In view of the numberless accidents that have occurred throughout the province, by reason of carelessness
in the handling of weapons, we are glad to see that the
attorney general is to introduce a measure in parliament
making it an offence for anyone under the age of 18 to
possess revolvers, slingshots, knuckledusters and the like.
It is also provided that no weapons shall be sold to minors
and that all sales of such weapons shall be reported to the
We trust that if this measure becomes law, steps will
also be taken to enforce it. It would be of interest to
know how many persons in this city alone are possessed
of weapons capable of taking life, and perhaps more interesting to know how many are entitled to be in possession of them.
The revolver is the deadliest of all these instruments of
strife. The boy who will not toy with one if he finds it is a
scarce article, as is he who will not search about in unexpected places. The result of neglecting to lock these
weapons away safely is seen in the sorrowing homes that
are affected by the stories of accidental shootings which
almost every day appear in the press.
Many people keep revolvers for defensive purposes,

Gaibraith & Son vs. Paquette
& Corbin.
This was a caEe In which the plaintiffs, who are lumber manufacturers
in the city, sued defendants, also contractors in the city, for $180 for lumber supplied them to build a house.
Rudolph Corbin, one of the defendants, ordered the goods and then assigned the contract for the house to
Faquette, but gave no notice of the
assignment to Galbraith & Sons. Each
defendant practically Bald that the
other was responsible for the debts.
Judgment was given with costs
against Mr. Paquette, but his honor reserved Judgment ln regard to Mr.
In his ovldence Mr. Taquette created
some amusement In court by his statement that, whilst there was no partnership between him and Corbin at
the time when Corbin ordered the lumber, yet If the contract had prospered
they would have shared the profits.
Another naive admission was that one
of the reasonB why he would not pay
the bill was that he had lost enough
money on the contract already.

series of- questions aaked by Robert
Ersklne Ely. director of the loague.
Lillian Nordics gave a lecture on the
"Progress of Women" before the lea
gue for Political Education, which met
at the Hudson Theatre last night.
Although touching on ether phases
of the life of women who have taken
up the professions, Madame -Nordlca
dwelt longest on queries about women
of the stage, especially the operatic
stage, with which she. is most fami
iar. 1 i
"Women are not at a disadvantage
in opera." she'said, "Indeed, quite
the contrary. On the whole the public prefers to listen to the voices ot
women. Tell me what man has earned $8000 a performance, which We
paid to Pattl for concerts In Soutl-
Amerlca, or $5000 for a single appearance, which was paid to the same ar
tist ln this country?"
"And women of the stage," the diva
continued In answer to another question, "are on an equal footing wltb
men as they are In no other line of
work. In fact, women of the chorus
In opera work far harder than the
men. Although leas strong phvs'e.al
ly, tnanv rf them care for children
and do tbelr o-n hnesoworlc In addition to their singing."
Touching on the ireitnl st-itus of

