 A. K. Ford.)  on. W. T. White,  down in the house  statement, which is  thii|PHBfi|i||jHP^of the business situation of'  **���������' pKpBPSIW-������ budget from the standpoint of  buataje^pfiffitions show that the prosperity of  the ntijfiiiy is still unabated, trade is ever growing at an enormous rate, while revenues are more  buoyant than ever. The total revenue for the  past year was $168,250,000. The ordinary expenditure was $113,230,000, leaving a surplus over  [ordinary expenditure of $55,000,000, easily the  largest in Canada's history. The capital expenditure, all of which has come out of current revenues, was $38,000,000, so that Canada was ahead  on its books by $23,000,000 odd, which is to be  applied to the national debt.  [v Two loans during the past year were paid out  of the revenues and one comes due this fall, which  ' it is the intention of the finance minister to meet  when it matures. This loan is one of $1,700,000,  being a portion of the four per cent, loan guarantee by the Imperial Government, and issued in  1878*. This matures October 1st of current year.  Outside of this loan, only one more matures until 1930, so that in this respect Canada ia  in a splendid position. Mr. White does not anticipate having to go to the London market during  this coming year.  Mr. White reviewed the trade situation and  analysed the figures of trade and commerce during the past year. The growth ~of Canadian  trade at the present tinje is astounding. Since  1908 Canadian trade has increased by nearly four,  million dollars. The imports' have peculiarly  grown. In 1908 the imports were $370,786,525,.  ������nd last year they were $691,943,515. This is an  Increase of some three hundred and twenty millions in five years.   Last year the imports were  I. $559,320,544, an increase in one year alone of  Otoe hundred and thirty-two millions. The exports have been growing also, but not at the same  Hremendous'r rate. In 190JS the total trade was  $280,006,606. By 1912 this had only .increased  thirty-five millions.   The increase this past year  \ was the largest on record, and the total for  1912-13 was $393,232,057. The percent*%r'bf the  imports of the aggregate trade has been steadily  rising. Tn 1908 the percentage was 56.97, and last  year the percentage was 63.76. ^  -Most of the balance-*!- trade-against Caned*'  ���������arises from the tremendous imports from the  United States.   The total trade with the United  \ States had doubled in the past six years. The  imports have grown from $204,648,885 in 1908 to  $435,763,343 in 1913. The exports have grown  from a Uttle under one hundred thousand in 1908  to $150;000;000 in 1913. The imports from the  United States during the past year alone increased,  over one hundred) million dollars. The United  Kingdom is still our best market, as our exports  to the motherland last year 'totalled $177,982,002,,  an increase during the year of $26,000,000. Our  imports feoik the - United Kingdom -totalled  $138,653,000. /  According to theorists who believe that the  imports and exports of a country should exactly  balance, Canada is going to call to the bpw-wows.  Mr* 7: Whitedid notjput much* stocky jn such  theories. Ou the cowary, he took theTvieIw that  the apparent adverse balance of trade is due to  causes making for the development of the country  and need not be tbe occasion of any alarm. The  budget which Mr. White announced this week was  a budget of tariff reductions, all to the advantage  of the consumer and the farmer. There have been  substantial reductions in raw sugar, which have  already resulted in the announcement of cuts in  tbe price of sugar to the consumer. The duties  on cement have been reduced 7 cents per hundred  Sounds on-British preference^ au#;10 cents per  undred pounds on intermediate and general  schedule, a reduction amounting to 8% cents per  barrel. Last summer, when there was a serious  shortage in cement in the west for building purposes, the government cut the duty in half to meet  the temporary situation. This reduction in the  duty has now been^made permanent.  