Population Doubles in Two
Years and Industries Increase Largely.
Figures Now Placed at 20,000 Conservative Estimate According to
Henderson's Directory.
New Westminster has a population
of over 20,000; an Increase of more
than 100 per cent. Bince 1911. ThiB
announcement Is made on the authority of the officials of Henderson's
directory, a cauvaBB for names for the
1913 number of which was recently
completed. The figures are computed
on the usual multiple system of two
and seven-eighths for every name on
- ln keeping with the advance ln
population the preliminary check on
the figures which has'Just been made
will Bhow a remarkable Increase of
new busine-is establishments ln the
city and over twice the number of
Industries with double the number of
men employed than in the previous
annual census taken. This is Indeed
a gratifying showing as It demonstrates that while the population is
leaping ahead a commensurate number of new Industries have been started to assimilate the new people settling In tho town.
The exact figures for population, Industries and business establishments
will not be known until the naineB and
data procured are rechecked, a work
which Is progressing now. In connec
tlon with tbe figures It Ib announced
that the population of Kraser Mills
has not been taken ln, though a small
portion of Kast Burnaby is Included.
In regard to the Inclusion of some
Kast llurnaby residents It Is affirmed
by the officials that all the people
recorded iictually outside the limits
balances with the number of people
working ln Ihe city whose homes are
on the outside.
"The directory will show that the
city haB a population of more than
20,000," assured a representative of
the directory publishers yesterday
who lidded that two yeurs aco tbe
population was placed at 10,000 and
left at that figure lasl year by nils
The work of getting the names In
order for publication Is udvanoln-r
rapidly and it Ib expected that the
1913 directory will he out about the
end of May, New Westminster was
the first place on the lower mainland
to be reckoned up, the figures for Victoria being tabulated about two weeks
�� go.
Probable Candidates for  Port  Moody
Elections���Mr. P. D. Roe Probably First Mayor.
The Port Moody city elections are
largely a subject of academic discussion, at present the only well authenticated report being that Mr. J.
H McNeice has no intention of opposing Mr. P. D. Roe for the mayor
ship. Mr. J. H, McNeice Btated that
fact to a News reporter, but declined
to commit himself further as to standing for the aldermanlc rank.
The general deply from the gentlemen who are freely discussed as probable candidates for civic honors are
of the "wait and see" order. Nomination day is Saturday, March 29 and
polling day on April 8.
Probable Candidates.
Names of probable candidates freely circulated are Alexander Latta, M.
R. Ottley. J. H. Maclean, K. W, Mc
Niece, Robert Abernethy, John Murray, Dr. Cartwrlght, W. Carr, J. Cote,
J. H. Thomas, W. I). Mackay and W.
It. Johnston.
Mr. Abernethy has frequently and
vehemently denied that he will become a candidate but hiB friends and
1 they are all Port Moody, incist that
they wlll have him out despite hlr
' protestations.
Mr. John Murray and Mr. John Cote
are  both  old  timers  of  Port  Moody
and  the other gentlemen  nre eonalb
I interested   in   Port   Moody's   welfare
! and   thoroughly  convinced, of  Its  Im-
i portance,  and  while  not   boasting ol
I the hoary antiquity of SO years yield
Ito none in enthusiasm for the material prosperity of the old port
The First Mayor.
One matter, however, that there ap-
: pears to be no question about is that
Mr. P. r>. Roe will be the first mayor
| of the city of Port Moody.
Mr. Roe, closely Identified with Port
I Moody's Interests for the last 17
! years, knowing from Its Bituation that
: the city la bound to be more than a
I point on the map, deprecates mod
'strongly any artificial "boosting" and
! looks with disgust and scorn upon
jthc dodges resorted to by the un-
i scrupulous to present Port Moody us
the hub of the universe
Those seeking conerTslons from the
civic board of P-srt Moody will be
! treated with courtesy, but honesty,
'and tliere will be no flamboyant ad-

