Delegation of Ratepayers and Councillors Confer With
B. C. E. R.���Outcome Will Be Announced atlTouncil
Meeting���Extension of One Mile on Sapperton Line,
Two Miles in North Burnaby, Expected Concessions.
Edmonds, Feb. 28.���Negotiations between the B. C, E. It. and the Burnaby
municipality as to franchise matters
were reopened at Vancouver thia
morning wnen a deputation consisting
of the Burnaby council and a committee of two ratepayers from each of
the six wards Interviewed Mr. It. H.
Sperling, general manager of the company.
While nothing definite was decided
upon, Mr. Sperling made It plain that
he was quite willing to reopen the
matter and that the concessions mad"
some three months ago as to reduced
fares on the Central Park line would
still stand.
The question wlll probably come to
a head next Monday evening nt the
council metting when a letter will be
on hand from Mr. Sperling setting
forth in concrete form the concessions
thc company is willing to grant. If
these prove acceptable to the council
tho original bylaw of 1909 is likely to
be again submitted to the electorate
for sanction or rejection.
Results Expected.
Once the franchise ls ratified by
the required three-fifths majority, Mr.
Sperling promises that a mile of lino
extending from the terminus of the
Sapperton   line  will   be  commenced.
This would give the people residing
along th" North road those transportation facilities to New Westminster
that  they  now  lack.
Then again the people of North
Burnaby will have a car line extending
two mili'K from lhe present Hastings
termlnilS running due east and tapping th" populated districts of Vancouver  Heights.
Owing to the present stringency of
the money market throughout the
world,   tho   general   manager   of   the
I company would not promise any more
construction tn Burnaby as the com-
Ipany bad plans for spending the huge
: Bum of $8,000,000 during thc coming
j year throughout the lower mainland.
In order to allow no loopholes, the
i company agrees. In event of the franchise passing, to sign a subsidiary
agreement embodying the different
concessions promised.
Three Opponents.
Tbe   chief   opposition   to   the   pro-
! posals   of   the   company   came   from
* Ward Six, Councillor Mayne and Delegates Russell and Fraser objecting to
ithe franchise again being submitted
They took the stand that an appeal
should Immediately be entered by the
municipality against tha decision
handed down by Mr. Justice Murphy,
j which awarded the first fight in the
franchise tangle to the B. CJ5 It-
Councillor Coldicutt of Kast Burn
aby also kicked against the proposals
and at one period of the meeting the
members of the opposition were on the
point of gathering their hats and coast
land leaving the room.
Reeve McGregor, who during his
pre-election campaign, advocated a
settlement wllh the Ii. C. B. IL rather
than   have  tho  case  go  to  the   Privy
; Council, again spoke In favor of the
agreement and hoped to see the day
sometime during the next few years
when Burnaby. Point drey and South
Vancouver   would     be     amalgamated
1 with the city of Vancouver and welded
. Into one big metropolis.

HIb honor Judge Howay haa decided
that the Royal Bank of Canada Is responsible to D. H. O'Byrne lor the
sum of $693, the increased amount ln
a raised check, altered from $7 to
$700, by an employee of O'Byrne'B
named Jensen, wbo has since disappeared.
The case Is a highly important one
and may have far reaching consequences.
ln his Judgment Judge Howay Baid:
"1 have no hesitation, as 1 Btated
at the termination of this trial, in finding that the cheque was drawn originally for $7.00 and was afterwards
fraudulently altered to $700.00. I also
find that Jensen had no authority
whatever to change it in any particular after tbe plaintiff bad signed
"The plaintiff is an Illiterate person,
unacquainted with banking business.
The various cheques upon hiB account
show that hiB custom was to have
the creditors fill uo the cheques which
were then signed by him. Jensen being iu plaintiff's employment appears
also to have filled up not only his
own cheque but some for other persons.
The cheque in question which was
payable to Jensen was drawn by him
and signed by the plaintiff with a
space after the word "seven" and after the figure '7.' Jensen, by an act
of simple forgery (see Crankshaw
Criminal Code p.p. 526, 5291 added
words and figures "to the right of
these originally written In the cheque

for $700.
"In this form It was presented to
and paid by the defendant bank
While this cheque was scrutinized under the microscope bears
clear evidence of the alterations made
in it, yet these alterations were so
carefully done that In the ordinary
course of business lt was honored by
the bank without he-sltation.

