LONDON, Dec. 11.— Mr. Arthur J. 
Balfour, Lord President of the Coun- 
cil, in a speech today in London on 
world reconstruction, said: 

"One of the greatest of our Allies 
reelB that it cannot go through with 
us to the end In this process of re- 
construction. I am not going to

Mr. Balfour described the part the 
United States played in the war us 
noble and disinterested, with no

are grateful," he continued, "but I 
confess I had dreams that a work so 
nobly begun would 'be effectively 
carried through."

Balfour expressed the opinion 
that the future of the world would be 
assisted incalculably if the great Eng- 
lish-speaking nations wbrked to- 
gether in the cause of liberty and 

"I ""low well that hi the cause of 
liberty and peace American co-opera< 
tion will still be forthcoming," he 
said. "I know they are not going to 
abandon it as a nation, and that no 
party In the United States Is going to 
abandon tliese great ideals." 

The speaker said he was bound to 
admit, however, that it seems more 
than likely that "we cannot count to 
the full on direct action, which would 
make the assistance of the great 
American democracy of tenfold value 
should It be forthcoming. 

"Therefore." Mr. Balfour went on. 
U- Is-^nd I, know that what T say 
Will not be misunderstood by Ameri- 
cans, even by those most convinced 
that the true interests of their coun- 
try lie in the opposite direction — to 
me a feeling of deepest regret that 
much of the common work between 
the two countries dhould come to an 
end before its full fruition could be 
enjoyed by the wo rld at large." 



LONDON, Dec. 11. — The British 
Government does not purpose to take 
any special measures in coffinection 
with the fall in American exchange 
beyopd continuing its policy of with- 
holding artificial support by borrow- 
ing abroad and doing everything pos- 
sible to stimulate British export 
trade, according to Mr. Andrew 
Bonar Law. Lord lA-ivy Seal and for- 
mer Chancellor of the Exchequer, re- 
plying to a question in the House of 
Commons this evening. 

LONDON, Dec. 11.— Rt. Hon. Wal- 
ter Hume Longs presentation of the 
revised naval estimates was made to 
the House today. He frankly ad- 
mitted that the Government had not 
decided on its future policy, and It 
was not fair to expect any decIaraUon 
at present. 

"Why not?" asked a member. 

"I will only ask you if you think ft 
reasonable before we know what the 
condlUons will be and before the 
House has had time to settle Itself" 
answered Mr. Long. 

In tho general debate, the most Im- 
portant p«int« raised were the posi- 
tion of the air service in relation to 
the navy; the need for closer co-or- 
dination of tho fighting services, and 
the feasibility of Lord ITshcrs ideas 
for new construction. 

On the second point. Mr. Long ne- 
plied that it would be criminal to 
abandon the great type of warship 
on the ground that the submarine and 
atrshtp 'would replace the naVy. 

On other points Mr. Long was non- 
committal. Sir Fortascue Flannery 
declared nothing would bring union 
between the Mother Country and the 
Dominions so completely as the co- 
ordination of the navy into one great 
Imperial force. 

Sir C. Kinloch-Cooke urged an Im- 
perial conference on naval matters. 

The Morning Post thinks that Mr 
Long is Justified In postponing any 
statement of future policy. It is the 
first time the country has •been 
enabled to feel that the naval require- 
ments are being examined by a prop- 
erly constituted war staff. 

The Board of the Admiralty must 
be guided, adds The Post, by Admiral 
Jellicoe's report, but the sheet anchor 
of Imperial defence is the mainten- 
ance of a war staff consisting of highly 
tralned officers, preserving contin- 
uity of principle and method. i 

Russian Northwest Army, to the Associated Press correspondent. 
Despite reports to the contrary, the bulk of my army still is Intact on 
Russian soil. Only a fifth part of it has been disbanded by tha 
Esthonians. My troops are well supplied with food and other equip- 
ment, except clothes, the lack of which was one of the most cevera 
handicaps in our recent campaign. If we had had mdre cloths with 
which to make uniforms we would have had more soldiers, and tha 
story might have been different."

COPENHAOIQN. Dec. 11.— The 
communications sent by M. Litvlnoff. 
the Russian soviet representative to 
the American. British, f'roneh and 
Italian Ministers here, have been re- 
turned to Litvlnoff. The Ministers 
hold that to take official cognlxance 
of the communications would be a 
breach of faith with Denmark which 
consented to Utvlnoffs presence in 
the country for the purpose of meet- 
ing a British delegate on the ques- 
tjon of the exchange of prisoners

be excluded from his programme.

to the representatives of the Allied 
Powers a copy of a resolution adopted 
by the seventh congress of Soviets 
at Moscow December 6, authorising 
peace negotiations with the Allies. In

DUBLI.X. Dec. n.— Thomas Kelly, 
einn Fein member of parliament, was 
arrested in the course of a number of 
raids by the police and military this 
morning, when the houses of several 
prominent 81nn Fslners ware searched. 
The residences entered by the authorl> 
ties in this process Included the home 
of Count Plunkett. who was absent at 
the tinse of the official visit. 

Several other arrests were made be- 
sides that of Kelly. The prisoners were 
taken to Kingstown in mlllUry lorries. 
They were then placed in boats and 
taken out to a warship, which sailed for 
an Kngllsh port. The approaches to Ae 
hnrbor were guarded by the millUry 
with irhiored cars and ttinks. 

It is rumoiPd that the destination of 
the prlsoaeis is Wormwood Scrubl^s jail, 
in London. 

Kelly was served on Tuesday evening 
with a police magistrate's order to close 
the Sinn FelI^ hsadquarters. which, de- 
spite several raids and its suppression 
by preclasnatlon. has continued In oper- 
ation. The order was not obeyed, the 
headquarters atill being open when the 
raid took place. 

The Mansion House was surroundea 
this afternoon and a seareh of the 
building was carried out by the police 
and troops. 

One haadred policemen aad koe sol* 
diers were engaged. The soldiers, wear. 
ing steel helmets, arrived la motor lor- 
ries and carried rifles with fixed bay- 
oaetsu They were also supplied with 
machine gune. When the Moldlers sur- 
rounded the Mansion Housn the pollco- 
men made a search which occupied 
three-quarters of an beur. There waa 
no disturbance, and the incident wa« 
almest without excitement, only a small 
crowd having . gathered. 

When the eeldiers arrived the first 
belief p-aa, that th« object of their visit 
«* »iare|^^for atnn Felaera whf 
from custody during the 


l*ter. hevever. ^t 

was ro> 

ported that its purpose was the sup- 
pression of the Christmas fair, annually 
held by the Gaelic League for the dis- 
play of Irish manufactures. The fair 
has been, advertised during the past 
fortnight to have its opening tonight. 

The. Sinn Feiner leaders ace not try- 
ing to avoid arrest. »ome of them were 
walking the streets of the city 4ung 
after the raids had taken place. 

The police declined tbis afternoon to 
give out the number of arresu made. 
It was then said that the fair would 
not be suppressed. CoL Johnson, the 
chief of police, explained to the Mayor 
that the policemen on duty had reported 
that meetings of the Irish Volunteers 
arc being held at the Mansion House. 
It was learned, however, that the report 
was erroneous, added Col. Johnson, and 
the holdltag of the Christmas fair would 
be permitted and the police and troops 

It was learned this afternoon that the 
prisoners being deported on the warship 
Include more than a dosen men arrested 
throughout the Prorlnces. although no 
news of raids or arrests ouUide of 
Dublin had been received up to a late 
hour by the Dublin newspapers. 

Tonight, after the stotus of the 
Christmas fair had been regarded as 
fhially settled, the Lord Mayor an- 
nounced that he had been notified by 
the Government that the fair would not 
be allowed. The reason supposedly was 
that the fair was under the auspices 
of the Gaelic League, which organisa- 
tion had been proscribed. 

Modlflcatlone of the Governments 
order banning motor cars, exempting 
lorHes of more than three tons, from 
the provisions, brought many of these 
ent on the streets again but the trades 
unions refused permission to drivers to 
operate the lorries and 'they dlaappnared 
sgalB. The trade union order applied 
to towns In South and West Ireland

WINNIPEG, Dec. 11.— Sergeant 
Fred O. Coppins, who won the Vic- 
toria Cross in the war. and who got 
two Hbs broken In the course of 
the riot at the corner* of Portage 
and Main. June 10, was one of tho 
witnesses called by the Crown at 
the trial today of R, B. Russell, 
charged with seditious , conspiracy. 
He told tho court that bottles and 
stones were being thrown by peo- 
ple in the crowd, that he was hit in 
the ribs, and that his pony was hit 
by something and ran away. Under 
cross-examination. Sergt. Coppins as- 
serted that an evening paper's re- 
port of the affair, so far as he was 
concerned, was false and that he had 
not been pulled down at all. 

Captain Dunwoody, Calgary, who 
was In charge of the squadron of 
mounted special police detailed to 
keep order on the streets, spoke of 
the crowd at the comer of Portage 
and Main as being extremely hos- 
tile, of the missies that were thrown, 
and of what he claimed to be the 
necessity for charging through the 
throng as the only moans of clear- 
ing the streets for traffic. The state- 
ment In the Strike Bulletin that "the 
police had been replaced by thugs,** 
he stigmatised as a "damnable lie" 
pointing out that the "specials" were 
returned soldiers who had boon In 
the Infantry, arullery and cavalry, 
and that they Included majors, staff 
captains and lieutenantg. 

An Interesting point an to state- 
meaU which had been attributed to 
Sergt. Coppins developed in the 
course of Ihn cross-examination of 
Captain Dunwoody. Deeh-ous of mak- 
ing out that the V.C. hero had not 
been pulled from hki horse and kick- 
ed. Mr. MoMurray aeked the nltnisn 
If he would ba suryrtoed to be told 
I that iergcant Coppins find poeHIr^ 

denied this. CapUin Dunwoody's 
reply was that he would not be sur- 
prised, as Sergeant Coppins became 

"But Sergaan^t Coppins said at the 
preliminary heahng that he was not 
unconscious." said counsel for tho 
defence, a remark that brought the 
retort: 'Sergeant Coppins would not 
know that he was unconsclotts." 

Another special police witness waa 
J. W. Ogden. who testified to guns 
being fired by persons in the crowd 
which had gathered In the neighbor- 
hood of tbe police sUtlon prior to 
the final riot near the city hall Ho 
admitted, when cross-examined, that 
the crowd at the isomer of Portage 
and Main on June 10. did not come 
with rifles and swords armed for 
battle, but that the specUl police had 
Just been greeted with "boos" and 
that naturally If a "special" hit a 
man op the head with a baton that 
man would resent it. but maintained 
that the police had not drawn clubs

flatly re(«Hod to obey the mandate 
of the aubporna served on htm by

declined, both upon request snd then 
apon direct inatruotion from the 
chairman, to produce documenta and 
papers received by him from hla 
aovernment, or copies of his corre- 
spondence and reports to it. 

Martens declined to answer ques- 
tions ooBcernlnv his doaltnss with 
Russia, and stated point-blank that 
he had sent all his confidential files 
beyond the confines of New York 
State, out of the Jurisdiction of the 
letislatlve committee. They are still 
In the United ,8tates, ha added, and 
admitted that he could produce them 
at any time If he so desired. 

Assemblyman Martin, acting chair- 
man of the committee, told Martens 
that he Would be ndtltled what ac- 
tion the committee would take on 
hla refusal to produce the (papers 
subpoenaed and to answer questions. 
Martens smiled, nodded his head and 
said: "Thank yob." 

