ad tbe liveliest interest In the proceedings. Formerly the council met
In the day time and only tbe. leisured
few were able to attend. At ' last
meeting the council resolved to meet
on the evening ot every second Tuesday.
The principal topic of general Interest was tho police committee's proceedings. For some time there has
been considerable friction ln tha
police department of Coqultlam which
culminated last night la the municipal
council calling for the resignation ol

Constable Edwards had been form
erly chief, but owing to the police
committee of 1912 having found hin.

A. E. Rounds, was placed over him,
with Infelicitous results, and a few

ot dairy sanitation and milk aupply In
all Ita phases, and to the extent of 77
typewritten pages, the recommendations alone occupying a dozen pages.

Regarding the milk supply of New
Westminster the report saya: "This
important and rapidly growing city ls
advantageously situated In regard to
the milk supply, forming aa It does
tbe well established centre of the famous Fraaer river valley, with ample
steam ttnd electric railways and river
communication. ,
"Its milk supply ia furnished almost
entirely by farms on the Surrey aide
of the river, but some la shipped In
from Langley and Chllllwack districts.
There are eight retail dairies and
dealers supplying the city, the population of which Is 17,000. Generally
speaking the quality of the milk supplied is good.
'There Is one large retail establishment In New Westminster of modern
institution, which is well equipped
with machinery and appliances for
cooling and bottling the milk.
'There are also several farmers on
the Surrey side of the river, some ot
whom deliver milk in bottles direct
to the consumers and Some from the
can; for the rest of the milk distribution is carried on by small dealers who
peddle tbe milk direct from door to

T��n Arrested in New York
Connection  tVWrr*^
London, Jan. 28.���As a protest
against the withdrawal of'the franchise bill by the,government, the suffragettes resumed their militant tactics tonight. While a deputation wblch
the chancellor of the exchequer, David
Lloyd Oeorge, had refused to see until
tomorrow morning, was trying to force
Its way into parliament against an
overwhelming force of police, aqd the
members were being placed under arrest for resisting the officers, other
banda of women went through Whitehall breaking windows of the government offices sand through Cocks pur
street, where the great plate glass windows of tbe establishments of shipping companies ruthlessly were
The women also visited Oxford, Regent and other streets ln the shopping
districts, where similar damage was
done. Later, mail boxes were attacked, quantities ot liquid being poured
Into them.
In the outlying suburbs, too, the suffragettes by damaging property, took
steps to bring tbe cause before the
Twenty-one women were arrested In
the vicinity of the parliament buildings, but were allowed out on bail after the bouse rose. Most of the police
stations had one or more prisoners
charged with destroying property.
Police and Rain In Game.
The demonstration in Whitehall
was not so large as some ot those
previously held, the force of police
and a drenching rain mill tat ing against
any great turnout The wildest excitement prevailed, however, aud besides
protecting property and arresting' women eugaged Tn window smashing or
who refused to move on when ordered,
the police had the greatest difficulty
in protecting the women from aa unruly crowd of youths who hustled
every woman wearing tbe suffragette
In several cases the women were
roughly handled. An attempt to duck
four of them Into the fountain in Trafalgar Square, waa frustrated by a
police posse which had to. ride through
the crowd.
The entire deputation of 21 women
who attempted to make their way
into the house of commons to interview Chancellor Lloyd Oeorge were
arrested. The prisoners Included Mra.
Drummond and Sylvia Pankhurst wbo
marched ln front Before starting on
their mission the delegates listened to
addresses by Mrs. Emetine Pankhurst
and other leaders. Mra. Pankhurst
said the withdrawal of Ute Franchise
bill, including the Speaker's ruling,
was a plot decided upon long ago, and
Premier Asqulth waa aware of it
Answer la Militancy.
"The answer to thla treachery," she
declared, "Is militancy."*
Sylvia Pankhurst -declared their Intention was* to hold the Speaker in
the chair and leave Mr. Asqulth on
the bench, and with this the deputation started. The police gave them safe
escort as far as the entrance of parliament, where an Inspector Informed
them that the chancellor of the exchequer would.be unable to see them
until morning.
Mrs. Drummon retorted, "This Is all
torn foolery. If you don't let us lu
there will be trouble."
At that the members of the deputation threw themselves at tbe police,
who stood six deep across the entrance
and a scramble followed in which Mra.
Drummond and another woman were
either thrown or fell to tbe ground.
The police gave the women several
chancea to withdraw quietly bnt as
they refused, all were arretted. The
crowd showed little sympathy for the
suffragettes. The authorities. It is
understood, contemplate aresting the
leaders for inoiting their followers to
break the laws.
Chrlstobel Pankhurst, wbo ia often
referred to aa the brains of the organization, is believed to be in London directing the demonstrations. She
is known to have left Paris, where she
has been living since a warrant for
her arrest was issued at the time her
mother, Mrs. Emellne Pankhurst and.
Mrs. Pethlck Lawrence were convicted
and all trace of her is lost.
The damage to property would have
been greater had not shopkeepers

