Princess Charlotte
Reaches Victoria
The steamer Princess Charlotte af-
rived at Victoria Wednesday marn-
ing from the yards of the builders at
Go'vcai, Scotland, and her arrival
marked an epoch in the history of the'
local shipping trade, says the Colonist. With thc plate-glass windows of
her observation room boarded with
a barricade, her open side astern at
the diningroom barricaded, this hc-
ing removed soon after the. steamer
reached port, thc Princess Charlotte
came from the Clyde in 09 days, run-*
ntog at an economic speed ot 13
1 nots.' Calls were made at Tcncrifte,
Mcntevideo, Coronal and Callao for
cool, The voyage was not marked byj
much incident. Two strong gales
were encountered, one when nearing
Montevideo, the other when passing
into the Pacific from the Strait of
Magellan, and in these, one attended
■by choppy confused seas, thc other b;«
lcn$ Cape Horn seas, thc steamer
proved her excellent sea-going qualities. The barricading was not needed. No seas came on board. Thc
liner rode like a duel,.
Thc Princess Charlotte differs much
in appearance from tho Princess Victoria. She suggests thc Islander,
looked at by the bow. Sho- is superior to the ftne Princess' Victoria,
which after being the peer of inter-
port passenger steamers in.thc Facit
lie for live years must now give way
to her younger and better-dowered
sister. Tho reciprocating engines arc
of similar type, tut give higher
speed, t'..c accommodations are im-
provements on the excellent arrangements provided on the steamor now
in use, and there is a general sityneSf
tion ol solidity, ol substantial build.
The lines are good. As one enthusiastic shipping man tersely puts it:
"She's a steamship; yes, she's a Unit." That described the Princess
Charlotte thoroughly. The bow Is
very sharp, and the ctern suggests
that ot a magnificent tq.Vcdo boat
with the curved sternpost. which overhangs a balanced rudder of the latent type.
These are many particulars in
which the new Princess differs from
her older sister, the Princess Victoria Thc extra housework, extra
length and beam and additional accommodations, the greater stretch ot
promenade deck, wide and free, are
some of the differences. The bridge,
a solid-looking tcakwood affair, is.a
great change from the light open
rails ot the flying brijlge af the Princess Victoria. Fronting, thp pilot*
house is a very., powerful searchlight,
and this, and all the navigation appliances are of the latest improved
type. The manner in which sho answers i,et helm has provoked the admiration of all who have handled the
stcamre. Capt. Troop, her master
on the voyage, Capt. J. W„ Troup,
who brdught her from thc outer
wharf, and Capt. Buckman, tbe pilot, were loud in their praise of the
manner in winch the ship handled.
On her trials when thc steamer developed 21 knots' an hour without
difficulty in neutral water and with
a weight of 700 tons in- her, it was
demonstrated that the vessel could
turn completely in a minute and a
halt.
The description ol the interior accommodation of the steamer conveys
but a faint Idea of thc substantial
mnnntr in which the C. P. R. lias
prepared for patrons. The dining saloon, thoroughly furnished, spats 140
people, the observation room, smok-
ingroom and cabins are fitted elaborately, even electric heaters being placed in the cabins-de-liuxe, which are
furnished with four post brass beds
r.nd excellent furniture, with bathroom adjoining. The barber's shop
is spacious, and has adjoining a
bootblack staid; in'   tact,- every ar
rangement that can be suggested fori
the comfort of the traveller is apparent. A feature ot the Princess Charlotte Is tho second cabin saloon placed in the forward part of the passenger deck below the observation
room, where the Asiatic and Indian
travellers will he accommodated. The
equipment, furnishing and, general excellence of thc new steamer must be
seen, however, to be appreciated.
Leaving Glasgow on November 2nd
at 8 a. m, the start of the long voyage to Victoria was marked with
dirty, weather, and fresh breezes weie
experienced after the channel was
cleard next day, general eough seas
being encountered to Tennertte,
which port was iinched on November
7. After loading coal in the Azores
the steamer had good weather v.iti1.
when nearing Montevideo, a strong
gale was encountered. This was the
first experience with the steamer in
a heavy sea and the manner iu
which she acted aroused enthusiasm
on board. At Montevideo 7:98 tons
of coal was taken on board and two
days after arrival the steamer resumed bcr voyage on to the Straits
of Magellan, where the steamer anchored for the night at Puntas Arenas. At daylight on November 30
she started through the straits, hav
ijig clear but cold weather. Leaving
the straits to enter the Pacific at 3
a.'m. on December 1 a strong gale
with long Cape Horn seas was met.
The wind blew strong from thc south i
west, shitting to tbe northwest, and
the steamer labored in a heavy sea;
but she acted excellently, proving
herself a thorough oceangoing vessel. No water came on 'board. The
gale lasted 21 hours and from that
time no fnrthee incidents marked the
voyage until Coronet was reached on
December 5.
Alter takins, 400 tons ot coal thc
Princess started on December 6 at
2:30 p. m. for Callao, and had fine
weather until arrival at Callao' on
December 11. There delay was encountered in coaling. Fuel had to be
taken on board in the roadstead
from lighters and a heavy sea rolling
in made the work difflcuH. About
40O tons was loaded and the steamer
proceeded on December 14. From
the Peruvian port good weather ob-
t Vied; until Victoria was reached,
though from, the 26th heavy ccntused
seas, the legacy ol the recent gales,
were encountered, principally from thev
northwest and westward. On Sunday afternoon the vessel ran in close
to Point Reyes, where she squalled
and when north of Cape Blanco the
steamer Manning wae sighted. Cape
Flattery was reached on Tuesday
night and the vessel anchored at
William Head until daylight Wednesday.

