With  Nothing to Subsist   Upon  Except What He Pinked Up He
Did Not Fare Very Well.
O'Reilly, the prisoner who was
held in the city lock-up charged with
robbing the little confectionery store
on Second Avenue a week ago, Is
again in jail here. He arrived from
Terrace last night in the custody of
Provincial Officer Parsons, who made
the arrest there yesterday. O'Reilly
did not sleep in the jail kitchen lasi
night. He occupied a cell and will
this morning answer a charge before
Magistrate Carss of having broken
jail.
He has already been committed
for trial on (he other charge, of
breaking into the store. On that
count he will have to answer before
Judge Young, probably this afternoon or tomorrow.  If committed for

be laid before the county judge for
him to elect as to the method of

O'Reilly, who broke out of the
kitchen lock-up Saturday night or
Sunday morning, says he has no way
of figuring out the exact time, but he
says they were coming out of the
theatres when he passed out on his
pilgrimage along the railway line.
With no provisions except what he
gathered, he lived on rabbits and
such birds as he was able to kill on
the tramp to Terrace.
BANQUET GIVEN BY
SONS OF ENGLAND
Magnificent Turn Out of Members
of the Society And Friends At
Central Hotel Last Night—High
Class Speeches Followed  Repast
St. George's Day was fittingly celebrated last night at the Central Hotel when the Sons of England gave
a magnificent banquet, which, as
usual, took the form of a patriotic
event very largely. Mr. and Mrs.
Black prepared a line dinner for the
occasion and the dining-room was
taxed to Its capacity. The menu consisted of the following:
Colchester Natives
Surrey Celery and Stuffed Olives
John Bull Broth
English Gobbler   with   Trimmings
A   few  Stalks  from  Jersey
A little  Squeal  from  Wiltshire with
a little Eva from  Devon
Yorkshire's   Best  and   Currant  Jelly
A Mixture Mostly "Taters"
Jack  Tar  Omelet
Mince Pies all 'ot       Something Cold
Covent  Garden   Produce
Cheshire Cheese Banbury Cake
Cheshire Cheese
Banbury Cake and Coffee
In keeping with the character of
the banquet, the British flag was
very promlent in the decorations
about the room. The walls also bore
pictures of famous events In the history of England, including battle
scenes and the death of Nelson.
Following the dinner a toast list
was carried through, with Thomas
W. Sllversldes, the president of the
socieiy, as toastmaster. Each guest
wore a rose in his coat. »
The first toast, that of "The
King," was duly honored by the
singing ot "God Save the King."
Rev. Canon Rix, speaking to "The
Day We Celebrate," opend very humorously, saying that he was in
place there. He, like all the rest
there, was a good, loyal Britisher.
He said that the story of St. George
had become somewhat mixed with
classic slories. Many had been tucked
on the legend of St. George. Tbe
Canon traced some of the known
facts connected with the St, George
of history. In Edward Third's time
he was made the patron saint of
England. The speaker said that he
would not on this occasion appeal to
the  patriotic side.
There were two outstanding features in connection with tbe life of
St. George. These were his defense
and honor for woman and his faithfulness at the sacrifice of everything
else for principle. This had been
characteristic of knighthood—the
knighthood from the days of Arthur's Round Table. They were noble
sentiments, the maintaining of protection for motherhood, the home
and the chastity of woman. Such as
women as Mary, Alexandra and Vic
torla on the throne of the nation
stood for these. Things in this line
were/not as perfect in the city  as
Have you a lot of your own? Secure one in Port Edward now.
Tampico, April 23.—The constitutionalist forces in the country and
the federal troops have united to resist the invasion by the United
States, Both opposing sides in the
republic are now, wnen a common
danger threatens, united to fight the
common foe from the outside.
The officer in charge of the Mexican garrison at Tampico which has
been resisting the attacks of the
rebels has now bad his forces augmented by the rebel army that had
been conducting a siege for nearly
ten days.
Pence Arranged.
The commander at Tampico went
out today under a flag of truce. He
conferred with the rebei commander
for some time, apparently discussing
the question of resisting the United
States. In about ten hours firing on
both sides ceased.   The   appearance
stated on good authority that negotiations are under way between the
two leaders to effect a coalition and
thus present a solid front against the
United States in her efforts to gain
control of the country.
Anti-American Leagues,
Washington, April 23.—Private
advices received from .Mexico City-
disclose the fact that subjects of the
United States are in danger of mobs
of Mexicans which are forming anti-
American demonstrations. Americans on the streets are menaced and
threatened with violence here.
Taking Refuge.
The subjects of the United States
are concentrating in the American
embassy for mutual protection, so
serious Is the situation believed to
be. Friends |here lare somewhat
alarmed over the prospects as far as
those In Mexico City as well as else-
in the town later of the rebel   of-! where In Mexico are concerned. The
they might be, but the best men In
the city all believe* ln honoring
womanhood and in respecting womanhood and defending these principles. True Englishmen must know-
there should be no double standard.
When purity was wanted in womanhood the men should give the same
' kind of life as they expected her to?^
give. Defend woman's honor, spurn
the man who will drag her down.
Give a woman the heart and hand of
a true man and rear up a family
that will know what a home means
that will be the bulwark of any nation. St. George stood for holding
woman as a sacred thing.
Live up to a principle and be
ready to die for It. England has made
the cross its national emblem. It
was the duty to strive for what that
flag stood for. She has ban all her
great reforms for the amelioration
of the race as a result of what that
stood for. England had tried to
build up a nation on the principles
of religion It was up to those in
this land to profit by the ideals of
the Old Land and work out a greater
and  better nationality here.
Fear God, love the Brotherhood
and honor the King. He called upon
them to drink to St. George and
Merrle England.
Loud applause followed the drinking of the toast.
George Hill proposed the toast of
"Our Empire." Such a toast needed
no Introduction by him. The toast
was honored by the singing of "Rule,
Britannia" spontaneously.
Dr. Clayton felt it an honor to be
asked to speak to such a toas' and
in a gathering of such a kind as this.
The record of the Empire needed no
panegyric from him. Referring to
the different parts of the Empire iie
said that while they might each
stand alone in some respects, yet
they must feel that they nail all
the remainder with tneni when occasion arose. Was Canada doing her
part? In an educational way, Canada
was taking her part, as instanced
by the standing of Canadians at the
seats of learning. In science, she
took her place. In railroads, Canada
was banded from coast to coast by
turee railways. She had developed a
tremendous territory. From Manitoba to the foothills of the Rockies
might be designated the granary of
Ihe  Empire.
In a military way, he referred to
the part played by the Canadian
voyageurs who went to the Nile. In
tarn South African War to the credit
of Canadians it could be said that
I hey never lost a gun; neither was
there an unwounded Canadian taken
In the war.
He laid stress upon the fact that
the Monroe Doctrine could not hold
fleers without any flag and unmolested by the federals in the place
bore out the report that peace had
been declared between the two parties.
Conflict Ceased.
Along the border of Lower California the Matamoras conflict with
the constitutionalist armies of Huerta has ceased also. Carranza's attitude is taken as indicating that
they have arrived at a satisfactory
solution   of   their   difficulties.    It    Is
situation outside of Mexico City, It
is felt, will be more serious than it
is even in the city.
Iliilisli Warned.
El Paso, April 23.—British subjects in Mexico have been warned
to leave the country immediately.
This warning came from the British
ambassador in Washington.

