The reports upon the various branches of Industry
with which New Westminster is associated and which
were presented before the Hoard of Trade on Friday evening last are in themselves documents of the very greatest
interest to all our citizens and to the outside world. Their
compilation was undertaken by men who have the details
of their callings at their finger tips and the result of their
labors is at once a compliment to them and an admirable
illustration to their fellows of the great potentialities for
yet further development this city possesses alike
harvesting of the products of the sea and the forest, and in
the many branches of manufacturing which have their
centre here.
It is satisfactory to note that Now Westminster,
through its Board of Trade, has decided to fall into line
with other cities of consequence throughout the Dominion
by instituting here a branch of the Imperial Home Reunion Association. By this means men now living in the
city will be enabled to have their wives and families who
are now resident in the British Isles, come out to them
much sooner than would have been the case had they to
wait until they had sufficient funds of their own to pay
for the passages of their relatives. We hope to see the
population materially increased by this new move during
the coming year.
This, however, is but one of many steps forward that
fie Hoard of Trade has effected during the year nasi. In
fact the time at Friday's meeting was insufficient to take
up many matters of prime importance to Westminster,
such as the suggestion of the outgoing president, Mr. John
R. Duncan, that the creation of the office of industrial
commissioner for the city would result in a healthy impetus to our present status as a manufacturing centre.
Here we would point out that the Hoard of Trade.has
accomplished much work of sterling value to the community it represents, and we feel sure that under the direction of Mr. John A. Lee, who for the second time assumes
the office of president, the Hoard will go on doing still
further service to New Westminster and the Fraser

"Six  Min or DoroBt" Honored Today,
70th Anniversary of "Martyrdom."
ai Tolpuddla, in Dorsetshire, Kng
land, a monument has just been erect
i .1 in the memory of the "six men of
Dorset," also called "the firBt martyrs of trades unionism," and tnotu
orlal e'-'.oro.sc.. will be held there in-
day to mark the seventieth anniversary of their "martyrdom," it was on
I*', Ii. 34, 1843, that the six labor union
pioneers were thrown into prison to
serve a sentence of seven years im
posed them by Judge Williams, who
had said:
"Nol for anything you have done,
lor as 1 can prove you Intend to do
but as an example to others I cousidei
It my duty to pass this sentence upon
each and evey one of you."
The "Six men Of Dorset" who are
now enrolled  In labor's hall of fame'.
were oommon laborers, Reaching the
point where they could no longer support their families on their scanty
j wages, they joined In a demand for
: an increase of one- shilling twenty-
four cents- a week.
This ������Impudent demand" was forthwith refused by Ihelr masters, and tin
i Blx men held a conference on tin- situ
lotion, This meeting was held lo con-
;st;tulo a deep, dark and devilish con-
| splracy against the peace and pros
i perlty of the British empire, nnd the
'men were arrested, convicted aud Hent
: into transportation for seven year:,
in hardly more lime than It takes to
tell It.

| names of the men  inscribed on  the
I Tolpuddla monument.   They were described   aB   "honest   and   Industrious
i men. whoso only desire was to obtain
better conditions of Hviiig for themselves and their neighbors."
As farm laborers, the six men of
Dorset originally received nine shillings a week. Despite tbe fact that
ithe price of food was advancing,
their wages were reduced to eight i
shillings, and then to seven shillings,
or about $1.76 a week. With this in'-

coarse bread. The straw was placed
' on the eyimel's back when the em-
; ploying formers held a meeting and
decided to reduce wages lo laborers
to six shillings a week.

