I(jua3su  River Banks  First  Although
Not    Best    Known���Energy    Available in Many Cases Inexhaustible.
London, Sept. 17.���The waterfnllr.
of the earth have become the subject
of a conflict which Is yearly increasing In violence. The lovers of nature
wish to preserve the waterfalls In
their original condition as far as possible for all time, while the engineers
and Industrial promoters seek to exploit them as sources of cheap power
for electro-technical purposes. The accomplishment of this object on a
large scale necessarily involves the
total destruction or serious Injury to
the waterfalls, regarded as picturesque additions to the landscapes. -
It is only within recent years that
waterfalls have been considered from
the commercial point of view, but
slncji It has been recognized that the
energy of flowing water In many
cases furnishes a cheap and almost
Inexhaustible substitute for coal,
which Is yearly becoming more costly
and more largely consumed, the great
waterfalls, which as Impediments to
Internal navigation have hitherto been
worse ttian worthless from the viewpoint of social economy, have suddenly become objects of very gfeat value.
Use for Commerce.
The falling water drives the turbines of electrical power stations,
producing electric light ami power,
which In many cases are transmitted
over hundreds and even thousands of
miles. The war -over waterfalls
which is now being waged by the
friends of nature and the promoters
of Industry Is likely soon to Increase
greatly In bitterness, for many celebrated falls have already been destroyed or at least have suffered aesthetic Injury from the establishment
of i>ower stations.
The famous falls of the Rhine   at
Sehaffhausen are at present the subject  of  heated  controversy.    Several '
power stations already stand on their ;
banks and sup their llie blood.    The j
Swiss   governnvnt,   however,     takes
care to  preserve a  sufficiently  large i
volume   of   wau-r   to   maintain     the
character  of  the  falls  as  a notable
spectable  and  an attraction  to  tour-
150,000 horse power, less than one
two-hundredth part of the whole, and
the plans for the future development
of the station Involve r.o annihilation
ol the falls. The Bl ltish government
and the colonists know very well that
the Victoria falls, which since 1905
have been easily reached by the Cape
to Cairo railway, which crosses the
Zambesi Immediately In front of the
principal fall, will certainly bring as
much money Into the country by attracting tourists as by producing
electrical power.
The Zambesi.
Tliere Is no other waterfall ln tho
world which is at all comparable in
greatness with the Zambesi, Iguassa
or Niagara. Asia, notwithstanding ..*'
colossal mountain ranges, is comparative ly poor ln large waterfalls, which
are found most abundantly In Africa
and North America. The largest African streams are interrupted by many
falls of considerable height. The Congo hns several high falls whicn, owing to the great volume of the river,
about sixteen times that of tbe Nile,
may be counted among the most Important sources of water power on
The Stanley Falls, ln the middle
reach of the river, consist of seven
successive falls, of a total height of
164 feet and a width of nearly 4,000
feet, and offer an exceedingly rich
source of power, which probably will
soon be exploited. Still more Important Is the total water power
which the Congo develops ln the non-
navigable section extending from Its
mouth to Stanley pool. Here the river, confined In a channel only a few
hundred yards wide, and with a depth
of water of nearly 300 feet, flows with
a velocity of 48 feet a second, bo
that at every point of the stream
25,000 to 30,000 cubic met'-rs, or about
a million cubic feet of water, are
hurled along with irresistible force,
while thlrtty-two rapids and waterfalls lower the level of the stream
by 820 feet ln a stretch of 170 miles.
The Lower Nile.
The lower Nile ln Egypt possesses
a series of rapids, the celebrated cataracts of the Nils, but no waterfall
In the strict sense of the word. True
waterfalls occur on the upper Nile,
the most beautiful of them at the
point where the stream issues from
I^ake Nyan/.a. This Itipon fall Is only
a few yards In height, but the volume
of water ls so great that lt presents
a  magnificent  siectacle.
Comparatively few persons know
which is the highest waterfall in Europe. The most voluminous of European waterfalls, strictly so called, are
the Rhine falls at Sehaffhausen, but
the highest are the RJul.cn falls of
the Maan-Elf river, In the Norwegian
Ists,  writes  Dr.  Richard  Herring    In   _
Hebe- Land und Mer A still OHM* I province of Telemarket. *TKS princl
bitter strife ba3 been engendered in ,)al falls is 800 feet high and the to-
America by the ciuestlon of the pres- tal height of the two chief falls with
en atlon or destruction of ths falls the Intervening rapids amounts to
of Niagara. These famous falls have , i x.'iT feet, while the average flow of
already   narowly   escaped   entire   ab- | water   is   50   cubic   meters,   or   1,700
sorption in the pipes of power stations, and very energetic action on
ti:e part of lawmakers both In the
Dnited States and Canada has been
required to keep Intact from In lus-
trial Invasion and preserve in its original beauty at least a remnant of this
great wonder of the world.
The  Yoiemlte  Falle.
Another North American waterfall
which, as tbe highest fulls tn thu
whole world, disserves preservation
as a natural monument, ls apparently
assured against destruction for all
time. Tbis Is the Yosemite fall, In
California, which makes a descent of
1,600 feet in three successive stages.
As the whole Yoseinltc valley, which
was not dlsco\ered until lSiil, was
made a national park In isci. the
falls are under governmental protection, and their pristine beauty can
never be marred by the establishment
of any  power station.
There is a popular but erroneous
Impression that the falls of Niagara
are the greatest in the world, and
even those more enlightened persons
who know that the Victoria falls of
the Zambesi river in Africa ore twice
as broad and more than twice as high
cubic feet.
Doubtless those Europeans who so?
American women chiefly abroad on
their holidays would be surprised to
Imar the comments of two r<'preEen-
tatlve American women on heaving
'.the liberty of American women mentioned. One said. "They haven't any"
and  the other,  "Thev  have only  one jest  In  domestic  economy

