 W3  Published in the Interests of Greater; Vancouver and the Western People  em*  VOLUME V.  VANCOUVER. British Columbia, FEBRUARY 27, 1914  5 Cents Per Copy  No. 42  The Railway Policy of the McBride Government  .   ' ������        t        w  \  Resignation of Edwaro 3old,  eouver Councillor-Affidavits of Corruption on Kingsway Paving  GOVERNMENT RAILWAY POLICY  EXTENSION OF P. O. E. R. R. TO  PEAOE RIVER COUNTRY  The Government at Victoria must take peculiar pleasure in the Master's words, "Blessed  are ye when all near shall revile you and speak  evil of you falsely." If there is no very large  opposition in Parliament, platform and press outside are ringing out with ever increasing volume  charges of graft and incompetency, great and  small. '  The chief complaint seems now to be the Bail-  road Policy, and yet if any one item in the McBride policy has been endorsed up to the hilt by  the Province, it is this railroad policy.  ���������  On Tuesday the Premier brought down a bill  providing for the extension of the Pacific Great  Eastern Railway into Peace River country, 330  smiles north and east of Port George. The bill  stipulates that the company shall commence the  , Peace River extension within three months after  the passing of the act and that the entire line  shall be open to traffic within three years. We  understand that already active survey work has  begun and that lively construction work will,  ere long, be in progress on the P. G. E. system  both north and south of Fort George.. :��������� ' ,  This is good news indeed.   The Western Call  looks and longs for the coming millenium when  all wrongs will be righted���������indeed we believe  that, a much better system   than   corporation-  owned;   railroads is a p1 resent ' possibility���������but  British' Columbia Voters, both.   Provincial   and  ' Municipal, have decided against public ownership, in spite of all the Western Call can say, and  we are forced to choose the next best thing in  ;   sight���������which is undoubtedly tbe present goveru-  , ment.  ^,. The,JV4H.E.. R. Reruns through one of the ,r>.  loveliest portions of this earth. A thousand'  miles of unusrpassed country in scenic beauty,  and above all, in healthy, wealth producing possi-  ~ bilities. By this R. R. will be opened up the very  richest mining districts in B. C, as yet almost untouched, because of lack of transportation. The  great cattle ranching areas of B. C. will also be  tapped together with the finest dairying and  mixed farming country in "the world. There is  room for a million happy, healthy and wealth  producing homes on the P. G. E. line twixt Vancouver and Fort George, and we predict an  amazing immigration in that direction as soon as  the truth becomes known about the Lilloet district.  The McBride government, like the rest of us,  is not without faults; but its Railroad Policy is  ���������under present -"conditions���������the* best in sight,  and almost unanimously endorsed by the people.  We do not doubt that public interests could be  better protected than they are or have been, but  as an offset to the charges of extravagance and  reckless expenditures hurled against the present  government we would call attention to the figures given below on the Laurier estimate and  actual cost of National Transcontinental put  through by the late Liberal government. There  is a proverb which says: "Two blacks db not  make a white," but there is also another proverb  which helps us out in this age of mixed good and  evil���������namely, "Of two evils, choose the least."  The Western Call most emphatically prefers  the ills it knows of rather than flee to those unknown with such possibilities as the National  Transcontinental in view.  /  LAURIER ESTIMATE VS. REAL COST  OF NATIONAL TRANSCONTINENTAL  Preliminary Estimates of Cost  When the bill for the construction of the National Transcontinental railway was being discussed in the House of Commons the Hon. Mr.  Fielding, then Minister of Finance, stated that he  had been advised by experienced railway men  that the cost of such a railway from Quebec to  Winnipeg, 1,344 miles, would be $35,000 per mile,  or $47,040,000, and from Moncton to Quebec, 460  miles, at $31,250 per mile, or $14,375,000. Total,  $61,415,000.  Actual Cost on Which Interest Is to Be Paid by  '���������.,'/__/��������� /Lessees.,- ���������'���������-.���������-���������'  Contracts Were let for most of the''road,' and  on September 30th, 1911, there had already been  spent $109,000,000, and Mr. Gordon Grant, the  chief engineer, then estimated that when completed the road will, exclusive of interest, have  cost $161,300,000.       .  If the road is completed at this cost by the  end of 1914 the/Grand Trunk Pacific will commence to pay rent at the beginning of 1912 on  this amount with $18,700,000 interest added,  making an annual rental of $5,400,000, or $14,-  800 a day. t  Actual Cost to the Country  Assuming that the Grand Trunk Pacific railway company will commence to pay interest on  the cost of construction in 1912, the road will  have cost the country for principal and interest  $234,651,521. This amount has been arrived at  by calculating the interest on the amounts expended during each year from the end of that  year up to the end of 1921.  s  ������o   /m*4��������� /f������0/S,  A SAO EPISODE  In Sooth  Vancouver Polltloa  i  i     ��������� *  Leonard Janes, for six years a faithful and energetic servant of the  municipality of South Vancouver, has passed away.  Leonard Janes was South Vancouver's tax  collector, ancl  during  his  years of service he made many friends.. His death came as a Wow to the whole  arirfrieipality.  ������e was 25 years bf~#e', rniS'#^thoughtt������haveheeninthepiiilcof-  health up to a few days before his death.      ; i  Jt might be said that Leonard Janes gave his lift for the welfare of the  community. Jt was against the adviceof his physician that he persisted in attending to his duties at the Municipal Uall right up almost to the day before his  passing. . .  Few men were more familiar with the science of municipal government  than the late Mr* Janes, As a boy he was articled for three years to the municipal engineer to the Eerne Bay Urban District Council, Brent, England. Later  he served as surveyor to that municipality. He was appointed assistant C. M. C.  in South Vancouver in 1908, and the following year was promoted to the post of  assessor and collector of taxes. Jn all his duties the late Mr. Janes showed an  exactness and general efficiency which made him stand out among his fellows.  His department was at all times thoroughly systematized and running without  the usual hitches and difficulties.  There is very little doubt that the drastic overthrow of the entire municipal staff of South Vancouver contributed to, if it did not actually cause, the  sudden _break down of Mr. Janes' health, ending in his sudden death. A man of  peculiar sensitiveness, he undoubtedly wilted under the ruthless methods of the  man responsible for these upheavals.  Mr. Gold has, during the past year, publicly and privately made charges  of incompetency and graft on the part of. the old council and its staff. On the  strength of these charges���������boldly made and oft repeated���������the people, mad-  denecTby the stoppage of all worS, caused, by the financial hold up-f-common to  almost every municipality throughout Canada���������voted to place municipal affairs  in the hands of a new council.  Are these charges true? Humor says, yes! Why, then, are not  these men called to account ? What south Vancouver most needs and, we believe,  most earnestly desires, is to clean up the past and remain clean in the future.  The old staff has been dismissed with the exception only of those who  could riot be dispensed with, and, so far, it looks as if "spoils to the victors" was  the only reason for replacement.  Mr. Gold has already been guilty of what we consider to be the very  grossest example of bad taste ever exhibited in our municipality. Two thousand  dollars per Ward had been allotted to each councillor to be expended to the best  interest of each Ward. In Ward 5, Mr. Gold has expended the $2,000 almost, if  not entirely, on grading, levelling and improving the avenues of approach to  his own property. If you don't believe it go and see for yourself. Notice, on  the Gold property, amounting to 30 acres, there is only 1 house, and we understand only 3 more lots sold. If there has ever been a more gross abuse of representative power in South Vancouver we do not know of it.  There can be no doubt now, that Mr. Gold's reason for his frenzied campaign against the paving contract was based on personal motives, because of his  interest in so large a nonrrevenue producing property with double frontage on  Main street. We understand also that there was an even stronger motive in his  personal quarrel with the Creosoting company to which further reference may  yet be made. "' ' y       ;  Altogether the Gold episode in South Vancouver reminds us of the old  fable: The frogs desiring a king. Our readers will remember that, in answer  to the frogs' petition Jove sent down a log. The frogs at first delighted in the  quiet decent log, upon which they could sit with impunity. But soon they tired  of their honest log and because Jove to send another king. Jove sent a crane���������  who ate up all the frogs���������with apologies to honest Jim, we recall this fable.  (Stop Press News)  Mr, Gold has resigned in consequence of threatened action.   Before refighing he placed  affidavits in hands of council containing a typewritten confession by ex-Councillor John Third  and implicating two or more of last years councillors.   Full details of confession and how obtained next issue.  BORDEN GOVERNMENT AT WORK  BON. L. P. PELLETIXB--  P08TMABTBK OINItAL  i i<? -  , Every important reform in the national machinery of a country's business has ite Beginnins;  in the mind of one man eager and desirous for the ~  welfare of the people, and the inauguration of  Parcels Post is one such striking example.   Hon.!"  Louis Philippe PeUetier, Postmaster-General in  the Borden cabinet, has instituted parcels noafc ;  not because he was forced by public opin|on,vbut7  by reason of a strong desire to assist the legislation that the Post Office Department has,organ-.  used since Confederation.  L. P. Pelletier, father of Panels Post, is tbe  leader of the French-Canadian seetion of the Conservative party in the House of Commons, and ho  is following in illustrious footsteps/ There always have been, in every cabinet since Confederation, Btrong men from Quebec, to whom the '  business of government was,i science, and the  art of politics a delight. And the Borden Cabinet  is no exception to the rule. Hon. Mr. Pelletier  has built up a reputation in the House and out of  it, which has secured for him the admiration '  alike of friend and foe. This reputation is being  enhanced, not by fitful spasms of meteorio legis-  Jation, but by dint of solid hard application to  business. ,        > ���������  . -,  A Picturesque Partonattsy  The Postmaster-General is a picturesque personality. jHe is a Prince Rupert in debate, riding  into conflict' with sword drawn and meeting his  enemy with clash and clang. Pelletier never takes  back water, never recedes from a position, but if  fearless and fair.  A Quebec day in the House of  Commons is the signal for a crowded chamber,  did notv;know the new Postmaster-General very  .his natural foe,   the   es-portmafsyjtensral, fo-  wordy ^warfare.   Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux, ex-  Postmaster-General, is a much disappointed man.  After years of jealousies and bickerings with his  conferee from Quebec province, he became the  leader of the French-Canadian race in the Laurier cabinet.   Then he saw visions of a knighthood as a reward for-his diplomatic missions to  Japan and South Africa.  But on September 21,  19U, his upward march was rudely broken and  interrupted.   Premier Borden was returned to  power and patronage, and he did not like it.  He  did not know tbe new Postmaster-Genreal yery  well, and at first began to bullyj him and taunt  him, until he learned of his mistake.   Pelletier  was his master.   In effectiveness of retort, sallies  of wit and stinging repartee, the new Postmaster-  General outshone his predecessor.   Tbe members  of the House of Commons look forward to a contest between   Hon. Louis Phelippe   and -Hon.  Rodolphe because it is more than interesting-  it is strenuous.            -        -   -���������  (Continued on Page 7)  STATESMENSWP-A &BJI*AL TRJBDTB  "To the manner in which premier Borden,  presented the Redistribution Bill in the House of  Commons yesterday afternoon no exception could  be taken by the most sensitive of bis political opponents. The Premier discussed a question  which is loaded to the brim with possibilities for  bitter controversy from a detached and entirely  unbiased point of view. He has never appeared  better in the role of statesman. Any one listening  to the Premier's speech without other knowledge,  of his Government or the men who comprise it,  could not help being impressed with the idea that  the present administration was founded upon  high principles."���������Ottawa Free Press (Lib.),  February 11, 1914.

