PAARDEBURG DAY
FITTINGLY HONORED
Daughters of Empire Listened to
Patriotic Address By Mr. W. J.
Jephson—A Most Successful Tea
Given At Home of Mrs. Thomas
McClymont Yesterday Afternoon
The Boys Who ftave Put Over
A Home Run On the Majors
In honor of Paardeburg Day, the
Queen Mary Chapter Daughters of
the Empire gave a most successful
tea at the residence of Mrs. Thomas
McClymont, yesterday afternoon. The
feature of the afternoon was an address given by Mr, W. J, Jephson on
Imperialism. Mrs. l-Iemmel and Mrs,
Jarvis McLeod  rendered  vocal solos.
The dining table was presided
over by Mrs. Naden and Mrs. Mo-
Mullin, while assisting were Mrs.
McRae, Mrs. Orme, Miss Fisher, Miss
Johnstone, Miss DuVernet and Miss
Martin. The table was most attractively decorated with red, white and
blue ribbons and small Union Jacks.
A bowl of white and blue hyacinths
occupied the centre of the table.
Mr. Jephson's subject was "Imperial Friendship." He said that
Britishers in Canada should take an
Interest In the doings of Britishers
in other parts of the Empire. Travel
was, of course, the great way to
arouse such interest, but failing that
^e should do our best to promote a
| .eellng of Imperial friendship. As
our fortunes seem so bound up with
the future of the Pacific we should
take particular Interest in Australia's
affairs, since Australia also bordered
on the Pacific. Her naval affairs
would affect ours very materially,
as it would be easy to co-operate
with her to ensure the British position  on   thir  Pacific.
Continuing, the speaker stated
that the whole idea of the Empire
was the extension of friendly feeling
among people widely separated by
distance but living under one tlag.
Imperialism, contrary to usual opinion, really strove to make the world
small. Travel, as it becomes more
speedy,  lessens distance,    and Impe
rialism, by striving to bind, all parts
together, completes the process of
making us all one family. The way
in which this is attempted by the
liritish is different from that pursued
by tiie Romans, Greeks and others.
Their idea was to subject the outskirts to aa powerful centre. The
British learned the futility of this in
that terrible experience, the American War of independence, and since
then the great eltort has been not
merely to suffer but to encourage
self-government  overseas.
"The purpose for which these
great Imperial experiments are made
is in reality almost an instinct in
all mankind to find some system under which all the nations of the
earth may live together in harmony
as a world-wide state when international jealousy and suspicion shall
have passed away," said the speaker.
"And the solution of that puzzle Is
the reason for the existence of the
British Empire. That is the thing
which I and those others who call
themselves Imperialists so passionately desire."
There were about forty-three present, including Mrs. McClymont, Mrs.
McLennan, Mrs. McMullin. Mrs, H.
F, McRae, Mrs. DuVernet, Mrs. Patmore, Mrs. Babington, Mrs. Palmer,
Mrs. Ritchie, Mrs. Naden, Mrs. Baxter, Mrs. Tyre, Mrs. Holland, Mrs.
Robeison, Mrs. ik-iiuuel, .Mrs. Jarvis
McLeod, Mrs, Walker, Mrs. Dowling,
Mrs. Homer, Mrs. Riley, Airs. L.
Kergin, Mrs. Rix, Airs. McMordie,
•Mrs. Wilson-Murray, Mrs, Melville,
Mrs. Sinclair, .Mrs. Carmlchael, Mrs.
A. B. Williams, Mrs. Orme, Aliss
Fisher, Aliss .Martin, Miss DuVernet,
Aliss Grant, Aliss AIcNair, Aliss Johnstone and Aliss Mllllgan.
Although the Sherman Law has not been effective in breaking up the
Baseball Trust, other forces which might be termes "competitive" have
been driving an entering wedge wiih telling force. The aforesaid competitive forces found it was no small matter to start the ball rolling.
Oftentimes when it seemed they had lined out a one-bagger, owing to
the activity of the opposition's fie'd they could never reach first. However, they kept hammering away until they landed Tinker, which was a
home run with a capital "H." and leaves them in a strong position with
other good men on base. We refer io the Federal League's effort to invade the sacred precincts of the .Majors. The above photograph shows a
group of Federal League baseball magnates, who have caused so much
worry for the magnates of the .Majors. The photograph was taken at

