C, Canada, Jan. 20, 1912.__  To the Most Worshipful Master and Brother  Orangemen of Ireland:  We, oil behalf of the Orangemen of British  Columbia, hereby express to you, and to all loyal  Protestants in Ireland, our sincere sympathy with  |,' you in your heroic and patriotic endeavors.  We endorse, with all our hearts, your course and  honor you in your long-continued contest to maintain the justice of your cause and the integrity of  the Empire, of which you and we are loyal and  living pjarts. ,.:��������� ,.\..".; ... '���������.-���������".���������������������������-', -  , No gwrit Empire in the history of the world  has ever before made an attempt to cast off, by  any kind of legislation, a loyal, manly, devoted,  energetic and highly enlightened portiou of its  own National Body, to suit the planfe, intrigues  >and vile)scheme8 of foreign and home traitors.  When almighty Empire^ like that of Britain,  undertakes to follow the guidance and commands  of a foreign priest, living in Rome, then that Empire is treading on very dangerous grounds.  The Pope; long centuries since, officially cursed  the King of-England, and the entire nation, because his demands were not yielded to.  From the days of the Caesars down to the present day, the popes and entire Roman political  hierarchy���������determined to icrush the British-^  independent, enlightened, and liberty loving, as  they always were, and are.  The Papacy hates-Britain today as it hates no  other nation on earth.. v  'This hate arises from the fact that Britons, aa  a people, insist on individual liberty, on the free  use and reading of the Holy Bible, on an up-to-  date modern education, on loyalty to the British  Crown, instead of to an intriguing foreigner who  "sets himself up as God," as an infallible master  of the bodies, souls and obedience of all men,  women and children here on earth and elsewhere,  ������ve������ after death. Never for one day or hour has  the,. Political, papist, Scheming Roman church  ceased trying to make good its fierce and diabolical official curse against the British Empire. The  machinations now going on in and against Ireland  are but a part of that long line of most traiterous  scheming. The whole reading world knows that  it is not the food of Ireland, hut the hurt to ing-  land that is the foundation and inspiring motive  of the foreign interference in British affairs-  emanating from the Vatican.  It is not Home Rule aft Canada has it in relation to Britain, but Rome Rule at Quebec has it in  relation to Canada. And there is not a more enthralled land on God's round earth than is the  Province of Quebec under the machinations of the  Jesuit priests, acting for an interfering priest living in Italy. The openly avowed policy of Rome,  us shown by the speeches aud writings of many  prominent bishops, archbishops and higher dignitaries, is to break and subjugate all Britain to the  *sway of Rome. During the Eucharistic pagan  effrontery in Montreal last year, and the contemporary peregrinations of the noisy, interfering Car-  kf dinals, they did not hesitate to say that ENGLAND  is the "ROCK of RESISTANCE to the SUCCESS  of the ROMAN CHURCH." Viewing in a similar  light the sturdy intelligence and love of freedom  ;i of England, Ireland, Seotlaud and Wales, an English Cardinal, some few years ago, said that the  only means of success by which the Pope of Rome,  "THE VICAR OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST"  ������ould once more become supreme over Britain  was "by war, bloody war, such a war as would  crush and humble her to the dust," that is to the  feet of the pope.       '  We tell you. our beloved and highly honored  loyal brethren, that the POPE of Rome, will never rule IRELAND, much less Great Britain.  Britain is the Kingdom that has been breaking  the papistic machine for hundreds of years, and  in the end, will, under God, destroy that Ancient  and "Mystic Babylon," the Whore of Revelation,  "sitting in the Seat of God," and making herself  equal, or even greater, than the Almighty.  Go on, go forward, and may the Lord of Hosts  be with you as He������ was with our forefathers of  old. You in Ireland, and we in Canada, are, under God, and in the spirit of a devoted loyalty to  our Grand Old Empire, matched against the most  relentless, heartless, intriguing, and diabolical organization this world has.ever known. But God  is on our side. It is not with human might but  with and in MIGHT DIVINE that final victory is  to be found. Let us all who are in this hand-to-  hand struggle, bare our hearts and heads to the  Great Spirit of OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN,  an������l He will bring to pass the defeat of the  TRAITORS TO OUR EMPIRE.  Your enemies are astute and most cunning. They  have traitors in your camp. Be assured of this.  They always manage to have Jesuits among the  "Protestant Clergy" and elsewhere,���������not even  excepting our own beloved order. Theirs is the  method of Satanic cunning and a profound hate  to all that is noble, manly, outspoken, true, Christian, Bible-loving, and loyal, unless that loyalty is  given their figurehead, an old priest at the City  rof Rome. Be assured of our prayers sympathy,  co-operation, and FINAL SUCCESS. "The  _ MOTHER OF HARLOTS" WILL BE CAST IN-  W TO THE PIT from which there is no reprieve.