The report of the Milk Commission presented to the
provincial legislature on Monday afternoon is lucid in its
description of present conditions and in its suggestions
for remedying them. It is also remarkable for the nature
of at least two of its findings.
First, regarding infantile mortality, we are told that
this, in the larger cities of the province and particularly
���during the summer months, is in considerable measure
���due to intestinal trouble, one of the chief causes of which
is bad milk. The only bright spot in reflecting upon this
is that in Westminster where the commission finds that
the milk supply is, generally speaking, good, the deaths
attributable to diarrhoea are in much smaller proportion
than in any other city in the province.
One out of sixty-three is our figure, as contrasted
���with Vancouver's one in thirty-five, Victoria's one in
thirty-four, Kamloops' one in thirty and Nanaimo's one
in twenty-one.
It is certainly not creditable to us as a people to learn
that some 5,000 gallons of milk were imported last month
from the United States and that the amount is increasing.
Neither is it comfortable to think that this milk cannot
be cut off at present without jeopardizing the supply in
of Becker, and H^tna he who later
on betrayed bid master, and so won
immunity for himself.

Mr. Justice Sutherland, addressing
the graduating class of the Windsor
Collegiate Institute, said:
"The young men of today, with moderate salaries, are spending five

and tbe young women are encouraging them to do ao.**
Judge Sutherland Is still a young
man. Why does he make this unjust
attack upon the reBt of us? We Bay
unjust because we see no reason why
young men should be singled out for
rebuke on the score of extravagance.

Paine was a pioneer In many fields,
although he is chiefly remembered because of his attacks on Christianity.
He built the first iron bridge in England, which still spans the Wear, at
Sunderland. He first suggested the
federal union of states. He was the
first to agitate the abolition of Blavery,
and organized the first society fo? the
prevention'of cruelty to animals. The
old-age pension scheme, now in effect
ln England, was first suggested by
Paine.   .
His appeal for international peace
and arbitration was the first of its
kind ever published. International
copyrights were first proposed by
Paine. The education of the poor at
the public expense, the foundation of
the public school system, was originally proposed by Paine. The Louisiana Purchase, out of which Beveral

