In addition to Investigating conditions of labor generally, the commission will enquire Into the working
and enforcement -at the Master and
Servant Aot,' tho Woodmen's Lien tor
Wages Act and other legislation effecting labor, the precautions taken
for the protection of life, the preservation ot the health and the prevention 'bt unsanitary conditions.
As soon as It msy he conveniently

In writing the..faots feund during
their investigation and- the opinions
they have formed of conditions In

a tew minutes and now that the ottl
cials of the company know that everything is O.K. In the electrical Une, a
start will be made this morning to test
the pipes through which the brine ls
pumped and which results ln Ice being
formed. Like all other refrigerating
planta there are certain to be leaks
ln places but unless a serious one ir
found In the mains, it will only be a
matter of hours before the plant can
be placed tn operation and the formation ot Ice for skating purposes proceeded with.
The question of electrical power has
been the cause of tbe delay during
the past week,' the short break In the
line ot the Western Canada Power
Company holding the arena up.
It Is expected that on Tuesday evening or Wednesday at the attest will
see the place open for business. It
will be decided upon today and fully
announced In the press.
Snow in this -section of the. Dominion ts not received with any great enthusiasm but lt will probably assist
the areata officials In making Ice all
the sooner.
The miles of pipe, which have been
laid on the floor of the horse show
building will be covered with a small
coating of snow and. when, this is
tamped down the water .will be sprin-
keled on tor the refrigerating plant
to work on.
The first game Is scheduled for Friday night so that the Royals will have
two full days oa the 00 before they
meet the Victorias. Tho shape of the
Arena is such aa to give the home
team a' great advantage over either
the. Vancouver or Victoria septettes
and as the small Quebec rink ia to
the Other N.H.A. teams, the Westminster Arsna la likely to prove a hodoo
to the Vanoouver and Victoria teams.
Tha. tw<- lattpr teams meet at Van-,
couver Tuesday night and,the chances!
are that Vancouver will once more
even up In the race for the paterson,
trophy. The fact that the Royals have
played their tour, games away,-from
"home leaves them in the running, for
en their own .ice they should account
for practically every game with * victory and Friday is expected to see

games were straight, although, of

Today is New Year's Day in civic affairs, for at noon
the council of 1912 makes its bow and the new council sets
its hand to ploughing the furrow whose end lies twelvemonths ahead. Mayor Lee and Alderman Curtis say farewell to the city hall administration, for a time at least, and
Messrs. J. S. Bryson and John B. Jardine again take their
places at the aldermanic board.
The last few days have been a time of looking back, a
time of accounting for work done, but we feel that the departure of Mayor Lee from the chief executive office of
New Westminster, calls for a final retrospect. Deeds count
for far more than words, and if by their works men may be
known, the unanimous opinion of his fellow citizens towards M ayor Lee today cannot but be other than genuine
appreciation of the sterling work that has been accomplished, largely by his breadth of ebneeption and power of
' execution, during the past three years.
Mayor Lee was elected in December, 1910 and has presided over the councils of 1910,1911, and 1912. That time
will hereafter be chronicled by historians of the progress
of New Westminster, as the period of its transition from
the village stage to that of a city indeed. The paving of
Columbia street had been arranged for by the 1909 council,
but the work was completed during Mayor Lee's regime,
while the whole of the cement sidewalks in the city have
been laid since 1910.
Previous to his worship's entering office no provision had been made for the opening or grading of streets���
one of the most important branches of the work before
any growing city���the money left over from other departments was all that the board of works received. Mayor
Lee's policy was to estimate as nearly as possible the
amount of work to be attempted and the money required,, A _11Thnt |g a ,|ue9tion wlllch thev
in fact to give the board of works as much as the treasury -�� into, but the first thing they asu
could afford. Its result will for all time be a monument to i '3 ' Jgg ,0 *rj,Z rZZli\��

been made for -die c&mpietion of the sewering of the whole'' " *"
city. Prior to that date Sixth and Fourth streets only
bad been completed. Today much of the complete scheme
has been effected and the Dominion government has signified its willingness to build, to a large extent at its own
���expense, the main trunk sewer.
Turning to transportation, the same record of exceptional progress is set forth. Tram extensions to Millside,
to Queensboro', along Sixth street, provision for a Sixth
avenue line, all speak for themselves. The C. N. R. has
been induced to come into the city with its transcontinental trains, and there is no doubt that New Westminster
will become an important point upon this system. The
waterfrontage contiguous to the penitentiary has been
promised to the city by the Dominion government and a
���grant thereto may be looked for at any time now.
Many other large projects which will infallibly bring
.the Royal City into that position which nature has designed that she should occupy have been set afoot. They
include harbor improvements, municipal gas plant, and extensions in our water and light systems upon a scale far
larger than anything previously suggested. Business has
���developed along unprecedented lines, real estate values
have increased and the outlook for the future is most assuring.
Literally and figuratively the city has been set upon
the map.  We have today what is said to be the first and
only correct_survey of a Canadian city that has been

Bessemer, whose centennry was celebrated yesterday.
Henry Basso-Mer was the original
name of the great Inventor, who wan
born at Charelton, Herts, England.
January 19. 1813. He was the son of
an eminent engineer of French Huguenot descent. His first inventions
were in white metal easting and ele-
trr.-plating. During the Crimean war
he undertook to devise an Improved
cannon, but found the materials available too weak for his purpose.
Then he turned hiB attention to
steel making, and invented the process .which has made fortunes for
thousands of men.
He was knighted br Queen Victoria, honored by scientific societies the
world over, and died In 1896 worth
several  million  dollars.

Australia Is such a marvelouil** rich
country that if she wen* defenceless
she would offer an Irresistible temptation to the overcrowded Asiatic nations of the north; without taking Into account the land hunger of the
other great powers, which are beginning to feel the pressure of population on their limited  areas.
The cadet system, the compulsory
defence system, the scout system, are
all part and parcel of a scheme intended to keep Australia inviolable,
and tn the passing of time to weld the
empire into one Indissoluble whole.
Wo have found that the Boy Scout
movement Imparts Into tho dally life
of our children discipline, morals, and
the love of country, which is so vital
In a young, growing and rich democracy. It provides the boy with a
proper perspective of his place In tbe
world. It widens tlie horizon of his
dally life, lt stimulates him to good
citizenship, lt Induces him to think,
and consequently to exercise some In
lttatlve and some selection in later
years, when he is permitted to use the
franchise. It gives him a very personal concern In all our representative Institutions, and It ensures, when
national safety Is endangered, that he
will not be carried away by any sudden ebullition nf the emotions, but
that he will be guided by knowledge,
reason and experience.
The women of Australia, therefore,
believe In the Roy Scout movement.
It ls Improving the standard of Australia's sons. It Is Increasing the efficiency of Australian defences, which
are based upon the maxim of "defence, not defiance" and inasmuch as

Australia not n nation in arms, but

I took a keen personal Interest In
the Roy Scouts during my recent visit
to Australia, and at Llydale, which ls
close to my country residence In Victoria, a special troop waa formed and
named after me. When Oeneral Baden-Powell came to Victoria be greatly
delighted the lads by Inspecting them
while he was my guest, and complimented them upon their smartness
and efficiency. Perhaps I may be
pardoned for thinking that the Melba
Troop is unexcelled in Australia! Believing, as I do, that we must all play
our part In the defence of tbo empire,

by that squrce of money to help their
clearing, and they are so long in obtaining adequate return that neither
they nor working settlers can under
present conditions be Induced to clear
either timbered or logged-otf land sufficiently to meet the requirements of
B. C.'s rapidly Increasing population.
Therefore those who are striving to
bring sucb needed fertile land Into

