S. A. Official, Robert Steta  H5HTS OF GOUTS POUCH  . ; - H ,r  ft*  % We read in the reports of Mr. Gold's speeches  that .he has now abandoned his opposition to the  Main street paving contract in deference to the  expressed wishes of the workingmen-This is so  far good and we lire'glad to learn of Mr. Gold's  change bf mind. But the results of the cruel Gobi  I policy,go on. Because of Mr. Gold's desire to  ' keep assessments off his large vacant property on  Main street the work that would have meant  comfort to at least 400 or,500 families in South  Vancouver all through the winter was helcl up  for four months.' No useful purpose was served  by this���������ronly added legal expenses and* great  civic unrest and now Mr. Gold announces calmly  and complacently the withdrawal of his opposition to'the contract. Does Mr. Gold never have '  any visions of what his poliey ^nay have meant  to some of the homes made desol ;te by,it! If not '  let the Western Call draw aside the curtain for  him.  In South Vancouver last week (and in Mr-  Gold own ward, at that) a home has been robbed  of its most precious inmate. A beautiful young  girl, 15 years of age, has disappeared, leaving no  trace or clue to her whereabouts. The family she  belonged to has been one of those that have suffered great privations this winter, owing to lack  of work.   J  /'Leaving her mother in bed, this young girl  went on her way to a neighboring store and encountered a well dressed young wojnan, who  spoke to her, and-tb whom she opened her heart,  tellipg her Df all the privations she jand all her  family had been through* An invitation to par-  take of a good meal in the city, to be followed by  an auto ride, was gladly accepted. Before re-  turning home a further invitation to meet again  the next day was also accepted.  "The girl dn returning home was full of the  v kindness of her newly found friend, and her  v mother, being unsuspicious, allowed her to go  and meet this friend the next day.   Since then  this young daughter, but 15 years of age, has  vanished, also too, probably, for ever."  This story has been handed in to the office of  the Western Call and absolutely vouched for by  one of South Vancouver's most reputable citizens, and one who has been personally active in  relieving the distress of many during the nasi  winter. The^trutb of it is quite beyond suspicion,'  and we present it as one of the results of last  winter's lack of work.  None of'us know the results that may follow  the adoption of anyrpolicy we may.advocate, but  we believe^ the jtonnection is here close enough  and elear~enough to penetrate even the hidebound conscience of Edward Gold.  mi mm for gouts poucy  ,   -   ��������� i        -��������� j  The slush fund is at-work in South Vancouver. The interests that are holding great vacant  properties are anxious to lessen their burdens*'  "Whilst prices of real estate were increasing by  leaps and bounds it was easy to pay taxes. The  sale of but a fraction would provide the necessary amount. But now it is a different story.  Nothing can be sold except at ruination prices,  an<d the taxes are eating up former profits and  threatened tax sales hold out visions of disaster!  The Gold property is behind in taxes^nearly  $7,Q0O^it; is said, and this year- wili*brihg the  arrears lip to, $10,000. Others are in the same  boat; and with the addition of assessments' for  needed improvements it look! as if some of the  large real estate speculators would have to drop.  'their holdings unless a Reeve sympathetic to  their ailing interests is elected. In furtherance  of this, quite a landed interest combine has been  formed, and a "campaign fund" got together;  Whether this is large enough to buy the needed  majority will only be known on Saturday night,  but evidences abound that it ipi at work.  V'All kinds of rumors as to the future- "Gold  Vpolicy," if elected, are about.    One is that, if  elected, Mr. Gold will erect a large hotel oh the  "Goldlots," and throw South Vancouver open to  the liquor traffic. v ��������� ,  y v Another is that if Mr. Gold is elected the bank  %ill at once refuse further accommodation-  Still  tanothef is that Eutledge, Winram, Stevens and  ; Rowlings will immediately resign if Mr. Gold is  elected.   No loss this to Mr. Gold, howeyer,^ for  his opinion of these gentlemen has been given  jpublicly::  -       ^Jv.V."'";-5    " ���������;��������� ���������������������������    V   ' -; - ��������� V;;'-"..;  VMr. Eutledge is V',^'Crab/r.:^.  Mr. Winram is a "Monstrosity."  Mr. Stevens is a "Crawfish."  Mr., Rowlings is a "Piittjrface." v  According to Mr. Gold, and by the same authority 2o>. Edward Gold is the watch-dog of  South Vancouver treasury.  The Western Call does not know: what Mr.  /  ���������^������^_^nOl^,  _������_<������������������  JAMES A. KERB  Good Advice for South Vancouver  Jamei A- l^err, twice R^ve of South Vancouver, and by all odds the most efficiont  lUeve South Vancouver has ever had, a man of sterling honesty and unblemished reputation,  haa intimated that he will accede to the request of hi* many friends, new and old, and allow his  name to be put in nomination for Reeve at the- coming election on May 10.  Mr. South Vancouver voter don't be carried away hy the turgid eloquence of JBddie Gold,  or hy the seductive figures of expenses he has saved the municipality hy his policy.. Any man  can-save money by ^discharging all his help and stopping all Ids work, and if that reactionary  policy is what South Vancouver wants, then vote for Gold.. But first read the following good advice given hy Frof. Swanson, of the economic branch of Queen's University, Toronto:      - -  "Provincial and federal governments should  seize tbe occasion to erect permanent public  works. It is a totally erroneous idea that induces a policy of parsimony during a period of '  industrial declension. Great public works should  be pushed forward so that labor may find employment, the market be steadied and credit sustained- "  ' Retrenchment merely accelerates the difficulties  ' of the situation."  Remember, Also, Eddie Gold, if elected, will be your representative socially as well as  Sublicly���������that your vote places a man of bis reputation as head of the municipal family. Reraem-  er, also, the record of the past three months of cruelty and insult to those who had faithfully  served the municipality.  aa  'Gold will do if elected Reeve, but if what he has  done as "councillor of Ward 5 is any criterion,  then nine-tenths of all the money spent in the  municipality will be spent "on the Gold Lots."  Mr, Gold is reported as having said: "They,can  form fours and fives against me, but I'll hold  .them.',' Meaning of course that only-Gold will  count on South Vancouver's council if Gold is  elected Reeve.;  South Vancouver knows then Swhat it is up  against, and what we must urgently desire is that  every voter should register his and her vote.  WALKED TO PRINCE RUPERT  Prince Rupert, May\%.y���������-By reaching here yesterday from Spokane travelling the whole distance of 1490 miles on foot, Mr. E. N. Clarke has  won a bet of $500- He made a wager with Capt.  Larson, the Nome millionaire, that he could cover  the distance in 60 days.   It took him 52Jdays.  In China there are 2,955 Christian Congregations, 548 ordained Chinese pastors, 5,364 unor-  dained workers, and 47.0,000 members of evangelical churches. V      V 3  The Japanese community in Fresno, Cal., protested against the Chinese gambling dens and secured municipal action closing them.  In 1870 there were only 55 Japanese inthe  United States; today there are more than 93,000.  Oeptb of Wells  A great deal is being mate out of the re-  measurement of wells during the Gold campaign  and there is an appearance of truth to those  who have had no experience in the ways of  abandoned drill-holes.  On Wednesday night, .at Katenberg Hall, ex-  Reeve Kerr punctured this campaign argument  by reading a letter from Mr. T. D. Jackson, of  Toronto, who lived near the site of the well and  knew the drillers who worked on it  "As to the depth, I was satisfied they went  500 ieet, "says the letter, **4aind"am not at all  surprised to hear the well is bottomed at 300  feet or less. The balance of the depth has filled  with sand that filtered through the water slots  which were cut after the well was finished."  These slots in the well casing,! the letter explains, were cut to allow the entry of water.  South Vancouver Women Voters'  Association  The women voters of South Vancouver held  a meeting in Ash's Hall, Fraser Street, on Wednesday afternoon and decided by an overwhelming majority to support ex-Reeve Kerr. We  understand that only two women were opposed.  CANADA A WORLD POWER    j\  Robert Stein, of the Department of Commerce^  Washington, D. C, lecturing .last week in Strathcona Hall, Montreal, said: -* , "  "Canada holds the world's peace in the palm  of her hand" , t *-*  r By Canada'8 expressing the desire that Greenland become an integral part of the Dominion,  tbe speaker contended, a process' of exchange of  territory, on the part of several great powers would,  be set in, motion,' whereby friendly relatknls  would be established ultimately resulting in al-'  liance between/Great Britain, Germany, Stance  and the United States, and universal peace as'������  consequence.'  