���Point of Order Raised.
Ottawa, March 6.���The naval debate continues in tho bouse, and by
12 o'clock on Saturday night a continuous BSsAon of 129 hours will come
to a close.
From 1 o'clock until after 3 the
debate waa continued hy 10. M, Mac

took the floor. Mr. Knowles Bald thut
the silence of Hon. Robert Rogers,
the chief ministerial representative
in the cabinet, had been remarkable.
Up to the present time the minister
of public works had nol uttered a
single word in the house in regard to
the naval question. The mimstei
had spoken glibly enough ou many
���subjects when he was banquetted ai
Keginu Jusl before the Saskatchewan
���election, bu. now remains silent.
To genii ihe proposed $36,000,000 to
I'.uglaud. Mr. Knowles said, is both
unnecessary nnd unwise. Personally
lie. was not enthusiastic in regard to
the naval expenditures, but since
aome outlay had to be made it should
be made aa a dominion with the con-1
sequent Industrial BtimulUB for the
country. Mr. Knowles then criticized !
what he characterized as the unwill '
Lngneas ot lhe government to give in |
format ion.
A Point of Order.
In the course of his remarks Mr.
Knowles read various extracts with
the result thai trouble blew up which |
culmlnlatad iu an appeal from the

North    Burnaby  Ratepayers' Association  Pass Resolution  Asking
Council  to  Act.
Edmonds, March 6.���Though sentiment In general throughout the municipality, but particularly In North
llurnaby, appears to be in favor ol
bavlng the li. C. B. 11. franchise question settled without further litigation,
there aro still a large number of people who are convinced that the liur-
nahy council should appeal thc decision recently handed duwn by Mr.
justice Murphy on the matter to the
privy council.
This latter is Instanced by thc following resolution received yesterday
at the municipal hall and by Councilor  Stride.
ltesolved that the council be Instructed to appeal the B. C. E. R.
franchise to the privy council ln accordance with tbe recent plebiscite
taken on that question. The resolution waa forwarded by the ward one
ratepayers' association.
ll is only natural that North Burnaby should wish for an early settlement of tbe franchise question. If
litre is any district that sufferB from
the lack of proper transportation at
Ihe preaent time it is tlie north and
the residents there are convinced
that as soon as t the question la
settled their cbances for better railroad facilities will be increased ty.o

the many BtringB that are steadily
drawing the city abreast in the race
of development. Mayor Cray foreshadowed the bylaws, to he placed before the electorate, announced tbe Increase of assessment, and the Immediate beginning of city work; Alderman
White gave an outline of the very im-

beside the question.
"Well. I will read Winston

Mr. Knowles.
Mr. Hoyce again rose, to a point of

in the chair, vainly endeavored to get
an answer to a ruling, finally he

Mr. Knowles then proceeded with
the reading of Mr. Churchill's speech
A Utile later on when Major Currie

chair, Mr. Hoyce ngaln recommended

remarks were lnelevaut.
"In what respect ?" queried A. K
McLean,  for Halifax.
Major Currie told Mr. Knowles that
lie must not wander too far from the

Mr.  McLean    contended    that    Mr.

out  to  the  Biibject  under discussion. .

At the evening sitting of the Iloyal
Commission on I-abor, which was in
session in New Westminster yesterday, several witnesses, Including
Mayor Gray, took the stand with regard to industrial conditions and proposed   remedies.
Mayor Gray waa the flret witness,

his audience with him in an eloquent
appeal for "thinking greatly," driving
home with emphasis the Importance of

Mr. Kerr Presided.
Mr- W. J. Kerr presided in the ���n.b-
sence of the president, T)r. F. P. Smith
and welcomed the guests, lt was the
enthusiastic, strong spirit of progress
that existed among mayor, aldermen
and citizens that would make New
Westminster grow to be a great and
good city, stated Mr. Kerr.
lie asked Hev. Mr. Henderson to
say  a few   words.
Rev. J. S. Henderson.
Itev. J. S. Henderson said he came
there simply as one of the executive
to hear the program of th�� new council, and the head of the board of trade
and to take note of what wae outlined
for the year.
Whatever a progressive mayor and
council might attempt to do they
were handicapped unless they had behind them a body of Intelligent citizens prepared to follow, intelligently,
their lead and lend their help.
He believed ill this city that there ,
was such n body and that in any sane,
forward movement the bulk of the citizens would hack them up and give
them their hearty and sympathetic
support They had those who "knocked" and of course a few knockers in
nny city were good If they "knocked"
Intelligently.
Year of  Progress.
They had last year and still had a
progressive mayor and a progressive ,
couneil   and   he  saw   no  reason   why
1913  should  not   he  one  of  the  best
years in New Weatmlnster,
The council had their hands full In
Ihe program marked out and they
needed the hearty co-oeration of every
citizen. |t largely depended upon how
ihey supported these measures what
their city was going to be.
Cray   Heartily   Greeted.
Mayor Cray was the next speaker
and on rising was greeted with np-,
plause and the singing of "He's a Jolly,
Good Fellow."
He opened his speech by comment- j

