When the house went Into eommit-

I ment, the minister was asked for particulars with regard to the labor dif-
! ficulties on Vancouver island. Mr.
jCrotbtrs said that tbe first intimation
Iof the trouble came in the form of a
press dispatch on Sept. 18, 1912, stat-
I ing that on the 16th, 1500 men had
j gone on strike at the Cumberland
i mines. A telegram was at once sent

war office was always adopting fads
and  the  new figure
of them.
Major San) Sharp mildly criticized
ihe minister for his proposed action
while F. B, Carvel) strongly approved. Me said that the- minister had
bi em too magnanimous in offering to
supply the British marksmen with the
Koss rifle.

was at once sent to Vancouver to se-

Ho said that the report made by
Commissioner Price was cut off the
day the rioting commenced; that the
situation was glossed over in the labor gazette and the minister, the labor gazette and everybody concerned
should go.
Mr. Crothers replied with heat. He

intimated tbat he proposed to deal

Mr. Crothers.
At   the   suggestion  of  Hon.  Robert
Rogers,  who  was  leading  th-j house,
.Sir Wilfrid Laurler agreed to postpone ;
his  comments  until   a   later sitting, j
en'.ly opposed to unions generally. Yet
another effort was made by Deputy
Minister Ackland in November, 1913,
but he also found ft utterly Impossible to bring the two parties together.
F. B. Carbell strongly criticized the
course which had been followed by
the minister, lie contended that save
for the sending of a telegram there
had becu no action until the whole is

eiuoted from the labor gazette of May,

there came the mos! serious labor

Crashes Into Freight
Ottawa. Feb. 6.���While no official
confirmation can bo obtained here
to support the persistent rumor that
Sir Hugh Graham, proprietor of the
Montreal Star and other Montreal papers, is to be the new Canadian high
commission to London, it Is generally
understood that mention of Sir Hugh's
name ln this connection comes from
authoritative circles and it is altogether likely that the post In the old
country will go to him should he decide to accept.
Only a few days ago Premier Borden stated that the government would
not be in a hurry to fill the position
left vacant by the death of Lord
Strathcona. but this announcement
does not prevent the premier and his
colleagues sounding likely commissionership timber and It is confidently believed in inner government circles that Sir Hugh Graham has been
approached and has signified his willingness to take on the duties in London.
It is believed here that nothing will
be done towards filling the vacancy
for some time in order to allow undesirable party applicants to cool off in
their chase after the plum and that
later, when other affairs have more
or lers dwarfed Interest In the matter, the big Montreal newspaper owner will be gazetted to the post.

Veiled suggestions have teen made
without their origin being known, that
it would be a good stroke of busl-
nes for Premier Borden to give the
position to Sil Wilfrid Laurier in recognition cf his services to the Dominion and~as a means of removing
him from the opposition benches in
the house. However, it is doubtful If
Sir Wilfrid would accept the appointment and it Is felt In Conservative I
quarters that his opposition to Premier Borden's naval aid bill disqualifies bim fof rece-iving an appointment

bandits, the burning of a passenger
train and the wrecking of the big
Cumbre tunnel, posses are being formed tn the Guerrero district to assist

One posse Ib reported to consist of
cowboys from the HcartB ranch. Railroad employes and men from the Madera Lumber company's plant are
said to be umong those who have volunteered to assist In the hunt.
From Madera came a rumor which
was generally discredited, that when
the passenger train was sent crshlng
Into the burning tunnel, the posseng
e rs, including the Americans, were
looked inside the cars and perished.
In previous exploits of tho kind

Clark, superintendent of the Chihua

Madera to investigate the wholo occurrence, was eagerly awaited.
The railroad from Eagle Pass to the
City of Mexico, via Torreon, where
tho next big battle is expected to
take place, was reported open today.

