JUNE 6, 1913.  No. 4  ,230,000 for Vancouver Improvements  From the Dominion Government.   Somebody Has Been Busy at Ottawa.    Vancouver's Representative Represents and Succeeds.  01 OTTAWA LETTER  By Arthur R. Ford  OTTAWA���������The killing of the navy bill by the  jiberal majority in the senate is perhaps as un-  [warranted an act of an unrepresentative body as  the history of Canada can show.   By their Action  jin the House early Friday morning the Senate  (demonstrated that its Liberal majority is still the  |ool of the leader of the Opposition, that when  .aurier pipes Sir George Ross and the rest of the  jiberals dance.    The  country  has witnessed a  spectacle that happily has not often been wit-  essed and that in itself is one of the strongest  arguments that has ever been presented for the  reform of the Upper House.  Though the action the Senate Would take on  |;he bill had been anticipated there were plenty of  len in the Commons who up to the last doubted  [f Sir George Ross and his fellow-Liberals would  so directly fly in the face of public opinion. The  Vote of 51 in favor of the Ross amendment, which  piled the bill was the answer they received. In  Tall the situation there ls nothing so striking as  [he change of Sir George Ross from Imperialist  servile follower of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. And  fust as striking is the change in Sir George Ross  >n tbe powers delegated to the Senate. In the  Ontario legislature in 1899 he made this declaration:  "The time has come when public exigencies  should be made effective and should not be  intercepted by an irresponsible body like the  Senate."  At the same time he declared that the Liberal  Convention at Ottawa in 1893 had pronounced in  favor of senate reform and that "if the question  .as not a direct issue at the last election it was  the people's minds." For twenty or thirty  fears, he said, they had been thinking of the con-  titution of the senate arid the dangerous power  possessed of obstructing every question of public import that might be brought up. Were we,  asked, under the principle of Irresponsible government or the principles of a ref erendum in this  J >ufttr.Y_? Public sentiment, he declared, would  ent any interference with the prerogatives  \t the House of Commons in regard to legislation  lat was supported )>y a majority.  Sir George on the same occasion supported a  Resolution calling for the amendment of ithe Senate whereby a joint sitting of the two Houses  light be held "at which the question in controversy and the final passage of such bill shall be  |lecided by a joint vote of the two Houses with-  >ut debate."  He was also in favor at tht time of  limited term for senators.  This was the Ross of 1899; what of the Ross of  1913 ?   Today he has led a movement in the Senate with the deliberate purpose of killing a bill  [which received a majority of nearly forty in the  [House of Commons and he has succeeded in his  [purpose.   And this he has done at the bidding  [of a man who was rejected by the people of Canada in 1911 and whose government then went out  of power.   Yet, by our constitutional system the  [strange anomaly is presented of this defeated and  (discredited leader stilt ruling as king in Isreal  |and having public measures butchered as he dictates.  This is a situation which no self-respecting government can let continue, a situation which no  Wf-respeeting people can permit to go on. For  it reason it brings to the front at once the ques-  I ion of senate reform ond it will not be a surprise  [f reform in the Upper House is one of the prom-  jent planks of the Government when another  [ilection comes around os it must at no distant  late.  When it is considered that for six# months the  Commons has been working on this bill, consider-  _ig it from all angles, giving to the country  pery possible bit of information that would lead  [o a*more intelligent view of it, the fact is. even  sore striking thait the Senate, sfter less than four  fays of discussion, with less than a dozen speeches  all and some of these of no consequence, can  impose its will that the work of the last six  months is absolutely nullified.   This is the situa-  jon that follows the vote in the Upper Chamber  ft one o'elock Friday morning.  And now what of the future?   At this early  Ute, with the rush of the closing weelc of a ses-  |on. there is difficulty in determining what the  surse of .the Government will be: indeed, it may  |e doubted if the Government has had either time  opportunity   for settling   its future   course.  _iere has been talk of a short session in the fall  hien in addition to the naval bill being reintro-  _ced there would also be measure providing for  mate reform and for redistribution.   Such a ses-  lonal program might properly be regarded as the  frv-fhide to the next general election.   Unquestion-  Ibly the Government could not desire two more  (Continued Page 5)  (Prof. E. Odium, M.4. B.Sc.)  Vancouver is in truth a Terminal City. This  statement is true of New Westminster, and also  of several other burgs not far distant. Some are  of opinion that Coquitlam is only a fake town. I  must make a confession, arid in this way help my  soul, for it is said that confession is good for the  soul. This depends on the nature of the act and  the confessor.  My confession is this: I was of opinion that  Coquitlam was punk, or boom dust. Sed veni,  vidi, and was conquered. The doings of this new  city are almost astounding. Money flows like  water in the proceeding permanent improvements.  Among the foremost, and this is common in this  big West, the Canadian Pacific Railway Company  is pushing forward at a driving pace, and doing  things on a scale that looks like Cit.y work and  Sea-Port on a large plan.  