Type-setting and type-casting,machines, which  are not manufactured in the country, and which  now pay a duty of 20 per cent., have been placed  on the free list. This is a great boon to the publishers of Canada.  The farmers have received a particularly valuableconcession through traction ditching machines being placed on the free list. In parts of  the country where there is much draining, abolishment of the duty will be of great value. The duty  was formerly 271/_ per cent. The machines have  been placed on the free list in response to numerous requests from the farmers* organizations.  Hospitals are now; to be allowed to import  glassware and sterilizing' apparatus free, while  appliances to rescue miners are also put on the  free list. Another important concession for the  consumer is the reduction on duties on cotton  threads, which have been reduced from 10, \%y������  and 15 per cent, to 7*^ and 10 per cent.  ���������a From a British Columbia standpoint the most  interesting feature of the budget was the an-.  ~~~ lContinued on Page 8)  SoMememary Estimates Give Vancouver $1,370,060  -Harbor dels $500,000  * -I  i������-      -.*������������������  .From tbe inception-of H. H. Stevens*duties as Representative of Vancouver  in Ottawa the "Sun*' has persistently endeavored to minimize his work and the  evidences'of his success in the matter in hand. The electors who gave Mr. Stevens  his large majority did not expect the impossible of him, but they did expect him  tp "do things," as has been his habit Wpufclieiife. Recent disclosures demonstrate  that their confidence was not misplaced. His success discredits tiie word of the  "Sun" and brings fully,to view ''-dark spots'* upon its disc* spots of partisan  prejudice, if not malice aforethought. A recent issue of that feeble, glimmering  light asks, "What has H. H. Stevens to say" re bis apparent failure in the presence  of the success of gentlemen from Victoria.' As a matter of fact* we know not what  he wduld say. but surmise that he would asl4 the "Sun" to read and digest the  report of the Federal grants covering the Supplementary Estimates, and then if  any vestige of honor remains in the "Sun" let it acknowledge that it has either  been in error or been guilty of publishing ity malignant wishes as accomplished  facts. . ;  The supplementary estimates are sufficient to demonstrate the ability and  influence of Vancouver's representative in -Ottawa. The electors are gratified and  are confident wt %ft. Stevens will follow up his successes with other and greater  achievements in the future. The report shows that of the $23,470,316 supplement,  Vancouver gets no less than $1,370,000, which is a splendid showing for this city.  The m6st important of these votes are the Vancouver harbor im-  ' provements, for whidh an additional amount of $500,000 is voted.  Others are: Vancouver Drill Hail,. $200,000; Fraser River, North  Arm improvements, $200,000"; Vancouver detention shed, $150,000; new  dredging plant, for British Columbia, $100,000; new boats for tiie fishery  patrol; $75,000 ;v a total bf $1,225,000.  Smaller votes are: Vancouver, South, postal station, $15,000; Van-  , couver. North* public building, $25,000;!Vancouver improvements toxoid  post office, $17,000; Vancouver, North, drill hall, $30,000; Vancouver post  station, $35,000; Vancouver assay office, $10,000; Howe Sound landing wharf. $4,505; Hollyburn wharf, $2,000; Deep Cove wharf, $3,500;  Squamish wharf repairs, $3,800; a total of $145,800. y '  Coromeuting upew the est^^ ���������  The supplementary estimates *iibow expenditures for V*&������ouver and  immediate vicinity totalling $1,370,800, a notable tribute' to the zeal with  which Hv* JJ.