FRIDAY MORNING, MARCH 7. 1913.
CO-OPERATION! CO-OPERATION! CO-OPERATION!
There are some thrones upon which the white light
may beat but fail to extract a single indication as to the
policy the occupants of those regal chairs intend to pursue, 'if the Progressive association had nothing further to
its credit at least there may be set down to it that its:
midday banquets are productive of much information be-
ing elicited both from visitors and from our own fellow
citizens upon matters of vital interest to everyone in the |
city.
Therefore we would commend our readers to peruse i
with care the speeches made yesterday by Mayor Gray
and his confreres, for therefrom it may he gathered that |
Westminster has girded her loins for another eventful
year; that her plans have been well laid by men who recognize that the present is a time to go cautiously but still,
ever forward; that we are now at last over the long winter of seeming inaction, and that soon the plans which
have been steadily maturing will be evidenced in outward
and visible signs of steel and pavements.
It is welcome news to hear that both the C. N. R. and
tlie B. C. E. R. intend shortly to spend large sums of money
in Westminster, and it is especially good news to learn that
.'rrangements have been made for the immediate start of h"
work upon city streets, thereby providing many men now
out ol employment with a means of subsistence and a scope
for endeavor. The trumpet call of the president of the
board of trade will, we trust, not fall on deaf ears. We
need to begin co-operation right here in Westminster, and I ^j^
to ensure success in any of the branches of our endeavors, I Th" discoveries already made i>*

here, we need efficient and trustworthy publicity.
This publicity is not confined to the press as a medium
of acquainting people here or outside the city of what
is going on, but, up to the present time, as Mr. John A. Lee
pointed out, there has been a lack of spontaneity in certain quarters in our own city in supplying that information which will enable trustworthy bodies to attract to
the city those interests that will materially add to our development and to the personal benefit of each of us.
Alderman White's monition to public bodies that they
���should be careful to secure authentic information upon a;
given matter before going on record with resolutions regarding it, is to be welcomed.   But, what we have already
outlined, should be taken into consideration therewith.
Newspapers, publicity bodies, boards of trade, executives
or what not, if they are worthy of their name, will take1
every step in their power to secure reliable information'
before committing themselves, but, if the sources of that
authentic information are silent, they must do the best
can with the available material.
Amid a record of so much progress, we are glad to
note that Alderman White seized this opportunity to give
the public some enlightenment upon the excellent work
that has been accomplished at the Carnegie library since
the advent of the new librarian.  That an assistant is now
required is in itself evidence of the growth of interest
taken in this institution and in the literary fare it has to
offer.  This again is a sign which to many minds will count
ior more than many advances in realty values.

The Canadian party, on the other
hand, recognizing that the conquest
of the lofty peak Is only an Incidental
in the work, has not been furnished
with any extra equipment. It Is not
doubted for a moment, however, that
wben the qui stion of rivalry arises lhe
Canadians will put forward every ef-
fort to, reach  the summit first.
Only once has the mountain been
scaled to Its summit, and that was
about five years ago, when the Duke
of Abruzzi, starting en the south side,
succeeded after terrible hardship in
making the ascent. His chief trouble,
however, waa in getting in to the
base.

the biologist the ultimate organic cell

Sir Joseph Thomson bad also said
that an atom was a particle nf an element having a certain unchangeable
individuality of its own, but subject
lo modification by the habits acquired
by association with other atoms
Surely that must recall In the biologist tii" living being with iis unchangeable heredity subject to modification by association with other living beings.