rioting, was dropped by the jury and
a conviction registered only for un- j
lawful assembly.
The defence did not put any wit-1
lesses into the box and the crown
testimony resembled very much that
given in* the Bill English trial the I
day before. By noon the court work
in the case was complete and it was
left to the jury who, after having
lunch, deliberated until three o'clock.
After the prisoner had been remanded for sentence, court adjourned
until Monday morning at 11:30 o'clock.
Washington, Feb. 6.���President
Wilson's expressed desire for repeal
of the provision of the Panama canal
act which exempts American coastwise ships from tolls, it was apparent
tonight, will precipitate spirited debate in both houses of congress when
the bill to carry out the suggestion
is submitted.
Senators and representatives discussed the situation informally today,
but no move was made on the subject. Aotion probably will come first
from the houBe interstate and foreign
commerce commission in the form of
a bill to repeal the toll exemption provision. Representative Adamson. the
chairman of the committee, probably
will Introduce the bill next week. He
is awaiting word from the president
before acting.
Although the repeal is proposed in
the face of a plank in the Baltimore
platform of the Democratic party, the
discussion of that phase of the pro-
posel reversal of policy is not expected to be as extended as the influence
of the contemplated action upon foreign relations. Senate Democratic
leaders plan to await action in the
house before taking up the president's
suggestion, but the forthcoming de
bate on the general arbitration treaty
with Great Britain, which soon Is to
come up in executive session* undoubtedly will provoke discussion on
the subject.
A Dear Price?
That opposition to the repeal will
develop in the house Interstate commerce committee was indicated today
by Represcentative Knowland of California, a member of the committee,
who declared:
"We are paying a dear price for the
friendship ot   Great    Britain,    even
though it may help us out in Mexico.
The   bill   will,   I   #elaTct,   precipitate one of the most spirited debates
which Jiaa been heard In congress tor
yearB, and will provoke a free and trull
discussion of our present foreign policy."
Senator O'Gorman, chairman of *Uie
inter-oceanic canals committee, who
associated the announcement of President Wilson's decision that he proposed to fight against repeal of the
tolls provision to .he last ditch, does
not anticipate any consideration of tiie
repeal by bis committee until the subject has been disposed of in the house.

Among those who have not followed closely the case
of Robert G. Bremner, the United States congressman
who spent one hundred thousand dollars on radium treatment lor cancer and then died, the outcome of Mr. Brem-
ner's vain battle for life will be taken as an argument for
the relegation to the discards of radium as a cancer cure.
It is unfortunate for the medical profession in the experiments which it has conducted with radium that Mr.
Brenmcr's case gained such wide publicity onlytd end in
failure. Confidence in a cure is almost essential to the
complete success of that cure and public confidence in
radium will be shaken by the result ot the Bremner experiment, simply because the general public will not take the
trouble to make itself conversant with all the facts of the
ease. The outstanding features that radium was applied
and that Bremner died of cancer will be all that will linger
in the public mind, while the attending conditions, which
made the fight for the congressman's life a losing one
from the start, will be quickly forgotten, if ever they were
noted at all.
The late Mr. Bremner had for four years been a sufferer from cancer, which, when he underwent the radium
treatment, had reached such a stage that, according to attending physicians, only a miracle could have saved him.
This he was told and, if the reports sent out are to be believed, in full possession of the facts he took radium, not
to save his life, since he knew that was practically impossible, but to prolong it to the limit. In the end he died,
leaving behind him in the records of his case, not an example of the futility of radium as a cancer cure, but an
illustration of its efficacy in prolonging life in the face
of the dreaded disease.
For the good of the human race it is to be hoped that
the medical men will be able to place radium in the position of a recognized cure for cancer, but till' it is either
approved of or discredited after exhaustive experiments,
it should not be condemned.
Burnaby isn't the only place where they have warm

the necessary bylaw t-.i authorize such
a flotation; but, while the bills have
been prepared and forwarded to tbe
London agents e,f the Dominion
Securities company, the latter the
city's fiscal agents, there will now
be no necessity for tills short term
loan, in view of the disposal of one-