Adolph, Milton B. Ochs began his new
paper career as a newsboy in Knox-

Milton became vice-president and man

He quit newspaper work for railroading ln 1890, and for two years

The commercial world is alive to tbe pMBibilities of
scientific manufacturing:. Great strides arc being made
in the application of a set of principles so sincere and simple that their value is not open to doubt. Scientific management is opening the, way for greater efficiency and
greater economy in production.
The production of an article, however,, is but one of
(he processes through which it must go, and tke giant task
is today and always has been to find the best method of
distributing what is produced.
Distribution frequently costs more than production.
Dollars will go further in their purchasing power and
standards of living will be generally enhanced in just the
proportion that distribution is simplified and economized.
Students of economic conditions are convinced that
the American system of selling has been extremely wasteful and manufacturers in many lines are now earnestly
considering not only what they may do to organize their
production on the most scientific basis, bnt also how they
may lessen the cost of selling and thereby make a greater
profit, or give the consumer the advantage of a better article for the same money or the same article for less
Intelligent advertising is a powerful aid in the solution of this vexatious problem.
It requires effort to sell goods and salesmen must be
paid for making this effort. A merchant buys goods to
sell them. He is interested in profit and retailing has
long since reached the point where quick sales with small
profits are more highly regarded than slow sales with
large profits.
The merchant realizes that well-advertised goods are
partially sold and that his trade, although the profit per
sale may be slightly less, is certain to be more brisk on
goods of this character.
The salesman who can offer to his trade a line of merchandise which is widely known and for which there exists a favorable prejudice can sell his wares with less effort than if he were handling an unknown article.
The manufacturer who is paying salesmen for making a sales effort obviously has to pay less price for less
effort. And this condition does not work against the
naltwiB. B* can cower -non tarnrttMry, eroA. .�� better
hearing and in the Vong run mmke more-���������������.    ^ *
The scientific ideal endorses a straight line as the
shortest distance between two points.
If a railroad is to be constructed from c-c city to another the engineering ideal is an air line; Lut. of course,
grades must be leveled, streams crossed, other towns
taken into consideration, and a practical bmlding of the
road means a departure from the ideal.
In merchandising we have a parallel eaae���the man
who makes something and the man who wants something.
The selling ideal is a straight route from ope of these men
to the other. But there are jobbers, retailers, competitors and market conditions to be coijsidered and in practical selling all these elements must be given due attention.
Advertising, however, provides a short route by which
the man who makes something may tea about it to the
man who wants such an article, and if enough persons are
told and taught, they will make their desires felt through
the retailer and the jobber. The manofaetorer then gets
bis reward because he has his mark on his goods and he
alone can supply them.
His salesmen find it less difficult to ad the foods and

Sulzer today contributed $100 to a
fund to pay the $23,476 unaccounted
for by General Daniel E. Sickles, as
chairman of the New York mono

sympathy goes out to him In this hour
of trial."
Governor Sulzer received a telegram
from United States Senator William
Alden Smith, of Michigan, in which
he said:
"Are the prosperous and generous

Milk Commission
Makes Its Report
(Continued from rage one)
situated in the city. This concern
receives for manufacturing purposes
300,000 gallons of milk per annum and
in tho last annual period paid the
farmers nearly f60,000 for milk.
Inferior milk Eupply is held to be responsible for a large proportion of infantile mortality during recent years.
The commissioners advise the classification of milk In three standards-
Approved milk, I.e., etrictly fresh raw
milk produced under unchangeable
conditions and marketed at a stipulated temperature; pasteurized milk,
and  certified milk.
Bacteriolrglcnl examinations It Ic
urged should be Imperative.
The comnr> Ion recommends that
the standard regulations as to dairy
herds of the Contagious Diseases of
Animals act bo retained, but that only
Grade A. should henceforth be permitted; that tho -raapeotlon rtaff be Increased; that tuberculin tests be compulsory; that meat Inspection be aleo
provided for and made obligatory;
that all imported cattle should be subject to examination, Inspection and
certification; Ihat compensation for
slaughtered cattle be Increased, the
maximum value of a grade cow being
ralBed to $100 and that of a pure bred
cow to $160; that special milk oar facilities lie obligatory upon transportation companies; that all milk for cltlei
shall lie compulsortly delivered at a
central depot or depots and Inspected
and certified before distribution to the
public; that inspection activities rhill
remain exclusively with tho department of agriculture; that Inspectors be
���squired to furnish reportB to Municipal health i fflcers of conditions nn
Inspected dairy farms, etc; that the
Dominion Pure Pood act be made applicable to the provincial milk supply;
that four adltlonal Dominion analysts
be appointed for B.C., one for thc
mainland, one for Vancouver Island,
ind two for the provincial Interior;
that municipalities be empowered to
regulate their milk supply by bylaws,
but that milk standardization remain a
provincial matter, and that a campaign of education by means ot lectures and bulletins be Inaugurated to
produce public realisation of the dangers ot Impure milk supply.

