"No policy will be satisfactory to the people of British
Columbia which does not include a substantial and prompt
fcontribution and THE ESTABLISHMENT OE A FLEET
JNIT ON THE PACIFIC COAST."
The ©ld Order Changeth
' ITII tlio commencement of a new fiscal year great changes
lire to bi' effected in the Financial Department of the Provincial Government und these changes will lie concurrent
Ith the retirement of two nf the best known and most highly respect-
|members of the permanent stuff.   Mr. J. McB. Smith and .Mr. .1.
Anderson, the Deputy-Minister of Finance   and   the   Auditor-
Ineral will leave the service on u retiring pension to whicli their
Irk in the pnst so well entitles them.   They will lie succeeded by
r. W. J. Goepel and Mr. \V. Allison respectively and the change
lich thus affects the personnel of the Department will also mark the
opendence of the office of the Auditor-General nnd the creation
Ja Treasury Board, consisting of the Minister of Finance (Chair-
In), the Prime Minister, the Provincial Secretary and the Attor-
ly-General,   with   the   Deputy-Minister nf Finance ex-officio   ns
cretary.    These will form un Advisory Board to the Provincial
tccutive.   This reorganization of the Department has been brought
|_nt by the passing during the last Session of the House of the
pdit Act, and in order to ensure the success of the new system, Mr.
M. Dunlop, an export accountant, who has had special experience
| work of this nature, has been brought from Ottawa to supervise
initial business of arranging the details of the Department.   Tn
. Mc. James MoBraire Smith, Britisli ('(ilumbia is losing u valued
Ivunt nnd one who has been identified with the Province for many
lirs.   A native of Pownal, P. E. L, where he was born in 1 SMS, he
hie here at the age of twenty-seven and in company with the many
hud been attracted by thc discovery of gold, made his wuy first
till to the Cariboo. Thence hc went to Omineea where he set up in
liinoss and established a supply depot, and it was not till 1S74 that
1 returned to Victoria, tbe eity which was to be his home for sn
|ny years.    After engaging in business here fur five years he entile employ of the Provincial Governmeut in 1879 us auditor,
|l for the last thirty-four years he has faithfully served Ihe conn-
through the successive offices of Auditor-General, Inspector of
liccs and  Deputy-Minister of Finance.    Mr. Smith enters into
prement having earned  the respect and good-wishes of all wilh
Join ho has come in contact.    Mr. .Tohn A. Anderson, the retiring
lililor-Genenil, is a native of Scotland, having been born at Shnw-
Ids nenr Glasgow in 1S42.   Tie had the advantage in curly life of a
Iroiigh business training nt the same time that he was pursuing his
ldios, until passing to Glasgow University, where he won high
Lsicul honours.    At the age of twenty-one Mr. Anderson left bis
Iue and journeyed to New Zealand where he entered the teaching
Ifession and was finally appointed classical master at Auckland
liege.    In 188(1 he migrated to this Province and four days after
I arrival in Victoria was appointed to u position in the Education
Inirliuent.    After serving iu the Education, the Treasury and the
Jiils anil Works Departments, he was finally promoted to the posi-
li of Auditor-General in 1900.   During the whole course nf his
leer in the Parliament Buildings, Mr. Anderson has proved hiin-
|' to be a capable and trustworthy official of the highest, integrity
ile his unfailing courtesy has rendered him one of the most popu-
I figures in the Government Buildings.   The retirement which he
I so well earned will be regretted by all who have hud business
Kings with him in the pnst.   Mr. W. >T. Goepel, the newly appoint-
lDeputy-MInister of Finance, is well known in lmt.h social and
lerninent circles in Victoria,    lie was born in London, England,
Il856, and first enme out to British Columbia in 1875 when he
: a position at Nanaimo.   Later he entered into partnership with
Richard Hall, and in 1S92 entered the service of thc Provincial
ernment as a clerk at Nelson, being appointed two years later
lerninent Agent for AVest  Kootenay.     Tn 189(1 he became  In-
[itor of Government Offices and subsequently undertook the duties
Deputy-Inspector of Revenue.   Tt was in tbis latter connection
■.'ravelling Inspector that, Mr. Goepel gave abundant proof of his
and efficiency, his inspection work in Bossland resulting in the
to the Government of a large sum of money wdiich was being
Jsrted from its rightful destination.    To   his   new  dignity Mr.
Ipol will bring a ripe experience and a sterling honesty of purpose,
This appointment will undoubtedly meet with the hearty approval
;he whole Province.    To Mr. William Allison falls lhe signal
lour of being the first incumbent of the independent office of
llitor-General.   A Scotsman by birth, Mr. Allison has lived nearly
Ihis life in British Columbia and received his business training
Ibe employment of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, at one time
lng as manager for that institution in New  Wesl minster.    On
ling the bank he entered the Government Service ns Agent at
Hazelton, perhaps the most important and the most difficult of all
the Government agencies in the Province. Here Mr. Allison won
golden opinions from all who knew him and succeeded in making his
office a model for tlie guidance of all Government agents appointed
from a later date. His elevation to the Auditor-Generalship is u
well earned reward fnr work well done. So it is that the old order
chnngelh, and as thc Province grows in years and strength the
pioneers wdio laid the foundations for future prosperity and toiled
over figures in thousands that, tlieir successors might calculate in
millions, enter the quiet time of life with their work completed. The
two men wdio are leaving the Government service do so with the full
consciousness that their fellow-citizens are saying that they have
"deserved well of their country."
The Last Post
VISCOUNT WOLSELEY is no more. At eighty years of age
the hero of a hundred fights has responded to the last call,
and so tliere passes from the stage a distinguished military
figure whicli np to twenty years ago occupied a foremost position
among meu of liis class. There was a time when* Wolseley was a
name to conjure with and a brilliant and successful career culminated
in the glorious victory at Tel-El-Kebir whicli brought the hero hi.

emulate them und although fault was found with his methods, it has
never been denied that hc was a supreme organizer and a leader of
victorious campaigns. This success as u general followed nn brilliant
service ns a fighting soldier. A man wdio was wounded at Sebastopol
and Lucknow and who wound up his active military career at Tel-
Kl-Kebir, has unquestioned cluiins to lie regarded as one who has seen
active service. Lord Wolseley turned his experience In good account
in acquiring a remarkable grasp nf detail, which made his "Soldier's
Pocketbook" a vade mecuin for everything connected with cnmp life.
Of laic years less has been heard of the distinguished general. Even
his ascendancy to the office nf Commander-in-Chief could nnt emphasize the important hold he already had on public attention. The
last ten yenrs of his life, during whicli lime his health was nnt nf the
best, developed into a period of rest which is liest described ns

They Did Their Duty
DURING the present week two meu hnve passed nwny who will
li:* suilly missed nnt only in tlieir own circles, but by lhe
citizens nf Victorin generally.    Both were distinguished by
many of the same characteristics,   They wero .men of notable physi
cal strength, force of chnracter, devotion to duty and the highest
integrity. Sergeant Clayards has spent all his adult life in Vietoria
in association with thc locul police force. It is not to belittle the
services nf his colleagues to say that no one officer bas done more to
preserve the high morale of the force and to make Victoria the safe
city to live in whicli it. is. In a similar sphere of public usefulness,
though a less conspicuous one, Edwnrd North has contributed almost
more than any man to the amusement and entertainment of Victorians. For many yenrs past he has had a hand in staging all the
productions that have appeared at the Victoria Theatre, and has done
it under difficulties and iu a manner which earned him the respect of
nil who knew him. Both men wero in the prime of life, with the prospect of many more years of usefulness. Both men were widely
respected and both have left sorrowing families to mourn tlieir loss,
it is not always thut men who fearlessly and honestly discharge their
duty in the humbler walks of life find their services so fully recognized as in the case of Sergeant Clayards and Edward North. It
must bc some comfort to the surviving relatives to kuow the esteem
in which they were held, and it must be an incentive to all tlieir fellows working in howsoever humble a sphere to persevere in the path
of duty; for although the material rewards may not be commensurate
with the energy expended, it is certain tbat to earn the universal goodwill and respect of one's fellows is at least the marl; of a life well
spent, aud in spite of the frailties of human nature we are so constructed that such a guerdon is well worth striving for and well
wortli winning.
Out of Focus
COLLIER'S WEEKLY has done a great deal to achieve
notoriety. Its performances may not always be meritorious,
. but they have a knack of being sensational, if by sensational
is meant something exaggerated to the verge of being startling and
suggestive. One of Collier's highest achievements has been to caricature the Premier and the Attorney-General of Britisli Columbia.
When Artemiis Ward, of sainted memory, started out on a campaign
of this kind he invariably headed his article "Tbis is a Goak." One
Britton Cook, a novice at journalism, is not so wise and so he leaves
his readers to discover it for themselves. Leaving out of consideration the question of good taste, wdiich it would be superfluous to expect from u contributor to Collier's, one cannot but wonder where Mr.
Britton Cook obtained the data on whicli to base his articles. No
one would expect logical deduction or sound judgment from such a
writer, but one hns a right to expect accurate data, even from a cub
reporter. Mr. Britton Cook is wrong in most of his historical
records quoted in the articles on Premier McBride and Attorney-
Goneral Bowser, and if it were worth while it would be easy to show
that must of his conclusions nre as wide of the mark as his record
of the facts. Just what good purpose Collier's hopes to serve by
grotesque misrepresentation of men who occupy so high a position
and wdio have deserved so well of the Province is nnt easy to understand, unless nne is permitted to make a deduction which is nt least
as reasonable and obvious us any made by Mr. Britton Cook, viz..
that he, like Miss Agnes Laut, has allowed himself to be hired by
the Liberal press to belittle men wdio have made the Liberal party of
British Columbia n proverb uud a by-wor I. Since one only has to
turn from Collier's to a A'ancouver weekly nf mongrel political
pedigree und n Victorin daily which has distinguished itself in the
vituperation to find the articles referred to quoted verbatim and with
approval there is little n tn doubt ihul they were written to order,
and wore intended to bc taken as an antidote tn thc spasm wdiich has
overtaken the Liberal party and placed il "hors de combat."