'  Jf the "Sun" is as much interested in Vancouver's success at Ottawa as it  would have us believe, ft will acjeuowjedge its journalistic sins and rejoice with this  city over the manifest evidences of its best interests being thoi?bugh^  by Mr. Stevens-*M:he mm who ''tfoes things*��������� tbat -^v Spots on the  Sun" and demonstwrte the misleading character of its fading will-o^he^s^ligbti  Students <������f local^histoinr7Wou][d like to know what the laurier Government did  for Vancouver tluruig its long regime^   Facts, not "Sun" vaporizing is desired.  y y>yjC^  Victoria Pay!

If "coming events cast their shadow before  them," then an. era of unprecedented prosperity  is coming to Vancouver, for never in* the history  of this city were there so many large, cistly  blocks being erected, and that in the very presence of a money famine. These immense modern  blocks arc the shadow of the oncoming prosperity.  The pioneers of industry, like prophets, have a  vision .of the future, and build accordingly. This  city will soon have a million inhabitants.  Two Hundred Thousand.    .  ^ In a brief space of time Greater Vancouver has  grown, as if by magic, from 100,000 to 20Q,000,  and this under adverse circumstances. What will  be the rate of increase when the Panama Canal,  and our own improved harbor, our transcontinental railways and ship lines are. added to present  conditions of growth? Banks, money-lenders,  creditors, and men of public spirit should all combine to get ready for the "spring tide" of growth,  prosperity and improvement.  -       Optimism.  A reasonable optimism materially contributes  to the realization of the thing anticipated, while  pessttmism obstructs progress and insures failure.  The cultivation of hope and its exercise in Vancouver would help bridge the frowning chasm  that now- confronts many a struggling business  man.  How about organizing an Optimistic Society?  **������1Vr ��������� *&V*ise  9999m*\**99*P9j9  99^**\99et:^a**^t*\m9>o  As anticipated, the ^jlethocliat Conference discussed Moral Reform and the Social Evil with  jk^indred ' subjects^" Existing conditions in Vatt-  cpuver^7elieifed^^ .severe  criticisms of   the Polices  Commissioners and other authorities.;  Too much cannot be done to reduce these evils.  The Social Evil is a disgrace to us. Its tolerance  or segregation is inexcusable under the light ot  the twentieth century.  Who is to blame fbr its continued existence in  Vancouver?,  THS SALOON.  Leader among all vices is the saloon, than which  a more disgusting thing and cursed nuisance  does not exist under civilization. It, with its  handmaid, the brothel, and its companion, gambling, . clutch at the throat of true success and  threaten the distinction of the race.  Right here it would be well to call attention  to a potent force that may Be employed against  the saloon, viz.:   The Bowser Act.  "TBI BOWflBB ACT."  Xo more effective weapon for use against the  saloon exists in this or any country than "The  Bowser Act." By its application the saloon could  iii a short time be eliminated from every part of  the province, excepting a few of the larger cities  ���������and they, too, would feel its' cleansing influence. ''"  Under "The Bowser Act" all parties wishing  to open a saloon must first get tbe written consent of two-thirds of the population over the age  of twenty-one years. This gives men, women,  children and employees a weapon of destruction  to wield against the saloon. The existence of  this law should be widely published and generally employed.  An article on the Methodist Conference will  appear in these, columns next week. Some  features of interest may be anticipated.  {By Profeaaor B.Odium.

To these men and their stockholders we  say, Success. 7  The Canadian Pacific Lumber Company turns '  out over a hundred thousand feet daily, and ships '.  most of its output eastward. This movement  eastward, with the complementary movement  westward of factoried goods, is an interesting  study in economics. One side of Canada works  for the other, and the other'for the one. The  side taking the least goods neceasarily comes in  at the end as the creditor, and the settlement must  be made in cash.  The Port Moody Shingle Mill Co. has in hand  the catering of the insatiable east, and turns ont  a high grade shingle. Its success depends upon  the unlimited eastern market, the quantity and  quality of the material, and upon an up-to-date  management.  Real estate is very moderate in price. Lots of  good size can be had at prices ranging from  $4000.00 down to within the reach of the most  modest purchaser.  At present there is no dairy, laundry, druggist,  brickyard or moving picture theatre.

Its value as a token lies more in the  novel idea than in the price of the article. 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 Statea. The endearing  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 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 per sob. 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.

