Presbyterian  Pre-Assembly Congress
Says   Church    .Should     Rise to
Meet   Urgent  Conditions.
The following resolution was
adopted by a standing vote at the
session of the Presbyterian Pre-Assembly Congress recently:
"This Congress desires to place on
record and to lay before the church
its conviction that the present situation in Canada, so unprecedented
and so urgent, demands the immediate and united action not only
of the ministers and elders but of the
individual   members  of   our   church.
"(a) To bring to a personal confession of their faith in Jesus
Christ as Lord and Master those
whose relations to our church is at
present merely nominal.
"(b) To bring into the fellowship
of our church those of our own communion coming to us from other
lands.
"(c) To unito the whole body of
our Presbyterian people in the work
of humanizing and of Christianizing
the social, the industrial, the civic
and every other department of our
national life.
"And, further, that the situation
is such as to call for the sympathetic
co-operation of all the Christian
churches in Canada, lo the end that
our fellow-citizens of other speech
and race may come to know and love
and serve Jesus Christ our Lord, and
thus join with us in building up tbe
Kingdom of God in our beloved
land.
"Also, this Congress desires to
place on record and to lay before
the church its conviction that the
present world situation is so unique
as to compel the solicitous attention

MINISTER'S WEDDING.
Quiet   Event   Took   Place   in   Ottawa
a Few Hays    Ago.
Hon. George H. Perley, minister
without portfolio, of the Dominion
Cabinet and Miss Mllly White,
daughter of the late Hon. Thomas
White, minister of the interior under the late Sir John A. Macdonald.
were very quietly married in St.
John's Church, says the Montreal
Star. The Rev, J. P. Gorman, assisted by Rev. Canon Pollard, performed the ceremony, which, owing
to a recent bereavement in the
bride's family was witnessed by only
immediate relatives. The bride, who
was given away by her brother, Mr.
Robert S. White, of Montreal, wore'
her travelling costume, a handsome
creme serge suit with collar and
cuffs of white moire, and a blouse of
white embroidered marquisette,
white tegal straw hat faced with
black and trimmed with ostrich
feathers, and carried a bouquet of
lilies of tbe valley and white roses.
She also wore tbe bridegroom's eift,
a pendant of diamonds and pearls
set in platinum. Miss Laura White,
the bride's sister, as bridesmaid
wore a gown of white silk shadow
brocade crepe, with trimmings of
white satin and pearls, and a white
bat with a pink chiffon crown and a J
mount of pink roses at the back. She j
also wore the bridegroom's gift, a
bracelet of platinum set with whole j
pearls and diamonds, and carried
pink roses. Dr. Fred Perley was best
man. Mr. and Mrs. Perley left by
private car for Toronto and Detroit.
The Silver Standard Mine near
Hazelton will begin shipping ore to
the Trail Smelter. There are to be
ten carloads of the ore sent here by
the company over the Grand Trunk
Pacific to bo taken south on the way
to the smelter at Trail.
This is tiie news that was brought
from the interior by A. E. McMaster,
the agent of the Grand Trunk Pacific who returned last evening
from a trip to tbe district. The new
rate that bus been arranged between
the conn.any and the mining men
seems to bo entirely satisfactory and
there promises to be considerable ore
sent   by   this   route.
The mines about Hazelton are all
reported to be showing up well and
the prospects are that there will be
a large tonnage before long to go
forward for treatment at the reduction works. The shipments will be
made by rail to Prince Rupert and
from here by steamer for the south.