Victoria, March 29,19iai
with bravo men, always tho best of fighters, who have fallen victims
to inadequate transport facilities, insufficient food and inferior
equipment. It looks as if the hand of Fate had struck the hour when
the doom of the Turk had to be pronounced. Tho Young Turks have
.shown themselves as incapable as the Old Turks of enforcing reformatory measures; they havo fallen victims to tho corruption, the
intrigue and the cruelty wdiich have always characterized Turkish
rule. Il is more than thirty years since au outraged civilization demanded that they should be turned "hag and baggage" out of Europe.
They have only been able to maintain a precarious footing because
they were useful as pawns in a game which is now tinished. International considerations will prevent the Allies from taking the last
extreme step, and it. is probable that a treaty will bo concluded which
will leave the Turks little but Constantinople and a footing in Europe.
The treaty cannot be signed too quickly; tliere is now nothing lo be
gained by further delay and certainly nothing by further lighting.
The Turk can expect no support from lhe Great Powers and the
logical conclusion of au ill-conceived and wretchedly executed campaign must he the cession of all conquered territory and the imposition id' a huge war indemnity. That it. will never bo paid matters
little. Let it be registered, and let the world get down again to business, with lhe removal of the paralyzing hand of a war which has
threatened numberless complications, but which could have but
ono result.
Grain Commissioners
THE Dominion Grain Commissioners have visited Victoria
and the ease for the erection of elevators in the Capital City
has been most ably persented to them by a delegation of the
Hoard of Trade consisting of Messrs. Shallcross, Lugrin and Capt.
Logan. Conversing with the Commissioners afterwards, a representative of The Week was informed that they wcre greatly impressed
with the able manner in whicli the case was made out. The speakers
wore concise, logical, moderate and admirably furnished with reliable
data. As a result of this important interview it. may safely be said
that whatever Victoria stands to gain from having made a favourable
impression on tlio Commissioners will materialize. This, however, is
not to say that they will advise the .Dominion Government to build
elevators iu Vietoria; indeed, such a recommendation is highly improbable. The utmost, we may expect is that, they may recommend
Victoria as a suitable port from wdiich to ship grain, and their recommendation may result in Government assistance, but there will he no
grain elevators in Victoria unless they are built either by the citizens,
by the great transportation companies or hy the grain shippers. This
note was sounded at the Board of Trade six mouths ago by Mr. R. T.
Elliott; it was very properly emphasized by The Colonist iu dealing
with the subject tllis week, and they are living in a fool's Paradise
who think thai the erection of grain elevators will be brought about
by any other means.
Parallel Passages
EVERY journalist knows that there is no more deadly form id'
controversy than to print parallel passages, lt is astonishing
how few men sny the same thing today as they were saying a
few years ago. 11 is not men, but principles, that are constant. A
great, writer has said that it is only a fool who never changes his
mind. While, therefore, we look for some degree of consistency,
especially iu our public men, we must not forget that they are human
and that if we I' id absolute consistency wc should be tempted to
doubt it. The Victoria Times, keenly alive to the advantages of the
parallel passage system, lias this week placed the Mr. R. L. Borden of
11112 and L913 alongside of Mr. U. L. Borden of lflOl) and 11)10, and
paraphrasing the immortal poet has challenged its readers to ' look
you on this picture, and on that." While it is true that two blacks
do not make n while and that the "tu quoquo" form of argument is
rather recriminatory than convincing, The Week ventures to suggest
that in order to complete the comparison The Times should print
parallel passages from the speeches of Sir Wilfrid Laurier during the
two periods. There are lots of people wdio do not care a straw about
the Xnval Policy who would be very glad to be placed in the position
lo judge for themselves whether Mr. R. L. Borden could possibly be
as inconsistent as Sir Wilfrid Laurier. This is a problem wdiich rc-
niaiueth unsolved, but which The Week ventures to suggest would be
nearer of solution if this idea were carried out.
Good Old Staffordshire
IT IS uol often that the "Black Country" achieves world-wide
notoriety, bnl thanks to the perspicacity of The Colonist, il
figures very conspicuously this week as a deviser of excellent
rules for governing road traffic. There are not many Staffordshire
men in Victoria, still there are a few, and these will be (find to learn
liml iheir native county is figuring prominently in so good a cause.
The Colonist is rigid when il says that the street traffic arrangements
of Yieoria lean* much lo lie desired. The Week, which has fought this
question lor years, readily acknowledges the excellent supporl that il
has received from The Colonist of bile. The joinl efforts of Ihe Iwn
papers ought lo resull in still further improvement.   The first thing
is lo enforce the new by-law and this is only being half doi I pivs-
0111. Many of the drivers of freighting wagons ignore lhe new rules
and the size and strength of iheir teams enable them lo do so. They
monopolize the middle of lhe road when they should be travelling on
llle loft-hand sich*. They are never in a hurry, especially if lhey are
blocking olher vehicles, and civility is a word unknown in iheir cod*.
There has been a marked improvement iu lhe conduct of chauffeurs,
but solely through Ihe persistent attentions of the police force.   Could
nol lhe officers turn tlieir attention to teamsters, and try lo i vine*.*
thein that there is no such a thing as "a divine rigb" of way?
Child's Play
IT IS easy to understand thai the Councillors of Saanich may have
an honesi difference of opinion on many subjects, including thai
of the appointment of the engineer. It is not difficult lo conceive of public feeling running high and of some degree of bitterness
being engendered, although such a denouement should not be inevitn-
bl. However, as human nature is what it is and Anglo-Saxons are
supposed to have Ihe blood of men iu tlieir veins, perhaps lhe people
of Saanich who have allowed themselves to lie worked up lo a pilch
of excitement on a subject which is not of vital import .linen, need
not. he judged loo harshly.    Tbey will, however, bring down upon
themselves ridicule and some degn f contempt if lhey give way lo
the childish practices which have been indulged in by such unsoxod
creatures ns militant suffragettes. There is not a very wide difference in principle between arson, the pouring of vilrol into letterboxes and the mutilating of an nntoinobilo,   If the miscreants in

Saanich can find no other way of enforcing tlieir views ou public
questions, a comparison with the suffragettes will become inevitable
and in tbis case the comparison can hardly result in a favourable verdict for the sex which claims a monopoly of common sense.
More Policemen
THE civic fathers may be short of funds and they may find it
necessary to economize for some time, but the one thing on
which public opinion will not tolerate any cheese-paring is
that of police protection. Victoria is proud of its police force and
with every reason. It has a fine body of men who have proved themselves to be competent and incorruptible. They have made Victoria
the safest eity to live in on the Continent. This has not been achieved
without hard work and skilful organization. The eity is growing by
leaps and bounds. Every now and then a little band of marauders
manage to land here and commence operations at burglarizing or
safc-chackers, or occasionally, by way of variety, at the hold-up game.
Unless the force is maintained these men will become bolder, they
will come oftcner aud they will stay longer, and Victoria will lose a
greut asset, that feeling of security which has been her proud boast
for so long. The Chief asked for fifteen additional men. After considerable opposition ou the part of the .Mayor, he has been grouted
six..' This number is insufficient, and however difficult it may he to
reduce other appropriations it should be done to enable the Council to
place at the disposal of Chief Langley a full complement of officers,
R New Shipping Port
IT IS very interesting to watch the development of transportation
facilities on the Pacific Coast. Until Iwo or three years ago
Victoria, Vancouver and Xew Westminster were lhe only ports
of consequence iu British Columbia. Then the advent of the Grand
Trunk Pacific awakened the northern ports of the Provinee and 0
new terminus was established al Prince Kupert. The city of promise
aud prospect attained world-wide notoriety and become tbe Mecca oi
tourists and investors. Today it is 0 considerable city with graded
streets, electric light, a sewage and water system, imposing public
buildings and a steady business which, if not booming, is settled upon
a sure foundation and will expand rapidly as soon as the railway
links the East with the West. The latest information as lo lhe date
of this auspicious event is to the effect that trains will be running
through next year. Prince Rupert, however, is not the only port
which' will be affected by this consmnotion. Tliere is eight miles to
the soutli, on the Mainland, a fine natural harbour, wdiich has been
named Port Edward and which is destined to become not only a great
shipping centre, but an industrial site. The entire waterfront, of this
town is traversed by the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway. Port Edward possesses special natural advantages for the easy construction of
wharves and docks, and it is intended that the new port shall bid
agaiusl the older one for a share of the heavy transportation business
iu grain and lumber which will follow the opening of the Panama
Canal and the linking up of lhe (i. T. P. Railway. Port Edward
townsite is to be laid out on lhe most approved lines, and the most
exporl landscape and harbour engineers have been engaged for lhe
purpose.    Altogether il may h muted on as one of the Northern
eilies of the near future. Il is being (inaiiced by prominent men who
have interested English, Canadian and American capital. lis first
industry is lo be thai of sfonc-cutting which is rendered possible by
the existence on lhe Island of a splendid quality of high grade stone
suitable for ihe ornamentation of public buildings. A hydro-electrical
planl has been purchased and will be shipped to Port Edward which
will almost immediately become lhe scene id' industrial activity.