The area of this new town is nine square miles,  while the area of the Municipality is sixty-four  square miles. Inside of the above area of nine  miles is the townsite proper, containing about  four miles. In addition to the C.P.R. Co. there  is the Coquitlam Terminal Co. Ltd., an active up-  to-date institution. There is also the Coquitlam  Townsite Co., Ltd. Between these two companies  very extensive operations have been pushed forward, and on a permanent basis too.  The Coquitlam Star is a tidy, spick-and-span  paper, devoted to the best interests of the young  urban centre. It may surprise some to be told  that the population is now about 1,500, including  the large numbers of workingmen busy planting  the foundations of a modern city.  I had the pleasure of a visit with Mr. Fred Watson of the firm of Watson and McJCeown, hardware merchants. Everybody knows Fred; Fred  the erstwhile blacksmith, but more particularly  known and described as Fred the football star.  He is the genial, reliable, obliging manager of the  hardware concern, doing business so bb to give  satisfaction to all wbo come his way. Honesty  and obligement are two prominent characteristics  of this firm.  In the Coquitlam Hotel I ran across my old  friend William Routley, formerly of Vancouver  for several years, and aforetime of the Municipality of Langley, where he took a turn at farming in the days of small things. The firm name  of the Coquitlam Hotel is Routley and Martin.  The site is close to the C.P.R. station, and very  convenient for travellers. .  By the way the Railway Commission has decided that the station shall remain at its present  situation for a "time" and perhaps for "times"  yet.  The Commercial Hotel gave me a surprise. It  is one of tbe best, or the best building in Port  Coquitlam, and has furnishings and equipments  suited for 9 city of 100,000 people. Few hotels  in Vancouver we as well fitted and furnished as  is the Commercial Hotel of this coming city.  Mr. T. J. Furnival is the manager, and he tells  me that there 8re 46 modern rooms, all beautifully furnished. Prices vary from $1.00 per day up.  It caters to the family and auto trade.  It is interesting and instructive to see how  firms are built up in this Western land. I stepped  into the office of the Coquitlam Real Estate Co.  and found Mr. Godwin and his partner, Mr. Huff,  the former from England and the latter from  Ohio, the centre of creation in the United States.  In these two men from two very different nations  one csn readily see the differentiating characteristics. Time, and blood, and nationality will out,  even in a real estate office. They make a specialty of real estate and insurance.  -Captain MeSpadden, with his usual foresight,  has planted himself on terra firma in a stragetic  position, where he will, ere many groups of thirteen moons, make a pot of gold. Success to our  alderman.  The Dredging Company, located on Pitt River,  has twelve acres, and is busy dredging False  Creek, the C.P.R. has 1,000 feet on the Pitt  River.  The Coquitlam Construction Company has under way about two dozen buildings, and are doing  good work for the city. The cheapest dwelling  costs as high as $1,500.00, and many cost much  more.   All are neat and attractive.  It is said that Davidson and Smith of Winni  peg are to build on Pitt River flour mills to make  2,500 barrels of flour daily. The elevators can  handle 60,000 bushels per day .Thus we see that  the brightest dreams of the material optimists  are rapidly being made concrete in this work-a-  day world.  Coquitlam is another of the coining industrial  BRILLIANTS  suburbs of Greater Vancouver. Already Vancouver is the supply centre for this town, as well as  for a. score or more of others which promise great  things in the future.  One can leave Vancouver and spend the day in  Port Coquitlam and then be home in time to take  his evening meal in Vancouver, and he has not "  to rush in so doing. The B. C. Electric Railway  Company will soon connect this new city with the  Hub of the Fraser River mouth, Vancouver, for  already this giant has its feet on the north bank  of the Fraser. When the electric trams connect  with Vancouver, all these suburban towns, then  we will have so many lines and alternate business  or pleasure routes ������s to keep one busy for two  or three weeks in using them all. So moves time,  and so are the wheels of human life and affairs.  > "Frank Paxtori and Company" are real estate  and financial agents. The office manager is Mr.  H. D. Koening from Iowa, another important  State of the Union which holds aloft the Stars  and Stripes. Here I am informed that if all the  workmen in Port Coquitlam and all the settlers  tributary to the business be counted there is a  population of nearly 3,000. There are increasing demands, for schools. At present there are  three teachers, and the schools are crowded. This  makes further drains on the Government and on  the ratepayers. But as the schools are the life  and head blood of the state, the public spirited  citizens are glad to find the money. The national  schools are one of the first and most saving of  assets of any nation, and when attended by all  classes, as they should be, tend to bind together  in a sympathetic and natural manner the whole  people. "One school, one flag, and one official  language" must be the inevitable outcome of the  national public school system.  Already the new town is on the hunt after a  water system. The council and people are one  in determining that pure water must be bad, and  thjUvat an early date, and in large supplies too.  Lots on the main street run from $75.00 to  $150,00 per front foot. This is a safe indicator  of what is going forward. '���������/  In the heart of the townsite the C.P.R. holds  about 1,600 acres, a goodly chunk of laud for  railway purposes. Herein this company bas  shown its usual astuteness and long-fore-sight.  Banks, stores, financial corporations, elevator  builders, and even steamship men, are fixed in  faith in the future-of Port Coquitlam. At present  there is a twin screw steamer under construction,  and is intended for trade via the Panama Canal  with the West Indies.  