Inflicted by defendant upon the plaintiff was the cattee of an Indignant and
caustic deliverance by Judge Howay
in the county oourt yesterday.
Prior to the civil ault now being
dealt wltb Nelson was acquitted of the
charge of assaulting and breaking
Lande's law by Mr. John McKee, J.P.
of Ladner.
On arising to address the court on
the fact, of th. ease, Mr. Potter, counsel for Nelson wm immediately Interrupted by hu honor, wbo .aid: "I
state to yo. frankly, you need not
address me on the facts; you will

He admitted that he was angry when
he spoke to Lande about the net and

except a row In the Holbrook hotel
eleven yeara ago.
Judge Howay intervened at thi.
point aa to tbe line ot cross-examination. How did the row In the Holbrook affect this matter he asked. If
it were a question of testing the credibility of the witness counsel wae
bound by the answers of the witness.
Mr. Edmonds then abandoned this
part of his cross-examination and proceeded to question the witness about
the trial at Ladner. The defendant
asserted that his evidence given tbere
was  correct.    He had    stated    that

It will be remembered that Councillor Mayne created somewhat of a

accused Messrs. Murray brothers of

Turkey Says Fortress   Will
Causa Allies Trouble Before It Surrender*'.
Constantinople, Feb. 4..���The Bulgarians, according to reports received
tonight, are retiring from the burning
village of Tchatalja, especially on the
left wing. This t. regarded as a strategical movement, possibly with the
idea of drawing the Turks into taking the offensive.
The belief is held among military
experts that no serious operations are
to be executed at Tchatalja for the
present The condition of the southern portion of the zone between the
tines of the belligerent. Ib such as to
render the movement of men impossible, lt is little better than a
moras.. Only on the higher ground
ln the northern region can the armies
come into contact and it seems improbable tbat either side will venture
an attack In force. It ls supposed
that the Bulgarians denounced the
armistice less on account of the fail-
ure ot the uegotiations than because
they expected Adrianople would be
obliged to surrender within a few days

recently been incorporated with a
capital of $1,000,000, of which $250,-
000 haB been subscribed by the men
who are fathering the scheme.
The registered office of the company 1. located ln tbls city, and New
Westminster and Vancouver will be
among the first cities where stores
will be opened.
The Intention Is to have stores ln
all tbe Important cities from Winn!
peg* to tbe Pacific coast. As at present outlined, stores will be opened as
follows: Vanoouver, 28 stores; Victors, 10 Etores; New Westminster, 5
Btores; Nanalmo, 3 stores; Winnipeg,
30 stores; Brandon, 5 stores; Regina.
12 stores; Calgary, 15 stores; Edmonton. 8 stores; Medicine Hat, 5 stores;
Revelstoke, 1 store; Moose Jaw, 4
stores; Nelson, 1 store.
Establish  Branches.
This makes a total of 128 stores,
leaving 22 branches to be established
in places where this Is deemed advisable, having regard to trade posslbili
ties and convenience for the purchase
of supplies ln that district. For instance, a store will be established In
the municipality of Langley, ln the
Fraser valley, one of the largest poul
'ry and egg producing centre, of British Columbia. This store, while it will
carry on thc regular grocery business,
will also be uaed as the receiving and
slipping point for all poultry and
eggs that can be raised in that locality, farmers bringing their goods to
the Langley store, whence these will
be shipped over the British Columbia
Electric railway to the 33 stores ln
Vancouver and New Westminster.
ThlB will not only provide the farmers au ever-i;eady market for their
produce, but will also ensure to the
consumer a steady supply of fresh
eggs aud poultry.

Columbia capitalists, men who
nize tbe great possibilities ot a chain
of cash grocery stores. The balance
of the stock ha. been placed on tb*
market, blocks of share, being allot-
cd to the different cities where store.
wll be opened.
These 150 store., with a capitalization of $1,000,000, will approximately
represent an Investment of $5000 par
store, the balance being appropriated
for the operation of warehouses, head
office, advertising campaigns, etc.

than to open stores which would

well worth trying.
What he desired to see most of all
was the growth of co-operation among
farmers and cultivators ot the soil,
not only in the way of obtaining credit

ho said, co-operate in purchasing the
goods they require for their business,
no lees than in the disposal of their

recognize that the Interests of one
are the interests of all.
Notwithstanding the extraordinary
success that has attended agricultural
co-operation In Denmark and other
European countries, British farmers
have not responded to any great extent, but It is hoped this scheme of
Mr. Runciman's will lead to greater

Mayor Gray is to be congratulated upon the very able]

