. _..;> May Day committee has de-
|.elded to bold the postpone.i May Day
ball on Friday evening, May 27. At
last night's meeting ol the committee all the members were in favor ol
going ahead with it as arranged, as
u great many people had been dlsap
pointed on May Daj night. The music bus been arranged for and the ball
cleared and bo there will he but little
extra expense- in having the ball a
few weeks later than was at flrst Intended.
The few ticketB Which were sold
I for the dance will still be good on
tlie twenty-seventh and a record
crowd is expected to turn out. Details ol the ball will be arranged by
.1. Mahoney. Gowan McGowan, A. G.
Beatty, W. A. Gilley and N. R. Brown.
It was feared that the committee
would come out far in the hole as
far as the financial end of the entertainment was concerned, but lasl
night this proved to be erroneous, the
finance committee reporting that on
the whole the celebration would almost   pay  for  itself.
When the dance comes off there will
be   an   addition   to  (he revenue  from
the   sale   of   tickets   and   then   it   is
'thought that there will be a good bal-
'ance in tbe bank.
W, C. K. Baker anounced that Ju.'ge
, lloway had expressed to him his re-
I gret at being unable to attend the
| celebration on May Day, and had
'asked him to explain to the committee that he was out of the city at the
time.
The secretary was instructed to
write to tlie Baden-Powell scouts who
were injured here on May Day, expressing tbe regret of the committee
that the accident occurred. The committee will probably pay for the medical attendance to tbe boys.
During the course of the meeting
congratulations were showered on I
Chief Watson for the May Day parade, which was described by several
speakers as tbe best ever seen here
in   the   history   of   the   city.
No one could see how the chief
had obtained the results he had on
the outlay he bad made, wliich was
not greatly In excess of that of former years. The only regrets expressed were on the semi-ready condition of Columbia street which bad
compelled the parade to abandon the
ancient   route  to  the park.
The  affairs of  the committee  wlll
be wound up at a meeting to be held
Ion  the Tuesday following the dance.

London,   May 10.���While  the  rulers
and representatives of foreign nations
are assembling here lor the obsequies
of the dead sovereign, the various
necessary formalities incident to tin-
sad evenl are being gradually completed. The widowed queen has sent
a touching personal message to the
nation, written In unassuming style
and recalling similar Intimate messages wnicii Queen Victoria was ui
the habit of addressing to her people.
King George bus a Idressed messages to the army and navy and to
the Indian princes ami people.
Quetn Mother's Message.
The queen mother's message to the
nation follows: "From the depth of
my poor broken heart I wish to express to the whole nation and our
kind people we love so well my deep
felt thanks for all their touching sympathy in my overwhelming sorrow
and  unspeakable anguish.
"Not  alone  have  I   lost  everything
in him, my beloved husband, but the
nation too has suffered an irreparable ���
loss  by the  loss of their best friend '
and   sovereign,   thus   suddenly   called
away.    May  God  give   us  bis  divine I
help to bear this heaviest of crosses
which lie has seen fit to lay upon us,
'His  will  be done.'
"Give him thought in your prayers,
which will comfort and sustain me
ln all that I have to go through. Let
me take this opportunity of expressing my heartfelt thanks for all the
touching letters and tokens of sympathy I have received from all classes,
high and low, rich and poor, which
are so numerous that 1 fear it will
b" impossible for me ever to thank
everybody individually.
"I confide my dear son to your
care, who. I know, will follow in his
dear father's footsteps, begging you
to show him the same loyalty and devotion you showed bis dear father. I
know tha! both my dear son and
daughter-in-law will do their utmost
to   merit   and   keep   it."
Message   to   the   Navy.
One of tbe first message issued by
King   George,   who   has    long    been
known   as   "The   Sailor   Prince,"   was j
addressed   to   the   navy.     In   it   the ���
king says:     "It is  my  wish on ace s-
slon   to   the   throne   to   make   known .
to   the   navy   how  deeply   grateful   I
am  for its faithful and distinguished
services   rendered   to  the   late   king,
my   beloved  father,  who ever showed j
the greatest solicitude for its welfare'
and   efficiency.
"Educated and trained in that pro-'
fesslon which 1 love so dearly, retirement from duty has in no sense diminished my feelings of affection for
lt. For thirty-three years I have bad
the honor of serving in the navy, and
such intimate participation in its life
and work enables me lo know how
thoroughly I can depend upon that
spirit of loyalty and zealous devotion
to duty of which the glorious history
of our navy is the outcome. That
you will ever continue to be. as in
the past, the foremost defenders of
your country's honor. 1 know full well.
Your fortunes will always be followed
by me with deep feelings of pride,
affection and interests.
"GEORGE   V."
Wil1  Change  Declaration.
.lohn   B.   Redmond,   leader   of   the
Irish parliamentary party, lias written
to   Premier   Aaqtilth   reminding   him
of the favorable expressions when recently the question was raised in par-
lament  by  tbe Duke of Norfolk, the
. foremoi I I lai hi lie In England, of ab il-
ishing from the declaration which the
monarch musl   take before a  in w partial ���nt.  the  ancient   wor Is  abjuring
the Church ol  Rome, which Mr. \ifti-
- nioiiil   declares  are   most   offensive   to
, all Catholics,    The cabinet  toda;.   decided  to  Introduce  a  bill   amending
the declaration ol  the  king  wherein
he  asserts   his   disbelief  in   the  substitution  and  adoration  of  the  Virgin
j and Saints, and that he makes declaration   wil bout   mental   reservation   or
dispensation  from the  pope or other
authoi Itles,
For the declaration that tlie fore,
goln. doctrines and the mass "are
superstitious and idolatrous," it is proposed tn substitute "are contrary to
my belief" and omit reference to the
pope.
Majority Favor Change.
The majority of tlie members of
parliament are believed to favor the
changes but the Orangemen and extreme Protestants will oppose them.
The Catholics wish tlie entire declaration abolished but the law officers
Of the crown consider such a safeguard against a Catholic monarch necessary.

