Mexico City, Feb. 13.���At 8 o'clock
thla evening it waa reported that Oeneral Diaz bad demanded the surrender of the national palace. All through
the day tbe rebel batteries of heavy
guns were throwing a fierce fire of
ahrapnel around the palace. Many
-of the shells dropped into the Zocalo.

soldiers were compelled to move to
Before dark the fire on both sides
was Intermittent but apparently less
vigorous from tbe federals. The government troops were receiving ammunition ln small consignments, and
It was evident that tbey were running
The fifth day of the battle began at
8 o'clock, a battery of federal artillery
opening fire on the arsenal, but although the bombardment was kept
up without cessation for an hour or
more. It bad no appreciable effect
upon tbe rebel defenses.
Diaz Was Ready.
That Diaz had prepared for the
threatened overwhelming movement
by the government, which Madero
promised would be carried through
today, was shown by the fact that he
had stationed sharpshooters on the
roofs of adjoining buildings, had dispatched a force outalde his lines to
the west of the city and had placed
his heaviest guns in positions commanding all the approaches to his
General Huerta, commanding the
federals, had promised to rush the
fortifications of the rebels but he
elected instead to employ bis artillery
from the various points of vantage.
Only once In the early part of the day
did the Infantry come Into action.
During the heavy shelling of the
palace, Diaz apparently moved some
of hia forces to the southeast of the
city, and shortly after 12 o'clock the
palace was made the target of both
shells and rifle fire from that district.
Coincidentally, the rebels succeeded
In extending their zone of activity ln
other directions.
Clearing the Way.
The rebel fire toward tbe palace
was intended not only to bring about
Its surrender but had for ita purpose
alao the clearing of the intervening
high buildings of machine guns and
riflemen and of silencing the federal
battery operating in San Juan Letran
street, at a point midway between the
arsenal and tbe palace.
Thla shelling wrought havoc among
the buildings In that section of the
city. Tbe American club waa riddled.
The Interior of the aecond and third
floors were completely wrecked. Of
40 Americana within at the time, several had almost miraculous escapes
from death.
Seven shells tore through the walls.
The flrst two crashed through the
reading room on the front of tbe second storey. The others entered above
tbe second storey on the sides.
Club Gets  It Hot
In addition to the shell fire tbe Interior as well as the exterior of the
American club waa perforated in
scores of places by bullets from rifles
and machine guna.
The shells which entered the reading room tore their way through the
Btone window casings, demolishing a
heavy leather chair and exploded
with terrific force. Shrapnel was*
hurled In all directions, cutting the
furniture to ribbons, ripping the floors
and walls and puncturing ln a score of
places the portraits which were about
the rooms.
The portrait most seriously damaged was that of President Madero.

Cessation      of   Preaent
It la evident from tbe letters received at the school board meeting
last night tbat dissatisfaction exists
among some of the city school teachers as to their salaries. Three teachers wrote to tbe board complaining
that the salaries they were receiving
were not large enough and that better remunerations were given In Vancouver.
"Is it an oversight or not that 1

Paris. Feb. 13.���There la Ml centre
where the disappearance of tbe war
cloud would be received with greater
pleasure than In Parts. Ever since
September the ahadow of the Balkan
complications, and then the actual operations of war, have influenced trade
and commerce adversely. The reason
la tbe sensitiveness of the market. Inseparable from fura and furbelows,
feathers, silks, aatina and Jewelry,
which constitute the basts of French
Industry. Prosperity la great, bnt It
la a prosperity dependent on fashion
and ita changes, and hence la subject
to constant fluctuations..
A sign of better times, however, la
the immense amount ot rebuilding
now going on in tbe city. Old homes
are coming down to give place to
abowy, new business premises, over
laid with ornamentation.

