Sir Wilfrid Lanrier Replies
to Gag Methods  in the
Dominion Parliament
Sir Wilfrid Laurier obtained an
opportunity to (peak ill the house of
commons last Thursday night de
spite the disorderly scenes and tbe
methods of the government to hurry
the closure motion to a finish. Tbe
opposition leader wu heard after a
motion introduced by Dr. Pugsley
that tbe bouse adjourn at 9 o'clock
had been voted down. This gave the
Liberal chief the opportunity he
Sir Wilfrid roused his follower* to
a higb pitch of enthusiasm when he
declared he would rather stand defeated in opposition than be in office
by power of gag rule. The Liberals
rose and cheered eo persistently
that the speaker had to ask them to
preserve order in the house.
Sir Wilfrid charged Mr. Borden
with unfairness in his treatment of
himself and the opposition. He bad
applied the gag when he sbonld
have gone to the country, as tbe
Liberals had done when reciprocity
was obstructed. The opposition
could be gagged because they were
in a vinorilv, but tbe day of reckoning would come aa soon aa there
was a dissolution.
Sit Wiltrid was given a prolonged
cheer by bis follower*. He said thst
the spectscle that h id been witieiM I
tbat afternoon was a very apt com
mentary on the speech of big hon
orable friend, the prime minister,
who had stated and reiterated that
the new rules were not to prevent
free speech, but to prevent abuse.
The prime minister had heen pro

could always rely nn fair plav, but
the word* were scarcely out of tiie

how mucb fair play they were to

play, he said, tbe speaker called on
him to take the floor. Then Ihe
majority took away hia right to

Hon. F. D. Monk, former member

his old colleague. ' He declares that

been made- at • time of calm.
Some of the Conservative papers,
made by the opposition at that
time had impressed bim, and a compromise bad been offered and accepted.
"I found no fault; I never
whined," declared Sir Wilfrid. "As
tbe head of tbe government I
thought it fair to come down and offer a compromise. Sir, ia that not
better tban closure?"   (Cheers.)
The last occasion on whicb tbere
waa obstruction was in 1911, when
tbe reciprocity will wu opposed, lt
wae brought down on January 26,
and on July 29 not evening a preliminary vote bad been taken. The
measure wat met witb dilatory mo
tions of every kind; speech after
speech was, delivered in the "dog
days." He had not complained or
whined on that occasion either. He
could hav* introduced closure as
was now proposed, but had adopted
another course. He had appealed tu
the people.
'•We were defeated," Sir Wilfrid
added, "bufcas heaven is iuy witness, I would rather stand here today defeated than be in oflice by
power of tbe gag."
Tbe Liberals,, at tbis declaration,
rose in a body and cheered wildly
for some minutes.
Sir Wilfrid said that but for tbe
generous action of tbe minister of
marine he had proposed to move an
amendment to refer the resolution to
a committee to report upon it in accordance witb tbe binding rules.
This was in accordance witb traditions, but the prime minister knew
when be rose to speak that he wa*
going to gag the house and not allow free discussion of bis proposal.
Sir Wilfrid said he had intended
to move to strike out of tbe resolution the clause whicb prevents discussion on two day* of tbe week,
when the house is being moved into
committee of supplies. This had no
bearing whatever on the naval bill,
to facilitate the passsge of which
these rules were devised. It wu
just a plan to deprive the minority
of the right to state their grievances
before going into committee of supply. It was designed to prevent the
asking of searching questions affecting the government of the day. It
wu applying the gag to parliament
with a vengeance. In conclusion
Sir Wilfrid said: "Let me repeat to
tny right honorable friend: as you
sow, so shall you reap; as you are
fair, ao shall you inset with fairness;
as you are unjust, so shall you meet
with injustice. My right honorable
friend two year* ago took a certain
attitude on the reciprocity bill. He
has oo right to complain if the same
methods thai he made ase of are
applied to him in the present case.
My right honorable friend hu nol
forgotten the words of Shakespeare;
'This even-handed justice commends
the ingredients of our poisoned
chalice to our own lips.'
"The poison hu come already to
bis own lip* at the present day.
The poison that he offered to us today will come again to his own iips
at some future day. We are ia the