sbe is each of these, and the demand
upon her frequently Is that she be
all simultaneously.
This drudgery of the American
woman which grows out of the instability of service and the publicity
of our homo life ls aggravated again
by our total lack of simple and
wholesome pleasures. One remembers
how Germans, conde-mned to city life
before they could have a country
home, bought the land and turned it
Into a garden where father and mother and children repaired on warm afternoons to tend the garden, build
an arbor or drink coffee and eat cake
in the open. Then Germany offers a
multiplicity of open-air concerts and
the men kow as much about music
and love It as passionately as tho
wives or children. The total separation of the tastes of the sexes Is nowhere bo marked as ln America. Indeed, lt Ib most Interesting to see in
American gatherings, excepting such
as are formed for young folk of marriageable ape, how natural and instinctive is the clustering of the women In one corner for one kind of
talk. There Is no doubt about lt.
whatever men marry for, women mr-
ry for companionship, and the American woman gets less companionship
from her husband than any woman in
ihe civilized world. He has business
Interests' to the exclusion of any artistic or Intellectual interests. We professionalize the whole of life. If a
man's life interest be art or literature
he only wants to speak of his pursuit')
with professionals. or he Is embarrassed and afraid he will be accused of talking "shop." So the habit of conversation Ib dying out and
the art of conversation Ib long since
When one adds to this fact that tho
middle-class American woman is the
most heavily convention-ridden woman on the face of the earth, one begins to see that her vaunted liberty
is, after all, a mati-?r of slight scope.
If she travels, It Is largely to escape
the breakdown of prolonged and unbroken drudgery. The freedom, varied pursuits and wide horizon of the
English woman's life is a paradise
comptared with the American woman's
Imprisonment In a difficult and unstable household, in which she is the
vicailotis sacrifice for every one else's
delinquencies and  disabilities.
The natural thirst for life makes
her break bonds sometimes and Bcnd^
her ofT for new experiences, new
knowledre. new atmosphere. She
takes a rest from her home instead
of a holiday ending in the happy return to the settled refuge. We Americans have a heavy task ahead of us

