Pu^etSpund, is following.  The company has declared, its intention to take  a the" Minnesota prff the route, load her for Europe, and send 'her.';", put. through, the "Panama  Canal to a British port to find a purchaser. This  Great Northern ship, of 20,000 tons gross: register, built at. Groton, Conn., in ^904, is the  largest vessel in the American merchant marine.  Her disappearance will leave the United States  without one steamer regularly engaged in transpacific service between the United States ahd  Japan, China, and the Philippines: . To displace  Chinese stewards, sailors, and firemen with white  men, as the La Follette law requires, would cost  the owners of the Minnesota .$12,200 a year in  wages, or nearly one-third of the ship's gross receipts for freight and passengers. Moreover,  the Minnesota receives no subsidy, though she, is  - operating in direct competition with Japanese  steamers out of Vancouver, only a few" miles  away, receiving liberal aid and encouragement  in cash payments of several hundred thousand  dollars a year." ^ '' ' '  The last vessel of the Pacific Mail, Company'  fleet���������the Persia���������is to be sold to the Japanese,  and the Chinese also are understood to- be organizing to- carry on the transpacific trade. Japan-  ese* and Chinese vessels can comply with the  requirements of the Act of Congress, for, of  course, their-crews are almost exclusively Japanese or Chinese. The law that was'meant to secure for American ^sailors the opportunity pfv  manning American ships has made the- Asiatic  seamen Uiasters of the Papific so far as trade  between the United States and the Orient is concerned.

The loss which the company sustained during the first five months of the war was  about six and a half million francs. The total  receipts for 1914 were 125,121,237.54 francs, representing a fall of 4,804,711 frorics oh the total  for 1913. Expenses totalled 32,940,674.77 francs.

The number of ships using the .Sue canal  was about three and two-fifths as many as used  the Panama canal. - The, total receipts at Suez  tl25,121,237.54 francs, being equivalent, at 19.3  cents per franc, to $24,148,398.85) were four and  five-eighths times the amount of tolls earned by-  Ihe Panama canal during its first year of operation.

The city council r in dbirigsojiist'  revealed another glaring instance of its shorti  sighted policy, one \vhich 'it has adopted atiryear.  The crying need at the present time is for era-  ploymerit. There are thousands .of men walk-  irigVthe streets of Vancouver at the present time,  worthy men, too, who have rib chance whatever,  of employment for the coming winter.- The summer has passed, and the winter season is fast  approaching, still the city council persist in following their ���������" do nothing. 'J policy as of yorg.;The  civic relief committee expressed themselves as  heartily in accord with the suggestion Of the  federal member, and* have beenVbusy during the  past week working out the details of ;the proposal- The land in question was within reasonable distance from the city, arid in ail likelihood could have been acquired at a reasonable  figure. The work could have been started ere  many weeks passed, but the city council, headed  by Aid. Elliott, have put the quietus on the proposition. There is riot one member of the, board  not a single one, who has mentality enough to  even suggest a possible solution to the present  unemployment dilemma, but still these fine fellows are sitting inx armchairs within the'precincts of our city hall dispensing the civic .finances with the ";> easy and grace of. a Morgan  or a Rockefeller. Not once since taking office  has.the present council shown a firm grasp of  civic business, and the lack of initiative-of the  aldermanic board of 1915 is truly deplorable.  In. January next there will be an election, and  the ratepayers will do well to remember that  what Vancouver needs is men of ability, resource and intelligence at the present time.���������  P. C. D.

We  take it that the nature of the communication  in part at least, was regarding financial assistance in case a strike occurred. Now, the,  Vancouver union, and other branch unions,, have  been paying-their assessments Regularly to the  International Union for many years. These assessments have run into thousands of dollars,  but in the first instance where assistance was  required from the head body it was refused.  Where does all the assessment money go? Surely this is a question of vital importance to the  local unions ,and one which is worth serious  consideration.  In# our opinion, what Canadian labor men  need is a breaking away from the International  Union in all its branches, and a formation of  a National Union of their own. One of the  points of importance heretofore enlarged on by  labor men in connection with International  Unions was their unbounded strength. Canadian  labor unions surely have reason for convincing  them otherwise, and the time is decidedly opportune for a breaking away from affiliation with  the International union. Give the laboring  man more strength to be sure, but not by putting "international" before "national."

