[The following address was delivered in Orange  Ball on Monday evening, September 22, by Jtev.  A. E* Cooke:]  Mr. Chairman Etc:  I am not a politician. Nor do I appear to-night  as a political speaker. Not that I cdnsider the  business of the politician so reprehensible that J  should refuse to make a political speech if the  occasion demanded it. 1 am far from holding the  opinion of a certain gentleman of my own profession whose only son was, some years ago, giving signs of a very precocious manhood. The  father was much exercised as to what the boy  should take up as his life-work a little later. But  at last he hit on an original plan to discover for  what he was best adapted. One evening he said  to his wife, "My dear, I am going to find out  what our boy will be in the future. You and 1  will run over next door for a few minutes and  leave him behind. When we come back if he is  reading the Bible ahd has forgotten the dollar  and the apple, then he will follow myself and  enter the church. If he is hanging on to the  dollar, regardless of the others, we will make a  banker out of him. But if he is eating the apple  and paying no attention to the Bible or dolalr���������  well! he'll have to be put to farming or fruit  growing." So a little later he supplied the five-  year-old with Bible, apple and dollar, and he and  his wife slipped out to the neighbor's. In a short  time they returned to find the boy sitting on the  Bible, hugging the dollar and eating the apple.  The parson studied the situation for a moment,  then turned to his wife and said: "Wife, this  boy's a hog, we'll make a politician out of him!"  Now I need scarcely say I do not regard all  politicians in that light. I realize that they fill  a very necesary and worthy place in the economy  of our civilization, but I do not aspire to the political platform to-night. Home Hole for Ireland  ii aa much a social and religious question at a  political, and being an Irishman who ii aa devoted to the cause of his country as the most  ardent Nationalist, I would simply seek, in the  light of history and the present crisis, to answer  fairly and plainly the question, "Should Ireland  Have Home Rule!"  It seems to me, Mr. Chairman, eminently fitting  that in this building and on this night of all others,  this should be our subject. Just 118 years ago  last night, there had ended one of those fierce and  desperate struggles on Irish soil, of which the  historian takes but little notice, but which in  their effects on the character and destiny of, the  Irish people have had tremendous power. "The  Battle of the Diamond" was no ordinary faction  fight. Thousands seem to have been engaged in  mental combat at the little village of the Diamond,  six miles from the ancient city of Armagh, and  the dead were not only scattered over the scene  of the struggle, but found rotting amid the grain  of- the neighboring fields when the harvest was  afterwards reaped... It was the culmination of a  lengthy series of attacks on the peaceful inhabit-  -jwits of the Northern counties. It was the desperate but victorious effort of the outraged and exasperated Protestants against a protracted series  of crimes and butcheries that stain the page of  Ireland with crimson horror. Those were fearful  days in Ireland that preceded the rebellion of '98.  Sedition was in the air. The fires of discontent  and rebellion were smouldering on every hill.  Prom over the seas every wind brought sounds of  strife and warfare on the plains of Europe. Blood  thirsty, brutal, secret societies, such as the Ra-  (Contlnued on page 4)  Better Packing and Shipping Facilities Needed���������Growers are Handicapped  '.,������������������������������������'''. ��������� ��������� j  With Religious Prejudice  IRISH HOME RULE A FRAUD  What is Treason?  > ��������� .   ...... ,    ���������   ��������� .���������������������������- ji.,. ���������   , ���������,. ,  If a man betrays his cbuntry into hands of an enemy he is guilty of treason; if  he fights against his country, it is the crime of treason; if he seeks to undermine  or injure the stability ofthe government of his country it istreason.  If a man has money (the recognized medium of exchange) under his control,  if he is licensed by the government to carry on a banking business under certain  rules, if he breaks these rules, if he ruins the business and the lives of his fellow  citizens by so doing, what is he guilty of?

How di<H*e get'  it?. How many of his fellow citizens has Ihe ruined? or, perhaps, oiUy partly,  ruined, that is only a question of degree. Judas was a gentleman compared to'  scores of these human business vultures operating in Vancouver; he sought t# return the price he received for his treason* while the local Judas' hug their "sixty  per cent" treasure to their ghoul-like bosoms and pose in a "more righteous than  thou" attitude.  ACASE TO POINT.  Here is an example: An honest old-timer gave a man notes for $75,000.00; he  had substantial and ample assets with whiph to redeem the notes; but it was understood that these notes were to be paid out of the proceeds of a large sale. The  recipient of tiie notes took them to one of these modern Shylocks, who happens to  be a bank official, who discounted them at 50 per cent.!!! That is, he gave, in cash,  one-half their value (What about that for a discount?).He had not the decency  to advise the citizen who gave the notes, but when they became due, demanded payment, thus making about $37,000.00. How would you classify such a man? Is he  a patriot ? Is he a benefactor to Jus country ? Is he loyal to the spirit of the banking act? Has he played the part of a good citizen and an honest business man?  We know he is none of these. He is the tyjie^hich would have "sold his Master  for thirty pieces of silver.*' ^4*  Men of that kinU must be bra^^  ped.   No community or country can long survive such operations as that.  We, as Canadian citizens, should demand a limit of twelve per cent on all  money loans or equivalent advances.  Okanagan Fruit Growing;  Some grim rumors have been current recently about the "Fruit Industry"  of the Okanagan. It was reported that there was such an over-production that the  growers were allowing the fruit to rot on the trees, and that tons of peaches and  other fruits were going to waste. This statement has a modicum of truth in it, but  is entirely misleading. The impression conveyed is that fruit growing is a failure.  That is not so. Fruit growing in the Okanagan is now an assured and permanent  industry. It is just developing from the experimental to the commercial stage,  and that period of transition is always a very anxious one.  Are there tons of peaches rotting on the gr6und? Yes, of certain varieties.  Why? Not because they are of a poor quality, not because there is no market for  them, but because the system used to bring the grower and the consumer together  is a faulty one; and, further, because some of the varieties grown are not good  canning fruit or good shippers, that is, for shipping under existing conditions.  There is a peach called the "Triumph" which is an early fruit, but is a "clingstone," therefore the canning factory refuse them. It ripens early and is of most  excellent flavor. There is no reason in the world why it should not be shipped to  the coast and sold for table use or for preserving. In Ontario the housewife prefers the cling-stone for preserving; it is a matter of custom. This Triumph peach  is the variety "rotting" on the ground, not because it is not good, but, first, because  the cannery refuses it, and, secondly, because it was left too long and became too  ripe to ship with existing facilities.  Kelowna ships an average of eight carloads of peaches a day. There are upwards of sixteen carloads despatched daily from Vernon. Yet this could have been  doubled this season had there been a better system of handling and marketing.  All the fruit that has been shipped was sold beforehand and none on consignment.  There are several fruitgrowers' "Unions" which are doing good work, but these  are not comprehensive enough in their methods. They should be so broad in their  organization as to include the smallest to the largest grower, and with perfect  equality in treatment. They should have selling agents throughout the Northwest  and in the Coast cities and place their fruit either direct to the consumer, or to the  retailer, cutting out, as far as possible, the costly commission house. Then they  must have better shipping facilities. There is'enough fruit grown in the Okanagan  to warrant the C. P. R. putting on a refrigerator fruit train daily, direct to a  suitable distributing point. This train must be a through fast freight. The express  charge from Penticton to Calgary is now fifty cents per box, and the freight  charge seventeen cents per box. The slow freight carriage is useless, consequently  the fruit is usually shipped by express. This is profitable to the railways but is  suicidal to the industry and ruinous to the consumer. The railivays must supply  the facilities and it is up to the growers to make their appeal to the Railway Commission, which should receive the unstinted support of the whole community.  Then there must be larger and better packing facilities and more extensive  canning establishments, which should be supplemented by a large jam f actory, to  take care of the fruit too ripe to ship; an evaporating plant should also be tried  with such facilities as these the crop could be handled with comparative ease.  There is a shortage of "packers" just now, but this will remedy itself, very  largely as soon as it becomes known that there is certain and steady emphmnent  in this line during fruit season, and when the grower realizes that fruit growing  is a business like farming, at which his whole family may work, and not a "gentleman's job."  As To Quality.  Some clitics will say that the Okanagan peaches are not equal in flavor to California or Niagara peaches.   This is wholly wrong���������Okanagan peaches are equal to  (Continued on Page 4)  Let us suppose a case, one well in hand by the  Canadian reading public.  Suppose Bourassa started out on a campaign to  teach the Canadian electorate how to give Quebec  Home Rule. How would he begin, and how  would he continue, and how would Canadians  treat his teaching T Here are three plain questions, and all easily understood.  Bourassa has delivered himself as to how he  would handle not only Quebec, but just what he  would do with Canada. He tells the world that  he would separate Canada from the Empire and  have Canadians go their journey alone. Tfcis  means that he teaches not only separation of  Canada from the rest of "Pax Britannica," but  he would break the Empire just by that much;,1  mean by the measurement of the power, influence,'  wealth and area of Canada.  Do Canadians foiv a moment disbelieve Bourassa  when he so teaches f If so, they arc ordinary  fools and dolts. Now if Bourassa undertook to  ask Home Rule for Quebec, would.he mean that he  aimed at keeping Quebec in the Dominion under  the British-flag and as a part of the EMPIB8T  Certainly not. Hia one aim would be juat that  which it is at present, viz., to separate from the  Union Jack and aU things British, whieh he and  his coadjutor^hate most perfectly.  This is just what the Irish Home Rulers have  undertaken. They aim at only one thing in the  main. It is this: the Separation of Ireland from  Britain. They publicly teach thie> and;'have ao  taught for flfty yeaj-s. I do not know that the  Irish Home Rule Bill has appeared in the Canadian press in full. It h& not so appeared in the  Vancouver papers, and the public have no press  information as to the intent of that Pill.  A friend of iriine sent for it and gave it to me  for perusal. It is a longt and complicated document. However, that which is clearly made out  of a careful reading is this: It prepares for a  final separation of Ireland from Britain, and  Asquith, Lloyd-George and their Irish masters  know this to be a fact. Here, then, is where I am  forced to come, after reading carefully that document.  Asquith and bis clear-headed British co-workers  are political traitors, and know it, or they WUJ  not nnish the task they aro pretending to complete  for the Irish Empire wreckers. It is deep down  in my heart that Asquith found he was in the  meshes of Irish intrigue, an intrigue originated in  Rome by the Pope and Cardinals, and furthered  by every British hater in and out of the Empire:  He so found himself, and decided to meet these  scoundrels by an intrigue of a deeper and more  crafty character.  They undertook to handle and foree his hands.  He apparently complied, and thus fpr years has  secured their strong support. He thus has remained in power, and it) the end he will throw  down the tools he used, which tools imagined  they were using Asquith and Company. If I am  right in this, then there is a ray of hope. A fierce  revolution will be avoided, and the world will  laugh at the foreign-led Irish traitors and tools.  If, however, I err in the above forecast, then I  am forced to conclude that Asquith and Company  know that they are doing the work of foreigners,  a work aimed directly against the strength of the  Empire, and if so, then he is a traitor of a political  stripe worthy of the displeasure and condemnation of all right thinking men and nations.  Home Rule, as Canada has it, would be all right.  By this I mean the Home Rule which each Province within the Dominion possesses. This is in  the line of wisdom, but to give Ireland a practical  separation from Great Britain, and at the same  time to allow them the privilege to have FORTY  MEMBERS IN THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT  is a most monstrous proposition, and is a pact of  the aet of treachery being perpetrated by the  Asquith government, if he be truly so intending  to legislate. The loyal Irish will not be forced  out of the Empire. Bloodshed will come first,  and the British soldiery will give the Irish  traitors an awful lesson at the time it is most  needed. Our Empire will not now be broken by  foreigners within or without, and it never will be  broken by any earthly, heavenly or hellish power,  for it is .destined to last forever. The Almighty  has so given Hife word in the Old Bible, and He  who has promised will perform His word to the  letter.  -Prof. Odium M.A.. B.Sc.

