C. Electric  track at Marshall's Creek,"close to  Vye Road station, on Thursday morning. At an inquest held later the  verdict given was that the deceased  died from the results of exposure and  excessive drinking. It appears that  about six o'clock a. m. Constable  Thorne was called up by a Swede  named Johnson, a friend of deceased  who said his fellow countryman was  lying on the tracks He said. "He  must have been dead because when  I shook him and asked him to get  up he wouldn't do what I told him"  At the inquest over which Dr. Swift  coroner, presided it turned out that  the two Swedes had been to Sumas  on a drinking bout. Constable  Thorne found Kalber lying face down  wards and on searching him found he  had but twenty five cents in his  pockets. Deceased had worked in  the district at different times.

It is with -deep regret we record  the passing of Mrs. Yates, the beloved wife.of-Rev. C. F. Yates, vicar  of St. Matthews church, Abbotsford,  and who died at Calgary on Thursday April 22, after an-illness of several months. .Several weeks ago the  deceased lady was taken to Calgary  in the hope of recovering from a  illness, and was accompanied by her  husband, her daughter Edith and  Nurse Ryan, Mrs. Yates had been in  Abbotsford for four years and was  dearly loved by all who knew her.  As a churchworker and minister's  help her services were valuable; her  kindly disposition and her anxious  care for the betterment of the community were well known. The deceased lady leaves- a husband, two  dalghters, Miss Edith Yates and Mrs:  Bell, wife, of the manager of the Imperial Bank at Calgary, and one son,  Mr. A .R. Yates, of Gleichen, Alberta  The Rev. Mr. Yates is expected to  arrive home this week end.  THREE TURBANNED TAPPERS  THEMSELVES GET TAPPED  Three Hindus who had been imbibing too -freely got into arguments  which were given extra force by the  use of fists. Constable, Thorne interviewed the darkies and eventually introduced them to Magistrate Kerr  who sent them on their weary way  less two and a half dollars and costs  apiece. The fighting ones hailed  from Chilliwack.  An exceptionally interesting and  able sermon on "The Good Samaritan" was-preached by the Rev. Mr.  Campbell at the I. O. O. F. service  held in the hall here on Sunday,  when some forty brothers were present; In the. gathering wore several  Oddfellows from Mission and Sumas  Noble Grand Master F. J.

The Annual Meeting of the British  Columbia Council of'"the Boy Scouts  Association was held on Monday, April 9th, 1915, at the Provincial Parliament Building (by kind permission). '  His Honor the Lieutenant Governor of British' Columbia and President of the Council took the chair at  .8:30. p. m.  There were also present the Lord  Bishop of Columbia (representing the  Anglican Church), Colonel W. H.  Cunliffe (District Commissioner of  Victoria,, T. H.

A letter regretting his absence.and  wishing the Association every success  was read from Dr. F. F. Westbrook,  President of the University of British Columbia.  The minutes of the last meeting  were read and confirmed.  The Hon. Secretary read his ��������� annual report in which he showed that  our progress though slow and steady  was very sure. More officers and  stronger and more active local executives were our greatest need.  The ^Report was moved, seconded  and adopted and a hearty vote of  thanks tendered.to the Hon. Secretary.  The District Commissioners read  their reports, which were adopted.  Attention of the meeting was called  to a very successful Patrol Leaders  Conference at Vancouver.  The Financial statement was produced.  The report urged that steps be taken "to largely increase the funds of  the Association, which at present con  sist solely of the Government Grant  It pointed out that the organization  of local associations throughout the  province and the proper supervision  and inspection of Troops cannot be  continued without funds to meet the  expenses incurred.  His Honour, suggested that friends  and weil-wlshers of the Association  work should become Associate members, .each paying an annual subscription. The Lord Bishop of Columbia  endorsed His Honour's suggestion,  and pointed out that the Association  cannot always depend upon having  the Honorary Services of Mr. Heneage, he therefore wished to see some  provision now made, while there is  yet time. He requested that His  Honour's suggestion be put in the  form of a motion when motions were  called for.  S. M.

