Including (the produce of the  home wheat crop of 1912, and converting the imported flour into an equivalent quantity of wheat,  the total quantity of wheat available for consumption in the United Kingdom was 298,598,000  bushels,, compared with 283,780,800 bushels in  1911-12, and 270,829,760 bushels in 1910-11.

The Imports from -Canada,  39,665,000 bushels, are the largest yet recorded  from that country; there was a faU, on the other  hand, in the imports from Australia, the quantity  sent being less than in the three preceding years.  Increased supplies during the year came from  India and Argentina; there was a slight decrease  ha the imports from Russia. A factor of increasing importance in recent years in the wheat trade  has been the imports from southeastern Europe;  the imports from Turkey and Roumania were  2,671,000 bushels in 1910-11 and 5,158,000 bushels  in 1911-12; in 1912-13, however, ithey dropped to  the unimportant figure of 200,000 .bushels.  WIPBAT *X*0*T������  Russia is now the ch-ef wheat exporting country  in the world; her exports were 5,128,764 tons in  1909 and 6,178,767 tons in 1910, while in 1910,  the United States exported 2,760,000 tons, Argentina 1,970,000 tons, Canada 1,400,000 tons, British  India 1,200,000 tons and Roumania 1,900,000 tons.  ITAUAN WmO^ATION IN 1912  The total number of emigrants.from all parts of  Italy was larger in 1912 than in 1911, the greatest  increase in numbers in proportion to population  being from the Marches, Calabria, Sicily, the Ah-  ruzzi, Basilicata and Latium. As in former years  the emigrants from Northern Italy mostly spread  into other European countries, while those from  the south chiefly sought their fortunes beyond the  seas. Most of the emigrants consist of agricultural  labourers, shepherds, day labourers, masons, iron  works men and other industrial workers. The  better educated classes were poorly represented.  In 1912, 308,140 passports were made out for  European countries as against 271,065 in 1911; the  surplus, numbering 30,405 individuals, went chiefly  to France, Germany and Austria-Hungary. The  number of emigrants to North and South America  was, 399,713 in 1912, as against 260,372 in 1911.  In both years the largest numbers went 4,0 the  United States, the numbers rising from 191,087  to 267,637. The number of emigrants to Canada  rose from 9,094 to 18,991, of those to Argentina  from 32,719 to 72,154, of those to Brazil   from  * 22,287 to 35,562, to Chile, Peru and Bolivia from  1,061 to 1,530, and to Central America from 1,116  to 1,438. On the other hand, the number of emigrants to Mexico fell from 1,020 to 758, and that  of emigrants to Uruguay and Paraguay from 1,988  to 1,643. Owing (to the.annexation of Libya, the  emigrants to Africa increased by 8,332, while 82  and 394 fewer went to Asia and Oceania respee-  ;.  tfrrely.  The Kitsilano Methodist Church is the first church  in B. C. set apart for institutional work. The opening is on the 14th and the 21st. On the 14th the  services, morning and evening, will be conducted by  Dr. Chown and on the 21st by Dr, Sipprell and Dr.  Crummy. There will be special music. The new  church is of concrete with interior furnishings of  mahogany and seats about 800.  Former Mayor would try for office again���������Attacks Mayor Baxter's Administration  There is to be a real mayoral contest. L. D. Taylor has announced himself as  an opponent of Mayor Baxter.  Without in a*ay way reitlecting upon JiiE. Taylor, in this issue we are forced to  say that in our opinion he has made a mistake in attacking Mayor Baxter's administration. This has been a most trying year, and in spite of serious handicap  Mayor Baxter has guided the city's anMi* with great skill. He has given us a  most; careful and thorough government, yThere| has been no waste energy, and all  has been done that was possible under the circumstances. No doubt exists as to the  outcome of the contest. Mr., Taylor will add zest to the Contest, but his defeat is  certain as no reason exists why Mayor Baxter should be refused the fcustomary  second term.  The Vancouver Islaad Coal Strike  The full report of Commissioner Price regarding the Vancouver Island coal  strike, which has only recently been published, is a most disappointing document.  In the first place it is clearly evident throughout that the commissioner was prejudiced against the men. *He invariably puts.&e worst possible construction upon  the actions of the men and seems to think twit the operators are a species of  angels incapable of an unjust or biai^d action. .        ^ '     y, v   '->  Re dismissed the contention of the men tfett, the real cause of the trouble was  "diseriminfttaon against $&������^^ ike ������^>^iwiSt|^Xtto fca&  reported gas in some of the workings, by saying, "1% w#4d seem gjfeat fo%.on1;he  part of any mine owner to discourage anyone from assisting in the^protection and  safety of the mine.'* In his opinion such an action hy a Mine Owner would be unthinkable, and still he ref uses to accept seriously masses of evidence supporting the  contention.      ;;-.yr-f':  In another place he says: "The influence exerted by unions is of ten out of all  proportion to their numbers.,' J)id the Dominion Government appoint Mr. Price  to write a homily on the influence of unions? or, was it not, rather, to ascertain the  cause of the trouble?    .  He seems to have decided in his own mind that the men acted in bad faith  throughout and that the Companies were in all cases, like Ceasar's wife/above reproach.  The tondemned Miners  All who have followed the course of this dispute in an impartial spirit must  feel intense regret at the fate of the majority of those now imprisoned. Some of  them are, no doubt, guilty of serious offences, but the majority are only great, simple-minded fellows, who have been guilty of more or less trivial misdemeanors.  They are not criminals. Many who pleaded not guilty have since been acquitted by the  assize court, while those who foolishly pleaded guilty, received the unusual sentence of two years, in most of the cases.  These men are not criminals���������many believe them to be unfairly and unjustly  treated, in any case, no real effort has yet been made to ascertain what was the  real cause of the trouble and to do justice to all involved.  Friends, Yet Not Friends  At a recent mass meeting held to support the release of these men, statements  are alleged to have been made which make it impossible for many who sympathize  with them to' associate themselves with the movement.  Threats of personal violence against the Provincial Premier and his colleagues can only have one effect on the public mind, and that is to alienate support, and thus defeat the objects of the so-called friends of the men imprisoned.  There is no excuse for men inciting to violence, they only prove themselves the  enemies of those they pretend to befriend. In fact, it often occurs that such men  only seek to advance some pet theory.  The wording of the resolution was also unfortunate. It constitutes a threat  rather than a petition for justice. Many citizens in British Columbia would gladly see clemency exercised in this case, but it would be somewhat difficult to follow  the course pursued at the meeting in the Horseshow Building.  of Owo,Accdtiiiia  *&yy0&m  ������t-_*v>B  I). 1 HUES .IMPERATIVE  At^m.

The Industrial Commission, which reported in  J90J, thoroughly investigated the same question,  and conditions at the present day are substantially  unaltered. It was found then that (the farmer waa  receiving 55 per cent, of the consumer's price for  poultry; 69 per cent, for eggs when sold hy the  dozen; 55.6 per cent, for apples when sold hy the  bushel, and 66 per cent, when sold by the barrel.  In the case of oranges sold by the dosen he received only 20.3 per cent., when sold hy the box  he received 59.3 per cent 7-���������-��������� -=...  Considering prices from the consumer's point of  view the Commission found that the percentage  increase of consumer's price over the price paid  to the farmer was, for cabbages bought hy the  head, 135 per cent.; for oranges by tbe dosen, 400  per cent., by the crate, 100 per cent; for potatoes  bought by the bushel, 82 per cent.  In 1909, a special inquiry into the high price of  beef established the fact that the retail price was,  on an average for the United States, 38 per cent.  .above the wholesale price received by the great  slaughtering houses.  The general conclusion which the Secretary of  Agriculture drcr from the investigations was that  the consume1* appeared to have no real ground for  complaint against the farmer for the price he paid.  The cost of transport,-generally speaking, added  a percentage increase to the farmer's price that  was not large. The dealers had risks that were  practically small, except credit sales and such  risks as grew out of their trying to do an amount  of business that was small as compared with their  number. "The distribution of farm products," the  report says, "is considerably involved, and burdened with eosty features." It is indeed generally  admitted that there is much overlapping and waste  between the producer and the consumer.  1IRD00S MT KTDIPJ Tl T1EIIIIR C8UOTIT  That the Hindoos may return to their own  country is stated by Mr. Hugh Mather, special  correspondent of the Indian Government in this  city, after a meeting held in the Sikh Temple ou.  Saturday morning, as a result of the recent decision by Chief Justice Hunter in the Hindu immigration eases. A telegram was drafted at the  meeting to be sent to Mr. Borden acquainting him  with the determination of many of the Sikhs to  leave Canada. They also state that they believe  they cannot look to the Dominion (Jovernment for  fair treatment jn view of the Bhagwan Singh deportation. The Hindus say they will not let the  matter go so far ss to be excluded from this country, as such action would be looked upon as a  degradation in the eyes of their brethren in the  Punjab���������men who were loyal to the Empire  during the Indian Mutiny, and helped to save  that part of the country for Great Britain. ..THE WESTERN CALL.

