The Order of the Hospital of St.
John of Jerusalem dates back to the
year 1118 when Baldwin II., the then
Latin king ot Jerusalem, conferred
the character of a military knight
hoo-.l upon the order.
The Knights Hospitallers, aa they
were commonly culled, co-operated
for many years with the Knights
Templars in the defence of Jerusalem
and of the floly Land against the
Saracens. In the beginning of the
fourteenth century, the Order of Bt.
John, which had previously been a
cosmopolitan brotherhood embracing
all Christendom, was divided Into the
eight nations of Provence, Auvergne,
France, Italy. Aragon, Caatlle, England and Germany. Under the new
conditions each langue became a
semi-independent body, owing allegiance to the sovereign of the territory
from which it waa derived, and governed by a Grand Prior of Its own

again confiscated in the reign of
Queen Elizabeth, although the charter
was not annulled and the order continued to meet and exercise charity
ln Eecret. ln 1888 Queen Victoria
granted a new charter, giving the
order a status and constitution base:!
upon the former charter of Queen
Mary, thus fully reviving the mediae

as the English order from the time
of Edward II. to Henry VIII.

Los Angeles, Cal., Nov. 17.���The
fourth and fifth Jurors were accepted
and sworn today in the McNamara
murder trial which began- October 11.
These two were secured since November 7, when the first three were
sworn. A feature of the day was
evidence tbat John B. McNamara Is
taking a hand ln the selection of the
Jurors, who are to try hls brother,
James B. McNamara, for the murder
of Charles J. Haggerty. From bis cell
ln the county jail John J. McNamara
sent word that C. A. Heath, being of
English birth, would not be most
suitable, in his opinion, to try an
Irishman, and Heath was removed by
peremptory challenge.
The two new Jurors are J. B. Sex
ton, a ranch man and real estate
dealer from Alhambra, a suburb, and
William Andre, a carpenter and formerly a union man. lie does not now
belong to a union.
Tl)e   Jurors   already   chosen   arc.
Robert Bain, F. D. Green, Byron Lisk.
Within a few minutes after the   new
were   sworn   in,   the   seventh
rje was exhausted and a new one
40 men was drawn.
Four peremptory challenges by the
defence and three by the state trimmed the full Jury box down to five
mere when court opened today. The
state led off by excusing A. Gribling,
a retired walnut grower, who once
had difficulty with the Times management over a subscription premium. It
also excused Wlllett Brunner, a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive
Firemen, and Clark McLaln. a Pasa
dena banker, who said he considered
a knock in the Times as a boost,"
and expressed other unfavorable opinions concerning it.
The defence which alternated its
challenges with the state excused
Brewster C. Kenvon, a capitalist; T.
II. Elliott, a gardner; A. C. Heath, tho
Kngiish farmer, and Jacob Lansling.
Elliott and Lansing both were supposed by the defence to have ev
|.rested their belief that McNamara
was guilty and should be hanged,
Journalist   Gives   Authentic

London, Nov. 17.���In an article lu
the Dally Graphic today Archibald
Colquhoun, well known as a Journalist and explorer, professes to outline the program of the Chinese, on
the authority of leaders of the rebellion. He says the revolutionary
committee has summoned Dr. Sun Yet
Sen, one of the Instigators of thb rebellion, and that he wlll arrive ln
Shanghai to take up the direction of
affairs. The intention is to Introduce
military government under the direction of General Homer Lee, an
American military officer. There will
be a period of three years, or less, of
martial law, during which the administration of reforms will be undertaken. This is to be followed by smother period v>f three years during
which the military government will
be assisted by a certain elected party.
At the expiration of this time It i9
expected the country will be prepared
for constitutional republican government with an elected president. Mr.
Colquhoun says Dr. Sun Yet Sen will
be the flrst president.

