Ottawa, Jan. 14.-��� Hugh Outhrie
(South Wellington) ln continuing the
debate on the naval bill ln the House
this afternoon said that it was hardly
appropriate after the Christmas holidays to plunge into a debate' which
was contrary, to the whole spirit of
the season of "peace on earth and
good will toward men." He had still
vividly before his mind the eloquent
speech of Hon. George E. Foster, Just
before the House rose on December
Mr. Foster was a sort of political
revivalist In the Conservative   party
Between December 5, when the naval
proposals were brought    down,   and
December 18', the spirits of the government members had been lagging.

be made to have everything on the

It was decided to give the members
of tbe Incoming council a banquet on
January SI. A motion was passed
congratulating Alderman Gray on bis
election by acclamation to the mayoralty.
Mr. John F. Richardson, head of
the C. P. R. Telegrarh Company In
Vancouver, gave assurance that the
company would - leave, ita present
office on Columbia street, this city,
as soon as other suitable quarters
could be found and also as soon as
lt was legally consistent to do so.
Complaints had been made previously by the association at the
establishment of a fruit stand on the
same premises ai the telegraph
office. This. It was explained, was
not the fault of. the company, but in
dlrectlv that of the lessor of the

Councillor McGregor entered on the
scene and was invited to the platform.
This was the first occasion during
the campaign that the two aspirants
for the chief magistrate's chair had
appeared on the Bame platform. Mr.
McGregor, who only spoke for a few
minutes, dealt with the wage problem,
the Kingsway paving contract, the
water system and also the proposed
municipal hospital. The latter question apparently appealed to those
present, many of whom were of the
working class and members of thc
Municipal Employees' Association.

commerce saw this weakness and
went further thou Mr. Borden. He
said that the proposals were based
upon confidential Information which

Leonard Darwin, Son of Great Natur-
allst, 63 Years Old Today.
That sons of great men Beldom
achieve greatness Is a statement that
has been disproved in thousands of
Instances, but never more thoroughly
than by the sons of Charles Darwin,
the distinguished naturalist and father
of evolution. One of the foremost
men of science ln England is MaJ.
Leonard Darwin, fourth son of the
celebrated Charles, who will celebrate
today his sixty-third birthday. Sir
George Howard Darwin, who died last
month, was famed as nn astronomer,
while Sir Francis Darwin, third son
of the author of "The Origin of Species," was knighted by King George
this month for his attainments in
various sciences.
MaJ. Leonard Darwin was born at
Down, In Kent, Jan. 15, 1850. He was
educated at the Koyal Military Acad-
emv at Woolwich, and, after a brilliant military career, retired in 1SR0
with the rank of Major, to devote the
remainder of his life to science. He
has served on a number of scientific
expeditions, and has written books
dealing with astronomy, finance and
What his father did for evolution,
Maj. Leonard Darwin promises to accomplish In the domain of the new
science of eugenics, or race improvement. In a recent paper he explained
the object and methods of the eugenic
movement, in which hn Is a leader.
He wrote, In part, as follows:
"The main object cf the eugenist is
to insure Ihe interest of the unborn
of the future always being held in
view in connection with al! our social
customs and all our legislation. For
the sake of our fellow creatures of
today and tomorrow every effort
should without doubt be made to Im-
The time between nominations and elections may be
shorter than is desirable, but now that the mayor and
council of 1912 have given a lucid account of their doings,
the voters of New Westminster are doubtless appreciative
of the tremendous amount of constructive work that has
been attempted and carried to a successful and economical
After all. the speeches at the Opera House on Monday
were but a summary, necessarily short, of the progress
made. No person in the city can look back over the past
twelve months and honestly deny that in all the customary
branches of civic endeavor a record of advancement has
been made. But more than this, great schemes have been
initiated, whose ultimate fruition and benefit to the
city, the voters have placed themselves on record as recognizing.
The truth of the old adage of "swapping horses while
crossing a stream" should be borne in mind by all at this
present juncture in the affairs of our city. Last June we
did our best to impress upon the electorate that New Westminster stood at the parting of the ways, and the mandate
conveyed by a record poll and an overwhelming majority
in favor of the bylaws then being voted upon, was a notice
to the world at large that we had set our feet upon the path
of progress.
We began well, and the present administration has
seen to it that to the best of their ability New Westminster
should continue to go forward. Not so much from their
speeches, but rather from the visible sign of deeds around
us, is this all important fact to be deduced.
We must go on doing well.  Our reputation as a citv is