The first of these resolutions was  moved by Mr. Maxwell Smith and  seconded by Mr. G. A. Odium, was  to the following effect: That the  Dominion and Provincial Governments should co-operate in legislation to prevent the granting of citizenship or property rights to any but  the white face, ^^  Mr. Smith said the secret Of the  whole situation lay in .-withholding  from the Oriental the fright to vote  or possees lands.

Moreover he considered the American negro as much  of a menace as all the other colored  races. He did not object to a man  because of the tinting of his skin,  but because he was against assimilating other colors. ���������  The second resolution was moved  by Mr. Charles Smith and seconded  by Mr. Lake and. embodied this  sentiment: In view of the recent decision of Chief Justice Hunter, and  to prevent the influx of Hindoes, we  respectfully solicit that legislation be  speedily granted tb exclude aU Asiatic immigration into Canada.  Mr. Charles Reid said that the  question should be regarded from the  economic rather than from a so-called  Christian standpoint and that a minimum wage should be established.  Several members spoke against a  too drastic legislative policy against  the Hindoo as such might bring  about international trouble.  Omndview Metlxxtist Church  Psstor��������� Rev. F. Q.

At a special meeting of the city  council on Friday afternoon, the  Billboard By-Law, re-drafted, after  many alterations, 'passed its final  reading, and will come into effect on  the second day of January. Certain  clauses, however, will not be enforced  until the expiration of a year, in order  to allow the billboard company, who  control all the signs in the city, time  to make the necessary alterations.  These clauses require signs in resi-  dental districts to be placed back in  line with the houses, with other pro-'  visors for corners and other built  up sections.  No discussion took place as to the  double-deckers, these receivingl the  sanction of a majority of the council  at a previous meeting. On single lots  between buildings coming to the property line, however, signs will be required to keep back three feet. A  motion to have them kept back five  feet was defeated, except as to corners in the built-up downtown section.  The billboard owners, Messrs. Duker  & Creighton, were again Represented  in the council chamber as at previous  meetings. Mr. Creighton protested  against any of the proposed changes.  "We haven't left any paper on the  streets, for the past few months," he  said, referring to the suggestion of  Mayor Baxter that if the signs were  not kept back, the sidewalk might  become littered with rubbish.  "Oh, you have been doing it fine���������  lately," replied the mayor, with a  smile.  Signs will be kept back to the line  of the residences in residental districts and at least fifteen feet from  the sidewalk in any event. This provision is intended as a remedy for the  obstructing of a view from a house by  reason of the lining of the street with  high signs such as on Main street  south, which was named as a glaring  'example. ���������.,"-.���������  Skysigns oh the roof of buildings  must be constructed hereafter : of  metal and be at least 60 per cent,  of open work. It was intended at  first to have all signs at present existing converted to the new standard, but so long as they are structurally safe to the; satisfaction of the  building inspector, they will be  allowed to remain.  Building Inspector Jarrett ex.  plained that in case of a combination  of circumstances, when the- roof  would be subjected to a severe strain  of snow, a high wind blowing against  a sign might wreck the. roof. Most  roofs, he said, were not built to stand  a combination of circumstances.  Cloth signs must go from the city  on the coming into effect of the bylaw on Jan. 2.. The month, explained  Aid. Hepburn, was given to allow  sign painters time to get their present  orders out of hand. Aid. McBeath  protested again about the hardship  thrown upon the smaller men who  work on cloth signs, while the larger  interests using billboards were allowed/leniency.  SOUTH ���������VANCOUVER  That the children of South- Vancouver are making good use of the  savings bank system established in  the schools and are acquiring useful habits is apparent from the  amount deposited during last month.  Twelve schools are making use' of the  system, and their joint deposit for  November equalled the sum of  $445.65.  Correspondence  Re Wood for AU Industries.  To the Editor of the Western Call:  Dear Sir���������  I read with interest your article under the above heading in last week's  issue. This is of particular interest  at this juncture, as a new B. C. wood  is about to be put on the market���������  to be called commercially, "B. C.  Satin Wood."  The wood is not dissimilar to a  wood of a similar name largely used  for furniture in Europe and also for  "finish" in good work where large  grain markings are not desirable.  It takes a high polish and may be  stained to any desired color to represent Rosewood, Mahogany, Walnut, or it would take a green.  I might say here that to the south  of us the Americans have already  commenced to use this wood for furniture manufacture.

