When his lienor Judge Howay finish! s considering a case which he
now his under advisement he should
be able to qualify as a reliable critic
f: ,* any dog Show, i.' least in the Eng-
ilsh setter class, more particularly in
the   white  English  settler  class.
"I do not know much about dogol-

evidence started to coim* in during
the case* cf Bryant vs. Bills, "so you
will have to ro slowly."
Mi*. Bills Sips the don, a fine looking dog, with n few black spots on
his head and not much more in the
color line at rut him to break the symmetry cl his white English setter
body. Mr. Bryant claims the dog Is
liis, was given him by his brother and
beyond doubt Bhould be chewing bones
and gre w'ling at the Bryant be'ck door.
Bryant says lu* low tli** dog a year
ago last November after moving to
this city from Nanaimo. At that time
he, meaning Un* dog. was quite a pup.
Then he. still meaning tin* pup, disappeared and was allegedly located
in Mr. Ellis' possession a month or so
On the cither side. Mr. Ellis as-
Fer* s tbat he bought the dog from a
man who says he brought him from
Alberta. Now as Nanaimo and Alberta are not what might be called
neighbors, his honor, Judge Howay
has quite a field to cover In deciding
the ownership cf that white English
setter. It looked too deep for the
court to give p judgment off-hand,
so the care has been taken into con
tid eration.

Further than that, the delegates
went on record as favoring the total

ista who claimed that in the fight for
recognition against t'eie "interests,"

Woman't   Suffrage.
Considerable surprise was expressed
at the opposition thown to th*R* woman's suffrage measure, some of the
oppoi ition stating that, should the women get tiie vote they would later be
found fighting in the inteiests of the
"master class."
It remained for a woman delegate.
Miss Guttrldge, to espouse h��r cause

speech of five minutes duration, dur-

Three courses are open to congress
in  the subject.
Creat Britain, which has persistently opposed the toll exemption for
American ships, lias offered to arbi-

violation of the Hay-Pauncefot? treaty.
The majority in congress is believed
to be opposed to this, maintaining

.Montreal, Jan. 27,���"No boy should
lee allowed to work amid such temptations," said Judge Choquet in the juvenile court, when the case of tie 14-
year-old messenger hoy charged with
theft and destruction of telegrams by
thp Great Northwestern Telegraph
company, came before him.
The boy, an Intelligent little fellow
of good parentage, pleaded guilty to
destroying the drafts of telegrams and
cablegrams he had been sent out to
deliver, and to stealing the charges
given him for their transmission.
It is said the thefts came to light
through tho nondelivery of a cablegram to a member of a Montreal firm
n Europe, in which he was instructed to remain on the other side for a
further two weeks. As he never received this Intimation, he returned
here and an enquiry was set on foot

London, Jan. 27. ���At .Market Bos-
worth, Leicestershire, petty sessions
yesterday John Bishop, a pit boy,
was ohargi'd with having unlawfully
diverted the points of the colliery railway at Bagworth. tho property of the
Ibstock Collieries, Limited, on December 6. Frank Rouskell. who prosecuted, said the consequences might have
been serious, as had the affair happened further down the line there
might have been an accident on the
Burton and Leicester Midland companies' railway, while 1,000 might
have been thrown out of employment
by C:e stopping of the colliery.
A shunter in the employ of the company said that there was a set of
points at the junction of the company's line with the Midland Company's railroad, and he found the
points "scotched" when shunting,
with the result that the colliery engine
was thrown off the line. Some full
trucks collided with tho engine, and
the line was damaged, as well as the
axle of the engine. It took five hours
to get it ou the line again. The witness found that threo railway spikes
had been used to sprag tbe points.
Tho boy admitted having put the pikes
in tiie points, but denied putting in
half a brick In a Midland railway
point, which was afterwards found by
an Inspector.
The boy told a constable that he did
not think of throwing the engine off
theV lino. His father elected that the
case should be dealt with by the
bench, und the boy pleaded guilty. He
was ordered to receive six strokes
with the birch-rod. The chairman remarked that had the trucks gone on
to the Midland lino the loss of life
might have leen considerable.

Paris, Jan. 27.���Mrs, Jack Gouraud's
$5000 prize for a real social novelty
has been awarded. The successful
dea is an Egyptian desert fete, and
Mrs. Gouraud is about to leave for
Egypt to purchase slaves, siih1i,*h,
crocodiles and the various Impediments essential to Impart realism to
the entertainment which she will give
in i'aris next s ascn.
Tbe winner of the prize Is u young

Imagined the offer would be kept a

tiever intended that the newspapers
should mention it.