'  Thi$ Article on the Japanese it the first of a Series of Articles  by H. H. STEVENSi M.P.,on vQ&htal* w Canada."  ��������� <  f  ;v;.  The Oriental immigration problem is one of vital infyortance to Canada, not because of any  racial pride or sentiment which may exist, but because the problem as to which is to be the dominating race on the North Pacific Coast of this continent^ Orjental or Occidental, is one which must  be solved. That it will be solved, is not to be questioned, ttut when and how! If met fairly now,  it can be settled amicably, but if allowed to drift, it will .become a subjeet of bitter and bloody  strife at some future date. ".:.' ' |  The, problem^ while in some respects complicated (of which we will apeak later) is compara- ���������!  tively simple; for, in its final analysis, it is simply question of "right." Which race has a prior 11  right to dominate the destiny of this country���������Oriental or Occidental? Which race, according to \ *  the general rules followed in such cases, has the inherent right to govern and to possess f We re- ! >  peat, that, at the present time, this question is so simple that it appears almost like folly to pro* \ |  pound it; at once the answer is given���������the, Occidental, of course. .    '������������������];  Some individual pedantic souls may dispute such a claim on the grounds that we are not the ' '>  original race, etc., etc.; but we have neither time nor inclination to enter into academic arguments *  over theories, so vague and remote from the realm of practical politics.   This is a problem intensely practical and imminent.   At this present moment, it is seriously affecting the national life, and  also the social and industrial future of the country.  In/the term "Oriental "we must include Hindoo, Chinese and Japanese. It is our intention  to treat them separately. This article will be devoted largely to Japanese immigration, reserving  for future articles the other two. There is a tendency among some y Anglo-Saxons to treat the  ���������; Japanese as an,inferior race and to patronize them; viewing their presence in the country as a ;  ','. picturesque element, simply another dash of variety to our already cosmopolitan population. Oth-  ; era, again, with imagined Christian piety, serious but blind, look upon it as a religious duty to  ; give every assistance possible to these "sojourners from a foreign and heathen land." Still others  ' welcome them as industrious and* docile workers,who do not strike, who work cheaply and thus  ; add to the employer's profits in various lines of industry.  In the first place, we wish to say, that the Japanese are of a race not to be despised.   They  > are quick, intelligent, and skillful imitators.   They are brave, and strong in physical constitution.  They are ambitious, and have views of a future when their race shall dominate the world's affairs, i  ; They have a country which, geographically speaking, has an important strategic position. They  . have about fifty millions of one distinct race, and must'have mora room, They are keen, deter-  ! mined, and have a foreign policy which spells destiny. They must be respected, and dealt with qn  VJ an equal basis. ' ���������   "V .  Oh the'other hand, we disclaim, absolutely, that we are called upon to be magnanimous in <  I treating with them, or that our "Christian duty" demands that* we sacrifice, our position, in the *  ; slightest degree, as the dominant race.   Honorable andT strictly just dealings with them, aa a na?  ' tion in the great international realm, is the utmost that ean be demanded of us.   As individuals��������� ������  ! courteous, kind, and if you like, brotherly relstions should exist.  But too many would-be philan- !  ; thropists confuse the "nation" with the "individual," and imagine that we are called upon to lay  ; at "the feet of a foreign nation our whole heritage, because, forsooth, a distorted imagination ;  ! pictures it as an altruistic act.  Referring to the contention, that we require the Japanese, on the !  ; grounds that they make good laborers, we wish to say that, in our opinion, the only persons who !  I support this contention are those who derive personal profit from the system and who find tempor- ;  I ary aud immediate relief from certain economic labor prohjems.   Japanese labor, however, is not '  ; a solution of these problems; being only, as intimated, a,temporary relief, and, by"theway, a relief ���������;  ;��������� which is altogether ehe-sided and entirely selfish.      With the demands of labor we do not intend  to deal at this time, other than to say, that it is a question which mult and should he mot.   Its  ;; solution will mean that some existing injustices will be remedied and that changes will have to  ������; occur in our industrial system, but that these can be avoided by engaging Japanese, is arrant  ! nonsense.   Once let the Japanese, or any other nationality, understand that industry cannot do  ;; without them, and you roust expect, that demands for better treatment will ensue.   This other  j; fact, however, should be remembered, that once the Japanese, an alien race, arrive at that self-  conscious point, demands will be made, much more unreasonable, and more bitterly supported, than  those of our own race.   Not only is this so, but the further fact is equally apparent, that by engaging Japanese in our industries we are establishing in our midst a very potent influence which will  affect our standard of national life seriously.   We do not infer that the Japanese standard is so  much lower than ours as to constitute a menace, but to say that it is entirely different and cannot  be equitably compared, but is none the less objectionable.  Let us now turn briefly to a consideration of reasons why we should oppose Japanese immigration to Canada. '       \  In the first place, Canada is generally acknowledged to be the key-stone of the British Empire,  > and anything, no matter how remote, which threatens the stability of Canada, in this regard  ! should be most assiduously avoided- Our contention is. that Japanese influence in Canada would  ; seriously affect that Imperial element in bur national life.   Why!   Because Japan has a vision,  and an ambition to be a controlling influence in international affairs. They have a perfect right  to hold such views, but from our standpoint, would it be in tbe best Interest of civilisation? We  dare to think not. We still cling to the opinion that the integrity of the British Empire is essential  to modern civilization, and that we represent the best in modern civilization.  Then, again> Japan has a definite policy which is being applied wherever possible. They are  securing control of South American strategic points, on the Pacific, at an alarming rate, by means  > of emigration to these countries. They have succeeded in effectively forestalling American influ-  ! enee in the Hawaiian Islands, by emigration. We repeat. they are the predominant power in these  I islands, which are of such strategic importance to operations in the Pacific. This advantage has  ; been secured by adopting the same policy as that exercised towards British Columbia, and coun-  tries to the south. In the Hawaiian Islands, on annexation to the United States in 1900, the sugar  industry received a great impetus and capital poured into the country, with the natural result, a  demand for abundance of cheap labor. The native Hawaiian was too lazy, so they tried Chinese,  Portuguese and Japanese. The Jap proved the best, with the result that Japan seized the opportunity and sent thousands of her people to those beautiful islands. Of these immigrants, a large  portion were ex-soldiers. According to the census returns of 1900, out of a population of 154,000.  there were 61,115 Japanese; this has since increased to over 80,000. Of the 4,593 children born in  the year ending June 30, 1909, 2,445 were Japanese, which is about 53 per cent, whereas their  total population is only 30 per cent of the whole. In other words, if there should be no further  | immigration by natural increase the Japanese will, in a few years, far outnumber all other races  > combined in those islands, including the natives.  I Their presence on the islands has resulted in a  social  revolution.    They  control  the  retail  | trade now, and are rapidly acquiring control of the wholesale trade. They have their own  ; schools, their own doctors, newspapers, temples and theatres.   In short, they are rapidly changing  the Hawaiian Islands into a "Little Japan." They are there to stay and if at any future time  America and Japan clash,���������which the events of the last few years demonstrate to be more than  a possibility,���������then America will ������nd that Japan will have a naval base in mid-Pacific, and that  base will be the Hawaiian Islands.  What Japan has accomplished in the Hawaiian Islands, they are endeavoring to accomplish  in British Columbia. Already Japanese absolutely control the fishing industry. Ten years ago  therejwere less than 500 Japs fishing in B.. C. waters; today there are about 10,000, many of  whom are naval reservists. They have copplete^ charts of our whole Pacific Cpast line, more accurate and complete than our most up-to-cate admiralty charts. They hold some of the best coal  lands on the Queen Charlotte Islands. They have a complete system of retail stores, and supply  all the wants of their own people, besides a great portion of "white trade." They have their  own trust companies and banks. The natural increase is very large and in a few years will create  a serious menace, when they secure the franchise. Large numbers take the oath of allegiance for  commercial reasons,���������about 1,500 last year alone; yet they remain ultra-loyal to Japan. They  thus have full rights of citizenship in Canada, and at the same time constitute a standing army for  Japan in our midst. To a large extent, they are the chief element in our logging and shingle  industries, also in the boat-building industry. They^ secure rights which belong exclusively to citizens (by virtue of a false oath) and claim protection under the influence of the Japanese Government. This is demonstrated by the fact that they claimed, and received, compensation for damage  resulting from the Vancouver riots, in September, 1907, by virtue of the .v fact that they were  aliens, yet most of them were securing privileges which were the exclusive rights of citizens. The  Japanese interests of British Columbia are closely identified with those of Japan, which is proven  by the fact that most of their operations are financed by the Bank of Japan, through a syndicate  with headquarters in Seattle. Their exclusiveness makes it difficult to get any satisfactory adjustment of a dispute or to apprehend a criminal: There has been quite a number of brutal murders  among them, many of the perpetrators having escaped.   The most of them carry concealed arms,  (Continued on Pago 8)  *j8 8118MI|t|)IJj8 II11II11811 Ii llllHHMUHHIIIIIIIHI 8888 88 8 8881 III!

