advocating the construction ot local
navies of the overseas dominions,
they are criticizing him for his latest
deeuarutlon In regard to the matter.
That was the general tendency of
all the speeches made this afternoon I
nnd evening, tlie main purpose of
which seemed to bo to show that thc
Canadian premier and the first lord
of the admiralty had entered Into a
definite agreement Hint the Canadian
policy Is to be one of continuous contribution. . Liberal speakers said that
if this Is so, tho government should
make a statement as to what brought
about the alleged change In views of
the lord of tho ndmtralty.
Owing to the policy of silence which
Is being maintained to the right of
the speaker there has been no ministerial reply to the BBserttons of tho
opposition and no ono has yet come
to the defence of the British minister.
Strong Criticism.
Home of the strongest words of criticism of Mr. Churchill heard from the
he added.
What right has Mr. Churchill to
say Unit Warships cannot be built In
Canada when eminent British shipbuilding firms are ready under the
late government to establish their
yards nnd  build ships In Canada?"
"Moos Mr. Churchill dure to say that
In Canada there are not men equal
to those of Britain? That we have not
men  of trains and  ability?"
"Mr. Churchill Is Impregnated with
the idea that Canada is synonymous
with colonial, and that there Ib an In
fluenc.e out of the ordinary marking
Canadians because of that fact and be-
"aure we don't happen to be in the
centre of the empire."
"We will listen to his reasonable advice, but when a member of the llrilisli
government presumes to tender such
advice to the people of Canada as to
what he considers their capacity may
be, It Is the veriest Insult to thc people of Canada; nay, It Is an Insult to
tho people of all the overseas dominions"

To a city, as to any individual, health is the first consideration, and therefore we are sure that the council will
have the undivided and hearty support of every one \n\
Westminster in any proposal it may set on foot for the bet-1
ter regulation and supervision of matters affecting public
health.
_ Attention for the moment is diverted to the bad condition at the Eighth street cemetery, but Westminster is
row out of leading strings and the sooner it dons the habli-
ments of a grown up the better will it be for all concerned.
Recently a proposal to appoint a health inspector was
aired, and since that time it may be taken that the council
has had the whole matter of a perfecting of its health ma-!

OLD  AGE   PENSIONS.
II is a Btrange commentary on the
distribution of wealth in Canada that
die Dominion parliament should be
considering the establishment of an
���old age pension system. The necessity, however, does not really reflect
on this country, for, as we know, It
probably gives more opportunity to
all classes to provide for old age than
does any other country in the world.
The fault lies with those who will
viot, no matter what their opportunities, provide for the time when tliey
-can no longer work. The punishment
for their improvidence does not always fall on them alone but on the
wives and childlren dependent on
them. If the state were concerned
merely with wastrels themselves, the
problem would not be very difficult
of .solution.
But in thu first place not all those
who are in need of help are wastrels;
there are plenty of genuine cases
where ill-luck comes in to spoil all the
natural advantages man may possess.
Moreover, it is of paramount Importance to the slate to see that the tli11
dren even of wastrels are given a proper chance to develop Into efficient
��� .citizens. There is a quite clearly sub-
.s'antii* l oplnlou amongst reformers
thai anything like the Kngiish poor

No piece of advice that lbs physician enn give will bear ..ore frequent
repetition than the pithy sentence,
"Ureatho deeply." lt is a perfectly
simple rule of health, yet it it -constantly broken. There is no reason
why our lungs should not Jiave all
the fresh air they need lor thsll work.
The supply is unlimited, Hut in our
folly we refu��o to give them their
fair shure of it because we arc toj
lazy to remember to breathe deeply.
We go from day to day drawing in
little inadequate puds cl air, living
Irom hand to mouth, us it were, and
(lien we wonder why we feel tired ami
nervous, why our skin is sallow and
our eyes dull, why we catch oold easily und digest our food badly. When
things have come to this pa.s there
Is nothing fur it except to put ourselves at school and learn pnliently

There are two wnys to learn to

most ittsullieieiit bieutln r.i, it is a

lungs as a buby lenrns to use its feet
and hands. Hut remember that lessons in breathing will do no good if
the scholar thinks hu is absolved from
bis task except when he is in the
class.
A simpler method for those who
bave not time or opportunity for the
gymnasium is to turn life's daily routine  into a coutii.uous discipline  in