THE KZKUTU DIFFICULTY  The building of the Uganda railway in East  Africa opened up a vast field of country  to the touch of missionary efforts. The Church  Missionary Society of England, Scotch Presbyterians, Methodists, Friends, Lutherans, and various other sects have missions in the district, but  strongest and largest of all these is the mission  of the Church Missionary Society. Roman Catholics are there in force and so are Mohammedans.  The Protestants found that their divisions were  confusing to the natives, who felt the,strength  of a religion which presented a solid front, like  Roman Catholicism. A conference was, therefore;  held at Kikuyu, last June, to formulate a plan  for united action, or federation," of the different  missionary bodies working in British East Africa;  The meetings were held in the schoolroom of the  Church of Scotland Mission. Bishop Willis of  Uganda, presided, and Bishop Peel, of Mombasa,  was in attendance. Reports from various sources  of the spirit of the conference show that it was  spiritual, wise and/farsighted. Its recommendations���������recommendations only, not decisions��������� v  were simple and in no way subversive of church  discipline and precedent at home, but suggestive  of a possible working basis on the field. At the  close of the conference it seemed to these Christian-gentlemen fitting and desirable-to unite in a-  communion service. - This was done, the service  being held in the Church of the Scotch/Mission,  where ttie Bishop 6f Mombasa had just unveiled  two memorial windows in honor of a missionary  of the Church of Scotland. A Scotch Presbyterian minister preached the sermon md the sacraments were administered by Bishop Willis, of  Uganda. The delegates went home feeling that  they had received a great blessing and that the  cause of Christ had been greatly strengthened.  Those who had shared the uplift of the JCi-  kuyu meeting spread abroad the good news and  reported to their home societies the recommendations of the Kikuyu conference.% When certain  ultra-conservative churchmen in England and  elsewhere heard of the' communion; service which  had crowned the meetings,' there rose a storm  of criticism of the Anglican bishops for having  admitted to the LorcTs table these unconfirmed,  though doubtless estimable, missionaries of other  bodies. The discusison, largely in newspapers  _and religious periodicals fct first, grew hotter and  hotter, till at length the'Bishop of Zanzibar  charged the Bishops of Uganda and Mombasa  with heresy and called upon" the Archbishop of v  Canterbury, as primate of the Church of England,  to render a judgment on them. Bishop Tucker-  Uganda's predecessor���������and Dr. Handiey<. .Mbule,  Bishop of Purham, have declared that they stand  with the two accused bishops. Dr. Moule says  boldly: "If the bishops of Uganda and Mombasa  .are arraigned for heresy for their share of responsibility for a program which I think to be  true to the mind of our Master and full of promise for His work, I for one would willingly take  my place beside them," while Dr. Tucker still  more decidedly writes to the London Timest "If  Bishop Willis is a heretic, so am I. If he is a  schismatic, so am I. If he is to.be sent to the  stake, I am prepared to go with him."  H.'H. Stevens, M.P., made the statement before leaving Ottawa that,the harbor improvements at Vancouver now in hand would entail an  expenditure of $10,000,000 to" $11,000,000. It is  high time that such improvements should be  taken in hand. Coast harbor accommodation is  about the poorest in the world, and Mr. Stevens  is the first member of Parliament to. recognize  this. The ^vigorous Bteps he has taken to remedy  the defect should be\ appreciated.���������Mechanical  Engineer and Electrical Record.  Sir George Paish states that $2,500,000,000 of  British capital is invested in Canada, of which  $300,000,000 was invested last year. United  States investments in Canada aggregate $500,-  000,000. In the next fifteen years the Statist estimates British investments in Canada will  amount to $5,000,000,000.  The wealth production of British Columbia  from natural resources for 1913 is estimated as  folloAvs: Mining, $31,000,000; timber, $30,000,-  000; fisheries, $14,455,488. \  More than 150,000 women, Chicago's "newest  citizens," last week became legal voters of Chicago by registering. !l  Hon. L. P. Pelletier  Postmaster-General of Canada  BORDEN GOVERNMENT AT WORK  I Continued frum\PaQe 1*  A Cabinet of Hard Workers  The Borden Cabinet is composed of hard  workers���������men who are earning the gratitude of  the country by devotion to duty. The members  of the present cabinet are practical men. Last  summer Hon. Frank Cochrane made a special  survey trip to the Hudson's bay. Hon. J. D.  Hazen visited at first hand the fisheries of the  Dominion, and Hon. L, P. Pelletier the post offices  from east to west. The result of the Postmaster-  General's work is evident everywhere. The post  office system never was better organized, and  never were postmasters from coast to coast in a  more contented frame of mind.  While the regime of Hon. L. P. Pelletier will  be most intimately associated with the establishment of the parcels post system, the work of the  Postmaster-General in securing a reduction in  cable rates between Canada and the Mother  Country wilt be remembered. Nothing tends  more surely to increase business and social relations than a facilitated cable service, and the  great reductions secured, by Hon. Mr. Pelleier in  1912 have fulfilled their object: When the history of the negotiations in England between Canada 's Postmaster-General and the representatives of the powerful cable companies comes to be  written it will be found that the dexterity, the  skill, the logical and persuasive powers of the  eminent French-Canadian triumphed, as they did  in his recent negotiotions /with the railway companiesover the parcels pelt.v  v. An Intricate Department  ^ Pelletier can well be called a watchdog" for  the people. Excepting the customs department,  there is no part of the machine of the country *s  business where officials need to exercise. more  care in seeing that all the requisite revenues are  collected.    The aim of the Postmaster-Generali  ; an4 it runs right through to the humiblest letter  carrier, is efficiency and good service. Recently,  as an earnest of his desire to promote the interests of the employees, an increase of salary was  madeto rural postmasters. /Pelletier takes an in-  ��������� terest ia those in the departments believing that  weU paid and ^contented employees v make for  goodl results in work.  / In the House of Commons and put of the  House of Commons, Hon. Mr. pelletier has done  well. As i debater, be is pointed, effective and  reasonable. Io his department he is all business.  No detail escapes his attention, and he quickly  mastered the intricacies of the post office system;  When Mr. pelletier entered the cabinet there  were many prejudices against' him, worked up  by the Liberal politicians of the province. These  filtered through to Ontario^ and-the other English provinces, and remained there for some time.  ^Suish��������� ffiis^kles^waysT^^  most politicians.   But these prejudices have been  conquered and Pelletier's personality has been  the victorious factor ..  ^ Quickly W������B^ Them Over  An eloquent illustration occurred on the oc-;  casion of the Massey Hall, Toronto, dinner to  Premier Borden, after his famous 1911 victory.  Mr. Pelletier represented Quebec province, and  when he rose to speak there were a few cheers,  because he was unknown, and because, perhaps, he  had been libelled by newspapers. But he had not  spoken for five minutes ere the huge building resounded to enthusiastic applause. The well knit  frame of the fighting Frenchman faced his audience, and in excellent English the Postmaster-  General lampooned his enemies with book and  verse. The Toronto audience loves a warrior, and  it rose to the orator and re-echoed with hearty  applause his sentiments, and the7 crowd was won  over.  Pelletier is a young man in his fifty-seventh  year. As a law students he was distinguished,  and as a lawyer he is one of the most brilliant in  his province. His straight figure is evidence of  his military career as an officer in the 9th Vol-  tigueurs of Quebec.  Pelletier is the real stuff out of which statesmen are made. He has courage and daring,  coupled with an almost Scotch caution, and the  high place he now occupies in the councils of his  native country has been the prize for merit and  good service to the people.

