"558 MAJORITY."  From Our Correspondent at Ottawa  Ottawa. Wa-y 21.  , The Idheral party is badly split .on Canadian Northern deal, frank Oliver and the Prairie  liberal members are opposing the extension of aid to British Columbia. They claim the section  through 9.0. should not have been built. The eastern liberals, led by Pugiley and Macdonald, are  urging that the whole system should be forced into default and liquidation. They would, they say,  risk the disastrous result which tbe government supporters claim would follow such a case, laurier  and Graham are in favor of help of some kind, but fail to show wbat that is to be. The outcome of  tbis confusion of opinion among the opposition is simply to block the progress of the measure. Mr.  Borden and .Arthur Jucighen, the solicitor general, have been able to meet all arguments up to the  present, and at this bite hour, the opposition seem badly confused. It is expected tbe resolution  will pass tbis week, and the bill early next week. ���������9. &  Special Telegram From Oil-Field  . Calgary, May 21.  Manager A. W. Dingman of tbe Calgary Petroleum Products Company says that discovery  well near the post office of Black Diamond, is "drilling herself."  In ether words, the high quality gasoline oil forced through the oil bearing sand rock at the  bottomtunder high pressure it breaking up the rock and the flow is increasing.  'The drillers fear an actual gusher of almost pure gasoline, something unheard of in all the  annals of the world's oil industry.

The company will drill three additional wells to the one already drilling on its  property in which a flow-of wet gas has been bew>niing stronger right along.

Three wells will be drilled by the Bocky Mountain Company according to an announcement  made by the directors after a meeting held Tuesday afternoon. The contracts for this work have  been awarded to the North West Drilling Company. The contract calls for tbe drilling of 3,000  feet in each well.   P. John Sur will select the locations for the well*.  The coihpariy has increased its capital from $100,000 to $500,000 and has added 1,400 acres to  its lease holdings, bringing the'.total up t������ 3,400 acres.

'  Calgary, May 21.���������One hundred strings of drilling tools will be at work nigbt and day in the  Calgary oil district within the "next three months. The W. B. Martin firm has contracts in vjlt-  ious sections of Southern Alberta to drill 21 wells. One bundled rigs mean more than 100 wells. It  means several hundred, and if only one-tenth of the wells produce gasoline of the character  obtained from tho Dingman well then it will result in fabulous wealth for this district. The  excitement here continues intense, and this has been a busy day for the stockbrokers. Capitalists  are pouring into the city, new companies are being formed and the prices of the shares of several  of the leading companies continue to advance. . A movement is on foot for tbe formation of a stock  exchange, which is required to supervise oil transactions.

