Crop Report.
London, Dec. 18.—Lord Kelvin, the
famous scientist, who has been dangerously i'.l lor some time, is sinking.
Saskatoon, Dec. 18.—The city is
now connected with the C. P. R. tin
tirst train having arrived last night
Irom tlie East over the Pheasant Hills
branch.
Winnipeg, Dec. 18 —A decision has
been reached by the Arbitration
Board, which is discussing the dim
onlty between the carmen and the
C. P. R. While the decision is a good
one, the only thing tbat remains to
be done is to word it properly.
Salem, Ore., Dec. 18.—While dreaming he was cutting his throat, William
Thome last night actually took a
raior and severed several large veins
and his windpipe.
Winnipeg, Dec. "18.-Mr. F. T
Griffin, C. P. R. land commission*!,

CANADA'S CLIMATE
Perfect Summer and Autumn
, Weather
Ottawa, December 17,—In an address before the Canadian Club oo
Saturday, Hr. R. F. Stop rt, director
ol the meteorological offices, Toronto,
gsve a comprehensive description of
the climate ol Canada. He laid that
while European! thought Canada was
a northerly country, Ottawa wai
further south than Venice; Toronto
wai 550 milei south of London, and
Winnipeg about 100. The mildest
winter! in Canada were in Southern
Alberta. Of the country lying between Lakei Athabasca snd Slave and
Hudson Bay, Mr. Stupart was dubious
si to whether it would ever be used tor
sgricultural purpose!. At Fort
Churchill the mean temperature o
June was no higher than tbat of Mac'
Ibod for April, and the mean lor July
was not ss high as on Mackenzie river
at the Arctic Circle.
Among other items in the address
were statements that one inch of rain
means 72,000 torn per square mile.
All Cauada was favored with more
sunshine than any portion ol Great
Britain, Germany, Holland or" Northern France. The Summer temperature per centage ol the Dominion
wss between 51 and 59 degrees, while
louthermost England it was generally
between 35 and 46, Tbe salient
feature ol Canada's climate, Mr. Stupart said, was not the oold of winter,
but the perfection of ber Hummer and
Autumn,
UNEMPLOYED RELIEF
Provincial Government to Commence Road Work at Pt. Grey
Victoria, Dec. 17.—Instructions
have been issued by the Provincial
government to have work started on
the rmidway through the lands at
Point Ur.-y. Orders were issued to
Engine, "■ O bii at- Vanoouver last
evening. in.'him tn start work
at once. In this way it is thought
ihat the unemployed ol Vancouver,
the plight ol whom was placed before
he government, will be remedied
Work will be paid for at the rste ol 20
■ents per hour, and with work provid
d by the eity it is thought all will be
cared for.
Throughout the interior country
ihere ere large numlera ol unemployed and the die tress is even greater
ban on the coast. Now is the time
tor the government to get in and
employ these men on the const ruction
it the Columbia River Bridge al Rev
elstoke, whicli  will  afford   relief  to
many  who are    absolutely   unable,
though willing to And employment.
JAP IMMIGRATION
Minister  Lemieux Concludes
Tokio, Deo. 17 —Minister of Labor
Lemieux was the guest of honor at a
farewell banquet at.ended by 300 leading citizens and ollicers, including foreign minister Hayasbi and British
Ambassador Sir Claude Maedonald,
last Monday.
The negotiations with the -l.pt.nese
government have been c..i.eluded
without a formal agreement or ex-
change of memoranda, but itith an
understanding similar to thnt between
Japan and the United States.
Some of the papers state that regulations will be enforced restricting tlie
emigration from Japan ol so-called
student laborers, while others are ol
the opinion that the announcement
of restricted control ol emigration on
the part of Japan is assured.
MURDERER HANGED
Penalty  Paid   for   Hideous
Crime,
Hong Kong papers contain an account ol the hanging ol W. H. Adsetts
for tbe murder ol Gertrude Dayton,
whose boiiy he placed in a trunk and
endeavord to ship it to Victoria on
tbe steamer Montesgle. Blood on tbe
outside ol the trunk caused the quart
ennaster to open it before the veesel
sailed.
Adsetts walked calmly to the icaf.
fold, showing no trace'of (ear. His
mind, it is said, appeared to. be unconscious of all things earthly, or, as
another put it, as il he were in a sort
of stupor. The execution wai managed without the slightest awk
wardness.
GOVERNMENT CONTROL
Provincial Government to Ap-
point City Commissioners.
Vancouvor, Dec. 17 —That the provincial government will extend iti
propoied amendments to the liquor
license lews so that in future all
license commissioner! in tbe cities
will be appointed by tbe government
instead ol bslf being appointive and
hall elective, is the rather startling
rumor that has tiavelled among those
most interested within the past lew
days. Attorney-General Bowser ia out
of the city, having lelt on a holiday
trip to California, and official confirmation oi the story can not be obtain
ed, Those best sble lo ipesk, how.
ever, state tbat tbe proposal ii under
ooniiderstion, snd thst considerable
pressure ii being brought to bear to
have tbe change made.
It hit alresdy been snnouoced thai
in the near luture the control of licenses in tbe rursl munioipslities will
be taken Irom lbs municipal authorities snd vested in the provinoisl
police, s move thst meet! with general approval. The propoied change in
the cities, however, is a very different
matter snd there ii certain tti be a
norm ol opposition if any definite
aotion ii taken.
ARSON AND MURDER
Startling Discovery Made by
Winnipeg Police.
Winnipeg, Dec. 11.—Murder and
robbery is the startling revelation
made by an investigation into the
early morning lire on Friday last, in
which the burned bodies ol Luke Wing
and Lea Chow were found.
There is not the slightest doubt now
tbat thc fire was the work of a murderer and incendiary and examination
ol the bodies ol the dead men shows
that both were brutally battered iibiut
the head with a blunt instrument of
some kind.
All our silver plated ware ii guaranteed and we atand behind it.—Law

