STEVENS, M.P., Editor-in-chief.  VANCOUVER, BbiTIBH CoUWWA, OCTOBER 10, 1913  No. 22  "A Man's  /-.<���������  for a  at"  Character, Nif Social Standing, Race or Color, Makes a Man  V. _ AV ' -*t* *********m*���������************^****Vf*****w^^mm  People of Ulster AreTtuly Loyal to the British Constitution  HOME RULE  A certain element of the press of Canada is  most assiduously endeavoring to create in the  public mind the idea that Ulster is disloyal and  that to express sympathy with Ulster is an act  of (treason.  The truth is that the Nationalists of Ireland  are seeking to break the political union of Great  Britain and Ireland. The {Jlstermen are seeking  to maintain the union.  The union is constitutional, therefore any act  that would sever that union is unconstitutional,  and therefore, if anything, it is disloyal.  Ulster desires to maintain the constitution and  is justified in defending it to the extreme limit.  T. P. O'Connor canvassed the United States  from end to end and raised thousands upon  thousands of dollars to break the union, and is  acclaimed a patriot. A few Canadians offer to  subscribe funds to defend the union and are  -jailed traitors. What absurd folly. It is undoubtedly the hand of that Italian priest at Rome  which is the real power behind this movement,  and it will bear watching.  BAIL FOE TH* MINERS.  Nearly two hundred miners have been arrested  and held pending trial at Nanaimo. They are  confined like ordinary eonvictif. and are not  allowed to have food served" rrom the outside.  This is a moBt extraordinary condition w^ c*v*-  lized country.  We have no comment to make here on their  guilt, but protest against s^ system which will  refuse bail to men charged with vagrancy and  *e������<*Ji*e;'*al|ein^ ���������  We have never known an instance in Canada  when persons charged with an offence and held  pending trial were refused permission to have  food brought in to them, or,-when charged with  anything short of a most violent crime, were  refused bail.  We do not believe that the Attorney-General is  behind this, aa is alleged by some of his enemies,  but regard it as the result of inexperience and  timidity on the part of the local judge.  Every effort should be made to give them a fair  trial, but it is hard to understand how such treatment can possibly precede a fair and impartial  trial, inasmuch as the prisoners cannot properly  consult their solicitors and are handicapped in  every way before the trial commences.  It is to be hoped that upon the return of the  Attorney-General that he will at once use his  influence with the judge to secure bail for all  those cases charged with minor offences, such as  being a member of an unlawful assembly and  vagrancy.  .  WATWULI8TI0 EVOLUTION.  From time to time this subject comes to the  front and calls a halt in the thinkings of busy  and speculative men and women. Just now the  British Science Association and Sir Oliver Lodge  have sent a thrill through the earth in relation to  existing beliefs'and conjectures. He has done a  good turn for many reasons. But all who read  will readily see that while Sir Oliver talks good  sound sense he is in the realm of conjecture on  the subject of immortality, so long as he strives  to find a conclusion outside the Bible teaching.  He and all others must remain in the realm of  philosophic and deductive speculation so long as  ���������they do not build their beliefs and conclusions on  Scripture. I do not say this to condemn Sir  Oliver or those who enjoy speculation with him  in these fields where many millions have trod in  ages past.  Now for a word concerning material evolution  of the schools of higher critics and university  teachers. Materialistic evolution is a monstrous  fraud, an illogical myth, and a gigantic lie. It is  fundamentally a fraud because it is impossible in  fact. In a few words I shall make good my statement. Here is how I proceed. Plain language,  tersely put, will be to the point. The teaching of  materialistic evolution is this in a nutshell: Force  operating upon matter along the lines of fixed  law causes all the phenomena ever discerned or  discernible. And the whole trend of nature iu  her efforts is an upward trend. That is, the general average, onward outcome of Nature, in all  she does, is towards betterment, not only of man  but beast and all else. Now here in short is the  very ground of my attack, and the spot where  any man can see the folly of sueh a claim as  evolution upwards on the part of Nature. This  folly teaches that the universe of yesterday gave  to the universe of today a little more than it contained yesterday. If not, wherein can come the  upward lift, the evolution? If dead, soulless  Nature, without an intelligent and capable law-  (Continued on page FOUR)  Shylocks Put to Shame By  Colored Man  A prominent local lawyer recites the following incident:  After complimenting the "Call" on its efforts to break up the gang of social  and business parasites who are ruining our city by extorting exhorbitant rates of  interest, he said that a few days ago a man entered his office and asked if he (the  lawyer) had any money to loan, further stating that wherever he went he was faced  with a demand for 60 to 100 per cent, interest. The lawyer replied he had none  but that a client of his, a colored man, had a few thousand with him to be loaned  on mortgage. The man at once offered to pay 25 per cent, for the loan, and to  mortgage suitable property as security.  The lawyer at once notified his client to come down to the office, which he did,  and agreed to make the loan, but when, tfte-rate of interest was being filled in (25  per cent), the colored man said: "Hold (titi |iar, boss, I can't accept no such rate  as dat, no how. I wouldn't dare look the pe6ple in de face and charge dat rate.  You jes'ciwnge dat to ten per cent."      ^|i  Here we have a real man, not a rich, cultured citizen, but a poor colored man,  yet with a soul within bim that is true. It |>uts that Bank Inspector, those doctors,  lawyers, financial men, business men and ot|ier Shylocks to shame.  Canada's Shore Fisheries 0^ Much Needed Protection  Hon. J. p. Hasan Takea fttapi to Improve the Lof of tha Canadian risbtrmon���������Ratter  Vessels for Patrol Service.  The rights of the Canadian fishermen in both  the Atlantic and Pacific coasts are being jealously  guarded by Hon. J. P. Hazen, Minister of Marine  and Fisheries. Reports show that on the Atlantic  coast two deep sea trawlers are being accompanied by the Dominion Government protective cruiser so that they cannot interfere with the legitimate areas of the coast fishermen as trawling can  take place without the vigilant eyes of the government officials being fastened upon the trawler.  The work is being appreciated by the fishermen,  who earn a living on the Atlantic coast.  Hora Oruisars.  During the Laurier regime little effort was  made in obtaining first class boats to protect Canadian fishermen but the present Minister of Mar-  Government to Introduce Progressive Mining Uw  Present System of Administration By Regulation Is Considered to Be Defective.  Minecs Will Benefit, Capital Safeguarded  Representative of Department of Mines Eaa Been  in Conference with Prominent Representatives  and Question of Jurisdction Baa Been Settled  It has been left to the Borden Government to  initiate mining legislation long desired by miner  and prospector alike. The effect of it will be to  protect human life and also give prospectors the  assurance that invested capital will at least have  the assurance of stability guaranteed by legislation passed by Act of Parliament. At the next session of parliament Hon. Louis Coderre, Secretary  of State and Minister of Mines, will introduce the  bill, which has been under consideration since the  prorogation of Parliament.  System Is Faulty.  It has been found that the system of regulations  is unsatisfactory, affording no protection whatever to the prospector or miner. The regulations  not being passed by Parliament but by order-in-  council, ean be changed at any time and it is felt  that considering the amount of capital invested  and the nature of risks entered into that a law  subject only to the control of Parliament itself  would prove of greater stability.  Greater Protection Given.  The new act will afford greater physical protection to the Canadian miner.

Two new fisheries protective vessels will be  placed on the Britsh Columba coast* The Maias-  pina, built in Dublin dockyard, with a speed of  15 knots is now on her way across and is expected  at Victoria, B.