The Pathan steamed through the

soon after passing Gibraltar. As she
pitched and rolled, the crate containing the orang-outang was thrown
across the hold and smashed. The anthropoid found himself at liberty.
More silently than ever moved human assassin, the great monkey crept
to the deck, where the purser was
standing. Stealing up behind him the
ape sprang on  hlm.

for the opinions expressed *>y\tyf eor'
Four  insursnce  companies that  paid
San Francisco losses, although they
had an earthquake clause In   their
policies: the German American and
German Alliance of  New York, the
Phoenix   snd   Protector   Underwriters of Hartford, leading American
companies that made good.
The   story   of Insurance and    the
I storv cf San Francisco are Indlssolu-
i bly 'linked,  and  it  Is  impossible    to
1 mention  nre insurance  without making the city part of the subject of the
I narrative.    It is to the credit of in-
I suranee  companies  in  general     that
I San Francisco bas so well    survived
ithe terrible ordeal  of  the  visitation
1 by flre.    There aro four notable    instances that should never be allowed
l to pass out  of tho memory of    tho
'business man of this city and of the
countrv at large. Theso are the four
I companies   who  although   possessing
a  clause  in  their  policies  providing
i for non-payment of losses ln case of
I earthquake,  did  not  take  advantage
| of  the   fact,   and   pnld   their   losses,
nearly  six  million  dollars,  when  all
I other companies denied  liability  under Buch a contract.   The money was
promptly paid,  while on every hand
! other companies were denying liabll-
I Ity and saving millions to their stockholders at the expense of th* policyholders ln San Francisco!
!    This policy on the part of the com-
I panles  named  Is  In   perfect  keeping
I with the polloy adopted long ago and
' carried ont for over balf a century. It
I is quite clear tbat the people appre-
| elate this liberality, and the general
I popularity   of   these   companies     all
over the country is proof of the fact.
The payment of the San Francisco
losses  only  exhausted  about  twenty
per cent of their assets, Thla ls the
very best evidence of the strength of
I these  concerns.    Policies are  issued
i with an eye to future losses, and with
the  view of making  good  whenever
called upon.   Their policies have always been and  always  will  be conflagration proof.    This and the facts
given  above  should  be  studied  over
carefully by the public when select-
j ing Insurance.  The  News-Letter rec-
rflP      PpFCrilTl ommends these American companies