THE EDUCATION OF THE MAN
AT THE FRONT.
By Rev. R. J. Hutcheon, M.A.
Toronto.
EVERY civilization is dependent
nn two classes ot men, who may
be described as "llic men al llic
front." lt mast defend ils institutions unit nil the accumulated wealth
and treasure of the past ngninst ils
enemies, and fur Ihis purpose, il
must rely 011 its common soldiers. In
llic lime uf war tlio man at lhe front
is lhe soldier, and on him falls lhe
pililcss lire of Ids country's foes. Hut
civilisation must also exploit new territory, build new railways, cut down
limber, dig for minerals, and in oilier
ways, conquer nature to satisfy man's
■trowing 1 limine wnnls. and for this
purpose, she iniisl use the common
laboring mnn. In lime of peace, tlio
man nl lhe front is llic miner, lhe
lumberjack, the navvy, cle., and ou
hi 111 falls lhe heavy burden of providing raw material for lhe grent industrial centres of civilization,
The soldier and the frontier In-
hoiirer—these men hnve both been
indispensable to society, aad yel both
mea have been shamefully neglected
by it.
Per obvious reasons Canada's
crime has been agaiusl the frontier
labourer rather Hum llic soldier. Seldom in lhe course of a century has she
been obliged lo call oil the soldier,
but she keeps nn army of millers,
lumbermen, navvies, ele., a quurter of
a million strong, at the front all the
lime, lu proportion lo the wealth
Ihev create, no class of man in Can
ada receives less for it, either in the
way of money returns or iu the way
et' lhe pleasures ami refinements ol'
civilization. They are generally
foreigners who cannol speak our language and who have few powerful
friends lo plead their cause, and,
consequently, lhe general community,
which profits so much by Iheir labours, remains ignorant or indifferent
to Iheir claims year afier year, and
decade afier decade, Tlie politician
sees lo it Ihal lhey nre naturalized
ns soon as the law will allow, nnd
eagerly cultivates iheir acquaintance
at election time. The saloon keeper
makes much of them when pay time
comes around, bill otherwise liltle bus
been done In prepare these men for
citizenship or to carry lo them the
benefits nf lhe civilization whose material foundations they have helped lo
lay.
Under these circumstances it is 11
pleasure to note the work of lhe
Rending Camp Association, iu Ibis
society of social workers. Hie frontiersman has at Inst found a disinterested, devoted, level headed friend.
Thc Association believes that it is
Ihe duly of tho state lo educate Ihe
nulli al lho front with a view bolli lo
his own larger enjoyment of lifo and
lo his future citizenship, hut until
lhe stnte is willing lo undertake ils
own proper work, the Association is
doing* what it can to supply lho do-
llciency. Probably no cdiicatiounl
movement in Canada is more unique
in ils way. The school is a cnr, 11
lent or a shanty, according to the
chnrnctcr mid permanency of the
work iu whieh lhe men are engaged.
The pupils are tidull labourers: Itnl-
iuus, Russians, Hungarians, Greeks,
Macedonians, Bulgarians, nnd olher
foreigners. The lonelier is a sludenl
ur graduate of some Canadian cul-
loge, who has worked along with his
pupils during the day ns miner or
luinberjnek or navvy, earning the
same wages and living lho same kind
of life, Tiie lesson is 0110 iii English or geography or history, as the
class may require, and iu some oases,
where the pupils speak English, iu an
advanced subject.
For thirteen years the Rending
Camp Association has carried on this
kind nf work, providing entertainment, education, rending mallei* and

HOomiug down Menzies Street last
illday I saw a sight wliieh proved
me that though we have advanced
eh iu Ihis century and nre even
gods in many things, common
se still lags far behind when any
rk is being done for the city. It
s between eight and nine-o'clock
the morning and a high wind was
wing from thc north. Parading
,vn the street were two liorse-
iwn sweepers and some way ahead
them was a water-cart.   The latter
H' left a dribble of water out on
i west side of the street, but the
t side had received only the shadow
moisture. Nevertheless, the two
sepers went merrily on raising
st, which promptly Hew back over
ir heads to settle ngnin. As a
oet-cleaning exhibition it was a
|cl;ery; ns a nuisance it wns per-
lt was on a par with something
■aw one day last week.   Tliere was
Jdippery morning, ns you may re-
mher, and for a wonder ashes and
t wcre laid down on the streets
te early. About eight o'clock one

lies behind them. So far, so good,
t in froul, tlie poor horse which was
drngging Hie cart, was slithering about
in n most pathetic fashion, nnd it
never occurred to the honest fellows
who were doing whnt they lind been
told to do, that if one of thenl had
rnu ahead with a few liandfuls of
grit nnd spread it down in front of
the earl, their own horse would have
gained some benefit from the wrrk
whicii it. was doing for the good of its
fellows. ]u this mechanical age, you
see, we don't hnve to think. Others
Ihink for us, and if they are lucky wo
do what we are told to do.
The question of roller-skates is a
perennial cue and one Hint has two
sides to it. I have written before of
the nuisance caused by a gang of
youngsters playing hockey on the
slreet outside your front door because
tlieir mothers won't have them near
their own homes. A friend of mine
who has lately invested in an automobile tells me of a new fear that has
come into his life. He snys that it is
n favourite trick of the youthful
skater lo race alongside a car and at
a suitable moment tn give an unearthly shriek and fall down, giving every
appearance of a boy getting run over.
This is trying to the nerves and is, I
should sny, rather dangerous for tne
boy. But what are you to do about
it? So long as boys are boys, and so
long as they are given roller skates
and are allowed to use them on the
streets, so long will they indulge in
such practices. The unfortunate part
is that when n boy does get killed this
way, it is the automobilist who will
set. the blame, just exactly where the
historic offspring of an egg received

I am delighted to see that some irate
parent has written to the daily press
complaining of the laxity of some people in giving due notice nf infectious
disease, There are some heads of families wdio consider it a personal grievance if they are compelled to isolate
their children if the later are suffering from infectious complaints, and
who seem to bc quite  incapable of
realizing that it is hardly playing the
game to allow other children to run
the risk of contracting the same illness. As was pointed out in The
Colinst recently, scores of parents
look on measles as a more or less
harmless infantile disease which all
children have and which it is well to
gel over once and for all. Such fools
deserve all they get, when measles
nre prevalent and weather is variable
nnd likely to induce complications.

The retail clerks nre making a
strong bid for tlie Saturday half-holiday and I sincerely trust that they
will get it. Of course 1 know nothing about the technical question of

privilege in common with most of us.
There can be no hardship involved on
lhe general public if it has to do its
shopping before niid-dny on Saturday. AVhat with telephones, delivery
wagons, automobiles and the thousand

surely Hie housekeeper can manage to

this is a matter which is right up to
llic public, and if the public will just
for once try and think a little less
of itself, there should be no difficulty in a hardworking class of men
and women getting a day and a half

just before Sunday, is a better day
for a half-holiday than Wednesday.

ROAD BUILDING
(frl
^rz^f^r.
By H. W. Welch
THROUGH dense underbrush, over
logs crumbling with age, around
great trees, a man, mnny yenrs nan
daily pushed his wny through a wilderness. He wns cruising timber. This
same man, now rich, likes to spin
nlong in his automobile over the very
places where, within the ensy recollection of nint ure persons, he wns a
Irnil-muker in the primeval forest.
The trails have become the streets nud
nvenues of Victoria and Vnncouver!
This remarkable transformation in
so comparatively short n time represents, of course, n tremendous output
of human labor. It is needless lo sny
that it has heen labor of great value,
llonils are the first essential iu a
community's development, nnd the
sooner these become good roads, nnd
then streets, nud then well paved
streets, the sooner will the community
become a real city.
Civilization must have good roads
for its onward march. This bus long
been realized. The Romans knew it,
ns is strikingly illustrated in the great
highways whicli they built even ns fnr
north as England. These are massive
highways, but in their construction
tliere was an enormous waste of labor.
The Romans employed an immense
number of captives in their road
building. Our modem way is to use
science.
This modern way had its beginning
during the time of Napoleon Bonaparte, when, in France, some good
roads of stone were constructed,
chiefly for the rapid moving of armies. A very useful mnn, named
Macndnm, began in England in 181 (i
to make roads with n surface of
broken stone. This wns so practical
and satisfactory that the name Macadam has become the word macndnm,
which is still in daily use iu rond making. Macadam's success inspired another road-maker, Telford, a few
years later, to develop rond construction to tlie extent of laying a six-inch
surface of broken stone upon an
arched stone foundation.
Willi the great growth of cities and
the steady increase in Hie rural population, the necessity of good pavements nnd roads has become more and
more widely recognized, nnd there has
been much progress in road and
street construction. We have seen
material improvements in the mncad-
nmized rond, nnd the development of
pavements of brick, granite blocks,
wooden blocks and asphalt.
But hand in blind with the progress
in rond building, the standard of requirements for the road and the street
pavement has advanced.
The qualities now required mny be
enumerated as follows: (1) durability
(2) good footing for horses {'._■ resiliency (.) non-slipperiness (5)
noiselessness (fi) easy drainage (7)
a surface permitting easy cleaning
(8) dustlessness (9) low cost.
The pavements mentioned nil hnve
Iheir merits nnd defects. For instance,
the granite block pavement withstands
lhe wear of heavy traffic, hul is u iisv
nud lucks resiliency, Hint is, Ihe
quality of rebound which is hcl-nf i!
lo horses. Brick is ulso durable, hul
not in as greal degree ns granite, and.
like the hitter, it has the drawback of
noisiness. Another objection is Unit
un'ess this pavement is laid with special cure nnd regnrd for expansion
nnd contraction, il heaves up, giving
the effect of a drum, which settles
down with many cracks. Moreover,
miller present conditions on Hie Pacific Const, brick is n costly pavement.
Wood paving blocks have been largely
used in British Columbia because ol
Ihe low cost of fir and cedar, and
because the discovery of Hie crensot-
ing process hns given tlieie blocks
good wearing qualities. Wooden
blocks give horses an easy footing,
except when covered with mud or
frost. Tliere is a growing question,
however, ns to the wisdom of using
for pavements a natural resource
which is growing more and more valuable, nnd which can be used more
advantageously for other purposes.
The greatest progress has been
made in asphalted pavements, which
came into prominence about thirty-
live years ngo. and have since been
adopted very widely in progressive
cities. Asphalt pavement in Europe
is made of a bituminous limestone, n
natural product, Ihat can lie pulverized nnd applied direct lo lhe roadbeds
us u surface material. It costs too
much, however, to import this product
to this country, and so asphaltic
snndstone is made artificially by combining sand nnd bitumen under heat
and pressure. A heller combination
consists of broken stone, tlle voids
of which are filled with liner stone of
different sizes, sand, and stone-dust
bound together by asphalt cement.
Usually the foundation on which this
is spread is composed of two-inch
stone, laid lo n depth of about six
inches, well rolled. This produces it
very durable pavement, which is
noiseless and hns n considerable
nmount of resiliency. This is lhe most
recent form of paving to make its
appearance on the Pacific Const.
Tliere is, of course, still room for improvement iu pavements, but the very
widespread realization of the importance of fine thoroughfares in tlie
cities and fine highways iu the ocun-
Iry is bringing steady progress in
pavement making, and it probably
will not be mnny years before the
ideal is reached.—Western Canadian

