R.  THE CIVIL AUTHORITY  Shall Wc Maintain or Repudiate It? Important "Motu Proprio."  Rome, Nov. 1911.���������"Tlio last number of the 'Acta Apostolicae Seclis' contains  an important'Motu Propria'of the Holy Father regarding the censures inflicted  upon those who bring- ecclesiastics before the civil courts. The Holy Father's pronouncement reads as follows: * Since in thescv evil times it has been the custom to  pay so little heed to ecclesiastical immunity, that not only Clerics and Priests but  even Bishops ancl Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church are brought before the lay  tribunals, the situation absolutely requires of Us that We restrain by severity of the  penalty those whom the gravity'of the offence does not deter fronvthis sacriligious  action. Wherefore We * Proprio Motu' lay down and decree that any private person, layman or cleric, male or female, who, without permission of the ecclesiastical  authority, summons before a lay court any ecclesiastical, persons whomsoever, either in eriininaloor civil cases, and compels them to appear there publicly, will incur excommunication 'latae sententiae,' specially reserved to the Roman .Pontiff. And  what is laid down in those letters Wq, will to be valid and ratified all things to the  contrarv notwithstanding'.''  The above is clipped from the official organ of the Roman Hierarchy in Canada in its issue of Nov. 30, 1911, and is a dispatch from Rome. In brief it sets forth  that any "layman or cleric, male or female" who dares to summons before a civil or  criminal court auv official of the Roman Church, shall be excommunicated and re-  ceive the curse of the church.  It also lays down the principle that ecclesiastical law is superior to civil law,  that a cleric is immune from prosecution in the civil courts, that a cleric must not be  subject to the criminal law, that he is so superior to the civil law of the land that it is  an insult to even summons him to it.  This is dangerous teaching and should not be allowed to pass without adverse  criticism. We have no desire to interfere in the right of private opinion in religious  matters and avc count among our most intimate friends members of the church  which is responsible for the above utterance, but we do protest' against the public  and official declaration that members of that organization shall not recognise the supreme authority of the law of the land Such sentiments are unworthy of any loyal  subject.  national ports  In discussing the estimates Mr. Monk, the Minister of Public "Worlis, gave expression to some  remarks which should be greeted with general approval by the public generally. He; stated that  in his opinion the Government should adopt a policy of development of all our great ports under,,  a, definite system of transportation, and -he further stated that it would likely cost in the neighborhood of $100,000,000.00. 6  This is a great undertaking and will require careful and exhaustive investigation and will call  for the best talent available. Mr. Monk should reeeive the hearty approval and support of his  colleagli5s and the public. He will meet great difficulties and much discouragement, but the work  is one which will result in an impetus to transportation and shipping greater than that of any  other course.  DEBATE ON SPEECH  The debate on the Speech from the Throne has been marked chiefly by the bitter personal  attacks made by the opposition members on the ministry and by a tiresome re-hash of the old worn-  out reciprocity agreements.  Not a member of the opposition attempted to discuss tlie important questions in the Speech ;  from tbe Throne, but wasted tlie time of the House discussing the supposed personal differences  existing between members of the Cahinet,ai.<] a vain endeavor to rouse the racial feelings of the  members from different sections of the Dominion.  One of the questions presented was the matter of good roads to be assisted by the Dominion  Government. This is an eminently good move as a good highway is one qf the best colonizing influences that can operate in any country. Another point was the one of terminal elevators. .This  is a distinct step in advance in modern legislation and ensures to the farmer fair treatment in the  matter of the transportation and storage of grain.  The fact that the Government did not bring down a naval policy has caused much bitter  criticism by the opposition. It is generally understood that the naval policy of the late Government will be discarded altogether and that Mr. Borden will consult with the Imperial authorities  and formulate a policy which will be permanent and satisfactory to all concerned. , ,,  The objection of the people of Quebec ,to a direct contribution has been that we have no representation, and it.is generally expected that the new policy will provide for contribution with representation which would be acceptable to all parties.  MAYORAL CAMPAIGN  Mayor Takes Credit'to Himself For Success of Work He Opposed.  The mayoral campaign again finds His Worship Mayor Taylor in the field, in spite of his undertaking given to his late colleague. Aid. Ramsay, that he would not be a candidate. According  to the Mayor he deserves great credit for the work accomplished by the council of the past year.  As a matter of fact much of the success of the past year has been accomplished in spite of the  .Mayor, rather than with his assistance and in some cases in direct opposition to his attack.        , '  Let us examine^a few cases. Last summer a scheme of Joint Sewerage System was introduced  by Aid. Stevens and a joint meeting of the representatives of the various municipalities was called,  at which meeting His Worship did his best to block and obstruct the proposed scheme, but in spite  of his opposition the committee agreed to proceed, with the result that today, Mr. R. S. Lea, the  consulting engineer, is completing his plans,in regard to the same. This has meant a great,deal'  of hard work and the acquiring of much detail and many surveys, whicii has been submitted to  him and is now being whipped into shape. This will give to Vancouver the best system of sewerage  of any city on the continent. All this has been done, not only without his���������the Mayor's���������assistance, but on frequent occasions in direct opposition to him. He sought to block aud discourage  the scheme because he had not initiated it and on every opportunity he would, in a subtle manner, seek to upset the plans of the committee.  Again Ilis Worship iiow says, "We will throw up both hands if Deadman's Island lease is  cancelled .by the Dominion authorities." He sees the revulsion of public opinion against his policy  of giving the city's rights to Ludgate without a struggle and seeks to use the opportunity to his  political advantage by advocating municipal docks. What has he to say of his attitude last summer when he URGED THE CITY COUNCIL TO PAY MR. KINMAN $400,000.00 OF THE CITY'S  MONEY FOR THAT WUICII HE NOW ACKNOWLEDGES BELONGS TO THE CITY? Is this  not practically an admission that he, as" First Magistrate, was unable to cope with the situationt  Has the condition changed in any respect, except, perhaps in this that the |H>Utical.friendsvof Mayor.  'ii,ylor and Mr. Kinman are no longer in control at Ottawa and it is not in his power to influence  them to do that which is contrary to the general wish of the people. No one will question the unalterable opposition of the people to this lease and yet His Worship has most assiduously advocated Kinman's interest as against the city's.  If he believed Kinman and Ludgate to be right why is he now saying hurrah when the suggestion is made to abrogate their so-called rights? Or, if he believes that the city is right, why did  he not support the city's claims?  Is this man a safe first magistrate?' Is he the man to guide the destinies of Vancouver? The  people must answer this question.  [NEW 8T. MARY'8 HALI.

Then followed, at 8 o'clock, the opening of St. Mary's Hall by his lordship,  the speeches, and sacred concert given  in connection therewith.  ���������   '������������������������������������ :   ��������� ��������� ��������� ������������������.-���������a, v .

It is designed to  promote the social side of: the  church's life in this rapidly growing  suburb, and was built, equipped, and  presented as a free gift by the vicar,  Bev. Owen Bulkeley,; and. his wife.  "As your bishop I can say from the  bottom of my heart that I am proud  of you and the work you have done,  and I consider that in appointing your  vicar to the oversight of this parish,  you have a man who by his experience  in the old country, by his zeal as  evinced in what has been,accomplished in a bare six months, and by his  scholarly attainments, is a distinct  gain to the rankB of the clergy in.this  diocese," said his lordship, addressing  a crowded hall. He appealed to all to  strive for unity of purpose and action, to sink petty differences for the  common good, and to go on growing.  Archdeacon  Pentreath told of the  beginning of things religious in the  [city, of how he was the fifth clergyman of the Church of England here  when he arrived fourteen years ago���������  now there are eighteen���������and of how  one of the most fascinating things in  the West was that one might be at  these beginnings and see their results  also.  Rev. Owen Bulkeley touched on the  - y - v -  hope of unity which he said is shared  by all the churches/and said that the  belief in "One Lord, One Faith, One  Baptism," was almost ^uniyersal^  Catholic; and that while the Church  of England in Canada held fast by the  Episcopacy, the Apostolical Succession, the three-fold Orders of the Ministry, and abated no iota of doctrine.  There was nothing but cordiality in its  relations to Nonconformity, and a desire for closer union with Christianity  at large. Hence drifting to reminiscence, he closed with some excellent  stories admirably told?  Trie" sacred concert which followed  was due to the kindness of Mr. Harold D. Campbell and the ladies and  gentlemen associated with him, Miss  Wilkie. Miss Trousdale, Mr. Earle, Mr.  H. B. Williamson, Mr. S. J. Montgomery, and the accompanist, Mr. J.  Johnstone.

