tumultuou.s se.'^sion tonight re-nomin- 
ated William H. Taft of Ohio for 
president, and James S. Sherman of 
New York for vice-president. Presi- 
dent Taft received ritli of tho 1,078 
votes In the •.■on\-enti<in, m -^y vunve 
than a majority. 

The decision of the Roosevelt people 
under the direction of their leader, to 
refrain from voting, left no other can- 
didate near the president. 

The announcement of the Tafi \ic- 
tory was greeted with cheering from 
his adherents and groans and hisses 
from the opposition. When ii beeome 
absolutely certain early today that .\Jr. 
Taft would be nominated without 
Sreat ditru.ull.v, the le.iders in control 
of the convention decided to give him 
as a running mate his companion on 
the ticket in lUiis. j\i| others 
dropped from the race and Mr. Sher- 
man was the only^ Candida te regularly 
placed before the convention, A mo- 
tion from Xew Hampshire to make the 
nomination by acclamation w.is de- 
clared out of order. There were many 
scattering votes on the roll call tlint 
ensued. The convention amid much 
confusion adjourned sine die. 

At no time whk there any indiia- 
tion of a walkout of the Roosevelt 
delegates. They expressed their revolt 
by silence. 

In the confusion just before ad- 
journment a resolution was adopted 
griving the national committee power 
to declare vacant the scat of any man 
on the committee, refusing to support 
the nominees of the regular conven- 
tion of 191?. Sherman's vote was 507. 
A conflict in the Oklahoma delegation 
over the selection of national commit- 
teemen was referred with power to' 
act to the new national committee.

Former President Roosevelt was 
nominated tonight for president on an 
independent ticket in the dying hours 
of the Republican national convention 
in which he inet dtfeat. The follow- 
ers of Colonel Roosevelt met In Orches- 
tra hall, le&s than a mile 'from the 
Coliseum, and pledged their support to 
the former president. In accepting the 
nomination >Ir. Roosevelt appeal(»i to 
the people of all sections, regardless of 
party afflliations, to stand with the 
founders of the naw pa.xty, one of 
whose cardinal principles, he said, was 
to be "Thou shall not steal." 

The Informal nomination of Colonel 
Roosevelt was said to be chiefly for 
the purpose of affecting a temporary 
organization, beginning tor.iurruw 
when a call is to be issued for a state 
convention in Illinois. The work of 
organization will be pushed forward 
rapidly, state by state. At a later time

The plan for the British Columbia 
building to be erected in London has 
Just been received by Proraier Sir 
Richard McBride, and it is proposed to 
have it submitted to the meeting of 
the executive to be called during the 
current A'cek. Shortly thereafter. In 
the event of the plan pro%Mng satis- 
factory, work will ba commenced on 
the structure that will In time to come 
ssrve to perennially advertise this 
pro\-lnce In the world's metropolis and 
n.t tho same time fittingly represent 
the provincial dignity of British Col- 
umbia among the other great edifices 
iliat (It present, or will in the future, 
adorn the architectural features of the 
centre of the empira. 

.Sir Richard yesterday tooVc occasion 
to express hia gratification that within 
a very short time British Columbia 
would cut a still larger figure In the 
fstiuiate of the old land. While lie 
d.id not feel inclined at the moment tn 
discuss the luiMue and description of 
the plan of the building, lie vouch- 
.'lafpd the information that when com- 
pleted the structure would be an orna- 
ment ever; to London. As all British 
Columbians know, .Sir Richard has had 
this project in mind for a long time, 
and now that it Is within «lght of 
realization, he feel.s a per.Monal as well 
as a j>rnvincia! [.leasure in the achieve- 
ment. 

"It i.'j a good thing," he said, for 
British Columbia to have such a buHd- 
ing in the heart of the empire. When 
It Is built no one can pass the spot 
without thinking for a moment of this 
distant section of the empire, and that 
thought, brief and fleeting aa It may 
be, will bring its ret^om.pense to this 
pro\ince. Other colonies ha\e taken 
thla step and I sec no reason why any- 
one of them should be ahead of British 
Columbia. To have the plan mature at 
this particular time when the province 
is looming large on the Imperial hor- 
izon, is a ver.\ luipiiy coincidence. It 
will stamp British Columbia upon tne 
imperial mind as scarcely anything 
else could do, and for that reason alone 
if for no other — and there are many 
others that might be quoted — it should 
l>e hailed by l^ritlsh Columbians with 
delight. That It will bo »o I have not 
the smallest doubt, for I have every 
rcitson to believe that tlie people of 
this country are aa one in regard to 
hnptrial status, however radically they 
may differ In point of domestic gov- 
orninent." 

The new British Columbia building 
will occupy a site in proximity to that 
occupied by the building of Victoria, 
Australasia.

rebels are said to have lost 25 killed 
and a dumber wounded. " No federal

OfftOlal despatches from Durango 
report a battle near .^an Pedro early 
today, in which seven rebels were 
killed an4 many wounded and the fe-

NANAIMO. June 22.— The bursting 
of a steam pipe today In the Union 
Brewery resulted in the instant death 
of Albert Randle, mechanic for the 
y.^Miipany an<l serious injuries to J. M^'- 
'ksp, engineer. In the operation of tho 
lofal plant two boilers are used to ^cn- 
erate steam. It Mas found necessary 
on I'>lclay to make repairs to one of 
the boilers and In consequence the 
fires -were drawn, the brrfler being suf- 
ficiently cooled this morning to allow 
of repairs being inade. McRae was in 
the act of repairing a flange, Randlo 
assisting, when an expansion joint on 
tho live boiler gave way, the full head 
of stoam striking Ritndle In the head 
and iKfdy, cooking the flesh to the 
bone and causing Instant death. 

How McRae esoaped with his life Is 
a miracle. Between the top of the 
hollers on which the men were work- 
ing and the roof of the engine room Is 
only a few feet of space, which, when 
the pipe burst was immediately filled 
with scalding steam. The force of tho 
discharge missed McRae, he being tiut 
sli.ghtl.v scalded, but a piece of flying 
pipe struck him on the head, inflicting 
a deep s<:aip wound. JSlcRae made his 
escape by a rear window, dropping to 
the ground a distance of fifteeU feet. 

Workmen about the Brewe-ry made 
several desperate attempts to reach 
Randle, but were each time driven 
back by the scalding steam, and it was 
not before the boiler room had been 
cleared that tho body was recovered. 

The deceased was a native of Nan- 
aimo, and was one of the bc.it known 
residents in the city. He was ass»jci- 
ated with his brother Arthur in the 
hardware and plumbing business up to 
five years ago, when he accepted the 
position of mechanic for the Union 
Brewing (''ompany, which position he 
occupied at the time of his death. He 
Is sur\ived by a widow, four brothers, 
Joseph, AN'illiam, Arthur and Oliver, of 
•Nanaimo, and six sisters, Mrs. Thomas 
.Morgan, Vancouver Mrs. Akenhead, 
.Mrs. .M. Rra.\-, Mrs. D. Stephenson and 
the .Ml^sses Emily and Elizabeth Ran- 
dle, of this city.

Banquet to Hon. O. E. Poster 

LONDON, June 22. — The West India 
committee will entertain Hon. George 
E. Foster at a banquet on July 4. 
Bonar I..aw will attend. 



VANeQl*^fe?, yJune ' 'iZ—Another — . 
and much more determined effort — Is 
being .^made by the committee which 
has the welfare of the Egeria as a 
training ship in hand to raise funds 
for that purpose and to Impress upon 
the public the advantages of training 
the boys In this way. This time the 
Vancouver branch of the Navy League, 
under whose auspices the Egeria was 
brought and devoted to Its present 
I purpose, is sending an appeal and 
statement to every branch of the Navy 
League In the province and to ttie 
municipal school boards suggesting a 
Joint a]>peal to the provincial govern- 
ment. 

T'lio circular explains itself and con- 
tains a good deal of information. 
There are three boys — all local — 
training on board now. One of these 
has been on board ever since tho 
Egeria came here, find 'has turned out 
so well that Captain Eddie is eatls- 
fied that he could do work aboard any 
ship that a youth or man of two and 
a. half years' expei-ience would tackle. 

The Vancouver brvinch of the Navy 
League begs to mil the attention of 
tho various branches in the provinee 
to the above e.hlp and to the purposes 
to which It desires she should be put. 
Thu Yttiicouver branch Is strongly of 
the opinion that the training of la^n 
to become good seamen Is; not' |i.,i:lot?ui 
affair, hut common to the whole pro- 
vince; in ."hort, should be a definite 
and well recognized part of its toch- 
nicnl training, and, as such, be made a 
fundamental psrt of our educational 
system. Further, Inasmuch as the lads 
may como from any or every p.art of 
the province and the various school 
boards of the several districts from 
which they will be gathered should 
pay for their education at the same 
rate per head aS" If educated In the 
local school, It will hardly be advisable 
that the training ship should be given 
In charge of any one »school board; but 
should he made a special branch of the 
edueatloniil system and carried out by 
a special authority selected for Its fit- 
ness for the work. 

Bavy Xisatfua Snparvlalon 

At present the Navy League, as 
represented by its . mIous branches 
in the province seems lO. be the only 
organization which has t'le requisita 
fitness for the purpose. The, Vancouv- 
er branch, therefore, thinks .'t advis- 
able that the various branches in tne 
province should present a joint peti- 
tion to the provincial government, the; 
various municipal school boards 
throughout the province, and also to 
the Dominion government asking: 

1. That technlcAl education in sea- 
manship be made a part of the provin- 
cial educational system, 

2. That the Egeria shall be th? flfot 
training ship used for the purpose. 

3. That the training and control of 
the ship should be assigned to the pro- 
vincial navy league. 

4. Tliat the provincial government 
should pay as Its quota towards the 
cost of the training the same sum per 
head as the cost In the public schools. 

5. That the municipal school board's 
should do the same, each paying for 
the number of lads taken from its " 
school district 

6. That the Dominion governtnent 
be asked to give a yearly subsidy of a 
similar amount.

Of the Utmost 
Importance

that he would b-.' willinpr to step a.-slde 
if It should be thp desire of the new 
party, when organized, to choose an- 
other standard bearer. . In thanklnR 
his deleKatPf for the nomination .Vlr, 
Riiosevelt said: 

A Froirr««Bivs Candidate 

"Oenflemen: I thank you for your 
nomination and in yon I recognize the 
lawfully elected delegates to the Re- 
publican National Convention who re- 
present the overwhelming majority of 
the viiters who took part In the Re- 
publican primaries prior to the con- 
vention and who represent the wish of 
the nuijorlty of the lawfuly elected 
members of the convention. I accept 
the nomination subject to hut one con- 
dition. I feel the time has come when 
not only all men who believe In pro- 
gressixe iirlnciples hut nil men who be- 
lieve In those elementary maxims of 
public and private morality which un- 
derlie every form of Buccessful govcrn- 
nient, should join In one movement- 
Thereforr I ask yoii to go to your sev- 
eral homes to tind out the sentiment of 
the people nt home and then again to 
come together, I suggest by mass con- 
vention to nominate for the president, 
a progressive candidate under a pro- 
gressive platrorni, a candidate and a 
platform that will enable, us to appeal 
to the northerner, southern, easterner 
and westerner, Republican and Demo- 
crat alike. In the name of our confl:r£n 
American cltUenahlp. If you wish mo 
to make the f1»ht I will make it even 
If only one state should support me. 
The iwily condition 1 impose \0 that 
you shall be entirely free wh^ Vou 



come together to substitute any other 
man in my place if you deem it better 
for the movemont and In such case 1 
will plve him my heartiest .support. 
Attack oa "Tlie Boises" 

"Wherever In any state the Republi- 
can psirty is true to the princii)lcs of 
It.s founders and l.s genuinely the [larty 
of justice and of progres.s, I expect to 
see it come bodily into the new move- 
ment, for the convention that has just 
sat in this city is in no proper sense 
of the word a Republican convention 
at -all. It does not represent the 
masses of the Republican party. It 
was organized in cynical defiance of 
their wishes and it has served the 
inirpose only of a group of sinlMer po- 
litical bosses who have not one shadow 
of sympathy with the spirit and pur- 
pose of the Republican party of 50 
year.s ago, and many of whom have 
used the part.\- merely as an adjunct 
to money-making, either for them- 
selves or for the great cooked finan- 
cial interests which serve them. 

"Vou, my friends, are here before me, 
in the spirit of .\braham Lincoln when 
he refused longer to be bound by the 
shackles of the past and faced the new 
Issues In the new spirit that the times 
demanded, but we are more fortunate 
in one respect than ouri pre^lccessors, 
for we, who now stand^ fur the pro- 
gressive cause, the i)rogtrefisive move- 
ment, have done for ever with all sec- 
tionalism and we make our apuculs 
eriually to the men who fought under 
Grant and to the son's of the m.-n wbo 
fought under Lee, for the cause wo 
champion is as emphatically the cause 
of the south as it Is the north. 
Thou Shalt Not Stsal 

"1 am in this tight lor certain prin- 
ciples and the lirst and most impor- 
tant of these goes back to Sinai and 
is embodied In the commandments 
"Thou Shalt not steal a nomination," 
"Thou Shalt neither steal in politics 
nor in business," "Thou shalt not steal 
from the people the birthright of the 
I)eople to rule themselves." I hold in 
the language of the Kentucky court of 
Hpjieals that "Stealing Is stealing." 
Delegates' Sesolntion 

The following re>'oluli"m was ptis.sed 
by the Roosevelt delegates; 

"We, the delegates and alternates to 
the Republican National Convention 
representing a clear in.tjority of the 
voters of the Rei>ublican party in the 
nation and representing a clear ma- 
jority of delegates and alternates, le- 
gally elected to the convention in 
meeting assembled, make the follow- 
ing de<;laratlon: 

"We were delegated by a majority of 
Repulilican voters of our respective 
districts and states to nominate Theo- 
dore Roosevelt In the Republican na- 
tional convention as the candidate of 
our party for president and thereby 
carry out the will of the voters as ex- 
pressed at the i)rlmnrle8. We have 
earnestly and conscientiously striven 
to execute the commission entrusted to 
us by party voters. 

"For five days we have been denied 
Justice In the national convention. 
This result has been accompHsJied by 
the action of the now defunct national 
committee In placing upon the parlia- 
mentary roll of the convention, and 
thereby seating on the floor of the 
'convention, a sufficient number of 
fradulently elected delegates to control 
the proceedings of the convention. 
These fradulant delegates, once seated, 
have by concerted action with one an- 
other, put themselvbs upon the perma- 
nent roll where they constitute an In- 
fluence sufficient to control the conven- 
tion and defeat the will of the party 
as expressed at the primaries. We have 
exhausted every known means to hold 
oft this conspiracy and ta prevent this 
fraud upon the popular will, but with- 
out success." ^__

To Eliminate Hard Work 

Use a gas range, and you will livclietter, you will play better, 
and you will work better, because the use of the gas range ; 
eliminates the drudgery of carrying coal, ashes and the chop- i 
ping of kindling, as well as the drudgery of cleaning up a lot 
of dirt, and, best of all for the cook, it makes it unnecessary 
for her to stand over a hot stove for two or three hours a day.

TOME NORTH 



Sir Richard McBride, Accom- 
panied by Attorney General 
Bowser to Make Extended^. 
Trip to New Cities 



Durias the month of July Sir Richard 
McBride pfoposea to visit tba northern 
cltlea of the province, taking in Prince 
Hupert. Stewart and Uazelton, aa wall 
aa a number p( the minor plao«a en 
route. He will be accompanied by the 
Hob. Mr. Bowser, attorney-g-eneral, and 
It is exp&cted that the trip will extend 
over several weeks, as it Is understood 
that In various pluces on the Itinerary 
there are important provincial intereatH 
to be discussed with the municipal re- 
prosontativ'es. 

So far no, definite date has been fixed 
for starting out, but from a conversa- 
tion which a Colonist representative 
had with the Premier yeslerdai', It may 
be stated that the party will leave the 
Capital on or about the 20th of July. 
Prince Ruport will. In all piuwdljliUy. be 
the first, port of call, and it is expected 
that a short stay In the CJ. T. P. ter- 
minal will be reijulred in order to dis- 
cus.s and adjust certain questions af- 
fecting the relationship of the provin- 
cial and municipal interests. 

From Prince Kupert the party will doubt- 
l»i»» j.r«>r«i»«l tip the Itno ar Tar il« pijuslbl-;' 
111 order lo reach Hazelton, whore It ia 
Ktated that the Premier's visit has ticen 
anticipated for some time past. It may bo 
that before going up the Hue to Haseltou 
tha party will take In Btewarl by Bleaiiior 
and dlapoie of certain matters that haTn 
accumulated for consideration there, but 
however the itinerary may be mapped out 
these are the three principal point* en 
route, a^id while many halts will be callr^il 
on the way to Inspect works of all kiiiiis 
the business interest of the trip will centre 
In the trio Oif places named. 

or course time will also be taken to in- 
spect the condition of the country and 
gauge the ratio of development In aettllng, 
lumbering and agriculture. It is soma con- 
slderablo time since Sir Richard McBrlde 
and his colleague made a tour of the north, 
and in the Interval tremendous chanKtvs 
have taken place. Sir Richard Is prepared 
for these, and he proml.ses that their ob- 
servance will not be lost upon him In rela- 
tion to his development policy. 

The opening up of this great country, 
which has long been a droara of the 
premier's, is now an accomplished fact, 
possessed of still greater potentiality, and 
when he returns again to the capital he

the urtanlraous endorsation of his plans. 

Prior to making this Important trip Sir 
Richard is due at Calgary on the 29th Inst, 
to open the groat show which l.s being held 
there, and on Dominion Day ho will turn 
the first BOd of the Pacific Great Eastern 



line. 



HA'NDS'OME CHURCH 

HAS BEEN PLANNED 

Tit»x OoBcrerational Members -will 

Bttortly Meet to Take AoUon on 

nana of Axohitaote 



In the handsome edifice which it is 
proposed to erect at the corner of Qua- 
dra street and Mason street the first 
Congregational church will have a new 
home which architectually will 
rank with any other church structu?e 
in the city. Tentative plans have been 
prepared, the cut reproduced this morn- 
ing showing the Quadra street eleva- 
'tlon of tile proposed building. A meet- 
ing: of the members and adherents of 
the church will be held next Thursday 
evening at 8 o'clock, when the Dulld- 
Ing committee will aubmlt a further 
report, which, it is hoped, will be acted 
upon. 

The plans for the new edifice, drawn 
by Messrs. Breeseman & Durfee, arch- 
tects, call for a type of architecture 
known as the Georgian and Colonial 
with some adaptations, being an ex- 
pression of the best ideas of Congrega- 
tional church architecture. The front 
elevation is somewhat similar to that 
of Emmanuel Congregational church, 
Montreal; the First Church, Vancouver; 
the City Temple, london, England and 
Plymouth church, Seattle. 

In that the new structure will afford 
ample provision for all the institutions 
or societies in connectlari with the 
church •work, and give plenty room for 
expansion. It may be more or less aptly 
styled an Institutronal- ohurch. While"* 
every attention has been paid by the 
architects to the ohurch quarters pro- 
per much consideration h«is been to the 
neces-sltles of the Sunday Mchobl, and 
associated societies ,the adtrlt. BUble 
class room for women, mCn'jr owH 
room, gymnasium for Boy Seoute and 
Girl Guides and other organizattons. 
women's work there will be T>roVlded 
a ladles' parlor and. church parlor, and 
modertf kitchen ariufti«ementB will' be 
Installed, affording- a<9equate provision 
for banquets, entertaininenta, etc. With 
such an edifice there will be a splen- 
did opportunity afforded for meeting 
the demands for more practical and 
real church work.

Mr. Talt is ilie accredited nomliice 
of the rtepublican party for the coming 
presidential election in the United 
States but from the present outlook his 
chances of success do not seem very 
bright. The Republican party appear.^ 
to be In a state of disruption and uii- 
leas better counsels prevail and Mr. 
Roosevelt can be prevented from call- 
ing a convention of his own and secur- 
ing a nomination as a candidate there Is 
every indication that the next occupant 
of the ■W'hite House will he a Democrat. 
ICven supposing Mr. Roosevelt does not 
run the results of the primaries in so 
many states go far to .show that the 
president 'hau largely ln.it wliatever grip 
he had on the popular Imagination. 
IjOOked at from every standpoint the 
Democratic chance* of success never

, Mr. Taft ha* gained a wideapread 
notoriety in this country during recent 
months by the disclosure of his corres-

He will always be remembered as the 
president who wished to make ^Canada 
an adjunct of the United States. Not 
that any unfriendly feelings are enter-

Because Mr. Borden and his ministers

at Ottawa, and promised to take sym-

connection, the project has lost favor 
In the eyes of the evening paper pub- 
lished 11; tiiis '•it>-. Supposing fof a 
moment, a supposition which w'e do not 
entertain, that after investigation the 
Ottawa authorities .slioul.l iheiil. that 
the time is not ripe to undertake a na- 
tional scheme of sticii magnitude there 
Is not a shadow of doubt that our 
contemporary would immediately en- 
deavor to make political capital of such 
a decision. That !« the policy is has 
pursued in the past. Xo subject Is too 
small, or too great, for It to embrace 
In the dragnet of its vain political 
Imaginings, in the hope that the people 
of the city are as circumscribed, in 
their viewpoint as It is itself. It is a 
regrettublft incUlent m the life of tlio 
conTmunity, but fortunately, only an in- 
cident, for the days have passed away 
when trifles as light as these are re- 
garded. Our prosperity has become 
so great, our progress f-o tapid, tili at 
even on enemy within our Kates 
is a purely negligible quantity. 
When the obpect of that 

enemy is knciwn to be to seek every 
occasion and every loophole to bring 
discredit upon the Federal and British 
Columbia government.'s lt.'< antagonism 
til those I'rojei ts and undertakings 
which are making the country great 
only serves to bring into relief a policy 
of political partisanship of such a type 
as fortimately is utterly unknown in 
any other part of the Dominion,

branches ^brou^hout British Columbia

sure they will receive the hearty aup- 

pull of both the government and the 

public. 

One motor car for every fifty-five 
residents of Victoria la not a bad re- 
cord of wealth. We doubt if It can be 
equalled In any other city in the 
world. 



Mr. Ralph Smith, one of the defeated 
Liberals in the recent election 
in British Colu|nbla, has gone to 
Saskatchewan to as.^lst Premier Scott. 
Mr. Smith was too keen an advocate of 
free trade to suit the people of Utis 
province as a member and it will be In- 
teresting to learn what Impression he 
makes In the prairie constituencies. 

Japan is to appoint a commission to 
adjudicate upon the claims of those 
sealers who have l>e<'n deprived of their 
ir.dustry by the recent International 
treaty. Already that nation has set 
aside a sum of ?560,000 lo pi ovlde com- 
pensation. Canada* is also considering 
tbo advisability of appointing a com- 
mlasion along similar lines, and the 
move woiUd be a very popular one, not 
only among the s'calers interested, but 
among Victoria generally.

which has the approval of many who 
are Interested in tiic subject and it 
nilght well be given effect to by an 
admiralty warrant. The writer points 
out that tile i-e..-ent official announce- 
ment about the flag of Canada was 
somewhat brief in form but its effect 
is merely to emphasize the fart that 
the red eheign — whether with or with- 
out the Canadian arms — is a sea flag 
and therefore should not be offliially 
■hoisted on public buildings'. The Union 
Jack with a red fly would be the red 
ensign. He contend.s that while tlie 
proper official flag on land Is the 
trniou Jack there Is no good reason why 
the ordinary citizen should not use thu 
plain re.] ensign, or the red <:anadian 
ensign for decoi-ative purposes on his 
private dwelling.

With regard to your remarks as to 
changing the present so-oalled Canad- 
ian ensign, on which the arms of all 
the provinces have never, as far as I 
have seen, been correctly depicted, I 
am heartily In accord. Th« design In 
Itself is a poor one, being complicated 
and aomcwhat difficult to reproduce 
on bunting, and not easily distinguish- 
able at any great distance. I should 
think that it would be an easy mat- 
ter to select a very much simpler and 
more effective design, such as that of 
the Maple Leaf, as auggested In your 
article.

that will be! And some of them not 
even pickletl at the ground line! What 
about French-polishing them with the 
good old-fasliioned rag and shellac? If 
there la too much money In hand just 
now. wouldn't It be a better Idea to 
spend it on the roads. Even tl'.ose 
roads that ere to be paved shortly'.' 
I'ut a few gangs on to level them up 
a bit, temporarily. At present many 
of the local thoroughfares are far 
inferior to th- country roads. They

AUTOCRAT 



LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 



L 



A CAXrADZAK NAVAX. BESEBVE 

The effort of the Vancouxer braifh 
of the Navy I.,e.agiie to raise funds fur 
training boy.s aboarti the fcigeria, the 
vessel purchased from the Admiralty 
some time aigo, is a highly commend- 
able one. We hope that the local 
branch of the league will c3o all It tran 
til assist In the matter. The idea of 
training youth rf>r it seafaring life, and 
])r(>Humal)ly for a life In the navy, will 
supplement tho work being done 'by 
II. M. f. .S. Rainbow on this coast. Tho 
time will come when this branch of 
naval training will ha\-e to be con- 
siderably expanded on tho coast, and 
any offoi^; looking to that time is 
worthy of the support of all those who 
have their country's welfare at heart. 
It is possible that the government of 
British ('oiumbia tvlll see Its way to 
assist the efforts of the Vancouver 
Iciigue, although It seems to u» thai 
it Is more a matter for Federal co- 
iipe.ratlon. Akl of sonic sort .should be 
forthcoming, for the organization which 
was public !»T)lritpd enoiisrh to purchase 
the Egeria cannot be expoctetl lo carry 
on the work single-handed. 

This Idea of preparing: the youth of 
the province for naval careers suggests 
that Interest might be arou8e<l in a pro- 
posal to create a na.val reserve on tn* 
coast. We believe that were the project 
once to take form hundreds of the men 
now employed on vessels In the coast- 
wise trade wntild be willing to join. 
Such orK&nizatlon could be baaed on the 
lines of th« Royal Naval Reserve in 
the Old I.And, and we b«1leve that there 
are those on this coaat who bcilonc to 
this line of defence who would be both 
competent and wUHnK 'to assist In the 
formation. It would be a vHtimble ad- 
Juaet to the Canadian n^Val poJtoy «f 
the future. an4 wottM iwte' * imuK of

Captain Cook 

' Sir, — Any controversy as to the 
extent of the explorations of this 
great navigtition In iheae regions, may be 
HOttlixl by reference to the volume 
which I have pleasure in lending to The 
Colonist for a aohi-t while. This was 
vrltteit iinmodiatcly after the conclus- 
ion of the last expedition of the cir- 
cumnavigation, and contains numerous 
steel engravings, some espoiMally relat- 
ing to thl.s Island, which together with 
the descriptions of the natives are in- 
tensely interesting. t>n the frontispiece 
of this huge tome is a portrait of Cap- 
tain Cook himself stirrounded by allc- 
gorlcul tlgures. There has Just recently 
been crectec, a bronze statate of C.;ook, 
in my native place, Whitby, Yorke. a 
cut of whicli I enclose. It was from 
Whitby that Cook first went to sea; 
tl-.ore several' of his ships were built; 
and at Staithes, 2 miles awa.v still ex- 
ists the little draper's shop (drygoods 
store), wliich Cook ran away from, to 
Hind a berth in a ship sailing out Of 
Whitby. 

On tlie next lilll to Itoseheriy Top- 
ping: T' highest hill i' all Vorksher; 
stands a stone obelisk erected to the 
memory of Cook, at the foot of the bill 
reposts his native vllla.ge with not an- 
fither bouse added, or any altered, as 
far as can be observed since that lad 
Cook left It. 

Tn Grace Lane, Whitby, remain a sub- 
stantial brick bouse with a tablet let 
Into the wail stating that Cook niade 
his liome there between voyages. 

In the Hawaiian Islands I saw a copy 
of the welt-known pleture of his as- 
sassination in the museum at Honolulu, 
a similar picture Is hung on the walls 
place a day's sail from Honolulu. And 
there Is a .small monument at his death 
place a days' sail from Honolulu. And 
a beautiful statue at Sydney, Australia, 
but this letter was not Intended for a 
biography; only to settle the question 
as to what part Cook look in the dis- 
covery of the regions In which we now 
live. Reference to this volume should 
be authoritative.

Th* Oanadiaa Jtlmg 

.Sir. — Allow me to point out that I 
think you are In error when you state 
In youi- editorial of the 22nd Inst, that 
the only flag which a Canadian has a 
right. When on land, to display Is the 
Union .lack with a red "fly." If you 
will refer 'to your own files you will 
sec in the issue of the 8th inst., where 
you set out the despatch from the 
secretary of state for the colonies to 
H. B. H. thu Duke of Connaught, that 
It is therein stated "that the united 
flag Is the national flag of Canada 
and of all the other parts of his 
majesty's dominions, and may be 
flown on land by all British aubjects, 
and that the red ensign with the arms 
of the Dominion of C?anada In the fljf 
Is intended to be used only by Canad- 
ian merchant vessels." 

The "united flag" Is none other thait 
the Union Jack without any fljr, the 
same flag that w« all know and love 
so well, and which files froiu all our 
government buildings. 

Some years ago a similar qu«atton 
was rataed in the old ^toinun, ami 
lAtrA Crewe, the home seoraiary ""-Ift 
that time. U I remember a«(j(h^

" — There dtvelt tor a few ■n-frkn late- 
ly in London one of the most remark- 
able of the true Empire builders of our 
time. Doubtless ho passed through 
many scenes unknown and unnoticed; 
and that, to him, niust have been an 
experience as welcome as it was novel. 
For it is quite unlike hia ordinary ex- 
periences in his own country. Thar?, 
for every moment of every day, he has 
rows of people standing outside his 
door, eager to win his ear, to ex'cli|e. 
Ills interest, or even to have the pleas- 
ure of shaking him by the hand and 
of exchanging a few words with him. 
In pas.slng outside his office throitgh 
the .-streets of his city, there is not a 
man, woman or child that docs not 
recognize him, few who do not greet 
htm with a word, none who do not give 
him a kindly sinile as he passes. Many 
of them, simple as well as gentle, ad- 
dress him es "Dick." and. In turn, he 
."iddresscs the most of.^ them by their 
Christian names. No man ever had in 
greater degree that terrible gift of fa- 
iiilllarlty wlilch so exasperated the 
father of the great Mlrabeati; no man 
was ever so endowed by nature ■ with 
those gifts of kindliness. simplicity, 
good fellowship, which are ain'>ng the 
chief requirements of the ruler of one 
of those great young communities, 
inonarchlal to the heart's core so far 
as the old mother country Is con- 
cerned, but within their own sphere and 
towards their own public men demo- 
cratic to a degree undreamt of even 
In the- philosophy of countries that call 
themselves r e p u I) 1 1 c B : 

Vet, though his name and personal- 
ity might he strange, this dweller for 
brief space within our gates could n^t 
appear anywhere without attrii/'tliig 
some attention. He looked what he 
I was: the born ruler <if men. Very tall 
I and at the same time very robust, with 
the great shoulders of an athlete, the 
I strong, firm walk of a giant In good 
] form, he looks the man who could 
I shoulder his way through any erowd 
' however dense or however -strong. Hi' 
I is the embodiment of mas-^ive phjsical 
j slfciigth and inflexible will. The head 
and face are a worthy culmination to 
the splendid figure. The face is round 
and somewliat short — the face of one 
whose blood Is mainly Celtic. The Jaw 
lias the strength of the strong man of 
action, of the lighter, of the man who 
knows no fear. The mouth Is, curi- 
ously enough, small and dellieale; but 
again firmness Is its chief Indication, 
The brow is high and broad, and the 
eyes, liright. blue, piercing, and vigi- 
lant, reveal the man who has to look 
Into the depths of myriads of human 
souls and IlAid out whether gold or mud 
are at their unfathomed depths. And 
then comes a massive head of hair — 
thick, curly, but as white aa snow. 
Therein h" bear.s some resemblance to 
that other great Canadian of whom 
he has been the personal friend and 
the political opponent all his life: for 
the massive white mane of Sir Wilfrid 
liaurler has become historic In Canada, 
and by his enthusiastic friends used 
to be compared to that oriflamme of 
the French king whtch always led the 
way In battle and always rallied the 
J''rencb soldier to courage and to vic- 
tory. Shrewdness. kindliness. good 
nature and yet vigilance, keen instinct. 
Indulgent but thoroughgoing Instinct- 
ive knowledge of human nature, end 
above all, Inflexible will; these are the 
different qualities of the Inner man 
that are expressed in his physique. Mr. 
AVtnston Churchill, once addressing a 
meeting In his honor, said of him that 
"high destines" were written on bis 
face, and that is a true as well as elo- 
<iuent expresHlon of what this man 
suggests even at a cursor.v glance. 

Such Is "Dick" McBrlde. I call him 
"Dick," for nobody ever calls him any- 
thing else. It Is one of the many signs 
of the extraordinary hold he has on ills 
people; It is symptomatic of the eilirlt 
of the community he rules. Ot that 
community he Is the child In every 
sense of the word. His parents Were 
among tlie many who left Ireland to 
find a freer and more prosperous home 
In the. New World. And In the clroum- 
stanees of his parentage, as In so many 
things In hie prosperous life, fortune 
•mited upon him, for It was a mixed 
parentAge both as to race and creed; 
and this accbunta largely for th4 alu- 
gular comMnatlon of qualttlea that has 
mitde him ao >deal a ruler for a young 
and tfelneoratls community. Hla, tlftther'

up for bimgetr.lM^^ilMpHPQt ocriee^ Hr 
which In primltlf^ <||lo|(ununitlfa, men 
have to open thelii' slruggle for exist- 
ence. ;But h« was not left long to 
study briefs: hi^ liatural gifts as a 
political man asserted themselves early. 
Before he was thirty, be waa a cabi- 
net minister, and ha soon made it quite 
clear that he was a nuin so strong, «o 
fearless, so astute, that he had to be 
counted with: A ministry brought In 
a railway bill, giving a big concession; 
he, with a small group of members 
fought the bill all through a session, 
not to be bullied, or tired, or oajoled 
Into surrender. 

Then, having felt his feet, he fought 
for a new principle In official and po- 
litical life in his native province. The 
ministerial and opposition parties were 
then settled on the simple and good old 
system of the "Ins" and the "outs;" 
Mr. McBrlde resolved that party gov- 
ernment v/a.s the cure for the sordid 
and mean personal motives which in- 
fluenced political contests so primor- 
dial, and lighting his way through 
tremendous obstacles and over-power- 
ful interests, h« estahllshed a party 
government, and soon he was himself 
at the head of a ministry. He wa.* 
prime minister at thirty-two — the 
youngest prime minister in the British 
Knjplre. 

It was a daziillng eminence; but also 
a perilous one. The pi'ovlnce was not 
in a healthy ((jnditlon; its finances 
v/ere suspect; and when the young 
prime minister went to the banks for 
hacking, the cautious manager had po- 
litely to refuse hint their aid. Here, 
then was a strange and paradoxical 
problem. Nobody could doubt that the 
province had gigantic and varied re- 
sources; time only was required to 
make the world and the province Itself 
rfcal iza-- i t.s i in m<-ai» arable pot.eiitia.U.U.aii. 
Population had to be attracted, and 
that is not au easy task. When you 
get to British Columbia you reach one 
of the fairest and most attractive lands 
in the world. Do you want scenery of 
the same appalling magnificence .as 
that of tho Zermatt region ot Switzer- 
land? You find It almost immediately 
after you enter its borders. Do you 
tvant fertile land bearing the most 
beautiful fruit In' the world? It Is lo 
be found in the famous Okanagan Val- 
ley. Are you a mining prospector? 
Vou can ramble through British Co- 
lumbia with the certainty that in, time 
you win reach gold or copper, or some 
other of tlie metals for which the world 
is calling out. 

These form the material attractions 
of British .Ooluinbia: but If you seek 
for other things, for a lovely and 
healthy climate, for scenery soft, or 
spots that nesUe under the glgantii; 
moimtalns. and bring vigor and the joy 
of life back again: these also you can 
. find, they come to yoti without the ask- 
ing. And. finally, you get to the Pa- 
cific, spread before you, one of the love- 
liest sheets of waters the world can 
show. Around and about it are grow- 
ing those gigantic buildings, those 
migthy wharves, those docks that are 
attracted by a great world centre and 
depot, and the tall funnels or the 
spreading sails of ships from every 
land are crowded In by the water aide. 
.\ city whose growth Is like a tale 
from the "Arabian .VIghts," In its aud- 
denness and its opulence, has grown 
up around the tnagnlfieent depot. Van- 
couver, one of the marvels of the world 
has increased in a few years by fifty 
per cent, of its population; and here, 
at the end of the world, you find a 
city as modern as If It were in the 
heart of London; with plots of land — 
nay. with square feet — selling at prices 
8U<'h as sometimes equal those that* 
ten centuries of civllizalinn and of the 
central and supreme position as capital 
of the world of commerce and finance 
have given to the core of London. 

