Irish Parliament cannot legislate on peace  or war, navy, army or any naval or military  force, foreign relations, trade outside Ireland except certain defined taxation, coinage or legal  tender.   . _ V"  It cannot make any law, directly or indirectly,  to establish or endow any religion or prohibit  the free exercise thereof or give a preference,  privilege, or advantage or impose any disability  or disadvantage on ecclesiastical statutes, or  make any religious belief or religious ceremony  a condition of the validity of any marriage.  Temporary restrictions are placed on legislation on land purchases, old age pensions, national  insurance, labor exchanges, Royal Irish Constabulary, postoffice and other savings banks and  friendly societies.  The Executive remains invested in the Sovereign or in his representative's!  Forty-two members still will be sent from Ireland to the House of Commons.  The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council  to give the final decision as ������o the constitutional  validity pf any Act passed by the Irish Parliament. 'lM '_'*''  The Irish Exchequer to defray the cost of the  Irish Administration except for reserved services  , mentioned above.  The Imperial Exchequer to pay an annual sum  to the Irish Exchequer, starting at $2,500,000 and  eventtttiUy; tetter si* yeffr^ becoming a pwfmanent  payment of $1,000,000 annually.  Since the passing of the bill there has been a  .death like silence in Ulster. Is it the calm that  ^ precedes the storm?  ALASKA RAILWAY STARTS WORK  Cordova, Alaska, June 2.���������Actual work on the  surveys of posible routes for the Government's  railroad in Alaska was begun today when the  first stake was driven at Chitina by the recon-  naisance party under Henry Peyo, who will sur-  h vey the route from Chitina, where the Fairbanks  trail leaves the Copper River and Northwestern  Railroad, to the Matanuska coal fields.  t  There is little further light on the situation  south of Calgary to record this week. The Ping-  man well has been "capped," fearing, so it is said,  that a gusher may break out and pending the  arrival and erection of a big steel tank. No other  well has, as yet, been brought in, nor, according to  best accounts, can there be for 3 or 4 weeks yet,  as it will be fully that time before any of the  drills now in operation reach the level where oil  can be expected.  The excitement over the Dingman''strike" has  [partially subsided, and prices of that stock have  ; receded considerably.  But the general situation in Alberta remains  the same, and money is pouring in from every  quarter of the globe to further the development  of what experts concede to be the largest oil field  yet discovered.  From Fort McKay (where the Kootenai form-  [ation outcrops) to the Boundary in Alberta, and  [from the Rockies in Flathead country, British Co-  flumbia, to Moose Jaw in Saskatchewan, oil lands  [are being staked, and companies formed and  stock of same offered on the market. Old oil  [operators are appearing from all the old proven  Ifields and are enthusiastic oyer this. Drilling  contracts are being let by the scores, and a dis-  jcouraged and somewhat sullen Western Canada  (has been changed again into her normal bouyant,  ] eager hard working self.  Of course there* will be lots of money lost.  [There is a fool born every minute, and form the  [natural prey of the "Wild-Catter." And, besides, at the best, oil drilling, like mining, is an  | uncertain quantity. Men and women are pour-  ling fortunes into the game which, taken at its  .worst, is.a thousand times better than spending  money at card table or in extravagancies of dress  |or life-  And there will be fortunes won���������great fortunes���������greater than any perhaps in the past���������as  the field is certainly the greatest arid-richest yet  discovered.        . sl^gV|;\:-"  The main point is that the discovi^y^Tjbil in  Western Canada will attract th* ;n������i_f needed  capital for development, and tha^ilpfflaiids of industry, so completely tied up durii^lii^;last two  .oars, for lack of the necessaryil^^tiibKdperate  Hh, will be set at work agaiBLV:^_s^||^/;  Forty-Nine on June 3rd.  This week took place what is really the first  Empire,wide celebration of King George's birthday, all the banks in Canada and schools, government and municipal offices being closed for the  day.  As yet the general public have not responded,  but that will come in time.  This celebration has been clouded by the awful disaster on the St. Lawrence, when more than  1000 lives were lost by the collision between the  mpire Celebration this Year.  StOrtstad, Norwegian collier, and the C. P. R.  liner Empress of Ireland. When thousands of  homes are mourning a sudden and unexpected  bereavement, and the whole Empire is shocked  with this terrible incident in ocean traffic, people have little heart for holidaying. None the  less, the heart of the Empire beats true to the  King-Emperor and his Queen, and from many  million hearts rises the wish for a long and honored life for both.  THE S.S. OLYMPIC DAILY.  A copy of the S.S. Olympic Daily News, under  date May 24, published in mid-ocean, has been  handed us. Amongst other Marconigrams published are the following:  "London, May 24.��������� The British Government  has* arranged a contract for a large supply of  fuel oil from the Anglo-Persian Oil Co., and in  order to assist the company carrying out its agreement they have purchased 2,000,000 ordinary  shares and 2,000,000 debentures."  "Ottawa, May 24.���������The Canadian Pacific Railway has published an authorized statement regarding the Calgary oil fields, stating that they  actually exist and are likely to become very profitable, but depreciating any attempt at oil-land  booming."  