H. H. STEVENS, M.P., Editor-in-chief.  VANC0UVER,-Briti6h Columbia   AUGUST 8, 1913.  No. 13  s.  B. C. FISHERIES LAW UNFAIR  The Laurier Government made a Return to Barbarism, Killed Competition.     Under the Exis  w Freedom Impossible.  THE NEW ZEALAND  This-battle -cruiser, which is the lapt word in  naval construction, is the gift of New Zealand  to the British Navy. The crew are all Britishers,  with the exception of four men who are New  Zealanders, having joined the navy before their  plucky little island home made this magnificent  contribution.  The New Zealand is an armoured battle cruiser  of most modern type, developing 45,000 horsepower and capable of a speed of thirty-one miles  per hour. She carries a crew of 800 men and  cost over ������2,000,000. Her armament consists of  four turrets, with two twelve-inch guns in each,  or. eight guns each capable of firing a projectile  weighing over 800 pounds three times in a minute, or a broadside of 6,400 pounds every twenty  seconds; in other words, these guns alone can discharge 24 tons of steel a distance of several miles  each minute.  In addition to these heavy guns she carries a  large number of smaller guns and the latest thing.,  in torpedoes, which will destroy at a distance of  three miles. To work this great ship there is a  crew of 800 men, and. during action all these  men are protected by heavy armour.  The ship is steered from below and all guns  are sited from ,there. Each of the gun turrets  is served by 50 men, and all the guns moved by  hydraulic power.  She has 31 large boilers to keep up steam for  the huge 45,000 horsepower turbine engines. She  may be used both for cruiser purposes, such as  scouting and decoying the enemy, and upon re-  joining the main fleet she takes her place in line  of battle, being almost equal to the heaviest  dreadnaiight. In short, as already stated, she is ,  the very last word in modern battleships.  To New Zealand belongs the' great honor of  contributing this mighty fighting machine, and  what an object lesson t<r those who have placed  themselves in the way of Canada doing her duty  iu this regard. "���������"���������" ���������"��������� -    "-.;  GREATER VANCOUVER SEWERAGE.  The Sewerage Commission has been named over  two weeks but as yet the chairman has not seen  fit to call a meeting. At least not up to the time  of writing.  The citizens expect"this commission to get busy  and justify its cxistance. It is up }o the chairman to act, and we trust the first step taken'will  be to ratify the course pursued by R. S. Lea, the  expert engineer, and put the quietus upon that  upstart Thomson from Seattle, who has attempted  to poison the public mind againsjt Mr. Lea.  A more outrageous insult to the intelligence of.  the electorate eould scarcely be conceived than  was the report of the Provincial Government of  this American Engineer. If we as citizens, or if  the commission, allow this fellow Thomson to  have his way in this matter, we deserve to suffer  all the inevitable consequences which must result  from accepting his advice.  Mr. R. S. Lea, who was engaged to formulate a  scheme, is the most eminent drainage engineer in  Canada and a recognized authority, while Thomson of Seattle, who was employed by the Province to check his report, is not an eminent engineer at all and in no wise fitted to criticise a  report made by R. S. Lea. In fact, he has not  dared to attack the principles laid down by Lea,  but only to insinuate that Lea was not capable.  He is a meddler and should be put in his proper  place. There are a dozen engineers in Vancouver  who are far more capable than Thomson and who  could be retained to check the plans.  WADE THE PHILANTHROPIST.  Well, Fred, you have failed to answer our questions. Were they too pointed? Did they touch a  sore spot in your memory ? Now, Fred, what do  you really think of an employee of the Government who would accept a $10,000 fee from applicants for a Government lease, which lease must  pass through the hands of such employee?  Would you call it "philanthropy?"  The Sun, the official Liberal organ, advocates  the policy of turning over our fisheries without  reserve to the tightest food combine on this continent, the canning interests. They support Bell-  Irving and his Japanese fishermen���������they condemn  all white fishermen���������and openly oppose all efforts  to encourage white men and a free chance to fish  A DISGUSTING PRACTICE.  A large number of Japanese fishermen who are  plying their trade out of our city, make a practice of catching codfish up the coast and keeping  them alive in tanks of water. These poor fish  literally rot away alive. One may go to the waterfront on almost any day and on board these Jap  fishing boats find this state of affairs. Not only  is it a menace to public health but is a barbarous  practice and should be stopped.  About three years ago the medical health officer, under instructions from the committee, seized  and destroyed a lot of these fish. The time is  ripe for another raid.  B. C. FISHERIES  ' In a speech at Ganges Harbor recently Mr. Stevens referred to the Fisheries  question and through the Liberal organ the cannery-interests made a vicious attack  on the member, seeking to make party capital thereby.  The Fisheries question is not a party question. It is a problem which deals  with one of the most vital assets of the Dominion, therefore the public interests  are affected. Now it is clear that the cannery men are.spoiling for a fight and expect by allying themselves with the Liberal party here that they will be successful  in defeating any public man who dares to favor public rights when it conflicts with  their selfish interest. In all probability these gentlemen will have all the fight they  want before this matter is dropped.  In his evidence before the Labor Commission, H. Bell-Irving said that the ...  