Mr. Barnard did not expect to revolutionize everything in a single day,
but he did want wcrkingmen to get
the full benefit of their labor. They
should have water and light at cost.
He also favored the municipal coal
wharf. Such things were coming and
Nelson's purchase of its street railway was a criterion.
He was particularity strong in
favoring the half holiday bylaw. The
petition against it was supposed to
have names of 80 merchants; half j
of them were of professional an
estate men. "When that petition was
presented." he stated, "a man said
the merchants were the real backbone of New Westminster. This is
an insult to the working man." (a
voice���"where would the merchants
be if it wasn't for the workers?") The
only way to'settle this was by a city
bylaw that workingmen, if elected,
would pasu. He opposed the recent
grants to sectarian institutions. If
such could not stand alone they did
not deserve to stand at all. What
kept Industries away from New Westminster was inflated land values, was
tho speaker's parting shot.

It may be a flattering thing to have the members of
a conference of the great powers look over the field for
tbe right man for a delicate position and then light on
you as the victim, but, however flattering such a decision
may be to the man who is asked to play the role of the
royal goat, it doesn't hold out to him any prospect of his
being able to exercise his carpet slippers beside the family hearth for some time.
This is about the predicament in which William of
Wied, now King William of Albania, finds himself. The
powers, with their everlasting procrastination and their
moral fear of treading on each others corns, made a sad
mess of the Balkan business. Tiiough they all recognized
this, not one of them would admit it, so when they went
a-looking for a head to stick under the newly created
crown of Albania they made up their minds that it must
be a good head and one that would help to redeem the
standing lost by them jn their mauling of the Balkan
problem. Therefore they chose William of Wied; and the
wonder of it all is that Prince William, with his large
stock of common sense, allowed himself to be chosen.
The Wied family was a continental pioneer in the
movement to allow the people to have a say in the way
they should be governed. Its members have been political
and religious tolerants for centuries and they have had
the reputation of being a pretty brainy lot all along. King
William's job, briefly, is to climb upon the new throne of
Albania and conduct a perpetual object lesson in government for the rest of the Balkan states. When one considers the fact that the rest of the Balkan states, to say-
nothing of his own Albanians, haven't had any object lessons for several score years but their own rapacious pillaging on one hand and the cruel oppression of the Turk
on the other, it is no wonder that William's new job is
classed as no sinecure.
The mere fact that William accepted the position is
pretty nearly proof that tbe powers have given him to
understand that they would back him in his reforms. Of
course, such an understanding could not be acknowledged
openly and William probably knows that if things go
wrong with him, he will be elected to carry the load, while,
with upspread palms, the powers will sing in concert "Get
the hook."
Verily, the new king is not to be envied.
An Uphill Waterfall and a Tree That

Nature iu tne tropics, left tn herself, j

Is harsh, aggressive, savage: looks as
though she wanted to bang you with
her dangling ropes or Impale you on
her thorns or engulf you iu the ranks
of ber gigantic ferns.
Iler mood Is never as placid and
sane as lu the north. There is n tree
iu the Hawaiian woods that suggests
u tree gone mud. It is called the ban
tree. It lies clown, squirms anil wriggles nil over the ground like a wounded snake. It gets up nnd then takes
to earth again. Now It wants to be a
vine; now It wants to be a tree. It
throws somersaults: It makes itself
into loops and rings; It rolls; It reaches;
it doubles upon Itself. Altogether It
Is the craziest vegetable growth 1 ever

A small brook comes down off the

100 Years Since Treaty of Ghent
Was Sinned.
It Was First Used In a Yale-Harvard
Game In 1876.
Frederick Wlnlhrop Thayer of Co
hasset. Harvard '7s, captain of tlte
famous vnrslty nines of 1870. 1877
and 187M. was the inventor of the
catcher's mask. The days when Thayer
entered Harvard baseball differed

