Since when did Liberal leaders become  recognized authorities upon national questions?  Is is not a fact that in almost every case they  took the wrong side of every national question?  Were they right when they proposed commercial union with the United States? 7  Were they right when the advocated unrestrictedReeiprociy? -  '���������:������������������������������������������������������-J.  Were they right when they opposed the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway?  Were they right when they tried to force  through Parliament the Reciprocity Pact of 1911?  If they were right, the people were wrong and  if the people were wrong in any jof these cases  they are unrepentant still.  The heart of the Liberal Party is sound but  that party has been led badly on every great occasion. The leaders appeared to have a genius for  getting in wrong on great national issues,, and  there is a touch if impudence in their suggestion  now that on a matter of national and imperial consequence their views should prevail. They were  not able to carry out an unpopular policy even  when they were in power, and they are less likely  to be able now to .carry out a similarly unpopular  policy when they are in opposition.  LIBERALS THROW ANOTHER BOOMERANG.  Scented Graft In Contract for  Patent  Locks  for Mail Bags  Hon. L.,P. Pelletier, Postmaster-General was the  object of the last "boomerang" charge from the  Opposition: '  That. Mr. Pelletier had contracted with the  Ontario Equipment Company of Ottawa, for 350,-  000 patent mail bag locks;-:at one dollar each.  That the price was excessive.  '       y  That the company was composed of Mr. Pelletier's friends.  That the contract should have been let by tender, ���������������������������y-'^.y    7 ������������������^ V, :.;..  That the supply of locks contracted for was  enormously in excess of tne needs of the Depart*  ment.  In short that there w������tr~st bi^graft. :  This question was raised in the House by Hon.  Rodolphe Lemieux, ex-postmaster-General. Mr.  Lemieux went as far as he dared in the House,  and the charge was amplified ^and extended v as  above by the Liberal party newspapers.  Tiie Truth About It.  Mr. Pelletier has given the House the exact  facts of the case as shown by the records of the  Department, bearing the names of the highest  permanent officials of the postal service, men of  known capacity and integrity. First of all, the  pftntrftct *  The* contract was entered into on October 26  #f last year. It binds the contractor to supply  the locks as required at the price set in the contract, one dollar each for lock and key. It does  not bind the Department to take any stipulated  number of locks. -  ,  This contract, drawn on the usual form of the  Post Office Department, is for a period of four  years, the usual period.,  What OircnmsUnces Were.  Mr. Pelletier read to the House statements from  R. M. Coulter, the Deputy Postmaster-General,  Hecor B. Verret, the Assistant Deputy, aud Sidney Smith, Controller of Postal Stores, giving the  circumstances of the lock transaction, These circumstances were:  The patent under which the lock formerly used  for the mail bags was manufactured, had expired.  The old lock was then in a condition described by  the efforts of the Department as so defective that  it "could be opened by other means than the key,  and he contents of the bag thus got at and letters  and valuables exracted."  Never Did It Otherwise.  For obvious reasons the policy of the Department has been to change the lock every fifteen or  eighteen years. A new lock was tested, found to  be satisfactory, and the contract awarded. It was  let without tender for the reason that the artiele  is a patented one.   Says Mr. Smith:  "The Post Office lock has never been put up to  competitive tender, because being covered by  patent rights the Department was not at liberty  By Our Special Correspondent, Arthur R. Ford  V  ���������f  Commons  Ottawa, April 14.���������/The week which has just  closed at Ottawa is an historic one, bringing to  the Canadian Parliament the power to deal with  a minority that attempts to usurp to itself the  functions of the majority. The Liberal party has  been balked in its attempt to defeat what is plainly the will of the people.as embodied in the naval  proposals of Premier Borden and the people of  Canada will approve the course the Government  took in stopping their mad course.  The present rules of the House of  were intended to apply to'.fair and reasonable  men. But they are totally inadequate when a  class of men in the House like Hon. William Pugsley, F. B. Carvell and their like who this session -  have been straining every'effort'to hold up all  Government business, all to advance their own  ends. The Government gave them every opportunity, they persisted, and the closure has ,b\en  applied.  It is riot the navy bill alone that justifies the  Government in its action, though that would have  been sufficient. Closure is equally necessary for  the future. The Opposition that has obstructed  this session might obstruct any other session arid  might obstruct in the same way on any other  question. Estimates or any other item of business  would serve the ends of the Liberal tongue wag^  gers. The length to which Parliamentary sessions  have been extended in recent years lias become a  situation calling for remedy. With the power of,  limiting debate to adequate dimension there  will be shorter sessions and more busines accomplished.  It is no great constitutional struggle that has  begun oyer -the closure resolution, as Liberal  newspapers would have the country believe. It  is no infringement on free speech or free debate,:  no attempt to "gag" representatives of the people. It is a simple provision that has been adopted in far more rigorous form in every other coun-  . .try in the world, arid that has the. commendation  of half a dozen ex-ministers who were associates  of Sir Wilfrid Laurier n power, not to menton  the leading newspaper supporters of the Liberal  -. party*;.7^--;.v;,:,....7..-.r',.,: ..;S*. ...;iM..,w...x.,,;..  A measure whieh Hon. Mr. Aylesworth, Hon.  Mr. Murphy and Hon. Mr. Fisher have all endorsed is surely not an infringement on Canadian  liberty. And these ministers of Sir Wilfrid said  in 1911 that if they were returned to power in  the election of that year they would bring in  closure. It is the irony of the situation that they  never had the chance, but that it is being brought  . in against them by the very men upon whom they  Hoped to exercise it. The whine the.Liberals have  set up comes with rather bad grace considering  their past policy.  There can be no legitimate criticism of the Government's action! That a group of men led by  Hon. William Pugsley should have the power to  hold up all public business and attempt to force  an election purely to meet their own ends is intolerable.; There was but one course open to the  Government, that was to curb the obstructionists  and the Government has done it with vigor.  The closure bill, which has been introduced by  Premier Borden to prevent a continuance of the  parliamentary anarchy which the stuhhorness of  the Liberals have brought about, has been drafted with remarkable care and wisdom. It protects  free speech and gives ample opportunity for all  reasonable debate and yet prevents a minority  of the members from degrading parliament and  making the House of Commons a laughing stock  as has been done in the present ease. The purpose of closure is to secure to the majority of the  people'8 representatives the power to carry on  the business of the country, for which they are  responsible to the people themselves.  The rules which have been proposed are far  more moderate and not nearly as drastic as those  in force in the British House. They are also not  as drastic as those which are used in the American House of Representatives. Every representative assembly in the civilized world has been compelled in the course of time to protect itself by  closure rules in one form or another and probably  none are as moderate or protect free speech as the  present proposals.  It is doubtful if rules have been introduced in  any country under more commanding and more  to call for tenders, besides which the calling for      __,  ���������__--���������     ���������  tenders would lead to a publicity and knowledge^ provocative circumstances than those which have  of the internal mechanism of the lock amongst  lock makers and lock dealers, which is not per-  missable in the case of a lock intended to secure  the safety of mails."  (Continued on Page 4)  dictated the steps now proposed by the government. It is in the highest degree creditable to  Rt. Hon. R. L. Borden and his colleagues that  under the circumstances they have brought down  measures so eminently fair and even generous to  the Opposition, and have shown so strong a desire to preserve intact to the utmost possible extent the liberties of the representatives of the  people of all shades of party opinion.  ���������The first change in the rule provides that motions of a more or less formal character shall not  be debatable and therefore eanot be used for the  purpose of obstruction.  The second amendment provides merely that  after the debate upon the question under consideration has been adjourned in the House administer of the eVown may give notice tHar such motion or proceeding shall not be adjourned beyond  the next sitting. If the House decided favorably  oii the motion then the debate can last for the remainder of that day and until two o'clock the following morning, or until the close of the speech  of the member who may be speaking at two  o-clock. Under the English rules any member may  at any time move the closing of the debate On  any subject. This may be done even when another  member is in the middle of a speech. The motion  that tbe debate close must be immediately put to  a vote, without any discussion whatever.  The third amendment proposed by the Government provides that on Thursdays and Fridays  tiie House shall go into comniittee of supply without debate.   It is also provided, however, that the  estimates of each department must first be taken  up on some other day so that any mem per desiring .  to challenge the administration of the department  in any respect will havefull opportunity-tp do so  {^Outside of the closure excitement the main interest during .the past week has centred in the  passing of the Japanese Treaty.   TheT^ly- elause  of^the treaty which was debated at length was  thjst in regard tp immigration.   The Borden Gov-  ertj,ment, by inserting a clause iijr the act prbtectr  Tinjf; Canadian interests have definitely prevented  '������������������ thl Dominion from being flooded 7with ai* influx  frjam the Flowery.