WHY NEWSPAPH1
ADVERTISING.
Effectiveness As a Medium-
Daily Home Confident
ir-- ;*
...... .
(From an address delivered by F. St. John Richards
for the Six-Point League, of New York, before the Convention of the Association of American Advertisers:)
We believe daily newspaper advertising to be pre-eminent because it is universal, prompt, flexible, effective
and economical.
By universal and prompt I mean that any desired selling story can be told in any town or city in any section of
the country in one day by use of the proper choice of daily
newspapers. Any individual in the towns and cities of
the selected territory who does not read some daily newspaper would not be of much Use to you or any other advertiser.
Flexible because selected classes in the desired territory can be reached by choosing such papers as directly
appeal to the kind of readers you need. You have no
fear of misdirected efforts.
Newspaper advertising is at all times under direct
control of the advertiser. It may be started tomorrow in
one town or everywhere. It may be stopped as quickly if
need arises. It is most effective when it is timely, and although that phase of it properly belongs to a consideration of proper use of newspapers, rather than a consideration of their value, I cannot resist the impulse to say that
no advertising medium offers such a favorable opportunity for timely advertising as the newspaper.
If a great fire destroys a town, advertisers of fireproof building material tell their story and point a mocal
in the same issue containing the news story; a story of a
bank robbery suggests surety company advertising; a hot
summer day with sunstrokes suggests cooling drinks,
while snow and sleet on the streets inspires the automobile
tire advertisers to tell us about wobbly treads, etc.
Now if it is admitted that daily newspapers are read
by everyone worth reaching and that an advertiser may
choose his readers in any desired territory by a judicious
choice of papers, in other words, if you reach them effectively.
Are you welcome visitors or do you force yourself upon them ?
When you advertise in newspapers, do not your readers invite you to come to see them and pay for the privilege of welcoming you ?
Do they not usher you into their homes and libraries
and dining rooms and introduce you to their wives and
children?
Can yo" find a more effective medium than the columns of the favorite daily newspaper?
Can you have a better introduction than that given
by a welcome daily visitor, friend, and confidant?
The effectiveness of all advertising is measured by
the confidence and belief inspired thereby. This introduction by a favorite daily newspaper invites the readers'
confidence for you.
Now as to economy. Newspaper space can be bought
at prices ranging from one cent to one-tenth of a cent per
line per thousand and lower. Probably one-fifth of a
cent would be a fair average. At the lower price a ten-
line advertisement would be carried to a thousand homes
for a cent. But low price does not in itself always mean
economy.
If the space bought for one-fifth of a cent were circulated in territory unsuited for any reason to the advertiser's needs or opportunities, that would be a high price.
Newspapers, however, allow the advertiser to select suitable territory, as we have seen, so that the circulation he
pays for is where he wants it, and the low cost thereby
becomes economical.
Now the most amazing thing about newspaper advertising is that its value is universally admitted, although
subconsciously in some cases. Even the most pronounced
advocate of some other medium will turn to the newspaper when he has some acute personal need, which brings
from him instinctive expression and immediate action.
Take the elementary needs of life. If you want a
cook, where do you advertise?
If you lose a valuable dog or your pocketbook, or in
any of the many emergencies where you must have quick
action, which of you would neglect the newspaper?
Is not your business need as important and as urgent
as these?
Is the principle different?
Gentlemen, two and two make four. That isn't new,
but its true.

But a representative came across
him yesterday, perhaps the last London! r to be engaged In this work. He
was vigorously "clapping" ln a field
near Ilford, and the crows rose from a
broad field like a flight of black aeroplanes.
Ilu is Willie Taylor, and ever since

the statement l.ally handed out last

Ihe Cornwall lacrosse team, that the
Coast appealed to him better than
any  place ou  lhe  globe,  there  might
he something to it.
From Victoria reports come to hand
that a professional lacrosse team for