The plans of the Canadian Northern
Pacific Railroad Company with respect to tbe construction of terminals
and ebort line extensions on the lower
mainland and other parts of British
Columbia are fully outlined ln a measure now before the provincial legislature at Victoria, which contemplates
the rendering of further assistance to
that company.
The bill shows that the C. N. P. R.
proposes to raise by bonds $10,000,000
for the construction of terminals at
New Westminster, Port Mann, Steveston, Victoria and Union Bay and
$11,865,000 for the extension of an
aggregate of 339 miles of short lines,
44 of which will be between Westminster and Vancouver, Westminster
and SteveBton and Victoria and Union
Bay. The government proposes to
guarantee the bonds by which the
money will be raised.
From the plans lt is evident that
the railroad wlll make New Westminster the junction of ita main line running Into Vancouver with the Steveston branch. Union Bay Is where
the Island terminal of the ferry system for tbe Fraser river will be located.
Coet of Terminals.
With regard to the New Westminster terminal it is stated on the authority of Mr. W. G. Swan, divisional
enginetr of the company, that the
terminals at New Westminster alone
will cost beyond $3,000,000. Approximately $2,000,000, lt is also stated,
haB already been expended In securing a right-of-way. The estimated
total coet of the terminals here and
at Port Mann, Vancouver and Ste-
, veeton is $26,000,000.
With regard to the short line ex-
I tensions the bill provide* tor a suar-
lantee  ot    principal   and    Interest ot
'bonds   to   an   amount   not   exceeding
886,000    per mile for , the following

commencement and completion shall
be extended by tbe government by
order In council.
According te Mr. W. G. Swan the
construction on the Lulu Island Une
will be started on March 1, to be followed immediately by the work in the
city proper.
The bill cites that the province shall
not guarantee the principal and Interest on the bonda for the above mentioned lines until the parent Canadian
Northern Railway Company ahall haye
entered Into a satisfactory agreement
to indemnify the province against aU
payments which it may make nader

London, Feb. 13.���Commander B. R.
G. Evans sends further particulars tn
a despatch from Christ Church, N. Z..
of the Ill-fated B^'teh Antarctic ex
pedltion. The party under Captair
Scott, after leaving Commander Evans
January 4, 1912, marched an average
of 12 miles daily and reached the
Pole on January 17. Captain Scott's
observations by the theodolite on
January 18 fixed the Pole within half
mile of Amundsen's observations.
They marched there and planked the
Union Jack in latitude 88.
Tbe Scott party had followed
Amundsen's track and found his camp
within three mtles of the Pole.
Several photographs of Scott and
hla comrades at the Pole were obtained, together with views of Amund-
sen's tent.
From tbe time of reaching the Pole
Petty Officer Evans' condition gave
great anxiety, but good progress waB
made on the return journey over the
great plateau in medium weather. Before descending the Bcardmore glacier

How Evans Died.
The descent of Beardmore glacier
was accomplished ln thick weather
and deep snow greatly delaying the
march. Captain Scott dates tbe beginning of the failure of Petty Officer
Edgar Evans from the time of reach

to them on the plateau, and tn the
descent of tbe Beardmore glacier
when tbe party got amongst very

The railway legislation brought down in the House
at Victoria affects New Westminster directly and is
therefore of special interest to all in this city. The bill
in question guarantees the bonds of the C. N. R., capital
and 4V-2 per cent, interest, to the tune of another $10,000,-
000 for the purpose of constructing terminals at Port
Mann, New Westminster and Vancouver, including the
tunnel into False Creek and the fifteen miles of the Victoria, Steveston & Union Bay line.
We are not concerned here with the wisdom or otherwise of this use of the province's credit but simply with
the bearing of these developments on the future of New
Westminster. It has now been made quite clear that
New Westminster is to be planted squarely on the main
line of Canada's second great transcontinental railway.
What is more it is to be an important junction at the point
where the lines to Vancouver and Steveston divide.
Further information reveals the fact that the Canadian Northern has set aside three million dollars for their
terminals and right-of-way in New Westminster. It has
long been known that the Lulu Island branch was to be
completed this summer and now the news is confirmed
that the company is shortly to begin actual construction
work in this city.-*,
That such must be the case was already self-evident
from the letting of the contract for the Steveston line, as
it is obvious that that branch is useless to the company
until it has been linked up with the north end of the
Fraser river bridge, an action which can only be completed by the building of the main line along New Westminster's waterfront. Further details of the railway's
plans have not yet been published, but it is reasonably
certain that the site of the Royal City mills will be occupied by freight sheds and perhaps by railway wharves
and also that the railway will traverse this city over a
double track.
In a country accustomed as this is to forecasting developments it is not difficult to understand what these
works mean to New Westminster. They not only mean
the temporary expenditure of large sums of money.
among all classes of citizens and consequent expansion |
and prosperity but a lasting business in the handling of
goods for transport in and out of the country, the maintenance of considerable staffs of men in the city and the
provision of facilities for shipping by rail and keel that
will be of the greatest value to industries and wholesale
houses. - '
For the first time in her life New Westminster will
'be one of the most important terminals on one of the
great transcontinental railways. What that position has
meant to Vancouver in the past, we all know, and it will
mean the same to New Westminster in the future. Indeed it will mean more, for the Fraser river lends itself
more readly to more general development than does
Burrard Inlet and the building up of Coquitlam on the
C. P. R. and Port Mann also, on the C. N. R., will insure
that this river, with New Westminster at its head, will
be the greatest manufacturing and port centre on the
west coast of Canada.

