New Westminster has been waiting for promised developments for many a month now, and though steady
progress has been made in the background during all this
time, yet to some anxious'persons it has seemed as if nothing were going to happen after all and this city were again
lo be sidetracked by prosperity as it has been once or
twice in the past.
Luckily, however, there have been enough staunch
-workers among the population not only to buoy up hope
but to undertake the work necessary to make further developments possible in full confidence that those developments would come.
Today realization is on the doorstep and we are in
some measure ready to meet it, in greater measure per-
liaps than many another city devoted more to words than
.deeds would have been. The period of waiting is almost
over and all should take heart and bend their energies to
take advantage of the great things 4hat are coming.
At a recent banquet Alderman White, chairman of
the harbor and industrial committees of the city council,
made an important speech or? these matters. He began
recapitulating with authority the work to be done by the
CL N. R. on the Fraser River, the terminal developments
at Port Mann, the Lulu Island branch and the Woodward's
landing ferry service, and drew particular attention to
the important statement made by Vice-President George
Bury of the C. P. R., with regard to elevators at Coquit-
He then spoke of negotiations with the American Can
���Company and pointed out the importance of .cheap gas
from the industrial standpoint. In providing neither industrial nor harbor facilities was the city building beyond
Its requirements, rather must it be ever on the lookout to
make further advances along these lines if full advantage
is to be taken of the infinite possibilities now coming into

In Paris the Mardi flras festival
is not so generally or lavishly observed as it once waa, probably due to the

draft of the bill lot 2B6 and a government reserve adjoining it on the east,
both lying on the northern shore of
the head of the Inlet, were Included
within the bounds of the city-to-be. Kir.
Frank Dockerill, lessee of thc reserve, does not desire that tho land be
Included within the city boundaries
and the committee was asked to exclude both the reserve and lot 256.
The Port Moody petitioners were
willing and If the attorney-general is
agreeable the land in question will
not bceome part of the city. Reference to the attorney-general la made
because the Port Moody petitioners
agreed with the government to take
into the city boundaries all the land
within the unorganized district lying
hetween Burnaby and the municipality of Coqultlam, some 3100 acres.
The owners of lots 346 and 238.
property lying about half a mile directly east of the head  of the inlet
and adjoining the proposed easterly
limits of the city, petitioned the committee to be Included within the city
boundaries, but their request was denied.
This land lies in the municipality of
Coqultlam and Incorporators of Port j
Moody object to taking ln it because I
is Is saddled with part of the debt of
the municipality and lt Is desired to
start the new city free"of.debt.
Clauses in the bill' regarding the
collection of taxcB in 1913 by the city
of Port Moody are to be redrafted and
presented on Tuesday. It is to be provided that a portion of the taxes shall
go to the province as the city will not
come into existence till at least the
end of the next month.
It Is proposed that Port Moody shall
have eight Instead of five aldermen
as the draft bill provided. This action
will be taken on request of the incor-
i porators.

On February third, 1498, John Cabot
received permission by letters Patent from King Henry VII., "to take
at his pleasure six English ships lu
any port or ports, or otber place with
In our realm of England or obelsant
to that   and them convey or
lead to the land and Isles found by
the said John In our name and by
our commandment*"
The same document authorized him
to "receive into tbe said ablps and
every of them, all such masters, marl
ners, pages, and our subjects as Of
their own free will go and pass with
him to the Bald* land or isleo."
Aud all officers and aubjscts of the
crown were thereby enjoined to help
and "succour the said John" tn his I
undertaking, ln an earlier patent
granted In 1496 the names of John's
three sons are associated -with his
own, but the second patent refers to
the elder Cabot alone.
Probably, however, Sebastian accompanied him when he set sail from
llrlstol ln 1498. and until the recent
discovery that he drew his pension
late in 1499, It Is supposed that John
Cabot died on this second voyage, and
that his son brought home the fleet.

