Shatford, M.P.P. for Siinilkauieen, returned to Vancouver yesterday after- a  three days visit to Victoria, during  which he conferred with Sir RichaEd  McBride and other- mem hers of the  cabinet on important matters affecting his constituency. 'Mr. Shatford  was recently the recipient of a testimonial of the marked esteem in which  he is held by. his "constitutcnts. lie  was tendered a complimentary banquet at Keremeos. ;* The function was  the largest and most representative  gathering- in the history of the district.  In. referring, to-his recently completed tour of the district,. Mr. Shatford stated thati.trwas._.his_custom to  make a thorough inspection trip of all  portions of the riding, previous to the  opening of the government work in  the early summer, as the personal,  knowledge gained from actual contact with the wor k was far more satisfactory in dealing with the department.  "Everything is taking on a. very  prosperous appearance in the Siniilka-.  irreen," stated Mr-. Shatford. "This is  mainly owing to the Kettle Valley  and-V. V. &E. railways, which at present a re^n earing completion. These  two railways will open up this section  of the country, and render possible the  development of mines and largo tracts  of agricultural lands, the productiveness of which has been hindered in  the past by lack of transportation."  The completion of the connecting  links of railway steel would, accoiding  to Mr. Shatford, remove a very large  obstacle from the "paths of the horticultural and agricultural producers of  the in terror, *rin~t'ierT"sea7ch for"witter'  and better markets. From the latest  available reports when he left the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys, the  prospects for a bumper fruit crop this  season were very bright. This was  particularly true in the case of apples  as the maturing of the trees in the  younger orchards insured a highe������  rate of production as well as the fact  that the fire blight, a pest that proved  very troublesome last year, was not  doing much destruction this season,  owing to the dry weather.  Mr. Shatford referred to Princeton  as a very active centre in the Similkameen. At the present time it was a  very busy poin.t.and indications point--'  ed to- development irr. mining both  near* the town and other points  throughput the district.  Princeton, in. the.Similkameen, and  Penticton in the Okanagan, stated Mr.  Shatford,. would be the two most important points on the line of the railway from Ciilgary to Vancouver. Botii  were naturally situated as distributing centres, and he felt that a great  future awaited both these places.���������  Colonist.  Empress of INjand jammed During; Dense Fog on  -  &b.