English National Insurance to Become
Effective Today.
David Lloyd-George's famous reform
measure tho National Insurance Act,
is scheduled to become effective tq-
day, and it will mark another triumph
cf the sturdy little Welshman, Chancellor of the Exchequer of the British
Empire, over a powerful and united
opposition. Those who have been paying weekly Installments to the governments tor the last six months will,
commencing today, enjoy the benefits
of their thrift. The boycott of the
British Medical Association, which for
a time threatened to force the abandonment of the measure, has apparently been futile.
In London some 700 physicians offered their services, and lt Is declared
that in most of the 121 Insurance
areas Into which England has been
divided the number of doctors enrolled will be ample for the fulfillment
of the government's promises.
Like the Old Age Pensions Act,
which secures for every needy old per
son ln the three kingdoms on their
seventieth birthday a pension of $1.25
per week, the National Insurance Act
Is designed to assist the poverty-stricken masses. Unlike the Pensions
act. the Insurance bill Is on a contrl-
butary basis.' It is an attempt on the
part of the state to force employers
and workmen to co-operate with the
government Ih a scheme for the benefit of the workers.
The workman pays eight cents a
week, the working woman six cents,
the government add3 four cents, and
the employer contributes the remainder of eighteen cents a week. In return the workers who participate In
the scheme are guarahteed free medical attendance when they are 111, $2.50
a week for twenty-six weeks when
out of work owing to illness, if they
are men, and $1.37 1-2 it they are
women, and If they suffer from an
incurable malady bv which they are
permanently incapacitated from earning a living they receive $1.25 a week
until they are seventv years of age. j
when they are enrolled for an old age
pension. The scheme also provides j
a maternity benefit of $,1.60.
In connection with the working out I
of this system, the British government |
has commenced a campaign against j
tuberculosis.    A number of sanatoria j
have been established, and others will i
be opened as rapidly as possible.   An- j
other provision commits the state to
organized warfare against slums, the
breaders of consumption   and   other
diseases.    The administration of the
act is placed in the hands of an insurance committee in each district.        .,   .    .     ,    ..       ,, ,  ,

George Kennedy one of the new

nedy Bros., publishers and proprietors
of the Dally and Weekly British Columbian for 12 years '(1888-1900),
which period was one of the most

was appointed poetmaster ot the city

John Redmond Puts Famous Scotland
Yard Detective In Field to Rsprs-
Dublin, Jan. 14.���Ten years ago, or
later, the suggestion that an English
detective would be put forward by
John Redmond or any other responsible member of his party as a parliamentary candidate, would have been
received ln Ireland with violent protests and hostile demonstrations.
To day such a thing Is quite within
the regions of possibility, which Is indicative of tbe complete change that
haa come over the political views of
the people.
William Melville, the famous ex-
chief of Scotland Yard, whose name ts
familiar throughout the world aa the
terror of anarchists and other political
offenders, Is at the moment pressing
his claims as a parliamentary candidate ln his native Kerry. He has already been Introduced to a Kerry constituency by John P. Boland, another
Kerry member and one of the most active of,Redmond's lieutenants.
The most astonishing feature of the
proposal to put the ex-detective forward is that he waa the principal actor ln the police campaign that broke
up the dynamite conspiracy that culminated in the conviction of a number
of Irishmen and Irish-Americans ln
the Ws.
His canidature will no doubt raise
a storm of disapproval and Indignation among the "Sinn Fein" element,
but Kerry Is no longer the militant
territory lt waa fifteen or twenty
years ago, and the prospects are tbat i
he will have an easy passage. '

When the play opens, Romeo Is
found beneath a window In the house
of the CapuletB, the family with whom
his own people, the Montagues, have
long waged feud. Romeo and Juliet,
however, have met, and loved at first
A few fine scenes are devoted to
i their love-making, and then we find
Mullet refuslpg to become .affianced to
Tybalt, the husband of her father's
choosing. Her objections count for
little, and preparations for the marriage are pressed forward. Romeo
hears of them, and determined to prevent the union, he attends a masked
ball given by the Capulets. His attempt to speak to Juliet Is successful,
but lt causes his discovery snd he ls
forced to depart abruptly.
The Capulets are irritated by the
outrage thus offered them by one of
their hated enemies, and they boldly
provoke the Montagues. A brawl
takes place In the streets of Verona;
men fall on both sides, and the Duke
of Verona, hearing of the combat, Issues an edict that duelling and brawls
must cease, and that the lives of future offenders shall be forfeited.
Henceforth lt ls Romeo's one desire
to marry Juliet secretly, and his persuasions end ln her meeting him one
morning In Friar Lawrence's cell,
where they are united before the altar.
On the same day Romeo Is challenged
by his rival Tybalt, and Impetuously
drawing his sword, wounds bis antagonist.
He Ib held captive by the guard,
carried before the Duke and banishment Is pronounced against him. He
ls forced to take a secret leave of
Juliet and then depart, an exile. Juliet's father, Ignorant of his daughter's
secret marriage, now calls upon her to

