Neither Canneries Nor Fishermen, He.

"There are no regulations prohibiting the export of fresh* salmon from
the Fraser river to the United Statea,
with the single exception of sockeye.
The result of a change in this regulation which would allow of the sale ot
the  latter  variety  to  tbe   American

would not benefit the river fishermen.

made by Mr. Turnbull at the meeting ,
of the trades and labor council   on
Wednesday, that such a change waa to

Ihe chuirman went on   to   explain
that up till about three years ago it
had been le^al to export every variety
of fresh salmon, but professor Prince
and the fisheries commissioners had
recommended that the export of fresh
sockeye be  prohibited, and a regulation   hud   been passed     accordingly.
"Now it is claimed   by   the   persons
who have   brought about   the recent
change from   this   pollcy,"   he   continued, "that the canners go over to
the United States, and buy the sockeye caught in the. American traps at

Attendance at the market v/Ap oply
fair yesterday. This was chiefly ibw>
lng to the condition of the roads.
These were frozen over on the surface
but so slightly that horses broke
through into the mud beneath. Consequently farmers were not so Willing to come to market as'would have
been natural on such a flne day.
Supplies generally were fairly abundant, but there was no beef for sale
at all. Pork as usual was plentiful,
but held its slightly advanced price of
last week without any difficulty. There
wus a fair quantity of veal and a little mutton In evidence. The fowl market was well supplied, and as usual
the birds sold readily. Prices, however, remain very steady, showing lit'
tie or no variation from week to
week.
Vegetables came forward freely, but
onions were rather scarce. Potatoes
are still heavy on the market with
only a fair demand. Dealers have not
yet quite worked oft their fall stocks,
and until tbey have done this spuds
are likely to be a littlo slow. How far
they will advance In price when this
supply is finally exhausted cannot be
seen, but that the demand wlll Improve Is almost certain. Flsh and
flowers were plentiful, and the stalls
devoted to these articles made a good
showing. Egrs stay down and were
selling at 27cents a dozen at wholesale. Apples are over for thei season
and none appeared on the market yeslerday nor the week before.

There had been a fatal accident at

pompous old fellow, who magnified
conscientiously both his office and its

There was only one witness of the
accident, an illiterate Slav from the
coal mine:? who could understand
no English. With him the coroner
bogan to struggle.
"Can you speak German?" he asked.

SHEER COWARDICE.
Nothing more unseemly ln the history of legislation can bo pointed to
than the; way in which the expend!-
tore of inrtllons of publfc money and
the assuiKption of teps of millions of
responsibility was ' forced upon the
BufafUM last, week, says the Sun.
The electors are to be treated with
��veto less respect than their representatives. Like them they are not to
fee givn time to consider public meis-
s, but worse than that even, stale
Infamously defective voters' lists
tb be resurrected to prevent anything like a hill expression of public
ojininn. An honest administration,
wiih nothing to fear, would have insisted upon such a complete vote as
��� ��sw�� only be brought about by a full
revision of the lists, and a redistrlbu-
tfesa based upon the census returns. A
fair government would have favored
fuli debate and the concession ol
anaplt: time;'and opportunity for canvassing every issue. We can understand a band of crooks and footpads
resorting to every method, no matter
ho-sudevlous, to escape a fair trial, an.l
circumvent the administration of
juslice, but such tactics cannot often
he attempted in the great court of
public opinion with Impunity. In denouncing the tactics of the McBride-
Bowser combination as unsportsmanlike, and cowardly to the last degree,
we know we are but expressing the
-ojrinion of every fair-minded man in
liritish Columbia.

ought to be classified in schools ac- j
cording to their physical, moral and
mental tendencies. All cities ought
to employ as superintendents specialists in child study, and these specialists will thrust aside, ha predicts, "the
mechanically symmetrical cyjurseB of
study, through which all pupils, backward and brilliant alike, are now herded," and iaugurate Instead a system of
study graduated according to the physical aptitude of each individual pupil.
! An expert ou^ht not to know merely
that a pupil is backward, but be

Responsibility on Children.
One admirable remark ls made by
Prof. Trettlen: "When a pupil saya
to a teacher, '1 don't like that study,'
the problem is presented to the new
superintendent specialist of finding,
out scientifically why he does not line
the study, and of overbomlng the difficulty by changing tbie study or influencing the child's mind." The good
teacher, whether he ls a specialist or
not, will take the ground that lf a
child does not like a certain study, or
does not make satlsfactty study, the
blame ls with the teacher, not with
the child. The habit of blaming himself when things go wrong, instead of
blaming Bomeone els^, is an (admirable
one for all to cultivate, and ln school
teachers it has an important effect on
the generation of citizens he ls helping to train.