How far their threat  to use their - -.voting power  against the President and his party will have effect, remains to he  proved. I firmly believe however,  that public opinion in the United  States remains firmly-on the-side  of the allies, and the recent inhuman policy of Germany and the  action of Dr. Dumba and his fellow conspirators / has _ greatly  strengthened it. *  ;  ���������* ���������   ���������   ���������       * '   '  The Vatican's Aggressiveness  The Vatican,, as all sane men  expected, is making use of the  government's blunder in appointing a minister to increase its powers still further. We learn that  three cardinals in the United  States are pressing President Wilson to follow our own bad example ahd send a special mission  to Borne. They will point to the  action of Sir Edward Grey, and  try to persuade the statesmen at  Washington that there Qan be no  harm in recognizing the Pope's  sovereignty, seeing that Protestant England has done so. It is  to be hoped, however, that the  United States will show more regard for its own dignity, as well  as for its interest. I believe the  British mission will create trouble for the empire and for all  Europe. It is\ the avowed intention of the Vatican to claim the  right to bb-represented at the  European conference which will  be held^ after the war, and to  demand'any rearrangement of  boundaries shall include the restoration of the Papal States.  ���������   ���������   ���������  Mr. John Redmond /recently  said, '' Now all classes are united  ���������in Ireland."

What is surprising is  that they have made so little progress. A gentleman with, whom I  was in conversation the other  day told me that visitors to St.  Louis might imagine they were  in a German city, and we know  there is a large colony of Germans in many of the other great  cities. The existence'of some six  hundred German newspapers in  the country is evidence of the extent of the German element and.    ���������    __   ���������   yet the  attempt  to, organize it {Kingdom, regard what has been  has largely failed in spite of ithe  endeavors of Bernstoff, Vpn Pap-  en, and Doctor Dumba, assisted  indirectly by W. J. Bryan, who  is loved so much by the German  in the United States that one .of  them weighing 240 lbs. and full  up with the beverage that made  Milwaukee famous publicly kissed  and .hugged him recently.  In spite' of all this many thousands of Germans have become  real citizens of the United  States, and they are out of sympathy with the aggressive policy  of the Kaiser. The others who  are trying to influence the Wash  ington government are now arousing the indignation of the majority of the' citizens, if we can  believe newspaper reports from  the other side of the border, and  they are told by these papers  that when they accept American  citizenship they must leave their  partizanship behind them, but all  the telling in the world will  never prevent men looking back  with strong favour to the land  from which they or their forefa-  HANBURVS  For  UJMBEJUSASH-POOBS  WOOD & COAL  Phone: Stoyview 1075  done as an infamous outrage, and  are determined to undo it as soon  as they have an opportunity.  ���������   ���������   ���������  The bi-monthly meeting of the  Irish Association of British Columbia was, held at 425 Pacific  building -on Thursday night.