The Coquitlam Financial Corporation Ltd., is  one of the best houses to be found in the suburban group 'outside of Vancouver. They are agents  for a large group of companies, including Fire,  Ocean, Accident and Guarantee, and other institutions. They handle eity and farm properties, but  will not sell anything of a wild-cat nature. Durability and permanent success make a stable and  an attractive motto for this house in the heart  of Port Coquitlam.  Now for a word to the wise-acres. Vou are a  class of men who know so much that there is little  left in this small universe that cannot be explained by you at sight. I have heard a lot of you  run down the future of Eburne, Port Moody, Coquitlam and other similar coming centres. You  may, and doubtless will continue so doing, but  the truly wise and enterprising go in, nothing  doubting, and win a reward you fail to get. As  their faith is, so are their works, and as your  doubt is, so are your blue-ruin chattering*. Why,  there is no business done without faith in oneself and in the environment. A lively optimist,  well in equipoise, will hoe out gold from any  centre wherein a gloomy pessimist will talk himself to death, and go about un buried for the want  of ability to cease prattle.  Go ask the men who live, and they will tell  you that all real life comes from faith. Can you  pass into the spiritual life of the heavenly kingdom and not have faith in your Saviour? Can  you have "etrenal life" by any possible means,  except through a daily belief in Jesus Christ ? Can  you build up a town, a home, a complex community, a nation, a. character, a high ideal, or arrive at  a vision worth working towards without a solid  substantial faith.  Even sewer pipes are made, sold, transported,  laid down in the earth excavations as the result  of a long string of faith, each agent doing his  little towards making the abstract thoughts of  many men become concrete. Thus then is man  made better, and thus then is life, present or eternal, secured in faith. Why, a man could not get  a wife, or a woman a husband, without a very  active faith. It does me good to have this bang  at you���������you grumbling, pessimistic, talking humans.  Pithy aad Eloquent 8entenoes from Hr. Borden'g  Toronto Speech.  "I call you to witness, I call Parliament to  witness, I call Canada to witness that the naval -  proposals were made in a speech in which there  was no ground for controversy;   I say that these  proposals were reasonable."  ''Sir Wilfrid Laurier made the greatest political mistake of his life when he opposed the  measure, and no one knows it better than he  himself."  ���������"^*******"*���������**-** ���������   *������^���������^^���������^"    v  "Tou, the people of Canada, of whatsoever  race or ancestry, possess this land with all its  boundless resources and abundant opportunities,  with all its free institutions and just liberties  by reason of the fact that a century and a half  ago British naval power was predominant on the  high seas."  "In truth our Empire of today was born of  sea power, was nourished by that power, and is  today maintained by it. Scattered over all the  continents and upon the islands of the ocean,  the pathways of the seas are the highways of the  Empire, and when they are closed or obstructed  it cannot continue to exist."  "No Government in Canada ever had a more  specific and direct mandate for any purpose than  that of the present administration to perform this  manifest duty."     ^  "'".:. ���������**���������**���������***���������************��������� . ���������"T1���������^-  "This Empire is not a great military power  and its existence depends on naval supremacy.  Its very heart is exposed to overwhelming attach  when control of tne seas is lost, and for this  reason more than one-half of those naval forces  which once, made the British.flag predominant  throughout the world, have been latterly withdrawn to the immediate vicinity of the British  Islands, and concentrated there through sheer  necessity." _,  "We asked from the Admiralty a plain unvarnished statement as to Hie actual conditions,  and as to tbe need .... and they specially  emphasized two points. First, that the aid which  Canada could give at the present time is not  to be measured only in ships or money. . . In  further response to our inquiry they answered  without hesitation and after prolonged consideration of all the circumstances, that any aid  which Canada might bring, should include the  provision of a certain number of Ihe largest and  strongest ships of war which science can build  or money supply.'  - ��������� -  "It was the plain and obvious duty of the  Leader of the Opposition to have given immediately his cordial assent and approval to the temporary provision which we thus proposed, under  conditions of urgency and upon considerations of  duty that no fair-minded man can gainsay."  "In 1902, in 1907, and in 1911 at any and  every Imperial Conference he (Sir Wilfrid Laurier) has maintained the same recalcitrant and  reactionary attitude against every proposal for  co-operation by this Dominion in the common defence of our Empire."  "The policy of Sir Wilfrid Laurier means  one result, and one result only, the severance  of every tie that binds this Dominion to the Empire."  "The thing is impossible (Laurier* policy of  neutrality in time of war) except as a most cowardly, humiliating and contemptible means of  achieving that independence which was the goal  of his desire in 1892."  "Mark well the Liberal policy as contrasted  with our own. I do not advocate and I have  never advocated a policy of permanent money  contributions. We propounded no such policy,  but propose under urgent conditions, to build,  to own and to utilize for the common defence  of this Empire, three battleships which will be  in the fighting line in the day of peril. The  Liberal policy vehemently opposes the appropriation of a single dollar for any such purpose,  but seeks to commit the country to an expenditure of one hundred and fifty millions at some  indefinite time���������in the future for a 'neutrality  navv.'