Now it doesn't take much to  create a sensation In the office of "B.  C. Western Catholic." Roman Catholics the world over are the most credulous of people. If such were not a  fact the whole Roman imposture  would fall to the ground like a pack  ot cards. There has been quite a  number of sensations amongst poor  Roman Catholics these last few >ears.  There has been the Phoenix Park sensation, the Mafia sensation, the Clan  na Gael sensation, the Holly Maguire  sensation, the Camorra sensation, and  the McNamara  sensation.     But all  [; these sensations are Insignificant in  the eyes of "B. C. Western Catholic."  To them the great and outstanding  sensation Is tbe alleged favoritism  shown by an Orangeman to a member  of hia Orange Order. If favoritism  such as this is a crime then there are  no  greater' criminals  on  the  North  7 American continent than Roman  Catholic priests. Any man who has  lived for a few years In any of the  greater cities south pf us know, that  where Roman Catholics are in the  majority it Is almost Impossible to  -obtain civic employment without a recommendation from a priest. Do  Knights of Columbus not show favoritism to members of their order?  .Are members of the Ancient Order of  Hibernians less solicitous than the  Orangemen to increase their membership?   But, then "To the Catholics the  n sensation of the hour is the exposure  made at the Civic Employees' Union  Investigation" of a man being asked  t>y his foreman to join  an  Orange  I^Lodge.  Mr. Trainor stated that Mr. Davis  [.told him one day thatthe way the  talons were running in the United  ���������^Statea' showed that they were simply  .auxiliaries of, the Fope of Rome, this  ^statement:.is substantially correct despite what the editor of "The Western  Catholic" or Mr. trainor may say. to  ithe contrary. At the time of the American Federation of Labor convention  jn St. Loulsi the Socialist press record-  '\ed the fact that a new organization  was being formed called the Militia  =of Christ.   That it is one of the many  auxiliaries that the Pope has at his  5S  of those, who are now guiding .its des* .auch aa the Militia 6f Christ Uf fa**  tin(es.

The directors of tbe Militia of. ChrlBt  are mostly officials of labor organisations, as will be seen from the follow*  Ing list:  John Mitchell, of the Miners.  Jas. O'Connell, of the Machinists.  D. A. Hayes, of the Bottle Blowers.  J. R. Alpine, of the Plumbers.  D. A. Carey, of, Toronto.  Roady   Kenehan;   Cbloratdo   state  treasurer.  M. J. Hallinan. of.

The Militia of Christ is made up of  Roman Catholic members of labor  unions, and is officered entirely 'by*  labor leaders, some' of these leaders  being implicated with the McNamar*  as���������these self-confessed criminals being, active members of the Militia of  Christ, which is founded upon Ignatius  Loyola's platform adopted by the Jes  hits.

Any advantages that labor has got  may be attributed to Protestantism,  and in spite of -the rulers ot the Roman church. Protestantism gives liberty; Romanism throttles it. Let the  labor men of the city study the struggle that Is going on in Belgium lor  the rights of labor. They should know  that the clericals are the enemy. The  very men who are at the head of labor  in the United States If they were in  Belgium would be found working, in  the interests of Rome.  . People' are never so blind as when  they'don't'want to see. From this  malady we pray that the leaders, of  the labor party here may be delivered.  Only a few months ago a few facts  were pointed out to them which they  to the machine and become merely sj  cog of it. There was something that  did not lie on the surface, something  underneath which waa'Itt reality what*:  controlled the gathering.  The above is a vindication of Mr. * connection, when   properly   made.  Davis and all he said. When Protest*  ant union men come,to their seasee  they will deal with their leaders- aa  the French republic did with the  Jesuits, who had almost ruined'.the  army with the same insidious method*-  as are being pursued by the Militia oj  Christ.

