Just after school this afternoon
uncle took me for a walk down town.
We live out at Sappeiton, and uncle
has come over from Vancouver. He's
not old lf he ls grey haired, and he
wanted to come and see the May
Queen, so wo asked him ovar.
Net all the shops are decoratel yet,
but uncle said that perhaps some ot
them would be, and he told me afterwards tbat a lot of them bad something up their sleeves for May Day
morning. W'e got off the car by the
Crescnt and walked down Columbia
street. The first window we came to
seemed to be quite finished. It was
ever so pretty. There was a view of
the grounds at Que:n3 park w:th flying in lc lines in the air, and in fiont
was the dearest little Maypole with
ribbons going round and round. And
thfige wire little boy scouts anl lsai
sol liers like \\ illie used to play wltb
one Christmas, and little Highlunde.s
in kills 11! e the picture of grandfathei
in the dlnln; room at home.
Then We went on to where it said
"People's Trust." and there was a
Maypole there Just like the biggest
Stictt of c:indy you ever saw, anj a
man was crawling into the window
sti,-feing little Hag3 in place. It seemed to me th it nearly ail the decorations wcrn on ou' side of the sreet,
so wc kept cn walking along. In Mr,
Kdwa d's win 'ow. right among all the
brooches and things tlitre was a po'e
with throa different colored ilbbtn;
twUted io.nl it I'ncio said tint
they would do line (or my Sunday
tint.    He'a uvcr bo silly sometimes.
Wc turned round by thi post office,
and nrroi-se the Toa) Mr. Cordon bad
a lot of illibons in his window, anl
in Mr. D.\virs' drug: s'ore tbo e were
tt* let o.r bl''e'ylls hanging all over,
ar.* at ,he tiii sr:<!n ri'"-;;'; eis?
crossed, just like t'e t'..t.g. tbe Ivy
grows- o cr. We didn't -,i up any farther beoauie uncle said l.c had e
bone in his leg. Well, \\ Is steep.
Just rovr.d tba cornDt- lu Ueid & Mc-
DonaM's shop there was ano'her i Ir-
ship flying and in thc other win low
��omo:n>   was  Bring   up  more things.
Mr. Wdsb had put some pretty ribbon in his front window rnd all t'ie
fruit looked very nice. There were
ever such a lot of dol'.s and little
flags in Mr. Sinclair's, and another
Maypclo colored like the barbers do
It. Tben close by was the biggest
doll I ever Raw and a lot of others,
all dressed in white. That was ln
Blrtch'r. There were many nice windows now. In Smith's bl^ window
there waa every such a pretty thing
things, ribbens anl dolls snd flowers
and picture?. Bui for pictures, we
saw them all In the next window
whe^e Mr- Johnston works. He was
on the ste.) talking and quite a crowd
of people were there looking at the
May Queens. Some of the girls were
queens e'er bo long a?o, and aie now
grown nr  at, uncle said.
In Col'.lster's store wag rnotve-
Maypoi'v-ncar'y eve yb'dy hid a
Maypole���and there wai one dill
crowning the othe<\ W'e we e l^okln^
in Mr. Annandale's anl uncle s U:
"Look, you're going to get come of
those tomorrow." There were stacks
of nice oranges, and white an.l
green decorations.
Then we looked at the butcher's
shop, and Mr. Burns' man was very
busy. 1 never thought fiat all tbosi
things could be made out of meat, but
uncle arid they were. There were
little sucking pigs when we went by
and crowns of stuff with writ ng
alon* tin tiles,
Then In Mr, Kerr's I could look
quite cloBe at another msrry-go--oun:l.
There were hear* of sweet little dolls
in there all going round the Maypole.
The Old Country b">ot store had
some decoration at the back, but
there was every such apretty things
in Morey's. The-e was a little girl
driving a | ony and sitting In the cart,
and by the pony's feet was a funny
little golliwog. And they had a pic
ture of the King and Queen, Just like
ours.
"Hello May Day," lt said In th-
Fit Reform place, and ncross tie
street the Fair and Mr. MacKenrii'e
windows looked ever so bright.
But we s opred and looked ln Lre'^
for a Iona lime ss we waited for tir
car to take us hack. There was a
white polo all platted at tho top Ilk*
uncle aaid the girls did at home In

cause we've to be punctual on parada
tomorrow.

