Any  very tall structures built hereafter wilt be put up  for advertising purposes, and not-for profit.  There has been a remarkable change bf sentiment within the last few yejrs on the part of  tenants. There was a time when there was a rush  to get into the newest and loftiest of piles. Not  now.        ::, _..,,.������������������; "  It is ssid on high-authority that there hardly  is a building of more than twenty-two stories in  New York that, pays a dividend. One, of more  than thirty stories, that paiOourteen per cent,  for the first few years after its completion, does  not pay expenses today.  Tenants do not want to go too high from the.  ground. They are expressing this feeling in the  most forceful way possible���������by refusing to rent  ��������� space above a certain level. Whatever the cause  ���������the long elevator journey, the comparative isolation, or just a shade of dread oq������ doubt���������the  faet remains that office room 'way high up is not  desired. !,-;  The ideal skyscrajjer is of eighteen or twenty  stories. In such buildings the space above the  ninth floor is considered choice., Below the ninth  floor the light and air are not so good.  Architects say the skyscraper craze has resulted in the overbuilding of the office district of  nearly every city of considerable size in America.  As a conseqhence there has come a demoralization in rents. In New York this is particularly  noticeable. A few years ago space in first-class  down-town structures commanded from one dollar and seventy-five cents to two dollars and twenty-five cents per square foot pef year. Now space  is being offered at one dollar per square foot. Any  person who desires to purchase a job lot of these  skyscrapers at reduced prices has the opportu-*  nity. Their owners are tired of them. In some  of these buildings from twenty-five per cent, to  fifty per cent, of the space is vacant.  The world at large has looked upon the tip of  Manhattan Island as one of the most valuable  pieces of real estate on earth, but the fact is that  rentals are much higher in the district between  Twenty-third and Forty-second Streets, Fourth  and Sixth Avenues, than in Wall Street or lower  Broadway. The rentals paid today in the moderate-size skyscrapers in- Fifth Avenue, between  Thirty-fourth and Forty-seeond -Streets, are one  hiindred per cent, more than Wall Street properties command. There is a reason for this aside  from the over-building of the lower end of the  city. Wall Street _��������� in the doldrums. The stockbroker is wearing sackcloth. Business is so bad  that three thousand employees have been dropped  by brokers since January fast. But even when  Wall Street reviyet ttere ii.*ot likely to be a recrudescence of the skyscraper madness.  ./.  Oriental Immigration from a Health Standpoint���������Canada Must Be Aroused.  It has been the duty of the citizens of British Columbia for many years to stand  between Canada and Oriental immigration^ y!The East have always been pre-  pared to "throw downthe bara" The Westyhas most^vigorously protested, with  the result that only a comparatively small number of this class of immigrants has  .secured admission'' ' -'^i^fer  ������������������  The opposition ^y't^;:W-^'!!9i*M)'i������^e&; Jrffg^y based on social, industrial and  racial reasons. There i_viidweyer, &. reason jmor-e potent, if possible, than any of  these, viz., Health���������not in the or^nary acceptance of the term, fqjptin its relation  to possible chronic diseases, peculiar to a rate, and which, because of its presence  for centuries among them, renders them imnjune from infection, or at least partially  SO,' ' 7~.       '"':  Recent careful scientific research reveals 1 the startling fact that the Oriental  races are infected with several chronic bacterial diseases, and the girave danger of  the introduction of these diseases among th| whites of the Pacific slope with possibly fatal results.. ^  A serious and devitalizing disease knowi^ as iXdver fluke" (Opistborchis) is as  common among Japanese as the hookworm among the negroes. Katasurada, a  prominent Japanese investigator, found 654 persons infected put.of 1,075 examined,  or 60 per cent. This disease is of a chronic character, and has a death-rate among  the Japanese of 16 per thousand, It is much more dangerous than hookworm,  equally devitalizing, and would be fatal to whites once it got hold among them.  