WHARF STREET VICTORIA, B. C.
TJLIIS'US commercial and financial aro quiet. A nation cannot keep up a fast gait all the time. If it tries unreasonably,
disaster comes. It must rest awhile to get breath. Canada
just now is taking a breathing spell. It might have gone a little
further, but* for international tight money falling across the wny.
Stock exchange transactions are few and poor in volume. Prices
are low. Loan and mortgage companies are gathering new strength
for spring operations. The banks are not calling further loans to any
extent, but are standing pat—a far better omen than if they had
continued to call. Collections generally are slow. Heal estate is
inactive. Surest sign of between seasons is the amusing and unsuccessful attempt to revive public interest in unhappy mining schemes.
These indications are not for mourning. They are a sign of spring
fever and national health.
Tight money is a good check to youthful enthusiasm. If this
country got all tlie funds it needed without question, it would soon
be heading for a sharp panic and a long period of depression. The
fact that money is difficult to obtain now has bad a salutary effect
in many places. As an example, our municipalities generally had
planned an extensive list of local improvements, some of thein in the
luxurious class. The market conditions have caused tliem to ponder
and to shave the list until only urgent necessities remain. The output of new securities of all kinds has been lessened. That* will help
matters, too. Credit is slowly being transformed to cash. This must,
be done occasionally to avoid the temptation of building a fabric of
paper. Hesitancy to approach the London market is apparent, and
the London market knows best how it needs a rest.
So tbe quiet being enjoyed is a good thing, for we know tbat at
foundation there is strength unlimited. Population is increasing,
naturally and by immigration; homes are multiplying—and homes
are a vital necessity to industry; railroad corporations continue tu
line their steel; crop acreage is expanding; existing industries arc
extending and new ones being born; British and foreign cnpital still
likes this Dominion. Back of all are vast natural resources and
opportunities that would turn a desert green with envy. All of which
is sufficient, even in dull days, to give ns the pink of enthusiasm.

THERE was much activity in loan
and mortgage spheres on tho
Pacific Coast last year. The annual
report of the Britisli Columbia Permanent Loan Compnny for 1912 shows
thnt this progressive corporation obtained n good shnre of the business
offering, which helped to mold n satisfactory balance sheet of the year's
operations. Out of the profits a sum
of $133,670 wns disbursed in dividends of vnrious kinds. The interest
on currency and sterling debentures
totalled $41,000. Tlie sums mentioned
were transferred to lhe following accounts, respectively: Expense fund,
$66,605; contingent fund, $15,000;
and reserve fund, $47,438. The reserve fund now amounts to the substantial sum of $600,000. Adding to
thnt the total of tlie contingent, fund
and balance of prolit and dividend
account, altogether $29,037, the company has n surplus of $629,037.
The British Columbia Permanent
lionn Company hns n strong list of
nssets. Chief among Ihem naturally
nre lirst mortgage renl estate loans,
whicii total $3,568,200. Share lonns
amount to $77,313; office property is
valued at $425,350, and other assets
bring the total lo $4,141,259. The
capital stocks of lhe compnny tire divided ns follows: Permanent, $844,-
297; full pnid and prepnid, $292,550;
nnd instalment, $320,579. Currency
nnd sterling debentures nnd accrued
interest total $958,660. Deposits and
accrued interest amount to $719,547.
This company has mnde rapid progress in comparatively shorl time and
bus assumed a leading position in the
western Held espeeinlly. The enterprising management nnd directorate
have undoubtedly seen to it that they
have the most ample securing for
loans advanced.
THEOTJGH President I"). C. Collier, of the Panama-California
Exposition lobe held in 1914 at. San
Diego, the Canadian Government bus
been invited to participate in thnl
celebration of the completion of the
Panama Cannl. Letters and memorials
have been addressed to His Royal
Highness, the Duke of Connaught,
Rt. lion. R. L. Morden, the Canadian
■Premier; Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture; lhe Members of
Parliament nnd commercial organizations in Canada, embracing the invitation to participate.
The suggestion is made to Ihe Canadian officials that a collective exhibit of Canada's resources—agricul
tural, mining, and forestry—be made,
demonstrating to the lionieseekot* nnd
investor the splendid opportunities
awaiting them in Canada, particularly
in the Canadian Northwest. The
opening of the canal is expected to
direct to the Western Coasts hundreds of thousands of desirable immigrants from Europe and doubtless
thousands of these will seek new
homes in the Canadian Northwest. As
the Snn Diego exposition is designed
to direct these to places of greatest
individual opportunity, it is believed
here thnt Canada would add greatly
to the population development of the
Northwestern provinces by a demonstration of the wonderfully rich opportunities to he found there.

IN the announcement whicli the Provincial Forest Branch is making
regarding timber for sale along the
ft. T. P. between Yellowhead Pass and
Fort George, tliere appears an item
of "5,000,000 feet of timber killed iu
1912."
The Qovernment is anxious in the
interest of the country to have the
limber taken out nnd used before decay nnd insects get a (Inn hold. As
is well known, dead timber is not able
lo resist either of lliese enemies and
il; is only a matter of time before what
was perfectly healthy wood is lllled
with a net-work of insects' borings
nnd fungus growths. Damages to the
extent of over $5,000,000 annually are
estimated to lake place in Eastern
Cannda and the United Stntes.
These losses may not be paralleled
in the West, but there is undoubtedly
vast depreciation going on at ull times
nnd this will become more nnd more
noticeable as time goes on und timber
values increase.
The rate, of deterioration of tlre-
killed timber depends a great deni on
the size of the timber and proportion
of snpwood. Trees under throe foot
iu diameter, if killed outright by a
crown fire, arc usually unmerchantable
in eight or ten years; larger trees,
with thin sapwood, mny remain merchantable for fifteen or twenty yenrs.
Logging fire-killed limber involves
losses ill mnny ways, particularly in
bringing useless parts of the tree to
the mill, nnd in tlie danger of breaking
when the trees are being felled. There
nre difficulties in milling, in that the
sol'l punky inilside layer of decayed
logs lake up gravel wliieh is had for
Ibe saw.
The average results of tests of small
specimens free from defects indicate
that the wood of fire-killed Douglas
lir, after a considerable number of
yenrs, is slightly weaker than tbat cut
from green timber. The difference,
however, is not great, and in structural sizes containing the defects ordinarily found in timber, very largely
disappears. In tests which have been
conducted bridge stringers of fire-
killed wook proved to be somewhat
less strong thnn the green stringers
witli whicli they were compared; while
the floor joists (of both kinds of
wood) were about equal in strength.
In stiffness, tlie lire-killed wood was
fully equal to the green wood for all
sizes tested.
In general, tests indicate that tlie
sound wood from lire-killed Douglas
lir of the Pacilic Coast may safely be
used for general construction purposes nnd Hint its merits are nearly if
not quite equal to those of material
from green, growing trees. Il should
be emphasized, however, that these
results apply only to sound wood.
Pieces showing indications of decay,
whether cut from green or from dead
trees, should be rigidly excluded
where strength or durability is important.

