The money  that goes to California for fuel  oil is lost, to British Columbia.  It enriches!California at the"' expense of British Columbia, and  is besides taken away from the  home coal industry. Millions of  dollars have been invested in  the coal "mines of the province,  and flourishing cities hare been  built up on the industry. These  cities have again contributed to  the prosperity of distributing  centres, such as Victoria and  Vancouver, have giveu business  to the steamship lines ancl. railways of the transportation companies, have aided and hastened  farming developments, and generally contributed more than any  other industry to the business  prosperity of the province. Is  this industry, the thousands of  men it employ?, aud the communities it directly sustains, to  be crippled or sacrilccd to a for"  eigu product? The Victoria  Hoard of Trade, recognizing the  inherent justice of the local case  for protection, nud rcnlizing how  closely its prosperity i.s idcutifr  ed with the mining centres of  the Island, has endorsed the action of the local trade council,  Vancouver has yet to be hcaul  from, although it was communicated with at tic same time ns  Victoi ia, There may bc ninny  good reasons for the Vancouver  board of trade's delay in takiuy  Strong opposition to  oposed duty has developed  the   true- facts.    No   Cauadian  board of trade cau stand for the  special   treatment   of a .foreign  product as against a home product,   More than this Vancouver  is diicctly interested in the prosperity of the  coal   industry.    It  is the distributing centre for the  mining    communities   ou     the  coast,   aud its wholesale  houses  do a large business with the min  ing cities on  the island.    Vancouver is directly and largely in  terested'iu the prosperity'of the  Island cities.    It is losing business because of the depression in  .the-coaUtrade,-aud-t-his���������depress-*-*  ion today is caused by  the. fact  that oil fuel from  California has'  ;taksn away the market from is:  laud mined cool.    Oil  fuel  has  done this because  it   comes   in  duty free, whereas coal   pays   a  royalty, lax of ten  cents" a  toe.  Surely the Vancouver Board   of  Trade will join,, with  the   other,  boards  of trade iu the   province  iu the effort to secure fair treatment for such an important home  industry as  conl mining, Surely  with the others,  ihe  Vancouver  Board of Trade will give its sup  port and assistance   to the campaign to restore tlie prosperity of  the mining cities of the islaud,  when Vancouver itself is so close  ly interested  aud will benefit ro  directly.���������Nanaimo Herald,  -  ���������**���������������   NMAN- ISLAND' NOTES  A .very well* attended Libera'  meeting was held in the DenmaiJ  Island Athletic Hall, on February 24th. for the purpose of  choosing delegates to attend * a  meeting to be held at Courtenay  on the 26th"jFeb.

