, who was more radical
than  lie ought to have  been.    There

Don-,van   has  been  too  busy  to  be
much   in   a,   reader,   and   it   mav   he
taken   tor  granted that the  ideas  he
has  upon  the subject of physical fit-
nes are  not   those conveyed  to him
by some theorist.    They are the fruit
of n lifetime rpent in keeping fit am,
in  keeping other people fit.    He  believes that physical  fitness    for    the
middle-aged man and tlie man who is
! still further advanced in life is easily
i enough   attainabll .      All    that    is   required   is   some   will   power,   and,   of
! course,  some  intelligence.     It     is    a
; matter of diet and exercise.    The man
| of lifly  won  wants to be able to run
i ;i iniii- or lift a couple   of   hundred I coffee,  and
j pounds or knock out a burly ruffian'warm  milk
can easily place himself in a condition
i io  no  it  if in-  really  is  in  earnest.
I He   needs   to   eat  less,   and   exercise
: more   and    practice   .deep   breathing,
and do without tobacco and alcohol.
Down on Alcohol.
Donovan   is   somewhat   of   a   craiiK
upon  tlie  subject of eating.     He   be
idea of too much drinking is any
d: inking. He says that alcohol should
be regarded as a poison, and everyone knows that even a very little poison is a bad tiling. He can find no
excuse lor the drinking of anything
hut beer, Spirits are taboo witli him,
and wine is almost as bad as whiskey.
Hut if a man insists upon drinking he
may luve two or t iree glasses of beer
in tlie course of a day. If he drinks
slowly tht beer may not seriously injure him. He has an idea that much
V, the craving for drink at meal times
<S due to the fact that between meals
we do not drink enough water. He
says that three quirts of water ought
to be imibed iu the course of the day.
Then at meal times there will not be
the demand for liquids. He is also
opposed to the drinking of tea and
after water
Those  who
drinking tea or coffee ought to drink 1
plenty cf milk with it. and the drink-1
ing ought to be done at meal time.
For  Liqh*  Breakfast.
We   find   this   authority   flatly   op-
\ posed   to   the   medical   men   w'-o   say
that  breakfast ought  to be  the  best
; meal.    He is against a heavy break-
thing of a vegetarian, but a discriminating one, for he does not endorse
all vegetables.    He divides them into I
two   clases.     In   the   first   he   places'
spinach, string beans, cauliflower and
cabbage, and insists   that    cabbage
ought to be well cooked.    These veg- '
etables  ought   to   be   eaten   freely.   In;
the  black  list,   as   far  as  be  is  con-',
cerned,  go  tomatoes,  cucumbers,  let- ���
nee  and   radishes,    There   is  a   sort,
of twilight zone in the vegetable king-1
dom  that  is  inhabited  by asparagus,
turnips, beans and peas.    He does not
recommend them to the man who de-
res   to   be   in   good   physical   condition.
Get Plenty of Sleco.
As far as meat is concerned. Donovan says that beef and mutton are In
I ��� class"hy themselves.    He is a strong
he    places'I advocate of the Fletcher system, and
insist  upon i cautions against any bolting of meats
he believes that walking is the best
for general purposes, since every one
can walk a little If he tries. The best
exercise he knows for the man Who
desires to abate his growing waist line
is "dry'' swimming, a sort of exercise
that is to be had by lying on the floor
and going vigorously through the. mu-
liens   required   iu   swimming   on   the
Thursday evening, In Granville hall,
au attempt will be made to form
an Kburne Ratepayers' association.
Eburne is the only district in Point
Grey which has not a ratepayers' association, and a large turnout at this
meeting is much desired.
To the man who smokes he says that
tne   best  thing  to  smoke   is  a   pipe,;
the best best is a cigar. The cigarette T*
is condemned whole-heartedly because \
of tin- general practice of inhaling it.
He  differs   with  such   authorities  as'
Edison in the matter of sletping hours.
The old saying of "seven hours for a

"Unquestionably the must Important
factor iu the situation today," reports

correspondents, "is the approach of
Zapatr toward Mexico City. Villa Is

of Mexico City, with that city just captured and lvs army admittedly without sufficient ammunition t<> attempt

