Lett  Pastor of Grandview Methodist Church.  NOTES FROM OHAWA  /  By Arthur R. Ford-  ^-Ottawa.^-Ref using' to fix any date when they  would agree to the passing of the naval bill and  preparing to continue obstruction, the Liberals  * drove tiie government this week'to put the new  closure rules into force. That they were-Tlrafted  with carcejind with- exactness was evident by the  way they worked. In less than a week the bill  will be through the house and read*/ for the senate. What the senate will do with it is a question tfiat no one at Ottawa is able to answer. The-  Libefals in the upper chamber have had several  caucuses and many conferences, and -it is said  they are still undecided. If they listen to the  Liberal leaders in the lower house they will kill  the measure, but there are many of them who are  opposed to taking such'drastic action, realizing  that an unrepresentative body should not take  the responsibility of defeating such an important  government measure without some better excuse  th������n party malice..  The closing session of the debate were marked  by a savage attack on Commandant Roper, a distinguished British naval officer who was .loaned to  the Canadian Government by the British Adflrir-  'alty to carry out the Laurier naval scheme. lie  is now in charge of a torpedo squadron off the  ���������coast of Scotland. Commandant Roper in 1911  became very impatient over the dilatory tactics  of the Liberals. His recommendations were negative. Finally he put in writing his views on the  whole Laurier proposals, pointing out their weakness and particularly emphasising the fact that  before the ships which the Laurier Government  proposed to' build could be constructed they  WOuld be obsolescent. This Was shortly before  the elections of11911.      ���������  Hon. J. D. Hazen read this memorandum in the  house and it roused the ire, of the Liberals. Hob.  Rodolphe Lemieux made a most violent attack On  Commandant Roper. He declared that the re.  port was concocted, that it had been written after  the_ elections and dated back, that it had been  sneaked in the department and that Commandant  Roper had acted as he did in order to secure an  increase in salary. Mr. Hazen made a vigorous  defence of the Britishr tar, explaining the facts of  the case and emphatically denied that the memorandum was concocted. He had written the report with a view to getting the Liberals; if they  elected to adopt a more vigorous policy, and to  show the Conservatives if they were returned, the  . true state of .affairs. Admiral Kingsmill refused  to forward the memorandum, and later he received it through officials of the department. The  attack has been greatly resented at Ottawa and  where.Commandant Roper is known, and even  the Liberal organ at the capital, the Ottawa Free  ~ Press, has repulsed the opposition for their attack  on Roper. "  When the work of the present session comes,  to be passed under review, in a few weeks from  now, the postmaster-general, Hon. L. P. Pelletier,  will have good reason t<J feel proud of his contri;  butions to the legislation that will have been put  upon the statute books. Three big measures,  two of whieh have already been explained before  the House, and the third of which is to come before long, will bear the name of the postmaster-  general. These are, first, the great improvement  effected in the mail service between this country and Great Britain, a tri-weekly service taking  the place of the former weekly service; second,  the arrangement announced in the house this  week providing for a wireless cable service between" Canada and Great Britain that\ will cut  rates from one-third to two-thirds and give a  /vastly superior service; third, the measure that  has been announced but not yet brought before  parliament for a parcels post system.  It has long been recognized'rhet nothing binds  the various parts of the world together so much  as rapid., communication. When America was a  month's sail from Britain it was a foreign country. Today, when less than a week makes the  journey, it has lost that foreign character and  has been linked up with the Motherland as never  With this number I, The Western Call, make my fifth annual bow to  the publico Five years ago I commenced my career as modestly as possible and was /commissioned by my proprietor and publisher, *rTfte Ter-  minal City Priss, Limited.**     ' '_��������� N , ,  Under this management I have been welcomed to thousands of homes  and business houses until my circulation is second to no weekly in Vancouver. i.Vs an advertising medium my many friends embolden me to claim first  place.