Big Service in Winnipeg.
Winnipeg, May 10.���The members
of the ministerial association plan to
make the Winnipeg union memoiial
service in honor of the dead king
worthy of the life work of the departed ruler and as the royal body
is being borne in state to Its last
resting place all Winnipeg will participate in the service which is now
being arranged.
The horse show auditorium has |
been suggested for the service but
it is thought that it may not prove
large enough and if weather conditions are favorable the affair will
j likely be out of doors. If the plans
; wtu'-h are now being consideied are
carried out tbe service will be a semi-
i military one.
Military  to  Attend.
The   committee   In   charge   desires
! the   soldiers,   the   school   cadets   and
'every   military   body   in   the   city   to
attend, and it has also heen suggested
I that   the   different   lodges   also   takj
part.
The school children who are not
members of the cadets will also be
asked  to  attend.
The memoiial service itself will be
of  a  simple   nature  and  will   be  arranged so that  people of every race |
und cree.i will be able to take part.
Short addresses on the life work of
the king will likely be made by several of tlle clergy present and there
will be a musical program in keeping
with the occasion.
Masons Will Hold Session.
I The Masons of the province pf
Manitoba will honor the memory of
King Edward on the day of the
funeral by a special session of the
grand lodge of the province, wliich
will convene in Winnipeg on that
date.
The exact  nature of the ceremony
! wliich the grand lodge will take part
I in lias not yet been arranged, but it
I will   be   of   a   simple   nature   und   in
keeping   with   the   principles   of   the
order.    A  large attendance is expect-
i ed and the ceremony will be one of
the most impressive ever held by the
Masons of the west.
London, May 10.��� King George V.
has been proclaimed and flags fly once
again at full mast. High politicians
arc contemplating the next steps in
the constitutional   crisis.
The Dally News, speaking as a ministerial paper, assumes thai the position is unalterable by the change of a
sovereign, but opposition journals like
The Morning Post declare il is impossible to believe that ministers or
ex-ministers wil] tolerate the budJi -
tion of the new king on the threshold
of ins reign to worries inseparable
from the constitutional struggle which
clouded the last weeks ol King Edward's life. Hence the suggestion,
which many leading men on both
sides support, for an armistice on constitutional questions tor the present
year and the devotion of the remainder of the session to the budget of
: 1909 and the settlement of the civil
list.
Because of daily conferences between King Edward and his son on
public affairs, King George is expected to use his influence, as his father
would have done, to secure a compromise on the veto by which the lords
would accept the abolition of their
finance veto after a general election
[or referendum, and accept a limitation of terms of parliament, like to
five years.
At  present  the public  is  certainly
opposed, and  so are the business in-
| terests of the people, to another early
general  election  or  unnecessary  prolongation of the poltical crisis.
William MacKenzie says: "The
death of our beloved sovereign deeply
moved every Canadian, lt is impossible to measure the loyal and affectionate regard in which King Edward
was hell  throughout the  Dominion."
DESERTED   HER   SHIP.
Montreal. May 10.���Miss II. E. Lewis, stewardess on the steamer Do-1
minion, and Fred Burns, passenger
on the same boat, became such fast
friends on the voyage that the young |
lady deserted her ship on its arrival
to share her lot with the young man.
N'o trace of the couple can be found.
But if the officers of the law lay hands
on Miss Lewis, or .Mrs. Fro 1 Bums
by this time, they will be privileged,
under the rules of the merchants'
shipping act, to tear her away from
the side of the groom and bring her
back to the daily routine of bedmak-
ing and nursing on the ocean steamship.
SNOWFALL WILL  HELP
FARMERS   OF   ALBERTA
Calgary, May 10.���It is generally
admitted that the snowfall wllich
started early this morning will end
tin the commencement of Alberta's
spring rains, which usually last Intermittently for two weeks. Farmers are jubilant, as the moisture7 resulting from the rapidly melting
snow is all retained in the soil as
now evaporation is not possible. Tlie
wet season is commencing earlier this
year than last, and this fact, coupled
with the remarkable growth that early
sown spring crops have made to date,
must result in a most bountiful harvest. The moisture will result in a
continuation of steam plowing o|. 'rations.

