General Manager of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Limited.
New Westminster, Dec. 16-
Mr. Justice Morrison yesterday
morning administered a rebuke
to Rev. Dr. H. W. Fraser because
the latter had commented in a
sermon last evening on the riot
cases now before the special assize, some disposed of and some
not reached by the jury.
His lordship's remarks came
without previous notice when
Mr. A. D. Taylor, counsel for
the crown, made an application
to have tho jury in the South
Wellington cases, which were
started this morning, kept in
confinment during the course of
the trial. Mr. Taylor said that
there had been an attempt to
tamper with the last jury.
Mr. J. Edward Bird, council
for the defence, in the course ol
of a dignified reply, denied thai
his clients had done anything ti*
attempt to influence any juryman. He referred to a recent
speech of Gosden in .the Horse
Show Building in Vancouver, ii
which warning was given ti
cabinet ministers to be careful
that poison was not administered
to them.
"All union men deplore the
making of those statements, "said
Mr. Bird emphatically.
His lordship agreed to allow
the jury to be kept in custodj
and smilmgly assured the twelve
men that the sheriff had promised to look after them in the verj
best possible manner. The court
however, declined to order intc
custody the ten accused mil
who are out on bail.
Continuing, his lordship sairi
that he regretted that ar Vancouver morning paper had published
the report of a sensational sermon by Rev. Dr. Fraser. dealini
with the strike, the riot, etc,
The court disapproved of tht
practise of trying cases by public discourse before they had beer
heard by the courts. Several of
the cases had not yet been before
the judge and jury, and it was
not only unfair to comment upon
the matters involved, but it was
destihctly against the law to dc
so. It was unfortunate that the
spokesman of a prominent churct
had dealt with matters of the
gravest importance in this way.
J'Dr. Fraser happens to be a
pastor in my own church," Justice Horrison continued. Before
making such statements one
should get the absolute truth of
so grave a situation as that which
exists in British Columbia. I cannot conceive of a more serious act
than to start a campaign causing jurymen to neglect their
sworn duty. If Dr. Fraser's statements are correct, then a very
serious state of affairs exists
The Nanaimo Daily Herald, of
which Mr. J.S.H. Matson of
Victoria is the proprietor, has
ient the following telegram tt
The Province for publication:
"The Daily Herald of Nanaimo
ihallenges the Rev. Dr. Fraser
if Vancouver to make good the
several statements he is reported
to have made in his sermon on
Sunday evening, as reported' in
he Vancouver Sun on Monday,
Dec. 15, in reference to the strike
if coal miners in Nanaimo and
:he subsequent arrest of the
nen charged with rioting, the
same tn be debated in a
leries of articles published in
my daily newspaper of Van-
•ouver that the Rev. Dr. Fraser
nay select."
Dr. Fraser has declined the
nvitation saying he did not care
to enter into any further discussion of the strike. He had taken
the notorious Hedley pamphlet

The Socialist Mayor of Cumberland is again in the field, asking for reelection. His election
card makes very pretty reading
but it fails to ring true. After
throwing a few honeyed words
to the wage-earners, very flattering to their vanity, the Mayor
proceeds to state that "thestrict-
est economy will 'continue' to
have his closest attention."
"Continue" is good. We suppose
he means hy this that illegal
taxes will "continue" to be exacted from the taxpayers, and
that the city funds will "continue" to be disbursed among the
lawyers in an endeavour to force
payment of these illegal exactions. The next clause in Mayor
Campbell's ticket is very good
and indicates an unexpected degree of magnanimity. We are
informed that local improvements
of an expensive character will be
proceeded with when the local
property owners, to be benefited
thereby, desire them and are at
Lhe same time prepared to bear
the cost," Now under these
conditions we wonder how our
enlightened Mayor is going to do
other than proceed with them.
Under the conditions named it
would manifestly be his duty to
proceetl with them, we fail to
see why he should use this opportunity to pat himself on the back
for doing what the majority of
men would as a matter of course.
I'he succeeding clause is an announcement that he will raise
money for general improvements
on the credit of the municipality.
We admire the Mayor's sanguine
temperament, but we cannot help
feeling that he and his satellites
have done their best during the
past year to shatter what little
credit the city ever possessed.
Perhaps he is unaware of this,
and yet it is very significent that
Mayor Campbell is appealing to
the electorate on almost every
either ground except his past
record. Surely his silence on this
point is not accidental?

