 glBlative AB^rnMy  1  Phone: Fairmont  1140  A* for Aavertisiag Rates  Published in the Interests of Vancouver and the Western People  VOLUME V.  It B. STEVENS, M.P.V Editor-in-chief.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, JtJLY 25, 1913.  POPE'S ABLEGATE IN CITY  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  The Rev. Stagni, D.D., hay waited Vancouver  and gone again. While here he was well received  by his people, as was right and proper. His visit  should be of much value to the Roman Catholic  Church. He is undoubtedly one of the most astute  and able representatives within the service of the  Pope. In Canada, he is a special envoy of the  papacy, and as such he is welcomed and honored  by the church to which he belongs.  In his address at the Pender Hall welcome, the  ��������� Rev. Ablegate made reference to the work of edu-  H' cation throughout the world by his church.  He thinks that British Columbia does not give  his church a fair opportunity in the matter of  education. According to the newspapers, he says:  ''On this particular point the Catholics of British  Columbia were under a disadvantage." This  seems strange. The children of all sorts are put  on an equal footing in connection with our school  system. What more can he want? He would  answer in plain language, if he spoke freely, and  say that the Roman Catholics want Separate  Schools, so that one part of this Canadian West  may have two nationalities grow up side by side,  and imbibe the inspiration, spirit, genius and aims  | of two seperate peoples.  British Columbians, through their legislators,  are content   with .one nation under our UnionN  Jack; and have no desire to give any religious  class some special privilege.  The Reverend Ablegate thanks God for the liberty his people enjoy in British Columbia, and  adds: "It is very different in some other countries." Yes, this is true. In Prance, Spain, Portugal, and Italy, these Roman Catholic countries  are rather hard on the Holy Roman Church. And  why? There must be some pressing reason. It is  a fact that the Roman Catholic countries alone  1 are the persecutors of the priests, bishops and  the Church in general and in particular. And  why?   There surely is an answer somewhere.  Again, the Reverend Ablegate Stagni speaks  . highly of education, and claims much for his  h church during the ages past. Without going into  history, what about the present? It is not likely  that the educational past of the Roman.Church  is more glorious than the present. How glorious  is the present? Ask the Portuguese. Ask the  Spanish. Ask the Italians. Ask Mexico, Brazil,  Peru, Colombo, Chile, Paraguay* and Uruguay.  Let them answer. These countries are almost totally Roman Catholic; and yet they are among  the most uneducated, ignorant, superstitious and  backward peoples on earth. And for, hundreds of  years they have been under Roman rule.  But some of them have broken with the church,  and are driving out the religious teachers who  have little caring for education, or have not the  power to give the education they are striving to  impart. Somehow the children get a lot of education about saints, creeds, beads, crucifixes, and  obedience to mother church, but of history, reading, writing, arithmetic and the ordinary elements of a fair education they have little knowledge.  And this is one of the reasons that have forced  the Roman Catholics of France, Spain, Portugal  and Italy to turn out the priestly teachers and  replace them with state or national teachers-who  have no time for making church children of any  sect. They are determined to make of them an  educated generation, devoted to their own nation, and not to a foreign potentate living on a  high hill by the River Tiber in Italy.  Now I have to say this from history: Even in  Quebec it is evident that the people are growing  tired of the rule of the church. And as surely as  the Rev. Bruchesi continues his present rule and  spirit so surely will large masses of the French  Canadians revolt and claim their personal, domestic, community and national freedom. And  right here comes the test. The church, through  its priests, says: We ask you in the name of the  Pope and the Church to follow us in religious  matters. For the rest you may do as you please.  This seems fairly good. But the definition of  what is religious and sacred takes in absolutely  all that belongs to human life and activity. Hence  in the last analysis the poor Frenchman finds that  he has nothing outside of the church, the priest  and religion. So he is held in thrall even against  his deepest convictions of freedom, right, and  the natural instincts of having something to say  and decide concerning his own life and that of  his family and nation. This is leading to a direct  and inevitable break as between the Frenchmen  of Canada and the Church that long has held  them in leash in all matters' outside and inside  religion.  Is   it   not a fact that when. England turned  against the Roman Church, the nation was largely  Roman in belief and custom?   Even King Henry  VIH. was so good a Catholic as to receive the  title of "Defender of the Faith."   The Pope of  Rome honored Henry with this title because he  was considered a valiant and worthy son of the  church.   But when the Pope and this same Henry  clashed about wives and home affairs, this " Defender of the Faith" and his Roman Catholic  .countrymen said to the Pope:    "Get thee gone.  Horror and night go with thee."    And in turn  *the Pope, who had so liberally blessed Henry,  turned upon the English king and cursed hie. like  (Continued on Page 4)  We are now in possession of the names of the appointees to the Greater Vancouver Sewerage Commission. '���������������������������/���������  Four have been named by the city and mupicipalities, as follows: Vancouver  City, Aid. S. J. Crowe; South Vancouver,; Councillor Campbell; Point Grey, Reeve  Churchill; Burnaby, Councillor Angus McDonald.  To the Provincial Government belonged the grave responsibility of naming  the chairman. It i* recognized by all that the chairman will be largely responsible  for the successful carrying out of the scheme. He should be a man of ripe experience, of sound judgment, and, above all, free from any influence which might  have a tendency to dictate. In fact, if this Commission is to be successful it must  assume its responsibilities and grapple with a big problem in a broad-minded manner. For this very important position the Provincial Government has named  Frank Bowser, with a salary of $5,000.00 per annum, who for the greater part of  his career was a customs landing waiter in; Vancouver. He is very well known here  and is highly respected; for a couple of years he was Reeve of Point Grey, and is  still a resident of that municipality, and' has always been a very loyal advocate  of the interests of his district. The f act th$rt he is a brother of the Attorney General has no bearing on tiie case whatever, providing he is capable to fill the position. It is to be regretted that some comment lias been made on this score, but, because a man is a brother of some other person in public office, should not debar him  from being appointed.  No doubt the Provincial Government in making this choice, was actuated by  a deep feeling for the public good and have secured one whom, in their estimation,  was by training and ability best fitted for the position.  The city has only one member on the Board, but fortunately he (Aid. S. J.  Crowe) is a man of exceptional merit. He knows more about the scheme than any  of the other members of the Board, having been associated with the movement  from its inception. From the moment the scheme was first conceived and introduced in the City Council by Mr. Stevens when alderman for Ward Five, Aid.  Crowe was a most enthusiastic supporter;/and he has given much valuable time  and careful thought to it. He is an outstanding member, and in his hands the  city's interests will be well safeguarded.  Now that the Commission is appointed, we expect "action" It is up to the  chairman to see that the interference of Engineer Thomson does not delay the work.  The lives of thousands of citizens are at stake wow, and undue delay may result in  an epidemic of typhoid in those sections drained by China Creek and the district  lying south-west of Kitsilano.  The Provincial Government has transferred its responsibility to the Commission and for the present its duty has been discharged, and the way is clear for the  active prosecution of the work by a properly constituted authority. It is, therefore, .now the plain duty of the Board to assert itself and act on the report of R.  