Sacramento, Cal., Dec. 31.���Heavy
rains during the last three days over
the Sacramento valley and high up in
the Sierra mountains causing an un
usual melting of snow, have resulted
tonight in making the rivers of the
Sacramento watershed torrential
streams.
Train service is almost paralyzed

The city commission ordered out
a large number of laborers tonight to
watch the levees protecting the south

feared. These men blostered up the

Auburn. N Y , Dec. 31 The convicts of Auburn prison have aropted
a new year's resolution, pledging
themselves to good conduct. To make
the resolution effective, they have organized a good conduct league, by
means of which they will have a
share in maintaining prison discipline. Convict public opinion is the
weapon by which the resolution will
be   enforced
The organization was perfected, it
was announced :c night by a cosatnit
tee of fifty convicts elected by ballot.
The scheme, which is an experimental
one,   was suggested   by  Thomas   Motl
Osborne, chairman of the state com
mission for prison reform, who recently was a voluntary inmate of Auburn.
All convicts will be admitted to the
league, but under lis rules bad conduct will forfeit membership and certain privileges The aim of the organisation as si-, forth in the resolution Is mental, moral and civic bet

ances is that they may have a happy and prosperous New

months in their history.   Here's hoping.
This is the stage of the game when the water wagon

all in all, the work done for the Royal City by her own|armfuis of scrap iron and 200 feet 0
folk has been good work.   Some mistakes undoubtedly  ' ""	
have occurred, but men who never make mistakes never
do anything else worth mentioning.
Right at this moment, with her hand on the doorknob
of 1914, New Westminster has two obligations staring
her in the face. One is her harbor, with its needs, and
the other is the vital necessity of nursing the industries
she already possesses and of adding others to them. These
are two matters, but in the future development of the
town they will go hand in hand. To give the industries
,the scope they deserve the harbor must receive the best
of attention and to make the harbor a success the Industrie.- must be here.
There have been a number of differences of opinion
along lioth these lines, differences, not as to what should
be done in the great scheme of development, but of how
it should be done. For this reason it is essential that a'
settlement be reached as soon as possible, all private quarrels sunk for the general good and a united front presented
to the world in one enormous effort, bound to be successful, to place New Westminster on the map as the
greater-1 fresh water port of the British Pacific coast.

With these materials he harnessed u
small stream near his cabin, led the
water to a crude overshot wheel buil
of hewed logs, and then connected
tliis wheel with the arrastra, in tho
pan of which h'% bculders were revolved to act as ere crushers when
the power waa turned on.
The i ntire mill practically cost
nothing but the labor of Stanton and
his partner, "declares Callaghan, yet
;wilh. it liny were crushing ere al Ilie
rale of a toil a day when Callaghan
left the north a fortnight ago and
had been doing so for six weeks or
mere���and the ore cruahed assayed
from $30 to ?7,"i per ton.
"Siunton waa not ready to make his
cleanup when  I  lefi," said Callaghan, !
"lie was eager to take advantage of |
every  day  until  the  snow  came  and !
should  have    col   In    at  least    eight j
weeks of work with the odd little mill
and wound up with $4,000 or more in
gold for his season's work."
"The mill scheme worked like a
charm. When Stanton and his partner ai noon came down the hill to
their cabin from where they were
drifting en the land they dragged
down tour sacks of ore on a log sled j
unci dumped il Into ill" arrastra.
When they came down to the cabin at
niRlu they repeated Ihe performance.
The water kept the mill going night
and  day   without  attention.
"The best pan of the story Is that
one of those gel-rich promoters was
responsible for Stanton's building tin-
���mill. -The promoter wanted to tie tli"
property up on a loni: time bond.
Stanton and his partner demanded
money down. 'What will you do with
���the ground', demanded the promoter
scornfully. 'Do with it?' said Stanton,
Why,   we'll  work  il  ourselves.'
And before the promoter was out
of sijr.ht tin y were planning the arrastra. Their vein runs from six
inches to two and a half feet In width
and bids fair to make a mine. With
the mmiey they hammered out this
past season, Stanton and his partner
are going to run H00 feet of tunnel
this winter and enlarge their arrastra
to handle two and a half or three
tons of c re a day.'1
Callaghan says that between 200
and 300 miners are at work develop'

My office window
faced a street, close
to the railway freight
sheds.
All day long a steady
stream of trucks and
lorries  lumber by
loaded  with   boxes,
barrels and bales.
One truck I noticed
the other afternoon
was particularly interesting.      No two
boxes were the sams,
and  stencilled   on   the
end of each was the name
of some  well-known pro
duct    soa;>,  tobacco,   socks,
breakfast   food,   cocoa,  port,
tea,   chocolates,   perfumery  and
bakin;; powder.
Gathered there in prosaic wooden
boxes were the results ot thousands
of hand's labor in all parts*f the
world.
The cocoa had been
grown in Brazil,
shipped to Bristol,
transhipped to Montreal and finally
distributed from
Toronto.
The  tea   wan gather e d  by  swart-
skinned   natives   of
the romantic island
of  Ceylon;  from
&unny Portugal the
luscious,    big    grapes
had been gathered years
ago,   fermented,  bottled
and   branded   with   a famous
name;   from Egypt had come the
cotton and from South America the
dyes that entered into the product
finally stamped with the brand of a
well-known hosiery.
There, behind that obviously prosaic truck-load of freight waa the whole romance
of modern commerce the skilled production, the universal demand for food, drink
and raiment, and the world-wide distribution of the things we use every day.
And then I speculated why we use these things every day, instead of some other
things; and that brought me plump back to my own job of advertising.
The names of some of the boxe3 on the lorrie were known everywhere to-day, but
had been unknown a few years ago; and I saw then more clearly than ever before
that Advertising is really a great channel digger. It is like the Panama Canal. You
can sail from Montreal to Vancouver now, around the Horn. You can get there,
but it is going to take months. A year or so from now you will sail through the
Panama Canal and chop the journey to less than half. A new channel will have
been dug.
The great names in commerce to-day are those of the manufacturers who have let
modern advertising steam-shovel a channel across the isthmus of distributing
difficulties.
The great names in the commerce of to-morrow will be those of men who widen and
dredge this channel so that the greater traffic may pass smoothly and quickly from
the source of production to the homes of the consumer.