The vessels  now in use are out of date and until the completion of the two new boats the Naval Service Department was obliged to hire boats.  *^W   99*\*a9^a*(^af   tfa^v-ra-rw^f ���������  These protective measures (result >n greater  profits for Canadian labor. The fishing industry  is too large and substantial to allow of its being  menaced by the poacher and foreign competition.  accidents in the various provinces of Canada is  greater than that in any other country in the  world. While last year the death rate in Great  Britain, with over a million miners employed,  was only 1.19 per thousand, in British Columbia  it was over 3 per thousand. In Ontario it is computed that one miner is killed or hurt every third  day.  Aa to Jurisdiction.  The difficulty encountered in framing a Dominion mining law is found in the question of  jurisdiction. The mining laws at present in force  in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario and British Columbia were passed before Confederation,  while Alberta only last year passed a new provincial mining law.  Provincial Rights Maintained.  The rights of the provinces will not be interfered with by the new law. During the past year  the Government has been in conference through  a representative with the commissioners of minet  of the various provinces on the subject and certain  difficulties have been cleared away.  Any law, which goes for to protect human life,  will be welcomed by the Canadian people and  legislation which protects human life and men's  earnings is doubly welcome. The Borden Government is winning its way by sound and healthy  legislation.  HELPLESS PROTESTANTISM  The Romans of Vancouver have established a  strong and effective organization for the purpose  of forwarding the political interests of their  church and people. They are definitely directed  and aided by the moat astute clericals of their  church, and are bound to become a very strong  factor in all the coming elections so long aa they  are a unit in their endeavors.  Some lessons are to be learned by their action,...  which action is to be complimented so long aa  their purposes are what they are today. It ia not  a hidden matter that their first aim ia to forward  the interests of ''Mother Church'' first and all  things else second. We heartily commend them  in their decision. And further, we commend  their frankness in announcing publicly what they  aim at. .  Of all the denominations in existence our  Roman Catholic friends are the only churchera  who make political claims on the grounds of their  religion. This is somewhat odd and striking. If  they are right in their plana then we, the Protestants, are wrong. If they are wrong, we may  be right; but if they be wiaa> we are weakly  foolish. x.x.L+y.      "��������� i;:' - ;v  Here is one Jtaion we may learn for the future.  It is thiB: If the two parties have their committees for Provincial, Dominion or (firic purpotea,  then if at these cominittecs our Roman friends  appear, they are there only as spies or onlookers  ��������� **w^^l^.*f^*a^'^#^^p-^^^-*,*������^^^**-jpW^^x^_p^p^^.^^^ ���������t^w^'^^^Ow^t-9pw^^*w*\ ***-N^***^  the Roman Catholic Political Party, in existence  to use the other two for its own.advancement  without any caring for the interests of those two  old political divisions. Tbis is plain and within  the reach of all who have heads and eyes.  Now where is our boasted, enlightened Protestantism? It is nearly a myth from a political  view-point. It is a round, senseless zero. And  it cannot organize. It has no means for an organization. It lacks the constructive power, and in  an election it nullifies its own actions. Practically as many vote "Yes" as they who vote "No."  They are helpless and useless.  The newspapers have lately told the public  how the Roman Catholics have gone about their  political business in an up-to-date business manner. These papers gave the news in the ordinary  way, and the "Western Catholic" did likewise.  Hence I am safe in saying that these newly-  organized Romanists are planning as to how they  will throw down certain Protestants in the coming  elections, and as to how they will displace or replace them by Roman Catholics or such Protestants as will promise to do their bidding without  a halt..  These words are written in a friendly spirit;  and so as to show the helpless Protestants just  where they stand. There is a hope in the writer's  mind that these words will set a large number to  think pretty hard on this important subject. The  Roman gauntlet has been thrown down in the  most public manner. Have the Protestants spirit  and gumption enough to meet these men, who  have planned to capture political situations on  the ground of being religious Romanists? If not,  then the coming elections will be largely fought  out by two definite parties, both of whom are  organized. These two parties are the Orangemen  and their religious opponents. Outside of these  two factions the rest of the public are like un-led  sheep, and as helpless as scattered lambs when  the shepherd is absent in the time of danger.  Outside of the Roman Catholics and Orangemen, both organized, the rest of the electorate  will "go as you please," and land in the zero  region in all probability. Should a large majority go any one way, so as to be practically unmodified by the results of the organized vote, it  still would be the result of a hap-hazard method-  less method of fighting a public warfare.  It is up to you as Protestants to get into connection with some such a body as the Orangemen  who know just what they want and how to go  about their work. If not, then go and join the  Romanizing party, and work for the lessening of  public education and of individual freedom, and  for an increase of papal authority, of priestcraft,  of separate schools and all the ills of a two-fold  nation in one province, and under two opposing  potentates.  ���������Prof. E.

His   Worship,   Mayor   Baxter,   in  his resume of the financial conditions  of  the  city  before  the   Ratepayer's  Association   > on    Thursday    night,  stated that Vancouver compared well  with other cities.   In the markets of  Chicago, Minneapolis and New York  its credit stood better than Seattle,  Portland  or  San   Francisco.    A  financial  agent,   representing  a  large  firm in  England, had informed him  the credit of Vancouver, in the estimate of London, equalled the credit  of the Province of British Columbia;  that as a matter of fact the credit of  the Province was gaged by the credit  bf Vancouver.    At the beginning of  the year, however, the city had an  overdraft  of  $5,000,000.00,   and  that  although the city had sold 2 1-2 millions in bonds in England, and had  received  in  taxes 2  1-2 millions of  dollars, and also a large quantity of  local    improvement   debentures,   the  city really had no money today.    It'  had gone to wipe off the 5 millions,  which the bank.had pressed for, and  ' this was why they had  shut  down  work.    The mayor also said that he  thought the increase of fare by the  B. C. E. R. was unjustified, but that  the council would not adopt a threatening attitude till they conferred with  the company.    His personal opinion  was that it was a part of the whole  attempt for a consolidation of all the  franchises  next  year.    Referring  to  the Canadian Northern Railway, the  Mayor spoke of the negotiations between it and the Great Northern, as  to the former obtaining an interest  in the Grandview cut, in which event  it would come into the city over the  line of the Great Northern.   The Canadian Northern had sold 10 millions  worth  of  bonds three  months  ago,  guaranteed by the Provincial government, and the money instead of coming to the company had been sent in  trust to the government.   The company required the deed of the bed bf  False creek, but the Mayor said he  was not going to give them the deed  till they had. made arrangement for  the    1  1-2   million    dollars    bonds,  which their agreement with the "city  required them to put up.    It would  only be a matter of a few days, continued His Worship, before the property fronting.on Main street, and having riparian  rights  to  False cVeek,  would be purchased, as only a few of  the  owners  were  standing out  for  higher price.    The  city having decided it would require an extra 50  feet, were waiting on Ottawa before  they commenced on the sea wall and  docks, which they wish to conform  to the general scheme decided upon  by-the harbor commission.  Railways are Not  Aiding Industry  Mr. H. H. atevens, M.P., Declares  Railways Are Not Doing All They  Could to Assist Fruitgrowers of the  Okanagan.  Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.P., refused to  retract his statements to "The News-  Advertiser" "on the Okanagan fruit  situation when shown the aspersions  cast^on them by "a prominent C.P.R.  official" in an afternoon paper Saturday.  "I say again that the organization  of the fruitgrowers in the Okanagan  is Incomplete and that they are not  getting sufficient refrigerator cars to  carry their fruit," Mr. Stevens stated.  "It Is true that a good start has been  made ia establishing selling agencies  and no doubt next year will show even  better results. The railways must do  more than they are doing to assist  the industry.  "It is an Industry worth assisting.  It is useless to send perishable fruit  from the Okanagan district to eitber  Calgary or Vancouver by the ordinary  slow freight train. More refrigerator  trains ae required and they must be  run on a fast schedule. Another thing,  the refrigerator cars should be properly aired and ventilated at each divisional point. This has not been done  properly and the fruit men are talking  of appointing their own men to look  after it."���������News-Advertiser.