Drink  Chloroform  and Then   Plunge
From Porthole of Their State
Singapore. — A very mysterious disappearance of three Bisters
lu the night from tbe cabin which
they shared and the discovery of a
letter and a bottle which had contained chloroform were reported by the
captain of the Dutch steamship Van
Noort on his arrival here. The sisters were Gernjans named Diederlch,
and Ihey had been- touring ln Java.
They were last seen going to their
cabin at 10 p.m. the day before the
vessel reached port after having spent
the evening reading and chatting on
In the morning the serving boy,
bearing no answer to his knacks at
the cabin door, told the steward who
entered and found the women missing.
On the table was a note addressed to
the captain. This he opened. The
letter, written in German In pencil
was briefly to the effect that, all their
baggage was bequeathed to tbo captain, and was signed simply: Sisters
On a desk ln the cabin was n bottle containing a few remaining drops
of chloroform. A chair stood near
the porthole, and lt is conjectured
that the sisters each took chloroform
and then climbed through the porthole. The cabin was sealed by the
captain and a full inquiry will be
made at Batavia.

guide what purpose lt served.
He told him that lt was one of those
buildings In which criminals were

But what was the use of the hole
In the wall? he asked.

German General Who Organized Turk
Ish Army Disclaims Responsibility for Defeat
Berlin, Germany.—It Is no fault, of
mine, Is the keynote of nn article appearing In February's Issue of the
Deutsche Rundschau, over the signature ot Marshal von der Goltz, who
organized the Turkish army.
Marshal von der Goltz states that
many years ago he had carefully prepared a plan of maneuvers representing a Tui-co-Bulgarlan war. The
Turkish army wes commanded by Na-
7.1m Pasha, and the battle was to be
fought around Adrianople, in somewhat similar conditions to the present
Several days before the maneuvers,
however, wholesale arrests of commanders of both armies took place ln
Constantinople. What had happened
was that tbe ex-Sultan's spies had reported the coming war to their master, who feared a conspiracy, and
Marshal von der Goltz, who was already ln the field, hurried back to
Ylldlz Kiosk, to convince the sultan
that the maneuvers were quite harmless, and to obtain the release of the
arrested officers. The release was
granted, but there was never a question ot maneuvers again.
The marshal repudiates as Irresponsible statements the attacks on him
regarding the Turkish rout. He left
the Turkish service seventeen years
ago, antl was offered the post again in
100!*, but refused. The article appears to have bcen written at the suggestion of the German army staff, as
the bitter attacks made on the marshal bavo made a bad Impression here.

fill up a deep mud-hole on the common
before bis house, but without result.
One very wot night, however, as he
{was seated comfortably before his
fire, a tremendous cry for help was
heard from the outside. The farmer,
selling a lantern, opened the door and
peered out Into the darkness, to find
three of the council men, on their return "home from a meeting, had missed their way across the common, and
were now struggling Iu the mud-hole.
Well, gentlemen, said the old Lancashire son of the soil, ex he surveyed

A Lltli* Asslsunc*
I gave Coppers, the millionaire, his
flrst start In life.
With a bent pin at school.
Every mother who calls to mind
her own girlhood knows how urgently her daughter Is likely to need help
aud strength during the years between school days and womanhood.
It Is then that growing girls droop
and become fragile, bloodless and
nervous. Nature ls calling for more
nourishment than the blood can supply and signs ot distress are plainly
evident ln dull eyes, pallid cheeks,
aching backs, a languid step, fits of
depression, headaches and a dislike
for food. These signs mean anaemia—that ls bloodleusness.
The watchful mother takes prompt
steps to give her girl the new, rich
blood her system ls thirsting for by
giving Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
which make new blood and transforms
unhappy anaemic girls Into robust,
happy, bright-eyed young women.
No other medicine has ever succeeded
like Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, because
no other medicine can make that new,
rich, red blood which brings health
and vitality to weak, bloodless systems. Miss Mamlo Krouse, Cope-
town, Ont., says: "Dr. Williams' Fink
Pills have been a blessing to me
had been a sufferer .tor almost two
years trom anaemia, and seemed, no
matter what I tried, to be growing
worse. I was very palo and seemed
bloodless, suffered from frequent
headaches, the least exertion would
leave me completely tired out, and I
was very much discouraged and fretful. At last I was advised to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and got a
halt dozen boxes, and by the time
they were used I was feeling much
better. A few more boxes fully restored my health and I have since
been well and strong and able once
more to enjoy life."
These pills are sold by all medicine
dealers or will be sent by mall at 60
cents a box or six boxes for $2.60

Now Harry, go to Smith's the grocer, and get a quart ot the best mo-

sized Jugs.
When the boy had gone the vicar's
wife said: You didn't tell him to get
anything ln the other Jug. ls he going to leave lt at the shop?
No, ma'am; he's going to bring tt
back here again.
But why send two jugs to get a
quart ot molasses?
Well, you see, it's this way. It he
has a jug In each hand, he can't go
dipping his finger in the molasses and
eating It as he comes along.

