A strong effort was made by Councillor Bridge-  [man, seconded by Councillor Loutet, to exclude  (the public during the reading of the Engineer's  report.   On a vote, these gentlemen were rein-  > forced by Mayor Irwin and Aid. Vance of North  'Vancouver, who also wished the public excluded.  Mayor Baxter, Aid. Woodside, Reeve May and  Reeve Lawson voted for a public hearing, and the  .Hon. Carter Cotton,'by a casting vote, allowed the  public and press to remain.  It seems strange that the four gentlemen first  above named, and who have been reported as  favoring an award to an Eastern bidder, should  want to keep these reports secret, while the mem*  bers of the Board who have expressed themselves  K so often and so strongly in favor of the local manufacturers, are more than anxious for the public  and press to know all that transpires.   Reeve May  o$ North Vancouver made some very trenchant  remarks condemning any attempt at Star Chamber methods, and expressing his strong desire for  .the public to^knoweverything thatvtraiispwed in  I connection with this matter, which wai'a ipurely  I public'one.-VV" \'V: '  The report as read strongly favored an Eastern  l)bidder, and lengthily condemned the design of  ]the local-tenderers.   Jn this regard it might be  said thatthose responsible f or this report seem  to have gone too far, thereby defeating their own  ^object; it being apparent even to the lay mind,  that an unbiased reporf could hardly find one design all good and another all bad.  Mr. Turner is an experienced bridge engineer  I of recognized and undoubted ability, and the local  (manufacturers associated with Mr. Turner in his  ibid stand so highly in the Province that it is im-  I possible for a fair-minded person to accept with:  spot question a report that seems so strongly biased.  |, That no action was taken at this meeting proves  ^conclusively that a majority of the Directors took  [this view, and undoubtedly the merits or demerits  > of the Turner design will be exhaustively gone  fjnto before a decision is reached.  In this regard, the Directors are to be strongly  I commended for their sound common sense and  business acumen in not allowing themselves to be  -misled into making a hasty award that would send-  this work out of the Province.  Alderman Woodside, chairman of the Bridge  Committee of the Vancouver City Council, has  considerable experience in these matters, and no  doubt readily recognized the triviality of many of  [the objections raised against the Turner design.  Mayor Baxter's principles as to the support of  home industries are so clearly defined that he can  be depended upon to fight strenuously for anything that will put business into our local shops  and find work for our idle men.  ' Reeve May, who has held'office almost cpntihu-  jously for twenty-five years, is perhaps the best  known and highly thought of public man on the  North Shore, and with his large interests, which  lare concentrated right in the Municipality of  [North Vancouver, and with the feeling of the obligation he owes to the people who have so many  times elected him, there is no doubt thatf he will  | adhere consistently in the course that is for the  [benefit of the people of British Columbia.  Reeve Lawson, of West Vancouver, is also a  [very practical man, and it is not easy to deceive  Ihim with technical trivialities, or to mislead him as  [to the true values of the designs before the Board,  ind he is too loyal a supporter of Greater Vancouver and her industries to support any action  [that would tend to send a job of this magnitude to  [the East, thereby proclaiming our lack of faith in  )ur own industries.  With such men as these on the Board, and with  .the Hon. A. L. Carter-Cotton (whose high repute  luring a long public career is unquestioned) as  j'chairman, the public can rest assured of fair play  [for the home industries, and that the interests of  [the people of this Province will be absolutely  I safe-guarded.  The Manufacturers' Association has been very  [active in this bridge matter, and has effectively  [disposed of many of the ridiculous reports circulated to the detriment of the local firms by those  (Continued Page 5)  THE BARAMBA MINING CO.

The Conspiracy of Silence  At a meeting of the directors of the Calgary Petroleum Products Company, it was estimated that the output of oil at the company's well was not less than 250 barrels per day. At $9  perbtfrreT this woulbnaeW a re^ the  feasibility of which has been demonstrated by the machinery now in operation at tbe well, will result in a revenue of not less than $1,000 per day, or a total of both oil and gas of $3,250 every 2<  hours, or $1,186,250 per annum.  It will he freely conceded tbat tbe above facts point to a situation in Alberta, as regards  future devlopment, tbat will dwarf all stories of oil attainments in any field as yet exploited. Yet  witb tbis situation known and vouched for by the most noted oil experts in the world tbe Eastern  Canadian and the American press keep up a silence that, in view of tbe news features offeree,  alone, amounts virtually to a conspiracy against the West.  Some time ago the States took from two to three million dollars out of B. 0. over tbe California oil boom. Not a word was hinted over wild catting and restricting the mails to promoters.  But now when a field is being opened up in Western Canada that gives evidences of stores  of oily wealth that would make Aladin green with envy the East���������Canadian and American���������close  the columns of their press to all mention of the situation. Alderman Frost took a barrel of Dingman oil to Toronto and forced the Globe to a grudging admission of some possibilities. This matter is serious enough for the West to sit up and take notice.

The meeting called by Mayor Baxter for Tuesday night was one of the largest and perhaps the  most representative ever held in Vancouver. On  this question Vancouver is thoroughly united and '  unalternably opposed to Oriental immigration.  In spite of a certain amount of excusable excite*  ment the meeting was quite orderly and 40 or 50  Hindus showed their faith in British fair play and  obedience to law and order by being present and  voting in a body against the resolution calling for  immediate deportation of the Hindus.  H: H. Stevens, M. P., waat chief speaker of the  evening, and his strong and unequivocal utterances demanding Oriental exclusion were met  .repeatedly with bursts of applause.  Mr. H. H. Stevens was given an enthusiastic  reception when he rose to address the meeting.  He said it was not a pleasant or congenial task  that faded both him and the people of the province. The people of the province were a unit on  the question. It vitally concerned every citizen  in British Columbia and every citizen of Canada,  and a stand must be made on Asiatic exclusion.  No Political Significance.  V"I couldapproach the question we have come  to discuss from many standpoints," he continued,; -  'Mbiut I WiU 1^ present a few  facts on thia perplexing problem. , In the first  place I am glad; that the Mayor called this' meeting, and secondly I want to emphasize that it has  no political significance. It is not * a political  question. (Cheers.) J am not here as a member  of any political party, but as the representative  in Parliament of this city and as a Canadian citizen. Practically every citizen in British Colum:  bia is in favor of the exclusion of Orientals.  There may be a few exceptions but they demonstrate the wisdom of the majority.  "Briefly, we are faced with   the   question  whether our country, which finds its highest exemplification under Anglo-Saxon ideals and British rule shall be maintained as a white country.  We cannot allow indiscriminate immigration from  thei Orient and continue to build up the country  along the lines laid down in the foundations of  our national life.    I cast no aspersions on the  Asiatics, but we and they are distinct peoples.  It is not a question of the relative merits of the  two civilizations.   The question is will the Oriental civilization assimilate in a satisfactory manner with the people of this country?  I hold no immigration can be considered successful where it  will  not assimilate.    That is the fundamental  .principle_qf__suMessful _and__sought after immigration.   You can look at it from the racial, economic or social sides and from any it would be  disastrous to allow any large immigration of Asiatics. ... > .  V      Must Preserve Individuality  "In Canada we have seven and a half million  people. We have undertaken the gigantic problem of building up a nation which will be of the  highest credit to the peoples from which we  spring. Any immigration allowed must aid in that  work. In the Orient at our very door are eight  hundred millions of people. Their civilization is  distinct from ours and the least tremor of immigration from there would soon swamp us. No  people or race can absorb seven times its number  and preserve its individuality. If unrestricted  immigrants from the Orient had been allowed  in the past this province would have been  swamped already.  "It is not so much a question of settling the  country with the type of people we have here,  it is a question of what type the people of the  future in Canada is to be. It is a question of  whether we as Canadian citizens are prepared to  sacrifice the future for material benefits today.  There are men who would willingly grow rich  by paying low wages to these men from the Orient. They have no thought of lowering the standard of living by not giving a fair living wage.  (Cheers.) I ask them to take thought of what  may await their children and their grandchildren  in the future.    (Cheers.)  "Eastern Canada was settled with pioneers  who went into the forest and had hewed out  homes for themselves. They endured the hardships of pioneer life so that their descendants  might have a better lot. Not so with the newcomers from Asia. They want to establish themselves in our larger cities and pluck the plums of  our advanced civilization. (Applause.) They  have never evinced any willingness to take any  part in the frontier life of the country. Exclusion  of the Asiatics is not a question- of likes or dislikes but of national life or death," he declared  amid cheers.  "The threat has been made," the speaker continued- "that if we refuse them entrance to this  country that they will refuse Canadian workmen  access to their land. When have we ever asked  them to admit Canadian workmen? We cheerfully accord them the right to keep our labor  out.   (Cheers.) TBOffi WESTERN CALL.

