Vancouver Company Will Supply Clam Shell Bucket at
Cost of $7000���Government Refuse Fire Hall Site on
Lulu Island���Alderman Bryson Raises Protest to Recent Appointments.
The recommendation of Mr. A. O.
l'owell, harbor engineer, to grant a
contract for further equipment to be
used on the harbor Improvement work,
the receipt of a communication from
the minlBter of lands, Mr. W. It. Hush.
turning down the request of the city
for a fire hall site on Lulu Island as
the government required all the provincial land on the IbIhiiiI for Jail purposes, the receipt of a letter from the
l,ocal Council of Women sugeatlng
that boys under 12 years of age be
prohibited from selling papers, the licensing of newsboys and the keeping
of all young boys off the street at
night, and a sharp dtscuBsion over an
hjeet Ion raised by Alderman Hryson
to the appointment of Mr. K. Mallen
and Mr. A. Gray to the city hall staff
without a full vote of tho council being taken firBt, comprised the main
features of the council meeting yeBter-
day afternoon.
Harbor Equipment
With regard to the harbor Improvement equipment. Alderman White, the
chairman of the harbor committee, tn
traduced a resolution to the effect that
the harbor engineer be authorized to
accept the tender of tbe Dominion
Equipment and Supply Company of
Vancouver, for one two yard digging,
clam shell bucket and dredge Irons
complete, excepting steel rope, for a
sum not exceeding $7000, was adopted
wltb but the dissenting voice of Alderman Ilryson.
This Is a further step In connection with tbe purchase of the equipment to be used on tbe harbor improvement work. At the last meeting
of the couneil tenders aggregating In
value 1130,000 were ordered awarded.
Refuse Fire Hall Site.
Tho letter from the provincial minlBter of lands read to the effect that
the writer regretted that it would be
impossible to entertain the request of
the council for a fire hall site lu
Queensborough inasmuch aa thr hon.
attorney general had advised that all
of the provincial land on Lulu Island
would be required for thc jail garden
which lt Ib proposed to carry on to a
greater extent than beforo with prison
labor. The communication was referred to the fire committee who will
deal with it later.
The litter from the Ixical Council
of Women suggesting the enacting of
a law remaining regulations regarding
the sale of newspapers by boys waB referred to the police committee to report.
li was suggested that newsboys be
licensed and wear official badges as
Is done in a number of the eastern
oltlos. The letter waB signed by Mips
M. K. Strong, secretary of the Women's Council.
Raises  Protest.
lt was the In' -oductlon of the following report, ultimately adopted, by
Alderman Kellington, chairman of the
finance committee, that raised the objections of  Alderman   Bryson  to  the
appointment of W. K. Mallen and A.
Gray to the staff of the city hall without a vote of the council being taken
previous to the making of the appointments which occurred several days
That A. Gray has been appointed
purchase ledger keeper and assistant
In the accounting department at the
salary of $100 per month.
That W. K. Mallen has been appointed general clerk In the accounting department at a salary of $75 per month.
Alderman BryBon's firBt question
was aB to who had given the authority
for the appointments. Waa it not the
UBual custom, he further asked, to advertise when positions were open ln
the city hall and let the council Select
from among the applicants the men
most suitable for the  poeitionB?
Many ratepayers had stopped him
on thc streets, he Bald, with the complaint that their sons had not been
given an opportunity to apply for the
positions. The alderman closed his
statements, wblch precipitated the discussion, by moving an amendment that
Alderman Kelllngton's motion be rejected and that the positions be advertised in the regular manner. This
amendment was later seconded by Alderman Henley, who admitted later
that his aim In doing so was to bring
the matter to a head.
In reply to Alderman Bryson, Alder-
I man Kellington stated that the mover
lot   the   amendment had made some
; statements   that  he   had   either  not
\ thought about, or that were incorrect.
He asked Alderman Bryson to reeol-
' lect that an Increase In tb* Btaff of
tho city treasurer's office had been
provided (or In the estimates and thlt
| the appointments had been left In
the  hand* of the  chairman  of the   fi-
! nance  cnmrolttee  with   power  to  acl
"What  wo want anyway," said  the
nlileriiuin, "Is efficiency nnd both those
men are highly recommended by the j
i city treasurer and the city auditors.
Thinks It  Illegal.
Alderman   Bryson   staled   that   he
knew   the changes  were  to  he  made
but that no names were mentioned.
"I think It is Illegal," he charged,
"unless the appointments are confirmed by the council before the appointees
take office. A good many of us know
why theBe men were put ln IK-Ste,"
and here the alderman made mention
! of lacrosse and hockey.
Mayor Gray drew  attention  to the
I fact that tho council had given Alder-
I man Kellington power to act in connection with tho appointments.
Alderman Dodd���Do I understand
that we have got to call for applica-
| Urns when positions are vacant? I
think that is a moBt wretched way of
j conducting business. For my part 1
would leave that to the heads of each
! department.
Alderman Kellington here offered to