Montreal. Jan. 6.���The BignlfiC-t'Ce
of the peace centenary celebration
i was outlined by E. H. Seaman.:!
j organizing secretary of the Canadian
Peace Centenary association, at a
meeting in Montreal recently. Mr
Scammell said that on Christmas eve,
1914, it would be exactly 100 years
since the signing of the treaty of
Ghent, which put a stop t i the war
of 1812 between Canada and Great
Britain, on one side, and the United
States on the other.
The steps at present being taken
are to ensure that peace for a milieu-
turn, asserted the speaker. There are
three committees at work, in Canada,
Great Britain and rhe United States,
and their program includes the erection of monuments, the holding of
services of' thanksgiving in the
churches, public festivities, and an
educational propaganda in the schools
and universities.
"The educational end is perhaps the
most important, and it    is desired  to
make it touch all  our children    and
students," he declared.    "Very largely
tile young people are brought  up on
a diet of war and its    glories.    The
principal events in history, as recorded  in the school text books, are victories,  antl  almost   every  war  was  a
righteous one.    None of the committees engaged in this movement is   a
peace   or  arbitration   society,  though
it is recognized that an adequate celebration  of the  last hundred years of
peace   will   do  more   towards  the  extension of    the    ideals    of   universal
peace than anything else. Throughout
Canada.   In  every   school,   both   large
and small, Catholic    and    Protestant.
we desire to do something which will
bring   forcibly   before   the   minds   cf
the children ol today, the   men   and
women of Toronto, the significance of
the event we are commemorating."
|     In conclusion, Mr.  Scammell asked
that  a  strong  committee be    formed
here, including members of the   city
��� council,   board   of   trade,   boards    of
; education, school principals, the press,
labor   unions,   patriotic   and   women's
societies.   Already there are 42 names
, on the list, and he suggested that the
i mayor call    a  meeting    of the    citv
council at an  early  date in order to
put  the organization en its feet.
I    The    mayor    expressed     sympathy
with   the  celebration,  and  asked  Mr.
, Scammell  to prepare and submit  details. Controller Godfrey was also interested.

Life for a Life Theory and Increasing
Crop of Murderers In the Old
London, Jan. G.���The papers have
had a contribution trom official
sources of a very interest ing nature
as to the ethics of banging.
Some time ago there* was a brutal
murder at Oldham, of an aged shopkeeper und two youths who committed
il w* re trie*tl and sentenced to death.
Cue was nearly IS and the other just
over 20, The home secretary reprieved the younger and approved the
sentence on the eider. The townsfolk
rose in revolt on the principle of "all
or none."
Deputations waited on the home
secretary, who meditated, and declined to modify bis attitude so the
elder youth will bang. He, however,
dwelt with his general policy on
hanging In an official communication,
The younger man got off solely because he was under IK and the Brit-
ish law does not execute persons under that age; while he had, according to the record been mentally deficient from his youth up. Either plea
would have saved his neck, though
nothing else would have sufficed since
the law does not recognize the Mosaic
doctrine of "a life for a life."
Justice executes several people, for
one murder if tho circumstances demand it and in the present case the
Citizens  of  Leeds,   England,  Do    the
Work of Corporation Employees
on  Strike.
London, Jan. 6. ���The whole of Kngland has been watching the strike of
corporation employees at Leeds, because it is felt that if the men succeeded the same methods of the summary "hold up" would be applied to
every other town of importance in the
United Kingdom. Wages in Leeds
range for ordinary employees from
.lis a week minimum to about 44s or
45s., and as corporation employees
are  paid  all  the  year    around,    and
thus enjoy absolute security of tenure they have an additional advantage over employees in private enterprise. In this case, practically the
whole city, with the exception, of
course, of certain sections of labor
opinion was opposed to the methods
of the men. The council itself is almost evenly balanced between Conservatives on the one hand and Labor
and Liberal on the other, the two
latter being almost equal in numbers.
On this occasion, however, the Liberal group supported the Conservative, with the result that the Labor
[section was in a hopeless minority
and even as matters stand i; does not
speak with one voice on the advisability of this strike.
For once volunteer assistance has
been able to replace expert workmanship with a fair amount of success.
Clerks have been driving the trams
and university students stoking the
gas-works fires. Private citizens
have been sweeping up the garbage
in the streets and clearing out the
dust bins. Undertakers' mutes have
'been digging the graves, and professional men looking after the waterworks. The gas works are the hardest
job, but when city aldermen put in
eight hour Bhifts at the stokeholds the
younger feneration was naturally
stirred to emulation. As a result, the
men are already beaten, and we are
beginning to breathe again, for the