This sum, it  appears, comes from a fund known as  the Emperor William's Fund for, the  Encouragement of Evangelical Missions in German Colonies and Territories. It is delightful to find that  the many-sided German Emperor has  time to give thought to such things as  evangelical misions. The great ones  of the earth do not distinguish them-  ���������selves in these days by much evidence of such practical interest in the  progress of the Kingdom of Christ.  It is pleasant, also, to feel that the,  society, which is not German in its  origin, its management, or the body  of its supporters, but which happens  to be at work in German territory,  has gained the approval of the German authorities to such an extent  that a grant is made for the encouragement of some portion of its  work. .  ���������    ���������    ���������  UNION BIBLE SCHOOL  IN NANKING   \  One is that Kansas people saved  more than twenty-nine million dollars  lastv.year through prohibition; according to figures just made pnblic.

One of the chief Tysons for testing cows not simply once in a while,  but at regular intervals,; is found in  the fact that they are known to vary  so greatly and often so inexplicably".'  Apart altogether from what are  termed normal variations from milk,  ing to milking, besides the variations  betwen morning and evening, and the  variations between the fore milk/and  the stoppings, careful observers have  noticed in two days a variation in  the test of almost 2 per cent of fat  in the milk of individual cows, for  which no reason can be assigned.  Obviously then it would be quite  unfair to judge any cow on any one  isolated test when it might be 3.0  one - day and 4.8 another day.  Which could you take? A fair and  just way is to take samples regularly and. test a composite sample  once a month. Then there will be  credit given where it is really due,  not necessarily to the one that is  supposed to be a high tester because  she is of fancy; name or fancy price,  but frequently to some tacitly despised individual which is really the  queen of the dairy. It will pay to select those cows that are known, not  supposed, to yield milk rich in fat.  Regina, Feb.���������The Royal North  West Mounted.

Regina, Feb.���������-Some idea of the extent of the increase in valuation of  western property may be gained by a  citation of instances referred to by  Regina's city auditor. In 1905���������the  year Regina was created a city with  a population of 5,000���������blocks 119  and 122 could have been purchased  for $2,000 each, whereas at the present time, the valuation is computed to  be $100,000 each. During this period  Regina has increased to a city of  50,000 people, so that it will be seen  that the increase has been justified.  It is also interesting to note that the  majority of Regina's wealthy men  have profitted by this increase. It  was during the past three years that  the greatest increase in population  has taken place, the city having  grown in this time from 15,000 to 50,-  000.  Regina, Feb.���������An effort is being  made to develop the flour milling industry in Saskatchewan, as it is believed that by this means grain growing can be made even more profitable  for the Saskatchewan farmer than it  is at the present time. Following  out this idea a' flour" mill with a capacity to mill 3,000 barrels per day  will be established at Regina as soon  as possible by Leitch Bros. Milling  Company. It is expected that other  mills will be established at Regina.  Dr. Julius Richter, author of "The  Missions' in the. Near East," writes  with authority. He says that of the  225,000,000 of Mohammedans, but 35,-  000,000 are at presnt under Moslem  rule, while 160,000,000 are under  Christian rule.

