Washington, Feb. 4.���The Burnett

test for applicants to admission to
the United States, was passed by tht
hcuso this afternoon by a vote of 241
to 126. All proponed amendments relating to the exclusion of Asiatic Immigrants previously had been eliminated.
As the bill passed, it provides that
every immigrant admitted to the
United States must be able to read
"the Kuglish language, or some language or dialect, including Hebrew or
Yiddish." it prescribes that each applicant for admission muBt read a
slip on which are printed between 30

In its present form this measure
passed the house and the senate in

vetoed during President Cleveland's
administration. Supporters of the bill
are confident that it will again pass
the senate, although President Wilson

Ottawa, Feb. 4.���Only three weeks
time remains in which government of
the United States can sign the international fisheries treaty which has
been pending since 1909, and there is
considerable uneasiness here over the
failure of Washington to ratify the
agreement.
Several months ago the Canadian
government, growing weary of Its attempts to get the American authorities to sign the treaty, gave the Wilson administration until March 1 to
eive its approval. Dr. Hugh Smith.
fisheries commissioner of the United
States, came to Ottawa early in December and made a final revision of
the treaty with Professor Prince, Canada's fish commissioner. The understanding then was that there were no
obstacles in the way and intimation
was given that the treaty would be
signed. Since then not a word has
been heard from the American capital and it looks as if the treaty will
be allowed to lapse. If the treaty is
not signed by the first of next month,
it is doubtful whether further time
will be given by the Canadian government.
Serious Set-back.
The failure of the American authorities to sign the treaty would
prove a serious set-back to the development  of International   fisheries.

Appeal Thrown Out After
Argument Is Heard Before Court.
Victoria, Feb. 4.���Another effort byway of appeal in the "Australian Mac"
Macnamara case from New Westminster fell by the wayside before the
court of appeals yesterday. Adam S.
Johnston, counsel for Macnamara, appealed from Macnamara's conviction
on a charge of stealing the Trapp
automobile on the night of the famos
bank robbery. The appeal was based
on two grounds, both of which failed.
It was held that under the- extradition treaty a man could not be tried
on any other charge than that on
which he was extradited. Macnamara
was brought over on a charge ef "burglarizing a garage" but at the trial the
jury found him guilty of the reduced
charge of stealing. The breaking and
entering the Jury found was not proven. Mr. Johnston argued that If the
burglary charge failed the whole case
failed and Macnamara was entitled to
his liberty. The court held that aa
Mr. Johnston had failed to bring extradition papers showing on what
charge he was really surrendered by
the Dnited States government, there
was no intimation before the court of
what charge he was extradited under
and consequently the appeal must
drop.
The other point raised was that
Macnamara was to have been tried
at the spring assizes and a Jury was
empanelled under the old juries act
which expired on July 1. when a new
act came Into force. Macnamara was
tried on July II by a jury struck
under the old act In May and Mr.
Johnston maintained that ithe Jury
went out with the act and that a new
ono should have been struck after
July 1, according to the new plan of
empanelling.

ONE OF THE STRAWS.
The demand of the western Canadian stock breeders'
for better representation in the Dominion Shorthorn
Breeders' association is one of the straws which shows
how the wind is blowing in Canada, a sure indication of
the coming shift in this and other lines of the balance of
power which has lain so long in the east.
In stock breeding, as well as in many other Dominion
wide activities, the west has felt for some time that it has
not had justice from the more thickly populated east. This
sentiment has been apparent for years, but it is only recently that the westerner has come to realize his increasing strength and in that strength has stood toe-to-toe with
his eastern brother and has demanded his rights.
The day of the west has dawned; its big growing time
is still ahead of it and the day is not far distant when in
this side of the Dominion will be the authority. The location of the financial centres in the east has done much in
the past to spike down the reins of commercial government in the section tributary to the Atlantic seaboard.
With the head offices of all the great Canadian banks
located east of Winnipeg, the west has an uphill fight
ahead of it for the recognition which is its due, but things
will not always remain as they are today. The opening
of the Panama canal will throw into the scales in favor
of the Pacific slope an enormous weight and eastern control of banking and business will have to conform to western conditions or lose out in the race for trade. The houses
coming into the commercial life of the west after the opening of the Panama canal, houses that do world-wide business, are not going to submit to the delays consequent on
the necessity of referring credit lines and similar queries
to Montreal, Toronto and other eastern centres. Big
business demands speed in transaction. Big business is
coming to the Pacific coast and the quick handling of it,
to be obtained only by placing executive power in the west,
is as sure to follow as the water that runs down hill.
Jamaica wails that 1913 was her unlucky year. Well
Jamaica has the consolation of knowing that she didn't
have the monopoly of all the hard luck, nor nearly all of it.
Newspapers tell us that a British-American peace
treaty will be signed shortly. It's news to hear that there
was any necessity for such a thing.
the Halcyon caught the fancy of BUI
Whale-y anel when tli" millionaire
whim which v.as responsible for her i
building had turned to other diversion
she waa purchased hy the master
smuggler.
Thereafter the Halcyon was used
to such advantage with oilier craft
Owned and operated by the master
hand, that Whaley aceamulated a for
tune of considerably more than $1,-
000,000. A deal during lisOl is particularly well remembered. Whaley
slipped the Halcyon through to the
Hawaiian islands and landed a ton of
opium on Maui island. He received
$90 for every pound of it.
The story is toid of how Whaley
one? gave the slip to the customs
authorities. He was caught red-handed and wilh the Halcyon in tow the
officers triumphantly started for their
headquarters at Port Townsend. But
Whaley had to be under lock and key
j before he was secure ad the customs
j officers learned  to their discomfiture.
It was a dark night and the
��� revenue cutter and her tow could only
jbe distinguished by thsir lights. This
suggested an idea to the wily smuggler, lie rigged up lights on a hogshead, attached this to the towing
hauser, extinguished the Halcyon's
lights and slipped away in the darkness. The revenue cutter continued
en to Port Townsend, towing the
hogshead.
1-ater, Whaley got into serious
trouble and after his schooner had
been seized and six of his men sent
to San Quentin penitentiary, he left
the country and settled down in
Yokohama, lie lost about $200,000 in
confiscated property in so doing.
For a time he engaged in illegitimate deals on the Asiatic coast with
varying success until he became involved in the death of a Japanese*
sailor. The Japanese government became Interested in htm in 1833 and
it cost liini a small fortune to extricate himself from the toiU of the
Nipponese law.
Lost Money in Japan.
Then the ex-smuggler engaged in
the saloon and boarding house business in Yokohama and became known
ameng the sailors of the seven seas.
Despite his popularity he lost money
in Japan. ^
When war broke cut with the
Spanish in 1S9S Whaley went to
Manila and opened a saloon, the Merchants club, which again resulted in
financial failure. Finally in 1903 the
jiowning blow came with the sinking of the little bri*; Tropic Bird.
With 000 native blacks aboard while
bound from the I'ijil islands for the
nitrate plantations of Chile and Peru
the Tropic Bird car.iiized. He escaped,
but in this "black-blrdlng" venture

