Royal   Geographical   Society  Officials
Advance Theory that Discoverers
Ha^ Agreement.
London, March 12��� The theory that
Captain Amundsen an.i Captain Scott
had entered into an agreement whereby each was to be permitted to tell
his own story was advanced here tonight. As an explanation for the delay in receiving news from the British Pole hunter, according to officials
of the Royal Geographical Society,
they probably met near the pole.
Recalling the controversy that
raged after the -return of Dr. Cook
and Commander Peary from the far
north, it was suggested that the rival
explorers might have pledged their
honor that neither would reveal anything of the other's exploits when
they reached civilization.
It was believed that when the Fram
reached Hobart, one of the members
of the expedition probably revealed
the news of Captain Scott's success
without realizing that he was breaking a confidence. The report wei
cabled to London and when Amundsen was informed of the "leak,"
Scott'B admirers think, he promptly-
Issued a denial in order to fulfil his
pledge of secrecy.
learned tbat wlll be of Interest to the
scientific bodies that fre financing the
expedition, and there may be time to
make a trip to that part of the northern coast of Grant Land where Peary
reports having seen what he thinks
were extinct volcanoes, it is not supposed by either of the explorers that
they wil come across anythin3 re-
mrakable. They expect to see nothing but ice, and indentations in the
coast, and the spectacle would hardly
renay them for the trouble they wlll
tane. Apparently there Is "the call of
the Nortji." like the "call of the East"
that Kipling has told us about, and
the struggle to reach the goal Is Its
own reward.

Last Goal of Explorers Lies Far North
of Canada.
The discovery of the two poles
leaves only about one great Arctic ot
Antarctic region to be explored, and
that is Crocker Land, an island lar to
the north of Capada.and only a few
degrees south of ihe pole. It is true
that Crocker Land has been sighted,
but it has never been explore.!. Even
its coastline is unknown, and its interior is represented on the maps as
a blank space. In a few months two
of the men who were with Peary
will sail from Syciney bou.ul for Crocker Land, which they hope to map
some time next spring. Several American scientific bo.lies are raising
funds for tbe purpose, and since the
party will be a small one, and will
require no such outfit as Peary found
necessary, it is probable that sufficient funds will be raised. At any
rate, preparations are now going forward, and the explorers have already
gathered together much of their outfit.
Over the Polar Sea.
George Borup and Doifald Ii. McMillan will be the leaders of the expedition. They were with Peary, and
admit that the lure of the North has
seized them. They are young, able-
bodied, enthusiastic men, and, while
realizing that they will have to undergo hardships on the journey and perhaps risk their Uvea score of times,
they appear to look forward to the
trip as though it were a holiday jaunt
with a picnic basket at the other end
of it. Ihey will take a surgeon along
with them and another man or two.
The last stages of the journey will be
made by dog train over the ice, and
when Crocker Land is itachert thq
party may divide in order to cover
more ground in the few weeks thai
will be left for exploration. Then
there will be the race back over thi
frozen sea to reach the camp at Cape
Hubbard on the mainland. Ivom
this point the retreat wilt be down a
great river that divides Grand Land
from Axel ir.d I.eileif Lend ;>
Bache's Peninsula. Here the ship
will be awaiting them, and they will
return to civilization with their spoil.
Where G/eeley's Men Penshect.
The plan is to leave Sydney about
the middle of July, and go north in
their specially prepared whaling boat.
By starting about this time they are
likely to avoid the ice, unless the unusual severity of the present winter
has had the effect of thickening the
crust. In that case the troubles of
the expedition pre likely to begin
much earlier. They expect Tetv difficulties, however, until they rer.ch
Bache's Peninsula, which is the point
advised by Peary. lf they cannot
reach this spot Hiey will try to land
somewhere on the east of Ellesmere
Land. In discussing hls plans Mr.
Borup remarks that within 20 miles
from the place where they intend to
make their winter quarters, and
where plenty of game is to be had, is
Cape Sabine, the most desolate and
barren sj ot along the coast. It was at
Cape Sabine that 10 of Greeley's men
died of cold and starvation, though
within u few miles of them, as later
explorers have dlscovere.l, Is one of
the finest game preserves in the whole
Hauling Food All Winter.
Tho explorers expect to reach their
winter quarters by the middle of August. They will at once bigln lo lay
in tlie fo:>d supply thai is to last them
through the winter. In anothi r month
there is likely to be enough sho.v to
begin sledding, and then they will
proceed to haul their fool to Cape
Hubbard, a distance of some 3011
miles. Much of the journey, however
will he over a frozen river, and the
travel Is expected lo be much faster
than on the- exposed surface of a Polar ocean. The winter will be spent
on the road, an.l it Is expected that by-
next February there will he enough
provisions cached at Hubbard to supply the party even if no more game of
any sort is seen until they get back
to Bache's Peninsula, it is likely thai
the final dash will he made about thn
middle of February. In what, condition the Polar ice will be between
Hubbard and Crocker Land It. Is Impossible to say, but Mr. Born>> figures
that tho crossing ought not"to"tako
more than two or three weeks. They
uro not likely to have more-than a
month or six weeks on Crocker Land,
for Bhould the ice break up before
ihey have returned to the mainland
thai would be the last of the expedition.

