their views before a representative
ExCounclllor T. D. Coldleutt was
the flrat speaker and during the
twenty minutes allowed by the chairman, went over the work done by him
while on tbe councils of 1910 and 1911.
and compared this with what had been
done'during the past twelve month*.
Mr. George ii. Leaf, the second
speaker, stated he had no past political record, but thought that as he had
lived In the ward for so long he
��� should know a little about municipal
i matters.
Councillor Madill, who is speaking
on the defensive, gave an outline   ol
I what had been  done during 1912 in

Alderman Only yesterday, just before
starting out on hi* series of meetings.
"There la practically no debt in the
bank and everything that has been
effected during tho past year is cover
ed by the necessary funds. The money
from the sale ot the bonds will be
here iu a day or so, and thus everything will be cleared up to date, and
matters will be left ln first class condition, as tar as present arrangements
are concerned, for the new council to
proceed with.

"The receipts from all  the money
earning   departments   of   the   city,'
went   on Alderman   Gray,   "show   a
splendid increase for the year that is
past, and while our expenditure   has J
been heavy it has beeu caused by the
-phenomenal demand for extensions to j

Is justified by the great Increase   hi

of giving Alderman Gray an opportunity of staling the manner ln which
he would conduct the administration
of the affairs of the city during 1913,

New Westminster as one of the most
sensational and amusing gatherings
ever held during a municipal campaign here.
With every member of the present
council with the exception of Aldermen White nnd Curtis on hand to reply to the charges and insinuations
made by a number of the "would-bes,"
Mr. Peter Peebles, Mr. Bryson and
Mr. Kennedy, were on hand to reiterate their previous statements, while
Mr. ltalph Wilson and Mr. Archie
Uogg apeared to outline their platforms. The opportunity created at
the gathering tor excitement of Borne

Mayor Lee in his usual briliant style

"This win mean a great thing for the

The public service commission so declared today after a careful investigation.
William H. Schroeder, thu* charged,
was indicted tor manslaughter lu
Steuben county, but not brought to
trial. Tbe indictment was dismissed
upon motion of the district attorney.
"Tho primary cause of the wreck,"
says the commission's report, "was the
failure of Engineer Schroeder to observe the signals. The train into
which he ran was protected by a full
stop signal, 25 feet east of the rear of
the train, by a flagman 2550 feet east
and by a caution signal nearly 4500
feet east. AU these three, signals
were disregarded."
The investigation developed that
the engineer had disregarded the duty
of. taking proper rest before attempt-
drinking the evening before the acci-
Ittg to run the train, and acknowledged
"The action of the Engineer should
be considered as much an offence
against the Brotherhood of Engineers
of which he is a member, as against
the railway and the public."

The Actress' Franchise League,
which 1* organizing the movement, has
called for tho help of all similar
���ocletles in making a peaceful demonstration ln support of tbe adaption of
an amendment to the bill Intended to
give the suffrage to the women.
The militant section ot the suffragettes Is said to be preparing to provide a more exciting time for the
members of parliament.
At present the suffragist* have.' a

support because ot the methods adopted by the militants. A large number
of the Liberals who are In favor, of
suffrage for women will not vote for

fluith't opposition to tbe movement,
and also because of tbe way he had
been treated by the militants.

for this purpose were Bold.
As Mayor Lee arose to speak he
the I was greeted with' an enthusiastic
round of ftpplaufle. He preceded his
remarks with tho statement that it
had not been his Intention to appear
at any of the meetings except the annual, tot In view of the fact that be
had been brought Into the campaign
and charged with being a brainless
person, be thought It hla duty to appear.
"The- conclusion I have reached,
lude.ins* by the statements of several
men who have appeared on public
platforms to give yon an opportunity
ot considering their candidature, is,
that 1 should be In the asylum. These
men say I have handled the affairs
of the city in an exceedingly questionable manner and that I have squandered the public money. I wtah to emphatically affirm that It Is not true.

