Ixjoklcg trim and taut ln every respect the ateam trawler Roman came
up river yesterday morning from
Seattle claiming tbe honor of being
the drst halibut steamer to be equipped with oil burning apparatus.
During the past few months the
Roman has been off her usual run to
the teaks owing to the scarcity ot the
Ssh and also on account of the usual
incJement weather which handicaps
the crew and makes it expensive both
to lhe owners and to the crew ln
their search for the halibut
This gave her owners time to refit
���genes-ally and Install a system of oil
burners wblch was done on the Esqui-
matt -ways.
ln an interview with Mr. Cassady,
���manager of the Columbia Cold Storage Company. Captain H. Fredreck-
nson, of the Roman, and Mr. Dan E.
'Breckson, representing the firm hand-
ting tbe Doll system of oil burning
apparatus, the News was able to glean
the facts ln connection wWh' the boat
and the changes that have been made
(during the past few months.
Exit All Dirt
Perhaps one of the most Important
features connected wltb the new ap
;puratus will be the absence of any
gr.tne or dust which usually settles
on tbe deck of a fishing trawler when
burning coal, and Instead of thai saying on board ship "Wipe your shoes
when coming out of the engine room"
it will now be Just the opposite for
the use of tbe crude oil eliminates all
signs of disorder and dirt and the
engineer is planning to lay oilcloth
nu tbe floor of his sanctum.
The Roman left Victoria on Saturday morning for Seattle on her trial
trip and an hour after leaving everything was working to pertoeMoa. not
a single change being made to the
new maobtnery. While *�� 9gxtma eeveral new dories wens ta**e ejkoarC
whieh had been shipped ahraaf the
country from Boston.
Her arrival ln the Sound City -created no little furore, for Several halibut
trawlers besides hiiieimai -gasdline
boats engaged In the halibut trade
make their headquarters there, and
the fact that the Roman la -he llrst

as a result of tbe heavy rains.
The slide took place near Ellwood

Councillors Wlll Now Represent Dls
trlcts They Do Not Reside In-
Peculiar Situation.
Edmonds, Feb. 17.���One of the big
gest changes possible as to the location of the present six wards In Burnaby was made by the council this
afternoon, which means that several
of the councillors now find themselves
looking after districts entirely apart
from the residents who elected them.
This applies especially in the case
of Councillor Coldicutt who was
elected from East Burnaby, but who
Will now look after an Immense dis-
irlct to the northeast of his particular
camping ground, having' as its bord
ers Burrard inlet on the north, New
Westminster city limits and tbe North
road on the east, and taking a big
slice in the territory formerly covered
by Fau Vel.
East Burnaby Is now included with
Edmonds in one district forming ward
two and joining ward three at Cumberland road, stretching around tbe
southern shores of Burnaby lake. This
will make it one of the most populous
districts in the whole of tbe municipality.
Less for MacDonald.
Ward five in northwest Burnaby Is
the least affected.'Councillor MacDonald having a smaller area to cover
than heretofore.
This was the second debate on the
question, Councillor Fau Vel, of
North Burnaby, having brought up the
matter a week previously, stating then
that the representatives from the
ncrth find themselves looking after
far too much territory in comparison
with the assessed valuation, j He stated that wards four and five had but
$2,000,000 less on tbe assessment rolls
than the whole' of the other four
wards, while the total assessed value

Break in 14-Inch Main.
Alderman Bryson drew attention to
break ln the 14-inch main that supplied the upper reservoir with water,
reported to him this afternoon by the
man ln charge. He was not prepared
to say how serious the break was. The
water was shut off at 3 o'clock by the
official in charge. There were plenty
of men working there. Alderman
Bryson hoped the break would be repaired by the morning.
The mayor asked If there was a
slide and Alderman Bryson stated
that there was a slide half way between Coqultlam Junction a^d the
lake, a slide of trees and snow which
had  no doubt taken away the  pipe.
Alderman Jardine asked If there
was no ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
water reservoir from the 14-inch main,
he understood there was to be a connection with the 25-inch main and that
they need not fear any further shortage of water.