Such reasonable means 'should have

Sterling Service of Men
of R.N. W.M.P. to Canada
In the little Crimson Manual it's written plain and clear,
That those who wear the scarlet coat
shall say good-bye to fear;
Shall be a guardian of the right, a
sleuth-hound of the trail.
In the little Crimson Manual there's
no such word as fall.
���From "Clancy of the Mounted Police," by R. w. Service.
Someone in Calgary asked, when
Arctic exploration was being discuss
ed, "Why haven't the Mounted Police
discovered the North Pole?" Quick
came the reply, "because they've never been detailed for duty on the job."
The Inference to be drawn was obvious, and It sums up the new Canadian's opinion of the force.
Wherever the Royal Northwest
Mounted Police are ordered they go.
Whatever tasks are laid upon them
they accomplish. From the border of
Ontario to British Columbia, from the
frozen north to the United States
boundary line, they ride abroad in
twos and threes, sometimes ln ones,
redressing human wrongs.
The lonllest homesteaders feel safe
when they see a flash of scarlet. In
the wildest mining camps their work-
a-day kbarkl Is respected because tt
is fesred. They have yellow em-res
on their blue trousers, but there Is
no yellow streak In them.
From their trim barrack square at
Regina, with IU gay little gardens
around the officers' houses and thc
tall trees which shaded ua as we
watches the "recrutles" drill, one
brings away a very pleasant ���memory.
But It is not at headqi-rarter-s Ihat
the Royal North-West Mounted fdllce
can be seen at their Met.
Oo up to the Yukon or to the shore
of the Arctic sea, ride with them
Into the mountains or rfi patrol
across the lonesome prairie. Then
you get some Idea ot what their duties and their value are.
"There ts a common notion," wrotP
a United States newspaper a few
years back, "that In Canada life and
property are appreciably safer than
they are here In Oregon. Murders
are not so frequent and aTe more
speedily and surely punlslied" Oti--
of the strongest reason for that difference is the existence or the North-
West Mounted Police.
Noble are the records of their
pluck and urit. Not long ago an
ofTicer and four men were frozen to
death on duty In the Arctic region.
They died game.
One day there was a hold-up at
Cochrane. An officer went out from
Calgary alone and stopped the gunplay. A few troopers followed, relieved the disturbers of the peace of
thlrtv-flve revolvers, arrested the tle-
sneradoes. and jailed two of them for
seven years.
On the frontier the contrast between American and Canadian methods has often been thrown up In
strong  relief.    A    travelling    opera
company were pulled out of a train
and terorlied by playful cowboys. A
whltwaahed line on the platform Indicates the border. Once across thla
the company were safe. A mounted
pcllceman put a swlrt end to the dangerous horseplay, which had been unchecked on the American side.
While 1 was at -Reg'na troopers
brought in and consigned to the guard
room a wild-eyed German American
with matted hair and cheeks gaunt
from privation. He was a fanner'-,
hired man. The farmer treated him
badly.    He went off to another rarm.
The farmer refused to pay the
wages due to him because he had
quitted without proper notice. He
brought an action. The farmer won.
Bat ae the farmer drove home the
���erman-American lay ln wait and
shot him, then took to the woods.
Now In the prairie states across
rhe border such a murderer would In
ill probability have got away. It Is
up to the sheriff to seek out and arrest him. But the sheriff had no
such body as the North-West Mounted Police to assist him.
Even if he had, he would very likely think it scarce worth while taking
-treat pains to catch a single law
breaker. That Is why life and property are not so safe In the United
States as they are in Canada.
For ten days forty troopers of the
North-West Mounted Police hunted
that German-American and at last secured him. The difficulty of their
soarch can only be appreciated by
tbose who know the vastness of the
country. Yet, after all. this case was
simple compared with many which
the Mounted Police have handled
with astonishing success.
Here ls a good example of their
tenacity and intelligence.. In 1901 a
b-'dy was found several months after
death. There was nothing bv wblch
to Identify It except a coat label bearing the name of a clothier In Kalamazoo. But there were two bullet
holes ln the skull. So the police were
told to find out all they could.
A corporal was detailed for this
duty. He wrote to the clothier in
Kalamazoo, got no help from him,
but discovered, owing to his Inquiry
being printed and reprinted ln a number of newspapers, that a certain
t,eon Stalnton hat* been missing for
sor-e months.
Stalnton's father said the clothes
were his son's. The next step was
to trace tho son's travels from the
t'me he left home. It appeared that
he had been ln Colorado and bad
tlie��e met a certain '������-'-���-' n-llock.
with whom he set off for Caiada.
After a time Bullock had turned
up alone at a farm, not far from the
snot whore the body was found. He
said he was on his wav to British
Columbia, but tho corporal hit upon
the fart that" he had really gone towards Montana.
Off v.ent the corporal in the same
d rctlon, disguised as a shovel stiff
(railway laborer j. He had a snapshot of Bullock and he looked for
him in every construction camp���
without success.
He had, besides the snapshot, a
specinlen of Bullock's handwriting.
Over this he poured to discover peculiarities. He found one in the formation of the letter "s". Now he
started examining the jay sheets of
all industries along the road which
Bullock had taken. At last he came
upon his "s" ln the name J. A. Sperling.
He arrested Sperling on a charge
of robbery ln Iowa. "But," said the
prisoner, my name Isn't really Sper-
l'rig. It is Bullock." "Right," replied
the corporal, "then you are the man
I want." He was tried, convicted,
and hanged.���The Dally Mall.