We are glad to note that the present council is determined to lose no time in pushing forward the work upon
harbor development, and we trust that the long expected
news from Ottawa may arrive ere long and may prove to
be what the city of initiatives is deserving of.
With regard to the establishment of the municipal gas
plant, it is to be noted that unless the necessary contract
is speedily entered upon there can be no prospect of the
city delivering its gas to the citizens at reasonable prices
during this present year. Mayor Gray has explained how
the city may be absolutely safeguarded while awaiting the
report of the gas engineer who should be appointed forthwith. Gas is a matter which very materially affects every
householder, but, apart from this view of the subject, the
institution of a municipal gas plant here will considerably
enhance the advantages of New Westminster when viewed
from the standpoint of the interests who are contemplating the establishment of industries upon the coast. Therefore speedy action is necessary.
One of Sapperton's great needs is more effective fire
protection, while Queensboro, a district for which the past
seven years has worked wonders, demands special attention for her many local needs. Residents in the main portion of the city will rejoice with the people of the east and

is to lie shown them.

Almost till the close of the eigh

sometimes called "the Garden of

French name, the "Island of St.
But as early as 1780, the legislature
of the Island passed an act to change
its name to "New Ireland,"on the
ground that the similarity of Its designation to that of other places

people "even sailing for Newfoundland under the belief that they were

proposed change wus objected to by
the home government for the reason
that the appellation "New Ireland"
had already been appropriated but it
was suggested that "New Guernsey"
or "New Anglcsea" might serve.
Neither of these suggestions was
adopted, and for years the matter was
left In abeyance. At last in November, 1798, an address with a stipend-

has been placed in the steeple of the
village church at Bremgarten, ln the
canton of Argovle.
The mayor, the elders, and every
other man, woman and child ln tbe
place lent the dignity of their presence to tbe installation.
The time-piece was designed as a
memorial for a Bremgartener whom
nearly everyone had forgotten, but its
striking will be an hourly reminder of
the wifely devotion of Widow Honeg-
ger, who tolled for more than half a
century to make possible the testimonial.
The widow is 70 years of age. Her
husband died when title was 24 and a
ylllage beauty, leaving her penniless.
In all the years since she hus worked
as a household servant or ln the
fields, hoarding her earnings. Her
labor-bent figure, excessive self-denial, and "miserly" habits made her an
object of ridicule among the thoughtless, but locked In her breast was the
secret ambition only revealed to her
astonished neighbors when the money
for its fulfilment was in hand.

now about the most popular citizen
of Bremgarten, witnessed the clock

she dried her eyes and returned to

A  song of long ago���
Sing It lightly -sing It low���
S'ng lt softly���like the lisping of the
lips we used to know.
When our baby laughter spilled
From the glad hearts ever filled
With music glad as robins ever trilled.
Let thc fragrant summer breeze,
And the leaves of locust trees
And the apple buds and blossoms and
the wings of honey bees.
All palpitate wltb glee,
Till Ihe happy harmony
Brings back each childish Joy to you
and me.
Let the oyes of fancy turn
Where the tumbled pippins bum
Like embers In the orchard's lap of
tangled grass and fern���
There let the old path wind
in and out and on behind
The cider press that chuckles as wo

Of the dtivi-  Hint grieves alone,
And th. wild ��'hlr of the loeuHt. and

And the low rf cows Ihat call
Through the pasture bars when all
The landscape fades away at evenfall.
Then far away and clear
Through the d.sky atmosphere.
Let the walling of the ktldce be the
only sound we hear;
Oh sad and sweet and low
As the memory may know
Is the glad pat he tic song of long .go!

���nd that hi. Mr-rice, would co.t her
for the return journey only $2.00.
Accordngly, for the last week, every

The crowd was extremely disappointed to learn from the porter that
there wm no fire and that the lady

For the llrst three rounds Kllbane
scarcely closed his gloves, but as tbe
fight went on he hooked many a hard
blow to the head. The best that could
be said of Drlscoll was that he was

Next game, Friday, Feb. 7, Vancouver at New Westminster.
Beaten to a frazzle at every .(age.
of the game, the Vancouver hocke..
team were soundly trounced on their
own ice last evening by the Victoria
aggregation and unless the unexpected
happens It begins to appear like the
Senators taking down the Paterson
cup und also making the trek east In j 'J�� '
quest of the famous Stanley cup. j'
Thc stars under Frank Patrick were
never ln the running last evening snd
from tlie first drop of the puck It was
only a question of how many goals
the Victorias would really Bcore.
The goal tallies, seven to Victoria j
and four to Vancouver, represents the!
play although the   large    Vancouver
crowd present never knew Just when
tbe  visiting  aggregation  were  going