Tho recent public discussion  as to
the  advisability of  titles  being  offered or accepted in Canada, has le-d to
a compillatlon of the number of these
British honors of Canadian origin.
There are almost one hundred Canadians entitled lo nign "sir" before
their name, while cf the lesser titles
the letters after the name which carry with them no -general title, there
are at least 200.
(If course all the facts as to Canadian titles are yearly repeated in De-

to conceal admirably tho Canadian it-

Qranmum i�� alwaya merry, bright and
full of life. Her daughter Marie is
solemn, rlr'ct nnd Puritanical, trails
sho Inlii rits from her father. The

heredity, resemble in temperament
and   disposition   their   grandmother,
Their li'i'thrr rules lb m with a rod

than once slipped out of the house
and  gone to the City  to visit  a Jolly

thero is good food, fun. music and excellent dancing. Qranmum discovers

thi Ir visit, the place Ih raided for selling   liquor  after    midnight,   and    the
names of the boys get into the papers.
Troubles thicken about Qranmum and
the boys. A thousand dollar bond has

Qranmum and the two boys to snve

While comedy prevails, there is also

I'aris, Feb 28. An EngllBh marchioness, the Marchioness Townsend,

The picture play, which Is of the
melodramatic order nud Is entitled
"A Strong Man's Love," has been produced by a Uritish film company, the
Originally written as a four-act play
whloh could not find a producer, the
marchioness decided that with its dramatic situations and swift action it
was more suitable for a picture play,
and as such submitted-to the Clarendon company, who accepted it and pro-
duced it. The peeress supervised the
production of her play, witnessed a
private performance of it und approved it. The theme of the play
deals with the career of a daughter of
a country clergyman who wishes to
tee life in London.

by Nell 0, Nelson, another fisherman,
In tllO course of a quarrel al Annie-
vllle, Delta municipality, last September, over the bunching of Nelsou's
net, Lande sued Nelson for flilutl In
the county coun.
Nelson, Ihe defendant In the can*,
had been previously tried for assault'
by ihe magistrate at Ladner and acquitted. Liande, the plnntlli, then ln-
ulltuted civil proceedings.
The etiBO raised a novel point In '
law and hinged upon the clrcuinslunce j
whether the magistrate In the criminal proeoedlngH bud tried and decided
tho caBo iih one of common assault,
which would hnvo barred a HtihHequont
civil action, or as an assault oooalloh-
Ing actual bodily harm.
The Judgment,
In a lengthy Judgment bla honor
stated: "At the trial I held, on the
facts, thai thn defendant had committed Iho assault alleged. It was certainly an assault occasioning actual

Couniel agreed thut the aniwer depends whether or not these proceed-
Inlgl were for a common assault. In
Ibis view I conctir.
"The question Is, I take it. one of

documentary and other evidence.
"The lummom Issued charged (before the magistrate) that tbe defendant did assault (iunder Lande at the

Form  of  Statement.
The  form  of Statement  Of common
assault     under    section     'J'.i     of     the
Statute is that at tbe time  and place
stated "A did assault or assaulted nnd
beat 11." For an assault, causing actual bodily harm, It runs "A clicl make
an assault upon and heal and occasion
actual bodily harm to 11." Thus the
statement of the offence by the mag-
| latrate agrees with neither, yet as he
held the   judicial   Investigation   the
question is which one wan he trying'.'

Even if the power to try summarily

In determining the nature of the
[charge before the magistrate, It must
be noted that it Is not necessary that
the charge bn. laid In Ihe ejact words
of the statute, lt Ib sufficient If It
Btated thi! substance Of the offence In
popular language. Now a reference
to the Imperial dictionary shows that
to occasion means to cause. I can
see no substantial difference.
I, therefore, hold that tbe charge
the magistrate was Investigating was
a charge of assault occasioning actually bodily harm.
Tho atatement in the depositions, In
the evidence before men. that: the
magistrate took the election of the
defendant tn be tried summarily, a
totally unnecessary proceeding, Indicates tbat he considered ho was dealing with an assault occasioning actual

swindlers responsible for "the Span

Tho gang, which Is admirably or

proprietor of a house at 18 Luchane
street. Ho wub assisted principally by

Rico's house was specially built for

with false doors und secret rooms, and

Every day hundreds of letters were
despatched to the four corners of the
earth, Inviting foreigners to lift Unhidden treasure hidden somewhere by
a bankrupt prisoner in Madrid.
Tho victlniB were Invited to telegraph to some bogus address here.
Then au outdoor agent of tho gang,
Antonio QallegO Ortega, a former telegraph messenger, was directed to

