Gibb Believes Typographical

Victoria, Jan. 21.���Because
Crown would be at liberty to rearrest
Charles Dean Immedlateyl upon his
dlsoharge, Mr. Justice Gregory announced yesterday morning that he
would reserve Judgment In the adjourned habeas corpus application for
Dean's release, made In chambers tbls
morning by Adam S. Johnston.
Mr. Johnston argued that the magistrate's committment of Dean was
for trial at the next court of competent Jurisdiction, end that the court
hod sat and adjourned without a trial
and hence that tbe warrant of commitment bad er.plrcd. He maintained
that no application for traverse to the
Mr. Harry Glbb'returned yesterday
from Olympla, Wash., where he repre
sented New Westminster Typographical Union No. 632 at the Northwestern
Typographical conference held on
Sunday last. Mr. Gibb's presence at
t(   j the gathering was primarily for   the
1 purpose of discovering whether It waa
worth while for tbe British Columbia
unions to affiliate wltb the northwestern body and now that he has returned he saya be (irmly believes that
it would be.
There are many good reasons why
the li. C. Unions should affiliate with
the American body, states Mr. Gibb,
and If amalgamation was brought
about he feel3 assured that the 191&
convention of the body would be held
| .ii British Columbia. Next year it
Is scheduled for Portland, Oregon.

the treatment shown him at the con-

Senator, in Vigorous Speech in the Senate, Says That if President Taft's Stand Is
Taken by Country, Americans Will Be False to Their Pledged Word and Will Be
Known the World Over as a Slippery and Cunning Nation���President Approves of
Note Prepared by State Department.
Washington, Jan. 21.���"Shall we inform the world that the United States
Is false to Its agreements, false to its
pledged word? Shall we have It made
known the world over tbat you must

With this vigorous denunciation of
the attitude of thia country in the
Panama canal controversy with Great
Britain, Senator Kliliu Hoot cloaed a
two hour speech in the senate today
with an appeal for the submission of
the Panama question to arbitration, or
tbe repeal of that section of tbe canal
law that would give free passage to
American coastwise  ships.
Speaking from the experience of a
member of President Hooacvetl'a cabl
Crown as should have been done, and ! In all the discussions. The conference I net, when the Panama canal zone was
****^mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^      - ' purchased, and when over 25 arbitra
tion treaties were made with foreign
nations, Senator Root delivered a most
vigorous attack on tbe present attitude of tho United States.
lt  became  known,    following    the
I senator's address, tbat Senator llr.ui-
that no notice bad been given the ac
cused that his case would not be gone
tin with. What had happened was
that counsel -for the accused hsd asked the frown's intention and bin lordship had replied that tbe Crowa had
Ihe right to traverse If it chow. Application, Mr. Johnston, maintained,
waa not made.
Replying for the Crown, H. A. Mac-
Lean, K.C., stated that thc warrant
of commitment waa good until by one
course of law the prisoner waa discharged, and maintained that the proper time for habeaa corpus proceed-
Inga wua at the assizes.
His lorcltlilp said the prisoner was
badly used by the Crown, inasmuch
as he waa not notified that the case
would not go on, but since tbe Crown
was closed with a banquet at which
the Westminster man waa royally received.

note prepared at thc state department
ln repy to the communcatlon from Sir
Edward Grey, the British secretary
for foreign affairs, protesting against
the exemption of American coastwise
shipping from tbe payment of tolls In
the Panama canal.
As a matter of Official courtesy Information ls withheld as to the exact contents of the note; until it has
ben received by the Britiah government ln London, through the American embassy  there.
It Is learned today that Mr. Bryce,
the British ambassador, had been invited to the state department a week
ago and had listened to an explanation in detail of the American position
by Chandler Anderson, counsellor for
the state department.
It la believed here that after attempting to eliminate a number of
propositions ln the British note, considered not genuine to tbe real Issue,