At a largely attended gathering of  the members and friends of Trinity  Methodist church, Grandview, held in  the Sunday school room on Monday  evening, the congregation said "Farewell" to the retiring pastor, Rev. Or.  A. M. Sanford, and to his wife.

The programme of the evening included a number of speakers and aev-  active and useful service. A commit  tee was appointed to discuss the offer,  and their finding is awaited with interest.

A great many of the parents and  friends of the pupils of the Britannia  High school attended the annual exhibition of manual training and domestic arts which was held last Friday afternoon.  In the domestic science department  were afternoon and evening gowns,  lingerie and table linen. ThiB department was in charge of Mrs. Martin. On  the same floor we're shown some excellent crayon drawings, oil paintings  and stencil designs, by all the pupils  in the school.  The exhibits jn the Manual Training department attracted a great deal  of attention.  Cabinet work of a high order such  as tables, chairs, writing desks and  reading lamps all, made by the boys  of tbe scbool were to be seen. . This  department la under the direction of  Mr. Hill, who Is a specialist. in this  line. An exhibition of wood turning  waa given for the benefit of the visitors. A number of forges and anvils  have been installed and next term the  boys will be taught blacksmithing.  Mr. J. S.

Stapleford, educational, secretary of  the British Columbian Methodist Conference; Mr. C. C. Knight, recording  steward of the Grandview Methodist  church, and Mr. C. J. South, Superintendent of the Children's Aid Society.  Messages of goodwill and regret at  their inability to be present were re-  ceived from Dr. S. D. Scott, editor of  the News-Advertiser, and the secretary of the Vancouver Adult school, the  latter saying that be had been instructed to thank Dr. Sanford for the  interest shown by him, and the assistance rendered in the work of the  school. After the programme, refreshments were served, and all present  were given an opportunity to meet the  pastor personally and repeat in their  own way the sentiments expressed by  the speakers.  Dr. Sanford is leaving at once, for  the east, where he has some official  duties to perform in connection with  the wot*,*ot;^������e churdb. He expects  to visit ^-Maritime Provinces before  his return, after whicb he will take up  his responsibilities at Columbian College. His successor at Trinity, Rev.  O. M.

It was quite a task to paint  a swaying pole at that distance from  terra firma. This pole belongs to E.  F.

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.

Experts Declare Long Beach Disaster  Was Caused by Inadequate Support Rotting Away.  Long Beach, Calif.���������Reporting officially to the coroner's Jury, the board  of experts appointed to examine the  wrecked municipal auditorium pier,  declared on Friday that last Saturday's disaster with its loss of nearly  forty lives, was due to the collapBe of  a girder, which was originally too  slender to bear the burdens intended  for it, and which had become almost  entirely decayed. There was no mention of responsibility.  According to the report of the experts, the failure of one girder caused  the crash.   This was set in the centre  of the pier section which went down  in the midst of the British Empire  Dap celebration.   It rotted, and collapsing, dropped several hundred people nearly all women and children, into a pit of Jagged planks and timbers  upon the ocean strand.  j    "The entire construction," the re-  jport reads, "leadB your committee to  j believe that the stresses and strains  jwere never properly computed."

Uishley Hall and Mrs. Hall. Regardless of the fact that it was a holiday,  and many friends were consequently  absent, who would otherwise have been  presnt the place of gathering was literally thronged. Mr. J. H. Stanton was  master of ceremonies. At the appropriate moment Mr. M. Derbyshire took  the floor and read an address, which  was signed on behalf of the congregation, by himself snd Mr. A. Q. Taylor,  recording steward, Mr. Stanton and  Mr. S. D. Scott.  Rev. Mr. Hall graciously accepted  the proffered gift, which consisted of a  purse containing a substantial sum in  gold, and expressed his warm thanks  for this added token of the congregation's multiplied kindnesses. He ran  over the experiences of the years in  which they had labored together, the  lasting' friendships formed and commended to their love and loyalty his  successor. Rev. Mr. Hall, during his  remarks, mentioned the fact that he  had received three communications  concerning his future sphere of labor  before conference, which had been  quite attrative.  An excellent and appropriate address was' made by Rev. Robert  Hughes of Kerrisdale, chairman of the  district, in which he paid *high compliment to the marked abilities and  strong personality of the outgoing pastor. He expressed his hope that Rev.  Mr. Hall would not long remain away  from Vancouver but that he would later return to this city and occupy a  chair in the new Ryerson College.  At a reception given Mrs. Hall a  few days ago the ladies ot the congregation presented her with a cabinet of  silver.  * ���������.|-,H������'H"l*������*������t'.H.<iiS-.i"H"H"H.t"l'l"M'l I I I'l I l.H"H.,i..t..H.i...i������ ���������"Mitl'l-** < I'l 114 II ���������!���������*.��������� ������������������������!��������� '1- -l- ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!������������������������!��������� ���������!' ;t- ���������!��������� ���������!��������� ���������!������������������!' ���������������  ���������Se  Of  We want to print an ad. about some high-grade Watches that we have in stock.

