NOTES OF THE WEST  {Contributed by W. D.)  Tho Premier's address before the Canadian Club  ii the "Responsibilities of Citizenship" was,a,  fell timed exhortation given in Hou. Richard Mc-  Iride's best vein���������that it was appreciated by the  list audience to the full was evident from the  Inging cheers sent around the banquet tables.  lie address made considerable impression, and  [is been discussed around town and in the Press  favorable terms.

It is to be hoped  it the Civic authorities will look well to the  fety of the public in the manner of exits and fire  itrol.   I have long thought that it would bo  lible for modern architects to design such a  [use with less appliances, and more application  j natural laws, governing the principles of com-  [ation, air pressures and fire control,  In aueb a  tiding it would be necessary to have a 'special  (���������opening roof, so that in case of a fire oji $he  ge, where amid inflammable scenery such gen-  fly  originate,  the increase  of temperature  ould of itself control the fire, and direct its ���������  furse by natural laws, which non-sudden opening  ' doors or scene docks would not be Able to'over-  ime.

That  (uch a building will one day come to be erected,  jnce the full principles of modem theatre design-  lg are mastered, is as certain as possible.  What an appalling disaster was the wreck of  Ihe Titanic! Nothing like it has ever been kuo^n  In naval history and let us hope that nothing like  it ever will be again.   Thesq huge leviathans are  |o sonio minds more liable to mishap than theii  aorc moderate sized sister ships.  The general im-  Jpression is that some carelessness of look-out or  [navigation is answerable for the sad mishap, and  [strong things are being said about the Titanic not  ���������jurying enough life boats to accommodate the  whole of her passengers and crew.   Iu these days  ��������� *f collapsible everything, it would have been perfectly easy to have tarried hundreds, aye, thousands,  if needful,  of stout canvass  boats that  would hold six or seven people, had this idea been  |;u practice, the ill fated ship could have launched  ��������� he whole of her 2200 souls safely upon the waste  |>f waters, to be picked up in a couple of hours by  it he Carpenthapia.

Mr. Joseph Martin, M.P., is surely a high class  comedian. It would be entertaining and instructive to take a trip through the entire public life  of the Hon. Fighting Joe. Perhaps two of the  queerest things in his public lif<* nave-eome his  way in Old London Town.  We shall look at the second first, and the first  seeond. He has been indulging in reading heroic  poetry of late, and, in his new venture has met  some spirited writings of the famous Kipling.  -And herein lies the chance on which to^make a  comment or two.  It seems that Comedian Joseph has decided to  run Kipling to earth, or to prison���������the prison that  stared Joseph in the face a few weeks ago when  ho saved himself by a proper apology. He does  not like Kipling because this grand, patriotic  British poet is too loyal fof the Canadian M. P.  in London. Or perhaps Joseph has not been able  to understand the meaning of Kipling's heroics.  There is good history for such an assertion. How  can he understand a patriotic .poem when he does  not understand the meaning of patriotism or loyalty? Worse yet, and here is the pith of my comment. How can the honorable Joseph understand  Kipling when he cannot understand tht meaning  of his own language? This is a fair question, as  I shall show.  / A little while ago our Canadian Comedian in  London-made aaspeech. Shortly afterwards he  found himself facing a charge of libel, criminal  or otherwise. When he saw himself staring into  the deep, dark recesses of Old Bailey, orsome  other of King George's free -lodging houses, he  was glad tp study the real meaning of hit speoeh.  His own lawyer told, him it was ^11 up with his  liberty, or with a goodly bunch of his money,  unless he studied the, English language from the  true English standpoint.  pat-on-the-back, with prayers of (Sod-speed you  in the future with a greater success.

A WORD TO CANADIAN TOURISTS.  Many Canadians go annually to other lands N  on pleasure trips. Europe and the British Isles  are the tfhief places of resorts. I would like to  say a few words in relation to our own splendid  naturil advantages. No land'on earth can furnish s  superior attractions to the heealth or pleasure  seeker. Canada has the lakes, rivers, hills, mountains, woodlands, prairies and northlands that will  compare1 favorably with the best that can b. produced on any other continent.  Many Who run over to Europe spend money by  hundreds of dollars, even though the spending of  tens of dollars in Canada would furnish, so far  as nature is concerned, all that the rest of the  world can lay claim'to.  And our great railway lines and steamships are  to be had in abundance1 in such places as to give  ready access to the best spots in the Dominion.  Then across the' Pacific ocean, over in Japan, is  to be had one of the loveliest countries on earth.  Everything in nature, and in art, as well as in  civilization that would take a long time to intelligently study can be found in that wonderful  country.  It is but a cheap trip, and one most easily taken.  The Canadian Pacific steamships sail from, Vancouver- and furnish safety and comfort tb the  most fastidious. Japan, China, Hong Kong and- -  Manil* asn he visited for the sum of $300.00 for,  the; rounft trip, extending over four months.  I t������nt- wandering if,* in my intended trip over  The Honorable Joseph.immediately went to\  to the above Asiatic lands, there could not be a'  school, and soon was ready with an apology  He, through his skilled lawyer, made answer  and said, in effect: "Yes, I did use these words,  but at the time of their use I did not understand  them to carry Jthe signification tbat the prosecuting attorney and my most able counsel" say they  carry. I am sorry I used words with such significance, and most solemnly apologize to the  honorable:; gentleman whom I hurled them at  ' a la Canadienne.' I am a stranger in Old London,  and have not quite mastered the true significance  of my own words when expressed in the language  of this great city. However, in view of the sound  and sensible interpretation of my speech as indicated to me both by my own lawyer and the prosecuting attorney, aa well as in full view of Old  Railey, I herewith make ample apology, and further promise to recast the use of the English,  which has been so common to me out in the Western wilds j of Canada." i ���������'  thus, then, we have Comic Joseph, not able to  properiy interpret his own English without the  aid of two of the most skilled lawyers of England,  and assisted by a glimpse at the interior recesses  of OldPiiley.  No wonder he has failed to catch the meaning,  the true intent of Kipling's heroic verses. Perhaps he^would send the patriotic poet into durance  Vila which so nearly gripped himself whilst studying the true significance of ,the English language.  Ferhaps he does not like Kipling because he is so  patriotic and reverential. The. Honorable Political Comic has yet to catch the interpretation of  these two words, since he has no internal sentiment answering to them. Patriotism, loyalty, reverence, good taste, and similar sentiments and  qualifications are yet to be taught to Joseph, or  hammered into him by Kipling heroics.  He must, in any case, be a comic politician, since  he does not understand the meaning of his own  words, much" loss those of Kipling. And yet he  has held high positions, is one of Canada's bright,  scintillating stars, and a successful lawyer.

THE BOARD OF WORKS.  . Many keep complaining about the'slowness .of  the Council movements in relation to public improvements. Some people would grumble if they  were going to be hanged. It is hard to-satisfy  all.   In fact, it has never, been done yet.  As to the engineering department, representing  the actual plans and will of the Board of Works,  it is but just to say that there never has been a  time in the history of Vancouver when so many  vast and small improvements have been so vigorously pushed forward as at present. This is no  reflection, on our past capable engineers, but is  intended to give just praise to the men in charge  of this department of the City's public affairs.  Tn every part of Vancouver there is manifest  both plan, vigor and positive work of a truly  herculean character.  In C-randview, where I am .most familiar with  what is under Way, one is forced to admit splendid progress. Thus, then I claim there is due to  our aldermen, the Board of Works and the engineering department much praise. Herewith,  on behalf of myself aud a multitude of other good,  sensible citizens, is extended the handshake, or  "The capitalists and the workers are at war over  the product of. the labor of the workers. The  workers desire to.free themselves from capitalist  robbery. Socialism is the method by which this  is done! But there is no personal hatred in Socialism. We do not want to kill any capitalist,  nor to take the fortune of any particular capitalist  away from him. We want to conquer the capitalist class on the political field, in order to stop the  exploitation now going on,"  Apart from all questions of the merits of the  question, that is, of Socialism versus Capitalist,  these are sane words. With such sentiments for  guidance, the Socialist must win respect as he  wages Avar oh the present economic system. One  of the curses attached to Socialism is the unreasoning and unjust element, too largeljr in control,  which, with a vengeful spirit, breaks and tramples  Upon, every wise and just principle of action lying at the base of true Socialism.  Let all men who would improve present conditions carry sentiments of kindness and big-  hearted manliness; and more success will come to  their endeavors. The strikes accompanied with  force, violence, and the threatened destruction of  life and property are a failure and must be put  down by the strong arm of the people as expressed  , in law and enforced by the police and, if necessary, by the militia.  Let such scoundrels as St. John come to Canada and insult our people, and law, and receive  with lightning speed the treatment that wisdom  and the highest justice and mercy demand, if so,  he will be found in a Canadian jail, learning to  break stones. Later on, if he get not out, or do  not learn wisdom and use good taste, then apply  the lash to his treason-teaching person. Lay on  the welts good aud hard. Of course he is not a  Socialist. He is only a coarse Yankee I. W. W.  prating anarchy.  I have learned that success is to be measured  not so much by the position that one has reached  iu life as by the obstacles which he has overcome  while trying to succeed.���������Booker T.