Insurance  The greatest forest region ,in  the 'world, without exception, is  the Pacific slope of North America. It extends along the continent north and south for 2,000  miles, and from the Pacific Ocean  eastward to the Rocky Mountains, British Columbia occupies  the North Central portion of the  Pacific slope  This forest region contains  over half the standing timber of  North America. In its forests are  the timber giants of tbe earth,  world famous, oldest in years,  largest in size, yielding the best  and clearest timber obtainable  and in the largest dimensions.  The biggest and finest timber  grows in the coast forests, from  which, because of. their accessibility, all of the material for water export is obtained.  The Pacific forests are composed almost entirely of softwood  (that is, coniferous or evergreen)  species, the few hardwoods rarely  occurring in commercial quanti  ties.. This fact is an added advantage because softwood lumber, on  account of its lightness, strength  and ease of working,, is the most  useful for general purposes, and  comprises over three-quarters of  the world's wood consumption today.  The trees most important are  Douglas, Fir, Western Hemlock,  Western Red'- Cedar, pSitka  Spruce, Western' White . Pine,  Western Larch, Mountain Western Pine, Redwood and Sugar  Pine. All these species, except  Redwood and- Sugar Pinej are  found and reach prime development in British Columbia. There  are, in addition; a dozen or more  species of lesser importance.  British Columbia's Forests   ~  British Columbia occupies the  Northern Central section of the  2,000-mile continental forest belt  of the Pacific slope. The forests  of her coast and those on. the  watersheds of. the upper Fraser  and Columbia rivers (the largest  rivers of the Pacific slope) are  particularly fine.- The stand of  merchantable timber in the province is estimated to reach the  enormous total of .four hundred  billion feet board measure, which  is over half the total of all Canada. The annual cut is at present  in the neighborhood of only one  and one-half billion feet board  measure. The forests can supply  indefinitely a yield considerably  greater than that.  The lumber industry in the Pacific coast forests is, conducted  under the keenest 'competitive  conditions. This is because of  the enormous quantity of; virgin  timber and its distance from the  great lumber markets of the  world, such as Central and Eastern North America, the United  Kingdom, Europe, South America, and South Africa, where the  Pacific Coast timber must meet  and compete, with that from eastern North America and from northern Europe.  These factors, in conjunction  with the extraordinary sizes of.  the timber to be handled, have  resulted in the adoption and use  of the biggest, most powerful and  fastest machinery, the largest and  finest mills, and the most efficient  methods of logging and saw-milling to be found in the world,  facilities for Export  British Columbia occupies an  especially advantageous position  for supplying the overseas market. It has vast quantities of  timber unsurpassed in size, qual  ity and suitability for the manu  facture of all kinds of. dimension  timber, lumber, shingles, piling,  poles, posts, railway ties or sleepers, pulp, paper and other wood  products.  There are numerous easily navigable inlets and channels indenting the coast and separating the  many islands, which makes the  coast timber extraordinarily accessible. There are many deep  vater harbors suitable for mill  sites, and many good water powers. Some of them are now  used; more are still available.  Because of the mild climate the  harbors do not freeze in winter,  and logging may be carried on  the year round. _      The mills" are of the most modern type and have a capacity  much greater than their present  output. They are fitted with  every appliance for shaping and  finishing timber for final use.  Their products include all kinds  of. dimension timber, lumber, shingles, posts," poles, piling, railway  ties or sleepers, pulp, paper and  other wood products. They are  prepared to deliver these products in any size, shape, finish or  quantity desired. Dimension lumber is a specialty, and can be  supplied in all sizes, and of a  quantity obtainable on the Pacific coast of North America, and  nowhere else in the world.  x-: .VX;XX>'X<  w���������&-   Xx x-!  m rfi  *%  J  OS.

The removal of these men practically completes the work begun some time ago, of elirii-  mating the English-speaking professors.     /The  provincial of the Oblate Order, controlling the  college,  Bev.

Colonel Barone, a leading Italian military  writer, after a visit to General Joffre's headquarters, writes that some people 'among them  the French supreme command,' think that in the  present circumstances a general offensive on  the western front can' be delayed without inconvenience in order that once it is begun it can  be carried out thoroughly without interruption.  By pushing her advance into Bussia Germany  is marching to disaster, and it is far better, he  says, for the allies to await this event and then  to strike. That is how the Franco-British commanders reason, and, far from- believing.- that  they are abandoned to their,fate the-Bussian  General staff think so, too.

The  Italian-Press says that the very reasons which  might make peav    desirable for Germany would  cause it to be dis^trous to the Allies.   'Peace at  the present time would be a  victory for Germany, giving immunity to-day and triumph tomorrow to German militarism.'

The harvested area of fall wheat in the  five provinces of Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia amounts' in  1915 to 1,208,700 acres, as compared with 973,-  200 Mres in 1914, and the total estimated yield  to 33,957,800 bushels, as compared with 20,837,-'  000 bushels in 1914, an increase in total yield of  4>3 p. ei* .