Great Contest Sale
$4000 To Be Expended By The Above To Further Advertise and Increase Our Business
We have been requested by a large circle of our friends
to inaugurate another contest sale, and the wholesale
people have/kindly consented to assist us in moving our
large stock.
There is nc use in going into details re this mode of increasing our output, suffice it
tc say that everyone of our numerous customers who have obtained pianos in the past
from us by this method can testify to the genuineness of this bona fide proposition.
We do everything we promise. AH our Pianos are marked in plain figures. Prices
are not'boosted for this contest. If anyone can prove otherwise we will give One
Thousand in gold to any public institution in this city.
It is co-operation with the wholesale people that enables us to do this.    We are under contract to take ten pianoe for ever*** endovaed  (fry cvtatomer)   certit.cate tve return to them, consequently they increase their output tenfold.    We increase our sale
ten to one over the old Une methods at the same expense and the customer saves from
$75 to $200 on the price of a piano.
"  JUST TO THINK, $75.00 TO $200.00 ACTUAL
To t>e First Five Persons Making or Composing,

"Columbia Piano House"
we will give purchasing cheques for $200. To the next terr
persons making the most words as explained above $150
cheques will be given and so on down to $75 cheques, all
cheques to apply on the purchase of any new piano or
player piano at regular marked prices in our store.
Remember these cheques apply only as so much cash ob the purchase price of a piano
or player piano and not on any other musical instrument. Only one answer considered from each family.
We make bold claim in saying; that we handle nothing but the best dependable goods
obtained from the great piano-making centres of the world.
Write plainly your name and full address, street number, post office; mail br bring to

Besides penetrating the prisons Mr.
Hnrlfleld sought out tin escaped convicts and the brodiage or vagabonds

known as tundras in the north of

ot various kinds thus collected he
divided into three groups; the songs
"f prisoners and escaped convicts,
those of the unhappy creatures con-
il, limed to labor in tlie mines, and
those of the non-Russiai suhjMH
races, such ns the Kirghiz. Ainos,

melodies Mme. Si.niekn says:

Pretty Close This.
Ottawa, Feb. 2.���Ottawa took the
closest game of the season from the
Canadiens at the arena last night
w nn ng by two goals to one. Yne
match was the flrst played under tbe
seven man game and play was very
fast throughout. Checking.was hard
and close, however, so much so that
it was not spectacular play and there
was'little combination on either side.
Canadiens secured a lead of one
goal five minutes after the start on a
iong shot from Donald Smith and
afterwards they played mostly a defence game. There was no score In
the balance of the first; none at all
In the second, but tn the third Ottawa
pressed the play and after four minutes plav Dentson tied the score on a
pretty play.
A few minutes later the entire Ottawa team rushed to the attack and
nets, the
lack of team play which characterizes
the six man game and consequently
the first period was slow and the
score lielng 3 to 1 ln favor ot Quebec.
The players bunched and neglected to
plav their positions.
The remaining periods, however,
furnished brilliant hockey and as excellent a game as tbe professionals
have played here this season. There
was no seorlng in the second period.
In the third Quebec made the score
4 to 2, which was followed quickly by
the braves making It 4 to 3.
With two minutes to play the Indians tied the score. Without intermission the teams started ln to
overtime, the flrst team to score to
be declared winners, according to the
N. H. A. rule.
Close Store at Montreal.
Montreal, Feb. 2.���Going at top
speed from start to finish, it was not
until within 45 seconds of the expiration of the time that the Wanderers
nosed out a 3 to 2 victory over the
Tcrontos on Saturday night. For the
sedoiid time this season O. Cleghorn
through his brilliant rushes saved
overtime being played by securing
the odd goal and scoring tbe victory.
In the opening game ot the return
to seven man play, not only the
Wanderers, but the 3500 persons In
attendance at the arena were treated
to a surprise. The majority of those
who witnessed the match took tin
result of the game as a foregone conclusion and looked for a decisive victory. From the commencement of the
play .lack Marshall's band of youngsters became the aggressors.
For the first twentv minutes they

what arc the merits ot the fd.icatii n
they receive? On this point it is difficult for one who knows no Japanese
tc form an opinion. Though thc school,
musters are badly underpaid, the elementary teaching is probably quite
good. In spite of tlie appalling d.fli-
culty of learning to read and write
Japanese, with its Chinese Ideograph*,
hci-M-il out by two subsidiary "syllabaries" of some 50 characters apiece,
it would seem that practically the
whole younger generation may fairly
be ca'l.'d literate. Certainly there is
no country where the written snd
printed word is more prominent thau
in Japan. Inscriptions and placards,
on s'.one, wood and paper, meet the
eye at every turn. Popular news-
paiieri abound, and thc book stores
of the citie3 nre piled with cheap men-
BziikT- and other indications ol a wide-
reading public.