Quite a number of cases have already been found in the United* States.  Another discovery was that the Japanese and Chinese were commonly affected  with Ihe "Lung fluke" (Faragxmimous WefctennanU),   It ia something similar to;  consumption, and is alro chronic^ <x    ^^jjtt*Jk~*       . w^-  With* respect tx> these two bacterisl^W tfet maWy .MejjSals  are immune from attack because, as a<^e, they were thoroughly inoculated; but if  once introduced among the whites, a most favorable field would he found for the  bacteria with fatal and dire results.  In addition to the foregoing, we know that Japan, China and India is the  home of bubonic plague, smallpox, blood fluke, hookworm and cholera. We also  know that persons who have been afflicted with these parasitic diseases often become  "carriers," ,     ���������  In November and December, 1912, American Public Health reports show that  70 out of every J00 Japanese seeking admission were infected with the hookworm.  In Japan in 1912 there were at least 2721 cases of cholera. In -Formosa it was  found that 15 per cent, of the inhabitants had " Lung fluke. '���������'  There are 800 millions of souls in these Oriental countries. Science has demonstrated that quite a large percentage-of4hose recovering from a parasitic disease become "carriers," and thus we are faced with a grave problem���������shall we allow  these awful Asiatic plagues to be introduced among Ais? The bacteria of these  diseases is.conveyed from one person to another through the excreta of the human  body* The only possible method to control infection is by a perfect system of  sewerage and its sanitary disposal.  The Oriental gardeners, from whom Vancouver citizens purchase their vegetables have a regular system of collecting the excreta and mixing it with water and  pouring the mixture over the vegetable to force their growth. This unspeakable  practice is carried on continuously at our very doors. This vile and nauseating  method of gardening is not only obnoxious but is fatally dangerous. How long are  we to tolerate this sort of thing. Ignorance may shut out the awful thought, but it  will not keep out the fatal parasite.  Through the introduction of hookworm in the Southern States by the negroes,  the whites of the South now have only 40 to 60 per cent, of normal efficiency, as  compared with those of the North. Physical inefficiency and mental inertia are its  results there. The poorer white children have become anaemic, pot-bellied and dull-  witted, and do Uot improve as they grow older���������all directly traceable to hookworm  introduced by the negros.  This awful experience may be repeated on the Pacific slope if we allow the  Asiatic to enter in large numbers, or even if allowed at all, without critical medical  examination.  We have a right to demand protection; we haye a solemn duty imposed upon ns  to demand the co-ooeration of the Dominion, Provincial*and Local health authorities to prevent the entry of anyone affected wtih these chronic diseases.  Above all, we must insist unon an official inspection and investigation of the  beastly practices of the Oriental gardener���������or, better still, a wholesale boycott of  the Oriental gardener and the encouragement of the white man.  Carson's Orange Cat  Sir Edward Carson had a cat,  It stood upon the fender;  And everv time it caught a mouse,  It shouted "No Surrender!" *  He left it by the fireside,  When'er he went away;  On his return he always found  Jt singing, "Dolly's Brae."  The traitors grew indignant,  Af\hearihg such a noise;  But Carson made the cat sit up.  And sing "The Protestant Boys."  The traitors then decided,  To hang it with a rope;  But every time thev tried the bolt,  It yelled, "Down with the Pope!"  The people came from far and near,  To hear the pussy sing;  Good old "Britannia Rules the Waves,'  And "May God Save the King."  A few said, "What a pit*  The cat is such a fool!"  But Carson's cat yelled out the more,  "We will not have H6me Rule."  I  .-ftp',.