Then take the steam.er and you reach 
In a few hours the Island of Vancou- 
ver. Never shall I forget the Impres- 
sion made upon me when first I caught 
sight of the city of Victoria. There 
are some scenes whicii. by their over- 
powering beauty, make .vou forget ev- 
erything: that give you something 6f 
the ecstacy of an opium eater's dream: 
and the first sight of Victoria is one 
of these. Imagine Venice, and combine 
witli that something of the truly Brit- 
ish air of Brighton, and it will give 
you a faint Idea of what Victoria Is 
like. And when you get there you find 
something of the same combination of 
impressions. Victoria is the political 
capital of British Columbia, and to 
make assurance doubly sure and to pre- 
vent any attempt to transfer the cap- 
ital to the mainland, Victoria has build- 
ings palatial enough to adorn the me- 
tropolis of an empire; a noble parlia- 
ment house; In it and around it minis- 
terial buildlngB; a flne museum, and 
around It. ground's that have all the 
softness of an Knglish garden and all 
the spaciousness of a city like Wash- 
ington. The atmosphere has more sun 
than ours, and the sun, glldhtg the 
water which semy everywhere, gives a 
sense of surpaaslrtg beauty. There is 
in even this warm atmosphere a nilght 
tang of that Invigorating cold that 
adds so much to the health-giving 
properties of the climate of our own 
Brighton. Like Brightt/n. too. Victoria 
has Its fine esplanades; Its perfect 
pavements: all the signs of an old- 
world and not a new city of the Far 
West. And the population is English 
to the core. It Is English, too, large- 
ly of our own sea-side resorts; the 
well-to-do and the tired, who, having 
won in life's bsttle. desire tar spend 
their closing days In a perfect and a 
tranqutllsing climate; the middle class 
parents, who desire to live In one of 
the cheapest 'and beat educational cen- 
tres of the world: the retired admrial 
or genet^l, who desires to live under 
the BrUlfh flag. In thoroughly British 
surroundings, with th|! Inspiration of a 
new. young and thriving country su- 
peradded. 

All these things, I aay, you find in 
British Columbia; but you have te <o

vetween Eaatem m^' freetern Canada: 
Reglna and Bdniotlton and Calgary- 
all beg you to reniiUn with them and 
not go farther. And thus it is that 
population has been, and still is, the 
great want of British Columbia. 

But all these difficult rpoblems were 
faced by Mr. McBrlde with that extra- 
ordinary courage which is one of his 
greatest qualities. He Ignored tbo 
banks and the financiers, went straight 
on with his work, and soon the people 
ot British Celiimbla realized that at 
last there Wits at the bead of (be gov- 
ernment a man native, to the soil, 
knowing all Us conditions; and bring- 
ing to its problems exhaustless energy 
and proud local patriotism. Progress 
began to be made, not slowly, but rap- 
Idly, until in the end It caihe to be felt 
that all the safety and advance of the 
province wre bound up with his per- 
sonality. And thus there came to «pass 
in British Columbia what has hap- 
pened in other countries and times — 
that all the politics of the country were 
bound with one single powerful and 
popular personelitj'. 

A position like this iiiJiy Ue niiiikly 
won and as quickly lost. -.'Ut that haa^. 
not been the experience of Mr. Mc- 
Brlde. There have been three general 
elections since he became prime minis- 
ter for the first time: and eacii suc- 
ceeding election has only Increased his 
power. 

Britisij Columbia has only one bouse 
of legislature; It consists of forty-two 
members. In the last legislature thir- 
ty-nine were supporters of Mr. Mc- 
Uride; In the present legislature the 
three members of the opposition have 
been reduced to two; the supporters of 
the prime minister and of his policy 
thils number forty out of the entire 
jncmbcrship of forty-two. 

Thl&- oxtrao r dinary — domlnanre haifl 



not been won by mere force of char- 
eter: an instinctive adroitness. tact 
and good sense liave been among the 
contributory causes. Take, for In- 
stance, his treatment of what even in 
British Columbia is a not infrequent 
occurrence — namely, labor unrest. La- 
bor unrest is serious in any country — 
but It Is most serious in countries 
where the prospect of the quick return 
of mining drwws the strong and adven- 
turoiis and sometimes unruly men of all 
nationalities. British Columbia is full 
of great mining tamps: and thus tin- 
prime rnini.>»ter ha.s had to deal, more 
than gnce, with situations tliat. begin- 
ning in a dispute about wages or liours 
of labor, or a conflict lutween union 
and non-union, might easily have de- 
veloped into bloodshed. And blood- 
shed there would have been if the con- 
flict between element.s ho stubborn and 
so resolute as the miners on the one 
side and the mine-owners on the other 
had not all to be submitted o the cold, 
clear Judgment of the ruiere of the 
country. 

For such a momentous position the 
very contradictions of Mr McBride's 
political philosophy made him Ideal. 
He and his friends are called Conser- 
vatives in Canada; but the same names 
mean different things in different 
countries. What are the <party lines 
that divide men in Canada and In all 
provinces? Free Trade and Protection 
is one great dividing line. And yet 
that would not be an entirely accurate 
or exhaustive description for the Lib- 
erals, though their leanings are to- 
wards Free Trade, have not In recent 
years ever adopted an entirely Free 
Trade policy; they have been moderate 
i'rotectlonlsts, but Protectionists all 
the same. Again, there Is a certain 
slight, but very slight, difefrence in 
point of view on the supreme question 
of Imperialism. Every Canadian lib- 
eral would claim, and. Justly claim 
that he is a lo/al and convinced friend 
of the Mother Country and of the Em- 
pire; and he would argue that closer 
trade relations betwen Canada and the 
United States would not in the least 
prejudice that feeling. The Conserva- 
tive holds strongly that Canada Is 
strong enough -to be self-sufficing, and 
that comtncrclal bonds between their 
country and the United .States might 
soon develop Into closer political bonds 
and thereby bring America and Can- 
ada nearer and Canada and England 
farther apart. And as everybody 
knows, this was practically the issue 
which decided the last Canadian elec- 
tion m favor of the Conservatives and 
against the Liberals. 

On the other hand, lit such matters 
as divide ua in domestic politics in 
England, It is hard to see where the 
Canadian Liberal and the Canadian 
Tory differ; if they differ, it is not 
on our lines. Every Canadian Con- 
servative would be, in our domestic 
questions, more In sympathy with the 
Liberal — perhaps even with the Radi- 
cal — than with the Conservative, They 
are — men of both parties alike — demo- 
crats; and on such questions as the 
franchise, the relations betwen Eng- 
land and Ireland, and taxation, the 
tlonservatlve would be on the side of 
the Liberals. 

The future development of British 
Columbia must go on at even a more 
rapid rate than even its present enor- 
motie advance. In a,, couple of years 
from now ti^ie Panama Canal will he 
open to the commerce of the world, 
and all Uie westernn coast on the Pa- 
cific must receive an immense im- 
petus from this extraordinary new de- 
velopment of ocean traffic. The 
thoughts of Mr. McBrlde have been de- 
voted for some years tdwards prepar- 
ation for this moroentoue revolution. 
He went to the oouhtry a few months 
ago; atvd tilte clilef plank In bis plat- 
form was the construction of railways 
to the enormous amouirt of twenty 
million sterling, and the result I l«ve 
already told — a legislature of forty 
supporters and two opponenta. Apart 
from this extraordinary polHIoel trl-o 
umirti. there waa tl^>«ven greater 9er-

Laurler and be luxve always been warm 
personal friends, though equally ardent 
political opponents. A couple of years 
before the last general election Sir 
Wilfrid went on a tour to the West of 
the great Dotninlon, and everywhere 
he had a triumphant rece<ption. In 
some provinces he found political 
friends In office and power; 

In Saskatchewan Mr. Waller Scott, tho 
premier. Is a Liberal; In Alberta the 
of ice is held by Mr, Slfton, also a Lib- 
eral; but In British Columbia there 
was Mr. McBrlde, the stout Conserva- 
tive in power. And yet It was at Vic- 
toria 'that Sir Wilfrid received the 
most enthusiastic and the mojit aump- 
tuous reception. Great arches spanned 
the streets, the government buildings 
were decorated, the townspeople were 
all out for a holiday and there stood 
-Mr, McBrlde, to receive him with the 
welcome of an honored guest. It was 
a sublime stroke; It showed at once 
genero.slty and s.hrewdnesB — the gen- 
erosity of a naturally warm Irish 
heart and the shewdness of a keen 
politician who turned what might have 
heen a campaign against to one in fa- 
vor of 'lilmself and his policy. 

Finally, e few statistic* to show 
what progress British Columbia has 
made In tho ten years of Mr. McBride's 
rule: 

The net revenue has grown from 
?2,044,000 In 1902-8 to 110,500,000 in 
1910-11. Whereas tho province waa in 
debt In 1903, the •public accounts 
showed at the close of the last flscal 
year a balance of ^i.Rno.ooo nvnr . all 
liabilities, and by reason of the sur- 
pluses which of late years have been 
the invariable result, the estimated 
expendlturjBs for the present flscal 
year are more than |16,000,QOO. 

f ho population, too. has grown In 
ten years more than U3 per cent,, and; 
it s II n o w , 40 ,0 80 , ' ' ' ' ' ii — I "' . ^' i r; ., M .,.i. „' i,. r 



The flgures are the most eloquent 
testimony to a wise and popular rule, 
Mr. McBrlde has often been asked to 
transfer hIp energies, his gifts and hiM 
magnetlarti to Ottawa; he could have 
bad a cabinet office In the new Con- 
servative government: but he has pre- 
ferred to remain in hl,^ native prov- 
ince until his work has there been 
done. T. P.

For over 100 years all Pianos had wooden frames until 
John Broadwood & Sons in 1808 proposed iron bars to re- 
sist the tension of the strings. Following this they produced 
the wonderful STEEL EARLESS FRAME, which we should 
be pleased to demonstrate to you. 

When we state that Chopin's favorite piano was a 
BROADWOOD, perhaps nothing further need be said as to 
its exclusive merits.

Iffffimx V^Qmer 



At a mass meeting of prominent Vic- 
toria busineMs men, which will be held 
tomorrow morning iit 11 o'clock at the 
board of trade rooms, the move having 
for its objact the jseiurlng for this city 
of a theatre at least the equal of any on 
the Pacific coast will be brought to a 
focus. 

Sir Rlehitrd .MoBride, 'When approach- 
ed, entered enthuslastifHlly Into the 
spirit of those who have been chiefly 
concerned In tlie project, and who have 
reported that there is but a, small sum 
yet needed to. make the attainment of 
their goal assured. The premier has ex- 
pressed his earnest desire to see this 
worthy cause bl-ought to a successful 
issue, and Is placing himself in the van 
ot the body of leading citizens who have 
detrmlned that Victoria shall have an 
opera house in keeping -(v ' best of 
local public buildings, ail': ivance- 

ment of Westarn Caiiadn's most favor- 
ed pleasure spot, ,iS» will attend, Mon- 
day's n»eeting»t6 tak« part lDi'.tlie,dfB- 
cusdion, and to s^l*t In eve^;;,w«y^UI' 
bis power. "■^' ■'■►^ ■ '■■ ^-il'-..^' ' V '' 

— T » mr» w>o the nowj p pjToytipUqft ' Ming tn 
every respect the finest In' the'' west, a 
committee of some twelve of those in* 
terested are to make a trip thrnugh the 
large cities on 'the coast i i r from 

their theatres-Hn the mo.st nioiitiri ideas 
which will be Incorporated in the new 
house. The architects, Messrs.' Rtich- 
fort and Sankey, will bfe of the party, no 
as to have the benefit of getting first 
hand all the leading features described 
by their principals. 

As appeared in The Colonist yester- 
day, the arrangements for the financing 
of this undertaking are In the able 
hands of Mr. Simon Leiser, to whose 
untiring energy and zeal Victoria owes 
much for having brought matters to 
such a promisThg state. Mr. Leiser has 
been -working in conjunction with Mr. 
D. O. Rochfort, of the Stewart Land 
Co., flpcal agents for the Opera House 
Co. 

The STsTr Th.9atre 

A description^ of tlie theatre which it 
is proposed to erect follows: 
" The new Victoria opera house will be 
one of the few theatres built upon the 
Pacific coast, in which the type of de- 
coration follows any particular period 
of design, and a.s the French Renais- 
sance is a style wliich lends itself most 
gracefully to the conventional ornament 
of tlie drama itself this Is the style 
wOilch will bi adopted. The beitiiff'il 
sinuous curves of tlie acanthus leaf, 
the graceful looping of fcHtoon and gar- 
lands, tile- conventional mi}.sk.?i of com- 
edy anil tragedy; in fact al the orna- 
ment of this exouisite style will be har- 
moniously grouped and subdued in color 
tone to make a rich, warm, invitlBg in- 
terior, wherein the pleasures of the per- 
formance ^-tU divide with the satisfac- 
tion of observing the thoroughly-in- 
keeping opera house. 

The theatre proper will be entered 
through a marble lobby, elliptical in plan, 
with ticket office and manager'.s oCi'ice 
situated at the right hand side of the 
entrance, .ml a flower sftore and candy 
store at the left. Passing through the 
lobby, one eiiters the foyer, which will 

.yPass at the hear, and have four entrances 
to, the pit. From the foyer access is 
gained to the balcony by an Incline of 
such low grade that Sj»^» t>jj^l scarcely 

' realize they have risen a matter of fif- 
teen feet. Tills incline will land one on 
a double width aisle which bisects tlie 
balcony, and which is provided with a 
generous exit-way to the street On either 
Hide of the building; exits are alijo pro- 
vided on both sides of the building at 
the lowest point of the balcony and at 
the rear of the .<<vcond tl<>r of lioxes. 
Thoroaglily Fireproof 
-From till' pit thf're «-ill be .six omiT- 
gency exits he.side.<! the entrance door.s, 
three in niimbfir. The gpH<»ry Is reached 
by a flight of stcp.s so arranged that 
seven step.'? only will be used between 
landings, making the" ascent as easy as 
possible. The gallery will be providod 
with two emergency exits on each side, 
so that tho entire theatre could be 
cleared tn one minute of ey*ry occupant. 
There will be a four-stor'^y ai)artment 
liouse at one skle of the theatre; this 
building will be provided with seven 
aparlments on each floor, and each 
apartment will hav« separate bath and 
kltclien. Tile apartment will be entirely 
cut off from the noise of the theatre 
by heavy brick walls, and a light shaft, 
which makes it a separate building, but 
still access for fire exits will be gained 
at every storey of the apartment build- 
ing at tho level of the theatre from 
which tho exit comes, eo that persons 
uiilng these exits will have two solid 
brick walls Interposed between them 
and any danger which might be in tha 
theatre. 

Beneath the poitlon of the building 
covered by tho apartments will be 
placed four stores and a buffet; access 
may be had to the buffet through the 
gentlemen's smoking room, which Is sit- 
uated on the ground storey. A ladles' 
retiring room will be provided half way 
up the balcony incline, and available 
from either balcony or pit. In addition 
to the features mentioned above. It is 
the Intention ot the manA^ement to re- 
vive the "green room," once so popular 
In all theatrss on the continent, and 
provl.ilon ha.8 been made for this time- 
honored Institution. 

Thfl basement beneath the aptxtment 
building Is to be arranged for a strlotly 
after-the-theatre supper reataurbnl of 
the highest order, and beneath the ap- 
proaches of the theatre a well-propor- 
tioned billiard room or hall will ue 
provided.

temperature on. the very hotest day

rigging loft, spot bridge, smoke ven- 
tllttor, sprinkling system, paint bridge

Hsad of Cara. 

Like all gruwlng i.ltleB, Victoria U 
gall.i-tInK Its ixpiuilolioii from many 
aoun-ess. So far tlieru ure connuira- 
tlvoly f<w foreigners. I'eoyle have 
come unil are comlns from country 
placOH and vlUuMes in other provinces 
of i.'anada, from iiic United States and 
from KiiKlund an»l Scotland. There 

may be Irish i)eople but the number is 
nut very noticeable, at least of 
those from the sioutli. l''rom other 
parts of the ISmplre good tlniea liuvo 
attracted many realdents. There la a 
proportion of the city people who come 
from Winnipeg and oLlier centres. Most 
old \'lclorlun.s know that conditions 
liavc changed mHrvf-llmisly within the 
past few years. The remark that one 
used to know almost every one met on 
the street in an afternoon is still made, 
though less frcciucntly. \Vu are grow- 
Inc accustomed to the sltht of atrango 
faces and unfamiliar figurea. 

But have women, whether old-timers 
or new-comers really realized, as they 
should, that Victoria is a modern city? 
In many ways we all act as though we 
atllt looked upon it as a little town. In 
nothlngr la this more apparent than in 
the freedom that mothers allow young 
e:lrlB. N9 one goes throufrh the streets 
In the evenings who does not see girls 
l>etween the ages of fourteen »hd seven- 
teen walking to and fro, ridihg on tlie 
streat cars and going to places of 
anjuseitient, unattended by their fathers 
or brothers and unaccompanied , by 
mothers or older sisters. They are 
allowed to choose their own compan- 
ions and form their own aequolntancea. 
Th e »Uk k n t m t h a f » h e m at t er la t hat 
this Is not safe. Mothers cannot too 
soon realize that they must carefully 
guard their children, and. especially 
their daughters, from the temptations 
^thftt" are insepaTame^froBS-eity Ufe m 
our time. 

They must, of course, be taught, to 
take care of themselves, to behave 
modestly and discreetly. But too much 
reBponslblllty should not 'be placea on 
their young shoulders, There Is no 
reason why girls should be In tbe city 
often after ' business hours, when they 
huvu homes of their bwn^ We; ai-e 
well-toHlo people.* Our girls and boys 
all know how to read.' Many of them 
have some knowledere of mu^lc. Their 
liame.i should afford them their chief 
pleasures. if any great attraction, 
whether indoors or outi tempts them 
fj'Om' home they slioiild bo proiierly pro- 
tected. But with friends, books, music 
and games as well as lessons and 
womanly occupations, there s.hould be 
little temptations for young |rirls to 
frequent public plaices,, , ■ ■ ' ;y 

No mother Who' has a daiightier 
ought to allow either her worjt, her 
cares, her pleasures or any public duty 
to induce her to neglect her God-given 
trust. Strangers tell u« that Victoria 
Is remaritable atnons cities for the 
number of young girls who spend their 
evenings on the streets. Kvcrj- mother 
can do something' to lesson this danger. 
If her own daughters stay at home or 
If she has none, she can make her 
home a place where innocent happiness 
and pleasant occupations may be en- 
joyed. Tile craving for excitement is 
not always utihealthy and it should be 
satisfied. This is a problem which 
Victoria mothers mu«t solve If tJ(P 
future generation of women are to be 
■worthy of thcrti and of their city. 

Komeiesa Olrls. 

In stores, in places of business and 
In industrial estublialunents there is a 
rapidly growing number of young wo- 
men whose homes are not in yictprla. 
The grciiter number of these lire ex- 
perienced wornen. They ore heads of 
departments, foreWonien or occupy 
place* of responsibility in various ca- 
jiacitles. Sucli. women are usually 
ladies whose Uearllig and* manner call 
forth edmiratlon and imitation from 
those under tihelr care. Jso one need 
Lave any concerii about women In such 
positions. They can command isood 
siilarlfs anywhere and need not remain 
unless their environment suits tiiom. 
But with those there are younger wo- 
men and girls who have been tempted 
to the west by reports of . high wages. 
Home of them are not qualified for the 
duties they exjiected to undertake. .VI- 
most all ure Inexperienced and need 
'firotcction. Thoy find that If wages 
are good expenses are high. The pro- 
blem of where to live confronts tucni. 

Willie men have no difficulty in .se- 
curing rooms in desirable localities If 
they desire them these girls find il 
hard to obtain suitable boarding hou.ses. 
In this respect Victoria is by no means 
.singular. In every oily on the continent 
large and small where women work 
Bluiiliir cLUHlitioiis prevail. It lius 
been found neeen.sary to build board- 
ing ho\).seH on purpose for giri.s. Sonic 
of thct;e are built by private enler- 
pri«e, but, gonenilly, they are due to 
phllanll.rophy. Kind-hearted women 

recogtil/e the needs of IhPHc little sla- 
ters, and have provided homes where 
girls may have, not only good board 
and lodginK. but Ruitable eotn- 
panion.ship, and elevating and refining 
plea.«iures. Miss .Jane Addams, in 

Chicago. Mrs. VnnderblU .-ind Mrs. 
Ilus.scU Sa<?e, In New York, are among 
Ibe women who have set an example In 
this respect. In (^"aiiodlan and many 
American cttlcs many have combined 
to do wliar such wealthy women, have, 
done alone. 

The Young \Vnmen,s ('hrlstian Asso- 
ciation ha.s helped and so b.Tve patriotic, 
and l.mmigratlon societies. In our 
own city the Y. W. C. A. Is no far nlone 
in the field. Itn members are about 
to extend their wori< which ha.s quite 
outgrown its accommodation. In this 
they should have the suriport of all 
good citizens. Apart, however, from 
ouch provision, there in much that pri- 
vate citljiena can do to make these 
girls' Vvcs happier. Mothers whose 
daughters work with the *t':»ingerB can 
by oppnlng their homes to them do a 
great kindne-^s. Other women who are 
brought Into contact with them, wlieth- 
er Bodally or In rollgious organisations, 
can. If they will, very often prevent 
lon«lln*«8 and the temptations which 
accompany It. But all the advances 
to be sticceaaful must be the reault of 
sincere goodwill. There 1« work to do 
do In tr.la direction for all who havw 
the time; the Inclination and tbe abili- 
ty tp dp It, *

Ifaat Canadian women Icnow that 
many Itusslan ladles ai'e l^'autlful and 
churming. The despattdieH have told 
us from time to time that anarchism 
iiau htpread among them and that Uicy 
ure ready to die for what they believe 
to be the cause of liberty. But it will 
surprise many readera to see that In 
Industrial, bu.slncss and official i-ui)u- 
cltles women aru employed In Uussia 
on the aume. terma as men. 
. Thi.i u» well as their statullng In the 
univcrsltlos and in ilio prui'eBbiuiis, is 
xhowjj i;i the following article: 

I'erliaps In no other country in 
ICuropu luis women's conipelHlon with 
man in professiunul, official commer- 
cial and general business avocalioiis 
been more progressive than In llussLt-' 
during the last couple of decades. 

This ehangi- in woman's status Is 
chiefly noticeable In the great provlj,- 
clal centres. in this city women con- 
stitute a fair, majority of the i)08taj, 
telegraphic and telephone staffs, and 
In nono of these services are there.' any 
sex exemptions or pi'lvl leges. The 
women take their nightly turna of ac- 
tive duty with their male (.olleague.s 
with whom they ure equally eliyilili- 
for promotion in all grade.s. The cler- 
1' al staffs on tile southern state ratl- 
way.s are largely feminine, and here 
and there one finds a woman atation- 
matster. , .■■;:,- ' ,■:■!,.' 

M. Rukhloff, the minlsfcl^r o|-*^yii 
and communications, is skid to be con- 
sidering the advisability of appointing 
women chief cdndjictorjir: titi passenger 
and ■■ expreaa. ;tn|lBa,; tot the avowed 
reason that: they ave mdra trustworthy, 
consclentloiiia arid polite than male 
conductors, and are never. HUe the lat- 
ten tempted into insobriety. Nearly 
orte-thlrd of the statfs In coinmorclal 
kousaa. . official departments, bankL

are In t>artioular denuuid as cashiers 
and for other positions of trust. 

Tb» Odessa faculty now Includes 
some sixty lady doctors and s urgeon- 
den tlstsT There are 400 girl etudents 
attending the ladles' higher courses, all 
of whom are free auditors of the uni- 
versity lectures^ and most of them are 
candidates for one or another of the 
learned professions. 

This change In the position of wo- 
men in Russia ^ Is the result of the 
high-class education received In the 
ladies* lycecs and senior gymnasia. But 
it Is only In thp two^^iapUals and -the 
chief provlnclaf cehtres that the wo- 
men •'Intelllgents," as they are de- 
scribed, have made such striking pro- 
gress. It is an old popular soyiug 
that among the Poles the women are 
the more clever and Intellectual of the 
two sexes, and their Russo-Slav cou- 
sins heed merely an enlarged poililca!

VANCOUVER. June 22.^— The cham- 
pions "came back" today, and, with 

ford ptchlng^ effective ball belilnd aome 
hard hitting, they grabbed both games 
from Victoria and jumped back into 
third place, xjnly two and a half games 
behind the leaders. Big week-end 
crowds witnessed both games, and, af- 
ter the showing of the past week, they 
^puTI'ed hard for the, Beevers, and liacT 
the satisfaction of seeing theip humble 
Mr. Meek's company both in the after- 
noon, and twilight battles. 

It was an uphill fight all through 
the afternoon contest. Victoria outhit 
the champions, and their blows gave 
them an early lead, but the Beavers 
recovered their batting eyes about the 
fourth Inning and pulled even. The 
Bees forged ahead again in the sixth, 
but Frisk's bat connected with one of 
McCreary's shoots in the sixth when 
the bases were loaded, and three runs 
came over, while Frisk reached third. 
It was the break in the game, and af- 
ter that Victoria dropped out of the 
running, while the champions increased 
their totel, finally winding up in the 
long end of a 10-6 score. 

Belfocd was a puzzle to Victoria 
batters in the evening game, and Van- 
couver won easily -by a score of 8-0.

VANCOUVlEiR, June S2— By again de- 
feating the Fairview team yesterday at 
Recreation park by the jcore of 15 to 
1. V. A. C. decisively proved their 
superiority. It was a picnic for the 
^apn Clip holders. They. romped around 
the "HIU" team and soo'rad practically 
whenever they pleased. I'-lerhellar, 
Crookall and Peacock worked like "de- 
nions, and time after time carried tlie 
opposing defence uT their feet. Crook- 
all's puzzling underhand shots and Fier- 
neuara clos(^-ln drives completely baf- 
fled the Fairview players. Paynter, 
Burns and McCualg were like a stone 
wall on the V. A C, defence, and only 
once or twice, did the Fairview for- 
wards effect a breach. Then Jake Davis 
was right on the job. 

.Y. -A.- .C^JicU«tl - itiur .-goM4«-4o— Fa4r- 
vlew's one In the iHrst quarter. Murray 
opened up the score sheets by a beauti- 
ful close-in shot after 2 minutes 30 
seconds of play. Half a minute later 
Fairview eveni-d up after some rapid 
passing, Godfrey turning the trick. 
Campbell was ruled off for striking at 
a V. A. C. man and while he was on 
the bench the Greenshirts got anothe.-. 
Peacock and Crookall added a goal 
apiece before the quarter ended. Crook- 
all found the nets on a clear under- 
hand shot. 

The second quarter opened with a 
smart attack on the Fairview goal. Mc- 
Donald stopped a fast one from Crook- 
all, but Davis sent in another hot one, 
scoring in 5 minutes. Fairview tried 
hard after the face-off. but Paynter 
and Burns cleared well, and a long. at- 
tack on the Fairview nets ended wifh 
Fierhellar scoring. Ritchie was ruled off 
for the game for attacking Crookall. 
Th^ quarter ended with Fairview on 
the defence. 

It was an V. A. C. from the com- 
mencement of the third period. Davis 
scooped in the ball from a mIx-up at 
the net In 2 minutes 30 seconds, and 
Peacock drove in another in a trlHe 
over a minute. FleVhellar then took a 
hand at the scoring, and, after another 
minute and a half of play, the Fair- 
view mns bulged again. Fierhellar re- 
peated. 

Jiardly had the last rperlod opened 
when Matheson bulged the strings with 
a shot from 25 yards out. which went 
through the Fairview defence like a 
needle through sailcloth. Gunn made it 
an even dozen for the. .champions six 
minutes later. Burns and Paynter were 
0«naUze<i five minutes «ach for slash- 
ing. Peacock rushed down the field, 
unassisted , passed the defence, 
.scored In 2 minutes. Then he nunl 
more dashes scoring each time, 
final score reading I.t to ].

NBW YORK, J^ne •22.— The final re- 
vision of the track and field programme 
at the Olympic games next month has 
just reached this city. A new arrange- 
ment of the star competitions give a 
better opportunity for athletes to carry 



U was n full day's revenjje that tlie 
Beavers exacted from the Bees yester- 
day, but even Two straight games did 
not even the %core. Victoria took the 
series from the champions on their 
own grounds, winning four of the seven. 

For the Bees it was an off day 
all round. Ttawllng.s, the speedy short, 
had three errors chalked up against 
hlni in the first encounter while the 
erring one in the second was Second 
Baseman Kellar, who got two black 
marks. 

Although tho Bees didn't beat the 
famed Jimmy Clarke, thoy must have 
upset his self-conildonce some. They 
took fourteen hits from bin delivery 
and. if tilings liad been going smooth- 
ly ottierwise, must have won their 
game by a wide margin. 

The Beavers surely kicked our pitch- 
ers around yesterday. In the afternoon 
they haiidled Kaultman and McCreery 
most rudelyi and in the evening Nar- 
veson^; (jin^ Wilsoir got a' taste of the 
.^a me hard handling. Incidentally Hurler 
Belfard got ■ l>ttck at the Bees in tho 
twilight perforiiiaiu'e allowin.iLr thern 
but two safe hits. 

Talking about pitchers, 8pok."vne's 
most priced mound artists got their 
blimps also. The Giants came back with 
a rush and Messrs. .lx,'onard «nd Willis 
fell by tho wayside. 

Blaine Thomas, the speed marvel who 
was with Victoria last season and was 
sold to Bcston, has been signed by the 
Vancouver club and he will join the 
Beavers here tomorrow. T.'iomas was 
given a. trial by Boston, but lie lacked 
control and was then turned over to tho- 
.Sa-ramento olub of the Pacific Coast 
League, from wlilch club President 
Brown secured his relea.««j. Thctrpas can 
get more smoke on the ball than any 
other hurler who svnr performed In 
this league and if he can get control 
with iii.s .speed he will help the Beav- 
ers a lot. 

.Now that the Portland team has 
Mensor and Crulckshanks back In the 
lineuri they are onimencing to climb 
and everything Indicate.s an even closer 
bunching than at present. 

In a junior game yesterday the 
Beavers defeated the Sor-eheada by a 
score of 17 to 15. Snudden and Camp- 
bell formed the batteries for the losers. 
W. Smith and C. Mcllwalne- did the 
pitching and catching for the victors.

VANCOUVER, B.C., June 23. — New 
We«9tntinater moved still nearer to the 
recapture of the lacrosse cliamtilonshlp 
of the world by defeating Vancouver, 
by tho decisive score of 5 to 1 at 
Queen's Park today. T1,U8 gives the 
red shirts four wins to one and they 
only need to keep winning at home to 
again becom'e the guardians of the sil- 
verware, their prestige as tlio weBteru 
nursery of lacrosse as great as ever. 

The last game they won at Queen's 
park was attributed to their display of 
old time dash In the last quarter. To- 
<lay they had the game, sewn up from 
the outset and the longer the game 
weiiL the more the Vancouver chances 
of success faded. And New West- 
minster won this time without having 

( O Kl>^,^n. tV>al.> r^t ^ it^^.^ ,,n..i. 4«. ....»-• 

i there was a "Stonewall" display on the 
I'art of bhelr defence and on the part of 
their home a display of that comblna- 

j lion which is bound to bring Its re- 
Wiird, even without the acceptance of 
risks, If the defence- against them is 
given no relief. 

TTVI.H was'nihe case today. The at- 
tempts of the Vancouver home to get 
inside or get by the Westminster de- 
fence was futile. They scarcely ever 
got into shooting position, but there 
was any amount of wretched firing on 
the net when there was not a ghost of 
a chance of It reaching tho goal keep- 
er. Indeed It was one of the most re- 
markable gaimes in recent year* be- 
tween these ancient rivals in that one 
respect, tho rare calls upon one of the 
goal-keepers to handle the ball. "Bun" 
Clark had little more to do than to istay 
watchful. Scarcely half a dozen shots 
ever ^reaohed him and only one went 
by him. 

KcOveror "Xnnoououa." 

All credit must be paid to the 
Westminster defence for Us powerful 
and effective work, but let It not' be 
forgotten that the Vancouver tiome 
played pretty hopeless kind of lacrosse. 
McGregor was Innocuous, that's the 
word that fits him on the day's play, 
,one could only aigh for a sight for Fitz- 
gerald and hlB electric dashes. Cartef 
worked hard and worthily all the time. 
Murray made a few good runs and 
Phelan waa a tryer but their work 
lacked steam and Matheson was one of 
the chief offenders in slinging the ball 
towards the net when It simply meant 
easy pickings for one of the Interven- 
ing defenders. 

It was due to the cool, careful jind 
determined lacrosse of the green shirts 
defence that the game was as good as 
it was. The occasions when they w<>ro 
really beaten were very few Indeed and 
practically all the shots that scored 
came from a fair distance out 

Take the first goal by "Grumpy" 
.'I'prlng. It was quite a long shot. Hess 
had a clear view or it but ralssod. They

bench, "Grumpy" Spring hit the mark

Before « crowd of excited fans the 
Beacon Hill senior amateurs took yes- 
tprdny Hflenioon's game from ("hemai- 
luiH by a score of 6 to 0. The winning 
run came in the eleventh ho\ir, ten In- 
ninK.'s being necessary to decide the Is- 
.«iiie. The visitors were strong numeric- 
ally, a portion of the grand stand be- 
ing fully occupied with up-island en- 
thusiasts who, although finding It diffi- 
cult to keep pace with the more ex- 
perienced rooters of the Capital, never- 
theless made known, very forcibly, 
their pleasure when their lads tied the 
Hrove and did their utmost, vocally, to 
kp^p their prides In their stride. 

Pitcher Dawson, who performed on 
the mound for the Irfmbor town's nine, 
usml «i ••splttor" for the' most part, 
which puzzled the Hills after the first 
inning. It took him a little while to 
.ifet warmed up. however, and while do- 
Ins; HO the Victorians had been busy 
compiling a short lead. The Initial 
.^laniWl ended with the totals 3 to f in 
their favor, and It was the third before 
the Capital .sf|uad*got anything more. 
Then came a iK)uple of runs, from 
.some hitting and some loose fielding. 
I'-rom that period until the eighth the 
jfame ran along smoothly, but then the 
ChemutnuH outfit landed on Pitcher 
Grady to some purpose and aided by 
Catcher Scott's passed ball, the visi- 
tors were able to count three tlme.<i, 
much to the Joy of the outside fans. 

Nothing happened , In the ninth and 
In the tenth Chsmalnus went down 
quickly. The Hills, In their tum, be- 
gan to find Pitcher Dawson's most elu- 
sive ones, a two bagger, a pkased Mtll 
and a pretty single •tvlag thorn the 
necessary. 

Bddie Gleason was a Mtlstactory um- 
pire.

you do buy. 

But if you buy now you will not only feel the joy of pos- 
session, but will in all probability reap good profits on every 
dollar paid into your house. Another- strong point is that you 
eliminate your landlord.

ain and the United .States, are to ho\'l

, .The "business of this company v\«s 



eatabllshed by Mr. F. W. Woolworth 
In Utica, N. Y., just "one-third of a 
century" ago. \^e. began with a few 
hundred dollar.'? wortii of nierctiandi.sp, 
."Starting an exclusive 60. .store in the 
Old Arcade Buildlnf:. the first .store of 
Its kind ever opened. M\n next store 
was opened In Ijancaster, Pa., and a 
lino of 10c. goods was added, and it 
was here that th'C popular 5 and 10 
cent business was flr.st csL-vbllshed. 
l/ftter, the well-known firms of S. H. 
Knox & Co., F. M. Klrby & Co., C. S. 
Woolworth & Co., K. P. Charlton & Co. 
and W. H. Moore .& Son, were estab- 
lished in the same business. 

The.sf firni.s always maintained a 
friendly relation to each other, their 
proprietors beins intimate personal 
friends. It wa.s but natural that cven- 
u'ally the interests of these firms 
.should be merged together, as was 
done last March, the new firm taking 
the n-anie of F. W. AV'oolworlh Co., 
I.iniited. 

JJuring all the.se year.s this firm has 
faithfully followed the original plan of 
adlierlng .strictly to the popular prices 
of 5c, 10 and IBc. During recent years, 
while the price of nearly all comnio- 
idities hav<i been constantly advancing, 
the variety and value of merchandise 
offered by the Woolworth Stores has 
been con.stantly increasing. This has 
been made poaBible by the enormous 
purchasing power of this firm. Every 
new store opened meant lncre«.sed pur- 
chatsing power, and this resulted In 
better values for the public. 

Manufacturers wlio find It nocessary 
to quickly turn their overproduction of 
stock Into refvdy cash, find in this firm 
■with its unlimited purchasing power, 
an opportunity to di.-ipose of extraor- 
dinary quantities of mcrchandt.<>e. This 
oxplain.s .some of tho values that will 
be offered during this sale. 