West Vancouver, Sept. 29.���������Reeve  Lawson reported to a meeting of the  West Vancouver Ratepayers' Association this evening that the municipal  council was making every effort to  facilitate the construction of a wharf  at the foot of Twenty-fifth Avenue.  Progress was being made in drawing up a bylaw to be submitted to the  ratepayers providing for the required  expenditure. There was every prospect, too, that the debentures* issued  under the sanction of that bylaw  would find buyers.  The meeting, held in the new Conservative Hall, Dunderave, was an organization to prepare for the work of  the ensuing year. Councillor Alexander and Messrs. W. J. Irwin and Le-  foe also spoke.  -   f HE  Trance has spent 135,000,000 tn planting trees on watershed*.  Germany spends up to f 13 per acre  per annum on some forests, and gets  gross returns up to $24 per acre, thus  yielding net profits up to f \\ per acre  every year.  As a whole, German forests produce  about $2.00 aet 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 the  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 force's that  will ever make for progress.

In legislation for the protection of  shade and street trees, the Province  of Ontario sets a good example for  the rest of the Dominion. Under  the Tree Planting Act of the Province  of Ontario, trees planted or left  standing on the public highways (and  also on toll roads) become the property of the owner of the land adjacent to the highway and nearest to  such trees. Thus any company or individual destroying or damaging in  any way (even tying a horse to) such  trees without the owner's consent, is  liable to a fine not to exceed $25 and  costs, or imprisonment for not more  than thirty days, half of the fine to  go to the informant. Telephone companies, who, in the stringing of wires,  very often seriously injure and mu-f,  tilate shade trees, are apt to justify  themselves to the property owners  by asserting their legal right to do  such "pruning" because of established precendent. In this case, no  such practice, however long it has  been tolerated by property holders,  becomes legally justifiable, and such  companies are just as liable for damages the last time they injure the  trees as they are the first time. However long a wire may have been attached to a tree, the owner, if he has  property in the tree, can compel its  removal.  While even the owner may not remove shade tres on highways without the consent of the municipal  council, yet, on the other hand, not  even the municipal council may remove any live trees without the consent of the owner of the property in  front of which the tree stands, unless  such tree is within thirty feet of other  trees, and even then the owner must  be given at least two days' notice and  can demand compensation if he has  planted and protected such tree.  The property owner who is aware  of his rights in these respects will  take greater interest in and greater  care of the trees bordering the highway opposite his property. He will  also have more incentive to plant  shade trees.  irrDEFEWDJ-KT OKDEX OP ODD.  r_L_ows  MT. PLEASANT LODGE NO. 1>  Meets   every   Tuesday   at   8  p.m.  i������  f.'XO.F.   ha'I.

Rec Sec.. 481 Seventh Ave E.  GREATER VANCOUVER  CROWDED OUT LAST WEEK  SOUTH VANCOUVER  The Main Street Improvement Association, which met on Monday evening in the school house, corner of  Twenty-seventh and Main, appointed  a committee to look into the matter  of acquiring the Main street bridge  across False Creek, which will be removed when the Canadian Northern  Railway complete their flll-in there,  in order that it may be removed to  the southern extremity of Main street  and that it may be put across the  North Arm of the Fraser st this section. If the plans of the association  sre carried out it will afford a means  of linking the rich Ladner district with  Greater Vancouver. Perhaps it will  not be long before it will be an absolute necessity to have trams crossing  the North Arm from Richmond into  South Vancouver municipality, and if  this bridge, can be secured at a reasonable figure it will save the much  greater expense ot building a new  structure, which would be capable of  carrying cars across.  Another matter taken up was the  securing of through cars from the  city along the length ot Main street.  At present the Davie car only goes to  Twenty-fifth street and passengers  have to transfer to the Rosenberg car.  Mr. Robert M. Robson placed before  the association an alternative plan for  making use of the street and preceding the junction of Main street with  the tramline of the B. C. E. for a  turning place, which he had previously  submitted to the company.  The association distributed a number of copies of the petition which is  being circulated among ratepayers regarding the purchase of land for a  municipally owned light and power  plant. In bringing this matter before  the public this organisation do not  wish to go on record as favoring a  municipally owned plant, but merely  to dp their share in bringing the. matter before, the people.  South Vancouver police will in future appear on patrol, wearing the  orthodox constable's helmet instead of  the flat "Brodrick" cap formerly worn  by the municipal policemen. Helmets  were served out to the constables on  Saturday and wire worn by the men  on duty at the opening of Kingsway  on Monday.  Fire totally destroyed the home of  Mr. Harry Evans, Forty-seventh ave.  and Kerr road, Saturday evening.  There was no one in. the building  when the blaze started, and by the  time tbe firemen could reach the  scene the fire had gained too great a  hold to be. extinguished.  has taken up his residence at 430  Fifty-second Avenue Bast.

The store ot A. F. Wilbe, grocer,  South Hill, was broken into on Saturday evening. All the cash which had  been left in the till, about 76 cents,  was taken. The robber gained entrance by passing bis hand through a  hole, made by using a brace and hit,  to the key within.  Quite a feeling obtains for the incorporation into a city. The population is large and civic work could be  more easily carried on in a city than  in the more unwieldy municipality.  A lone Chinaman was on Tuesday  night held up and robbed ut the point  of a gun near the corner of Page road  and Prince Edward street. The holdup man got $12 from the Chinaman.

C McArthur 8tates That Data  He Has Collected Proves That  Project Is Quite Feasible.  Soutb Vancouver, Sept. 29.���������The  proposal to establish a public market  in South .Vancouver was advanced  another step this evening, when Mr.  J. C. McArthur reported the result of  a conference with Mr. D. E. McKenzie,  market clerk at New Westminster.  Mr. McArthur told the Board of  Trade that, according to data furnished by Mr. McKenzie the feasibility  of inaugurating a market in tbis municipality was proved and the committee  of which he was one was proceeding  with procuring additional data from  other sources, tending to show the  need for such an institution here.  The B.C.E.R. has renewed the street  car service from Victoria Road along  Kingsway to Collingwood East and It  is expected; that within a very short  time street cars will be running the  whole length of Kingsway in the municipality of South Vancouver.  At a meeting of the school board on  Tuesday evening it was decided to issue immediately letters to parents of  children attending South Vancouver  schools, giving a list of text-books supplied by the board and those expected  to be provided by the parents, together with a list of the articles supplied  to each pupil. It was proposed to  purchase sets of "The Children's En-  clypodeia," one set for each school.  The board had decided to award the  contract for next year's supplies to  Messrs. Clarke & Stuart, whose tender was less than any other firm.  Terms have been arranged for the  leasing of land, at the foot of Main  Street, from Mr. R. M. Robson, president of the Main Street Improvement  Association, for the erecting of a rubber factory costing $25,000 to manufacture all kinds of rubber goods and  particularly auto tires. The factory  will be under the management of the  Harry Sayers Rubber Co. Ltd.  Mr. and Mrs. Bulger of Ontario are  visiting Mrs. Bulger's brother, Mr.  G. W. Hamilton, of Forty-seventh Avenue East.