THE WESTERN CALL.  REV. FRANCIS GRAHAM LEH  Pastor of Grandview Methodist Church.  Among the churches of Vancouver none are better served than the Grandview Methodist  Church, at the corner of Victoria Drive and Venables Street. The attendants are treated to two  tasty , fresh, wholesome meals each Sunday by tbe pastor, Rev. Francis Graham Lett, who was  invited to this pulpit one year ago by the congregation upon the recommendation of some of its  officials'who had enjoyed his able teachings in Ontario for years. Mr, Lett was born in Renfrew  County, Ont., his. parents being Ralph and Sarah Lett, pioneer farmers of the Upper Ottawa Valley.  His education commenced in the public schools and continued up through the grammar  ^Schools and college. He was a public school teacher for eight years in* His home county, then  ���������' principal of the Pembroke schools. Hie theological education began in 1878 and formally ended  in Victoria College in 1885, but practically continues today, for Rev. Mr. Lett is a close and constant student, as is clearly demonstrated by his vigorous, up-to-date sermons. As a member of  the Montreal Conference he was popular and highly honored, having filled many good pulpits^of  which McLeod Street Church, Ottawa, was one. vIn the Capital City he was a recognized leader  in religious circles and moral reform. To his hands were entrusted great responsibilities. In  1895^6 he was secretary.of his conference; member of the Stationing Committee for sixteen years  up to 1912; a prominent member of the nook Room Committee of the General Conference, and  delegate to the General Conference for fourteen years. While padtor in Pembr oke he was  elected President of-the ^Montreal Conference. v  In 1885 Mr. Lett was united in marriage with Miss A. J. Sherwood, daughter of the late Wm.  Sherwood, barrister of Brockville, Ont. Mrs. Lett, with her four daughters and three sons are  greatly endeared to the congregation where they have lived and labored for ten months.  ���������y An assurance that Mr. Lett is to be transferred to the British Columbia Conference this week  is gratifying to his manyfriencbrand admirers. As a pastor, preacher, mixer with the people  and a manly man, Mr. Lett has few equals. The City and .Conference''willfind in: hiittt a valuable  -addition to its working force. /Y  .>**KCSi������*  NOTE.--No One w>ll be more surprised than Mr. Lett upon the appearance of this little sketch.  The photo.js not his latest, but we had to filch it and the meagre facts from his friends without  his knowledge. '  would have been possible otherwise. The same  principle holds true in an even greater degree  between th component parts of the British Empire today and in providing better mail and  cable services the postmaster-general jhas given  real help to the Imperial movement.  It is no trifling benefit that has been brought by  the two measures already introduced. To change  a weekly mail service to a tri-weekly service is a  most notable advance. In the same way, to cut  cable rates as has been done by the arrangement  entered into with the Universal Radio Telegraphy  Syndicate is something of which the government  may well be proud, and for which the Canadian  people will hardly lack gratitude. There remains  to be introduced the measure that will supplement these by providing for the whole of the Dominion an up-to-date system of parcels post.  The improved mail service has already com-  menced,_the arrangement dating from the first of  May. The government's contract is with four  different companies who provide in all twelve  steamers, and these twelve steamers include some  of the finest vessels coming to Canadian ports.  In the winter there will be a special vessel kept  in reserve so that it can take the place of any  one of the others, and so prevent any delay of  mails due to mishap or delay to the regular mail  carriers. . -        -   '  A point in this connection which caused some  misunderstanding already is in connection with  mails via New York. In the past a large portion  of the Canadian mail has gone via New York, the  larger number of mail steamers leaving that port  making closer connection possible. The new  Canadian arrangement does not prevent mail still  being sent via New York if it is so addressed.  There have been many enquiries on this point at  the postoffice department.  It is a natural complement to an improved mail  service that there should also be a better cable  service. The contract into which the government  is realy a ,!o,aoBsoneG,chrd nifw hrd mfw mfmf  has entered is really a most striking bargain, and  is so viewed in parliament. Members of the  House of Commons who heard Hon. Mr. Pelletier  detail the contract on Tuesday fully expected  that there would be a' subsidy as past records in  the matter of public utilities have invariably  called for a cash payment. It was, therefore, a  very pleasant surprise when the postmaster-general stated that Canada would have to pay nothing for the improvement that was coming. This  was justification for the action of the government  deciding to give wireless a fair trial rather than  enter at once upon a scheme of state-owned cables,  costly and cumbersome, and likely to be supplanted entirely in the next few years by the  very rapid progress that wireless is making. For  there can be no doubt that the future telegraph  system will be wireless.       *  This is the third cut in cable rates that the  present government Jias'secured since it came into  office, but this third one is so substantial that it  utterly eclipses all that has gone before. To  reduce the cost of code messages by one-third  means a tremendous saving, to business men in  Canada, while the cut of two-thirds on plain lan-  (Continued on.