but Mexico City is al his fret, which
means loot fur his forces, and loot

"Carranza professes faith In the loj

Eniillano Zapta are Indians from the

"Snce the federal! wire driven out

Juarez correspondent of tbe New York
Herald, "these men have exercised
full sway, using their power to establish what amounts to a dictatorship.
All the officers iii their command have
been authorized to sign Domingo Ar-
rieta's name to any order they chooae
lo issue. The result Iiis been wholesale confiscation, seizures and death.
Foreigners, principally, Germans, Britishers and Americana, have been the
principal sufferers."
Wilson  Is  Apprehensive.
While the administration properly
tries to mask its deep concern, it is
known that President Wilton Is gravely apprehensive of the dreadful oon-
si iji.i nces that would probably attend
the staid, a crumbling of Hureta's government iu the capital. Even Mr.
Hryan, who frequently declared from
Chatauqua platforms that the United
States would never become involved in
war If he wen secretary of state,
seems to be reconciled to lhe possible
worst. In a lecture i:i Ilrooklyn last
week he said that he "thanked Cod
WO had a president who. while hoping
for satisfactory results from rn. iliu-
tion, was yet prepared for an emergency."
According to the Washington correspondent ol the New York World,
"the general staff has decided that
;:7,,iiiiii Americans can handle any situation that may arise in Mexico City
and plans have been completed to put
that number of men in the capital.
When the administration feels that
the fall of Mexico City is near the
Fourth and Sixth brigades of the Sec*
ond army divisli a will be sent from
Galvi stan to Vera Cruz. Major Hen.
eral Leonard Wood will command this
division, which will lead tho movement toward the City of Mexico. If
the crises ari.-es before the Fourth
and sixth brigadi s arrive al Vera
Cruz, the Second brigade, undei General Funston, with every available man
in the fleet, will push forward."
Mediation a Hcpe and a Danaer.
lt is thus seep thai the administrate 'i is facing a situation of exceeding
difficulty and danger. Thi downfall
of Huerta, an i vi nt it has been h p ag
for and working for I ir a year, set mB
imminent, and the president und Mr.
Bryan now dread that it may come

which holds out the only hopi of salvation from armed occupation of

his most difficult duty i f dealing with
the peril that hangs over the Mexican
capital. The necessity of maintaining everj asnect ol good faith with
Huerta and the m idlato e forbids his
taking the necussarj steps that full
regard for preparedness would require. He must nol mass more troops

To slacken the selling pace in the hot season���to ���

which has no place in modern business.
If we think we cannot keep our business booming in
summer time, we surely will not.
What a jolt it must have been to the fur trade, when
the first mid-summer fur advertisement was run in
a daily paper! Now many fur stores are following
the example of that progressive fur man who dared
to believe that fur sales need not go down as the
mercury goes up.

Mayor Gray invited any ratepayers
appealing to place the case before the
court. ���   ,
Object to High Cost.
VV ll. Keary. formerly mayor of the
city said he appeared representing a
���umber of property owners. These
owners were nol opposed to tn<>

Peter McDougnll, of Sappertor,
approved of    Ihe  scheme.    -)u,
sidered the assessment  exci     .,
compared with lhat of another parto?
the city.   The most expensive charg
11 so
in-the other part was trom lfi to 17)
cents per foot. That was his only ob-1
Alderman Kellington explained that'
the Right)! streei and other west end .
Bewers,   were  simply  sanitary  sewers
and   nrtde  no    provision     for    storm
water,     Sapperton   was   having   sanitary    aud    storm    sewers    combined
which Mould do for all time.    If the 1
people   who    were    only     paying    17
cents wlslinl to pin on permanent Improvements they    must    construct    a
storm sewer whicli would cost an additional 1(1 or 17' cents, lie considered
the   Sapperton  combination   was    the
cheaper mode and the best.
The mayor also pointed out lhat
several ratepayers were paying on the'
-torin   sewer,  at   present,   whicli   was
nol draining their property at all.
Mr. Sclater. Cumberland street,
thought the city would have to grow
faster than it had for the past thirty
years before they needed llio sewer
up Richmond Btreet way, The cost of
".! cents a  foot looked  big to him.
Mr. Peardon said he had lived for
si vi n years on Richmond street and
agreed with the previous speaker as
t" Its needs. Up wag not against the
sower system, but he considered it
nu Injustice to have to pay for something they were not going 10 benefit
Not a Question of Cost.
Mr, McQuarrie, solicitor, pointed
out that these matters did not come
within the jurisdiction of the court.
They   were  tin re  to decide as to  the
assessment In respect to this sower
; -work���whether tbey were fairly assessed or not.    The; cost of the work
! had  been already disposed of by the
! city council,
The    Mayor    We    have    power   to
I recommend to the city council that
the plans be submitted to another e.n-
. gineer,
1    Mr.  McQuarrie���You may do that
jas members of tbe council, but not
as a court of revision.
Mr.  Keary    What    Mr.    McQuarrie
J says is true legally;  only as Ibis is a
j court of Inst resource we come before
you not as objecting lo tlie sewerage
scheme for Sapperton, but asking
that some consideration should bo
given   to the  question  of costs.    The
jjliins   may   he-   altered   Some   way   so
Unit tbe cost may be reduced. We
don't want any law on lhe. matter,
but to arrange it in nu amicable way.
If possible.
The mayor said he would report
tin; matter to the council and it
might take action. They all wished
to reduce the cost as much :i�� possible. New tenders might be asked
for and tne superintendent and chairman of the board ol works might
furnish prices for some part of tho
sewer to see if it were possible to do
it by day labor. Considerable
Changes In the plan would lie necessary if the cost were to be reduced.
If the city council wished to go further and have another engineer to report he would certainly bo In favor
of it.
