"boat, and In doing se>, tripped over
a coll or rope and fell overboard.
His companions did all they ee>uid,
but never saw him again, more than

exact spot at whie-h the accident occurred. The Provincial police were
Immediately   neititied   of   the  accident.
The deceased wus 44 years nf age
and was on his way to Ladner to

The first attempt at burglarising in
Eburne was made Thursday evening
shortly after 6 o'clock at G. L, Orms-
by's store, corner of Townsend road
and 'Granville street. Mr. Ormshy
was attacked by a stranger while he
was closing his store. .Mr. Ormshy
kicked the fellow, who immediately
ran away. In company with Mr.
Vermelyea, an attempt was made to
locate the fellow, but without success.
Fire destroyed the residence of Mr.
W. Tufnail on Friday morning. The
cause was a defective chimney. About
five o'clock. .Mr. Tufnail lit the fire
in the stove, later going to the barn.
Mrs. Tufnail. awakened by the cries
of her child, hurried with the child
from her mom to find the house a
mass of flames. The only part of the
furniture she could save was a sewing
machine and a few chairs, these being
near the door.
Delegations from Point Grey and
South Vancouver called upon the
municipal committee of the Legislature on Thursday morning. The delegation from 'Point Grey consisted of
Reeve Harvey, Councillor Allan and
Mr. B. A. Cunliffe. Some time ago
they asked the government to give
the municipality power tee run motor
bunas within the boundaries of the
municipality and also to extend such
service to neighboring municipalities
with the consent of three-fifths of
the electors voting on the question.
The government referred the matter
to the municipal committee and the
argument on the matter was presented.

Two holdups have been reported
during the past week, but strange to
say, neither of them are being taken
at  all   seriously.
The fi""-L't occurred about a week
ago, when a resident of the district
was on his way home. He claims
that he was joined on the road by
a man who took a seat beside him
in the rig, compelled him to drive
two and a half miles past his own
premises, relieved him of a dollar a
mile���to wit, two and a half de>llars,
and then ordered him to move along
ln such a way as to enable him to
make a getaway. Report says that
the alleged victim was asleep in his
buggy al! the way home and dream-d
it all.
The next alleged holdup was on
Wednesday night, and Mr. G. Baker
was the supposed victim. The event
toe��k place near Mr. Ormiston's house
on Westham street, when a man
ste-pped onto the sidewalk In the darkness (the electric light near there was
out, as usual) and confronted him.
���Mr. Baker thought he noticed something suspicieius in the holdup man's
hand, and he therefore leaned forward and reached for his hip pocket,
as though to draw a gun. The suspicious character is then reporte-d to
have turned tail and "skidooed." No
words were spoken anel in all probability it was a case of mutual misapprehension.

I��omini-ui    Government    Will    Place
New  and Fast  Vessels on  Ihe
Pacific Co����t.
OTTAWA, Feb. 6.���Yesterday afternoon Mr. II. S. Clements (Com'.x-
Atlin), moved for the papers, correspondence and reports between Capt.
Newcombe and the Marine and Fishery Department, relating to the patrol and protection service for the
fisheries on the Pacific .Coast.
He pointed out the importance of
the protection of the Pacific fisheries,
last year amounting to ten million
dollars out of twentynine millions for
the whole of Canada. He pointed
out how a few years ago there were
52 poaching vessels which pilfered
two million dollars' worth. Now there
are over _00 poaching vessels which
steal 65,000.000 pounds of halibut
yearly. The present protection vessels are Inadequate, being able to
steam only 8 to 10 knots hourly, while
the poachers are much faster and are
equipped   with  wireless  telegraphy.
He advocated the building of three
up-todate steemers able to steam 15
lo 18 knots and equipped with wireless telegraphy. These, vessels should
not be under the control of the Naval
Service Department. They could
drive poachers freem the bays where
they catch bait and clean their catch.
Mr. G. H. Barnard (Victoria) commented on the open way in which the
poaching business is conducted in Seattle, and on the humiliation Inflicted
on the province and Dominion by the
Sarins way in which the American
"j-eachers defy Canadian regulations
and interests. He mentioned a case
where a vessel was seized and was
released on paying a $50 fine, because
the owned was a friend of the Laurier government. He held that new
protection cruisers should he built ��n
the Pacific Coast.
Wanted Three New Vessels.
Mr. H. H. Stevens (Vancouver)
urged the construction of three vessels of the same type as the poachers,
about 100 tons and of 15 knots speed.
These should be under the Fisheries
Department, the Canadian navy being
a joke. He went on to refer to the
substitution of Orientals for white
-sen ln the fishing industry and the
far reaching effects on the industry
Mr. Stevens also drew attention to
the farming out of licenses and to the
wasteful and inhuman methods pursued in the wha'ing trade
.Mr. W. H. Sheppard -.Nanaimo)
dwelt upon the scandalous traffk- in
licenses, and Mr. Thompson, of Yukon, spoke of the poaching in Hecate
���Straits Hon. J. D. Hazen, after paying the usual compliments to members who had opened the subject, said
that their statements had teen correct. Protection within the three-mile
limit had been inadequate, and the
r'i hlng fleet was n [inhered ly hundreds,
He   then   outlined   at   some   length
the  measures  which   the  government
is taking to meet the situation. These
are that the obsolete and useless Kes
trel and Restless are to be sold.
Three vessels are to be procured,
two for protection and one for patrol
Appropriations of $275,000 for the
former and $75,000 fe.r the latter are
in the estimates. The new vessels
may be ready this year. One of the
protection vessels may be bought, but
the others will be built, and the building will be done on the Pacific if possible.
Pending iheir completion, tw ��� suitable vessels \eill be chartered a; $100
per day. An appropriation of S'0.000
is provided for this purpose.
Mr. Hazen. however, declined to
iake the protection service cut f the
Naval Service Department. The administration was the same It. any
event, he observed, and there were
reasons  of departmental conve.   ence.