Victoria out-played Vancouver last
night at the Area* to the tune ot
seven goals to three. Vancouver
was without Phillips, und Frank Patrick hud his right eye badly cut iu
the second period, 'this had the ef-
-feet of severely weakening the Terminal City's defence, but, nevertheless
Frank put In some good work through-
out Uie game. For Victoria brother
Lester was ln flne form, and the
Capitals had the game well in hand
after the first period. Their combination was good, and once they had
established a lead, the Vancouver
players aever seemed to get a grip
on the gume again.
The result or this match wlll be to
put Victoria once more iu the running
for the chumpionshlp. It they had
lost this game they would havo been
out of the competition, but their victory has saved them from this posli
tion, and there is now almost an
-equal chance for any of the three
teams to come out on top, although
Westminster now has a lead that wlll
be hard to overcome.

schedule, it is a three to one shot

No follower of football wilP fail to
be at Moody square this afternoon to
see the great game between the V. A.
C. and the Senior Amateurs. ' The
league matches are gradually drawing
to an end, ahd the competition is getting more and more exciting with
�����very game. Westminster has lately
sti uck a vein of really line form, and
the club ls well in the running for that
championship. Today's match is a
critical one. The V. A. C. are among
the leaders, too, and the loser of today's match wlll have received a blow
that it will be hard to recover from.
Victory, on the other hand, will mean
jxa much more in tho opposite direction, und Westminster means to secure tbe winning goal this afternooif'j
or know the reason why. It will be a
great game. 1 here should be a big j
crowd to see it.
Before the Senior Amateurs kick off
���at 3 p.m. there will be a good game
played ln the city league between
East Burnaby and Sapperton. Supporters of both aides are preparing to
attend the match, which should be
well,worth seeing. The kick-off for
this game will taxe place at 2 p.m.
Basketball fixtures for today are a
game between the Y. M. C. A. and the
provincial normal, and one between
V2M pound teamB from Columbian college and the V. M. C. A. The flrst

days of chivalry ln the eighth century,
when European countries swarmed
with knight errants attempting some
bold deeds. Many of them having objects in common, the custom grew for
them to undertake their quests in
company, and out of this sprang the
companionships. However, it was not
until nearly the middle of the fourteenth century, that the first order
was founded by Royalty ln England,
and that was the Order of the Garter,
sometimes called also the Order of St.
George, because it was placed under
the protection of a particular saint,
and for the first British order the
patron saint of England was chosen'.
The Fall of the Garter.     \
Probably no event ln mediaeval
history ls better known than the incident that gave the order its name
and its motto, but there are so many
versions of it that the accepted story
is worth repeating. It appears that at
a court festival a lady's garter fell to
the floor. Several gentlemen noticed
tt and smiled significantly, but Edward III., ln order to rebuke them,
picked it up and placed it on his o*n
leg, with the remark, "Honl solt qui
mal y pense." This observation has
been variously Interpreted, the commonest translation being "Evil be to
him who evil thinks." The accepted
translation of Sir H. Nichalas Is "DIb-
honred be he who thinks til of lt."
The lady in question was the Countess
of Salisbury, but the Queen and the
Countess of Kent have also been mentioned. The garter today is worn on
the left leg at state functions, and ls
of dark material edged with gold. , v,in
bearing in golden letters the motto;
"Honl soit qui mal y pense."
Only Fifty Members.
Though the incident of the garter,
as noted, gave the name to the new
order, tt did not inspire the king with
the idea of forming it.   This plan he
had resolved on In order to attract
some of the  most Illustrious gentlemen in Europe to his service in the
wars with France, and to offset the
inducements of the Frerich Order of
the Star, that had   been   founded recently.   At flrst the order was limited
in   membership   to twenty-five   members, exclusive of the king, who was
at Its head.   In 1788 the membership
was enlarged to 32 and in  1805 and
1831 there were additions to it in order to include the lineal descenJants
of George I. and  George  II.    At the
present time  the  membership is set
at  fifty, half of the members   being
foreign emperors, kings and princes.
Most of the royal  family  are   members of the order, though the old custom of admitting ladies to  membership has  been  abandoned, except in
the case of a reigning queen.    It ls
one of thc most desirable, decorations
in   Europe,  and  there  is  no  foreign
sovereign   who   would    not   consider
himself deeply  honore.l  to  have the |
Order of the.Garter bestowed on him.
Knights   Degrade:!.
In early days gentlemen of every
class were eligible, but now the order
is restricted to the most noble, and
no one ls admitted who was not flrst
a Knight Bachelor. On several occasions in the history' of the order
Knights of the Garter have been degraded, but since high treason has become practically obsolete there have
been no such sensational occurrences.
The last Knight of the Garter to have
tbe prized decoration withdrawn from |
him was James, the second Duke of
Ormond, in 1715. Thirty years before,
the Duke of Monmouth forfeited his
right to membership in this select
circle by rising in rebellion.' There
have been cases when an order was
withdrawn by one sovereign only to
be returned by another, and when
Mary came to the throne one or two
of her Roman Catholic champion?
were thus restored to honors they had
previously forfeited.
The Ancient Oath.
formerly lt used to be the custom
of the Knights of the Garter to gather
once a year for a notable feast, but
this observance has disappeared, and
few ceremonies are attached to membership, the most Important being the
vow taken b^ se'ach new member, who
promises "as'long as he shall be 8
fellow of the order to defend the
honor, quarrels, rights and lordship,.
of the sovereign, and that he will endeavor to preserve the honor of the
said order and all the statutes of lt
without fraud or covin." All this we
may expect Sir Edwrad Grey to do,
and the great honor that has been bestowed upon him will have the approval of all British parties, for Sir
Edward Grey is as much respected
by UnionistBvas he is by the Liberals,
and, while he has critics among the
Radicals, he has no ill-wishers anywhere.

