VKTnl-JlA. Jan. 24.���'Mr. John
<'liver addressed the committee of the
Provincial Legislature yesterday with
regard to the situation created in Ladner by the municipality having made
a contract with the B.C. Electric
Railway for lighting the streets of
th6 village. It appears that under
the present law the whole district
would have to be taxed to pay for
this   lighting   and   an   amendment   is
sought whereby the- cost can be as-
.^.���.-..i i on those Immediately benefited.
Mr. Oliver also brought up the ques-
t ...ii of issuing bonds fe>r maintaining
tin- Delta dykes. These dykes are
now kept up by assessment, which
is seven dollars on th�� front anil runs
back to one dollar. As all of this
land would be submerged if the dykes
gave way, the present arrangement
Ls considered unfair and some new
basis  of assessment  is asked   in   re-
: spect   to   future   debentures.

Canada later on in the year, arr.v-
ing in Vancouver and travelling across
the Dominion. The Hon. George F.
Pearce, Minister of State for Defence
has accepted the Invitation of Canada
to send a representative party of cadets to take part in the great gathering of Empire cadets at Toronto Exhibition this year. At the conference
held here between tho Premiers of
tha various states and Prime Minister
Fisher of the Commo.niwealth, the former have rejected the offer of the latter to take over the savings banks
of the states and provide capital for
a Commonwealth 'bank. Mr. Fisher
likewise rejected the counter proposal
of ihe State Premiers tu grant the proposed Commonwealth bank a quarter

It was announced at last night's
meeting of the Board of Trade that
the board's efforts had been crowned
with success In the matter of steamship communication between this city
and Victoria, the owners of the
Steamer Alaskan having decided to
put ihat vessel on a triangular run
between Xew Westminster, Victoria
and Seattle, touching at way points
>viii a necessary, This service will be
weekly, in the meantime. Since "the
mooting in December, the transportation committee had be>cn able to secure from various shippers assuram-e
of sufficient freight to form a basis
on which th- service could be estab-
Itshed, and the vessel's owners, faithful tei iheiir promises, had taken I lie-
steps mentioned. Although It had
been tho intention at first to make
tho servic bi-weekly, the committee
had recommended a weekly trip.
which will enable the vessel to sail
on a given day each week and thus
make for stability.
Delta Business.
"The time is ripe for us to go after the trade of Delta," declared Mr.|
John R. Duncan, chairman of the
transportation committee, in repotting on the matter of tram communication with Ladner. lie pointed out
that Vancouver was determined to
capture this trade, that they would
move Heaven and earth to get it,
am] that they would finally take it
away from New Westminster by-
means of a bridge over Woodward
Slought, in spite of the fact that a
line up the south bank of the Fraser
to the Westminster bridge was the
ieigical solution of the transportation
problem for practically ail of Delta.
unless the people of the city took
prompt and effective steps to secure
such a line as the latter.
li was finally decided to leave the
matter in the hands of a committee
which wi'.i interview the Delta Board
eif Trade and ask'them for their cooperation in an attempt to have a
line built which will carry the trade
of Delta New Wcstminsterwarda.
The Mexican Trade.
Much of the evening's discussion
was of securing, holding or developing trade relations with various points
and the last business of the evening
was of the same nature, being introduced by Mr. L. B. Lusby, who drew*
the attention of tbe board to the fact
that the Canadian-Mexican S. S.
line had practically abandoned this
city as a regular port of call. Some
years ago, tho management of this
line had promised to make New
Westminster a regular call if certain
wharfage   facilities     were     provided
This line, Mr. Lusby pointed out,
Is subsldied by the Dominion government for the purpose of fostering
trade relations between Mexico and
Canada, but the subsidy Is about to
expire in a few months. The board
therefore unanimously passed a resolution calling on the government, before the subsidy is renewed, to insert a proviso In the agreement that
the vessels of the Canadian-Mexican
line make New Westminster a regular
port of call, and also that the same
rates be charged to this city as fo
Vancouver or Victoria. A copy of
this resolution will be sent to the
department, and also to Mr. J. ]_>.