The vanguard or delegates to tbc

Flagstaff, Ariz., Nov. 17.���The following statement' was issued from
the Lowell observatory today, giving
supplementary information regarding
'the recent'announcement by Professor Percival Lowell that he had discovered frost on Mars.
Frost has been observed on Mars
by all observers here for a fortnight.
Two hundred photographic images of
the planet have been taken botb with
the 24-inch reflector and the 40-lnch
reflector and all show lt very prom
On November 14 measures and
photographs were made of it at the
Lowell observatory at Intervals all
the way from 110 degrees to 214 degrees, ln all of which lt appeared on
the sun rise edge of the planet never
advancing detachedly upon the disc
and thus proving conclusively that it
was something melting under tho
sun's rays.
Thc idea that the polar caps ot
Mars and their attendant phenomena
are due to carbon dioxide is an old
suggestion broached long since 'ty
persons not sufficiently acquainted
with chemistry to recognize its ln
applicability to Mars.
Dr. Lowell disproved this many
years ago. The proof consists ln the
fact that under pressure of one at
mosphere or less carbon dioxide
evaporates without melting, while the
blue band that borders the polar caps
of Mars as tbey contract proves that
they melt before evaporating.
All the other phenomena, confirm
this by being inconsistent with a
temperature so low as carbon dioxide
to be solid would ie<iulre. Water
vapor and oxygen have shown their
presence in Dr. Slipher's spectograms
of Mars made at the Lowell observatory while carbon dioxide has not.

Panic Stricken.
Berne, Switzerland, Nov. 17.���A
violent earth shock was felt through
out Switzerland at 10:27 o'clock last
night. This was followed by lesser
quakes. The movement was especial
iy strong ln the canyons of Berne
and Zurich, in the district of Inter-
laken and throughout the region ot
the Alps. So far as known there
wero no casualties, in Geneva street
cars were derailed. In this city and
In Zurich theatre audiences were
thrown Into a panic and rushed Into
the streets. At Chamounlx enormous
avalanches rushe.l down Mont Blanc.
The seismic motion was from north
to south.
Berlin, Nov. 17.���The earthquake
shock which was felt last night at
Berne and surrounding territory, did
great damage in portions of the German empire. The castle of Hohenzollern statues were disfigured and
great cracks appeared In the towers.
At Constance, tn the grand duchy
hall, the walls were crumbled and
many valuable paintings and pieces
of statuary ruined. Earthquakes arc
unusual in the districts affected and
the alarm generally was greater than
would have heen the case ln countries
where seismic disturbances are more
At Frankfurt four houses were shat
tered, the people running Into the
streets panic-stricken.
Buildings were toppled over and
crumbled like cinders. Stuttgaart felt
the movement strongly. Houses rocked, pictures fell from the walls and
furniture was tumbleJ about.
Reports from Munich, Strasseburg,
and Mayence ttil of similar experiences.
There was a great panic In tho
theatre at Heidelberg. Near Lautlln-
f.en a railroad viaduct fell in. Several
buildings, including St. Stephen's
church, were damaged at Muethausen
and a large stone was shaken from
the Btceple of the edifice.

Storekeeper   Held   Up   At
Point of Gun.
Sixth   Street,   Main  Thoroughfare  of'
City, Scene of Coolest Criminal
Act Possible.
On one of the main thoroughfares
of this city at a busy time of the
evening a hold-up man was able to
enter a small store, and at the point
of a gun, rob tbe proprietor of all
tbe cash he had. The robber tben
got clear away with the loot Snd no
trace of him has been found.
"You wants da pea nuts," politely
asked Sam Pappas, the Greek, ln hia
little confectionery store at the corner of Sixth and Agnes, to a tall dark
gentleman who walked Into tbe shop
about 9:30 last night.
"Pea nuts nothln', I wanta da mon,
and you fork out quick," replied tbo
tall dark one, at the Eame time levelling a murderous looking revolver at
the head of poor Pappas.
Panpas, like most ot the rest of tba
world, did as he was told, backed up
as tbe bidding was by the bright long
barrel. He handed over all be had
got. There were $25 dollars ot
Thursday's takings and all of yesterday's, totalling to a sum of nearly $50.
Having pocketed the takings the
hold-up man backed out ot the store
and disappeared In the darkness up
the hill.
Chief Bradshaw and one of his
policemen were on the spot within a
very few moments of the bold rob

times of the discussion between Germany, and Fiance over the Moroccan
situation, Brlmin's North sea flee:
wus stretched out each night in a
watchful cordon and Germany and
Britain were both ready to land
troops on French son. This wns the
statement made by Bugene Kelly, a
banker, who has Just arrived from
Europe. Mr. Kelly said tbat few-
persons realized how critical the
sitHOtion was between France and
Germany at the time.
"From an authoritative source���a
naval officer���I was told that for several nights tbo British North sea
fleet was under orders, patrolling thc
waters to-vard Germany," said Mr.
Kelly. "The orficcrs did not know
whether a German fleet was expected
or whether it was all in the way of
prentice, but the orders came and tho
fleet carried out    manoeuvres    every
nisht" ���'   ,., .