Vou will do well to carefully watch 
the windows of the local .store, 1110 
Government .Street, each dey, to see 
some of the .special vahies offered dur- 
ing the week of the sale, and In addi- 
tion to items advertised In. the windows 
there will he placed on the counters a 
large variety of other Wrgalns of 
which no previous announce<m€nt will 
be made. 

Xo such gigantic sale has ever be- 
fore been attempted by any mercantile 
organization, and It Is the purpose of 
this firm to make this sale fittingly 
celebrate tlie auap.Iclous event which it 
commemorates. 

They wish to invite their patrons and 
the public generally to visit their stores 
during lht» week of this unusual sal*, 
that they may secure some of the ex- 
ceptional bargains that will be offered. 

Horf-wltli a list of some of the spec- 
ial values Which will he on «ale at 15c. 
each during the week beginning »>- 
morrow morning: Sweeping Brooms, 
Baby Crib Blankets, Hollow Ground 
liar.ors. Window Screens, Men'a

apprecia.ted the real merits of Chamber-

We have a choice subdivision on the Somas river, Alberni district, about three miles 
from Alberni on Spi|iat Lake road. Fourteen blocks of from two to seven acres have a river 
frontage of nearly 300 feet each. The soil is of the best, a large part of the land has been 
cleared, and the balance is timbered with maple, dogwood, cedar, fir and alder. 

This property lies below the junction of the Sproat and Stamp rivers, and the fishiYig is 
unsurpassed on Vancouver Island. The river is navigable by small boats and canoes; the 
banks are not high, and the shore clean and gravelly. We have several photographs of the 
property, which may be seen upon application.

PAI SEALERS 



Tokyo Government Appoints a 
Commission to Arrange for 
Compensation of Owners 
and Crews Affected 



WILL CC/\SISTOF 

SEVEN MEMBERS 



Dominion Government Expect- 
ed to Follow Similar Method 
in Arranging for indemnity 
For Local Sealers 



The last Issue of tlio Japanese offi- 
cial gazette received from Tokyo put>- 
llshe« an Imperial ordinance for the 
appointment of a commission to Inves- 
iia«.t<> and carry oi't •'"!' PflVTl^Tlt of 
lompenaatlon to the owners of Japan- 
ese sealing sct|Ooners and hunters and 
orews deprived of their right to hunt 
:3eals at sea as a result of the enact- 
ment of the treaty with Canada, 
United States and Russia, under which 
pelagic sealing wa^ suppressed. The 
~e'6inhilH3TQh to bo appointed by " ITie 
Japanese, government will consist of a 
chairman and six commissioners to be 
apipointed from the officials of the de- 
7)artments of agriculture and com- 
merce, in whose department the seal- 
ing ln<luHtry was regulated. 

The system being adopted by the 
Japanese government, which recently 
provided $500,000 for compensation of 
the sealers, of wliich — as will similarly 
be received by Canada — the govern- 
ment of Japan will receive $200,000 
from the government of the United 
States, the treaty providing that this 
amount be advanced from the share to 
be received by both Canada and Japan 
from the seal rookeries of the North 
Pacific, is similar to that to be adopt- 
ed by tihe Canadian government. It is 
understood that tlie premier and Hon. 
Mr. Hazen, minister of marine, have 
intimated that the government will ap- 
point a commission to consider the 
(liiestlon of compensation for the Vic- 
toria sealers. 

It is proposed to reimburse the Vic- 
toria Sealing ^company and owners of 
independent schooners for their loss of 
liie Industry in which they liave been 
engaged for three decades, and have, 
«s a result of their industry, placed 
the Dominion government in a position 
to secure, as was done by the enact- 
ment of the treaty, a share in the seal 
herds, which will bring a largo sum 
into the Canadian trea-sury, estimated 
conservatively at $7,000,000^ during the 
life of the tie.T,ly. It Is also Intended 
to (.ornpenstite captains and hunters of 
the scaling fleet who were engaged In 
the business at the time of the enact- 
ment of the treaty. 

The Victoria Sealing company will 
dispose of Its fleet of vessels by pub- 
lic auction on June 26, when Mr. May- 
nard, auctioneer, will ask bids on the 
carious vessels lying at tlie company'.s 
wharf at Point Elllce. The minl.ster 
of marine and fisheries, Hon, Mr. Haz- 
en, gave the company and Independent 
of fisheries, Hon. Mr. Hazen, gave the 
company anj independent owners per- 
mission to dispose of their fleet some 
time ago without prejudice to their 
claim for compensation. The vessels 
to be sold by the sealing company, 
with their tonnage, are as follows:

FISH SACRIFICED 

TO SAVE SCHOONER 



•S?;aTTUE. June 22.^-After a narrow 
escape from destruction on the north-

lier orlgljial c«tcK of 52,000 pounds,

correct, for the Washington ran ashoru 
four mllM north of Cape Scott, on a 
lieach atrew.n with rocks and boulders. 

Luckily the schooner did not strike 
the rocks head on, but wpdged herself 
In betiVf>en two larKe boulders. The ac- 
cident occurred at" extreme hl»h tide.

C.P.B. Arranging Schedule Around the 

World Via Victoria for Traveler 

Who Seeks to Make Record 



Arrangements are being made by Mr. 
E. J. Wise, a wealtliy manufacturer of 
plumbing supplies at Watertown, New 
York, with the C. P. R. for an attempt 
to lireak the world's record in circling 
the globe. Since the representative of a 
Paris newspaper made the trip in 39 
days via the C. P. R., passing through 
Victoria on hia way from Paris to Paris 
that time has stbod, and, owing to sev- 
eral connections being made since In 
tho Orient Iietwecn the Jaijanese anu 
Ru.ssiaii railroad and steamship sys- 
ti'iriK Mr. Wiso ttntioipntes tliat lie will 
be al>le to cut down the time, and pro- 
poses to sail from Victoria on August 
14. He will cross llie continent from 
New York to Seattle, and arrive here 
on the Princess Victoria at noon on 
August 14th to connect witli tho outgo- 
ing Empress. 

Mr. Wise has been malting prepar- 
ations for some time past for the trip. 
He will leave Xew York city August 
30, go to Chicago over the Twentieth 
Century, Limited, ride In tlie baggage 
car of the Milwaukee's fast mall to St. 
Paul, sleep in a baggage car on the 
Great Northern's fast mail to Seattle, 
taking his meals at lunch counters en 
route, and again reach commo<iiou.s 
quarters aboard a Canadian Pacific 
steamer to Victoria when he reaches 
Seattle. Arrangements have been 
made witl: the Canadian Pacific to hold 
the \'lctoria boat for him if necessary. 

Twelve days after he boards the fast 
C. P. R. steamer, which piles across the 
Pacific from two to three <iays faster 
than all other transpactflc liners, Mr. 
Wise will reach Yokohama, and will 
hurry northward over the Tokkaido 
railroad to connect with the Russian 
steamer at Tsuruga bound to Vladivos- 
tok, whence he will proceed over tho 
trans-Siberian railroad to Moscow, 
changing there for the Journey across 
Europe to place himself in the hands of 
the C. P. R. again In London for the 
trip aoross the Atlantic.

great succeaa tor Brttlith tntereata In 
China, because it was generally expect- 
ed that the Kalping inlnea would be 
bought up by the Chinese rlghts-recov* 
ery movement 

Originally the Kalplng coal mines 
were a joint enterprise between tho 
Chinese government and Chinese capi- 
talists, initiated by the late Ll Ilung- 
chang at an outlay of 1,200,000 taels 
during his vlceroyalty of Chill. The 
company realizes every year. It Is sq^id, 
a net profit of at least £300,000. 

The Lanchow coal . mine company 
was started by the Chinese who failed 
In an attempt to buy up the Kalplng 
mines from the British, with a view 
to putting a KpoUo in the wheel of tho 
British company. Its capital was 2,- 
000,000 taelB. and the DeutBCh-Asiatiche 
bank in Tientsin assisted this move- 
ment against the British concern. Op- 
erations were started at Ma-chia kou 
and some other flchls, all of wliich 
directly connected with the tt(?lUa at

Western China 



W'itli a record-breaking complement 
of pai<sengers, 757 In all, and 4,000 tons 
oi: general cargo, includin.g over 1,000 
bales of silk, and 250 cases of silk goods 
and limits, the R. M. S. Monteagle, Capt. 
Davidson, of the C. P. R. reached the 
outer wharf soon after noon yesterday 
from Hongkong ijnd the usual ports of 
call In the Orient. 

In viit^ sa«oon w'e'TC" "t» paojicngcrs, •»." 
eluding the, usual large number of mis- 
sionaries — the vessel being known as 
the missionary .steamer. More than a 
quarter of the saloon passengers were 
missionarjes. Including Rev. Dr. S. S. 
0.«terhout, formerly of this city, who 
has been at Canton, China, since hl.s hp- 
poIntnient*a.« superintendent of Orictila! 
missions for the Methodist church in 
Canada, studying the Chinese language. 
Mr. Osterhout, who is a lircither-lnlaw 
of Aid. Miimbor, said he had an inter- 
esting stay in Canton, the .southern city 
being torn with strife wliile he was 
there, and It was scarcely possible to 
walk in the street any day witliout liear- 
Ing shooting or seeing bodies of vic- 
tims. There Is still much unrest In 
Canton, considerable piracy, ijut the re- 
publicans oftlciuls are working hard to 
reach a better condition. Rev. C. H. 
Ycrkes, another missionary from Shang- 
hai, accompanied by his wife, contriict- 
ed typhoid on the voyage, and was land- 
ed here for hospital treatment. Rev. 
R. S. IjOngley and family were mission- 
aries from Chenglu, Sr.echuan, who wore 
at the Chinese city during the revoiu- 
ttenary troubles there. 

Other arrivals Included .Mr. H, W. 
Arthur, a well known merchant of Yrdio- 
hama and family. Commander Cooper, 
who was chief officer of the wrecked 
Empress of China, Capt. S. Weigall, of 
one of Jardine Mallieson'a steamers and 
family, the H. V. Souter of the Charter- 
ed Bank at Yokohama, Mr. Donald Mc- 
Coll, manager of the Shanghai Tram- 
waV Company and wife, and many 
others. One of the Chinese steerage 
pa&sengers was afflicted with dipiitherla, 
and Is being landed for Uospital treat- 
ment. There were 67 Asiatic second 
class and 604 steerage, mostly Chinese. 

According to advices brought by the 
Monteagle the north western regions of 
China are evidently in a state of fer- 
ment. On the one hand the Mahom- 
medan and the Chinese residents of 
Hsinkilang are fighting fiercely wher- 
pver they meet. At the same time all 
the Chineso convicts who have been ex- 
iled to this distant region, are pillaging 
and assassinating on a wholesale .scale. 
In the third place, the Chinese local 
militia are plundering and killing the 
Chiiie.sc Inhabitants. And tinally "hh- 
slan troops at the mines In Kasbugal 
arc engaging in an armed dispute with 
tho Chinese miners, and it I.s .said lliat 
large reinforcements of Cos.sacks have 
been went from Siberia to the mine.s. 

Things seem to be going from bad to 
worse In Mslnklang. The Mohammed- 
ans arc said to be gaining strenglh 
dally, and the arrival at -Kasbugal of 
3,000 Russian troops has not contribut- 
ed to the tranqtillity of the filtuatlnn. 
The seven Chinese cities, over which the 
dragon flag has hitherto flown, have 
now fallen into Moliammedan hands, 
and the sairie Is true of the Russian 
occupation of III. Trade is said to be 
paralysed and the MohammedBn.s' are 
alleged to be determined that the »cv- 
rlblc things suffered by their religion- 
ists half a century ago shall be amply 
avenged on this occasion.

Advice* from Shanghai state that 
Capt. Robert Hollar's company has con- 
tracted with General LI, says a Peking 
despatch, lor the reconstruction of the 
streets of Hankow at a cost of 130,000,- 
000. A Hahkow despatch says that 
Qeneral Ll concluded a loan of |36,000,-

The Norwegian steam whaler Kit, a 
:. three-master, largest of the steam 
whalers In t/he North PaclfU-. arrived 
In port yesterday from Seattle and an- 
chored off the outer wharf. The Kit, 
which reached Seattle a month ago 
from Vladivostok, Is to be deap^tolied 
to hunt whales In the .-Vrctic. She 
was brought to the Sound with the In- 
tention of securing. If posKlble, a 
United States register, an<j application 
was made on the ground that the ves- 
«el could be used In the whiter as an 
Ice-breaker at Cape Nome, but nothing 
has been done to change the reglntry, 
and the owners In Norway have de- 
i.-IJed to send their vc.'iael on ii cruise 
In the Arctic. 

Kiiulpped with all the machinery of 
a wliallng station, the Kit will kill and 
i-.ut up the whal.^s mul ).H.k the valu- 
able products. 

BuUt In Norway in 1011. tin' Kit was 
Nertt by her owner, CMirlstinn Chrlsllan- 
.sen, to Vladivostok witih two other 
vessels of her type, when whaling 
along the Norwegian coast was pro- 
hibited by the law. S^c camo across

FIRE ON FISHING 

BOA T FISHMAIO 

■BTlneer ■•▼•rely Xaraad sad Captain 

and Others Had Varrow Kscape 

at Frlaoe Mnpert 

The steamer Prince Albert, of the 
O. T. P., was In port yesterdai' from 
the north, foUowIgn the Vadso, of the 
Boscowltz SteamshNp company, which 
returned northbound on Friday night. 
News was brought from Prince Rupert 
by the steamer of a fire on board the 
Prince Rupert fishing vessel Fishmald 
on Monday last. As the vessel -was 
leaving the government wharf, a. back- 
fire in the engine room ignited light, 
inflammable material in the pilot 
house, and in an liiGtanl tha* upper 
•structure of tin; boat was abla-/:e. 
I aught full In the face by the ex- 
plosion, the Kishmaid's engineer, Ar- 
thur Sparks, was severely burned. He 
made a dash for safety with bis hair 
and clothing ablaze, leaping ti'oin <]u- 
vpssel Into the sea. Captain George 
Thurbiir, too, was .caught while at the 
wheel In the pilot house by the scorch- 
ing flame, but, though he lost his eye-, 
lashes, eyebrows, his cap and nearly all 
•the hair of his head, he was able to 
save the" engineer and take bim to the 
hospital. Captain Thurbur has one bad 
burn on the wrist and his forehead is 

scorched r«d..«tt-««Us.«t;M«^l«*^'osfl[^'T

On board the Fishmald when she 
caught fire were all the crew, consist-

H. .Talmar, l'"red Hawke.s and Jack 
Stewart, the latter being one of the 
men who came through the famous 
adventure when the I'lshmald turned

has a fine fishing record as well as 
a record of adventure.

This Map 



Make a study of this map. It is no way distorted. 
Comj)are it with (Chapman's niaj) for the Dominion gov- 
ernment. It shows a section about two miles wide, and 
e.xtending from the City Hall to Collingwood. Within 
this belt is contained all the thoroughfares and trans- 
portation lines out of Victoria into Saanich. The striking 
feature is that all the thoroughfares converge into but 
two trunk lines in the vicinity of Collingwood. This is 
significant. The most direct possible route from Vic- 
^loria into Saanich is via Douglas street. Carey Road is a 
continuation of Douglas street, and passes directly in 
front of Collingwood. 

On the one side of (k>llingwood is the Victoria ahd 
Sidney railroad, an established steam line. This railroad 
will be of utmost importanc > when Victoria becomes a 
world port. On the other side is the line of the new Sub- 
urban Electric Railway. This line will be in operation 
in the near future. The stations on either of these lines 
will be most convenient to Collingwood. 

Large Lots— $350 to $650 




25 Minutes to Victoria via Saanich Suburban" 



Collingwood 

Ttis to be seen that Collingwood holds a position of 
advantage as regards lines of traffic to and from Vic- 
toria. It has other advantages. A shrewd investor will 
be quick to see the possibilities of Collingwood lots. The 
reasons are apparent. 

Collingwood is Just outside the present area of in- 
creased prices — he buys at first prices. 

Collingwood is in the path of immediate develop- 
ment—he realizes quickly on his investment. 

Collingwood is to be ser\'ed by the Saanich Suburban 
— this insures immediate development. 

Collingwood is surroun ded by schools and churches 
— this makes it desirable for home-building. 

Nearly e\'ery convenience of the city can be had in 
Collingwood. It will have a better car service than fifty- 
five per cent of the residents of Victoria enjoy today. 
The lots are sightly, the soil is productive, the drainage is 
j)erfect, the exposure is to the south. What might be add- 
ed that would make suburban life more attractive? There 
are no assessments. Taxes are inconsiderable. Come 
with us to Collingwood, it makes its own appeal.

Leonard, Reid & 
Co. 

Pemberton BIdg. 



I do not rtnd It necrHsary to take a 
Klant Ht the calendar these days to rtal- 
\7.i- that tlic )''ourlli of .luly Ik rajiidly 
drawing near. The unumial amotint of 
maU reaching me daily tells the story. 

Some timf ago 1 announced in the 
Dally Colonist that 1 had by aCfldent 
run across ,llm Klynn and Jaclt Curlcy, 
and liad been asked to as.slst the chul- 
lcn>,'t'r for the heavy-weight cliatnpion- 
sliip diiriuK the last few weeks of traiu- 
iiiK, and to act as one of his Heoumls 
wlien )ie faces .lohnson in the ring. 
Ever since that I have brcn a larsot for 
tlu' epfstlc.«! of flsht fans from all sec- 
tinns of this biK country. 

'I'lio gist of most ciuestlon.s fired at 
me naturally is, "what chance haa 
Klynn to beat the other?" .\ few cor- 
respondents are frank enouKh to admit 
that It Is not sentiment that prompts 
them to solicit the opinion of the writer, 
but instead the tempting odds against 
tiie wtilte man. to be had for the askiufs', 
and of which they pin-pone to take ud- 
VB i Ttft -s e If tbe^propf-r-encmirnsement in 
forthcoming. Some others are more 
pointed and personal, and boldly Inrnilre 
the reason for my delay in joining the 
I'^lynii camp. 

Til attempt to answer the inaii.\ r|iipr- 
ies b\- mail would lie loo dlftiniilt a la.sk, 
hO 1 take tbl.s method of repIyipK to my 
il'iizzers. In the first place I wlsih to 
explain that I doubt very much if 1 will 
li. able to attend the Klynn-,Iohnson bat- 
tle at all, even a.s a spectator. Since 
my return from the road certain busi- 
n(-Ks matters ha\e kepi me tied down 
i'losel\- to my otfloe. aiul It looks .-ts if I 
wlll'Jiave to plve up the Id- a o!' lakniK 
the trip to Ijim Vesras. 

riynn'a Cbanc«a 

To the average student of form In 
boxing. J'^lynn's chances of winnliiK over 
.lohnson must appi'ar mighty slim. 
Willi the l.ifier In the splendid condi- 
tion of -two years ago when ho took the 
title from .Teffrles, it would be rldjcnl- 
.iiis to offer ail excuse for this cominj? 
ballli'. 13ut as everybody knows the 
clianipion has been stepping a pretix- 
fast pace during the past two years, and 
no matter what any of the so-called ex- 
perts may tell you. take it from one who 
knows, It Is Impossible to get into shape 
by trninink' a couple of months after a 
long indulgence in the good things of 
,life. 

And therein 15es Ftynn's greatest op- 
portunity — .Fohnson'a lack of condition. 
That has beaten many a good man In 
tile past, and probably will in the 



future. According to alt account* the 
ehamplon will eritar tha rinc, on the 
Fourth of July a far dlflPerer»t man phya- 
^caily from the athlete who defeated 
Burn* and Jeffries. 

Klynn's talk with me suggeHtcd that 
his confldence was based In the main 
upon the belief thit the champion can 
not get in good flchting trim In the 
ahort time allotted to tralninc 

Jim doea not hope to win quickly; he 
la prepared to take all Johnaon can 
hand out for ten or fifteen rounds; after 
tha he argues condition will tell, and 
that he will gradually wear the cham- 
pion down to the point where he can 
land the finishing blows. 

There Is no disputing tiie fact, as dla- 
paiches from the battle ground Inform 
us from day to day, that Johnson holds 
Klynn very cheap, and the limited 
amount of work he hks done to date 
bear.* ample teslmony to that fact, 
riiotographs of Jobii.son recently taken 
at l^as Vegas corroborate the fetoriea of 
lock of condition. 

I wil be his lack of condition that 
beats Johnson, If such an Interesting 
e^'ent ie to happen, as thcie Is no other 
way in the world It is possible to figure 
l''lynn victor. The old adage of the 
ring — a good big man can beat a good 
lUtle man — tits this match to a T. 

Klynn's chances may be compared 
with those of Tommy Burns when the 
latter met Johnson. Bulk won then as 
It should In this Instance, the difference 
lieing that Johnson at that time had not 
gene the pace that hurts, and which lie 
has adhered to cIo."icly since winnlns 
over Jeffries. 

There Is Wo Trame-TJp 

Tliere an- rumors, a.s is geiK'rall.v the 
case in matches where championship;! 
arc involved, that the affair is a frame- 
up. but t here Is. no fou ndaiion for the 
.'Ucries. Any pre-arrangement would 
call for Johnson o quit to his opponent, 
and the negroes vanity would never in 
ni.\ opinion permit of lilm "laying 
d( wn ' to a .-smaller man. 

inynti is taking a long clirincr; he is 
rislcing a beating without monetary 
return worth mentloninr; against the 
chance of winning a title and thereafter 
reaping a golden harvest in picture re- 
cclpt.s and theatrical engagement, he 
has absolutely nothing to lose In the 
matter of reputation. Ninety-nine out 
of every hundred men who follow pug-- 
ilism expect .iohn.son to win. No dis- 
;,'iace will atlacli to Klynn should the 
champion lieat him, a victory will mean 
fame and fortune that come to few men. 

It may interest my readers if I 
quote a few paK.sngea from a letter 
Just at hand from a friend, who lias 
been at Las Vegas for several weeks, 
lie says among other things; "There 
is no denying the fact that Johnson Is 
carrying too much weight around the 
nild-seetlon. l-'lynn will enter the ring 
around i;(5 pound.s; Jolinson will carry 
considerable fat with him the day of the 
light At first the champion appeared to 
te.ke the whole thing as a joke, but of 
late has been devoting more time to 
training as if. he is just beginning to 
realize that the job ahead calls for bet- 
ter condition. While, as you said In a j 
recent article, the records of the men 
give Flynn little chance, there are many | 
here on the ground, including myself, I 
who Intend taking a flyer on the I'ueblo 
CnnMnurd on Vnge 20, Col. 3.

flames that at one time threatened to 
devour the C. P. R. hotel at the moun-

was the danger tliat calls for help 
were sent to Calgary, and a special

L fenows Flyrin at his best does not class

hope there is of Jim's being returned 
victor must be builded upon the belief 
that the present title holder will be un- 
able to toe the mark anywhere near his 
best shape. 

The old saw about youth being; scrvol 
can hardly apply here as there is 
-scarcely more than a year's difference 
in the ages of the two men. But It Is 
;i well known fact that I'^lynn ha.s clung 
pretty closely to the slralKht and nar-

with Flynn. lie boa.sts that Flynn will 
give iilm little trouble, and names six- 
teen rounds as the extreme limit of iii.s 
toleration of Jame.s in the ring. 

Jack says nothing of the "colored 
lirothers" in making public his plan." 
lor the future. Not a word about Lang- 
ford, McVcy or Jeannctte. Further- 
more he names September 1 as the date 
of his retirement from the ring, and 
stipulates that a.splrants for tho title 
must meet him before that day flits by. 
So thi.s would Indicate he has no inten- 
tion of (li.sputing the question of sup- 
eriority with any of tho dark-.skinnod 
brui.ser.s mentioned. 

Joe Jeannetto i.s very much worried 
o\oi- Johnson's spiel about giiitting 
from the game after he cleans up the 
white boys. Joe thinks 3ome (freat big 
Iioodoo is chasing him all the time. Sam 
i^angford lias run out twice, tho way 
Joe tells it, and now that a Paris pro- 
moter lias come through with an olter 
of $30,000 for Johnson to battle him 
(Jeannrnte) to a finish. Jack calmly 
sets an early date for his Adelina Pattl 
stunt. 

By the way, the I^arls folk intend to 
land the battle If such a thing is pos- 
sible, and have arranged to deposit the 
J30,000 In the hands of responsible par- 
tics if Johnson will agree to the match. 
Of course, this offer hangs on the out- 
come of the Las Vegas quarrel. .Should 
l-'lynn be returned winner, nothing do- 
ing for J. Arthur. Jeannctte, like Bar- 
kis, Is always willing. He is v;ot par- 
ticular as to color, or reputation cither. 
The greater the "rep," the more coin for 
Joseph.

OTTAWA, jane so^—fbk Bs^jtwrnr 
Board today hantM 'doirQ Iti -jtidg- 
ment in the somevfaat celebraited 
Hazelton station case. In December 
last, the board granted the applka- 
tion of Robert Kelly imd his asso- 
ciates for a station otl i>ot 883 Cas- 
siar District. The G. f ; l"*; appealed 
to the Dominion Government whk:h 
reopened the case in order that new 
evidence might be heaid. The judg- 
ment, given out today was written by 
Commissioner McLean, and concurred 
in by other commissioners. The 
board states that it is unable to see 
why the previous order should be 
varied. The board remarks that the 
views exjircsscd by the late Chief 
Commissioner are as pertinent to the 
location of this station now as when 
uttered; 



The board expresses the view that 
the residents of South Hazelton have 
made a case for the location of a 
station nearer to them, but that the 
original plan for a station, yards and 
sidings submitted by the G. T. P. de- 
parted from everything which had 
been laid down as a standard. The 
order proceeds; 

"Had the board required the rail- 
way to locate a station under the en- 
gineering and operating conditions 
which it itself shows in this case, 
there would have been most strenu- 
ous objection on the part of the rail- 
way- When called upon by the rail- 
way to approve of such a station site 
as it may be convenient for the peo- 
ple of Hazelton, the board can .pot 
and will not be oblivious of the stan- 
dard which the railway has chosen 
itself."

PANAMA 

PARK 



55 



Note the splendid location and surroundings of Panama Park in the above 
picture. 

The natural position of this property, combined with the ease iii which it can 
be reached from the business section of the city, the high-class nature of the soil 
and the beauty of its layout, assure it a great future as a residential centre. 

The terms have been arranged so that every investor has an opportunity to 
get a homesite of his own without cramping his resources. 

The original owners are sparing no expense in fulfilling their promise to the 
l)uyer to grade the streets and put down the sidewalks. This work has been under 
way for a couple of weeks, and according to contract, will be completed in the 
very near future. Scores of men are at work on the property. 

Lots lying' adjacent to the farthest extremity of Panama Park are now on the 
market at prices 30 per cent higher than Panama Park lots. They are identical in 
soil and surroundings. Remember that the B. C. Electric runs right through 
i*anama Park. A first-class service with the up-town section is assured. 

These are the prices that have made Panama Park a record-selling subdi- 
vision.

"lUit how can you sell suits that were 
really made td sell at $25, $35 and $45, for 
S.8.75?" 

That's a question that is rcasona1)lc for 
\iui to ask. Ce^tamly we don't live on the 
loss, l)iit tliis is an occasion when we arc 
selling costumes at a. very close margin of 
profit. , 

Must manufacturers arc now htisy with 
llic winter goods, and. as a result, the}- arc 
williiiGf to sell the balance of their summer 
stock at any reasonable price that they can 
S'et. 

Tliis is part of a purchase that our \^in- 
couver Iniyer was fortunate to secure at an 
exceptional!}- low price. They arrived here 
on Tlitirsday afternoon, and we have marked 
them u]) at a price that should niakc a rapid 
sale on Monday. 

See the showing in the \'iew street windows. They include whip- 
cords, liomespuns. serges, fancy suitings, diagonal serges and flannel 
effects. Navy, black, grey, brown and fawns arc the chief colors, and, 
of course there are both plain colors, stripes and mixtures to choose 
from. lUnh plain tailored and fancy styles are here, but the fact that 
there are so many different models to choose from, makes it impos- 
sible to give a full description. 

All arc silk or satin lined, and every one is an excellent value.

However, it is advisable to buy at once. There is no telling how soon we shall be com-

One ii[ the little known and seldom 
heard of services of the Dominion gov- 
ernment, which, however, has been a 
vital factor in tlic building' up of the 
northern portions of British , Columbia 
and the Yukon territory, is the telegraph 
line of which Mr. J. T. Phelan, of 
\''ancouver, is superintendent. I'he Govern- 
ment line covers a territory which the ordin- 
ary commercial companies would never think 
twice about operating in, not onlv because 
the business originating there is small, but 
because the rlifficulties to be encountered in 
installing and maintaining a service are so 
manifold and ceaseless that the keeping open 
of the line for communication settles down 
to one continuous grim battle with the ele- 
ments; fire in the summer months, wind in 
the equinoxial seast-jns of spring and fall, and 
snow all the long winter. 

The Dominion Government maintains tele- 
graph service in the Lower St. Lawrence and 
the Maritime Provinces, a small service in 
(.)nt.-irio. and a large number of comparatively 
small services in different parts of British 
Columbia, the total revenues of which, for 
the fiscal year 1910-11, amounted to $169,- 
585.15. Of this amount tjigAshcroft-Dawson 
service contributed no fessThan $119,065.98 
revenue. 

The main line runs from Ashcroft to the 
international boundary below Dawson, a dis- 
tance of 2,500 miles. A branch goes from 
Ashcroft to Lillooet, some 60 miles, and an 
extension is being made this year of seventy 
miles to reach the Pioneer Mining camps 
along Cadwadler Creek. Another branch ex- 
lends from 150-Mile House to Quesnelle 
Forks, and a branch of sixty miles from 
Quesnelle to Barkerville. The branch line 
neeting with Prince Rupert and Port Simpson 
leaves the main line at liazelton, and is 200 
miles in extent. Half way on this branch at 
Kitsumkalum River, is the point where the 
!4/(lfedWfc|9 Stewart starts; its distance being 175 
''^'^ ""'^'^ilCflkon district there is a branch 
lUnger to Livingstone Creek, 
WffOly-five miles. A new

placed in their hands a small section of the 
wiTderness over which they may have author- 
ity so long as they maintain it in a proper 
state of subjection. 

If they cannot keep their section of the 
line open for communication, they know they 
are not fit to rule. For the wilderness is al- 
ways fighting back. The wind topples over 
trees, and carry down both* wire and poles. 
Forest fires spring up out of nothing, and 
lash up and down the northern valleys, and 
the snow fed streams from the mountains are 
likely to become raging torrents overnight to 
carry away not only the telegraph poles and 
other appliances but stations as well. In the 
winter the snow is a still more persistent 
enemy. 

Every man has his own section of line to 
look after and keep in repair. A trail is cut 
when the construction of the line is done, and 
it is up to the lineman to keep this trail open. 
If the line crosses a stream, the lineman must 
have it bridged, and this he docs cynningly 
with trees balanced on the cantelever system, 
for the watercourse which he can wade across 
ankle deep this morning is likely to be twenty 
feet deep and with a current racing forty miles 
ati hour, before he returns at night. No canoe 
could ever stem the raging waters, and his 
<ran)e, swaying bridge is his only sure method 
«f ^lonlinf the stream at all times. In the 
Wiattr llQtf fpioi^phoes are used. The dis-

had been removing trees which had been over-

The Micro-Thermometer 

We have during the past few days read 
with great interest and pleasure that Froi. 
Barnes cf McGill University lias proved the 
practical value of his micro-thermometer in 
detecting the presence of ice at sea. 

It is highly probable that this instrument, 
after further tests, will be adopted by all ship- 
ping interests, and another great factor will be 
added to the other devices (including the wire- 
less) for the safety of human lives at sea. 

The following' information leading up to 
this subject may prove uf interest at the pres- 
ent time: 

In the early go's the writer in traveling 
from New York to C.ibraltar became deeply 
interested in the simple and^slow method then 
adopted on board sliip ot taking the temper- 
ature of the sea water. This was done by 
dropping a canvas bucket into the sea, and 
upon bringing this to the deck, a good ordin- 
ary thermometer was placed in it, and after a 
few minutes the temperature of the water was 
taken and entered in the ship's log. 

This method, though satisfactory for ordin- ■ 
ary marine work, such as giving 'the times of 
enterins/ and leaving the warm waters of the 
(Tulf Stream, atrll for detecting the presence 
of ice, the writer not only then considered it 
too slow, but when returning by the northern 
ite V i-ipn '^'^'-g'T wpre all ahont, and dense 



fog surrounded the ship, one felt convmced a 
better method could and should be found for 
this important work. 

In i8q5 the writer sitcceeded in complea<ng 
an electric transmitting thermometer, designed 
specially for indicating on the bridge of a ship 
immediate changes of temperattire -^^ sea 
water. 

This instrument proved successful through 
the laboratory tests, and patents were taken 
out for it. 

The following illustration is taken ff-om 
The Canadian Patent: 

The thermometer on the right consists of 
a tube and bulb partly filled with mercury. 
Through the centre of this tube passes a fine 
thread-like steel wire, krranged .so that both 
ends connect to a cable, v>-hich completes a cir- 
cuit through an electric battery and the indi- 
cator on the left which is placed on the bridge. 

That portion of the fine steel^^ wire in t'.e 
tube which is above the mercury offers a cer- 
tain resistance to the electric current from the 
battery, and the longer this exposed wire is the 
greater ^vill its resistance be. and the indicator 
shows a falling temperature. This thermometer 
v.as well protected and designed to be [placed 
in the water either at the bow or abreast of 
the bridge as' now done for the sounding ma- 
chine. 

If the temperature of the sea water bc; 
came colder, the mercury in the tube and bulb 
would contract and leave more of the steel wire 
exposed, w-hich increased the electrical resist- 
ance and caused the indicator to immediately 
fall. 

Owing to official duties at Toronto, the 
writer was unable to bring this device before 
the shipping community. 

When again crossing the Atlantic in 1901, 
the writer still found a general belief at sea 
tVit the canvas bucket and ordinary thermo- 
meter was quite sufficient for marine pur- 
pose:^. 

-— The .present micro-thermometer designed 
by Prof. Barnes is indeed a valuable invention, 
and designed to become of great practical ser- 
vice, not only in various branches of science, 
but in commercial life. 

This instrument is also an electric trans- 
mitting thermometer, liut is far more sensitive 
and serviceable than the one already referred 
to. 

It appears to be an improvement or special 
application of an electric thermometer made 
some years ago by Prof. Callendar, F.K.S., 
predecessor at McGill University to Prof, 
Barnes, and now at the London University, 
where the writer last year had the pleasure .-^f 
seeing his wonderful instruments. In 1899 
this instrument was set up on the summit of 
the mountain at ^Montreal, and recorded per- 
fectly at the observatory a mile distant and 
600 feet below. , 

This instrument consists of a coil of fiqe. 
platinum wire, wotmd on a mica frame, and 
placed in a 'special tube. This is connected to 
an electric recorder on tlie bridge of a ship. 
This fine platinum wire is affected by very 
.small changes of temperature; the colder the 
water the better conductor this wire becomes, 
and the electric recorder immediately responds 
to the change. When necessary, the actual 
changes arc continuously and automatically 
recorded on moving paper. 

Prof. Barnes tells us that three years ago 
he made the micro-thermometer. In the sum- 
mer of 1910 the Canadian Government gave 
him an opportunity of testjng his thermo- 
meter on a trip to Hudson Hay. The records 
of water temperature were obtained through 
the Straits of Belle Isle and along the Labra- 
d'or coast. The effects of large icebergs were 
also recorded at distance ranging from two to 
seven miles. 

The observations were made with the 
micro-thermometer immersed in the .<iea water 
at a depth of five feet. The instrument also 
reveialed the presence of the Labrador coast, 
bv recording its influence on the undercur- 
fents of the colder water, and even at a dis- 
tance of five miles from shore. In drawing 
nearer to an iceberg the instrument shows first 
an Increase of temperature above that of the 
sea, followed at once by a shar^ fall, the sea 
«tttcr becoming colder the nAier one ap- 



proaches an iceberg. This was also noticed 
in water almost at the freezing point. 

The extreme .•steadiness of the temperature 
of the open sea far away from land and berg,s 
is of great interest. This thermometer showed 
variations of only a few tenths of a degree for 
hundreds of miles. On sailing to England on 
the Royal George, he obtained com])lete tem- 
perature charts right across the .Atlantic. 
These showed clearly three disturbing elements 
in the sea. One was the effect of ice. the sec- 
ond was the effect of the junction between the 
Gulf Stream and the cold Arctic c-<rent, the 
third was the effect of the land as the Irish 
coast was approached. If properly installed 
on board ship, the inventor states, it would 
absolutely prevent a ship from running iiitu an 
iceberg, or from running iin a coast during 
fog. 