The death of Sir William Van  Home removes another of those  intellectual   giants   whose    marvellous executive  abilities    carried to fruition the undertaking  which people used to laugh at���������  the construction of the first Canadian   transcontinental   railway.  For the six years from 1882 to  1888, during the period the C. P.  B  underwent its greatest struggle for existence, he was its general   manager   or vice-president  and for the ten years following  he was its president.    During the  latter   part   of   the   nineteenth  century he built up a world repu-'  tation as a railroad man; during  the fifteen, years of the twentieth  he had become known as a stock-  raiser and an art critic of note.  In 1857 the former president of  the C. P. B. began his' career as  a railroad man, at the age of 17,  and ten years  before  his marriage. He became a telegraph operator In the service of the Illinois Central Bailway in his native  state of Illinois and was subsequently ticket agent, train des-  patcher, superintendent  of telegraphs and   divisional  superintendent in ther. Chicago &������ Alton  railway. For a time he held executive   offices in the   St. Louis,  Kansas City & Northern Bailway  and    the , Southern    Minnesota  Bailway (of which he was president   between   1877-79), and  in  1880  was appointed  general superintendent of the* Chcago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, at  that time the largest railroad corporation in America. ^  i Sir William's first experience  in Canadian -railroading was in'  1882, when he was asked to assume the general managership of  the C.

"GOD SAVE  OUR MEN"  Miss Jeanie Dobson, a teacher  in the Ballarat High School. Australia, writes: "Every Sunday  now we are singing the following lines after /God Save the  King' in church and Sunday  school.  God save our splendid men!  Send them safe home again!  God save our men!  Keep them victorious,  Pationt and chivalrous,  They arc so dear to us,  God save our men;  A GEBMAN-AMERIOAN VIEW  A writer in the New York  Evening Telegram 'has this to  say regarding ,, some German-  Americans, who President Wilson  and his cabinet seem unable to  understand. There are many such  traitors in the U. S. and Vanco-  ver along with other border cities u and towns have their puota  to deal with. Tbe letter follows:  "Born of Germans who .came  here in the 50's, J am nevertheless American in all my ideas,  namely equal rights and privileges to everybody living according to moral and civil law'.  "When Germany one year ago  disregarded all international  signed agreements and ravished  and obliterated Belgium to get  at England and France, my patience turned into disgust and  contempt for Germany with its  so-called civilization and "kul-  tur."  "Events since then have not  changed my attitude.. ^ -  "Of;the 21,000,000 German-  Americans here, nearly all would  dearly like to see the war crazy  Kaiser subdue England and naturally take over. Canada and  rule it with Prussian military  and eventually banter us into a  conflict.  "Go into any place where these  German-Americans can talk privately, as in,a beer stube, bakery, grocery store, etc., and one  can hear how they ridicule, satirize and belittle our government  and ways. It has been my experience many times in the last  year to have to listen to these  traitors, renegades and violators  to the path of allegiance they  have taken; to become Americans  and enjoy American liberties and  privileges, ever denied them in  their .''Liebeg Vaterland'- ' and  were they to talk there as they  dp here, they would be put out  of the way in short order for the  good ofv the ^Vaterland^' This  is a cold fact, not to\ be denied  by any one who isj the least bit  .acquainted with Teuton govern-:  inent, no matter .what representative.

The  tiants, however, have not for a  lay or two yet, got the bunting  pinched, and there is many a slip  lowadays.   The Indians and the  Hants have a four-game matinee  to play in Seattle, and the final  .turning point of the league will  10 doubt hinge on these games.  3pokane has fallen away hopelessly in the last month, while the  [Seattle team has been coming on  [in great style. Just now the Seat-  Itle team is altogether too chesty  land while the fans of the circuit  are pulling for them, they had  better   remember   that   baseball  fans are fickle minded if they see  the slightest cause for a change  I of heart.  ���������   ���������   ���������  The   lacrosse- championship   of  Ithe east   will   be   settled in the  course  of the  next  few weeks.  Toronto  Rosedales  will  play  in  Montreal   first   dud the   return  will be  played  in Toronto,   the  number of goals  to  count.  The  Toronto team will pla-j* on Sunday in Montreal, something new  | for the  team from Toronto  the  Good.   It seems  hardly   credible  that the citizens of Toronto"would  countenance the team which violated the Sabbath observance programme   which   is   supposed   to  jbe so widespread in Toronto.' As  | for the   Nationals of   Montreal,  I most of them will have said mass  [before the game, and will'be free  to do anything they like for the  balance of the day.  Football holds, the boards in  local sporting events at the present time. -The teams will get into action on Saturday in real earnest, and for five months devotees  of the game will see plenty of  their favorite pastime.  ��������� ��������� *#  Local fishermen were out in  numbers on the West Vancouver  waterfront one day this week, the  report gaining ground that the  salmon were numerous in that region. As a result several good-  sized fellows .were caught.  ��������� ���������   ���������  Fistic critics seem to be divided on just who had the best of  the argument on Saturday night  in New York in the bout between  McFarland and Gibbons. The Associated Press say Gibbons easily  outpointed the champion, and reports from many other ringside  critics say McFarland. So far  as the public out this way were  concerned there was little to pick  between the popularity of the two  men.'There was little or no money wagered on the result in town,  for the very good reason that no  one seems to have any cash to  lose.