It has recently come to light that those who are supposed  to rule over our destinies at home are more or  less looking for trouble with France. yj"y  , England and Itoe Empire has been visibly '  menaced by the erroneous growth of the German  navy.   The British fleet was promptly recalled  from the .Mediterranean and stationed in what ia ;  sometimes called the German Ocean and at others  the North Sea.   . !' ������������������' ���������'  '���������-';,;���������-' ��������� ;,;.  Our Foreign Office, instigated by the wiMlfifij^  of our late Sovereign, King Edward VII., paved  the way for a cordial understanding with France,'  and a reconciliation with Russia in order to maintain the balance of power and feounteract tbe  German peril. "'-.?.��������� "''-Xyy-  The movement towards friendship with  France was important because we have already in :  our Island story fought 25 wars with our French  neighbours. For over 60 years onr Indian Mediterranean policy has been actuated by the knowl-K  edge that the forces of the C_ar desired to expel  us from India. Friendship was not established  with France without more or less onerous and  honorable obligations on the part of Greet Britain to come to the help of her neighbours if the  Germans attacked the French Republic. v No  treaty was made, still less signed. No nation  loves another because it admires Its beautiful  eyes. By methods known to the great profession '  called "diplomacy" France was led to under*-  stand that, in spite of the absence of a treaty,  England would not be found wanting in the event  of a second Franco-German war. In the event of  war six English divisions at least were to be  despatched to the aid of France. The moral effect in Europe of once more seeing the British  uniform on the Continent for the purpose of resisting a would-be master of the world would  have been of supreme importance to France. For  some time the French were in doubt as to whether  the traditional "perfidy," which is always at-,  tributed by foreigners to the action of England  in critical times would not be repeated in the  event of a sp-uggle between the Dual and Triple  Alliances. -  Means were found to allay the natural anxieties of France. A distinguished general, high  up in the councils of the War Office, who is a perfect French scholar, was allowed to spend many  months of the year with the Bastern army.of  France. This general is a finished diplomat. He  was backed by his colleagues in tLb War Office, ���������  who carried on their own policy regardless of par*  (Contlnu-M Pag������ 5)      .7  SK  iXS/X-  yy  y*x.yiy  .������������������vAay.  yyy  ,^.i  ri4.'  .7  yyy y  ^'-^Sj  >w  ^y^j^if^  ^i*sM-i"-f--*-:r^i  aeH;  :$&2Xm THE WESTERN CALL.

C, that has a  tendency *to reflect oh the good name  ot the community and Incidentally to  very seriously impair Its efficiency on  temperance lines before the general  public of this municipality of Sur*  rey, in the struggle against the liquor  interests ln their efforts to otytain additional licenses for the sale! of* the  pernicious stuff ln the various settlements therein. .  I refer particularly to the address  of Mayor Cotterell at a recent temperance meeting in your city.  The worthy Mayor is reported to  have stated that "the triumph over the  liquor traffic In Blaine, Wash., which  had been hindered by the fact that It,  liquor, could be bought at White Rock,  B.

DOWDING  Captain and Adjutant  GUARDING OUR  INVESTMENTS  No one who has folowed the ever*  changing series of events In the world  of finance, can fall to be impressed  with thq tendency Of the general public to use its hard-won savings in fool*  hardy enterprises. The get-richquick  promotors have been much fn evidence, not only here in Vancouver,  but in air the large, cities of Canada  and the United 8tates, and these  make it their business to prey upon  the covetousnesS and credulity of  mankind.  It has been said that it Is impossible, to frame legislation which will  prevent investors making fools of  themselves by entering Into wild-cat  schemes. Mr. A. J. Treble shows, in  Canadian Counti-yman, that it ia, to  frame legislation which wil prevent  investors making fools of themselves  by entering into wildcat schemes. It  Is possible, however, to pass laws  which will to a large extent check the  operations of the financial pirates who  Inveigle, the Inexperienced into fake  propositions. This has been demon*  strated in several states across the  border where so-called "Blue Sky"  laws have been passed. These were  framed with a view to making it Illegal for persons to go hawking worthless securities about the country, and  the record of the past few years has  justified their existence in every particular.  Kansas was the first state to have a  "Blue''.Sky" "law: Joseph N. Dolley,  state bank commissioner, drafted the  bill, which was entitled "An Act to  Provide for the Regulation and Supervision of Investment Companies," a  couple of years ago. It required every  corporation or   association, domestic  holder might at any time inspect-the  books of the company.  Within the first six months after the  bill became law more than seven hundred applications were filed under it,  and of these only about ficty were  approved and granted certificates.  Not one of the others dared sell a  share of stock in the state; that is,  unless the agent were willing to risk  a fine of anywhere from $100 to 15,000,  or ninety* days In Jail, or both. Furthermore, any person who made-a.  false statement In filing an application for a certificate, to do business  subjected himself to a fine of from  $200 to $10,000 and to not less than a  year or more than ten years in the  state penitentiary.  The immediate result of the, placing  ot the Blue Sky Law on the statute  books was to drive the vast majority  of the fake promotors out ot Kansas,  and since that time the people have  enjoyed comparative freedom from  wildcatting. The remarkable success  led several, other- states to enact similar legislation, so that now in many  portions of the United States the financial pirate has bean put out of bust*  ness.  '���������"���������  During the last year or so there has  been an agitation to have a similar  law enacted in the Dominion, and-in  many portions of the United States  the financial pirate has been put out  of business.  During the last-year or so there has  been an agitation to have a similar  law enacted ln the Dominion, nd in  the minds of many lawyers it is only  a matter of time until some such pro*  -'-     -*��������� be made to protect the  ���������������������������������������������������������*��������������� public who do not know how  to protect" f������*������������������������sp������ves.