NOTARY PUBLIC  Lumbering---The Greatest  Industry of British Columbia  i_ A Brief Sketch of Its Development by R. H. Alexander  Dow, Fraser & Co.  LIMITED  317-321 Cambie Street  2313 Main Street  Between 7th and 8th Aves.,  McKay Station, Burnaby  SHE GENERAL public is conversant with  the importance of this industry as it  appears today, but to only a few are  l_nown the struggles which the pioneers  in the-business had during its earlier years;  the handicaps under which they labored and  which were only overcome by their splendid  optimism, which spirit has been the great factor  in building up the lumbering business in British  Columbia, that is now advertising her so largely  throughout the entire world, and incidentally  making the name of Vancouver famous, for the  reason that a great portion of this business is  done through, and in, this city.  To Esquimalt and Sooke, on Vancouver Island,  must be given the credit for the first lumbering  mills in the province. These mills were comparatively small concerns as their business was  only done with the early settlers.  The year 1861 gave birth to the first mill  of any size which engaged in the export business.  This was situated at Alberni, and although it was  not a financial success, and had later to be abandoned, when the machinery was sold to other  mills on the Sound, a start had been made in the  export business, and it might truthfully be said  that from this enterprise has sprung the worldwide trade which is being done in British Columbia timber.  In 1882 a saw mill was established on the  Fraser river at New "Westminster, but with the  exception of, I think, one shipment for export,  this mill catered entirely to the local trade.  A year or two later, about 1863 or 1864,, some  of the men interested in. this mill opened the first  plant on Burrard Inlet at Moodyville, which was  followed by the building of the Hastings mills on  its present site in 1865; and with theVerection *of  these mills the foreign lumber trade of British  Columbia may be said to have commenced. For  a number of years the foreign trade of the province averaged from 25,000,000 to 30,000,000 feet  annually, until tlie Chemainus, Fraser river and  other mills came into operation, since when the  trade has variedfrom 50.000,000 to 80,000,000  feet per annum.  The advent of the Canadian Pacific railway  opened a market to the East, and mills began, to  multiply, .'-'v.  Until this time there was no market available'  but the foreign, arid larg'e quantities of lumber  that under conditions would, have found a sale,  used to be burned as the only way for its clis-  posal.   V-  It was a long time before our Douglas fir established itself; but it crej>t farther and farther  East, until now we have customers even on the  seaboard of the Atlantic provinces, and the quantity being shipped in that direction is ever increasing. Our export trade is distributed all over  the world, shipments being made to Australasia,  China, Japan, and occassipnally to India, Central  America, Peru, Chile and the Argentine Republic,  the United Kingdom, France and Germany; it  has even penetrated to Baltic ports, which might  appear like sending coal to Newcastle, and is being used in the modern development of that ancient country, Egypt, and aiding in the building  of Johannesburg arid the winning of gold in the  Rand mines of the Transvaal.  In several of these markets, however, our  wood is not in general use, But only taken in the  form of special sizes and lengths that cannot be  obtained elsewhere, our great distance from the  points of consumption and costly transportation  militating against itbeingusedin-amore general-  way. Until recently-the transportation of lumber has almost entirely been left to sailing vessels,  but steam is now competing for the business, and  when, by this means, the distant markets can be  reached more quickly, we may confidently expect  our trade with them to increase. With the expansion of the export trade it is.interesting to  note the increase there has been in the size of  the vessels used. In the early days of the trade  a vessel carrying over 400,000 feet was a large one,  and to supply a cargo of 1,000,000 feet was an  undertaking so colossal as to make a mill manager stand aghast, while now it is a difficult  matter to obtain a vessel to carry such a  small cargo, and vessels carrying 3,000,000 feet  are not uncommon visitors..  Coincident with the increase in the size of the  vessels has naturally been the increase in capacity and improvement in the machinery of the  mills, from the mill of early days producing  50,000 feet, in which a great deal of manual labor  was employed, to those of a capacity of 200,000  feet per day, equipped with all the latest machinery and labor-saving devices, whilst the working1  day has been reduced from eleven and a half to  ten hours.  In 1886, when the Canadian Pacific railway  reached Vancouver, the output of the Coast mills  of British Columbia did not exceed 75,000,000  feet, and last year, including the shingle industry,  the output of British Columbia reached approximately 2,000,000,000 feet.  In that year the revenue arising from the forest was only $3,768, while last year it amounted  to $2,832,788. In making this comparison, however, a large ^share has to be credited to the  growth of the lumbering business in the interior  of the province. The development of the shingle  industry has also greatly assisted this result, as  the commencement of the same period of twenty  years ago there were only a few machines in use  supplying the local requirements and finding it  dificult to supplant the old hand-shaved shingles.  The excellence of our manufacture has not only  obtained for British Columbia shingles the trade  throughout Canada, but has gained them a preference in the United States.  The increase in the manufacture of lumber of  necessity required an increased production of the  ^raw material from the forests and an improvement in the methods of logging.  In the seventies, I think, the only two mills  having leases of timber land were the Hastings  mill and the Moodyville mill, for which they paid  the Provincial government 1 per cent, per acre  without any further dues, and the revenues could  not have amounted to more than $600,'from  which it has increased, as before mentioned, to  nearly $3,000,000. Whilst these mills operated  their own camps on their own leases, others cut  timber wherever they felt inclined, no one then  placing any value on the standing timber. Oxen  were the motive power used for the transport, of  the logs to the water, and the most important man  in the camp and the one getting the highest wages  was the bull-puncher, or teamster, who gained  the above name from driving with a goad stick,  in the end of which was inserted a brad which  was liberally used, along with, a good deal of  strong language, to make the cattle exert themselves. When moving from camp to camp a  teamster generally carried his goad stick as a  sort of insignia of office, and it may be a surprise to hear that $5 was an ordinary price for a  good hickory goad stick. The teamsters' wages  ran as high as $125 per month without the deduction for lost time, and it was a sight to see their  skillful manoeuvring of' a team of twelve and  sometimes fourteen bulls in the dense woods. At  this time there were also a number of what were  "called hand loggers, who, finding a locality where  timber grew on a slope close to the beach, with the  aid of packscrews, wedges, an axe and a crosscut  saw, put in the water^no inconsiderable part ot  the log supply. Later on the camps substituted  horses and mules as being faster than oxen, but  all these methods have been practically superseded by the use of steam haulers with fully  equipped railways for the main roads where the  operations are of sufficient magnitude.  Until comparatively recent years the only  lumber manufactured by the mills was the Douglas fir, which I regret to say, is known abroad  more generally under the commercial name of  OregonV pine. How it received that name it is  difficult to account for, as the first shipments  were sent abroad from Puget sound, then Washington territory) but the. name has remained and  it is most difficult to change a name which by  use has become a familiar commercial term. Our  British Columbia product, I am pleased to say,  has in many instances, a preference as having a  closer grain, arid in Europe, at least, is frequently  referred to as Columbian pine, in contradistinction to the other. Our other woods of commeic-,  ial use are;,cedar, spruce and hemlock.  Our cedar furnishes the material for our lai ge  shingle trade, and is in request also for finishing  lumber and the manufacture of doors and sashes.  j Spruce is not so plentiful, but the upper grades  find a ready sale in various forms; while the lower  furnish the material for .box-making. The last'  wood I have mentioned is hemlock, and hitherto  hardly any use has been,made of it except for  piles, and for no other reason that I know of  than itsiname. The hemlock of the Pacific coast  is a very different tree from that in the East, being much longer in fibre;. it is somewhat harder  than spruce, though less than fir. Experiments  with it have proved it a first-class wood for in-  - terior finish, and I really-believe that its use will  quickly increase when prejudice is overcome, atd  will be esteemed as highly as our fir is at present.  Logging operations on the coast of British Columbia will always be .expensive and rapidly iu-  Vcrelile m^  this country- This generally rises sharply from  the seashore without any large areas of fairly  level land. This necessitates constructing roads  from the shore at several different points to obtain the timber from one .moderately sized limit,  and it becomes a question whether there is enough  timber tributary to any road to justify its construction. As the timber within easy reach of  the shore becomes exhausted, this condition will  be intensified in proportion to the length, of the  roads necessary, and only large, compact areas  of timber will justify the expense of building  railroads many miles inland. The cost of working small areas will rapidly increase, and I am,  therefore, of the opinion that the price of the raw  material will have to increase accordingly. If  my view is correct it follows as a certainty that  the price of the manufactured article must increase also, and this, I think, will be the case generally on the Pacific coast. The rapid exhaustion of many former sources of supply of con-  structural timber leaves practically but two large  areas available for future supplies. These are the  yellow pme region of the South and the Pacific  Northwest. s  There is one agency which yearly takes a  greater toll than the manufacturers. I refer to  fire. Each year we see large areas of timber destroyed, the ultimate value of which is certainly  not realized by the public. I trust that public  sentiment will be awakened to the necesity of protecting the timber supply, which we possess,  whilst preparing for the reproduction of our  forests in the future.