LIMITED  317-321 Cambie Street  2313 Main Street  Between 7th and 8th Ave*.  McKay Station, Burnaby  " "Ofii yes, of course.**  j "You know of that, then T"\ asked  [Miss Clement. And briefly I ran over!  [what Tup Sing had told me. \  i "John Soy, I understand, was the  ���������cook whom McNish Imprisoned ln the  galley/' I added.  . "It seems be broke bis way out Just  as the lorcha was sinking. McNish  {had waited until he had gone to his  <bunk for his usual bop, and had  ���������chosen the hour he was sleeping to  get away and scuttle the vessel. For  five days Soy floated .about on a bit of  wreckage, without food or drink, and  'was Anally picked up by a proa and  taken back to Macao at tbe 'mouth of  ithe Canton river, where, after weeks  of delirium, he told his story of the  lorcha's fate. From that day the search  >for McNish began. It seems that he  'had a partner, an Irishman, named  Moran, who for a time was suspected  ���������of having been in the conspiracy; for,  ���������you must remember, It was thought  then that the sinking of the lorcha had  ���������been planned from the first, the Idea  being that It was simply a scheme to  get tbe passage money from the poor  coolies, and then drown them."  , t "Horrible!" ejaculated the physician.  '���������But the Chinese are.Just," the missionary continued. "They discovered  that a certain United States cruiser  that "bad been warned of the attempted smuggling, did, on that particular  day, give chase to a lorcha, .which  eventually disappeared in the fog. So  the enmity against Moran subsided,,  and, ultimately, this same MOran became the most openly bitter of all the  avenging horde that for over a decade  and a half scoured the four corners of  the globe; for It seems tbat McNish  had not only made off with his share'  of the receipts of their joint enterprise, but had left him with a raining  lot of debts to settle as well. There  Tras something, too, I believe, about a  Chinese woman whose loyalty to Moran, McNish undermined, but I confess that part of the story ws* not  very clear to me. At all events Soy,  tlio bait-breed, and Moran, the Irishman, who appears to bave been a roving blade, a sort oi* soldier of fortune  with some talent for painting, became  tbt prime movers in this relentless  quest, In which they were backed by  what Is known as tbe Six Companies.  All tbe tongs, no matter how much at  variance on other points, were a unit  in this instance, and unlimited money  was always available to prosecute the  search."  A footihan, appearing at this Juncture with the Inevitable tea paraphernalia, interrupted temporarily the current of Mliss Clement's narrative. But  our Interest was such that we limited,  the cessation to the briefest possible  period. Dr. Addition, whose professional engagements were being toppled over one after another, politely  urged ber to continue, directly her cup  was ln her band.  "Think, Miss Clement," he said,  with an Ingratiating smile, "of the rapt-  audience you havel I trust It is at  one* an Inspiration and a compensation,"  "It surety Is," was the good lady's  prompt acknowledgment "And, by tbe  way, I must not forget to tell you bow  this man, McNish, actually had tbe  temerity to return to China a few  ;years ago. He appeared to think  either that bis crime bad been forgotten or tbat knowledge of It was limited to the Southern provinces, for In  itfct early fall of 1908, under one of bil  imany aliases, be arrived at Peking,  Jby way of tbe Trans-81berisn Railway."  Tbe doctor and I exchanged glances.  jit was odd bow confirmation pf tbe  error be had already avowed should  thus come about from tbe lips of one  wbo knew nothing of, bit story of a  ���������battered friendship.  "Oddly enough, Moran happened to  ibe In the city at the tine and every  arrangement was made to capture the  long-sought prey and convey blm to  Canton tor some exquisite torture de-  Vised especially to fit his crime. In  some way, however, tbe intended victim got wind of what was proposed,,  and came within an act of escaping  unscathed from under their very fingers. Indeed, be did escape in the end,  but not before Moran bad very nearly  put a unish to him by a knife thrust  In his back."  Once more I exchanged glances with  the physician, for scarcely half an  hour before. I had told him of the scar  folder McNish's left shoulder blade, re-  {���������Mived as I had been told, In Buffalo.  . "Moran fled from Peking after this  encounter, not knowing whether Ills  eneifay were dead or alive, and for  awhile, I believe, laid very low,' as  they say. In spite of all the efforts  of the combined Chinese organizations, McNish, warned now of his con-  ���������tut danger, eluded their search, but  at length Soy himself succeeded ln  tracing him to Canada and thence to  Buffalo. There Moran came, post-  baste, and once more-there was a  street encounter. Moran was arrested, and McNish charged blm with assault with intent to MIL The result  Was that Moran was convicted and  sent to prison for a term of years;  end once acain the earth seemed to  close over McNishT*  The discrepancies between Miss  Clement's narrative and that of Tup  Sing I did not regard as sufficiently  vital to raise a question over, yet I  must admit that I could hardly foresee a conclusion without a much,  graver antagonism of facts ss I knew  them.  The missionary baving paused to  sip her tea, Dr. Addison asked permit  sion to smoke a cigarette, wbich she  ���������readily granted.  "On Moran's release from prison,"  Miss Clement continued, fortified by  the fragrant Oolong, "be appears for  >the first time to have considered the  {advisability of adopting some sort of  an incognito. Prior to this time he  {bad, Soy told me, been carefully clean  isbaven and close-cropped. .Mow he  'grew a beard and wore his hair long,  jand, in addition, he doctored it with  Ihenna until it became a fiery red. He  !also changed his name from Moran to  Murphy, and Instead of frequenting  the busy marts of men, he retired to  an Isolated country place on the Cos  ���������Cob river and. posed aa an artist He  employed always a Chinese servant,  and at least once a week, without fail  be,visited Chinatown, keeping always  in touch with the powers there, which  were still unrelenting ln their efforts  to trace McNish."  She came now to Murphyjp so-called  chance meeting with Cameron on tbe  Fourth ot July, of which 'Cameron  (himself had already told me. I would  have saved her this recital, but it was  new to Dr. Addison and so 1 allowed  ber to proceed.  "It was plainly evident to Moran,"  she pursued, "that   McNish���������or  "Over and over again. It was he  who learned of the intention to take  the cruise. At first they thought they  would have to change their plans and  carry their enemy off before he had a  chance to take to his yacht. But Soy  maintained that that would be too  crude a method; whereas to let him  think that he had escaped and was  safe'away, and then, at the very moment of his triumph, to snatch him  from seeming security, would be the  very refinement of cruelty the avenger  so much desired. And so the properties were secured at some fabulous  figure���������I forgot just what they paid  for that fast power boat���������the scene  was. set, and the great act of the  drama, with Soy still the star, was  carried to a successful climax."  "But," I made question, "I don't see  bow Soy could take 6uch a risk. If It  had been McNish Instead of Qameron,  he certainly would have recognized  blm, when he was brought aboard  from the disabled dory."  "He thought of that, but you must  remember that ln all those sixteen  years McNish had never once seen  Soy. He thought he had perished  with the rest when the Sable Lorcha  went down. And so Soy decided that  ln oilskins, apparently unconscious, in  an open boat off the New England  coast there was not one chance ln ten  thousand that McNiBh would connect  him with the cook he had left for dead  in the South China sea."  "But McNish did recognize him as  soon as he laid eyes on him in this  house. I saw that myself, you know.  Miss Clement. He recognized him and  was terror stricken."  Hiss Clement smiled tolerantly. She,  was. armed at all point's.  '  "You did not know, I suppose, Mr..  Clyde, that that was not their first  meeting," she explained. "Soy met'  >McNlsh on the night you found him.  It was he who assaulted him, some-'  where about Seventh avenue and Fiftieth street, and would have killed him  then bad not tbe police arrived at the  moment The officers probably thought  McNish was intoxicated and let him  go, seeing that he could stand, and so  he Btaggered on to Fifth avenue; and  there you discovered him." "~  "No, I did* not know tbat," I admitted, a little crestfallen. "Wbat followed?"  "You remember I told'   you'   that  .������._. nn.a,^.^   .^..i    __ x������ .. _   Chinatown was in a state of frenty,  WP������ W \,���������at vMcN!8b-������J   at  the next day?   You can understand  ^!^*JT1^"?^ ���������  ������������*. wi*   Soy. of  McNish���������did not recognize blm, and  his delight at this discovery was unbounded; for it gave him opportunity,  quite unsuspectedly, to arrange all his  ,plans for a most ingenious campaign  ���������of torture. What that campaign consisted of, of course, yon already know,  Mr. Clyde, and I presume Dr. Addison  toes, too."  "Yes," I'replied ������j have told the  doctor."  "Wbat you don't know, though** she  ���������ddtd, "Is how it was managed."?..  "We bave been told something aliout  awrl pearls," J snggested.  "Aroyl-pearls?" queried Pr. Afldlson,  ouriousjy.  With as much clearness as possible  | explained to blm what I meant by  Ullng this admittedly inaccurate term.  "Incredible!" he exclaimed. "Can it  b������ possible tbat there is such an anaesthetic as this, and we have never  even heard of it before?"  "There can be no doubt about its  existence," J answered. "I myself have  experienced its effects, though I bave  never actually seen it put in operation"  Put It was Miss Clement who was  most convincing.  *J Jiave never seen either it or its  ���������Sects, Doctor," she said, "but I am  willing to believe even more marvel-  Hon* things than that where the Chi-  net* are concerned. You must remem-  W that at a race they are most jealous of their knowledge as well as  their possessions. Just now, after all  their many centuries of a civilization  greater in some respects than our  own, Wt are beginning to learn something of them and their ways, and I  ���������herald not be at all surprised to discover that ln chemistry,. In medicine  .even, they have forgotten more than  <#��������� Imow. Soy assured me that not  only for days, bnt for weeks, bs himself cams and went about Mr. Cam-  ���������ron's���������or, as be called it McNish's���������  Country place without being* either  Men or heard, simply by using this  ���������tber of invisibility.

