"When interurban service waa run
on the Twelfth street line." stated Mr.
-Purvis, Fourth avenue was never a
stopping place, but when the city service was Inaugurated on the street.
Fourth.avenue was made a stopping
place for a time. On account of the
'��� heavy grade, however, the damage
stlone to the electrical equipment In
starting the cars going up kill waa too
.'great and the stop was cancelled.

Secretary Nagel denied that the)

false story was directed against a

the political aspect of the case as us
aggravation ot the offence."

of the sabor -candidates. He finished

one of the lWt*ostsste -seven.

Municipal battles on a big scale are over for another
twelvemonth. New Westminster has spoken and in no
uncertain voice has decreed that throughout 1913 there
shall be a continuation of the policy of progress initiated
during the regime of Mayor Lee. *
This is the great outstanding fact contained in the re
turn of Mayor-elect Gray by acclamation on Monday, and
in the return last evening of all those members of last
year's council who offered themselves for re-section, and,
further, we are glad to say, in the return of Mr. J. S. Bry*
son and Mr. John B. Jardine, both of whom have signified
their intention of loyally co-operating with their fellow
aldermen-elect in the service of the city.
The number of candidates who offered themselves
was in itself an indication of the vigor of public spirit in
the community. There are some good men, solid, progressive citizens among those who failed to pass the post sufficiently high up, and we doubt not that many of them will
again be ready to ride forth for another tilt in the lists.
The magnificent lead of Alderman Dodd should in
some measure set off the disappointment of the labor interests in not securing further representation on the council, while they have added to their laurels by the return of
Mr. R. A. Stoney to the school board, upon which he has
had former experience.
Trustee Peck's services in the cause of education in
Westminster are rewarded by his return at the head of the
poll, while in Mr. J. A. Rennie, the board will be strengthened by the acquisition of a gentleman who brings to its
conclave sound business experience coupled with a genuine and longstanding interest in scholastic matters.
For good or ill the die is now cast, and we believe and
hope that both the members of the council and the school j
board for the coming year will drop insignificant differences of opinion and work harmoniously together in the
.advancement of the city we are all proud to call our home.
We have scarcely passed the half way mark of the
ej>��\a<st^live num-aer ot coT\vet\UorvB '-wYactt -wltt Wlm

On Jan. 20 the city will welcome the British Columbia
Stockbreeders' Association, and on the two following days,
the B.C. Dairymen's Association will in turn sit in annual
convention. Then on February 11 forty-five road superintends in the employ of the Provincial Government will
���gather here for mutual instruction and enlightenment,
and, looking still farther ahead, it is a pleasure to announce that the B.C. Federation of Labor has chosen the
Royal City for its annual convention in 1914.
m We do not doubt that other influential bodies will
visit the city during the year that lies ahead, but just now
the above, especially when taken in conjunction with last
year s events, goes far to establish the fact that the oldest
city upon the mainland is receiving her due share of recognition. It is at once a sign of the energy and interest of
her citizens and of the results that can be obtained thereby.
The gathering here of those who are particularlv interested in matters pertaining to the soil and stock 'is in
keeping with the premier rank that the Fraser Valley

prosperity, David Lloyd-Oeorge will
celebrate his fiftieth birthday today.
I'.n 'uiH of praise and objurgations of
bitterest hatred will greet the ears
of the British Chancellor of the Ex.

half-century of existence.
"The herald of the dawn," "The
saviour of England," and "The symbol of the new age" are soma of the
titles bestowed by his admirers on
the author of the old age pension
act, the national insurance bill, and
other measures for the amelioration
of the condition of the poor. The

Lloyd-George Is a Welshman ln

was not born In Wales, It was in
Manchester, tho great English Industrial centre, that he came Into the
world on Jan. 17, 18G3. His father,
William George, was a school teach-
or in that city. His mother Elizabeth
Lloyd, before her marriage to the
"pdagogue. was the daughter of
Baptist clergyman. Both parents
were of sturdy Welsh peasant Btock.
The injustice of the absentee landlord system was early Impressed on
the mind of young David, and hi:
youthful heart swelled with bitterness against what seemed to him a
heartless,  cruel  tryanny.
His father died when he was three,
leaving a destitute family to the tender mercies of a distant landlord,
who sold the widow's scant belong-
in-* to satisfy a debt.
The little Georges were too numerous for the mother to care for all,
and David was given to the care of
an uncle, who was a cobbler six days
a week snd a Campbelllte Baptist
minister on the seventh day. The
uncle, poor as he was, managed to
ducate David for the law, and at
���enty-one the future chancellor was