Hear 'sir,���������in view of the noted  scienltst and physcologist. Sir Olive  Lodge (and men of his mental calibre)  giving his views, etc., on Immortality  recently to tbe public, I deem it wise  to say a few words, as the subject is  a very important one to all men.  First and chiefly, I desire to point out  the chief reason noted scientific men  have such bazy and indistinct views  on this important subject, is because  tbeytdo not accept tbe only true and  definite source ot information, vis.:  The Sacred Scriptures or Word of  God. Apart from a sincere, reverent  acknowledgement of the Divinity of  the Word of Ood, received Into our  heads and minds as the sole source of  light and knowledge on tbls, and all  things we are immersed in the deepest darkneBs, and can see no way out  of It. "The entrance of thy words  giveth light" we are told and this is  true of individuals and society collectively. Moreover God is the life of  His word and thought and by means  of it is the light of the world mentally and spiritually, even as our  natural sun shineB In the heavens and  imparts light and warmth to all material objects. Now He, as Jesus  Christ, clearly tells us today (as of  old)   "Because  I  live,  ye  shall  live  that of themselves, they have NO life,  j being only vessels to receive the continual inflow every moment (and fraction of a moment) of divine life from  God, Himself. Whether they receive  and use this divine life for good, or  evil, rests witb themselves. In the  case of tbe evil they constantly pervert, and try to suffocate this life in  them by living in wicked practices.  Fourthly. I desire to say (ln my  own experience) by the study of the  divine word, a perception has been  granted me to see from it, that whatever work God does, He is always doing, and that whatever He creates as  coming .from HIM primarily MUST for  tbat reason be ETERNALLY created.  It may not always exist in one outward form, as He first formed it, but  it will continue to exist in some form.  Fifthly. The divine written word  of God is the ONLY meaqp of our being conjoined to Him here, to serve  Him in Eternity. It Is given for the  purpose tbat we may hear lt speak to  us Inwardly, and amend our lives by  trying to practice In daily life its  heavenly instruction. It is the ladder,  Jacob saw ln his dream reaching from  earth to heaven on which the angels  were continually descending and ascending.  8ixthly. Tbe divine word of God  abounds with passages to show tbat  tbis life here on earth is NOT all, as  we are here only a few years at best,  and we depart hence to a "better  country." If In this life I bave hope  only I am of all men most miserable.

Francis Bursill. of Collingwood East, is having the experience  of meeting in Vancouver friends from  the old country whom he has not  seen for a number of years. On Saturday he received a visit from Mr.  William Trant, now the police magistrate of Regina. Forty-two years ago  Mr. Trant was on the staff of a  London paper but he left it for a more  advantageous life and his successor  on the paper was Mr. Bursill who remained there for 20 years. It was  singular that these two old Fleet  Street journalists, after very checquer-  ed careers, should thus meet in this  distant outpost of the Dominion.  Since then Mr. Trant met with a very  serious adventure. He was in Paris  at the time of the Commune and h-'s  dispatches to the London newspapers  led to his being condemned to be sho1:  and he had a very narrow escap?.  Another old friend, Rev. Copeland  Bowie, with whom Mr. Bursill was  connected in Southwalk, *r London,  England, preached at the Unitarian  church on Tenth Avenue on Sunday  evening. Mr. Brusill remembers with  pleasure, that on the last occasion on  which he saw Mr. Bowie they read  together the trial scene from The  Merchant of Venice. Mr. Bowie was  in those days a great power in the  social life of Southwalk, and judging  from his conversations since he has  been in Vancouver, he still retains  much of his old fire and energy.

H. Lewis were present.   The present management   of the municipality  were severely criticised.  Among other  things it was said that to one bank  alone the municipality   were paying  $8,000.00 per month  in interest and  that at the same time they were so  financially tied up that without the  consent of this bank they could not  offer bonds through any other channel.    Mr. Gold said he thought this  could not be binding because it was  against  public  interest,   but  at  the  same time it would be better to abide  by the agreement than to stand the  result of having it set aside.    With  regard to  the  water  supply it was  contended  that the  management  by  which  Ex-Reeve  Pound had wasted  thousands of    dollars    over wooden  pipes,  which     were  no  good,  was  almost eclipsed by the folly of the  present  council     who  were  boring  holes in various parts of the municipality and    assuming    that they had  wells when they had only sunken pits  for collecting surface water.   In fact  the whole record of the council was a  record of a series of blunders leading  to financial disaster.   School Trustee  Morris thought that there was a little  good in crying over the history of the  past.   The municipality was in a mess.  He  thought  that  for  two  years  at  least  they  could  have  no  improvement hut what could be paid for with  revenue.    To     continue  to  borrow  money  at  such  exhorbitant  interest  as was now being paid would be the  height of folly, but he believes that if  the municipality exercised self denial  and went on the road to retrenchment,  public confidence would be restored  and South   Vancouver would be able  to   borrow   oi!   reasonable    terms.  Although no formal, resolution was  put before th'e chair the feeling of the  meeting was evidently hostile to the  council's idea of buying sites for in  dustrial purposes or for launching into the scheme of an expensive municipal electric plant.

