The King read his speech, and by the emphasis  laid on his words and the gravity of his manner  'whilst referring to the Irish   situation   showed  iVa that he realized the extreme seriousness i of the  I) situation.  '���������[:.������������������:  We refuse to believe that a way wilknot yet  ::,W found to avoid the impending disaster, but as  the: days go by without the first sign of giving  way on either side every well wisher of the Empire  must feel concern.  It is not an easy question; for the Britisher  outside'the immediate contestants of Protestant  and Roman Catholic Ireland, to decide. On the  one side there is the very evident principle of the  ^"rule of the majority," which the Britisher has  so valiantly fought for and with very many Brit-  ^ishers outside of Ulster this has an ever increasing  ^influence. On the other side there is *' Loyal  ���������Ulster," who declares and believes in its very soul  that Home Rule is but the first step to separation  from the Empire, and who is determined not to  be put out of the Empire without resorting to the  last resource open to strong and brave men.  At the present time therg is no solution in  sight. Roman Catholic Ireland j%-aj| certain to  resist exclusion of Ulster as Ulsteris to resist  what she believes to be disruption of the Empire,  and all thinking men and wpmen view with gravity the approach of the day when either party in  Ireland will be put to the final -test of their  If pledges and covenants.  Ulster has ^00,000 trained and. armed men  led���������-it is openly stated���������by officers of the British army. Romanist Ireland relies on the British  army to enforce Home Rule when passed, but  we refuse to believe that the King's soldiers will  fire upon the men who fight because,, they declare  II the Empire is in danger.  I>  PRO VJN0JAL ORANP ORANGE LOPOB  The Orangemen of this Province meet at Nelson next week in annual session of their Grand  Lodge. A special car conveying the local members will leave Vancouver via the Great Northern  R. R. on February 15 at 3:30 p. m.

By the way Ottawa had a reminder also���������to  walk straight.

POSTER'S WEEKLY REPORT.  We are now entering one of the greatest  storm periods of modern times. The premonitions of this dreaded conflict of nature's forces  have already been seen in the great earthquakes  in Japan.  We are near the last of the great storms that  have been experienced on the Pacific slope and  the Rockies, so correctly foretold in these bulletins five months ago. The great weather change  which will change the locations of precipitation  and the storms will come " with the last days of  February, but, of course, the change will not be  Ridden but gradual.  Dates' of dangerous storms for March, April  and May will not be far from March 1, 7, 24, 29,  April 4, 14,23, May 10.���������..:  t  London, Feb."11���������Lord Charles Beresford' s addressing the Ulster Association of London,^tonight  said: _  "If the Imperial forces are ordered to fire on  the Ulster men, they must obey. But I decline to  believe that the Government will go to that extreme  to force Home Rule on Ireland. If the Government  does, it will be the first step towards demobilization  of the army and navy, and will lead to the breaking  up of the Empire."