The first weekly prayer meeting  was held in the new Knox church on  Wednesday at 8 p. m. They will continue at this hour on Wednesday of  every wek.'

The expenses amounted to  about $20.00 This leaves the round  sum of $160.00. The sum taken for  the autographs has. not been included, and will, when complete, bring  in a large" additional sum,, probably  approaching $200.00.

Rutledge addressed  the members of the West Collingwood Improvement Association on  the night of the 4th inst. Mr. C.  Bailey presided. Reeve Kerr gave  a' brief account of the work of the  council during the past year, making  special mention of the financial situation and the efforts of the council  to secure a permanent supply of  water. He also touched upon the  question of fire protection and stated  that there were on order two auto-  combination pieces of fire fighting  apparatus which would be delivered  shortly. One, he said, would be stationed on Kingsway, near Gladstone  road, for the protection of the Collingwood and Cedar Cottage districts  and  the  other  would  be  stationed  at the Municipal hall for the protection of the western section of the  municipality. These two auto-wagons with the installation of a fire  alarm system, the reeve said, would  give better fire protection" and should  result in reduced insurance rates.  The reeve also dealt with municipal  ownership of public utilities and industrial sites, and discussed the advantages of an incorporated city over  a municipality.  i . ���������    ��������� .-...���������  School Trustee Morris spoke chiefly on the advantages of incorporation.  He said he believed that incorporation would be an economic advantage  to South Vancouver and that Ward  One would be more likely to secure  permanent improvements within a  short time by incorporation than by  annexation to the city of Vancouver.  Trustee Morris pointed out that at  present South Vancouver ranked  with municipalities such as Summer-  land and Peachland, whSreas as an  incorporated city it would rank as  the third largest city in British Columbia, and that consequently its  position on the money market would  be vastly Improved. He said that  even if by incorporation the price of  its bonds was only raised one point  it would net to South Vancouver  $26,000. Hence he conseidered that  for an investment of $150, which was  about what incorporation would cost  the municipality, they stood a very  good chance of gaining at least $26,-  000 and probably much' more. Mr.  Morris expressed himself as favorable to the policy of municipally-  owned public utilities, which, he said,  would tend to reduce taxation.  Mr. W. R. Rutledge spoke on the  subjects of incorporation and municipally-owned utilities, and stated  that he was in favor of both propositions. He said he considered the  councils of the past had been very remiss in not going in for municipal  ownership before allowing others to  come in. He said municipal ownership was the only wajjr t������> reduce  taxes.; ��������� '..

H. Porter,  field, 1350 Tenth avenue West, took  place in the General hospital on the  evening of the 4th inst. at 6:30  o'clock, as a result of the injuries received by being struck by an automobile at the corner of Manitoba  street and Broadway. Mrs. Simmons,  58 Eighth avenue West, a sister of  the dead woman, is also in the hospital, but her injuries are not  thought to be serious.  The automobile was owned and  driven by Mr. H. J.

Littler, joint ^proprietor of 'the iron  works company, and Mr. James Mason, 3330 Third avenue West.  Mr. Littler describes the accident  thus: "I was driving west on Broadway about 5:30 p. m. I had stopped  in the rear of a B. C. E. R. Fairview  car at Quebec street to allow/ passengers to alight. At Ontario street,  the second street west of Main street,  I again stopped to allow other passengers to get off, one from the rear  and two women from the front of the  car. When the car again started I  had pulled up alongside in an endeavor to passu When about the  middle of the block I noticed two  women standing on the street apparently about a car's length from the  corner. I turned my car toward the  car tracks to avoid them and suddenly remembered that I could not  pass in front of the car. I applied  the emergency brakes and my, car  skidded. The rear part of my car  struck one woman; and the B. C. E.  R. car hit my machine about midway between the front and rear  wheels."  The, police ambulance was summoned and the two women taken to  the hospital, where Mrs. Porterfield  died about three-quarters of an hour  after her arrival. Deceased- leaves  a husband and young son, 10 years  bid. Mr. Porterfield is a blacksmith  in the employ of the Mainland Transfer Company. Mrs. Porterfield was  33 years old.

