Turkish Delegates Are
Preparing to Go Home
Lsondon, Jan. 11.���The British secretary of state for foreign juTfatrs, Sir
Bdward Grey, and the at-etausadors
of the Buropan powers have made
representations to Rechsd Pasha regarding the projected departure *t the
Turkish delegates, which is equivalent to a definite rupture of the peace
negotiations, for whieh Turkey _-��otv
atdsred responsible.
' In reply Rechad Pasha aald he era*
not responsible for the suspension of
Ike conference, which was decreed by
the Balkan allies, not only aria-out
asking hla ���oplhlpi.^uf even, without-
permitting him to express It when he
beggad leave to do so. He had waited
��� whole week, hoping that reflection
would bring the allies to more reasonable attd modrate Views, but aa-no fle-
clre had' been manifested to hear
what further rectification of the frontier Turkey was prepared to Indicate
���Without ceding Adrlanople���the
Turkish delegates could not remain
In London Indefinitely.
In deference to England .and the
other powers, whose ambassadors regretted the rupture of the negotiations, Rechad Pasha consented to telegraph to Constantinople asking for
definite Instructions.
The allies also are tired of waiting.
They do not believe the note the powers will present ln Constantinople will
have the desired effect, but not wishing to take a decisive step without
due notice to Europe they have notified Sir Edward Grey and the ambassadors of their Intention to denounce
the armistice contemporaneously with
or shortly after the presentation of
the note to the'pbrte''-"1*'
The allies will be ready to resume
the war four   days   later.   In   faot,
Greece haa not aaaed hostilities. Servia has nothing more to conquer.
With respect to Montenegro, Ure:

Turkey,,whose snUkuis have made frequent sol-lien from Scutari. There-!

All the resptmsil.i��i!t�� fo/ttie^gravlty

of lack of accord, to adopt measures

TWs failure of agreement, even, if
manifested ln a passive manner, the
allies point out, gives encouragement
to the Turks, whose hope Is that they
will succeed Anally, as they have th
the past In playing oft the powers one
against the other.
The attitude of, the powers, It' Is added, also encourages Roumanla to'take!

If ever there was need for the citizens to take a
broad view of matters affecting the welfare of New
Westminster it is at this present moment. . The mayor
and aldermen will tonight render a full account of the
manner in which they have performed the tasks entrusted to them, and we believe that their stories will
speak for themselves.
The point of view of some candidates for civic office
���appears to be of the narrowest, especially with regard to
the street improvement work effected during the past
year. It is not claimed that the whole of the streets are
In as good condition as we would like to see them, but no
sane man can argue that because he may get his boots
muddy in going to his own home the Board of Works department needs reorganizing.
The past year has seen a wonderful transformation
In this particular branch of civic endeavor, for, under the
business-like administration of Alderman Kellington, the
various departments have been co-ordinated under City
Engineer Blackman and Superintendent Furness, with
the result that the whole Board of Works staff has been
���convinced of the good results within their grasp, and has
loyally co-operated with its management. In this way a
large saving of civic money and an avoidance of departmental bickering has been effected.
It will be remembered that the Board of Works early
last year planned out its program of work for 1912. This
was exhibited in the store windows, the people were told
what it would cost and they responded by voting the
money required. It will be found that not only has the
whole of this work been done, but, in addition, much
work unforeseen last January and which has arisen during
the year, has also been completed. In many ways 1912
has proved to be a record year and it is important to note
among so many achievements that never before in the history of Westminster has so much permanent improve-
ment work been taken in hand and completed as during W����J vod^i^r^ wmtlve