Mrs. Gouraud refrained from giving
full  details  of th;   fete,  arguing  that
j to do so  would  rob the affair of al.
I element  of  surprise.     Hut  she    said
j enough to make It  plain  that It  wlll
j be  particularly  costly.    Accompanied
only by a maid and a fat cheque book,
I sho lutends to leave shortly for Cairo,
1 whence she will make her way up the
Nile   nnd   strike   olT   on   camel   back
somewhere   near   Khartum   Into     the
wild  country  of   the  interior,   where.
by  means  of costly  gifu,  she  hopes
to  obtain   the  finest  types  of desert
manhood and  womanhood.    The next
step will be to secure half a djzeu
young crocodiles und    then    to find
three snake charmers, with a number
of reptiles.
She will proceed to transform the
spacious garden of her magnificent
home near the Hols de" Boulogne Into
a miniature desert, and it Is part of
her plan, In order to have plenty of
space, to Induce Gaby Deslys to loan
her garth n, which adjoins that of Mrs,
Gouraud. In the centro a Bmall sphinx
will be raised, alongside of which will
run a miniature Nile.

Imperial   Body  to Visit Canada
Met with Success Elsewhere
In view of the approaching visit
Canada of the dominions  royal  commission, the following article cut from
tbe   Ijondon   Standard   will   be  of  Interest:
The dominions royal commission
has resumed its sittings in the empire's capital, a:id in the course of a
month or so will set out for British
South Africa. Two months will be
spirit in the sub-continent, and the
members will return home* for a few
weeks preparatory to the greatest ad
venture of their inquiry���the work of
examining into th? resources of Newfoundland and Canada. The most ro*
cut. queBtlon under discussion has
been that of the advisability of issuing an Interim report dealing with
the sessions already held in London
iiiiel in New Zealand and Australia. la
ih case of a commission whose work
extends over so widt�� a field and so
long ii period of time, it seems to be
desirable that Uu* public interest
Bhould in- satisfied by the isaiir of
progress reports. To hold over the report until the whole work has been
completed would involve a summing
iqi of the merits cf the different dominions in competition with cue another. That is hardly necessary, nol
does it come within the scope of the
Con mission as proposed by Sir Wil
t'rld l.aiirier at the imperial con- I
rerence of 1911. The dominions have
each their special advantages and;
local peculiarities, and we are inclined
ii, ih. view thai these advantages
would hi- best brought before the peo
pie of tli? motherland and of the em- i
people will look with tho keenest Interest. Favored as to position, most
advanced of the dominions in the
matter of population, railway construction, and grain production, Canada naturally bulks considerably in
the eyes of the people of the motherland. Owing to the llnancial stringency which has passed over the world,
Canada, as a new and growing country, has felt the pinch ln the past
i>ear. In consequence, there have not
jbeen lacking people who from one
: cause and another have sought to exaggerate the difficulties and to cast
I doubt upon the greatness of Canada.
t0.The opinion of such will carry no
\ weight witii those who know, but
| there are many nervous investors
who have no knowledge at first hand.
; It. is these who will be convinced by
the independent testimony of the
dominions royal commission. What
tbat testimony will be there is no
. room for doubt. Canada haB the
material foundations of national greatness in her vast area of unfilled lands,
tier mines, her forests, her fisheries,
and the shrewd business men, financiers, and politicians composing the
commission will not be slow to realise these facts. Perhaps the people
! will learn that the stock exchange
view at a moment of world-wide
financial unrest does not bear very
:close relation to actual values. However, all Canada is looking forward

London, Jan. 27.���An English diamond digger named Bowker has arrived here with a diamond of the
first water weighing 178% carats, but
he finds himself ln the same position
as Mark Twain's man with the $1,000,-
OOP banknote. He has more wealth
than hundreds of men to whem he has
appealed, but he is unable to raise a
penny on the stone.
The diamond is an amber stone, perfectly clear and of undoubted value.
It was found at Droogeveld, South
Africa and resjmbles the Kohinoor.
There is no question that Bowker is
the legitimate owner, but he cannot
find a buyer. He has shewn the stone
to all the big Ixmdon dealers, but
while they have all displayed keen
interest, all have declined to purchase
it, on one pretext or another.
Until 1905 the largest diamond
known was the Exelsior. found in
1SH3 at Jagersfontein by a native
while loading a truck. It weighed 97;!
carats and was cut ultimately into ten
stones weighing trom 18 to 08 carats.
All previous discoveries were surpassed in 1905 by the finding of a

510'i carats. 309 3-16 carats. 92 c^.rats
and 62 carats. Of these the first and
second are the largest brilliants in existence. All are of the finest quality
and flawless.
The Kohinoor in its earliest known
state weighed 186V4 carats, but was
later cut  to 106.

sued his employers because while eu-

The lower court gran'ed a pension of
$9.3.75, while the company offered to

their appeal maintained that Uie injury to plaintiff was merely ephemeral.
The appellant also based its appeal
on the fact that the lower court deciared that it was obliged to set aside