Printers and newspapermen in a

birth of Benjamin Franklin today.
Great as he was as an inventor,
statesman, ambassador, author, savant and scientist, Franklin's claim
to immortality rests mora on his
achievements as a printer and editor. In the latter capacity, he gave
voice to a principle that should be
emblazzoncd in every editorial ssn-
tum. As a young man he founded
he Pennsylvania Gazette, and soon
made It a power iu Philadelphia journalism.
He was approached by one of the
"malefactors of great wealth" of h-s
day, and urged to adopt a certain <**li-
orial policy that would benefit the
gentleman of means. In his repi>
to this proposition, Franklin wrote
that he had considered the project

In Northern  British Columbia Is Being   Investigated   by   Department

Ottawa, Jan. 16.���-The Department
of Labor bas been making a special investigation into conditionsu uder
which workmen are engaged In the
cities of Eastern Canada for empoly-

P. line In Northern British Columbia,
and finds, that complaint is made by
certain em ploy ment agencies; also
that many workmen on being engaged are shipped to the wilds without first providing themselves with
blankets, boots overalls, shirts and
other necessaries, which are only to
be had at very high prices on the
As respects the latter point, the Inspector of tbe Department of Labor,
who recently visited Tete Jaime Cache
on the G.T.P. line In British Columbia,
writes that he met workmen who said
they were told by employment agents
tbat lt was not necessary to take
blankets and wearing apparel with
them, as they could procure them at
the camps at prices as low as in the
eastern cities.
It ls the inspector's opinion that
many of these men, before working
long enough to recoup the subcontractor for the outfits supplied, become tired of the job and commence
a weary walk out ot the wilds to civ-
The Inspector was told, however,
that some agents had taken advantage of those generous offers on the
contractors' part to secure from applicants for work the highest fees
they could obtain and that the fees
charged rlalway laborers ranged from

Mongolian Places' Plate of Beef   and
Onions   Before   Customer,   Breaking All Caste Regulations.
Shades of ISuddism and of the
image cf the Sun God, appeared in
police court yesterday morning before
Pclice Magistrate Edmonds.
It all happened in a Japanese hash
shop west of Eighth street late on
Wednesday evening. Genda Singh
cue of the swarthy Hindus, feeling
slightly hungry dropped Into the eating joint and ordered a meal. Not
naming the particular brand ot the
canned stuff. Matenskl, the Jap
waiter. Immediately hoisted a plate
of beef and onions before the Hindu.
Whether Matenskl was aware of
caste proceedings which accompany
a Hindu eating meat is unknown, but
the fact remains that Genda broke
out with a conglomeration of English-
Hindu language to which Matenskl
took  umbrage,
With visions of the glorious vie
tcries attained by Nogl before Port
Arthur the genial "Togo"' ceased
clearing the dishes away long enough
to larrup the audacious Hindu on the

(Continued from page one)
Tbe  magistrates, after    discussing
tbe case, decided that there was   no |
-grounds for a charge of murder and

Wong Hop, ono of the witnesses,

rumors which were done for no other
reason than to hurt his (Mr. Leafs)
chances lor election.
Mr. Leaf mentioned the time when
Mr. Coldleutt, then a green man on
the council, had come to him for advice and he had always got it. Mr.
Leaf has since found out that many
he thought were friends were really
his enemies and those whom he dm
not know, were really his friends
were standing by him.
"I have made a success as a business man," stated Mr. Leaf, "a.nd

cf being a success as councillor
when  I am elected on Saturday.'1
Mr. Leaf was strongly in favor of
a minimum wage of $3 a day for
eight hours and was one of the first
to take this stand displte the fact
that his opponents also claimed that
plank in their platforms. As for the
ward system, he was against its abolition, but thought there should be a
readjustment. In closing, he attacked Mr, Coldleutt for his alleged
switch in support from Mr. B. 0,
Walker to    that    of Councillor    Mc
Alderman-Elect   Bryson.
Mr. J. S. Hryson was naturally
much gratified with ills success at
the poll last night, especially In view
of the healthy opposition he was
forced to meet. Speaking to a representative of The "News last night he
expressed his thanks to all those who
had seen fit to give him their support
"Of course we have had our differences," Mr. BryBon said, "but I will
endeavor to co-operate with Mayor
Gray and the other aldermen ln the
administration of the city's affairs.