This  has already been done and the Premier on Friday read a statement to this effect from the Imperial Government of Japan.'  The principal speech from the Government  benches was made by H. H. Stevens, member for  Vancouver, who very lucidly placed tbe^ position  of British Columbia before the House arid went  into the history of the whole subject, dealing with  it from an industrial standpoint. Speaking of  the national standpoint Mr. Stevens said:  "We have in Canada a population of^ less than  8,000,000 people. It is recogwzed that climatic  conditions in the prairie provinces and eastern  Canada offer a fairly; good protection against a  large influx of Asiatics. While this is not a complete protection, it is fairly good protection. But  on ihe Pacific coast, we have a climate that is  particularly attractive to the majority of Asiatics.  There we have less than 325,000 of a white population. In the Orient facing us daily, there are  over 800,000,000, Asiatics. A large number of  these Asiatics have a very jealous eye upon the  Pacific coast of America. I know from actual  personal information that from India over 100,000  Hindus were prepared to come to: Canada when  the move started in 1907, and whieh we were fortunate enough to have stopped. To-day three  Hindus.are on their way to the Colonial Office in  London for the purpose of endeavoring to have  the British Government over-ride the Canadian  authorities and insist that the Hindu shall be allowed to come into British Columbia nnd Canada.  There are 100,000 ready to come. I could give to  this House some of the reasons why we do not  want them, and 1 shall go into these reasons at  greater length upon another occasion, but I can  say briefly, that the traditions, the education, the  caste system in vogue in India, the moral principles of the people, are sueh that we dare not admit the Hindus into Canada in very large numbers or else the national standard of our country  will be so lowered that Canada, in a few years,  will not be the recognized country that we expect  it to be.  "The racial and social side of the question is a  very serious one.   In Canada we cannot afford to  permit three hundred thousand,  people    to be  placed at the mercy of some eight hundred million  (Continued on Page 8)  THE KITSILANO RESERVE 00MTR0V1B8T.  "It would apear that at the present moment, our*  Member at Ottawa for Burrard, and the Attorney  General for British Columbia have somewhat  "locked horns" on the nature and result of the ,  Kitsilano deal. Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.P., waa  busy, as- the people's representative at the Dominion Capital, striving to secure the Reserve for  the people. In the meantime the Attorney-General  manages to secure this property, either for private parties or for the Province.     ,  If for private parties we must wait and learn  the facts; but if for the Province, then the dis-^  pute resolves itself into the advantage or disadvantage of the Province owning the Reserve instead of the Dominion.  Which would be the better ownership? WbV  would be the better administrators of this large  and valuable realty? Dominion or Province I  One must be sure of the facts before taking aides,  but if there be a right and a wrong, then we  should speak out our minds fearlessly on the matter.   This we shall do at a later time. .  "v  However, in the meantime it may be possible,  for the public aims of Mr. Stevens and of the  Honourable Attorney-General to harmonize, and  run on parallel lines to the advantage of Vancouver British Columbia and the whole Dominion. In general terms it is safe to affirm that, all  things being equal, the general good should be  sought first, and the individual, or community  good receive secondary consideration. But this  can be dealt with later when all the- facts, are  in possession of the public.  It is said that a large Yankee Railway corporation had nearly got a grip on the Reservation,  arid that Mr. Bowser saved ihe situation by stepping in at the crueial momen. However, fitun tiie  past, the Railways seem to have had good pasturage ih Vancouver and naturally are scouring  around 4er anything in sight. The public shall  be able to watch; on the outside,perhaps; out'  watching is a positive duty in relation to this atid  some other matters.  OLD BRITADX &TOL HI THE RUr-TOWO.

