No city on this coast affords better opportunity  for its Board of Trade to distinguish iteelf than  does Vancouver at the present time, ^e dj**nin&  of the Panama Canal in 1915 will be attended with  gigantic changes in the world's transportation  vitallyaffecting the great commercial centres, particularly on the Pacific���������the new highway of exchange. These West Coast cities will vie with  each other for the lion's share. Vancouver has  many natural advantages in the competition and  will make good if its leaders "seize fortune by  the forelock."  That the Board of Trade is alive is demonstrated by several recent actions.  Their delegates  - to the Panama Canal convention in Calgary gave  a good account of themselves.   E. H. Heaps, be-  cause of his ability, lumbering interests and knowledge of business affairs, waa elected chajnnan of  the convention, which position gave him mdeh influence.   Prof. ]&. Odium, widely travelled and  versatile., in knowledge present and past, wfia  heard with marked respect.   W. A. Blair, secretary of the Board of Trade, spoke with effectiveness, but more fully distinguished himself as  member of the comnnttee on resolutions.  Tha Board of Trade Tuesday night of thia week  endorsed %the action of the Calgary conventicm  and formulated resolutions inviting the next een-  [ ventiea to ICaneouver.

MY PEAR COMBADES,-If the unexpected  blow regarding the loss of my eyesight hss not  actually fallen, as the newspapers have stated,  it is hovering dangerously near. Instead of the  restoration of sight for which I had hoped, and  for which J know you have so earnestly prayed,  the Doctors tell me J am on the very eve of entire  darkness. ^ _ -.:  In a few brief hours my comrades may be under  the painful compulsion of announcing thst the  General is hopelessly blind. In that event, what  an indescribably painful loss will be mine, never  again to see the light of day, or behold the coun-  ��������� tenances of my friends, or look into the sympathetic eyes of my comrades; never.again to witness  that which for over sixty years has been to me  the sight or sights���������men and women kneeling at  the Mercy-Seat.  Then, too, I have lost the hope of being able  . with any facility to write, while it will be an  absolute impossibility to read well.  Pile up all my losses, they are many and serfous  I admit; but look at the mercies left me!  First, there is my confidence in God. I am not  goingTo allow the existence of a few things which  are in conflict with my judgment to interfere  with my confidence in His wisdom���������confidence  that is inspired by a lifelong knowledge of His  ,'  loving care.  Then, I have not lost the assurance of my own  happy relations with my Heavenly Father. I have  not lost the confidence and love of my own dear  people. I have not lost the inestimable blessing  of life. r  I want the continued loyalty of my own people,  and the heartier co-operation of all men and  , women whose hearts are fired with the same purpose as my own.  In a few weeks' time I hope to be found once  more on the battlefield.  Anyway, my dear comrades, in the light or in  the dark, you may count upon your General to  trust in God and go forward!

This means that the final decision of the case will be given much  sooner than was expected, and the last  doubt ss to the legal effect to the Ne  Temere decree will probably be removed by August.

