Thus South Vancouver  takes another step forward in the inarch of prog-  [(ress. We understand the contract calls for operations to be commenced as soon as the legal formalities are completed. The news will be gratifying to the working men of South Vancouver;  undoubtedly they have suffered through the lack  of constant employment more than most people  imagine.   The contract calls for preference to be  .given, to South Vancouver residents, and as there  is a large amount of paving to be done yet  throughout the municipality, it is the best guarantee that the contractors will live up to the  terms of the contract. If- the Bithulithic people  give as satisfactory a job as they did on Kings-  way, then the council may take the credit to themselves of making a wise selection. In coming to  a decision on this contract the council would be  guided by past experience, and as we underatodd  they were unanimous in their decision. The material and workmanship would be the dominating  factors in helping them to arrive at this decision.

Yashiro, now Minister of  the navy. She sank two Russian cruisers of f the  Korean port of Chemulpo.  The Azuma, also a first-class cruiser, is another vessel that took part in the Russo-Japanese  war.  The Asama was built in England in 1898, and  the Azuma was built in France in 1899. The  former is 422 feet long, with a beam of 62 feet, a  draught of 24 feet and displacement of 9,700  tons. The latter has a length of 452 feet, a beam  3 of 59 feet, a 23-foot draught and a displacement  of 9,326 tons.

Three veins  between eighteen and thirty inches were found on  the Labine claims. Assays give $1,1300 in gold and  $130 in silver to the ton, which is a most spectacular surface showing.  The find has caused more than ordinary interest among mining men. The claim lies 15  miles northwest of Barkland, find is owned by local men.  The Prtest Word from Sir Edward Carson  Sir Edward Carson's latest statement:  ���������'Let roe wy this most emphatically: There's no more chance of the Bill ever being cf-  fe^ve in UlBter thw there ii of John Bedmond becoming Bing of England- And the Government know7W The volunteers are quite ready, and they aw resolute. The Covenant is solemn,  serious, effective."  The Oil SitwatioiTin Alberta  Calgary, Alta,, June 18.���������The greatest excitement prevaUi here. The Monarch has struck  .crude oil at the unprecedented deptb ot 808 feet.  AU the "Bve wires" in town ire frantic.  The  Monarch well is i0 miles northwest of Calgary. t  Tho news has set a flame alight. Calgary will never look back. It was known that the  Albertan oil fields promised the greatest development known in the history of Western Canada,  and this news confirms the best predictions.  The strike of "black oil" on the Monarch, 80 miles north of the Dingman well disposes  of all birds of evil omen and confirms the Opinions of almost every scientist who has examined  the situation, that Alberta possesses the largest and most valuable oil field in the world.  It also moves the centre of excitement North, as tbe Western Call has repeatedly indicated would happen. The evidence now points more strongly than ever to a definite and coU  ossal oil business for Western Canada, and whilst wild catting is to be deplored yet the attempt  made in high quarters to stem the flow of money for development of the greatest of all discovered  oil fields is still more reprehensible. The reply made by Winston Churchill in Parliament to  those criticising the Admiralty for going into the oil business discloses perhaps the secret of the  opposition to present operations in Alberta. The British Government was up against the oil trust  magnates of the world, who were seeking, by their usual methods to corrall the great Persian oil  fields and thus shut out the Admiralty from any supply outside themselves. The Admiralty  stepped in with $10,000,000 and secured an open market. For this the rest of the world can bless  them���������and if the Alberta field can only be kept in the hands of tbe people���������the great Oil Trust  in its bad aspect (for it has a good one) is gone forever.  British Admiralty Invest Largely in Oil  An arrangement is announced by which the  Admiralty is to obtain control of the Anglo-Persian Oil Company in return for the subscription  of ������2,200,000 of new capital by the Government,  ������2,000,000 consisting of shares and ������200,000 of  debentures. ~  Under the'contract between the company and  the Government, which requires the sanction of  Parliament, the Government has the right to  nominate two directors with powers of veto over  any resolution of the board.    ,  The present output from the field is about  240,000 tons a year of oil fuel.  The concession covers the whole of Persia except the extreme northern provinces���������an area of  400,000 square miles. The main producing district at the present time is at Maidan-i-Naphtun,  close to the legendary site of the Garden of  Eden, where oil was probably worked by the  Babylonians. Thence a pipe line 145 miles long  runs to the refinery at Abadan, on the Euphrates,  where the oil is shipped, and where there is storage capaciity for 110,000 tons of fuel.  MEMBER FOR VANCOUVER  ������������������- -* *  Mr. H. H. Stevens returned from Ottawa on  Tuesday morning after an arduous session at the  Capital.  We quote the News-Advertiser aa fairly re*.,  presenting public opinion on our member of Par*  liament:  THE MEMBER FOB V.AN0OUVSR -  Three members will in the next Parliament  represent, the constituency for whieh Mr. Stevens  is now the representative.   While this is fair and'  constitutional it cannot be said that Greater Tan*  couver has suffered from inadequate representation in the Twelfth Parliament.   Mr. Stevens  is a remarkably capable member of the House of  Commons.   He is industrious, vigilant and vigor* ~  ous.  No trouble is too great for him where trouble  is required.   He studies carefully any matter on  which, he is to speak in the House or interview ���������  ministers and is thus able to make good his statements.   The interests "of Vancouver and of the  province have been well supported by Mr. Stev- -  ens.   It is not always easyV for a member in his  first Parliament to do his full duty by his constituents;, and at the same time take his'fair snare in  the consideration of national    questions.     Mr.  Stevens has been able to do one without leaving-  the other undone.  >  Amongst things accomplished by our member  at Ottawa for VancQgver^ may be mentioned': '  ,   The Dry Dock.  Through the efforts of Mr. Stevens, the dry  Dock Subsidies Act has been amended, raising  subsidy fyom 3 1-2 to 4 per cent.,'and arrangements almost completed with the Amalgamated  Engineering Works tfor tbe, signing of the, jLjubv  sidy contract. This will provide for a dry dock  1,100 feet long and capable of taking largest ship  afloat to cost about $6,500,000, and tbe Government will pay an annual cash subsidy of 4 per  cent, on $5,500,000.  I  In accordance with bis oft (repeated expression  of opinion, Mr. Stevens has at last succeeded in  getting the perpetual lease of Deadman's Island  declared void by tbe Exchequer Court. This  means that all tbe leasees now have is a lease  with 10 years to run. It has not yet been decided whether the government will attack the original lease, but this is more than probable.  Works Now Tinder Way Or Tenders Galled For  The Immigration Building���������to cost about  $350,000���������now being constructed.  New Postal Station on corner of Main and  Fifteenth avenue. Tenders-for this building to  be in June 22.  To cost about $90,000.

Site secured for Postoffice in South Vancouver  and plans are now being prepared for a $25,000  building.  Last of All  comes the following telegram:  "Site of new Elevator will be the Government  Dock. Geo. E. Foster." Thus locating the much  sought after grain prize with us.  Certainly our member has given a good account of his ministry.  " I  f?v  j \c  v" _>  - i  VIVIANI CABINET FOR FRANCE  Paris, June 16.���������Rene Viviani, the new Premier of France, was sustained today on his first  appearance as Premier in the Chamber of Deputies by a vote of confidence, 362 to 139.  All the Republican groups, with the exeception  pf a few irrreconcilable Radicals, gave Premier  Viviani their votes. 'M. Juarez, the Socialist  leader, alone attempted any hostile criticism.  This was directed mainly at the military policy  of the ministry.  The Premier's answers, which were straigt-  ������forward and without ambiguity, strengthened his  position with the general public and those closely  identified wth the finances of .the country. It  was evident from the Premier's attitude that he  had not the slightest intention of tampering with  the measure providing for three years' military  service.

