Vill-  areal, has issued a sweeping decree against the  Jesuits in Mexico.   The decree says:  "During the life of the nation the church has  been a pernicious factor in disruption and discord, and has entirely forgotten its spiritual mission." " -N  The most drastic feature of the* decree is the ,  prohibition of confession.   Villareal gives as his  reason for this the charge that the confessional  and the sacristy in Mexico have become a menace  to morality.'  The decree issued in Monterey makes the following orders for the government of Catholic  schools and churches: ,  "1. All foreign Catholic priests and Jesuits'  of whatever nationality will be expelled from the  state of Nuevo Leon.  "2. Of the remaining Catholic priests those  who can not prove their complete abstention from  politics will be expelled*  "3. Churches will open daily from 6 in the  morning until 1 in the afternoon. Only priests  having permission to do so will be permitted to officiate.  "4. Confession is prohibited.  "5. The public, is prohibited from entering  the sacristy.  "6.' Church Shells shall ring only to celebrate  ;- fiestas in honor of the country, or for triumphs  of the Constitunonalwit afms.  "7. AU Catholic colleges sbaU be closed which  do not obey the programmes .and texts ordered  . by officials, and which do not have at their head  some professor who is a graduate of the normal  schools of the country, who will, be responsible to  the. government for any infraction of the rules.  "8. Any infraction of these laws will be punishable by a fine of from $100 to $500 and imprisonment from two to four months* or both fine  . and imprisonment."  Explaining the grounds for the action, Villareal 's decree reads:  "In the interest of public health, morality  and justice, the state of Nuevo Leon will limit the -  scope of the Catholic cburch,-wbicb has entirely  forgotten its spiritual mission, its sole right to be  recognized by modern society.   The church has  consecrated itself principally to conquest in politics.  To secure its object it always has been allied  with the reactionary government, and the des- '  pots, and even with foreign invaders.    It has  shown itself an implacable enemy to tbe liberal  movement and progress from the first revolution  of Ayutla until tbe present, and has fulminated  its ridiculous excommunications over the most  grand and glorious benefactors of "the" country,  Hidalgo, Juarez and Lared de Tejada.  "The pretorian and clerical rulings of por-  firib Diaz and Huerta, against which the Mexican  people have been struggling herocially for many  years, have bad the sympathy and assistance of  the Mexican church, the church has had its benedictions for the crimes and corruptions of Huerta,  and has unceasingly worked to incite the people  against the Constitutionalist cause."  "Some of the ceremonies of the church, were  criticised, Villareal alleging that in Mexico they  have tended toward the weakening of Ihe moral  character. He declared it the course of wisdom  to close the clerical schools for the present on the  ground that it is "a supreme national necessity  to stamp out at the root the arrogant abuses of  the Catholic church and remove the grave danger  which the institution represents."  CONTRACT SIGNED  The contract has been signed between the Dominion Government and Messrs. Whiteside &  Williamson for the construction Of Postal Station  " C " at the corner Of Main and 15th Avenue. The  structure, when completed, will cost about $90,000  and will form a very valuable addition to the  splendid buildings now on Mount Pleasant���������also  be a credit to the government.  SOUTH VANCOUVER  South Vancouver has been fortunate in placing -  her loans this year.   In spite of all the fool knockers have said and done her credit still stands high  ���������as it ought to���������for she is in the best financial'  position of any of the municipalities on this uplift,  not excepting even Vancouver.  What would have happened had the Gold policy prevailed we leave-to the imagination of the  now enlightened, ratepayer.  In the meantime a fair amount of work has  been provided, and unless the war panic deepens  suddenly and closes all avenues of financing the ������  balance of the year's programme will be duly  carriec. through.  We notice that a 3-plank walk has been laid  through the swamp on-Ferris road, thus enabling  the settlement on Collingwood Heights to reach  Victoria road quickly in ^all weathers.