the speaker declared that It would
prove a source of considerable revenue to tlie city; and he inquired of
Mr, Bryson if he had voted for the
Arena plebiscite. This information
he requested because some person bad.
told htm, that Mr. Bryson had said that
there, was hot enough brains In the

this question and requested Alderman

If a man Is mayor or alderman of this
city he should continue In office until
the work which he or tbey have Initiated is completed. If this were tbe
case a progressive councl lwould be
in office tn perpetuity. A captain of
a ship who brings bis vessel to a safe
harbor and who retires from the command does not desert the ship, as
there Ib always some person connected with the vessel who can continue
the journey tu a safe manner. The
prosperity and welfare of New Westminster does not depend upon myself

city were locked up with any one man
I would pack my valise and leave the

which the ratepayers have authorized,
I would like to stat, "observed the
mayor, "that it is very true, as Mr.
Kennedy says that the first sod has
not been turned, and if I have anything to say or if I may suggest to
the 1913 council, the first sod on any
of these great Works will not be turned

the city.   He has tried on several occasions  now  and  has  always  failed

The mayor referred briefly to the
system of roadmaklng as laid out the
first of last year. Alderman Kelllng-
ton with great care and ability and
with the assistance of his very able
officials, has carried out this work
to a very satisfactory and efficient
completion. While everything has not
been done no effort was spared to
have tbe roads In good condition before the fall rains. "A number of
streets upon which contracts are let
for paving, the work is not advanced
as far as we had hoped to have It,"
stated the speaker. "There are various reasons for this. The condition
of the money market, the climatic
conditions and other matters over
which the council had no control all
contributed to this condition. But you
must remember that every street
must be mode worse before it con be
made better,"
Referring to the charge made by
Mr. Peebles that the City was losing
money by not having a cement tester
which would prevent the dumping ot
bad cement on the city of New Westminster, the mayor stated that the
council had .gone very carefully into
the question of having tbls machine
installed, but after careful Investigation and personal observation of the
working of tho method in a few other
cities, they came to the conclusion
that it was hot only a very expensive
proposition, but one entirely beyond
the requirements of a city of the size
of New Westminster. Besides tbl*
the city doe* not purchase any cement as practically all the cement
work Is done by contract and lt Is
put up fo the contractor to put In
good cement or the work will b* condemned and replaced at the' expense
ot the eon tractor and not the city
and not one dollar, has been lost to
the city during the past year by reason ot poor cement being supplied.
The mayor touched briefly on the
water question and the Coqultlam
dam and showed conclusively that he
was today on the same platform as In
1309 and assured his hesrf*r�� that
everything possible is being done by
the olty council and the B. C. E. ft.
to protect the city's water supply to
the last degree.
"lam here tonight to support the
candidature ef any man, who ln my
Judgment Is honest In bis endeavor
to work- for the Interests of the city,"
said the mayor, "and 1 have no heul-
tatlon In supporting every member ol
last year's council wbo is seeking reelection " and "will regret- very much
tbat Alderman Curtis has not allowed
his name-to-be presented to the ratepayer* for,-their endoraation as he
bas shown himself to be a very careful and efficient chairman of the water oommlttee, and l can say without
any fear of successful contradiction
that he Is the beat chairman ot the