A resolution passed by the Fort
George Board of Trade and forward-
ed to tho local board for their approval was received and filed, after
Mr. W. J. Kerr had reported for the
special committee which had this
matter in hand, to the effect that
when in Victoria he had been present
at an interview with the Provincial
Executive granted to a delegation in
this connection. On that occasion,
Premier MoBride had stated that this
year five hundred miles of steel will
be laid on Vancouver Island, and a
proportionate sum of money expended on the mainland, which would

CHILLIWACK, B. (*., Jan. 25���Tho
barn, live stock, Implements and winter's feed of Mr. Charles Kerr, who
is farming the old Maynard's place,
were destroyed by fire last night.
Five valuable horses perished in the
disastrous blaze as well as buggies,
harness,  seed,  grain  and some cattle.
During milking operations a lantern was overturned an.l. exploding,
started a fire that in an instant had
turned tbe> big barn into a raging
furnace. The building is Insured but
the loss will be very heavy.
Mr. Kerr and family moved here
a short time ago from Vancouver,
having purchased this farm from Mr.
J. D. Maynard. Recently the family
was bereaved of a child who was
stricken with fever. Much sympathy
ls felt for them In this tatest misfortune.
SEATTLE, Jan. 2.4.���It has been
found that out of 23,000 voters already registered for the March election, one-third art women. One feature that has helped is the fact that
it ls not necessary for the women to
give their exact age. All they have
to do is to say "Legal age."

OTTAWA, Jan. IS���The House of
Commons debated old age pensions
yesterday and a net result of the discussion was as follows:
Hon. W. T. White gave an excellent
exhibition of careful parliamentary
work: Mr. W. K. .Vickie, M.P. for
Kingston, Stepped forward Into the
front rank among the debaters of the
nous..; the Conservatives as a whole
Showed marked sympathy with the
idea of social legislation, and the
Liberals, while divided, were rather
opposed tj it.
The subject cann* up in the form
of   a   resolution   moved   hy   Mr.   J.   II.
Burnham, M.P, for East Peterboro,
calling for a committee to investigate)
the subject, Mr. Burnham said that
end age pension systems were in
foroe m France and Germany ajid
were about to be Introduced into the
United States. ln all cases it was
found to work perfectly and was
worthy of consideration in Canada.
The basis of an obi age pension system, he said, wa.s doing away with
the indiscriminate and promiscuous
granting of charity and raising old
people of small means to the status
of  independent  citizenship.
With tha system in force, old people, Instead of being at the beck and
call of charitable or uncharitable
people as the case might be, would
be their own masters. ln Canada
there were about 30,000 old people
who would come within the scope of
the pension.
Tiie minister of finance said the
subject was one which naturally enlists sympathy. There was no more
pathetic spectacle in life than old
age confronted with privation and
poverty. The real question in Canada was. however, whether conditions were such as to require what
is admitted to be adverse criticism
ol this sort and whether if public
opinion is yet ripe for it. As tar as
he was aWare there had been no public agitation in Canada for legislation in Great Britain legislation
was preceded by an agitation existing almost over a generation. Agitation of that kind was necessary
before legislation involving an expenditure could or should be brought
The minister compared British
unemployment with Canadian prosperity, and was inclined to think that
such relief as was needed could be
obtained from provincial and municipal charities as well as from filial
piety of sons and daughters.
"Do we wish." he added, "to announce to the world that we have
reacheel a stage when it is necessary
to enact oldage pensions?" The minister, however, acceded to a request
for a committee  to investigate.
Mr. A. Yerville was for old age pensions, anel said the labor men favored
Mr. F. F. Pardee wished to see the
rural districts canvassed in behalf of
the existing system  of annuities.
Mr. W. F. Nlckle followed, and unhesitatingly favored old age pensions.
He doubted the accuracy of Mr.
Whites opinion that there had been
no agitation, and he declared that
Canada had reached a point where
that social legislation was needed.