Denmark Would Cede Greenland  Denmark, i anxious to get rid of Greenland as,  being more of an- encumbrance than an asset-���������  on account of the fact that its trade divided up ~  among four countries is mot profitable, as it  would be under single control���������would willingly  cede this territory to Great Britain, were Ganaoa;  to express a desire to possess it. Canada," by a,  system of conservation, could make her new territory of great value as a vast fur farm, developing .  the country at the same time for its mineral resources and as a tourist resort���������for the vast  glaciers of Greenland, said Mr. Stein, have the  advantage over the Swiss ones in that .the mid- ������������������  night sun is visibleJor four months in the year.  The lecturer pointed out that England would  not permit of Greenland's cession to Germany*'  ' which country mutt, however, be satisfied in a  tangible manner of England's willingness for the  expansion of the Fatherland before entering into  alliance1 with England. Mr. Stein'#Idea would be  that England should cede some colonial possessions to Germany while Germany would, in turn,  give her Danish portion of North Schleswig back  to Penmarek, Greenland being handed over to/  the British Empire and embodied in Canada. By  this method Germany might be induced, also, to  yield to France that part of Alsace-Lorraine  where French is spoken. Thus woulcrthe apparently unalterable enmity between ''France and  Germany be done away with������ and with this enmity tbe greatest barrier to universal peace.  Would Heal Old Wounds  By further process of healing old wounds and  dividing countries on the language line, the  United States.might be brought into the great  alliance which would comprise England, Germany and France, and which alliance would assure the world supremacy of Western civilization  forever.'  l<   ."  1 *\        ' ���������*���������  $  >r.  nusv sowwjs oir Mv������g  ttt*"*ttSviVw   wO^y^d  O^ OS^mafmOmOw OVO/ w OmS^mmmj  South Fort George.���������At the Foley, Welch &  Stewart camp, on the Nechaco river, workmen  are now busily engaged in preparing the company's three steamboats, the Conveyor, Operator  and Robert C Hammond, for launching.

"Dr. Mailer has Just come down,  Mr. Clyde," he aald, "and would you  ���������pare him a moment In the reception  room?"  I turned to Bvelyn.  "Shall we have him tn heve?" I  askedV And at her consent, Checkabeedy, a moment later, led the doctor  to us���������a very changed doctor, a very  decidedly leas cocksure doctor than  X had encountered earlier that morning in his FIfty-ilxth street office.  Even ln hia bow to Bvelyn I detected the shamefaced humiliation he was  suffering.  "We take off our hats to your perspicacity, Miss Grayson," he said,  confirming my reading. "I had never  thought such a modern real-life in*  istanee of Lesurques and Duboso possible."  "Then you admit?" I asked, smiling^  "Candidly. There is no question.;  Yet I could have sworn yesterday that,  jt was attending Mr. Cameron.

"Tou gave no sign that yoq knew?"  Bvelyn asked.  , "Not the slightest.   I pretended tbat  i believed him Mr. Cameron."  "But Mr. Bryan must^ have���������" I  began.  "On the contrary," said tbe doctor,  "Mr. Bryan knows' him only as the  Mr. Cameron be has nursed from the  first. Be would be the last man to'indicate to his patient a knowledge of  anything untoward."  '-'Miss Graysou and I were Just-discussing a course of action when you  arrived, Doctor," I explained, "but bad  reached no conclusion. Last night I  arranged with Yup Sing, wbo ia probably tbe most prominent and best educated Chinaman in New York, and bis  friend the Chinese Vice Consul to  meet me here today at noon. Tbe  chances are they will bring a United  States deputy marshal with them,  with a warrant for McNish's arrest.'  Now if we give him up, what will be  tbe result? He will still maintain tbat  he Is Cameron in spite ot our knowledge to tbe contrary. Yup Sing and  his clan will Insist that be is right  and that w������ are wrong, and our  chances of finding Cameron will dwindle. It Isn't reasonable to expect tbat  those engaged in the abduction plot  will confess to their error end inform  us as to Cameron's place of detention.  Is it?"  Dr. Massed knitted his brow behind  tbe bow of bis glasses and pursed bis  thin lips.  "We are certainly confronted by a  very trying complication," he admitted  with characteristic gravity.  "Miss Grayson has suggested tbat  we send McNish abroad���������at once, on  a steamer sailing this morning."  "Mr. Bryan could go with him,"  Bvelyn volunteered.  "If the United States authorities  have a warrant for him," the physician argued, "that would only delay  matters. They would arrest him on*  landing."  There was no question as to the accuracy of this deduction.  "And the newspapers," I added,  '"would be sure to publish columns of  speculation. . . . If we could only  wring an admission from McNish it  would simplify matters."  "Isn't there soma one you could  confrbnt him with?" Dr. Massey asked, and hope rose within me at the  suggestion.  "As far as I can make out. from  what O'Hara tells me," was my rejoinder, "the police have in custody  now the Eurasian cock who, I believe,  has been McNish's Nemesis these sir-  teen years. If we could bring those  two miscreants face to face, McNish  "Have McNish taken then you  mean?"  "Or have the Buraslsn brought  here."  And so. ultimately through the of-  m floes of O'Hara, who all this time had  been awaiting me ln the tonneau of  my car which still stood at tln> door,  John Soy, accompanied by two plain  clothes men from the Detective Bureau, was brought from the Tombs to  tbat sumptuous home on upper Fifth  avenue.  I say "ultimately" because lid coming was delayed beyond all patience.  Bour after hour passed. . Tho morning dragged by with periodlo telephone excuses from O'Han. The  hearing was in progress before the  police magistrate. ... Soy had been  held for the grand Jury. ... The magistrate would have to sign a permit  and he could not be approached until  .he came off the bench. ... Soy had  .gone to the Tombs. .. .- The warden  was at luncheon and could not be  seen for half an hour.  Meanwhile Dr. Massey, Impelled by  the necessities of his practice, had  departed, and Yup Sing and'tbe vice  consul, Chen Mok, had arrived and  been relegated to the reception room.  To my relief, Checkabeedy reported  that they were unaccompanied. Mean-  While, too, Evelyn had received a call  from Miss Clement' and had learned  with some dismay tbat the missionary's HWated informant bad left with  her no more definite information regarding Cameron's transjjortation  than that which she had already conveyed to us.  "We're Just starting In a tulcab,"  came at length from O'Hara over the  wire. "We'll be there In less titan half  an hour.'*/  ,  .ind In iess than half an hour'they  came, an Ignoble; vulgar quartette  against a stately, pompom background.  I met them in tbe great hall, standing before tbe broad, sculptured c$lm-  ney-piece.  The three detectives were mere'or  less of "a piece���������gross, coatw, ted-  faced men whose bands and feet  seemed out of all proportion to their  slse, bulky as It was. Of tbe three  CBsrs* possibly because of familiarity, struck me as tbe least offensive.  But after all it was not the detectives  wbo claimed and held mr chief interest, but the shrunken, shadow-like  creature they bad in charge, whom I  recognised instantly as tbe aupposed  castaway tbe Sibylla bad picked up/  that warm October day somewhere  east of Nantucket���������the slinking figure  I bid followed .through the pre_s of  Doyers street almost to my death.  My conjecture was thus in part verified; John Soy and Peter Johnson  were the same, and It only remained*  now Ito prove that the reBt of my  guess was as well founded.  Stepping to 'the door of the reception room, I made brief apology for'  mr detention end-bade my two-Cath-  ayan visitors Join tbe others.  "I thlnk/Mr. Yup." I observe*, "tbat  we bave here tbe Eurasian cook of.  the Sable lorcha about whom you;  told me."  I suppose I was foolish enough to  fancy tbat tbe merchant would at once  make the identification I deiired., I  should have known better. In subtlety we are no match for tbe ancient  race to which Yup Sing belonged, as  was evidenced by tbe absolute impene-  tratlon of his fanner, as, after gazing sharply at John Soy, he turned to  me with a visage as blank as the marble wall, and, In a voice without a  shade of inflection, said:  ��������� "I do not know him. I have never  seen him until now."  Had a white man dared to make  such denial, 1 should have laughed in  his face. But the dignity of the  Oriental, the perfect aplomb of his  manner. Including an utter absence of  all that could be construed ai feigning, forbade such rejoinder; yet I  knew that he had lied.  "Come, gentlemen," I aald, denying  myself even the satisfaction- of - a  shoulder shrug, "and we shall decide  whether the man upstairs ii the villain you claim he Is, or���������" but I was  ln no mood to finish the sentence.  The seven of us, crowding into the  elevator, were lifted to the floor above,  where I preceded the others to the  door of what we .were wprtt to call  CameYon's bedchamber. There I  paused.  "Pardon me Just a moment," I*  begged, with my hand on tbe knob,  "until I see whether everything - is  ready."  I bad instructed Mr. Bryan to have  McNish up and dressed, and I wished  to make sure that these preparations  were completed. But I waa hardly  prepared for the scene which greeted  my entrance.  