JOHNSTON, the Secret  Service Intelligence Bureau. Suite 103*4  319 Pender St., W.  Vancouver. B. C. THE WESTERN CALL  Friday, October 10, 1913  SHUSHANNA  In investigating the stock of the Shushanna Mining and Trading Company, Limited, we want you to appreciate and understand  FIRST���������That the Shushanna Mining and Trading Company, Limited, is  just what its name implies. It is a strictly legitimate enterprise in every  sense of the word. The affairs of the company are in the hands of a management that is experienced and able, and the reputation and standing of each  of the directors is beyond criticism.  SECOND���������The stock is being purchased from the company by the Aetna  Investment and Trust Company, who are offering it for sale.  The Aetna Investment and Trust Company was organized in Vancouver  in 1909 and is empowered to do a general trust company business. Mr. D. M.  MacGregor, a well-known member of the Vancouver and Seattle Stock Exchange, it the managing director. The other directors are men thoroughly  versed in the science of enlisting capital, and that the company will have  ample funds at its command is a certainty.  THIRD���������In buying the stock of the Shushanna Mining and Trading Company, Limited, you are buying stock in a serious legitimate business undertaking and you need have no hesitancy in recommending the purchase of  shares to your best friends.  To begin with, the Shushanna Mining and Trading Company, Limited, is  incorporated under the Companies Act of British Columbia with a capital  stock of $300,000, divided into shares of a par value of 10c each.  Now, mind you, this it a very modest capitalization. This is not any get-  rich-quick scheme with five or ten million dollars capital stock, and this fact  in itself will strongly appeal to the conservative buyer.  The management of the company is under the personal direction of Mr.  Emanuel Frank, of Dawson and Vancouver. Mr. Frank is a man of mature  years and judgment. A man that knows the business from the ground up.  A man that has amassed a fortune in this very line of business in Dawson.  Mr. Frank personally knows practically all the old-time successful mining  men in and about Dawson, and they all know him. We have yet to find a  man or firm that will speak of Mr. Frank except in the highest terms.  The other directors of the company are Mr. E. N. Winslow, Mr. William  Kennedy, Mr. H. C. Crumplin as secretary, and Messrs. Buchanan & Bull,  barristers.  The registered office of the company is at 408 Homer Street, Vancouver,  where one or more of the officers may be seen by any stock holder any day.  This company is operating along strictly co-operative,lines, and' every  share holder, no matter how small, is entitled to and receives the same consideration that is accorded any other share holder.  SHUSHANNA  The Great New Alaska Diggings  It is the aim and intention of the founders and the officers to make of  the Shushanna Mining and Trading Company, Limited, one of the .greatest  and most successful enterprises in the Canadian Northwest.  You all know of the mad rush to Nome and the great stampede to Dawson in 1897. Forty thousand men rushed into Dawson, and it is said that  "half of them turned back without ever going to the diggings, stating that  the camp was a fake and that there was nothing there. It is a significant fact  that two hundred million dollars have been taken out of the ground since  they left.  It is a fact that Seattle increased in population by over 100,000 people  as a result of mining in Dawson.  It is a fact that there are millionaires living  in Vancouver, Seattle and San Francisco and. other parts of the country whose  ' fortunes were founded upon the rush to Dawson.  Now the new discovery at Shushanna is in its infancy. The Shushanna  Mining and Trading Company, Limited, is the first up-to-date organization to  get in on the ground floor and take advantage of the wonderful money-making opportunities offered. The cream of the camp is ours, for the reason that  we are the first in the field. One man, or half a dozen men, could not do  what an organization like ours will be able to accomplish.  Shushanna is more of a proven proposition today than Nome, Dawson,  the Goldfields, or any of the other mining camps were at the same age.  Three thousand men have already rushed in there, most of them without food  or clothing.   A little digging has been done, enough t<������j������rove up the ground.  Prominent mining engineers, Government geogolists, successful mining  men, merchants, bankers and business men bave inspected the territory, and  not one intelligent person hat turned it down. This means that news of the  camn it spreading all over the civilized world.  Men are preparing to rush in as soon as spring opens. Many will go in  this winter. Food, clothing and supplies are necessary. The company first  on the ground will have a chance to sell its products at any price asked.  There is no limit to tbe amount of money tbat can be made.  The Shushanna Mining and Trading Company plans to send in all the  stores that a train of 60 horses and 20 men and unlimited money can get in  there. Mr. Frank says our profits on these stores will run from 300 per cent.  to 500 per cent, and that tbe first trainload of stuff can be sold within 10  days after it gets in there.  This is merchandising we are talking about, and our money will be invested in staple articles, sugar, flour, corned beef, hams, bacon, all bought  at the lowest wholesale price. That is a pretty safe thing to invest money  in, isn't it?  A small proportion of our profits will in turn be used to acquire claims,  mines, and to a general mining business.  The company is only two weeks old, and already it bas an option on one  of the very best properties right in the heart of the camp. Untold millions  may be taken from the ground which this company will control.  . Now the man that buys stock wants to know how this is going to benefit  him. Where he is going to make any money. Here is how. Perhaps you  remember Mohawk stock which sold in the early days of Goldfield at 10c per  share and quickly advanced on the exchange to $20.00 per share. A $10.00  buyer made $2000. A man that had $100 worth of stock at 10c cleaned up  $20,000. George Wingfield became one of the wealthiest men in the country  becaused be owned many thousands of shares.  You all know the money that has been made in mining. Many a fortune  has been made from an investment of $100 or less. Now the Shushanna Mining and Trading Company stock is selling at the first cost price of 10c per  share. If the company never takes a dollar out of the ground, if it never  secures a mine that pays, it should yet earn from 300 to SOO per cent, on its  entire invested capital because of the money that it will make from its trading posts.  In the due course of time the stock will be listed on the exchanges. The  amount of stock to be sold at 10c is almost exhausted right now, and the next  block will soon be put on sale at ISc, another at 20c, and another at 30c.  We believe that the man who buys today will have a chance to double his  money within a few weeks and to get back $3.00 between now and Christmas  for every dollar that he puts in now.  This is an opportunity that seldom offers. It won't last long. Buy  all you can afford and advise your friends to buy what they can afford,  but don t forget that if you cannot buy a big block of stock, 250 or 500 shares  may prove the nucleus of a big stake.  Now the thing for you to do is to buy some stock in this company while  you can get it at the first price. We want you with us and want your co-operation eyen though it is for only a small amount. If you can not call at our  office today, then fill out the coupon in the corner and send with your remittance. If possible call at this office any time before 6 o'clock p.m Do  not delay or you will be too late to secure the stock at this first price.  Simply fill out the application blank in the corner; then send to us with  your checque, draft or money order for the amount of stock you want at this  gfirst price.