Representations  from the auxiliaries, circles and bands  from the two districts were present.  Nearly two hundred were accommodated to lunch and tea in the church.  During the morning session the reports from organizers were read, and  showed seven new v organizations.  Mrs. H. B. Holmes and-Mrs. J. G.  Challies, organizers respectively, for  the East and West districts, as well  as the secretary-treasurers, Mrs. C.  C. Knight and Mrs. Challenger, were  retained in office for another year.

Reports were read from the  fifteen auxiliaries, pointing out excellent work accomplished and planned  for the future. During the lunch  hour Miss Nichol, president of the  Wesley auziliary, on behalf of the  West district, extended words of  welcome and reviewed the history of  the Women's Missionary society in  Vancouver, saying that the first auxiliary had been formed in the old  Homer street church, which was the  antecedent' of Wesley. This auxiliary was formed 23 years ago. Mrs.  A. N. Miller, of Grace church, responded on behalf of the, Eastern section.  Very helpful suggestions on Christian stewardship were contained in  the address of Mrs. W. Savage, and  in the discussions which' folowed in  which she and Mrs. Knight answered  questions on this' subject. Three  minute bright reports-were listened to  from eight circles and eight bands,  and questions taken from the question drawer were answered by Mrs  Spencer. Mrs. J. J."

Policy el Iriltrt PollrtcHM IN  NlUtiry emdtt SMd Be tot  < Continued iron* P*M  I  liamentary assurances--'from ministers  tq the contrary.  The Cabinet' has repeatedly assured  the public that we are not bound to  help France by sending troops to tbe  Belgian frontiers when she -is attacked by Germany. On the other  hand the French army, which is really  another term for the French nation,  has come to believe through its  friends on the English general's staff  that when attacked, at least 150,000  English soldiers will fly to the rescue  of Frenchmen. We know that two  years ago, when war with Germany  was imminent, over the 'Morocco  crisis, arrangements were made to  t'rasnport - the Aldershot Expeditionary force to Havre. Since then a  good deal has happened, the influence  of the Moderate Liberal and Liberal  Imperialist parties in the Cabinet  has waned, and it is rather understood  that it is now intended to leave  France in the lurch so far as military  aid on her frontiers is concerned.  As a soldier I am not saying that  this policy is wrong or right, having  no concern with politics, but I see  clearly that such a policy must cause  an intense hatred and contempt for  England and the English from one  end of France to the other. The just  resentment of France must fall upon  the innocent British public who are,  I believe, unconscious that the- War  Office permanent staff have one policy and their political masters an entirely different one.  The hereditary foreign - policy of  England has always been, to fight  the would-be world conqueror whoever he was^and .wherever he came  from: Five times have our Island  stock defeated the hopes and ambitions of monarchs like Charlemagne,  Philip II. and Napoleon. The factors today are, however, very different. The armies'at Waterloo,were  something like equal, the length of  the battle" line was,, roughly, three  mile's. Today the length of a moderate battle line is 100 miles.  England could not possibly place  more than 200,000, trops in the field  and keep them up to' strength with  the mortage of war. ' Germany can  and will-put four million men in the  field. I foresee.that if England sends  her few handfuls of men to the  French frontier the German commander Would leave the French and  everything . else to concentrate on,  surround 'and destroy the English.  (There- would be> mourning in every  rsTf^et' inij1 village1 in the Kingdom,  mourning in the palace and cottage  and great weeping of womer and  children. The mothers of England  would not be comforted.  If the policy of the War Office officials is right then the Cabinet  should publicly pledge the use of the  British army to France.- If the government policy is right our help is  to be given to France, then bur  neighbours and friends should not be  left in the dark as to English honest  intentions.' We must look ahead. It  is no use'pretending we are going to  the rescue of France if we are not  going to do so. I am not discussing  the policy of sending troops or "Withholding them, ibut in the interests of  the people of the Empire in general I  do affirm that the time has come  when the policy of the politicians of  whatever party, the policy of the  soldier should cease to clash. That  is my task as a sentry on outpost  duty.  -..-���������'.���������'.������������������"���������'���������    -��������� '   ''��������� "���������--��������� ;,'v ���������   ->-'.-.    ������������������;-������������������   ...   .���������'���������.-, .��������� :.;-.-���������: ..;mk:~iX"'v-Tr ";&^.?>y .&',?**������<''_  >������������������-.���������-������������������-y ��������� 1-X-- -XX:y,Z:y^''y*yyy-y     ; "���������;���������;, ,..

