DECEMBER 26. 1010 Japan Objects to Pacific "Mandates" JATA.V.s objections to the mandates to be granted Australia and New Zealand in respect of the former Pacific colonies of Germany lias an interest for Canada. The future of the Pacific is intimately bound up with the future of the. western half of this I'ominion. AVhy Japan objects is not stated in detail but in general she claims that under Australian control her trade opportunities will be fewer than when the Pacific islands were tinder the German flag as before the war. Also It is understood that the right of admission of Japanese subjects is a ground of protest. Australia and New Zealand are not likely to 'give way on either of these points. It is part of I their settled policy to exclude orientals from Australasia and in the past this policy has raised no small difficulties in other parts of the Kmpire. If the issuo is pressed It is conceivablo that both Australia and New Zealand will give up their mandates rather than abandon their policy. Possibilities of compromise do not appear bright. Wooden House "Snobbishness" T HE battle for the wooden house in Great 13rlt - ain is not yet won. The Agent - General for British Columbia continues to bombard the newspapers, and Lord Northcliffe's Daily Wail has let loose some heavy artillery, but without great result so far. ome wooden houses, however, are being built in England. One British writer, criticising the government department responsible for the failure to adopt wood as a building material, gives a humorous explanation. He says it is duo to a certain form of "snobbishness." "There seems to be," he writes, "something derogatory from human dignity in wood as a building material. Rabbit hutches ure made of wood and man ineonsequently demands that his august head shall bo sheltered from the wind and rain by a substance heavier and more solid than that which suffices for the humble coney. Brick and stone seem to have about them a solemn air as of eternity. The snob that lurks in most of us takes a kind of pride In reflecting that his house is made of the same material as that of which churches and town halls, the temples of worship and justice, are fashioned." It is an interesting theory this, throwing not a little light on our British mentality. At first sight it Is not obvious that the home - staying Briton's objection to wooden houses at a time when he is almost ruined by high rents is based on the same psychological trait as that which created his empire. But such would seem to bo the case. The Briton must have that which endures. o he builds his house and his empire with the same basic idea, namely, that they should both last for ever. Women as Farmers in B. C. LAST spring and summer delegates from the Overseas Settlement Committee appointed by the British Government to investigate openings overseas for women from the Motherland, visited Canada and examined into conditions here. The delegates primarily sought information as to the prospects of women in agriculture, but they also looked into the industrial and commercial openings. I Their report has now been presented to Parliament. It deaU amongst other matters with the causes of the failure of women in agriculture hitherto, the dangers and difficulties to be encountered, the best areas of country in which to settle and the financial returns to be expected. It is interesting to note that the southern districts of British Columbia are declared by the delegates to offer greater facilities and attractions to British women agriculturists than are to be found in any other Canadian province. Mixed farming and fruit - growing can be successfully carried on, it is pointed out, and these are the classes of agricultural work best suited to women. The Fraser Valley, in particular, is commended for dairying and soft - fruit cultivation. The Kootenay Lake district is spoken favorably of and the southern section of Vancouver Island is also praised. No illusions, however, are fostered as to the ease with which women can make fortunes In British Columbia farming. The risks and disadvantages as well as the prospects are impartially - set forth. And would - bo "farmeresses" are plainly told what they must expect to encounter in taking up land in this province or elsewhere In the Dominion. Retailers Are Not Profiteers THE Board of Commerce has already justified its existence. While it may not iave accomplished all that people with no notion of economics in their heads expected of it, nevertheless It has exorcised a deterrent influence on would - be profiteers and undoubtedly has kept down prices which were unjustified even on the basis of the present abnormal demand for commodities. The board's investigations have covered a wide field. An attempt has been made to collect the fullest data on manufacturing and production costs throughout Canada and on the basis of these figures to arrive at something like maximum rrices. It is interesting to note that while the Board says nothing of manufacturers it finds amongst retailers generally "a wholesome desire to avoid even the appearance of overcharging." Ontario's Wealth in Waterpowers WHAT water - power may mean to British Columbia when it has been developed as it should be muy be gathered from what water - power has already meant to Ontario as outlined by Sir Adum Beck. To a public gathering the father of hydroelectric expansion in that province disclosed recently that the scheme began with a modest total uf 76,000 horse - power, but that today it hud expanded to 36G,00tt honse - power and that plans were proceeding for a scheme involving 600,000 horse - power. Those who remember that when the Hydro - Electric Commission started operations the prediction was confidently made that It would "bankrupt the province," will bo interested to learn that the original investment of $3,500,000 has now grown to $100,000,000 and that tho bonds of tho corporation are amongst the best on the market. At present development at Niagara is on such a basis that in tho future electricity will displace in use fifty million tons of coal. What this may mean in the event of a coal strike such as the United States has just passed through can be easily seen. And what it may mean to Industry in Ontario in the future is equally obvious. In Sir Adam Beck's view the steel industry of the world will at no aistant time be situated in bia province. If water - power should bring such The Third Sex IN the absence of any announcement as to place and date of publication und even of the firm which pot out the neat booklet bearing tho above title, tho casual reader i left to infer from its general and most amusing contents and his own local knowledge, that it is a Vancouver publication mid that the author is none other than the rector of yt. Paul's Church. Kcv. Jl. C. King has collected in the sixty or seventy pages of the little work a number of those stories that are usually heard only when two or three brethren of the cloth are gathered together in some snug study late in the evening lor a half - hour's i hat and not Impossibly a well - earned pipe, a luxury which it may well have been impossible to Indulge in earlier in tho day. The booklet is a feast of good things, heard. some of them, others actually experienced, in the course of more than a score of years petit in the ministry, tho lighter harvest of long und hard service, p.u t of which was given in Kastern Canada and part in this city. Space will not permit manv quotations nor would It bo quite fair to the author to make them. The following, however, which forms part of a tribute to tt.o zeal of parsons' wives in general In looking after tho comfort and welfare of their husbands, ceems to have a local flavor: "It. is on record that one parson's wife, whose husband was about to officiate at a funeral in inclement weather, while he was siiffcrimr nt the .same time from a bad cold, said to him: 'Now. John. I want you to promise me one thing, and that is, that when you pet out to that cold, bler.k cemetery, you will not stand with your bare head on the damp ground.' John promised.'' Quite appropriately the book begins with a "general confession," which is really an account of what the author calls a hilarious tourney of I'.IOO miles during which part of the content's of the book was V'iven at town after town in the form of a lecture, Mr. King obtaining additional material as he went alone. .t nne place ho snvn a man in Ihe audience, npparentlv wishing to be' very complimentary, suggested that he send his I lectin e to some big periodical.