"It was just a case of an endorsement of the policy inaugurated by the
1912 council," stated Alderman White,
who haa been elected for another
year,  when seen  last night.
"AS far as I can see the people
have endorsed the carrying out of
thc work which they authorized last
year by passing the money by-laws.
I am exceedingly gratified with the
result of the poll and cordially thank
all those who gave me their support,"
concluded the alderman.
Mr. George Kennedy.
George Kennedy, who failed of election, hy only 86 votes, received the
returns In his office with a number
of friends and business associates.
When seen by The News he stated
that lie waa much gratified at the
election of Mr. Bryson, as he con-
s dered him pre-eminently entitled to
the victory if the people wished to
make a protest against the extravagance of the last council.
"Mr- Bryson Is a true and tried al
derman, having served for two years,
and w.ll undoubtedly make a good
member of the city council for 191J
So far as I personally am concerned.
I am very thankful to the ratepayers

According to the above statment,
one Is led to believe that Aston Villa
did not as much as receive an Invitation to tour the Dominion; but be that
as it may, the decision of the well-
know professionals will be received
In this country with much regret, for
there Is no club In the old land that
would receive a more hearty reception here than Aston Villa, who at the
present time are showing remarkable
form in the English league. On the
face of It, it seems cruel to spread
such reports without some official authority, for It means tbat those who
have been looking forward to seeing
a wonderful football machine in action are doomed to biter disappointment.
What F. A. Secretary Says.
Hack of the Vlllans' announcement,
comes an Important letter from P. J.
Wall, secretary of the Football Association, dated Dee, 24, 1912, ln the
course of wblcb be says:
"I am aware that at present there
Is a probability of an English team
visiting Canada.
"Until an assoc'at'on Is formed In
Canada which can be recognized, arrangements cannot be mad* for our
clubs to visit Canada. -I may say,
however, that I have recently bad Interviews with Mr. F. Barter, ot Montreal, who is now on a visit to Kng-
and. He Is taking, as It seems to me.
very proper steps to bring the clubs In
Canada together and to form an association under the title of The Dominion of Canada Football Association,
which will embrace and control both
the amateur and professional sides ol
tbe game on similar lines to our organization. If Mr. Barter's efforts are
meeting wltb aproval in Canada, it is
probable that In the very near future
a National Association of Canada may
be recognized. Believe me, yours
truly, "F.  J.  WALL."

the   phenomenonk  of yesterday?
Answering tbe latter question, it
may be said that most of them are still
ln the bush leagues. The fireside
faun demand sustenance and so each
winter brings Its crop of comers who
are greater than Ty Cobb. Statistics,
always dull, dry and Bad, prove that
not one In a dozen of the great fmdn
make good in fast company. Ot the
score of players that will be tried out
in the next few months, only a handful will be found good enough for a
place on a big league salary list, while
the majority of them could not stick
In the International league or the
American association, and not a few
would find the pace too fast in a Class
0. League.
Heartbreaking disappointments are
coming to a lot of lads who are now
dreaming dreams that will never be
realized. 'Tls sad. 'tis very sad, bul
then, as Mr. Schopenhauer, the German highbrow, has remarked, "life is
very sad at best."
Half a century ago Mike Donovan,
the sturdy old fighter, enlisted ln tbe
71st Illinois regiment and marched
away to the front to begin his career
as a battler. After the war he became
a pugllsit, and won his way to the top
ot the middleweight heap.
"After scrapping with a gun," said
Prof. Mike recently, "fighting with
bare fists seemed easy, and boxing
with gloves a real luxury." For nearly
30 years Donovan has taught the
manly art to the members of the New
York Athletic club.

Victor Hollaender, one of the composers of "A Modern Eve" coming
to the Opera House Friday evening,
Jan. 24, was associated with the Me-
tropole Theatre of Berlin as composer for fifteen years, and during that
time he i-rave j.he German capital
twenty successful operas. "A Modern Eve" gave blm his first American hearing���with the exception of
the  music   to   "Sumurun."
A grand opera of his composition
Is now being considered by the Metropolitan Opera House Company, of
New Yorlf City. Jean Gilbert, whose
name is linked with Hollaender's on
the program of "A Modern Eve," Is
known to playgoers through the
score of "Modest Suzanne" In which
Sallle Fisher starred last season.
Another piece of his composition.
"The Polish Wedding," has Just recently been produced. Martin Beck
and Mort H. Singer, who produced
"A Modern Eve," will follow lt with
Gilbert's "Autollebohen."
The ��altr.. "Goodbye" "Everybody"
and the ballad, "A Lonesome Moon,"
ln "A Modern Eve," coming to the
Opera House, Friday, Jan. 24. represent the melodic touch of Jean Gilbert. The rest of the score, except
for some concerted passages, belongs
to Victor Hollaender.