The "ambassador," when asked to 
produce the papers read into the 
record a statement prepared for him 
by his lawyers, giving what purported 
to be his reasons for declining to de- 
liver the required documents. Diplo-

authorities, and quoted iVom John 
Hay, U.S. Secretary of State under 
President Roosevelt, to bear out his 
contention that as a representative of 
a de facto government regardless of 
recognition, he was entitled to enjoy 
"diplomatic privileges." He said he 
refused "on principle" to produce the 
papers sought, and because he had 
no authority from his government 
to do so. Then he added that there 
was "nothing to conceal in his cor- 

He identified a photographic copy 
of hie appointment by the Russian 
soviet government to represent it 
here. Then he testified that as many 
as ten pieces of correspondence had 

Sen delivered to him by ten dif- 
rent couriers from Russia, some of 
whose names he refused to dlviilge. 
He said he had never procured or 
issued passports for any of these men*, 
or anyone else. 

Martens said the soviet agency in 
Stockholm was in charge of a Mr. 
Strom, a memt>er of the Swedish Par- 
liament. He declined to say where 
other agencies were located, or who 
conducted them. Many of the couriers 
and much of the mall between Mar- 
tcAis and Soviet Russia passed tfTrough 
the Stockholm agency. Martens said 
he received in that way some of the 
$90,000 sent hlra by his government. 



THE HAGUE, Dec. 11. — "If prevl- 
ously we have not regarded him as 
a danger to our country, he is now 
proving to . be a, danger," said De- 
puty Sannes, in the 0|iamber today, 
referring to former Emperor Wil- 
liam of Germany. 

The deputy was dealing with a 
book written by Carl Kautsky, a 
German Socialist, which Sannes de- 
clared said the German Emperor 
was the cause of the world war. The 
data in the book is said to have 
been obtained from official archives 
in Berlin. 

Deputy Sannes asked the Govern- 
ment to reconsider the question of 
the sojourn at Amerongen of the 
former Einperor, and seriously to 
consider the question of extradl- 

Thli^ incident constituted the first 
serious anti-Kaiser movement to

MUNICH, Dbc. 11. — In a letter ad- 
dressed to the president of the Ba- 
varian Red Cross, former Crown 
Prince Rupprecht, of Bavaria, who 
commanded Oerman armies in Bel- 
glum and France during the war, 
and who is in Switzerland, offers to 
surrender himself to the demands of 
the Entente for the extradition of 
German army leaders, provided that 
his action will bring about tbe re- 
lease of Oerman prisoners in France. 

The fonnor Crown Prince says the 
demand for extradition. In view of 
the 'fact that the Judge and prose- 
cutor are one. is a mockery of every 
senst of Justice. He volunteers, how- 
ever, that if the Entente Inaista upon 
the fulfillment of the extradition 
clause in the peace treaty before the 
Oerman prisoners are releaaed, be 
will present himself for extradition.

ture Ulster members Interjected the 
remark that it would be desirable 
to clear the ground by a discontinu- 
ance of the '"programme of murder

whereby the arrival in p-M feet con- 
dition to polnU In the Cmtod States 
of fruit shipments from this district , 
is guaranteed b> the lal.'way. which 
wllj provide hehtcd cars and send out

The iiicressed cost varies accord-

The TJITIzens' Committee scored a 
sweeping in the aldermanic 
contest, all four of its candidute.s 
winning out. They are Mr. George

lawyer; Capt. Kred Shouldlce, re- 
turned veteran and lawyer, and Aid. 
Frank I'Yeeze. manager of the Cil- 
gary branch of the Canadian Credit 
Agency. The two other aldermen 
chosen were re-elected for two yea is. 
They are Aldermen A. G. Broatch. 
a Labor candidate and enthusiastic 
advocate of the O.B.U., and Mrs. 
Annie Gale, whose tendency has been 
to support labor ideas In the coun- 

The two Labor candidates won 
largely through the system of pro- 
portional representation voting. The 
surprise, however, was in the defeat 
of Mr. James Ilae and .Mr. Walter 
Smitten, the regular labor candidates, 
by Mr. Broatch and .Mrs. Oale. This 
was largely due to the split in labor 
ranks in the fight over the O.B.I'. 
Successful candidates for the 
School Board were Mr. K. S. Selwood 
and Mrs. R I.,angfora. endorsed by 
the Citizens' Committee, and Mr. R.

OTTAWA. Dec. 11. - Inspector- 
Qcneral Sir Arthur Currle has arrived 
In Ottawa to take over the duties at- 
Uched to hl« office. He in accom- 
panied by I.ady Currie jind family 
and is at proHcnt a guest at the 
Chateau Laurler. 

General Curric, speaking of the 
progress of re-establishment of the 
soldiers, said that in the rural dis- 
tricts of the West and British Colum- 
bia, he had found the returned men 
were fairly well established In civil 
life again. In the towns and ciiieH 
however, while many were at work, 
there were a great number still seek- 
ing for congenial employment. 

British Columbia, he said, has had 
to face a serious problem in that from 
16.000 to 17.000 more men had been 
discharged there than were enlisted 
In the province. The facilities of that 
province were hardly equal lo taking 
care of the task with which it was 
faced. Many of the industrial con- 
cerns In the west were doing all they 
could to get the returned men into 
civil occupations, but It was a hard 
matter to handle all of them. 

Sir Arthur considered that there 
was need of a broad, statesmanlike 
policy of giving •employment to the 
returned soldiers, otherwise there was 
bound to be some hardship durin* 
this Winter. *

Mr. A. J. Balfour'a rttproaeh to the 
American Senate for falltnc to ratify 
the Peace Treaty M esopUltely 
forded. It U not a reproach in the 
neual aoceptaboe of the word, but it 
Ip an expreealon of deep-eeated re> 
^t that America haa sot seen flt to 
earry the work of co-operation In 
Che remaking of Che world to the end. 
The part of the United Statoa la the 
^ar, said Mr. Balfoar, "wa« noble 
and dWntereeUd. with no thought of 
national ambition. I had dreams 
that^aiJKwrk ao nobly begun would be 
effecUvely carried through." The 
|reat British statesman has voiced 
Oct only the feeling of this Empire 
fcut of all the Allied world. The ac- 
tion of the American fienate haa cast 
a damper on a great hope of humanr 
Ity, for there Is no denying tha^ tre- 
|nendons faith was baaed oil the 
»ugust tribunal to be known as the 
League of Nations. It was imper" 
atlve, and atlU la, that the League 
should acquire the trust of the world 
in lU early days, and that it would 

"^ satisfy the spirit of Justice which is 
Inherent in mankind. America's de- 
_ fecUon has, to 0dm«e«tei^t,\. dissipated 
this hope, and it is upon this account 
that Mr. Balfour has had to Toiee 
his feelings of .regx|»t. 

Without the United Btatee as a 
member the League of Nations will 
constitute at its inception a new con- 
cert of Europe, for even If Japan la 
included ahe will not exercise much 
direct influence on Europeah affa4rJi, 
although she plays a very deflhlte 
part in world hiatory. In ita easance 
the League waa to atand for demo- 
cratic freedom, social Justice, econ- 
omic progress and political morality. 
It was to bring Ameriftati' mflvetrce to 
bear up^ the tangled affairs o^ the 
Old World as a oouaterpolse to the 
political dlsputM ahd' - •traditional 
enmities' which have existed through 
the centurlea Without America the 
League merely splits Europe in 
twain, for Russia and. Qermany for 
some time to corn's^ will Mtve no part 
In lU deliberations. With America 
the League would have been a power- 
ful Instrument for world betterment, 
and ita existence, fortified with the 
virile strength of the Kew World. 
Would have brought ab«nt Che main- 
tenance of just conditions of peace, 
and prevented wars developing be- 
cause of its combination of moral and 
material power. 

It ddea net re<tuire American ratl- 
flcation to bring about & condition of 
peace between the Entente nations 
and Germany, for the United States 
was not a party to the Declaration of 
LondOB. Peace will be ratified within 
the next few weeks, but not the 
peace of the world, for war will still 
persist, and because of the American 
Senate's action 1C\ Is possible that 
belief In the sincerity of Anglo-Saxon 
idealism will die. The niAlona of 
Europe, atniggUng for politloal. ao- 
oial and economic regeneration, have 
loOlBM «0Mthe tjnite* Stataa fmr help 
hv their hour of need, but now they 
B«^ thai assistance withdrawn at a 
tiptoe when It is most required. Mr. 
BiPfour has not over-emphasized in 
iail^ respect what the actlpn of the 
Altherlcan Senate means. On the 

\«^trary, he has not attempted to 
cilftlclze because he does not wish to 
pftftnd any American ausoeptlbUlties. 
VEQiat haa happened, however, will 
oAatltute ^e of the greateat regreta 
PCmodern tlmea, for every day which 
pa^s leqaena the likelihood of 
Alberloa'a partlolpatlon in the Ideal, 
w|ileh, by a atrange Irony, was flrat 
ptt before the peoples by her own 
xyssident. Th»- danger of the effect 
uiyon the world la that httmanlty will 
be diallltfslonad and lU fkici; In Ideal- 
la^ aa a political foroa will be de- 


thoae employeea who beoome aervants 
of the State. If this could be over- 
come, and if everything savoring of 
party politics coold be dtvereed from 
Government ownership, t^ere woald 
be a more wMespread deaire for the 
reform. X§ matters atand at present 
Mch owrieraklp la a retrograde step 
as far as railways ar« concerned. It 
Is a new patriotism, that Is wanted to 
make Government ownership a aae- 


Mr. W. F. Tt*» m leading authoHty 
oa Canadian railways, estimate* that 
thb annual loss to the OMintry 
through Government ownership will 
be from 140,000,000 to |<0,D60,000. 
Thia will have to be n^de good by 
Xhe taxpayers until such time as the 
coantry develops or until a system 
ot,.b*tter bttslaaas management than 
haa hitherto prevailed la Introduced. 
«i^ Is not pleasant to thiak of this 
ootlatant drain on the 'ebuntnr*a 
monetary reaouroea at a time et re- 
coaatmctlon, and when the national 
««A^ la so lacga. The Uhlted States, 
ratfier than eontlnue to face a heavy

It to ladlapnlaM* «Kat men ^rtti'^ot 
wdilC ao well for a Ctevemment as 
for a private tmplaifar. ' The reason 
oT the parehology which governs

9^pr a )o«g .time ^ter the 6th 
Regiment band went «ut ef existence 
public opinion waa ^issgtiafled be- 
cause of the lack of a moaloal or- 
ganlaatloa af the kind In the city.' 
The Great War Veterans' Association 
haa aupplled the deflclency and haa 
been suoceasful In getting together a 
good band under the charge of Band- 
master Miller, who conducted the 
First Division band in France. The 
majority of the mualolans engaged 
have represented Canada in the 
massed bands at the front. Each 
Sunday Arenlng this hand gives con- 
certs at Pantages Theatre, but ^lle 
tl^e are always crowded attendances 
the flBanelal support is very meagre. 
Now the situation I' that ualess there 
Is public support for the O.W.V.A. 
band It .will be dissolved. 

The majarity of the bandamea are 
unemployed. They are reoelvlng 
tempting offers to join other bands, 
with employment offered as a bait. 
It is an extraordinary thing that when 
large Crowds assemble to hear Sunday 
concerts they are not disposed to pay 
suflScient for the entertainments to 
cover the expenaes of the muslcianji. 
An illustration of what we mean by 
this is furnlahod by the fact that at 
last Sunday's concert a tally was kept 
on the coUectlona from 30 people for 
whom room waa found In the theatre 
after the doors, were closied. Exactly 
Si cents wtts tjlelr subscription, and 
this furnishes an indication of the 
character of the support the public 
are giving to the musical organiza- 
tion which well deserves popularity 
and financial assistance. Hitherto 
the local branch of the O.W.V.A. has 
guaranteed the expenses for the 
Sunday night concerts, but unless 
there 'Is better support forthcoming 
the band will cease to exist. 

