stabbed to death on Tuesday morning on the Great Northern tracks ln
Burnaby, returned an open verdict
without making any reference to the
accused Chinaman, Yang Yat, who Is
alleged to have used a pair of scissors
on the deceased. ,<
Thc verdict of the Jury was that

Walker Is Surprised.
"I am surprised," said Mr. Walker,
"that be should liken me to a maa

edge of public affairs. Reeve Weart
stepped into office with no experi-
ence. I did work for a pittance aa
clerk of the municipality and I say
I have a knowledge of public affaira
and for thirty years have bad experience with municipal Work."
Mr. Walker went on to explain Ute
C. K. R. franchise tangle, outlining
the progress of the work since 190*
when he was clerk of Burnaby.
Since the recent adverse decision
against Burnaby handed down by Mr.
Justice Murphy a few weeks ago, the
speaker thought the time had coma
when another referendum should be
submitted to the electorate.
"I will go further." he stated, "and
say let us approach the B. C. B. B.

In the municipality. If elected, and he
felt very confident of being ao, he
would work for the ward first and
tbe rest of the municipality afterwards.
Mr. George H. Leaf, having called
the meeting, was given an extra five
minutes, making twenty minutes in
ail. He had no promises to hand out
and no past political record. Ue
favored the Joint aewerage scheme as
he felt the present growth of the
eastern section demands It.
The day labor scheme could not be
bettered and if elected Mr. Leaf
would advocate a minimum wage of
13 for eight hours work. He favored
a franchise with the B. C. E. R. for
he felt that while East Burnaby enjoyed a car line the other portions
ahould have the same.
Mr. Leaf felt tbat fireflghttng apparatus should be purchased by the
municipality for uae ln the settled districts. He advocated the purchase of
park sites; was against abolition of
the ward system and supported the
passing of all the money bylaws.
Mr. B. G. Walker, candidate for the
reeveship, was next called upon. The
Edmonds resident explained that if
elected It would mean a considerable
sacrifice of his time, but any candidate tor office must expect that. He
was a strong, supporter of the policy
of Reeve Weart ,and stated that he
had something to do with the bringing out of Reeve Weart from private
However, Mr. Walker stated he felt
claim a little of the credit.

Today is polling day and, in a few hours, the names of
those to whom the citizens will have entrusted the direction of the destinies of New Westminster for the ensuing
twelvemonths will be known, together with those who will
fill the vacancies on the school board. First then, we
would state that here and now the city has an opportunity
of breaking records in a manner that will bring her no
little fame, and that is by every man and woman in the
city, who is entitled to vote, turning out, be it rain or shine,
to register that vote.
A year ago the council went into office on the strength
of being progressive, and we believe that the electorate,
after making due allowance, will admit that they have
made good. That being so, we feel that they will signify
their appreciation thereof by electing again those members of the 1912 council who are again willing to serve.
In the administration of their respective departments
Aldermen White, Kellington, Dodd, Lynch and Henley
have set a high standard and we do not doubt that the
voters will take due cognizance of their records. All men
must make some sacrifice to serve on the council but we
are particularly glad that sufficient pressure has been
brought to bear upon Alderman White, and we trust that
he may again serve the city now that he has consented to
Of the seven candidates who are not members of the
present administration Messrs. Irwin and Hogg are our
choice, but the electorate have to judge for themselves.
Messrs. Jardine, Wilson and Bryson have served formerly
upon the council, Messrs Irwin, Hogg, Kennedy and
Peebles have not.
If the campaign has produced no other result it has
shown to dispassionate observers the caliber of Messrs.
Bryson, Peebles and Kennedy. One would think that men
���who professedly have the interests of the city at heart, and
who state that they have followed the trend of municipal |
events here, would have had something more to say in support of their claims for election than the futile digging up
of ancient history, belittling of New Westminster's progress and incorrect statements concerning civic expenditures that have to date been their main themes.
Honest criticism of the administration would have
been as welcome as would an announcement of the constructive lines which these gentJemen intended to pursue,
but of both there has oeen no sign.
New Westminster is climbing the hill of progress and j
���wants no breaks on its wheels.   We therefore trust that
the voters will see to it that a council is returned that will
ensure to New Westminster at least equal progress along
solid lines to that which has been registered during 1912.!