HPU AND A WAB BETWEEN JENGLAND  "^p-t1* 9*9    9af**j*9mrW**j9m^*w+y *9 ���������  At the first sure omens of a war of this sort,  Britain would do well to shift 200,000 Indian  troops within striking distance of tbe enemy.  They could be moved by swift merchantmen over  to the ancient land of Goshen, and held in readiness to be used where tbey would be of the most  effective aid in the cause of the whole Empire.  In addition to their immense value within  striking distance of Italy, in case the war took on  the nature of the Triple Alliance against the  Triple Entente, they would be within ready reach  of Tripoli, which should belong to Britain in any  case. I mean the eity, port, bay and immediate  sea-coast of Tripoli.  Furthermore, these splendid soldiers, as loyal  to Britain as are the German soldiers' to the  Kaiser, would be ready to reach East Africa, now  under the flag of Germany, as well as German  West Africa.  Towards the south of the Red Sea.lies the land  of Eritrea which belongs to Italy, which valuable  coast-line could be taken in a few days by a few  third rate British cruisers. In any case the presence of even 100,000 trained loyal Hindoos, ready  to fall upon the enemies of Britain wherever they  could do the best service, would have a mighty  moral effect, and especially upon Italy, one of  Germany's allies. During the"Boer war England  would not make use of the troops of India, but  in this -she made a serious mistake. Perhaps in a  gigantic European war she would not repeat this  blunder.

The reservoir itself is 1 mile  1,190 yards in length and ita maximum  depth is 40 feet. The action of a  strong wind on the vast expense of  water may well be imagined, but ample precautions against such a possibility have been taken in the shape J  of a huge breakwater built across tb*  centre. This reservxoir will be filled  from the northern end with water  pumped from the River ]Lea. This water will be stored in the reservoir/ for  a considerable Ume, during which purification processes of great value will  take place hy the agency of natural  forces, and after thia the water will  flow through regulating towers into  a tnnneli and then along a channel  nearly two miles in length of the existing distributing basin adjoining the  Chingford Mill Pumping Statlo. The  total quantity of water stored in tbe  work* of the Metropolitan Water  Board is no less than 13,000,000,000  gallos, and. the dally supply to the  district cater for by. the Board is 244,-  000,000 gallons.  Probably the moat wonderful feature of the new reservoir Is the pumping station at the north end, contain  ing the marvellous Humphrey explosion pumps. Within 60 seconds, I2e,-  000 gallons are pumped Into the reservoir. Each succeeding minute a similar huge balance of water will pass  through tbe pumps, the total lifting  capacity of which is 180,000,000 gal  ions a day. There are five in all, four  capable of delivering 40,000,000 gallons a day, and one smaller one .with  a lifting capacity of 20,000,000. The  capacity of these pumps is far be  yond anything the world has ever  known. In fact the pumping plant is  unique in water works construction,  for the Humphrey pumps the action of  the internal combustion cylinder is di  rectly applied to the raising of water  ���������a revolutionary, process in this  branch of engineering. The chief features of tbis type of pump is its great  economy, for, as the explosion takes  place in direct contact witb the water  to be lifted, there are no transmission  losses.

The best popular conception  of the apparatus is that of a huge  swinging pendulum, formed of the  mass of water which moves to and  fro, but always ln such a manner that  at each cycle 12 tons of water leaves  the apparatus at the high level while  12 tons of fresh water enter at the  low level to take its place. The pumps  can be stopped and started instantaneously by merely controlling a  switch in the electric ignition circuit,  so that it is possible to have all five  pumps at rest at one moment and yet  all working at full load half a minute later.  i  ���������  For Sale  Eggs.

It is arranged  so that it can be sent, just like a post card, for a cent or two,  to any place in Canada or the Unied States. The endeariu-*  idea about it is the embedded LUMINOUS CROSS, .which  will shine all night long (or in any dark room) in a GLORIOUS, MYSTIC BLUE LIGHT, after you had it exposed to  daylight for a few minutes. The price is so low that anyona  is enabled to be convinced of its real nautre. It is indeed  an article whieh is held in high esteem by any Christian  family or person. The Shining Cross is made of a stone,  whieh is found only near Jerusalem, and of which already  the Bible speaks of as the LUMINOUS STONE in picturing  Solomon's temple.

