Interesting developments are foreshadowed lu regard to ihe B. C. E. lt.

that workmen .re engaged ln clearing the brush from the three acre,
owned by the oompany to the west of

According to one of the B.C.E.R.
official, steps are expected to be
taken In the very near future for the
enlargement of the present shops and
car barns which will be made accessible not only to the Twelfth street
line but also to the Intense yards the
company is bulldln** at the rear of
the present barns.
At tbe present time a large gang ol
workmen are engaged in grading thr
freight yards between Fourteenth and
Sixteenth streets, a .donkey engint
being used to do the grading while
tracks are being laid that wlll accommodate enough freight trains at any
one time for tbe preeent and Immediate future business of tbe company
in this city.
One of the house., which has been
found te be ln the way of operations
Is being moved across the tracks to ;���
site on the north side of tbe freight

With the new addition to the rolling
stock ot tbe Interurban traffic it Is
thought that the present quarters for

Churches.
For the purpoee of bringing the
father, of the city to a full realization
of their responsibilities toward, their
son. . unique scheme has been evolved by the officers of the Young Men's
Christian association, which will, with
the co-operation of the clergy, be put
into practice on Sunday, Feb. 16,
"Fathers' Day" as It will be called on
thi. occaalon.
Briefly the scheme Is that on the
Sabbath mentioned the ministers of
the various churches throughout the
city shall devote their sermon, to
the "Boy Question" and the position
the father occupies with regard to
the same, that fathers who have sons
living away from home shall write to
them on that day and that all fathers
of boys observe tbe day by wearing
a red carnation in their button hole.
The crowning feature of "Fathers'
Day" will be a meeting ln the
Y.M.C.A. headquarter, ln the afternoon for the fathers and mothers ot
tbe city at which Rev. M. M. Moss
pastor of the First Christian church,
Vancouver will speak on "The Responsibility of the Father to the Boy."
At this meeting special music suitable for the occasion will be rendered.

Columbia Street Row
Aired in Police Court
On Tuesday night the arrest of a
man named Fred Payne opposite the
Central hotel by Constable Bad. was
the cause of an Incipient riot, and or
Thomas Rennle, a well known young,
citizen, appearing before Magistrate
Edmonds yesterday ln the police court
to face the more serious charge of
obstructing the police In tbe execution
of their duty.
Constable Bat. bad arrested Payne
on a charge of breaking a tram car
window, wben Rennle, who had been
drinking with Payne during the day,
Interfered and from a forcible verbal
remonstrance proceeded to more extreme measures and endeavored to
rescue blm from tbe custody. Both
men were ultimately secured and
brought to the police station in tbe
patrol wagon.
Yesterday Payne wa. fined $10 and
costs for being drunk and disorderly
and Rennle, after promising the
magistrate to abstain from drink In
future, allowed out on suspended sentence. The trial of Rennie was made
the occasion of a salutary homily to
tbe public on tbe duty of citizens towards the police when called upon for
assistance.
Plead. Not Guilty.
Fred     Payne,     electrical   worker,
was slightly under the influence- of
liquor, bnt not Incapable, ln saner
to further s-uestloni he admitted hs.
had been arraated before, but It waav
ln con.Brtsoa with labor troubles. Oaa
charge bad been Inciting, people to
riot
Chief Bradshaw -You frequently/ address people at street corners.
Accused denied the soft Impeachment.
Mr. Johnston���1 am going to any
something about the police afterwards.
For the defence Tom Rennle state*
that he aaw no reason for PayneTe
arrest and questioned the con-rtaasa
about it with the ultimate result that
be waa grabbed by Constable Burrows
himself nnd taken to the station. Ha
would not call Payne drunk, nor did.
ba think tbere wa. any disturbance.
Examined by the magistrate the-
wltnaas gave a list of the saloon, he-
had visited and the number of drinks,
he bad riegot'-sted.
P.oy Pearaon *ave exculpatory evidence. According to him accused wae-
more capable of taking care cf hint-
self than either be or P.ennie.
P. C. Baas, recalK-d stated accnae-*
was nsiug very bad indecent language.
Fie also said "You can use the th!r4
pleaded not guilty to the charge of {degree methods, but I will never telt
being drunk and disorderly and was
defended by Mr. Adam S. Johnston.
P. C. Bass stated that from Information given him regarding tbo
smashing of a car window, he satisfied himself Payne was the offender
and questioned him as to the fact.
Payne refused Information and became abusive. He resisted arrest for
a time and then gave in. He was in
a state ot drunkenness.
Crofo-examlned, the constable said
he was not incapable, but was drunk.
Detective Burrows, who went to the
assistance of Bass, gave evidence as
to tbe   crowd   which   had   gathered
you where the Bank of Montreal