Surely It is of snfllcient Importance 
to the pe<?ple of Victoria to keep this 
band in eJCl^t^nce. Ike large at- 
tendances which it attracts to con- 
certs 'show the desire of the people 
for music but . bands now-a-days 
cannot eXUit on \ popularity alone. 
Irresiiective of purely business con- 
siderations, it should be a pleasure 
for the people of Victoria to support 
a musical organisation drawn from 
the l-ahka of the Great War Veterans. 
Possibly it la through she<^ Ignorance 
of the circumstances that conditions 
are what they are. If that la the 
case, we hope thi^ mention of the 
possibility of the band going out of 
existence, through cpathy towards its 
upkeep, will remind the people that 
tangible proof of their desire for its 
continuance la required. 


The Tovng Women's Christian 
Association Is making a modest re- 
quest on public generosity in its desire 
to secure 11,000 to rbmove the in- 
debtedness which rests on the in- 
stitution. A tag day for the purpose 
of raising this amount will be held 
tomorrow. Thosa who know the 
activities of the organisation and the 
influence for good It has been in the 
communitj^will be only too willing to 
help. Such an instrument for social 
betterment should net be allowed to 
renfafn In debt; for where' debt exists 
there is always worry, and good work 
is marred. The small amount sought 
cah be readily subscribed by the 
people without a single person feel- 
ing there is any sacrifice Involved. 
Tomofrow's tag day gtvei the public 
an opportunity to make a Christmas 
offering to the T.W.C.A. It should 
be a thankoffering for the work 
which the energetic ladles of that 
organisation have been privileged to 
do on behalf of their sisterhood. 


The WlU-o'-tlie-Wlap of Natk>nal< 

If wo assume, for the sake of argu- 
ment, that the mines are nationalized. 
It la quite certain that the public will 
see that the management and finance 
of a nationalized Industry are effec 
tually removed from the sphere of 
politics, and that direct action is met 
by counter'actlon. And In that case 
v^at will the miners' gaint They 
will by no means gain posseealon of 
the mines, for what the State holds, it 
holds, with all the massive pressure 
of public opinion behind it We are 
willing to be enlightened, but we do 
not at present see any gain accruing 
to the miners. But we can clearly 
perceive what they will lose. They

VANCOUVER, Dec. n.--"lt is the 
opinion that the aims, of the Germans 
in their present attitude towards the 
AlIieH are to gain as nnich time as 
possible." ^id Dr. B. J. Dillon, the 
correspondent for The London Tele-' 
graph on the Continent of Europe 
for many years, and Vho is consid- 
ered one of the greatest living au- 
thorities on'^uropean national ques- 
tions. On. a trip through America, 
chiefly for ^reci-efttlon purposes. Dr. 
Dilibn arrived in Vancouver late last 
night, and will stay a few days In 
the city before resuming his Journey 
to California, where he will spend the 
■yvinter. f 

Dr. Dillon does not beIle^■e that the 
Oermnns h.ave any Intention of re- 
newlng hostilities, or that they are 
sf-rlously prepared for such a move 
us yet. 

"AVhile the German Oovernmont .at 
prejient is of the opinion that the 
.ncceptanco of the Allied demands 
will put an end to their production, 
and thus to the possibilities of re- 
cuporalion. there is no doubt that 
they do not contemplate serious rc- 
Mlstunoe to the Allies." said Dr 

"Their aim is to gain time, and 
they will. IC It comes to that, allow 
the Allies to occupy parts of Oei- 

Regarding Klume and Italy, Dr. 
I Dillon said: 

"The principal cause of the present 
deadlock wa.s the uncompromising at- 
titude of President Wilson at Ihe 
peace conference. • If Premier Or- 
lando of Italy had been dealt with in 
a Klve-and-lake spirit, the probltras 
wt.uld not tlow exist, but as things 
stand now T nm afraid that there Is 
.very little to he done. The question 
should have been considered as an 
economical problem with Italy, and 
on a very broad basis, for Italy Is 
hard pjr<<ssed for raw material, but 
instead of that It narrowed down, 
under the un.<ompromlsing attitude of 
PreaJdont Wil.'«on. until now the, end 
of the difficulty cannot be foreseen.

KER.VIE. Dec. 11.— The Provincial

S. H. Winn, chairman of the Work- 
men's Compensation Doard. chair- 
man. Mrs. c. Spofford. Dr. T. C. 
Green and D. MoCallum. arrived In 
the city tonight from Penticton, 
where the last session was held. Al- 
though lite in arriving, evidence was 
taken dealing with the questions of 
mothers' pen.sions. maternity bene- 
■ ■ "'""'^ fiealtfi iftstti^nce and pub- 
llc health nursing. 

Representatives were present from 
various fraternal societies, ladies- 
benevolent societies, CJ.W.V.A. auxili- 
ary, the miners' organization, the 
parent teachers' association. the 
medical profession. Mayor Uphill and 
others. Representatives of the frater- 
nal orders favored the principle of 
Inaugtiratlng a feasible state health 
control scheme, and a particularly 
urgent appeal was made for the im- 
mediate ostaillshment within the 
Province of an institution for the 
treatment of tuberculosis patient.x, to 
relieve the present totally inadequate 
accommodation, with regard to pub- 
He nurslns. it was the consensus of 
opinion that if this w^as supervised 
In communities by such as the Vic- 
torian Order of Nurses: it would al- 
leviate present unsatisfactory con- 
ditions. « 

During the session some of the 
witnesses took occasion to crlUclz.^ 
the operation of the Workmen's 
Compensation Act, the inad^quuio' 
amount paid to dependent widows 
and families being ono objection 
While William Robson. representing 
the 'minors,, was emphatic that If -tlm 
proposed legi-slatlon placed the coni- 
pen.safion board In charg.^ of th(. ad- 
ministration. Ms organization would 
be strongly opposed to any such sys- 
tem. The miners concurred in iho 
theory of health insurance and tho i 
subsidiary departments' outlined.

opinion, speaking of locnl conditions

Exh'fbition Now on View at 
New Drill Hall Is of Unique 
Interest in Telling Phase of 
Story of War. 

Nothing really more "worth whUe" 
than the British Naval Photographe, 
now on view at the New Drill Hall, 
has come to Victoria for many a 
long day. This is the v^dlct of any- 
one who has visited the exhibition 
up to the present, and it is certain 
tj be the verdict of any of Vne hun- 
dreds who have the experience in 
store for one of the eight remaining 
days during which the pictures will 
continue to be shown. 

The formal opening took place 
yesterday afternoon. His Honor the 
Lileutenant-Qovernor being presetit 
for the purpose. He was received on 
his arrival at the Drill Hall by 
Major-General R. G. B. Leckie, 
C.M.O., G.O.C.. and Captain E. H. 
Martin. C.M.G.. R.N., and their re- 
spective staffs, and there was per- 
haps no more Interested visitor than 
His Honor, who spent some time in- 
specting the gallery. 

The pictures, which are about two 
hundred In number, fill the whole 
of the east end of the Drill Hall, 
big screens having been erected be- 
tween the main walls for the pur- 
pose of accommodating these greatly 
enlarged and colored photographs. 
As photographs alone they would 
compel attention. being superb 
examples of "camera" art. Doubt- 
less such a collection, quite regard- 
loss of subject, would attract hun- 
dreds of amateur photographers In 
the ordinary way, but when the 
unique Interest of the subjects por- 
trayed l.H also taken Into considera- 
tion It Is little to be wondered at 
that the exhibition tB"creatlng such 
a sensation wherever it is being 

NaniclesM and Xam«d 
Most of thi- pictures have titles 
with interesting little explanatory 
fucts set out in the catalogues in con- 
nection with each. This portion of 
the exhibition is by far the greater 
part. But there are In addition many 
large "canvases" which are uncata- 
logued. and which make a superb 
supplement to the wonderful record 
of navy life which is shown else- 

The massive picture of the Vin- 
dictive, which measures twenty-five 
feel by seventeen feet, is wonder- 
fully rrallstlc. Hung Just above the 
platform It^ representi» with stereo- 
scopic vividness the stem old batter- 
ed ship, as she appeared on ' her re- 
turn- from Zeebrugge, her rusted fun- 
nels gaping, her turrets packed 
rnund with seamen's mattresses, the 
scars of war on all sides, yet g^rim 
and formidable. 

One has to search further along 
the gallery to find the chart of Zee- 
brugge Mole. Herp are two. side by 
side, which recall the description 
given by Captain Carpenter of the 
blocklns: episode when he was here 
lecturing. In one appear the block 
ships which wore blown up and sunk. 
Imniodiatoly facing the entrance is a 
photograph of the Vindictive before 
she went into the Zeebrugge affair 
— a trim enough ship, little resem- 
bling the tattered hero of the daring 
raid which has gone down into hl.s- 
torj' as one of the most gallant epi- 
sodes of the war. 

The Bout Picture 
Some authorities declare that the 
silhouette of a signaller is the best 
example of the photographer's skill 
represented in the gallery-. People 
who have studied the catalogue in 
advance and Jl^e not yet seen the 
pictures have wondered what it Is 
that "an unknown wit" chalked on 
the big gun which is shown In No. 
129. The picture has to be sorn for 
the humor of the inscription to be 
appreciated, tor it shows an enor- 
mous gun. the weight of which 
could not be estimated in less than 
tons, with "Not to be carried at the 
slope" chalked in irreguUi* letters 
on its flanks. 

Looking at some of these photo- 
graphs one cannot help wondering 
how anyone had the temerity and 
presence of mind to take pictures 
during moments which must have 
been potent with danger. There are 
several representing giant explosions, 
(for Instance four hundred pounds 
of T.N.T. goes bang), one shows the 
blowing up of a derllct. another is a 
photograph of a German suhmarine 
holding up a Spanish mail boat; 
there is a submarine in the act of 
diving, the officer In charge shown 
\waiching the indicator which de- 
notes the depth; there Is the pic- 
ture of an officer looking through 
a periscope of a submarine, th« sub- 
marine below water; and there is 
the wardroom of a submarine which 
Is at the bottom of the sea, the cap- 
tain sitting reading, another officer 
examining charts, and one of the 
"hands" preparing a meal. The cold 
side, the exposed side, of naval life 
Is everywhere apparent. Very llt'le 
is shown that mi^ht indicate any- 
thing of luxury or ease In the life 
of the sailor, to offset the life of In- 
cessant vigilance and hard ▼•ork. 

The Navy League ' officers were 
well represented yesterday. Mr. Rav- 
enhill. chairman of the Victoria 
branch; Mrs. Neroutsos. Mr. H. J. 
Davis, Mrs. Thomson. Mr. Seymour 
Green. Mr. T. Wright Hill, Captain 
Brans, and many others bein« pres- 
ent. The Mayor and some of the city 
offlelaUi also were among th« visit- 
ors during the afternoon. 

Afternoon tea is being serred 
every day in oonnectlon with the 
exhibition, and various organisations 
are lending their auspices to differ- 
ent days, yesterday and the previous 
day,, for Instance, being under the 
auspices of the Municipal and Navy 
Leairue Chapters, I.O.D.B.

Provincial Commission Mal<e 
•Recommendations to Fed- 
eral Government in Belialf of 
Men From Overseas. 