Ortega's task consisted In bribing
the telegraph messenger boys, who

delivered to Ortega. Ills task was
greatly facilitated by the miserable

one  of  his  many  Journeys over   the
fuce of Europe, tie visited Uskodama,
and finding its past glories uutliminetl.

named after himself.
This Imperial edict went forth. It

where he threw across tbe island Ihe

It Is curious to think that Hadrian
was busy restoring the city, which to
this dny bears bis name at a time
when our heathen ancestors were still j weak

There is no record that Hadrian saw-
any city In the British Isles worthy of
restoration, but Adritinople's fine

Where  Rome's  Legions  Last  Fought.
Here ln the days of the Emperor
Yalens. what was known in history as
"the last battle of the legions" was
fought near the end of the fourth century.
Tbe doths had been permitted to
crosB the Danube Into Roman terri
tory, on account of the pressure of
the  Huns behind  them.     Becoming
dissatisfied with their lot in the Hal
kans they rose In rebellion and
streamed ab a mighty host across tlie
Balkans Into Thrace and the fertile
country around Adrianople slaughter-
huddled to getber In such close forma
tion Ihat they could hardly use tbelr
swords, were literally mown down by
the onsweep of the enemy's cavalry,
ami thus began a slaughter famous
even lu (he annals or Europe In those
limes of fierce warfare.
Not only was Ihe Roman nriny annihilated but thn emperor himself
either died on the field or was burnt
in a neighboring oottage, which the
victors set on  fire.    Exactly  how he
met bis death  Is not, as a matter  of
fact, known.    Hut from the day which
he ill. tl. Ihe Roman legions were seen

Is Unique Decision of French Court-
Dressmaker Can Claim No
Bigger Sum.
Paris, Feb. 23. The ffth chamber
has pronounced a verdict which created most serious misgivings in the
mlndi of hiiBlmuds and wives. A
dressmaker sued a husband for J2!.tt
for toillettes supplied to his wife In
1912. and pleaded that the amount
was "quite a trifle for any lady with
tho slightest pretensions to elegance."
The husband, however, without venturing to break a lanco over this
point, declared that any tradesman
before opening such a large credit for
a married lady ought first to ask antl
obtain  the  approval  of the husband

Following the fundamental principle

Curiously enough this new idea

for Ireland, in reiterating in the
HoiiEe of Commons today the ttate-
ment that nothing had been discovered to explain tbe mystery of the
theft i r to Justify the arrest and
prosecution of anyone, went on to
"The 1 tory that anyone is being
shielded Ib a lie, and I am sorry lt has
been lately revived In connection with
he name of Lord Haddo. The intro-
luctlon of his name is a particularly
ornel outrage, Tor ho was not In Ireland for montha before or after the
robbery. He had no connection With
the ofrice of arms, and was only In
that ofrice once in his lire."

