only by the dilatorlness of one or two of the present lot holders who

It has been argued by those who criticise the harbor improvement
plans and the manner In which ttey are being carried out that the balf
million dollars passed by the ratepayers for tho unit to the market wharf
will not bo sufficient to finish the job. In answ-r to this, figures from
the office of the engineer in charge and from the city hall show: That

Presidio. Tex., Jan. 11.���Twenty-
eight hundred Mexican federal soldiers,
six generals, 200.000 rounds of ammunition, two caunons, four large field
pieces, and 1,500 civilian refugees were
in the custody of the United States
army border patrol today as the result of the federal army's evacuation
of Ojinaga, Mex, its flight to American
territory and the occupation of the
Mexican village by General Francisco
Villa's rebels last night.
Appalling Distress.
The distress of the refugees Is appalling. They have scant food and no
shelter. Men, women, children, dogs
and chickens and cattle are packed together in a space covering several
acres. About them are scattered all
the wreck and turmoil which they
brought in fleeing from the Ojinaga
Orgent requests for the immediate
removal of the soldiers and refugees to
some other place were sent by Major
McNamee to the war department
through Brigadier General Bliss.

A verdict of accidental death was
brought in by the jury at the Inquest
into the death of Miss Lillian Inkster. a Royal Columbian hospital
nurse, at the Great Northern Brunette
street crossing on Priday night. Coroner McQuarrie suggested that the
railway company instal gates to be

The funeral will take place from
the Nurses' Home at the hospital at
10 o'clock this morning, with Rev.
John Inkster of Victoria, uncle of the
deceased, officiating. Interment will
take place in the Fraser cemetery.
To The News yesterday, Miss Scott,
superintendent of the hospital, stated
"that Miss Inkster had been at the
hospital for the past two years and
nine months and with the exception of
a short time to make up owing to
sickness, would' have soon completed
her three years' work. She not only
had cur affection, but our admiration,
and her unfortunate demise has been
a shock to all tbe staff at the institution."

out the sign of an error.   On the other hand, it is only fair i
to assume that there is a possibility of no mistakes having been made.
In the main, however, the harbor improvement
scheme, as it stands today, with one-fifth of the work
done, presents the same picture, the same arguments in
its favor, and the same reasoning against it, as were to be
found when it first was submitted to the votes of the ratepayers. It was passed by those votes, it was put under way
by the city council in good faith and now there are some
who advocate its abandonment, or such alterations as
woulu amount to the same thing.
���No sane person requires to lie told what happens to;I
the man who swaps horses while crossing a stream. The
harbor improvement scheme has been approved by the
ratepayers, it has been put under way and for the credit
of the city, it must be finished. The Dominion government has undertaken to spend millions at the mouth of
the river to clear the way for ocean-going craft to the
docks that are planned along Westminster's waterfront,
but it is a certainty that the Dominion government will