Mills Declines to Play.
The opening game of the Westmln-
s'er Amnteur Hockey Association will
be staged at the Arena this evening
tt.llowih-* the close of the regular
s'.. "ing session. Tbe Moose and Burnaby will be thu contenders with j
i n at possibility of the herd taking
the long end of the score.
An effort was made yesterday after-
in mi to change the schedule so that
Fraser Mills would clash with th��
the curtain raiser of thf
short season, but the latter would not
1 si< ii to the proposal, although It
was explained to them that had the
season started on time the Moon
team would have met the Circle F aggregation In the opening game.
Just why they did not concede thi.
request of the league officials is stilt
a mystery   a. a one-sided    game   to
start with will only have a tendency

Expect Huge Crowd at Opening Game
at Local Arena on Friday
Indications point to a bumper house
at the Arena on Friday evening when
the Hoyals meet the Vancouver ten

reason. The demand tor poateboanln
r.as been coming in from all parts of
tbe surorundlng district ..while the
Vancouver contingent will charter several special cars to bring them over
to cheer for the Millionaires.
Coqultlam has been showing an interest ln the hockey games and these
together with a big bunch trom the
Fraaer Mills may possibly be enough
to engage a special train on tbe
I'.l/.H. to take them to and from their
homes by the steam route.

Here are the remainder of the very

Sometimes to this ia added an

pair of sandals, made of giraffe hide

Tbe swimmers on the Nile twist up

is a headdress about the Blze of a

Many Nile Arabs living on islands
have no boats and they and their women and children and cattle can only
reach the mainland by swimming.
Many refugees of the Gimeyab
vtribe came over to Kitchener's army
in this way in 1898.
The swimmers usually go two or
three together, each armed with a
spear, in case a crocodile should attack them when landing, but tbe centre of the current Is free of these
pests and it is only south of Khartoum that they are very numerous.
In 1897, after the Battle of Abu
Hamed, Ihe bodies of dead Dervishes
were washed down the fourth cataract from Abu Hamed to Merow, a distance of over 120 miles in four days,
and gave the news of the Dervish defeat to the Riverine Arabs.

Cape Town, Feb. 4.���When General
Botha was appointed prime minister
of the Transvaal ln 1907 he had no
parliamentary experience, and had
never held any civil  political office.
He is said to have expressed to bis
friends considerable nervousness as to
how he would figure ln parliamentary
debate when opposed to men who
nere accustomed to public speaking
both on tbe platform and in parliament.
Yet from tbe first General Botha
was a great success In the Transvaal
parliament and although not �� natur
al orator, bis readiness in debate and
his habit of genial repartee made him
a formidable opponent. It soon De-
came a boast among the ministerial-

there are connected many a tale that
goes to make up the story of r,ur civic
and our provincial life. The Old Jail
is one of these, and around it are
gathered many chapters of history-
chapters in which there are more shadows than sunshine, more tears than
smiles, more tragedy than comedy.
Thanks to the industry of the late
Rev. J. Douglas Borthwick, for twenty years chaplain to the Montreal
Prison, and to his appreciation of the
details that make up the background
of history, many of these chapters
have been collected In condensed form.
In the judicial entries of those long-
ago years there are some curious entries. For instance, among them is
the record of a case entered as "B:.n-

Berlin, Feb. 4.���The inhabitants of
Berlin have been rather curious to
know the reasons of ono of the latest
changes In the physiognomy of the
city���the appearance of blue-painted
prison vans in place of the dark green
one to which they have been accustomed for several decades past.
"Green Mlna" was a form of speech

and "The Salad Basket," and lt was
rather difficult for the precise minds
of the Berllners to use when the vehicle to which they were referring
was really blue.
But the difficulty was soon overcome, and, changing the sex as well

appearance was re-baptised, "Blue

The real difficulty waa to discover
the reason for the extra bill at the
painter's, and the riddle has now been
solved. The order came from the active and essentially up-to-date chief
of the police, Herr von Jagow, and
had the best of scientific reasons, based on tbe varied Influences of color.

two doctors were able to show that

It seems that after quitting his first
chum, Aubert came back to Paris and
associated with a girl, through whom
he was condemned for an offense of
which he waa not guilty to three
months Imprisonment aud five yeara
banishment from the capital.
After serving this time he was sent
to a country property belonging to
hla father, but soon ran away, as If
he were a schoolboy instead of being
twenty-three years old. Just to see
what It felt like to rob a man he attacked a respectable citizen on his
way home, and for this he received
two years' imprisonment.
But even this did not cure him of
his vicious tastes, and when he came
out be happened to see the police arresting an obstreperous vlrage on thc
Quay of Venves. His chivalrous Instinct could not brook this Ill-treatment of a "gueuse," and he began

quickly and as automatically as the
���mile of a ventriloquist's doll. The
speed and stress of modern life have
produced the Spinx face; the reason
for it is to be found ln the action of
the mind on facial expression. Obsessed by single ideas, harassed by
the thousand worries of a worrying
age, modern people reflect their burden of care in the hard expressionless face."
A photographer, discussing the
Sphinx face, said: "I know this face
well. It ls noticeable In women as
well as men. Tbe women, it seems to
me, contract the Sphinx expression by
constant association with Sphinx-like
men. Children also are taking on this
look, for it well known that their
faces take on something of the expression of tbeir parents' faces.
"It is part of our art to make these
people look pleasant, but I assure you
It is not an easy thing to do. I say to
them, 'Smile just a little,' and only
after much persuasion do they relax
the muscles of their faces. It ls becoming quite rare to get a subject
with a free, frank smile."