Suffered From Scurvy.
H. F. Strong, manager of the expedition, was ill, which made progress from Clarke's Island to Moose
Factory slower than It would have
been otherwise. Mr. MacFarlane and
other members of the party suffered
touches ot the scurvy, but no serious I
cases developed. While this party
went farther north than any other on
the mainland on this part of tbe continent, they encountered a large number of prospectors who had ventured
ln that direction ln search of mineral.
No trace of gold or Biker was seen
by the party, and only a few poor
specimens of diamonds were seen.
They encountered one party, however,
who claimed to have made a find of
rubles, but no specimens were shown,
and little faith wag put In the alleged
With Mr. MacFarlane coming out
to Moose Factory was W. T. Curran,
head of the party, and H. II. Caulklna,
both from Montreal.
These men, with their guides, accompanied the first Hudson's Bay
company's mall packet This packet
left, Moose Factory two days ahead
of the regular time, there having been
i week of continuous weather when
the mercury was 80 below zero. It
was when this party was down the
Frederickhouse river that the relief

This part of the expedition left the

north to Clarke'a Island.
Rich Iron Deposits.
A thorough examination ot tbe 3,-

and samples taken and brought back
to be sent to Montreal. The Iron deposit Is very rich, running as high as
76 per cent, and lt is figured that It
will be of value upon the completion
ot the Northern Railway to Rupert
While the larger part of the expedition remained on the Island, the balance of the party went as far north

from the this trip, beyond obtaining a

A peculiar impression waa made on
the members of the party when they
were frequently asked by half-breeds
if they were "trom Canada." The natives of that section appear to believe that the country Is theirs and the
Hudson Bay company's, and that lt ti
not a part of the Dominion.
The work of the party took them far
beyond the timber line and into the
moss and scrub country, where It
waa necessary to depend on driftwood for fuel.

Back  on  Old  and  Stsrner
London, Jan. 14.���The plan of the
government to cure habitual prisoners by kindness has received a temporary set-back.
Early In the year there was established at Camp Hill, Isle of Wight,
what Is known aa a "prison hotel,"
where men sent for an Indefinite term
of detention after penal servitude
bave privileges that are not available
to the men ln the neighboring penal
aervltude prison.
There Is a canteen from which they
can obtain certain luxuries; they are
permitted to smoke and write to their
friends; and there Is a common hall |
for meals and recreation. A certain
period of good behavior, however, ts
required before the men are eligible
for these privileges. Recently some
new arrivals demanded exceptional
treatn.nt Immediately upon arrival,
and being refused lt started a mutiny.
Tbey refused to do their allotted
work, smashed the cell furnishings
and demolished the cottage windows.
Soft words.had no effect and not
until the ringleaders were transferred
to Parkhurst prison and the birch applied to them did the trouble end. For
a time the military were held in readiness io violent did the prisoners become.

Mr. Guthrie then proceeded to trace
the growth of the Nationalist movement and claimed that the Conserva

to an alliance with the Nationalists.
"The Conservative party," he said.
"I believe Is tied up to an agreement
with the Nationalists which will be
held over them all their term of

establish a permanent policy."

Mr. Guthrie claimed that at tho

he asked, had ever heard of a free and

demand from Britain as to what action the colonies would take, yet there

Labor Man Speaks.
Dr. Green did not arrive until late
and Mr. F. H. P. Mcintosh, a labor
candidate, was given an opportunity
of Btatlng his case. He first thanked
tho trustees for giving him the chance
to speak, and then stated that he had
three  good  reasons  for  running  for

To Mr. Trapp's knowledge there was
not even 5 per cent of the citizens antagonistic to the board. He eulogized
tho cffortB of Trustees Peck and
Thornber, stating that truly they were
hard workers and expressed thanks
to ��� the council for tho Interest and
support given school matters. At the

ThefpurtU contention dealt with
was that the admiralty memorandum
showed no existing emergency. Those
who took that view might be referred
to the Bpeech of the Rt. Hon. Winston
Churchill after the last Gcrmna navy
bill was made known. That, he felt,
would of Itself prove the question of
emergency and make clear the Inter-
pretattftm of the present memorandum.
"The British government knows

