" ;'  James .Murdoch  London, MayS.���������The latest estimate  of lives lost as a result of the torpedoing of the Cunard liner Lusitania hy a  German submarine off the Irish coast  yesterday is 1198." It is believed that  almost all if not all the survivors have  been brought ashore, and there is little  hope of recovering any other passengers alive.   .  ' ,-  The1. Press Bureau is informed by the  Admiralty that no more reports regarding the Lusitania have been received-arid that the number of survivors already given may be regarded as  approximately correct.  Inquiries are being made "along tho  coast,; but there is little hope of news  of further survivors.  ��������� . United States Consul Frost at  Queenstown places the total survivors  of the Lusitania at 615. Probably 1200  bodies have.rrot been recovered.  A'ESSEL NOT AIt"M"J"D.  , The British Government today made  tire following announcement:  "The statement appearing in some  newspapers that the Lusitnrii.-i was  armed is wholly false."  ���������' Ini'tiest proceedings were formally  'ope-ned at Kinsale this afternoon in  order- to facilitate the - transfer to  Queenstown of a number of bodies  lying  there.  One: of the bodies was that of R.  Matthews. Beside it lies the body of  a'beautiful woman who is believed  to liiiyc been his wife. A photograph  found on tire body of Mis. Matthews  contains the- words: "First prize-la-  dies'-photo, won by Mis. Matthews."  . M.-iny of the .survivors report that  they'lost large sums of money, most  of which was deposited in the ship's,  safe.  A dispatch to the "Illustrated ller-  -���������ild'' frerin Fishguarel says a Great  Western steamer arrived in Fishguard  from Ireland Sa tin clay afternoon with  100 bodies of victims of the Lusitania.  -     CHEW   BEHAVED WELL.  A dispatch from Queenstown tothe  Cential News says:  "There is much confusion in tlie various stories of the launching of the  boats, but it is ag.eed that the Lusi-  tauia's crew upheld the tradition of  heroism in the Riitish mercantile m.-i-  The population of Ireland increased  hist year- by 5,000, the first annual  gain in nianv years.  The'Newfoundland sea fishery this  year is said to be ,thc poorest in the  annals'of the industry.  SEA WALL COMPLETED  After Nearly Twenty Years' Work Concrete Sea Wall at San Francisco  Is    Finished.  Swiss charitable societies have been  notified by Germany that between  250,000 and" 300,000 French families, expelled from the nortlfern departments  of France in the possession of Germany  because of lack eif food, will pass  through Switzerland during the month  of May. ' *  The French War Office officially denies the German charge that churches  and other public buildings in Paris and  Troyes were being used for- inilitary  purposes. It savs "it would be difficult  to find a more striking example of  tho false allegations contained daily in  German communications."  Although it is generally supposed  that the war- in Europe-has absolutely  stopped the flow of immigration from  across the Atlantic ter Canada, returns  for Maich show that a thousand immigrants from across the sea entered  tlie Dominion ,in that period. These  new arrivals practically all came to  Westetn   Canada.  San Francisco, May 8.���������After nearly  20 years' work the concrete sea wall  along the entire San Francisco waterfront, from Fisherman's wharf to the  China Basin was completed today, according to announcement made by  the State Board of Harbor Coinmis-  sioners. The engineers .have been  working from both ends of the waterfront arid today sections 9-A and 9B,  between Folsom and Harrison streets,  were joined.  With the completion of the sea wall,  1110 board of Harbor Commissioners assumed control of the entire section  about China Basin.

About one-half the. insurance upon the cargo was taken by  ���������local'underwriters, and the' rest by  Lloyds.  The cargo rate, influenced by the  theory that the'fast liner was too  speedy to be caught by a torpedo, was  one per- cent., much lower than the  customary transatlantic rate at this  time.  The Lusitania carried 250 bags of  mail.    She had no specie aboard.  On her manifest the largest single  item was listed as "Cartridges and  ammunition, -1,200 cases, $152,-100.00."  The cartridges and ammunition cases  were consigned to London.  Mr. J. A. Schubeit went to Penticton on Friday.  The Hedley Lumber Company are  getting ready for their drive.

Eejually at variance are the reports  of operations in the western field.  Germany claims to have made a substantial advance at Ypres anil several  other points. Paris asserts, that during the" last, fortnight the Germans  have gained no serious ail vantage and  have been repulsed in many places,  sulTei ing great loss. The fact seems to  be that Germany at Ypies just missed  a significant victory, wliich woulel  have had great strategical importance,  and that the Allies at Neuve Chapelle  had almost precisely the same experience. ���������News-Advertiser.  ntm  -..,,..or   ������������������ t  Eggs for   Hatching  from eight different  breeds, the best of  their kind in the val-  . ley.

