TO THt DUKE OF CONNAUGHT  A Welcome to the Duke of Connaught.  As Britons should we boast with pride,  "An Empire vaster than has been.*'  We-glory in her mighty fleet,  Her trade, her laws, her Kiug and Queen.  As citizens of Canada  We pride in our Dominion.  Vast in extent, rich in resource.  Best Jand, in our opinion.  This province by Pacific's strand  Is to us fairest of the Nine,  With forests of the Douglas fir,  .And wealth iu sea. and mine.  So in fitly leagues of hills and plain  Between old Ottawa and here.  That he who represents the King  Is in our midst scarce once a year.  Our hopes will soon be realized,  ���������   For, e'er the leaves begin to fall,  While  yet  the  days  are summer bright,  The Duke will make a formal call.  Our people, though in numbers few  From towns and ranches far and near,  Will show that they are Britons true  By hearty weleome, honest  cheer.  We'd welcome him as governor  Though he were not a royal peer.  We'd welcome him as British prince  Though he were not the viceroy here.   .  Ant' we would gladly welcome give  To liim for this,���������and this alone,���������  That he to stay a British peer  Renounced a continental throne.  Prince of Great Britain's. Royal House,���������  Sire of Kings that are yet to be.���������  Canadian Viceroy,���������Connaught's Duke,���������  Vancouver gladly welcomes thee.  August 25, 1912. ���������WILL FARADAY.  and in the spirit of vengeance, a vengeance begotten of failure in the disgraceful ''pact" he did  his best to force on Canada, he aigns an act that  disgraces himself and his country. He breaks a  solemn treaty, and ia so shameless that he is not  willing to go before an international tribunal to  make honest discovery of the open, manly, and  honourable solution therein to be found. ,  Taft, as compared with Roosevelt, is a mountebank and an official debaser of a mighty nation.  But his vengeance, his dishonesty and his' petty  peevishness will not avail. He is on his road to.  defeat and oblivion, in spite of the thieves and  treaty-breakers who control him.  .. .���������������"*..  ^���������5*  il,  ���������-������������������'If..!  yym  ''**���������'.���������'&  yyyywk  ;yy&..������M*  .������������������������$$!**  ; -^yMi$$  "���������*-.'.* -TL-: -^l^i^"***>;  THEI#������^RANGE  OO RANKS FIRST OO  IN THL HEART OF THE HOME  W.

London, Sept. 4���������As an outcome of  the titanic Inquiry, the Board of Trade  has Issued Ita revised rules for increasing the safety of lives at sea.  The rules become effectiv������ on January 1, 1913.  They provide tbat oceangoing passenger ships and emigrant steamships  and foreign sailing ships carrying  passengers shall be required to furnish  lifeboat accommodation for all on  board. The lifeboat equipment which  has been included in the regulations  must be in the boats as soon as the  ship leaves the harbor and remain  there throughout the voyage.  The number of persons to be carried  tn each boat must be-marked on it.   -  31r. Sidney Buxton of the Board of  Trade, in issuing the new rules, makes  tbe statement that it may be necessary  to obtain "further legislative power ln  order to make adequate boat drill compulsory and secure crews to man the  boats properly.'  The rule abrogates that which now  permits vessels with    bulkheads    to  carry a lesser number of boats.  Find Remarkable Phenomena.

That the right to form unions  and to hold meetings of the same ia  one that should be freely enjoyed by  every workman, and we hold that the  company should in/ this case extend, to  the union the privilege of holding  meetings in their bunkhouses or in  some other suitable meeting place on  the company's property, and should allow . the union officials to ��������� visit the  men there for the purpose of collecting dues and transacting the business  of the union.  ...  * 2. That the medical practitioner referred to as discharged, was employed by the company, but his salary was  paid, in part at least, by a fee of $1.00  per month collected from the employees of the company.  The company has dropped the medical fee of $1.00 per month, but coincident with dropping that fee they'  charged the men, a new fee of $1.00,  per month for electric lights in their  bunkhouses..;^  The company now engage and pay  the medical practitioners.  The union claims that the men are  now paying aa much as they di< before and are not entitled to the services bj the medical practitioner after  they leave the employ of the company, in spite of the fact that the substituted light-fee is paid up to the  en<i of the month in which they leave  the service of the company.