Ottawa, March 24.���A general state
of uneasiness as to what is likely to
happen in the parliamentary world
when business is resumed by the
house of commons on Tuesday is in-
Jicated by the shower of manifestos
which descended upon the people
uiuce the houae rose lor the holiday.
On Wednesday last, subsequent to
tbe adjournment, Premier Borden au-
.horized an olficial statement reviewing the Bituation in regard to the
naval bill as viewed from the government Standpoint and intimating that
jlcsure would be introduced if the',
nicasuro was not passed on.
On Friday Sir Wilfrid Laurier authorized a statement In reply, ln 1
which hc contended that the oppoai*
tlon was fully Justified In the course
It had taken aud intimating the only I
way a deadlock such as the present
can be broken Is "by brute force or
an appeal to the people."
ThlB afternoon Premier Borden authorized the Issuance of manifesto No.
I in which the position of the Conservative parly and its determination to
pas3 the bill Ib reaffirmed.
In non-partisan circles the rain of;
manifestos is taken to Indicate some :
doubt in the minds of politicians as
to what really is going to happen this
week. It Is probable that no definite
I decision will be arrived at until to-
j morrow ai to whether the government win continue to press the naval
bill at ence or ask for supply.
Should the latter course be adopted.
! the opposition will have to decide ut
I ouce whether supply for a couple of
. months will be granted or refused.
' The situation is one which will lend
I itr.elf to negotiation and compromise
on both sides, but what la really like-
I ly to happen no one ls In a position
j at the moment to say.
Fight  Not Over,
lt Is certain, however, that the fight
over the naval bill is not over   and a
closure  rule  will  be  introduced  and
j debated.    There is n general dlsposi-
I tion  to  ihlnk that for the present at
I any rate there will be no more con-
i tinuoiui sittings, but that whatever is
��� accomplished will be done within the
customary hours.    That will give the
I committees,   Including  tlle  committee
on  banking und commerce which    is
! considering  the  bank act,  un  opportunity   to proceed   with  the  examlna-
1 tlon of itB witnesses.
On Tuesday It ls likely that there
I will be debate un the rules of thc
! liouse arising out of the action of
I the speaker In assuming the chair n
i week ago Saturday night when the
1 scenes of disorder occurred.
The second Conservative manifesto
Issued today Is us follows:
No  Brute  Force.
"It cannot  be too strongly  nupha-
j sized  that the  clause which  Sir Wll-
' frid  Laurier and  his  followers  have
I been cbJ.rueling during the paat two
'weeks In the first clause of the resolution which S'.r Wilfrid Laurier proposed by way of uii amendment   on
] Deoember 12, last.    Kvery member of
I the  opposition,   Including  Sir  Wilfrid
I Laurier himself, votidl'ur lhal clause
j on February   Ll last, us part of   his
, amendment
"There    bus    been    no display Ol
brute   force  in   the  debate  except on
the purl of those who first voted for
i this clause unit  then  obstructed tta
; passage,
"Tlie clause In question which thus
forms purl of Sir Wilfrid's resolution
, proposed on Dsoember 12 last, is ua
1 "'Prom nnd out of the consolidated
, revenue fund of Cutiudu there may bo
paid und applied, a sum not exceeding |;l5,tll)0,(lilil for the purpose of Im-
mediately Increasing the eUective
naval forces of the empire.'
"If Sir Wilfrid desires to recede
frum this declaration net forth In hiB
resolution then at most the question
between the parties Is whether this
sum shall be devoted to the provision
Of three battleships for immediate
and eftectllVS aid to llle naval forces
of the empire, or whether It shall be
employed In establishing a Canadlun
naval service. If Ihe contracts are
let with the utmost despatch for the
construction of three battleships they
will not be ready to be placed In
commission before tlie next general
eleotlon,    In  case  It  should then    be
the will of the Canadian people to
recall lh ne ahlps und make them
part of a proposed Canadian naval
servlco, It Will be perfectly feasible to
follow thnt OOtirse, There seems
therefore, no ground for Opposition
and cirlnltily none for obstruction.
Unworthy Threats.
"It    i absurd   that   there  bus  been
any attempt to gag dlscusslou Inasmuch aa the clause In queftlon has
been most continuously under debuto
from December 12 and has not yet
been passed. Kvery possible facility
for debate has been afforded to tho
opposition nnd they huvo taken full
advantage nf It. Not only have they
done this, bul Ihey have accompanied
tho discussion with unworthy threats