IS  MORTGAGE SALE  JAPAN'S OPPORTUNITY  It may he well that the Japanese de-  nianils   upon   China do   not alfect the  status of Gieat Britain.    Biitain as an  ally of Japan  would probably "fare no  worse in China under a virtual Japanese protectorate than with China independent.  .If Japan's action had been  attempted in times of European peace  we may be sure  that  it  would either  have been resisted by the other powers, eir have been accepted by them as  a   signal   for a  general   partition  of  China into spheres  of influence.    Bub  Japan   would  never  have:  made such  demands supported by an ultimatum  if the  European powers' had not been  engaged in a. war involving  their own  existence. Britain may fairly conclude  that she has enoue;b on her hands anil  will not intervene to save the constitutional integrity of China.   She has not  guaranteed   to   China   fi ee-clom   from  Japanese supervision and has no special  duty in the case.    Bub when the next  British White-hook' on   this 'affair is  publisher! it  will  doubtless  be found  that Sir Edward Grey has deprecated  the'Japanese demand and the peremptory wayin which  it was  pressed.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  The Minister of Justice: denies absolutely the statement that he said  eib Sherbrooke that the Governor-General had declined to sign an order dissolving Parliament.. This statement  appeared in a dispatch to the Liberal  organ at Vancouver.  The quidnuncs are seeking to discover some spe-cial significance in the  absence of the King of Italy from the  unveiling of the statue of Garibaldi.  To oirr way of tlrirrking Italy and her  future action may just as well be left  out of consideration for the present,  for the data are entirely too meagre to  justify anyone in forming an opinion.  GERMAN  CLAIMS  Experience has shown that the claims  of great victories made in Berlin and  echoed from Vienna are always exaggerations. It is nob difficult to explain  this. The German and Austrian people  have been tremendously disappointed in the results of the war so far.  Nothing has gone as they expected,  and that the military authorities  should seek to stiffen public opinion  by exaggerated reports of success is  very natural. lb is also desirable from  the Teutonic point of view to influence  opinion in neutral countries, especially in those wliich are regarded as  likely to take up arms on behalf of  the Allies.  Under these circumstances, while we  print the claims made from the enemy  capitals, we think readers generally  understand that bhey are to be accepted only under very great reserve. On  their face the British and French reports seem to be accurate, and after  events confirm them. Broadly speaking, reports from Petrograd are also  corroborated in the same way, and  bhe statements emanating from the  Russian generalissimo always prove  to be accurate.���������Colonist.  The people of. Vancouver Ciby are  not permitted to boast too much over-  South Vancouver on the score of disorderly conduct of semie of the members of the neighboring municipal government. We have our own' exhibitions. Newspaper accounts state that  within a few days two Vancouver  aldermen   had been engaged in alter-  c  cations with private persons on' the  steps or precincts of the City Hall.aud  have struck tire m'en with whom they  quarrelled, or who quarrelled with  them. Probably they would both  plead provocation, but so can many  of the men who are arrested on the  streets for disorderly conduct.

MAY 13, 1915
Published U nder the Direction of the Dominion Parks Branch, Ottawa.
Tbe Dominion Parks 'Branch lias
recently issued three publications
which are noteworthy on account of
the ."ittrnctive form in which they me
Iiriiited and tbe interesting matter
they contain. They are: "Uhissiue-d
Guide to Fish and Their H-abital,
Rocky Mountains Park"; "Tbe Nak-
iinu Oaves"; and "Glaciers nl* tbe
Rockii'.s and Selkirks."
The Fish Guide i-> written foi tbe
sportsmen and naturalist rather than
scientist, it is a complication eif firsthand information for anglers by one
who has fished in all the piincipal
waters eif the Park. It lakes up each
locality, describes the best means of
reaching it, the dilfei-e-nt varieties of
fi-.li which can be secured, and the
best bait lo use. The game fish of
the Rockies include five species of
iroiit, one which���the Lake Mimic-
wanka trout���has been known to run
as high as -10 lbs. The Grayling, the
Dolly Varden and ihe Out Throat
treiutaic found in many of the lakes
and streams of the- Paik and a lit-h
hatchery has recently been established
at Banff, for tbe puspose of re-stocking
those which have- become depleted.
The second pamphlet gives an interesting account, ol* the formation,
character and discovery of the famous Nakinui Caves near Glacier, 13. O.
These interesting natural cm insitics
are .-upposed to be about-10,000 years
old anel consist of a serie*- of nncl--r-
groimel chambers, some of them fifty
feet high anel more than two hundred feet long, hollowed out p.utly
liy volcanic action, and opening into
each other ab dilVeient levels. ' The
walls eif the cave- are . covered, with
strange flore'sccnt limestone formations, and they re-ve-i berate to the roar
of undergiound ten rents. The elilVe-i-
ent chainbeis have; been given niiiiie.-.
suggestive of their character: "The
Pit." ""The Marble Way." -The Ballroom," ������The Art Gallery," "Tlie Judgment Hall,"' "The "White Grotto." "The
I3iiel.il Chamber." etc., and whe.i they
���ire lighted with electricity anel proper
giiai cL and handi ,-iiis have been placed
on the- staiis and platform.-:, the y
shc-uld be among the most intei e-siing
sights in the- Uoekic-s for tourists'.

Coh-niau is a scientist with the imagination of a poet, and he has.wxitten
the story of the; formation and "work
of the Canadian' glaciers with all his
well known literary, chiu-in.;.' ���The-
pamphlet should prove not only a
groat help to the -student .eif glacial
phenomena who visits the parks, liiib
it should inspire many Oaiiaeliaus-.witli
a desiie to see the wonelei-fiil.'inonntain
.se-enery of their own country for themselves, "to put on,"-sis Dr. Coleman
says, "warm, strong clothes and bob-
nailed shoes and to (ill one's lungs with
mountain air in a screititlik- up to the
siiowlields'ln see how the- glacial ma-

that paid him the cuui-jliineut, as it
had.done to Darwin two years earlier.
When Dai-wih was. given tlio;.- degree
Huxley let him have no false idea as
to the honor bestowed. "Canon Pusey,"
he declared, "has been making inquiry

riding himself, but walked by the side
of the roa'd as he held tho lines. So.as
to have his right hand always ready
he ���walked on tho left side, and consequently the horse on the left side came
to be known as the "ne;ir" horse, and
the one on the right side was called tlie
"off" horse. In'that manner the terms
"near horse" and "off horse" became
general find slill pertain to horses
hitched as a team.