Washington,     April     23.—Huerta

Situation.
This photograph shows the lirsi I ractlce of the poloisls who arc
defend the international cup against Lord Ashby St. Ledger's English
invaders next June, at I.akevvood, N.J, More than twenty-live well-know n
polo players took the field and tried out the strength of the ponies.
Harry Payne Whitney, who last year captained the Big Four which successfully retained the cup, led the practice. Although Captain Whitney Is
not a candidate for the team this year, he is actively Interested in the
contests and will lend his aid in practice as well as In the supplying of
some of the best ponies in the country. The other members of last year's
team including the new captain, J. Al. Waterbury, and his brother Larry
Waterbury and Devereaux Milburn, who is acknowledged as the greatest
back in the country, were out for practice. Other well-known pololsts on
the field were Foxball Keene, Rene la Montague, .1. S. Phlpps, H. C.
Phlpps and a host of other lesser known players. During the two anil a
half hours of practice it was seen that the players were tn the best of
condition, although the ponies showed the results from a winter of inactivity. However, it Is expected flirt Trainer Fitzpatrlck, who has charge of
the American ponies ibis year, will round the mounts into shape within
a week or Iwo. Early in May the players and ponies will move to Mea-
dowbrook, Long Island, for Ihe final polishing before the big games in
June.
Almost without exception, responsible German critics of the Mexican situation appear to believe that
the American preparations are, as
the Krupps organ, the Neuste Na-

a colossal game of bluff."