Asqulth's    Solution    of    the    Present
Problem   Discussed.
If every radical piece of legislation
enacted by the British Government
were in response to the exigencies of
a situation as grave as that which
now conironts industiial Britain, the
Asciuith Ministry would have a much
stronger elajm on public conti lence,
says the Mail and Empire. To nationalize the coal mines of the country
is socialism of the most udvanced
type, but the great majority of the
Btitish people would approve it, if it
were the only alternative to a general
strike of the 900,000 coal miners of
Great Britain. Last summer, after the
railway strike was at an end, It was
said by some of the strongest Tories
in the land that rather than undergo
another such trial the government
ahould nationalize the railways. A
state scarcely different from that
which would exist if a hostile army
were in the country was brought
about by the tying up of the British
railroads. A general coal strike would
bring still worse evils ln its train, lt
would mean a species of anarchy, and
most people would prefer Socialism to
anarchy.
The nationalization of the coal
mines seems to be the only solution ot
the present difficulty lf both miners
and mine owners persist In their determination, the one to establish a
minimum wage, the other to pay only
according to the amount of coal that
is mined. A coal strike in a country
where there is never more tban a few
weeks' supnly on hand would mean
that the railways would have to shut1
down, lt would mean that all the latteries in the land that lould not import ioal from abroad would have to'
close; and that the coal fires all over
England would go out. Coal mining ls
ihe basis Industry. When lt is paralyzed every other industry falls to the
ground, and practically the whole Industrial population is thrown out of
employment. Rather than submit to
such a condition the British Government would he willing to buy the
mines from the owners, and operate
them as public utilities. Kven in these
circumstances there would remain the
possibility of the men striking, but in
the event of the government taking
over the mines it would probably pass
legislation to put the mines In the
same class as Boldiers. If soldiers go
on strike they are court-martialed and
punished without reference to the nature of their grievances.
So the miners would have to be regarded, and apparently it ia only by
such drastic, means that. Britain can'
escape from the ever-present terror
of a general strike. Agreements (ire
worthless. No agrement that could
settle the present strike  could   have
any real value. At the present lime
I tbe most solemn sort of agreement exists between tne South Wales coal
I miners and the owners of the mines.
That agreement was entered into two
years ago, after a long struggle and
much negotiation, it was tu govern I
the lelations between the men and j
their employers for a period of flve
years. Before signing it, the miners'
representatives referred It to the Miners' Federation of Great Britain, by
which body it was approved. More
than that, it was submitted to uallot
to the whole rnasj of the miners included in the South Wales Federation, and trebly ratified. Yet today
that agreement is treated by the
Welsh miners as though it did not exist, and i.u> couth Welsh miners are
ready to strike with miners fiom other'parts of the country if the employers dp not agree to the minimum demand.
The employers would appear to
have every reason for resisting further agreements since they find out
that the men wil not abide by them
ir they think they can secure an increase of wages by violating them. On
the men's side it must be said that
they are doing real drudgery of England, and they are not much better
paid for it than office boys are paid
in Canada or the United States. The
men declare that as long as they are
paid by the amount of coal they are
ahle to mine they wlll not be able to
get a square deal, since to mine a
ton of co.il in one shaft might be more
difficult than to mine four tons in another part of the same mine. The
employers admit that there is a difficulty to be overcome here, and have
signified their willingness to negotiate
with the men on this point. The men
simply say that a minimum rate ls
the only cure for the trouble, and here
negotiations are b/oken off.
Britain's folly in exporting her
coal is another feature to be considered. She sends her coal out of the
country to keep foreign industries
running, these foreign Industries ship
their product to Britain again, and
by their competition cut down wages
in the home industries, Including, indirectly, that of coal mining. The
free trade principle would appear to
be at thn bottom of the whole difficulty, although in fairness lt must be
said that even in highly protected
countries coal strikes are Just as dangerous as in Britain. In the United
States, on the occasion of tho last
great coal strike, the government seriously considered the Question of nationalizing the coal mines. The chief
difference between the British and tho
American miner is that the latter
cams ln two days as much as the former does In a week: but In the two