'  v. ������������������. : : '>  The Western Call is not troubled with agnosticism. It believes in the  revealed God and His Wordvgiven through men of old separated to the task,  who spoke and wrote as they were inbreathed of God.  And yet The Western Call���������Believer���������finds itself in complete accord with  Cecil Rhodes, reputed agnostic, as far as God's plan for the British Empire is  concerned. Note���������We do not believe that ��������� the British Empire is necessary to  God's earthly plahs any more than were Israel and Judah of old, although deliberately chosen for God's purposes, but we do believe that God has been and is  using the British Empire for governmental purposes on this earth, and will continue-to do so as long as the British people retain that measure of godliness and  righteousness that has been their portion in the past. Should the British people  turn from God and righteousness we believe they will be cast off as God cast off  Judah and Roman and Spanish and Frankish Empires, all of which God has  mightily used to further His plans and purpose^ upon thi^ earth.  The Western Call stands, therefore, for everything that will help the  British Empire to sustain righteousness twixt man and man and good government among the nations.  This is a large order, but open confession is good for the soul, and a  plain straightforward utterance helps to cement friendships and commends the  respect even of enemies. .  Further, The Western Call believes that Canada has a capital part to  play in the future of the British Empire, and as our lot is cast in perhaps the most  stragetic point of Canada our view point will be steadfastly along the line that  Canada can play in this weird world drama that is so rapidly unveiling before  our eyes. ./....  ' We allow the fullest liberty to all; to ������differ from oiir views; we invite the  hearty support and co-operation of all who believe with us and���������God defend the  right!- ''.'������������������������  B. C. ELECTRIC AND SOUTH VANCOUVER.  A strong effort is bejng made to get the B. C. Electric to give a 5-cent ^straight fare to South  Vancouver people, and Thus abolish all settlers' tickets for that .municipality. We believe this  would largely increase the travel and tend to allay much of the feeling against tbe Company.  There is also a move to increase the car service on Victoria road, which, at rush hours, is badly  overcrowded; but we believe a better arrangement would be to put two more cars on Earl's Road  Line and run same through to Main street and Seventh, [thus giving CollingAVood a 15-minute  through service and relieving the Victoria road car of its pressure as well.  H. H. STEVENS,   P.  INTRODUCES NEW BILL  -przrz.  -r  A private bill that has created-unusual interest  has been introduced by Mr. H. H. Stevens, Domin- '.  ion. member for Vancouver.   His measure is en*  titled "a bill to amend the Money Lenders1 Act.*'  .and since the announcement that he intends to  ~  introduce the bill he has been receiving a num.- '"  ber of inquiries and suggestions from'all parts of  ���������  .Canada. \ v  One important change in the act whichv Mr.  Stevens proposes is in regard to the definition of  a money lender. Under the act as it now stands, -  a money lender is described as one who carries on  the business of money lending or makes a practice  of it. Mr.- Stevens has substituted the following  clause: <~     >.  ''Money lending in this act includes any person who lends money, or advertises, or announces  himself, or holds himself out in any way as being  a lender of money."  The act at present does not apply to' the Yukon. This clause is repealed and the act is made  applicable to the Yukon as well as the rest of  Canada. - Now the law is applicable only to sums  of over- $590. By the amendments proposed V  Mr. Steven*., t^e act^wuT apply to all loans no  matter how! s������(ill.r> In addition Mr. Stevens re- ,  duces the legal maximum rate of interest from  12 to 10 per cent.   The clause is as follows:  "Notwithstanding the provisions of the In-;  terest Act, no money lender shall stipulate fo.,  allow of exaction any negotiable instrument, con-.  tract or agreement, concerning a loan of money  a.rate of interest or discount greater than 10 per  cent per annum;' and the said rate of interest shall  be reduced to the rate of 5 per cent per annum  from the date of the judgment in any suit, action or other proceeding for the recovery of the  amount due."  THU FUTUWB OF THE LOWER FRASER  By Prof. E. Odium.  No roan can doubf the splendid future of the  Fraser River Valley, from Hope to the Salt Sea,  unless he be ignorant of the fertility of its soil,  its superb climate, and favorable location.  The urban population of this fine agricultural  and horticultural area is already fully 200,000,  and the increase will be very rapid in the future.  'The varied products,-to come from the ground,  when every acre is cleared, tilled and properly  ^cultlxa^  not more. Hence as numbers increase and the  demands for every sort of earth-products multiply great advantage will accrue to the owners  and tillers of the aforesaid lands.  Every acre of arable ground* even up to an  altitude of 2,000 or 3,000 feet, will be called in  requisition as time passes. In the meantime,  those who own these lands should do everything  psosible to put them into a producing condition.  The B. C.E. Railway Company has performed  wonders in their extended lines through the Fraser Valley, as far east as Chilliwack. The convenience and, advantages to the farming and  other rural community are of inestimable value.  This company is doing its duty as a country  builder.  It is up to the rural population to face the  hard, dirty work of clearing the land and getting  into condition to compete with the State of Washington and other producing centers for an ever  increasing table clientage.  The people must eat, and the food must come  from somewhere. Hence the 'Frascrites -would  do well to use every energy to supply the growing  demand, and great good, comfort and riches will  be derived therefrom.  STATUTORY WEEKLY   HALF HOLIDAY.  The New Westminster Retail Merchants' Association went on record last week as favoring a  Statutory Weekly Half Holiday and the compulsory closing of stores at 6 o'clock, except on'  evenftigs preceding holidays.  MAZZINI MINOR  Home Rule for Ireland.  Canadians who are foolish enough to favor the  present scheme of Irish Home Rule should read  Mazzici Minor's Booklet on "Home Rule for Ireland." If any man can read this production and  then favor Asquith's Bill, he must be very obtuse,  or" ignorant, or a hater of the Empire and Protestantism.  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.  ���������';.4|  "M  ;>���������  t *M  '.t'^Tv-,  .'t1 f .* -,lv     rf  ^?1  ;������  i-  "f     'i*   J*-  f'i   'V  I; ..V-;'.*V,    V���������/.'.r,,ri=S>,^  2  IE WESTERN CALL  PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY  BY THE  TERMINAL CITY PRESS, LTD.  HEAD OFFICE:  203 Kingsway, Vancouver  Telephone Fairmont 1140  Subaorlntlons  One Dollar m Year In Advance  Ye Shall Know the Truth and  the Truth Shall Make You Free.  1914.  Dr. Aked, pastor of First Congregational  church and President of the Church Federation  of San Francisco, has become a storm center in  the religious circles of the city of the Golden  Gate.  Dr. Aked, according to his own profession,  does not believe in the miraculous conception of  Christ, and has stated so publicly in a sermon,  and re-asserted it when questioned by the press.  More than that, he asserts that neither Mark,  John, James or Paul ever said anything about  Jesus having eome into the world in a miraculous way. Of course, as far as mere words are  concerned, this has an appearance' of truth, but  how anyone, outside of a mad house,'can hope  to sustain such a position, even in these days of  ultra license as regards doctrinal teaching, goes  beyond us. In consequence of this public utterance of the president of the Church Federation,  openly avowed and upheld by the Doctor in the  public press, the Presbyterian Ministerial Association of San Francisco has sent to the Federation the following letter:  "While freely > according to all the right to  fullest liberty to worship God according to the  dictates of their consciences, we believe that the  statements of his beliefs as given in the daily  Eress by Rev. C. F. Aked, thoroughly disqualify  im to act as the official representative of the  Evangelical churches of San Francisco. .  "Therefore be it resolved, that the executive  committee of the Church Federation be requested  to suggest to Dr. Aked the wisdom and justice of  his retirement from the presidency of the Church  Federation, and, in the event this is not secured,  that as a protest against such leadership, the  Presbyterian churches of the city be advised to  withdraw from connection with the federation."  Dr. Aked, as chairman ex-officio of all com-,  mittees, will be called to preside when this letter  js read.   He seems to like such situation*.   Dr.  Aked's reputation in Liverpool years ago was  that of an outspoken Unitarian.   Why he should,  seek to force himself upon the Evangelicals, and  cause such repeated flutterings in the dove cotes, ^  is one of these things, as Lord Dundreary used  to say, "No fellow can understand."  "There is only one man who can escape criticism, and that is the man who  has done nothing."  Courage cors^sts not in blindly overlooking danger, but' in meeting it with the  eyes open.���������Richter.  v  THE WESTERN CALL.  Friday, February IS, 1914  BISHOP POTTER'S FOLLY  $1,000,000 TO BUILD NAVE.  Novel Campaign Is Begun in New York for St.  John Cathedral.  New York.���������A novel campaign to raise $1,-  000,000 to be used in building the nave of the  cathedral of St. John, the Divine, was begun  yesterday, when one hundred men and women  each undertook to obtain pledges for $10,000.  The campaign will probably cover a period of six  months, although Bishop Greer announced that  there would be no time limit.  Of the $1,000,000 fund, contributions of $81,-  000 have already been made.  Millions and millions have already gone into  this movement of priestly folly, and yet it is con-  vincely said in the Good Book that "God dwell-  eth not in Temples made with hands."  A good story is told of Moody and Sanky's  visit to York. Whilst seeing tbe min'ster,  the verger was pointing out the beauty spots,  expiating on the length and breadth of aisle and  transept, when Sankey interposed abruptly.  "How many conversions did you have here last  year?" "Conversions, sir! Do ye take this for  a Methodist chapelt" But, alas, for the day���������  the Methodists, whose very existence is due to a  protest against such things, are now very much  engaged in cathedral building, although they  have not yet adopted the name.  THE PRICE HE PAID.  I said I would have my fling,  And do what a young man may;  And I didn't believe a thing  That the parsons have to.say.  I didn't believe in God  That gives us blood like fire,  Then flings us into hell because   x  We answer the call of desire.  n:A;  And I said:   "Religion is rot,  And the laws of the world are  For the bad man is he who is caught  And cannot foot his bill.  And there is no place called hell;  And heaven is only a truth,  When a man has his way with a maid,  In the fresh keen hour of youth.  "And money can buy us grace,  If it rings on the plate of the church;  And money can neatly erase,  Each sign of a sinful smirch.''  For I saw men everywhere.  Hotfooting the road of vice;  And women and preachers smiled on them  As long as they paid the price.  So I had my joy of life:'  I went the pace of the town;  And then I took me a wife,  And started to settle down'. i ������������������"  I had gold enough and to spare  For all of the simple joys  That belong with a house and a home  And a brood of girls and boys.  I married a girl with health  And virtue and spotless fame,  I gave in exchange my wealth  And a proud old family name.  And I gave her the love of a heart  Grown sated and sick of sin!  My deal with the devil was all cleaned up, .  And the .last bill handed in.  She was going to bring me a child,  And when in'labor she cried,  With love and fear I was wild���������  But now I wish she had died.  For the son she bore me was blind  And crippled and weak-and sore!---  And his mother was^left a wreck,  It was so she settled my score.  I said I must have my fling,  And they knew the path I would go;  Yet no one told me a thing  Of what I needed to know.  Folks talk too much of a soul  From heavenly joys debarred���������  And not enough of the babes unborn,  By the sins of their fathers scarred.  ���������By Ella Wheeler Wilcox.  exsszzzi,  ...

