Suffragettes Angry
London Fears Outbreak
Police Work Overtime
London, Jan. 27.���England ts on the
brink of another campaign by the suffragettes In comparison to which the
former outbreaks of the militant women will appear Insignificant. Two
thousand policemen were engaged tonight In dispersing huge crowds near
the parliament buildings, shopkeepers
were boarding up windows and excited
women were making Incendiary addresses In several halls.
The women believe that the politicians have played a carefully studied
trick upon them and the decision of
the government to drop the franchise
bill is likely to lead to serious consequences.
In the bouse ot commons the speaker, the Rt. Hon. James William Low-
tber, ln response today to an Inquiry
by the prime minister, announced tf
any of the amendments to the franchise bill giving women the vole
should be adopted, he would be obliged to rule that tbey made it substantially a new bill, which would compel
Its withdrawal.
Mr. Asqulth thereupon announced
that tbe cabinet had decided that under such circumstances, It would be
useless to proceed. This was announced to a crowded house, wblch
displayed more Interest In the subject
than had been shown in the last stages
of the Home Rule bill.
Police Are Busy.
In the meantime the police were
having difficulty In keeping the crowd
In check, while reserve forces stationed in court wards fn the vicinity of
parliament were held ln readiness to
quell disorders of a more serious n*i-
ture.
The suffragettes held heater" grth-
erings tonight. Mrs. Emallne Pankhurst and other leaders denounced
both the enemies and supporters of
suffrage in the cabinet for their
treachery. They declared au end of
the truce, which the women had observed while awaiting parliament's action on the bill.
Several women were arresti-l tonight, some of whom declined to give
their names. One, believed to be Miss
Sylvia Pankhurst, captured ln St.
Stephen's ball, leading to thss house
of commons, where she wai, making a
determined attack on the large paintings.
The police dispersed a rowd iu Trafalgar Square where a man and a woman were trying to make speeches.
The speakers, who resisted, were arrested. The noted militant, Mrs. DeB-
pard, waa taken to the police station
with six others.
"Deeds, not words," was the motto
displayed above the platforms where
Mrs. Pankhurst spoke. She asserted
that the women would consider human
life  sacred,  but  would  do  as  much
damage to property as possible.
Some of her lieutenants failed to
agree with her policy. Miss Anne
Kenny, one of tbe most prominent of
the militants, advocated smashing of
both pro->--;-.y and heads. The executive of tbe National'Woman Suffrage
league adopted a resolution respecting
Mr. Asquith's offer of felicities for a
private member's bill next session.
A number ot speakers said the women had prepared a plan of action
which for the present was secret but
whicb would surprise the world.
Tbe bit ciowdf- wblch poured toward Westminster afternoon and night
wi. composed mostly ot men who
hoped to sec an outbreak of the militant suff i-agett"-,. Policemen kept
them movin,-, and drove them down
the Hide etroets.
Good Natursd Crowd.
Everybody was good natured and
there was much singing and cheering.
Virtually the whole police force will
be on duty all night. Strong guards
are stationed at all public buildings,
and a special watch ls being kept on
post offices and letter boxes.
Mrs. Pankhurst's denunciation of
the government was Bery and bitter.
"The force of the reform bill Is
played out," she said. "Either those
who framed the bill were Ignorant of
parliamentary procedure and they
were unlit to occupy positions of responsibility, or they were scoundrels
of tbe worst sort. It has been a
meek battle. Mr. Harcourt and Mr.
I.loyd George were seen going arm-Inarm into a music hall Saturday. Can
you imagine them saying: 'Well, now
that we bave ditched the women, let
us forget about It and go and see the
cinematograph.'"
The women had lost their touching
faith ln politicians and were likely to
lose their faith In the average man,
she continued, and short of taking
lives, the suffragists were warranted
in using all tho methods employed in
times of war.
Mrs. Despard, at another meeting
Bald:
"We are up against man-made law.
We are going to show that_law can
not and ahall not bind women, by
breaking the laws ln every poaalblc
way. 1 hope there will be many pas
slve resister-s. I hope a great many
will do otlwr things. All who are ln
the front cf the movement do not
care in the least what happens to
themselves."
Mrs. I'riiinmond. president of the
Women's Social and Political Union,
has written to Chancellor Lloyd
Oeorge asking him to receive another
deputation tomorrow. One of the
suffragette suggestions Is that Mr.
Lloyd George and Sir Edward Grey
should resign office.
SCOTS CELEBRATE
BURN'S BIRTHDAY
in
Excellent Concert Held
St Stephens' Church
Last Night.
Local   Artists,   With   Assistance   of
Two From Vancouver Provide
Fine   Program. '
The "Burns' Nlcht" concert held In
St. Stephen's Presbyterian church un
der the auspices of the Guild last
night, was not only a success finanoi
ally, but It was also a musical treat
ot the highest excellence.
Tbe appreciation of the large audience which attended, despite the dense
fog, may be implied when It is mentioned that of the fourteen numbers
rendered every one was encored and
no denial was taken.
Mr. D. Lightbody presided and at
the close of the concert expressed the
indebtedness of the Guild for the
presence oT so many to help them to
defray the cost of the Guild piano.
As a rule, he said, they cpnflned themselves to their own talent, but on this
occasion they were obliged to go out-
Bide. He would therefore call for a
hearty vote of thanks to their outside
friends who had given their services
so willingly. The vote of thanks was
given enthusiastically.
The artists external to St. Stephen's
were MIbb Crofts and Mies Prosser
of Vancouver, Mrs. H. W. Smith, Mr.
W. Howie, Mr. Duncan and Master
Sam White of New Westminster.
The National Bard. ���
The chairman's opening remarks
were brief but to the point. He said
they were there to celebrate the birth
day of Scotland's national bard. If
there was a chance of bearing the
songs of Burns they would always find
Scots willing, yea anxious to congregate. Where there was one Englishman who knew his Shakespeare, even
by name only there were ten Scotsmen who knew his Burns well.