SOUTH VANCOUVER.  Reeve Kerr announces that the bank has been  asked for $150,000 more, making $325,000 in all  for local improvement work this year, and that  prospects are good for getting it. This will enable the council to put about 300 men to work.  Councillor Rutledge, chairman of Finanee Committee, says that municipal matters are in much  better shape now than they were a month ago.  BODWELL BOAD PAVING.  In China there are 2,955 Christian Congregations, 548 ordained Chinese pastors, 5,364 unor-  dained workers, and 470,000 members of evange-  jlical churches.  Tenderi Opened.  SOUTH VANCOUVER, June 3.���������At a meeting  of the council Tuestray afternoon the following  firms submitted tenders for the paving of Bodwell  Road: Harrison & Wall, Henry J. Kaiser, M. P.  Cotton & Co., B. C. Granitoid, Dominion Creosot-  ing Co., Columbia Bithulithic Co.  Some of the firms tendered on a unit basis and  others in a lump sum, making an exact comparison impossible. The tenders were referred to the  engineer for tabulation.  The Bodwell Road ratepayers petitioned the  council to use the pavement made by the Bithulithic Co.  The executive of the Main Street Improvement  Association met the council and asked them to  pave Main street through to the River Road this  year as well as install sewerage facilities on the  southern slope. The delegation was informed that  other parts of the municipality had to be conV  sidered as there was only a limited supply of  money in the bank. ���������    -u  PEACE PROPOSALS  BOARD TO RULE MEXICO  President Wilson and Secretary Bryan seem,  to-be on the point of securing another triumph.  In the face of an almost universal newspaper demand for immediate reprisals on Huerta and incidentally, of. course, on Mexico, for refusing to  salute, unconditionally, "Old Glory," the president and his secretary "have dared to accept mediation. To an outsider it looked a hopeless task,  but the Niagara conference last week submitted  "peace proposals" to the parties interested,  which, if accepted, will bring about, almost in- ,  stantly a cessation of the Mexican warfare, existing and threatened.  The peace proposals are as follows:  First���������That the new provisional government  will comprisee a president pro tempore and four  cabinet ministers.  Second���������That Gen. Huerta will appoint the  man selected for the office of provisional president  as secretary of state for foreign afairs. The gen- _  eral then will resign and the secretary, of state  automatically will become president pro tempore  under the provisions of the Mexican constitution.  Third���������That a majority of the five men appointed will give all decisions oh the questions  which, under the mediation agreement, they must  consider. ' -.  Fourth���������That the ministers appointed will fill  the ofices respectively of finance, interior* foreign affairs, and war. t  Fifth���������That immediately after the provisional  government assumes power the United States will  withdraw from"Vera Cruz. . - -���������  Sixth���������that the United States will recognize  formally the new government and lend it moral  support in the establishment of peace, and order.  Seventh���������That the new provisional government will make prompt arrangements for a pres-  idental election under reforms proposed by the  mediators.  Eighth���������That the permanent government will  take measures for the passage of a law reforming the land situation.  Ninth���������That the flag of the United States will  be saluted when Vera Cruz is evacuated and the  United States warships will salute the flag of  Mexico.  The selection of the five men is the crucial  point; and the secret of the names under discussion has been jealously guarded. But negotiations are said to be progressing favorably both  "withT^hTVHuWa^istsTInd the: G^ipariawts^ and^atv^  any moment the parties involved may signify their  assent to the peace proposals when the formal  agreement will be drawn up and then the signatures.  If this is accomplished it will add enormously  to the prestige of President Wilson and Secretary  Bryan, and give them a standing with the world  powers abroad and the best forces at home that  should enable them to accomplish much in the way  of reforms so pressingly needed.  II STEVENS, U SCORES AfiAIN  DEED EXECUTED BY SOI FREDERICK  BORDEN IS DECLARED TO BE VOID  Ottawa, June 1.���������The Exchequer Court this  morning gave out its judgment in the Deadman's  Island case argued on Tuesday last. As expected  Mr. Justice Caseels ha3 decided in favor of the  contentions of the City of Vancouver and the department of justice. His judgment finds that the  deed executed by Sir Frederick Borden in 1904  purporting to give perpetual rights to the island  to Theodore Ludgate and his associates to have  been without authority, and, therefore, null and  void.  The Vancouver Lumber Company will have to  pay the costs of the crown in the action-  London, June 2.���������The Cunard liner Maure-  tania landed her passengers here, vi Fishguard, at  5:45 yesterday afternoon whilst those of the  Vaterland, via Southampton, did not reach here  till 8:30 p. m., thus giving the palm of victory  to the Cunarder, at least as far as London is  concerned.  The Vaterland, however, is said to have covered the longer distance and made a call at Cherbourg.  If this is true it is but the first race in an exciting contest for the blue ribbon of the Atlantic.  SENTENCED TO DIE ON AUGUST 19  George Van Horst was found guilty by jury on  Tuesday afternoon of the murder of a Japanese  fisherman, and sentenced by Justice Gregory to  pay the penalty on August 19.