Championship team for Victoria Bouie
years back is once more lu (he game

Victoria has three hockey Etars
available for lacrosse, these being

KHz and Maher met twice after that
and ln the last bout, held In Texas,
Poter was knocked out in- the first
round. Tbelr second afalr was a three
round exhibition In New York.
On that occasion Jim Kennedy, wbo
promoted the bout, telegraphed Maher
a proposition, offering him 20 per cent
of the gross receipts. The Irishman
who had so often came out at tbe
little ond of the horn in financial trans,
actions, decided to do a little thinking before he acepted the offer. After
Bcveral hours of labored mental research he wired Kennedy that ' be
spurned thin offer of 20 per cent of
the gross and that he wouldn't appear for a cent less than 25 per cent
of the net.
Kennedy fell over himself getting
to a telegraph office to accept this
proposal, and Peter never could get
it through his head why 25 per cent
of the net amounted to so much less
out the  15 minutes of play the B��V> than  if  he had  acepted  20 per cent
of the gross. "Begorra," said Peter,
sadly, "It's no rnorthal use to try to

today, March 12, 1892, waa one of the
queerest characters in ring history.
He lacked the business head which is

Peter was a native of the 6uld sod

Dublin when he begun fighting. He
was amateur middleweight champion
of Ireland when he was discovered
by Billy Madden, the American promoter and had also won the amateur
heavyweight title In England Madden wanted a man to meet the great
lohn L and he considered that Maher
might have a chance.

his find against Pits, then a middleweight, and they were matched to

New Regulations for
Fraser River Bridge
The Dominion department ot marine and fisheries has now Issued certain regulations governing the operation of the swing span of the railway
bridge across the Fraser river at
New Westminster.
These regulations represent the re-
Bult of an application made**at Vancouver last year before the board of
railways commissioners by the British Columbia Electric railway company and the Canadian Western Lumber Co., Ltd., for an order dlreotlng
that thc pivoted span In tho railway
bridge over tbe Fraser river be opened for the passage up or dowu the.
river of such ships, barges, boats or
oilier vessels as could not, by tbe
adoption of a hinge or similar device,
lower their smokestacks, funnels,
masts, flagstaffs, or other similar erections and push under the bridge
without thc pivotal span therof being
opened.
lt Ib ordered that the operation of
said bridge when the pivotal apan
thereof is closed.   ,
The failure to comply with thosi
regulations by any ship, barge, boal
or othor vessel after one warning by
the bridge superintendent, shall be a
sufficient cause for a refusal to open
the awing span for Ihe accommoda
tlon of such ship, barge, boat or othei
vessel; but captain or master of said
vessel may enter a protest ln writing
to the bridge superintendent, and this
protest shall be referred by lhe superintendent to the harbor master, and
tho superintendent and the harbor
master together shall, after hearing
the parties concerned, and within one
week from the date of the protest, ren
der n decision ami give direction!
concerning the matter of the protest
as ihey may deem fil; and until such
decision Ib given, or direction render
ed, tbe bridge tender shall open the
BWlng span for the purpose of allowing the said ship, barge, boat or other
vessel to pass through.
Notwithstanding anything in thesi
regulations   contained,   the   oporstloi
the pivotal or swing span of the railway bridge acrosB llie Fraser rlvor: of the swing span of this bridge ahall
at New Westminster shall be under at all times be under the control and

l'nrls, March 11 -There Ib much
mystery as to the Identity of a
wealthy Egyptian lady, believed to
be well-known in Russian society, who
has met a tragic fate ln a leadlug hotel
on the south bank of the Seine.
Every erfort is being made to keep
her name and antecedents secret.
From the few facts which have leaked out It appeared that the woman,
wbo is young and handsome, arrived
at the hotel with two maids, and took
a suite of rooms. She Beldom went
out, and did not receive any visitors.
The other morning, at about eeven
o'clock, a maid on entering her mis
tress's room, found her In bed In a
dying condition. She had shot herself In the abdomen with a revolver
and still clenched the weapon In her
band. She died a few hours later
without having regained consciousness.
A love romance is Bald to be associated with the tragedy. According
to rumor tho lady had fallen passionately In love with a French gentleman belonging to n well-known and
wealthy family. Recently he had to
return home, and after his departure
the lady became very depressed, ln
the hope of renewing the acquaintance
she came to Paris, and falling In her
object returned to her hotel and shot
herself.
The Wiser Way.
"Here In Kngland thc marriage of
a British diplomatist to a foreign woman Is more common than in any
other diplomatic service In the world
Yet, curiously enough, British dlplo
mats wlll themselves tell yon, as Indeed, will those of any other country.
that a member of a country's diplomatic service Is first and foremost
a representative of bis country, nnd
that It is wiser that he should marry
a woman of his own nationality.

