Horrible Loss of Life.
Ne* York, April 15.���Vice-
President Franklin at 8:40
o'clock conceded that there had
been a "horrible losa of life" in
the Titanic disaster. He said
that he had no Information to
disprove the Associated Press
advices from Cape Race to ths
c-ffect that only 675 of the passengers and crew had been
rescued. He said that the
monetary loss could not be estimated tonight, although he intimated that it would run into
the millions.
"We can replace the money,"
he added, "but not the lives."

The report of Aldermen Curtis and
White upon their recent visit to Portland, Seattle and Victoria, tbe purchase of automojiles for the board of
woi'ks, tbe llgnt and water committees, and discussions upon the widening ot Agnes street and the size of
lots formed the salient points of the
council's deliberations last night.
The report may be thus summarized: "While the trip was Instructive an.l of much value on the question of road making, it was found

A motor accident which terminated
fatally for Mr. Al. t��. Jenkins occurred
yesterday afternoon at the corner of

leported to be electric wiring inspector at Point Grey, was riding a motor
bicycle and was struct by a mo.or
car owned by Mr. I\ B. Jones, of
Portland, Oregon, just as be was turning Into Main avenue.
The accident was an unusual one as
both machines were going In the same
direction, towards Vancouver, at the
time of the collision. Mr. Jenkins on
his cycle was ln front, und he turned
to go up Main avenue. Mr. Jones'
car, which waa following behind, overtook bim and the lefthaud lamp struck
the cycle's back wheel. Jenkins was
thrown to the ground and the car
passed over him, killing him practically instaneously.

He is intensely interested in the developments that will lollow the opening oi tlie Panama Canal, and believes

a population of more than 200*000,000. The unfortunate part of the boy's
life lios In the fact Ihat the ruler of Russia dues not lie In a bed of roses.
Some of that country's czars have been assassinated, and the occupant of ths
throne lives ln jonstant dread of the nssassin'S bullet or bomb. No matter

The   ancient   controversy   of   Tip-
��erary and the High scliool 18 appar-
-ently not dead yet.    The school trus- I
ices are going ahead with the full in-1
tention of building tbe school on this ]
*ite, while   on Une   other   hand   the]
Trades and Labor council is clrculat- J
ing a petition ,against this action. The j
���city council after strongly    opposing
*he school hoard's scheme until they
.found that they had no legal ground
to stand on bas given up the tight.
Throughout the whole    history    of
the Tipperary controversy very little
judgmeni seems to have been   used.
Plebiscites- have been taken, but   In
*uch a way that after the result had
been declared tt was still in dispute,
which side the people favored.    The j
achool trustees seem to many to have
acted rather like children with their.
minds set on  something    that    they |
wanted without knowing why,    while
last year's council apparently did not
take the trouble to find out    exactly ;
���where they stood before opposing tho
building of the  High  school  on this
wliich they wished to-preserve as   a
site wliich they wished to preserve as
jo. park. . ', 1 11
So far the school trustees, having
tlie law on their side, have won out \
all along the line. Considerable dis-[
satisfaction has been expressed in
many quarters at what wns considered
their rather high-handed action in
this matter and they put themselves
in a bad light by refusing to meet
the council at a joint conference on
the grounds that embodied in the request, for a meeting was a misstatement of fact. This view was urged
by certain of the trustees and carried
against the better Judgment of somo
of the less biased members of the
board. t   ���, ���;)
Plans for the school have now been
drawn, but at this late hour the trustees come out    with    a concession���
which for all nnyhouv Knows they had
planned all the time���to the public by
sayin-, that they have no intention to
close    the    Tipperary    grounds,    but
rather are going to improve them and
make them  into a public park.    For
this tliey are to be commended from
���some points of view, tbe only oblec-
tion being that,, we would like to see
the High sehdol surroun.led, not by a
public park, but by  a school  playing
.ground.    Granted,  however,  that  tho
school i.s on Tlpperary, the best thin:;
���that can be done with the rest of the
ground is to make it into a well laid
���out public park.
It is rather lato, perhaps, to discuss
the placing of the High school on this
aite, but the arguments against doing
so still seem very strong. Tipperary
is too close in for a IJIgh school, and
it offers Utile accommodation for
igames. Such a school siiould be set
in the middle of the residential district of thc fjituie. In building in
Westminster ii is necessary to look
ahead anl somewhere between Sixth
and Eighth avenues surely, a more
suitable site could be found, where a
large playground could be laid out for
*lhe school children to exercise their
bodies as they will their minds inside
the building.
"It it were really possible to cure
Englishmen of insularity, a tour of
the North American continent ougbt
to effect that result," says the Seattl*
Times. We wonder what Is the name
of that incurable disease with which
some Americans are affected.