ELUSIVE LOAD OF
HAY MAKES TROUBLE
Most  Remarkable and  Peculiar Case
Sayt Judge  Howay���Pattinson
vs. B. C. E. R.
A curious and In many ways an
Inexplicable case occupied the attention of the county court throughout the whole of Wednesday, and yesterday after hearing the arguments
pio and oon. His Honor Judge Howay
preserve! his decision, comm.n 'n;
that the case was a most remarkable
and peculiar one, and would require
a good deal of consideration.
The action was b'ought by Mr. W.
B. I'Httlufon. of Chilliwack, agalnsl
the B. C. E. R. to recover the value
of 24.85 tons of hay which he shipped
In Novemter last to Mr. E. R. Robin-
jon, of Vancouver. Through an erroi
of one of the employees of the defendant comrany lhe hay was deliver-
eJ to Mr. Rorlson's warehouse In
Vancouver Instead of to Mr. Robinson's. The hay was unloads:! by Mr.
Rorleon and placed In other car.-
whlch were afterwards delivered to
hs consignee, Mr. Robinson.
Mr. Robinson refused to accept the
hay. claiming that lt was not ot good
quality, and the plaintiff waa notified
that the hay was held.io his order.
He therefore came down from Chlllwack, Inspected the hay which had
been reloaded, and declared that It
was not the hay which he had shipped, being of Inferior quality.
The plaintiff called a number of
witnesses, including the men who had

"The Western Paper comp: ny wiil

to be ussd for storing the fue .
These tanks ate now cn th.ir way
from the factory and on arilval i,
wlll take only a few days for thee:
to be placed In position alongside
the rail,v:.y tracks. Oil as a fue! foT
a paper mill is the most economical
compared with wood or coa', stated
the official, as it tikes up le s loom
costs less to handle and with tanks
capable of holding twice the capac: y
of the mill, there will be l.t Is dange'.
of running short.
Visit Over the Plant.
A visit o\er the plant yesterday dis
dosed the fact tbat tbe workmen now
employed at the   mil   have   hpd   u

the senate committee Investigating
the Titanic disaster, did not teveal
any facts tending to confirm the retort that news of the Titanic disaster,
which the White Star line made public on Monday evening, April 15, had

To determine this question was the

which had been presented to tbe Institution by Mr. and Mrs. James
Wise. The presentation address was
made by Mlss Alice Fowler, who in a
very able manner pictured the need
('of all loyal sons and daughters of this
glorious empiie to stand shoulder to
shoulder ln support o." [hi flag of St.
George.
"Ths splendid gift of Mr. and Mrs
Wise," said Mlss FowUr, "is an:ther

we belong. W'e ot the class of 1912
trust it may leng float over the pie:
of St. Anu's."
Followlr.- le'^ons^s and a (flute

of the flag, a memcriam salute wai
t.iven in honor of those brave men
who went to their e'eath two weeks
igo on boe.rd the ill-fated Titanic.
"Be Bri i3h," was recited by Mlss
Elizabeth Orr on the theme of the
last words of the late Captain Smith
speaking from the bridge. Exercises
were then beld in the assembly hall,
and at the close the students flled out
to the new flag pole overlooking the
Crescent and the mighty Fraser,

of the bodies was that of a child and
others of women.
TWO DAYS BATTLE
RAGING IN MEXICO
Outcome Is Still it  Doubt���Five Hun-