That pending the time when the 
soldier settler's Investment provides 
him with returns, the Soldier Settle- 
ment Hoard of Canada should make 
provision for llvln^j expenses of the 
settler Is the Klst of a resolution which 
the I'rovlnelul Returned Soldler.s' 
ComnilRsion has forwarded to Mr. W. 
,T. Black, chairman of the Federal 
Bettlement Board. The resolution as follows: 

"At a meetlns of the B.C. Returned 
SoWler e«mnn4s«i«»n — held —todays — t>he 
following rosolution was carried 
unanimously: ', in a great 
number of cases of returned soldiers 
settling on the land under the Soldier 
Settlement Board, owing to inade- 
quate provision having bnen made to 
provide for necessary living expenses 
until such time as the farms can 
bring in an income and as a conse- 
quence there is a great deal of dis- 
tress existent among such ixien and 
their families. Be it resolved, that the 
Federal Government be requested to 
take note ot this state of affairs with 
a view to providing immediate neces- 
sary assistance out of the forty mil- 
lion dollars appropriated for relief. 
Application to this commission for 
assistance of this nature is Increasing 
dally, having reached as high as six- 
teen in one day." - 
The comnileslon has also gone on I 
record as favoriutj the removal by 
the Federal Government of the pres- 
ent age restriction on soldiers who 
desire to resume their educational 
studies interrupted when they enlisted 
for servlcp overseas. A resolution to 
that effect has been forwarded to the 
Federal authorlMos. After setting 
forth the fact that the Dominion has 
recognized the nec-^ssity for specially 
cartnff for the soldier who enlisted 
imoier the age of eighteen years, and 
.IS the. training of .-i large number of 
men was interfered with by their en- 
listment, and, further, as it has been 
revealed to the B.C. Commlsfion that 
an altogether unfair burden has been 
placed upon these ir.en by the refusal 
to grant thoni any measure of as- 
sistance towards rehabilitating them- 
selves by completing their education 
and training, .ind it In not In the best 
Interests of the country that such 
men should be added to the .army of 
unskilled labor, the commission's 
resolution says: 

"Be It resolved that the Federal 
Government be approached with a 
view to having the age restriction re- 
moved so that each and every soldier 
who can show that his opportunity to 
educate himself to All the place to 
which his natural bent and Inclina- 
tion Inclined him has been retarded, 
shall be given an opportunity to com- 
plete such education or training with 
the assistance of the Federal Oovorn- 
ment, either by a free grant or by a 
partial grant and partial loSn, pro- 
vided always that such continuation 
of education or t raining shall be 
under the supervision of the Federal 

The above resolution will be for- 
jvarded by the commission to all 
badles having to d'^ with the welfare 
of the returned men and to all service 
organizations, to the end that they 
may ajso make similar recommenda- 
tions to the Dominion Government.,

MU^WAUKBB. Dec. 11.— Jimmy 
Wilde, altboucb accepting tho ver- 
dict of the press In good spirit, has 
a complaint he wishes to make. 

Jimmy thinks that public senti- 
ment influenced the decision in last 
Saturday's bout with Jack Sharkey, 
and he Is so positive of his victory 
thftt he doubts very much whether 
Sharkey would even be considered 
by Bnrltsh matchmakers for a trip 
overseas and a bout in Ixindon. 

"I understand that all the deci- 
sions have gone against p»e," said 
Wilde, "but I am positive that had 
the fight been I fought in England I 
would have won easily. I do not 
think there was any doubt about It. 
even though I did not fight my usual 

"I know I was not in the best of 
condition for the battle. But, even 
so, I think I won and won, hkndlly. 
Sharkey's blows were mostly in my 
elbows and around my head and 
shoulders. He crossed and shook me 
once in the third round, but I wa« 
never In danger and was never 
bothered by his blows."

VANCOUVER, Dec. 11. — The "six- 
beat, dpuble-gUde crawl" Is the latest 
in swimming strokes, (uid several of 
Vancouver's leading speed aquatic 
stars are trying to master the intrica- 
cies of this wonderful stroke which 
Norman Cox, former coach at Colum- 
bia University Athletic Clubs, has In- 
troduced here. Every Friday even- 
ing members of the Vancouver Ama- 
teur A. S. C. turn out In force at 
Chalmers tank for a course under the 
able leadership of Mr. Cox, and they 
are already showing great Improve- 
ment. Among the regular attendants 
are Messrs. Brydone-Jack, Stevens, 
,Claman, Grainger, Ross. Barrett, 
Moore, Austin. Ayling. Steele, Len 
Stokes. Jim Steele, Bob Orllten, Aus- 
tin jr., and the brothers Hays- All of 
these swimmers are taking up the 
new stroke which Is used by Norman 
Ross, Duke Kahanaraoku, Perry Mc- 
OiUivray and other famous American

MONTREAL. Dec. 11. — Three uni- 
versities, McGlll. Queen's and Toronto,

season. Each club will have two 
games at home, as in the Rugby 
Union, the opealng game aoheduled 
to be played between McOill and 
Qaaen'H on local loe on Janutiry 24. 

"American swimmers lead the 
world today because they swim more 
scientlflcally than ever before. ' mated 
Mr. Cox In discussing the new stroke 
and the wonderful speed attained by 
It. They swim more 'naturally.' More 
truly In accord with the laws of 
anatomy, physiology, mechanics and 
hydrostatics. Propulsion is contin- 
uous, yet the body Is under leas 
strain than formerly. Breathing Is 
more full and regular and the mus- 
cles relax more between efforts. Like .^.^.^.... f.^.....

both sides of tho body perform slnl-

body do an equal amount of effective 
work and get an equal amount of res^ 
"In regard to the arms, the range 
of their positive or "pulling" move- 
ments is enormously increased while 
the negative of "gettlng-ready" 
movements are reduced to minimum 
of exertion. The arms In the racing 
stroke of today move relatively 
slower than ever before. On the 
other hand the legs move relatively 
faster, but with leas exertion than in 
the older styles of swimming. Their 
negative, gettlng-ready or stoppage 
movements have been so reduced as 
to be practically eliminated altogether 
and throughout the whole sequence ot 
cycle of movements rhythm has been 
added to a marked degree. The re- 
sult of this new combination of move- 
ments and rhythmical effort is that, 
instead of the body either stopping 
between exertion or having to be 
dragged along by main* strength and 
rapid movem<fi«its of the arms, it now 
"planes" forward at a surprising rate 
between each half of the stroke, while

Asked for a name that would clear-

Cox replied that it was best described 
as a "six-beat, double-glide crawl." 

Bohlad the TUnca 

Pressed for an opinion on the possi- 
btUtles for swimming in British Co« 
lumbia the coach states that he is de> 
lighted with Vancouver's prospects aa 
a nwimmJn0«>contre and that people 
here seem to take naturally to the 
water and to the out-of-doors, but 
that In training facilities Vancouver 
is twenty years /behind tho times. 

If the city conetruota the proposed 
tank on international standardlxed 
lines he ban little doubt but that wlth- 
IB five years modern coaching and 
•winsmtiig taethoda will develop lodkl 
virimmers, both men and women, into 
Canadian national champions, and 
that Vancouver will come Into her

WINNIPEG, Dec, 10.— The thou- 
sands of loyal hockey fans through- 
out the length ai^ breadth of Can- 
ada are going to liave an opportun- 
ity this Winter of showing their ap- 
preciation of the work of one of the 
LQdieBt puckchasers that ever wore 
a pair of skates when a benefit game 
will' be played for the wife and chil- 
dren of the late Joe Hall, of Bran- 
don, Man. Clint Bennest, of Bran- 
don, who teamed with the western 
star for many years, when Joe was 
making history as an amateur, is re- 
sponsible for a movement which 
should prove very beneflclal to Mrs. 
Hall and her throe children now re- 
siding at Brandon. A committee 
formed in Winnipeg, of which W, J. 
FInlay is convenor, has been formed 
to promote a "Joe Hall" week 
(throughout Canada, and every hockey 
centre in the Dominion will be in- 
vited to take part in this most wor- 
thy cause. 

Popular With AU 
Joe Hall was beloved by both 
players and fans for his daring and 
clever performance on the lee and 
his untimely end lost Spring when 
he succumbed to the dreadful attack 
of Influenza while taking part In the 
Stanley cup games at the Coast, was 
Indeed a hard blow to hockey. Joe 
was one of the real veterans of the 
game, and those who watched him 
in action last Winter said that he 
was Just aa good if not better than 
when be was making fame in Win- 
nipeg some fifteen years ago. A trust 
company in Brandon has very kind- 
ly consented to handle the fundK. 
and It la expected that several thou- 
sand dollars will be realized through 
these games. 

Tho Manitoba Hockey Aasoclatloa 
has taken up the matter as far as 
Manitoba Is concerned, and plans are 
already under way for the staging of 
at least four games in the province. 
The week of January 12 has been 
fixed for the games throughout Can- 
ada, and hero in Winnipeg there will 
be a Hpeclal attraction In the way of 
a match between a te^m from each 
of the two senior leagues. The Vic- 
torias vrlll visit Brandon, while a 
senior team will be sent to Portage 
la Prairie. Selkirk will also sta^e a 
match between the home team and 
a senior outfit so that Manitoba 
should be well looked after.

TORONTO. Dec. 11. — An Interim 
report has been made by Hon. W. E. 
Raney. K.C.. to the commission of 
legislation of the Social Service 
Council of Canada on the racetrack 
Inquiry. ^ 

Mr. Raney makes the report In 
his capacity as counsel for the So- 
cial Service Commission at the In- 
vestigation. He has since resigned. 

Referring to the contentions of the 
Jockey Clubs, he says it is clear from 
the report of the auditors that many 
millions of dollars profiU have been 
made by the Jockey clubs of Ontario 
between 1910 and 1917, and that none 
of these has been diverted to the 
thoroughbred, but wept into the 
pockets of the shareholders. 

He cites George M. Hendry's Wind- 
sor Club figures of total takings of 
1163,975 in 1913, of which t«3,010 
was paid out in purses. In 1916 
takings of $445,833, of which 985,- 
800 was paid in purses. 

The OnUrlo Jockey Club in 1915- 
16 and 1917 paid $600,000 in divi- 
dends. The Windsor Jockey Club in 
1915-16-17. paid $640,000 in divi- 
dends. He also cites the great in- 
crease In value of stocks of these 

In the half-season of 1917 before 
the order-ln-councll. the Government 
audit showed that $12,557,351 passed 
through betting machines, from 
which the Jockey clubs took a rake- 
off of $1,161,543. 

Mr. Raiiey, In his summing up, 
says the figures prove the charges 
as to the mercenary character of 
the business 'carried on by Canadian 
betting houses calling themselves 
Jockey clubs, whatever bo their Im- 
portance as a factor in the horse- 
breeding industry.

An unusual inilclldent is attached 
to the Hay Robertaon gold medal 
belonging to the King James VT. 
Club, Monorclffe, Ireland, which was 
recently won by WUllam Caw with a 
score of 70. A few years ago the 
medal was stolen along with other 
articles from the house of one of the 
club's ofllcials. The thief was traced 
and convicted. When In prison he 
waa seen by a lawyer, who proved 
to Jke the very* otttcial whose houm 
had been broken into. The prisoner 
remarked that there was a golf 
medal among the things he had taken 
but aa he had no use for it he threw 
it Into the aea at Portobello. He waa 
obliging enough to make a sketch of 
that part of the beach where he con- 
elgaed the tropby to its watery grave.

seven week* later aa advertlaemept 
appeared to the effect that tho medal 
had been found, a tripper having 
picked n Qp an the shore. Althongh

Hawaii plans to bold a big interna- 
tional athletic meet next year. Such 
was the Information given to the offi-

asked the official backing of the union 
after which It passed a resolution

The Hawaiian delegate told the 
various representatives of the A. A. U. 
at the convention that the islanders 
planned to have this jptm-Paclflc meet 
every two or three years and thefe 
seems to be no reason why an athletic 
meet rivaling the best cannot be held. 

Swimming will play a big part In 
the meet and the world may expect a 
flood of new stars for theee are hun- 
dreds of youths and maidens In the 
islands who are today swimming in 
record time, but as yet have not been 

The meet. If held, can be staged any 
month of the year, for the weather 
Is ideal tho year round. Athletes can 
train there without trouble for every/ 
thing that Is attractive and necessary 
to the building of sport is there. 

The annual Fall swimming regatta, 
that has been held for the past several 
years, will then be merged with thls-

ffom China, Japan, the Philippines.

Charlie Clark, profesalonal ' boxer 
and native son of Victoria, Is looking 
for Iwuta here and Issue* a challenge 
to any boxer In Rrltlah Columbia 
iTord 146 to 16 J pounds for a l>out of 
1* round* or more. 