S. Lea, the expert who has prepared the plans.  With many others, we shall watch with deep interest the progress made, and  endeavor to accurately chronicle the results from time to time.  MOKE mi M MW  With a Few Pointed Questions  Well Fred, we are pleased to know that you accepted our advice last week and  applied the slipper to your obstreperousoffiee boy, Jack the Squealer. This week  we ask you to reciprocate by giving us the benefit of your wide experience as an  eminent lawyer, politician, etc., chiefly etc. Mark you, we do not promise to follow  your advice or example. You will be able to thoroughly appreciate our question  because you were Crown Prosecutor, Clerk of Court, Registrar and Dominion  Lands Agent, all at the same time, in Dawson, under the Luarier Government,  about 1898.  Our first question is: Can a man holding a position as Registrar or Clerk of  Titles for the Government accept fees for private practice?  Our second question is: Would a fee of $10,000 be considered a fair retainer  for an eminent lawyer %  Our third: If a public official (representing the Government in similar positions  to those you did in the Yukon, for instance), knew of leases of public property being  negotiated to certain parties and being responsible, in part or altogether, for recom-  mending their acceptance, were to receive a retainer of $10,000 from the said parties on the day following the granting of lease, would "that act in your opinion be a  proper one on the part of such official1. Or \v, ould it be properly subject to that  very disagreeable appellation "graft?" ,  Now in order that these abstract questons may be clear to you, Fred, and to enable you to get a better estimate of their meaning, we will illustrate by recalling to  your memory an actual ease. We are very anxious to get your opinion on these  matters, because one with so large an experience and such an unblemished reputation as you have must necessarily be peculiarly fitted to give all unbiased opinion.  The case we refer to is that of Morrison and McDonald. Do you remember the  names? Well, these two men applied for a lease to certain property in Dawson  and secured*the same with the help, or rather with the recommendation of the Public Prosecutor, Registrar, etc., etc. They paid $2,500 per month and received in  revenue $7,500 per month, a profit of $60,000 in a year. This was ''good fishing,"  as the old saying goes, The day following the granting of the lease they paid the  above mentioned official $10,000 retainer,���������for other purposes of course \ You will  remember, Fred, you said in the subsequent investigation that the $10,000 had nothing to do with the issuing of the lease. Why there was a whole day elapsed between  the two transactions, so there could not possibly be any connection. But further,  was the Registrar, etc., etc., right in accepting any fee while holding public office?  EXTRACT FROM STATUTE  "Section 31 of the Title Act, 1894. No  Registrar cr Clerk in any Land Title office should  advise, for any fee or reward or otherwise, upon  Titles, to Land, nor practice as conveyancer, nor  should he carry on or transact within the Lands  Title office any business or occupation whatever  other than business as registrar or clerk.''  We trust you will answer our question, Fred, for old friendship's sake and not  charge us a fee of $10,000, even if you do consider your services to be so valuable.  Next week we will ask something about the ferry deal. Good-by, Fred. You had  better use the slipper on little squealing Jack about twice a week until we advise you  further.   It improves his manners and may even help make him manly.  jf^M^Wk  We have been criticized because in last week's  issue we dared to support the right of the coal  miners oil Vancouver Island to organize. It haa  been stated, and truthfully, that the union pro*  posed by these men was affiliated with the U. M.  W. of A., with headquarters in the United States,  and that we should not support any,, auch affiliation.  In the first place, nearly all the large unions in  Canada are affiliated with American associations.  Why should there be such strong objection to  this? A large number of the large industries  are so affiliated. The salmon canners of the Pacific Coast have the tightest combine on the continent. The copper interests are closely allied.  The oil industries of both countries are all controlled by same power, Rockefeller. The railway  companies on both sides of the line meet regularly and adjust tariffs. But the most significant  fact of all is that the Western Fuel Company, the  most heavily affected concern on the island, is an  entirely American company. Why, we ask, is. a  given action a sin when committed by workers,  but a virtue when done by employers! We fail  to recognize the point.  Then, again, the U. M. W. of A. have poured  into this province already over $300,000.00 in  strike wages. They pay each man $4.00, a wife  $3.00, and each child a $1.00 per week. This is  impossible with a local union, and without some  such fund the men are helpless.  We do not contend that the men ac.ted wisely  in all that they have done, but we do most emphatically state that they had extreme provocation, and' that now the responsibility for the continuance of the strike rests on the company.  WHY PEOPLE SHOULD OWN AND  BEAD BOOKS.  (By Thomas Martindale, author of Hunting  Books, and Merchant.)  '' To own for one's self a few good books, and to  carefully read them, is a privilege and an education that often times has made poor men vastly  famous. As an illustration, imagine, if you can,  what would have happened if the immortal "Abe"  Lincoln hadn't owned and read, and re-read the  books that he worked so hard for, before he could  call them his own. The world-famous Douglas-  Lincoln debates would never have taken place���������  I should say couldn't have taken place���������then Lincoln vwpnUJk.nQt Jiave. been "in the limelight,"  and'wouldn't' have received the nomination and  election as president of the United States.  It is one thing to get a book out of the public  library, and another to own one. The one must be  returned within a given tiine���������the other is yours  forever, to read as often as you like, when you  like, and where you like. A great portion of the  pleasure coming to me upon my annual hunting  trips is derived from the reading and re-reading  of the books of two authors���������Shakespeare and  John Burroughs.  I carry with me several of'Shakespeare's plays  bound in soft leather, and of Burroughs' works  in small-sized, paper-backed covers. Now, with  a copy of each in my coat pockets, I start out in  the very early morning, and when I sit down to  watch for game, or to eat, or to rest, one of the  books is opened aud eagerly read, and what is  more, it is mentally digested���������you cannot do that  with the book from the library. You must buy  your book and own it. See? There's the difference.  A library that you own contains "infinite riches  in a little room."  We are delighted to present to our readers the  above thoughts from the gifted pen of our esteemed friend, Thomas .Martindale, an author of  international fame. Mr. Martindale has written  valuable books'on Canada, and is now preparing  a historic- work on the Yukon.  Our personal opinion and experience coincide  with that so well expressed by this eminent maker  of hooks.  THE PROSPECT AT THE CANNERIES.  "Up to the present the salmon canners have  made arrangements for putting up iu British  Columbia this season 800,000 cases of sockeyes.  There will probably be at least 500.000 cases of  other A-arieties of salmon as well.  The largest salmon pack in the history of the  province was 1,236,156 cases in 1901. The year  1905 eauie next with 1,167,460. Last year the  total pack up to the time the last cohoe was caught  and put in a tin overcoat was 996,576 eases.  Last year the total of the cases of sockeyes  alone put up was 444.162. The preparations therefore indicate that the canners look for nearly  double the number of sockeyes this year than is  customary in the "lean" years."  JACK STILL BRAYING.  With his native vindictiveness and bitter jealous hatred, the editor of The Sun continues his  discordant braying about the member for Vancouver, with about the same effect as his prototype, the puppy, had when barking at the moon.