Turning to other phases of the pub-

Posthumous Selfishness  Denounced-
Law May be Altered���Decline of
Mourning Everwhere.
I-ondon, Jan. 2.1.- The revolt of the
widow nnd the right of thu husband
to Interfero with his wife's freedom
to marry after his own death are
agglD attracting public attention. The
"old fashioned notion" that a woman
should remain faithful to the memory
of her firBt husband is now denounc
ed as mere pandering to a "posthumous selfishness."
This view is strongly supported by
the suffragettes, who threaten te -.--i
tate to repeal the law that enables
a man to 'penalize the second marriage of Ills widow.
The subject has become, topical and
controversial by reason of a remark
uble letter signed "A widow In ro
volt" which appeared In one of tin
'ead'iig London newspapers. It Ib
vorth reod'ns; in Hj entirety, which
s ni follows;
"May I call tho cttent'on cf yout
readers to the very awkward position
in which a widow may bo placed
through the way In which her money
has boen left her by her husband? 1
must admit that the matter Ib a personal one, but hundreds of others are
ln the same boat aB myself.
I don't know much about business
matters, but 1 do know that hitherto
I have enjoyod an Income of nearly
$6000 a year from money left on a
strict trust by my huBband. Now, 1
want to marry again, and If 1 do I
lose $5000 a year at once. Only $1000
remains to me; the rest will go to a
fortunos. The majority, however,
stick to the old argument namely, that
a man should tio up his money bo as
to protect his widow against the fortune-hunter.
In connection with this controversy
lt la interesting to note that mourning as It was formerly known ln England, is now scarcely worn at all. The
widow's cap is hardly ever seen, and
black crepe Is quite out of fashion.
Queen Alexandra In recollection of
King Edward is still using a very
broad black border on her notepaper,
but she is most exceptional. A well
known peer of ancient lineage quite
recently appeared at his club the
day after hla distinguished mother's
funeral wearing a blue flannel suit,
brown shoes and a tall hat, with a
comparatively narrow hatband. This
was not lack cf respect���he was well
known to be devoted to his mother-
but merely a characteristic indication
of how black clothes have ceased to
bo recognized as a sign of genuine
grief. Widowers, who formerly were
always expected to wear black trou-
acrB, never do bo now, except In very
rare instances. Children go to theatres three months after the death of
their parents, and the death of uny
relative more remote than a brother
or sister seems to Impose no restriction whatever.
Tills Blackness in not due to a relaxation of court etiquette but exists
and grown in spite of It.

Of Ont Victim to Despair���Bargemas

London, Jan. 23.���A remarkably gallant rescue ot a drowning woman

pausing only to throw off his great
coat, plunged after her, and reached
her as she was on the point ot sinking.
No boat was at hand, and Armstrong had a tremendous struggle to
get back to the shore with his burden.
At this point of the river there are
pits caused by the excavation of the
foundations of old London bridge. Several crocs-currents, caused by the
piers, also meet here, and form tbe
most powerful whirlpool ln tbe
Armstrong was swimming strooRly
with the woman, when he wag caught

granite buttress of the bridge. He

when he and the woman were dragged out, but he was almost exhausted.

New York, Jan. 23.���More than 70,-
���000 children, mostly under the ace of

Moody stirred members ot the New

-���Commission at its meeting yesterday.
"The Pacific Coast," he skid, "has
been the greatest divorce centre ot
the entire world. In the year 1912
alone there were granted ln the United States over 100,000 divorces.
In forty years 3,700,000 adnlts were
-separated by divorce, and more than
6,000,000 persons affected by these
cases. Illinois alone provided 120,.

California 60,000, and New York 4*,-
New York State, however, sent 18,-
189 of Its couples Into other states to
procure divorces, and there were probably many migratory cases that are
rot recorded ln this total. At present
90 per cent, of the oales go by default,

Person  to  Young  Lady.
. .i
Copenhagen, Jan. 23,���The world-
famed Danish' surgeon, Professor Rov-
���Ing. who early in 1912 visited America and delivered a number of lecture*, which attracted great attention,
has Just, reluctantly, made known a
wonderful -operation, a bone transplantation, which he has undertaken
with marvelous results.
The patient tn question Is a young
lady, a relative ot Professor Rovslng,
She has a swelling In the lower por
tlon ot the thigh bone, which under
ordinary treatment would necessitate
the amputation of the leg. The professor then decided to perform bone-
transplantation. The affected thigh
bone wa* removed, and pending the
opportunity of obtaining a fresh thigh
bone, Professor Rovslng in the meantime inserted an old bone to prevent
the muscles from contracting.
Bis weeks later a fresh thigh bone
waa secured by the amputation of the
leg ot another person. The Invalid's
leg was Rontgen-photographed so as to
ascertain whether there waa a fresh
swelling. This proved not .to be the
case. The temporary thigh bone was
then removed and the fresh thigh
bone, first having been made to fit,
wa* Inserted. The skin was then
sewn together.
At th* last examination tbe strange
thigh bone had almost grown together with the rest of the patient's
own thigh bone. The patient will be
able to walk, although the leg naturally will be a little stiff.