McKay Station, Burnaby  VALUES OF VANCOUVER  REALTY REMAIN FIRM  f*TO DISCUSS the realty situation in Van-  /11   couver at the present moment is to come  V__r   face to face with one of the moat interesting situations ever yet presented to the investing public.    There never was a time in the  history of city development on the whole continent of America that such a condition arose as  that in the City of Vancouver.  Just thirty years ago, where now the towers  of stately buildings lift their lofty heads against  the sky lines, that same sky line was broken then  by the serrated reflection of the tops of stately  Douglas firs and giant red cedar trees, whose  height reached up to if it did not out rival that  of tine many sky scrapers which now stand where  once stood the forest giant.  When the word went forth that here, on the  shores of Burrard Inlet, should rise the first  coast city on the British Columbia mainland, and  that here the first Canadian transcontinental  railway should have its terminus, the effect upon  property values was not even imagined, much  less appreciated. Up to that time there had been  a struggling little hamlet, variously, known as  Granville Townsite, "Gastown," Hastings Mill,  and so on. It depended almost entirely upon the  sawmill for its business, and nearly every inhabitant was in one way or other connected with  the industry that mill represented.  Then came the townsite, surveyors, and  through the bush which covered the site of the  present city, they cut their survey lines, and  drove their pegs and laid out streets and squares,  blocks and lanes. A sale of property was put on  by the C. P. R. Railway Company, which had  been given the grant of the land forming the  major of the townsite, the Provincial Government  having held it up to that time. .  As the completion of the railway through from  Eastern Canada came near, the number of people  arriving at the new city increased. By June,  1886, the time when the disastrous forest fire  wiped out almost every vistage of building in the  young community, there was some degree of activity aroused, and while no movement that could  be called real .estate speculation had begun, there  was even then a good deal of inquiry for property, and much interest evinced in the location,  approximately, of the business centre of the new  city.  In the thirty years which have elapsed since  there was nothing but bush���������and heavy bush at  that���������over the 5,000 acres which at that time  comprised the site of Vancouver proper, the  clearing of that heavy timber has- not  been the only remarkable transition. The  terrible fire of June 14, 1886, .which wiped  out the struggling young settlement, was  but the beginning of many fires,v fortunately  better controlled, which burned away the stumps  and logs and standing timber, leaving the city, as  it is now, almost entirely cleared up.  Wonderful as that transformation has been,  the development of real estate values, which went  along with the growth of the city, has been even  more wonderful When the land now included  in Vancouver city was first set aside by the Government, the ruling price for all land in the province was $1 per acre, almost regardless of its situation, for there having been no large cities developed, the feature we now have, of land adjoining  the cities having attained recognized value on  tbat aceountrhad not yet become noticeable.  What timber still remained on the land, if it had  been logged over once, as had most of Vancouver  townsite, was not looked on as adding to the.  value, hence the remarkable fact that in less than  thirty years^-to be accurate, not over twenty-:  eight years���������a block of land, 8,750 acres in extent, has risen from a base value of approzimately  $1 per acre to a total assessed value of land, and  buildings $226,656,403, proportioned as follows:  Assessed value of realty, $150,456,660; and of  buildings, $76,199,743.;  Comparing Vancouver with other cities of the  same class���������the first, by all meahs^���������in Eastern  Canada and in the United States, it is readily  seen that realty values in Vancouver have not  reached a basis that can be called abnormal in  any way. The fact is that values in the city of  Vancouver today are at a fair investment basis-  No one holding property in the city would care  to dispose of it at less than present values, for the  reason that it represents an investment value���������  a price at which it can be put to use, built upon  and made to return revenues���������which in the last  analysis, with real estate as with any other material, is the measure of value���������what can be done  with it to produce a revenueV..  Vancouver today may be said to have begun  the third period bf her career--that of investment for revenue and production. In the first  days of the city's existence, when the project of  building a modern city on the shores of Burrard  Inlet, took shape, she took on what might be  called initial values in property. Some fifteen  years ago, after a period of quiet years following  the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway,  the city received a further stimulus, and then began the era of rapid expansion in all directions,  which resulted in the most phenomenal rise in  realty values ever experienced in this west, of  course, the discovery of gold in the Yukon, lead-  rapid expansion. To several causes was this rapid  expansion due! The initial influence, was of  courre, Ithe discovery of gold in the Yukon, leading to the great movement of gold-seekers, in the  fall of 1897 and spring of 1898, most of whom  came to Vancouver to outfit. Much trade with  the North also followed that excitement, and as  Vancouver received a corresponding benefit.  Second in noticeabUity, but more lasting in  its influence, was the steady expansion of the  three mid-west provinces of Canada, and the  growth of population there.' The timberless  praries began to draw heavily on the lumber  mills of British Columbia, and that trade was, and  is, a great factor in the industrial life of Vancouver. The developing of the lumbering industry was united with a very strong movement in  timber, which has kept up and has been as important a contributing factor to the development  of Vancouver as the rise in realty values. As a  matter of fact it is hard to count the full measure  of the influence of the traffic in British Columbia  timber on the realty market in Vancouver. Millions of dollars have been paid over in Vancouver  to the first holders of timber areas, and these  millions have been in turn invested directly in  Vancouver real estate. Many of the large blocks  in the city have been built by men who made  much of their money in trading in timber.  As mentioned before, Vancouver City, originally comprised some 5,000 acres���������5,311 to be exact- A very few years ago a block of land known  as D. L. 301, was added, comprising 386 acres.  Hastings Townsite, on the east border of the city  proper, was also transferred .from the original  owners, the Provincial Government. The area  of this block is about 3,000 acres, so that today the  City of Vancouver.is in extent only about 8,750  acres, not a very large acreage for a metropolis.  What has led to some anomalies in the growth  of the City of Vancouver has been the springing  up of populus suburban settlements in the districts outlying from the city proper. Almost the  entire area of Burrard Peninsula, extending from  Burrard Inlet, or Vancouver harbor, on the north,  to the North Arm of thie Fraser river,,on the  south, and;'from the boundary of the City of  New Westminster, westerly to the Gulf of  Georgia, has developed a surbuban population���������  in some parts pretty closely settled    together.  Greater-Vancouver, as it is locally referred to  at times, including Vancouver City proper, the  municipalities of Point Grey, South Vancouver  and Burnaby, is made up of the area described,  and covering, as it does, the entire Burrard Peninsula, presents all the requirements of an ideal  site for a large city���������a large seaport���������a large  manufacturing centre, and last but not least, a  most attractive home city, and a centre to which  the beauties of nature will also attract a very  considerable volume of world tourist travel.  It is to be noted that as the population of Vancouver city and its environs has grown, and the  districts have developed/ there haa been a co-ordinate growth of the City of New Westminster  on the banks of the Fraser, just east of the area  of Greater^Vancouver. V On the north shore of the  Burrard Inlet, too, there has been the same sort  of growth^ There are located thef Citiy of North  Vancouver.-and the districts of North and West  Vancouver,! The population of these three com-  nnmities is "ii Similar Position to that of the districts immediately adjoining the City of Vancouver,- in that many of the people are directly  dependent upon Vancouver for a means of livelihood. In other words the City is the centre of  commerce, finance and industry, and the other  portions are in the nature of suburban areas, so  that one may.-find no fault-with the proposal to  include all and the people of each part in the^ era-  bracing term Greater Vancouver. V  An interesting feature oif the growth of values  in Vancouver, and especially in the central or  business iportions of the city, is the very large  number of buildings of the first-class, which have  been constructed within the last decade. Ten  years ago the first sky scraper, so-called, was  built in the down town section of the city. Land  and all, the value was then placed at less than a  million dollars. Today there ar������ dozens of buildings of equal? if not greater value, and each year  sees more of the same class of structure going up.  No cityvizTthtf Wbrid"^  rapid construction of splendid modern blocks.  It has been said that one cause, other than the  demand for such accommodation as modem office  buildings afford, which has led to so many buildings being erected in such a short space of time  is the fact that there is no tax on improvements  in the city, the rates being levied solely on land  values. From some seventeen years ago, there  was an exemption of 25 per cent, of the assessed  value of buildings or other improvements. Later  the exemption on improvements was increased to  50 per cent. Three years ago a strong movement  was made to wipe out the tax on improvements  entirely. Since that time the exemption of buildings has been complete. Vancouver's experience  in this regard,has been emulated in Victoria, in  Calgary, Edmonton and other Western cities,  and a great deal of attention has been paid to a  study of the conditions surrounding and created  by the movement, which in some quarters is  looked upon as somewhat radical. ..  A mighty factor not to be overlooked in any  study, however cursory, of the realty situation in  Vancouver is that of residential property, a very  large percentage is owned by the people who occupy it. Aside from apartment houses, the residences of Vancouver are for the most part owned  by the citizens..  Not to leave the question of permanence of in:  vestment values in Vancouver entirely to what  might be called local opinion, and as such, liable  to be somewhat biased, it is in order to quote  some influential men who have looked over the  city with the eye of vision. James J. Hill, the  veteran Great Northern Railway founder, who  has backed his opinion with investment of millions of dollars in terminals for his road in Vancouver, said on one occasion:  "Vancouver would be a great city even if she  had not this magnificent harbor; but this, taken in  conjunction Vwith other advantages, assures for  her the pricipal place among British seaports on  the Pacific coast. And this is a position of great  importance so long as 'Britania Rules ' the  Waves.5 "  President Earling, of the Milwaukee, said:  "Vancouver is to the Pacific coast what New  York is to the Atlantic, and I am willing to risk  (Continued on Page 7)  Phone Seymour 943  i  Davies & Sanders  General Contractors  55-66 DAVIS CHAMBERS  615 HASTINGS ST.