PARCEL POST RATES  AND REGULATIONS  The parcel post has now gone into  effect all over Canada, and will be a  great convenience to vast numbers  of people all over our land.  In preparing the schedule of prices  to be charged Hon. H. L. Pelletier,  postmaster-general, has decided on  the zone system, on account of the  great area and the comparatively  sparse population of the Dominion.  Zone~ System.  If a flat rate were fixed that would  not entail too great a loss to the department in carrying parcels from one  end of the Dominion to the other, or  even from the center provinces to  the extreme east or western end, the  rate would be too high for comparatively short distances, or even between points within the same province and the only practical plan appeared to be the zone system, under  which the rates are graduated according to the distance.  On account of the geographical position of the provinces of Canada, and  their being approximately the same  size where the three Maritime provinces are considered as one, it was  found that the provincial boundaries  would be the most convenient to  adopt as the limits of the zones, and  consequently, the rates were fixed  by provinces. This makes the system  a very simple one, much easier to  follow than the zone system based  upon mileage alone.  The first rate is 5 cents for the  first pound and 1 cent for each additional pound of fraction thereof, up  to four pounds, and 2 cents for each  subsequent pound up_ to eleven  pounds, within a radius of twenty  miles from_the place of mailing," ir=  respective of provincial boundaries.  This is to give local merchants an  advantage within their own neighborhood, and also farmers and gardeners  who can use the mails for sending  produce to their local market at a  low rate.  A parcel of eleven pounds can be  sent twenty miles for 2 cents a pound,  and this should give the farmers a  decided advantage in marketing eggs  and other perishable matter. It will  also give a decided advantage to t.the  country merchant over the departmental store. The former can send  out goods in parcels up to eleven  pounds to his customers at 2 cents a  pound, while if the same- goods were  ordered from a departmental store  or any other business concern more  than twenty miles distant it would  cost about 5 cents a pound for postage.  The next rate is fixed for the province in which ari^ article is mailed,  the first pound to be 10 cents and  each additional pound 4 cents.' The  cost of handling a one-pound parcel  is approximately the same as that of  two or three pounds, and consequently it was necessary to fix a minimum  rate for the first pound considerably  higher .than the average rate for the  additional pounds included in tbe  weight of the parcel.  Beyond  Province.  For an adjacent province the rate  of 10 cents for the first pound will  apply but for .each additional pound  an extra charge of 2 cents will be  imposed, making the rate 10 cents  for the first pound and 6 cents for  each additional pound. Beyond the  province adjoining the one,. in which  parcel is mailed an additional 2 cents  a pound will be imposed for each  province that has to be crossed to  the destination of parcel up to a maximum charge of 12 cents a pound.

When an advertiser advertises he wants to reach the  people. Patronage is needed to make a business a success.

If the ad. is in a handy  place, only a moment is needed to refer to it. What better  medium is there than the telephone directory ? An advertiser  wants circulation, and he gets it. Thirty-one thousand directories are issued, and they go into every home that does considerable buying between Agassiz and the Gulf of Georgia.  Every part of the district is covered.  An advertiser appreciates a medium that is in constant  use. The directory is used an average of eight times per subscriber per day, or over 200,000 times every twenty-four  hours. These figures are not guessed at, but are ascertained  by actual count each, month. Moreover, the directory is never  discarded. It is referred to' unceasingly, and man, woman and  child soon gets familiar with the names prominently displayed  therein. ' ���������  An advertiser wants to make sure he is reaching the  people he wants. Who is there who does not consult a telephone directory some time during the day ? If a firm's name is  displayed on several consecutive pages at the top or bottom,  or if the name of a special article were shown there, would  it not soon be known in every household on the Lower Mainland of British Columbia ?  If you have something to market, if you want to reach  ���������' all the people all the time, take a look at the directory.   It is a  particularly good medium for most purposes, and very probably ii will be just what you want.  Ford, Ont.���������Figures which have  been furnished to dealers and salesmen-' show the healthy condition of  the Ford Motor Company's 'business,  both in Canada and the United  States, by citing both shipments and  orders on hand far in excess of conditions a year ago.  Up to January 1st, before the end  of the first quarter of the 1914 production season, the Walkerville factory had shippeu 72 per cent more  cars than during the same period in  the preceding season, and orders on  file for immediate shipment were  more than 150 per cent greater than at  the same time in the previous year.  In the same period, the Detroit  factory's shipments showed an increase of more than SO per cent and  in addition 120,000 car orders on hand.  At the time these figures were com-  piled, the Canadian factory was shipping 80 cars daily, with prospects of  soon attaining the 100 a day mark.  Employes in the Walkerville plant at  that time numbered 1300 and 200 in  the Canadian branches, 'as against  572 men^ in the plant and 1000 in the  branches the previous year. It is expected that 1800 to 2000 men will be  employed in the plant later in the'  year. '  Production plans of the Canadian  factory estimate an output of 20,000  to 25,000 cars for the 1914 season. ���������  ���������   ���������   ���������  YARROW'S YARDS BUSY  Much Important Repair Work Done  'at Esquimalt by, New Owners of  B. C. Marine Ways.  The shipbuilding yards recently  taken over at Esquimalt by Messrs.  Yarrows, Ltd., have completed two  particularly busy months. New main  boilers, fuel oil tanks, and the Dahl  oil burning' system were installed  in .the tug William Jolliffe and the  government dredges Ajax and King  Edward."  General hull and engine repairs  were carried out on the government  tugs Point Ellice and Point Grey.  The Grand Trunk Pacific steamship Prince John was fitted with  fuel oil tanks and the Dahl'oil burning system. The G. T. R. steamer  Prince Albert was drydocked for repairs due to grounding.  The C. P. R. steamer Princess Sophia was drydocked for repairs to  stern frame. A new rudder post and  half of stern frame was replaced  with a new steel forged frame.  The largest and most interesting  contract, which was started by Bui  lens, and is now being completed by  Yarrows, Ltd., is the lengthening of  the C. P. R. coaster Princess Mary.  She has been cut in two parts, and  the work of adding the extra forty  feet of steel is now well under way.  ���������   ���������   ���������  GOVERNMENT AUCTION  OP FORT GEORGE LOTS  First Sale Here Next May; Afterwards in Victoria and Northern  Cities.  ���������������^>������^<$M{������{M3H������M$MjM{M$MgM{M{M{M$M$M$M$M$M2M$MgMgl  South Vancouver  Five Cent Fare, Extension of Service, and Double-Tracking of Lines  Are Asked by South Vancouver  Council.-  ���������;  South - Vancouver.���������A deputation  consisting of the Reeve and Council  of South Vancouver waited on Mr.  Glover of the British Columbia Elec-'  trie Railway this afternoon and  asked for through cars on Main  street to Fraser or River road, or,  if not, double tracking to Bodwell  road; a 5 cent fare instead of the  present settlers' tickets; the double  tracking of Bodwell road from Main  to Fraser streets; and stations on  Bodwell road and Main streets for  the convenience of passengers.  After the delegation had been  heard Mr. Glover replied that he  would give the proposals every consideration. He pointed out, how*  ever, that financial conditions did  not warrant any extensive changes  at the present time.  The reeve and council yesterday  waited upon the management of the  B. C. E. R. Company with a request  for increased transportation facilities  on Main street south, Kingeway and  Victoria road; also to ask for the  abolition of the settlers' tickets and  the establishment of a straight 5  cent fare between South Vancouver  and Vancouver. Mr. Glover informed  the delegation that so far as the service on Victoria road was concerned,  the company had already had that  matter under consideration, and in a  short time the service would be augmented so that passengers from Collingwood would at no time have to  wait at Victoria road more than four  minutes for a car to the city. With  reference to a through service on  Main street, Mr. Glover pointed out  that the present service does not pay  from Twenty-fifth avenue south to  the River road, and until the traffic  warranted it the matter would have  to,be laid over. In regard to the abolition of the settlers' tickets it was  stated that the matter is under consideration, and a system may be  adopted whereby residents in South  Vancouver will be able to have the  advantage of a 5-cent straight fare  without having to spend 50 cents on  a settlers' ticket.  *     *    ���������  Mr. H. B, A. Vogel, secretary of  the North Fraser harbor commision,  told the Province that a movement  is on foot to form a boating club on  the North Arm of the Fraser and that  he would be pleased to get into  touch with those interested. He suggests that boating clubs be formed  in Point Grey, Richmond, South Vancouver and Burnaby, and that during  the summer months rowing competitions be arranged among the members of the clubs.

T. Arm.  strong. The government expects  that 2,300 lots will be sold for an aggregate price of $2,000,000.  The auction in Vancouver will be  followed by auctions in Victoria,  Prince George and Fort George. The  government proposes to sell all of its  lots that it holds in the Page town-  site, Central Fort George, a Hammond townsite addition, and in South  Fort George. Some of the lots that  it owns in Prince George, the G. T.  P. townsite, will also be disposed of.  These lots arc expected to average  $1,500 each.  The government owns one-fourth of  the lots in each townsite subdivision  and following the development of the  country and its connection with the  Grand Trunk sPacific the government  will, sell out its'- interests.