ready now to admit that our country, ��j0es not necessarily Include the Unit-
through Its presidents and congreseea j ea states and that it is entirely corn-
has been guilty of false pretencea, of, petent for this government to treat
humbug, of talking to the  galleries, t its own shipping differently from1 that
equal concessions were made to Co-
reign ships. The claim that the United States had domestic rights over
the canal because It owned the canal
zone, consttuted a violation of the express guarantee of the United States
to Great Britain.   He said:
"It le not our territory except In
trust. Treaty or no treaty, we have
long asserted that the nations of Central America had no right to debar
the world from Its light of passage
across the Isthmus. Upon that we
based the Justice of our entire action,
which resulted In our having the
canal zone."
The United Statea had preached arbitration for years,, Senator Root declared, and had besought the nations
of the world, "In season and out of
season," to enter into arbitration
agreements for the settlement of all

"Have we been Insincere and  false?

We are glad to note that the suggestions put forward
in these columns some six weeks ago, calling attention to
the lack of life saving apparatus upon the city waterfront,
have now been brought to the notice of the Board of
Trade, and we trust that by their expressed interest in this
matter no less than by the example of the C. P. R. authorities, who took immediate steps to repair the omission, the
remainder of those firms and interests now upon the
waterfront will co-operate in this vital matter.
The lighting of the southern part of the Fraser bridge
is a subject which is also receiving due consideration, and
-we trust that ere long we may be able to announce that improvements have been begun.
There is still one matter to which the attention of our
readers was directed last month, and which appears to
have escaped attention. That is in the better policing of
the bridge. In view of the fact that the bridge is practically the one outlet from the lower mainland to the border,
wc feel that adequate police provision should be made
there, for, by this means, many of the escapes of daring
criminals, incidents which have been all too frequent during the past few years, may be lessened considerably.

Pounder of Modern Medicine.
The first great physician of modern times in England waa Thomas
l.inacre, who was born at Canterbury 453 years ago today. Linacre
waa born twenty-threu years before
Paraoelsus, and was the predessor by
more than a century of tho great Harvey.
The dogmatic age of medicine still
���reva'led In I,inacre's time, but like
Paracelsus and Harvey, he attacked
tho crude and superstitious practices'
with great vigor.
l.inacre graduated from the medical
college at Padua. On thc occeasion
of Henry V11I. he was appointed the
C'ng's physician, and in his private
practice attended the greatest men
of his time.
Ho established tho Royal College
of Physicians in London, the first
���treat institution of its kind, and was
its first president. Before Llnacre's
time the offices of physician and
chaplain to English kings hand usually
been combined in the same person,
who looked after both the spiritunl
and physical welfare of his monarch.
The first mandate for tho attendance of a physician at the English
court was Issued In 1464 by Henry

to many aufflcient activities, drawing
together women of many varying I
shades of opinion and culture to work '
side by side for whatever social need
is felt in their own particular neighborhood.
Its preaident believes thai the need
of the child ln rural Ireland should
be put first, tender cafe being exercised as to its food, education and