FEMINISM AND
ITS OUTLOOK
EDITOR OF CENTURY   MAGAZINE
DEALS  WITH   IMPORTANT
QUESTION.
Women  Will  Have to Vote, He Contends, Without
He I a,V.
The time has come to define feminism.
That is the opinion of Robert
Sterling Yard, editor of the Century
Magazine who believes that feminism  can  no longer be ignored.
"The germ is in the blood of our
women," says Mr. Yard in the April
Century, under the heading -The
Revolt of ihe Women. "The prin-
Clple is in the heart of our race.
The word is daily in the pages of
our newspapers. The doctrine and its
corollaries are on every tongue, The
hope of it, often unrecognized and
denied, lies Inherent in the soul of
every woman. The dread of it rests
heavily upon the ignorant, the timid, the unduly conservative and those
who have outlived the capacity for
unfamiliar thinking.
What  Feminism Is Not.
"But what is feminism? Is it as
the superficial allege, ihe desire of
some women to assume the work and
the ;.laces and the power and the
responsibilities and the rewards of
men? Some women desire these
things no doubt. But this is not
feminism.
"Is it the desire of a few experimental spirits to abolish marriage
and substitute for lifelong monogamy temporary relationships dissoluble at will? This is the dream of
a scattered few, especially in Germany, where a small group is experl-
mi • ng in public. But il is not
feminism.

nature  only
their own success in self-chosen, appropriate paths unhampered by laws
or conventions from which men are
exempt—these we take it, constitute
the ultimale object of the revolt of
women.
"And that sums up feminism, considered as a great, instinctive human
movement. It. is another and a very
great step toward Ihe realization of
human freedom. Freeing the women
follows naturally, and in civilization's own good time, upon freeing
slaves.
■■Feminism, then, is in essense and
fact a spiritual attitude. But it fol-
lows, as the nlghl tbe ilny, that, to
ho effective, there is involved the
power, as well as the principle of
freedom. Women must become the
civil and the social equals of men.
It makes little difference whether or
not -hey shall use this power; the
iin t :hal tl •-.-■ , assess it, rather thai
they should not be forbidden Its possession, is the magli that will break
the shackles. The object of feminism
is to niuke women equal stockholders with men In Die business of
life.
"Like every demand for human
freedom, feminism will succeed; and,
when it does come to pass, the human race will attain for the first
time its full efficiency. Meantime let
us possess our souls In peace so far
as concerns tiiose who are proclaiming creeds which civilization never
will  grant."