She struck the Empress amidships  with such force, that,;the side, of the  great Ship was, pierced: and the plates  were ripped off for a considerable distance below the water-line. At once  she began to fill; and as the water;  poured in she careened..', oyer so far  that the launching, of the boats be-^  came a matter* of the;utmost difficulty.  SINKS IX "FOURTEEN MINUTES  In 14 minutes from i the time the  collision occur ed the;. Empress went  down, carrying down with her. hundreds, of passengers who had been unable to make their* way on deck.  The calls for* aid were heard at  Father Point wireless station immediately after they began, and two government steamers which had steam  up raced to the spot indicated. Before they arrived the Empress had  gone down and all that could be done  was to gather the survivors, many of  whom had taken to the boats or  thrown themselves into the cold water  with hut little clothing on them.  THAWED-- IN CABINS  It was almost three hours before the  work of rescue was completed and survivors were landed.at Rimouski and  mustered for roll call. It was only  then when parents failed to find then:  children and husbands their wives  among the survivors-that the full horror of the disaster began to make itself felt. For* a time there was a ray  of- hope that others might be saved  and lauded later, but tlie number of  passengers who reported was pitifully  few.  As Capt. Kendall stated, many of  them had not been able to make their  way on deck and were, therefore, carried down with the ship.  No ocean tradegy in Canada's, his-  tory has cost so many lives and only  two others in modern times, the sinking, of. the Titanic and- the. burning of  the "V"-oll^ri*.o.in^-aiid-A-^jjuDi^e, havft.ex-  I ceeded thelpssiija fcp;da^'sTtjorror.  MOST   DIED   IN BERTHS  When the accident happened it was  a general race for life, and the fact  that the vast majority of the lost are  believed to have died in their berths,  and that the ship sank 15 minutes  after the crash, makes it easy to judge  that there was not much time to look  for* clothing and apparel had to be  .provided at Birnouski for those who  wer;e saved.  Stories of the frightful panic which  broke out in the darkness as the ship  listed and her lights went out; of the  furtile efforts of the crew-to lower- the  boats, which, was made impossible by  the strong list of the ship and despai-  ate struggle which occurred in the  water after the ship gave the last  plunge, are told by survivors, all of-  whom were witnesses of the disaster  which will go down in history as the  most appalling in the history, of navigation in the St. Lawrence river.  A graphic description of the disaster-  by J. E. McWilliams of Father point  says: ;  "All day lo_ng the seaich continued;  at the scene of the collision by the  government nteaineis Lady Evelyn  and Eureka, with tho result that at  nightfall five more" were found, one  woman and four; men,' .still livrng but  unc'*'iiscious..and.250 dead.bodies were^  "'-'��������� '* '   The"'list 'of saved' totals'  Eastern,' Ontario Only .Section JN[ovf"-_AV  Issue���������Agreement Regarding* "*���������' -'  Quebec Is' Reached v * ** '  recovered,  nearly 400.  DR.   GRANT   HERO  The survivors unite in laying such  honors orr the shoulders of Dr. James  F. Grant of Victoria, B. C, a 1913  graduate of McGill,- the ship's doctor.  All praise the manner with which he  calmed the terror-stricken and kept  hope alive in the breasts of those who  felt themselves bereaved of loved ones;  who calmed the ravings of those  whom the shock had, for a time, made  insensible to those human attributes  which inake heroes, who went about  among the rescued, and gave them  treatment, not only for- the physical  ;injuries, but also for- those awful mental shock which had been endured,  TELLS  OF DISASTER.  Dr. Grant's story:  "During the early morning a fog  dropped around us and we proceeded,  slowly. At 1:30 a.ni. we put the pilot  off at Father point. At 1:52 the collier Storstad rarnrnmed the Empress  of Ireland. The vessel's lights had been  sighted by the lookout, who repotted  to Capt. Kendall, who was on the  bridge.  TELLS  HOW  IT OCCURRED  "The captain signaled with three  blasts of the whistle, "i am continuing  my course.' The collier answered, but  what the reply was I have not learned.  Then Capt. Kendall sounded the whistle twice, saying 'I arn stopping.' The  lights of the collier could be seen approaching and the captain of tbe Empress signaled the engine room to reverse and steam full astern.  But the big liner could not avoid  the small ship. She was rammed  amidships in the engine room starboard side. The plates were ripped  open to an enormous length. The  collier then backed off about a mile.  In a few minutes the Empress began  to list to one side. She made an attempt to right herself and then canted  oyer still further to starboard as the  water forced its way in through the  gap in her side. She lurched further  and further and was doomed.  TRIED TO LOWER BOATS  "An attempt was made to lower-  boats on the starboard side. The first  one was, thro\yn clear and the sailors,  in it were thrown out. A boat was  oyertjirrned.

Ottawa,   May   19.���������The    redistribution of fsderal seats  is now settled except the question of what is to be done  with  eastern " Ontario..  It   was first*  prosposed  to  elimate Russell  county,  and the pocket riding of Brockville.,  The former was to be.merged in Pie's-"  cott   and Carleton and the latter'to be  divided between'Leads  and Grenville.  However, there has been s.uch a bitter"  opposition to'the arrangement  that a  compromise was suggested  in Ontario  whereby these two seats would be'left ���������  pretty much as' they are at present.  There is not much to be gained politically by either party.    Russell  county -  is regarded as a safe Liberal constituency'and Brockville is at  present represented by a Conservative.  The question will be settled definitely in a day'or two and the redistribution bill may be expected to go  to the house quickly.  The rest of Ontario.has been agreed  upon and it is understood the riding  of North York Has been completed by  allowing Stoutfville to remain in the  riding.  The Quebec situation has been cleared up. There the difficulties were with  the rural constituencies of Brome and,  Missisquoi and the urban constituency of St. Antoine, although there  was some doubt of the composition of  Maisonneuve.  Of course, all arrangements are tentative until the redistribution committee decides to report the bill and there  may be changes at the last moment.