Bl'RNABY COUNCIL
DISLIKE CiMfN!
Made  at  Rscsnt  Banquet  Regarding
Way They Held*Autom#t��lllsU
Down���Will Write Mr. Kerr.
Edmonds, Jan. 27.���Tho criticism
levelled at the Burnaby council and
police department by members ot the
Westminster Automobile Club at Its
meeting held last week was' taken exception to by Reeve McGregor aad
the council tbls evening, and after a
little discussoin the clerk was instructed to write to Mr. W. J. Kerr,
president of the club, and ask whether the gentleman was not misinformed when be made such statements. , .-..
These were to tbe effect that "a
solicitor would be appointed tils year
to take up all cases effecting club
members, like those in Burnaby,
wblch believed that every j lacrosse
match in New Westminster meant thc
add.tlon of $500 to |600 to, it* exchequer in lines, although the eutoista
never exceeded tbe speed limit.
Where the great trouble lay was that
rural municipalities bad great Ideas
of lining automobile people whether
they exceeded the speed limit or not."
Reeve McGregor, In commehtlng on
the statements alleged to haw been
made by Mr. Kerr, stated that he felt
disappointed when reading thi report
of the chief of police on the matter
that the exchequer bad not been assisted in such sums as stated at the
New Westminster meeting.

What might have been a serious
mishap occurred on the B. C. E. R. at
��:1ft -o'clock last evening when two
ears met in a rear-end collision on the
Highland Park cut-off near Sixth
avenue.
Car No. 1200, known in railway
circles as the Ladner, left the depot
about 8:45 o'clock, but thc electrical
mechanism became unruly and while
monnting the grade near Sixth avenue, the car came to a dead stop.
The lime lost in making its way
from the Columbia street station allowed the 9 o'clock car, No. 1223, to
catch up with the flrst car and the
rolling fog at that juncture did not
allow the motorman to pull up in
time to evade a crash.
The rear vestibule of Car No. 1208
was smashed considerably, while the
ether vehicle, which is of tbe new
type and has only been on the run
some few weeks, was badly stove ln,
the motorman, named Aspee, having
Parkins-),i lone knee slightly Injured.
Open First Tenders
On Harbor Improvement
at City Council Meeting
The greater part of the time at the
council meeting last night was taken
up In tbe opening of tenders for part
'tf tbe material and equipment to be
used on the Front street harbor Improvements. There were some 40 bids
received and naturally with so many
bidding the figures supplied by the
various firms were very much diversified.
After all the tenders had been opened and the figures noted by a number
of representatives of the firms who
entered them they were referred to
the harbor committee which will consider them and report later to the
council with recomendatlons as to the
ones which are most suitable.
Firms from practically every part
of Canada and all parts of the coast
were among the tenderers. The equipment required according to the specifications was: a dredge, a derrick,
scows and a tog and considerable material which it ls proposed to use in
the round pile quay wall, which will
form part ot the Improvement work.
In connection with the harbor improvements Alderman Bryson stated
that there was an impression abroad
among the ratepayers that the Improvements to be made would extend
from the eastern end of the market
wharf to the foot of Tenth street,
-While since he had become a member
of the council he understood that the   _..  ,

The city desires to settle a street

referred to the board of works.
In a letter to the council Me-r-rrs-
Cleveland and Cameron of Va
who conducted the surveying for
new city maps which when produced
recently were found to be Incorrect taa
some detalils, recommended that tke
council consider the advisability taf
having entirelly new and up to date
maps made instead of just merely reprinting those just issued.
The reason given for this waa tbat.
the new maps were two years oat of
date on account of the taridness oT
the government in dealing with then-;
and the unusual real estate activity or
the past two years.    The survey tutr-