Clark has a considerable number of 
victorlee to his credit, most of • his 
boxing having b<'>r done in Alberta 
and Masaachuaetta in the yeara from 
1*11 to ISli 

The elk question is one that is 
causing the Unltad States Departn^nt 
of Agriculture no end of thought and 
considerable worry. It Is estimated 
that there are 70,000 elk in the United 
States at this time, but lack of proper 
Winter feeding grouiMls, due to en- 
croaching ranches and Illegal hunt- 
ing, decreases the number by thou- 
sands annually. 

For the past five years the Gov- 
ernment hns done its utmost to check 
this slaughter of elk, especially in the 
Yellowstone Park section, where in 
the neighborhood of 19,000 elk have 
been spending their Summers. These 
elk drift to the northern part of the 
park and toT nearby forests with the 
coming of printer. It Is while the 
elk is changing his home, seeking 
ginss and herbage that the slaughter 
takes place. We have read much 
about the elk dying by the thousands 
outside of Yellowstone Park, but a 
letter from Caiitain W. H. Richard 
the other day brought the thing right 

Arc Not Sportsmen 

Xo sportsmen are engaged in the 
slaughter. Those who hunt the elk 
"When he i9 seeking AVinter quarters 
are pot hunters; an individual that 
should be banished from every sport. 
Captain Richard is one of the great- 
est rifle shots in the world, the win- 
ner of the Leech Cup this year, and 
on two other occasions since 1900; 
the winner of the Nevada trophy at 
Uca Girt, and also a member of the 
small-bore team that represented 
America and defe.ited England this 
Summer. Therefore thi.s letter from 
Captain Richard is worthy of con- 
sideration, for he speaks from per- 
sonal observation. Here it is: 

"The heavy and almost unprece- 
dented early fall of snow at Yellow- 
stone Park has caused the elk to 
leave the park in large numbers. On 
the Livingston (Mont.) Pide alone It 
is estimated that 17,000 elk have 
come out, of which 2,000 have been 
killed by hunters , up to this time 
(November 14). 

"Livingston has been thronged with 
hunters of all ages aAd description, 
bound for the hills above the city, to 
Gardner, at the entrance to the park; 
and are hunting singly and in 
bunche.s. Reports tell of parties of 
hunters lying In wait behind rocks 
and brush and firing promiscuously 
Into bunches of elk containing all 
numbers up to as high as 200 in a 

The Excuse 

"The mnin excuse for the slaughter 
i.s that the elk will starve anyway 
before spring, and that they should 
be killed bofore the starving period. 
However, the bad feature of the situ- 
ation lies in the large number of ani- 
mals that sustain wounds and escape, 
only to die later unsecured by the 
hunters. Spoolal game wardens have 
been added to the territory over 
which the elk arc traveling to regu- 
late the slaughter as much as pos- 
sible, and the tales these game war- 
dens bring to Livingston arc both 
humorous and puthelir. 

"Sometimes parties of hunters open 
rapid fire upon a band of elk, or 
even a }<lngle elk as it crosses a 
ravine or glade and often these 
marksmen fill the air with f^lng 
l>ullct8 and bits of rock to the ex- 
tent thiit everybody di\eH for cover 
and the firing ceases us abruptly 
as it began and the hunters are loath 
to leave such protection as they have 
hurriedly found for fear of being 
mistaken for »n elk. Several fatali- 
ties have already occurred, but with 
no apparent effect on the numl>or of 
hunter.i arriving tl.Tily to aid in the 
slaughter. On November 13 there 
came down on the Gardner railway 
for shipment one hundred and seven- 
ty-five elk. This number does not 
include those brought out by wagons 
or pack. 

I'niqnc Expertonne 

"One chap had an experience 
rather unique and one which he will 
probably remember the remainder of 
his life, no matter how willing he 
will be to forget.. This Nimrod ar- 
rived with all the latest improved 
equipment, high power rifle, an auto- 
matic pistol, knife and hatchet. Being 
somewhat avers.-} to hill cllmblnir, he 
rented a saddle horse and rodn to 
the hills after his elk. Reaching a 
likely spot he tied up his steed and 
preceded qjp the gulch on foot. 
Crossing a ridge some distance up 
he scouted around for some time and 
at last located meat. Carefully stalk- 
ing the game he wormed his way 
into position and opened fire, sending 
five shots into what he thought was 
an elk. After the commotion in the 
brush subsided the hunter went drtwn 
to finish butchering, and much to his 
surprise he found, not an elk, but 
the remaVns of his tied-up hor<ie. 
The saddle was fairly well proser^i-ed, 
having but one bullet hole through 
it; ao he salvaged that and tramped 
back to Livingston, paid the dam- 
ages and departed without leaving 
his name or forwarding address," 


The committee of the Victoria 
Lawn Tennis Club in charge of the 
arrangementa for the dance sched- 
uled to take place on the ISth Inst, 
have decided to postpone the event 
until some time in .January. , The 
date has not t>een set. but will prob- 
ably be al»out the middi* of next 
month, and due notice will be given. 

There are several reaaotis for tha 
courao taken, one of the rbler of 
which Is the popular danee to be 
held at Duncan under the ikasplcaa 
of the Duncan Bachelnr'a Club, many 
of the members of whtch attend the

tal Recatias Arrangwl to Follow 

LONDON, Dec. 11. — In connection 
with the Olympic games whtch are 
to t>e held in Belgium next year 
there will be four days' yacht racing 
at Ostend. The dates are already 
nxed, July 11 to 14, Inclttslve. Bach 
nation will be invited to send one 
competitor for each claSS. and It Is 
hoped that races will be arranged 
for all classes adopted at the recant 
international conference, although it 
is unlikely that next year ^111 see 
any of the biggest class vessels built. 

Following on th^ Olympic races 
there is quite a long list of continen- 
tal regattas already arranged. 

The additional fixtures are July IB, 
Dover to Ostend: July 16, Ostend to 
Flushing: July 17, Flushing toHaUH- 
wert; July 18, Hauswert to Antwerp; 
July 19 to 20, Antwerp reg.tlta; July

Flushing to Ostend: July 23 and 24, 
Ostend regatta. 


looks Clean While it Lasts, 
But Soon Wears Off— Affi- 
davits as Easily Broken as 
Made, Apparently, 

The fact that the wholesale white- 
washing of professionals would be a 
Joko, if it were not as a matter of fact 
the worst knock ever administered to 
Canadian amateur sport, has been 
spoodily brought home f>y the an- 
nouncement that Keats, former eaat- 
exn professional hockey player, who 
had been enrolled as a member of 
Edmonton's amateur club In the Al- 
berta "Big F'our," has been coaJied 
back into the pro ranks by the St. 

In order to. get an amateur bard 
these reinstated pros have to, mak^s 
an afTIdavit that they intend to remain 
amateurs for the rest of their lives, 
and yet thi,%, particular reformed orte 
hafl rejoined the pros In less than a 
month from getting his amateur cird. 
Amateur sport is sport and profes- 
sional so-called sport is husinesR. A 
man who plays a game for the love 
of the game is a sportsman, a man 
who plays a game for the love of the 
almighty dollar is not a sportsman so 
far as thr/ game goes at any rate. 
He's In It for what's in it, and he's 
going to stay tn it until something 
turns up with more in it, or until his 
market value has vanished. When 
you .see a high-priced professional 
player turning amateur (?) again 
when In his prime. It is a pretty safe 
bet that there's more In it for him. 
although that so^iething more may 
not be set forth to the public gax«. 

There is more than one professional 
hockey player in the land who could. 
If he would, tell you of profitable 
days as a so-called amateur baok In 
the provinces where they seem to have 
a strong magnet Just now to attract 
stars of the professional game back 
Into camouflaged amateurism.

Fuel Administrator l^slgns 
Because He Disapproves 
Plan' Arranged for Settle- 
ment of Coal Str(k6. . . 

WABIIINGTON, Dec. 11. — Fuel Ad- 
ministrator Oarfleld's reslgnattftn Was 
tonight in the hands 6^ l^resident 
Wilson, given because he disagreed In 
principle with the coal strlMe "ioMtle- 
ment proi>08al arranged by the Oov- 
ernment ahd the Mine Workers' 

Dr. Garfield himself refused to- 
night to confirm, deni' or discuss the 
report, but at the White MAusc It 
was said that a personal letter from 
him had been trainsmitt'ed tot the 
President late this afternoon. 

Men close to the Kuel Adl^inls^ra- 
tor understand that he believe^ th^t 
the work of the commission kuthef- 
Ized under the settlement, to be made 
up of one coal mine operator,^ one 
coal miner and a third person named 
to represent the public, will reWtilt 
In an increased Prt<J"„ ot co«|l \o ^ the 
consuming public. To this form of 
settlement Dr. Garfield has been Un- 
alterably opposed^ It .|ias been 
learned on good authority t^»t . h<9 
took no part In th© negotlfcitlohs ^Ith 
the Mine Workers' union chiefs dur» 
ing the pant week, and that though 
informed and consulted after their 
Initiation, the termr laid out as 
finally accepted contravene iiis oon- 
cseptlon of the main principle iB> 

Coal mine operators authorised to 
represent practically the entire Indus^ 
try were still In Washington awaiting 
an official notification of the settla- 
ment basis. There was considerable 
doubt individually, and difference of 
opinion, but no meetings were held to 
formulate definite d^isions of policy, 
and none would be. it was said, until 
the government call came. All w<<'re' 
Interested in hearUw from borne os 
to the action of the miners' iooah 
upon the union order calling off the 
strike, but received little information. 

Only one minor change in coal- 
savtnt orders came today from the 
rull'vad administration, attowlnit retalt 
Atores to remain open nine Instead ot 
six hours on Saturday. The siS'hour 
schedule would be • -nialBtaiMd on 
■ ■- - ■. .fi .. ill. I . fii.i^y. 

other days. Well-informed officials' 
hold the opinion that mady of tbe- 
reetrlotlonH now ordered will have to 
remain effective until about January: 
20, even should the miners go back at ' 
once in <i^ body. 

The war finance corporation Ura* 
called today Into a discussion of' 
methods of financing mines whose 
product is not promptly paid for 
under existing systems of disUrihtltion. 
and which will pot be able to con- 
tinue operations without aid. Plans 
for granting relief were considered.

Function Held at Alexandra 

Not the vlightest rtsk was run while 
the "Are" scene was screened. In 
fact, it was flre'^roof. But what the 
beholder of the Nazimova production 
will see will be this: a birds-eye view 
of Pekln, stretching as far as the eye 
can vision; thousands of Chinese 
houses, with their red roofs and tall 
spires, gilded by the raging flames; 
clouds of jsmoke rising from the ruins 
of the legations and obscuring the 
'scurrying clouds. 

ROMANO She was a wealthy Paris- 
THEATRE Ian beauty and butterfly 
of fashion, to whose 
heart leisure and contentment wpre 
the dearest things In llfo, whose every 
whim was gratified, every vanity in- 
dulged In. He was a younfi American 
aristocrat, aimlessly drifting and 
Idling In the dolce fjir nlente of lan- 
guorous Southern Europe. 

These two met and loved— she rich, 
he almost penniless. 

Came the tjme when his hotter self 
pcevailed. and iie jkchI lotth to play 
a man's part In a world of men. And 
when the supreme sacriflce was called 
fbr she did not flinch from the conse- 
quences, but renounced wealth and 
luxury and all the material things of 
life in a supreme effort of self-abne- 
gation for the sake of the man she 
loved; thus, too, tlnding her better 
self. • 

That in brief is the story of "Oiir 
Better Selves." the Fannie Ward 
Extra Selected Star Photoplay which 
is showing at the Homanu today.