Life on * .Ranch.
A story of women ranchers in the
Century tells amusing experiences
that give glimpses of what capable
and cheery women are doing both for
themselves and to change many of the
ways of the ranching business. Woman-like they make pets, of their animals. When she has taught one
young steer to "give his i-tvaT one
woman rancher was amused to be told
the achievement tbat all his steers
would give their paws without being
told to. Another woman trained a
young steer to carry ier wrap home
from the flelds. He would tiot to
tbe back door and wait for lt to be
l.a nen from his back.
The women, too, say that the cattle
all know where their home ls, and one
night when the corral gate was left
open the whole herd came back to
the house instead of wandering afield
as others would have done. One steer

It is a pleasing story. Indeed, with

Trade returns from a tour of tho
Praser Valley, a Btory of the development of transportation and the reclaiming and banging under cultivation of some of the richest and best

Pauline Johnson and Howells.
Still another Canadian tie is the
author's relationship with Pauline
Johnson, tbe gifted Indlah poet. One
of his father's cousins was married to
Cliief Johnson of'the Six Nation Indians. It was a happy union, and
one of the children of It was Pauline
Johnson. It Is said that one of her
brothers ls a "regular Howells" both
in appearance and temperament,
while the other as strongly resembles
his father's Indian ancestors. Mr.
Howells says that of his own works,
"An Indian Summer" and "A Hazard
of New Fortunes" are his favorites.
The latter has an autobiographical
value, for many of the experiences
therein related were those of the author himself. Now, at the age ot 75,
Mr. Howells has two books on the
stock at once, and besides does roeu-
lar monthly work for i magazine.
How he is to be reckoned with the
great men of the past lt is difficult to
say, but probably critics would agree
that he is the greatest American novelist since Hawthorne.

William Dean Howells recently celebrated his 75th birthday, and in honor
of. the event Col. Harvey, of Harper's,
the gentleman  who   has   been   very
prominent in  politics   lately because
of bis relations with   Governor Wilson, gave him a notable dinner.    In
the   literary   history  of   the   United
States there have been only four other dinners that rank with the Howells
celebration,    namely,   those In honor
of Longfellow, Stoddard, Clemens and
Alden.   When Fame makes up her accounts a hundred  years   from   now,
Howells may not'be the laest of the
flve, one   of the   strongest   features
about his books is their wearing quail- j
ties.    Speaking generally, they do not |
take their readers by storm; they take
tbem by seise.    They flnd some hidden   charm   on   every   reading,  and