Electric run,  some say, very slowly; but even at  the. spaed they do move they are  proving to" be very dangerouB. The  latter part of last week as the Fraser  Avenue car was rounding the bend at  the junction of Westminster road and  Fraser avenue, a car of the White  Star line came also and struck the  Fraser car on the side, tilting it to a  very critical angle and giving the passengers a severe shockrl he damage  was slight.  Then a day later the Fraser Avenue  car proved to be the bloodthirsty villain The victim this time proving to  be a poor milk wagon. The car hit  the wagon broadside and "rushed the  can," milk, man and horses, scattering them and breaking bottles. Where  the fault lies It is impossible at present to say. As when the passengers  became aware of the accident, the  deed was done. Both events occurred  in three days.   When is the next?  This makes the "might-have-been"  loom large. The participants may be  the smashed parts next time. Then  who will settle?  THE MAYORAL POSITION  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  Were the citizens of   Vancouver   asked what  cirid of a Mayor is needed this coming year, there  fould and would be only one answer, if at the  present time no name were before the    public.  [h������ wording of the answer might be different,  irying according to the vocabularies and the  Educational advantages of those answering.  He should be a strong, just, wise, experienced,  liecessful ..business man. possessed of the highest  leals, and of a pre-eminently practical turn  of  lind.   He should be a man representing the imperialistic spirit of the overwhelming majority of  (lanadians and of the citizens of Vancouver.  ���������In business hisTfirst impulses should be towards  jeonomy and not to extravagance, leading to an  (nwise habit of borrowing, without a clear vision  [s to the future., Further, lie''should stand always  pr ALL the people, and not be in the habit of  Bering to any particular class, aud often to the  host extreme and selfish class,known,to the coun-  serf. for praise or money, of any big railway corporation. And no man could possibly be fitted  for such a responsible position, who runs riot in  supporting bomb-throwers and anarchists, irrespective of the dire results looming up against  British law aud order.

For years T have been watching the growth of  anarchy and mob-law in the civilized world. I  may be wrong, but am of opinion that I am pretty  nearly correct in the following tracing of the true  cause of this growing and calamitous tendency to  despise all restraining law and to break the Sabbath day. When I'was .in my teens, the manifested  - beginnings-of. the "true cause had their origin in  "Canada. I presume the same-.kind of vile seed-  sowing took place in the United States about the  same time. The Roman Catholic Church, in Canada, demanded Separate Schools, and in Ontario  gained their end. The demand was based cn religious grounds. The Church did not wish to have  their Roniau Catholic children taught out of the  Scriptures by Protestant teachers. Nearly all the  teachers in Ontario were Protestants, and the  School-law required the public schools to be  opened and closed with Bible reading and prayer.  This did not suit the priests and higher authorities in the Roman church. In the end they got  Separate Schools, in-which there has been little  or no Bible reading for nearly two generations.  But a second element of Roman Catholic influence, along this line, is the "following: After, as  well as before, the establishment of separate  schools there was kept up au agitation against religious teaching in the public schools, even  though in the separate schools the burden of the  work was, and is, of a religious character.  jThere were provinces where the separate schools  were net established, and therefore Protestants  and Roman Catholic chuldren had to go to the  same publie schools.  And further, the High and Grammar' Schools'  were attended by children of both religions. Thus  it came about that the Hierarchy of Rome kept  agitating against religious teaching in, these public  institutions until, in the end, the entire school  system became religiouless and godless, as it is  today.;. The boys and girls, largely of Canada,  have grown up studying the burs of science, and  history of-the nations, without being.led.up to the  Great LaVgiver. in the material, moral and intellectual world; aud without being taught'the mostL  helpful and reliable history ever published. Any  mythological history of ancient Greece, or Rome,  or Persia, or of the Scythians. Goths. Saracens,  and others, was and is good enough to be put into  the school books, but the Bible History is excluded. u  Now what was going on in Canada was being  duplicated in the United States.' And.'.of- late,  one ean see a similar process advancing in Great  Britain, caused by" the saniepeople. by the-same  means, and for the.same end.  Hence two generations of godless and.religion-  less education have produced .a mass of anarchists, bomb-throwers. .Sabbath-despisers. and lawbreakers. No wonder Roosevelt has sounded the  alarm for the United States. It is time for Canadians to give ear to the voice of the" offspring of  their .madness and folly.���������Anarchy, divorce, libertinism, disregard for the sacredness. of life and  property, and reverence for God!  The question conies to one as he considers these'  curreilt events and tendencies, i' Why does the  Ch'arcii of Rome so largely refuse to permit the  free and open study of the Old and New Testaments? Is it true that she does stand against the  'simple teaching of the Holy Scriptures'? My opinion is that she is iin enemy of this Book, and that  the terrible state of.