(Continued from page 1)  bed at dark if he would see the morning light.  Many woke to find their home in flames and their  families butchered beside them. Others were  dragged forth to be mutilated with the utmost  savagery to see their helpless wives and children  almost  doubled  itself.    Since  those  fingers and limbs hacked off, left  bleeding to death on the cabin floor.  Law had become a mockery where  it had not entirely disappeared, and  crime raged rampant everywhere.  The Association of United Irishmen  was formed in May 1795. The Defenders, one of the worst secret societies of Roman Catholics, soon  joined it, and at once intolerant pressure was brought to bear on the Protestants yet loyal to Britain and anxious to abide by the laws. One  shudders at the fearful tale of bloodshed and brutality, and wonders how  they stood it so long, but finally the  crisis came on Sept 20th at the  Diamond. On that morning a great  throng of Romanists had gathered  from near and far. From the bills of'  Armagh, from far Pomeroy, from the  farms of Tyrone and the cabins of  Connaught they gathered' until an  immense throng surrounded the little  village. What for? It was believed  they had come to destroy every Protestant house in the district. They  began to pull down the home . of  Daniel Winter, when the Protestants  rushed together to defend their property. Thirty-fix of them were well-  drilled Volunteers and the remainder,  six or seven hundred, were armed  with guns, pistols and any other  weapon they could get hold of. A  fierce battle ensued, and against overwhelming numbers the Protestants  were at last victorious. A truce was  arranged, and in good faith the Protestants went home, to find that their  enemy had next morning returned to  wipe out the village. Then followed  the real struggle, when men fought ���������  veritable battle in defense of their  homes and their families and at  length the Protestants remained in  possession of the field. But they had  learned a lesson they could not forget In the words of their great  countryman, Edmund Burke, they  had learned that "when bad men combine the good must associate, else  they will fall one by one, an unpitied  sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."  They were driven by sheer and brutal  necessity to band together in defence  of their altars and homes, and in the  house of James Sloan of Loughgall,  weapon in one hand, Bible in the  other, these simple men laid th*;  foundations of that Institution which  for over a century has stood like a  rock in defense of liberty and faith,  and saved Ireland from political,  social and religious disaster. They  thought to call it the "Diamond Association," but as they wisely rooted  its Constitution upon the Word of  God, and so made it valid for ages to  come, so they decided not to localize  it by such a name or seek to commemorate any private feud or sectional hatred. William of Orange had delivered England from the curse of the  Papacy; he had secured the liberties  of Protestant Ireland when he personally drove James from the Boyne and  all hope of the throne, so they named  their society the "Loyal Orange Association," the main purpose and principle of which was "to protect all  loyal subjects of every religious persuasion from violence and oppression"  and which was destined to take no  ignoble part in the progress and prosperity of their country.  Gentlemen, I cannot spend more  time in tracing the history of an Institution which now girdles the globe  and has built this building in which  we gather to-night, but I will simply  say this: In the blackest hour of  Ireland's need Orangeism came forth  providently to gather together the  scattered    fragments    of    Protestant  and crime.  When the storm cloud burst in 1798,  and the fires of rebellion blazed upon  every hill, ' when Southern Ireland  was slaughtering helpless Protestants,  burning men, women and children  wholesale, and enacting horrors unspeakable, the Orangemen preserved  the loyalty of the North. They  earned the highest praise of Genera!  Knox under whom they fought for  altars and homes. When Emmet's rebellion broke but in 1803 the Parliament declared the Orangemen the  Saviours of their country, and when  O'Connell had roused the nation by  his demand for Repeal of the Union  and sent Lawless with 144,000 men to  pillage Ulster, 5,000 of them met him  at Ballybay and quietly but resolutely  turned them back. They made repeal  an impossibility. Several times Parliamentary committees have investigated  the institution from top to bottom,  because of the slanders of its enemies,  yet have been forced to admit they  could not find a flaw in its entire  constitution and character,  I know that scarcely a year has  passed in its history which has not  provided detractors and slanderers  of the Order, and even to-day the  cheap taunts . of "Orange bigotry"  and "Orange intolerance" are common on the lips "of those who make  no effort to understand either principle or purpose of the Association.  Mr. Chairman, I have said I am no  politician. I give no blind allegance  to any party. I hold myself free to  think and act as I please on all social  and National questions, and I find  nothing whatever from top to bottom  of Oraggeism to prevent me as a  broadminded Protestant from doing  so. Having gone to the very top of  the organization I am free to say that  in my opinion, none but a genuine  Christian gentleman can live up to  the principles and carry out the purpose of the Orange Institution.  Now, sir, it may be thought that  all this is an unnecessary degression  from our real subject, but not so. In  pointing out the terrible condition ct  Irish Society over a century since,  which drove the Ulstermen to found  such an Association in defense of life,  liberty and faith, I have gone far to  upset one great argument of those  who, appeal for an Irish Parliament  in Dublin. That fearful epoch of  blood and murder, that ghastly series  of crimes that stained the record of  Ireland with horror unspeakable, lit  the fires of hatred and ruin from  North to South, and led to the butcheries of 1798���������all these were permitted and perpetrated under the very  last Parliament that sat on Stephen's  Green in the City of Dublin. It was  while the oratory of Grattan and Curran and Flood was sounding through  the Parliament House in Dublin, that  crime and insurrection were rampant  all over the land and plunderings and  corruption in office���������in fact every  sign of an incompetent government  became so overwhelming as to shatter  all confidence. It suits Mr. Redmond  and his followers to talk a lot of  nonsense about the prosperity or  Ireland under Grattan's Parlment.  But the fact is that the National debt  was increased 10 times during the  last rune years of its existence and a  Govt Commission reported! at the  time of the Union, that over two  millions of people were dependent on  only 20 weeks work for sustenance.  The country was a vast pauper warren. The overwhelming majority of  the Irish people were in favor of the  Union and the Roman Catholics,  whose views were voiced by their  Bishops gave it an almost undivided  loyalty and  keep them true to their  support.   Their clergy took an active  King and their God, while the dazzl  ing   dreams     of     republicanism   and  French infidelity permeated the land  part in its favor. As soon as the  Union was established, Ireland's  credit rose, industries sprang up and  days the only movements which have  seriously disturbed the peace, of Ireland and interfered with her prosperity have been the conspiracies and  political intigues of the Nationalist  agitators, such as Emmet's rebellion  of 1803, Parnell's Land League and  its criminal successors, the National  and United Irish Leagues.' When  Gladstone said of the Land League  that "crime dogged the footsteps of  the League," he was also describinp  the career of it's successors for many  years. And the day is not yet past  when their leaders would "march  through rapine and crime to the  desintegration and dismemberment  of the Empire."  But let us at once get to the heart  of the subject What do we mean by  Home Rule? What is the object :it  which the Nationalist party has been  aiming in their long and persistent  agitation? John Redmond professes  loudly that all they want is "The con'  tinuoua government of Ireland according to Irish disss, carried out  by Irish ministers responsible to the  Irish people"���������in other words of his.  "the government of Irish affairs by  an Irish Parliament at Dublin and ac  cording to Irish ideas." "Quite simple  and perfectly just and right,'' manv  will say. But I hope to show before I  sit down that the real demand of the  Nationalist leader is neither so simple nor ��������� perfectly just as one might  fancy from the definition he pleases  to give us today. Gentlemen, the  Protestant people of Ireland are not  furious, partisan bigots���������blind to all  principles of reason and justice���������the  Orangemen are but a small proportion of them���������they amount to a million and a quarter of intelligent and  progressive people; they are to be  j found in every county in Ireland:  [they represent all the Protestant  churches���������all classes���������all shades of  political opinion, and the real business brains and ability of Ireland today. Yet they are almost entirely  united in a solid and determined opposition to Home Rule in any shape  or form, while thousands of their  Roman Catholic countrymen agree  with them, if they dared speak out on  the question. Now, why is ..this?  Surely they have some light on the  subject���������the whole brilliance of truth  is not oft the other side only, as one  might imagine in reading the partisan  press and some of the literature  flooding the Empire or listening to  the fervid appeals of the Home Rule  orators.  Indeed, for my part, I never read  any of their speeches, but I think of  the Old Darkey who, on a long journey, in a strange district, encountered  a heavy thunder storm and became  hopelesly lost as night came on.  Again and again he tried to find his  way, but at last he gave up in despair  and, climbing down from his mule, he  fell on his knees, lifted his hands toward Heaven and cried: "O, Lord,  if its all de same to you, I'd like to  have a little less noise and a litle more  light!" So it seems to me that when  the oratorical fireworks break forth  on the Nationalist platform, and the  woes of Ireland and tyranny of England are trumpeted abroad for political purposes, it would be very much  beter if we had a little less noise and  a little more light on the real situation in Ireland today.  Now, Sir, I shall endeavor, without  passion or prejudice, to place before  you as briefly as possible a few of the  strongest reasons why the Protestant  people of Ireland are so strongly opposed to Home Rule.  In the first place they maintain  that Ireland does not need Home  Rule, and that the best interests of  be served hy the preservation of the  Union as at present.  It is an outstanding fact of history  that England wronged Ireland ser-j  iously in the past, and the Penal Laws]  of the 18th Century helped to beggar]  her people and shatter her industrials  life; but we must not forget that!  these laws bore as hardly upon Pres-1  byterians and all non-conformists as  on Roman Catholics; yet Presbyterians and other Protestants are today  the very head and front of the opposition to Home Rule. And ever since  the Union and Catholic emancipation  in 1829, the policy of England has  been to uplift and prosper the ccause  of Ireland and her people. Especially  during the last twenty years has the  British ��������� Parliament carried out legislation resulting in immense increase to  the prosperity and well being of  every section of Irish life. The old and  vexing problem of the Irish Land has  been definitely setled by successive  remedial laws until today, one-half  of the tenant-farmers of Ireland own  their land in fee simple, owing to the  provisions of the Wyndham Act.  passed by the Unionist Government  in 1903. By this act of the British  Parliament, the Government pledged  its credit to the amount of five hundred to one thousand millions of dollars and gave a bonus of sixty millions  to enable the farmers to buy out their  farms.  , So, too, the Congested Districts  Board, with an annual grant of two  and a half millions a year, for the purchase and re-settlement of land and  thorough equipment of it with buildings, fences and drains; the Light  Railways System, opening up large  areas of remote agricultural country,  with a clear grant of ten millions the  Technical Instruction Department,  with a grant of nearly a million a  year���������these and other great and generous reforms by the Imperial Government, during the last few; years,  have   transformed  the   whole   situa-  No  Delivery  Phone.