I am aware of the determined attempts to do  better, of certain persons who have run foul of  the law, by acts of thoughtlessness rather than  through a set purpose to break the law; attempts  honestly put forth to "make good" in the presence of their neighbors. If I honor any man in  my heart, and have the right hand of fellowship  for any human being, it is for the person who has  made a momentary slip, and then straightway determines to do better. There are certain persons  whom we shall do our best to assist. They are  proving themselves honestly and sincerely worthy.  We on Grandview, and elsewhere in this City,  delight to come quickly to the assistance of those  who are striving to "MAKE GOOD." To these  we Say���������Success, and God Speed You.  A WORD TO SOCIALISTS.  Later on I shall address a lengthy epistle to  these worthy and unworthy members of our community. WTiat 1 wish to say just now is this:  The MacNamara Brothers are sufferers today,  largely because of the seed sown in their minds  and hearts in the past. The Gun-Men in Vancouver are largely the brood grown up from the  rotten seed sown m their minds during past years.  From vile seed must come vicious fruit. From  serpent's Seed comes a crop of Dragon's Teeth.  And "as men sow, so shall they reap." I have  hosts of friends amongst the Socialists, in Vancouver. To these I say control your organization.  Do not let the vilest of noisy foreigners control  you and make your honest efforts worse than useless. You must ever fail, unless you hold in your  hands your own destinies. Cut out the numerous  rowdies, and let them stand aside. They hurt you  and curse you, and disgrace your cause.  Mr. C.

The German experiment spoken of  in my last article is apparently worked on a very large scale���������and deals  with other problems as well as the  food prices���������but all of which may be  said to directly affect the cost of living. There they have adopted the  Community plan and have combined  on a large plan to reduce the cost of  commodities to their members���������also  the Government have taken a hand  with certain foodstuffs, and the railways and transportation ��������� companies  have followed suit.  Beginning in a Bmall way. just as I  propose here, they have built up powerful leagues in different parts which  work together under one name, "Production." The members run into  scores of thousands and they handle  everything���������even to clothes and large  blocks of apartments that may be said  to affect the cost of living.  It seems there they are grouped up  in tradeB to minister to the wants of  each other���������the carpenter members  doing all the building, the tailors the  clothing, the farmers and butchers  handle the meat trade, and so on.  CondiUons in Germany are,. of  course, very different to those in Canada���������with their small amount of agricultural land���������lack of production Is a  very potent cause of high price which  they are unable to remedy.  Again, the German meat supply Is  at the present time suffering from last  summer's prolonged drought; this  year's hay crops were the poorest for  many years, and other fodders have  suffered to such.. an extent that in  many places, forced sales of cattle  which they could not feed bace occurred, and In other regions fodder intended for winter feed have by now  been exhausted, thus decreasing the  visible supply of meat  The question of alleviating tne present living conditions In Germany Is  being actively discussed by the Imperial and State Governments,. the  municipal administrations, Chambers  ot Commerce, and by workmen's and  employees' associations. The Imperial  Government has been petitioned to reduce the customs tariff on bread, cereals, potatoes, etc.; but as yet no  change has been   made   in German  The  Prussian  Railway Addli  tion, in addition to 50 per cent  tiori on freight rates for fodder������ft&?  carried on its lines, has reduced barley  for  feeding purposes,  and  corn,  fresh potatoes and 'vegetables.  With the object of favoring the German sea fishing industry and increasing fresh sea fish as a food by the  people���������the freight rates on this commodity has been materially reduced.  In seven of the principal markets  of Berlin, the municipal authorities  have erected 70 stands for sale of sea  fish. The prices and weight and quality of fish are set out by the market  officials. With each sale a recipe of  how best to cook fish is given to the  purchaser.  Owing to the prevalence of foot and  mouth disease in Germany and the inability of the German farmer to procure stock food without high cost, railway tariffs on feeding stuffs have  been greatly reduced to try and help  the situation, which appears to be  very serious at the present time.  It would be interesting to Western  Call readers to learn, how far the  "Producktlon" league has saved the  situation for its members.  Possibly this journal has several  readers who have friends or relatives  in Germany, who can inform of these  results. If so, will they kindly write  "Pathfinder," care Western Call.  Meantime, what of the Council of  Ten?  Paris tells the same tale as Berlin,  and here the bourgeois would be  swamped under an avalanche of high  prices were' it not for those thrifty  housewives, who are surely the best  market women In the world.  In this City of Gaiety as it Is known  to the civilized; world, "Gay Paree,"  one finds among the working women  a cleverness in making both ends  meet that will be discovered nowhere  else.  They would be a lesson to their  Canadian sisters, as never In Eastern  Ontario, among the French Canadians,  have I seen such thrift as one can  find in Paris.  PATHFINDER.  *' tariff policy.  TOWN  TOPIC*.  (By "Touchstone")  The election  that has come and  gone Is probably one of the most  momentuou8 in Vancouver's history,  marking, as it does, the downfall of  B  erican "boss"   rule   in   our   Civic  luncil, we have now a Mayor whl will  not claim every particle of work as  "my" policy when it Is good���������and lay  the blame on the Committee or Council's shoulders when it is bad.  Vancouver has now an ideal Council who. will work like a trained team  for the up-buliding of the City on  sound, sane lines���������moreover the heads  of all departments must be made directly responsible to the Council���������both  collectively and individually.  "Has Vancouver gone back under  Taylor?" may now be answered in the  affirmative.   It has, 1314 points back.  At the same time, one does not need  to un.duly crow over a fallen foe and  the electorate extends it guarded  thanks for any good Taylor has done,  or tried to do, and the chances are  that in private life the late Mayor will  beconoie a more popular, or at all  events a more useful citizen.  Not a day should be wasted for getting the New City Hall scheme under  way���������now the battle of the sites is  decided. It Is obvious to anyone who  has the slightest notion of what Buch  a building should be that the present  site���������even if the Carnegie Library Is  taken in is far too small for the purpose.  What a canting rogue is the Seymour  Street Bcrlbe who penned that note  about lifting up his eyes to bless  Dominic Burns daily���������because, forsooth, he Is trying to finish off the bald  hldeousness of that sky-scraper horror of his with a clock, to give us the  time.