Robertson. B.A.)  There is an rqld ^egend about  the origin -of' the Hungarians  which declares them to be descended -from one Nimrbd; who,  according to the book of Genesis,  "began to be a mighty one in  the earth,' and a mighty Hunter  before the Lord." ' Nimrod, so the  legend asserts, was the. father of  two sons, Hunyar* and Magyar,  who, whilst hunting in distant  lands, came suddenly on some  beautiful fairies of the woods,  whom tbey carried away as their  wives. But they also saw that  the country into which they had  strayed was rich in meadows and  pasture lands, so, on returning  to their own place, they sought  and obtained their fathers consent to settle in the newly discovered territory. Hunyar and his  tribe settled beyond" the banks of  the1 Volga; #Magyar and his  people along the Don.  So* much for legend. History  can tell us little more about the  origin of the Hungarians than  that about the middle of the fifth  century the Huns, under the  leadership of Attilt, "The.Scourge  of God," overran Central Europe, and founded there a great  kingdom. This, however, owing  to the strife between Attila's  sons, did not last long, but soon  fell to pieces. Some of the Huns,  returning to their own land, told  their cousins the Magyars of the  rich soil and pasture lands of the  west, and soon after that they  began to migrate in that direction.  About 884 A.D., under the Seven Dukes with Arpad at their  head, the Magyars pressed into  the valley of the Danube, which  they found thinly populated by  the Germans, Slovaks and Slov-*  ens. These they defeated in a  series of great battles known aa  "the Battles of the Home Making," and little ancient Israel  gradually took permanent possession of the land. Yet, though  they have dominated the country  from that time down to the present, it would be a mistake to  think of. the population of Hungary as a homogeneous one. The  Magyars have never had the power to assimilate other races, and  through all the 1,000 years of  their residence in Europe the  racial and linguistic differences  have persisted. There are in Hungary at least five of the grand  divisions of the human family,  viz., German, Slav, Magyar, Latin and Jew. As a writer has  well said of Austria, so in Hungary the word "nation" has  little real application; it is a veritable Tower of Babel erected into a government." The situation  there presents to Canadian nation builders a striking object lesson, an understanding of which  should help ns to deal more intelligently and sympathetically  with our own immigration problem.  ' Nothing is more difficult than  to describe the exact type of the  Magyar race. They are a, conglomerate of all the tribes that  came into the country at the  time of "The Homemaking." -Several types exist, but which is the  true Magyar cannot be said. , In  any case they are Asiatic. Their  language is a mixture of Turko-  Tartaris and Pln-Ugor, but mueh  changed by time. A recent investigator has discovered at least 700  words that are common to the  Magyar and East Indian languages, and he also asserts that  these same words belong, to the  Indians of California and Mexico.  Essentially a fighting people  who have had to give up war,  the Hungarians have sought to  fight in other ways, and always  ready for a scrap. This explains  the prevalence of duelling among  them,and the frequency with  whicb their fetes end in blows.  Warriors first of all, after that  they were shepherds, and, to this  day being a shepherd is the favorite occupation among them.  Field work and gardening have  only taken root with time and  through necessity. Fifty years  ago wide stretches of land were  still unbroken by the plough. On  these open plains the shepherds  herded their horses and flocks,  sheltering in straw huts, and  and throughout the summer  beasts and men living a semi-  wild life. But a paternal government has during the last half  century given much attention to  agriculture. Large areas of wild  land have been reclaimed, and  now everything that affects the  tilling of the soil and the breeding of cattle receives wise encouragement.  The temperament of the Hungarians is a peculiar mixture of  quiet logical philosophy, with sudden outbursts of passion. They  have a j strong vein ,of humor, to  which is added a touch of melancholy, so that there, is a saying' that "The Hungarian enjoys  life with weeping ������eyes." . J  ��������� Family lif e is considered the  basis of all well heing and'the  language is rich in terms of re-.  spect and honor for parents and*  elders.1 The wife is oymer of half  ber husband's properly,'and has  great honor ahd -power h% the  household.  Thejr are a poetic race, fond of  music, with a passion for dancing wfiich they indulge on every  opportunity, Sunday afternoons  after church services being a favorite oceasion for this exercise.  Most of what has been written here applies more particularly  to the peasants of the country,  but when it is remembered that  sixty-nine per cent, of the population of Hungary is engaged in  agricultural and kindred pursuits  it, will be seen how true these  characteristics are of the whole  people.  The assimilation of the Jew is  one phenomenon that must not be  overlooked in any estimate of the  Magyar race. It is the one exception in their failure ~to assimilate  other races. The Jew has been received with marks of consideration and good feeling, and has  been invested with every civil  privilege it was in the power of  the state to bestow. Consequently he has- become thoroughly  identified with the nation, and by  intermarriage and apostasy has  brought to a traditionally lawless people the leaven of stability. The commercial awakening  of the country owes much to the  Jew, and in other ways the land  of his adoption is under an obligation to him.  Since 1867 the government has  given more attention to education, with the result that now  about sixty per cent, of the people  are able to read and write. Special attention has been paid to  such subjects as hygiene, food  adulteration, sanitation, child  welfare: and proper treatment of  criminals. No article of. food can  be exposed for sale in Buda Pesth  without being examined, sealed  and stamped.  Buda Pesth, the capital of  Hungary, is a beautiful city. Lying on either side of the Danube,  joined by a magnificent single-  span suspension bridge, it is rich  in fine public buildings. The  Magyar is proud of Buda Pesth's  magnificence, and the splendor of  her achievements in art, music,  education and science, yet no city  in the world is so little representative of the life of the people. A  eountry ninety-five per cent, of  whose area is productive, could  never be adequately represented  by any city, however many sided.  The peasant proprietor is the asset of-the", country; that of Buda  Pesth is the commercial Jew.

