We  . think of this territory almost solely as a gold pro-  I'ducer.   But whilst her gold production'seems to  ,be on the point of another great enhancement���������  this is but a bagatelle when compared with her  other mineral deposits.  The famous Bonanza mine, belonging to the  11 > Guggenheims, is producing copper,  principally-  chalcocite, that carries values up to 35 and 40  per cent.   In 1912 nearly $5,000,000 was the value  of Alaska's copper output, but new development  [V1 Work is being done in 4 or 5 districts, and with (  the coming railroad facilities the output will be /  greatly increased. t \  Alaska's greatest wealth, however, lies in her  still untouched coal fields.  The head of the U. S. Geological, survey in  Alaska has estimated the discovered coal territory  to contain a minimum of 150,000 million tons.  1 Yet since 1907,' until our recent strike, Alaska  imported all Jier coal from British Columbia���������,  .about 120,000 tons ayear.  It is most likely that the anthracite fields'of  the Bering river will be tapped first.  It was here  Lthat the U. S. battle cruiser Maryland made her *  ��������� coal experiments last season-  The Bering river coal field lies about 26 miles  from tidewater. The railroad would be practically straight, with a slight grade favoring the  coal haul, to proposed docks on Controller bay.  That this year will see great things, happening in  Alaska is assured by the enormous grant made by  Congress last month-  Vancouver has a specific interest in the opening up of Controller bay, for a great deal of Vancouver and Victoria money has gone into the  development of the oil field that lies to the north  and east of Controller bay.  The dredging and, buoying of a sufficient  channel, the building of a railroad and the resulting increase of communication and transport  will greatly facilitate the opening up of the new  oil field and hasten the day when Vancouver  capital will receive a return for money expended.  Just where the railroad will strike- into" the-  interior of Alaska is not yet at all certain.  It is probable that the existing roads will be  taken over by the U. S. Government, in which  case Cordova will be the Coast terminus for the  ore shipments from the Wrangel range copper  regions. From this point the Copper Biver and  Northwestern Railroad has built, and is  operating a road ��������� already famous in ro-  , mance .��������� to Kennicott and Bonanza, with its  present terminus at McCarthv. Here the trail  starts over the death dealing Scolai pass into the  new placer camp at Shushana. The continuation  of this line from Chitina to Fairbanks is practii  cally assured. But whether a way can be found  with practical railroad grade over into the White  River district from McCarthy and thence to Dawson, is still unknown.  If practical, it will give the Skagway-White-  horse route an awful shake and make more imperative than ever an all Canadian R. R. through  British Columbia into the Yukon.  ��������� British Columbia is going to have a live  neighbor this year���������killed by the Roosevelt-Pin-  ������hot conservation policy���������resurrected by the Wilson-Bryan treatment.   We must keep awake.  THE SHUSHANA  The following statements as regards the new  Placer Diggings are being circulated and vouched  j'fpr by the Chamber of Commerce of Cordova,  'Alaska.   ..      ���������  The district is known to be gold-bearing over  an area of 50 miles square and has been so reported by the United States and Canadian geological surveys.  Gold has been found in paying quantities on  12 claims on Bonanza, two elaims on Litle Eldorado, one claim on Big Eldorado, one  claim on  ^Glacier, one^ claim on Snow Guleh, one claim on  (Continued on page eight)       .  t  3*  J  X  T  f  T  PRO-CONSULS   IN  THE   LIMELIGHT        j  L        - * "' %  ��������������� Attorney-General Bowser  &4^,'M',M'fl'H<4''H'*H������M'<'M"H''M''H'^^  Genera! Bdtiw on Top  General Botha is a bad roan to tackle. The South African labor leaders have found it out.  The labor movement is a necessary evil. Evil because it adds one more to the "sects'* or "castes"  or "ideas" dividing the human race; but necessary and in so far good because it tends to amelor-  iate the fortunes of those who are doing perhaps the roughest part of this earthly work. The  true laborer and labor movement must have and has the sympathetic* love of all right thinking  men and women���������but when the lal>or leaders or laborers taka up the bomb, as has been so amply  proved against him in the U. S. or the revolutionary coup d'etat as was planned in South Africa���������  and rumor has it also in British Columbia, then the ordinary Celto-Saxon that for a thousand  years and more has resolutely fought the battle of constitutional methods as against tyranny is  glad when a Botha or a Bowser steps out and calls a halt.  Governor Gladstone has already signified his approval of General Botha's acts���������the South African parliament has,.by a tremendous majority, refused to hamper the executive in this matter,  and the British* government, held in power largely by tbe British labor, refuses to interfere in  any way, accordjng to latest dispatches, no matter what may be the political outcome at home.  Truly, it may be said Secretary Bain and comrades were hoisted with their own petard. Oh! for  a Botha to handle our Sylvia.  South Vancouver  The people have willed it and by their votes made it possible���������so ail good citizens must  fall in line, as South Vancouver, like other parts of this Dominion is under the majority rule. The  new council has proved itself a master in swinging the axe���������but any fool can destroy. It is their  constructive policy that must count and by which they will ultimately be judged.  South Vancouver is probably the second  Certainly and without competition it is the third.  'city" of the Province in white population.  It demands competents to handle its affairs, and ought to pay them. Every one will approve of the movement made to enhance the sums paid to reeve and councillors. Also every move  made towards economy will be approved providing efficiency of staff is not abated.   '  . . No. doubt can exist in any voter's mind that the main cause of the overthrow of the Kerr  administration was the contract made for the paving of Main street without previously calling  for tenders.   And yet we are not at all sure that this'contract wa3 not good business.  To our mind the best piece of advertising and the best stroke of business South Vancouver has ever done was the paving of Kingsway. We understand that since the opening of  Kingsway the truck haulage along Kingsway has increased so much that the B. C. Electric have  taken off two freight cars a day between Westminster and Vancouver. We do not wish the B.  C. Electric anything but good, and yet we feel that South Vancouver is not interested in increasing, the B. C. Electric dividends as much as she is in increasing the facilities of traffic for  her own people. The freight tariff on this inter-urban line is simply enormous in its price, and  yery much below par in its service. : ^w*������������*i^^  What has been true as regards the district served by Kingsway will also be true of that  served by Main street. There is not one single street crossing, in South Vancouver from South  to North on which hauling can profitably be done. Before the financial hold-up all South Vancouver was calling loudly for permanent road work. It is as ^ needful now as ever. It must be  done some day. The financial clouds have lifted. Jim Hill declares there is "not a cloud in sight,"  and every one knows that "Jim" is a prophet. We recognize the mandate from the electors to  the present council���������they are absolutely within their rights as men responsible to their voters  ���������but the contract has been made and we would suggest that it be treated on its merits. The  present council, is now in possession of all the facts. If the price1 is exorbitant and the deal  shows signs of graft fight it to the death, and expose all the fact3. If not���������if the price���������in  view of conditions and grading and class of work promised is not exorbitant���������if the guarantees;���������  as published, are sufficient, is it not better to let the work go on rather than fight an expensive  law suit, and probably lose. The municipality nee'ds one permanently paved cross street at  once.. It cannot grow and do business without it. We have no brief for the Carbolineum works,  and do not know the inside facts of the case. But Ave do know that the work needs to be done���������  that if we are to go on as a "City" and grow we must have passable roads and streets, and we  call upon the council to either show cause, so that all can understand, or go on with the necessary  work.   ������������������':���������-  Trout Lake Frozen Over in One Night  >    Thursday afternoon and evening many people enjoyed skating on Trout Lake which  seemed in good hearty condition after one night's frost���������almost a record pe believe.  A BUSINESS COUNCIL  Quite - Alert - Sensible  A BODY "OF WOHKEBS    ?  (Prof. E. Odium: ML A., B.8c.)'    -  It is evident that the 1924 council is made up  of men who are ready to work without striving. ,  to use many words'to capture the gallery votenf. -  In a quiet, sensible, forceful manner, the  mayor and his council meet, do their work and  separate as if business is and has been their  theme "from youth up" to the present time.   '  Another thing is clearly manifest.   These men  ���������  have no hidden strings holding, them in leash.  They act and speak like free men, "Such aa the  truth makes free." '  In a few weeks this council will begin the  usual annual struggle with'the assessment, the  rate of taxation, the question of improvements,  the department expenses and the unlimited claims  on the income, whatever it may be as the-result .r  of the cleverest ingenuity. >  The assessment might well, be gradually- increased, but the" rate should stay at its old places .  to great advantage.  ,The tax results are> practically the same from low assessment and "a high *  rate as from a low rate and a high assessment. -  The former has the, better appearance, and is leas  difficult of handling. -   ��������� '   - ~  There should be a graded scale of charges ,  , fixed for high and expensive buildings which aa  rapidly increase the fire-fighting costs to the  city. The very tall buildings are a special charge  upon the city's purse for protecttion against fire.  Moreover, the income is somewhat out of proportion compared with the average good structure, when the buildings and grounds are considered.  Perhaps all buildings under $6,000 should go  free of taxation, and all over that figure should  be taxed to some limited and graded extent. Tbis ^  is worth a study or two by the men who are re-,  sponsible for the best measures of income finance  for tbe city.  tr  t j 1  f,-. C  FWEJTOSBJP-A *OON JWYCWP 00M?ABJ5.  Castor and Pollux, emerging from historic mythology, and from Biblical story David and Jonathan appearing, encircled in all the charms of a  pure friendship, may well be a lesson to us in  these modern days.  Castor was slain, and his friend Pollux did  not care to live without his long time, well tried  friend,, he thought it better to depart to tbe other  world in which he could share immortality with  , Castor, by the direct favor of Jupiter.  Jonathan so loved his friend David that he  voluntarily gave up his throne, or his right to  the throne, to the famous giant killer.  What would not a true man do today for a  friend, with a noble unselfish nature? How often  we seem to imagine that there is no selfish friendship in this modern, hard, matter-of-fact world.  The writer has often studied this phase of human life, and has come to the conclusion that this  priceless boon can yet be found among the child,-  ren of earth-born men. To those who have  friends, well and truly tried, I would say let  nothing sever your friendship. Let not mortal  man, or circumstances of ady sort carry from  your favor and affection, the one who has proved  a real'and abiding worth. Friendship has a value  far beyond that of rubies or the* sparkling diamond. I have had many years of human testing  and have had hosts of what may be called everyday friends. These are good and have a value of  a high order, but the friendship that will sacrifice daily and always without a murmur for a  friend is not equalled on earth by any other affection, not even love as usually understood. I  would rather hold my best and choicest friend  than great riches.   Such friendship is soul life!  THE CITY HAS COMPLETED ITS CONTRACT  Here is the standing of the Expropriation Proceedings between the city and the property owners. By contract the city had. to institute and  complete an expropriation process, so so as to'secure the False creek property for qublic use.  (Continued on page eight).  ^ >  _r>  *i  I  r-1 mm