me."
Mr. Johnston���There is an   undercurrent under thi. arrest.
After some further evidence Iron*
Payne as to hia dress Mr. Johns-tonr
addreased the bench. He repeated hi*
statement about the undercurrent and
minimized the whole affair. He claimed the police had discriminated
against hte client ln arresting him.
Satisfied of Guilt
The magistrate said he wa. satisBed
accused waa guilty. If the police overlooked worse esse, tbat might be
around, shouting and making a noise. I reason for reproaching the police, tat
Payne wa. intoxicated.
Cross-examined, the detective knew

COURTESY AND THE PRESS.
The Native Sons' ball is now a thing of the past, but
in answer to many inquiries and anonymous communications as to why no report of this annual social event appeared either in The News or in any of the papers upon
.the lower mainland, we desire to set our position clearly
before our readers.
Many of them have doubtless guessed the reason
aright, but, for the sake of those who may be unacquainted
-with the ethics of the press, we would here state that the
usual courtesies extended to the papers of New Westminster and Vancouver were in this instance conspicuous by
their absence
When any event of public interest takes place it is
customary to invite the press to be represented thereat.
Invitations are sent to the paper itself and not to individual members of its staff. The man to whom the work of
reporting the event is assigned may or not have other assignments also which need his attention. In any event he
is there at work,
vci*b3 will not help an engineer to design a bridge or a doctor to prescrlbs,

rection of affairs naturally omit to invite press represen
tatives to be in attendance.   In the case of the recent ball
this seems to have been the policy pursued.
From the enquiries made at this office alone we
gather that this course is unusual. The press of New
Westminster is desirous of co-operating in all that affects
either the welfare of the city or the daily life of its people,
but when its co-operation is either ignored or refused
there remains only one course to pursue.

to one Johnny Bale, a Mumbles boatman, who ls said to have gone to the
cave to rub some red paint on a brush

UNVEIL TABLET TO
HEROES OF NORTH
Memento of Fitzgerald and Comp-n
Ions at Regina Serve. .. Inspiration to R. N. W. M. P.
Regina, Feb. 6.���Carefully guarded
In the vault at the headquarters of
the Northwest Mounted 1'olice hero,
the will ot the late Inspector Fitzgerald, of thu Northwest Mounted Police,
written lu letters of blood on a scrap
of bark, remains tho moat striking
memento of that fateful trip from Fort
Mcl'herson to Dawson lust about two
yeara ago, when four brave men laid
down their lives to'malntaln tbe proud
record ot the force and carry on it'n
splendid work of rolling up the map
of Anglo-Saxon conquest and civilization a thousand .miles northward.
The last to die of that fated band,
the gallant Inspector, as hi. life was
ebbing away, thought ot his aged
mother and his last wlll and testa
ment scratched with a twig dipped ln
hi. own life fluid, bequeathing her bit
worldly goods, was found by his Bide.
Many men have given up their lives
In tho service of Canada's great force,
but none more herocially than inspector Fitzgerald and his party. Tbe
memory of their exploit will ever be
green to those whose hearts thrill at
the doing of brave deeds, and the
name, of Inspector Fitzgerald and
Constables Kenny, Taylor and Carter
will be enrolled high up ln the list
of tbose wbo have sacrificed themselves In the building up of a new empire in the farthest Northwest.
Uncomplainingly and wltb a full realization of the dangers tbey faced
they started on the thousand-mile Journey ln the depth of winter, suffering
tho greatest tortures from cold, exposure and starvation, until death
came to their relief. For theee reasons they need no other memorial, but
quite fittingly their comrades decided
on some recognition which should
serve to keep fresh the inspiration
from tbe undying heroism of these
men.
Only a few days ago a large brass
tablet recording the fate of the otricer
and constables waB unveiled by Lieut.
Governor Brown, of Saskatchewan, ln
the commissioner's office at Iteglua,
where It will be pointed out to new
members of the force bb an evidence
of the spirit which pervades thc organization.
There waa a large attendance when
the tablet was unveiled wltb appropriate ceremony, and Into tbe eyes of
hard men of tbe plains, who bad
known Inspector Fitzgerald' and hiB
comrades for what they were worth,
there came a suspicious moisture, of
whicb they seemed not ashamed.

