':-A>^'r^s '--S^S^S?  NOTES FROM OTTAWA  (By Our Own^Correspondent, Arthur R. Ford.)  The naval bill has passed another stage and is  n6w in the committee of the house, where it promisee to' be harassed for several weeks. Then when  it gets out ol committee /there is the gauntlet of  the third reading and after that the senate will  take a whirt at the measure. However, the upper  chamber, it ia not expected, will throw out the  bill.   \������ it passes the house the Liberal majority  in the senate will not feel inclined to take chances  of raising a storm.   The senators are not looking  for trouble.   They know that too mueh trouble  might mean their abolition.   Just what the Liberals intend to do is still more or less of a mystery.  They talk   fight.   This   was the announcement  which" was made at the close of the Liberal caucus.  , But there are no signs of more than ordinary obstruction, such as the Conservatives during their  lean years of opposition adopted on. innumerable  occasions.   However, if the Liberals do seriously  start a blockade of all business there promises to  be a spectacular fight.   The government is determined to force the bill through the house.   It believes the people are behind its proposals and it  -doesn't intend to be bull-dozed by a defeated  minority.   Premier Borden politely bnt firmly intimated to the opposition in closing the naval  ���������debate on the second reading that if the Liberals  did try to hold up business the situation would be  firmly met.   There are rumors that it might voluntarily result in the closure.  There is naturally  a feeling in this country against closure as a gag  ���������on free speech:   The present might not be the  time to introduce it.   The best occasion would  be when there was no partisan strife, no contentious bill up.   But if parliament is every going to  make progress, if it is going to be at the mercy of  every obstructor the closure in some form will  have to come. It is only a matter of time.  '��������� Premier Borden made a brilliant speech in closing the debate for the government.   The most interesting features of his speech were the passages  where he showed the inconsistencies of Sir-Wilfrid  laurier.   They, were two.   One was that he had  no Jess than four times voted against the very  thing he was now'supporting���������the submitting of  the question to the people. The other was that in  1897 and later Sir Wilfrid on numerous occasions  bad spoken in favor of Canada having a voice iii  the policies of Great Britain.  Now he was opposing the sending of a Canadian minister, to England.   However, the general public, after all, are  Dot much interested in the, inconsistencies of  statesmen.   The consistent statesmen would be' a  moat uninteresting namby-pamby individual. In  reply to Sir Wilfrid's plea against the danger of  co-operating with Britain, Mr. Borden made a  brilliant retort.  lie said:  "What are you to dot Are you to have one Empire, one. foreign policy, one combined naval force,  to resist every'peril or are you to have five foreign policies and five scattered navies to go down  against the attack which may come upon them at  any timer It is idle to pretend that defence upon  the sea of this Empire is in all respects the same  as defence upon the land. The continents are separated, but the sea is one, and I speak not only  from thw-absolute sincerity of my own convictions,  but from .the well-considered opinions of men who  know infinitely more about this than J can claim  to do wben I say that I do not believe that the  aecurity of this Empire can be maintained and  preserved without a combination of the naval  forces of the Empire under one control, at least in  time of war." ^  A point which the premier drove home was tbat  the Laurier plan would not only be of no value for  defence of either the Empire or Canada, but in  addition would be intensely costly. Mr. Borden  added on this jpoint:  "Two fleet units such as they propose, would  cost, according to the latest estimate, $68,500,000;  ten years' maintenance of these two fleet units  would cos $64,500,000; total, $133,000,000. And if  you added the necessary expense of a naval organization during the next ten or fifteen years you  have to increase that by at least $17,000,000.  Therefore, the proposition of these consistent hon.  gentlemen is that, because there is no need, no  urgency, and no peril, we shall expend $150,**.  000,000."  Sir Wilfrid Laurier made an exceedingly clever  " thrust in the course of his speech closing the debate. There is no love lost betwen the Quebec  Liberals and the Nationalists, and Sir Wilfrid  was taunting them with having swallowed all their  principles for the sake of office. Winding up a  denunciation of their action he sarcastically declared, "You can fill the stomach of the leopard,  but you cannot change his spots." Story telling  in parliament is not often heard. It is a difficult  art at any time, but particularly so in the staid  atmosphere of the House of Commons. Sir Wilfrid occasionally tells a story and while'his stories  are not usually original, they are well told and  pointed.   