Middleboro. "They know what Is the

The high school course as at present constituted, said Mr. Mcintosh,
does not contain enough practical
education for a great many people,
and It would be a waste of time for
boys seeking a mechanical or business
education to go through high school
when they could take a business or
mechanical course outside. Mr. Mc-
Intoeh thought the curriculum should
contain enough studies so that It
would be unnecessary for boys or
girls to go to a private Bchool for an
education of this nature.
Asked why the business course was
not Included In the high school course,
Mr. Trapp replied that arrangements
had been made to start it but aB only
three pupils had seemed willing to
take it up, the matter was dropped.
Mrs. Gilley then jumped up and
launched Into a speech defending the
compulsory high school education plan
and the action of the board in not including the courses  referred  to.
For a time the speakers were rather heated in their arguments, but thc
matter was brought to a close when,
after Mr. Trapp had said tlie speaker
was dlscusBlng things of which he apparently knew little, Mr. Mcintosh
closed with the statement that he

years. The board, he stated, had put

year. One of these was the great in

board had always endeavored to look
ahead but not too far. As the hoard

New York, Jan. 14.���If I have dar

N'orir.andj novel, "The Arm Chair at

quaint and accomplished landlord."
One one occasion when these thinly

Things went on <n this way until

The news gatherer shipped aboard

Some Curious Regulations For Jack
Tar Afloat.
Now thnt the notorious "10a" pun-
i-ihment lias been abolished in the
navy there is a chance tbat ciiio day
Jack will be treated like a man, and
not, as at present, like a child in
danger ol being spoiled unless pulled
up smartly as often as possible. We
may expect to see some of the mart-
absurd crimes ol which he can be
guilty follow "lacing the paint."
Why should he. "when it comes to
face ornaments "grow all nr shove
allP" "All on or all ofl" is the inexorable law, and any man who attempted to cultivate a moustache only would
sacrifice a month's pay. Then is nu
such restriction in the United States
navy, and this is one of the reasons,
it is said, why so many of our bluejackets desert to it, though probably
tho higher pay is the principal inducement.
Another carious crime, is whistling
in certain circumstances. However
exubersntiy loyal Jack may be, he
may not whistle "God Save the King,"
as the National Anthem is'not allowed
to be rendered on a man-of-war except by the band. The Dead March
in "Saul"���with or without variation
���is also prohibited, and anything
even remotely suggestive of "Tlie
Wearin' of the Green" brings on the
offender swill, punishment.
In this particular, however, the sailor is under no greater dissbility than
the soldier, who also is not allowed |
to whistle certain tunes. These include���when he is stalljned in Ireland���"The Battle of the Boyne."
Jack is  at a  further  disadvantage
with the civilian   in   that  ha is  not

Commission Is faced
by Difficult Problem
(Continued from page one)
Inception was briefly dwelt on and
proved interesting in showing how the
scheme was started.
Mr. Trapp said he considered the
market today the biggest benefit "to
New Westminster of any of its Institutions. He considered the transportation problem not a very serious one,
but thought the farmers were handicapped on account of the shortage of
good labor.
Grading of oPtatoes.
Mr. Trapp referred to the present
supply of potatoes, saying that they
are a drug on the market. This ls due,
he said, to the ack of co-operation
among the farmers, as practically
everyone planted large quantities of
potatoes last spring. He urged the
organization' of exchanges where information can be had, and where the
farmers can combine to hold up the
price o( some one commmodity instead of flooding the market.. He
thought that it would be ln the interests of the farmers to grade potatoes just as apples and other fruits,
are graded ^^^^^^^^^^^
Mr. D. K. MacKenzie, wbo appeared
before'the commission on Monday, was
present and made a short criticism
of a Vancouver paper for misquoting
him. He is quoted as saying that the
farmers were rutting one another's
throats on the New Westminster market and the consumers were therefore
buying cheaper produce.
He did not say this.- neither did he
say that the biggest part of the busi-
1 neBB done on the market was by farm-
| era who came into town without their
goods, meeting the buyer here and
selling the stuff before sending lt in.
He did say there is some of this business done, but tt ls only a small percentage of the market business.
"The rest of the report was about
as accurate," added Mr. .M.acKenzte.
Will Visit Delta.
Mr.   F.   J.   MacKenzie,   M.L.A.   for
Delta, Invited the commission to visit
urged that the duty ,>e raised to equal
proportions at least.
Mr. Wade stated that three other
things required attention, ono being
land clearing, another good roads, and
the third transportation. In no place
ln the Fraser valley, he said, can land
be cleared for less than $60 per acre,
and ln most places Its cost would be
several hundred dollars.
He said that he suggested two'
years ago the purchase by the government of logging outfits to be placed
at central points throughout the province to be used by the settlers, In
clearing their land. He urged that
the government at least clear out tbe
underbrush, as this is becoming a menace' to the fruit produce In that it furnishes an excellent breeding place for
pests which prey on the crops. He
thought that land clearing would materially aid ln the settlement of the
province. Most of the farmers have
the means to carry on their work but
are unable to bear the heavy burden
of clearing the land at such a great
cost. Prison labor on this work was
also suggested for consideration by tne
Riparian Roads.
Discussing the road question, Mr.
Wade spoke of the drainage feature,
and recommended that road supervisors be appointed. He also proposed
a trunk road on each side of the Fraser
river, built at the expense of the province, with municlpally-built lateral
roads leading from them. '   -
Mr. E. C. Traves, made a s"hort
statement, which while rather startling, offered food for much thought
and would seem to Indicate that stock
raising is fast disappearing as a business in this district. He said that
when he came here four years ago,
on each market day he bought an average of 300 calves. There are not
that many calves received ln an "entire season now.
At one time there was also plenty
of beef, while he did not believe that
three beef carcasses have been received at the markt in tbe last six
months. Hogs are not now coming in
in greater numbers than 10 each week
as against from 150 to 200 a few years
Many Are Quitting.
Mr. Traves was at a Iobb to explain
these changes, except that many people are quitting the farms.   Asked If