Those are the actual words of the  Irish Nationalist leader who, on other  occasions can hurl all the fire and  force of his condemnation' against  England for her dastardly conduct  towards Ireland and her ruin of Ireland's prosperity and people. I quote  them at some length because they  truly describe what the Imperial Government has been doing for Ireland,  and give us one of the reasons why  Protestants deny that Home Rule in  any form is necessary for the, well-  being of Ireland. In the emphatic  words of the London "Spectator" the  Parliament of the United Kingdom  has shown that it can do absolute justice to Ireland. The credit of the  whole of the United Kingdom has  been freely used to help the farmers  of Ireland. Such help has been ex-  tion and prove absolutely that Eng- j tended to ho other part of the United  land is not only willing but absolutely j Kingdom". But you may ask, "Why  competent to pass whatever measures I should not the Irish people have full  are necessary for the material pros-j control of their local affairs just as  perity of Ireland. So extensive has England has? An English Parlia-  been the improvement and progress' ment cannot understand or do justice  and threatened to make it a mass of in less than 40 years the population  every section of her people can only  during the last ten years that Capt.  Condon, the renowned Fenian of the  past generation, when he re-visited  Ireland in 1909, spoke at Kilkinny in  glowing terms of "the farmers lifted  from the condition of slaves and serfs  to be the owners of the property," the  laborers put in possession of neat and  comfortable cottages which they had  never enjoyed before," "the vast  improvements that had been effected  all over the country," "even the in*  crease of population unknown for  fifty years before, and thousands of  evicted tenants restored to their  homes." So Dr. Timmins, the  American Home Ruler, the following  year, stated in Cork, "I feel safe in  declaring that, considering the depths  from which Ireland has arisen since  the Land League was established, no  other country on earth has equalled  her in the betterment of conditions.  I have been in every province in Ireland, and I have talked with no one  on the subject who was not free to  admit that there was no comparison  betwen the present state of the country and that of thirty years ago." But  John Redmond, himself, at Detroit, in!  October, 1910, gloried in the tremen-j  dous improvements of the previous j  ten; years. "Over one-half of Ireland j  the tillers of the soil, are absolute'.  owners. A few short years and the [  land question will have absolutely *  passed away. And with the passing  of that system will have passed the  chief cause which kept the Irish people, not only poverty-stricken, but enslaved. . Within the last six  years we have obtained thirty million dollars from the British Exchequer to erect decent sanitary habitations for the laborers of Ireland.  Three thousand evicted families have,  within the last few years, been not  merely restored to their homes, but  their leases have been rcssuitcceni m  their houses have been rebuilt for  them by money obtained, not as a  loan, but as a free grant from the  British Exchequer. Their farms have  been restored, they have been given  new farm implements, and they have  gone back to the land from which they  were evicted twenty years ago���������-not  as tenants���������but as absolute owners  of the soil. . . Today the school-  houses are decent, sanitary buildings,  heated and cleaned by money which  we obtained for that purpose from the  British Exchequer. The teachers have !  had their positions enormously improved. The secondary schools" (or  high schools) are today well supported. Large monetary assistance is  being given to them. And greatest  blessing, perhaps, of all, for the first  time for centuries, tbe blessings of  facilities for higher education have  been extended to the masses of the  Irish people. . . There was created  in Ireland for the benefit of the great  to the details of Irish affairs, as a  local Parliament could." Such a ques:  tion would, of course, delight the  heart of an Irish Nationalist, as it is  on the assumption that Irishmen  have no control of their own affairs  he bases his attack on the Union;  But let me emphatically assure you  that Irishmen have today exactly the  same control of their local affairs  that either the Englishman or Scotch-  manhas, and they have it as the free  gift of the Unionist Government they  have eternally denounced- In  1897  T  the Local Government Act for Ireland, by which the County and District Councils of Ireland control the  levying and spending of the rates of  the county absolutely, and all local  business is completely in their hands,  while this is so as regards Irish affairs, the additional fact must be  noted, that Ireland has a representation in Imperial Parliament, far, beyond what her population entitles her  to, and in virtue of this over-representation the Irish Nationalists are  able to dictate the policy of the British Government and to throw out of  gear the finances of the nation and  empire. So the actual fact is that  instead of Ireland being the injured  party in the affairs of the United  Kingdom, it is Englishmen and  Scotchmen who have the right to  complain of lack of control in their  own business details.  But there may yet remain' in some  minds the old erroneous impression  that the Protestants of Ireland bold  the ascendancy in political and religious affairs over the Catholic people.  We so often hear the old false cry of  "Orange bigotry," and "religious intolerance on the part of Ulster," that  many seem to imagine the Protestants  object to Home Rule because they  will be deprived of power and privilege. But there is not and has not  been for many a year any ascendancy  of any kind on the part of the Protestants save that of business brains  and ability and enterprise. In fact  the ascendancy is really o-a the other  side.