Do Not Feed, Too Soon.���������When  the chick is hatched it has a sufficient  supply of nourishment in the yolk  of'the egg to last it, for several days.  What the chick requires for the first  few days is not feed but warmth and  rest.  A Little Sand or Grit First.���������When  the chicks are removed to their  brooding quarters there should be  some coarse sand or fine chick grit  scattered where they can have free  access to it. They should then be  left until they show positive signs of  hunger, which would be between the  second and third day after hatching.  They may then be given some bread  crumbs that have been very slightly  moistened with milk; this may be  scattered on clean sand or chick grit.  If being brooded by a hen she will  see that no food is allowed to lie  around,'but if in a brooder that part  of the food that the chicks do not  pick up in a few minutes should be  removed as nothing in feeding causes  so much trouble as ������ leaving food of  that nature around until it is sour.  Feed for the First 10 or 12 Days.���������  The following daily ration of five  feeds given about two and a half  hours apart and continued from the  time the chicks are two to three days  out of the shell until 10 or 12 days  of age may be altered or adopted to  suit conditions:  First Feed.���������Dry bread crumbs  slightly moistened with milk:  Second Feed.���������Finely cracked  mixed grains ;or commercial chick  feed.  Third Feed.���������Rolled oats.  Fourth Feed.���������Dry bread crumbs  moistened with milk.  Fifth Feed'���������Finely cracked mixed  grains.  In addition to the above give the  chicks daily a little green food such  as grass, letuce, sprouted oats, etc.  Do not have the moistened bread  sloppy, but in a crumbly state, and  during this period let the chicks onto  fresh soil or grass every day if possible.  Feed After 10 or 12 Days.���������After  the chicks are ten days to two weeks  old, coarser foods may be allowed.  The infertile eggs may be boiled and  mixed with the mash food and the  bread and milk discontinued. > Hoppers in which is put cracked grains  and dry mash or rolled oats may be  placed where the chicks can have free  access to them. As soon as they become accustomed to the hoppers all  hand feeding except the mash may be  discontinued. If the chicks are on  r.ange it will be found that after a  time they will get careless about coming when called, at which time the  mash may be dropped and dependence placed entirely on the hopper  feeding.  Place grit and water .also a dish of  sour milk if possible where the chicks  will have free access to them. Nothing provides animal.food in better  form than does milk, the chicks like  it, and thrive on it.  ���������jHi.,M"M"M^rH"M'l������irM"IM^^^  *  ::  SNAP rOR CASH  OR ON TERMS  Four Good Lots at  White Rock, B.

