A communication from our member at-Victoria wan read.    He stated  thtt the government would give  no  promise of a   -a    *t   ���������    ds     build-  "   ing   the   North- -F. rk bridge.    The  mayor  said   that   when   be was in  Victoria   he -had   itt;rviewed   the  ; minister of   ,,. blic  works   on   the  subject. The iniinater iiHfi said that  there was'some hope of a  grant being   made,'     .   -he .would give no  .   definite promise.    . ,    -  A committee from  the. board   of  - trade   consisting   of H.   E. Wood-  * - land, Dr Acres and. August- Schnitter waited on the council and asked  for an office and a -grant to defray  the. expenses of its upkeep. The  mayor assured the committee that  the council w uld do e erything it  cou[d to assist the board.  Aid. Bonthron, chairman of he  board of works, made a long report.  The agent the Townsite company  had "informed  him  that   a portion  of the road from Sixth street to the  Great N rthe'������������������  station   trespassed  on   private   property.    To   extend  Bridge street,   said  Mr. Bonthron,  to the station, it wonld be necessary  to grade the center of the McCallum  slough for h considerable  distance,  and to extend Sixth' street to Water  street would mean  either  the  aero  plane route or to trespass on private  property, as the Townsite company  owned  three  lots  through which a  right of way would have to acquired  Alter   the   various   phases  of this  perplexing state had been fully discussed, the mayor, on   motion,   a p.  pointed the members of the board  of works as a com mittee to interview the manager of the Townsite  ompuny and endeavor to secure a  right of way ihrough the above  mi'ntio>ied property.  The chairman of ihe hoardVf  works also reported that he had received  numerous complaints   from  ranchers regardingthe bad condition      The  f?llowin8  is  the   minimum  ,,r p���������i������������������.w, o,    ';"���������* ���������-. v ��������� ���������IUU-.-and maximum temperature for each  of Columbia street, from the Cooper day   during  the   pPa8t   week  a8 re  bridge to 1 rotter's house.

The cost of  a 4tinch pipe-to Mr. Carter's Bouse  "would bai900; to the Great North-  erq   about   61700.-  City   Engineer  Reid  was 'present, and  stated that  the connecting up of. these two dead  ends would make tf'fgreat  improvement in the_ system.    At-present, if  an accident happened tothe Winnipeg avenue line .the entire Went end,  as   well, as   the   C.P.R.,  would be  without   watei.'.  The   matter -was  Ihorougnly discussed, andth'e -con-  consus of opinion   'appeared   to-be  that,the amount,for the  entire  line  should-be included in the estimates,  and then     the ci .j    .   not  see-its  way clear,to put in the whole line it  wound    have   to   content   it-e f by  constructing the first link.  Tlie chairman of, the water and  light committee' reported that the  city electrician wa willing to fur-  nibh a chart of the cily lighting  system, hut that he did not think it  advisable to do so until next; fall',  as - numerous' changes would ,'e  made during the summer. On motion of Aid. H- nniger and Manly,  the matter was deferred, and in the  meantime the ' electrician's salary  was'fixed at $137.50        month.  Aid. Donaldson thought a crosswalk should, be put down across  Goevrnmerit avenue at the Great  Northern station.'Referred to the  board of works. Aid. Donaldson  was  als'.   ,v������f   mi- the  time limit for paying water d  light rates should be extended another day in order to overlap the  Graat Northern payday, but������ nothing was done in this matter.  Aid. McCallum reported that the  water.and light committee had de  cided to accept the proposition made  at the last by fhe Westinghouse company f a 20 p ��������� cent discount on  100 electric light meters.  The  clerk was instructed to furnish City Engineer Reid with all the  information in his possession for the  chart of the city waterworks system.  Aid. Bickerton gave .notice   that  at' the next meeting he would introduce' a bylaw to regulate tbe expenditure   of   certain   moneys in each  ward approximately   in   proporiion  to the amount of   revenue  received  from the same wards.  A   long .discussion  was provoked  by Aid. Bickertou'*proposition that  after   a   consumer had paid for his  ! electric   light meter in rentals, the  J'rent should."cease..������������������ The majority of  tde members of the council  seemed  to" think that this would   not   be  a  good business priuciple to establish.  Mr. Gaskey Addressed Two  Meetings Bere  Last  Wednesday  Canada Is Characterized the  Melting Pot of the  .   Nations  METEOROLOGICAL  report. He was also authorized to  use his own' judgment whether to  get one of the city wagons overhauled or to purchase a new one.  Aid.