Thi| latter statement ha& a practical bear- 
ing upon otiff QiiiWttaaastal navigation, and may 
be well wortln' of testing here also. This val; 
uable instrument records one-thousandth of a 
degree as easily ^ an ordiiiaty thermomet^ 
records a degrfee, and it works even better 
wh'en tkfere is a vibration than when there is 



tinually replenished at tHeni, but it often hap- 
pens that the lineman cannot make a cabin 
when he camps in the open, and lives and eats 
like a native. 

Often in that northern country the oper- 
ators and linemen come on indications of 
previous white visitations of which no records 
remain, and of their adventures and experi- 
ences, manv books could be written. The 
country has a particular attraction for the 
old-time operators, for it is rich in reminis- 
cences of the early development of the tele- 
graph business. In 1859 the 'Atlantic cable 
broke and there was a lack of communication 
for some time. To prevent a repetition of, 
this, the Western Union Company decided on 
a land wire to connect this continent with 
Europe, and so they started up the old Cariboo 
road and the Nechaco valley, intending to go 
on through Alaska and out through the Aleu- 
tian chain and in to .Asia. They spent over 
three million dollars before they gave up the 
attempt. That was in the early sixties, but 
the go\-ernment service today is still using 
parts of the original wires put in by the 
American company as a second wire for the 
local scr\-ice up north.

none. The most important feature of this de- 
vice is that it gives at each instant the temper- 
ature of the sea at a point where it is used, 
whereas with the present method of canvas 
bucket and ordinary thermometer it is some 
minutes before tiie temperature can be re- 
ported to the officer on the bridge, while ift 
the meantime the ship may have traveled five 
to ten miles from the point where the sample 
of water was taken. 

The ordinary observations very often show- 
practically no difference at all when running 
near icebergs. 

The perfecting of thi.'^ instrument is a prac- 
tical lesson, showing us the value of research 
work being done in our great universities, and 
it is to be hoped- that our own provincial uni- 
versity will take a prominent part jn this grand 
work in the near future.

THE ROMAMCE OF TELEGRAPH CON- 
STRUCTION IN NORTHERN WILDS 



(Continued from Page One) 
Sometimes staunch friendships are struck 
up and the redskin who takes a liking to a 
lineman will stay with him for days on his 
trail up and down the line, setting his traps 
along the route followed by the lineman, and 
the two aid each other in making camps and 
cooking food. There are shelter cabins built 
at intervals along the wire for use in emer- 
gency, to provide protection from a long 
drawn-out blizrard, fuel and food being con- 



well. Samuel Footc, the renowned wit and 
brilliant mimic, stricken with paralysis and on 
the eve of making his last earthly journey, was 
not so depressed by the near approach of death, 
that he himself foresaw, as to miss an oppor- 
tunity for humor. On the morning of his leav- 
ing London for Dover, it is said, he received a 
farewell visit from ati old and tedious aclor 
friend. "What's the matter?" asked' Foote ; 
"why such a rtieful countenance?" "Well, I 
dmi't know how it is." replied the actor, "l.)ut 
I'm not myself today." Foote was not to be 
dcpressecl. "Aren't you?"' he retorted; "then T 
heartily wish you joy; for although I don't 
know who you are today, 1 am sure you must 
be a gainer "by the exchange." — T. P.'s \Veekly.

Mr. G. F. Abbott, a well known British 
author and journalist, who has been with the 
Turkish headquarters in the Tripolitan Hin- 
terland since December last, has reached Lon- 
don. He left the Turks on March 18, and 
after an adventurous journey on foot, in the 
course of which he was lost in the desert, was 
robbed by Arabs, and finally imprisoned by 
an Arab garrison, reached London by way of 
Tunis. ^ 

Speaking to Renter's representative of his 
experiences, Mr. Abbott said : "I have spent 
about four months with the main Turkish and 
Arab forces in the desert round the town of 
Tripoli with a view to writing a book on the 
war. 

"In London I had been warned that the 
Arabs themselves would cut my throat, or 
that the Italians would shoot me .at sight if 
they caught me. Well, the Arabs so far from 
cutting my throat, as soon as they made sure 
that I was not an Italian, treated mc as a 
friend, while J:he Italians never had a chance 
of catching and shooting me, for the \4ery 
simple reason that th.cy dared not come out 
of their trenches. The only real difficulties 
I encountered' Were" those unavoidabtc ra 
desert travel — long marches on foot, on horse 
or on camel back, and, at the beginning, scar- 
city of provisions. 

The English Red Cros.s arrived opportune- 



ly to assist the Turks and German doctors 
already in the field — for fever really proved a 
much ai4re 'formidable enemy than^e Ital- 
4ail fire. Had the Italians followed up their 
occupation of the town of Tripoli by a vigor- 
ous advance along the coast and into the in- 
terior I have no doubt they would have been 
able to possess themselves within a month of 
all the territory as far south as the Djehal 
Mountains. The Turks had lost their prestige 
among the natives by evacuating the capital. 
The Arab recruits had deserted them en 
masse. 

'The Arab populaticin was ready to sub- 
mit to the invader without striking a blow. 
Indeed, in several places, like Azizia and Zan- 
zur, which now are Turkish camps, they had 
hastened to hoist: the white flag. 

Missed Their Opportunity 

"For a few weeks the small Italophile 
])arty of influential natives in the town of 
Tripoli had it all their own way. No resist- 
ance seemed possible. 

"Unfortunately for themselves, the Ital- 
ians missed the psychological moment. .As is 
clear from their subsequent behavior, they 
had come to Tripoli prepared to annex and 
not to conquer, and they wasted their time 
in changing the status of the country on paper 
instead of occupying it with garrisons. 

Their blunder gave the Turks and the 
.Arab patriots time to rally. Fervid appeals 
were made to the population to rise in defence 
of their country and faith. The population 
responded whh admirable spirit. The white 
flags were hauled down, and the first contin- 
gents of Arab volunteers began to arrive from 
the interior. 

"Then came the massacres at Tripoli to 
fan the Arab spirit into fierce flames. From 
that moment submission became as impos- 
sible as resistance had at first seemed to be. 
h>om that moment too, tlie position of the 
Italians has been growing weaker, and more 
volunteers — some on horsebacjc, most on foot 
— are daily flocking up from the south to 
fight under the Sultan's flag, and week after 
week I saw these warriors, who at first had 
little besides bravery to (jualify them as sol- 
diers, learning the rudiments of discipline and 
tactics and the use of modern rifles. 

"The attitude of those men can be summed 
up in one sentence, which is constantly on 
their lips : 'W^e shall go on fighting as long 
as there is one drop of blood left in our 
veins.' That this is not an empty piece of 
rhetoric I am convinced by repeated personal 
experience. I have seen Arabs wounded, two. 
three, four or five times, and each time, im- 
mediately the \vound was healed, returning to 
fight again. From the material point of view- 
also the position of the Turks has been stead- 
ily improving, and that of the Italians as 
steadily deteriorating since the beginning of 
the war. At first the Turks had neither 
money nor pr6visions — a piece of bread or a 
handful of stale dates was about all they could 
find to eat, and m packet of 20 cigarettes that 
normally cost twopence had to be bought for 
two shillings, 

"Gradually contributions from all over the 
Mohammedan world — Turkey in Europe and 
Asia, Egypt, Tunis, .Algeria and so forth — 
began to come in and caravans of all sorts 
began to cross the frontier. Even volunteers 
from Tunis, .Algeria, and the desert beyonrf, 
Chadames came to join us. shouting ''Allah' 
yansur es Sultan" — God save the Sultan. The 
French authorities cannot arrest this stream 
without running the risk of a rebellion of 
their own subjects, so profound is the enthu- 
siasm aroused by this last aftaclc Of the Cross 
oh the Crescent. As a very responsible 
French official in Tunis said to mc: 'Even 
apart from political considerations, it is utter- 
ly impossible for us to guard such an exten- 
sive frontier. If the Italian.*; wish to stop the 
inflow of men. money and food they mus<t 
land an array and guard the frontier them- 
selves.' 

Prime Mutton in tii« Dcttert 

"Besides help from oiitside, this ytkt'm 
rains, after four yeary of drooght, hive been 
of immense benefit to the &|nttng Afftbt. 1 
saw the deaert rtpidly ttin^f^it^iuM Jute 



a beautiful meadow under my eyes, and for 
some months past the flocks of sheep and 
goats that abound in Tripolitania have been 
fattening on luscious grass, with the result 
that I ate better mutton in the hinterland of 
Tripoli than I had ever tasted in the best res- 
taurants of London. And that is not all. The 
Italians have given time to the Arabs of the 
various oases to till and sow their fields, and 
when the crops are harvested in June they 
will afford a supply of food that will make the 
forces, of the Crescent independent of provis- 
ions from outside. 

On the other hand, the Italians, penned up 
in the town and its immediate environs, have 
since all communication with the interior is 
cut off, been all this time obliged to rely en- 
tirely on supplies imported from Europe. 
From the point of view of health also, to one 
sick Arab you will probably fjnd ten Italians 
for while the former are in the open desert, 
the pure air of which counteracts in a large 
measure the causes that make for disease, the 
latter are doomed to breathe the polluted 
atmosphere of an insanitary and congested 
, Oriental town. All these conditions will be 
« accentuated as the months creep on, and the 
summer, with its terrible heat and the suffo- 
cating sirocco, succeeds to the comparative 
coolness of the spring. - 

Had the Italians advanced during the wm- 



ter. when the climatic conditions were in 
their favor, and when owing to the calls of 
agriculture inost of the Arab volunteers were 

obliged to stay at home, they might conceiv- 



ably have not quitted their fortified trenches, 
has not only made advance now impossible, 
but has induced the Arabs to believe that the 
Italians are lacking in courage, 

"Lastl}^ a word as finance. The war costs 
Italy several million francs a day. It costs 
Turkey about £30,000 a month — and most 
of that money is raised by private contribu- 
tions. 

Arab Bravery 

"In the circumstances the struggle, so far 
as the Arabs arc concerned, can continue in- 
definitely. Even if the Porte is compelled by 
troubles nearer home to conclude peace, they 
tleclare that this will make no difference to 
them. 'We will never submit to this invader' 
was said to me a few days ago by a vener- 
able old Sheikh of 67, and he concluded his 
passionate speech with a solemn appeal to 
"Allah, Tip there,' pointing to the blue heavens 
above. Personally, I have seen enough of 
Arab valor — a gallant disdain of death such 
as I do not expect ever to see among Euro- 
peans—to disbelieve in the absolute sincerity 
of this declaration. 

''A similar spirit prevails among the Turk- 
ish officers. Many among them have assured 
me that, in the event of peace between their 
own government and Italy, they will simply 
throw up their commissions and go on fight- 
ing. 

"But whatever the Turks do or fail to do 
matters little. The war is an Arab rather 
than a Turkish war. The Arabs call it jehad 
(Holy War), and the^l^elves mudjaheddin 
(Ploly Warriors). This appellation seems to 
me a little premature. If it were a real jehad 
not one of us Christians would have remain- 
ed alive in the Turkish camp. If my ow^n ob- 
servation, confirmed by many personal ex- 
periences, is not in error, the animosity so 
far is confined to the Italians, and does not 
touch any other European nation. 

"At the same time, I believe, that as the 
war goes on. and the Arabs lose what faith 
still remains to them in Europe's justice and 
sense of fair play, the hatred may easily 
spread and the real jehad break out. Already 
we have had premonitions of such an event 
in the riots which Egypt on one side of Tri- 
politania and Tuni^ on the other have wit- 
nessed. 

"What ])art the Senussi sect are playing 
in this drama it is easier to surmise than to 
state. But I made the acquaintance of one 
of those independent enthusiasts who have 
devoted their lives to preaching a general ris- 
ing of Islam against Christendom in Nor- 
thern .Africa. He came out of the desert one 
day with a rifle over one shoulder (an Italian 
rifle taken in battle at Moms) and over iMc 
other a flag bearing the motto, 'Victory is 
from God, and conquest near.' He assured 
me that the time is approaching when all the 
Musselmans of Northern Africa will rise as 
one man and drive the infidels into the sea. 

"Even if this prediction is not fulfilled lit- 
erally. I am persuaded that the Italians liave 
worked serious prejudice both to themselves 
and to the French. The latter have already 
begun to prepare against this pan-Islamic agi^ 
tation." — London Daily Chronicle.

THE BATTLE OF WATERLOO— BY ' 
SIR WALTER SCOTT 

(From the Life of Napoleon Bonaparte) 

The English army occupied a chain of 
heights, extending from a ravine and villiagc, 
to the right, to a hamlet on the left. Corres- 
ponding to tliis chain of heights there runs 
one somewhat parallel to them, on which the 
French Avere posted. A small valley winds 
!)etween them of various breadth at different 
points, but not generally exceeding half a 
mile. The field is crossed by two high roads 
or causeways both lea<li-ng to Brussels — these 
roads traverse the valley and meet behind the 
village of Mont St. Jean, which was in the 
rear of the British army. The farmhouse ol 
Mont St. Jean, which must be carefully dis- 
tinguished" from the hamlet, was much closer 
to the rear of the British than the latter. 
On the Charleroi causeway, in front of the 
line, there is another farmhouse, called La 
Have Saint, situated nearly at the foot of the 
declivity leading into the valley. On the op- 
l.usite chain of eminences, a village called La 
I'.cllc Alliance gives name to the range oi 
heights. It exactly fronts Mont St. Jeanne, 
and these two points formed the respective 
centres of the French and English positions. 
An old-fashioned Flemish villa called Gou- 
mont or Hougomont, stood in the midst of 
the valley, surrounded with gardens, offices, 
and a wood, about two acres in extent of tall 
l)eech trees. Behind the heights of Mont St. 
lean, the ground again sinks into a hollow, 
"which served to afford some sort of shelter 
to the second line of the British. In the rear 
of this second valley, is the great and exten- 
sive forest of Soigne through which runs the 
causeway Ui) Brussels. On that road, two 
miles in 'the rear of the British army, is placed 
the small town of Waterloo. 

It was three o'clock on the afternoon of 
the 17th when the British came upon the 
field, and took up their bivouac for the night 
in the order of battle in which they were to 
fight the next day. It was much later before 
Napoleon reached the heights of Belle Alli- 
ance in person, and his army did not come 
up in full force until the morning of the 18th. 
Great part of the French had passed the night 
in the little village of Ganappe, and^ Na- 
poleon's own quarters had been at the farm- 
house called Caillou, about a mile in the rear 
of La Belle Alliance. 

In the morning when Nai^oleon had form- 
ed his line of battle, his brother Jerome, to 
whom he ascribed the possession of very 
considerable military tactics, commanded on 
the left; Counts Reille and D"Erlon the cen- 
tre, and Count Lobau on the right. Mare- 
chals Sault and Ney acted as lieutenants- 
general to the Emperor. The French force in 
\he field consisted probably of about 75,000 
men. The English army did not exceed that 
number by the highest computation. Each 
army was commanded by the chief under whom 
they had offered to defy the world. So far the 
forces were equal. But the French had the 
very great advantage of being trained and ex- 
perienced soldiers of the same nation, whereas 
the English in the Duke of Wellington's army 
did not exceed 35.000; and although the Ger- 
man Legion were veteran troops, the other 
soldiers under his command were those of the 
German contingents, lately levied, unaccus- 
tomed to act together, and in some instances 
suspected to be lukewarm to the cause in 
which they were engaged. 

The B'ritish army thus composed was 
divided into two lines. The more experienced 
soldiers were placed in the first line, and in 
the second those troops deemed least worthy 
•of confidence, or those who were weary from 
recent fighting. The cavalry was stationed in 
the rear, chiefly to the east of the Charleroi 
cau.seway. The farmhouse of La Haye Sainte, 
in front of the centre, was garrisoned, but there 
was not titne to prepare it effectually for de- 
fence. The villa gardens and farmyard of 
Hougomont formed a strong advance post 
toward the centre of the right. The whole 
Bfitiph position formed a sort of curve, the 
centre pf whieh wa§ nearest th^ ^ncmy, and 



the extremities, particularly on the right, 
drawn considerably backward. 

The plans of these two great generals was 
extremely simple: the object of the Duke of 
Wellington was to maintain his line of de- 
fence until the Prussians coming up should 
give him a decided superiority of force. They 
were expected about eleven or twelve o'clock, 
but the extreme badness of the road, owing to 
the violence of the storm, deta'jned thom several 
hours later. ~^ 

Napoleon's scheme was equally plain and 
decided, lie trusted, by his usual rapidity of 
att.ick. ID break .and destroy the British army 
before the I'russians should arrive on the field ; 
after which he calculated upun having an op- 
portunitv of destri-iyin^ the I'russians, by at- 
tacking them on tlieir march through the brok- 
en ground interposed betwixt them and the 
British. 

. . . Commencing the action according to*. 
his, usual system, Napoleon kept his guard in 
'■fserve, In order to take opportunity of chang- 
ing with them, when rCfieated attacks of coi« 
umn after column, and squadron after squad- 
ron, should induce his wearied enemy to shovy' 
sonlf 'symptoms of itrftSolution. But M^y 
poteon's movements w^ere not very rapid. His 
army had suffered from the storm even more 



than the English, who were in bivouac at tnree 
in the afternoon of the 17th of June, wbile the 
French were still under march, . -_.ti.5^inie 
was indeed inestimably precious for b oth pa r- 

ties, and hours, nay, minutes, were of in?port- 
■^nce. ^ut ol this Napoleon w.a^-igf^ .aware 
than the Duke of \\'elIington. ' ; -• 

The tempest, which liaM ra;;oil with tropi- 
cal violence all night, abated in the morning; 
but the weather continued gusty and stormy 
during the whole day. Betwixt eleven and 
twelve, before noon, on the memorable i8th of 
June, this dreadful and decisive action com- 
menced, with a cannonade on the part of the 
rreiieli. instantly followed by an attack, com- 
manded by Jerome, on the advanced post rif 
Hougomont.- The troops of Nassau, which oc- 
cupied the wood around the cluueaii. were 
driven out by the French, but the utmost ef- 
forts of the assailants were unable to force 
the house, garden and farmhouses, which a 
party of the guards sustained with the most 
dauntless resolution. The French redoubled 
their efforts and precipitated themselves in 
numbers on the exterior hedge, which screened 
tile garden wall, not, perhaps, aware of the in- 
ternal defence offered by the latter. They 
fell in great numbers at this pinni hv the fire 
'if the defenders, to which they were exposed 
in every direction. The number of their 
troops, however, enabled them, by posses.^ion 
<if the wood, to mask riougonuuM for a time, 
and to push on with their cavalry and artillery 
against the British right, which formed in 
squares to receive them. The fire was in- 
cessant, but without apparent advantage ini 
either side. The attack was at length repelled 
so far that the British again opened their com- 
munication with llougcmont. and that imp jrt- 
ant garrison was reinforced by Colonel Hep- 
burn and a body nf the Guar'ds. 

^leantime the fire of artillery having be- 
c'affie general along the line, the force of the 
French attack was transferred to the British 
I'cntre. It was made with the most desperate 
fury, and received with the most stubborn reso- 
lution. The assault was here made upon the 
farmhouse of St. Jeanne by four columns of 
infantry, and a large mass of cuirassiers, who 
took the advance. . . . The cuirassiers were 
charged by the English heavy cavalry, and a 
combat was maintained at the sword's jioint. 
till the French were driven back on their own 
position, where .they were protected by their 
artillery. The four columns of French infan- 
try engaged in the same attack, forced their 
way forward. . . . and were attacked liy *ne 
brigade of General Pack . . . while at the 
same time a brigade of British hea\-y cavalry 
wheeled round their own infantry, and at- 
tacked the French charging columns in flank, 
at the moment when they were checked '.ly the 
fire of musketry. The results were decisive. 
The Frerw:h columns were broken >vith great 
slaughter, and two eagles, with more than two 
thousand men, were made prisoners, 'j'lie lat- 
ter were .fent instantly off for-Brusscl.?. 

We must perforce omit a little of this 
graphic account, and carry our readers on a 
little faster. The fighting continued furiously, 
and at six o'clock there was but little change 
in the relati\e positions of the two armies, for 
though the French had occupied the wood 
around Hougomont. and the farmhouse of La 
Haye Sainte, the English had recovered none 
of these points. Ten thot!.eand men were, 
however, killed or wounded : some of the for- 
qign regiment^ l^ad given way. .though others 
had shown the most desperate valor. And the 
ranks were thinned ky fugitives. . . . But 
the French, besides losing about fifteen thou- 
sand men, together with a column of prisoners 
more than two thousand in number, began 
now to l?e disturbed by the operation.s of the 
Prussians — and the secret of the Duke of 
Wellington was disclosing itself by its conse- 
quences, Blucher, early in the morning, had 
put in motion Bulow's division, which had not 
been engaged at Ligny, to communicate with 
the English army, and operate a diversion on 
the right flank and rear of the French. But 
although there were only abo,ut twelve; or four- 
teen miles between Wavre and the field of 
\yaterloo, yet the march was, by unavoidable 
circumstances, much delayed. The Prussians 
therefore, instead of reaching the field by half- 
past eleven, Sis they had expected to, were de- 
laycd HilitiLaftti^lour in the «fternoon, when 



the first division under Bulow arrived. They 
were opposed luriously by the J'-rcnch, Init 
continued their march to join the English 
army. 

At half-past six or thereabouts, the second 
grand division of the Prussian army began to 
enter into communication with the British left 
. . . Napoleon had still the means of oppos- 
ing them, and of achieving a retreat. . . . 
His celebrated Guard had not taken any part 

yet in the conflict \ dcsj)erate effort 

for victory, ere the Prussians could act effectu- 
ally, might perhaps ) et tirive the English from 
their i)Osition ; and Napoleon deterniincil tu 
\enture on this daring experiment. 

.\bout seven o'clock Napoleou'.i (luards 
were formed under . . . command ni the 
dauntless Xey. Napoleon told the soldiers 
. . . ihat the Prussians whom they saw on 
the right were retreating before Grouchy. Per- 
haps he might himself believe that this was 
true. The Guard answered, for the last time, 
with shouts of "Vive I'Etn'^ersur! ' and nioved 
resolutely forward, having iof i^tir support 
four battalions of the Old Guard in reserve, 
who stood prepared to protect the advance of 
their comrades. A graudal chanjge llJid tafecn

fix in his miiul exactly how the orchestra wai

There certainly never was such an orchestra 
before. The greatest number of instrumental- 
ists ever ))reviousiy gathered together, it is 
said, was something over two hundred per- 
formers, and here there were over five hun- 
dred. There were serried rows of violins, 84 
firsts ami 74 seconds. There were 52 violas, 
52 'cellos, and, drawn up like heavy 'caiialry, 5,2 
double lia'sses — to say nolhin.g i'»f 70 wood-

optical effect, in the quick passages, of the

A WONDERFUL MUSICAL TRIBUTE 

The inusicians of the Titanic had a magnifi- 
cent. requiem at the .\lbert Hall. London, when 
the great audience 'if more than ten thousanil 
rose and. under the'baton of Sir Henry Wood, 
sang the hymn "Nearer, my God, to Thee." It 
was the closing incident of the Titanic band 
memorial concert, a musical festival on a scale 
never known in the world before, organized 
for the benefit of the memorial to the heroes 
who went down playing on the .great liner. 

The concert was held under the atispices oi 
the Orchestral A.ssociation. and the fealure of 
it was the mighty orciiestra of five hundred 
performers, coinposed of the members of sev- 
en famous London orchestras — the Philhar- 
monic, the Queen's Hall, the London Sym- 
phony, the New Symphony, the Beecham Sym- 
l)hony, the Royal Orchestra, and the London 
(^l)era House bands. This inighty gathering of 
musicians was in turn controlled by the con- 
fluctors of the seven orchestras of which it was 
composed, with the addition of 11 err Mcngel- 
hcrg, who came over specially from Berlin. 
The following is the programme, but. striking

An Extraordinary Sight 
It was a rare afternoon for music-lovers, 
says the London Standard. One heard all 
round expressions of delight and wonder as, 
under the magical batons of the famous con- 
ductors who stepped in succe.ssion up to the 
high dais, the great body of instrumentalists 
was vitalized and made to bring forth ffreat 
volumes of 80t\nd. It reminded one of nothing, 
so much as a man playing on a mighty organ. 
Mr. Thomas Beecham, when he caitie to ih6 
dais and faced the players, had to shade iiw 



.ii'.itii'rii'l 



musical enthu.siasts w;ere shining with .pleas-*' 
«p«." Thtltall was packed with people, a»d 

round the topmost ^gallery stood treble rows of 
Spectators who never moved from their -tHi-- 
ci im fortable positions. 

Herr Meng'elberg's Enthusiasm 

Sir I'.dwjird I'.l.gar had a splendid i.ivaticin 
after conducting his own 'A'ariation.- f(jr Full 
f')rcliestra." The heavier selections folhjweil, 
anil the great hall was filled with a wonderful 
harmonious hoominjg and crashijig- Mr. Lan- 
driii Ivoiiald came after Sir Edward Elgar. 
gelling a irememloos volume of sound out of 
Tchaikovsky's Thiixl Movement from S\-m- 
pliony No. 6 in B miuu'- (Pathetic""). Then 
llerr .Mengelberg conducted the Prelude to 
"Die Meistersinger, "' and when at last the bat- 
talions of fiddles were at rest again he clapped 
his hands xigiH^ousfiy to the iirchcstra. and paid 
more attention to Hhis than to the a|*plause of 
the audience for hiim. :\nd there was a great 
roar from the aurftenrc when the 300 players 
rose as one man to*"lake llieir bow'" in response 
!o llerr Mengelberjj's signal. 

"The Ride of t.lne \'alkyries." conducted by 
•Mr. Thomas Heec'Jvain— and rendered with all 
its inrioiis crashiiigs . a> iiobodv ever heard it 
before — and tlie Overture to "Tanidia;:ser." 
ronrlncled by I I err^-Mengelberg, were two other 
^reat perlormaiice-) v\hich moved the audience 
I.) enthusiasm. .Vnd in the midst of all this 
heavy artillery of music came "Bach's ".'\ria," 
played hy ^40 "strifngs." and coiulucted by Sir 
Henry Wood — an Ruterval of beauty and calm 
wHiirh was reflected i>n the softened faces of 
the great audience. 

.\nd ,-is tlie end i."ime the sin.ging of "Nearer, 
my ('.od, to Thee." The ten thousand people 
rose, and .'-^ir Menry Wood, turning round and 
facing them, led the great chorus in the well- 
known hymn. In the fixst verse the orchestra 
was heard plainly above the singers, but the 
.iiidience gathered confidlence as the hvmn went 
on, and the last verse ernded with a great \-ol- 
nmn of sound — the finest and most impressive 
tribute yet paid to the men and the musicians 
of the Titanic. 



Free your mind of ignorance and be anxious 
to learn the truth, especially in the one thing 
that is needed- lest you fall a prey either to 
skepticism or to errors, Skepticism will make 
you indifferent, and errors will lead you 
astray .so that you will npt find the noble path 
that leads to life eternal.

From the Gospel of Buddha 
Buddha said : 

AH acts of living creatures became bad by 
ten things, and by avoiding the ten things 
they become good. There are three sins of 
the body, four sins of the tongue, and three 
sins of the mind. 

The three sins of the bmly are murder, 
theft and arlullery. 

The four sins of the tongue are lying, 
slander, abuse and.iflle talk. 

The three sins of the mind are covetous- 
ness. hatred "and error. 

Therefore I give \ou these three com- 
mandments : 

Kill not, but have regard for life. 

Steal not, neither do ye rob; but help 
everybody to be master of the fruits of his 
labor. 

Abstain from all impurity and lead a life 
of chastity. 

Lie not, but be truth fid, and speak the 
truth with discretion, not so as to harm, but 
in a loving heart and wisely. 

Invent not evil reports, neither do ye re- 
peat them. Carp not, but look for the good 
sides of your fellow-beings, so that you may 
with sincerity defend them tfainst their 
enemies. 

Swear not, but speak decently and with 
dignity. . * 

Waste not the time with eHipty worda, bat 
speak to the purpose or keep ail<»ltct' 

Covet not, or envy, but f«joict it the io»^

Exodus, 20 

.\nd God spake all these words saving: 
I am the Lord thy God wdiich have brought 
thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the 
house of bondage. 

And thou shall ha\e no other gods before 
Me. 

Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven 
image, or any likeness of anything that is in 
heaven above, or in the earth beneath or in 
the waters under the earth. 

Thou shalt not bow down to them, nor 
serve them, for I the Lord thy God am a jeal- 
ous God visiting- the iniquities of the father 
upon the children unto the third and fourth 
generation of them that hate Me; 

And showing mercy unto thousands of 
ihem (hat Yove me and keep my command- 
ments. 

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord 
ih.v (io<i in vain; fcfr the Lord will not hold 
him guiltless that taketh His name in vain. 

Remember the Sabbath dav to keep it 
holy. ' • 

Six days shalt thou labor and do all thy 
work, 

P.ut the seventh day is the Sabbath day of 
the l,(jr(l thy God; and in it thou shalt not 
do any work, thou nor thy son, nor thy 
daughter, nor thy man-ser\'ant, nor thy ma/i'd-

is within thy gates ; 

F(.ir in six days the Lord made heaven

rested the seventh day; wherefore the Lord 
Idessed the seventh day and hallowgd it. 

Honor thy father and thv mother that tli . 
days may be long in the land which the Lord 
thy God giveth thee. 

Thou shalt not kill. ^ 

Thou shalt not commit adultery. 

Thou shalt not steal. 

Thou shalt not bear false witness against

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, 
thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor 
his ox. nor his ass, nor anything that is thy 
neighbor's.

A Hymn 
As a herdsman guardcth and keepeth

So God day and .tight cheriseth and guard-

O thou compassionate to the poor I seek 
Th)' protection. Look on me with favor.

THE STORY OF FRANCE 

Charlemagne was scarcely in his grave be- 
fore the empire, which he had created with so 
much toil and such iirm statesmanship, began 
lo show signs of breaking up. He made the 
error of dividing liis domitiions between his 
sons Lofjis and Pepin, or at least it seems to 
have been an error, although, perhaps, he real- 
ized that neither of thern was capable of fill- 
ing his plaae, and hoped that by dividing the 
responsibility of government he might impose 
on neither of them a burden too great for them 
to bear. The great family from which he was 
descended seems to have exhausted itself in 
him. Pepin d'HeristaJ, Charles Martel, Pepin 
the Short. Charlemagne, these form a list of 
names suffJdcnt to give glory enough to one 
house, and it is not a matter of surjirisc that 
the sons of Oiarlemagne. brought up amid sur- 
roundings of wealth and power, and witliout 
the need of efiort to secure or maintain them- 
selves in their position, should have failed to 
develop those qualities which pertain to great- 
ness. Moreover, a new danger had begun to 
threaten France. The Northmen hft^ b*^gun to 
seek southern conqests. - 

Who were the Northmen? Duke Hastihgs,.. 
one of the earlier of the Norse invaders, lta4, 
— settled in France and given- hi^j-ail cgiance t e ' ' 
the king. Hence when Duke Rollo came with 
an invading force, Hastings set out to itJWt' 
him. Hastings demanded of Rollo who he was 
and whence he came, and Rollo replied: "We 
are Danes, ajid all. are equally masters among 
us. We have come to drive out the masters of 
this land and subject it to our own country." 
This was in the year 885. "We are Danes." 
and it seems as if we will have to be content 
with knowing this. As to whence the North- 
men and Danes came originally we are at prev- 
ent in ignorance. Certain people prorr^s to 
see in the names Dneiper, Daneiper. Danube, 
Denmark, or the marche.s of the Danes, the 
Don, and so on, proof that a race of men 
crossed Europe in ancient times and left their 
name beiiind them, and others have interpreted 
this to mean that they were of the tribe of Dan, 
one of the lost tribes of Israel. It is not neces- 
sary to express any opinion on this point. The 
people ordinarily called the Danes and those 
commonly spoken of as the Norsemen may 
have been of the same stock. We see no reason 
for supposing otherwise; but be thi.s as it may, 
we find them in the years following the death 
uf Charlemagne making constant invasions of 
France and becoming more and more closely 
identified with the country. 

Although Charlemagije left his enqMre to 
his t\\o sons, it all came ultimatelv into the 
ha 

bonnair. Wc do not use this term now in the 
same sense as it was employed in those days, 
.ind we are told that "the Pious" would have 
better designated his disposition. He \vas 
deeply religious and deplorably weak. When 
the Pope came to crown him emperor, he 
prostrated himself before the feet of the Pon- 
tiff, aji act which greatly alarmed and incensed 
the Prankish nobility, and may be perhaps re_- 
garded a? the first formal recognition of the" 
supremacy of the Pope over all earthly sov- 
ereigns. The Pope had done homage to 
Charlemagne in gratitude for timely assist- 
ance; Charlemagne's son did homage to the 
Pope as a purely voluntary act, uncalled for 
b} any of the surrounding circumstances. To 
the nobles of France, wlio vet cherished the 



Alexander. Born at such an auspicious time, 
the soofhsayers all prophesied a wonderful 
future for the infant' boy, and though Philip 
had become alienated from his wife, on ac- 
count of her fondness for the barbaric 
Orphic rites, and her aloofness toward him- 
self, the birth of his son restored the mother 
to high favor, and the whole country re- 
joiced with Philip, and took part in the fes- 
tivities which were inaugurated in honor of 
the event. • ' 

Plutarch, that inimicable old historian, thus 
graphically describes the person of Alexander: 
"The statues that gave the best representation 
were those of Lysippus (by whom alone he 
would suffer his image ti' be made! those 
peculiarities which many of hii successors 
;ifterward, and his friends used to imitate, the 
inclination of his head a little on one side in- 
wards his slioulder, and his melting eye having 
been expressed by this artist with great ex- 
actness. But Apelles Who drew 'him with 
thunderbolts in his hand, made his complexion 
browner and darker than it was naturall}', lor 
he was fair and of a bright color, passing into 
ruddiness in his face and upon:, his breast. 
Aristoxenus, in his Memoirs, tells a?s ?that .a ■■ 
.tnost agreeable odor exhaled from his ^ip* 
And that his breath ajBd body all -over' wiw so ; 
fr agrant as to p erf ume tfhO ' elothca whiph-he 



him turn at the end of his career, and come 
back rejoicing and triumphing for what he had 
performed, they all burst out mto acclamations 
of applause; and his father, shedding tears, it 
is said, for joy, kissed him as he came down 
from his horse, and in his transport .said, "'Oh, 
my son, look thee out a kingdom equal to and 
worthy of thyself, for Macedonia is too little 
for thee." 



THE CHURCH UNIVERSAL 



swore next him ; the cause of which might 
|>Tobably be the h^ifrjand adjust temperament 
of his body. For sweet smells, Theophrastus 
conceives, are produced by the concoction of 
moist humcuiiliy heit, which is the reason 
that those parts of the world which are driest 
and most burned up, afford spice of the best 
kind and of- the greatest quantity ; for the 
heat of the sun exhausts all the superfluous 
moisture which lies in the surface of the 
bodies, ready to generate putrefaction. And 
this hot constitution, it may bo. rendered 
.Mcxander so addicted to drinking, and so 
choleric. His temperance as to the pleasures 
of the bod)-, was apparent in him in his very 
childhood, as he was with much difffculty in- 
cited to them, and always used them Vith 
great moderation ; lhou"h in. other thin-^s he 
was extremely eager and vehement, and hi his 
love of glory and the pursuit of it. he showed 
a solidity of high spirit and magnanimity far 
above his age." 

The story goes that .\lexander was a .very 

swift runner, and it was desired that he should 

race in the Olympic games, but .A.lexander 

made it a condition that only kings should 

race with him, so the event never took place. 