COWAN  1 _vu 11 !��������� i m 11 n i n 111 *****  OUR OTTAWA LETTER  (Continued from page 1)  appealing measures to base its campaign upon  than the' assistance to the Imperial navy and the  question of senate reform.  The session which has just about closed has not  brouglijt to fruition the greatest measure that  came before it but for that no blame can attach  to the Government nor will there by any blame.  Facing a constitutional situation that placed in  the hands of an irresponsible body the power of  making or marring legislation there has come  that sort of action which only political partisanship of (the most despicable character could dictate. Laurier, the man who talked of separation  in Boston, is the same Laurier and his policy can  only be construed as tending to one goal���������the  goal of separation and independence.  One thing at least has been done: the (two parties have been clearly outlined before the people  of Canada. The people know as everwhere Borden and his followers stand and they have found  out where Laurier and his forces stand. The separatists, the independence party is unmasked and  its leaders are Laurier and Boss. But great is  the downfall of the former Imperialists to the  position of tool for Laurier. The mighty have  fallen.  The Senate as at present constituted has 87  members. Of the 87 members, 55 are Liberals and  32 are Conservatives, leaving a Liberal majority  of 2'i. Jf the present death rate in the senate  continues-it will only be a few more years until  the Conservatives will be able to command a majority in the upper house. Counting the four  present vacancies there have been no less than  nineteen appointments in the year and a half since  the Borden Government has been returned to  power. With the nine new Western senators  which the Government proposes to appoint by a  bill now before the House of Commons���������and which  will at least pass when the redistribution bill is  brought down next session���������the Liberal majority  will be still further decreased, so that even the  end of another year may see the Conservatives in  control of the upper chamber���������provided of course  the Senate is not otherwise reformed fin the  meantime.  Real veterans are to be found in the Senate.  During the past year some historic characters  have passed away, but there are still to be found  in the upper chamber men who still link us with  the early days when the Dominion was in the  making. The death of Senator Miller during the  past year saw the passing of the last Senator who  was called to the upper house by royal proclamation in 1867, and the recent death of Sir Richard  Scott saw the last of another legislator who was  associated with pre-confederation days. Senator  William J. MacDonald of Victoria, B. C, is the  senior member of the Senate now, having been  called to the upper chamber in 1871 by Sir John  A. MacDonald when that province came into confederation. Senator MacDonald is a real British  Columbia pioneer and was a member of the old  legislative assembly of Vancouver Island when the  Island was a distinct crown colony of Great Britain. He recruited the first company of militia in  the days of the gold excitement of the fifties to  protect early settlers from the Indians of the  north.  The serum of longevity seems to have been  discovered by the Senate or possibly it is the calm  and peaceful atmosphere of the red chamber whatever the cause the Senators .have a remarkable  record for long living. The late Senator Wark  lived to be over a hundred and there are two Senators now over the ninety mark and who look  lively enough to reach the century mark.  Senator Boucherville of Boucherville, Quebec,  is the oldest Senator and was born in Montreal,  May 4,1822. He has had a long and distinguished  public career and was Premier of Quebec for four  years away back in 1874. He sat in the old Canadian Assembly in the sixties and became Quebec  Premier in 1874, being dismissed with his colleagues in 1878 by the lieutenant-governor. He  was then called to the Senate. But in 1891 after  the dismissal of Premier Mercier he formed a  ministry, but resigned a year later. Senator  Boucherville is in addition to being a member of  the  upper house a member of the Legislative  Council of the Province of Quebec. '::  Sir Mackenzie Bowell was born in Suffolk,. England, Dec. 27, 1823, now is iu his ninety-first year.  He is probably the oldest newspaper man on the  continent, as he entered the Belleville Intelligencer as a printer's devil three years before the  rebellion of 1837. Seventy-nine years connected  With the same paper is the remarkable record of  Sir Mackenzie Bowell. He was a member of the  first parliament of Canada after confederation���������  one of the few survivors���������and sat continuously  until summoned to the Senate in 1893. He was  premier for four short, stormy months in 1896.  But these two are not the only real patriarchs  in the Senate. There are five members of the  upper house who have reached and passed the  ripe old age of eighty, and no less than twenty-  seven have reached the psalmist's three score  years and ten. Between the ages of sixty and  seventy are twenty-eight. There are seventeen  between the ages of fifty and sixty, and only four  who are below the tender age of fifty. The youngest member of the Senate is Hon. E. L. Girroir  of Antigonish, Nova Scotia^ a recent appointee,  who is only 41.        ''  According to the British North America Act of  1867, the Senate was to consist of 72 members,  24 from Ontario, 24 for Quebec and 24 for Nova  Scotia and New Brunswick. The first increase in  the Senate representation took place in 1871 when  Manitoba and British Columbia upon entering  confederation were awarded three seats each. In  1873 Prince Edward Island, upon entering confederation, was given two members each, the rep-  sentative of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick  being reduced by two senators each, so that the  group arrangement of twenty-four for each section was retained. In 1882 Manitoba was given  an additional member. In 1888 the Northwest  Territories were given two senators and in 1904  the representation of the Northwest was increased  to four and by the Autonomy Act the Provinces  of Saskatchewan and Alberta were each awarded  four additional seats between them. So the Senate is at present constituted as follows:  Ontario 24, Quebec 24, Nova Scotia 10, New  Brunswick 10, Prince Edward Island 4, British  Columbia 3, Manitoba 4, Saskatchewan 4, Alberta  4.   Total 87.  A bill has been introduced this session, although  it will probably have to be held over until next  year J providing for an increase of nine from the  West, three new senators from British Columbia,  and two each from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and  Alberta. This will give each Western province  six senators, or a total of twenty-four, so that the  West will be placed on the same basis as the  maritime provinces and Ontario and Quebec.  THE KINO'S fOTtTBDAY.  It is improbable that June 3rd will ever rate  with May 24th as a national holiday, not because  George V. lacks the qualities that make a great  sovereign, but rather because the present King's  grandmother, Victoria, in whose honor May 24th  was and is observed as a holiday, ruled the hearts  of Britons far beyond what is possible ordinarily.  Sex, age, duration of reign, time in the nation's  development, and circumstances surrounding her  life, added to her extraordinary character, compelled love and devotion throughout the British  Empire.  June the Third will grow in favor as time  passes and King George the Fifth becomes personally known to his millions of loyal subjects.  "God Save the King!"