C, and niece of Mis. E. M.  Daly, was united in marriage  lo Benjamin Wallace Knowles of Hedley, B.  C.    The scene of the ceremony was at  the Presbyterian Church, thu Rev. A.  H. Cameron officiating.    At 4 o'clock  the bridal  procession   was formed   to  "Lohengrin" inusic and was preceeded  up the aisle  by  the  ushers,   William  and Maurice   Daly,    cousins  of   the  bride.    The bridesmaid, Miss Florence  Daly,  wore a charming   costume of  white satin with an overdress of blue.  The bride,  who  was given  away by  her brother,  John  C.   Corrigan,   was  charming in a wedding gown of white  duchesse satin trimmed, with chiffon  and pearl passemterip  with a  veil  of  tulle caught  up  by wreath of orange  blossoms.    She carried a beautiful bouquet of bride  roses.    Mr. George Allison, acted as best  man.    Mrs. Thomas  Daly  who. had  come from   Spokane  specially to attend the ceremony, presided  at  the  organ  and   during  the  signing of the register Mrs.  -.^���������Htfjpr.^jl^,  sang  "Oh Promise Me".  J. A. Brown  After the  held at the  Mrs.   Dalv.  ceremony a reception was  "Willows",  the  home of  which has also been  the homo   of the  bride since childhood.    About   sixty  guests    congratulated   the bride and  groom.    All  of the beautiful  presents  that had  been  received  were  tastely  displayed in the drawing room.    After  a merry repast and felicitous speeches  by R". L. C.iwstorr  and Rev.   Cameron  the bride and groom left amid showers  of confetti,  cheers, and  good  wishes  for a  honeymoon  trip.    On  their- return, Mr. and Mrs. Knowles will reside  in Hedley where Mr. Knowles holds a  position with the Daly Reduction Co.

The sympathy of the whole country  will go out to those bereaved and also  to the ollicials of the, Canadian Pacific railway who, while ,in no way tn  blame, for the accident, will feel .a  greater or lesser amount of responsibility for the great loss of life which  has occurred to passengers on one of  the company's steamers. -   -  CANADA MOURNS  The wieck  of the  Canadian  Pacific  Railway  company's steamer Empress  of Ireland with a  loss of life  approximating one thousand men, women and  children conies as a profound shock to  .  the people  of  Canada,  from the  Atlantic  to the  Pacific.    The death roll  is second  only lo  that of the Titanic  .a little over two years ago, when 1,503  -people lost Iheir lives.  These two accidents show how little  real  progiess  has been   made  toward  '���������;"absolute  safety at   sea.    The Titanic  was   regarded   at the   time    of   her  launching  as  the last word  in  naval  construction.    She was  annonced  as  ~a vi"ss<'l Unit, was-  unsinknble, yet on  ��������� her maiden voyage  across the  Atlantic she. -went-down,   as  the  result of  striking an iceberg, with most of those  .on  board.    The   Empress  of  Ireland  , . was  regarded as, little behind the Titanic in the  matter of safely, but,  as  a  result of being  rainnied  by the col-  jier Storstad,  early Friday   morning  she sank  to the bottom  in  less  than  15  minutes'  time,  carrying with her  most of her cargo of human beings.  From   despatches it would  appear-  that the ill-fated vessel was in no way  - to    blame.      She    had     taken     the  '.. precaution of stopping her engines on  ' account of the  fog  and  %vas  lying-to  '; when strueic amidships and practically  cut in two.    How much blame attaches  to the Storstad  and  her officers  for  -the awful   loss   of life   investigation  will show, but the captain of that vessel  is in  an    unenviable   position    in  the public eve  at the present moment  as a result of the occurrence.  The loss of one  life  is perhaps  only  of  importance,   to   the   individuals   lo  whom that life was  the  light  of  the  world.    But  the  loss   of  a   thousand  human beings massed together on one  ship   sends    a    tremor    through  tin-  whole,     happy,     laughing,     careless  world.    It is loss of  life in the   aggregate which  always  appals.    A -catastrophe  such   as   this   seems   to   bring  people suddenly face to face with realities.    For a moment they glimpse the  beyond, for a moment   they ary awed,  then  once  more  they  turn   to    their  tasks and forget.    But among  them  are some who can never forget. Never  forget  the  last   goodbye  or   Hie last  glimpse of a face which was   unutterably dear   to  them.   To   those    who  have suffered  thus  through   the loss  .of the  Empress of Ireland words  can  bring no comfort.  The disaster and its sorrows will be  brought home to the people of western Canada by reason of the, large  number from this section of the country who had sailed on the Empress  on their way to the old country on  business or on pleasure  bent.    From  Western Canada is oil mad at present. A month ago men who were  tlii'ii supposed to be hard pressed fur-  ready cash now have an abundance of  money to hand over to the first oil  promoter who happens to cross their  path. A few of these speculators may  gain wealth by their ventuie, but a  vast majoiity���������and the majority is  always composed of people who can  not afford to part with money in this  manner���������will only add to their collection, of worthless stock certificates.  The excitement is a forcible reminder  that gambling is an inheritent trait of  humane nature, and that most people  play the game until they go broke.  A few years ago the mining "wildcatter"' was in vogue.. He was succeeded by the "'wild cat" real estate  peddler. These gentleman made dupes  of the public. The oil promoter's are  doing the identical thing. Oil is valuable, and it may become more valuable as thu years roll on; but before  you invest in oil stock find out if the  company has any oil lands, where located, and if the officers and promoters  are men of integrity.