HAN CRUSHED TO DEA1H
UNDER C.P.H. TRAIN WHEELS
Ottawa, May 10.���Development in the
railwaj bell of British Columbia is.
likely to be seriously retarded while
the protection which it was designed
to extend to vested interests, is denied in consequence of the bill by
the minister of the interior. Mr. Oliver, intended to promote the former
and accord the latter, having beet*
forced to be laid over for this session
of parliament through the adoption
by opponents of the measure of thosi"
methods of obstruction peculiarly
available in the closing hours of li.
session.
Under an agreement between the-
Dominion government and the Government of British Columbia, entered!
into at the time of the construction
of the Canadian Pacific railway a strip-
of land twenty miles wide on either
side of the railroad right-of-way. was-,
granted by British Columbia to the
Dominion in consideration of the aid.
given by the Dominion toward tho
securing of the building of the railroad. This is known as the railway
belt of British Columbia.
The land within the belt Is and has
been recognized as Dominion property
and has been administered by the Dominion   government,     but   the   rights
relative   to  water,   irrigation,     water
power, etc., have, until recent times-
been administered by British Columbia under tlie general provincial law-
There has however, always been a.
question as to whether the Provincial
government had  the  right to administer water lights within the railway-
belt.    As evidence of that fact, whenever large interests have been involved,  the  Interested  parties,  after  getting their rights from the Provincial
government, have come to the Dominion  government  and obtained a quit
claim as a means of insuring protection for their capital investment.
Such a question, it had become patent, could not stand without very
seriously retarding development in the
railway belt and with a view to obtaining a definite settlement, the question as to whether the Provincial government or the Dominion government
l had jurisdiction, was raised in a suit
; against the Burrard Power company
| brought in tlie Exchequer court. Tlie
[decision was in favor of the Domin-
I ion government an.l this decision was.
on appeal, sustained by the Supreme
court of Canada.
Although the decision of tlie Exchequer court, rendered in May, 190!),.
was a declaration of the effective law
in the case, no action was taken by
the Dominion government in accordance with the decision until that decision had been sustained by the Supreme court in February last, inasmuch as it reversed existing conditions as to jurisdiction and was itself
liable to be reversed by the Supreme
court.
Although the decision of the Exchequer court bad been ignored for a
tide, it did not seem desirable that
the law laid down by that court
should be further ignored after it had
been confirmed by the Supreme court.
Accordingly, a bill was introduced in
parliament to provide: First, that
transfer of land within the railway
belt by the Dominion, should uot
transfer the water rights, this with a
view to retaining the water rights as
such, to be administered separately
from land rights, which is an established policy of the federal government.
Secondly, the bill was designed to
confirm unconditionally by the authority of the Dominion, the water rights

Ottawa, May 10.���The census and
statstics office issued today its May
bulletin on the condition of crops and
j live stock for Canada. The report
| made at tlie end of April shows that
good progress was made with spring
sowing in Ontario and western provinces, but in Quebec and the Maritime provinces little more than a beginning has been made.
Ontario and Alberta are in the lead
with spring wheat and oats, the former with 89.34 per cent, of the spi ing
wheat "and TL71 per cent, of the oats
in   the   ground   and   the   latter   with
! 97.50 of the wheat and 73.13 of oats.
| Ontario also had 72.IM per cent, of the
I bailey  seeded  and   Alberta  only   111).7
per   cent.     Manitoba  and   Saskatchewan  has  nearly equal  proportions of
the  wheat  land  finished,  the  former
with   !i0.fl8  per  cent,   and   the   latter
with   112.00   per  cent,   but  both   were
slow with oats and barley.

for oats and :i0.17 for barley. Alberta
and Ontario are tlie only provinces
with a substantial showing of fall
wheat and whilst In the flrst named
the condition at the end of April was
1)5.47 per cent.. Alberta showed considerable loss by winter killing, a
rough proportion of the areas sown
being 27.40 per cent., as compared
with 0.42 per cent, in Ontario.
The hay and clover meadows suffered by winter killing 12.80 per cent,
in British Columbia and 11.65 per
cent, in Quebec, but in all the other
provinces the loss was comparatively
slight. The condition of these crops
I was good in the provinces, ranging
from 81.85 in Quebec to 102. in Prince
Edward   Island.
An excellent report was made for
all classes of live stock, their condition for.��all Canada until the end of
April, compared with a standard, being 94.45 for horses, 91.09 for milch
cows, 89.59 for other cattle, 93:70 for
sheep, and 95.10 for swine.