And further, I shall accept this W  be bis intent* m% in so doing I am forced to say1.  that he is ahead of bis church and the doetrinoa  of that church.. He is an enlightened and patriotie  Englishman, and therefore is ready to set abovt-  tbe authority of his church.  And I hesitate 1999$;  to any there are hosts of Roman Catholics who:  wonld respond to the empire's call even if tm*w;y  Vatican ordprs were given to do otherwise. \  In it previous letter to the ''Call'' J made.'��������� Ifti  very clear that the Roman Catholic Chu**ch elaim*/  absolute sovereignty for tbe Pope over all:: wj rv  monarchs, kings, emperors, presidents j|hd otho|PI=  rules on this round earth* ^ ?-;y  Perhaps my letter on Father Vaughsn bad!  something to do with his so strongly nurked';:  patriotic address. ' |  llere are three possible meanings tbat mighlr  be read into that address:   Perhaps he meant in;  his advice to Canadians that they should be loyal  to Canada.   This would be in harmony with the  true and strong patriotism so characteristic of,  our French fellow citizens.   We all are aware of  the difference between the devotion to Canada and  that to Great Britain on the part of FrenchV  Canadians.   Hence I could understand the loyalty!  address to be limited to "our country," vis.,:  Canada.   If this be the scope and intent of that;  address, then Father- Vaughan would be logical,  and easily understood.   And he would not be outside the authority of the Vatican.  Again:   Perhaps he meant to include Britain  in the words "Our Country" in the sense in which  all countries are grouped in relation to the Vatican.   The Pope looks upon all countries as hla  children.   And in this sense he could advise thOr  citizens of any given country to be loyal to themselves as being the children of the Holy See. But  only so long as they remain obedient children,  from   a   national viewpoint.    Hence the  plain-  meaning would be: Be loyal to Britain so long as  Britain is adjudged loyal to her Holy Sovereign  the'Pope. If this be the'intenfbf Father Vaughanr -  then he is logical and safe within the scope of the  claims of the Roman Catholic Church.  Lastly, the reverend  father may mean just  what he says.   If so, then he is a truly loyal man-  in spite of the fact that his church, the College -  of Cardinals and the Pope all claim that Britain,  in common with all other lands, is under the sovereign rule of the Pontiff.   And in this case they  lecturer is larger than his creed, as many of Our'  Roman Catholic friends are.   In such a case we:  must honor his head and heart, even though he^  holds an untenable position in the eyes of bia  church and in the opinions of all historians and  logicians who know the facts.  .But in any case he spoke out in plain, ringing  words, and I for one prefer to take his words as  they read, and say he has a truly loyal heart to  his Empire first, and to the foreign claimant, the  Pope, second.  ~��������� "   -    E.

A Chinese rushed at the governor near the post office and fired a  revolver, but the bullet merely struck  the chair in which the governor was  seated, without doing harm. Tbe attack caused intense excitement  Immediately the attack was made  the soldiers closed around the governor's chair. The Chinese, still gripping  the revolver, was seized.  It is said that a European was seen  to give to the Chinese a signal Just  prior to his attempt against the gov-  ernor. It Is learned that the Chinese,  who is not known in the colony, feared that the coming of the governor  meant the extension of British territory and the seizure of Kwang Tung.  Sir Francis Henry May was appointed governor of Hongkong February 16 last, to succeed General Sir  Frederick J. D. Louard.  London, July 4.���������A wlerd story of  two aged sisters who wished ao* to  bis parted In death, comes today fsom  Gateshold. where an old lady was  found lyingTat the point of death beside the corpse of ber long-dead sister.  Tbe sisters were named Nelll. Both  were over 75 and were retired dressmakers. At one time they conducted  a flourishing business and employed  many assistants. As they became old,  their compensation dwindled and they  went to live In a small house.  One of their few relatives, who had  not heard from them in a long time,  called yesterday to see the sisters and  failed to get a reply to a knock. The  door was broken down and tbe younger sister was found ln a state of collapse, unable to speak, beside the  mummified corpse of the elder woman. She was attired only In a nightdress. A doctor declared the elder  woman had been dead at least a year.

No one/knows just when this fissure began, or what caused it. Some  time ago Jordan had'Professor A.. E.  Outerbrldge the Franklin Institute  metallurgist, inspect the bell, and the  expert said at that time that cracks  of this sort would so extend that in  time they might seriously affect the  metal. Sometimes when a fissure occurs it is necessary to bore a hole fn  the metal, and that will end the defect  The Liberty Bell has already been recast, and it Is said by experts that  the original defects of the makers  were never entirely overcome.  An effort will be made to have the  bell subjected to some additional tests  and if it is possible find some way in  which the relic may be preserved so  that, it:may lasct indefinitely.  4*  That lay Eggs and pro- j  duce Chickens.