Editor Western Call: ���������  Sir,���������Being through the Delta country recently I was delighted to see  that part looking so prosperous. The  hay crop, which is nearly all in/or,  ready for the barn, is a heavy one,  so that British Columbia will not want  to import very heavily in hay. The  grain, too, is looking fine, and heavy  crops are the rule. .Roots, too, although the weather in the early part  of the season was somewhat dry, are  good, while the potatoes are in splendid form, and the farmers are busy  with ithe early crop, shipping them  to the prairie, cities and towns, where  the season is much later. f  My friend who accompanied me  has been farming in Alberta for 22  years on the same farm, now having  retired, has come to live in Vancouver. To say he was astonished at  all he saw on the Delta would be putting it mild, as he declared he never  had heard of it, and did not know  there was anything like it to be seen  in British Columbia. I "expect he  thought Alberta had all the farm lands  there was worth haying, and he  could well understand why Alberta  hay was not wanted here worse, than  it is after seeing the immense crops  they have right here. The homes,  too, of the farmers was quite a revelation to him with their croquet and  tennis courts, and cement drives into  garage or stable, being so faf ahead  of Alberta generally. I fancy it almost made him wish he could start  over again and > farm out here. Of  course if you mention the fact to any  of the farmers about the appearance,  tending as it does to prosperity, they  say its all very well but we cannot  make any money, but the complainer  is generally all right.  But really, Sir, there is one part of  their farming I do not wonder at  their complaining about, and that is  the price they are getting for their  milk, which they say is not enough  to pay them,- They are getting from  13 to 14 cents per gallon, and 'they  have to pay 2 cents a gallon transit  charges. Now, Sir, considering- the  price we pay here, I think someone  is getting more cream from it than the  farmer. ,   ' " "  Talk about profits on oil shares,  they are not in it as against' those  on milk, as a man may have a good  pull from oil if it turns out right, but  our milk dealers are making it turn  right 7 days each week and 365 days  each year. Paying as they now are  from 11 to 12 cents per gallon delivered and selling it for 40 cents, or in  other words what they pay 27 1-2 to  30 cents for the consumer pays $1.00  for, and that is goipg on every day,  so that their percentage as profit per  annum must be immense. Try and  figure it out; I will not, as it is best  not to know and it is surely enough  to make one. dizzy to try and get at  the real figures. When one comes  to consider how many business men  have gone under in the past year or  two, there are very few among them,  if any, engaged as milk dealers, and  with such a good business they have  no need to. We have to hear a good  deal said about the high cost of living, and right here we touch one of  the key notes, not because there is  a scarcity and such a high price has  to be paid to the producer, as I have  plainly shown that not to be the case,  but because the dealers want an exorbitant profit, which they extract  from homes, be they homes of the  well-to-do or those of the poor.     '  I am quite willing for the milk dealer to get a fair and good profit, as  he , in a sense, deserves it, working  as he has to 7 days each week, but  when he does not want to stop piling  it on, he should be brought to book.  Hoping to hear some other person's views on the subject, and trusting it may mean more quarts for the  dollar to the consumer, I will thank  you for the space, and remain.  .   Yours truly,  F. MOTT.  We do not think Mr. Mott is treating  the question quite fairly to the milk-  dealer.   Ed.  PANAMA CANAL'S GIANT GUN  IS READY FOR BREECH LOCK  Biggest Piece of Ordnance in the  World Will Guard Pacific Coast  Entrance to Ditch.  Washington, D. C. ��������� When its  breech locking device has been perfected at Watervliet arsenal, the great  sixteen inch gun, the biggest piece of  ordnance in the world, which has  just been shipped .from Sandy Hook  proving grounds, will be practically  ready for service on the Panama canal  fortifications. The gun probably will  not be shipped to Panama before  next spring.  Some idea may be had of the tremendous-power of this gun, destined  to protect the Pacific entrance to the  Panama canal, by the fact that it is  fifty feet long, weighs 142 tons, and  fires a projectile about six feet long.  The projectile itself weighs a ton and  is discharged by 665 pounds of powder. It required eight men to carry  the powder charge.  ���������, ��������� .  This gun has a maximum range of  from twenty-two to twenty-three  miles or half the distance between  New York City and West Ppint.  -When a shell leaves the gun it is  revolving around its axis at about four  hundred, revolutions per minute and  develops a pressure of 38,000 pounds  to the square inch. The projectile's  velocity of 2,250 feet per second gives  a muzzle energy o'f somewhat more  than .34,000 foot tons���������that is, an  energy capable of raising forty-two  tons one foot every second.  The price' of wheat is the lowest on  record for more than ten years. The  price of beef,' pork and of other meats  including poultry, of butter, eggs and  .wool is higher than at any time in the  past decade. ~ This argument in favor  of mixed farming is quite convincing  and effective.