Wilfrid Blunt's book. "The Secret
History of the Occupation of Egypt,"
ls admittedly a valuable document on
a question that still has its secrets;
and as much may be said of the continuation of that book, "Gordon at
Khartoum," which Mr. Blunt has Just
issued. The second volume tells us
a good deal about Gordon and about
Khartoum, and a good deal about the
political events and great personages
of the time, but it leaves much untold, lt cannot be said that Mr. Blunt
has supplied the answers to the questions that have been asked so many
times in the past twenty years. Who
was really responsible for sending
Gordon to Khartoum? What were
Gordon's instructions? Ought the relief expedition to have been sent sooner? lt ls still possible for people to
differ on these points, not that there
has been no answer made, but that
there have been many different
answers. Lord Cromer, ln his "Modern Egypt", has much to Bay on some
of these matters. The Duke of Devonshire's biography discusses them,
and so does Mr. Blunt; but rarely do
they coincide on important points.
However, it is interesting to hear
from Mr. Blunt.
As to the character of General Gordon, he agrees with the others. There
is not much    difference   of   opinion
about this remarkable man, and what
Blunt says probably Cromer and Devonshire   would   re-echo:     "Gordon,
therefore carried with him. untouched
into his active life the Uiblcal founds-
Ition of his childhood.    He held    the
text of Scripture from the first verse
��� of Genesis to the last verse of Revelations to be God's written word, and
that  it was given to every man    by-
faith and prayer and constant study
to find in it all necessary directions
for botli liis temporal and his eternal
needs."   Gordon was, in short, one pf
the Old Testament prophets with    a
military  training, and  more than    a
touch of military  genluB.    Tho only
fault Blunt could find ln his character is one that   Gordon   himself   acknowledged, and that few public men
are altogether innocent of.   lt was a
certain tendency to court publicity, to
keep iu the spotlight, and to do the
spectacular, thrilling thing.    It    maybe that this flaw had as much to do
with tlie tragedy of Khartoum as had
the greatness of Gordon's character.
As regards the Egyptian situation,
it was, as Mr. Blunt says, the Crimean situation over again.   Tile govern
ment ln charge was not the government that was responsible for the situation;  Gladstone had no   sympathy
with  British  occupation    and    would
have been glad if it had never taken
place.    Being a fact, however, opinion
differs  as to  what his real  feelings
in   the  matter  were.    It  differs  also
as to whether Gladstone was deceived   by    his    collo&stMsr    Hartiugion
Granville.  Northbrook, and Sir Charles Dilke.    Mr.  Blunt does not hesitate to charge these men with having
conspired agalnat Gladstone to    mislead him. |.numbly at the Instigation
of the Rothsi Uilds, who had many millions at stake in   Egypt,   and   were
shaking in their boots lest the British garrisons should    be    withdrawn
and the country left to the anarchy
that thev felt s-ire would follow.    It
may be sail that the Duke of Devonshire's biography    completely    repudiates tbis suspicion on the part of Mr.
Blunt, and takes the ground that the
prime minister was not deceived    by
his   colleagues.      Whether   Gordon's
temperament or tho situation    itself
made it impossible for    the    general
to accomplish the task set him    remains a question.
According to Mr. Blunt. Gordon was
despatched to Khartoum at the suggestion of Lord Esher, his general ln-
str tctlons being to place himself at
the disposal of Lord Cromer, the Brit
ish Agent, who would give him tie-
tails of the work required ot him.
From Cromer he received orders to
proceed to Khartoum and arrange for
fhe withdrawing of the Egyptian garrisons as rapidly as was consistent
with tbe saving of life, and bo far as
was i ossible, of property; and the
establishment of some rough form of
government tbat would prevent anarchy and confusion on the departure
of the troops. Mr. Blunt Is of opinion that these instructions were con-
Bidered In advance of anything Gordon had heard In England. Both Mr.
Blunt and Lord Cromer seem agreed
thai Gordon had wtd ��� discretionary
powers, and yel the latter makes the
charge that Gordon exceded his pow-
��� i Mr. Blunl b theorj is that the
Rol ischllda and the members of the
cabinet who desired the occupation of
Egypt tn be permanent knew well
that it would be impossible for Gordon to withdraw the troo.'.s. and that
a man of his character, once on the
scene, would provoke soni" such tragedy as (lid in fact follow, and forever sealed the fate of Egypt.
Mr. Blunt, entertaining historian