Again and again, he assured me; he could have taken his victim's life but that he was Intent on  Inflicting a punishment more protract-  bdly horrible than mere sudden death."  "Who wrote the letters?" I asked.  "Mown."  "I thought so. And Moran HIM  the Chinaman who worked for him."  "No; there you are wrong; Mr.i  Clyde."      ~y..,  "Then who did?"  "Soy himself. He leaned of how  that boy, unable to control his hatred;  of the man who had slain some one or  knore of his kinspeople, carried back!  {the head that bad been cut from the1  feortralt, borrowed a rifle from Mr.i  Cameron's own gamekeeper, and shot;  jtbe canvas full of holes.

I cried, suddenly  realizing that the one really vital piece  of information we should have obtained, had all this while been de-'  layed. "What steamer? Did be .give  you the name of it?" *���������  "In Just a moment, Mr. Clyde," she  said, with a smile that I confess exasperated me.  "Pardon me," I returned, insistently, "but yoi������ do not realise, I fear, what  minutes even may mean in tbis matter."  "No," still very calm, "I really don't.  The steamer has been at sea now  twenty-five days. It is bound for Hong  Kong. If there was a chance of overtaking it, I���������"  "There's every chance of overtaking  It," I Interrupted once again. "Tomorrow, or next day, or even today, it  may put Into Bio. We must telegraph -  the United States Consulate at every  possible port"  And then, for the first time, apparently, Miss Clement seemed to appreciate there was a real urgency.  "Tbe steamer is the Glamorganshire/* she Bald, quickly: "A freight*  er; a tramp, I suppose; bound foe  Hong Kong. She sailed on Wednesday, the twenty-eighth of last month,  and Mr. Cameron was put aboard* half*  drugged, as one of the crew."  CHAPTER XXVII.  The Tortoise snd the Here.  .Although Miss Clement's Interesting  chapter of disclosures was by, no  means ended with the) name of tbe  steamer and Its date of sailing* It  there came, so far as I was concerned,  at least, to an abrupt intermission.  For, as though the delay and inaction  of the past month but'serred to swell  the flood of my eager energy, tho tide,  so long checked but now set free,  careering like an unleashed spring  freshet overrode all barriers. With  scant apology, I sprang to the telephone, snd if Miss Clement continued  her conversation with Dr. Addison, l  was deaf to what she said.  What I sought first of all, was corroboration. Did a steamship, named  the Glamorganshire, sail for Hong  Kong on October 28th? In less than  five minutes, .the facts were mine.  Buch a steamer had sailed for tho  east on that date. Her agents Were  Bartlett Brothers. Their offices were  in the Produce Exchange Building.  ' Another minute, and Bartlett Brothers were on the wire; No, the Glamor-  Enshire did not take the South Amer-  in 'route. Her course was through  the Mediterranean and the Suez Canal.  Bhe carried no passengers. She was  (British. 8he was very slow. She had  called at the Azores and then at Gibraltar, where she had been delayed.  ia coaling. Yes, she would make sevi  era! Mediterranean ports. If all went!  well, sbe would reach Port Said about  becember 6th. Certainly not before  that  Probably a day or so later.  I dare, say it was exceptional that I  secured all this information with so  little trouble, and without giving any  hint as to why I desired It but merely  on the statement that I was Mr. Clyde,  of The Week.  Bo far as I could judge, the Glamorganshire would call at Algiers in a  few days; and for a while I considered  the advisability of communicating  with the United States Consul at that  Sort through the State Department at  foShington-   But a knowledge of th>>  o  o  <���������  o  <���������  n  (���������  <>  '���������  o  (������  <���������  <���������  <���������-  <���������  Phone Seymour 943  Oavies & Sanders  General Contractors  55-66 DAVIS CHAMBERS  615 HASTINGS ST.