Violent Deaths In City  Increased 50

Toronto, Jan. 19.���The Toronto
Mail and Empire editorially says:
In one way at least Toronto is paying a heavy penalty for the growing
complexity of its metropolitan life,
andthe increased speed to which its
traffic and commerce are being set.
The addition to the population of the
city during 1912 Is given as being
about 30,000, or about 7 per cent But
the number of violent deaths ln the
city Increaaed over SO per cent Thla
table of violent deaths ls worth considering, though the figures for 1911
are not complete:

Estimating Toronto's population at
400,000, the suicide rate ls 8.76 per
100,000, as compared with 10.3 by
Maryland, the American state with
the lowest suicide rate ln the Union.
New York has a rate of 16, Chicago
20, Seattle 32, and Frisco 44 per 100,-
000. Again, Toronto has a murder
der rate, If Infanticide be included, of
nearly 5 per cent 100,000. The average over the regtsratlon area of the
the United States is 4.*>, and ln England and Wales it Is 0.9.
The rapid Increase ln the number of
fatalities of all classes. Intentional and
unintentional, may be partly an inevitable concomitant of great density
of population and increasing pressure
of traffic, but lt Is too high to be regarded as irreducible. Toronto should
have a director of public safety."
Russian Jews Over-reach Themselves
in Effort to Practice by Ingenious Fraud.
Moscow, Jan. 19.���An interesting
trial, involving fraud in connection
with obtaining dentist's certificates,
was brought to a close here today,
when two hundred and one Jewish
dentists were sent to prison for a
Some time recently it was discovered that many Jews ln this city bad
become dentists by some underground
means, and an Investigation was
made. For years previous the Jews
could obtain certificates of dentistry
by serving a required apprenticeship,
but this system was revised by making it necessary to obtain a diploma
from  tbe  Moscow  University  .
The Jews who held certificates
could reside outside of the pale, and
the new requirement seriously threat
ened their chance of gaining the
right, diplomas being necessary. Tho
scheme of fraud was then inaugurated
by which Jews could obtain certificates dating before the requirement
of a diploma became necessary, but
they over reached themselves and the
fraud was uncovered.
Many arrests were made, and a
total of five hundred Jewish dentists
and those who aided them, were accused. This number was reduced,
but two hundred and eighty of the
Jewish dentists were arraigned ln
court today.
It took but a short time to convict
two hundred and one of the number,
and the sentence of a year's imprisonment was Imposed. The others were
acquitted. Nine physicians and officials were given sentences ranging
from one to three years for procuring the bogus certificates for the

Darrovv, once acquitted of having bribed a Juror in tho McNamara case, will
face trial tomorrow, on a similar accusation. The second trial is expect-
s-d to occupy much less time than the
first, which lasted 95 days and was
replete  with  sensational  Incidents.
Because none of the Los Angeles
county judges cared to preside Governor Johnson designated Judge W. M.
Conley of Madera county to hear the
case. The defence force has been augmented by Attorney O. W. Powers of
Salt Lake City and the prosecution, by
former Judge Wheaton A. Gray,
District Attorney John D. Fredericks
denied today published reports that
he would not take part in the prosecution. He declared that he Would
have charge of the state's case. Although he has been illfor some time,
Attorney Earl Rogers, who was chief
counsel for the Chicago lawyer in the
flret trial, will serve in a similar capacity.
The indictment upon which' the former chief counsel for the McNatnaras