When the  Admiralty withdrew from , Esquimau  the deepest regret was felt. This  was not, however, based on any fears  for the safety of the coast. The regrets were in. the hearts of society  dames at the capital, and of storekeepers at Esquimalt. Since then  the increase in the hold of the Japanese in British Columbia, the uneasy relations between Japan and the  United States, and more recently the  passage of the Alien Land Act in California have turned the thoughts of  British Columbians to the need for  considering the naval protection of  the. coast. The issue was given additional impetus by the discussion  which naval matters received in Canada over the rival naval policies.  Whatever be one's personal opinion  about the question of naval policies,  the fact remains that Canada exposes  six hundred miles of coast upon an  ocean where every large naval power  carries a fleet of warships. Canada's  Pacific commerce, which at present  passes through the port of Vancouver,  is shortly to be greatly augmented by  the opening of the National Transcontinental, upon which the people of  Canada have already expended upwards of $130,000,000. With half a  dozjm ocean lines planned to sail out  of Prince Rupert, the dwellers on the  west of the Pacific slope recognize  the, dangers which may attend any  posible embroilment with a hostile  naval power.  All of the opinions are not agreed  upon the danger of    the    situation  The late Sir William White, chief designer for the British Admiralty, was  not impressed with the danger.  "What is the danger of -an invasion  of the Pacific coast?" I once asked  Sir William as we travelled^ together  on one of the Grand Trunk Pacific  flyers which ply between Vancouver  and Prince Rupert.  "No danger at all; none in the  slightest. Why, there is no one with  whom Canada is at all likely ever to  get at loggerheads," he replied.  We deliver and hang  all Shades complete in place  Telephone Sey. 843  F. W.

People here  have the feeling that the Japanese  might some day be tempted to pay us  a visit?" I arguedi ."���������,'./   V  "No," replied Sir William firmly.  "There's no danger of that, and I will  tell you why. In the first place Jap.  ,an_JsV;an__aUyk:Of__(^  likely to remain so for many a long  day to come������������������"  -"And when, that    day    ends?"    I  queried. ������  "In, the second place, Japan has  learned a very valuable lesson, namely, that war is an expensive matter  to winners and to losers alike. Japan  was anxious for a chance to show  that she was a Power entitled to international respect, and she got her  chance against an old-time enemy  with the field of battle, both on sea  and on land, at her own doors, so to  speak. She won her contention in  the war, and she won a place of respect among the nations. She got  what she wanted. But Japan today,  in consequence, is struggling with the  burden of war loans. She has learned  the lesson of the costliness of war.  Her statesmen rank among the most  astute in the world. They can be  trusted never to rush into war without counting the cost. ./v. All things  considered, it was probably the best  thing that could have happened for us  that Japan got her war with the nation she did. It has saved the possibility of complications that might,  have affected England and Canada had  she gone to war with other possible  rivals."  "And your third point1, Sir William?" I reminded him.  "Oh yes, my third point is that  4,000 miles of ocean affords the very  best kind of protection that British  Columbia can have to guard her  shores from attack by an invading  force���������four thousand miles away."  Perhaps my scepticism was apparent on my face, for Sir William went  on: "Of course you make the mistake that every layman makes in  thinking that because we have fleets  of 20-knot battleships and 35-knot  torpedo flotillas, modern navies have  annihilated distance.   They have done  nothing of* the sort. The old wooe'en  walls of England, in which Nelson  fought, could go away for years at a  time to any part of the world If  they were damaged their commander  could effect repairs with his own.  crew. But a modern battleship is a  huge and costly mass of delicate machinery. She can only carry coal  enough to last for a few days at  forced draught. It would be madness  to send them into action without first  arranging for repair docks for the  injured vessels. In fact a modern  fleet cannot fight away from coaling  stations and repair yards. That is  why four thousand miles of ocean is  the best protection that British Columbia can get."  Unfortunately all do not share the  optimism of Sir William White.  Those who live on the Pacific coast,  least of all, regard its undefended  condition with equanimity. No one  anticipates that Canada will have occasion, even had she ' the, desire, to  ever have a formidable aggressive  force of her own on her Pacific coast.  The desire, as the need, is only that  defensive measures should not be neglected.  robably  there  is no  coast  in the  world that more readily lends itself  to  naval  protection  than   does  the  coast  of  British  Columbia.    Its  six  hundred'miles of coast is broken up  with bays and islands'until it has actually 7,000 miles of coastline.   From  the sea it presents the appearance of a  barrier of impassable mountains.   In  fact there are very few openings in  the, coast range at all, the larger inlets, such as Jervis Inlet, Bute Inlet,  Douglas  Channel  and the  Portland  Canal all ending in mountain fastnesses.   Only, Burrard Inlet in the south,  on which  the  port    of    Vancouver  stands, Bella Coola in   the   middle  north, which affords an entrance to  the Chilcotin country, and Prince Rupert in the north as the transcontinental terminus offer any openings  for attack.   Each of these openings is  approached   through   narrow  mountain rimmed entrances, which  form  natural Gibraltars.  