| R. S. Sperling Points Out Meaning of
Recent Decisions of Directors of
B. C. E. R.
At the offices of the B. C. E. R. a
statement    from    General    Manager
Sperling was issued Saturday commenting on the reports of the annual
meeting ol the company's shareholders as previously given in these
columns, and staling that the article
agreed in general v, itli private advices he had received concerning the
"The pointed discussion at the meeting," said Mr. Sperling, " niean.-i that
the company can during 1914 outer
upon no capital expenditure except
such as may be imperatively necessary. During tho year under review
ul the annual meeting the company
and its subsidiaries expended $9,500,-
OOll on capital aCOCunt, but in view of
the strong sentiments expressed by
the shareholders at the meeting in
question the management will be com-
pelled to curtail capital expenditure
this year to a minimum.
Low  Returns.
"The conditions leading to some of
the sentiments expressed at the meeting by shareholders are due to two
causes���the low average return given
the company on its investment, and
the many disturbing reports which are
constantly circulated against the com
pany. 1 know that it was as a result
of such expressions that during 1918
(he l.ondon board was often approached by shareholders to withhold capital expenditure altnos'. entirely. The
board, however, did not deem it fair
to like this drastic step and even during the difficult conditions prevailing
last year, did make very considerable
capital outlay lo meet public demands and convenience.
Higher Interest.
"Concerning the shareholders' opinion as to the return on the company's
investment, there was certainly sonic
ground for the statemnts made at the
meeting..   During Inl:! every Canadian
city, municipality or industrial enterprise   which   secured   money   on   the
London   market   was  obliged   to   pay
higher interest rates than in previous
years.    Yet at the annual meeting our
shareholders   were  compelled  to consider a report which showed an even
smaller return on the capital Invested
;lhan  in  previous yrars,  and  to  note
the  opinion   expressed   by  the   chairman to the effect that next year's re-
\ port  might   not  be  even  as  good.    I
j will   leave   il   to   any   business   man
! faced   with   such   a   condition   as   to
whether  be   would  not  have  spoki n
just as did some of our shareholders
at the meeting In question.
Large  Investment.
"I have time and again made statements to the public as to the company's average return of 4 1-4 to 4 1-2
' per cent on the total investment bring but a meagre yield, a percentage
which would not satisfy any business
man on this coast when considering
an investment proposal. Vet that is
all the business of the B. ('. E5. R.
yields even after its shareholders
have placed the enormous investment
of $4.r>,000,000 in British Columbia in
such form as to very materially assist
in tin development of the provi.ice. I
hope that ihe reported remarks of the
company's shareholders will set at
rest the reports which have been constantly circulated of recent years as
to the cornpany returning large dividends. Were such the case the shareholders would certainly have accepted
without comment the suggestion ot
the directors that a new Issue be authorized as undoubtedly they would
be only too willing to add to a profitable investment.
Affects of Agitation.
"With reference to the agitation
against the B. C. Electric which are
constantly being promoted, reports
concerning which are being carried to
the old country, I am privately advised that because of such attacks the
confidence of many of the company's
shareholders as well as others who
have made investments in British Columbia is often severely shaken. In
the report of the meeting I note that
one shareholder stated that should
these agitations bo continued the flow
of capital to this province would be
slackened as investors would rather
take bank interest, which was certain, than run the risk of investments,
the stability of which was subject ;o
constant attack. I personally know
that the remarks of this shareholder
express the opinion of many old country investors.
"With the chairman of the board of
directors, R.  M. Hcrne-Payne, a man
1 who   has   probably   done   more   than
I any   other   old   country   financier   to
bring  British  Columbia to the attention of the investing public in Great
Britain, 1 believe that the responsible
and  reasonable  business  interests  of
���the province will not endorse the attacks which have been made upon the
company, and  that    the    responsible
with  which  the  company  has  made
agreements will not, because of clamor which dees not recognize that there
are two Bides to every case, take action which would be construed by the
investing public of the old country as
a violation of solemn pledges and
Mutual Interests.
"The B. ('. Electric," continued Mr.
Sperling,   "dees   not    ask     anything
more   tnan   any   man   expects   either
from   his  business    or    employment,
namely, an adequate return. The share
: holders have invested milllions in the
' province  and  all  they  ask is a reasonable  yield   on     their    investment
without constant attacks    from    this
that and the other source, which attacks result in  lessening their confidence in the country as a reliable and
satisfactory  field  for  investment."
|    In conclusion. Mr. Sperling said: "I
���think il only proper that I should re-
I iterate   the   words   of   my   chairman
( when  he said  that  the public should
I appreciate how closely the home market in  l-ondon, interested in all  Brlt-
i ish   Columbia  investments,  is  dependent on the success of the B. C. Electric   railway,   and   consequently   how
closely  the  interests of the province
are identified with the interests of our
cpmpany.    Any action  tending to depreciate   the  credit  of  our  company
must directly affect the flow of British capital in this province."