Ready Made Clothing Sale  The big sale, of men's and boys'  wearing apparel at the "Red Arrow''  Clothing House, 125-7 Hastings St.  West, is attracting unusual attention,  because of the quality of the goods, the  freedom of the sale from those shams  that too often characterize special  sales, and the well established reputation of J. N. Harvey for fair dealing.  The money market is low, hence this  cut price sale. The goods are there  open for inspection, the prices are exceptionally low, and the crowds are  there buying.

CHAPTER XXVI.  The Ktag of Terrors  Vaul rose late on the morning fol*  lowing "La Toaca."   His feelings had  frees ruthlessly harrowed, and aa an  -ifcneviteble   sequence. In his state of  ������ervouB debility, an indifferent night's  rest had supervened.   He was the last  -visitor to put In an appearance at the  Pendenn'e breakfast-table, and, consequently, found the coffee   somewhat  lukewarm, the viands unpalatable, and  the rcom deserted.  There were no letters,    no   telegrams,   no   dispatches  whatever from  Weyberne,   and   this  ���������circumstance alone was sufficient to  'make him feel tired, utterly good ter  toothing,   and   hopelessly    depressed,  jnivldeutly. with all due deference to  jpr. Hunter's professional opinion, tbe  ���������evening's dissipation had not agreed  with him nearly so well aa the musty,  '-flry-as-duat books at the museum.  (   Assuring himself, ln his   wave   of  -pessimism, that tbls, indeed, was the  lease,  and having nothing more  particular or Important to engage and distract    him,    he   lighted   a   cigarette, j  (mounted an omnibus, and awhile later  'descended and alighted opposite  tbe  jBrltlsh Museum.   The day's study and  (research  waa more conducive to enjoyment, more suited to his natural  Itrend and taste than theatre-going or  Jany other form ot amusement could  lining  touched It, and the strength having  gone from bis legs, he sank ob to a  chair by the table, and stretched his  arms across it with a low, scarcely  human, cry.  "Yes. sir; do you want anything;  sir?" ��������� ��������� '������������������'.;  There was no answer. However,  Johnson instantly arriving at the conclusion tbst Paul's attitude waa prelusive of disaster, came around and  stood in front of his chair. ^Faul raised  bit chalk-white face with .i(he,'grey  hue around his mouth and trleld to  articulate.    : X-. y'X--.  "Good heavens, air! Are you Ul?"  He saw the telegraph fom oil the  floor, and selsing< the carafe from the  table, poured out a glass of water, and  held lt to his.  Paul moistened his stiff lips.  "It is bad news," he said, pointing  to a "Bradshaw" on the sideboard.  "Look me out a train tor East Weyberne; I���������I can't see."  'There's one at 10,46���������the mail."  "Can 1 catch it?"  "It you start now, this instant  Shall I whistle a cab?"  He nodded and picked up the fatal  message.  "When did this come?" be esked-  "An hour after you went out, sir."**  He groaned.  Ob, the incalculable precioutnetf of  the hours be had wasted! The teet-  timable 4P*gc������ of the day that wag  deed!  He heard tbe cab rattle up to tha  entrance, and went into tht ball. Tba  waiter banded him hit hat. helped htm  oh with his coat, and held 'open the  egb door.  "four bag, air?  Will you leave your j  portmanteau here?" !  "Yes. I daresay I shall cease baok;  I don't know; It doesn't matter.''  Nothing mattered, not even tho  whole creation. Nothing waa ever  likely to matter, or affect blm again.  He stepped into the vehicle, pat half  g sovereign Into the man's nasi tnd  said, "Make him understand���������I moat  get tbla train."  ; MYou must make sure of tbla laat  train, sixty-five,". Johnson said, look-  lag up at the cabman. "You must land  the gentleman in time, you know, even  It your old gee-gee gives up the ghost  afterwards; lt*s���������" hs lowered Mt  voice���������"it's a matter of life and deojh,  sixty-five!"  Paul was scarcely conscious of the  run to King's Cross, but the sudden  {Stoppage at the station, and the need  for action, quick nimble action, roused  him. He ��������� took his ticket, entered a  jtlrst-class carriage of the waiting  train and let down the window. There  was hardly a soul about, he fancied be  must be the only or thereabouts the  only passenger. Mewed up and pant*  Ing for air, he paced the narrow limits  , of the compartment until the train was  I in motion, then threw himself down  on the cushions and stared out at tbe  moon-lit night.  This, then,  was the black, damnable "something" that had dogged him  icontlnuously  and  cast  its    prophetic  ahadow across hiB path.