THE CANADIAN EXPRESS
ALSO EXPECTS BIG THINGS
Company Has Already Placed Requisition For About 60 Refrigerator Cars
To Be Available At Prince Rupert For Business As Soon As The G T.
P. Is Connected With This Point—The Fish Business Is Looked Upon As
One Which Will Call For A Tremendous Number Of Cars—Visiting
Officials Tell How Trade Is Being Built Up Along Line Of New Road
The completion of the Grand
Trunk Pacific as a going concern to
Prince Rupert Will be attended with
grand results in all lines of trade.
This Is borne out by tho officials of
the Canadian Express Company now
in this city on a tour of Inspection.
The officials are M. T. Pullen, the
general manager of the company, and
N. J. Ross, the superintendent for
this part of the service. Mr. Pullen
Is accompanied by Mrs. Pullen and
is making a holiday trip, while Mr.
Ross is on one of his regular tours
of inspection of the different offices.
The business of the company is conducted through the offices of the
Grand Trunk. Pacific, the local agents
of the railway company acting as the
agents of the express company.
Mr. Ross is fully alive to the pos
sibilities of this port as is evidenced
by the remarks which he made last
evening on his return from a trip
along the line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific as far as Hazelton in company with W. E. Duperow, representing the Grand Trunk Pacific in Vancouver and A. E. McMaster, the local
representative.
Mr. Ross stated that already in
view of the great possibilities that
fishing had at this port his company
had put In a requisition for nearly
sixty refrigerator cars to be ready
for use here as soon as the railway
was connected up as a going concern with this city. This number, he
feels, will be needed at once for the
trade that there will be here to start
with. This will, of course, develop
to far greater things. On the start,
however, be is .satisfied tiiai Ibis
number of cars will be put to use to
take care of the fish that will go out
of here frozen for the markets of the
east.
As an evidence of the way in which
the completion of the railway to different points is developing trade, he
points out that the express company
Is now laying down In the city of Edmonton every day 300 cans of cream
alone. This trade has been built up
with the opening of the various
farming sections througii which the
railway passes. This Is independent
of the milk business that Is handled
by the company. It applies to the
cream only.
In the interior of this province he
looks to tho opening up of great
farming sections where there will be
great quantities of farm produce put
on tbe trains that will run continually to this  port. Tlu- nip to tbe interior afforded  lilm the opportunity,
to see what iiiat part ol the country
is likely  to  produce and   he sees In |
tbe territory that lies along the line,
of tho Grand Trunk Pacific Immense
possibilities.
Made  Inspection,
Captain G. Robertson, of Victoria,
superintendent of marine on this
coast, has made an inspection of the
station at Digby Island. He found
everything in first-class shape. Mr.
Tremalne. the inspector of offices,
will remain a few days longer In the
city. Captain Robertson will go south
tills morning.
Recently at a meeting of the
Farmers' Club, Lord Milner said that
one could not help asking what use
the nation was going to make of
the fortunate conjunction of circumstances in the Improved economic
outlook of agriculture and the increased appreciation of the importance of agriculture on the part of
statesmen.
Two objects, it seemed to him,
were of great importance—one was
tne greater productivity of the land
of the country, and the other was
an increase in tbe number of those
directly and consciously Interested in
the growth of that productivity, He
was certain that a great increase in
productivity was possible, by more
technical methods and by a more
liberal application of capital to soil.
There was also an Immense need for
further encouragement by the stato,
both in the direction of technical
and agricultural education and in
the fairer treatment of agriculture
with regard to some of ihe burdens
to which  It was subjected.
There was a great difference of
opinion with regard to the increase
of small holders and small owners,
bul In- loll thai on the broadest
possible grounds, it waa essential t->
the welfare of the community, lo the
welfare of bind owners mid farmers,  that   the reviving  prosperity of
English agriculture sl Id be shared
by a greater number of people, llo
did not think the agricultural laborers of this country would i»- satis*
ficd, nor could they expect them to
be satisfied, even with an Increase of
ivages, so long us there was not
more opportunity for the individual
to raise himself by bis own efforts
in  the social  scale.
llo believed himself that what the
most enterprising nnd energetic of
the actual tillers of the soil looked
forward to, and what they most
cared aboul, was the prospect of
themselves owning something. He
believed il was economically desirable that the land of England should
be farmed In farms of considerable
size. He saw great advantages In the
existence of largo land-owners. Hut
It was Indirectly to the Interest of
land-owners and farms and vital te
them, that the large ownerships of
England should bo interspersed with