I be the majority In my favor on Thursday,
"1 know," smiled the mayor, "that
every candidate for civic honors Is fig-

there is no valid reason why I should
not be re-elected, and I am confident
the people will send me back to the

clean campaign all the way through;
there will be no mud-slinging on either
side. I know Mr. Johnston would not
tolerate it for u moment and neither
will  I.    We'll fight fair."
Mr. Gray then proceeded to give a
resume ol the important work of the
' past year, and outlined the policy he
will follow after re-election,
The Segregated Area.
I    "On Sept. 24 the police commission- I
ers  were notified by the chief of po-'
lice  that he had   received  a copy  of,
the amendment to the Criminal Code
Of  Canada.    This  legislation   was  as-
sented to on June 6. 1913,
I     "A   meeting  of  the  police  comniis-
' sioncrs was arranged and Rev. J. S.
Henderson was notified to attend, he
having expressed  a desire to do so,
, but through another important engagement could not attend. When he notified me to this effect I informed
him that we would cal 1 a special
meeting lo deal with any matters in*
had to put before the commissioners.
"Early in October a petition was
circulated and later on presented to
the council asking to have the law
enforced in the restricted district.

Imember, while receiving a majority of

Municipal Ownership.

the monopolies for the same reason
that I believe in ownership of parks

Good  Investments.
"Good sanitary conditions, well lighted  streets,  public  parks, pure water,
play grounds, fir,? halls, first class up*

city  with  these Iii bound to advance.

should be in a position to take advantage,   in  as   far  as  possible,   to   have
i public  ownership  of  these  essentials.
Frame Buildings in Fire Limts.
"We    are    endeavorag  to  have  all
frame buildings    eventually    removed
from the fire limits, and have adopted
the method of allowing repairs provided   the   owner   consents   to   sign   an
agreement to have the  building  removed in half of the estimated life

Willing Service.
"In conclusion I have Berved the
nebple to ilu* best of my ability and
have practically spent my whole time
on city work. If it Is the wish of the
ratepayers that I should again serve

Reasons Why Gray Should

Why should A. W. Cray be elected'yet why Gray should not get a second
mayor of New Westminsfr for 1014?"
A number of prominent men of this
city yesterday volunteered to answi r
the question, each according to his
view. The reasons given varied greatly, but one strong note to be found In
practically every answer is the advisability of giving the present incumbent a second term.

"Mayor Gray has had to work under
adverse conditions and circumstances,
and I must say he has made the best
out of his opportunities. As far as
his work generally Is concerned I am
perfectly satisfied, both as a ratepayer and a business man, and I know of
hundreds ot others who are equally
pleased. He has a thorough grasp of
matters appertaining to the civic administration now and for my pan I believe his re-election for another year
is fully warranted."

English Soccer Competition Shows Un-
certainty cf Game���Four Leaders
Go Under.
The. defeat of Manchester United,
Newcastle United, Derby County and
Everton in the first round of the English cup formed the features of the
games  played  Saturday  afternoon.
Although in every round of the competition surprises are general little
was thou.ht that four clubs of the
calibre as the above aud who have
been fighting near the top for years
past should be knocked out of the
fight in the opening stages.
Glossop defeating Everton and Swindon Town nosing out a win over Manchester United tells the tale of the remarkable improvement iu play nf the
second division and the Southern
league clubs. Swindon is beading the
Southern division and look to be lhe
1914 champions but little was thought
that the eleven could defeat such a
strong club as Manchester United.
Sheffield Dnited'S 5-0 defeat of Newcastle United on the northern grounds
was a brilliant one, while it was expected that Derby county on the baseball grounds could emerge from its
fight against Northampton.
Six draw games wen* played, the
feature of these being Leicester's tie
with the Tottenham Hotspurs on Ihe
former's grounds. The following are

Washington, Jan. 11.���Congres will
start tomorrow upon the second stage
of the long regular session, with the
calendars of both houses crowded
with legislation of far-reaching character. Refreshed by nearly three
weeks' vacation, the complete relaxation since President Wilson convened the* special tariff-currency session
last April, senators and representatives returned to Washington today
keenly interested in the prospective
developments of the next few months.
Regulation of the trusts, through
further corrective and prohibitory legislation wil Ihold much of the attention of both houses, but other sub-
j cts are to share the legislative
arena with the Hepubllcan senators.