Will    Have    Wrestling    and    Boxing
Tournament Friday, October 6,
When Many Clubs Meet.
Captain Tom Cunningham and his
merry henchmen of the 104th Kegl-
niental Amateur Athletic association
have not taken long to find their feet
lu the local sporting world, and at a
meeting which was held yesterlay
evening and which filled tho spacious
mess room to Its capacity, the athletic Tommies hailed with delight the
coming of I ho winter months when
football, basketball, boxing and wrestling would all help to provide hours
of innocent amusement and pass
away the long evenings In the armor
ies on Sixth street.
It was felt as the K. A. A I. society
bud apparently decided to turn down
the suggested amateur boxing and
wreKtllng program which had been
drawn up, that lt was up to the
<luly registered and affiliated amateur
club to provide good, clean, honest
sport for the crowds of visitors who
would be In the city during the exhibition week. With this view the
members heartily agreed and a committee consisting of Colot Sergeant
droves, Sergeant Burnett and Private
Hunter was elected to assist the
���executive In carrying out the arrangements for a Joint amateur wrest-
llng and boxing tournament in the
armories on the evening of Friday.
October 6. On that occasion, the
regiment purpose holding the flrst of
a series of inter-company wrestling
and boxing champlonsnlps and Invitations will be extended to Victoria,
Vancouver and ChiUlwack, while star
performers on the mat and in the ring
will lie present from the V. A. C,
Vancouver, and Bellingham, ther team
from the latter Including Stearn. the
136 pound lad who gained th? decision
over Ernest Barrieau, the Paciflc
coast champion, two weeks ago In the
Terminal City.
The meeting decided tn become
affiliated with the Paciflc Coast A. A.
A. and to thU end a telegram was despatched to the secretary at Portland apprising that official of the
wish of the Westminster club. In
their application the soldiers have
the support of the V. A. C. and these
with a representative direct from the
K)4th will speak for the claims of the
Fraser river valley organization at
the annual conference which will be
held in  Seattle this week.
Soccer football will be one or the
association's long suits this season
and Private Hunter, the delegate, n
ported that progress was being made
along the lines of soliciting the team
from Bapperton to rejoin the City
Amateur league. When this has been
accomplished, the 104th with the
eleven from the City Amateur club
would-formulate a schedule. C o or
Sergeant Groves and Privates Hunter
and Little were elected a committee
to work enthusiasm into the old
country members who played soccer
over the briny.
Basketball was a topic which ap-
pealed to the meeting and the battles
to be contested on the well marked
out floor of the armories were eagerly
discussed. Servants Walker Sangster and H. Wiggins with Private H.
Munn will, ns nn executive, handle
the ball games this season, ami although it is yet early to talk out inter-company plans this will be featured while matches against the Columbian college and Y. M. C. A. teams
vil! be arranged.
���\n adjournment was called at a
late hour, until Friday evening next.
The Fitzgerald Transfer.
Percy Quinn, one of the big lacrosee magnates in tbe east, who is at
present on this coast cn business fo
bis employers, asks The Daily News
to deny the report published In the
Terminal City that he is out here in
the search for Billy Fitzgerald, the
well-known Vancouver player, who is
badly wantel by tbe eastern team for
next sensop.
"I would take it as a personal favor If The Dally News would state
that I am not here cn uny business
but that connected with my company's business affairs," said Quinn.
"If Fitzgerald was wanted by the
magnates ln the Kast they could easily get bold of htm without sending
me out on this long journey. 1 did
did not see Fitzgerald until a day after the report waB published, and
then I only spoke to him on general-
Qulnn'a Queer Quest.
Percy Quinn, one of the magnates
of the Toronto Lacrosse club, was a
gumshoer ln the city yesterday morning and while it Is not officially
known that he was on the track of
Doughy Spring and hls younger
brother, Gordon, better known as
Grumpy, indications point that way.
While the going of either or both of
these stickhandlcrs would be a big
blow to the local followers, tho
Springs doubtless know their own
business best and could hardly be
blamed for going to tbe east lf
monetary Inducements are bigger
than ln the Fraser valley city.
Intercity Bowling Match.
Tomorrow evening In the Front
Btreet alleys, Westminster wlll entertain a five man team from the Pender
street' rendezvous of Vancouver.
Uncle Joe Morris, of the Terminal
City, will bring over his strongest
qualntette anl although early in the
season he promises to show that tbe
pill tossers from the larger city are
the real goods. The local magnates
have had the peers of the Front
street rooms In dally practice, and
although the team has not yet been
selected, a strong five will be chosen.
From the habitual players a team
could be picked which would make
tho visitors travel at express speed In
order to stand a chance with the
locals. Play will begin at eight o'clock
and those who desire to witness what
gives promise of being a sterling
game should be on hand at tbat time.

Port Said and Suez _
count of the work of the Menzaleh
Canal and Navigation Co., which was
started in 1004 to dredge a navigable channel across Lake Menzaleh, In
order to establish direct cmmunica-
tion between Port Said and the towns
of the Nile delta on the other side of
the lake via Matarieh and Damietta
instead of allowing th" shipping traffic to pass through Alexandra. The
companv are constructing a passage at Poit Said connecting their
channel with the Suez Canal, and also
a passage communicating with the
Nile south of Damietta. The wort: of
making these extensions is well in
hand, and will probably be completed in April, 1012. The wnterwav
between Mansourab and Port Said
will have a total length of 146 kilometers, whereas the distai.ee by rail
is 226 kilometers, and the distance
from Mnnsoureh to A'exandrla by rail
ls 174 kilometers. The consular report adds:
As the town of Mansourab ls
or the most important centers,
companv anticipates that on the completion of these works a larae portion of the cotton and cotton seed
from Mansourab will he diverted via
thoir route to Port Snld for export instead of being-sent to Alexandria as
at present. The company will as-
then he able to take coal from ship*