So impressed were  they with the increasing prosperity of  Grand Forks growers, that W. E. Lawrence and J. C. Bell, two Manitoba  farmers, have just made an initial investment of $4,000 in local orchard  property, which they intend placing  under cultivation as soon as they can  make the necessary arrangements. Mr.  Lawrence expresses the beljgf that  British Columbia now offers superior  advantages to fruit growers as compared with anything he has met in  any section of Canada.  Buy New 8choolground.  North Vancouver, July 18.���������At a  special meeting of the district of North  Vancouver School Board it was decided to purchase conditionally block  15, L.

The property is a little more  than four acres in extent, and is admirably located' for a school site,  which will necessarily be required in  a short time. The purchase is subject, however, to Mr. Fell accepting  district bonds at current rates or waiting until the school bonds are sold.

Moose Jaw, Sask.���������Amongst the  more urgent of the new industries that  are being advocated for Moose Jaw  are whoelsale hardware, drug and  stationery concerns, also a glove factory, a boojt and shoe factory, and a  wagon factory. Regarding the new  linseed oil plant, on which rapid progress is anticipated during the present building season, the outlook appears unusually favorable for the success of this enterprise from the start.  More flax is grown and handled in  the Moose Jaw district than in any  Other locality in North America; and  it is even shown that flax straw containing valuable fibre, is burned by  farmers to the extent of thousands of  tons annually, all of which could be  utilized with proper manufacturing  facilities. The new plant is to have a  grinding capacity of 7,000 bushels  daily.  ENDS OWN TORTURE  BY CUTTING THROAT  Engineer, Pinned  Under Locomotive,  Pleads Vainly for Death.

The submarine was practising outside the harbor when by a mistake all  of her tanks were filled simultaneously, and she sank to tbe bottom.

C���������Regarding the  present growth of Kamloops and other  prosperous towns of Southern British  Columbia, the statement of W. J.  Brandrith, provincial exhibition com  mlsBioner, is attracting wide attention.  The commissioner says that no other  portion of the province excels the  country around Kamloops, and that the  richness and resources of this district  merit in his opinion the highest praise.  The declaration is regarded as valuable from the fact that the speaker  ha������ a wide and detailed acquaintance  with the resources of British Columbia; while the position of Kamloops as  the leading market and distributing  centre for the extensive and prosperous territory in question is taken as  accounting largely for the development noted.

C.���������With increased railway  mileage and improved shipping and  marketing facilities as compared with  the situation of a year ago, Elko fruit  growers express, general confidence in  the outlook for record profits from this  year's crop. In apples, for instance, it  is pointed out that that is no overproduction in any leading fruit country,  nor has there been, the loss that occurred last- year in British Columbia  being due almost wholly to lack of  organized marketing facilities. With  the requirements of the prairie markets growing by leaps and bounds as a  result of increased population, the belief is general that no surplus production is likely in this section either  this season or for years to come.  Meanwhile, however, the sentiment  for organization among large and  small growers is gaining steadily in  favor.  Canada's Future  Canad's forest area is about 800,000,*  000 acres.  Canada possesses some six hundred  billion board feet of merchantable timber, worth perhaps ten billion dollars.  Canadians are cutting off this timber  at the rate of about 100 board feet per  acre, or eight billion board feet a  year. <  The fire loss is estimated to be 950  board feet per acre per annum.  We are allowing from fifty million  to two hundred million dollars worth  of this timber to burn up every year.  Worse than that, we are burning  young growth, forest litter and soil  fertility on hundreds of thousands of  acres. That means no timber in the  future for our children and children's  children. Forest fires, continued, make  deserts.  With the trees anc young growth go  the roots and soil cover, with their undoubted powers of holding water and  soil together. Floods come frm districts where the trees have been removed.  On the prairie, shelter belts and  woodlots are protecting crops, stock  and houses from the extremes of climate, and are providing the farmers  with fence posts and stringers.

