A contract has been entered Into
between the Western Canada Trust
Co. as receiver for the debenture
holders of the Ocean Kalis company
and Messrs. Klelshhacker and Johnson of San Francisco, whereby the
plant of the Ocean Falls Co. is to be
passed under the control of a merger of Pacific coast pulp and paper
interests. The contract has been confirmed by Mr. Justice Morrison of the
supreme court. Strong opposition
was offered by Lester David, owner of
a majority of the common stock of
the Ocean  Falls Company.
The plant at Ocean Falls is one of
the largest on the coast and is
equipped with modern machinery for
turning out UiO tons of pulp per day
Financial difficulties arose before
the huge plant was completed, with
the result that debenture holders In
England contributed $"1,500,000 towards the company's capital. Creditors raised such a clamor against
the debenture holders trust deed that
orders were received to close down
the plant and for a year it lay Idle.

which it was pointed out that the Vancouver board of trade while not so
much afraid of the Westminster organization, was plainly disturbed at
the united action being taken by the

in the Mexican situation today were
divided between the diplomatic and
the military status.
The South American mediators continued their sessions and for the first
time It became authoritatively known
from them that they considered the
whole range of Mexican affairs as properly embrased In their work. Their
reply to Carranza had made this clear
and while eliminating htm from the
mediation for the time being, It still
was left open to him  to enter later.
It became clear that the polcy at
Vera Cruz would be continued with no
advance of the American forces unless
to repel attack. But it was known
that a definite course of action had
been outlined in the event of a resumption of hostilities and the extension
of the campaign to Mexico City.

"During our trip Oeorge K. Cherry

unknown to science.
"The most important part of our
trip was geographical. In the exploration of an unknown river we have pui
on the map a river nearly 1000 miles
long, the existence of which Is not
hinted at on published maps. The
upper part of its course was unknown
to anybodv except the wild Indiana

was not clear.    It became known that
Huerta  wished    the    negotiations  to
take  place  ln   neutral   territory,  sug-|

But this  had  encountered  opposition
! on   the ground  that Canada,  being  a
j British   colony,   might   introduce  into
the negotiations a F-urepean element,
ind also because it was believed  the

A Mexican woman who is said to have shot several
United States sailors and marines during the fighting in
the streets of Vera Cruz, Mexico, has been arrested and
is to be courtmartialed, according to dispatches from the
It sounds queer to read that a woman whose patriotism prompted her to resist the invaders of her country is
to be given the same treatment as that meted out by the
customs of war to an ordinary spy.
From what can be learned of the situiation at Vera
Cruz prior to the American occupation, it seems almost
certain that the inhabitants of the town had been kept by
the government telegraph censorship in total ignorance of
the difficulties between the United States and Huerta.
They knew nothing of the Tampico incident and President
Wilson's "six p.m." ultimatum never had reached their
ears. The first news they had of trouble with the U. S.
was the arrival of the American fleet and the landing of
the sailors and marines, which they, naturally under the
circumstances, looked upon as a declaration of war.
Of course the Mexicans in Vera Cruz fought back
and it is a tribute to their patriotism to learn that civilians
were most prominent in the resistance.
If, during the civil war in the United States, a foreign
power, after serving an ultimatum on President Lincoln,
had landed troops on American soil, would there have been
no resistance?
No one who knows the Mexicans would attempt to
justify some of their acts or contend that they are a civilized nation, but it does look as though Uncle Sam were
drawing a long bow in attempting to brand those who
resisted at Vera Cruz as violators of international law.

order started soon at Ottawa this American-Mexican business will have an undisputed monopoly of the front page.
The way diplomats talk of "armistice," "mediation," "flag of truce," and similar things down in Mexico
you'd think they were dealing with a civilized nation.
Of course we all want clean milk to drink, but at this