The  electoral  district of Cariboo,  comprising the provincial electoral   districts   of   Cariboo,   Lillooet,  Kumeolon Inlet���������Skeena  Land  cording District  A tract of logged-off timber land  on Kumeolon inlet, fronting on the  tidal lake at its head, about three  miles from Grenville channel, has been  sub-divided into lots of 40 acres, and  will be open to entry by pre-emption  at.the office of the government agent,  Prine Rupert, B. C, at 9 o'clock in  the forenoon Auguet llth, 1914.  The sub-divisions, with one or two  exceptions,; are along the lake shore.  They are well situated, being for the  most part on or near the big flat  around the mouth of the larger of  two creeks which drain to the lake, a  tidal sheet of water sheltered from  every wind by the mountains on  nearly every side." Climatic conditions are similar to those at Prince  Rupert and Port Essington, from  which place the land lies about  twenty-five miles to the southward.  The land is thirteen miles from the  Standard cannery and sixteen miles  from "Ciaxton. The temperature,  even in winter, is mild and the rainfall : heavy, especially in the winter  ! months.  As most of the land had been:well  timbered, it will take some tithe to  remove the. stumps, left after logging  operations; but, in Ihe opinion of the  surveyors, the land'is well worth the  trouble of clearing, as the soil is alluvial and very rich. When the land  was' being logged a small tract of  about an acre was cleared and planted. It was cultivated with excellent  results,- the produce being disposed  of it Port Essington. The' surveyors  used some of the vegetables, and say  they could hardly be surpassed for  quality and size on the^Coast.  The land is three miles up Kumeo'  ton inlet from Grenville channel, the  course of steamers between Victoria,  Vancouver and Prince Rupert and  northern ports. It is possible to get  into the lake during the flow of the  tide with a handy launch at nearly  any time, as the overflow caused by  rise of the tide in the narrow entrance seldom exceeds 4 feet. During  the ebb, however, it is nqt^ safe to  attempt the passage after the tide has  turned for more than twenty minutes.  The channel is very rocky and the  overfall soon reaches a height of between 8 and 10 ieet.____V.___.,:_,,,._ _____:_,  ror Rent and Sale Cards 10c ea.

TRAINED NURSES  TEND BABIES  London, England.���������It is the fashion  of the rich to employ trained nurses  to look after healthy babies in nurseries fitted up like operating clinics.  A great number of trained nurses are  doing what is simply the work of a  lady's maid for rich lad.es with imaginary ailments.  This complaint is made by Dr.  Bruce, medical superintendent of  Southward infirmary, in a report on  the dearth of nurses in institutions for  the poor.  "The skill and training of certificated nurses, he said, were being turned  into channels where they were wasted.  The rich were getting more than the.y  needed and the poor were i.oing to the  wall.  NEW WESTMINSTER LAND  DISTRICT  NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN  that I, Daniel Haney, of Port Haney,  B.