I represent a constituency which comprises some 150,000, good, loyal Canadian citizens, and I think consequently I may be allowed to take part in  this debate. The subject of the cabinet appointees, or the colleagues  which the Prime Minister has chosen  to act with him, seems to have taken  precedence over every other subject.  I think that is a matter for regret, because I understand that we are sent  here for the purpose of discussing the  larger questions relating to the affairs and administration of this Dominion, and not for the purpose ol  making personal attacks upon individuals. I want to congratulate, the  hon. member who has just spoken  (Mr. Verville) upon one or two points  which he mentioned, and which 1  think prove conclusively the wisdom  of the position taken by the Liberal-  Conservative party of Canada ,on reciprocity. He spent considerable time  criticising the trusts, and he argued  in favor of reciprocity as a means of  preventing the inroads that the trusts  are making upon the consumers of  this country. In my opinion, to open  the markets of Canada freely to the  ingress of the trusts of the United  States would certainly not benefit the  consumers of this country, according  to his own argument. He also made  reference to ttte protection of labor,  and in this I am heartily in accord  with him. But I was surprised to  hear the criticisms he made, being,  as he is, a supporter of the right, hon.  gentleman v who leads the opposition,  and.who so lately led the government  of this country for fifteen years. I am  reminded that there is on the statute  books of Canada an Alien Labor Act,  which was especially designed for the  laboring men of this country. Now,  what did we find a short time ago on  the Pacific coast of Canada We found  that the authorities of the Dominion,  under the leadership of the right hon.  gentleman, were deliberately violating the Alien Labor Act, acting in  direct contravention to its provisions.  They have been for over year conniving with certain individuals for the  importation of foreign labor into  Canada in direct contravention of that  Act. The government officials at Victoria and at Seattle, where foreigners  take the boat for British Columbia  ports, were instructed thiat they could  admit foreigners into Canada in direct  contravention of that. Act. Now, Sir,  how the hon. gentleman who claims  to be the special representative of the  laboring people of Canada, can be a  supporter of a government, of an administration, which has perpetrated a  crime of that kind, is beyond my comprehension. ,The hon. gentleman said  that he felt convinced that the reciprocity agreement had not been well  explained, to the people of Canada.  Well, all I can say is that he could not  have attended any Conservative meetings during the last campaign, because .so far as I could learn from  the press, and according to my own.  personal-observatlonsyin-=everyi^coni  stituency tWe Liberal-Conservative  party sought to give a'full and complete explanation of this important  measure. In the amendment proposed by the leader of the opposition  we find this clause:  "We respectfully submit to your  Royal Highness that it is a fundamental principle of constitutional government that the advisers of the  Crown shall be heartily in accord on  all important questions of' public pot-  icy."  Now, hon. gentlemen opposite are  making strong objection because they  imagine that there is a difference of  opinion between members of the present governmnt on what should be Canada's naval policy. Now can we not  offer a similar criticism on the personnel of the members of the opposition? Can you imagine a more direct contradiction of opinion, for instance, than that which exists between the hon. member for Red Deer  (Mr. Clark), and the right hon. gentleman who leads , the opposition"?  The hon. member for Red Deer is a  hearty, hale, bluff John Bull, an ultra-  imperialist, according to his own  statement; a man who is an avowed  free-trader; and yet he sits side "by  side on the same political bench with  the refined and cultured leader of the  opposition, who is a.n, avowed protectionist, whose administration has ever  pursiied a protectionist policy, a gentleman who  introduced  that famous  it would result in some good to the  country. In the first place, we have  an allusion to the subject of good  roads. ' This has been a subject of  some ridicule on the part of our hon.  friends opposite. ', The hon. member  for St. John city and county (Mr.  Pugsley), the late Minister of Public  Works, says-that this is a matter  that will present insuperable difficulties: ��������� -7-: ���������������������������-���������:  He could not understand how they  were going to make a division of these  funds which would be satisfactory to  everybody, Sir, from his standpoint,  and from the standpoint of the late  administration, I can readily understand how it would be difficult to  make a division of the spoils, but,  under the administration that we have  at the present time and with the application of the intelligence of the  members of the whole House, I believe that this question can be solved  amicably and justly to.all concerned;  I consider it a question of the most  supreme importance. There is no  greater colonizing influence than good  roads. T believe that a highway  through the0 country is of more value  to the settling up of the community  than a railway or a tram line. I believe that the Dominion and provincial governments should co-operate in  the extension pf the highways  throughout the country. I am here to  say this, that according to the records  of our own province, the provincial  government of British Columbia are  spending this year $3,000,000 on the  extension. of the highways and this  has been hailed by the people as a  highly commendable piece of adminis-  trationjl^eiwelcgmed the assistance  of the Dominion government in extending the highways through our pro-j  vince. There is an illustration of the  value of this policy that I might give  the House. For instance, there is the  Alberta-British - Columbia highway.  This is; a highway that we hope to  join up. At present I understand that  you can take an automobile or a carriage and drive practically all the Way  from Winnipeg right through to the  Rocky Mountains. We wish to extend our highways eastward and join  them up so as to make a highway  clean across the continent. Som hon.  gentleman the other day rather ridiculed this idea, but to my mind, and I  repeat it here, it is a highly commendable piece of administration to  extend the highways of the country.  There is another point upon which 1  wish to dwell for a moment and that  is as to. the question of immigration.  The hon. member for Red Deer (Mr.  Clark), in his eloquent and witty address, which I enjoyed very much,  made reference to this subject. By  the way, I might just say that the  hon. member for Red Deer visited  British Columbia .'and preached his  free trade policy'and we returned  seven solid, Conservative members.  He is still persistent in believing that  he is on the right track. However, I  have no quarrel with the hon. gentleman, he is a gentleman for whom  I have <L great deal of respect, and I  listened with great interest to his ex-  resolution into the late Imperial Cou- j position of the theory of fre trade not-  late government, and why? Simply  because there were facts contained  in those Sessional Papers that the  public would like to know and which  would have been very prejudicial to  the late-administration. I have been  through these Sessional Papers. I am  thoroughly acquainted with the situation in British Columbia connected  with these Chinese frauds, and I.have  supplemented iny investigations there  with a perusal' of these papers:- What  is the situation? The Chinese are admitted into the' Dominion of Canada;  according to statute under a $500 head  tax. There are certain exceptions.  Merchants, Chinese .who have returned to China and come back within one  year, and the wives an^ children of  merchants iii:'the country are -admitted free. We found that there was.a  syndicate or company organized, with  the connivance' and knowledge of  officials of the late administration,  who were working together and bringing in, by a system of frauds, hundreds of Chinese without paying the  head tax. This,was accomplished by  this method. A number of Chinamen  would-come in on a boat and the interpreter who would question them,  being a member of the syndicate,  would give answers to the English  officials which were positively false  in every detail.. The result was that  these men would be passed free. This  is the administration which an hon.  elude transportation, which lives ~T$y  agriculture, and the agricultural im-  gentleman spoke of a moment ago as  being in favor of the policy of the  labor element in this country. I  want to draw your attention to a few  reference in. connection with the investigation which was made by Mr.  Justice Murphy just to substantiate  my statement.   He said:  "Ample opportunity has existed at  Vancouver for illegal entry-of Chinese  iiito Canada."  Then he goes on:  , "A system of direct fraud ;*o secure  illegal entry of Chinese into Canada  as merchants and exempts has flourished at Vancouver."  Then he goes on further and recommends that:  "A digest be forwarded to t he Minister of Justibe for advice re prosecution of Yip On and Yip Sue, interpreters."'  How could these things flourish unless they were connived St hy the  administration? They were known in  Vancouver- by those who were the  official employees of the government.  The interpreters were working hand  in hand with those who were benefiting by those frauds. Just to illustrate that, I want to tell you what  happened a few weeks ago. .Two  Chinamen came Into my office and offered me $500 if I would Becure them  the appaintment - of interpreter, telling me that it was an exceedingly  valuable office. That "indicates the  way in which these interpreters secured/'their "positions formerly and  the methods that were being pursued  by this department;-in Vancouver.  The immigration policy of the Dominion government during the past  fifteen years has bequeathed to this  present government a racial problem  in the south fades into insignificance.  T he Pacific coast is flooded with  Asiatics.whti have entered the country by fraud.r   7     .  I want to come now to the Japanese situation. I again refer to the  iactJhat^honj.membere^gpposUe^ave  claimed that we have an immigration  policy Which has been; satisfactory  and for which we should congratulate  ourselves, according to the hon. member for Red Deer (Mr. Clark). Teh  years ago there were a thousand Japanese on the Pacific coast; to-day, I  have not been ��������� ablej to secure the  exact figures, but. I venture Jro say  that there are upwards of 25,000 Jai>  anese on the Pacific coast. Ten years  ago I do riot, think there was a single  Japanese engaged in the fishing business, or there were very few; to-day  there are 10,500 Japanese engaged in  the fishing business. Ten years ago  that business was in the hands of  white men; to-day it is entirely in the  hands of Japanese or almost so.  These are facts which, I think, speak  for themselves. How has this come  about? The provincial government of  British Columbia repeatedly passed  Acts seeking to stop this immigration  (Continued on Page 3)  ' y Also large variety of  POULTRY SUPPLIES  Fresh stock of  PRATT'S  POUUTRY FOOD  OUR BEST FLOUR  F.T.VERN0N  Flour and Feed  Broadway and Westminster Road  /PHONE: Fairmont 186  Prompt Delivery  Satisfaction Guaranteed.  \*  J  Piano Tuning  Expert Repair Work.  \ Factory Experience  Best References  W.