Washington, Feb. 5.���Brlgadler-Oen-
eral Clarence R. Edwards, U.S.A., has
a new answer to the ancient arithmetical problem of American schoolboys
hiHrd on the premise that one: American could lick from three to stx redcoats. According to General Kdwards
the promise Is all wrong and "Tommy rot" is the real answer.
General ICd wards I. ib command of

"School histories are to blame fo.
i false Idea about military affairs lu
this country," said Oeneral Edwards
"This accounts for the unprepared
ness of the army to meet a sudden
emergency."
111. remarks were addressed to a
group ot army officers and newspapermen who were discussing the need
of a consistent military policy for
the United State.. It was pointed cut
tbat tbe army was scattered in such
x way that no tactical unit existed
for drills and manoeuvres and tbere
waa uo trained reserve to quickly expand the regular military or.-anUa

And so on- through all the wars.
There never was bucIi rot put Into
tlie form of history. Our fighting In
those wars was pitiable, and the con

with one or two exceptions, was dls

"We were beaten ln every battb:

and a soldier's life; they have to leari
to shoot and they have to match and
take care of themselves. In short It
take, a long time and constant work
.o make new troops effective soldiers.
At the beginning of all our wars
the untrained troops have always pro;
Ineffective and inefficient, and yet our
school histories haye becn Issued year
after year, teaching the youth of the
land the falsehood that we can lick
all creation; that one American Is
equal to half a dozen men, and so on.
until our people are imbued* with the
idea that all tbey ueed to do In case
of war I. to send for the men In uniform with guns In their hands and
our toes will crumble before them.
It 1. time that thi* false Impression
wa. corrected, and that' the people
became Informed of the true state of
our unpreparedness for war or an emergency requiring any extended use

English Militant Suffragette Who Has
Been Visiting In Canada on a
Mission Connected With the Suffrage Agitation Likes Canada, But
Suggests That We Have Much to
Loarn.
Miss Wylie, the English militant
suffragette, who has been touring Canada addressing suffragette meeting*!
and endeavoring to place the causo
before the women ot this country, is
a very able and eloquent speaker. She
has visited Toronto, Ottawa and
Montreal and the principal cities of
the east before returning to England.
Miss Wylie is a handsome type of
an intellectual woman, keen and
bright snd good-looking and quite sty!
ish- in appearance. She is the-very
opposite from the Amazonian individual that one would naturally expect
to see when her record is taken into
account. She has served two terms
in English prisons and has several
limes beep, foremost in riotous attacks
on English Cabinet Ministers and vigorously defends the methods of the
militant suffragettes of Fngland. Few
people in this country felt disposed
to sympathize with those women in
their ngaressive methods but after
listening to the explanations of Miss
Wylie and her eloquent defence of
them almost every reasonable person
now admit that there is certainly
much to be said in favor of the mili-
t.i-t methods.
Miss Wy'.ie's style of speaking is
most winning. She possesses a beau-
li.'ul, well modulated voice, a fluent
delivery and is evidently deeply read
and I'horoujh conversant with public
mutters in F.nglish political life. Her
delivery is of tlie pleasing, natural
extempore style and no heckling r.r
rr'-ss-que-tioriin*; has the least effect
In disturbing her.   To every comment

or t-uestion she at once h:uj a sharp,
pointed reply that almost invariably
wins the sympathy and applause Df
her audience and even her most bitter
opponents can not fail to admire the
skill and ability with which she argues the suffragette cause. She wears
as ornaments two silver decorations
which indicate her suffering for the
militant cause. One is a gate of prison bars with chains symbolic of
imprisonment and martyrdom aid the
other is a small brass tag with the
word "Holloway." the English jail in
which she was twice imprisoned, and
on these tags are the numbers of
the cells she occupied while ill prison.
Mis�� Wylie has eapressed herself as
well pleased on the whole with her
reception in Canada and has found
consderable interest taken in the
English suffragette crusade, but she
considers that there is yet much educative work to be done in this country. In England site says women Bee