He paused, his grievous young face  turned to the unintelligible immensity  above him, and lo! a star, brighter and  farther removed from the rest, twinkled, gently scintillated and smiled  down On him. It understood; it waij  sorry. Sorry for the aln, the pain, and  the misery he had brought Into hit  life, if so, lt was Felix. Only Fell,  understood; only Felix would care ot  be sorry. This was the answer. Felix bad gone; be was there.  "Felix," he said, gaslng fixedly at  the star, "if you are there I am coming, too. You know everything now,  darling; you know I love you; you  know I cannot stay here; you know  that you have taken my heart, my  soul, the light from my life; and now  take me.

He had  borne his trouble alone; been alone  to long, so many days, that the kindly  smile, tbe friendly greeting, brought  a dreadful obstruction in his throat, a  spring ot water- to bis eyes. The spontaneous welling of of those precious  tears relieved the tension of hie brain;  hie eyes lost tbelr fierce look; he was  sobered, calmer, more rational,, more  self possessed..  "Any news.

"Oh,  r Heaven's sake, open the door 1"  The bar slipped, the  lock turned,  the door opened, and he stumbled over  the threshold.  She held the candle above her head  and stared at him. He was terrible to  look at; his face white and drawn;  ithe veins in his neck and temples  swollen with running; his thin should*  art heaving; and, above all, the hungry yearn in the blood-shot eyes.  I "Is he alive?" he gasped.  1 "If you mean Felix, of course he's  alive. He's in bed and asleep. He's  getting well fast He posted a letter  to you to-day."  pear Heaven! The cruelty; the  waste of human suffering I He stag-  gated across tbe room into the near-  eat chair, laid his arms on the old  walnut table, hla head on them, aad  bant into a wild, convulsive sobbing.  Agnes set tbe candle down, rushed  across to him, and put her hand over  his mouth.  "Hush!" she said, In a sharp undertone. "Felix is overhead; you must  not do that here. Do you want him to  see what I guessed the afternoon you  refused to go back to town? How  cou|d you be so foolish aa to come���������  and in the night too?

He understood the importance of  her request, and struggled desperately  to control the drawn-out, tearing sobs  that seemed to rend and convulse bis  whole frame. Agnes, tn great trepidation; beside herself with ell kinds  of nervous conjectures, fears, aad anticipations, kept her hand over his  mouth, and muffled his bead In tbe  folds of ber dressing-gown until the  worst of tbe freshet waa staunched,  and the sobbing became less, almost  subdued.  "One minute, Agnes," bt stammered, deprecatingly. "snd 1���������I'll master it; you don't know wbat I've suffered.

She read the message and knelt  down beside him, drawing his bead to  her shoulder.  "I didn't send it; I didn't send It,  dear.  It's a diabolical, cruel hoax!"  "Agnes! Agnes!

"I had no. idea you were such a  poor silly thing," she remarked, giving him a shake.

Tbe antique furniture bad put on a  menacing aspect the harpsichord bad  a spectral look standing behind where  the shadows lurksd deepest; the portraits ot the dead and gone Flemings  assumed a mournful air, as if tbey regretted the untoward Incident enacted  in full view ot their unprotesting presence Doubtless they, too, had Joyed  and suffered in this self-same room,  and, perchance, looking back across  a "century's mystic absence, tbey  grieved at the sable strands of pain  each tolling weaver mingled and wove  with the bright scarlet; tbe sweet,  harmonious coloring, and the golden  thread than ran through the woof of  life.  Heigh ho! So it was over! She bad  often wondered how It would be. She  bad imagined and anticipated a hundred different dramatic endings, always attended by one huge calamity.  She had never dreamed of this quiet  prosaic end: ths; unbarring of the  French window, Paul stepping softly  out Into the November moon-light, and  the door re-closed upon a long mysterious silence, Instead of soma bor-  ribls. baleful trsgedj*.