THE WESTERN CALL.  m\j*\m i  mm   ��������� ''!���������  Stevens' Speech  (Continued from Page2)  of Asiatics into Canada. They were  continuously passed, and as often as  they were passed tbey vere disallowed by the Dominion government.  They; were disallowed, probably legally and properly, but the policy that  was followed was against tha advice  of the imperial authorities. I refer  you to the Sessional Papers of 1898  and ,1900, should any hon. member  desire to verify my statements. There  he can find reference after reference,  telegram after telegram, letter1 after  leter, from Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,  speaking for the imperial authorities,  advising the Dominion parliament to  pass an Act along the lines of the  Natal Act. This was refused by the  Dominion government, the Acts of the  government were disallowed and the  result is that to-day you have a race  problem on the Pacific coast in comparison with which I repeat, the negro problem of the south fades into  insignificance, because you not only  bave the presence of the Asiatics on  the coast and In your country, hut  you also are face to face with the  fact that they are protected by their  own countries which "are highly civilized and powerful nations. This is a  problem that must be taken up and  dealt with toy the.Dominion House.  Under this, new administration 1  am looking forward to some measure  which will assist us to keep British  Columbia ,as a white man's country,  and -not as a Held to be exploited by  Asiatics. Reference is made in the  speech from the Throne to a proposed  reform in the terminal elevator System, and to the development of agri-  <:ulture, and our friends opposite rath-  ���������er ridiculed  these proposals.    -  Mr. PI7GSL.EY, My hon. friend is  mistaken as to that.   I was not in the  ��������� House when any member on this side  ridiculed the idea of the government  controlling    terminal    elevators.      I  I spoke of the elevators myself, but I  did not criticise the policy of the  government.  Mr. STEVENS. The hon. member  may not have been in the House, but  I am distinctly under the impression-  Mr. PUGSLEY.   Mention any mem-  llier who criticised that policy.  k Mr. STEVENS. I am distinctly under the impression, and reference to  -Hansard' will I think prove my statement, that the general tone of all the  members on the other side was to  ridicule the proposals in the speech  from the Throne.  Mr. PUGSLEY.   Not at all.  Mr. STEVENS. The proposal of  this government with regard to terminal elevators is mos) progressive  and advanced legislation, and any  man who has the welfare of thia Dominion at heart must say that such  legislation is in the interests of the  masses of the people of Canada. We  were told by the right hon. gentleman  (Sir Wilfrid Laurier) the other evening that 66 per cent of our people  lived by agriculture, and yet, so far  as I have been able to find out, $750,-  000 onlyt was the amount that the  Liberal government could afford to  spend last year for the promotion of  agriculture. Our agricultural industry  comprises 49 per cent of the total  trade of the Dominion, and if you in-  plemeht industry, which is also dependent on it, then, you can easily say  that 75 per cent of the total industry  of Canada is agricultural. Sixty-six  per cent of our people live directly  by agricultural pursuits, and although  our revenue last year was about $115,-  000,000, we spent less than 1 per cent  of it on the fostering of this great industry. Such a condition as that is  absurd, and I submit that the time  has arrived when the Federal government should spend a much larger sum  for the development of agriculture:  Let me give you a few facts. France,  which is a very small country compared with Canada, spends annually  $9,000,000 in the interests of agriculture; Austria spends annually nine  millions, Hungary nine and a half, millions; the' little empire of Japan,  which you could bury in one of our  inland gulfs. on the Pacific coast,  spends three and a: half millions; and  the, United States spends - annually ten  millions on agriculture; and yet,-notwithstanding that Canada is essentially a new agricultural country requiring great assistance for its development, the late government could  only afford a sum of less than one million dollars last year on agriculture.  The proposal of the new government,  as I understand it, is to provide facilities for the establishment of agricultural colleges and experimental farms  so that immigrants coming to this  country, not experienced in agriculture, may obtain that experience here  which will enable them to settle on  the land and become prosperous and  successful farmers. The immigration  policy of the late administration  tended to bring.to our shores, hordes  from southern France, tp encourage  the Japanese and the Chinese to flood  this country, and to, as far as possi  ble, provide $5 per head for the coffers  of the North Atlantic Trading Company and other such Institutions.  Hardly a city in this Dominion but  has to face tbe problem of what' to do  with these southern Europeans. Ontario has -had to pass an Act to prevent these people carrying concealed  weapons and using them to the danger of life, in the slums of our cities  where they congregate. Instead of  bringing immigrants to this country  who would settle on the farms, the  policy of the late government was to  bring to our cities hordes of these undesirables. What we want now is a  policy which will enable immigrants  when they arrive in Canada to become acquainted with our customs so  that they may be useful citizens of  Canada and successful settlers of our  vacant farm lands; The hon. gentleman from Maisonneuve (Mr. Verville)  spoke about trusts, and0 as I understand it the condition which prevails  in the Northwest in the matter of our  terminal elevators is tbat there is  danger of certain companies corralling, the elevator business there;-and  so the government proposes to regulate these elevators in such a manner as to give the farmers���������whom we  may classify as the backbone of the;  citizenship of the country���������facilities  to store their grain under favorable,  and equitable conditions, and to market it to advantage, so that tbey may  secure a fair profit as the result of  their toil and industry. That is legislation which ought to receive the endorsement of every member in the  House. True, there are problems in  connection with the scheme; but never-has there been a departure from tbe  ordinary routine tbat did not present"  problems. 7 The. details must be worked out, and7if hon. gentlemen on the  other side" are interested In the development of the country, instead of  casting ridicule upon the project they  can, by offering; judicious criticism;  assist the government;in carrying it  to a successful issue. Another thing  touched upon in the speech from the  Throne was the appointment of a tariff commission, and I submit that ttns  proposal offers an eminently intelligent solution for many of our present  difficulties. I repudiate the assertion  of hon. gentlemen on the other *>-_<������  that the party now in power represents the trusts. The truth is that we  represent the whole people of Canada  and not any particular class, and so,  the tariff commission will be able to  hear from all classes of the community and to decide what is best to  be done for the general w elfare of the  Dominion. When the two gentlemen  went from Ottawa to Washington last  year���������and I say this in spite bf the  statement that Washington came "to  Ottawa���������in connection with the reciprocity agreement, they met the tariff  experts of the United States who had  at their fingers' ends facts and statistics to sustain their' side of the case.  I submit, Sir, that a minister of the  Crown, with the'multiplicity of duties  he has to perform, and the tremendous  pressure of business on him, could not  be expected to be an expert on such a  question.  You cannot expect any human being  who has such a diversity of duties to  be an expert on any one of them. So  that when these gentlemen went tc  Washington they met the expert tariff  commission of the (United" States, by  whom, I am credibly informed, $300,000  was spent in gathering facts for the  purposes of this agreement. How, I  ask how, in the name of common-sense  could any man who is not an expert,  I care not how intelligent he may be,  meet men of this calibre, who are intimately informed on this subject, and  expect to make an agreement that was  entirely equitable? The7thing was impossible. What we expect from the announcement in the speech from the  throne is that the present administration will organize here a tariff commission similar to what they have in  the IJnited States, non-political in its  complexion. & far'as I am concerned,' I would oppose any sciieme of this  kind with a political stripe. The commission must be a scientific, non-political organization, and 'with such an organization I can see that we shall have  ah equitable tariff schedule riii tbe- fu--  ttiire. 7: rv--";v;w7.' ;vy7r:1 ������������������;":--:yy ���������-���������-  'Now, I wish to deal for a moment  with the fisheries question. I have intimated already that the fisheries on  the Pacific coast are almost exclusively in the hands of Japanese. This is a  matter of very great significance to  this House. It is difficult for hon.  gentlemen living in the eastern part of  the Dominion, with many local problems pressing upon them for/solution  every day, to become interested in  what is happening at the other extremity of the country.' But this is  more than a local problem for .Uritish  Columbia; it is a problem which affects the whole Dominion of Canada,  and I will briefly show how. These  Japanese are merely ordinary fishermen, but to a large extent they are reservists of the Japanese navy. They  are experts in navigation. They have  draughted complete charts-of every  hole and corner of the Pacific Coast,  4^-  and have photographs of .tha. whole  coastline. I'venture, to say there are  in .the archives at Tokio complete  charts ^of our navigable 'waters. To  illustrate that,' I may-state that a few  weeks'ago one of our coasting boats  going on its usual run wanted to call  ai a certain inlet. Some of these inlets run up into the land for 30 or 40  or 50 miles. The captain had no chart,  in fact there'is no chart of that'particular inlet; ��������� and having looked up  the chart-he had, he said, "I cannot  take the risk. When ihe was faced  with this difficulty, a Japanese fisherman produced from his pocket a complete and perfect chart of that inlet,  and the captain was able to sail up  many miles by that chart. The problem on the Pacific Coast in this regard  is a serious one, and merits the attention of this House. Moreover, the  method followed up to the present  time of granting fishing licenses on  the Pacific Coast is something nefarious. Licenses have been- granted' to  individuals whose, only recommendation was that they were political heelers, and;these licenses have been farm-  ed~out to Japanese and others. Fishing licenses which have been secured  for $50 have been sold to Japanese for  from $1000: ter $15007  While speaking on this subject, 1  want to make a practical suggestion  which I hope will be taken into consideration by the administration. On  the Labrador coast there are a large  number of fishermen who would make  excellent settlers and citizens, on the  Pacific Coast. At present these fishermen are disfranchised, ^because 'there  is -no representative ������n this House from  the Labrador (coasi^ and lam informed  that Or.' Grenfel, who has done a'great  deal for the people of that part of tbe  country, is interested in the-transfer  of some" of these fishermen to the Pacific Coast. I believe it Is up to the  Dominion administration to arrange  its immigration laws in such a way as  to conserve, and protect the resources  of this country so that they will not  pass into the hands of aliens, and I  believe that the transfer of some of  these Labrador fishermen to the Pacific Coast would be a splendid solution  of the difficulty, because it would give  us expert fishermen and relieve us  from the necessity of employing Japanese.  Mr. LEMIEUX. Has the number of  Japanese fishermen materially increased during the last two or three years?  Mr. STEVENS.   Yes, most material.  i ly.   The hon. member' is referring, I  have no doubt, to his little jaunt to  Japan a few years ago;  but, while I  ''7y| il  presume the hon. member did his best  and his intentions were all right; that  arrangement does not meet the case In  any sense. What we in British Columbia contend ls that there should < be  passed by the Dominion authorities, as  was suggested by Joseph chamberlain  himself, an act similar' tb the Natal  Act; but the Dominion government of  tbat time absolutely refused to pass  such an act. I go further. When the '  treaty with Japan was under negotiation, the late administration were asked by the Imperial authorities if they  wanted to come In as a party without  reservation, or if they wanted to'reserve their rights with regard to immigration, and they told the Imperial  authorities that they would come In  without any reservation whatever. The  result Is that if we attempt to interfere with Japanese Immigration in anr  way.- we are met with the difficulty of  an objection from the Emperor of Japan. It is not an easy question' to  solve, but the late administration neglected the question entirely, instead of  attempting to deal with it It ls a question that requires large men to deal  with, but7 if it is ^not grappled with.'  you are going to be faced with a race  problem that you will have to reckon  with in the near future.  Now. I want to proceed to the navy  question. It has been stated by some  hon. members that in the recent campaign prominence was not' given' to  the navy question, while other hon.  members stated that it was the sole,  question discussed. As far as British  Columbia is concerned, this naval  question is of vital Importance. If yon  will permit me,, I will read again the  clause' referring to that in the proposed amendment of the right hon. leader '  of the opposition:  "That with regard to that policy, as  well as to the whole question of naval  defence, there is ln the present cabinet a flagrant conflict of opinion."  On the Pacific Coast there is no conflict of opinion, but there is an opinion that is directly antagonistic to the  policy of the late administration; What  have we got today? The Atlantic  squadron the other day went on a political junketing tour in express opposition to the orders of the naval authorities, and the result was that the  "Niobe" was piled upon a rock. The  Pacific squadron went to Comox harbor and dropped anchor, and had not  men enough to raise the anchor. That  is the kind of Canadian'navy you have  today/ Now, was it the intention ot  the late administration to man their  navy with Japan&e? because that ls  .A ^  (Continued on Page 4)  7*  i  1 *  It  !>���������������,;��������� >,���������:���������. * ,..{4 #.;..������������������������;������������������������;������������������������!���������������fr ���������* 1H1' *������* *4  1*  2  $  13500  Horse  Power  Turbine  The Spirit of the Times Demands  RELIABLE -8AFE- EGONOMTG AE- PDWE R  Stave Lake Pow6r is Dependable and Economical  By harnessing the Great Stave River we have made it possible to generate 100,000 horse power of electrical energy at our Stave Falls Plant,  the Biggest Electrical Feat in Western Canada.  4 100,000 Horse  Power  Or half as much again as the combined connectedcload in steam and electricity in Vancouver today, a fact of great significance to local industries.