"Faith Is a path In the Garden of Life, beset hv doubts and fears; but the beautiful flowers that miioiii oy uie way cast a fragrance that comforts und cheers." "Charity is the sweetest fruit to be found In Life's Garden. Let not then the blighting winds of unkindness enter there, but waler it from the fountain of Life, that there may be a bounteous harvest." These are two pretty passages I cull from the charming booklet, which is a credit to the printers' art and to Vancouver. I attended a sale the other day and saw some old silver and "plate" sold. Heavy plate which had once been on a ship of the royal navy went for ridiculously low prices. There was nono so old as the "William and Mary" plate, much sought by collectors; but, nevertheless, I congratulate the buyer. Years ago the practice of "clipping" coin of the realm to put into silver plate was quite common. It was all very well for a rogue to "pinch" a bit off a silver coin, but there was no fun In melting down a crown or a shilling because as "silver" the metal was worth less than the face value of the coin. It Is different now. A shilling, as metal, Is worth more than a shilling us com, and silver is being hoarded in British lands as well as in the Orient. English silver plate has always, or nearly aways, been equal In value to silver coinage. The standard of silver plate has been tinder stalo control, and there have been offices at London, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dublin, Sheffield, Birmingham and Chester, where the plate has been tested and stamped. The standard in plate has been in force for 400 years and is a proud record for the silversmiths. The coin of the realm Is 925 parts silver in every 1000 parts. From the year 1697 to the year 1720 the standard was 959 parts of silver in every thou sand parts. That is one of the reasons why those "in the know value oki silver; ami, ot course, the exquisite design gives added value but that's another story. i F.P.

A1 PART from the clamorous company of sea - ducks, yet sharing their feeding - grounds above the reef, the loon keeps solitary stato and drifts close inshore in the grey of dawn. A hand some bird of the waters is the common loon and the largest of the great family of northern divers. As he rides and poises briefly on the crest of each landward - rolling wave of the lazy groundswell, his bead ot velvety black gleams iridescent in the level beams of a wintry sunrise, white slashes on throat and neck, checkers of black und white on wings and back may be clcurly seen and the broad breast down shows snow - white against the murky seas. For the skin of that breast, with its down of compact pile and wondrous softness, the life of the loon is often sought, but br.tween pull of trigger and fall of hammer he dives, not to be seen again except as a speck on the distant water, far out of range. Ducks are keen and wary birds; somo instinct more subtle than vision or hearing gives them warning of danger, and the hunter, well - screened as he may bo In the outer fringe of the woods, sees the flock move seaward by some common impulse. Panic, follows these sudden retreats, as though the very thoughts of tho hunter had power to alarm. A few birds nearest the shore will rise, then more, then the whole company, covering acres of water, will take flight together in a hail - storm of spray from wings hard - driven In the first rapid strokes. And the goat northern diver or loon has this guardian instinct in high degree. Under the old landing - stage we have remained concealed while dawn spread over the gulf, peering through a chink of the water - worn logs, as the loon drifted slowly closer to the surf. But while the eye delights in the gleaming plumage of his lifted head, some mysterious sense gives wanting of possible danger, and of a sudden only the running swells remain. mm WHAT TROTSKY'S CO I SIX THINKS OF 1I1M. III. ABRAHAM ZHIVOTOVSKI, a cousin of ' 1V1 Trotsky, has been living quietly in London 1 for some months past. It was at first stated that Mr. Zhivotovski is Trotsky's uncle, but this he vig - orously denied In explosive Russian. "I am Trotsky's cousin," ho said, with a look that betokened the relationship was much too close for his liking. ' A short, thick - set man, with neatly trimmed beard and moustache, Mr. Zhivotovski speaks no Kng - s lish. but his wife acts as a ready interpreter. I Mr. Zhivotovski said he left Russia some months ' before the Bolshevik outbreak, and had not seen ; Trotsky "for a long time." He had no sympathy with the Bolsheviks. It is known that he has given great help to the anti - Bolshevist General Denekin. Mr. Zhivotovski owned, among other businesses. several large timber mills and was interested in mines. The Bolshevists have taken everything Mrs. Zhivotovski said she is deeply appreciative , of English hospitality, and her three children, two i girls und a boy. are being educated on "English I lines."