Dr. Clark 'Red beer) resented the
Statement that poverty in Great
Britain   was   on   the   increase. He
believed the percentage of poverty
in Britain was lower than in any
other country in Europe. There was,
he admitted, a danger that the measure before the house would tend to
the possible production of human
failures. He believed that charity,
if not wisely administered, produces
the  evil   it   is   intended   to   remedy.
After some further discussion tho
debate   was  adjourned.
Some other motions were passed,
and the house adjourned at 8 o'clock.
���K*"l'-R1SDA!LK. Point Grey. Jan. 2".
���A letter from the municipal solicitor on the tram question was read
at Point Grey Council meeting on
Tuesday. The solicitor says that
under the decision of the Court ot
Appeal, "the ofllcers of the municipality, who undertook to authorize
the laying of the rails, had no authority to de) so, and their acts were,
therefore, not the acts of the muni-
ollp-ality. It <=eems clear that the
tracks aro so affixed to the streets
as to be incorporated with the land,
and assuming that this was done by
tho British Columbia Efleetrie without
authority, I am forced to the conclusion that in strict law the British
Columbia Electric. Railway Company
has no right to remove the tracks.
"As to the right of the municipality
to remove the tracks it is clear that
the municipality has the right to remove from the streets anything which
is a public nuisance.

VERNON, Jan. 6.���"Frew Year's joy
was turned to gloom for many in
this city and district when the news
circulated on Monday morning of an
appalling fatality at the B.X. Ranch,
about three miles from Vernon,
whereby Mrs. Alex. Me">one!l, one of
the most esteemed among the ladies
of this part of the Okanagan, had
met with her death in a lire which
destroyed their residence in the early
heoirs of that day.
The details of the distressing affair are as follows: The family at
the B.X, Ranch did not retire until
about half-past one on Monday morning, one or two visitors having been
in to watch the old year out. About
half-past three. Mrs. Mclionell, who
was the lir.st to notice the fire, gave
the alarm, and awakened Mr. Mr-
Donell and the rest of the household.
It was seen th it tire had started in
the wall 'behind the open fireplace
in the sitting room, and had already
gained considerable headway, the
room and hall being full of smoke.
Mr. Mclionell, and Miss K. McDonell.
the oldest daughter, made an effort
to nue.st the flames by throwing water
on them, and seeing this was of no
avail they hastened out to a hydrant
near by, which is part of the Vernon
city tire protection system, and is furnished with a hose for just such
emergencies as this. Unfortunate- the
hydrant was frozen, -and would not
work, it being about 15 below zero.
On their return to the house. Miss
McDonell askeel where her mother
was. and somebody replied that she
had gone to an outbuilding with the
two youngets children. The bedrooms
upstairs had been visited by Miss Mc-
Ponell and found tn be empty. Thev
then engaged themselves in moving
out some of the furniture from the
front room, when Miss McDonell
again becoming alarmed at her
mothers' absence, rushed upstairs and
called to her She thinks she heard
her answer from the attic. By this
time the fire and smoke had reached
such a pitch that she was compelled
to retire.
It appears certain that for some
reason the unfortunate lady went up
to the attic, after having seen that
all the occupants o" the boi'��-> he-*
safely gotton out. She proba/bly was
overcome by the smoke, though exactly how she came to her death will
never be known. As soon as the fire.
which completely destroyed the house,
had burned out, a search of the ruins
was made, and a few calcined bones
were found.