Seymour747*  m loo Blk., Cr. Hastings & Abbott St.  Vancouver, B.C.  Stevens' Speech  (Continued from Page 3)  what.it. apparently was leading to.  The whole, fishing industry on the Pacific Coast, on allien you must depend for men" to man your merchant  marine and navy, was in the hands oL  .Japanese, and no one who has looked  into the question carefully could fail  to see what -result would follow, from  the naval policy of the late, administration. That policy was simply suicidal in every sense of the term, not  only so far as the poor "Niobe"was  concerned, but,from beginning to end.  I haVe 'formed a judgment on the navy  question and have no hesitation in  stating it. We have been told that  there is a conflict of opinion among  members of the cabinet on this question, but we ought to-be sufficiently  broad-minded to give members of the  cabinet the right to their own opinions  with regard to any public policy, but  if there be any difference it has simply been concerning1 the direful effects  bound to follow the policy of the late  government.  This qiiestion is one which should be  approaehed as a business proposition  and not with a view of utilizing it so  as to throw out sops of patronage to  particular parts of the country. What  -J the condition at present? We have  a certain trade on tlie high seas, and  it is just as essential; that we should  have protection to our trade on the.  high seas as police protection in the.  cities. The question is not one of simply bolstering up imperial ideas. It  is a commercial one more than any-  y'Lng else. We are proud to boast that  the British Empire controls over half  the carrying trade of the whole world.  We are proud to boast of our supremacy of the high seas. Well, in my opinion what is required is an imperial  board of defence on which the overseas dominions should be: given representation. I am convinced that a board  of that kind would remove the last  vestige of objection in this country to  a direct contribution to a navy under  the control of the imperial authorities.  ] But I may be asked how we are going  to decide the proportion which each  of the overseas dominions should contribute. Well, as I have said; the proposition is a business one. There is a  certain amount of traffic throughout  the empire. Let us, for the sake ot  argument, say tbat the gross amount  of traffic throughout the empire amounts to one billion dollars and- that  the portion contributed by the Dominion amounts to $100,000,000. In my  view the proportion which the Dominion should contribute to the support of  the navy would be pro rata to the proportion which her traffic bears to that  ���������t* m^^^^^^*mAmmm*09m9k*\m.  ,m*^^m*f*A%%. ^%  (9  ������  1%  <>|y  i������  4  9  4*  HI  ������  't"t!'l"I"I"I"|'     'I' '1' * * * ** * * ************* * * * 4)  Alluminum Kettle  In Use Fifteen  Years���������GooQ Yet  When you buy goods  that last like that, the  first cost is not a matter  of   much   consideration.