was one of the best liked of men. A
story is still told when old cronies
of   the   pea   v  t   together   which   well
illustrates  the  big-hearted  generosity
of the old smuggler.
When Whaley escaped to Yokohama
the six men who were sei.t to San
Quentin believed that their chief ha 1
given them the double cross and
swore under solemn oath on obtaining
their freedom to kill Whaley. Tht
first freed from prison, true to this
oath, stowed away in a transport to
reach Manila and striking distance of
Whaley, whom he had learned was
runuing the Merchants' club.
Take Care of Old Mate.
On arriving at Manila the stowaway
ex-convict was" a sorry spectacle. His
clothing was ln tatters, he had no
money for food and the only man he
knew in all Manila was Bill Whaley.
In this plight he finally sought out
Whaley. The old smuggler took him
by the hand, outfitted him, introduced
him to his friends and sent him home
so overwhelmed with gratitude as to
be ashamed of his former thought.
Friends established Whaley in a
beautiful old Spanish residence at
Emita, on the outskirts of Manila,
which he opened as a private boarding house. But his financial failures
had preyed on his mind and his health
began to fail him. He developed a
serious disease and a purse was raised
to send him back to the state. He
died penniless in San Francisco in
1905.
As her old master, the Halcyon has
fallen from her former pedestal ol
glory. I.ast year she was taken te
Alaska and used as a plant in which
salmon were dressed and mild cured
She is now tied up in the Duwamlsh
river near Georgetown, and probably
will be taken north again next season.
But underneath the dirt and grayness
of age, the slim, graceful lines that
distinguished her as a yacht and attracted the attention of the king of
smugglers still may be seen.

In raising the embargo on arms imported into Mexico
President Wilson virtually tells the two sides to go to it
and kill each other off as fast as they can. It's a case of
let dog eat dog.
Besides being able to raise number one hard wheat.
Manitoba also seems able to produce number one hard

the prairie province legislature.
From the standpoint of an outsider, it looks like
mighty poor sportsmanship for the imperial war office to
bar the Ross rifle from Bisley meetings. It wouldn't
have appeared so raw if the Canadian teams had not always been so high up in the scoring.
Here's the conclusive argument for vGtes for women.
Five of them, who objected to the presence of a sixth in
their Illinois village, rode her on a rail out of town. When
they can pull off stunts like that they're just as much entitled to the vote as the men who engineer lynchings.
Evidently the new Port Coquitlam council isn't "recognized" by the provincial government, though it was
elected hv the ratepavers. At any rate the mayor's recommendations for police and license commissioners seem
'to have sagged in the middle and blown away when it came
to making the appointments from Victoria.