Plans for the extension of this  course were completed at a faculty  meeting at the school recently, says  the Chronicle. To date the study of  agriculture has been a minor subject,  covering one semester of work. Under the new plan it will be made a  major subject, in which pupils may  specialize for practical work after  high school, or in preparation for a  more complete course.  Collingwood.���������There was an excellent attendance at the annual meeting of the Collingwood and District  Men's Association. Mr. Martin, the  secretary, reviewing the work done  by the association during the past  few months, said there had been a  great improvement in many things  around Collingwood; the association'  had more than justified its existance.  They had not been able to induce  the' B. C. E Railway to build new  stations���������badly needed at , Collingwood���������but they had been able to get  the freight trains to go through the  district at a rate of speed compatible  with safety at the level crossings. Mr.  Martin regrets that on account of  other engagements he would have  to resign the position of secretary.  The resignation was accepted and  Mr. Martin was heartily thanked for  his past services. Mr. Orrel wiH act  as secretary in future. Mr. Pringle  was elected president and Mr. W. H.  Kent vice-president. Several new  members were elected.  Favorable attention was drawn to  the airangements made for supplying  the school children with hot lunches.  The society arranged to give, at an  early date, a concert for the benefit  of the School Dinners' Fund, as work  is scarce and some distress prevails  round Collingwood. The association  adjourned to meet again in a fortnight at the Bursill library, meanwhile a strong committee will make  arrangemnts for the concert.

MANUFACTURERS TO
PROTEST TO PREMIER
Will Tell Sir Richard How Peeved They Feel
Qver American Preference
The local, manufacturers are very dissatisfied
with the way in which they have been treated by
Sir Richard^ McBride and the provincial government, and as^a result the Manufacturers' Association of Britisfi Columbia is sending a deputation
to see the Premier on Tuesday of next week.
The particular matter that they are going
down to talk about is the fact that American
.electric light fixtures are being used in the additions to the local courthouse and the parliament buildings in Victoria. This matter was
taken up with Sir Richard some time ago, as reported in the World. But in spite of the fact that
he wired the local association, stating that he
was looking into the matter, two weeks have gone
by without any action being taken.
The mattufacturerSjOf B. C. state that they
are turning out just as good fixtures as the American Company that is, getting the contract, and
supply them at just as good a price, and do not
see why they should be-discriminated against by
the government of the country, they are helping
to upbuild. Another thing that makes them
doubly angry is the fact that Sir Richard McBride
and all the ministers promised some time ago to
do everything in their power to" help the local
industries, and now when they have the chance
to stay by their word they immediately turn to
an American firm. ,
The deputation which will se Sir Richard and
try and find out bis reasons for discriminating
against the British Columbia. manufacturers is
headed by tbe president, Mr. F. T. Cope, who
will be backed by Mr- J�� J. Morrison, first vice-
president; Mr. John Duncan, second vice-president j of New Westminster; Mr. J. C. Pendray, of
Victoria; Messrs. John Hanbury, E. G. Baynes
and J. W. Curran.

Victoria.���The Minister of Justice at Ottawa
has refused to extend clemency at the present,
time to the miners undergoing imprisonment for
participation in the recent trouble in the mining
districts of Vancouver Island.
This announcement follows the forwarding
of the petition from the families of the imprisoned miners, which was presented to Sir Richard
McBride oh the opening day of the present session
of Parliament.
Memorials were also sent during last month to
the. Minister of Justice from the trades unions
and from labor organizations all over this country, while cables were forwarded to His Majesty
King George and to the Home Secretary in the
Imperial Parliament.

STARTED  Construction Begins on $300,000  Structure for Panama Pair  San Francisco.���������Construction work  on the $300,000 Canadian pavillion  at the Panama-Pacific Exposition  has been began. Col. William Hutchinson, commissioner general of the  Dominion of Canada, announced today that the building would be completed by October 1. The $300,000 to  be expended upon the building is  one-half of the total appropriation  of Canada, but a large" amount -will  be raised by the various divisions of  the Dominion. British Columbia is  now subscribing a large fund for the  purpose of sending an individual exhibit to the exposition.  MINERAL RICHES OF B. C.  The .extent and variety of British  Columbia's minerals are as yet practically unknown, and mining, as an  industry, is in its earliest infancy.  While" the deposits of gold,, silver,  copper, ~ lead, coal,' lime, building  alone, etc., are being exploited to a  certain extent and are annually producing wealth- amounting to over  thirty millions of dollars, there are  other minerals discovered from time  to time, and the next generation may  see the variety of profitable metals  and minerals doubled in number.  While new discoveries are being  made, there are other deposits the  existence of which has been known  for some time, but which have not  become producers because of the lack  of transportation facilities . Among  these is the vast deposit of carbonate of soda underlying the "soda  lakes" and adjacent territory in the  Cariboo country. These lakes , have  become^ impregnated with the mineral to the point of a saturated solution through seepage, and have excited the interest of scientists for a  generation or more.  Location of Deposits.  Situated within two miles of the  old Cariboo wagon road, about sixty  miles north of Ashcroft, their existence has been no secret since white  men first penetrated that country,  but because the product could not be  taken to market -except at the expense of a long wagon haul on top  of the railroad charges, they have  been allowed to lie dormant. This  condition, however, will soon be  changed. The sodium deposits have  been secured by a local syndicate,  who intend to commence active development with the advent of spring,  and by the time the Pacific Great  Eastern railway reached the vicinity  next fall it is expected that shipments of the product will at once begin.  In the early eighties the late Dr.  Dawson, perhaps the greatest authority^on  minerals^ everoperating  in" CanadaT andTwho spent the greater  part of his lifetime in the geological  survey of the Dominion, reported on  these lakes, spending several weeks  in ; examining them, and their surroundings. He expressed the opinion  that underlying these lakes is an  enormous vein or deposit consisting  a foundation of one of the salts of  potassium, which is capped By ..the  carbonate of soda. Owing to the  action of the water through continual  mass produced ten pounds of crystals.  The ice forms,"every winter to an  average depth of fourteen inches,  and as the larger of the lakes is  slightly over 50 acres in area, a simple arithmetical calculation shows  that this one lake will produce each  winter about 21,000 tons of the pure  carbonate of soda, and assuming  that the net profit from this product  would be only $5 per ton, the possibilities > of the proposition may be  readily seen, even though operations  were confined only to removing the  crop which nature annually provides.  ^Industry on Large Scale.  The one drawback to operating the  deposits in this manner lies in the  fact that a continuous crop of ice and  soda is not supplied, and it is the intention to locate the deposit either  by diamond drilling or by shafts, and  work continuously on a large scale.  In fact if all the plans of the promoters materialize there will, before  many years, be employment for such  a number of hands as ��������� to make this  industry the largest employer of labor  in the province.  Carbonate of soda is one of the  most widely used minerals in the universe. It enters into the composition of soap and washing powders, is  indispensrble to cyaniding and other  gold saving plants, pulp and paper  mills, and in fact in nearly every  kind and description of manufacturing  institution, as well as being used in  the manufacture of glass. With the  advent of the P. G. E. railway, which  passes within two miles of the deposit, It is more than probable that  an industrial city of some magnitude  will grow around the works which It  is proposed to instal.  Germany is the only exporter of  commercial potash, and the deposits  in that country exist at considerable  depth beneath the surface, making  the product more or less 'expensive to  secure.--' The German exports amount  to $7,000,000 annually, and if the  theory ",of the late - Dr. Dawson is  found to be correct, that the carbonate  of soda is underlaid by sodium deposits, a large proportion of thifr  money will soon be coming to British  Columbia instead of crossing the  ocean. While Dr. Dawson , stands  so .high in the profession that his  opinion; need no corboration, it,is  a fact that other geological experts  of this city agree with him on this  point, "so-the_chances for the development of a potassium industry in  conjunction with the .carbonate of  soda are extremely favorable.  seepage as well as certain chemical  reactions,  the  lakes    have    become keepers are making a move to be first  NEW $TfHKMN WIN  Richer than Shushana, is the verdict  on the new strike at O'Donneli's  creek, in the Atlin country, where, according to reports which have just  reached this city, four and five ounces  to the pan have been taken out.