Hugh picked up  his  coat, still lying where he had l'oldeu  it under  Hannah's head, und pushed  open the door of the house.   Entering  the hall they saw Hannah there, silting looking very pah; nnd ill, while  titCs two woi-ion servants, disturbed by  the noise of the recent struggle, were  hovering around  in a state of great  alarm and bewilderment.  ���������hey greeted tin* t.wo young men  -with a volley of excited cries, questions, and exclamations, to which  Lord Ambrose replied briefly, while  Hugh wont up to the wounded man  ���������and looked tit his injury.  "A nasty blow but not serious,"  1 think," :.e said.  "Hut who did it?" asked the cook,  with an accusing eye on her master,  whom she evidently suspected.  "Why don't some ,one get, the poor  man a doctor?" demanded tho. housemaid.  "My good creatures," said * Lord  Ambrose, "do please keep quiet���������1  have sent for the police, who will be  here iu a uiiuutj. There lias been  burglars "  "Burglars? who said burglars?'  cried Hannah, twitching his head  away from Hugh':) hands and jumping  up from his chair; "who said burglars?"  lie presented a. ghastly enough picture as he stood there with the blood  staining ins pale face his inJgiilicant  features and narrow eyes suddenly  alight with some great passion, of desire or fear it seemed, in the flame of  wnich one might well fancy the whole  of his small nature was transformed  ��������� as. ty fire.  "Hiis-glars," repeated Lord Ambrose soothingly, "robbers, you know  1 suppose they attacked you when you  opened the door, but they did not succeed iu getting anything."  "How do you know that? " cried  Hannah, unexpectedly, and turned,  and with a kind of staggering and uncertain run went rushing up the  stairs,' while the' others stood and  .stared after him.   ���������  "Well, vhat next?" said Lord ��������� Ambrose.  "lt has gone to his head," said the  "hou rem alar" an d~-h e -is���������m a d���������f o r��������� a v ci*-  more."  "Which should be a lesson to them  aa did it," ��������� said the cook, with her  Buspicious eye alternating ' between  Hugh and Lord Ambrose.  "Let us  follow him,"  said    Hugh:  "come  along," Houstoad;   you   women  ������������������wait here till the police come."  The two young- men ran up the  Btairs after the valet; and were astonished i-ga.n to li::d that he did not  pause at his maa'.er's room, mit mad..-  liis way up to the ������econd floor, wherj  liis own room was situated. He still  wont unsteadily, with weak steps and  groping with his hands, but linding  the door of his room he lurched  against il, and entered, and fell clown  by the side of a trunk, which1 stooil  in tho middle of Uio room, and which  he at onco opoucd and began to  search with a wild anxiety,  "I say," said Lord Ambrose to  Hugh, "dooi Hannah think the burglars wero after lilm and his belong-  lags?" ���������     n  "It looks liko It," said Hugh briefly.  "And I thought it was dn''ii silver," murmured Lord .Ambrose; "bo-  hold u losson against pride."  Hugh did l.ot answer, but entered  Hii.iiah's room, the door of wliich the  valot had loft wide open, heedless or  ignoiimt i.int ho wa** . followed. He  wus still wildly searching in IiIh  -trunk, from which as Lord Ambrose  entered lift threw out a very lino am-  broldortfd wnlsicont.  "Horo, confound It," cried Lord Ambrose, catching sight of this, "that's  miuo' by Jove!"  "Tnko t, then,' snarled llannan,  continuing hln wild uiui frantic search  us a iiiuii iuig.it who was seeking for  BomotlihiK thiii. was nion; than his  Ufo,  "Hullo," wild Hugh, calcblng sigln,  at ho tiho oa'A nnmo, of two ancient  bolth'H covnrnd with dust and 'dwells  Hint were on th ii wiiKlii-tiinil; "what  nro tlmsc'i yoi.r man knows goo I  tipple, I  think."  ���������"T|H>    lu-St    Wlllll    I'M!

"They never got it, they never got  i," he howled, and even as he shoul-  ,j tiiis, as he snatched the envelope  ap, his expression changed'suddenly  .'rom triumph to .despair, and he let  .limself collapse into a heap, still,  however, clutching the envelope, iu  .lis hand, "lt has been oi cued aud  ,-hey have seen it," he mutter;.1 in the  voice of a dead man.  Hugh stooped down and picked up  th '.. piece of dull glass or crystal that  liad attracted his attention. On it was  gummed a slip of paper on which was  written in very small letters, "A  model of the' 1 .ggest diamond in the  world���������exact to size -ind shape,"  "Nonsense," said Hugh aloud,  "there is not a diamond in the world  one-half the size of this thing." He  touched the shoulder of Hannah, who  seemed to have entirely collapsed.  "C'omo, my man," he said, "what is  the meaning of all this?"  "Why, look," Hannah muttered,  holding up this envelope, "they have  opened  this and seen  the ligures,"  "Seen what ligures?" asked Hugh;  "there is a paper in there still."  "But they will havo read It," repeated Hannah, dully, as he drew, out  a sheet of yellow paper on which a  row of ligures seemed to be written,  and looked at it, and Hung it down on  the floor. "What is the use of it  now?" he muttered, "what is the use  of it now they have seen it? 1 must  have been mad not to have burnt it  before."  And he got up from his knees and  went to a chair anil sat on it with  arms and head hanging down, like a  man* totally cruuhed.  "What is this?" asked Hugh, showing him the lump of dull glass he  held.  Hannah made no answer. It hardly seemed he heard or was conscious  of what was passing round him. Lord  Amurdse got up slowly from' the bed  where he had fallen under the weight  of the handkerchief Hannah , hau  thrown in his face, and went towards  the trunk.  "1 should jusl like to see how much  more of my property this rascal has, ������������������  ne said; --Llien when the police came  I will give him in charge." Willi a  very pained, muignaui look-he picked  up the silk tie������ of his he had noticed,  'He might have let nie wear tlie thing  just once," complained Lord Am-  urose sadly; "the one .1 put on to go  iu Lady h-anie's because 1 thought I  hadn't got another, was simply shab  by.".  "Is this yours?" asked Hugh, show-  in,-; liim the lump of dull glass,  "No, what is it?" asked Lord Am  L-io'se, and read the neatly written  iabel. "Rubbish," he said, "there  never was a -jiamond tliat ���������ize���������lord,  if there A'ce���������hi, yoi, Hanah, ./net a  did you steal this?"