A 49ER
The late James Ii. Keene, himself
almost a '49er, used to tell many a
story about the characters of '49.
It was difficult in those days, he
once said, to be a temperance man,
for to refuse a drink with a '49er was
a worse offence than to kiss the fellow's wife.
A '49er, twirling his long and drooping moustache, said to a tenderfoot
ln a bar-room:
Have some red eye with me.
Thank you—no, said the tenderfoot,
a total abstainer, firmly.
There was a tense silence ln the
crowded bar. Then the '49er reach
ed back to his hip-pocket and said
with a weary sigh:
Heigho, can't I even take a drink
without killing a man?

injurious because it contains caffeine,
the aame drug found In coffee).
' "My wife and I drank our first tup
of Postum a little over two years ago
and we have used lt ever since, to the
entire exclusion of tea and coffee. It
happened tn this way:
"About three and n half years ago
I had au attack ot pneumonia, which
left a memento In thc shape of dyspepsia, or rather, to speak more correctly, neuralgia of the stomach. My
'cup of cheer' had always been coffee
or tea, but I became convinced, after
a time, that thoy aggravated my
stomaoh trouble. I happenod to
mention Ihe matter to my grocer one
day and ho suggested that I give
Postum a trial.
"Next day It came, but the cook
made the mistake of not boiling It
sufficiently, and we did not like lt
much. This was, however, soon
remedied, and now we like it so much
that we will never chango back.
Postum, being a food beverage Instead of a drug, has been tho means
of banishing my stomaoh trouble, I
verily believe, tor I am a well man
today and have used no medicine.

notice that Mr. Spraggett, superintendent of roads in Grand Forks
riding, is quoted in a Spoka'ne paper
as saying that millions of dollars
will be spent on roads in British Columbia. VVe believe Mr. Spraggett
is right. Tbere are uo apparent reasons for doubling that millions will
be spent. The most pertinent question is, Are the roads that cost mil*
lions really worth millions? It is
claimed enough money has already
been spent on the mucb heralded

Discussing the closure moiion the
Ottawa -Citizen, the leading Conservative paper in Ontaria, says: 'The

despots and machine politicians,
giving a dangerous power to those
who would squander public money
by rushing through the house votes
for huge sums without adequate
critjci8tn. During the votes on es
timates in Britain many millions of
pounds are lumped together and
passed en bloc by means of the
closure, affording the opposition no
opportunity of criticising particular
items. And the system bas re
bounded upon the heads of those responsible for its introduction. Tbe
closure was devised at Westminster
by the Tories to overcome Irish obstruction. It is now being used by
the Liberals to force home rule for
Ireland tbrough parliament. Im
agine the chagrin of good protectionists in Canada to some day lind a
western group forcing free trade
through parliament hy means of the
closure. It will not do for Canada.
There are too many racial and religious problems requiring wide-open
debate. To employ the closure for a
measure inspired in Toronto might
cause a civil war." The Citizen
also attacks the Montreal Star (Con!)
for "Its daily diatribes on the
British Oerman scheme, thereby

Herring at Prince Rupert
An unique condition Is reported at
the present time ln the harbor ot
Prince Rupert, the Pacific terminus of
the Grand Trunk Paciflo Railway.
Myriads ot herrings are swarming
close to the shore and attracting numbers of visitors to watch the moving
banks of silver, that gleam and scintillate just below the surface of the
water. All kinds of methods are
being employed to scoop them out of
the water—In many cases simply for
the sporiof the thing, the fish being
immediately returned to their native
element. Some mess boys from one
ot the ships lot down a wire waste
paper basket and brought up a full
loud at the first attempt, while an ordinary bucket let down is reported to
have met with equal success. In one
case the herring managed to turn over
a seine net which they had filled and
lt ls said to be an actual fact hat th*
vast mass of fish close to the shore
heaves and tosses about the small
craft and scows riding at anchor
there. The run will last tor another