Ki Caskey,   of   Toronto,  who visited here   la.-t    Wednesday,  '.why   "should   we  not   invest   our  millions to make sure of a good and  useful citizenship in these  people as  they enter Canada as settlers?   They  are coming at the rate ot half a million a year, and  from Europe   and  Asia, as well as from other parts  of  the Anglo-Saxon world.    And   what  are we doing for  them   by   way   of  broviding true and uplifting inviron-  ments.   morally   and   spiritually?"  he askrd.  Mr. Caskey addressed two meetings on the 25th, one of church  workers in Holy Trinity parish hall  at 3 p.m. and the other at a . 6:30  o'clock supper in the Davis banquet ball,, where the room was  taxed to it's full capacity and the  deepest interest was manifested,  The meetings  were   interdenomi  national   and   all   the    Protestant  churches were represented by   both"  laymen   and     ministers.      W.   E.  Chandler occupied the cwair at the  afternoon meeting   and John Donaldson presided at the evening gathering.    Rev. C.  W.  King   reviewed  briefly the origin of the  movement  and its plan-of action   as  a  leading  force in Christendom, showing  that  as related to meeting the needs of the  spiritually and physically   destitute  at-home and abroad   this movement  stood for investigation, organization  and education;    No   new  organization   was   asked   for,   nor does the  movement raise and administer any  mission funds.    That work and the  sending out of workers is left to the  various.churches and their missionary boards.  Mr. Caskey, who followed with   a  stirring address,, spoke at length  on  the   many   priceless    privileges   of  those living in gospel lands ������s compared with those-of   the nen-Chris  tian world, and   affirmed   that   the  virtue of womanhood and childhood  was notsafe in   a church less community of any size, nor would  any  man present care to raise a family in  an unevangelized center of  population  blessed with-one physician to every  six hundred individuals. And' he  pointed out the fact that all nations  were now open and earger for Christian raissio'narids; and that^while  twenty seven millions of dollars bad  been given by tbe home churches  last year for foreign missions, evan-  gejiatic, educational and medical,  the.native contributed over five and  a half million dollars to the work,  the purchasing power of which lo  them was abont equal to tbe home  contribution.  Mr.',Caekey refened to Canada  as  "the melting pot   of  the   nations,"  and appealed strongly to his hearers  to lend a strong hand  and  show   a  patriotic spirit in meeting   the   real  needs of the newcomers flowing into  our country, so that the   fusion   of  population would be of the veiy best  Christian    manhood   and    worn m-  hood.    'I he speaker, by   a   number  of   telling   illustrations,   impressed  upon his hearers the  great   blessing  that inevitably came to all who were  unselfishly active in the good work.  On    motion   of  Messrs. Chandler  and Mill   , afte    a   word of   warm  appreciation from Rev T G. Barlow,  a hearty vote of thanks was tendered  M .      s<-y by   the   meeting,    and  Rev: M. D. McKee closed  with tbe  benediction.

Crop competitions will be held  here during the coming season in  oats and potatoes���������two acres for  oats and one half acre for potatoes.  The prizos donated for this competition are very generous. Members  wishing to enter the competition  should hand in their names to the  secretary at an early date.  The British Columbia government, being desirous of extending  the planting of corn and alfalfa, has  this year made special preparations  to donate seed of these varieties to  all institutes.  President C. C. Heaven  read   his  report of the happenings at  the   recent   convention   held  at Victoria,  when many resolutions   were   dealtx  with,   among   them   the following:  Cheap money   for  farmers;   legalizing   wire   fences;  exemption  from  taxation   for   improvements   upon  agricultural land; Orientals to be disallowed from owning land in .British  Columbia; firearms act to be amended ia favor of the farmer;  duty   on  agricultural implements to be taken  off; cattle guards, onus of proof to  be placed upon the railroads; circulating libraries for the farmers, and  many other subjects of   equal interest to the welfare of the farmers.  John T. Lawrence read an excellent paper on. "Can a Fruit Grower  Raise a Dairy Herd When His  Land is All Set Out to Trees?" The  address.caused a healthy discussion.  The next meeting of the institute  will be held in the city hall on  Sat  urday afternoon,   March   7,   at   3  o'clock.   All interested  are invited  to attend and to join the institute.  The government .horticulturist  will be in the city on .Tuesday,  March 3, to start the pruning school  in connection with the Farmers' institute. Ben Hoy will be h'ree, too.

President Taft's Two Seats  "When President Taft was Secretary  of War he set out one afternoon for a  baseball game, with two tickets in his  pocket. He was in the habit of buying two seats so that he would have  plenty of room. When he got to the  grandstand he hai.ded out the two tickets. The usher look in at a glance  what they were for and led.the way  to the seats. When he reached them  he paused.  What's the trouble, young man?  said Mr. Taft.  Sorry, Mr. Secretary, said the usher,  but if you sit in these two seats you  are going to have some difliculty. They  are on opposite sides of the aisle.

"Unfastened, sir," he reported; "evidently pried up from the roof���������IoqIj  broken."  He passed up on to the roof, and  Sloan followed..  ���������The large expanse of lint, tinned roof  was surrounded by it fanciful iron railing.. In one place 1 ������e railing bad disappeared. There was a gap of perhaps fifteen feet- Birch crept to the  edge of the roof and peered over.