COWAN  Turn hi n 111 m inn im i  f  Faith In Port Moody  (Continued from page 1)  Alderman White, who headed the  poll, 'did not win by blowing his own  horn. His decisive win is therefore  something to be proud of. In his election speech, Aid. White declared himself in favor of taxing wild lands heavily in order to bring them into use.  He. also recommended a volunteer fire  brigade, and a fire hall as urgently  needed.       :   7  Alderman Ottley last week expressed the modest hope that it he had not  many friends at least he had few  enemies, even though imaginery, will  only seem like saltto the meal. Mir.  Ottley/ laid Btress on the Importance  of a system of hydrants through the  city tor fire protection.  Alderman Murray stated last week  he has had many downs during:his 31  years' residence in Port Moody. Now.  he has bad a very emphatic up from'  his fellow citizens, who take him at  his word, that whether elected or not  he will always remain the same John  Murray.  Alderman F. W. McNiece, though  not exactly an old-timer, belongs to a  fighting Gaelic clan and how that he  has entered the civic army he may be  relied on to fight for Port Moody. His  platform contained five planks; water  supply; roads, fife, protection, and  sewerage. 77  Like a good Scotchman, who always  prefers performance to promises, Alderman McKay began his election address by disclaiming any policy. Before he waB through, however, he had  coined an alliterative slogan for Port  Moody, which is soon to be a Big,*  Busy and Beautiful Burg.  Alderman McLean, the only successful candidate who waB chaired on  election night' and forced to make a  speech to the crowd, predicted that in  a year or two Port Moody will-be one  of the nicest and most booming* little  towns lh B. C The B.:C. B. R. has  only been waiting tor' the incorporation of the city, ahd with two electric  car connections, Port, Moody .will no  longer be in a back.wither. -".y.  Alderman Brittbn, who opened the  ball as the first speaker at the election meeting, with .the ; scriptural  quotation about the first being last,  will now begin \o entertain doubts on  verbal inspiration. Mr. Britton has  been a resident in Port Moody for the  past two years, -and his many friends  put their money on him, metaphorically, when be became a candidate.  Alderman Clarke's position, on. the  list ip the eighth place is explained by  the tact' that as everybody thought a  Port Moody council would, be almost  unthinkable without the Captain, the  voters assumed be was sure of election in any case, and voted tor those  they considered more doubtful.  - The address by His Worship Mayor  Roe is a most apt and able production and would do credit to any large  city. It is a guarantee of an able  mss's help at a time when mistakes  should be avoided for the sake of the;  promising future in store for Port  Moody.  PORT MOODY A COMING INDUSTRIAL CENTRE.  .Now, let us'have a nearer look at  some.of the elements and people contributing to the success of the Inlet  Port. * ,  Mayor P. D. Roe brings to^lbe aid  of the new city and council a.ripened  experience, baving had much training  by a matter-of-fact and long-continued  exercise in handling various kinds of  business. He is pre-eminently a public-spirited man, and has the confidence of all who know him.  y\ was pleased to meet my old  friends McNelce Brothers, formerly of  Grandview, Commercial IJrive, Vancouver They are among the men of  enterprise, are up-to-date brokers, handling a general business, and making  a specialty of Port Moody Real Estate.  They are careful and relaible men.  Mr. F. W. McNeice is one of the new  council, and has youth, vigor, and faith  on his side to throw into the city legislative melting pot  Another old-time friend, with whom  I have had many interesting chats, is  Alderman J. A. Clarke, one.of the old-  timers, and a general standby of Port  , Moody through good and ill.   He gives  is latest in design and best in|a part of h-8 gpare time to real estate  hand.