Cyprus has been a protectorate of Great Britain since 1878, much  as Egypt has been controlled by ihu  British, although both in reality belonged to Turkey. This is not the  first time that Cyprus comes definitely and distinctly under British control, itichard I. having conquered"- it  on his way east when on tho Third  Crusade, l-'rom 1570 and three centuries thereafter, or up till 1878, Cyprus was luid'.-r Turkish rule, and was  fo ced to endure all,the usual forms  of Turkish misrule and cruelty.

The island of Cyprus had a population in 1901 of 237,022, consisting  largely of Greeks and Turks. Abou:  twouty-twj per cent, of the island adhere to the Mohammedan religion.  The island produces the usual Mediterranean iruits, wines, tobacco, siik,  sponges, some grain and i considerable amount of mineral wealth.

Let us tako t-o thing at its worst,  ana imagine tiie penultimate Cossaei;  on tho Urals and tho last French door,  iteeper evicted from Bordeaux. Then,  we begin a maritime war ugal. st Germany, and are no worso off than wlien  wo uegan it against Napoleon, alii  when lie had nearly ull lOuropcn under  his heel.

These tilings will  Bootno many sorrowful Germans in a  gloomy autumn, and we havo no reunion whatever to deprive thoso poor  pooplo of anything Uiat thoy can invent; tor themselves iu tlie "way of con-  Bolation.  But at the samo time there is'no  particular reason why wo should allow  tho rest of the world to harbor thesa  Billy illusions. We have in organized  form in ,the Britisi; Isles at the present  moment, not 600,000 men,-but exactly  double this number, namely 1,200,000  men, and tho number grows almost  taster than we cau cope with it.' At  tho same time the stream of men  from the British Dominions and depend ucie3 begins to How in. The  lirst 100,000 are already with us, and  from all corners bf the empire thero  has begun, and thoro will continue to  come in so long as the war' lasts, a  steady stream of drafts to maintain  the strength of units in the field, aud  of fresh units to increase the numbers of the divisions at the front.  The gentle Germans told Mr. Krug-  er that wo oould oniy place 70,000 men  in tbe field, and Oom Paul was so littlo  .vu'sod in the habits aud customs 01  our people as to believe his mentors.  When we produce', seven or eight  times as many troops as the German  estimate? the credit of, the Nachrich-  teu Bureau went down to zero ut Pretoria. Why should we be unable to  iniptovise. armies when we liavo so  recently done it? The Germans are  ������������������ perfectly right in one sense only to  ii.oula.tQ upon what exists. We can begin to light only with what we possess in organ .zed form, trained, officered, and armed, and if it is a question of ii six weeks' war. it is pretty  ..bad for us. ,.

Tills war, for us, has hardly begun.  Wo havo sent tho point of our advanced guard Inlo Franco to skirmish  with the onomy, In tho spring the rest  of'thi* advanced guard will follow, and  Bomowhore towards tlio close of 191C  tho main body will begin to come  within view.

We are not compelled,  liko Germany, to thiave ,'25 per cent, of  all balances in our-banks, and then  scream out that a national loan has  been successful. The heresies that  Germany adopts' in matters of finance  only grieve us becauso there will be  less German cash at the peace, and  so, compulsoi-ily, more German territory to be divided up to pay for the  war.  What we, perhaps none of us, quite  realized before this war broke,out,  was that it was not ordinary ana  could not end In an ordinary way.  The power which Germany has (level-  oped, her soaring ambitions, and the  brutality with which .she, has waged  war, have shown all the Allies that  Germany, aims at the hegemony of not  only Europe, bu* the world. AU the  values of things now , change, the  values of money, and of lives, and  there is not one citizen of the Allied  Powers who does . ot count death in  this war to be a glorious and honorable end, and victory to be worth any  sacrillce iu the world.