Today Thc News celebrates its birthday, ami looks
back over seven years of a somewhat chequered and, we
trust, useful existence. Seven years may or may nm lie a
Innjr period, but we venture lo state tlmt the past seven
years in Westminster have been seven uf tlie most eventful in her history.
Seven is a good number, if we are to take the highest
authority extant, and in it we see a happy augury for those
year.-, which stretch ahead.
In common with the city The News Stands ready to
face whatever the future may have in store, and through
storm or sunshine, it will in no way depart from its expressed intention of working to fm ward the interests of
New Westminster along the lines of solid and sane dvelop-
nient.

With Great  Risk���Kaiser Shocked
���Fleets   Mourn.
Berlin, March 6,   The  number  of
Officers nnd men of the (ieniian lor
pedo boat destroyer S-17K who lost
their llveB In h collision With lhe armored cruiser Vorck five miles northeast oi Heligoland at midnight Tuesday night, Ib now placed definitely al
71. This Includes two offioers and tin
men. Tho admiralty reports that
most ol' the men were frozen tu death
while clinging to ropes and spars.
The accident, the worst of many
which has overtaken the German torpedo service, occurred only a few
hours after the departure of the Kaiser
who had been following the manoeuvres In a hultlcshlp.
The destroyer was rammed amidships by the cruiser and sank Instantly, being almost completely cut
In two. The high seas, stormy southwest winds and the Inky darkness in-
terferred with rescue operations, and
the Yorek, aided by another deBtroyer
was aide to rescue only fourteen of
the crew of the S-17S.
Accounts differ regarding tlie eir-
oumstanci a of the disaster lu the
Reichstag yesterday afternoon, Admiral von TlrjfftS, the secretary of the
navy, slated that he was unable to say
whether the collision occurred during
or after manoeuvres , or whether or
not the cruiser und the destroyer had
their lights covered.
Several reports assert that the S-17X
was rammed in tlie course of one of
the daring night manoeuvres of which
the German fleet makeB a specialty,
namely, In an attempt on the part of
torpedo boats and destroyers, to break
through the line of battleships   and
cruisers.
Several German destroyers had been
lost In former years with a score or
more of their crews, in efforts to
bring this new phase of offensive warfare to Ihe highest Btate of perfection.
The kaiser heard of lhe disaster on
the eve of his departure from Wll-
helinshaveii for Bremen, lie was
deeply shocked and ordered that all
German warships in home waters fly
flags at half-mast.

Interest of revolver practice.
The Indians are inordinately fond
of alligator Steak, a treat, however,
which ihey do not often enjoy owing
to the fewness a>id the poor quality
of Ihelr firearms. The Passes, who
live about the mouth of the Itio Negro, have taken less to the use ot
firearms than any other Bavage people that have come into such contact
with the whites.
Since they are unable to secure alligators hy shooting, Ihey have evolv-
���d several other Ingenious plans for
taking them captive. One of these,
when successfully carried out, furnishes a performance ihat is worth
a journey from New York to London
to witness.
Worse  Than   Skunk.
Found quite generally through a
large pari of lhe Amazon jungle is a
little animal called locally the "yac-
ca." It is not unlike a large guinea
pig In size and appearance, and protects Itself, after the manner of lhe
North American pole cat, by emitting
a most pugent and disagreeable odor.
The yacca is much belter armed
in th's respect than tha pole ca*, and
the presence of a disturbed member
or the species may be detected a mile
or more to leeward. The liquid that
it secretes for this purpose is of th?
most remarkably volatile nature, a
I single drop or it evaporating in a
1 rew seconds to a pugent gas or considerable  volume.

More Schoolboy "Howlers."
Speaking nt a meeting recently. Dr.
T. J. Macnamara, iw..'., told some
amusing stories ol quaint sayings attributed to children, which lie bad
collected from school teachers in various parts of the country. Here is a
selection:���
Teacher:  "What  is  a  m-dintor?"
Pupil: "Please, sir, a mediator ia
a chap wbo says, 'Hit me instead.' "
Teacher (to a London class): "What
is grass?"
Hoy: "Grass is what you have to
keep off."