DOMINION BANK REPORTS
A SATISFACTORY  YEAR
Net profits of ?9;10,000 are reported
by the Dominion bank for the year
ending December 31, 1913. Not only
were these the largest profits in the
history of the bank, but further examination of the report shows evi
dence of many other gains. The proportion of quickly available assets Is
unusually large. It is also somewhat
exceptional in visw of the period of
tight money to note that nearly all
the new stock offered by the bank
has been subscribed for by the shareholders.
During the year the reserve fund
was increased by $811,000 and the
capital stock by a like amount. The
reserve fund now stands at $6,811,600,
one million dollars more than the
capital stock. Gains were ma'de in
interest bearing deposits, in current
loans and in total assets, the latter
now amounting to $80,606,000. The
increase in the loans is evidence that
the Dominion bank did its full share
of furnishing funds for the business
require inonts at the several points
where represented.
Declared They Would Part Before the
Honeymoon Waned, But They
Vigorously Deny That.    .
San Francisco, Feb. 4.���Leo A.
Kosenfeld, wealthy manufacturing
chemist of Chicago, who married MIsj
Edith Yeomans, daughter of W. C.
Yeomans, a Seattle lumberman, ln
Honolulu, on January 26, after a brier
but ardent courtship, denies that the
trouble so serious as to necessitate
re-sort to the divorce courts exists between himself and his bride.
j "We did have a little quarrel during the voyage from Honolulu," a.i-
mitted Rosenfeld, "but it was nothing
serious and nothing that couldn't b,*
patched up. That has been done be
fore in other cases, you know."
When asked if it was true that she
intended to sue for a legal separation
from her husband, Mrs. Rosenfeld replied: *
"That Is all nonsense."
According to fellow passengers on
the Manchuria, Rosenfeld objected to
an ultra-split skirt in which the bride
appeared upon deck on the second day
out cf Honolulu. A quarrel followed
and when the steamship was passing
into the Golden Gate, Mrs. Rosenfeld
is reported to have removed her wed
ding ring and tossed it Into the sea
with the remark that she would institute divorce proceedings as soon as
she reached her home in Seattle.
"I never did a trick like that," declared Mrs. Hosenfeld when told of
the reported Incident. "It was this
way. The rinK was a trifle too large
for my finger and it simply slipped
off and rolled overboard."
Rosenfeld  said   his  wife would    go
direct to Seattle for a visit with her
mother, after which she would return
here and accompany him to their new
home in Chicago.
The courtship and marriage of
Rosenfeld and MIbs Yeomans, according to passengers on the Manchuria,
was a record breaker for the islands.
They met at a reception and danca on
the evening of January 25. Before, the*
dance was over their engagement had
been announced and before the night
was over a sleepy marriage license*
clerk and an equally sleepy parson
had put the finishing touches to the*
romance.

TANGO AND WALTZ
HAVE LIKE STORIES
Those who enjoy tha tango danco
will be pleased to learn that the
astrologers predict It will survive un-1
til 1924. After that it will fade away,
not because the moral sense cf th;
civilized world will havo vanquished
it, but because another dance will be
duo to arrive. It has been discovered that the sun spots have some relation to dancing, and an Ingenious
writer points out that the sun's pulsations of 11 years, its maximums of 22
years, and its grand maximum of 100
years correspond to the waltz of 1812,
the gallop of 1824, which also ushered
in the lechoUische; the mazurka of
1SI16, the polka of 1845, the Quadrille
of LSf.2, ihe lancers of 1861, the cancan of 18G9, the pasde-quatre of 1882,
the Boston of 1898, tiie cake-walk of
1902, and the tango of 1913. Probably
this correspondence is not accurate,
but it is accurate enough for the pur-
peises rf astrology, and In any event
the dates might have been altered
had it seemed necessary to gain
credence for the theory.
Discovering the Waltz.
Perhaps the tango i3 a new dance