Ottawa, Feb. 28���Shortly after the
house met today consideration of the
naval bill was taken up in committee
of the whole. In committee details are
considered and a member is at liberty
to speak as frequently as he desires.
The UEual result is a series of short
speeches confined to a few members
of the house.
Premier Borden took charge of the
delate, answered ln a courteous manner a volley of questions put to him
by the members of the opposition who
were evidently out to get all the Information they could secure in regard
to the government's proposal.
It Ib understood that this line of discussion will be followed for a few
days and that subsequently there will
be amendments which will call for set
The feature of the discussion today
was the statement of the probable
cost of the Laurier fleet units, submitted by Premier Borden and based upon
figures obtained from the admiralty
in so far as the cost of construction
in Great Britain is concerned. To
these figures an addition of 33 1-3
per cent was added to cover the additional cost for construction in Canada
making a total for two fleet units of
upwards of $68,000,000
Opposition members argued that the
cost of construction in this country
would not be so much higher as the
estimate showed, more particularly
as within the past couple of years
wages in the shipbuilding line in Great
Britain have increased by at least 25
per cent.
During the course of the discussion
.Mr Borden made the announcement
that the naval college at Halifax would
be maintained anil that the curriculum
would be enlarged to include engineering subjects.
At 11:80 the first clause of the bill
authorizing the setting aaide of $25.-
000,000 for the purpose of the defence
of the empire waa carried and the
house rose.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier set the ball rolling by requesting information with respect to the cost of building such,
ships as would be comprised in a.
Laurier fleet unit. Mr. Borden submitted figures which he said had been
supplied to him by the admiralty In
January of thla year.
Coat in Canada.
According to these figures the cost
of  building  the  ships  in  Canada as
proposed by the Liberals would be aa
One battle cruiser, $17,785,650; three
cruisers, $8,305,850; six destroyers,
$5,745,000; three submarines, $2,450,-
300; total, $34,388,600; total for two
units as proposed by the Liberate,
These figures, aald Mr Borden,,
were computed on a basis of one-third
higher  than  the  cost of building in
I England, this being the estimate add-
I ed and  he  quoted  the following fig-
jures as the cost of building the same
I vessels  In   England:
j One battle cruiser, $12,906,886; three
cruisers, $6 009,846; six destroyera,
$4,102,600;   three  submarines.  $1,776,-
; 333.
j In addition to this, he said, the admiralty included in its estimates the
sum cf $313,413 for sea stores, anil
fuel as a part of first cost Members
of iho opposition at once began to

Mr. Bcrden replied that his figures'-
were from the admiralty and he knew.

of Hcu:e of Commons���Lady Aberdeen's   Influence.
I��ondon, Feb. 28.���Her association
with Lady Aberdeen appears if have
had quite a stimulating influence up
on the political vIbIoii of MIbb Violet
Asqulth, daughter of the English premier, Before her recent trip her po
litlcal views were of a somewhat negative character, ajul if bIhi had any
leanings at all they were not in the*
ltadical direction.
Miss Violet Asqulth returned from
her trip a confirmed home ruler. She
signalized her new faith by personally
congratulating John Redmond on his
parliamentary victory. The incident
caused somewhat of a sensation in the
lobby of tho House of Commons,
where she walked up boldly to the Irish
leader and shook him cordially by
both hands. Up to that moment the
feeling in regard to her had been that
she took no interest whatever in Ireland.
A young woman of keen, intelligent
powers of observation, the Nationalists in the House of Commons believe
that the interest which she found centred in the Home Rule question during her visit was a Btrong contributing
factor in remoulding her views.
For some time Bbe has been on
terms of personal Intimacy with John
Redmond and his family, but until
now she has shown no disposition to
follow his political activities.

St. Petersburg, Feb. 28.--Mary Ra
ehad/.e, (anions as one of the most
beautiful women ln Caucasia, has met
with a terrible fate, She was nyir

revolutionary, and Mary Baohadze
, shared his views.
When reaction, however, gained the

anil turned informer. Due day he was
blown to pieces by a bomb placed on
his own doorstep.
Mary llachad/e, who loved her bus
band passionately, became enraged
against the revolutionaries, especially
as sh" did imt believe that her husband had acted as a spy.
For years she has persecuted the
adherents of the revolutionary cause.
No less than .SMI of them have been
arrested through ber Instrumiiilality,
and many have been executed.
Sbe knew that she had been con
demned to death, but continued ruth-