he would tell her tie whole truth; tho
story ot his miserable home-coming
trom the moment he had awakened to
consciousness on tho moo. land road
above Cranby Hall; tlie visit of the
man Bister that same evening, the accusation of murder and his tacit acknowledgement of the crime by succumbing to blackmail. She might not

of crime; he begat to despise himself for aavinE held his tongue and
played tie jart of coward—even criminal. Well, Peggy should know and

•fhose to speak and he were tried and

had no knowledge of committing, he
would pay the penalty. He laughed
at the thought. He would not much
care now. Death would he easier
than lift; it would need all his pluck
to cll'ig to the ltttei and none at all
to fling himself once again into tho
unknown. Perhaps t'eath alone held
tie key to the horrid mystery which
surrounded him.' Death—and perhaps this woman his wife.
She had curled herself .p on the
chesterfield beside his chair—a mass
ot purple cushions— disclosing and
hiding her snakelike supple body. He
became conscious rhat her eyes were
fixed on him as though trying to read
his thoughts; ho fancied he saw many
emotions surging up from their dep' s
and among them expectation and curiosity; on her scark lips a little smile
of amused contempt.

She had come to the point with
startling suddenness. It seemed indeed as though Carmen had read his
lletheiinglon was unprepared; he
had no reply ready. Who told you
that Oscar Soral was out of the way?
Carmen waited a moment before replying. She saw that Hetherlngton
was embarrassed and she seemed to
be enjoying lhe situation. He told
nn so himself.
Hetherlngton Jumped lo his feet, but
with an effort recovered his composure

Six Stories Without   Foundation
" Unique Departure In Building
In New York one of the most unique
departures in building construction ever attempted   ia   Is   progress.     The
twelve story building of tie Consolidated Gas Company now being erected
at Fifteenth street and Irving place
has six stories that are practically
soaring In midair without foundation.
The Engineering News explains the
phenomenon as follows;
As the old building ls not strong
enough to bear this additional weight
lt was decided to suspend six of the
aeven additional stories from heavy
girders, the girders tiemselves being supported on steel columns 250
feet high, reaching to tie ground,
alongside the old building. Tic seventh additional story rests on tie
The largest girders are slxty-thre;
feet long, eight fees, deep, and weigh
forty tons each. They are nt an cle-
vatioE of 250 feet above Fifteenth
street. The eight girders, having a
total weight of 300 tons were conveyed
to the foot of East Fiftee.-.th street on
one lighter. Th.*/ wero carried singly from tiere to tie job on trucks of
special constructloi each drawn by
tilrty-four horses. The truck wheels
were of steel and had eighteen-inch
treads. The girder were unloaded
from tie trucks and placed upon the
street by means of a large jteel stiff-
leg derrick with a seventy-foot boom,
Installed on '.he nlneteen'.'i floor of
the new building. The girders were
lifted one at a time, by this same
derrick and placed in their -espective
positions. The actual hoisting and
placing of the girders required twelve
Lours, distributed ever Aug. 1 to 3;
the last girder, weighing forty tons,
being lifted and placed in twelve minutes.
The uplift at tie outer end*, of the
derrick sills was taket by steel
beams and ono and one-fourlh-incli
Bteel cables, tie latter carried down
five stories- and there attached to the
columns at their intersection with tie
floor girders. In addition, nine adjacent panels ot the building structure were diagonally braced ln both
directions with steel cablet, to resist
all tendency toward racking bhe building horizontally. No vibration was
detected when tie girders were set
in place.
To Develop Zinc Mines

mining men of the district, in which
the necessity for tie continuation by
tho Dominior Goveriment ot experiments in tie treatment ot complex

of tie Federal Department of Mines,
instructions to authorize E. Dldolph to
proceed at once with tic work at the
zinc plant in Falrvlew. Expenses of