for a proper aupply of milk, which
have been established wnero they

Chief cf Police Has Drawn Up Weird
and Wonderful List of
Berlin, Jan. 21.���Berlin Is at present asking itself whether to laugh
at or be angry with the new llBt ot
police regulations with which the Indefatigable chief of police has promised to saddle the German capital.
lt ls perhaps a compliment to the
city that such explicit direction* ��n
such points should be framed, in order
to encourage perfection among ita
Inhabitants, but the question is, can
some more useful and practical compliment could not be found In their
Here is an extract from the regulation as to the conduct of the mere
pedestrian as the chief of police has
compounded them;
Pedestrians are to keep to the right
both on the pavements and on tbe
roadway; anyone who cornea to a
standstill must -choose a position
where he is no hindrance to passers-
by; all unnecessary halting or loitering on the roadway reaerved to carriages, bicycles and motor cars, ts
forbidden. This refers also to tbe
crossing of the thoroughfare.
Streets are to be crossed by the
shortest way; that la to say, at right
angles. It ts recommended tbat the
roadway shall not be crossed at any
point that may be chosen at random,
but at the street corners ln order to
have  the  greatest  regard  to  safety.
*>t crossings where police officials
are on duty to regulate the traffic,
pedestrians are to await the moment
that the- traffic has been brought to
a etaudstill before crossing. The
street shall be crossed with a rapid
;*tep, though without undue haste, so
That the drlvere may know bow to
direct their vehiclea.
There ia such a mixture of the plain
eat common aenae wltb the flights of
pure Idealism in tbis paragraph that
so far it bos not been taken very
seriously. Berlin, no doubt, will take
It Just as much to heart as the traffic police, and perhaps rather mor*.-
If there ia any real trouble.
But although It may be uBeful on
occasion tor the police to have a spare
regulation or two in pocket ln order
to be able to make special assertion
cf their authority, some would fear
for their liberty, as many others
would for the comfort of their sides
If the police were given full Instruction to sec to the application of all
theae rulea and were left as sole
Judges as ti whether the pedestrian
were crossing the street at a right
angle and with "quickened step."
Were every ono of these reguln
tioiiH to be applied most of the traffic
police would have to have a book at
hand as large as a banker's ledger,
and would probably have to engage
a typewriter with a knowledge of
Ths) fact ls Berlin ts more and more
a busy up-to-date capital, -where epei-4
has almost as much value as It has
In London. Paris or New York. What
Is mere Important in the new regulations, and what has caused real concern, is th* clause relating to advertisements. Among other things, the
use of red Is entirely forbidden.
All advertisements In the open
come under special police control;
special renditions are Imposed on Illuminated signs, and every sign of
any kind bearing letters more thsn an
Inch and a quarter long are required
to recelev police sanction. The regulations do not into effect until April

Best Artists In Country Cannot There
Earn More Than $4,000
Per Year.
Paris. Jan. 21.- The budget of the
French bureau of fine arts for 1911,
including figures concerning the work
of the Comedle Francaise, has Just
been reported and discussed In tbe
Chamber of Deputies, It ls amazing
During the season of 1911 no less
than 144 comedies and 34 tragedie*-.
were given. One wonders what the
young men of the American stage
would say if they were asked to study
three or four parts of week.
Among the pieces given at the Comedle Francaise were "Anthony," Alexandre Dumas; "Maitre Kavllla," by
George Sand; "Voulotr," by Bataille;
"Oedipus at Colonna," by Rivollet;
"Macbeth," "Cleopatra," "Lea ldeea
de Madame- Aubray," by Dumaa Fils;
and "Nob Intlmes," by Sardou.
The World correspondent went to
the theatre to learn what sort of emolument such hard work gained for
the art'sts. The figures, most courteously supplied by the management,
are interesting and instructive.
The receipts for tbe season amounted to $440,000, and tbe government
subsidy was $52,000. As the theatre
ii rent free one may add another
$50,000, making a grand total of over
half a million dollara a year ln the
sbape of Income. Furthermore, endowments of vaxious sorts, Including
a million franca given by Napoleon 1.
place the financial arrangements of
the theatre in an unique position.
Company Numbers Seventy-two.
There are seventy-two members of
the company now employed at the
Comedo Francaise and after actual
running expenses, light, costumes,
jcencry and so on are paid, the bal
ance of the receipts ls divided amour
'he artists In tbls fashion: Upon entering the Comedie Francaise one ir
git "ti three-twelfths of a share amounting in about $600 per annum, wblch
advance! according to merit until the
artist is in receipt of a salary of $24UI)
This remuneration, however, comes
(o the actor which, j he works or not,
and In addition to t'.i's be is paid
$10 for each matinee performance and
$2 for each evening's work. When
two plays are given in one evening
the fees amount to $3.
From this scale of wages it will be
seen thnt tlicai players, the greatest
and most carefully aelected of France
are not overpaid, nor are they able
to exactly tell what their annual Income will be, because when pieces
with but few characters are put on
a large number ot the company arc
out tt the cast, and Idle.
Some actors play only thirty or
forty times a year, while others play
as often as four times a week, the
average probably being under one
hundred performances per annum
From thi--. it will be seen that even
the  moat   popular actur.  -who  lm kstpil l��** '?*/'���
In pracUcolly every cast, cannot earn   ***** w
more than about $4000 a year.    This ��ner io 11
may explain why Madame Bernhardt, <����� '���'     "