William Mellody, better known by
the saccharine sobriquet of "Honey,"
was borr. in Charlestown, Mass., 29
years ago today, Jan. 15, 1884. Borne
years ago Billy waa claiming the welterweight championship of the world,
an honor left ownerless after the retirement of Tommy Ryan, Mysterious
Billy Smith. Matty Matthews, Rube
Ferns and Joe Walcott, the gladiators
who 10 or 15 years ago, made the
welterweights the most popular ot pugilists. Mellody never quite attained
his ambition, although he showed himself a nifty little fighter In many a
hardly contested battle. In 1906 he
was knocked out by Harry Lewis, and
the following year went over to
France. The Lewis Nemesis still pursued him, and he was knocked out in

He ts stopping at the Windsor .and

nope of a sensible solution of the existing difficulties. Every one was
most kind to us in Toronto, trom a
personal point of view, and Lol Sol-
man amongst otber thing* p-it hit
auto at our disposal."
Mr. Jones had a long Interview wltb
Mr. George Kennedy, managing director of the Irish-Canadians, last
night, and tbe two dined together.
"I told blm." said Mr. Kennedy,
"that everything waa peaceful In the
Out, and would,, no doubt, continue
to be so.
"Personally, I believe that we can
get along without worrying about
leagues at all. If we lost money last |
year, lt was the weather thu beat ua;
Why, take National for Instance, tbey
made much more money last year
than they did the previous season."'
"Will there bo my change tn the

"There may be," be ' replied.
"Whenever I go to Ottawa a syndicate of people there bother me to get
in, and I tell them 'get up an official
document showing who your people

cheque for flv* thousand dollars, sad
there mlgbt be aebance.'"
If for instance, a bluejacket spits ��n
the deck, he is made to carry about
an enormous spittoon till he detect-
somebody committing the same enormity, lt was this principle whicb
made "10a" so objectionable to lower-
deck men.
Altogether, Jack has to keep a
"bright lookout" to retain his record
of service free from "crime."
Mr. Grayson's Talk  In s Train.
Mr. Victor Grayson, nn arriving late
at a Socilaist meeting at Nelson, En-;.,
explained that he had been waiting
on a station near Manchester for an
hour and a half for a train to briiu
him there.
Thst was probably due to a mistake-
on the part of the railwsy porters,
and it reminded him of a humnnu.-
incident wlifeli happened to him on a
former railway journey. He remembered getting into a train at the same
time as another msn wbo was what
they en I led in Lancashire "purple st
the gills." After the train bad started the man commenced talkin to him
about the failings of the railway system. He (Mr. Grayson) endured it
as well as he could, and in his most
patient moment he said, "Well, If yon
want to improve them the only thing
you can do, in my opinion, is to ns.
tinnslixe them." The other man is-
plied, "It 1 had my way 1 would paralyze tbem."