The development of the port of New Westminster, in
so far as the city's waterfront is concerned, is now happily
assured, and it is equally certain that with the establishment of the Harbor Commission there will be evolved a
���great Fraser harbor which will take rank with the great
shipping centres of the world.
This to a very great extent has been made possible by
the stand taken by the electorate last June: it was for this
that ex-Mayor Lee, backed by an efficient council and
aided by the co-operation of the city's parliamentary representatives, had long becn working, and it was for this
that the columns of the press contained a warning that
the city then stood at the parting of the ways. Westminster chose aright.
It is hard to obtain a clear view of events when they
-���pre actually happening. Therein lies the advantage of
history, and we in Westminster as in all Canada are making history and making it very fast. We have said that
development means business. Only last week Premier
McBride in a masterly speech outlined some of the myriad
advantages which would accrue to the Pacific coast of
Canada from the opening of the Panama canal. This con
cerns the province as a whole, and is worthy of the earnest
attention of all. But the Panama is as yet scarcely come
home to men's minds, but, just as its influence will accelerate business throughout the province so through the
large undertakings which we see goine: on around us here
increased business of a solid nature will develop���is indeed
already beginning to develop.
Sir Richard McBride, in the speech above referred to
spoke upon the impetus that would be given to the lumber trade, an industry in which we as a city are intimately
interested. Many causes have contributed to-make the
lumber trade outlook for 1913 the rosiest that has beer;
experienced for some time���this apart from the proposed
increase in stumpage royalties.
Evidences of this are to hand in the more'frequent appearance of ships loading big cargoes for oversea ports
and in the fact that prices are already averaging from
one and a half to two dollars per thousand feet in advance
of those of last year.   If we can now ship lumber to Nova
On Feb. 18, 1800, the case of a
:,csro, "Itobin," who was claimed as
a -slave by a gentleman named James
'���"r:'.ipr. came up at Montreal before
the full Court of King's Bench, which
liectiicd that the negro should go free.
Twice before, in the year 1798, Chief
mtlce Sir James Monk had ordered
the release of colored women who had
escaped from their mistresses and had
been recaptured, and on the second
occasion the Chief Justice had stated
his belief that "slavery was ended
in Canada. Probably he grounded
this judgment, In part at least, on the
decision of Lord Mansfield ln freeing
the negro "Somersett," who had been
brought from Jamaica to England, but
the holders of slaves, who were chiefly
i-enident in the cities of Quebec and
Montreal, tried to get an act passed
to enable them to keep their human
- The country members of the Assembly, few of whom held slaves did
not support them in this effort, thus
It failed, and the decision of the court
in the "Robin" case did not bring the

More Canadian and
British Films Needed

into operation in itritish Columbia
shortly, the following article from the
Montreal Witness, is of Interest:

of this to become imbued with certain
American ideas was the opinions of
the executive branch of tbe Overseas
Club, as expressed at a general meeting uf the body held Feb. 6.
Anti-Canadian ln spirit dangerous
to the youth of the country, and lowering to the dignity, and offensive to

Glad of the Censorship.
Touching on the matter of censorship, the committee, of tbe club expressed the unanimous opinion that effective censorship was most necessary.
When it was considered that In -Canada'there were over 2000 moving picture theatres and that over X'iO.Oou.uuO
was annually spent on this form of
amusement In which 190.000.000 people participated ln the course or a
year, they considered that the most
careful censorship was necessary.
Pictures reflecting on the honor of
the soveregn, or ridiculing him, also
ridiculing the flag, defensive forces,
or ssoverelgns, or armies of other
countries were strongly condemned.
��� mrt the committee hoped that these
things would be taken Into consideration by the censors.
When considering this important
branch of the question, the committee
agreed to and forwarded a resolution
thanking Sir Isomer Gouin, Premier of
Quebec, for tbe action recently taken
by his government in appointing a
board of censors for this province.
They respectfully urge upon the