(Continued from page 1)  a trooper. And the curse was hurled at the nation, at the empire, and hangs over the British  head today in the characteristic infallible fashion  of the infallible church.  Now, in spite of the above, I wish to say that  the Very Reverend Ablegate Stagni has strong  grounds for condemning the present Godless public school system of the day. Without going into  history of the cause of this Godless system, I shall  say a few words on what has been current history  in my life in English-speaking Canada.  When I was a lad, the good old English system  of reading the Scriptures, opening and closing the  schools With prayer, prevailed. The reading and  other books had much that taught reverence, and  naturally inclined the child's mind Godward. But  lp, and behold, a change came. The children of  Romans were gradually kept out of the Bible-  reading, and prayer-making ceremonies. This,  lead to other acts and demands. The Bible had  to go in the end, and prayer was so abridged that  it eit&er disappeared' or nearly vanished. And  this came from the priests, no doubt at the command of their masters. By the time this was  under way, a strong attempt was made to create  the pernicious system of seperate schools. As  time passed these schools were given within certain limitations. But these limits, one by one,  were removed until now in much of Canada tbis  double-barrelled plan of educating the young  Canadian nation has been established.  We have two sets of children, one in what may  be called the Godless public schools (the direct  result of the Roman Church), and the other a  system of filling the minds of the children with  pictures of saints, crucifixes and the Holy Pope;  but witb a poor quality of education. Tbe former  is a sort of godless education, and^the other an  education that lacks the fundamentals, but is prolific in the use of the images of things supposed  to be spiritual.  The president, Mr. Byrne, spoke like a true  man and a keen discerner between the Church  and State. He is right, and he has acted so in  public as to make those who know him believe  him when he says these two do not come into  conflict. In this Mr. Byrne stands where many  Roman Catholics stand. They know the place of  the church and honor it in its proper sphere. And  where the state has its realm they are there to  serve in a patriotic manner. Past history of the  British Empire shows clearly that hosts of Roman  Catholics have been absolutely loyal to the throne  and sovereign.  I have known President Byrne for long years,  and am sure that he voices a great truth, one  which many prominent Roman Catholics in Canada are in sincere agreement with, when he says  the church has its place; but the state has its, and  they do not come into conflict.  The president did well to emphasize this point  in the presence of the Reverend Ablegate Stagni.  It is time the Roman Catholic laity took an open  stand on this great and fundamental matter. In  proportion as they do they will remove considerable odium from the church, and also help the  priests who have not so clear a discernment of  difference between church and state as has President Byrne and many others of his church���������to  open their eyes to an important truth. Perhaps  they will govern themselves according to the principle involved as set out in the speech of President  Byrne.  Had we more men like him and others in Canada, such for instance as Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, who is a good Roman Catholic, and yet a  strong Imperialist, and absolutely devoted to the  highest principles of national government.  The time is coming when the Roman Catholics  will demand from the interfering priests a national system of education, and a limitation of  their activities to purely religious duties. And  there are some such priests, even now, but they  are not the majority.  SOUTH VANCOUVER AFFAIRS.  The agitation now being carried on jn South  Vancouver by certain parties can have only one  effect, which is to injure the reputation of the  municipality, without in any way contributing;  towards a remedy for the various evils, real or  imaginary. South Vancouver, like many other  municipalities, has been the victim of unscrupulous and ignorant men who have secured  positions on the several public boards; but it  does not follow that all her public men are of  this type. In fact, some truly public-spirited men  have made great sacrifices for South Vancouver,  and these men have been indiscriminately condemned by certain self-appointed critics.  That there is room for criticism along a few  lines goes without question, but this wholesale  reckless condemnation is doing irreparable  damage to the district. Let us exercise somei  degree of sanity in our attacks and only condemn  practices which we have good reason to believe  are intentionally wrong, and then follow it up to  the point of correction.  What South Vancouver needs at this tinpe is  an "esprit de corps" among the citizens���������loyalty  to the best interests of the whole district���������a  unity of purpose with a determination to exploit  its great natural advantages to the benefit of all.  As long as there are indiscriminate and  vindictive attacks on public men there will be a  dearth of suitable candidates for office. Now is  the time to work together, leaving severe criticism and destructive attacks to the time of  elections. When that time comes let every effort  be made to induce strong men to come forward.  Fifty Girls Die  In Shop Fire Trap  Scores of Traped Victims Are Burned  Alive.  Binghampton, N. Y., July 22.���������Fifty  persons were killed, according to late  estimates, and as many Injured, a dozen mortally, in a fire which swept the  four-storey factory building of the  Binghampton Clothing Company Tuesday afternoon. The victims chiefly  were women and,girls.  At midnight twenty-six bodies had  been recovered. In the city hospital  and in private institutions are thirty  injured. Some two score persons are  known to have escaped as by a miracle  from the building, which burst into  flame like a tinder box and became a  roaring furnace almost immediately  after the first alarm was sounded.  About 125 persons were in the factory when the fire broke out. Those  unaccounted for, or most of them, are  believed still to be ln the red hot ruins  of the structure.  Seeking th* Bodies.  Around the scene Of the fire district, the greatest the city haa ever  known, thousands watched the workers in the glare of three big searchlights, many in the great throng being  restrained only, by the closely drawn  police from rushing into the ruins to  seek the bodies of relatives or friends.  It will take at least two days, the  authorities believe, before the cellar  can be cleared and the whole truth be  known.  In tbe tragedy the killing burst of  flame followed quickly upon the heels  of the alarm. There was small opportunity for anyone to use the ordinary,  or even the emergency means of escape. Fire drills had been carried on  regularly, so frequently, in fact, that  the employees had found them monotonous. The building was equipped  with fire escapes and an automatic  alarm system. The alarm rang at 2:30  o'clock.  Fire Escapes Too Small.  The flre escapes were not large  enough to bold all who rushed madly  to the exits, and there was a dash for  the windows, the trapped victims  screaming with pain as the flatneB  swept upon them from behind.

New Westminster. ��������� Shortly after  seven o'clock Tuesday evening John  McNamara was found guilty at the  Assizes of the theft of the Trapp automobile on the morning ot the robbery  of the Bank of Montreal, September  15, 1911. Sentence was reserved until the end of the Assizes. As the article stolen was over the value of  $200, the maximum penalty is nine  years' imprisonment. McNamara had  followed the evidence throughout the  seven days of the trial with close interest, but had shown no sign of nervousness until tbe jury returned with  the verdict after being cut about two  hours.  During tbe summing up of Mr. Justice Morrison, he had abandoned his  carefree attitude of leaning his head  lightly on the index finger of his left  hand, and with the jury back showed  marked eagerness, but said nothing  and smiled as he left for the cells.  Charge Reduced.  Before the jury retired his Lordship  had instructed them, on the law, that  the car was not taken from the curtilage of the residence of Mr. Trapp, and  this, therefore, reduced the charge,  which was tantamount to burglary, to  that of theft. The maximum sentence  under the origfnal charge was seven  years.  Already fortified with the legal objection that the jury had been empan-  ailed under a Jurors' Act, which, it  was claimed, expired on July 1, Sir  Charles Hibbert Tupper immediately  submitted that the charge of theft  could not be sent to the jury in this  case.  "In the case o^,a prisoner extradited  from a foreign country under the provisions of a treaty," urged counsel for  defence, "''it has been settled for some  time without any question that he can  be charged and tried only for the exact offence for which he was extradited. The accused was extradited for  the offence of burglary and I submit  your Liordship cannot commit the  prisoner to the jury on the charge of  theft."  The point was overruled, but will be  I carried to appeal with the other points  raised.  Raspberries for Preserving  If you want Good Fruit for Preserving  Buy them early.