opposition to a supposedly new ei-'.'-..-.*
is nothing new. if th \ kaiser and
many i Iher dignitaries have banned
the tango, Napoleon and Byron albo
banned tiie waltz. However, in this
one respect Napoleon was a wiser
man than the kaiser. Ho d d not
como out openly and flat-footedly and I
condemn the waltz. Perhaps he waa i
a wis,* enough critic, though he was :
not fojid of dancing, to see that the
wait/, was a wonderful improvement
upon the* dances it succeeded, and ,
that no official cursing of it would
destroy its charm. Moreover, lie may :
have reflected that it was an honor
for the French army to have discovered, if they did not invent, the dance;
tor it may bs said that "one of the
trophies of the Napoleonic wars which
all the world has enjoyed for a century is the waltz.
A Thuringian Dance.
It was a hundred years ago that
the Fri noh soldiers then in Tlniringia
discovered the piasants dancing a
new dance. Even the, presence of
the Invaders did not destroy their Joy
in I1 Perhaps it was like wine to
them. When they were miserable
thry danced to become happy again,
ami when they were happy they
danced to become happier yet. At
any rate the French soldiers were
t-nchanied with this gay new dance,
with the new tempo and the voluptuous swing to it. They set themselves
ni Once to learn the step, and when
they returned to France half the
nrmy was waltzing mad. for it was
ihe waltz that they had discovered.
in a few weeks the waltz erase had
spread all OVtr Paris, and had crossed Into London. Perhaps tne ping-
pong craze of 16 years ago and the
iliabolo craze of ten years ago alone
are comparable to tin* waltzing frenzy
that Bpread over soclsty. People
wall ������ i singly along tho street. Tin y
wait        upi ii  the grass, the    cobl' ���
stones and wherever they could walk.
Society Divided by Waltz.
Nevertheless, there was an element
In society that pronounced against
the innovation, and the waltz was
not permitted to conquer without
fighting for its triumphs. The two
most influential women in Paris took
sides, one for it, the other against it.
The champion was Mine. de> Stael.
Her opponent was the Countess de
Geulis, who was at that time a sort
of governess in the royal family, with
treat influence over Napoleon. He
instructed her to turn her powerful
mind upon this matter of the waltz,
and to draw up a report on it. Thl3
she did, and she reported against the
waltz. Napoleon agreed with her.
Prcbably Genlls was against the waltz
because de Stael was for it, and per
haps because de Stael was for it
Napoleon refrained from taking a
very emphatic position in disapproval.
ln England Byron was found in
strange company, lie was with tine
blue stockings, and provided them
with their campaign, literature in hia
"Ode to tin* Waltz." But the waltzers
retorted that they did not recognize
Bsyron as a dictator upon matters of
molality for Immorality, Indeed, was
the sin alleged against the waltz ���and
gradually the open opposition ceased,
and the waltz became as firmly and
generally established as any dance
can in a community where many
people believe all dancing to be a sin.
Many Varieties of Dances.
One hundred years ago there were
quite 20 ways of waltzing, and in this
respect the. tun;*.o shows a decided advance, since there are as many varieties of tangoes as of picklts, including "Tres Moutarde." There was a
waltz for every taste. It was proved
tbat one could waltz very decorously
with the hands just touching, as In
the minuet. Once this was proved
nobody seemed to desire to emphasize
the point, and hardly had all the
audacity been refined out of the danc?
of the Thuringian peasants than the
waltz position as we know it today
became accepted without much protest. This is likely to be the history
of the tango. At any rate, according
to the astrologists, it has ten years
In which to complete its evolution.

People who sleep well quickly recover from an ailment, and for this reason, venrs ago. Bleep was pronounced
ns one of nature's enrc-s for nil diseases. Experiments go to prove tbat
a person who accustoms himself or
herself to n full and regular sleep Is
not so liable to nu attack of disease ns
the person who forgoes his proper rest
Moreover, when attacked by nny ailment, a good sleeper recovers the
quicker.
"Laugh and live" Is n time honored

course of funny stories. The patient,
who was suffering from a nervous
breakdown through overwork, obeyed
the doctor's Instructions, and tbe effect of hearty laughter soon brought
him round. The menu recommended
was one funny story nt each meal witji

Seattle, Feb. 4.���An amendment to
the present cafe ordinance which
would make it unlawful for a woman
to enter any cafe or dining room in
which liquors aire served, was today
urged by Chief of Police Bannlck before the licence committee of the city
council, as the only means of prcperiy
regulating the cafes.
Chief Bannlck contended that the
amendment he proposed which has
the endorsement of Mayor Cotterill,
and has by him been advocated at
various times, would not prevent a
woman   Brom  patronizing restaurants
tinually till well In tbe spring. Then
some time tbe last of April take them
out nnd plant them In the ground, pref
erably with east exposure, till fall
and they will be ready for use and
just ns pretty the following winter.
Snapdragons In all kinds of glorlone
colors and shades, including pinks, yellows, rich crimsons nnd crenm whites
can be made to bloom from Novembet
till well into March. Exposure in a
south window agrees with tbem tbe
best, watering them abundantly, bul
not recklessly.
Petunias also make splendid wintei
window plants. The silvery tint pink
ones are especially pretty and are
cared for in much the same fashion
ns snapdragons.    If the plants appeal

men interpreted the change proposed to droop nnd grow weary after a month
to at least empower the polic" to ar- or so of steady blooming they have tc

B. SMITH has a dry ��oods store in a certain Canadian City. He does a good business, but wants
* to do more. He believes that Advertising in his local newspaper is the
way to get more business. So !.o advertises���every now and then.
This is where our friend Snvih is wrong���in advertising every now and
then. He should advertise regularly���as frequently as his local newspaper
is published.
Smith says he wants to advertise regularly, but he can't always find the time
to prepare advertisements, which is true, for he is his own buyer, sales-
manager, director of store service, credit man and half-a-do/.en other things.
What Smith should do is this: If he is located in one of the smaller cities, in
which there are no advertising agencies giving a locaj copy service, and he
has no one among his own staff* qualified by instinct or experience to
write the daily announcements, he should go to the publisher of the newspaper in which he means to advertise, requesting his help. In nine cases
out of ten, the publisher, through hi9 advertising manager, will be only too
glad to give Smith the assistance desired.
If Smith is located in one of the larger cities he should secure the services
of a recognized advertising agency which will take over the work of preparing his advertisements.
In this way Smith can be sure of having his advertisements prepared regularly Bnd intelligently, with no more trouble to him than the supplying of
the information required by the writer of the advertisements.
So Smith can do more business, find more business means a larger income
for himself, to say nothing of other gains ihat go hand in hand with the
doing of bigger business.