McNish, clothe^ ln tbe suit he had  worn when I found him, was ln the act  of closing a drawer of an old-fashioned rosewood secretary which occupied a place against the right wall,  beneath one of the medallloned windows. And the nurse waa nowhere in  eight.  fdsewooe secretary was tEeHbidrng  I place of a 38-caliber Colt, and* in all.  likelihood have had it removed before  McNish was capable of searching for  it. As it was, Mr. Bryan took no little blame upon himself for not having been the first to discover it,,  though to my mind he could hardly  be regarded as recreant in falling to  Investigate a piece of furniture of so  Intimate a character.  The notoriety consequent'upon the  murder and suicide was hideously inordinate. Inspired and stimulated by  the sensational press, which did not  hesitate to Imply what It dared not  state-openly, the currency of falsehood and misconception at one period  came close to being disastrous. As I  had foreseen, the resemblance of McNish to Cameron, coupled with the  seemingly'convincing fact that the  tragedy had occurred ln the Cameron  town houee, where the millionaire  was supposed to be convalescent,  gave excuse for persistent, iteration  of a rumor that, ln order to preserve  the fame of a man regarded as above  reproach and at the same time to protect tbe line of securities In which he  had been .Interested, the story of a  confusing likeness had been Invented.  No paper In the land would bave  had the temerity to print this as a fact,  but again and again���������silly and Impossible as. it must, bave appeared to all  thinking persons���������It was - promulgated  by innuendo and embodied in more or  less weakly-worded denials.

Strangely enough, though the whole  wretched complication had been raked  reportorlally. with a fine-tooth comb,  the kidnapping rrom the yacht had  not yet been so much as hinted at, but'  I lived, daily, ln mortal dread that it'  would be brought to light at the next,  journalistic hand-sweep.

Baying lifted ber to a couch and  rung for her maid I at once set about  doing wbat I could to restore her to  consciousness. Hut her plight was no  ordinary momentary falntness. Stubbornly she refused to respond to my-  efforts, and those of tbe maid when,  after hours it seemed, she came, were  equally unavailing.  Alarmed* I called up Pr.

"What are you doing there?" I cried,  Indignantly. "What were you looking for?" - v-  ������Even before he spoke I saw the  look of cunning come Into hia small,  furtive eyes.  "I was looking for some papers of  mine, Clyde," he answered, boldly,  and his voice was so like Cameron's  that, for just a moment, a shuddering  uncertainty'assailed me. Only the  crafty leer weighed for the truth.   ,-  "Papers of yours?" I snarled, Ignoring his familiar use of my name. "I  have the only paper yon brought into  ���������this house, Donald McNish, and that's  evidence enough to put you whew you  beyond.  Where's Mr. Bryan r '  But at tbat moment the nurse, appearing from tbe adjoining room, answered for himself, and McNish. with  a capitally assumed, nonchalance, said,  smilingly,  "I dldnt think you could be so easily Imposed upon, Clyde. The" letter  to Donald McNish wss given to me by  McNish himself. Re wanted me to  answer It   It wss his   last, request  "Silence!" I cried; and then, -Mr.  Bryan, get him into tbat chair before'  the bureau, facing the door. These'  people outside must not be kept waiting any longer." With which I tamed,  and with hand on knob once more,  paused until the nurse had rather  roughly, but In all baste, dragged bis  charge across tbe floor and fairly  flung him Into the Indicated seat  t It was not until after the Immediately succeeding occurrences that I  {learned from O'Hara what had been  ���������told to John Soy on his way up town'  in the tszicab. As I understand it,  the other detectives had Informed him  ���������that he was befog taken to this house  so that his chief accuser, who was  nltfh unto death, could make an ante-  mortem Identification. As a matter of  fart, of course, tbe situation was practically tbe reverse: We desired Soy to  identify McNish. and McNish, under  stress of the encounter, to' admit his  own Identity. The Eurasian, however,  having been thu_*mlslnformed, was at  a distinct disadvantage. So, when I  drew back the door, and he was pushed forward Into the room, instead of  seeking, he Imagined himself sought,  and with bowed head and eyes on the  floor, stood shrlnkingly ill at ease.  