Sir: In the News-Advertiser of December 30th,,  1911, Mr. C. E. Cartwright expresses dissent front  tho views advanced by me regarding the effect  upon the velocity of the tidal current at the First  Narrows of the projected enlargement of the  waterway there, and of the suggested substitution  of a solid embankment for a steel bridge at tha  Second Narrows. May I trespass upon your valuable space to explain somewhat more fully the  grounds upon which my conclusions, have been  based. /'  ���������t ���������  I can, J think, best do so by giving in fall tha  deduction of the formula by wjhich I. have ventured to express the relations, as I conceive them  to he, between the waterway and velocity' of current at the Narrows, and the receptive capacity  ot\the Inlet. I must first define the symbols which  I have used, as follows: Let;  A mean sectional, area of waterway at Narrows, i.e., mean''of areas of waterway at  Low Water and at High Water in square  V mean velocity of current inwards, during^  any one tide, in feet per second.  Q mean quantity passing inwards in one second, in cubic feet.  T Time elapsing between slack water low and1  slack water -high, of any one tide, in tidal  periods (of, say, 22,000, seconds).  C Capacity of Inlet between planes of Low  and High Water, of any one tide (to which  V, Q and T relate) in accordance with established tidal regimen* in units of capacity  of Inlet. ~ *  Then AV equals Q in one second. .      '   'i  AV x T equals Q x T in one tide. ���������      <  AV x T equals C in one fide.  AV x I equals C in one tide.  AV equals C in one tide.     ,  Q. E. D.  and it will be observed "that the element ot  has not been overlooked. ,.'-/, '  , Now the formula AV equals C, being proved, I "/���������  submit that my conclusions based upon It stand  confirmed, v\z, that ths velocity-ot current flowing through the Narrows will vary inversely, as  the sectional area of the waterway, and I am inclined to think that this formula will hold good  for variations of area far beyond the limits within  which Mr. Cartwright admits its truth.  Referring again to the equation which I have  formulated, AV equals C, it is plain that if A  remain cftnstaW'T^W vary "dlWIy*a*"C; ucr*^  that if the capacity of the Inlet (I mean Burrard  Inlet) were reduced to C divided by 4 by an embankment at the Second Narrows; or to C divided  by 20 by a landslide, or otherwise, filling up  from tho North shore to Brockton Point, the velocity of inflow at the Narrows would be reduced to  V divided by 4 in the first case, and to V divided  by 20 in the second.  From this conclusion there is no escape to which  I can clearly see the way in the light of: the facts  and arguments which Mr. Cartwright advances.  Mr. Cartwright says that my assumption that  "the capacity of the Inlet to receive tide water  between the planes of low and high water is a  fixed and constant quantity" is not correct; because, as he says, high tides are lower at Port  Moody and Indian River than at the Narrows. I  submit that the assumption is correct, because the  planes of high and low water for any tide, spring  or neap, whether these planes be or be not inclined  to the horizontal or to each other, are in accordance with the tidal regimen of the Inlet established from eternity past; and are always the same for  the same tidal range, and the contained volume  therefrom constant,  Were the sectional area of the  Narrows increased (and the current with it, as I understand  Mr. Cartwright to contend), the result I think,  would be the establishment of a modified tidal '"'  region, but with "C" still constant for the new  condition.  Mr. Cartwright's concluding illustration, designed, as I understand it, to prove that the construction of a solid embankment at the Second  Narrows would not reduce the velocity of the inflowing current at the First Narrows, appears to  me inapt. His illustration of the filling of the  Inlet through the Narrows by a comparison with  the filling of a tank with water from a flume I  do not thing represents at all correctly the condi-  ��������� mM  , wi-y%  ��������� HiMh  \        ^Ji-������'.^������������.^',  - - " 0M%  '-Mm  x&!$&  iryim  Xf'ps&ii  Love���������It is the rule for fulhMlinjr all rules,  the New Commandment for keeping all the Old  Commandments.

To more correctly, as I think, represent these  conditions let us imagine a tank say ten feet,  square and ten feet deep, having a box flume one  foot wide entering its side, the top and bottom  of the flume flush with the top aud bottom of  the tank. Suppose this tank and flume to be so  placed that the water of low tide just covers the  bottom of flume and tank; now suppose the tide  to rise ten feet in say ten minutes. Suppose the  tank filled and slack tide reached. Then the  mean sectional area of the stream that filled it.  will have been 5 square feet: the volume delivered  into the tank will have been 1000 cubic feet; the  tidal period, by hypothesis, has beeu 600 seconds  the mean velocity of flow mast have been 0M&  feet per second. Introducing these values into  the formula AV equals C, wa have 5 x 0.333 equals  1.666. which if multiplied by the 600 seconds of  the tidal period gives 1000 cubic feet, conforming  to hypothesis.  Now suppose- the flume to be 2 feet wide, other  conditions as before, then A equals 10, C equals  (Continued     ''. . ^age 4) BnM.'Km.KKMttU'Mi  TTO?

Central Canada is Constantly within  measurable distance of a coal famine;  nor are the conditions which may precipitate such a famine in any considerable degree within the country's control. This is due to the fact that all  Eastern and Central Canada is dependent on the Pennsylvania fields for  their supplies of anthracite coal. In  view of the threatened strike of the  Pennsylvania miners, this situation is  of unusually grave importance to Canadians. It Is only when such strike*  occur that* the public actually realizes  how dependent it is upon supplies of  United States coal. Again, very few  seem to realize the fact that the supplies of United States coal, both, anthracite and bituminous, may be en*  tirely denied ub at any time. Mr.  peprge QUs Smith, of the U������ fl������'Geological Survey, says: "Let us keep  our coal at home, and with It manufacture whatever the world needs."  Should this happen, can we say tbat  we are prepared to get along without It?  Depehdeneft en United States for  Anthracite.  According to a recent estimate, anthracite clal in tbe United States will  be exhausted ia leu than two hundred  years. Leas before that time the cost  will increase and the United Statea  Oovernment will: see' to it that the  coal is not exported, but kept ait home  for Ita own needs. Let us see to what  extent United 8tates coal is sold in  Canada.

Wltb regard to bituminous coal, Ontario, west of Cornwall, is supplied  entirely from tbe United Statea. Owing to the low freight rate on United  Statea coaL Nova Scotia cannot compete with United States coal west of  Cornwall. Tbe- bituminous coal consumed In Manitoba is almost entirely  from the United States, although coal  mined in, tbe Crowe Nest and Lethbridge district* finds a ready market  in Western Manitoba. \  From tbe above, it can be seen tbat  one of the/most important questions  we' have in Canada, at least in the.  Province of Ontario and the prairie  provinces, is the question of fuel. Tbe  fuel for the, prairie provinces will necessarily be supplied in the form of  coal and briquettes from mines in British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. But thl* does not apply to. the  Province of Ontario, and for economic  reasons stated before. Nova Scotia coal  cannot find a market In Ontario.  ii *** *** j********************  ii TORONTO  ������ FURNITURE  STORE  J i 3334 Main St.  ��������� ��������� Our stock of Furniture  ;��������� is Large, Modern and  '{- adapted to the tastes of  '\ Buyers.  ;: Dressers, Buffets, Tables %  % Chairs,  Couches,   Mat-  $ tresses, Bedsteads, etc.  Peat ss a Substitute*  Tbe other sources of beat, light and  power are peat, wood and hydro-electric power. Of these, peat and hydroelectric power only can be considered  as substitutes tor coal. With regard  to peat, the Mines Branch of the Department of Miner has demonstrated  the fact that peat can be successfully  and economically used for fuel and  power purposes. Estimating the cost  per ton of peat at the bog, $2.00, and  the coBt of soft coal $4.00 per ton, in  car lots f.o.b., the fuel cost per brake  horsepower year (3,000 hours) would  be as follows: .   .  Peat producer gas plant $ 7.50  Coal producer gas plant    9.00  Steam plant  36.00  Mr. B. F. Haanel of tbe Mines  Branch, in commenting on the foregoing, states that when peat is manufactured on a large scale with machines provided with mechanical excavators and other labor-saving devices,  the cost per ton of peat at the bog  will be considerably less than $2.00.  While power generated from peat  may be successfully used in certain  localities in different parts of the country, owing to the low cost of hydroelectric power and the abundance of  water power, the chief substitute for  coal which will make Ontario almost  entirely independent of United States  coal, will be hydro-electric energy.  The Hydro-Electric Power Commission has done much to further the  use of hydro-electric power by distributing this power to different centres, and vigilance must be exercised  to see that the sources of this energy  are not disposed of in such a manner  as to deprive the people of power at  reasonable rates.