DOMINION Ward Crane, who plays 
THEATRE a leading role In the 
Cosmopolitan picturiaa- 
tlon of Robert W. Chambers' story 
"The Dark Star," featuring beautiful 
Marion Davles. which is showing at 
the Dominion, was once upon a time 
secretary to the late Colonel Theodore 
Roosevelt, and among his choicest 
treasures Mr. Crane preserves some 
autographed photographs presented 
to him, together with many souvenirs, 
by Colonel Roosevelt. 

It was when Colonel Roosevelt wa« 
Governor of New York that Mr. Crane 
served with him, and even after Mr. 
Crane left the services of the distin- 
guished statesman. Colonel Roosevelt 
frequently sent for hlril to take down 
some particular speech or^to read to 
him some passage from some volume, 
whose plot they had talked over dur- 
ing the laay Summer afternoons at 
Sagamore HIU. Colonel Roosevelt, 
Mr. Crane says, was greatly interested 
in pictures, and often wrote him com- 
ments on his work in them. 

PANTACES Mhe wave of frosty 
THEATRE weather is keeping many 
Victorians from seeing 
one of the most interesting entertain- 
ment features that has been shown in 
the city for many weeks. Maude 
Daniel, who has made a pronounced 
success developing the talents of 
promising youngatera. haa selected ten 
of the cleverest kiddies brought to- 
gether' for stage presentation, and 
presents them at the Rantages Theatre 
this week as the headline attraction. 
They are known for the purposes of 
stage presenUtlon as "The Rising 
Generation." They offer a auite of 
solo and choral sfftiga. dances, tableaux 
and character sketches by lltUe boys 
and girls from six to twelve years of 
age. No description of this offering 
may give an Idea of Its delightful ap- 
peal nor tho cleverness of the Juvenile 
actors. There are five other good 
acta to make this programme of vau- 
deville interesting, as the audiences of 
the wee k «have agree d it la '

"My three jrears of troubles have

Ique Sallaberry, a wall koowa shoe- 
maker employed by the P. Paris ahoc 
Rtare, of Hastings West, who lives ^t 
l74fl Fourth Avenue Waat. Vancouver,

"During tba past three ysars I 
baas been troubled With indlgaation

entirely," continued Mr. Sallaberry. 
"Evarjrthlng I ate disagreed wicb mo.

fight to get B(>y breath. I waa troubled 
with heartburn a great deal and X had 
nioh severe pains undor roy heart

I was so nervous that the luust little 
noise out of tbe ordinary nould upset 
jpe, and often I would have bursting 
headaches. I was so restleea and 
hardly able to sleep that I dreaded 
for night to come, and I lost a great 
deal of weight and felt so weak ^nd 
out «f sorts I was scaroely able to do 
my work. 

"I began taking Tanlac on the ad-

Wdll, he certainly put me on the right 
track, for after taking five bottles I 
am feeling as fine as a man could 
want t o feeL I h ave such a fine appe- 
tite that I can hardly get enough to 
eat, and It makes no difference what 
I eat I can digest it perfectly and 
never have a sign of indigestion. I 
am not troubled with belching, heart- 
burn or diasy spells, aad my breathing 
is free and normal. Headaches arc a 
thing of the past, and I am no longer

Dropping of Wind Yesterday 
. Afternoon Made Conditions 
Less Severe — ^^Moderation of 
CpJd Predicted- for Today. 

It will come as welcome news to 
Vletorlans that Mr. Napier Deninon, 
dlreetor of the meteorological obser- 
vatory, stated last night that there 
were Indications on the wtsather map 
that, although it was still very cold 
an over the province, the temperature 
would moderate during the next 24 
hours, and that the moderation would 
be general all over the Pacific slope. 

Teaterday.the* lowest temperature 
was recorded since the preaent cold 
spell descended on Victoria, the mini- 
mum registered at the observatory be- 
■ ing 16.6, with a maximum of 26. the 
rise in tha middle of the day being 
due to tba Influeaoe of bright sun- 
shine. Although the mean tempera- 
ture during the day waa not much 
lower than In the last few days, the 
dropping of the strong wind which 
baa been blowing steadily for the last 
jday or so and waa blowing at its 
bardest on Wednesday night, gave tbe 
fefllng af oonsiderably warmar 
weather, and conditions in the street 
were gsanh more pleasant. 

In Vancouver yesterday the mini- 
mum recorded was 13 degrees, in 
PriBce Rupert 14 and the same at 

Temperatures reported from the In- 
terldr were 1 below zero at Pentlcton, 
T ^low at ICAslo, 26 below at Cran- 
brook and 20 below at Kamloops. 

In AtUn and Dawson tsmperatures 
were moderating yesterday, both 
pUoaa raportlag 12 below as their

Big Liner Struck Maryland in 
Stormy Seas Off Cape Race 
— Is Expected at Halifax 
Today. , . . 

HALIFAX. Dec. 11.— A trajftdy of

hairbreadth last night when the Cun-

the Btorm-troublod. waters oft Cape 

Earl>' last e>iening stations along 
the coast picked tip the S.O.R. Kignal 
flashed by the <'.iirraanla. and the 
startling news at once revived mem- 
ories of th.'t IluUBrgvyne and Titanic 

i^ter the wireless supplied the In- 
formation that the Carmania and 
Maryland had been . in collision 500 
miles from Halifax. '. 

Fearing that his sh|p had been ser- 
iously daraaBed, OaptiXin Nelson <if vhe 
Carmania Immodiatek' sent out the 
distress call. JCxanwnatlon uf the 
dnmagc HUHtalped waa- made and hap- 
pily it waH found that the big liner 
was in no danger. She had lyen 
j«triick by the Marylard on the tftar- 
board side and the damage was all 
above tho waterline. The Carmania 
then Wirelesjiied that she waa not aer- 
lously damaged, did' not require as- 
sietunce and was proceeding to Hall- 

The Maryland also nppears to have 
«scaped without .serious damaKo and 
reported that she was continuing her 
voyage to I.iondon. 

The Carmania c.irrlOH a larjre num- 
ber of passepgers. Including Richard 
Croker. formerly of Now York, the 
faroouaTamm.'ny leader, and his wife; 
Lady Kathorinc Howard and Prof. 
Lloyd McFadden. 

The la«t report from her stated that 
she was "proc«*)ding ' all right," and

one year. In March,- l»l», the owner 
extended the lease uiftl! November 
30, 1919. The lease gave the lessee 
the right of a renewal for a further 
period of one year if she applied for 
it three months before the expiration 
of the term, at a rental to be fixed by 
mutual agreement, and In cose the

It was admitted tlmt the lessee had 
requested a renewal lease three 
months before the expiration of th« 
term, and the rental had been mu- 
tually agreed ufion by, that time, but 
counsel for the lessor contended that 
the lessee should have executed and 
tendered the renewal lease to the 
lessor for signature three months 
previous to the expiration of the 
term, which was not done until nearly 
the expiration of the terni, and that 
by rea!«on thereof the lessee had lost 
her right to the renewal lease. , 

Counsel for the' lessee contended 
thait it was only iri the event of an 
arbitration bring held to fix the rent 
that It wuK necessary for the lessee 
to execute and tender to the lessor- 
Judge Livmpnian dismissed the 
action, holding that the lessee had 
done all that she was required to do 
under the terms of the loose.

In connection with the agitatlori In 
England which has been going on for 
somo time past to allow of the erec- 
tion there of wooden houses in order 
to help solve the housing problem 
which has assumed such acute propor- 
tions in the Old Country, a well 
known Victorian, Mr. F. M. Rtitten- 
bury. the architect of the Parliament 
buildings hero, and with wide experi- 
ence in England and Canada, has 
taken a prominent pnrt. He stated 
that his experience has taught that a 
properly constructed wooden house Is 
the most healthy habitation. 

"Aly own opinion is that a wooden 
house is far healthier than any stone 
or brick house that could possibly be 
Greeted. To compare them with the 
cheaper forms dt brick bulkllng.s is 

"In a wooden house the walls are 
a continuous system of ventilating 
ducts, and iris almost impossible for 
any moisture to penetrat»> Inside the 
houHo or for any Kases to accumulate, 
iind In a climate very much wetter 
than the English climatp houses are 
as dry after being Hhut up for a time 
as they wore lieforc. 

"Other a«lvantage» of a wooden 
house are that they can be built 
much more quick l.v and can be altered 
or added to with much less expense." 
This is a question In which the 
whole of British Columbia is intl- 
matpfy concerned, ;ih the Coast lum- 
ber Is particularly suited for this class 
of building, and it is gratifying to 
learn that a first order has now been 
received by a Viincouver tlrm. 

"We have just received word from 
our London agents," said Mr. J. L. 
Northey. manager of the Twentieth 
Century House Company. Limited, to 
The Vancouver World recently, "that 
the health department of the London 
County Council, after making certain 
minor alterations, has approved of 
three designs for ready-made houses 
and recommended them to builders. 
We have also received our first order 
for over flO.OOO worth of houses, 
which will be set up at once on arri- 
val. A very large and old established 
London firm of timber brokers has 
become deeply Interested and has or- 
dered one of our largest and most 
complete ready-made houses, which 
it has made arrangements to set up 
In one of the most populous Isectlons 
of the metropolis. We have also re- 
ceived offers of almost unlimited 
flnanclal assistance from London in-

"To give an Idea of unparalleled 
demand for housing accommodation 
In England and on the continent it 
should only be necessary to point out 
that it would keep all the brick yards 
working at pre-war speed for over 
seven years to supply the present re- 
quirements. This situation, of, course, 
means that wooden houses must be 

"Tho trouble has been that there Is 
an Idea over there that the wooden 
house Is too fragile to last and that 
It dors not keep out the cold. Once 
these erroneous ideas are dissipated 
there will come such a demand that

Express Congratulations to Col. 
Prior on His Appointment — 
Speakers Tell of Rotary's 

The Rotary Chib, at its hineheo^ In 
the Empress Hotel yesterday, passed s^ 
resolution congratulatins Colonel the 
Hon. B. O. Prior on bis appoiotmeat 
as Lieutenant-Governor of British 

Chairman "Bob"*Wobb. of ths en- 
tertainment coauolttee, had a varied 
programme to offer. There was a new 
acquaintance "stunt" and brief 
speeches on the meaning of Rota,ry 
were given by Messrs. W. 8. Terry. 
Lester Patrick and George I. Warren. 

President J. f. Scott announced that 
there would be no meeting of the club 
'on Christmas Day, biit that there 
prpbably would be ladies' day en 
December 30 or 81. 

"J like to think of Rotary,'* aald 
Mr. Terry, "as a haalthy, robust boy"' 
with good red blood coursing through 
his veins, not yet at the xenltb of his 
strength, but rapidly forging to the 
front. RoVary Is but fourteen years 
old, having been bom in Chicago, la 
1906. But Its influence has spread 
throughout the Bnglish - speaking 
world. There are 600 Rotary Clubs in 
the world with a total membership dt 
fifty to sixty thousand persons. Ro- 
tary isn't a iiloee corporation. I want 
to disabuse the minds of the pubUo 
of any such false idea. It would be 
sorry to think that any member of this 
Rotary Club ^as not worthy of pat- 
ronage, but I would be equally sorry 
to think that the club held a mon- 
opoly On fair deallns and honesty in 
business. As a matter of fact, it doea 
not. I value membership in the Ro- 
tary Ctttb t>ecau8e it gives us an oppor- 
tunity of taking part in big move- 
ments, for the good of the community. 
There are other reasons, but that, in 
my mind, is the l>est." 

That Rotary's service is not con- 
fined to the creation of better business 
and professional pracUce for its 
members, was the claim of Mr. Lester 
Patrick. First of all, the organisation 
Blood for the betterment of the com- 
riunity and the country at largv. It 
provides the means for men to be- 
came better cltixens and Ifetter mem- 
bers of other organizations working 
for tho good of the city. It was not » 
political orgaalsation, yet it provldad 
a foruny where all sides of a oontro* 
versy wbuTd be given a fair hearing. 