A. BATES, -       - Editor and, Proprietor  SaHBSHB  on  FRIDAY, APRIL 30th, 1915  The proper termination of this' war is the execution of the  Kaiser Wilhelni and the execution or life imprisonment of .the  Crown Prince and probably of a number of other members of  the Imperial  family and the Junker aristocrarcy.lt may be  , difficult to bring about, but this should-be the aim and object  of all the Allies' operations. The soft-hearted humanitarian-  ism which during the last few centuries has absolved personal  rulers from responsibility for the crimes which they have committed in war is not based upon Christianity or justice. It is tlie  result mainly of the extensive inter-marriage of the reigning  families, which has given every royal personage a set of, relatives and. defenders in every country in Europe. This inter-marriage system, we may confidently believe, is now dead. The progress of democracy and the growth of national consciousness  ..will henceforth make it imposible for a nation such as the  British to view with equanimity the tying up of its monarchy  with an entangling .web of "alliances" which are powerless to  prevent warfare.and effective only to prevent justice tbeing done  upon those "who made the war. .  'The constitution of Germany is such.as to make the Kaiser, by  divine right, personally responsible for his country's action in  precipitating the most murderous war in history, and that responsibility can be purged only by blood. Nor is the mere  declaring of war the limit of responsibility resting on the Kaiser  he, and he alone, is the person on whom rests the blame for the  assassination of unarmed and helpless civilians by his soldiers  on land and his submarines at sea. In the case of the submarines there are the cleverest and most direct orders from head  quarters, which the officers on board could not disobey without  treason, to their soveriegn lord. It is not the captains who must  ' be hanged; it is one "higher up."���������Beck's Weekly,  We should say that hanging was too good for the Kaiser���������it  would end his misery too soon. The Napoleon idea would be better.    It worked nice once, and should work again.  ing and growing value were inaugurated, while Professor Robertson  was Commissioner of Agriculture.

In more recent years, Dr. Robertson was .chairman of the Royal Com  mission on Industrial Training ��������� and  Technical Education. Farmers in  all provinces are familiar with the  Survey of "Farms by the Commission  of Conservation and the Illustration  Farms of its Committee on Lands, of  which he  is chairman.  In these and many other ways  Dr. Robertson has given the farmers ���������of Canada the best that was in  him.

We commend that report to the consideration of all  our readers;, and also the good training that is being given to  British Columbia boys through that association.  The birth' notice of another paper in British Columbia has  been written, and the.healthy young child is called "The Victorian." and has been adopted by Mr. P. E. Simpson, sometimes  known among his intimate friends "Dad Simpson", who has  been in the province for twenty years, and "during all that time  never spoken or written a word that, to the best of our,judgment, was not beneficial to the Province and the people." This  is a good record and Bro. Simpson no doubt will cany, on the  good work;of "always, endeavoring to boost and not boom, to tell  the truth and not misrepresent."  ;We welcome the editor back to the newspaper field again and  trust that he will do for Victoria what he did for Cranbrook���������  make it better known, and more favorably known. Victoria  needs a paper of the kind that the first issue of the-Victorian  indicates its policy to be. He says, "we are tied to no clique  or clan", which would indicate that it will be independent and  ''A Paper for the People".    May The Victorian prosper.  ,   Under the Post Office Act, Sections  G5  and'*66,. the Postmaster General  has the exclusive privilege of receiv  ing, collecting, conveying and delivering letters within Canada.  Bills and accounts whether in open or sealed envelopes, as well as  circulars or other printed matter enclosed in envelopes sealed or ready  to be sealed, are "Letters" within the  meaning of the Post Office Act.  There is a penalty under Section  136 of the Post Office Act which may  amount to $20.00 for. each letter unlawfully carried.  It has been brought to the attention of the Post Office Department  that some business firms desiring to  avoid paying the War Tax which became effective on the 15th April, propose making arrangements . for the  delivery of accounts, bills, circulars,  etc., through means other than the  Post Office, contrary to tlie Postal  Act, and a warning-is hereby given  that the Post Office Department intends to insist that the law shall be  rigidly. lived up to, and will in no  circumstances allow, these parties to  avoid paying the otijp cent tax which  has been imposed for war purposes.  . All letters conveyed, received, .collected, sent or delivered in contravention of the Post Office Act will be  seized s?nd necessary, steps immediate  ly taken for the prosecution of the  offenders in all-cases where the law  has been contravened.  ^\  SBBXSSSCCSSffiSEZ:  nil f������il.C  ���������V ��������� .��������� .HI - VV U W^L������l>JLWJUUIAU.^-i.Tge  President, Chas.

THE FARMERS AND THE  RED CROSS SOCIETY  Last week we published in this  paper, an appeal on behalf of the  Red Cross Society, by Dr. James W.

A resolution' was passed expressing! the opinion- of tlie meeting  that Boy Scouts should not attend  Cadet Camps as-Boy Scouts; that  this does not prevent Boy Scouts,who  are also Cadetts from attending Cadet Camps as Cadets.  Re funds for the Association. A  resolution was passed that a subcommittee be struck by the chair  with a \iew of forming an Association from which, by membership fees  a revenue could be obtained to defray  expenses of Grants to District camps  travelling and other expenses incidental to the work of the movement.  His Honour promised to see what he  could do with a view to.the forming  of the proposed Association.  A motion that a paid Assistant  Secretary be appointed, was laid on  the table, the: Association finances at  the present not allowing for further  liabilities.'  The Hon. Secretary, by motion,was  requested to have the Annual Report  printed and circulated as usual.