OL'ITE a (lurry of interest has
heen stirred among Butte mining men recently by the big copper
nnd silver lend development at Hazelton, British Columbia, and several
mining operators have mnde Butte
their headquarters in the interest of
their district during the past two
months. A most comprehensive outline of development was given out by
one of their number here recently.
"We can come to Butte and feel
the welcome that goes hand in hand
with having made good," said James
A. Riley, one of the Northern men
at the Pinlen hotel. "We enn thank
Butle nnd Spokane cnpital for having opened up our mines, for it was
P. J. Jennings, of Spokane, who lirst
brought John F. Cowan and associates of Butte and Salt Lake City to
look at the Rocher de Boule copper
property, and Put Welch, Jack Stewart, Vernor Smith and Tony McHitgli,
the wealthy Spokane railroad contractors, came to us with ready assistance to open the Silver Standard,
the Silver Cup and the Sunrise silver-
lend properties.
"Hazelton is the centre of a vast
mineralized area which has barely
heen scratched. Everything that bus
been opened up so far has been within a radius of from two to ten miles
of the new transcontinental railway,
whicli will have seen the driving of
the lnst. spike on the fnrthese north

YOU
By Ii. W. Montgomery
ONLY n long, low-lying lane
Thnt follows to tlie misty sen.
Across a bare and russet, plain
Where wild winds whistle vagrantly.
I know that mnny a fairer path
Willi lure of song nnd bloom may
woo,
But, oh, I love this lonely strath
Because il. is so full of Y'OU!
Here we have walked in older years,
And here your truest memories wait
THIS spot is sacred to your tears,
THAT lo your laughter dedicate.
Here by this turn you gnve to me
A gem of thought Hint glitters yet,
This tawny slope is graciously
The mystery of a tale untold,
The grace of an uniilterod prayer.
Lei others choose the fairer path
That   winds   the   dimpling   valley
through,
I gladly seek this lonely strath
Companioned by my dreams of yon.
By a remembered smile besot.
Here once ynu lingered on an hour
When stars were shinning in the
west,
To gather one pnle scented flower
And place it smiling on your breast;
And since Hint eve ils fragrance blows
For me ncross lhe grasses sere,
Fur sweeter than the latest rose,
That faded bloom of yesl eryenr.
For me the sky, the sea, the world,
Have  beckoning visions  wild  nnd
fair,
The mystery of a tale untold,
The grace of an iinuttered prayer.
Let others choose the fairer path
That  winds   the   dimpling  vnlley
through,
1 gladly seek this lonely strath
Companioned by my dreams of you.

DAV1D Belasco has been called
"lucky." This is by the envious rivals whose ratio of successes is
fnr below thnt of the man whose delightful production of "The Concert," with Leo Ditrichstein in the
lending role, will have its first performance at tlie Victoria Theatre on
Thursday, April 3rd.
It will not bc denied that the plays
nnd productions of David Belasco are
more nearly "sure-fire" hits than
those of any manager now catering
to the American public. It is not
within tlie records of the past dozen
yenrs Hint he hns hnd more than two
"out and out" failures; while one has
only to recall such triumphant works
as "Zaza," "Du Barry," "The
Music Master," "The Girl of the
Golden West," "Sweet Kitty Bel-
lairs," "The Rose of the Rancho,"
"Is Matrimony a Failure1." "The
Lily," "Nobody's Widow," "The
Woman," "The Return of Peter
Grimm," and "The Governor's
Lady"—all successes, some of them
epoch-making triumphs—to place beyond argument his claim us the greatest, author-manager tbe American
singe bus ever known nnd one of the
greatest iu dramatic history. It is
because of this remarkable record,
nml because of the perfect enst nnd
scenic production his plnys always
receive, Ihul the public huve learned
to expect; so much more of him than
nf any other author that the first
night; of any new Bolnsco piny is
awaited with an interest that attaches to no other "openings."
ONE of the dramatic treats of the
seuson will bo Ivan Wright's
presentation of Francis Wilson's fn-
moiis comedy "The Bachelor's Baby"
which will be presented at the Victoria Theatre on Wednesday, April 2.
"The Bachelor's Baby" is a comedy of action, as apart from a comedy of dialogue or scene, and there
is not a dull moment in the play, nnd
so grotesquely amusing are the incidents i.i it tliat the audience is in one
huge roar of laughter from the rise
of the first curtain to the fall of the
last. And while the play amuses it
never fails to appeal to the hearts of
the audience. Tlie picture of the hardened young bachelor, who is a sworn
enemy of babies, and all things connected with babies, being won over
by his little orphan niece, is an exceedingly pretty one, and these are
many wet eyes in the audience during the scene where Tommie has to
part with the kiddie ho began by
fearing, and has ended by adoring.
All this is written with supreme delicacy and feeling, and it is indeed
touching to see how a little child's