; corresponding sum  to  any charitable

Over 500 New Names Bringing Total to Over
Court of Revision on May 20���Protests
Must  Be in  One  Month
The number of people qualified to
vote in the electoral district of New
WeBtmlnster city at any election, provincial or Dominion, during the next
bIx monthB is 3500, an Increase of
practically 500 on the number qualified under the old lists now discarded.
These figures are the eBtimats of
Mr. 8. A. Fletcher, provincial government agent, made last night when the
time limit set for the registration of
all voters on the new list came to a
conclusion and are a fair indication of
the growth of the city during tbe past
year or two.
Interviewed last night members of
both the Liberal and Conservative parties in this cily expressed themselves
as completely satisfied with the result of the strenuous canvass which
they conducted for names to place on
tbe new lists. Though a gratifying increase of names to the list haa been
made, it Is felt that many who were
qualified to register, either through
neglect or lack of knowledge of the
circumstances under which they were
required to register themselvcB, failed
to do so. They therefore lose all say
In any election that might occur in
the next six months.
A court of revision  on  the names
subscribed to tbe list in this electoral
district  will  be held  In  this city on
May 20.    All objections to names on
the list must be forwarded to the government agent here 30 days before the
court of revision Is held and the agent
gives all those whose names have been
protested   20   days'   notice   In   order
j to enable them to be present at the
i sitting to Bupport their right to be on
! tbo list.
Following the court of revision the
names will be sent to Victoria and
1 left In the hands of the King's printer.
It Is expected that the lists complete
wllh every fully qualified voter ln the
province recorded will be published
some time in August.
Though last night was set as the
time limit In which any person could
register on tho new list It dots not
necessarily mean that any new applications will be refused, but any new
names contributed from now ou will

court is held the applicants will he unable to vote.

Buainess Affected.
Nelson, April 7.���The Nelson strike
Is spreading. Tomorrow, according to
present arrangements, the carpenters
wlll Join the strikers, and there la a
possibility that the retail clerks will
also quit work. At preaent the carpenters are the only building trade
workers not on strike. As most of
the drivers of delivery rigs are members of the Retail Clerks' union, the
effect of the clerks' strike would be to
make the purchase and delivery of
provisions difficult
On Saturday the Doukhobor society
purchased tlie business of the Kootenay Ice & Fuel Company, whose
teamsters are at present on strike,
and they arc roported to be negotiating for the purchase of tbe transfer
business. A large number of Doukhobors arrived in town today and they
will Btart delivering coal at once, replacing the teamsters now on strike.
The board of health has ordered
the sanitary inspector to Bee that the
collection of garbage continues as,
owing to the strike of the teamsters, j
the work has been at a standstill. If
the striking teamsters refuse to work,
it ls Bald to be the determination of
the city to hire others, whether members of the union or not.