Mr. D. E. MacKenzie May Be Appointed���Coming Importance of City aa
Grain Pert.
In keeping with New Westminster's
Important station as a grain distributing and receiving centre, the gavern-
ment has decided to appoint a grain
weigher here and Mr. D. E. MacKenzie, market clerk, has been recommended locally for the position. The
appointment, It ls understood, will be
given Mr. MacKeuzie providing the
city authorities are willing that he
Bhould Bhoulder the work, In addition
to his present dutleB.
As regards grain shipping New
Westminster's position at the present
time ls very unsatisfactory and it U
in order to Improve conditions that
the creation of the post of grain
weigher has been decided upon. Heretofore it has been customary for a
grain shipper stationed at an up-coun-
try point to weigh all grain consigned
to this city, but consignees have often
found that their grain haa been considerably reduced In measure on arrival here on account of leaks in cars

presldenl of the new organization before older and wiser heads v.ire called In for mediation.
The    strike    took    place    about    3
o'clock yesterday afternoon and was
caused by the up town hoys making 11
live kick against an alleged monopoly
which they claimed vas held by certain boys who were designated to the
area iu the vicinity of the II. C. B. It.
The up town hoys afier b dug on

TUESDAY   MORNING,   MARCH   25,  1913.
Pending tho taking of a census under the direction of
the city council the population of the city had been placed
at or about 17,000 to 18,000. It is therefore welcome news
to know that this estimate was of a conservative nature
and that, according to the compilers of the directory, the
population of New Westminster at the present time is
twentv thousand certainly and may prove to be more.
This statement indicates that the population has
doubled itself within the short space of two years and it
will be found when the lists of industries and commercial
development are forthcoming that a corresponding advance has also been registered therein.
This growth in people, we would point out, is not only
a sign of the progress of the Royal City but should be
specially borne in mind at this time, for it is of the very
greatest importance that every man in that population.
who is qualified should register himself upon the new voters' list that is now being compiled and which will be
closed on April 7 next.
It is no good growing if, when Westminster has to
give her opinion upon matters or has to fight for her
rights, she is handicapped by the fact that the voices of
many of her sons are silent upon public questions simply
because thev did not set out definitely to register their
names in time.
The pronouncement of Dr. Magill, chairman of the
Grain Commission, upon the possible competitors that the
Pacific coast communities will have to face in securing a
share of the prairie trade in grain and in supplies taken
back there, emphasizes the need for concerted action upon
the p-art of the self same communities.
We note that a Vancouver contemporary appeals to
that city to wake up, to do less talking regarding the effect of the Panama canal upon it as a commercial centre
and to get down to business. We in New Westminst or are
in the hapny position of knowing that our citizens and public bodies have for long had coenisance of the need for development, and Ihat all that is possihle to be done for
Westminster by Westminster is being done.
But the warnintr conveyed by Dr. Magill was no*
meant for any one citv. The various communities upon
the const must look farther than competition among
themselves for the location of one or more Dominion government elevators.
There annear to be several possible spouts to the
Avheat bin of the prairies, and while its contents will continue to ("-ow larger with the increase of acreage brought
under cultivation, it is essential that when we have such
competitors as those noticed by the chairman of the grain
commissioners there should be all the coast cities standing together to get that spout properly fixed.

Paris, March 24.���Auteuil presented
a most brilliant appearance on the occasion to the opening of tht Paris racing season. Mannequins were conspicuous by their absence, as the fashionable dressmakers have apparently
agreed not to send any for tho present in pursuance of their new policy
ot strict secrecy until late In the season.
But the public In general were nevertheless afforded an opportunity of
viewing what will be worn this spring
hy smart women. Never before at
such an assembly had colors bo startling been seen nor bucIi bewildering
contrasts, two, three aud even four
different shadcB being worn at the
same time.
Flaring Colors.
These flaring colors appear to have
absolutely superseded the Bober blue
serge so popular during the last few
years. There was not a single ci_s-
luine of the latter color to be teen today.
Another feature which will undoubtedly   form a keynote   of  the   spring
i fashions is the exceedingly   elaborate
skirt, both in cloth uud  in silk, fully
draped from lhe back anil   narrowing
I to almott hobble skirt dimensions in
< the hem.    An Ingenious   and   picturesque arrangement of the drapery of
I the skirt, which is out up In front al-
j most to the knee  iii  tlie shape   of a
reversed  V, assures  perfect  freedom
of movement.
Low shoes, mostly of bronze color,
i hut in some cases matching the dress
! and almost Invariably with red Mo-
; rocco heels, are worn with the new
."itirts. As to coats, they are usually
of the fame color as the skirt, but
ilways a brilliant hue.
In thape they are so gnerally short
and cut away. Some of the more popular Shades seen today are grata green.