OLD GIRLS
BY BOHEMIAN
1_m__-^___\t
WE hear lots about "old boys,"
but who ever hears anything
aboul "old girls" now-a-days? As a
matter of fact, 1 don't believe that
tliere are any; lhey wont out with
ringlets and bonnets, and now thai
every woman wears a "lint," even to
the day of her death, Ihore is but
one classification and that is determined by the milliner.
Alt the same, if it were not a digression, I could loll of three or four
old-world ladies, even in Victoria, who
still cling to tlie little old-fashioned
bonnet, which frames tlieir sweet old
faces, anel to Ihe black sill; dress so
reminiscent of an almost forgotten
past. They aro sweet and wholesome
and dainty, but then they are women
—and not girls.
Tlie older a clever woman grows,
the younger she looks; just as the
more sho knows, tlie more innocent
she seems. There are girls of seventeen, who manage to look older thnn
their mothers* but. Ihen Hint is because they know so much more. A
recent writer on the subject snys
that the young girls of today suffer
from ignorance, inexperience nnd
cheap corsets, nnd be is firmly convinced that whalebone is Ihe secret
of eternal youth.
This phase of Hie subject will have
a special interest for Victorians, for
the Cnpital City is the home of the
whale industry and it is profoundly
interesting to think of that cumbrous
mammal voyaging through strange
sens in search of food in order to
prolong the existence of beauty lines
in our girls. It must be n joy to
them to know, if they ever reflect,
that they serve a high purpose and
Hint they give not only light but
beauty to Hie world.
According to Hint eminent eugenist,
Dr. Snlecby, youth is n stnte of tbe
soul and as long us a woman enn per-
sunde herself Hint her lines of beauty
nre not becoming too rotund, in
short, thnt she is not being "hipped"
she can preserve tier youth.
But mnny a woman, ns she nenrs
the dangerous nge. dreads Hie moment
when her true love will perceive that
she is losing the line of beauty. This
is thc fate of all women, but thanks
to the noble whale, the slim lino of
youth can be preserved long after the
Clock of Time has struck tlie hour
of middle-age. l'erhaps the whales
knew it; perhaps that it what they
spout about in the Arctic Seas.
We hear a good deal now-n-dnys
aboul the influence of mind over mnl-
ter. Indeed, this theory forms the
basis of some influential modern
cults. But so far as n pretty woman
is concerned, it is matter Ihat she
minds and not mind thnt matters. If
she can keep her too solid flesh in
subjection, she is willing to go out of
her mind.
Hays she "Whnt is the good of
having a young heart, if you have an
old outline?" II is the silhouette,
nol tlie soul Hint is the oue thing
needful. To bc. or nol to be, is not
the question Ihal tortures Ihe fading
beauty; to bulge, or not lo bulge, is
the question Unit Paquin and Worth
answer every day. It was for fleshly
victories over the aggressive outline
Unit Mde. l'nquin was awarded the
Legion of Honour hy the Republic of
France.
It is strange that no poet has ever
snag the heroism of this everlasting
light of middle-aged womanhood
against increasing adiposity. Not
even Laocoon and his sons suffered
wlial lovely women suffer. Tlieir torment wus brief. The serpents that
squeezed them to death in tlieir complicated coils were far more merciful,
because swifter, than llle serpents of
fashion wdio constrict tlieir victims
in lhe fashionable confections of
Bond Street and Hie Rue dc la Paix.
It is u theme for nil epic. Is tliere
no Dnnte fit to describe the Nine Circles of the Inferno of Fashion?
After all, Lucifer wns fnirly comfortable in Pandemonium compared
with the old girl who toils day and
night to remain us slimly curvilinear
as of yore and whoso motto is "Waist
not, wnnt not." Time writes no
wrinkles on her niussnged brow. She
is the lnst of the martyrs, She dyes
in the last ditch. Her whole life is
one long Lent. "Moriturne illnm
sublimit."
The Society for Psychical Research
Written Specially for The Week i_> J. Arthur Hill, Member of Ihe English Society of'
Authors.    Collaborated wilh Sir Oilier Lodge
IN previous articles on psychical
mat ters, I have referred to the
work of oar Society, Ind for lhe most
part, restricting myself lo Ihe description of its results. It occurs to
me, however, Hint some account of it:i
genesis, history and methods, may be
of interest.
lu 1S7I1, Professor (now Sir William) Barrett, having had some curious experiences of Hie kind, wrote a
letter lo The London Times, uskiiui
for reports from any other observers
who hud liad good results iu what was
known ns "tlie willing gnme." This
parlour pastime, which revives and
has n run of fashion every few yenrs,
tukes vnrious forms. In one of the
commonest, u person goes out of thc
room while the others decide on some
liclion which lhe absent one is to he
"willed" to perform, When they
hnve arranged Ihal he is—say—to be
willed lo tarn off all electric light ill
a certain switch, he is brought back
into the room, one nf the company
holds his hand or wrist, and all of
them concent rale their minds on the
. nction to lie performed. The experiment often succeeds; lint probably
the success is due lo involuntary indications being given by the direction
of the company's  looks or hy  the
pressure
of    the    blind.    Curiously.
however, it sometimes succeeds when
Hie person "willed" is nol touched,
nnd is moreover blindfolded. In such
a ease there seems some probability
of genuine thought-transference, or
"lelepalhy," ns il is culled.
Professor Barrett hud a large number of replies to ills letler, and mnny
of these eases he personally investigated, travelling nbout (he country in
vacations. One of lhe most interesting of I hem was concerned wilh I lie
children of thc late Rev. A. Al.
Creery, a respected clergymen in
Buxton, Derbyshire. Stringent precautions were tnken lo avoid any information being conveyed lo lho subject through the ordinary channels of
sense. For example, one of llle percipients, Maud, then a child of
twelve years old, was taken to an
empty adjoining room, and boll, doors
closed. Professor Burrell then wrote
down lhe name of some object likely
lo he in llic house (hair-brush, wine-
glas, orange, apple, knife, tumbler,
smoothing-iron, cup) nnd those present Ihen concentrated their minds on
the thing specified, "willing" Maud
lo fetch and tiring il. No one was
allowed lo leave Ibe room or lo speak
a word. All lho jast-nioiilioncd articles were correctly brought. Saucer
wus a failure; nlso tonsting-l'ork Urol
lime, lint right al lhe second attempt,
The successes of course arc mnlhe-
mnticnlly provable lo lie loo many for
lhe attribution of chance,
This wns in 1881. Oilier confirmatory incidents occurred, nnd, a uew
and promising* field of scientific inquiry being thus opened up. Professor
Barrett consulted several friends—
scientists like G. T. Romanes and
Fellows of Trinity like F. W. H. Myers nnd Edmund Gurney—with a
view to the forinntion of a society
for ihe investigation of those phenomena. In 1S82 the Society for Psychical Research came into being, with
Henry Sidgwiek, the famous Professor of Moral Philosophy at Cambridge, as ils lirst president. The now
Society was specially fortunate in
securing Sidgwiek for ils loader. He
was a man of extremely calm nnd
caul ions judgment. Professor James
once referred to him ns "the most
oxasperatingly critical mind in England," nud lhe description is very
apl. The resull of his guidance wns
thut the S. V. li. adopted a very high
stnndnrd of evidence, und nothing
was printed without having undergone the mosl drastic criticism.
Lulor Presidents include the Into
Prime Minister, (Mr. A. .1. Balfour),
nnd his brother, Mr. (I. W. Balfour,
Sir Oliver Lodge, Sir William
Crookes (the eminent chemist, discoverer of thallium nnd inventor of
the "Crookes' tube" which mnde
possible the discovery of x-rays), Sir
William Barrett, Dr. Boyd Carpenter
(late Bishop of the important See of
Ripon), Mr. Andrew Lang, nnd several other world-renowned names.
The list of members, 1,200 in number, includes almost all the notable
scientific leaders now living, and in
point of prestige, the Society is prob-
nhly lhe strongest in existence with
the one exception of the Reiynl Society itself.
The S. P, R.'s publications include
twenty-five volumes of Proceedings
and fifteen volumes of the Journal.
They contain exhaustive reports of
the niediiinisliip of Mrs. Piper, Mrs.
Thompson, JIrs. Verrall, Mr. Stain-
ton Moses, aud other who have shown
these peculiar faculties; also many
accounts of spontaneous nppnritions
seen by normal, sane nnd healthy
people al or about the time of the
appearing person's death; nlso ac-
caunts of hypnotic phenomena, nnd
reviews of nil important books published ini these subjects. For the general render who tins not time to wnde
through ihis somewhat formidable array of volumes, the siiiinnnry given
hy the Inte F. W. II. Myers in his
"Human Personality and Its Survival of Bodily Death," will furnish
nn admirable idea of tlie Society's
work; while ns for the progress made
since Myers' lamented decease, the
present writer bus attempted n resume of it in his "New Evidences iu
Psychicnl Research."
In the mntter of opinion, tlie Society leaves its members quite free.
As a society, it has no convictions,
except the belief that the subject is
worthy of investigation. Consequently
there is the greatest diversity of opinion among its members. The present
president is n retired Bishop of the
Anglican Church; one of the honorary secretaries—the Hon. Evernrd
Fielding, brother of the Earl of Deu-
ligh—is a Roman Catholic; many
are gonial agnostics of the non-com-
balive nud reverent lype; nnd one
well-known member is n Buddhist.
Some believe iu survivnl; some don't,
nnd don't wnnt to. One member of
Ihe council—Dr. Milne Brnmwell, a
famous West End medical man—declines to believe even in telepathy;
though lie has seen and done much
more wonderful things iu the wny of
producing hypnotic sleep sufficiently
deep for painful operations to be performed without anything being felt.
II is mostly n matter of personal experience. Whnt we huve seen for ourselves, we can accept; whnt others
have soon, or say lhey have seen, we
distrust. And if is right and well
Ihal il should bo so. A wise conservatism safeguards us against believing loo much nnd loo onsily. The
important filing is investigation—
careful, patient, unbiassed investigation, If is for Ihis, lirst and lnsl and
entirely and only, thai the Society
for Psychical Research exists, ll is
nol au association of superstitious
cranks, tail a truly scientific society
which is socking lo extend exuel
knowledge iuto Holds hitherto left loo
much to flic faddists and the over-
credulous. It welcomes any criticism
which will enable il to improve its
met hods, and it welcomes uuy ue-
counts of psychical experiences—
which must, however, bo recent nnd
well authenticated if they arc In
earry evidential weight—whether
lhe aarralor is a spiritualist, or agnostic, or Clirislinn, or Confucian, or
whether lho incidents point to nny
definite theory or nol. The Society
bus n grent future in front of it. 11
is doing pioneer work which will lead
lo rich seienlilie results iu the coming lime. It is preparing lhe way for
a new philosophy nnd for new nnd
bettor conceptions of religion.
MANY columns hnve been written
on the value of cleanliness, but
a grent mnny owners fail to see the
value of keeping I lie machinery of
their cars in this desirable state,"
says S. P. Moody, of the Cadillac
Garage. "Most owners take pride
iu keeping Iho ear body washed and
the brass polished, but too many of
them neglect parts beneath the hood
and floor boards. The owner is often
called upon to make some adjustment
to carburetor or magneto where the
inoloi is so encrusted wilh grease and
.uud as lo require a jumper or elbow
gloves In accomplish tlie work without ruining a sail of clothes und making il nocessury to spend live or len
minutes washing up.
"When kepi properly clcauod any
small addilionnl ndjustmenl eun be
made without the necessity of dressing up liko a machinist or looking like
a conl heaver when the work is completed. Remember, a few well-ilireclcd
efforts daily wilt keep your motor
looking spi.k and span and you will
be amply repaid by Ihe heller appearance and longer service.
"The railroad companies of the
country spend thousands of dollars
annually grooming the machinery of
(lie locomotive after oacli run, and
lhey are just as particular with the
freight engines ns tbey nre with the
grout machines thai haul lhe limited
trains between the lnrgest cities. It
is uol n mallei* of looks wilh ihem,
hal of obtaining lho greatest amount
ef service from each locomotive, representing n curtain investment. We
would do well lo follow Iheir example,   ll pnys."
The Young Year
By Walt Mason, the Poet Philosopher.
THU young year is humping along;
ho's active and joyous nnd
strong; he hasn't a voice or he'd
loudly rejoice with laughter and jubilant song. If he had a voice he would
sing: "All kinds of fair chances I
bring; fair chances to rise from the
mud to the skies, so seize thein before
they take wing." And all that the
happieEt year can give while it's jour
neying hero is the chance to improve
to get out of your groove, and
make for yourself a career.  The nev
year inspires men to try, to let thei:
old weaknesses die; to get a new star
with a brave, buoyant heart, and
light of resolve in the eye. And that'
why the new year is blest; it stirs u
new hopes in each breast as we wate
it cavort with  a rippety-snort,  th
bright, cheerful annual guest.    Th
new year is loping away, but gives t
our chances today, so let us begin
achieve and to win before it is ai
cient and gray.  Let's all get to woi
with a vim, and put up a rollickii
hymn, and wrestle and toil with
dod-gasted soil, ere the new year
weary of limb.
If lhey nre loo copious a woman
tears will extinguish tlio llnmo of
mini's love.
"Chic" is a lh ing a man ndmir
in Frenchwomen, actresses, and oth
men's wives. He likes to go out wi
il bill hates In come home to it.

NEXT Monday, tlie 31st, at seven p.m. in the Ballroom of tlio
Empress Hotel, tlio members of tho Victoria Automobile
Association and their guests will sit down to the annual
dinner and business mooting, whicli, by its signal success, has become
an event in local society and motoring circles. The occasion had been
ilnnned to tako placo earlier; but finding that the date selected
would clash with a number of other engagements of members, the
executive with ready good-will postponed it until Monday.
The work of the past year, under the able leadership of President
A. E. Todd hns been of great scope, will be reviewed by the various
jfficers and eominitte chairman. Toasts will be responded to,
healths will doubtless be pledged as according to precedent, and if
inst performance bo an indication of the future, the banquet itself
,vill be the host yet. The Association is much larger than at this time

Tt will be agreed by all those familiar with this city that the
irospective executive is splendidly selected. Most of the men whose
limes appear on this list are familiar not only to the motoring public
nit to fhe rest of us, as possessing ability and energy, while some who
ire not yet so well-known have shown unmistakable signs of belong'
ng to that class that is never content in letting well-enough alone.
During the evening the guests may expect to hear some refer-
■iice to the work of the past, year, which has been n very fruitful one.
ft will lie remembered that the executive and other members mad,; a
■nil last summer on Hon. Thomas Taylor, Minister of Public AVorks.
villi a carefully drawii-np plan of suggestion in regard to good rniul.
ivhich tbey outlined to him, It is gratifying to note that the kindly
■eception of these notes has been followed up by embodiment of ninny
f (hem iu work already carried out by the "Good-Roads" genius, who
s great in many things, among these being a willingness to benefit
iv thoughtful suggestions. A number of club runs were undertaken,
lie most important of whicii was the one, in conjunction with delegates from other Northwestern Auto Clubs, to the Pacific Highw.iv
Convention in San Francisco last August. The ceremonies of pinning the first post of Canadian Highway at Alberni, May 4th, were
argely attended, 110 cars being present.   Highway authorities from
many parts of the continent wero on hand and all felt that they were
taking part in real history. The arrival of Pathfinder Thomas
Wilby from the Atlantic shore of Canada, his drive into tbe Pacific
at Alberni, and the delightful banquet which followed at the Empress, will not soon bo forgotten. There were also beld several club
runs to pleasant Island scenes, climaxed by well-arranged luncheons,
whicli proved a big feature of the year's work, as did the luncheons
at the Balmoral whicli in several instances took the place of the usual
monthly meetings at night. Tho year has been so full of good things,
so productive of large results for the Arictoria Automobile Association, that several pages would be necessary for a really detailed
account of things accomplisbed.
Best of all the organization has been growing, and growing
rapidly. That the next year will see equal development, and that the
coming executive will prove as able and generous ns have thos» retiring, is tlie wish of The AVeek.
T) stop automobile speeding
through the city of Chilliwack,
B.C., the city council has put into
effect a device ns novel as it is effective. This consists of a system of raised concrete street crossings, constructed  sufficiently high  nbove  the
roadbed to give the accupants of a
low-wheeled, fust-driven automobile a
severe shock. Tiie approach to them
is sueh tbat a horse-driven vehicle
enn cross at a moderate speed without
discomfort to passengers.