TO CORRKSPONDVNTS���No Jotters will bo published in The, News ttoepi ovir
the writer's signature. The editor reserves thc right to refuse thc publication of any
doing ro because of a lack of knowledge ot which are the most hardy
sorts and the treatment that should
be given them. To supply this information in readily available form, the
Dominion Horticulturist, Mr. W, T.
Macoun, bas prepared a pamnhlot of
a dor.en pages entitled "Hardy Rose
Culture in Canada." lt is designated
Pamphlet No. S cf tlie Experimental
'���"arm and may bo had free hy ttnply-
'ng to t<ie Publications Branch, Oepart
i.icnt of Agriculture. Ottawa.
This pamphlet div'des the rosea usually cultivated in Canada into four
!*ro;i|;s according to the degree ot.nar-
.'ilno'is possessed by each. The liar
dip.st '-roup includes Rosa ru^osn and
hybrids, Austrian briars, Provence or
Cabbage rises, Damask roses nnd
Miss ros"ii; next come Hybrid Per
netuals, climbing roses nnd dwarf Po
Vyaulha roses; then Hybrid Tea roses,
and last of all Tea roses. It is stated
'hat roses of the first group may be
grOwn In some parts of Canada with
little or no protection.
The pamphlet treats In n very practical manner the culture of reiRes under the. following heads: Bite and
soil, I lants and planting, cultivation
and watering, manuring, pruning, winter protection, insects and fungus rn-
"mles and how to treat them. Then
follow lists of the best varieties of
thn various classes with a brief des-
cript'on ot each as regardi form, color
and fraerance. In the preparation of
this treatise the conditions in all parts
of Canada were kept in view so that
prr-src"1. Ive /rose growers in every
prcVnce may receive valuable Information from Its pages.
We do not intend to discuss at this juncture the report
of the Royal Municipal Commission, but it is to be noted
therein that two year terms for members of the council,
half of whom should retire alternately, are recommended.
Now, our present system has this much in its favor, namely, that each year, and year by year, if a man "makes good"
lie come back to the electorate and that electorate signifies its appreciation of his services by telling him to go
ahead for another twelvemonth���or, it dismisses him.
Thus the record of the present chairman of the finance committee is a far better criterion of his worth to
the community than had the two year term been in vogue,
for in each of the last six elections Alderman Gray has
been returned to a seat on the council. During five of
those six years he has ruled the destinies of the light department and, during the past twelvemonths, he has been
-entrusted with the arduous task of chairmanship of the j ceifrids
fiannce committee. We say arduous advisedly for the rapid growth of the city, the unprecedented amount of work
undertaken and carried to a successful conclusion, the
complicated state of the world's money markets, have combined to make the task the reverse of easy.
That he has proved his ability upon the council is unquestioned, and we feel sure that Alderman Gray will
"make good" in the new position to which he now aspires.,..       -     ,  ������,.,����� �� P.m.���,v

The present is a most critical time in the history of the
city and, recognizing this, we have laid and will continue
to lay stress upon the absolute necessity of a continuity
of the progressive policies initiated under Mayor Lee's
regime. We have taken the right road and, by the return
of Alderman Gray for our next mayor, we feel sure that
the citizens will have done much that is in their power to