Sir Thos.Lipton presents in sport the same  gameness and sticktoativene_s that has won him  his high honors in the business and social world.  . His renewed effort to lift the cup from its present  holders will be watched this fall with the keenest interest all; over the civilized world, and  yatchsmen everywhere are on the "qui vive" for  the triumphs of the new, model.  Shamrock IV., the new challenger, built by  Mr. Charles Nicholson, presents several features  that call for comment.  First of all, the mast, 120 feet in length, is  built of innumerable pieces of fne silver spruce,  so carefully jointed that only close, examination  can detect the system whereon it is built. The  mast is hollow, wonderfully light' and strong, and  most expensive.  The long bare stick, standing 113 feet above  the deck, cost about $3,000, and as the possibility  of losing the spar ia a breeze is always a factor in  yatch racing, a duplicate mast has been prepared  from which it will be seen that racing for the  "   America cup is not a sport for paupers.  The yacht proper has been termed a,monstrosity, but after all this is measurably true of all cup  racers on this side, and if British builders are  ever W lift the cup it will be by building with a  single eye to,speed, as the American builders of  cup defenders have constantly done.  The yacht's length is 75 feet on' the water-  line when upright, but the long, heavy counter  and the pudding ended bow gives her an extra-  , dinary sailing length the moment the wind pressure heels her, thus assuring great stability, and  enabling her to carry an enormous cloud of canvas.  To cope with the great hoist of sail the rig-*  ging is taken outboard. Two huge out-riggers  ' stand out on either side, perhaps 3 feet or a little  less, to take the end of the shrouds at.the deck.  Tho bowsprit is only a stump, as the racer carries  but one head sail, an innovation for the great  racers, at least.  Hitherto the British builders have been un-  ' willing to depart from the yachting type they had  evolved with such success,, as to-speed, comfort  and beauty. This year Nicholson has cast tradition aside,-and gone in~for speed. The yachtings  world awaits the result with strong hopes that a  victory for the Shamrock XV will add new zest to  the great International Cup Bade.  London, June 15.���������"Saturday's sailing of the  Shamrock TV. was a hard weather trial and revealed what everybody- wanted to know, namely:  That the challenger for. the America's cup can  carry her gear and carry it with ease.  The international class boats were racing  off South Sea and while I watched one was dismasted and another disabled; yet Sir Thomas  Lipton's boat seemed quiet atnd quite at home.  Nothing snapped, and nothing parted. The test  was severe and the result eminently gratifying to  all concerned. The lesson was the strength of the  Shamrock's mast���������a truly wonderful stick, strong  and suple as surely no other mast has been.  "The single headsail rig certainly possesses  marvellous windward working qualities. It is only  when off the wind that it lacks efficiency, and  Mr. Nicholson, the designer, has a troublesome  problem to solve whether to retain it for its good  qualities or discard it after its shortcomings. But  I am inclined to think the challenger will race  with two headsails." V  After another trial today the Shamrock IV.  will be hauled out for "experimental alterations���������  the taking away of some of the lead from her keel  and the adding of more sail.  DOMINION SURVEY WORK IN WEST  }'���������  Mr. G. J. Lonergan of Buckingham, Que.,  inspector of Dominion government survey parties,'  is at the Hotel St. Regis. He stated yesterday  that there were seven survey parties out between  here and the Hudson Bayv He is in charge of the  Dominion surveys from the Yukon and British  Columbia right through to Hudson Bay. The  parties in this province are at work in Coqu-  halla Valley at North Bend, north of Sperices'  bridge, north of Kamloops, east of Enderby,  south of Golden and at Banff. Eight surveyors  are in the Yukon.  Mr. Lonergan stated that he would visit the  Yukon next summer, but this year he will work  east from here, visiting all the parties in the field  and checking up their work.  TEMM  ERANGE  A few weeks ago intoxicating liquors were  banished from the United States navy. Officers  and men were all put on the water wagon by an  edict Issued by Secretary Daniels. Our senior  evening contemporary was unkind enough to  comment rather forcibly on the Pecksniff at  Washington. But as.a matter of fact, the old  time "Dutch courage" on which our sailors used  jbo depend for vim and go in time of battle is no  longer fashionable. The modern battleship is  one of the most intricate and delicate machines  handled by men and requires clear brains, steady  nerves and the quickest and soundest of judgment at all times and especially in the hour of  battle. The strictest sobriety is now demanded in  the British navy, 20,000 men and officers being  pledged abstainers. The U. Si has made total  abstinence, whilst on board ship, compulsory for  both officers and men. Last week the Norwegian  navy followed suit, and now we have the following article from William III. pf Germany:  THE KAISER ON DRINKING  Friday, Jane 19.1914  THE REAL MEXICO  . An Address of the German Emperor, William H,  to the Naval Cadets���������-Translated from "Die  EnthjJsamkeit''���������Published in Hamburg, Germany.  "One more short admonition I will give you  before you gp, a question with regard to my people which lies close to my heart. It is the question of alcohol and of drinking.  "I know very well that drinking for pleasure  is an old inheritance of the Germans. We must,  however, in this respect, by continual self-discipline, free' ourselves from this evil.  "I can assure you- that during my reign of  tWenty-two years I have had the experience that  nine-tenths of the crimes which have been brought  before me for sentence can be traced to alcohol.  In former times it was considered a mark of ability, and even genius, if a young man could drink  large quantities of liquor without any visible evil  effects. I, as a young officer, have had the opportunity to see examples of that without taking  part in the experiment myself. Those are the  views of former times, whieh are suitable for the  period of the 'Thirty Years "War,' but they are  no longer adapted to the. present age.  "Quite apart from the results which I need  not describe to you further, I would like to draw  your attention to a point of the first importance?  for your future calling in life. As you yourself  will observe during the course of your service, on  board, the service in my navy exacts a discipline  v the severity of which cannot be surpassed anywhere.  "The question for you is to be able to endure  this severe discipline in times of peace without  exhaustion, in order to be in first-class condition  in times of necessity.  The next war, and the next  naval battle, demand of you sound nerves.   They  will decide the victory now.   The health of the'  .nervous system is jeopardized in youth.and in  later years ruined by the consumption of alcohol.  You will have the opportunity, later to see the,  training ships and the working of modern artillery on ships, and froni that you will be able to  form an idea of tbe conditions in a naval battle.  You, while on them, will see many scenes of terrible slaughter.   The decisive test will be firm  nerves and cool head.   That nation which consumes the least alcohol, that nation wins:   And,  gentlemen, you are to be that nation! You are to  be an example to the military.and naval forces.  With humanity example, is more effective than  precept., Consequently, without curtailing your  camaraderie, I expect of you, while attending the  naval school, or while on board the training ship,  to note that the consumption of alcohol does not;  belong to your privileges, and to take steps among  yourselves to enforce this regulation.   There is  being organized in my navy, or already organized,-  the Good Templar Lodges and the 'Blue Cross  Society.'   Several officers ands:several hundred  men have joined.- I hope you will do all in your  power to-induce the-men in-the-naval service to���������  join.   I need only to point to the excellent ex-'  ample of the English navy, of which 20,000. men  and officers have already joined.   It is a question  of the future of our navy and of our people.   If"  you educate men in service to refrain from alcohol I will have healthy and intelligent subjects.  "This is the great question of the future.   If;,  you, however, stand for the principles of intemperance, my people will be morally preserved.  That is a work in which I entreat you to share."  GLADSTONE HOTEL LICENSE REVOKED  By a majority,vote of the Board of License  Commissioners this week, the license of the  Gladstone Inn on Kingsway was revoked. Commissioners McBride and Winran and Reeve Kerr  voted for the cancellation, while Commissioners  Thomas and McArthur thought the board could  not refuse the granting of the license except in  cases where the holder has been convicted of the  infraction of the law or where specific charges of  misconduct were proved before the license commissioners.  Reeve Kerr gave the casting vote which decided that the license should be cancelled on July  15. He pointed out that an appeal would in ail  probability be taken to the courts.  NORWAY'S ARMY AND NAVY DRY  Christiania, Norway.���������-The Norwegian' Parliament have adopted a resolution prohibiting the  consumption of intoxicating liquors by officers  of the Norwegian army and navy during their  terms of service.  The enlisted men were already enforced abstainers, and the officers' messes_on the.warships  and in the garrisons are-now to be made "dry."  SURREY WITHOUT DEBT  Statement of Municipal Assessor Shows an Assessment of $6,100,000 and No Indebtedness.    .  New Westminster/June 16.���������Figures,submitted by the deputy assessor of Surrey at the last  meeting of the council show that that municipality has a total assessment of $6,100,435.-. Surrey  is in the fortunate position of having no municipal  debt, tax receipts having always provided sufficient money for the carrying on of municipal  business and the improvement of roads.  The Hon. Montgomery Schuyler, an American  diplomat of long service, and who knows Mexico  at first hand, speaks of it in the following terms:  '' Mexico has never had a constitutional government in the whole, course of her turbulent and disorderly career as a separate nation. .Men who do  not know Mexico talk of the return of 'normal  conditions,' but the conditions now prevailing  there are merely an intensification of ordinary  conditions, the only real abnormal years having  been those when that powerful dictator,- Porfirio  Diaz enforced an outward calm; t     ,  " Mexico was colonized by i V cates, criminals  and adventurers eager to; makei a speedy fortune  in the mines or by Indian slavery. They brought  no women with them, and95 per cent, of the present Mexican population is made up of mixed  negro, Indian and buccaneer Mood. Elections are  farces, not three voters in a hundred going to  the polls;, and rarely is any one so bold or so  anxious to invite trouble as to oppose the officials  candidates.  . "The Mexican will fight like a wildcat when  he s cornered, for he looks for nothing short of  torture and death if he surrenders. He may be  forced into the army or hired to enlist, but he  never fights for an ideal, a principle, or a cause.  The bandits who compose the so-called Constitutional forces have taken scores of villages of  from 500 to 5,000 inhabitants, the first act of the  raiders being to carry off the young girls from  their homes. Yet there is no case on record where  a Mexican has been killed in defense of his sister,  his daughter, or his wife.  "That is the Mexico of today, wholly unfitted  for self-government. A wise and humane dictator  ruling with a hand of iron is what the country  needs; and it is quite as absurd to demand that  the Mexicans establish or respect a constitutional  government like our own as to expect it of a pack  of Eskimo dogs." w .'."'������������������  Mexico is volcanic in soil as well as in national  character; it consists in many places of volcanic  and sedimental sands and ashes of great depth.  The land is in general sparingly watered and  labors under the almost total want of navigable  rivers, reaching he interior. The lakes of the  country are. numerous, but unimportant. The  mineral wealth of Mexico is prodigious, and its  silver and gold mines have been worked with  varying degrees of energy. There'are in the land  some 2,500 distilleries and 800 tobacco factories.  UP TO DATE HEALTH TALKS  Activity Is Life���������Activity Is Death  The above expression which is so true in every  walk of life is not meant to convey the impression  that walking, house work or any other stated  form of movement which uses a limited number  of muscles is intended, but rather-that a wider  aspect be applied. Nearly every one is'inclined  to consider that the term 'Muscle', applies to  those which show jexternalljy,, quite 'forgetting  that all the organs of the body - are delicate  bundles of muscle as well, and that if these are  !< neglected the ienvitable result is a weakening  of the organ, no matter how well developed the  muscles are externally. The weakest organ is the  weakest link in the chain, and unable to perform  its functions properly gradually wastes away and  also alows the. waste matter to accumulate in the  body to clog it more and more.  -  There is nothing the average woman dreads  more than the advance of old age. It is especially repugnant to the fashionable woman, who  sees in it the loss of those things she holds most  dear���������her good looks. Carefully she scans her  mirror and watches for every grey hair, every  stray wrinkle that, will proclaim to the world that  she is growing old. She scans.the advertising  matter in the papers and magazines in search of  "youth renewers" to help hetr against her arch  enemy���������Father' Time. However, there are many  women of great beauty who have retained their  youthful appearance to _an advanced ago, bui it  is through dSfferent means than those sooftenVem-  ployed by the butterflies of society. Ellen Terry,  famed so many years for her beauty and histrionic  ability, tind who is now called 66 years young,  has recently set out upon an extensive tour of  New Zealand and Australia. She is one of the  women who believes that life is prolonged and  youth renewed bw activity.  Next week the writer will deal with the various forms of activity and their meaning.  HOME INDUSTRIES  The number of statements made recently in  connection with the contract for the Narrows  bridge shows that the people of the Province are  hot aware what industries are in B. C, nor what  goods are made in B. C.  The letting of the contract for the Narrows  bridge to local contractors will show what the  structural steel and engineering works can do,  and the Manufacturers' Association, together  with the various Ladies' Clubs in town, have arranged a display of goods "Made in B C." on a  large scale for a week from the 22nd to the 27th  inst;, to show what other banufacturers there are.  JSpencer's, Limited, have donated the 3rd floor  of their building to the Manufacturers and are  erecting very attractive booths, in which will be  displayed nothing but " Made in B. C." goods.  The Society Ladies and Ladies' Clubs, as  mentioned, having the interests of the Province  at heart, and realizing the necessity of educating  the public to patronize home industries if this  town and province have to grow^-have offered  their services as sales ladies during that week,  and every member of the community should make  it his or her duty to attend this display in  Spencer's; see what goods are made and insist oh  local storekeepers stocking B. C. material.  Every dollar spent in this province means work  for either a man or woman for a certain period of  a day and no matter what business the men of  the province axe engaged in, some portion of this  dollar comes back to them. It is-well to remember that by buying B. C. goods you are helping  yourselves and at the same time helping to increase the prosperity of the province.  The more patronage given to local factories,  the greater the inducement for outside capital  to establish new factories. 1  1915 SESSION OF DRY  FARMING CONGRESS  There will be keen competition, apparently,  for the honor of entertaining the 1915 sessions  of the International Dry Farming Congress and    ''���������  accompanying Soil Products Exposition.  There will be a determined effort to take this  event to the coast Dmitry for next year', in view  of vthe twojbig expositions there, the Panama- "  Pacific Expositions at San Francisco and San  Diego.  Oakland and San Diego are in the running  for the congress. '  Oakland is making a strong bid for conventions and gatherings next year, on the theory  that it is the gateway to the San Francisco Exposition, and because of its admirable facilities  for taking care of such gatherings. The Chamber of Commerce is going after the Dry Farming  Congress, and has made its wants known in no  uncertain manner, thus early.  San Diego, through its Chamber of Commerce,  is also active, and will continue to be, it appears  certain. San Diego has a .strong commercial or- t  ganization, and wants, because of its. big exposition, all the big public gatherings it can assemble.  San Diego is also the home of Charles Cristadoro,  historian of the Dry Farming, Congress, and one  bf its fathers, and he and his associates who  have been doing so much in agricultural development, want the congress sesions.  Pueblo, Colorado, is no mean competitor, too.  That city learned some years ago, when it took  care of the National Irrigation Congress and Exposition, the value of a year's work on the part  of a great development agency to the city, and /J  also the opportunity and responsibility, Pueblo is, therefore, not new at the game, and will  make a competitive force in this rivalry for 1915,  -which other towns should not overlook.