Detroit, Feb. 5.���John McCarthy,
the sturdy smithy who, with his large
and sinewy hands shoes horses at his
forge at John R. street and Hiiltiinore
avenue, has a high opinion ot the sagacity of the black horse owned by
E. W. Putnam, 1466 Woodward avenue.
John was busy Friday morning
squeezing the wind out a large bellows and singing as he squeezed, when
he was startled out of hie song and
his composure by a pawing and loud
noise that came from the direction of
the front door. Dropping his work
he went to the door to investigate.
A beautiful black horse, his satiny
coat glistening In the fog of the early
morning, stood at lhe threshold begging admittance. When invited In he
walked calmly to the shoeing stall,
beld up his left hind foot and patiently
watted.
McCarthy, curious to know the reason of the action, examined the hoof,

"The Moose team are all right, but

This, however, haB yet to" be corroborated by tbe league executive, for
before the game bad started a protest
was made by tbe Moose captain to
President Lynch, of the amateur
league, who has called a meeting to
tlirisli out the matter.
Whether the protest Is sustained or
not the tact remains that the two
teams disbed out to the tans an excellent brand of hockey considering
that this was the flrst game played
In the local arena, and what cared
the crowd whether tbere were ringer*

was staged.
The showing made by the Bur-

progress of tlie hockey practices, as
It was considered on all sides that

a minor poet to write the invitation,
for lt is a marvel of entrancing
language. Here Ib a passage calculated to make everybody long for a
few days in that dear old Stockholm:
'A real winter day in Stockholm
Is not less beautiful than the glory
of the summertime, when the Olympic
games were held.
"Tbs*r*un shines over Uto snow-
covcred landscape and the many Ice-
bo-i'nrl streams; on mountain slopes
and along the few rossts In the. neighborhood of the city there move crowdk
of ski-runners, young and old, rosy-
cheeked young ladles by no means ln
the minority; here we see horsemen
enjoying a winter bunt; there, a
merry sleighing party. The Ice-covered lakes and bays are dotted with
skaters and with those who are en-
Joying sailing on skates, ice yachting
or bandy."
Yes. the last word la bandy, and
the Merg-man will kindly leave the
"r" key alone.
As an added Inducement to visitors, the program adds tbat there
will be many "fashionable gatherings," at which "members of the
royal family are often present"
every phase of industry ln Canada,
both ln winter and Bummer, will be
taken this year. In London a warm
response has been made by those who
realize the Immense value of such a
movement.
Apart, however, from anything else
there Is urgent need that the cinematograph should be more fully utilized
to illustrate life in Canada. In no better way could tbe misconception concerning the Dominion be removed, or
the daily life on tbe farm and tn the
city be more attractively presented.

themselves one will catch a glimpse
ot tbe operator of another machine

Ttie sapphire and the ruby of human manufacture are everywhere.
They are being "created" in the laboratories of the Paris chemists at tlie
rate of about seven million carats a
year. So nearly do they resemble the
gems which nature requires centuries
to produce that the expert alone can
distinguish the real stone Irom that
of laboratory origin. The average
jeweler who ha.-* himself had little experience in handling these gems cannot tell tlie difference-. He must take
Uie expert's word that the stones he
buys ure genuine.
The troab.e grows seri'ius, especially in Europf. The buyer ol a synthetic rubyir sapphire may go through

than a youth, he undertook the responsibilities of a general, for he
commanded the left wing ol the Bul-
garian army at 'he battle of Slivnit-
ta. He issued from this stringent
test with flying colors, and it naturally followed that whin a few years
later Stambouloff required a man tj
rcorganizD the Bulgarian army the
choice should fall on* Savoff. As a
reformer Savofl met with the greatest
success, and in a few years he brought
into being a military force that fulfilled all modern requirements. Further confidence was shown in him
when he was made h"ad of the Military Academy in Sofia, where the
duty devolved on him ot training
future leaders. The officers who have
lotetly been leading tluir men from
victory to victory have for the most
part been trained under thc eye of
Savoff.
For a time General Savoff dropped
out of public life, but in 1902 he resumed his former post of war minister, and entered on five years of brilliant administration, lha r.sulls of
which have been evident during the
past few weeks. It was due to Savofl
that the military aet of 1904 was