School Board Meeting
"Withal that is the world's tenth
largest island, there is, perhaps, ho
one little body of land in the world
that offers so many unique points ol
interest to the traveler as doesi Newfoundland," a rctuin'ng traveler remarked recently.
To begin with, the northeasterly
point of the continent is here, in the
form of Cape Spear, where one is onl«
a matter of 1090 miles from Ireland.
The cape almost'forms' the step between the eld world and the new.
Then Newfoundland is unique in
that it was possessed of an extinct'
race of men—these, however, passing
out tnly.'so late.as 1823, when tbs
last Boethic, a woman, went the wa};
of the flesh. As in Australia, the
natives here have disappeared before
the white men. They were a branch
of thc great Algonquin family.
Then again, Newfoundland has its
interest because of the work, of one
Capt. Whittourne, mariner, who was
sent out by the British admiralty to
regulate the matters among the fish,
ing population, which had increased
marvcJoufJly. Whitbouri* wrote* a
book entitled "Westward Ho lor Av-
,ilon," now very' rare, but serving to
suggest the namo ot Kinpslcy's later
■ind world-famous volume.
No Britisi'i colony was ever so
harshly treated as this one. .Intact,
it has1 only been since 1913 that
anyone could erect a permanent hour 4
here without the consent of the Governor.
The interior of Newfoundland   today ic one huge, burnt-over forest, a
jungle of white masts, as it were—
covered with undergrowth and tumbled into all    conceivable    masses—
this as the result of the huge forest
lire sweeping almost completely across the island.