PRINCE   RUPERT   JOURNAL
BRITAIN LEADS IN
AVIATION FOR WAR
Empire Has Been   Quietly   Building
Greatest Fleet of the Nations
i —Rapidly Expanded.
William Ewart Gladstone was the
last British statesman who could
make popular reading with a speech
expounding the annual budget of
Government appropriations, writes a
London correspondent. Winston
Spencer Churchill has done the same
thing for the naval estimates. The
First Lord of the Admiralty compelled the House of Commons to listen
for two and a half hours while he
gave a review of the latest achievements in naval science so interesting
that even the "Little Navy men
kept their seats to the end.
Battle between great modern ironclads, the First Lord described as
"more like a battle between two eggshells striking each other with hammers" than two men In armor striking at each other with heavy swords.
"The offensive power of modern battleships is out of proportion to their
defensive power. Never was the disproportion so marked. In the light
of that illustration the awful importance of good gunnery must come
home to us—the importance of hitting first and hitting hard, and keeping on hitting, and tne necessity of
spending money in arriving at the
highest  possible efficiency."
Britain Leads in Flying.
Mr. Churchill believes that the
British Navy leads the world in flying.
His personal exploits in that direction have been criticised as foolhardy for one of his position. He
promised to give his leilow members
a unique exhibition later in the session by bringing a fleet of airships
over the Parliament Buildings, "if
the House will take it kindly," he
remarked, "in order to remove the
doubts which lurk in some breasts as
to the existence of aircraft in possession either of the naval or military services."
The Admiralty now possesses fifteen airships, ten of which are large
vessels of over forty-nve miles an
hour speed, with 62 seaplanes, and
41  ordinary aeroplanes.
Flying  Squadron  Growing.
Attached to the flying service altogether are 126 officers and 500
men, and he predicted that the numbers would reach 180 officers and
1,400 or l.fiOO men before the end
of the year. When he came to fhe
Admiralty, two and a half years can,
there were nine machines, Five stations have been equipped along the
coast with full arrangements for
bousing machines and quarters for
officers and men, and two more are
under construction.
Special seaplane vessels are being
built, which can accompany a fleet
and carry several machines.
"Of course the heavy seaplanes
which we are developing now," the
First Lord said, "will carry formidable explosives which could be dropped on transports. They carry wireless telegraphy,  which enables them
to signal 120 miles effectually, and
they have been quite recently able
even to receive a message while ln
the air."
Wireless on Airships.
On the vital topic of the British
navy's steps to introduce oil as fuel
for warships and to secure sufficient
supplies thereof, the First Lord's explanations were noteworthy, principally for what be refused to say.
The Government maintains the
greatest secrecy concerning the location of the oil reserves as well as
the sources of supply. The sum of
$7,500,000 was asked as an appropriation for the oil reserves, but the
First Lord explained that with the
cost of tanks and pipe lines to deliver the oil at the jetties rtuich more
is  being spent.
"Oil in quantities has been purchased and is In the country and
large quantities will reach us during
the period covered by the new estimates,' was the most explicit information he condescended to give.
'"The great exertion has been
made. There is no difficulty in obtaining  oil,"  he said.
Opposition newspapers have hinted strongly of scandals in connection witli oil contracts, and accused
the Government of favoring capitalists who are its friends. Rupert
Gwynne, M.P., pressed .Mr. Churchill to publish the contracts, and particularly wanted to know whether
the Mexican Eagle Company, of
which Lord Cowdray is the head,
was among the favored ones. The
First Lord quoted a memorandum
from the Royal Commission which
investigated the question of oil fuel,
asserting that secrecy regarding
naval supplies was necessary. He refused to give the names of contractors, and would only say that
Mexico is one of the countries from
which oil is being obtained.
An Oil Tank   Fleet.
Some news of the campaign for
oil did crop out in the speech. The
Admiralty has been building a fleet
of oil tank steamers very quietly.
Four are already in use and ten
more are under way. Large ships,
which would be in the line of battle
during war, will continue to depend
upon coal, but the Cardiff product
has become obsolete already, he
said, for light cruisers of the latest
type, all of which are equipped with
oil-consuming engines. Torpedo
boats, destroyers and the smaller
craft generally are consuming oil.
The radius of action of a fleet
with oil-burning engines would be
increased forty per cent, and the
lighting strength'of a fleet would be
increased twenty-live per cent, because of the greater facility of refueling at sea in all weathers, so
that ships would not be obliged to
return to their base for coaling. The
uduction of stokehold force would
ne fifty-live pei  cent.
CLASHING AS
TO AUTHORITY
PROPOSITION TO CALL FOR TENDERS   FOR   DIGGING   POST
HOLES VOTED DOWN.
The Board of Works Will Carry Out
That Undertaking
Now.
A proposal made last night at
Council that the digging of holes for
the pole line be let by tender brought
Aid. Maltland to his feet with strong
denunciation of it.
Aid. Maltland pointed out that if
that course were followed they would
have to let the work to the lowest
tenderer, no matter where he came
from. Why not do it by station
gangs? The work could then be done
by local men.
Aid. Montgomery favored the station work, as it was working out well
now.
Aid. Dybhavn pointed out that one
of the gangs at the lake would lose
money.
The mayor explained that the difficulty arose over the fact that the
electrical branch had thought the
work should be done by it and had
so proceeded. The board of works
felt it should come under it.
The matter was finally left to the
board of works to carry out, using
the best means possible.

Dated 3rd Jauary, 1914. f27
At the Council last night a question was presented for an answer by
Aid. Montgomery dealing with the
question of fines to keepers of bawdy
houses. Aid. Montgomery asked who
was responsible for the collection of
fines of $25 from keepers of bawdy
houses, and these people being allowed to go back to the district.
The mayor said that the police
commissioners had this year simply
instructed the chief of police to see
that order was maintained. The chief
had told him that in order to keep
order and owing to some disorderly
conduct some are brought before the
magistrate. If a second conviction is
got they are allowed out on suspended sentence, which allows those offending to leave the city.
Aid. Montgomery oojected to any
money being put into tne city treasury from that source. He would on
the first offense have them allowed
to get out of the city.
The mayor said that there was no
intention to adopt a system of fines
from that quarter. That was not the
system followed in 1912, and the
chief informed him that last year
there was no such  system  followed