TEMPERANCE-DRINKING  IN  CLUBS  BRITISH VIEW OP HINDU QUESTION  The following editorial under the caption,  "British Citizenship," was published in the  Times, London, England:  "The inquiry into the claims of the Hindus  on board the Komagata Maru to be allowed to  enter Canada is still proceeding, but there can  be little doubt of its result. Canadians, as our  correspondent at Toronto showed in the article^  which he contributed to the Empire number of  the Times, published on May 25, are determined  not to allow Asiatics to enter the Dominion except under severe restrictions.. The promoters of  the enterprise which has brought a shipload of  Hindus to its seagates are equally determined to  assert the right of free entry on behalf of Asiatics  who are British subjects. We find it difficult to  believe that their action is approved by the wisest  of the Indian leaders. This is no hew controversy.  It has raged in an acute form in other parts of  the British Dominions before now. But the  champions of Indian rights who have taken most  trouble to master the question in all its aspects  have recognized that, like other questions, it has  tw6 sides. The best instance is that of Mr. Gok-  hale, a very distinguished leader of Indian opinion, who visited South Africa a year or so ago to  to investigate the grievances of his compatriots,  especially in Natal. He told the people of that  Dominion that there was no desire among the  subjects of the Crown in India to force any claim  for admission to the Dominions against the will  of the local populations: His mbderatioh and tte  fairness of his attitude made a very deep impression. The fruits of his visit are to be seen in the  bill to remedy the grievances of the Indian community in South Africa which has just been introduced into the South African Parliament. But  the claims of those who chartered the Komagata  Maru are very different. They are based on the  assertion that British "citizenship" involves the  right of unrestricted entry into any and every!  part of the British Dominions. That is the kind  of catch-logic Which may easily beguile theVun-  instructed. It should not for* a moment mislead  any intelligent person who will be at the trouble  to think out the meaning of the wor4s. It is  preposterous because it ignores the facts. The  facts are that free peoples have a right to say  whom they will admit into their country, just as  free men have a right to say whom they will admit into their house.   This right, is exerciseid in  ^rwticTTltTis^noTih^  operates quite irrespective of color, so that there  are numbers of men���������white, and subjects of the  Crown���������who are excluded from the Dominions.  . It is useless to say that this should not be. It is;  and the mere fact that it is shows that a phase  hi���������. "British citizenship" cannot be used as a  like  talisman to open the doors of men who are pre-  pared__to apply its prohibitions as much as its  privileges to their own kin.  CANADIAN HELD AS A SLAVE  London.���������An official mesage has been received in London from the British consul general  at Buenos Aires mentioning that an official of  the Young Men's Christian association, who has  just returned from the borders of Paraguay and  Brazil, relates that a British Canadian, named  Frank Wang, is being held in a state of slavery  on the Mate (Paraguayan tea) plantation. He is  declared to have made two attempts to escape,  but was on each occasion recaptured and flogged.  The consul general is investigating the affair.  A BY-PRODUCT OF CHRISTIANITY  A convention of Brahmin priests has been,  held at Amrister and attended by a thousand  delegates. The convention adopted a remarkable  set of resolutions, some of which laid violent hands  on venerable Brahmin customs and superstitions  accepted by 217,000,000 human beings. One of  these���������Brahmins ought to work for a living and  not subsist on charity. Another enjoined all  Brahmins to get education. A third, that all  Brahmins should disregard all sub-casts among  themselves and intermarry with due regard for  consanguinity. A fourth urged all Brahmins to  put an end to unnecessary and wasteful marriage  and funeral ceremonies. Perhaps the most radical resolution was the injunction to support  Brahmin widows and care for their orphan and  poor children. The president of the convention  urged upon all that they maintain a high moral  character in purity of mind with truth and honesty in all their dealings. This convention with its  conclusions may well be regarded as one of the  by-products of Christianity in India.  The general assembly of the Presbyterian  church in U. S. A. and Chicago Baptist Association have both passed resolutions calling upon  pastors and laymen of Christian churches to reform their clubs or resign from membership.  In an address last Sunday night Dr. Melbourne P. Boynton, pastor of one of the largest  Baptist churches in Chicago, said:  ''The world laughs at the minister who dances  with it, who looks on while it drinks, and mixes  with its tottering rottenness."  Dr. Boynton commended the ministers to a  cautious life. He attacked the clubs of the city  for operating bars, charged them with the ruin  of young men, and declared them more dangerous than the open saloon.     '_ '  "No man has any business in the clergy who  is not willing to walk carefully and sacrificially.  Above all men the minister must watch his words  and his walk,'' said Dr.. Boynton. '' The place for  the minister is far out on the frontiers of human  vision and spiritual attainment. The church  must ever climb to keep company with her minister���������where this is not true the church is declining and dying."  Assails City's Clubs.  Then the minister turned his attention to  clubs.  "What a pity it is that such influential clubs  as the Union League, the Hamilton, the University, the Press, and other clubs of political, commercial, and social nature have saloon features.  In some respects these clubs are more dangerous'  than the ordinary retail liquor saloon., Who can  tell how many hundreds of bright young men have  been ruined by these liquor annexes? Weak  minded but well reared young fellows lay the  foundations for drunkard careers in the seclusion and fancied safety of these high toned clubs.  If the club walls could talk, what tales of woe  they would tell.  "Chicago is America's leading city. Let it  lead in abolishing liquor from every respectable  club in its midst."  UP TO DATE HEALTH TALKS  - INTERNAL ACTIVITY  It will be unnecessary to speak of the need of  activity as regards the external muscles, as every  one does or should know of its value in building  the body for appearance at least. The external  muscles are the most easily and readily developed,  and, therefore, many Physical Culture teachers  depend on them to impress the public, and so  make a showing which catches the eye, though  internally they may be lamentably deficient in  strength and endurance. Many prominent athletes are for this reason ref used by Life Insurance  Companies. Therefore, the development of the  external muscular system without proportionate  internal development and/activity is incomplete  and often dangerous.  Internal or Involuntary Muscles.  The activity of the internal muscles and organs are of the very first importance, for unless  the muscles of the stomach are strong, disorders  will occur there. If the intestinal walls and muscles are weak, constipation with its train of  frightful results will follow���������nervousness, mal-  assimilation. piles, appendicitis and 40 other well  known diseases. Drugs .and enemas will only  mitigate the trouble for a time, and postpone the  day of reckoning. Therefore, if you wish to prolong and enjoy life exercise these muscles before  all others.  The most important muscle of the entire body  is the diaphragm or breathing muscle which separates the lungs and heart from the lower organs, though strange to relate the majority of  people do not know accurately where it is or what  its function is. It has a double duty to perform,  as it massages the internal organs, and in conjunction with the lungs is the great means of purifying the blood. This brings us to the question of  deep breathing in connection with the activity  of the internal muscles, as it is impossible to separate the two, and the relationship between them  will be taken up in the next issue of this paper.

