Mr. J. Ormesay Hearn, of J. O.
Hearn & Co., Ltd., of Vancouver, and
organizer of the' B. C. Herring Fisheries, Ltd., is ta New Westminster
trying to line up two more white
crews for his company's herring fleei
at Nanaimo. Already the bulk of the
company's fishermen, who are 'all
white men, are drawn from this city.
"Don't you employ any Japanese at
all, then V Mr. Hearn was asked.
"Not a Jap," he replied.
The herring run, said Mr. Hearn,
has begun, but is not yet very large,
ln fact he does not anticipate that
this wlll be a very big year. The
theory that the destruction of the
whales, who used to drive the little
flsb Into the harbors, has something
to do with tbe decrease In the number of herring, receives some credit
with Mr. Hearn, but he says the
whales are beginning to come back.
Mr. Hearn talked of the chances
which the white man had In the herring business. "The possibilities of
this Industry once it Is in the hands
of the whites are infinite," he said.

bis support to the councillor ln tu*
campaign for re-election at tbe coming elections. Among tbe other speakers were Councillor Todrlck himself,
and Mr. Spencer Robinson, chairman
or the school board, who Is his rival
In ward one. The hall waa crowded
and the discussion proved very lively, both candidates meeting with
support, and everybody taking an active Interest lu the proceedings:
Reeve Pound was the flrst speaker
called on by tbe chairman, Mr.
Groves, to adiiess the meeting. Thr**i
years ago, said the reeve, Soutn
Vancouver bad no sidewalks and no
pi;e line, and only three thousand
people were living in tbe municipality. Today the population waa
25,000, and hence arose many of thc
difficulties with which the- council
had to contend ln planning improvements.
Mr. Pound briefly reviewed the
history of the past three years, during which he ha:l acted as reeve, as
also the preceding four years during
which he v served as councillor
"South Vancouver has one of the best
waterworks systems on the Paciflc
coast," claimed the speaker, and he
closed his address with a eulogy of
Councillor Todrlck, who, he said, attended to business and never spoke
evil of anyone. For himself he had
to thank- ward one for tbe support*ii
had given him in the past, and be-,
fore sitting down he scored Mr.
Spencer Robinson tor.some of thei
statements that he had made at the

Good Audience at Opera  House Forgot Rigors of Winter���Evening
of Laughter.
A laughing, tumbling farce without
rhyme or reason, but none the lesj
enjoyable, is "Seven Days," whicn
was played to a good audience at
the opera house last night. The cast
was excellent, and the play went with
a merry swing to the accompaniment
of continual laughter. Tubby Mc
Ourk, the burglar, silent and wonder
fully appearing and disappearing,
never failed to make a hit, while the
4>art or the "wobbly" Anne Brown
with a gift for "spooks" was well
played by Miss Patriquln. In tbe first
scene this lady nearly succeeded in'
portraying an intoxicated woman
without being unpleasant, and her ad
ventures with the telephone and the
chimney were an unfailing Joy to
everybody. Mr. Aubrey Beattie made
a good James Wilson, slightly fat, but
very much in love with' his divorced
wife, while Mr^ Chauncey Monroe as
Dallas Brown, lookei after his dis
tracting spouse ln a thoroughly effective way. Miss Valentine as Kit
McNalr looked very charming, but
she was perhaps too much inclined to
leaver the matter at tbat. Mlss Robinson ��� made tbe most of ber amusing
part of Aunt Selina, whom nobody'
wasted, but' who wanted everybody to
be doing Just as she told them. Oor
don Burby scored many a laugh as
tbe much put-upon Irish police officer,
who Is cooped up with the rest of the
quarantined household, having been
asleep in the kitchen wben the
calamity descended as the boose.
In short. It may be said that the
rigors of the weather outside werp