Under the Fruit Marks Act all Canadian shippers of fruits have been  compelled tb comply -with its requirements. This British Columbia growers bave faithfully and cheerfully  done, though Imported fruit coming  In direct competition with us was allowed to be sold without hindrance  without in any way complying with  the law. Thts situation created a condition of unfair competition which the  Dominion Government recognized, and  in 1912 endeavored on our representations, to remove; in this they were  unsuccessful because the did not apply tp imported fruit, and even if it  bad, there was no adequate provision  for its enforcement against foreign  shippers.  The B. C. Fruit Growers' Association, at its last annual meeting ln January, passed a strong resolution citing  the injustice and unfairness under  which our Industry was laboring and  asking the Dominion Government to  formulate regulations, making it incumbent on foreign shippers to comply with our Fruit Marks Act before  the packages were allowed in Canada.  A committee composed of W. S. Foggo  of Vernon and Thomas Abriel of Na  kusp, and the secretary nt the association, proceeded to Ottawa in Febru-.  ary to press this and other matters  before the Dominion Government.  The Honorable Martin Burrell, minister ot agriculture, and member for  Yale-Cariboo, met them in a most helpful spirit and gave them all possible  assistance; he fully recognized the injustice in the Fruit Marks Act and  had legislation prepared to remedy it.  The bill secured precedence in the  House over many others which were  dropped, and despite the crowded and  contentious character of the session  and some opposition, the bill was  passed.  Under the bill, as passed, the Gov-  ernor-in-Council had power to make  regulations and these were duly published, and so given the force of the  law, in the "Canada Gazette" of July  5.   They read as follows:  "His Excellency the Administrator  in Council is pleased to order that the  following Regulations shall be and the  same are hereby made and established  under the provisions of section 320 A  of The Inspection and Sale Act:  1. In these Regulations:  (a) "importer" means the person,  firm or corporation in Canada to whom fruit from outside of Canada, is sold, shipped,  consigned or  delivered.  (b) "fruit" means apples, crab  apples, pears, plums and  peaches when shipped in  closed packages.  (c) "inspector" means an inspector employed by the Department of Agriculture of Canada to enforce the provisions  of Part IX of the Inspection  and Sale Act, chapter 85, Revised Statutes of Canada,  1906, and the Regulations  made thereunder.  2. No fruit shall be imported into  Canada except as hereinafter provided.  3. Every importer of fruit, or his  representative shall cause all grade  marks found on closed packages containing imported fruit to be completely removed, erased or obliterated,  when such grade marks are different  to, or inconsistent with the marking  Or branding required by sections 320  and 321 of The Inspection and Sale  Act, or section 4 of these Regulations.  Every importer of fruit, or his  Eight Japanese       ;  Land on Coast       '      ���������-������������������:    \  A junk with twenty-one contraband  Orientals on board put off a number  who were captured and brought here.  Seattle was the skippers destination.  Canadian and American fisheries'  cruisers chased vessel which escaped.  Following upon a series of dramatic  Incidents, eight Japanese ex-soldiers  arrived in Vancouver yesterday morning, in custody, on board the steamship Camosun, after being abandoned  to their fate at Bella Bella by the  skipper of a 45-foot Japanese junk,  which had brought them across the  Pacific under sail with a view of  smuggling them into the United StateB.  The Japanese skipper, whose name  is given as Kamesabure Yoshida, is  not in cuBtody, nor is his junk, but  there is every prospect that both will  be shortly, as they are probably sailing somewhere along the Pacific coast  with American and Canadian fishery  cruisers after them, the authorities of  both countries having been notified of  the extraordinary performance and  probable whereabouts. The captain  haB with him the remainder of the  Japanese ex-soldiers, and, if he has  not been caught, has probably tried to  land them somewhere upon the American coast  Regrets Expressed.  The assistant to the Japanese consul (Mr. Hori) at Vancouver, in conversation, was emphatic In his regret  at the occurrence and ln his assurance that this must be the private enterprise of an adventurer and not part  of Ma organised attempt to land Jap*  ansae soldiers unlawfully upon Canadian or American shores.  4.  representative, shall cause all- closed  packages containing such imported  fruit to be marked or branded in a  plain and legible manner, in letters  and figures not less than an inch long,  and in the following form:  (Place here the (Place here the  proper grade correst name  marks.) of the variety.)  Imported by   .  (Insert bere the name and  address  of  the   importer.)  5. The removal, erasure or obliteration of original grade mark or brands  on closed packages containing imported fruit and re-marking or branding of  said closed packages to conform with  the provisions of The Inspection and  Sale Act aB required by these Regulations, shall be done at the time when  the   said  packages  are  being  taken  from the railway car, steamship or  other conveyance in which they bave  been brought into Canada.  6. The marks or brands specified in  section 4 of these Regulations shall be  placed on the end of the packages."  The association has just received a  letter from Mr. J. A. Ruddick, Dairy  and Cold Storage Commissioner, who  is charged with the enforcement of the  Fruit Marks Act, saying that a circular is in the hands of the printers for  distribution. This circular makes public the provisions of the law, whicb  must now be obeyed by the importer  under the penalties of the Act.  It should be a matter of congratulation to British Columbia fruit growers  that this unfairness has been removed.  We are confident that the change will  assist materially in securing for our  fruit a market at a fair price. The  success of tbe B. C. Fruit Growers' Association In this matter will be of  benefit to all the fruit growers of Canada and should greatly encourage us  to improve the conditions of the industry in other ways.  R. M.