Visit to  Canada.
Canadians ought to have a particular interest in, W. D. Howells, since
in several of his stories and sketches
toe has given us some of the most delightful sketches of this country that
-are to be found 'in literature. The
author reciprocates the regard of his
-Canadian readers und has an interest
ia and a knowledge of picturesque
Canada that perhaps no other writer
of equal eminence possesses. It will
he news to many of his Canadian ad-
jnirers that the poet's father was for
many years, a United States Consul
.in this country, his tirst appointment
was from General Grant, and was to
-<3uebc,\ Beiore that time he had
-been a country editor, and no doubt
earned lus a.. cinttr.ent by his political services. Later on he was moved
to Toronto, where he was visited by
his eon, then a young man whose fame
was just dawning, in a recent interview, Mr. Howells speaks of one visit
to Toronto that has left an. ineradicable impression upon his inind, tho.igh
it tooK place many years ago.
A Toronto  Picture.
He waB speaking about the joys ot
authorship, and of how much keener
they are in youth. He went on to
remark that sometimes our greatest
delights came from some apparently
irifllig cause, and gave the following
"I remember that, years ago, when
1 *-as visiting my iauier, al that time
���consul at Toronto, I was Btandlng at
a window late In the afternoon looking at a wi!low tree In the alley and
the moving shadows of its leaves
thrown by the sunset light on the
wall of a houtc. There was something wonderfully beautiful in tlie picture, so simple nevertheless, that I
remember Speaking to my father
about the strangeness of our receiving an Impression so vivid and a
pleasure so keen from sometliln;; so
accidental and so transitory."
It would be a notable feat for some
local admirer of the great novelist to
trace tae house where this char mini;
spectacle was presented, and in the
event of it still standing and the same
trees being there, to enjoy a sensation that has lusted William Dean
.Howells tt}r more than forty years,
.says the Mall and Empire.
Fame at  Montreal.
On this same subject, he made another reference to a Canadian visit
that is worth quoting. As a mere
>'outh he had been American consti!
in Venice, and on his return had published that delightful book, "Venetian Life." He had been able to eet
two or three other articles accepted
in I h<> magazines, and had accepted
a newspaper com mission that took
him to Montreal. At the hotel he had
��igne;l the register, and was standing
near, when a couple of young New
Torten approached the desk to enrol HmnsolveB. One of them on looking over the book exclaimed, "Hello!
Jtere's Howells!" He had remember-
An   Old, Old   Question   Raised
Can Answer?
Should pel-sons   wrongfully   imprisoned lie indemnified by the state when
their innocence'is established? Should
there be public defenders as well as
public   prosecutors?    These  are  two
live questions in the United States at
the present time, their importance being enhanced  by  the widespread  interest taken ln the Brandt case. They
have  been  agitated  here  and   there
for years, and dissatisfaction with the
general  administration  of  justice  on
the other side of the line has been
contributed   to   hy   the   discovery   of
several cases where innocent people j
were  convicted  and imprisoned,  and i
being   found   Innocent,  were   simply |
turned  loose  without  apology  or  re-1
numeration.    Quite    recently a Penn- j
sylvania man serving a life sentence |
for murder was pardoned after many i
years' imprisonment, a confession having established his   innocence.     The |
state did not compensate him for tne
cruel wrong that  the  law  had   done
him, but Carnegie granted him a smal
pension.   In New York a Miss Murphy
was detained as a witness for some
months, und was deprived of her earnings as stenographer to the extent o;
more  than  $1600,   but   no  indemnity
was paid her when it was prove! that
her arrest had been a mistake.
The Mew York Court of Appeals decided some years ago that the state
could not indemnify a wrongfully imprisoned man, the case' in point being
ihat of John Roberts, who had spent
17 years in prison.   Thia decision haa
prevented men Vn BlmUar plight heinR
remunerated,     and     indicates     that
Brandtj^j *.cl*hn'    for      compensation
| would  net be* granted   should  he  decide to make one.     lt seems   likel>
I that the  legislature  will  make  somt.
j effort to change the law in this matter, and may copy a bill that has been
presented to the,N'ew Jersey legislature.   This provides for an indemnity
of a  dollar a  day  for  every day  of
wrongful detention, plus a lump sum
of $1000.      The governors of several
other states have expressed opinions
to the effect that some system of in
demnification should be adopted. Several    European countries havo    long
recognized  the* duty of making  what
repaiation  is in their   power to victims of injustice.   As long ago as 178';
the Grand Duke of Tuscany establish
ed the principle in his duchy.
I A  Good   German   Law.
I Germany has a carefully drawn up
law that was adopted some ten yeais
ago. It recognizes the right of a
wrongfully imprisoned man -\o secure
indemnity, as long as no "grounded
suspicion" rests against him. A
Scotch verdict of "Not proven" will
not entitle him to redress. Should he
be in jail by design, through grave
negligence on his own part, or
I through an act which, though not punishable in itself, is lacking in morul-
| Ity, or through voluntary intoxication,
| he is not given an honorarium, it is
left to the judge to say, whenever a
1 case arises, whether the acquitted
prisoner is to be indemnified. The
Judge's decision is subject to review
by the Minister of Justice. In ne case
Is it announced whether the innocent
man has received indemnification, because the pniillc knowledge of a prisoner's failure to secure this red:e.su
would he a grave detriment fo him.
hardly less serious to his reputation
than a conviction, it will be recalled
that in the Kngiish (use of Beck a
considerable honorarium was voted to
the  unfortunate man;   and it  is   the
British custom to make financial
amends when a serious mis-carriage
of Justice has occurred.
Want Public Defenders.
This indemnification exten is onlv to
persons who have been unjustly imprisoned, and does not Include iluoe
who have been tried and acquitted.
The German law does. It realizes that
the odium connected with a trial,
even when a verdict of not guilty Is
returned, is enough to crush many innocent inen. The suggestion that a
public defender should be employed
ls approved by several prominent New
York lawyers, who admit that there
are frequent miscarriages of justice
through the poverty or Ignorance of
isoners. especially those Who do not
thoroughly understand English. The
law provides for the defence of persons accused of murier, and unable
to employ counsel of tlieir own, but it
makfes no such provision for tho3e accused or lesser offences, and even in
murder trials the amount to be spent
by' the defence is limited to $500 in
any one case.      How  inadequate   Is
����� ��� 'in -"'tv he juried from the fact
that if   $50,000   or $1'��0,000 is   spent
���-   ,1
legitimately in murder defences by
accused persons who are well provided with funds.
i Railroading Innocent Men.
I The appointment of a public defender in accordance with the bill introduced in the New York Legislature
i wouid greatly tend to prevent Innocent men from being "railroaded," as
is alleged to have been the case with
Brandt. It Is Insinuated, however,
that Brandt was sent to prison
through the complicity of a judge, and
if a judge can be improperly approached so might a public defender. Hero
and there are found prosecuting attorneys who appreciate their position.
They realize that it is as much their
duty to defend the Innocent as to punish the guilty. Generally speaking,
though, the prosecutor confines all his
energies to presenting the evidence
unfavorable to the prisoner. He take.-;
the police view, presumes every prisoner's guilt, and in the opinion of
many statesmen the time has come
when this tendency on the part of
prosecuting attorneys must be coi reet-
ed by the appointment of public defenders.