THE FAMOUS WELBECK ABBEY  COMIN  GAL SIX  OF AGE SCENES  att,ittingrwe  1,400 Guests in an Underground Ball-  v room  Welbeck Abbey, world famous for  its vast under ground apartments,  was the scene of a memorable ball in  celebration of the coming of age of  Lord Titchfield, the . ldest son of the  Duke and Duchess of Portland.  The Duke of Portland has already  made publi,- gifts, including recreation grounds, in Nottinghamshire, to  the amount of about ������30,000 to commemorate Lord Titchfield's coming  of age and his own silver wedding.   ������������������  About; 1,000 guests were present,  and dancing took place in the wonderful underground picture gallery,  which has been described as the  "largest and most magnificent private  room in England." ��������������� ^'     -V  All the subterranean marvels of  ���������Welbeck are due to the eccentric fifth  Duke of Portland,. who ; Vwas consumed with a passion for privacy.  From his succession to the estate to  his death in 1879 he spent, it is said,  ������ 7,000,000 ;���������. on creating new wonders  for Welbeck. ...y .  V Of these the most celebrated is~.he  picture gallery,: entirely below ground  and excavated from the solid clay. It  is 160 feet long, 64 feet wide, and 22  JfeeLhighy; _At njgjfaejghj^en toquisite'  glass chandeliers reveal the priceless  paintings by old masters that cover  the walls. By day light from twenty-  seven prismatic sky lights softened  by passing through crimson silk,  floods the room. The flat roof is  level with the garden above, arfd one  can walk on soft, green turf without  knowing of the beauties below.  Tunnelled Park  The park is honeycombed with tunnels. From the entrance there is a  broad underground drive running a  mile and a half and ending before the  abbey. From the abbey tunnels run  in all directions for a total length of  eleven miles. They are light and airy.  Three persons can walk abreast on  their asphalt floors. One runs to the  Riding school, in which Mr. Joseph  Chamberlain spoke to an audience of  5,000 people. Thence another leads  to the Tan Gallop, a glass arcade  nearly a quarter of a mile long, which  is the finest indoor exercise ground  for horses in the world.  The guests arrived at the main entrance of the abbey and were conducted through the corridors to the  underground picture gallery, which  had been specially decorated. Pink  was the prevailing tone. Chairs, divans, and settees were in pink and  gold, harmonizing with beautiful  flowers from the Welbeck conservatories, including pink carnations, pink  roses, pink tulips, pink azaleas, and  pink rhododendrons. Great palms almost hid the orchestra, where Cas-  ano's band was playing. All the underground approaches to the picture  gallery were draped with green baize  and tapestry .  The Rose Corridor  The Rose corridor, 150 yards long,  had been arranged as a sitting out  room under the supervision of the  Duchess of Portland.  Here, too, pink  ������was the prevailing tone. Exotic  plants lined the corridor.  The underground apartments ordinarily used as' store rooms had been  converted into comfortable smoking  rooms richly decorated and artificially  heated.  Supper was < provided by the Welbeck staff, reinforced by oyer .100  waiters, and;" served in three underr  ground rooms adjoining the picture  gallery. Four hundred people sat  down to supper at a time. In each  room there were three .main tables,  each 'seating, (twenty people,, with a  number of round tables for eight persons arranged-, round the sides of the  room; The walls of these rooms were  draped, a subdued green being the  predominant color.' Electric light  completed the illusion that the rooms  wereVabove ground.  AFFORESTATION  PRISONERS PLANT FORESTS  ORIENTAL OUCTON IN EUROPE  PARIS (SETS A TASTE ..  pF "CHINESE PERIL"  Invasion of   Orientals   in City ������nd  :  Country is Worrying France.  Paris, France, May 18.���������The press  is complaining of the harm done to,  the city,. its people, its, reputation  and its growth by a new "Chinese  peril." One journal, which notes in  this ^connectipn rtat since J^anuary  there have been in Paris 100 conven-1  tions of "international swindlers, hotel rats and similar vermin," describes the establishment of a factory in  the suburb of Colombes for the production from the Oriental vegetable  "soja" or soy, of such merchandise  as soup, bread, flour, preserves, candies and even intoxicating drinks.  Another journal calls attention to  a Chinese restaurant in the studio  quarter of Montparnasse, where  weird, noxious and ��������� costly dishes are  served to French people, who exchange the old established European  knives and forks for unmanageable  chopsticks.  In the Latin quarter, it appears,  there is a Chinese printing office,  publishing a paper in Chinese characters, with a surprisingly large circulation. In a factory in Normandy  there are fifty Chinese silk workers  who toil for low wages.  One of the most striking sights at  present on the Paris boulevards is  that of Chinese4 children begging before the cafes, selling cheap toys, tossing balls or knives, or, amid floods  of tears, pretending that they are lost.  The authorities recently waged a successful war on the plague of gypsies  in France; now they are asked to take  measures to check the plague of  Chinese beggars.  Australian    Convicts    Reforest .500  Acres  According to a recent report of the  Forestry Department of .New South  Wales, good conduct convicts at the  state prison, instead of breaking stone,  are now engaged in the more" useful  and healthful; work or replanting with  trees the waste lands of the state. At  one prison alone 25,000 trees. >mostly  American ash and pines were planted  in 1913, and so successful have these  plantations been that this work will  be considerably extended in the present year.  A similar idea has been worked out  successfully by the city of San Diego  in California, which possesses 7,000  acres of bare rolling sand land at a  distance of ten miles from the city.  A trained forester was engaged to  make this land^profit-yielding and under his direction the city's unemployed  have been given work planting this  area with trees suitable to the nature  of the country. Other cities in the  United States that have found it  necessary to purchase and reforest  large areas on the watersheds governing their water supply have advantageously used the same kind of labor.  The primary purpose of such reforestation is not, however, to furnish  wq_rk_to iheVunemplqy^  velop a profitable source of revenue  from land which would otherwise remain unproductive..  City forests of this kind are not, as  yet, in vogue in this* country. Perhaps the only city forest in Canada is  that at Guelph, Ont, where a small  area has been planted surrounding  the springs which furnish the city's  water supply. In many of the counties of Eastern Canada, however, are  large areas of waste land, originally  forested, and capable only of producing forests. Ontario has a Counties  Reforestation Act making possible  the acquisition of such waste land for  reforestation purposes by municipal  councils, but up to the present time  only one county has availed itself of  this opportunity. Quebec and the  Dominion government have also  passed legislation to encourage tree  planting, and the Dominion'Forestry  Branch in the last fiscal year distributed nearly 4,000,000 trees from  the nurseries at Indian Head for  wood lot planting in Western Canada.  The growing of forest trees on  waste land can in most cases be made  a profitable undertaking, besides providing labor to a considerable number of men, yet no extensive reforestation has as yet been done in Eastern Canada.