At the Moody Bible Institute, Chicago, February
24-27, 1914.
To Christian Believers in trie United States and
Canada:���
Dear Brthren���
It is twelve years since the International Prophetic Conference was held in the City of Boston,
and many brethren feel that the times demand
' another testimony to the doctrine of the premil-
lennial coming of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus
Christ. We, therefore, cordially and urgently
invite you to meet with us and others for this
holy purpose, at the Moody Bible Institute, Chicago, HI., from Tuesday to Friday, February 24th
to 27th, 1914.
It is believed that the signers of this invitation are a guarantee that the conference will not
offer an opportunity for modern prophets to ventilate their speculations, to fix dates, or to mark
out a detailed program of the future; but that,
to incorporate the language of an earlier conference, the occasion will be used for students of
prophecy to give prominence to neglected truths; /
to employ the true principles of Scripture interpretation; to warn against present day apostacy;
to awaken slumbering Christians; to present tho
most majestic of all motives for world-wide evangelism; to call attention to the doctrine of "last
things" as a bulwark against the skepticism of
modern theology; and to bring into closer fellowship all those who "love His appearing."
To those sufficiently interested to address a
postaLcard to The Moody Bible Institute, there
y/ill ue mailed in ample time, free of cost, a leaf>
' let containing further inforination as to prograu.
names of speakers, and-details as to boarding accommodations. As to the last named, the Institute will endeavor to entertain as large a company as posible at minimum rates, but to obtain
this accommodation if will be necessary to write
������/early. :���'; i'"":.... ;���.;���:";������;   \,\/y;.  ��� -\"7
Trusting that the Conference may witness an
unusual gathering of tne Lord's people and an
unusual outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon
them; and seeking your prayers for the Heavenly
guidance of those .who are responisble for its promotion and conduct, we remain, in Christian affection, ' ���

Once I asked a minister if he had heard a
certain adverse, thing about another man. He
replied, "No, I hadn't heard that, but I heard
this about him the other day;''' and, he told me
me a perfectly delightful story of some fine trait
In the man." Though" I fear the thing which I"was
inquiring about may be true, I cannot find myself much interested in it because of the better
thing which I know is true, and which goes far
to offset .the evil.���Cieland B. McAffee.