YcBterday an additional 3,000,000
eggB were released at the Harrison
Lake hatchery of the Dominion government whicb brings the total to .the
huge number of 8,000,000.
These white fish eggs are secured
from the waters of Lake Erie and the
Dominion hatchery at Porl Arthur and
are brought across the continent In
specially constructed tanks.
According to Mr. F. II. Cunningham.
Dominion Inspector of fisheries for
I thlo province, Harrison lake was se-
! lected as being the most suitable ex-
| pause of fresh water ln this section of
the province on account of there being
very few trout there, which to a certain extent are enemies of the White
flsh and eat the eggs when the flsh
are spawning. This, however, applies
to any Bpecles of fish who prey on
their brethren of the finny tribe for
moans of suBtentatlon.
Lake Erie ts regarded as the hunting ground of the white fish In the
cast, although they are to be caught
ln Lake Superior and Georgian Bay.
The average weight of the flsh is four
pounds  when  properly  matured.
The eggB which have been placed
at tha Harrison lake hatchory, will
be later turned Into the lake when
the evolution of thc egg Into the flsh
has taken place; Tt will take about four
years for the fish to gain mature

Once more the trees are budding, once more the flowers are raising their heads to the sunshine, and once again,
children young and old, are looking forward to their red
letter event, the crowning of the May Queen and the revels
of May Day.
We are glad to note that the city fathers have already
most generously set apart the sum of $300 as their contribution towards the funds which are subscribed to at large
by the citizens and are gathered in by a band of workers
who are deserving of the greatest commendation for their
labor of love which is repeated steadily year after year.
At last year's celebration several welcome and pleasing departures were mads, and we understand that this
vear the standing committee of the May Day, which has
-been working steadily all the year round, will bring in a
report upon further suggestions for the improvement of
the great children's event.
The membership of the May Day committee has always been, and still is, open to all those citizens who desire
to take a hand in the work of preparing to give the children of New Westminster and their visitors from the surrounding district the time of their lives. We therefore
hope that the meeting of the general May Day committee
which is to be held on Wednesday evening in the Board of
Trade rooms will be largely attended, and that this year
tkcre will be mounted still higher steps in the ladder of

we state that those who devote their time, their energies'

��� THE   HUMAN   PROCESSION.    ���
��� (By 0.  Terence.) ���
Church Losing in England, Says Rev.
Meyer,  66  Today.
That the churches of all denominations are rapidly losing ground in Kng
land was lhe recent admission of the
Rev. Frederick Brotherton, secretary
and former president of the National
Federation of Free Churches, an organization representative of nearly all
iho non-cotnformlst denominations.
The Rej. Meyer, who will celebrate
his sixty-sixth birthday today, Is England's most eloquent and scholarly
Baptist churchman, and his position
enables him to speak with authority
on tho alleged decadence of Christian
Ity In John Bull's Island. He recently joined with the Bishop of London
In asking the Umdon News and Lender to desist from the project of taking
a religious cenaus of Ixindon, and both
the Baptist and Anglican leaders admitted to a fear that such a counting
of noseB might show discouraging figures.
Thc Rev. Meyer has found a constant decrease In church-going In Ixin-
don, while the population ot the city
is steadily increasing. The spirit of
worlillineiis, ho declares, affects all
classes. Sports, motoring, and weekend parties largely occupy the attention of tho wealthy, while the growth
of SoclalUm Is alienating the poor.
Tho propaganda work steadily carried on by a rationalist association
which haa circulated millions of copies of scientific and antl-rellgious
R-crks, has also made agnoBtica and
doubters out of thousands of former
"hristiai'a. The Rev. Meyer entered
the ministry In 1S70, and Is tho author
Of "Messed Are Ye," "Israel," Reveres and Realities" and several other
wld-.ly-read books.
The latest number of the School Magazine, that for
January, 1913, is easily on a par with its predecessors. It
contains the concluding instalment of a story dealing with
�� day on a torpedo boat destroyer, written by her commander.
' The thrilling experience���for the destroyer is engaged in mimic warfare���is capably told, and gives a vivid description of what life must lie like aboard these engines of
destruction. Under the caption of "Historical Comparisons," Mr. Give Phillips-WoUey, the editor, tells of thei
first ^reat episode in British naval history, pointing his
moral by showing that at the time of the defeat of the
Armada London was little larger than the Victoria of to-!