Lcndon, Jan. 21.���The London posl

several "mouse-trap makers," and un

who was the founder of the mouse
trap business, died two years ago. She
does not make the trapa herself. Thlt,

London, Jan. 21.���Whether the old
portico of St. Martln's-le-Grand goes
to SL Chad's Hall, Durham (wblcb
haB petitioned for it as a facade for ita
new building) or not, lt will ln all
probability be lost to London, like
Temple Bar and so many other relics
wblch we know no more.
The list is a long and interesting
objects which have been removed out
one; and it need not be confined to
of London, tor even within the circle
ot the metropolis there have been
some notable "transplanting*." The
most recent instance is that of Crosby
Hall, In Blshopsgate, which was removed in 1901-8, and the materials
were afterwards used ln the resurrected building now forming tbe hall
at the Chelsea hostel, ln connection
with the University of London.
ln a recent interview, Mr. Philip
Norman, F.S.A., expressed hla pleasure that the celled timber roof, a
splendid example of late fifteenth-
century work, together with the bay
window and other interesting mediaeval features of the building, had been
preserved, and said tbat Mr. Walter
H. Godfrey, the architect, was to be
congratulated on the admirable and
skilful way In whicb he had put together the present Crosby Hall,
though, of course, It was little more
than a museum of fragments of the original.
Loee Their Charm.
"In a general way," added Mr. Norman, "buildings very largely lose
their Interest If removed from the
place for which they were designed.
Much of their charm consists tn their
being suited to their environment, and
In the local association connected with
Gothic architecture, he explained,
lent itself to removal worse than any
other style. In renaissance buildings
the stones could be numbered and re-
erected In the same order tn another
place, though the new structure would
lose the charm of ita environment. It
was tor thla reason thst it had been
possible to rebuild old Temple Bar
with considerable success. It was removed in 1878, and ten years later It
waa re-erected as the entrance to
Theobald'a Park, Sir Henry Meux's
property at Che-shunt.
Other   Buildings.
Other well-known features have
been removed from time to time with
the Idea of their being re-erected, but
unfortunately tbe Intention has not
been carried out. One such instance
is the beautiful old colonnade which
fronted old Burlington House, in Piccadilly, which waB pulled down in 1866.
The ftonrs were all carefully removed
to Battersea Park, where the colonnade was to be rebuilt, but the work
was never carried out. and the fate of
tbe ruins appears to be shrouded ln
The Seven male column, svhic.h once
marked tbe Darting ol the -sskts at
that busy centre, still exists, though ln
a very defaced condition, and may be
inspected on Weybridge Green. It
was pulled down in 1773, on the supposition that a considerable sum of
money was buried at Its base, but
none was found. It was removed first
to Sayea Court, Addlestone, but in 1822
the Inhabitants of Weybridge acquired
It and erected It as a memorial of the
benevolent Frederlca, Duchess of
York, who resided for thirty years at
Oatlands, and it remains to the present
In Museums Now.
Other relics which have changed
their aites Include the famous portico
of Carleton House, Pall Mall, which
waa pulled down ia 1828 and transferred to the National Gallery, Hun-
gerford Bridge, which was superseded
by Charing Cross Railway Bridge In
1863, and now forms the well-known
Clifton Suspension Bridge across the
Avon, which was opened Just 48 yeara
ago; and an alcove from old London
Bridge, intended in those daya a* a
place of refuge for pedestrians and
now preserved ���* ah interesting relic
in the grounds ot Guy's Hospital.
Many tpylcal bit* of old London
have foond a resting place in the museums, and several of her statues and
well-known landmarks have undergone
some amusing adventures.