A suggestion that measure be taken
to stimulate imperial opinion in the
provinces of the Dominion met with
great approval ty the members div--*-)-
ent, and tho club considered that the
of entertainment can be placed under
a strong but sympathetic control, so
that the beet moral  and  educational
results may be achieved.
Standard  Good  One.
The general survey of the committee makes   more   that   a few points
which are of Interest to alL   Following ar* the conclusions:
"The standard of subjects dealt
with by tho American companies is, |
undoubtedly, a good one and meets'
tho general idea of what should be
thown. The committee would also
like to emphasize the fact that they
have no inclination to boycott or cavil
it the display of pictures dealing with
'he United States or any other foreign
"We recognize fully that the movements of the United States president
in his official capacity, the navat and
military progress, the educational,
philanthropic, scientific and sporting
events of the United States aro of interest to American citizens resident
among us, and are to Bonje extent of
international importance.
"On the other hand, however, It
must also be borne In mind that citizens of the empire, either bom or resident in the Dominion, would also welcome the opportunity of witnessing
representation of the movements of
His Majesty King George and Queen
Mary, incidents In the history life and
development cf the Imperial navy, the
training of the imperial army and incidents relating to the history and
everyday work of men whose recordB
have made so glorious many pages of
Imperial history, together with plc-
ures of hlftoric and current events
in Great Britain and the other Overseas Dominions, and also other great
world events of interest to the whole
"As we turn to Canada herself, the
should be some exhibition cf Canadian history, life and Institutions, and
also of the marvelous Industrial and
��ngineerlng enterprises that are
springing up In varlouB parts of the
Dominion, of which all Canadians are
so justly proud.
"These are the views which have
been created hy a careful study of
this Important question, and the committee would most strongly urge upon the British and Canadian film
manufacturers seriously to consider
the position of affairs and to take
steps to get Into touch with thoBe In
the picture business without further
delay so, as to meet the urgent requirements of the situation.
"It Is also suggested that measures
be taken to stimulate Imperial opinion in the provinces of the Dominion
for the purpose of demanding that the
ideas and wishes of the publlc on- this
subject should receive full consideration from the moving picture managers, and that subjects of patriotic interest occurring in various parts of
that widely-spread empire, of which
we are proud to be citizens, should nol
continue to be neglected, as they arc
at the present time."

(By John H. Sprott, Senior Road Superintendent, Delta District)
At tho convention of Road Superintendents at Vicloria, on Friday, a
most Intitesting and valuable paper
wai contributed to the proceedings
by Mr. John H. Sprott. senior road
-superintendent of Delta dlatrlct and
the oldeat superintendent in Britiah
t tlumb a. L
In the unfortunate absence of Mr.
Sprott, through lllnem, the paper waa
read by a delegate. It la as follows:
"I have boen requested to prepare
a sketch cf conditions as they extat-
- eA thirty-five years ago, and wttlt that
end In view I wlll endeavor to dca
.ciibe them aa briefly and correctly
as possible, and crave your Indulgence
to overlook all shortcomings, on my
part, for 1 can assure the gentlemen

appointed road superintendent tar

oetved all my Insructions from the
r vernment a-ent, resident at New
-Wwrtmlnster. I had, approximately 70
miles of road and about 20 miles of
iTalis to look after and repair, as boat
t could, with tbe appliances then available, and the very limited amounts
at my disposal, which were as follow*

Now, before proceeding further with
my paper, I would first like to give
my more modern and up-to-date bro-
iher superintendents a description of
���the early day road camp equipment
and attendant conditions existing during tbe seventies.   To begin with, the
working  tools, or plant,  If you  will,

plentiful, but when required tor road

Dynamite IMkasw.
I must not omit to remark tbat dynamite and stumping powder were then
an unknown quantity., consequently
for the removal of mote and stumps
tho inatock, crosscut and axe played
the most Important part; of course,
aa few of the euan-p* were grubbed
out as could possibly ��e helped and
were mostly close cut and the road
graded over tbem. and wherever lai-fee

Vancouver at Ihlt dste had' no existence, and there were very few pec-

Delgbton House, which ttood on the

The townslte of Granville occupied
about 8 or 10 acres, which had been
partially cleared except that most of
the stumps remained, while all around
was notblng but the virgin forest.
Upon this clearing then stood tbe village of Granville or Gastown, tbe
aforesaid Delghton House, a sal-Dot.
just on the edge of tbe forest, known
at "the hole In the wall," a small general store kept by Portuguese Joe,
Black's butcher thop and private
dwelling, four other private houses, a
constable's residence and lockup, or
"Jail," as tt was called, added to these
about fifty or sixty Indian and Kanaka .shacks, of different shapes and
sizes, which constituted-tbo make-up
of the place at this time, I must not
omit to mention that the lockup or