To Destroy Pasts.
There Is a simple remedy for destroying Insects tbat are sometimes found
on household pets-dogs, cats, birds,
etc.—which Is not generally known, but
which Is tela to be absolutely sure In
lu results. It Is simply tu wash tbe
animal wllb Iha water In which pota-
toea hav* been boiled. Wbon preparing the vegetables for dinner put plenty
oi wster tn the vessel lo wblcb tbey
are boiled; then, when the potatoes are
thoroughly cooked, pour (his water ot?
into a bucket or pau. When It ls aimoat cold apply It to tbe skin of th*
animal wltb a sponge or cloth, taking
car* tbat It soaks well Into tbe akin
If the animal bas long hair or thick
for; .then wltb a soft (crubblng brush
(( Mllbrnsb will do) (crub tbo skin,
separating the hair aa you work.
Do not rinse thia off with clear
water. Let It dry thoroughly first;
then wash the animal with clear water
and a good strong soap. Tbe first application Is generally effectual, but If
the case la a stubborn one It bad better be repeated a few times in order
to destroy th* eggs.
This I* (Iso a cure for th* paraslt*
In which mang* originates and I* said

Hew te Tell th* Different Cuts When
V*u Ar* Marketing.
Is considering how to buy meat, says
Uly Haxworth Wallace, lecturer on |
domestic science, we must look at th* [
relative cost as compared wltb tb*
nutriment to be gained from tbe different cuts, uo less than nt tbe qualities
which go to make good meat The
most expensive portions of tbe animal
are not necessarily tbe best, for greater
nutriment can often be obtained from
• cheaper cut, provided proper care
and time are allowed for the cooking.
Much unnecessary expense ls Incurred ln housekeeping because of the
fact that meals are not planned sufficiently In advance to allow of tbe use
of cheaper cuts of meat, wblcb, tn
order to be palatable, must be cooked
long and slowly.
The meet of young animals Is more
tender but at the same time less nutritious than that from animals of ma*
ture growth.
Beef and mutton, the standard meats,
are always ln season: lamb is at it*
Th*    Cutaway    Style
la Especially Designed.
The trim lines of this pink flannelette
room gown and the long coat sleeves
give it a smart up to dute appearance.
Pink sateen binds the edges, and a

It Is Most Convenient For Carrying
The camera apron wns devised foi
the convenient carrying of camera
parnpberniilln on out of door trips. A
yard nnd a quarter, of gray denim wer*
used. The body of tbe apron was a
straight piece twenty-six inches long,
with a strip eleven inches deep across
the bottom for pockets. Tbe remaining eight inch strip of denim was cut
luto three poekets, two of wbicb were
placed above nud oue us a patch pocket
over the middle ot Ihe luwer row.
Tape wns used for finishing tbe raw
edges of the three pockets and served
also for dividing the eleven inch strip
Into tbree more pockets. All raw edges
were finished with wide white tape
stitched twice. A facing of thlnuei
clotb was sewed on top, and draw-
strings were run through.
Tbe pockets held plate holders, focus
clotb. chamois skin, record book, etc.
One upper pocket wus lined wltb
chamois skin for tbe shinier, wltb bulb
and tubing whicb needed special protection. All pockets closed wltb a
■nap at the top, and the wbolo was
folded completely when not In use.
For a uuiu this might be made without drawstrings nt the top, nnd It could
be folded and carried by shawl straps.

What Man Understands Woman?
Tbe query, "What woman understands man?" is not proving half so
popular as Hughes le Iloux's query,
"Qui est I'honiuie qui comprehend les
femn-.es?" ("Who Is thc man who understands women?"), the answers to
wblcb nre filling tbe columus of L*
Matin of Paris.
Snys ono wise womnn, "A man may
understand auy womnn except the on*
whom he loves at tbe uge of eighteen."
Mine. Sulut-Molo says, "Tbe man
who understands us Is the man who
can admire everything In a woman,
even ber defects."
Another well known authoress asserts, "The man who can understand
us Is the mun who cau bo our confessor."
One who signs herself ..mille, says:
"The man who understands us is the

tbe sprins and early summer, while
pork, if eaten at all, should be served
only In tbe colder mouths.
The best beef ts the flesh of a steer
about four years old. It should lie
bright red In color, firm and marbled io
appearance from tbe proper blending
of fnt and lean, which shows even
feeding und that tbe animal bas not
been rapidly fatteucd tor killing. There
should also be a fair proportion ot
creamy white fat next tbe surface.
Lamb snd mutton hsve a larger proportion of fat tban beef, and the fnt Is
firmer. Tbe flesh of good mutton Is
fine grained and of a bright color. Tbs
smug mutton flavor so often to be
detected In this meat tan be virtually
eliminated by the careful removal ol