Salt Lake City, .Ian. ll.--Police of
this city have thrown out. a dragnet
for two masked men who walked into
the grocery store of John Q. Morrison
here shortly before midnight last night
and shot down Morrison in his tracks.
Arling Morrison, a son who ran to the
cash register of the store and obtained a pistol with which he fired at
the murderers, was shot and instantly
killed. Morrison died at the hospital.
I The shot of the slain lad is believed to have taken effect as cue of the
1 murderers was heard to gasp "he hit
me," as he ran from the store. The
police believe the murder was in re-

' resulted in the killing of one of the

Selig Drama in Two Parts,
This is a gripping and surprising play, changing
from the very acme of excitement and joy to fiery
hate and then to sullen, gray hostility on the part of
a temperamental actress, who losses her fiance
through her own foolish impulsiveness, and spends
an unhappy life, only cheered by the phantoms of the
past. It is an unusually strong play and is interesting in a series of dissolves, making the psychological
values very telling.

"Nero and Britannicus," a tragedy in
i three parts, will be the feature film
��� at the Edison    theatre    today.    This
film which is hand colored was acted
: by thi?  all  star cast  from  the Odeon

throne has been usurped by his treacherous step-brother. Britannicus, alarmed by these reports, hastens to Rome
to claim  the  throne and  is met  by
Nero,  who  cunningly  decides  to  let
jthe people decide.   Nero Is hailed by
the people as tbeir ruler, to the disgust of Britannicus, wbo informs bis

i lists   her  influence    to    recover  the

Narcissus who, instead of delivering

No Scientists In Burglary.
"Scientific burglary absolutely does
not exist." says M. Xavler Gulcln.rd.
one of the foremost detective authorities of Purls. And away at one sweep
of otileial truth vanishes the walking
wonder of housebreaking and safe
cracking against whose miraculous
equipment it were vuiu to set up ordinary bolts and liars. Along with-the
scientific burglar, too. we may place
in the gallery of the nonexistent the
social highwayman, tbe gentleman burglar, the Arseiie Lupins and all their
class of gallant, Indomitable offenders.
"What people do not realize," M.
Guichord continues. "Is that burglars
belong to an inferior grade of humanity and are very seldom intelligent"
Plain  facts  of  record   have  shown
over and over that n career of crime
does not pay.    Nor does it appeal to
< the   intellect.     A    ninn   with   brains
enough to be n scientific burglar would
c<uke an easier and better living with-
! out risks in some honest line.    As for
i tho romance of crime,  it exists only
| in   books,   and   the   man   wbo   writes
about it knows better than to seek it
through experience.���New York World.

Semiprecious Metals.
It appears from recent geological
purvey publications that the "genii*
precious" metals are copper, lend and
zinc. Where quicksilver and tin get
off on this classification we are not Informed. Aluminium also sometimes
sells higher than the three lirst mentioned nnd antimony for more thnn
lead aud zinc. These are probably the
quasi precious metiils. When we were
younger the metals were classed ns
precious and common, we believe. Now
probably Iron is alone in lhe "common" category. What Is tbe use nny-
wny���If there are no privates In nn
srmy what is the joy in being n corporal, and why "semiprecious" it there
is going to be only Iron besides'." Ln