Father of Typewriter.
The first commercially practicable
typewriting machine was, In large
part, the Invention of Charles L.
Sholes, who was born 94 years ago today, Feb. 14, 1819. Milwaukee was
the scene of the labors of Sholes and
his assistants, Carlos Glidden and S.
W. Soule, who, in 1866, were engaged
in perfecting a machine for serially
numbering the pageB of blank books.
Glidden, ln the same shop, was engaged on another Invention. He was
greatly Interested in the numbering
contrivance, and suggested to Sholes,
"Why Is it not possible to contrive n
machine that will write letters and
words Instead of merely figures?"
This suggestion was the germ of the
idea resulted in the- Sholes type
writer. Earlier inventors had made
writing machines, but they were nothing more than Ingenious toys. Sholes,
Glidden and Soule worked along entirely different lines anil their first
machine, completed in 1367, was sufficiently successful to prove the worth
of their theories.
It wrote moderately well and with
moderate rapidity. When it came to
marketing the device, Soule and Glidden dropped out and Sholes formed a
partnership with James Densmore, a
printer of Meadville. l'a. Later the
Remingtons, gun makers of Ilion. N.
Y., were interested, and the practical
commercial typewriter had arrived.

Lord Selkirk's first band of Red
River Colonists did net reach York
Factory, on Hudson Bay, till late in
September, 1811. Accordingly Miles
Maodonell, the young United Empire
Loyalist leader of the expedition,
whose position was a troublous one
encamped for the winter a few miles
from the Hudson's Day post.
Quickly a group of comfortable Ion
huts was erected which was known as
the "Nelson Encampment," but Borne
of the colonists were dissatisfied and,
on Feb. 14, 181", Macdonall wrote to
Cook (governor of York Factory) of
a serious mutiny. Fourteen of the
company "to a man" had set their officers at defiance, after having burnt
one of the huts "In a most audacious
Happily the mutineers were
strong enough to carry out their
threats, and the next day Macdonell
sent three of them "under the denomination of prisoners" with a party "to
drag provisions for themselves from
the factory." During the long winter
the colonists suffered to some extent,
despite all precautions, from scurvy.

The better to effect this result he
handed the bishop over to Asterius, a
deputy -sheriff and pagan from Pag-
anvllle, with instructions to make a
heathen of Valentine or show cause
why net. Asterius Jumped at the
chance and went at Valentine hammer
and tongs. Religious zeal wasn't all
one way in those days. What the
outcome would have been cannot be
stated here, because one day Valentine saw Asterius' daughter, who wae
straightway exercised the evil spirits
in her and caused her to see as well
as anybody.
Asterius waa very fond of his daughter, and he was so pleased with Valentine for what he had done that he
threw' up his Job as a Valentine reformer and asked Valentihe to reform
him. This was easier than curing the
blind, and It wasn't any time until Asterius and all his house were lined up
on the side of Valentine and telling the
pagans to go chase themselves. But
they did not. Instead, they chased
Valentine and ran him in for a long
term of imprisonment, which was
closed by their taking him out on the
Flamlnlan Way one morning in Feb.
207 A. D., and cutting his head off.