Home Rule for Ireland.
- Canadians who are foolish enough to favor the
present scheme of Irish Home Rule should read
Mazzini Minor's Booklet on "B;ome Rule for Ireland." If any man can ?ead this production and
then favor Asquith's Bill, he must be very obtuse,
or ignorant, or a hater of the Empire and Protestantism.
It isthebest and strongest argument produced
against the Bill which'Premier Asquith is presenting to the Westminster Parliament, at the command of the traitorous Redmondites and other
Irish Nationalists, who are in turn the helpless, instruments of the Italian combination of Cardinals
and. other, British haters within and without the
bounds of Britannia.
This booklet can be had in Thomson's Book
Store and other book shops in Vancouver for the
sum of twenty-five cents. The author is a British
Columbian, of high scholarship, and one of the
best-travelled gentlemen in Vancouver.	
While glancing over the results of
the dairy herd competition given at
the recent dairy convention, one could
not help being struck by the yields
���7,317 pounds of milk; 214 pounds
of fat per cow.
During  the. same   session   a  chart
was   displayed   indicating  that   some
Idairy farms are producing very little
milk, one was listed giving a yield of
only 125 pounds of milk per acre.
With a, dairy farm.growing corn,
oats clover and alfalfa, and having
pretty good pasture, it should notJbe
very difficult to produce 2,000 pounds
of milk per acre, and at the same time
increase the fertility of the soil. This
system should yield an income of
over thirty dollars per acre instead'
of the insignificent average' of five
dollars and seventy-nine cents, which
was the average yield per acre cultivated including pasture given of.
ficially as the average return from
five thousand cows in Ontario. The
acres need not be idle more-than the
cows; are yours just common acres,'
or dairy acres?
The herd will average up better if
the poor cows are weeded out. Do
you know fqr certain which they are?
-You can easily detect theha if you
keep records on forms supplied free
by the dairy division, Ottawa. State
in your letter if you want forms for
weighing every day,i or only on three
days per month.' Is there any good
reason why your cows should not
average at least six thousand pounds
of milk? Many men are getting this,
and more, but they don't do it until
they keep records and know which
cows .should be kept and which should
not. C. F. W.

The following statements by a
writer in The London Times may be
of interest and perhaps some value to
those of us fortunate enough in, these
days when even fresh eggs are a
luxury, to have any spare cash for
furs. ' The durability of furs varies
enormously, and has little relation to
pjice. For example, ermine and chinchilla, both of which fall in the rare
fur class, stand respectively at 25 and
IS in a table where skunk is 70 and
beaver 90. In this table sea otter,
fwith its water hairs, is taken at 100.
Here is the list in full:

The durability- of furs is reduced
by artificial coloring. The baum mar-
fen, which in a natural state stands
at 65, in the table is only 45 after
tinting. The amount of fur needed
for a half-length coat of average girth
is sixteen square feet; for a full-length
motor coat ewenty-seven square feet
is required.

The -largest lake on the east slope
of the Rocky mountains-lies at the
head, waters of the Maligne river, a
tributary of the Athabaska. It is
twenty-two miles long and from one
to three miles wide, and is'.surrounded by lofty mountains which make it
one of the most beautiful spots in
the Rocky mountain region. Yet
this lake was practically unknown uriV
til a -forest survey was made of this
region last summer by the Dominion
Forestry branch. Unfortunately,
there are no fish in this lake, owing
probably x to the fact, that the Mai

For Sale and  For Rent*  Cards  iOceach 3 for 25c  GOLD MEDALS AT EVERY EXHIBIT  Grand Forks, B. C.���������A fresh impetus is being given to the fruit growing industry of the Boundary district  by the report just brought back from  England by Deputy Minister W. E.  Scott of, the provincial department  of Agriculture. Mr. Scott states  that for the first time since British  Columbia commenced sending apples  to Old Country exhibitions the province has won gold medals at every  show where any medals at all were  awarded for fruit.  '"I am delighted with our success,"  says Mr. Scott. "Great interest was  taken in the'fruit, and a host of papers published views of the apple-display. This publicity should do us a  lot of good. -It is my opinion that the  results to come from staging fruit  exhibits in England will be important; and the interest in British Columbia which I saw manifested everywhere is a good augury for future  immigration, particularly to our agricultural sections." It is noted that  the Grand Forks fruit district, a valley some ten miles long by five wide,  produced fully half of the total fruit  crop of British Columbia for 1913.  that no legislation will stop the use  of cigarettes if permission is not refused to manufacture and import.  Richard Blain, of Peel, a few years  ago moved for similar legislation, but  his intentions did not crystalize into  law. Mr. Broder, however, believes  that legislation along the lines proposed is not only desirable but  feasible.

CAR  Motor cars are now so numerous that it is  fast becoming an expert trick to cross a street  without being run over.  In New York last year the auto victims numbered 302, of whom 149 were children. To this  awful toll of death must be added 1,212 injured,  many of them crippled for life. And there were  many more slight injuries which did not get into  the police records.   , '  i Place a young fellow at the steering wheel of  an auto, and, whether drunk or not, his head  swells so that he cannot see an ordinary pedestrian ten feet ahead of him.  Fines have failed to check homicide by automobile, so now the police authorities and the  courts are talking about adopting severer punishments.  Imprisonment for the driver, and confiscation  of the car, are thought by some to be about the  right penalty.  In many cities the death list is growing so fast  that the responsibility can no longer be dodged  safely. ^    -\  Severe penalties would not be an injustice to  careful chauffeurs, and they are much needed to  restrain the other kind.  No man has any better right to kill or maim  a human being by. an auto than he has by_ another  process.  "Thou shalt not kill.''  Despite the great utility and evident permanency, the auto is ah engine of death more effective and dangerous than a revolver, and the time  has come for careful scrutiny as,to the capacity  and trustworthiness of those who are permitted  to operate them, \     v  Neither drunkenness nor imbicility is "a good  excuse for an auto crime.

This paper which  is published monthly, is devoted to  the industry and sport of fishing, the  use and value, of fish products. The  paper is edited by Mr. F. William  Wallace, probably the best known  living short story writer of fishing  and seafaring life. Mr. Wallace has  fished all up and down our coasts,  knows the fishermen, speaks their  language, sympathizes with them in  their struggles, and has thoroughly  identified himself with their work.  He has a big field to exploit, but we  are confident that he will "make  good."  The time seems most opportune for  the establishment of a Journal devoted  entirely    to ' the    fishing    industry, hatcheries on the Great Lakes and hy  Heretofore    fishing    and    fishermen! restrictive   legislation   in   regard   to  -lobster fishing on the coast. It is  admitted by everyone that the industry  is capable of much greater expansion and we confidently predict that  this will occur under the leadership of  the "Canadia Fisherman" and its  able editor.���������Journal of Commerce,  Montreal.  were treated as a side issue, and had  no journal in which their sentiments  could be voiced and the importance of  their work kept before the public.  That the industry is a large and important one is seen from government  figures. Today, there are 100,000  men and boys engaged in the fishing  industry, while the annual catch is  valued at nearly $35,000,000. Thfe  amount of capital invested in boats  and other equipment exceeds $20,-  000,000. At the present time, the cost  of living, especially the rapidly increasing price of meat, is turning the  attention of people more and more  toward the consumption of fish, while  the removal of duty on fish entering  the United States has given n.n additional stimulus to the industry and  fishermen are receiving higher prices  for their catch than at any time in  their history. . The government is doing its full share in foresting the industry   by the   establishment  of  fisli  Calgary, Alberta: Plans are afoot  to make an appeal to the Mineral Department of Canada and to the Alberr  ta government to make a substantial  appropriation for a thorough research of the oil fields and conducting prospecting work.