that the salary of the latter wa*i $350

Still a Deficit.
Councillor Macpherson went into financial figures, making a claim that if
tbe Toledo, Ohio, agreement, w nt
through tbe municipality, instead of
having money on hand, would b*e in
the "hole" somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000.
Th't Edmonds representative created some laughter when, mentioning
the personalities thrown across the
platform at the Hamilton road school-
hcuse the previous evening, he askfd
the chairman to pull blm up should he
border on personal issues.
In closing the candidate asked support on his record as councillor for one
year, stating that he never missed
one council or committee meeting.
Taxes Not Paid.
Reeve McGregor first mentioned
that had every taxpayer paid his levy
in 1913 ami had the council been in a
position to figure on same being paid
the tax rate could and would have
been lowered 25 to' 30 per cent. The
1913 council look (surer a $55,000 balance in unpaid taxes from the 1912
council, but this year the 1914 coun-
Cll would have $200,000 to spend of
1918 taxes. He claimed his opponents
had not gone deep enough in financial
Figures to point out the proper position.
Reeve McGregor upset the inference that the administration had not
attempted to sell the bonds, reviewing
the situation from the council of 1912
i<* 1914.
The reeve claimed that the waterworks investment would turn out a
valuable one, that the time was coming when the pipes would be tapped by
all residences and claimed a little of

Vancouver water to the extent of $10,-

Created Laughter.
W. II Madili, who has entered the
fray this time in ward two. first
touched upon D. C. Patterson's views,
who had said, "I am worth three
times ns much as Rose and Madili
combined." Mr. Madili stated that if
that was so, perhaps Mr. Patterson
would be able to buy a few of Burna-
l.y's   bonds,     i Laughter.I

Claimed that his experience was such
as quoted above. He was a mechanic
with 100 per cent, efficiency. Mr. Patterson claimed lie was "chock full" of
ideas, but us he had only been allowed
ten minutes, instead of the two hours
and a half required, he did not propose
to go into details.
Attacks School Board.
Charles Allen of Kast Burnaby, running In ward three, took a slam at the
administration, claiming that the
"hay seeds" of years ago were better
than the present council. He claimed
that the school trustees were just as
guilty as the councillors in the over
expenditure ami created no little
amusement when be emulated the admiral In II. M. S. Pinafore "with his
si;*tnrs and his cousins and his aunts."
by slating that the employment system in force was too much of a family
Offers No Excuses.
Councillor Coldicutt. also from
ward three, stated that he had no ex
cuses to otter for his work, that he
had served under ihe administrations
of Reeves Byrne, Wtart and McGregor
and during three years on the council
had missed only one meeting. He defended the polios department and
claimed that the staff at the municipal hall had beeu reduced to the lowest possible minimum, councillor
Coldicutt defended the laying of a
main along t ie Johnston road by stating that it was for the use of Hurquit-
lam residents and of supplying Coquitlam with water.
Ot'.,i Decker! was very brief in his
address, burning up but i*ui minutes
of his allotted ten.
William Bevan, running in ward
one. sprang a monlogue that had lhe
Orpheum circuit looking like n third
rarer Tli is is Mr. Hevan's fourth attempt to secure election and he stated
that during this period he had been
securing municipal education, although be would have like to have got
It from Ihe inside instead of plugging
along from outside. He thought that
Reeve McGregor and his council
should be started on the toboggan
slide, but followed up that remark by
claiming he was a booster anil not a
knocker. He was out for ward one as
usual along with Mr Oeckert and
Mr. Stride, knowing the latter to h*
gentle and harmless, lie knew that if
elected and found himself ln the miu
ority with the present council they
would get his "goat." Chairman Jackson's clock pointed to the ten minutes
having expired, so Mr, Bevan retired
with, "Well, do the hist you can for
tin, anyhow."
His Fourth Attempt.
Councillor Stride opened up a ripple of laughter by stating, "Well, this
is the third time Bevan is running,"
which was boosted to roars when Mr.
Bevan corrected him by stating it was
no less than four attempts. Mr.
Stride has been a resident of Burnaby
ether with the present council. Hi
had plenty of time to devote to the
Threatens Secession.
Councillor Fau-Vel, ttr- last speaker,
made an able defence of North Burns-
by   ratepayers,   claiming    that    they'
wera paying fcr work which had been j
.lone in the south and were not kick- j
Ing.     If   the   south   persisted   in   this |
knocking of tje north, secession would j
surely take place.    The people of the |
north  weM asking for a square deal,

would do unless a change was made.
A vote of thanks was passed to o. J.