now engaged ln a colonisation scheme,
whereby the government seta aside
25,000 acres In various parts of the
province, to be sold to settlers In
blocks of not more than 40 acres, one
quarter of the land to be cleared by
the company he represents.
Mr. Fraaer stated that the fires
which are necessary In clearing the
land, do more damage' to the soil than
can be replaced in many years. He
then went on to state that it had cost
him $225 per acre to clear some land
near Revelstoke, using machinery. He
thought, however, thu an* experienced
crew could have reduced this cost to
about $150 per acre. On Vancouver
Island It cost $250 an acre and this
same price Is snout right for land In
the vicinity of New Westminster.
That the government must do something to assist In this work la Mr.
Frater's contention. In view of the
fact that farmers are oftentimes eo
widely scattered and the cost of moving tbe clearing machinery. It so great
he would favor, a proposition whereby
tbe government will take * large tract
and, aftar clearing It, cut It up into
blocks of not more than 40 acrea.
160 Acre* to* Big.
He thought the present homestead*
of 160 acrea were entirely too big.
Pre-emptors and homesteaders, according to Mr. Fraaer, are even worse than
tthe speculators who buy land to hold
for profit, as they seem to place an
Imaginary vain* ����� their property thu
la not there, wall* moat speculators
are willing to aell at a reasonable
pries. He thought a reduction In the
sice of tbear clatma would put tbem In
tbe class of tb* UgiUmate settlers,
aa they would th*p not bave ao much
wasteland. ...
Asked wh�� percentage of the land
<n the proviso* ia under cultivation,
!*���>��� Fraser replied that in hla opinion
S par cent of ibe land held by pre-
emptors Is .being worked, and t per
cent of tbe homesteads. Tbe settler's
landa are about 75 per cent under cultivation. About 75 per cent of th*
settlers wbo have taken wild land have

A great many people   are   buying

according to Mr Traves. The labor
question and getting the land cleared
are the principal problems, he e*ld.
He suggested that the a-overn-nent
clear half of ten acre tracts and attract settlers In that way.
Mr. J. W. Martindale who formerly

a law enacted which will force people
to either cultivate their lands or Bell

Mr Moses B. Coatworth told of Hill
farming ventures. He bought 4*0]
acres of land three years ago, and was
told that lt would cost him $40 an acre

him about $150 an acre to clear the
property, and.he ls now unable to get
a living on lt, or to secure money from
the bank* to continue his clearing operations. .       ,t
He also thought It should be unlawful fpr one to bold land without cultivating it, and thought the government should be empowered to step

the property to legitimate settlers.

thought. A free market In every .town
was also advocated.

Bound to Wheel by Bulgarians   and
Subjected to Tortures���Refused
Food and Drink.
London, Jan. 14.���While acting as
war correspondent for the Central
News with the Turkish army, Mr.
Angus Hamilton was taken prisoner
by the Bulgarians. He has now arrived tn London, and thus describes
the disgraceful treatment he endured
at their hands:
"I had been captured between 10
and 11 In the morning, and about 2
I was led past the halting place of
the, officers of the 36th Infantry
where I was stopped and questioned.
The escort's explanation that I was
being taken to the quartler-general
by General Popoffs orders was not
sufficient for the colonel commanding, who ordered me to dismount.
"Before I could comply I was seized
by a number of people, and dragged
from my horse, a revolver was held
to my face,, a sword to my throat
and my arms were twisted behind
my back. I was searched, and asked
for my revolver and papers. Everything I possessed was taken from me,
the colonel himself going through
my pockets with a delicacy which
suggested that I might have been a
thief caught red-handed in the act of
committing some crime.
"The conversation was pointed and
nersonal, and was conducted in
French, German and English. I was
called upon to explain what my papers meant, what various pencil-
marks on the map which I carried
Indicated, and why I was wearing a
Turkish uniform. I explained that 1
was not wearing Turkish uniform but
the ordinary shooting kit of an Eng
lishman, but this protest elicited
nothing more. satisfactory than a
tightening of the ropes on my armB.
"When this little Bcene had continued for some little time, I was
warned that I was in peril of my life,
and that tf I attempted to get away
I should be shot. Then I was ordered to mount my horse, my knees
were strapped to the saddle, and
my escort was Increased to six, one
of whom, an officer, rode behind me
with a loaded revolver pointed at
my back."
Threatened With  Death.
The party failed to find the quartler-general, and at nightfall Mr. Ham
ilton was taken to the bivouac of
the officers of the 36th Infantry. He
"I was at once told to dismount
and sit upon the ground, where my
knees and ankles were bound with
ropes, and the whole wearisome
business of ascertaining my identity
repeated. 1 was examined, cross examined, repeatedly told that 1 was
a liar, threatened with death and re
galed with stories of Turkish Inefficiency, cowardice, and demoralization,