NEWS OF THE DAY   I  MOVE FOR'ERADICATION OF THE',  CIGARETTE.  GIVES A MILLION,  FOR CHRISTIANITY  Wealthy Kansas City Lumberman  Heads List of Contributors.  St. Louie, Feb. 3.���������A belief that tbe  "Men and Millions" movement, wbich  was form ally put afoot here Tuesday  by the Disciples of Christ Church, will  lead to the christianising of the world,  was expressed this morning by R. A.  Long, wealthy lumberman of Kansas  City, wbo started the movement with  a $1,000,000 donation.  He spoke to the committee of one  hundred composed of missionaries,  college presidents and church workers on the subject, "The Story of My  Gift."  Mr. Long predicted that the camp-sign of the Christian Church to raise  $6,000,000 -would create a rivalry  among other churches such as would  lead to astounding missionary results.  He was influenced in making the gift  of n 000,000, he said, mainly by a desire to help the college churches,  whore young missionary workero are  educated.  The committee will be in session  here today and tomorrow, planning a  campaign for raising the $5,000,000  balance necessary to complete a fund  for missionary, educational and charit-  ir'e pruposes.

It is, therefore,  his intention at an early date to move  for legislation which will prevent the  manufacture, importation or sale of  that form of smoking.  Mr. Broder believes in striking at  the root, of an evil, and he is/aware  that no legislation will stop the use  of cigarettes if permission is not refused to manufacture and "import.  Richard Bain of Peel, a few years ago  moved for similar legislation but tils  Intentions did not crystalize into law.

There followed then a moment of  silence between us, while I selected  a cigarette and lighted It. She had  edged her chair a little closer to me  ���������she was sitting on my right, as usual���������and leaned forward, her slender but divinely rounded forearms extended across tbe shining damask of  'the tablecloth.  As I dropped my match upon the  tiny silver tray wbich the Inimitable  Checkabeedy had placed conveniently at my elbow I turned to her and  aaw her question in her imploring  gaze and attitude even before she  voiced it.  "Tell me!" was what she said. And  although I knew that she would-demand it I was unprepared. To gain  time rather than information I bade  her be more explicit.  ��������� "Everything," she "pursued, inclusively, with a peremptory emphasis  which Indicated her determination not  to be'denied.  ' JiLy hesitation resulted in. some am-  IpUflcatlon on hers part. She was ijn-  patient as well as resolved, and re-  ���������sented what she Interpreted as my re?  Iluctance to gratify her.  ��������� "Everything," she repeated. "Everything that you have been hiding  . from me from the first. I am entitled  to know.

What was  it that caused the shocks which  brought on Uncle Robert's illness?  !"Why did you go for the mail lour  times today, and sit all the rest of the  , itime In Uncle Robert's.study?

She  knew ,ioo much not to know , more.  'Cameron's wishes ln the matter could  " no longer be regarded.' Just -how  'tactfully I managed the disclosure, it  is not for me to Judge.

And yet, as nearly every feature of the affair was of necessity  alarming, it became a vexing problem  as to .what to include and what to  omit.  Eventually she   heard   the   whole  ^ story, every phase of it.   And so' It is  ' not altogether clear in my memory  how much 1 conveyed that night and  how much was left for me to add ten  days later.

It  may be that I was not well-balanced  .and iclear-headed. And yet the .sequel would tend rather to a^ contrary  conclusion.  Cameron was still reading the Herald, and I sat with a pair of binoculars at my eyes sweeping the waters  tor the trailing smoke of a liner or  some object of lesser interest.  .'

"It does seem a bit odd, Mr: Clyde,"  he returned, judicially, "but you see  his mast and sail had gone by the  board and his oars, too. It looks to  me, sir, as if he'd been run down, maybe, anfl nigh swamped. Of course we  can't tell till he gets his, senses and  lets us know." ^  Though this put the matter in a  new light, it did not by any means relieve my anxiety; and I asked MacLeod to have a sharp .watch kept on  ihama on one side, and Srtnagar, in   *e *eIlowi addins thatJ would come  CHAPTER VIII.  6omewhere East of Nantucket. -  The Sibylla under stress of her  powerful turbines was racing easily,  reeling off her thirty knotB with no  seeming effort and scarcely a perceptible vibration.

It was wonderful weather  for late October. On the nineteenth  tbe temperature bad risen to-ninety  in New York, breaking all records  for; that date; and now, two days  later, here at the meeting ot sound  and ocean, with Point Judith just  coming into view over our port bow,  and Block Island a blur abaft our  starboard beam, we sat, Cameron and  Kashmir, on the other."  "You've seen something of them in  this country, I suppose?"  ".No, very little. I attended a dinger once at which Li Hung Chang was  the guest of honor; and I've eaten  chop suey^in one of those Chinese  eating palaces they have in Chicago.