effecting a great saving in cost of
transport and avoiding the wastajti
of coal which results each time the
coal is transferred from lighter to

the company's lighters at Mimsnursb
would ariive without further handling alongside ships at Port Said. At

LONDON. Sept. 18���Heroic efforts are being made by the British
admiralty to outclass any other power in the world ln the number and efficiency  of  mai Ine   vesee.a.
The most modem submarines now
being built here, known officially as
the "K" class, displace 800 tons; they
are ln fact, though not in name, small
cruisers, capable of traveling either
on the bui face or under the water.
They are 17ti feet long, with a maximum breadth of 'i'i teet. In the
original tyie of submailne, the speed
both on and under the water was
glow, but as a result cf the cooperation of the admiralty with Messrs.
Vickers 8ons and Maxim, who have
been so largely rcsplble for many of
the Improvements in the design of I
the Biitish boats, both speeds bave
been Increased. The new "E" class
wlll be able to travel on the surfaco
at fifteen knots, while beneath the
surface the rate wlll be cons derably
higher than bas hitherto been attained. '
Heavy Oil Used.
The "E" boats are being given the
most powerful engines ever put into i
submarines, and they are ot a new
type, using heavy oil under conditions
ef absolute safety. There can be no
repetitions of the disastrous gas explosions which occurred in the earlier
There are seventy-five British submarines built or building. The later
ones are such good sea boats that
tbey can make long voyages. One flotilla has recently been dl-patc'ied to
Malta, and the other has Jutt arrived
at Hongkong, a matter of 9,000 miles,
after a stormy passage, during which
the craft were not damaged ani the
daring crews suffered no injury, 'ine
submarine ls now a most valuable naval arm, for use not merely ln coast
defense, but for over-sea operations.
The success already achieved has
given purpose and direction to the efforts to render these amphibious craft
even more de'illsh ln their warlike
qualities. Slowly a ship Is being created, stage by stage, which will render destroyers of the oh' types obsa-
Like Ordinary Cruiser.
The vessels of the "E" class mark
the apotheosis of the submersible
ship. They will have more torpedo
tubes than the craft now in the service, and the torpedoes will be of
far greater capacity, a higher speed
and greater endurance allied with a
far heavier explosive charge.
The   "E"  craft   will     have    decks
some what resembling the decks of ordinary  above-water  vessels;   on    the
decks serviceable guns will be mounted'so ae not to Interfere with the ts.- I
clllty the vessel to travel benwii the l
surface.    In  the  larger  hull Will    be 1
comparatively roomy quarters for the
. crews, with more ample provision of'
compressed air, so as to lengthen-tKe��
| maximum period of submersicn; th:y
will   be  equipped   for  wireless  communication;   and, above all. the new
"E" vessel will be safe as no subma-
ilnes   have   been   before���safe   from
the  danger  of explosion,  and    with
well-tried apparatus to enable officers
and men  to escape in casa of collision.
The "E" class marks a great advance on any vessel hitherto constructed, but no one who has followed the course of development since
the first little ship was built to th-->
design of the Holland company will
doubt that the end cf this chapter of
naval evolution has not been reached.
The displacement today is SOU tons;
in a few years' time it may and probably Will be doubled or trebled. We
may in a comparatively short period see sizeable cruisers eiaipiel so
as  to  cruise  submerged   by day  and