If such a course as I have  indicated were pursued I.-believa.it  would result in removing the objections which at present obtain against  our contributing to-the maintenance of  an imperial navy. A good many people  are opposed to any such contribution  unless we have,representation in the  councils of the nation.' I myself am  a firm believer, in the. autonomy of  this Dominion, and Avhile I believe in  a direct, contribution,,I am equally  convinced that we should have our say  regarding how that contribution should  be spent. If then, we be given imperial representation, I see no objection  to our contributing to an imperial .navy. For 100 years Canada has enjoyed  the protection of the imperial navy,  and has not given a cent towards tlie  cost of that protection. That, I consider, is a disgrace to Canada. I consider it a disgrace to this country that  we should allow the taxpayers of Britain to be burdened with the wholp  responsibility of the heavy tax required to protect our overseas trade. The  time, has come when we should bear  our just proportion to protect our own  trade. On the basis I have pointed  out and on being given direct representation in the councils of the empire, I believe the last vestige of objection to a naval policy would be removed.  I have not much more to add, but I  wish-to refer to a remark made:by the  hon. member for Kings, Nova Scotia  (Mr. Foster), the baby member of this  House.   Let me congratulate" him on  the excellent speech he made on the  address, but when he alluded to the  unlimited, resources   of Nova  Scotia,  while I have no fault to find with my  hon. friend's enthusiasm regarding his  own native province, I Und I am at a  loss how to describe the resources of  the province I have the honor to represent.   We have in that province a  coast line of 7,000 miles and an area  of some 238,000,000 acres.   When the  late Sir John Macdonald aiid his noble  colleague proposed to span this continent with two bands of steel, their  policy was ridiculed by the Liberal  party of that day.  In fact, Sir Richard  Cartwright described British Columbia  as a sea of mountains and declared  that the railway: would not pay for its  axle-grease.     Well,   we   have 7 great  mountain peaks, of which rwe are justly proud.    "Those peaks are so high  that I do not believe the mentality of  those engaged   in this debate could  surmount   them*  and   certainly they  tower  high  above  the, mentality   of  those who criticize the statesmen-like  policy of Sir John Macdonald and his  colleagues which! has made this country  what it is today7   But between  those great mountain peaks we have  fertile valleys in which you could place  Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and, I  believe,  the  province  of  Ontario  aB  well.   Let me now draw attention to  a few of our resources. ;Our output of  coal last year was 2,000,000 tons and  our output of other minerals amounted to some $24,500,060, almost one-half  the total production   of minerals sin  Canada.   Our salmon fisheries canned  oyer 1,000,000 cases of salmon.   I am  not drawing attention to these facts in  a boastful manner,: but simply to show  :^al^ri^h2Cqlunibia;is a jfreat pro-  *4H^**<^*^H������M~:������<*^^������M'%~:~:~M' *.>^~><������*.:..m.^<.^^4.^^4Mj..>i:.h^j..>^  ���������I**i*,i,*i*  Free!  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  .*  *  *  . a  *  *  >*  *  *  *  *  Free!  &  Saturday" &  To every BOY that makes a purchase of 25c we  will give FREE ONE HUMMING TOP; and  to every GIRL making a purchase of 25c, we  will give FREE.

I  might point out further that in Vancouver alone during the last ten years  we have contributed to the Doniinion  treasury some $35,000,000 in customs  and postal returns, and this year the  amount is likely to reach $8,000,000.  But what I wish particularly to emphasize is the fact that we ought to  turn our attention to the development  of this Dominion regardless of race,  religious and creed' differences. What  do J care about anybody's views on  trans-substantiation or any other religious doctrine?   Though bom in the  old country, I am a Canadian in sentiment, my first love is Canada, and I  believe the time has come when we  should  bury  these  petty  differences,  and work in common for the development of our common country.    The  other day I had a conversation with  one of my ^colleagues from the province of Quebec who told me he had  property in the West, and had travelled considerably, throughout that country and had thus obtained an idea of  the  vast  heritage  belonging  to  this  Dominion, and he came to this House  prepared   to   deal  with   every  public  question  from the  standpoint of the  country as a whole, and not from any  sectional point of view.   I agree with  my  hon.   friend.     I  believe   that  we  should for ever banish these petty differences of creed and race and unite]  with one object, namely, the development of this great Dominion of "ours  in the interests of all classes and all  ?

Editor Western Call,  7 City: ';���������.*���������'  Sir,���������From time to time I have seen  in your columns (particularly, 1 think,  in letters contributed by Prof. Odium)  references to a "Popish party" in the  ranks ot the ministry oi the Church of  England. I do not pretend to be as  well read or as intimately informed  on such matters as Prof. Odium undoubtedly- is. - At-the same time, - my  path of life has thrown me repeatedly  into .close touch with many of the  church leaders; and I. must confess  that I have seen nothing of the spirit  to which he so frequently alludes.' It  is true our High Church, men do pattern some of their practices, particularly that of the confessional, after  those of the Church of Rome; but  while the form is Romish, the mere  fact that they adopt and follow it is  not sufficient evidence to" sustain the  conclusion that the spirit is equally  Romish. Does not Prof. Odium do an  injustice to worthy men, good citizens,  and true supporters of a free Protestant religion, when he attacks the  High Church group? Would it not be  a fairer thing for him, occupying as he  does a semi-public position as a critic  of current events, to investigate before condemning? If he has convincing evidence, he should produce tt.  Otherwise he should retract.

Although a ^good many years have  passed since I had my first experience of life on board a troopship and  since then the old "troopers" have  been replaced by the more modern  "hired transports," the various incidents and experiences of my initial  experience are fresh in nay memory  today. '  It was a lovely arisp, sunshiny morning in December, when we paraded  with our kit-bags, foiled coatsi and  haversacks on the barrack square for  inspection by the Colonel of the Depot at Gosport, prior to our embarkation at Portsmouth.  The parting cheers of our comrades  left behind; the strains of the band  playing "Auld Lang Syne," the girls  and the waving handkerchiefs en  route: all come back to me as I write.  Arriving at the Jetty we were halted and after being told otr to "messes" by the embarkation officers, eventually got on board and proceeded to  extricate ourselves fronu our equipment and began to adapt ourselves to  the places assigned us which was to  be our home for about 26 days. ��������� .

