meters swimming back, stroke respectively. England won the greatest race
of the Olympic so far���the 1500
meters run, in which the Oxonian,
Jackson, broke the record by more
tban six seconds. Finland won the
5000 meters In a splendid struggle
against France, while the Canadian,
Hodgson, brought glory to the Dominion by hts victory In the 1509 swimming contest in which he bung up
three records.
Perhaps never before have there
been two such contests as the 5000
meter aud 1500 meter runs on the
same day.
Wonderful Performance.
The 1500 meter race furnished one
ef the greatest thrills ot the meeting.
A harder struggle has seldom been
���een ��� n the cinder path, ln order to
get to the front, Jackson, who was
fifth rrom the pole, had Vo run around
four men on the last lap, which he
did at the 11 nai turn.
Until the leaders were within ten
yards of the tape the event might
have belonged either to Jackson or
to Kiviat. but the Oxford man fairly
leaped ahead and carried off the victory.
Arnaud, the Frenchman, and the
three Swedes, J. Sander, E. Bjorc
and K. Wide, made the running in the
first lap- E. Von Slgel, Germany,

The hopM of the Americans ran Ugh
when they saw that Jackson, whom
all feared, was eight feet behind the

the lap the Briton began to sain and
continued hie spurt to the finish.
Of Running Breed.
Jackson Is an exceedlngi:' pale
youth of live feet 11 Inches and looks
far more a scholar tban an athleto.
Ills victory wlll be ffistorfc in the
annals cf athletic sports aa one of
the greatest - features ever seen on
the running track. As soon as be
came to, he asked a friend to telegraph hie success to his mother.
Jackson is the nephew of tbe famous Old lime Oxford runner, C. N.

In forty-seven constituencies there
are straight party fights with no third

V'onda there is no Conservative cas-

have indorsed an Independent, J.
Wright. The Liberals claim Wright
will, if elected, support this riding.
There is also a second Independent in
the field, a French-Canadian named
P. Larew. Outside of carrying Mie
solid vote of the small French colony,
he is not considered a serious contender.
Impossible to Predict.
Vonda is almost entirely foreign
and no one would pretend to predict
what might happen. In Arm River
there is a three-cornered fight wtth
two Liberals In tbe field, George
Scott, a cousin of the premier, aad

Lloydminster there is a grain growers' candidate, A. S. Langton, lu the
fleld as well as straight Liberal and
Conservative nominees. There is a
strange situation In Canora where a
Galician, Hike Gabora, is running.
There is a large Gallclan vote and

pleasure it gave him to make his first
official visit to Winnipeg on the hundredth anniversary of Ixird Selkirk's
settlers.
Honor the Pioneers.       "v
"These settlers," he said, "were the
first wave of civilisation which lapped
against the shores of Manitoba, and
to them you owe part of the debt oi
gratitude for the security and wealth
you now enjoy. They and other pioneers who came after them first carved out the rough road which led tc
the reaches of the west. Do not forget them, but give from time to time
to these courageous men and women
who first showed to the world what
lay beyond the Great Lakes the credit
due them."

Conisbrough, Eng., July 10.���The
bodies of 75 victims of a series of explosions iu the Cadeby Colliery yesterday morning have been brought in the
surface. It is feared that a further
search of .the mine will increase tl\e
death roll to 80.
Of the killed, thirty were mine
workers, the others were men who
went into the pits to rescue those entombed. Among these are three government inspectors, including William
Henry Pickering, chief inspector" of
mines, Yorkshire and North Midland
district.
The visit of King George and Queen
Mary to the district greatly minimised the fatalities. The miners were
celebrating and were taking a holiday. Therefore, instead of the usual
136, only 32 men were working In thjit
part of the mine where the accident
happened. Thirty of these were killed outright and one, the manager of
the pit, was brought up alive but died
later. " j
The first explosion which killed the
miners occurred early in the morning. It was followed by an explosion
about 5 o'clock in the afternoon In
which resulted the collapse of the
roof, overwhelming the rescue brigade. The king and queen visited the
scene last night and personally expressed their sympathy.
Pickering was one of the greatest
authorities on mining. He received
the Albert medal in 1910 for gallan-
,try in similar rescue work after a colliery accident near Leeds.