That- steps be taken to secure,  through co-operation of the press, in  the way of public education in these  vital themes.  A strong committee was appointed  to organize workers in each of the  eight wards of the city for aggressive  work.  .

December 12,1913  Si  n i  *_  ! ������_  THE TRIBE OF NAPHTMi  ! i. .��������� ''���������' ���������       ���������'���������."���������'��������� "*  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  In a recent issue of the Western Call t he Rev. Owen  Bulkley, A.K.C., treated the public to a most interesting article on "The Locality .of the Tribe of  Naphtali and of Others." I quite believe that  many of ~Naphtali as well as of the other tribes  of the "House of Israel" were scattered in North  Africa, including Morocco, and also in practically ,  all other countries. The prophets and even in the  days of Moses, the greatest pf the prophets, perhaps, announced that the Israelites, as well as the  House of Judah would be scattered amongst all  nations. Hence I am ready to believe that the  prophetic utterances were fulfilled to the letter.  -I am not sure whether Mr. Bulkley is of opinion  that Naphtali aa a tribe is to be found in Morocco, or not. From my studies on the subject I  am inclined to the belief that where Joseph is as  a House, there is Naphtali as a tribe officially.  This for many reasons, but especially because the  "Throne of Israel" must be somewhere at this  hour ruled over by a King descended from David.  Here is one of many verses that might be quoted  to support this view: "There shall not fail thee  a man in my sight to sit on the THRONE OF  ISRAEL. *' Now look at 2 Sam. 3-10,���������'' To translate the kingdom from the House of Saul, and to  set up the Throne of David OVER ISRAEL AND  OVER JUDAH, from Dan even to fieer-Sheba.,"  Jeremiah 33-17: "For thus saith the Lord;  David shall never want a man to sit upon the  THRONE OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL."  From this I would conclude that where David  is ruling, in his seed, oyer the House of Israel,  there must Joseph be prominently, and there  must he the rest of the Ten-Tribed House, if not  all the twelve tribes, in some very important  sense1. Jn any case, Naphtali must be officially  connected with Official Israel even though many  of his tribe may be in Morocco. Let us look at  the tribe of Naphtali for a moment as shown in  Scripture.     ^  About 940 B. C. Benhadad King of Syria "Sent  the captains of his armies against the cities of  Israel; and they smote Ijon, and Dan, and Abel-  maim, and all the store cities of Naphtali." See  2Chron. 16-4.  Perhaps this aet of Syria would result in a  very considerable scattering of a portion of the  tribe of Naphtali. This might happen, and still  moat of the tribe remain in their possessions.  See 1 Kings 15-20: "So Benhadad hearkened  unto the king, Asa, and sent the captains of the  hosts whieh he*had against the cities of Israel,  and emote Ijon, and Dan, and. Abel-beth-Maachah-  and all Cinneroth, with all the land of Naphtali."  ]9rom these two quotations we must conclude  , that Naphtali suffered much at the hands of the  , Syrians, and it would be natural' to infer many  A hastened to save themselves by leaving their country*   This would aurely account for tbe dispersion of tome of "Israel."  Sk999^1*W*% ���������. there waa another, and a more  severe raid upon Naphtali, and tbe results were  very far-reaching as the quotation will show. See  2 Kings 15-29: "In the days of Pekah, king of  Israel, came Tiglatb-Pileser, King of Assyria,  Ijon, .arid Abel-beth-Maachah, and Janoah, and  JSdesb, and Razor, and Gilead, and Galilee, .ALL  TUB fcANfc OF NAPHTALL and carried them  captive to Assyria.''  - This has its deep significance in that it shows  that Naphtali was carried into captivity into the  very country where the rest of Israel was carried  at later dates*���������about 741 B. C, and IM B. C.  Hence from the prophetic  Utterances  above  quoted, and from the historic account showing  that Naphtali went where the House of Israel  went, I would believe that, even though many of  Naphtali be found in North Africa, they are only  *a remnant. And the tribe in its official standing  must be with the House of Joseph, or what is the  same thing, with Ephraim. Otherwise the King  descended from David is ruling over only a part  of the throne of the "House of Israel." Perhaps  it would be better to say that, if Naphtali be absent from Joseph, then the Throne of the House  of Israel is not quite complete.  