'     John     Humble,    of    the    National

attend   the   Methodist   conference  in
Nelson.
A  fatal  accident  happened on  yesterday morning's westbound C. P. It.'
train   at   North   Bend,   Herman   Fors-
gren, of Qrlsbach, Umeao, Westerba-
den, Sweden, being the victim.   Fors-
gren,  In  company  with many of the
passengers had  left  the train to obtain  some refreshment at  the  lunch
counter, some little distance from the
depot.    When the train btarted Fors-
gren   was   still   eating.     He   made   a
rush for his coach, but failed to grasp
the   step   rail   and   fell   against   tlie
1 body of  the  coach,  being  drawn  under the wheels and horribly mutilated,
j The   train   was   Immediately   stopped

countrymen, Immigrants like himself.
The body will be shipped to Tacoma
for   interment.
Tlie absence of any system of notifying passengers at lunch stations

AMERICANS FLOCKING
TO CENTRAL ALBERTA
Surveyors Cannot Classify Land Fast
Enough to Satisfy  Newcomers in
Irrigation  Belt.
Calgary, May 10.���The large staff of
surveyors now classifying the Bow
valley land in the eastern section of
the C. P. R. irrigation belt cannot
meet the demands of Americans desiring Alberta's irrigable farms and
it is has become necessary to instruct
sales agents to confine their efforts
to the sale of non-irrigable areas until such time as the surveyors have
had an opportunity of completing the
classification.
As a result the Americans are?
flocking into Central Alberta and se^-
curing non-irrigable holdings as fast
as salesmen can be secured to show
the same. Large tracts of Irrigable-
land will be available in the Bow
valley by the fall and hundreds of*
unexce'.lent combination farms made
available for immediate settlement-   .

Spokane,    May    10.���John    Smith,
known by everybody in the mountains
as "Speedy" Smith, a poultry farmer
on 1'lacer Creek, in the heart of the
Coeur d'Alene mining district in Northern Idaho, has stationed several
talking parrots ns policemen on his
ranch to drive off hawks and mountain rats, and raids on bis pens are
now things of the past. The parrots
take kindly to the work and by their
screeching they have forced the birds
of prey and rodents to give the ranch
a wide berth. The rats were the
worst pests and their raids cost Smith
hundreds of dollars.
Since placing the parrots in the
chicken yards and pens, not a hawk or
a rat has been seen and Smith believes he has solved a problem that
has given farmers in the mountain
districts much concern during the past
five years. Farmers in other parts
of the district say they will try the
plan.

Some of our shrewd clients
are beginning to feel that outside property is now nearly
as high as it is worth. They say-
that   the   old   stock   exchange
��� axiom is good which says "Sell
��� when everyone wants them;
buy when no one wants them."
They have figured out that they
have done pretty well by real
estate and are now buying
mortgages. They say that seven
to eight per cent, is good for
such high class, gilt edged security���in fact there ls no security better than a mortgage
on improved real estate which
has withstood all the scrutiny
given morgages which passes
through our hands. Thoy feel
that with such mortgages
they can sleep pretty comfort-
ably���no anxiety as to a possible drop In value.
If real estate has done well
for you, or lf you are for any
reason looking for the greatest security In investment, It
will pay you to see us and
talk over the matter. Our
knowledge Is at your disposal

tie the question.
on in .mil rn the bill it was ui ��� d
that the conditions now existing are
seriouslj leti Imental as related to the
aiians oi the large vi si. i Interests
while development is greatly retarded
bj lack of confidence due to the unsettled  condition  Of  affairs.
It was further urged on behalf ol
the bill that it was a measure for securing capital Invested within tho railway  bolt during  the  period  between
j the disarrangement of previous conditions by  the decision  of tlie Excheq-
I uer court and the ultimate settlement
by  the  final  decision  of  the  Privy
I council   and   was   not   intended   to   affect in any way existing rights or tlie
; result   of   the   decison   of   the   Prlvj