the   Toothsome   Little   Fish   Is
Taken In Fund,*.
The sardine is a frequent article of
diet upon Canadian table., and"-h >w-
ever much its llavor and handino-s
are appreciated but little is generally
known ot the processes through which
it passes belore ita appearance in the
grocery.
The true sardine (Clupca sardina) i��
a small fish of the Mediterranean
and derives its name from the island
'of Sardinia. This is the sardine put
up in France. The sardine peeked in
Canada, the United States and Norway ara the young of the herring
(Clupea harengus), from live t) seven
inches in length.
These young herring come in on the
coast ot the Bay of Eundy in immense
schools from June to October. Tliey
are caught in weirs (pr-uounced
"ware" among the fishermen of New
Brunswick). The weir is a large, hoop-
shaped enclosure of stakes, bruih and
net, far enough out from shore si
that at low tide (and the tide in the
Bay of Fundy rises and falls some
twenty-eight feet) there will be Irom
four to ten feet of water in it. A Icnoe
of stakes and brush known as tha
"lead" runs out Irom the shore to
the gate of the weir.
The young herring coming in from
the sea keep close to the shore. Striking the lead they will not swim between the brush, of which it is composed, but swim along it into ths
mouth of the weir. The man who is
running a weir lives close to it during the season, and as the fish till
into a weir on the high tide he inspects his weir each high tide, nud if
he finds fish in it he dree, the net
over the gate. Usually the fish come
in it he drops the net over the gale.
Usually tbe fish come in ou a night
high tide. At low tide thc weir is
seined. A sein is a long net deep
enough to reach the bottom of the
weir, with weights at the bottom iud
floats at the top. This net is stretched
round the circumference of the inside
of the weir by a man in s boat, then
gradually drawn in until the tl-tli are
gathered into a practically solid masj.
Then tho fish are dipped cut by a
huge dip-net with a long hag. Tba
hoop of the net is placed in the host
and the hag pulled in hand over
hand, loading the lish into the boat.

of sardine which sometime, run int:

'' heads, each holding four barrels, have
been taken out at one time. From
litleen t.> thirty hogsheads is consid
ered a fair catch, and anything over
two hog.heada as wortli -H-ining lor.
The price paid to the i.wier i f Lhe
weir varies from J.'l to I'M per h'-gi-
head, according to the abundance or
scarcity of .--inline.
On arrival at the factory the lish ara
i hoisted trom the hold to the d K-k and
| are sent down a s'jiice. Here they sr��
deposited in brine tanks. From tin's.'
tanks they go through the fluking ma
chine, which raises them to the next
floor and arranges them in a Isyci

THE  MODERN  WOMAN.
Held 'n Respect and So-netlmei Dread
by Deep Sea'Fiihermen.
The deep sea fisliermen of the old
choo", the m'*n who still have a
scornful contempt for steam, posses-
a deep dread, no! immersed with respect, for nil gulls. "Gulls ain't
ord'ny birds," they will tell you, "for
ain't yee heard tell where the souls o'
wicked sai'.ormen go? Ay? When
they  have  to  work out the years of
sorrow for their sinin' They
���itill follow the sea. but not as "tends
uli ,iird a drifter or belore thc mast.
. . . No, b'ys; their souls go into
gulls till they're kinder fleased o'
sin. Alius treat gulls kindly; ye
dunno, mebbe 'tis an oV watchmste,
or a hand ye've pulled double wi',
times past countin'."
The r stless curlews have a bad
nam: everywhere. They are seldom
seen but on the ving, ond their eternal flight lips given rise to a belief in
their possible cinn:ction with the
Evil One. On th? northeast coast
they n.e called Wandering Jews, as.
according to tradition, they carry the
sou!s of th.* Jews who connived at the
Crucifixion and are doomed always to
wander. In Wa'.es they have a much
pre-tl* r explanation of thc curlew's
restlessness. Bt. liucno. who lived at
Clynnog, was in the habit ot walking
acrc-ss to the Isle ot Anglesey' to
preach every Sunday. One day in a
tcmp.-*t he was unfortunate enough to
lose his book ol sermons, but a curlew
noting his distress went back in
search and was able to restore them
to '.I.e saint. In his gratitude St.
Bueno took the little long-billed bird
under his especial care for erer, and,
look as ybtt will, you can never find
tho nest of a curlew pr see it except
in feeding or flight, for it is under the
protection of the saint and is preserved from harm. It ia only along
the Welsh coast, though, that they
are welcome; in the old ballads.tbey
are called the Seven Whistlers end
their pasting foreboded disaster, and
now the women folk along the seaboard villages look-Anxiously seaward
as the flights go over with their eerie
cry.
The sober-colored cormorants. thoSt
quaint, greedy little birds thst sit like
wooden images in long rows along the
outlying rocks, do not come under the
general ban of sea birds. The average
gull is a stupid bird, but the eorraor
ant has an uncanny intelligence, and
the longshoremen spinning tor mackerel or pollock, or laying his long
lines st the ebb, likes to see them
feeding amongst the weeds or swimming with their heads just above the
water like the periscope' oi a submarine. He carefully avoids Bearing
them,* tor where -they feed is "brit,"
and "brit" is good feeding for large
fish as well as cormorants.- With this
exception, there is only one other bird
that is treated with any real regard,
and that is the diver. Amongst northern fishermen, especially Norwegians,
the diver is welcomed  with   almost