FOR FRUIT GROWERS  As a result of aa enquiry conducted  by the British Columbia Fruit Growers' Association throughout the various fruit districts of the Province,  asking what labor would be required  for the current year, it is of interest  to note that the fruit districts are  much more thoroughly supplied with  labor than was the case two years ago,  when tbe last general Inquiry was instituted. At, that time fruit growers  made application for 1460 men; as a  result of the present Inquiry they have  asked for only 300.  Wages in the fruit districts have  advanced slightly in two years and the  conditions of the working man. have  also improved in that fruit growers  are more generally supplying comfortable lodgings and suitable board.  From the inquiey it was learned that  on Vancouver Island andJn/the Lower  Mainland suitable help can be secured  with Uttle difficulty without any special effort oa the part of organizations  for the purpose. It is true, however,  tbat in these districts the Chinese and  Japanese to some extent receive preference over white men.  The Okanagan, which will.have the  largest crop of fruit in Its history this  year, has made the most inuiries for  labor and It Is evident that there will  be suitable employment for men adapted to the work of harvesting and  handling fruit.

Getting at the Pacts  Calgary, Alta.*-Tbe Panama Canal  conference, tbe centre of Interest at  Calgary tbls week, Is leading to tbe  tabulation of much impuortant Information bearing "upon tbe present opportunity of tbe West, and especially  tor Alberta. Tbe Canal will mean to  tbls Province In freight rates for grain  at least nine cents per bushel, to say  nothing of an all-year-round seaport.  In tbe meanwhile it will be open to  the wheat growers of Central and  Eastern Saskatchewan to ship their  product east or west as tbey prefer.  With reference to the present situation  a well known real estate man says:  "As might be expected in view of the  approaching, completion of a great  achievement, the wall of the pessimist  is heard in the land, mingled with the  voices of those who know the facts  and wbo accordingly are inclined to  take a somewhat hopeful view of the  situation. Such views I am content  to pass along for what they are worth.  Among those familiar with the facts  as to tbe resources and transportation  requirements of the Canadian West,  tbls haifbrewed rhetoric an* prattle,  as to impending disasters from Improved transportation facilities will be  taken at its face value. The conclusions of the Calgary conference will  can therefore be administered only to  healthy animals. It can be produced  at an expense of about 75 cents per  animal treated.  "In the United StareB as a whole a  little more than half of the acreage  devoted to cereals Is in corn, a Utile  less than one-fourth in wheat, and  slightly less than one-sixth in oats,"  says the census bulletin on the relative Importance of the different general farm crops as shown by the returns of 1909.  THE  SHEEP  INDUSTRY.  bined wisdom and judgment of the  conferees will bring out a number of  Important aspects of the Panama situation that up to this moment we have  been overlooking altogether."  Twenty years ago the United States  raised just the same amount of wheat  as in 1911, though our population has  increased one-third.  A discovery-which promises to free  the American cattle raising industry  of the dreaded foot and mouth disease is reported from Berlin by Prof.  Wilhelm Grugel, dean of the hygienic  institute of the University of Rostock.  Prof. Grugel announces that "he has  not only found the bacillus which  causes foot and mouth disease, but has  also found a sebum for immunizing  cattle against the malady. The serum  is not curative/but preventive and  A New Appointment in the Live Stock  Branch.  Two years ago the prospect of any  extension of sheep raising In Canada  appeared very remote. Except in the  case of breeders of pure bred flocks,  the prevailing attitude regarding the  possibilities to be attained through a  development of the industry was  largely one of Indifference and unconcern. Today, however," a; very  great change In point of view is manifested, particularly on the part of farmers Interested only in the breeding  and rearing of market sheep. This  change has doubtless been brought  about on the one hand by the Increasing domestic consumption of mutton  and lamb. On the other hand, how  ever, it has with equal certainty been  hastened and confirmed as a result