George V. Hobart. the creator ot
"Dinkelsplel," was born at Cape Breton, In Nova Scotia, forty-six years

Siamese  Twins, Who   Died  39 Years
Ayo Today, Were Not Unique.
Not long ago a dispatch announced
the existence of a new pair of "Siamese Twins"���the name long Blnce
given to twins who have the misfortune to he born united together by
cartilaginous bands. The original
Siamese Twins, who were exhibited
all over America and Europe and
were usually thought to be unique,
died thirty-nine years ago today, Jan.
16, 1874. United In life, they were
not separated in death, and within
two hours of each other they passed
Cham and En,y were the names of
the pair, who were born in Slam about
a century ago. They enjoyed all the
faculties and powers usually possess
ed by separate and distinct individuals. They were discovered on the
banks of the Siam river by Robert
Hunter, an American, who brought
them to America. They were first
placed on exhibition In New York, attracting tremendous attention, ljiter
Captain Coffin took them to England,
and, after being on exhibition several
years, they returned to America and
settled on n farm. There they married two Bisters. In 1369 they again
exhibited themselves in London, but
returned to America to die.
The Siamese Twins were declared
by their exhibitors to be unique, but
thi* was far from being the truth.
According to the testimony of medical men, twins joined together have
been born frequently, but seldom live
long. Perhaps the most remarkable
of such freaks, next to the Siamese
Twins were Millie and Christine, ne-
-���roes. who were born in North Carolina sixty-two years ago.
They were wholly distinct in the
upper part of the body, hut one In the
lower part of the body and pelvis,
while the four legs obeyed nerves
radiating from a common centre. The
will, understanding, and all mental
faculties, were distinct. They did a
singing and dancing "turn" In many
cities, and were billed as the "Two-
Headed Nightingale."
Another famous pair were the Aiis-1
trlan "Siamese Twins." Rose and
Josefa. At last reports they' had I
quit the stage and retired to their
native country to live. Rose was said
to be married and to he the proud
mother ol a norniel baby.
Other famous freaks of a genera-1
tlon that revelled in the abnormal
were Tom Thumb and his midget
wife. The "general" is dead, but his
vlffi was reported not long ago to be
still ln the land of the living. Some
������'ars after the death of Tom Thumb
she married Count Magri, another
midget. The Countess, if still living,
is In her Beventysecond year. Another famous midget, "Admiral Dot",
whose real name was Leopold Kahn,
retired from the show business with
a comfortable fortune and for many
years conducted a hotel at White
Plains.  N.  Y.
Jo Jo, "the dog-faced boy" once a
famous museum and side-show attraction. Is said to be living ln llurmah,

feet", I-'annie Mills, has been dead
eight years. Her feet, normal ln
shape, were nearly three feet long.
Appropriately enough, she was a native of Chicago. The world's tallest
woman, Annie Irwin, who was eight j

St. John, N.B., Jan. 15.-���The Canadian Pacific liner Mount Temple
docked at the west side last night
after a terrible run of twenty-one
days from Antwerp. The steamer
brought three saloon passengers and
142 steerage and 5000 tons of freight.
All through the voyage the ship
wsb swept by terrific seas and the
course was made through unceasing
gales of hurricane ferocity. This
trip was exceedingly rough, and the
steamer encountered continuous violent storms. Although the Mount Temple on her trips has often encountered
mountainous seas and tierce winds,
there bas usually been a spell of
During the recent voyage, however,
the ship was buffeted, and at times
the violence of the storm was so
great that anything on deck not held
by extra fastenings was carried away
by the great seas which crashed
aboard   the  big   steamer.
She weathered the Btorm ln good
shape and suffered the loss of only
four ventilators. When four hundred
miles east of Cape Race the Mount
Temple was In communication with
the burning Allen, liner Carthagenlan,
and learned that another steamer was
standing by. Later she received word
that the fire had been extinguished.