This would undoubtedly be, as.MT.pwen suggests, on the site  of the old fire hall at the rear of the t^e block on Broadway, near  JVlain Street. Here cars from every, direction would be available.  The city could well afford to give the lot upon which the old hall  is now located. The library authorities should be easily impressed  with the urgent Heed of a branch in this large and thickly populated  area.

We can't proceed, helterskelter,  slipshod, taking long chancea, and  start for Mexico this afternoon. No  chance to migrate till we have the  word."  "Quite correct. Still, I think the  next cipher message won't be long  delayed. It will be in our hands with*  In a very few hours. While waiting,  wa can see the town, and incidentally  keep a sharp watch for our Filipino  Mend." \i:y  The boys ware more worried than  either of them would admit. Neither  bad counted the vicious little Filipino,  Agullar, as an active factor in the situation. They were fairly well prepared to deal w|th the wily Japanese  emissary, Yazimoto, or with the burly,  hot-tempered German, Baron Zollern,  but neither had for ��������� minute made  any calculation involving the brown  fellow from Luzon. The affair In the  sleeper, when the dummy- arranged  by Brockett had been stabbed wltb  Agullar's keen-bladed knife, was Ilka  a bombshell to tbem, and their worries were Intensified by the fact tbat  no trace of the would-be murderer  could be found. Nobody even resembling the Uttle Filipino-had left  the train In the morning���������the boys  had scrutinized every outgoing passenger���������and the porter and conductor asserted that no one even of a brown  Complexion bad been aboard that  train as far as they were aware. "Fore  Gawd, geramen," protested - the porter, "If any dahk-brown pusson had  got into dis heah cab, Ah'd have sized  him up fo' notheh niggafc, an* Ah'd  suttln suab remembeh any niggah dat  had de nehve to-ride in a Pullman."  Was Agullar in the employ of Yazimoto, with whom he had been closely  connected back In Washington? Was  be now an emissary of Baron Zollern?  MiP aWGT/TTV 4SMV.  Or was be pursuing a policy of private, personal revenge, of vengeance  for tbe thrashing the boys bad given  him only a few days before?  Solano, whose Spanish relatives bad  cuses for letting his temper take him  outside the path of his duty ?"_  "Good logic." dissented Solano, "but  It doesn't .fit in with what 1 have  heard of Filipinos in general, and  Tagalogs ln particular. Anyhow, wei  will have to add Mr. Agullar to ouri  list of special dangers, and watch out/  for blm a little more carefully than?  tor either of the others. One thing'  sure���������he'll take you for a ghost If we  meet him-any where, and we ought to  gather him in without much trouble  before be can recover from the shock."  Throughout the day that followed  the youngsters kept sharp lookout for  trouble, but ;were agreeably disappointed. No burly and boisterous Ger.  jmans swooped, upon them; no Filipino daggers glittered in the surging  crowds, and none of the numerous little Japanese gentlemen whom they'  encountered during the day resembled  Mr. Yazimoto except In size and color. They went ecstatic during tbe.  afternoon over .Comiskey's new bail  park, a veritable paradise of the fans,  and even enjoyed the treat of a short  conversation with the Old Roman him-'  self as be held court among the faith*'  fut "bugs." Not till lata in the eve-?  ning did the sights and sounds of the:  city pall upon tbem, and they began  to dimly remember that they, had en-  Joyed but little sleep on the previous-;  night In the Pullman.  No message had been handed tbem  all day, and tbey had received no!  algn of any character, although ears*  and eyes bad been alert In eager ex-'  peetatlon of a slip of paper quickly)  passed amid the hurrying crowds. It,  ^seemed evident, therefore, that tbey!  would have tb wait over for at least!  another day. and rest bad grown In*)  slstently Imperative. Tbey selected a!  downtown hotel, not one of tbe largest;  caravansaries, but a small, quiet-look:  Ing place, engaged a ropm and went)  to bed without delay. Recent expert*:  ences, however, bad taught tbem ai  little caution. Reconnoiterlng all an-'  gles and appurtenances of their room,,  tbey soon convinced themselves that]  tbere was no chance for an Intruder!  