FROM PARIS
MONOTONES in   millinery    are
ultra-fashionable, just because
■popular  priced   merchandise will be
lexploited   in   all the brilliant lines
Ininv in vogue.   Certain milliners who
Ishowed in their spring openings hats
■trimmed with bright colored plumes
■such as cerise and rose shades, will
■not  work on others, nnd  while  the
lllornl    decorations   used in lhe high
class  models  embrace  many  of  the
■Bulgarian colors, there is a tendency
|to Couture the more subdued tones.
*
While  the  keynote   of    millinery
[might lie snid to be simplicity,, yet if
lime comes to analyze the lines, huts
|nre really most difficult to describe.
A number of  beautiful   artificial
|llowors nre combined iu the trimmings
-roses in pink and red arc pnrticu-
Ihirl.v prominent.
'In Paris wo are using the quaint
lold-fasbioned cretonnes for facing
Bulls, for milking fascinating little
feoatees woru with lingerie frocks, for
trimming gowns, coats and blouses,
ll'he effect is charming nnd very different. The designs suggest Pompa-
llour and .Tony effects," says a letter
|usl received.
A number of Hie small hats are
liilaptiitions from Poiret. These aro
lleveloped ill the Bulgarian und Jouy
prepes and trimmed with clusters of
Iroses or fruits at intervals about the
brim, nnd arc particularly attractive
Ifor wear with lingerie dresses for
puidsummer.
One of the most chnrmnig models
Ifrom Jeanne Lnnvin is shown in a

The various art movements nt the

Styles aro chiefly Grecian. Pompa-

harassed minds and better health
than fall today to the lot of the
average women of today.
There is a word of truth here, and
though we may not be prepared to advocate the cult of the unsmiling face,
or of the ever-silent tongue, yet, as
everybody knows, there is no one
quite so wearing both to herself and
her unfortunate listeners us the tireless talker, the everlasting grinner,
thc grimacing, prattling , deadly
cheerful person who hns solved the
problem of perpetual sound nud motion.
Unquestionably mnny such women
talk und laugh themselves into serious nervous disorders, it not into be-
wrinkled old ngo, but ut the bottom of
lids is tbo snme fact, which proves
itself daily to the seeing eye, viz, that
fhe quiet, thoughtful womnn not only
wears better, but ronlly retains youth-
fulness of mind, manner and appenr-
nnce longer than does her unthinking
chattering sister.
Thus it seems that we should nil be-
wnre the smile thnt won't come off,
the brook-like, going-on-forever small
talk, and too much polite grimacing,
if we would uvoid furrows, wrinkles,
crows' feet, nnd other brutal exposures of the youth so sadly flown.
WESTMINSTER-VICTORIA
TRAFFIC
PERHAPS you thought the parasols
shown lnst year were eccentric.
Then I wonder wdint you will think
of those displayed now. Such combinations of color, such decoration,
such shapes! The plain round sunshade has quietly closed and gone to
nn obscure cornor of the closet nnd
hns left, the field to its more ornate
sister. Instend of the uniformly
bowed ribs of yesteryenr we find these
slender rods of steel distorted into
nil sorts of queer shapes. The parasol
mny be tint on top nnd the ribs curve
down sharply at the ends. The silk
is stretched across the flat top, is
carved between the ends of the ribs
and is shirred over the curved ends
of Hie ribs.
Agnin the parasol is mude iu two
tiers each separate from tlie other
nnd connected only by the ferrule.
Velvet, cloth of silver, cloth of gold
lined with filmy chiffons, nre among
tlle loveliest of the new creations.
Even drapery lias' ventured into the
realm of lhe sunshade and appears in
novel forms. The thinnest of crepe
de chine or chiffon is looped up over
a foundation of colored satin, the thin
stuff bunging in festoons at the ends
of Ihe ribs.
The Japanese parasol is seen, too,
developed in silks, however. From
the parasol which mudume carries
along the beach at the Riviera one's
gaze wanders downward to the lint underneath. But if the parasol be
bizarre lhe lint more than compensates in beauty.
Tulle is being used extensively. Often Hie hnt of fine straw hns a small
round crown and over this is an enormous fluff of n supercrown composed
of-the tulle. The small closely fitting
turbans nre often treated in this manner nnd the effect is indescribably
light and niry.
Then there nre hats made entirely
of tulle. Layers upon layers of the
filmy material form the gracefully
dropping brim. The prettiest of these
lints nre mnde with the lower layers
of flesh colored or pnle blue tulle while
the upper throe or four Inyers are of
blnck tulle.
The crown is n soft puff of .the blnck
lined with the color. The trimming S,
of Hie simplest, just a Iwisl of pieot
edged ribbon, or a delicately tinted
posy.
SCIENTISTS arc now agitating the
question whether, for the sake of
tier own health nnd beauty, Hie modern woman does not talk and laugh
too much. The I henry is ndvnnccd
Hint old nge nnd wrinkles come much

IMPROVED facilities for n more in-
limnte interchange of business between the Fraser Valley and Victoria
is an important matter which is receiving considerable attention by the
business communities of both New
Westminster and the Cnpital City. On
the one hand the more ready accessibility of the Fraser Valley products
for Victoria consumption; and on the
other hand the better facilities for
marketing in New Westminster and
the Fraser Valley of Victorin manufactured goods and English supplies
through the Victoria jobbers, are the
demands responsible for tlie movement, and which it is anticipated will
result in the establishment of a
freight and passenger steamer of considerable tonnage whicli will make the
trip semi-weekly to start wdth and
whicli will later be increased to a
daily service when the traffic war-
rnnts it.

object of the exhibition is to interest
lhe public in the new school nnd for
Hint purpose n number of objects of

A  Weekly Review of the Most Important Happenings in the Mining World,  With Special Reference to New Discoveries and Developments.
Edited by W. Blakemore, M. I. M. E. Greenwetl Medallist.
THE fifteenth annual meeting of the Canadian Mining
Institute wns held in Ottawa during the first week of .Mnrch.
The comment of The Canadian Mining Journal is that "in
all essentials, in good fellowship, in professional gain, in academic
disquisition and in social import the fifteenth annual meeting of the
Canadian Mining Institute will go down in history as one of the most
remarkable in the Society's annals."
The history of the Institute is highly gratifying to those who
were instrumental in bringing about its establishment some fifteen
year ago. Prior to that time tliere was the Mining Association in
Nova Scotia and in Quebec, but it was not until a movement for
federating these and bringing in Ontario members who were interested in mining that the industry was first properly represented by
a co-ordinated body. It is not out of place to remind our readers
that the prime mover in this federation was the late Mr. B. T. A.
Hell, of Ottawa. With him wcre allied a number of the oldest mining
men in Canada; some of thein have since passed away; most of them
still remain, and have the satisfaction nf seeing their anticipations
fulfilled for a prosperous future for the industry and a distinguished
career for the Mining Institute. Without consulting tbe records it
may bo said with tolerable accuracy that at the date of the Federation
there were approximately two hundred members. The returns for
1913 show 1052.
The annual meeting was distinguished by the presence of
II. E. II. the Duke of Connaught, wdio formally opened the proceedings. Mr. R. L. Borden and Sir Wilfrid Laurier were also
among the distinguished guests and contributed important addresses.
Among the most interesting papers read was one by Dr. A. P. Coleman on "The Sudbury Ore Deposits"; by Prof. Haultain on "The
Geologist," and a third by Prof. James Douglas. Dr. A. E. Barlow
was elected President, a position which he has well earned not only
by his distinguished services to the Geological Department of the
Dominion, but by his devotion to the interests of tho Canadian Mining Institute ever since its formation. He delivered an original and
exhaustive address on the national importance of mining; he pointed
out that cities, towns and even villages often have tlieir location
determined by the presence of some mineral of economic importance;
that great centres of industrial activity are directly dependent for
their growth on an adequate supply of the raw minerals, or mineral
products. Tbe extension of the British Empire has been due in no
small measure to the mineral resources of Great Britain. The same
is true of the mineral resources of the United States. Mining ranks
second in importance among the industries, agriculture naturallv
coming first. Dr. Barlow went on to show what an enormous contributor tbe mine is to railway freight. In Canada in 190S nf th°
total freight hauled by railroads tho products of the mine acconnte'l
for 35.92 per cent; while forestry ranked second in importance with
20.49, and agriculture third, with 14.91.
These few figures show what an important feature mininff is in
the industrial life of a nation and are of especial significanc0 for
British Columbia because of the unbounded mineral resources which
we possess and which have hardly begun to be developed. Tt "'ill li"
interesting to examine Dr. Barlow's address at greater lenath in a
subsequent issue.