Why? The answer  1s given by Colonel Seely, Secretary  of State for War.  In tbe House of Commons the other  day he made a highly important stately ment on the British aerial fleet, in the  course of which he remarked: "If any  one tries to find out what foreign nations are doing about aviation he will  immediately find   himself   confronted  with a blank wall.   We have alao endeavored to prevent other people from  finding out what we have been doing,  and In thjis we have received assistance���������which I take this opportunity of  acknowledging���������from the whole press  ('of the United Kingdom, who have refrained from    publishing matters of  great importance which obviously had  better be kept secret in the Interests  j-of the state. We have now an understanding that information of real value  to the Btate shall not leak out by unauthorized    communications   to   the  [press.   That haa added* to the obscurity which haa prevailed."  What Britain has really accomplish*  led Is worth telling.    Hear the War  'Secretary's summary:  "The progress has been rapid. Today, excluding the navy, which has  made provision with regard to hydro*  planes and in other respects, the total  strength of the Royal Plying Corps is  126 officers and 620 men. A year ago  we had twelve flying officers. I come  now to material, and It is on this point  that most misapprehension, I think,  has existed. The army is not in pos*  ^session of any large rigid dirigible balloon not because it has feared to face  the expenae. but because it was deliberately laid down from the start that  the British army at the present time  ���������'does not require what we may called a  Zeppelin.

We  also have a biplane, which is supposed  to be a. slow machine. Over a measured course in a series of four tests  this biplane averaged 91.4 miles an  hour, flying backwards and forwards,  with and against the wind. It maintained at times a speed in still air of  100 miles an hour.  "These are very remarkable achievements. It is impossible for me to claim  one tiny fraction of credit for it, but  we can claim credit for British Inventive skill and genius, for good work  quietly and silently done to produce  these remarkable results.

The Postmaster-General also answered the charge as published in the  Liberal press, that the contract had  been given to his friends.   He said:  "I may say that I do not know personally any of the directors of that  company, that I do not know the manager except for having met him once,  perhap8 twice, but I am sure of having  met him once in my office in the presence of my officers, when he wanted to  get $1.10 for this contract and when  I discussed the matter with him. That  ia the only time I met the gentleman,  I have never spoken to him before or  since. That is the friend to whom  these newspapers allude." .  No NumbeiyPtxed.  The idea that the Department was  contracting for 350,000 of these new  locks arose in this way, as explained  by a memorandum sighed by Hector  B. Verret, Assistant Deputy Postmaster-General: .  "At page 6,441 of the Hansard of  March 19th, 1913, Mr. Lemieux asked  how many new locks had been bought  for mall bags. Mr. Pelletier answered: 350,000.  When this question was asked by  Mr. Lemieux, it was almost six  o'clock, whilst we were rushing the  May Upset Mao Deal  Mr. H. H.

Bowser had completed sale with  the Kitsilano Indians, stated that he  had no official information on the subject, but that the action did not altogether meet with the approval of the  federal government.  When Interviewed, Mr. Stevens stated that he could not understand the attorney-general's action, and stated:  "I have been working on this matter  for about a year and had everything  ready whereby the reserve was to have  been transferred to the public works  department for harbor purposes at a  figure to be fixed which would have  been fair to the Indians. I advised Mr.  Bowser fully of my efforts and intentions and regret \-*eyond expression  that he has taken such a drastic  course.

I  discussed the matter with the Deputy  Ministers and the Controller of postal Stores, who were of the same  opinion.   ^ ���������    - .  Jn the meantime a lock had been  patented under number 143,823. We  found that this lock would be perfectly safe for the mails, and nfter. many  experiments before the Postmaster*  General, be came to the ooncjuston  th|t the lock should be accepted, provided the priee waa the same aa that  paid for the old one. All the old locks  had to be replaced according to the  terms of the contract, which reads  as follows:';  ���������The contractor, will substitute a  "new lock for an old lock as fast as  "the same can be ' manufactured,  "which new lock is patented under  "No. 142,823,"  His Estimate  After having studied the files and  seen the number bf locks in use,  which I found was about 120,000, I  came to the conclusion that my estimate of 300.000 to 860,000 was (a  Uttle) too high, but no one can determine in advance how many new locks  will be required during the period of  four years,, according, to 4be growth  of the country and the requests for  the opening of post offices.  According to tbe contract no locks  can be purchased from the company  unless an order le given by tbe Controller of Postal Stores, who has been  ln the service forty-three years, and I  will not myself authorise any. purchase unless recommended by him.  When I gave you such answer I had  In mind the Parcel Post System,  which will no doubt call for a very  considerable number of bags of large  sise, each of which must be fitted with  One of these locks. The Increase in  the quantity of locks required will  thus be abnormal and it la not only  probable but certain that a very large  quantity will be required during the  next four years for this purpose  alone."  was a commencement.

The Postmaster-General declared  that the price fixed for this good lock  was the same as the price paid for  the old defective lock, which price  was fixed by Mr. Lemieux while In  office. This Mr. Lemieux solemnly denied.  Mr. Pelletier thereupon produced a  memorandum of tbe Post Office Department, dated October 15, 1907,  signed by the Controller, and addressed to Mr. Laschlnger, the then Assistant Deputy, fixing the' price to be  paid for the old lock at one dollar.

The sound gtatlfted the Squire and  spurred him on to greater efforts.

Hla unavailing struggles snd   protestations  soon ceased, and not much beyond a  lew groan now and again escaped him.  Presently Felix gave him another salutary shake, similar to a terrier's luaty  frantic movement with   a   rat   and  whirled him around,  j   His eye-glasses were off, swinging  to and fro like a pendulum, and the  Squire's energy had burst the stud-  holes In his collar and shirt, exposing  Ida dark; firm young throat    Felix  looked Into his, white agonised face,  Into the wide strained eyes swimming  In tears, beautiful, patient mournful,  and pure as the eyes of a gaxelle, and  then hla whip arm dropped to his, side.

"Felix," she said, pulling at the door,  "you know there are night and morning frosts now. If he lies there in this  bitter wind It will kill him!"  "And society will be rid of an arrant  rascal! Sit down, Agnes, and let's  have no more of lt. In trying to emulate your friends you make yourself  out worse than Judith and Mrs. Wycherly together.