I MTLII FORCES.
The action of the United States in
taking a pan in the Mexican situation has resulted In what it was
generally expected would follow
namely, the uniting of tlie conflicting
sections in the southern republic. It
may he that this will restore peace In
Mexico quicker than any other
course would. If so, it will be but an
other proof that a display of force is
offen the best means of promoting
peace.
CANADA'S    RAILWAY    ROMANO!
There is material for the pen or
the writer of romance in the linking
up of Old Quebec with Young Prince
Rupert, says the Victoria Times. The
ancient capital looks down upon the
magnificent waterway along which
passes the products of this rich country to the battlefield of the navies of
commerce and the markets of the
Old World. Behind it are three centuries of human endeavor, Canada's
heroic age. At the other extremity
the progressive new port gazes out
upon the great Pacific, destined some
day to surpass the Atlantic as the
scene of mercantile activity, just as
the Atlantic dethroned the Mediterranean,
DEVELOPING   COUNTRY.
At Willow River on the line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific, east of
Prince George, there is being built
at present and soon to lie completed
the largest sawmill outside of Vancouver. A. C. Frost, of Chicago, is
the man behind the concern, and he
haB invested a quarter of a million
dollars in it. it will be in operation
April 30.
Such undertakings as these, along
with the interests of the Grand
Trunk Pacific, are bound to make
Willow River and Stuart River two
of the best new towns of British Columbia, says an Edmonton exchange.

• water  were it  not for  the fact  that
ie    British   fleet  ruled  the   waves.
■ lei-many  and  Japan  would  not  re-
sped  the Monroe  Doctrine, so without the British supremacy of the sea
I where  would  the doctrine stand?
Britain had become great through
: her humility. It was up to Canadians
as pan of the Empire to live up to
the traditions.
"Our Province"  was proposed   by
i E.  A.  Woods in  a  brief   speech.    It |
, was drunk io the singing   of   "The
.Maple Leaf For  Ever."
Responding to the toast, William
Manson, M.P.P., said that few, if
any, i resent had been born in British
Columbia. They all had adopted the
province as their home. British Columbia Was to become the greatest
province in the Dominion. With ihe
railway construction now in progress
and the construction of the Panama
Canal it would soon become the gateway of the Dominion as never before. He referred to the splendid
educational advantages. With the
University now building this would
be increased. He felt that such a society as the Sons of England did a
splendid  work.
T. D. Pattullo, speaking also to
the toast, said that the Lord had
been good lo British Columbia. Perhaps that was due to the fact that
Heaven helped those who helped
themselves. He welcomed all that
came in. They should see that all
who got here were welcomed so that
they stayed here.
"The City We Live In" was proposed by J. H. Hilditch, who made
an appeal to them all to be loyal to
Prince Rupert and make it the best
city in the province. The linking up
of the line of railway would result
in an increase in population and
there was need of increased accommodation in the hotels and rooming-houses.
The toast was drunk, followed by
the singing of "We're here because
we're here."
Mayor Newton responding to the
toast did not believe tnat there
would be any trouble in the way of
accommodation. He felt that the citizens would rise to the occasion and
provide the accommodation. He went

In an article dealing with the

ing threatened in order to exact a

carried out in the city at the present I
time.   He  praised   the  Sons  of  Eng-
land, which organization bid fair to |
be  the  strongest  in  the  city.
Other toasts honored in the closing hours of a long banquet were:
"The Motherland," proposed by A,
H. Silversides and responded to by i
Fred Stork; "The Ladies," proposed
by G. S. Fitzmaurice and replied to
by Principal Brady; "Kindred Societies," proposed by A. W. Edge and
responded to by S. D. McDonald;
and "The Press," proposed by Frank
Salter and responded to by 11. F. McRae.
During the evening a number of
vocal selections were given. These
included "The Death of Nelson," by
J. E. Davey; quartette by Messrs.
Waddell, Evans, Davies and Woods;
"Land of Hope and Glory," by E. V.
Ling; selection by R. W. Frond;
"The Veteran," by Meth Davies;
"Out on the Deep," by S. Darton; selection by .J. L. Ewart; selection by
J. F. Hutchinson; selection in costume by Mr. Owens. The Imperial
Orchestra played during the banquet,
to the delight of all. Principal Brady
recited "The Charge of the Heavy
Brigade," and in reply 'o a demand
for it gave -The Charge of the Light
Brigade   also.
At the opening of tiie proceedings
a message was read from Frank Ellis, a former president of the society,
from South Fort George It read:
"Just arrived here, after 45-mile

j Ccluelet  Peninsula,  between   Wreck
Bay  and   Long    Bay    and    Kennedy

GERMAN PAPERS SAY
UNCLE SAM IS BLUFFING
i Continued from Page One.)
'As for the result if Huerta now
accords the desired salute of 21
guns, as far as I can see the American fleet will have to sail for home
again on the principle of 'great cry
and little wool.' This result on public
opinion in America might be unpleasant for the government and therefore it is, after all, possible that the
stone once set rolling cannot be
stopped."
Professor Schiemann and other
notable commentators on American
affairs decline to express an opinion
at the present juncture.
German military opinion inclines
to the belief that there will be a tremendous muddle, because for safety's sake American invading troops
will have to calculate on having ail
Mexicans under arms against them.
There will be no reliance possible
on the followers of Huerta or Villa.
On the whole, the sentiment of
politicians seems to be one of relief
that at last America has determined
to end the intolerable chaos.