What hallowed associations and  imperishable memories cluster around that sacred  name. MOTHER! There's music in it more  thrilling than angel song and more potential than  the forces that bind the myriad parts of the  boundless universe in one. These may fail, but  mother's name and love endure forever. Her  life and power elevate earth to heaven and swing  the gates ajar through Whieh countless multitudes pass to praise their mother's God throughout eternity.  How fitting that there should be a Mother's  Day, distinguished from alL other days in the  year. Last Sunday was observed as Mother's  Day in Canada and the United States.. The white  carnation worn symbolized her purity and fragrant beauty. Mother, whether in heaven or earth  is our best friend and our Mother forever. All  honor to her name!

The endearing  idea about it is the embedded LUMINOUS CROSS, which  will shine all night long*<6r 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 anyone  ���������is enabled to be convinced of its real nautre. It is indeed  an article which is held in high esteem by any Christian  family or person. The Shining Cross is made of a stone,  which is found only near Jerusalem, and of which already  the Bible speaks of as the: LUMINOUS STONE in picturing  Solomon's temple.  Prices are: 15 centa each, 2:for 25c, 5 for 50c, and 12  for $1.00.  A. Netkow, 832 Yoage St., Taronto, Ont., Sola Agent  for Canada and U.

They are also trained to ring an alarm  bell, which fs placed in a conspicuous place, which not only alarms the  household, but foils the nefarlouB plot  of the burglar.

By securing this condition the  sanitariums and insane asylums''will  be robbed of their victims and we  predict that the world will soon be  peopled with a nerveless race.

I'm glad I've seen you, though, because mother was going to write to  you to-morrow to ask you to come up  to the.farm and see her." I  "   "Going to write to me, was   she?  What does she want to see me for?" {  be asked, wondering why Farley did  not throw a side light on to such a  contingency as this. j  "Well, I'm not exactly s'posed to  know." the said, laughing; "but she've  gone and took a fancy into ber head  that you're a bit sweejt en our JSfcnie,'  and accordingly she'd like to know the  rights of the matter." ������������������'j  "Hum!" he said, amused, "walk with ���������  me to the 'Popinjay' and tell me about I  If.

"1 am afraid that is'scarcely sufficient cause to draw an effect, an Inference from.

Now that I have  spoken to you will you return home  and 'go on about me', too?"  i She looked slyly up at him sideways,  and turning at the- moment, he caught  the cunning look before she oould  lower her eyes..  t   "No," she said with a bashful at  tempt;   "I'm   bespoke,   leastways,   1  could keep company with him lf 1  ohose."  !

The small ruse  ser\ed  his purpose,  the  squiie gave  an Impatient cough, And Hare-following the sound knocked at the sitting-  room door uiul entered,.smiling.  1     "What a time you have" been," Fe-  I Ux said;  "I began to think you must  ! have gone heme with Mrs. Wycherly."  [     "No," he replied, carelessly, "I met  and asked the way here of a decent-  looking young woman who has a sister named Jennie, a father a farmer,  and a fool of a mother who was evidently- bent on making things hot for  ! poor Mr. Farley.   Who Is she?".  "Mary Ash wood; there are three  girls. Jennie is the youngest and  prettiest."   7-  "And Robert Sims, do you know  him?" '     ; v-"���������;7..V  "Nothing out of .the common, nothing but whaVs remarkably stale.