Utes Will  Not Surrender Tribesman,
Who Is Wanted on Assault
Walk Out Declared as Protest to Admission of Foreigners Without Examination.
Berlin, Jan. 19.���Tho Anieolcan s'.u-
dents of jmedicino, together with the
other students of the University ol
Halle, ere the Innocent cause of a
serious "Clinic strike" which Is thre-
tenlng to spread all over Germany.
Because one-third of the medical
���students at Halle are foreigners
who i have been admitted to
practical classes without their "phy-
leuni" all the German students have
walked out in regular strike fashion
and refused to attend their classes
unless the fprelgncrs are compelled
to pajs their "pbyelcum" like ordinary (ferman collegians.
Thiji word "physclum" In German
acadeenic parlance signifies an exam-
inatiph which has to be passed by
every'student after five semesters or
two rears and a half of university
work.?, A medical student must have
ten semesters university training lo
order Ao,. be admitted to practice.
After the first five semesters he
must 'qualify for admission for thc
studiejk of .the second five semesters
If the strike spreads to all universl-
t'es, foreign students will have tc
show sthelr qualifications for admission fc the second term of studies
or pa|s their "phyeicum" like native
students., <
TJItjJ present strike is a climax tc
the groif-ing discontent of German
students'' over the steadilv inereasinc
number of foreigners admitted to the
medical classes and other branches
of stuBles.. The strikers' attitude ls
the on-jcome. of belief that admission
to the,universities is made easier for
foreign students than for Germans.
In thit they are entirely wrong. The
cliff'cifjty In the present situation is
the fa-it thnt the -foreign students are
m-Milb-ied by law from passing tnelr
"phys'jjitm" at the German universities.   5
The (hopsequence Is they are admitted without as thorough elementary
training as the Germans. This ap
plies particularly to Russian students
who compose nearly the entire foreign 'contingent at Halle;
The "revolt cf the German students
already, has spread to the University

Just where the Vancouver writer

to the fans in New Westminster.
Tho race was arranged by Vancouver sports who were anxious to win
a little money'bn the side by betting
on their pets, Taylor and Grlffls. Little
did they expect to see Mallen win and
their disappointment la aired through

In the draw Mallen got the outside

speed allowed him to break ahead on

One of the most ferocious battles
In ring history, was fought near London fifty-one years ago yesterday.
Jan. 19, 1862, when Tom Mace and

first time. The bout was for the
heavyweight ""championship of England and a purse of $1000. For forty

defeating Sam Hurst, the Stalybrldge
Infant, and held It until November,
1863, when he again met King, This
lime King was the victor, and claimed the hilt, but soon forfeited lt by
refusing to meet Mace again. From
that time until 1872, when he toured.
America.and fought a draw with J.