Appeal to [lectors
(Continued from rag* one)
vltiable that the city go slowly in its
borrowing, Le did not think the
bonded Indebtedness should be increased, he closed with u plea for
support to all thc labor candidates.
Alderman Lynch, the next speaker,
declared that the light department of
which he Is head, had accomplished a
great deal of work during 1912. It was
paying higher salaries lor both skilled and unskilled workmen than any
other department. Labor delegations
had always been well received by
him and he had always got along well
with the laboring men. lie thought
it would be a good Idea If the electrl
cal workers of this city would afllll
ate with tho New Westminster Trades
and l/rfbof-Dody instead of that of
Vanootwer, -with which they are con
nected at the present.
Hard to Make Out.
Speaking of the labor candidates'
plank of telling light nt cost, the
alderman thought some of thc statements made may have been directed
at him. It must be remembered that
he was not the only man on the council, but at any rate while thc city wa?
in tho development stage lt would ba
a hard thing to cut down the rales
When the construction of the city's
lighting system was complete be
would be ln favor of reducing thc
Mr. Lynch had always been in
sympathy with the laboring men. He
waa one of the first men to organize
the Now Westminster Trades Council
and he had held a union ticket for
twenty years.
Alderman White outlined briefly the
work and efforts of the police, library,
and parks committees, of which he is
the present chairman. If he was
elected he had a number of things In
view for 1913. When the money was
secured from the sale of the bonds
which were authorized by the passing
of a $20,000 by-law last year the Improvements to the parks would be
gone ahead with. He sketched briefly the progress of the library stating
the committee would soon require thc
use of the room at present held by
the school "board in the library building. Many improvements had been
made In the police department last
year and many more were In view for
this year.
Commenting upon the campaign,
Mr. White said that it had been a
strenuous one and that there had
heen a great expenditure of language
He hoped some good would result
from it. He closed with a complimentary tribute to thc labor candidates.
Aldcrman'c Candidate Mr. Joseph
W. Irwin was absent from the meeting on account of a bad attack of influenza, but requested it to be stated
that his policy was for progress along
proper lines, economy, businesslike
administration of all civic departments,-fair play to all and favors tn
none. On this platform he offers
himself to the electors and hopes
that" they will see fit to mark their
ballots  In  his favor today. ,
Mr. Peter Peebles took the audi-
enos Into his confidence and told
them a little further of his brllllanl
career, all since he sailed up the I-'ra-
���er river, of course. He told of his
days aa a union man nnd a member
of the Anti-Chinese league.
Takes Crack at The News.
Thc News came In for its share of
advertising when Mr. Peebles stated
that because he did not pat tlie mem-;
hers of the present administration on
the back he was left off The News hal
lot. He consoled himself for this
strange (?) omission by claiming that
one of the candidates who was on the
ballot had told him he was sorry for
it. its it would lose him lots of votes.
Alderman Dodd openeil his speech
by st-iting that he wanted it fully understood that he readily took his share
of the criticism of the present council or of any blame which attachcB to
the s-ulis or tke 1912 council. He paid
a tri|ut�� to Mayor Lee saying that In
two year, association with him he had
found blm earnestly and conscientiously workini- in tha Interests ot the
city and the people Mayor-elect Gray-
he also coipp'lm*'. I, saying that the
labor men had watched him for the
last few years and decided he was a
Jtnisbty good. man.
Mr. Dodd called attention to the
fact thfit for the last two years there
has been labor representation on the
council and its representative* had not
been found standing In the way ,.f pro
grass. He said the labor men favor
healthy progress and believe ln ��� tak
Ing the city a bigger, better ami n
brighter place to live In.

Mayor Lee explained his presence In
the campali-n by statins that he had
been eriliri:-<<i juit as much as If he
���were a candidate for re-election and
thought, that some things should In
explained to the voters. After speak