Newspapers vs. Circulars
Which Is Best ?
Have you, MfTBusiness Man, thoroughly studied out
the relative values of the two intvertising mediums-
newspapers and circulars?
If you have tried both you know that one lot of circulars will cost you far more for printing and distributing
than an advertisement of equal size published in a daily
The extra cost of circulars, however, Would not matter if proportionate results were secured from their use.
But that's the question.
How many copies of The News distributed to the
houses in New Westminster and district are not taken in
and read by everyone in the household? Not one-quarter
of one per cent
How many circulars are taken into the homes and
read by the members of the family who are buyers? Not
39 per cent
If you doubt this statement go around some morning
after a bunch of circulars have been distributed and see-
how many are left lying in the yard, kicked into the gqt-
ter or btown about the street
People wekome the daily paper. The circular is
locked upon as a nuiiaii-ce by many, particularly those
who have to dean up ttie Utter they make on the lawns.
Your advertising should first of all create a good impression in order to draw people to your store. Which
do you think the householder prefers reading, a circular
or your advertfcement in thenewspaper?     ���'- '
Ard the newspaper follows up its work day after day.
'Jt'he circular goes to the wast*.- basket ii.:? is forgotten in
a few hours.

Messrs. George Kennedy, D. S. Cur
ti. and C. A. Welsh were appointee1
trustees of the special fund raised to
extend the scope of the Progressive
Association at a meeting of the sub
serlfcers of the fund in the city hall
yesterday afternoon.
The hoard of trustees for the fund
wIB -consist of live members, three o(
which will be thoae gentlemen appointed yesterday. Two members of
tho executive of the Progressive Association and one councillor, should
the city decide to augment tho
amount publicly subscribed by a donation, will comprise tbe -balance of the
board. President F. P. -Hnlitb and the
honorary secretary will -represent the
executive rot the assocbxtlon on the
trustees board.
The meeting yesterday was not
very well attended, a fact that was
taken to t-adticate by President F. P.
Smith, who was in the chair, the confidence of the subscribers hi the officers of the association as far as the
judicious and oconomtc expenditure of
the fund was concerned.
The position ot the Progressive Association financially was indicated in
a report presented by the secretary.
Thiis showed that outside of thr
special fund the tneasury contained
$1716.35. The total amounted subscribed towards the special fund In
cash and promises was $5665. Of this
$2291.25 had been paid and $2023.75
secured by notes, leaving a balance
of $1350 to be collected.
The report of the secretary also
showed that the total expenditure by
the association during Its life of eight
���nonths had been $26S0.SS. or an average cf just over $300 a month.
At the conclusion of the meeting
the subscribers to the fund were ac
ccrded a hear*-; vote of thanku.
In\The Courts
In the county court before Judge
Howay yesterday Messrs. Sloane aud
Harrison, contractors, New Westminster, sued Kerr & Bray, theatre proprietors, for $348,50 for work done in
remodelling the Edison theatre, Columbia street.
From the evidence adduced it a,p-
peared tbat the plaintiffs contracted
originally, to remodel the theatre for]
51780, which was subsequently Increased to $2000 on account of additional work resolved upon.
The amount In dispute was for
painting and metal work. The plaintiffs contended that thir contract did
not Include these two items, whilst
the defendant held they were both embraced in the contract for $2000.
At the close of the case his honor
indicated that he would give judgment
for tho plaintiff for $248.50, tbe
charges for painting and reserve his
decision as to $76, the claim for
pressed metal work.

MeLeod  vs.   Murchlson.
The digging of a well at Clover dale
gave rise to an action instituted by
J. B. MeLeod, contractor, Cloverdale,
against Mrs. Ethel M. Murchlson,
Cloverdale, for $155.87.
Mrs. Murchlson disputed the claim
on the ground tbat the plaintiff had
guaranteed to find water within two
days and to put in her kitchen, but
had entirely failed to do so. It was
admitted that an infinitesimal quantity of water had been reached in the
well but none that could be raised.
The plaintiff had been about five
days pottering about the work, according to the defendant, but had not
actually operated 20 hours altogether