Let's have Blunt up here." ne  fetched the valet, r.nd the two detectives pointed out the broken railing to  tho astonished servant.  "But. sir." he protested. "I am sure  It was not broken yesterday, because  the gardener would have removed it.  He cut the grass yesterday aud cleaned  up the yard thoroughly. You see! it  has fallen directly underneath the library windows, and some of it sticks  ��������� right up In the turf."  "You heard no sound in the 'night;  you are sure?"  "I am sure, sir.

"Thank*you, Blunt. That will  do for tho present." -  When the valet ��������� had disappeared  down the trapdoor Birch dropped to  his knees and made a searching examination'of thereof. In the slight  layer of dust .some clew might be  . found.  "It's here, sir:'���������be looked up with a  smiling face���������"the tracks' of the 'big  blackbird.' And the discovery reveals  how the otfier two murders were committed." .  Sloan knelt down beside him and  watched the movement of Birch's* lingers as he pointed out the tracks made  by the 'rubber,"tired landing wheels of  an aeroplane.-When the machine had  made its departure it had carried away  fifteen feet .of the onjmcutal railing  from tl\p roof.  '������������������Find a foreigner who answers to  the description of Van Benjidek. If  he Is a skilled aviator he's your mau,"  was Sloan's decision.  . "You remember that the residence of  Mr. Fliekinger is of this same type-  flat roof1', and so forth?" questioned  Bircb as they returned to the office.  "I remember, and I also recollect  that Thomas Benson lived at the Hotel  Batwell. a'nd "liis room was in the annex, a flat roofed wing.

"I'll be there at that investigation,"  he sajd grimly. *  Two days afterward he returned to  the office with a chain of evidence that  left no doubt that the unlucky aviator  had been the murderer of tho threa  men, whom ho believed had worked  him harm. The shoes lie had worn corresponded in every detail with the footprints found-In the attic of the Din-  man house, and In his pockets'"were  found not only Mr. Hinman's jewelry,  but diamonds that were afterward  identified as the property of James  Fliekinger.  There was nothing left to do in the  matter. Retribution had overtaken the  murderer before he could make use ot  his guilty gains. The "big blackbird"  bad proved a bird of evil omen to him.  India's Minerals.  The growing importance ��������� of the  mineral industry of India is explained in the annual report of the director -^f the Geological Survey of India for 1912, which | has just been  issued.'  Tbe aggregate value of the mineral production of India in 1912 reached the"* large total of 545,302,422,  which represents an Increase of $6,-  513,945 "over the figures 'of the preceding twelve months.  Coal is b;' far the most 'important  mineral product of India. The value  of the output of the coal fields In  1912 reached a total of ������16,088,374,'  which represents an advance of over'  thirty-two per cent. The aggregate  output amounted to nearly 14,750,-  000 tons, which was almost .sixteen  per cent, more than the total of the  previous year, and nearly 2,000,000  tons in advance of the output of the.  boom year, 1908, when the figure  exceeded 12,750,000 tors, and the  average price at the pit's mouth advance to^$1.20.  Gold ��������� comes next to coal in the  mining industries of India, and at a  time when some of the gold fields  of the world ' report a diminishing  output it is interesting to note m  India an advance of $163,602, or one  and five-tenths per cent, in the production of.,the Indian . mines. Tho  advance is not Very large, but tho  aggregate yield of the fields reached  the total of $11,040,977.  army. Accordingly there Is plenty of  "plot" in tho following story:  The officer, who bad been discharged  at the close of the Seven Years' war,  Importuned the king to be reinstated.  Weary of the incessant solicitations of  bis troublesome visitor, Frederick nt  last gave oiders that he should-never  be admitted to'his presence.  Some weeks later a moot bitter, libel  against liis majesty appeared. Fred-  crick seldom gav^ himself any concern  about such pasquinades, but thc present one exasperated him soWicb that  he offered a reward of 53 fiiedrichs ot  gold for the discovery of the author.  Tho day following the disgraced  lieutenant colonel demanded and obtained an audience.    '  "Sire," he began, on being admitted;  "your majesty has just promised 50  fiiedrichs for. the discovery of the author of a recent publication. I am  come to claim tbe recompense. Behold  In me the unfortunate libelor. My fife  I forfeit freely, but remember your  royal pledge and, whlleyou punish me,  send to my poor wife' and children the  rewaro. due to the informer."  The king, although struck with the  sad extremity and M>lf sacrifice" of the  officer, said sternly:  "Go Instantly to the fortress of Span-  dau and there await my judgment."  "1 obey," said the culprit; "but tha  money ?'V  "Within two hours your wife shall  receive it," said the king. "Take this  letter and give; it to the commandant,  but he must not open It until after dinner."  The lieutenant colonel arrived at  Spandau and gave himself up as a  prisoner.