Ottawa, Feb. 2.���Figures prepared
liy the department of the Naval Service show that the l.aurler navy, the
Rainbow on the I'aclflc and the Nlobe
most df the t(me ln drydoctt on the Atlantic, has been a cestly experiment.
The amount spent on the Naval service, estimating what will be spent
this year, Is $4,237,437.24.
The number of Canadians who have
enlisted on the Nlobe and the Rainbow since the passing of the act contrasts somewhat sharply with the
Liberal idea as to the ease with
which a Canadian navy could be
manned by Canadians.
AgalnBt the picture drawn by the
Honorable William Pugsley the other
day of many thousands of Canadians
serving In the United States navy because tbere was no opportunity ot
serving In Canada, are the departmental totals by provinces, as follows:
Nova Scotia, 162; New Brunswick,
G; I'rlnce Edward Island, 19; Quebec,
44: Ontario ,11 to Manitoba, 1; Saskatchewan, 2; Alberta, 4; British Columbia, 62; a total up to Dec. 15, of
402 officers and men.
During the same period, 64 English
officers and 626 men men bave been
employed on the ships.
The statement shows that the number of men qualifying for service as
eenmen during the period up to January 13 was 78, as follows: Boys, 26;
ordinary seaman, 22; able seaman,
29, and leading seamen, 1.
These have completed their service

country's development. In the same
way  great  things are hoped  for re-

Ottawa, Feb. 2.���The cabinet haa
appointed a fisheries advisory board
to consider the question of the development of the fisheries of Canada.
There will be three committees, Atlantic provinces, prairie provinces and
British Columbia.
The commute for Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta consists of D.
S. Reid, Selkirk; J. F. Sinclair, Prince
Albert, and D. Tegler, Edmonton.
The British    Columbia    committee
consists of D. N. Mclntyre, provincial
deputy commissioner of fisheries, and
the j F.   H.   Cunningham,   Dominion   chief
fisheries Inspector.
Tbe department of marine and fisheries ls to be represented by the principal officers engaged in the administration of fisheries. The deputy
minister will be ex-offlcio chairman
of the board, and other representatives will be the superintendent of
fisheries, assistant to the superintendent, an expert tn curiug and handling
of fish, and the commissioner of fisheries.
For the purpose of dealing with the
f'sheries In different parts of Canada
the board will be divided Into three
cominittees, one for the prairie provinces, one for the Atlantic provinces
and one for British Columbia.
The major portion of the work of
the board will necessarily have to be
done through committees. The board

Reports have reached London of lhe
discovery, near Luxor. Egypt, of a
tomb, which contained one of the I
moit. valuable collections of pre-1
dynastic implements and ornaments
ever found. Tho tomb contained the
dried-up remains of a man lying in
the scmi-embrvonic position.
As the Neolithic Egyptians did not
embrlm their dead, the body WM
nearly crumbled n;> from the wcis-tit
of a stone slab which had been dislodged from its position as the covering of the tomb. Willi the body were
found a unique double-edged bronse
sword in such an excellent state ol
preservation tha', the cutting edge
remains sharp, several long arrow
heads, also in bronw; two gold hair
rin^s and a lot of the we'.l-known
pr9-dynastic pottery.
The tomb was probably that of one
of the warriors of the first dynasty,
during which period the use of bronze
was discovered in Upper Egypt. According to this theory the body is
about six thousand years old.
What happened ?
Why, the law stepped
in, sold the property
and divided the proceeds.

whom he had meant to
leave a small income got
his share in a lump sum.
A wealthy relative to

shares, and were left
without the protection
of a capable and experienced executor.

Mufflers For Aeroplanes.
Recent experiments with a muffling
box on board an aeroplane, made near
Paris, proved successful. The grout,
noise of the motor ordinarily lessens
the comfort in flying aud fatigues the
pilot as well as eau?-s annoyance to
passengers. In military work the noise
prevents the officers from hearing
sounds which come from the ground.
and those would often be a useful lno-
tor in observations. Pilots cannot use
their voices to any extent. Another
point is that were the motor silent
running the observers could hear
sound signals coming from the ground
and could also return signals by using
trumpets of different pitch or sirens as
are used on vessel*. The teat took
place before a military commission,
and during thc ttisrhts it is said Ihat
the noise of the motor was so much
reduced as to allow the pilot, La-
buuret, to speak to the persons on the
ground when he was flying nt 300
feet. The muffler box does not overheat owing to the strong air cooling
wliich it receives. The loss of power
is below 2 per cent., as shown by

" 'D lrling,' he said, taking her slim

" 'Nothing on earth,' she answered,
and then, with a little silvery laugh,
she added. 'Nothing In this world-