First and foremost, we  know what each preparation  contains. The formula is  worked out after years of  experience and repeated  trials until we have as near  a perfect article as it is possible to obtain. This is what  we do not know about the ordinary Patent medicine. We  do hot know what it contains  any ihore than you do and so  neither one of us knows that  it is the preparation which  you need. You might easily  take the wrong thing and do  you no good.  Then again we make our own  prep's in the store and exercise  far more care than average patent medicine receives, which is  made in large factories, in large  quantities and made only to sell.  Our own preparations are  made to build up a name. We  stand back of them and will be  glad to refund you the price of  anything you buy if it is not satisfactory.

WHERE WHEEL MEETSrKEEL---YANeOUVER  All Roads Lead to Terminal City of Canada and Many of the Greatest  Make This a Main Port of Call  ip Lines  EVENTEEN years ago there existed in  British Columbia but one line of railway  with connection to the outside world. At  the same time there were but two local  lines, of steamships in the traffic between B.C.  ports. One line of steamships made Vancouver  its home port in trans-oceanic transportation, and  one other line gave an infrequent service between  Vancouver and Australia. The city then was but  a struggling community of less than 15,000 souls,  and no one dared, even if gifted with the vision  to see it, to venture any predictions of the future  greatness of the city as a transportation centre.  Then came the sudden spectacular springing  into being of the trade to the Klondike, caused  by that feverish rush of argonauts from all parts  of the world to the fabulously rich gold diggings  of the far and frozen Yukon. Solid growth had  failed to fire the imagination of any one over the  prospects of this young city on the margin of as  fair a harbor as might be found on the coast line  of America, east or west. But the vision of gold,  glittering, alluring, in the Yukon, turned all eyes  portance to be mentioned, that it should possibly  have taken first place in any discussion of this  harbor. That is the fact that here is a free, open-  all-the-year-round harbor, with the finest natural  facilities, and with a climate so equable that it  permits of any line of industry being carried,on  winter and summer equally as well. A pointed  instance, not to turn too far from the subject,  the lumber mills in Vancouver are run every  month in the year, because here no real winter is  felt, and in the lumbering branch of the industry  there is nothing to prevent timber being taken  out of the woods and booms of logs towed in  in coast waters to Vancouver every day in the  year.  Railway Development.  Railway development is keeping pace with  shipping in concentrating upon Vancouver. All  Canadian railway lines are either built or building to Vancouver. It is scarcely 28 years since  the first cross-continent railway train reached  this port.   That was the Canadian Pacific Bail-  within the Great Northern's re-claimed area,  which, will transform that hitherto useless  trict into a great railway terminal, occupied]  the second transcontinental line to reach  couver.    The extent of this re-claimed area  some 160 acres, and it is so arranged that  City of Vancouver secures a portion of  ground as well as a number of leading thoroi  fares which will serve as direct outlets across]  railway area from Mount Pleasant and Qrd  view straight into the heart of the city by]  shortest routes. This improvement when  pleted is destined to revolutionize that sectioi|  the city.  While busy with its reclamation work,  with securing completion of its lines direct  Vancouver, the Canadian Northern is also ui  contract with the city to erect a magnifij  terminal at a cost of over a million and a  dollars on the frontage of Main street oppd  the present bridge across False Creek.

Tenders  were opened at council meeting on Tuesday afternoon, six firms submitting offers.  A close examination of the bids reveals the  keen competition on this work, and with the  warning of some of the paving work done in the  City of Vancouver before us, we advise extreme  caution in the decision.  The lowest bid does not always mean the cheapest paving. A man may pay a very low price for  an article and find that he has something dear  at any price. This has been eminently the case in  much of the city paving. In some of the bids  opened on Tuesday the figures seem low, but  when we come to examine the material offered  for the money the low price does not figure out  as it seems -to appear. For instance the material  used by the Bithulithic Company only makes 4.2  yards per batch, whilst the same material used by  another company makes 5.6 yards per batch, showing quite a percentage of difference in the cost of  material put into the work. This is a point that  the lay mind does not readily grasp, but that, we  trust, will be fully gone into by the" engineer's  department ere contract is let.  Another point that should be taken into consideration is the record of paving already laid  down. We have on Kingsway, South Vancouver,  one of the finest driveways in the world, reaching  right across the municipality from Knight Boad  to Boundary, a piece of magnificent workmanship  that it will be difficult to surpass���������laid down, we  believe, by the Columbia Bitulithic Co.  South Vancouver should also guard against being placed in the same unfortunate position as  Burnaby through the failure of the contractor  and his inability to complete the contract.  In doing permanent road work of the nature  contemplated, the lowest bid is not always���������indeed, not often the most advantageous. There  are many points besides mere low figures to be  taken into consideration. "We have mentioned  some. The cost of material and workmanship  * used. The record of paving already laid as to  satisfactory surface and durability under use.  Also the responsibility of the contractors as to  work and guarantees given.  