reason they, the cannery-men, hired Japanese was because they were better workmen than the whites. From his narrow, self-interested standpoint this may be true,  but lioiv near to the whole truth is this statement? Are the Japanese better fishermen than whites? If so, what class of whites is referred to I When Mr. Bell- *  Irving made that statement he knew that he made a "mental reservation" in using  " Ihe word "whites;" by whites he meant the transient trash who have no stake in  'the community, nor any net or boat. He knows perfectly well that his policy and  that of his associates has been to secure control of boats and nets, thus enabling,  them to better control the men. He knows, also, that Japanese fishermen do not  compare favorably with white fishermen. He knows, too, that the Japs were introduced because of the strike of white men in 1904 and because they could be handled  with greater ease. .J  No one objects to the Canner making money, but we do object to him making  fortunes atthe expense of good citizenship (in the fishermen)and of public inter-  : estsx ''" ��������� ���������.' N ���������'.��������� ���������''���������*-������������������  It is, however, in Northern B. C. that one may witness the workings of the  most blatant food trust which exists on this continent. The cannery interests, or  at least some of them, induced both the Provincial and Dominion Governments a  few years ago to inaugurate a system called "Boat Bating," whereby each cannery  was'allotted a certain number of boats. This was done under the gyise of " protecting the fish," but in reality it was conceived with one object only ��������� to protect  the Canner, and it worked to perfection until recently H. S.) Clements, M*P., and  H. H- Stevens, M.P., have been audacious enough to attack its justice and utility.  This "boat-rating" scheme made it necessary for each applicant for a fishing  license to present, to the Government Inspector issuing the license, a contract with.  some cannery for his whole season's catch. In other words, before one could get  the right to fish one was compelled to agree to sell the fish caught at a given price  to one-man, thus eliminating all chance of competition, all opportunity of a raise in  the market and.virtually making the fisherman a serf of the Canner. That is not  all, by this iniquitous regulation. The Government becomes a collecting agency for  .* the Canner. "What right has any Government to demand that a fisherman shall  contract for the season with a banner before he can receive a license? Positively  none. This regulation is a reversion to barbarism and we defy any public man in  B. C. to defend it before the electorate. It was conceived in the dark, without public notice, and we purpose airing it, some what,'to test its value. ,  . ���������  We have stated that this regulation was inaugurated a few years ago by the late  Laurier- Government and the Provincial Government. It was passed ostensibly to  protect the fisheries, and some will ask how are you going to protect the fish if you  change this regulation ? Our answer is, by strict enforcement of the law and by  having longer closed days, or times. '  For the past two years the two Members mentioned have consistently attacked  this regulation and succeeded this year in having the Dominion Government throw  open a'mimber of these licenses for white men only, with the avowed intention of  next year, or as soon as possible, of having all thrown open to whites only. It will  however, be difficult to make a success of it inasmuch as the Canners bitterly oppose  _ the innovation, and, as they control the boats, they can easily refuse to buy from  the whites and otherwise militate against them, but we are convinced that public  opinion, once thoroughly aroused, will not permit of such high-handed tactics. We  are also convinced that the more sane and just members of the canning fraternity  will not allow the super-selfish, grasping individual to dictate to them altogether.  Some of the Canners say they are not "making money;" our answer to that  argument is, that B. C. Packers' common stock, which is all water, was worthless  a few vears ago, but is now quoted on the Toronto Exchange at $130 bid, or 30  above par. Again we would also draw attention to the number of gentlemen who  have made fortunes out of the business. We do not begrudge any man the best possible returns from his investments, but not at the public expense.  Again we would say that anyone who >seeks to black-guard a public man for  advocating a measure which is in the public interests, is unworthy of the name of a  Canadian citizen. More will be heard on this question before we are through with  it, and the public would do well to study it carefully.  AN ANSWER FOR THE SUN.  F. C. Wade, K.C., late public official of Yukon |  fame, asks if the malicious lies published in the)  Sun recently regarding Mr.   Stevens  are  true.]  The answer is that they are positively false in j  every respect.   Wade knew that they were lies  when they were published���������he knows it still, and  yet the he persists in reiterating them.   We leave  both Wade and the base falsehoods of the Sun to  public scorn. , They are unworthy of any other  attention than that of utmost contempt and loathing.  A SUCCESSFUL RECEPTION.  Mayor Baxter and his council merit the highest  commendation for the able manner in which they  conducted the entertainment of the visiting Nev  Zealand. The officers and crew have left our city  with loud praises for the city fathers and our  community as a whole. To successfully entertain visitors necessarily means a great deal of  hard work and personal sacrifice, and in this case,  as in many others, nothing was spared by the  mayor and council in their efforts to make it a  success.  CURRENT COMMENT  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc,)  THE BRITISH ISRAEL ASSOCIATION OF  VANCOUVER, B. C.  In a few weeks this association will begin to  hold meetings in the Orange Hall, where all those  who take an interest in the word of prophets and  historians will have an opportunity to give their  views and hear those who have made a long study  of these and kindred topics. v*  One of the first papers to be read will be on  the foundation of the old British Language. The  object will be to show that thia language,���������that  of the men who opposed Juliua Caesar when he  first visited the shores of England,���������was founded  on the Hebrew and the Egyptian.  