City Going Ahead.
No ono who will make a trip over
the city and see the Improvements
which have been made and are In
progress can still believe that their
money Js being waster, said his worship. Conditions now and a few years
ago. he said, are very different. At
that Uaae the people were unnble to
afford the improvements which are
belnt, made now, but with the Increase
of prosperity and the great growth
which is In prospect makes it necessary that preparations be made for
permanent improvements.
The tact that Hie receipts exceeded the expenditures during the last
���fear br more than $3000 was taken
*m aa indication tbat the city's affairs
i were being conducted on a business
I basis.
The men who are doing so much
criticizing, said the mayor, are speak:
! Ing in ignorance of the true state of
arfalrs, a thing which they had nol
i right to do. Charges nf improper ex-^
I penditure of money which cannot be
(borne out by the facts are equivalent
to an attempt to steal the good name
! and honor of the mayor and alder-
; men and should not be made on a pub-
j lie platform or elsewhere. The 1912
council, he said, is tho most painstaking and conscientious with which
he has had to deal during his three
years in office, and every member of
that body should have the confidence
and Ihiuiks of the electors, as should
also the city employees.
The criticisms hurled at him for
increasing tho clty'B debt Mayor Lee
characterized as an Insult to the people of the city, as he had given reasons for every dollar asked and the
people had accepted these reasons.
Ho explained that ln former days ln
making up tho apportionment, the
board of works came last and took
what was left, ln some Instances this
amount was very low, on one occasion
being ?G8 and with this the committee was supposed to do thousands of
dollars worth of work. Tho natural result was that the work bad to be done
on a temporary loan, which was carried nlong from year to yeur and never
wiped out until recently when a bylaw was carried for thlB purpose.
Alderman Kellington waB praised
for hiB work ln the Btreet department
and the mayor stated that by his efforts lt had been made a whole lot
easier for farmers to get lhto town
with their produce.
In closing, his worship referred to
the harbor improvement and explained thnt the work was progressing,
and actual operations would be started on the Front street portion when
the machinery arrives. He urged the
voters to select good men, not
(hose who would fall In with whatever
their associates sugested, nor those
who would kick against everything,
but good Bane men who would help
to make New Westminster a great

Aldrrman Kellington, chairman of
the board of works, stated that he i.aB
had differences with members of the
council but they were always amicably
Bettled. He praised Alderman Dodd
for his good work and thought he
should be returned with the other Aldermen
time, but one will be issued as Boon
as poitMible. VJ recommended that
the elections bu either held later in

Mummy   of   Egptian   Hlflh   Priestess
Works Misfortune  on   Many-
African   Ju-Ju.
That certain things bring sure disasters to their owners Is firmly believed in by many people.
Take the case of a Mr. Apperley.
a young artist. A little over three
years ago he bought a small West
African Idol, or Ju-j'i. Before this
for years in succession he had his
pictures hung in the Royal Academy.
He has not had a picture In the Academy since he bought the Idol!
Just after Mr. Apperley bought It
his house was burgled and all his
wife's Jewelry stolen. A week or two
later an outbreak of fire occurred,
Next year his wife had a serious illness, and the artist had a run of bad
luck and  disappointment.
He lent the ju-ju to a friend, who
returned it hurriedly in a fortnight 1
During that time he lost heavily over
a business deal: his wife, a most
careful woman, scalded herself on
two occasions; his neighbors bought
1 puppy the day after the Idol came,
and the result was a mob stoned his
windows in mistake for those of the
puppy owner! Finally, he had a severe attack of rheumatism. No wonder he returned the Idol-
Still more extraordinary was the
case of the mummy of the high priest
ess of Amen-Ra. now in the Itritish
Museum. This priestess belonged to
the   Royal   family  of  Egypt.
A party of four young Englishmen
secured the mummy about thirty year
ago In Kgypt. One of the young
men was crippled before they left
that country, and another was shot
shortly   before reaching  Kngland.    A