Who Was Saint Valentine?���Mr.
Lampton  Explains All.
St. Valentine, the ChriBtlan martyr,
whose memory will be honored today
throughout America and Europe, lived
In tho latter part of tho second and
the early part of the third century.
The anniversary of 1i!b death on Feb.
14, 207, has been observed ever since,
but It Is doubtful how and when Valentine became the patron saint of love
and   lovers.
The celebration of a festival for
lovers In February Is of pagan origin
and much older than Christianity

Mr. W. .1. Lampton, the poet, hat
contributed to the world's knowledge
a biographical sketch of St. Valentine,
from which thc following passages
are- chosen:
"When Marcus Aurcllus Claudius
Gotliicus, who was not only a, GothlcUB

A new route offered to human commerce transforms the politics of the
world. The Suez Canal opened the
legendary East to Europe, directed the
stream of European emigration towards Australia, and favored the formation, in South Africa, of an Anglo-
Saxon Confederation. The Panama
Canal is deBtined to produce profound perturbations In the equilibrium of the nations of the New
World. Humboldt announced those
changes in 1804: "The products of
China will be brought more than 6,-
000 miles nearer Europe and the
United States; great change wlll take
place in the political condition of
Eastern Asia, because this tongue of
earth (Panama) haB for centuries
been the rampart of, the independence
of China and Japan."
The Atlantic ls today the ocean of
the civilized world. The opening of
the canal will thus displace the political axis of the world. The Pacific, an
ocean separated from the civilizing
currents of Europe, will receive directly from the Old World the wealth
and products of Its labor and its emigrants.
Until the present time the United
States and Japan have shared in its
rule aa a mare Clausum, and they arc
disputing the supremacy In Asia and
Western America. Once the isthmus
la pierced, new commercial poplel
wlll invade with their victorious Industries the enchanted lands of Asia
and the distant republics of South
America. New York will be nearer to
Calloa, but the distance between Hamburg anil Havre and the Peruvian
coast will Le equally diminished.
It has been calculated that by thc
new route the voyage between Liverpool and the great ports of the Pacific will be reduced by 'J.C00 to 6,000
miles, according to the respective positions of the latter, and the distance
between New York and the same centres of commercial activity will be
diminished by 1,000 to 8,400 milcB.
German, French and English navigation companies will run a senvice of
modern vessels direct to the great
ports of Chill and China. The paths
of the worldB' trade will be changed;
Panama will form the gate of clviliza-
| Hon to Eastern Asia and Western
| America, as Suez ls to Central Asia,
| Eastern Africa, and Oceania. The
i Atlantic will become the ocean ot thc
'Old World.
The trade of the new era will undergo    unexpected      transformations.
;The Influence of Europe ln China nnd
| Western  America  will   be considera-
! bly Increased.    Germany will become
Ithe rival of the United States In the
j commercial   aupremacy   In   the    East
and in the republics of Latin America.
Her vessels,   messengers of imperialism,   which   now    make   long   voyages through the Straits   of Magellan
i to  reach   Valparaiso and  Callao.  will
then employ the canal   route.      The
.vessels of Japan wlll bear to Europe,
us formerly did the Phoenician navigators,   the   products    of   the    exotic
Orient;  New  York will dethrone Antwerp,  Hamburg   and   Liverpool;   the
English  will  lose  their  historic  poai-
tlou   as   intermediaries   between    Europe and  Asia.    The   United   States,
masters of Ihe canal,   will  create  In
New York a great  fair in which the
merchandise  of   East  and   West   will
be accumulated; Hi" treasures of Asia,
the gold of Europe, and the products
of their own overgrown Industries.

Joseph Valliere, a French adventurer,
Ilia beirs, who are scattered throughout the United States, believe that at
bat thej have found the last link
needed to prove their claims to a tract

���one at the banks of the White river,
on which part of the city of New Or-
taama stands.
id Is valued at between $8,-