"v r ���������-." :\ '^:  The expert who reported on the  deposits for the . local syndicate  found a peculiar and interesting condition existing. It appears that when  the first skim of the ice forms on the  surface of the water the carbonate  of soda, having a medium to which  to attach, formed itself into crystals  upon the lower surface of the ice,  and as the latter increased in thickness the process of crystallization  continued, soda crystals and ice crystals joining together in. a solid mass-  Two blocks of this product which the  expert secured by the method of saw-;  ing htem out, were, brought to thj%  city, and when the ice had melted  the soda crystals were weighed, and  it was found that a cubic foot of-the  ������$m������*$m������m������m3m������m3m$������*3*^''*$n$m$#?3mS'*3"3m$**3mSm3**Sm*mSmI������  * - - \ '''     V .-'-��������������������������� ���������'-.  *  Mrs.  J.

Victorfa.���������That radium 'may eventually play some part in1 the mineral  production of British Columbia is evidenced by the announcement made  today by the Premier that steps will  be taken to reserve all deposits of  this ultra-precious' element for the  government.  "This matter has been under consideration for some time," said Sir  Richard McBride, "and it is possible  that legislation may be introduced  during the present session to reserve  all radio active ores for the exclusive use of the people of the province.  Even if legislation is not brought in  at the present session the matter will  be thoroughly discussed with a view  to taking active steps in the near fu-  ture."  The action taken by the government in the matter will'be in the line  with the practice of several European governments who have refused  to allow exportation of this metal.  Radium today is by far the most valuable substance known to the scientific world in point of cost being  valued at approximately $2,500,000 an  ounce, and in order to extract even  a milligramme of the metal 'many  tons- of ore have to be treated. The  main sources of supply are found in  Cornwall) England, and in Hungary,  although small quantities of the metal  have been extracted from ores in  Denver.  It is said that one of the factors  that has induced the government to  take immediate action in the matter  is the reported discovery of traces  of helium and uranium with which  radium is chemically allied in certain  ores brought down from the Peace  River country.  ~ -> -VI  1 WT  ���������'-a|  j Alount Pleasant Livery  TRANSFER  Furniture and Piano Moving:  Baggage, Express and Dray.

Dominion government oil experts  are to be sent to British Columbia to  make examinations of the various oil  discoveries which have been made  herei. News of this was communicated  yesterday to several companies who  have obtained leases of oil lands in  different parts of the province. These  were asked to sent to Ottawa what  information wa* in their possession  regaling the * fields in which, they,  are interested. They were also asked  to make reports on what work they  have done,- what improvements had  been * made and report also on the indications of oil as shown as work  progressed.  It is explained that his season the  government geological department,  which has carried its inspection of  general mining districts to such a  point tha������ accurate information regarding almost any section of the Dominion is now available, intends to  proceed to obtain reports by its geologist on the oil lands of the country.  B. C. Oil Discoveries.  Several important oil discoveries  have been made in British Columbia,  most notably those on Graham island,  the largest of the Queen Charlotte  group. _^Qn ,_the ^.rock ^ ;bpund ^ahd-  storm swept west coast of this island  oil 'far exudes, natural parafin wax is  found in most unlikely places, the  rocks are saturated with oil and tar  and burn readily on that account, the  formations are good for indications  of oil, but the drills at work thus far  have not yet obtained sufficient depth  to tap the flow.    ���������. .'���������        '  The government has had reports on  this field before, but nothing of late,  nor anything particularly detailed  from a geological standpoint. There  are several other places in the province where indications of oil are  strong.  The British government is particularly anxious at this time to find oil  on British soil. Mexico and-California at present are the large producers  of fuel oil, and this is the character  of oil most largely sought as fuel oil.  It is. fast taking the place of coal in  the shipping world, and also in the  furnishing of the power for warlike  vessels.  The fact that the Standard Oil interests will soon locate a refinery on  Burrard inlet, and in this connection  will endeavor to obtain possession of  such oil lands as are proven, is lending a great deal of activity to the efforts to discover the flows. Government experts last fall examined the  discoveries in the vicinity of Edmonton. Attention this season is to be devoted to British Columbia.

To thai eastward a steamer with two funnels was  Just coming into range. The- white  aaila of a coasting schooner showed  to westward. Trailing la our wake  waa oar squalid salvage, tbe dory ot  tbe fisherman.  MacLeod, trained to coolness, retained his wits. Systematically he  set to work. Likely and unlikely  places aboard the yacht were looked  Into. Before I knew wbat he was  about, we were going back over the  way we had come with the searchlight swinging in a circle and a half-  dozen sharp-eyed seamen scanning  jevery square foot of rolling wave.  "I can't understand it," I kept re-  beating aloud, with Benseless iteration.  p*I can't understand it."  I was standing alone, well forward,  leaning over the rail. Presently MacLeod laid a hand on. my shoulder.  \ "We can't do anything more than  fwe are doing, Mr. Clyde," he said ln  Shis matter-of-fact way. "For my part,  1 can't understand it, either; but since  Mr. Cameron's not aboard, there's  jonly one conclusion, and that la that  |he's overboard. And since there was  ino one interested In throwing him  [there, then it seems very clear that  ihe must have Jumped." ,  , "Jumped!" I cried. In Irritation.  ("My God, man! Don't I tell you that  I waa not three feet away from him,  jand only for a minute or two? How  could he have Jumped'without my  (hearing .him? How could he even  fhave got out of his chair, without my  Shearing him?"  ,  The captain shrugged hla shoulders.  /"There's-no other explanation," he  decided, conclusively.  "Ton mean he committed suicide?"  "Call It what you like, air."  "But there was no reason for him  to do such a thing," I objected.  "I understand he'a been pretty 111,  Wr."  "He was ill, yes. But be was on the  Toad to recovery." And then, with the  realisation  that X waa  speaking  of  fiifi not start.' ~e simply narroweoT "his"  eyes ln thought.  "That's odd," he said, gravely;  "damned odd." And then, after a second's consideration, he asked: "Was  that���������but of course It was���������why he  took this cruise?"  "No," I told him. "That was not his  reason; though it was mine."  I did not mean to be enigmatic, but  I suppose I was, for MacLeod showed  plainly enough that be failed to understand.  "You see," I went on, ln elucidation,  "Mr. Cameron did not know about this  last threat. He was HI when the letter came, and we kept It from him "  It was evident to me that the captain disapproved, but he held his  peace.  "What were the previous threats?"  he aBked, presently.  "Nothing definite," I answered.  "Simply that on certain fixed days the  writers would demonstrate their  power."  "And did they?"  "Most marvelously."  Again MacLeod was silent for a  space.  "Under the circumstances, Mr.  Clyde, don't you think it would have  been better if you'd told me about  this?"  "Mr. Cameron was very anxious  that no one should knbw."  The captain compassed his right  knee with his locked hands.  "All the Bame," he said, "he'd never  have been spirited off this yacht if I'd  a' known what was in the wind."  This statement annoyed me, and I  resented it  \ "What could you have done?" I  asked. "I was with him almost continuously."  There came a strange, half-meditative, half-bold look ln the man's eyes,  and I was wondering what it portended, when, quite Ignoring my question,  he began speaking:  "You see there oughtn't to be any  misunderstanding between you and  me, air.   This is too serious a busi-  /tog, "you certainly cannot for a mo������  ment suspect me of complicity."  He stood up, too; imperturbable.  "I Just want; those things explained*i  that's all," was his reply.  ; "And I can't explain them,*' I told  him, candidly. "You say you saw the  boat.   I didn't.   You say it was after  ;midnight when I came to you.    It;  ���������may have been.    I don't know.    It  ,may have been nearer twelve, when X\  went to the rail.    My impression is|  that it was not.   I'll admit it Is mysterious.    The whole- awful thing 1st  ;mysterious."  My candor seemed to relieve him.  "Well, Mr. Clyde," he said, with!  equal sincerity, "maybe I waa out-;  spoken, but I wanted to know wbatj  you'd say to the points that werei  Ipuaxllng me."