M-  Man y Skyscrapers in  Modern Metropolis  (Continued from Page 5)  In all fairness, when counting the total of  buildings erected in the city within tbe past ten  years, the millions spent in building up Shaugh-  nessy Heights should be counted. The transformation of this area is second only in rapidity  and extent to that of the upbuilding of the modern off ice and business buildings in th* centre of  the city. What is true of Shaughnessy H eights and  Point Grey in general is equally true of South  Vancouver, and partly true of Burnal-y. These  two districts, as well as a portion of North Vancouver, are peopled by those whose interests lie  wholly in the city. If not actually in business in  Vancouver, the people of South Vancouver and  Burnaby, and many of those of North Vancouver,  are employed in the city. Their homes have been  built outside its boundaries, but in all fairness  the total of this building expansion,, which is  very large, as it has kept pace with the rapid  expansion of the city proper, should be counted  in, too- Were these records thus added to that  of Vancouver City, the total of buildings erected  in Greater Vancouver in the past decade would  exceed the sum of one hundred million dollars.  Vancouver's growth in building is. keeping  pace withrthe city's expansion in other ways, and  that despite the: world-wide business depression,  .which Vancouver has shared in common: with  every city on the continent. A glance at the construction progress and in contemplation at the  present moment serves to impress the solid steady  growth of the city. ���������   '  At the present moment there are under construction, or partly completed, buildings of large  dimensions, most of them of steel construction  ty_>e, reaching a total of close to $8,000,000. This,  in a time when everything in business the world  over, is said to have been almost at a standstill,  has a most re-assuring air. Yet not one in ten  in the City of Vancouver itself, to say nothing of  the outside world, realizes the fact, or realizes its  importance as indicating the faith in tbe stabilitv  of the ctiy and of its realty values, which is evidenced by such investments. Very surely the  pessimist is i_ot of the "Builders of Vancouver."

Pa&t Decade in Building Up Vancouver to Position Rivalling Any  City on American Continent,  I ^iflFTEEN years ago there were fences on  [ mm the Hastings street frontage of many  [*������P' a lot which now carries an imposing  skyscraper. Ten years ago on Pender  [street there was more than one prominent  [corner similarly guarded. In one or two in-  Istances the precaution was necessary because  [excavations had been-made presumably for base-  [ments, but nothing further had been done to im-  f prove the properties. Many a lot which had  .either fence nor excavation was standing vacant  . idle on these two thoroughfares. The same  ras true of Granville street, on the west side,  from Hastings street, south.  Seventeen years ago the Williams building at  the southwest corner of Hastings and Granville  greets was erected, and if was looked on as a  rery pretentious addition to the businesss blocks  the city. The Bank of B. N.

Rapid as was the growth of Vancouver, both  in business and residential building for the period  just referred to, the expansion was trifling compared to what has followed. In the ten years up  to the beginning of 1914, there have been -issued  by the City Building Inspector, permits totalling  very close to the enormous sum of ninety millions  of dollars. ' "  Much of''this stupendous total of capital invested in building has been placed in the past six  years. In the year 1907, the total of building permits issued in one year, for the first time exceeded $5,000,000 in value. Since then the total  of building permits has doubled, trebled, and in  1912 almost quadrupled that of 1907. How such  a remarkably large amount of money has been invested may be gathered from the one fact that of  the many sky-scrapers constructed in the central  business- section of Vancouver in the past six  years, some forty of them reach in the aggregate  cost! the sum of approximately $20,000,000.

INTERNATIONAL DRY FARMING CONGRESS  A notable group of world agriculturist*, is now not only in active correspondence with the .offices of the  International Dry Farming Congress  and Soil Products Exposition, Wichita, October 7-17, relative to plans,  information, exhibits, etc., but as'to  actual attendance at the coming sessions.  One of the most conspicuous of  this group is Paul de Vuyst, director-  general of agriculture of Belgium.  From his capitol, Brussels, Minister  de Vuyst is directing the movements  of a party, largely from Belgium, but  including several from other countries, which will make this year a  tour of the United States, including  a trip to Wichita to the International Dry Farming Congress. .There  are several agricultural events of one  kind and another which the party will  attend, but the greatest of all wilt be  the Wichta event in October. There  will also be trips to agricultural colleges and other scientific research  points.  Dr. J. L. Young, Chinese agricul-  South America.