While Alexander was a boy Persia was 

still considered the greatest kingdom in the 

; two sons. It ali came ultimately mto the n1 world, and we can readily understand how 

'\ !;_' .xf "'^ '"'1^" '•'^ known as the De- >^ie. ambitious boy looked forward to the time 

when he should take the field against the 
Persian army, and win for himself those 
countries over which the great Cyrus and his 
successors had held dominion. So itwas that- 
once when the Persian ambassadors came to 
tlic Macedonian court, and .-Mexander was 
called upon to entertain them in the absence 
of his father, he was very easier with hi> 
questions, as to the forces which the Persian 
king had at his command, of the nature of the 
roads which one must traverse in effecting an 
entrance into certain parts of the country 
with an army, of the character of the king 
himself, and his manner of conducting him^ 
self in battle, these and similar questions 
from the lips of the little boy, greatly sur- 
prised the Persian ambassadors, and when 
they returned to their own country they told 
strange tales of the wonderful son of Philip of 
Macedon i 

Here is another anecdote of Alexander's 
boyhood which illustrates his fearlessness and 
his discernnient as well: 

"Philonicus, the Thessalian. brought the 
horse Bucephalus trj Philip, offering to sell 
him for thirteen talents; but when they wcni. 
into thc_ field to try him they found him so 
very vicious and unmanageable that he reared 
up when they endeavored to mount him, and 
would not so much as endure the voice of any 
of Philip's attendants. Upon which, as they 
were leading him away as wholly useless and 
untractable, Alexander, who stood by, said: 
'What an excellent horsp do they lose, for 
want of address and boMness to manage him.' 
Philip at first took nff notice of what he said, 
but when he heard him repeat the same thing 
several times, and saw he was much ve.ved 
to see the horse sent away. 'Do y.uu reproach,' • 
said he to him, 'those who are' older than 
yourself, as if you knew more, and were better 
able to manage him than they?*' "I could 
manage this horse," replied he, "better than 
others do." "And if you do not," said Philip, 
"what will you forfeit for your rashness?" "l 
will pay," arswered Alexander, "the whole 
price of the horse." At this the whole com- 
pany fell a-laughing; and as .soon as the wager 
was settled among them, he immediately ran 
to the horse, and taking hold of the bridle 
turned him directly 'toward the sun. having, 
It seems, observed that he was disturbed at 
and afraid of the motion of his own sha<lovv; 
then letting him go forward a little, .still keep- 
ing the reins in his hand, and stroking him 
gently when he found him begin to grow eager 
and fiery, he let fall his upper garment softly, 
and with one nimble leap securely mounted 
him, and when he was seated, by little and lit- 
tle drew in the bridle and curbed him without 
either striking or spurring him. Presently, 
when he found him free from all rebelliousnes.<i, 
and only impatient for the 'course, he let hini 
go at full speed, inciting him now with a com- 
manding voice, and urging him also with his 
heel. Philip and his friends looked on at first 
in silence and anxiety for the result, till, seeing 



Prankish tradition that their king was only 
first among his peers and derived his authorit'v 
from their cf)nsent. it seemed an unseemly 
thing that Louis should make it known that he 
owed his crown and authority to the head of 
the Church. By this act the Pope became the 
recognized head of European civilization and 
the real heir to the achievements of Charle- 
magne. That great warrior had attempted to 
revive the ancient Roman Empire. What he 
did was to make possible the existence of the 
papacy as the greatest political institution the 
world has ever seen. 

The Carlovingians. that is the descendants 
t)f Charlemagne, occupied the throne of France 
from 814 to 987. There were in all fourteen 
kings of that House, not one of wdiom, except 
the great Charles, rose even to the level of 
mediocrity in kingship. The most conspicuous 
military event during this dynastv was the 
battle of Fontenailles betw^ee'n the' forces of 
Charles the Bald and Louis the Germanic, on 
the one side, and those of Lothaire and Pepin, 
on the other. Pepin was cousin of Charles the 
Bald, and claimed the crown of Aquitania. Lo- 
thair was son of Louis the Debonnair, and 
chose to throw in his lot with Pepin. J^uis 
the Germanic sided with his brother Charlcsv 
It was purely a family quarrel arising out of 
the disposition made by Louis the Debonnair 
of his empire; yet no less than 300,000 men 
were engaged in the fig-ht at Fontenailles. The 
slaughter was terrific. The opposing forces 
were nearly equal and they fought hand-to- 
hand all day long, The victory, such as it was, 
rested with Charles the Bald, but it was due 
to the ardor of Louis the Germanic more than 
to his own skill or courage.

A French philosopher, who died recentlv, 
left in his will a request that his name and 
memory should not be associated with any 
church, creed or propaganda, but that ,if he 
siK.uld be remembered, it should be as one who 
lived and died in the hope of the salvation of 
luiiTianity through the influence of that senti- 
ment, which, for want of a better name, we 
call love, and the translators of the King James 
Bible called charity. This is not just how he 
expressed it, but only a summarv of a some- 
what long exposition of his wish. He expressed 
regret that the Christian Church is divided into 
sections often antagonistic to each other,- and a 
hope that they_ would soon find a common ob- 
ject and work in unison towards its attainment. 

Recently the Presbyterian .Assembly of 



This will not come all at once, but when it 
comes it will usher in ^ millennial day, and 
perhaps the best sign of the times is that the 
dawn of this day is already tintmg the sky and 
the highest peaks are catching its radiance. In 
the lower lands and in the narrow vallevs there 
is much that is obscure and distorted" by the 
half-lights of the coming day and the shadows 
of the retreating night. But by and bye we 
•shall see things in ,thc full sunshine of Christ- 
like charity, in the rays of which all that is 
hurtful in life will vanish. 



Caiuda declaied in favof 6f union with the 
Methiq^clists and Congregationalists. Details 
have y^ to be settled, but the great thing is 

the recognition of the essential unity of these 
three religious denominations. A good deal of 
time may be necessary to adjust the terms of 
union, for there are extensive property inter- 
ests involved; but if these can not be satis- 
factorily harmonized, and the actual union 
should thereby be indefinitely postponed, a 
great thing has been accomplished. "C'est la 
premier coup qui conte." The first step is the 
main step, for it is a recognition of essential 
unity; it is a step towards a real Church Uni- 
versal. 

It is, perhaps, too much to hope for the 
coming of a time when denominational dif- 
ferences win be obliterated. Deno.minations 
are t..c outcome oi differences of opinion, and. 
it is too much to expect that human nature will 
ever become so altered that we will see eye to 
eye in all religious matters. We find a (liver- 
gencc of view within a short lime after the 
death of Jesus. Some mend^ers'of the new 
cult followed Paul, some Appolos, some Peter. 
The differences between them were not vital, 
and perhaps they really served as a stimulus 
to activity. .\ good deal of unccrtainlv siir- 
rounds the history of the early Church, but 
seemingly it was not until the time of Constan- 
tine that a formal and authoritative dogma was 
laid (lown, wdiich all persons professing to fjc 
Christians were expected to accept. IMie his- 
tory of the Church shows that this attetnpt to 
impose uniformity upon the Christian world 
was not successful. Tlie movement with which 
the names of such men as Wyclif, Luther. 
Loyola, Calvin, Knox. Wesley,' and others, 
that might be tnentioned, arc identified testify 
to the extreme difficulty of securing unitv of 
action in matters founded upon religious' be- 
lief. To what extent the politics oj the times 
may have contributed to broaden the cleavage 
lines created by these movements it is.Ainnccel- 
sary to inquire. We know that in nearly e,verv 
case politics had something to do with the sejj- 
aration of the Church into -camps more or less 
hostile to each other. To come dowMi to the 
vcar of grace 1912. wc do not know how much 
of a part political expediency is playing for 
or against the movement for Welsh disestab- 
lishment. It seems to be true, however, that 
the more the Church is divorced from politics 
the mure easily differences of opinion are over- 
come and the nearer we seem to approach to a 
Church Universal. 

The great necessity of the limes is the 
recognition of a community of purpose among 
the Christian denominations, and this will 
never be fully attained until the selfish ele- 
ment is eradicated from religion. I'he duty of 
seeking individual salvation has been taught 
to the exclusion of our obligation to promote 
the welfare of our fellows. We are taught to 
act as though humanity had met its Waterloo 
at the hands oi the i;>ovvers of evil, and that 
"Sauve qui pent" was the order of the rout. 
We ought to close- up our ranks and realize 
that we each owe the others something. What 
is the mcaninf4 of the unrest in labor circles? 
It is an expre.ssi.iii of the need of humanity for 
sah-ation, no. solvation from the anger of an 
offended Cod, Init of salvation from its own 
errors. Do not let us deceive ourselves with 
the notion that the Church is designed as a 
shield against the anger of Omnipotence. It is. 
or at least it ought to be. an organization 
yvhereby men can be saved from the conse- 
quences of their own errors here and now-. It 
is not necessary to wait for death to tisher us 
into the enjoyment of .salvation through Jesus 
Christ; and it is tniwise to suppose that salva- 
tion to be a condition of ecsta.sy. Jesus Him- 
self "went about doing good. "'and we need not 
ask for a better example. The salvalicn which 
He preached would cure all the ills of society, if 
we would oidy understand it as He taught it. 
The 'Church Universal will recognize that suf- 
fering and want have no proper place in this 
world, that oppression in whatever form is un- 
Christlikc, that we are our brothers' keepers, 
that there is a spiritual life possible here on 
earth, that by faith wc can come in touch with 
Omnipotence, that human guesswork at the 
secrets of Infinite Wisdom must of necessity 
only be in part true, and that Love, which is 
not a mere sentiment hut th^ recognition of 
what lit due to others expressed in rtie tvety- 
aay a^larrs of life, is the fuffinfng of ** — 



EARTH'S FIRST ARTISANS 

I. ntil quite recently nothing definite wa.^ 
known of the prehistoric ages; we had to t)e 
content to judge of them by deductions more 
or less correct, more or less imaginative; in 
short, we were ticpendent on the hypotheses 
of the scientists. It is no longer so; we now 
have definite knowledge which becomes daily 
fuljer and clearer. 

We see. then, the dawn 0# a tie^ -and real 
science, and a new day appears on the horizon. 

Since the beginning of the twentieth cen- 
tury, Les Eyzies, a little hamlet in France, 
about fifty miles from Bordeaux, has become 
to a great extent the c apital and c entre of the 



scientific wm^i M-M^m fact, beside the Ve- 
zere, about ten' miles from Les Eyzies, that 
thirty-two prehistoric grottoes have been 
brought to light. Picture to yourself a series 
of openings in the face of the mountain over- 
looking the river. Local curiosity had never 
dri\-en the inhabitants to penetrate far into 
these caves, until in search of kaolin (porcelain 
clay) they advanced little by little into the in- 
terior of the rock. These cavities then jiroved 
each to be an entrance to a long natural tun- 
nel, a kind of irregular tube winding its way 
through the heart of- the rock, a mile or more 
in length, now high and narrow, leading into 
one or more spacious chambers ^-ith smooth 
walls and ceilings. 

The caverns were at once the dwelling- 
places._ the workshops, an.d the tombs of the 
men of the stone age. There they were born, 
lived, and were buried: and, like the inhabitants 
i>f Merculaneum and Poinpeii. they have left 
the well-nigh indelible imprints of their exist- 
ence at the moment when a cataclysm abrupt- 
ly closed their career. Here truly may the 
archeologist reap a harvest to his heart's con- 
tent, discosering and deciphering the enigmas 
of the past, ^^■hat wonders the ages have 
heaped up pell-mell within ! Arid when we 
remember that for twelve thousand years or 
more these treasures have remained hidden, or 
rather undiscoverefl. we can appreciate their 
trcmcuflous historic value. 

Here have been brought to light skeletons 
by the hundred, so well preserved that by the 
teeth one may judge of their age and sex: and 
by the configuration of the head, and particu- 
larly of the bony case of the skull, we may 
know the status, more or less advanced, of the 
inhabitants of such and such a grotto. Thence 
a complete classification, known to the Frencii 
experts under tl>e names of .Aurignacian, lolu- 
trcan. Magdalenian, corresponcling to the 
places and approximately to the epochs which 
they named Old Paleolithic. Upper Paleoli- 
thic, and .Xeolithic. that is. the age of polished 
stone. Here are also the workshops with their 
stone benches found in position, and in addi- 
tion thousands of objects, from a simple bone 
needle, so finely chiseled that one could use it 
today, to weapons of defence, and even neck- 
lets and other ornaments; but above all— the 
wonder of wonders!— mural paintings, sculp- 
tures in relief, men. animals, birds, which leave 
no doubt as to the origin of the artist and his 
epoch. One of the grottoes alone, the Font de 
Gaume. contains forty-tw^o paintings, perfectly 
clear and distinct, the subject was first en- 
graved with flint in the wall, then- afterward 
painted with natural ochre mixed with warm 
blood. In addition there have been found 
unique objects, such as a lamp, and even hier- 
oglyphs so much the more valuable that they 
are primitive in the broadest sense of the word. 
In conclusion be it said that we. find our- 
selve.s factf to face with a man who,' in struc- 
ture.' is perhaps more akin to the monkev than 
to the man of today, but whose skill, born of 
necessity, has truly created many things of 
which we arc but the imitators; and what is 
more, we sec here a divine spark, shining in 
man alone to distinguish him from the brute. 
This ancient man was clearly an artist. With 
how much reason, then, may we say that cen- 
turies count for nothing in the immensity of 
Time!— Alfred Heriig, in Munsey's. 



BRITAIN ANIJ> FRANCE 

A section of the French press gives echo 
to articles which have lately been appearing 
in various English journals on the possibility 
or the desirability of a formal alliance v/ith 
France, writes the Paris correspondent of The 
London Times. I am not convmced. however, 
that the prolonged discussion of this subject 
is at the moment particularly opportune. The 
French pj-ess mostly confines itself to repro- 
ducing the articles in question, and the com- 
ments of The Tiemps recently, while on the 
whole encouraging, simply amount to a coMr- 
teous suggestion that Great Britain ttittat be 
left to consider these matters at her leisure 
from all points of vit^. U may b^ pt^nted 
out in passing that tht Sritish and French 
Governmenta art atlU mimed with Spafn in 
a dificnssion of, fibrritd^ jorit^gtincttts is 
Moroeco. and th«¥ Appear ta have es^rlaieed 






tion of Tangier has likewise still to be settled, 
and both these questions are of very great 
importance from both the British and the 
French standpoint. The one question is con- 
cerned with engagements towards Spain 
which both Great Britain and France have in- 
curred and which they are bound to fulfil. 
Ihe other question, that of Tangier, is one 
which concerns British and Spanish interests 
of a vital character. Both ([uestions— the 
, control <jf the Medieterranean and part of the 
Atlantic seaboard of Morocco by Spain and 
the internationalization of Tangier— are at 
the ba.se of ihc^ whole Movoccan policy of 
Ureat Britain, Their'-^settlement ought not to 
bo complicated by any inopportune discussion 
of future forms of Anglo-French relations in 
general. 

It should be plain, however, that .A.nglo- 
French relations in the Mediterranean and in 
the Near East are not yet sufficiently dear to 
jpxm a basis for the devehjpment o'f the en- 
-^j^nte into an alliance. No one in England 
nas* so far. as; I know, proposed to leave, as 
certain French journals have suggested that 
It was proposed to leave, the naval defence of 
Egypt, Malta, the route to India and British 
interests in the^, Neac ^^Eaat-^Bolely to the 
French f le et . .. . jB . iritiDh a ^d-Fretich interests in^ 
Turkey are stiU far from having been brought 
iotoline. _ Indeed, it i^ a testimony to the 
soundness of the entente cordiale that their 
-"frequent divergence has not prejudicially af- 
fected the general relations of the two coun- 
tries. The defence of the road to India, of 
Eg)^pt, and of the British position in the Med- 
iterranean manifestly represents a body of 
interests so vast that it cannot be summarily 
disposed of in political .speculations about the 
future basis of Anglo-French relations. 

Strategic questions regarding the relations 
of the two Powers in the event of war on the 
Continent of Europe are clearly unsuitable for 
public discussion and must be left to the 
military authorities of the two countries, or 
at any rate to specialists. The position of 
France as regards Germany would, to say the 
least, not be improved l)y canvassing the 
means of Anglo-French military co-operation 
on the basis of British military forces which 
it would take years to create.' It is as well 
known in Germany as in England and France 
that, in certain eventualities, the existing 
British forces would co-operate with the 
French on land as well as on sea. 1'he discus- 
sion of the co-operation by British land forces 
which are not yet in existence seems however 
to be putting the cart before the horse. If the 
policy of creating the British Army on the 
continental method had been, or was being, 
carried out, it would be time enough from the 
political and diplomatic point of view to dis- 
cuss the method of employing it in certain 
eventualities. 

Prolonged public discussion of the possi- 
bility of an .\nglo-French alliance on a basis 
which does not yet exist w^ould, in the prob- 
able c\cnt oi a failure to achieve any practical 
result, produce a sense of disappointment, 
even of irritation, in sections of French opin- 
ion where the pecujiar circumstances of Eng- 
land are not yet fully appreciated. In Ger- 
many it would produce a feeling of exultation 
and at the same time give a pretext both 
for a further increase in armaments and for a 
still more aggressive foreign policy towards 
Great Britain and France in turn. The exist- 
ing entente cordiale is much more effective as 
a deterrent than would be any alliance except 
upon the basis of overwhelming land forces 
which are not at present available. Finally, 
the argument that a formal alliance would 
clear the air and enable us all to see exactly 
vvhat forces we could put in the field is de- 
lusive. It is notorious ■ that at the present 
moment no one in France has any idea what 
Russain force Avould be available on the east- 
ern frontiers of Germany if France were en- 
gaged in war. and Russia is France's formal 
ally. It cannot be .seriously proposed that 
England should take upon herself duties 
which Russia does not seem to have given 
any definite undertaking that she would or 
could invariably fulfil.

The district around Land's Ptnd is pos- 
sibly better known of recent times than was 
the case a decade or so a^n. llnwcxcr well- 
known it may l)econie it is doubtt'vil whether 
the interest will die out or the source become 
sterile of its legends arnl ^niuyglinj^- talcs. 

It is presumed that the. district is better 
known today. The action of the Government 
authorities who suj^fjested that there ought to 
be a policeman on one oi the rocky uninhab- 
ited isles off Laijds l'",nd will no doubt as.'^ist 
in bringing; it before the j)ublic mind, i'os- 
sibly it was thought adsisable to [M-otcct this 
Island from the ghosts of smugglers, or from 
those kings who v\^ere I)uric(l close by and not 
cremated as was the usual custom, with their 
golden boats beside them, in t)rflcr that they 
might some day rise as they had li\-ed dressed 
in their golden arms and sail away. 

A story such as this is connected with the 
Cheesewring or rather \vith a barrow ne.ir by. 
Archeological battles have raged rountl this 
singular pile of granite blocks It seems liow- 
ever fairly certain that tlie_\- were not rock 
idols as has been suggested, but were so 
named owing to their similarity to the press 
used in making eider. 

The Trethevy cromlech or dolmen serves 
as an ecxellent object for theorists to expound 
upoiv Many have been the effort- to acccnnit 
for the method einployed to poise such a col- 
ossal capstone, a feat which would tax the 
skill of modern engineers. Some ha\c e\en 
illustrated their theories wdth wonderfully in- 
tricate diagrams which it is douljtful if the 
ancient would have understoiMl e\'en if he 
had ^'er heard of them. A comparatively 
simple method is here suggested, and so far 
a-s the writer is aware for tlie. first time. To 
a people to whom and in an age when time 
was no material object, and human life and 
suffering still less it is conceival)le that an 
earth road was formed from some distance 
away rising at a very gradual gradient till 
tHe summit and final resting place was reach- 
ed. It is a very elementary princii)le of me- 
chanics that very heavy weights may be mov- 
ed if the friction l)e overcome by rollers place<i 
thereunder. Consetpiently the suggestion is 
made that up such roads of very gradual in- 
cline, with the aid of log rollers were pushed 
these capstones. The earth was afterwards 
removed. This theory seems to the writer 
a reasonable one, how else can the building 
of such colossal monuments as the h'gyptian 
pyramids be explained. The illustration 
shows one of the corners of the capstone 
|)ierced by a round hole, and without any de- 
sire to enter into the maelstrom of 'notable 
archeological battles which have raged around 
this particular hole it is suggested that this 
was simply a means of attachment to better 
enable the greater number to apply their force 
thereto by pulling. There seems little doubt 
that the capstone once in place the erection 
was intended and used fv...- a grave. 

The words Ancient Dritcn suggest all that 
is strong and large in mankind, am! many 
have written on the causes of the deteriora- 
tion in the physique of the present day man. 
The Ancient British huts at Bosporthcnis. the 
most perfect specimen of a beehive hut in 
England, suggests however that either the 
dwellers entered on their hands and knees, or 
that they were singularly small men. In- 
deed we have every reason to believe that 
men are today larger than ever, for at one 
of the pageants held recently it was desired 
to obtain for the players mediaeval suits of 
mail, and the.se were found in almost every 
case to be too small and that larger ones had 
to be fashioned to fit the modern man. The 
doorway ia question facing .southwest wa.s 
only three feet in height. The interior of the 
hut was divided into two chambers, and the

ing. each stone of the wall being corbelled over 
the one under until a final single capstone 
crowned the edifice. Whether the whole was 
covered with turf, as the case in the Fogou 
or cavern at Treewoof. Lamorna, the writer 
does not know, but he can imagine himself on 
windy nights so ])rotecting himself were he 
an inmate. 

When last in Cornwall the writer met one 
called Luther, wh. > asserted that he wasJ de- 
scended from that worthy fisherman smu""- 
gler, who, doubtless a little the worse form 
indulgence following one of his escapades not 
connected with the fishing part of his dual 
career, asserted that he had awakened from 
a (la_\ dream to find a mermaid stranded in a 
pool left by the retreating tide. This ancestor 
was of course quite at his ease with mermaids 
and as all Cornish people know to find a mer- 
maid is a lucky thing. So Master Luther with 
easy tact api)rnached the weeping mermaid 
with the offer that for substantial reward he 
would return the luckless one to the sea. To 
Luther and his descendants were given valu- 
able remedies against sickness and charms 
against evil. 

Not far from JJayle on the main road .from 
Penzance to Redruth is the typically Cornish 
\ illage of St. Erth built entirely of granite, 
which is found lying handy in cverv field. 

'I'he illustration shows an excellent ex- 
ample of the fast dying out drywalling, local- 
ly termed hedges. These hedges are built of 
stone, bonded together in such a manner that 
they are as secure and permanent as if mor- 
tar had been used. The church tower of St. 
l*'.rth \i'n'ti some idea of the sizes of stone 



ill 






j.n?ed in the buildings of the perpendicular 
period. 

A few miles from St. Erth is St. Ives on 
its beautiful arc of bay of "Ihake" fame. The 
amusing story runs that distressing ravages 
were caused to the fishers of St. Ives ^y an 
enormous hake^ I5y way of retaliation these 
worthy fishers caught this naughty hake and 
whipped him souhdly, and after giving him 
worldly counsel and advice returned him to 
the deep that he might mend hi$ .ways, ami 



ant sunshine, for lapk of a stone hedge of 
sufficient height. For they had noticed t^at 
when the cuckoo was heard the weather w as 
always sunny, they therefore thought to keep 
the .sunshine and the cuckoo together by 
building a wtU around the latter. If anyone 
he anxious to gain eternal enmity let him ask 
a native of Zennor "Who caught the cuckoo?" 
Amongirt the most ancient eccles^iastical 
remains in England are the abounding .stone 
crosMs wjticfa are thought to hav*. served

Among tho.se illustrated that of St. Paul is 
peculiar. The church' was built by the Span- 
iiirds of Armada times. ^ 

The wayside cross near St. Buryan is of 
another type and is believed to be unique in 
that it is, circular, that in St, Buryan church- 
yard is again unique being mounted on five 
steps and suggests an outside pulpit, which it 
is believed to have becii.

PUBLIC EXECUTIONS 



Whereas our condemned murderers pay the 
full penalty in greatest privacy, the French as- 
sassin has still to face not only the kriife but 
the ordeal of publicity. Two soldiers were last 
week executed at Le Mans for the murder of 
atv.old farm-woman. It i,s said that the people 
from the surrounding villages flocked in hun- 
dreds to the town to gloat over the spectacle, 
the cafes did a roaring trade all night, and a 
large body of troops were brought in to keep 
order. The appearance of these miserable men 
were signals for outbursts of popular execra- 
tion by the dense mob of onlookers. One is 
reminded of a witticism attributed to George 
Selwyn on an occasion when he was asked by 
Charles Fox whether he had been to watch the 
execution of a namesake of his at Tyburn that 
morning, "No, Charles," said Selwyn with 
the inimitable drawl that added piquancy to his 
bon-m6ts, "I make a point of never attending 
rehearsals."-— T. P.'s Weekly.

Misunderstood though he" was in the early 
stages of his experimental work, carried "ut 
in collaboration with his brother; unajipreci- 
ated at first even by his own countrymen. Wil- 
bur Wright, in the brief space of nine years, 
saw the flying machine develo]) under his 
bands and those of his brother from a crude 
gliding mechanism into a great, motor-driven 
artificial bird; lived to see the realization of a 
dream that has haunted inventnrs ever since 
the world l)ep;an ; lived lo sec himself honored 
by kings and potentates, legislators and scien- 
tists, statesmen and artists the world over, 
says The Scientific American. Humlrccis nf 
years hence, it may be, the conquest nf the air, 
attended as it has been by the flishcartening 
defeat of hundreds of misguided men and the 
sacrifice of many lives, will be deemed of less 
material importance than the invention of ihe 
telegraph or the introduction of Besscnier steel, 
^'et if we measure the significance of navi- 
gating the air in an aeroplane by the difficul- 
ties which have accompanied the building of 
the really first [practical heavier-thau-air ma- 
chine who will deny that 'Wilbur Wright must 
be accorded the honor of standing in the annals 
of invention beside Morse. I'ell, Fulton, iiesse- 
mcr. Watt, .\rkwright, in a word, beside the 
men who'haAC given us the machinery of mod- 
ern civilization? 

"~" His was mdeed a singular par$qnaljty. i^ean, 
angular, reticent, he had nothing of the out- 
ward brilliancy that one would a.^sociate with 
the solution of one of the most difficult me- 
chanical problems that ever confronted the 
human mind. .Scientific training in the acce])t- 
cd sense of the term, he had little. "S'ct his 



whole !'e;i; of 



\vli(ilc attitude toward 



the invention' with which his name will 1)C for- 
ever associated, was cssentiallv scientific, lie 
v.evcv boasted. Like a true scientist, he stated 
the facts almost as colorlessly as if he were ex- 
pounding a mathematical formula. 

Yet scientific aid he and his brother cer- 
tainly received from the late Octave Chanute, 
that noble-minded pioneer who gave .s||^ gener- 
ously out of his rij)c experience. J I was he who 
introduced the two l)rothers to the scientific 
Vr'orld by inducing them to read a paper' now 
liistoric, before the Western Society of Ku- 
jyineers: it was he who watched their initial e.x- 
j-'criments, and he who vouched for their suc- 
cess at u time when the world was still in 
doul5t. 

\\'hen the news was first flashed around 
the world that two bicycle makers of Dayton, 
Ohio, had invented an aeroplane with which 
they had actually been making more or less 
public flights, no otic would believe it. It 
seemed incredible that the .-\merican news- 
paper reporter, who had been known to climb 
down chimneys in the effort to pry into the af- 
fairs of other j^eople, had allowed so important 
:'n event lo i)ass uidieralded for months, and 
i-till more incredible that the fir-t practical fiy- 
ing- machine should have been invented by two 
obscure mechanics of the Middle West.' f-fad 
not Maxim sjicnt $125,000 on the nroblem and 
given up its stdution as an impossibility? I lad 
not Langley, after years of experimenting, 
been compelled to abandon his work because 
the Government refused to asdst him further? 
Had not Lilienthal and Pilcher lost their lives 
:n gliders? Later, when the reporters began 
t^) ap]5ear and the too curious puldic became 
uncomf(.)rtal)ly curious. Wilbur and his brother 
rstired to Ixilty fiawk. on the inaccessible sand 
dunes of which they had carried on their early 
v.ork. Photographers, hidden in bushes, 
brought back tiny view-; of an aeroplane in the 
a:r— the first evidence of the flying machine'"* 
advent, but not evidence of the real construc- 
tion of the wonderful machine. Not tintil 190H. 
when Orville in America, and Wilbur in 
France, performed the first really public flights 
in pursuance of contract obligations. \vas the 
construction of their machine really undei- 
stood. 

Like all great inventions, it provetl amazmg- 
Iv sim])le. There was the trusset; frame thai 
Chanute had first used with success; there was 
the horizontal rudder, jdaced forward as 
Maxim had done; there was a means of C(jn- 
trolling the lateral lialance by changing the im- 
pact angles of the win^s. ;i method jjroposed 
years before; tlic'-e was the vertical rudder ob- 
viously essentia! for directing the machine in 
a horizontal plane: and there were the sled 
rtmners that .\der and others had proposed. 
Xot a single element in the machine was abso- 
lutely novel: \et the machine as a whole wa«i 
the most novel mechanism that could be im- 
agined. The same may be said of every great 
invention. .Morse, Bell, Fulton, and the rest, 
all of them seized the abandoned devices ol 
their predecessors and combined them into on- 
erative inventions. Tu the w<H-ld at large il 
seems but a small thing to step in this main)r 
from failnre to success ; yet only a master mind 
succeeds in making an operative combination 
out of old elements. In an appreciation such 
as this, it is out of place to comment upon the 
originality of the two brothers who gave ii-i 
the flying machine. Some day^ when a real 
history of the art of flying is written, when the 
legal bickerings that now befog the is.*ues arr» 
well behind us, it will be realized thai the iu- 
verttipn of the flying machine differed psychf»- 
logically in no important respect from the in- 
vention of other great mechanisms; that in- 
v.fiition always consists not in dreaming, or in 
writing reams of paper on possible ways of fly- 
Jii|f or in drawing countle.«»<* designs of possi- 
bfc operative soaring devices, but in doing, in 
cesMlessly experimenting, ia risking health 
fend nfe. I 



it is not without significance that the fly- 
ing machine should have been ileveloped, not 
by an engineer or a traineil physicist, Imt by 
two men who worked with ihcir hands. 'V\n\> 
the popular conception of the true inventor is 
justified, and thus the stories of great inven- 
tions is enriched by still another tale in which 
the hero is not a university professcn- or a 
mendier of the Royal Societv, but a simple, yet 
vvondcrfully ingenious man who patiently 
works by cut-and-dricd methods and succeeds. 

That Wilbur ami ()r\ille Wright should 
fashion their machine with ihcir own hands, 
that they should make even their own motor, 
conforms with the tradition- m' invention. 
I'.very stmt, t-\ery wire, every piece of spruce 
that entered into I he machine's constructiiMi 
was manipulated by the brothers themselves. 

.\ sportsman in the true sciise of the word' 
Wilbur Wright was not. Piy thai we dfi not 
lue.in that he was totally incapable of enjoying 
the pleasurable side of fb'ing. That he experi- 
enced all the thrill of a flight through the air, 
he gave ample proof in a brief article written 
by him and his brother for The Scientific Am- 
erican some vears airo. Rut a snortsmnn in 
the sense that he loved to pit machine against 
m.-uhine ftir the mere sake of racing, regardless 
of personal risk, he was not and had no de- 



sire to be. He trever placed his own life in 
jeopardy more than the exigencies of flying 
ordinarily demanded; nor would he or his 
brother permit the aviators in their employ to 
do so. No man realized ttiore keenly than he 
how enormous is the pernonal risk involved 
even in ordinary flight ; no man took such pre- 
cautions as he to mitigate th<»se risks. The 
meticulous care with vvliich he examined every 
stpiare inch o.f his machine before each flight, 
nnist have seemed ridiculous to those who 
watched him and who fancied that flying was 
no more dangerous than aulomobiling. The 
need of care, too. seemed belied by the matter- 
of-fact way in whic'li he made his personal pre- 
parations. He never troubled to don an elab- 
orate flying ii|arment; he wore no goggles; he 
made none of those theatrical preparations 
which the public has come to expect of airmen. 
He slipped a pair of bicycle clamps around his 
trousers, pulled his tourist cap farther down 
on his lyird-Iike face, and placed his hands on 
the levers. That was all. 

.Supreme self-confidence and yet not a trace 
of vanity was one remarkable characteristic. 
Deeply religious, too. he was. a trait whicli is 
to be expected of the son. of a bishop and the 
descendant of Puritans. lie carried his re- 
ligious beliefs far. He himself never took part 
in a flying contest on a Sunday nor woidd he 
permit his aviators to do so. .-Xt Belmont 
Park and at other meetings he was perfectly 
willing to lose thousands of dollars on that ac- 
count alone. Tie never spoke or wrote of his 
work without mentioning his brother. For 
that reason it is difficult — we have found it 
impossible — to write of him alone.

formed the ceremony. The Melbourne, which 
was designed by Sir Philip Watts, chief con- 
structor of the Navy, is }5^">ft. xoin.^ovcr all in 
length, 430ft. between peri)endicnlar's, and 4';fl.

draught is about 5600 tons. She carries ciglit 
6-inch guns^ has two broadside torpedo tubes, 
and stowage for seven trirpedocs. The ship, 
which will be manned by a1)OUt -joo officers and

Significance of the Occasion 

Captain Muirhead Collins, in returning 
thanks for the .Australian Government, said: 
"Wc are present today at the launch of the 
second of the cruisers for the navy of the Coni- 
monwealth of .\ustralia. In the lady who has 
named her we are fortunate in having a daugh- 
ter of one of our most esteemed and public- 
spirited citizens of the State of South Australia, 
Mr. Robert Rarr-Smith. I can only add my 
congratulatious on the success of the launch 
and the manner in which Mrs. P.r.-'.und has dis- 
charged her duties as godmothei. .\s regards 
the vessel herself, nam^l after the city of Mel- 
bourne, the capital of the State of \'ictr,ria, v/e 
ha\-e no donbt she will worthily represent the 
skill and the workmanship of this vcll-estab- 
lishcd firm of shipbuilders. 

"'i'he significance of the occa.'^ion of out 
gathering here today lies in the fact that the 
vessel represents a new. a progressixe, and a 
definite naval policy undertaken by one of the 
great Dominions of the Crown. Previou-^ly in 
.Australia we had certain attempts at provisio:i 
of local naval defence. Some of the States had 
little naval fh:)tillas and naval reserves, and a 
combineid c^Jltribution was made to the Im- 
perial Government for the maintenance of a 
seagoing squadron on the .station. These obli- 
gatiuilS' were' a-bsorbed by th^ Federal~Govern- 
ment, but in all this there was no attempt at 
a broad and comprehensive naval policy that, 
whilst satisfying national aspiration and the 
position of a self-governing community woidd 
point the way to a common sharing of Imperi- 
al obligations. Opinion had not yet matured 
on ibis great question either in the old country 
or in the new. 

"'J'he prcddem oi naval defence of a greaf 
Empire, scattered or se!)arated as are the con- 
stituent p.iits Mf ,,nr.^. is one of the most diffi- 
cult that sLalesnien can be called upon to solve; 
and naval defence and foreign policy are inter- 
woven. The na\a! developments of recent 
years and the concentration of the British 
Fleet in home waters have, as Mr. Churchill 
has recei]tly emphasized in a notable speech, 
advaiiced the solution and pointed the way 
to a division of labor between the mother 
country and her daughters. From the last Im- 
perial Cfinferencc and the Naval Conference 
that immediately preceded it. we have a point 
of dc[)ariure. In consultation with the Aus- 
tralian represenlati\-es a naval policy was out- 
lined, and the connection between naval de- 
fence and foreign policy recognized by the ad- 
mission of the Dominion ministers to the inner 
councils of the British Foreign Office. 

Great Works on Hand 

"The present Australian Government lost 
no time in taking action. At their request one 
of our most experienced admirals, Sir Reginald 
Hender.son. in conjunction with Captain Ha- 
worth Booth, \isited_.Australia. and elaborated 
a complete schemg of naval organization., 
which the Federal Government is actively car- 
rying out. I desire to press on your consider- 
ation how much .-\ustralia merits your sympa- 
thetic interest and encouragement in the great 
task in which she is engaged. 

"'Po build and to maintain a na\-y in the.se 
days is indeed a work of great labor and of 
great cost. .Australia is doing this when her 
population is only four and a-half millions, 
scattered o\er a continent larger than Europe 
without Russia, and when she is faced with 
all the great uudertakitigs involved in the 
settlement and development of this enormous 
territory. She is now taking in hand such 
greal works as two great continental railways 
and the still greater and unparalleled task of 
setthug and developing with a white race a 
tropical region, the Northern Territory, ex- 
ceeding in area the whole area of the Union 
of South .Africa. In face of all these gigantic 
tasks, a|>art from the orderly progressive 
settlement and large works of irrigation in a 
new country, the Australian people not only 
establish a scheme of military defence based 
on national service and training from the 
\oulh from twelve years of age upwards, but 
courageously, determinedly, and with the 
fullest sense of the difficulties before them set 
themselves to construct a navy to consist of 
modern cruisers, torpedo boats, and sub- 
marines, and to establish, organize and main- 
tain all the sid)sidiary requirements of train- 
ing establishments, dockyards and factories. 
They do this not otdy from a sense of local 
requirements, but also of Imperial obliga- , 
lions, and therefore I appeal with confidence 
to all present here today and to all the Eng- 
lish people to say. 'Well done and God speed 
Australia.'" (Cheers). ' '

THE VICJTOMA COLONIST 



h 



hsih®r FiroMem ^Mttiioini 



One of the most iiiteresting solutions for 
jindustrial unrest appears in the Pall Mall, 
the suggestion of a writer who signs himself 
■'Nuraa Min," The scheme is daring and ef- 
fective, and readers will form their own opin- 
ion as to whether it would answer in actual 
practice. 