After all, l\ believed  that if Cameron waB to be rescued  from the gruelling slavery of servitude  on this* Eritish freighter, the work  must not be intrusted to the personally disinterested. v '  Thereupon I consulted" calendars,  steamer schedules, and' Continental  time-tables. By the fast transatlantic  liner sailing on the morrow,-I could  make Paris in six days. Forty-eight  hours later I could be in Bricjdisi. 'If  good fortune followed, less t*an four  days more would land me at Port Said.  It was now Monday, November 23.  Twelvo days hence would be December 5th, and tbe Glamorganshire, her  agents'had told me,^ could not possibly  reach there before December 6th. The  margin was not wide, but It seemed to  me sufficient, and tbe thought of further Inaction,' now that the trail lay  bare, was nothing less than unendurable torment.  Wisdom, I suppose, would bave die  tated the advisability of securing some  badge of authority from my own government before setting forth on a mission Involving so delicate a point of  international maritime law as tbat  which was here embraced; - but the  leaving of time was with me, just then,  the paramount consideration. The loss  Of a day meant the possible missing  not only of connections, but of tbe  main object of my Journey; and so,  (armed with nothing more potent than  'good health, strong determination, and  ja well-filled purse I boarded the Kron-  iprlns Wilhelm and started on my diagonal race to head off a quarry which  already had twenty-five days' start of  me.  Speed being all-Important,'my wish  Iwas to travel alone and unencumbered, but at the last moment I was  persuaded to consent' to the company  of both Evelyn Grayson and Dr. Addison.v Realizing the brave, unfaltering  assistance which the young woman  had afforded me from the first, I could  hardly refuse to gratify her wish to bej  present at what' we Jboth hoped would  -be the victorious.end. Moreover, the  thought of absence from her for a  month at least, and probably much  longer, was far from the most pleasant contemplation; my yielding, therefore, jwas not altogether unselfish.  Dr. Addison's case was different. At  the last moment he decided to go  abroad by the same sblp; and, on the  way over, touched by his contrition,  and his almost pathetio desire to  make amends to his quondam friend  at-the earliest possible minute, I myself Invited him to go with us the rest  of the way.  Bvelyn had proposed that Mrs. Lancaster should also be Included in the  party, but this I would not hear of. If,  for propriety's sake, another presence  waa necessary, her maid, and, ultimately, Dr. Addison, afforded all tbe  security tbe conventions could de-  Toe fever of baste was upon all of  vs from the start. The time on shipboard, in spite of our common subject  of converse dragged eternally. >  Should we reach Cherbourg In time  1������ connect with tbe P.*. O. Express  at Paris? That was tbe one constantly recurring question, to be speculated  upon wltb varying degrees of hope and  flespalr.  As good fortune would have It, wo  foado the train with fifteen minutes to  ���������pare, and the run to BrlndUi was accomplished without accident or on-  i eemly delay.  Here, however, we were compelled  to wait six hours. The steamer was  late., owing to some seismic disturbance off tbe coast of Malta, and fear  of encountering new and necessarily  uncharted volcanic islands, which had  demanded slow and cautious sailing.  However sinister bad been tbe - game  Fat* played with us in the earlier  stages of our quest, the favor of Its  present mood could not be gainsaid.  Tbat wo were now reasonably sure of  reaching Port Said in advance of tho  Glamorganshire was in itself a welcome relief from trying anxiety; but  tbat was only a small part of the  banquet of good things provided for  VS.  I was still exercised In a measure  over tbe steps which, must be taken to  secure Cameron's release. Without  proper introduction to the authorities,  it was. becoming more and more a  question in my mind whether, after  all, I should be able to accomplish my  end ln the brief time to which I was  restricted.  With this fell possibility of failure  dinging in thy reflections, I was striding the white deck of the P. and O.  steamer, in the early morning following tbe night of our departure from  Brindlai, when a hand, dropped heavily on my shoulder, spun me round to  face a.laughing, sun-browned, yOung  Englishman in white flannels.  For just a moment I was literally,  as well as figurateively, taken aback,  for the tone of tbe ringing voice which  greeted me carried me five years at  least into the past, when Lionel Hartley and I had ridden to hounds together at Melton Mowbray, while fellow guests at a house-party in the  neighborhood.  "You bally Yankee!" he was shout-  jlnlg.   'Taney running into you in this  fashion!    I'm jolly glad to see you,  %' bid chap!"    ..  4 | Though my delight at seeing him  4 [Was at that moment tempered by ab-  V sorbing interest in my mission, it rose  3 ja few minutes later to unadulterated  V, ecstasy, when I diBCOverd that he was  !j 'stationed at Port Said, and occupied  <!

Abbott, long known as a peace advocate, has in his recent address before the Navy  League made a noted deliverance that will have  a. tenjjencj? to correct the shallow sentimentaliam  of the, false pacifist* and awaken public opinion  both in Canada and the United States to the  saucred duty of providing an adequate and efficient  fighting force not only for the defence of the  Homeland but also for compelling law and order  in such countries as are unable to secure same  under their own government, and for which other  nations may justly hold us responsible.  Dr. Abbott's words were as follows?  " I am here tonight simply to make a confession  of my faithv Tarn a Christian minister, I recognise Jesus Ghrist as my supreme master, whose'  spirit above all things, I wish to possess, and incidentally I am a member of half a dozen peace  societies; and it is because I am a member of half  a dozen peace societies, and because I am a Christian minister, and because I have for fifty yers  devoted myself to his service, and because he is  my supreme master, that I, owning allegiance to  him, advocate an adequate navy.  The character of a navy, as of an individual, is  determined not by its acts, but by its motives. -If  a nation is dominated by the- greed of territory,  |>y political ambition, or by, selfish fear for its  iwn interest, it is an ignoble nation; if it is dominated by the spirit of justice, of humanity, and  of chivalry* it is * noble oatWn; and it is just as  ignoble if it is governed by fear as if it is governed by greed or ambition. Weakness and fear always go together, and strength and courage always go together. The message to Israel through  Joshua was: "Be strong and of good courage.*"  | believe that is a divine message to the American  people and to all nations that will, listen to tbe  voice divine'. What muscle is to the individual,  that the army and navy are to nations. Weakness  tends to fear, strength to courage, and fear as a.  dominating motive always tends to deterioration  of character.   Put a great population under the  r' iwer of fear, and you have a degraded nation,  want to see tbe young men of this nation grow  strong, therefore I believe in athletics, though a  %oy ia sometimes hurt and occasionally killed in a  football game. I want this nation strong, so I  '^rant-to see it -equipped- with -the- strength -that-  begets courage; and I advocate an adequate navy,  riot merely to protect ourselves from assault, not,  ((ertainy, tbat we may equal our neighbors in the  4isplay of arms, but that we may be strong to do.  certainly, that we may equal our neighbors in the  ! Just across our border now for a yaa* jwarchy  has been going on. Two bands of brigands have  ���������ind dare wherever duty calls to act.  tieen fighting one another, and one is no more respectable than the other. They Tiave murdered  Americans, and Germans, and Spaniards; they  have robbed and looted; and we have waited  Sth patience. And now at last we have sent our  vy down there, and some critics of the administration say: "This is queer; you have done nothing while Americans were murdered and property  was taken, and now, because of an insult to our  {jag, you send a navy there," and I answer, "Better late than never."  I I do not criticise the administration. I have  been very, very glad I was not the president of the  United States, or even the .secretary of the navy,  ijhey have been in a very difficult position, and  patience was better than too rapid action. What  we ought to have done I do not discuss, but one  thing I affirm. We ought not to ask of our fears  What we can do, we ought not to ask how we can  get the power or territory, but we ought to ask  what chivalry and justice and humanity and fair  dealing to the ill treated demand. Courage demands something of us, not weakness.  So I believe in a nation's equipping itself with  strength, because only so can it equip itself with  courage. I have great respect for some, of my  friends who advocate" disarmament���������for themy  and not for their opinions; and yet I believe.the"  policies which they advocate would inevitably  lead to the deterioration of the nations which they  seek to serve.