Muliett,  the services, installed In South Vancouver during 1911 numbered. 2754.  The sum of 823,754.82 was paid to the  city of Vancouver for water, and the  total revenue waa 838,999. There are  now 69 miles of water mains in   the  dead In the woods, with nothing In  their crops bat bark twigs. He suggests that the gun clubs, or sportsmen  generally, should furnish the firehalls  with grain, so that those who wished  to do so could scatter It In the woods  to preserve the birds, which are now  dying of starvation.  Edmunds Ratepayers' Association.  The newly formed Ratepayers' Association of Ward Two have decided to  hold a general aieetlng of the Ratepayers' associations of the municipality tor the purpose of bringing forward  a proposition to change the status of  these associations so that they will be  formed according to geographical position and settlement, irrespective of  wards, and to give them distinctive  names.  WANTED! OTHERS!.  Some recent utterances of Mr. Lloyd  George of England oh the "Woman's  Vote" are well worth greater publicity  and worth pondering by our men of  B. C, for although varied conditions  obtain not quite analogous to those of  an older civilized country, yet the  great and vital demand for justice Is  fundamentally the same. After expressing his belief in the capacity and  intelligence and public , spirit of  women, and deriding the pessimistic  (predictions of some of his confreres,  he was trtunful and noble enough to  say, "To be quite frank, has the government of men been such an unqualified success that we can claim a monopoly for ourselves? , We are here  near the seat of Government. You  have got tbe throne; you have got the  Houses of legislature; you have got  the great stately buildings from which  edicts go forth that affect the lives of  millions ot people in the remotest  ends of the earth; and yet, within a  mile of Parliament, you have wretchedness, poverty, squalor,, which fills  the heart with disgust and horror.  That is after ages of the government  ot men. Why, men have not yet devised a better method of stttling international quarrels than by blowing  each other's brains out! All the great  problems of life men and women have  settled together. The deepest problems of life, the greatest problems of  lite, they have shared them. The sorrows of life and its trials they have  extensive and expensive repairs mast  be made.  Speaking more particularly of the  Yale Road, the highway over which  thousands of American tourists will  be coming to Canada this summer, Mr.  Kerr called attention to the necessity  of laying a hard surface pavement  over this road from New Westminster  to Blaine, Wash. While the cost of  this might seem to be heavy, when it  was considered that this work would  be of a permanent nature, and that no  repairs would be necessary for perhaps ^fty years, the economy of the  proceeding waa at once apparent. The  nature of the "hard surface pavement"  was not specified .In the resolution. In  replying to the acquest of the deputation, the Hon. Thomas Taylor dwelt  at some length on the work accomplished by his department on the Yale  Road during the past twelve months.  He stated that his department was  now In a position to proceed'with this  Improvement with more diligence on  account of the establishment of three  stone bunkers, one at Sullivan Station,  one at Cloverdale and the third at  Langley. The minister also intimated  that the-department would pay particular attention to the Trunk roads  of the province this year, leaving to  the municipalities the care of the  feeders of these highways, without  wholly withdrawing the support given  in the past to these cross roads.  ������������������  Mr. Taylor promised that he would  look carefully into the advisability of  putting down hard pavement aa sag?  gested by the Canadian Highway Association, and that aa the scheme had  his- entire sympathy he would consider it favorably.

Mr. Muliett says there are at present 4761 families, representing about  23,805 persona, to be catered for. Allowing 60 gallons per person, 1,426,200  gallons are daily required, and he sug  gesto that storage tanks or water towers should be erected without delay.  Acting on behalf of Mrs. Emma Gold,  owner of large property in South Vancouver, Mr. George H. Collins, barrister, ������has issued a writ against ex-Councillor John P. McDonald, for tbe repayment to the municipality of South  Vancouver a sum of 83,000, allegedly  spent in the Improvement of Fraser  Avenue lots, from municipal funds.  The George Williams Bible Class of  the Vancouver T. M. C. A. held its  second social of the season last Thursday evening, when forty-five members  of the class spent a very enjoyable  evening, lasting from eight until about  eleven-thirty. After various games  bad been indulged in, and light refreshments had been served by a waiter and other members of the Bible  Class committee, Mr. R. Graham spoke  a few words in praise of the excellent  work being done by the Bible Class  executive, Mr. M. E. Stewart, president of the class, remarked briefly  upon the work of the class generally,  and introduced Mr. Rushton, who  placed before the gathering the alms  and objects of the committee, which  has been formed for the purpose of  placing a Bible in every hotel room  in the city. Two hundred and twenty-  five Bibles were guaranteed by the  forty-five young men present, and it is  fully expected that this number will  be considerably increased when the  matter is brought before other members of the class.  For several years a large group of  men have found the sessions of the  George Williams Bible Class very  profitable. New light on the subjects  discussed, practical help for everyday  living, and the promotion of friendly  intercourse are factors which have  contributed to the popularity and helpfulness of this class. Tbe friendship  supper, which is served about six p.m.  every Sunday, is noted fox its good  fellowship, and is a fine place for  members of the class and other young  men to get acquainted with each other.  the most enduring, the most successful���������and I say it would be a day ot  bleasiug for this Empire when that  partnership is carried Into the sphere  of government" Well done! Well  said! Brother Lloyd George! You're  a "man after my own heart" It is  certainly the manifestation of a spirit  in marked contrast to that ignoble  attitude so frequently observed where  the so-called "man"-of-the-bouse emphasizes and reiterates with no uncertain sound that he alone is "Bossee"  until the very kettle on the kitchen  stove is aware of the profound truth.  Talk about "Home Rule** for Ireland!  It's a much needed, reform in other  countries also, for there, is no "Home  Rule," but despotism where one alone  frames all the laws and has supreme  administrative powers to which is expected unquestioning obedience. N6,  justice will never be enthroned until  women have an equal voice wltb her  partner, man, in domestic, in civic and  national life. However, the situation  is not without hope. The men of the  past, at least many of them, nave been  wrongly educated and therefore have  much to unlearn and we must exercise  patience, for all true reform is slow  but sure. Meanwhile, we echo the  sincere desire that many more such  broad,   wlde-visloned,   noble men   as  At a meeting last week, a representative gathering, strengthened by  a few enthusiasts of the male sex, met  at the home of ex-Mayor and Mrs.  Douglas, Comox street, to consider  plans for the improving of the Sunset  City of the West Mrs. Peter Mc-  Naughton was called to the chair, and  welcomed the gathering in a neat and  appropriate speech, calling upon her  colleague, Mrs. J.

Mrs. Perry had data from all the  prominent cities of Europe; and now  a general advance was to be made on  the city. An organised fofee must  move out to remove ugly blots or  cover up blemishes and eyesores. The  plan of campaign embraces four com  mittees.