Zapatistas.
Mexico City, May 2.���For two days
a battle has been raging at Chlaautl
Puebla, be.ween the Zapatistas forces
numbering about 25U0, anJ 500 federals. The federals are said to have
the advantage of ponticn, but the
outcome of the engagement is still
in doubt. The two Zapatisa;
brothers, as well as the "Terrible
One Eyed" Morales and other leaders
are there, having met for a council
of war, when they were attacked by
the federals.
Despite the official statement of
coniitlons near Cuernavaca, dis
patches to the Imparcial say that the
city is menaced by a large force of
rebels wbich advanced near the place
since the federal garrison was reduced to protect tho railroad.
Culiacan officially is reported t;
have been retaken by the government troops under General Ojeda.
This information without details was
received at the department of the
Interior today.
Reports from Mazatlan inllcate a
deplorable condition among wounded
federals who are too numerous to be
accomrr.odrtel in the military hospital and for whom there kre n��ltte:
medicines nor nurses. The wounded
are victims of encounters with the
icbels against whom they appear to
have been able to defend the city up
to the present. There was said to
be a shortage of foo:l and many He in

Honor For   New Westminster-Need of Men With
Firm Convictions
Fifty Years of Church  Progress���A��f-
drecses Reminiscent of Pioneer
Preachers.
In a delivery at once brilliant and
tlme.y, his woi ship Mayor Lee, on
behair of the city, last night greeted
the Synol of British Columhla, now
gathered at its twenty-first conference In St. Andrew's church of Westminster. This meeting together of
ministers and laymen from evety part
of our wide province Is ln itself a
notable occurrence. Their business is
to discuss and consider matters connected with the betterment of the
church, and yesterday wsb very lull
considered from the point of view
both of business transacted, and of
listening to the discourses of old and
more recently arrived wcrkera in the
field.
"New Westminster," said his worship, "is honored by having the synod
here to celebrate tbe fiftieth annlver-
saiV of St. Andrew's church."
The mayor went on to pay a tribute
to the work that the church had effected and was doing in the province,
dwelling for a moment on the fact
that rerhaps tbls was not appreciated
by aB large a section of the people as
It might be, and deploring the meagre
plttar-cea u^on which the delvers ia
the more remote parts had to labor.
Of the late Rev. Mr. Jamieson and
bis talented wife hia worship spoke
in terms of praise, and he then congratulated St. Andrew's church on
liaving at its head a man of the call-
bte of Rev. J. S. Henderson. What
were needed today in civic, provincial, Dominion or imperial politics
were the men who would stand firmly by their convictions. The groundwork for the formation of character
was fo be gained from tha in.'l;iences
of the church.
FlUy ve��r�� ol Proaww*.
Rev. Dr. McLean then spoks upon
flfty years of prcgiess in B. C. He
recalled the days of tho gold excitement on tho coast when the province
under Hs present name was unknown,
the days of the couplet���
"Five hundred milts to brave where
nothing but moss grew
To cheer the weary traveler on hit
way to Cariboo."
He congratulated the city upon
liaving a mayor of the stamp of
Mayor Lee, racalled the hardships of
the pioneer d tys, and directed the
thought of his hearers to the great
work which 1 -y ahead.
He was followed  by  Rev. Dr. McRae, of Victoria, who holds the longest record of service in the Presbyterian ministry of the province. Hia
address  was mainly reminiscent    of
those great and eood mea who had
planted the standard of the church ty
the northwest and ln British Columbia, men like Dr. John   Black,   "the
apostle of the Red river," ar.d Robert
Jamieson,   who   worked   among  the
goll seekers of 50 years ago.   He recalled the stuge coach   days    when
that means of communication existed
between   Vancouver   "village"     and
Westminster,  and  touched  upon  bis
intimacy wiih former ministers of SL
Ard-ew's church.
.     Work of the Women.
Mr. George A. Wilson then toid ot
the men of the new north who from
Tete Jaune Cache to the Charlottes
were today performing as noble
pioneer work as their predecessors.
He honored tho women of the church
for their help, and spoke of work
among the lumbermen.
Preceding the evening's addresses
a banquet was served in the school
room, the ladies of the church being
the entertainers. At this function
many old time residents of the district spoke, among them being Rev.
Dr. Mackay, Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.J*,
Mr. J. B. Kennedy, Rev, Dr. White,
Rev. W. L. Clay and Mr. T. J. Trapp.
The day's doings tacladed the presenting of the nnanclal an;V statistical
renort for 1911 by Rev. J- Knoa
Wright, the report on church property
by Rev. Dr. McRae, and sn addrew hr
Rev. W. B. Cooper, general seceUry
of the Canadian Bible society. Today
the synod will resume Its deliberations and It wlll close this afternoon.