It is to be a 72-inch reflector. Its length  will be over 30 feet, but an arrangement of mirrors at the top will give it the equivalent of 108  feet focal length. The weight of th������ reflector will  be about two tons. The tube is to be of structural  steel, and its weight will be about eight tons. The  moving parts of the instrument will weigh nearly  forty tons.  The contractors for the steel work are tho  Warner & Swazey Company of Cleveland, Ohio,  who have designed and constructed the mountings  for'the two largest telescopes in the world. The  mirror and other optical parts will be supplied by  the'John A. Brosheaur Company of Pittsburg. The  specifications are by Dr. John Stanley Plaskett,  astronomer of the department of the interior,  Ottawa.  The cost of the telescope will be about $90,000,  and the total cost of the observatory, which.will  be sixty-six feet in diameter and sixty feet to the  top of the revolving dome, together with the necessary land, the offices and residences of the  staff, will at the outset come to about $200,000.  The observatory itself will be wholly of steel  construction. It is expected that the telescope  will be installed within 18 months.  The telescope will be located at a height of 750  feet above sea level. Thii'point has been selected  because of exceptionally favorable climatic and  atmospheric conditions, Snd only after very careful investigations of annual temperature, minimum variations of temperature between day and  night, absence of fogs and haze, steadiness of the  atmosphere, high percentage of .clear sky, light  precipitation. , ���������  There is a growing, distrust in Germany oyer  Russia's increasing armaments. It can hardly be  said to aiijount to a "Russian scare," but it is  .sufficient to. strengthen the hands of those who  have endeavored to secure a betterment in the  relations between Germany and Great Britain.  Germany's fear of Russia is founded upon  logical grounds. Russia and.France ate allies,  and, of late years, these two countries have been  working hand in hand in drafting a scheme 'of  co-operation which would place Germany at a  disadvantage in the event of war. The effective  peace strength of the Russian army is, 1*385,000  men, 'and it is proposed'to increase this number  by 450,000. Russia's population is increasing  three and a half times as fast as Germany's. AT  present there are three Russians to .every single  German, and before long there will be four.  Russia is believed to covet the Eastern provinces of Germany while she could make good use of  the harbors of Konigsberg and Dantzig. Germany  has a moral claim on the Baltic provinces of  Russia, where there are more Germans than Russians, which form a natural outlet for her overcrowded population.       .

They would prefer to give  the farmer promises only.  FARMERS, HEAD THIS!  Since 1878 the duty on  agricultural implements has  been reduced from 35 per  cent, to 12i per cent.  Of that reduction Conservative governments have,  made    -  _    20 PER CENT.  and the Liberals  Only 2} PER CENT.