GOOD ROADS TO  COMMAND ATTENTION  New Westminster, B. C, Jan. 13.���������  Big appropriations will be made by  the Provincial Government at the  present session for the construction,  improvement and maintenance of  roads in British Columbia. This announcement was made by Hon- Thomas Taylor, Minister of Public Works,  to twenty-eight Canadian Highway Association representatives!! who waited  upon the Provincial Executive at Victoria this week.  In speaking as a representative of  the association, President W. J. Kerr,  of New Westminster, said that the attention paid to roads by the Department of Public Works was very gratifying and augured well for the future.  He realized that with, the many calls  made upon the finances of the province, the department could not possibly accomplish all that it might wish,  but be hoped to see work of a permanent nature carried on without a halt  for many years to come. In his opinion it was better to construct a few  miles of permanent roads that would  be a credit to the province, and that  will remain as a monument to the  present administration; permanency,  instead of mileage, should-be the aim  of the department. When an attempt  is made to constructs long stretch of  road with only a limited amount of  money, the work must necessarily be  flowers and vegetables, and In horti  culture generally; give prizes for the  best kept grounds.  Amongst those present were: Bishop A. U. de Pencier, Mayor Findlay  and Mrs. Findlay, Mr. and Mrs. Douglas, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander, Mr. and  Mrs. MacKay Fripp, Mr. and Mrs. F.  C Wade, Dr. and Mrs. Brydone-Jack,  Mr. and Mrs. Rorrison, Miss Kilby,  Mr. and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. and Mrs.  Miller, Mr. and Mrs. McCandless, Mr.  N. Leech.  FORESTRY IN EUROPE.  The productive forest area in 1902 on  the Grand Duchy of Hesse in Europe  amounted to 182,263 acres. In general the standing timber is composed of  sixty-nine per cent hardwood and thirty-one per cent coniferous forest. The  fir ranks first among the coniferous  species. The total yield of lumber in  1908 was 4,575,000 cubic feet Refuse  in so far as it is not suitable for lighter  lumber, such aB laths or for pulp, is  used for firewood. The expenditures  for salaries, forest cultivation and road  building amounted to approximately  8754,000, and tbe total gross income  (from lumber and firewood) was $1,-  161,931. The capital represented by  the forests (852,665,354) brought interest accordingly at 2.21 per cent.  Where intensive forestry of this kind  is practised, forest fires arc unknown.

Message to the Orangemen of Ireland  (Continued from page 1)  Perhaps the present servile British government  will be so stupid, so infatuated, so insane as to  call upon the BRITISH TROOPS to help them in  their nefarious schemes. So let them call upon  our Soldiers-. Then they, madmen that they be,  will have their eves opened, if not shut in death.

LOCAL  ORRANGEMEN  OPPOSE  HOME  RULE  Will   Aid   Brethren   in   Ireland   With  Men and Money.  County and Grand Lodges Will Take  Action Next Month.  Orangemen of British Columbia  will combine with members of tbe order throughout the other provinces of  Canada in aiding the Orangemen of  Ireland in their fight against Home  Rule in that country, according to a  statement made today by Mr. Thomas  Duke, a prominent Orangeman ot  Vancouver. In discussing the matter  Mr. Duke said:  "Orangemen throughout Canada  will help their brethren in the old  land in their fight against Home Rule.  Judging by press reports the situation  In Ireland Is serlouB. At a recent  joint meeting of Vancouver and New  Westminster lodges held at New  Westminster a strong resolution on the  subject was passed and ordered forwarded to the executive of the order  in the old land. The view of tbe  conference was that men and money  were at the command of the brethren  In Ireland.  "The situation will be further discussed at a meeting of the County  Lodge of the order on Feb. 6th. The  Orange  Grand   Lodge  will  meet  In  Revetatoke on Feb. 21,-and*,I have no  doubt tfcat action representative of the  feelings of all members of the order  in British Columbia will be then  taken."  At a meeting of the Sons and  Daughters of Ireland Protestant Association on Monday night, the following  resolution was carried unanimously  and ordered forwarded by cable to  Colonel Wallace, leader of the Unionist party in Belfast, Ireland:  "Resolved that the Sons and Daughters of Ireland Protestant Association  extend their sympathy to the Loyalists  of Ireland in their fight against Home  Rule, and pledge themselves to send  both men and money should the occasion arise."  The resolution was cabled yesterday  by the president. Mr. F. Wilson.  BORDEN TO SUPPORT  MOVE FOR GOOD ROADS,  Father S. was remarkable for his  ready wit.    On one occasion,  while)  traveling  on  a  steamboat,  a  welly  known  sharper,  who wished  to  get  into the priest's good graces, said:  "Father, I should like to hear very  much one of your sermons."  "Well," said the clergyman, "you  could have heard me last Sunday if  you had been where you should have  been."  "Where was that, pray?"  "In the county jail," answered the  bluff priest, as he walked away.���������San  Francisco Star.  >* 111 M"i' i u i in i niimin i m 11 mi 11 i' 11111 h i >*****������  JANUARY SALE  Immense Reductions on all Good*  - \ ���������    Sale Price 60c to 88.00 - >  -        -        Sale Price 16-76 ] |  reg. 81.60 to 86.00    ���������    Sale Price 81.00 to 88.60 ..  ���������   Men's Serge Coat and Vest, reg. 86.00     -      -      -      Sale Prise 89.00 *'  These coats are lined and well made.

J. Kerr Notified That Premier Will  Pay Attention to Need of Better  Highways in Canada.  New Westminster, B. C, Jan. 18.���������  Private information received by W. J.  I Kerr, President of the Canadian Highway Association, .from some of the  members of Parliament close to Premier R. L. Borden, foreshadow important legislation with regard to roads in  the Dominion of Canada. While it is  not advisable at this time to make  known Mr. Borden's, intentions, it is  safe to predict that Canada's first conservative administration for sixteen  years will recognize the rapidly growing interest in good roads, and will  make a bid for public approval by devoting time, attention and money to  this worthy object.  In his speech from the throne at the  opening of- Parliament, in -November.  His Royal Highness the Duke of Can-  naught touched upon the question of  Good Roads, intimating that it would  be one.of the subjects which would receive his special attention. His Royal  Highness, having traveled extensively,  | has long since recognized the important factor that roads are in the material advance of a country, and while  his position In a measure debars him  from taking an active part in any  scheme aimed, at the betterment of  roads, yet his sympathy Is known to  be wholly with this object.  The western members of Parliament  will support Mr. Borden in his endeavor to give Canada better toads. J.  D. Taylor, member for tbe Westminster District, in a speech made at  Langley a few days ago, told the farmers of that district that he would do all  In his power to bring forward an Improvement in the standard of Canada's  highways. He also pointed put that  the Dominion Oovernment at the time  of Confederation made a Canadian  highway one of the inducements offered to this province���������a promise  which today still stands unredeemed.  With the immense strides which  Canada has made of late years, and the  marked prosperity which she enJoyB at  this time, roads can no longer be treated as a negligible quantity. The citizen demand's,7 and muBt have, good  roads. The day is now past when a  rock strewn trail was considered good  enough for tbe districts; the farmer  is as much entitled to a first class road  as ia the city resident. The farmer always has been, but he has not always  impressed that fact strongly enough  on the politician and the statesman.  Now the time has arrived when the  cry for good roads is general.* It is a  matter for congratulation on the part  of the farmer, for those in high places  recognize that if he is not giveii the  transportation facilities to which he is  entitled, they will receive their answer  through the medium of the ballot box.  |     ^K^StBEbWr*      Phone:   Fairmont 621  2513 Main St., Near Broadway  i  I  f.  | We have the goods you want at.:  prices you like  Special for Saturday  Finest Finnan Haddie to be had  Choicest of FISH Halibut, Salmon, Herring  Fresh Dressed Cbix  Fresh Legs Pork  Local Lamb Fresh Spare Ribs  Butter and  Eggs  THE JANUARY ROD AND GUN.