The first law  offices* of the Crown in Ireland from  the Lord Chancellor and Lord Chief  Justice down, are, five of them Roman  Catholics and only one, the Master  of the Rolls, third in rank, is a Protestant.  We hear all oyer, the Empire much  about the intolerance of Belfast toward Catholics, and even Mr. Birerll,  not long since publicly accused the  Belfast Corporation of Only employing a single Roman Catholic. But  what are the facts?.. The Catholics  of Belfast are about one-fourth of  the population and this fourth pay  about one-twentieth of the rates of  the city��������� Yet the corporation is  scrupulously careful to give Roman  Catholic workmen a good share of  employment. In fact 900 Catholics  are employed by the Council or nearly  one-third of the total, and these 900  receive in wages 48,000 pounds a  year or just three times as much as  all the Catholics of Belfast pay in  taxes. If that is intolerance or ascendancy then I want to know what  you call the proceedings in Cork City  and County? In Cork County there  are ninety-four officials, and only  nine Protestants, who were appointed  by the old grand jury system, before  the Local Government Act of 1898.  In Cork. City, where. Protestants pay  at least half the rates, only two officials out of thirty-three are Protestants. Both were appointed before  1898. Since then not one Protestant  has ever been appointed by the Coun-  ; ciL- In Belfast, when the Local.Government Act came into force ,tb.e  m Corpo-ration specially,v altered the  boundaries of two warcls to give the  Catholics special control of them.  Since then two' Catholic aldermen  and six councillors have remained in  the corporation, and four years ago a  Catholic alderman was chosen High  Sheriff of the city with the universal  assent of the Protestants. Compare  this with Dublin, where, though the  / Protestants pay more than one-half  the rates���������rates that are double what  they are in Belfast���������no Unionist has  a chance of employment by the city  These are but a very few instances of  a multitude of similar facts that prove  conclusively there is absolutely no  such thing as a Protestant ascendancy  anywhere in Ireland today, and that  the Ulstermen seek no such thing for  themselves but simply desire equal  rights and opportunities for all; their  Roman Catholic countrymen as well  as themselves.  2. Again, Protestant Ireland opposes Home Rule because of the incalculable injury it will certainly do to the  business interests, the trade and prosperity of the country.:. It is not my  intention to go into any detail upon  this point, as it would require much  more time than I have left, and I have  already dealt with it on a previous occasion. But "there never has been  a time when Home Rule seemed imminent that the leading business men  and business interests of Ireland  have not emphatically protested  against it. They did it with Gladstone in 1886 and '93, and they did it  lately when one thousand merchants  and manufacturers presented Sir  Edward Carson with an address at  Craigavon, pleading their support  against "a burden which would cripple, retard and eventually destroy  that prosperity of which we are justly  proud."  Here is a personal letter I received  from one of the leading business men  of Belfast���������a former Lord Mayor���������  Sir James Henderson... I shall read  just a few sentences upon this point.  "I object to Home Rule, first of all  as an Irishman, because I believe it  would prove disasrous to the best interests of ������iy native country���������not only  to the interests of Ulster and of the  Loyalists, who have done so much  to build up the prosperity of that  province, but also to the interests of  the other parts of Ireland, and of the  Nationalists themselves. The very  shadow of Home Rule is sufficient to  interfere with the trade of the country, and its realization would disorganize business entirely, because it  would destroy that confidence without which commerce and industry  cannot flourish. Those who have capital to invest could not be expected  to have much faith in the men who  under the new conditions, would control the destinies of Ireland, and the  state of turmoil and unrest into which  the country would be plunged would  not be conducive to the extension of  her trade or the development of her  resources. Home Rule would also increase the religious dissensions from  which Ireland has suffered too much  in the past, and instead of promoting  amity and concord, would intensify  the bitterness between the -different  sections of the community."  But you may ask: "Is that not a  prejudiced opinion, the fear of a cap-  talist who dreads losing the control  he hss.over industry for his own profit?" Well, take another class, and  go to the South this time. Listen to  these words from the farmers of Wexford, where both Redmonds have  made their fiercest speeches, Listen!  Here is one letter which appeared not  long ago in the Dublin paper "The  Irish Times," addressed to the Editor:  Sir,���������About a week,ago I addressed  a letter to one of our Dublin Nationalist papers on the, to me, all important, question of the position of the  farmers of Ireland under a Home  Rule Government, but publication  was refused. All I wanted to know  was this: In the event of the Home  Rule bill becoming law . . would  the position of farmers who have  purchased their holdings under the  Land Purchase Acts be any better  or any worse? ... Can our representatives give us any guarantee  that we, the farmers of Ireland, "the  backbone of the country," as we are  so often called, will be gainers or  losers, will be required to pay as  much in the shape of poor rates and  other charges as we pay now, or more,  or less? ���������*. . . May we hope that  the prices of the cattle, sheep, butter,  pigs, etc., will i not at least be any  lower than at present. A very intelligent neighbor of mine, and no  pessimist either, tells me that instead  of the fine times we have been promised under Home Rule, he greatly  fears we will all be called upon to  dip deeper into our purse, as he expects no lightening of the taxation  burden, but the reverse. If our M.  P.'s, who ought to know, think so, let  them speak out. We have been paying them long enough and generally  enough, and the least we expect is  guidance fron-_ those who ought to  know. uWe are asked to buy a pig  in a poke."  Other farmers at once took up the  same position, and one wrote, saying: "In my district the general  opinion of the farmers is that Home  Rule will not be the great blessing  we thought it would. That is the  feeling of life-long Nationalists.  Some time ago I asked the member  for our division these questions, ahd  the answer I got was: Don't be  silly, Paddy, don't be silly. Wait and  see," and I know hundreds of farmers who are anxious to know, but  ashamed to ask, fearing they would  be thought silly or ignorant. N  Next day this letter appeared inthe  same paper from another farmer of  County Kildare: /  "From Irish Times, 21st April, 1911:  "A CHALLENGE.  "Sir,���������Though I am afraid it will  be a case of Hobson's' choice when  Home Rule comes, for there will be  nothing but the land to tax, I too, as  a farmer and an interested party,  would very much like an authoritative  pronouncement on the subject, and, to  encourage the gentlemen to make one,  I am willing to lodge 100 pounds in  your hands to be paid over to any  official member of the Nationalist  Parliamentary Party who can satisfy  a public meeting of .representative  Irish farmers, to be held in Dublin,  that they will benefit by Home Rule.  Yours, UBIQUE.  County Kildare, April 20th, 1911.  A few days later- the first writer  asked: "If the Irish M. P.'s think  that Home Rule will be the blessing  they say it will, why do they not come  forward, prove it, and claim that 100  pounds? If that challenge remains  unanswered the result should be published far and near. Any ordinary  spectator of the political game may  note the caution with which the paid  agitators regard practical suggestions  now-a-days. I fear the farmers of  Ireland will wake up some fine morning to find to their sorrow that the  promised paradise of Ireland free was  but the baseless fabric of a dream.  Ireland was never in a better way to  become a happy, prosperous, contented nation... Would it not be a terrible  pity, then, to disturb the progress  and peace of the nation at large?"  Gentlemen, I shall not dwell further  upon thispoint, but I submit that no  greater injustice could be done to Ireland than that at a time when her  prosperity is increasing by leaps and  bounds, she should be deprived of the  moral ana material credit which she  derives from absolute unity with the  richest country in the world, and to  throw- the reins of her future to the  guidance of men who. however well  intentioned, have never been trained  to the administration of public affairs-  Were Great Britain to sanction a  step so insane, bankruptcy would certainly ensue, and there would be an  extensive exodus of those who have  done most to build up the commercial strength of the country. You may  say I am a false prophet carried away  by sheer prejudice, but if so, then the  best business brains in Ireland today  unanimously assert the same.  3. And now, sir, I come to the question of the ultimate aim of the whole  movement, from first to last, and I  say that the Loyalists of Ireland oppose  Home Rule because it finally  means nothing }ess that desruption of  the Union and separation from Britain. I am perfectly well aware that Mr.  John Redmond and his leading followers have made frequent speeches  acid:.statements in Canada and Great  Britain to the effect that all they wish  is control of purely Irish affairs, and  that once Home Rule is established  Ireland will be the most loyal and  contented portion of the British Empire... But Irish Protestants remember the persistent attitude of those  same gentlemen all down the past,  and the fact that even today the moderate speeches made by them to British audiences (where any suggestion  of disloyalty would ruin their cause),  are absolutely contradicted when facing Nationalist throngs in Ireland}, or  the extremists of America, who supply  the funds for the downfall of English  government in Ireland.    The fact is  that the Nationalist leaders suit their  speeches and   their   appeals to the  temperament and   feelings   of   their  audiences, and talk loyalty or disloyalty as best suits the occasion, but  from first to last, throuj-h all shades  and changes of active policy their war  cry has been "Ireland a Nation," and  their object the absolute independence of Ireland from British control.  I do not ask you to accept that statement on my mere assertion, but I  shall allow the leaders of the Home  Rule party to speak for themselves  as to whether they consider a local  Parliament  under  Imperial   supremacy a final settlement of the controversy.   Years ago Charles Stuart Par-  nell set the fashion for every Irish  Nationalist   orator    since, when    at  Cincinnati he said:   "When' we ibave  undermined   English   misgoyernment  we have paved the way for Ireland  to take her place among the nations  of the earth.    And let us not forget  that that is the ultimate goal at which  all we Irishmen aim... None of us,  whether we are in America or in Ireland, or wherever we may be, will be  satisfied until we have destroyed the  last link which keeps Ireland bound  to England."   Again, at Castlebar, jn  Ireland, "Speaking for myself, and I  believe for the Irish people, and for  all my colleagues, I have to declare  that we will never accept, either expressly or implied, anything but the  full and complete right to arrange our  own affairs, and to make our land a  nation; to secure for her free from  outside control, the right to direct our  own cause among the people of the  world."   And later    still    at Dublin.  Parhell declared "I will accept    the  Home Rule compromise of Gladstone  as an installment of our rights, but I  refuse to say that it is a final settlement of the national question, and I  declare that no man shall set a boundary to the onward march of a nation."  But you say Parnell is dead and gon**  and his policy of hate and independence  is  buried with    him.      Is    it?  Those   very  words   of   his   which   i  have quoted last were reaffirmed and  adopted as his motto a few years ago  at Newry by Mr. John Redmond, the  present leader of the party.   "I refuse  to say that Home Rule is a final settlement of the question, and I declare  that no man shall set a boundary on  the onward march  of    the    nation."  Again,    at Kanturk,    in    November,  1895, Mr. Redmond exclaimed:   "Ireland for the Irish is our motto, and the  consummation of all our hopes and  aspirations is, in one word, to drive  English rule, sooner or later, bag and  baggage,   from  -our   country."     But  come down to later days, and we find  this  same  gentleman  who  professes  such   loyalty   to   England,   standing  before  some thousands of his  countrymen at New Rosa county, Wexford, on June 23, 1907, to say:    "We  today    from   this   county    Wexford,  send this message to England.    We  tell her that we Wexfordmen today  hate her rule just as bitterly as our  forefathers did when they shed their  blood on this spot.   We tell her thai  we are as much rebels to her rule today as our forefathers were in *98."  Later still in Syracuse, November 9th.  1910, referring to those who objected  to mere Parliamentary agitation and  acceptance of Home Rule under Imperial supremacy, he replied:    "They  ask us to demand more, and I answer  in the words of Parnell:   "Let us get  this   first   and  then   demand    more."  We do not set a limit on the march of  a nation.".. No longer ago than 1911,  at Aughrim in Ireland, Mr. Reamond  used these words: "The ideals of the  Gaelic League are our ideals and we  will struggle fcr them in the future.  However, you will soon find these  ideals will be realized when Ireland  will-be self-governing, and will not  be self-governing as a province of a  foreign nation, but in the sense of a  fully self-governed and self-reliant nation, dependent on the genius and  talent of our people, a country able  to work out her owu destiny."  Now, what are the ideals of the  Gaelic League in Ireland? I cannot  define them better than in the words  of Mr. Shane Leslie, Nationalist can*  didate for Londonderry at last elections, when he spoke last year at  New York. These are his words:  "Let there be no disguise of what we  are after in Ireland. Let there be no  second thought upon my words; let  there be stated the truth, nakedly and  unashamed, that we who have taken  upon ourselves to save a dying language and to restore every custom  and every language that we can rake  out of the past, that we, deliberately  and knowingly, have set ourselves���������  if I may use a great phase���������to break  the last link that lies between Ireland  and England." Dr. Douglas Hyde;  the president of this League, and two  other prominent members who were  present some time ago at aTeacher's  congress in Sligo showed their disloyalty by ostentatiously walking out  of the room when the King's health  was proposed, and Seumas Mac-  Manus, the author, a prominent  Leaguer, and former school teacher,  wrote that: "The Irish youth who  quits school without realizing his duties as a rebel is a discredit to his  schoolmaster." Yet these are the  ideals which Mr. Redmond publicly  endorses as his ideals while professing loyalty to the Union and Britain.  Of course it is perfectly in order  for any man to change his views as  conscience dictates, and if Mr. Redmond and Mr. T. P. O'Connor have  suddenly become worshippers of  Britain and the Empire, we are glad  to hear it. But what of their followers? When it was rumored that Mr.  Redmond had lowered the National  flag Mr. John Dillon was quick to  resent indignantly any such notion,  sayjng: "The only reply that is  called for is to point to the full reports of Mr. Redmond's speeches in  Buffalo and New York, where the  only ideal set forth was to reach the  great goal of National Independence."  Not only did prominent Irish Nationalists assail Mr. Redmond in the  Freeman's Jorunal of Dublin for his  professions of loyalty, but the Nationalist organ "Irish Freedom" poured its wrath upon him. Listen to this  from its editorial page: "Mr. Redmond has either entered into a conspiracy with the English cabinet to  deceive the English people or else he  bas> entered into a conspiracy with  them tp deceive the Irish people. The  Irish people have been told that Home  Rule, or whatever it is that Mr. Redmond is asking for, means Nationalism, the English people are being told  that it is the antithesis of Nationalism." "Nationalism in Ireland has  been the bond and the only bond that  has held the Irish people together  during the 740 years' struggle with  England" . . . and "Nationalism  means separation or it means nothing." - Why only six days previous to  Mr. Redmond's ..indignant ..epudia-  tion of separate plans on the part of  his former leader Parnell or on his  own part today���������the City of Water-  ford, that sends him to Parliament,  held a public meeting to publicly protest against welcoming King George  and Queen Mary to Ireland. One of  the City Aldermen took the chair,  and, in words purposely repudiating  the sovereignity of the King over  Ireland, said: "We cannot honestly  or truthfully present an address to  any English King." This was perfectly in line with the speech of Dub-  lin's Lord Mayor, who said on the  same question from his official chair:  i "No matter what Mr. Redmond might  say about loyalty, he for one would  never welcome the King to Ireland."  Not only John Redmond but every  one of his followers of any account���������  Dillon, O'Connor, O'Brien, Devlin  ���������and all the rest, have repeatedly as-  ! serted that nothing short of national  independence will satisfy them, and  that any measure of Home Rule will  only be accepted as an instrument  with which to gain that object. And  I say that if you refuse to accept these  as true statements of their purpose  and feeling you pay these gentlemen  tb.e very poor compliment of charging them with gross lying and wilful  deception, of the very supporters  who have kept the party purse supplied with dollars on their behalf.  I have not time to expose ihe work  of the official organization of the  Home Rule party���������the United Irish  League���������which is simply Parnell's  Land League under another name.  Por the last thirteen years this  League has kept Ireland in a turmoil  of intimidation and crime, boycotting  and brutality; it has chosen candidates for Parliament and Local Government Councils; it has been, in the  words of Mr. Redmond, "The real  government of Ireland." Its avowed  policy is the downfall of British rule  in Ireland, and it has been described  by the foremost judges on the Irish  bench, themselves Roman Catholics,  as "A conspiracy for the destruction  of property, intimidation of persons,  and the overthrow of the government  of the land." The secretary of the  League today is the man whom John  Redmond publicly styled, "The real  Chief Secretary of Ireland, my colleague and friend, Joseph Devlin."  Who is Mr. Devlin? He is the member of Parliament for. the Catholic  section of Belfast, and the president  of the Ancient Order of Hibernians,  or.the "Molly Maguires." He has  lately succeeded in bringing the  United Irish League under the absolute control of the Hibernians, which  in his own words at Dublin in 1910,  "Owes no allegiance except to Ireland and the Irish people," but is  thoroughly disloyal and opposed to  England; None but Roman Catholics  are allowed, in its membership, and  no less* an authority than William  O'Brien, member for "Rebel Cork,"  lately declared that its object ia  "The extermination of the Protestant  community in Ireland.".. And he  adds: "The domination of such a  society would make this country *v  hell. It would light the flames of  civil war- in our midst and blight  every hope of our future prosperity."  Those are not my words���������they are  the published statement of Mr. William O'Brien, one of the leading  spirits of the Nationalist party fbr  nearly forty years, and father of the  United Irish League. In the light of  such a statement from such a source  we need scarcely be surprised to Mr.  Devlin proclaim lately that "Fenian-  ism was a baptism of -, Nationality  from which men came forth cleansed  of the dross of selfishness and slavery  and made heirs to the Kingdom of  truth and liberty." You men may  know what Fenianism attempted to  do in Canada, but you may not know  that it drenched Ireland with blood  and murder, terrorized; England with  dynamite and " sought to realize  Patrick Ford's gospel of cirme when  he said "If there is any dynamite or  lyddite that will blow the British  Empire into the clouds or down into  the bottomless pit, let it be used and  forthwith. We believe all that so������-t  of thing, and we feel sure that the  men at the head of the United Irish  League are not contrary minded."  That was the policy of the man who  poured his tens of thousands of dollars into Redmond's and Parnell'3  war-chest, and that is the policv  which Mr. Jos. Devlin says made the  red-handed criminals of Fenianism  "heirs to the Kingdom of truth and  liberty." And remember this, Mr.  Devlin is the only serious rival of Mr.  Redmond for the premiership in a  Home Rule Parliament. But what is  the difference? Mr. Redmond himself just five years ago this month  said publicly in Dublin, "If there are  any men more extreme than we are,  my prayer for them is, success to  all their ideals and their hopes."

