Tne Evolution Of An Empire        (
 . o      ���    '
Tho forthcoming lrnporial Conference inLoudon.'to bc "attended- by
members, of the Uritish Government and the Premiers of all the'self-governing Dominions of ��� tlio Empire is attracting more 'widespread inleres;t than
any of tho proceeding Conferences of a like character, with thu possible*
exception of Uie one held* during lhe war, Some ..writers and public men
seem to-think tliat notable changes in the relationships now existing bet-ween
Great Britain'and the Dominions' will -result but there is little ground 011
..which to -base sutih belief. .
������, ftSinco the secession of the American colonies and the American Revolutionary War of '11*50 years ago, tlie. changing relationship between Great
Britain and her overseas possessions has been one of evolution, not revolution.
. Great changes have taken place, it is true, but the process has been so gradual
and all effected so peacefully, that they were hardly noticed at the time.
Perhaps the most significant change of aii took place when the overseas British
TDominipns became members, of the League of Nations on terms of equality
with the Motherland and other nations."
But -this gradual ��� development of a more autonomous ancl Independent
���status has In no sense resulted in any weakening of. the Imperial tie.nor in Ihe
solidarity of the Empire. Tlie effect lias rather been to add strength* to. the
individual units and to the union embracing them all. The term "Empire"
as applied to the British Empire is, in ��act, a misnomer. Rather the-phrase
favored and so frequently used by His Majesty, King GeorgeV., more correctly
'���* describes what is commonly referred to as the British Empire,namely, the
British" Commonwealth of Free Nations. W'* ���  "���-'
_ .There ls nothing at'all'in common between the British* Empire and old.
��� Roman,?French,. Russian, German and Atistro-Hungarian Empires. The fact
that these old empires have passed, away while the British Commonwealth of
Free  Nations  continues united  and* stronger  than  ever' only   serves ' to
'emphasize the*difference.��� ��� ���-.>,
Evolutionary,.not'revolutionary,..tendencies are still at work throughout
���the British connexion, and it is to be expected thut the approaching Imperial
.Conference will assist to clarify the atmosphere In regard to some matters.
India is steadily moving forward along the path- to increasing self-government, and Great Britain Is not only willing but anxious to enlarge.the powers
of the people of India just as rapidly as the people become capable, of wisely
*oexercising those powers.. The history of Iudia.will be lavgel} a. duplication of
the; evolution which has taken "place in other'parts of the Empire.    ���
In South Africa'.the people .'appear, to be somewhat concerned about the
���'Hag, and there is a considerable body of opinion in f^vor of a distinctive
national flag for South Africa other than the Union Jack.   But. those, who/are
most insistent for such an emblem .nevertheless disavow auy desire for or
-' intenlion of a severance' of-the tie ..which bind.3 them to Britain-and the other
tBritish Dominions,     ',*.���-- ..*.. **:  -   ���":".        ���'*   "      ���, ���
Canada is moving in the direction of appointing its own Minister to the
' United States with a view to haying; matters pertaining to Canada aud {he-
United States'dealt, with directly by the -two -countries concerned 'rather than
through the'intermediary of tho British Ambassador and the Government in
'  London.   But, here again, there is not the slightest wish nor intention of
severing or'even weakening one tiny strand of tin. tie binding.'Canada to the
'���'Empire. '*. 7- "'"'���'". W       '  ' '.'''" *'.*.'"���"������.  ''*'*'.*.
Among people in aU the. Overseas Dominions the view is -entertained ;by
many that tho present procedure of carrying appeals, from the Supreme Courts
of the Dominions to ths Judicial Committee of tlio Privy-..Council*.in. London
���' might'well be abandoned, and the overseas Courts made supreme in fact.as
well as in name, thus saving lengthy delays and huge expense, in obtaining
final judicial decisions. Butadvocates of this change are'.amongst .'.the. most
loyal of British subjects. W .7   .-.'.-'.
In tho evolutionary process already referred to, one of-the-most significant
���changes has been in treaty making powers. ������Formerly, and not so-many years
ago, all treaties had to be negotiated and signed by; the British Government;
although they might'liavo reference solely to one particular Dominion.-Furthermore, all treaties made by Great "Britain were bind>iug oii .all the Dominions
with-or* without their consent! ' Now, however, Canada'makes trade" treaties
Canadian ministers. . If Canada and the United Slates: desire to make an
agreement regarding -fisheries, or some boundary matter, the two countries do
^0 and the resultant treaty is-signed by Cantidian ministers.    "     "'.   .--.
Furthermore, the British' Government, no longer makes treaties witli
foreign countries affecting the Dominions''"without iirst consulting 'them and
such treaties aro submitted to the Canadian Parliament for their approval and
adherence.        ���.;'.*      W' ���-,'-.  "- -: .,������-" ���''���:
""', Kipling well describes present Empire relationships: "Daughter am I in
my Mother's.house, but mistress in my own." The'British family tie-holds,:
invisible, almostintangible, silken ;ih .texture;.but-strong and lasting-as steel;
Changing times call for other changes, in "customs, methods, procedures, but
the family remains intact, sympathetic, co-operative, loyal.and affectionate,
working for a common aim, proud of each other's achievements, united by a
common bond, and joyfully yielding allegiance to one sovereign. Thus does tha
British Empire grow, prosper and triumph,    ;... . W