The reasons tot this double foundation are  easily adduced, and the cavses are natural and  logically necessary.  If any of the large numbers of British Israel  students in Vancouver or vicinity care to' com-  ' municate their views by letter they may do so by  addressing such a letter to the Associate 'Editor  of the Western Call. By this route they will  come into my hands and be perhaps of considerable value in determining the best time for beginning the autumn series of meetings. '  A WORTHY PUBLIC 8PIRIT.  It takes some men a long time to fully manifest >  their true nature in its fullest sense. As years  roll around certain men grow-and in the end  reveal the best or worst that is in them. For  many years we have been alive to the claims and  qualifications, one .of the other, here in Vancouver.- I refer especially to those who have been in  public service, and thus have had themselves before the public more or less.  Among these men is Alderman, Captain MeSpadden, who has "made good" both in public  and in this World's goods. Of late, because of  .special success, the worthy -alderman has been  able to do what has been in his heart for years..  Until now he was not in a position to do his best.  But his turn has come, and at once the high public spirit is shown in his generous treatment of a  matter of great utility. I refer to th/8 new. regiment he is getting under way. Not only is the  Captain showing himself to be a patriot,.loyal to  the "old flag," but he has already contributed  the handsome sum of $5j000 towards the expenses  of the undertaking, and is determined that his  regiment will not be second to any in the province.  This, then, is a splendid public spirit, shown  after long years df patient waiting and preparation. His time and opportunity came, and he was  ready to answer to-tbe demand of public claim. ���������  While the Captain is thus enabled to do what  is in his. heart, others are without the material  ability to do as they would. Perhaps they never  will be able.   But the spirit is there.  SKIN BLOTCHES IN MEN AND NATIONS.  When boils break out on man or beast, the  blood.is impure and needs a cleansing course for  'the sake of improved health. It comes to pass  that even in young", as well as in the aered. skin  diseases show at times, owing to the blood being  out of order.  Preceding dca$h of men and nations, very commonly symptoms indicative of the coming disolu-  tion manifest themselves. At times one can detect the decomposing state by a careful investigation, and prevent the mortification becoming  deadly.  Lately, while examining the condition of John  Bull, the healthiest of all national animals, a  strange boil was perceived near the root oi his  tail. Using a barn-yard fork to probe, and make  examination, with a view to a cure, there was a  wonderful outpour of pus and microbes. These  microbes were vigorous and active," but there were  three more lively than the others. These three  seemed to resent the pitchfork interference, for  they preferred to remain in the skin of John  Bull, even though located near the tail, so long  as they were not molested, and had what to them  was fat feeding.  Looking at this mass of microbes infesting the  outletted pus, it was seen that the three very  active germs carried the facial features of Canadian politicians, such as bugglesly, sir rawss and  sir bilf ord larry. They were wrathy because they  were forcibly removed from the root of the tail  of John Bull, so they kicked up quite a fuss, and  raged around to prevent any improvement of the  noble animal.  However, the man with the pitchfork said to  the trio, begone, get out, and leave. Your influence and work are and have been bad. John Bull  needs help, and shall have it as quickly as possible.  The bug, having lost his good fat sit, and being  incensed thereat, determined to prevent the necessary cure being effected in the hide of John Bull.  Sir bilford larry was as mad as a wet hen be-  (Continu������*J Pag* 5)  i  . v>'.  \  -'-  *"5_  'J". 2  THE WESTERN CALL.  1  I  I  I'M :'���������  m  m  pi  :���������  n  l-Si  .ii  *.  i-. .  t  Winnipeg Grocery  Pfce��������� IHtfc.156-       HarriaACsfftrtl  One of the most up-to-  date stores in the district, carrying a full  line of  High-Class Groceries  Special   attention  to  phone orders.

CHEAPER    FRUIT   FOR   ALBERTA  FARMERS.  SMOKER AT GRANDVIEW.  Commercial Athletic Club Members  Hoild Open House.  The recently organized Commercial  Athletic Club of Grandview held their  first athletic gathering of the season  in the club premises in Marfew Hall  last Tuesday night and the affair was  a huge success from start to finish.  A lengthy and varied programme was  staged and everybody went home  happy. Here is the programme: Bud  Soules and Billy Soules boxed three  rounds to a draw while Ernie and  Frank Barrieau went the same distance to a similar decision. Fred  Smith and Al Hatch went two fast  ten-minute bouts in a wrestling exhibition. Al Carter helped along the  good work with hia own inimitable  manner. L. Lambert and G. HcEwan  gave a clever exhibition of tumbling.  F. Ayres and Harry Wills furnished  the comedy element, while the Kil  Kour trio rendered several good songs.  F. Bud and B. Courtell contributed  soIob and Jocko Vinson wound up the  programme by giving a ten-minute  skipping rope exhibition and a recitation. J. T. McArthur, honorary president of the club, and Councillor Dickinson, president ofthe club, .made neat  speeches during tbe evening.  At St. Saviour's Church, Grandview,  on Tuesday evening Miss Jessie Margaret Fowler, who recently came from  Trinity, Newfoundland, was married  to Captain Gilbert J. Brown. The  bride was becomingly attired in a. e,uit  of cream silk with hat to match, and  carried a bouquet of white carnations.  