On Monday evening laat in this  church the Epworth League held its  monthly citizenship .meeting, under  the chairmanship of Mlas Smith. Mr.  Roy Long, a young barrister in the  city,, waa the Speaker aad his subject  was entitled "Civic Righteousness."  Mr. Long fli-ft traced the growth of  cities from the communal and walled  age down to ita present dimensions.  He spoke ot the pride we ought to  have ln the fine safeguards and public  utilities that are at the call of ovary  citizen. Especially did he call attention to the splendid service rendered  by the police force of tbla city, and  the fire department also evoked his  warmest commendation. With the  inner knowledge of the lawyer, ho  spoke of the difficulties the police had  to contend with, and of their general  unimpeachability In the face of trying  circumstances. Mr. Long aald that  the detective staff of Vancouver was  one of the most efficient on the continent and their system of identification  would be a matter of pride to a much  older community. The whole force  and power behind was at the service  of every citizen, no matter what hla  wealth might be. He paid a tribute to  the aldermen, stating that they wore  as fine a legislature as any city could  possess, but it was the duty bf aU  good citizens and of the churches In  particular to uphold the hands of tho  council'In their desire to promote a  good moral tone In the city, and to let  them feel that In all their aims for the  public welfare they had behind them  a large concourse of people who approved of their efforts. Mr. Long said  that it was a shame that a young dty  like Vancouver���������without any alum  problem to contend with���������should have  such an evil existing In its midst aa  the liquor traffic. He said the greateat  source o/ revenue which this eity had  was in the liquor licenses, and the* lines  that resulted directly therefrom, hot  he found encouragement In the reeebt  attitude of the licensing body to hope  that it would not always be so.   .   .  The meeting waa thrown open for  discussion and, the Rev. Mr. Lett  ���������raised t^e matter of the Indifference  paid to the new Sunday closing bylaw.  Mr. Long was able to throw more light  on the question and made an astonishing revelation. Tbe president of the  society, on behalf of tbe meeting,  tendered the thanks of the meeting to  Mr. Long for bis address and suggested a resolution be framed and sent  to the mayor. This was proposed by  Mr. Cox and seconded by Mr. Mark-  land, and a copy is appended hereto:  "That this society of young people  tenders to HIb Worship the Mayor Its  appreciation of the stand be took in  opposing the renewal and extension of  the liquor licenses in this city, and  assures him that every Much action  will receive tbe sympathf and  mendation of the society. Every ed  of the) council for tbe suppression and  better supervision of vice will meet  with its approbation and endorsement  Especially does tbis society regret the  open violation of the bylaw relating  to tbe closing of stores on Sundays  and the apparent Inactivity of the authorities in coping witb the frank indifference.    >  Epworth League, Grandview  Mtethodlst Church  (Sgd.)

I turned in surprise, and saw  Claire standing quietly in tho door-  |way.  "Pardon me, gentlemen," She said  softly, ."but perhaps I can explain  much of this mystery, and establish  .the identity of Major Lawrence."  ��������� Seldon sprang forward snd offered;  her a chair, but she merely thanked.  him with a bow, and remained standing, her eyes upon her father. Not  once had she even glanced toward either Grant or me, but I noticed tho  deep flush of color on cheek evidencing her excitement. What was she  going to explain T How account for  the strange actions of the past few  days? How came she to be here at  all? Would she confess the truth  openly before us all, or would she feel  justified In concealment? I could not,  did not, doubt the honesty of the girl's  intent, and yet: was it possible for her  [to compel these men to accept her version of all which had occurred ...Would  jsho venture a falsehood to protect me,  [or to save herself?" .  I "1���������I have already explained much,"  I hastened to say, thinking sho might  wish to know.  "I overheard what has already been,  d." she returned quickly, but with-  it looking toward me, "and appreciate tho oare with which my name has  far been guarded.