A  PORT OF FIRST RANK.
Everything points to this becoming
a port of the very first rank at the
time it is open for general business
as far as througii freight is concerned. The plans of the Canadian
Express Company as detailed elsewhere is another of the many indications that this is to be the condition. That company is not going to
take any chance on the cold storage
shipments and accordingly has had
provision made for the placing of a
large number of refrigerator cars
ready for the business that will
originate out of this port. It is safe
to say that there has never been a
port on the Coast that, started off at
the very commencement of its existence and a handler of through
freight that had the same provision
made in this respect as is promised
for Prince Rupert.
The road is assured it would seem
for early next summer, so that there
will be within a year's time tbe opening up of a port second to none on
the Coast here. The facilities will be
here for the handling of all kinds
of trade. The wand Trunk Pacific
seems io be thoroughly alive to the
Importance of the place that is to be
developed and there will therefore be
an awakening in the city that will
surprise e\en the most sanguine with
respect to it. \vithin a few months
the road will be through and the
city will be athrob with life in
commercial way. The preparations
for that time must of necessity produce a great deal of activity. The
greatest movement in the history o
the place is due now at any moment.
MONEY  AND  CIRCULATION.
The amount of money in the world
varies very little from month to
month, although there is doubtless
a steady increase. There is just as
much money in times of depression
as in times of activity. The difference
is in the activity of circulation, says
an exchange. If n million dollars
Is exchanged once a year, it.represents only a million dollars of business for the year; but if it is exchanged once a month, it represents
twelve millions of business for the
twelve months. Money is never
scarce; it only moves slowly at
times. A day or two ago we read that
the transactions on the New York
Stock Exchange represented 300,000
shares. Most of this was no real
business. If the conclusions reached
by the Pujo Committee of Congress
are at all accurate, only about 30,-
000 shares really changed ownership. The other 270,000 shares represented so much gambling, and In
order that this gambling may be carried   on   millions   upon   millions     of
money  were  kept  out of  legitimate
circulation.
In Europe just now there is a
financial stringency. There is .ust as
much money as ever, but it is being kept from circulation for one
cause or another. Perhaps one reason
is that it is likely to be needed to
meet the liquidation ensuing upon
ihe conclusion of the Balkan war.
As soon as there is any certainty as
to how much money will be needed
for that purpose, circulation will become freer and there will be an end
to the stringency. A very liltle money
moving freely will suffice for a very
great deal of business.
P(l\ EIITl     AND  GENIUS.
Lord Curzon made some interesting remarks oeurlng upon ihe question of poverty and genius when presiding at the Literary Fund dinner.
Differing from Lord Rosebery, Lord
Curzon said: "1 decline to admit
that there is any stimulus in poverty
or any Inspiration in squalor. Byron
was a genius although he was a peer.
Burns was a genius although ho was
a ploughman. Hut Burns's genius
was not due to his being a ploughman any more than Byron's genius
was due to bis being a peer, if Burns
had not been a ploughman, but had
been a planter in Jamaica, he would
still have written great works of
genius, although they would have
been works of a different kind.
Chaucer was a rather impecunious
person, but his best work was done
when lie was in good circumstances.
Cbatterton did not write better because lie was penniless and starving.
Cioldsinit.il died in debt for over
£2000, but his best work was written when he was in comfortable
circumstances. 1 ask you to take the
cases of Shakespeare, Milton, Addison, Swift, Pope, Dryden, Burke,
Macaulay, Shelley, Gibbon, Wordsworth, Tennyson. None of these men
were poor in the sense that Burns
was poor. Most of them were fairly
well off, some of them were exceedingly well off, while a limited number of them belonged to the classes."
Lord Morley, speaking at the same
banquet, said he agreed with Lord
Curzon that poverty was no stimulus
at all to literature. "In Murray's immortal dictionary be found the saying
fathered on him that 'literature is
the most seductive, the most deceiving, the most dangerous of all
professions.' He stood by that, and
thought that that description of it,
if not over-eolored, was sound. Insecurity was the root of all our social
mischief, and until he got into what
the Dean of Durham called the Parnassus the literary man had to suffer insecurity in the most poignant
degree."