Theyjjet him around many a difficult  VANCOUVER, BRrnSH Cousvbia,  MARCH 7, W*.  C. H.1 BY-LAW  r     i  MOT 8N UVE TITO  (By Professor B. Odium. M. A^ B-fle-)  m  &Bl  Consistency Requires Electors to Endorse  The Agreement  i    March 15th is close at Hand.  That day we often or close ourycity door to the Ca- I  nadian Northern agreement to enter and improve FalseCreek at no expense to Vancouver. <  /  n ��������� T  It is well to ask how the city is protected in event of the O. N. R. by-law being-'  carried oq the fifteenth instant ~> If our interests ha ve been properly cared for, then ''  it ia the duty of each citizen to turn out and register this vote. We must progress. '���������  We cannot stand idle wasting valuable time in view of the great demand for trans- *y  portation facilities both by water and by land. The Dominion Government propose 4���������  large expenditures. The Oovernment have thought Vancouver of sufficient import- ''  ance to make its harbor bill a Government measure and surety it is the duty of the '  citizens to do their part in supplying adequate railway terminals, either by public ''  development or by encouraging private enterprise. We pointed out last week that as 4'  a city we had abandoned the public development idea and definitely adopted the en-* *  couraging of private enterprise. It is therefore our business to make tiie wisest  and best arrangements possible and to properly Mprotect our public interest and  therefore we ask, does this agreement accomplish this! * *  -^  A brief analysis of the agreement will enabkfus to judge of its value to the eity  of Vancouver. As the agreement is printed elsewhere in thiB paper we will jiot reproduce it here, but leave the reader'to turn to the By-law Clauses as numbered.  Clause ten provides that this tide-flat shall "be filled in within five years.  This ''  we have been demanding for a decade an4 must qfe done before this property can be '  used by anyone, public^or private. The expense pf filling this flat niust necessarily < >  be enormous however done. It may be that the railroad can use its owr^tunnel dump- ''  ings and thus reduce the expense.  This is their business, not ours.      ^. *  / Clause eleven imposes upon the company the-du$y of conirtnietrng terminals J  1 and thev company have said that these terminals and depots wiUhe ������p to any on *  ( the coast. ? ...  ., Aesthetics and utility wi}l here eoipbine^to. jthe advantage of Vancouver. Jflawi  .Street, in the vicinity of False Creek, will become a "beauty spot."  I Clause twelve provides for the construction of tunnels entering this great cen-  i tre. This will be-infinitely preferable to the "open cut" of the G. N. ft. and it is  worthy of consideration. ' .      '"  Another matter we have looked forward to as a remote possibility but now of immediate attainment.  Clause fifteen is of vital importance.   It provides for estab-  Hshment o| steamship terminals which should demand more than passing attention.   The Government are doing big things for Vancouver harbour,  t       Coast cities are vieing with each other for first place in commerce on the I?a-  t cific.  ^is competition involves the "survival of the fittest" in which harbour and  * railroad terminals will figure largely.  ShaU we spurn this chance to bring large shipping interests to our city?  Clause twenty-two provides for joint use ofterminals byother^co������^hies and  Clauses twenty-four and five cares for the impartial handling of freight cars of |  other companies.  This feature has been entirely ignored by the opposition who have  built tfoeir arguments on the false assumption that the C. N. R. was getting this  ground to the exclusion of other railroads that might wish to enter Vancouver.  Street crossings and bridges are protected in a generous manner, and all de- t  tails affecting'life and property are guarded with scrupulous care. *  Lastly (Clauses 42 and 43), all bonds of the company are issued subject to J  proper carrying out of the agreement and should the company fail to keep its part ?  of the agreement the city may do the work and charge it against the bond holders ���������  which provision is received in all bonds. From this it will be observed that our ���������  council has protected all interests in detail. We believe none can object to the form j  of agreement and be consistent with our past action as a city.       -  Indifference to the terms of the agreement and the result of the election is in-  | excusable in view of the consequences of its defeat.  Opposition, innocent at first because of insufficient knowledge, is now open to I  I suspicion in the light of free and ample discussion of the agreement in public |  | meetings by able speakers, both pro and con.