H. H. STEVENS,  ON THE HINDU QUESTION  Eastern Sentiment  "In Eastern Canada there seems to be a feeling that British Golumbia is acting in this connection from'v mean motives. I have run across,  this sentiment frequently but I also found that  When the facts of the case were laid before the  people in the east they soon swung around to our  support. ( Applause.) Any such feeling of lack  of sympathy with our position on this matter in  the East is due to misconception of the facts. Asiatic exclusion is not a party question in the East  any more than it is here, but it is not understood so  well. For that reason the B. C. members have not  yet been able to secure satisfactory legislation  from Parliament.  "It has been frequently pointed out in the  East that it is not fair to exclude friendly peoples  and fellow British subjects in India. I have continually pointed out that it is impossible to deal  with this question, without passing legislation  which might be temporarily offensive to these  peoples. But if it is a choice between giving offence and not I am ready for exclusion. (Cheers.)  A Voice���������Send them back tomorrow.  Mr. Stevens���������I will deal with that presently.  (Laughter.)  Never Asked for Militia  Continuing he pointed out that the telegram  published in the local press from Ottawa and attributed to him was largely incorrect. He never  asked for the government to send militia out  here. That rumor was made out of whole cloth.  He also had never suggested that the Komagata  Maru should be towed out of the harbor. That  was absurd.  He then dealt with the local situation. He  quoted the Qrder-in-Couneil forbidding the entrance of artisans and laborers no matter where  they came from. That order has been enforced.  The Hiifflus tried to test its validity. They were  the only people who claimed the right of entry  in face of that Order-in-Council. While in Ottawa  he had been frequently urged to recommend to  the government that certain exceptions should  be made in the cases of mechanics wanted over  from the States,-but ho exceptions were made.  The order was enforced against all comers.  "I am not satisfied with the mere passing  of that Order-in-Council," he continued. "The  government should pass legislation of a distinct  and definite type excluding Orientals. (Cheers.)  But there are only seven members of Parliament  British Columbia, and about 210 from the rest of  Canada, but of late I have seen a marked change  in sentiment among these members on this question. I feel that next year we will get through  the Commons a measure that will meet the view  of the people of this province.   (Cheers.)  Proposed Exclusion Bill  Mr. Stevens then referred to his own exclusion  bill, which he had. introduced with the idea of letting the people of Canada know that British Columbia stood pat onthe subject. Next session,  he said, we will make a demand for exclusion.  He said he was not married to his bill, and if  anyone could improve the phraseology he would  be glad to receive suggestions. The bill contained the proviso that it would not apply to any  nation whose government had an agreement with  the Canadian Government to restrict its own immigration. It was easy to say,'' Close the Door,"  but ifwas not easy to do, in view of the ignorance  of the subject in Eastern Canada.  "The Komagata Maru came here in direct  contravention of the two orders-in-council relating to direct passage and the entrance of artisans  and laborers. Newcomers are being excluded  every day on these two points. They apply to all  peoples, not to Orientals alone. Ever since the  vessel arrived the government has instructed Superintendent of Immigration Reid to enforce the  J_S&_ H������ hasjdone, so. _These Hindus oil board  have been rejected. Their counsel, Mr. Bird, evidently intends to try to drag their case from court  to court, with the result that the immigration  officers would be compelled to suspend the regulations until the case was finally settled.  "In Clause 23 of the Immigration; Act it was  specifically aimed to prevent the courts from interfering in immigration matters. Unfortunately,  it does not do this.  "I say this with some hesitation, that we have  in British Columbia some judges who are willing  to give judgments contrary to what is the clear  meaning of the act. (Cheers.) We are prepared  to go to court with this case if we could get a fair  court to go to, but there is too much at stake. We  all know the intention of the act is to restrict immigration, but there may be some technical loophole. ���������"���������������������������  Another Ship Coming  "It is said that the same influences which are  behind the Komagata Maru voyage have another'  shipload ready. This proceeding is unfair and  unreasonable. There was not one of these immigrants now in the harbor but knew of the exist-  ence of the orders-in-council. We have no trouble  with European immigrants. We have deported'  several thousand British immigrants in the past  five years because they were declared unfit. Not  one of them made an appeal against the ruling,  although it was a hardship to them.  "Some people say why not send the vessel  back. It is under. Japanese register, and quite  within the law to come here. As long as it complies with the marine laws and harbor regulations,  it cannot be ejected..If these Hindus had come  in a regular steamer we would have sent them  back on the same vessel some time ago. They  know they^ave no right to enter here, but they  hope by specious attack^ on the validity of the  law to get a stay of proceedings of six or nine  months, thus putting Canadians to a great deal of  unnecessary expense. , '  "I have no ill-feeling against them personally, but the national life of Canada will not? permit of any large influx from the Orient. It would  lower the standard of living. It is not a case of  racial pride, but of economic conditions. I intend  to stand on this great principle of a white British  Columbia and a white Canada." (Cheers.)  (Continu*. *n Pat* ���������> ,.V  Friday, June 26,. 1914  THE WESTERN CALL.  . H.H. STEVENS, H. P.  . ON THE HINDU QUESTION  (Continued from Page 4)  Board of Trade Approves  Mr. Jonathan Rogers, president of the Board  of Trade, who was expected to attend and speak  was unable to do so but he wrote that he was ,in  * hearty support of any steps taken to prevent the  landing of Hindus in Canada.  "For the last twenty years in this province,  | the fight has gone for the exclusion of Orientals,"  i declared Aid. Frank Woodside in proposing the  resolution before the meeting.    "Fifteen years  ago Asiatics drove the white men off the Fraser  I and the Skeena rivers and .we have seen the sawmills on the coast and in the interior of the province, the logging and shingle bolt camps pass  (into their possession too, so far as labor is con-  fcerned.   We as Canadians have been backing off  I the map and now we have another crowd of Asiatics determined to land and push us still further  [off.  Is it not up to us to protect our own people?"  I     The inability of the labor market to digest the  [labor at present here was strongly emphasized by  [Aid. Woodside.   At the present time in the em-  lploy of the city six hundred more men were being  fengaged than were needed to take care of the  |work, but it was necessary to relieve the conditions.    There were women and children destitute in the city, and today on the books of the city  lall there were 400 applications from married  len, British citizens, for work needed to support  their families.  , "In these Hindus we have a people," pointed  jut the alderman, "who first eut the wages and  jlrive out the white men and then hoard up their  inoney to expend it in paying for the charter  Inpney of the Komagata Maru, to send to India to  Ijarry on a propaganda there and to hire lawyers  po seek for technicalities in our immigration law."  Canada's Bights Admitted  The indignation which< was expressed by Aid.  ,.7oodside at the action of a lawyer who, knowing  eonditions inthis country, would seek to circumvent the laws was loudly echoed by the audience,  fte did not profess to be an authority on Imperial  eonditions, but he had just recently returned  from the Old Country, and he knew that influential people he met there agreed that it w������is up to  .anada to protect itself against undesirable im-  nigration. He met many people, too, who had  irisited this province and others who had not  visited it who complained of the way in which  jthe labor market was manned by Orientals, and  le knew that there was no desire to send out domestic servants simply because they had to com-  jeite against Orientals. .    ,  It was up to them as Canadians and having  (>efore them the grandes. country in the world to  Absolutely forbid admission to the men now in the  .arbor.  Congratulations were extended by Mr. Ralph  Smith to Mr. Stevens for, having made a speech  ehich was absolutely: free from political partisanship. He had been eleven years in Parliament  fnd he knew the difficulty Mr. Stevens had experienced of impressing Eastern people, without  Western experience of the feelings of the people  Nf the Pacific Coast on this question. 0  ' He knew that the clause Mr. Stevens had  quoted was put in the immigration act with a view  bf meeting an emergency and making the Government supreme over the courts of the country.  That provision and the other to which Mr. Stev-  Ins referred was put there partly by his influence  Ivith the deliberate intention of meeting the occasion when the ruling of the Government should  tand against any judicial consideration.  Tbe Moment 8m Arrived  A burst of cheering was the response to his  juestion of whether that particular occasion had  _otvnow arisen. The second part of the law requiring an immigrant to come direct from the  Jand of his birth had been successful for years  and all good British subjects should be ready-to  sonform with the law that stood upon the statute  jooks.  A species of anarchy was behind this Hindu  Imovement, which would have been immediately  [suppressed if it had been attempted by white  knen. The law of the country was being defied,  land the man who defied it was an anarchist in  [spirit. This meeting could not fail to strengthen  ���������the hands of Mr. Stevens; all were alike when  [they aimed at preserving for the white races of  this community sufficient bread and butter to  live. ' ������������������  As a public man he realized the responsibili-  ;ies of the Imperial Government and the delicacy  ���������f its position in India. But Canada had no re-  ponsibility with regrad to the management of  ���������usiness in India. That was entirely a question  vhich belonged to the Imperial Government. No  leal British subject would go out of his way to  pake complications, but corresponding with the  xclusive right of Great Britain to manage the af-  [airs of India was the exclusive right of Canada to  ass her own laws and to enforce them.  The Mayor called for a show of hands in vot-  _g on the resolution and every hand in the room  Ippeared to fly up in the affirmative. When  he Mayor called for the votes against, the dusky  .ands of the Hindus in the hall shot up, but the  lay or declared the resolution *'unanimously car-  ied by the citizens of Vancouver," with special  >hasis on the word "citizen."  SOUTH VANCOUVER  Affairs in South Vancouver have steadied  down to quiet earnest work, and about 350 men  are now working in the development of needed  permanent work throughout the municipality.  Harmony reigns once more at council meetings,  and it is to be hoped that nothing will occur to  throw this long-suffering community into turmoil  again.  The public park question is coming to the  front once more, and,.perhaps, no better time will  ever occur to acquire the breathing spaces and  beauty spots necessary in every city.  There is a quiet but persistent agitation going  on to secure a park for the Southill district. It is  understood that there is a large tract of land  which can be obtained at a reasonable price sit-  .uated near to the Ferris road, facing the Gulf of  Georgia, and with a view of the North Arm and  the panorama of Lulu Island homes lying.at one's  feet, as it were. No more ideal site can be selected  for a public park.  The East end has a splendid heritage in Central park, and now, with one lying more to the  westward, the people would be fairly well served  for a while.  Whatever choice may be made, however, this  is a question that should be faced at once.