He slammed the door, threw  Ills whip Into what he called the keep-  'Ing-iooan, at the beck of the hall, and  amrched Into the parlor where Agnes  wee shivering over tbe fire.  1   "Agnes," he said, closing the door  carefully, and turning his full bright  eyes on her, "It waa only yesterday  morning that you assured me there  ires nothing between you end Farley.  1 believed It and If you still wish me  |o believe lt you must tell me the reason why you isle! back In that fellow's  arms."  * She lifted her eyes to his atem face  for a moment, dropped them, and  stared silently into the flre.  "J am ashamed," be said at last, see-  lug there was no prospect    of   her  speaking, "utterly ashamed that a sis-  ' ter of mine should have so little self-  respect, be so lost to all sense of right  and wrong, so devoid of all chaste,  pure, womanly instincts.

"He asked me; he told me in the  Hargraves' conservatory that he  wanted to tell me about Mrs. Wycherly, how she had managed to trap,him  Into making her an offer."

I  j   "I don't know," she said plteously.'  j   "1 don't comprehend you ,Agnes," he  aald, looking at her puzzled and doubt* |  fully, "you are clear enough about the  altitude of all other nice points, but  with  regard  to   virtuous   discretion,'  the crowning point where a woman Is  generally most sensitive, you appear j  utterly callous, you totally fail to see'  the enormity of your conduct.    I've  helpless, broken-hearted fashion; "you  will be sorry you did this one day."  ."So Farley told me," he answered,  smiling a little.  She drifted her eyea and looked at  him, lolling with his back against the  door. The steel blue light in his eyes,  the determined set of the firm, square  jew, the compressed lips, and above  all the Irritating cynical smile were  decided signs of unflinching obduracy,  and It began to dawn on her that all  pleadings, prayers, tears, and supplications would be In vain, mere puny,  feathery taps upon a steep, rock-like  wall of adamant. She sank down in  the basket-chair, moaning and  strengthless, overcome witb a terrible  feeling of hopeless, helpless despair,  and gazed at her powerful-opponent  transformed from a happy, easy-going,  even-tempered, good fellow into a man  of flint. For aU he apparently cared  about ber, or Paul's, or any outBide  suffering he might -just as well have  been hewn out of a solid block of  granite.  r,pellx," she said, changing her tactics. "1 promise you 1 will stay here  if you will go yourself or send somebody to see if Mr. Farley has gone  .home." ������������������������������������  "I've not the slightest doubt but  what you would," he returned, bluntly,  "but ldr. Farley's affairs neither concern me nor my household. I should  have Some supper and get to bed if I  were you; Agnes, and forget my worries In sleep. Most young bloods have  sufficient gumption to take care of  themselves, and there's not much fear  but that Fai ley has cut his eye-teeth,  delicate, highly-strung, sensitive, boy?  By Jove! I wouldn't like to be In  your grip, with your whip hand over  me."' '���������  "I thrashed him, my dear sir, and,  what's more, if he crosses my path  again I'll break every bone:: in his  body; I'll thrash him within ah Inch  o*. his life."  "In the name of fortune, what has  he done? Murdered your best friende,  or massacred everyone In the neighborhood?"  "I've no wish to make the cause  public; I'm not at all proud of the  motive which prompted the castiga-  tion, but perhaps Agnes Is not quite  so squeamish. I'll leave the explanation to her," he said, walking to the  door and holding It open.  "You bave no objection, have you,  Felix, to my going to see if Farley ls  there? I'm hunting for him on my  own account.'  "Not in the least" he said, with a  fine show of indifference. "I shall be  In the keeping-room, Hunter; I'll aee  you before you go," and then he slammed the door behind him.  "You would like me to go at once?"  Doctor Hunter asked, watching her  disturbed face aa he led her to the low  chair beside tbe fire.  "Yes,"   she   responded   gratefully;  ; "will you take some brandy with yoar*  j    "No," he said, topping   hla    coat  pocket, "I keep a flask here ln. case  | ot emergency," and going up to the  French window, he   pulled   up    the  blind, unfastened It, ran   down   the  flight of ateps Into the garden, and  round to the shrubbery that way.  He walked ln the direction of. the  summer-house, and ln a streak of  moonlight across the pathway he saw  something glitter, stooped, and picked  up a gold collar- atud; and-then at a  little distance another. He put them  ln his waistcoat pocket and looked  carefully round for a trace of the  owner. Presently bis travelling eyes  halted at a long dark object near the  hedge, and with a smothered exclamation he strode across and knelt  down by Paul Farley's side..  "Hello, my lad!" he said, unscrewing the flask, "can you get up? You've  been lying here pretty nearly half an  hour.". Without staying for an answer, he lifted his head and pound  some brandy between hla lips, and  while he waited for the spirit to take  the desired effect he struck a.match  and lighted a tiny candle In a nickel-  plated holder, and took a good look, at  Paul's ghastly face.  "Upon my word, it's too bad!" he  muttered, drawing the tips 6T his fingers along the white wales that  striped his cheek and neck. "I shall  call Master Felix to account for this."  Paul stirred and opened his eyes,  and the doctor gave him another done  of brandy.  "Can you get on to your feet with  my help, Farley?" he asked. "1 want  you off the ground, my lad; you've lain  here long enough.'  Paul's eyes stared about him in a  dated unnatural way. aa If the place  were strange to him, then suddenly  catching sight of the man beside blm,  be threw up his arms in anticipation  of warding off more blows, and struck  the.doctor full in the chest  "Steady, my men!" he said, with  smiling geniality, "you are mistaking  me for our friend Felix,   eh?    Yw>\  know me, don't you, Farley?"  "YeB," he answered, gasing. at him.  "You are Doctor Hunter. I beg. your  pardon."  .  - "Never mind about begging my  pardon; just scramble' to your feet,  there's a good fellow. Come," he added, winding hia arm around bim.  "Now, then, up you get," and in half  a second he had bim standing and  leaning against the trunk of a horse-  chestnut tree.  "How do you feel now?" be asked,  "giddy?