I     A   lengthy    discussion    ensued    in
! wliich   the  plea  of   lack   of   time   for
1 proper consideration was made and as
la concession the bill was ordered to
I stand over to  Monday, the second of
j May.    When  consideration  was    re-
I sinned  on  Monday,  it   was noticeable
that some of tho members who pleaded  strongly  for  delay   in   order  that
there might be more mature consideration, were not present, among them
being  Mr.  Doherty, the  new  Quebec
lieutenant  of  the   leader  of  the   Opposition.
Conservative members representing
constituencies included in the railway
belt, took little part in the discnsslon,
the brunt of the opposition to the bill
being borne by Mr. Lancaster, Conservative member for Lincoln, ami
Messrs, Guthrie and McDonald, Liberal members for South Wellington
and Plctou, respectively.
Although the opponents of the
measure had little support from the
house at large, It was so near lhe
(dose of the Bession tbat it became
evident after two hours consideration
that, having regard for other matters,
it would In' impossible to push the
bill through this session and further

as 2850 B. C. the Egypt
ians were struggling With these suunj
knotty questions.
Dr. ,loines ,|. Walsh of Fordham university, told about it, recently when he
read a series of copybook maxims
taken from an anclenl papyrus manuscript before a gathering of the parish
school and teachers in the Roman
j Catholic liiuli schools
On the manuscript appeared the
Mots and correction.; made bj pupils
of that time. Tne pap;, rus, the f peak
i r explained, had been uneai t bed In a
tomb of some Btudious Pharoh, near
Memphis. Egypt. Here tire some of
the maxims ihat schoolboys wei ���
taught about  sei van! i;
"Satisfy the Iii, her servants of
such things thai thou hast. It i. the
duly of one tavore I of God, In Booth,
thou shalt find it hard to satisfy thy
servant de ipite thy ancient d< sire,
for If thou i>e harsh with thorn, they
shall say, "He is a cruel mast< r; lo!
wi   shall  rn."
"Even though thou give princely
gifts or gold rn precious stones, t.>
thy ; ervants, content is nol In them,
fur they shall Bay, 'Lo! the master Is
suddenly grown gracious. We shall
go."
"And I say unto you, yield to thy
higher servants as becomes one favored of God, for peace is not in that
town where dwells one wretched servant."
As to fashions this sa.e advice is
offered:
"If wise, provide for thy house and
wife as hest thou maysl. Get her what
she desires to cut. and buy for her
such apparel as she desires to wear,
for in that way alone you can find
i happiness."

There has been no show in many
years just like "The Gingerbread
Man." the musical comedy fantasia
by Frederic Ran ken and A. Baldwin
Sloane that comes to the Opera house
Wednesday, May 11. And just he-
cause it ls so different accounts for
Its universal endorsement by press
and public. It appeals to all ages, and
all classes of intelligence. for iis
chief characters are or have been
friends of all. The bringing to life
of old time nursery friends, Ki Is
Krlngle, Simple Simon, Margery Daw,
Wondrous Wis,- and the rest, is iu Itself delightful, but add to these the
gorgeously picturesque costuming,
the ensemble dancing, the (daisy.
catchj music, and the bright, spirited,
humorous dialogue, story and situation, and one finds a combination Irresistible. Then too "The Gingerbread
Man" has one of the strongest casts
ever sent on tour. Such a collection
nf players as Wally Ilelstotl, Rose
Murray. Garriek Major, IleTen Keers,
Hoss Snow, Lute Vrohman. Inez Gi-
rard, Fred Holmes. Beatrice Singer,
Alberta Britton, James Clay, are infrequently found  in a single cast.