BENEFITS OF
BRITISH RULE
RESULT OF    LORD    KITCHENER
AS  OFFICIAL    REPRE9ENTA-
Tll E  IX  EGYPT.
Sudan Is Now Very Near    Self-supporting—Egypt  Not  Now Solely
Dependent, on Cotton Crop.
Lord Kitchener is the official representative of British rule and influence in the land of Egypt, and his
annual report of tbe economic
progress of the country bus just
been  published.
"Tho prosperity of Egypt," says
the London Times, in summarising
this report, "depends upon cotton
and the price of cotton. The production of Egyptian cotton had been
doubled by 1894, but the country
was no better off, because prices
had fallen greatly. At the end of last
century prices bounded upward, the
value of cotton exports doubled, and
money poured into Egypt. It was
largely wasted in the period of in-
f 1mlIon which ended In the 'boom' of
1907, with its subsequent disasters.
Only a continuance of abundant
crops and good prices has enabled
Egypt to emerge successfully from
that time of trial, There are other
precarious aspects of this dependence
on cotton. Egypt is fighting the
common boll-worm, which lias been
ravaging tbe crops, and she has now
become aware of tho presence of a
pink boll-worm which threatens to
be a menace. The cultivators are
greater enemies to their crops than
are these insects. Their wilful adulteration of their cotton has been
damaging the high reputation of
Egyptian cotton. Legislation is now-
checking   these  suicidal   practices.
"Again, variation in the flow of
the Nile is an Important factor. For
several years the Nile has been comparatively low, but in accordance
with precedent a series of exceptionally high Niles may now be expected, which means a danger of floods
in Lower Egypt and possible widespread disaster. The danger was
lessened when the raising of the
Assuan dam was completed last December, but it is proposed to build
a new dam on the White Nile forty
miles above Khartum, by which the
supply can be still further regulated.
"The fellah has to be still further
protected against himself. Egypt is
a multitude of small holdings, and
tho Improvident peasantry were rap-
Idly being expropriated from their
land by swarms of rapacious moneylenders. The Agricultural Bank was
not quite realizing expectations, and
the facilities it offered were not a
sufficient check. Lord Kitchener
turned to his Indian experiences for
a remedy. He bad a share in passing
the Punjab Land Alienation Act,
and knew bow invaluable that measure had proved. He has now boon instrumental in passing in Egypt Ihe
Five Feddaii Law, which exempts the
holdings of small fanners from
seizure for debt. His Cantonal Justice Law is a reform which will give
effect to local usage and provide tbe
peasantry with swift access to justice from their own notables, without recourse to the elaborate procedure of larger courts. He is establishing rural savings banks upon
methods which are encouraging
thrift, because they make it easy to
save.
. "He has become a roadmaker, and
Egypt will soon become covered
with a network of good roads, and
no longer be chiefly dependent Upon
her railways and her waterways for
means of communication. Above all,
lie has perceived thai Egypt's dependence upon cotton must be lessened, and to that end he Is stimulating the development of tbe other resources of the country. Lord Kitchener's report on the progress of the
Anglo-Egyptian Sudan Is equally encouraging. Tho Sudan is now very
nearly self-supporting; in four years
iis external trade has Increased from
under two to over three millions
sterling, and the great Gezira triangle between the White and Blue
Niles should soon be producing large
quantities of excellent cotton."
gambling upon this huge scale is
very much to be deplored," says the
Spectator (London), "we doubt whe-
tner it is so serious as the evil of
betting, fostered as it is in England
by inducements in the daily press.
The insidious allurements of the
half-penny paper penetrate into
every house and meet us at every
street corner. '
LONDON STREET TRAFFIC.
Interesting   Statistics     of   die     Most
Frequented Streets and Roads in
London.
The most frequented street in
London would appear to be Piccadilly, where 31,335 vehicles pass the
Ritz Hotel in twelve hours, says the
Dundee Advertiser, The equivalent
traffic volume is 78.4. Other high
figures are 75.6 units in Kensington Park Road and 72.1 in Commercial Road, E. The bridge taking the
heaviest traffic is London bridge,
over which 17,2r.:t vehicles pass in
the twelve hours This is followed
closely by Westminster Bridge, with
17,2D'l; Hlackfriars, with 16,307,
and the Tower Bridge with 13,010.
Reducing these figures to units of
congestion, Blacltfrlars Bridge, says
Engineering, is the most crowded,
its traffic volume being 102.8. The
Tower Bridge comes next, with 95.8
j units, the corresponding figure for
London Bridge being 85.6 and for
Westminster 84.3 units. By dividing
these units of traffic volume by the
width of the roadway taken in tens
of feet, the relative traffic density
is obtained. The highest figure noted
is an average 27.3 on the Tower
Bridge, rising to 53.7 during the
heaviest hour oi the day. Brentford
High Street has on the same basis
of comparison, an average traffic
density of 24.9, Old Street one of
23.3 and Canning Town Bridge one
of 21.