Resources,   Opinion   of   British
CapitdiiGt        7
Sir'Alfred Mond, British -.capitalist
and internationalist, who has invested heavily in Canada, brings up a
challenging message when' lie states
that Canada's greatest need abroad la
publicity, lie tells of leading and supposedly well-informed Brilish iinan-
ciors who do not even know some of
our greatest mines ;i< names. ^
Our mineral revenues are growing
each ..yoar but aro still a small pan
of our total annual production. Dairying alone produces much more than all
our mines. To bring the yearly mineral production to two, three or four
limes tlie present figures will require
ihe investment of millions, yes, a billion dollars is needed. This money
we have not at. home for investment;
Vi���*> must get it from^abroad. If Britain
and i'luj'opc havo the money to invest,
we wan Ho offer them the opportunity.
But if must, be offered. Wc must take
it lo them. 1
Money may well bo invested by tho
provinces in making our mineral resources known.���Financial Pos'l.

'fhe salvaging of-allied and Turkish
ships sunk during the Great War has
begun with tho raising ot thc French

The Italian Salvaging Company, at

have'agreed to shurfc the profits of thc
undertaking on a ilfty-flfty basis except for the provision that any ships or
guns found in a sufficiently good condition to be .repaired and used will
become the solo property of the Turkish Government. _
French opinion hero is indignant
over what ItL, terms Turkish desecration of French un'der-soa tombs. The
raising of the Bouve, in which 600
French sailors and officers wont down
to death in the battle of the Dardan-
olios, has provoked some bitterness
on the part of the_French.
The British attitude toward the raising of the English ships sunk iu the
Dardanelles, of which one of the most
notable was the'Irresistible,-has not'
made itself felt-here.

Japanese Pride
Of Caste
Poor Family Refuses Son Permission
to Marry Girl of Higher Social Order
Japanese    pride    of    caste    whicli
caused a poor family to refuse to permit a son to marry a girl of the highest social order has created an unusual
romantic   situation     arousing    much
sympathy throughout Japan.
General  Barou   Tanalca  Is  om>  of
a the  yeallhiest  and  most  prominent
Japanese. He i.-J head of the powerlul
Seiyukai party and, at any time, may
be tho Premier of Japan.   Lieutenant
,Maj.ayul;i Kozowa comes from a poor
and lowly family,   but -a   family   of
pride in its class.
In his extreme youth he was put out
' to service and became one of the servants "of  Baron  Tanaka.  There  the
..youngster grew up with the beautiful
\'aoko,. daughter of the Barou.
Prom the^first - Baron. Tanaka conceived a liking for the boy and soon
he yfa.s almost like one of the family,
becoming a constant playmate of ,the
young daughter. The sBaron decided
to give the youth an education, so put
him through school,__and later, through
-his great influence in the Army, ob-
- tained his entrance to the Military
Academy. In the meantime, it was
apparent to all that Ya'eko and Kozawa
we're .madly iu love with each other.
Baron ,Tanaka- did not object, vile
liked the young man. and ho wanted
his daughter to be happy. -But there
was a matter of family.
-The family is everything in Japan,
and "the individual nothing. It is thc
family that arranges and permits marriages. Their consent "Is- absolutely
-necessary for a union. Baron Tanaka
thought he" saw a way to make
Kozawa the equal'of hi.j daughter. He
would adopt him according to a common Japanese custom and make him
his son and _ heir.
'" The proposal of adoption was made
" to Kozawa's family and an executive
session was<fif-ld to decide the-matter.
1 Jt lasted several days and finally Bar
on Tanaka   wag   informed   that   the
adoption and proposed .marriage could
not be;  that the Kozawa family/'al-
"though.'poor and lowly, still had "Its
pride which would not permit one of.
its members*to marry out of his cia^sT
even though that'class was very much