iriend or Arab!, and bad much sympathy for the Mahdi and the cause

passages from his diary which show

and speaks of the Hritish soldiers as

vokes the Ironic smile', but tickles to
the boisterous laugh. It ls quite true
that most literary humorists are
laughter-makers, and that Dickens
either dissolves people Into uncontrollable hilarity or leaves them cold. The
English have from Chaucer downwards liked their JokeB to be free
from doubt. They are very distrustful of a humorist who keeps tbem In
the dark, and makes them suspect
that he ls laughing to tell the truth
(..What prevents the Jester from
saying a true thing?" as Horace saya).
Does not a certain distrust of Mr.
Bernard Shaw still linger ln the public mind, in spite of his increasing
popularity as a playwright? Yet I
doubt lf their idea of a Joke ls very-
different fro ma foreigner's. The humor or foreign plays is very crude.
Go to a cinema show ln Italy, and
you will notice that the loudest
laughter la always provided when the
film shows someone tumbling down,
or some one pulling an ungry face
or someone being ducked, or having
some equally simple misadventure. It
is possible that European nations do
not see the fun of Jokes at the expense of the noble aims and institutions of the past as the Americans do.
Few English people were moved to
merriment by the spectacle or a
Yankee bagman at the Court of King
Arthur. But even on this point It
would not be safe to generalize. ls
there not a successful play, "When
Knights Were Itold," which ridicules
chivalry us Mark Twain ridiculed it.

So rapid haB been the progress of
wireless telegraphy during the past
few months that the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company, who in July
considered their financial resources
equal to their business requirements,
passed a resolution���but little over
three months from date���to Increase
their capital by a quarter of a million
sterling ln order to cope with the recent extraordinary developments. The
Marconi Company have already Installations in practically every civilized
country. Russia Is at the present moment engaged upon a vast Bcheme for
the development of her communication routes, and bas decided to adopt
the Marconi system for her army,
navy, and post office.

scheme suggested the use of wireless
telegraphy for warning the Indian
coastal provinces of the approach of

The play was "the tragedy of

Winter   Methods   Burying
the Best.
Of all the methods of keeping vegetables for winter use burying them in
the ground is the best. Those put
into cellars will wilt no matter how
they are packed, and this is true also
of fruit, especially apples If potatoes, cabbages, beets antl turnips as
well aa apples are well buried, so as
to be protected from frost, they will
be crisp and firm when taken out.
Jilst go to an apple pit when apples
are being taken out and see how nice
they look and how good they smell.
Apples as well as potatoes will keep
in these pits until late the next
This is for the vegetables for winter use, but there are always some
tomatoes left on the vines when frost
comes. Small heads of cabbage, celery and different things can be put
away for imediate use and will last a
eng time.    The fruit and vegetables
that are buried can be kept for use
later on.
The green tomatoes that are always
caught by the first frost can be gathered us, either before or after, before
is better, and placed in some sunny
spot to ripen. One lady puts her
green tomatoes in her hct bed ln the
fall. Here they ripen a few at a time
und she has tomatoes sometimes as
late as the last of October.
Celery can be kept in a dark, cool
place in the cellar with a little earth
around it, anil will keep nicely until
Christmas. Cabbage heads are wrapped in payer and packed in a barrel
or suspended from the rafters of the
cellar. A basket of turnips and beets
will last a lon gtime and save going to
the pit where the main part of the
vegetables are "ouried.
These are gradually used, the refuse is removed from the cellar and
fed to the chickens and tfi'ere is not
a great accumulation of decaying
vegetables to fill the house with disagreeable odors. There Is always a lot
of waste connected with vegetables
and fruit, and if they are buried this
does not have to be removed from the
cellar, but can be plowed or spaded
under the next spring when the are
taken from the pits.
Winter pears are nice If they are
carefully picked and put In the cellar
to get mellow. They wll do this, a
few at a time, and with several bushels to put away will last until Christmas.
Pumpkins can be kept till the next
pumkin season if they are put in the
right  kind  of  place.-   The  cellar  Is