A quiet but pretty    wedding    took

Bain when he was employed ln the
secret service of tho Boer government and declared him to be one of
the most desperate characters he had
ever encountered. Nothing more diabolical, asserted General Smuts, could
have been committed by an invading
force than what the deported leaders
had attempted.
General Smuts quoted from the addresses of the deported strike leaders and laid great stress on the gravity of the native question. He said
that while the government was considering the grievances presented by
the Trades Federation after the July
riots, Waterson, one of the deported
leaders, stated that the federation
was forming a provisional gpvernment
and that it "intended to oust the present incompetent government."

JEALOUS WIFE
HAS TROUBLES
Says   She   Wants  a    Divorce,

.Miss Shipman, a young, talented
woman of exceptional ability, has a
moral lesson on the triaU and tribulations of a jealous wife, that should
reach the hearts of every husband

There is no better way to convey this
lesson than by the excellent work of
both Miss Shipman and Mr. Harrington Wheeler, who presents the
"Divorce Cure," a socLty drama from
the pen of Win. Giilett, in the role of
Mr. and .Mrs. West. The play deals
with a mixture of business and love

MAY GIVE MILLION
YET NOT A LIFE
Never Save  the World  With  Money,
Says Speaker Trying to Raise
$5,030,003.
St. Louis, Feb. 4.���"We are never
going to save the world with money,"
J. Campbell White of New York, general secretary of the Laymen's Missionary Movement, said in addressing
the "men ariel millions:" committee
here today.
The committee is planning a campaign to raise $5,000,000 of a $6,000,-
000 missionary and educational fund
to which R. A. Long of Kansas City,
has pledged $1,000,000.
"Money," Mr. White continued, "is
the cheapest thing we have. A man
may give a million and not yet give a
life. No man has money to buy personal Immunity from the requirement
of bearing personal witness to others.
No number of paid, professional witnesses ever can convert America, but
money can support the witnesses of
the Spirit who are needed ln the task
of conversion."
Mr. White said church members
needed a "baptism cf boldness."
Stephen J. Cory said the greatest
danger of the men and million movement was that it would develop an
aristocracy of giving. He said that
only subscriptions of $500 or more are
being sought for the fund, and Insisted that no mctter how much might
be expected that way, the movement
should not be content with the gifts
of rich men alone. A vigorous campaign, he said, should be pushed for
the nickels and diries of those cf
moderate means.
M.   Holyoke,  widow   of  the  eccentric
* Maine lumberman,    took    the    stanl
and presented documents involved in
the contest of her husband's will.
The documents were an order on
the executors of the Holyoke estate to
pay Mrs. Cora Holyoke $5000; :i letter to Mrs. Holyoke expressing contrition for having conspired to mak"
her appear wanton; and a note of instruction to ICdwin F. Hahn, of Passu
dt-ua, one of the executors, to withdraw from the records of the court:,
in Maine' and California all papers
"detrimental to the character" of
Mrs. Holyoke.
All of these documents were dated
August 9, 1911, the day after Holyoke
made the will now under contest by
his son, Sydney Archibald Holyoke,
of Milwaukee. In the will Holyoke
cut the widow off with $1000 and declared she had received $3000 additional in a property settlement following a confession she Is alleged to
have made that she was unfaithful to
her marriage vows. As soon as Mrs.
Holyoke had Identified the signature
on each as that of her late husband,
attorneys for the executors and the
principal heirs, the twin daughters of
Caleb Holyoke, rose and loudly announced :
We unequivocally declare each and
every one of these documents forgeries."
This climax and the introduction or
the disputed documents were preceded by the testimony of H. C. Young,
a chauffeur of Bangor, who said he
had received the papers from Mr.
Holyoke in August, 1911, with instructions to deliver the letters ad-
dr*esse-d to MrB. Holyoke six months
after his death and the order in
struc'ing his executors to pay her
$5000 a year after his death. Youiu
testified that he observed tho injunction In regard to the letter, but delivered the order for the $5000 payment before the expiration of nine.