Miss Janette Butler of Newfoundland,  who was prettily gowned in pale blue  silk and carried a. bouquet of ferns,  acted as bridesmaid, while Mr. Bussel  Kearley, also of Newfoundland, gave  the bride away. The ceremony was  performed by Rev. H. St. George Buttrum. After the ceremony a drive  round the city was enjoyed and later  a reception was held at the home of  the bride and groom. The bride was  the recipient of a number of valuable gifts, The groom's gift to the  bride was a handsome gold watch, and  ot the bridesmaid a gold brooch set  with pearls. Included among the gifts  were a number from friends in Newfoundland. Captain and Mrs. Brown  will reside on Graveley street, Grand-  view. : ,  Grand Forks, B. C���������Fruit growers  throughout the Grand Forks district  are expressing general satisfaction  with the decision of the United Farmers' Association to handle the distribution of British Columbia fruits  among the different Alberta unions,  thereby eliminating the middleman to  a large extent. In the opinion of  P. P. Woodridge, secretary of the as*  sociation, the new method of distribution will mean fruit for Alberta  farmers at greatly reduced prices;  and the system once organized should  remain in force as long a sit proves  profitable. With the readiest access  of almost any western shipping centre to the leading inland markets,  where the almost' exclusive grain-  growing policy has thus far prevented  almost entirely the development of  the fruit-growing industry.  Mr. Ernest Dodd left for Seattle last  Saturday night. He will be gone for  a short time on an auto trip through  California with his brother, who lives  in Victoria.  Last Sunday the services in the  Grandview Methodist Church were  conducted by Rev, Stapleford. Iii the  morning the communion service was  conducted by Rev. G. A. Odium.  The W. M. S. of Mount Pleasant  Methodist Church held their regular  meeting on the lawn of Mrs. A. E.  Burnett's home, 2810 Ontario Btreet,  Tuesday afternoon. Supper was spread  on a long table, prettily decorated  with flowers, and the husbands of  the members partook of the ladies'  hospitality. Over a hundred sat down  to the table, at the head of which Dr.  Sipprell presided. Noteworthy in the  afternoon's events was the joining of  fifteen new members with the society  and about eight honorary members.  Class number ten of the Sunday  school served ice cream on the lawn.  TISDALLS LIMITED  1B8-620 tfasf/ngs Streot, Went Vanoouvor, B. O.

The Dominion auto garage in Calgary waa swept by a disastrous flre  early Saturday morning. Fifteen  motor cars, a number of motorcycles  and the whole interior equipment of  the buildings were destroyed. The  total loss is estimated at 150,000. The  fire was discovered by a night watchman after it had gained considerable  headway. The origin of the flre Is  a mystery.  WILL DEVELOP  B. C.   DAIRY   INDUSTRY.  Elko, B. C���������Since it has become  known that western branch creameries i of eastern ,. manufacturers are  many carloads behind in their orders  owing to the immense demand in. the  West, renewed interest is being taken  in the recent announcement of A. F.  MacLaren of Toronto, known as the  Canadian cheese king, to the effect  that his company is.about to estab  lish a chain of creameries in British  Columbia for the purpose of handling  dairy products under the special process controlled by him. The organi  zation of a provincial company has  Just been effected with ap authorized  capital of $400,000. It is practically  certain that at least one of the ten  factories to be established will be  located in the Kootenays, another ln  the Okanagan Valley, and several  more at favorable points along' the  main line of the Canadian Pacific.  THI8 MAN MADE SURE OF CROP.  Canadian western farmers are remarkably ingenious in assuring them  selves a crop. At least they are re  ported to be. An Ontariq farmer tells  of an incident that occurred when he  was paying a visit to a relative farmer  in the Canadian west. He followed  the trail for many miles and finally  found bis relative digging in a field.  The man dub about eight inches and  rooted out a good hill of potatoes.  He dug to another depth and revealed a second hill. At still another  depth a third hill of potatoes was  forthcoming.  Mystified, the farmer from the east  questioned tbe digger concerning the  magnificent crop of potatoes, by hills,  three deep. "Well," he said, "we  plant them three deep; this way in  order to be sure of one crop at least.  You see, in a dry season the upper  hill is killed by drought, and in a  very dry season the second hill is also  lost, but it never gets so dry that the  bottom hill is destroyed. On the other  hand, when the season is wet the  bottom hill rots, in a very wet season the middle hill goes as well, but  it never gets so wet that the top hill  is destroyed. In the third place, in  a favorable season like this has been  the result is three crops, as you see."  Canada's Future  It takes years to grow trees���������not  hours or days.  To keep us in timber, pulp, an equable water supply, fish and game, we  must haye trees.  Stop the fires.  Stop the waste in logging, milling  and utilization.  Stop the insect and fungus depre  dations.  Cut tiinber only when it is "ripe"���������  when it will produce as much value as  possible in usefulness to men.  Plant up the waste places.  Plant the needed shelter belts.  These take time, they take men, they  take money, but they are worth It-  France has spent $35,000,000 in planting trees on watersheds.  Germany spends up to -$13 per acre  per annum on some forests, and gets  gross returns up to $24 per acre, thus  yielding net profits up to $11 per acre  every year.  As a whole, German forests produce  about $2.00 net per acre annually.  Canada spends much less than one  cent per acre per annum on the forest  lands under management.  If we set the fire loss against tjie  timber product, Canada's forest balance sheet shows an enormous deficit.  How can Canadians stop the losses,  arrest the waste?  There is but one answer.  Public opinion, public interest, public conscience are the only forces tbat  will ever make for progress.  fHE -  Where it pays to deal.