"The task of ascertaining existing custom, 
of modifying and improving it, is too com- 
plicated for legislation, fur any Legislature," 
says the writer. "It can only be carried out 
by the investigations, findings, and judgments 
of a properly constituted, fully organized sys- 
tem of industrial courts. Legislation is first 
needed to establish the courts, to invest them 
with the necessary powers, to indicate the 
principles which they are to follow, to deter- 
mine their procedure, and to set up the sanc- 
tions by which their judgments are to be en- 
forced. But the courts once established, they 
must be independent of the Legislature. Their 
salaries and pensions must be on the Consoli- 
dated Fund; they must hold office, quam- 
diu se bene gessetint, during good behavior; 
they might be removable on an address of 
both Houses of Parliament, but, short of that, 
their judgment must not be subject to Parlia- 
mentary criticism. On no other conditions 
can they be free to hold the balance even 
between the m?n and the masters, the trades 
jand the nation. Nothing' short nf calamity 



national business; the coal mines, the rail- 
ways, the transport workers, those concerned 
in the service of gas, water and electricity. 
That would be quite enough to begin with. 
When procedures and principles had been 
settled other trades would come in voluntar- 
ily with the permission of the Court, until 
the whole question of wages came within the 
jurisdiction. 

How Trade Unionism Could Help 

"The importance and value of Trade 
Unions would not be in any way diminished; 
though the scope of their operations would be 
changed, they would have plenty to do with 
preparing their cases for the negotiating 
boards, for the High Court, or for the Courts 
of Summary jurisdiction, and in watching 
over the carrying out of the judgments of the 
Court. The custom of collective bargaining is 
too deeply rooted to be discarded; moreover, 
such a system of industrial justice could 
hardly be carried out without the aid of the 
workmen's organizations. ,,,../ 

That such propositions are revolutiotia^, 
admits 'of no question; but they are revolu- 
tionary in the better sense of the term. That 
they will not be adopted except in the face of 
calamity, Or while the memory of calamity, re- 
mains burnt into our minds seems to me also 
beyond question. 



will move Parliament to set up such courts. 
Is the present calamity sufficient, or do we 
need more drastic lessons? 

—--"■The Judgment of the Courts 
''The judgments of the courts are to be 
based on custom, and among salutary customs 
is to be reckoned the custom of collective 
bargaining. The first stage in any proceed- 
ings would be to bring together the properly 
accredited representatives of the masters and 
the men of the particular trade by suitable 
districts, and to thresh out the question at 
issue in the presence of a negotiator appoint- 
ed by the iiigh Court of Lidustrial Justice. 
An abstract of the proceedings would be kept 
by the negotiator, who would have a suitable 
clerical staff at his disposal. This abstract 
-should be checked from time to time by both 
parties to the negotiation, and finally approv- 
ed by them when the negotiation was com- 
pleted. Any objections to the record^ advanc- 
ed by either side should be lodged in writing 
at that time. If a working agreement were 
reached, the agreement would be forv^-arded 
to the High Court, who, after scrutinizing the 
agreement to sec that it was clear, consistent 
and sufficiently complete, would enter judg- 
ment accordingly. If any point seemed doubt- 
ful, provisional judgment migiit be entered 
until the puint referred had been settled by a 
supplementary agreement. Thenceforward, 
any violation of the agreement would be an 
offence, punishable as contempt of court, and 
in such other way as the Legislation niight 
ordain. 

If Agreement Could Not Be Reached 

"If agreement were not reached, or agree- 
ment were only partial, the negotiator would 
report to the High Court, and lodge his at- 
tested record, of which both parties would 
have a copy, and that record would rank^ as 
evidence in the further proceedings, subjc -t ^' 
to any objections lodged at the proper time. 
The High Court would then proceed to try ' 
the case in public, for the most part, though 
it CQuld hold private sessions if confidential 
matters were to be shown in evidence. It 
would have two assessors to assist it. one 
from each side, familiar with the details of 
the trade; it would have skilled accountants 
and calculators at its disposition ; it would 
call witnesses, examine books, and hear advo- 
cates, professional or otherwise. It would have 
to lay. down its own laws of evidence, which 
could not be the ordinary laws of evidence 
of civil aid criminal justice. Its rules of pro- 
cedure should be simpler and more expedi- 
^tious than those of the High Court. Then it 
would deliver its judgments, which would at 
once become binding on all parties, and could 
not be questioned in any court, unless it were 
thought desirable to set up an Industrial 
Court of Appeal. If an appeal were allowed, 
the judgment would, nevertheless,' be opera- 
tive pending the result of the appeal. 

"It would probably also be necessary to 
set up a service of summary industrial jus- 
tice all over the country to decide petty dis- 
putes, or questions arising out of the judg- 
ments. If any point in any of the judgments 
appeared obscure or uncertain, the judge of 
summary jurisdiction would stibmit a case for 
the High Court, which would decide the point 
and add the decision to its original judgment. 
Expensive but Cheap 
"That sucji a system would he expensive, 
and that it would give immense powers for 
good and evil to the industrial judges cannot 
he denied. But the expense of such a service 
would be far less than the cost of one impor- 
tant strike, and if industrial peace were ther- 
by established the profits to the community 
at large would be immense. For the solidar- 
ity of our community is far closer than is 
generally understood; if ihere is any indus- 
trial strife in any trade, not only the interests 
directly involved suffer, but the whole com- 
munity suffers with them, to the full extent 
of tffe diminished production of wealth. That 
we perceive when there is a coal strike; but 
it is true of, all strikes, and of all disputes 
which impedes business. 

''It is not proposed to erect such a system 
o{ industrial justice for all trades at once. It 
would be enough to begin with those trades 
whi«;ti are ndcessary to the conduct of our i 



how Nations Depend On Each Other 

. "Although England owns nearly half the 
cotton machinery of the world she Only con- 
sumes, on account of her finer production, 
about one-fifth of the world's cotton crop. It 
is thus by co-operating with the other nations 
of the world engaged in the growing and .man- 
ufacturing of cotton that the problems 'con- 
fronting the industry can be satisfactorily 
dealt with,'' says Sir Charles Macara to an in- 
terviewer. "The International Cotton Feder- 
ation has demonstrated in a remarkable man- 
ner the interdependence of the nations of the 
world, and it has been the means of extending 
the good feeling which ought to prevail 
among the peoples of all nations. 

"I cannot help thinking that the more 
statesmen of the various countries co-operate 
with the practical men responsible for the 
carrying on of the great industries, the sooner 
will the rivalries and jealousies betweeji na- 
tions disappear, for we cannot lose sight of 
the fact that the nations of the world cannot 
prosper except through international trading. 
It is well known, of course, that the Interna- 
tional Cotton Federation is indebted for a 
large measure of its success to the encourage- 
ment given to its aims by heads of States and 
prominent statesmen."

EYES UNRELIABLE, SO SAYS SCIENCE 



"Seeing is believing" is an old sayng which 
is in a fair way to lose its force. IModern psy- 
chology is proving by experiments that people 
do not see even a fraction of the things they 
confidently believe they see. 

The tests used are of two kinds. In the 
first, which is called the event test, a fully 
prepared scene is enacted before a witness. 
Either immediately or some time after the 
event he is asked to recall what he has seen. 
After that he is further questioned to deter- 
mine more exactly the extent and accuracy of 
his knowledge. 

The event test has been less often used 
than the picture test. In this a picture is 
jhown to the subject for a brief period, after 
which he describes what he has seen and is 
further questioned, as in the event experiment. 
These two tests can be advantageously com- 
bined in the moving picture test. This has not 
yet been done, but w-ill soon be undertaken. 

The picture test was first demonstrated in 
America at Clark University by the pioneer in 
this field, Prof. William Stern, of the Univer- 
sity of Bre?lau. At this time two unusually in- 
telligent children, a boy and a girl in the up- 
per gramtnar grades of the Worcester schools, 
were selected as subjects. 

Each was shown separately for the period 
of a minute a colored picture entitled the 
Bauerstube, giving the interior of a German 
peasant's home. Among other details is seen 
a table in the foreground at which a man and 
a boy are seated, while a woman is standing, 
evidently serving them. 

The man has removed his coat and his 
bright red vest is clearly exposed to view. The 
boy is sitting on a bench, his bare feet not quite 
touching the floor. The woman wears a bril- 
liant red skirt, over which is a blue-green 
apron. At the rear of the room is a bed, and 
over it hang three pictures, one at the head 
of the bed and two at the side. These pictures 
depict landscapes, and in one is a long avenue 
of trees. At the foot of the bed is a window, 
through which nothing is visible except a 
branc'h of a tree clothed with green leaves. 

Near the window is a clock with exposed 
weights and the pendulum swung to one side. 
The hands point exactly to half-past 12. All 
of the details of the picture are extremely 
clear; the colors are rich and the hues familiar. 

The children examined by Stern had an op- 
portunity in the minute allowed for the exam- 
ation of the picture to study it in some detail. 
They knew that they were to be tested imme- 
diately on what they had seen and had every 
incentive to give a careful and accurate report. 
They gave the impression of thoroughly enjoy- 
ing the test. 

Had not the audience that witnessed the 
demonstration been able to follow the details 
of the testimony by meanis of a reproduction 
of the picture thrown by a lantern on a screen 
at the back of the children, they would have 
been impressed wit)h the remarkable clearness 



and apparent accuracy of the testimony, par- 
ticularly with reference to a certain cupboard 
which bofh testified stood near the foot of the 
bed. 

This cupboard was described minutely with 
substantial agreement as to the details. Now 
it must be remembered that neither of th« 
children had heard the other give his testimony 
and hence his agreement could not have been 
due to one following the lead of the other. 
Yet there was no cupboard in the picture and 
no piece of furniture that in any way resem- 
bled a cupboard. The fiction of the cupboard 
was developed by a few suggestive questions 
ingeniously put, such as the following: 

"Is there a cupboard in the room?" (The re- 
ply was "Yes") "Where is it?" "How many 
drawers does it have?" 

Prof. Colvin of the L'^niversity of Illinois, 
writing in the Independent, says that he has 
carried on the same experiment with a score 
of subjects, both adults and children, and has 
not found one who could give a completely ac- 
curate description of what he had seen, even 
in the direct testimony, while under the influ- 
ence of the questions, particularly if they were 
at all leading, the witnesses have all shown ex- 
tensive falsification in one or more particulars. 

Scarcely two witnesses have agreed as to 
the time of the clock; some have nof observed 
that it was going (a fact clfearly indicated by 
the position of the pendulum) ; several have 
described the shoes <>rt**^y'Wd<Bt|iI (fie is 
barefooted) ; four have seen the cupboard; sev- 
eral have said that the lawn is visible through 
thfewinilowiMid have embellished it with foun- 
tain and shrubs; some have seen a road wind- 
ing beyond the lawn and lined with an avenue

on the wall ; the carved legs of the table have 
without hesitation been transferred to the 
bench on which the boy is sitting;' a non-ex- 
istent tablecloth has been described as torn ; 
the woman's apron has been given all the col- 
ors of the rainbow, but seldom the right one; 
the sleeves qi the man's coat, nowhere visible, 
have been described as worn at the edges; the 
brilliant red waistcoat has generally been over- 
looked ; but most remarkable of all, the entire 
twenty witnesses have taken their oath that 
the cradle is not blue, but a red or a reddish 
brown. Yet this cradle is a striking blue- 
green, a color of a most obtrusive sort. 

The results of this picture test are all the 
more remarkable when we remember that the

witnesses in this experiment are in a much 
more advantageous position for giving an 
accurate report than are the witnesses of or- 
dinary events. In trials in court the witness 
is ordinarily called upon to relate what has oc- 
curred only after a considerable lapse of time. 
Meanwhile he is subjected to various ques- 
tions, often by interested per.sons ; he talks 
about the occurrence^-^\j.ith neighbors anti 
friends; he rehearses the event many times, 
and then he is placed on the witness stand with 
the injunction to tell *the truth, the wliole 
truth and nothing but the truth."

I like to rise up early 

And get the washing over, 
When the dew is on the vvorl-d 

And the bee is in the clover. 

I like to hunt for eggs 

Where T hear the partridge drumming. 
And gather golden honey 

Where the yellow bee is humming. 

I like to hear the trout splash 
Down in the meadow brook, 

And see the ros'es nodding 
Through the window where I cook. 

Every evening has its sunset, 
Every noontide has its flowers, 

Every afternoon its shadows. 
But the early morning hours 

Are the sweetest of the day. 

With dew glittering all over,

The eyes of the world have been turned 
upon Denmarik because of the death of her 
king. How this country became one of thr 
most prosperous and its people the most con- 
tented in the world was, a few days ago, told 
by Dr. Baurice Frank Egan, American minis- 
ter to Denmark. Dr. Egan's story is interest- 
ing to people of this province as showing how 
education and co-operation can overcome dif- 
ficulties in the cultivation of the soil. Dr. 
Egan says : 

"I was sent by the Department of State to 
expose to dairymen, and farmers especially in- 
terested in dairying, the methods by which the 
Danes have become the most prosperous peo- 
ple agriculturally in Europe. When I say 
most prosperous, 1 mean by comparison, and 
taking into consideration the obstacles they 
have had to meet and overcome. The wealth 
per capita of Denmark is comparatively next 
to that of England. This wealth, however, is 
equalized. There are no very rich people there. 
Every man is fairly well off, but the poorer he 
is the more carefully does he conserve his re- 
sources. Material well being is as common in 
Denmark as education. 

"There is no illiteracy in the country. Every 
man, woman and child over the age of 7 years, 
unless he be an idiot, can read and write. The 
methods by which they have achieved their 
pr es ent — prosperity a re — t4iree^ 



practical education — a perfect system of co- 
operation,' and the intelligent assistance of gov- 
ernment. 

"For instance, the only means of living 
which the Danes have is agriculture. Den- 
mark, like Julius Caesar's Gaul of ancient days, 
is divided into three parts — butter, bacon and 
eggs. Now, the governm.ent, being dependent 
upon the farmers, does everything in its pow- 
er to increase the number of small farmers, and 
this it has done by making money as cheap as 
possible for the farmers. It controls a great 
series of banks, managed somewhat after the 
manner of the Credit Foncier. 

"An agricultural laborer in Denmark who 
has worked on a farm for five years, who is 
poor, and who has a character so good that two 
reputable members of his commune will certi- 
fy to it, may obtain from one of these banks 
a loan of about $1582 in ou-r money. He ob- 
tains this solely on his cliaracter and ability 
and not by any material security he can offer. 
With this money he may purchase a farm of 
from three and one-half to 12 acres. This farm 
means live and dead stock on the land and the 
necessary implements for the working of it. 
The amount loaned by the banks covers pro- 
bably nine-tenths of the value of the farm — 
not of the land, because land in Denmark is 
never sold merely as land. The farm is judged 
by the value of its production for, let us say, 
at least seven years, in hard corn, which repre- 
sents its ability to .sustain dairy cattle and 
dogs. This is an example of the way in which 
the Danish government "encourages the multi- 
plication of small farms. 

"Edutation is compulsory. It has been 
compulsory for many years, and the awakening 
of Denmark to the careful use of its natural 
resources is due to two things — the Danish 
sense of the practical value of practical educa- 
tion, and a series of disasters. 

"The first disaster occurred in the late '40's, 
when the discovery was made that the Danes 
had so impoverished their soil by the continu- 
ous growing of grain that bankruptcy threat- 
ened, even the great landovvners being in dan- 
ger. Then came the closing of British ports to 
Danish grain and the growth of American com- 
petition, which killed off whatever prospects 
of profit the Danes might have made from their 
impoverished land. 

"A very admirable Lutheran bishop, Grund- 
twig, saw that the Danes must be kept at home> 
but that they must be so educated as to- make, 
their country fit for them to live in. He saw 
that patriotism on an empty stomach would 
not work, and he began to form the high 
schools, of which there are some 1200 in Den- 
mark today, which fostered and made possible 
the idea of co-operation. 

"From 1848, the year in which, under the 
new constitution, it was possible for the poor 
Dane to own land in fee simple — the consti- 
tution meaning the breaking up of the feudal 
system of land tenures — until 1863, when Den- 
mark lost Schleswix-Holstein to Prussia, the 
Danes struggles against terribly adverse cir- 
cumstances, and then, under the impetus which 
the high schools had j^iven them, they began to 
co-operate. In the high schools, which are 
open only to men over the age of 20 years, the 
Danish farmers learned to trust one another: 
they also learned that with impoverished land 
and no capital they could not compete there 
with the great landowner who were beginning 
to sell great quantities of butter and hogs to 
England and Germany. 

"The tendency in Denmark was and is to 
the constant increase of the small farmers, 
hut the small farmer was practically nothing as 
an individual. To control the British market 
for fresh butter and the colonial market for 
canned butter it was necessary that they have 
capital ; it was necessary that their product be 
the same in quantity all the year and always 
the same in .quality. To standardize any pro- 
duct one must have an enormous quarttity of 
that product and the power of controlling its 
quality. The Danish farmers, in order to do 
this, began to form co-operative societies. 

"This movement, fostered, as I said, by 
Bi.shop Grundtwig's high schools, began by the 
organization of small societies of »rmers of 
variotis districts. In these eac)i man wag al- 
lowed one vote, bat he guaranteed that he 
would supply to the co-operative creamery 
just so many pounds of Sutter-fat-— hntter«fat 



being the commodity in which he dealt — and 
make himself liable independently, plus the un- 
limited liability of the co-operative society to 
the government bank for the amount of the 
capital borrowed. 

"Today the Danish farmer buys nothing in- 
dividually. He uses no seeds till they nave 
been tested by the experts furnished by the co- 
operative society. He buys his fertilizers, soya 
beans from Manchuria, cotton and meal from 
the United States, through the co-operative so- 
ciety. He never kills his own hogs, though 
tlicre are 500 hogs to every 10 persons in Den- 
mark, but sends them to the co-operative bacon 
factories, which were founded some time in 
the 8o's, when Germany refused the Danish 
hog because of an outbreak of swine fever. 
The Danes instantly founded, with the assist- 
ance of the government, large co-operative ba- 
con factories. In order to make dairying pos- 
sible, the Danes had to regenerate the land ex- 
hausted by the lack of scientific treatment. 
\^- "^enniark is not a good grazing country. 
The climate for grazing purposes is probably 
fne wor.si in the world. There are only 14 
weeks in the year when cattle can graze in the 
open. In the ^'s and 70's the Dane— lately in 
possession of his-.iand-i-Yound that he must 
root or die, or become an exile, as the Irish 
\yere, for the lack of ^sistance from an intel- 
l^tggnt .gov » rnm a nti He Foote d. That is, he 



saw the roots— the turnip, the carrot, and, 
above all, the great sugar-beet root— could be 
used not alone for feeding his dairy cattle, but 
could be made most useful in restoring his ex- 
hausted soil; but he did nothing haphazard. 
_ "Being an educated man, he was an open- 
minded man and he induced his government to 
furnish scientific experts who could finally an- 
swer any question he might ask. As an ex- 
ample, let us take the small farmer with three 
cows, three hogs, four head of small cattle, and 
a horse or two. He farms perhaps 12 acres. 
Now, it is a question with him as to the rota- 
tion of his crops; it is a question as to the 
amount of butter-fat that cow should produce. 
He has, through the co-operative society, the 
use of a scientific expert, who visits his farm 
every 18 days and answers all these questions 
after consultation with him. Furthermore, he 
keeps a duplicate set of books for the farmer, 
so that the farmer knows exactly the amount 
of butter-fat each cow yields every week, when 
the cows arc expected to calve, the value of 
the service of every bull in use, and the exact 
position of the farmer economically and agri- 
culturally. For this service the farmer pays 
the expert 30 cents yearly per cow, the govern- 
ment paying the rest of the expert's salary— 
the expert being attached to the Royal Danish 
Co-operative Society. 

"Denmark is a country which comprises 
15,000 square miles, which'is, I suppose about 
four times the size of Delaware. It supports 
at least 2,500,000 persons in very good condi- 
tion, and sends out of the country each year.- 
at a conservative estimate, $tt,o,ooo,ooo worth 
of butter, bacon and eggs.. At least $90,600,- 
000 worth of this export goes to England ; but 
the British market is retained not alone by 
the invariable quantity sent out, summer and 
winter, but by the invariable quality, the Dan- 
ish butter being the highest-priced butter in 
the British market." 



EMIGRATION FROM PALESTINE 

"The present unsettled state of Palestine 
and Syria has one noticeable result. Thou- 
sands of people are emigrating, especially to 
North and South America. Every steamer 
passing through the Levant is besieged by 
emigrants wanting passages. On April 17 the 
Equateur, beyonging to the Messageries Mari- 
time Company, had about six hundred emi- 
grants on board when she left Jaffa. They 
were not only Christians, but also Moslems 
and Bedouins," says the Jaffa correspondent 
of the Pall Mall. 

"The majority are young men, who are 
escaping from military service, but many are 
traveling with their wives, and even with chil- 
dren. In some cases their only luggage is 
wdiat they have on their backs; and it seldom 
consists of more than a small bundle of miscel- 
laneous articles. 

"With them these poor emigrants have to 
bring food for a week, as the company does not 
feed its third-class pas.sengers for the bare £3 
which it charges for their passage from Bey- 
rout. 

".In Palestine some of the Christian vil- 
lages are being depleted of their male popu- 
lation. As an instance, I may mention Bethle- 
hem, where 60 per cent of the young men have 
emigrated, mostly to America, leaving the 
girls behind with no one to marry. 

"One reason for the young men leaving the 
country just now is that the reserves have 
been called out for what is designated 'special 
service.' 

"All through the Levant the movement o( 
troops is going on. It is reported that there 
is again trouble in the Yemen. 

"Officers who had settled in Jerusalem with 
their families had to break up their homt» 
then and there. The .square in fro»t pf the 
'Tower of David' has been piled up with c«r- 
pets and furniture belonging to offieers, bt- 
ing sold at auction for next to nothing. I b«v«

Though practicable steamboat traffic, as 
everybody interested in shipping knows, be- 
gan with the birth of Henry Bell's tiny Comet 
in the year 1812, \vc must gn a little further 
back than this year in order to find the ear- 
liest attempts in Scotiaml in cnnneclion with 
steam propelled \o-cN, says the Glasgow 
Weekly flerakl. 

In the year J788 William Symington, a 
native of Leadhills, Lanarkshire, conceived 
the idea of driving vessels by steam. .Sym- 
ington was intended for the ministry, it being 
his parents' great ambition to see their son 
"wag his head in a pulinl," and with this end 
in view they gave him an excellent edtication. 
This was not, however,, his sphere, as he had 
a decided bent for mechanics. While prose- 
cuting his studies for the ministry at the 
University of Edinburgh he also found oppor- 
tunities for studying mechanics. It was at 
this period that the idea occurred to him of 
propelling road vehicles by steam power, and 
liv the summer of 1786 he exhibited to the pro- 
fessors and scientific men of the Scottish capi- 
tal a working model showing the feasibility 
of his invention, but it is not recorded that 
His scheme had any practical results. 

In all probability this would have been 
the end of Symington's idea had it not b£en 



Symington's conception that he ordered eight 
boats, of similar model to the Charlotte Dun- 
das, for use on his own cannl. 

Another Charlotte Dundas 

After his return to Scotland, Symingtwn, in 
1803, built the second Cliarlotte Dundas. which 
proved a great advance on the first boat of 
1801. Her first commi>sion was to tow two 
laden sloops of 70 tons burden each frum Lock 
20 (Grangemouth) to Port Dundas i(Jiasgow), 
a distance c.f nj'.. milc^, in the time of six 
hours, and, it i.- -^aid. "against an a'l verse gale."' 
The directors again became alarmed for their 
canal bank.s, and ordereil her withdrawal. She 
seems only to have been laid up for a short 
period, however, as old illustrations, dated a 
few years afterwards, show her acting- as. a 
pleasure-boat on the canal. ¥- 

An old original sailing bill, ^ated 13th Aug- 
ust, 1813, shows her running in connection 
with the stage coaches between Edinburgh and 
Stirling, part of the journey being made by 
road and part on the canal. She again appears 
in 1827, having been converted into a steam 
dredge for the canal. 

For a number of years after the building 
of the Charlotte Dundas No. 2, Symington con- 
tinued his experiments, but these, added to the 



l o ss e s in co nnection with sl c am wavigatiun, in'- 
volved him in financial ruin. In 1842 he re- 
ceived a grant of £ioo from the Privy Purse 
of King George the Fourth, and a further do- 
haTion qf ^£^5^ ^wb^^eafs liTf ef xvaTdsT Dun ng 
his. later years he lived in London, and was en- 
tirely dependent on his family, who Wdre resid- 
ing there. He died on the 22nd March, 1831, 
and was buried in the .churchyard of St. Bo- 

tX)lph. Aldgate, London; ■'S.''^'C'' 

The fact, however, tnust not be lost sight 
of that Bell was an interested party at the ex- 
periments made from time to time on the canal, 
besides being a close j^ersonal friend of Syming- 
ton. There prol)ably nc\cr was greater evidence 
of two great minds running in the same groove 
than the lives of Symington and Bell show. Bell 
must have been familiar with the \icissitudes 
and misfortunes which fron.T time to titne at- 
tended Symington's gallant efforts, but noth- 
ing daunted, he foresaw inc grca* i:>ossibilit'es 
of steam navit;rction. 



Bell's Early Training 

Unlike Symington, Bell received a very ele- 
mentary education, and was put to a trade at a 
very early age. He was born at Torphichen 
.Mill, near Linlithgow, on 7th April, 1767, and 
was first employed as a stone mason, but, like 
not a few great men, his first calling or profes- 
sion had no attraction for him, and three years 
( 1780-83) at the building trade proved enough, 
lie suliscquciitly was ai)prenticefl as a me- 
chanic or millwright for three years (1783- 
1780) with hi.s uncle, Henry l'>ell, at Jay Mill. 
After completing his apprenticeship at the mill- 
wright business he was em[)loycd one year 
with Messrs. Shaw & Hart, Bo-ness, for the 
purpose of receiving instruction in ship-model- 
ing. In 1788 he went to London and gained 
experience of engineering in various firms, in- . 
eluding the famous works of Mr. JienJiiici. It 
has often been said that Mr. Bell was a "sell- 
taught engineer," but the training he received 
orovfts the contrary, «tt?l'i«i later yeafs he re- 
sented very much the use of this phrase. Dur- 
ing the period Symington was experimenting 
in conjunction with Mr. Miller on Djilswiiitflin 
Loch Bell was studying assiduously the ques- 
tion of steam-propelled vessels. 

In 1800. or exactly one year before the 



building of the first ■ Charlo t te Dundaa, Dell ap " 
preached Lord Melville, then First Lord of the 
Admiralty, for leave to Remonstrate the utility 
of lw & Inv ention, whereby v^si^la m ight be 

anveirii^inslE"wificI"'and tide. Aftcf cSTTSfcter^ 
atiou, the .\<lminilty came to the conchision 
that they could not' give his scheme support, as . 

they thought it unworkable. There, was, how- 
ever, one dissenting voice amongst onr naval 
experts, for we find that the famous Lord Nel- 
son was a supporter of I-Sell's invention, and 
strongly urged the Admiralty to give it a trial, 
ft is recorded that he protested warmly against 
the indifference shown by their Lord<hiii>. 
and be it said to his everlasting credit, he did 
not furn his "blind eye" on liell's plans, lie 
warned tlioni a- follows: 

"My Lor<ls and Cjentlemcn. if you do not 

adopt .Mr. Be.l's scheme other nations will, and 

in the end vex every vein in the Hm|)irc. It 

will succeed, and you should encourage Bel!." 

Although repulsed by short-sighted official- 



ism, Bell continued his experiments, and after 
returning to Scotland he experimented with a 
small pleasure boat, into which he placed a 
boiler and engine of 4 horse-power, with ma- 
chinery for driving the paddles. We next hear 
uf him approaching James Watt, the inventor 
of the steam engine, with regard to a portabk- 
steam engine that would stand on its own 
base, at the same time submitting a plan. 
Watt's reply was most discouraging. He 
wrote thus : 

"How many noldemen. gentlemen, and en- 
j^ineers have puzzled their brains antl si)ent 
I heir thousands of pounds, and none ol all 
these have been able to bring the power lA 
steam in navigation to a successful issue." 

Watt's rebuff, following hard .on that of 
the Admiralty, would have crushed the ma- 
jority of men, but Bell was made of sterner 
stuff, besides possessing a confidence in the 
utility of-W* scheme. 

The Comet and Her Builders 

The hOnOr of inventing the stcauisliip is 
often disputed, but the report of the Select 
Committee of the Housfl cP Commons on 
steamboats, published in I8», is emphatically 
in favor of Bell, In i8ii Bell contracted with 
John Wo6d, of Port Glasgow, to build a vcs- 



o e l (or him t o be propelkd by at e am, the e n - 
gines for which he placed with John Robert- 
son, who had & mechanical engineering btisi- 
ness on Dempster street, Gla«gow, the cost be- 

-m|r-£T65.' i*hi§^6tf€r-i(1fr 
constructed by David .\apier. a name after- 

, lKrlit!|$8 : coninected with the early shipbuilding 
on the Clyde. The engine and boiler were jjut 
on board a lighter at the Broomiclaw. Glas- 
giiw. and towed to Port Glasgow, where they 
were placed .in the ^■essel, now almost rcad\' 
for launching. The date of the launch was 
24th July, 1812. 

The vessel, which was launched practically 
complete, was named the "Comet." after a me- 
teor which had about this i)eriod appeared in 
the heavens. She had a wooden hull, and was 
43ft. r.iii. long. lift. 4in. broad, and 5ft. yin. 
deep, and had a draught at 4ft. Her tonnage 
was about 24^^. She had a long funnel rc- 
sem'bling a stovepipe, which, was strongly 
stayed, and did duty as a mast all well, a large. 



square sail being hoisted on it when the wind 
was favorable. She had the figurehead of a 
lady, and was gaily painted. The engine was a 
condensing one of three-horse i>ovver, the di- 
ameter of the cylinder being iiji in. and the 
stroke i6in. 

The vessel was originally fitted with two 
pairs of paddles 7ft. in diameter. This ar- 
rangement proved a serious disadvantage, as 
the one jjair of paddle wheels worked in the 
u ash of the other, causing a loss of power and 
retarding the .vessel's sped. Aftei' her first 
trial, which proved a failure, one i)air of the 
))addlc.'. was removed, and another engine of 
aljout four-horse power was supplied by Rob- 
ertson, the diameter of the cylinder being in- 
creased to I2_^in. After sailing for about a 
year , she- was beached at Helensburgh and 
lengthened about 20ft., making her length 6oft. 
The engines were also removed and replaced 
by a set of six-horse po^yer tiiade b^ Thomas 
Hardy, Cartsdyke, Greenock. I| is mteresting 
to record the names of her first zttyf. William 
MacKenzie, who had previously bCeti a school- 
master at Helensburgh, was master; Robert 
Robertson, engineer; and Duncan Mclnnes, 
pilot. There were also on board a fireman and 
a piper, the latter of whom may b^ regarded 
as fhe ancestor of the German band on the 



that among the spectators was Mr. Patrick 
Miller, of Dalswinton, Dumfriesshire, Mr. 
Jollier, had been for some time experimenting 
■witlr double-keeled boats on Dalswinton Locb^ 
and had got so far as to actuate the paddles, 
which were placed at the stern, by means of 
capstans turned by relays of men. In a con- 
versation, with Miller, Symington suggested 
the idea of adopting the steam engine as his 
motive power, and showed how it could be 
connected with the paddles of his vessels. 
Miller was very much impressed with the 
idea and commissioned Symington to fit A 
'.team engine into. one of his double-keeled 
boats. 

Symington's Experiment 

It was in November, 1788, on Dalswinton 
V <■^rU that thf> novel exi^eriment of driving 
vessels by steam took place and proved a 
great success. On board, on that memorable 
occasion, were three of the most famous men 
oi their day — Henry Brougham, who after- 
wards became Lord Chancellor of England; 
I^obert Burns, the poet; and Alexander Nay- 
smith, one of vScotland's greatest painters. 
.X'aysmith portrayed the event on canvas, but 
Burns seems to have been silent on the 
matter. 

Emboldened by the success attending this 
experiment, Miller at once engaged Syming- 
ton to fit a steam engine of greater ])ower into 
one of his largest boats. This was according- 
ly carried out, and proved a great improve- 
ji'ient on the initial experiment on Dalswinton 
Loch. This second attempt was made on the 
i'or.th and Clyde Cjinal, "amidst the cheers of 
assembled multitudes.'' The speed attained 
was nearly six miles per hour. After this 
demonstration Mr. Miller, in some unaccotint- 
able way, lost his interest in steam naviga- 
tion, and for want of an enthusiastic patron, 
Svmington returned to his usual mechanical 
labors. The engines of the boat tried on 
Dalswinton Loch are in the Kensington 
Museum, London, alongside the models of 
the engines of the S.S. Great Eastern. 

Nothing more is heard of Symington till 
the year 1800, when he was engaged by 
Lord. Dundas. who was then Governor of the 
Forth and Clyde Canal, to construct steam 
tugs with a view of superseding horse haul- 
age. In 1801 the first, Charlotte Dundas. 
named in horior of his lordship'es daughter, 
was built and plied on the canal, towing ves- 
sels besides going down to the River Forth 
and bringing up the River Carron as far as the 
locks at Grangemouth .sloops detained bv ad- 
verse winds. 

America Follows 

Fulton, the American engineer, was this 
vear conveyed eight miles on the canal in this 
boat, the journey occupying one hour and 
twenty minutes. That Fulton profited by hi^ 
visit to the Charlotte Dundas is borne out by 
the fact that, after returning to Ainerica the 
same year, he patented his direct-acting steam 
engines for propelling vessels. Henry B^ell 
also corroborates this, as in a letter to Mr. 
[ohn McNeill, civil engineer, dated Helens- 
burgh. 1st March. 1824, ihe says: 

"I wrote to the American Goxernment on 
the iinportance of steam navigation, and they 
appointed Mr. Fulton to correspond with me. 
From this tnatter-of-fact statement, you see, 
the Americans got their first insight of this 
»ystcm from your humble servant, llenry Bell." 

In the same letter he also says: 

"He (Fulton^ came at different times to 
this country and stopped with me for some 



time. 

'r'l 



This letter throws the proper light on the 
erroneous story that Robert Fulton was the 
pioneer of practical steam navigation, If any 
more proof was wanted, the fact remains that 
the engines for the S.S. Clermont were built at 
Mr. Bell's suggestion by Messr.«;. Bolton & 
Watt, of BirminghaiTJ. The directors of the 
' canal becoming afraid that the 'undulations 
caused by the wheels" of the boat would do in- 
jury to the banks, she was .sub.scquently laid up 
in a creek of the canal at Bainsford. 

Unlike his first patron. Mr. Miller of Dal- 
swinton, Lord Dundas still believed in the ulti- 
mate success of Symington's invention, umi 
thro«gh his good graces Symington, who had 
gone to London, wa« Introduced to the Duke 
ol Bridgwater, who was 50 much impressed by

"The other day I entered the office wlicre 
the old clerk sat at his desk for many years, 
and the sight of it affected me in the strangest 
way," says a writer in the Scotsman of one 
of the most pleasing descriptions of the type 
of men niade familiar to us by j. ^L Barrie 
and Tan Maclaren wc have ever read. "The 
place was not changed as a resttlt of a jirocess 
of evolution, but tlic changes had manifestly 
come by rcvolntionary u'pheaval. It was as if 
one saw witli the o)>cn eye heaven-born dynas- 
ties toppling to their fall. Let mv try and 
show you that office as the old clerk had it. 
It uas the upper room ni the old parish sclutol. 
As the school was Inidt on the l)rae-face, the 
lower room was entered from the lo wroad, 
))tiL the upper room opened on the high road, 
and you entered it across a flagstone. It was 
the large class-room of the old school, and the 
clerk did n()t need it all. so be partitirmed off a 
corner for liiin>elf at the fireside, and in the 
wall 'j{ tliis partition he had a scpiare window 
which opened on hinges inwards. 

"When anyotie entered from the roail the 
, clerk looked at them through the aperture. If 
he approved of them he sat still, for then 
thcv would walk round to the d<3or of his cn- 
clostirc, enter it. and sit down at the fire, and 
the clerk \\nuld perhaps tell a 'Jtory or ])er- 
haps listen to one. But if the east wind hap- 
]-)ened to be blowing, and he, as a conseqtience. 
temporarily disapproved of those who entered 
in, he opened the little glass wiirdow with a 
jerk that made one jtimp, and with his head 
framed in the opening, and a pen held in a 
thumbless hand pointing ai the intruder, h^ 
would say very shortly. 'What is yrmr busi- 
ness^' 

He Never Said "Sir" 

"There were, of course, those who misun- 
<lerstood this greeting of the clerk, but suffice 
it to say that they w'ei-e those who did not 
know him. For the old clerk never said 'Sir' 
to anvbody : no. not even to the General. The 
last map to wdiom the old clerk vouchsafed 
that prefix of respect was to Doctor Low, the 
old minister who ruled the parish when the 
ficncral was in India; but as a tribute to his 
departed worth he never used it to anybody 
else again. 