Materialistic Evolution  (Continued from page 1)  giver who makes law and sustains both law and  force, be able to show an evolution, an upward  lift from yesterday as compared with today, then  a man may lift himself over the fence by his  boot-straps.  Evolution teaches the wold, senseless folly that  the horse of today came from a little "hippus"  hidden away in the rocks for millions of years.  This teaching means that force working on matter  lifted itself and matter higher than its own potentialities, size, and possibilities. The observer of  today can readily tell these materialistic evolutionists that instead of an uplift from day to day,  apart from intelligence, there is a steady drop  downward, a drifting back, a backsliding from  the present state or condition. Ask the farmer  and he will tell you that if his sheep are not cared  for intelligently they drift back to the common  sort. Ask the pigeon fanciers and they will  answer and say that in order to keep up the many  varieties the pigeons must be up-bred by the constantly applied intelligence and provision of  thinking, planning man. If left alone, the strange  tumbler, fan-tail and other oddities will revert  quickly to the common wood-pigeon. And in  early days if the mythical little stone "hippus"  had any entity it would have devoluted instead  of evoluted unless there were a conscious intelligence aad will operating upon it to uplift it to-  words horsehood.  Ask the botanist Burbank, if yon will, and he  will tell you that all the wonderful up-bred flowers  will, if left to Nature, fall back to the common  varieties, and in no way find themselves able to  improve and cross over into a better and higher  state. I now go this far and challenge any living  man to produce any uplift in Nature among  plants or animals wherein the uplift is not the  result of conscious intelligence determinatively  applied.  Evolution is to be seen locally in plants and  animals, but always as the result of the direct  thinkings and pfennings of man. Hence the uplift of mechanics, engines, ships, guns, bridges,  wireless, and other clearly manifested things.  Finally, any uplift discovered to date is the  result of mind directly applied, and not a little  hippus lifting itself by the boot-straps into the  splendid horsehood of today.  The wildest and most unreasonable dreamers  and teachers of this age are the men who teach  that a dead, unconscious world, universe, or a big,  blind nature can give ns more today than it had  yesterday. And if it cannot, there is absolutely  no room for materialistic evolution, the fad of the  multitudes, the leaders of whom know they are  only speculating, and that on lawless grounds.  The other men who are as illogical, and as useless, are they who in the church and out of the  church teach that God made all things in the  beginning so perfect, and set up laws so resistless  and unmodifiable as to produce everything produced down through the ages without any further  assistance from Him. These men teach that it is  folly "to go to God in prayer." They say He has  made full provision, and He will not interfere  with His creation. He is just sitting, looking on,  and touches nothing, since all is perfect. He is  just an old dead god, without the power to move,  for if He moved once, He would set up a change  and thus spoil His long-ago-perfected system.  Such a god has no standing in any sound court  of reason, and simply because he is no good to  himself or any other person or thing.  But a God who has power to do something, as  a man has from day to day, is worth while. And  such a Being I would heartily and joyously trust  and pray to for things I cannot attain unto otherwise.  There are the three plans in the main: A godless world; a world made by a god who died when  he got things into running shape; and a world  made by a being capable and able to do things  today, and work up a plan which was His ideal  when He set out. This last is my God. What is  your choice, my reader? Impossible evolutionf A  universe made by a god who cannot move! A  universe made, upheld, modified and constantly  in the process of creation by a competent, able,  wise and perfect Being t Take your choice. Mine  has been made long since, and in the face of  materialistic evolutionary humbuggery.  A TREMENDOUS CLATTER OF TONGUES  What a noise is made by the people because  the B. C. E. Ry. Co. has made a modest uplift in  its fares. One would think the crack of doom  had come. The Tram Company has done an  awful thing, a terrible thing, a vile thing���������yes,  worse than that, a business-like thing. For  twenty years or thereabouts the fares have been  at a stand-still while the employees have had  "raise after raise," and are always ready for  another wage-lift.  The cost of everything has gone up, including  wood, paint, glue, nails, screws, iron in all forms,  gold, silver, tin, nickel, lead, feathers, pills, plasters, drugs, medical fees, lawyers' fees, marriage  fees and fees of weddings and funerals. But on  no account should the fares of the B. C. E. Ry. Co.  be raised. They should pay more for everything  in and out of sight but keep down the fares, just  because the people will howl. The councils raise  a hue and cry. The demagogues howl. The  ratepayers in ward or other centres raise a cry.  The men who walk mutter curses, and it becomes  a most popular thing to curse the Company from  every point of the compass.  In twenty years the carpenters and all other  tradesmen have had their wages increased nearly  one hundred-fold. And yet the B. C. E. Ry. Co.  is a public enemy when it comes up a bit, somewhat like the rest of those who are working for  money. I am surprised to hear some men finding  fault. They cry like spoiled children about a  few cents per month in the way of tram fares;  and as they howl they chew and spit tobacco  juice enough while fault-finding to pay for these  extra cents the Company charges. Cigars, tobacco in all its forms, and intoxicating liquors  can take away from these grumblers ten times  the money that the Company takes in a legitimate  manner, and yet the grumblers will stand the loss  of money without grumbling, at the loss of time  and good sense they are robbed of in the liquor-  quaffing and tobacco-puffing process.  I pity the poor fellows who are ever ready to  take all they are able to get, and grumble when  their neighbors do likewise.   Play your game like  men.  By Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.

Name      Street   *   Address     Victoria, B. C, Sept. 30, 1913.  The Department of Agriculture, in  accordance with its policy of the past  four years, will continue the.fruit  packing schools during the coming  winter. The packing schools proved  even more popular in 1913 than previously, and we expect that there will  be a growth in the work this winter.  It is hoped that this year schools will  be placed in every fruit district of the  Province where a sufficient number  of pupils can be secured.  The class of instruction furnished  by the experts employed by the Department, in previous years has demonstrated its efficiency in meeting  the competition of Oregon and Wasb>  ington in fruit packing. The experience and standing of the instructors  secured and the confidence reposed  in them by the Department, guarantee to the fruit growers the highest  class of instruction.  As in previous years, the local administration of the packing schools  will be placed in the hands of a responsible local body, such as the  Farmers' Institute, the Fruit Growers' Association or the Board of  Trade.  The Department of Agriculture  provides the instructor, and pays his  expenses. The Department will also  bear the cost of the packing paper,  the fruit and all other legitimate expenses, except that of the Secretarial  work, which it has been found most  satisfactory to leave to local arrangement, and the rent of the hall, and  its heating and lighting.  The responsible organization in  each case will be required to guarantee a minimum of twelve pupils, but  not more than fifteen with the proper  qualifications, at a fee of $3 each, to  take the twelve lessons of two and a  half hours a lesson, the school extending over the week. In a limited  number of districts a double packing  school can be arranged for, in which  the minimum guarantee will be  twenty-four pupils, but not more than  thirty, for the same number of lessons.  The hail for fifteen pupils must be  at least 30 feet by IS feet, and well  lighted. It must be sufficiently  heated to prevent chilling of the fingers of the packers, and to prevent  freezing of the fruit at night.  The Department will as far as pos  sible, use the local fruit. At the time  of making application for the packing  sctibol, you are required to reserve  fruit at the .rate of 2 1-2 to 3 boxes  per pupil. The harder varieties, such  as Ben Davis, are preferred. Fruit  must be in good condition, but need  not be graded and none should run  under 2 1-4 inches in diameter. The  Department will pay the legitimate  market price as determined by the  Instructor on inspection.  If local fruit cannot be secured,  the Department should be expressly  notified and will undertake to secure  same.  The instructor will bring with him  the necessary packing tables and fruit  paper. The Department expects that  he will be met on his arrival by some  responsible person, who should provide him with the necessary information, so as to get tbe school under  way without loss of time.  It seems hardly necessary to present to you the important advantages  to be gained from the packing school,  particularly in the way of practical  and thorough instruction in actual  commercial packing.  Fruit growing will gain, in addition, a good deal of information about  the methods and equipment used by  the   most   progressive   associations;  also about the - interpretation of  the Fruit Marks Act, and about exhibition packing by attending the  packing school for instruction.  Pupils who gain a score of 75% for  efficiency in the packing school, and  who put up a creditable pack for the  Department prizes the following autumn, will receive a diploma certifying to the same from the Department. Yours truly,  WM. E. SCOTT,  Deputy Minister.  GRADING,  PACKING AND  MARKING FRUIT  September 19th, 1913.  While  the   great   majority  of   our  fruit   growers  and  shippers  are   endeavoring,    usually    successfully,   tc  live fully up to the requirements of  : the Fruit Marks Act (Inspection and  Sales Act, Part 9), it is to be regretted that some fruit is still being  poorly    packed      and      improperly  | graded, and some fruit packages are  falsely marked.  The Dominion Fruit Inspectors in  the Province and in the Prairies are  successfully securing the marking of  imported fruit, as required by the new  laws passed at the request of the B.  C. Fruit Growers' Association. There  has not been a similar readiness to  observe the law on the part of our  own fruit growers, which puts the  Association and furit growers generally in an unfair position. All B. C.  growers should be willing to assist  the Association in its efforts to protect the industry, by themselves  meeting the law's requirements.  Their violations are due, doubtless,  to ignorance of what js required.  We urge every packer and shipper of  fruit to procure a copy of the act  from the chief Dominion Inspector,  R. G. L. Clarke, ISS Water street,  Vancouver, and read and master its  contents. This must result in a better pack of fruit, better prices, and a  higher reputation, which, in turn, insures more stable markets in fueure  years.  Some of our growers are liable to  prosecution for violation of the Act;  we hope that the number of such  cases will diminish, because the prosecution of the individual hurts not  only himself but the reputation of  B. C. fruit growers collectively.  Growers and packers should also  secure copies of the circulars on  "Methods of Fruit Packing and  Handling" and "Fruit Packing," issued by the Provincial Department of  Agriculture, obtainable on request  from the Department at Victoria or  from any assistant horticulturist. The  Act states the law's requirements;  the circulars outline the methods of  picking, handling, grading and packing to meet the requirements of the  law and the market.  There must be continual progress  in the methods of preparing fruit for  the market, if our fruit industry is to  overcome its keen competition and  take its place as one of the principal  industries ofthe Province. There  must also be continued effort by all  our growers to keep our fruit pack  honest and uniformly reliable, and  to raise the standard higher each  year. The more favorable markets  and prices of the current season,  tempt many to relax their efforts, resulting in lower grades. The bad  results of this practice are liable to  be severely felt next season, when  the expected bumper crops over the  Northwest States will make the markets mitch more critical towards  poor packing than this year.