Because he could walk outside
while the sermon was being preached."
"How do yo know the earth is
round?"
"Because it says in the Bible,
'World without end.' "
When he one asked a London class
of girls, added Dr. Macnamara, what
they would suy if lie told them he saw
the sun rise in the west, he got the
reply  that it  was impossible.
"But," he persevered, "supposing I

The National Reserve in the British  able to apeak to each one of them In
Isles has long been an accomplished
fact, and In common with Ita first overseas branch iu New Westminster, It
simply r.eiais that a roll of name and
addraSBBS of ail men who have com-
pleteSSclr lull -service in any branch
of the naval, military or auxiliary
(qroeS in any part of the liritish Empire nr,' kept in a register in some
public: place Here the roll is in charge
of tiv: mayor,
The act of registration entails no
obligation upon the men, but it keeps
on record the past services of those
wbo otherwise would be lost night ot
in civilian life. Moreover, in time of
national peril or in time or nutionui rejoicing, the members of the reserve
may thus be easily notified of either,
and invitri! to lend their aid or their .
presence at one or the other.
The subjoined letter appears in the
issue of the London Spectator of Keb.
8 anil was supplied to Ihe editor of
that most influential journal in compliance with his request. Thut very
Brent interest is taken in Great. Britain both in New Westminster and in
the National Reserve here, originated
is therefore self-evident. The editor
of the Spectator, Mr. J. St. l>oe Stra-
Chey, is the founder of the movement
in the British Isles.
II may be here stated that any eld
members of the services may give in
their names to Mr. W. A. Duncan, city
clerk, at the city hall and thereby help
to forward the movement which, sini-
pliciiv Itself, is at the same time de-
Bervinjj of their attention both from
national and other standpoints.
The letter, headed, "A National Reserve for Canada" is as  follows:
Sir.���It. has been told in a previous
letier bow the first oversea branch of
the National Reserve was organized
in New Westminster, British Columbia, by tv. only odd members of his
���majesty's land and sea forces on
Way "ill last, how the mayor of the
city look charge of the roll book, and
how at the .ame time a United Service club was brought into being. Before outlining our progress since ihat
date 1 would like to state that it was
from the reading of an odd clipping
containing an account of a lecture by
Lieut-Col. G. I.e M. Gretton, and more
particularly from the perusal of thc
Spectator week by week, that the ori-
ginatoa here garnered and trans
planli d  the seed.
On August 6th Colonel and Hon.
Sam Hughes, Minister of
������spent a few hours here and. on being informed of the defence movement inaugurated in New Westminster, i romised to give his Immediate
atteulion to the Biibject. The number of lhe Reserve had then grown
to ninety; the hundred mark was
passed when, on September 21 st, the
first parade was held before H. R. 11.,
the governor general; and today lis
strength stapds at a hundred and
thirty-one.
Here are a few facts concerning
tho first hundred oversea National

make Jim tlie favorite. Charley Mitchell the great Hngiish heavyweight,
and Jack McAuliffe were great admirers fo Hall and helped him in his

ringside.
The New Orleans promoters offered
(40000 for lhe fight which established

A GREAT CATALOGUE.
British   Museum's   List   Is  The   Biggest In the World.
'   The Into Dr. O. K. Fortescue who
died recently after his retirement iroin
42 years' service as keeper of Printed
l!o.,ks in the liritish Miiseiim, spent
most of that time in compiling the
great catalogue ol the library, the
must wonderful book in the w^irld.
"It contains about four million en-
trie., and grows at the rab' of 30,000
additional entries each year, said Dr.
Fiirteseii" just before his death. At
present the interleaved copies consist
of OHO volumes, and from lifteen to
twenty volumes ar" added every year,
so we shall soon pnss the limit of 1,-
000 volumes. In I860 we began to
print t.lie great ootalogUS, and by 1004
ih" work, Inoludlng a supplement ol
recently acquired book*-, was oociplat.
ed to the end of tha year ITO. It was
issued from time to time In 4'JO parts.
A   majority  of  Hie    oatalogUSS    were
given to libraries nnd Institutions, ami
the remainder we sold, Ihs price of the
whole   being   $470,  spread  over  miiiic
twenty years,
"As ths great catalogue is only an
Index to authors, it has been my en-
doavor to start u modest Subject In
ilex, which now consists ol five volumes, and cintaiiis the subjects of
all books printed between 1HH0 and
the preaent time. 1 took the ������foork In
hand Immediately after my appointment as Superintendent of the Read-
ine [loom In succeaslon t-o my old tnd
revpn^iil friend, Dr. Richard Qarnett,
1 was asked one day 'What is tha
best guide to the Canary Islands?'
'Brown's,' I replied, 'Thanks/ rs-
torted my Interlocutor���who must
have been an American, I fancy���'but
which of them? There arc thr""
whole volumes of Brown's here!' This
struck me ns so absurd that I immediately start"'! tn eomnil' my Subject Index, and I can only ivme that
it has nroved as useful Ui others as
it has lo myself.
"Another catalogue I undertook was
tlint of what is known ns the Thomas' :i   Tracts,   comprising  over   20,uoo
books,   pamphlets,   and   newspapers
published  during  the Civil  War and
tin- Commonwealth <>f which Carlyl

