"Thi policy cf our company for the

G. J. Hunter, manager of tba Union

be found than in the change of headquarters from Quebec to Winnipeg
last June," he stated.
Mr. Hunter baa been a member of

Abcut  Five  Million  Rounds  Shipped
From New Orleans Since Lsst
New Orleans. Jan. 7���Approximately five million rounds of ammunition
have been shipped from New Orleans
tp Mexico since the neutrality proclamation waa issued by President Taft
last spring, according to testimony
given hero today before Senator Wm.
Alden Smith, chairman ot the senate
committee lnveetigatlng the Mexlcon
aituatlon. Several repreaentativea of
fire arma companies were before the
oommlttee today, and produced original orders, copies of invoices, namea
pf .purchasers and namea of consignees.
Senator Smith queationed tbe witnesses closely to ascertain whether
the money for these supplies waa furnished by American capitalists.
After the conclusion ot the testimony, wblch waa given behind clossd
doors, Senator 8mlth aald:
"We have struck a warm trail here
and the testimony taken does not tend
to support the declaration of neutrality by thla government. Aa a matter
ft faet/tt appears that the Madera
taction tn Mexico has been-permitted
to get unlimited' quantities of arma
end ammunition, while their, oppon,
enU have been forced to\ couaply with
the president's proclamation."

Linking up annacis island.
Further development in the working out of the harbor improvement scheme became evident at the last meeting of the council. The decision to call for tenders for
rock and for cedar piling to be used in the extension of
Front street marks another step towards the consummation of that project, while the suggestions advanced by
the Canbricol corporation have an important bearing upon
the larger harbor scheme.
The Canbricol corporation already own the bulk of the
area of Annacis Island. The people who compose that corporation are in the highest standing in London financial
���circles, and they are willing and anxious to assist in the
development of the harbor of New Westminster by the
financial backing of industries that are looking to locate
upon the Fraser River.
Herein is food for reflection, not only for ourselves,
but for the authorities at Ottawa, as showing the great necessity there is for the development of the only possible
large industrial area upon the lower mainland.
The suggestion that Annacis Island be taken into the
city limits is a good one, and one which will ultimately take
place. We do not hesitate to add that the time is undoubtedly coming when not only Annacis Island but Lulu
Island as well will be included in New Westminster.
The Canbricol corporation are asking that a bridge
be built across fro mLulu Island, via Patrick Island, to Annacis Island. At present Annacis Island still remains an
island; and, naturally, its development first hinges upon
���communication with the mainland.
The. Provincial Government last year set apart some j This is the time of running debts.
$7,500 for the building of a bridge between the islands, but ^A^f*^ me,
the expenditure of this money has been held in abeyance
pending; the completion of the harbor scheme.
Communication between the islands there must be;
but, while the bridge suggested by the company would be
necessary if there were no harbor scheme, we think that
it would be much better to hang on a little longer and to
devote the money towards the building of the causeway
Said little Dusty to the Duke: ���
I've heard you're wondrous wise,

most pronounced in the case of Italian rulers. Emperor William of Germany has alwr.ys refused to have his
photograph taken standing beside the
Empress, on account of the disparity
in height.
Queen Mary is appreciatively taller
thin King George., while Queen Victoria is several inches the physical
superior of Alfonso, and the Czarina
is much taller than the little Czar of
all the RusBias.
In times of stresB and teror, when
stricken Italy has been shaken by upheavals of the earth. Queen Elena
has shown herself a, real heroine
When Southern CalM-llf was last devastated by an earthquake, Elena donned the uniform of a nurse and work
ed as valiantly as any ln caring for
;ho injured. Elena and Vittorlo spent
four years of blissful honeymooning
before tlie latter was called upon to
assume the cares ot state.
They lived to and for themselves,
and they have continued this devoted
attachment to aueh an extent as to
dim 1'ie brilliancy of the Italian court.
The King and his spouse and children
nearly always dine together, en fara-
illc, and they give as few public functions aa possible.
This domestic felicity causes annoyance to the hangers on of the court
who hold that such devotion is In bad
taste when displayed by sovereign*
It has often been said that Vlttorlo'B
love for his queen Is so great as to
Involve a ludicrous jealousy, and that
the masculine memberB of the court
are not permitted to go near her ex-
cpt on  formal occasions.
The girlhood of Elena In Montenegro was spent amongst the simplest
ind primitive surroundings. At that
Ime Nicholas had not assumed the
title of King, and was merely the
prince of a little mountain country.
It was his custom to personally pass
on all disputes between his subjects,
and even to act as judge In criminal
eases boldins: court beneath n tree in
the courtyard of the royal "palace"
at Cettinje.
Drought up In such a democratic
and primitive atmosphere. Elena has
ne^rr learned to like serial functions,
and her prejudice against the pomp
of royalty Is fully shared by the King.
For Alderman

impossible for me to meet you all personally before the forthcoming municipal election I take this means of announcing my candidature for Alder
man and of soliciting your vote and
influence on my behalf. I have had
several! years' experience as City
Councillor and If elected I will do my
best to assist in carrying on a forward policy for the advancement of
our City, at the same time having due
regard for the finances, and seeing
that we get value for money expended.
Yours respectfully,