London, Feb. 28. An outcry Ib holing raited regarding the immodesty
I of the sllt-sktrt which is now frequently sei n In London.    Several mill-j
latere have denounci d It from ihelr.
' pulpits,  and  wonn n   wearing  tills  ul-1
j tra-fashlonable    skirt   have    actually
I been  refused admittance to places of
j public entertainment.
With a view to securing expert opinion upon the controversy, I put the
matter before Madame Holierteau, the
well-known fashionable London dressmaker, who Invented the "two-hook"
dress.    Mme. Robtereau writes:
"The silt skirt has been worn for
several years occasionally, and lt has
been in general uae for walking and
evening gowns since last spring, when I
Its appearance became so general that
oue passed lu the Etrett without re-
marking it.
"It never haa become popular as a!
Bmart afternoon gown.    It Is used In I
the walking skirt utility,  and  In the
evening gown for artistic effect,   but i
there does not seem any reason to use
It with the afternoon gown.    Only one
after noon gown with a slit has been J
made at my place in Dover street.   It,
was to be worn on the stage, and was
of champagne colored silk.
The skirt was slit as far up as  the
hip.    Under the slit was a  piece   of
white satin  which  waB held tight   to
the leg by elastics, so that when the
wearer walked, the champagne-colored
OVer-dreSS   fell   quite   away   from   the j
white satin.    There was  nothing Im-1
modest  In the skirt;  one was left   to'
guess what became of the white Satin.
"No dressmaker striving for artis-
tic effect would  tolerate  an  exaggerated slit In the skirt    that is, a skirt
with an  untrimmed slit exposing the
entire leg.   The human figure ls beau- *
tlful only wbeu it Is either artistically
draped  or  nude -any  other  exp'osure
can  only   appeal  to  the   vulgar mind
looking  for sensational  developments!
In women's fashions which never ap-
oear except on those who cater to satisfy such minds.
"One hall gown made at my establishment this winter waB of putty-
colon d satin heavily embroidered In
gold, At the left side was a slit which
ran well ahovfl the knee, but laid in
thn slit was n layer of putty-colored
chiffon covered with palest yellow
chiffon trimmed In black net hands
on which were traced a design ln'
gold thread.
"Purple silk tights were worn with
jthls   gown,   with    slippers    of  purple
am in, the Ill-els being of filigree gold.
and  a small  button of tlie same fill
gree trimmed the front of the slipper.
:A gold  filigne garter was worn just
, lit l_,w the knee.    The iii tails were not
emphatic, covered as they were. One
i w'iis never sure of what they Baw, and
'y<t the  whole blended  so   artistically
th it the effect was beautiful.

Motorists in New Westminster and vicinity will be interested in
the announcement respecting the arrival of the new McLaughlin
models. Our stock at present comprises the complete line of 1913
design automobiles of various sizes and colors, including three
typos of touring-cars and two roadsters. It is especially interesting to note that the McLaughlin principles of construction, which
have proved so successful under the most rigorous Canadian road
conditions, are retained; and while, of course, substantial improvements have been effected, no radical experimental ideas
have been adopted.

every effort has been made to add to the already high esteem in
which McLaughlin cars and McLaughlin service are held by the

his antagonist when the referee waB
not looking. Smith and Joe Walcott,
the "Black Demon of Barbados" used
to mix tilings quite frequently, and the
way Smith treated that coon was
something scan'louB.
The first Smith-Walcott bout waB
btaged ln the Boston Music Hall 18
years ago today, March 1, 1895 and it
will never be forgotten by those who
witnessed It. There waB a lot of race
feeling in the Bean Cily, and Walcott
feared the crowd more than he did his
opponent. The referee was an old
pugilist named Aaron, and he was
blind as a bat to all Billy's foul stuff.
Once he actually hit Joe's coco,
which showed mighty poor Judgment.
Joe was afraid to protest against
Smith's fouling, because the fanB were
constantly yelling "kill the smoke,"
and every foul put over by Smith was
greeted with applause. Once Billy
brought down the house by brazenly
asking the referee to disqualify the
negro because, explained Smith, "he
is biting me."
The whole affair was a disgrace to
the sport, and, happily, nothing like
that could be pulled off now. Despite
the handicap, Joe had the best of the
affair, and the referee had to give
him a draw,
Not long after the Boston battle,
Smith anil Walcott fought again, this
time In New York, for the world's
welterweight championship. Charlie
White was the tiii.'d man In the ring
and he made the men fight fair.
This bout went 25 rounds and the
decision went to Smith, who had all
the better of the latter part of the
engagement, at one time knocking the
'demon" down for the count of eight.
In 1898 they fought again, going 25
rounds to a draw, ln two following
iiattltB with the "demon" Smith lost
both on fouls.
eighty  people    took    part,    including
Reeve Mars.
ln the course of a happy evening's i
entertainment Mr. Harry Bettz offered to present the club with a building