Deut. 32: 8���������"When the Most High  divided to the nations their inheritance, when He separated the sons of  Adam, He set the bounds of the people, according to the number of the  children of Israel."   .  "For the Lord's portion is His pec  pie: Jacob is the lot of His inheritance." .  To those who believe tbat the Bible  tells tbe truth and that what God has  promises He makes good, I would address this question:  If the Children of Israel, all excepting the Jews, are blotted out, or are  merged and lost among the nations  of the earth, as Is generally taught,  then wherein has God made good, or  how cab He make good His promises  as set out In the above verse*? The  land was given to Abraham and bis  seed for an ''everlasting possession."  And this promise, with many others  similar, because Abraham obeyed the  voice of God. Tbe promise was necessarily an unconditional and an un-  raodiflable promise. Has God failed?  Or will Israel yet "possess bis possessions," a* tbe prophets declare,  even when the ten-trlbed bouse ot Israel was In exile?  if Israel is to come into the possession of all the lands from the "River of Egypt to the River Euphrates,"  as was promised, and which Israel has  not yet taken possession of, then IS-  RAELvMUST BE A NATION SOMEWHERE ON EARTH, and MUST BE  PREPARING TO COME INTO ACTUAL    POSSESSION,   or   GOD   HAS  FAILED. ;     v  If the Almighty fall In His promises, then He is not reliable. If He Is  yet to make good, where Is Israel?  The Jews are only the twelfth part of  Israel, and besides the prophetic utterances were particularly turned to  the HOUSE OF ISRAEL, as in contrast with the HOUSE OF JUDAH.  Let the ministers of the Scriptures  tell from their pulpits how" God has  failed, or how God is yet to make good  His word. He must keep hard and  fast to the "everlasting covenant."  Later on, I shall ask our ministerial  friends who delight in a spiritual Interpretation for material promises,  several other pertinent questions.  Thousands of thoughtful readers are  tired of the superficial and contradictory interpretations of the Scriptures so common today.   __   FASHION AND DRE9S.

The-word 'fashions' is the name  of a contagious old disease among  horses, Shakespeare speaks of a  steed which was "infected with the  fashions." The contagion is common  yet, but not among horses.  ' Fashions have ever been ja. subject  of comment. In the olden times they  were just as extravagant as they are  now. Isaiah puts in the strongest kind  of a protest against "the changeable  suits of apparel" and other stylish fixings of "the daughters Of Zlon." -Isa.  3: 16-26.) Among the early Romans,  and also, in England, laws were enacted to restrain excess in wearing apparel. ��������� ."������������������;.<.'���������������������������' '.-"���������  Yet Queen Elizabeth possessed the  dresses of all countries, and left 3,000  suits In her wardrobe. Elisabeth of  Spain never wore a gown the second  time. Almost any stylish woman had  a millinery bill "as long as herself."  One lady of quality bad a dressmaker's  bill for one year of "six thousand  pounds." The satirists of those days  vied with each other in trying to make:  fashion* appear ridiculous. .,  As Indicating the periods of popular erases for new varieties of dress  goods; note the following dates:  Alpaca, made from the wool of the  llama, was not known ln England until i������3������: vv ������������������'���������".; xy:y$:."'--.   ���������;  Cashmere, from the wool. of the  Thibit goat, was ma4e Into ehawls for  English ladies in 1666.       < ���������'���������}"  Calico entered England in 1631, from  Calicut, East India.;In 1700 calico  suits were prohibited by Euglllsh law.  Cambric, first manufactured at Cam-  bray, France, was introduced Into England ln 1580.  Cotton cloth was not allowed to be  sold, in England in 1721. The word  "cotton" is from the Arabic kotun.  No cotton mill was operated in America until 1789, at Beverley^ Mass,  .Cause was first made a Gasa, pales-  tine, hence the name. The European  manufacture of gauze began at Paisley, Scotland, In 1759.        .;^'lv ^?  Gingham was first made in India.

Silk dreflses  were first worn In 1455. 8!lk culture  began in Louisiana in 1718, and in  Georgia in 1732. ~  Satin is a Chinese article of similar  history with silk.  Velvet was first made In the twelfth  century ln Italy. It soon passed Into  France, where It was Improved, and  thence Into England In 1685.  Worsted goods, Including merlnoes,  bombazines, buntings, damasks, poplins, cashmeres, and the like, were  first made in Worsted, England, hence  tbe general name.  The muff was introduced before the  seventh century, and it varied in shape  and material quite the same as now.  Muffs -of leopard skin were worn in  1702.   ' ���������'.'      ;y   '..   ;���������'/  Shawls came from the Orient. They  were first known in Europe in 1801,  when Napoleon returned from his  Egyptian campaign, bringing with him  a shawl for Josephine. This set tbe  fashion. ������������������'  To Josephine also we are indebted  for first using the handkerchief. Queen  Elisabeth and her court had handker  chiefs, but they did not use them  much, while the French empress, having "very bad teeth," made constant  Use ofjdalnty pieces of linen and lace  in .order to conceal her great misfortune. ���������  Embroidery was in a state 0/ full development 3,500 year* ago. The em'  broiderer wrought his fabrics "in blue,  purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen.'  (Ex. 34:35.)  Two laborers in Council Bluffs were  preparing to dig a hole jta the street,  and a passer-by stopped to watch  them mark it on the asphalt. As  they worked, one laborer said:  "Did yez work yisterdayV Tim?"  '"Av course not," replied the other.  "Yisterday wor Lincoln's birthday."  The one who had spoken first finished marking on the asphalt, -and  then said:  "Tim, what makes them./celebratec  the birthday Of Lincoln?"

At the International Apple Shippers'  .convention in Detroit, Mich., the Canadian apple men scored rather a notable victory, when their exhibit carried off the president's cup for the  most comprehensive display of apples.  There was keen competition from the  numerous apple-growing j districts of  the United States, but the Canadian  fruit won a very decided victory.

Noble King  farm' ^n McLean county, near Champaign county. When wheat threshing  concluded even the expectations of the  state experts were exceeded. By the  use of phosphorous fertilizer the yield  was more than doubled. The average  yield on all plots which were not treat-  er with phosphorous was twenty-four  bushels an acre. The average yield  on the fertilized plots was fifty-eight  and one-half bushels an acre, an average gafn of thirty-four and cWhalf  bushels an acre. This is the climax of  the results that have been secured on  the experiment plot year after year,  and more than bears out the propaganda of Dr. C. G. Hopkins, tbe university soil expert, who holds that crops  may be doubled with intelligent soil  treatment, ft is Dr. Hopkins who is  telling Illinois farmers that they cannot continue to take everything out  of the soil wifeout/putting something  hack.,,./ When the complete returns  from the experiment field are published the advocates of soil fertility in Illinois expect to have another powerful  weapon forged for them in their campaign of education. The farmers of  Illinois will be told that on the ordi-  'nary land of the Illinois corn belt in  Iten years the increase due to soil  'treatment'.has amounted to 181.47 an  acre, with a net profit of more than  200 per cent, while the land is made  richer year by year. The total cost  for phosphorus fertilizer for those  years was $25.  Bridge  City Fire Alarms  8���������Granville and bmcb.  4���������C P. R.