London, .May 5 One of the strongest
and most widely diffused of those
many hidden influences which bo
largely sway International politics is
the Russian Becret police service, or
the Okhrana, to give it the name by
which it is known and feared throughout RubbIb and far beyond its borders.
To the average western European
the methods of and position occupied
by the Okhrana reveal a state of
things so utterly foreign to anything
he- is accustomed to in his own country that simple statements of fact in
regard to the organization are receiv-1
ed bv bun with the frankest incredul-1
This   must   inevitably   be   the   case |
until it is realized that the Okhrana, I
as at present developed, ls entirely divorced from any legitimate function of I
state-   no   matter   how   distorted   and
mistaken;   that   It   is,   in   fact,   today
wholly parasitic, and that it exists for
no purpose save to maintain its own
It is tlie paramount power in Russia.
Its chiefs recognise no superiors, and
are amenable to no laws. It can make
and unmake statesmen, and it has a
short way with those who attempt, or
who are credited with any intention
of attempting, to resist its power. The
fate of Pleave and Stolypin are only
two out of many instances which
might be cited In proof of this statement
Government Is Helpless.
Organized originally as a special
branch > I the ordinary police service,
it has fi many years been utterly
out of hand, and, in the presence of
Its machinations, the government is
really helpless.
The methods resorted to by the
Okhrana are, as has been stated, almost incredible. Azeff, who assassinated I'lehve, was, of course, one of
the most trusted agents of the secret
police, and yet all the time he was
in the pay of the Okhrana he held the
position of leader of the "fighting organization" of the Russian revolutionist  party  in  Paris.
He assassinated i'lehve, the safeguarding of whose life was the special work of the Okhrana. at the bidding of the Okhrana because the "dictator" was credited with a desire to
control the power of the secret service. He was left free by the- government at the bidding of the Okhrana.
in  spite  of the  fact that   M.  'Stolypin
I was  twice  confronted   by   a   full   his-
I tory  of  the  case  in   the    duma    it-
j seV.

some three years later, met a similar
| fate for a similar reason at the hands
I of  the police  sjy,  IJogroff  iB  fresh  In
j every one's memory.
All this, however, reveals only one
of the many phases of the Okhrana's
work. The occasional removal of a
minister may be necessary as a reminder to the authorities of where actual authority resides, but the real
work of the body, the acquisition of
those vast funds which it ever has at
its command lies in other directions.
Opponent of Progress.
The Okhrana is. of course, the
steady and persistent opponent of
progress, as it is also of law and order. Any attempt at reform on the
part of any minister of enlightenment
is Immediately followed by outbreaks
in various parts of the country which
are calculated to prove to Europe, to
the point of demonstration, that such
reforms are clearly  premature.
Yet   such   outbreaks   are-   organized
and carried through by the Becret police and by such organizations as the
Black Hundred, the members of which
everywhere are all In the pay of the
Okhrana. No detail Is omitted. The
whole business is carried through
with a grim stage management, such
as constitutes an outrage on human

Rev. John McNeill Tells Why He. As
a Lad, Attended Service-
Seats Better Now.
(By Rev. John McNeill, pastor ot
Cooke's Church, Toronto.)
You ask me for reasons why we
should go to church. I have gone *e>
long myself, reason or no reason, that
I do not find it easy to say much on
the subject. As far back as I can remember, my two reasons as a lad
would be, first, that the bell was ringing, and second, that my r-uh.r's
voice was backing up the bell. So, between the two. I went. I sure did!
l-ong years have passed and I am go-
infc still. And my voice now barks
up the bell among my lot, with tho
same result, I am glad to say. It's
like asking me for reasons why one
goes to rest, or takes a bath, or eats a
dinner with his friends. Kest, and
refreshing, and food in good company
are  such  obviously  good  things.
I know my quarryman father liked
to go to the Kirk because of the
bodily re>3t, and 1 wish working men
and all hard-driven folk would thins
about it that way still.
"Oil, I'm so tired, when It comes
to Sui.day," says one. Very well,
friend, come in and sit down. We're
not asking you to wheel a barrow, or
work a hammer, or a shovel or buy,
or sell, or boss. And since my father's
day. seats have greatly improved.
They are comfortable now; they were
not then. Besides, ours are all free;
although we don't undertake to
"chuck" anybody who has arrived before the dear non-church-goer puts in
an appearance. And while, in Cooke's
he seems to expect that, and that we
should be just grovelling glad to sen
him! iThe plate, we notice, haa *
sobering effect on him.)
Prayer Refreshing.
I think that men should go to church,
because the acts of worship,  prayer,
praise and preaching, are so refreshing and strengthening.    You notice I
name all three.    I have no sympathy
with certain people who keep saying
, that .they don't go to church to hear
a   man   talking,    although,    usually,
when you hear their man, you agree.
'.There's no need to belittle the preach-
1 ing.    It  should  be  bb  worshipful aa
broken, sometimes their backs, some-   either praise or  prayer.    But preach-
tlmea their   arms,   so��netlmes   their  ing  Bhouldn't    be   everything.    And
noses gush out with blood, sometimes 1 prayer should be natural, warm and
i their eyes Btart out;   for they have 1 sincere;;   and  praise  should be  truly
i the sleights to mix one between two. 1 praising God.    "A man talking," and