This record sets forth that he wad

Valliere and Catherine Casse. The
godfather was Joseph Casse and the
Sodnother Elizabeth Roy. By mean..
of this record the subsequent adventures of Villlere were traced, and his
Ihrm-K descendants found.
It was in 1762, when France for the
time being relinquished her claim to
the west bank of the Mississippi, intruding the site on which New Orleans
mow stands, to the King of Spain.
that Cai-on de Carondelet. the new
governor, found Joseph Valliere with
a. band of retainers lording it over a
strip of the forest.
In 1T63 Carondelet, having an eye
to baldness, took Valliere into the
service cf Spain, made him a don

aoMiera, and granted him the estate
already mentioned. Archives of that
period which have been unearthed in
the search, show that Don Valliere
beld his possessions and died in 1794
without issue or making a will.
Spain Recognized Claims.
Hollowing his death, members of
his family established their right to
the -grant through the records filed in
Mew Orleans, and squatters who had
settled on the tract were evicted by
the then government. When Spain returned Ijouisiana to France the archives of the Spanish administration
���were removed to Havana, where, before the breaking out of the Spanish-
American war, those relating to the
Valliere grant were copied for the

Victoria, Feb. 13.���It is very probable that the Thomas F. Bayard will
be purchased by the government to
replace the old Sandheads lightship,
the matter now depending on the report of the inspector of hulls as to
her condition. She was hauled out
on the ways today for examination
by him,, and if he finds that she is
sound and fit for the strain, no ''oitbt
the purchase will go through.
Already sbe has been declared
otherwise well fitted for the work.
In the one regard of riding the waves
she is a belter boat than the old one,
owing to her broader beam and shallower draught The fog alarm engines will be Installed below, If she
should be selected, instead of in a
bouse on deck, and tbis will add to ber
The dismantling of the old Sandheads lightship, once a revenue cutter
and later tx sealing schooner ln the
Pacific, is already under way at the
marine department dock. The vessel
is yet stanch, despite its 56 years of
active service, but it ls no longer suitable for the use to which it has been
put for the last eight years, and it has
been decided to replace it by one
which will not require constant attention.
Launched in English waters as the
Mermaid, the schooner was commissioned in the revenue service in the
late '50s and saw much service on the
coasts of the old land. She is remembered in that work by Capt. James D.
Curtis, R.N.. the well-known naval
veteran of the Crimean war, who resides in Victoria. In that service she
remained until about 1890, and after
being laid up for a year or so she was
purchased by Capt. W. H. Whiteley of
this city for use aB a sealing Bchooner.
Captain Whiteley brought the Mermaid out from the old country in record time. He left St. Katherinea dock,
London with her in the fall of 1891,
and arrived in Victoria in March. 1892,
116 days out, having come around the
Horn. The little craft behaved beau-
tifu../ and sailed like a witch.
Collided With Whale.
While sealing in the Mermaid, Captain Whiteley had many experiences,
hut  the most exciting of these,  and
the   most   unusual,   was   the  now   fa-
, mous collision of the schooner with a
[ whale off the coast of Japan.    This
happened on April 11, 189'!, when the
j vesrel  was  cruising about  200  miles
' off the coast.
It was blowing a gale at the time,
and the schooner was running along
under reefed sails. The man on watch
gave notice of a whale asleep on the
Fiirfacc ahead, and Captain Whiteley,
being called, saw it not 50 feet to
windward.   He gave the order to keep
the vessel off, and as she fell off the
whale, now aroused, kept crossing her
In less than a minute he struck the
schooner and she struck him with an
awful crash. The stem was knocked
completely from the planking and fell
hard over Just like a rudder. The dying whale hit the vessel a tremendous blow with its tail, and this
smashed the bulwarks on one side
and did much other damage.
The pumps were at once sounded,
but to the surprise of everyone there
was no water coming in.
In November, 1905, the schooner,
having been purchased by the federal
government, was placed on the sand
heads as a lightship, replacing the
screw pile lighthouse that had stood
there for many years.

When the United States Nations'
Lawn Tennis Association meets to
day in New York, It ls probable thai
a challenge will be Issued that will result ln another competition for thr
Oavls International Challenge Cup
now the property of England.
It Is expected that the delegate)
will vote unanimously in favor of chal
lengtng, and preparations are ata-ead:
being made to send a crack team tr
England. All challenges must be In
before the first of next month, In
order to be accepted. The Australians, who lost the trophy Which aym
bolizes the world's tennis championship to the English team last November, will strive to regain the cup.
New Zealand will also challenge
and France and Germany have entered the lists. If the Englishmen should
succeed In retaining the cup against
rich stiff competition, tbey will have
demonstrated their right to be con
sidered the greatest racquet wlelders
ln the history of the game.