A Beautiful Parable.
Sport, speaking broadly, occupies
the most enthusiastic hours of both
men and women in the best years of
their lives, and, therefore. It Is the
most receptive field for good impressions. So it follows that sport presents the best scope for the realisation of Ideals.
And I honestly believe that the standard of life is higher In sport than
would not get any preference because
he came from Eton over one who
came from a grammar school.
The very fact that all such things
are platitudes shows that sport ls on
a higher plane than other branches
of life.

with the Island Is through the agency

Weird Rites and Ceremonlc. That Prevail1 In Tu-k��y.
The religion oi the Ottoman empirc
is typical of its people���barbarou-i snd
fantastic. The Dervishes, the regular
religious order in Turkey, recogniz-j
no authority but that of Allah, and.
in consequenee, have been persecuted
not-s little by the jealous Sultans. AJ-
tlnju-rh the laymen who profess this
faith have but to repeat one or tw-"
short prayers and wear the sacred cap
lor' a lew minutes every day. those
who take the vows of poverty, abstinence from wine, and celibacy, from
time to time perform strange rites in
their worship of AI Ish.
The Whirhng_ Dervishes, niter s few
preliminaries, begin to chant the Koran to weird music played on flutes
and tarboukas, which seems to intoxicate them. One by one the; close their
eyes, stretch their arms horizontslly.
and begin to twist, slowly at first, but
gain speed until they seem, like a
sleeping top, to be motionless. All
tha time they never touch, although
there msy be a score or more whirling at the same time in the centre of
the floor, never leave the spot where
they stand, and never get out of time,
always moving to the music. Thi*
they continue until they tall exhausted, and are covered with a cloak until they have recovered.
The ceremonies performed by the
Howling Dervishes, another sect, are
quite as strange, and a great deal
mOre barbarous even than those just
mentioned, but in neither case are
the rites performed secretly; for, unlike other Mohammedans, the Dervishes do not object to the "Christian
dog" attending their places of worship, so long as he removes his shoes
before he enters the "tekieh," or
Round the walls of the hall used hy
the Howling Dervishes hang all sort*
of cruel-looking implements ��� sharp
darts, nippers, chains, pincers, and
other weapons. These the devotee-1
use to mortify their flesh when they
have worked themselves up to a state
of religious ecstasy and delirium.
This they do by noddin-! their head*
backwards and forwards, keeping
time to a strange, monotonous chant.
Faster and faster they move their
heads, higher and higher rises the
music, one by one thc Dervishes leave
their place and begin to le-ip high in
the air, nodding all the time. Kettledrums are beaten, the chanting becomes louder. The Dervishes form a
chain, placing their hands on eacn
other's flioulders, then step :>ne pace
backward and one forward with a terrific simultaneous lurch, emitting a
long-drawn howl, like the cry of some
wounded animal.
The excitement is intense, and the
Dervishes, foaming at tha mouth, begin to wound themselves with various implements from the walls. They
handle red-hot irons, fill their mouths
with burning charcoal, drive a spit
right through one cheek snd out the
other -side, and leave it there while
they continue to nod and howl. Tliey
perform a sort of wild dance with a
pointed dart in each hand, throwing
themselves upon them, until, worn