To this misunderstanding Is probably attributable all tbat followed. Had  8oy known that McNish was regarded, equally with himself, as an aggressor, be might have controlled bis  outbreak and permitted the law to  wreak* its tardy Justice. But 8oy did  not know, and. the tide of events met  sudden change. ^  lt*is. Indeed, scarcely conceivable,  bow rapidly It wss all enacted. For  Just % moment the weasened figure  stood still, while behind him crowded  the rest of us���������the three detectives,  the two Chinamen ������nd myself,  1 saw McNish struggle for an instant to maintain his pose of Indifference, and then I saw bU cheeks  blanch, and his little eyes widen in  craven terror as he recognised the  shabby, silent thing before him. His  lips parted, his bared teeth clicked  together, and his hands, like talons,  clutched tensely bis chair arms.  In that strained moment the room  was strangely hushed. I know I  scarcely breathed, as nervously Intent I watched those two miserable  creatures; the one keenly conscious,  the other blind to everything save the  rug pattern at his feet  Then, like a flash, Soy stole a glance  at bis supposed sccuser, and I saw  htm quiver Into steel. It ��������� was as  though sn electric bolt bsd shot  through his shrinking frame and limp;  limbs. He seemed to grow out of himself, to rise Inches taller, towering  with stiffened neck and lifted head.  To describe with any degree of scat Roosevelt Hospital. For a moment*  distressed and anxious, the names ot  other physicians eluded me. In despair, I opened the Telephone Directory, ln hope of a suggestion, and the  name of Addison leaped at me from  tbe page. To my Infinite relief he was  in his office; his electric was at tbe  door, and he would be over at once.  And it was not until ten minutes  later, when he came hurriedly Into the  room, tbat I remembered. The name,  when I saw it, had at once struck me  as familiar. I seemed to know, even;  that it belonged to a physician of  reputed high standing, yet it was only  at the Instant of his entrance, when  his penetrating steel-gray eyes drilled  Into mine, that I associated It with the  man to whom I had gone, not for any  ailment, but to learn whether my  friend, in spite of his denials, bad ever  been in China.  If .the recognition was mutual, Dr.  Addison gave no sign of it. His patient demanded and received his immediate attention. Hastily he administered a stimulating hypodermic, and  then, himself assisted in carrying her  to her room.  When he rejoined me in the library,  half an hour later, it was with the  glad news that she had responded  gratifylngly to treatment, and was  sleeping calmly. After thanking him  for his promptness and efficiency, I  said:;; - ; V:-  "You do not remember me?"  "Oh, yes, I do," he returned, almost  "brusquely, fixing me with his   gaze.  "You are Mr. Clyde.   Did yon get any  relief from the prescription I gave  your*  I had not expected the question and  was unprepared for it. Ia venturing  an evasive reply I stammered.

"It Is unnecessary, Mr. Clyde," was  his half-polijte rejoinder, as he sank into a chair before the fireplace: ������������������ 1  read tbe newspapers, and I have come  to understand, many things ln the  past few days."     '  As I took tt seat opposite tor him. 1  said:  "The newspapers have, been misleading. I fear, Dr. Addison.",  "No," he. contradicted, his tone  softened.

"Our best Information is that be is  on a steamer���������a tramp���������bound for.  China, but we have no particulars, and  worse still, no verification."  It waa neither fair nor consistent to  conceal longer from one so justly Interested the whole truth, and so, without reservation* I told Dr. Addison the  story.  Before I had quite concluded, Miss  Clement wss announced, and when  she was shown Into the library. Instead of permitting tha physician to  leave, as he made offer of doing, I  presented him and insisted upon his  remaining.  - % want yo_Ufe.������H Mtei~o������mej_t  Ton.  see this poor fellow suffered horribly  at times srid when be was not suffer.

It  appears to me., however, that In his  ease, these very conditions only  strengthen the probabilities; for bis  mind seemed to hold only the one  theme, end his statements could hardly have been either spontaneous <or  studied inventions. On the other  hand, they were rather a sort of invol-  notary recital of the particulars of a,  subject which hatf engrossed him for  years to the exclusion of almost every.  thing alse."  Dr. Addison nodded his head, an*  couraglngly. "I quite.' understand.  Miss Clement" he said. And I, too,  assured her that her reasoning appeared to me logical.  / 'It was significant," she continued,  "that so far as I could fix dates, he  made no references at all to any happening prior to sixteen years ago. The  tragedy of that time was the begin-'  ntng of what I think I may call bis  mania. Everything he told me had to  do with It It came at the beginning.  at the apex, and at the end ef every  revelation."  . - "The tragedy of sixteen years ago?"  Inquired the physician.