of  the investigations of the Sheep Com  mission of the problems confronting  the sheep tenner In this country and  of the manner in which a decadent but  Government was further strengthened  by the suggestive lectures delivered  by Mr. Rltch during the early months  of the present year at meetings at  tended by him In the Maritime provinces and later at meetings attended  by Messrs. Rltch and MacRae In the  provinces of Saskatchewan, Alberta  and British Columbia. "The Government Is doing something," was tbe  appreciative comment of a Western  sheep man, after the conclusion of  one of tbe recent lectures, and this  statement is expressive of the temper of sheep growers, both In the  Bast and ln the West, who are gratified to know that; In tbeir interests  something definite *ts now being un*  dertaken.  An announcement bis already been  made regsrding the ^action of the  Minister in making provision for a  special sale, daring tbe months of  September and October next, of pure  bred rams and grade, ewes In tbo  Maritime provinces and In British Columbia. It has been ascertained that  these provinces have need, not only  of selected sires, but also of female  Steele to serve as the foundation of  grade flocks for the production of  msrksble lambs. The co-operation of  the Dominion 8beep Bteeders' Association baa been secured to sealst In  this work and a grant of f 15,000 has  been made direct to the association,  to be expended for this purpose, In  accordance wltb certain conditions  Imposed by tbe Minister. The responsibility for tbe expenditure- of this  grant haa been delegated to a special  committee of the association, In conjunction with tbe secretary, Mr. A. P.  Westervelt, and tbe members of this  committee, acting la association wltb  officers of the Live Stock Branch, are  at present engaged in selecting the  most suitable centres for tbe holding  of the proposed sales. Tbey are also  personally Interviewing tbe farmers  ot these districts, with tbe view of  securing thier interest and co-operation in connection- with the sale of  sheep. Subsequent to tbe distribution of selected breeding stock In different localities, it is proposed that  the appointment of one or more experienced sheep men shall be arranged for who shalt spend their time  In visiting the farms of those to whom  the sheep are sold, In order that tbe  latter may have the benefit of competent advice regarding the management of their flocks, the care of wool,  marketing of the clip and disposal of  their lamb crop. As the result of this  policy, it is believed that these centres  will ultimately become distributing  points for high-class breeding stock  and influential agencies in bringing  about an extension of sheep keeping  In,the different provinces.  In consequence of the work initiated  by tbe members of the Sheep Commission,: the Minister Is now In re-  be worth attending to; and the com-' celpt, from time to time, of requests  Guelnbi Collegiate Institute and is a  grates** of the Ontario Agricultural  Collage- His early training has made  him familiar with every phase of the  breeding and management of sheep,  and��������� since his appointment to the position of Professor of Animal Husbandry in the New Hampshire Col*  lege, he has devoted himself especially to experimental work in feeding  and breeding and has made a study,  under ve^y advantageous conditions,,  ef problems relating to tiie production and marketing of wool. - He haa  organized, amongst the farmers ojf  New Hampshire, a co-operatlvw  scheme lor the sale of their wool  clip, and. In addition, has undertaken  considerable extension work which  has given him very valuable experience. He is now recognized in Canada and- in the United 8tates as a  specialist in sheep husbandry and has  won for his work the attention of  some of the most eminent experts in  breeding and experimentation.   ,  Mr. Arkeil is to join tiie staff of  the Live Stock Branch before the  middle of the current month and will  proceed Immediately to tiie provinces  of askatchewan and Alberta to advise with the woll growers regarding  the handling of their present season's  clip and to make preliminary arrangements tor the undertaking of an  extensive experimental shipment of  Canadian woll to^ Oreat Britain ln  1913. A systematic collection of wool  samples will also be commenced Immediately to provide for illustration,  exhibits of wool, requests for which  hare already been received from several of our Agricultural Collegea aad  Winter Fair Boards.