To Non-Believers
There are men who do not believe in advertising���
good men and wise, but that signifies naught. It is but a
brief while since many believed that the earth was flat,
but is was round all the time. The earth did not change
its shape; men merely altered their views. The point
of it all is that there are established facts in business just
as there are established facts in nature and belief or disbelief does not change the facts.
Suppose, for instance, you were to say "I do not believe in darkness; I do not want darkness."    Will it not
grow dark tonight quite the same as though you were
heartily in favor of it?
- You may not like the telephone or typewriter or adding machine���thousands of persons do not���but these are
established instruments in today's activities and your feelings will not alter the fact. To refuse to use them stamps
you as-being behind the times, and competition with the
man or business which does use them is no longer possible
for the man or business Which doetrrot use them. *���
The time has passed for giving serious attention to
the man who does not believe in advertising. Advertising
is as much a part of today's life as electricity, antiseptic
surgery or trolley traction.
The system under which he who has something to
r,ell tells about it to those who do or should use it, is a
proven, established, actual fact and no single fact has
ever yet been whipped by an army of opinions.
Broadly speaking, it is easier and more profitable to
��bey the Law than to try to break it. If it is a good Law
it cannot be resisted. Tackle the Law of Gravity, for instance, and see how far you get with your opposition.
. ... *Tteels*iWof l>*-manAte)'*-*A*^
just as natural as the Law of Gravity. Both work day and
night, weekdays, holidays and Sundays and they always
pull downward.
Down at the bottom of all commercial success there,
is Demand insistently tugging away. If Demand can be
circumscribed and focused and tied to your product, you.
have done a big thing and middlemen by the score can no-
more stand against it than can a few layers of fleecy
cloud keep Gravity from accomplishing its effective-
work, s
This is no preachment against the powerful importance of the wholesale or retail merchant The manufacturer who neglects the dealer in any advertising campaign he may inaugurate is indeed lacking in foresight.
"Forcing the trade" to carry a line has long since
given way to better methods. Co-operation is better than
coercion. But as a foundation for success nothing can
take the place of a powerful consumers'demand.
No one can want anything until he knows of its existence and its fitness for filling his requirements. Advertising is a way by which people are toM why they
should have your goods and, at the sane time, taught how
they may identify them.
..-- The method to backed by.gcod logic and good sense���
just the same sort of plain, prosaic business reasoning
whieh is required Inany other line of work.
There is nothing magicafar mysterious about it and
greatest advertising successes have keen signularly free
from the frills and furbelows with which some advcitis-*-,
ing men seek to invest this plainest am) simplest aid to
present day merchandise dlstriUtkn^From "The Ayer

The unusual snow of the past three
weeks haa caused another roof caving In accident. Early yesterday
morning a large barn owned by J. A.
Fleger on Eighth street suddenly collapsed on account of the heavy layer
of snow that had accumulated on its
roof. Inside the barn at the time of
the accident was boused two horses,
five cows, and a number of chickens
but these escaped without Injury.
It waB only about two weeks ago
that the warehouse on the wharf of
the B. C. Transfer Company, situated Just east of the bridge gave way
under the weight of snow.
The snowfall during the past three
weeks has been almost unprecedented
in the history of the city, no less than
44.20 inches having been recorded by
the city engineer's department.
Except for n continuation of the
tie-up on the Sixth street line of the
B. C. E. R., no great disruption was
caused In the city car service. Not
eo the interurban lines, however, as
great difficulty was experienced in
getting through to Vancouver on the
Central Park line early yesterday. In
tact for some considerable time the
cars could not get past Central Park
and some passengers who were beut
upon reaching Vancouver were forced
to "mush" through the deep snow
to their destination. This condition
of affairs held sway unti after 10
o'clock when the line was again got
into order.
Bad in Vancouver.
In Vancouver both yesterday and today the greatest difficulty was experienced by the B. C. E. U. in establishing j-ggular city service, this despite the* fact that a whole army of
men were working continuously for
practically   24   hours,   endeavoring   to