(5) But there is other evidence in  the favor- of the Mosiac authorship  of the Pentateuch worth noting, viz.,  the i Samaritan Bible which contains  th������ whole Pentateuch and the Pentateuch only. Mr. Isaacs, the son of  the Samaritan High Priest of Shec-  hem, visited, this country only a year  (Continued  from  Last Week.) .  and true history, until it is proven to  be false by facts and not mere suppositions.  Sayce. the great archaelogist of  Oxford (who, by the way, knows as  mush Hebrew as Driver and a good  deal more regarding all the kindred  languages, for he has spent months  every year for about twenty-five  years reading these languages from  the tablets and the monuments) says,  "Hebrew is a dead language, and  when we ask the analyst to apply his  method to our own English or to  modern French and similarly divide  and dissect the nove's of Besant and  Rice or Erckmann and Chatrain,  which we know to be composite, he  is obliged to confess that he cannot  do it. It is only to a dead language,  imperfectly known, and of which but  a fragment of its literature has been  preserved, that his methods.will apply." Mark Twain once resolved to  write a serious book, so, he wrote  "Personal Recollections of Joan of  Arc," and had Harpers publish it anonymously, and for two years he kept  all the greatest scholars of the world  guessing, but no one ever dreamed  of attributing it to Mark Twain, not  even his closest friends���������it |was not  Mark Twain's style. Just so it was  when Spurgeon published "John  Ploughman's Talks."  When the -very best English scholars can detect so little from the style  of an author in their own language,  how absurd of these critics to claim  so  much  for  their  discoveries  in  a  or two ago and had a copy of this  Bible with him. They tell us that'it  was written by Abishua, a great  grandson of Aaron, and is over thirty-  five hundred years old. The critics  try to make out that the Samaritans  got his Bible about Ezra or Neh'e-  miah's time. But this is absurd, for  at that time the Jews and the Samaritans hated each other worse than the  Catholics and the Orangemen of Ire.  land hate each other today. Then before the critics can prove their theory  re. the Pentateuch they must disprove  the contention of these honest Samaritans; that they had their Pentateuch intact for over 3,500 years.  Now, .Jesus, who was conscious of  his existence from all eternity, and  who knew Moses personally (for He  recognized him and spoke; with him  on the Mount of Transfiguration),  says that Moses did write the Pentateuch. John 5:4546. "There is one  who accuses you even Moses in  whom ye trust. For had ye believed  Moses ye would have believed me,  for -he wrote of me." John 7:19.  ''Did not Moses give you the law?"

Now, to show clearly the foolish  suppositions of the critics, take their  explanation re the origin of Deuteronomy (the book of law). They  quote 2 Kings- 22nd chapter, where  we are told that in the eighteenth  year of Josiah's reign (about 622 B.  C), Hilkiah, the high priest, found -a  book called by him the "Book of  the Law," in the Temple Swhen they  were repairing it. The king and the  people were so stirred by the reading  of this long lost book, that it led to  a great reformation.  The critic's theory is that Deutron-  omy was composed about this time  by some unknown Priest or Prophet  and then hidden away in the Temple  with the express design of bringing  about a reformation when it should  be found.   The critics admit that the  people   never   dreamed   that   it  was  composed by men of their own time,  but accepted it as the genuine law of  Moses.    They say, too, it was this  fact  gave  it  its authority.    Is this  credible or even likely?   No.   A new  book does not look ��������� like an ancient  one, and  especially is this true regarding a new and an ancient parchment.    Why, the ink on this parchment could scarcely have. been dry,  and to say that men as intelligent as  Jeremiah and King Josiah could have  been so easily deceived is to brand  them as a pack of simpletons.    (2)  But they say_ perhaps^ the book was  disfigured to make it look old. Then,  according -to these critics, the Book  of Deutronomy is a pious fraud, the  result of a deliberate intention to deceive.    But as  Weiner   says  in  his  "Origin of the Pentaeuch," "What is  the position of the* man who alleges  that God spake certain words at Sinai, if he in fact, knows that he has  himself  composed  these  alleged  utterances?"    Why   such   a  man  is  a  base liar and  deceiver.'  Then  think  of the psychological improbability of  such a liar being capable of producing  the   Decalogue.    (3)    Again   Josiah  speaks of  the  disobedience  of then-  fathers to the    commands    of    this  "Book of the Law."   Would he have  thus spoken if he had not known .for  an    absolute    certainty    that    their  fathers had had this very book of the  law?    No.  (4) Then recall the demands of  "the Book of the Law" upon the people. It demanded (a) that they  should all pay tithes of their corn,  oil and cattle to support the Lev-  itical"order ot which they havenever  before heard, (b) That they also  hand over to these same Levites (of  whom they had never heard before)  for their own use forty-eight of their  best cities. Yet the "critics want us  to believe that there was nov one  there to rise up and express astonishment, and demand to be shown the  positive proof that "the Book of  Law" really was written by Moses,  as it claimed to be. Though it had  never been in existence before, and  they had riever even heard of it, they  all fell right in line and meekly  obeyed its precepts. Is there anything in the whole range of conservative beliefs quite so hard to accept  as this fool theory?

What blasphemy, in the light ,of 2  Cor. 3:14, where Paul says regarding  all the Jews of his day (including  rabbis and people,) "Their minds  were blinded for until this day re-  maineth the same veil untaken away  in the reading of the Old Testament,  which veil is done away in Christ."  Then if Christ tore away the veil  which hid from the minds of the  Jews the true meaning 'of the Old  Testament, what nonsense and what  blasphemy to tell us that "he held  the'current Jewish notions regarding  the Old Testament." V     '   s  But supposing Christ was thus deceived during His life, he surely knew  differently after His death and resurrection,���������at all events it falls upon  the critics to prove that He did not,  ���������and they cannot do it in the fact  of Rom. 8:34. Listen! "Who is he  that condemeth. It is Christ that  died, yea rather that is risen again,  who is even at the right hand of  God."    The risen Christ is now -at  but I must hasten on to the story of  Jonah which all the critics, without  a single exception, say is a mere parable or allegory. George Adam  Smith, in his book, "Modern Criticism  and the Preaching of the Old Testament," p. 89, says: "The only view  of the story of Jonah that does justice to its teaching and explains its  place in a bok of prophetic discourses, is that which treats it not as real  history but as a sermon in the form  of a parable upon the great evangelical truth that God has granted to'the  Gentiles also repentance unto life."  Now the rationalist denies, the story  of Jonah because he holds miracles  to be impossible, but why should a  Christian reject it? Even John S.  Mill admits that miracles "must be  given credence if one believes in an  omnipotent God who created this  world and man.        '  Regarding this story question Sir  Robert Anderson says: "To say God  could not deliver Jonah is Atheism;  to say He would not is nonsense; to  say He did not is to pour contempt  upon the words of our Divine Lord  and repudiate His; authority as a  teacher." '';.';";  Yes, Jesus .Christ.believed the story  of Jonah "to be true, for He says r in  Matt. 12:40-41, "For as Jonah was  three days and three, nights in the  whale's belly, so shall the Son of  Man be three days and three; nights  in the heart of the earth. The men  of Nineveh shall rise in judgment  with this generation and shall condemn it,; because they repented at  the teaching of Jonah and behold a  greater than Jonah is here." Here  then is a clear.-'"cut statement regarding the-future. In John 14:2 Christ  says, regarding His statement that  there are many mansions in heaven,  "If ~it were not so I would have told  you." If it were not true that these  Ninevites converted \ under Jonah  would; rise in judgment, would not  Christ have .told thern so?  Nowthei. word ; translated; whale-  here is "Ketos" and means any sea  monster-r-whale Or shark. We' know  that sharks have been found in the  Mediterranean with whole deer inside of them, so they could easily  swallow a man. But this great fish,  was in all probability a whale.  Prof. George Macloskie. (Dept. of  Biology, Princeton), tells us that  when off the coast of Japan he got  acquainted with Roy Mathews, one  of the greatest living authorities on  whales, for whaling has been his life's  business. One day he asked him if  he had any difficulty believing the  story of Jonah, and to his great surprise  he   replied,  "None  vhatever."  to the king, and at once word would  go out that this Man was Daggan's  own messenger. Then all repented  from the least even to the greatest.  But, says someone, is this in harmony with God's method of dealing  with the heathen? Would He thus  meet their expectation? I think He  would for our Heavenly Father honors a sincere faith wherever He finds  it. Read Rom. 2:14, "When the Gentiles which have not the law, do by  nature the things contained in the  law, they are a law unto  themselves. Which simply means  that when heathen peoples live  up to the teachings of their best  and purest men, God will honor their  faith and save them. Now, their best  and purest men have taught them to  expect a Heavenly Messenger to  come up out of the sea, and God  sent Jonah to honor this sincere  faith.