Commission Reports on
Municipal Government
Victoria, Jan. 10.���The report of the t civic executive work, subject to thc
Royal Municipal Commission, com- council right, by a two-thirds majority
prised of    Messrs. W. H. Keary    -��� '' '������-   ""-" " '������- ' h '"" '" "'���
W. H. Keary. of
New Westminster, chairman; H. A.
MacLean. K. C, of Victoria; and A. .B.
Ball, of Vancouver, waa yesterday returned to Hla Honor the Lieutenant-
Governor, after cabinet consideration,
and foreshadows legislation recasting
the Municipal Act at the approaching
session of the House, and also measures to create a provincial board of
censorship over moving picture films
and theatrical posters, as well aa to
create a provincial board ot censorship
create a new ministerial department
ot the government such as tne Prime
Minister Intimated at New Year's
might shortly be brought Into being,
for the supervision of municipalities
generally in the direction ot uniformity tn administration and Increased
The commission's report Is an admirably condensed resume of conclusions and recommendations, the outstanding features ot which' may be
briefly referred to as follows:
Boards of Control.
Speaking generally, the present form
of municipal government In force ln
British  Columbia Is  found   to have, .reasonable action ln all such  cases
worked well and given satisfaction, a
system ot municipal law having beer
developed through annual reshaping ot
the municipal act to meet Ihe necessities of changing provincial conditions, which while perhaps lacking in
symmetry, possesses the virtue of
adaptation to.tli*. actual **��"."i**fl��enU
of the country and Us peoplo.
For' this reason radical ohange,
which might easily be found non-beneficial in practice, is not recommended.
It Is Held tbat It would be a mistake
to adopt in British Columbia the commission form ot government, but (it
It should be deemed advisable tn any
municipality to relieve the council
wholly or ln part of IU executive functions) the formation ot boards 6f control Is advised, following precedents
in other provinces of the Dominion.
The recommendation tn thla connection ts based largely upon the success Ih practice ot tbe Winnipeg system, and the commission advises legislation permitting cities of 16,000 population or over, by bylaw to prescribe
that their respective councils may constat of a mayor or reeve, the ububI
number ot aldermen or councillors,
and from two to four controllers annually, and the aldermen and controllers for two-year terms, half of the
body retiring annually.
Such elected controllers are to give
thetr time exclusively to the service Of
the corporations electing them, and to
be adequately remunerated; the
boards of control, cduatttttted by the
mayors or reeves or the controllers,
are to be vested with full appointment and dismissal power over mu-
nucipal empsoyeee, .ew.-id.ns t^tt*"*
ment heads, and full authority over
to reject, vary or refer back Its bust
nets decisions.
The suggestion originating with the
union of British Columbia municipalities for a division ot city municipalities Into classes determined by population, Is rejected as both unnecessary, chimerical and Impracticable,
while with respect to major cities
(Vancouver being cited as tbe leading
example), lt Is held to be best that
special charters be granted and no endeavor made to bring such cities under the provisions of any general act.
Local Improvements,
In the matter of local Improvements, the. commission recommends
that newspaper advertisement ot such
undertakings be no longer required,
mailed notices to Interested property
owners being proposed Instead.
In order to provide an effective
check upon public service corporations 'and prevent tbe abuse ot public rlfihts by such, under powers secured through undue latitude ln their
respective special charters, the appointment Is advised of a commmls-
slon with ample powers to   enforce
ent exemption of churches and church Laidlaw (fpokane)' Miss Josephine

payer, thereby securing the ballot
The taxation for school purposes,
lt Is recommended, shall be fixed (for
ordinary purposes) at seven mills tn
the dollar, while school trustees will
be required to possess the same property qualifications as aldermen.
Tax Sale Titles.
A recommendation is made that tax
sale titles shall hereafter constitute
absolute title to the buyer, and amendment to the act le recommended by
which mayors of smaller cities may be
voted fair indemnity, as are those of
the larger centres ot population.
Where small municipalities are obliged to Incur expense In the pursuit
and bringing to trial of non-resident
criminals for offences wtthln their
borders, It Is advised that the government assume a share of such expense.
notwithstanding the powers granted
thc corporations Interested under their
private acts, such a tribunal being
elthor permanent or from time to
time appointed by the government, to
deal with specific cases as they arise.
Power would also be possessed by
such a .commission to compel public serlve corporations to give adequate service to the public and at
reasonable cost.
Public Utilities.
Legislation la further recommended
under which municipalities may take
power to establish and operate such
public utilities aa telephone systems,
motor, bus lines, etc, within their
resepectlve boundaries, with the object of safeguarding municipal financing.
The creation Is proposed ot a municipal department under which would
be ono or more inspectors whose duty
lt would be to see that all municipality bocks are properly kept, Including
school accounts, that these are duly
audited at least once annually and that
uniform system it established in municipal accounting.
Government notion is advised which
will result In the sister province of
Ontario amending thetr laws bo as to
permit of B. C. municipal debentures
being available in future as securities
In the other provinces ln connection
with the Investment of trust funds.
The power possessed by municipalities in this province to invest ther
sinking fund in realty mortgagee (but
little exercised), it Is held should, in
the Interest ot safety, be abrogated,
while upon the weight of evidence
presented'during Its investigations,
the commission advises that tbe pros-
Mrs. H. V. Ardagh entertained a few
friends at the tea ho-ir on Thursday
afternoon In honor o her sister, Mra,