I took care, too, to caution him  to make no mention of the affair in  the presence of Cameron.  It was not until after dinner that  evening that I found opportunity again  to question the captain. I came upon  him in his stateroom, a comfortably  commodious cabin, far forward on the  upper deck. On his table was spread  a chart, over which he was bending  when I entered. A briarwood was  gripped firmly between his teeth and  the grateful odor of clean pipe smoke  greeted me as I entered.  "He's come around, Mr. CJyde," he  informed me, turning, about in his  swivel chair, "and I'm just trying to  check up some of his statements by  means of /his chart here, and our  weather record."  "And how do they check so far?"  I asljced, a' little dubiously.  "Quite to a dot, sir," was ,his answer. "There's no breakdown anywhere, so far.' According to his story,  he sailed out of Gloucester harbor on  Monday morning. His name's Peter  Johnson, and. he lives in East Gloucester. He says the wind was strong from  the westward, and he made the banks  all right without mishap. But about  noon, the wind died, and a thick fog  came in from the northeast, chill and  sopping, sir. He kept moving about,  and finally in tbe thick of it lost his  bearings. It had clouded over and  after a little it began to rain. ,He  made a try for Gloucester harbor, but  must have sailed southeast instead of  northwest. Then the night came  down, and the fog was like a dozen  blankets; he says. His food was gone  and most of bis water, but. be said  he'd seen worse than that many a  time, and just prayed for the. fog to  lift and give him a sight of the stars.  watching tfs* moon slide slowly, below  the dark horizon line. Our chairs were  close together, facing the lee rail; his  the farther astern. We talked of  many things, I remember. He was always interested in my work, and especially in my* ambitions to make The  Week a power, for national good; and,  I remember that we discussed several  projects I then had in mind for bringing about reform in high places. But  the subject which then interested me  most, and regarding which I still experienced a vague, unreasoning uneasiness, he had avoided throughout the  day and evening, with what seemed  to me studied intent. '  The sudden cessation of hostilities  on" the part of those whom he had  been gjven every reason to look upon  as his implacable enemies, was certainly strange enough to have invited  endless debate; and I marveled that,  iafter having accepted my falsehood  as truth, he bad not chosen to go over  with me the whole maryelously per-:  plexing business.  His mind, I' knew, was relieved' by  what I had made him believe, or he  would not now be the man he was;'  but despite that, it appeared to me,  it would be most natural for him, on  this day of all days-^the' twenty-first  of the month���������to question, at least,  my'previously' emphatically stated  conclusions.  There had been a moment of silence  between us, and these reflections were  [dominant with me, as six bells, ring-  ling out musically, announced- that  (midnight was but an hour distant. At  that instant, while in time to the  Ibell's strokes, there echoed in my  Ibrain the words: "Know then, that be-  jfore the morning of the eighth day  jbence���������" Cameron, lowering his ci-  jgar, turned to me with:  1 "Clyde, I wonder if you have for-  jgotten what day this is!"  { I don't know why, coming at JuBt  that particular juncture, the question  should be more upsetting than if it  bad come at some-other time of day,  but I know it seemed so to me.  For a little space my tongue refused  Its office. There was a lump in my  throat which demanded to be swallowed, and I made a pretence of  coughing to hide my plight. At length  I answered, a hit lamely:  "No, , I haven't forgotten. It's  Wednesday, the twenty-first of October."  He returned bis cigar to his lips and  smoked ln silence for a full minute.  Then, he said, quietly:  "It's seven days since that empty  envelope came."  "Yes," I returned.  There was another slight pause and  be went on:  "I have been thinking that possibly;  you were wrong about tbe significance'  of that empty envelope. Possibly  those enigmatical persons intended'  that absence of a definite threat to;  imply the inconceivably terrible."  Now that he bad started to" talk  about it, I wished that be had continued bis silence. I could not understand bow I had convinced him before, knowing all the while that I was.  without truth to support me. Certainly, now, pervaded as I was with  that grim disquietude, it would be  even more difficult to carry conviction  with my words.  "Whatever they intended," I ventured, yielding a fraction of a point,  "It'seems to me that they'll have some  difficulty in carrying it out. There  are no portraits here to mutilate and  no mirrors to smash. For the previous performances there must be some  more or less- simple explanation.  Neither you nor I believe in the supernatural; therefore the things that  determined to go to my cabin for a j  night' glass   which   I   had included"  among my traps.   But at that moment  the sound, which I had made sure of,  ceased, and I stood a second or two  'longer, expecting it to resume.  Altogether it was not over a minute  'or two that I stood there.*" It seemed  much les3 than that. Then I turned  with a question for Cameron. 1 wondered whether^ he had heard the sound'  too. /  "I say, Cam���������" I began, and stopped, ]  'startled, .with his name half uttered.  His chair was empty. He was not  on deck. I ran to the saloon. He was |  not there. I flung open the door of]  his stateroom. He was not there, ei-1  ther. I had the yacht searched for]  him.   He was not on the yacht.  CHAPTER IX.  .,..    A Graft Without Lights.  Composure is second nature  with.,]  me.

It bad become an edict  of grave significance.   And what fol-  the speaker. His mind was .placid  once again, and with this recovered  placidity had come a return of bis  quiet humor. For my own part I  was not altogether happy. My delight over my friend's recovery, and  Evelyn's pleasure thereat, was curdled by self-reproach regarding the  instrument I had employed to bring  It about. A lie is to me a most contemptible agent, and to make'use of  one has been always abhorrent In  v this instance I had   salved   my con-  lowed only emphasized tbe proven science In a measure with tbe old ex-  force behind this series of singular caee that the end justified the means,  communications. but It was only in si measure, and I  "All having been performed as fore- waB jw fr0m b^g M happy as I  told, our power is demonstrated."        pretended.  Then, simply, almost crudely, but, j    Moreover, I could not rid myself of  of horrid poignancy, ran the words:  "Know then, that before the morning of the Eighth Bay hence, as passed  (of men  '   Asl  Ithe face from the portrait, as passed  ithe reflection from the mirror, so  tyou, physically, will pass from sight  men into torment."  read my breath caught in my  ithroat and my pulses paused. Evelyn  ipressed closer to my side, and I felt  'her shiver as with cold. The final  [words, solemn, admonitory, priest-,  like, were these:  "Say not Heaven is high above!  JReaven ascends and descends about  lour deeds, dally inspecting us, where-  jaoerer we are."  Instantly she turned to me, and I  there were tears on her cheeks,  and that her long dark lashes were  wet.  ���������Ton cannot tell him this, Philip,"  {���������he said, her voice low hut unfalter-  iing;.  ^No," I replied, "I cannot tell him.  fc. his present condition, it might be  an uneasiness���������a misery, indeed, in,  which I was now without company-  concerning the day and its menace. I  say "without company," for Cameron, of course, had quite dismissed the  subject, and Evelyn; who previously  was greatly perturbed, had seemed to  put away all apprehension directly  ���������he saw us safe aboard the yacht.  There had been some talk of her accompanying us, but without signifying my real reason, I had managed  to dissuade her."  For my disquietude there was certainly no logical ground. I had taken the precaution: of having the  Sibylla searched from masthead to  keelson before sailing. The coal was  (examined as carefully as that of a battleship in time of war; every locker  'and cupboard was inspected; even the<  Ventilators were metaphorically turn-  preparing to pick up our find.  The engine room had been signaled  half-speed ahead, and already a sailor  with a coil of rope in hand was stationed at the forward gangway. I  have frequently, seen river pilots make,  landings that were marvels of clever  calculation, but I never saw any steering more accurately gauged than that,  by which MacLeod, here in the open;  sea,, with the precarious swell and,  surge of ocean to combat, brought the>  yacht gliding within a bare three;  inches of the rolling dory's bow.   v,  I was leaning over the rail as wei  'came thus upon the castaway, and'  saw clearly enough for just a moment!  the huddled creature In oilskins, silent)  and motionless in the stern, with  closed eyes and wet, dark hair mat-i  ted upon his forehead. Then a sailor,,  dropping lightly into the boat, shut  oft* my view for a little. There was  a whir of flung line; an exchange of  quick-spoken, and to me unintelligible/  words between the sailor in the dory <  and a sailor standing beside me on  the yacht's deck; and then, the line  was taut and straining, and the dory,,  which had sheered off astern, was,being brought- up slowly alongside.  Now, I realized for the first time  that our engines had Btopped and that,  save for the roll, we were almost stationary.  They  were  lifting   the   fisherman  ty straight. He'd been drifting about  for three'days when we picked him'  up and was half dead of thirst and  hunger. But he's come around better  than might be expected, and���������"  ���������   And then I interrupted him. '  "Three days without water?" I questioned.       '���������'<���������".  "And without food.   Yes, sir."  '���������When did he tell you this story!"  , "About six o'clock, sir."  "Could a starving man recover that  quickly?" _  "He might, sir," MacLeod answered.  "The average healthy man can go ten  days.-without food or drink."      -t  "What have You done with him?"  "He's in the seaman's quarters, for*  ���������ard, sir."      ,  "See that he's kept there, Mr. Mac-  Leod/r I told him." ITd feel better if  you put a watch on him tonight Tomorrow we~ll run in to-Gloucester and  look up Ms people and friends.'* ...  j f. "Very Mood,, sir." '���������"��������������������������� ';>:jr:~:r~''~::l'  I    "Thank you."  ' I thought of having a look at Peter  Johnson, myself, for I waB somewhat  curious to study that face again when  it was sentient, and had eyes open,  but on second thought I decided to  wait until morning. It seemed silly  to suspect, this "seemingly honest but  unfortunate fisherman.  . We had not been speeding so well  during the afternoon; there was some  aboard   when   Cameron,. at    length , trouble   reported 'from   the   engine  aroused by the unusual, strolled for-!  ward and joined me.  .  "There's your bit of wreckage," I observed, smiling.  "Poor  devil!" he  exclaimed,  aym-  He seems more dead  ed inside out and < the record of every man of the crew was looked into j pathetically,  with vigorous scrutiny. So I could see   than alive,  no loophole unguarded.   But the past j    "He's   breathing,   sir,"   announced  was an argument -which set logic at. Brandon, the first officer, "and    not  i much more.   We'll take  him  below.  room, and it was a question whether  we had ,made oyer fifteen knots an  hour since two o'clock. ._^l know that  at ten o'clock that night, when the  moon went down, we were somewhere  east of Nantucket, and directly in the  path of the transatlantic liners.