Western Canada Rugby Union Break

J. J. JONES, Managing Director.
Head Office: 28 Lorne 8treet,     New Westminster.
Itegina, Jan. 19.���The threatened
break between the Western Canada
Rugby Union and the Eastern Rugby
authorities came to a bead yesterday
when at the second annul meeting
ot tho former body lt was decided to
break away from the senior body and
formulate an organization of its own
and Ignore the self-appointed Eastern
rugby  moguls.
Playing rules will be drawn up and
a rule book published by the Western
Canada Rugby Union which will include all data necessary for such au
organization, including a constitution
and by-laws of the three affiliated
Tills radical action came as a result of tbe attitude of the East toward the Western rugby men during
the past two years. The refusal of
the Canadian Union to consider the
suggestions made by the Alberta
Union being; the immediate cause of
the drastic action.
The rules under which the Western
Canada Union will play will be but
slightly changed this year from those
of the Canadian Union. They will be
merely a revision of the present
rules with the redundancies and contradictions removed. However, this
does not signify that the Weitenf Canada Union is unwilling to break from
the beaten track as far as rules are
concerned, but it whs thought advisable for the' first ye'kr to 'devote the
energies to the perfecttort ' ot the
organization ot the .mlosi rather then
to the details ot the game.
C. H. Bellenger was chosen' president of  the  Western  Canada Union !
for the year 1913, and the place   of!
the next annual meeting was fixed for
Calgary.   Murray Thomson waa elect*
ed secretary-treasurer. ,
Another action wblch is of considerable Importance, was tbe decision
to bave a flxed sum guaranteed - to
each team for transportation,
The.setting of dates and the place
of playing next year's games caused
a very warm discussion. Alberta
thought that St least one of the
gameB should be assumed for Itself.
The other delegates copW hpt 'see It.,,
If was decided to ado-p't the to.Ii""wl*!-
schcdule which ' would cover three
years and would assure all provinces
of at Jeaat one game: 1913, Alberta
at Saskatchewan, Manitoba at winner; 1M4, - M-aulte-ba-. al. Alb'-rt*-,^Saskatchewan at winner; "1916," Saskatchewan at Manitoba, Alberta '-af

"A Modern Eve."
In accordance with the previous announcement made by the management "A Modern Eve," the' brilliant
musical success, which has. b-eeh',delighting New York, Chicago and other
cities, will be the attraction"-at tly-i
Opera House Friday next. '���'A'Modern Eve" Is' an Important Success
from Berlin, Germany, where.it. Is
still a reigning favorite. Martin' Beck
and Mort. H. Singer are the fortunate producers who decided that America would-appreclate Its charms and
Judging by its record breaking run
ln Chicago, their judgment was correct.
Although "A Modern Eve" has only
visited Chicago thus far in this country, its delightful music has been the:
rage everywhere, and the faclnatlng
waltz song, "fioodbye ' Everybody',"
"Lonesome Moon;" "Henri Sweetheart;" "Ib the Girl You Merried Still
the Girl You Love;" and "Itito, my
Margarltta," are remarkably popular.
The music was written by Victor
Hollaender. also distinguished as the
composer of "Suniurun," and from
Jean Gilbert, both of whom have been
associated with many of the musical

Whose Fleet Is Forced   to Retire   to
Dardanelles   After   Three-Hour
Athens, Jan. 19.���Another sea fight
between the Greek and Turkish fleets
occurred yesterday about thirty
miles to the south of the entrance to
the Dardanelles.
The Greek war vessels attacked the
Turkish squadron and forced the Ottoman warships to return to the Dardanelles Straits in disorder.
The Turkish flagship Is said to have
suffered considerably.
The engagement lasted three hours.
Only one Greek waa wounded, while
the Greek warships were not damaged
according to a long despatch sent by
Admiral Countourlotls to the government The' admiral reports that the
Turkish fleet consisted of the battleships Kheyr-Ed-Din-Barbarossa, Tor-
gut Rels, Messudieb and Assar-i-Tell-
flk, the cruiser Hamldleh and thirteen
destroyers and torperdo boats. The
Greek fleet Included the battleship!;
Averoff, Hydra, Spetsal and Psara and
eight gunboats and destroyers.
The following description of the engagement was sent by the Governor of
"The naval fight began at 11:25
o'clock. In the morning. Both sides
fought desperately. The Turks at 12.G0
began slowly to retreat. At 1:10 the
Turkish battleships were fleeing in
disorder toward the Straits, firing at
long Intervals at the Averoff, which
was pursuing at a distance of five
thousand metres, and rapidly overhauling the enemy.
"The Hamldleh headed the flight.
One of tbe Turkish battleships ceased
firing and waB apparently disabled by
the deadly fire of the Averoff. The
fight ended at 2:30 p.m., when the
enemy re-entered the Dardanelles.
The Barbarossa and Torgut Rels
throughout the fight were enveloped
in smoke, but continued to fire slowly.
When they entered the straits they
had a list to starboard. The Greek
fleet ceased the pursuit when it came
within range of the guns of the forts
and remained cruising off the entrance."
A later despatch from Admiral Coun-
touriotis says:
"Have beaten the enemy's fleet,
which was steaming towards Lemnos,
and pursued it almost Into the
straits, where It took refuge in disorder. The engagement lasted three
hours. We had only oue man slightly
wounded. The damage to the Averoff is insignificant and the fighting
power of the fleet has not been affected."