When Western Canada began toj  the season and the condition of  the labor market. Altogether,  there are from 17,000 to 19,000  people of the Magyar race in the  western provinces. While segregated in district colonies, yet  they are well interspersed with  English speaking people, and it is  ai tract  settlers,  the  Hungarians) said that there are not many of  also began to look in this direction, with the result, that the  Aid Society entered into negotiations with a view towards settling  their people in Manitoba. Under  Count JSsterhazy colonies were  established in the district north  of Neepawa. Later arrivals have  gone further west to Esterhazy.  A colony was started some years  ago_at Woodridge,_east^of Winnipeg, but the land and conditions'  have not been found to suit the  Hungrians, so that most of them  have since gone to the western  prairies.  Being so essentially an agricultural people, the Hungarians do  not linger long about the towns  as a rule, but go as soon as  possible to the land. In Winn-  peg there is a varying colony of  from 800  to 1,000, according to  their children but are able to  converse readily in English.  Everywhere they are taking ' advantage of the public schools  and are keen to adapt themselves to the conditions of the  country of their adoption.  The Hungarians are a religious  folk, yet conservative withal. It'  was, perhaps, this characteristic  that_prevented-the doctrines o������  the Reformation in making great-,  er headway among them. Yet  tbe fact remains that there is a  strong Protestant chtprch in the-  homeland. . Of those who have  come to Canada' about half are  of the Calvinist church, and have  affiliated with the Presbyterian  church. There are three Hungarian ministers who are graduates  of Manitoba College and who are  laboring among their own people.