i a goo 1 li mi for Un   right and
an- pn paring to do some more fight-
ii ������ .ii the missionary congress at
tin    au.litoi i'lin.
ii is a gathering of men who have
di ,-oti d years to the Bpread of Christianity, and are simply comparing
n ite in order iii determine the besl
waj in which in still further spread
it.
Everywhere among the sea of faces
oni oi ai e un ii who ha\ ( done some
thing which entails toll, sickness and
hardship. They arc men ol almost
'��� ' ( in Istion domination gathere I
und : one banner, "The Church of
Christ Militant." They are putting
aside factional feeling, prejudice, dogmas and doctrinal dissension. They
are together for the purpose of getting
closer to greater and working In harmony and unity in the one great
cause, which is the foundation stone
of all.
Last night one of the principal
speakers was George Sherwood Eddy,
a graduate of Yale, who not only sup-
poris himself on his own money as he
works in India, but gives half of his
money to the cause of missions to
boot.
"All Asia is awakening," said Mr.
Eddy. "There is a great unrest
throughout that continent. While this
has been partially caused by the partition of Bengal and Japan's victory
over Russia, the real cause lies deeper. That cause is found in tlie conflict of the new civilization with the
old.
"The different nations of Asia are
dissatisfied with the old order, both
political and religious. It is an awakening involving the reaction of Christianity upon the non-Christian religions.
"While it is true that India with
her iron-bound caste systems and her
subtle philosophy, present the most
difficult problem for Christianity in
Asia, nevertheless, the empire is becoming christianized.
"During the last decade, the population has increased 2 1-2 per cent.
The Parsees have gained 4 per cent,
the Jews 6 per cent, the Mohammedans R per cent, while the Protestant
Christians increased r,. per cent���
more than twenty as fast as the population.
"Tlie great mass meetings of India
are full of encouragement, More than
half a million persons have been gathered in from the outcasts of India.
Fifty million people more of this class
are waiting at the doors of the church
today for us to uplift them. The
mass movement, however, is occurring
not only among the outcasts hut also
among the middle classes, the great
backbone of India, and to higher
classes.
"Greater still is the effect of this
crack like the old temples that are
awakening outside of the Christian
church. It is resulting in a new ideal
of life. The changeless life of contemplation is giving place to one of
activity, to one of self-reliance, of progress. There Is new national consciousness, a new patriotism sweeping
ov<������"  the  country.
"There is a new demand for reform, a new attitude toward woman.
The old caste system is beginning to
crumbling.
"Recently, there met together 30
Brahmans, 30 Mohammedans and 30
Christians to discuss the new national
unity. They are together. Five years
ago it would have been impossible. It
would have meant the loss of caste.
In addition, there is a new desire for
education.
"Best of all. there Is a new attitude
toward religion. The Brahmans have
taken over from us the ideas of the
brotherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. They are making a desperate effort to regalvanlze Hindoo-
ism.
"Asia is awakening. From Japan to
India, from Korea to Persia, and from
China to Turkey, all Asia is awakening. More can be done toward carrying Christ to these people m the next
tive years than in the fifty years following. The churcn must seize the
opportunity or pay dearly for its delay-" ,. ,
William R. Hotchkiss, who had
spent fourteen years in Africa, tells
how once when the natives, led on by
the fetish priests, had tried to starve
him, he went out with a rifle and killed a rhinoceros wliich had terrorized
the whole neighborhood, and was at
once deluge! with food. He started a
mission on the spot, and was received
because he had done something their
own priests could not do.
Peter Cartwright, Methodist Episcopal missionary to Mexico for seventeen years, says he was raised in the
Roman Catholic church; lived with a
Presbyterian elder, attended an Episcopal Sunday school, was converted in
a Congregational church by a Baptist
preacher, and became a Methodist.
Clifford G. Cress was stricken with
fever in Africa and while he lay in
dellrum his wife died and was buried
there. J. P. McNaughton was in
Constantinople during both Turkish
revolutions when a Christian's life
w is hardly worth a pinch of snuff
sometimes.
Hut to tell of all these who have
done heroic, work in foreign lands,
who have risked their lives as often
as many of the greatest soldiers of
history, would be almost a roster of
the missionaries who are at the congress.

leaps and bounds. The figures for the
fiscal year ending March, reached the
record of $677,142,189. This is an increase of no less than $117,506,238
over the figures for the previous year,
or over twenty per cent.
It is more than $2(1,000,000 over the
highest previous figures of 1007-8. At
the present time the monthly increases of trade amount to $10,000,000
;v month over the corresponding period last year.
The teial imports for the year were
$375,783,663, an increase of $77,659,-
SG8 over 1008-H. Export of domestic
products totalled $279,211,527, an increase of $36,607,951 for the same period.
Exports of foreign products totalled
322,1-16.1102. an increase of $3,238,410.
The chief items of export for the year,
with comparative figures are as follows:

J. P. MORGAN  FAILS TO
GET   ART   COLLECTION
London, May hi.���It. is said that .1.
i P. Morgan is extremely disappointed
over llis inability to acquire the famous Gardner colllectlon of Id.immi
prints and drawings, showing London
in (very phase of its existence. He
now has longing eyes on two other art
collections which shortly are to come
Into the   market.
The Gardner collection, wliich is literally worth its weight i.n gold, was
purchased by Maj. Edward Coates,
M.I'., who is building a special gallery
for il out, of rubber, in wliich commodity the major recently made his
fortune. The pictures are of great
educational value and of invaluable
use to antiquaries. Housed in tlie
heart of Kent, permission to see them
will bo given grudgingly.

The total duty collected for the year
amounted to $61,010,489, an increase
Ol $12,969,475.
The total trade for the month of
March last was $66,564,208, an increase of $12,969,475 over last year.
Imports for March were $43,391,991
an increase of about $10,000,000 over
the same month last year.
Exports of domestic products for
March totalled $22,199,275, as compared with $18,397,974 in March of
last year.
This unprecedented prosperity under tlie Laurier administration is the
best evidence possible that the people
do not desire or require nay change
in government. Everything points to
the current year's total trade reaching the eight hundred million dollar
mark, and the total revenue will not
Le far short of $110,000,000.
It too the Conservative government
eighteen years to increase tlie total
trade $66,000,000. Compare this with
Jast year's increase of $117,000,000.
In other words under the present government total trade increased nearly
double in one year, over amount of
Increase secured by the Conservatives
in eighteen eyars.