the co-operation of the two governments regarding immigration and agriculture through the development of
Northern Ontario. The prosperity of
the province, especially in agricultural
development, was favorably commented on. A high tribute was paid

this afternoon Mr. Hawthornthwaite

demanded to know why both notices

After some questioning and cross-

that both questions hael been submitted to him by the Clerk of the

Good Sized Congregation Attends First
Service Held i�� Now Baptist Edifice In (jucensborough.
The new Baptist Church at Queens-
borough was formally opened on Sunday afternoon by Rev. A. F. Baker
and Rev. Mr, Howe, a recent arrival
from Wales. There was a good sized
congregation and the sermon delivered by Lev. Mr. Howe, on "The Touch
e.f Christ," was listened to with interest and attention.
The erection of the building was
made necessary by the fact that the
Sunday School, which has been carried on for about a couple of years is
Crane's Hall, found itself without a
place to assemble. The hall was
cheerfully granted by Mr. Crane until
such time as he found it necessary to
remodel it for eethe-r purposes. The
new building was therefore erected
and c.implted so that but little break
has been made in the work of the
Sunday  school.
The little church, which is located
a short distance beyond the Queens-
borough postoffice, was erected by Mr.
D. Bell, the contractor, and is comfortably finished within , being neatly
plastered and wel! lighted. The structure freem back to front is 39 feet In
length and is 2. feet wide. It Is built
up well from the ground in order to
be free of the dampness of the island
soi! and will seat from 150 to 175 people comfortably, The property as it
stands is valued without equipment at
from $1200 to $1400. It is hoped soon
that the street will be opened up and
that the electric light will be laid onto
the ouilding.
Hereafter the .Sunday School will
assemble at - o'clock each Sunday
and a preaching service will be held
at 3 o'clock.

important        resolution protesting
against the high assessment rate on
farm lands in various portions of the
province was passed at a meeting of
the Richmond Farmers' Institute helJ
here recently and copies of the motion will be sent to the Premier, the
Minister of Agriculture and the Cental Farmers' Institute:
"Whereas, owing to excessive speculation in farm lands ln British Columbia for subdivision and other pur-
poses, the assessment In some Instances has been increased beyond all
reason, thereby compelling majiy
farmers to sell their holdings; and,
whereas, many of these subdivisions
are left lying idle growing nothing
but weeds; and, whereas, there Is no
farm settlement In British Columbia
Immune from speculation, and especially In the vicinity of cities and railway centres; and, whereas, this speculation is a serious detriment to permanent agricultural settlement and
Intensive farming, thereby contributing largely to the high cost of living.
"Therefore, be it resolved by the
memlbers of the Richmond Farmers'
institute, that the Provincial government be hereby requested to at once
amend the Municipal Clauses Act,
fixing a limit, not to exceed $500 per
acre, on the Assessment of fatm or
agricultural land. In any part of British Columhia while held and occupied
hy bona fide settlers for farm or agricultural purposes."