"Seven Days" will go down to history

Sixty-three new streets had been

the remarks he had passed about the

showed that the men employed there

time he held the assessorship, and
maintained that the ratepayers could

that tbe school board bad let contracts tot four schools, one to a

has she escaped the fate of Kanauj,
\ Which once claimed suzerainty over
| her, or of Hatinapura, from which
her foupders came? The answer to
this question, like most historical
problems, is to be found upon the
| map. India has always been invaded
from the northeast. Age after age
I the hardy mountaineers of the rugged
(and unfertile central plateau of Asia
swarmed down, through the Khalbar,
upon the rich plains of the Five rivers, and there heard of even richer
lands and cities farther away to the
southwest. But to reach them there
lay but one road, and across that road
lay Delhi.
To the left of the oncoming hordes
���hordes wbkft, it must be remembered, were obliged to live entirely on
the country���the advanced spurs of
the Himalayas and deep rivers barred
the way; to their right lay the waterless deserts of Bind and Rajputna.
Only along the line of what is now
the most famous highway ln the
world, the Grand Trunk Road, there
opened out an easy and well supplied
avenue towards those other lands of
corn and wine and wealth. Moreover,
It hae always been the one point
along the route that could not safely
be left In the enemy's possession, lt
could not be passed by. So it was always around Delhi that the fiercest
storm of resistance and attack rose,
Delhi that the
the story ot the recognition of the
returned Ulysses by his dog bridges
thirty centuries in a flaah. In the
Mahabharata, the stirfdy determination of Yudhishthlra to go to Hell
with bis dog rather than enter Heaven without him strikes a common racial chord that an Englishman best,
perhaps, of all Aryans will understand today.
The Dark A(jes.
Thenceforward Uie welter and
cross-currents of tribal struggles, with
their alternate issue of victory and
extinction, ebbed and flowed over
these same riverine levels; but of
the details we, as yet, know nothing; perhaps we shall never know
much. One curious fact stands out.
India seems always to have proved
a Capua for her conquerors, and of
all the recorded attempts at invasion
from the northeast there has not been
one that has * not ultimately succeeded. It is the old Btory that runs
the same course all over the world.
The hilb always have conquered���
and probably always will conquer���

There ts not tint* to write here of
the Mogul empelrors.   As I have aald
before they supplied   the   throne   of
Delhi with the greatest Imperial dyn-;
asty,   that   the world's   history   re-;
cords, and long after the great six���
Babar, Humayun,    Akbar,   Jahanglr,
Shah Jehan and Aurangxeh���had been
gathered to their fathers, the glamor
of the splendid title weighed heavily
even with those    who    had utterly
worsted them ln war and ln peace.
Even the   unsentimental   British approached tbe question    of   the    dethronement of tbe Mogul emperor ln
Delhi���then a mere puppet, useless ln ;
our hands, and mischievous    in the
hands of those who   for a moment
could supplant    us���wtth obvious re- I
luctance.    One   thing   may   be   said
here.   The dazzling picture that history records of the Mogul court does,
perhaps, less than Justice to the per-
conallty of the sovereigns. It ls clalr
enough tbat mere magnifoence would
have been a temptation to their foes
rather tban a protection   to    them-!

With the famous invasion of Mohammed of Ghor, in 1193, we are on
firmer historical ground. His ambition was of a determined nature, as
be had to make his position in Afghanistan secure before he ventured
south, and hls first attempt upon
Delhi, in 1911, was an ignominious
failure. Owing, however, to internecine disputes, Mohammed was able,
ln 1193, to capture the place. But the
curse that ttends all merely personal
achievement in war awaited his
work. After his death Kutab-ud-din,

butchery went on, and Delhi, as a
living corporation of men and women,
ceased to exist. Timur returned devout thanks to Almighty God in Firoz
Shah's mosque, and retired. The Mogul grip, however, remained, and the
Seyyid dynasty, from 1114 to 1450,
was but another form of Mongolian

"big talk" for tbe future will atone
for all sorts of broken promises and
bad practices in tbe past.

they are cannibals, are not actually
head hunters. They only eat human
flesh when the victim is killel in
battle or private .vendetta; but then
the actual slayer is not permitted to
assist at the feast.
"At the big feast pig flesh is largely
eaten. One village of about 100 homes
killed 120 pigs for their meal.
"lhe religion of the Mafulus is
simply the primitive fear of ghosts
and spirits. They have not reached
the stage of idolatry. They believe,
for Instance that the flg tree and certain trailing plants are spirit-haunted.
"A Jesuit priest, who wanted to
build a hut, was warned by the Mafulus not to cut through one of these
trailing plants. He laughed at their
fears, and cut it through. Strangely
enough, he was taken very 111 the
next day. and bad to be removed to
the coast.
"Marriage is a very simple process.
A boy sees a girl be wants, and goes
to her house. A price is arranged
for her���some pigs or a tomahawk���
and the girl's parents accompany the
hoy back to his home. Then they all
sit outside the house, and the wedding is over."