In the County court yesterday
morning Judge Howay dismissed an
action brought against Robert McLaren of Langley municipality by
Natha Singh, a Hindu contractor for
$750 claimed to bo due on a certain
clearing contract.
The Hindu claimed that he agreed
to partially clear seven and a half
acrea of Mr. McLaren's land at $100
per acre but the defendant produced
a written contract showing that $100
ftMrthe entire acreage was all that waB
to be paid when the work was finished.
This contract it waa stated waB
mane In the presence of Mrs. McLaren, wife of the defendant and explained to the Hindu contractor at his
own request.
Singh at that time It was also stated fully understood the contract and
hail viewed the scene of the clearing
which consisted of gathering, piling
and burning the brush, cedar tops and
rotten irtumpe on the land.
After the work was finished the
Hindu waa given $100, but he claimed
that $650 more was due him which
Mr.'McLaren refused to acknowledge
and accordingly the matter was carried to court.
His honor took the view that the
written contract was tlie one agreed
upon and dismissed the action with
costs assessed to the plaintiff.
Mr. 0, L. Tachereau of Vancouver,
appeared for the plaintiff, while Mr.
Hampton Bole conducted the defence.

Will Preside   Over   School   Trustees
This Year���Plans for 1913 Will
Be Mapped Out Caturday.
West Burnaby, Jan. 21.-���Mr. F.
Temple Cliff was elected chairman cf
(li2 Burnaby school board for the
coming year, at a meeting held thit
evening. Mr. Cliff headed the polls
on Saturday for school trustee, coming a cloBe second to the given to
Reeve McGregor. This is his sixth
year on the board and the llrst time
that he has assumed the post of chairman.
No opposition was made to the
nomination, all the trustees, Messrs.
Sanderson, Patterson, Morrison and
Floss, favoring Mr. Cliff as their head
for the year 1913.
Little business was transacted, this
being left over until Saturday after
noon when a program for the coming
year will be mapped out.
The remarkable growth in school
attendance in Burnaby during tht
past year, and which shows no abate
ment at the present time, will mean
a strenuous amount of work for the
school board; and, although over
$100,000 was voted by the electorate
en Saturday last to be used for school
purposes, the affairs will have to be
carefully considered in order to keep
within the estimates.
l^ast year requests were made on
the provincial government for aid
and this waa to a small extent answered, but not enough to satisfy all
the districts.