The Reason  For the  Failure of Napoleon and Papacy.
Scripturnll.v. the Kingdom is desertb
ed as Earth's l-'ifth Universal Empire
I remind you of the Divinely Inspired
dream of King Nebuchadnezzar, as iu-
terpreted by the Prophet Daniel. The
great image of Daniel ii, 31 was described as representing the four successive Universal Empires of earth-
Babylon. Medo-Persla, Grecia aud
Home. No tifth Universal Empire has
been possible: bence the failure of Nn-
poleou and of Papacy to accomplish
their intentions.
The Pastor declared that the present
governments of Europe represent the
ten toes of Nebuchadnezzar's image,
and expressed the belief that very
soon they will be smitten in a great
time of trouble, as outlined In this
prophecy. The trouble will entirely
sweep away all present human govern
ments. and the Kingdom t-f Messiah
will gradually, during a thousand
years, fill the whole earth.
This, in Nebuchadnezzar's vision
was pictured in the stone, taken out ot
the mountain without bands, miracu
louBly, wbicb smote the image in its
feet and then became, itself, a great
Mountain or Kingdom, and filled the
whole earth.
Anticipating thoughts in the mind-
of bis hearers. Pastor Russell claimed
that Christendom has been astray for
some time on this point: that it has dee-lured Christ's Kingdom as already ex
isting The kingdoms of Europe unit
edly are called Christendom, which
means Christ's Kingdom. But alas:
said the Pastor, how untrue! The king
dems claim upon their coins to be
reigning by the grace of God. yet the
Bible says that they are -'kingdoms ot
this world,' and that the great ruler
is "Satan, the Prince of this world."
The Church Is the Kingdom.
Tbe Pastor claimed, however, that
the Church is the Kingdom of Messiah,
ln an embryotic state, it is tiie Kingdom of heaven suffering violence, as
.lesiw said iMattbew xi. 12.1 The
King suffered violence. His Apostles
suffered violence, and all of His faithful followers since then bave suf
fered violence, This lesson, to en
dure violence us good soidiers. is oue
of tbe tests of loyalty upon the called
and Chosen, who. proving faithful, may
become Joint-heirs with Jesus in His
Messianic Kingdom.
As the glorified Jesus is to be  the
Great King, the Great Priest and the
Great Judge of the world during the
thousand years of  Mis glorious reign.
so the elect Church, gathered from ev
ery nation, people, kindred and tongue,
are   to   be   under priests,   under kings
and subordinate judges.    The   Kiugly
Office will be for the ruling, controll- j
ing aud subduing, with authority und
power: the Priestly Otlice will  be ex
ercised   for   the   blessiug.   encourage- j
ment. Instruction and assistance of a!!

fious privileges of that time to become |

The title of Judge is a comprehensive one: It includes the giving of a
trial as well as the passing and exe-
e-utlon of the sentence at the close.
The trial Day for the world will be a
thousand years long. (See II Peter 111.
7. 8.) St. Paul says. "God bath appointed a day in which Ue will jndge
the world in righteousness." He also
advises ns. "Know ye not that the
saints shall judge the world?'

Fruit TTrt* Not Exempt.
OLYMPIA. Wash., Feb. 8.���Despite
che fact that the State Legislature has
passed a law exempting fruit trees
from taxation, the State Tax Commission, in an opinion to the asse.s-sor
Of lOheian County, declares that fruit
trees are not exempt. The ommission
holds that thc- custom of not taxing
tree* is without authority, tinder the
State constitution. In this connection
a decision of the Stat. Supreme Court
is cited t-i show that the Legislature
has no power to exempt any property
from taxation.