Dominion Government
Discuss Parcel Post
(Continued from page one)
that the United States government
had very often followed the Canadian
example In postal mattera and two or
three years ago had adopted entirely
the Canadian Bystem of postal savings
banks. He believed that the main opposition to Buch a system would be
found to come from the small storekeepers and from the express com-
panlcB, the latter particularly.
The Liberal member pointed out the
very great contrast between the ratea
on parcels coming from England and
those mailed in Canada.
"A parcel," he said, "can be sent
from London, England to Vancouver
cheaper than It can bo sent from I.on-
don, Ontario to Vancouver."
Tho ex-postmaster general reviewed
the long agitation which had taken
place In the United States leading
up to the recent Innovation, and said
that tho influence of the farmers had
been very marked in Its favor Just us
their Influence had been marked In
furthering tine contract of the rural
free mull delivery. As far as Canada
was concerned, even If some of the
country stores did suffer, he did not
think that this objection ahould be Insuperable. Similar objections had
been raised to reforms In the past.
The railways for Instance, said Mr.
Lemleux, had found strong opposition
from the stage coaches and steamboats
In  their earlier afages, were exceedingly  unpopular with the  owners of
sailing ships.    To come nearer home,
[ the    automobile    had    found    many
I enemies.    The   postofflce  department
was making a large amount of money
��� and whatever surplus there might be
' belonged to the people.
Mr. Lemleux felt that the time had
'conic to make the necessary expcndl-
. ture In order to give to the country a
: boon  which  nearly every other coun-
1 try In the world possessed today and
he   recommended   rile   adoption   with
whatever changes might be necessary.
William Martin, Regina, said that If
the government had in mind any extension of  the  parcels  post lt would
find such a move meeting with general
satisfaction in the west ami both aides
' of the house would be one on the qnea-
' tlon.
Twits   Mr.. Lemfeu-**.
Hen.  Mr.  Felletier twitted  Mr. Le-
! mleux with having dona nothing along
i the lines lie now suggested  when lie
I was in charge of the postofflce deport-
'ment.    He had very wisely, no doubt,
left these  things as a legacy to his
successors.    The question  of  the establishment of a parcels post system is
one which bristles with difficulty. The
depart ment   had   given   it  much  consideration  and   when  lt was   thought
that a solution had been arrived at It
was discovered that it would be necessary to go all over the ground again.
Mr   Ross  of   the  department  had
made  a  comprehensive    report    bat
I since II  was presented1 his ideas had
'undergone a conslderaflle change. The
ex-postmaster  general   had   suggested
that if the express companies were hit
the railways might be given more for
1 carrying the mail.
Mr.   I'elletier   did   not   consider  it
wise that members of the house Bhould
deliberately   Invite   the   railroadB   to
ask for more money.    He thought it
would   be   wise   In   the   consideration
'of  this  question  to discard   the Idea
'that it is the business of the depart-
I ment to go ln for a war In rates. That
! was beyond  the functions of the- department.
Dr. M. C. Clark of Red Deer, said
that he had a lengthy experience of
parcels post In the old country snd
perhaps nothing in the public serrice
there brought greater happiness and
comfort to thc homes of aU classes of
E. M. Nesbltt. North Oxford, said he
was forced to the condnston that the
express companies were very much
overcharging. In Ontario there was
a fair rate on farm products but on
other small articles the rates were
outrageous. He donhted if a system
would take away from the small stores
much more than they had lost already
and he referred te the excellent service which could be giren throughout
the country ln connection with the rur
al mall delivery. He gave an example
of high express rates in his own recent experience.

The first divorce court in England
was instituted lifty-flve years ago today, Jan. 16, 1S5S.. The Jurisdiction
of the ecclesiastical authorities respecting divorce was abolished by
this act Tho divorce aud matrimonial court consisted of three Judges,
and the first body of this kind had
aB members Lord Campbe|l, Chief
Baron Pollock and Sir Cresswcll Cres-
At the first sitting five marriages
were dissolved, and lu tho first .year
of existence the court granted thirty-
eight divorces out of a total of 288
petitions, tip to the time of tbe establishment of the court there had
been ln England, since the reformation, 317 divorces granted by acts of
parliament. Down to the passing of
Ihe divcrce act In 185S, the theory of
Bngljsh law ln regard to divorce was
the same as that of the Roman Catholic Church, although In practice
this rule was not strictly adhered
to, and wealthy and Influenclal persons might, through parliament, secure freedom  from galling ties.
The divorce act provided that the
wronged husband could be released
from his obligations to an unfaithful
spouse, but gave no such recourse to
an Injured wife unless the husband's
adultery was aggravated by other offenses. Divorce law reforms have recently been widely discussed ln England, and a recent report on tho subject has been tbe subject ot much