Taxes were greater than for the previous November, amounting to $46 per mile of  line.   Operating income averaged $12.13 per mile '  of line for each day in November,   an   amount  available to the railways for rentals, interest on  bonds, appropriations and dividends.

He turned to story-telling when dealing  with Col. Hugh McLean, the belter of the Liberal  party. Col. McLean in his speech said that as  Premier Borden has had an opportunity to consult  with the Admiralty he must best know as to the  conditions and the necessities. Sir Wilfrid-replied:  "When the hon. member from Queens and Sun-  bury asked me to take the word of the Prime Minister on such a matter as that, it reminds me of  a little dispute between a husband and wife. The  husband reproached his wife for doing certain  things which sbe denied. But, my dear, said the  husband, I saw you with my own eyes, and she  answered: If you believe the testimony of your  own eyes rather than take the word of your own  little wife, what sort of a man are you? I am like  this unsuspecting husband. I believe the testimony  of my own eyes, and doing so I know the situation  just as well, and my hon. friend from Queens and  Sunbury (Mr. McLean) knows it just as well as  the Prime Minister or any of his colleagues do."  HAZEN BILL DE8IONED TO PROTECT CAN A-  DUN FXBHEBQ8.  Foreign Steam Trawlers Will Not Be Permitted to  Obtain Supplies and Bait at Canadian Ports  Under New Legislation.  The Hon. J. D. Hazen, Minister of^Marine and  Fisheries, is determined that Canadian fishermen  shall be protected from the encroachments of  steam trawlers, of which there are a considerable  number at work off the Atlantic coast, and for  this purpose he has introduced legislation which  will forbid foreign fishermen entering any Canadian port except under stress of weather. Any  fishing vessel will come under the same ban, and  if the clause seems somewhat drastic it is doubtless because the Department of Marine and Fisheries can see no other way of preventing an abuse  which is ruinous to inshore fishermen.

Marketing of B. G. Fruit
A Statement by the Directors of the
British Columbia Fruit Growers'
Association.
The generaly low prices received
for fruit during the past season have
made pertinent and proper a discussion of the fundamental considerations affecting the future of our fruit*
growing industry. Many different
opinions are held as to the remedy
for a situation' which, if continued,
would be intolerable. Your directors
have fully considered the facte, and
have endeavored- to reach proper conclusions'ln regard to them.
, This paper outlines the principal
factors which seem to underlie the
present situation. It Is to be hoped
that those factors will be considered
by you In your deliberations.     '
The principal condition affecting
the prices of B. C. fruit was the very
large crop in the United States, resulting ln  the  importation of large
from large timbers. Tbe stringers
from small trees are ot-beher quality
than those taken from old trees, and
the material coming from the upper
portion of the tree exhibits less
strength than that from tho lower portion.
/-
These results will assist in making
more common the use-tjf many species
and giades of timber which have hitherto been thought useless: ^Just as ln
Eastern Cauada red pine, spruce, tarn*
a rack and even balsam fir are taking
the place of white pine, In Western
Canada such species as larch can replace Douglas fir in some of the less
important industries.
/���Certain regions, notably the Nelson
and Cran brook Districts in the Southern pari of the Province, are cutting
large quantities of larch, at the present time. This timber is being' used
in all forms of construction, ln making
floors, and in many other directions.
In the Kast Kootenay, tamarack will
rank among the four most Important,
noods. - As time goes on there will
doubtless be great development of the
tamarack trade', mainly because  the
quantities of American fruit at low
prices, or, what is worse, shipped on old-time prejudice against it is rapidly

cent, larger than the average of the
laat ten years. It was 12 per cent,
larger than the 1911 crop. It totaled
around 40,000,000 barrels. The quaV
ity waa generaly high, 15 per cent, better .than the ten years' average. In
the Northwest States, the box-apple
States, about 20,000 carloads are be*
ing shipped, as against only 9,000 laat
year.
As a result of these extremely large
crops, prices would naturally he low,
supply greatly exceeding demand; 25
per cent, ot the Ontario apple crop Is
said to have rotted on the ground.-
There has been a similar condition In
New York State. The Western States,
however, will get something for practically all .their apples. British Columbia did comparatively well in the
mater of prices, for our fruit brought
more than in any other section of
America.
Other general conditions which
helped to lower the prices were:���-
1. Tigbtnes of tbe) money market
of the United States and generally
throughout the world.
2. The largest proportion of boxed
apples to barrels ever experienced.
3. Detective methods of picking
and packing, which injured fruit and
lessened its keeping quality.
4.   lack of storage facilities.
5. The fruit-growers require their
money in the fall, and hank loans are
not made on unsold apples; apples
must, therefore, be sold in the fall.
6. Fruit distributing organiwttion,
both in British .Columbia and in the
Northwest States, in the latter particularly, should be made much stronger. -	
7. The boxed apple business is\a
new one, and little is known about ef
fective means of distributing It to
the best advantage.
i. Practically no advertising i��
done to increase tbe demand for the
Western boxed apple, while $200,090
a year is spent in advertising California oranges. ���*
9. The very large apple-handling
concerns in England and in New
York are working to depress price3
on boxed apples.