The alderman also found in going

THE PROBLEM OF THE LAND.
What is the great magnet that lures the woodsman of
Scandinavia, the peasant of Central Europe, the British
youth who feels within him something of the spirit of the
men who sailed far seas in the long ago? What is it that
brings him to Canada? It is the promise, displayed in a
hundred tongues, of free land, of a chance to make good
on the soiL
Wer need not here consider whether the soil is being
robbed or whether unmixed farming has to come to an
�����end, but the fact remains that the cities of the .prairies
are built on solid foundations because they are the out-
aiome of the myriad farms whose produce makes them so.
Here in British Columbia the land is not given away,
while in our own district its price is by many considered
too high, while again we have the authority of the deputy
Minister of agriculture for B. C. in stating that, despite
its great cost, farming can be profitably carried on here
if modern and scientific lines are followed.
New Westminster would be in a very different position were the Fraser valley all cleared land, and were
there a farmer upon every 160 acres or every 40 acres or
every 2r*/2 acres of it, as one may prefer. But, against
the drawback from which she suffers when compared
with the prairie cities must be set the fact that she' will
derive much wealth from the shipping of the grain first
handled by all the cities of Alberta, while she also has
the advantages of an important trade in lumber and fish.
But we have long recognized, and Vancouver is beginning to recognize, that there is need to develop all our 	
resources.   The same movement is seen over the border nccompl'6lie^'1-"tl^ way'ot'"*sanIta"-

they proclaimed martial law. Instantly the flames of revolution spread
over the eastern and weEtern provinces. Jose Marti proclaimed the republic, and rallied his followers under
the old flag of 1868, a triangular blue
union with a single star and five
stripeB, three red and two white.
Within a few weeks Marti gave up
his life to the cause, and was hailed
as the Cuban martyr to liberty. Other
leaders took his place, and fought
valiantly against "Butcher" Weyler
and his roldiers. With the assistance
of the United States the Cuban republic was established, with Tomas Estrada Palma, now dead, as its first
president.
Since the end of the American intervention four years ago today, Cuba
has been comparatively peaceful.

London, Jan. 27.���A serious and determined movement Is ou foot ln

The leading bodies in this vast

the general federation of trade unions,

In many respects the work ol

_ The early days saw immense tracts in both those countries alienated from the people and this state of affairs
has, unfortunately, a duplicate in our own province Our
prime need today and for the future is of men. The opening of the Panama canal will bring us wealth, increased
'lumber shipments, exports of prairie wheat, of our own
fish. It will also bring us men, but we fear that many of
the possible agriculturists in their number will pass
through our province, while the dregs will stay here as
.they have done in Montreal and New York.
The Guelph Agricultural and Experimental Union has
shown that on a small holding of two and a half acres intensively farmed, a clear profit of $2,700 can be made in
addition to supplying the needs of one's home. It is of little
-value that the Dominion government grant aid for the
' education of farmers, if we have not the farmers to

British Enterprise In
Ocean Going Oil Burners
Ixmdon, Jan. 27.���British shipowners
and shipbuilders are beginning to
look upon internal combustion engines as tbe coining means of propulsion for vessels. The experiments so
far made have proven highly satisfactory and a number of companies have
decided to equipped their ships with
the big gasoline englnfa.
Sir Marcus Samuel, head of the
Shall Transport & Trading Company,
recently formed the Flower Motor-
ship Company, and is confident that
the day of the ocean vessel equipped
with Internal combustion engines has
arrived. Discussing the subject here
he said:
"I have long been Interested ln the
development of the motorship and 1
let it be known some time ago that as
soon as British firms could turn out a
satisfactory internal combustion engine I would undertake the building
and operating of ships equipped with
such ��� engines. Now that two firms
have responded to this offer, the Flower Motorship Company has been formed and orders for ships of the unpre-
��� cedently large size of 6000 tons have
been placed.
"Messrs. Swan & Hunter are build-
new engines will be built. With such
engines there Is nothing Ultimately to
prevent the construction of a ship
the equivalent In size, speed and comfort of the Mauretaniu.
"The supreme advantage of the motorship conslBts ln the smallness of
the space occupied by the machinery
and the fuel for the machinery. Let
ua take the case of a steamship In the
India trade. To maintain a speed of
twenty knots an hour she would have
to burn four hundred tons ot coal a
day, and Bhe must also have bunkers
for that quantity of coal.
Now a motorship could maintain
such a speed on one hundred tons of
oil a day. I can say also that the use
of oil Is economical in the long run.
It takes fewer men to handle it, less
room to store It. The fact that there
would be no coal bunkers on such a
ship means a gain of something like
a thousand tons In stowage.
Absence of Heat.
"Another advantage particularly obvious In tbe India trade and appreciable to the Atlantic traveler ls tbe absence of heat. The great heat of thc
Ped Sea, for instance, prevents the
stokers from doing their best work
ing two ships for us and Messrs. Arm-; There Is no stoking In the  accepted
strong, Whitworth & Co. are building one. Messrs. Swan & Hunter will
supply their own engines. Messrs.
Armstrong, Whitworth ft Co. will get
theirs form the Wallsend Shlpway
Company.
We   contemplate, howver,   a   very
sense of the word on motorships.
Yet If circumstances favor us and
possible rivals remain Inactive the
Atlantic will be one of our fleldB. It
must not be Imagined that oil propelled vessels are ln the experimental
stage; that is long since past. We have
much larger program than this, for' the Shell and Royal Dutch Lines, run