Skagway, March 23.���The first authentic information concerning the
gold strike ia reported by the Indian.
Skockum Jim, in the Silver Creek
district, in Northern British Columbia, was received yesterday In a message from Atlin, saying that ,7. I.
Owens had reached there with several
hundred dollars' worth of washed gold
he had taken from the new diggings.
Owens suvs prospects are excellent
and the trail Is easy, but he will not
tell the name of the creek on which
he found his gold. Owens came out
of Atlin for supplies, and will return
to the Teslin country  In a few  days.

A Startling   Model.
One of the most   startling   models
was that of a coat   of   extraordinary
colored cloth, cut away In front, over
1 a skirt of large check cinnamon taf-
Ifetta; the skirt revealed very low vel-
; vet  slippers   and   embroidered    silk
stockings.     The   costume    waB   com-
* pleti d by a collar of brilliant   yellow-
fox fur.
Another dress which attracted much
attention was of bright orange velvet
trimmed with skunk, and with a muff
to match. Small bats, generally very
���simply trimmed with either tiny Mowers of bright hues or with a single
quill or lancer plume, appear to the
most favored.

Czechs and Germans
Have Serio-Comic Feud
Berlin, March 25.���Ferocious criticism Is being levelled against harmless Prince Wilhelm of Hohenzollern.
Patriotic associations declare he is a
wicked man, and that he Is quite unfit
to be a kinsman of Kaiser Wilheim.

nut, alas, some years ago a vicious
design was hatched for turning this

The chief villain was a certain "Forest Councillor" named Koenlg, with
a pure German name but a Czech
mother and conscience. This influential gentleman set about Importing
Czechs from Austria to fill till Important positions on the estate.
He scraped the honest Hohenzollern (white and black) paint from
the estate boundary posts, and re*
painted the posts red and white, the
shameless colors of Bohemia. He tran-
lated the notices,, warnings and signboards into Incompri hensible Czech.
Scene  of   Race   Feuds.
And this went on. School children
were taught that the Bohemian forest
estates are Czech, and that the ultra-
supir-Te.utonlc llohenzollerns are Bohemians by origin, and Germans only bv mistake. What with the colonists from Bohemia, the repainted signboards, and the corrupted school children, the estates rapidly grew more

the various dishes we; are supposed
to swallow, lf not digest, during dinner, arid on the other the list of toasts
which, after dinner, we are called
upon to "honor" in the usual fashion.
These, a Glasgow writer Bets forth,
begin with the usual "loyal and patriotic" toasts, now generally restricted
to "The King" and "The Navy, Army
and Reserve Forces"���which ls proposed by the chair and replied to by
some gallant warrior, who, with
much greater trepidation than he ever
evidenced in the presence of the enemy blurts out a few disjointed sentences, and then, with the hardly nec-
cessary assurance that "he is no
speaker," heavily resumes his scat.
These are succeeded by such standard
dishes as
"May the hand of charity wipe the
tear from the eye of sorrow."
"May the companions of our youth

that although the company sat down

The dinners referred to above were

It was even carried to Buch a
length that It was considered "hnd

luence of this extraordinary custom
wus that a stranger or a very shy
person might find himself In the
awkward position of having its much
difficulty In getting enough to drink
during dinner as he hud to avoid taking too much after the cloth was removed.
For the tousling did not stop, lt
was only then that the serious business of tlio evening began. What
were known us "rounds" of toasts
were glveu when ouch gentleman

of what inuy be calliil "standard"
toasts, specimens of which nre given

"Hlytho mny wc a' be."
"May we a' be canty and cosy."
"Malr sense and malr siller."
Some 8entlmental Toasts.
There wus, however, a deeper depth
still, for when toasts were exhausted
the company fell back upon "sentiments." Those wero "short epigrammatic sentences, expressive of moral