With  such  men  in  harness  the start,  at  least,  must be favorable.  Alderman M. R. Ottley is one of .the  busiest men in the town. His general Btore calls upon him for time, energy and business shrewdness which  ls the result of natural ability and a  long experience. He came from the  little town on the Thames, known* as  London, a city of no mean qualifications. Having spent 10 years in Manitoba, he took the Western fever and  came on to British Columbia, to which  many other wise men have come from  the East. He imports some goods but  gets most from the Vancouver wholesale houses.  Alderman John Murray having  lived in tbis Port for 30 years, has so  built up a character for sterling worth,  and so won and held the confidence 'of  the people that he has been honored  by election to the first City Council ot  Port Moody. He has lived on the old  homestead, which was a miltary grant  given to his father for military services. I well remember hie father, who  was1 an honorable and much respected  man, and an. honored soldier.. He belonged to the Royal Engineers;-from;  Scotland and Ireland.  I met a man who has made a wonderful record in the Orange Association. Mr. J. *Barnum was fifty-two  years away from attending an Orange  lodge, and when he had the chance to  visit one he actually worked his way  into the Scarlet Chapter, thia after  fifty-two years is indeed wonderful. He  is now one of the fathers of the community and his cheery face and voice  add tbelr quota to the pleasure7 and  interest of the town. ''..'.  My friend,'C. A. Crawford, is a  "father" in an important sense.  Though he is not a city father, he is  Master of the h. O. Lodge of Port  Moody, and with his brethren is proud:  of one of the cheeriest lodgerooms in  the' province. He and the other  Orangemen are an- earnest lot, and  they gave me ah interestng time, and  were of much assistance to me in my  Beeking information. It speaks well  for these men that they have 48 members, and are expecting others soon.  Their principles are sound and worthy  acceptance by every true Britain and  loyal man. Brother Crawford is an  Ontario man. Here he is one of the  men from many lands. Africa, Aus*  rails, all parts of the Home-land, eastern Canada and Europe, as well as  Unistatia have sent their representatives to the ne-**/ town, and thus Port  Moody has made them al tributary.  Johnston Bros, are among, the business men, and are carrying on the  work of general merchants.. They  have a good central, location,' and  claim to have an up-to-date concern.  They are a part of the city fabric, and  in the weaving out of the preseuJt nr*  ban fate tbey have their share.  In Mr. W. W. Ledgewood I found a  man who has an ancestral history running so far back that to' make sure of  its limits one has to go to Noah, or  even to Eve and her man Adam. -  I found another firm, under the  name of Durham & Johnston, who are  successors to Sidney Durham. Theirs  is a general broking business, and  they, in common with the rest of the  citizens, have an abiding faith in the  future of Port Moody. They are eastern men but have grown Into the  spirit of the west.  How we run across men and friends  in an unexpected manner! On looking into tbe Tburston-FIavelle Lumber  Co.'s office I ran across tbe manager,  Mr. R. J. Thurston, who was one of  onr Grandview VancouveriteB. His  thoughtful and considerate manner,  a������d bis few but wise remarks set a  man thinking. Here is a business  man who goes straight on with his affairs, thinks business, acts business',  looks business and is surely a seasoned business man. These men are  of vast importance to any centre,  large' or small. This firm keeps to  cedar products ahd are giving their  attention to the Easternrs in whom  they trust for "futures." Great is the  East!  It would take too long to tell of the  host with whom I bad a few, or many  words in this bright, promising saltwater inlet town. ]-[J-A.  As I chatted with H. A. Mitchell.  W. Walton, j. Blackstock, A. Oxtoby,  H. H. Jones, friend Kane and others,  I had many a peep into the nature and  spirit of the elements fusing in the  Port Moody melting pot. In the years  to. come these men will be numberd  with thos whom their later co-clti-  zens will look up to as the pioneers  and makers of the early city. In the  days when the population will be fifteen thousand, or perhaps even twenty-five thousand, some of these men  of today will be among the lookers-back  on the day of small things. Then perhaps some of them will be saying, as  many in Vancouver today are saying,  '���������If we had known how values would  increase we could have been wealthy."  Yes, let me say to the Port Moody investors, and to the present citizens,  that I believe that this new city Will  be one of the most successful and interesting and pleasant to live in of  the new and modern towns. With the  electric tramlines to Vancouver, to  New Westmnster and around the  North Arm as well as to Coquitlam,  and with, all tbe other advantage, Including railways, steamships, factories, elevators, gardens, orchards,  school and churches there must be a  splendid on-time-coraing for Port  Moody.  To this end I add my best wishes  and a short prayer.  Thus endeth Chapter Two. I must  return again before I venture on Number Three.

There was no .. response, and therefore he turned the  handle wltb excruciating1 care and  peeped in. A Bwjlft glance round the  large, low-ceiled room reassured him.