Modern Guns Readily  Reduce Fortified Cities  Formerly fortified cities were an  important, feature for national defense, but the- modern gunmaker has  apparently radically changed ,. conditions. Permanent fortifications consist of def msive works constructed by  a nation to secure.permanent possession of strategical positions of importance within tbo territory under its  control. These would generally in.  elude national capitals, great commercial aud railway centres, harbors,  important bridges aud mountain  passes, great concentration camps and  depots of supplies.  Many European cities .ire really  largo forts surrounded by ono or, more  lines of smaller detached forts located at strategic points somo distrnce,  varying from live io fifteen miles,  from the walls of the city. Paris, Bol-  fort, Strassburg or some of tho many  examples.of-tliis type. Other cities,  liko Uogo, aro surrounded by ono or  moro linos of do*, .chod forts, while the  city itself is practically open or un;  fortified.  l'larth embankments, stono and con.  crete walls and .-steel shields und turrets enter into the construction of tho  modern perm: ucnt fortifications, They  are built in times of peace, armed  with tho latest typfi of heavy guns,  and are supposed to embody tho best  thoughts of the strategic and of the  milllary engineer.  Our text books tell us that "a position protected by permanent fortifications and propt-riy garrisoned should  yield only after a protected siege."  This was quite, true yesterday, but today the fcniniakor Is turning out a  new portable howitzer of wonderful  power, which, if wc can trust lhe contents of recent war bulletins, is sounding the death knoll of the permanent  fortifications ,of  .  adern   limes.  Ijimi before the advent of the 11-  inch howitzer, a number of military  writers Ox: rossed strong doubts of  the value of permanent fortifications  .IS applied to large cities and great  camps. They argued, and'cited many  instances in support tnat a fortified  city does not prevent an invasion of  tin national territory by a strong  force sufficieLl to invest the forti:ied  place and immobilize its defenders���������  compelling them to capitulate" within a  comparatively short timo���������while he  proceeds "'���������ith' th.. main operations  with the bulk of his troops.

During tho last fow days of August  tho Gorman army, which hud crossed  into Franco from Lorraine, advanced  tn Nancy and attempted to storm  that part of tho rlatoau in front of  the stronghold; Tho French forco was  greatly inferior in numbers in the  early stages of tno fighting, bu*. had  some batteries of the much dreaded  75's. On the slope, immediately facing,the German advance guard a  large number of old cannon, now almost obsolete, were placed as a blind,  while the deadly lighter guns pound-  ed_ away* from a hidden position in the  rea"f.  TLo enemy wure completely deceive  ed, and for fifteen hours bombarded  the useless pieces, from whicli only a  few .shots were iired. My travelling  companion was ono of a small detachment in charge of the old guns.  Whilo recennoitjring some distance  down the slope ho was surprised by a  German scouting party, and taken  prisoner.  Du.'ing tho evening the Germans,  thinking that the batteries they had  been sliel.ing all *ay' were silenced,  attempted a cavalry charge. The  French gu..ners in the rear waited  until they were bout 800 yards distant, and the order was then passed  along the line, "At 750 yarls���������Fire!"

Ho refused to  say a word, and waa thereupon threatened with death.  "I am a prisoner ot war," he Mid,  "and you may not shoot mo."  "You may understand tho theory ot  war," replied Uio Gorman staff c*I-  flcor, "but you evidently don't realize  Uiat it ia quite different from th*  practico."  lio persistently declined-to give hia  captorH any Information which might  bo useful to Uiem, and waa thereupon  searched aud placed in a tent lo Bleep  with a guard at tho outranco.0 Next  morning he waa given uo breakfast,  but at midday ho roceivod something  to oat, and was led to tho headquarters ot tho genii!al staff.

Eight 4,1 inch guns gave  sovouty-nlne rounds iu one minute;  while eight four-irch guns got off  lll'ty-nlne rounds in for,ty-llvo seconds.  It will be noted that there Is no  relative connection between size 0.  Dore, weight of projectile, and rapidity of* llro-dollvery; for we find the  9,2 inch .gun in tlio foregoing taole  discharging its projectile of USO lbs.  at tho rate of ii.5 rounds por minute, whilst tl.o six-iuob gun only gots  off its 100 lh. projru'tilu at the rate  of 7.10 round-** per minute.