Rightly Understood the Bible's Message Is One of Great Joy For All
People���Tells That He Himself Was
Once on Life's Sea Without Chart or
Shanghai, China.
Jan. 7th. ��� The
Committee of Foreign Missions Investigation seemed
pleased with its
reception here.
Special honors
were accorded
General Hall aud
Pastor Russell,
the former because of bis oifl-
^^^^^^^^^ cial position as
second ln command of the United States Army, the
latter as the Chairman of the Committee. We report Pastor Russell's discourse:���
Pasteir Russell greatly enjoyed his
visit to tiie Chinese 1'aris. It was an
experience be hud longed for from
childhood. Early in life he had inquired respecting the fate of the
heathen and had roceiv*>d the answer
tbat "Without t'tiith It is lmpevssible to
please God." and that "there ls none
other Name given uuder heaven
whereby we must be saved" than the
name of Jesus, and through faith in
His blood. He then inquired the fate
of the uusaved. and got the answer or
all "orthodox creeds," that such would
be consigned for all eternity to a
place where they would suffer Indescribable tortures.
Supposing that the Bible was the
foundation ot these creeds he ahau
d.me'd the Bible, ami for nearly two
years wus on the sen of life without chart or compass, seeking after a
true God not less uoble and loving and
Just than the- very best of Ills human
Keeling surfc that a wise, just, loving Coil, having made man with men
tal capacity to appreciate Himself,
would make a revelation of His character an.l Bis purposes, he sought for
a book containing such a revelation of
the Divine will, as his heart and bead
could accept. Having abandoned the
Bible, he sought the teachings of other
sacred books of the world, ouly to find
them still more disappointing.
Hungry of soul, he returned to the
Bible, thinking possibly he had studied
it before through the distorted spectacles of human creeds. His fresh investigations brought a blessing! Nowhere had he found so glorious a representation of the true. Divine character as in Jesus and His teachings!
Truly, he said. "Never man spake like
fhis man!" Final!" be saw the great
difficult*, which had blinded himself
aud Others to the Divine love and
gracious plan of the Bible
The Resurrection of the Dead.
This discovery was that the penalty
for sin is not everlasting torture after
death, and that tbe Bible does not so
teach, lt dee lares. "The wages of sin
is death;" "The soul that sinueth. it
shall die" (Romans vi. 23; Ezekiei
iviil. 20.1 He perceived that for six
thousand years the world has been suffering the very penalty which God declared to Adam, "Thou shalt surely
die"; "In the sweat of thy face shalt
thou eat brenel until fhon return to the
ground from whence thou wast taken.'
He sought the Bible remedy for all
this and found that no remedy could
be applied only as the Divine sentence
should be settled for Adam by a substitute���that then ouly could the curse
be removed. In full harmony with all
this came the Scriptural presentation
that the Ouly Begotten Son of God
had left His spiritual plane of glory
and become a Mnn, thnt "He by the
grace of (Jod should tante death for every man": "Christ died for our sins,
according to the Scriptures, and rose
again for our justification."
Pursuing this Bible study be soon
found that the hope of humanity centers In the rmurrerttntl of the (lend: "As
by a man came death, by a Man also
conies the resurrection of the dead:
for as all in Adam die, eveu so all In
Christ shall he made alive���every man
in his ovtn order," or rank, il Corin
thians xv, 21. 22.1
Two Very Different Salvations.
The Pastor was glad as he thought
of the hundreds of millions ol patient
Chluese who will have a share ln the
great redemption secured by ihe death
of Jesus, and not only so. but iheir
ancestors, tho-Bandit of millions, will
also have a share, for "Jesus Christ
by the grace of God tsnt*'d death for
e.ery man;" "He is a propitiation [sat
Isfaction] for our sins (the Church's
sins], and not for ours only, but also
tor the sins of the whole world." Here
ire tbe two different salvations se-
eured through tbe death of Jesus.
Only one of these has yet been made
effective���"owl-**"���not the world's. Ours
is to be the First Resurrection, the
world's is to he a subsequent one.
The elect Church, of which Jesus Is
the Head, and his saintly followers the
meml>ers. will reign for a thousand
"Tears, overflowing sin snd death,
bresking tbe shackles of ignorance snd
sapersiltlon, uplifting liumaulty out
of sin and degradation to full tinman
perfection. The earth Is to be mas's
Paradise, which will reach perfection
by tbe close of Messiah's reign. All
whs then reject this light will be destroyed Is the Second Death-