Dear Sir: The following resolution  waa unanimously adopted at the meeting of Ward 7 Ratepayers' Association, Hastings Townsite, on October  7th, 1913:���������"Whereas: The influx of  Asiatics ot British Columbia continues to increase at an alarming rate,  and It will have a tendency to lower  our social, economical and moral conditions, this association places itself  on record as being strongly opposed  to any further entrance of Asiatics  into British Columbia, and we ask that  auch legislation ahall be brought down  that will totally exclude Asiatics from  entering Canada in the future, and we  pray that you will use your best en*  deavors to forward this cause which  la to and in the beat Interests of the  citizens of British Columbia."  The following was sent to the Western Call for publication:  Vancouver, B. C, Oct. 8, 1913.  To Aids. Black, Hepburn  and Clelland.  Dear Sirs: I herewith beg to submit  resolution passed at the ratepayers'  meeting of Ward 7, October 7th, 1913.  We unanimously adopt and substantiate the free speech method being  pursued by Alderman Mahon in reference to criticisms of the Hospital  Board, which In our estimation was  brought forward at the proper time,  vis., at a regular meeting of the Alder*  manic Board of the City of Vancouver,  dealing with the subject above named,  relating to estimates of the General  Hospital. We deem it unjust and  unwise that the Hospital Board should  carry this needless lawsuit further.  We as taxpayers vigorously protest  and pray that you will use your best  efforts to quell this matter, as in our  opinion it will materially affect the  hospital from a moral point of view,  Bince, as they are obliged to appeal to  the public for funds, we are certain  that if the Hospital Board do not  desist in the method adopted, that it  will eventually destroy the confidence  now held by the public in the wisdom ���������  of their methods of handling hospital  funds. If the duly ordained Board of  Aldermen, vis., the Hospital Committee, demand from them an accounting,  we deem it unbusinesslike on the part  of the Hospital Board to object to  render such account as would be no  more than right In any mercantile  institution.  Hoping that you will use your beat  endeavors to see that this matter is  Placed before the Hospital Board In  a proper and sane light, we beg to  remain, yours very respectfully,  Secy.-Treas.  Ratepayers* Assn.,  Ward 7, Hastings Townsite.  INTERNATIONAL FORESTRY.  Permanent   Commission   Started   By  F������rl������ Forestry Congress.  Probably the most important result  of tbe International Forestry Congress, held in Paris last June, was the  creation of the International Forestry  Commission, having for its object the  furthering of forestry principles and  the convoking, when necessary, of In*  ternational Forestry Congress at  which legislative and administrative  questions pertaining to the forest shall  be brought up for discussion.  The temporary officials, consisting  of a president, vice-president, secretary-treasurer and executive committee, were chosen largely from the  French foresters, and legislators, who  were present at the convention, while  fortytwo of the representatives of the  foreign countries who were present at  the convention made up the body of  the Commission. The Touring Club  of France, one of the moBt influential  bodies of private cltisens In Europe,  offered their hotel in Paris as a temporary headquarters for the Commission.  It Is likely that this Commission will  take over the publication of International forestry statistics, now being  occasionally Issued In the bulletins of  the International Institute of Agriculture, which was established at Rome  in 1910. This latter Institute, publishing monthly statistics of the world's  agricultural crops, has more than Justified Its existence, and the International Forestry Commission will prove  Justifiable for similar reasons. Moreover, it will make possible the spreading and co-ordinating of scientific forestry knowledge, which is at present  largely restricted to Europe, where it  Is put to most practical application.  The Commission will also facilitate  the assembling of forestry congresses,  international ln their scope, at which  questions of present concern to all  foresters may be discussed, such as  the right of the government to expropriate misused private lands when  their reforesting is necessary for the  protection of the watersheds of navi- *  gable streams. Such a congress might  profitably be held in Canada, and  would be Justified by the extremely  rapid progress made in forestry by  the Dominion Government in recent  years. That such a congress would  be a success Is assured by the Urge  conventions of the Canadian Fbrestry  Association in Victoria and Winnipeg. Friday. October 10.1913  THE WESTERN CALL.

I turned without another word, fully
realising the danger, the necessity of
action. Her hand touched mine as I
grasped the rein.
"We part friends," she said softly.
"Some day you may understand and
forgive me."
"I understand now more than you

I Uncover Captain Qrgnf.
Tbe thicket was sufficiently dense to
conceal ns from the man, who remained standing at tbe foot of the
steps. He was but a mere dark shadow, and I could not even distinguish
that he was a soldier, yet the dinger
of his presence was sufficiently great
for should he advance to the right he
would come upon Grant's unconscious
form, and in tbat silence the slightest
noise might arouse suspicion. Mistress
Claire still clung to my hand, hot only
to whisper a sentence of Instruction.
"Go straight north, major, until you
reach the hedge; follow the shadow
of that beyond the orchard, and then
take the road running westward.
Don't mount until you reach tbere���
:   "Goodby. you will not forget me?"
/ "I���I am afraid not, but���but you
!n\ust go!"
I left her standing there, a faint
,gleam of white against the dark shrubbery, motionless.
There is no incident of that night's
ride which I recall distinctly. I merely pushed on steadily through the
darkness, leaving my mount to choose
his own course, confident we were
headed toward the river. I was sufficiently acquainted with the valley of
the Delaware, v,h��n daylight came, to
decide upon the nearest ford. As to
the British patrols, I must run the risk
of dodging these, but felt safe from
such an encounter for several hours.
In truth I met no one, having no occasion to even draw rein, although we
passed through two small villages, and
by a number of farms. I could noi
even determine that these houses were
occupied; they were dark and silent,
even the galloping hoofs of my horse
failing to awaken response.
It was already daylight when I drew
up on the bluff summit to gase down
into the river valley. In the middle
distance small villages faced each
other across the stream, and toward
these most of the roads converged���
proof of the existence of a ford. I
could not be mistaken aa to the town
���Burlington on the Jersey shore, and
opposite Bristol. I should be safe
enough in the latter, even if we had
no outpost stationed there. I knew
homes along those shaded streets,
where food would be forthcoming, and
where I could probably procure a fresh
horse. It was tbe nearer town, nestled
on the Jersey bank, that I studied
with the greatest care, but, so far as
I could see, the single street was deserted. To the south, certainly two