The offer was discussed yesterday
morning at. a special meeting of ihe
finance committee, other members oi
the board also being Invited, What.
ti on ��� ��as Becured is uot disclosed,
but thai il is much belter than the
last prices quoted to the city is acknowledged.
The last council decided that it
would not issue any of the waterworks debentures at les sthan 90, although an offer of 88 1*2 had been
receiv ei. Tlu* present council in view
of the improving condition of the market did not believe that even HO was
a satisfactory figure. The present
bond issue will be made at a figure
which will net the city probably be
tween ill aud 92, or between 95 and
96 on the London market, the cost of
flotation being approximately 4 per
By the flotation of this issue $750.-
000 will be provided for the carrying
cut of the work on the steel pressure
pipe line between Humpback reservoir and the city.
Concrete   Pipe   Line.
There will also be sufficient money
to meet the cost of the construction
of the concrete pipe line between the
lake an dllumpback reservoir, this latter work having been let to the Pa-
fic Lock Joint Pipe company, with
which arrangements had been made
whereby the contractor would furnish $100,000 to finance the work until such time as the city disposed of
its waterworks bonds. In view of
the flotation this arrangement need
not be carried out, a^d the city will
be able to supply the money at a
rate considerably less than the 6 per
cent which it was arranged should be
paid to tiie Pacific Lock Joint Pipe
company for the $100,000 the company  was to advance.
The last sale of long-term debenture's, effected by the city was early
last year when bonds to the amount
of f2,:i50,000 were dispesed of at 95
flat in London or 91 here, plus interest which brought the net l'.gur?
to the  city to about  IC  1*2.
en  High  Buildings.
Minneapolis, Feb. 6.���Height cf
Minneapolis skyscrapers will be re
strict! d to a certain number cf feet
or stories in au ordinance now being
drafted by J. Q. Houghton, city build
ing inspector at tin' request of Alderman Josiah Chase,
Ordinances restricting tho height ot
business buildings in all large cities
are being studied and two plans ci
regulations  are   being  considered.
The first is simply to limit the-
height to a certain number of leet oi
stories. This is not favored at this
lime us Mr. Houghton believes struc
Hires on narrow streets should not be
allowed to go up as high as those on
wider thorough fares,
Like Washington Liw.
The other plan is similar to that
contained in the building regulai ions
of Washington, D.C��� where ths width
of the streets is taken into consideration lu fixing tile height of buildings.
On the- ordinary business streets Hie
limit is fixed at 110 feel, while on
streets 160 leet wide', a height of 130
feet is allowed. Spires, domes and
towers are allowed to go higher upon
approval of the district commissioners. Tiie plan suggested for Mlnnea
polis is to regulate the height by al
lowing buildings to go no higher in
feet than twice* the widtli of the street
This may be reduced to one and one-
half times the width of the thoroughfares or increased to two and one-
half times.
Can't  Have Gotham  Kind.
The ordinance if passed will forever
prevent the erection in Minneapolis of
any structures similar to the gi'PBt
skyscrapers of New York, where the
Woolworth building and Metropolitan
tower are approximately 55 and 44
stories  high.
The first floor of an office building
is usually between 15 and 20 feet in
height, while the other floors vary
from lu to 14 feet. A building 150
feet high would allow of 10 to 15
stories, while one 200 feet high could
have from 15 to 19 stories. A building 250 feet high might be constructed so as to include as many as 23
Stories, but it is likely that the Minneapolis limit will not be over 200
"Light and air for adjoining buildings are the things we are consider
ing in this ordinance," Mr. Houghton
said today, and that is the only reason for such a measure. We don't
limit the height of buildings becaus-
we fear there is danger of i^oinp
so high they may topple over in case
of an earthquake."

lien, hard a', work preparing for the
competition, success in which wHll
entitle it lo first place among all Canadian teams for the trophy emblematic of the championship of Canada.
The ti sts included demonstrations
by t'.ie police team ln practical work!
as well as in 111.' theory of first aid.