Y. M. C. A. Juniors.
Tho Juniors who have been practising so faithfully for the past two
months are now about ready to show
what they can do in the way of fancy
marching, maze running, pyramidB.
races, tableaux, etc. Friday night
next ls the date fixed and the boys
.are working hard selling tickets, as
they say they want a full house to
witness their big exhibition as ilt is
called. Outside of the Juniors' part
in the program, they have secured
the services of the Y. M. C. A. orchestra and Mr. Sovereign will swing electric light clubs, lf you want to see
something pretty as well as comical,
say the boys, come on Friday night.
'1 hr quentlon ot appointing a referea
to handle the lacroBse In the B. C.
association thiB coming summer will
be dealt with at the annual meeting
to be held In Vancouver ne>t Saturday.
The meeting will be held at 2 o'clock
tn the Klyeeum hotel. The Vancouver
club will suggest at the meeting that
Charlie Cullln, of Victoria, be appointed to handle all games and that hc
be paid a salary commensurate with
hiB worth. Last year Cullln demanded
$1800 for the season and it ls unlikely
that he will reduce this figure. Cullln
is regarded as the most competent
man available to handle such a position and if he is appointed it will
doubtless eliminate the dissatisfaction j
which existed last year between the -
Royal City team and tbe Vancouver
���aggregation over the referee question.