This brings me to a point of prime difference  with one of the ablest exponents of Anglo-Israel-  ism, The Rev. A. B. Grimaldi, M.A., who teaches  that the European countries^ are the tribal kingdoms of the Ten-Tribed House of Israel.  As I read both history and the prophets there  is only one throne of the HOUSE of ISRAEL,  and.that is in Britain, the Official Ephraim, the  hegemonic leader of all Israel in a national and  material sense.  J Mr. Bulkley, quoting from Sir John Drummond  Hay, and Dr. Robert Kerr, uses these worths: "So  from Halah and Habor all the Israelite tribe of  Naphtali, or the greater portion thereof, sought  refuge in Baden, a town situated on the limits of  Guinea (Ajnaua), that is the upper borders of the  Sahara, which town of Baden, at that time had  direct maritime communication with Halah and  Habor."  This seems to indicate that the two above authorities believe that all, or most of Naphtali went  away to North, or West Africa. If so, then I must  object. Andmy grounds for objection are above  given, in part.  Ofte of the troubles in the long quotation taken  from Hay and Kerr is that in one place the term  "All the Israelite tribe of Naphtali" is used and  then, in referring, I presume, to the same people,  the term sentence: "Thus were the Israelites  spread throughout the interior of Africa." The  exact- meaning in the minds of the two writers is  not made clear to the reader.  In the above remarks I do not dogmatically express my notions, nor do I say that the Rev. Mr.  Bulkley holds views different from my own. But  I have endeavored to make somewhat impressive  the notion that even if portions' of certain tribes  are found in Africa, or elsewhere, these would  only be' remnants or rifts; or droppings by the  way in the movements of the House of Israel,  which I believe must be under one sovereign, at  least officially.  And thia brings one to the teaching that the  United States is Manasseh. Again I must say that  I hold a modified view on this point. The  THRONE OF ISRAEL I believe is complete and  under the rule of Judah. And,yet it may be as,  in the days of Joshua and the Judges, Manfasseh  was first divided into two parts, so this tribe is  divided today. Perhaps the old, tribe division  typed the latter day division. Thus the United  States may4 correspond to one unit and hold the  .unit may be under the flag whieh is expressive of  ancient tribal flag of Manasseh, while the other  tbe UNION of the Houses of ISRAEL and  JUPAH*"''" ':VVV/:  I hope that the Reverend Owen Bulkley will be  so kind as to continue his writings on this and  kindred subjects,,for a time at least. His scholarship, painstaking care, and lucid manner in using  the pen make it a pleasure to read him on any  subject he gives his attention to in the press.  is mm.timmr  Many and   variousT-are;--.the-arguments put forward by the supporters  of Home Rule to try - and establish  the inequities of the Union Government, but    that    government which  states   that   Ireland   is   misgoverned  by England is the    most    unsound.  Great emphasis is laid upon the shortcomings of past English governments,  but little or nothing is said of the  wonderful benefits enjoyed by Ireland  as the result of legislation on her be-'  half by the  Union  Governments of  modern times.    It may be admitted  that  the   government  of  Ireland  in  earlier times was defective and left a  lot to he desired, but so also was the  government of  England.    These defects were not all entirely owing to  English   administration,   and  of   late  years  remedial  measures  have  been  passed    by    the    Union    Parliament  which   no    Irish    Parliament  could  possibly have undertaken.   Lecky, the  historian,   whose    fairness    and  un-  partiality are    beyond    dispute, describes  the   sad  condition  of  Ireland  after  eighteen  years  of  government  by an  independent  Irish  Parliament  (Grattan's) in Dublin.   