Secretary of War Not to Allow Chicago to Divert  10,000 Second Feet from Great Lakes���������65,000,-  000 Tons of Shipping Affected���������Power Development at Niagara Would Be Decreased���������  Chicago Should Purify Her Sewerage and Use  Less Water.  A strong protest was registered by the Commission of Conservation before the United States  Secretary of War at Washington on March 27th,  against allowing the Sanitary District of Chicago  to divert additional water from Lake Michigan.  Hon. Clifford Sifton, Chairman, and James White,  Secretary, presented the case for the Commission.  Chicago now has permission to divert 4167 cubic  feet per second from the Great Lakes system for  sanitary purposes and wishes to increase this  amount to 10,000 cubic feet per second. Such a  diversion would seriously affect the levels of the  Great Lakes and Of the St. Lawrence canals. This  would decrease the amount of power generated  at Niagara and on the St. Lawrence, and would  affect most adversely the shipping of the Great  Lakes, which annually carries freight valued at  oyer $650,000,000. In view of these facts, and  also because the increased diversion is unnecessary for sanitary purposes and, is clearly in violation of the Boundary Waters Treaty of 1909,  the Commission of Conservation placed itself on  record as being strongly opposed to the granting  of the application.  Effect on Lake Levels.  Although Chicago has permission to divert only  4167 cubic feet per second, she has taken it upon  herself to use 10,000 cubic feet per second. When  the waters of the Great Lakes are at an average  level, diversions of 7000, 10,000 and 14,000 cubic  feet* per second would lower the waters of the  various lakes (in inches) as shown in the following table: !  Lowering of Lake Levels by Diversion at -  Chicago.  7000 c.f.s 10,000 c.f.s 14,000 c.f.s.  that the present application was only the beginning of the demands for permission to divert  more  aiid  more  water. \    r ,/  . The Commission of Conservation argued that  this diversion, lor the purposes of water power  development, of waters, belonging ��������� essentially to  international boundary waters, could not, on the  ground of international law, be justly sanctioned.  Concluding, the protest says:''''The Executive  of the Commission of Conservation expresses the  opinion that the application is without even the  semblance of necessity, and desires to place on  record its unqualified* opposition to the proposition which is before you." " ,i  Huron-Mich. .... 4.25  Erie ........:.:,.....,.... 3.87  Ontario ..'...���������......;.... 3  St. Lawrence ...... 3.37  6.25  5.5  4.25  4:75  conditions.  8.5  7.75  6.  6.75  For low-  That is under average  water conditions, these reductions in level would  be larger, thus increasing the injury to navigation.  In 1911, for example, when Lakes Huron and*  Michigan were at a lower level than usual, a diversion of IOjOOO cubic feet per second would  lower the level 7.25 inches. The average annual  range of these lakes is 1.21 feet, and the proposed  diversion would thus affect. their levels to the.  extent of 50 per cent, of the annual range. The  Commission of Conservation contended, therefore,  that such a-diversion was in contravention of  Article VIII of the Boundary Waters Treaty of  1909, which forbids the construction of works  that "materially" affect the level of international  boundary waters.  Would Decrease Cargo Capacity.  How such a lowering of levels would affect ship-,  Sing is evident from the fact that the United  tates Board of Engineers estimates that a loss  of draught of 6 inches will decrease the cargo  capacity of a vessel of 20 feet draught by 6 per  cent., and of a vessel of 12 feet draught by 8 per  cent. About 65,000,000 tons of freight annually  pass over the Great Lakes and the effect on navigation of a diversion of 10,000 cubic feet per second at Chicago would be enormous. Furthermore,  the Canadian Government, at great expense, has  completed a waterway for vessels of 14 feet  draught at low water from Fort William to Montreal, and for vessels of 30 feet draught from  Montreal to the sea. Every inch substractdd from  the available depth represents a loss of cargo-capacity, and a loss of income that is aggravated in  low-water years such as 1911.  Lessen* Power at Niagara.  The Commission contended that every cubic  foot of water abstracted at Chicago would reduce  the amount of power that could be generated at  Niagara Falls and in the rapids of the St. Lawrence River. This would injure the provinc.es of  Ontario and Quebec, and the state of New York.  The Chicago Drainage District contemplated  using the water diverted from Lake Michigan for  generating power near Chicago, but this would  involve an economic waste, because of the lower  head available there. The amount of water used  to produce one horse-power at Lockport, 111.,  would generate from 5 /to 7 horse-power at  Niagara.  Diversion Not Necessary.  It was further contended that Chicago did not  need, for sanitary purposes, the.amount of water  she was asking permission to divert. The charter  of the Chicago Sanitary District provides for a  dilution of the sewage effluent of 333.3 cubic feet  per second for every 100,000 of population. This  is double the dilution considered necessary by the  British Rivers Pollution Commission. The Commission of Conservation held that Chicago should  be compelled to treat its sewage to reduce the  bacterial content before emptying it into the  Drainage Canal. With a bacterial reduction of  one-half, the present permitted diversion of 4167  cubic feet per second would provide for a population 600,000 greater than the present one of  2,185,283. A bacterial reduction of two-thirds  would suffice for a population of 4,157,000 people.  The additional diversion, therefore, could not be  said to be needed for sanitary purpose.  POWER DEVELOPMENT.  As a matter of fact, the promoters of the  Chicago Drainage Canal have not been backward in stating openly that they intended to  develop and sell power from the Drainage Canal  to reimburse themselves for expenditures made.  Lyman E. Cooley, late Chief Engineer of the  Sanitary District and one of the principal promoters of the project, declared it was his "hope  and intention" to excavate a channel having a  capacity of 16,667 cubic feet per second, and  this he estimated "will produce 173,000 horsepower, and, with the revenue therefrom, the  State of Illinois proposes eventually to recoup  itself for its expenditures and contribution to  the deep water-way.'V From this it would seem  NOTES OF THE WEST.  (Continued from Page 1)  McKenzie might have been alive now.  This truckling to Yankeeism has got to stop,  and I never for one felt so ashamed of my adopted  Country as when reading Hibbert Tupper's remarks before a Seattle club, as to the wonderful  American spirit Canadians exhibited when turning down reciprocity. These sugary-coated kind  of remarks are made to tickle the ears of such  groundlings as were grovelling before him, and I  hold them worse than lying a hundred times. Why  can not our public men get out and say the open,  manly thing, and stay with it?  It is to combat this pro-American spirit which  is fast sapping up our local patriotism that the  New Timers" League is to be formed, which I trust  may develop into a British Columbia Society, pure  and simple. Such a body has a fine scope for work  in Vancouver, if not in ther whole province.  Imagine the impertinence of an American firm  actually writing the City Council to submit a  plan and tender for a new civic bridge!//The C. P.  R. are just as bad offenders. One American'firm  they are giving out Vancouver orders to, simply  has a room number in a hotel, and I presume conduct their business from there.        V .  The new League will, let us hope, get after this  sort of business and see to it that Vancouver citizens come first, and moreover that in civic contracts no alien firm be allowed to hold one.  Our American friends are cute enough to see  to this and what is sauce for the goose used to be  considered food for the gander also.

But there is no grasp  comprehensive in him.  Take Browning. He is virile, and while he  looks toward action, he never reaches it, and  his interpretations need an interpreter; and instead of lifting them, simply tax our souls.  Take Arnold.

Their theme is more to them than  the words, outbursts at times they are. in which  they portray the unity of a people and God the  Guide and Protector they love to bring to us.

Ships do and  will continue to enter and leave the port at any  stage of the tide, by day or night, with perfect  safety, wholly regardless of the current at the  Narrows. The matter of real consequence in connection with the dredging operations is not  where the tidal current will thereby be increased  or reduced, but whether the large expenditure of  public moipy upon this work can be so controlled,  and its results so applied as to provide, or contribute to the provision of, a necessary and permanent and ample public highway across the  Inlet, or whether material that might be go applied  to public advantage is to be wastefully dumped  upon a spoilbank in deep water, leaving it for  another draught upon public or private resources  to provide a crossing of the Inlet that has become  an urgent necessity.

Situated on rising ground it overlooks  Burrard Inlet and picturesque North  Vancouver���������with ita background of  blue wooded snow-capped mountains,  and False Creek and English Bay in  another direction. For the most part,  Grandview is built on a western slope,  which ensures for it a full measure of  sunshine and protection from the eastern winds during the winter months.  Although cars for all parts pass  along Commercial Drive every few  minutes, it is quite unnecessary for  residents of Grandview to go into the  city, or elsewhere, to do their shopping, for, as a glance through the advertising columns of the "Western  Call" will show, everything that is  needed by an up-to-date household  can be obtained in tbe district and  prevailing priceB are much lower than  the expenses of a city establishment  would permit of.  While riding a motorcycle on Westminster Road last Tuesday, Mr. C.  Jenkins of East Collingwood'was at  most instantly killed in a collision  with an automobile. Mr. Jenkins was  travelling at a rapid rate in the opposite direction ,to that of the auto.  When just in front of the car his front  wheel caught in a rut, throwing him  heavily against the front of the auto.  He was taken immediately to.the local police station, where he died a  few minutes later. No blame was attached to the driver of the automobile,  which contained a party of Belling-  ham people, the accident being deemed entirely unavoidable. Mr. Jenkins  waa-married and leaves a widow but  no1 children. He had jUBt entered the  electrical contracting business.  Earls Road sub-station of the B. C.  Electric Railway is now in full working order and Strathcona Road, part  of South Vancouver and Block 41 are  now being illuminated from this point  Three electricians, each working an  eight-hour spell, are in charge.  One hundred arc lights are being  fed by the new sub-station, which is  situated about 200 yards east of Earls  Road station.   .  This is the Biggest Sale of  Wall Paper this Season.