H Is commas opinion that Standard
Oil Interests are pushing the United
States on towards Intervention in
Mexico, and ii i.; certain that no lovi
is lost between the great Dritisli
(Pearson) oil concerns In Mexico and
the huge United Stales trust
The report thai Lord Cowdray
head of the Pearson lyndieate, bad
supplied General Huerta with sufficient funds to run the provincial gov
eminent of Mexico a report later denied altogether by Lord Cowdray
serves to Illustrate the extent of thi
nobleman's Interests In the republic
of the south which is giving the United States BUCb ii great deal I t worry
just now.
Lord Cowdray better known as Sir
Weetman Pearson bus Interests so
i vast in Mexico that it might be well
worth bis while to further the affairs
of any government in that country
which seemed to have a good chance
Of survival.
When Diaz was president and Lord
Cowdray was Sir Weetman Pearson
they worked together mightily to iin
prove Mexico. Hoth made much money
out of it, but it is not to be di nled
that this extraordinary contractor and
engineer helped to change the face of
naiure in Mexico and did some marvels o: building work. More than
that, his interests take in oil wells of
unusual capacity, so thai he is a rich
man indeed from the work he has
done In Mexico alone. And bis Mexican achievements are not the complete tale of his activities.
Extensive  Harbor  Work.
li was some years ago that the firm
S. Pearson & Son, Ltd., look aud
completed a $6,000,000 contract for extensive harbor work In Vera Cruz,
Laler came the gigantic task of draining the valley of Mexico with a canal
which cost $15,000,000. These tas-ks
were done and well done, so that la'er
when President Din/, contemplated
the reconstruction and completion of
the Tehuantepec railway it was hot
unnatural that the Pearson firm
should get the Job.
It was In lHO'J that this work was
started. A limit of 51 years was set
for the task, involving the construction of the railway and of proper terminal points at the Atlantic and Pacific ends, so as to compete with the
Panama canal for continental traffic,
and the trade lo the Par East.
The railway has been completed on
nn dern lines with steel rails of 80
pounds, although there was much
rock cutting and other hard work to
be dune. The more spectacular part
of the job was at the terminal ports.
At   Salina   Cruz   the   work   was   an
undertaking of considerable difficulty
because thai Pacific port was nothing
but an open roadbed. Without a.-sist
aie-i' from nature the contractor
evolved an outer and inner harbor by ,
menus of vast breakwaters of masonry. The blocks In some cases weighed from an to 4o ions apiece. Tin

Air or Moisture Iri the Tube Will Render It Unreliable.
Don't cipect n barometer to tell yon
the truth about the wenther until you
bine tested it thoroughly. Two common causes for unreliability nre air
nnd water mixed With the mercury in
the tube. These cnu be expelled by
boiling the mercury.
In order to test a barometer let It
hang for n time In the proper position;
(ben gently nnd with care Incline It so
(hat the mercury may strike ngnlnst

but if the sound is dull and muffled It
Indicates the presence of belli air nud
moisture. The presence of nir ulone Is
shnjvn by minute bubbles.
If at any time the mercury seems to
adhere to the tube, even In the slightest degree, and the convex surface assumes a more flattened form It Is safe
lo conclude that either nir or moisture
Is present. In any of these eases the
Instrument should be pill Into expert

MAGIC OF A MAGNET.
Makes a Chain Rigid Enough Far s
Man to Climb It.
A Berlin correspondent of the Selen-

experiment Hint was oiiident the works
of one of tbe large (iorinun lunnufac-
(uring linns with one of (heir lifting
magnets.
A chain, fastened (o (be ground und
currying nn Iron bull at Us free end.
wus raised to n vertical position by
the approach of (ho great lifting magnet suspended from ti crane.
Tbe attraction of the magnet was so
strong thut tbe chain remained in u
perfectly vertical position. A grown
up workman climbed up the chain
without disturbing its rigidity in the
least. The chain seemed to flout lu ulr
The magnetic pull on Hie bull win
greater than the gravitational pull on
(he man.
This remarkable experiment shows
the enormous power of til traction ex-
erted by the lifting magnets that nre
used in Iron nnd steel works to entry
about iron material of every description. The magnets enable (he operator to seize iron material at any point
desired nnd convey It lo nny other
point within the range of Ihe crane.
Incidentally the use of lifting magnets
bus greatly diminished Hie risk of arel-
detils In the moving of heavy masses
of iron.