Hockey is something like football,
only more so, says an English writer
wbo witnessed his first game about
ten days ago. The difference ls that
the hockey player assaults his foe-
man with skates instead of cleats.
Technically, the object of the game
is to clout a little animile known
as a puck with a bow-legged club
and shove it into an Inciosure Known
as a goal. But in the beat of com
bat, the puck is forgotten, and thc
club is wielded with great nerve and
enthusiasm on the toeman's skull.
Hockey requires conBumate skill,
lt demands a fine sense of equilibrium to maintain one's balance
while skating on an opponent's ear
and kicking him in the slats at one
and the same time.
Hockey is popular In Canada,
where lumberjacks are numerous and
human life ls comparatively cheap.
Hockey is one of our most healthful sports If one manages to live
through It. It is not advisable for
invalids to play the game unless they
are resigned to the next world and
carry  heavy  Insurance.

court in a civilized country is, for all
purposes, conclusive upon us In con
.-tlderation of such cases, it is proper
to add that the alien admits tbe circulation of the libel; that at this,
trial no evidence was offered to substantiate the charge, and that Mrs
Napier, her father and brother, and
other witnesses testified to its falslt)
without contradiction or cross-examination. '        ,
The sole argument for treating this
offence aB purely political is that the
writer of the article and Mr. Mylius,
intended It as an attack upon a
phase of the monarchlal Institution,
and that the crown, in its proceeding
treated it as a political offence."
Mr. Nagel said that tbe accepted
definition of "political offence" seemed to hold that it waB necessary to
show something in the nature of concerted action and tbat the alleged
crime lacked this  character.
Mr. Nagel said that If an avowed
motive of purpose served to give an
act the required political character,
there is no crime which cannot be
provided with the proper coloring by
the offender himself. Only appeal to

Workmen  Decorated  at   Buckingham
Palace���Medals Conferred  Upon
Widows of Brave Men.
I.ondon, Jan. 16.���The king received
many heroes recently at Buckingham palace, and warmly congratulated them on their courage. He
shook hands with each and personally
affixed the various medals. There was
happily, no speech-making.
For their efforts to rescue fellow
workmen from a long gas flue at the
works ot the Barrow Hematite Steel
Company, Barrow-in-Furness, Harry
Parsons was decorated with the Ed
ward Medal ot the first-class, and
Ernest Cannell, Thomas Evans aud
John Robinson with the Edward medal
jf the second class.
On Aug. 4 a workman who was engaged In cleaning tt, entered the flue
contrary to orders to recover a
broken rake. He was at once overcome by gas, and so were two fellow-
workmen���William Ackred and Geo.
Bagnall who went to his assistance,
Henry Parsons twice entered the flue
at great risk of, his life, and, with the
help ot Ernest Cannell, Thomas Evans
and John Robinson, succeeded In
bringing out the three men but all
three lost their lives.
To the widows of William Ackred
and George Bngnell the King has
awarded the Edward Medal of the sec
ond-class. Edward Medals of the second-class were presented to Henry
Saunders and Alexander Griffiths, un
der the following circumstances:
On Sept 30 Tmomas Richards and
another workmen were engaged In repairing an air road at Graham's navl
gatlon, No. 9 pit. Sirhowy, by taking
down a low portion of the roof, known
to miners as a "bridge." This
"bridge" was about 10 feet long and
nearly 12 feet thick, and at one end of
it the road below was nearly blocked
by fallen debris. In order to do his
work. Richards made a small hole In
the debris and went through It, but as
he was returning a piece fell and pinned him fast ln thc hole. His mate

Every Ship Brings More to   London,
Where They Are Treated on Level
With Whites,
London, Jan. 16.���The Evening
Standard today gave prominence to
a statement by an anonymous manager of a London detective agency giving warning of the danger of "an Invasion of England by negroes, especially American, which had proceeded
steadily for two years."
This agency says that its Investigation of the white slave traffic has
brought lt into contact with "Englishmen's traditional tolerance of the difference of color, race and creed, which
has blinded them to danger which ls
now  threatening  them.
London 1b the paradise of the black
man, and the American negro has discovered this fact. Every ship rrom
the United States brings fresh arriv
Bis to swell the large colony which Is
already here, where they are treated
on equal footing at the lodging houses
and boarding houses and sit at the
same table with whites.
For the first time ln their lives
they are permitted to mix with white
women on social equality. This has
created a grave peril, which is becoming worse every day."