But nature, the master strategist,  has placed lines of defenses to seaward.     For nearly    three,   hundred  miles the,southern mainland is pro  tected by the great bulk of Vancou  ver Island.   To the north the Queen  Charlottes spread    their    protection  over  nearly  two  hundred .miles  of  coastline," covering the approaches to  Vancouver.    All along the coast are  scattered a maze of mountainous islands! so that on the wonderful trip by  way of the inner passage from Vancouver to Prince Rupert open water  is crossed but twice, and then only  for a few miles at Millbank Sound  and Queen Charlotte Sound.   A more  magnificent coast .line for a torpedo  flotilla   to   operate  in  could  not  be  imagined.    Sir  William  White  paid  a tribute to the natural adaptability "bf  the coast line for defence, at the time  when he disclaimed the need for using it.  every nook and corner of the coast,  and with the approaches to the Vwo  great ports protected, the people of  British Columbia would feel secure  in the face of any reasonable possibilities.  Many observers predict, that, if  ever a clash of arms at sea takes place  between the United States and Japan,  the cockpit of war will be within hailing distance of British Columbian  waters, off the south coast of Alaska.  By a seizure of Alaskan territory,  Japan could hope to force the.United  States to fight under conditions of  equality so' far as a mutual absence  of coaling stations and repair docks  is  concerned.    Such   an  eventuality  alone makes it seem desirable that  Canada be prepared to insist on the  integrity of its own coast line. - ,  At present a great repair dock, subsidized by the Canadian Government,  is undergoing construction at Prince  Rupert. Of equal importance from a  naval viewpoint is the/report that oil  has been found on the Queen Char;  lotte Islands in a portion of land on  the west coast that had previously  been reported by the Dominion Geologic Survey to be oil territory. With  the new use of crude oil as a fuel,this  discovery, if proven to be well founded, may have an important effect on  deciding where Canada's future naval  base in the North Pacific shall be.  Standing far out at sea, like a sentinel watching for the first glimpse  of shipping from the Orient, stands  the lighthouse and wireless station at  Triangle Island, off the northwest  coast of Vancouver Island. Its information about homeward-bound  vessels is flashed to the wireless stations at Estevan, Pachena, Point  Grey and Prince Rupert. The Department of JMarine is at present engaged in the construction of a similar  station on an island at the extreme  entrance to Dixon's Entrance. With  the wireless stations far out in the  ocean, with a barrier of islands and  dangerous channels protecting the  approaches to the coast, with the long  and dangerous run up the narrow  Strait of Juan de Fuca, to enter the  Strait of Georgia and the lower coast  ports, and the long run through Dixon's Entrance or Hecate Straits to  reach Prince Rupert, Nature has  erected a triple chain of defences as  valuable for defensive warfare today  as Wellington's famous lines of Torres  Vedras were against the power of  the French army.  The development of the fishing industry on the Pacific coast has proven  at once the need and the answer to  the problem of how to man a navy.  With the fishing industry in the  hands of the Indian and the Jap, there  was no hope to secure the men for  naval service. Now that the fishing  industry has attracted white fishermen from Labrador and as far afield  as Grimsby in England and Peterhead in Scotland, the problem of getting the men bids fair to being solved.

THE CHICAGO FIGHT ON  COMMERCIALIZED VICE  Chicago has decided to abolish its segregated  district As is usual in such cases the police force  will not obey orders.  Chicago has been compelled to enlist a "moral  police squad," and recently whilst this force was.  at work trying to uproot the evil so long and  persistently protected by the police, two of the  "moral squad" were shot���������one killed outright,  ���������- the other seriously wounded.   The city police are*  , implicated in the shooting, and Capt. Ryan, police  ' chief of the segregated district, has lost his button.  But the newly appointed captain is not beginning  well according to the following despatch:  Chicago, June 24.���������A maze of tunnels, .secret  passages and hiding places have been uncovered  by the police in a raid on a notorious levee resort.  Dressers with no drawers in them, the vacant  - space furnishing a; hiding place, a wall safe that in  reality was the enerance to a tunnel under the  street, and hiding places in caves built under  _' closets were among the devices. ������A notorious all-  night dance hall called the "Gibraltar," which  was threatened with closing by the new police  captain.of the district, remained k>pen until after  daylight today as usual.  The Committee of Fifteen have issued an appeal for help to" every father and mother in Chicago. They claim that there are from 15,000 to  20,000 profesioual female prostitutes in Chicago,'  and that it takes 5,000 young girhvevery year to  keep the ranks full. It is fearful comment on our  civilization to find that the force organized to  enforce law and order is the protector and abettor  of such a terrible state/ of things.; even, to tbe  . point of murdering those who seek to alter conditions.  THE TWELFTH  A supercilious element intne community will  affect to regard with scorn tomorrow's parade  and display of regalia. With all the superiority  of a shallow cynicism they will smile at the mustering of lodges, the beating of drums, and the de-;  livery of set orations. Amongst those who will  sit in the seats of the scornful must be numbered  many so-called Radicals and Radical newspapers,  who, in their championship of clerical dictation,  reveal themselves as really belonging to a reactionary school.  _ l_Those_who_ scoff forget that jt is to Orangemen, and patriots of their mettle, that we owe the  civil and religious liberties which we all enjoy.  In past centuries they fought, and fought successfully, for the freedom of all to worship according to their" respective lights. The Orange-  Order may from time to time contain extremists,  but it asks for no special privileges for itself or  for Protestants. Throughout the history of Confederation in Provincial and Dominion elections,  it has assisted first one political party and then  the other, according as each has been time to the  ideals for which the organization stands.  Orangemen were largely instrumental in defeating the Tupper Government when it attempted  to force separate schools on Manitoba. They  helped put the Laurier Ministry put of office because of its high handed action in imposing a  dual educational system upon Saskatchewan and  Alberta. They were with the Whitney Administration on the bi-lingual school issue, and today  they are throwing all their weight against the  Roblin Government because it is suspected of  catering to ultra-montanism in. Manitoba. In  each instance they have battled not for special  advantages for themselves, but always for an  absolute equality of all before the law.  So it is in Ireland today. In refusing Home  Rule, the Ulstermen are demanding no hew benefits for themselves. They seek no rights which  they would not concede to the majority of Irishmen. They seek no whipband oyer the Nationalists. Instead, they simply ask that the Nationalists shall not be set in authority over them.  Right is on their side, because they contend for  the equality of all. This is why they must win.  Tt is why the Asquith Government dares hot  coerce Ulster.  It is one reason why Mr. Asquith's majority  in the House of Commons is shrinking, and his  non-conformist following in the country seems  gradually to be falling away. Faced by the dangerous deadlock into whieh it has got the country,  the Government may even be riding for a fall in  order to shift the burden of the crisis to other  shoulders. The principles for which the Orangemen stand must triumph in the British Isles and  throughout the Empire, to the end that all religious denominations may be upon a level footing  within the body politic, and that the civil power  may be subject to none.���������Sir John "Willison in the  Toronto Daily News. !-  i-  Madame Caillaux  w Madame Henrietta Caillaux, wife of an ex-  Premier of France, wfeo, on Mare)) 16 last, ������hot  and Wiled Ga������ton OaJmette, editor of Tlie Figaro,  wm, on Monday night, formally acquitted by a  jury of her countrymen of tlie crime of murder.

['[  The paving of Victoria road has been let to  the Bitulithic Company. This will be a sufficient  guarantee that a good job will be made of the  pavement, the work executed by this firm having  always been satisfactory.  However, this does remove the responsibility  from the shoulders of the-Council, to see that4he^  contract is lived up to. It is hoped tbat not a  day will be lost in getting the contract signed up  to enable the company to rush the work forward  before the, wet weather sets in.  After ihe paving of Bodwell road and Victoria  road are completed the municipality will have  three as good main roads as there are in Canada.  Bitulithic has secured a permanent hold in the  Peninsula, and if the position is to be maintained  it can only be by work being turned out that  there can be no quibbling about.  No one recognizes better than the paving companies the value of getting! good pavement laid  in Vancouver and South Vancouver. ,  The class of pavement laid here will largely  dominate the action of other municipalities  throughout Western Canada. Under these cir-  . cumstances we expect that every contractor looking to future work will see that he gives a satisfactory job.

BOATS  FOR PACIFIC COAST TRADE  The two new Coast steamers for the C. P. R.  are approaching completion, and will sail this  fall for Vancouver via the Panama canal.  Proportionately,.the Princess Irene is almost  as far advanced as the Princess Margaret, which  was recently floated with such success on the  Clyde/The hull is all plated and the shell of the  superstructure is well advanced, while much Of  the machinery has also been installed. It is expected that the date for the launching ceremony  will be set within the next few days.  Capt. Troup says that since the-Princess Margaret was put into the wafer, her boilers have  been installed and the work of fitting out the  palatial craft is going on apaee. As the contract  does not call for the delivery of the new ships before the beginning of next year, the fitting out  of the vessels will not be rushed. By the time  the Princess Irene is floated she will be almost as  far advanced as the Princess Margaret,; and it 4s  expected that they will be despatched from the  Clyde for Vancouver almost simultaneously.  Capt. Troup says that the Princess Margaret  will not leave the British coast before the early  part of November. Both vessels are coming to  this coast by way of the Panama canal, and should  be here before Christmas.       ���������  B. C. HALIBUT FOB THE OLD COUNTRY-  A new development in the expansion of the  trade of British Columbia that shows every prospect of commercial success is contained in the  announcement made a few days ago in London  by Sir Robert Gresley,' chairman of the Alberta  Land Company. In addressing 'the annual meeting of the company, Sir Robt. said that the first  arrival of halibut from British Columbia in Liverpool had been eagerly taken up, and this consignment had proved so satisfactory that th������ directors were encouraged to increase the tonnage of  the fish in future shipments. He said that he was  convinced that within a few years a large and,  profitable trade in fish between British Columbia  and the Old Country could be built up.  OIL IN PALESTINE  Jerusalem  .