Thorol, a town near Klow, carries
tbo banner for severe ordinances.
Here, as In many provincial towns,
boy pupils have been forbidden to go
walking with the girl students In the
town Btreets, but the Khorol board of
education followed this ordinance up
with an order prohibiting the teachers
also to be seen on tho Btreets In company with women, on tho ground that
they Bhould furnish an example of
proper conduct to their pupils.
At a high school party held at Khorol during the holidays the school authorities at midnight segregated the

the young men only when time enough

'    History  provides  many  precedents
for tbe handsome rewards which, we
>mny be sure, will be accorded  their;
; generals by the Balkan rtates.
|   The "triumphs," tbe highest honor
known to tho Romans, waa not lightly j
'given.   The victor must have attained
certain rank; the war, definitely con-1
eluded, must have effected the eaten-!
(ion of the state boundaries; at leant
5,(100 of the enemy  must have been i

Campbell Wae a Btlfklsr on the Most
Triflinc Pointe.
It is surprising how punctilious
some authors have been will, re-siiect j
even to the smallest detail <>f their
mi'iiuscripts. Dickens wa,< a perfect I
terror and would make enough fuss*
over an error of punctuation to drive
a poor "comp." out of his wits.
Tennyson, too, was most particular I
that not a comma Bhould be omitted
or misplaced, whilst his revisions
were nevi r finished. Perhaps the
greatest terror of the compositor was
Thomas Carlylc, for hc would cover
every square inch of vacant space
Iwth in the marjin and between the
lines with minute additions and
emendations��� and not once, but s
dozen times.
Victor Hugo was equally difficult
to please and satisfy. Ol one of his
famous works he made thc printers
supply no fewer than eleven successive revised proofs, and the last half
dozen were furnished in order to make
quite sure that the commas were in
their right places.
But perhaps Thomas Campbell, the
famous p<>et who wrote such stirring ;
masterpieces as "Hohenlinden," "The1
Battle of the Baltic," and "Ye Mart-
ners of Kngland," takes Uie cake ini
this respect. He was fastidious to |
a degree, which fart probably accounts
for the small quantity snd perfect
quality ol hia literary output. It is
said that bs once walked six miles to
lii- printers, ami six miles back, in
order to have a comma changed into
a semicolon '
But an equally cur ful and fastidious lit' rary workman owed u great im-
provemef.t in the opening line ol his
mosl famous poem to s printer. This
was Thomas Gray, whose "Elegy
Written in n Country Churchyard" is
probably th ��� best known poem in the
Kngiish language.
It-  lirst  line  rinds:
Tho curfew tolls the knell of parting
day;
, but when Gray sent it to the irrcss his
manuscript rend:
; The curlew tolls, the kne'.l of partini
day.
The thoughtful compositor did not
understand the word "tolls" as an
intransitive verb, so dropped lhe comma, thinking the poet had put it in
by mistake, ar 1 when Gray read tie'
line his sensitive ear nt one caiifrht
ils new, sustained melody, nnd he
adopted the compositor's correction.
Probably the most fastidious livini:
writer is the poet William Wstson.
His work bears the impress of extreme
enre, and, like Tennyson, bis revision
seems  never to be  done.
ANCIENT RIDDLES.
Simson  It Wat Who Propounded the
Oldest  One   Known.
The oldest riddle known is that one
asked by Samson in Judges xiv, 14-1?:
"Out of the enter came forth meat,
ond nut ot the strong cam,, tweet- \
i.ess." lt was naturally impossible
lor the guests at his wedding feast
to solve thc riddle, for it referred to
that very uncommon incident of the
bees making honey in the carcass of
a lion. The old translators used Uie
word m-at in Ihe Bense of food, its
real meaning in the seventeenth ecn-
tury. This riddle dated from possibly
1,000 years before the Christian eral
and is evidence of the very ancient ;
custom of telling riddles or asking
difficult  questions.
The riddle of the sphinx is so old I
that no .ne can give a real date for |
it, but it appears even in the latest
Oi books for awakening the curiosity
of children in this form: "What is
that which flrst goes on four legs,
then on two and then on three?" It
will bo remembered that the answer
is "Man," who firet crawls, then
walks and at last uses a cane or
crutch, and that the penalty of failure
to answer this riddle was that the
person bo failing Bhould be devoured
by the sphinx. When Oedipus answered the riddle correctly the sphinx
was changed into stone.
Another (anions Greek rid-lle, dating from 570 B.C., was that propound-
i ed by Cleobolus, one of the seven wise
j men oi Greece: "Who is this lather
I who has twice six sons? Those sons
' have thirty daughters apiece, parti-
I colored, having one cheek white and
' the other black. They never Bee
i each other's face nor live more than
. twenty-four hours."
The answer is Time, who has twelve
| months, his sons, with daughters of
1 thirty days, hall day and hall nijlit.
each dying ere the other is born. This
is the fairest ol all the old riddles,
lor ar.y one with a little thought can
guess it. The orientals are still very
fund of propounding riddles, nnd they
sit until all hours of the night trying
to  puzzle  one  another.
The way to construct a riddle is
to start from the answer and work
back tfj the most misleading suggestions, which st. 11 may he molded into
the real answer.