Sir John Simon, the youthful liritish
I Solicitor-General, is blessed with tlio
gift of the gab in an especial degree.
, He   has   established   something   of   a
r.ei.rd  by   speaking   fnr   nine   nnd   a
j half days on the telephone question.
Aocording t" a shorthand writer's com-
potation the speech contained 410,000

When speaking at a political meeting recently held at Manchester Sir

incident of his youthful days. "My
first political recollection is of something that occurred, I think it was in
1878, whin I urns a very small boy,
going tn a dame's school in Moss Side.
I remember well going out oi the gate
of tlie little house where my father
lived then, and as I went out carrying my Milele*: f. sohool, one of his

waving a newspaper ami shouting
something t., my father. 1 Hunk it

London has undertaken to char lhe

unemployed men and beggars who
have mad" some of the streets pictures ol destitution nt night. The embankment is th" first section to be
cleaned up. There is tn be no more

a Constable finds a trai-.p or honvless
man, the man will 1, i shunted into

given a ticket tn a lodging house or

day "m -une lu-nlthy occupation to

Gradually the scope of the ordT
will be widened until aJ'. the metropolitan district is inc'uil'd. What London is nlmut to undertake, it seems, is

"A   NIGHT   OUT."
May   Hobson   will  appear  thiB eve-
nin-s at the Opera House in "A Night I
Out,"  a  comedy  that   fairly   bubbles!
wllh the joy of youth,   that   radiates
happiness  and   conies  over the   foot-
lislils with  a  message of good  cheer
and hearty laughter.
As Qranmum, May Robson is delightfully comical, furnishing the audience wltb laugh after laugh, all of
tbem spontaneous, all of them wholesome. Qranmum, who goes out with
her grandsons seeking adventure, is
ni a raid on a giddy restaurant and
l.er efforts to cover it up furnish Miss
Hobson with plenty of opportunity for
the exercise of the funny facial con-
tori ions and the hundred and more
subtle comedy touches in which she
:s so expert.

The deceased wns born in Toronto \

"It Is a fallacy to suppose that th!

"Science must banish the old hedger-

Although,   according   tn  most  tele-
praphists, n tel graphist's life is not a
i happy one, there are certainly  time.
i when tlie saving grace of humor ban-
j ishes  ior a  few   moments the  dreary
j monotony   of  "kev-| u.-hii)*,'."
These   lille   humorous    interludes
, generally   arise   from  errors  in  tele-
! grams; for, although the liritish tele-
j graph service is the best and most ae-
I curate   in   the   frorld,   even   British
| telegraphists are but human,   lt must
I be  understood, of course,  that ninny
of these errors are detected in trans.
mission, and rectified belore tlio message  is  delivered.
For instance, a person receiving a
; wire. "Lizzie got a lire box. Come at
I once." would no doubt be very mystifying. Fortunately the message wa.
queried in transmission, ami the resultant "Lizzie got a flue boy. (
at one*." proved to be quite satisfactory to the recipient. Similarly,
"cockle and cater works" is a very
different message to "cycle and in ���
tor works," nr I slso "Semi trouser.
lime seated" a very unsatisfactory
substitute for "Send troupers time
stated."
Most of these errors are can-",I
through bad spacing of the Mors,, dot.'
and dashes, and also faulty wires are
very conducive to mistakes. The foil
lowing is a good example of faulty
-pan:,:.' Just about the time Mr lii.'-
tour retired from tli" leadership nf
the Conservative party a telegraphist
was receiving some press work, in
which occurred tl e phrase "(Mr. Balfour)." Now. brackets are signalled
"kk" before and utter the word contained in them. Through bad -; Being, however, the wi rds wer" received, "Ta-ta, Mr. Balfour, Ta-ta." n re-
suit obtaine I by splittimi up tin "kk"
badly,   ll was a lilting joke.
Aie ther funny mistake was that dI a
telegraphist who got "bowling paralysis," for "bowling analysis" in a
message. Also the error "a
godl ss came resulted," instead of a
"goalless game resulted," is somewhat
remarkable.
When Florence Nightingale wa- bur.
led one of the hymns sun:r wus "(Inward, Christian Soldier-, ' but unfor.