suits���Plucky Driver.
North Vancouver, July 10.���Two
firemen of No. 1 station were thrown
from their wagon yesterday while on
an exciting run in responding to a
false alarm.
The engine and men came alon*
Fourth street at a hard gallop, and
when turning down Lonsdale avenue
they were signalled to pull up. On
the application of the brakes, however, the headway strain proved too
strong, breaking a connection. The
weight of the wagon on the down
grade drove the horses at a gallop toward the ferry gates. Two of the men
were thrown off, but suffered only-
slight injuries.
Driver Shannon stuck to the reins
and while nearing the ferry approach
averted disaster by swerving the
horses round and bringing them to a
standstill.
Vancouver, July 10.���Beginning
from today the timber department of the Provincial Government
will issue an entirely new system of
private marks for lumbermen, cancelling the old marks as fast as the new
marks are given out. In order to put
the new system into practice, and to
see that it is properly enforced, the
department this afternoon despatched
Inspector William Black on the government launch R. J. Skinner for
Knight's and Bute Inlets, with instructions to visit all the lumber
camps in the north. Capt. Nye was
also despatched on a similar errand
on the department's launch Kiora,
with instructions to visit the camps
at Jarvis Inlet, Texada Island, Hornby, Denman's and otber islands in the
vicinity.
The new system is designed to render less difficult the task of distinguishing the logs cut on licenses,
leases, crown grants, etc., and to
show which logs are eligible for export and which are not. At present
the larger lumber' companies are cutting on all manner of grants, leases
and licenses, and mark all their log3
with the same mark, no matter from
which source the logs come. This
causes great confusion, as the royalties and privileges vary with the various forms of leases and licenses, ar.d
the department have to largely depend on the word of the companies'
employees given on affidavit as to the
origin of tho various classes of logs.
Chief Inspector G. D. McKay
today stated that of crown grants
there are three varieties, the old
crown grants issued prior to 1887, a
later series issued from 1887 to 1906,
and the new series of crown grants
issued since 1906. Timber cut under
the old crown grants pays no royalties and can be exported as logs on
payment of a graduated tax running
from $1 to $4 per thousand, according to quality. Under the intermediate series of crown grants, all timber cut pays royalties, and logs can
be exported on payment of a tax of
50 cents a thousand. Under the crown
grants issued since 1906, royalties are
exacted on all timber, cut, and the export of logs is strictlv prohibited.
By the new system of letters and
numbers, lt will be possible not only
to know who is the owner of the timber but also to tell at a glance
whether it cut under a timber license
a lease, an old crown grant, an intermediate crown grant or a new crown
erant For instance, if the code number 6. all of its logs ^t under a license would have to marked A 6, an
cu? under leasehold would be marked
6A; all under an old c.own grant A
Ith a crescent mark under tbe letters, and all on intermediate crown
Brants ta t* with a bar under the letters. 1
The marltliiKB -win ttiwo <������> be pul
on the timbers at the B1CC6 -where thf
logs are cut. ln this a jo u l-t expected 'that disputes will b~ quilted, a d
the work of the department in collecting royalties and in watching the ex
j port of logs will be simplified.