Thousands of Russian

In an interview, Mr. Price said:
"When I crossed the frontier Into
Persia I visited a Khurdlsh chief, and
found that he had stolen 50,000 sheep
from the Turkish side in the spring
of 1911. Since then he had been via
lted by Russian agents and presented
with a Russian military decoration.
It waa evident to me tbat these
Khurdlsh chiefs, who have been giving aueh annoyance to tbe Turkish
authorities, had in many cases beea
taken directly under the wing of Russian agents.
Then  Arrested.
"I waa more than Justified in this
Idea when I arrived at the Persian
town of Khol. As I waa walking ln
the bazaar, accompanied by two Persian gendarmes, lent to me by the
governor, I was suddenly arrested by
four Cossacks.
i My gendarme guard fled, so I was
at the mercy of the Russians. They
told me that Russian martial law had
been declared ln that part of Persia,
and tbat they had orders to arrest
foreigners.
"I was marched two miles out of
the town, and noticed a camp of at
least 2000 Russian troops. There I
had a long argument with a Russian
diplomatic agent.

"I was released after several hourj

Tha Black Fox.
In no way except in or lor does the
black fox differ from the red fox,
whose pelt sells for about $2, or from
the gray fox, whose winter cost is
valued at Irom $150 to (400, but when.
ever a hunter can secure a black fox
and remove its skin without marring
the fur he is sure ot receiving from
$800 to 1.600 for his trophy. Not only
it every black lox pelt bought as soon
ss taken, but * doz-n Russian noblemen have pai I agents traveling in
North America all through the winter
seeking out remote hillside farms
and abandoned logging camps where
it is possible that a shy and elusive
black fox may have been seen.
Forbearance of Pericles.
Once, alter bein-* reviled ond ill
spoken of all day long in his own
hearing by some vile and abandoned
fellow in the open market place,
where he was engaged in the dispatch
of some ut-gent affair, he continued
his business in perfect silence and in
Ihe evening returned home composedly, the man still dog-ring him at the
heels and pelting him all the way with
abuse and foul language; and, stepping into his house, it being by this
time dark, he ordered one oi his ser-
vants to take a light and to go along
with the man and see him safe home.
-Plutarch.
At That.
To illustrate that the word "that"
could properly appear in a sentence
six consecutive times and still make
correct English, this instance is related:
A boy wrote on the blackboard,
"The man  that lies doe* wrong."
The teacher objecting to the word
"that," tlie word "who" was substituted. Alter school one of the older
scholars slyly wrote this sentence underneath the first:
"And yet it must appear to the
reader for all that, that that 'that'
'hit that teacher objected to was all
right, at that,"

Her Gift.
A Lancashire vicar was asked by
the choir to tfall upon old Betty, who
was deaf, but who insisted in joining
in thc solo of the anthem, an' to oek
her only to sing in the hymns. He
shouted into her ear, "Betty, I've been
requ.-stcd to speak to you about your
singing." At last she caught the word
"singing" and replied: "Not to mo

sign that the Russian military occupation will ceaae. I estimated about
10,000 Russian troops In the Azerbljan

"The effort of this occupation on
the Turko-Perslan frontier, Is to reduce tbe Persian governors to mere
puppets In the hands of the Russian
military authorities, and. If lt continues, lt will not be too much to Bay
that the Russian frontier haa been
shifted 100 miles south ot Mount

"Tbe situation In Tabriz showed the

Price. "Last summer the Tlpadar

from raising thla loan, and have commandeered half the transport for their
troops.
"In this way the Persian government is being strangled, and there ap-
Russian troops marching towards the' pears to be a total disregard of the
Turkish frontier. I have Information j Anglo-Russian convention by the selt-
which leads me to believe tbat these appointed Russian autocrats ln this
were the very troops stated by Sir part of Persia."

