Eighth Street Reserve.
Mr. I.. M. Richardson gave a verbal
report as to the respective poHitions
of the city and the provincial government lu tile matter of the Eighth
street   rem rve.
The reserve was really the government burying ground.
The cemetery in Sapperton was
originally taken up by the Free Ma-
ions, Oddfellows, and Roman Catholic
bodies and the city subsequently pur
chased four and a half acrce.
There was no other place  to  bury
paupers except in that reservation Oh Iobmpetltlona held every day
Eighth  street.	
The city was trying to get the gov
ernment to give them a right to build
stables nnd board of works buildings
and he thought the government would
accede  to  this   request.
Difficult   Question.
It   was   a   difficult   question.     The i
Chinese were allowed to fence a plot I
there and they have cleared tt at their
own expense.    Thc Japanese were al '
lowed  to  bury  their  dead  along  the
front of Eighth street, just at the edge
of  the road
Mr.  0.   Wilkie  suggested  the  erec-'
tion  of  a  high  boundary  wall  round
the burial  ground     lt  was  a perfect

The  suggestion   met  with   the  con
slderation of the committee which was
aaked to report at a later meeting.
Bad Roads In Surrey.
The secretary, Mr. Kenneth Myers,
directed attention to a report made
to him 00 the bad condition of the
Townline road in Surrey. He had
heen Informed that there were SO fain
at the show
whether Madero  was killed
or was  executed.
The Bhoutlng of Madero took plac.
between Villauama and Itastamcuui.
As the rebel leader in the Laredo
district, (luronlino Villareal, is a par-
ilsan of Trevlno, tbe government expects that the trouble in that vicinity
soon  will  bo adjusted.

his bro:her Itaoul, began a counter
revolution at Sun Pedro, In the statu

expectation of uniting tlie rebel.;

affected with all speed, we would here say much (hanks.
With an equal sum voted by the Dominion government for the extension of the post office the present year
will see two greatly needed public buildings added to her
outward appearance. This is, to say the least, encouraging. It means work for Westminster people and consequent benefit to all, and besides that means that the work
undertaken both by the land office and by the post office
will be more efficiently performed to the satisfaction of
the citizens and to the credit of New Westminster. And

Hints  for Students.
In  laying  down   the   principles   by
which he  proposed to be guided,   the
I lecturer said  that  the first   principle
lor all was that in studying any work
if genius they Bhould begin by taking
it   absolutely;   that     is  to  aay,   with
and sev    minds intent on discovering just what
were pub ] .ho author's mind  intended.      in  In-
listing  upon  this  he   used   no  disrespect    towards    those    learned    men
whose labors would help them to en- j
joy the great work afterwards in other
waya and from other reapecta.
At the same time it, might fairly be I
irg"d that euch helps to studying un I
'.uthor were secondary and subsidiary.
Again, Ihey ahould he watchful not to

scholarly, since it was from the

Many young boxers of championship
calibre have been ruined by being
forced at too rupid,.a gait, and Eddie
llanlon was a notable example of thla
ort of had management   it w*as 10
years ago today that llanlon fought
20 rounds lo a draw with Young Corbett, then the featherweight champion of the world, In San Francisco
The t'allfornlan was a mere schoolboy, Hi years of age. when ho met the
leader of the featherweight division, a
fighter of long experience, who had
won premier honors by whipping the
'Terrible Terry" McOnvern. Tbat a
mere lad, a novice at the game, could
bold his own ln a grillln
battle with such a fighter as Young
Corbett  was  considered,  and  rightly,
a remarkable allowing,
Had some good man taken bold of
I [anion nt that time he would almost
i 'crtaluly    have  become  the   world's
I Ightwelght  champion.    Ile    Was    re-
.'arded as a wonder, and the man to
heat   Joe   Cans,   who   then   wore   the
lightweight   crown   upon    his     kinky
'ean.     llanlon   was   durable   n3   the
Dane, clever as Cans, game, and  the
possessor of a powerful punch. He had
a   defence   that   was   all   hut   Impregnable,     ln   the   ring   hc   assumed   a
crouching  position, and  the beet   boxers could hanlly gel In a lick without

Although the king rarely exercises
his prerogative to bestow a title upon
In woman, Mrs. Scott Is not the first
and i thus honored. The most celebrated instance of a woman receiving u title,
was In 1601, when Sir Ralph Aber-
crumble died from wounds after (he
battle of Alexandria. A few months
inter, his widow was created a Har-
oness of the United Kingdom ln her
own right. The widows of some officers killed In the Crimean War and
the widows of one or two officers who
lost their lives In the Boer War, received knights' widows' rank.
There are two peeresses In their
own right who received their titles on
the death of their husbands In consideration of the laitor's eminent publlc service Viscountess flambb'den,
widow of the lit Hon. W. II. Smith,
loader of the House of Commons, nml
Haroness Macdonald of Barnacllffe,
widow of sir John �����. Macdonald,

thee titles were conferred in 1891,
Numerous Instances are also found
of the bestowal of titles on the wives
of eminent men who remained commoners. The chief cases are those of
the wlfo of the elder Pitt, Haroness

design automobiles of various sizes and colors, including three
types of touring cars and two roadsters. It is especially interesting to note that the McLaughlin principles of construction, which
have proved so successful under the most rigorous Canadian road
conditions, are retained; and while, of course, substantial improvements have been effected, no radical experimental ideas
have been adopted.