Thej flre started either in  a poolroom or the Grand Union Hotel.  The flames swept through Strathcona  street and Litchfield avenue. The two  hotels were destroyed and over thirty  business houses. Bucket brigades finally checked the flames, but hot before  a total damage exceeding half a million dollars waa done* Constable  Blair eceiyed serious burns waking  the guests of the Grand Union Hotel.  The City Council met and formed a  relief committee.  One Hundred people were absolutely  destitute and twice as many had no  place to'buy a meal or get a place to  rest, -the government placed the im  migration hall at the disposal of the  council, and those merchants having  any goods left offered what tbey bad  to relieve the stricken.  The heaviest individual loser was  Mike Gagnon, who lost a number of  buildings worth $200,000, and all uninsured. 7he Athabasca Forwarding  Company's warehouse filled with  goods consigned to the Peace River  was burned to the ground. The goods  were worth $50,000.  The waterworks were not. completed  and only a hand-pump engine was  available to fight the flames except  the bucket brigades.  The following are the losses:  The Athabasca Forwarding Company, Athabasca Hotel, Ney's confectionery, Gibbing'8 restaurant,  Hackett's cigar store, Stacker's dry  goods.

C. Lowther, secretary to  the Governor-General, has issued a  bulletin to the effect that Their Royal  Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of  Connaught will prolong their stay in  England until October 17 in order  that they may be able to be present  at the wedding of H. R. H. Prince  Arthur of Connaught, which has been  fixed for Oct. 15.  The "Journal" says: "Historic Quebec, the ancient capital of Canada,  may once again become at least the  temporary seat of government ln the  Dominion.  'Tt is probable that in the event of  the alterations which are being made  at Rideau Hall not being completed  before His Royal Highness the Duke  of Connaught returns to^Canada, he,  will take up his residence at Spencer-  wood, the home ol the Lieutenant-  Governor bf Quebec, or possibly at  the far-famed Citadel, and the, administration of the country would then be  carried n onot a stone's throw trom  where it was ruled more than 200  years ago by the intrepid and gallant  Frontenac."  CALLING A MAN A LIAR  Places In the United Statea Wfiere H  Is a Crime  : The other day a resident ln Louisville, Kentucky, expressed his opinion  ;to another man that he was a dirty  liar, and was promptly knocked down.  He commenced an action tor assault,  bat lost the case. The Judge declared  from the Bench that to call another  man a liar was to dettveT him a blow,  ind. honorably dlachaifced the defendant ���������    ..;_���������'      ���������' v  It Is a Justifiable defenoe ln any of  the American States to claim tbat the  man you bave assaulted   baa   flrat  culled you a liar.   A Rill containing  such a provision was introduced in the  Texas Legislature tome years ago. and'  hai not yet been repealed*  The sens-}  tor who introduced the Bill declared;  that he based it on a law which make*  the offensive use of the word * misdemeanor punishable by * 1*5 <*���������������.  Calling a man a liar ta not only an  offence against the law in Virginia;  It Is a crime. Tbere is a law on the  statute-books of that State which  reads as follows: "If any person shall!  in the presence or bearing of anotherr  curse or abuse such person or use any  violently abusive   language   to   such  Jerson concerning himself or any ^>t  is female relatives in circumstances  .reasonably calculated to provoke a  'breach of tbe peace, he shall be deemed guilty of misdemeanor, and on con*  -rjotton shall be fined not less than  UJK, nor more than f80."  , To call a man a liar ln Georgia Is  (kinder, for which one may be punished by a fine of f 1,000, or imprisonmnent for a year, or both. The defend  gat has tbe right, however, to prov*  hie charge and go clear. On tbe crlmi  nal tide of the courts the law holds  ���������s it does in Kentucky, tbat the lie  constitutes the first blow and Justifier  violent response.  In Arkansas the use of the epithet  ia a misdemeanor punishable by ���������  Une. In Mississippi it ls not specifically mentioned in the laws, but all in  suiting words are made civilly action  able. In South Carolina it is not I  crime, but m?>y be used as a basis o  civil action for defamation of charaa  to*.  In North Carolina the user of the  epithet and the man to whom it is applied are held equally guilty ia cases  of assault and battery. But every  State is careful to warn the public  that "all words which, from their usual  construction and common acceptation,  are construed as insults and tend to  violence and breach of th* peace shall  he actionable."