A Chiropractor knows that all  disease Is incoordination be* .  - tween the various parts of the  body���������lack of harmony between  the brain and the tissue cells.  This Is caused by pressure of  nerves. Ths} Chiropractor by ;a  skilful movement of his hands on  tbe Bplne of the sick person removes the pressure. The nervea  which have been dormant by reason of tba pressure again become  active, and Nature by this means  effects a cure.  ���������,'". The Chiropractor never claims  to cure. All he, does is to remove the pressure and thus open  the door for Nature to do her  wonderful work.  The Chiropractor never worries himself or the Patient by  . seeking to give a name to the  trouble. The trouble is simply  an effect for which there must  be a cause. "Every effect has a  cause." So the Chiropractor  finds the cause, removes it, and  then In the ordinary course of  things the effect should cease. ,  There is a magazine published  ���������-'...

"He was very angry, ln a fearful  rage. I don't know what he has-  threatened us with. I know he feels  aa It I had disgraced him and all our  ancestors for generations back. Wbat  do you think of our behavior, Or. Hunter?"  "I think it was a very natural proceeding on Mr. Farley's part to offer  you kisses, and on yours to   accept {  them, If you are both of  the  same  sentiment and shade of opinion.  Why  should Fells object to a match between young people?" t  "Now, that's a rock I'm afraid you'll  strike against and go to pieces on," j  she said, with a ghost of a smile, moving her chair a trifle closer to his and  putting a hand on hla knee.  "There'a  no question of sentiment, love, engage-j  ment, or marriage between ua; we like j  each other immensely, we are good;  friends and comrades; nothing more, I  and never will be.   Mr. Farley would  toll you tho same If you aaked him."  "Why did you meet him in the sum*  mer-house?" he aaked, smiling. |  "Why,, because fie la tn a fearful  muddle," ahe.aald eagerly.  "A certain'  lady ln the neighborhood says he haa  proposed to her, and he saya he haa.  not, and doesn't want to be bothered)  with any of the women In the plaos.'  Hla chief aim and object ln lite now.  la to get free of her, so he thought be  would tell the tale to me before he  mentioned it to Felix, because he aald,  sometimes a woman's wit la keener  and sharper than a man's."  "Well, and you were ao kind and  sympathetic that he took! you in hla  arms and kissed you, la that it?"  "Tea, he did that," ahe acknowledged, looking down, a little contuaed,  "but IJbadn't helped him much because  Felix arrived before he had commenced hla tragic story."  To her aatohtahed; delight he leaned,  back In hia chair and gave vent to a  spontaneous burst of laughter. "A  "Poor fellow, poor Farley," said the'  doctor, wiping his eyes; "and dear old  Felix didn't see the humorous side of  the situation?"  "No; don't you see, Mr. Farley haa  told Felix ever so many times he did  not mean to marry, and haa talked  against marriage and all that, ao Fella  thought we were deceiving him; that  Mr. Farley waa making secret love to  me, and all the time he did not mean  anything."  "80 there ia absolutely nothing between you young people, except the  ktaalng-���������how do yon account for  that?" he aaked, looking steadily Into  her large truthful eyea.  *I cant account for It," Agnes aald,  meeting the look without flinching,  without, the qplver ot an eyelid. *3  wiah I could; at any rate 111 try. It  waa like thia: Mr. Farley came np  hers after a good dinner, all warm,  comfortable, and happy, and I met him  after a long, cold Journey. Mr feet  were numb and my fingers froien, and  ho took my bande in tils warm opes  and tried to get some circulation Into  tbem. Felix waa close by In tbe stables, and we were both excited hr the  feeling tbat he might come upon ua  at any moment; excited hr a sons������ of  danger, bf a secret lonely meeting at  night wltb the moon shining and the  freah wind blowing through the crackling leaves about ua; and suddenls  turning silly and bold, I aald he grew  better looking every day; and being  impulsive, easily moved, and flattered,  be caught mein hla arms and kissed  me���������and���������; Dr. Hunter, 1 wouldn't  mind taking my oath that he never  meant an Atom ot harm, or that there  waa a single wrong thought In bit  head, any more than if lt bad been  Felix himself. Can you understand���������  do you believe me?"  "I tblnk you have been moat explicit; you have put the matter quite  clearly: and aptly, Mlas Agnes, and I  have no hesitation whatever in believing and accepting your explanation."  ''Felix wouldn't/' she said, the tears  coming Into her eyea.  "I daresay not, but there'a a whole  world of difference between ua. Felix la your brother, and I, Agnes, your  ���������lover!"  "Then you don't mind about Mr.  Farley?"  "Not a bit," be said, taking the little  nervous hand fluttering on hla knee  Into a warm, safe, substantial clasp; j  "he's leti your heart for me to try and  win, and tbe rest, my dear, don't  count." I  "You are very kind," she said, nervously, trying to laugh. !  "Am 1?" be asked pleasantly.    "1  wonder whether you'll be kind to me,  and, ln spite of my being an old fogey,  try to like me?" I  "I do like you," she sala wiih unmistakable earnestness. I  "Enough to marry me?" he whisper* I  ed, bending towards her,  his    heart  beating like a girl's. I  "Yes, quite," she aald, sliding to her  knees beside him.   "I would like to  marry you.   I am almost sure that lj  love you." I  He opened his arms, and she crept;  close to him and laid her face against j  bia neck.                                               I  "I am old enough to be your father," >  he said, rubbing his chin on her soft;  "All the better," she said, laughing.  "I want somebody old enough to take  proper care of me; Felix said I could- j  n't take care of myself." j  "Felix hasn't been very polite of  late." |  "Yes, he has. until this evening.   1  never saw him so enraged before, and;  the extraordinary part is, he professed  and seemed to be so attached to Mr. j  Farley."  "So he is, dariing. Nothing much  escapes the professional eye, and I  know he is mad, simply mad on Farley  He wouldn't have cut up rough likej  this lf the affection had not been;  deeply rooted and his heart very much  engaged. You Bee, Agnes, If Felix  looks upon this affair in the light you  say he does, it must have been a blow  to him to discover that the two people  he loves best ln the world were conspiring together to deceive him. 1  know our Felix; I know his heart and  conscience are as tender as a woman's, but just now be feels like a  man who has been wounded ln the.  house of his friends." !  . "Yes, and the worst ot it ls hell  persist in thinking ao," she said  wearily. j  "No. he won't." he aald, cbeerfaUv '  "I'll eee him before I go, and put matters as plain and as straight as I can.  By the way, A^nfes, what do you think  he will say to this May and December,  engagement?"      '  "I won't marry you if I hear you say  again you are old, or make disrespectful allusions to your age," she said,  with a charming pout. "It's too ab-i  surd; you look younger than Felix.  You looked fresh and rosy, and quite!  boyish when you came In to-night^ and  Felix looked old and crc6S and horrid."  "So that's how you flattered Far-,  ley?" he asked, looking askant at her.j  "Of course I may take a leaf out ,of;  his book and reward you for the deli- i  cate compliment?" I  "Oh, no," she said, laughing and col*  orlng; "that's different; I���������he Is only  a silly-boy, Dr. Hunter"  "My name is Jack/' he said gravely; "but perhaps you didn't know,"  and bending suddenly he kissed her  on tbe lips.  She blushed scarlet and looked so  abashed that he felt almost Inclined!  to apologise. But Instead he buttoned  hla coat and fidgetted round the room  until she had In some degree, recovered  from her bashful surprise.  "Agnes," he said, putting hla arm  around her. "have you any choice  about the ring?"  J'Not any, 'she said, looking Into the  flre; "I shall be satisfied with whatever you choose."  "Have you any-, choice 'about the  courting; would you rather not be  kissed?"  ; She looked up Into his love-lit eyes,  and saw tdere the devotion of bia  heart in all its depth and grandeur.  The effect was as a lightning touch;  she ' saw heaven in a glance. The  sweet Idolatry enslaved her, and raising her arms swiftly ahe clasped them  around his neck, draw hia head down  to hers, and kissed him.  "That's my answer," she whispered,  glad smiles and truant tears chasing,  each other in her eyea.   "I love you,  yon understand, Jack; I love you."  He saw the love In ita budding  beauty; he felt the magic of its smile;  his heart shouted with Joyous victory,  and he breathed an Inward thanksgiving for his happy, hallowed lot, aa  he went softly out from the dim oK  parlor and sought J'ellx ln the keeping-room.  The Squire waa seated in a roomy  leather chair, his feet on the steel rim  of the stove, his pipe ln hla mouth,  reading.  "I expect you thought I was gone."  he aald. addreesing the back of Felix's  head, "but I've been waiting for my  trap to come back; I sent Farley horns  In tt.."  There waa no answer. Doctor Htn>  ter thought the book muat be a very  interesting and engrossing one, as  Felix, waa not partu-nlarly fond ol  reading any printed matter, save ths  dally organs of newa; consequently  . the idea occurred to him that Fella  might possibly have caught up tht  book at random on hearing hie ap  proach to avoid discussing a disagree  able topic.  "Look bere, Felix," be aald. golni  around the chair and laying a not very  gentle-hand on his shoulder, "Just paj  attention to me for a minute. I wanl  to talk to you about Farley. Hard lea  sons and rough discipline are all very  well In theory, but you bad no right  no business, to thrash that boy at  you have. There waa nd rhyme oi  reaado In it."  . "Indeed!" be said, closing tbe book  "who says so?"  "I do. I say so. What hiB back and  shoulders are like, I don't profess tc  know, but the parts exposed, one sid������  of his neck, one cheek, and hand, art  seamed with livid wales almost as big  as my little finger; they stand up ilk*  whipcord.

