SOUTH VANCOUVER
Reeye Kerr is hopeful t^tat over 500 men will
soon be employed on Municipal work. The Ward
gangs will be raised to a total strength of 175
men. Main Street and. Bodwell Boad will give
work to 250 men, and Victoria Boad will take 100^
P. more, if plans do not miscarry. <,
In addition to this the waterworks will employ
about 100 men.        - "' ";- ' a''
The Reeve favors,expending money, this year,
on necessary work as fast as it is available, contending/ wisely wc think; that money spent this
year will be helpful more than perhaps in any
other year of South Vancouver's history.
A petition with over 800 names was-presented
to the B. C. E. <R. B�� by a strong delegation from
district tributary to-Kerr and 56th Streets       . )
The delegation was .reinforced by Reeve Kerr
and Councillors and laid before General Manager
Kidd the lack of street car accommodation to one
of the first seftled neighborhoods of the Munici-'
pality, and <>ne of^he very sanest building territories on the whole uplift.
The General Manager replied that the company
would carefully look into the matter.
j
'_ The sale of the South Vancouver bonds last
week relieves the Council from a good deal of
monetary troubles. Unquestionably there is a
confidence being felt in the stability of the municipal finance" by the investing public that was
lacking during the late turmoil.
The Council will now be in a position to go on
with much needed improvements. The paving
of Victoria road is .amongst one of the first problems to be attacked. , Tbe necessary funds will
easily be procurable from the banks. With this
work under way the outlook for tfte-workwten of
South Vancouver .4a much brighter than ia was
last winter. The understanding arrived, at py ���
the Bithulithic Company, the contractors on Bodwell road, and the Council, show bow easily a
problem can be overcome when both parties are in
a conciliatory mood. All along the Bithulithic
people have shown that they desire to live up to
the contracts they bave entered into, and the
Council have shewn sound judgment in not placing
impossible obstructions in the way of carrying out
this contract. .
The elate for receiving tenders for Victoria
road has been extended as the Engineer is not
ready with the grades. The total cost of the
scheme will in all probability run into the neighborhood of $100,000, but the major portion of
this sum will be spent in wages, so that the municipality will reap, the greatest benefit from the
_work.     -   ���     r~
The meeting of the so-called ratepayers of
Ward 5, held in.the Municipal hall last,week,
found its aftermath in the Police Court on Tuesday. On looking over the list of names appearing before Magistrate Johnson, one fails to understand how some'of the parties charged can
claim to be ratepayers of the Ward. It is time
something drastic was done to those who are
creating the turmoil, and we are pleased to see
Councillor Miller take tbe action he has. The
Councillor has shewn that he will not be dictated
to by a number of people who seem to imagine
that the municipality ought only to engage those
workmen who are favorable to the self-elected
bosses of the Ratepayers' Association.
. A dozen South Vancouver residents were
brought before Magistrate Johnson on Tuesday'
charged with rioting and ��� vagrancy. The accused are;: A. Messenger, W. Nelson, C. McNeil,
Gordon W. Thomas, Jr., W. Barraclough, Thomas
and Park Houston, G. Batchelor, Jack Elliott.
[Lally McKenzie and Mrs. A. Messenger.
This incident, is > aid to have arisen as an
aftermath of the Gold regime. When Councillor
(Millar was elected for Ward IV he discharged the
���Ward Poretnan, J. W; Barraclough, and replaced
,,bim by" re-appointing Prank Haggenaar, who had
lost his head under the Gold councillorship. Mr.
[ Barraclough and his friends objected to this and
took a rather drastic way of emphasizing their ob-
; jections. Hence this case in court. There were
three charges. AIL charged with rioting. All
charged with being vagrants, causing a disturb-
1 ance by'screaming.- Thomas Houston and W. B.
Barraclough charged with wilfully damaging
���property. %/-;L ---v; :'���;,, _-. .V.'v . '"V-:V:
After several lively passages between Magistrate and Mr. Elmer Jones, who appeared for the
defense, the cases were all adjourned to July 15.
The council chamber was packed and a tremendous interest in causes apparent. Councillor
Thomas was present and took his seat on the
jilatform next to counsel for Crown. This seemed
to rouse Magistrate Johnson, who asked: "Mr.
Thomas, in'W^t;;��^pi^^|a%^you' appear here?