Tbey  stood him on the cushion, between  them. Paul wound his arm around  him,, pushed back his own bat removed hiB glasses,-and turned his face,  up to the child.  "Do you know me, chappie?" he  asked eagerly; "you said'you would  recognise me againany where." ���������"..  "Yes, I know you." he answered,  stroking his face, "you are the man  who kissed me; you a'e the man who  keeps the goat away."  "Bravo!" Paul exclaimed, lifting him w   down.   "You're a smart boy!   is mo-! flre; "will you tit here?"     X  ther at heme?" he asked, as the .child ~  cuddled to him.'  Guy shook bis head, gave vent to a  hoarse laugh; and licked his hand.  Paul Started; the action shocked him.  The contact of the little warm tongue  opened up a vista of a dreary waste  of childhood. With his delicate insight and fertile imagination he beheld  the rough, harsh, lonely child-life, the  poor little life spent outside the  Larches, In the; stables, in the kennels, out among the animals snd brute  creation, from whom he had received  all that he knew of love and kindness.  That this ruined piece of humanity  was the Instrument selected by Mrs.  Wycherly to accomplish any fell design, Paul never doubted.for an instant. He felt he held the future, the  arbiter, of Felix's fate In his arms,  and In the throe of the wretched conviction the boy's- head rested like a  lump of .lead upon his heart. The  vsstness of his powerlessness/ his inability to meddle with what  shrouded in impenetrable mystery  terrified him. There was nothing, he  could do but wait; wait with a bleeding heart tor the "something" that wsB  casting Us black shadow in advance  across ibis path. He looked from the  boy's innocent face/to the myriad of  calm, serenely-smiling, stare and tried  hard to believe that up above, behind  that stretch of laden blue, there et*  Isted a Supreme Omnipotent Power  allied to a tender, tearful P*ty; a  something he might depend upon,  that would combat would frustrate  disaster, and prove all-sufficient tor  every anxious, racking fear, for every  separate human need.  They were in the private road, now  belted on either side by acacia trees,  end JHun ter pulled close to the hedge  as he perceived the Hall broughsm approaching. Sir Thomas leaned from  the window and shouted to Birch, who  brought the greys to a standstill in  masterly style beside the doctor's gig.  "I am going to the station to meet  l*ady Hargrave," he said, in a voice  that quavered like the speech of sn  old man;. "I shall want to see you, Farley, on my return. I .hall expect to  find you in."  "YeB, sir," he said, somewhat sur  prised: "I shall.be in and at your service."  The brougham sped on, snd ths gig  came slowly out from the hedge.  "There's something wrong," Hunter  said, with conviction.  "Yes, Sir Thomas looks as if be bed  received some kind of a blow. Wh������t  are you going to do with the boy?" .  "Take him back to the Larches."  "I don't expect to be able to go to  London to-night, but I will hurry off  early to-morrow, ill get down bere.

I've known and entered Into most of  his Joys and sorrows, sir, and a trouble  like this weighs on me like as though  it ware my very own."  'May you tell me tbe trouble?"

"It's' her reputation, sir; she'vs  soiled her reputation."  "Reputation be hanged!" he exclaimed, unloading his overcharged  heart.

I've always heard, sir, tbe  reputation of a young lady in Miss  Judith's station is very delicate and  easily smirched. It's like a bank, sir.  the least breath of suspicion or doubt  tbat all's not exactly em-are briqgs  about a panic, and it's o_0 nd-out ruin  or years of. uphill work to recover the  public confidence."