South Vancouver ratepayers are now fully  (Continued Page 5)  to Yjncogver, and _set _M^niption_ that^amous  "Klondike rusfiv'' Ttiaiti was the rusbVthat made  ' Vancouver famous, too-  To meet the demand for transportation, not  only did shipping men charter steamers to bring  throngs of gold-seekers to Vancouver, but scores  of steamers were placed in commission to carry  the gold-seekers and their outfits and supplies  north to the point where the overland struggle  to the placer fields began- There was such an  accession to the number of vesesls running in  and out of this port that it more than overtaxed  the very meagre dock facilities then in existence.  There were but few warehouses on the waterfront at that time, and but three small wharves in  commercial use apart from the C. P. R. wharves,  and the later did not then present the unbroken  line of dockage, with accommodation for ten or a  dozen liners as it does now..  Shipping has since expanded as a result of  increased transcontinental railway connections  being established, so that today Vancouver is an  ocean port of no mean commercial status. Today,  too, her future is recognized and acknowledged.  Vancouver is" destined to be one of the few really  great world ports, an entrepet of trade and commerce, not alone for British Columbia, for "Western Canada, but for the whole Dominion, and,  indeed; the Pacific trade metropolis ofjthe British  Empire.  Here is a natural centre, a meeting place for  transportation lines, both transcontinental and  trans-oceanic. Every Canadian railway line is  now engaged in building direct to Vancouver, if  not already built. In less than fifteen years the  port of Vancouver has grown from its small beginnings as just outlined, to a total annual tonnage  of shipping of 10,000,000. Many lines of steamers  making regular sailing dates to and from Vancouver are included in the list, and all the important lines of cargo-cariers are so included.  More than that, every important line of steamers  engaged in Pacific ocean traffic, is now completing arrangements to include Vancouver in its  ports of call- The expected advent of the Panama Canal as a factor in ocean commerce is the  chief stimulus at the present moment. This same  stimulus has been making itself apparent in the  railway activity which has for the past five or  ten years had Vancouver for its focal point.  Before digressing from the position of Vancouver as a port, there is one point of such im-  way, and^^rlong^ yearsJt was the onl^ line serving Vancouver;T Today the^"C^adian Northern^  and the Grand Trunk Pacific are completing  construction, which will bring those other two  Canadian transcontinental into this port direct.  The Pacific Great Eastern Railway, by means  of which the Grand Trunk Pacific is to reach  Vancouver from Fort George, is yet an independent railway. As at first projected, it was to extend some 450 miles from Vancouver to Fort  'George, but in the recent session of the Provincial Legislature a further grant of aid to this  provincial project was made, enabling its main  line to be extended northerly into the British Columbia division of the great Peace River Valley.  This extension is to be approximately 350 miles,  and as other lines are being built from Edmonton northwesterly to the s&me district, they will  naturally converge, and another outlet be thus  provided.  The Canadian railways are not alone in their  judgment that the port of Greater Vancouver is  a world-centre of the highest commercial importance. All the American railways covering  the western half of the Republic and connecting  east and south, are impressed with the imperative call on them to plan for entry here and for  facilities to enable them to share in the commerce  which is.gravitating this way.  The Great Northern Railway has for some  years had its own line and service into Vancouver,  and the Northern Pacific, which has for years  also entered over the C. P. R. from Mission Junction, is preparing to use the Great Northern  tracks from the International boundary. The  Great Northern Railway terminals in Vancouver  include one of the finest permanent wharves on  the Pacific Coast, now completed in Vancouver .  harbor; the reclamation of a large tide flat area  at the head of False Creek, and completely surrounding that location; the erection of a terminal  depot at the cost of $1,500,000 on a portion of its  re-claimed land; and lastly, the making of a great  subway under the high ground at the east end of  False Creek, whence its tracks enter the city at  grade from the New "Westminster side of the  Fraser Valley-  The Canadian Northern Pacific is now engaged on reclamation work which will build up  the central portion of the head of False Creek,  wall, on the waterfront west of Main street,  do ~WwajT withTtlie bridgiFehtiwl^^mOr  completely transform that central point ofj  city s business section.  It is fitting, perhaps, to close a review of 'I  way facilities of Vancouver with a reference  the vast projects of the oldest of Canada's trJ  continental lines.   The Canadian Pacific Raitf  is deeply concerned in,the welfare of Vancou]  with whose interests that of the great railway]  so closely bound up.   At a time when other  ditions were by no means encouraging, the  R. Co. has gone ahead with enormous expef  ture in Vancouver and in British Columbia,  nearing completion    is    the new depot on  Burrard Inlet waterfront at   a   cost   of  $1,000,000.   At the same moment the magnifij  new Vancouver hotel is taking shape on the'  of the original structure, most of which has  torn down and removed-    When entirely  pleted, this massive and imposing pile will re  sent a capital investment of close to $2,500,C  Can any but the most hopeless pessimist'  on such giant projects in process of being cat  out���������and of being carried out spiritedly  time when commercial conditions the world  have been anything but cheering���������without ci^  ing at least a glimpse of the splendid vhj  which have been such clear cut pictures of  couver's future supremacy as to induce I  hard-headed captains of finance to pour mil.j  in a golden shower of construction cost intc  Pacific port of Canada?  B. C. Electric Railway.  One very important factor in the transpc  tion facilities of Vancouver and the lower  land of British Columbia is the service sup^  by the B- C. Electric Railway Company.   