Have you paused to consider the)which  do  not  include  doctors* fees  great financial loss caused every year  through Typhoid Fever?  Typhoid fever is a filth disease, although cleanly people often become  affected. It is\carried by human'excretions and gets into the drinking  water through improperly constructed  wells, defective drains, etc., or o������/tv������i  ' food through the agency of flies,<iod<  so on into the mouth and1 stomach! -  This disease is  far too. prevalent,'  the deaths in British Columbia forthef  ��������� last year from this cause alone oeing  ; eighty-five. # -"  , Apart from this- loss of life, the,'  economic waste is enormous.   lDur-<  v ing the same period about 700 persons  were ill with' this sickness in this'  Province. If each pf these cases were  laid up for 8 weeks, a short average.;  .this would "mean a total period of,  39,200 days in hospital, and with hospital expenses at $2 yer day, a total  cost of $78,400. , <- ' '  If each patient required a total of  four months before he regained his  full strength-,and earning capacity,"  this would mean a total loss of 84,000  days. As the majority of these cases  occur in men earning $3 a day and  over, the loss ,��������� of -earning .capacity  would be about $252,000. This, together  with  ttie^Thospital   expenses,"  and .other items, gives a gross total  of $330,400. Aside from this, many  persdns never regain their old health,  and this, together with the loss of  life, cannot be estimated in dollars.  To prevent this disease,. besides  cleanliness, a method of immunization  fy now available. /This consists of  the use of typhoid prophylatic, which  is, a sterile solution for hypodermic  J ejection. It may be used by a doctor or nurse, and will be supplied on  application to the Secretary of the  Provincial Board of Health, Victoria.  1 /After; the first dose there is some  A 1       ~9 f  jsjoght reaction, the person inoculated  feeling as' if he had an ordinary attack of la grippe. This passes off in  the course of a very few hours and  does ipo&prevent the person following his usual work. The second dose  is given from seven to ten days after  the first, and from this practically  no reaction occurs. A third dose,  for still more complete protection, is  given from seven to ten days after  the second.  That this innoculation does protect  is shown 1>y the following tables  taken from the report of Dr. H. G.

Clark, of Montana, has donated $10,-  000 toward the building for his state,  stipulating that the state and counties of Montana appropriate "enough  to make a creditable exhibit that we  will not be tshamed of."  The Caledonian Club of San Diego  is going to erect a special building  on the grounds of the Panama-California Exposition for the entertainment of visiting Scots expected next  year. Inquiries from the Scottish societies of Canada and the United  States indicate that there will be several tours, the visitors bringing with  them their own bands of pipers and  possibly one of the famous "Kiltie-  bands of Canada.  The effort will be made to have as  many as possible come during the  Caledonian week, which will be set  aside for the Scotch celebration' in  order to have a Highland parade in  costume -with several hundred participating.  The building will be a rproduction  of Robert Burn's old cottage, and it  is planned 'to have the materials for  the thatching brought here from Scotland and placed by a Scotch carpenter.  San Diego, less than twenty miles  from the Mexican border, guarded by  Fort.

A MIRACLE OF SCIENCE  London, England.���������The very latest miracle of science is being exhibited in_a very secret building in  this city.  .   Emile Bachelet, an   old   Frenchman,' long  resident  in  America,  is  said to have produced a railway system permitting of a speed of .300  miles per, hour.  The cars are made of  .steel with an aluminium base.   This  metal,  suffering  magnetic  repulsion  by electric magnates which are situated under the track, holds the cars  suspended in the air.    A series of  tunnel-shaped   selenoids   along' the  track,, which   are  successively  elec-  triMlJy magnetized^ pull the suspended cars' at a terrific speeds ���������"    j     ~  This type of car is intended for  goods and mail traffic, Bachelet contending that the cost of carriage for  300 miles would be a cent a pound.  The cost of laying the track would be  $25,000 a mile, plus $60,000 for power  houses at each hundred miles. The  passenger cars would be fitted with  propellers and motors similar to aeroplanes.  Covers Country in Few Minutes.  ��������� The inventor suggests that it will  be possible to do the present express  journey from London to Manchester  in 48 minutes instead of four hours,  whilst the 8 1*2 hours now consumed  in the journey from London to Glasgow can be reduced to 75 minutes.  Experiments with large sized models yesterday so impressed railway  experts that Bachelet was offered the  use of a circuit within five miles of  London to fully and practically test  the invention which .represents 20  years' experiments.  The Express editorially admits that  the principle of the invention forms  material for an Arabian Nights or a  Jules Verne novel rather than the  prosaic circumstances of a commercial undertaking.  - "It is impossible to estimate the effects of the invention.. If as probable,  it" bears practice tests on a large scale  successfully! the very idea will alarm  the timerous and cause the ultra-  conservative to dream a nightmare.