Starting  as errand boy in his father's grocery shop in one  .of the country towns in Lancashire/ Sir William  has built up an enormous business.  ','; The works at: Warrington were established in  1886,~ and two years later at Port Sunlight, both  near' Liverpool/ England. - Now he has added  works; at Mannheim,, Germany, Brussels, Belgium, Olten, .Switzerland, Sydney, New South  Wales, "near Boston, TJ. S. A., Toronto, Canada,  and on the Congo, Africa, where he has a,contract of territory,, and where a number of towns  have been created by him; chief among which is  Leverville.  , Sir William also has a twenty-one year monopoly, from the British Government for setting  up palm oil factories' over an area of 31} square  miles'in Sierra Leone, West Africa, and owns two  islands inthe middle of the Pacific, known respectively, as Hull island and Fl[int island-  Port Sunlight, the headquarters of the concern, is now a large and thriving town,, occupied  exclusively by Sir William's employees, many  thousands in number, with churches, public libraries, gymnasia, and theatres ,of its own, all  provided by him. ���������  The place wa evisited hy b$th the king and  tbe queen on tbe occasion of their stay with Lord  Vand Lady Perby at Knowsley park at the beginning of last month.  And now Burrard Inlet is to be the scene of a  new Lever town- It means an industry employing hundreds and ultimately many thousand  employees.  It puts Vancouver distinctly on the man as a  :_ place marked out by__nature .forjthe _locat_ion_of  the huge industrial undertakings of the world.  In this connection it is opportune to call attention once more to the necessity of cultivating  the ' patronize-your-home-industry. habit. The  case in point is the second-narrows,bridge���������contract for which is shortly Jo be let. It will be a  civic crime if that contract goes outside. Under  the circumstances the lack of local employment���������  the falling off in the biffh building trade���������the  placing of that contract with the local houses capable of tackling it might mean the turning of the  tide.  BUILDING SBASON OFJSN8 AT WINNIPEG  Winnipeg, Man.���������Managers of leading Winnipeg real estate concerns interviewed today state  that prospects for a big year in real estate are  exceedingly bright, the activity now noted being  most marked in residential properties of the better class. Although the building season is but  just fairly opened, permits issued to date stand  well above the $5,000,000 mark, and work on  hundreds of dwelling houses, besides many apartment blocks, will soon be under full headway.  From present indications it is calculated that 1914  totals should run far ahead of the record-breaking figures of 1912. For residential and building  purposes well located river- fornt sub-divisions  such as Tuxedo Park, Pomona, Bydal and King  George Park are gaining rapidly in favor with  home builders just at the present tfane.  BRITAIN AT PANAMA EXPOSITION.  London���������A very strong and influential deputation, representing more than half the membership of British House of Commons has been  received by Premier Asquith, and the promise  given that their views would be sumbited to the  Cabinet. It is now extremely probable that  Great Britain will be officially represented at  the Panama Pacific Exposition at San Francisco.  Following the "Call's" Lead  The Chicago Record-Herald, a fine, up-to-date  daily paper, announces that it will hereafter accept no contracts for liquor advertisements. Existing contracts will be filled, but in future the  pages will be kept free from such matter.  S. Vancouver  May 13  FOR REEVE   .  J. A. Kerr  Edward Gold  FOR COUNCILLOR  Ward 5  i <  H. A.

POTATO DISEASES  ELECTION PAY:  There has been issued by the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa a  remarkably well executed folder,  Farmers Circular No. 4, 'entitled  "Potatoe diseases transmitted by the  use of unsound tubers," showing in  natural colors, representations*" of  specimens of diseased potatoes. Diseases and other blemishes represented  are potato canker, powdery scab.j  hollow potato,'internal brown streak,  little potato disease, dry rot,, wet rot,  common potato scab, a'nd stem end  rot. Special reference is made to potato canker, and pow4ery scab, the  latter of which occurs already in Canada and should be carefully avoided.  The folder points out that, under the  destructive Insect and Pest Act of  Canada any person using for seed  potatoes, infected by potato canker  or powdery scab is liable to prosecution. Potato growys who suspect  the presence of either of the 'latter  diseases are requested to send to the  Dominion Botanist, Centraf Experimental Farm, OttawaV This folder,'  prepared by Mr. H. T. Gussow, Dominion Botanist, will be sent free to  those who apply for it to the Publications Branch of the Department of  Agriculture at Otawa.