Lepers Walk Streets of American
Cities at Will, Says Specialist.
Tat nearly every big city of tho
United States and Canada has Its lepers, who walk the streets at will,
without tbe knowledge ot other ped-
esdrians who rub elbows with them,
Is the belief of many physicians who
have Investigated the subject. Dr. L.
Duncan Buckley, one ot the greatest
living authorities on skin diseases, declared, not long ago that there were
forty lepers In New York City alone,
but added that they were absolutely
harmless to their fellowmen.
Dr. Buckley, who has made a life
study ot leprosy and allied diseases,
was born ln New York sixty-eight
years ago tomorrow, Jan. 12, 1845.
After graduating at Yale and the College of Physicians and Surgeons, he
spent several years abroaCstudylng
dermatology under the greatest European specialists. He first came Into International prominence when, In
lf>09, he brought to New York John
Early, whose sad plight as an alleged
leper attracted world-wide sympathy
except from the people of communities who treated the unfortunate man
aa a human football, kicking him tram
place to place, and shrieking the old
cry,  "Unclean! "Unclean!"
The fear of lepers, say the specialists, la largely based on the Bible account cf the dlteane. which dnscrlhe

though their association with the poor I
wretches   necessitates   daily   contact
with the diseased flesh.   A( the leper |
hospital near Madras, India, from 100
to 200 patients are under the caru of
physicians and nurses, an 1 th!, Institution   has   afforded another striking
instance of the non-eontag:.'.usii--8a (:'

Dr. Buckley has had lepers under his
care almost constantly for over forty
year*. On one ocvaslon he exhibited
twelve lepers at a meeting of the Academy of Medicine. On another occasion he collected a dozen lepers for
a clinic and lecture ln San Francisco.
He has also toured the' world, visaing
most ot the countries where leprosy
Is most common and where lt assumes
its worst aspects.
"I freely touch a leper as I would
any other person'" declared the eminent specialist, "and afterwards take
no other precaution than washing my
hands. Mr flrat leprosy case waa ln
1813, wben I waa an Interne in a New
York hospital. Thla was one of the
worst cases ot leprosy I have ever

The first street car line in the world
was Inaugurated ln New York eighty-
two years ago today.
The rolling stock consisted at first
of one car, fashioned much like the
omnlbusea used In London and Paris
streets, but differed tn that it was run
on wooden rails. This pioneer traction line extended from Prince street
and (he Bowery to Yorkvllle and Harlem, which were tben suburban villages. This was the only street railway In the world until 1852, when
lines were built on Second, Third,
Sixth and Eighth avenues In New
York. Boston's first street railawy
was opened/ ln 1866, ana Philadelphia
Inaugurated a similar service in the
following y***r. The first street rall-
wa* ln England wis at Birkenhead ln
In 1868 a line was laid ln Liverpool,
and London's first tram datea from
1869. The flrat street railway In
France was trom SL Cloud to Paris,
built In 1856. Horses furnished the
motive power for all these pioneer
street railways.
New York, the first city to hav>
hone cars, is also about the last, as
several horse car lines are still lu
operation in Mahattan.

tbe tune of lii to 18.
Although the "V'b" were superior or

Hockey Players Ignored by Representatives of Company mi Meeting

The ears of the officials of the
Westminster Arena Company would
have tingled last evening had they
been within hearing of the amateur
hockey meeting held in the Board of
Trade rooms.
And  from  all accounts  the  Simon

Maybe the arena company can put a
different light on tbe situation, hut
there can be little excuse in allowing
such a meeting called as last evening's and ne'er a one, representing the
company, put In an appearance.   .
As mentioned above, the amateurs
are a little sore at the treatment, and
but for the older heads of the league
advocating a waiting policy, the league
would have been broken up last evening. Perhaps the company has some-
I thing up Its sleeve. Perhaps they do
not wish the league to ge started this
season. If they do let them come out