McCALLUM & SONS, Limited  "THE HARDWARE MEN"  I 2415 MAIN STREET PHONE Fairmont 215  Gold has been discovered on the banks of the  Willow river, in Willow River townsite, thirty  miles east of Fort George, according to a private  telegram received here today by Mr. F. H. Heaps,  and there is great excitement in Fort George  over the discovery. Many Fort George residents  are staking claim������, both quartz and placer, according to Mr. Heaps' message.  " Willow River townsite, as its name implies,  is on the banks of Willow river. The townsite  is also on the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, and.  is said to be owned by a syndicate largely controlled by local capitalists. Owing to its proxim-.  ity to Fort George and the existence of a newly  opened railway line the village was soon reached  by scores of gold hunters as soon as news of the  discovery leaked out.  The stream on which the claims are being  staked rises in the Cariboo country not far from  Barkerville, the scene of many rich gold finds of  earlier days. .This fact lends support to the belief that valuable claims will be found at Willow  River townsite, the precious metal having come  down from the Cariboo.  Mr. Heaps said today that although he was  interested there he had not been aware that any  prospecting was being done in the vicinity of the  townsite, and the announcement of the find was  entirely news to him. -.

As stated in an interview with Mr.  }ope, this Association has decided to obtain a report on the Turner design from a bridge engineer  >f unquestionable ability and standing, and sub-  lit such report to the Board of Directors of the  Jridge Company, and with this report from un-  jiased engineers before them, the Board will be  _hle to form a just opinion on the merits or de-  leritg of Mr. Turner's design.  Mr. Cope, in a short interview, stated that the  Manufacturers' Association had never been satisfied with the treatment the local tenderers had  received at the hands of the Engineers". The previous report brought in by these engineers contained incorrect statements, and that read at yesterday's meeting was an unjustified condemnation  of the Turner design. Under these circumstances  the Manufacturers' Association had decided on  their own account to obtain a report on the Turner  design from an engineer of very high standing,  and forward a copy of same to the Burrard Inlet  & Bridge Company.  Mr. Cope refused to further discuss the matter  at this time, as he feels assured that the Directors  can be relied upon to uphold the local industries  and the interests, of the community at large.

On our return to America, my;  friend, in spite of all my urging, refused, with stubborn persistency, It!  seemed to me, to aid ln the prosecution of those who, we knew positively, were implicated in ths affair. Con*  eernlng Murphy, Tup Sing and a!  score or more of their satellites we'  icould have produced evidence of ths;  boat damaging character. But Camer-i  ton was not so minded.

All these things, I say, continued  to pussle and disquiet me, long after  the sharp edges of rancorous remtm-  brance had been worn away. And invariably at such times there would re-;  cur recollections of those early days  Of the threatening letters and of tbat  elusive something in Cameron's manner which I was never quit* able to  comprehend or explain.  The true interpretation was v\  served for the night preceding myi  marriage vrlth Bvelyn, which, by the  way, had. at her guardian's wish, been;  delayed for nearly a yea; because of  what he chose to regard as her un*.  seemly youth. Tbe celebration was tot  take place at Cragholt and the house  was alwsdy/fllled with kinsfolk and  Intimate friends, including most of tho  wedding party.  . It was after midnight, and Cameron  land 1 were alone together in bis ma-  jhogany and green study; he at his  jwriting table and I In the same adja-  loent leather chair in wbich I bad sat  js.twelvemonth ago while listening to  Ihe story of the incised portrait.  V As was not unusual we had reverted  !to that time and to certain of the in*  ;Ctdents therewith connected; and X  had been trying to make clear to Cameron, as I bad already frequently tried  to do, the peculiar difference between  McNish's expression and his.  . "In individual feature," I said, warming to my subject, "there never was  tn all the world before, I believe, such  Similarity.. And in repose, the ensemble, I should say, was equally identical.

I understand what you would say, probably better than I could from your putting it into words. And I want to  tell you why I understand. Indeed  rye wanted to tell you for a long  while, but whenever I've got to the  verge of it, I have balked."    ..  He paused here to shake the ash  from his cigar,' reaching across his  desk for a receptacle, and somehow  the gesture reminded me of chat of  McNish as he had thrown out his arm  which held the letter, and so exposed  the telltale tattooing.  "I have never told you, Clyde," he  resumed, his eyes turned on the glowing tobacco ember which he had Just  bared, "anything about my birth or my  family. But now that you are to become one of us, in a way, it's only  fair that you should know; for though  Evelyn's mother was but my half-sister, still the girl gets the same blood  through her grandsire." ���������-:���������"���������������������������  "Yes," I said, "I know that, Evelyn  told me that much.

As he said this Cameron, who had  been desultorily drawing figures on his  writing pad with the end of a pen*  holder, abruptly shot his gaze to mine  and caught the quick question of my  eyes.  "Yes," he said, without change of  tone, "yes, you see. now, dont your*  "McNish!" I murmured.  "McNish," he echoed*- "Donald Me*  Msh."  "But,** I began, "I don't quite���������" and  I thought of the letter from McNish's  mother.  "Oh, it is clear enough," he went on.  "Some of the children were put out to  live amongst neighbors, and eventually, my father and the rest of us  came to this country. The others he  left behind, promising to send each  month the money for their keep. Don*  aid he left with a couple named McNish, who had no bairns of their own,  and when the boy grew to be a big  lad, and my father, who ln the meantime had been successful here and  married again, sent for him to come  to America, word came back that he  had been dead a twelvemonth."  "And your fatheiNbelleved it?"  "Oh, yes, for they returned the back  pay he had forwarded, and sent a lock  of my brother's hair, I think, and %  ���������trinket or two that had been his as a  ;kiddle."  "Afterwards, though, you leaned  that he was still alive?"  "No," was Cameron's answer. "We  ���������never heard. Had it not been for that  [marked resemblance gathering me in-  tto the net spread for him, I should  [probably never have known. And,  Clyde," he added, "ever since I learned of bis having been there, in town, I  have been wondering. Do you think  :it possible that he ever realised that  he was in his brother's bouse?"  "Hardly," I said.