Tales That Are Told o* the Great Eng-
lith  Humorous  Poet.
The late Sir W. Gilbert will long bo
remembered for what he did for tin;
English stage. He found the lump ot
burlesque burning low and malod'-r-
Mi.-i, and he invented u new mid en
chanting form ol entertaiiinijt t, su'--
tli* enough, with its delicate *rony, t<>
cuptivute the most exacting intellect:
yet rippling over with a delicious
gaiety that a happy child might
share. He had a mordant satire,
feurlc.-is and keen-edged; an inexhaustible wit, scintillating in every
line; a Puck-like aptitudj for paru-
dox, whimsical and merrj; and with
it all no word was spoken which un
honest man or woman need bluih t.i
In Thn Century Illustrated Magit-
tine there is an interestii.*; article entitled, "Sir W. Gilbert at I knew
him," written by Mr. Roland Grey.
giving his impress mns of the'famous
librettist. Looking back to the first
chance of listening to tlie conversation'
of thc author of "Pinafore," Bays Mr.
Grey, toy itnrneilinlc and moused impression wns thnt he took as great
pains to he dull as others do to lie
brilliant, wi'h almost cqunl success.
Do what he would, thc wit sparkled
out, ill hii'li he never enjoyed inskitu
a joke so much a, when he made It
to n  diill'inl.
His tahle-tulk will not be garnered
up iu dismal little volumes where ths
champagne is flat and thc lamps burn
dim. Brevity was the soul of his. wit.
'Ihe terrible verdict ss to a certain
"Hamlet" whose impersonator unwisely asked him to be candid is historical: 'funny, my dear fellow���funny without being vulgar. ' A i:mark
about another concerted player was
made   to   a   very   limited   audience;

Mere black and white can never
convey the intitnite charm of the library where mucli of his later work
was done at the orderly writing table
at which, when a play was in progress, he regularly spent the morning
hours. Strange creatures were allowed
free access to hiin, discovering thc
vein of tenderness which would make
hi.n sit still with n lemur asleep upon
his shoulder rather than disturb it by
moving. There were rlways flowers,
of which he liked mignonette best,
but the chief ornaments of a room all
sunshine nnd harmonious coliring
were the white shelves laden with the
richly hound books which he rend
chiefly lnte at night; and the favorite
of them all was the Book of .lob.
Sir William Gilbert contradicted
every indication regarding genius,
Michselangela, as "eternal patience."
His mind was as disciplined as it was
original. His eyes never rolled with
"fire frenty," hut they weie keen to
discover any flaw in his work. He
considered every detail as worthy *.(
special research.
He would buy the bert ond most
expensive Greek lexicon to insure the
perfect aeeur-c/ of tha Greek words
and phrases intioduced into a sinulo
Sottas in "Hi* Majesty," and lis would
copy a whole play in his clear handwriting when new editions called lor
alteratioi -,, which his warmest devotees often deplore.
As we glance respectively at the long
sequence of play.- Gilbert has given us
as an inheritance, the chief impre-
sion left by his work is that it will
endure fnr all its fantasy, because :t
is the work of one who- will stand
among thc makers of the Knglish language. He invented new meter- which
arc pure music, and made his bright
mischief with words bent to hii airy,
intricate uses.
He never borrowed, and he never
stole. His quick brain wai- too resourceful for any risk of pligarisin,
despite the wild culture which can be
a positive snare to a leas original
mind. He has absolutely no analogy
with any other writer in any 'thai
country. In his own province "the'*-
is no one beside him and no one above
him," He is sule autocrat of a laity
realm, where, delicious thought, there
are no bores. Fun and Frolic are the
cup-bearers of his dainty Muse, who'
could ."never, like Mr. Rudyard Kipling's, "travel with thc coffee snd Ihe
pork." He had no need frr hit pathe
tic lament that humor was exhausted.
though when he looked st the poverty
of the frit of our "funny fellows and
clowns of private life," he may wel.
have been too depressed to realix.*