that if other firms interested In ship-1 lhe June, running between Roumanla,

Fort Worth, Texas, Jan. 27.���Nemesis after following Henry Zlegland for
".'0 years, wrecked vengeance upon
li!m at Honey Grove in a remarkable
manner when a shot fired at blm 20
years ago killed him.
partition between the two sldcsof the
heart now forms one outside boundary
cf each part.
Therefore In these people the arterial blood must be driven through the
body from the left compartment of
thc chest, while the vencus blood
must return to the heart In the right
compartment. This would mean an
entirely unnatural formation of the
arteries and veins within all of the
upper part of the body. Ono thing
that supports this belief Is the fact
that the apex beat of each heart was
not wholly as It should be.
While other cases of a compound
heart have been known in the medical world, never before ln the history
of the profession have four of them
existed in one family.
At least one of tbe children will be
brought before the Northampton
County Medical Society as soon as possible. At present all are confined to
their home in quarantine occasioned
by the epidemic of chioken-pox. It ls
the purpose of the doctors of Boston to
call the attention of some of the most
noted specialists in the country to
this phenomenon.
A peculiar phase of the case Is tbat
to outward appearances the other organs of all three are arranged ln normal position. Only one of them Is tn
tho lease deformed, one side of her
chest being slightly larger than the
other. They have always been
healthy and able to play about just as
ordinary boys and girls.

Of these 1077 were of Illegitimate

Scientific
Selling
The commercial world is alive to the possibilities of
scientific manufacturing. Great strides are being made
in the application of a set of principles so sincere and simple that their value is not open to doubt. Scientific management is opening the way for greater efficiency and
greater economy in production.
The production of an article, however, is but one of
the processes through which it must go, and the giant task
is today and always has been to find the best method of
distributing what is produced.
Distribution frequently costs more than production.
Dollars will go further in their purchasing power and
standards of living will be generally enhanced in just the
proportion that distribution is simplified and economized.
Students of economic conditions are convinced that
the American system cf selling has been extremely wasteful and manufacturers in many lines are now earnestly
considering not only what they may do to organize their
production on the most scientific basis, but also how they
may lessen thc cost of selling and thereby make a greater
profit, or give the consumer the advantage of a better article for the same money or the same article for less
money.
Intelligent advertising is a powerful aid in the solution of this vexatious problem.
It requires effort to sell goods and salesmen must be
paid for making this effort. A merchant buys goods to
sell them. He is interested in profit and retailing has
long since reached the point where quick sales with small
profits are more highly regarded than slow sales with
large profits.
The merchant realizes that well-advertised goods are
partially sold and that his trade, although the profit per
sale may be slightly less, is certain to be more brisk on
goods of this character.
The salesman who can offer to his trade a line of merchandise which is widely known and for which there exists a favorable prejudice can sell his wares with less effort than if he were handling an unknown article.
The manufacturer who is paying salesmen for making a sales effort obviously has to pay less price for less
effort.     And this condition does not work against the
salesman.    He can cover more territory, get a better
hearing and in the long run make more money.
The scientific ideal endorses a straight line as the
shortest distance between two points.
If a railroad is to be constructed from o*-'* city to another the engineering ideal is an air line; out. of course,
grades must be leveled, streams crossed, other towns
taken into consideration, and a practical building of the
road means a departure from the ideal.
In merchandising we have a parallel case���the man
who makes something and the man who wants something.
The selling ideal is a straight route from one of these men
to the other. But there are jobbers, retailers, competitors and market conditions to be considered and in practical selling all these elements must be given due attention.
Advertising, however, provides a short route by which
the man who makes something may tell about it to the
man who wants such an article, and if enough persons are
told and taught, they will make their desires felt through
the retailer and the jobber. The manufacturer then gets
his reward because he has his mark on his goods and ho
alone can supply them.
His salesmen find it less difficult to sell the goods and
through this process, wisely conceived and courageously
conducted, many a business is bringing about a much more
wholesome condition in its selling.
Business men are learning that'll is better and cheaper and economically more sound to get the bulk of trade
in a given line by identifying their merchandise and creating for it a wide demand.
It is not illegal or illegitimate to raise a business beyond the pale of competition by aueh methods and approach to a monopoly call frequently be built along these
lines.,
If thc man at tlie head of such a business sees with a
clear vision and does not unwisely take too great advantage of tine position thus secured, the people at large will
be the direct beneficiaries of his activities, big businesses
will be spared from pernicious molestation and all of the
advantages of great production and scientific distribution may be realized'. ;���
It appears reasonable to us that the largest, oldest
and most highly organized advertising house in the world
is probably in a superior position tto furnish counsel and
assistance to business men who are confronted with such
problems. It is a noteworthy fact that we have been con-
apicuoimly sueceaaftd in developing, frequently from
small beginnings, some very large advertising accounts
with manufacturers of staple commodities and corporations offering for ***** aervktw of a public or semi-public
nature.���From The Aye* Idea in Advertising.*-

