for the association and the party as a

the fact thai bad lie lived ii was quite
probable he would have been seen in

Course of his speech later In the

Just as the treasurer was conclud-

Premier McBride, Attorney General
Bowser and Provincial Secretary
Young entered tin* assembly hall.
Their arrival was the signal for an
outburst of cheering that continued
fpr several minutes to be resumed
again when the premier rose to speak.
Ask no Favors.
Referring briefly to the death of
Mr. Lee. of New Westminster, and
also to that of Lord Strathcona, he
paspfd on to a review of what the
Borden administration at Ottawa had
���done for the province, declaring that
never b.fore in history bad this province received such recognition from
Ottawa as bad been obtained when
Premier llorden assumed office. British Columbia did not ask for favors,
be told the delegates, but simply
sought what    is  fair and    legitimate
Uritish   Columbia   was  the  largest   cf
any province In the Dominion.
II** urged that the public spirited
citizens of tiie province should join
in promoting the Interests of the provincial university so that its tioard of
governors and faculty would be filled
with enthusiasm. The university
would open its doors iu September,
1915, he said. Good reports had been
received for the year from the forestry, water and fisheries departments
as w. II as from the agricultural
branch in which the government bad
i xpended a large sum during the past
year, particularly in the Okanagan
valley in a co-operative project which
had apparently produced good results.
Mining Troubles on Island.
Turning to consideration of the
mining troubles on Vancouver Island,
he commended Attorney General i
Bowser for his prompt action for preservation of law and order among the
strikers. ���
"Tbe time has arrived for the r:sig-
nation or the destruction of the gov-:
emment   when   it   does   not   provide .
lir.-.t   of  all  for  law   and  order,"    be
said.     "While   no  one    deplores     th? I
conditions more than the members of
the  government, are*  while    no   one
realizes better than  we do the right
of    the  workers  to  siriki*,    yet   they
must obey the laws."
The premier pointed out that in
many cases press and pulpit had
united In placing the blame for the
whole disturbance upon bis shoulders.
"i am ready to take all the responsibility that is mine," he declared,
"but these statements were manufactured mainly for political purposes,
and to assist the propaganda of the
Liberal party."
The premier then went on, dealing
with the financial depression, concluding  with  the following statement:
"As a matter of fact this province
has come through the general financial crisis In splendid shape. We are
gittlng through the severest portion
cf the t'sl This year gives a pron
Ise most inviting. Business is pick-
Inn up everywhere, and wilh the completion of the through railway lines.

the putting into effect of the Wilson
Alaska policy, British Columbia should
prolit greatly.
"It is true that the corner lot
traders are not doing a great deal,
and some of them declare that the.
country has gone lo pot. but that kind
of men are not wanted here anyway.
This is the place for the optimist. We
bid defiance to calamity. We look to
the future with faith and optimism
that can suffer from no qualification,
All  is well  with   British  Columbia."

There's one way the Dominion "'overnment can make
firm friends in New Westminster and that is by paying
strict attention to business down at the mouth of the
river, where it has undertaken to open the stream to deep
sea shipping as fast as money, men and materials can do
it. As evidence that the federal authorities intend to
make good on their promises there have been several recent developments. The first was the announcement from
Ottawa that contracts were to lie called for an additional
four thousand feet of jetty work and the second is the
bringing of the big dredge Mastodon to the Fraser mouth
to help "move the" sand that is blocking the deep water
channel. As long as the Dominion government sticks to
that line of action it will have the endorsation of local
It is interesting to note that the moving of the big
dredge to the work came so soon after the recent municipal elections, when Westminster went on record as being
solidly behind its own local harbor improvment scheme.
What result a repudiation of that plan might have had on
Dominion government operations, of course is problematical, but it is safe to assume that had the city fallen down
on its end of the work there would have been a noticeable
dropping off in federal activities at the river mouth.
All this town has to do is to hang on and growl With
a fresh water harbor ready for Panama canal shipping,
there will be no end to development possibilities here and
those who have waited so long for the real growth will be
amply rewarded.
But in the meantime, stick to it and never let go.
Let us demonstrate and explain their many advantages.