MICHAEL'S CHURCH  Broadway and Prlnco Bdward St  is  ; in the retail business section of Vancouver,  hi Water street there were the Hudson's Bay  Company*s wholesale warehouse and one or two  Others of fairly substantial character.   Such is a  Jrief summary of the extent to which building  [ad advanced at the time mentioned.   When the  [olson's Bank building and the Flack block were  lilt, some fifteen years ago, Vancouverites began  "point with pride" to the handsome buildings  rhich graced the city. . And for _ a number of  .ears  the buildings mentioned continued to be the  .ading structures in point of size, appearance  Ind cost of construction.   In the interval many  ������aps had been closed up in the frontage on both  ides of Hastings and Granville streets, from the  ferner of Georgia and Granville down to the corner of Abbott and Hastings-  During the five year period following the  i^ear 1898, the building up of the residential west  of the city began and continued with steadily  lcreasing rapidity for ten years, or until the era  apartment house construction arrived.   Many  landsome homes were built in that period in the  jortion of the city overloking English Bay, and  idjacent to Stanley Park.    In Mount Pleasant  id Fairview, too, large numbers of residences  e erected, and as population came to the city,  e two wards, as well as the west end, became  fairly well built up. Streets which had been  ittle more than roadways���������in some cases, not  i that���������were cleared and graded, macadam-  zed, and had sidewalks constructed, while homes  .prung up on each side for blocks in length.  most marked manner, and1 the number of  these modern monolithic structures assembled in siich a few years within the area of a  very few blocks in the central portion of the  city, is a record not outdone in any other  city of three or four times its size on the continent, if; indeed, it has been equalled by any city  in the same period of time.  Wholesale District Built Up.  While the uptown business section of Vancouver has been undergoing such marvellous development, the wholesale area has had equally  surprising changes. The Water street wholesale  district, adjacent to the C- P. R. depot tracks,  and to the harbor front was but a very modest  section ten years ago. It has been built up and  enlarged steadily, until the space, has been fully  occupied and many massive warehouses with capacity for huge stocks of merchandise have been  constructed.  j. A little over four years ago the demand for  more warehouse space became so insistent that the  C. P. R. reserve adjoining the shops and yards at  the foot of Hamilton street, and extending from  Cambie street bridge west to Richards street,  was thrown open for building. In the short period which has elapsed, there have been erected  whole streets of modern warehouses of the most  massive reinforced concrete construction. This  -area is still expanding, and as trackage facilities  have been provided to every part of it, the new  wholesale quarter is destined to be much larger  even than it is at present.

THE WATeR-WOBlWP  UNDERWRITERS  104   Carter-Cotton  Building  Vancouver, British Columbia  *  very close to the centre of retail business of the  city, and that it is easily accessible from a number of the carline streets, is an advantage which  is making itself felt.  While wholesale, retail and residental districts have become defined and have built up very  constantly, and are continuing to do so, the selective forces at worfc in the development of the  city have had their influence in establishing  many industries along the waterfront of False  Creek, on both north and south sides, and also  on the trackage adjacent to the harbor front in  the east end of the city. In this latter section the  values of waterfront property have so advanced  that the ordinary industry has to be content with  trackage only. On the False Creek frontage,  however, there is much property yet to be had at  moderate prices, and the Canadian Pacific Railway also owns quite a frontage which is leased at  reasonable rentals, and on practically long terras,  to industries. With the improving of the channel  of False Creek up to Main street from English  Bay, which is now being done, and with the reclamation of the entire bed of the eastern portion  of False Creek, by the Great Northern and the  Canadian Northern Railways, the tendency of industries is to gravitate to the east end, as rail  facilities increase.  Supplying Materials for Construction. ,  When such a vast amount of building has  been going on in Vancouver in the decade just  completed, it is to be expected that many firms  have established themselves in the building supply  trades- Every facility has been at the hand of  builders, for all classes of structure, from the  modest cottage to the sixten-storey sky-scraper.  There are three or four steel plants capable  of fabricating the steel frame of the largest type  of sky-scraper. As a matter of fact these local  concerns have developed in response to the demand for such service. These steel works are  equipped with the most complete modern machinery for the heavy work, and the concerns  each undertake the work of erecting the steel  frame, if called upon. Nearly every one of the  large blocks erected in recent years is a monument to the skillful work of one or other of the  steel companies.  By steamer from the manufacturing centres  of the old world, and by rail from the east and  from the United States, the builders' supply dealers have assembled stocks of everything of the  best to meet the demands of the building trades.  Lumber from British Columbia's magnificent fir  _nd cedar, of course enters largely into the construction of all houses, and in many of the smaller  business buildings, though wood of any sort is  almost entirely absent in the steel and concrete  Terra cotta, for exterior finishing; also some  sorts of pressed brick, other than those manufactured in British Columbia, are imported.   All  structural steel is brought in by steamer from  the Old Country, and plumbing materials, fittings, builders' hardware, electrical fixtures, etc.,  are stocked by the large dealers here. There ia  growing up a local industry in many of these  lines, indicating that one day the major portion  of such supplies will be manufactured in Vancouver. Whether "Made-in-B-C" or imported,  the enterprise of the different firms engaged in  supplying the building trades has kept pace with  the growth of Jbe city, rapid as that has been_f_or__  the past decade.  Keeping in mind the unique conditions under  which the city has been built up in such a short  space of time, it is a matter df some surprise that  almost entirely has the architectural designing'  and details of the buildings of the city been entrusted to local firms of architects. With the exception of some of those buildings of public or  semi-public type, the demands of the building  world have been met exclusively by local talent. -  And the many imposing structures of every class,  from hunglow, mansion, business block, whether  retail merchants or office building, to skyscraper and big industrial plant, bear eloquent  witness of the rare quality of architectural talent  centering in Vancouver. There are many firms  of architects whose work is worthy a place beside  the best in the world.  A testimony to the local architects is found in  the award to a rising young firm of Vancouver  architects of tbe entire buildings for the Provincial University to be copstructed in Point  Grey. This work is to be begun during the present year. In the design and construction of most  of her public buildings Vancouver has been most  fortunate. All the modern schools have been given  distinctive features, besides haying been built of  the most advanced type of permanent structure.  The massive and magnificent pile of the Vancouver General Hospital is in keeping with the  class of the city school buildings. Church architecture, too, has received very close attention,  and there are many examples in all parts of the  city of the best in that line.  One or two points, important, and interesting)  too, in connection with the building of Vancouver���������and the buildings of Vancouver���������are  well worth noting, at the risk of tiring the reader.  One is that Vancouver is essentially a city of  homes. In all the smaller houses, usual in so  many cities, to be classed as purely tenement  structures, the element of the personal interest of  the small owner is very marked- This feature  has followed closely upon the desire of the average citizen of Vancouver to remain here permanently. The desire has found expresf'ort in the  strong effort to build or purchase a home, and  to continue to own it. That feature alone has  had a strong influence in the building of the  homes of Vancouver.  -)  i\  .'31  -.���������������  ���������H  ', '���������!';  t"  ���������������������������'���������I-/  ���������������������������&  '"-I.  -.���������- I.:  '.-1 = PHJS  ViKSTKK.X   t ^Li-  Friday, June 19,1914  .;.

A Final Problem.  It Is doubtful whether in all Egypt  there was ever such another period ot  Joyous thankBgiviog as that which followed tbe bringing bf Cameron to the  little hotel in Port Said. 1 am inclined to question, too, whether In the  space of a single waking day four persons ever talked more, or with more  mutual interest, than did the four of  us there gathered. The heat, tlie flta,  the poor food, and the miserable.ac-  comofottoQs, generally, were not  merely gladly tolerated, but absolutely  disregarded. In tbe exuberance of our  rejoicing, annoyances which had  loomed large on the orecedlng day  dwindled to tbe tmperciivable; end  from early morning until late night experiences were exchange^ adventure*  told and speculations indulged in-  Washed, scrubbed, shaved, shorn  and clad in raiment put at hlB disposal  by the indefatigable Hartley, Cameron  appeared wonderfully well-looking.; Indeed 1 was amazed by bis appearance  ���������nd by his condition.