Printers' Congress  Held at Seattle  Vancouver May Have Congress Next  Year���������'Frisco Gets It For  1915.  The session of the Pacific Coast  Printers' Cost Congress, which convened at Seattle from July 14 to 17,  was one of the most successful in the  history of thiB progressive body of  men. Vancouver was well represented  and efforts are now being made to  secure the congress here next year.  The attendance was not limited to the  Pacific coast, for there were men from  Galveston, for the southeast and  New York City in the east. Although  the session was full of business and  lots bf good hard work for everyone,  the social part was not overlooked.  While the men were being entertained  at the Press Club with a drama of  much merit, the ladies were being  dined at the New Washington, followed by auto rides over- Seattle's boulevards. Thursday was given to pleasure entirely, when four hundred strong  went by special boat and train to visit  tbe Everett paper mill. The congress  was closed with a ball at Christenson.  Mr. Joe Anderson of Sacramento  was elected president for the coming  year; Mr. J. D. Rountree, San Francisco, vice-president; Mr. R. A. Bindon, Vancouver, secretary-treasurer;  Messrs. Joseph Borden, Spokane,  Harry S. Stuff, Seattle and Chester A.  Whitermore, Portland, Oregon, constitute the executive committee.  A woman's work is never done unless 'tis .done  the Hot Point way.

One can scarcely give credence to  the fact tbat an intelligent government, as we supposed ours to be,  could pass an amendment to the  Public School Act in March of this  year, ln which section 38, paragraph  2, reads thus:  "In district municipality school districts^ any person being a male British  subject . . . and being otherwise  qualified by this Act to vote at an  election of scbool trustees in the said  school district, shall be eligible to be  elected or to serve as a school trustee  in such district municipality school  district."  In the revised statutes of British  Columbia of 1911 these words "being  a male British subject" did not occur.  Section 38, paragraph 2, that year read  any person who was a British subject  and fulfilling the conditions imposed  (without reference to sex at all) being  eligible for office as a school trustee  in country districts, so that by this  later foolish enactment, a large proportion of the motherhood of the nation are debarred from their prerogative, 1. e., a voice in the matter of the  education of their own children.  Moreover, we are informed that never  before in the history of the province  was it so essential from a moral viewpoint that the mother should exercise  a judicious and direct oversight in the  election of school officials and the environment of her boys and girls.  Mothers, you should enter a protest  against this retrograde act.  T. S. HALL.  NOTICE  Ernest Shaw, D.C.  CHIROPRACTOR  Has removed his office  to  Suite 307, Lee Bldg.

MYliAI>Y  of Doubt  *ffte-\NEflLL  PARRISH  JHm&mfrftDMTttBt  CHAPTMH ft  A Perilous Mission,  Several of us had remained rathe*  late that evening about tha cheerful  fat |a front of my hufc-**-*tor th ��������� nights  ware still chilly, although it wat Mar,  and the dreadful winter -paeted*���������dls*  sussing the Improved condition of oar  troops, the rigid discipline of Baron  dt Steuben, and speculating on what  Would probably be attempted now  that 8lr Henry Clinton had succeeded  to the command of the forces oppos*  Ing us. I remember Maxwell joined  oi, together with Knox of tho artil*  levy, each man with a different theory  of campaign, but alike agreeing that,  In spite of all we had endured during  those months of suffering and priva-  tion at Valley Forge, the time to  strike once again was near at hand,  although our numbers were barely  half that of the enemy.  It must have been midnight when I  crept Into a bunk, and even then  found sleep absent, my eyes gating  ont through the open door to where  the embers of the fire'glowed red, and  a sentinel paced back and forth in  regular monotony. Suddenly he halted, and challenged hoaraely, flinging  forward his gun. There was an indistinguishable answer, and as I straightened up the figure Of a man blotted  out the doorway.  "Major Lawrence V  "Yes. What is lt?" I swung to the  floor, unable to. recognise the voice.  The man's hand rose to salute.  "I am Colonel Gibba' orderly. General Hamilton wishes you to report  at once at headquarters."  "The Potts house?"    v  "Yes. sir."  I dressed! hastily, my pulses throbbing with eagerness. -Whatever   the  message meant, there was certainly  some purpose of vital importance in  sending for me at this unusual hour,  and I was boy enough still to welcome  any form of active service.   No duty  of the war had so tried me as the long  winter of waiting.   Yet, rapidly as I  moved, the orderly had disappeared  before I got outside, and l picked my  way as beat I could alone through tbe  darkness, along tbe rear of Mcintosh's  huts, until I reached'tbe low fence sur-  runding the potts house.  Hsiw a sentinel challenged, calling the corporal  of the guard, and In his company I  trudged up the path to the front door.  Tbere was a light showing through  jthe window to the left, although the  (shade was closely drawn, and a guard  stood within the hall.   At tha first  isound of our approach, hbwever/a tide  (door was flung open, letting forth a  {gleam of illumination, and I perceived  [the short, slight figure of Hamilton,  ps he peered forward to get a better  jgtlmpse of my face.  JV'Ail right, corporal," he said terse*  )7, gripping my hand*  "Come in. ma?  dor; your promptness would teem to  Indicate a readiness to get Into serv-  fca once more."  I "I had not yet fallen asleep," I explained, "but we are all eager enough  for action of any description."  He smiled cheerily.  I Tou will soon be busy, never tBar."  lie closed the door behind us, and,  with a glance, I viewed the room and  its oocupants. it was a small, low  jcelllnged   apartment,   containing   a  hie, a few chairs and a high comedo.   A few coals glowed tn   the  lde fireplace, and the walls were  dingy with smoke. Three candles, al*  [ready burning low, gave fitful illumination, revealing four occupants, all  known to me. At an open door to the  right stood a sweet-faced woman,  glancing back curiously at my en*  tranoe, and I whipped off my hat bowing low. Once before I had seen her,  Mistress Washington, and welcomed  the gracious recognition in her eyes.  Colonel-Gibbs stood before the fireplace motionless, but my glance swept  past him to the calm, uplifted face  above the pile of papers littering the  table. He was not looking at me, but  his eyea were turned toward his wife.  'Tt is not necessary for you to retire," he said quietly. "We. shall not  detain this gentleman except for & few  moments."  