Ivory in Siberia.
In view of the rapid disappearance
of the herds of elephants which formerly roamed in Africa, and the limited number of those animals remaining in Asia, attention has been palled
to the enormous supply of ivory which
exists in tlie frozen tundras of Siberia, and which, it is thought, will
probably suffice for the world's consumption for many years to come.
This ivory consists of the tusks of the
extinct species of elephants tailed
mammoths. The tusks of these animals were of great size, and are wonderfully abundant at some places in
Siberia, where the frost has perfectly
preserved them, and in many cases
has preserved the flesh of the animal
Licorice was once highly esteemed
medicinally, and its cultivation in

signifying "sweet root." The root was
first imported from Spain.

U.  8.  National  Association  Met Yesterday���Hal Chase and the
San AAfonlo, Texas, Nov. 17.���Betting on Mseball games was scored as
���one of the real detriments to the
game before the' National Association
of Professional Baseball leagues today. At the suggestion of President
Baum. of the Pacific Coast league, the
attorney general of the United States,
as well as the authorities of tho
States, will be petitioned to exercise
their power to stop ?ool selling and
other gambling devices affecting baseball.
That negotiations are under way
looking to the replacing of Hal Chase
as manager of the New York Americans next season by Harry Wolverton,
manager of the Oakland team of the
Pacific Coast league, Is persistently
reported. It ls expected that Wolverton will confer with the directors of
the New York club In Philadelphia
next week. None of the parties Interested would be quoted.
Milwaukee was selected as the
meeting place of the association ln
1012, and an "umpire" and "play
grounds" days were endorsed.
Tomorrow old time stars will play
ball for charity. For the east the
batteries will be George Ledy and
".llm" O'Kourke, and for the west
"Bill" Hailey and "Happy" Hogan.
For the west team Jack Holland
will be nn first base; Frank Isbell,
2b; Harry Wolverton, 3b; Tip O'Neil,
cf; Charles Murphy, rf. A shortstop
and left fielder are to be chosen.
Alderman Johnston, every good, clean,
straight, square specimen of manhood
ln the gathering���and of such specimens the gathering was wholly composed���had a pleasant time.
Though the prospect of grounds being playable today is, to put it mild
ly, somewhat uncertain, eight matches
are scheduled to be played on the
mainland. Among them is the game
between New Westminster city amateurs and the Vancouver Centrals.
This game ls the first In the second
round for the Iroquois cup, and on
neutral ground the merits of the respective teams should be well demonstrated.
Government   Encourages   Proficiency
in Army Officers.
Although the art of making kites
has been cultivated in Japan from
time immemorial, and the manlifting
kite, the precursor of the modern
aeroplane, was, according to tradition,
utilized hy a banished daimio to send
.a message to his vassals in the year
115��, Japan has heen slow in taking a
share ln the great recent development
of aviation as well as of the other
branches of aeronautics.
Two years ago, however, the Japanese government sent two army officers to Europe to study aviation, viz.,
Capt. Hino to Germany, and Capt. Tokugawa to France. These officers
besides making themselves proficient
in the art of flying, purchased on behalf of their government a numlwr
of aeroplanes of various makes, Bleriot, Wright, Grade, Farman and have
now returned to Japan, where they
are now glvin;: instruction to a number of other officers. For tho purpose nf those lesions tbe government
has established a large aviation field
abo'it two hours' Journey by railway
from Tokio.
The government has also organized
an offcial society for the study of aviation, Its members all being government employees. Including military
and naval officers and professors In
the Imperial university. A grant of
$376,000 has recently been voted to
this organization.
The Japanese are not entirely dependent upon foreigners for their flying machines. Capt. Hino, Dr. Nara-
ham. Capt. lsobe, of the navy, Messrs.
Morlta and Tsutsiki and Baron Iga
have devised various forms of aeroplanes.
Each of the important newspapers
of Tokio now has a department devoted to aeronautics. The Hoehi
Shimbun, the leading paifer ot the
city, has engaged the services of
Messrs. Takata and Inouye as "aviation editors," and the Asabl Shimbun
has a similar functionary in the person of Mr. Usui. The semi-official
journal Kokumin has offered a prize
of IK000 for a flight over the Bay of
It is also ou the schedule that tbe
Rovers and the Celtics will play today
in New Westminster. The game, no
matter when played, will be wvrth
feeing. The management of the
Celtics have repeatedly demonstrated
that they know how to maintain a
good string of players who make up
an aggregation that every opposing
club has to reckon with. The manager
of the Rovers team lias a much narrower field to glean from, but In spite
of disadvantages, the prospects of the
Rovers, with regard to every scries
of games, league or cup tie, are better this year than ever before. In
sport. New Westminster ls pre-eminent among cities of similar size In
Canada. The Royal City owes this
pre-eminence to thc prowess of its
native sons on the lacrosse fleld. Canada was never moro in the eye of the
world than lt is today. Lacrosse ls
the national game of Canada; New
Westminster is the home of lacrosse.
This Is one of the reasons why the
Rovers, and every other football club
in the city, should strive without
ceasing to uphold the prestige and
enhance the reputation which the lacrosse teams have established for the
Hoyal City in the world of sport. The
Rovers should go in and win.
England Is the home of prize fighting. Two generations ago the British
school boy read stories in which the
superiority of bis countrymen over
men of misguided continental nations
ccnslsted In their ability to barfllo
their fists. Even stories ot the dead
days when as yet there was no cor
dlale entente, and when the sailors
of Britain and France fought when
ever and wherever they met, tbe Bi.lt
ish hero of fiction knocked out the
other man by dint of superior skill In
the game of fisticuffs. And now comes
the ruling of the police court magistrate of Birmingham, that the pro
posed boxing match between Owen
Moran and Jem Driseoll for the light
weight championship of the world
would be a prize fight within the
meaning of tlie act, and therefore
illegal. Both boxers were bound over
to keep the peace.