j BRITISH   SEAMEN'S   CONDITIONS.
Loudon, May 2.���The Titanic disaster has opened up the entire question of the organization of the personnel of tlie Hritish mercant.le mar.ne.
It is declaied that while our shipping
tonnage mounts rapidly each year,
tho characier of our common seamen
has declined. Our mercantile officers
are admittedly splendid, but the men
before the mast tend to become more
and more ma 'e i.p of foreigners. The
l'o'c'sle life in most ships is so poor
tbat Englishmen, save of ths poorest
type, refuse to endure it. The peo:'
food, worst cooking, bud accommodation and low wages liave all combin-
el to turn ninny thousands of deccn'
seamen to other work.
Sailors'   Quarters   Wretched.
Not only this, but the sailors' quarters on shore are usually on the notoriously" worst streets in every English port. Thus we boast a splendid
succession of millionaire shipowners,
but a thinning host of poverty-stricken sailors. The sentiment is growing
here that Hiilisb ships shall be made
endurable fo;- British sailors and fair
wages, decent quarters and good foo.1
shall be granted by tbe st,:it3. It is
also suggested that the owners who
man their ships with cheap foreigners shall he siiperti>ed.
In answer to tbls the owners de-
clcar: "British-born Bailors are sr
drunken, discontented and lawless
thnt we ar? driven to employ foreigners," to wbicli shipping experts r?-
ply that tbe British-bom sailois arc
ba.l because the conditions prevail ng
n the average fore;iis:le arc so unendurable tbat decent Englishmen are
driven away.
Ridicules Senate Inquiry,
Notwithstanding all this, however,
London deeply resents whal it considers the harsh pre-judgment and nn
lair treal ment of Titanic witnesses
by the U. S. senate inquiry. Men liee
iciff at the ignorance betrayed by
members of the senate commutes, al
their foolish questions and at the tre-
judicate attitude nn:l hectoring manner of the chairman.
Bonar Law in Disfavor.
Ronar Law's position as Unionist
leader is now more uncertain than
ever. The Times, in an Illuminating
slip last week referred to Right Hon.
A. J. Balfour as "leader of the opposition." Law lias proved an admirable
chief of stiff, but a poor general, He
his lmpiovcd the Unionist crginz -
ticn, hns tightened i s disci-line, an5
driven tbe parliamentary idlers anl
invali is into private life. He bus,
however, l'ai'ed as a creator of Union
st policy and as inspirer of its ideals
His petty triumphs have been thos-
t>f a "golienioudio," a catcher of Hies.
His sneers and jibes at his opponents liave delighted the younger
Unionists, but have u'.tstly failed ti
justify bis selection.
Unionists   Disgruntled.
There is deep dlssatisfsc ion In
the Unionist ranks,' whic'i miy ssor.
tike audible form. On al sides on
bears belittling comparisons of Law
is against Balfour, and the no*' style
s not a sue-ccss.
Tiie unanimous action of tho recent convention of the Nationalists a
Dublin has shattsiod the main hopes
of lbe t'nionist opponents of Lloms
Rule. They freely fovetn'rt thu lhr
Irish would declln > to accept so cautiously piannel a scheme, ani now
they altcmrt to maintain that the
unanimity of the convention proves
tbat it does not genuinely represen'
Irish Nationalist opinion.
STORIES OF "G.G."
Same  Tales of Great English   Entertainer's Adventures.
An almost innumerable number ol
more or less true storins hnve been
fastened on to the late Mr. Geo. Grn?-
smith. whose death bus removed irom
th: public stage a clever comHiim
and witty entertainer���though, to lie
sura, Mr. Grossmith bad not appeared
professionally for some time bpfore
liis decease. Very early in liis career
he was appearing ut a London halt In
his e.i��-iritv of musical entertainer.
Addressing his audience, he said. "I
shall now have Hie Inner of introducing to your notice a little sketch
after the manner of the Inte .fohn
Parry." Tlie words wi.j scarcely ont
of his mouth when a gentleman in
the body  of  thi  hall rose  with  the
emphatic remark, "No, Tm el tl if
yo.i wil' " It was Parry himself, who
not unnaturally objected to heing
classed unionc those win had gone
over to tlie great majority.
Mr. Grossmith met his wife, who
died in 1005, when they were hoth
young. She wns ill fnr 14 months,
anel Mr. Grossmith had to sacriliee
all long-distance engagements to he
near her. "Slip kept my little list by
her, and constantly nske" me why 1
was not in Scotland or in Ireland or
up North, as th" case may liave been.
I had to excuse myself by white lies,
hy saying that it wns suggested that
I should go later on in thfl season;
and so I went on nnyii.ii forfeitures
everywhere, for without the slightest
affectation 1 may honestly say I
would rather have sacrificed the loss
of thousands of pounds by being near
Inr than hy gaining double the
amount hy heing away from h'\r. 1
have never regretted my action; it
I has been a grent comfort t - me. We
I wire little more tliun children when
we first met, and ever since that time
she wns my hest adviser nnd my most
Ifnithful nml Incomparable friend."
One of   tlie best stories   ever told
about Grossmith had to 7* with some
correspondence lie once had with tli i
Income   Tax   Commissioners'.      Long
. nfter liis father's death GeoTge received a "first notice" from the income
I tax people, assessing his (the father's)
j income at $10,01)0.    Taking tlie inter-
jesting document, George wrote across
jthe faee of it:    "I  nm glad to learn
I that my father is doing so well in the
I next   world;   $10,000   is a geiod   deal
I more than lie ever   earned   in   this.