ne-er fa* and wh'' has a strong flavor in spite oi rarboiling, tie hedgehog Is alwayj ln edible condition and
has meat that Is as tender and white
as that of a Bpring chicken.
The method cf cooking a hedgehog
Is so simple that a novice can learn In
one short lesson. When the cpici
ls permitted to mak< a tmoice he
should shun the large old males,
which at times weigh thirty or forty
po'inds. The preparation consists ln
removing the ,'isceta, washing out the
interior and filling tie cavity with
slices of f* 1 pork, peeled raw potatoes,
sprigs ot sptarmint and wild celery
from tie   rook.
Then, without removing tha quills or
skinning, the body ls plastered thickly
with wet clay from the nearest bank.
Tbt* muddy, bulky mass is thrust into
live coals and covered witj blazing
fagots to be roaster" for two hours.
On removal from tie coals, the clay
Is found to have been baked Into a
hard solid mass, which must be
broken open with an ax or a beavy
stone, whereupon the skin and quills
of the animal cling to the ..lay wrapping and fall away, leaviny the clean
white meat ready to be eaten.
A Statesman
At a meeting of a woman suffrage
organization in Kansas City. Kan., it
was suggested that tbe members talk
to their servants and other women
workers with a viev to forming an
estimate as to tie strength of suffrage sentiment ln that particular locality. One member, wbo bas employed the same washe-woman for the
last six years, reported that she put
the question to this worthy lady.
Aro you ln favor of votej for women? the suffrage womat  asked.
I don't pay attention to politics, the
washerwoman replied, I leave all
that to my husband
Well, bow does your husband stand

obliged to glvo np bis own work and
one day bade E. Vinci finish for blm
a picture which be bad b?gun. The
young man bad such reverence for bis
master's skill C at he shrank trom

would not accept any excuse, but persisted ln bis command, saying simply:
Do your best.
Da Vlncl at laat tremblingly seized
tbe brush and, kneeling before tbe
easel, said tbe following pr yer: It
for the sake of my beloved master that
I Implore skrB-and power tor this undertaking. As he -proceeded bis band

slumbering genius. He forgot himself and was filled wltb enthuslarm
for his work.

Public are Warned   Against   Strong
Smelling. Oily Liniments Containing Harmful Acids and Amonla
Many people have clung to the old-
fashioned idea that a thick, greasy
liniment is the best kind. DoctorB
say not—and they know.
Recently a number of theso white,
oily liniments ero analyzed and they
were found to contain an enormously
high percentage of harmful acids, and
such iriitat.uo chemicals as amonla,
etc. For the moment they may cause
a warm sensation when firs; applied,
bnt their continued use never cures
rheumatism, and only deteriorates the
skin, sets up inflanv atlon, and
causes endless trouble.
When the doctor warns you to quit
using a white, oily liniment—do so.
He knows that a thick liniment can't
penetrate, can't sink through the
pores and reach the seat ot the pain.
When asked his opinion a few days
ago, an important physician stated
that he considered a strong, penetrating pain-subduing liniment, such as
"iVervillne," to be superior to any of
the white ammor.Ii. liniment.. In his
twenty-five years *-f practice he had
witnessed cases of rheumatism, sciatica, and lumbago that simply would
not respond to ordinary treatment—
but Nerviline cured them. The Bame
physician ulso spoke of tho great advantages of keeping a prep.- atlon like
Nerviline in the house, because of
cramps, diarrl.oea, stomach disorders,
earache, toothache, headache, and
such minor ailments. Nerviline Is a
first-class euro. There is scarcely
an ache or a pain, internal or external, that Nerviline won't cure. In
thousands of homes no other paln-rc-
Ileylng medicine is used. Fifty years'
continued success nd the endorsement of the profession are proof thnt

ln the caso. By impersonating the
sister* oi the landlady ot a boarding
houso frequented by friends ot the
robbers she was enabled gradually to
pick up information that was invaluable to the authorities in running
down the criminals. It was this case
that won her promotion and official

