most prominently displayed is that of our own, homegrown premier, Sir Richard McBride. The premier of
British Columbia is a man who would grace the position
and it would be a feather in the cap of the province to
have it go to him. Irrespective of political leanings, this
end of the Dominion naturally would like to see Sir Richard given the chance of accepting or refusing the high
commissionership and the first support of the province
would be behind him if he desired the place and there was
a possibility of him getting it, but, supposing that the B. C.
premier preferred to stay among his own people, or that
it was not consistent with the policy of the federal government to offer him the post in London, there is another
name which has not been mentioned and which is entitled
to consideration, that of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.
The present leader of the opposition in the Dominion
house might not consider for a moment such a possibility,
but if it were thought he would look upon it with any favor
at all, it would be a graceful act on the part of Premier
Borden and his colleagues to give him the refusal of the
Canadian high commissionership. Sir Wilfrid has been
an outstanding figure in Canadian life and politics for a
number of years, he is able, a polished gentleman and,
while differing in opinion from the present administration, it is certain that were he appointed to the high commissioner's office in London he would be only a credit to
the post, to himself and to Canada. It is known that the
leader of the opposition is not in the best of health and
the strenuous life of sessions at Ottawa is bound to be a |
severe tax on his advanced years. While the Canadian
office at the hub of the empire would not present a sinecure, it would be a variation of activities that would be almost sure to agree with the temperament of the great
French Canadian premier.

Loudon, Jan. 22.���The controversy
which has arisen over the action of
the Bishop of Mombasa in celebrating
communion service in a Presbyterian
church at Kikuyu with an Anglican
form of service has created an immense sensation in church circles in
the United Kingdom, and has been
represented as an innovation which
might split the Church of Kngland Into
hopeless   factions.
The whole matter has now been
referred to the Archbishop of Canterbury, who is the most diplomatic and
cautious prelate, who has sat for
many years in St. Augustine's chair.
Dr. Davidson will most probably prove
equal to the occasion of maintaining
peace and as a matter of fact there is \
nothing particularly new in the occurrence.
Upwards of 40 years ago the "Glengarry scandal" as it was termed, f,lied columns of the English press without creating a rupture. On that occasion Dr. VVIlbertorce, "then Bishop
of Oxford, and Dr, Thompson. Archbishop of York, conducted a couple of
services in the parish kirk. This was
a   scandal   which   fluttered   the   dove-
> i    oforthodoxy in 1871.
Tlure was a worse scandal and one
described In much more fiery language when some years later Dean Stan-
lew welcomed non-conformist members of the commission of revision of
the Bible to joint sacrament in Westminster Abbey, The Anglican papers
made terrific statements on that occasion  but   the church survived.
Then Hgain In coronation year the
Bishop ot Hereford welcomed the nonconformists of bis diocese to communion in his cathedral to celebrate the
occasion, only to bear when convoca
tion met that his act was a cause of
grievous Bcandal and distress to large
numbers of the faithful.
Today the Bishops of Mombasa and
Uganda find themselves in the place
of Dr. WHberforce, Dr. Thomas, Dean
Stanley and Dr. Percival, whilst the
Bishop of Zanzibar, with his cry of
heresy, stands in the place of the
critics who discovered the Glengarry
scandal, the apostasy of Dean Stanley
and the impropriety of Dr. Percival.
All the leaders and scholars of the
church are at present fighting out
the question at. enormous length in
the columns of the Times und prominent among them is the Dean of Dur
ham, who once provoked the horor
of the faithful by occupying a nonconformist pulpit in the days when he
was Canon of Westminster.

be formally committed to the care of
the officials of the home by the proper court authorities.
The passage of legislation at both
capitals to be followed by orders in
council, will now give the Vancouver
Girls' home in Hastings townsite an
official standing such as is accorded
to other provincial institutions where
persons are detained -as jails, for example, to which no prisoners can he
committed until the buildings are for-
tnallj construted as jails. Action on
the part of both Ottawa and Victoria
will remove all question of jurisdiction and provide for the detention
of girls under either the provincial
or Dominion statutes.

Sonic babies nre built very small,
nnd. If well, even If below these figures, there Is no cnuse for worry. But
if a baby is about normal size and
does not come up to these figures its
diet should be carefully looked into, as
evidently it Is not being properly nourished.
Tbe growth of baby's body is very
Important. See that the teeth come In
properly and that the legs grow
straight and strong. The babies should
be carefully watched and developed
naturally.���Itural Farmer.

Greater than Panama's Bridge of Water
The Panama Canal  is the logical  outcome of the Jrend of
modern commerce-it ii monumental evidence ol tho pre.entdey need for
ahorteain* distance -for lestenintf time snd for reducing cost of dietributioa
between maker snd consumer.
In point  of   distance,  the   Panama   will  bring   the   Pacific
nearer to the Atlantic by 1,010 miles. In point of time, tbe sea voyage between
Halifax and Vancouver will be shortened by 24 days. In point of cost, the canal
will very materially lessen the expense of carrying freight between these pieces.
Hut there is a stronger factor th-.i even the Panama in shortening distances,
lessening cost and savinj time between manufacturer and user.
It is Advertising	
It  is  the  quickest ���
It is   the most   diroc t ���
And it is the cheapest ���
means of communication between the maker and user of goods.
For instance, Advertising enabled a manufacturer in Nova
Scotia to carry a demand for his product
from his factory to the Pacific Coast
��� in a few days
��� at an insignificant cost
compared with slower and more laborious selling methods.
In one week, thousands learned of his product where it would
have taken years for the news to get around without advertising.