Great  Improvements to   Be   Made  in
Vancouver, Says Sir Thomas.
President of C. P. R. Makes Announcement to Board of Trade.

"We do not estimate that the Coquitlam Improvements will be sufficient to cope with tho needs of Vancouver," said Sir Thomas G. Shaughnessy,
president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, this morning in an Interview
granted a committee from the Vancouver Board of Trade, at the Hotel
"During the past five years the Canadian Pacific Railway company has
spent $60 000,000 ln the improvement
and extension of trackage and station on the old lines alone, and In
the new appropriations the neels of
Vancouver will receive ample consideration," continued Sir Thomas, "u'e
realize fully the great future of the
Greater Vancouver, and our present
plans for this city are simply a part of
the company's projected work in an
endeavor to kec;> well abreast of the
Elevators for Waterfront.
"Under present conditions, there is
not  much   probability     of    extensive
grain shipments from the prairies to
the markets of the world through  the
port  of   Vancouver,     but     with     the
completion of the Panama canal    we
shall   find  it  Incumbent   upon  us    to
construct an elaborate system  of elevators an.l  grain  shipping machinery
along   the   Vancouver   waterfront.     A

Steel Plant Projects.
Thre iron and steel works, it has
been announced, will be established
in New Westminster district In the
immediate .future. Three have almost been two too many, and the public have become skeptical. At the latest announcement made by Mr. W.
Owen. M. E��� of London, England, that
he had acquired for a company of
British capitalists, a site of 200 acres
on the Pitt 1 iver���north of the C. P.
R. railway bridge, and directly across
i*.e river from the two-mile Btrip, in
reference to which the railways havi
sumltted plans for extensive freight
and terminal car repair an I construction  works���for a  steel  plant with  a
theee important industrial projects,
and says in a recent issue.
"It is a matter of congratulation to
find that British Columbia ls the field
chosen by Mr. Owen, as the representative of British capital, for the establishment of iron and steel works. This
is the most important development
affecting mining and industry that
has yet taken place In the province.
There are extensive deposits of magnetite and other iron ores in the province, and while some of these are valueless for the production of iron and
Bteel on account of their sulphur contents below the zone of oxidation.
there are deposits, tests on which
bave shown them to lie of desirable
quality for the purpose.
"With the amount of railway construction   and  ferro-concrete  building
thousand tons capacity a day, and an
annual output of 260,ooo tons of finished product, there has not been undue enthusiasm.
But tbere is hardly likely to be any
doubt about the sincerity of tbe promoters of this Pitt river, or of the
Fort Mann steel proposal, or of the
big enterprise of tbe Western Steel
Corporation of Steel City, southwest
of New Westminster. The Fraser
river Is a splendil waterway for the
transport of the raw materials from
the Vancouver island mineral areaB to
points where rail and keel meet. It
can not be otherwise than that some
of the projects should assume concrete form in time. The British Columbia Mining and Engineering Rec-
cord of Victoria has a good deal of
faith in the.eventual consummation of