There's  not a man here, except that poor old  fisherman, that we don't know all and  everything about. So, I say, no matter what they planned; this'time they  are outwitted." And even as I saldi  it, I saw clearly before my vision  these words: "Say not Heaven is high  above! Heaven ascends and descends  about our deeds, daily inspecting us  wheresoever we are."  "Then you agree with met You*  think something may have been,  planned?" ."'"  "I wouldn't pretend to interpret  their symbolism," I answered evasive-'  ly.

This I hoped Was to he the end;  of the matter/for tonight at least; but;  presently he began to talk of those'  first two letters, to conjecture, to wonder, to dissect phrases, to dig out  subtleties' of meaning from euphemistic expressions. And then I knew that,  he bad every word memorised, just  as I had.  Seven bells had struck and we were  Still talking'. But now and then there  were pauses in our converse���������-intervals of silence of varying length���������during which I sat with my gaze stretching out over the black waters and my  hearing strained for any. unusual  sound. More than once,during the  evening I thought I had detected far  off the pounding note of 'a motor  boat's exhaust, but had put the notion  aside as too improbable for entertainment. Now, faintly, I seemed to hear  it again; not so distant^ but muffled.  I got up and stood close to the fall,  and listened with ear bent.

Mrs. J. R. Mackenzie of Port  Coquitlanv broke the customary bottle'of wine over her bows and christened the boat "Coquitlam City,"  whose name wilbnow be carried into  many ports of South America and the  West Indies, where she will be engaged in the lumber trade.  Successful Launch.  A short time after the hour set for  the launching of the boat began to  slide down the ways and, as she gracefully took the water, blasts from the  steamer Paystreak's whistle answered  the salvoes of cheers from those on  board and the crowds on shore. A  special channel had been dredged  out into the stream and she traveled  out into the wide Pitt beautifully, the  tide carrying her up stream some little distance before the anchor was let  go. On her stern was painted "Coquitlam City, Vancouver, B. C."  Mr. J. D. Shafner is the head of the  Coquitlam Shipbuilding and Marine  Railway Company, and he has had  the schooner under construction since  March of last year. Mi*. Shafner has  built" many similar boats in Nova  Scotia, and most of the shipwrights  who have been engaged on the "Coquitlam ������, City," were" especially  brought _>out from Nova Scotia.  Thirty men have been employed in  building her, and as many as fifty  skilled workmen have been engaged  at the yards, for the new Dominion  government snagboat is , also being  built there.  Built of Coquitlam Lumber.  The schooner has cost $70,000 to  build, and all the lumber which has  gone into her, except that of the keel  and the spars, was logged off St.  Mary's Heights, Coquitlam. She is  216 feet in length over all, witii 41  feet beam, 14 feet depth of hold, 17  draught of water, 900 tons is her registered tonnage, and she has' a lumber  capacity of 1,000,000 feet. She is  iron kneed and copper fastened  throughout, and all her iron work is  galvanized. A shaft tunnel 'and engine bed have been provided in case  auxiliary engines are put into 'her.  i    There  are   good  prospects  of  the  been president of one of our largest  universities to say, but nevertheless, I  (Bishop Fowler) believe it to be true,  that the schools and universities of  the Methodist Episcopal church belong more to the devil today than they  do to the church.'  "Speaking of the theological schools  of Methodism, Dr. Munhall says:  'Sad to relate, the most influential of  these schools are disloyal to the  Word of God and the doctrines of  Methodism and1 are therefore not entitled to the sympathy and support of  the church.'  "Bishop Ames, on - his deathbed,  said: 'I fear that our theological  schools will give us, trouble.' Alas,  too true! The theological schools  are playing havoc with Methodist  doctrine and revivals.  "The book shows that Boston, Garrett, Drew, and Iliff arc all dangerous  propositions and infected badly with  dangerous, destructive criticism. 'I  know scores of alumni,' says the doctor, 'of these schools who have taken  up with the decisive and destructive  things taught them, and not one of  them is a soul winner, as real, loyal  Methodists believe in soul-winning;  they do ont believe in revivals in any  real scriptural sense, and therefore  do not have them.'  "Touching the Book Concern, it is  obvious to all that no longer is there  attempt to keep the publications in  line with the- doctrines and teachings  of Methodism. On the other hand  books- of all possible kinds are published and sold. Losses on the Advocates and periodicals were reported at last General Conference to  be $212,502. These losses come out of  the  worn-out preachers fund.  '"We do not sell,'-said an 'ad' of  the Cincinnati M. E. Book Concern,  'merely religioul books, but every  sort.'"     "  The college authorities do not hesitate to permit the frivolities of the  ball room, or the disgraceful, lustful,  influence of the dance.

Ryan, the multi-millionaire of New  York and Virginia, has given the  money to erect a Catholic church in  New York, which will be conducted by,  a French Canadian order, the main  purpose of which will be fc> preserve  a bone of St. Anne as a relic and to  promote alleged miraculous 'cures by  its use. Mr. Ryan is plenty able toy  place a set of Saint Anne's bones in  every Catholic church in America,  and' establish a goodly number of,  Lourdes ~at convenient localities  where the faithful may resort'for the  far-famed cures of the Virgin Mary."