Washington, April IB.���What sort of
bread and butter efficiency training
does the educational system of this
country offer tlie youn/ workman who
wants to better himself by going to
an industrial school out of shop hours?
This question Is touched on by
diaries R. Richards, director of Cooper i'nion for the advancement of
science and art, New York City, in a
publication just issued for free distribution by the United States bureau
of education. Mr. Richards finds that
just now evening ecIicoIs have the
most pupils of this sort, but points out
sthe advantages which would accrue if
the example of Germany should be followed in allowing workmen time off by
day without having their wages decked, in order to raise their efficiency
by attending industrial schools.
Dr. Richards says iu part:
"Evening schools lepresent tiie first
form of industrial education in this
country, and fi.ey reach today by far
the largest num\er of Individuals under instruction in .this Held. As a
means of supplemenVry instruction In
mathematics, science, drawing, and
technical subjects they repiesent a
simple and effective* method of industrial education, at least sfor young
men more than say, IS years old.
"Evening continuation schools were
for half a century the backbone of tiie
Genian system    of Industrial    education.   Today that country is coming to
a  realization   that    for students   between  It  and  18 the evening is not
tbe  best time  for instruction, and  is
I bringing    the  work    of  contin iation
: schools  Into  tlie  day  period.    It will
naturally require a considerable time
I lor  this  country   to   reach   the  same
| point   an 1   to   bring   about   a   general
I agreement among manufactureis to allow learners in their establishments to
attend industrial improvement schools
during working hours.
"Tlie positive henellts that result,
wheie such a elan is followed, and the
close coielation that is made between
the work of the shop and that of tho
classroom, have, however, been so
strikingly  shown that this system  of
industrial education deserves to be
studied Increasingly by both employers and school men.
"When the time for attendance upon the school work is granted to ap
Color Photography Perfect.
London,   April  16.���A  new   method
I of  color  photography, embodying  ex-
, Inordinary brilliant results, has Just
I been  demonstrated  before  the Royal
j Photographic  Society.    The  peculiarity of the method is that no special
! color  plates  are   necessary,   ner   i.
there   any   introduction   of   artificial
screens or colored  particles.  A
plain negative as In ordinary photography is taken and a lantern slide is
made from   it aad   by purely optical
means, - using a grating and a pi ism,
tlie picture in natural coiors is faithfully reproduced.
The process    Is the work    of two
brothers, Ernst and Julius Rbeinburg,
it developed into a trust, and as fortune had been kind to him he did not
hesitate at any time to build a load
where he considered it was necessary.
The amount of cash that Mr. Hill has
spent In this way must well exceed
one million tiohais, Most of these
roads being built in t.;c state of Washington, wheie Mr, tilll makes hl3
headquarters. liis home is in the city
of Seattle, and consists of a magnificent million-dollar iesidence, overlooking Lake Union.
An interesting article in a recent
issue of the Western Motor Car thui
describes a stretch of road built by
Samuel Hill:
"More  than   thiee  miles of  model    .,���,
roa.l, built as the Romans of old used j fide
to build, deep and strongly, and wide,
have been finished by Samuel Hill,
called the "Father of Good Roads,"
near his home at Maryhlli, Wash., and
dedicated to public use. When completed the model road will extend for
seven miles along a route of heavy
traffic. i
"In building such short stretches ofl
perfect highway, Mr. Hill's idea is to
show the cbunty commissioners and
taxpayers the value of good roads as
an economic factor by practical demonstration. By dally use of such highway the farmer learns that it is possible to haul twice as much produce to
market as is possible on the ordinary
road be encounters; the merchant
finds that be can profitably, bring city
goods far Into the country, minister-
nr; to the farmer's ever) need, -.ml

and country are brought to realize
that 11 they were connected by such
well-paved ways, a Jaunt to each otb-
of color photography by prismatic dispersion. The method necessitates a
special and costly camera, and Is,
therefore, put forward for its scientific interest, and not as commercial
| proposition, lt. turns upon the use of
a grating, or line screen, whicli splits
up into    immense    numbers    of .tiny
[spectra, one hundred to the inch, ar.d
each one complete. The grating is
used in making the negatives and later, when placed    behind    a positive,
I when made from the negative, it enable hlack and white pictures to appear in the exact color of nature.
Tlie   results  of  the    method   were
projected on an aluminum screen, and
were  declared   to  be  unsurpassed  In
Ity    of    color rendering by    any
method in vogue at present. Its ability to tender the texture or distinctive
sheen on such as silk, china, or glass,
is remarkable.