American Traders Send Their Product
Over the Line���Tariff Cannot
Ottawa, Jan. 16.���The newest thing
ln trade troubles Is the conduct of the
egg, more especially the United States
egg, product of the prolific American
hen.   It is coming Into Canada.
Representations made to the government Indicate that tho advent of the
United States egg uud<-r existing circumstances is viewed with alarm by
Canadian egg interests.
The egg trade across the border appears to be in a somewhat disorganized condition, seemingly due to the
efforts of housekeepers' leagues ln
making war on high prices. The situation Is abnormal.
Eggs are Bald to be selling ln several in several cities close to tbe
border at prices far below what It cost
to buy and store them. Egg men on
this side of the line have a winter's
supply procured atp rices several
cents higher than those now being
charged at the border.
The suggestion has been made that
the dumping duty In the Canadian
tariff be applied to the American egg,
or that the Canadian and American
egg tariffs be temporarily equalized,
the Canadian duty being two cents
It does not appear that the Importation of the cheaper eggs could be
discouraged even If such a course
were thought desirable.
The dumping clause only applies
where the import price in Canada is
lower than the fair market price ln
the country of origin. It would, in
such case, apply to eggs as well as to
anything else.

Has Body Cremated and Uses
It as Set for Ring.
London. Jan. 10.���An Ingenious
method of disposing of tho ashes of a
cremated body has been recorded.
After a woman had been cremated the
husband took the ashes to a chemist
for the purpose of extracting the iron,
Which he is now wearing set in his
ring as one woud wear a diamond.
The amount of Iron In a human
body, acordlng to the statement of a
well-known analytical chemist, Is at
best very small���a matter of grains���
and It varies very much according to
the state of health.
Anaemic people have very slight
traces of Iron In their bodies, but In
normal persons there Is enough to
as it has been used, in place of a
stone In u ring.
The London Cremation Company
has knowledge of the case of a woman
who always carried the ashes of her
late husband about with her, and gave
instructions that when her end came
her body was to be cremated and the
ashes mixed with those of her husband.
With the growth in the number o1
cremation cases it Is becoming quite it
usual practice to have the ashes compressed Into a small tablet, with a

Billion   Dollars   Required This Year
Owing to Increased Coat of Three
New York, Jan. 16.���A cable to the
Tribune from London says: The cost
of running the United Kingdom for
the next twelve months will amount
to the colossal sum of ��200,000,000
($1,000,000,000). The navy cetlmates
alone will reach an aggregate of almost $250,000,000 This increase of
upward of $20,000,000 ts due to many
causes, but chiefly to the higher coBt
of ship building.
AU contracts that have been lately
placed and that will bsve to be placed
in the near future reflect this movement. The calculated cost ef constructing an ordinary merchant vessel has advanced more than 300 per
- cent In the last two years, and tn the
case of warships the difference Ib
proving not less remarkable.
Everything required by the admiralty, guns, torpedoes, armor, ships'
plates, all show advances. The period
of cheap shlp-bulldlng from which the
country gained an Immense advantage
has come to an end.
The army estimates will also show
an Increase, and there will be heavy
carges ln civic service estimates for
old age pensions, labor bureaus and

London, Jan. 16.���It would not be
fair to take one or two Isolated Instances of obviously open criticism
and found thereon a sweeping indictment of the administration of Justice
In this or any other country.
But some Englishmen are themselves Just now criticizing several
cases ln which the highly-vaunted
British Justice has been administered
in a fttuhlon whloh If reported, as occurring ln any other country would
have been the subject for much scathing comment. British Justice and its
administration have often been generously praised by other countries, bnt
the cases now referred to certainly
Justify all the criticism they are getting.
In the first place there ls whnt Is
known as the Eastborune murder
case. In this case a man ha*, be**! arrested, tried, found gJlli/, within so
extremely brief time and aftc- 1 Utmost rapid trial. -,
All this was done wltn l\n tliftP's
name as "Williams." The polio admitted that tbey knew '.liat th �� ��� ho
not the man's real name. They alto
admitted that they knew his real
name, but did not announce It
Outside of the police there xvs-ro
practically only three witnesses In the
case, the murderer's young mislnw,
his brother, wbo admitted.that ho gave
evidence under the assumed name of
Willams, and another man. vuo also
gave evidence under a false name.
Both the men witness aro now
known to be of unsavory chancer.
They were known to tne polico. in
such a manner that their iv/:di-nee
would naturally be regarded nr, mint
ed if their records had been k-.own.
No Question ot Fscts.
There was no question about the
condemned msn shooting the police
man, who waa on the point of arresting him. It was also admitted that
the condemned man was in the not of
entering a house through a Window
when the officer attacked aim*, hut