TO LIMIT COMBINES.
Hon. W. L. MacKenzie King, minis-
/cer of labor, has put through his bill
dealing with combines, trusts and
mergers. It provides for prompt investigation without expense, to the
victims of combines, limiting production or supply. Any six persons may-
put the law in motion by applying to
a judge of the high court, declaring
their belief in tlie existence of an injurious combine, and asking for an investigation. If the judge decides a
case has been made out he will order
an investigation. No one personally
interested can be appointed to a board
of Investigation. Trade unions are
exempted from the operations of the
act.
The act.has a very general application because it protects both the producer anl the consumer.    It protects
.the consumer against enhanced prices,
and protects the producer from the
lowering of prices by the    operation
. of  a combine.    It   will   be    well   re-
.ceived by the people.
WILL ALL BECOME LIBERALS.
The thousands of Americans who
have decided to make their homes in
(the West will ally themselves to one
political party or the other, and every
reason exists why their support should
Le given to the government which
opened up the great West, provided
transportation, school accommodation,
and preserves law and order. These
men will feel they owe a debt of gratitude to the Liberal government, and
the very best political move that cond
be made, is the proposed western tour
of the Premier and his coleagues.

Americans Quit in Disgust
Owing to Opposition of
Police Officials.
Berlin, May 10.���Several prominent
American boxing promoters who came
here with the Idea of hoi.liny boxing
contests left the capital of the fatherland disgusted with their experiences,
They found that boxing, as known
in America, is absolutely prohibited
by the police. The Hermans look upon the Bporl as hai hai our and only
tit for the lowest of the low. The
police believe thai once the people
get a knowledge of boxing there would
be many more cases of brawling and
|fighting in the sin.ets. Nowadays,
half a dozen police can charge and
maltroal an assembly of perhaps a
thousand Socialists without suffering
or retaliation.
Notwithstanding loud protests from
various quarters against Wotting the
fair name of Berlin, an exhibition in
the presence of the police was pulled
<iff. The police .ave strict injunction
to the competitors not to hit hard.
Any one delivering a blow stretching
' out an opponent on the floor, was ini-
mediately disqualified.
A   sort   of   thrill   of horror   passed
over the large audience of fashionably-
dressed   women   and   brilliantly   uni-
: formed officers and  business men  as
Mho first two middlewei. hts started in
1 last night's  performance.    The fighters  fought  to music  rendered  hy  an
! orchestra,   and   took   their   footwork
time   from   the     conductor     himself,
bouts  were  fought and  blood  drawn
but    once,     resulting    in     cries    of
"shame."

among the poor, is shown by statistics of infant mortality, gathered by
physicians of the free out-door maternity clinic here. Tlie figures demonstrate, in the opinion of the physicians, that the children of foreign parents aie mine hardy than those of
native Americans and that the reduction in infant mortality in reci ni
years is largely due to the influx of
a foreign population,

ONTARIO   COAL   FIELDS
ARE   TO   BE   EXPLORED
Toronto, May lu.���Following a conference with Premier Whitney at noon
today,  Mr. .1.  L.   En jlehart, chairman
of  the  Temiskaming    ami    Northern
Ontario     Railway    commission,     an-
I nounced that next week a party would
be  sent  out   by  the    commission    to
make   a   thorough   investigation   into
, the  recent   finds   of  Metagami   river.
They will be provided with the most
modern equipment and will sink several   shafts   in   the   localities   where
1 discoveries were, reported a few weeks
ago.    ln this way it is expected that
definite   information   wiil   be   secured
I not only as to the extent of the coal
i deposits but as to their value from a
I commercial  point of view.    The samples   that   have   reached   the   Department  of   Mines   have  heen   lignite,   n
soft variety of fuel, and have not justified the hope of the presence of coal
that could be used for industrial purposes.
The expedition will in addition
make a survey of tlie country with a
view to the extension of the T. & N.
O. Railway into the district in case
the quality and quantity of the coal
warranits it. The party is prepared for
serious difficulties in reaching their
destination, as there are 27 portages
from the point on the Metagami river,
30 miles west of Cochrane, and 90
miles to the north where the discoveries were reported. They may be
compelled in consequence to take a
diagonal route through a timber covered country.

