Bank deposits right here in Canada show an increase of $12,163,419 in savings accounts on April this year, 1 as compared with April last year. Tf Mm Of course, this hoarding of money is very unwise, for it automatically stops the wheels of progress and re- tards the recovery of conditions in general. The way to stimulate business and effect a revival in every direction is to spend money wisely. And surely there never was a better time than right now at BurdeY: low point sale. Prices of merchandise are lower today than they have been in years.

Since purchasing the Island a few weeks ago. the Canadian Pacific has expended 50,000 on erection of a wharf, pavilion, covered tables to accommodate 600 persons, bath-houses, and other Improvements. This la but the start of an active development programme, officials explain, and It Is likely that next year a large recreation ground and summer cottages will be arranged for. The picnic area Is served by Nanaimo electric light and water facilities. Newcastle Island lends Itself readily to development as a pleasure resort.

It has a fine view of the Gulf of Georgia on the west side, and on the east fronts on Nanaimo harbor. The Island Is one and a half miles long and contains 764 acres In virgin forest, and pleasant stretches of meadow land. It has several beautiful beaches and many pleasant trails. Deer frequent the Island, and It Is the Intention of the Canadian Pacific to turn the Brea Into a game sanctuary. Launches give quick connection to Nanaimo city, a mile across the harbor.

Citizens of Nanaimo are taking a great Interest In the plans of the company. For years It has been one of Nanalmo's ambitions to have Its district recognized as a desirable summer resort. Some twenty-three years ago articles In the Nanaimo Free Press urged the Canadian Paclflo to establish a summer resort either In the city or on Newcastle Island.

Vatkln. who Is well educated and known locally as an astute Russian with a wife and family, Insisted on telling the census enumerator before Police Inspector Forbes Crulckshunks that he was two thousand years old, that he was born on earth and did not know where. He said he did not have a wife and then when he was cornered said that the woman who was his wife Is now his sister and that lie had no children. Four of the more obstreperous Douk-hobors had been arrested after two hours' work by the police In the afternoon. They were decoyed away from the rest of the crowd and then caught.

Fifteen police were on hand and the rest of the Doukhobors were broken off Into small groups and order was thus maintained. Women, however, endeavored to molest the police. Some of the constables were struck over the head and a smock was thrown over Inspector Chulckshanks. There is no hope of securing census Information from the men arrested. The police are to locale Paul Mettn Bnd Larlon Cherenoff, for whom they have warrants.

The main colony is still being barred from the town with quotas of police guarding all the approaches. DEMONSTRATION MNDAY. No further warrants will be issued and the question being asked is whether the government will be able to take a census of the colony. T'he enumerator has really achieved nothing and there are tears that the town will have a demonstration Sunday unless the police can get the prisoners away tonight. Lottery Charges Laid.

In raids conducted by Detective George McLaughlin Saturday afternoon, Lee Sing, 113 Market Alley; Llm Sam, 61 West Cordova; Hlng, 10 Powell street and Stephen Sweeney, 461 East Hastings, were arrested and charged with operating lottery houses. They were released on ball of $100 each. "I don't care what you do to my father and mother or sisters. Hang them If you like," was the statement of Mike W. Lossoff to Enumerator E.