Moorflelds, where, u;*on one ooossion,
in the year 1716, a distinguished party (
were gathered together to witno-?s the
operation ol casting a large cannon.
A young foreigner, named Schlach.
who seems to have been almost an
entire stranger, but who was well acquainted with the details ot casting,
noticed that one of the moulds had
been insufficiently dr.ed. and warned
the moulders against using it. They
disregarded his advice, and when he
saw that he could ml prevail upon
them to desist, he immediately put
himself we'.l out of harm's way belore
the cannon was cost. A terrible explosion occurred when the molten nie
tal rushed into the wet mould, owiiu
to the sudden generation of steam thai
OOUld find DO outlet, and several per
sons were k.l'.cd and a large number
injured.
lt is said that search wa? made foi
the man whose predictions hnd been
so painfully verified, and that the
Government employed him  to advise
about the be9it mode ot preventing
su?.h accidents in future. The result
was that Moorftelds was given up a-
a Bite of a gun foundry altogether,
ami upon his advice the establishment
was removed to the Warren at Wool-
w idi.
Honors Are  Easy.
It has long beer, suspected in France
that there was a great deal of traffic
in d--oorations ami the arr^t recently :
of a man at Toulouse reveals a most j
elaborate system whereby any one possessing a lew francs can purchase the
much treasured ribbon and a certificate magnificently setting forth the
nature of the honor accorded the purchaser. Most of the recipients of these
decorations are foreigners and it would
appear that any one doing business
with the French republic who has the
price can have himself decorated.
A polios raid upon the premises of
the honors merchant led 'o the discovery of catalogues and pamphlets relating to the business, together with a
numlier of blank diplomas of honor.
An enormous eorrcs*[Kindenee was evidently carried on ard a large number
of worthies proudly carrying ribbons
in their buttonholes are beginning to
feel uncomfortable.
Democratic though the third republic proteases to be it grants no fewer
thun 05 different decorations and only
M of tho.se are genuine old creations,
most of them having lieen established
during the present regime. The Legion
ol Honor and the medal lor military
service are the most sought after but
lhe agricultural merit order and aea-
demlcal   decoration   are   also   highly
prised.
Lord Charles Beresford and a Testimonial For a New Sauce.
As an il'.ustrn'ion of th�� kindlinen
of his nature and willingness to help
a friend, Sir Henry Liny, in "More
Passages by the Way" tells a story
of Lord ChartCS Beresford which had
a somewhat amusing sequel. An old
acquaintance, retired trom Lhe Navy,
called ujhiii him one day. and said
that lie hud invented a sauce which
would make a fortune for them both.
Lord Charles, however, declined to
enter the sauce trade, but Baid "il a
specimen of the product were sent to
him he would taste it. and, if it were
| found agreeable, would write the inventor a letter of approval. The sauce
duly arrived, and was not had. Lord
Charles wrote u letter of moderate
!ton', stating that he had tried
the sauce and found it very good.
"The inventor hod hit upon what
he regarded ns a rather striking title,
and proceeded ti adverise it. Presently 'Trelnwney's Tickle' appeared
prominently in the advertisement
sheets of the papers, accompanied by
the following note, purporting to he
addressed to the proprietor: 'Sir, I
have tried your sauce, and find it
excels all others with which I nm
acquainted. I may say that a spoon-
ful of Trelnwney's Tickle mad" my
stomach laugh.���Yours faithfully,
Charles  Beresford.' "
Things have changed somewhat
sine., hut a story of the days when
I_ord Chares war, mnde a Lord of the
Admiralty in 1096 is significant of the
lackadaisical manner in which business at Hie Admiralty was at one
timi conducted. I/>rl Charles hns
himself thus described the incident.
"One morning," he said, "a clerk
came in w-ith a wet quill-pen und
said:��� .   ,f
" 'Good morning.   Will yuu sign the
i Est! .it.'- ts of th l year?'
"I said, 'What:-'
"He said, 'Will you sign the Estimates f��r tin year?'
' I said, 'My gi.od mnn, I have not
seen them.'
" 'Oh, well,' he said, shoving a
.itll ��� astern, 'the other Lords hav"
signed them. I will be very inconvenient if you don't.'
" 'I'm very sorry.' I snid. 'I'm afraid
I'm altogether inconvenient in this
place. Certainly, I sha'n't sign Esti-
mnl **s I've not seen.'
" 'I must go nnd tell the First
Lord,' said the horrified clerk.
"I assured him that I didn't care
a fv whom he told.
"Being at the time the Coal Lord.
I I knew the coal was not halt enough
| to supply  the  Fleet ns  it stood, ami
the  Fleet  wasn't  near    enough    the
I strength it ought to be.   So 1  flatly
refused  to  sign,  and   the   Estimates
were brought into the House without
my    signature.    The    omission    wa..
noted, and sn explanation demanded.
" 'Ren'.ly,' said the  First Lord, 'it
does not matter whether the Junior
Lord  signs  the  Estimates or not.' '
The   incident  blew  over,   but  Lord
Charles's conviction that things were
wrong   in   th"   Navy   was   so   deeply
rooted t'-.tit, after something less than
two years' experience at the Admiral,
ty.  he declined to shore  its  responsibility.