woodworking industries have benefitted in other countries by Just aw-h

A  VALUABLE .OFFER.
em
-* -1&3
Hazen Bill Designed to Protect Caoadlao Hsbertes
In the last number of Conservation,
tbe monthly bulletin of the Commission of Conservation, appears a remarkable offer to the farmers of Canada. It is aa'follows: "Draw a
sketch of your farm, giving the number of acres in each field, the kind of
soil'and the kind of crops grown on it
for the past three years.' ^Alsp specify
the line you are particularly interested In, namely, dairying, beef production, sheep or hogs, or grain growing.
Distance from the market has also to
be considered. Send this to the Commission of Conservation, Ottawa, and
they will make suggestions that will
be of material help in deciding the
best crop rotation for your farm.'
This'offer is' reproduced here for a
double reason. One is tbat it might
be given a wider publicity. Headers
who bave not received the copy of
Conservation will thus be able to
avail themselves of this splendid offer. Necessarily, such a' bulletin has
a somewhat limited circulation. The
wider can be made the knowledge of
the offer, the more will Canada benefit
by it.
The second reason is to call attention to the wonderful advance
made in governmental efforts to develop agriculture. Fifty years ago every farmer had to gather from somewhere enough knowledge^ahd experience to make him successful. He had
to depend upon traditions and habits,
or to make personal experiments
which Involved delay, if not lost).
But today the Canadian farmer has at
his disposal the wisdom, experience
and practical findings of a staff of
experts. He has but to ask a question to have it answered in line with
the most modern science. Agriculture
British Columbia is fighting forjig no-longer a hit-or-miss proposition,
her natural markets, which we ate if the Canadian farmer fails, it will
jpst beginning to adequately supply, [ surely be by reason of his own fault,
..nd in which our competitors are at and not for lack of federal co-opera-
piesent strongly entrenched.
11. Because of a curious condition
with regard to the Fruit Marks Act
and . its enforcement, British Columbia growers are discriminated against
in favor of their foreign competitors.
12. Canning, preserving, and other
wise preparing fruits and vegetables,
are as.yet developed to a very limited
extent In this Province. In California
$28,000,000 worth of fruit by-products
are produced annually.
The above are among the principal
conditions which depressed prices
this year. The fruit-growers of the
Province expect you to deal with the
situation, and recommend and follow
r.p means_of securing our markets.

WESTERN LARCH
A series of tests to determine the
mechanical and physical properties of
Western larch (tamarack) has been
recently made by forest products experts, and,it has been shown that the
strength is 81.7 per cent, where West-
envhemlock is 88 per cent, nnd Douglas fir 100.per cent:? It.is^sfipwn;that

< A further proof of this agricultural
assistance, given provisionally, was
shown in Dr. Creelman's excelent address at the Canadian Club, which is
printed in full elsewhere. He showed
how in Ontario the district representatives were doing valuable -work in
working with the farmers, givins
scientific demonstrations on the farm
and introducing new and improved
methods. In this the farmers of Ontario are especially- fortunate, beini?
able to avail themselves of both provincial and - federal assistance. If
science and co-operation are of any
avail/ the urban drift will soon cease