"This'same Jesus which is taken up  from you into heaven shall so come  in -like manner as ye have seen Him  go into heaven."   Yes, the critics will  have a hard time to prove that the  resurrected   Christ,   who   is   now   at  the right hand of God, exalted above  every name and power, and who is to  come again in glory    to    judge the  world, did not know the whole truth  regarding the Old Testament; yet in  Luke 24:27   (after  His  resurrection)  we   read   "And  beginning  at  Moses  and all the prophets  He expounded  unto them in all the  Scriptures the  things   concerning    Himself."     This  proves  that  He had  the  very  same  idea of the Old Testament after His  resurrection as before His death, so  wherever   He  has  declared   Himself  regarding the Old Testament we had  better accept Him as our highest authority.   Christ's own words in Matt.  26:24, 64 ought to make this fact very  clear to us.    (Matthew 26:24).   "The  Son of Man goeth as it is written of  Him;"   Then (in Matthew 26:64) He  says, "Hereafter we sail see the Son  of Man sitting on the right hand of  power  and coming in  the clouds  of  Heaven."    Let  any    Greek    scholar  successfully  prove   (if  he  can)   that  the expression "The Son of Man" (O  Uios  tou  anthropou)   in,  both   these  verses,   does   not  refer  to  the  very  same  identical person.    Then  if the  Christ who walked this earth is the  very    same     Christ     (without    any  change)   as   now   sits   at   the   right  hand of God, surely He ought to be  our supreme authority regarding the  Old Testament.

A large whale requires as  much air as eighty men. Its mouth  is large enough for four men to stand  upright in it. As it darts through  the water with wide open mouth .all  kinds of small fish go down into the  stomach,-but-a-large-body--like Jonah  would have to go into the air chamber, where he would suffer no great  inconvenience. The whale, however,  would hot be very comfortable until  it went ashore and coughed "him  out." So much then re. the probability of; this miracle from , one who  knows a thousand, fold-more regarding the matter than any-critics.  ; Now, when Hilprecht uncovered  Nineveh he found, what I consider to  be, the true reason why God saved  Jonah by means of a fish; In the palace of the king He found the history  of Berosus. This history tells what  the Ninevites believed concerning  their great god Daggan (half fish and  half man). It tells how ���������Daggan  came to earth and taught the Ninevites all they knew; how to build  their houses, till the soil and sow  their grain. He taught them, too, the  principles of mathematics; in fact  everything. At night He would sleep  in the sea, for He was amphibious.  Then, before He went away for good,  He told the people that ages after  He would send messengers from  heaven to teach them further, and  that th?se messengers would all  come out of the sea. Hilprecht also  found a tablet to one of these mes-?  sengers who -actually did come up  but of the sea, and ��������� his name is  "Ioannes," which he says can only be  interpreted in that language as  Jonah.  Now, God could have saved Jonah  in 10,000 different ways, but He knew  the people were looking for amessen-  ger from Daggan, to come out of  the sea, so He saved him in this peculiar but convenient method. God  would have witnesses near by to see  him coughed up. When he first entered Nineveh, no one seems to have  paid much attention to Him, but  soon these witnesses tell their story  $kOQMFiEM>'S CAFE  2517 MAIN STI$0T NEAB 3R0APWAY  KNOWN AS THE BEST ANP OLPEST ~  ESTABLISHED CAFB IN MT.

The Dominion Glazed, Cement  Pipe Company has won for itself a high place in the opinion of experienced  engineers, and a large place among costruction materials used in the most  important branch of city building, which is denominated the sewerage system.  This Company started business in Vancouver over three years ago.  At the start one pipe-making machine was in use; at the present time $150,-  000.00 is invested in the works, and employs more than forty men, and the  capacity has been more than doubled.  ������t 11| i 11������ ������11111i114111 MuH.  Each machine is capable of turning out over a mile of pipe in six work  days, and makes pipe from four to thirty inches in diameter.  The civic authorities of Vancouver have been using this pipe for three  years. The pipe is in good favor in New Westminster, South Vancouver,  and is also being used in Victoria. s *  This is a home industry that bids fair to grow to a large capacity as  the city grows in the future. '        V  Thirty miles of concrete sewer pipe has been made by this Company  and laid in the sewerage system of this city and is giving complete satisfaction, as concrete sewer pipe gets harder and better with age.  ?  ��������� ���������  IX-PBESIDENT TAFT'S SPLENDID  TRIBUTE TO GREAT BRITAIN'S WORK  P   Col. Taft said that his experience in the Philippines forced him to study the British Colonial  lystem and the marvellous accomplishments of  [he Imperial Government in spreading civiliza-  ion over the world and promoting the happiness  " 400,000,000 people.   But for British enterprise -  British courage, British sense of responsibility in  >verning other races, human civilization would  faVe been greatly retarded.  World's Debt to Britain  "When I think of what Britain has done in  adia for the happiness of those people; how she  >und those many millions torn.by intenfecine  Irife, disrupted with constant wars, unable, to  Tmttnue agriculture or the arts of peace, with in-  mor roads, tyranny, and oppression; and when  (think what the Government of Great Britain is  >w doing for these alien races, the debt the  world owes Britain ought to be acknowledged  in no grudging manner."  Col. Taft emphasised also the marvellous development of Egypt under Lord Cromer, Lord  Milner, and Lord Kitchener. "Today, he said,  the Imperial historian must look at the British  Empire from the standpoint of benevolent, useful, elevating government. It must be regarded  from the point of view of benefit to the human  race. No one can encircle the globe, no one live  in the Orient, no one go into the tropics, without  seeing the Standard of Britain floating over the  soil of her Empire and without having it brought  home to him what a factor in the progress of  mankind she has been.       v  Federated Unions  "But not only has your Imperial function  had to do with the government of other races  and with helping them on to peace and arts and  comforts of civilisation, but the enterprise of the  English, Scots and Irish has carried them into far  distant lands, there to establish settlements of  white subjects of the Empire, and in the last generation we have seen flower into federated unions  great governments���������in one case called ������ Dominion,, in another case a Commonwealth, and in a  third a Union���������with every reasonable prospect  that in this century their wealth and population  will approximate those of the Motherland."  No nation except Great Britain, he said, had  such self-governing Dominions of people tied to  her Empire with bonds of loyalty and affection  which seemed to grow as the actual control of  the Mother eountry diminished and lightened.  ?A#AU4 OAHAL  [New York, Feb.���������Some of the most  f-ominent Jews of America gathered  pre to celebrate the completion of a  iglish version of the Bible written  [cord   breaking   literary   work���������an  iglish version of the Bible written  Jews for Jews.

Mrs. Stevenson was  stricken late yesterday afternoon and  did not regain consciousness.  PITTSBURG, REDUCING W-  MORAL HOUSES  New York, Feb.���������Mrs. Robert  Louis Stevenson's maiden name was  Fanny /Van deGrif. She was born  in the United States. Her first husband was Samuel A. Osborne, from  whom she obtained a divorce in 1879.  Very little is known of the early years  of her life.  It was in 1876 that she met Stevenson while she was sojourning with  her son and daughter jn France. Her  domestic life Was not happy even at  this date, and she arid Stevenson seem  to have been drawn together from  the start.   ,. ���������  '   ���������  In 1878 she was obliged to return  to her home in California, and in  August of the following year, alarmed  at news of her health, Stevenson hurriedly crossed the Atlantic, traveling  as a steerage passenger, partly due  to lack of means and partly for the  experience. .  At San Francisco he was stricken  with a desperate illness, from the effects of which he never fuly recovered. The woman who was to be his  wife nursed him through the worst of  his illness, and in May they were  married and went to live in a deserted  mining town in the Sierra-s.  Subsequently they went to Scotland, where Stevenson a joined his  family.  After her husband's death in. Samoa  in 1894, Mrs. Stevenson withdrew  herself from the world to a considerable extent. Until recently��������� she  made her home in San Francisco. In  1908 she sold her home there and  went to Santa Barbara.