Declines Third Term
Washington, Dec 17.—President
Roosevelt will not be a candidate for a
third term. All doubt on thii point
hai been dispelled by an authoritative
statement li.m the White House that
Roosevelt still adheres to the declaration ot renunoiation made on the
night of tbe eleotion three yean ago.
In the statement which was issued
last night President Roosevelt eayi he
hai not changed and shall not change
the decision delivered to the American
people in 1904.

London, Dec, 17—John Burni, M,

PINTSCH GAS USED
R.o More Acetyline on C. P. R.
Trains.
Acetyline gas was used for the last
time on passenger trams of the Canadian Pacific Railway ou Monday. On
a number oi the trains tbe change
from acetyline to Pintsch gai has
already been made and the necessary
alterations were completed that night.
The use ol the discarded illuminant
was favored by many railway men and
it was strenuously maintained bv
them that with proper care there was
nothing more to be leared in connection with its use than any other
illuminating matter, Aotion wae
taken, however, some months ago by
tl.e railway commis*if». in connection
with the subject, and the order was
issued that tbe railway companies
must give up the use ol acetyline on
all trains. Tbe management of tbe
railways ..t once arranged accordingly
The work has now been completed and
Pintsch gas will be in use on all trains
alter this date.
The cost of making the change ii
cot large.
Pintsch gas has been in use on
railways ol continental Europe and
the United States for many years.

Prominent King's Counsel Reviews the Situation.
Addressing tbe Cansdian, club In
Ottswa last week on ths luture ol
Causda, J, S. Ewsrt, K.C., urged thst
the present position ol lubordinstion
is one thst csnnot last forever. Canada muit some day rise to the lull
dignity ol nationhood, and either
alone, or in some partnenhip, have
and eiercise the bigheit powers of
government.
Tbe Dominion would moet probably
bc one ol the lollowing five:
1. Union with United Statei.
2. Independent republic.
3. Union with United Kingdom.
4. An independent monarchy, with
Canadian king aid (|>.een.
m&. Independent moarchy with the*
same sovereign ai the United Kingdom.
In Mr. Ewart'i opinion the future
ol Canada would seemingly be a m»
tionhood, sell-control, political equsl-
ity with the United Kingdom instead
ol lubordinstion snd subserviency to
ths colonial office.
"II." concluded Mr. Ewsrt, "thii be
our future, then we will yet reach the
goal simed at by the late Sir John A.
Maedonald. We shall get a greal
Britiih monarchy in connection with
the British empire snd under the
Britiih king, rocognining tbe sovereign
of Gnat Britain ss iU sole and only