Regina, Sask., July 10���Charges
and counter charges and arrests and
counter arrests are marking the closing days of the bitterest campaign -r.
the history of Saskatchewan elections,
feeling running high and both BidiB
are confidently claiming victory.
As a matter of fact, both sides arc
nervous concerning the result and
frankly admit lt is impossible to size
up the situation. >
The constituencies along the main
line of the Canadian Paciflc railroad
are bitterly contested. The Liberals
claim that the districts wbich were
so overwhelmingly for reciprocity last
September will remain trne t*-'- ���he
government and are counting on
northern .and central Saskatchewan
as their strongholds. No one can toll
until the night of July 11 and the election ls closed. Many are predict ng
the result may not be kai.vn for w.v-
eral days.
Both sides are autijip.ilttg ironMe
on election day and arc preparing Ier
stormy scenes at the polls. Both parties are calling upon their workers to
arrest all impersonators and heelers.
The Regina Province in an editorial
today actually calls upon the electors
to arm themselves. The Province
says:
"Conservatives must arm and protect the polls. Don't bestitate to
knock in the head one ot Calder's
crooks. They are nothing but a band
of heelers, hirelings and criminals secured to terrorize the electors. Be
sure that punishment inflicted is sufficient to put these crooks out of business for the day,
"The attorney-general's department
has ceased to administer justice. It is
making a reign of terror in this province. Conservatives must protect
themselves. Smash every crook, who
attempts it. There is no law in Sa��
katchewan, but there wlll be after
July 11.
"Don't hestltate to hit the crooks
and see that the blow Is sufficient 10
put this gang out ot business."
FIGHTING   JOE.
Backs Labor Candidate Against Own
Party.
London, July 10.���One of the most
prominent figures in the Hanley bye-
election campaign is Joseph Martin,
M. P., who is supporting the labor
candidate as a protest against his own
party attempting to filch that seat
from the Laborities. The labor party
held the seat, but on a vacancy occurring, the Liberal executive determined to put a candidate in the fleld
following which a three-corned flght
has developed, with much bitterness
between the two sections of the government supporters.
Labor members ln the House of
Commons threaten to abstain from
party divisions aa a protest against
the Liberal executive, and conceivably this might place the government
in a very embarrassing position. Joe
Martin, with his characteristic enthusiasm for the weaker cause, bas snapped his fingers at his party managers
and thrown himself heart and soul into this sectional campaign.
At the last general election the vote
was Labor 4658, Unionist 4658, a de
crease of 300 in the Labor majority.

KING AS MINER        \\
PICKS OUT COAL
His    Majesty    Thoroughly    Explores
yYorkings of Pit���Undaunted by
Recent Disaster.
London, July 10.���For the flrst time
in history, a British monarch yesterday descended into a coal pit. It was
the Elsecar mine that was favored, almost within a stone's throw of the pit
where so many lives had been lost,
and the king went dowu in the full
knowledge of the Cadebv disaster.
His Majesty descended ihe shaft ln
a cage, with him being the Archbishop of York, Lord FitzRllliam, Lord
Charles Beresford, an.l a man in
charge of the cage.
The man duly asked the king lf he
had any matches or tmoklng materials, and when His Majesty admitted
the possession ot a few cigars and
asked whether he might take those,
the man said:

IMPERIAL  DRUMMER.
Kaiser Suggests that Russia Give
Germany  Shipbuilding  Orders.
Berlin, July 10.���Telegrams from
Itu--sia to German newspapers describe the characteristic enterprise
which the kaiser showed on behalf of
German shipbuilders during his visit
to the czar at Baltic Port. His Majesty has been a notorious drummer
for the German dockyards. He is especially anxious to obtain from the
South American republics contracts
for the building of warships here.
While hobnobbing with the czar,
the kaiser is described as having been
particularly cordial to the Russian
naval minister, Admiral Grigorc-
wltsch and openly suggested, it is asserted, that Germany ought to get a
liberal slice of orders for the huge
new Russian naval program.
"Look at my battle cruiser Moltke,"
said the kaiser, pointing to the great
vessel which accompanied him to the
Baltic. "If you wish, we could build
you six Moltkes ln the shortest possible space ot time.