Addison at bis left, and I opposite  him, "1 suppose I did suffer, whenever  J was conscious, which, fortunately, I  think, was    comparatively    seldom-  They dosed me almost continuously  with what I believe.to".have been some  attribute of opium, so that even in my  waking moments I was not wholly normal.  In this way, of course, I lost all  count of time.  And so, too, I am unable to give events in sequence.   My  first conscious moment after being on  the deck of the. Sibylla found   me  strapped in a narrow berth on a rapid,  but rather rough-riding craft of apparently much ' smaller dimension than  the yacht, and with a Chinese boy sitting beBide me.   You can fancy my  startled amazement at   the   sudden  transition.   In vain I asked questions.  In vain I struggled to rise.   Then I  shouted, and the Chinese boy lighted  what appeared to be an ordinary Joss-  stick on a stand at the head of my  berth, and withdrew from   the   tiny  cabin.   Insensibility followed quickly.  After that I,have a vague, dreamy  recollection of eating something with  a strange, spicy flavor, which seemed  only to add to my stupor.    Once I  dreamed���������at least I think It must have  been a dream���������that I was in a dark  box, so cramped that my bones ached,  and that far away above me were little hol_s through which    the   light  came in luminous fan-like rays that  glowed against the black." ,:  "I'm inclined to think It was no  dream," I put in, recalling; the newspaper story I had read in my broker's  office, In Wall street "The probabilities are that you were shipped in  that box from Fall River to New York,  and a certain Influential Chinaman,  called Yup Sing, knew all about it"  "It's quite possible," Cameron went  on. *'I know that Jt was very.difficult  to distinguish, in those days, between  dreams and realities. Eventually, however, I awoke to find myself on the  Glamorganshire, quartered with the  men in the forecastle, a beard well  grown and my clothes the coarsest  sort of mariner's outfit For a while  I was far too ill for labor.

But, gradually, I came  about, and was set to work with- paint  pot and brush. Tho humanity shown  me at this time was surprising. I  couldn't comprehend it. But I realised  eventually that my strength was being  fostered for future torment."     .  "Why didn't you explain, dear, to  the captain?" Bvelyn asked, with one,  of those bursts of naivette tbat contrasted so charmingly with her usual*,  ly abounding good Judgment.  Cameron smiled. "I couldn't getj  near the captain, my child," he returned, indulgently. "It wasnt be-i  cause I didn't try. The officers ridl-i  culed my assertions as pipe dreams,!  and when, at each port, I pleaded to  be allowed to communicate with our  consul, I was only kept under stricter;  guard."  V  And so his story continued, later,  rnpted at Intervals by questions front  one or another of us, until we had the  whole wretched tale of cruelty, In*  eluding the final chapter which pre*  ceded the rescue.  When he learned that every stoker  and trimmer, save himself, had been  ordered on deck, still hoping against  hope that the outside world had at1  length been moved to Intercession in  his behalf, he demanded to be allowed  to go with the rest. And when his demand was refused he rebelled, fighting his way to liberty with an iron,  bar from a cinder-tub, which he had,  purposely concealed for such emergency.  I have no Inclination to test patience  by detailing all the events and record*  ing all the dialogue of that happy day.  Much that happened and much that  was said I must leave tp the Imagination of those that read. But I cannot  refrain from tbe statement that Cameron's meeting and reconciliation with  his old friend Dr. Addison was one,  of the brightest spots in a delectable  constellation.^ Tbe meeting between  Evelyn and her uncle was an episode/  too, to touch the sensibility of the  most apathetic And if there bad lingered a single doubt as to the wisdom  or expediency of accepting their com*  panlonsbip on my expedition ot rescue  It must bave been dispelled by the  emotional thrill which these scenes  provoked-  Our homeward voyage, which all  of ns were anxious should not be delayed, was by way of Naples. Hartley,  who appeared to be able to go,and  coma as be pleased, accompanied as  that far, and onr farewells to him. on  the deck of tbe Koenlg Albert, were  oomblned with a fervor of gratitude  that exhausted onr powers of expression.  Evelyn begged me to be permitted  to Was <b!m good-bye, bat there I was  foroed to draw tbe lint. Her caresses  fa my own direction bad not, ap to  that momenv. been to lavish tbat I felt  I ootid spare any of tbem, even for  this youns Englishman, notwithstanding my abundant-appreciation of the  laettlmabl- service be bad rendered,  and tbat was precisely what I told Iter,  wbea on the first evening eat, ihe had  demanded to know my reasons for re*  "Tou'-e a very selfish me������,w ihe retorted, with ������ pout. "And rm not at  all rare, now, that I shall ever kiss  yon again. Besides���������" And there she  ���������topped.  We had reached the after end of the  peck in onr post-dinner promenade,  jand bad paused there, leaning on the  rail, to watch * the phosphorescent  Igleam and glitter among the turbulent  white wake-waters. Cameron and Dr.  Addison were talking over their cigars  in ateamer chairs amidships, and tbe  iglrl and I were alone together for the  first time since her uncle's restoration.  "Besides?" I repeated, qoestlonlngly.  The big blue eyes she turned to me  were never more roguish.  "Besides," she said, iow-voioed and  with a Just perceptible quiver, "untr.  you keep your promise, I don't see  that you have any .ght to dictate to  me."  I knew very well what she meant.  Ever since Cameron had come running  backward around that deck-house corner���������I think even at the minute l(I  recognised bis naked, smut-covered  shoulders���������I had had that promise in  ;mind, and had longed for the moment  of its fulfilment But till now not  even the briefest opportunity had  offered. Nevertheless, her present  mood was too entirely winsomely lovable to be neglected, and tbe impulse  to prolong it by teasing too strong for  resistance. .,  "Keep my promise?" I queried, min-  -gllng with assumed perplexity a certain suggestion of injury. "Have I  ever failed you in anything?"  She turned away now, silently, and  the eclipse of the eyes I loved left me  suddenly repentant; still I persisted.  "Have I ever failed you?"-I asked  again.  Quickly her gaze came back, and her  eyes had taken something of the cold,  snapping fire of the phosphorus.  "Since you don't remember," she  said, 'It's of no consequence. Only you  were so sure that you couldn't for-  (To ^e continued.)  We have always on hand a large selection of STAPLE  <*' and FANCY FOODS for POULTRY.