help to those who attended the serv-Jablc little trans-island railway today,

The regular meeting ot the school
board was held in Mr. John Stewart's office on Thursday evening'.
The minutes ol the former meeting
were read and approved.
Miss E. Cameron, ot Chemainus
Landing was appointed to the position on the teaching stall made vacant by thc resignation ot- Miss Bev-
eridge.j   ,
It was decided to advertise for
tenders for wood,
Reports were received tor the nast
month from the teachers, and were
found to be satisfactory.
The salaries ot the teachers and
other small hills were passed.
There was a large gatheriog at thc
Methodist church banquet New Years
evening, and it was a decided success. The tables, looked splendid and
an abundance of good tings were provided. ,The banquet began a few minutes after 5 o'clock andcontinucd until 7:30. A feeling of good-lcllow
ship prevailed and with good wishes
and handshaking and cheerful convcr-
saeion a pleasant time was spent..
Alter the banquet Mr. Wm. Ward
took the chair. Thc programme commenced by all the company joining
in a well-known hynn.
The chairman in his opening remarks wished all the company happiness and prosperity in thc New
Year. He then dwelt upon the signs
of progress in the community, and
said that he praised the mayor and
council for what they had accomplished during the year. He was not,
disposed to find fault,, but he thought
that something ought to be done in
the enforcement of our laws.
He then spoke of the signs ot progress in thc church nnd said that b
had tound by his own experience that
more real happiness was' to he loun
in striving after the higher things
than could be found in making this
world everything. Money and other
things were vci'y desirable but not
everything.
He said he was glad to see the excellent light in the church. It would
he such an improvement and a great
one a dime for bread and butter at
each meal, this whether he order it
or partake of it, or not.
In the taprooms ol St. John's wo
men serve as nartendcrs, and over
the saloon bar there is posted weekly a list ot all persons arrested for

of a heavy, fine.

Laughing slyly at the IDs and tollies, the joys and tridmphs, the hopes and ambitions, and the (cars and
regrets ot this tragic-comical world,
another old year has slipped around
the vomer ot time and taken his
place among the shadowy eternities.
It was as good as its predecessors,
no more cynical and just as pleasant;
generous with Its sunshine it tree
with its sorrows; planting as many
' flowers as it sowed thorns aad tares,
ahd it some of us breathe easier that
it is gone, others ot us will meet
the New Year with' tearful, fond
memories ot the old. Alter all,
looking over the shoulder, as we
speed along the high road ot duty
tiul purpose, i;t is well to rcn-emU'r
that the mind's eyo should never rest
upon thc dark places where regrets
Writhe and coil and grin hideous.
There is enough to occupy thought
without sending it along vain windings in search ol the irrevocable and
irretrievable.

Hints for the Home
THE COLOR SCHEME.
In deciding what color scheme to
adopt tor a room, the first thingjto
consider is firom which point of thc
compass it deceives its light. Thc
next is tihe "wood work—and lest its
size. It the wood work Is of hard
wood it in a measure settles thc
question, as tho wood work i3 the
key note to the whole. If it is to be
painted or stained, it can be painted
or stained to suit any scheme of color one wvshes.
A room lacing the north is, without
sunshine, and this lack ol sunlight
should be supplied artificially, by an
attendance ot yellow, or red. Light
a cold lightcoirring tronv the south is
said to 'be a cold light, and as blJc
is a cold, color,, it should never be
used in such a roomi The temperature ot such, a combination in a room
would seemingly tall some degrees,
upon cnteriag from a room rich in
color. Ot course, it wouhVnot actually, only in etlcct, and it tbe person
were ol a sensitive nature, \t would
have a corresponding depressing! effect, and make htm low spirited,
when too contrary would be the case
under different conditions. '
Blue can only be used In a room
that is flooded with sunshine. Greenj
can be used in a room lighted either
Iromthe north or south. In the former it should be rich and warm in
quality, and the sash curtains cou'<1

touch  of  red    should  be introduced of   spacEi  or     rathet o( inctmmg
somewhere, as the eontrast emphasizes the value of the preen.
As a rule the darkest colors are on
tl'.'.e lloor, and gradually lighten towards the ceiling. The hangings
should be a trifle darker than thc
walls, and the ceiling considerably
lighter than the walls.
Red seems to be universally used in
halls—as they are seldom lig'it, and
seem to require red to give a cheerful aspect. But it should be a brighti
and brilliant color, to overcome Uic
darkness of an uniighted hall. Terra
cotta it not deep enough and Ponriei-
ian and Indian reds arc not rich
enough.
Color has its influence in apparently incasing or diminishing the size