dealing this week with the question
of emigration to Canada.
Speaking ai a meeting called in
connection with physical education,
he urged that no boy should be permitted to enter a trade dangerous to
his health or likely to jeopardise his
future usefulness. He believed that
money spent upon this scheme would
yield a rich harvest in the future; it
would and could help to mitigate the
present wastage ol' life and vigor.
The Times took the matter up and
the bishop explained that his remarks
had been inspired by a conversation
he had while in Canada with the
minister of agriculture. So far as he
could gather the Dominion government wished to secure as permanent
settlers young men with soiie training in agriculture. At the same time
a training in agriculture In England
did not fit _ man for similar work in
Canada. He believed that if boys
who had been warned by the medical
inspectors of schools against entering indoor trades were given a two
years' course in agriculture by the
local authorities, the Canadian authorities might be induced to add a third
year under a Canadian farmer. He
hoped that voluntary societies would
bring pressure to bear upon the local
authorities with a view to taking the
suggestion in hand at once.

Little Trouble at Gas Plant Taken to
Police Court���A Jag and Some
"It's a case of vice versa, your worship," said John Douglas when he was
arraigned in the police court yesterday morning on a charge of having
assaulted   Forbes   Waddell.
"If that's so," remarked the magls-
Ilfate, "why don't you lay an information, yourself?"
The little affair originated in the
Cunningham gas works hut, so far as
can be learned, it had nothing whatever to do with the proposal for the
city to purchase the plant from the
company. Mr. Waddell, it Is said, was
manager for Jas.' Cunningham, owner
of the gas laboratory, and in some
way fell foul of the accused, Douglas,
who, it Js alleged, forcibly removed
the then manager's body from the
gas company's premises. To this Mr.
WaeHe Unobjected and accordingly laid

showed by his testimony what line
counsel for the prisoner intended to
pursue. This was Thomas Little, the
proprietor of a rooming house at Na-
namlo at which Angelo had stayed.
His statements went to show that the
accuspd was having breakfast in Nanaimo at the hour of the morning of
the Kith of August last during which
the crown witnesses said he was in
Extension stirring up trouble among
the rioters. As Extension is seven
miles from Nanaimo and it takes
about an hour to drive between ths
two towns at an ordinary pace, this
left some leeway between the two
sides of the story.
Little's wife and daughter corroborated his testimony as also did Albert Combatly. S. J. Smith and Ellen
The Mysterious Pair.
Since the opening of the case considerable mystery has attached to the
two men who were said to have been
riding in the buggy with Angelo on
the morning of Aug. 13 and to whom
the crown witnesses said he had been
pointing out the homes of non-union
men, which later were destroyed. Yesterday the defence placed these two
nun on the stand. They turned out
to be, according to their own testimony,, two youths named John louden and Baptiste Biloni. The latter
had ridden In the rig with Angelo
from Nanaimo to Extension on Aug.
13 and they had not arrived at the
latter piac.e till some time after 10
o'clock in the morning. They had
brought up a parcel of second hand
goods for Mrs. Faglloni and tills lady's
husband had taken it out of the rig.
l/ouden had jumped into the rig abcut
a mile out of Extension and had ridden into town in it. Neither had seen
Angelo pointing out any houses along
the way, nor had he addressed any
mcb at the postoffice, as the crown
witnesses al eged.
Among other witnesses heard yesterday afternoon for the defence were
Steve Bloski and David Oilmour, both
of whom also are charged with having had a hand in the doings during
the strike troubles on Vancouver island.
The ease of Angelo will proceed
again this morning at 10:30, when
the defence will call rurther witnesHes.
The case probably will go to the jury