We have had the pleasure of meeting the director of this gigantic exploitation, who speaks  enthusiastically of wealth that is hidden round  about Hebron, Beersheba and the Bead Sea.

TEMPERANCE  ���������j������4Hfrfr^wft4"H'4>'4HMfr4^4*Sw4HM4^  WEST VIRGINIA LIQUOR LAW  The first day of July every saloon, brewery  and distillery in West Virginia was. closed under state-wide Prohibition adopted at the November election in 1912 by nearly 100,000 ma-  .- jorjty. -  The law enacted to carry into effect the Prohibition amendment is perhaps the most stringent statute of the kind in America. Experts  declare there is not a |oop hole in it. Every  time attorneys for the liquor interests examine  it they throw up their hands, for they can find  .no way to escape its povisions. !  Under this law it will be .unlawful to manufacture, sell or give away intoxicating liquors  anywhere within the state. It is also unlawful to  ship intoxicating liquors to violators of law. It  is unlawful for druggists or club houses to keep  intoxicating liquors. The druggists of the state,1  at their annual meeting, asked the legislature to  insert this prohibitive provision in the0 statute. It  is also .unlawful to advertise liquors by bill  boards, circulars, newspapers or otherwise.  Any violation^ of this law is punishable by  fineand imprisonment in the county jail for the  first offense and by fine and imprisonment in the  , state penitentiary for the second offense.   Prosecuting attorneys are allowed all necessary funds j  and officers to assist in the detection and punish-1  ment for a state superintendent of Prohibition f  who shall have general supervision of the state'  and who shall have power to see that the Prohibition law is enforced.  - The Pennsylvania railroad recently closed itsl  saloon in the Pittsburgh,station, and no morel  liquor will be sold at the station or on the trains]  of this company.   This action is due largely to J  public sentiment. .Prohibition is^spreading like  fire in Pennsylvania, and the state will undoubtedly be dry in la few years.    The Pennsylvania'  railroad has ordered its employes to quit drinking, and the public demands a square deal.   If  liquor is a bad thing for workingmen it is just  as bad for officers and patrons, and should be  kept away from all.   Just as soon as the public J  show that they mean business the temperance  question will be settled.-^-Rural New Yorker.  .  The Joliet branch of the Illinois Steel Company not only prohibits its men drinking while on |  duty, but ^says all promotions will go to abstainers, , Here is the notice as signed by the president  and general superintendent and posted-in the  plant:  , "'For the promotion of safety and welfare, it  is hoped that all employes will avoid the use of (  intoxicants. Under the rules of the Joliet works,  any employe who uses intoxicating liquors while  on duty will be discharged.

The  heads of departments and their foremen will be J  expected to observe this rule in advancing their r  .men."-: .      -V' ��������� ��������� ^  The Diamond Match Company put this order  into effect the first of 'June: .  "Commencing with June 1,1914, all employes  of the company must refrain from using intoxicating liquors, and all officers shall refuse employment to men known to,frequent saloons."  As an economic issue the liquor question is  receiving attention from corporations and employers generally, while employes, as a rule, are  well-pleased with such action.

For the, first  time in British history the army cannot be relied on to enforce the will of  the civil power in a part of the King's  dominions. The Ulster volunteers are  armed to the teeth, and are with difficulty held in restraint while the political manoeuvring goes on. The constituted authority is almost helpless  to keep its will supreme in Ulster  when that will crosses that of the  Covenanters. Opposed to this armed  force is another waiting for developments. In 891 drilling centres the  number of Nationalists volunteers is  153,000. It is estimated that the Nationalist force in Ulster itself is 100,-  000. No solution of the impasse seems  available that will even approximately satisfy the two sides. ' Even a general election now might have the effect of merely postponing the trouble  !. The House of Lords has made such  amendments to the Home Rule  Amending Bill as the Ulster forces  laid down as the minimum they will  accept. The government must in a  few days accept or reject these  amendments and take its chances on  the keeping of the peace in Ireland.  Even if the Asquith government  feels compelled to grant the demand  for the indefinite exclusion of Ulster  as a province, .w.hat a wreck it will  have made of the social and political  integrity of Ireland! Some of its  supporters have urged that exclusion  is no settlement of, the Irish problem.  The crossing,and recrossing lines of  commerce between Ulster and the  rest of Ireland, the educational and  professional ties between them, the  administration of public utilities and  government services must be readjusted, and in a way that will react-to  the injury of all Ireland. The creating of a separate administration for  Ulster involves a breach of unity that  will in many respects' be crippling.  