A defence of the club's adherence to 
the pelipy of haViner one member and 
one member only repreeent each line 
of business or profession was voiced 
by Mr. George I. Warren. He said 
tliat this arrangement gave the indi- 
vidual member greater responsibility, 
because it gave him the privilege of- 
represenj^ing bis profession t Rotary 
and Rotary to his profession. The 
policy prevented unwieldiness. pre- 
vented domination by any one business 
or professioi), and made everyone a

Deputy Chief Palmer, Victoria, 
suggested the plan now in operation 
in England could be appropriately 
applied here. He pointed to the high 
standard of mental, physical and 
moral attributes required* from the 
police officers. Undbubtcdiy, he be- 
lieved, a satisfied police force was 
a most Important factor in the com- 
munity and especially so in the event 
of labor disturbances. 

Sergeant Mitchell, of tho Vancou-

The Anglican Young People's As- 
sociation has furnished its members 
with many -very delightful evenings 
since organising, but none that' have 
surpassed "An Evening with Shake- 
speare." which occupied the boards 
last night at the Cathedral school- ^ , 
room. Adhering strictly to Its pur- 
pose, tho committee drew up a pro- 
gramme which was varied and enter- 
taining, and which had the ad- 
ditional advantage of calling -aut some 
of the younger talent from among 
the members of the society itself. 
Seven sof the Christ Church Boys' 
nible Class, under the direction of 
Mr. W. «. Cockett, gave an excellent 
presentation of the court scene from 
"The Merchant of Venice." the elocu- 
tion and impersonation t>eing admir- 
able throughout. Particularly fine 
werei the readings of the parts of 
Shylock and Portia, given by Charles 
E. Christie and Alex. K. Campbell 
respectively, while hardly toss credit- 
able was the work of Donald J. 
Campbell as Oratiano, one of the 
friends of Antonio. Unlike the work 
of many young amateurs, there was 
no sacrificing ef words through over- 
rushing, and ths voices were sus- 
tained In tdhe so that everyone in the 
audience could easily hear the dia- 
logue. The costuming ef the parts 
was impeccable, and the scenery be- 
fitted the traditions of the pfay. Miis 
Cann. profeesor of literature at the 
High School, was warm In her con- 
gratulations of the young player^' 
when she addressed them after th«lr 

"The Patriotism of Bhakeapeare" 
was the subject of Itlsa Cann's In- 
teresting address, whieh waa one af 
the first items en the programme. 
The lecturer pointed out that while 
sometimes Shakespeare aaemed to pi|t 
into the mouth of kings farvest pa- 
triotic sentiment that would have 
befitted hlnntself rather than them, yst 
on the whole he sikowed ia word and 
trpirit an ardent iov« fl|f his ew^ 
cotintry. Shakespeare's patrlotle rsf«

of things first hand, until when they

.Money Is flowing free and fadt In 
Japan. Factories are busy, and hill- 
sides that were untilled when Mv. 
Carter was in Japan previously are 
now terraced and sown. E%'er>onc

Carter. The Japanese merihunts 
laugh at the Idea of a break with the 
United States, he says, and thoy claim 
thoy are making too much money to 


From Japan Mr. Carter went to 
Shanghai, which is growing rapidly. 
WcavinK mills that failed financially 
at Hongkong have been moved to the 
other Chinese city, where they have 
nourished, employing hundreds of 
Chinese girls. 

Mr. Carter states that people in 
Canada have no l«feu of the feeling 
which o.xlsta over the Shantung trou- 
ble. Chinese merchants have boy- 
cotted .Tapan<=-He Roods and even in 
cases where they httvo already bought 
and paid for mcrohandlao they have 
piled It In the streolf. and burned it. 
To 'protest agilnst the action of the 
Chinese Ciovernment in permitting 
Japan to cain control of the Shan- 
tung Peninsula the bu.sincss men of 
Shanghai closed their stores at Rroat 
monetary loss to themselves. MiKns 
were posted addressed to the foreign- 
ers, and stating that the Chinese were 
rhelr friends and wished them no 
harm, asking for their aid. 

Htu(lcnt«t Only Hope 
China's hope for the future Ilea In 
the student element. In Mr. Carters 
opinion. Pierades of students were 
neld m Shanghai in protest against 
the Shantung affair, and on one oc- 
casion the Sikh mounted guards were 
called out and charged the crowd. Mr. 
Carter had Just come out of his hotel, 
and was forced to run with the mob. 
lie was eventually trumpUd unfler- 
toot and received a couple of Injuries 
to tils leK. but Whether they were 
caused by the butt end of a lance or 
by someone In the crowd he does 
not know. Japanese dared not show 
themselves In Shanghai 
time, and numbers of 
badly beaten up. 

"China is an armed camp of ron- 
bers." claims Mr. Carter, who states 
that he has seen as many as 30 
pirate Hags at once on a vessel com- 
ing down the river. When a ship Is 
Stopped by. the pirates money is paid 
over and a fiag put up giving the 
craft safe passage until it reaches the 
zone of the next pirate, when more 
money must be paid and another 
nag received. 

From Shanghai Mr. Carter went 
on to Hongkong, where 108 new 
American firms have opened up dur- 

Canton, declares 

tlvcB as they should be treated, cer- 
tain Englishmen recently out from 
the United Kingdom, seemed to think 
it their right to kick the people 
around as they wished, giving the In- 
dians good grounds for complaint. 
Mr. Carter personally came across 
many examples of this unfair treat- 
ment. On one oecaslon h« was walk- 
ing along the street with a native 
when a British officer approached. 
Mr. Carter naturally did not move 
from the course he was taking, so the 
military man went between *ilm and 
the native, pushing the latter to one 
side. "You see." said the insulted 
one significantly to the visiting buyer. 
Such treatment as this is turning the 
people Of India the British 
and trouble has arisen. Mr. Carter 
saw at an Indian theatre a burlesqua 
which compared the refined ways of 
the rajah to the manners of some of 
the Kngllshmen. much to the dis- 
advantage of the latter. The Vic- 
torian wondered that the authorities 
should allow a play of this sort. He 
was asaurpd that this represented tho 
limit to which they might go. 

Vvmn Indian merchants Mr. Carter 
heard some, of the fomplaints against 
the British regime which placed "n 
excise tax on certain products hut 
no Import levy, with the result that 
the domestic, production was killed. 

r.oing Into Lahore the buyer found 
the town still smoulderins f'on' «he bombs which fell from the 
air in retribution for the outrages 
of mobs which looted and killed. 

From Lahore his travels led him

Ing the past year. 

the curio collector. Is growing In 
wonderful style, and a wide avenue 
is being made down the middle of tho 
city making U possible for a stranger 
to go about without getting lost, a 
teat at present Impossible with the 
narrow, crooked streets. In Canton 
there are two big Chinese department 
stores which would. In Mr. Carter's 
opinion, compare favorably with any- 
thing found In Canada. 

Slngnpore «rowlng 
"At Singapore I found the changes 
marvelous and the growth tremen- 
dous." went on Mr. Carter. There, 
too. is found the Japanese colony ex- 
tending for many, many blocks. Tho 
money used In the colony Is Japanese. 
"Singapore is" the fastest town In the 
Far East." says the Victorian. The 
hotel manager told him Xhat It was 
considered a slow nlgtit when several 
hundred bottles of champagne were 

not opened. ^ , . .. 

Colombo has not gone ahead fast, 
but between 7 and 10 in the even- 
ing la one of the most wonderful 
spots 6n earth, according to Mr. Car- 
ter. The surf rolling up in the 
twilight upon a beach many miles in 
length, and with the palm trees and 
the humming of locusts the effect is 
very striking- 

From Ceylon the traveler sailed to 
Bombay with Its Indian architecture 
and Its cosmopolitan populaUon of 
peoples from the country lying back 
from the ancient port who come there 
with ware* and go their ways home 


Mr. Carter found considerable un- 
rest amoog the natives of India. Mrs. 
Annie Besant. the noted agitator. W«» 
In the Old Country at the time of 
the Victorian's visit, boosting for 
Home Rule In India. 

.Ill TrratmoDt 
ytt. carter fo«nd that while the 

ate of an English college, will sec 
that Kashmir goes ahead. Bullock 
trains, oftentimes half a mile In 
length, wind up from the Vale of 
Kashmir to the railhead at Rawl 
i'lndl with apples for the outside. 
Wonders of .\Hthnrlly 
The British exercise a control over 
Kashmir. A British resident car- 
ries the authority of an Empire, and 
the nearest soldier is two hundred 
miles away. Which leads un to 
what Mr. Carter speaks of as one 
of the wonders of his thousands of 
miles of travel. »Ie has found that 
at any spot In the Far East where 
Britain exercises control, be it in the 
hills of India or the British settle- 
ment at Shanghai, he has found fair 
atment and ample protection. It 
seems Strang* to thinK of one man 
exorclsins the authority of his coun- 
try with no support of any kind 
within several hundred miles and no 
railroad connection. The British have 
not Interfered with the non-develop- 
ment policy at Kashmir. 

Through various Indian towns Mr. 
Carter returned to Bombay. and 
then returned to Victoria via China 
and Japan, arriving here, as stated, 
on the Empress of Japan. 

Mr. Carter speaks only the Eng- 
lish language, although he knows a 
word or so and cajj figure In sevemi 
Far Eastern tongues. His business 
dealings are carried on through an 
Interpreter in the different places he 
visits, but in India particularly he 
found Enprlish spoken freely among 
the natives. 

lluw lie Buys 
"The merchants of each country re- 
quire different methods of handling," 
said Mr. Carter, when questioned as 
to his buying methods. "You must 
first be sure of yourself, and instead 
of asking how much, you first of all 
sot your own price. You must find 
the other man's mental plane. You 
.Titust work around until you find 
whether his "So help me. Ood" means 
anything. He will try his beat to 
skin you. for he would rather do 
that than be given a large sum of 
money. It is his business, and life- 
long dickering with his fellow coun- 
trj'men and other Orientals bent on 
Bklnnlnic him has made his as keen 
as a razor. As I say, he will try his 
best to skin you. but once the deal 
is closed It is closed. During the 
bargaining even a Far Easterner's 
oath Is not to be believed, but when 
the sale is made he la as much, and 
often* more, to be trusted than a 
white man. I pay cash for my mer- 
chandise In the hills of IndJa and 

From Old Country Going on

gers Getting on Here. 

Owing to the fact that a large 
nurhber of British ofTlcora are re- 
turning to the Orient on the Suma 
Maru after seeing service In Europe, 
practically naif of the saloon pas- 
sengers on tho liner will board her 
at this port. It Is not often th.-it a 
British military party travels on the 
Japanese Kteamcrs. and also it Is a 
lang time since such a large nuitibor

MOXTUBAL. Dec. 11. — Of a fleet 
of 260 vessels built on the Great 
Lakes for the United Statea Shipping 
Board, which were scheduled to 
come down tho St. Lawrence during 
the navigation season of lOIH, 234 
have come down, as well as 4« tugs. 
How far this shipping has contributed 
to the relief of the tonnage ghorUge 
may be Men in the fact that ten 
shipli sailed from here wltlw cjtrgoes 
for the United Kingdom, teir for the 
Mediterranean, and tho balance took 
coastwise cargoes. Altogether about 
100,000 tons was carried In United 
States ships overseas, of which ap- 
proximately «I5.000 tons went to the 
United Kingdom and 3B,000 tons to 
the Mediterranean, in coming down 
from the Qreai Lakes these vessels 
aMo carried about 70.000 torig of coal 
to Montreal.