bolt of the door leading Into the bakery being drawn. There was a flash
of a lamp and two men walked past
a table beneath which he and two
constables  were  hiding.
"Then," continued the superintendent. "1 heard a voice which I resog-
nized as Gerrad's Baying 'come In here
there's Bomethlng better.' The two
men moved toward the mixing house.
There was another flash from the
lamp and Gerrard Baid: 'Hullo! Whal
are you doing here?' I Jumped up and
said: 'What are you doing here?' Gerrard replied:  'I'm goln home.' "
On the way out of the bakery Police-Constable Watts, one of the men
who had been ln hiding, noticed that
a sponge cake was dropped. Gerrard
Bald: "I did not drop it" and Watts

Mr. Russell very mucb.

If you were to be taken away
now, would It be easy for some
one else to ad minster your business and estate?
Probably not, and that is a
very good reason why you
should immediately make a Will
and appoint this Company Executor.
When the time comes to ad-
minster an estate, the average
man without experience hardly
knows where to start.
He apents time and money
learning, and even then regrets
the time taken from bis own
personal affairs.
Maybe the estate may require
a little money to finance for a
short period, and the average
man needs all his capital and
credit in bis own business.
How long would It take until
your business and investments
were badly disorganized or Involved If not carefully looked
after, or in the hands of oue
without the proper facilities.
It is Just these very troubles
experienced In so many cases
that led tbe requirement aud
formation  of Trust   Companies.
Tho Dominion Trust Company
has paid up capital and surplus
of J2.500.000.00.
Its business Ir to act as executor, and any other business it
does is quite as much a side line
to It as the handling of estateB
Ib to the private executor.
It has the knowledge, ability,
reliability, capital, energy, experience, to handle estatos in
the ablest possible manner.
That is the kind of executor you

It will lie well worth your

concerns you.

****************
Edmonds, March 11 Mr. Montgomery Beatty who was recently given the
post of stipendiary magistrate of Burnaby subject to his being created a
justice of the peace by the provincial
government, has received his appointment, from Victoria. He was sworn
In before Mr T. S. Annandale, J.P,
of New Westminster and has just officially taken over the duties of the office.
Mr. I). ('. Patterson is endeavoring
to interest u number of the prominent
citizens of Burnaby in the Imperial
Home Reunion association, a branch
Of which has heen established in Vancouver of which he and some other
Burnaby  people  are  members.
Since establishment the Vancouver
branch of the association has* extended  assistance  to  worthy  residents of
Burnaby In bringing their families out
from the old country, this despite the
fact that very little support is given
the association by local people.
Mr. Patterson holds that since the
advantages of the association are open
to the residents of Burnaby those citizens of the municipality well situated
financially should give It a greater
measure of support than at present
by becoming members.