These are advanced as reasons why  Ulster should not be permanently excluded. But when the temper of a  large> proportion of the Ulster population is set determinedly against inclusion, when It prefers civil war to  Bird'seye View of New British Columbia University  sponsibility for the damaging separation is chiefly on those who thought  they could dragoon the people of Ulster into a hateful submission. The  "army plot" a- few months ago revealed how the conspirators against  Ulster's freedom of choice hoped to  avoid the disastrous consequences of  the Home Rule programme. The plot  failed because the officers' of the army  would not be a party to it. Now it  seems inevitable that the partitioning  of Ireland must be carried out in ,the  face of all the adverse consequences  flowing from it.  This is the price the Asquith Government must pay for its surrender to  Redmond. It is tremendously heavy as  .compensation for a few yeras* lease of  office. The "strategy" by which the  government/Hoped to profit by the  corrupt alliance without smashing  the peace or integrity of Ireland  seems to have gone amiss. If Redmond insists as the last letter of his  compact, that the government reject  the Lords' amendments to , the  Amending Bill, what then? Does the  government, knowirijg the unwillingness of the army to act as the in-\  strument Of .^-coercion in Ulster, pro-1  pose to set the Nationalist volunteers  at the task? Is it prepared in its callousness to have-Irishmen fly at each  others' throats? Surely the humanities of twentieth) century statesmanship must triumph over any such design. It all depends on what the  government is ready to do with Redmond.  ���������From Kamloops Standard  WiUiam Stanley, Painter and Decorator, who has been in Vancouver for 14  years, has opened a Paint Shop at the  corner of Granville and Helmcken Sts.'

This overwhelming expression of sentiment of the populace of that time finds in a de-_  gree repetition in the recently closed episode of the shipload of Hindus, whose leaders thought that by some technical flaw in our Canadian laws they would be enabled to land in our midst a' number of  tbetaoj^  t British Columbia, woiild i^e formed but the advancejguard of count--  less hordes tojollow. ,  Notwithstanding the attitude of some people, whose opinion on a  question of this nature is apt to be swayed more by sentiment than  reason, we in British Columbia have every reason to congratulate ourselves on the outcome of the Komagata Maru incident. Now that it is  over, no one will deny its serious aspects, nor that it was fraught with  great menace to the industrial and labor situation of our Province.  The histoiy of nations has shown that the policy of over-protection has its' evils equal in measure to those of the wide-open door, but it  is generally conceded that the successf upgrowth of the adolescent com-  ^munity is dependent upon the protection afforded to its individuals  ' and the enterprises in which they are engaged.   So, our laws, which  know not sentiment, but recognize only justice and equality, are framed.  But in security of the protection which we in British Columbia -  now enjoy, we are apt to overlook just such loopholes which the promoters of the, JComataga Maru enterprise hoped to, but^ fortunately for %  us, failed to find.,  In Hong Kong, which is British only in the sense of its being a  treaty port ceded to Great Britain by the Treaty of Nanking in the  ^ea^842r4here ar^variou^^ -  sugar refining.    .-���������'> .._      <>.,���������;/. -',.,."���������.' ,  TnvV'ancouver, BritishvColumbia, we also have many thriving industries; and'that of the British, Columbia Sugar Refining Company,  whjch employs oyer 300 white workmen and disburses annually a sum  closely approximating two million dollars, is by no means the least important ;. "'. ."���������;', ��������� ��������� '"���������."���������'���������'������������������������������������������������������"  Is it then reasonable, or in keeping with our policy of protection,  to encourage in any way the sale or consumption in Vancouver of sugar refined in Hong Kong by Asiatic coolies, towards whose exclusion  our efforts are so' vigorously directed, when we can obtain at no greater  cost sugar equally as good, and refined by white workmen who live in  and form a part of our own community? Unfortunately, however,  this is just what is happening in Vancouver today.  .There are in Vancouver today certain importers and dealers who persist in importing and selling Hong Kong coolie refined sugar. They do this knowingly���������for a pos-  sjible few cents extra profit to themselves���������  ���������in which the public do not benefit.  ���������but rather do they lose,  ���������because every pound of Hong Kong coolie refined sugar sold in Vancouver means  a pound less of sugar refined in Vancouver,  ���������and a consequent reduction in a Vancouver payroll;  ���������AND SUGAR REFINED IN VANCOUVER COSTS NO MORE.  If you would supinely accept conditions such as the action of these  dealers would impose, it will not concern you whether the sugar you  buy is Hong Kong coolie or British Columbia refined; but if, on the  contrary, you are* interested; in the welfare of Vancouver, you will  make it a point to ask for and get the sugar which is refined in British Columbia.