ENLARGING SCOPE
OF DISTRICT OFFICE
The policy of the Provincial Government with respect to this northern part of the country seems to be
to give all the advantages that are
possible in the acquiring of exact information for those who wish to engage In farming in its various lines.
In the locating of A. H. Tomlinson
here as horticulturist there seems to
have been no mistake made by the
Government and the intention seems
to be to aid Mr. Tomlinson ln all
ways possible.
The latest move in this direction
has been the naming of an assistant
to him in the office here. The assistant is one well qualified for the
post and he is expected to reach the
city in a lew days now. It is Maurice
II llowitt, another graduate of the
Ontario Agricultural College at
Uuelph, Out. Mr. llowitt has been
located for some little time at Fort
George In connection with the Department of Agriculture of this province. Before coming west he had
had experience In a practical way after leaving the college at the Jordan
Harbor Experimental Station in Ontario.
Mr. llowitt has made a specialty
of gardening and is uierefore well
qualified to enter upon the duties
here. The policy of the Government
in this section of the province, in
view of the fact that it is likely for
some time to come to be a first-class
section for the raising of vegetables
and fruit is to give more than passing attention to that line of farming
In this territory. Mr. Tomlinson has
therefore been selected for the important post that he has been assigned to here and is now to be assisted in the extensive operations
that are to be carried out by one
who is likewise well qualified to give
assistance in that line of operation.
On Saturday Mr. Tomlinson went
to Terrace, where the experimental
plot is to be opened up. There accompanied him on the trip Mr. Ped-
die, who is to have charge of the station. Mr. Peddie has had long experience in raising vegetables. At the
present time the land that has been
selected for the purpose Is being prepared for the planting. In the meantime Mr. Tomlinson is laying out the
scheme upon which the plots will be
divided so that the best results may
lie obtained. Just as soon as the land
is ready for the planting, operations
will  begin  there.
In a few days now, Mr. Tomlinson will leave for Bella Coola to look
into the operations there under Mr.
urant, who has charge of the plots
in that southern part. With the arrival of his assistant, there will always be .someone in the office here.
Incidentally, it is expected that Mr.
Howltt will he of great assistance in
connection with the efforts that are
being made in the city bounds in the
matter of raising flowers and vegetables.

ships after a protracted hearing at
tbe Court House in Vancouver a
few days ago. Decision In favor of
the Crown had been given by Mr. R.
S, Lennie, sitting at Nelson as a spe-
lia] commissioner under the Taxation Act, and against tills Mr. lleinze
appealed.
As presented to the Court of Ap-!
peal the facts or the action, which I
involve the transfer of the Columbia
and Western Railway from the control of Mr, lleinze to that of Sir'
Thomas Shaughnessy and Mr, It. I),
Angus, of the Canadian Pacific Railway   are   in   outline   as   follows:
In 1S9S Mr. lleinze entered into
an agreement with Sir Thomas (then
Mr. Shaughnessy) and Mr. Angus io
Bell them the control of the railway
for ?S00,000 plus a half interest in a
land grant from the Provincial Government, which the Columbia &
Western Railway had at that time
earned. The money was paid, and the
control passed from Mr. lleinze to
Messrs. Angus and Shaughnessy. Mr.
lleinze has, however, never requested
the purchasers or the Columbia &
Western to grant him the half Interest  stipulated  Cor.
if the lands had. at any time after 1898, been granted to Mr. lleinze
he would under the statutes have
been liable to taxation. The lands are
said in Be unsalable for the figure
that would have to be charged for
tLi m ai the present time, and, If
the government succeeds in the case,
he .- ill have a big bill of taxes to
foot.
Mr. Heinze's half interest as claimed ij the Go\ eminent, is in 580,257
ai n - T lese lands are now vested
in t!u- Crown subjeel to the half in-'
i-'i - It Is dmitted by the Colum-I
bia Western and the Government
that the appellant is entitled to this
interest, and the province is endeavoring to assess his acreage for
taxation.
The case for the appellant is thai
he has no real Interest In the lands,
but merely a covenant: with Sir
T i ins*Shaughnessy and Mr. Angus
to gi • him the half'interest whenever he desires to receive it. lie also
Contends that, regarding his rights
as a chose in action, the interest Is
nol taxable by ihe province at the
situs ol any action brought must be
either in Quebec where the agreements were entered upon, or in the
United States where the appellant resides.
The Crown's answer is that, as far
as taxation goes, the right of situs
urged by the appellant does nol apply
where the action Is one where judgment could only be enforced In a
particular place. It is argued hypothetical^ that, if Mr. lleinze wished
to gel title to his interest, he would
bring action here, and that judgment would not be withheld on the
grounds that his counsel bases argument in part upoll-       *'"*i *   - "
Mr, A. II. McLean, K.C.j appearing
for the Provincial Government,
strongly urged thai the appellant was
simply trying to escape taxation.
"Everyone who holds property in
this country," he said, "should give
his share towards the   upkeep