And then,, j what was to follow,  I  might have,  ias I resumed my seat, I asked: "What  |about the fisherman? He haant evad-  led his guard, has he?"  MacLeod sat down again too.  . "He's in where I put him, now," he  janswered with a shade of reluctance,  }"but���������I'm not sure; it's almost as  jmysterious as the other���������but I could  jhave sworn I saw blm come up that  for*ard hatchway and go sneaking aft  while I was on the bridge."  ���������   "When was that?" I pressed, eager*  ������y.      .' ."'.      '���������.;'  ,   "About a quarter of twelve."  "What did you do?"  , "Nothing, just then. I waited. And  .while I was waiting I saw that black,  spooky craft come out of the dark,  iand go skimming. astern of us. A  little after eight bells I came down  from the bridge���������I stopped there for  just a minute to have a word with  Brandon when be came up���������and then  jl went myself to look after Johnson  and the man I'd set to watch blm. The  [fisherman was in a bunk sound asleep,  jand the man swore he had been lying  there snoring, for the past two hours.  *Who was it came up the ladder twenty minutes ago?' I asked. He looked  at me as if he thought I was gone  suddenly loony. 'Before the watch  changed?" he asked. I nodded. 'Not  a soul came or went,' he said, 'since I  been here.'"  "And the boat without lights?" I  questioned. "Did you inquire about  her?   Who else saw her?"  "I asked the lookouts; but���������well,  no, sir���������and that's very strange to me  ������������������neither of them saw her. I gave  them both a rating. If they weren't  asleep I don't see how they could  have missed her."  Tbe thing was growing more, and  more baffling. MacLeod was the last  man to be accused of Imaginative fancies. He was thoroughly, ln earnest in  What he had told me; and yet for  neither of his statements bad be the  ���������pared myself a goodly share of dls-  itress.  .'    ���������  . I Imagined I knew Evelyn Grayson,1  'before this. I thought I had sounded  the profundities of her fortitude and|  courage on the night that I spread be-;  tore her and read with her that third!  and last letter. But my fancy did her]  an injustice. She was even more of;  a woman than I dreamed.  Recently I chanced upon these lines,  by Thomas Dunn English, which must  [have been inspired by such a one aa  ahe:'  So much is clear,   .  Though little  danger* they may fear,  When greater perils men environ.  Then women show a front of iron;  And, gentle in their manner, they  Do hold things In a quiet way./  Evelyn Grayson did a bold thing in,  a quiet way that morning. I have not  yet' forgotten how marble white she  was, and yet how bravely she came,!  With springing step and lifted chin:  and fearless eyes. I had waited her  coming in the music room, with Its  score of reminders of happy evenings,  in which he had participated. -.The'v.  chair be usually chose, in the corner,,  hear the great bow: window against  which the east 'wind was now driving,  the rain in gusty splashes, took on a!  pathos which moved me to weakness.  The Baudelaire lyric, spread open-  paged upon the music rack of the piano, stirred memories scarcely, less;  harrowing. A photograph, an' ash  tray, a paper knife, all commonplace  objects of themselves,-but so linked  to him by association, became, suddenly, Instruments of emotional torture.  In this environment, under' these  influences, I rose to meet her, wordless. Yet my expression and attitude  must have spoken loudly enough to  confirm the dread that was in her  heart, for even before she spoke I waa  sure that she knew.   And then.she  Cameron in tbe past tense, aa though  ness to be bungled because J am only  smallest corroboration.

So, if I speak plainly,  sir, you'll understand why, and not  think me disrespectful"  I smiled to reassure him, still puzzled, and added:  "Go straight ahead, captain. You  are perfectly right."  "Well," he began. "Ill tell you, Mr.  Clyde. Your story, as you told it to  me, has some weak points in it. You  say, for instance, that you were with  Mr. Cameron almost continuously.  Now I'm hot mentioning the little  while you, were in here, early in tbe  evening, but during the last quarter, jjjoine either.''  of an hour before you gave the alarm,  you weren't with him, either."  I stared at the speaker for an instant in absolute dumb amaze.  "I don't know why you say that," I  said, at length, more hurt than angered. "I, told you that from the moment I last spoke to him, seated be-  Blde him there on tbeafter-deck, until I turned from the rail and found  him gone, not more than two minutes elapsed. And that waa God's  truth."  'Ton said you were listening for  wbat you thought sounded like a mo*  tor boat, didn't you?"  "I did."  "And you were leaning over tbe taff-  rall, looking for It, weren't you?"  "I was."  "But you didn't see It?"  "No, I didn't see it; and I couldn't  hear it after the first few seconds."  Tbe captain had fixed a gaze on me  that seemed aimed to penetrate to my|  bouI'b fiber.   After my answer he wasi  \ silent a moment.   Then he said:  "Where were you, Mr. Clyde, when;  that boat���������motor, tug, or whatever;  she was���������crossed within ten feet of  the dory we are towing?"  Had he struck me ln the face I  could not have been more dumfound-  ed.  part I waa sure that, at the time he  mentioned, no vessel of any description,'bad passed anywhere near ha:'  "What did you make tbe craft out  to be?"  ( "Well, air, l' couldn't aay exactly.  She waa in sight only a minute, coming in range of our own lights. She  I Hooked more like a tug than anything  ' else; but she had more speed than  < iany tug I ever saw. She hadn't the  , Jlnea of a yacht."  "She wasn't a pilot boat?" j  "Oh, no, sir.

I know MacLeod observed it, for he said:  "There'a been a drop in the temperature, in tbe last half-hour. It'll  be more comfortable In my cabin, sir,  if you don't mind coming in, and talking the thing over a bit."  "Good Heavens, MacLeod," I exclaimed, turning on him with nervous  savagery, "do you expect me to sit  down and talk calmly at such a moment? I can't It's all I can do to  stand "till here, for a minute at a  time. I feel I must do something. It*  torture to have one's hands tied this  way."  "J think I know how you feel, sir.  But walking tbe deck will do no good,  ���������nd if you could calm yourself enough  to talk it over quietly, we might get  down to something that would,guide  jit, so to apeak."  , j  "Guide us?" I repeated.  "Yes, sir.   It's not impossible, yon  know, sir, that when he went overboard he, waa picked up."  The light from his cabin porthole,  illuminated us both, and now as he  looked at me he must have seen my  [perplexity.  "You said yourself, sir,"   he   ex*  {plained, "that you thought you heard"  (the exhaust of some sort o' craft not)  ������ar away."  . It waa this reminder, I think, wbichi  brought back my wool-gathering witsi  and steadied me to a perception of the;  real Importance of the captain's plea.;  Of one thing, at least, I was assured:  Cameron was not a suicide. How he  could have gone over the taHrall without my seeing or bearing him, I should  never be able to understand. But gone)  he was, and it lay upon me to dls-i  cover by whose assistance this mars  velous disappearance was accomplished. And so It came about that,';  controlling my futile unrest, I was)  presently seated In MacLeod's swivel1  chair, while he, from a place on the*  jrtde of his berth, fired pointed quetH  jtlons at me, which I either answered1  aa best I could or returned ln kind.  "Now maybe it's none of my business, Mr. Clyde, but ln view of tonight's occurrence I think it's pertl- _   nent to know why there was such a  myself���������just a black  shape,  without   engines, had eluded "our pursuit on  jthorough inspection of the Sibylla be-  lights, and her exhaust muffled, just  |tbe night of Cameron's disappearance,  ln hers and raised her brave eyes to  mine, and low-voiced, but sure and  tremorless, was saying:  "I feared it, Philip.