LOCAL IMPROVEMENT
ARREARS PENALIZED
INLAND  WATERWAY  IS
ADVOCATED TO  PRAIRIES
Proposition Is Put Forward in Favor
of Method old Carrying- Wheat
to the Ocean.
C. A. Dunning, manager of the
Saskatchewan Co-operative Elevator
Company, with headquarters at Regina, has advocated the consideration
of an inland waterway from ocean
to prairie as the most practical way
of making tbe raising of grain a profitable undertaking for the farmer.
Mr. Dunning is a member of the
Saskatchewan Grain Commission
which recently visited foreign countries with a view to considering
conditions and the means by which
marketing arrangements could be
improved. The numerous transfers
of the wheat, such as from cars to
large boats, then to smaller boats,
and again to the ocean-going boats,
Is, according to Air. Duntilng's statement, an expensive combination.

Government Has Introduced Amendment to Act So That Rate of Interest Will Be 12 Per Cent Per Annum Thus Wiping Out Difficulty
Met  With   Under   Existing Law
There has been a complaint raised
that under the existing local improvement act governing municipalities there was not the machinery
necessary to enforce the proper payment of the local improvement rates
levied. With the interest charges
only such as was the current rate
for borrowing money there was no
inducement for paying the rates up.
Now under an amendment introduced by the Attorney-General at
Victoria this will be overcome. The
interest collectable is twelve per
cent, per annum, which makes it
practically imiierative to pay the
taxes. Under this amendment the
amount collected will no longer lie
likely to be too little to pay the Interest charges as was the cast In
Mine instances befoie. The amended
section reads as follows:
"Provided   that  every  special  rate
, imposed   under   this   acl   shall   bear
interest  at  the  rale of  twelve  per
; centum  per annum  from    the date
! upon which the special rate is made
'payable until paid or recovered, and
I such added interest shall be deemed
'a charge upon the respective lots on
which the special rate is imposed in
I all  respects as  if  the said  interest
■ hail  originally formed    part of  the
special assessment thereon, and may
! be recovered as a part of the special
rate."

SUBMARINE SIGNAL HELLS
ARRIVE ON COAST
Three New Aids to Navigation, First
of  Kind, to Be Established
on  Piu-ilic.
LAID Al   IlKST YESTERDAY
AT FAIRV1EW CEMETERY
Three new submarine signal bells
for service In British Columbia waters have just arrived on this coast
from the manufacturers at Toronto.
The apparatus is not smail, for during the transcontinental trip each
bell occupied a freight car. The
bells are the first of their kind to
be brought to this coast for service.
At the present time there is but
one submarine signal bell in operation in British Columbia waters, and
it. is worked from the Sandheads
lightship, Ii is not known where tho
three new bells will be installed. If
the C.P.R. and other steamship companies operating vessels in ihe coastwise trade see fit to eiiuip their
steamers with receiving apparatus, it
is almost certain that, the new aids
to navigation will be establish^ in
the inside passage. Otherwise do
bells will probably lie moored in
promlent positions off the West
Coast, so as to be of assistance to
the trans-Pacific liners In making

Submarine signal bells are a new
taing on this coast, but they have
been operated with great success on
the eastern coast and seamen say
that the.'-' are of the greatest assistance in foggy weather. This coast i«