Pevelopments on Albertan Oil Fields
The Alberta oil fields are to be connected up by
wireless. It is expected that within a week wireless messages will be passing between Fort McKay, where are jituated the four_ Athabasca Oils
JJtd.,' wells, and Edmonton and Calgary, between
which points are situated the Cunningham Craig-
Mowbray Berkeley interests.     ���^
The aggregate capital of the companies now organized to develop the oil fields in Alberta is
something more than '$400,000,000.
Since the first "strike" in Southern Alberta
370 companies bave~ftow been incorporated, and
the fees collected by the   Provincial   Register
amount'to $92,500.
Oil leases taken out in Alberta now cover 3,150
square miles. _ During June 1,500 filings_were mtfde.
and the receipts of the office from this source approximated $120,000. These filings do not include
those -made on several thousand acres in the
Drumheller and Steveville districts.
The business of the Dominion land office is nearly as heavy today as it was a month ago, and
there is not an hour in the day tbat the office is not
taxed to its capacity in recording gas and petroleum filings.       <-'

'     BUSINESS REVIVAL AT THE COAST
Grand Porks, B. C.���With the promise of
bumper friiit crops this year, together with the
pronounced revival of the mining, industry
throughout the southern interior of British Columbia, a development movement is now under
way in this part of the Province exceeding in
scope anything known here for many months
past. "You cannot put it too strongly," says
one investigator, a well known public official,
"that British Columbia is at present witnessing a
really remarkable revival in the mining industry.
In all of the districts of the interior which I have
recently visited, the moat aggressive activity is
noticeable on all ��des and on the most legitimate
and businesslike lines."
The present outlook for this searon's apple
production in the Kootenay and Boundary districts is 100 carloads, according to experts, of
which the Boundary is expected to contribute at
least 45 carloads.
RATEPAYERS'MEETING        v
on bridge mm
'*<K~
'" "> K
Members of the Manufacturers' Association.of'p'V'
B. C, by invitation, attended, on Wednesday even-  -
ing, a meeting of the Ratepayers' Association ot^^'i
North Vancouver,.beld to discuss the awarding of <    t(
the contract for the Second Narrows Bridge.,  u    *f '
The enthusiastic reception given Reeve May,  ' "
when he rose to speak, the frequent cheers that ^
greeted his honest, straight-forward explanation^
of his attitude on the bridge matter, and the |i*o-; >'
longed applause When he concluded, proved con-/
clusively that the ratepayers were in hearty-le.*'
cord with the Reeve's actions in regard to the '"
award of the bridge contract.   In sharp contrast
"were the receptions of Mayor Irwin, Alderman
Vance, Councillors Bridgman and Loutet, the four'
admitted opponents of the local tenders.   "   -
Neither the President, nor Vice-President of the
Ratepayers were present, and on motion of Biidg-
man it was resolved that Alderman Fowler take
the chair.  The fact that Mr. Fowler recently supported and seconded a motion in the Council of"
North Vancouber, obviously aimed at those sup-,
porting local industries may have influenced Mr."
Bridgman in hisrehoice of a chairman. ,
Tjhe Chairman opened the meeting with, a few/
remarks, as to the desire of those present for i_W'
v formation, on matter of the1 bridge, and the inebr-'
rect statement (immediately objected.to by M>>
Cope) that the meeting had been called at the behest of the Manufacturers' Association."~
Mr. Cope outlined briefly the aims of 'the Association; referred to the  standing bf ita member*
, and the bast capital they represented, and e*-
in this matter. H�� proceeded to review the actions of Messrs. Irwin, Vance, Bridgman and
Loutet, showing the unfairness of these four men
. toward the Turner, design and the local manufacturers. Mr. Cope very severely criticised tne attitude of these representatives of the people and
also that of the engineers of the company, and
showed conclusively that the Association had good
grounds for complaint. Uvery ' conceivable obstacle bad been raised against the local interests.
Tbis severe grilling evidently cut the four men
concerned, wbo continually endeavored to interrupt the criticisims beings made by Mr. Cope.
Their strenuous efforts to restrain Mr. Cope
from further comment failed, in spite of Chairman
Fowler's effort to restrict the scope of Mr. Cope's
remarks to bridge matters, rather than the conduct of these representatives. Mr. Cope indignantly resented the interference N of the Chair, and
claimed the right^to criticise the action "of theseT"
men in public office, and to inform the people of
their actions. The audience emphatically indicated their sympathy with Mr. Cope, and the
Chairman subsided while the speaker proceeded
with his remarks.