have literally peopled the desert

established In districts which were
formerly quite useless. Their villages are thriving, ilieir land is growing In value, and for them the desert
sands have indeed proved golden.
The Triple Project cost close upon
£7,000,000, but it. yields to the Government a return upon capital outlay
of 7 1-2 per cent. Yet it means affluence to the peasantry also, and
life in the canal colonies is so popular among the stalwart men of Northern India that the development of
irrigation is seriously affecting recruiting for the Native Army.

schemes for the uninitiated is that
the results are so visible and concrete. To enter an irrigated area in
Northern India is an unforgettable
experience. The stranger passes in
a flash from monotonous, barren
sand-hills Into a land of smiling
plenty. On the one hand, the interminable desert; on the other, green
waving crops, prosperous villages,
ant! cool, refreshing gleams of water. Small wonder that in the presence of such visions men have pome-
times been led to form exaggerated
ideas of the possibilities of irrigation. It seems so easy and so simple
to cdllect and guide ihe waters pouring downwards from the Himalayas,
and 'bring the deserts in.' Bul it Is
not so easy, and  there is a definite I

GOLD  PRODUCTION  OF    EMI'IR
World's Gold   Production    of     191!
Nearly $500,000,000, of  Which
$300,000,000   Was   British.
Great as the national and Imperial
progress has been in the past generation, it Is bound to be vastly exceeded in the future. That anticipation
is warranted by the incalculable natural wealth and resources of the
Empire still but partially developed,
the commercial products yet to be
exploited or created, the growth of
population in the Dominions, and the
attraction of capital and enterprise to
the Empire's tempting areas.
Compare the area of the Empire
with that of the Continent of Europe.
The. European total, even incluring
Nova Zembia and Spitzbergen, as
well as Iceland, is 3,870:000 square
miles, against our Empire's 11,345,-
000, so that the British Empire is
nearly as large as three Europes put
together. The Empire includes every
variety of soil and climate, and
yields all the land and sea products
of the temperate, the tropic and the
frigid zones, it is unequalled n? a
treasure store of minerals, and it
has the enormous advantage in this
electrical age of abundunt water
powers for cheap production on the
grand  scale—including such    mani-
fected by revolutionary disturbances
and the Russian output was handicapped by labor troubles and water
scarcity.
The maintenance of Ihe world's
gold supply in adequate proportion
to the world's needs is a question
that now excites some misgiving,
and in this connection great attention is devoted to India's extraordinary absorption of the precious metal.
It is now reckoned that from 190S
to 1912, both years inclusive, India
has absorbed no less than 15 per
cent, of the world's total gold output.

"When all the programmes are
completed, over 85 per cent, of Ihe
surface flow of the rainfall of India
and of the water from the Himalayan
snows will still escape to the sea.
Rain does not fall in greatest volume
where it is most needed. The 30

the arid emptiness of Sind blossom

in India is not immeasurable, enough
has already been done under British
rule to make the. Indian irrigation
system   one  of   Hie   wonders  of  the
still unutilized great falls in the interior of British Guiana.
Many speak of the Empire as a
treasure-house of natural wealth, and
the justice of this statement is
abundantly manifest if one considers
what her share is in the world's
total gold production. That world
total in 1912 amounted to $475,000,-

produced in the British Empire. The

are as follows:

though they arc, ihe irrigation works
constructed by the British In Indii

have not exorcised famine, but they
have done much towards thai end.

ultimate solution of the problem of

a considerable number of small ownerships.
There was a political reason for
that. He knew no big country In
Europe where agricultural interests
commanded so little respect where
politicians looking for office cared
so little for agricultural interests.
Why had agriculture so little power
in England? Because the number
of people in England who were directly interested in the profits of it,
not as mere wage-earners, was so
small as compared With other countries in Europe. This disregard, however, was diminishing. He believed
that economical variety in the size
of agricultural ownerships was advantageous. That might be arguable.
What was not arguable was that it
was politically desirable if the agricultural community was to have the
political influence which, for the
sako of the nation, It ought to have.