I believed  the chief officer lost his life when  these- boats- capapulted'-through'/the  crowd, -t**-' ���������"  "There was no disorderliness among  the cibwd. The captain and other of  fleers remained on the bridge until the  vessel sank. It was just 17 minutes  from   the time she. was rammed until  '* -'   ��������� '  she sank beneath the surface.  ���������'Comparatively only a few were en-;  abled to gain the life boats and practically all were forced out in their  night attire, into the icy water. Several hundred clung to the ship until  she sank, holding to the rail until the  vessel canted over so far- that it was  necessary to climb over the rail and  staiid on the plates of the side. Then,  as she keeled over further, they slid  down into the water as though they  were walking down a sandy beach  into the water to bathe. Then there  were several hundred souls swimming  around in the water, calling for help,  shrieking as they felt themselves being  carried under, and uttering strange,  weird moans of terror undisguised.  CVlKiOT LUCK  RATS IX TRAP  ���������'The lifeboats'' of the Storstad were  launched and ca in e rapidly to the rescue. Not one went back that was not  well loaded. About five, of the Empress' boats got away. The catastrophe was so sudden that scores never left their bunks. They were caught  there like rats' in a trap. Added to  this was the fact that the passengers  had been on 'the ship only a day and  were not yet familiar with their surroundings. In the confusion and the  semi-panic many could not find their  way to the decks and only a few knew  how to reach the boat deck. This Was  largely responsible for the terrible toll  of death.  "The survivors were taken on board  the Storstad and the Lady Evelyn,  which was siimniom..". by wireless.  There everything possible was done  for them. In at least five cases, however, tlie shock and exposure was too  severe. Forty women perished after  they reached tlie Storstad. In each  case I was called and womendied before  anything could be done. rl he  last spark of energy had been exhausted. One other- woman died just  as she was being taken ashore."

C.  fili-plPPPPPP  Let the Buyer Beware  F^OJR. centuries the principle of "Let the Buyer Beware"  ���������"Caveat Emptor"���������ruled the world of business.  In fact, it was, not a principle:���������but' rather a lack of  principle���������yet it held sway everywhere until a decade  or'jtwp ago.  When a merchant quoted a price, he made it high  enough to stand almost unlimited whittling, and yet be  ���������p^ntable^tq him. When he spoke of quality, his fingers  were crossed, and you were..not expected to believe him  ���������^unless ypAf wanted to very badly;  im .jmg was. a, haggler-sunless you  we're a.hardened.haggler, you/came out  second best itvevery deal. "Caveat  Enjiptpr"���������it, was up\ to you.

Confidence has elimin-  atep, the haggle.  You see business confidence is a  good; deal like capital, in that it accumulates like savings. The grocery-  consumer's confidence in a town will  ��������� i f.\ r:. .  be on deposit chiefly with a few capable  square grocers; and dry-goods confidence, jev/elry confidence, and-so forth/  are massed in the. same way. -  The retail merchant doesn't lock  this confidence in his safe. He. deposits it in turn with the wholesaler,  who passes it on to the manufacturer.  And the manufacturer, to make the  circle complete, must give confidence  . to the consumer.  The manufacturer with goods: to,  sell must draw, upon all these."reserves.,  of confidence. He must demonstrate,  his own fairness in dealing, his in-*  tegri.ty in maintaining quality, his  willingness to put principle before  profit.  Advertising is the means through which the manufacturer makes this demonstration to you.  Advertising has given personality to commodities, so  that you now recognize your "friends" among soap, tea,  or collars, as readily as you recognize your human acquaintances.  ���������Advertising fathered the "money back" principle, and  has made buying a pleasure instead of a duel of wits.  mad^ buying safe to entrust to a child.  Advice regarding your advertising, problems is available through  any recognized Canadian advertising ageticy, or through the  Secretary of the Canadian Press Association, Room 503  Lumsden Bldg,, Toronto.