(ral Interest shows in British Columbia iu the work of the St. John's Ambulance Association," stateed Lieutenant Colonel Hodgeis after the examination was concluded. "There is much
wide,* interest and more enthusiaiin
shown iu this province than in any
other province of the Dominion, and i
1 believe this is e:wi:ig to two things,
first to the individual enthusiasm of
the teams and t'.ie interest shown in
tiie work liy your prominent citizens,
���ml secondly to the practical interest
which the province has shown to the
useful work by the provincial grant
cf $1000 to the B. C. branch ot the association. Tho provincial competitions in which t'.ie Victoria team have
carried off honors during tie past two
years have also done much to stimulate ii.l.rest. Tiie efficiency of the
British Columbia entrants in team
work lias been meat gratifying to me
and shows the earnest study the mem-
I'ers of the teams have given to tin
work. I want to gfty that, the interest shown by your B'ritlf'j Columbia
centres in lirst a!d wotk puts the old
er provinces to shame."
Dominion-Wide Contest.
Lieutenant Colonel Hodgets explained feat the competitions originated
through the' Interest taken in first-aid
work, by Hon. Wallace Nesbitt, for-
tin .-ly one of the judges of the supreme
couri of Canada. He presented three
trophies, one for competition among
teams of railroad employees; one for
general teams, including police, civilians, miners, etc., and one for second
cadets, the prize in tho lattl r being
the ltoss rifles, te: be given year'y tn
���he winning team. The interest in
'irrt aid wo.k litis been greatly stimulated by the competitions and is ra-
���cdly growing throughout the country
md espi dally in the west.
Lieutenant colonel Hodgets started
���n his examining tour at Toronto a
wee!-- ago last Monday. T'.iere two
teams were examined, then three at
Montreal. At Winnipeg two teams
were examined, one of the members
of the fire brigade, and thence the ex-
amlner came to Kamloops, no teams
being entered from any point in Alberta or Saskatchewan. Kamloops
;���:*.,I Vancouver teams were examined
i a Monday a-..l Tuesday. With the
examination of tin* Nanaimo and Wellington t.ams today the 1911 competl-
tlon will be compii ti d.
In the competition ben* team work
wan first Indulged In, the bandaging
and stretcher work being oai. icd out
In   ��� ������ it del ill.   Afterwards the individual members of t'.ie team were examined in theory, Lieutenant Colonel
lindeeits   citing   a suppositious   case]
where a policeman mig'it be called to
deal with a case of injury, and e,)ies-
trninvr the members of the team on
the courpo which would lie followed.
For r..a ly two hours every phase   of
firrt   aid   work  was  considered,    and
while  the  individual  members of the
team afterwards Btated the examination had been a most thorough one.
they were loud in their praises of the
manner in  wTaich the test had bean
carried < n by Ltautensarl colonel Hod-
gets ard confident that tbey had made
a. good showing.    The publication of
final rcsull    a.    now being anxious!)  awaited.

B. SMITH has a dry goods store in a certain Canadian City. He does ��� <ood business, but wants
to do more. He believes that Advertising in his local newspaper is the
way to get more business. So I ; advertises-every now and then.
This is where our frirnd Smith is wro��t/-in advertising every now and
then. He should ad\ ertise rcgularly-as frequently as his local newspaper
is published.
Smith seys he wants to advertise regularly, but he can t always find the time
to prepare advertisements, which is true, for he is his own buyer, sales-
manager, director of atore service, credit man and half-a-dozen other things.
What Smith should do is this: If he is located in one of the smaller cities, in
which there are no advertising agencies giving a local copy service, and he
has no ono among hia own staff qualified by instinct or experience to
write the daily announcements, he should go to the publisher pf the newspaper in which he means to advertise, requesting hia help. In nine cases
out of ten, the publisher, through his advertising manager, will be only too
glad to give Smith the assistance desired.
If Smith is located in one of the larger cities he should secure the services
of a recognized advertising agency which will take over the work of pre-
paring his advertisements.
In this way Smith can be sure of having his advertisements prepared regularly and intelligently, with no more trouble to him than the supplying ot
the information required by the writer of the advertisements.
So Smith can do more business, and more business means a larger income
for himself, to say nothing of other gains that go hand in hand with the
doing of bigger business.