in a game where bump was gi - i
for bump and when* the man wan
generally played rather than the puck
the champion Beavers were liumbii I
last night at the local riuk by he
Fraser Mills septette by a score ef
5 to 1. The score by no means rem--
sents the play, and had the Champions
cut away from the rough stuff in the
opening period, which later resulted
in five of their men decorating tic
penalty bench a different tale mlglt
be told.
I_ike and Scott divided the honors
for rough play, although I-ike's ex-
hibltion well earned the three pena'-
ties handed out, Ernie Johnson finally
shooing the midget rover star off th?
ice in the final period for the rest of
the game.
There was little polish to the Circle
F display, the lumber jacks winning
their way by sheer hard and sturdy
work, while Jimmy Dunbar was nigh
impregnable between the sticks. The
Beavers on the other hand were there
with their combination work and
speed, but failed to make any showing
against a defence which ko_>t cleese*
to the nets.
Jeftord garnered tin* honors for
Eraser Mills, scoring the tirst three
goals, Box taking the other two.
Spence added to ills goalScoring
ability by going through for the lone
tally of the Beavers.
The game was rough throughout
the whole of the 45 minutes play,
several men taking the count, especially Jefford when he was kneed by
Williamson late in the contest.
Moose Win.
In the second game, the Moose
emerged from the fray against Sapperton with a well earned victory, the
lirst they have obtained tills season.
Stacey was the most effective man for
tho herd, his all round work in centre
ico being tho feature of the contest.
Incidentally he earned the only penalty of the game.
Both games were played on slew
ice owing to a defect in the mechanical  apparatus  while  an   ammonia ted
fog    hung   over    the    playing    space
through both sessions.

New   York,   Jan.   6.���And   now   the
jold  question  bobs up:    "if Ty  Cobb,
I were placed on    the    auction    block, :
; how  much  would  he  bring?"    It's  a
question 'hat may never know an an-
I swer, for the Tiger owners think quite
a bit of the said  Mr. Cobb and  may I
! keep   him   on   their   roster   until   his
playing  days  are   over.     But,   if   we
.owned   the  New   Vork  Yankees    and
j Cobb was for sale, we'd start bidding
j for him   wilh  a  mention of $300,000,
I and if there was any further competi-1
tlon   we'd  shove the amount    up    to
I $500,000.
j Stiff Price.
A half million dollars for one player
of more than unusual ability seems
like a lot of money. But in five years'
time, as a member of the Yankees,
Cobb would bring In something like
$500,000 In excess of the $500,000 purchase price. And the money he would
bring in after that, because he is a
drawing card, would be what is termed in poker circles as "velvet."
| "We don't think Cobb would be
worth that amount to any other club
than the Yankees. And here are the
reasons that make us think he's
worth that much money to the New-
York American leaguers:
Every day in the year at least 500,-
000 out-of-town people visit New York
'At    least    200,000    of    this    number
come  from   the  small    towns���towns
! where  big league  baseball    had    not
( been played.   But in these towns thev
have heard of Cobb for yearB;   have
heard of his wonderful batting stun..1*:.
of his dashing, daring  base-running,
1 of his si>ectacular fielding. They h*)*e
heard  Cobb's  praises sung day a! e"
| day,  year after  year,  and   there  has
' come to them the hope that some _ ty
j they  may  see  the  peerless Georgian
in action.
If He Were a Yankee.
Playing with Detroit, Cobb appears
' in New York city only 11 times each
, year. The Yankees have 77 home
games. If Cobb were a Yankee, that
| would make 77 games in which he
, would perform in New York, or 66
j more than at present.
It's a safe bet that with Cobb appearing in a New York uniform he
| would draw at least 1500 of these
transient visitors to the ball park
every day, no matter where the
I Yankees stood in the race. They
would be willing to pay out their
money simply to see Cobb.
It  seems a  certainty  that at  least
|1500 of the great army of New York
fans who pay their money to see the
(Giants perform would desert the Giant
i cause and  swear  allegiance    to    the
Yanks If Cobb was a member.
Thus,   as   we  figure   iL Cobb  each
day would draw 3000 fans to the Yankee ball park.   At an average price of
50 cents per head���a conservative figure��� it will be seen that the increased
daily income, with Cobb as a drawing
'card, would be $1500, or a yearly total
!of approximately $100,000 for    the 66
(extra   days   that  Cobb   would   perform
In New York.    In five years the total
would be $500,000.
A Big Drawing Card.
Cobb is the greatest drawing card
on the road. His presence on the Detroit team Is the reason for the big
profits made year after year by the
Tigers. As a Yankee he would draw-
just as well, and as we view it, the
road receipts would be Increased
about $50,000, at least, each year, or
$250,000 In five years.
: And one thing more: "Cobb alone
can't quite win a pennant, but with a
little help here and there he can at
least put a team in the fight.
' With Cobb's help, the Yankees
might soon loom up as possibilities. A
winning team always is a good drawing card, and as such the Yankees'
treasure vaults would be increa ied
each year by another $50,000, or $250.-
000 in five years.
Therefore, looking at it from our
viewpoint, Cobb, in five years, would
put something like $1,000,000 real
regular dollars into the Yankees' coffers. Doesn't seem, then, that he's
worth at least $500,000 to the club,
especially In view of the fact that he
has something like ten years of good,
first class baseball in his system ?