Cabinet suggestions continued to
pour in today. A committee from tlie

when they will stop,  	
The age of upsets Is not yet over
and although the Vancouver team
have enjoyed a lay-off since Tuesday
of last week, the fact that not a
single scratch was sustained by the
Royals evens up this argument.
Bumps and Injuries play more havoc
with a team than two clean games s
week and tbe short work-ouut held
yesterday afternoon in Vancouver
ground the rough and sore edges off
the players following the week end
game.
Westminster will depend on the
same speedy septette that defeated
Victoria on Saturday, although It may
be possible and ln fact Ib probable
that Ran McDonald will break Into
the play quite early ln the second
quarter.
The showing made by Rochon on
the defence will hardly allow of his
being dropped, ln fact the Port Arthur
boy and Johnson appeared to be a
perfect duo ln breaking up the rushes
of the Senators. With Lehman in
goal the defence division can be relied upon.
Manager Gardner expressed himself
as well satisfied with tbe change
made- in the attacking force so that it
l.i likely that Oatman, Mallen, Tobln
und Gardner will commence operations with McDonald and Treherne as
reserves.
Now that the losing streak has been
broken the Royals can be expected to
hit a terrific clip. The same applies
to Vancouver, who, if they win tonight, will be on the same footing
with Victoria, at the head of the
league table. The game will start
promptly at 8:30 and the teams will
be:
Westminster. Vancouver.

Famous Olympic Wonder Is Cast off
Amateur Athletics for Playing
Baseball for Money,
New York, Jan. 27.���James Thorpe,
the Carlisle Indian, whose name bas
been mentioned throughout tbe world
during the past year as the greatest'
athlete of the day and who rolled up'
morepotnts at the Olympic meet held
last summer in Stockholm, waB declared a profesisonal by the American
Athletic Association at Its sitting held
this afternoon. Damaging evidence
was given against tbe Indian ln a
letter whicb charged him with playing professional baseball.
The letter admitted that Thorpe
had played baseball for a salary on a
profesional tea** three years ago,
while a rtndent at the Carlisle Indian
school, but said that on the same team
there were several northern eoUeg*
men who were regarded as amateurs
| and Thorpe did not realize that hlr
I participation was wrong. Thorpe admitted that he did not play for tbe
money he earned but fer the love of
the game."
Thorpe's winning of the Pentathlon
and Decathlon events at the Olympic
games In Stockholm and later the wonderful performance which won for
him the all-round championship of the
A. A. I'., at Celtic Park last Septem-
ler, had stamped him the moat marvellous all-round athlete of modern
times. In addition his prowess as a
football player had eanred for blm last
season unanimous choice of leading
sporting writers the position of halfback In the all-American football team
for 1912.
All the prises and the honors which
Thorpe haa gained since 1909���tbe
date from which his standing as a
professional begins���must be transferred through the officials of the Aam-
teur Athletic union to the man who
finished second to the Indian in every

Charley Duncan; on Wednesday,.
Banty Lewis, an 'American, and -Char
les Lepron, a French boxer,, are tc

Thursday night a Frenchman named
Clement will be pitted against Kid

All of the men are fairly good boxers, although the Italians cannot ex-;

No more enthaslastlo boxing fans
can be found anywhere than In
France, although the game is of comparatively recent Introduction la tbat
country, and there Is no reason why
the sport should not become popular
In Italy. Moreover, If fisticuffs should
become popular In that land. It may

their fists and less on knives In settling personal difficulties. Not a few

The London Telegraph says: in
true Imperial sport there can be no
bitterness in defeat, and nobody
grudges the South African Rugby footballers the triumph they achieved at
Twickenham on Saturday, when they
beat England by 9 points to 3.
Divested of the purely technical details of the game, which appeals so
intimately to the sport-loving thousands of both hemispheres, this result
represents a great deal for our fellow-
members of the Empire. Other colonial teams have preceded them on
tours in the British Isles, but none
like the present "Springboks" have
escaped defeat in their International
matches.
Six years ait South Africa sent over
a great team, bu'. it bowed the knee to i
Scotland, and could only draw with
England.
A Record.
The side which has Just fini hed Its
tour so far as we are concerned���
there Is a match with France at Bordeaux next Saturday���hold a record;
they have won all along the line ln
their international games.
Scotland's pride was humbled by 16
points at Edinburgh, a score of 38
points was registered against the mercurial Hibernians at Dublin, and gallant little Wales was beaten, but not
subdued, by 3 points at Cardiff.
England alone found tbe secret of
penetrating what seemed to be an invulnerable defence, but the Springboks possess the international record
of four wins and an aggregate score of
66 points to 3.
Even the famous "All Blacks," the
greatest Rugby team ot all, could not
equal thle!'
A Fine Body of Men.
The South Africans' success hae
been raore physical than Intellectual.
In the purely subtle phases of the
game they can hardly approach the
Welshmen, and for" dashing" entti'
prlee ot method they do not equal,
perhaps, the English players. But
they are literally giants of the game
sons of Anak, almost every one of
them. Their extraordinary size,
weight, strength and speed gave them
undeniable advantage over the less-
favored players of these ielea. Their
forwards are probably the finest body
of men that have ever been seen on
the rugby field, and for the reatthey
showed a readiness to assimilate tbe
lessons,which a tour lasting months:
obviously affords.
At present South Africa are the
champions of the rugby worlil, and
the prowess of their chosen men is s
consoling sequel to the sad failure of
their cricketers In the Ill-fated Triangular Tests of last summer..
The great hold which rugby football haa on the community was evidenced In the'enormous crowd which
gathered at Twickenham. The Rugby
Union headquarters are not exactly
convenient for the dwellers tn town,
but there were nearly 40,000 spectators, who were rewarded wltb a game
that was slways Interesting' and at
times dramatic.
The.English Try.
The sensational try gained for England by the old Oxford captain, R. W.
Poulton, will live long in the memory.
England scored first but one of the
scores from an Intercepted pass, and
later on Douglas Morkel, by two extraordinary kicks, registered penalty
goals that won the match.
It was appropriate that D. Morkel
should do this. In the absence of Millar and Dobbin, the captain and vice-
captain, he led the South African team
to victory. He alone of the 30 players engaged, figured In the 'match
against England In 1906.
The great deeds of the Springboks
will live long ln tbe history of rugby.