Chilliwack, Feb. G.-While the defeat of the school loan ilehentures bylaw submitted to the township ratepayers at the municipal elections las',

Unlike the Chinese settlements In
the big American cities, where the
hulk of the celestial population is segregated into a well-defined area. Toronto's "Chinatown" consist;; of only
a dozen clubs, all within stone's
throw if one another in the Immediate
neighborhood of Queen and York
eireets. Where, in the American cities, and on the Pacific coast, there is
a congested area literally swarming,
Toronto, by careful distribution of licenses ami Civic leases, has scattered her 1 SOO Chinese over tho length
and breadth of the city. But the Chinese, by reason of their being a nat-
turally "swarming" race, and because
of t'.reir absolute lack of domestic life,
must have some social meeting place.
And lio, to 1.8t)0 Chinese, there are
twelve ciubn, to one of which prncti*
cally every Chinaman in Toronto belongs.
It.ccrporated   Clubs.
The clubs are  incorporated  ami  11-
I censed by the Ontario government, ln
order to protect  the foreigners from
Bharpers,   A tee of about $100 is taken by the government for incorporation.   They are managed and governed by the Chinese shareholders, and

Ccst Seattle More to Remove Stumps
By   Lazy   Husband   Plan  Than
by Day  Labor.
Seattle, Feb. 6^-A serious question
| has arisen in the minds of some offi-
i rials, and also some private citizens
j engaged in the pastime of taxpaying,
i whether or not the digging of stumps
i is the most time saving and Intensive
i form of labor that lazy husbands may
j be put. to with tho best results.
The county has ;��� sixty-acre tract of
land  north of mallard, and a portion
of this has been inclosed for the purpose of retaining the husbands while
the}  work at the stumps, It Is not a
labor of love, in any sense, and it is
I plain   that  t'ao  minds  and   hearts  of
i the workmen are not In their work.   It
becomes   all   the   plainer   when   it   ia
I made  apparent  that  land-clearing  by
lazy husbands costs King county ap-
! proximately (6,000 an aore, or about
twenty-five times what it would cost
If  cleared   by   day   labor   intent  on
! Its task.
There   are   now   forty-eight   prison
ers at work in  the ste>ckade, and of
these thirty are lazy husbands doing
i elii-ir trims at ?1 to $1.50 per day. tbe
money going to their families. Including guards, superintendent and cook,
there have been a dozen county employees about the pen. The prisoners' board and necessary service costs
atoul $1,000 per month, wages paid to
families of lazy husband amounts to
about $960 per month, salaries of employees run to $1,100 per month, and
the total expense of pulling the
stumps is approximately $:i,0o0 per
month, There is no cleared tract of
ground among the stumps that at all
corresponds with the cost of clearing.
County Doesn't Like Plan.
It Is suggested by county officials
that some other form of labor more
remunerative to the county be employed, or lacking this, that the la-ay
husbands be retained in tho county
jail and the pay roll of guards be cut
Off. The latter Item alone, it Is suggested, would save the county $1,000
I or more per month, even after wages
were paid to the families of tiie hits-
��� bands lying In jail.