Coast Hockey Mogul Is Well Plessed
with Conditions In the N. H
Will Help Local Clubs.
The surprises which are being pulled off from time to time in tbe N. II.
A. are particularly pleasing to the
magnates of tbo Coast Hockey League
und the successive defeats of Ottawa
ls even more so. Right from the flrst
tip off the bat, in the hockey war between thc East on one side and the
Patricks on tbe other, events bave
placed tbe western teams lu a better
position than ever.
The defeat of Ottawa on Wednesday evening by the Tecumsehs was a
sore blow to the supporters of the
Senators, for without a winning team
tbe management will have a big financial deficit staring them in the face
when the accounting takes place tbls
Manager Patrick, who was In the
oily yesterday, was chuckling to him-
si if at the N. H. A. prospects and
figures he will bare an easier time
than "ever next season to pick out the
players he wants from the East and
forward them transportation to play
on thn coast.
In securing Kendall and Tay|or,
Patrick pulled off a big coup at the
expense of Ottawa and by the time
next fall rolls around be figures tnat
the -owners will tbink twice before-
paying the salaries they are thla season so that there will be some kicking among the players, many of whom
are just aching to make the trek out
to Hi iilhh Columbia.
Hockey out here on the coast despite Ihe delays attending the opening of tbe local rink is taking better
than ever among the fans. The Vancouver arena, 'tis true, has never yet
been, tilled, but that place holds something like ten thousand people and to
get a tenth of the population of Vancouver out to a game ln Its present
stage is out of the question. Over in
Victoria where they have a "beaut"
of a rink holding over 5000 spectators,
things are different. So far this season the ticket sale has ended hours
before  the  games  have  started  and \
Captain Thornagel Will Bs Unable to

Another skipper will have to be appointed to take the barquentlne Alta,

Captain Thornagel, who was ln command before the vessel teft the Pacific
coast on her previous trip to the Antipodes, fell sick at San Francisco
and was laid up In the hospital In the
California City several months.
When the American boat arrived In
the Fraser some weeks ago, Captain
Thornagel came north apparently tn
good health and was prepared to again
take command bnt during the past few
days his old complaint set in again
and he was forced to return to San
Francisco where he will again enter
a hospital.
Captain Winters, who brought the
vessel up the river will likely take
over the command vacated by her former skipper.

The Canadian Bank of Commerce
has amplified Its annual report on the
business conditions of tbe country by
publishing ln book form a comprehensive review for the year 1912.
The Dominion Is taken up under
four separate heads. The Maritime
provinces are dealt with by the Hall-
tax manager ot the bank; the province of Quebec by the Montreal manager; the province of Ontario by the
assistant general manager; Saskatchewan, Alberta and the western territory by the superintendent of the
central western branchea; and British
Columbia and the Yukou by the super
lntcndent for tbe Pacltlc coast.
Affairs ln the United States, Mexico
aad Great Britain are reviewed by
officials of the bank resident In tnose
In British Columbia tbe prosperity
of the past few years has continued
without showing signs of abatement.
Tbe satisfactory conditions may be
ascribed somewhat to the railway con
stfuction which is in progress and
which Ib likely to continue for some
few years to come, but there has been
a steady Influx of population, a continuance of which it Seems reasonable
to expect.
Prices of real estate have in many
cases increased, and have In every
direction been fairly maintained. In
Vancouver the record figure of $600u
per front foot was recently paid for a
prominent corner on one of the two
principal streets, and In Victoria
prices have also steadily advanced.
The development of Vancouver
Island ls progressing rapidly, and
new localities are being exploited as a