T-HE names chosen at the meeting of the Cumberland City-
Voters' League for nomination as mayor and aldermen, respectively, are a strong aggregation and should make a most
useful and effective Council. With the exception of Mr.
John Brown all the men selected have served in the Council
Chamber in former years, two of them being ex-mayor. The
affairs of our town-thanks to the present incompetent administration-are in sad shape and the need of experienced
heads is painfully apparent.
Messrs. Thos. E, Bate, D. R. McDonald, W. Wesley
Willard, Thos. E. Banks, N. McFadyen, Charles J. Parnham
and John Brown are to be commended for their public spirit
and unselfishness in permitting themselves to be nominated,
and we sincerely trust the electorate will realize the city's
present need and confide its destinies to these tried men,
whose names stand for all that is progressive and sound in
its past history.
I have the honor to present myself as a candidate for
Mayor at the forthcoming election.
For seven years I devoted my time and energy serving
your interests as an Alderman, and assure you, that should
I be your choice as Mayor, I will devote my time and energy
in a conscientious manner for the advancement and welfare
of the Municipality.
Yours Sincerely,
THE season of especial goodwill and fellowship towards
our neighbours is close upon us, but it is not yet too late to
ask for consideration towards tne long suffering shop assistant and the hardworking delivery man. Christmas shopping
is an annual event looked forward to by most of us, but we
are afraid that we have often been selfish in that we have
thoughtlessly delayed making our purchases until Christmas
Eve. In the cities a movement is always initiated to get {'..*_•
public to do their shopping as early as possible, and the idea
is both businesslike and humane. It works to the advantage
both of the public and the shop assistant. It ensures
greater attention to one's orders and a greater probability of
being able to purchase what is desired, as supplies frequently become exhausted before the demand. And above
all it gives the shop assistant a chance of enjoying his or her
Christmas Day. Store hours are always prolonged during
Christmas week and if the shop assistants are worked to
death on Christmas Eve, the day of Peace and Goodwill
towards Men is apt to be spent in recuperating exhausted
energies rather than in the solid enjoyment, happiness and
merry times we are wont to associate with Christmas Day.
Let everyone in Cumberland do their shopping early and give
the shop assistants a chance.   They deserve it.
THE Court of Revision has now held its sessions for revising the municipal voters' list and it will perhaps be concluded
that the inclusion of of one's name in the revised list confers
the right to vote. Ordinarily this might be so, although not
necessiarily. In the present instant, however, we are far
from satisfied with some of the decisions given by the Court
of Revision, which in our opinion were often unjustifiable.
We can see no ambiguity in the words " continuous residence " neither is it difficult to determine what constitutes
" British Citizenship." We .are persuaded that many names
are included on the list that have no legal right to be there,
and it is our fixed intention lo challenge each and every
party attempting to exercise the franchise, of whose right to
vote we have our doubts. In such cases we shall ask for the
oath to be administered and, if perjury is committed, we shall
in the public interest invoke the ait! of the law to its utmost
This is plain talk but some of the transactions at the
Court of Revision were so rank that silence ceases to be a |

In order to attach tho silken threads

must carry tho larvae about from one
leaf to another. When two distant
leaves aro to be drawn together a remarkable method is employed. Five
or six r.nts form a chain bridging tho
gap between tho leaves In its mandibles. A numbor of such chains will

Why the Burglar laughed
One of the most interesting collections of burglars' tools is that possessed by Canon Horslcy, rector of
St, Peter's, Walworth, England, who
years ago was chaplain at Clerken-
well and Pentonville. A short time
ago he took to a bazaar a big assortment of skeleton keys, jemmies, crowbars, and a photograph of Charles
Peace, once a member of his congregation. The canon is an authority on
burglaries, and tells a good story of
a brrrglar who uneu to carry pieces of
doctored liver for silencing dogs. One
night ho entered a house, saw a (log's
staring eyes in tho hall, and at once
produced tho liver. The animal did
not move and on close inspection the
burglar discovered lhat the dog was
stuffed. Hero is a joke! he thought and
laughod so uproariously tbat the members of tho household awoke and he
was caught.

Education is ultimately tesled by its
power to develop efficiency, knowledge, wisdom and enthusiasm. It
is Important to distingulth between
miscellaneous information and well
organised knowledge. Not how much
but what kind of knowledge does a
man possess is the vital point. Facts
and experience aro valu hie only
when they aro properly related and
raised into general principles. Education today must deal with actual
life, must give the student insight
into natin*'*, man and society. Studios
must be kept In fruitful relation to

Pictures to Teach Farmers

Ontario Is nothing if not wide awake.
Thanks to its activities, the quality
of agriculture in tho province during
tbe last decade bas substantially improved, as offlrrii.1 figures ohew. Learning that the moving picture muchino
was being utilized elsewhere tor agricultural demonstration work, the
officials of the Department have been
studying the possibilities of the cinematograph for the extensicn of their
own work. It is believed that moving pictures work, bo particularly
valuable at the lectures which for