CURRENT COMMENT  (Continued from page 1)  cause his pact with the dirty bald-headed eagle  was not successful. "Larry looked fierce,, and has  got the jaundice of defeat and sad failure. He  sees his doom, the doom of a badly directed John  Bull microbe. He knows, but hates to admit it,  that he is but the microbe of a microbe's microbe.  And then the third, sir wraas, sworn to be true to  John Bull, and to defend the noble animal against  all dangers, enemies and other microbes, is disgusted because he has been forced by bugglesley  and sir larry to be false to a sacred trust, and  give his aid to the master microbe, which mud-  woggles around -in the Tiberine marshes.  However, since the pitchfork has done its work,  these three microbes are growing more harmless  every day and soon will be quiescent, especially  larry, the disgruntled slave of a slave's slave.  In the meantime! John Bull has his tail working  in better shape, and soon will have three other  helpers, big burly defenders; and these are coming in spite of the three little microbes lately removed from the root of the tail. May their end  be restful and their now sorrowful shades be a bit  more happy.  THfc NEW ZEALAND AND VANCOU VERMES  The advent of New Zealand's gift to the Umpire made the people of Vancouver truly proud  and grateful. Of course there are some exceptions. Among these are the people who want  peace at any price, and would not build a single  British ship even though the other nations were  doubling their fleets at a most rapid rate. Such  people have little influence in the councils of the  Empire, and never ean so long as nations delight  in war and until the big wars of the future, as  foretold in Scripture, shall have taken place.  Then there are many foreigners in Vancouver  who do not like to see the British Empire so far  ahead of their own countries in all that stands  for peace or war. And the Battle-Cruiser, New  Zealand, stands for both peace and war, either in  an emergency. )  .: <  Then there are certain extreme followers of Sir  "Wilfrid Laurier who aire enraged to see the Empire growing strong in spite of the continued attempts to keep it from thus growing in physical  force; a true measurement of its high ideals and  visions,���������yes, and a measurement of its lofty  spirit.  But apart from these and a few others not  worthy a mention here, the bulk of Vancouverites  were proud, and hailed the New Zealand with  joyful spirits.  In this statement I include the vast body of  those citizens whom we call Liberals. They, the  best of them, were tiie men who here, and elsewhere in Canada, came to the aid of Canada and  the Empire nearly two years ago, "when they forsook the leader whom they had followed for  many years.  They are sorry for him and ashamed of his late  course as well.' He has wrecked his party, for a  time, and wrecked himself forever. He never -can  win back what he has lost. He has lost his best  men in tens of thousands, as the last election has  shown, and ad the next will emphasise, unless he  and his. co-workers make a-sharp turn. They  need not try working for the enemies of the Empire and. expect political success in Canada, which  is perhaps more loyal in its units than even Old  England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland in their  units. When our citizens were manifesting their  enthusiasm and high appreciation of the action  of the Dominion of l^Tew Zealand, it was evideht  to the close observer that a deep sense of shame  and sorrow pervaded the best of the men of the  Liberal party, for |hey know and; hesitate not to  say that Sir Wilfrid. Laurier has disgraced Canada in the eyes of loyal Britons throughout the  world,' and worse yet, in the eyes of our most inveterate enemies. .  These very Liberals have aided in chastising  the men at Ottawa"who ventured to hand the  destinies of Canada over to the States; and they  are ready to make these same leaders of the party  feel the lashings of a fierce disapproval at the  next elections if their conversion be hot manifest  beforehand.  However it is likely that the loyal and statesmanlike Liberals will be in contral of the party  before the next election when their national and  Empire plans will be more commensurate with  the world needs, claims and aims of Britannia  Major. In the meantime they will have to throw  Sir Wilfrid, Sir Geo, Ross and the present leaders  aside on account of the political act of treachery  performed of late. The old unrepresenting Senate  of Canada simply acted as so many feeble tools  ofthe Laurier manipulators.  In the meantime we welcome as part of the  British defending force the splendid ship the  "New Zealand." And we shall, ere many moons,  place beside that ship three of a similar or superior sort. Then Canada will make its voice to  be heard as it long has wanted so to do.  It is remarkable that the Borden policy has  been condemned by Germany, Austria, and all  the enemies of England, while these very nations  and peoples are loud in their praises of the  Laurier do-nothing policy. The course to pursue  nine times out often is the course condemned by  A woman's work is never done unless 'tis done  the Hot Point way.

'This ls the gentleman who'protect.  ed me from the mob, lf that ls what  you mean. Permit me to present Captain Grant of the Queen's Rangers,  lieutenant���������pardon my having already  forgotten your name."  "Fortesque," I stammered, intensely  bating the necessary deception.  "Ah, yes���������Lieutenant Fortesque of  the Forty-second British Foot"  We bowed coldly, neither extending  a band, the captain twisting his mustache as he continued staring at me.  "Fortesque," he repeated slowly.  "Fortesque; not of this garrison, I believe."  "No, from New York," coolly. 1 regret having interfered with your program."  "Dont mention lt; there are other  ladies present, and, no doubt your  gallant act was -worthy the reward; a  pleasant evening, sir," and he withdrew aside, stiffly military. Eager to  lose as little as possible of the measure, I swung my partner forward,  catching glimpse again of the man's  face as we circled.  "Pleasant disposition," I ventured,  without meaning to be uncivil.  "Oh, very," and her eyes met mine  frankly. "But you must not quarrel  with him; that ls his one specialty,  you know."  ment. "Come with' me, beyond the  light yonder."  I followed her guidance, bewildered,  yet having every confidence the reason for this mysterious occurrence  must be fully Justified. The passage  curved slightly, terminating at a closed  door: Scarce a reflection of the candle  reached us here, yet my eyes were by  now sufficiently accustomed to the  gloom so that I could trace the outlines of her face. A vague doubt, took  possession of me.  "You are causing me to run away  from Grant," I protested blindly. "You  are making me appear afraid to meet  him."  "No, it is not t_at" swiftly. "He  was not coming to you personally at  sill���������you were to be arrested?"  "What!   He knew me then?"  "I am not sure���������some one did, and  mentioned his suspicions. Captain  Grant was glad enough of an excuse,  no doubt, but he," the soft voice fal-  jterlng, "he made a mistake ln twitting  ime for being friendly toward you."  "And you came to warn, to save  mel" I exclaimed, pressing her hand.  "That was nothing; I could dp no  jless.