We were not long discovering  that we were destined to be more than  mere idle passengers on the voyage  and altho many of the "billets?'; assigned us were at the moment somewhat of a mystery we were soon able  to grasp the meaning of the various  little amusements (?)   provided by an  all  wise  government  for preventing  the time   hanging   heavily   on   our  hands': - swabbing and holystoning the  decks���������cleaning brass work, sweeping  decks.    Sentry go and watches combining to.relieve the monotony. .It was  a common sight to see a bunch of  "Tommies" sitting barefooted oh deck  (as boots were discarded after leaving  port),  playing  "house"  or, ,^ards  just then the. bugler would sound two  "G's" oi\ three' "G's" as. the oqcasion  demanded, then the "School" would be  suddenly broken up by the hasty exit  of  some of the  party  recalled  to  a  sense   of  their  duty   as   "swabbes",  sweepers,'.' etc., muttering, meanwhile  something that was barely a grayer  as  their  comrades  chaffed   them   as  they departed.  On the first day out from Portsmouth  and when the.snow white cliffs: of the  old land had faded from, our view���������  the cliffs that so-many on board were  destined never to see again. 01d7Nep-  tune became playful and many of rBit-  ain's warriors were rendered hors-de-  combat faster than all the combined  European armies could -manage to do  ^-^mariynoythose^who^faiicied^them'  selves immune being'amongst the first  to succumb and give up all they had as  a tribiite, "'. V".;  A rather amusing incident in regard  to this occurred oh board���������searching  amongst the kit bags on deck for his  own, one of the boys came across an  Artillery forage'cap of the did "pillbox", pattern, making a grab at it he  found something attached to the chin  strap which.he discovered to be a  gunner of his own battery who had  been missing from the mess table for  a day or two and had lain down  amongst the bags being too sick to  move, it was a long time before he  heard the last of it.  After leaving the English channel  ajttd reaching the much dreaded Bay  of Biscay' were were agreeably surprised to And it on its best behaviour.  .Gibraltar with its terraces of guns,  grim and impregnable; the kej-- to the  Mediterannean was, passed also Spain  and Morocco, then we reached, Malta  and entered the harbor of Valetta to  disembark troops for, Malta and embark others for India and receive coal.  Here the Maltese diving boys amused  us by diving for coin thrown from the  ship and bumboats laden with oranges  figs, dates and tobacco and cigarettes  came alongside to reap a rich harvest,  as after a diet of salt junk and cast  iron ships biscuits, we were only to  eager to buy whatever the cost.  Kext day we resumed our journey  and in another four days reached Port  Said, the entrance to the Suez Canal.  Coming (to anchor we began, to coal  again, while the officers and other  privileged persons off dut3' went  ashore to see the sights and dodge the  coal dust and stretch their limbs.  IC j    I^-was rather amusing to watch the  * \ coaling operations.    Just .as soon as  * j we had cast anchor the barges came  -H-li alon.Sside   and   the   stream   of   living  humanity began running up and down  ihe gang planks, carrying the coal in  baskets on their heads. Just like so  many black ants. What struck me  most was the number of women employed, and the incessant jabbering  and chanting kept up whils't all this  was going on the usual bumboat scenes  were being enacted and Tommy was  availing himself of the opportunity of  being fleeced. As the rabble were not  permitted aboard, the usual procedure  was for a rope to be thrown on board  from the bumboats below, attached to  which was a basket, ^thisTwas hauled  on board and with the money, inside  tow^^^lbelaw,; white ^erarticles desired in (exchange for coin of the realm  was conveyed by pantomimic gesture  as well as by aid of several pairs of  strong lungs and often given in various  dialects of course. Tommy was at  the mercy of the cheating Arab or  Egyptian merchant below, but one had  to take a chance or go without.  Next morning early we weighed  anchor and with the aid of a pilot commenced our journey through the canal  with the aandy deserts of Arabia on  the one hand and Egypt on the. other.  After travelling about 12 hours at the  rate of about 4 or 5 miles an hour,  not having a searchlight at our bows  we anchored at Ismaileh for the night,  resuming our journey next morning,  getting out of the canal at Suez same  afternoon.  On entering:the Reft Sea, which by  the way, Is blue, I was naturally curious to find out just where Moses crossed and where Pharoh and the Egyptians were drowned, one of the sailors  doubtless thinking that being "rookies"  we would swallow anything, informed  us with a very solemn visage that a  black line across the water still marks  the place. Needless to say we never  saw that line, but the naughty sailor  man never turned a hair when told,  and assured us we must have passed  it in the night.  I shall never-forget the beauty of  those nights in the Red Sea and Indian  Ocean. I used to sit up on deck in  the moonlight and watch the porpoises race with the ship while the prow  of the vessel cut her va>*. through the  waters, scattering sprays of phosphorescence to port and starboard, and  illuminating the water, revealing the  fish as they sportively chased each  .other.  During,the day the porpoises, dolphins, and Jlying fish with an occasional  shark, helped to enliven the scene.  We passed Aden, that barren, arid  spelt,; where I was afterwards stationed  for two- and a half years,; and five  dajte afterwards came to anchor m  Bombay Harbor. Our disembarkation;  the journey up country and the various  incidents and experiences on the way  must be left until another time.  .O. McM.  . Bones to caasnoM.

"I said five hundred between you,"  be briefly announced. "If the rope  holds, and the three people 1 am Inter*  ested ln reach the shore alive, I will  make it five hundred apiece."  ,  Ben Pollard's mahogany face became several inches .wider, and remained so permanently his friends  thought, but Jim Spence only grinned .  !

With farewell trumpetings the  vessels scurried off to Penzance, and  the telegraph-office was kept open all  night transmitting the word-pictures  of'.newspaper correspondents to thrill  the world with full descriptions of the  way in which the Gulf Rock's famished  denizens had been relieved.   ,  The last two packages ferried to  the lighthouse contained, not only  warm woolen wraps for the women  and children, but a big bundle of letters and telegrams.  Pyne was the postman. There were  at least twenty notes addressed to the  girls, and several to Brand, from  friends ashore.  Mr. Traill, of course, wrote to his  nephew and Mrs. Vansittart. Naturally, Pyne carried his own missive to  the kitchen, where he found that Constance and Enid had managed to wash  in.distilled water.  They were cutting sandwiches and  endeavoring to read their letters at I  the same instant.   He bowed with sarcastic politeness. |  ."I Bee you are ready for the party,"  he said.  Certainly he offered a deplorable  contrast to them. His face was encrusted with salt and blackened with  dirt and perspiration. His hands were  like those of a sweep, but smeared  with oil, which shone on his coat  sleeveB up to both elbows. His clothes  were torn and soiled, his linen collar  and cuffs limp as rags, and his waistcoat was ripped open, having remained  ln that condition since it caught in a  block as he-descended the mast. I  "Oh;'you poor fellow!" cried  Con-,  stance.   "llow you must envy us. Here  is a.kettleful of hot \vater.   I can't say  much for the towel, but the soap is excellent."

"Edith Taylor-Smith says she envies  us." ���������'  '7.���������.���������.'.'..  "That letter you are reading now  is from Lady Margaret. \Vhat does  she say?" 7  "She sends all sorts of love, and���������-  th,at kind of thing," cried the blushing  Enid, who bad just learnt from Jack's  mother that Stanhope had appropriated her as his intended wife without ever a proposal.