"Find out what manner of man  wrote them," she amplified.  "But how can you?" I inquired.  "That seems a pretty big undertaking  of itself, for one so small." *  "I have thought of a way," she declared, noncommlttally.  "And what am I to do?" was my  next question, feeling miserably small  beside this efficient child:  "You must give me the letter you  have, and help me look for the others."  The first part of the command was  easy enough of obedience; for the  letter was in my pocket at the moment. But my assistance in searching  for the first two communications was  more energetic than successful. Together we ransacked desks, bureaus,  tables,, closetB, trunks, clothes.' In-  deed, every possible hiding place both  at Cragholt and on the Sibylla was  carefully and systematically .delved  Into and exhausted without reward.  Either Cameron had destroyed the letters, or he had them on his person  when he vanished from the yacht.  ; At .Evelyn's request, however, I  wrote ��������� copies of those two strangely-  couched, malevolent epistles, as nearly as I could remember them; and  save. perhapB, for possibly two or  'three verbal errors they were, I think,  iquite accurate.  "And now," I asked again,- "what am  II to do?"  It was nearly midnight, and I was  leaving her, my car waiting In the  sopping driveway to carry me home.  "You are not to worry any more  -than you possibly can help," she told  me, with a brave little sn lie, "for we  tare going to succeed. And tomorrow  you must go to your office, and keep  very, very silent about what has happened. And then you are to come to  me again in the evening, and I will  tell you all I-have learned."  1 With which she gave me ber hand  ,to kiss, in the odd little French way  'she had���������a way that could scarcely  have been a part of her convent teaching.  Aa I come to review these matters  now, it seems singular that I should  have so readily consented to be guided by this girl's will in a case of such  grave importance; 'yet I cannot but  In courtesy I could not say so.  "All   three," be continued aagely,|  "begin, as you: must have observed,^]  with the same sentence, 'That which!  you have wrought shall in turn  be  wrought upon you.'   That is a quota-j,  tion."

Of course she  had told him nothing as to the circumstances surrounding the letters. As  they bore no dates, and were unad-  dressed, she had him to infer that  they were autographic curiosities1 belonging to her uncle, in which we  were all three interested.  I bad met Professor Griffin on several occasions. Once or twice he had  contributed articles to The Week, and  While we were scarcely intimate, we  were on terms of friendly acquaintanceship. He was an oldish, white-  haired gentfeman, of rather the ascetic type, with long, somewhat peaked  face, and light, watery blue eyes,  which seemed to bulge behind the  strong lenses of his gold-bowed spectacles.  He received me in bis study, a spa-  clous, book-lined room on the second  floor of his old Colonial stone house.  "I have been deeply Interested, Mr.  Clyde," he began, "in the autographs  and copies which Miss Grayson  brought to me.

IV.  Stay, are we doing you wrong       \  Calling you "scum o' the earth,"  Man of the sorrow-bowed head.  Of the features tender yet strong���������  Man of the eyes full of wisdom and mystery  Mingled with patience and dread?  Have I known you in history,  Sorrow-bowed head?     ' '  Were you the poet-king worth  Treasures of Ophir unpriced?  Were you the prophet, perchance, whose art  Foretold how the rabble would mock  That Shepherd of spirits, ere long,  Who should carry the lambs on his heart        <,  And tenderly feed his flock?  Man���������lift that sorrow-bowed head.  Lo! 'tis the face of the Christ!  The vision dies at its birth.  You're merely a butt for our mirth.  You're a "sheeny"���������and therefore despised  And rejected as "scum o' the earth."  Countrymen, bend and invoke  Mercy for us blasphemers,  For that we spat on these marvelous folk,  Nations of darers and dreamers  Scions of singers and seers,  Our peers and more than our peers. ,  "Babble and refuse," we name them  And "scum o' the earth," to shame them.  Mercy for us of the few, young years,  Of the culture so callow and crude,  Of the hands so grasping and rude,  The lips so ready for sneers  At the sons of our ancient more-than-peers.  Mercy for us who dare despise  Men in whose loins our Homer lies;  Mothers of men who shall bring to us  The glory of Titian, the grandeur of Huss;  Children in whose frail arms shall rest  Prophets and singers and saints of the West.  Newcomers all from the Eastern seas,  Help us incarnate dreams like these.  Forget, and forgive, that we did you wrong.  Help us to father a nation, strong  In the comradeship of an equal birth,  In the wealth of the richest bloods of earth.  t*  1      i -  t,  H^>fil|n|ilfi������ti<ii|i4ii������4������������ti'������'|ii|"|ni"t'������it-i"i"i"i"i ^���������f���������<^<���������^������������������^.���������^������������������l������������������^���������^���������^���������^���������������������������^^���������|..t.<������������������^���������^.^^^^^^������������������t'^^'^^-������������^^^^'0^^^^^^^-^~t>^���������^���������^������������������'������������������������������������-  ���������<-ImS"M-������**'M' -i"t' ������������ ���������!������������������!���������'������ <M' ������������i������ >v >i> >* 1 ���������!'

Too  bad   )  SUEZCANAL  London.���������The London office of  the Suez Canal Company recently  announced that the' maximum  draught of water" authorized in ths  canal has been increased by one foot,  thus making it 29 feet. The following table shows the authorized drafts  since the canal was opened:        f  Dpth in mtrs Dpth.in Ft.  and  inches  24fti 4in  25ft. 4in  25ft. 4in  27ft.  28ft.  29ft. ..  and  Date centimeters.  1870 7m. 50cm.  1890 (Apl 15) 7m. 80cm.  1902 (Jan. 1)....8m.  1906 (Jan. 1).. 8m. 23cmr  1908  (Jan. 1).. 8m. 53cm.  1914 ,.(Jan. 1).. 8m. 84cm.  ' The present deepening is of course  due to the increasingdraft of vessels  using the canal, yet of 5,000 vessels  which went through the canal in the  first nine months of 1913 there were  only 29 drawing the maximum draft  of 28 feet. The largest regular user  of the canal at present is the Orient  Company's vessel, the Orama, 13,000  tons. Occasionally the Hamburg-  Amerika liner George Washington, a  vesel of 25,000 tons, passes through....  On River Tyne Alone One Hundred  Vessels of: More Than Four Hundred Thousand Tons Are Launched  in Year.  t  1   EXCHANGE  OR CASH  ..  t  AIRSHIPS BEING  CONSTRUCTED  London.���������Four airships are now  being constructed, as rapidly as possible, by Messrs. Vickers, Limited,  for the navy. Engineering, in an  editorial on this subject, says that  these ships are to be similar to one  which has completed extensive secret trials and has been accepted by  the admiralty air department. The  guaranteed speed is 47 miles an hour,  and two ballonettes are to be fitted  in the envelope, the object of this being to enable -the ^ship to be trimmed  by pumping air from one ballonette  to the other. These ships are of the  non-rigid type, and an important feature in their portability. When deflated they can be packed on lorries  or carried on board ships.  These four ships, "are to form the  nuclus of a squadron for the training  of officers and men in .the handling of  airships for the ,navy, and. they will  be equipped with special regard ito  this aim, the acquisition of experience."