The  bride was attired in a beautiful robe  of crepe de chine arranged with cream  colored guipure lace, and carried a  bouquet of roses and white sweet  peas. There was neither bridesmaid  nor groomsman, little Miss Marion  Telford following the bride as flower  girl; while Miss Virginia Odium, a  niece of the groom, played a wedding  march. Masses of white flowers decorated the drawing room, where the  company of guests assembled for the  ceremony, while throughout the other  apartments pink and white sweet peas  were used with much effectiveness.  After supper, Rev. George and Mrs.  Odium proceeded by motor car to  New Westminster, en route to Harrison lake. Upon their return they will  take up residence in Vancouver.

We are in Mexico and are governing  a city there. We are in Nicaragua  and are (guarding a city there. We  are going into Haiti and into San  Domingo. The North American is  spreading his influence over the Caribbean because he cannot help himself and the spreading is not peaceful.   It is done with rifles.  There is no plotting against the liberties of smaller nations. There is no  design to take over their possessions.  There is in Washington an aggressive  resistance ��������� of the influences which  widen the national sphere. Mr. Wilson is concerned to protect the freedom of the smallest, weakest neighbor. Mr. Bryan is their true and  earnest advocate, and yet, under their  administration, marines and sailors  go into new ports and raise the flag  over new lands.  There is something that Mr. Wil-'  son and Mr. Bryan are not escaping  by opposing. It may be destiny.���������  Chicago Tribune.  but with the personal Bryan behind  the word, it is magnetic.  To concede this evangelical usefulness to Mr. Bryan is to pay a small  debt to justice. We regard M-.  Bryan as almost a total loss as secretary of state, but as a great ^evangelist both in and out of politics.���������  Chicago Tribune.  BRYAN THE MORALIST  Mr. Bryan says he regards the opportunity of addressing his fellow  Americans "in the Chautauqua frame  of mind" as one of the greatest any  patriotic American could ask. We  believe not only that Mr. Bryan is  sincere, but that the service he does  with his vitalized platitudes is' enormous. He comes to men and women  who do not want sophistication or  brilliance or profundity, but who are  eager for the energized morality of  this evangelist. (  Bryan is a great preacher 0f great  usefulness. The Chautauqua platform  is his pulpit. He is all the vitalized  maxims of the world's experience in  morality and justice. He can give his  auditor a law of life dated from the  first dawn but seemingly just come  to life and meaning. Generally when  he writes, the word is dead. He is  alien te grace and a stranger to form,  THE LORD OF THE ISLES  Los Angeles, Cal.���������A few days ago  the body of the seventeenth Earl of  Caithness, peer of Scotland, found  its resting place in an alien soil.  Three years a resident of Los Angeles, but two persons here knew that  the John Sutherland Sinclair living  quietly and simply at the Hotel Balboa, was of a line that in the days before Robert Bruce held almost regal  sway over half of Scotland, including  the northern isles.  Owned Millions of Property  Both were (pledged to secrecy, but  some time this week letters under the  seal of the crown office of,Scotland  will be submitted to Judge Rives in  the probating of the dead man's estate which will show that his full  titles were Earl of Caithness, Lord  Berriedale of Scotland, and Baronet  of Nova Scotia, and that he was the  owner of a castle seat in Aberdeen  shire and of much property.  All this property beyond the sea is  entailed upon his successor, who is his  brother, Hon. Norman MacLeod  (Sinclair) Buchan of Auchmacoy  House,  Ellon,  Aberdeenshire.  A monument which was reared yesterday over the grave bears, in accordance with his last wish, this in-  scriptiop "John Sutherland Sinclair,  Earl of Caithness, died May 20, 1914."  Met Confidant in Chicago.  Ten years ago the Earl of Caithness met Corridan H. Putnam in Chicago. "I knew at the time that Mr.  Sinclair was the Earl of Caithness/'  Mi. Putnam said' <when questioned  today.  During his residence here he maintained an office with Mr. Putnam,  who is the head of a mining engineering company. From there he administered his charities, which were  numerous and in keeping with the nature of the man, of the self-effacing  kind.  FORTUNES IN BOTLED SMOKE  , Bottled smoke is no longer expressive of a whimsical impossibility. The  absurdity of yesterday is today an  'English commercial commodity worth  thousands of pounds per annum.  Belching smoke and- nauseous fumes  which formerly obscured the sky and  poisoned the air are now being collected and shipped to Germany,  France, and even far away Japan.  Many an almond . eyed enthusiast  runs his motor on "smoke" from a  Durham coal pit; German engineers  cannot get enough of it, while the  French motor firms could very well  do with twice the present available  supply. Commercially, it is an acid,  produced from coal in the process  of conversion into coke, the finished  article closely resembling ordinary  petrol. Costing about one-third less  than petrol, benzol is claimed to answer all purposes for which the older  spirit is used.  ST. SAVIOUR'S CHURCH.