Tho rather sad history of Thomas
Douglas, Earl of Selkirk, who, In
April 8th, 1820, died at Pau In his
fiftieth year, is Intimately connected
with this country. As a youth Douglas attended the University of Edinburgh, where he made friends with
Walter Scott.
After leaving college, he took a
tour through tho Highlands of Scotland, and there witnessed a misery
and poverty which he was never able
to forget, and no sooner had he succeeded to his father's estate than he
began to assist some of tho downtrodden peasants to emigrate to British North Amercia.
He planted his first colony In Prince
Edward Island; his second, near Chatham In Upper Canada, and his third
(most famous of the three) on the
Red River. The first colony, of 800
Highlanders, was upon the whole successful.
The second was situated somewhat

then swampy and Inaccessible; but

London's oldest theatre, which is
also the most venerable playhouse in
th" English-speaking world, thej
Drury Lane, will celebrate the 250th |
innlversary of Its opening today. It
was on the eighth day of April, In

Melbourne, April 7.���During the
courBe of a banquet given Saturday
nlgbt to the officers of the dreadnought New Zealand, now In thla port,
tho governor-general Of Australia,
Lord Denman, made a splendid speech
on the naval policy. "The belief
that Australia Intends to use her warships only in the Pacific Is entirely erroneous," be said, "and Judging from
the utterances of the public men of
Australia tbis w-iy not be the .-base.
"Should thenv arise any serious
crisis our ships/will co-operato with
tho mother country wherever and
whenever the danger is most formidable."
The attorney-general, Hon. William
Hughes, declared that preparations
for war were necessary, although lt
was a tragic reflection on civilization
when Christian nations wore preparing to deBtroy each other. Nevertheless, ho continued, the position was
not Australia's making, an ; she would
be doubly fctupld If she did not realize
her position hy failing to make all
preparations for trouble.

placed on the brotherhood of man.

National Pride.
Consideration of naval strategy,
alone, he said, might make tho policy
v'or of a~Poficy"of of concentration desirable. But there
are other considerations which have
to be borne in mind. The consideration of naval development and national pridp is far more important than
naval strategy. The importance of
thla development of national prid-.i
haa been recognized in Australia.
In that commonwealth a local fleet
has heen established, serving both
Australia and 'hn empire as a whole.
Indeed Sir Wilfrid stated, Ihe admiralty Itself has always held that
while il might advise ns lo strategical
considerations, the political side of
Hie naval question in the overseas
dominions must always lip lefl entirely
of self-confidence and self-reliance
which has characterized the Canadian
The bill, he went on to say, Involved
the question of concentration on one
hand and expansion on the other, a
question which has In the past always
I been settled In
i expansion. The problem of defence,
| Sir Wilfrid Baid, had been with us
since the early days of Confederation.
j Sir John Macdonald had stood for the
building up of Canada as an auxiliary
i to the United Kingdom, but it had
j never entered his mind that Canadians
i chnuld pay tribute to the British army
nr the British navy. Once upon a time,
he said this great Question had been
free from party prejudice. On that
occasion parliament decided unanimously In favor of llie organization of
the Canadian. It cannot be presumed
that any di parture from that policy
ean be an improvement upon it.
When parliament acted in 1909 it
was embodying the voice of duty both
Imperial and Canadian. It is now proposed to set this policy aside. We are
told lhat this is not so and that the
present proposal is one to meet nn
emergency. But who talks seriously
of an emergency uow? The light has
been let upon it.
We believe the words of th:? statesmen of Great Britain that the rela-*
tions between the mother country and
Oermany    were    never more  cordial
than now.    The first lord of the admiralty has told us at least a dozen
times  that  C.reat  Britain  can  defeat
hi r    foes.      (Conservative  laughter.)
"That statement, is received with derisive laughter by members opposite,
but is there anyone who will say that
England  ia not. the equal on sea of
| any nation on the earth" he asked
May Be Recession.
Sir Wilfrid went on to say tint Ihe
secretary of the German   navy   had
made a statement which leads us to
relieve thai there may be a cessation
I of Ihe mad race fnr naval supremacy.
' All  recent  developments  go  to  show
thai the policy of the Canadian navy is
, more  than  ever the true  solution of
tbe problem which confronts the empire.    The admiralty has adopted a po-
: lie/ or concentration, leaving the overseas unprotected.
if the overseas Dominions relieve
llreiit Britain of the work of guarding
thCBe : eas there could be no doul t of
the result of the struggle between
Greal Britain and Oermany alone. Sir
Wilfrid then quoted from the proceedings of the imperial conference, the
agreement arrived at as to where the
Australian ami Canadian fh'ps would
be stationed and what seas they were
to guard.
if the present policy was adopted,
ho said, the Canadian vessels would
have headquarters at Gibraltar and
be used anywhere In the world. It. was ,
quite apparent that the Canadian naval proposal has been set aside. The
government had not. made an open
avowal of Its policy because such action would arouse the spirit of the
Canadian people even among the Conservative party, in support of this
contention, Sir Wilfrid quoted an editorial from the Ottawa Evening Journal declaring against the policy of
permanent contribution. He then
quoted from the speech made by Ihe
pp mil r on Dec. 6 in Introducing thn
bill, his statement to the effect thai
nothing of nn effective charaoter In
; the way of a navy could lie built with-
iin BO years and Unit then ll would lie
a poor and weak substitute for the
'. British  navy.