in your letter re professional hockey
for this winter. I do not think that
your proposition is either fair or
1 had a conversation yesterday over
the 'phone with Mr. Savage and I am
following that up with a letter the
contents of which I trust your company wil! find satisfactory so that if
hockey proves to be well patronized
this season next year your company
may decide to operate a team independent to us. As a stockholder we
are anxious that the Westminster

every year otherwise our stock is

Tbe two crack teams of the lower
mainland, Port Coquitlam and the
Westminster Rovers, are due to settle
their little differences ou Saturday
afternoon, January 31, at the Port
City, in what promises to be the titbit of soccer for the season.
The game ig in connection with the
Mainland cup and while Manager
Grant would have much preferred to
have met the Ranchers in the finals,
be was found busy yesterday preparing a team which lie is confident of
j licking his opposition.
Once Ibis season the Ranchers bave
| defeated the Hovers, this being on
Christmas Pay, but this fixture was in
I the nature of a friendly and with all
players acting in a friendly manner
towards the Christmas cheer that is
prevalent at that period of the year,
little could be gained by a critic on
the side lines as to the merits of
each eleven.
Judging from the interest being
shown in the approaching game yesterday, the C. I'. I!, will b" called upon to provide extra transportation
facilities on Saturdav week, a large
crowd having signified its intention
of making the trip.
Which ever team wins ths game
stands a great chance of securing possession of the Mainland trophy, this
being the^ first year that such a cup
has bt'en~placcd on deck lor competition. ^^^^^
I    The other games in the draw nre'not the case.
New York, Jan. 22.���Mrs Annie
Moore, cf 225 Bast Twelfth street,
told a jury in Judge ("rain's part of
general sessions yesterday of routing
a gang of five east sid. gunmen with
a broomstick. Mrs. Moor.* was called by Millard il. Ellison, assistant dis
trict attorney, as a witness against
Abraham Itoth, charged with robbery
and assault.
Mrs. Moore said that about midnight on December 6 sbe heard cries
cf "Murder 1" and "Thief!" She grabbed a broomstick and sallied forth.
The trouble was in the restaurant on
the ground floor. Five men, armed
with revolvers, were holding up the
patrons, a dozen or more in number,
Mrs. Moore sailed into the gunmen
with her broomstick and routed them.
She dispersed them befcre '.hey rifled
ihe cash drawer, and their loot, according to Mr. Ellison, consisted of
about $150 of the diners' cash und all
of tbe diners' jewelry.
Sigfrid Dlugfelder, a waiter, on
cross-examination told Frank Aranow.
Ivoth's counsel, that lie had no Idea
what was going on when tbe five men
entered and presented revolvers.
"Have you never beard of gunmen
���ir gangs '.'" asked  Mr. Aranow.
"Not until 1 came to New York
City," answered the  witness
"Where did you live before you
came here?"
"Until a few months ago    I  was lh
Mexico."   was   tbe  prompt   answer  ol i
the man of peace.
Samuel Relchbach, who is accused
cf being on,* of tbe rebbers, has pleaded guilty of carrying a revolver illegally, lie bad three in his pockets
when arrested. He is said to have
been tiie gun bearer for tbe gang.

Says She is Daughter of Rich Recluse
Who Died in Squalor���Contests
New  York, Jan. 22.���Another chapter in the strange tale of Dudley Jardine, a rich recluse, who lived for 3tf
years   in   seiualidness   in  tbe  Bowery
under the name o�� William Smith, and
dying   barely   escaped   burial   In  the
Potters'   Field,  was brought to light
yesterday  when  a  woman  who  says
she is the daughter of "William Smith"
came forward, contesting the Jardine*
will and alleging that the old man had
lived a double life for 50 years.
The story told by Mrs.    Anita    McCarthy,  wife of a janitor at 109  University   Place,   who  says  she   is  Jar-
dine's daughter, reads more like a tale-
that   Robert   Louis   Stevenson   miffhr
have   written   of  a   super-Jekyl    and
Hyde than part of what will soon become a curt record and be contested
for tiie facts.
One day last March a doddering oicl
nan dropped In the street and he was
ake.i io nouve.rneur hospital. Me
died and his body was made retutfy
for a pauper burial. Investigatww-i
showed lie was William Smith, a Btiw-
ery lodger, with no friends. Just as
the bexly was ready for Rotters' Field
evidence was found in the man's papers that Smith was Dudley Jardine,.
son o.f a wealthy organ manufacturer.,
and possessor of a fortune
A will was also found which left
his estate, $203,963, to nephews.
nieces and charity. Tie wilL was
drawn  in  1889.
Then little by little the dual life -
of Jardine became known. How he
associated with the unfortunate of
the Bowery, living nearly on sodd'ti
food as befitted William Smith. wbo��

silk-batted station as Dudley Jardine.

led to the new development in tin-
ease. Mrs. Anita Mct'rathy read the-
story, and hurried to a lawyer, sayiuii
"That man was my father."
Her story was kept quiet while the
executor cf the Jardine estate went