The vessel, with the most  ���������kllful handling, might remain where  pbe was for about four hours- She  was . already more than a hundred  .fathoms within the dangerous area  ���������marked by the buoy; and there was  touch, to be done in the time.  -;7 The strongest rope, the best wire  hawser, has its well-defined limit of  ���������traip7and the greater the length the  greater the tension. From the buoy  itself naught save a chain cable would  hold in such a sea. ��������� The tug must operate from the nearer base. She was  pitching and tossing in a manner calculated to daunt anyone but a Bailor,  and the slightest mistake made by the  Skipper, the burly oil-skinned man balancing: himself on the bridge witb  his    hand    on the engine-room tele-  f;raph,   would   snap   any   line   ever  wisted.'v'-.7  " So, briefly, this was' the procedure  adopted. A stout rope was bent, onto  that carried to the rock by Stanhope.  With this was sent a whip, thus establishing a to-and-fro communication.  |The rope itself,' when it had. reached  the rock, was attached to a buoy and  anchored. Thus, it could be picked up  easily if the 7 thin vwire hawser next  {despatched should happen to break.  i A few words may cover a vaBt  amount of exertion. Before the second  line, with its running gear, was safely  ftaVed around the body of the lantern  j���������even the iron railing might give way  h-a precious hour had elapsed, and  Stanhope was impatiently stamping  fej,bout the bridge of the tender, though  pone knew better than he that not an  junnecessary moment" was being lost.  ��������� At last a signaler stationed on the  lug was able to ask:  ; "What shall we send first?" -7  I And the answer came back: %������������������-���������  ! "Water, milk, bread." .  I All night tinsmiths had labored to  jsnclose food and clothing in watertight cylinders ready for transport,  ^nd the shining packages now began  their voyaging from the tug's trawl-  |>eam to the lofty gallery, three-fourths  gf the journey being through the sea.  When the first consignment reached  the rock, another lusty cheer boomed  jfrom the. watching vessels.  = Stanhope, at least, could picture the  kjcene in progress behind the grim  (granite walls���������Constance and Enid,  ���������with others whom he did not know,  serving out generous draughts to  (thirsty and famished women and men,  helping themselves. last, and hardly  Wble to empty the eight-gallon supply  ������f freBh water before they were called  on to distribute a similar quantity of  milk.  > And then, the bread, the cooked  ���������neat all cut in slices, the tinned soups  and meat extracts, the ^ines���������-for  tTraill had' taken charge of the catering and his arrangements were lavish  I���������what a feast for people almost on  the verge of, starvation!  'The hours flew until the tug signalled that she must cast loose and back  fcw^y from' the reef. The tide vwas  (running westward ! now. Soon the  idanger would be active,, and in any  fcase, the Gulf Rock was saved from  She possibility  of   famine  during  the  ^ext forty-eight hours. So the hawser,  1 its turn, was buoyed, and Brand's  parting instruction was not to attempt  to re-open communication during tht  dark hours of the morning tide.  '��������� Constance stood near to hira. That  he, of all the men she had ever met,  should yield to an overpowering emo>  tion, startled her greatly.  .  She caught his arm. ,  "Mr. Pyne," she said softly, "If���������it  is any ill tidings���������you have received-^-'  we axe, indeed, sorry for you."  He pulled himself straight, and gave  Constance such a glance that sho  hastily withdrew her hand. It seemed  to her that he would clasp her in hid  arms forthwith without spoken word.  Her action served to steady him, and  he laughed, so softly and pleasantly  that their fear was banished.  "Girls," he Bald slowly "I.have been!  parachuting through space for a min<  ute or so. ��������� I'm all right. Everybody  'is all right. But my head swims a bit  If I come back forgetting my name  and the place where I last resided, remember that once I loved you."  He left them. He could not trust  himself to say more.  "That letter was from his uncle, I  suppose," said Enid, awe-stricken.  ^"ItnrttffBrbe^^^  tic which would make him act so  strangely. Why has . he . run away?  Was he afraid tb trust us with his  hews?" -      -:'-:,., ���������;���������,.- -y  -There, was a sharp vehemence in  Constance's voice which did not escape her sister's sharp ears.  "Connie," said Enid, quietly, "as  sure as Jack loves me, tbat man is in  love with you."  "Enid���������"'  But the other girl laughed, with a  touch of her saucy humor.  "Why did he look at you in that way  Just now? Didn't you think, he was  going to embrace you on the spot?  .Confess!" :- '.=���������'������������������; ".-���������'��������� ���������  7 "It was at you he was looking."  ';' "Not in the way I mean. He gazed  at me as if I were a spirit. But when  you touched him he awoke. He might  have been asleep and suddenly seen  you near him. I wonder he didn't  say 'Kiss me, dearest, and then I will  be sure it is not a dream.'"  Constance discovered that she muBt  defend herself.  "Mr. Pyne hardly conveyed such unutterable things to me," she said, conscious that a clean face betrays a  flush which smudges may hide. "Have  you had a letter from Jack that you  can interpret other people's thoughts  so sweetly?"  "No, dear. Jack has not. written.  I have found out the cause. His mother expresses the hope that he will be  the first to convey her good wishes.  So I think he meant to try and bring  the rope himself. Dad knew it and  Mr. Pyne. That is why they did not  tell us."  Constance gathered her letters into  a heap.'. The tiny pang of jealousy  whicii thrilled her .had gone.  "Eighty-one hungry mouths expect  to be filled to repletion to-night," she  said. "No more gossip. What curious creatures women are! Our own  affairs are sufficiently engrossing  without endeavoring to pry into Mr.  Pyne's."        '   .  "Connie, don't press your lips so  tightly.. You are just dying to know  what -jpset him.

St. Andrews was short handed in the  early part ot the game, but put up a  good fight.  The Municipal Council have at last  announced their intention of carrying  out their resolution of several months'  standing, to affix name plates at the  corners of streets. It is somewhat  surprising such a common vsense-idea  should have been so long delayed and  still more astonishing that having  been recognized as a necessity, it  should have taken twelve months to  put into effect. Perhaps as election  time is so near we may soon be acquainted with the new name for the  road on which we reside.  :;  The-Collingwood Library, under the  able and energetic direction of its  curator, Mr. J.

In the  afternoon the first confirmation service was held and seven young people  presented themselves for confirmation  in the little church on 52nd Avenue.  But the event of the day was the opening of the new St. Mary's Hall by his  lordship, followed by interesting  speeches and a sacred concert.  This hall stands adjacent to the  church and is 55 by 42 feet, with a  large platform on one end, and is  capable of seating 250 persons. It was  crowded to its full capacity on this  occasion. The hall has been built anl  equipped by the vicar, Rev. Owen  Bulkeley, and is presented as a free  gift by himself and his wife to promote and extend the social side of  church work in this increasing suburb.  Bishop De Pencier said. "As'your  Bishop I can say from the bottom of  my heart I am proud of you and the  work you have done." - He appealed  to all to strive for unity of purpose  and action and to sink all petty differences for the common good and to  keep on growing.  Archdeacon Pentreath also delivered an interesting speech, mentioning  that when he arrived here some 14  years ago, he was the fifth clergyman  of the Church of England; now there  are 18.  Rev. Owen Bulkeley touched on the  hope of unity shared by all the churches and closed with some excellent  stories capitally related.  The sacred concert which followed  was' due to the kindness of Mr. Harold  D. Campbell and the following ladies  and gentlemen associated with him:  Miss Wilkie, Miss Tronsdale, Mr.  Earle, Mr. H. B. Williamson, Mr. T. J.  Montgomery-and the accompanist, Mr.  J. Johnstone. Several gems from great  masters were most ably rendered and  much appreciated. Rev. Mr. Bulkeley  has been at St. Mary's only since last  Easter, when the church was opened.  All over the world there is much  trouble over the high price of food.  Everything is becoming dearer. This  is partly due to the fact that the  great' empty regions of America are  now peopled, so that where cattle and:  sheep used to graze, corn now grows,  and where corn used to grow, great  factories have sprung up.  Happily, we in these islands can still  get good, cheap meat from our colonies  and from South America. The French  Government, however, puts a tax ou  this meat/and as the long drought of  the summer has made milk and vegetables scarce) the women in Northern  France have rebelled against the high  prices of meat. Rushing out into the  streets and market .places, they have  entered the shops���������especially the  butchers" shops���������and broken them np,  and run away with the food. An army  of troops has been sent to keep order.  But tlie people must get something  to eat; and at last the Government is  arranging to' tet colonial cattle and  foreign meat be sold cheaply, without  being  taxed.  CARTER & uELL.  * *******-**i***l^-*********** **************************  To populate the Ashing coaBt of British Columbia with fishermen of Devonshire stock, such is the proposal of  Mr. H. H. Stevens, M. P., as expressed  by him in a letter to the Vancouver  Board of. Trade, read at its meeting  last evening.  "One of the most difficult problems  on the Pacific Coast at the present  time is that of the personnel of the  fishing population," states Mr. Stevens. "They are, as you know, now  largely Japanese, and it is difficult  to get white fishermen.  "Dr. Grenfell of Labrador is anxious  to transfer a number of Labrador fishermen to the Pacific Coast. In fact, I  understand that there are several hundred, with their families, who could be  so transferred if proper arrangements  could be made at the PacificCoast for  their settlement. The proposition Is  that the Province should take the  question up along with the: Dominion  authorities and arrange to provide  homesites for, them along with a few  acres of land contiguous to the fishing  ground.  "These men.are of the highest type  morally and physically and come from  Devonshire stock chiefly,"are strictly  temperate and will make good citizens.