As promptly tbe occupant of the bed
sprang out snd a desperate struggle

appeared to be about to fling herself to

Tbe neighbor, however, dragged tbe
lady back Into tbe room, and tben tbe

Chief Engineer.
Ottawa, Jan, 16.���Tbo report of the
Royal Northwest Mounted Police for
tbe year 1912 was tabled in the House
by Premier Borden this afternoon.
The report shows that on Sept. 30
the strength of the force consisted of
64 officers and 600 non-commlsBloned
officers and constables, an Increase of
four officers and 20 men compared
with the force for the year ending
Sept. 30, 1911.
Eleven divisional posts and 186 detachments have been maintained. Alberta with five poet* and 82 detachments have 262 ot the members of the
force; Saskatchewan, with four divisional post* and 87 detachments, 335;
the new portion of Manitoba, with one
post and six detachments, 22;, the Yukon territory, with one post and
eight detachments, 40 of the force, and
the Northwest territories, with two
detachments, five of the force.
Case*  Dealt  With.
During the year 13,391 caseB were
entered hy the police. Of these 11,-
435 resulted ln convictions; 1307 were
dismissed or withdrawn, and 249 were
awaiting trial on Sept. 30. Compared
with 1911. these figures show an Increase of 3973 cases and an Increase
of 360 convictions.
The casrs include 30 murders, 17 In
Mberta. 12 In Saskatchewan and one
ln the Yukon; 21 cases of attempted
murder, eight ln Saskatchewan and 13
ln Alberta; and eight manslaughter
cases, two in Saskatchewan and six ln
Alberta. In 21 of these cases convictions were secured, and on Sept. 30
17 remained to be tried.
In, 1905 there were 23 cases of these
kinds and eight convictions, but the
report sets forth that, "in proportion
to the population there Is little Increase, and the same result will be obtained if compared with statistics for
the 12 years."
Aliens Responsible.
Another interesting comment made
by the report Ib that "names of the accused Indicate an undue proportion
of our alien population responsible for
these crimes ot violence, and the
west Is paying the penalty for drawing
a large Immigration from Central Europe.''
Of the total of 13,391 cases entered
by the police, 6924 were in Saskatchewan; 6058 in Alberta; 257 in the Yukon; 96 in Manitoba, and 16 In the
territories. In 1900 the total number
of convictions was 936 as compared
with 11,435 last year.
Commissioner Perry   refer*   to   the
change'!   conditions   Jn  Saskatchewan
and Alberta,   which    ln his    opinion, j
calls   for n    reconsideration    of   the
agreement between the two provinces I
and  the  Dominion.      He  points    out j
that under  the agreement of 1906 a I
fore* nf 250 wns to be kept in    each I
province.    Since that time the popu-1
lation   of  the   provinces   has   practically doubled, much new country has j
been opened up and   In many   ways
the work devolving upon the mounted
police has greatly increased.
Reconsider Agreement*.
"I strongly recommend," the commissioner says, "that the agreement
with the provinces should be recon
sidered and that a new arrangement
should be made which would justify
the government of Canada in making
such substantial increase to tbe
strength of the force aB would enable
It to effectively carry out its duties."
The commissioner also points out
that under arrangements with Manitoba the services of the mounted police are to be retained In the territory
recently annexed to that province on
similar terms  to those   under which
Pa*t Nine Month* Shows Sixteen Per

334,083   Arrive.
Ottawa, Jan. 15.- During the nine
months, April 1 to December 31, 1912,
334,083 Immigrants arrived lu Canada. Of this number 220,285 arrived
at ocean ports and 113,789 from the
United States.
These figures show an Increase of
14 per cent, a* compared with the
number of arrivals for the corresponding months of 1911, which were 185,-
151 at ocean ports and 107,365 from
the United States, making a total for
the nine months period last year of
292,516 persons.
During the month of December thlB
year there were 13,025 arrivals, 7626
of them having been at ocean port*
and 5763 from the United States,
against 10,042 for December last year,
4945 of whom were at ocean ports and
5679 from thc United States.
Varying the comparison, we have
for the same nine months: British,
217,876; from the United Statcs,113,-
798; all other countries, 92,410; total,
334,083. Corresponding mouths of the
previous year: British, 120,137; from
the United States, 107,365; all otber
countries, 65,014;  total, 292,516.
Comparing the calendar year 1912
with 1911, Immigration figures are as
follows: 1912, British, 145,859; American, 140,143; other countries, 109,-
802; total, 396,804. 1911, British. 144.-

tbe Interested and constant attention
of the foreign office and the Brazilian
It Ib a plot to seize and colonize a
vast and practically unknown territory, 160,000 square miles In extent,
to the extreme northeast of Brazil,
known an Cunanl. Plans are being
laid by the remarkable filibustering
venture to Induce a large number of
British naval and military officers as
well sb a number of non-commissioned oncers and men to be recruited by
them to go out on a fleet of armored
ship*, wblch Is to be provided, seize
the Brazilian territory, drive out such
Brazilian troop* as may be found
there and colonize the country as a
Utopian republic.
The leader in the venture ls a
Frenchman named Adolpe Brezet, who
for' years has been living with hiB
wife and three children in a suburb of
London. Brezet ha* already Induced a
large number of young men to take
commissions in the army and posts ln
the civil service of this so-called free
state of Cunani.
His secretary of state for foreign affairs ls an American, who manages
several small businesses from an
office In this city. After three years
of service, every Cunanlan officer Is
entitled to a farming, mining, forest
or urban concession.