Gauzes and Thin Materials Lend
Themselves Charmingly te These
Soap Bubble and Rainbow Surfaces.
Fichus to Continue Populalr.
It looks very much as though the
majority of our clothes this fall would
be changeable in color. This Idea is
already beginning abroad and Is quite
the moment's madness among the
women who are expected to exploit
something new each month. At the
coronation ln London a great number
of gowns, hats, wraps, parasols and
stockings were worn that were
changeable and iridescent.
There is no doubt that this novelty
will be greeted with quite a good deal
of enthusiasm. There may be many
mistakes made tn choosing unbecoming   and   ungraceful   colors,   but  the
amateur can be more safely relied
upon to do this than she could to
choose among the vivid colors, sue h
as red, blue, green and black, that
have been forced upon her for the
last two years.
Mind you, these changeable tones
will not be vivid. There ls no splash
of opposing colors, such as in plaid or
stripes or checks. The mingling is
very well done by artistic dyers, and
tbe fabric simply looks one color ir
one light and one color in another.
Women have been delighted with
the effect as already seen in chiffon
cloth and ln gauzes. They prevailed
last winter among those who dressed
exceedingly well, and the effect waa
alluring. The gauzes lend themselves
admirably to the changing lights and
shadows of mingled tones, and as the)
were draped over solid colors the effect was not startling.
A soap bubble Is always less vivid
than a rainbow, and so It is that >i
changeable surface is far less conspicuous than a welt denned one iv,
more than one color.
Felt hats, It is said, will carry out
tbe idea, and Instead of being dyed in
a solid color will be done in two o��
three mingled ones and then trimine*!
In changeable satin or velvet ribbouts.
Extremely attrae-tive is the flchu pictured���a uew* model that will be much

VANCOUVER. B. C, Feb. 5���
Plunging Into the rear e-nd of a '
stationary iat.rurban tram through
the thick Lfttervenlng bank of fog.
ClraHeiview car No. H.s, heavily loaded wuh passengers, telescoped itself
upon the great st--c-l frame of the
Westminster tram on Hastings street
ea.t at 11 o'clock on Saturday evening. After an hour's toil a wrecking crew were able to jack the pro-
j'icting platform ol the larger car far
enough above that of the other to pull
out the mangled body of Motorman
Anderson of the* city car. who was
killed. Conductor Frede-rick Sumner
of the interurban suffered s>_vere
bruises about the head; Ueorge Pur-
cell, a companion standing near him.
was injured about the head and an
artery of the left shoulder peaetrated;
James Kirkham, a passenger on the
lirandview car, suffered injuries
which made his despatch to the hospital necessary, and some dozen of the
passengers received bruises which
were attended to in nearby houses.
Motorman Anderson, who lived at
224* St. George street, had been in
the employ of the IS. C. E. K. for
some time. He was not married An
inquest will be held.
lt appears that the Westminster
tram which left the i.'arrall street
station at 11 O'clock with Motorman
Carl Lickburg in front and Conductor Sumner behind, was proceeding
very slowly along Hastings street Oe-
hinS a Hastings street east car, and
followed closely by Qrandvtew car No.
288. At Heatley avenue the interurban car stupp-d suddenly owing to
the trolley of th ��� car in front coming
off the wire. The Urandview car
c-aime en at the same rate as before,
and tiie platform of the interurban
crushed in the chest of the motor-
mia  before  h-�� could  escape. The
he*avier framework of the Westminster tram prevented very much of the
city car penetrating the vestibule, to
which fact Conductor Sumner probably owes his life. The roof of the
Oraadview car tore great pieces of
flesh from his head so that several
stitches will be necessary, but it is
not believed that the skull was seriously injured.
His companion. Mr. Purcell, suffered most from pieces of glass striking
him. The passengers who received
injuries were mostly in the rear end
of the Grandview car.

Historic Ceremony Performed in
Sewn of Pageantry.
liONDON. Jan. 23.���Amid a scene
of pageantry and in the presence of
an Illustrious company, Earl G-rey'-
name today was added to the roll of
the Freemen of *.ho historic city of
London, in recognition of his services
to the Empire as governor-general of
Canada. This, the highest honor the
citizens of LnnJon can bestow, has
been the coveted poseesslon of the
first British statesmen and warriors
all through English history.
By his accession to this body, which
from Saxon and Norman days, has
preserved London's liberties against
kings and parliaments alike, Ear!
Grey gains quaint privileges. He is
given the right of Ingress and agresa
and freedom from arrest within the
city limits. He may even raise an
army in defence of the King, or to
safeguard civic rights. Unhappily for
freemen, in these Lloyd George days,
they have lost the old privileges of
freedom from taxation.
Lord and Lady Strathc-ina and Dr.
R. J. B. and Hon. Mrs. Howard were
among the Canadians and friends of
Canada specially summoned to witness
the ceremonial. There were al90 present Lady Grey, Lady Minto, Hon. G.
H. Perley, Sir Hibbert and Lady Tupper, Sir Thomas Skinner, Genera!
Hanbury-Williams, Viscount Milner,
Lady Eileen Roberts, Mr. Alfred