BU31NESS FOR ALL.
If there remained the least doubt in
the minds of any of the ratepayers of
Westminster as to the good achieved
by the visit of Mayor Lee and the
secretary of tho Progressive Association to the recent Panama convention
at Calgary, this would now be dispelled by a perusal of the report of the
proceedings of the Vancouver Bcarj
of Trade on Tuesday evening.
.Mr. E. H. Heaps, who it will be remembered, was chairman < [ that
memorable gathering, told the Vancouver board cn that occasion, that
the feeling in Calgary among thc representatives of the prairie provinces
Avas that Vancouver had not done lta
part in providing for the shipments of
.grain which must come to the Pacific coast to find on outlet ile also
paid a tribute to the success there
achieved by Mayor l/ee, with his
maps and plans and his story of the
vast harbor developments which the
people of this city have endorsed.
Professor   Odium  also  commented
In a thousand years the important
things of life havo not changed. The
man who brings up his children to be
useful citizens and a credit to their
parents is still greater than he who
taketh a city or builds a transcontinental railway. Men and women nowadays are not alfogeter free from the
idea that children will bring themselves up somehow, and that business,
pleasure and social duties are the real
essentials of- life, that they must be
looked after even at the expense of j
the children.
Parents' duties to their children are
not discharged when they aro well
fed. well clothed, and sent regularly
to school. Children have a right to
demand something more of their parents than the mere provision of food
and clothing. They have a right to
(���.demand some of their thought and attention, their companionship and their
sympathy. Too often they are denied
these birthrights, aud some day the
father and mother may be shocked at
some crime, or some other desperate
act that reveals as In a flash ot light
ning the fact that the son Is a stranger to hia father, that the mother
knows little of her daughter.
The attempt of a 13-year-old bov to
commit suicide may be explained ln
many ways, none of them discreditable to his parents, but if boys had
more cf their fathers' compnnlonshii
their C&thcra would have more ot
'heir boys' confidence. Troubles tha'

in the history of Winnipeg, Their
Royal Highnesses the Duke of Connaught and Princess Patricia arrived
i here last night. The streets were

special C. P. R. train bearing the
duke and princess and party arrived
at 8:30 o'clock. The royal visitors
were driven to the City Hall, where
Mayor Waugh extended a welcome.
ln replying the duke expressed regret that the duchess had been unable
to share in the reception. "It is difficult for me," he said, "to recognjze
the Winnipeg which 1 knew twenty-
'wo years ago in the Winnipeg of to-
lay, for your history has moved very

CANADA  AND,THE WEST INDIES.
Public opinion  ih  Canada  will  approve the proposed agreement for reciprocal    preferential   trade    between
i'anada and the  British   Wesl  Indian
islands, as published  in  the issue of
The World.     Their products are sufficiently diverse to be really complementary and the islands fall naturally
within  the   scope   of Canadian   influence and endeavor.    The only Islands
not   represented   at   the   conference
were Jamaica and the  Bahamas, and
the  reason  for their absence can  no |
doubt be found in their disinclination j
to disturb their market in the United
States.        Nevertheless,    should     the
agreement be ratified by the governments concerned  an opportunity  will
be offered them for three years to join
in the preferential arrangement. Newfoundland is included in this, b.:l the
bulk   of  the   products   affected    will
scarcely appeal to ita people.      Newfoundland should I)   dealt with by an
independent agreement
The arrangements will have to be
ratified by the legislatures of Canada
and the West Indian colonies and the
terms must be either accepted or rejected. Thc reason for this, in the
case of the West Indies Islands, is
sound. There muRt be uniformity in
such an agreement since it would be
inconvenient and indeed impossible to
work out were the Islands to have different sets ofucqistoms rates. The
delegates from fWp,West Indies were
full of confidence regarding the outcome of the movement for preferential trade relations, more especially In

Victoria, July 10.���Views as to
what part Canada should take :i
naval defence were expressed by Sir
Donald Mana in an interview heie
last night.
Sir Donald says he would have Can-
ida make an    immediate   grant    for
construction  of a  number of vessels,
vs many as the admiralty might sug-
est, these ships to constitute a Canadian squadron placed in the service
jf the Hoyal Navy.   For a permanent
.iclicy, Canada, he says, should create
I leet units to be stationed on the Ai-
I antic and  Pacific at  the call of tn
' idmlralty,   The construction  of dry-
locks on both   coasts, together   with
he establishment   of steel shipbuild-
ng  industries,   should   go   hand    tc
hand with the creation of fleet uniis.
so that   eventually the   vessels   con:
prising these   shall   be built   in  Ca.i-
ida.
His third suggestion, whereby Canada may have a voice in imperial
councils, is to make the colonial coherence a permanent organization.
The personnel of such a body should.
ie believes, be always resident in
London, ready to advise overseas parliaments on questions of vital import-
mce to the Empire.