transmission of a certain message,

yet the former was received for the
latter. But nearly all these pale before the following. A message n-
received, "Come at once il you wisn
lo s e baby arriv." It should have
been. "Come at mice if you wish to
se"   baby   alive."
Again, a man who wired to his (ish-
monger, "Send one cut ealmon,"
would not expect to I'm,! that the message had r,','ieiii"l its de-ttlunlioii,

for some time in Louisburir. On mitring the Cape Breton coast a tierce
storm arose ami drove the little ship
off her course towards Point Micheau,
(which name is a corruption ol Point
Michael, after this ship, which was
named,  "St.  Michael.")    The    ship
Stranded on a reel at Point Micheau
known as "(jrus llos" (big rock). Ali
tlio crew were lost. The gold waa in
oak kegs bound with copper or brass

That the story of the loss of this
treasure ship was true was shown in
the year 1900, when a big storm swept
over this nliore and a piece of "ak
keel 40 feet long, with copper bolts,
came ashore. Further prooi was given
by the finding of many gold coins ou
tho western beach, one man finding
six coins. Tins created much Interest
in tlie Point Micheau gold, so that
hundreds went there. The beach was
plowed ami dragged, but no more
gold was got at the time.

About Trustees
"To appoint any private person a sole trustee is always regarded
as an extremely dangerous thing���for the trust
estate. The court itself
acts on this rule inflexibly."
"The position of a
trustee is one neither of
honor nor of profit. It
involves the responsibilities of wealth without the enjoyment of it.
It drags you into other
people's affairs. It
endangers the provisions you hope to make
for your own family. It
may outlast your health,
strength and ability to
cope with it and it may
mean financial disaster
for your own estate
after you are in your
grave."
These are extracts
from the Canadian Law
Times for October, 1911.
They state clearly the
opinions of legal experts as to the unwisdom of entrusting your
estate after death to a
private trustee.
The Dominion Trust
Company, Limited, with
assets o'f $4,090,946, is
authorized by law to act
as executor and trustee.
Its faithful performance of a trust is guaranteed by the total assets of the Company,

W. Mackie, unattached to any
union organization, who stated he was
a laborer and an ex-corn missioned officer in the Scots Guards, created a
little flurry by protesting against the
political patronage system which he
alleged was in operation in the local
postofflce. Witness wis taken to task
by Commissioner McKelvie when he-
suggested the system was corrupt and
withdrew   bis   charges.
Mr. A. Banner, recently of Hanley,
Staffordshire, In the heart of the
English potteries district, took the
stand and gave his views on the pres
ent land situation, stating that at tlie*
present time the working man out in
British Columbia was unable to purchase a home owing to the exorbitant
prices asked. He suggested that a
law be enacted after the same pattern
of the English Artizan Dwelling act,
the municipalities being forced to lay
aside sites where cheap but substantial dwellings could be erected for the
working man

a pottery business could be run on

"No."
Dangers to Linemen.
Mr. E. F. Fenton, a member of the
International Brotherhood of Electri-
Ical Workers, a lineman by trade, was
Ithe next witness, having with him a
(bundle of photographs showing the
dangers to which the linemen of this
| city are subjected during their work
on  the  pole  lines.
His chief complaint was that not
'sufficient spacing between the high
tension wires was allowed by the different power companies and also by
the city electrical department. In
some cases, he explained, the linemen
were compelled to either crawl out
on the cross arms or else through a
I space not more than 22 Inches wide,
with power wires on each side of them,
Mr. 11. W. Sherwood, another lineman, spoke along the same vein, stalling that a law similar to that in force
| In the Pacific coast states was necessary to protect the workmen. Mr.
Sherwood explained the different
points connected with tbe work of
these aerial workers. Telephone
wires, he thought should be kept in
cables and not allowed to rest on tbe
poles used for power lines.
Witinss stated that they had tried
to explain these details to Mr. Robertson, provincial inspector of elec-
. trieal energy with offices lit Vancouver, but that official had even refused to meet them.
Mr. Robertson will be brought before tin- commission when they next
sit   in   Vancouver.