Young Davis, then a Harvard student

Ottawa, Feb. 13.���The question of
the high cost of apples to the people
of the West and the poor prices paid
to the producer was the subject of
further inquiry by the committee on
agriculture today.
S. B. Chute (Berwick, N. 8.), president of the United Fruit Companies
of Nova Scotia, gave evidence.
He contended that the apple shippers of Nova Scotia were suffering
under most unjust rates on the railways and were unable to secure clean
bills of lading so that they could make
no claims of shortage. They were
also badly treated In the way of rolling stock. The trade in Montreal, he
said, bad been particularly Injured..
Mr. Chute thought that acid phosphate should not be dutiable. It was
used largely by the orchardlsts and
was part of their raw material. To
retain the duty was a direct tax on
Mr. Chute explained at length the
system of co-operation In vogue ln
the Annapolis Valley. He pointed out
that It cuts out all unnecessary expenditure and gives both producer and
consumer full value. Local companies are formed consisting ot 40 to
SO members, all of whom bring ln the
total of their product to be packed.
The central office of the co-operative
associatlop makes all sales. All
triples are packed ln packing houses,
there being two and sometimes three
grades. He thought no third grade
should be exported.
The association sent a man to England this year and got fine results
There was a market in England for
No. 3 grade apples, he said, but they
were not branded by the association.
"The actual cost of raising a barrel
of apples is $1, said Mr. Chute, in answer to a question.
"Therefore selling No. 3 grade at
80 cents Is a direct loss to the farmer.
It ls an argument in favor of spraying.."
He thought Nova Scotia farmert
were getting a fair price for their
apples, but in comparison with what
the farmers received the consumer?
were paying an enormous price. "We
sometimes wish we had a share of the
larger price." he added.
He thought the Western Canada
market war, the best; thought the
British market was also good. The
freight on (he apples from Nova
Scotia to Winnipeg was $1.24 a barrel as against 90 cents to England.
To Edmonton the rate was $2.04.
Thus thc association laid Its apples
���iown in Winnipeg for $3.24. The
West was demanding its fruit ln
boxes but in England barrels were
more popular.
In 1912 there was practically nc
comp-rtltlon in Winnipeg except from
Ontario apples, but this year there
was severe competition from American fruit sold at 70 cents a box, f.o.b
"hipping point Mr. Chute aald only
about 3 per cent, of Nova Scotia
apples went west, while 80 per cent,
went to Great Britain. Two years ago
200,000 barrels went to Germany and
lt waB a most satisfactory trade.
Apples were sent from Nova Scotia
over to South Africa. But In the end
vie thought the Western Canada mar
ket would be the greatest market of
tbe future.
Mr. Chute said ordinarily apple
pickers were paid $1.50 a day. Barrels cost 26 to 28 cents each. Thii
figure surprised Ontario members,
who Instanced that ln their province
barrels cost 45 cents each.
Asked concerning tbe price of fruit
lands in tbe Annapolis valley, Mr
Chute said good raw land waa wortl
$20 to $50 an acre. But the land wa:
not good for anything but fruit grow
"My land was so poor that the*
wld It would not even raise a disturb
*nce," he said, "but Its worth $100'
in acre for apple'growing."
The Importance of cutting out th'
shipping of No. 3 grade apples wa
"mphaslred by a few members ot thi
house. Mr. Chute agreed. The oplnioi
was expressed that shipments o:
poor apples were really ruining tht*
market for the Canadian product
A Marriage of Convenience" at the
Opera House on Monday night, was
born of English parentage In Bilbao.
He first appeared on the professional stage in 1883 as Hon. Claude
Lorrlmer in "Uncle Dick's Darling,"
at Toole's Theatre in London, and in
many parts played by Mr. Waller
nlii.ee then, he has won for himself a
reputation of being one of the very
finest romantic actors of his generation.
lt was .- curious bit of fortune for
Mr. Waller's flrat appearance to have
as one of his auditors, his late majesty! the Prince of Wales), who from
that first night became one of Mr.
Waller's ardent admirer's, and lt followed that Mr. Waller had more royal
commands from King Edward VII.
than any actor past or present.
Mr. Waller appeared ln many parts
previous to bis engagement with Sir
John Hare at the Garrick Theatre,
London. Here he appeared in "Profligate La Tosca" and "Nixie." Even
aB a Juvenile actor, Mr. Waller became
a great favorite, and the parts that
followed would take a column of
space to enumerate.
Monsieur Beaucalrs, was one of his
late great successes, and in this
piece he appeared at his own theatre
in London for many months. It is
probable, however, of all the parts he
has ever played, Comte de Candale In
"A Marriage of Convenience" ts the