Suddenly she looked up laughing, as  though to make others feel that we  conversed lightly. We passed Grant,  even as I held my breath, almost  afraid to venture with words. ' Yet  they would not be restrained.  Tou certainly startled me; how do  you know this? Surely we have never  met before?"

My cheeks burned  'with indignation at his cool Insolence.  What could it mean? Was he merely  seeking a quarrel? or was there something else concealed behind thts request? In either case I knew not how  to act, and yet felt no inclination to  avoid the meeting.   Studying over the    {situation I pushed my way through  "Yet the captain called you Claire." j (the crowd across tbe floor of tbe ball-  "And we were children together��������� j [room.

Sweet as the face  was, greatly as it had attracted me,  there was nothing to awaken a throb  of memory. Surely I could never have  seen ber before, and forgotten; that  would have been impossible. The music ceased, leaving us at the farther  extremity of tbe hall.  "And now you will go?" she questioned eagerly.  "You mean, leave here?"

"Covered everything, I Judge, from  Callowhill to the Lower Battery.  Watts said he asked questions of  everybody they met, but he didn't take  any notes. He liked the fellow, but  thought he was mighty inquisitive.  Where Is he now, sir ?"  "The devil knows, I don't, and you'll  have to find out. He'll head northwest likely; he'll never try to cro63  the river here. How many nren have  you?"  ,   "Twenty."  : "Scatter them to every north post.  The fellow had no horse, and your  troopers can easily get ahead of bim.  Hurry up now." Carter departed with  click of steel, and MacHugh evidently  turned to his companion.  "Well catch the lad all right, Grant.  Some ot those outposts will nab him  before daylight. No use our waiting  around here; let's go back upstairs."  The girl's nervous grasp on my arm  tightened, her lips pressed close to my  ear.  '1���������I must get back to my place at  the table," she whispered.

I opened the door  cautiously, and stepped without, every  sei-re taut, every muscle braced for  action,  it was a star-lit night, and the  numerous rear windows of. the man*  jston cast a glare of light for some distance.    The dark shadow of a high  jfence alone   promised   concealment,  {and, holding my sword tightly, I crept  in that direction, breathing again more  ���������freely as I reached its protection unobserved. There was a guard stationed  before the stable door���������a Grenadier,  from the outline of his hat���������and others, a little group, were sitting on the  grass a dozen feet away.   If they had  ���������not been already warned I might gain  ia horse by boldness, but the probability waa that here was where -Carter  bad mounted his, squad, and I would  merely walk forward into a trap.   I  had better chance the possibility that  aome visitor had left a horse tied in  {front, or to one of the stands.  With  'this possibility ln mind I turned, and  skirted the house, making myself as  inconspicuous as possible. There were  soldiers on the outside steps; I beard  tbelr voices without seeing them, and  WW thus driven to run, swiftly across  an open space, memory guiding me  toward the opposite pavilion.   Breathless,   with    heart    beating   fast,  I  crouched low in the shadow, endeavoring to make out my more immediate  surroundings.   There were no horses  there, but 1 could clearly distinguish  the, stomping of reBUess hoofs some-  'Where to the right.   As I straightened  up, determined upon discovering   an  empty saddle if possible, the figure of  a man suddenly loomed directly in  front,   advancing   toward   me.'    In  istartled surprise I took one step backward, but was too late.   Already tbe  eyes of the newcomer had perceived  liny presence, and be sprang forward,  'tugging at bis sword.  :   "Hold on there! hold on!" he commanded shortly. "Who are you? What  the devil are you skulking about out  ;here for?"  i It was Grant beyond a doubt; I  [would recognize the peculiar snarl of  ���������that voice in a thousand. He had not  gone upstairs then; bad not rejoined  ithe lady in the dining-room. What  jwould she think ot his absence?  What -would she do when she realized  lite probable meaning? Someway I was  inot frightened, at thus meeting him,  jbtft glad���������if those others would only  fkeep away, and let us settle the affair  [between us. Here was his test���������a  [coward wot-d cry out an alarm, sum-  ���������mon the guard to his assistance, but,  'if the fellow's u������.rve only held, or lf he  'bated me badly one ga, he'd fight it  tout alone. All this came to me in a  flash, and the words of challenge  jspoken before be ~ven grasped the  ���������thought of wbo I was.  "So I have discovered you, have I?  Why did you fail to keep our appointment within?"  j He drew up sharply with an oath,  peering at me through the dark, bewildered by my speech.  j "The spy! Ye gods, what luck! Do  iyou mean to insinuate I'ran away,  isirr  j "How else could I interpret it?" I  iquestioned coolly, determined to taunt  [him to action. "I waited where you  jtold me till I was tired. Perhaps you  jwill oblige me by explaining your pur-  poae."  j He muttered something, but without  ���������comprehending its purport I went on  threateningly:  "And I think you made use of the  word spy Just now. Did you mistake  jxne for another?"  . "Mistake you? No; I'd know you in  [hell," be burst forth, anger making his  voice tremble. "I called you a spy, and  jyou are one, you sneaking night rat.  ���������You never waited for me in the par-  (lor; if you had you'd now be under ar.  Irest."  "Oh, so that was the plan?"  .   "Yes, that was it. Mister Lieutenant  'Fortesque."  "Well. Grant,". I said sternly, "I've  (got Just one answer to make you. You  rcan call your guard, or you can light  it out with me here. Whichever you  .choose will depend upon whether you  are a man, or a cur."   I took a step  nearer, Watching him as best I could  In. the dark. "You are an unmitigated  liar, sir," and with sudden sweep of  the arm I struck him with open hand.  ''Probably you will realise what that  means."  For an instant he remained so still  I doubted him, even held him cheap;  then the breath aurged through hia  clinched' teeth in a mad oath. He  surged toward me, but my sword waa  out, the steel blocking his advance.  "You���������you actually mean fight?"  <*Why not? Isn't that cause enough?  ���������If not t will furnish more."  .   "I do not fight spies���������"  "Stop! That silly charge Is merely  an excuse. You do not believe it your-  'self. You wanted a quarrel yonder ln  the ball-room. The expression of your  eyes, was an insult. Don't evade now.  I am here, wearing the uniform ot the  'British army. I bave every right of a  gentleman, and you will cross swords,  or 111 brand you coward wherever  there Is an English garrison."  I saw the sudden flash of his drawn  blade,- and flung up my own ln guard.  "Wait; not here. Captain," I insisted  quickly. "We're far too near your  watchful friends yonder; besides the  light Is poor. Let's try our fortunes  beyond tbe pavilion, where it can be  simply man to taan."  He turned without a word, and I followed, eager enough to have done  with the business. -Tbe stars gleamed  on the naked weapons held . in oqr  hands, but we exchanged'no wori.G  until we had rounded the corner and  come forth into the open space beyond.  CHAPTER VI.  The One Hope.  As he stopped and faced about, I at  'instantly halted.  "Perhaps this spot mar satisfy four  ���������requirements," be said aafoaittcallr.  "Tls far enough away at least, and  the light is not so bad."  "It will do," I replied, and threw my  scarlet Jacket on the grass. "Strip to  the white, sir, and then, we can see  fairly well where to strike. That's better.   On guard!"  He came at me fiercely enough, confident of his mastery of tbe weapon,  and, no doubt, expecting me to prove  an easy victim of his skill. His first  onslaught, a trick threat under my  guard, caused me to give back a step  or two, anil thia smalt success yielded  *ilm the over-confidence I always pre*  ;<er that an opponent have.' 1 was  young, agile, cool-headed^ Instructed  mk ? early boyhood by my father, a  rather famous swordsman, In the mysteries of the game, yet I preferred tbat  Grant should deem me a novice. With  this lh mind, and ln order that I might  better study the man's style, I remained strictly pn defense, giving way  slightly before the confident pley of  his steel, content with barely turning  aside the gleaming point before it  pricked me. At first he mistook this  for weakness, sneering at my parries,  as he bore in with Increasing reckless*  "A club would be more in your line,  I take it, Mr. Lieutenant Fortesque,"  be commented sarcastically, "but I'll  play with you a while for. practice���������  ahl that was a lucky turn of the wrist!  86 you do know a trick or two? Perhaps you have a parry for that thrust  as well! Ah! an inch more and I'd  bare pricked you���������your defense is  not bad for a boy!

The enterprise is small to  begin with, consisting of a six-mile  freight belt line around the city and  harbor of the. capital, Reikiavik, but  it is thought that once a beginning  is made a railway running across to  Thingvalla will be built. Two hundred men will be employed and it  will cost $500,000. The line will be  done in 1916. It is a private enterprise. Iceland lies 155 miles from  Greenland and over 500 miles from  Norway. It is about the size of Virginia or Kentucky and has more than  80,000 population.  "CQM9**TH������ ACT.  TAKE NOTICE that BATSON FISHERIES.

There were hundreds of rcoa  ot old fence to bj> torn down at er.es  and fence rows elmned, so r'day  would deno good ar.d itwrs impevs.  ble to got. help. . The long tendrils  were woven about tho post?, old 'piec; s  of boards, bltB of rail, and the shrubbery that had grown up along tiie  fence, so that practically every bit oi  the grouud was infectfid with the poison.  In the first place he pt.t on long  gloves of heavy material, and thou  drew stout old stocking legs over his  sleeves above the gloves to protect  the wrists and arms. In this way he  escaped the scratches that so quickly  are infected, and he could work with  more freedom because he wos not on  the lookout constantly to avoid touching the vines. With an old pitchfork  he quickly forked them out of the way  to dry, and later they were placed on  tbe bonfire .with the same tool. -  In cutting down the vines he used  a long Iron or spud sharpened at the  end, so that the roots could be easily  cut underground. Of course, where  they were tangled around the boards  and posts and wires, large hedge trimmers had to be used in clipping them,  hut the spud cut off the roots very  easily. Great care was taken not to  handle the tools with the bare hands  after they had been used In the poison.  The farmer always stood \ so the  wind would not blow in his face, and  thus bring the. infection, and be avoided wiping his warm face ,.w ith a handkerchief touched by. th������ poison.  Occasionally he had a touch of the old  trouble, but almost the 'entire fenca  Aid.