Democratic   Party   Goes   on   Record
Making  Woman's Suffrage a
State Question
Washington, Feb. 4.���Hopes of ��Uf-|
fraglsts that the present Democratic j
administration would enact fenleral
legislation enfranchising the women
cf the country' were dastie'd today
when Representative I'ndcewood of
Alabama, majority leader of the houfe
put the Democratic party squarely
on record as opposed to federal action.
Representative I'nderwood asserted
the Demeicratlc party took the position
that the question of suffrage wns one
which should be left to the individual
states  to settle.
The question cauwi up in the discussion of the Immigration bill in the
house and there was considerable de-
batp as to just wtat action of the
Democratic house caucus ln rejecting
the Raker women suffrage resolution
meant. Representative Lenroot of
Wisconsin, said that by defeating the
proposition to create a new woman
suffrage committee, tho Democrats
had taken the position that women |
should not have an opportunity to be
heard on the suffrage question.
"The gentleman knows," replied
Representative Underwood, "tho judiciary committee has been vested for
many years with jurisdiction over this
question and it has repeatedly granted
hearings to women ns to whether legislation shall be be passed, submitting
to the states a constitutional amendment for woman suffrage.
"1 was at one time a member of
the Judiciary committee and recall a
hearing given to Susan B. Anthony. 1
notice that during the entire time the
gentleman's party was in charge of
this house It refused to report a suffrage resolution. The proposition that
came before the Democratic caucus
was merely to provide for a new committee, giving jurisdiction of tho new
committee, which Jurisdiction Is already possessed by one of the ablest
committees of this house. This committee has had such jurisdiction almost since tho beginning of the government. There Is no objoctlon on the
part of these ladles ub to what committee they shall go before They
wanted their legislation reported anel
'.bought they could not get It reported
from the committee ln charge, so
they wanted to create a hew committee. That Is all there Is to It. It Is
not a question of taking from thoni
the right to be heard."
"Will the gentleman, as leader of
the majority," asked Mr. Lenroot,
"me his Influence In the house for a
report of that resolution so that we
tnuy have an opportunity hero to vote
on It?"
"I would not do so, because. I am
not In favor of It," repllrd Mr. Underwood. "If there Is one fundamental
principle that my party stands for, It
is local self-governmeiit. If the Democratic party stands for one thing
above all others, It Is thot tho right

fur trader of the north, accompanied
by 20 men, has arrived at Athabasca
with a cargo of fur, the value of which
cannot be much less than $100,000.
They came all the way from Fort
Chrpweyan, a distance of 500 miles, in
the coldest kind of weather, the thor-
mometer once descending to 60 below
zero.
But after all the hardships and discomforts of Ilie arduous journey, at a
time when mest men would have been
glad to lazily enjoy the delights of civilization, Colin Eraser and his merry
hand were not content to remain Idle.
They heard that the Athabasca bon-
splel was in full swing. That settled
It Colin, who is some skip himself
when opportunity e>ffers. Immediately
?et *to work and formed a rink ou; of
his own party, and, what Is more,
with blocd in their eyes and ambition
In their hearts they actually went to
the bonspiel and succeeded In cleaning
up the Edmonton rink that h<jl previously won the Grand Challenge.
Having demonstrated their ability
with the rocks, and shown all tbe
world what a man can do when he Is
on his mettle, the party will travel
with their cargo. They have 40 live
silver foxes with them and their furs
Include the following: '25 black foxes,
75 silver fcxes, 150 cross foxes, 250 reil

Denounces Aspersion on Character of Girl Students.
Berlin,  Fob.  4.��� Members    of    the i
American colony in  Berlin- men anel
women���-crowded   to  overflowing   the
rooms of the American Women's club
last evening nt a special meeting to
protest against what is considered an
aspersion on tho character of American girls studying music abroad and
American  singers in  European opera'
houses.    The ireccnt statements attri- \
huteil  to  Walter Damrosch and Alan
Qluek by a New York musical review i
are looked upon as an Insult to Ameri-
can  women  and an exaggeration and
distortion   of   conditions   surrounding
their study of music In Europe.    It. is
asserted  that these  statements  were
made In behalf cf a campaign to keep
American students at home. i
Dr. Alice II. Luce, vice-president of.
the c'.ub, and principal of the Willard
school for girls, presided at tho meeting.
Resolutions  mentioning the journal
���Musical   America- by   name,    were
adopted.    They e,aid in part.
''Representatives of all forms pt
organized American life in the OcX-
inaii capital, capable of speaking from'
first-hand knowledge of actual conditions prevailing in Berlin, vigorously protest against the accusations
lodged against American women.
which were conceived and made with
utter distortion of the truth.
"Resolved that it be made known in
the Untied States by every means possible that the suggestion that American girls study in Berlin at the peril
of their morals, at the risk of financial ruin anel to their physical disadvantage is a base calumny and a fantastic untruth."