The Fruit Commisioner issues a  general statement on winter conditions all over Canada. With -exception of the peach crop on Niagara  peninsula it is of an extremely optimistic nature.-���������---"������������������-���������~���������-  The first regular Fruit Crop Report will be published on June 15, and  will contain a full report upon all  varieties of fruit:  General Conditions.  In the province of Nova Scotia fruit  trees have come through the winter  in good condition, with no apparent  injury to either buds or branches.  The prospects are that an excellent  apple crop will be harvested, inasmuch as the trees are well set with  blossom buds. It has been reported  that the conditions during last win  ter and this spring coincide almost  exactly with those which preceded  the season of 1911, when the record  crop of Nova Scotia was harvested  'The weather still remains cool and  the trees are somewhat late in coming  out.  In the province of Ontario conditions are generally favorabe. The  early winter was-,very mild, but during January and February severe cold  weather was experienced 'throughout  the entire province and a great deal  of damage was done to the peach crop  in the Niagara peninsula. All other  varieties of fruit seem to have withstood injury and the buds have set  for a good crop. There have������been reports of a probable shortage in plums,  particularly" in Western Ontario. It  is not unlikely that such a condition  will prevail, inasmuch as the ; crop  harvested last year was a particularly  fieavy one,, and one which might almost be considered exceptional.  Briti_h Columbia reports a very  mild winter and practically no injury  in any of the fruit sections. The  spring has been one of the earliest  experienced for many years. The  general prospects are that a large  crop of all varieties of fruit will be  produced.  FDR SALE CAMS HERE  Western Canada Oil is the  Greatest Money Making Prop=  osition Ever Witnessed Here  Every age brings its opportunity.. The present opportunity is the highly profitable oil business in Western Canada. As cqal  is to the East; as cotton is to the South; as wheat is to the Prairies; so is oil to the Pacific Coast.v * .      %    '  Entire world is clamoring for new oil fields. The navies of the world, the railroads, industries and automobiles want oil in  ever increasing quantities. Stop the production of oil for a week and you will stop the hum of the wheels of industry quicker  than through any other means. ,  Western Cauda is just beginning to realize the stupendous, far-reaching importance of its oil fields. 'For a long time mineralogists, geologists and oil men insisted that Western Canada had oil. But not until the Dingman well brought it, in big  quantities that the people gave this wealth any credence. '  Even the most skeptical are assured now. Government geologists and mineralogists, expert oil men and men who have been  associated with oil business their whole lives KNOW that Western Canada lias oil in immense quantities.   s >  Right here in British Columbia two men have one well with a sufficient production of oil every day to bring a revenue of  Sixty Dollars daily. Their holdings consist of 2,960 acres. They have quietly but persistently gone about their business and  invested over Fifty Thousand Dollars of their own money, as well as nine years of thei riives, TO PROVE UP THEIR HOLDINGS AND BRING ABOUT THE RESULT OF AN ACTUALLY. PRODUCING WELL.  This property is in the Sage Creek District, endorsed by such authorities as Dr. G. M. Dawson, of the Canadian, Geological  Survey; the Provinical Mineralogist,.A. J. S.

Oil, the Magic  Millionaire Maker  See what others have done  You can do it, too  *  This is an undisputed record���������without exception oil has produced the biggest combination of wealth ever known to man.  ,< It'is an acknowledged fact.that.oil has'made more people rich  than any other Investment; at lesB risk and less outlay to the  inventor.   But the greatest gains were made by those who got In .  early, who bought when the stock was first offered.  $10. Increases to $12,000. Mr. P. Parlee, steamfltter, employed in the Canadian Northern'Railway Bhops at Edmonton,  Alberta, purchased $10 worth of stock in the Union Oil ompany.  He was ridiculed by his closest friends.   The stock certificates  - were left in the bottom of an old trunk, and was regarded only  as "a reminder of a bad Investment. The discovery of oil in  Western Canada reminded him of his oil stock certificate in the  trunk. He tok it to a broker WHO TOLD HIM THE STOCK WAS  WORTH $225 A SHARE. As ha never claimed any dividends on  the stock he cleaned up on this original $10 investment the tidy  ' fortune of $12,000. How conclusively this proves that one good  investment is worth a lifetime of labor.  If Mr. Parlee had saved his money andjjut it in the bank,  say at the rate of $5 a week FOR TWENTY TEARS, and the  bank allowed him 4 per cent, compound Interest, he would have  been worth AT THE END OF TWENTY YEARS. JUST $8,070.  Yet for the small sum of $10 invested early he made more than  he could accumulate in twenty years.  $100 increases to $36,120. A few-years ago Richard Ellis, a  young man. went from Bradford, Pa., to "Los Angeles for his  health. While there he bought ten shares of the Home Oil Company's stock for $100. After a little the stock advanced to $40  per share, and Ellis Bold throe shares, more than paying for hia  original investment.  He still had seven shares. Suddenly the stock began to leap  and point by point It reached the enormous value of $4,993 a  share in the open market. When it reached the $4,500 mark  Ellis sold his seven shares for $31,600. With what he had already  received for the three shares, "his total return on $100 was  $36,120.  You say these are exceptional cases. Well, how about this?