TRADE  FOR   POUT.
With the completion of the Grand
Trunk Pacific ii is announced by officials of the company that attention
will be given io the transpacific
trade and that as soon as the road
is in good running order a line of
steamships will be plying on the
Pacific connecting with that land
line.
This will mean that Prince Rupert becomes immediately a most
important seaport. It means, moreover, that steamship lines plying the
Pacific will be attracted here to
handle the ever-increasing trade and
with that there will come the desire
on the part of all railwaays that may
be constructed in the north to get
to this port with their steel, and
thus come into the sphere of influence of the ocean trade that will be
built up.
The Pacific Great Eastern is to be
continued from Fort George north
into the Peace River territory.
There it will meet the line that is
projected from the N'aas through
the Groundhog and on eastward
whenever that road is constructed. It
will in all probability be found in
the interests of that .<aas road to
build on to Prince Rupert, deflecting
south a little rather than conn* out
at the mouth of the Naas. it will be
up to Prince Unpen lo endeavor to
bring aboul some arrangement
whereby that, will be possible, and
then Priuc Rupert will have a loop
circling about through this rich
north ami bringing all tiie Irade of
that  territory  to this port.
Every railway line buiil through
the north will aid in developing the
whole of the country and in bringing to this city, the metropolis of
the north, its full share of trade.
With the construction work promised
in the next few years in the way of
railways in ihis northern section of
tiie country there is good times assured to ihe city. If Prince Rupert
citizens are alive io the opportunities a large share of that money will
find its way here.
AGRH JULTURAL   NEEDS.
The main recommendations
contained in the report of the
Agricultural Commission that
was appointed by the Government are as follows:
Establishment of a credit
commission io make loans to
farmers on improvements.
Employment of prison labor
in manufacture of tile drains
and in lime quarrying. Prisoners to be paid lor their work
while so employed.
Enlargement of rural telephone system, with Government
aid.
Contract system on public
roads.
Establishment of board of
Immigration to afford financial
aid lo immigrants.
Establishment of training
schools for child immigrants.
Development of co-operative
system.
Govern nient aid lor central
markets.
Enlargement or agricultural
education.
Separate portfolio for agriculture with advisory board of
practical  farmers.
Inauguration of close settlement   on  living  areas.
Government . aid in artesian
well   boring.
Amendmenl to Noxious Weeds
Act.
Establishment of quarantine
areas   that   are  pest-infected.
Greeks, and it is claimed that they
make splendid bread from flour made
in the great mills at Harbin from
Manchui'ian wheat. Egypt, however,
both modern as well as ancient, is
fu'l of interest to bakers. As a said
before, the first mentioned baker in
the Hebrew scriptures was Pharaoh's
servant. This gentleman was evidently an important official in the
palace pud |no doubt possessed a
decent baking establishment, even in
those days, some 1600 years before
Christ.

Almost exclusively scientific in interest, only one exhibit in the collection of specimens brought home
from the Antarctic by the Terra
Nova, and displayed for the first
time at the Natural History Museum,
South Kensington, London, is directly connected with the ill-fated
inarch of Captain Scott and his gallant companions to the South  Pole.
This is a little card of mineral
specimens selected from the 3-r>
pounds of rock cbippings which the
party gathered on the lieardmore
Glacier and clung to so tenaciously
to the last. But for the extra
weight those specimens represented
it is just possible, painful though
the thought may be, that. Captain
Scott's expedition might have struggled on to the next depot, and saved
the lives of all concerned. There, al
all events, are the hard-won specimens that were found with the
dead bodies In the tent on the barrier Ice, many months afterwards,
mid they represent the most human
and touching feature in the collection.
The specimens are small pieces, a
few ounces in weight each, of dol-
erlte, dark colored shale, anil an inferior coal from .Mount Buckley, Almost, Identical with minerals of
the same kind found In Derbyshire
and Northumberland, they Indicate
ilint under its mantle of perpetual
snow the Antarctic bears abundant
evidence ol other conditions, aria of
:i climate linking ii very long ago
wiiii pleasanter purls of the world,
These, like the oilier exhibits, are
arranged in glass cases in the centre
of the main hall. The scientific specimens include skulls and skins of
three species of seals frequenting
the shores of Cape Adare, the commoner varieties . of which supplied
Lieutenant Campbell and those accompanying him with food when
they were forced to winter In that
neighborhood. The birds collected
were two varieties of penguins,
whose home is In these desolate solitudes.
It was lo investigate the habits of
the king penguin In particular that
Dr.   A.   Wilson  made  an    expedition
in June, 1911, io Cape Crozler, performing a remarkable and trying six
weeks journey with two companions
in total darkness. They returned in
August, after endless hardship with
three skins and three eggs as the
reward of long labors. All the other
birds—-skuas, petrels, fulmars,
shearwaters and the gigantic molly-
hawk—in Ihe collection possessed
great wing power and consequent
ability to cover wide spaces in
search of food. Of insect life the
Antarctic is singularly destitute,
practically the only specimen being
a minute "spring-til" Inhabiting wet.
moss above high water mark, an insect very similar to one often found
in rotten  wood  In  this country.
The fishes brought, home are not
numerous or striking from a popular
point of view, but the smaller things
of the frozen sea, gathered from the
depths in Irawls or collected on the
surface In  silk  nels    are numerous
and varied.    It is curious to notice
sea anemones, very similar to those
of our own shores, from such depths.
The star-fish  are many, and    often j
beautiful In form or design. Shrimps'
of one    species or another,    small