"There are some people who become 
obsessed with the idea that they are indis- 
pensable to the working of thf- srhrtne of 
thing.s. It is a strange delusion, and you have 
only to think of the old clerk to be cured of 
it — if you wish to be cured. In his day he was 
to the parish the one indispensable man. Did 
you wish to get married or get buried, it was 
the clerk alone who could arrange these 
things; did you desire to deal with the school 
or hall, you were directed to the clerk; did you 
hear of anyone in need Or in distress, again the 
clerk was the legal authority to go to; was it 
a question of rating, or water, or lighting, the 
dcrk dealt with these things; was a child born, 
the clerk had to be loUl of it directly, and he 
kept that child in hi?^c till the doctor certi- 



fied that he or she was duly vaccinated; was 
the child initiated into the Church, the clerk 
had lo record it; was he years afterwards re- 
cei\ cd into the felhuvship of the Clmrch, the 
clerk had a ledger in which he ni.ide a note of 
it; and when .Mrs. Brown-Smith resolved to 
stir up the lethargy of the parish, she had to 
,l;o to the clerk to ask for the hall, and even 
her heart failed her when h.c said 'What is 
your business?' 

"All the week you were thti^ in the clerk'-; 
eyes, and your doings were recorded in his 
ledger.':;, and on Sundays, if you went down Ivi 
the church among the graves in the haugh of 
the river, there in the vestibule you wonld find 
Ihe clerk Avrdling for you; and if you were a 
strange- and asked him where you might sit, 
the chances are that he would say, 'You may 
sit anywhere, except in the ])ews where there 
are cushions; I wonld ailvise you not to sit in 
these.' 



if so seemingly 
'If von sit in a 



in this was the clerk cieatiy misunderstood, 
as in n1any other wavs : and to one man who 
asked for an exi)Ianation 
churlish an answer, he said 
bare i)ow nobmlv in this church has a legal 
right to say, "Get out of my pew ;" 
but a man has a legal right to say to you, "Get 
off my ctishion." Thu^, for yonr sake, 1 re- 
rommcnd the pew witlnnil a cushion — it's 
safer.' 

"Thus you see thai if anyone ever was in- 
dispensable it was th(; old clerk. Nothing in 
all the parish could bo done without him. 
E\cn the farmer at Ilillhcad used to ask his 
opinion about the best way of dealing with 
his land, and to each the old clerk ministered 
according to his needs. He <lid everything; 
northing could be done without him. .\nd yet 
he <leej)s now with the coverlet of green drawn 
over his head, wdiile the parish goes on just 
as before. And yet not (piite as before. P'or 
now it is 'Sir' and 'Madam.' and "Allow me to 
do this for you !' The things go on as before — 
but Ihe breath of the old, rugged, faithful in- 
dependence is gone. Things go on as before, 
it is true; but the atmosphere is different. Ai- 
tcr all, for the continuance of an atmosphere 
the old clerk was indispensable. 

The Man He Really Was 

"Now, if vou formed your estimate of the 
clerk fix)m the opinion of the dwellers in the 
vi!!a.« of the slopes, your thought.«. of him 
would be utterly vvroiTg, and I would like to 
show you what nianncr of man he really w^as. 
It is a grave blunder to judge anyone by the 
outward appearance, or by the manner of hi* 
speech. Particularly i.s this so with that class 
of Scotchmen to which the clerk belonged. 
Beneath all that rugged exterior there beat a 
tender heart. To see the clerk jog in and out 
among the poor on New Year's Day, dispans- 
ing the bounty of dead benefactors, was to 
realize that this man had the power of sym- 
pathy. It was, 'Bridget, a good New Year to 
you.' all day long, an<l worn fiices lighting up 
at the sight of him. And for each he had fr 



separate joke, at which they laughed as those 
who know how to laugh. For the 'won't 
work" loafers who harassed him tmtil he was 
fillefl with a profound pessimism regarding 
the future of humanity, he had nothing but 
stern justice; for the po(.)r of our own parish 
he was jiitiful and tender. If he had any pas-' 
sion. it w^as the love of the parish. The very 
inscrii^tions of the tombstones he wrote down 
in .1 l)ook, lest they be lost through corroding 
time. The old records of centuries in the faded 
niiiuite books he copied them lovingly, thai he 
who runs might read of the days of old. 
The End of the Day 

"But it was at the end of the day that the 
clerk let those who came near him sec ihe man- 
ner of man he was. When he knew that he 
was going hence, he set his face towards tht 
journey as one who was not journeying to a 
strangV country. The sacramental season 
come round, and the clerk had prepared every- 
thing for thirty and more years, and while he 
lived he would allow none else to prepare. I'ut 
when the hand refused the task, he had the 
preparations made under liis eye, that he 
might be sure of all things being done decent- 
ly and in order; and into his room the beadle 
came to receive the last directions, and bore 
hence down the brae the things which were 
pre} arod. And because he greatly wishe 1 il. 
the law was broken, and he was not left 
wholly out.side on that day, wdiich was for 
inany years go great and solemn to him. 

"As the shadows were falling he had only 
one request to make. "When I am deai!,' said 
he, in faltering words, 'carry me into the 
chtirch. and have a Psalm sung over mc.' 
When he was told it would be done, 'Then I 
die happy,' he said. .\nd wdien the old clerk 
was carried for the last time into the church, 
at wdiose door he had stood fof so long, the 
whole parish seemed to be there. And over 
him wc sang. "The Lord'* my shepherd.' just 
as he wi.shcd it to be done. Then he was laid 
lo iiis sleep under the shadow 'of the church, 
as near to its walls as he could be laiil, jiisl as 
he himself wished. And beside the gra\e 
stood the General as one who knew that two 
men loved the parish with the whole hearty 
and that now only one was left. And nobody 
in the parish so much as remembered pn that* 
day that the old clerk had not said 'sir' to 
anvbr>dv "lince the dav pn which his o'd minis- 
ter died,"

river steamers of today. 

Triumph and Disaster 

The Comet's first voyage, .which was adytir- 

tised in the various newspapers of the day, 
was from Greenock to Glasgow, and took place 
on the 6th August, 1812, the distance (22 
miles) being covered in y/2 hours. Among 
the crowd who saw the first steamboat on the 
river was the grandfather of the present Lord 
Iverclyde, who little imagined that he would 
see his son, the first Lord Inverclyde, of the 
Cunard Line, build shij)s through wdiich the 
Comet could almost have sailed. 

After plying on the river for about a month, 
on the 2nd .September, her sailings were ex- 
tended, as we find on that date she sailed 
through the Kyles of Bute to -Tarbert, llr 
mouth of Loch Fync, whence Sue proceeued 
through the Crinan Canal to Oban, Port Appin, 
and Fort \Villiam, the return journey occupy- 
ing four. days. The Comet was, therefore, the 
first steamer to use the Crinan Canal. 

After sailing for a short time she was trans- 
ferred to Grangemouth, but in August, 1819, 
she re-appeared on the West Highland route.. 
On the 19th December, 1820, the Comet, on a 
passage from Oban to Glasgow, was wrecked 
at the Doris Mhor, outside Crinan. The ves- 
sel split in two, and the fore-end, from which 
Bell and the crew and passengers scrambled 
ashore, remained fast on the rocks, while the 
after-part drifted towards the famed whirlpool 
of Corrievrechan and was lost. 

When the Comet was wrecked Bell was on 
his way to Glasgow to arrange with share- 
holders for the building of a much larger and 
more powerful vessel, and in 1821 the second 
Comet was built by James Lang, of Dumbar- 
ton, and engined by D, McArthur (Sr Co. She 
traded in the West Highlands to Inverness, via 
Rothsay and Crinan Canal. Her engines were 
24 n.h.p. and her tonnage 94 tons. She is No. 
44 on the list of Clyde passenger steamboats. 

Like most of the ventures in which Bell 
\vas cngeged. Comet No. 2 proved unfortunate. 
.\I)ont 'midnight on the 2isl October, 1825, she 
collided with the steamer .'\yr off Gourock, and 
sank in throe minutes, 70 of the passengers be- 
ing drowned. The disaster was due to both 
steatners not exhibiting proper lights. The 
Comet was subsequently raised, and converted 
into a sailing vessel, wdiich was employed in 
the coasting trade till 1876. 

The Clyde Trust to the Rescue 

Bell (Icrivcd no benefit from his^irst boat, 
and the disaster to Comet No. 2 practically 
brought him financial disaster. He was never 
able to pay outright the builder, John Wood, 
nor the maker of the engines of the first 
Comet. With great generosity Wood never 
put the dishonored drafts int(S operation. The 
same could not be said for Robertson, who had 
entered into shipbuilding speculations on hi,s 
own account, which proved disastrous, and af- 
ter he had fallen on evil days he pressed Bell 
severely for money. He put his bills into op- 
eration, and on a caption for £52 Bell was 
about to be lodged in prison. Indeed, had it 
not been for the kindness of a few friends he 
would have suffered the degradation of im- 
prisonment. In jtistice to Robertson it should 
be said he must have been in very straitened 
circumstances. The Clyde Trustees granted 
him the sum of £25 in 1853. and a like abount 
in 1855 to relieve his pecunir.ry necessities. 

The Government were applied to on several 
occasions to grant Bell a pension in recognition 
of the great services rendered by hfm tri the in- 
tr^luction of practical steam navlgktiott, but 
without avail. After much pleading thev 
granted him the insignificant sum of £Joo. 
The generosity of the Clyde Trustee* towards 
Henry Bell stands out in u;re*t contrlM. To 
their everlasting credit, they firift »Ite»ed him 
£50 pw kmium, which they iHttfUy *ff«fr 
wards increased to £100 a yeat Ittf \i{€, attf ,

A DAY IN THE ROUGH 



No one is fonder than 1 am of a big bout 
with the pheasants, but for the real enjoyment 
of sjiooting g-ivc me a day in the rough, such as 
I recently had, while staying^ on the borders of 
Dartmoor, with a friend whotm I will call Jack. 
There was a day tn spare beiore the big shoot 
began. ■'\Vould I care for a walk round and a 
look for an early woodcock?" Most certainly 
I would, and I knew that I was in for a very 
long walk, and probably some mixed shooting, 
The day proved fin-e, but with a good deal of 
wind, and a promise of what tlic iJartnioor folk 
call "showers," that is heavy lain storm^ last- 
ing anything from ten minutes to an hour. Jack 
and I were the only guns, aiwl we had a couple 
of boys to, carry for us. For.dogs we took the 
Knglish setter Juno, a great bitch in her day, 
old now and slow but wise beyond the ordin- 
ary, her two daughters, Daphne and Dora, in 
rare trim after much work on grouse and part- 
ridge, and Nip and Tuck, two well-bred and 
well-broken cockers. My own Clumber, Ham- 
let, who is never absent frpm me when I go 
a-gunning, completed the team. 

A walk of a quarter of a mile brought us to 






our startmg-place, and we got into a big field 

of old rough grass, with three bare hedges 
and one heavily overgrown. The cockers were 
sent in to run this last, and the setters were 
cast off. Away went Daphne and Dora at a 
rare pace and quartering beautifully, while 
Juno pottered along by the hedge. Presenth^ 
Dora stood in the far corner of the field, and ai- 
"most immediately a covc} of nine or ten rose, 
tar out of shot. Dora was down to wing, and 
as I was watching her a low whistle called my 
attention to Juno, who was standing in the 
hedge-creep. On came the cockers, out bustled 
an old cock pheasant, and I hit him hard as he 
went through the hazel tops. A runner for 
certain, and I sent Hamlet to investigate. The 
Clumber was gone a long time, but, as is his 
wont, eventually came back, with the bird. We 
then climbed tlie far fence J»nd tried a field of 
roots, or rather half of one. for the mangels had 
been lifted. A co\-ey of partridges went away 
directly the setters began to range, and a walk 
through the roots and cabbages produced three 
pheasants, one killed to each gun and one 
missed bv me. and a snipe well shot by Jack. 
A grass field was drawn blank, and we passed 
out on to the moor, or rather an offi^ihoot from 
it, nearly inclosed by cultivated land, and con- 
sisting of about 100 acres of gorse. bracken, 
a.nd snort grass. Firs't we tried the lower por- 
tion of this, with all the dogs at work. vScveral 
snipe were seen but they rose out of shot; a 
hare \vas let off. as they arc preserved here- 
abouts for the harriers. Tuck, who poked it 
out. was inclined to chase, and Dora looked as 
though she would like to join in. and there 
was a delay while they were admonished: we 
rhcn discovered that we had lost Juno. .\ 
whistle produced no result, and after a some- 
what lengthy search, we found licr standing- 
steady as a rock in a small bracken-covered dc- 
l^rcs.sion. When we were about fifty yards 
ai\ay a snipe ro-c close to her, but Juno took 
no notice, and then, just as we reached hcr^^a,,. 
rabbit bolted almost fT,om under her nose, and 
running back between us was hidden in the 
g(;rse before we could fire at it. Even this did 
not unsteady the old bitch, she stuck fast to 
licr point, and directly afterwards a nice co\ey 
of partridges got up. well within shot, and we 
both got down a brace. One partridge proved 
a runner, and it was nicely found and retrieved 
by Nip. Juno got a wor<l or two of praise and 
pottered off in her cpieer waw and almost im- 
mediately began to draw. J thought she was 
hunting heel where the partridges had run in 
from ; Jack did not; quickly and silently he got 
the reit 'if llic dogs to heel, and we followed 
Juno. She moved along with the utmost cau- 
tion, came across my front, and suddenly stood, 
when about twenty yards away, looking direct- 
ly at me. I mo\-ed forward a pace, and an old 
cock pheasant — the last thing 1 was expecting — 
burst up right at my feet. 1 I'ircd in a hurry 
missed him clean with my first barrel and 
knocked out a few feathers with tlic left, and 
Tack crumpled him up just in tisne. W'c then 
tried the upper portion of the ground, and this 
produced two snipe and seven rabbits. Near 
the end of it a tliird snipe gave me an easy 
chance, which I accepted, and at the shot a 
woodcock rose at long range, f gave him the 
remaining barrel, missed him. and marked 
him down in a spinney n\er the hedge. Tliis 
looked satisfactory, but Jack shook his head. 
"Out of our rights," he said, and we walked 
regretfully away 

Our next move wa.s to some cultivated 
land, and though wc tried many different kinds 
of fields, and saw i)artridges, snipe, and plover, 
we got lU), shooting. A long, thick hedge, with 
marshy ground on either side of it, just thr; 
place for an early woodcock, also produced 
nothing except a couple of snipe shot by my 
host. The hedge ended in a small coppice 
into which we had seen several pheasants run. 
so we left the boys and spaniels to beat it 
llirough. and walked round to the far end oT it. 
On my way I flushed a couple of snipe and 
got one. Standing in the valley below tiie 
coppice, we had some reasonably high pheas- 
ant.^ sent o\er us, and wc got down six ami 
bowled over three rabbits. W'e then turned 
and had a long tramp through the rough moor- 
land fields to our left, but only found a snipe 
and a pigeon, which were both missed, and 
then in s<jmc marshes Dora made 5» preltv 
l>oint, and from the rise we got down three 
patridge*'. We were now close to the inn and 



lunch, for which I was rather more than ready, 
hut after all I had to wait a little for it. One 
of the boys spotted some plover in the miildlc 
of a very large and very bare grass field. 
Walking them up was out of the question, and 
a drive looked equally hopeless, but I was 
reckoning without Juno. She was sent half- 
way down the hedgerow outside the field and 
there dropped to hand, the boys were placed 
in the road adjoining another side of the field, 
and uc got behind the hedge opposite to 
Juno. Then Jack gave a Igw whistle, so low 
that it seemed impossible for the old bitch to 
hear it, but on peeping through I saw her im- 
inediately top the far .fence and trot slowly 
towards the plover. She got surprisingly 
close to them, and then up they got. One lot 
swung away to my left, but the boys made a 
demonstration at the proper moment and 
turned them nearly over me, I gave theni 
both barrels and dropped |*brac^, il fe*V«.* 
shrewd suspicion that they both fell to the 
first shot, and that I missed with my second, 
but anyway a couple fcjl. Jack got down two 
also, and then, loading quickly, stopped a lap- 
wing as it came over behind the golden plover. 
And then lunch. Cold roast beef, bread and

grown in the adjoining garden, just one pipe 
and a sloe gin, and we were ready for any- 
thing. First of all we resumed our attack on 
the plover; we had several more drives with 
the help of Juno and the boys, and got down 
six and three lapwings. We wercnow right on 
the edge of Dartmoor, and glorious it looked 
with sunshine and cloud shadows alternating 
on the tors and rich purplo and blues in the far 
distance. Right to our front lay a most tempt- 
ing looking snipe bog; forbidden ground, how- 
ever, for the Duchy authorities, in an attempt 
to encourage the blackgame are refusing all 
sl?ooting permits. So we turned awav^and 
started to beat through the. steep side" of .-i 
rough hill, all gorse and bracken ; hardlv had 
we begun when out went a -woodcock well out 
of shot. We marked him down at the foot of 
a high hedge, and went after him at once. 
"Head a 'cock" is the golden rule, and we pro- 
ceeded to put it into practice. It became ex- 
citing as we nearcd the place where he had 
been marked down. .\ rabbit dashed out. and 
went away unfircd at, much to Xip's disgust, 
niid then "bang" went Jack's gun on the other 
side of the hedge, and at the shot the rock rose 
almost at my feet. I fired rather too (piickly. 
and was somewhat relieved when Hamlet 
brought him back unsmashcd. "f'\c got him." 
I sang out. "I'll be shot if you have." came 
the answer, and when we met at a gap in the 
hedge a woodcock appeared in' the hand of 
each of us. Which of us had killed liie original 
'cock we left for future discussion, ^^'e then 
finished beating out the gorse, and had some 
sporting shots at rabbits, of which we got four, 
as well as a (^uple of phea-ants from the 
hedgerow at the hill bottom. 

Wc next tried a long strerc!-, of boggy 
ground, \cry deep in f)laces. and as a heavy 
".shower" came on, one .soon got pretty wet. 
We saAv. severa4 snipe, which ^ot up out of 
shot, and the further we went the wilder they 
seemed to become. [ got wetter and wetter, 
and more and more tired of plunging knee- 
deep through the bog. In desperation' I tried 
one or two shots at extreme range, which pro- 
duced no result beyond a volley of chaff from 
my host, and then, just to finish matters, Juno 
got a point and I an easy shot, and a .snipe went 
away unharmed. Strangely enough, tliis was 
the turning point. The snipe in the remaining 
portion of bog behaved reasonably; we had 
several shots and got down seven. Why snipe 
should be as wild as possible in one part and 
lie well in another part of the same bog on 
the .same flay is more than T know; that such is 
the fact I have proved often enough. 

We now came to firmer ground, granite 
strewn lieather and bracken, and the setters 
were able to gallop. SiMdcnly Dora swung 
rouncl on point in some very rough ground on 
my right, and 1 scrambleff off to investigate. 
Dora seemed a little undecided, and twice 
moved as T neared her. "A ?alsc point." I said 
to myself, "and no wonder, if she is as tired as 
1 am." and then, right in her line, up went a 
woodcock, an ca<y shot with a satisfactory re- 
sult. Dora was complimented f-\n her first 
'rock, and some of my tiredness seemed to have 
disappeared. We still, however, had a lot of 
rough ground to cover, but luck was against us, 
and on it we only got a snipe and a plover.. the 
latter cleverly whistled within shot by Jack. 
At last the house came in sight, and the're'only 
remained a small strip of plants for us to beat 
out. We stood in a lane at the end of it. and 
the boys and spaniels worked it through. Sev- 
eral pheasants broke out sideways, but four 
came over us and we g.itjhcm all'down. while 
just at the end Nip flushed a woodcock. He 
whipped round a holly bush out of my sight in 
an nistant. swung wide to the loft, "and lack 
dropped him at long range as he crossed the 
lane, the last and best shot of the day. 

.\nd in the evening we went over it all 
again, shot by .«ihot. Our total bag was sixteen 
pheasants, seven partridges, four woodcock, 
fifteen snipe, eleven golden plover, three lap- 
wing plover, and fourteen rabbits, .\uthing ex- 
traordinary, of course, but producing. ncvcVthe- 
les.«. one of the pleasantcst day's shooting in 
the rough I have ever had.— Colin Clout in The 
Field. 

o 

ADVENTURES WITH A GRIZZLY BEAR 

My first experience, with Three Legs, at I 



have, come to familiarly call him, was in 1896, 
when 1 first started as a guide for big game 
hunters in British Columbia. 

After considerable correspondence with a 
Mr. y>. of California, a bear hunt was ar- 
langed. An outfit consisting uf eighteen 
horse.s with myself as guide, an Indian heli) as 
packer, and a Chinese cook, set out with Mr. B. 
for the headwaters of the North Boneitart 
River. \\'e traveled three days before wc 
reached our camp on Long Lake near our in- 
tended hunting ground. 

On the following morning, "I'ing i'on^," 
the Chinese cook, awoke us at break of day. A 
hot breakfast was ready for us and it wa.s not 
long before we started, each having a good 
lunch made up by the cook. With our "uns 
all prepared, we made our way to -McKinley 
Creek and placed our watch on Blue Grouse 
Ridge. From here we were able to watch the 
slides on the surrounding high mountains..; iOur 
first day's watch was very interesting^ hut 
after continuing the same kind of thing for 
twelve diys running it became monotonouii. 
The twelfth day, however, we sighted a grizzly 
feeding on one of the slides abojiviwdi w a v up 
the mountain. •■^^'',/':, ^.:;/■ ■Tt^^^*''-!: ■ 

— ' Ju s t a s w e-^vere re ady tyy > »Ullc htm Mr. B. 
found that he had left all Kis rifle shells in the 
camp, five miles away, having emptied the. 
magazine the night before, in order to clean 



pack trail over a rough country to our camp- 
ing ground. In the course of the journey one 
of the pack horses was so badly used up that 
we concluded to kill him and use his carcass 
for bait. The brush was very thick, but we 
managed to find a place where we could get 
an opening for a distance of one hundred 
yards and began oin- watch. On the morning 
of the third day we found that a bear had 
taken nearly half of our bait. 

Five days later, about six o'clock in the 
evening, a large grizzly bear showed up. Mr. 
H. fired at his head and made a miss. In the 
excitement that followed his gun jammed, and 
v\ith a peculiarly swinging run the grizzly 
charged us! Wc had barely time to clamber 
up nearby trees out of his reach. Both noticed 
that he was minus one hind leg, anrl I knew 
that we had seen Three Legs again. , 

, When .we returned to camp we tried M. 
B;V guh and iourtd, as a *^8uft jaf his sights 
having shifted, that he had shot two feet to 
the right at one hundred yards. I made 3 
vow never to go bear hunting again without 
carrying a'gun myselfr 

Better luck accompanied us during the 
next two weeks, and with two bears to his 



credit, Mr. H. was BUiltsfied .und reiurnM ta 

civilization. 

In the following fall, 1901, two Chinamen 
left a eamp ^tt Snowshoe Valley to go to the

the gun. We did manage, however, to crawl 
above the bear and take some snapshots, Mr. 
B. promising to send me copies upon his re- 
turn. He told me that he w-as convinced the 
bear was Three Legs, a grizzly with one hind 
leg shot off above the knee, that shot having 
been fired in vSouthern California three 3'cars 
before. He further stated that he had seen this 
bear in L'tah two years before and the previous 
year in the Cascades in Washington — these in- 
cidents supplying proof to him that the grizzly 
was traveling north. 

Around the camp fire that night the conver- 
sation turned on this bear, his sizb, and other 
characteristics, particularly his swinging walk. 
Ping Pong declared that he had seen the bear 
near camp, but on close enquiry it proved to 
have been on^Iy a porcupine he had imagined to 
be a bear. , 

In six days more the hunt was over and 
proved a success, in so far that we killed three 
grizzlies, though we did not again see Three 
Legs. ^ 

It was in the fall of looo. when on a fish- 
ing and hunting trip with a Mr. H. of New 
York, that I igain heard of Three Legs. This 
trip was made to the Goat River country, 
about six hnm^ed miles north of North Bone- 

Kart. From Barkerville we drove a te/am thrc» 
undred milci narth and theQcc by Middle and 



forks of the Quesncl River. They never 
reached their destination. Later in the season 
the remains of two human beings and unmis- 
takable traces of a grizzly bear with oidy 
three legs were found. 

The winter of 1904 found mc at Telegraph 
Creek, eight hundred miles north. I had gone 
so far afield with pack horses for a Mr. C, 
who rents them to sportsmen calling (here to 
attempt to hunt the Stoney sheep. About two 
o'clock in the morning of January 22 the man 
in charge of the ranch heard a great noise in 
the horse corral. When he went to investigate 
he foUnd that the horses had broken out, and 
as it was too dark for him to follow, he had to 
wait till the following morning, when I ac- 
companied him on snowshoes in a search. 
Three miles from the ranch we found all the 
horses with one exception, and they were re- 
turning to the ranch. Two miles further on 
we fouml the bones of the missing horse. At 
once the man said "wolves," but I ntjadt A 
cIo.ser examination of the ground and found 
clear tracks of a large grizzly having only on« 
hind leg. l^ie bear was heading southr W« 
followed his tracks all day, but did mst'lUt^- 
cecd in catching sight of him agftid. W|f<n| 
we reached the ranch at eleven d'clcMbk 1^1^ 

•told the aory of QW Thret Legt, tlM -. 

-laughed at me. 




Examining some bearftracks we discovered 
next morning, we founds that the bear had 
come on to the ranch during the night. There 
were the distinct marks of three legs and three 
legs only, and the doubting Thomases no 
longer don'oted. The 'ucai had come in irom 
the north and after due investigation had 
gone on his way. Although we followe-d these 
tracks for some distance we finally gave up 
and returned to the. ranch. 

In the fall of 1905, I was out with a Mr. 
S., 6 t Blue Isliand, n iirtois. The idea was-ta- 
hiint bear until the sheep season opened. Ac- 
cordingly a start was made on .'Vugust 10th, 
and the party included an Indian helper and 
a.-Chinese cook. 

We selected our ground among the snow- ■ 
slides and glaciers high up the mountains at 
the head of Stoney River, about two hundred 
miles north from our starting point. Cpon 
that territory we knew that if we found any 
bear they were sure to be very old and large. 
Mr. S. was a sportsman of considerable ex- , 
perience, and it was "Si-Jo" and not numbers 
he wanted. 

For six days we hunted without a kill, 
although we came across tracks of large 
bears. On the seventh day it rained, and Mr. 
Swgkcted to stay in camp, while 1 went out 
alone. After a ride of five miles, I tied my 
horse near the edge of a slide and proceeded 
to hunt on foot. I found the small brush too 
thick for hunting, and. after trying for an 
hour, I turned back, and was just remounting 
when I heard something breaking through 
the bush near by. 

I walked along the steep slope of the 
mountain for about fifty feet, keeping a keen 
lookout below. Suddenly 1 heard a groWl, 
and saw, standing twenty feet above me, two 
bears. The front one was a black bear, and 
five feet behind stood a grizzly. Without a 
moment's hesitation. I fired at the neck of 
the first animal. With a prolonged growl he 
rushed off, passing about ten feet behind my 
horse. Aiming ju.-^t behind the shoulder, I 
fired at the grizzly, hoping to break his back- 
bone, but the shot was too low. With swing- 
ing strides he came straight for me, and I 
could see that he had lost one of his hind legs. 
Even when I was in danger from him, I felt 
a kind of thrill at meeting Old Three Legs 
once more. I ran to one side, and he tried to 
grab me. As he made a miss he slipped over 
and rolled down the mountain like a great 
ball of fur. I fired another shot after him, 
but the brush was thick, and, apparently, I 
fired without any effect. 

Not caring to follow cither of the animals 
alone, I remftunted my horse and returned 
to camp. Next morning the whole party went 
out to see if either or both oi my shots had 
had any result. The first bear had only trav- 
elled a couple of hundred yards when he fell 
dead. P'or five hours we followed the trail 
of Three Legs, and then had to give it up, as 
she had almost stopped bleeding. W'hen wc 
readied camp, ".Ah Xervy," our Chinese cook, 
was sure he had seen the wounded bear pass 
close by. On investigation, we found it was 
a mountain goat he had seen, 

.\ fishing and hunting trip with three 
gentlemen from St. Louis was arranged for 
the fall of 1909. We started on August 20th, 
intending to fish until the season for big 
game oj)ened. For several days wc camped 
at Kelly's Lake, a notable fishing resort. 
Every time bear was mentioned, Mr. F.. a 
real estate business man. would claim an op- 
tion on all the surrounding trees. 

Later on we shifted our camp to Big Bar 
Lake, about 35 miles north of west. One day 
we climbed the mountain, and viewing our 
lake through our glasses we discovered a bear 
feeding near the shore. Mr. F» wanted to try 
for him from the position we then occupied. 
I warned him that it was Old Three Legs, 
but he laughed my suggestion and warning 
to scorn, and began to stalk. While watch- 
ing progress through our glasses, which wc 
did for an hour, we saw the bear suddenly 
turn and run for the timber. Wc were »U 
anxious to know what ha|pp«n«d, i^nd uiTed our

Prince Edward Island is' to have a 
car ferry between ' Cape Traverse on 
the Island and Cape Tormentlne In 
New Brunswick. The atralts of Nor- 
thumberland here are only nine miles

the little province that thure should be 
a tunnel under the straits here. It Ij* 
now tl\ought that the same purpose 
would be served by a bout carrying 
trains across summer and winter. Be- 
fore the plan can bo properly worked

In Australia every boy is a cadet un^ 
less he lives in a very lonely place and 
soon all the men will be soldiers. Ma- 
jor R. C. Holman, who was in Victoria 
a few days ago, told a reporter about 
this universal military training. If a. 
hoy lives within five miles of a centre, 
he must attend drill sixteen days In 
the year. If lie works in the daytime 
he may drill at night. U must be r«- 
membered that a great part of the pop- 
ulation of Australia lives intho cities.

nothing except weakness or deformity 
or a greater distance than five miles 
from a centre is accepted as an excuse.

f.\n Old Kngllsh Legend.) 
Uong years ago. In the far-off days, 
before the scream of tlie ^team-englhe 
and the rush of the motor had made 
the little people called . fairies shy of 
nhowing themselves, a poor farmer 
named Andrew Strong rented- a few 
acres of barren ground In the neikh- 
bnrhooil of the ancient city of Chester. 
Andrew had a wife and faimtly, and 
they all did what they could to trv 
anrl makt! a living. But as none of his 
children were <dd enough to help hUn 
in his -work, -and an all Ms >»or wife 
(^ould do was to milk their wieeow. 
c-arry the eggt« to market, a<iil liiind tha 



grotind was' JMMr, too, and yielded but 
a seamy and ^stubborn crop, so. work 
as hard aa they could, they had much 
difficulty in i>aylng their rent. 

Things got -Vorse and worse, and. at 
last, a bad year came, in 'which every- 
thing seemed |^ go wrong. Their little 
crop, of, oauv 'sU>at ''ba^l PD't' poor An- 
drew such labor and care to grow, was 
spoiled. Two quarters of rent were 
due] too, and Andrew found he had not 
eiiiSugh even to pay half of It. "Msr- 
"gery," said he, sorrowfully, to his wife, 
"whatever are we to do now?" 

His poor wife, who starved and 
pinched that her children might have 
enough, and who, in spite of her heavy 
heart, kept a smiling face, said cheer- 
fully: "Well, Andrew, we must sell the 
row, that's all; and as Thursday Is fair 
day, you must go tomorrow, that fhj 
poor beast may have a rest before the 
fair so that you may get a good price 
for her." 

Seeing tears In his wife's eyes, he 
exclaimed; "Margeiy, dear heart, you 
nlwuys look on the bright side of 
things, and 1 believe yo\i ar<5 right, 
after all, so I won't be sorry that W" 
have to sell the cow. and I'll go t"- 
ihorrow with her." 

So off he went with the cow .next 
morning, his wife charging him not to 
sell her except for tho best price he 
could possibly get. 

It was an early .lune morning, clear 
«nd bright, and the fresh foliage, the 
dancing stream, and tho sweet song* 
of a thousand birds dispelled the gloom 
hi poor Andrew's heart, and made hln^ 
hope again. By and by, he came to 
the top of a hill — "Bottle Hill," as it 
is called now. but that was not the 
name of it then — and Just as he stood 
watching a lark falling, with «weet 
melody, from the sky, he suddenly bo- 
came aware of a little man standing 
beside hlm.^ Bather startlea, as lie had 
seen nobody about a minute befor<3, 
Andrew turned round and wished him 
"Good-morrow." "Good morning," said 
the strangert, who, had jB. queer little 
squeak in his voice, like a rusty hinge. 
From his size. Andrew expected to see 
tho chubby face of a boy, btit. Instead, 
he saw an old, wrinkled, yellow face, 
for all the world like a slirlvelea ap- 
ple, and two little, restless, red eyes. 
The little man had a sharp nose, and 
long white hair, too, and Andrew did 
not greatly like the dwarFs company, 
and he -drove his cow somewhat faster. 
But Ihe little old man kept up with 
him, not walking like other men, but 
gliding over the rough ground like a 
shadow, without nol.so or effort. An- 
drew's luart trembled within him, and 
he wished that he did not have to mind 
the cow, so tha.i he might run a\yay. 
In the midst of his fears, however, he 
v.-as again addressed by his fellow- 
traveler, with, "Where are you going 
with the cow, honest man?" 

"To Chester fair," said .\ndrew. trem- 
bling at the slirill and piercing tonea 
ofthe voice. • 

".\nd to sell her?" a.sked the stranger. 
"To be .lure I am." 
"Will you sell her to me?" 
.\iidrow started. He was afraid to 
have anything to do with the little 
man, aiid lie was more afraid to sav 
no. 

"Wiiat will jou give for her? at 
last said he. 

"1 tPll you what, I'll give you this 
bottle," said the dwarf, pulling a bottle 
from under his coat,. 

Anarew looked' at him and the bot- 
tle, and. In spite of his terror, he could 
not help bursting Into a laugh 

"Laugh If you will," said the dwarf, 
"but I tell you this bottle is better for 
you than all the money you will get 
for the cow at the fair; aye, than a 
thousand times as much." 

Andrew laughed again. "Do you 
think.' said he. "I am such a I'ool as 
to give my good cow for a bottle— 
and an empty one, too? Xo, no, 
not I." 

"'i'ou had bettor give me the cow and 
take tho bottle — you'll not be anrry 
for It" 

"Why. what would Margery .say? I'd 
never hear the end of It. inul how 
would I pay the rent, and what wouM 
we all do without a farthing of 
monev?' 

"I tell you this tiottle Is better for 
you than money: take It, and give mp 
the cow. I ask you for the last time 
Andrew Strong." 

Andrew starteil. -How does lie know 
my name?" thought he. 

The stranger proceeded: ".\ndrew 
I know you, and have a regard fur 
you; therefore do as I warn you, or 
you may be sorry for It. How do you 
k/iow but that there will he many cat- 
tle at the fair, or you will get a had 
price, or, maybe, you might bo robbed 
when you are coming home? — but what 
more need I say to .\ou when yott are 
determined to throw away j-our luck!" 
"Oh. nol 1 would not throw uwa\' 
my luck, sir." .said Andrew. "And If 
I were sure the bottle was as good lis 
yo\s say. though I always liked a full 
bottle better than on empty one, I'd 
give you the cow. 

"Never mind,' sHid the dwarf, hastily. 
"hut let me- liave the cow: take tlm 
bottle, and when yofl go home, do e»r- 
actly what 1 direct." 
.Still .'Vndrew hesitated.

and be rich: refuse it, and beg for your 
life, and see your wife and children 
dying for want. Th<it'« wh.it will hnr 
prn to you, Andrew Strong:" said tli" 
little man. 

'Maybe "t Is true," said Andrew, till 
hcslt.xtlng. He did not know what to 
do; he could hardly help believing the 
dwarf, and, at length. In a fit of dcB'- 
peration. lie seized the bottle, "Take 
tho cow," said he, "(find , if you, are PJ*v-, 
Ing me false, the cUrse of the poor' wUl

"I care neither for your curses nor

Kechels were unsuccessful. For nearly 
two years tbey did their basti but all 
their efforts to produce Bnglish steel 
failed. In the end Krupp decided to 
get rid of them after having spent 
one-half of his fortune In experiments, 
and took over the management of the 
work himself. 

For a long time he had no luck, and 
It was only after some years of disap- 
pointment and labor that a satisfactory 
metal was produced. It was under his 
.son, Alfred, that the business first 
really began to flourish. Its exhibit at 
the London exposition of 18,')1 revealed 
I.J the world that a little known CJor- 
man firm was producing iron and stoel 
that could not bo bettered by the In- 
dustry of any other country. Orders 
from the Prussian government followed 
and the name and fortune of the firm 
were made. — Philadelphia Ledge,

the old 'Seaman' badge). The tests for 
these were published in tlita column

THE CHEERING WORD 



(There have been signs in the last two or 
three years, that clever men are marry in;:^ 
'■lever women, and that female ability is no 
longer the bar to marriage it once was.— 
Daily Mail.) 

Oh! what a cheering word is ihi^^! no longer 
need I hide 

The fact that I'm a dab at Greek, if 1 would 
be a bride 

I still may know the whcrcaboiUs uf Cairo 
and Gibraltar 

And not make mm lose all desire to lead me 
>--^'^to the allar. 
/^ 

I used to think, if I must choose, I'd rather 
marry never . 