The  final disbanding of the commission  has made it necessary that definite  provision be made for the effective  administration of the policy to which  the Department is now committed to  further the development of the keeping of sheep in Canada. The Minister has, therefore, considered it advisable to arrange for the appointment of a sheep expert to assume  charge, under the Live. Stock Commissioner, of the work to be undertaken in furtherance of this policy.  He has been fortunate in securing  for this position Mr. T. R.

Tbe city of North Vancouver will  be given $93,650 in exchange for lots  48, 49 and 50, of block 155, subdivision  274, New Westminster district; which,  is now known as the city hall property.

CAUGHT RABIES FROM CAT  BITTEN BY DOG.  Toronto, July 3.���������Three children of  William Flanagan, of King, were  brought to the Sick Children's Hospital yesterday and it is feared that all  may be suffering from rabies. No  signs of tbat disease have yet developed, but the Provincial Board of  Health deemed it advisable that the  children should be brought to Toronto  in view of the facts of the case as reported by the doctor in attendance.  Some time ago a cat and dog belonging to Mr. Flanagan had a fight. Shortly afterwards the dog went mad and  was killed. In a short time the cat  began to show symptoms of rabies.  Finally the children complained that  they had been bitten by the cat and  this drew the attention of the family  to the condition of the animal, with  the result that the doctor was called.

Tht effect of*  tills high temperature was noticed on  the 19th and 20th. Practically one-  third of the pens atopped laying, thua  showing that neat waves will effect  the egg-production adversely. This  condition also happened earlier on In  the competition, Blaatiog waa carried on a8 usual. yj  The pens deserving mention tbls  month for editable performance are  Pen 19 (103 eggs). 2 (101). 18 (98),  20 (93), 1 (92), 15 (83), 14 (81), i������  (80).  Following pens in Light Weights  produced broodies during the month:  Pens 1, 8 and 23 (2 birds each), 7,10,  17, 19, 20 and 22 (1 bird e**ch).  The average weight of dosen egga  produced by-pens in Class I. show that  whilst some pens have Increased, oth  ers bave decreased- The pens producing the heaviest eggs at present are  5 and 14 (26 ozs. to dosen), 17 (25*4),  9 and 21 (25% oss. each), 18, 19, 10,  11, 4 (24% ozs), 3, 8 (24*4), 23 (24  ozs.). At tiie periodical weighing of a  crate of 12 dozen eggs, the scales  turned at 18 lbs., averaging exactly 2  ozs. per egg.  Feather-eating Is still causing trouble, although It Is worthy of remark  to notice,, that It does not appear to  affect the egg-production of some of  the pens addicted to this habit.  In Class II., Pens 30 and 33 have  parted company, the Wyandottes forging ahead by a few eggs.  The star performers during the  mOnth have been Pens 38 (92 eggs),  26 <86 eggs); 33 and 35 (84 eggi  each).  The hot weather had its effect on  the heavy-weights, and the following  are list.of broodies: Pen $6 (8 birds),  39 (5), 25, 27, and 29 (4 each), 31, 34  and 37 (3 each), and 30, 32, 33 and 35  (2 each).  The following pens produced the  heaviest dozens of eggs: 36 (27 ozs.),  33   (26 ozs.), 39  (25% ozs.), 30  (25),  4 and 28 (24%), 26 (24%>, 32 (24  ozs.). Pen 40 produced the Ughtetst  eggs, in the competition, 19% ozs. to  the dozen.  As usually occurs with eggs of the  general purpose breeds, as the season'  advances, they have gradually lost  tbeir brownish color, and the eggs are  now mostly of a light tint. Pen 31,  32 and 33 areNtill laying eggs of a  deeper color than their competitors.  This seems to be one of tbe traits of  the Rhode Island Reds.  W. H. STROYAN,  Superintendent.  J. R.

If you want to make it comfortable  and artistic and save the present mess that plaster  makes, and tbe future risk of discomfort when it  cracks and falls in flakes on your nice new dining,  room carpet, use wallboard.  There are now several kinds of wall_ board,  some good, that we are proud to recommend and  sell, and others that are neither good for the reputation of the vendor nor satisfaction to the purchaser.  We know what Wall Board is; for it was first introduced by us. We recommend "Utility" Board as  proof against moisture, therefore safe to cover with  wall paper, kalsomine, or wall paint, if its natural  color, (a light brown) is not considered good enough.  ..- We "have also a fine wood fibre board with pebbled surface, stronger and,-firmer than any other  borrd on the market, called "Wanda" Board, and  lastly we have the wonderful indestructible Asbestos  Board, proof against the fiercest fire, a material  strong enough for the outside walls of a house and  indispensible for building or lining Oarages, Furnace basements, Partitions, Light Walls, or whatever  protection against the risk of fire is necessary.  The prices are, repectively: ���������- .  "Utility" Board, 4 cts.  "Wanda"    "      3cts.  Caiman's Asbestos 7 cts.  per foot, and all are sold in crates, which is the only  more of packing that stands rail, wagon or boat  transport.