BALMORALS ROPE
Westminster Daily    News    Is    Determined to Clean  Up British
Columbian Stars.
Hyland and    McCarty Will    Perform
Against Maple Leafs Tomorrow
Nlnht.
Although the matter has been kept
a dejul secret by the magnates who
own the Balmoral baseball team, and
who;.' divide the gate receipts at the
ball-yard, it ls learned that Harry
\ Hyland and McCarty have signed a
contract which calls for their appearance at Queens park on Friday evening when the BalB meet the Maple
Leafs once again In the pennant race
of the city league.
Although ilelliiite information is
lacking at a late hour last evening, it
is satd that these two ex-Shamrock
stars made a name for themselves
with the Montreal International nine
under Manager Lush, but the balmy
climate of ths Pacific coast combined
with a fat contract from Manager
Gray, of the Salmon Bellies, made
them pick up their belongings , and
board an Imperial Limited for the
Itoyal City.
Naturally there should be a good
crowd out at Friday's game to see
the new players perform, and the
question for Manager Chockley to answer Is "What are you going to do
about it?"
Intermediate Lacrosse Tonight.
East Burnaby and West Ends will
clash this evening on the Queens park
oval. Although the suburbanites are
-out of the running for the championship they are making a bid for second place and should put up a great
game, lf the West Ends win this
evraing It will still give them a
chance to beat Sapperton. An effort
will be made to start the game on
time, viz., 6:30 o'clock.
The great ball game between the
teams of the Westminster Daily News
and the British Columbian haa been
finally arranged to be staged on the
scenic enclosure at Queens park on
Monday evening next.
Mr. Maiden, who appears in the
public limelight as manager of various teams, railroaded a deal through
yesterday by means of which he will
attempt to, bring victory to his band
of sluggers', (alleged). Just what excuse he ma^e, regarding the poor exhibitions the Balmorals have been
making recently will probably never
be known outside the office of the
afternoon contemporary, but suffice lt
to say, the night hawks have an aggregation on paper which Bhould clean
off the map anything this aforesaid
Maiden has the temerity to trot out
before the public.
This is the probable line-up of the
morning sheet, although all rights are
reserved to change same without

Cameron had his hands full watching
the progress of the battle, but several
of the players got away with some

Elson and Cameron were particularly noticeable, while Corbett got a
nasty gash on the head from the stick
of Johnson while the latter was in
the act of scoring. Corbett had to

Rl<(| Increase In Consumption of Drink
and   Smoke In  Canada.
Ottawa,   Ont.,   July    10.���An    enor
mous increase in the consumption by
Canadians   of   liquors,   cigars,   cigarettes and  tobacco of all  kinds is the
outstanding feature  of statistics  just
compiled by the department of inland
revenue.    The increased consumption
of cigarettes is particularly great, notwithstanding the fight which is being
waged against their use.    While 575,-
935,770 wero smoked in 1911, 782,663,-
841 were consumed this vear, making
the Increase   rf   276,527,771 which   is
quite startling.
The tollowini; figures for both years
ending March 31, tell the whole storv
of the increase of consumption, both
in tobacco and liquors:
1911. per capita (liquors), spirit gallons, 859: beer, gallons, 6434: wine,
galons, 104: tobacco, pounds. 3011.
1912, pnirits, gallons. 1030; beer.
gallons, 6598: wines, gallons, 114; tobacco, pounds, 3679.
Cigarette ronsumption for year ending March 31. 1911: 575.935,770; cigar consumption. 227.385,692.
For vear ending March 31. 1912:
Cigarettes consumed, 782,663,841; cigars, 252.718,242.
It ls Interesting to note, however,
that the Increase per capita is not so
great as the figures given above
would indicate because of the fact
that last vear's per capita calculation
was based upon the estimated population given by the census department
and which was 5,901,000 while this
year it is baKf>d on the actual figures
which place the population at 7,423,-
4100, almost half a million less.