Mr. Cope outlined bow these four Directors had
. raised various trivial objections to the local shops
from time to time; which objections had been
shown unfounded; how they had resented the
stand the Manufacturers' Association had .taken,
and with the assistance of the engineers, had
treated Mr. Turner and the local bidders with
scant courtesy and great unfairness, doing all that
in their power lay, to send this job to an Eastern
firm; how the Manufacturers' Association had, at
their own expense, hired a competent bridge engineer to pass upon the Turner plans, and had
presented this report to the Bridge Directors, to
assist them in making a decision, and how these
same four had strenuously objected to even hearing this report, for fear there might be something
in it that might tend to change their minds, whicji
seemed so set for the East, and might show Turner's plan to be a good one. Mr. Cope finished with.
a strong appeal to keep all the work possible in
our own Province, not to send pur money East to
keep the factories there busy while our own plants
were idle and our workingmen V dinner pails
empty. The audience showed their keen apprcia-
tion of the logic of Mr. Cope's arguments by
heartly and prolonged applause,
Mr. Cunningham, of the B. C. Refinery, followed,
and presented a powerful argument in favor of
supporting home industry, pointed out the dire
need of our workmen for every dollar that could
be kept here, and greatly deprecated the evident
determination of Mayor Irwin, Aid. Vance, and
Councillors Bridgman and Loutet, to deprive our
local factories and workingmen of this much
needed work. \ He then proceeded with a caustic
review of certain actions of these four men, and
his very pointed remarks were again the cause of"
frenzied objections, particularly from Mayor
Irwin, and once more Chairman Fowler, came to
the support of his friends. Mr. Cunningham, however, drove his point home, and those present
showed, by their applause, that they understood
the situation, and desired to know all the facts

When first Lord- Roberts  spoke in these strains it fell on deaf because unwilling ears. But events that have since transpired have lent a new force to Lord Roberts'  protests. '"  Since   the    beloved leader of the Empire's  . army first warned the.- parliamentarians much  water has run under the bridge. The politicians  were inclined to laugh in their sleeves at the  strong words'of warning, but there has now been  organized in Ulster an army larger than the Duke  of Wellington commanded at Waterloo. More  than this���������it has beeii demonstrated by actual  -test that.probably 90 per cent, of the officers of  the British army will resign if ordered to march  against the Covenanters of Ulster.  It has also been made quite apparent that the  navy is as useless as an instrument of coercion  where Ulster is concerned, so that whilst the  earlier warning of Lord Roberts fellVupon deaf  : ears���������today men of, all parties are more, inclined  to listen to the man who has given ..himself and  his loved ones, without reserve, to defend and  upbuild the Empire. ".  . .'-'Bow was it," asked Lord Roberts, in the  Bouse of Lords during the recent debate on the  Borne Rule Bill, -"that they were faced witjra-  situation in which, tbe army had indicated * the  possibility_of disobedience. The answer was that  there was more than a political crisis.   They  ' were face to face with a clash of principles, which  raised the question far beypnd the realm of ordinary politics. * - ������  At a comparatively early stage in the struggle  he warned the government that any attempt., to  use the military force for the coercion of Ulster  would break and ruin the army. (Opposition  cheers.)                                                * -  Bis words fell on deaf, ears. The country  might plunge into civil war or might walk slowly  into it������ but whichever course they took it remained civil war. They might make, the j>osition  of the array yet more difficultly graduating the  steps so as to give each step the appearance of  legality and.reason, but those}steps would none /  the less lead them into the same abyss later.  It would Jbecome manifest tbat force was to  -be-used for the-sole purpose of ^coercing Ulster.-  When that moment was reached the disaster to  the army which he foresaw would come about."  " " I tell your lordships again now, as I told you  in February,",declared Lord Roberts, "if this-  demand is renewed the army will be brought to  destruction." (Opposition cheers.)  "What is it, then, the army has indicated its  unwillingness to do? The array refused to shoot'  down men whose only crime consisted of an  unconquerable determinationx to resist forcible exclusion from a country they respect and  trust."  Intense Loyalty  "This determination, mark you, is born of  intense loyalty and a passionate love of country.  Is it to be wondered at if discipline is powerless to  make men take the lives of fellowmen, fellow-  citizens, fellow-subjects under suck circumstances as these f Surely no other result could be expected in the face of so appalling, so monstrous  a demand.  "I have attempted to put the facts of the situation before you in the plain, simple language  of a soldier, and to show you why it is morally  unjustifiable and practically unfeasible to apply  direct coercion to Ulster.   (Opposition cheers.)  "Surely, even now, we can take steps to avert  such an inexpressible disaster to the army and to  the nation. Is it too much to ask of patriotism  that men should drop all their party differences  and seek a national solution of this otherwise impossible situation?"  TRADE WITH ORIENT  Commissioner J. K. Ross of Yokohama reports to the Trade and Commerce Department at  Ottawa that there are unexampled opportunities  for the development of Canadian trade in the far  East.  Lumber, flour, salted fish, condensed milk,  biscuits, boots and shoes, stoves, sewing machines,  beer, 'and ales, cheese, railway materials, picks,  shovels, etc., are all in great and growing demand  ���������also a taste for luxuries is growing rapidly in  China, and what one has another wants.  Mr. Ross finds that-no serious struggle is being made by our merchants on the Pacific coast  to secure this trade. He recommends that Canadian goods be labelled in such a manner as to  appeal to Chinese intelligence, and that a trade  mark onee established should never be changed.  Ratepayer's Meeting on Bridge  Question  (Continued from page 1)  of the case. J Several questions were asked by Mr.  Cunningham and satisfactorily disposed of, and  some slight attempt at heckling fell flat.  Reeve May followed with a clean cut statement  of his position. He did not need to bolster up his  case with any carefully selected extracts from  minutes of meetings or reports, but confined himself to a true statement of the facts and of his own  actions. He referred to his long public service  and stated that in, supporting home industry, he  was acting according to ithe dictates .of his conscience, and that if he were wrong he was willing  to abide by the consequences. The loud applause  that greeted the conclusion of his remarks was a  splendid endorsement of his position, and that  Reeve May is carrying out the wishes of his constituents was demonstrated beyond all question, at  this- meeting.  Mayor Irwin followed by reading copious extracts from minutes of Directors' meetings; reports fend letters'designed to justify the actions  of the Bridge Directorate. It was pointed out by  some in the audience that they wanted an explanation of his personal actions and sentiments  and not those of the Board, but his worship ap-  parantly wished-to talk of the Board's actions  rather than his own, and in spite of the obvious  disapproval of the crowd, continued with his  /reading. He wound up with a series of platitudes  in a futile effort to justify the action of himself  and his three associates, but those present were  not greatly impressed and seemed rather relieved  when he made way for Councillor Bridgman. This  latter gentleman, who is apparantly the le&detvof  the aggregation opposing the support of home industries, put forward an ingenious defence of the  position of himself and his cohorts, dwelling on  his devotion to the cause of home industries and  his sorrow that he could not see his way clear to  support the local tenderers on the bridge, but the  ridicule of the audience that greeted his remarks  showed great lack of faith in his utterances. ~  Alderman Vance followed in sterotyped manner,  echoing the preyious speakers, but met with a very  chilly reception.  Councillor-Loutet next spoke, but owing to his  unfairness in reading only certain portions of the  Manufacturers' Association engineer's report, in  addition to making a number of mis-statements,'  the audience vWaslrelieved when he ceased speaking.   Reeve May, while Councillor Loutet was on  the floor,, compelled him to withdraw the untrue  statement previously made against Mayor Baxter,  Aid. Woodside, Reeve May and Reeve Lawson.  This speaker also ifiade certain aspersions against  Mayor Baxter and Aid. Woodside, as members of  the Railway and Bridges Committee of the Vancouver City Council, in connection with the letting  of tbe Georgia-Harris viaduct to C. A. P. Turner.  .  Mr. John Coughlan, who has been actively engaged in business in the Province for some thirty-  six years, was next to address the ratepayers, and  received a hearty reception.   Be', reviewed   the'  bridge, situation very carefully and disposed of  many specious objections to the Turner design  that had been raised.   Mr. Coughlan stated that  Messrs. Cleveland & Cameron were not experienced bridge engineers, which both Sir. Turner  and Mr. Munstejr were, and pointed out tbat ifcthe  ��������� Turner plan was so full of defects as the engineers  would have the Board believe, it would not have  been necessary for,the Eastern concerns to have  made the series of large reductions in their bids  that   had   been made.. These reductions Varied1  from   three   to  five   hundred thousand dollars,  which sura of money the local firms had already  saved the Bridge Company by having caused the  Eastern concerns to so reduce their bids.   