Sulgrave manor is the ancestral home of  the Washingtons.  An international committee of  management has been appointed and  the American ambassador has accepted the chairmanship of this committee for himself and his successors.  Lanier Washington of New ��������� York  has presented to this committee the  only authentic portrait of Mary Bell  Washington, mother of the president,  and this will be hung at Sulgrave.  RUSSIAN LIQUOR LAWS  New and Drastic Clauses Added by  Council of Empire.  St. Petersburg.���������The council of  the Empire yesterday added drastic  clauses to the bill for the regulation  of the_ sale of alcohol. The new  clauses prohibit the sale of spirits in  towns t between 11 o'clock at night  and 9 o'clock in the morning, and  after <������ o'clock in the evening in the  country districts. They prohibit entirely the sale of liquors in a number  of public establishments, including  government offices, the- refreshment  rooms in theaters, concert halls and  moving picture shows, and in public  gardens.  THIRD-CLASS  LUXURIES  The latest vessel to be added to  the list carrying'emigrants from this  country to Canada is the Alsatian, of  the Allan line, which left Liverpool  for Halifax on Saturday.  In design and construction the vessel represents the latest thing in  naval architecture, especially as regards the third-class passengers, for  whom the accommodation provided is  palatial compared with what it wafc  20 years ago. _    .  JAPANESE HAS '    .���������   ,  BEEN U. S. CITIZEN  "   FOR 18 YEARS  Los Angeles, Cal.���������For 18 years  Ulyssie S. Kaneko, rated as 'one of  Southern California's wealthiest Japanese, has enjoyed all the privileges  of American 'citizenship, including  the right to vote. Federal offficials,  investigating his status, have discovered that Kaneko is the qnly naturalized Japanese in the United States.'  He was granted full naturalization'  papers by the Superior court.  \ Proceedings will be instituted by i  the government to revoke the Or-j  iental's naturalization papers."  Explaning how Kaneko could have'  had   the  privileges  of  an   American!  citizen for so many years, the chief.]  naturalization examiner    in   .Boston]  said that seven years ago the lower]  courts had power to issue naturaliza-J  tion papers, and    the    only  ; record!  made of the proceedings in, court was j  the certificate held by the applicants  Sometimes, through an oversight, ne-i  gleet  or  ignorance  of  the  law  the]  clerk or presiding officer would pres(  cnt a certificate to a person not enl  titled to it, and when' it was discover^  ed the attorney-general would makej  an effort to have it annulled.   He def  clared that no Japanese nor. Chihesi  can be naturalized unless by special  act of Congress, because they are no  "free white persons."  Cape Town, South Africa���������As  showing the magnitude of irrigation  schemes carried out in South Africa  by co-operative effort, it may be  mentioned that on. the Great Fish  river alone there will shortly be a  continuous chain of irrigation works  extending over a length of nearly  150 miles.  Some ofthesc scemes have involved an expenditure of between 1100,-  0001 and 155,0001. Experiments are  now in progress in the Kalahari,  where drilling is being done in the  most westerly corner of the Union.  Similar operations are being carried  out tn Bechuanaland in connection  with land settlement schemes of the  government'. ^  I      ORIENTAL NEWS .    I  CHINA AS A MARKET  London.���������In recent years about 40  per cent of {he machinery imported  by China comes' from Great Britain,  according to a brochure issued by the  British Engineers' Association. This  publication says that the population  of China is about 450,000,000 people,  and the value of her imports of machinery is increasing very rapidly.  Japan is generally considered to  have progressed rapidly, but it took  her 30 years to build 3,000 miles of  railways, I while China completed  railways amounting to a length of  5,000 miles during- the 12 years before the revolution. China's demand  for engineering plant has thus' increased very rapidly. In 1910 the  engineering imports-amounted -to  10,000,0001, in 1911 to 12,000,0001.  while in 1912 they nearly reached  12,500,0001.  t I  have four lots at White  ������  Rock, B. C.

A great deal of naval work has been  done on the Tyne, the largest ships  launched during the year being the  Rio de Janerio, originally ordered by  Brazil, but now the Osman I., with a  displacement of 27,500 tons, and the  Almirante Latorre, 23,000 tons, for  the Chilean navy.5  a The cruiser Birmingham and several, torpedo boat destroyers have  been launched and among the cargo  boats perhaps them ost interesting  are the fleet of oil tank steamers  which are being,constructed. Many  cargo boats and passenger ships have  also been completed, and the year  has been one of great activity in all  branches of shipbuilding.  On the Wear, the largest ship  launched in 1913 was the San Jeron-  imo, an oil vessel built by Messrs.  Doxford & Sons, and in other ship-  building' centers, while the number of  ships launched does not always show  an increase, the tonnage is in nearly  every case greater than in 1912. The  profits earned by shipbuilders, however, inthis year of maximum'output are not neariy so great as might  be expected on account of the labor  troubles, the unrest among the men,  and the. bad time keeping. The result of this is that there has been  considerable delay in completting  many of tehships.  NEW CHINESE PORTS.  Several Points in the Orient Opened  to Foreign Twde  H. M. minister in Peking has forwarded a telegraph message to the Foreign Office to the effect" that a Chinese presidential order has been promulgated announcing that the following ports ��������� are to  be opened to foreign trade: Kalgan,  Dolonor, Kueihua-cheng, Taonan,  Chihfeng, Lungkowhan (Shantung),  and Hulutao near Newchwang.  END OF POPPY CULTURE.  Farmers of Fukien Devoting Them-  V selves to Potatoes and Corn  Amoy, China.���������With the development of .civilization along western  lines the isolated Province of Fukien is rapidly undergoing important  changes- It may soon be imagined  that a chunk has been taken but of  some western farming region and  laid down in China, for there are in  creasing evidences that fields' once  wholly devoted to the poppy will be  turned over to potatoes and corn.  Progress has put its foot down on  the opium business. Outside of China  there are probably few persons who  realize how great a blow this action  has dealt at a means of sustenance to  a province whose resources were already overtaxed to maintain its  crowded population. Opium has always brought a god price in the market and formed an important source  of-the farmer's revenue. It is small  wonder  that  campaigns  against -the  such a suddenness that farmers were  not conscious that the government  was in earnest until they saw their  entire season's work lost. This year  a new method is to be tried. Instead  of waiting until the plants are grown  and then destroying the crop, the government has served notice that all  opium plants will be destroyed as  soon as they Appear in the field. In  many instances the summary destruction of the crop last year caused riot  and bloodshed, but the notices this  year seem to be convincing farmers  that the government means buisness,  and the destruction of the young  plants 'already under way has not  caused the strife which resulted last  yeart The new policy is meeting  with the approval of the farmers, and  once-they-see-that they-must-give up  the poppy they are turning, to indigo,  potatoes and corn.

Fifty Ordered from Germany, to Be  Delivered .Next Slimmer.  Berlin,���������However innocuous President .Wilson and Secretary Bryan  may consider the foreign policy and  military and naval plans of Japan,  there is no disposition in Berlin to  minimize the necessity of keeping  vigilant watch on the ambition and  manoeuvres of the Mikado's government, according to an authority here.  Germany is paying the closest possible attention to them. Nothing now  in sight is responsible for the measures taken by the Kaiser's government which is taking a far-sighted  view and contemplates contingencies  of the distant rather than the immediate future. It is felt here, however,  that European and: American statesmen would be indulging in the most  fatal sort of "ostrich policy" if they  failed to keep closely in touch with  '"developments in Japan, and to make  their own plans accordingly.  Japan has just ordered fifty German aeroplanes, to be delivered in the  summer of 1914.