he was'nut thc only one bearing the

The late Brigadier-General Charles
Wlll.am Drury, C. B., A. D. C, whose
death occurred recently in Montreal,
was one of the most distinguished officers who ever served ln the Canadian mllltla, and his name will always
be associated with the history of the
At the battle ot Fish Creek, during
tbe Northwest Rebellion of 1885, he
commanded and laid Uie first gun
ever fired ln action by the mllltla of
the Dominion of Canada. Some ten
years later he commanded at Deser-
ronto the first field training camp for
the Canadian Field Artillery, and personally worked out the system of
training and devised the moving and
disappearing targets which made the
experiment a success.
It waa largely due to the remarkable .aUcceas accomplished at Deser-
onto that the active mllltla owea the
acquisition and equipment of tbe
great central training station at Peta-
Sir George French, General Strange
Colonel Rutherford and Major Short
all did much towards making tbe
field artillery the moat efficient
branch of the active militia; but any
artilleryman ln Canada will tell oyu
that it was General Drury to whom
most of the credit was due.
When during the South African war
Drury, when he joined the Northwest
field force, assured the general that
be would guarntee to take the guns
wherever the mounted scouts could
go, and he kept bis word.   As a mat-" i
ter of fact, Drury's guns at the battls i
of Fish Creek were frequently In ad- <
vance of either the Infantry  or th* ���
dismounted scouts, and for a consider-
able  time  the    nine-pounders    were
fought ln the fighting tine along the
crest of the ravine, being run back
by hand by the gunners to be loaded .
after each discbarge.
A driver of one gun snot from hia
horse bad his hand pitted with pow- ���
der grain*, showing bow close the
guns were fought to the half-breeds
and Indians. One man of every four
in A Battery was either killed er
wounded that day, a larger percentage of loss than sustained during aay
action In the South African war, but
the work done by the gunners waa In-
Vluable ln demoralising tbe rebels aad
tn heartening the volunteers. *
Both guns tired thetr full llmbem
of ammunition several times over aad '
one result of the gun practice waa

Sir Arthur Conan  Doyle, speakin-i

Geo.   Meredith,   lu   the   years   1-SM a
Sir   Arthur   visited   the   novelist   ot
his residence at Box Hill, in Surrey.
"When  I went there I inadvertently
offended him in one way.    He met
ne at the door.   He told me lie had
jut come from the top o a high hill

at the shivering lump, expressed himself  in  a  characteristic  phrase���just
tieli a one as he would put in the
nouth of one of his characters.    He
-aid, 'The jelly seems as treacherous
as   a  Trojan   horse.'    Meredith   was

White vs. Dawson -tt Lew.
In   the   civil   court yesterday his
honor Judge  Howay heard  two civil 1
cases.   Tlie principal and most inter- {
eating waa an action by M. D. White, I
real estate ugenl. New Westminster,!
against William  Dawson  and   Frank!
Lew,  land  speculator**,  also  of  New-
Westminster, for {275 and   $250   re-1
spectlvely, commissions alleged to be
due him oa transactions between Dawson & Lew. and Lew aud a Mr. Cour-
tenay. ,
The actions were separately raised,
but by consent of counsel tbey were
tried conjointly
The defence was an admission that
Mr. White put through one trade between Dawson and Mr. ("ourtenay aad
iiitiudiic'd a deal between Lew aad
Dawson which ws* never cousum
mated. Otherwise there was a denial
that White had anything to do with
the transactions which occurred between Lew and Dawson.
Tke court decided not to hear arguments yesterday on account of two
other trials being Bet down for that
day. The date of hearing the argu-
s-n-'iit would be Intimated to counsel
through tbe registrar.
Mr. White ln his evidence testified
most unequivocally that all the trans
actions were the outcome of his Introductions -that Dawson was continually
ln hla office, sometimes for a whole
day, and that Low was hardly less so.
Defendants were equally strenuous
In their denials.
During tbe bearing cf the evidence
Judge Howay scored defending counsel heavily for leading questions while
conducting examination In chief, send
ing for Dickson on evidence and reading the definition of .*: leading question. "For your future benefit," quoted
his honor emphatically.
On another occasion while cross-
examining a witness tbe defending
counsel asserted that no charge could
be made by Mr. White for drawing up
an agreement wblch he exhibited.
Judge Howay said he knew of no law
In British Columbia against the valid
ily cf such a charge.
Counsel for plaintiff���A charge can
not be made in other countries.
Hie honor said- lie did not know
what the law ln Burgundy or Bohemia
might be, but he knew of no law in
British Columbia against lt; cross-
examination based upon a statement
which was incorrect was improper.
Mr. Potter, representing Adam S.
Johnston, appeared for the plaintiff
Mr. H. L. Edmonds, of White.iide &
Edmonds, appeared for the defendants.