Men Good Window Shoppers
Experiment   Indicates   They   Stop  to
Look Oftener Than Wome.n Do
Men spend more time window shopping thau women do, it was revealed
by experiments conducted In 125th
street, New York, by the Columbia
University School of Business, accoiding to Dr. II. K. Nixon..
The experiments indicated that
"men and women showed about the
same interest .as measured by 'Iho
tendency to turn the head in passing,
but-more men than women actually
-Jt was found that .advertisements in
black and white received just as'much
attention as those iu colors..
It also was found that a woman
looking in the window did not decoy
as many observers as a man. A man
and a woman looking in the window at
the samo -time attracted" more attention to the window than either a man
or a woman.alone.   -
A Defense Of Gossip
Britishers Not So' Slow
More Men Straight Than The-,
Police Do ,
I am possibly the only man living
who has spoken a good word for gossip, wliich kevips more men straight
than do policemen.
A thief does not fear gossip, bul a
halfway respectable ma'n does, and
heeds it. Gossip is iTtremendous power in .regulating tlie better institutions.
Ask a banker: gossip may "ruin him
over night.
We get the (ruth in gossip; rarely
in newspapers, speeches, and serr%ons.
Gossip is vicious, but it is also free
and candid; by weeding out'the palpable exaggerations, we get thu truth
about every .situation; ,
'Go:=sip abuses ever\ thing more than
it deserves, but finally .sei lies on llie
real facts; idealism praises everything
more than it desereves and never
roaches (he truth.
It's a pity the Iajv does not hear of
evil acts as soon a.s" the neighbors, but
it does not, and wo nW entitled to
protection while ihe slow-moving Law-
is getting out a warrant and summoning witnesses; most of -\��|om will not
testify as candidly in court as, they do
ou lho_ streets.
This protection wc get from gossip.
If gossip declares up and down the
street today that a certain jnan war-
last night seen entering a certain
house whore he liad po business, hc
will keep away from there tonight.
Finally the gossip will get around to
tho sheriff, and. if of ..sufficiently sen-
ous'nalure, he will investigate tomorrow.

"   The Speed of Hurricanes
Bulletin   Explains   Why   Accounts  of
Velocity Vary
Many people have been puzzled how
to reconcile the apparently widely
divergent .accounts of the velocity oi
the wind during the'West Indian hurricane that struck the southeastern
coast of Floiida last week-end. The\
read in oue place of winds moving at
tho,rate of 120 miles an hour, and in
another that the centre of the hurricane passed over the country at lhc
late of forty mile's an hour.' A bulletin
on hurricanes issued by the National
Geography Society of " the United
States not only explains the peculiarities ol"hurricanes, bul provides answers to various queslions that occur
tb the interested layman.
"Hurricanes,", the society's statement says, "are not winds than drive
straight ahead. They are swirls of
the cyclonic type. These swirling
storm centres move relatively slowly
across land and sea, sometimes at no
greater speed than eight or. ten miles
an hour. But they suck air towards
them from all sides at terrifllc
speeds, up to a hundred or more miles
ari hour." The.se West Indian hurricanes, anticipated every year on the
Gulf coast, are-probably'as old as the
Atlantic ocean and-ihc North American continent. The first storm of tho
kind on record "devastated parts of