Death Reveals Story of How Famous
Singer Tried to Win Bavaria's
Munich, Jan. 14���The death here of
Frauleln Josephine Schefsky, once a
great singer, has revealed the secret
of ber downfall. For 40 years this
tragic little story of a woman's ruse
that failed haa never even been whispered. Now that she Is dead It has
some to light. If it had not been so
aad in Ita results, lt would have been
ludicrous ln Its conception.
In 1879, Frauleln Schefsky was the
principal star singer at the Munich
opera bouse, then the centre of musical Europe. King Louis IL, of Bavaria, the great patron of great artistes,
showered presents upon her and all
the world came to hear her sing. She
construed the king's attentions as being tantamount to a declaration of
love, and she came to the conclusion
that the only thing needed was a suitable opportunity at which to secure an
open avowal of the royal passion.
She cast her mind about and decided that nothing would appeal to the
romantic nature of King Louis as a
dramatic rescue from drowning. The
king was at noted swimmer���It was
on one of his morning swims In the
Starnberger sea that he eventually
met bis death, either by accident or Intention has never been made clear.
Frauleln Schefsky, therefore, arranged that one morning when the
king was taking his walk by the Palace lake she should throw herself ln
and shout for help. An attendant was
to be sufficiently near ln case anything went wrong, but lt seemed almost certain that the king would
plunge In to thc rescue of the beautiful singer.
Frauleln Schefsky carried out her
program to the letter. Half submerged
she shrieked for help. King Louis
saw there was no danger of her drowning and observed the attendant, whose
curiosity had overcome his discretion.
Turning to his secretary, the king
"What a pity such an artist cannot
put a play on better than that!"
He ordered the professional "rescuer" to do thc work he was paid for.
Then he sent his equerry to tell the
diva that never again should she sing
at the Munich opera bouse.
SI"- went to Nuhembcrg, Karlsruhe
and Berlin, but her career was ruined.
Her sudden departure from Munich,
after eight triumphant years, gave rise
to rumors that effectually drove her
from the opera. She returned to Munich where she lived in retirement and
poor circumstances during declining
years of her life. And now, only with
her death, has the vain yet pathetic
little ruse which brought about her
I disgrace been told to the world.

Two     Members    of    8outh    African
Cabinet Irreconcialable on Navy
Isondon, Jan. It.���General Botha's
resignation und the news that. Lord
Ciladelone hus commissioned him to
re-form his cabinet are the climax of
u long series of Incidents which have
passed unnoticed during the past few
months, when other more pressing
mutters have been filling our newspaper columns.
The Immediate cause of the Prime
Minister's resignation appear*- to have
been a split between Colonel Leu-
-chars, of Natal, and General Hertzog,
of tlio Free State���both members of
the Cabinet.
Colonel Leuchars, C.M.G., represents Umvotl ln Natal, and was one
of tho body of Natal Independents
who refused to associate themselves
with the Opposition. He accepted office under General Botha on the
strength of oft-repeated assurances
that the government would hold the
balance evenly between the English
and Dutch elements. The division of
Umvotl Is a large farming district,
where English and Dutch farmers live
togther on most amicable terms.
Many of tho Dutch settlers trace the
titles of their farms back to the times
of I'ieter Marltz, and Greytown, in
this division, is the old home of the
Bothtui, and the General's birthplace.
At a meeting of Col. Leuchars' constituents held recently the strongest
exception was taken to some speeches
by General Hertzog, who went so far
Ha to describe Sir Thomas Smartt, the
Opposition leader, and Col. Byron, one
of the Union Senators, as "foreign ad-
yenturers." The ground of this complaint against them seems to have
been that they were not born in South
Africa, but in Ireland, and Col. Leuchars' constituents very naturally felt
that this discrimination was incompatible with the assurances on which
their member had accepted office.
Col. Leuchars' position, therefore,
became impossible so long as General
Hertzog stuck to his guns, and this
probably explains the resignation of
Col. Lcuchurs along with General

Five   or   Six    Huge    Battleships

ill   Us
Oil   Fuel.
Isondon, Jan. 14.���According to the
Dally Mall the work of framing the
British navy estimates for the coming year is nearly completed. The
one point remaining for decision,
namely, whether five or six battleships shall be laid down depends upon the Austrian naval program.
If the Admiralty decides to wait before taking action till the Austrian
ships are laid down, it may be ex-
pected to begin with five battleships
this year.
The naval program will then, according to present Information. Involve an expenditure of $240,000,000
and will Include five battleships, six
light armored cruisers, twenty destroyers, a number of submarines,
snd an addition to the personnel nf
r.ono men, making a total of 142,000
offlr-ers and men.
The battleships will be of a new
type, the largest and strongest which
science can build or money stipplv.
They will displace 27.000 or 28.000
tons, burn oil fuel alone, and steam
25 knots.
Thus they will be Intermediate between the present Dreidno'icht battleship and battle cruisers. They will
be armored In all probability, with
oicht 16't-lnch guns, each firing two
���illO-nound shells, or. If the 1614-
Inch gun Is not adopted, with 15-Inch
b'ipb. flrln<- shells that weigh about