CHARACTERISTICS
OF HON.F.COCHRANE
THE MINISTER OF RAILWAYS AT
OTTAWA   IS AN  INVETERATE
WORK lilt.
He Is ii Man of Remarkable Tenuolty
of  Purpose ami   Dclcl-mina-
tion.
Hon. Francis Cochrane, minister
of railways and canals in the Rorden
Government, has left Canada for a
much-needed rest. The career of Mr.
Cochrane since assuming office has
undoubtedly been characterized by
devotion to duty, Belf-saorifice and a
keen regard for the public weal.
Even his political opponents assert
that his industry has been his physical undoing, and that had he been
less eager for work he would not
h • •■ been compelled to seek a rest
during the middle of the session.
While his general health is nol shattered, yet, acting upon the advice
of his doctors and his colleagues, no
has thought It wiser to leave the
scene of his labors for a short period.
Next to public works, it is well
known that there is' no other department in the public service at Ottawa
more exacting and more strenuous.
When it Is recognized that the prosperity and advancement of the Dominion of Canada are linked up with
waterways and railway transportation, the greatness of the task devolving upon the minister in charge
can be realized. Mr. Cochrane has
been unceasing in his activities
since he assumed office. One would
have thought, that the unfortunate
heritage of the Laurier government
would have been enough lo have occupied his whole time for years to
come. Rut it was not so. With
the eye of a master, he surveyed the
whole transportation problem from
coast to coast. He saw what was
lacking and he supplied the need.
He did not talk much, but inaugurated the movement of doing
things.
A Mun of   Silence.
Indeed, much of the success attending upon the administration of
the minister of railways and canals
is due to his silence. Hitherto il
has almost been accepted as an axiom
in tbe life of a successful public man
that volubility on all occasions should
prevail. But Mr. Cochrane had
no patience with such a doctrine.
A successful result has been noticed,
particularly in the House of i ominous, where railways ano canals provide an ever-ready subject for the
loquacity of certain eastern and
western Liberal members. One of
the interesting features in the House
Hundred-Ton Club House
Towed Over Eight Miles
In order to defeat the high cost of building, a man in Massachusetts
moved bis house over a small mountain to a village ten miles away.
Local option, high taxes, disagreeable neighbors, too much mother-in-law
and other causes of mental and physical disturbances have caused many
a man to long to "hike" hut the deterring force has often been, "I own
my own home." Now the dissatisfied son-in-law can tell his motherin-
law to kiss herselt goodbye, bundle up bis wife and house, and migrate to
new pastures green. This unusual picture shows a clubhouse weighing
one hundred tons being towed across Great South Bay, a distance of