"The growth of the social evil, of  divorce, and of race suicide are  among its symptoms; it is at the back  of a startling increase in disease, insanity, graft and crime."  As a result of the investigation the  commission found that Pittsburg had  247 improper houses. They held 1,-  288 inmates.

Barely bad we Interrupted  our employment with exchange of  words. But now. the writing which I  bold provoked .exclamation.  . "Addison!" I cried, so sharply cut*,  Jng fbe silence that the girl started.  "Addison! Did you ever hear of blm?"  She gestured a negative. Not that I  remember, she qualified.  Why?"  "Because we must find him," I declared, a little excitedly, I imagine;  for the letter seemed wonderfully important  Instantly she was all alert". *<  "What is it?" she asked, springing  up and coming to my side. "What  have you found?"  "Look!" I commanded, the sheet of  paper In one upraised band, a finger  of my other hand pointing {to a passage. "Look! In 3903, your uncle Robert was in Peking; and yet he gave  me bis word tbat he had never visited  China."  Besting an arm on my shoulder and  bending forward she read (or herself:  "Just to think! We were In Peking  Jogeflier^ and neither of ns was aware  of It until too late! What ft foregathering we missed! Even five minutes'  chat would have been something; but  I no sooner saw you. than the crowd  on Legation street swallowed yon up."  "Have you read it alir  "Not to tbe end," I told hor, "lust  the  beginning   and   the   signature  nlte. Too indefinite. Suppose we  have blm in here and find but exactly. Possibly he knows Mr. Addl-  ;soh."  . When Louis came, however, he  iknew nothing. He had never heard of  ja Mr. Addison or of a Mr. Addison  :Something, in all the three years and  lelght months of bis service with Mr.  [Cameron. -So Evelyn thanked him  ���������once more in her own gracious way  [and we continued our work, directing  ,'our efforts especially now to unearth-  ling further Addison-slgned letters  ���������which might prove enlightening.  "Why should Uncle Robert tell yon  he had never been ln China?" Evelyn  asked me, looking up suddenly and  dropping to her lap the letter she was  |at that moment examining. "I can't  [understand that."  Nor I," I admitted.  "If I had asked  Shim, out of idle curiosity he would  (have- been Justified perhaps in   misleading me; but he must have known  that it was in his^lnterest I made the  Inquiry."  For Just a moment she sat in silence, her narrowed gaze on the glowing embers in the fireplace. Then she  turned to ine again. ,  "Do you think, Philip, it was because he had something to hide?" she  asked, seriously, ''Something he was  ashamed of and feared might become  known?"'.;.'  Instantly I sprang to my friendV  defense..-.  "No," I assured her, with emphasis.  "No, Evelyn. Whatever his motive  was, I am satisfied it had no dishonorable basis. If he-told me a deliberate  falsehood it waB not to spare himself.  Possibly���������yes, probably, it was to  shield others."  I. was perfectly sincere in this, but  even bad I believed otherwise I should  have been tempted to prevarication  could -I have foreseen my reward. Before I quite realized her purpose Bvelyn was out of her chair, had slipped  over behind me, and encircling my  neck with her arms, bad pressed her  lips softly to my cheek.  "Ob, bow glad I am to bear you say  that! You believe in bis bigness���������in  his nobility, Just as I do, don't yon,  Philip, dear?"  "I'm sure he could never have been  guilty of anything dishonorable," I de*  dared again, imprisoning her hands.  But tbe next moment, hearing steps  -again crossing the ball, I reluctantly  [released them.  ! For a third time Louis stood tn the  (doorway. Now he upheld a small red-  ;bound book, and bis face was beam-  ling.  j "Voila, mademoiselle!" ho exclaimed, delightedly. "Je viens de trou-  Ivant ce llvre." v  It was a hook of addresses, and the  valet, nervously turning toe, pages,  put bis finger upon the name of Ho-,  ratio Addison, M. D-, with the air of  one who bad discovered hurled treasure. I am inclined to think that wo  were ourselves almost as demonstratively elated as^he, for though wo.  [could cot be sure that this was Cameron's correspondent; the odds, certainly favored' that conclusion; and  unless the . physician bad died or  moved away since the entry was made,  we were now in possession of his address, which chancedx to be an apartment bouse on Madison avenue, that  my plea for information?  Dr. Addison the whole story would  certainly be Inexpedient. To hint even  at alarm concerning Cameron might  Involve the precipitation of that financial disaster he had feared and regarding which he had warned me. Indeed,  would not any .effort to obtain the  facts I desired be likely to arouse suspicion, no matter how delicately  made?  The more I pondered the situation,  sitting there thoughtfully while one  after another the patients who bad  'preceded me passed Into the physician's consultation room, the more beg-  ,garly, it seemed to me, became my  chances of success., And when, at  length, my turn came to enter* the  presence of my friend'B friend, I was  about persuaded that I should very  soon be making an Ignominious exit,  branded as an impertinently''meddling  busybody.  I have always contended that;it- was  Dr. Addison's .severely professional air  Which was responsible for my inspiration, for no thought of such-a course  occurredt tosme, until standing dumbly  hesitant before him, I became conscious that he was .making mental inventory of me with a view to a diagnosis.  .'.  The penetration of his gase impressed me at once./ His steel gray  ���������yes were .like a pair of converging  probes; and they were his dominant  feature. Aside from them his ' face  was commonplace.  "Doctor," I said, and the sound of  my voice was a relief to the strained  [tension of the moment, "I learned of  jyou through Mr. Cameron���������Mr. Bob-  !ert Cameron, a mutual friend."  I hoped to see his expression brighten at the name, but it did not.   If  Come," I added, "well read It from   I knew to be given over entirely to-  first to last, together."   And I turned  hack tbe page.  It was written from Cairo, and bore  date of December 7,1808.  "My dear Cameron,'* it began, "I  am wondering whether yon are back  tn New York again. However, you  will probably be there for Christmas  and therefore this letter will not long  await you. We have been making a  rather leisurely tour of tbe east. Arrived here two days ago and snail remain until some time' In January."  Tbe writer'then gave a general outline of bis travels. "Yon will prob-  ' ably be surprised to learn that once  yon and I passed each other as ships  In the night, save only tbat we did not  even speak each otber tn passing," be  went on. "It was my last day���������Indeed  my last hour���������in northern China.  Otherwise I should have made search  (tor yon.  Just to think!   We were In!  (Peking together, and neither of u������  jwas aware of It until too late.   What!  :a foregathering we missed I   Even five*  [minutes' chat would" have been some-i  'thing; but I no sooner saw you, than]  *the crowd  on Legation street swallowed you up.   Half an hour later I  jwas on tbe train for Tien-tain."  j   The rest of the letter was rather'  loonfuslngly personal In its references  ito,mutual friends and interests.    It  was signed: "Always with warm re-  enrd, Addison." !  ; "Do you suppose that is his first  name or bis last?" Evelyn asked.me  as we came to It"  j   "I refuse to suppose," I returned,  'emlling.   "It's an even chance. What  ila more to the point is, how long baa  Louis been your uncle's valet?"  II ;   "Several years."  ; J'Several Js injeiUjitoa. ��������� Too lndefl-  doctors' offices.  This time Bvelyn assured Louis that  he was not merely a "good boy" but  an incomparable assistant, and the  richness of the reward came ntgh to  totally wrecking bis composure, for,  as be started to back from the room.  I detected unmistakable tears gllsten-  Vlng on bis lashes.  "Louie," I checked him, with sadden inspiration, "apportes-nous le dl-;  rectoire telephonic, s/U vous plait"  And when the book was brought the  fact that Dr. Addison's address had'  not been changed was promptly es-:  tablished. I was for calling him up,  then and there, but Evelyn pointed to)  the. clock and advised patience. Xt|  was already after midnight  ���������Tomorrow," she said, in her wisej  fashion, "you shall call on blm, and;  learn, if possible, how Uncle Robert'  replied to that: letter. There is a difference, you know, Philip, between be-;  ing In a place and having some one  see you there. No one's eyes are in-  fanible."  f   there was any change whatever It was  |ln the reverse direction."After a,sec-  iondVdeliberation he asked:  . "Yon wish to consult me regarding  yourself?"  On a sudden impulse I answered,  "Yes," though I bad neither ache nor  ipain, and, so far as I could judge,  was perfectly normal.  "I see'," he replied. "Am I right  In .assuming that your trouble ls~ of  .a nervous character?"  Heaven knows that in spite of my  fancied'normality there had been sufficient reason In the past few weeks  for my' nerves to go - awry.' I confessed that I had been under considerable mental strain.  Thereupon, having bade me be seated, he began to ply me with questions  with a view to sympathetic revelation.  I fear, however, that I gave him meager material upon which to base a conclusion. I slept well, my appetite was  excellent. I^bad observed neither a  numbness nor a supersensitiveness in  my finger tips, nor a sensation of fulness at tbe base of the brain. I  could not recall any twitching, of my  muscles, nor any diminution 6r muscular power. At length, after a brief  pause, be Inquired:  "Will you be good enough to tell me,  Hr. Clyde, why you think you require  professional attention?"   _'  And my Inability to answer him, offhand, paradoxical as It may seem,  eventually supplied me with an an-  ewer at once truthful and convincing.  "Because," I explained gravely, "I  find tbat of late I am losing my power  of mental co-ordination."  The ardor with which he seised  upon this index of my supposed malady was amusing. Instantly be.grew  obviously and deeply interested- I  have since learned tbat wbat Is known  as confusions,! insanity, a rare condition, usually has its inception In this  wise, "without essential emotional disturbance," if I may quote an authority. At tbe time, I believe he was  auspicious of a developing paresis.  What be thought, however,_pr what  Ike did not, is aside from the story. I  know only that his manner changed  abruptly, hip object evidently being to  fain my full confidence. Whereupon,  Ithe bars of reserve lowered between  <us, I ventured to revert to our s������called  ("mutual friend-"   - ^  ��������� "This Isn't anything like berl-bert,  jls it, doctor?". I began. My ideas of  the disease I mentioned were of the  Easiest character. I knew, however,  jthat it was common in the Orient* and  itbttber I would lead him.    ; ,^  "Ob, no, Mr. Clyde," he answered,  jsuayely enough, now. "Berl-bert is  merely the eastern name for multiple  ineuritls. You haven't a neuritis or  'you would know it I saw a great deal  jof beri-beri In China and on the Malay  {peninsula." ���������  I "Do I remember to have heard Cam-  ieron say be contracted it In the east?"  |l asked, plunging for a connection.  "I don't recall that Cameron ever  ihad it," was bis response. And then  }hls;brow grew thoughtful.   "Are you  gerly. "Tell me! I have excuse for  asking. Has he ever admitted to you  that he was there?"  "Now I come to think of it," I returned, "he hasn't. But I had the information from some one, I am pretty  sure." ' '  With an effort, the physician commanded himself. When he spoke again,  he was comparatively composed.  "Mr. Clyde," he said apologetically,  "I am not given to discussing personal  matters with my patients, but the fact  that you and Cameron  are friends,  and,, the fact that   this   subject   has  come up, make it almost Imperative,  I suppose, that I should explain briefly the feeling I have Just exhibited.  Five years ago Rob Cameron and I  were about as near counterparts of  Damon and Pythias as ever existed.  While Cameron was in Europe, I had  an opportunity to go around the world  with a patient.   We dawdled a good  deal, and, you understand howj*uncer-  tain  correspondence is under those  circumstances.    I never   knew   just  where I should be at any given time.  Consequently,   a   number  of  letters  were missed by both of us.   I was still  thinking of Cameron as in England or  on the European continent, when lo  and behold, I saw him one morning,  hurrying along the principal street of  the inner city of Peking.    I   don't  know whether you have  ever  been  there or not, but if you have, you  know what that thoroughfare is.    It  was all bustle and activity that day,  and about as crowded as Broadway-at  the noon hour, but with much more  picturesque and contrasting currents  of individuals and Vehicles.    I was  in a Carriage, myself, and Cameron  was  afoot, walking In the opposite  direction.   As we passed each other,  he did not Beem to see me, though I  called to him loudly.   This, however,  I did not surprise me, for there was an  j ungodly: racket in progress.   Instantly,  I had the carriage turned about, but  before I could overtake him, he was  lost in the crowd.   I was leaving Peking that afternoon, and so had ho  chance to look him up.   I wrote him  afterwards and told him of the incident, and how I regretted - having to  go away without exchanging at least  a word with him.   To my amazement  he not only .denied having been   in  Peking, but In tbe Chinese empire at  all.   When we met ln London, the following spring,: and I recalled tbe matter, asking why he had refused to  admit wbat I knew to. be tbe truth,  be became idly, indignant; and that  was the beginning of the end.   If I  had conceded the possibility of mistake on my part, all might have been  well, I suppose; but there was no such  possibility.  I had known Cameron tor  twenty-odd years, and I could not have  made an error.   I had seen him distinctly, clearly, at midday tn the open.  It was he beyond all peradventure,  and from that time to this I have been  unable to conceive why be lied to me,  and why be chose to end our, friendship rather than admit wbat was indubitable fact."  His explanation finished, he reached  for a pen, and, as be dipped it in the  ink, be added:  "I trust, you will pardon me, Mr.  Clyde.   I have detained you."  "You have Interested me," I assured  him. "And tbat more than I can tell  you." Which was quite true; yet I  was even more perplexed than interested^ To the maze of circumstances  there was now added another baffling  feature.  Dr. Addison handed me the presorjp.  tion he bad written.  ��������� "After meals, and at bedtime," be  ���������directed, with a return-to his professional manner. "If you do not find  yourself much better at tbe end of  a week, come in again." __  _    _  On tbe sidewalk I tore the little  square of paper into bits wbich the  wind carried in a tiny Hurry across  Madison avenue.  As for my interview with "Pythias"' [ a quick lunch restaurant, with white  (Addison, we discussed It ln all its painted bulk window, beneath which',  jphases, without reaching anything a pair of cellar doors spread invitingly,  'like a definite conclusion.