DREAM OF ISRAEL
DIDN'T LIKE TO BJRRDW.
IS SOME  DAY TO RETURN  TO
THE HOLY LAND.
Israel Zangwill, the Great Anglo-Jewish Author, Who Has Struggled
Hard to Reach His Present Pinnacle Is an Ardent Leader In the
Zionist Movement��� He was Born
In Poverty and Rose to Fame.
A notable Jew once took his small
eon to the House oi Commons, and
introducing him to Disraeli, asked the
latter to speak some word by which
the little chap should remember him.
"Boy," said the veteran statesman,
"boy, remember this: you and I belong to a race which can do anything
but fail!" It was a fine message from
Jew to Jew. That boy might have
lieen Israel Zangwill, for the latter
has the profoundest faith in the race
oi which he is so brilliant a member.
Two thousand years of association
with the western world has failed to
divest the Jewish mind of its old Ori-
ental fatalism, and belief in signs and
manifestations, and an incident that'
attended the infancy of Mr. Zangwill
colored his faith and that ol his relative in the propitious possibilities ol
his destiny.
It was while he was very young that
his poverty-stricken mother spared a
few pence from her scanty store to
hire a girl to look after him while she
made a pious pilgrimage, on the day
of Atonement, to the little synagogue
at which she worshipped. The girl
employed for the day was a Christian
visionary, and the mother, feeling
strangely uneasy, quitted the synagogue during the sirvice and returned
to her home. She found the girl in
the street, and was assured that the
child was sleeping peacefully in its
-cradle.
But the mother insisted on entering the house. There she found her
little son screaming on his cot, his
head covered with a pillow, his face
hlack, and his mouth filled with blood.
The girl confessed that, in revenge
for the death of Christ she had prick
ed a bloody sign of the Cross upon the   to have some profit on it too.   Now,
So   He   Made   a  Cheerful   Proposition
That   Was   Promptly   Vetoed.
Mr. Dunham bad just finished his
morning chores at the barn and was
going in to breakfast when Brigg.s,
the man who had bought tho neighboring Alden farm, appeared. He was
a genial person, with a well padded
waistcoat and an engaging smile. Mr.
Dunham had met him a day or two
before at the postofflce, but had not
been favorably impressed.
"Morning!" said the newcomer
briskly.
"Morning!"  said  Mr.   Dunham.
"I'm going to be neighborly right
away," declared Briggs, with an air
of simple frankness. "I want to borrow your wood sled for tlie day. I've
had no time to get settled yet, and
there's so much to do I don't know
which way to turn, hardly. But I've
got to get some wood down, and I
want to do it while hauling's good."
"That's all right," said Mr. Dunham. "Take it and welcome. It's out
there under the shed."
Briggs was back in half an hour
with a yoke of scrawny steers and
went off with the sled. Mr. Dunham
heard him come into the yard with it
that evening after supper and found
it in it proper place in the morning.
A day or two later the new neighbor
came again. This time he had the oxen with him. He riooded cheerfully
as he passed the house and, remarking casually, "I s'pose it's all right
to take the sled a<;ain?" hitched up.
This time lie kept it two days.
A week later he came when Mr.
Dunham was away and, whistling
merrily as he yoked his steers, drove
off without question. Dunham waited four days and then had to go after
the sled himself.
On the next occasion when the new
neighbor called he found Mr. Dunham milking. Leaning against the
stanchion, with his hands in his pockets, he began