Victoria, Feb. 21���A great deal of
speculation is being Indulged in respecting the route to be followed by
the Pacific Great Eastern Hallway
northward from the upper end of Anderson lake, ln the vicinity of the
town of Lillooet.
It is understood that representations have been made to members Of
the government that the line should
pass through the town of Lillooet, or
at least the crossing of the Fraser
river at that point should be made
Just below the town and convenient
'o it.
There. Is a rumor current that the
railway, according to present plans
will crosi*i the Fmaer at a point from
two to four miles below the town of
Lillooet and pass through some high
lands opposite the town, thence striking northerly away from the banks
of the river and in tho direction of
the town of Clinton, which the line
may or may not touch.
From a point at, or In tho vicinity
of Clinton, thc line will swing off towards Quesnel, possibly striking the
Frnser again at Ihat point and thenco
on the front steps by  Mrs. Fay her
self, in looso dirt which has just been 'proceeding to Fort George by the rlvcr
scratched up by chickens. 1 route.
This article is just as good and costs less than the X ���
brand because it doesn't have to stand such heavy advertising expense," says a certain grocer. Is he right? Is
it an expense?    Is advertising an expense?
Thc average person looks on the millions of dollars of
advertising carried by magazines of national circulation
as an expense. He believes that it is taken out of the
pockets of somebody, though he doesn't have a clear idea
who thc sufferer is.
Let us see who really foots the bill.
Every maker of automobiles or flour, or any other
article, is using his best brains to manufacture his wares
as economically as possible and to put them into your
hands with the least possible cost to himself. His criticism on every plan and method is merciless, and if advertising were an expense, instead of an investment that
pays him well, he would stop it instantly.
Dead stock or goods that won't sell is thc cause of
most failures among retail stores, (iood advertising is
thc best possible assurance thut goods will sell. Advertising familiarizes customers with the goods, and makes
quick, easy sales. Instead of the retailer footing thc bill
lor national advertising, hc finds in it one of thc greatest
builders of his prosperity.
In everything you buy, you pay for three things��� *
the raw materials, the cost of making, thc cost of selling.
So, if you choose, you can say that you "paid" for the machinery which makes good shoes cost you less than they
did twenty years ago. In thc same way you "pay" for
the advertising which enables thc manufacturer, through
increase of his business, to put better value into his shoes.
So, if you choose, you may say that thc salesman and retailer "pay" for advertising which, while it may lower
their percentage of profit, increases their earnings. So,
if you choose, you may say that the manufacturer "pays"
for thc advertising which swells his dividends by diminishing the expenses of selling his goods. Advertising
usually lessens the cost of articles as measured by their
Hut more. A big business can be run more economically than a little one. Advertising makes business bigger and in this respect, too, it pays for itself out of savings
in running expenses.
Two salesmen travel through Ohio, we will say, selling
refrigerators. One offers a refrigerator that the public
knows nothing about, and his trip yields orders for $4,-
000.00. The other sells a refrigerator which everybody
knows favorably through advertising. His orders will
amount to $20,000.00. Now the hotel bills, railroad fares
and other expenses will be thc same for each, and these
must be paid for out of the profits of the trip. Which
will be able to command thc larger salary?
A certain clothing house eight years ago did an annual business of $3,000,000, and the cost of selling the
goods amounting to 8 per cent. Good advertising has
since then increased their annual business to $15,000,000,
and the cost of selling, including advertising expenditures,
has fallen to 5 per cent. The salesmen are earning much
more money, and the advertising has enabled them to do
it, because while their commissions are smaller, their sales
are easier and more than trebled in volume.
Bill Baker made pies, poor pies, without trade mark
or label. These he sold to cheap restaurants, and little
did he care whether the pies were good or not, because
they were made to sell and hardly anyone knew who made
them. But one day, growing ambitious, he put an advertisement of his pies in the paper which succeeded beyond
his highest hopes. His small plant was swamped by
calls for pies. As orders came in he saw himself in a near
golden future of the peerless pie king. Suddenly a new
thought crashed through Bill Baker's serenity���a thought
that had never intruded before. His pies were bad���so
bad that nobody would ever buy a second one. This flood
of orders instead of being a promise of fortune would
ruin his reputation unless he delivered good pies.
In Baker's place, you would have done what he did���
run to the telephone and telegraph to demand instant delivery of the best pie-making materials obtainable. Just
as you would do, so do most manufacturers. As their
business grows they realize more and more keenly that
their prosperity depends on their making goods that their
customers will continue .to buy.
All thc questions above have been only half answered.
Thc rest of the reply is plain when you understand what
advertising is.
The constant aim of all human beings is to work wise
economics in living. You don't consider the buttons on
your clothes as an expense, because to get along without
them would be vastly more expensive. The manufacturer doesn't consider as an expense a $5,000 machine
which saves him $10,000 in three years' running.
Now it costs money to sell goods. We have auto-,
matic guns and banjos, but no article that is automatic
enough to sell ifeelf. Them: :^t!j ay -" selling
goods is it store them and wait 0.���* purchasers to come.
The toasi rypensive way is to tell *hc public about them
by advertising.
So, you see, good advertising is paid for by everybody and by nobody. By everybody, because wc all bear
our share in earning the money with which business is
carried on, and by nobody, because advertising is a labor-
saving method of selling goods.���Saturday Evening Post.