continues without cessation, and    we

Probably few of our industries have
occupied so much attention on thc

London, Ja.i. 23.���An amusing comedy arising from official precautions
In Russia In connection with telegraphed messages ls related by the
London Standard correspondent at St.
Petersburg. -r
Telegraph employees were ordered
to exercise special care ln receiving
telegrams containing ambiguous words
or phrases that might be suspected to
take the place of a code. This resulted In one Instance In a hot dlapute between a young woman of high degree
and an employee.
There lay on the counter an apparently harmless note from the
young woman to her husband. It fin-
ingished with the rather conventional
ending, "10,000 X."
But tbe official held the message up
and asked what was meant.
'"Kisses!"  said  the  young  woman.
"Uut how are we to be sure?" asked the man. "It may mean bombs or
even forbidden books. We cannot accept cipher messagea, and we must be
quite certain that the senders of tele-
grama really mean literally what they
And as the official was not at all
sure of the literal accuracy of the
"10,000 X," that part of the message
was ultimately suppressed."

Municipal  Architect   Objects to
Kaiser's Orders���Amusing  Artistic Feud.
Huge Hanger to be Built In Ke'.igolind
to Accomodate Naval Craft���
Bomb Proof.
Berlin, Jan. 23.���Kaiser Wilhelm II.
Iiuh a new load on his shoulders. The
load Is Potsdam. For years past this
has exlBted ln the form of quarrels
with Potsdam's municipality, resentment at Potsdam's socialization, and
annoyance at the way in which the
town fathers neglect Potsdam's pavements.
HIb latest trouble Is ln connection
with Potsdam as a centre of antiquities. Potsdam Is not a very venerable city, but tt is old compared with
Berlin, and Wilhelm Is very keen that
Its eighteenth century character
-should be preserved.
Other people are not. Tbey want
for business reasons to knock down
the Krederlcan one-story stucco
houses, and put up tour-storied business houses Instead. In modest Potsdam a four-storied house is regarded
as a fifty-story sky-scraper ln New
York, and people talk about lt keeping out the sun, and causing draughts
In the streets. And Its artistic effects are fatal. At least so says
Kaiser Wilhelm.
In the Wllbelmplat-i and Bassln-
lilat/., there are some rows of very low
Krederlcan houses which Wilhelm II.
-finds have a delightfully antique air.
He regards them as ecastatlcally as
Parisians regard Notre Dame.
An enterprising Herr Ooebeler lately j *
bought three of these houses, and proposed to transfer to tbe Bassinplatz
his ugly carpet and curtain store. He
wanted to put up onl) .. three-storied
store with big windows on what he
called "American" lines. The Potsdam municipal architect wbo bas to
pass all building designs, said "no."
' Wins Case From Kaiser.
Herr Goebeler suspected that this
prohibition came from Kaiser Wilhelm and raised the question of the
municipal architect's powers In the
law courts. He has Just won his case.
He is going to put up his three-Btory
carpet store, and thus ruin the square.
The next trouble which Kaiser Wilhelm haB had Is in connection with
the statutes In the Uustgarten park.
The I.ustgnrten runa along the havel
ln front of the old town palace where
l-'reilerlck the Great first lived. The
I.ut:t-L-.is.rtcn has a colonnade, fountains,
and statues which go back to the
early eighteenth century. The park
Is in charge of Potsdam municipality,

Germany Ib about to erect at Heligoland a wonderful station for naval airships.
There is a deep hollow on the island
of Heligoland called Sapskuhle, ln
which it is proposed to build a huge
hanger, which under normal conditions will rest on thc bottom of the
hollow, but can be raised to the level
of tbe surrounding land for the entrance and exit of airships. It will
also be made to revolve so that It
ipay be used In any wind.
When the hangar is depressed the
roof will bridge the hangar completely so as lo make lt scarcely percept-
able from above with a view to ���protecting It from bomb dropping by hos
tile  aeroplanes.

Great Britain than the German mainland, from which point it is known
that at least one Zeppelin airship

In Germany the popular dislike of
