majority of 37.
Introduces Discussion.
Mr. Verville, of Maissolieuve, again
Introduced a discussion of tin* Nanaimo labor trouble. He spoke at some
length and concluded with a motion
of censure of the minister of labor.
Mr. Verville said that he was surprise d at the nature of the correspondence labled relating to this dispute, The strlkim? feature of the
corn spondence, he said, was not what
it contained, but what was omitted.
The trouble broke out on September
IT,.  1912,    (in September  19 the m-en
was  required of  them  and  the  min-
p-.-evlous speaker claimed that both
sides of this case had never been set
forth, but there was never a case
which had been presented in a better
manner than this case by the minister during the previous discussion
in the house.
Res��nts Criticisms.
Mr. Morphy resented the criticisms
of Mackenzie and Mann. These men.
he said, had built 6000 miles of railway in Canada and history would put
them down as great railway pioneers.

Mayor Gray when seen last night by The News, stated that he could

proposed arrangement would be submitted to the entire council for its
approval or rejection. Alderman Annandale, chairman of the harbor committee, was in the same vein although stating that he saw no reason why

Another point of criticism advanced
liy   Mr.  Verville  was    that    for    five
months subsequent u> May s, 1913,
practically nothing appeared on   tha
r* < ord relating to the strike. The
only letter was one from the Wfie*
ir.ry of s:r William Mackenzie who
volunteered that lhs men realised
mat they had made a mistake and
ihe union would be broken up It ap
peered as though the minister was reiving on this information and he ex-

National Honor.
The president holds tbat the national honor of the American people
is at stake, and that European nations should not be allowed to get
the impression thai treaties made by
the American government are not adhered to both in letter and in spirit.
The exemption clause, he points out,
was passed on the assumption that
while the Hay-Pauncefote treaty guarantees equal treatment to all nations
in the question of tolls, ihe document
was to be interpreted as meaning all
nations  except the  United  States.
The president believes there should
be no debatable ground on treaties

Open   Fight  in   Earnest.
The message to congress will open
the tight on the Panama tolls question in earnest. Senator O'Gorman,
chairman of 'he inter-oceanic canal3
committee, is expected to oppose the
president's views. Lately it has been
said that a majority of the committee
would favor a repeal. The White
House is confident that in both
bouses of congress the re#eul will be
passed, Republicans joining Democrats in making the change.

good idea any way and it's a wonder it hasn't been put
into general practice before now.
Briefly, the Minneapolis plan is to combine school
work and house chores for children, giving the youngsters
credit in school reports for wood split, dishes washed and
other little odd jobs done at home. At first glance it looks
like the closest link yet forged to concentrate the education and upbringing of the child.
If the result aimed at in teaching children at school
and training them at home is the common one to make
good men and women, then it would appear that any move
which would tend to draw closer together the two courses
of instruction would be a step in the right direction and,
after being viewed in this light, the Minneapolis plan is
entitled to more than passing consideration.
Too often the boy or girl attending school thinks that
his or her full task is well done if a high standing is gained
in studies and in these days of higher education and specialized instruction it is often the case that the child considers it a piece of imposition to be asked to do anything
about the house.
Education along such lines is one-sided. In the first
lace it fails to teach the child responsibility and in the
second it fosters selfishness, with which quality most children are plentifully enough endowed without requiring
encouragement. Therefore, any plan which would tenci
to impress a child with his or her responsibilities and gen-;
erate in the juvenile mind the habit of thinking for others
would be a help and not a detriment to school training

A plan with this end In view was
announced today by B. II. Jackson,
assistant superintendent, who said he
would recommend tbe system to the
educational committee of the school
"A boy should be given credits at
school for looking after Che furnace
and a girl for making the beds and
cooking for her mother as well as for
doing sums in arithmetic accurately

"School work and home work
should be more definitely united,

HARD TIMES! A prominent advertiser who spends a fortune every
year in publicity has established a
significant rule. Whenever he notices a slowing up of business he increases
his advertising. This is the reason: "When
business is booming it is unnecessary to
fight for it���it comes of itself; but when
business is slow I insist on having my share
of it, and the easiest way to get it is by calling attention to my goods. I do not wait for
hard times. I scent them in the distance,
and before anybody else gets busy I make
my contracts for advertising on a'big scale
and get my orders in before my competitors
know what I am doing." The logic and common sense of the attitude of this gentleman
account in large part for the remarkable
success he has achieved

that her vote was absolutely uninfluenced by the presence in court of
Nance's wife and baby, and rested
wholly on the lack of evidence.

new precedent which has attracted
considerable attention in motoring circles. It wat stated in court tbat the
chauffeur had often used the car for
his own purposes, and on one occasion lie accepted an engagement from
a gentleman and two ladies to drive
them to Guilford for a guinea. The
charge on which the conviction was
made was one of "stealing petrol."

Last week Miss Knowlton received
i blank from a recently endowed
eastern college enclosed with a letter asking her if she felt like donating something to the college. Feeing no particular interest in the school.
Mtss Knowlton threw the blank into
the waste paper basket.
Yesterday she received an effusive
letter from the college thanking her
lor her munificent donation and asking "as a matter of curiosity." why
ho had not filled out the blank herself.
Surprised beyond measure, she began to question members of her
rinss. At : ��� i |i devi >ped that one
of the small boys, seeing her throw
the blank into tin- basket, together
with the addresaed envelope, had rescued it and filled it out with the generous   sum   of   $10,000,   industriously

Burnaby   Ratepayers  Discuss Actions
of Council���Also   Protest  Dual
A  resolution  asking  the  municipal
council to  place  Itself ou  record    In
respect  to  the  question  of  municipal
I employees   holding   a   dual     position
was passed at a meeting of the Cen-
i tral  Hurnaby  Ratepayers'  association
j last night. The association previously
| complained   to   the   council   of   H.
Burnes   occupying   tin*   positions     of
I municipal electrician and school trus-
I tee and a reply was forwarded by the
council  to  the  effect   that   since  the
I school board bad been declared illegal
the unit ter wns out of iheir hands.
Delegates to the meeting termed
the council's reply as most evasive
and unsatisfactory and they ask for
a direct expression of opinion from
tin* council on the question.
The action of the council in ordering a cut in the police estimates was
not indorsed und a motion was passed against the cut in police supervision    which    the    delegates thought
would be detrimental to the policing
of the municipality.
The decision of the council to further the waterworks system was endorsed.

The line of talk which Kev. J. W.
Aikeens, pastor of the Metropolitan ,
church, Toronto. toe;k In his address
was to point out thai tbe relations
between the church and the wage
earners is a close one. Contrary to
the opinion held by some people, the ;
church or religion has got a great deal
to do with successful business.
Rev. Mr. Aikens held that the cross
of   Christ   represents   the     principles
that govern the world.
"The  church  too,    is    also    doing
��� much to bear    the    burdens    of    the

Budapest, March 3 -A woman's hat
led to a fatal duel here last week. A

with liis wife about a neve hat she had
purchased. The wife appealed to her
brother, an aviator, named Lieut. Ma

so and was insulted by the husband.
The .'lieutenant thereupon challenged
lie* lawyer to fight a duel, and Bab-
acsay accepted. The husband is not
a duellist, but happened to hll bis