aB soon aa the news gets out about
Elmhurst FAGIN."
So that was the reason for this raid
���Grant's personal affair. He had returned to Elmhurst, leaving his men
to trudge on into Philadelphia under
their Hessian officers so that he might
communicate with Fagin. What a pity
It was I had failed to kill the fellow,
instead of leaving bim unconscious.
The papers! Perhaps they were In
the coat also. Surely Grant had no
time to change or destroy them, as he
most have ridden directly to Elmhurst
I searched the pockets of tbe garment
hastily, finding a note or two, bis
orders to escort Delavan, and a small
packet tied securely by a cord. 1 felt
no hesitancy in opening tbis, and as*
certaining its contents. Tbe lines I
read hastily seemed to blur before my
eyes; 1 could barely comprehend their
purport Little by little I grasped the
meaning of it all, and then my mind
leaped to recognition of Grant's pur*
pott,  Thoy were notes of instruction.
I Head the Ulnes Almost st a Qlgnee
and Suddenly Realised the ������������
Vlllalnly Revealed.
brief orders, suggestions, memoranda,
such as might be issued to a secret
agent greatly trusted. These were addressed simply "Mortimer," many unsigned, others marked by Initials, but
I Instantly recognised the handwriting
of Washington, Hamilton and Lee.
Without question this packet was the
property ot Eric Mortimer, but why
bad tbe boy preserved these private
instructions, covering months of operations, I should Judge, although
scarcely one was dated? And what
caused them to be of value to Captain Grant?
The answer came in a flash of suspicion���the colonel. He could be threatened with them, blackmailed, dis-
graoed before Sir Henry Clinton, driven from bis command. They were addressed merely to "Mortimer," discovered at Elmhurst, and were sufficient
to convtet of treason. It was a fiendish plot, well conceived, and Grant
was fully capable of carrying it out
!to the end. I could realize what the
[possession of these papers meant to
���him���military advancement, a distribution of the Mortimer estate in which
'he would doubtless share, and a fresh
[hold on Claire whereby he could ter*
jrify the girl into accepting them.
I stood there in uncertainty, turning
these papers over and over in my
>hands, striving to determine my duty.
Should I return to Elmhurst? To do
;SO would only bring me into renewed
peril, and would apparently benefit no
one. Without this packet Grant was
helpless to injure Colonel Mortimer.
As to Claire, Seldon would protect her
for tbe present, and as soon as the
father returned, he would doubtless
compel her to accompany him back to
Philadelphia. The best service I could
render was to destroy these notes, and
then seek ouc Eric Mortimer, In Lee's
camp, and tell him the whole story.
;A11 that anyone could do now was to
.warn the Mortimers against Grant, to
���let them know hiB treachery, and this
could be be3t accomplished through
Eric. Although in different armies,
striving against each other in the
field, there must still exist some means
of communication between father and
son, or, if not, then between brother
and sister. .
With flint and steel I built a small
fire of leaves in a cleft beside the
road, and fed to the flames one by one
the papers from the packet, glancing
over each one again to make sure of
its contents; all were addressed alike,
simply "Mortimer," but upon two I
found the word "Elmhurst." It was
easy to see how the discovery of such
communications would tempt an unscrupulous scoundrel like Grant to use
them to injure another, and win his
own end, but why had that young Brio
failed to destroy them as soon as received?
When the last paper had been reduced to ashes, I stamped out the embers of flre under my boot heel, and,
with lighter heart, rode down the hill
toward the ford.
Between Love and Duty.
It was already growing dusk when I
rode into our lines at Valley Forge.
A brief Interview with Colonel Hamilton revealed his appreciation of my
work, and that my hastily made notes
of the Philadelphia defenses had been
received twenty-four hours earlier.
They had been delivered at headquarters by an officer of Lee's staff; no,
not a boyish-looking fellow, but a
black-bearded captain whose name had
been forgotten. All Hamilton could
remember was that the notes had been
originally brought in by an Indian
scout Eager to discover Eric Mortimer, I asked a week's release from
duty, but there was so much sickness
in the camp, tbat this request was refused, and I was ordered to my regiment.
Busy days and nights of fatigue followed. Washington, watching like a
hawk every movement of Sir .Henry
Clinton in Philadelphia, convinced by
every report received that he was
about to evacuate the city, bent all
bis energies toward placing his little
army in fit condition for battle. Some
recruits were received, tbe neighboring militia were drawn upon, and men
were taken from the hospitals, and
put back Into the ranks as soon as
strong enough to bear arms. Inspired
by the indomitable spirit of our com*
mander, the line officers worked Incessantly in the welding together of their
commands. I scarcely knew what
sleep was, yet the importance of the
coming movement of troops held me
steadfast to duty. Word came to us
early in June that Count d'Estalng,
with a powerful French fleet, was approaching the coast. This surely
meant tbat Clinton would be compelled to retreat across the Jerseys,
and a portion of our troops were advanced so as to be wltbtn easy striking distance of tbe city the moment
tbe evacuation took place. The remaining commands pressed farther
north, near convenient crossings of
the Delaware, prepared for a forced
[march across the British line of retreat Maxwell's brigade, with which
I wao connected, even crossed the
jriver In advance, co-operating with
'General Dickinson and his New Jersey
'militia. All was excitement commotion, apparently disorder, yet even
amid tbat turmoil of approaching bat*
tie, Hamilton recalled nay request, and
granted me two days' leave.. His brief
note reached "me at Coryell's Ferry,
and, an hour later, I was riding swiftly
across the country to where Lee had
Not once during all tbose days and
'nights had the memory of Claire left
me. Over and over in my mind I bad
reviewed all that had ever occurred
between us, striving in vain to guess
the riddle. Now I would see and talk
with her brother, and perhaps obtain
the explanation needed. Yet I have
gone Into battle wltb less trepidation
than when I rode into Lee's headquarters, and asked his chlef-of-staff for
Eric Mortimer. He looked at me
strangely, as I put the question.
"I should be very glad to oblige you,
Major Lawrence," he replied gravely,
"but unfortunately I have no present
knowledge of the young man."
; "But he was attached to General
Lee's staff?"
"Only ln a way���he was useful to
us as a scout because of his intimate
knowledge of the Jerseys. His home,
I understand, was near Mount Holly."
"What bas become of him?"
"All I know is, he was sent out on
a special mission, .by Washington's
own orders, nearly a month ago. We
have not directly heard from him
since. An Indian brought a partial report of his operations up to that time;
sinoe then we have received nothing."
"An Indian" I exclaimed. "The same
who brought ln my notes?"
��� "I believe so; yes, now that I recall
jthe matter. I had no opportunity to
[question the fellow; be simply left tbe
{papers with the orderly, and disap-
i   "And you have heard nothing from
[young Mortimer since?"
"Not a word."
"He must be dead, or a prisoner."
The chief smiled rather grimly.
,   "Or deserted," he added sharply.   **I
jam more inclined toward that theory.
[He was a reckless young devil, attracted to our service more, it seemed to
jme, by a spirit of dare-deviltry than
patriotism.   Lee thought well of him,
[but I was always suspicious.    He belonged to a family of loyalists, his farther a colonel of   Queen's   Rangers.
[IDid you know him, Lawrence?"
���I   "The father, not the son.   But I am
"not willing to believe evil of the boy.
I cannot conceive that treachery is in
the Mortimer blood, sir, and shall have
to be convinced before I condemn the
lad. When did he leave here last?"
"About the middle of May."
"Would you mind telling me his mis-