extent that they have no balance and
uo restraint. So serious ban this become that the whole question la likely to be taken up by the lackey club.
An interesting point In thla connection Is tbat many trainers declare
young apprentice Jockeys, who are
entitled to a handicap allowance, if
r:d!ng at 84 pounds or under, are not
strong enough to ride the "American" Beat This is almost universally
adopted today ln English racing stables. In other words, owners will only trust tbelr horses to the American
Danny Maher, or to his rival Wooton,
who, by tbe way, is not English born.
The competition tor Matter's services
results In enormous fees. One well
known sporting authority says:
"Many owners snd trainers are
seriously concerned at tbe moderate
talent at their command, but It may
be raid that where all are bad all are
good, or ln other words, that nobody
can claim any advantage over anyone else. That would be all right:
were Wooton and Maher out of the
way and it ls the ability of these two
riders which show up the barren nature of the land so tar as England la
concerned.
Trainers to  Blame.
"I cannot help thinking that trainers  are  partly  to blame,  and  that
they  do not make, tbe most  ot  the
talent at tbelr command.   Of course
trainers bave to consider the interests of their patrons, and it is not,
every owner w"ao would appreciate a,
stable Jockey being up on his horses.
There should be some way, however,
out of this difficulty, and 1 have no
doubt ways and means could be found
of giving many of tbe most promising boys more practice ln public.
"It has truthfully been said that a
good apprentice is often the best
horseman ln the stable, and the earning capacity of a capable lad was recently shown In the case of W. Hux-!
ley, who had one retaining fee of
$5000."
So serious is the deficiency, that lt
Is now proposed to give the 5 pound
apprentice allowance only to Jockeys
who ride for their own stables and
to Institute more races in which only
apprentices can  ride.
Bam Darling:, tti* famous trainer.
with a quite natural dislike ot American Innovations, Says:        '������>'���
"I do hope something will be done: s>
to give us better Jockeys. I have *
never known such a lack of talent In *
the pigskin ln my time as at present. *
I dd not think it ls at ail favorable ,*
tor the boys to ride as short as they *
do now", especially to begin with. They | s>
tnust be depending entirely on their \*
horse's mouth to keep their balance, j ���
and very much more so    for    boys

by several experts.
It has he��-n deemed advisable to arrange the tests in four groups, within
each of which the candidate would
have to pass one or ln some eases two
testa. The following groups slave been
proposed:
Group 1 (a) Gymnastics similar to
tbe tests required from men, but with
somewhat modified tables, (b) Swimming over 100-160 metres, without any
time limit. This test, for choice,
should be compulsory, but aa the lack
of water In parts ot Sweden makes
swimming practice difficult, lt may
have to be made optional to substitute
gymnastics.

than 10 centimetres; (b) long Jump,
2.6-3 m.; (c) running, 60 metres, maximum time 11 seconds; (d) running,

London, Jan. 27.���The first exhibition of the "Society ot Humorous
Art," now to be seen at the Goupll
gallery, has proved not only a great
success, but ls responsible for a suggestion which may have no little bearing upon illustrated publications both
in England and America. All the
great black and white artists are exhibiting their best efforts at humor.
A critic  has  boldly  asked:
"Why can't you draw pictures without a label? Why don't your drawings make us laugh without having
to read the jokes underneath them?
In Germany they do this. The principal funny pictures in 'Simpliclssl-
mus' are published with nothing be
neath them but the artist's name."
It Is suggested that the written Joke
should be banished so that the illustration can tell its own tale. As all
the leading artists are represented
at this exhibition I asked Raven-HIU,
the famous Punch artist, whose cartoons have far more influence on European politics than editorials ln "The
Times''���what he thought about lt.
"It hits the nail on the head," said
Raven-Hill. "Whenever I see a joke
of mine quoted without the drawing
being reproduced I know the picture
must have been poor. The test of
the humorous artist is that his Jok-i
cannot be disassociated from his draw
ing���in other words, the drawing's
the thing. More often than not the
words are, or ought to be, superfluous.
Should Need No Legend.
Douglas Almond, another well
known illustrator, member of the Royal institute of water colors and of
oil paintings, whose humorous sketch
es have attracted much more atten
tlon at the exhibition, writes me as
follows:
"There Is no doubt that a humor
dus drawing should need no legend
as a rule.
"But, custom In England has led
to the use of an explanatory line or
lines below the drawing. The artistic expression of humor is hambered
in this country by the 'conveniences'