Mr. Allerton shows that by proper
Care hog raising Is not expensive and
i it is unnecessary to point out that in

that besides the direct value of hog
breeding in the profit of the animals
themselves, hogs greatly enrich the
land upon which they run. und thus

the betterment of all crops by supplying natural fertilizer,

really is, there would be many more
hogs raised and the meat problem

To-day's Impressions
To-morrow's Sales
Many a September purchase is really decided in July.
Many a woman is gathering inf irmation to-day that will influence her selection of a stove two months hence.
Many a man is thinking ri^ht now about the store he will patronize for his Fall suit and overcoat.
Many an October piano purchase is really determined on the
porch of a summer hotel or home in August.
How unwise, then, to put off the Advertising of these and
similar articles until the actual time of their use arrives.
One advertisement seldom makes a sale. It is
the repeated impressions created by Advertising
that develops pun liases by a discriminating public���and these impressions are seldom built up
in a day, a week cr a month.
Yet sane manufacturers and merchants still
procrastinate until the lirst nip of frost is felt���
and then besiege the public with belated announcements of Fall clothes, kitchen ranges,
home furnishings, winter underwear, and other
articles usually purchased in the Fall.
Purchased in the Fall���oh, yes���but deeided vpon

that are continuously advertised.
It's the Advertising read in July that bears fruit in September
and October. For to-day's impressions inevitably lead to
to-morrow's sales.

The tango is a graceful, sedate and
respectable dance, If danced in the
right manner. Hut tbe dance has to
be performed according to Instructions and should not be confused with
the turkey trot, one step, horse trot,
bunny hug or others of that ilk. 'Ilie
tango is the tango and nothing else,
aim If it resembles anything It is the
minuet. It has no relation to most of
the freak dances that bave been perpetrated on tiie public, and if done well
is  a   beautiful  dance,
"Any one who has seen both the
tango and the one step will know that

Is as graceful and restrained as the

slow. The dancers rarely assume a
close position as in lhe other dances.
As a matte.- of fact, the tango is not
danced often because so few people
know the steps.
"A variation of the turkey col is
lhe origin of ihe one step dance. The
trot became offensive wilh the result
that the dance was banned from polite society," said a dancing professor. "Later on the teachers of the

Story  cf One Tango.
Tbe story of the origin of the tango
is interesting. The tango is a series
of five steps taken from the ancient
Argentine tango, which was danced
almost "000 years ago. The dance
v as revived 40 or 50 years ago in
the Argentine, but became so offensive that it was banned. The dance

Playing in big league form, the
Royals came back in riashy style last

Taken ail round last night's game
was about tho best ever staged in
the local arena. One lone penalty
was handed out during the entire session, Ernie Johnson raising the ire of
Referee Taylor in the second period
when he bumped Dubble Kerr pretty

taking tin* count. Even at that there

Throop   Hurt.
The hoil.io which has chased the
Royals around t'.x* circuit throughout
the present season continued when
Art Throop, after playing a stellar
game for ten minutes in t'.ie opening
period, was forced to retire with a
broken  cellar bone.
Throop was playing his usual bustling game on left wing when he was
'placed hors de combat and v. ill probably be out of ti!" gaine for the

Charlie Tobin performed tin* comeback s'unt to perfection and although
the Winnipeg boy tired considerably in
the closing session, liis slellar work
in centre Ice was one of the features
of   the   game.
While every wearer of the orange
and black played brilliant hockey, the
u.irk of Lhe defence deserves special
commendation. Lehman easily retained lis position as a pier among
Custodians,  some of  'In* shots that  he

Splendid Defence.
Oeorge Roohon was the Rochon of
1912-13, the point player giving a tine
exhibition of how a defensive and offensive game should really he played.
Ernie Johnson, while not in any way

two counters while taking numerous
shots that were ever difficult to navigate. Dunderdale's second goal, however was more of a fluke, the puck

Tacoma,    Jan.     23. Conspiracy    to
force it into bankruptcy and thereby
deprive it of a $250,000 railroad construction contract, is alleged by the
Keasal Construction company, one of
the largest contracting concerns In
Tacoma, in its reply to a bankruptcy
petition fik'ii against it in the Tacoma
federal court. The company denies

The affirmative defence charges

to injure and defrauu the Keasal firm.