It Is Service That Backs Up
Advertising Most Successfully
In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store." "We pay the clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.

old. rending the appearance of his
lather, he was remanded for 'eight
days. This is the second under age
glass bouse employee to appear at
the   juvenile   court  in   t*o   weeks.
Probably nettled by the appointment of lice'iise and police commissioners ovef the head cf Mayor Mac
konzie, the supporters of the latter
turned out en masse at the annual
.lection meeting of the Coquitlam Agricultural society held Thursday evening, overthrowing all the old officers and  assuming  full control.
The chief surprise of the evening
was the oiuitUtl to re-elect W. J. Manson, Mi..A. for Dewdney riding, last
year's honorary pi\ sldent, l*n Mr.
Manson's place, Col. J. D. Taylor, M.P.
of New Westminster, was elected, together with Dr. C. K. Doherty, as honorary' vice-president.

the discovery that the' books of the

After ihe conclusion of four days of
hearing in the McOibbon murder trial
the jury was today dismissed, owing
to the illness of one of the jurors
nnd a new one empanelled on Feb.
16, b; fore whom Leonard McOibbon
will make his second appearance on
the charge of having on Aug. 21 last,
shot and killed his cousin, John McOibbon,  at  balesvllle,  near  Lachute.
The present trial was begun on
Wednesday last, extended over Thursday and Friday, the jury having been
kept together and under close guard
during the whole time.
Following the conclusion of yesterday afternoon's session the incident
ocourred which will, it is expected
make the proceedings to date wholly
null and void.
Juryman Klzcar Gascon, a resident
of St. Janvier, near St. Jerome, was
suddenly seized with an attack of indigestion combined with melancholia,
probably attributed to the confinement. Dr. Valois examined him but.
it wns decided to await the arrival of
Dr, Utbi Ile, who Is Mr. Gascon's family physician.
I/iiier iu Uie evening a consultation
of these two men was held with Dr.
Pager and it wan determined that
Mr. Gascon was not fitted lo continue
as a juror. A certificate to this effect has been furnished to Judge Ro-
tinie ulna a department should be
brought up and castigated*, this is the
Mr. Stevens.
Mr. Stevens, Vancouver, said he de-
plorcd Uie fact  that a  matter which
involved  the future relations of cap}-
I tal and labor should be made the subject of petty politics and a petty attack upon the minister of labor. Mr.
Carvcll interrupted Mr. Stevens to ask
If he wculd be in favor of a penalty
��� to enforce the award of an industrial
disputes board. Air, Stevens replied
that he was iu favor of the act being
amended iu that respect and said that
lie understood tin- minister was at
present engaged upon the task of
drafting such an amendment. Mr.
Stevens maintained that no evidence
| had been produced to show that the
minister had tailed in his duty. The
Irecognition of the lnt.irnat.ionn! or
local unions, was now before the coun-
II ry. There are at present In the
country many International unions of
the highest type. There ar., however, many who think that American
labor unions Bhould net be recognized, The difficulty in connection with
the settlement of labor disputes wa3
ill..* impossibility under the present
act cf fixing a penalty. It would be
a gocd thing if the minister of labor
could devise an amendment to tbe act
which would impose a penalty both
upon  the employer and their organ i-
) zatioiis for refusing to accept the
findings  of  a  board   of  conciliation.
j Both the  union  and    tbe    employer
should be made responsible parties.
Use of Troops.
Mr. Stevens thought the militia of
; Canada should not be a mere tool
in the bands of the employers. Great
care should be exercised in the use
of troops. So far as the Nanaimo
strike was concerned, he said, the
blame was not with the minister but
with the act. ���
The minister did his utmost to get
the two parties together but was met
with the difficulty that neither 6ide
would admit there was a strike. The
employers called it a walkout while
the men said they were taking a holiday, lie was disposed to blame the
employers more than the men, because they should havt- exorcis.d
more common sense and agreed to
meet tho organizers.
Ottawa, Feb. C.���E. H. Lewis, member for Fast llurcn, is still being
deluged with correspondence from
sympathizers with the cause of woman suffrage. Considerable objection is taken by most of the lady correspondents to bis proposal or motto
"no babies, no ballot." One woman,
however, writing to Mr. Lewis thinks
that he should go a little further and
give a ballot for every baby, thus giving mothers the balance of power.
The member for East Huron has received the following memorial from
the equal suffrage league of Nelson,
B.C., signed by Elizabeth Boherts
Macdonald, president: "The member**
of the Nelson equal suffrage league
give their earnest endorsement on
behalf of the extension of the" vote
to women. That you may be successful is our sincere desire."
Montreal, Feb. C���A campaign tt r
temperance and moral reform is t:
be initiated at once in this province
b ythe authorities of the Methodist
church, following a decision reached
at a meeting this morning of the Que
|bec branch of the general Canadian
assembly committee.
Sunday, March 1, was set as tho
date  for the  start and  on  that  day
i field secretaries will speak from eight
Methodist pulpits in the city.
A special committee was appointed
ithis morning to inquire into social
conditions tn Montreal and recommend Instant measures which may be
i taken to stem the tide of vice which
jit was claimed was assumping proportions of a menace in Quebec province.
Among the other plans now on the
tapis by the board for temperance and
moral reform are the establishment
of a borne for women in the city.
At the Theatres
Montreal, Feb. 6 "Oh, is this death,
is this death,? Ask Gcd to forgive me
��nd pray for me."
Such was the appeal cf Edilli Barnea
to Mrs. Win. Dawson in a scirci ly
aud.ble whisper as supported by tli -