Owing to" the success of "The

and "The Chocolate Soldier," there ls
a scramble among our leading managers for ihe American rights as soon
as anything from a Viennese source Is
produced on the other side. In the
case of "Mlss Dudelsack," which is
the musical sensation of the bis continental cities, her managers were ihe ,

the weight of seventy-dve memoeis oi
the party.
The aceident occurred while the
young people wero standing around n
big fermenting vat, the workings of
which were being explained by the
superintendent of the plant.
Word waa Immediately sent to the
police department and every ambulance ln the city was hurried to the
scene. It is not believed that fatalities  will result.
Closely grouped about a big vat
stood the seventy-flve persons when
suddenly there, was a crash and a roar
and the whole party was precipitated
to the ground.
Workmen Of tho -plant worked rap-
coal. Suppose, again, that the idea
were possible, the shales which now
constitute the waste heaps would also
be set on fire and the gas obtained
would require washing to remove the
very appreciable quantities of sulphuric acid, hydrogen and the sulphide gases present, and the gas
would be to a very considerable extent contaminated, with the fine dust
from the ash, 'and require special
washing machinery before lt would be
fit for tbe gas engines.
"Then there would be, of curse, always the danger of serious explosions. In short, the scheme ls virtually Impracticable." ,
It has been iiointed out that not
only wlll Sir William Ramsay have to
meet these Insurmountable difficulties
when he comes to put his scheme Into operation, but that he ls also faced
with a patent taken out here ln 1909
by A. A. Betts, of New York, the specification of which reads; "Power gas
la generated from unmlned coal by
starting a fire at the base of one or
more shafts or bore holes supplying
the air and steam through a pipe and
withdrawing the gas through the
same or other shafts or bore."

President cf the Union Trust Cl., at
the Age of Seventy, Is Still Active
and Attributes His Health to His
Annual Trips Across tho Atlantic���
Hss Kept Them Up Fcr Forty
Ye^.rs���A Busy  Life.
I.i perUiiOg the proceedings of the
annual Wd'eting of the Union Trust;
C\i Limited, held in Toronto recently., We notice it was stated that the
president of the company, Mr. Charles
Magee, in acknowledging his re-election to the office of president, announced his probable retirement from
the position before ths end of the current year.
Mr. Magee's name has. boon so intimately connected with the financial,
commercial and political affairs cl
Canada for so groat a time that it is
a far cry since the public first heard
of him. Anyone who had business to
do with the Hank of Ottawa for nearly a quarter ol a century previous ta
1902 got to believe that the name o(
the bank and that of Charles Magee
were almost synonymous.
Mr. Magee rs now about seventy
years ol ane, but is still as'young and
Active as many men under sixty and
tie attributes bis good health in a
great measure to liis yearly trips
across the Atlantic, which lie has b ?e��

Away back in 1S63. there was ���organised in the city of Ottawa �� Ifirin
Piquant Stories About the Late Queen
Victoria at Horn.'.
Gracious though the late Queen Victoria   could   he   at   times,   she   would
brook  no interference  with  her  personal   ..ishes.    Furthermore,  she  was
quite convinced in  her early days of
ths infallibility of kings and queens,
and strongly rented anything which,
in her opinion, would lower her royal
dignity.   This is made plain by Mrs.
Jerrold in her stories of thn court Itl
the   'forties,  C-'taflljjd  in  her  book.
"Tlie Early Court oi Quscn Victoria."
Qu?en Victoria's childho,! wos exceedingly   dreary,   and  it  was,   per��
haps,   scarcely  surprising,  when  sha
became  Queen of  England, that sho
used her p:>wer and great position in
j very little ways.    Her (irsl request to
her mother on her accession was tliat
I she   should   be   "left   alone   for   two
i hours,"   a   privilege   she   had   never
I enjoyed, while, when the Duchess of
Kent begged her august daughter not
to overtire herself by the excitement
of  attending   in   person  to  prorogue
Parliament, the girl  of eighteen  aii".
I "That is a word I do not like Yo
hear; all these ceremonies interest
' and please me, hut have nn such effect on my mind as that which I
understand by excitement."
I Nut even Lord Melbourne v^s allowed to give her ajiy slight correction. At lier first council tlie young
Queen  began reading:
"T)iis  act intituled"���which  is tho
Ifc'l-way of selling "entitled."
j    " 'Entitled,'   your   Majesty,   'entitled,' "   hastily    corrected    Lord   Melbourne, in a loud aside.
1    The young Qineen slowly drew her-
I self up an'l said, quietly and firmly,
"1  have said it."
Then, after a pause, once more thu
te'autiful childish voice rang out:���
"This act intituled "
We 'jet another striking illustration
of  Queen  Victoria's   independence  of
character in connection vidti what has
been   facetiously   termed   "the   Great
Bedchamber Plot."   Ladies of the lled-
I chamber  are  appointed by the  Gov-
', eminent,   and   a  change  in   the   ad-
! ministration usually means a change
I in the  appointment's.    In  1JJ0,   how-
i ever, Queen  Victoria (refused to  part