Was Favorite Resort of Ben Jonson
and   Shadwel'.
At thc present time it would be difficult to discover a London tavern
ever called by the name ot "The
Devil." But in the eighteenth century 1 Fleet street., still in existence,
was bo called.
"The Devil's Tavern" was so called owing to the proximity of St. Duns-
tan's Church and the fond recollection of an interlude between the saint
and the Evil One.
This was Ben .lonson's favorite resort, and here be presided over a club
of which he was the founder. He
wrote once:
"The first Bpeeeh in my 'Catiline'
spoken to Scylla's ghost. waB writ after I had parted with my friends at
the Devil Tavern; 1 had drank well
that night and had brave notions."

Ludies and Gentlemen, In response
to requests, I have decided to Bubnii*

at the elections next week of a Municipal Council for tho City of New
Westminster for 1913.
1 stand for sane, well balanced progress along all lines; for an earneBt
endeavor to ascertain just where we
are at, financially and otherwise; and
for securing the highest possible percentage of efficiency and value for
every dollar of expenditure.
I am perfectly aware that aims are
enc thing, and accomplishment an
ether, and with the becoming modesty
of a new man ln the municipal arena,
with something to learn from actual
expeience and contact with municipal
problems, refrain at th's stage from
making any sweeping declarations or
rash promises.
I believe that a thorough open mind
ed and fair public discussion and
ventilation cf municipal questions Is
���ost desirable at this season, the annual election, and shall be content tc
h%ve contributed to that end If my
offer to serve the ratepayers and citizens for one year ln the Council shall
be respectfully  declined at the polls.
I expect to participate tn the discussion at the public meeting In the

Canadian NaVal Reserve
Is Solution of Problem
Frederick William Wallace, of Montreal, writing ln Saturday Night, says:
"For Canada to maintain a navy
capable of defending our long coastlines, east and west, from even a
sixth-rate power, would demand a navy larger than the Dominion could sup
port at the present tlmo.
We will have' to depend upon Great
Britain for many years to come,
though eventually we will be powerful enough, perhaps, to maintain our
own navy. 'Perhaps' Is accenuated.
for though we may be rich enough
to support a navy, yet If Canada's present prosi^erlty continues sbe will never be able to man it with Canadians.
A navy manned by mercenaries Is
nothing to be proud of���as was shown
by recent mutinies ln the Brazilian
navy���they are unreliable and cannot
be trus.ud in time of war, and such
would be tbe case if Canada supported
a navy of her own.   Why?
Simply because the able-bodied Canadian of the eligible navy recruiting
class earns too good a wage ashore.
He has all the liberty he wants. Access to amusements aud pleasures
he would never get at sea. Barns
good money for unskilled labor, and
if he don't like his job Is free to quit
and take another. He can 'slang' his
boss If necessary, but if he did that
In the navy It would be the 'brig' for
him and bread and water or solitary
confinement below decks. If he quits
he Is haled before the naval authorities as a deserter and severely punished."
As to the processes of recruiting In
America, Mr. Wallace says:
"Naval recruiting haa to be done on
this side of the water by trickery.
No Canadian, unless he was desperate, would enter the navy If he knew
what he was up against. Sign him on
for six niontns with the option of leaving the service at the end of that time
If he liked.    He would leave gladly.
Take naval recruiting ln the United
States. It's a joke! And the native
born American knows It. Oaze on the
alluring placards displayed In the
streets or 'Life In the United State*
Navy'. Foreign ports, lovely native
women to make love to, all kinds of
fancy fruits to eat, plenty of liberty
to run around, and Uncle Sam will
clothe you, feed you, house you teach
you a trade, and show you the world,
and pay you as well! How nice!
How generous! The foolish recruit
dreams of the years of Idyllic existence he is ln tor, and after two month*
of the real thlug he wishes he had
been struck dead before he signed
away his liberty, and on the first op
portunlty he will desert. Few native
Americana sign for the navy, and
those who do are desperate���men who
are no good, socially, morally and
A  hard   winter,  hard    times    and
them Is easy compared with their previous existence."
Mr. Wallace is, however, Insistent
on the fact tbat ivo have ln Canada
many men of the best Bca-faring class,
and while he Is a supporter ot tbe
iiorden policy as tin. via media of all
policies, he offers a solution which
would utilize this class ln an emergency, and at the same time satisfy
those who pretend to be worried over
the loss of Our automony and over
a supposed devolution of the power
of our self-government.
It Is that of a Royal Canadian Nav
al Reserve. He points out that In
Great Britain tbey bave at the present time three bodies of trained naval men, viz., enlisted men; the Royal Naval Reserve, composed of time-
expired navy men, and men and officers of the British Merchant Marine
who put In so many weeks' drill yearly, and the Royal Naval Volunteer
Reserve, similar to our ordinary militia.
Canada, he believes, could form a
naval reserve of 60,000, composed of
seafarers on our coasts and sailors
on our Great Lakes. He holds that
while we are giving Britain ships, a
course which meets with his approval, we might as well be licking this
go'.d raw material Into Bhape for emergency uses. He shows the feasibility of his plan' by pointing out that
these men could be trained as a reserve during tbe off seasons when
there is little doing ln their particular vocations.
"FlstabltRh depots in various centrally-located ports,' says Mr. Wallace, "and for a certain period every
vear give these men rifle and naval
gun drill; signalling, snb-marlne mlnc-
laving, and cutter and boat work. Get
some of Great Britain's discarded
cruisers and smaller craft. Station
them at different points. Sav a