night  last.
A i' w minutes later the ambulance

Compilation of Milk Records���Protest
Against  Importation  cf Cattle.
A new policy has been Introduced
Into the dairy industry of British Columbia by the provincial minister of
agriculture.    The value of permanent
: milk records has long been recognized
by   the   provincial  government  as  an
; asset to the farmer and a benefit to
the dairy industry, and after months
j of careful investigation of the procedure   followed   in   the   principal   dairy
j countries of the world, a plan has been
evolved by the department that, it Is
j believed,   will   increase   the   value   of
| these annals.
j A competent Inspector, trained in
j the science of cow testing, ami with a
complete outfit for his operations,
! will be allotted to every district In
lee province pasturing at least 400
cows within certain limits, the cost of
iiis employment belnng borne partly
by the cow-testing associations of this
dlstrlci and party by Uie provincial
government, This work will be -tn
pervised by the dairy instructor, and
will involve the bonuslng of the associations by a sum amounting to $250
to $600 a yea;-.
The Chilliwack dairy district has
been chosen as the first, experimental
base for this new work, and two inspectors have already been assigned
to this field. The 63 dairymen in this
area own approximately 1.200 milch
cows, and the night and morning milk
of every cow will be weighed and
tested at least once every month, the
records so obtained being subsequently tabulated so as to ascertain the
annual yield of each cow.
i Perhaps the greatest mysterious ai-
I traction that has ever appeared in
j this city, is that oi Mme. Pearl Taug-
I ley, seeress, who will appear all of
' next week at the Opera House, wilh
i t'.ie Langley Stock compauy.
j There have been acts shown here
j that rival the best that the vaudeville
; country offers, but never one that is so
! mysterious, so full cf tht- thrill that
j comes w!:h the occult as the marvelous work of this little lady. She has
; studied under the high priests of
[ Egypt. Although not a pretender of
i any kind, still she may be classed as
! one who Is able to govern herself by
her first impulse or instinct. She will
answer all questions that are asked
: her from those ln the audience and
, it matters not where they are writ-
: ten or upon what paper. She works
i while seated upon an extended plat-
��� form which projects out over the or*
i cheatra, thus eliminating all possible
I chances of employing the stock tricks
! generally prooticed by the fortune tell-
| "rs and the like.

friends during their engagement.
The "Tango" will be featured again