It was  unfair that reductions of figures should be1 permitted and contrary to, .custom.   These four Directors were shielding themselves behind the engineers' report, although they must-know that report- coul4 notbe reliedon as showing a- truthful-  state of affairs.  At the' close of the meeting Chairman Fowler  suggested a motion commending the Directors,  but this did not find favor with the audience, and  a simple motion of thanks to the Manufacturers'  Association and the Directors* for their, attendance*  at^the meeting was made and carried. The failure .  of'the Chairman to find a mover for a resolution  commending the action, of the Directors is a clear  indication that the ratepayers condemned the actions of the four Directors, and unequivocally endorsed Reeve May in his honest stand for the support of local industry, and it is certain that the  North Vancouver Ratepavers' Association are not  in accord with Messrs. Irwin, Vance, Bridcrman  and Loutet in their efforts to build up the Eastern manufacturers at the expense of those of tbe  West. These men have been weighed in the balance and found wanting, and now that their constituents have shown their strong sentiment in  favor of home industry they should reconsider  their position and endeavor, in future, to be as  active'for the local industries as they now seem to  be for the Eastern factories.  GREAT 0HI0AOO MERCHANT  PREDICTS WAVE OF PROSPERITY  A new wave of prosperity based on record  crops was forecast yesterday by John V. Parwell,  head of the John V. Parwell company, a wholesale dry goods house, who is in touch with conditions throughout the country.  "Our traveling men report the biggest crops  of all kinds for years past," he said. "The railroads have arranged to handle the produce as fast  as it is delivered. The markets are waiting to  receive the shipments and the bankers are anxious  to get their reserve cash into circulation.  "With these potential factors at work, the  country cannot dodge prosperity if it tries. The  depression of the summer has been due to lack of  confidence on the part of capital. Much money  went into hiding to await developments. However, whatever apprehension was felt has been set  at rest by the bumper crops.  "The next move is distribution of products  and money so that prosperity will be brought to  every individual. That such prosperity will come  within a short while is reasonably certain."  IRON AND STEEL INDUSTRY  According to the definite reports of such em-"  inent authorities as Prof.- Lindeman, Horace V.  Winchell and others, TexadaJteland shows up a  proven ore body of a possible minimum of 10,-  000,000 tons Jo a possible maximum of 60,000,000  tons;,that this ore"is higher in metallic iron and  lower in phosphorus and sulphur than the average ores used by the U..S. Steel Corporation; that  pig iron from this ore has been produced in quantities at the Irondale furnaces, paying the Western standard ratetof wages, at $15.00 a ton; that  this pig iron has been rolled down into steel and  used for a variety of purposes throughout the  States and has elicited the highest^praise, obtaining a certificate of merit from the U. S. naval  authorities, stating that the steel plates used in  the construction of the U. S.J3.S. Nebraska, made  from Texada ore was the best that had been used  in the navy. Add to this the fact that the actual  trade returns show a consumption of 80,000 tons  of pig iron per annum within a radius which  would be controlled by a local smelter, and that  coal and limestone abound in close proximity and  on tide water, then the question arises, why are  the Texada iron mines shut down and why has  B. C. no blast furnaces and why does she still continue to import all her iron and steel when it is  amply demonstrated that blast furnaces producing 300 to 400 tons per 24 hours would be a paying investment?.  The maximum cost of production is estimated  at from $14 to $16 per ton. The cheapest coke  pig iron f.o.b. the coast comes from Ashland,  Wis., an'd costs today $25.40 per ton.  There are, therefore, an ample margin for  ultimate profit on investment, and room for a  two or even four unit installation at once. Why  not now? x  CHICAGO  - From 1st June, 1913, to 31st May, 1914, Chicago erected buildings totalling $100,000,000.  This year, 1914-15, will see^ some of the greatest  developments in railway terminals in the history  of Chicago.  Moire than" $80,000,000 will be expended in  this class of work'alone.   The items are:  New West Side terminal    $65,000,000  Belt Railway terminal ���������.'....*....:. 10,000,000"  Sod Line Freight terminal     8,000,000  It is estimated that the work will employ 10,-  .000 men for more than three^years.   ,  Next in importance is the work, started this  spring on the outer harbor.  The contract for the work vnow in progress  calls for $1,000,000, but the entire project will require an expenditure of $6,200,000.    ,  Of this amount the city will furnish $5,000,000,  a bond issue having been authorized by the  voters.