' "It Is very good of you to take this  trouble," she said, and when he looked  at her a slight color was visible  through tbe veil.  "How Is your mother?" he asked,  abruptly.  He felt, rather than saw, her start  at surprise.  She did not expect the relationship  to be acknowledged with such sudden  candor.  "She is much better," she assured  him.  "That's all right." he announced, as  If a load were off his mind. And then,  somewhat to her mystification, he entertained her with the news.  Elsie and Mamie bad quitted Pen-  sanoe the previous evening, an aunt  having traveled from Boston as soon  as the first tidings of the wreck reached her.  "She was a young, nice-looking aunt,  too,.* he said, cheerfully. "And I was  powerfully fond of those two kiddles."  "The association of Ideas might  prove helpful," she suggested, with a  touch of her old manner.  "That Is what struck Elsie," he admitted. "She said she didn't .know  why I couldn't marry Aunt Louisa  right off, and then we could all live  together sociably."  "Oh!   And what did the lady say?"  "She thought it was a great Joke,  until I said that unfortunately I had  made other arrangements. Then she  guessed her nieces had got a bit out  of hand."  "Have yon seen the poor fellow  whose arm was broken? Enid has  not had a moment to give me details  of events since we landed."  From that point their conversation  dealt with generalities. Soon the girl  peroelved his intent. His sole desire  was to place her at her ease, to make  kef realise that no matter what troubles life held they could be vanquished  with a smile. She responded to hi*  toood, and enlivened the drive with  comments on tbe people they met and  the houses and villages they passed*  JFor two hours the world went well  because It was forgotten.  Enid, the conspirator, waited until  the pair Jn the dog-cart were out of  eight. Then she went to the little  room at the back of the cottage where  Brand pretended to be busily engaged  In compiling a scientific account of  his atuwcope.  "I am going out, dad," she said, try*,  Ing to appear unconcerned.  "All right," he answered, lerlnf  down hit pipe. ..I"   Ii  "I only cams to tell you because;  Mrs. Sbeppard Is oat, too." . j  Obviously Enid was determined thai  If Pyne's calculations were worth any*  thing they should have fair play;  ������������������Oh," he commented sharply, "hut  the maid is in?"  "Yes. She is such a stupid girl in  soma things. If���������If our guest rings  700 will hear her. Would you mind  asking Mary what it is In case she get*  muddled?"  fie glanced at her. ~She was pulling  on her gloves, and vastly bothered by  a refractory button.  "If l bear the bell, I will inquire."  he said, and she escaped, feeling quite  wicked.  When be was alone, he did hot re-  same his task, in the next room, separated from htm only by a brick wall,  waa bis wife. A wall! Why should  there always be 4 wall between them?  It was not of bis building. Had she  made it impassable during the long  years? And what would be the outcome, now that Constance was ln  daily communion with her mother?  Tbe doctor, in kindly ignorance, had  told him that Mrs. Vansittart was  convalescent snd would be able to  travel In a tew days. In response to  a question, the doctor added that the  lady herself asked when she might be  moved.  What was her plan? Mr. Traill,  that day, had written him a sympathetic letter, mentioning tbe fact that  Mrs. Vansittart had voluntarily rescinded her promise to marry him, aim,  indeed, judged by the light of present  knowledge, had determined on that  course since she first knew that her  former husband was living.  Suddenly Brand pushed back bis'  fchair from the desk at which he sat.  . "The young dog!" be growled. He  had In fact followed the exact mental  process which Pyne mapped out for  him. The letter, the drive, Mrs. Shep-  pard'e absence, Enid's uneasy wriggling at the door, were all parts of an  ordered plan. He waa to be given an  opportunity of seeing his wife and disentangling the twisted strands of  twenty years. He rose impatiently,  and paced the room, quietly withal,  lest the woman in the next room  should hear him. A decision had been  forced on him. He could shirk it no  longer.  "Pyne has contrived this," he muttered. "He<thinks be can see more  clearly Into the future than a man  twice his age. Enid is in the plot, too.  And Connie! No, not Connie. Dear  heart! She Is worn with anxiety, yet  she never once mentioned her mother  to me since she carried her into the  bouse like an ailing child."  Back and forth he walked, wrestling with the problem. See his wife  he must, and before she quitted Cornwall. Was it advisable, ln her present state of health, to take her by  surprise? Pyne evidently thought so.  And the doctor! Good Heavens! was  the doctor in the thing, too?  At last, he tugged at the bell.  "Mary," he said, "ask Mrs. Vansittart   if   she    feels able to see Mr,  Brand."  - There; it wajMlpne. ^ . *  wife to discuss matters in a friendly Br������nd- thinking it best to fall in with,  spirit, and, for their daughter's sake, "������r mood, sat in silence on a chair  agree to some arrangement wherebyI which he had drawn close to the win-  Jea^Tne oasslon^hf a^Hftne !'"roTnary TacYlKat this *a* The 'day  Jlda"ayrw.PsadeJd: %*7Eb������ ill I* hl������ re,,������< had he "������rved hls ������"������ ">  jnonths on the rock.