Stockholm, March 24.���The hunt
for the modern Venus has spread to
Sweden. A Stockholm newspaper Ib
being deluged with applications from
hundreds of ambitiouB Swedish girls
who believe they are Becond, if not
flrat, editions of the Venus de Milo.
Of course, nothing would have been
heard of these beautiful Swedes had
not the craze for the specimen of perfect girlhood been started from Brook
All the stories and pictures of daz-
zlingly handsome American beauties
were scanned here with intense interest, and suddenly it occurred to
one of tho most gallant of ^'ockholm's
editors to ask himself ar . readers:
"Why should Sweden wSlt for the
United States to find a Venus de Americano? Are not the Swedish girls
the most beautiful in Europe?" And
so he haB started a competition to discover the most perfect rival to Venus
de Milo that Sweden can produce.
The favorite candidate at present for
this Swedish crown of honor is Mdlle.
EUna Olestedt, the popular actress anil
one of Stockholm's most beautiful wo
men. After careful Inquiry, it has
been certified that her measurements
cloBCly approach the ideal Venus
from Milo.    They are bb follows:
Height, 5 feet 4 inches; circumference of head, 21 3-8 inches; breast,
under the arms, 33 18 inches; breast,
over bosom, 37 1-8 inches; waist, 23 3-4
inches; hips, 37 1-2 Inches; upper leg,
23 3-4 Inches; calf, 13 indies; ankle,

can borrow from dead men's bones."
His article ln tbe Baznr goes on to
] say: "Manners nre of more Importance
than laws, are strouger than laws. In-
I deed, It has been well said thnt upon
I good manners In a groat measure the
I laws depend. Tbe law can touch us
j here and there, now and then, but
1 manners are what vei or soothe, ifif-
nipt or purify, exalt or debnse, bar-
I barize or refine, by a constant, steady,
; uniform, Insensible operntion like that
of the air we breathe. How often hns
it been said that good manners are
made up of petty sncrifireB;
"American comllllous are conducive
to the developmeut of the best manners, because ln America recognition
depends not upon birth, nor upon
wealth, hut upon the force of one's
character. America ls the country of
democracy, lu which people do not imr
row merit from tbe dead; In which,
so to speak, every one la his own
chsracter and every one bis own heir,
and devises bis own future and Inherits
his own past, ln America s grand
father is not a social Institution; men
do uot live lu the past."

Nature as a Model for the Advertiser, by Bert M. Moses,

by  a  parachute,  exploded  yesterday
Nature was the first advertiser.
Her advertisements assumed various forms, and every
form was honest.
Nature could never be enmeshed by the pure food and
drugs law for false and misleading advertisements.
She always tells what is.
Pain is nature's way of advertising that something is
wrong with the physical side of man.
Bad odour is her way of telling of decay.
Thunder is the advance announcement of a storm.
The cackle of a hen is a top-of-column advertisement
that there'6 an egg in the nest, and the crow of the rooster
is a bold statement that the advertiser has faith in his
prowess and challenges combat.
The peacock advertises his wardrobe by a full-page
spread of his tail, and the bark of a dog is advance notice
to keep at a distance.
Hunger is the stomach's advertisement of "food wanted," and drowsiness is the advertisement of the brain for
The falling leaves advertise the approach of autumn,
and the violets modestly foretell the coming of spring.
Any advertiser of merchandise who is a close observer of nature realizes that the only thing worth while telling is truth.
Tell what is, and tell it in a way that must be seen or
Tell it in the proper place and at the right time.
Tell it over and over, so that in time your advertisements will come to be recognized as being as true as nature's advertisements.
A man can be honest and truthful without boasting
about it.
Simply be honest, and that fact will be established
mere quickly than if you continually boast about it. "���*"   paois eiqht