Are  you going on with it, or are you going  te throw it up? What are you going  to do?"  "I am going to marry her to-morrow  learning at eight o'clock sharp," he  sara, (..vesting himself of his cumbersome Inverness,' and waving his hat  above his bead he flung it up to the  celling and caught It again deftly.  "Are you mad?" Felix asked, dropping limply into the nearest chair.  "As mad as a hatter; stark, staring,  raving mad with the thrill of a beauty  sufficient to fascinate a "hundred empires."  "I cannot allow lt, Hare," he said,  gravely. "I am responsible to Graham  For your well-being and safety; I am  responsible all round.' I will not allow It; you-must give up the insane  idea, Hare."  . 1*1, don't recognlx_____iLJes_tojt_ilbll-  "take my advice, Uke a sensible fellow, and give lt up."  I "For the sake of argument. Mr.  Fleming, let us say I do give it un:  I go back to London to-night and Mr.  Farley returns to Weyberne, either by  the mall to-night or to-morrow. The  widow has the license, the ring, tbe  man to execute hw kidnapping instructions, and a closed carriage to  $8it here, there, and anywhere. What  do you suppose Mr. Farley's life would  be worth lf he did not consent to the  marriage?"  '   A scarlet stain dyed  the  squire's  face.  "And what do you think your, life  will be wortli when Rowena Wycber.y  discovers tbe fraud r*    .  "Aa much as lt is now. Tf sbe touches me the law will lay its heavy finger on ber and.Irretrievably stop her  career; whereas, under harmless reasonable conditions, she ls at liberty  to reject the devotion and amends ������f  an honorable man and return to Weyberne and prosecute -her pursuit of  Mr. Farley."  "Unless the woman is demented the  whole story ls a monstrous outrageous  absurdity," Felix said. "I made a mistake, I perceive, an idiotic blunder,  when I hit upon this scheme, but my  original idea was to have a detective  in Farley's place for a week or more  as a decoy,-In order to fathom what  her designs and intentions really wer?.  If she- did not go to the lengths I  credited her witb. I anticipated the  man eventually handing her over to  tbe proper authorities, who ^ would  either punish her. or Inquire into the  state ot her mind."  "Excuse, me, Mr. Fleming, but yoa  said this morning you" considered her  to be perfectly sane." ���������  "I know I did. Up to the present I  have considered. her a daring, unscrupulous, heartless woman, but upon  mv soul. Hare, recent revelations  point to slmetblng more. 1 am milch  more alarmed for Farley's safety than  1 was ten minutes ago. and I should  also be very Borry for you voluntarily,  out of sheer reckless fool-hardiness,  to court the spite and fury of a baffled maniac."  "Faugh! It's not so bad as that,  Mr. Fleming. I'll grant you she is mad  so far as Mr. Farley Is concerned, but  tbere the madness ends. A woman in  love, a beautiful, high-spirited, bold,  dashing woman, a true Eve, will use  almost any means-to gain her point,  and think all is fair i������ love and war.  Your anxiety regarding Mr. Farley  has Warped your better judgment, sir."  "You own she Is mad On my friend,  then how, in heaven's name, do yob  puYaose turning this torrent of passion  from him to yourself? Don't try to  touch things that are too high for you,  Hare.'"  He* laughed, kicked the burning log  with his boot, and lit a cigar.  "I don't know how to turn the  course of an undammed mill stream,"  he said, throwing away the match, and  smiling after it; "but If I possess the'  sense, the strength, and the nerve, I  don't see why I shouldn't try."  "Nor I, if you are bent ou tempting  Providence, and your life is of no  value to you. I can't understand a  man like you wishing to al'y jourse'f  with a woman of the Wychc.ly t.vpe.  Handsome is as handsome does;, an  angel .shape may be'Jenaiited by  fiends, and certainly, In her case'?1 a  beautiful face covers a depraved, if  not a diseased mind. Now let us elect  to be sensible, Hare. Go back to town  like the good fellow you are, and send'  me down a'practical, man who.will  know how to grapple with the peculiar  circumstances, and upon whose acumen 1 can rely to advise me. Rowena  Wycherly must not be allowed to  prosecute or drive Mr. Farley from  Weyberne., If she Js. wicked she must  be punlBhed; if insane, she must be  taken proper care of; and whatever  means are employed to ensure Mr.  Farley's peace and safety, It's essential they should be quiet, unobtrusive,  and devoid of scandal."  Austin Hare crossed the hearthrug  and laid his band on tbe squire's  Bboulder. ��������� 7 - ..  "Mr. Fleming," he said, in the same  even-tempered, equable tone he had  used throughout the discussion, "1  could deceive you easily; I could promise to be guided by you and return  to town to-morrow; I could promise  anything you might choose to put forward and still.keep my appointment  at Weyberne Church to-morrowi but  my mode of procedure is more llk������  that of a bold, bad, don't-care boy  chasing a butterfly. I.mean to have  the beautiful, gauxy, downy thing, but  I'll put-sue it openly; I don't care  which way you look, whether I am in  your line of vision or not; whether ]  catch it fields ahead of you, or right  down under your very nose. Tou tell  me that this marvellously fashioned  woman Is wanton, shameless, and no  doubt It's an unmitigated active fact;  still, no.one Is wholly bad, sb*; the  devil himself is hardly so black at  some would havo him painted. Surely such a cascade of beauty must be  sweet and pure at Its source, though  it has and may run through narrow,  muddy channels. I have a fancy, Mr.  Fleming, that with careful tenderness  under a gracious Providence I shall  delve down to the silver ripple of that  nnra source." -       ���������   ���������.   .-���������  (Continued on Page 7)  TAXpOVVS** XA-sTl) BZSTS.XCS  '   Dlfjtrlfit of Coast, Banff* 8  TAKE notice that George Hunt of  Vancouver, B, C. occupation janitor,  ii. tends t> apply for permission to pur-  clia^t the following dewribert lands.