Modern   Joan   of  Arc   Who
Ousted Maude Gonne.
Lady Gregory, tlie heroine of the
Irish literary revivalists, has at last
made up her mind to visit America.
For a considerable time she has been
receiving invitations from lecture'
agents, who felt she would be a money maker on a lecture tour, but ahe
has steadfastly declined to have anything to do with them. She refuses
to have her talents or peisonallty exploited for gain.
But now she has handed herself
over to the Irish Ireland Movement,
and anything she does tn thtt interest will be without fee or reward.
She is going to the l'nited States at
her own expense, and ber lecturing
campaign will be directed' by local
men Interested in the Irish Ireland
Movement. The visit will synchronize with that of the Abbey Theatre
Company of Irish playeis.
Those who have followed closely
the activities of this remarkable woman may be surprised to learn that sue
has, without being such n picturesque
propagandist as Maude Oonne, tak n
the place of the "Irish Joan of Arc"
in the affections of the Irish people.
Save Ireland by Literature.
Lady Gregory believes that Irels n.l
can be saved by the dls emlnat 0:1 if
national literature, tie revival of t e
Irish language and industrial enterprise; while Maude Gotine's idea for
Ireland's salvation was an appeal to
the  battlefield.
The latter has for the time bclnu
dropped out of the act Ivi les of Irish
national life, and Lady Gregory has
the field entirely to herself, so tha;
her lecturing tour in the
States will be followed with
than ordinary inteiest by home-stay -
ing  Irish folk.
When Theodore Roosevelt wat>
President he made no secret of his
admiration for the litrerary dualities
of Lady Gregory. He declared to
Professor Wright of Oxford I'nivir
sity, who was then on a visit to
Washington, that "it was tbrough
reading Lady Gregory's "Cuchulaln
of Muirthemne' and 'Gods and Fight-
lng Men' that my great sympathy fir
Ireland was first awakened." This
generous tribute to her work wah
much appreciated by the authoress,
and when she lands in New York on"
of her first alms wi.l be to have a
chat with the ex-President.
Bight years ago Lady Gregory and
Edward  Martyn, the Galway landlord
who  is   president  of  the'Sinn   Fein
together with W.  B.  Yeats, the Irish
poet   and   foik-Iorlst, decided   to  p;o-
duce plays  written  by themselves In
the  Dublin  theaters,  plays  ln   which
Irish   thought  would  find  expression
but  It  was  suddenly jdiscovered  that
there was an Act of Parliament which
prohibited   these Irish  dramas    from
being produced in any licensed theater in the Irish capital.  With tha cooperation of the late Professor lxseky.
who  was then an M.  P.. Lady Gregory   had   tbe   Act ot   Parliament       �����-

peasant life from the Inside, lor r-lie
has lived among them fiom her childhood, and their loves, sorrows and
joys are freely Interpreted in her
plays. She does not try to conceal
their faults, but stands out bold.y to
criticize them when she thinks s'ic
ought, as she demonstrated tn her defence of the "Playboy of the Wtste.n
World." which provoked kich a storm
of condemnation in Dublin when i
was  produced for the  first time.
Lady Gregory wields a busv anl
versatile pen. Looking over the repertoire of the Abbey theater one finds
her name appended to nummerous
plays, including "The Gaol' Gate'
Spreading the News,' "The Doc or in
Spite of himself" (a translation
from Molierei. "Hyacinth Halvey,"
"The t'anavans," "The White Cockade," "The Rising of the Moon,' the
last named a comedy ln which she
collaborated with Dr. Douglas Hyde,
tlie  famous  Gaelic  scholar and  poei!
even this expenditure may be deemed
to be necessary ln the public interest. But ln the face of these figures
guardians of the public interest may
be Induced to revise their estimates
of what are and what are not public
needs. There Is a lesson in this paragraph for more than New Zealand* rs.
Dominion   Forestry  Department's  Re- i
port. I
Interesting  statistical   comparisons
may be made from  the 1910 lumber
report prepared hy the Dominion Forestry   Department.      Of   the   twenty-
six  native  specie of  wood  which  together were cut in 1910 to the extent
of    4,900.000,000    boaid    feet,   woith
over  $77,000,000, the llrst  nine were
coniferous or soft woods.   Spruce was
the   most   important, alon^   forming
over   one-(iunrter   of   the   total    cut.
Spruce and white pine together formed   barely   one-half  of  (be   1910  cut,
while In the vear previous, these two
up   nearly   thrte-fiftlis
species   made
of the total.
This decrease in proportion Is due
not lo a smaller cut of the two species, but to a very great Increase in
the amount of Douglas fir, hemlock,
���ednr and yellow pine produced In
Hritish  Columbia     Onmuartsr   of
the 1909 cut was formed of these
Tour species, while in 1910 the total
cut of the four was Increased by 70
per cent.
White pine lumber is undergoing a
radual   evolution   In   Its   Importance
the lumber indtist y.    Dp to three
,���._  _        white  pine  stood   at   the
top of the list, when lt was supplanted by spruce, although the actual cut
of the former had not decreased.  The
prediction   of   last   year   that    white
pine had nearly reached its maximum
cut  has  proven  true  this   year,  the
1909  cut   being  decreased  by   4   per