- The Federal Government .has appropriated the balance, $1,211,195.  Work, is to be begun this fall on the $5,-  000,000 ��������� MarshalLField Memorial Museum of  Natural History. This stupendous building is to  be entirely of white Georgia marble, and will be  700 feet frontage and 350 feet deep. It will take  over three years to build and give employment to  an army of building laborers of all trades and  crafts.   ���������  AS BIG AS TEXAS, AND BIGGER  The Chronicle of Houston, Texas, the City  where Rotary Clubs of the World held their 1914  Convention, June 21-25, had the following 200  words of facts on VANCOUVER, contributed by  J. Reginald Davidson, Industrial Commissioner.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia,-Canada; now  a city of 207,000 people,as one of the illustrations  of the saying that "the twentieth century is Canada's." -     /',  "4 "      V ,  The, last ten years have seen its development  from a little outpost of 25,000 people to a thriving  city, have seen $115,000,000, spent - in buildings  . and the assessed value of city property jump from  twenty-eight to over two hundred and twenty-  six millions. .  And now the reasons in brief. Vancouver's  harbor is one of the three or four best harbors in  the whole world, and to the harbor come six railways, five of them transcontinentals.  Back of the city is a province whose resources  stagger the imagination. Big as is Texas���������and - "  "Texas is the biggest thing in the United States"  ���������British Columbia is bigger by 50 per cent.  Moreover, Vancouver is. the tide water port for  another province, Alberta, as big as Texas, of enormous value and Varied natural wealth, and yet  another province, Saskatchewan, also 10 per cent,  larger than Texas f and with wonderful productive powers.'  British Columbia has a coast-line of seven  thousand miles; fifteen million acres of standing  "timber; twenty million acres of wheat land: five  million acres of fruit land; the largest coal areas  in North America; its mines have produced f��������� ur  hundred and ninety-two million dollars; its fisheries, one hundred and forty-three million dollars;  and it has 2250 miles of railway in operation and  is constructing 2304 miles more railway at a cost  of $200,000,000. For this province Vancouver is  the port, the money centre, the clearing house and  commercial metropolis.  Add to the figures of wealth the fact that Vancouver has pure and unlimited water, water  powers at hand, a beautiful situation and has one  of the best all-the-year-round climat.cn in America  and you will see why it is a good place to dwell in  and do well in and must be one of the largest  cities on the Pacific Ocean.  "Come and see!"    '  NEW $10,000,000 HARBOR SCHEME  Statement by H. H. Stevens, M. P., at Board of  Trade Rooms  "I have at the present time before the Dominion Government and the Harbor Commissioners  of Vancouver a .Scheme that will cost $10,000,000  to Complete,, and which will be of inestimable  value to Vancouver in the development, of it's  transportation, a scheme the details of wbich I  should like to tell you about now were At not  that certain negotiations which are under way  render it impossible.'' ������-  Mr. Stevens also outlined the several important  works that the,-Dominion Government was now  engaged upon in Vancouver harbor, aggregating  in cost upwards of $6,000,000, one half of which  has already been compassed within the space of  two years, Nl/.���������.  -Z.  INWA'S POPULATION  TODAY 315,000,000  Census Taken in One Night���������What  Government Returns Shows'  London.���������At a cost of only ������135,-  000, and by means of a staff number-  ing about two million .persons, ajjen  eral census of India was taken on the  night of March 10, 19H, the results  of which are" embodied in a larg������\vo������S  ume issued by the India Office as a  blue book. j  The difficulties of taking a census  of a population numbering more than  300,000,000, over an area of 1,803,657  square miles, were enormous. They  were especially great owing, as the  report puts it, "to the long lines of  railway, the big rivers on which  boats travel some times for days  without coming to the bank, the forests to which -wood cutters resort  often for weeks at a time, and Ihe  numerous sacred thousands of pilgrims."  People had to be enumerated  wherever they were caught. In the  case of railways, for instance, all persons travelling by rail who took tickets after 7 p. m. on the night of the  census were enumerated either on the  platforms or in~4he trains. The latter were all stopped at 6 a. m. on the  following morning in order to include  any travellers who up till then had  escaped notice.  The summary tables show that the  total population of India (including  the native states) on the night mentioned was 315,156,396 (as against  294,361,056 ten years previously), of  whom 217,586.892 were Hindus, 66,-  647,299 were Moslems, 10,721,453 were  Buddhists, and 3,876.203 were Christians. The literate numbered only 18,-  539,578 persons, and agriculture  claimed tbe labor of 224,695,909.