of fair wages to workmen and the
'purchase of supplies ln British Columbia.
The company ls not to sell, alienate, lease or dispose of any of the
lines to be aided, or any part of them
without the consent of the government is obtained. This provision,
however, is not to limit the right of
the company to secure any bonds or
Indebtedness on the lines by mortgage
or trust deed under power of sale,
foreclosure or right of possession.

Last evening the Jack Golden Musical Comedy Company changed Its
bill and presented the delightful play,
"f.'alla," to three good-sized audiences,
who enjoyed it Immensely.
This farce-comedy possesses much
of the mystic Turkish atmosphere
and the plot ls constructed around the
slave "Calla," late of the harem ot the
sultan. The title role is capably han
died by Mrs. Jack Golden, who takes
advantage of this type to make the
most of her natural charm and beauty.
The principal comedy role i* well
handled by Jack Golden, who was
greatly appreciated by the whole s.u-
dience, especially on account of his
original comedy antics and witticisms.
The other members of the company
were well cast In their respective
parts and worked together to make up
the story and unity of thought
The chorus was especially popular
in the new numbers with the many
changes of costume which were noticeable In the play ofHhe first of the
week. The girls are all attractive
and give evidence of having put ln
some bard work in being able to ren
der the numbers in such harmony and
with so much youthful vivacity.
It Is not to be forgotten that to
light is when the Golden Girls will
put on the first contest In this city

Romance  of  the   Fountain   Pen.
How many people realize what a

that they were made entirely of silver
early In the eighteenth century? That

an unknown cause gutted the upper
floors of the Seattle Times building
and spread to the A. W. Denny block
adjoining to tho north. The loss is
variously estimated at between $300,-
000 and $500,000. There were uo casualties.
Everything on the top floor of tho
Times building, which was occupied
by tho editorial and reportlal departments and the engraving plant was
destroyed. What chanced to escape

linotype machines ou the third floor
were badly damaged, and, it Is feared,

thought lt started either ln the small
courtyard that divides the Times from
the Denny building or in the Times
building close to the wall.
Stereotyper'e   Account.
Charles Prince, a stereotyper, who
was at work in the basement, said
the fire started on the top floor. He
said he was warned of the fire by the
nightwatchman. who came down ln
the elevator, and that he had barely
time to escape, leaving a pair of
new shoes behind him.
The flames when discovered about
3.45 were shooting out of the top stor
ey of the Times building and soon the
whole top of both structures was one
Immense torch, and the flames were
visible from many parts of the city.
When the firemen arrived the fight
looked like a forlorn hope, but thoy
were able to confine the flames to the
upper storeys.
The Times building about fifteen
years ago, is valued, says Joseph Ble-
then, vice-president of the Times Prln
ting company, at $150,000. The Denny
building Improved four years ago with
an additional storey, is worth prob
i:bly $250,000, and Mr. Bietlien estimates the value of the Times plant
at half a million dollars.

years of ago directly attributable to
bovine tuberculosis, but that in a
great percentage of the cases among
adults the tuberculosis bacilli from

thus had not been attributed In the

navigation bill which will expose anj
foreign airship travelling over Eng

under certain specified conditions, al
though the state ot war may not exist between this country and that
whence the airship has flown.
No secret ls made of the fact that

been reports of mysterious flightB ol

a day an which lovo missives are exchanged between friend:-) and between

unwritten law that tho person so addressed should present tho speaker
with a present.
Later the challenge Urcime more