ANTONIO   BEL.ANG-ER,  Dated December 17th, 1913:  1-23-14   to   3-20-14,  The revenue from the forests of  British India"administered'by the Indian Forestry service, last year  amounted to over $14,000,000. The  cost of fire protection, tree planting  and administration generally, was  $8,000,000, leaving a net annual revenue of $6,000,000, which the forests  are able to produce continuously,  without depletion.  The "Great Divide" is sometimes a  very small affair in the Rocky mountains of Alberta and British Columbia. This summer a forest survey  party sent out by the Dominion For  estry branch, found that the headwaters of the Athabaska river in Alberta were separated only by a narrow strip of low lying land from the  waters of a lake in British Columbia  which drains into the Columbia river.  Were the outlet of this lake blocked  and a shallow trench dug for a couple  of hundred yards, its waters could  be made to flow east instead of west.  A somewhat similar ~ case is seen  where the head waters of the Smoky  and Fraser rivers, though flowing  in opposite directions, have their  common source at the base of a great  glacier on Mount Robson, which  guards the boundary between Alberta  and British Columbia.

FRANK   RIAL   ANGERS.  Dated 17th of December, 1913.  1-23-14  to 3-20-14.  1,500 Volunteers for the South Pole.  ���������; Sir Ernest Shackelton recently described some of the physical hardships  which he and his comrades will have  to face on their forthcoming expedition  ���������to the Antartic. Dealing with the subject of food for travellers in that  region, he emphasized the value of  sugar, the craving for which; he said,  is most acute.  "To show you, he said, how valuable  to the explorer sugar is, there was fin  'rpe'on when we marched 321 miles,  drawing laden sledges, in 14 1-2 days.  Every two hours we took two or three  lumps of sugar each. Within ten minutes of eating this we could feel the  heat going through our bodies, i The  highest temperature of that march was  62 deg. below zero.  /'It is a remarkable fact that while  high up on the plateau our thermome-  ���������t-.ars would not register any. body temperature except just after we had finished eating. Just after a meal the  mercury rose to within a point or .two  of the normal. This curious circumstance has suggested a new arrangement of the hours of march. Night  and day in the ordinary sense will not  exist: for us. On the coming expedition: a'nineteen-hour day is to be ad-  hered to. On awaking one hour will  he devoted to preparation;, after this  there will be a four-hour march, followed hy an hour's rest, another four-  hour march and a second hour's rest.  Sleep time, which formerly lasted from  Tor 8 p.m. till 6 a.m., will'be shortened to eight hours���������the period after  which loss of heat becomes more im-  nortant than gain in rest. We ishall  by this' means save thirty-five hours  in a week and do about eight hours of  marching a day. The arangement will  he better for both men and dogs. '  "We shall take with us no stimulants except tea and cocoa. We drink  the -tea at midday to refresh us for  the 'afternoon' march; The cocoa, is  taken last thing at night to preserve  body heat during the hours of sleep.  The greatest temptation'which assails  an Arctic explorer is the desire to  drink on the march. At his feet lies  potential liquid in unlimited quantity.  ?>ut the snow is at 40 deg. below zero  and must be melted in the mouth. '.The  heat required to melt it is; much too  precious to "be thrown away, representing as it does strength and energy.  " 'Catching cold' is almost unknown  in the Antartic. The only time we  ever suffered from a cold was just after we had opened a bale of English  clothes to Ecrve them out for winter  ���������vrar. The germs apparently were ly-  ihs dormant, having been inhibited by  the cold. They 'woke up', on being  heated. The men whose duties took  'hem into the open recovered In a day.  The others, suffered during four or  five days.  "Absence of sunlight has a most peer l'nx effect on the human complexion;  '"'hen we emerged from four months  of nisrht out faces were green and yellow. Thfi sun, however, soon restored  our normal color. Another curious  point noted was that all the fifteen  men of the shore party were discovered to have blue-grey or blue  eyes."  "The volunteers," said Sir Ernest on  Tuesday, "now number fifteen hundred. They include members of all  walks of; life���������policemen, omnibus-  drivers, and doctors of science. Today's post has brought us subscriptions of sums from 2s 6d. upwards.  Yesterday at a meeting of the council  of i the tRoya-l Geographical Society a  grant of 1,000 pounds was voted towards the expenses of the expedition.  At the meeting of the Council of the  Roy1! Oeographicol Society on Monday  it-was resolved to contribute the sum  of 1,000 pounds towards the Imperial  Trans-Antarctic Expedition under Sir  Ernest Shackleton.  BOTHA AND BRITAIN.  No action to Be Taken in Connection  With Deportation of Labor Leaders.  , London, Feb. 4.���������It can now be  Gtatsd practically officially that/ no  matter what may be the effect in domestic politics, the Imperial Government does not Intend to take the  slightest action in connection with the  deportation of the labor leaders from  "South Africa. It is stated in circles  which claim to know that the Colpn-  ial office has been assured that the  deportations were only undertaken  upon absolute proofs of a plot by the  '���������"���������'��������� leaders, in South Africa to capture the ministers of the Union (ibv-  ernment and declare a labor republic.  If that be the case, it is asserted  that international law, as well as  British' practice, would support every  net of the Botha Government. The  'totalis are, not likely to come out un-  Ml Parliament meetB next week, but  't- is eertRfn that when the subject is  ���������'iscupsed. the' government here will  ^e j)Me to make statements which will  ^onwietcly ohange public opinion and  place the present defendesr of the "la-  ^t leaders in a very different position.

A motor car was built in eleven minutes and put on the road in nineteen  on Wednesday at the the Ford motor  pworks at Trafford Park, Manchester,  ���������bus heating bv six minutes the record at the Ford factory at Detroit.  In seven minutes the chassis was.on  t h n vrrow nd. a nd com plete. in every de-  t.Ml. Four minutes later the body was  !i position and all was ready for the  rr>ad.