A MERRY CHRISTMAS.
At thii lestive sssson of ths yesr
with sll its pleasant association it
would be amisi to refrain irom mingling in the sentiment of the emotional
feelings which fill each snd every
heart in thii hsppy community. We
fully believe thst the heavenly message eaiociated with this leason "Peace
on ssrth, good will toward men," contains the essence ol sll our hopes snd
men at this time try to express it in
tbeir own little way by shewing how
much more blessed it is to give than
receive. Long may Chriitmsi be celebrated snd the message it brings to
men remembered. Petty jealousy and
personal spite ihould be forgotten at
thii time and s genisl feeling of friendship be established among ui. This
ii a hippy time in the truer sense snd
it ii in io conventions! or ordinsry
manner thst tbe Mail-Heuaiji wiihei
sll its readars in Canada, England,
United Ststes, snd Europe "A Merry
Christmas."
A WISE DECISION.
Tbe two bylswi now being advertised snd submitted to the people will
receive either tbeir endorsement or
(ejection at the handi ol tbe citiieni
on Friday neit. Tbe one lor the railing ol In.,di to erect a city, jail, the
Other to cover the overdrtlt st the
Motions Bsnk which bn accumulated
yesr by year through municipal improvement work being paid for Irom
tbs wrong source snd by the bad
msnsgement ol civic finances. We do
not look so much at the pait, for tbat
can never be recalled, and no matter
how injudioious and wrongly baied
bas been the financial policy ol the
previous councils, we cannot do sny
good by putting (resh obstacles in ths
wsy ol clearing the city of debt, by
dwelling on Ibe (ailing! of past admin-
istrstioD. Now that the blunders
have been made, perbsps with Ibe belt
intention of those who imagined they
were doing what wai right, there ii no
uss ol harping on them and the sooner
tbe city gets herself clear ol debt the
better (or tbs present and Inture condition of tbii community. Some have
urged that tbe proceeds Irom the
water snd light plsnt be put to paying
off tbe overdrslt but thst would, be*
sides being impracticable and unwise,
be a decidedly unlair and injudicious

POLICE PROTECTION.
Our attention hai been called to the
continual noise and disturbance during performances in the opera house,
which has the eflect of not only being
a distinct annoyance to those of our
citizens who do attend that place of
amusement but also of keeping others
away who would otherwise go. No
one suffers from tbis nuiiance as much
ai the opera house management
themselves and it would be to their
own interests to study this part of
their business a little more closely.
The owners of tbe opera liouse are
bound to supply their own police and
police protection and this has not been
done, hence the unseemly conduct in
the galleries. Smoking too is invariably practiced and this besides being
a nuisance and annoyance to others iB
dangerous in the extreme and should
be severely dealt with by those in
authority. We would advise therefore
that the management take measures
to in luture employ special police, as
the bylawi demand, who will keep
order in tbe galleries and mcidently
protect the public; if this is done and
the unruly aud objectionable element
summarily removed we venture to
assert tbat the businesi of the bouse
will increase and receive far larger
patronage,

CORRESPONDENCE
Editor M.ii.-Itifiu....,
Sir : Is it s fsct thst the citizens
sre expected to vote on a bylaw in
two dayi from date for the borrowing
of money to pay up a debt incurred
by previous and pressnt city councils,
after having just paid into the city
treasury the limit oi taxation, without
the formality ol a public meeting
where reasons may be rendered why
we are in debt and why we ihould go
into debt to get out oi debt and borrow
one dollar bearing interest to pay
back ninety cents ? Here, Mr. Editor,
is, I think, lomething to think about.

Professor McEwen, the great magician, gave his, final performance in
ths opera house last night commencing with some interesting and scien-
tilic tests ol thought and mind,
reading, finding articles hidden in the
hall by the aid ot the concentrated
thought of those who assisted him.
Moving piotures aud vaudeville sele.
tioni ol a laughable character tided in
the intervals. Hypnotism concluded
his programme, the many tests
applied being ol a humorous nature
causing endless merriment. On
Monday night Professor McEwen
gave an exhibition of extreme interest
T, W, Baiu, chief of police, and Utlicer
Terry, in tbe presence of several ol
the citizens, on the stage locked 13
pairs ol handcuffs and leg irons on
the profeiaor, vouching for the fact
lhat be was seoured hand and foot
Alter a few minutes inside a cabinet
where outside aid was impossible
McEwen (reed himself Irom all his
fetters and reappeared before tbe
public with the gyves in a heap on Ins
irm. Thia test is conclusive of the
skill snd ability ol McEwen in magic
and conjuring. Florence McEwen
bas charmed her audience during h«r
appearance here by her dainty and
charming songs.