Newspapers vs. Circulars
Which Is Best ?
Have you, Mr. Business Man, thoroughly studied out
the relative values of the two advertising mediums-
newspapers and circulars?
If you have tried both you know that one lot of circulars will cost you far more for printing and distributing
than an advertisement of equal size published in a daily
paper.
The extra cost of circulars, however, would not matter if proportionate results were secured from their use.
But thaf s the question.
How many copies of The News distributed to the
houses in New Westminster and district are not taken in
and read by everyone in the household? Not one-quarter
of one per cent
How many circulars are taken into the homes and
read by the members of the family who are buyers? Not
10 percent
If you doubt this statement go around some morning
after a bunch of circulars have been distributed and Me
bow many are left lying in the yard, lacked into the gutter or blown about the street f->.
People wdnme the daily paper. The circular is
looked upon as a nuisance by many, particularly those
who have to dean up the litter they make on the lawns.

In  The Courts
A horse warranty case occupied
Judge Howay's attention yesterday in
the county court. The circumstances
were that Willam Green, farmer, Agassis-, bought a horse from H. H. Nal-
smith, another farmer, for $260, on
the terms of $160 cash and $100 by
promissory note. The horse was guaranteed docile, whereas Green alleged
that he found later on she was a
kicker. Whereupon he sued for a
return of the note and damages for
breach of warranty. Alternatively he
claimed a rescission of the contract
of purchase and sale and a return of
the purchase money and promissory
note.
One of the* features of the procedure was that the plaintiff got judgment by default against the defendant but having failed to give due legal
notice of the move, the Judgment was
afterwards set aside. Yesterday tlio [
plaintiff thought it advisable to discontinue the action and Judgment was
entered for the defendants with costs,
���both on the setting aside of the first
Judgment by default, and yesterday's
proceedings.
Counsel tor plaintiff, Mr. Lucas of
Vancouver; counsel for the defendant,

It is estimated that
65 p.c. of the value of
estates left to private
executors is either lost
through dishonesty or
through lack of financial knowledge.
Trust Company literature frequently asserts that not one dollar of estates in the
hands of trust companies has ever been lost.
The assertion has never
been contradicted.
If this Company has
not already been named
in your Will as executor, the omission should
be remedied without
delay.

Boya Ara Sentenced.
E. Q. Cairns and Victor Cairns, two
young men of the city, who pleaded
guilty to charges of embezzlement
some time ago, in the police court and
upon whom sentence was deferred,
came up before Magistrate Edmonds
yesterday morning, to hear their punishment.
Mr. J. R. Grant of Corbould, Grant
& MeColl, who conducted the private
prosecution ot accused, at the instance
of their employers, a real estate firm
in town, stated that restitution had
been made and that his instructions
were not to press for sentence, bo far
as his clients were concerned. Up to
about October or November last the
conduct ot the prisoners had been
good . After tbat time it was supposed they engaged lu a gambling
transaction. They were not confirmed
criminals and he hoped tbey might
be given a chance to turn out decent
men in future.
Mr. A. 8. Johnston for the defence,
called a couple of witnesses who testified, generally, to tbe previous good
character of the accused.
Mr. Johnston asked for a penalty
that would be a corrective rather than
the imposition of a term of imprisonment.   *
The magistrate said that the law-
did not empower him to Impose a fine
In lieu of Imprisonment, but only to
tmpope a fine lo addition to imprisonment. How long had these men
been In Jail, be asked.
Chief Bradshaw���Eleven days.
The magistrate eald tbe accused
Were fortunate in having been detected before the matter got beyond their
power and the power of their friends
to straighten out They were still
more fortunate in the prosecution taking such a lenient view of the case,
lit It had not becn for that position,
1 he would not for a moment think of
dealing as leniently aa be Intended to do. He agreed lt was their duty
to save men from becoming criminals. In the circumstances his worship said he would Inflict a penalty
of five days' Imprisonment and a $50