things. Mr. Cochrane has thus prevented the country from being rushed into expenditures unnecessary
and extravagant.
A Fitting Prototype.
If, in modern history, it were necessary to find a prototype to Frank
Cochrane the name of Abraham Lincoln comes naturally to mind. Both
men possess the same rugged virtues
In their dealings with men. Both
men are bluntly honest, caring for
no man's opinion wlien they are in
the right. But, like the great American statesman, the Canadian
minister of railways and canals is
kind-hearted and just. He is single
purposed—to make his work tell for
the good of the people who have
placed  him  in a  position   of public
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ trust and   have given  over into  his
of Commons Is the striking contrast | charge  the  transportation   interests
be! ween Hon. Henry R. Emnierson,
becoming known on account of his
fondness in the House for speech-
making lis "the Maritime Unlimited,"
who was formerly minister of railways in the Laurier cabinet, and
Hon. Francis Cochrane from his den
of silence, but the minister of railways   politely  refuses  to  be    drawn
that have, such an important bearing upon the whole prosperity and
well-being of the country.
No more striking example of the
industry of Mr. Cochrane can be
found than the long and arduous
trip which he took in the summer
of 1912 into the wilds of Northern
Canada,  when   the   subject  of   con-
qualifications to be the terminus of
the railway that is now under construction. Such experiences as were
encountered by the minister of the
Crown could never be repaid by a
country in cash. It was an exhibition of doing one's duty which will
ever remain an example to every
Canadian. Only the other day, on
his recovery from a recent sickness,
the minister took a long journey
over Intercolonial to enquire into the
workings of the system. This he did
against the advice of his physicians.
All Tell of His Industry.
Hon. Frank Cochrane has done a
work that will remain as a monument to his industry and ability.
The construction of the Hudson's
Bay Railway, the deepening of the
Welland Canal, the carrying on of
the great National Transcontinental,
Ray are real achievements that will
remain long after him.
In appearance the minister ot
railways and canals suggests
strength of mind and virility of purpose. The strong, spare frame and
the well-tanned skin speak of the
years spent in the northern part
of Ontario amid its forests and
streams. Though most of his life has
been spent in Ontario, the minister
was born in Quebec, at Clarencevllle,
in 1852. He has been a resident for
many years of Sudbury, where he is
the uncrowned king. He was first
elected to the Ontario Legislature in
May, 1905, and became minister of
lands and mines in the Whitney government.
In 1911, when the anti-reciprocity
wave swept the country, Hon. Mr.
Cochrane was selected by Premier
Rorden to fill the portfolio of railways and canals, though he was not
a member of the federal House at
the time. This striking tribute to
Ills ability was ronflrmed by the electors of Nipissing a few weeks later,
when they selected him by acclamation as their member.
There is no doubt but that the
dogged purpose which has carried
him through a long life from one
success to another will also bring
him back to Canada restored to
nealth. Hon. Frank Cochrane is a
big man in the national life of the
Dominion, and he can be ill-spared
because he typifies in himself all the
qualities which go to the building
up of a healthy and well-ordered
nationhood.

the placing upon business principles  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

German colonial administration
was the subject of a severe cross-
examination in the Reichstag recently. The Times correspondent points
out that the debate showed more
clearly than usual the different views
on colonial expansion held by the
several political parties.
The Socialists are entirely opposed
to the policy of the colonial expansion. They regard the colonies as
burdens and as completely unnecessary from the point of view of providing space for surplus population.
Barely 25,000 whites live in the German colonies, and though their trade
has doubled during t..e last five years
the increase is only three and a half
per cent, of the total German trade
increase. The trade does not amount
to that of Germany with the Cape
Colony, and is less, the Radicals say,
than her trade with England's Crown
colonies.
Further, the Socialists consider
that colonies are the hunting grounds

way was under consideration. Many
another minister would have been
content to have sat in his office and
accepted the testimony and reports
of his engineers. But it was not
so with Mr. Cochrane. He took
long train Journeys, treked through
forest and marsh, canoed down the
long stretch of the Nelson River until he reached its mouth, and then
spent weeks at this port on Hudson's
Bay,    going  carefully    Into   all    its

Air.   Emnierson   tried,    but  time  and

Cochrane has thus done a great service to his country.
In Speech, Brief and Pointed.
The    minister    of    railways     and
canals, in the House of Commons, is
brief,   but   pointed.   While   chary   of
achieving a reputation for verbosity,
he is polite in his answers and clear
in his speeches. Without nourish or
frill, he enunciates a principle or
outlines an argument and is done
with it.
in the administration of his department he exhibits the same quail

the British colonies, which is due,
they consider, to the larger freedom
of the natives there.
The Centre party, on the other
hand, the correspondent of the Times
states, ask that the colonies be administered on religious and moral
lines, and demand more cordial
treatment of the missionaries by the
Government. The Conservatives regard the colonies as an industrial appendage to the Fatherland. The National Liberals also regard the colonies as a useful asset to a capitalistic
country.

retary, in replying to the various
criticisms, declared that the trade of
the colonies with Germany, if relative
figures were taken, showed a marvelous expansion. The value of the colonial wood was required to supply
European markets. The colonies were
not for settlement With the exception
perhaps of German West Africa.
But, Dr. Solf added, it has never
been proved that Germany has a surplus population which makes colonization necessary.