that   whereas $100   a week   wa3   the
I highest fee he ever received at the
Savoy,  he  cleared   $50,000   during  a

But under these conditions the air
does not rise vertically because Ibe ulr

Farewell, great painter of mankind.
Who reached the nohlest point of art.
Whoso pictured morals charm the mind
And through lim eye correct the heart!

If neither move Hire turn away,

A   GARDEN   CITY.
This is May Day and everybody's
thoughts are turning to youth and
flowers, ar.d greenery aud all the
beauties of a reawakened natute. Today we celebrate tho spirit of spring
ttla-hew, tho spirit that makes the
lambs skip ""d the city fathers wear
silk hr ES and joyously pay homage to
a little fflrl of twelve years of ago,
today in ' verj- truth their mistress,
for does she not. symbolize the gay
pervading sentiment of all.
What doe.* this May Day ceremony
teach us? Surely It teaches the part.
played by beauty in the lives ot man.
In a business community a man is always too apt to forget the importance of artistic surroundings and lt
was us Ith pleasure that, we be:trd
Mayor Lee the other evening appealing to the Progress Club to take up
the question of gardens in tbc city.
He said very truly that the time
spent by a man on liis garden had a
wonderful effect in making him a
happy, contented citizen and a good
home man.. Not only do the work
and interest take a man's mind oft
his work and give him that needed
leisure that is behind all gnod work,
but the fact that be is moving intimately among the beauties of nature
gives him a serener outlook and a
power to spe the tilings of this world
in true proportions. It teaches bim
tbat a dollar is sometimes not as important aifian hour of happiness, and
that a bed of crocuses may play as
great a Wt"fo* the scheme of things
aa a new patent. "God is in gardens," sang one poet, and there is,
ho -ftatffct t��t*-tio was very near tbe |
truth. ' I
Ot course there ls anot'. or side to
this question ol gaid"ns, a business]
side. Victoria's gardens are her best
advertisement. Everybody gcej to
see Victoria because shs is beaut'fu*.
Westminster on the other hand his
much to reproach herself with along
this line. Some of her citizens go to
great trouble to keep a nice garden,
but on the very ne.\t lot tliere may-
live some careless or slovenly person
that does nothing to Improve hia
piece of lnncj, and the result is thai
tbe whole, effect along the street li
bad. As themayor said it is very little trouble; and very little exyensa t*>
boy a few seeds, rake a bed or two,
plant a la'.n and put tho wliola garden in surh siaj e that it ia a thing
of beauty Instead of a barren patch of
nnti Iy va*. ney. This year, May Dty
has assumed an Importance U has
never had b's'fcre. Let its effect bj
lasting. Let it be a day of determination for every owner of a home to
make a niro garden and to do his
part townitjs malting Westminster 'a