This opinion  [was based on exterior and interior evidence. Oi  ithe former it was safe to predicate that the tem-  [porary exhaustion of the boom in land andUimbe.  uvould cause a diversion of capital into othei  [channels; of the latter it is equally certain that  Ithe increased price of metals and the steady  (growth of the secondary industry which required  Lead and copper as their raw material, would  [stimulate the movement for greater activity.  This anticipation has been fully realized, and  ,>day, with land dull and lumber under a temporary cloud in consequence of the widespread restriction in the building trade, mining is the  'live" industrial interest of the moment.  There are many features of mining calculated  \o inspire the optimist.   First of all, the rehabil-  tation of old mining properties which have been  Inactive for several years, which people have  leclared were worked out, but- which, under the  lfluence and energy of more determined man-  jement and better prices, are demonstrating  lat they still have .an important future before  iem. /  One of the most conspicuous of these is th,.  [istoric Payne mine of Sandon, which was one of  le earliest and richest producers in the Koote  Cy country; indeed, it was the first location ir.  e Slocan. Until lately it has held the record  lor J>eing one of the largest dividend-payers in the  Province. Over $1,500,000 were paid in dividends  the shareholders of the first company; nearly  .4,000,000 in ore was extracted from the No. 1  8i el to' the No. 8 level during the first few years  ii������t the property was operated. The mine made  foi tunes for many in Spokane, Seatle and other  Western cities. About this time, with the first  rich leads apparently exhausted, reorganization  followed; a new and heavily capitalized company  .as* formed; capital was squandered on outside  expenditure instead of underground development,  nth the inevitable result that the company went  smash. Then for two or three years lease-  lolders picked out what ore they could, after  riiich the mine lay idle. Three years ago a new  Company was formed���������now operating as the  ilocan-Payne mine, and only a few days ago the  first fruits of their labours was seen, when, at a  Wance of 3,560 feet from its portal, the long  [ross cut tunnel, which the company has been  Jriving into the Payne Mt. for over two years,  tut a stringer of high grade galena ore, giving  Usays of 146 oz. silver to the ton and 30 per cent,  lead. If the values of the main ore body correspond with the stringer, the Payne will be as big a  line as it was in the old days.  This illustration can be multiplied and, in-  leed, the re-opening of old properties is one of  ������he most marked features of the times. It is only  iecessary to mention the Silver King of Nelson  ind the Cork on the South Fork of JCaslo Creek  \p sho\y how  widely spread is the movement.  feanwhile, those mines which have recently  figured largely among the producers show no  illing off in tonnage and, properties like the  Standard, the Nickel Plate, the Granby, the B. C.  ?opper Company, and many others sustain the  PieputatioU of the Province as dividend payers.  Among the gratifying features of the revivial  if the mining* industry is the great improvement  in therBossland camp^ A few years agoproduc-^  lion on Red Mountain was at a low ebb, but in-r  tyelligent exploitation has revolutionized matters,  and today we have a tonnage little below that o<  the palmiest times, and abandoned "properties like  the Van Roi and Jose niaking considerable ship-  lents and showing good profits.  It would be interesting to ask the question  [how do the ore reserves of the Province hold W  [under this increased development?   In this connection it is gratifying to be able to say that in  respect of reserves the outlook has never been  letter.   The Granby company has demonstrated  12,000,000 tons of ore at Hidden Creek of a gross  ralue of $78,000,000.    The reserve at the com-  my'8 Phoenix mine is estimated at 6,OO0_0OO  ^>ns of a gross value of $15,000,000.   /The British  Columbia Copper Company has 5,000,000 tons of  Reserves of gross value of $26,000,000.   The Ross-  md mines are estimated to have reserves which,  it the present rate of production, will last five  Jears, yielding nearly 1,500,000 tons of an estimated value of $18,000,000.    The Nickel Plate,  |ne of the ;r_ost profitable mines in the Province,  rather behind in its development, but diamond  trilling has demonstrated the existence of 350,000  fons of a gross value of $4,O0O|O0O.   The reserves  the Britannia are placed at 1,500,000 tons;  f'alue $12,000,000.   These are a few of the leading  lines, and do not include reserves at such well-  cnown properties as the Standard, the Slocan  5tar, Rambler-Cariboo, White Water,  Sullivan,  lolly Gibson,  Highland,  the  Silver King and  .thers.   Yet they show a total of $153,000,000.  The potency of these figures is difficult to-  jxaggerate.   They, not only show the existence of  enormous ore bodies, but they show that investors who have been in touch with the mining in-  |dustry, many of them for ten and twenty years,  lave confidence in the future and are now putting their money into the development of properties which have been abandoned for a long time.  lAlmost daily one. reads of the staking of.new  [claims, a branch of mining which has been comparatively neglected for the last ten years, for  [the prospector has unfortunately been only too  [conspicuous by his absence.   Then there is a rap-  [idly increasing roll of improvement certificates  [being issued; in fact, none of the evidences of  jbusy mining are absent.  If there were time it would be easy to enlarge  upon the reason for this revival, and to justify  the conclusions arrived at. It is based on a wide  and rapidly growing demand for the produce of  the mine, and this demand is keeping up prices.  The demand for copper and lead is likely to increase in an even greater ratio than of late.  One of the subjects which is occupying general attention throughout the United States and  Canada is the electrification of railways, which  is in its infancy. Just how this will affect the  copper market is evid need by the fact that the  Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway Company will use 30,000,000 pounds of copper for  this purpose, and it is only a pioneer-  This means that enormous electric power will  be required in the future, which, in my opinion, directly affects coal mining interests in a very important manner, for Bituminous coking coals  will be treated in by-product ovens, thereby producing a reliable coke for the Smelting industry  now in its infancy in B. C, and the Gas by-product can be used for generating very cheap Electric Power. This is such an important question  that it would warrant ;a special article to give it  justice, but a day will come when producer gas  plants will radiate power from the pit mouth of  certain collieries for hundreds of miles, and when  such power is developed,, it will revolutionize industrial conditions. This is a power to be reckoned with when British Columbia decides to treat  its Iron ores.  The demand for lead for paint making is  enormously on the increase, and has never before  approached present requirement. There is all  the difference in the world between copper at 14  cents per pound and copper at 9 cents per pound,  and with the metal firm at the former figure  there is an attractive margin. Lead .at 5 1-4 cents  per pound is equally attratcive, and it is not  surprising that these profitable figures are reflected in the stock market.  Tt has been estimated thht Canada has a total  area of 3,800,000 square miles of which upwards  of 2,000,000 are favorable for finding ore formations of commercial value.  No, one can deny the fact intelligently, that  mining in Canada has been carried out with business ability on the whole, and no other industry  can equal the success and showings.  The annual mineral production for Canada in  1886 was approximately $10,000,000; in 1893,  $20,000,000; in 1900, $64,000,000; in 1907, $86,-  000,000, and in 1913 $144,000,000., These figures  must prove to men of thought that money invested in mining, properly directed, should reap  rich rewards.  I would like to mentipn a word in favor of  the Chamber of Mines "of Vancouver, and request  all parties who are interested in Mining in British Columbia to give their hearty support to this  institute. This Chamber of Mines should be recognized all over the world as an authority in  Vancouver for practical and truthful information,  and the Provincial Government, Board of Trade,  business men and otber societies should all help  in a practical*way to make it a success. If a great  mining industry is developed in B. C���������and B. C.  has the minerals-���������it not alone will give employment to thousands but will in turn create new industries, and create enormous markets for home  produced food stuffs, machinery and hundreds of  .:other goods. .���������: ;.  Properly organized development syndicates, to  develop promising prospects to a certain point  aire required^ and with reasonable development  property at a handsome profit to the syndicate,  forvsuch properties are in demand by ndining  magnates.'/' ' V . '  Altogether investors in British Columbia raining have every reason to anticipate profitable returns, and when one bears in mind that there are  innumerable- discoveries of .ore in : the Northern  sections of the Province which have not yet been  exploited, but which look ���������just as promising to  the prospector as did the findings in the Koot-  enay a quarter oi; a century }������go,. it ;nefids no .  prophet to anticipate the 'establishment 6\\ large  camps near the route of-the G. T. P., ���������which may  vie. in importance with, the-pioneer lode camp of  the Province. The. remarkable discovery and development of Hidden Creek already referred to  may be regarded as the first hostage given by  the new North country to the mining industry,  and the precursor of many to come.  Values o/_ Vancouver  ^ Realty Remain Firm  (Continued from Page 2)  my reputation as a prophet on the prediction that  not six, but ten railroads will have their Western  terminals in this city1 within the next five years.  Our company will have its trains running into  Vancouver withintwo years. We cannot afford  to do without a terminal in this city any longer.  There is no way for a railroad looking for a Pacific Coast terminal to keep from coming here  unless it can afford to. lose money."  With the opinions of such men before them it  is not surprising that the optimistic spirit of Vancouver realty brokers is still dominant. .Eastern  friends are in the habit of pointing to Vancouver  as a "boom town," but today values are on as  firm a basis as in any city of the Dominion. Inflated values are a thing of the past, and bona  fide investors will find as reliable channels for  their money in Greater Vancouver as in Montreal,  Toronto or any Eastern city, with this factor in  favor.of Vancouver, that while Eastern centres  are old-established and settled down to permanent conditions, Vancouver is now only on the  threshold of her magnificent future.