est and finest tubers are found, on
cutting, to be hollow. This Is an occurrence which is not uncommon in
seasons which have favored the rapid
growth of the tuber, and for a similar reason it is found more commonly ln large tubers than in those of
small or medium size.
A potato grows by the addition of
j new layers of tissue Blightly below
the skin. The cells composing this
; tissue are at first small but rapidly
expand to their full size, and in .��> do-
', lug set up a state of tension. The lay-
'era of cells towards the outside, being young, are capable of dividing and
, expanding In a similar way so that
'an external (tracking or splitting   is
j avoided. It is different, however, with
tha tlsjue In the interior.
This Is composed of mature cells
'no longer In a state cf growth, and
if thi' tension becomes too great a
I tearing or rupture of the tissue will
I result, followed by degeneration and
I the formation of a cavity.
Cavities of this nature are much
j less serious than injuries on the out-
Bide of tho tubers, since the latter per-
! mlt of the entrance of numerous organisms of various kinds which cause
rotting. They do, however, necessl-
j tato Increased trouble In preparing
1 potatoes for the table since the' discolored surface of the cavity muBt be
cut away.
Hollow potatoes are particularly objectionable for baking. However, the
factor of rapid growth which la liable
to bring about tills condition Is In the
main oi.e neces.iary to the securing
f a large yield, and moat farmers
'.ill probably prefer to so stimulate
tjTOWth bv cultivation and fertilizers
is tc attain tills end and take the risk
of a certain proportion of tubers becoming hollow.
Daring thn past season there have
a  good  many  complaints  from
growers  that,  although     the
yield bas been good, many of thr lars-,
of ull Russian customs is the assembling of the family group about a jar
of water, In the belief that, if their
faith la strong enough, the miracle
performed by Jesus by turning water
Into wine will be repented. Their
faith Is never equal to the performance of the miracle, but thev are not
discouraged, and hope for better success next New Year.

Of chairs themselves, perhaps the

It harks back to tbe days of the

wanted to keep their feet off the cold,
draughty, rush-Uttered floors. Hence
the stretcher. Originally, the stretcher waa only a tew Inches above the

and room* became more comfortable,
the stretcher gradually lost ita importance.

Tlic editorial stuff for the college
paper, Lux Cclitniblnna, has been
elected for the winter term. Owing to
resignations by the editor-in-chief
Mr. Best, and several of the sub-editors, the staff Is considerably changed,
and now stands as follows:    Editor-in
taryship in the ministry of finance ls
abolished temporarily.
This ministerial crisis was the
direct outcomo of the reinstatement
of Lieutenant Colonel Du Paty De
Clam in the French territorial army.
The reinstatement led to dramatic
sessions of the cabinet, at which M.
Mlllerand explained thnt he felt ln
honor bound to re-establish Paty De
Clam In support of a promise by his
predecessor In the war ministry, M.
Messimy, but as this act was'causing
serious attnckB against the ministry,
he desired to withdraw.
Premier Polncalre admitted had the
minister of war conferred with him
he could not have seen hi3 way clear
to ratify the reinstatement of Du Paty
De Clam. Nevertheless he wanted to
stand by the war minister and believed it was the duty of the entire
ministry to resign.
The. decision of the cabinet to remain in office Is accredited to the influence of Arlstlde Boland, minister of

in February.
Mr. Quezon, who left today for Boston to address the Atlantic club tomorrow night on the independence issue, in reply to President Taft's suggestions in his message to congress,
said he plannd to later confer with
Governor Wilson.
In his Boston speech, In reply to
President Taft and his presentation ol
the case to President-elect Wilson, Mr.
Quezon said he would suggest a practical plan by which the Democratic
party might c:s_*y out the pledges
of Phllllplne Independence.
"The president" said Mr. Quezon tonight, "should send to the archipelago
as governor-general a man who sympathize with and is thoroughly ln accord with Phllllplne Independence and
who has the courage of his sonvic-
A governor-general can make or mar
independence plans. Ue could if he
wished, bring about the e3tabllsh-
ment of an Independent government
within the four years of Prsident Wilson's administration. I believe congress will pass the Jones bill for an
experimental period of eight years and
absolute Independence thereafter, but
wo have a fight ahead of us.
"Even with the enactment of the
lonos bill, the president, if he wished,
of his own authority could establish
a provisional Phllllplne government.
Th<, real chance with'n the eight years