��� MERRY MAY DAY. ���

It is May. Out In thc suburbs and
in tbe city too In this early morning,
tbere is a rim of white front on the
shingle roofs and on tho sidewalks.
There is "a nipping and an eager air,"
W>ut the rosy dawn gives promise of
a fine day. die green und gold clou's
are spread In streaks along the hori*
zen and the grey overhead is flecked
ami dappled with white clouds. A
mist is rising from the ground and as
the sum climbs tbe heavens there
will be warmth und liglit whic'i
will gladden tbe heart, of Westminster, and otber places where they
keep May Day as lt shoul.I be kept,
nnd crown their Queen of May. As
it should be kept ? Yes ! there are
eome customs not "more hrnored in
the breach than iu tbe observance"
and tills is one of them.
"Time doth consecrate and what Is
gray with age becomes religion.'1 The
festivals of May Day have antiquity
enough almost to lift them to the
rank of religious ceremonies.
May should be a montli of rejoicing and there Is nct'iing like a good
beginning. As the festivals of May
are Inspired by the face of Nature,
tliey are us old as any we have on
record. "May customs," says an old
monkish writer, "are gra'ulitions cf
the spring to testify universal Joy at
the revival of vegetation." Surely
here in Hritish Columbia we should
keep May Day for once spi lng starts
tbe vegetables here, you cin almost
bear them grow.
Let us have a Queen of tbe Mi'y by
all means.   We ari no t'alters io an
How each field turns a street, each
stieet a park
Made green and trimmed with trees."
Let that song be true of the whob
lower mainland. We are getting rid
of the forest, but let ua remember its
glories and garland our doors with
leaves as they did when
"Happy wns the age antl harmless
were the days in the good old long

Let Me Know What
You Think of This���
Will You?
A client came in yesterday and said: "Mr. Kerr, I've got to
raise some money, and get out of town immediately. You know
my three lots on the corner of Royal Avenue, Dufferin and Alice
Street" ?
"Yes," I said, "They are worth about $13,000 or $14,000."
"All Right," he replied, I will take an even $10,000 for them
if you can get me the money within three days."
Now that is such a good proposition that I can arrange a loan
of $7000 on the property, for anybody that wants to buy it. So if
you have $3000 you can have $13,000 worth of property on the best
corners in town, and pay the balance of $7000 almost any way you
want to.
The description of the lots is as follows:
* Corner of Dufferin Street, Royal Avenue and Alice Street,
three large lots, each 66 feet by 132 feet and having a frontage of
one hundred and ninety-eight feet on Royal Avenue; one hundred
and thirty-two feet on Dufferin Street, and one hundred and ninety-
eight feet on Alice Street. Cleared, with large eight roomed thoroughly modern house, with full sized cement basement, cement
floor, furnace, fire-place, etc.; about thirty fruit trees on property;4
excellent apartment house site, facing on the car-line; good magnificent view af Fraser river; only a few minutes walk to Post
Office.   Price for three days $10,000, for the three lots���$3000 down

Big    Four    In    Panic���Kennedy    Up
Against It���End of D. L. A. in
Sbht.
Ottawa, May 2.���Lacrosse history
will likely be made n\ today's meeting of the National Union in Montreal. Tbe desertion of Cameron, Lalonde and Phelan from tbe Canadian
team and the probability of Lalonde
Jumping his Toronto contract an:l fol
lowing them to the c-ast, lias caused
it panic, so to speak, ln the Big Four.
With the opening of the season
only two weoks distant, Kennedy now
finds himself witli only live or six
players. He has counted on the Cornwall boys and was frantic yesterday
In ills efforts to close with Pringle
and Shea, of tbe Capitals. From
Montreal, however, comes a rumor to
the effect that the Nationals realize
that Kennedy is up against it, and
that to protect their own interests,
tbey have decided to Jump back to
the National Union. The Nationals
would be taken" buck, but the gates
are prematurely close 1 to the Torontos and Tecumsehs and the desertion of tiie Nationals would undoubtedly terminate the brief but stormy
existence of the Dominion association.
Officers of the Nationals denied the
story, but It is evident that something
is biewing. A despatch from Cornwall
lust night states that Lalonde would
certainly return to the roast.