The total coat of the  widening from 66 ft. to 80 ft. was estimated at $140;000, and the valuations  mentioned by Mr. Williams were approved by the meeting, some fifty  members of which gave their signatures for options. About two-flftha.  of the owners have already agreed  to surrender the requisite seven feet  of land on each side of the road. -A  petition for a car line along Clark  drive from Powell street to Fifteenth  avenue was gone into at the same  meeting.  A junior lacrosse team is being organized ln Grandview under the leadership of Mr. H. A. ShllUngford. Two  or three practices have already taken  place at Buffalo park, and any new  candidates for membership should apply to Mr. Shillingford.  The East End market In Venables  street, which was opened last year,  does not appear to be in a very flourishing condition. We notice that several of the stalls have been given nr  by the tradesmen, with the result that  the large ground floor area presents a  .somewhat lonely appearance. The  management of the dancing hall above,  too, haB been severly rated by the  Grandview Ratepayers' Association,  who at their meeting on March 7 referred to alleged disgraceful scenes  taking place there at the conclusion  of dances. It was decided to communicate with the city council on the  subject.  Alex Crawfard  LADIES TAILOR  1015 COMMERCIAL DRIVE  Imported 8aitinn In Blue.

During the discussion of the  matter in the council Aid. Kirkpatrick  raised objections to the acquisition of  the former, but the purchase was supported by Aid. Enright and, of course,  by the local aldermen.  The compensation payable to owners in D. L. 264A in respect to survey  damages will be settled some time in  the course of the year, the city comptroller recently stated. The assessed  damages already amount to over $80,-  000, payment for which will be derived from loans to be made by the  city. Some additional claims have  lately been put in, and the commissioner, Mr. Abbott, has appointed  April 1 at the city hal for enquiry into  these.  The scheme for widening Clark  drive., which has been under consideration for the laEt twelve months,  seems to be making progress.  The property owners on the drive  held a meeting at the city hall on  March 8, when Mr. "Williams, the city  land purchasing agent, submitted his  Once more BOD AND GUN IN CANADA is out with a special Spring Fishing number���������the April issue���������and aB  usual there is something to interest,  fishermen in every province of the Dominion. The Best Easy Fishing Club's  Canadian Outing on the French Blver  is the opening number, and, believe us,  it is a good one, illustrating the fine  sport indulged in by a party of American sportsmen who answered the call  of the wild in Algonquin Park- In  this story it was not the big fish that  got away as is evidenced by reproductions of photographs taken by tbe  "Official Photographer," who accompanied the party, one of which, "I love  My Best Girl, but O you Muscallonge,"  has been utilized as a cover cut. Of  exceptional interest also is the account of a fishing trip through Tusket  Lakes, Nova Scotia. In the Game Conservation Department the Pump or Repeating Shotgun is discussed from various standpoints and under the heading of the Culture of Black and Silver  Foxes a second instalment entitled,  "Heredity," is published. Other articles are in keeping with the character  of a special fishing number of thi6  Canadian magazine, which is published by W. J. Taylor, Limited, Woodstock, Ont.

If a panful of lime is kept in the  closet with preserves and jellies, it  will prevent them from molding.  If ivory has become smoke-stained,  clean it by first immersing It in benzine, then going over it with a brush.  Salt water will clean bamboo furniture and Chinese and Indian "matting,  and will prevent it from turning yellow,      r  White clothes which have become  yellow from age may be restored by  soaking in buttermilk for several days,  changing the milk each day.  Line all lunch boxes with oiled  paper aud food will not only retain its  freshness, but not taste of the box in  which it is placed.  For elderly persons or sick people,  it is often refreshing to hang up a  Wet sheet during the'heat of the day.,  The sheet should be dipped In water  and wrung dry enough not to drip,  then hang over a line or clotheshorBe  in the living room. The moisture  passes from the sheet and reduces the  temperature. As the sheet dries, it  may be dipped again.  Tomato Salad:���������Peel medium-sized  tomatoes, remove a thin slice from the  top of each, take out the seeds, and  some of the pulp, -sprinkle inside with;  salt, invert7 and let stand thirty ������dn-  utes. Shred one-half head small cabbage. Let stand two hours in one  quart of cold water to which two table-  spoonsfuls salt have been added.  Cook slowly for thirty minutes,^one-  half cupful each cold water and vinegar, a bit of bay leaf, one-half teaspoon  of peppercorns, one-fourth teaspoonful  of mustard seeds^ and six cloveB.  Strain and pour over the cabbage  drained from salt waer. Let stand two  hours, again drain and refill tbe tomatoes. . '���������   ���������  Rub brass bedsteads with sweet oil,  then polish with a dry cloth. The  brass will shine.  To darn merino underwear thoroughly and neatly, procure some white  mosquito netting. Take on a sufficient slie to cover the thin place of  hole, basket fashion, with the usual  mending wool and a fine darning  needle.  Never use a wooden spoon in nil*  Ing any food containing onion, nor  chop onions in a wooden bowl, as tbe  onion flavor remains in the wood and  cannot be removed for a long time.  Such a spoon will impart an onion flavor^ to other foods.  Candied Sweet Potatoes:���������Wash six  medium-slsed aweet potatoes, using a  brush, and cook in boiling sajted wa-.  tr twenty minutes. Drain, pare and  ���������lJace in a small pan. Mix one cupful  of sugar and one-half cupful of melted  butter, and put over the potatoes.  Bake in a slow oven one hour and  thirty minutes. ' /  l( a piece of cheese is carefully  wrapped in a cloth,wrung out in vinegar, it will neither dry nor gather  mold.  Never leave foodstuffs of any kind  in cardboard boxes, as they will not  only gather moisture, but will attract  insects."   If a fish is dipped In milk and then  in flour or cracker crumbs it will  brown quite as well as though first  dipped in egg.  Curried Onions: ���������Fry, sliced onions  in butter or fat; salt and pepper, then  add one teaspoonful curry, two raw  eggs aud a few-drops of lemon juice.  Serve hot.  Ginger Siyum:���������Scald one cup of  molasses and pour while hot over one  egg beaten with one cup of sugar,*one  teaspoonful of ginger and one soda.  Then add one teaspoonful of vinegar  and flour to make a stiff batter. Knead  quite hard and cut thin.  Baked Quinces:���������Pour boiling water over the quinces, and when cold  rub with a soft cloth. Core them and  place them in a granite baking pan.  Add two-thirds as much sugar as fruit,  add a chopped lemon; cover with wa-  i ter, set them in the oven and cook until tender. Serve wih whipped cream.  Salmon Salad Molds:���������One cup of  cold salmon, one-half teaspoonful of  lemon juice, one-half teaspoonful of  parsley, two drops of tabasco sauce,  one tablespoonful of gelatine. Mix the  salmon, lemon, parsley, tabasco and  gelatine, dissolved in a little water,  with enough salad dressing to moisten.  Wet one-half dozen molds. Fill with  salmon, level the top of each one,  place on ice, and turn out on leaves,  or on a small dish and serve with mayonnaise.  No housework is harder on the  hands than the cleaning of silver in  the old way. I have used the following method with perfect success. Pour  into a tin dispan one and a half gal-  i lons-of boiling water, add four heaping  ^ teaspoonfuls of soappowder, and washing soda twice the size of an egg; let  it boil; then lay your silver in a square  j cloth, keeping hold of the corners, dip  j into solution, covering all parts of the  silver with the same; hold it there  from two to five minutes; then remove, and wash in soapy water; wipe  dry.���������Household Journal.