Ii  small degree has the prosperity of Vancoj  and its rapid advancement to the front ranj  Canadian cities been due to the enterprise  progress made by the B. C. Electric, in kee_  pace with, and even, a litle in advance of, I  city's growth.   As the city's population has]  panded, and reached out into the outlying  tricts the service has been extended to meet,  demands, until all parts of the Burrard Peninsl  extending from Burrard Inlet to the Fraser Ri|  and from New Westminster    to    the    Gt  Georgia, are pretty fairly well supplied with t\  service. awrn  ILUIJULUH  JPnda^June^jLgl^  THE WESTERN CALL.'  Faweoiwer Harbour���������  Owe of the Finest in the World  By A. Heurtley Reed, Harbour Master  [IE FINEST HARBOUR IN _?HE WORLD"  i Is a phrase often used in connection with  [many harbours. It has been frequently  [used in respect to Vancouver harbour by  Jlinner speakers and enthusiasts, but to  ter harbour the superlative "finest" is  Tie question may well be asked���������in what  [3 such and such harbour the finest? The  m which go to make a really good harbour  [varied. Harbours like horses have various  I .s that make for superiority���������the same  [jsed for steeplechasing would not be used  Lvy draught���������so harbours may excel in  llifferent ways, but when speaking gener-  [fine harbours the following conditions are  less fulfilled: (1) Size of the harbour;  5ree of shelter; (3) Navigability; (4)  ige facilities; (5) Wharf accommoda-  [6) Meteorological conditions; (7) Rail-  nlities, and last but by no means least,  Organization.  in consideration of these qualities that  Writer's opinion that, while not using the  degree, whereas Vancouver is so sheltered that it  may be said that no hindrance to shipping has  ever been experienced on account of wind or sea.  The navigation facilities are of the very best;  the harbour is open all the year round, and entirely free from the presence of ice in any shape  or form. There are practically no rocks or dangerous shoals in the harbour or the approaches  thereto. The depth of water is sufficient for  ships of the largest class known, False Creek  alone being shallow, and this is being dredged to  a,depth of 21 feet at low water, and is, moreover, at the present time extensively used for  mill properties and towing traffic.  The anchorage in the harbour is excellent,  the bottom being principally mud.   As the shipping increases more use may be  anchorage, and cargo discharged  for distribution at various centres.  The wharf facilities are at present sufficient  for the needs of the harbour, but are lacking in  up to date construction. In this matter Vancouver falls behind the standard of a first-class  made of the  into lighters  the American transcontinental lines. The Pacific Great Eastern have .their line built along  the north shore of the. harbour, and there is a  line partly built, running round the head of the  Inlet at Port Moody, and other railway corporations are seeking entry into Vancouver.  The next and perhaps the most vital consideration is the organization of the harbour. The,  Vancouver Harbour Act requires the appointment of commissioners to undertake the responsible duties of managing and controlling the harbour, the building up and organizing of which  is a problem that only those" conversant with the  work can appreciate, the objects being to encourage and promote trade and commerce, to  defend the rights of the public against any encroachment and to police and supervise the various interests. Bylaws and regulations must be  enforced, and where these are designed wisely  and to meet a specific need, no hardship need be  felt, unless it is by those who would disregard  the interests of the public while serving their own  ends.  With the expansion of shipping from the  Port of Vancouver consequent upon the advent of the Panama Canal, there is also to be  taken into consideration the influence of the  changed trade conditions upon importations.  Two-fold will be the effect. Rail or water transportation is largely influenced by traffic being  available both ways. The grain cars will not return-empty to the western provinces from the  Coast, land the vessels coming for grain will not  come in ballast.   Merchandise   for   use in the  Company, and   the   Johnson Wharf Company,  while the New England Fish Company and other  industries have their private dock facilities.  Government Dock Being Built.  East of the Sugar Refinery wharf is the site  of the splendid wharf being constructed by the  Dominion Government. The first unit of this  dock and site is estimated at $1,250,000, and later  it is the intention to increase the size of the structure. That this large public expenditure has  been set apart for Vancouver is largely due to the  energy and efforts of H. H. Stevens, M.P., who  has'devoted himself to impressing on the Government the very great importance of this port and  the necessity of giving it substantial assistance.  Another important matter brought forward to  active stage through Mr. Stevens' efforts is the  formation of a Harbour Commisison for Vancouver. This body has been in existence for a  year now, and its plans for harbour improvement  are well on the way to perfection, though not yet  announced- The Dominion Government has recognized the necessity of spending a great deal of  money in the improvement of the facilities of  the Port of Vancouver, to prepare for the opening of the Panama Canal and the consequent revelation in trade which is bound to follow that  event.  While improvement of Burrard Inlet, as Vancouver's main harbour, is being attended to, other  sections of the waterfront facilities of the port  have also been taken care of. False Creek, the  second harbour, as it were, an arm of English  Bay, which bisects the business portion of the  pilll  _1__I__^&$������1  ______&15W  ^^^^ __iV_  I_-Smr  <t>^&&*&%  ������_4&_PPr  l!_ft .r"'  __M  (e pore-Front Iff Canada's Metropolitan Cities  V9J&&*'**  . e of a harbour can be estimated, and it  Itive ^terST'' thTVfinesTin "the^world,"it^  (logically shown that in view of all na-  .onditions Vancouver Harbour can cer-  >e ranked as one of the very finest.