Chief of these is a proposed new division of purposes, in which every heat
will be made a race by dividing one-
half of the purse among the winners

(liven   the  common   feeding   stuffs

I to decide what to use and what to sell,
I aud whether to buy concentrates, such

I essential element Iii the ration Is protein, and tlie question of how best und
how cheapest to get this is every dal-

; protein   problem   lias  removed  one of
���the  heaviest  items  from  tlie farmer's

The cow that made the greatest
record In the feeding and testing
demonstration conducted by government experts at the recent na-'
tional dairy show was put on to
the lest without preparation of any
kind. The cow ls a pure bred Holstein nine years old and Is known
as Lady Kapple. She became fresh
on Oct. 15, and her best day In the'
test showed that she made a profit
of 62 cents over and above the cost
of her feed. There were thirteen
cows ln the test. The next beat
to Lady Kapple was a Jersey, and
she made within 2 cents ot the
same amount of dally profit. The
Holstein cow pictured Is Alma Ku-
perus De Kol Pleterje. In one year
she produced i-.O.su.i pounds ot milk,
containing 800.45 pounds of tat, or
1,000.56 pounds o( butter.

posed of this cbenp and beneflclal food,
wilh tbe result that the cost of milk
aud butter Is greatly reduced.
While from wbat I bare said above
It might appear that concentrated
feeds not grown on tbe farm are not
Important, this is not altogether true.
They are very valuable nnd give excellent results, but their high price
precludes tbeir use in many case*. Eveu
nt the high price it will be found advantageous to make use of tbem.
Cows vary, greatly in tbeir powers to
use food.
For winter milk production for the
average cow producing twenty-five
pounds of milk per day the following
ration Is n very good one: Thirty
pounds of good corn silage, ten of
bright clover buy. elgbt pounds of
coru stover, two pounds of cottonseed
meal aud three pounds of cornmeal.
Tbe cows should be studied Individually nnd food supplied according
to each animal's consuming capacity.
In order to avoid overfeeding or underfeeding tbe milk scale should he
watched and tbe feed bin at the same
time. It does n<<i pay to feed n poor
cow. nnd she had better be sold, but
it does pay to feed u good cow generously.
Corn For Horses.
It Is not safe under nny circumstances to pasture horses In stalk lields
or to feed them fodder from flelda In
which the com was wormy. Oreat cure
should be exercised In choosing the
corn fed to horses. Often It Is uot
thoroughly cleaned by fanning. There
are too many moldy grains which are
too heavy to be separated from the
sound corn In this way. The snffft
method ls to pour the shelled corn Into
water and skim off and throw away all
tbe part that rises to the surface.

To brighten u sickroom by a gift of

stead of cliuoslng masses ut cut (lowers from a hothouse, to be ehn'rmlua

an Impression of decay and mortality,
she chose n potted plant, full ut buds

The same common sense would also
suggest dowers of cheerful color nnd
not heavily scented. Tlie fresh fragrance of u pot of violets wlll act ns a
real tonic lo some posy lovers, but the
strong perfume of hyacinths or lilies
will stllle a delicate person and often
produce dizziness. A tilt of forethought
can be exercised by finding out from
the nurse lhe temperature at which
the sickroom Is generally kept und
then consulting a florist ns to what

Importance Of
The Suit Section
A man chooses his tailor because he believes him to know how to
cut a suit properly, to fit it well, choose style, and modify them to
suit the condition of wearer.
The same rules should be applied to Women's tailoring. We offer
each of these points as a reason why you should give us the honor of
serving you with one of these beautiful man tailored suits, ^and will
guarantee that you shall be more than satisfied. The new Spring
Suits will be a more than convincing argument for our plea, that
you look over our stock and tell others about our extensive range of
New Spring Suits.