Politicians Predict That Ministry Will Not Survive the

Paris, May in.���The Briand cabinet
will fall within two weeks after tlie
elections, according to the more pessimistic politicians. There is too
much social unrest, tlie national debl
is getting beyond all control, the legislators are too inclined to shirk
work, the old age pension as passed is
loo unpopular wilh llie masses, the
wherewithal    necessaiv     Io    meet     tlle
pension   is   too   hazy,   and   lastly   tlie
government  is not and never iias been
greatly admired by the labor classes
and noi much more by ihe bourgeol I
and ihe other extreme, the loyalists.
Ii is probaby a slight exaggeration
to say the government will not survive
two weeks after lhe elections, Hut Im
one would he greatly surprised should
il fall al any time. The Slightest disturbance in either tlie Chamber of
Me;,ulies or the Senate causes a swaying and loitering mighty close to coi
lapse. Time and time again correspondents of foreign newspapers, sit-
ting iii the press gallery, have had
their telegraphic bulletins anounclng
tlie fall oi the cabinet all read> written out. addressed, signed aad ready
lor instant  filing.
Over t he budget tiie govemmi nl
reeled like a. drunken man, it sta
ed perilously after the Duez $2,000 ������������'<
embezzlement was announci d. ami j
when some one asked why France
was so far behind Germany in the dirigible line, grave fears were caused
for the moment,
Jules Roche Alarmed.
Jules Roche, an authority on financial subjects, whose voice has been
heard so many time in the Franch parliament,  though   an   admirer   of   the
pit sent political leaders, in speaking
of the present financial status of
France, voiced the gravest concern.

"These   are   only   Increases.     I   am

total   indebtedness   of    France   today
amounts to more than $10,027,000,000.

"The debt of France is  148 per Cl Dt
higher than   that   of   England,     which
amounts to no more than  $6,400,1 .-
000. This is borne on the Bhouldi i s
of 15,000,000 people, whercis the much

000, i English are much richer than
the 39,000,000 Fn nch taken on an individual average.
Evidently there Is gross mismanage-'
ment   of   public   funds,   according   to
Deputy    Roche.      For   continuing    he
sav s:
"In   France,   in  spite   of   the   heavy'
burdens   imposed   by   the   state,   the
departmi nts     and     communes     have
much less local expenditure than In
England,   Our government is central-,
i/.ed  more than   in   England,   so   tho|
local debts of departments and communes   are   musl   less.     Vet   this   has :
been  rapidly  lising  under the present
governmental pressure."
Roche made comparisons with other
countries���the United States, Germany, etc.���to the great disadvantage
of France. These things ought, he
says, "to open the eyes of those who,
for the sake of their Jacobin policy
persist In (dosing them, denying the
most positive material facts and per-
lis, wliich their Improvidence is ac-l
cummulatlng over us and over them." j

Mrs. Humphrey Wind's novel of Canadian life, known in England as "The
'Canadian  Boi n" an l  iii    Canada  as
"Ladj Merton, Colonist," is attracting
���    m   ii: attention in Ottawa because
the   !��� ading   chai acters   i eem   I i  be
di awn fiom thc personal traits and in-
b in the career of Hon.  W. L.
.��� nzie  King,    minister of  labor.
'i ie probability of this is heightened
lie facl  that Mr. King met Mrs.
Ward when some years ago he had a
i       lllng   E illowship   from   Harvard
pvas in England.   Winn she visited Canada on a trip that inspired tlie
��������� '���:��� Mr. King gave a tea for the emi-
:        writer in Ottawa.
The hook is culled "Lady Merton,
1' nist," in Canada in compll ince
with the n luiremenl of the Canadian
i right laws thai books written In
E jland bear a different title in Can-
It deals with a trip over the
i ���   Pacific  railway of a  titled
l      . I  . oman   of   wealth, a   widow,
In i brolin i. a Beml-invalld. They '
i       I in a private cur, and where the
line Is blocked she    meets a    young
Canadian, George  Anderson,    in  tlie
' ���   of the Canadian  Pacific rail
way, who bus all the physical and
mental attributes that a hero should
have in a new country and who eventually saves her brother's life.
George Anderson is a westerner.
Therein the character beurs no similarity to Mr. King, who is from Toronto. Airs. Ward gives Anderson a
piomtr grandfather. Mr. King is a
grandson on his mother's side of William Lyon MacKenzie, who led the revolution of 1S;!7.
The hero of the novel is ahout to
run for parliament, with assurances
of success arising from successfully
averting for the railway company a
strike which would have caused much
financial loss and industrial suffering.
Mr. King got his foothold for a rapid
rise in Canadian public life by settling
a serious coal miners' strike in Lethbrldge. He was then deputy minister
of labor, but. of course, Mrs. Ward
could not follow the simile that far,
as a deputy minister's job is at a desk
in Ottawa, and he could never have
devoted his time, even in a novel, to
conducting a private car party through
the adventures to which several hundred pages are devoted.
An English suitor joins tbe party
car at Winnipeg and is told off by
Mrs. Ward as a foil for the young Canadian, with whom Lady Merton is
beginning to fall in love. As the state
of Mr. King's heart is not bared to
the public it cannot be said what similarity exists in this part of the story.
The inevitable love test is provided
when Mrs. Ward gives George Anderson a thoroughly disreputable father,
who is supposed to be dead, but who
turns up and robs a train just when
the heart theme has reached a critical
point. There is no similarity hpre,
;New for Mr. King is handsomely provided