Blood streamed from a  cut ln my forehead, nearly blinding  me, but I wiped it away, and took one  glance at tbelr angry upturned faces,  and gained a glimpse* of my own men.  Tbere were but six of us, aad one of  {these lay helpless propped against tbe  wall. Tom and I stood alone, bis face  'blackened by powder, bis shirt ripped  Into rags; the otbtr three wara above,  [pistols ln hand.  "Art they loaded." I gasped.  ;  Tee. sir."  *  "gtand ready then, tat too* oat fbr  above; tbere waa a gawd np  ��������� Hit  ! J.    1  .' J.  ���������     L  ������������������'t  !

I ftlt weak from loss of blood, my  itaad reeling, and had to hold to tht  trail. Below us, growling like wild  ib easts, but seemingly ltaderlets, the  (mob crushed forward to tht foot of  itta stairs. Suddenly I saw Grant, and  'the sight of him gave me new lift.  j "Ton black-faced hound." I called  jdown angrily. "You've kept yourself  isaft eo far. Now come on."  1 Ht snarled some answer, what. I  {know not There was an empty pistol  [tn my belt, and I flung lt at him with  !all the force of my arm. Ht dodged,  ���������tht weapon striking the man behind.  |With a howl of rage the fellows leaped  ���������toward us, bearing Grant on the crest  lof tbt wave. The pistols of tht Dra-  igooaa cracked; three fell, blocking the  'stairs with their bodies. We had room  now In which to swing our Iron bars.  ���������Colonel Mortlmtr Was Propped Up  on Hla Pillow. Ont Hand Grasping  a Pistol.  ;and we battered them like demons. I  ,lost sight of Grant, the red drip of  blood over my eyea making all before  me a mist ' I only knew enough to  strike. Tet fight as we would jhere  "was no holding them. Wt were forced  ito give way. Guns began to spit flre.  |I saw the wounded Dragoon dragged  .down under the feet, ot the mob;  {hands gripped my legs, and I kicked  *at the faces in my effort to tear loose.  jTom reeled against the wall, his arm  'Shattered by a blow, and one of the  ���������men above came tumbling over me,  [shot dead. Tta fall of him Cleared  ;the stairs an instant; then the rail  -broke, and several toppled over with  'It I stumbled back almost to the top,  ���������sweeping the hair and blood out of  'nty eyes. What*���������what was the matter? Tbey were running, those fellows  down there���������struggling, fighting  smong themselves to get away. Oaths,  yells, cries of sudden fear, made a perfect babel. I could not understand,  could not grasp the meaning of tbe  sudden panic Who were those men  surging IU through tbt front door,  pouring out through tta library f Then  a voice roared out:  "Bedad, they're Fagln's h*il-bounds,  byes���������ter bell wid "eml"  Where had I beard tbo voice before?  I sank down, too weak to stand, my  bead banging over the edge of tbo  stairs, gome band drew me hack, but  I bad no strength left Only I could  think���������and tbe truth came to me.  Camden militia! Camden militia! By  "all tbe gods, Farrell was there! It  was tbe voice ot the Irish minute man  I hear the nlgbt we captured Pela*  van's raiders. Then I closed my eyes,  and forgot  CHAPTER XXXIV,  ���������earthing fer Claire.  I wss unconscious, yet not for long.  Tbe first touch of water served to revive me, and I became aware tbat an  arm supported my bead, although  everything was Indistinct before my  eyes.  "More water, Mike," said a voice  close at band. "Yes. that will do.  Where is Farrell? Oh, Dan, this is  Major Lawrence."  "Ont of the Dragoons said bt waa j  in command.  Hurt badly?"  "No, I think not; but utterly exhausted, and weak from loss of blood.  They put up a game fight"  "Only three on their feet when we  got ln. Hullo. Lawrenoe, getting back  to the world, lad?"  "Tes," I managed to answer, feeling  strength enough to lift myself, and  vaguely noticing his features. "Is that  you, Parrell?"  "It certainly ls," cheerfully. "Duval  has his arm about you, and the Cam*  den boys are herding those devils  down below. You had some fracas  from the way things look. How many  men had you?"  I rubbed my head, endeavoring to  recollect staring down into the hall.  It was filled with dead and wounded  men, and at the foot of the stairs waa  a pile of bodies.  "Twelve, altogether," I replied finally. "Tbey���������they were too many for  as.-  "Three to one, or more, I should  Judge.  We got here Just in time."  I waa up now, looking into their  faots, slowly grasping the situation.  Tes," I said, feeling tht necessity  of knowing. "How did lt happen?  What brought you?  Washington���������"  "All natural enough. Clinton got  away night before laat with what was  }tft of his army. Left fires burning,  iead made a forced march to tbe ships  at dandy Hook. Left ev*nythlng to  tare bis troops. Washington, realizing tta aoSUssnsis of holding them  longer, aaat snoot ef his militia home.  About sis miles ont there on the pike  road a half-orasy preacher named  Jenks same up with us. He was too  badly frightened to   tell a   straight  jStory, but -we got out of him that there  was a fight on here, and came over as  .fast as our horses would travel!" Hie  'eyes swept the haU.   "Five minutes  later would have been too late."  :   "But FarreU, the   girl!    Do    you  know anything about the girl?"  '.   "What girl?   Do you mean Claire  Mortimer?   ls she. here?"  ���������   "Tes, ber father Is lying helplessly  jwounded up stairs, and she must be  [with him.   Eric is somewhere ln the  'hall, either dead or wounded.   I saw  him tail Just as we retreated to tho  stairs."  Farrell leaned over and called to  jsome one below.  :   "Not yet, sir," was the answer.  I  "Well, hunt for him. Now, well go  (up and find Claire.   Major, can you  jelimb the rest of the stairs? Help him,  ���������Duval."  :   I experienced no great difficulty, my  (strength coming back rapidly.   There  was    a  wounded  Dragoon   leaning  against the wall, and half-way down  the hall lay another body, faoe down.  Without doubt this was tbe guard Fa*  gin had stationed there.   Duval paused  to help tbe wounded man, but Farrell  ���������and I moved on across tht dead guard  |to tht open   door   btyond.   Colonel  [Mortimer,    unablt   to   move,    was  [propped up on his pillow, ont hand  Igrasplng a pistol.   With shaking arm  [ht levelled it at us.  |   "Who are you?   Quick, now!" he  [quavered. "I've shot one, and I'm good  jfor more."  > 'Tou know me. Colonel,1* and Far*  irell stepped Inside. "I am 'Bull' Far*  jrell; this is Major Lawrence." Ht  [looked at us with dull ayes, bis band  {falling weakly.  "FarreU���������FarreU���������surely, the black-  smith. What Lawrence? Tbe���������tta of-  jfloer Clalrt knows?"  "Tes; he's a rough-looking object X  , admit, but there has been a fight  ;down below, sir, in which he had a  ahare. We've Just cleaned out Red Fa*  ���������gin's gang.   We came up here to teU  the good news to you and your daugh-  !*--���������������������������  Iter."  '   The Colonel's head sank back upon  [the mussed pillow.  "My daughter���������Claire���������sho is not  tare."  "Not here!" I cried, aroused by the  admission. "Did she not return to  :you?"   ���������  "No; they came for her to go down  ���������staire���������a tall man with a black beard,  land two others. They took her away  an hour ago, and I have seen nothing  'of her since. I���������heard the shots, the  .sound of fierce fighting, but could not  move from the bed. TeU me, Major,  twhat has become of my little girl?"  "I do not know," I confessed, gas*  ing about |n bewilderment. "8he came  up the stairs, I am sure. It was Just  as the fight began, and I bad scarce*  Jy a moment to observe anything before we were at it fiercely. She shot  Fagin down, and then ran."  "Shot Fagin!   Claire!"^'  "Tes; she was Justified. Had she  not acted so quickly I would have  done so myself. He was forcing her  into marriage."  "Into marriage! With whom!*'  "Captain Grant," I answered pan.  sionately. "it was a deliberate plot,  although he pretended to be Innocent,  and a helpless . prisoner. Later tbe  man fought with the outlaws against  us; after Jones was killed he even assumed Command."  - "He has been hand and glove with  tbose fellows from the first, Colonel,"  chimed in Farrell hoarsely. "I've  known It. and told Lawrence so a  month ago. I only hope he was killed  down below. But wbat can have become of Claire?" . -  "She never passed along here," insisted Mortimer, "for I haven't taken  ray eyes from that door."  "Then she is hiding somewhere in  tbose front rooms. Come on, Lawrence, and we'll search them."  We went out hurriedly, leaving tbo  woonded man lying helplessly on tbe  bed, and stepped-carelessly across the  dead sentinel lying ln the hallway.  The memory ot Peter recurred to me.  Ht was not the kind to desert bis mispress at such a time. Stopping Far-  ;rtll,M stepped back to inquire. Tbe  iColonel opened his eyes wearily at  [Sound of my voice.  "He is not here," ta explained slow,  ly. "Both Peter and Tonepah were  sent away to find a surgeon, and have  inot returned. We anticipated no danger here with Captain Grant present."  I ground my teeth savagely togeth*  ier, recalling the treachery of tht lat*  iter, bis Insults to Clalrt, bis decelv*  Ung of Eric, his steaUng of papers,  jhoplng thus to ruin his own Colonel,  'his alliance with Fagin, his selling of  British secrets. Here was a villain  (through and through and I hoped be  had already paid tbe penalty. If not,  1 vowed tbe man should never escape.  But the thought of the missing girl  came back, driving all else from my  'mind. She waa ln nont of those rooms  wt searched, nor did we discover the  slightest evidence of her having been  there. As I stood in tbe door of the  deserted music-room staring helplessly about, a sudden possibility occurred  to me. Ay! that must be tht truth,  tbt fun explanation of her vanishing.  She had come flying up the stairs,  frightened, desperate���������so far as she  knew, alone against Fagin's unscrupulous band. She had not returned to  her father, or escaped by way of the  haU. Where then could she have  gone? The secret staircase, down  which she had hurried me, and which  waa known only to herself, Eric and  Pater. I gripped Fan-ell's arm eagerly.  "Tou know this house weU���������did you  ever hear of secret passages ln it?"  "I have heard it whispered in gossip," be answered, "that such were  here ln the old Indian days.   Why?"  "Because it Is true.   The girl hid  me here trom  Grant    And  that is  where wt will find her.   The opening  ts there by tht false chimney, but I  (Cvntir..