Jones bill Is the establishment of an

city yesterday that "field ice may be
expected about February 1." But 11
may come before, the fierce north'
westerly gales of December contrtbu
ting to the ice movement toward the
steamship lane. Tho Hydrographic of
flee In Washington announced yesterday, having in view the possibility ol
the ice coming down lower than normally, that the southerly tracts beginning on February 15 and ending on
August 14, when all fear of bergs i>
past, would be slightly lower than
the present winter tracks, but away
south of berg danger.
The Hydrographic office has had a
conference with the steamship representatives and they have agreed to
have their commanders cross, when
westbound, 47 degresB west longitude,
in 41 degrees north latitude; east-
bound skippers will cross 47 degrees
west longtitude in 40 degrees north
latitude. This is in pursuance of the
suggestion of Captain Jamison, of the
American liner St. Paul. The new
lanes will be more comfortable In the
bitter early months of the year, ae
much ccoter weather and heavy gales
will be avoided.
The new routes are net so low as
those adopted just after the Titanic
disaster, but they arc subject to
change in case ice comes down in
unusual quantities later. The impression of navigators is that the bergs
will be numerous this season because

Father of  System    Ha*   HI*   Doubts
Now���M��y Return to Curing of
Montreal, Jan. 12.���Has cold storage
ln Canada defeated the very object for
which it was initiated?
ProtesBor James Robertson, the
head of the Conservation Commission,
who may be said to be the father of
cold storage in Canada, is now by no
means sure that the system which he
so sedulously fostered bas been an unmixed blessing; ln fact, he has hinted
that it may be fraught with grave
danger to the well-being of the people.
The original intention of Dr. Robertson was that cold storage should be
used to preserve food products in
fresh condition while in transit from
the producer to the consumer. The
actual result, he says, appears to have
been the building up of huge cold
storage Interests, whose object Ib to
buy products when they are cheap and
hold them out of the market till they
become high.
One of the things for which Dr. Robertson had hoped much from cold storage was the delivery of the products
of the Atlantic fisheries in a fresh condition to the ever-growing population
on the prairies. He now admits that
he has little hope of this being done,
for in actual practice the fish is held
so long in cold storage before it
reaches the consumer that it is generally deteriorated in quality.
He states that fish is one of the
things that deteriorate rapidly in cold
storage, and is now a question whether much harm is not done to the
health of the people by holding fish
and otber perishable products out of
the market for indefinite periods by
these means.
So marker", is the failure of cold
storage in regard to the delivery of
fresh fish in Canada, that Dr. Robertson is now suggesting that the government should Institute experiments
with a view to a new system of curing fish���a system of very mild curing, which would give the result almost of fresh fish. The present mc'h-
Jds of curing by heavy applications of
3alt militates against the popularity
in the prairies of cod and other fish,
which exists in such boundless prolusion in Canada'B Atlantic fisheries,
while such fish preserved by cold storage has often been in cold storage so
long that it is harmful to the dlges

Mr. Sims obtained the floor during

an editorial lauding the Presidentelect for the stand taken ln this matter. "Under the English lay, they
did not punish the King for any wrong,

In 18S2 he was on board the Condor
with Lord Charles Beresford at the

the South African campaign, and had
some thrilling adventures during the

provides a striking illustration of his

under which he worked.

staled In a Westminster paper of
Saturday that Mr. W. S. ltose was in
the field for councillor for ward two.
an Interview with the same gentleman
1'iis afternoon confirmed the first announcement of The News that he was
out for school trustee and would- not
trespass on the territory of Mr. Macpherson, who appears to be the sole
aspirant as representative of the ward
in the 191. council.
Mr. Hose had been approached by
several of the residents of Edmonds
���KikiiiK him to run against    Mr. Mac-
I pherson, but the action of the Edmonds Ratepayers' Association In endorsing the latter for councillor left
j no other course open to Mr, Rose hut
In decline.
It  is  expected  that  Mr.  Hose  will
1 appear on the public platform during
of all kinds in great variety. Try our