It is not because of the major's  coming I withdraw," ahe replied pleasantly, "but the hour is late, and I am  rery tired.   Good night, all."  Washington's eyes were upon the  door until lt closed; then he turned  slightly, facing me. Before he spoke  again, Hamilton broke in:  "This is the officer, sir, recommended by General Maxwell���������Major Lawrence of the Maryland line."  I bowed silently, and the commander rose to his feet, extending his hand.  "No doubt we have met before," he  said slowly. "You have been with us  for some time?"  "Mr first action was at Harlem,  sir."  .. "You could not have been at Valley  Forge during the past winter, however?"  "I was with the Marquis de la Fayette at Albany."  [ "Ah. yes," his face clouding at the  |tior  naooUeotlon. "A young ofloer, Bu_0>  ten, but capable, no doubt Ton have  used him before, yoa saidf"  "Yes, at Long Island, aad ha em*  tared New York onoa at ay request*  Washington's gray, ayes were still  on my face.  "Lawrence la m llaasaohusetta  name."  i  "Not exclusively,** t returned, ta  our branch are Virginians.-*  t  The stern lines about tha month  relaxed into a smile.  |   Indeed;   from tha eastern shore,  then.   I recall now having once met  [a Judge John Lawrenoe, whose wife  was a Lee."  \. "My father, sir."  j His hand rested firm on my shoul*  ;der, as his glance turned to Hamilton.  "I require no  further  commenda-  in, colonel. You will find the papers  tin the second drawer. Please explain  Jail the details carefully to Major Law-  irence."  : "This ls a simple duty, major," said  [Hamilton, "but may prove a dangerous  one. You have been selected because  of previous successful efforts of a  similar nature, but the commander-in-  chief does not order your going; we  seek a volunteer."  j -"Without asking the nature of the  jservlce," I answered sincerely, "I rejoice at the privilege."  ��������� "I knew that, Lawrence," heartily.  "That answer accords with your well*  learned reputation throughout the  [army. I will explain briefly the sltua-  I .tion. Early this evening our pickets���������-  for rather some partisan scouts near  j Newtown���������captured a British offlcer,  . In Held uniform, on hla way from New  York to Sir William Howe in Philadelphia. The prisoner was brought here,  and on examination 'proved to be  Lieut Edgar Fortesque of the Forty-  second regiment of foot These troops  came over with tbo last detachment  and arrived in New York less than a  month ago. On searching Fortesque's  clothing we found this dispatch," hold*  ing out a sealed paper, "which we  opened. It Is not of any great military, importance, being merely an order for Howe to proceed at once to  New York, taking with him certain  officers of bis staff, and placing a naval vessel at his disposal."  He paused, turning tha paper over  in his hands.  "However," he went on slowly, "it  affords us the opportunity we have  long been seeking of getting a competent military observer into Philadelphia* Now that Sir Henry Clinton Is  in command of the British forces directly opposing us, it Is necessary  .that we know accurately their number, state of discipline, guns and any  point of weakness in the defences of  the city. We require also information  regarding the division of troops under  Sir Henry's command���������the proportion  of British, Hessians'and Tories, together with some inkling as to Clinton's Immediate plans. There Is a  rumor abroad that Philadelphia is to  be evacuated, and that tba British  forces, contemplate a retreat overland  to New York. Civilian fugitives drift  Into our camp constantly, bearing all  manner of wild reports, but these accounts are so varied at to be practically valueless. Wa must possess  accurate details, and to gain these a  man would need to be In tha dty several days, free to mora about* ob*  "No Doubt We Have Met Before."  serve, and converse with the officers  of the garrison. Do I make myself  clear?"  "Yes, sir; you propose forwarding  the dispatch by an officer who shall  Impersonate this captured lieutenant"  "Exactly. Fortesque is a young fellow of about your age and build. He  has been ln the army only eight  months and in this country less than  thirty days. It ls scarcely probable  he Is known personally to any of the  present Philadelphia garrison. There  Is a risk, of course, but In this case  it would seem to be small." He picked  up a paper from off tbe table. "Here  ls an officer's roster of the forty-second regiment It might be well for  you to familiarize yourself with a few  of the names."  I studied the list a moment bending  down closer to the nearest candle,  while rapidly reviewing In my   own  mind thee duty required. X had no  thought of refusal, yet appreciated to  the full the possible danger of the venture, and felt anxious to make no serious mistake. I had achieved a reputation for reckless daring, yet this  jkind of aervioe was hardly to'my llk-  !lng. To wear British uniform meant  mj condemnation as a spy. If discovered, and a death of disgrace. I had  been within the lines of tbe enemy  often before, but always as a scout,  wearing the homespun of the Mary-  Hand Una, but this was to be a masquerade, a juggling with chance. I  was not greatly afraid of being unmasked by the officers of tbe garri*  Ison, but there were those then in Phil-  iadclphla who knew me���������loyalists, se-  iarot sympathisers with our cause, and  tnot a few deserters from the army���������  jjwhoia I might encounter at say turn  In tho road. The prospect was not al*  purlng, yet a glance aside at tha pro*  iflle of Washington, now bending low  fever a mass of papers, instantly stif-  {Betted my resolve. It was work I bad  (ao excuse to shirk���������Indeed no lncllna*  1tioa���������so I returned Hamilton's glance  jot Inquiry frankly.  I "You wish me to go at onoef*  ; "The earlier the better. I will fur*  jnlsh passports through our lines, and  hard riding will put you across tha  {neutral ground by daylight"  CHAPTER II.  Within the fensmy*a Lines.  A long cavalry cape concealing tho  British uniform I wore, my horse and  'myself were ferried across the Schuylkill, just below the mouth of Valley  creek, and there, amid tbe silence and  darkness of the eastern shore, I parted with Hamilton, who had accompanied me thus far, whispering final  (words of instruction. My horse was a  fresh one, chosen from the stables of  the Life Guard, but the trappings were  of the British service. Within five  minutes I waa out of sight, ot the  picket flre on the river bank, riding  steadily southeast through the night  every nerve alert An hour's "riding  (found me well beyond our outermost  pickets, yet, in fear that I might encounter some body ot Irregulars, scout*  ing the neutral ground, I held on to  jmy passport until I perceived the first  flush of dawn in the east Then, convinced of close proximity to the British guard lines, I tore tha paper Into  (fragments. Avoiding all roads, and  seeking every bit of concealment possible, lt was already sunrise before I  plunged suddenly Into a Hessian  iplcket post, the distant smoke ot the  Philadelphia chimneys darkening the  Sky ahead. Unable to speak German,  !my uniform won sufficient courtesy, so  that I waa escorted back under guard  to an outpost of tha Queen's Rangers,  where I explained my pretence and  rank to a red-faced captain in Tory  green, so insolent in manner aa to be  insulting, until I exhibited the sealed  dispatch, and demanded to be escort*  ed at once to Sir William Howe. This  brought results, and I entered tbe city  under escort of a dosen horsemen,  their green coats faced with dingy  white, cocked bats flapping as tbey  rode.  