game. The local owner intimates
that bis club has been reorganized be

London, Jan. 21.���Forty-five dollars
per minute waa tbe cost of an extraordinary trial wblcb has just come
to an end in tbe British Chancery
court, and haa proved the most expensive on record ln thla country. It
lasted 12 days, and the documents on
each side weighed half a ton.
This legal battle, ln wblch no less
than five K. C.'a and a whole galaxy
of "juniors" were engaged, aroae out
of a $5,000,000 contract mode by John
Alrd ft Co., the famous English eu
ginoerlng firm, tor tbe building ot a
dock at Singapore for tbe Tanjong
Pagar Dock board, Alrd & Co. claiming $2,000,000,000 damages for alleged misrepresentations regarding the
strata through which the trenches
bed  to be  sunk.
The opening statement ot W. H.
Upjohn, K. C, took four days, and be
called twenty-four witnesses. Most
of their testimony, of course, was
technical, but some of It was exceedingly funny. Among other things, it
was affirmed that there ia no mud
ln tbe world to compare with Singapore mud, which ls slithery, oily, watery and impossible to handle."
Those of Aird's men who did not
catch fever got some form of skin
disease, the frogs made a, noise at
night "like a motor-bus in Fleet
street," the timber fell In, and If a
man slipped into the mud, he disappeared unless somebody was near to
pull him out, and then he left his
boots behind. If a tool dropped into
thc mud, it was gone forever.
The dock 'board denied misrepresentation, declaring that the plaintiffs
were well aware of the conditions,
and claimed to hove suffered a loss
of $2,500,000 through Messrs Alrd
not carrying out the contract. The
Judge, Mr. Justice Parker, held thai
there had been a blunder from carelessness, but no Intention to deceive,
and reserved judgment on other
W. H. Upjohn, K. C, tho leader for
Messrs Aird, received $12,500 on being briefed, nnd the leader on the
other side $10,000, each getting a
"refresher" of $500 per day of the
trial. In the fees paid, the mass of
documents and the time occupied, this
case beats the previous record-holder,
the famous "Wvler vs. Lewis" action
in the King's Bench Division, which
lasted thirty-five days and was known
aa the "everlasting case."

London, Jan. 21.���The British government Is to pay the National Telephone Company of the United Kingdom the eum of $62,576,320 in reaped
of the transfer of the company'a system to the state, according to a decision just reached by the Railway
and Canal commission, sitting as a
court of arbitration.
The whole of the telephones of the
British Isles passed Into the hands
of the state on Jan. 1, 1912. The National Telephone Company originally
claimed $106,000,000 for its interests,
but during the trial, which lasted 73
days, this claim was reduced by many
millions by way of agreemeut.
It had been expected by the Ix>n-
don stock exchange that the National
Telephone wouid receive $80,-
000,000 to $1)0,000,000. The atock ol
tbe company, which at one time stood
on the list at 162, and which had been
at 141 for some time, immediately upon the announcement of the award
fell to 109.
During the trial, the parties came
to an agreement aa to the coet of
the plant, the sum being $51,668,825.
The court then had to decide the per
centages which should properly be
added to that sum and also the depreciation to which the whole cost ot
construction when ascertained, should
be subjected.
.Tbe Railway and Canal commission
consists of five judges of the High
Court. These are: Sir A. T. Lawrence. Lord MacKenzie, Justice Madden, Justice A. E. Gathorne-Hardy,
and Sir J. T. Woodhouse.

Dr. Murray told the committee that
the unsuitable and somctimeo Insufficient dietary is causing Berious

excessive indigence ln overbrewed
"The great feature of this decadence," tho report goes on to say, "is

Its place. _
"Probably more than 60 per cent,
of the children, go to school on a
breakfast of tea and bread. The former ls usually long brewed. A large
proportion of these children live so
far from school that tbey cannot go
home for the midday meat, and work
all day on this Inadequate breakfast."

Minister of Mllltla Aims to Follow the
Lines of Officers Training Corps
n  Britain.
Ottawa, Jan. 21 ���It is expected that
the estimates, when brought down,
will be found to include appropriations for drill halls in connection with
the University of Toronto and McGill
University. The erection of these
halls will enable the u: iverslties to
embark seriouBly upon the work of
the officers' training corps, in which
the minister of militia is deeply Interested.
Much has been done in Great Britain through the officers' training
corps to prepare young men who are
attending Institutions of learning to
become leaders of the community In
military as well as in  civil matters.
Students at universities are regarded as men fitted by their intelligence,
spirit, t(nd social position tb become
offlcera In the citizen forces of the
country, and accordingly, such cf thes
as volunteer are given training with
tho special purpose of qualifying
them as officers.
The movement has assumed large
proportions in the Mother Country,
and is expected to do wel In Canadian
universities as soon as facilities, such
as drill halls, and armouries, are provided.
Both McGill and Toronto authorities have shown much interest in the
proposals. Principal Peterson was in
the city te>day with regard to the matter, and members of the board of
governors of Toronto University have
recently been in communicaton with
the   minister.
It's the Work.