DEPLORABLE WAGES
FOR FRENCH GIRLS
Work   of  Toughest���Ten   to  -bi<teen
Hours a Day���Recompense $30
a Month.
Paris, Jan. 27.���A good deal of public attention has been concentrated
here on the position of the young
French girl who is left without any
support  by  her parents.
M. Brieux first raised the problem
by his play "La Femme Seule," and
in order to give point to his bitter
picture of what betel the ordinals* woman left suddenly to her own -resources, a little Parisian bourgeolse was
despatched by a newspaper here to
seek for 4S hours throughout the best
quarters ln Paris for a place, offering
her services to big ladles' tailors in
the Rue de la Paix; next to a bank
as correspondent in French and English and Spanish; and thirdly to the
emporium of fashion as saleswoman.
The tailor would not take her because she had no experience. The
bank tested her knowledge of three
languages and noted her name, telling
her the salary was thirty dollars a
month and two bonuses a year. At
the Btore she was offered $15 a month
her luncheon and a commission on
sales.
A lady of more mature years took
up this typical hunt for employment,
and furnished with letter cf recommendation from famous senators and
lawyers, pretended Bhe was a widow
with a family, and applied for posts
at hotels and a tavern.
But she never found anything better than the examples quoted, which
seem to show that a brilliantly educated woman in Paris can scarcely
hope for an average of more than $30 J Shabby
a month for from 10 to 16 hours a
day of the toughest sort of labor.
HUNGRY COYOTES.   n
AND WOLVES BUSY
Depredating Herds of Cattle   on    Alberta Ranges���Old Timers Get
New Experiences.
Macgratli, Sask., Jan. 27.���Riders
coming in from the ranges, particularly those employed on tlie Mclntyre
ranch, south of Macgrath, report the
presence of wolves and coyotes
among, the herds, and assert that they
are making serious Inroads among the
cattle.   ',
Old timers declare that never In
their recollection have they seen the
coyotes as ferocious as they are this
year.
On the Mclntyre ranch several of
the wolves have already been killed.
There is, however, one very old beast
left, and he Is leading a band of thirty coyotes wltb a cunning and a ferocity which has meant sudden death
for not a few cattle. Tbe band sallies
forth at night and attacks smal lherds
in unlikely spots.
The leader selects a victim, which
he catches and hamstrings, and then
the pack sets on the unfortunate animal and devours It. The depredations
of the pack are becoming serious and
a determined effort Is being made to
secure the destruction of the leader.

Berlin, Jan. 27.���The German who

of curiosity in Berlin, although conditions that make what America calls
the "self-made man" are ln Germany

son of a mechanic remains a mechanic, and a cobbler's son Is likely to

sons and daughters of his father's patrons.
A different story has to bo told
about Sergeant-Major Hauschlldt, attached to the command of the Berlin
district. Hauschlldt, without the special standing or money that could
justify him ln taking up an officer's
career, entered the army as a private, and by excellent service was
promoted to the rank of Sergeant-major.
He matriculated at the University
of Berlin, and between drills found
time to attend lectures on a number
of subjects, particularly economics.
Upon his transfer later he attended
lectures at the university of Munster
and he has Just passed the necessary
examination as doctor of political
science. His thesis for the degree
treated the social problems of sea
fishery.
The average German under officer
is noted rather for his overbearing
manner and tone and lack of refinement than for any praiseworthy quality except ability to drill recruits.
That one of his number is now entitled to be caled "Herr Doctor Sergeant Major" Hauschlldt, Is as Interesting as It is unusual.

This Year's Crop of Wheat Has Taken
$70,000,000 Worth of Plant
Food from North Dakota.
Grand Forks .N.D.. Jan. 27���Re
markable facts regarding agriculture
in the northwest were presented In
a Btrlkiug manner by the president of
the North Dakota Agricultural College
at a recent gathering of the trt-state
grain growers.
"Agriculture in the newer sections
Is carried on at the expense of the
fertility In the soil," he declsred. "A
twenty bushel crop of wheat removes
from tbe soil In straw and grain $9.30
cents worth of plant food per acre,
cr 46 1,2 cents per bushel, ln selling
wheat and In burning the straw this
is actually removed.
This year's crop of wheat, 160,000,-
000 bushels, has removed from the
soil of the state $70,000,000 worth of
plant food. In other words, the state
of North Dakota Is worth less as a
crop factor by $70,000,000 than before
the past season's crop of wheat was
grown. Add to this all other grain
raised and the total will be -much Increased.
"lt has also been found by the tinted States department of agriculture
that the cost of producing a bushel
of wheal is 58 cents. Adding this to
the 66 1-2 cents the commercial value
of the plant food removed in a bushel
of wheat la $1.04 1-2. As for a remedy
of the robbing of the soil, the speaker urged the keeping of live stock.