A BUSINESS COUNCIL  (Continued from page 1)  This has been done and the Award has been  made. Now, since the award, as provided for in  a legal manner, has been made, it is up to the city  to say: "We have done our work and tare well  satisfied with the award. And we shall pay the  money.";  The Canadian Northern Jlailway, Company  should be so informed, and required to hand over  the money without delay. There were only two  bodies parties to the expropriation proceedings in,  law and fact. These two parties are the owners  and the city. These two parties did their work  in a business-like manner and arrived at a sane  and clearly defined result. No third party has  any legal standing, and has no voice in the matter  except to pay as per the contract. ''  The city does not need to "Move to Set the  Award Aside.'1'   All it has to do is to accept the  award; acknowledge it is a good award, and pay  the money. This being done, it should hand on  the bill to the railway company, and ask the provided for refund of award and all costs.  Suppose the city grant the request, and suppose the award be set aside, then what! Just  this: A fresh start, with all tbe usual delays,  would have to be made, and fresh expropriation  proceedings be carried forward. Then when the  next award is made the same company would  again move to set this award aside, and so on ad  infinitum, et ad nauseam. And the City Council  would be dragged indenifitely after the heels of  the Sir Belted JCnights of High Finance. And  this is the manifest plan of said Knights, if the  city be so weak and folish. Now is the time to  say we have done our work and accept the award-  Come, pay over at once.  THE SHUSHANN*  (Continued from page 1)  In Southern Niageria, on the' west  coast of Africa, the British Government has done much to encourage the  practice of forestry, and eight hundred villages now have communal  plantations of rubber trees. The natives supply the labor, the native  chiefs supply the land and the Forestry Department supplies the seeds,  technical knowledge and tapping, appliances. The profits are divided  equally amc ig the three co-operating  parties.  Gold run and on several claims on Johnson and'  Wilson Creeks.  The deep gravels laying on the benches have  not, as yet, been prospected, but within the past  30 days twelve Porcupine Boilers have gone in  over the McCarthey Trail and soon the work of  prospecting will be begun in earnest.  The gold so far found is coarse and lies:close to  the bed rock. The bed rock is mostly slate and  shale wih, here and there dikes of porphry intruding. The bulk of the timber lies along the  Shushanna River and is from 5 to 8 miles from  the producing claims.  Most of the creeks have -good grade. Provisions have fallen from $1.00 per pound to 30 and  40 cents per pound since the opening of the McCarthy Trail, November 25th, These prices will  be reduced still further as sledding conditiorfs improve. There are at present from 300 to 400 men  and 11 women in the camp.  A Post Office has been established and a contract let for two mails per month. An eifort is  now on foot to increase this to a weekly service.  DESCRIPTION OF THE TRAIL.  Arriving at McCarthy, over the Copper Riyer  and Northwestern Railway, we reached the beginning of the trail to Shushanna.  The trail lies down the Kennicbtt River to its  junction with the Nazina, a distance of five miles,  thence up the Nazina River to the Glacier, a total  distance of thirty-five miles.  This is a water grade, and as much can be  pulled as can be piled on a sled. Four and six  horse teams are used with bob sleds for the larger  outfits and single horses and double end sleds for  the smaller.  From the point where the Glacier is reached,  the trail has been broken-for double end sleds  only, yet there is no reason why bob sleds and  four horse teams cannot be used if desired. It  simply means breaking of the trail for .horses  abreast instead of single.  The trail over the ice is marked by tripods or  stakes eight to twelve feet long, placed fifty to  two hundred feet apart. In going into the diggings, these, stakes are kept on the right and in  coming out, on he left, eVcept where two stand  directly opposite each other, in which event the  course is between. If this is kept in mind, there  will be no necessity of a horse foundering in snow,  for the trail has been well packed.  A twelve hundred pound horse will pull fifteen  hundred pounds on a double end sled from where  the ice is reached, for the first ten miles, or to  Clark's,Road House; from there on, for the next  eight miles or to the Summit, the same horse can  take one thousand pounds, and from the Summit  to Shushanna he can pull all that can be piled on  the sled and take the trip in one day.  There are 11 road houses distributed along the  tTxail from McCarthy to Shushanna and two relief  teiits^near the summit of the Glacier. Good accommodation is to be had at all of them. Meals  run from $1.00 to $2.50. A great many carry  their own equipment and in this way are able to  live more cheaply.  A company is being organized to construct a  telephone line from McCarthy to Shushanna, thus  connecting the camp with the outside world  through the U. S. cable at Cordova.  The Government has detailed soldiers from-Fort  Liscum to patrol the trail for the winter���������thus  providing the same police protection afforded by  the i Canadian Government.  Moody  STANDARD OIL REFINERY    ,  FOR BURNABY INLET]  The Imperial Oil Company���������alias 1  Standard Oil���������has bought 100 acres,]  more or less, on the north shore of  Burrard inlet near Port Moody, from  the Vancouver Timber and Trading  Company; price. $150,000 cash. The  avowed intention, according to Mr.  C. M. Rolston, manager of Imperial  Oil Company, is to'build a refining  plant at a cost of $500,000 to employ  from 100 to 200 men.  The plans for building and wharvesl  are already in preparation, and withfl  the  C.   P.   R.  branch   recently  constructed through property put in active operation, there should speedilyj  bt a scene of great life and activity  employing many hundreds of: men.  The main wharf will be about  fuet long, capable of accommodating  the great oil tankers that bring irl  tiue crude petroleum from Mexictif  and California, Hints, are thrOwr  out that special attention will be paiij  to the development of B. C. oil field?  so that with companies forming ami  operations progressing at severa]  different points���������Pender island, Gra  ham island, Pitt meadows, etc.,  looks as if British Columbia, had  last entered upon her age of oil.  It is a common superstition amon|  the woodsmen of Eastern Canad  that many of the dead larch ytrec  have come to life again. The treej  noticed were not really: dead, hp\  ever, but had appeared so becausd  they had been entirely stripped ol  their leaves by the larvae of thf  larch saw-fly. The tamarack is  valuable tree because of its ability t������j  grow in" swamps, and its wood is!  highly esteemed for fuel, ties, fence  posts and construction work gener^  ally. * Yet through the continued  ravages of the larch saw-fly over  one-half of the tamarack, in Eastern!  Canada has already  been  destroyed!  Mr. W. I������r. Millar, District Inspec'  tor of Dominion Forest Reserves ir  Alberta,  says:      "Along   the    nortr,  fork of the Sheep river' is> found th������  largest body   of   non-licensed    mer  chantable  timber  which  I have  ye  seen in the Rocky mountains.    It i  rather remarkable    that this timbe  consists almost entirely of lodgepol  pine���������there was in sight at least tej  sections   (10   square   miles)   of , thi|  timber."  Qrip and Password  "That the members of King Edward  L. O. L., No. 181& at their regulaij  meeting do emphatically condem the  action of the present Federal admin-]  istration in-the issuance of a Bilir  gual postcard, as we consider the%c|  to be dangerous to the unity of th������  country.    As Canada is not a Bilini  gual  country,  the  English  language  and the English language only-must)  be the language of the country.   We1  call , upon  our  member,  Mr.   H.  Hj  Stevens, to use all his power and in*  fluence to have the French removeo  from   our   National   postcards   ant  other official papers, and that a copy!  of this resolution be sent to Mr. H.'l  H.   Stevens,   the   Sentinel  and  local]  press."  On Tuesday February 3rd, Mrs. Alma Keeler, the popular elocutionist, j  gave a splendid literary and musical  recital at tbe Labor Temple hall. The I  affair was under the auspices .of the]  L.O.T.M. Vancouver Hive No. 2, and I  Alexandra Hive No. 7.  Mrs. Keeler was assisted by some ot  the best musical talent in the city, and  the many who attended thoroughly en]  joyed themselves.