Much amusement was caused at
Masterton, New South Wales, at the
way in which a Chinese named Ah
Fong overreached himself in his
gre'ed. Ah Fong was watching the
removal from a lorry of a consignment of miscellaneous articles destined for an auction room, when, pointing to a wooden case which was being carried inside, he inquired, in an
excited tone,   "How rauchee?"
"I sell him to-morrow," replied the
"No   time   to-moller."   answer   Ah
Fong.   "Me buy now," and he secured
I the case for sixteen pounds.

goods in the way that will convince the reader.
The price may be an important factor in getting
business but it is only in exceptional cases when people can be induced to buy goods merely because they
are cheap. Ordinarily the reason is that they want
them. The purpose of advertising is to make people
want the goods.
Don't blame the newspaper because your advertising does not pull as you think it should. If your
goods are right and your prices are right, you have
just as much opportunity of success as the next man.
The newspaper gives you so much circulation for so
much money���it is up to you to make your advertising appeal to the readers by giving it the earmarks
of attractiveness and honesty. You are selling goods
that they want, and it is not difficult to convince
them if you put painstaking effort and thoughtful-
ness into the method of appeal.

An Overtowering Dramatic Masterpiece
The Composite of All That Is Thrilling and Intense
The Big Drawing Card of 1914
Confronted With Nation-wide Prohibition  and  Woman  Suffrage.
Washington. May 6.���House leaders
were taken by surprise today when
the judiciary oommittee, before
which the Hobson resolution for nation-wide prohibition and the Mondell
resolution for woman suffrage, had
been slumbering for months, were
suddenly voted out, without recommendation and put squarely before
the house. The measures propose
amendments to the federal constitution.
Advocates of the resolution will
now direct their efforts against the
rules committee with a view to special rules for consideration ln the
house, without which the measure*
may rest at the foot of the calendar
and be filibustered against Indefinitely. The house leaders think there is
no likelihood of cither resolution being added to the administration program for legislation at this Besslon
of congress.
Leaders in the congressional union
for woman suffrage, elated over the
day's developments, paraded the
streets tonight with a brass band and
flvlng banners. Street meetings were
addressed by prominent women who
are in Washington for the big demon
strut ion Saturday, when suffragist?
from all over the country will march
from the White House to the caoital
and demand the passage of the Mon
dell  resolution.

j is well aware of the propinquity of the

1 his life is not  worth a  minute's ptir-
I chase.    Hit by  bit he has given he-re
i a scrap and there a scrap of the trust i
j given into his keeping two years ago.
! Rut White Wolf has not been fed.
There has been around the walls another pack of wolves of many breeds |
I waiting,  waiting, and  fighting over���
; scraps.    Concession  after  concession !
I has be> 11 flung to them until there is.
' little  le ft.  ami  now.  White  Wolf  can
have the rest.
White Wolf  Is Ordinary.
The terror of the central provinces.
White Wolf, a very prince of brigands, j
is a young man.    He is not much to 1
look at.    An ordinary kind of person, |
short and stout, some say of him that !
he is quite a nice sort of person, and
that it is his men who will not obey
him,    Herein lies the character of the
man.    He  deceives  none  more  than
his  own   men.
For instance, on entering a city he
gives his orders, "Please yourselves;"
after leaving the place, when the work
is done ln the way that he intended
that it should be done, he gives his
men a lecturing for being so cruel, and
urges them as younger brothers to be
more careful in the future. His name
In ramp is Big Brother.
Before he takes a city he lias  laiei
his plans carefully. His spies are sent I
first to gather information.   They sell 1
trinkets, silk handkerchiefs, make a
show  at   mending  crockery,   and   so
forth.   Two days before Lao   Peh-lang]
wishes to enter a city a few dishevel-]
e'd apologies for soldiers go to the ya-
, men and put up the story that thej |
hive-  been  fighting tiie-   White  Wolf.
, White Wolf the'n appears.
Gates Opened to Him.
At 4 a. m., his usual time of attack.
he opens fire with volley after volley
at one ot* the clt)  gate's, then gallops
��� off to t'.ip opposite' gate    and    goes
through tin   same performance. With
j the city in panie*. his allies set fire to
i the Important buildings, and the wildest excitement is worked up. Next the
gates  an   openi d   to  him,    and    he
: marches in, tlie- conquering hero, his
I retinue-  containing  a   whole  train    of
captives and many young girls.
He Is a  voracious traveler, a  man
who  inspires  confidence  in   his   men.
1 who trust his judgment implicitly. On
their  return   from   Liuanchow,   when
; ae knew the troops wen- massing on
! the hillsides, he accomplished 500 li in
I four  days,  over  terrific   roads,  never
stopping 10 sleep.
I White Wolf is undoubtedly a very
��� remarkable man. but, all the same,
' enough of the troops are more or less
in le'agui' with the great Peh-lang to
, explain  much of his  success.