"I think," hesitating slightly, "he  knew he was not unwelcome."  "And," his voice breaking slightly,  "he came here also to meet you?"  ; "Certainly not," her head lifting In*  jdignantly.

If he risked his  jltfe to meet with me in Philadelphia  it was done openly and honorably ln  ithe midst1 of acquaintances. There  'has been nothing bidden or clandestine.

"Tbat is partially true; you endeavored to provoke a quarrel tbe moment  you met I bad no desire be should  fall into your bands as a prisoner.  When you appeared at this bouse I  assisted bis escape."  "But, Claire, bow came you here?  Why did you leave Philadelphia?"  "Because I have a brother, sir, whom  I can only meet in secret" she replied  quietly. "I came without thought of  danger, for war bas not cost us friends  in this country;, our home has remained until now untouched by vandals, and I felt amply protected by  those who accompanied me upon the  ride���������our old Bouse servants." She  knelt at tbe side of bis chair, her  head bowed upon his arm, and bis  hand stroked ber bah*. "1 regret if I  have seemed unmaidenly, or done  wbat you may deem wrong, father, for  It has all seemed right to me."  Tbe colonel looked st us silently for  what seemed a long while, his fingers  fondling tbe tresses of tbe girl's hair.  "Thia aituation leaves toe iu an embarrassing predicament" he admitted  at last slowly. "I hardly know what ls  my duty either as a father, or an offlcer of tbe king. No matter what his  purpose may have been this man pen*  etrated our lines ln disguise; he admittedly exercised'eommsnd of those  irregulars who attacked and routed  Delavan's column, and has since been  prowling about disguised as a countryman. Merely because my daughter  confesses to a friendship between  them can hardly justify me ln setting  him at liberty."  He paused, rising to bis feet, his eyes  on my face. The girl lifted ber head,  looking up at him.  "Major Lawrence, I shall hold you  prisoner of war, referring your case  to fllr Henry Clinton. In the mean*  while yoo shall receive every consid*  j .-ration possible ln accordance with  yoar rank. I am now going .join my  |msn In pursuit of Fagin.

"I shall expect you to bo ready to  ride with us on our return to Philadelphia, Claire," he said kindly. "It ls  evidently not safe fbr you to rsmain  here alone."  ���������   Tory well, father."  "Come, Grant we shall have to rUe  {hard to overtake our men."  The captain started roluotantly,  oeowttng st me as he pawed.  "I shook! enjoy having tho privilege  of being loft tn charge bare." ho said,  for my benefit  "No 6o-_bt, sir," returned Mortimer  coldly, "art X have already sslested  Mr. SeLDoft Jos thst duty."  They left the houie together, and I  watched them ride past the window,  followed by a dozen soldiers. As tbey  disappeared Seldon turned his eyes  to my face. He was rather a pleasant  looking young man, but possessed an  aggressive chin.  "While I nave no orders to that effect, major," be said quietly,'! would  take  tbe  responsibility of accepting  your parole."  "Are you not rather reckless t"  "Oh,  I think  not,"  smilingly^    "I  I would have you give it to Mistress  iMortlmer���������surely under tbose condl*  ���������tions you would never run away."  ;   She stole a swift  glance  st  me,  ���������shaking her head.  ' "Thst would be too strong an im*  iprlsonmsnt," I responded Instantly.  !"Under all conditions I prefer not to  ���������give my parole." X ���������  \ "Very well, sir," mors stiffly, his  igenlallty vanishing with my rathqr!  Jourt refusal. "Then I shsll take all  ���������necessary precautions to prevent, es*  ���������cape." He stepped aside to tho ball  [door. "You may send two men in  (here, Ferguson."  ���������  Tbey entered quietly, glancing about  with some curiosity, but taking posl-  jtion on either side of me at Seidon's  [command.    Claire stood beside   the;  [table ln silence, her glance out the'  window.  Only as we wheeled about to  lleave the room did her   eyes   meet!  mine.  Thst swift glimpse beneath the!  dark lashes caused me to leave tbe  room with swiftly beating heart   At  the door I stole another glance back*  iward, but she had sunk Ipto a chair,  her faoe concealed ln her hands. With  Seldon ahead, and-the two guards behind, I tramped down the stairs Into  the basement, and was again locked  within the walls of tbe strong room.  As tbe lock clicked I sat down upon  the bunk far from being disheartened.  Fate hsd been playing strange pranks,  but I was not left without hope, for  I felt assured I had read correctly ihe  Swift message of those" uplifted blue  eyes.   She had not wished me to accept parole; then there must be some  plan of escape already formulated ln  her mind.   I could only wait quietly,  striving to solve the meaning of those  'suddenly uplifted blue eyes, and  tbe  promise they contained.  Hsd, In s lady's doUosts  "Dont despair; if tbey ass sway until after dark I will arteo*.   Om do  nothing before."

With   no  CHAPTER XX.  The Lady'e Plan.  I must have remained there an hour  undisturbed, listening to faint sounds  In the rooms above, and peering out  between the. iron bars at a little  square of blue sky, and some waving  branches. Once, witb ear pressed  ;'agaln8t the door, I could distinguish  tbe regular steps of a sentinel pacing  back and forth, and out of tbe window  I caught the silhouette of a cocked  ���������bat and brown gun barrel. Seldon was  ���������evidently guarding me wltb tho utmost care.  . By tbe light I judged the time somewhat beyond noon, when tbe door  jopened suddenly, and Peter appeared  bearing a trap. He was as mysteriously silent and professional as upon  his first visit not even favoring me  with a glance, bis mind apparently  Intent upon bis duties, moving about  nolselssly, wiping tbe table, and placing bis load of dishes thereon with  great care that all should be arranged  In perfect order. The. door remained  ajar   during   these   preparations,   a  longer any doubt of her Intention, my  apprehension riveted Itself on tho possibility of the British getting baok  before darkness gave opportunity for  putting her plans into execution. As  to wbat they might be I cared nothing, being ready to assume any risk  which would lead to escape. As the  gray of twilight approached, my ears,  strained to the slightest sound, distinguished the changing of sentinels. But  I waited vainly for any visitor; darkness dosed me In, but no ono came  [with food. ������  I pressed my face against tho bars  striving to look Into tho night my  only reward the glimpse of s few distant stars. Suddenly, ss I stood there,  jrolces sounded at a distance, the  words indistinguishable, and then footsteps crushed along the graveled footpath, as though a number of men were  iwnnlng toward the back of the house.  They were below my range of vision,  but a moment later I heard the sounds  of scattered shots, and saw the sharp  flash of firing. I was stMl clinging to  the bars, trying to determine what It  all meant when the door was opened.  Tbo light of a lantern ln his hand  revealed a green and white uniform,  and tho deeply seamed face of a- nan  of fifty.  ���������   "Quick now, yer damned rebel," he  (mid hoarsely. "Bo np an'lam me one,  jand' here's the rope."  |   "What!"  ; "Didn't yer hear? or wasnt yer told  jthe game?

Whether he escaped or was captured,  (the delay would be short With the  [knowledge came action. I bore the  ���������unresisting Ranger to the floor, burl-  ling down the tray of food he bore������in  ia mass of broken crockery, and bound  [him hand and foot, leaving the fellow  {lying across the open doorway. He  ���������was without arms, except bis heavy  Sgun, which I left beside him. An in*  latent I paused to ask a question, holding aloft the lantern so as to see bis  jfsco.  "Now, man, speak quick; you were  ���������given some word for mo? Some In*  istructions bow I was to get away?"  . "Sure; but ye drew tbose cords  (tight!

I had made half ths distance  when s horse neighed suddenly to my  right and, startled at tho sound, I fell  Mst creeping cautiously forward into  fthe shadow of a low bush. I had risen  to my knees, believing the animal  jtnust hs tho one left thore for my use,  when I besrd tbs growl of a voloe, a  man's voloe, from out ths summer  bouse.  An instant I could not locate tho  sound nor distinguish lt clearly; then  s sentence cut the sir so distinctly  thst I recognised tho speaker. Grant!  What was he doing bere? Hsd wo  dewed too long? Hsd Fagin's pur*  | suers returned? If so, why wss he  there in the summer house, snd with  whom wss hs conversing? I crouched  beck listening, afraid to move.  "I saw the gleam of your white  skirt ss I rounded tho house,", he ex*  Claimed. "By Gad, I thought tho  horse was going to bolt with me. Fine  hit of luck this, finding you out here  alone. What's going on out yonder?"  "There wss sn attack on tbe horse  guard, and Mr. Seldon Is in pursuit  But how does lt happen you have returned alone? Hss snythlng occurred  to my father?"  I judged from tho sound that he  ���������sated himself before answering, and  there was a hesitancy sufficiently noticeable, so as to cause tho girl to ask  anxiously:  "He has not been Injured?"  "Who, the colonel!" with a short  laugh. "No fear of that while pursuing those fellows; they ride too fast,  ond are scattered by now all the way  ftom here to the Atlantic Probably a  squad of the same gang out there  fighting  Seldon.