.R. STEWART was called to tbe
telephone the other nlgbt," said
a friend, "to hear a cheerful
voice announce:
" 'On zhe way down to sbee you,
doc!   Got fine case tremens.'
"Dr. Stewart recognized the voice as
that of a rather well to do young man
who hnd made several previous trips
to Bellevue. He expressed over the
telephone his strong regrets tbat he
should be again bothered by tbe anticipant visitor.
" "Thash a' rl". doc,' said the voice
through the phone. Tm goin'co���ble���

a cab rattled ln through the receiving
gate and an annoyed driver helped out
tbe telephoning person. By this time
he was speechless. Tbe driver dragged
bim inside.
'"We shtopped at a wild animal
shtore,' said the driver srfurly. That's
why we're late. The stew here bought
u lot of horned toads and gartersnakes
and things.'
" 'But what for?' asked Dr. Stewart.
" 'He said he whs tbryln' to help

wouldn't tie able to shpenk by the

tongue of the little Jew.
After his escape from death at the
hands of a maniac, the parents believed in the future of their little one,
and he himself, since his mother told
him the story, has never ceased to
ehare their optimism. Scott, who had
an equally miraculous escape from the
clutches of a murderous nurse, bad
the same belief in his future.
But  whatever   may   have  lieen   his
jjdreituis   as  to   the   fate   in   store   for
ni, young Israel Zangwill had a bit-
r struggle for a  place in the  sun.
rn  in   London,   of  miserably   poor
Wish   parents   he   was  schooled   at
lymouth and Bristol   ar.d   then,   in
pen  competition   won  a scholarship
at the Jew9' Free School in  London,
where, they say. he was the brightest
lupil that  ever  entered  the   school.
He won every prir.e lor which he entered, as   much by  slavish   Industry
-es by indisputable genius.   There wa'
grinding poverty in his home, and bis
ante   ambition   wa*   swift'.y   to  equip
himself so that he might bring money
and more food and clothes into thai
home.    He felt himself fitted for tbe
task, because he was the ugly duckling
vt the  family   in  so  far as  personal
appearance    is    concerned.    A    good
looking Jew. he tells you, is consider
ed  the  fool  uf the  family.
At the end of his school days proper.
he became a pupil teacher, first at his
-old school and afterwards in W hi tech aj el. Truly, he knows the Chettii
of which he has written. After what
he describes as "Uie hellish torture ol
a day's teaching," he ground away at
higher tasks, and studied for his degree, which he obtained at London
University, with honors in French,
English, and in Mental and Moral
Science.
But wilh all his tremendous toil,
lie had a brave and gay young heart
Tinder his shabby exterior. He com
posed a rampageous two-volume novel
ol his school days, and at sixteen he
fell In love with the art of J. L. Toole
and vowed to do him a good turn. He
wrote a three-act farce, took it unde:
his arm, and went off to Itamsgate
with it, not with certain hope, hut tin
theory that the comedian might pos
sibly be there. He loitered slu-ut nn
the sands hoping that the Hon of
humor would turn up to be hlessen
with the farce. But he did not ap
pear, and that farce has not yet been
acted. 8" Israel went back to hi-
work, and studied and tsuyllt until
his sou! was faint within him. Then
he turned his back on school life and
plunged into journalism as seedy am.
needy a young Jew as ever wooed the
ftony heart of Fleet street. He saw
n five-guinea prize offered for a story.
eijtsred the competition, and won the
pri7.e, and kept his five guineas fur
two years���with a fixed purpose. He
wrote a Jewish story, and paid the
live guineas as hnlf the cost of publishing it. Tlie story was hawked in
Whltechanel at a penny per copy, and
it raised Jewry against him. But when
he rnine to write "Children of the
Ghetto" he turned up that old pennyworth, and used ono of its chapters ns
tlie description ot the market day in
Jewry.
His first book prorer was published
in lH8d, under a nom de plume, and
in association with a compatriot. Thai
book, he says, took them a year ot
two to write; for a year it was con
statu ly being refused by publishers,
and when it did come out the "Athenaeum" spoke better of it than ol
anything that he has since written!
Mr. Zangwill is one of the lew Jew*
who are proud to acknowledge theit
nationality. The rest of the world, be
says, do not understand the Jew*.
We are not admitted into their family circle, and tbe Jews ol fiction are
uiSreal because Jewish writers have
been afraid or ashamed to avow themselves and ti reveal the knowledge
which is In them. The avowed Jews
he considers are of the salt of the
earth, but he is unsparing ia his
treatment oi the reneged* Jew.
I tell ye what; I don't feel right bor
rowing all the time, and I'd like to
buy it.   How would $35 look to you?"
Dunham milked silently for a moment. Then he said, "Well, I guess
thirty-five would be all right."
"Good enough!" cried Briggs heartily, "it's worth that to me. I ain't
got the ready cash just now, but we
can fix it up this way: I'll take the
sled over to my place, and any time
you want to use it you come right
over ami get it, just the same as if
'twas yours. I'll keep track of it and
charge you a reasonable amount each
time you take il���say mebbe a dollar
���and when it comes to $:t5, why. the
sled'll be mine, and we'll be square.
That'll save you buying a new one,
and I'll feel better'n 'i if I was borrowing all the time. Is that all right?
What say?"