Grimsby, Jan. 6.���The first car load i
of Canadian  Pacific halibut, introducing a new departure In the fish trade -
of Grimsby, arrived at that port    on *
December 16 in splendid condition and
met with the hearty    appreciation o;
the traders, who were paying prohibi���
live rates for home-caught fish.    The
growing scarcity of halibut    at  English  fishing centres    is    directly    responsible for the introduction of supplies from   British Columbia and  the
reception of the first consignment of ;
eleven  tons of    frozen    halibut    has'
justified  future regular consignments.
Salmon will be similarly imported In
the season from British Columbia.
At the same time halibut is not a
very popular fish in England save
north of the Trent, where it is rather
liked. The Londoner knows of it but
little though he may get to like it by
seeing it more frequently for sale.
There would be a better niarke'
for frozen salmon since it is well
known that thousands avoid the tinned variety, however good it may be,
���from  fe*ar of ptomaine poisoning.

Purity of Water Supplied from Lake.
Second. As to purity of water, 1
find that the works of the company
'nave been so carried out and of BUCb
scope as to tend to Improve the quality
of the water delivered from Coquitlam
lak�� t*i tho city of New Westminster.
This Improvement, in quality results
from the removal of stumps and decaying logs from the swampy margins
at the lower end of Coquitlam lake
and also results from the. very thorough work of felling, removing and
burning the timber and brush within
the range of the increased height of
flowage by the new dam.
1 find from studying many bacterial
and other analyses antl from p.vsonal
inspection of the lake and the stir
roundings, that this water is of remarkable purity and freedom from
j color and turbidity. The coldness of
the water which enters the lake, the
great depth of the lake, the long period of sedimentation and exposure to
light, the character of the vegetation
in the drainage area, and above all,
the almost complete ahser.ee of human kind ( ixcept those connected
with building the dam and clearing
the lake margin from* live and dead
timber), all contribute toward a water
of exceptionaly good quality and now
that the dead timber in the swamps
at the foot of the lake mentioned
above, has been removed, the conditions are better than before this dam
was begun.
The flooded lands have been completely cleared of all timber and underbrush well above the new top waiter level of the lake for a distance of
about three miles above the city intake tower, while the remainder of
the lake shore at the head of the
including the swamp land, has
cleared to an average
feet above the old lake level or at
about, the average level of the lake
when the company are using their full
wat r supply for power purposes. This
clearing has, I believe, cost the power
company upwards of $600,000, a sum
which has been expended solely in
the interests of thn purity of the wa' ir
supply of the city.