Interesting Facts. About India.���������By H. H. Stevens, M. P.  The  complex character  of  Indian  conditions, is  most  clearly exemplified in the,physical type of its in-  [> habitants.  The most inexperienced eye cannot  fail to note the remarkable contrasts  : presented  by  the  natives  of  India,  j such as Gurkas, Pathans, Sikhs, Raj-  f puts, Burnians, Nagas, Tamils, Etc.  The typical inhabitants of India���������  [the Dravidians ��������� differ altogether  from those of Northen Asia, and more  j nearly resemble the tribes of Malaya,  wSumatra and Madagascar. Whatever  may be their origin, it is certain that  [.they have been settled in India for  countless ages, and that their physi-  Ical characteristice have been evolved  Elocally. They have been displaced in  [the Northwest by successive hordes.  |bf invaders, including Aryans, Scythians, Pathans and Moghals, and in  (the Northeast by Mongoloids. It is  jpon the comparatively small number of Aryans, who came to India,  that many Hindus now proudly base  their claim |o being of the Aryan  face, ignoring their Dravidian origin  the main.  There are in India about one hundred and thirty indigenous dialects,  Jelonging to six distinct families of  >eech, thus greatly intensifying the  larked racial differences.  In the domain of religion the bulk  if the people caU themselves Hindus.  I'here are, however, millions of Mu-  kammadans,    Animists,      Buddhists,  lains,   Sikhs  and   Christians.     Hin-  luism has many creeds and doctrines,  Ind  includes   Monotheists,   Polythe-  fsts and Pantheists; also worshippers  f>f  the  gode  Sira and  Vishnu,  and  leir female counterparts, and worshippers of divine mothers, spirits of  trees, rocks and streams.   There are  ilso included under it persons who  >ropitiate, their deity by all manner  if bloody sacrifices, and then there  lire those who will kill no living crea-  jre and who must pot even use the  lyord-l'cut."   There are those whose  ritual consists mainly of-prayers, and  |ymns, while others indulge in unsaleable orgies in the name of religion.    This wide difference in ' religion finds a counterpart in social  istoms���������in the North near relatives  tay not marry, while in the South  fery close relatives frequently'marry.  \n  some parts female    chastity    is  le simplest form.   There is only"one  Compiled from the "Report of the Census of India"  valued,  while  in  many  communities million acres, and while the districts  little store is set by it, and in some Iwere formerly but sparsely populated  parts they make it a rule to dedicate  sne daughter of the family to a life  of religious prostitution.  Area and Population  According to revised statistics of  the 1911 census the Indian Empire  contains 1,802,657 square miles; The  provinces under British administration comprise 1,093,074 square miles,  or about 60 per cent, of the total  area'. vThe remainder is included in  various native states or states having  native rulers under British-advice and  direction. ,  The total population is-315,156,396,  of which British territory contains  244,267,542, or about 77 per cent, of  the whole, and the native states 70,-  888,854, or about 23 per cent.  In order, to more clearly realize  these' stupendous figures a few comparisons will be interesting. India is  equal in area to the whole of Europe  excepting Russia. Burma is equal in  size to Austria-Hungary, .Bombay to  Spain, Punjab greater than the British Isles.  The population of India exceeds  that of Europe except Russia, and is  considerably more than three times  thftt of the United States and Canada  combined.  In India as a whole there~are an  average of 175 persons per-square  mile. In that portion under British  administration it is 223 per square  mile. In West Bengal 607 to the  square mile, Central Bengal 634, East  Bengal 516, North Bengal 522, How-  rah 1,850, th_ Dacca District 1,794, in  Tippera 972, etc.  ��������� *  Irrigation     ,  India owes to British rule and skill  its greatest, benefactor���������irrigation.  There is perhaps no administrative  problem which has received so much  attention from th������\ government as  this, and in 1910-11 a total area of  22 1-2 million acres had been brought  under irrigation. V _.  In Madras on the east coast, with  a rainfall of dnly 32 inches per annum,  by a system of irrigation the country is able to support a population,  equal.to that of the west coast with a  rainfall of 110 inches. In Gaya canal  irrigation has turned a desert into a  region of rich fertility.. The total  area of irrigated land" now exceeds 22  _______________9_____________B__B__________I  now they are rapidly increasing in  numbers and relieving the more  densely populated; areas elsewhere.  To illustrate���������in 1891 the Lyallpur  district in the Punjab was' a barren  desert, with only, a population of  seven per square mile; in 1911 this had  increased to 272 to the square mile,  as a direct result of the introduction)  of irrigation by the British. N  Increase of Population  The population of India has increased 7.1 per cent, since 1901, and  52 per cent, since 1872, or from 206,-  162,360 in 1872 to 315,156,396 in 1911.  