their anchorage, yet with their equipment they would be just the necessary naval colleges for the training

Tokio, Jan. 7.���As Is well known,
Japanese shipping men are keenly exercised over the mercantile problem
which the opening of the Panama
Canal must present and they have already taken steps to examine the possibilities and probabilities systematically and thoroughly.
The Nippon Yusen, Toyo Risen and
Osaka Shoe en Kaiaha recently sent
agents to the Canal Zone for the purpose of ascertaining sll the factors ln
the situation so far ss that la possible, but It would appear that the
elements of uncertainty loom so largely ln all the calculations that any
foreeaae of developments or any measure to meet It are hard to frame.
It' may be said, however, that the
opinion Is held In competent quarters at least, that the opening of the
canal Is by no means certain to effect
the far eastern trade materially, at
anv ���ite, for some time to come.
In the first place since th* voyage
to Europe via the canal will only be
a few days shorter than that by way
ot Sues, and ships taking that latter
route will not be at a disadvantage ln
having far fewer porta of call at
which they can piok up and discharge
cargo and passengers and take on
coal. It la not believed here that
there will be any diversion of traffic
from the Sties route so tar as vessels
hound to and from Europe are concerned. -   ���
If a vessel were to follow th* route
to Europe by way of Honolulu and
Panama, she could not expect any
cargo other than that billed through,
since the trad* between Japan and
the other countries touched an rout*
ts negligible, aad that between American port* (Including Honolulu) Is tor-
bidden to all save American vessels.
Moreover, the vessel* would have
to carryva considerable amount of
coal for steaming across th* Pacific,
and. If the stock were renewed at
Panama the price would probably be
considerably higher than that prevailing at the ports along th* other
routes, since fuel at Panama will have
to be carried thither from the United
Should oil be used as fuel, the case

Ex-manager of Cubs  Practically  Ad-
mite That He Has Come io an
Agreement With New York
Chipago, Jan. 7.���Frank Chance, in
all probability will sign tomorrow ai
manager of the New York Americans.
After a five bour conference this afternoon wftb Frank Farrell, owner of
the New York club. Chance admitted
tbat Farrell's arguments had been
strong enough to cause blm to waver
from his decision to retire from baseball for a year.
Chance's arrival was heralded today
by the announcement of his "final"
decision to devote the next year tr
bis orange ranch In California. Mr.
Farrell declared he would use every
effort to overcome this resolve. That
he was rncceseful, was proved by what
practically waa an admission bj
Chance that he had changed hla mind
While the terms offered Chance are
not revealed. It la rumored that hie
contract wilt call for a salary approaching $20,000 for a term ot years
and an Interest In the club. It la rather than disappoint the New York baseball followers that Mr. Farrell offered
inducements that Chance hardly could
refuse. This ia confirmed by Chance's
statement that Mr. Farrell's "argu
ments were convincing."
Chance expects to arrange speedily
the sale ot hla borne in Ravenwood
and to leave tor. California Saturday.