Canadian Northern Construction Com-
pany Awards Contract to Tuohy
Bros. Company.
Agreement was Signed Yesterday and
Work Will Begin on New Section Early Next Spring.
Coupling ono of the last links ln the
transcontinental line of the Canadian
Northern Railway company is the
work that will confront the Tuohy
Bros, company of railroad contractors
when they start upon their work of
constructing the hundred-mile stretch
up north along the Thompson river
valley. The work, entailing an expenditure of $5',000,00O���contract for
which has been awarded to the Tuohy
Bros. Co. of Portland���will commence
early next spring. No time limit has
as yet been announced for its completion.
Fifty miles above Kamloops the
railroad contractors will begth the
work that will bring closer together
the eastern and western ends of the
Canadian Northern, and will give to
Canada another transcontinental artery of civllzation and trade. Immigrants will find new fields of activity
nnd British Columbia will profit by
this influx of new blood and. .new energy.
Mr. Robert E. Tuohy, representing
the Portland firm of contractors,
signed the necessary papers yesterday
with the local representatives of the
Caaadian Northern Construction company, and expressed himself most
eulogistically about British Columbia's
-railroad activity, wlien seen at the
Hotel Vancouver. "There Is probably
more railroad building going on in
British Coluhmbia right now than In
any other part of the Dominion, or
th l'nited States, for that matter,"
said Mr. Tuohy. "This province ls being opened up and exploited more vigorously than any other part of the
country, not Just because it needs opening up, but becauae It promises
the richest returns in sight. There is
hardly anything; that can not be found
under the ground or raised above it
in British Columbia, and opening up
British Columbia means simply to
throw open the doors of Canada's
warehouse to the world.
"We shall begin active construction
work on our new contract next spring,
and expect to complete the job as
soon as possible. Tbe plans call for
100 miles of road, beginning about 50
miles above Kamloops, up north
along the Thompson river valley.
When tbat Is finished, the transcontinental chain of the Canadian Northern will practically be completed."���
News-Advertiser,  Nov.   5,  1911.
In sight, British Columbia will be one
of the best markets In the world for
iron and steel products. The new
Industry will be In the hands of men
of wide experience and a thorough
knowledge of the business they have
undertaken, and it is not too much
to hope that, through their, enterprise, the time Is not far distant when
the iron and steel requirements of
Western Canada will be supplied fron
ores mined, and from furnaces and
rolling mills operated in the province."���Westminster Columbian.