THF, Hedley Gold Mining Company hns opened I lie dividend
campaign for 1013 auspiciously. Thc
first dividend of the year has been
declared nnd it provides foi* tbe distribution of $1111,0110, being Uie regular
quarterly three per cent and thc additional two per cent bonus on Ibe issued capital stock. This brings lhe
total sum the compuny bas paid in
dividends since they look over the
property in August, 190!), up to $921,-
000 which is getting very close to the
million mark.
Neither is there nny evidence Hint
the surplus of $200,901 .34 wliieh wns
on hand at the beginning of the year
•has been reduced a single cent but
the great probability Hint it has been
materially added lo ns Ibe result of
the quarter's operations.
Thc present yenr bids fair to be
one nf exceptional development and
exceptional improvement. Not only
will development in the mine bc pushed ns rapidly ns lhe available power
will permit*, but. it. is likely to witness
the initiation of a comprehensive
power scheme lo develop lhe necessary power for lhe mosl profitable
winning of values from the ever-increasing ore reserves of tbe mine.
Official announcement   is   ns follows :—
Hedley Gold Mining Company, 42
Broadway, New York, March 12,
1913.
A quarterly dividend nf three pur
cent and an additional dividend of
two per cent has this dny been declared on Ihe outstanding cnpital

Hedley Gold Mining Company,
John II. Clarke, Secretary.
CHARLES Dempster, lho well
known mining promotor, returned a few days since from New York,
after an absence of several months,
snys a Rossland report. During tbe
lnst six months, he said, he had been
endeavoring to induce his principals
in the East to take up mining in the
Rossland cnmp, nnd finally lie hnd
succeeded. His principals are Ibosc
who made up the syndicate Ibnl control the Fife mines.
Mr. Dempster made Ibe announcement that he will havc a mining property in operation in Ihe Rosslnnd
cnmp by April Isl, but withheld the
name of tbe properly for thc present.
Tbe intention is lo fully prove the
properly, und when Ihis is done it will
lie operated on n large and comprehensive scnle.
The Fife mines will remain idle
until Ibe capita! of Ibe conipuny operating them enn be considerably enlarged.
SPLENDID progress is being made
in driving Ibe big bore under
Glacier Creek, Portland Canal, to lap
the vein series of Hint section at
depth. By the end of the week lhe
7x~-l'oot tunnel hnd reached n dis-
Inucc nt' 080 feel in ils course of
2,000 feel. The einployiiicnl of tllis
method of mining iu districts where
the properties nre good nnd the difficulties of lopoernphicnl  formation
ninny, is uol u uew one. lt is more
Hum fifty years since the construction of the great Sulro tunnel proved, iu lhe face of nil criticism, Bint
such an unilei'lnking was not only per-
foctly feasible from nn engineering
point of view, but wns a pronounced
commercial success. Hut it is n most
satisfactory Ibing lo know, ou the
testimony of engineers and milling
men of intenintionnl prominence,
Hint, of all the similar undertakings
which hnve been carried through in
other camps ou this continent, no
single one lias tailed to justify its
construction, Given the one essential of a sufficiency of ore of n reasonably profitable grade in the properties served by the tunnel, nnd the
superior advantages of sloping the
ore nnd bringing it down through a
tunnel to (he railway shipping point,
ever the alternative of hoisting it up
a shaft lo the surface nnd thence conveying it by cosily aerial tram-lines
or mude roads to the same railway
shipping point, made itself quickly
apparent in lhe diminished cost of
operations in the properties affected
nnd the increased profits earned.
GROWTH of travel between Stew-
nrt und Granby Bny now assumes considerable proportions, and
the fuel that there is no direct means
of communication between the two
points, hns influenced Richard Chapman, one of lhe owners of the power
bont Independence, to establish a
weekly service. Every Monday Ihis
craft will leave Stewart for the
neighboring mining camp.
AS a result of a referendum vote
tnken by the miners nnd other
employees of the Crow's Nest Pnss
Coal company on the subject of medical attendance it was decided by n
majority of .175 votes not to give notice to Drs. Bonnell & Corsan that
their services would not be required
from three months after April 1, as
was suggested nt the mass meeting
held lnst Sunday in the Grand thentre. The ballots contained (he question: "Are you in favor of giviug
notice to terminate the contract with
Drs. Bonnell nnd Corsan?"
Out of a total of 1142 votes cast,
479 were in favor of giving such notice nnd 054 were against such ne-
tion.   Nine ballots wcr spoiled.
JE. OWENS, who has loented a
• claim in the new diggings in the
Teslin Lake District reported by
Skookum Jim, was at Atlin lnst, Snturdny, according to a messnge received from there, with several thousand dollars worth of washed gold,
the first brought out from the soeno
of the new strike. He said that all
the claims on his creek are slaked,
hut refused to give the location of
his claim.
ROBERT Henderson, bf Cottell-
ville, has returned from an extended trip lo Scotland nnd the
United Stales. His object was lo enlist cnpital in his aluminum nnd
gypsum properties. The gypsum
property nt Cranford hns been lensed
foi* Iwo yenrs, nnd Mi. Henderson expects to do active development this
summer, Al present he is engaged on
bis gypsum cluiins near Merritt nnd
is already down thirty feel in a shift
nml expects lo go sixty. Dr. Coy of
Vancouver owns three of lhe five;
Mr. Henderson owning the others.
Mr. Henderson hns great  faith in
his aluminum cluiins up l'clil Creek,
and it was mainly to put forth Iheir
merits that he took lhe trip lo Europe. While there he saw the manager of the British Aluminum Company, Lid., iu London, Hug.
REPORTS from the Mount Ida
group indicate thai the claims
are going lo make good. Work is
progressing very satisfactorily, nl-
Ihough delayed somewhat by lack of
powder, a supply of which is on the
road,
It is stated Ihat lhe rock ull across
lhe fnce of the tunnel is now showing
good signs of mineral and samples
brought down nre supposed to be ns
rich, if not more so, thnn some which
wns struck in the early days and
which, on assay were shown lo run
$212 in silver and $10.00 in guhl, nil
Ihat they were assayed for.
CANADIAN railways generally
mny adopt the system of using
crude oil for the generation of their
locomotive power in plnce of coal.
Clyde Levilt. chief lire inspector for
the Railway Commission and forester
for the Commission of Conservation,
is now preparing n statement showing how the installation of this system may prove more advantageous
to railways from a financial point of
view. The Cnnndinu Pacilic Railway
is now using oil burning engines on
its main line between Kamloops and
Field, B.C. The Grand Trunk Pacific and some of the Pacific Const
teamsbips companies nlso burn oil,
while the new system is now in use
ou many of thc railroads in the
United States. The economy particularly in intermittent service, ami
the fuel that three boilers heated by
oil will give the same amount of
steam as the same number heated hy
coal, nil tend to mnke this new system popular. The all is obtained
from thc oil fields of California, and
if further discoveries iu Alberta aud
British Columbia make this oil more
plentiful ils use will be largely ex-
1 ended on the railways. The use of
this new fuel would greatly lessen
the necessity for forest protection
from Hying sparks and cinders; it
would u|so greatly decrease the loss
experienced annually by the country
from Ibis cause.

Let the Great North Pacific flake
Profits For You
Here is an opportunity the like of which may not come to you again in a lifetime. Prince Rupert, known the world over as the Pacific terminus of the great Grand
Trunk Transcontinental, the town that made as high as 600 per cent, profits for those who bought lots at its early niles, has to have a great industrial annex. There isn't a
single industrial waterfront site to be bought or leased at Prince Rupert now, and tlie great development now at hand with the completion of the G.T.P, and the opening of
the Panama Canal, will demand a host of them. Port Edward fills the bill. Prince Rupert ABSOLUTELY NEEDS Port Edward. Many prominent Prince Rupert
business men and several of the most prominent Canadian men of affairs are behind the project, which is capitalized at $1,000,000, all subscribed.'

n
o   o
Is too big an enterprise to be described here. Write for detail literature. Get the facts NOW while you have time to buy at the starting prices. Values will advance
at Port Edward as rapidly as they did at Prince Rupert. Port Edward's future is assured. The great Prince Rupert Hydro-Electric Company, whicii controls the
power and lighting of Prince Rupert and Port Edward, has selected the latter place for its big plant and is installing now. Other big Canadian industries are negotiating
for sites now. Port Edward has the finest harbor on the Pacific of a natural type. It has seven times the docking capacity of waterfront that Prince Rupert has; it lies on
the mainland, and the main line of the G.T.P. runs straight through it; fifteen'minutes' running time from Prince Rupert. -Port Edward has been laid out by expert
engineers to meet the needs of an industrial annex and it is 100 per cent efficient, with absolutely modern facilities in every regard.   Development work is going on now.
Be alive to this opportunity. Prince Rupert and Port Edward are distributing points for a literal empire, the richest and most varied in all Canada. The G. T. P. and
the Panama Canal, now on the eve of materialization, will throw it open to the world.
Canada has not yet grasped the significance of the development of the great North Pacific, a kingdom any king might well be proud of—a mine of treasure incalculable,
unguessed. The next few years will see it startle the world. People will rush to it in armies. You have this opportunity to anticipate it, if you are broad enough, and to
reap the profits involved.
Port Edward has the backing and the approval of the Grand Trunk Pacific. A contract has been entered into assuring complete service to this new industrial centre,
but even were tliere no contract, the railroad company's attitude would be the same.   There is no room for an adverse opinion about Port Edward.
But don't try to make up your mind one way or another from the few brief facts given here. Clip out the coupon and mial it at once to either of the general sales
agents. This will not obligate y'ou in the slightest'degree, but it will bring to you the whole story of Port Edward and enable you to learn just what this great industrial
centre has to offer YOU.