Four   Sovereigns Will   Visit   France
During Next Two Years���Society
Interested.
Paris, Jan. 27.���Society ls much
more Interested lu the wife ot the new
chief magistrate than lt Is ln M. Polncare himself. Under the constitution
the wife of the president has no title.
She Is a simple citoyene without official recognition, ln actual fact she
takes her place as "Madame la Presl-
dente."
In the eyes of the French people Bhe
is the mllsreEs of the house of France
snd must combine feminine grace
with democratic dignity at the receptions and tbe Elysse Palace. During
the next two years no less than four
royal sovereigns will visit Paris, to
say nothing cf the leaser luminaries.
Hence the Importance of the position. During the 40 years of the Third
Republic the unsuitability of the wives
of certain political candidates has ltd
to the rejection of their lords.
Mme. MacMahon, wife of the second
president, probably was the most notable rucccEB, she realizing a type, of
the grand lady of the aristocracy.
A brief reign of Mme. Casmir-
Pierre was equally brilliant and her
saloon was Invariably filled with the
wits of her day.
Mme. Felix Faure preferred to leave
tht duties of hostess largely to ber
daughter, now Mme. Gogau, who introduced a new spirit into the palace.
Intellectual conversation was tbe rule
and frivolity found no place there.
Witt Mme. Loubet's entree the old
and simple regime was renewed and
Mme. Fallerles has carried lt on.
With the ever Increasing Influx of
foreigners the duties of a president's
wife become more and more difficult
for entertainments are demanded in
constant succession and powera of endurance became aa important as
charm, tact and otber social qualities.
I^ndon, Jan. 27.���A wealthy American, gentleman staying in London has
been the v mcitlshldr hrdl hrdlhrdlsbr
been the victim of a series of extraordinary daring thefts, as the result
of which he has lost -some very valuable documents, relating to estates
m Ireland.
The gentleman tn question is H. L.
Brittain, of New York, who, In addition to being Interested in sevewil
prominent American enterprises, is
treasurer to the Granite Spring Water company. He ls also actively Interested tn valuable estates near Dublin. It Is around the latter that ths
amazjng series of thefts Is centered.
Mr. Brittain sailed from New York
on the Mauretania towards the end of
November, arriving at Fishguard on
December 2. He brought with him a
large consignment fit .luggage. In
certain trunks were documents relating to estates near Dublin. At Fishguard, when Mr. Brittain was leaving
the boat, he made a startling discovery. The identification letter on all
his trunks and portmanteaus bad
been substituted, and ln this way part
of his luggage had been "claimed."
The matter was at once reported to
the police, and, shortly after his arrival In London, Mr. Brittain had the
missing trunks returned to him. They
had been broken open and the contents ransacked.
At first lt appealed to be an ordinary luggage theft, hut when Mr. Brittain came to examine the contents of
the trunks he found them to be almost intact.
They consisted of articles of clothing, and these had been pressed into
the trunks after an evidently fruitless search. It now became apparent
Ihat the objective of the thieves was
the documents relating to the estates
n Ireland. In this connection, Mr.
Brittain states, litigation is pending,
and the documents therefore were of
great importance to himself.
He consequently kept a closer
watch than ever over the documents.
Mr. Brittain had occasion to journey to Dublin the other night ln connection with the estates and the documents In question were placed ln a
securely fastened portmanteau and
trunk
at Fishguard be personally took
charge of his luggage at Huston. He
had, however to make an inquiry, and.
Instead of being away a few seconds.
as he had anticipated, he waa detained about fifteen minutes owing to
the congestion of the holiday traffic.
When he returned to his luggage
he found that the additional padlock
and staples by which the portmanteau
was eecured had: been forced off, and
the contents ransacked, while the rear
part or the trunk had been ripped
open
SPAIN TO 6ENEEIT
BY fRENCH CLEQiON
King    Alfonso    Ready    to    Welcome
Overtures for Entente from
Premier Polncare.
Madrid, Jan. 27.���The election of
the French premier, Haymond Poln-
caire, to the presidency, may lead to
a more frelndly relation, perhaps eveu
to a mild aort of alliance, between
France and Spain, it was believed iu
diplomatic circles here today.
Optimists look for an entente, with
a freedom of latitude, as is at present
the case lu the entente cordiale between France and Great Britain.
Some months ago Premier Polncare
voted a desire for such an understanding, in view of the fact that
Spain and France were to be neighbors In Morocco as well as on tho
continent, and but sentiment was
echoed by the prime minister of
Spain.
Spain, threatened by a revolution
tbat has a republic for its goal, is said
to desire ss many friends and helpers
as possible, and lt is said that King
Alfonso will welcome overtures from
President Pplncare.