Fraser Valley Development  League, represented by Mr. Otway Wil*  kle, secretary, and Mr. William Gay,  of Lulu Island, met the South Vancouver Board ot Trade in conference  Friday night as to the best means of  settling the Fraser Valley. Mr. WUUe  said that during the short time of the  league; it had "been Instrumental in  bringing a good number of settlers  with capital into the valley, but If the  work was dropped he was afraid the  valley would be given the go-by by intending- settlers aad manufacturers; He  ssid there, were seventeen municipal!;  ties' interested in the Fraser Valley,  and he suggested tbat a monthly con-  contribution of from $10 to $16 from  each municipality would provide sufficient funds to carry on the work of  the league, whose headquarters were  the. Vancouver Progress Club. Numerous questions were asked oy members  of the South Vancouver board with the  Idea of finding out whether the work  of the league was not simply the  means of bringing about an.exchange  of property without Increasing the  number of settlers. Mr. Wilkle denied  that such was the result of the league's  work. Many of the. eld settlers, he  said had more land than they thought  they required," or more, than they could  work profitably, and they were willing  tb sell a portion of their cleared and  cultivated lands to settlers. The league  was established to bring these parties  together with a view of bringing into  the valley, more capital and more permanent residents who would settle on  the hind. The question of financial  support for ^ the. league was left over  till the next meeting of the Board of  Trade.  The question was raised at the conference whether a man could earn a  comfortable .living for himself and  family; on a small holding in the Fraser  Valley. Replying to the question, Mr.  William Gay, a Lulu laland settler  with twenty-two years experience on  the island; said hei was convinced that  any one *-ho took a five-acre holding  could make a comfortable living by  going in for small fruit culture.

Mr.  I Gay said he knew of Chinamen wbo  were paying $66 an acre rent and were  making money in vegetable growing.  The only reason why white men could;  not do the same, be said was because j  they did not bring their produce direct 1  to the consumers as the Chinamen did.]  Mr. Gay spoke very favorably of the  scheme proposed by the Soutb Van-'/  couver Board of Trade to establish a  wholesale produce market in South  Vancouver, which he said would be  of great benefit'to' producers and consumers.  >  Soutb Vancouver Day at the Progress Club was utilized as an opportunity, by several prominent men of  the municipality to make more widely  known the past development and future, possibilities of this favorably situated portion of Greater Vancouver.  There were present South Vancouver Council, and its Board of.Trade,  as well as the harbor commissioners  fir the North Arm of tbe Fraser.  Reeve, Kerr, Councillor Wilbers and  Mr. H. B. A. Vogel were the principal  speakers. There was a good attendance of the representative men of  South Vancouver present.  In his address on public utilities,  Reeve Kerr said that South Vancouver council was unanimously in favor  of municipal ownership, which, he  said practically meant tbat public utilities would be owned by the people for  the people.. These utilities would include street car service, electric light,  gas, water, public wharfs,'telephones,  industrial sites and street paving machinery.  Referring to the public and economic advantages of civic ownership,  Reeve Kerr cited cases in Great Britain and other countries where the system had worked with highly satisfactory results.  He considered that the extent and  importance of the part played by Soutb  Vancouver in the fortunes of Greater  Vancouver were not fully realized.  The quiet and wonderful development  of this municipality even during the  late financial stringency had not been  excelled by any part of the peninsula.  He believed that by owning her own  industrial waterfront and industrial  sites, South Vancouver would greatly  encourage, industries to locate in the  place.  Mr. H. B. A. Vogel said that South  Vancouver had some ot the best industrial sites that were greatly required.  Councillor Wilbers spoke strongly in  favor of municipal ownership and referred to the public feeling.  i FURNITJJRE  STORE  aj34*UI������St.  !

At the preliminary  trial Jeffries waa remanded to a  higher.^ourt.  ��������� At the inquest held on Tuesday on  tbe boay ot Walter Batt, it waa stated  In tbe evidence tbat a request bad  come from the North Shore Iron  Works to the hardware firm of Johnston & Salisbury which resulted in  the firm calling up the Imperial Oil  Co. of Vancouver and ordering two  kegs of astral oil, a cheap grade of  coal oil, and by some error two kegs  of gasolene had been delivered .about  5 p.m. In the dark the distinction in  the labels had not been noticed. Nothing further was forthcoming aa to why  the fumes were not distinguished during the pouring of the oil on the fuel.  The Inquiry was adjourned for ten  days to permit the Injured Companions of the dead man to be present.  ��������� It will be remembered tbat young  Batt's death resulted ffom an explosion which occurred on Friday nigh*  at 8 p.m. at the mouth of Lynn Creek,  where the hulk of the old warship  "Egerie" was about to be fired. Enveloped in a blinding swirl of flame  that scorched black their faces and  hands the six.men employed by the  North Shore* Iron Works, who had the  job in hand to get rid of the. ship, owe  tbe tact that they were not incln r-  ated alive to one of their number, Mr.  Wm.