This tale  is  told  in  the  orient-.  A
lady one day found a man following
lier, and she asked  him why he did
so.    His  reply  was,   "You  are  very
beautiful,   snd   I   am   in   love   with
you."    "Oh, you  think  me  beautiful,
do   you?    Tliere   is   my   sii-ter   over
there.    You will find her much more
beautiful  than   I  am.    Go and make
love  to   her."    On   hearing   this  the
man went to see the sister, but found
she was very ugly, so he came back
in an angry in >--d and asked the lady
why   she  had  told   him  a   falsehood
She   then   answered,   "Why   did   you
tell me a falsehood?"   The man was
surprised at this accusation and asked when he had done so.   Her answer
was: "You said you loved me.   If that
had  been  true  you  would   not  have
gone to make love to another wt man."

'SCHOOL BOARD DIVIDES
INSURANCE AMONG ALL
Insurance on the various schools of
the city will be divided among all
the registered insurance companies
doing business in the city, according
to an ultimatum issued by the school
board.
Mr. A. W, Mci.eod and Secretary
White havo the adjustment In hand
and will effect the transfers with the
expiration of the policies at present
running.
grand master, William Johnson. The
next P. G. M. was Mr. Thomas Cunningham, the provincial fruit inspector, while the third was Mr. Sparling,
of Vancouver.
In all there are 72 Orange lodges
ln the province, and of these 20 are
in the lower mainland district. It is
extremely probable that three or four
more will be organized lu the country during the present year.
One thing in British Columbia to
which Orangemen point with pride ls
that over 50 per cent, of the lodges
in the province own their halls. Another distinctive characteristic is the
extent to which membership is recruited from the clergy, it being
claimed that in proportion to its
total membership there are more ministers belonging to the order than in
any other order in any province of
Canada. Seventy-five per cent, of the
Methodist ministers are members, as
well as many belonging >to the other
denominations. The grand chaplain
ls a Baptist minister.
The order in British Columbia haa
ever taken a strong stand In relation
to the liquor question. Changes have
been made in the constitution of the
grand lodge in this regard at the instigation of the members. No one engaged in the liquor trade is eligible
for membership, and lf a member
takes part in the trade he ceases to
belong to the order.
The membership has doubled In
the province during the past four
years. Last year was the banner year
In the Dominion, but it is expected
th:it 1912 will equal, it not surpass it,
in point of new members enrolled. In
British Columbia many Orangemen
give the provincial . organizer credit
due for this Increase, but Mr. White-
ley attributes the phenomenal growth
to the excellence of the principles underlying the order and to the effect
of the Ne Temere decree.
"The two principles we stand for,'
says the provincial organizer, "are the
maintenance of the Protestant religion and for perpetuating the spirit
of patriotism to the mother country."
Mr. Whiteley is an officer of the
I grand lodges ot British America, and
holds the office of grand lecturer for
the province, an office which is conferred west ot Ontario for the first
time in thirty years.
The celebration here tomorrow will
be the largest ever held in British
Columbia. Mainland lodges w"l be
represented from as far east as
itevelstoke. All the lodges on Vancouver Island will be here and, as
was expected, the lodges in the Fraser
valley will all send strong delegations.