But despite the attendant regret, how excellent bow  good a thing lt was to be freed from  ths weight of so much anxiety. That  the climax should have come so soon  was essential, and welcome In more  ways than one, for tbe men were Inseparable during Paul's leisure hours.

She held  up the candle and looked anxiously  across the room to behold Felix standing overwhelmingly large and substantial in the now wide open doorway.  He had slipped a cloth dressing*  gown over his pyjamas, and he looked  wonderfully handsome, his face  flushed with sleep, his fair hair picturesquely rumpled; the ends of bis  moustache bent upwards.  "What is the matter?" he asked, as  tonlshed.  :    "Nothing," she returned hurriedly;  "I thought I heard a noise."  "I heard a noise; was lt you?"  "Yes." she said, relieved; "I kicked  over a stool."  "I heard voices as well, Agnes. To  whom were you speaking?"  "Felix, you were dreaming.

A.  was held at the Dominion, Hall on  Wednesday night last. In tbe absence  of the president, Mr. Frank Sweat-  man, the chair was occupied by Mr.  J. W. Campion, vice-president. Tbe  reports of the secretary, Major P. G.  Tofft, on the work done by the society  during the past six months, aB well  as a financial statement, were read  and adopted; the report showed that  613 cases of alleged' cruelty were Investigated since November 1, 1912.  Seventy prosecutions were instituted  with the result of sixty-three convictions being obtained and the total  amount of fines ot 1748.50 being imposed. Four cases were dismissed and  three cases were withdrawn on satisfactory proof that the complaints were  remedied at once. Two hundred and  seventy-nine cautions were issued and  In 123 cases veterinary treatments  were ordered. In 141 cases no evidence of wilful cruelty was obtainable.  Fifty-four animals were destroyed,  viz., forty-eight horses, one cow, three  dogs and one rat.  f  FRASER  RIVER CLAIMS VICTIMS.  Fort George, May 31.���������The swollen  waters of the Upper Fraser have  claimed four additional deaths by  drowning. A raft with eight men and  one woman, belonging to j/Skelhow,  a sub-contractor of the Grand Trunk  construction, struck a log jam ten  miles up the Fraaer from this place,  and sank. The steersman of the raft  and Skelhow's wife were both drowned. The other members of the party  succeeded in reaching the shore in an  exhausted condition.  Messrs. Fred Lucas and Otto Chamberlain, pre-emptors, employed by  Green Bros. & Burden, in a survey  party, were both drowned while attempting to navigate the Fraser in a  canoe from Willow River to this place.  The Upp^r Fraser has risen ten feet  and its rushing waters can be likened  only to Niagara. It is expected that  the next two weeks will see a considerable diminution in the height of  the water.

The Chiropractor by a  skilful movement of his hands oa  tbe spine of the sick person re*  moves the pressure. The nerves  which have been dormant by reason of tbe 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 ber  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 effect1 baa a  cause." 8o the Chiropractor  finds the cause,, removes lt, and  then In the ordinary coarse of  things the effect should cease.

N. 1  The cost of the Canadian Northern  Railway system up to the present time  has been $265,000,000, including the par  ent and affiliated companies. The company has received guarantees from the  Dominion and Provincial governments  to the extent of 1120,000,000 and ha_  issued securities of its own which realized $145,000,000. This money was secured principally in England. These  securities received from the Dominion  and Provincial Governments have constituted a valuable aid, but the governments incurred no liability so long  as the company is able to pay interest  charges. The $120,000,000 of aid given is divided as follows:  Dominion of Canada, $58,000,000;  Manitoba, $25,600,000; Saskatchewan,  $8,000,000; Alberta, $5,000,000; British  Columbia, $16,000,000, and Ontario, $7,*  000,000.  The company at the present time  has in operation of He main line approximately 1600 miles, and it is estimated that by the end of 1914 C. N. It.  trains will be running across the cj_-  tisent. On the line between Montreal  and Port Arthur the late government  had given a guarantee of bonds to tbe  extent of $35,000 per mile.  B. C. E. R. OBSERVATION CAR.

The route  taken by the car is subject to change,  but arrangements will always be made  for covering every district and the rra  to Stanley Park and English Bay  beach.

It was a case of wood alcoholism and the symptoms were almost  precisely those shown by a man who  had been drinking heavily. The  firemen lost control of their legs,  suffered severely from "heads" and  some of them were sick.   They all  recovered.    , ,  The month of May just ended was a  bumper month for births and a poor  month for marriages, according to the  figures of Registrar Eden, who baa  charge of the vital statistics at the  courthouse. The exact figures for the  month of May were: Births, 464;  deaths, 141; marriages, 180. The figures for the preceding month of April  were: Births, 370; deaths, 149; marriages, 234. As Jane is the month fn  which Hymen Is supposed to hold  court, there Is every likelihood that  the marriage rate will top the bill for  June.