Victoria, Jan. 2.1.���Because cf a
technical violation of the School act,
School Trustee Reginald Hayward is
disqualified from sitting as a member
of the board. Mr. Hayward, at the
first meeting of the new board, notified tho members of his position, and
while  expressing  his   regret,  that  he
I could no longer sit, pointed to the ne-
Icessity of his relinquishing the office.
Whether  a  new  election  will  have
Ito be held to fill t'.ie vacancy thus oc-
casloned or just, what legal -steps will
have to be taken is a question which
will be immediately dealt with
by the hoard.    The fact that  Mr. Hay-
(ward's home is in Oak Hay is the rea-
'son for liis disqualification.
Tiie discovery by .Mr. Hayward of
liis disqualification was made following the forwarding to tin* school board
'of a communication from the provincial educational department. Recently at Vancouver, Dr, Brydon-Jack, a
school trustee, was disqualified because  lie  was  a   resident   not  of  the
' city but of an adjoining municipality.
He retired, and with a view to correcting similar cases in other boards, the
education department circularized all
school boards, calling attention to the
fact that a school trustee must be a
resident of the school district for
which he is elected. Alexander Robinson, superintendent of education,
wrote as  follows:
"With reference to the qualifications
of   trustees   for  city   school   districts,
! there seems to be a more or less prevailing idea among boards that a person  is eligible  for tho  position   who
i holds the qualification set forth tn
Sec. 38 of the School act, but who is
|not  an  actual  resident   of  the  school
district.    In order thai there may be
no misapprehension I beg to point out
that Sec. ,'IS must be considered jointly with Sec. 123 and. therefore, one
who is not an actual resident of Victoria is not eligible for the position of
trustee.    As the  proceedings  of any
board in which a trustee not qualified
takes part, ate liable to be invalidated
if questioned, it is very important for
your board to have a clear understand-
.    to the necfsasi-y qualifications
trustee.   If there is any member
Victoria board of school trus-
ho is not an actual  resident of
. the necessary steps should be
rthwith  to fill  the  position."
II  > is as a result of this communi-
cal   m  that  Trustee  Hayward  Investigated     - status and found he was dis-
qualil    I   from  further sitting on  the
board.    In  fact, according to  law,  In*
jhas neve:* been qualified since his election  last June.
: Trustee Jay explained that when he
had heard of tfcp case he had secured
the opinion of tli" hoard's solicitor. E.
V. Bodwell, K.C., who had held that
Trustee Hayward was undoubtedly disqualified in that as hs is and has been
a resident of Oak Hay. hi.- home being
In that district, he could not legally
be a member of the Victoria school
board. Mr. Jay expressed his personal regret thai Mr. Hayward could uo
longer sit on the board as he had
proved a most valuable member.
Trustee Mrs. Jenkins also expressed
her regret, and other members of the
board did likewise.
On the point of the legal effect on
the   actions   of   laist   year's   board,   of
i which Mr. Hayward sat as a member,
doubt exists, but advise thereon will be
(secured. Trustee .lay explained that
it would have no effect on the bylaws
recently passed as they -were measures submitted by the council.