j ernment,   and   the   consequence   wa*

Trainer Tills cf Remarkable Musical
Talent In Animal:.
A cood  many  pet-owners   may   be
startie'd to  learn  that   nniuiGls   can
distinguish   liet'ven   musical   notes,
snys  un  English  trainer in a recent
article, and that tho.-" oE any decree
of   int 'lligenoe    may    bn   trained   us i
musical    performers.     Animals    that '

instructed by their trainer to do so.
If tho  melody  ItHS  net  been  perfect,
it has bsen sufficient to. prove   tlist
the seals hav ��� nt least some music in
tlieir composition.
The majority of wild nnimuls are
influ 'tied hy music, nnd everyone
knows thet bears can be tnught to
dunce on their hind legs while holding u pole to sound of music, even if
that music ii ground out of n common
str"et orrfiin by means of a handle.
Once u ei-ens horse has been taught
to do u trick to n certain tune he will
do it wh never be hears that tune,
nnd, in consequence, he is the cause
of some funny incidents now and
again. Once I took n horse into the
strett for exercise, und as we turned
a corner a burr d-orgnn commenced
to grind out its music. The tunc
was the very one the animal was accustomed to in the circus .ring, and
he conclud'd that I was expecting
him to no through his usual perform- ,
ance. He broke away from me nnd i
pave a free performance in thc middle of tlie road, ami I could only call
him to order by appealing to the '
"musician ' to stop the organ.
When the ordinary dog howls at
music it does not always do so because tho notes get on its "nerves,"
but often beea us? it i- striving to
imitate them as well ns its untrained
vocui  powers will  permit.
I heard a wonderful story of a
singing <i> t th1 other dny. A handsome collie, named Sammy, tbc
property of n Sir. Carlson, is a tenor
soloist. Everj' miming, when a Indl
on a church near his maffr's home
rings, Sammy takes up a position
elf i by and begins an accompaniment, whir", blends remarkably well
with the i" ���"[> rotes of thfi bell. A
musician Ikh declared that the dng
is exactly in tune with the metallic
sounds, that como from the church

"pull o;:t ono gray hair and a dozen
will tako its place" is a:l old saying,
whtah ii, to a great extent, true, if no
steps nro taken to stop tho cause. When
gray hairs appear it te sl sigri that Na-
tura needs assistance. It is Nature's
cull for help. Gray hair, dull, lifeless
h:iir, or hair that is falling out, is not
no:c33ari!y a sign of advancing age, for
t'.urj nro thousands of elderly; people
with perfect heads of hair without a
tingle streak of gray.
When gray hairs come, or when the
hair seems to bo lifeless or dead, some
gaod, reliable hair-restoring treatment
should be resorted to at once. Specialists say that ono of tha best preparation to uso ii tho old-fashioned "sage
toa" which our grandparents used. The
best preparation of this ���kind is Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur Hair Remedy, a preparation of domestic sage and sulphur,
scientifically compounded with later discovered hair tonics and stimulants, the
whole mixture being carefully balanced
and tested by experts.
Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur is clean and
wholesome and perfectly harmless. It
refreshes dry, parched hair, removes
dandruff and gradually restores faded
or gray hair to its natural color.
Don't delay another minute. Start
using Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur at
once and see what a difference a few
days' treatment will'tnake in your hair.
This preparation is offered to the
public at fifty cents a bottle, and is
recommended nnd sold by all druggists.