Silence, llltborto wben I bud been

The London industry whieh employs
Devonshire and Japanese seaweed in
I' the manufacture of such diverse objects as cloth, stout shoes, golf balls,
policemen's boots, picture frames,
marhlud floors and electric switchboards, by no menus monopolizes its
uses. In Cornwall seaweed is used as
a fertilizer for tiie lund, in France
it finds utility ns a stiffener for mattresses and a size for straw huts. The
native fishermen of South Australia
make ropes and fishing nets from local  varieties.
Iodine, a chemical of great medicinal value, claims seaweed as its
principal source. The production ol
"kelp," or burned seaweed, which is
the first stage in its preparation, is
an industry that is rapidly developing in northwestern Kurope. Tlie
hardy kelp burners of tbe Hebrides
and Irish coast have now strong rivals

from this work already exceeds that
derived from fishing and agriculture.
In America it has been found to be

Curb Drokers Now Operai
The curb brokers of New Yoik, wbo
now  operate on   llrond  street,   would
bave been forced to couduct their business from gondolas or cnnnl boats Iind
they made use of that thoroughfare In
��� early days, for where solid  pnvement
now stands there was a wide canal.
Many people nowadays, wandering
through tho uarrow streets of lower
Manhattan, have woudered ut llrond
Street's unusual wldlb. Still more pe
cullnr was sucb breadth of thoroughfare la the olden times, when Streets
were nearly oil narrow, and to distinguish It from the alley-like byways
that surrounded it tbe tborciigbfare
wns referred to as "tbe broad Ftreet."
The Dutch colled lt the "Deere Graft"
(The latter word bad a fur different
meaning in those days.) lt was not at
first a street, but the principal cnnol
of the city. This canal, wide enough
for heavy boats to pass eacb other,
ran Into Broad street at the southern
end ond continued nortb almost to
Wall street. A similar but smaller canal ran through Beaver street.
I'eter Btuyvesant In 1057 bad tba
-canal's sides planked, and a few decades Inter the waters were gradually
replaced by a street
As that street perforce followed the
canal's former lines. It was much tbe
widest thoroughfare In all lower Manhattan nnd well merited Its uame of
Broad street Had New Vork real es
tate been worth one-twentieth as much
then as st present Broad street would
probably have been shaved dowu to
the width of Nnssau or Wall street-

A hard drinker was informed by his

Chinese Officials Helpless.
Shanghai, May 2.���The abserc" of
��� J government and the flight of the officials in the China   amine area ha\e
added  much  to the  distress   of  the
people.
In previous years the officials, who
are called    fathers    of their people
have in   many cases done   much   to
help although in general  there   has
been   an   almost   unbelievable   beart-
lessness.    The favorite official  method of relieving famine conditions hat-
been to decapitate  starving men fo
petty theft of the little they needed
o keep soul and hody together.   This,
however,   at   least   maintained    soin
semblance of order in previous years.
This year there are no officials abl
to maintain older or to help even a
little.
In addition to this, tlle flight of I lie
o��i(i^is and wealthier classes has
left without any means of support
many 'Iioused s who weie dependent
upon them.
Thus, in one small city, the scat o'
tbe     county     government,    out     of
\ twelve   hundred   families   eight   hu-i-
I dred  wore connected    In   Boms  way
\ with the Yame'i and are now on the
verge of starvation.
This is only ono of many phases
of the calamity in China this yen:-,
i'nd all seems to work together to
ud I to the misery of tlie unfortunate
people in thp famine regions. Please
send your contribution to the Rod
Cross  society.