Hong Kong for example  I'tered all round, yet it not infrequently  Is that ships of all classes have been driven  jre during typhoons; sometimes totally  M, and many thousands of lives lost. Many  lost prominent harbours suffer in a lesser  port, although the Dominion Government, as  well as'mas^  this state of affairs by building wharves that will  compare favorably with those of the most modern  harbours in the world.  The Meteorological conditions of Vancouver  are extremely favourable. Storms are practically unknown. There are no periodical disturbances such as are variously called typhoons, cyclones, or hurricanes, which are all of the same  order, all storms being of the "cyclonic" form.  These storms, while causing widespread distraction, occasion considerable inconvenience in the c  manner of guarding against them in regions where  they occur. A glance at the meteorological records of Vancouver shows this port to be exceptionally free from strong winds. Accurate records of wind velocity "Were not taken until a few  years ago, and the greatest velocity for any one  hour is recorded on December 31st, 1912, when  thirty miles an hour was registered. Of course  gusts of wind may have reached 50 or 60 miles  per hour, but 30 miles is the greatest record for  any one hour, the next greatest being very much  below this. The total average of wind per hour  for the year 1912 was 3.3 miles, and for the year  1913 the average was 2.9 miles. When it is  understood that in Victoria, for example, the  average is double this amount, the sheltered condition of Vancouver is apparent.  The tides in Vancouver are moderate, an average rise and fall of less than 12 feet���������extremes  being in the region of 14 feet���������-this tide being an  advantage, as from a sanitary point of view the  motion of the water prevents stagnation and too  great an accumulation of filth.  1 The geographical position of the harbour is  excellent, being the most southerly part of the  Province of British Columbia, and within 25 miles,  of the United States boundary line, and it is the'  first port on the mainland of the Pacific Coast  of Canada that vessels would make coming up  from the Panama Canal, Australia or other southern ports.  Railways���������Vancouver is the Pacific terminus  of the Canadian Pacific Railway; also the Canadian Northern Railway constructing its terminus here at the head of False Creek. The Grand  Trunk Pacific will also establish here, and the  Great Northern Railway already run several  trains a day into Seattle, thug connecting up with  Western provinces now imported all the way by  rail will come by ship to Vancouver and be transferred to the railways as return cargo interchanged for the wheat. Raw materials for manufacture here and shipment to the prairie provinces will also form part of the importations.  Other products of British Columbia and of the  West will also find outlet to the world markets  because of the increase in shipping. The tide of  commerce is destined to set in steady flow  through the Port of Greater Vancouver, and to  increase in volume by reason of the Panama  Canal, which will bring Vancouver from five  thousand to seven thousand miles closer to the  ports of both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.  Harbour Facilities Existing and in Prospect  The first wharves on Vancouver harbour were  those of the Hastings sawmill, and they are still  in commission, as vessels regularly load lumber  cargoes there for export to every part of the  world. The present wharf facilities are such  that the city has every reason to be proud of  them. Extending in unbroken frontage for over  two miles, the docks of this port begin at the  west end with those of the Canadian Pacific Railway, where, with three piers now extending into  the channel, and others in contemplation, accommodation is furnished for. many large liners at a  time. Recently not less than nine of the splendid  steamers of the C. PR. Pacific service were  docked in Vancouver at once. These ranged from  the magnificent Empress of Asia, vying in size  and appointment with the best and biggest liners  of the Atlantic coast, to the speedy and yachtlike  Princess Patricia, engaged in summer daylight  run across the Gulf of Georgia to Nanaimo. Passenger steamers for all coast traffic and vessels  suited to the combined passenger and freight service to up-coast points are also included in the  fleets of the C P. R. The Grand Trunk Pacific  has a number of handsome steamers in the service between Vancouver and Prince Rupert, and  the company has built a splendid dock here for  handling its trade. The Great Northern Railway  has built at Heatley Avenue a modern dock, all  of concrete and steel, at a cost of over a million  dollars, and as its line of railway is connected  up, the expectation is justified that very soon its  steamers will be calling in this port regularly.  The intervening space between the railway docks  is filled with such large dock and shipping firms  as Evans, Colman & Evans, the Union Steamship  city, and has long been the centre of many of the  -industries requiringwaterfrontage, is-now-having its channel improved by dredging so that vessels may enter and leave at any stage of tide.  In conclusion it may be fairly claimed that in  view of the foregoing analysis of conditions at  Vancouver, the harbour may be fairly classed as  "One of the finest in the world," and it would;  appear to be in the interest of all governing  bodies and private interests associated with Vancouver to assist and support the Harbour Commissioners by every means in their power, regardless  of political opinions or affiliations. It is only in  this way that the port can be built up and the  prosperity of the City and suburbs secured. The  harbour being the main asset of the city, it������is  fair to say "No harbour, no Vancouver." That  the harbour, even in its present unimproved state,  may rank as a great port, it may be shown that  in the year endng March 31st, 1913, the number  of vessels entering the port was 2477, with a net  tonange of 2,440,4.57 tons, the amount of cargo  handled from overseas being 1,277,216 tons.  These figures will J_o considerably augmented  when grain flows through Vancouver to European  and Oriental ports.  THE PAVING OF BODWELL ROAD  Continued from Page 4  awake on the subject of letting of contracts, and  will readily perceive the points taken in this article that mere iowness of tender price does not  necessarily ensure the best bargain in paving contract. There are, as we have submitted, other  points worthy of consideration.