Felix took the pipe from bis mouth  pitched the book on the table, ant?  rose.  "I don't intend to be bullied and in  suited in my own house, Hunter," he  said, towering on tbe hearthrug, "sc  you will desist or go."  "I don't mean to quarrel witb you.

What did yor  do it for?" he asked, as he saw Fei  wince.  "To teach him to leave a respectable  woman alone."  "You need not have troubled to dc  that, my dear boy; you might have  left that job to me. I am the right person to chastise the lad if he requirei  it."  "How do you make that out?" Feli>  asked, his nostrils swelling. "1 hac  my sister's interests to protect."  "And I my future wife's Interests.'  "Since when have ydu become en  gaged to Agnes?"  "Since I found Farley. You don'i  object, Felix?"  "Has Agnes given you the historj  of this unpleasant fracas?"  "Every detail; I am thoroughly con  veraant witb the facts,, both great and  small."  "Apparently you don't see any ban.  in the escapade?"  "Not I, Felix, it'B too paltry," he  said earnestly. "The burdens of lir<  are neither few nor light. There art  real ills enough without trying to bre\i  some for ourselves out of passing  trivialities. I come in contact wltfc  too much sorrow and trouble to ear*  to make much of the petty plagues o;  life.

Oui  journey through life has to be made  whether it be fair weather or foul, anc  a wise traveller will take courage  from his many comforts, and carry his  sunshine with him."  "Of course," Felix said, knocking the  ashes from his pipe and refilling it  "your engagement to Agnes alters the  complexion of affairs, and quashes an;  scurrilous chatter. I have nothing  further to say on the subject, except  to offer you my congratulations."  "Thank you," he said quietly.