streets, will be commenced immediately. The contract which has been
awarded I'arfiit Bros., of this city wiib
received yesterday after having been
formally Blgnod by the Dominion government. The Ngure Is In the neighborhood of $250,000, and it is announc
el that work will be started at once,
the contractors hoping to have it completed within a year, although they
have been allowed IS months.
"As i-oi n as we can assemble our
plan:, the excavation will be begun.
This will only tain* a few* days, so
that it Is assured that the undertaking
will be In full swing before the end of
the month. Although we cannot be
sure there is every Indication that, no
rock will be encountered on the site
in which event it should bo possible,
barring unforeseen delay, to complete
the building within a year, thus piv-
ing the different military forces of the
city  their  new   home  early   In   1916."

expressed that the structure would be
the most pretentions in the north end

When the Spanish war broke out the
news of it reached the wilderness in
which I lived. Here was a chance tn
get out of the woods and luto the
world. I would enlist for a soldier. I
would need no money. The government would,clothe, feed and transport
me. and oil that would be required of
me would be to be shot. Aud if those
who shot at me missed me and continued to miss me till the war was
over I would be taken care of till the

would be laid on tbe shelf, but would

not read music���ut least could not
learn to do so quickly enough for the
purpose���but I could Improvise, and
what astonished Inez was I hat I could S
not only "make up" aim, but could
play them wilh remarkable fervor.
All this del eloped within a few days,
nt the end of which time Ihe bandmaster sent to learn if I was well enough
to play for him. I replied that 1
would be very soon, but since 1 had
not touched a musical Instrument since
the war began I would like to have
him send me one on which I might get
a  little practice before submitting to
a lest     Ile sent  me a cornet.
Fearing that he would hear my first
efforts and leani of my ignorance of
the ail in which I pretended, I asked
Inez, to stuff the cracks in tbe windows
of the room in which 1 lay. and I began my efforts under Ihe bed I made
what headway I could in this disadvantageous way nnd In two days began
to play on the bed Instead of under It.
Whether I was heard by the bandmaster or not I don't know, but if I was
no word about it came to me. But so
fearful was I of betraying my want of
knowledge of the cornet that 1 dare
not blow a full blast.
Every day I feared some change thut
would cut short my preparation, and
It wns carried on under the fear that at
uny moment the army law might be
permitted to take its course. 1 was
haunted by the expectation of being
marched out at any moment, stood up
before a tile of soldiers and shot. So
lugubrious were my feelings that my
playing would have been much better
fitted for a funeral march than the
popular airs of the day.
One morning  the  bandmaster came
to see me and told me that a candidate
for cornet player iu the bund bad appeared In the personage of a soldier In
the ranks and. since he most have a
inau   to  till   ihe  post  as  soon  as possible,  unless  I   was  ready  to stand a
test   he   would   have  the  other   man
transferred to the band.   I begged him
to  wait a few days that  I  might get
more strength, but he said the colonel
was  liable at any  time to notice the
deteriorated condition of the band and
If he did it would be Impossible to tell
what be would do. This frightened me.
and I consented to stand trial.
The nest afternoon he brought a man
to the house where 1 was lying.   Inez
saw  them coming with a cornet and.
palo as death, ran in to tell me.  I was
desperate.   If I submitted to a trial of
skill between myself and one who was
familiar with ihe Instrument 1 would
doubtless show my inability as a cor
net player: If I refused to submit the
man would be appointed in ray place
; ami I would be shot
"Let  them  come,"   I   exclaimed.   "1
will blow a blast thut will awaken the
dead "
I  knew that my room was no place
' for a test on a cornet and asked Inez