These  Are  Being Forced  in  Sweden
by  Electricity.
There will be no Peter Pan In Sweden shortly. The children will grow
by electricity. Hitherto it had been
found possible to force the growth of
vegetables by means ot electrical
-iimns distributed from a powerful
dynamo. It was accordingly contended that the human organism was
equally susceptible of "expedited
growth," as it has been called
through the practically continuous
application of an electrically charged
atmosphere to that body.

Passenger Traffic Decreases
London, Sept.  18.���It is   generally
anticipated in Transatlantic shipping
circles that the pooling arrangement
which expires on Oct. 31, will be renewed at the resumed conference t<J
be held ln Co'ogne during September
The  movement of passengers during tbe first half of this year did not
realize   expectations,  partly   on   account   of   many   Americans    waiting
untll  later in the year to visit England, thus avoiding the high charges
which   prevailed   during  the   coronation  period.    The decrease,  however,
was general ln all classes, both east-
bound and westbound.   On the routes
to  America  the  total  decrease   was
127,122.    From  Hritish ports  to  Canada, on tbe other hand, there was an
increase  of  20,531.    The  Continental
lines  have been  the chief   sufferers,
thc four leading ones having cai ried
85,843   fewer   passengers   than    they
did for the same period last year.
Under the old agreement these
four companies were entitled to 82

time when there would tie in the Australian   service a  fleet  of  Lusitaniaa,

the points of view of both the build

a  pleasant  enough  dream,  though   1
(says  a  writer in  the  Bhlpplng Gazette)  imagine that the scientific staff

���well   calculated   to  waken   dreamers

standard   of   Lusitania   traffic,   would
probably  be enormous.   I am judging
the   matter,  of   course,   in   the   light
of our  present  knowledge of marine

Amount of Reduction of Duties on Imports of 1910, summarized from Reciprocity Blue Book-���
reduction ry United States  $4,849,933.00
Reduction by Canada $1,412,219.00
Difference h. favor of Canada $3,467,714.00
In proof of the fact that until the last few months the Conservative party of the Dominion of
Canada has, side by side with the Liberals, endeavored to secure to Canada the boon of Reciprocity in Natural Products with the United States, it is well to remember that when Sir John A. Macdonald introduced the National Policy of 1878, one of the reasons urged in favor of iti, adoption    .
was that ii would tend to reciprocal Free Trade in natural products with the United States.
Under the Tariff Act, 1880, embodying he National Polic>, a standing offer was made by
Canada that whenever the United States reduced its duty on these products or made them free
of duty, a corresponding reduction would be made by Canada.

dent yesterday while at work. In
some manner not yet clearly ascertained the unfortunate man slipped
and fell a matter of a few feet to the

struck with some force on the upturned point of a peevy. This penetrated the Jugular vein and in a few
moments Smith bled to death. An

as further evidence has to be called
no verdict hns yet been arrived at.