One seed is a new kind of flax, from
the oil of which artists will make their
paint. Another is a cereal known
iis quino, to take the place of wheat,
barley or oats.
Painters have long complained that
lhe oil with which their paints are
mixed is not neutral because of the
variableness cf the flaxseed from
which ii is made, and consequently
that it often gives unexpected and
sometimes unsatisfactory effects. Bur
bank began gathering every kind
flax from all parts of the world years
ago. selected a certain seed as his
Ideal and began developing the planl
to grow only this type. Year after
year the seed wns planted and when
it was ripe only those wree kept that
were of the type desired. Finally a
point, has heen reached where the variety seems to have become fixed.
; Burbank declares that the oil it pro
duces  is  absolutely  neutral.
The quino plant is designed to take'
the place of cere;.', foods made from
different grains. The* reed resembles
a small hominy and ihe plant looks
like a wild mustard. It is claimed to
have ail the food values of other
grains, and is much cheaper. Moreover, in making cracked wheat, roll
*,! oats or barley, much of the grain
'--. wasted. The entire seed of ilu*
:i. .. plant is utilized. Originally it
came ."rem South America, but its development and climitization to California ��� se.il ami weather conditions
have Liken years eif study and experiment. Of the quino seeds of the
type Burbank has produced there is
not a peek in the world.
"We have pm these seeds in safe
deposit vaults," said President James
li. Edwards, of '.he Luther Burbank
ci i ipany, "because if tiny are destroyed ihey would never be reproduced. There is no more like them,
and 1 doubt if Burbank would live
long enough to develop them again,
li will he several years before we
shall be able to raise a sufficient.

Lie of slavery  in a  home ruined  by
the brutal behavior of a father, a six
year old cripple has poured  into tiio
ears of o. il. Skroeder, of the Society !
for   thi      Pri volition    of  Cruelty     to
Women and ( hlldren, a tale of utmost i
wi ���-.
Four years ago the fathi r was sent,
to jail lor three months and lined for
Inhuman behaviour   towards   a four-,
t.-en year old ciiihl.    Returning from
jail,   this  man   set  oul   to  make     th
lives of his three daughters and  urn* ',
.~iin a burden.    Ilis wife had died pre
viously, v. orn out by the life hi r hus* :
tand led her, and then the three girls l
h ft home to get out of his way. They
came to Montreal ar,'.! disappeared.
This reduced the household to himself and the littla boy, a .sufferer from '
infantile* paralysis.   The   fa.ther   is a |
man of substantial means, but appar- j
ently  utterly  devoid of all  the  finer
qualities.    Ilis  pity  for  the crippled I
lad was shown by his making him do ;
the   washing.     Instead  of  giving   i.:ra
the  nourishing  food  that his  wasted -
frame demanded, he forced    him    t.  .
gather his food from the garbage pails i
pul   off the C.  P.  U. cars,    near    tin-
This continued without    abatemi nl .
until  the last day of last year,  when
the lad determined that the dawn ol j
the New  Year should mean the dawn j
of a new existence,    lie would escape.
Hiding  li;s  time,    and  preferring    to
risk his life in the deep snow and icy j
weather rather than stay  with    tli ir- ;
father,  the  lad  draggt d  liis    wasted
body from the house, and up Into the ���
fork of a tree, where lie remained the
next, day and  night, while liis iufuri  i
ated parent raged and stormed around i
thi. grounds.

How long he would have lived il i * |
not possible to say, but a passer by I
saw something crawling In a ditch, |
and found the little lad. his scanty
clothes soaked, his legs ant] feel
frozen, getting along as best he could. ]
going he knew not  where.
Mr. Skroeder was notified.   The lad |
was  taken   home,    and    his   father's
manner of remedying his frozen feet j
and legs was to pul    them    Into    an |
oven to thaw   them out,    Considering I
his pav record, Mr. Skroeder thought
that something was wrong, went, down
nnd fact I the father, giving him th
alternative of going to Jail, or of pay
ing $16 p> r month to keep his lad in
n  be,me.    The  father agreed  to give
> money, and lo send tiu* hoy on
o Montreal.
Days w nl by, and no boy arrived
here, so Mr Skroeder took another
trip to the home, searched out the
hoy, and made the father sign notes
for $15, which v. ill become due evorv

will be sued for payment every month

a well known figure among tho mariners of Montreal, Quebec and the lower

will be an assistance materially and

It  has ever been tho policy of the
management lo provide only the best
attractions.   We have sometimes been
criticized   for   spending     such    large
amounts  for  these features,  but,  in
my opinion, if we nre to have a suc-

provide  attractions  out  of   the  ordl-