Sic Walter Scott ln his description
of thc Wooing of the Fair Maid of
Perth, nnd of his Hal of tho Wynde,
gives a description of the English custom of choosing partners on St. Valentine's Day.
The old saying "She wears her
heart on her sleeve" comes from the
European custom of drawing one's
valentine. After the drawing is over
each girl wears the love message ehe
has received pinned to a red heart on
her sleeve. As the man whose name
wa3 drawn was well known to the
company it seemed like a sort of parade of one's lover before the public,
in ne.ii at preeent when a girl shows a
decided fendnees for a man she le
:,aid "to wear hi_r heart on her sleeve."
Twenty-five or thirty yeara ago the
comic valentine was at Its heighL but
it has steadily declined and at present few of these are sent out.
The lace paper valentine with its
Cupids and sentimental verses ls still
popular, and hundreds of people are
engaged in manufacturing these are-
tlcles. Then years ago the satin valentine with celluloid trimmings was
In vogue. These were really very
pretty with their satin puffing and
fancy cut celluloid trimmings. There
was usually a hand-painted scene ln

The picture post-card craze Is responsible for a number of pretty valentine cards. One of the novelties is

card there ls a large red heart held

on the other that of a man.
Underneath each are the words:
"Your linage Is Indelibly stamped upon my heart." If a lady receives this
card she Is supposed to return the one
which bears the face of tbo man to
the sender as an evidence that their
love Is mutual.
The valentine of the present day
sometimes consists of candy put up

Thinks   Scurvy   May   Have   Attached  Gallant  Explorers.
London, Feb. 13.���Dr. Nansen suggests that Captain Scott and his party
were attacked by scurvy.    He says:
"I believe Scott's calculations were
correct and had he only adverse
weather to contend with he would
have been back with all his men safe
and sound, but the treacherous enemy
which defeated them was surely
scurvy, cf which he hod no suspicion
and therefore could not take It into
his calculations.
"When It was stated that Petty Officer Evans was ill. thlB cannot have
been anything but scurvy and for several days they had to take him with

Telling School Children.
In plain and simple language the
story of how Captain Boott and his
companions. met their death will be
related by school teachers to 750,000
children ot the Lsondon county council
schools to morrow.
This happy suggestion came tram
the London Evening Newa and tt ft.
meeting of the education committee
of the London county council yesterday, when the letter from the editor
containing tbe suggestion waa read, It
met unanimous approval and the odea
also was sanctioned. Arrangements
are also being made for the reading
pf an article at the schools In tbe
large provincial centres.
Sven Hedln, the famous traveler
and author has sent the following flno
epitaph on Captain Boott to the
Geographical Survey:
'As brilliant as the Aurora Auetra-
lls, the immortal glory rises around
the name of the greatest Antarctic explorer of .all times. He hss reached
his goal. . He has served bis science.
He has sacrificed his life. He has

Bishop Farthing Has Contempt for
Some   People's    Lent.
That he had the most supreme contempt for the fashionable way of
��� keeping Lent, was in part the statement of the Ixird Bishop of Montreal
In his- Ash Wednesday address ln
Christ Church Cathedral yesterday.
The speaker told of how, In a house
at which he had been staying, the
most expensive fish was on the table,
and that this was called fasting. Fasting waa good, said the Lord Bishop,
If only to teach the lesson of self control, but it was not essential to the
service of God.
Addressing the downtown business
men at the first of tbe Lenten series
of mid-day services, Bishop Farthing
dealt with two realities, which men
must all face, God and sin, a clean
conception of God was necessary for
all wbo were to face him, and the
conception that was formed would affect tlie whole relationship between
God and man.
The mid-day services will be held
each day, except Saturday and Sunday, at Browne's Building, St. James

Science has done many wonderful things in recent
years, but In no line has such progress been made
as in the prevention, treatment and cure of dlseaae.
ln olden days a sick or crippled person was often
tortured to drive out the evil spirit supposed to have
crept Into the body. Today the most effective way
is to help nature Itself, which Is always trying to
keep the health perfect.
One of the latest and most wonderful inventions
In curative science Is "Try-New-Life," a marvelous
little machine which ls applied direct to the tissues,
and stimulates or

ia well named "Try-New-Life," for It infuses new

that any one can run It, even the patient himself.
First of all lt restores the natural circulation; the
skin Is made to glow, the pores are opened and resume their natural functions, the veins, arteries and
all tho marvelous network of capillaries are flushed

from the system. In this way the cause of many