Working of the System in the United
States  Is  Discussed.
One of the most   Important    cases
ever    argued     before    the    Supreme
Court of the United States is the appeal  from  the  initiative and referendum law of Oregon, which is about to
begin.    The Supreme    Court will    be
asked  to say  whether  any state  has
the constitutional right to pass an Initiative   and   leferendum   amendment.
In  view of the  fact that  nine suites
have already adopted this method cf
government,  and  In  eight others the
,ji:rstion  is  to  be  submitted  to    tho
people as a constitutional amendment
the importance of tlie case to millions
af   American   citizens   will   be  appreciated.     It   is   altogether   likely,   too,
that   we   in   Canada  shall   bo   called
til on some day to express our opinion
of this system of government, for it is
a favorite nostrum of reformers, who
believe   that   its   adoption     wiil   cure
many political evils that are more or
less common In all democratic countries.
Spurring and Checking Legislatures.
The initiative and referendum ls a
; system whereby a certain percentage
:of qualified voters, by petitioning    a
legislature, can  compel  it to discuss
la certain measure and vote on It; and
! can   compel   the   legislature   to   refer
any  of its acts to the people for ap-
! proval   or  disallowance.    In  the nine
j American  States  where  this  method
prevails the percentage of voters necessary   to   initiate   legislation   varies
| from   16  tier cent   in  Oklahoma  to  6
; per cent in Missouri and Oregon, and
:the   percentage     requisite     befo:c   a
measure pasted on by the legislature.
can be   referred    to a popular   vote
ranges from IB per cent In Oklahoma
to 3 per cent in Arkansas.   It is claimed  by  advocates  of the system that
the high percentage for both the initiative and tho referendum  in Oklahoma makes the scheme unworkable,
Taxing the Corporations.
Oregon was the pioneer agitator of
the system, so far as this continent is
concerned, but South Dakota adopted
it thirteen years ago. or four years he-
fore  Oregon  finally   approved  it.     It.
was left   for the attorneys   of a Portland corporation to challenge the constitutionality of the law, and, beaten
ln the State courts, it is this corpora
tion that Is now carrying the matter
before the Supreme Court. It appears
that among the laws that have been
passed by the people through the ref-
erendum ls one inflicting a tax of
2 per eent on the gross receltts of
all express, telephone and telegraph
companies. The Pacific States Telegraph and Telephone Company re-
fused to pay the tax, which amounted
to something more than $10,000, and
objects to the law under which it was
imposed on several grounds. The arguments advanced do great credit to
its lawyers. One argument is that,
whereas the constitution provides
that the state legislatures ehall be
representative, the initiative and referendum substitutes as a legislature
a part, of the voters of Oregon not
elected by the people.
5cm? Fine Technicalities.
Again, the Initiative and referendum deprives, or might deprive, the
state legislature of its constitutional
Hghts and duties in deciding the time,
the place and " !r "''Tees In
������-.77. h membera oi Confess are to bo
electe ' It gives .\c, \oteis nt large
the right to appeal to the United
States   for  protection   from   domestic
violence within the state, which is,
under the constitution, the exclusive
right of the legislature or the governor. It creates within the state a legislature, or part of a leglslature4 empowered to legislate without taking
the oath of office, as required by an
Act of Congress. Again, the constitution gives to the governor of tlie state
the power to make temporary appointments to the United States Senate in
a recess of the legislature. Now, since
tho people are really the legislature,
or part of it, how can it be said that
there ever occurs a receffe? Failure
to provide a recess infringes on one
of the guaranteed rights of the governor. , ,
A Far-Reaching Decision.
There are several other good arguments to urge against the initiative
and referendum, and should any or
all of them Induce the Supreme Court
to declare the system unconstitutional
eight other states will be directly con-
corned, for it will be argued that all
the laws passed by means of the refer,
endum are unconstitutional and inval. (
id When the celebrated income- tax <
decision was handed down by the Supreme court hundreds of thousands of
people clamored for the return of assessments illegally levied, and even
greater confusion would be likely to
follow a decision adverse to Oregon.
If "Mr. Dooley" was right when he
said that the "Supreme Court follows
the election returns," there 16 not
much prospect of Oregon's system being declared unconstitutional.

brought much further by tho experi-'
mentl   which    Dr.   H.   Gerhart   had
lectured on at the Berlin University!
Polyclinlcal   Institute.    In   order to
see what was   the effect   upon   man1
when  he first took  to upright walk.
Dr. Gerhart placed quadruplets   in a
similar  position  and  observed  them.
He forced a large number of different
animals  to  stand,  walk  and,  at  far'
as possible, live on their hind legs.
A typicnl test wss made with a fox
terrier, whicli stood and walked on
its hind legs for seven hours a day
for 28 weeks. The terrier was then
killed and dissected and compared
with an ordinary dog of the same
race nn sex. Examination proved
that lhe change from four legi to two
legs had radically transformed the
terrier's anatomy.
The natural architecture of man,
snys Klotz, another scientific investigator, is quite obvious. It was
plainly intended that the spinnl
column should be horizontal and
that all the vital nnd easily injured
organs should depend from it and be
protected by it. To-day mnn unconsciously hankers niter his lost position of quadruped. This is seen by
the attitudes he takes during sleep.
Numerous scientific tests show that
the regenerntive effect of sleep, both
on body and mind, is greatest when
a mnn sleeps face downward, as do
the mnjority of animals.
Nightmares, "sieep drunkenness,"
"brain pressure" nnd other abnormal
sleep conditions are never experienced by a man sleeping in this
position. They are caused by the
genuine bip^d attitude of sleeping on
the back. Sleeping on the back, with
the limbs outstretched, is so unnatural that the lower animals can be
temporarily paralyzed by fixing them
in that position. In short, man's
upright carriage, which he regards
as his unique distinction and glory,
is merely a physiological blunder
and it will remnin so until man hns
perfectly adapted himself to it. Until
then he will continue to suffer from
his vaulting ambition to tower over
the rest of the animal creation.