In India the birthrate is everywhere  much higher than in Europe, but is  largely discounted by the heavy mortality, especially among infants and  women at child birth, v India is peculiarly liable to fatal epidemics. From  time to time cholera breaks out with  great virulence and smallpox is  common, causing heavy mortality.  The total number of deaths from bubonic plague during the last decade  was 6,500,000.  Industry* and Commerce  During ten year, from 1901 to 1911  imports increased 65 per cent, and  exports over    the same    period increased 95 per cent.  In 1880 there were in the whole of  India only 58 cotton mills employing  48 thousand opertives. By 1911 this  had increased to 250 mills and 231  thousand 'operatives. During the  same period jute mills increased from  21 to 58, and employes from 35 to 216  thousand.  At Sakchi there is a large new industry known as the Tata Iron and'  Steel Works which it is expected,  with other similar works, will make  India self supporting as far as iron  and steel is concerned. The production of coal has increased from less  than one million tons in 1880 to 12  million tons in 1911.  In 1880 there was about 9,000 miles  of railway,' which has increased to  32.000 miles in 1911, carrying 371  million passengers and 66 million  tons,of freight. N  Education  In the whole of India only 59 persons per square- mile are able to read'  and write and most of those only in  literate female to every eleven liter-  twmmAmmwmm.mmmmmmmA^mmmwmm.mm.  ate males, This discrepancy is due  to the practice of keeping down the  female and advancing the male. There  are in India 1.7 million persons who  can read and write in English, or, of  every ten thousand persons of each  sex, 95 males and 10 females possess  this knowledge. This knowledge is  most widespread amongst the Parsis,  who are the greatest traders in India. Of this gifted class, one person  inv. every three can read and write  English, and French is widely known  and frequently spoken fluently among  them. " ���������  The Caste  Perhaps the most rigid and powerful institution in India is the "Caste."  Few, even, of the natives themselves  realize its ramifications and its extent.  ���������������  },  ������4"l~  For we- will replace with a New One  Any piece of Azare (Blue and White  ^^^^^^^^m^^^^m^mmmam^m^a^aaaaawmmaaa^aaaaama^^aa^m.  1 Mottled) Enamelware booffhtT here..  ! \ Did you ever buy Enamel Sauce Pans  Pots, etc., with a Guarantee like this ?  There v are four different kinds of  social distinctions, viz.:  v.  -(1) The four castes (Varna) mentioned in the-Shastras, viz., Brahman,  Kshatriya, Vaisya and Sudra,. with a  fifth division for the large and mis  cellaneous group of untouchables  (asprishya Sudra). ' J  (2) The modern castes (Jati), or  social groups bearing a common  name and having a common traditional occupation.  (3)- The sub-castes, or endogam-  ous groups, into which each main  caste is usually divided, numbering  many hundreds of groups.  (4) The minor sub-divisions, or  exogamous groups, within each sub-  caste, composed of persons reputed  to be .descended from a common ancestor.  The theory of the Hindu law books  is  that all  existing castes  are  descended from 'the original'four great  castes mentioned in the sacred writ-'  ings, or the Shastras.  The social precedence of a castes depends on the  class 'to which it' belongs, and the  spirit  of  exclusiveness  which  holds  the liferent communities aloof from  each other centres in the caste.   The  actual caste to which a Hindu belongs  is a matter of' grave importance to  each  individual.    To  the  Brahman,  for instance, it is immortal whether  a man is a Teli, a JCahar or a Mai.  The important question,for him is  whether water  can  be  taken  from  him or not, whether his touch' does or  does not cause pollution.

Today, sugar is one of the foremost of our food stuffs, high in food values. The sugar made by the British Columbia Sugar Refinery in Vancouver is  the purest in the world. Jt is made by good, honest, hard-working white men, residents of Vancouver. For this reason it should  be bought in preference to the coolie refined sugar of JJongkong. Think of this next time you place the sugar bowl on your table  for use at the family meal, next time you add a cup or two of this necessary food to the ingredients in preparation for some deli- -c  cacy of the larder, ask yourself the question; *fWhere did this sugar come from?"

It is full strength, delicious, white as snow and crystal  clear. It is pure, clean, it is refined by the most sanitary, modern  methods by cleanly white labor, in factories where sunshine and fresh  air predominate. It is packed in neat, clean sacks and cartons, and it  remains clean and free from all contamination. Moreover, British  Columbia Refined Sugar costs no more than the Hongkong coolie refined product.   Some dealers sacrifice the best interests of their cus  tomers by selling the coolie refined sugar because they receive a slightly larger profit. ,  How can you tell what sugar you are getting! Simply ask your  grocer for British Columbia Sugar.  You can not mistake it because it is put up in packets of 5 lbs.,  which exclude dirt and moisture, and in clean white sacks of 18 and 20  lbs. each.