A mere tremor    of immigration from.  Asiatic countries into Canada would very soon  swallow up the .-character and traits of the people  of British Columbia, and sooner or later of the  whole of Canada."  Speaking of the industrial side, li������_said:  " Another side of this question, which is very  important, is the industrial side.   I wish to point  out these facts in order to prove .my statement  that we must be careful of Asiatic immigration  from an%indust rial standpoint.   When 1 first went  to llritisli Columbia twenty years ago, our sawmills were manned almost entirely by* white men.  About fifteen years ago the mill owners com-  .menced to engage Chinese in connection with that  work.   -They used  the Chinese in the common  work, such as piling lumber in the yards and so  on.   With what result?   Very soon they found  that the supply of labor for more skilled classes  of work was becoming less.   Why? . Because the  young fellows, who originally had been drafted  from the families of the white men who piled the  lumber, and who usually went in to attend some  machine in the sawmill, were not there.   They  had been replaced by the single Chinese outside.  This went on until they found they had to put  the Chinese onto the planers, the strippers and the  finer machines, with the result that very soon they  found the supply of white labor for these machines becoming depleted.   They then had to train  the Chinese to do the skilled work, until in the  last few years our mills in British Columbia are  manned almost entirely by Chinese, and later on  by Japanese as well.   What I want to emphasize  is this, that by cutting off this man with his family  who was doing the common work, you cut off  the supply of labor for the finer jobs, because  these men in the mills are trained-from one position to the other.   It is not very high class labor,  but it is labor which requires a certain amount of  training.   Some people say. that you cannot do  without Chinese, as you must have domestic serv-  aot8.'- The supply of white domestic servants has  been cut off. I know the ck "i tic servant problem has become acute here as well as in British  Columbia. This is one thing that contributes to  the scarcity. -The daughters of these white men  were the girls who supplied our homes with domestic servants. 'You have not got them now,  simply^ because the lowest class of work in one  particular industry has been supplied by Chinese,  and later on by Japanese. A few years ago, we  had nine or ten thousand white fishermen on our  coasts. To-day we have only about 500. The  rest are Chinese or Japanese, who work in our  canneries. The canneries will tell you that they  cannot get white men to work for them: On the  eastern coast, those who go to cure the fish are  largely the members of the families of the fishermen. If you have single men, Chinese or Japanese, manyxof whom come to British Columbia for  the fishing season, doing the fishing, you have cut  off the white fishermen with their families, and  you have also cut off the supply of labor for the.  cannery to cure the fish, with the natural result  that they have to secure Chinese for the canneries.  By the policy of admitting in years gone by  a large number of Asiatics, we have cut off the  lower class of labor, the common laborer, with the  result that the suply of white labor has-been cut  off in many other lines, forcing employers to hire  Chinese and Japanese and now the Hindu for  those various, lines of work. I contend that the  problem that has been given to this Government  by the policy of the late Government is one which  it will take^ many years to solve. It is impossible  to get a white man to go in and work with a kit'  of Chinese. He will not do it, because the. sentiment, style of living and every other element that  go to maks up the common everyday life are so  entirely different that no white man will engage  in competition with-a Chinaman. The result is  that you hav������i this friction n Brtish Columbia, particularly accentuated in that province in the industrial line, against the Asiatics."

He will hear, save  and comfort yon at once on your bowing to His  ���������"If-      ' -^������  Hear what Napoleon says of Jesus: "I know  men, and 1 tell you that Jesus is no ordinary man.  The religion of Christ is a mystery which subsists by its own. force, and proceeds from a mind  whicjh is not a human mind. We find in it a  ���������larked individuality, which originated a train  of words an dactions unknown before. Jesus is  not a philosopher, for His proofs are miracles,  and from the first the disciples adored Him*  "Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and myself  founded empires; but on what foundation did we  rest the creatures of bur genius? UPON FOftCE:  But Jesus Christ founded an empire on JJOVJ3;  and at this hour millions of men would die for  ffim.

What an abyss between my. deep misery and the ETERNAL KINGDOM OF .CHRIST, which is proclaimed, loved,  adored, and is still existing over the whole  earth."  From then till now that Jesus has expanded  His Kingdom of Love .immeasurably beyond the  confines of the lands reached by the Gospel in  the days of Napoleon. What he said then is true  now to a more telling extent and with a wider  significance.   Reader, are you in His Kingdom,  or on the outside looking on as a spectatorf  His words and come to Him for Life.  Try  A VWtfT INTERESTING DEBATE.  Two weeks jago the following proposition was  debated in the L. O. L., by the following four  young Orangemen: W. *J. McClintock, C. T. Weir,  Hugh Morrow and Robert Kenmure. The proposition debated is: "Are Cliques and Office-seekers  helpful to any   organisation   or   community!"  JThis is in effect the purport of the subject argued  pro and eon.  The first two named gentlemen argued against  the usefulness of cliques and office-seekers, while  the, other two favored and tried to show that  such people in an organization or in a community were and are of the Wgh.est\value;,:;-.'y'''y-:.-'-;'''.^-  .The decision of the Lodge favored the argu--  ments used to show that Cliquers and Office-grabbers are a curse, a sort of common monstrosity,  a wart, a scab, a canker, a mould, and represent  the debasing element of greed, selfishness, the  love of power, and self-worship.  The young men who had the other-side, and argued for the usefulness of the above warts and  society-cankers, though they had a very difficult  proposition, advanced a lot of clever arguments  and nearly proved that "black is white." However, by the skill and ability of their opponents  the victory wes had against such riff-raff as the  Cliquer and Place-grabber. .   7 _  The jocular side of the debate and the good-  natured banter added much to the entertainment  and the educational feature thereof.