Than lose the jay of being— no I'm not con- 
ceited — clever, 

But now I needn't choose, for men will 
_ glance in vs\y direction 

Although I still confess I can define a comic 
section. 

Now, too, I need not trouble to apologize 

abjectly, 
Because I'm quite a Hftppnt rnnlf, anrl

worth while to do so as a prologxie to advo- 
cacy of what is neither obvious nor popular. 
There is no real danger of our all becoming 
insolently honest. It might, perhaps, be 
worth while for all of us to be a little less 
polite — not t^ sln)w too much pleasure when 
we feel none; not to be too friendly when 
we feel altogether hostile. To draw a veil 
over our emotions vviien they are not kindly 
is no more than <lccent. no more than pro- 
perly modest. \},\\i, perhaps, the world would 
1)C more comfortable if we did not use veils 
(luite so thick, if we allowed a suggestion of 
our real cinotitjiis to be seen. 

VVe might lose frieiuls, but they would be 
worth losing, and those we kept would be 
most friencily."

OUR NEIGHBORS AT THE THEATRE 
—OR ELSEWHERE 



You may have noticed that sometilrnciSifn'^' 
a theatre wdiat is said from the stage has lefe 
interest than what your neighbors, critical or 
guileless, say about it. The intervals, in fact, 
are more entertaining than the acts. 

A few nights ago the writer had the ad- 
vantage of sitting by two charming people, 
whose conversation contained a whole treatise 
on maimers. They were not, one inferred, 
very familiar witli the theatre in general or 
any theatre in particular. When they went 
to one they went to see a play, and what kind 
of a play it might be was for a higher power 
to determine. They recalled the two gentle- 
men in Shadwell's comedy, who display their 
intelligent interest in the drama by the fa- 
mous, "What play do they play toni,ght?'' 
"Some confounded play or other." 

But the anecdote, which was intended to 
be the text of a colloquy on manners and 
minor morals, is trying to diverge into a dis- 
cussion of popular appreciation of things 
dramatic, for which there is no place. 

Let us return. The two fcieuds had come 
with tickets given tii them by an acquaint- 
ance, and one said to the other: "It's so ' 
fortunate you were well enough to come, my- 
dear; now you'll he able to tell Mr. X. how 
much you enjoyed yourself." Perhaps you 
find nothing remarkable in that. I'.ut it was 
said before the play was begun. It was the 
expression of the popular a.\-iom that if a; ' 
fj-iend provides x'ou with an evenings 
amusement, you enjoy yourself very much. 
Unfortunately, the progress of the evening 
revealed that these two good people did not 
enjoy themselves in the least. They could 
not make head or tail of the play, and they 
\vere amiably confidciu that it was the fault 
of the author. But there is no reason to 
doubt that Mr. X. was nevertheless assured 
of their exceeding pleasure. 

Of course we all do it vvitii more or less 
enthusiasm. It. is not pretended that these 
two good people were in the least extraor- 
dinary. If they were they would Jiot be 
worth consideration. We all return thanks 
for j)lea.sant evenings when we ha\e been 
bored into the depths of gloom. Some of us 
may do it with little grace. Some of us ma\- 
limit our enthusiasms considerably. We 
should not all feel called upon to simulate 
great delight if we were taken to a play 
which WT. felt wholly tiresome. But few of 
us would be sufficientl\- brutal in tell liie 
^vhole truth of cuir feelings to the ho.st (;f the 

Nor is it to be maintained by any normal 
human being that the world would' be any 
better if in these matters the whole truth 
and nothing but the trtilh were told. Most 
of us. no doubt, ha\-e at limes suffered from 
a terrible temptation to let a hostess know 
what we thought of her notions of pleasure, 
^lost of us have remembered with bitterness 
llic sensations of Mr. Pickwick when he en- 
vied the ease with which the friends of .Mr 
I'eter .Magiuis were amused. But, like Mr. 
J'ickwick, we lia\e abstained I'rum all but 
amiable words. 

^'ou may say that there is nothing else 
to do. ICach of us would be intolcralile to all 
the others if wc insisted on 'boring them 
jiroclamations that we had been bored. The 
mere imagination of such a state is distress- 
ing and depressing. It is only a person of 
f-ingular egotism who would think seriotisly 
of behaving so. It must require a rare con- 
ceit of one's self tci insist on amioying other 
j)cop!c with statements that one has fotmd 
no pleasure in ^vhat pleased them. Of course 
you do find creatures who habitually do this, 
and so make for themselves a kind of im- 
jxirtance. Almost any kind of fool can obtain 
.-•ttcntion if it has .sufficient arrogance. I^ut 
ve do well to discourage them as far as pos- 
.' ibie, and so the ordinary code of politeness 
is hi ordinary circumstances for the greatest 
(uod; of the greatest nimibcr. AW this ot 
to irsc is proving i)ic ob\ ions. ft is only 



My Best Friend: 

So far as those all-importafnt matters, 
skirts, are concerned, tube.s: af« ofl^ and the 
question now on the lap of the gods is, are 
panniers on? So far one has only seen the 
pictures of them in the illustrated papers, ^nd 
like most extreme fashions when first viewed 
they look rather grotesque and somewhat 
Ugly, and I should think it is, quite on the 



cards that panniers will be among the things 
which will not catch on over here to ahy 
great extent. 

Anyhow it Is-aft incontrpvertible^aet-that— 
we are no longer condemned to ,,r^resemble 
tubes. On the contrary, wd^, is^ §? be all 
graceful curves^ . . ,.. ^ v^ . ;^- 

Thus those who jhasie. been at infiintc pains 
-to get thin arid ihipossibly willowly, must 
"how be at equal pains to get phmip and nat- 
urally developed. For the reign of the '■tul)c" 
gown is drawing to a close. 

Many women during the past few w^eeks 
have ordered evening gowns which are a dis- 
tinct return to the pre-Directoirc mnde ol 
five years ago, when frocks were worn fuller 
and the gracious lines and curves of the truly 
feminine figure were aIlow-e<I to reveal them- 
selves, and were even accentuated. 

These gowns have a well-marked waist- 
line—you can hardly call them wasp-waists- — 
while the hips are decidedly pronounced. 

Although, as was stated a short time ago 
that we were threatened with a revival of the 
wasp-waist, I do not think that the fashion 
will be generally popular m England. 

If, however, the new Paris fashion which 
emphasizes the smaller waist comes over, as 
it is practically certain to do, then undoubted- 
ly a large nuniber of English women will 
adopt it. But even so, 1 think the craze will 
not really develop, or, if it docs, it will be 
short-lived. There is an undoubted revival 
in the figure-displaying dresses which were 
pouplar before the tubular fashion began. 
; J Evening gowns which would measure 
some 36 in. or 38 in. rouiul the hips are now 
made with a circumference kA 44 in. or 46 
in. 

The skirt hangs fuller, and the bodice, in- 
ftead of being made unnaturally flat and 
straight, is rounded s^ to show the lines of 
the figure. 'ir 

Dressmakers are welcoming the return to 
a more natural style of dress, as the fitting of 
stout people who insisted upon looking thin 
and willowy was a most worrying and thank- 
less task. 

Women who want to be fa.-hionable w^ill 
now have to remodel their figures, which 
they have so carefully reduced and flattened 
to wear "tube"' frocks. 

They will have to do special exercises for 
j)utLing on flesh, while their food will also 
need to be altered to a fattenin,g sort. 

tlow the fashions have varied during the 
past few years forms interesting reading. 

In 1906 the Directoire gown, with its tight- 
fitting slit-up skirt and high waist, startled 
the fashion world. Jt inv<jlved a practically 
straight outline. 

Later— in 1910— came the hobble-skirt, 
with the "waist below the knee" — a fashion 
which, owing to the extreme difficulty its 
wearers experienced in w^alking. was respons- 
ible for many accidents among women. 

Early in February of 191 1 appeared the 
ankle skirt. Very few women. iK.^vever. had 
the courage publicly to wear this style of 
dress. 

In the autumn of the same year an at- 
tempt was iriade by a dressmaker to revive 
the crinoline. This fashion did not become 
popular, otherwise women Would have had 
;i.u;ain to modify or develop their figure. 

-Mthough the pannier is an accepted fact 
in Paris, our models are so modified that 
they are more fitly described as draped skirts 
or full tunics, and in the latter form they arc 
most succcs.sful. Most becoming is the long 
tunic, slightly looped oii one si^le, with the 
edge cut up to dc-^cribe a semi-circle across 
the front, leaving a long, graduated slope at 
the .side. Another favorite style has a few 
pleats into the waist at each side, and again 
at the centre back, and the front is i»ut in 
separately as a short gored apron, edged with 
fringe. 

Fringe is the trimming of the moment, and 
is lavishly emplayed on draperies, bodices and 
sleeves, and it has even invaded the realm of 
the coat and skirt, while on the smart mantle 
it appears not only as a complete border, but 
in every conceivable fashion, to give a decor- 
ative effect. Fringe is charming on the short 
skirt when it outlines some one-sided drapery 
or suggests a tunic. 

riie short skirt is universally worn with 
coats, but the very elaborate afternoon gownr^ 




A DEMI-TOILETTE 

The citron-colored \-oilc \vhich forms this 
elaborate demi-toilette is embellished with 
two beautiful kinds of lace. Heavy lace forms 
a panel to the skirt and is used on the corsage 
and sleeves. Lace with a fine ground is used 
beneath the folded revers and for the grace- 
ful train. 'J'he three-decker skirt, the train 
and revers are all embroidered in a deep-toned 
citron floss in a scallop pattern, h'our large 
filigree buttons decorate the waist-band. 



is inxariably made with n trained skirt, the 
train quite narrow, and usually square or 
slightly pointed. Very short, and by no means 
of the hobble type, are the ball gowns of the 
season, and here transparencies are the rule, 
and very lovely lace embroideries and passe- 
menteries are used with a liberal hand. 

The long handled parasol is aliuost a 
necessity with immense aigrettes and feath- 
ers, and even the chapeau trinuned with flo.v- 
ers has a towering arrangement of the solid 
"bean-stalk" order at the side. 

Year after year lace is so popular that it 
seems well nigh impossible to devise new 
methods for its use, and this summer the col- 
lar has been brought up to date, the fichu re- 
juvenated, and the old world shawd and scarf 
revived. 

Very handsome collars of huge size a;'c in 
heavy lace, some rounded at the back and 
hanging nearly to the wai.-t and this type is 
popular on short coats and long mantle:=. 
The fichu is often a scarf of handsome lace 
mitred at the back and the point drawn down 
to the waist, the ends crossing the shoulders 
in bretelle fashion, and falling below the belt. 
In this form the bodice is almost covered, and 
sometimes a Magyar effect is produced .by 
connecting the lace beneath the arm with a 
band of ribbon. 

The very wide scarf of lace is made into 
a graceful wrap by gathering up the centre 
under an ornament, or a shawd point is ar- 
ranged from a mitrcfl back, and the neck 
emphasized by "bell-pull" ends of satin with 
heavy tassels, which start from beneath a 
wide collar of satin and embroidery. This 
shawl-pointed mantelet has a quaint charm 
on a young, slim figure, and is yet most ele- 
gant and becoming for a middle aged wearer. 

The vogue of the long wrap continues, 
and a kimono wrap of voile-ninon, elabor- 
ately trimmed with fringe and embroidery to 
match in color a summer costume, is quite the 
latest innovation. Very smart, too. are the 
long wrap coats in tussore or heavy scrge- 
silk which make such excellent dust cloaks in 
biscuit, champagne and similar tints. Linen, 
heavily in.serted with Plauen and Cluny lace, 
is atiothcr favorite, but this i^ usually' made 
in strict coat style, but with i\\v .skin moder- 
ately full and sleeves slightly la ge. 

Iriie newest coats in tailor style are cer- 
tainly longer in the basque, hut there are 
many quaiiit models where the basque is of 
the most abbreviated description ; hut these 
arc mostly carried out in taffetas or satin. 
Dark blue suits are very modish in a heavy 
ribbed .silk, with hair liocs of white or grey, 
and a piping of bright cherry-color or of eni- 
erald-gveen in intruduccit in the trimminjr«i.* >■ ,' 
- /TIm? tailor-inacle, as worn in Piris/ i» d^ ' 



cidedly "chic," as the coat and skirt are of 
distinct coloring, although harmonizing in 
all details. For instance, there is a skirt of 
palest antelope color in suede cloth, the lines 
?. perfectly straight and close-fitting, but not 
drawing in to the figure at all. The coat is 
of bottle-green cloth, with deep turn-down 
collar, wide revers, and upturned cuffs of the 
antelope cloth, and the effect is most attrac- 
tive. 

Anotlver model has a skirt of deep blue 
summer cloth, with the coat of biscuit-color, 
with facings and trimmings of the dark blue, 
which are here in silk ami braid, but matching 
the tone of the, skirt exactly. All the new 
coat backs are quaintly cut, and many have 
the two-piece godet basque, which goes round 
the wearer in sheath fashion, and is put 09 
very high, to give a shortened waist. Some 
are put on in sections, the sides piped and 
scalloped, and fastened down with buttons, or 
the back is roimded at the hem, and unites 
the sides which are perfectly plain and quite 
high-waistcd. 

Yours always, M.

GARDEN PARTIES A'^A MODE 



Garden-parties 



) e en a most 



popular form of entertainment, especially in 
this country, which prides itself on its bieauti- 
ful gardens ftiA toVfe 0| oot of do ors pas times 

and sports,'^^ "" — -— - - - - 

At one time the country garden party was 
a thing apart from the town garden party 
altogether. Moreover, it was little more than 
tea in the garden, but nowadays, owing of 
course to the motor car, givers of these ]>arties 
invariably include their friends anywhere 
within twenty miles in their invitations. 

At one time an "orchestra" or "hand of 
music" was considered the last word in smart 
entertaining, and when to this was added a 
\ery indifferent croquet lawn, all that was 
needed was a fine day to make the entertain- 
ment everything that the most exclusive or 
fastidious among the guests could retpiire. 
But we have travelled a long way under t?ie 
bridges since simplicity in any kind of enter- 
taining was appreciated. And the garden 
party that is really in accordance wdth the 
j)resent day idea is more like a variety show 
than a garden party. The hostess engages 
the latest thing in dancers, or "follies," or 
whatever happens to have hit the popular 
taste of the moment. Or if the tastes of the 
hostess are more refined she may arrange a 
pastoral play, or a concert, either of which to 
be really successful in the.«e days must be pro- 
fessional* All hostesses, however, cannot rise 
to these heights. Their purses are not long 
enough for one thing, so they fall back upon 
the fortune teller, hidden away in a tent 
clothed in mystery and weird garments, and 
there is no form of "side sliow'' popular. One 
sees elderly ladies taking off their weddiug 
rings and going in full of excitement "to have 
their fortunes told"— -clearly the triumj)h of 
hope over experience. 

Besides these wizards, all kinds of com- 
petitions delight the guests at the modern 
garden part}-, hat trimming, weight judging, 
as well as all the usual sports such as tennis, 
badminton, bowls, clock golf and the many 
variations of crocjuet. Tournaments too, are 
often arranged, and prizes awarded; but here 
again the note of elaboration, not to say ex- 
travagance, must be sounded or the thing 
falls flat. 

Thus it will l)e seen that the really smart 
garden party is a curious product of a curious 
age, an age which likes its soup iced and its 
amusements incongrous. 



COOKING IN SEASON 



Asparagus and Peas 

"The Queen of (he Garden," as the 
French name asparagus, has come so quickly 
into perfection that the housekeeper must, 
perforce, rejoice. Haricot vert is known as 
"The ifCing" of the same spot of earth, but 
English people would be more likel}- to give 
that significant title to the little green peas 
that will shortly be available. Neither aspar- 
agus nor peas are ever actually cheap, but 
now that Londoners have recognized the 
value of %'egetable food, it is a simple matter 
to serve such dainties in fresh green food as 
a separate course. It is one thing to know- 
how to cook well; it is quite another to have 
mastered the culinary art to such an extent as 
to be able to create variety and handle the 
same materials so skilfully as to turn them 
into novelties. Now that asparagus is reason- 
able in price it is served freely aux branches 
au Beurre or a la vinaigrette. 

For the sake of varying the vegetable 
course. These recipes include an aspar- 
agus pudding, which is a novelty that 
will be found thoroughly acceptable. Pois 
d'asperge used very often in French omelettes 
and other dishes ^re the points of this exqui- 
site growth cut into small nibs and shaped to 
resemble pea."*. Green peas and lettuce may 
be euggested as another effective mixture 
acceptable at this time of year. It is, perhaps, 
not amiss to remind the amateur cook how 
necessary it is to pay special attention to th* 
fat that is used. With the recipes subjoined 
good butter or cream will make all the differ- 
ence, and for those who like fine It«lita.<^ 
judicious use of it is excellent.

Take up the bundles of asparagus, place them 
on a sieve to drain, untie them, and dish up 
on a piece of toasted bread placed on a folded 
napkin. Serve with av boat of hot oiled, i.e., 
melted, butter. 

Asparagus in Tomatoes 

(A cold Supper or Luncheon Dish) 

Select about eight large tomatoes of ever 
size, dip them in hot .water for a second, peel 
them carefully, scoop out the centre with a 
sharp knife, and put them on the ice until re- 
quired for filling. Cut about one pint of .green 
asparagus tips into small pieces, boil them in 
salted water and drain, add a pinch each of 
nutmeg and castor sugar, also paprika, and 
a dash of cayenne. Mix this with enough tar- 
tare sauce to well season the asj^aragus. Fill 
the prepared tomato cups with this, ami c(jver 
the surface with a little stiff mayonnaise. Gar- 
nish with fancifully-cut slices of gherkiit or 
radishes. Dish up neatly and serve. 
Asparagus Pudding 

Scrape, clean, wash, an^ drain a bundle of 
green asparagus, tic it up, and cook in salted 
water until tender. .. When cooked, drain the 
asparagus, and rub the tender parts through 
a f i n e s i e v e. — M e lt . abO Ht a o». of l>utter in a- 



stewpan, stir in 3 oz, of flour (sifted), cook 
. ^ little without browning, and add by degrees 
about three-quarters of a pint of hot milk in 
which a bayleaf and a piece of mace have 
been boiled. Stir oveif the fire for several 
minutes, then let cool a little and work in 
one by one four yolks of eggs, season with 
salt and pepper and a pinch of cayenne. 
Whisk the wdiites of eggs to a stiff froth, and 
incorporate lightly with the mixture alter- 
nately with the asparagus puree. Three-parts 
fill one or two well buttered pudding moulds 
cover well with buttered paper, and put them 
in a sauce-pan containing a litle hot water. 
Steam thus in a fairly hot oven for about an 
hour. Unmould the pudding on to a hot dish, 
pour over a well prepared lemon sauce made 
partly from the asparagus water, and serve. 
Asparagus With Peas 
Bud and scrape a bundle of small green 
asparagus, and wash them carefully. With 
the right hand hold the thick end of the stalk 
and bend quickly in making it slip between 
the thumb and first finger of the left hand 
until it breaks. Then place the stalks in a line 
on the table and cut in small pieces, cook 
them in slightly salted water, drain on a co- 
lander, then plunge into cold water, so as to 
retain a nice green color. Cook the asparagus 
points separately in salted water, because 
they require less cooking. Melt an ounce of 
butter in a saute-jjan, put in the asparagus, 
season judiciously with salt, pepper, and a 
pinch of castor sugar. Finally mix the as- 
paragus with a gill of cooked green peas and 
a tablespoonful of white sauce, and serve in 
a vegetable dish. Garnish round with fried 
bread croutons or fleurons of puff paste. Care 
must be taken not to over cook the aspaargus.

CHAT AND COMMENT 



If any one wanted proof of the extent to 
which a semi-barbaric custom may still over- 
ride the dictates of humanity, common sense 
and religion, he could find it in the case of Dr. 
Sambeth. a German army doctor who has just 
been asked to send in his papers because he 
declined to challenge to a duel a colleague 
who had insulted him. It was not enough 
that this doctor should clear himself of the 
insulting charge, both in a civil court and a 
Court of Honor of the Medical Association. 
Ry the laws of "honor" Dr. Sambeth had to 
fight. The penalty, if he refused, was dis- 
missal from the army with, ignominy. But 
by a special act of ''clemency," as he had 
given no occasion whatever for the insult, the 
Emperor allowed him to send in his papers. 
Dr. Sambeth is a Catholic, and is forbidden 
by his religion to fight a duel. He obeys 
divine commandments, which, generally dis- 
regarded as "reactionary," are in this case 
wholly sympathetic to modern ideas and for 
that is stigmatized as incapable of continuing 
in his position ! The German Emperor's re- 
script on the subject is called "interesting." 
It contains the following sentence: "An army 
doctor wdio in this respect (i.e., the ethics of 
duelling) does not share the fundamental 
views of his equals in rank cannot retain his 
position in thi service." As Lowell says. 
"There still is need of martyrs and apostles." 

Hard is the lot of men. Here is one sage 
telling them that "trousers are an anachron- 
ous abomination," while another thunders 
forth that " the ugliest thing in London is a 
man's silk hat." This latter seer, one fancies. 
must have overlooked some of the hats <m 
feminine heads, or been more fortunttit than 
most of us in His exfierience. Perhj^f^^ 
son of sensibility will have 
favor of trousers. There

THE VIC TORlil COLONIST 



Sunday, Jun« 23, t9l2 







Victor Sardou's brilliant com- 
edy "Les Divorcons" will I)e 
staged by the Allen Players to- 
morrow, Tuesday and AVednesday 
nights at the \'ictoria Theatre, 
with the popular stock actress 
^liss \ erna Felton in the amus- 
ing role of Mme. Des Prunclles, 
and Irving Kennedy as her hus- 
band. Henri Des Prunclles; and 
Victoria patrons of the COjnedy 
will have a \ery welcome oppor- 
tunity of seeing the versatility of 
Miss Felton, whose exacting roles 
of last week stamped her as a con- 
summate actress in heavy dra- 
matic parts. "Les DivrOrcons** is 
one of the best of Sardou's many 
excellent works,, and as it has 
not lieen played here Ipr yearsi^ 
will be favorably received for the 
three nig"hts of i<^ prodtrction. 



"Les Divorcons" is a comedy 
throughottt. It was- played here 
years ago by Grace Georg^e, who 
became famous in-the-Fol«^— it-is 
line uf Sardou's Very fe^ - lc©ai- 
cdics and has been stamped as the 
siilutiiMi of "'how to be happy 
tliou^h married." Sardou has dis- 
rovered in the comedy that the so- 
lution is indifference. The play 



shoulders above tite field, is Her- 
bert Brooks, who will be seen at 
the Kmprcss Theatre during this 
week. Mr. Brooks has provided 
himself with an expensive layout 
in . addition to his splendidly 
ccpiipped act of card manipulating. 
Mr. Brooks has one assistant, Mr. 
George IM. Smith, but Pjrooks is 
the man. Mis hands arc said to be 
the most capable and wonderfully 
productive extremities ever seen, 
Brooks is without doubt the very 
best card manipulator in the 
world today. Brooks is the only 
man who ~San produce a "full 
hand." . "straight flush," "flush," 
"straight" <^tc., from a deck pf 
cards. He does this as easily as 
any of the other card manipula- 
tors do one and two ca^rds. i i 

Two fascinating young women, 
Irene and Bobbie Smith" will trip 



across the l^mpress stage during 
this week in all their girlish agil- 
ity, singing and dancmg for the 
entertainment - of -Empress pa- 
troii*. Their offering is said to 
include several song and dance 
number.*?, and some clever chai- 
acterizations. The girls are un- 
usually pretty, with pleasing per 
sonalities and clear voices. The

Who Appears in the "Divorsons" at the Victoria Theatre Next

strongly advises that indifference 
to one's wife that makes a \voman 
feel scorned and hence rouses her 
to fury. The subtle changes in 
the character gi\-e Miss b'clton 
much opportunity for her diversi- 
fied talent, at first pleading, then 
bewitching, then angry, and again 
imperious she runs the whole 
gamut of human feeling in trving 
to bring husband Henri to a more 
considerate way of treating her. 
There is much humor in Henri, 
who poses as a philosopher at 
times, but never lets up in his new 
found way of how to be happ}' 
though married. 

The bill for the remainder of the 
week will be announced before 
Thursday, and meantime those 
who wish that cobwebs may be 
blown away, that warm weather 
may be forgotten, and whp desire 
to obtain a night of real enjoy- 
ment will find the trinity of de- 
sires obtainable at the Victoria 
Theatnt' 

Another sensational magician, 
but one wiio towers head and' 



gowns worn ar§ said to be the ul- 
timate in frock construijtion. 

Two men and a woman com- 
prise the Krags 'Vvlo of European 
erpiilibr^sts, who are to be s^en 
at the Empress during this week. 
As is usual with European acts of 
this character, there is ahA'ays 
that element of danger connected 
therewith. A great portion of the 
act is done from a high bar above 
the stage. With an air of sensa- 
tinnalism. the trio perform vari- 
ous tricks and evolutions, A mi.s- 
directed handclasp or any inac- 
curacy would mean broken bOncs 
or worse. 

Mistaken identity is the basis 
for many vaudeville sketches, and 
advantage is again taken of this 
idea, but in a .somewhat different 
manner. The story mav be brief- 
ly epitomized as follows: A' 
newly married woman mistakes 
the reference to a gem for that of 
her husband's forrher sweetheart 
"Ruby." This leads to many 
amusing .situations. Mr. Dine- 
hart was leading man wit^ Mar- 
£Met Agglin hi the "dttfo 



Stockings." He ha:', also support- 
ed Billic Burke, jdlin Drew and 
other stars. Miss Heritage ap- 
peared in many leading metropoli- 
tan jrroductions, notable amang 
which was "The \V,-i'-rens of Vir- 
ginia." These capable perform- 
ers and their bright little ])laylet 
will no doubt afford Empress na- 
trons many a laugh 
week.

■■By Right of Might" at the 
Princess Theatre this week is a 
battle between- very unequal 
forces, a big railway corporation 
on on<B side and a frail young girl 



fight the railway to a finish. Her 
employees arc all loyal, big- 
hearted cowboys, and when she 
asks them to make short work of 
the enemies who arc trying to 
take possession nf her land, they 
promptly proceed to do so, ignor- 
ing all law but that of self-de- 
fence. However, as the play 
proceeds a new law creeps in — 
tlie law of love. .\nd then the 
real struggle begins. 

"By Right of Might" is a 
strong, pleasing play of Western 
life and manners. It is slightly 
melodramatic, but always con- 
vinrincr, and' orM.'f^c an »v^'*11on<

on the other. When the battle 
first opens up, it seejjis almost 
loo unequal, but the victory is not 
always to the strong, and .so the 
spectators wait with intense inter- 
est to see which side will win. Of 
course, their sympathy is all with 
the girl — who ever heard of a 
railway getting, or needing, sym- 
pathy ! The girl fs the ow|ner of a 
large ranch. The railway wants 
to cut it up to suit their own pur- 
pose. The girl objects strongly

play of this kind produced by the 
Williams company, and it is also 
one of the best, dealing with fron- 
tier life. It calls for the full 
strength of the company, and also 
ail special scenery will be re- 
quired. "By Right t»f Might" is 
sure to prove a notable success 
and an important addition to the 
large repertoire of this splendid 
company.

Republican Leaders Ignore All 
Their Promises and Form of 
Government Proves Failure 
— Monarchical Conspiracies 



13 



LISBON. June 22.— All Portugal at 
the present munifiit Is a scpthing vol- 
cano of poliUcal corruption, petty 
tyranny, uionun.-hlcal conspiracteij, and 
active proparallonM for an early revolt 
against Republiran governnieni, wliich, 
It is conceded t)y many of its erstwhile 
supporter!:, has utterly failed in its 
purpose. 

Kvery promise made by the Republi- 
can leaders as Justlficatloa tot the 
change from the old regime has either 
been broken or ignbred. Instead of re- 
duced taxation and better conditions 
geaerally, the. I-'ortuguese people find 
that taxes ha\e been practically doubled 
with, a consequent increase in the cost 
of living, while personal liberty 1b de- 
pcriusnt Upon tuc personal pre »v oaH oZ 
the subject. 

The revenues raised by the Repub- 
lican government have been spent 
chiefly in establishing a more or less 
disguised form of military rule, with 
largo detachments of troops st^ilbned ' 
H t- 0v ery^- polnt wh e re o pp e attl o n l a e v e n 
suspected. Many of the wise ones in 
i^isbon do not hesitate to say that a 
Koodly share of the money wrung from 
the people by extra taxation has found 
its way Into the pocketsof BOme of the 
political leaders, especially those con- 
nected with the Carbonarlo, a secret or- 
f,'anlzatioii that has brought about a 
veritable reign of terror, the tyranny 
of which is most keenly felt In the 
country districts, whore the protection 
of life and property has little. If any, 
governaioiu aid. 

Kmboldcnc-d, perhaps, by their suc- 
cess in creating widespread fear of 
their vengeance throughout the in- 
terior, the letulers of the Curbonario 
have lately taken to aggressive action 
in both Oporto and Lisbon. 

Only the other day Mr. Jose d'Al- 
meda, one of the .strongest members of 
the I'rovlncial government, and pre- 
sumably .still a staunch RepuUcan in 
])rlnc1ple, was served W". notice that 
ire would be as.sasinatcd at the earli- 
est opportunity for daring to criticize 
the parliamentary attitude of .Vffonso 
Costa, the reputed chieftain of the Cftr- 
boharlo. 

An TTnorowned King. 

^^'h^(h(•^ ii(.. lie the Terrorl.st chief or 
not. ihi.s .'^Lime Affonso Costa, hitherto 
nn uiikiiowa lawyer of uncertain prac- 
tice, is today the most powerful -man 
in the Republic — an uncrowned king, 
who rules with a rod of iron. lUs power 
Is born chiefly of a deadly fear of 
the CarboMurio, and it matters little 
who is chief. He holds no office, hut he 
dictates the appointment of Cabinet 
ministers. Kven the parliament Is more 
or less under the Costa influence, and 
the only measures that, secure flnal 
paHsagc are appreciation bills or some 
new propaganda against the church. 

During a meting of the Senate the 
other evening Affonso Costa was tieen 
walking backwards and forwards be- 
tween the ministers' benches and the 
liresident'K rostrum, full monarch of 
all he surveyed. With his hands buried 
deep In his trousers pockets and an ex- 
pression of weighty thought upon his 
swarthy face, this little lawyer calmly 
jiauspd now and then to whisper an 
oriier in the listening car of ft senator, 
and then pass on. P'vei'ylhing moved 
like well-oiled machinery, and the bill 
was soon passed. 

Dr. Vasconccllos," the prime minister, 
is not believed to be a corrupt man — 
only inexperienced and weak. That Is 
why he was chosen by the Costistas. 
Hlthough his sole knowledge of public 
life has been gleened from a compara- 
tively small practice as a family doc- 
tor. That the imhcippy Premier realizes 
the hclples.sness and hopelessness of 
his position is made apparent by lii.s 
repeated offers to rsign and retire tn 
ivrlvatc life, but his resignation has 
Just as often been refused, because 
no man can be found who is willing 
to replace, him. Affon.^o Costa, ambiti- 
ous as he Is, Is too wise to go so far 
at the present time. It would only in- 
crease his reaponslbillties without ad- 
ding to his power. 

Xavolt Zntminent. 
Fear la probably behind the refusal 
of the others to accept the portfolio, 
•1)e<«use all Portugal knows that a Roy- 
alist revolt with a view to restoring 
King Manuel to the throne Is Imminent 
at any hour, it Is in the very air and 
iiVcn the absolute stranger quickly 
senses the pulsing flow of excitement 
and expectancy beneath the placid sur- 
tace of affairs thrinighout the city. 
Only the retail whops seem to he do- 
ing any business. The hotels are almost 
empty, and the tourist Invaslor is 
smaller than it has been for many 
>-c«rs, while tlie wholesale firms and 
shipping houses have been struck by 
a blight of stagnation. They are all 
waiting for the revolution and the re- 
storation of settled conditions. Vluat 
jiow they he'sltato to *hlp or receive 
goodsi for fear that they will become 
confiscated or lout In transit during the 
uprising of the Monarchists. 

The result of the revolt is apparent- 
' '• not doubted. Kverybody In the bus- 
iness world bellpves th*t the Monar- 
chists will win easily. It is reported 
from trustworthy .sources that the Roy- 
alists are properly equipped this time, 
with A full itimplement of arms, am- 
munition, and Held guns, which are al- 
ready "cached" In huge quantities In 
both Northern Spain and Soiithern 
I'ortugal. They are also reported to 
possess two monoplanes. 

Everything seems to he ready for an 
early outbreak, with Don Manuel re- 
ported to he with his leaders some- 
where In .Spanish (ViUcIa, and fully 70 
per cent, of the officers of tin* Hwpub- 
Ucan troops prepared to transfer their 
alleglence to their former king the mo- 
aomeat ht api»«ar« on the scene.

:^ Prove this by asking your 
dealer to show you a D & 
A or a La Diva at $2.50 
and any American or other 

^* imported corset at $3.50. 

Compare the material, the 
finish, the %le. 

We, as experts and manu- 
facturers know that point 
for point our produd will 
at lea^ equal the imported 
article coding you $3.50. 

The reason is that when 
retailers buy a D & A or 
a La Diva they pay only 




the co^ of manufacturings 
plus a legitimate profit, 
whereas on the imported 
corset 35% duty is levied. 

The duty adds nothing to 
wearing quality or ^yle but 
does add one dollar to the 
'- price. 

We are proud to state that 
under the British Flag or in 
the United States there is 
no finer, no better equipped 
corset factory than ours, 
nor is there a more efficient 
and better trained staflf of 
corset workers anywhere in 
the world. 

The ^eady growth of 
oui business, shows that 
Canadian Women 



appreciate the quality and 
price of D & A and La 
Diva Corsets, as our fadory 
is by far the larger corset 
fadory in Canada. 

If you have no money to 
bum, examine the D & A 
and the La Diva Corsets 
and unless you are swayed 
by prejudice you will not 
favor the imported corset.

"SPECIAL SELECTED" is 
pure unadultered whisky 
with no added flavor or 
artificial color. 
The flavor is the natural 
sweetness of ripe old grain. 
Years of mellowing in 
charred oak barrels at an 
evenly warm temperature 
gives the gojlden glow. 
That harsh, fiery, smoky 
taste of ordinary wKisky is 
entirely lacking. 
You will find it very 
pleasant 

You can buy a

ment Seal at any 
first class hotel or

You will find the experience and expeft knowledge of ouf 
decorators helpful. Trained in the art of harmonious furnish- 
ing, they are able to offer valuable suggestions or to work with 
you in developing your original ideas. At the present time 
fumed oak is being used considerably in the furnishing of par- 
ticular rooms, and as the native fir, used largely in interior 
finishing for houses, takes a fumed oak stain remarkably well, 
this finish makes a very attractive room. It goes well with a 
number of shades of brown, green, blue or terra cotta, and 
makes rich combinations. The services of our decorative spe- 
cialists are yours to command at any time. 



Handsome 10-Piece Dining Room 

Suite, $168.15 

This attractive Dining-room Suite comes in the fumed oak. It consists of one 8ft. Ex- 
tension Table, one Buffet with mirror back, one China Cabinet, one Dinner Wagon, five Din- 
ing Chairs and one Arm Chair with leather upholstered seats. The chairs are not exactly 
like picture We have onlv a limited number of these suites, so don't delay. The exceptional- 
ly reasonable price of $168.15 is net and for cash. This is the only way we can sell thjs suite 
at this price, because it is absolutely at rock bottom. We would like you to come and inspect 
this offer on .our third floor and see how you can own it. 

Fumed Oak Buffet, size of top 22 x 50, British bevel mirror 16 x 40.' Fumed Oak Arm

The New Popularity of Body Carpets 





We have just received a large shipment of body car- 
pets embracing a variety of charming designs. For aev- 
eral years past rugs have found a wide vogue principally 
because they were easier cleaned than the more or leas 
flt&tlonar^'carpet. But, since the advent of the vacuum 
cleaner and Its perfection the main objection to body 
carpet has been removed and the old style •of floor cov- 
ering Is re-establishing Its- popularity In the very beat 
homes In the country. With a vacuum cleaner the body 
carpet has many points over the rug. It dispenses with 
"Knee drill," as there ere no polished floors to wipe dally, 
sanitation Is assured and a dc-ilrable ccslness foreign to 
rug-covered roomr. Is attained. We are showing, on the 
second floor, a splendid assortment of Axmlnaters, Wil- 
tons and Brussels. Th« Axmlnster'a deep, luxurious pile 
and soft shading recommends it to favor. Tha Brussels, 
one of the best known weaves, Is noted for hard-wearing 
qualities, ta easily awept and retains pattern life to the 
last shred. The Wilton la a beautiful carpet with a short, 
close, luatrous pile. For durability and all-round aatlB- 
factlon It oan hardly be surpassed.