Early Trade  Not  Looked for on  London  Market���Contrast to Othir
Financial Centres.
New Yosk, Jan. 22. -The London
itiat in a recent issue states that in
London "it seems safe to conclude
money will not bacome either plentiful or cheap in the immediate future.
. . . The London market, therefore,
is likely to offer a remarkable contrast to leading money markets of the
world." Ii points out that an accumulation of money in New York at this
time is normal and says that "unless
preparations for bringing the ne.\t
banking law into operation throw out
calculations based on past experience, money ought to be plentiful and
immediate future in New
cheap in the
The Statist is of the opinion that
New York may draw considerable
gold from London, an opinion which
is of interest in view of recent
strength here in foreign exchange.
While not looking for an early revival in trade, the Statist is disposed
lo look for a distinct improvement in
the Security markets. On this point
its says: "Naturally this abundance
of money is expected to lead to a recovery. That it will lead to more activity upon the bourse is reasonably
to be anticipated. But whether it will
inspire courage enough to lead to a
recovery in trade proper is much
more doubtful. ... It will bo wonderful indeed If there is a very' early
recovery in trade. The more likely
thing is that trade will go lower before it begins to improve.
"On the other hand, it    is   in    the
highest   degree   likely   that  the  very
falling   off    in    trade   will incite   to
speculation, not only in Germany, but
all over Europe,    unless,    of    course.
something  quite  unforseen    happens.
Oeinands for new capital for trade, in
Germany at all events, is likely to be
small for some  time te come.    That
being so. those who have mere capital
than  they can  profitably employ will
probably turn to the bourse to use it
to advantage.    They will  put at disposal of the market large sums, which
we may  safely  conclude  numbers of
persons will take advantage of. Moreover, a gcod deal of money has been
made  during  the  piping  times    that
have now come to an end.    Much of
hat money  was used, of course,    in
actual trade.    But as volume of trade
declines, the owners of the large profits made will naturally invest.    Consequently, we are likely to see a considerable  investment  as  well    as    a
larger volume of speculation than has
been'  witnessed  for 6ome  time.    For
both  reasons  an  improvement    upon
the  bourses is to be anticipated, unless, of course, in Germany, like everywhere else, the rueh ot new issues is
so great as to mop up all    available.
"As soon as preparations for provid-
:ng the new district    banks    in    the
United  States  with  capital are completed,  it   is  reasonable  to  anticipate
there will   be an outburst of activity
in  the  United States.  The country 1st

-aid that bis
cornet and tils flageolet had been killed
and bis trombone was groaning under
a bad wound The colonel was very
proud of the regimental band, and just
ns soon as the routine of army life re
commenced be would notice that the
music was not up t�� the murk and
there would be the mischief to pay.
The other suggested that musicians be
obtained from the prisoners who bad
been captured from the enemy
first man answered that he
thought of it: he would try. If
were a musician be might put you luto
the hand."
Here wns a chance for llfe-n ghost
of o chance, but still a chance. The
onlv indication that I had enough music'in me to avail myself of the opportunity was that I had loved the snugs
of birds. 1 asked Inez to go to
camp, find the bandmaster and
blm there was a man In her home who
could play on any Instrument: that he
was 111. but convalescent, and with a
couple of weeks' practice would be able
to lake his place In a band.
Inez told Ibe story, and the band*
master came over to sw me. When I
told him I was under sentence to be
shot he was n bit discouraged, but -mid
that If I was a Urst cluss cornet player
he thought the colonel would have
enough Influence to get a commutation
or something thut would save m.v
breath for the band. He went away
nnd came hack to say that be had seen
the colonel and secured an order delaying m.v execution till It could be dis
covered whether I was a valuable musician. If so some way of defeating
lustlee would be found by which I
could W> utilized. The colonel's pride

enough to give lilm anything displaying technique; I could only produce

and all were absorbed I played It n

The third time every one within hearing   was   weeping.
"That's enough." said the bandmaster: "you're my man."
"Hold," I said; "the secret must come
out in time: 1 can't play a note. 1
have simply learned this lu the vain
hope of saving my life."
"I don't care If you can't play the
penle: there's more music In you than
lu my whole band. I'll make n musician of you. nnd wben I do you'll be
a wonder."
Inez's tears gushed afresh, and she
clasped me In her arms.
My execution was got round in this
way. A requisition was made on the
quartermaster for a coffin. It was Indorsed. "No coffin In my possession."
The requisition having been referred
to the colonel, he Issued a special older
that I was to be released from arrest
till n coffin could be procured In whlcb
to bury me. Ttie coffin wns never prn-

The army regulations were adhered to.
and I have become a great musician.