Novel Idta Planned to Increase Marriages and Births  In Germany.
Germany like France has been
steadily facing a declinirs birth rate
This la causinK much wur-riment, especially in a country where every1 boy
oorii is counted as a military asset
in Prussia the total number ol births
in 1911 was 1.2212,000, a loss of 34,000
from the preceding year and a loss ol
69,000 from the average of the decade
The situation is becoming so alarming in Germany that Dr. Wolfgang
Hassall, of Munich, is planning to
start a university of love. He claims
that this is the only way to save Germany's marriage and birth rates. Just
as universities of science fit men for
life by making them scientific, so will
universities of love fit them for domesticity, by making them amorous.
In 'nis idea Herr Hassall is very
serious. He does not intend to call
his place of learning university of
love, but High School of the Marriage-
Sciences. However, the High School
wjll approach marriage only by way
of love.
The practical obstacles are great.
The High 8chool will hold at most
only 500 pupils, male and female,
while there are 60,000,000 Germans
who love, will love, or could, would,
or should ha*re loved. To teach all is
Herr Hassall states that the university will not train lovers, but teachers
of love. When the BOO men and maid'
have graduated in the High School uf
Love, they will be turned out not U.
love selfishly and narrowly themselves, but to spread the gospel and
science of love among tha loveless ol
The ctirricn'.um of Dr. Hasssil's university of love is outlined roughly
There' will be regular lectures, iilns-

Prince   Albert  Sails.
London,  Jan.  19.���With  Prince Albert.   King    Oeorge's    second     son,
aboard, the cadet training ship Cum-
I ber land,  sailed   yesterday   for  a   six
months' cruise, which will include the
46   Lorne  Street,   New  Westminster, i West Indus.
London, Jan. 19.���David Alfred
Thomas, known as "the Napoleon of
South Wales mining," sailed for New
York on the Mauret-iniu yesterday on
a mission connected with some important coal mining propositions to be
laid before him ln the United States.
���Ho is a man of strong personality
and easily the most prominent figure
In the British coal mining Industry,
being chairman, deputy chairman or a
director of more than 26 large collieries, railroads and allied industrial
The Cambrian coal combine, the
biggest Individual producer of Welsh
steam coal, was formed by him. Companies employing 50,000 men are In
his control and the output of hiB collieries exceeds 10,000,000 tons a year.
He Is reputed to be more than a millionaire. As Great Britain's leading
authority on coal mining and a man. of
Iron, he was the spokesman of the colliery owners In all the conferences
with the government and miners during last year's great coal strike.    ,
Before sailing, Mr. Thomas said:
Men No Further Ahead.
"I do not object to a minimum living
wage, but ln the last strike a minimum
living wage for all grades was claimed.
I do not believe men in our mines are
one whit better off than before they
struck, for our average was so high
the strike only cost up a farthing per
ton additional.
"Anything that tends to check coal
mining deals a fatal blow to Industry
generally. Countries have become
great in Industry in proportion to their
coal resources! Coal has made Kng-
land industrially what she Is.
Germany's prosperity has grown in
proportion to the development of her
coal mining. The same applies to
the United States. But countries without coal, such as Italy or Scandinavia,
are greatly handicapped ln their industrial expansion.
Oil No Competition.
"Coal has little to fear as yet from
oil competition, because the latter Ib
much dearer and increasing in price."
Being asked if America is likely to
become a serious competitor with
Britain in the European steam coal
markets, Mr. Thomas answered:
"I don't think bo, for our enormous
import trade, largely in bulky materials enables us to get exceptionally
low freights outward to the competing
centres. Ships take freight at low
rates rather than Eald light. During
our strike American steam coal was
sold In Europe along the Mediterranean and in South America, but
South Wales has entirely recovered
that trade.
"As to the Panama Canal, the only
market the United States has really
beaten us out of s tlie West Indies,
and that being on established fact, the
opening of the Panama Canal ls not
likely to exercise much effect on our
coal production."
"What is the object of your Journey
to the United Stater?" he was asked.
Will Look at Coal Fields.
"1 am going over," Mr. Thomas replied, "to personally ascertain whether
���everal important coal propositions
that have been made to me in the last
twelve months are worth taking up. 1
believe that from various centres there