Tljjs is caused by pressure of  nerves.   The Chiropractor by a  skilful movement of his hands on  t&e spine of the sick person re*  moves the pressure. The nerves  .  whiclr have been dormant.by reason of the pressure again become  active, and Nature by tbis me^ns  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 tha 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 ihe ordinary course of  things the effect should cease.  There is a<maga*-lne-publi8hed  in Toronto, named "The Canadian Chiropractor." 7*If you  would like" a copy, ask for one  ' at the" addres below, lt is free  for the asking, and will tell you ~  ~   things worth knowing.

TYPHOON BRINGS DEATH  Fifty-Egiht Killed in Storm in Philippines.  j  Manila.���������The worst typhoon experienced in eight years struck the islands last Sunday, causing many  deaths and wrecking several small  steamers' and numerous lighter caft.  The known fatalities at sea total 58,  but the total death list , from the  storm is swelling with incoming reports.    ;  ,       ���������  Friday, May 16.U918  NOTES FROM OTTAWA  (Continued from Page I)  gnage messages puts a similar large amount back  into the pockets of citizens generally. Added to  this is the cut that is made on press rates, the  very substantial advantage of whieh will be a  still greater amount of British and foreign news  cabled direct to this country instead of having  to filter its way through American channels.  The postmaster-general has still another boon  to present to the people of Canada in the shape  of a parcels post system. The agitation for this,  begun years ago, has taken more definite shape  since the United States Government at the beginning of this year instituted its great system of  parcels post, based upon the zone system. The  postmaster-general has kept careful watch of the  working out of the American system and very  properly deemed it wise to wait a few months before introducing his ideas in Canada. Notice of  the bill whieh will establish the parcels post system has already been given and it is expected that  at ������r very early date rtow it .will be introduced in  the House. In all probability it will follow the  United States system in respect of zones, though  making important changes in other particulars  in order to bring it to the highest state of efficiency to meet Canadian needs.