J. Curry.  Imports from Canada.  Nassau, N.P., Bahamas, April 22,  1913.���������In reviewing the ^ahamas Oovernment Blue-Book for the year 1911-  12, it is extremely gratifying to note  that during the past few years trade  between Canada and the Bahamas has  been steadily, if somewhat slowly .increasing.  From^this source of information the  following may be quoted: In 1908, tbe  Imports from Canada into this colony  were valued at $39,76o; tn 1909, $47,-  639; ln 1910, $62,087, and in 1911. $63,-  946.  Owing to the fact that the Bahamian customs laws do not require importers to give the country of origin  from whence their goods are imported, it frequently happens that the information supplied is erroneous, tbe  port from which the steamer sailed  being invariably -or quite often given  aa the country of origin, hence the  above figures are not to be wholly relied upon aa being correct.  Importations via the United States.  - Importations from Canada' via New  York considerably exceed the direct  importations, and most of these goods  are entered as coming from New York  Instead of Canada. Nevertheless in  spite of this, the flgures given clearly  indicate tbat trade between Canada  and the Bahamas has steadily increased and as Bahamian importers  Show a marked preference for English and Canadian goods, there IS no  reason why in a short time a substantial trade should not be built up  between the two countries.'  As is the case in all warm .climates,  it Is unusual for large stocks of perishable article to be carried, the im-  ' -pottation as a rule being small but fire-  quent, and the merchants are neceav  sarfly compelled to buy from the  country which v supplies their needs  with promptness and regularity.  The steamship complunlcation between Canada and the Bahamas has  never been fast or reliable, and until  a faster and more regular service has  beeni established, ft is almost useless  to expect or hope for a very great in*  Men;|iim|s9.PHliliiil^ Campaign  MAY 12th to AUQPST m\l INCLUSIVE  \      peAkWRPRP you (JET W WiQTS  Grocers, Butchers, J)jy Goods, Hardware, Millinery, Tailors, Furniture,  -ISKationery; in fact, merchants in every line of business are giving ballots.  1  ���������vsgutm.

The  bounties were first given in -t808 for JJve y������tia for  Pa total of $2,500,000.   In 1908*tatra waa stiU nn-  _ expended >lr788,078.   Jn that year the bounties  :'wetft_ renewed for another five years.

There is still  roughly $600,000 unexpended.     Last year the  priee was so high that the only bounty paid out  was $68,064.93.   The price fixing the bounty has  been raised to ������17 ^8s. 9d.

I desire that it  7 should be noted that this is now a new bounty,  but an extension of time during which the appro-  i priation already made may be a Vailed of by the  ?��������� lead'producers of Canada^'  Since the Borden government bas come into  y jpower, particular 'attention has been given to  ; western problems, and many practical measures  have been adopted to alleviate western grievances.  Thanks to the efforts of the government, the grain  cropiast season was never handled with as much  smoothness. The government has at preseiit  under construction a huge modern elevator with a  capacity of three aad one-quarter million bushels,  at Port Arthur, an(d which will be controlled entirely by the Board of Graia Commission. Ever-jr  effort ajr** Js being: jnade to push forward the  Hudson Bay Bnilway to completion at an early  date, so that this route may be available for the  shipment of a large amount of grain every fall.  Jjately the question of interior teirjiiinal elevators b������s been engaging the attention of the  government, and it has. been decided to erect  several as an experiment, the exact .locations to be  settled very shortly. There will be a sum in the  supplementary estimates for the purpose. Building these elevators as terminals under the act all  grain coming in and out of them will be weighed  and inspected, and can be sold on inspection.  This will. enable; owners of grain to get a negotiable warehouse, receipt on which they can borrow from the banks or sell the grain on the  market.  H. H.. Stevens, member for Vancouver, has been  urging ever since he came to Ottawa that government elevators should be established at the coast  to handle the grain traffic which is bound to flow  to the Pacific when the Panama Canal is opened.  That the efforts of Mr. Stevens and other British  Columbia members has been successful is shown  by an announcement made in the House this week  by Hon. George H. Pertey, acting minister pf trade  and commerce, in connection wtyh the statement  of the policy of the government on internal elevators. Mr. Perley said: "A transfer elevator will  have to be built on the Pacific Coast so that it will  be ready for use by the time that the Panama  Canal is open, and also one at the terminus of the  Hudson Bay Railway. . This will ."'������������������ enable the  holders of grain in the interior terminal elevators  to ship it by whichever route gives the most satisfaction and remunerative results."