Harry Payne Whitney's string won

total winnings amounted to only a

That tue rapid advance of the cadet
movement in our schools Is in the
opinion of many of those who have
Btudied the question deeply In all its
aspects an indication that universal
military service will be established in
Canada In the not far distant future, Is
quite generally known. And there is
ample ground for this belief.
Every issue of the Militia General
Orders records the establishment of
cadet corps at schools in all parts of
the Dominion, rural and urban, where
previously the movement was either
practically unknown or regarded with
disfavor. ThiB is a significant fact. It
shows that the men in charge of the
education and training of boys, men
of high ideals who have a large share
in the moulding of the characters of
Canada's future citizens, recognize in
the cadet movement a means of developing the physical, moral, and, in
fact, the l-mellectual side of a boy's
Everywhere   Success.
The result is that It has been enthusiastically adopted practically everywhere lt had been Introduced. Is not
the fact that Canada's foremost educationists are in favor of military
training ln Itself enough to silence the
carping criticism of narrow-minded
It has been proven that military
training has a remarkable effect in
moulding the character of the average youth. In Australia, where tbe
universal system is in operation, the
training is doing an immensity of
good. There is more courtesy in the
streets, better mannerB, and the drill
has transformed a lot of ���hoodlums into
a fine body of young men. In Germany, the traveler is at once Impressed with the bearing of the male population at large.
He is accorded the moEt courteous
treatment by all classes, and If he
happens In a crowd he can not help
noticing the lack of disorder or confusion. The men instinctively fall into line. A comprehensive training
scheme is in force bt Germany.
Switzerland is another Instance of
the effectiveness of a national training scheme for, though only a very
small nation, she can at a few hours'
notice muster an efficient fighting
force of 550,000 men.
Australia's System.
As a definite example of the practicability of universal military training for boys, however, perhaps Australia's system is the best. Universal
training in Australia is not conscription and does not in any way resemble
the military service of Germany,
France, or other continental countries.
The actual training is on the same
lines as that of our own militia.    It j
is  carried  out at night   drills   after |
working    hours,   on   Saturday   afternoons  and  at a  Bhort annual  camp,
the  most  important  difference  being I
that, all must serve alike and not only
Che patriotic few who volunteer their i
services.    Personal exemption is given ;
|to those who are physically  unfit, to j
j theological students and to those who ;
I are'not of European extraction.    Men!
with    conscientious    scruples   against;
i war are permitted to serve in hospital;
'or in some other non-combatant capao- j
! ity.
Regarding   the   Willingness   of  the
honestly placed before the people and
that they should he given an opportunity to record their opinion at the
polls. If this were done 1 have no
hesitation in Baying that, in view of
the advancing interest in cadet work,
Australia's syBtem, modified to suit
local conditions, would he endorsed
by the Canadian people.���C. B. T��� in

Liverpool, Feb. 17.���The death of
Mr. Henry Hosker at the age of seventy-nine at the residence of Mb son-
in-law and daughter, Romley street
Walton, removes another link of the
chain connecting the present with the
stirring times,of the Crimean War and
tbe Indian Mutiny.
Mr. Hosker had altogether over 21
years' army service, the latter portion of which was passed In the 11th
Hussars, Which hc left with the rank
of sergeant
He was the possessor of the long-
service medal, the Turkish medal, and
Sebastopol medal.
Since leaving the army he had
worked Industriously in two or three
forms of employment, including that
ot timekeeper for some 13 years ln
Birkenhead and that of coachman for
10 years in Liverpool. He had been
in failing health for aome time past,