W. T. White  made some references to the stringent financial  conditions which existed during the year, and  predicted that improved conditions would prevail before many months had elapsed.  "Abroad," said Mr. White, the minister of fin-,  ance, in introducing the budget to the House of  Commons at Ottawa, "the financial outlook has  been dark during the year. This condition had |  been due in the first place to a measure of industrial depression, and had later been traceable to  the Balkan war."  Most wonderful is the growth of British power  and territory. Whilst the other nations are looking longingly around for enlarged territories, and  vainly look, the British Empire is expanding almost daily.  Our race has a wonderful genius for ruling  alien peoples and making them happy under one  rule. Moreover it is under our sway that they  make a real- and permanent progress.  Sir Frederick Lugard met a large assembly ot*  Nigerian chiefs at Kano on January 1st, 1913.  Sixty-three Emirs and Chiefs, representing sixty-  eight tribes, attended this unique gathering. In  the military review, bands of almost nude pagans  danced past, half frezied with excitement and delight. That these men should have left their  fastnesses and come unarmed to join in a Fulani  gathering without fear, could not fail to arrest  the attention and strike the imagination. Such  a thing was not possible, or even conceivable a  fewyyears ago. The leading chiefs assured the  British Governor that everything was satisfactory, prosperous and peaceful. ,  He impressed upon them the importance of  training men of the country to take their place  as clerks and artisans iii Government employ instead of importing aliens from Sierra Leone. He  was pleased by the keen interest manifested by  the most progressive Emirs regarding, agriculture and surveying and the keeping of stud farms  and ostriches. Such an assembly as this has  never taken place before in the recorded history  of the country, and its significance is great.  The world wonders and gazes on in admiration  at the manner in whieh Britain is binding the  heathen to her chariot wheels. Tbe bonds are  Jove, justice and the higher ideals of an exalted  humanity.  CONCERT  ST. PAUL'S PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH  Cor. Uth Ave. and Burns St.  Wednesday, May 21st  At 8 p. m.

Because he bj������ made the first real effort to come  to the aid of the motherland in naval defence  Beeause he stands for honesty and integrity in  administrfttion, and for cleanness in public affairs.  Because he believes in the square deal to all  classes of the community, irrespective of considerations of race and religion.  Because he has carried out more pledges in the,  few months he has been in power than Laurier.  did in the fifteen years in Which he occupied the  position of Prime Minister of Canada.   s  Because lieis riot always talking of Canadian  "autonomy "as if it were something to be guarded against the risk of being kidnapped.  Because he is a Canadian first, last and all the  time, and believes that this great Dominion ean  best work out her destiny as a free nation within the Empire and not as an "adjunct" of the;  United States. ���������  Because he is British to the core, and does not  boast that if he had been on the'banks of the Saskatchewan he would have shouldered his musket.  Because he never prophesied the day when Canada would be independent and drop from the parent tree like ripe fruit.  Because he believes in British connection and  not Separation.  Because the grand old T^nion Jack is good  enough for him.  Because he believes in helping Britannia to  rule the waves;  Because he believes inactions not oratory. \  Finally, the people" trust Borden because Bbr-"  den trusts the people.  ABTWICJAL -S1A1JTY.  Vancouver is afflicted with a craze for 'artificial beauty" than which few things are less  pleasing. Face beauty that consists of paint and  powder is a shallow cheat and an offense to good  taste. The painted beauty is a cheap advertisement of homliness, a silly attempt to attract attention and arouse admiration; a fruitless effort  to compete^with the true natural beauty to whom  health, cleanliness, high purpose and strong mentality impart a rich adornment.  All arguments employed to sell face dope are  false and misleading. Paint lifeless buildings and  human corpses if you wish, but let the living  tree or flower or human face shine in their own  lovliness. Paint hides and impairs true living  beauty. Poor, senseless victims of a hurtful  fashion you will yet regret your shallow folly.