And it bis mind was  clear enough: to put two and two together, why, knowing that he had a  twin brother in America, it' would  seem���������-" And there I stopped my  floundering, for Cameron had risen to  his feet, and smiling, tolerantly, was  waving a bushing band at me.  - "Yes, yes," he said, "I've argued it  all out In Just the same way, dear  friend. And yet we never can be certain, can we? Only I have thought, if  he might have realised it, and have  been able to have played the part, and  stayed, and taken up-my life and lived  It for ths rtst of his, I might have  gone on and taken his punishment to  some purpose.

The interests centering at Vancouver, District of North Vancouver and District  [of West Vancouver, have all joined in/making  [strong representations that this first Government  [owned elevator on the Pacific should be on Bur-  Frard Inlet.  At the present moment practically Nail the  jrain grown in Canada's three western provinces  .s shipped to the head of lake navigation at Fort  IWilliam and Port Arthur; thence taken by  steamer to tidewater at the Atlantic, and thence  .cross to the markets of England and Europe,  [���������here are at present but three trunk railways,  the C. P. R., Canadian Northern and G. T. P.,  grossing the three provinces, equipped to carry  ���������rain to the head of the lakes.  That the bulk of the wheat is moved quickly  iifter it is threshed in the fall is proved by the  frequent recurrence of a condition of blockade  It receiving points, and all along the line of  route to the big terminal elevators at the head of  Ihe lakes. Each year the condition of blockade  .ecomes more marked. It will become worse as  le production of wheat increases. Obviously, if  Ihe average length of haul could be cut in half,  [he efficiency of the three railways would be  Jbubled, or practically so. Shipping to the Coast  kn equal basis to shipping to Fort William would  Certainly cut the length of haul in half.  There is no reason, and there has never been  iny reason^ why half the grain grown on the  jrairies should not come to Vancouver to tide-  Vater to be exported-   In fact the advantage is  In favqr of this route.   Taking points in Alberta,  tor instance, the distance to Fort William would  Approximate 1,400 miles, while the dif   nee to  ' ancouver would approximate 650, miles.   That  ||s a self-evident advantage in favor of Vancouver.  Ldd to that the long trip down the Great Lakes  to the Atlantic, and every condition favors the  western haul.   Once a cargo is aboard ship on  tidewater it is a small difference in geting it to  larket.  "With the opening of the Panama Canal in  1.915, the distance from Vancouver to Liverpool  jiver present routes will be not much more than  half. All authorities in shipping agree that the  Commerce of the whole world, and of the Pacific  )cean is bound to be tremendously influenced by  khe opening of the Canal. Trade is expected to  kome to Vancouver that has not been possible before. Shipping in this port is bound to become  Mich more extensive and important than ever.  rith- this increase in shipping, will come increased demand for cargo, and the movement of  jrain westward will furnish that cargo. Not only  rill it furnish cargo, but it will stimulate the  ringing of return cargo to this port- The point  irged by some Eastern parties that the Panama  ^anal route would be injurious to grain, because  )f being in the tropics has been proven erroneous. Grain has been carried across the tropics  for generations without damage. ^  With the expansion of general commerce at  lis port due to the opening of the Panama Canal,  .nd from natural growth, there will come increased trade with the prairie provinces in those  If tides which can, with advantage, be imported  lere.   The continued demand for British Columbia lumber on the prairies is also a factor which  l^vill provide return cargoes for grain cars coming  to the Coast.   Indeed, it is strange that Jthe rail-  rays did not long ago foster the western move-  lent of wheat from that consideration alone.  iThe lumbermen have long been told tbat the difficulty in giving them cars to ship their products  [to the prairies arose from the fact that it did not  [pay to bring the cars to the coast empty, just to  fload lumber.   And that there was not westbound  traffic offering.   Hence at times, when lumber  Ltrade to the prairies has been lively, there has  been much bitterness over the car shortage question. The railways would serve their own interests in that regard if they developed the westward movement of grain. The danger from congestion would also be relieved in proportion as  the efficiency of the roads was doubled, cutting  the average haul in half.  Speaking to the press at one time recently, Mr.  C. R.Hosmer, a director of the C. P. R. Company;  and president of the Ogilvie Milling Company,  the largest flouring mill company, and individual  elevator owner in the British Empire, said: "I  believe the opening of the Panama Canal will exercise a profound influence on the traffic movement of the Western portion of the Dominion.  Among other things I expect to see a large volume  of grain and flour seek an outlet via Vancouver  and the trans-Isthmian Canal. I am referring  now to the Alberta crop, and possibly a portion of  the products of Western Saskatchewan. Our  company (Ogilvie's) is keeping in touch with the  situation on this .coast, and as soon as conditions  justify will erect a grain elevator and probably a  flour mill of large capacity in Vancouver."  That the bringing of large quantities of wheat  to Vancouver direct from the prairies would result in establishing, a large milling industry both  for home consumption and ������for export trade, is  assured- The consideration referred to above,  that there is always a rush'to get the grain away  promptly from the point of production precludes  the holding of large quantities there for grinding.  More than that it is a recognized condition with  all standard flour millers, that to keep up uniformity the grain must be aged before milling.1  That can only be done in the large terminal elevators, for the elevator capacity in the grain-pro-  -ducing provinces is limited and always taxed to  handle the grain in transit.  The establishment of a large flour milling  centre here would have more than one benefit.  The production of flour for export would leave a  large quantity of the by-products���������bran and  shorts, to be disposed of. British Columbia is an  ideal dairying country, and can produce all green  fodder in enormous quantities, but will never be  a grain country so that the grain ration for a  dairy herd must be always bought; The offal  from flour mills would thus find a ready market,  and the existence of large supplies wxmld stimulate the dairying industry.  Briefly to capitulate: There is assurance that  the Government and the railways are both alive  to the coming movement of wheat westward; the  moving of half the'crop to the Pacific coast would  virtually double the efficiency of the three trunk  lines, and cut the average haul in half. It woulcjV  also reduce the average cost of haul in similar  manner; the nature of the grain producing business and the conditions surrounding the harvesting and threshing force hurried shipment to tidewater, or at least to the head of navigation; Vancouver is in position to compete with Fort William and Port Arthur for half the trade, thus virtually creating a height of land half way between  the two points, which would mark the movement  east and west; the fact that Fort William is two  thousand miles from the seaboard, gives the route  by way of Vancouver a distinct advantage; the  completion of the Panama Canal is going to cut  the length of the voyage from Vancouver to.Liver-  pool in half; there is every likelihood that large  grain traffic to Vancouver would result in building large flouring mills here, for local and export  trade; the dairying industry of B .C. would be  benefited by the production of large quantities of  mill-feed locally; finally, there never has been  any good reason why one-half of the western  grain should"not have ^bme west^nunlessir be  that the railways like to have the longest haul  possible, regardless of the cost to the consumer,  or as in this instance, to the producer, seeing that  his price is fixed by an outside market.  Vancouver, a grain market for the Pacific, is  the word; then will be realized one of the prophetic terms applied to this port���������"Liverpool of  the Pacific"  ST. SAVIOUR'S CHURCH.  (Anglican.)