Alexandria, Egypt, Feb. 17���Prince
Aziz Hassan, a cousin of the Khedive
of Egypt, who was supposed to have
been court-martialed and executed by
a firing squad at Constantinople for
showing the white feather at the battle of Klrk-Killsseh, arrived here yesterday on board the French steamer
Cordllloc. He boarded the vessel at
one of the ports of Asia Minor where
she called on her way from Marseilles.
Prince Aziz Hassen was in command of the Turkish cavalry at Klrk-
Killsseh, and it was Eaid he was responsible for the panic which set in
among the Turkish troops.
Mahmoud Mukhtar PaBha tried to
stop the flight from the battlefield by
shooting several soldiers with his revolver, but without avail.
Prince Aziz was alleged to be among
the first to flee.
Paris, Feb. 17.���A former missionary
named Henry Bunnoust and hla wife
were arrested and held tonight on a
charge of having obtained control of
and misappropriated $400,000 belonging to a young matron named Jusse-
rand. #
Mme. JtiBserand told a remarkable
story to the magistrate. She said that
Bunnoust made the acquaintance of
her parents a few years ago and soon
gained extraordinary Influence over
them, and induced them to confide her
to his care,
Bunnoust then, she charged, succeeded In estranging her from her
parents by circulating malicious reports concerning her character. These
reports, Mme. Jusserand Bald, also
caused the death of her mother.
At her death, howver, the mother
left her daughter $1,000,000, of which
Mme. Jusserand said Bunnoust
through coercion obtained control and
misappropriated $400,000. The young
woman declared that eventually she
escaped from Bunnoust and married
a stone mason named Jusserand, who,
hearing her story, communiciated with
the authorities.
The magistrate after hearing the
explanation of Bunnoust and his wife
as to how they were able to buy a
large chateau in the country and also
keep an establishment ln Paris, not
deeming it satisfactory, signed an order committing the couple for a further Investigation.

that since the passage of the Universal Training Law in 1909 the govern-1
ment of the Commonwealth, which has
changed since that year, has had no
occaalon to consider tlie repealing of j
the measure.    In fact, the Labor Government   (the   Opposition    when    the j
measure was passed), has seen fit to
make   several   strengthening   amend-1
The    question    has    always   been |
treated as a non-party  iBBUe.    Is not j
such unanimity ol Australia's legisla-1
tors an  Index of the  feeling   of her ���
people?    When thc time comes might
not a similar scheme be Introduced in
Canada with resultB us effective?
An    Objection.
An idea prevalent among certain
seti ions of society Is that the Introduction of such a measure would encourage a bellicose Bpirlt In the country. For a reijjj to this we can do no
better than refer to Lord Roberts'
famous Bpeech at Norwich, last September, when hi1 said: "If every family had some of Its members in a position to be called out for tho defence
of their country, surely it would have
the effect Of making the country very
careful to do nothing to provoke war
Moreover, the discipline and habits
of order, punctuality and obedience Inculcated by military training would go
a long way towards making our youth
useful citizens, and towards fitting
them for honorable and prosperous
A question frequently asked In connection with this matter Is, "ls universal military training Decenary In
order to preserve the Integrity of the
British Empire?" I^ord Roberts, Lord
Curzon, and many other authorities
havo answered this question in the affirmative. It Is pointed out that war
conditions have changed, and that
very few people have any Idea of what
Is demanded of soldlerB under the conditions of modern warfare.
ThlB Is due to the Introduction of
long-range rifles. Where ln the old
days filing took place at. two or three
hundred yards, under the modern conditions the-range would be reckoned
at from one thousand to two thousand
yards. Officers get separated from
their men and each man has to act
more or less on his own Initiative. I
point this out merely to Illustrate the
necessity of adequate training in the
event of war.
Assuming that universal military
training would not develop a spirit of
aggressiveness or ill-feeling towardB
other nations, and there ls good
ground for such assumption, even
those opposed to militarism will admit that It would be beneficial to the
youth of the country.
Therefore 1 submit that within the
next few years the question should bo

Rome, Feb. 17.���The white slave
question was brought up In the Cham
ber of Deputies today. Deputy Rlcclo
made an Interpellation on the matter,
and Blgnor Dlscalea, the Under-Secretary for the Foreign Office, In reply, explained tbe measures which
bad recently been adopted by tbe .government.
He said that passports are now denied to minors who are now allowed
to cross the frontier, where tho po
lice surveillance has been doubled,
Unfortunately, however, the Under-
Secretary said, the municipal authorities do not co-operate with thc police,
but good results have already been obtained.
He added that the government now
proposed to Increase the staff of thc
Emigration Bureau with the object
of conducting a more rigorous surveillance aboard Immigrant ships.
D*puty Rlcclo did not appear to be
satisfied. He told of cases of Italian
emigrants to Southern France selling
their daughters for $20 or $30, and
urged the government to Intervene.
The Under-Secretary* for tho Interior, in reply to this, assured the deputy tbat the government was determined to stamp out this practice.