Business Men Meet  The Collingwood District Business  Men's Association held a very interesting session at the Collingwood Institute, on Thursday evening of last  week. School Trustee Morris, president, was in the chair. Several matters which had been criticised by the  association were explained by Councillor Wilbers, who said Vaness Avenue could not. be fixed up untill the  monetary stringency had passed  away and the council was in a better,  position. He regretted that the  people, whose houses fronted on the  avenue, had been annoyed by th*;  abortive attempts at grading, but he  said this grading plan had been inherited from the last council and the  present engineer was not to blame.  The question of a municipal electric  light plant was brought up, but the  feeling of the meeting was that it  vyjoufd be inopportune to borrow  money; for such a big undertaking at  the present moment and not; only  that but the municipality really required more light on the subject. Mr.  Bursill, who has opportunities for  getting information oh the subject  both in the old country and in this,  was asked to bring the matter up at  Concessions Are Now Being Sought  From Municipal CouncU.  Negotiations are proceeding for the  establishment of a rubber factory on  the North Arm of the Fraser, near  Main street, South Vancouver, which,  it is anticipated, will have a payroll  of $20,000 a month within a few years.  It is proposed to erect a factory at  a cost of $25,000, as soon as the terms  of a lease for the necessary land,  about five acres, have been finally  settled and the documents signed.  Among other goods to be manufactured'at the factory will be the Kelly-  Springfield tyres. The Municipal  Council has been approached in regard to certain concessions in the matter of taxes and it is understood that  the council is prepared to meet the  promoters of the scheme during the  initial period of the factory's operations.  TIMBER TALK  A strong protest against the proposal to Increase the royalties on  stumpage from 60 cents to $1 a thousand feet, was made .to Hon. W. R.  Ross, minister of forests and lands, at  a meeting held in the Courthouse on  Monday morning, September 8th. Representations from*the various lumbermen's associations were on hand to  interview the minister and his colleagues, who are inquiring into forestry conditions.  The principal spokesmen were Mr.  R. H. Alexander and Mr. T. P. Paterson, who presented to, the minister a  series of proposals drawn up by a Joint  committee of lumber operators, mill  owners and owners of limits. The  proposals wete that no increase should  be made on the stumpage dues for  No. 3 grades of hemlock, balsam and  cottonwood or low grade cedar, and  that the increases on No. 1 and No. 2  grades of fir and spruce and cedar  should be 25 cents per thousand for  a period of years frdmb 1916 to 1921,  and from 1921 till 1926 a further increase of 25 cents should be put in  force. From 1926 till 1936 lt was suggested that a further general Increase  of 25 cents, per 1000 feet should be  made, so that Nos. I and 2 grades  would then pay $1.25 and No. 3 grades  75 cents per 1000.  In return for these proposed in  creases the lumbermen asked that the  regulations for the grading of lumber  should be embodied in the statute, and  that there should be no increase ot  rentals between now and 1936.  "We consider this to be a most inopportune time to increase the royalties," said Mr. Alexander, in presenting the lumbermen's proposals.  "Many of the mills are working short  another meeting.    At the next meet ,  ing of    the    association Mr. Morris ������������>e *������* otbero are completely shut  will give a paper on the History and  Development of the Local Government. Mr. Morris introduced a most  interesting discussion by saying that  the South Vancouver school trustees  intended, through the medium of the  school trustees convention, to induce  the government to give encouragement to the teaching of agriculture  and floriculture in the schools and  he also thought that portions of tin-  school grounds should be used as  gardens for the children. This suggestion was warmly supported by Mr.  Fraser, who said he had seen the  children's gardens in Portland show,  ing evidence of careful attention and  of affording great delight. Mr. Kent  thought that the time must be looked  forward to when British Columbia  would support her people by her industrial pursuits, and that the culture  of the land was ah industry which  offered splendid results for those who  took it up in a scientific spirit. It  was agreed that an effort, which  should be made to add agriculture to  the school curriculum, would receive  the warm support of the association.  It was also hinted that the association might offer a prize or even found  a scholarship.  CHEAP FUEL FOR  BOUNDARY DISTRICT  down.

South Vancouver, Sept. 19.���������The  meeting of the council this afternoon  received notices bf motion from various councillors, which, if carried into  effect, are likely to effect a very considerable difference in the municipality, including, as they do, motions  with reference to the incorporation of  the municipality as a city municipality and the elimination of the ward  system. The council also went on  record as approving' the establishment  of a packing company industry in the  district, subject to the' establishment  of sanitary safeguards. **  Notices of Motion.  The notices of motion read included  the following:  (1) To Introduce a bylaw to incorporate the municipality into a city  municipality.  (2) To draft a bylaw to change the  name of Westminster Road to Kings-  way.  (3) To introduce a bylaw for the  elimination of the ward system.  (4) To amend the health bylaw.  (5) To bring in a bylaw to govern  the corporation share of cost of all  local improvement work carried on in  future in the municipality.  The health committee proposed that  the medical health offlcer undertake  to have water from private wells analyzed and in such cases where, such  well-water was contaminated orders  be given to fill ln these wells at once.  Council approved.  Packing Industry.  The health committee were asked to  consider an application by the Mainland Packing Company for an alteration in the sanitary regulations, by bylaw, in order tbat the company might  establish an industry in the municipality, the desirability of which, subject to proper sanitary safeguards, the  council approved.  The council is to join with Vancouver, . New Westminster- and Burnaby  in celebrating the opening of Kings-  way on the 30th inst. In this connection council received the report ot  delegates who met today at Burnaby  with orders to join in drawing up the  programme for the occasion.  NEW WE8TMIN8TER EXHIBITION.  New Westminster. Sept. 30.���������Everything is in readiness for the joint celebration on September 30 of the opening ot the great provincial exhibition  at New Westminster and the opening  of King6way, the newly paved highway between Vancouver and New  Westminster and uniting South Vancouver and Burnaby. A half holiday  will be declared in nearly every place  on the lower mainland and the celebration will be in keeping witb the  importance of tbe two events.  A huge automobile parade has been  arranged in which over 600 automobiles will participate1, the parade to  accompany the officials who take part  oyer the new road to the fair grounds  at Queen's Park.  With these two events and a Minto  cup lacrosse game in the afternoon  between the Salmon Bellies of New  Westminster, world's champions, and  the Vancouver Athletic club team, favorite's of the Terminal City, together  with the horse show and special attractions in the evening, there should  be a record crowd at the opening nf  the big fair. The final Minto cup  game1 will be played on Saturday, October 4.  The third annual horse show, which  will be held in the magnificent new  horse show building, will eclipse all  previous shows of its kind held in  New Westminster and will he on a  par witb the best ever held on the  coast. A record has been established  in -the number of entries received and  Major General F. L. Lessard, C. B. of  Toronto, the best judge of horse flesh  on the continent, will act as judge.  Entries have been received for the  cattle department from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Washington and from  many points in Britlsft Columbia, including an entry of 47 head of cattle  The B.C.t.R.  Central   Ratepayers'   Association   Invokes Aid of City Council,  Mayor  and the Provincial Government.  The Central Ratepayers' Association,-which met on Saturday evening,  decided to invoke the aid of the City  Council, the Mayor and the Provincial  Government. ,  The council was asked by resolution  not to grant any further concession  whatever to the company, His Worship  to call public mass meetings in. each  ward for the ^expression of public  sentiment, and the Provincial Government to strictly insist upon the carrying out of the recently passed regulation concerning overcrowding.  Railway  Rights.  It was conceded that the railway  had a right, legally, to ask the increase, but arguments against their  moral fight and financial right to demand the increase were abundant.  Many Eastern railways were able to  sell transportation cheaper, notwithstanding winter snows having to be  cleaned from streets and the greater  cost of power.  The reason the B. C. E. R. had not  earned as much this August as last  was that nearly 200,000 fares difference resulted from holding the exhibition in September this year. The  fact that the usual railway bonus to  concerts were not given in 1913 resulted in a diminution of traffic to  those extra concerts, which had this  year to be abolished. Nobody! was  earning as much this year as last, and  there was no reason that the B. C.  E. R. should not share in the depression, as other business concerns were  doing.  Strong Opposition.  Absolute opposition to any concessions was a feature of the maqy  speeches. Concessions increased the  value of the company's^plant, and Vancouver would have to pay for them  twice when the B. C. E. R. was purchased. The railway had taken 17  cars off the regular runs during the  day, and only put them on again at  rush hours.  They were making $53,000 a month  as the result of the increased fares  and paying out only $800 in increases  to their employees, whose electric  light bills had also been raised to  make up the deficiency. Instead of  paying fiat light rates, the men, said  one speaker, had now to pay metre  rates. The number of car men was  being reduced to make five men do the  work of six.  Electric light, it was alleged, was  bought by the company for less than  a cent and sold for 11 cents.