to enter by way of a window. They*  were on the fourth floor, and tbe only,  windows ln the room looked down up-i  told bim much ot the Philippines and ) on a sheer drop, to tbe street below.,  the brown, treacherous Tagalogs, was ' j*0t even a fire-escape was within  positive that Agullar was following his j close reach; a glass door, twenty feet'  own road, fighting for bis own hand, j farther down the ball, bore the red-,  and trying only > to get even for the lettered inscriptions which told of  beating he bad sustained. "A Tagal,"  argued Ramon, "would forget his employer, bis position, everything else  on earth, to follow an enemy to the  bitter end. That Uttle devil, from the  moment we laid hands on bim, forgot  exit to safety ln case of a sudden  blaze. The door of tbe room was'  locked and a chair braced against it,,  with its top under the knob, where it:  would rattle if anyone became too:  busy on the farther side, and the tran  Y.���������.oto* Zoi.le.rn. an* bis own peo-jsom was tightly secured.   These sim-i  pie's cause.   All he thought of, from  that time to this, was getting even  pie    precautions    taken,    the    boys]  climbed Into bed; need of sleep sooni  He may have been trailing us right \ impressed itself upon them, and with-:  along, on hla own hook.  He may have ������in half an hour both* were dead to the.  crossed our trail last night by sheer  chance, and at once tried to take advantage of the opportunity. He may  possibly bave been with either Zollern or Yaflmoto, allowing them to  ,pay bis way around the country, but  ;he wasn't thinking for a single minute  of their Interests���������all that he hoped  and dreamed about was his personal  revenge."  "I figure it just a little different 17,"  answered Brockett. "I think that he  has remained in the employ of one of  the two spies���������more likely Yazimoto,  as two Asiatics would more probaMy  stick together than one Asiatic and a  German. Yazimoto, as I see it, followed us on behalf of the Jap, but  when he actually got in the same car  with us his vengeful spirit was too  much for hirn, and he stabbed me���������  as he believed���������before he could hold  back his hand. On calmer afterthought, he must have been utterly  embarrassed and unnerved at his deed,  and at the light in which he would  now appear to Yazimoto. How can be  ever make good to tbe Jap? How can  he explain hia failure to steal tbe  .documents he_waa after, and make ex-  world'and all Its doings. *-  ���������   ���������   ���������  Daylight was just stealing into the,  room when Brockett woke, yawned,)  turned over and stared half-drowsilyj  at the door. The door was still,shut;!  the chair was still against the knob,!  and Brockett, smiling sleepily, wasj  closing his eyes once more when net  saw his coat, which bad been draped!  around the back of another chair,1  seemingly taking wings and gaining!  animation. The coat rose, disengaged.  Itself from the chair, and floated light-:  ly through the air, navigating the upper, strata of the atmosphere like a i  perfected biplane. It halted suddenly!  at the level of the transom, and the]  bewildered Brockett saw a lean brown i  hand clutching the garment, while an-,  other lean brown hand vanished into:  the inner recesses of the pockets. And  then Brockett, with one wild yell,:  flung himself out of bed, charged;  across the room, and tore madly at;  the chair he bad himself placed  against the knob as additional protection. His coat fell squarely on his'  bead as he clawed at the chair, blinding blm for a moment; the chslr was/  clums-f and kacd? to> handle;, the- lock  stuck; gripped; the key Ilka a> tbtofr  .of malice ami hostile wishes, aad  (when Brockett, did only ft* the- eaaet������  -garb of slumber,- finally burst Into; ta*  ;ball,. wltb Solano, at bis heels,, net a  jsoul: was vtsiMev i Retreating hurriedly  to the ream,.

As they rushed  frantically forward, tbey smashed  ;beavUy into a large, middle-aged gen?,  'tleman who was Just turning tn from  ;a cross-hall.- Tbe large, middle-aged  man, with surprising quickness and  dexterity, harpooned each of them  with a huge and mighty hand, and,  amtllng .amiably, held them unwilling  prisoners.  "Yy in sooch a hurry. *nein young  frents?" laughingly spoke tbe Baron  Zollern.

rode past at Just as furious a pace,
and the worthy old wife cried, "Ah,
there he goes! The Lord ble$ blm,
puir man! His heart's in his work,
an' he's eager to be at it!"