The carriage ot the  bead bus inw-b to do with the appearance of both.  What sentimental poet lias uot sung  tbe praise* of ii graceful neck and  pretty, well rounded shoulders? And  what.girl of the day does out covet  tbem? ; If she Ik the lurky possessor  of both can any one blame ber for being tbe least lilt proud?, lint tf'sbe  possesses neither and goes much into  society uo one/-an vensiire ber If she  uses every effort to Improve herself  In these respect* Mince the garb of society require* a liberal display of these  portions of the In >dy.  A "pair ot shoulders curbing oat from  a graceful neck and sloping down to  shapely anus will always call forth  admiration. And if they are white,  with Just enough, of the rose tint underneath to create the impression of  health, so much the more will they be  admired. Tbeu. too. their, poise most  be perfect and fheir lines graceful.  Exercise, massage a nd proper (ftrrtnge  assist greatly In developing shapely  outlines, while by applications of unguents and lotions the whiteness of  tbe skin may be brought out or increased.'   ��������� ������ '  Balancing the shoulders properly. Is  necessary at all times. If tbey are  well formed It is necessary to walk or  sit correctly In order to keep them so.  Young women who are .engaged for  several hours dally at clerical work  sitting at a desk, are apt to lean more  to one side than to the other..and this  very position bus made many uneven  shoulders.: Of coorae the position one  takes In leaning toward the desk and  oftep tbe kind of light thrown opon  tbe work are responsible for tne nn  even positions. Even If you cannot  leave tbe desk for any length of time  it is a wise plan to *et np and walk  ap and down the door once or twice,  raise tbe bead blgb and throw back Ike  ���������boulders. If you cao get to an open  window to Inhale and exhale a few  times properly so moch tbe better.  Lnocb hour gives scarcely enough  eierclse for tbo������e whose occupation  compels them to hmd a sedentary life.  Don't call a mexseai-er for every  trifling errand. Get up occasionally,  stretch the limb>. throw hack tbe shoulders and walk about ������ few times between morning and noon and between  noon and going borne in tbe evening. I?  will do yoo s great deal of good, and  no doubt yoq can mage np for the few  moments taken encb time for recreation. If yon d������ oot do this yon cannot  expect to have well formed and nicely  rounded suouider*. in taking up work  which will oeceMMitate the raising and  use of one arm or tbe other the individual should attempt In some way to  equalise the JMMitfun so tbat lopsided  results may be avoided.  When the shoulders tire thin and hot-  low correct carriage, with daily appll*  cations of a good skin fotsl. wbicb  should ne. massaged with a firm, rounding movement ������r the palm of tbe band  and nibbed wen into the skin, will  prove beneficial.

Whilst he had been playing his game  with the old chief, Kineeshaw had  slipped from the circle.