if Mr. Borden was of the same opinion  in  1909 ns in 1912, lie must  have

There could be no question about this
Turning to tho naval resolution o'
1909 Mr. Borden declared that the
government's present proposal was a
departure from the spirit of that reso
lution. In 1909 he had suggested that
the contribution should be made tr
the empire should an emergency arise
Thia suggestion was-embodied In tin
resolution in a modified form. We be

Moreover, It was significant that all

Premier  llorden.  Sir Wilfrid  went
on, had declared that he desired Can
ada lo have  a voice In questions    Of

he had opened up a discussion of tremendous importance.    How and when

Tiie only proposal so far has been
'��� that Canada should have representation In the Imperial defence committee But again and again we have been
told that this committee ennnot have
more than an advlBory voice. That
the lli-IUsh government cannot share
its responsibility In mattera of policy.

Paris, April 7.���The questions of
tbe nationality of Christopher Columbus, and where he was born, continue to prove an inexhaustible subject ot dlBCUSBlon tor historians aud
The lateBt contribution to the debate comeB from a French writer
Henri Schoen, who brings forward a
number of new arguments in support of the tradition that Christopher
Columbus waB born at Calvl, In Corsica. This tradition is, of course, in
direct contradiction to the theory
that |he discoverer of America was
of Genoese birth, and it is also contrary to the views of such learned
Spaniards as de la Riega and tbe
Marquis de Dob Fuentes, who maintain that ColumbUB, or Colon, according to the Spanish form of the name,
was in reality a native of Calicia, in
Spain, a fact which ho always concealed with the object of hiding his
Jewish origin.
The Spanish investigators, while
arguing against the claims of the
Italians for Genoa, join hands with
them in attacking the theorieB of
Schoen. The French writer bases his
argument on certain names and other
details that appear in the narative of
Columbus, ln this recital, which is
written In the purest of Spanish, one
party sees Galician and the otber
Genoese reminiscences, while Schoen
finds support for hia Corsican theory.
He points out, for instance, that Columbus refers to fishes called "toni-
nas," a word equally unknown in
Italy and Spain, but of everyday UBe
In Corsica.
To this the Spanish philologist, Mariano de Cavia, replies that, on the
contrary, the word "tonina" is gener-

of the North Staffordshire Art Society
at Stoke recently, said they would be

She adjured them us artists to fling
away prejudice. It required ns much
courage to be an artlBt ns an aviator.
The latter lost his nerve in from one to

his nerve at one exhibition.

Search has been made everywhere
for these medals, but not one of them
has come to light. Old Ontario families who had distinguished members
ongaged in the war have none preserved among their heirlooms; none of
the historical societies has the medal
ln its collection; and but for the tlme-
Htained record of the proceedings of
the general meeting of the Society
I held In the Church of York on May
il, 1R15, there Is no evidence that such
I medals were ever ordered.
The minutes of the meeting relate
[that five hundred medals were order-!

to l^mdon, where, ln tbe course of