It was thus we came to Csllowhill,  and the encampment of British grenadiers, an officer of the Fifty-fifth regiment volunteering to guide me to  Howe's quarters in High street He  was a genial fellow, and pointed out  various places of interest as we rode  more slowly through tbe streets close  along tbe river side, questioning me  often upon affairs in New York, to  which I returned such vague answers  as pleased me, paying small heed to  the truth. All along the river were  redoubts, well garrisoned, with black  fun muzzles pointing out across tbe  water. Many houses bad been rased,  and their debris, together with the  fire ruin of tbe past winter, gave to  everything a look of desolation. Much  artillery was parked in the state house  yard, and several vessels of war were  lying at anchor ln the stream, while  the entire shore Una was filled wttb  barges, decorated as for a fete, a large  force of men laboring about them. My  companion, observing my interest attracted in that direction, reined up  ibis horse to explain.  "Those sre the galleys being made  ready for the Mtschtsnss, Fortesque,"  jhe said, waving bis bsnd. "You came  ta us at a lucky hour."  "The Mlschianta?" I asked, pussled  by the strange term. "Some festival,  you mean?���������some gala day?"  "Tis an Italian word, they tell me,  signifying medley. The officers give  lt ln farewell to Sir William, who will  sail tomorrow. A pretty penny It  coats. 8ee, there ls Major O-Hara  now, one of the managers; there are  three others. Sir John Wrotttesly, Major Gardiner, and the chief engineer,  Montresor. Do you know them? No?  Oh, I had forgotten you have only just  arrived. You will know them ere long,  however, for they are the leaders ln  such affa|rs. That ls Captain Andre  there with O'Hara." He waved hla  hand, and the younger offlcer lifted his  cocked hat in acknowledgment "Let  ua spur over there, lieutenant until I  get you a ticket ot Invitation."  I followed, careless of the loss of  time so I could both see and hear.  "Andre, this is Lieutenant Fortesque just in from New York with  dispatches for Howe. I bsve promised bim a ticket tor tonight."  The young officer laughingly extended a hand.  "The more the merrier, Craig. With  the Forty-second I see, sir; knew your  colonel well. Youll find America isn't  so bad, after you get used to lt. We've  had a gay time here, eh, O'Hara? The  best of liquor, and the prettiest of  girls, and now well show the town  something lt won't forget ln a hurry."  He held out a card to me. "Rather  ornate, considering the printers in  these colonies; designed lt myself."

Over 1,200 wood-using Industries in  Ontario contributed the data for a bulletin on this industry npw, being issued  by the Forestry Branch, Ottawa/  Thirty-four different kinds of wood  are being used by these Industries and  the detailed information regarding the  various uses to which such woods are  put/should be of considerable value,  not only to the manufacturer by showing new means of waste disposal, but  also to the householder by indicating  what, "native woods are best fitted to  replace the more expensive imported  stock for interior decoration, furniture  and flooring.  The bulletin also shows incidentally  the increasing poverty of Ontario with  regard to the more valuable work*  woods. Almost half of the thirty-four ,  kinds of wood used are obtained principally from outside sources and three  and one-half million dollars are annually sent out of the province for imported wood stock. The imported oak  alone costs $1,610,000 annually, for this  tree has become commercially extinct  In Ontario, while the hickory and  chestnut groves of Southern Ontario  bave also almost entirely disappeared.  Even good clear white pine la becoming hard' to obtain and ita market  value is steadily rising, for it represents twenty-one per cent of the total  wood consumption tn Ontario for Industrial purposes.  Of more interest to the small consumer of wood-products are the sidelights tbe bulletin throws on tbe possibility ot substituting cheap homegrown woods for the expensive foreign  species now used so extensively. Recent tests made of tbelr physical properties have demonstrated the suitability for certain purposes of many native specleB, hitherto despised by the  dealers. For hardwood flooring, in  place ot the oak and maple now ln  general use, may be substituted the  home-grown birch and beech, which  take a high polish and have the advantage of being considerably cheaper.  Likewise, for interior finishing, the  expensive oak eaa be very closely imitated by stained black ash, and stained  birch is almost Indistinguishable from  mahogany, while stained red gum requires an expert to distinguish lt from  the costly Circassion walnut. The now  expensive white pine is being replaced,  where durability is not a requisite, by  tbe cheaper spruce, bass wood and elm.  Poplar and balsam-fir are two of the  most common trees in Ontario, and  that they have wider uses Is evident  from the fact that poplar is highly  valued for hardwood flooring ln Manitoba, while balsam-fir ia perhaps tbe  most widely used native species in tbe  Maritime Provinces.  The bulletin also indicates the existence of a market in Ontario for  sumac, apple and cherry logs. The  lumber cut from them being worth  $30, $46.50. and 44.50 per thousand feet  board measure -respectively. The Forestry Branch has already been Instrumental In securing sales for the wood  of worn-out apple orchards and is desirous of further serving the public  along these lines. The bulletin on tbe  Wood-using Industries of Ontario can  be had gratis from the Forestry  Branch, Department of the Interior,  Ottawa. A similar report dealing with  the Maritime Provinces will appear  shortly.  GRANDVIEW METHODIST  EPWORTH LEAGUE  Pastoi-���������Rev. F. G.

Estimates of the numbers of farm  live stock in Canada at June 30 are  given as follows: Horses, 2,535,000;  milch1 cows, 3,064,900; other cattle,  .,380,400; sheep, 2,418,400; swine,  3,254,400.