,,,    ,..,, .ill question  that   has   been heatedly
���S.lati?? ."^1 discussed in Paris by artisU and
antiquaries since the discovery of the
famous statue in 1820, is now s.t at
rest forever through the publication
recently hy Jean Alcard,,the academician and well known man ol letters,
uf some remarkable manuscripts in
his possession which have never before  been  published.
According to the evidence in these
documents, which is regarded as unimpeachable, the statue of Venus Vic-
trix, which is now Ute chief treasure
at the Louvre was intact when it was
discovered nearly a century ago by a
Greek peasant in an underground
grotto in his field.
Both arms were in place. The right
arm descended a little below the hips,
where it held up the draperies, while
the left arm was raised above the
head and grasped in the hand a small
sphere, whioh wa-, probably an apple.
This arm was detachable from the
body of the statue and fixed in place
hy a tongue of iron.
The reason thc statue was armless
when it was shipped from the island
of Miloe is now also made clear. The
documents published by Alcard prove
that French naval officers, who were
the first Europeans to see the Venus
and who were authorized by their
Government to buy it at any cost obtained tlie prize only at the cost of a
sharp scrimmage with the crew ol a
Turkish brig, the commander of which
had been instructed by a Greek prince
at Constantinople to bring the statue
to him.
In the struggle, in which fifty sailors
took part en each side, and in which
shots and saber cut were free'.y exchanged, tlie statue, which had been
placed on a stoutly built cart, was
thrown to the ground und its arm*
were broken in pieces.
This seizure ol the Venus de Mflo
hy force and conflict between th*
French and Turks was hushed up lor
diplomatic reasons, and never reached
the ears of the public.
Tlie first of the documents whicl
Aleard publishes and which he in
tends soon to deposit in the library ol
the Institution of France is a memoir
written by Dumont Durt-ille, afterward
noted m a Polar explorer, who obtain
ed the statue for the French Government.
He states positively fiat the Ver:u��
Victrix, when he first saw the statnt-
had its arms in Uie posit.on described
adding that they were afterward
mutilated and detached from the body

inal attitude of the Venus decided t>.
leave a record in writing, which
should settle the matter finally. It
st rtes:
"'When I saw the statue In the hut
of Yi-r-os Bottoms, on whose field it
was found the left arm was attached
to the bust and held an apple over
the head."

Frank Erne, Third Lightweight Champ
.   Born SS Years Ago Today.
Frank Erne, who was tho third
man to hold the lightweight cham
plonshlp of the world under Marquis
of QuceniBivry rules, was a native ot
Switzerland, and waa born at Zurich
thirty-eight years ago today, Jan. g.
1875. Brae'* father waa a wine grow
er, and that may account for Frank',
tremendous consumption of the Juice
ot the grape, whieh often seriously
lnterferred with his training.
Erne won the lightweight title ln
-i decision over . Kid Lavlgne In a
twenty-round boat at Buffalo, May 3,
1899. He held the title about three
years, Joe Oans beoomlng his successor. Erne began hla pugilistic career
at Buffalo, where he had gone as a
youth, and when aa a lad he was
employed at the Buffalo Athletic Club.
The boxing taurtniotor observed that
the Swiss youngster was a promising
fighter, and Brae proved it by earn-
'ng draws In contests with Oeorge
Siddons, famed as the "all-day fighter"
snd Solly Smith, * food California
boxer. -
Then he went to New York and took
on Oeorge _l*oa, getting a draw, although In a second bout he lost two
decisions to tha clever colored boy.
Beginning as a featherweight, Brae
.���joon grew lato a lightweight, and
cballengod KM Uvlgne.
The first Iavlgne-Erne battle re-
iijrted ln a draw, although the Swiss   ,
boxer mUHet eaafly have won exoept Siww I* Oenerati

Stale Bread.
It  is  generally  supposed  that
ftsleness of bread arises from its becoming actually drier by the fraJual
!os3 oi water, but this it not t'.e case,
remarks The Bakers' Weekly. Stale
bread' contains almost exactly the
same proportion of water aa new
oread after it hae become com; letely
The change is merely in the into-'
nal arrangement of the molecules ol
the breed. A proof of this is that il
we put a stale loaf into a closely-covered t'.n, expose it for half an hour ��*
an hoar to a heat not exceeding that
uf boiling water and then allow it to
cool it will be restored in appearance
and properties to tbe state of tbe new
bread. /
It is impossible to say with anything like certainty just how old the
custom ol quarantine is. We know
that it was observed at Venice as
early as the year 1127. whereby sll
merchants aad others coming tram the
Levant, were obliged to remain for
some forty days in a lasaretto before
they were admitted to the city. The
custom la now coextensive with 'tlie
civilised world, and to it is doubtless
to be attributed the rapid advance
t_st has been made within the past
Quarter of a century in safeguarding
the people from the plagues which in
the olden times were so destructive oi
human life.