Such a drink is the genuine  Tansan  from the volcanic spring in  Japan.  Doctors recommend Tansan,  because it is the softest and  most digestible of all waters,  as well as on account of its  valuable tonic properties.  This explains why Tansan  drinkers enjoy better  health than those who  habitually use common waters.

I^.^M|M^..^..;4.^Mi.^>^..ti4t4^.H>4wH<4>^^<,'I''l'^'V'^'l,'I'4''V  A STRIKING INCIDENT  This is the first time we have noticed this in-  .ident in print. If true it deserves to be immortalized :  "When, in 1900, foreigners in Peking were besieged by Boxers inside the walls of the legation quarter, the generals of Tientsin held a council of war to determine whether the international  irmy should march to the relief of the imperilled  liplomatic and missionary families in the capital.  )ne after another of the commanders���������British,  rerman, French, Bussian and Japanese���������rose and  stated solemnly why an attempt to advance then  mst necessarily be futile, the forces under their  .ommand were insufficient to make headway  fgainst the hordes of Chinese believed to be  blocking the road to Peking. After all the rest  iad spoken, General Adna B. Chaffee, the American commander, arose to utter a single sentence:  "I desire to say that the American troops will  larch for Peking at 9:30 tomorrow morning"  And march they did.   But when they marched  111 the other forces in the international column  irere afoot with them, and they found .the way  lo Peking almost unobstructed and were able  [0 raise the siege without a single serious bat-  ie.���������The Continent.  tEBUKINO A BLASPHEMER  ALTHOUGH A GREAT KING  Von Zealand, Frederick the Great's greatest  general, was a Christian and the king was a  .offer.   One day the king was making his coarse  )kes about the Saviour and the whole place was  [inging with guffaws of laughter.    It was too  |iuch for Von Zealand^^the general that had won  umerous and great battles for Prussia and had  Peally put the crown on the king's brow.  j    With German militariness he stood   up   and  [aid, amid the hush of flatterers shaking his gray  jead solemnly:    "Sire, you know I have, not  .ared death, you know I have fought for you in  lirty-eight battles, and   thirty-eight   battles   I  nave won.   Sire, my hairs are gray; I am an old  lan; I shall sooon have to go^ into the presence  >f a greater than thou, the mighty God who  jkaved me from my sin, the Lord Jesus Christ,  irhom you are blaspheming against.   Sire, I can-  lot stand to hear my Saviour spoken against.   I  falute thee, Sire, as'an-old man who loves the  Wiour, on the edge of eternity." _  Frederick the Great, with a trembling voice  wd:   "General Von Zealand, I beg your par-  ion; I beg your pardon."    The company dispersed in silence, and the king reflected as never  [���������efore on that Greater One, whom his general  jverenced, even above himself.  THE REAL KINO.  The French king Henry III. said to Palissy,  the Huguenot potter, one day, that he should be  compelled to give him up to his enemies unless  he should change his religion. "You have often  said to me, sire," was the undaunted reply, "that  you pitied me; but as for me, I pity you, who  have given utterance to such words as 'I shall be  compelled.' These are unkingly words, and I  say to you, in royal phase, that neither the Guises  nor all your people nor yourself, are-able to compel an humble manufacturer of earthenware to  bend his knee before statues."  NOT ASHAMED  General Henry Havelock was told, when only  a lieutenant, that his religion would prevent his  rising, for the authorities did not believe that  any one could be at the same time a saint and a  soldier. He replied: "I humbly trust that in  this great matter I should not changetmy_ opinions  and practices though it rained garters and coronets as the reward of apostasy-"  WESTERN EDUCATION NOW  NECESSARY IN CHINA  For thousands of years the Chinese had no  education except in their own ancient learning.  Recently they have begun to see something better; and now those applying for public positions  must be examined in Western knowledge. Formerly only a few were educated; but now schools  are being built everywhere. In all the government schools the Mandarin dialect must be merged  into one. Besides the common schools, colleges,  normal schools, manual training and agricultural  institutions, mechanical and electrical academies  are springing up all over this vast empire with  its 400,000,000 people-  THE PAGEANT ENTERTAINMENT  On Saturday tickets will be on sale for the  great entertainment at the Horseshow Building  on the evening of June 11th in connection with  the "Pageant of Vancouver."  