Leonard Janes was South Vancouver's tax collector, and during his years of service he  made many friends. His death came as a blow to the whole municipality. He was 25 years of age,  and was thought to have been in the pink of health up to a few days before his death- [  It might be said tbat Leonard Janes gave his life for the, welfare of the community. Jft  was against the advice of his physician tbat he persisted in attending to his duties at the Municipal Hall right up almost to the day before his passing. - ���������  , , Few.men were more familiar with the science of municipal government-than the lafce^  Mr. Janes. As a boy he was articlecl for three years to the municipal engineer to the Herne  J3ay Urban JPistrict Council} Brent,'England. Later he served as surveyor to that municipality.  He was^appointed assistant C. M. C. in South Vancouver in/1908, and the following year was promoted to the post of assessor and collector of taxes. In all his duties the late Mr. Janes showed  an exactness and general efficiency which made him stand out amongst bis'fellows. His department was at all times thoroughly'systematize^ and running without the usual hitches and difficulties.,                 -   ;                               '  There is very little doubt that the drastic overthrow of the entire municipal staff of South  Vancouver contributed to, if it did not actually- cause, the sudden breakdown of Mr- Janes'  health. ��������� A man of peculiar sentiyeness, he undoubtedly wilted under the ruthless methods of the  man responsible for these upheavals.  /fucfam.  South Vancouver  > j ' r  Conscienceless Municipal Body j  That the South Vancouver municipality was devoid of conscience, and .that its defense t������  ihe action/ brought against it by the Dominion Greosoting Company, was without merit, was the  declaration of Mr. Justice Gregory yesterday. -  Claim was entered by the company for .$7,500, payment for work on the paving of Mail  and Fraser streets, the defense being that no authority had been given for tbe work, the contract  tor not having waited for written orders, the contract stating that the work was to be delayed un.-|  til tbe engineer gave instructions. .   ���������       '  The evidence showed the engineer of the municipality,-knowing that the old council hac  passed the resolution awarding the contract, stood by tbe contractors, which elicited the remark  from his lordship that said engineer had some backbone.  Mr. Craig continued that it was part of the agreement not to start work until the councijf  had made arrangements to borrow the money at 6 per cent. '  "You mean you would let tbe company go on and do the work and at the end say that  you bad been unable to borrow the money at 6 per cent., and so would be unable to'pay the com-]  pany. Nice hcrnest kind of a corporation, that is. I will order merits for the plaintiff," stated tbe  judge.  OF  (Continued!

THE EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD  London.���������Willie Ferrero, the   seven-year-old  symphony conductor, is now the talk of London.  J    Experts like Dr. Nikisch and Bandon Ronald,  ���������who have closely observed him, declare' that his  [performance is the eighth wonder of the world.  "1 am unable' to account for it," said'Mr.  lonald.   "It is an amazing, mysterious gift he  |possesses."  Young Ferrero was taken to-Marlborough  Ihduse to* see Queen Alexandra. When her ma-  I jesty entered the room where the boy was waiting  Iwith his father and mother, Willy gallantly  [kissed the Queen's hand. She, responded with a-  lsalute on his forehead.  Queen Alexandra asked how he liked conducting, and Willy replied that he liked playing with-  foys just as well. J  Her majesty inquired as to his experience in  it. Petersburg, where he was made much of by  the Imperial family, and asked if she resembled  ler sister, the Empress Marie-  "Not a bit," answered Willy promptly.  JOSEPH' BOWMAN���������ARCHITECT  South Vancouver, much maligned, is not without some talent." Amongst those whose reputation was shaken by .the Gold upheaval was our  friend Joseph Bowman, architect, whose skill has  given us as fine a' class of school buildings' in  South Vancouver as can be found anywhere.  ' Well���������Burnaby trustees had a school to build,  and the-influence of the Gold campaign led them  to pass up poor old Joe, as a non-competent. And  ������ so to get rid of him they called for sealed 'tenders. The plans were to be in separate covers/  numbered, but not signed, and the tenders were  to be sealed with corresponding number and  signed. Plans were to be opened first, and selection made so as to ensure an unbiased judgment.  This was done, and after much deliberation a  certain set of plans by unknown architect voted  as the most acceptable.   Then were likewise the-  tenders opened, and Joseph came into his own..  The plans accepted were those furnished by our  own Joseph Bowman.   A man, by the way, whose  reputation in a long business career in our midst,  is untarnished, and whose family life is an object  lesson to us all.  And, mind you, as Harry Lauder,  would say, these things are not to be despised.   -  HUNT CLUB MEET  ' Officials of the Vancouver Hunt Club have  announced the following programme for the fifth  annual meeting which will be held at H.