diverted from entering the lake, and
I understand that sfmillar provision
will   be  made  relative  to  any  future
drainage at this locality from the
gate keeper's residence, or from any
fi:tur; occupancy of this camp.
Infrequently when the lake is drawn
near its natural level, there may some
times in future, as heretofore, he
some temporary turbidity, caused by
the scour of the brooks near the intake
during very heavy rains, but this is
not a serious matter and as a whole
there will be less of this turbidity in
future than before the dam was rais-
rd. The lake |g so Sheltered between
mountains that the wave wash on the
shores is not large and the digging
nut of stumps by wave wash at the
varying love-Is will be negligible.
I know of no natural surface supply of water in the world that is superior to Coquitlam lake as a source
for  domestic  supply,   and   I   find   tha:
opinion, a thoroughly safe dam,
The Spillway.
Fourth,     The   overflowing   spillway
for safety against  e\ceplionaly  heavy,
floods Is over a granite ledge, of ample
Width   and  Of  a  character  not   likely i
;to become clogged by  floating logs,!
;and   Its   discharge   is   carried   In   an
open channel to a safe distance below j
tli * dam.
Sluice Gates.
Fifth. The sluice gate structure ,
are of a durable and substantial char*
acter, :u;d the sluiceway consists of a
.tunnel through the solid granite ledge.
���This sluice is ample for the discharge
of any water that the company might
be called upon to release under articles 7 and S of the agreement of
March  24th, 1910.
No special log sluices have been :
built but there appears to be no
present need for them, and If a er
nee,led the wasieway and the channels leading to and from the sluices I
can be readily adapted to receive additional structures needed tor this
; purpose.
Increased  Area  of  Reservation.
Sixth,   The Dominion government by
an order-in-counctl, dated March 4th,
1910,   has  set   aside  as  a   reservation'
a tract of land comprising sumo 56,-;
000 acres, and embracing substantially the entire watershed of Coquitlam   lake,  and   has   thus   safeguarded
I the lake against pollution that  might
come   from   future   human   habitation
| or from promiscuous lumbering operations.     Tin*  area  now  within   the  Co-1
qultlara   reserve   is  about   four  times ,
the area  contain, tl   in   the  tract that1
was at one time proposed to be sold to I
lake,'"10   I''*t-V   of   ���N;pw   Westminster    and1,
heen   which   was confined   to  the  immedl-
level of thirty ;'"! surroundings of the lake.   The ac-
'tion of tUe Dominion government In,
extending the reserve to cover valuable   land  and   timber  in  close   prox-
; Imity to the cities of New Westmlns-
i ter and   Vancouver  should  be  indeed .
i appreciated   by   the  city   authorities.   ]

ent and to serve the purpose of gen-1

I time  preserve the  purity  of  the  city

Novelties In Footwear.
In many respects tbe changes in footwear tire radical. Hold shoes we are
accustomed to, but the gold boots
which have been brought out have not
had much of a success. High shoes
are buttoned. Iironze is coming back
to ns from lhe long ago. Boots with I
colored leather are good, polished gray
kid having a great vogue, with pearl
buttons. Patent leather Is used fot
all sorts of boots and shoes, and cut
steel auil enamel buttons and fancy toe
tips appear on only a few of the
shoes, fjtin metal calf Is new for
walking boots, but satin takes first
place for evening shoes. Buckles have
superseded all rosettes and bows, and
single rblnestones are the few exceptions. Jeweled heels have appeared on evening shoes, and some of the
stockings exhibit a rblnestone lu the
center of each pattern on the instep,
insets of lace figure on many of tbe
more costly stockings, but one cannut
do wrong lu wearing plain silk hose.