These tickets will be on sale at the music store  of Messrs. Mason & Beisch. Seats can also be reserved at the Pageant office, corner of Pender  and Cambie streets, over Edgett's old store. Reservations can also be made at the Pageant office,  on Hastings street and at the Linguistic press on  Richard street." A large-demand for tickets is  anticipated so applications should be made at  .'once. . ''������������������.'"'   ���������������������������' '-'���������.' ���������'������������������; ,'. ��������� ���������  The entertainment will include singing by the  Western Triple Choir under Mr. George Taggart.  This choir will be augmented by the Collingwood  Choral Society and other societies. There will be  altogether one hundred voices.  The ode " Floreat Vancouver, "an original  composition, words by Felix Penne, music by Dr.  CroWther, will be produced for the first time,  this promises to be quite a musical event in Vancouver.  The choir will also sing the "Storm," "Mac-  gregor 's Gathering,'' arid other pieces- These will  be very picturesque from a musical standpoint.  The Seaforth Highlanders band will.appear  and play a fine selection of music, including  "Reminiscences of All Nations," as arranged by,  Godfrey.  The Pipers' band will give selections of Scotch  bagpipe music, and' there will be sword dances,  Scotch reels and other national dances.  The Indian hand will appear, and there will,  be Indian dances and games, for which prizes will  be offered.  Miss Susanne Sicklemore, a pupil of Pavlowa,  who has just come from England, will give, some  solo dances of a most interesting character.  A'troupe of Spanish dancers will appear in  Spanish costumes.  Mr. Charles Thomson, the Shakespearian actor, dressed in complete armour, will give a scene  "Before Agincourt," supported by a body of  troopers, and an athletic scene will be given under  the direction of Mr. Barney Goss, who will arrange a fine wrestling match. A grand tableau  will be arranged under the direction of Mr. Harold Nelson. This will show "The Queen of the  Pageant," supported by a number of symbolical  and allegorical figures, and this promises to be a  scene of great beauty.  The back tiers of the platform will be filled by  school children all carrying flowers.  K  THE JEWS IN PALESTINE  It is estimated that there are today not less  than 150,000 Jews in Palestine five times as many  as. there were thirty years ago. The agricultural  land is passing into the hands of Jewish buyers,  individuals or syndicates.  THE U. S. PEACE FLAG  The first ship to pass through the Panama  canal will have at its masthead the peace flag of  the United States���������the stars and stripes with a  border of white. The ensign will then be placed  in the National Museum at Washington.  MASTERS*  LTD.

WEUi is down 1742 feet, going through the hard  dark shale formation which always forms the cap over the OIJj SANJ^S, and a big flowing  well may be brought in by boring only a few feet more.  AS SOON AS OIL IS STRUCK you will not be able to buy shares for less than 10 times-  the present price, if at all.  THE PRESENT ALLOTMENT is only to provide money to finish the well. Practically all  the vast sum already expended has been furnished by three men arid now the people of VANCOUVER are given the opportunity to come in and share in the tremendous profits in this  OIL WELL.  BEAR IN MIND the Company controls approximately 2500 acres of Oil Rights.  REMEMBER this property is within fifty miles of VANCOUVER, and is within 300 yards of  the Railroad Station.  REMEMBER, THIS OIL WELL is several hundred miles nearer VANCOUVER and tide-  water than other oil properties now being offered. It is also 1742 feet nearer to OIL than  many companies that have sold hundreds of thousands of dollars',worth of stock.  THIS OIL WELL and the property controlled by the Company should be worth many millions of dollars the moment OIL is struck���������yet its capitalization is only $500,000. Compare  this with other oil companies and you can judge the fortunes that will be made by Vancouver investors.  Here is an Oil Proposition right'near Vancouver. It has the endorsement of some of the  best Oil Experts in the country.  The Officers and Directors are men of integrity and high standing. The three men who have  already advanced about $40,000, live right here in Vancouver. No Oil Property on Earth has  ever had any better indication of oil than this 1742 foot OIL WELL, right near Vancouver.  I have carefully investigated the reputation of the Experts and the men behind this Company.  TODAY the price of shares is only 60 cents (par value One Dollar and non-assessable).  If you want to take advantage of this extraordinary offering phone or wire your reservation  TODAY. ;   <  Remit by Post Office Order, Express Order or Bank Draft.