Evelyn asked. /  "It Is possible, of course," I answered. "Yet Cameron's face and figure are not of a common type. Besides, I don't believe in doubles.

A little later she inquired whether  ithe detective engaged- to shadow Phfo  ietus Murphy bad furnished a report,  ;"Yes," I told her, "It came in my  morning's mall.

And, Philip, don't you think you had  better take some one with you? 1  {Suppose Mr. Ynp is to be trusted, but  1st the same time, yon must remember  jyou are going into the enemy's camp,  end you should be careful."  ; But I laughed at the notion of taking a body-guard  CHAPTER XIV.

But  altogether admirable though she was,  the eternal feminine was strong- with-  lin her. Therefore it was incumbent  ���������upon her to add: v  ' "It doesn't surprise me, Philip.  When you told me how you picked  that man up, I was confident that he  was floating out there In your path  'just for that very purpose." ^  ��������� I had no inclination to dispute the  Ipoint with her. That was the most  painful part of it.' I knew that she  was right���������that in putting Peter Johnson ashore, instead of in irons, I had  committed an error that might prove  irremediable. But why couldn't she  {see that I realized it, and was smarting under my own condemnation, and  so have spared me this added torture  pf hers?\ Why?-' Because she was her  mother's daughter. That Is the only  answer.  "I'm to meet him at nine o'clock," I  told her, "In a public restaurant Be?  sides, there'll be'a crowd of those  'Seeing New York' people down there  about that time, and Chinatown will  be on its best behavior. So never fear,  little girl. Do you want me to telephone you when I get uptown? You  know I'm going to stop tonight at my  rooms in the Loyalton."  "Of course I want you to telephone  me," she returned, emphatically.