of the members from the Maritime provinces, irrespective of party, have stated, the loss will be
Three Mile Limit.
In introducing his legislation which
is an amendment to the Customs and
Fisheries Protection Act., Mr. Hazen
said:���
It has been found ln the department that under that Aet it ie practically impossible to make selsures
of foreign vessels that are within the
three-mile limit and preparing to fish
because, according to the opinion of
the Department of Justice and tbe construction put on that section by the
courts of the country in order to enforce the provisions of that Act
against a vessel which without author*
ity is within the three-mile limit pre*
sparing to fish, you have to prove It is
preparing to fish within tbe threemile
limit. In other words lf the owner
says: I was preparing to fish, but
I was' making my preparations with
the intention of fishing outside of territorial waters, you sre powerless to
enforce the provisions of tbis Aet. We
want to amend that section so as to
provide that lf a vessel is within the
three-mile limit and is preparing to
fish without license or authority to do
so it shall be liable to the penalty of
forfeiture.
Present Law Inadequate.
"The result of the present wording
of the law haa been that on many occasions offenders nave gone/ scot-free
because the Act did not express what
the intention of the legislature evidently was when the law was passed.
; "The Bill contains another important amendment.   Under the treaty of
1818 .between the United Btatee and
Great Britain   with   regard   to the
North Atlantic Coast-Fisheries, signed
o October 80, "1818, article 1, would
show that there was an   agreement
whereby in certain-waters specified in
article 1, fidhermen and citizens of tbe
United States have tbe same rights in
regard to fishing as have citizens of
Canada.
'.   .      Mistake in Wording.
"In the drafting of this section of
tbe treaty the mistake waa made of
using tbe expression 'foreign vessels'
Instead of United States vessels and
tbe result of that is not only citizens
of the United StateB who, under convention, bave an absolute and proper
right to fish in those waters, but cltisens ot all foreign countries as well
who fish In those waters cannot be
proceeded against or the penalties can
not be exacted   so   fishermen   from
France or any other country can fish
in these waters and we are .powerless
to preyent tbem."
Injure Gear of Fishermen.
The minister then explained that the
object of the amendment was to sped,
fy more definitely the word "citizen"
which in reality only means the fish-
ernmen of Newfoundland and the United States.    The minister proceeded
further:
"These steam trawlers   come   out
from France and operate outside of
the territorial waters but   they   are
capable of doing just as much injury
to the gear of our fishermen 'as are
trawlers  from  the  United  States  or
from Newfoundland.   There would be
no great purpose served by stopping
the trawling industry so far_ as  tlio
United States, Canada and Newfoundland are concerned if we did not do
something to stop  it so  far as  the
French trawlers are concerned.    T3-e
United States, Canada and Newfoundland could come to an agreement tc
prevent the outfitting of trawlers fron-
their ports, but we are powerless as
against  the- French  trawlers,  unless
we take action-in this* Way.    Ever
then, we may have difficulty because
France owns St. Pierre and Miquelor.
and the trawlers may be able to oper
ate from these islands as a base. Th*
officers   of   the   Fishery   Department
do not believe it would be possible foi
i France to successfully carry on the
j trawling industry unless her trawl-
; ers" are  permitted  to  come  into  the
ports of Canada to buy bait and coal
and other necessary supplies.   There
is no doubt in the world that if this
provision were put in force it would
prevent French Fishermen from getting supplies from Canadian ports."
Assist   Canadians.
The minister    believes    that    laws
should be framed to assist Canadian
^���-a
more than counterbalanced by the iatptmrtmaat in
Canadian fisheries. The government cutters wfll
have s much easier task in catching any offend-_
era against the law. - ',    '
"-vS
and assist our own fishermen u against those of other countries."..
Act Is-First Step.
The Hon. Mr. Haxen concluded with
an Important utterance when be stated
that another conference would tbe held.
In concluding a splendid speech he
said:
"So members will see that it la not
only the careful patrolling of (he coast
ot Nova Scotia or of Canada and keeping these trawlers without the three-
mile limit, but that aa great dinger to
onr fishing industry may occurliy their
operations on the banks far-distant
from the littoral of Neva Scotia and
ether parts of Canada. While I would-
no\ contend that the passage of this
Act alone as lt stands is going to
remedy the evils which may result
from steam trawling, yet it to a first
step towards preventing the ports ot
our country being made beset from
which the operation of the steam trw*
Ier is carried on, and It Canada and
the United States and Newfoundland
come to an agreement the conditions
may be greatly improved.
����� ... %.
Further Conference.
"In a short time all this information
will be collected and another conference will be held.   If it is then de*
cided by these countries 'to prevent
steam trawling hy vessels fitted out
at their ports and owned by their citizens, and if all three countries and
Oreat ^Britain enact lawe for that purpose and prevent steam trawlers from
France aad other countries from using
their ports aa bases of operation, then
can be accomplished the prevention;
ln great measure ot what tha fishermen of this country, what the hon.
member for Gloucester and. other hon
members believe may he a very great
source of destruction to the fishermen and very great injury to the public interest. ^
Will he Followed Up.
"Tbat Is the position in which the
matter stands-today. It will he followed np by the government. As soon
as this information le obtained, a further conference will be held with the
authorities of Newfoundland and the
United States. It is to be hoped that
the-result will be to bring about seme*
thing that will be ln tbe Interest of
tbe protection of the fisheries of Canada, but this Bill is not Introduced
primarily for tbat object. Members
discussed it as if that was its object
Thst is not it. incidentally tt Is at
In that direction; -the objepts tt we*
sought to attain I have already *#