quoting an unnamed diplomatic representative of a great power in tho

outrages perpetuated upon the defence

"The number of those masoacred la

All the assets of the Bank have been aa usual carefully revalued and ample
provieion has been made for all bad and doubtful debt .
In accordance with an agreement entered Into ln December, 1911, thla
Bank took over on 1st March laBt, the business of the  Eastern   Townships
Bank, with headquarters at Sherbrooks, Que., and ninety-nine branchca and
EUb-agenciee, chiefly situated in the Eastern Townships District of the Province of Quebec.   In addition to fifty-two new branches and thirty two sub-
agencies in the Province of Quebec the Bank thus acquired new offices at Cole-
' man and Taber, Alberta; Grand Forks, Keremeos, Midway, Naramata, Phoenix,
Summerland and Vancouver (two offices), British Columbia,  and   Winnipeg.
i Manitoba.    The business of the Eastern Townships Bank brancheB at Leth-
, bridge, Princeton, Quebec and Victoria, was at once transferred to our own of-
I fires, and later ln the year the business of their principal offices in Montreal
' aud Winnipeg was also consolidated with our branches ln those cities, the
change at Winnipeg taking place as Boon after thc opening of our new building as it could conveniently be effected.   The nine months' experience which
we have had with the new business haa given ub every reason to feel satisfied
with our purchase.

He contended that the average

her purse, being tempted by marked-

He added:
"The tendency of the average woman Is to buy everything aa cheaply

of economy. It ls difficult to convince a housewife of this fact, but
when abe once realizes lt then she is
on the true  road to making money.

Two Serious Accidents Have Mads His
Condition Precarious.
Dublin, Jan. 21.���His colleagues of
the Nationalist party rear that tbe
British House or Commons will see
little oT John Dillon In the future. Two
serious accidents have reduced him to
a state of health that demands peace,
rest and quietness.
His attendance during the debates
on the home rule bill severely taxed
his physical resources, and he would
have taken a more conspicuous part
In the discussions that followed bod
his health permitted. On the financial
clauses particularly he was by no
means In agreement with his leader,
John Redmond, and would have fought
for better terms had he been the Dillon of former times.
He repudiated the English view that
Ireland Is st the moment In a condition of bankruptcy and made no secret
of his condemnation of the figure Juggling methods that Inspired the minis
ters    In    charge    of    the    financial ,
On that part ot the bill he waa more
In agreement with William O'Brien
and Tim Healy than he was with bis
leader, but In face of violent opposition on the part of Unionists, he kept
silent rather than strike a discordant
note among his own ooUaagues or em-
bai-aes the government ln any way.
Can Hear Distinctly Over Distance of
Over  250  Mites.
Ilerlln, Jan. 21.���A notable step forward has Just beea made by tbe tier
mans In the effort to transmit telephone messges without the use ot
wires, 'experiments have been made
daily for the seat few weeks between
the Nauem central wireless telegraphy station and Berlin, and according to the Taea-ltche, Rundcltau, they
are crowned with success.
Tbls Journal learns that not only
can a whole newspaper article be telephoned without difficulty between
the above mentioned stations, which
are some fifteen miles apart, but wireless telephone messages can be clearly understood at a distance of 250
miles, when the receiving appartus
harmonises with that at the station
from which the message fs despatched.
This surprising succeaa la attributed to tbe excellence of the machines
employed by the Telefunken system.
Moat recent statistics show that there
are at present about 3500 wireless
telegraphy stations hi the world, that
one-third of these are equipped with
tbe Telefunken and one-third with the
apparatus of various systems.
It Is said here that these statistics
are evidence of the triumphal progress of the German Telefunken system, and prove that the latter has