bas been   sstabUs!       between
mailing a very wealthy member of the
House of Commons on the strength of
knowledge of bis depraved life.
Herein lt is suggested may be found
tho reason for tbe secrecy, the mystery, the haste and the suppression of
facts which lt Is charged have characterised all tbe proceedings of tbe
police In tbe lower courts.
Futhsr  Trouble.
The Home Secretary. Reginald Mc-
Kenna, has bad further trouble with
this case. A few days after "Williams" bad been condemned to death
his young mistress, who evidently
was devoted to him, became a mother.
From tbe time of his arrest until
tbe day of the birth of her child she
and "Williams" had begged tbe Home
Secretary to be alowed to marry In
order to legitimise the child, and the
Home Secretary haa been considerably
criticised for hie curt refusal.
It Is widely charged now that this
suppression of names in the lower
court ls a growing evil in England,
and Is contrary In most cases to the
true ends of Justice..
A new drastic law aimed st the
suppression of tha white elave traffic
has Just been put ln force. Under the
provisions of this law men whp benefit pecuniarily by women's life of
shams are liable to the lash.
The d��y the act came Into force
crowds of such man were warned out
of England and fled to the Continent.
Tbe supporters of the Act saw In this
evidence of the ���ftlelMOjr ol the set,
but the flret case emder It before a
London magistrate raised on outcry
because the Barnes of the prisoner,
the victim and ell the witnesses were
suppressed. 4
It is admitted that the feelings of
the victim might deeerve consideration, but In the MM of the accused
and the witnesses Justice might here
been handicapped by the secrecy
either to the detriment of the accused
or "the people," for publicity In such
case might bring to light evidence
which would materially affect the, defence or the preesonUon.
The Com ef Knox.
It ls surprising, too, how comparatively slight notlM hM been token of
the extmordlnary procedure In the
pass of, Knox, the engineer of the
Nortb-Ustorn Railway, whose reduction In rank, amounting to a loss of s
oouple of dollars a week, after he had
been found guilty of drunkenness,
caused ��� strike on thst railroad.
It le simply undeniable that Knox
wee found guilty on evidence that
would have Insured his conviction In
any court tn the world, but the Home
secretary wm teeed with labor
trouble at Christmas time, and sent
��� magistrate who was ot equal standing, but not of higher grade, than
those who had tried Knox to give a
rehearing In the ceee.
This magistrate conducted an Informal Inquiry Marly two months
after toe event wHhoet the safegnsrd
of administering oaths to witnesses
end without etriot regard to the laws
of evidence.
Yet on hie verdict the Home Secretory, without ooasaUing the magistrates who had tried the ceee, gave
Knox a frae pai-don. "It le difficult to
sxaggrato the seriouaeas of thla in-
terfsreaca with the ordinary course

Dally Mall la Accused of Publishing
London, Jan. 16.��� Unionist unrest is
more superficial than real. The Daily
Express accuses the Daily Mail of publishing a wilful falsehood by announcing "death of food taxes." It goes on
to say:
"It would be interesting to know by
what process of imagination Lord
Northcliffe has come to the conclusion
that a decision declaring the death of
food taxes has been arrived at.
It is on a par with the whole course
of this anti-Unionist campaign by the
Journals under the control of Lord
Northcliffe, whose range of literary
activity ls wide enough to Include
"Answers," "The Times." "Horner's
Penny Stories," "The Daily Mall,"
"Comic Cuts," "Forget Me Not," "The
Daily Mirror," "The Evening News,"
"The Boys' Friend," "Chips," "Fanny
Eden's Penny Stories" and "The
Weekly Dispatch."
"We think enough has now been
said to show the Unionist party what
it may expect In: the future from tho
newspaper trust."