This plan of co-operating with  and assisting the province is In vogue  In Europe and has grown out ot centuries of experience in the administration of organisations working for the  perfection of field agriculture. It vir-  tualy imposes upon all the provinces  the maintenance of a highly efficient  service for agriculture, tor whicb  they must bear half the expense. The  benefit which any province may receive on account of these subventions,  while not involving Urge amounts, Is  restricted only by a liberal estimate of  wbat the province is able to accomplish the first year.  During the past month 496 samples  were received at the seed laboratory  compared with 227 the corresponding  month last year. The Increase however Is principally In root and vegetable seeds. Most of the samples of  alsike seed were uncleaned anil consequently low grade.  Of the toted samples of timothy and  clovers only aboat 25 per cent, were  from farmers.  ' GEO.

Chiropractic  succeeds   where ',',  medicine fails. ������  Hoars 1:30 to 6 Consultation fre ���������  e>eee������e������eeseeesesesee������e*oeo  The naval debate during the past week hss  paled into insignificance beside the calling to the  T)ar of the house of R. C. Miller, the recalcitrant  witness who refused to tell the public accounts  committee what he did with the $������1,026 he admits  he paid out to get $117,000 worth of government  contracts.   To have s prisoner on its hands is a  novelty for parliament dnd no incident for years  has created as much amusement, although it hss  its serious side as well as comic.   The whole affair was first treated as a huge joke and columns  of stuff were written by imaginative Ottaws correspondents either describing his horirble position  locked up in the tower, pr the beautiful time  he was having ordering up sumptuous wine" dinners at the expense of the country.   Mr. Miller  himself is a pale, washed-out looking individual,  largely distinguished by his enormous drooping  moustache.   He looks as he describes himself, as  a man with a few law suits on his hands. -As he  pines in jail meditating on the heinousness of his  crime in defyin gparliament he has at least the  satisfaction of knowing he is now a hiteoric character.   When many of the present cabinet ministers are dead and buried and when they are no  longer even a memory, Mr. Miller and his case  will be quoted as precedent.   His history will be  embodied in the next revised Bourinot and a hundred years from now statesmen will be^ quoting  the Miller case.   It may have been a mistake to  have dragged him before the bar in the first place,  but having gone as far as it did there was but  one thing parliament could do to uphold what  little dignitv it has and commit him to the common jail.    To have allowed Mr. Miller to have  defied parliament would have been the end of sny  usefulness as far as the Public Accounts Committee is concerned. Just who hss been the moat  embarrassed this week, Mr. Miller or parliament,  it is hard to say. The parliament buildings sre  not fitted up as a jail snd to have a state prisoner  is a unique experience in Canadian history. The  last case in England wss in 1879. It was very  similar to this. However, the prisoner succeeded  in.evading summons until the day before prorogation. He was then sent to the Newgate jail, but  was, of course, released when the house arose. If  it is any satisfaction Mr. Miller can reflect on the  fact that he has good company, for Walpole spent  a period in the tower on command of parliament.  B. H. STEVENS AND OPIUM TRADE.  There have been many rumors lately that the  British Government is. yielding to the pressure of  wealthy Indian merchants who have made fortunes out of the opium trade and that the Chinese  government has been asked to remove or moderate  the present edict prohibiting this traffic in the  Celestial republic. As a man who has seen the  degradation which has been caused from the  opium traffic Mr. H. H. Stevens, the member for  Vancouver, has asked the government-if its attention has been drawn to the statements and if  it is prepared to voice the feeling of Canada  against the infamous trade by protesting to the  British authorities. Mr. Stevens feels that Canada  is vitally interested in the question with its  present Chinese population which almost invariably bring the opium habit with its debasing influences with them to this country.