seemed. The question of European i seriously affected by tho shortage of
immigration   bad   been  discussed   be
tween the Prime Minister and (Jen.
Booth, of tbe Salvation Army, nml It
would be impossible to hope for any
substantial increase in the white population If the newcomers were not as
welcomo as they are in .Canada aud
i Australia.
For the moment this declaration of
[���Con era I Botha cleared the air. The
I-atatement   was  accepted  by  General
The increase in the cotton Industry has been such that lt is asserted
that within the next few months
there will be few towns in the county
ln which maximum production will
not be prevented from this cause.
A strong protest is being made by
trade unlr.nlsts, supported by several manufacturers, against the iifduce-
JHertzog, but unfortunately the   ques-  ments  being   offered   to   the   buxom
tion of the navy seems to Have caused
another and more serious difference.
General Hertzog took up a strong
line against the Imperialism of those
Unionists who are crying out for a
South African contribution towards
the navy on lines similar to that of
Canada. General Botha, however,
waa anxious that the question should
not be prejudged. South Africa
doubtless depends for her wealth on
the safety of her shipping, but she has
no Japan opposite her back door.
It Is hardly correct to regard Hertzog as the spokesman of the Back-
veld; that would be to undcr-estimate
his intellectual capacity. He is 45
years old, am) was educated at Victoria college, Stellenbosch, after
wards proceeding to Holland to study
law, where he became LL.D.
His family moved from Cape Co),
ony to the Orange Free State ln 1872,
and ln 1895 he became a judge. He
commanded the southwestern division of thc Boer forcrs during the
war, and was one of the signatories of
the Peace at Vereenlglp**.
An Unprepared Opposition.
When, owing to ill-health, ex-Preel-
dent Steyn found himself unable to
aet as leader of the Free Staters, he
indicated General Hertzog as his successor, and owing to his personal popularity and charm of manner his election to the leadership appears to have
been, unanimous.
It Is, therefore, possible that some
of the Free Staters In the Union Parliament may follow Hertzog Into opposition.
Unfortunatelv, however, for Sir
Thomas Smartt and the party he leads
the crisis finds him very weak and unprepared. At the recent Unionist Cpn-
-greBB a split was with difficulty avert-
I'd. Tbe disappearance of Sir George
Farrar from politics, caused by the
revelations of mismanagement on tbe
East Rand Mine, the death of Sir Julius Wernher and Mr. Belt, the defection ot Sir Oeorge Albu. tbe neutrality
���of Sir Abe Bailey and tbe steady
growth of tbe Labor party���all these
facts render the position of the Opposition leader almost Impossible.
Sir Thomas Smartt's personal interests are with agriculture, and lt may
very welt be tbat he will prefer to
��arry the rump of his party over to the
government rather than linger longer
In the shades of fnltlle opposition.

Centres at Blackburn.
For the moment the storm centre
is Blackburn. At a meeting of the
board of guradlans, a Clergyman
moved a resolution that the board
should approve of the emigration of
a number of suitable girls to Canada. Kngl' "-men in the Dominion,
be said, wain 1 English wives, but
owing to their .hsence, they were
marrying Poles and Russians.
Mothers of these nationalities would
not bring up- their children In the
same patriotic spirit as English mothers; hence from a patriotic standpoint tbe emigration of English girls
should be encouraged. Immediately
there were heated protests from all
sides. Fifteen hundred girls, said
f-ne objector, would be required shortly, and the pressing problem of the
future would not be to dispose of
their girls but rather what to do to
secure sufficient work-people to run
the machinery tbey already had. A
resolution was. then nut to send representatives to Canada and othet
dominions to persuade old factory
hands to return to tbelr former home
and   employment
Coming Problem.
An ocurrence of thle nature irre-
slstably directs attention to the question of emigration. With tne �������������
tlnual drain Great Britain may ln tbe
near future easily have a labor problem In some degree at least approaching that ot Canada, embracing
not only Its agricultural population
but Its Industrial wort-era.
It has previously been noted tn
*hese columns tbat ln Ireland, Scotland and parte of England tbe question of obtaining a sufficiency of agricultural workers haa been felt ao
seriously that employers have organ*
zed to discourage emigration. Quite
freotientlv evidence comes to band
of employers refusing to furnish the
papers necessary when prospective
settlers are seeking financial assistance.
Terms like "anrplna population"
ahd "overcrowded millions" are out
of date, at least ao far aa farm-workers and artisans are concerned. Canada does not take very kindly to the
townsman, but It Is becoming Increasingly evident that from tbls class
she must draw her emigrants, tf she
Is to continue to make such heavy
drafts on tbe old country.
The Town Boy.
A correspondent on this subject
placea tbe matter In rather an unusual way. Pointing out the shortage In the rural population, and alluding to the objection to the town
boy, he mentions that an examination

case, the wagon not having been repainted since being purchased from