BuTthe power of pre-  Ivlslon is given to few of us, and of  ithose few I am not one.  Assuredly I had no misgivings as,  after dining at the University club  that evening, I stepped into an electric hansom and gave tbe driver the  address of tbe Doyers street restaurant Whatever It may have-been in  the past, I believed the Chinatown of  the present to be, outwardly at least, a  reasonably law-abiding section of the  borough of Manhattan. And was not  l that night -the guest of one of its  most honored citisens? What, therefore, had I to fear?  ; On the contrary, as we turned from  Itha Bowery Into-that little semiclrcu-  Har thoroughfare which Is perhaps tbe  most characteristic-of Chinatown's  three principal streets, I. was pleas*  ���������antly interested. This was quite a  different place from that which I had  visited the afternoon before. Then, a  fort of brooding quiet reigned over  what was so ordinary as to be scarcely distinctive; for that part of Mott  ���������treat on which the Yup Sing establishment Is located, I nave since learned. Is merely one of the gates of tbe  real Chinatown, of which Doyers  street is the heart and center���������and  (which awakens only after nightfall.  Now tbe place was alive and alight  Narrow roadway and still .narrower  istdewalks were thronged with a corn*  hinstlon of denizens and sightseers.  Shop fronts and upper windows glowed with varying degrees of brightness.  From the Chinese theater on the left  came a bedlam of inharmonious  Sounds: the brazen crash of cymbals,  Ithe squeaking of raucous stringed Instruments, the resounding clangor of a  gong- Voices high-pitched and voices  guttural, mingled:,with hoarse and  ptrident laughter, echoed from wall to  [wall of tbe street's encroaching  squalid buildings.  ; Before the least unpretentious of all  these structures, my hansom stopped,  land as I stepped to the curb I got a  {glimpse of Its banner and lantern!

Tracks for handling the cargoes at the wharf have been installed  and the' sheds and other facilities  are now practically ready for service.  Half of the dock is being operated  on lease by the, Balfour, Guthrie  Company, but no definite announcement regarding trie company's intentions with regard to the shipping tbat  will use* the other portion <has yet  been made. President Carl Grey and  other executive officials have from  time to time intimated that negotiations for the use of the Great Northern Railway's dock system have been  proceeding and have entered denials  to reports that the railway company  intended to enter in competition  with' steamship lines now operating  lines out of this port.  It is understood that the dock will  be used by a number of steamship  companies which at present do not  make Vancouver a port of call. The  fact that the dockWs one of the most  expensive and substantial of its kind  on the Pacific coast is accepted as an  indication that the Great Northern  railway is anticipating a big shipping  business coincident with the growth  and development of the province.  ���������   ���������   ���������  P. G. E. PROGRESS  According to a statement recently  issued by-the Grand Trunk Pacific  railway 10,000 box cars, 1227 passenger sleeping, dining and other cars,  and 156 locomotives of different types  were adHed to the rolling stock of the  G. T. P. and its parent company, the  Grand Trunk railway system during  the year 1913.  The equipment delivered during  the past year included 41 superheater  Pacific.type of engines; 100 c ..her  large locomotives and fifteen switching engines; 10 dining cars, 15 sleeping cars, 11 parlor cars, 67, first-class  coaches. 64 mail, baggage and express  cars, 500 flat cars, 500 stock cars and  a large number of combination cars.  The box cars make the largest addition numerically to the rolling  stock of the Grand Trnnk, a notable  tendency being shown towards car's  with a ��������� capacity of 80,000 pounds.  While' the passenger cars are considerably less in number a much larger  expenditure is involved in their construction. It is mentioned in this  connection that the prices range from  $10,000 for a first-class car' to ,$25,-  000, for a sleeper equipped for service.  ���������   ���������   ���������  , V      C. N. R. PROGRESS  WILL BE BEST DOCK ON  NORTH PACIFIC COAST  The contractors  Great  for the Pacific  Eastern railway ,-have completed 168.5 miles of main line track  between Newport and Clinton. From  Newport to . the . Cheakamus, 13.5  miles of track have been laid.  ������   ���������   ���������  PUSHING STEEL WEST  In the attempt to complete the  Grand Trunk Pacific by.May 10, according to official.1 announcements  the contractors who have' laid the  .rails into Prince George are now  pushing the steel west. The line is  being shoved ahead' on the western  section as well. The weather is favorable to the making of rapid progress.  The new C. P. R. dock at present  under construction will be the most  up-to-date on the Northern Pacific  coast- At the present time work on  the same is progressing1 quite favorably and it is expected th^t it will be  ready for occupation some time early  in the fall '     ���������  e  This dock will be used exclusively  for the C' P. R. coastwise passenger  steamers on runs to Victoria, Seattle,  and Nanaimo., A feature of the new  dock sheds is the introduction of all  steel girders and spans^over the portion that will be two stories in height.  ���������The second storey will be devptccL^p  offices for the company's 'officials,  also the general waiting room, as well  as the new home 'of the Canadian  customs officials.  ������  Floating pontoon approaches be  used entirely. These will do'away  with the necessity of the traveling  public having to reach the steamers  by the dock level at all, as they cross  over the viaduct from the new depot  they will instead approach by this  means. ,Patent slips will also be used  and nothing is being left undone in  the plans to provide for the' most  modern equipment.  IN SIX HUNDRED FEET  The Canadian Northern Pacific  construction work on the North  Thompson is well advanced. Steel is  now laid to Mile-130 north of Kamloops. The weather |s very good and  small slides which prevented as much  speed being made as*in'the summer  are now a thing of1 the past.  '   *-  *  STEEL   NEARLY    COMPLETED  The steel work on the new C. P. R.  station is nearly completed. Practi^1  cally the entire west end of ,the building is now in place. The eastern end  and the center was completed' some  time- ago. Most of the brick and  stonework was done on that part of  the station before the New Year.  . Over India's 35,000 miles of railway, 350,000,000 passengers traveled  last year. Twelve million', telegrams  were sent ovea the 72,000 miles of wire  and 58,000 miles^'of Irrigating canals  took water.' to .48,000,000^ acres of  otherwise waste land. -  The pioneer tunnel, which is being  bored at Rogers' pass, preparatory to  drilling the main* shaft, is now 600  feet in from the eastern end. Much  of the approach work on the western  end of the main tunnel is completed.  The pioneer tunnel will be used for  ventilation and other purposes by the  C. P. R., for whom the whole.scheme  is being worked out.' It will first be  used to give the contractors access to  the main tunnel at several points.  The London Times recently stated  that leading British engineers recognise the Pacific Coast as the best new  field for their enterprise and calculated that ������350,000,000"' is being expended in railway lines to the coast,  terminal and harbor facilities, the  greater part of which will be expended on the coist "of British Columbia.   <  A BKf COLONY LOCATED NEAR  Tampa.

RHODESIA  The British South Africa" Company  has issued a statement of its proposals for the encouragement of land  settlement and immigration in Rhodesia. The area of territory jis approximately 95,000,000 acres; of this  25,000,000 acres is absorbed by. native  reserves, leaving 70,000,000 acres to  be considered. Assuming that only  jand 3,500 feet above sea level is  adapted to European occupation,  there is in the hands of the company,  aside, from native reserves and privately owned land, about' 23,000,000  acres suitable for occupation. The  company proposes to sell first farms  of manageable dimensions, especially  within twenty-five miles of railroads.  The Board of the company would, if  necessary, itself buy this land and  resell to settlers on easy terms as to  time, and wouJ4 endeavor to secure  expert service r'from the agricultural  department* in the way of advice, construction, etc' The company seems  eager to do everything possible to  attract the right sort of citizens; and  South Africa is developing as rapidly  as did our own Western country fifty  years ago.