Dlgbt, I do not claip to be a speaker 
but I do claim to have a good work-

Hie Taxatiou Impasse 

Sir — The Premier has gone into 
print, and. like the little boy at school 
when the master took him to task for 
being naughty, he iOtys: "PleaA, sir, 
It wasn't me; it was that bad boy 
Bobby and the other fellows." That 
fifteen per cent penalty Is a fatherless 
outcast with a vengeance. No one will 
own It, and there is tio politician so 
poor or obscure as to do it reverence. 
It looked splendid in print as a further 
scourge for the already broken and 
scarred back of the taxpayer, but the 
municipal solons thought the unfor- 
tunate galley slave, chafned to the 
benches of extravagant and Incompe- 
tent government, would not dare to 

If the pelltlclens, municipal and 
provincial, had the least power of ob- 
servation, they would see that the 
breaking point has been reached, and 
the uprisMig against them is about to 
burst. They had better turn what in- 
telligence they have now to devising 
means of lightening the bur- 
den, and .at the same time face 
bur outside creditors with the ugly 
truth that we are unable to pay our 
way. Mr. Hart says there is to be no 
increase of the income tax. That Is 
refreshing. He promises more taxa- 
tion of motor cars. That's surely 
statesmanlike. The whole trouble 
with these chaps ts they cannot vie' 
any public matter except as to how 
much "revenue" It will bring. The 
Brewster Government came Into 
power and found an empty treasury, 
a top-heavy adniinlstration and huge 
obligations to meet. The remedy 
sought was tax and super-tax. The 
administration was also made still 
more top-heavy. "The old McBride 
Government came Into power pre- 
viously and found not merely an 
'%mpty treasury, but a sulky, sullen 
bank which refused further credit. 
Captain Tatlow took held of alTalra, 
conducted them with marked ability 
and economy, with thn result that in 
two years he reduced taxation ar^ 
eventually left- oflloe with some mil- 
lions of dollars In the treasury. We 
ane sadly in need of a Captain Tatlow 

Without throwing any bouquets at 
myself, you will remember I prophe- 
sied no relief from these men, either 
municipal, or provincial. It is a wild 
squeeze to see if there is another drop 
or two of Juice in the lemon called 
the public. It is simple jrot talking of 
land being over-taxed. What does it 
matter how the people are taxed If 
they cannot pay. If they had the 
money, what difference does it make 
whether you get it from them by tax- 
ing their homes or their Tom cats? 
The people have been bled white, and 
the time to halt has come. Let the 
men paid to transact public business 
stay at their work benches and do an 
honest day's work every day in the 
week. Let us have some scheme of 
relief, not more burdens. If the pres- 
est ofllce holders are not equal to the 
Job. flre them as any other incompe- 
tent servant, and hire one or two who 
will be equal. 

Tou suggest a local government 
boasd, and The Times' suggests a fair 
rent commission. For the love 
of Pete don't suggest any fur- 
ther schemes to' these men. We 
have as many commissions and boards 
now as a rancherle pup has fleas. 
Don't you now an election has been 
set for May or June/ and there are 
whole platoons of political followers 
yet to be provided for? Have a 
heart. Now, as to this fatherless, 
motherless fifteen per cent penalty. It 
is not a question of asking anyone's 
consent to It; repeal. It must go. 
That's all there is about it, and It 
must be considered as never having 
been born. Also a^ptfedge should be 
exacted from the persons who want 
to pose as aldermanlc statesmen in 
Victoria, that this city will not be 
identified with that backstairs institu- 
tion known as the Union of Munici- 
palities. The very name has a sinis- 
ter appearance. I will have more to 
say about It later on.

Sir, — It is rather amusing to read 
the letters which some of our anti- 
prohibition friends write to the news- 
papers .at Intervals. Apparently, In 
the opinion of these broad-minded 
gentlemen, jill those of us who be- 
lieve In prohibition and who voted 
for It are a narrow-sou led lot of 
despicable creatures who Just delight 
in dictating to others what they shall 
eat, what they shall drink, where- 
withal they shall be clothed, and all 
the rest of it. 

If there were any truth or sense m 
these rash assertions, how can we 
account for the fact that with the 
spread of education and cuMure 
among the people the prohibition 
sentiment also spreads and becomes 
stronger? In the republic to the 
south of us there are over 100,000,000 
people, as well educated, as progres- 
sive and as liberty-loving as are the 
people of any other coutnry on earth. 
Tet these people have Just recently 
written prohibition Into the constitu- 
tions of every sUte In the Union ex- 
cept three; and It Is rather amusing 
that one of the three was the state 
that won everlasting distinction by 
manu^turlns and eelUng wooden 

As one who voted for prohibition, 
I want to plead not guilty to the rash 
and foolish indictment of the anti- 
prohlblUenists. it is they, and not 
I, who are narrow-minded, and who 
wish to interfere with the liberty of 

When I go loto a poUlng booth and 
an hanSed a ballot miave a right 
to mark that ballot according to the 
aietatee of my Conscience. If I did 
net to do so I would not be acting the 
part of a good dttsen. If that ballot 
Is for or against prohibition I have 
as much right to mark my cross for 
prohibition as my neighbor has to 
mark his the other way. But because 
he differs from me I do not regard 
him as narrow-minded, or abuse 
him like a BilUngs«ata nshwlfe. be- 
caoee he exerclsee him right In a 
different way. If I did, I would be 

flona l l iberty aiid flglUH m fiatiuw 
and ehlldisli as some of our antl- 
prohibitlootst friends. 

Society has aa much right to with- 
hold liquor licences as it has to grant 
them. The right to grant them car- 
rlee with it the Hght to withhold 
them. It Is simply a question of the 
will of the majority. 

Bat this law has been abused, we 
are told; it hae been brasenly vio- 
lated by doctors and others. This 
may he true. It may t>e true that 
bootlegging and blind-plKging is too 
prevalent, ihat some doctors have 
prostituted a noble profession. That, 
however. Is no reason why we should 
change the law to meet the wishes of 
these law-breakers. Because some 
men steal we do not legalize theft. 
Because some people run brothels 
and gambling Joints we do not change 
tt\e criminal code so as to suit the 
conveniencs or greed of these law- 
breakers. We entree the law against 
them. This law has not been prop- 
erly enforced. That, however, is not 
the fault of the law, but of those 
whose duty It Is to enforce It. No 
human law was ever known to en- 
force Itself. It' oannot be said that 
a law is a failure until an honest at- 
tempt has been made to enforoe it, 
which has not yet been done. 

I believe that a majority of the 
Canadian people are opposed to 
booze in every form, and that, nOw 
that the women have the franchise, 
this will be clearly demonstrated 
whenever a vote is taken. In the 
meantime those of our esteemed fel- 
low citizens who have not^ yet caugbt 
the Canadian spirit, may comfort 
their troubled souls by continuing to 
write letters to the press full of fiery 
diatribes against prohibitionists, or 
full of ever so many points and argu- 
ments, real or imaginary, against 
prohibition. That kind of thing. I 
presume, pleases them, and it does 
not hurt anyonb else. 

Possibly in the <!oming years the 
children of these esteemed fellow- 
citizens may be better Canadians 
than they otherwise might be. 
through- the present dethronement ot 
King Alcohol.

uhauUt WiUor Supply 

Sir. — We note >lhrough the daily 
papers that Mr. H. F. Bourne (Es- 
quimau Municipal Engineer), has re- 
ported against purchasing a flre 
pump f<?r the municipality on the 
grounds- that the water mains are 
small and the water pressure low. 

If these conditions did exist they 
would be reasons for the purchasing 
the pump, but we can prove to any 
capable hydraulic engineer that such 
conditions do not exist, and, in . fact, 
the conditions are better than in the 
City of Londof . England, where fire 
pumps are used. Our pressure is 117 
pounds at sea level and all hydrants 
are supplied from pipes ranging from 
29 inches diameter to 4 inches di- 
ameter. 1 

Out of 30 hydrants in the munici- 
pality only.jibout 6 are on dead ends 
and, of course, these dead ends will 
disappear as the municipality grows. 
We invite Mr. Bobrne to bring in any 
capable hydraulic r-nglneer to meet 
purs, who will show him over the 
system In order that the public may 
get correct information. 

Let uj have more light, let us hear 
the r^ar reason for not buying that

On Sunday sixteen meml>ers were 
admitted to the memt>ership of the 
church. The Rev. J. L. Hatty 
preached both morning and evening, 
the attendance being as large as ever. 
In the morning the subject was "The 
immeasurablenesB of God and the 
Soul." from Job xxxviil. 23, and Ix. 21. 

Thos. Carlyle said: "The book of 
Job Is the greatest religious poom 
ever penned/' It is an autobiography 
of the soul and should command our 
respect Job was pio^ured sitting at 
night by the fire thinking of the mys- 
teries of divine providence and talk- 
ing to himself. "Touching the Al- 
mighty we cannot And him out." And 
"Though I were perfect yet would I 
not know my soul." Job took life Ber- 
iously. He was not one of the butter- 
fly sort who think only of worldly 

Think of God In relation to time. 
We talk of hours, and days, and years, 
but who can grasp the milleniums of 
bygone ages? 

Think of space. We can measure the 
church and tell how many cubic feet 
there are within its walls, but who 
c»in measure space. Think of the 
stars. What we see is but. the 
threshold of what is beyond. Think 
of their number. Only Ho who creat- 
ed them knoweth their number and 
their names. 

Speaking of the universe, Mr. Batty 
told that he had visited a beautiful 
home in England containing three 
hundred rooms, a wonderful home, 
and he compared it to the works of 
God. Look at the picture presented 
by a beautiful sunset, or take a walk 
on this beautiful Island and look 
around you. God has given uti this 
beautiful world to live in. How can 
the infidel sneer, and the agnostic 
doubt when there are so many evi- 
dences of divine wisdom and power? 
They have not made a star, nor could 
they make a flower. How can we 
question whether God Is a loving 
father? He is rich in resources. This 
world is only the court. Heaven ts 
the throne. This is the beginning:, 
that is the fruition. Truly the Al- 
mighty is past Unding out^

Think 9f the soul, the immeasur- 
able in 'itian. Reason is the golden 
vessel that should never be removed 
from the sanctuary. There are such 
things as wings.^ Faith conies to our 
assistance and there is a time in our 
lives when we must rely on faith. 
Some say show me such &nd such 
things and I will believe, but we can 
only go so far. Jesus said, "Let n*t 
your heart be troubled, ye believe in 
God believe also in Me." Philip naid, 
"Show us the Father," but Jesus said, 
"He that hath seen Me hath seen the 

Love follows faith. Love can dis- 
sipate solitude, create companionship, 
magnify trust, and bring completeness 
into life as nothing else can do. Qod's 
love is immeasurable. "For God so 
loved the world as' to givW* His only 
Son." If we think of Calvary and the 
cross we get some idea of the love 
of God. Think of the relationship of 
God to the soul of man. and if we 
cannot find out all we wish we have 
enough to satisfy us. 

The evening subject was "Christ or 
Barabbas." "Now Barabbas was a 
robber," John 18, 40. We are not 
saved by what we believe merely, but 
what we choose. If we do not choose 
right our belief will be of no avail. 
Which Is it to be, Christ or Barabbas? 
This is a question for all time. We 
are all facing this choice. Mother 
Eve said in effect, "Not this man but 
Barabbas.".. In the day of Judgment 
no one will be able to say "I have not 
had a chance. Jesus does not force 
me to be good. People who stay out- 
side the church lose more than the 
church doea They who despise it 
are choosing Barabbas. We are in 
the box and Christ In tl}e dock. 
What is our evidence? Is it to be 
Christ or Barabbas? The Britisher 
believes in fair play, the Bible teaches 
it. Barabbas had a fair chance and 
80 have we. 

The public houses in England have 
signs over the door with the name of 
the house on. One day a boy went In 
and said "your sign* has tumbled 
down," and a man went out to And 
one of his patrons lying in the gutter. 
The man who sells rum has chosen 
Barabbas. The agnostic and the infi- 
del have had their chance, and they 
had better never have been born than 
to undermine the beUef of men. Un- 
hellef has had Itir chance. Is it not