Teutons Organize to Push Aside Competition cf English and
Sofia, Bulgaria, .May 5.-- In Introducing a provisional budget for April and
May into th? Sobranje, recently, M.
Toncheff, minister of finance, observed that owing to the abnormal situation caused by the~ war the administration had been carried on by means
of provisional budgets for the last 17

done from 20 per cent, at the end of

Berlin, May 5.���Germany is launching the most tremendous war for trade
conquest of modern times. Organization upon organization in every branch
of trade and Industry ls being formed
with a definite, specific plan and purpose of capturing a new  market, ex-1
crowding out the trade of some oth3
country. The captains of Germany's
industry are planning a movement that
in effect is a leaf from the famous
agresslve tactics of the Gerniany army
applied to the peaceful conquests of
the world's mai'.s. At home efforts
are belug concentrated on ^jiiinx for
eign made goods and replacing them
with domestic manufacture wuonever
possible, while abroad Germany's
commeidal guns, backed by the vist I
raiiouTC-** of the empire, governmental j
and private, are 10 be tunnel on every
market, especially where American,
English and French trade may now
enjoy an advantage.
Sets Task for Itself.
Germany has set for Itself the tisk
of doubling its export and Import
trade, which at present ls approximately $5(200,000,000. It has chalked
up the figures $10,5u0.000 as a trade
tareet at which to aim.
Like the famous "Grosse General
Stab" (Great General Staff) of the
German army which has every move
outlined and planned In advance for
war, so the German captains of in-
duUry are mobilizing the economic
forces of their country, not defens've
but offensive, for world conquest. Organizations which have been at loggerheads for years, are being Induced
to drop their differences and join in
one united, gigantic crustade against
America, England and France.
Within the last few weeks there
ha3 been organized the "Institute for
Sea Traffic and World Trade;" "The
League of German and Foreign Trade
Associations." "The German-American Economic Union." "The German-
time. The expenditure for the year
1913, M. Honcheff estimated at 223,-
125,000 leva.
The floating debt, amounting in all
to about 440,000,000, will be consolidated by a loan which the government
hopes to secure at an early date. The
provisional budget was passed by tbe
chamber after a heated discusBlen.

For years these horses, with the

(.overnment  B|��{ ; Samson
Has Satisfactory Trial
Capt. Menten and Crew Well Pleased
With the Finest Craft of the Kind
in Pacific Waters.
Fitted up in the best possible shape
with machinery and apparatus in some
instances even more modern than
many an ocean going craft, the new
government snagpuller Samson will
soon be placed in commission tor patrol work on the Fraser and also assist the survey |>arties sent out by
the public works department.
The new hull, built at the Port
CoqnKlam shipbuilding yards, was
brought down river some months ago
and tied up to the government wharf
where the transfer of the machinery
on the old Samson together with the
installation of new and more modern
apparatus has been going on.
Yesterday morning Capt. R. C. Men-
ten gave the order to cast, off and the
boat  headed   up  river on   her  first
trial trip, the engines and machinery
behaving  splendidly ������ throughout the
entire passage.   Another trip will be
made this morning' and  with a few
minor details to be adjusted, it is expected that the boat will be placed in j
commission in abou^tw-o weeks' time.
Registered From New Westminster.
The Samson  will be the  first government boat plying, -tlie Fraser to be
registered    from    New Westminster.
Hitherto it has not bepn necessary for
Dominion owned craft  to be registered but the new order of things will
mean  a  considerable  increase in the
tonnage, papers for which are taken
out at this port.
Everything pertaining to comfort
and seaworthiness has been combined |
in the new vessel. Improvements tak- ]
en from the building of the old Sam- i
son have been inserted in the con-
struction of the new craft enough tu I

the how to twenty feet aft has been
encased In iron.    This together with I
five longitudinal bulkheads makes her
secure    from    being    ripped In hei
seams, a feature which played havoc
with the now discarded hull.
The   Dahl    oil-burning    system  re
places   coa,   as   a  'fuel,    this    being j
in line with the government's policy
in   respect to   the  dredging   fleet  on