He states how  its   agriculture,   its   implements,   the  sheep  and  cattle, the  farmers, were  in   a  poor  and  wretched  state,   and  that misgovernment and corruption,  political  agitation  and  political   conspiracy had done their work.  This was the state of affairs when  the "misgovernment" of Ireland under  the Union began. Mr. Joseph Devlin,  the Nationalist member, writing about  the middle of 1912. thus, (the figures  are his) describes the condition of  the country today. "Eleven years  ago the land of Ireland belonged to  less than 3.000 men. Today 250.000  Irish farmers own the soil they till. -  ... 3.000 (out of 3,500) evicted tenants .... had been brought back to  their own homes���������as owners���������paying  annuities to the government out of  what they formally paid in rent to  landlords. During the last ten years  they   had   torn   down   nearly   60.000  .wretched; cheerless, comfortless  houses, and had built as many labourers, cottages���������bright, healthy and  cheerful housing for nearly a quarter  of a million of the Irish population  . . a great national university . . .  large grants for primary schools and  more generous treatment for school .  teachers."  As Sir Edward Carson has well  said, "the figures in support of Ireland's present prosperity read like a  fairy tale." In 1890 the deposits in  the savings banks were ������5,725,000;  in 1911 they were ������15.000.000. The  deposits and balances in the joint  stock banks in 1890 were ������30.000,-  000 whilst in 1911 they were ������55.-  000,000.  The imports and exports told t:e  same story v   The amoufftA-ivanced for land par-  chase up to April, 1911, was nearly  ������70,000,000, whilst the amoun _ :i-  plied for, but not yet advanced, caunto nearly   ������48,000,000.  To quote Mr. Gill, the Nationalist  secretary of the Irish Department <-������_  Agriculture, Iceland was not o;i!y  a progressive nation, but, within her  own limits, amongst the most rapidly  progressive countries in the w rid."  And mark you, all this has been accomplished under thfe Union, backed  by the credit and money ol th;  Union Parliament. No country in  jthe world can boast of its material Interests being cared for and protected  as can that of "poor misgoverned"  Ireland. British credit has n.-vcr  ibeen spared but has been most generously given in order to enable ttie  tenant farmer to purchase his ho1 ���������'-  ings upon easier terms than any othei  farmer in the world.  The Department of Agricultuie provides him with the best seeds for his  crops and the best stallions for his  stock.  The Estates' Commissioners can extend his holdings until it is large  enough   to  support  him.  The  Congested    Districts    R->ard  spends thousands of pound- evety  year in. developing, industries in the  poorer parts of the country. All the  works/ are "entirely dependent upon  the Union Credit" for their success,  since Ireland could not possibly obtain funds for carrying them through  on her own credit. With the exception of these special advantage, the  Irish people are governed in exactly  the same way as the English people.  Their County Councils and local  bodies are elected in precicely the  same way as they are in England.  Their influence in the Common  Parliament is really greater than that  of the English or Scottish people,  since their representation is vastly  in excess of what they are entitled to  on a basis of population.  The only way in which the Irish  are misgoverned *is the fault of the  Executive and their own leaders.  Since in -1906 the protection of life  and property in Ireland which the law  secures to the people of England, has  not been what it should be. Mr.  justice Madden, at the assi-es in  Galway. 1911, "complained of the intimidation, by which witnesses wore  deterred from coming forward to  give information in aid of the administration of justice to safeguard- li'e  and property in the country. Until  the country was purged from this  poison by which it was now infecieo  the protection of all its inhabitants,  in the employment of the ...-dii-:i:y  rights of free citizens, by the detection and punishment of crime would  be impossible."  Not a year passes but the said list  of brutal and cowardly crimes is  added to. So long as order and tran  quility are not secured the charge of  misgovernment in Ireland may be  brought, but it cannot be laid to the  charge of the Union.  J. C. WRIGHT.