in due course to arrange a loan of $60,-

That observation was made four years
ago. To day the Berliner is undoubtedly organized chiefly for Nachtleben.
It is not only tiis goal of goals, but
her*, too, for the Berliner's wife Is as
ardently devoted to seeing things at
night as her husband. She reveals an
amazing aptitude for keeping awake
and for taking her sixth or seventh
Instalment of refreshment at 4 or 5

the emancipation of the Hausfrau
been more complete.
When all Is ready the armada Is to

occupy Cunanl. He declares that Brazilians in that area never show fight,
or if they do, are easily beaten.
Northern Ontario Ships Out First Car
to  Pennsylvania.
Cobalt, Jan. 16.���The flrat car of
poplar for pulpwood purposes haB been
-���hipped out of Tlmlskamlng, consign-
��d to a pulpwood company In Johns-
-town, Pa. The car was the first of
| 22 that will go to the same place.
It will be treated by a new process
vhlch  makes the wood  valuable for
paper-making, and which will greatly
[enhance the value of lands ln Timls-
f"ksmiiig and Northern Ontario.
Four dollars a cord ls now being
paid for poplar cut for pulpwood,
-while $6 is the price for spruce cut for
the same purposes.
The timber on thousands of acres of
Northern Ontario land Is poplar,
-which has been good for no purpose
at all except firewood, and then nniv
after It has been carefully dried. The
new process ls likely to prove a godsend to the settlers who have selected
poplar-timbered lands because they
.are easy to clear.

Strictly speaking, the Italian authorities have no Jurisdiction over the
Vatican, which Is extra territorial, but
for fear that complications might arise
after the death of Pius X. It war
thought better to have tbe question
settled beforehand.
A recess ln the wall, large enough
for a coffin, haa now been prepared.
It has been bricked over so aB to resemble a slab of marble, on which the
name and age of his Holiness can be
engraved, and has been prepared In
such a way that there will be no delay about the burial of the body,
which must be after nine days.

McGregor Says Rival

(Continued from page one)
will get them and I am the man to
help you.
Reeve Weart, who was the laBt!
speaker, explained why hs was supporting Mr. McGregor for thc reeveship, first complimenting Mr. Walker
for his efricient work as stipendiary
"Mr. Walker need not be surprised
at me supporting Mr. McGregor, for
I have known him longer. When 1
came back from England Mr. McGregor asked me If 1 would give him
my support and I promised on the one
condition that should a man come forward whom I did not feel like trusting, then I would get In the race my-
sely. Mr. Hugh KraBer of Central
Park saw me a month afterwards and
asked my support but 1 told him it
was already promised.
'Councillor McGregor has been acting reeve on two occasions and each
time he has filled the post well. You
ratepayers elect a board of directors
to a company handing one million ana
a quarter dollara a year and for this
you pay the general manager $300 a
year. We have everything ready to
go ahead with the work of 1913, then
���vho, I ask, Is the'logical man?" Inquired Reeve Weart,
' "With regard to the franchise,' continued the reeve, "the majority of the
voters were in favor of It in September, 1911 but it lacked 42 votes of a
three-fifths majority. No one in Burnaby has worked harder than I have
towards effecting a settlement and it
was only a few weeks ago that I held
the commanding vote but no man will
ever acuse me of going over the heads
of the people.
"Suppose the privy council do throw
out the franchise they may come back
and say pay the n.C.EI". the money
lost through operating the Burnaby
Lake branch, with 5 per cent Interest and then we would be in a pretty
pickle." declared the mayor.
In closing Reeve Weart thought he
had a right to support a'iy cand'iitite
provided that man, in his estimation
vas capable of looking after the affairs of one or the best municipalities
'n the province. He ended with saying
that he felt conrident that Councillor
McGregor was hv tnr Ihe most capable
candidate for the position.
Mr. E. N. Wiltshire, as chairman of
the meeting made a creditable showing.