Generally speaking the knights and
members of parliament are Interested
principally ln mortgages, Industrials
and mines; though, of course, some of
them own land. Sir Kenneth Ander-
son, for Instance, is said to own half
the townslte of Albernl.
Sir William Codrington, Sir Clement
Klnloch-Cooke, and Sir Reginald Mac-
leod.have recently become Interested
n tracts of several thousand acres ln
British Columbia. City properties, too,
are popular with this class, and among
the holders we find hundreds of. well-
known names.
A recent advertisement makes an
appropriate conclusion to this despatch. A Blxteen-century residence
and estate, which have been ln the
present owner's family since the reign
of Henry VI., are ln the market.
There may be other reasons for Its
disposal, but you cannot reasonably
exclude the supposition that Its owner wants to Invest ln Canada.

Two women who accompanied the

that all classes In British life are responding to the appeal of the Dominion. Each week throughout the sailing

As Illustrating the appeal Canada
makes to the society woman, the cases
of Lady Eileen Campbell, who Is personally running a farm In Alberta,

Romance of the Girl Who f
Was Tired Out. t
It wus a warm spring evening, so
warm that thoy bad ventured to sit
out on ihe little wooden veranda.
There was a suggestion of approach-
Jug summer In tne breeze, and tbe air
was redolent wltb lilacs. By glancing
towurd tbe right it was not difficult to
fee where tbe fragruuce came from.
-On tlie otber side of the hedge In the1
deepening twilight was a purple forest
of illumes, und beyond that, white ln
(be gray light, rose tbe old Howard
bouse. Ihe oldest tn the tiny village as
well ns the largest. Selden Howard
was the only living representative of
(be family.
Presently the group on sirs. Jones'
veranda began to speak of Selden,
lending up to tbe subject from Ibe fragrance of tbe bushes.
"Tbem   lilocks  Is  slckl������'. ly  sweet."'
observed Mrs. Jones herself.
"Ilenlly nauseating." acquiesced the
boarder wbo bad been spending the
winter here in thin little cottage among
the Berkshire bills. "By tbe way. 1
k.-iw a strange man at the postofflce
this morning, and I overheard some one
sny he was Mr. Howard. Very good
looking man he was and seemed to
know n thing or two."
"That's blm." rontirmpd Mrs. .lonea
"Dot why shouldn't he know a thing or
two? He don't do nothin' but travel
nnd trapse round Ihe country. Hardly

Let the Buyer Beware
For centuries the principle of "Let the Buyer Beware"���
"Caveat Emptor"���ruled the world of business. In fact, it was
not a principle���but rather a lack of principle���yet it held sway
everywhere until a decade or two ago.
When a merchant quoted a price, he made it high enough to
stand almost unlimited whittling, and yet be profitable���to him.
When he spoke of quality, his fingers were crossed, arid you were
not expected to believe him���unless you wanted to very badly.
Buying waa a haggle���unless you

Advertising baa helped, because Advertising creates confidence In the
1'iiyer and proves th* seller's confidence In his ware*. Confidence has
eliminated the haggle.

The retail merchant doesn't lock

Advertising is the means through which the manufacturer
makes this demonstration to you.
Advertising has given personality to commodities, so that
you now recognize your "friends" among soap, tea, or collars, as
readily as you recognize your human acquaintances.   ,
Advertising fathered the "money back" principle, and has

Advertising has spread the one-price policy���erased "Caveat Emptor" from the language of business, and made buying