Tbe heart Is aupplled from the brain

One pair, the cardlo motor nerves, net
only to spur up the heart to quicker

waiting tho occasion for applying tbo

It bna been said that the heart runs In
a pair of tightly held reins, und tho
almllo la true, for these nerves check
the speed.
Fear, worry, disorder of the stomach
or nervous system causes these canllo

nb.-'Ut your uncle, w'no was at the
battle of Trafalgar." she explained,
ar' a flush oi pride and pleasure
enine to the wriirkled cheeks ol the
old lady.
, She is Mr?. John Campbell, ar-eil
eighty-two years, and lives with a
married daughter at 15 Bishop street,
Toronto, says a writer in Tbe Torouto
Her utHle, John McMurcliy, of
Mirlreese, in tire Isle of Kilincny. oft
the coast of Argyllshire, waa a gunner's mnte al onrd the Victory nt the
battle or Trafi.l"ar, where an English
fleet of t'.veiity-seven ships defeated
the combined fleets of Trance nnd
.Spain, numbering thirty-three ships
in all. Mrs. Campbell lias been in
this country tor thirty-three years.
She is a widow, who lias been blind
for nearly ball a century. Witli increasing age slight deafness hns coma
upon ber, but her mind is still clear
as to the manner of man ber uncle
"A tall man and strong." she said
when questioned regarding him.
"Last time I saw bim bis face waa
clear and bright as a young man's
should be. He fought the French
for twenty-four years. Aye, twenty-
four years," she mused. "Was 'pressed' when he was nineteen, taken prisoner at bis first tight, and hold in
France for a year; but be made them
pay for that—he made them pay for
"A great and a brave man be was.
Gentlemen came from all o'er tho
country to speak tae him of Nelson
an' the fights wi' the French." She
was losing the preciscness of speech
which marked tier first words. "I
couldna tell ye all tbat was said fol
mrs. job* cAiirsm,
tome ot the men only spoke Englitn,
an' t'was kin' o' hard on me thot*
days, wts English, for I first learned
the Gaelic—an' I haa it yet," ahs
said proudly.
"But I was tellin' ye about my
Uncle McMurcliy, the grann' man
that he was. '{cared me like * very
daughter, he did, for he had neither
chick nor child ot bis ain. Oft I
hae heard him tell o' that bluidy
battle n' Trafalgar. He waa gunner's
male on the Victory, an' it was hia
crew helped fire the first broadside.
An' I've heard bim tell o' the shot
which felled Nelson, an' how the admiral raised hiniael' up on hit elbow
an' continued gien' orders whiles the
life's blu i ebbed away.
An' 1 mind 1 ,'.j tellin* the gentlemen who came to see him, tbat Nel-
«on truly said, 'Thank God, I ha'
done my duty,' liefore Ire died, to say
naethin' o' words to the effect that
the enemv were beaten.
"He helped carry Nelson below, an'
then went back to the fight, where
the bluid was boilin' in (be men that
served the guns that day, to that
some men were crying, and the wicked among them were swearing terrible things against tbe enemy—an'
they fought, an1 fought, till thev won
the battle. For so my L-.--.le told m«
an' others beside.
"Some brave thing my uncle 'lid
about the tin i of the battle of Trafalgar—I diuna ken just what t'was
now, for he was not the man to talk
o'er much of what things he had done
—led the captain of the chip to say,
'McMurcliy, yo can hae whatever yon
like; name it, an' it will lie given tae
ye,' " she smiled. "An* what do you
suppose he asked for? Why. notlii'C
more or less than tlrst half of hit
pension should be paid to bis wife
after his death. Bhe was much
younger than him, and she lived to
get about thirty pounda a year from
the Government, to say nothing' c'
prize money, an' the like, which had
made my uncle quit* a well-to-do
Her voice began to falter » li'.tie,
but after a moment's pause she weot
on. "Oh, ay, I eome o" gnid stock.
My nncle was as high rank as he
could be when he left the service, an'
all the officert bad a guid word for
him, ior he was a praun fighter an' a
great an' willing worker.". She paused again, then, "Why wouldn't ha
lie?" she said. "All his fowk wero

living on it, captains an' sailors, an'
fishermen,, an' a'. But I'll be. bid*