Then It seemed to him that something heavier than a coyote moved  among tbe sage brush on the ridge to  his left. He listened, but tbe noise  was not repeated. Jim waa too good  a plainsman to persuade himself that  his ears had played blm false because  he could not understand their message, and beside, the red roan had  ieard tt too. The horse was standing  wltb bis ears pricked, watching as he  would never have watched for coyotes.  In spite of tbe cowboys' constant attention those vagabond thieves were  far too numerous on tbe home ranch  for the roan to pay much attention to  them. Still watching the ridge, which  was as yet bm a vague line* in the fog,  Jim saw at last what he took to be two  coyotes moving slowly along it. A  longer scrutiny showed him four, no,  five Indistinct objects passing just  above the line, and at last he knew  them for the heads of riders passing.  as they believed, unseen on tne further  aide of the ridge." He could s-e-how  the heads rose and fell with tbe movements of th*������ horses beneath them, and  then for a moment the riders came  Slalnly Into alght where a dip occurred  i the ridge.  In the mist and darkness he might  never have noticed them at the distance at which they passed, so vague  and so silent were tbey, if his ears  had not warned him of their coming;  hut they saw him, of tbat^ie felt sure,  though be bad not stirred in his lair  of wet sage brush, and curiously  enough bis horse bad not whinnied.  For a moment he thought of calling  to them, hut men do not ball every  passer-by on the prairie, and he  changed bis.mind. He did not want  anything of. tbem,- so he lay still,  whilst they, without a pause or turn  of the head, rode silently past him and  disappeared In the mist.  "Indians, of course," he muttered,  "tbey must have seen the horse." And  then he tell to wondering why they  had made no sign and why they were  riding at tha't hour In the morning towards the Risky Ranch.  In the ordinary course of things  though they would have passed by In  silence, and near enough to satisfy  their own curiosity.  He did not feel easy about it. The  expedition of the posse bad accomplished nothing)unless it were to prove  that the Chilcotens had broken up their  camp and left the country, probably  for ah early winter hunt towards Tatlo  Lake, and in all the years that he had  lived on the plains and in B. C. Jim  had never had any serious trouble  with Indians.  He had become so used to them Indeed as peaceful neighbors, that he  had almost forgotten the red stories  of which the plains used to be full:  legends of burnt ranches, of men and  women murdered across their own  thresholds, and brutally mutilated in  order that their long hair might trim  a chief's robe. But those stories were  of Sioux and Apaches. He doubted  whether the Indians of B.C. had ever  taken scalps until he remembered a  hideous dancing mask which hung in  the Boss's library that had tufts of  long soft hair round it, as to the origin  left elbow across tbe rifle which he jH tn*y* bad a gun amongst them Id i&rlco, and made his way Into that  had Uken from his saddle before pick-j h������Te let them havs It ^ _ ^ ^ | high-sounding hostelry, a wooden  eting his horse.' |      "       -   -- - -  "Oh, Jim. Jim! You dear old Jim!  Come quickly; we want you ao badly."  was What he seemed to hear; though  as the five squatted silently round him  they uttered no word.  Except for tbat bludgeon they were  none of them armed,, a curious thing  Jim thought for Indians who carry  rifles as townsmen carry walking  canes, nor was he much Jess puzslcd  when he realised tbat these were the  very five whose weapons he had smashed against the pine trees.- Riflss were  not as common th-n as they are to-day  amongst the Indiana, but as one of  these was Khelowna, tbe chief, he at  any rate should have been able to  replace his broken weapon.  For what seemed like an. hour the  five savage figures crouched upon  their hams around Combe, like wolves  around a kill, their mouths shut, their  limbs motionless, only their eyes alive,  but those so vigilant that they seemed  to fellow his very thoughts. It Is his  vigilance and his eternal patience  which enables the Indian to win in  bit life-long battle with the wild  things around him. The beasts' senses  are keener than those of bis pursuers  and he loves life, hut tbe tireless patience of tbe hunter wears down tbe  patience ot the hunted.  Jim. felt the power of this watching  silence. It was as if be were being  mesmerized.  At last be broke It.  "Well,"   he  said.    "What  do  you  want, Khelowna?"  The chief shifted his seat a little.  "What you doing here?" he asked.  "Taking a cultus coolie" (stroll).  "oO'much cold wind.   Cultus coolie  no good."   '���������'."���������������  "Then why are you ont?"  "Indians got no grub.   Oot no guns  now.   Indiana very hungry.   You got  any grub?" and be reached out bis  band like a cat that steals from the  table, his eye all tbe time upon Jim,  and drew away the   cartridge   case  which had contained the sandwiches.  That was the first move in the  game.  Until .that day no Indians on the  Risky lands would have dared openly  to take a white man's property from  under his very eyes without leave, and  Jim when he saw the chief take his  cartridge case and search it, understood that the old restraint was breaking down and that a change was in tbe  air. All the food had been eaten, but  the flask retrained In the-bag, and this  Khelowna opened, unscrewing the top  with clumsy fingers and sniffing at the  mouth of it like a beast.  "No more fire water?" he asked.  "No, there wouldn't have been any  for you anyway. Think I'm going to be  run in for giving Indiana whiskey?"  Khelowna laughed, and his laugh  was like a wolf's snarl...  "Whiskey very good for Indians.  Any water-here?"  "Plenty. Nothing but water in this  cursed hole."  "Vou go get some," and the chief  held out the flask to Jim, but thpugh  the blood rose .to his face at tbe insolence of the bidding, Jim neither stirred nor held out bis hand for tbe flask.  You go, I say, hyak (quickly)," and  wanted him to do, so he Bwung himself  Into the saddlo, and rode steadily east.  Twice that morning ho saw Indians,  in small bands, bat on both occasions  he thought that be had been'seen before he saw them, and was uncertain  of the direction ln which tbey were  heading, and once, just before reaching the Fraser, be came across a .large  camp of'Chilcotens, just preparing to  move..  To his questions (bey replied that  they were en route to TaOo Lake, but  they struck him as unfriendly, and lying for some set purpose.   *  If such thing* had ever happened ln  B. C. he would bave suspected tbat an  Indian rising was on foot, but tbat wis  practically impossible; and Jim dismissed the Idea aa horn ot fatigue and  an empty stomach.  And then he beard the voice ot the  Fraser, and presently came over grey  bluffs to that great river. It is never  a pretty river, no, not even In springtime, when ihe patches of white flowering olall buBhea do their best for it.  Grand as it is at times, and nt Hell's  date and other places, picturesque, s>  show for tlia C.P.R. and a pleasing  horror for tourists who -ride safely  along its-precipitous banks In a luxurious Pullman car, its waters are too  turbid, and its strangely shaped mud  cliffs too weirdly colored with mineral  matter, to be more than grotesque and  uncanny. At the crossing where Jim  struck H, the river was certainly not  looking Its best. Like the whole country it seemed in evil mood. Tbe river  bad already felt the first touch of winter; small cakes of Ice were thickening  its dun-colored waters, grinding  against one another, and rendering a  crossing a matter of some difficulty.  However, the terry man made light  of It.  "It's all right, sonny, for twenty  hours yet, and maybe tor a week after  tbat, but it's coming, it's coming sure,  and It I was yon I wouldn't get on' no  tear In Sody Creek as'U keep you  more'n a week. If you do, you may  have to wait there until you can walk  across. A week on bug-juice ought to  do you, though cow punching does  seem to make man powerfully dry." ���������  . The ferryman was new to Caribou,  and did not know Jim Combe, but be  spoke from a long experience in other  parte of the North-West, where pro-,  hibition had mightily increased the  thirst: of the people.  "All right, Cap." Everyone Is a captain who owns anything bigger than a  canoe In. Canada. "I'll see to that.  You be on hand In an hour's time."  The man laughed good-naturedly.  "Sure," he said. "1 will, but you  won't be. I never knowed a man yet  as didn't calculate to do his business  in half an hour, nor one as did it In a  day.    8eems to me this here metro  saw.- A great stove wbicb made a red  glow., lit th? middle of tbe bar room,  and raised the temperature to something nearly tropical, was the only  apparent apology for any man's coming inside.  The floor, which had not been swept  for weeks, was a chaos of dead cigar  ends, and a table at which three men  sat thumping down their aces in a  game of Steamer whist, was foul with  kerosene oil, whilst the small windows  wore blinds to keep out any ray of  sunlight, which might be deluded Into i  entering the, place:  A drowsy bar tender leaned on his  elbow across the bar, watching the  game listlessly, spitting and encouraging the players by turns, and In front  of tbe stove a middle-aged man ot immense brawn, sat bunched up, looking  wearily Into the glow.  Jim, who knew the man's story,  wondered what he saw in the fire. A  few yean ago the loafer bad been a  steady and prosperous rancher ln a  small way, but his wife had died in  child birth, and since then the Ideal  had been bis home.  Unless he lived only in his work the  Ideal would nave to be Jim Combe's  home in the future. For lone men  with nothing to look forward to there  are only two alternatives In tbe West,  work or drink, and Jim knew it. With  a shudder be pulled himself together  and turned to tbe bartender, who bad  begun mechanically to polish up certain solid little tumblers at the advent  of a newcomer, whilst the whist.players moved restlessly in their chairs,  ready to "line up" to tbe bar at tbe  first sound of thole magic words,  "What shall it be, gentlemen?" But  Jim did not utter them, and the hope  died out In their face. Instead, he  asked civilly where the doctor was.  "Gone to a buryln'," the bar men replied. "It's all deadheads to-day," be  added with a sneer, which Invited the  approval of the disappointed whist  players.  ,   "Will he he back soon?"  "It all depends, Mister, on how the  corpse travels. Corpses ain't gay on  the hoof, as you. may have heard, and  it's all of fifteen miles to Snow Gulch.  Don't see why they couldn't bave left  the old man where he was. One place  is as good as another to be planted in  to my mind."  "There you're plum off tbe track,  sonny," broke in one of the players  reprovingly. "There's no call for a  man to demean himself If he does live  in Sody Crik. Old man Hayes was a  decent citizen, fix it which way you  will; took his glass reg'lar, an' paid for  it when he had any dust, and if ho  owes you a blanked cent, r.ay so, and  I'll foot the bili," and th.- speaker,  who looked p.uything but opulent, eyed  the chief, who misinterpreted Combe's  polls had ought to be called Whiskey  the bar tender fiercely, and pulled out  silence, pushed the flask almost Into ' Creek 'stead of Sody  his face. I    Jim laughed at the old joke.   There  "Go to hell and get It yourself," the ! were many worse, towns than Soda  cowboy replied and his steady eyes ; Creek, but of course there was whis-  met Khelowna's without flinching.  For a moment the chief, hesitated.!  Then he threw down the flask with a  laugh, and the murderer under the pretext of picking it up, edged a thought  bearer to Jim.  As, even so, the Indian was not near  enough to strike or grip    him,    the ;  watched man never moved, and agn'n  the silent game of cat and mouse w<_ut  on. ���������      ��������� ���������   '- ���������        |  "You got good rifle, Jim?" asked the  mupderer, and he writhed forward and  laid his hand on the stock of Jim's  Winchester, pulling at it gently.  "Take your hands off," snapped the  white man, and certain now that the  Indians had not pluck enough to rush  him all together,, he whipped out his  six-shooter and covered his man.  Instantly the Indian's hand was withdrawn and a change came over the  five faces.  The Chilcotens had only calculated  upon the rifle, which they could see.  "What for you so mad, Jim?" asked  Khelowna. "Indians all time good  friends.  He not want to take you gun.".  "I know, I have plenty very good  friends. Six here, the very best," and  he glanced at the revolver ln his hand.  Then he reached forward in his turn  and took back the empty cartridge bag  from between the chief's knees, and  *v,������en before the quarrel in their camp,' the silver flask from the ground where  they had been sullen and silent, and the murderer bad dropped it.  then there bad been the reappearance For a moment he looked at the flask,  of Davies' murderer and that unlucky and then a grin-smile flickered round  onarrel.   .-      _ -   ���������  ef which he had never hitherto troubled.  Now everything seemed changed.  There was a terror abroad on the  ranch lands, not so much seen as felt,  and though he scoffed at presentimenT,  he was conscious of it himself.  The cattle had been disappearing as  they had   never disappeared before;  here had been no friendly visits from  ie  Chilcotens as there used to be.  henever he had met any of them,  key im it  *T)o you know where I can -find the  doctor?"  "In the bar of the Ideal,  stay!    You won't get the doctor there  to-day neither.   He's away up to Snow  Gulch."  Snow Gulch was fifteen miles outside Soda Creek, and Jim fretted at  this new delay.  "What is he doing up there?"  "Guess he's gone as one of a reception committee to old 'man Hayes'  place. -The old man's got a raise."  "I thought he always was mine manager. Is he owner now ? Got the mine  for his wages?"  "No, thought that wouldn't make him  a bloated millionaire by all accounts. j  The old man raised himself, sort ot in- j  formal, with a stick of giant." i  "Blown himself up? Is he.much  hurt?" I  "Don't complain any,   and   I   don't j  know as he ought to.   He's only blow-1  ed the roof off his bead, and that was  never any good to him, even for carrying his liquor."  "Do you mean to say he's dead?"  "Dead as a mutton."  "Then why has the doctor gone out?"'  "Give that chunk of ice a boost with  the pole will you?    That's bully," as  the great cake slid down the side of  the boat with a -dull rasping sound.  ; "WelL I don't know, I'm sure, why the  a greasy deer-skin sack,  "No, Jake, the old man didn't owe  me nothin'.   1 didn't say as be did.".  "An' you hadn't better, you slab-  sided cross between a galloot and a  buck nigger. I say as old man Hayes  has a right to all the frills he has a  Or no, mind to when it comes to buryin,' and  I'd like to hear from the gent as  thinks contrary."      '  To patch up the breach, Jim stood  drinks. It is the only civility you can  show to your neighbor in some places,  and then for want of anything else to  do, rather than in the hope of hurrying  a funeral procession, Jim borrowed  Jake's cayuse, and rode out to meet  the burying party.  CHAPTER XII.  A Backwoods Funeral  On a steep bluff, through the heavy  brush of which a narrow trail had  been roughly cut, Jim found a party  of about a dozen men, half of whom  wore black coats. They were almost  the only black coats in Caribou, and  had been collected with infininte trouble to give tone to the proceedings.  There was also one top hat . That belonged to the doctor, and was worn by  him. The bottle, too large for a medicine bottle, which protruded from his  coat pocket, belonged to the party.  When Jim first sighted them, the  proper spirit of their occupation possessed them. Two and two they paced  behind a sorry nag. at whose head  paced   the   doctor   and   another.    All  had their hats off, and their coin* oa,  and no one spoke.  Upon the horse's "back was all that  remained of old man Hayes, a white  handkerchief bound reverently over  lis face, and his body decently disposed In a blanket.      *  In a corner of this, unfortunately.  ~vas caught one ot those sharp-ended  boughs which B. C. people call a rain-  pike. Gently and without a word the  doctor wrcsMed with tbe Impediment.  and the hors? stood still whilst he did  so.  At thd next step a small bough  caught the handkerchief and lifted It  off the face. It was recovered and replaced without a word. yAs soon as  this'had been done the horse stumbled  over an unseen log, and its pack  moved up a foot nearer to Its neck.  The doctor's companion caught the  beast by the head and jerked at Its bit.  as a hint to It to take more care, and  at the same moment another ramplke  caught In the blank/tr This time to*  horse could not stand still, neither  would the ramplke loose Ita hold. For  nearly thirty seconds tbe two at the  hone's head did their beat to undo ths  tangle, then the horse plunged forward, the nlankct tore, some ot the  lashings gave, and old man Hayes rolled out with a thump, brandishing one  stiffened limb in ghastly fashion as h.  '���������_]��������� .-JA-       *������**  The doctor's mate swore, and but  fluency made np for his former silence.  , "This is a positive scandal, boys.  It's Irreverent to the,dead," Jim heard  the doctor say.  "It's blanked poor packing, that's  what it is," letorted one of them.  "Ed dont know enough to tie a granny  knot let alone the diamond hitch."  "Yon tie it better yonraelf, you web-  footed blue none."  "That's dead easy, and I'll tie your  blamed .neck In * - knot when I'm  through with it," aald the other angrily, taking off his coat to work and  swear more easily. But he did not  find it "dead easy."  "Cinch the beggar good and tight,"  suggested on?. "Corpses ain't , got  no feelin's," and putting bis /foot  against the horse ha threw hla weight  into" the rope.  "Hold on, Mo; you'll break him all  np." l  "Not much. He's stiff enough.  There, git up now." and ho gave tho  horse a slap on Ita quarter.  * Frightened by Ita mishap, or more  conscious of the dead nature of ita  burden than ita maetera thought, tho  horse bolted, galloped through the  range of timber, and on to the open  hillside, where Jim wan standing, and  there with two or throe vicious bock*  sent the body of Mr. Hayes rolling  gown-the slope.  This denouement evoked s> volley o.  imprseatlona from tho am*a%*mt  that hag no apparent etlect upon  gravity of the lata Hr. Bnyea,       _ .  . Hover In hla life had he proceeded  with more deliberate dignity thisf be  did then In bis death.  The pitch of  the hillside waa only Just steep enough  to Induce a bale ot good* to roll, W  that tbe swathed body went down It Iu  slow time, with grave pauses, whilst  the limbs ot it, which   bad   broken  loose, swung in solemn mockery aa  the body'rolled over.  In spite of pauses, it would pot stop.  As soon as ons moved to catch it, l>  swung its arms and started again, recovering its momentum sufficiently to  elude itB would-be captors.  It was aB if. the dead man was playing a grim game witb/his old cronies.  At last It r. ached the road, which  wound round the base of the hill.  "Well, I'm blanked, if that don't b at  everything.   The old man always ws  pig-headed, but  who'd  nave  thoii!?!n  he'd have kicked  like that at being  packed, and he's a corpse!"  "Guess he thinks he can take care  of hlsself now same as he alius did.  He's crossed this trail many a night  when he hadn't any more e<m������e than  he has now."  But the stilln-^s of the boiv brought  back 8onie\)i the bid feeling of awe.  "Hush!" bald one. 'What-ave..-you,  giving us? That ain't no way to talk  before corpses."  "Corpse or no corpse," aald <* bolder  spirit, "it's a long time between  drinks, and this burying is a mighty  dry entertainment. Doc! Let's have  a look at that bottle.";  Tlie doctor produced the medicine,  which was labelled Scott and M������c-  kay's Special, and in turn each of tl-e  mutes drank to their old companion.  "Guess he'll travel more sociable  now," said Ai, wiping his mouth with  his coat sleeve. "But we'll have co  pack him ourselves. Got to take off  our frills for that business," and with  a sigh of relief every man tock olf  his coat, and tied it In a back on his  back.  At this point Jim Combe jolued  them, was given a drink and solemnly  introduced to the corpse.  In return he lent a hand at bearing  it. and abandoning all ideas of a processional pace, or the decorum of silence, the party in its shirt sleeves,  trotted to within sight of Soda Creek  before dark. Here, however, the procession paused, reformed, put on its  coats and funeral face, and marched  with great pomp to tbe door of the  Ideal. N  Here, again, an unexpected difficul  ty met them. The Ideal was the on Iy  place to which ony one went on arriving at Soda Creek, but In spite of tiie  former habits of their charge, it w. s  evidently now no place for Mr. Hayes.  "Poor old boss, 1 guess you ain't allowed in here now. Where'Il we take  him to, doc?"  An empty house was suggested  where the body would be safe from the  dogs until the clergyman came for it  next day, and there it was locked up  for the night.  But even then the doctor was not  ready for his patient at the Risky-  Ranch. By unanimous consent it was  held fitting that Soda Creek should  celebrate old man Hayes' reception  in due form, and no protest on Jim's  part was of any avaii. The men had  had enough whiskey to make them as  stubborn as muks. Jim Combi was  in despair. Every drink that the reck  less crowd took made it more noisy  and more quarrelsome, whilst the doctor was rapidly progressing from tiie  convivial to the maudlin stags cf  drunkenness.