Commencing throughout Australia
with vigor and a determined effort Is
being made hy 1-nbor party again to
occupy tlie federal benches, while an
equally determined attempt will be put
forward by the Liberals to oust their
opponents from the coveted seats in
Australia's federal cabinet.
Free trade and protection, it now appears, are to be the principal policies on which the opposing parties
will appeal to the country for support during the general elections. The
Melbourne Age is at present running
a series of articles demonstrating that
Australia Ib losing millions of poundB
annually in wages owing to the defects in the present tariff.
The paper is making an urgent appeal to the Liberal party to reject all
free trade proposals and to help Australian Industry by encouraging a
strong tariff.
On account of the fact that the recently elected Liberal leader, Joseph
Cook, is a noted free trader. Labor
ranks are jubilant, believing that their
party will be returned by an overwhelming majority.
The present labor government,
while promising to increase the present protection, also has determined on
a vigorous defence policy. The government promises that the compulsory military service will he continued
and that the building of the Australian
navy wlll not be neglected.
The prime minister, Andrew Fisher,
! intends to make an effort to discuss
I the adequate defence of the Pacific
with the Hon. George E. Foster when
lhe arrives, since Australia has not
I yet given up hope that Canada will
fall in line with New Zealand and the
Commonwealth in this respect.

He has usually had a varied experience of life, and he knows what to
say and what will interest his companion.
(2) The  young  lover   Is    usually
wrapped  up ln himself.    He gives   a

The most significant advantage possessed by the lover of forty or over
lies in the impossibility of "finding
him out" after marriage, because he
is so obviously himself during the
period of courtship. When women
marry young, inexperienced men, how-
ver, there ir always the danger of
their finding out afterward, when Ihe
sharp edge of love has worn off, that
their husbands are not good companions and that they really have
little In common.

A good deal of levity naturalfy was
displayed; but on the whole, tho Idea
survived, as Is proved hy tbe fact thai
at present more than one organization
is trying to establish something like
voluntary national service. Thc idea
for widely different reasons, has ap
pealed  to Germans.
Stiff   Discipline.
Militarists like the suggestion of
st ff discipline; peace enthusiasts Im
agine that an army of women busy
in useful work would be a standing
reproach to militarists; and anti-fern
Inlsts claim that if women are com
pulsorily grounded in domesticity they
will forswear the vote and other male
vanities. Ingenious calculations have
been made to prove that barracks
full of young girls could be maintain

knitting  and cookery.
Dr. Felix Halm, an ingenious Stutt
gart statistician, proves that the whole
question of urban poverty can thus be
solved, thut If only the state Insisted
on 233.000 girls working hard for a
year there would be everywhere
enough bread, clothing and blankets;
and a still more ingenious statiticlan

Tho Conservative Deutsche Tamos-
r.eituiiK combats the proposal on a
more serious ground, In any kind ot
mass women's training it sees the
menu of a unlveraal female demoralisation. "The woman, when in asso
elation with ntlier women loses all her
good qualities. Women In the mass
are  frightful."
Teach   Law  and   Medicine.
A third objection is that If national
service were enforced on women, the
state could not slop at tlie programm<
ot teaching sewing, cooking and care
of   children;   that   It   would   have   to
leach law und medicine to the Intel
lei luaily superior conscripts; and thai
in the end the number of women emu
potent in sewing, cookery and rearing
children would be even smaller thai
it Is today.

in nine eases out of ten it is the

In either case an unpunctuul Scoutmaster can never hope to have a binart

for once in a way, he should mention
the reason to the boyn to show that
he recognizes hiB lateness and would

With regard to keeping one's word,

London, Feb. 28.���Any tourist In
London just uow would not be long
in coming to the conclusion that it is
the worst dreBBed city in the world.
Everywhere you go���In the city, in
the chief West End thoroughfares, at
I the most fashionable restaurants, at
the matinee performances in the theatres -nearly all the men are to be
seen wearing old clothes.
To teBt the truth or otherwise of the
accusation a correspondent took a
censim of the men passing along Piccadilly, and of the^flrst UiO who pass-
�����"���*���*��� at s given time only one wore a
silk bat and 85 wore very "baggy"
Of course the weather ls mostly to
blame. The fog and the mud Beem to
Invest the average Londoner with a
"Don't-care-what-I-wear" sort of feeling. This type of man will not put on
his morning suit or his smartest
lounge suit to have It straight away
spoiled by the greasy, petrollzed mud
that has made London Btreets a horror to the well-dressed person. He
prefers to look shabby.
W. D. F. Vincent, editor of the Tailor and Cutter, says: "The absence of
the sun always means a dull time for
the tailor. Man seeniB to think that in
the semi-twilight of the winter days
any old garment is good enough to
wear. Then, again, the really well-
dressed men are abroad���at the Riviera and enjoying the winter sports
in Switzerland."
The tailors who specialize in repairing, pressing and cleaning work
are doing a great business, however.

you are placing  yourself   In   greaWI
I danger thau cxIbIb In  the most   hazardous class of  railway employment
and choose some other path!
Above all, remember It Is much
better to take a little more time and