WOMAN'S  SUPERIORITY
ATTESTED EY DOCTOR
Masculine conceit received a death
blow at the Institute of Hygiene In
London recently when Dr. A. T. Scho*
field in a lecture on "The National
Importances! Woman's Health" vole-
; ed Borne home truths concerning the
characteristics of the two sexes.  He
: said:
"The better developed the woman.
both physically anel morally, the more
un, ked the Improvement in the race.
Whereas man's physique is no longer
as Important as it was for modern
Inventions have  replaced  mere mus-
; cle und woman's body is always Important since she is the bearer of the
human   race.
"That nature herself recognizes the
greatc. value of tfomen is proved by
the fact that during the siege of Paris
when the population was badly fed
or starving, nearly all the children
born wen* boys. Sei yon see nature
only makes girls of good material,
whereas she' will make boys' of anything. I
"Again," continued Dr. Sohofiuld
bravely, while affecting to Ignore the
scowls of tin* male pr.rti..n of the atfdl-
; ence, " if you come te> consider tin*
points which distinguish the human
species from the beasts, you will find
that women possess these to an extent  more marked than men.
"For Instance, a woman's ear is
mi re human than a man's and so is
hei lower jaw, as well as hr-r skin
Nor is there any animal whose' fijrst
Eingd Is longer than his third. Now
you "ill find that tills is the case
with most women -and certainly with
all good  looking women."
VICTORIA  HARBOR  PROVES
TO  BE TOO SHALLOW
Mrs. Margaret Howe, wife of Dr.
George Howe nnd a favorite niece of
President Wilson, bus decided tu sneri-
ti.i* four years nf gnyety and unalloyed
pleasure nt the national capital for ti
life* of drudgery ilud hardship on the
singe.
Miss Howe, us this ben nil fill young
woman is now known professionally,
recently appeared ns Marie in ti dramatization of Longfellow's Immortal poem
"Evangeline" at n New York theater.
While the part in no way taxed tier
abilities, she made the most of her opportunities, In fact, her poses and
complete mastery of silent expressions
were such that many an actress of far
greater renown might seriously e-ovet.
Ah Miss Margaret Smyth Flinn she
was one of the most admired and
beautiful girls In the south. Her home,
In Columbia, S. C, was noted*'for its
delightful hospitality and brilliant social functions, which culminated In her
in a fringe Into the White House family
n short while ago.
Her husband's professional work as
e physician being at Chapel Hill. N.
C her fame as a hostess lu that town
became widely known, she and her
youthful husband entertaining ninny
of the foremost met] and women of
the day. purtlcnl'irly those Identified
Willi literary and artistic spheres.
Miss Howe's nmlillloii and enthusiasm to make a career for herself on
the Stage were so sincere that licr bus
band und family readily consented to
her receni appearance on Ihe boards.
In all events. If Miss Howe pursues
her career with discretion and Intelligence and does not permit her pret
ty head to become turned through
an overdose of flattery and udmlrn-
tf'ii. it Is safe to chronicle n brilliant
artistic future for this daughter of
the south.

Light and Heavy Hauling
Victoria, Feb. 4.���-In order to allow
the big clipper windjammer Aryan
to get outside, drawing 24.6 feet of
water, it is probable that one of the j
harbor dredges will shortly be put i
to work dredging, out a channel in
the upper harbor to a point off the
Canadian Puget Sound mills.
With his ship fully laden with lum- j
ber. Captain Maclauchlan expects her
to be well down iu the* water, and
he wants the port authorities to guarantee him ge'tting out of the upper
harbor with that draft.
By the time the Arrayan completes j
loading toward  the latter part of the|
month,     She   will   have   stowed   and
above  decks  well  over  1,500.000  feet;
of lumber.    The actual work of loading the vessel was started yesterday,
and in order to facilitate loading operations the bow of th** craft was swung
Inshore,   while  her  stern   is  anchored:
in the stream.
Considerable dredging work is now *
being done in the vicinity of the new |
site* for the marine and fisheries de- ���
pot,  and it   would  only  be  matter of j
a  few days work for the Mudlark or \
on,* of the 'Oiler dredges to dig out
a channel of sufficient depth to allow
the   heavily   laden   vessel   to   pass  out
lu  safety.    The  Aryan  was chartered
to  leiad   1,700,0011   fe*c*t  of lumber,  and
it will be the largest cargo that ever
went out of the inner harbor.

MINIMIZED IN 6. C.
THE NEW WESTMINSTER NEWS.
���svas   sever*
Much Prorjress    Made    During    Past
year in Guarding Forests From
Flames.
During the past year, says Conser-
fatlon mucli progress has been made
in the province of Uritish Columbia
In connection with minimizing firs
risks through the disposal of slash
resulting from lumbering operations.
In 1913 .according to the provincial
forest branch, about 20,000 aereB of
lumbering slash were burned in that
province, aud a much larger area
v.ould have been burned had It not
been for an extremely wet autumn.
On the coast and In the Interior, several experimental an'us were burned
by the forest brunch, which also, lu
, uop.ration with the de|iartment of
public works, burned a great many
miles of slush along public roads.
Such Inflamable debris constitutes a
u rlouH lire menace as long as It Is
allowed to remain undisposed of.
Th<* forest branch, iu co-operation
with private laud owners, secured the
burning cf quantities of slash created
by mad and railroad construction
through private lands. It was a condition or the charter of th} railways
now building through the province
aggregating 1800 miles in length
through timbered territory that where
tiinbi r Is taken from crewn lands
for construction purposes, the slash
shall be piled and burned, scattered
and burned or lopped, according to
the direction of forest officers. This
was done over an area of nearly a
quarter of a million acres.
About one hundred and twenty timber sals are completed or under negotiation with private companies, both
lumber and pulp companies, and the
brush  disposal   Is an   important  provision  of eaeli  timber  sale contract.
Specific information is being collected
by  the  forest branch as  to the cost
I or brush disposal,  but it is too early
fRS yet to make definite announcement
I of the results.