face; then ran hastily over a package

In celebrating the many Important
events in history from the birth of
great men to the beginning of great industries we have overlooked the centenary of one event which had a great
influence on the development of our
civilization. For it was Just 100 years
ago that the first locomotive to do
train hauling was set to work at some
coal mines in England.
The idea of using steam for propelling land carriages has been discussed
in a half-hearted way by the philosophers who lived in the declining years
of the French monarchy. From the
great amount of talk and discussion
little was actually accomplished. An
offlcer in the French army did Invent
an engine which uBed highpressure
steam in 1770. It was intended for
military purposes, but as it could
make a speed of only about three
miles an hour with great effort it did
not prove successful.
Several years later  William Mur-
dock,   an   assistant of  Boulton   sjhd
Watt,  the- engine  builders,  made  a
road engine which he ran around the
country roads pf England.    But the
development of the high-speed engine
was due chiefly to the efforts of an
American    inventor,   Oliver    Evans.
Evans built a dredging scow weighing
about two tons, which he mounted on
wheels   and   propelled  through   the
streets of Philadelphia.   The first attempt to run a steam-driven vehicle
on rails was made by Richard Tre-
vithick ln 1803.   An engine was made
which pulled a few cars, but it was
so complicated that it was impracticable for regular work, and this was
abandoned after a few trials.
For the next ten years tbere was
considerable effort made to produce a
locomotive that would work satisfactorily. But it was in the coal mines
in the north of England that the first
success was attained. The only method tbat was at first used to transport
the coal was by pack horse. Then
when the roads for wheeled carriages
were introduced, 'and this first step
in mechanical appliance increased the
load than one horse would carry.
Tbe next improvement was the laying of wooden bars or rails for the
carts to run on, and this was followed
by the substitution of a four-wheeled
wagon for a two-wheeled cart. Then
slips of iron were attached to the
wooden rails. Soon after this came the
Iron tramway, the upright flange of
the bar acting as a guide to keep the
wheel on the track. The next logical
step, of course, was the transferring
of the flange to the wheel, an improvement which enabled cast-iron edge
rails to be used.
All these improvements, of course,
made the transportation of coal much
more rapid, and meant a great gain in
profits. Two workmen in the employ
of the Wylam Colliery, who were
above the common mechanics, took a
keen interest in mechanical traction.
One was William Hedley, and the
other Timothy Hackworth. Hedley
superintended a series of experiments
with rails, and found that the ordinary weight of a locomotive would
prevent the wheels from slipping. One
of the chief faults of Trevithick's locomotive was that the power was too
great for the weight available for adhesion.���North Shore Press.

The greatest building activity, at  present, seems to centre around North  Lonsdale where some half dozen handsome residences are being put up.  Among the permits taken out during the present month are the following: Mr. Edward McKae, house on  Eleventh Street East, costing 2,000;  Mr. J. S. Reid, house on Sixth Street  East, costing $2,300; Mrs. L, Cameron,  dwelling on.Sixteenth Street, costing  $1,700, and Mrs. Lutalieu, house on  Fifth Street, costing $1,400.  The pile driver bf the P.6.E. is approaching the city wharf, and the railway company have applied to the  council for a turning place at the  foot of Chesterfield Avenue.

"Springrldge" Lodge No. 79 International Order of Good Templars, held  their usual weekly meeting in tbe  Cedar Cottage Hall, Friday evening  last.   The delegates from the recent  piled from the reports of correspondents upon the appearance of these  crops.  The weather conditions were favorable for ripening and harvesting the  grain crops. In Ontario it was nearly all harvested by the end of the  month, while in the Prairie provinces harvesting operations were  about two-thirds. completed, and it  was expected that threshing would be  general by September 10. In the  Maritime provinces the harvest is  more backward, being only general  about the end of the month. The  average condition of spring wheat is  88.43 per cent, of the standard of a  full crop, which is represented by 100;  oats, 87.85; barley, 87.07; rye, 80.49;  peas, 80.81; beans, 78.67; buckwheat,  77.81.; mixed grains,J89.04; fjax, 85.06;  corn, 79.78. On the whole these figures maintain the high standard set  by last month's report and marks an  advancement for spring wheat, oats  and flax. Compared with the figures  at the corresponding- date last year,  wheat is 88 to 84; oats and barley  stand at 88 for each season; rye, 80  to 84; mixed grains 89 to 87; flax, 85  to 88. Potatoes are 86 against 89 last  month, and 92 last year; turnips arc  84 for both this month and last, as  against 88 last year; mangolds are  83 against 84 last month and 87 last  condition fairly well since last month,  having only lost one point, the figures  being 81 against 82 last month and  92 a year ago.  From the reports furnished by correspondents preliminary estimates of  yield are based on the areas sown. Of  spring wheat the average yield per  acre is provisionally placed at 21.41  bushels per acre, which, upon an  area of 8,990,5000 acres, makes the total yield of spring wheat to be 192,-  517,000 bushels. This quantity added  to 18,481, 800 bushels of fall wheat as  published last month, gives the total  production of wheat as compared  with the final estimates for 1912 of  199,236,000 bushels, and for 1911 of  215,851,000 bushels. The yield per  acre in 1912 was 20.99 bushels for  fall wheat and 20.37 bushels for  spring wheat.  Oats, with an average yield of 40.98  bushels per acre on 9.646.400 acres,  gives a total production of 395,341,-  000 bushels as against an average  yield of 39.25 bushels and a total yield  of 361,733,000 bushels in 1912.  Barley, with a yield per acre of  31.05 bushels and a total yield of 44,-  440,000 bushels as compared with an  average yield of 31.10 bushels and a  total of 44,014,000 bushels in 1912.  The estimated yield of rye is 2,-  425,000 bushels for 127,200 acres, being a yield per acre of 19.06 bushels as  against a total of 2,594,000 bushels in  1912.  For the three Northwest provinces  the total yield of spring wheat is  estimated at 188.018,000 bushels, oats,  44,125,000 bushels; barley at 28,156,000  bushels, rye at 612,000 and flax at 15,-  056,000 bushels, as compared with a  total yield in 1912 for spring wheat  of 183,322,000 bushels, oats at 221.-  857,000 bushels, and barley of 26,-  671.000 bushels.  The general condition of live stock  is very satisfactory, being expressed  in percentages of a standard of 100  representing a healthy and thrifty  state, as 94.27 for horses, 91.37 for  milch cows, and for other cattle 93.54-  for sheep 90.41. and for swine 94.83.

Experiments recently conducted at  Queen's University, Kingston, show  conclusively that the dark-coloured  liquor obtained as.a waste product in  the manufacture of sulphite wood-pulp  makes a better dressing for public  highways than the low-grade oils now  used. The two treatments were compared under identical conditions, and  it was found that the same quantity of  concentrated (four to one) waste  liquor will last longer than road-oil  when subject to the .washing of rain,  and has the additional advantage of being free from nauseating odor so objectionable in low-grade oils. The  Laurentide Pulp and Paper Company  have been using this waste liquor for  a considerable time on the streets of  Grand Mere, Quebec, where their mills  are located, and find it very satisfactory.  The Bulletin on Pulpwood recently  issued by the Dominion Forestry  Branch at Ottawa, states that one-  third of the pulpwood used in Canada  in 1912 was manufactured into pulp  by the sulphite method, the other wood  constituents being dissolved out by a  solution of calcium sulphate and piped  nto the rivers as waste liquor. Thus  one-half of every cord of pulpwood  becomes absolute waste, as also the  140 lbs. of sulphur used in its dissolution, for the sulphur becomes so  combined organically that it cannot be  economically recovered.  It is calculated that material valued  at over one and a quarter million dollars is thus wasted in Canada each  year.  The utilization of this enormous  waste is, therefore, a very important  covered by insurance.  I problem in Canada, where an increasing amount of sulphite pulp is being  manufactured every year. As a temporary expedient, the use of this waste  liquor as a road dressing is to be desired, for it would prevent the contamination of the rivers on which sul-  evening was,  "Should  the   Power  of  ~v,lte raiiJs are situated.