Men   of   Wolfe's   County   Contradict
Scotland's  Assertion    Concerning
His Ancestry.
London, Jan. 10���Mr. Borden is, of
course, the man of the moment. Apart
from the innumerable letters which
have appeared In the press from a
refSfment of supporters and dissentients, and the daily editorial battle of
Tory and Liberal newspapers, there
has'been an animated discussion concerning his ancestry.
Perhaps it was the generally accepted idea that Scotsmen made Canada which encouraged one writer to
claim Scotland aB the native country
of the Canadian premier's ancestors;
perhaps the writer onlv desired to exercise the faculty comrnoniy crealted
to Scotsmen of claiming everything
good when he described him aa a
"plain, strong mau of Scottish decent." Auyway, the men of Kent were
"No one," writes one man of Kent,
"grudges Scotland any honor which
she may legitimately claim, but men
of Kent and Kentish men would be
proud if it were proved that the most
forceful and far-seeing statesman ln
the King's Dominions was sprung
from the loyal county which also produced Wolfe, the founder of British
Evidently the men of Kent will
not rclinquih their ground without effort to Scotland. They have compiled an irresistible genealogical tree;
and "Osbertus de Borden" may easily
rank for firet place with "Henry of
the White Plume," the designation so
affectionately used by Sir Wilfrid Lauder's supporters tn the province of
Quebec during the last election.
No usual work of reference gives
the detail with which an ardent Kentish man communicates the family history of the Bordens. He traces his
lineage in the direct male line from
one "Henry Borden of Borden," who
lived and flourished in the fair county
of Kent when Richard 11. was King
In A. D. 1380.
"Osbetrus de Borden" presumably
Of the Eame family, was a benefactor
of Sheppey Monastery previous to
1234, when his name occurs in a charter of Henry HI. William Borden,
great-grandson of the above Henry,
held lands in Borden and lleadcorn,
Fifth in descent from this William was
Richard Borden, son of Matthew of
headcorn, who was born there in
1595, emigrated to New England in
1638 and died at Portsmouth, Rhode

next week according to Captain
Charles Eddie, as soon as Captain G.

on the Cheslakee, which would raise
the death list to seven. A woman and
child are thought to have boarded the
boat without a ticket, and so their
names are not known. Her brother is
believed to be working on one of the

Paris. Jan. 10. ���Tt Is announced that
the Minister of War has adopted a
new tyce of gun for horse artillery.
Since 1900 French exports have been
searching for a 75-mm. gun, light
enough to be thoroughly servlcable
with cavalry.
After many experiments ln the state
arsenals it was decided in 1911 to Invite the Bervlcos of private Industry,
ard two types of light guns from the
Creusot works were tested at the las'
manoeuvres ln tlie west. It Is one of
these which has now been adopted.
The new gun will weigh about half
a ton less than tho preBftnt 75-mm.
weapon. Orders have been placed for
80 guns of the new type, and they are
to be ready In time for the grand manoeuvres of 1913.

three lobes running lengthwise, one

The rnspenslon system la carried

cubic feet capacity.
Assuming that sbe Is on the lines of

Yesterday, with all manner of demonstrations peculiar to the race, and
a number copied from thetr Western
brethren, the Hindus of New Westminster and the entire province celebrated their Christmas.
ln all the mills in which the East
Indian is employed the festive spirit
was abroad and ln order to fittingly
celebrate tbe occasion a number of
the turbanned duskies laid off work,
and entrained for Vancouver, where a
gigantic celebration was held.
All the Hindus donned their best
clothes and most flashy turbans. Some
were dressed tn brilliant uniforms
which they brought from their home
land and paraded about amongst their
countrymen extending the greetings
of the season.
The Hindu Employees of the Small
and Bucklln Lumber Company gathered around the offices of that firm
and greeted the management with ex
plodlng fire crackers and the singing
of native ditties yesterday morning
Some bystanders who witnessed this
demonstration feared that a small
revolution had broken out among the
East Indians in protest to the action
of the management tn eliminating
their countrymen from the mills, but
Mr. E. II. Bucklln gave assurance that
this was not the case.
It is customary amoug the natives
in India to hold a two weeks celebration on an occasion such as this, but
the B.C. Hindus have become so imbued with the spirit of the whites and
fear of the loss of the almighty dol
lar that they are satisfying them
selves with one day's holiday.