Hester Temple's fad—every one has
some fad—is boys. Any boy from two
lo fourteen interests' her, aud Prank
Kimball, aged thirteen, is her best
friend. Frank lives half a mile down
the road from Hester's. Frank's lad
is electrical knickknacks, of wlii.li his
little bedroom is full. You can't git
into it wittiout ringing an electric
bell.
Franki's litest acquisition is one of
thoso new short distance wireless
telegraphic machines. He has it, rigged in a lounging space on the top oi
the house, .where there arc chairs, a
table and a wicker sofa, all under an
awningj. Ho has learned to send messages to Hester Temple, half a mile
up the road, -who also has a machine
—he put it op for her—and she replies to them.
"My automobile will be here next
week. Father says so. It's a dandy,". Frank telegraphs. "What lovely' rides we shall have!" Hester replies. "Wo can run away together."
"And get married. Won't it be splendid?". "How old will you be when
I'm twenty-one?" "I'll be twenty-
eight." Tha.t won't be so much difference as .there is now, will it?"
No, it won't be very much." And
Hester smiles at the hoy's interest,
in the matter.

the wireless machine. He went up to
it aud rattled the key a bit. In, a
'moment ttave came a message, "is
that you, dear boy?" Davcnpoit replied that it was. "1 unuerstand
lhat your cousin has come up irom the
city." ''He has." "Is he nice!"
"JSico.docsa't express it; he's a jim
dandy." "Handsome?" "A perfect
Apoilyon.". "1 mean Apollo."
"On!"   "How long is he going   to
stay.'' "What makesyou take   so
inueh, interest in him?" "Don't be
jealous, dear; 1 won't desert you lor
any one elsv." There was a pause

old?" "Twenty-one." "Do you
know what I'm going to do?"
"What?" "I'm going to marry you
before that next birthday." If it
had been a telephone instead ot a
telegraph Clarence Davenport would
have heard a morfy laugh. What he
did hear was, "Very well; I'm agreeable.'' "Is it a promise?" "Certain
sure." "See that you don't go back
on it." j
"Frank," said Clarence a MMe later, "how* would you like to go to

The firemen's hall was not a success. Counter attractions kept many
away that otherwise would have been
present. .,
As advertised, on New Years evsj at
10:30, the drawing took place at P.
CI. Ncot's store. The store was
crowded and not a few were watching outside. Mr. T. ConwaJ drew
the ticket from the box, which was
No. 1105. This number won the dia-
mand ring, but thc owner was not
present. The beans were then counted, and numbered 2068, the holder ol
ticket No. H53 guessed 2067, only
one from the correct number, and
this won the watch. The beans were
carefully and accurately counted by
Messrs. J. Muir and B. McKelvie before the entire gathering. Holders
of these numbers will kindly call and
get their presents.

As usual, the enemies of football
are trying to make capital out of the
fatalities of the season in progress.
But, considering the countless thousands engaged in the sport, the list,
however lamentable, is far from terrifying,. To those accustomed to
reckon mortality risks it is astonish?
ingly brief. I' the deaths hid aaur-
rel in any sport or rccreaibn in
which the danger is less obvious to
the    sensitive   eye—as for example,

traveling or swimming—they would
scarcely have caused comment; Seme
years ago, when nn eastern college
taculty wae discouraging football, a
clear-neadcd undergraduate compiled
a list showing that the accidents on
the football lield were exceeded by
those due to slipping on the icy
walkB of the college,yard. The waliis
continued to be slippery. As far as
this year's list of football fatalities
shows anything it shows that the
danger is not in the case of the great
games, where the bruta.lity seems to
reach the maximum, 'Wit in the minor games. The obvious moral is not
that the game should, be abolished,
but that the players should be carefully se.ected and trained. One danger there is, howeverj in football as
in other contests requiring great
physical effort and endurance, and It
is characteristic that the reformers
have ignored it. This is the danger
that comes in the after lite of the
athlete. The life of business and the
professions is sedentary in the main,
and gives no scope to the vital organs as developed on flc'jds and river;
and Nature abhors useless tissue as
she is said to a'bhor a vacuum.
The overdeveloped Mart, lungs and
muscles degenerate in inactivity, and
offer easy lodgment to disease—consumption, typhoid, heart degeneration.