Spokane, Feb. 3.���"When u man is
nurBe to his own child, a contractor, a
male housewife, a foreman on his
work, while his wife is away singing
or giving music lessons, Is some job
and a physical impossibility," said
Carl l). Smith, whose wife is Biiing
him for divorce In Judge 11. L, K;n-
nan'B division of superior court, yesterday. "My mother-in-law knew the
size oi my bank account before she
would give her consent to our marriage," continued Smith, "and it was
on condition that I give* my wife every
advantage to further her musical
ability thut the consent of her parents was given."
In answer to Attorney S. It. Stern's
cross-examination, Smith said that
"when I came to my senses I had
spent $500 on our honeymoon, which
included u suit made of outing cloth
for my wife, railroad trips, aud a $iJ0
fee to the minister."
Mrs. Smith sat cfbse to her attorney through the day's session und
was wreathed in Biniles during her
husband's recital.
Wrote to Edwin Baker.
"Ever elnce we were married, in
1907, she lias been in correspondence
Willi an Edwin liaker, to whom, I un
derstand, she was engaged before
moving to Spokane. Certainly, 1 remonstrated to her about this and her
answer to me was that there waa no
love or sentiment in their letters, but
that liaker, who was a law ttudent In
the University of Michigan, was of
such an esthetic temperament that he
needed her sympathy and courage,
i which she would write. However, she
always refused to let mo see the letters. She Bald ths letters had only
iliterary value and that if I persisted
; In seeing them, I was jealous of her.
��� She  knew  that  I  never  touched  her
mull.
I    "When she returned from   brr trip I
jeiast    she    confessed    that    she    had:
I agreed  to  live  with me  until   Baker;
j could finish his law course, then they
[would  live together.    On another oc-
jcasion sli? apparently turned against
| Baker   and    said    that she    hoped a
divine power would strike her dead if
she  was to marry  Baker.    It was at j
this  confession   I   fainted   dead  away
^r.d in my delirium my dead mother
and father's faces came back  to me
ai.d seemed to stand by mo.    I may J
have cursed her at that time, and if
I  ever did cr choked    her,    as    she*|
claims, it  was at  that time, which 1
can not remember."
Smith Also Musical.
Repeatedly the    defence    tried    to
bring out that Mrs. Smith had stated
that her husband was a hindrance to
|her and was not In sympathy In her j
j musical work.
Mrs. Smith's father, A. D. Scammell ]
I of  Orchard  avenue,  said  that  Smith
I was a lover of music and played the |
! guitar and harmonica   at   the   same!
time,   giving  a   very  creditable    performance. Scammell further said that!
for  the>  last  two  years  his  daughter:
had made    nearly    all    of her    own !
: clothes and many times had to walk j
1 from brr home to the car line while j
[ there- was a   horse    and    buggy    at |
��� Smith's horns.
Smith  admitted,  under    rapid    fire
; cross-examination, that he had  taken
a hot whisky sling with Mrs. Pauline
Frame at his own house when he had
come In from a trip and wa3 sick and
cold.   He vigorously denied any intention cf wrongdoing    with    the    same*
j woman   when   sb^   was   hanging  cur-
' tains in his home.   He said that Mrs.
Frame was engaged in putting up the
! curtain  and   was standing  with    one
! foot on the sewing machine and the
: ether on the window sill, and to ke?p
her from falling he  placed  his arui3
about her and helped her down.
Dance Testimony Taboo.
Any  attempt  by    the    defence    to
bring lu anything about Mrs. Smith's
: alleged   dances  was   immediately   ob*
i jected to by Attorney Stern and Judge
] Kennan   sustained   him   because   the
defence could not show any of these
�� dances were ever Indulged in outside
Iof Mrs. Smith's or her parents' home.
"I Was satisfied," said the defendant, "that my wire wanted to make
that trip east to see this F.dwin Baker.
She told ma that she wanted to go
to attend a meeting of her college
alumni and I objected for the reason
that I had about $500 tied up In a
building at that time. My mother-in-
law made It so disagreeable that I
finally consented. She went without
kissing me or bidding me goodby. Just
before this we lived in North Yakima,
where I bad an interest in ths Tieton
project, and becauBe her parents
wanted her close to them we moved
to Spokane to pleuse them.
"I admit that I am not a good dancer, but during the pow wow here last
summer she danced at several different balls, where everybody was ragging to the tune of 'In My Harem.' I
was a wallflower and she danced with
men then that she had never seen be*-
fore."
One Woman Fainted.
That the defendant had taken more
than ordinary care of the baby during
the last five years was a point scored
by the defence during the afternoon
session. When the baby was ill with
scarlet fever it was the husband who
was selected to care for it six wee-ks,
while the wife was teaching music,
witnesses said. The method of treatment of babies was well brought out
and sympathetic glance.? were given
the defendant from all points of the
court room, which wa3 so crowded
that one woman fainted.
It was during the quarantine.
Smith said, that his wife entertained
a youiiK man, Rolla McCllntock, at her
parents' home on Beveral occasions
aud that he remonstrated with her
about this. McCllntock was the sole
guest on a camping trip, he stated,
and tltfs mad 3 him angry also.
Six witnesses were called to substantiate Smith's testimony. Three

���BIG  BROTHER   ELK"  SAVES
BOY THIEF  FROM JAIL
sr
It Is Service That Backs Up
Advertising Most Successfully
In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
dues not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
experience.
That the more progressive business
, men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store." "We pay the clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
lilies of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.