SOUTH  The St. Mary Easter vestry meeting was held in the Parish Hall on  Wednesday, April 10, when Mr. Grout  was again appointed vicar's warden,  Mr. Frewin was elected people's warden, and Messrs. Moss and Cowell as  sidesmen. Messrs. Cowell and Nor-  bury  were  elected  delegates  to  the  synod, with Mr. Yates and Capt. Mackenzie as alternatives. Mr. Moss was  appointed envelope treasurer. The announcement that. $44 had been subscribed during Holy and Easter weeks  as self denial offerings, gave deep satisfaction for now the debt oh the temporary church buildir" 5, wiped5 out.  The payment of $1,500 for the site  on which the church and hail stand,  is the most serious item to be faced,  and various proposals were made to  find the best way to accomplish this,  the best way being Mr. Bulkeley's  suggestion that each old country member of the congregation should write  home to his or1 her former rector or  vicar and beg for an offering to be given towards this purpose.

In the year from Easter,  1811, to Easter, 1912, the sum of $1,  400 has been raised for church pur-  poses, a commodious Parish Hall erected and the following guilds and societies started, viz: Church of England Men's Society; Church Lad's Cadets; Women's Auxiliary and Moth  ers' Union, while a Baptism and Communicants Roll was kept in the church  porch for church members to sign.

In connection with the report In  The Dally Province of the proceedings  attending the laying of the corner  stone of the new Baptist church in  South Vancouver on Easter Monday  afternoon. Rev. Owen Bulkeley writes  criticising its correctness. He submits the following as the text of the  two; addresses delivered by himself  and Mr. Eakin:  Rev. Owen Bulkeley said be stood  on that platform with mingled, feel  Ing of sorrow and thankfulness; of  sorrow that a new edifice was to be  raised bearing the label of one torn)  of Christianity only, which tended to  perpetuate the divisions among Christians, whom our Savior prayed might  "be all one." There was much talk  of union among the Nonconformist  bodies, but not a breath of reunion  with the old mother church of England, from which they all sprang.,  the earliest of them some 400 years  ago.  As a duly ordained priest of that  ancient branch of the Holy Catholic  Apostolic church, he could not biit  regret that this schism still existed,  and that there was little sign of reunion with the Church of England.  I He ' had to decide whether his  presence or absence on that day would  help towards re-union, aud he had decided that bis presence might do a  little. On tbe other hand, in the midst  of a world of iniquity, indifference,  doubt, infidelity, scepticism, atheism.  Christian Science, "falsely so called,,"  and theosophy, the two latter but rivals of the long-exploded heathen philosophy; he could not but be thankful  that another edifice should be raised  in the name of Christ; for wherever a  Christian church stood, it served as a  beacon to call attention to the faith of  Christ crucified and risen again, and  therefore as a protest against human  j erro-.  j    Mi*.

He, thought that maybe why  * the churches, the Church of England,  ������! his own, and all others failed to reach  J! all, was that they were too tied and  4 I bound to old associations, and had not  * j sufficiently expanded to meet modern  requirements.