It Is better  that we should have a quiet talk than  that we should -part again ln anger  and bitterness."  She caught his hand ln both of hers.  Still she said nothing. Her large  eyes gated up at him as it she sought  to read In his face the thoughts he  might not utter, tbe memories he  might not recall. Her lips distended.  He saw her mouth twitching at the  corners.  "Nanette," he said again, though his  voice was not well under control, and  something rose in his throat, and  stifled him. "I appeal to you not to  give way to���������to emotion. You may���������,  become ill again���������and I would never  forgive myself."  SUU clinging to bis hand, she sank  on her knees by his side. But there  was no wild burst of tears; her sorrow  was too deep for such kindly aid.  "Stephen." she whispered faintly,  "I cannot ask you to forget, but you  have spoken of forgiveness. Can you  forgive?" ���������������������������'���������,  He bent over her and would have  raised her; she clung to him with  such energy that he desisted.  "My poor wife!" be murmured,  "who am I that 1 should deny that  which I hope to obtain from my Creator?"  ��������� !������������������=���������;��������� ���������-,/.���������  ...'  "But���������" ahe panted, In that unnerving whisper���������"I treated you so vilely.  1 left you to join that man you bad  fought to save me. I deserted my husband ������nd my child for the sake of the"  money be bequeathed to me. In tbe  lust of wealth 1 strove to crush you  out of my heart. And now that God  has humbled me J must humble myself. Stephen, l am not your wife. J  obtained a divorce���������"  "Nanette," he cried, "f cannot tea*  to see you kneeling at my feet. I aslf  no revelations. I forgive you .any.  wrong you may have done me, fully,  end freely, as I hope to he forgiven."  She yielded to his pleading and al-'  lowed him to raise her. Tor an in/  stent she was clasped to bis breast  "It would be'happiness to die in.  your arms, Stephen, she said, wildly. "I do not deserve it, 1 know, but  Heaven is merciful."  The dreadful idea possessed him  that In her weak state this passionate  wish might be granted.  "Nanette!" he cried, "you must control yourself. If you will not promise  to sit down and talk quietly I will  leave you."  She obeyed him Instantly. '  "I don't care how much you scold  me," she said, "but you must not go  away. I meant to see you before I  left Pensance. I came here that night.  I looked through the window. I saw  my daughter and her. adopted sister  listening to you and weeping because  of a mother's shame. Then I must  have lost my senses. I ran away. I  remember nothing else until t-woke  up to find Constance caring for me���������  In your house"  bore In Nebraska. I had done with it  and with you, as I thought���������Constance  never entered my mind save as a  feeble memory���������:so I became Mrs.  Etta Vansittart."  Brand raised his head and looked at  her again. She was speaking now in  a curiously subdued tone. She was  giving evidence against herself, aud  giving it truly.  In Newport, Saratoga, and the Adirondack* In summer, in New York  during the winter, I lived in a drowsy  content. People who take drugs must  reach that state, but their condition is  pitiable when they are aroused. Many  men asked me to merry them. I  laughed at the idea. At last I met Mr.  Traill. We were friendly for quite  five years.1 I came to Europe, to tbe  Engadine, where I found that Mrs. Stephen Brand's troubled life was forgotten, but Mrs. Vansittart,-the rich widow, was popular. There I saw Mr.  Traill again. He offered me marriage,  and I fancied It would be well to ally  myself with a man so distinguished  and widely known on both sides ot  the Atlantic. 1 did not love htm. 1  respected and admired him���������that was  all. I accepted him, but stipulated  that I should go back to the states and  wind up my affairs there, returning to  Paris for the wedding. That was necessary, If I would maintain my deception. So, Stephen, after a lifetime of vagary and wandering, this if  tbe result. I am bespattered by tbe  mud of my own acts; J see my forgotten , daugber grown to beautiful womanhood; I meet my husband, whom  I might have loved and honored, pav  tiently following the path Into which  my neurotic impulses drove him.  Stephen, do you think my punishment  is completed?"  Tbe bitter self-condemnation in her  voice was not defiant but subdued  She had traveled fat In spirit through  the Vale of Tears since the Gulf flock  barred her onward progress:  Though she asked a question she  seemed to expect no answer. Brand  thinking to render her task less trying, was still looking \through the win-  flow and watching the steady churning  of the tender towards Cam du and  thence to the lighthouse.  -'-  At last he spoke:  "When 1 entered this room," he said,  "I meant to avoid a scene which must  have been as exhausting to you as it  is painful to me. Yet as it happens, It  Is well for both of us that you have  lifted the veil from what has gone before. Now it should be dropped���������for-  ver." ���������  "Tell me what .you wish me to do.  I will obey."  "Don't you think It will be better if  we defer a final settlement? You have  already taxed your frail powers beyond tbelr limit."  "No Stephen. Speak now. I will  not faint nor yield to weakness. I will  live. Have no fear. Death does not  come as a skilful healer ot the wounded conscience. It may be sought, and  I have thought of that. But Constance  would suffer, and. if it will spare her  He tried to break In upon the trend P������������, I will endure to the end. Surely  at her thought. This was by no means I owe her that reparation. I commit-  the line he had Intended to pursue.1 ted moral suicide once in my life. Let  His hope was to soothe and calm her; It suffice!"  to part from her ln amity and without The fixed plan of the study, with Its  giving her cause to deplore a loss of'carefully arranged phrases, was not so  dignity. readily acceptable to the man now.  "I am only too pleased that wheH|What would become of his wife It he  illness overtook you you were com- drove her forth, this time of bis own  mltted to my care and to Constance.' accord, to live In mournful solitude,  Poor   girl!     She   thought you were' brooding over a wasted life and look-  Mace farewell. She held him" by ne'r  irery .helplessness. But the rapid trot  >f a horse caught his ears, and, whilst  ie stood irresolute, he saw Constance  flighting from the dog-cart. His wife  looked out, too. They heard their  laughter laughingly regret that she  xnild not ask Mr. Pyne to luncheon���������  meals were irregular events Just then.  'Brand felt a timid hand grasping  lis, and a choking sob proclaimed that  Constance's mother was crying.  He stopped with a motion that was  ilmost it caress.  ������������������: "Don't cry," he said. "I cannot bear  it."  "I can bear anything, Stephen," she  sobbed, "if only you will let me stay  with you forever."  "Do you mean that, Nanette?" he  gasped, incredulously.  "I, have prayed, yes, dared to pray,  :hat It might be so ever since I saw  my' child. She "has brought uT together again. I<et us not part, for her  sake, and for mine. Stephen, if it is not  too late."  So Constance, hastening up' the garden path, could not believe her eyes  when she saw her father lift her mother into his arms and kiss her.,  Mary, the maid, never ceased wondering why every other member of her  sex in Laburnum Cottage should be  tearful yet ridiculously happy that  afternoon. Mrs. Vansittart wept, and  Miss Constance wept, and Miss Enid  wept when she came in, whilst Mrs.  Sheppard was weeping at intervals all  day.  Nevertheless they were all delighted  in their woe, and Mrs. Sheppard. although she cooked a tremendous dinner, never scolded her once.'  It was also a remarkable thins that  the invalid lady should Insiststhat she  waa strong enough to come downstairs that evening. She did not eat  a great deal, poor thing, but she looked ever so much better, and seemed to  find all her pleasure in gazing alternately at the master and Miss Constance, and in listening to every word  they said.  In the garden, next night, the moon  being now very brilliant indeed, Pyne  said to Constance that the step-aunt  Idea having fizzled out he guessed  that the lady who figured in that unclassified degree of relationship would  pose more satisfactorily as a mother-  in-law.  He.said other things that have been  said in many languages since men began to woo women, but the phrases are  hackneyed save to those who listen,  and need not be repeated here.  . But why two marriages should take  place after extraordinarily short engagements, no one In all Penzance  knew save Lady Margaret Stanhope,  and she, mtrablle dlctu (being a woman), kept her counsel. It created no  end of a sensation when Constance  waa described In the London newspapers as "only daughter of Sir Ste-  Shen Brand. Bart, of Lesser gamble*  on, Northumberland." Local gossip  quickly exhausted Itself, as both weddings took place in London, tbe only  available items being the magnificence  of the diamonds given to Enid and  Constance by Mr. Traill, and the fact  that, in Constance's case, "the bride's  mother'' was described at "looking  charming in a silver-grey costume  trfmmed with point d'Alencon lace."  Even when confronted with this  momentous statement by Mrs. Taylor-  Smith. Lady Margaret only shrugged  sr shoulders end purred:  "A romance, my dear, a romance of  leal ute."  On the day following the departure  of two happy couples for the Continent  ���������Mr. and Mrs. Pyne to Italy. Went  and Mrs. stanhope to the fUviera>.  With Intent to meet In Borne at Easter  ���������a quieter and more sedate couple  look train at Waterloo for Southampton, bound for the Far Wept.  Although a Nebraska decree of  divorce does not bold good In English  law, Lady Brand wished to be married  again in the State which sanctioned  her earlier tolly. Her husband agreed  readily. Evarybody, including Mr.  Traill and Lady Margaret, had arranged to turn up at the north-country  mansion In May. Provided there were  no hurricanes, Sir Stephen thought  his wife's health would benefit by the  double sea voyage and he was personally delighted to see tbe New World  for the first time In her company.  Their steamer sailed from Southampton at 11 a.m. After dinner that  night they were abreast of the Gulf  Rock, and Brand pointed Out to his  wife Its occulting gleam from afar.  "It makes me feel very humble," she  ���������aid, after they had watched Its radiance darting out over the tumbling  seas for a long time In silence.  "Why, sweetheart?" be asked.  "It Is so solemn, so Intense In Its  energy, so splendidly devoted to Its  Single purpose."  "Nitw, It Is an odd thing," he replied,  as watchful to check her occasional  Sualme of retrospect as he had been  uring many a long night-to keep that  same light at Its normal state ot clear-  eyed brilliance, "but It does not appeal to me In that way. It Is winking  portentously, as much as to say, 'You  old humbug, there you are. leaving me  after all these years, and running away  with your own wife.'"