(From the News-Advertiser.)  , In an boor's address to West Point  Grey Conservative Association on  Monday night, Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.P.,  dwelt upon several questions of vital  interest to this city. On the Hindu  question he said:  "By means of the Order-in-Council  passed in Ottawa prohibiting the entrance of laborers through the ports of  this province until March 21 next the  government Is in a position to take  time to consider the question raised  by the recent legal judgment on the  Hindu immigration, jt wiir effectively  deal with the matter for the time  being and prevent any wholesale influx of Asiatics. The action was token  to protect British Columbia until such  time as a permanent and satisfactory  policy can be promulgated."  He dealt at some length with the  Asiatic question, advancing arguments  why such Immigration should be stopped from Industrial; hygienic, citizenship and other view-points. Canada  with its population of 8,000,000 was  confronted by the danger of being  overrun by a combined Asiatic population of 800,000,000. The lid shouid  be put on tight  Docks at Kitsilano  He had hoped that work would be  started in the construction of docks in  Kitsilano Reserve before this, but unforeseen difficulties had cropped up  and until these were settled the work  would be held back. There was sufficient land there for docks, railway terminals and industrial sites. Work  Vould be started on the government  dock in North Vancouver at an early  date aa well.  In regard to the proposal which had  been advanced in some quarters tt������*t  docks should bet constructed on tbe  Spanish Banks in front of point Grey,  the speaker said be was opposed to  the plan. For one thing* tbat site waa  too tar from tbe business centre bf tiie  city. He advocated tbat tbat part; of  Point Grey should be set aside for a  public parte.  He enumerated briefly some of tbe  important legislation of tbe present  government and referred to what' ft  was doln gfor tbe development of the  national ports, in connection with tbe  Improvement in Toronto harbor, it was  stipulated in the government estimates tbat tbe 35,000,000 feet of fir required should be British Columbia fir.  This was at Mr. Stevens' suggestion,  and tbere was a provision ln all the  contracts for public buildings here  that B. C. materials should,be used  whenever possible. Another Important work being carried on by tbe government through tbe grain commission  was the construction of grain elevators. Some ot tbem would be erected  in Greater Vancouver.,  He advocated the construction of a  railway from Vancouver to the Peace  River country to open up the great  hinterland of tbe province. There  was a proposal on foot in the States to  build a line from Alaska through British Columbia, but it was not in the  Interest of tbe province or this city  to assist In the construction of an  American road. Seattle had stolen a  march on Vancouver during the Klondike rush, but It must not be allowed  to do so again.  Narrows Bridge  In reply to a question from the audience, he de.alt with the Second Narrows bridge project. He was in favor  of the company going ahead with tbe  bridge at once. The bridge company  had bonding power of $750,060 which  was sufficient to complete the bridge  with the money already promised.  There was no necessity for selling  these bonds now. The work could be  started in the meantime. The bonds  would sell all right because they  would be practically first mortgage  bonds.

An Order-in-Council was passed by  the Cabinet today prohibiting until  March 31, the entry to British Columbia of all artisans and laborers..  The order Is general in its application and is not restricted to, any particular race or people coming from any  particular country.        ";���������'..  Officially the reason set fbr the government's action is the present congested condition of labor on the Pacific Coast; however, what has brought  the matter to a head is the Hindu  question arising out of tbe judgment  of Chief Justice Hunter of British, Columbia, declaring ln the effect tbat the  restrictions heretofore imposed by the  government,, in respect to immigrants  of this class are untenable and not  constitutionally operative.  Situation 8srlous.  This opene.d the door with an influx  of Hindus.* The government realized  that the situation was serious as there  was nothing to prevent whole shiploads of Hindus from entering. British  Columbia, precipitating possibly an  Imperial crisis.  The government decided tp avail it*  self of section 38, which gives wide  and drastic powers. In excluding, immigrants and the. present Order-in-  Council was passed.  The government has been careful In  dealing with the situation not to discriminate against race or.nation. This  order consequently is madegeneral In  its application and effects, for instance,  the, United States as niuch as any  other country, aa immigration via  border ports into British Columbia is  also prohibited.  Temporary Expedient  "The present ls a temporary expedient called forth by tbe exceptional  conditions prevailing on the, Pacific  Coast and ita tenure is only until tbe  end of March. In the meantime an  endeavor will be made to work out a  permanent solution of this vexatious  problem.  Tbe matter will be taken np with  tbe Imperial authorities as. in addition to tbe relation of tbe Hindus, who  are British subject*, must be considered tbe 'fact that Japan and Great  Britain bave a treaty.  Tbe order will effectually atop any  possible influx for the present snd at  tbe same time furnish the government  witb tbe necessary time tor consideration of tbe whole question, wbicb admittedly is now tree from difficulties.  Wording of Order.  Tbe Order-in-Council is couched in  the following terms':  "H. R. H. tbe Governor-General-in*  Council, under and in virtue of the  provisions of subsection 3 of section  38 ot tbe Immigration Act 9-10 Edward VII, and in view ot the present  overcrowded conditions o the labor  market In British Columbia, is pleased  to make tbe following order: 'From  and after tbe date hereof and until after the Slat day of March, 1914, the  landing of any port of entry in British Columbia herein after specified of  any immigrant of any Pf the following classes or occupations, namely, artisans, laborers (skilled or unskilled)  shall be, and the same is hereby prohibited^"  The order then specifies all. of the  ports of entry ln British Columbia as  coming under Its terms���������News-Advertiser.