She seemed to be quite hopeless, resigned to any twist or turn of fate.  Here was a broken woman, indeed,  and the spectacle was torturing. He  had never understood her as a bright  young girl and a bride of nineteen. He  lid not understand her now.

The year which has just closed  shows most gratifying results for the  Woman's Guild of Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church, as was read in their  annual report by the secretary, Mrs. J.  M. Robertson, at their last meeting!  This society, under the able presidency  of Mrs. W. H. Steeves, has every one  of its 70 members in active work on  one or more of its committees. The  sick committee, th9 floral committee,  the relief committee, the musical committee, the delegates to Local Council  of Women, to the Children's Home,  and the Alexandra Orphanage, all have  their duties allotted to them, and have  done excellent work throughout the  year.  This society, as is already known, is  paying for the fine organ in the church  Inimical to the best interest of the  Empire.'  The question is often asked, "What  about the treaty between Great Britain  and. Japan ? If you raise this .question  now, is there not danger of international complications?" Our reply is,  that undoubtedly, there is a danger of  raising a question which may demand  the skill of our diplomats to "deal with,  but we gp further .and assert, that, in  our opinion the-Japanese Government  has no right, whatever, to claim the application of this" treaty to the question  of pur regulations on immigration, for  leveral reasons; first, because the  whole question is forced to an issue by  the wholesale perjury of the Japanese,  in that they apply for and obtain citizenship in Canada and still retain their  allegiance to Japan. It is wittingly  and deliberately done. They become  Canadian ettizent solely to secure commercial advantage, and the bulk of  those, so doing act a lie when they do  it, because, as stated, they still claim  the right of protection of the Japanese  Government, even to. the extent ot securing the attention of Downing street.  If these men are British subjects  subdivision. Mr. Frank Pickles, ofithey are no longer subjects of the  Twentieth avenue, will assume the re-j Mikado, arid consequently, His Royal  sponsibilities of ward superintendent j Highness can claim no further interest  in them, nor can he, or his government,  demand the exercise of the terms of  the treaty in their behalf. If they do  not become citizens, then Japan has  no right to interfere in the running of  our affairs. It we wish to withhold our  natural resources, such as fish, timber,  mines, land, etc., from nil; except  native born or naturalized citizens,  what right h������s the Mikado to interfere? If we should decide that Orientals are not desirable immigrants, and  we make such regulations as will support that vtew������ by what right can any  other nation Interfere?  If we allow the argument of the  "Treaty'' to Influence us, we will find,  in the course of a very few years, that  there will be a solid Japanese vote  capable of deciding any election in the  Pacific Coast province with the result  that our western policy will be dictated  by Japan, because these Japanese voters will still be loving subjects of the  Mikado.  We are Just ten years too late In  facing this question. Then It was simple, but thanks to the absolute breach  of faith on the part of the Federal Authorities with the West, and the insane  action of Sir Wilfred's Cabinet in accepting tbe Japanese Treaty in full,  when be was urged by Jos. Chamber  lain to reserve all rights re immigration, we are today faced with a question that is complicated because of the  "interests" involved. It must be faced  and now .is the opportunity for the people of the West to present this whole  question at Ottawa so that it will receive the consideration which the seriousness of the situation demands.  This is no time to discuss academic  questions of foreign diplomacy with  Downing street, but it is a question,  as far as London is concerned, of  ."Canada or Japan, take your choice."  Or, as far as Ottawa is concerned,  "British Columbia or Japan."

CANADIAN   EXPORT8 OF  MANUFACTURED PULP, 1910.  Canada's export trade of wood pulp  is increasing annually and during 1910  amounted In value to five million, seven hundred thousand dollars, according  to information furnished to the Dominion Forestry Branch by tbe Department of Trade and Commerce. The  three hundred and twenty-nine thousand tons of pulp exported was an increase of forty-eight thousand tons  over the amount shipped in 1909. Wood  pulp exportations in 1910 amounted to  seventy per cent of the total produced  in Canada, whereas in 1909 the proportion was only sixty-three per cent  Eighty-eight per cent of the export was  mechanical pulp and the remaining  twelve per cent was chemical pulp.  During 1910, over three-quarters of the  pulp exported went to the United  States, while shipments to nearly all  other countries decreased. The United  Kingdom takes most of the remaining  one-quarter, although exports to these  countries have fallen off greatly. Particularly Is this so with chemical pulp,  not one-seventh the amount being  shipped in 1910 as in 1909. The average value per ton of the pulp exported  in 1909 was $14.67 for the mechanical  and $36.35 for the chemical pulp. This  is a combined average of $17.31 or 14  cents less per ton than for the previous year. The prices paid to Canadian exporters by the various importing countries were per ton for mechanical pulp: United States $16.09, or  exactly the same as in 1909, and United  Kingdom $15.72, or $5.52 more. For  chemical pulp, the amounts paid were  United States, $36.42 per ton, and United Kingdom, $41.60 per ton.