Yacht   Qunhlld  for   Hydrographical
Victoria, Jan. 7.���Negotiations have
practically been consummated for the
trim little steamer Gunhild, which has
been laying ln James Bay for several
months, to the Dominion Government
for use In the hydrographical survey,
The owners, W. H. Price and L,
Camausa, are preparing to vacate the
vessel and turn her over to the government. The price Involved ln the
transaction was not given out.
The Gunhild Is to be outfitted by
the government and in the spring
will be sent north to Dixon Entrance
to conduct a survey of the waters
about there. She will also be used
to survey stretches of water which
are too shallow to permit the larger
hydrographical steamer Lillooet from
taking soundings.
The Gnnhlld will relieve the --* Lillooet of considerable work and thereby give the larger vessel an opportunity for carrying out large undertakings.
Before the Gunhild was purchased
by the Dominion Government she was
thoroughly tested as to both her hull
and her engines. J. Oglllvle, of the
hydrographical survey, was sent out
from Ottawa to look for a veBsel, and
he picked on the Gunhild.
She was hauled out on the ways and
her hull sounded, and it was proas     being      exceptionally

Western Washington has been reduced to slush by the rain and warm
wind now prevailing.
The temperature has risen on the
average ten degrees in Oregon and
Washington and in some places .twenty degrees. A southwesterly storm
that will bring great masses of vapor
from the sea is sweeping over Western Washington.
Thc railroads have already begun
to suffer from the thaw. The Milwaukee Columbian train, due here at
11 this morning, has been marked Indefinitely late. Northern Pacific
trains are three or four hours late.
The Great Northern has no hope of
opening Its mountain divisions until
late ln the week.,
The recent troubles have caused

Edmonton, Alta., Jan. 7.���Benjamin Lawton, chief game warden for
Alberta, has issued Instruction to
trappers and hunters that the closed
season for beaver, protected since
1908, has been extended from Dec. 31
1912, to Dec. 31, ,916.
He reports also that the beaver,
which had an Important part In the
romance of tl' early history of North
Amerlc. , has mutlplled rapidly during the 1ar<. four years, notwithstanding raids Ly law-breakers. The regular hunters and trapj.urB In the north
country, he adds, have not killed game
out of season, but have assisted in enforcing the laws.
There aro mnny who believe that
the beaver, the standard by which all
other fure were rated ln Western Canada until a few years ago, ts doomed
to extinction.
Evidences of its fast approaching
extermination are seen In the decaying stumps, the broken dams and the
deserted lodges along the upper waters of the Fraser and Peace rivers,
which may be considered the last
home of the patient animal, which for
more than two centuries contributed
largely to Canada's most substantial
advancement and stimulated enterprises and laid the foundation for
strong commercial development.       ���

Mysterious Happenings In  England���
Military Craft Tampered With���

London, Jan. 7.���Once again England is in the tbtoes of an airship
mystery, following the announcement
that at least three people saw and
heard what they took to be an airship
pass over Dover early Saturday morning. According to a policeman it
must have beer, some sort of an air
craft,  because he  says:
"I saw lt coming from over the sea,
heard the hum ot Its engine and aaw
it display a light."
On tills report, corroborated by a
tradesman and one other, army officials got busy. They succeeded in
accounting for all British airships
while Investigations In Germany show
that no German airship capable of
crossing the North Sea, was near the
German coast.
Still, the people of Dover are satisfied that a flying machine did pass
over the town on Saturday morning

The outrages, It is declared were
obviously the work of experts.

Friend of Bishop Fallon Gives $100,-
000  for   Endowment  of  Catholic
Boys    School.
London, Ont., Jan. ��.���The endowment of a residential school for boys
to the extent of $100,000 by a wealthy
American friend of Bishop M. P. Fallon, of the Roman Catholic diocese of
London, Is announced by his lordship.
The bishop would not make known
the name of the gentleman who makes
the endowment and would give no
clue to his Identity, merely stating
that he Is not a resident of Canada.
The donor'Brovld** that the gift shall
be used ln the erection of a school
tor boys ln the city of London to b*>
known as "Fallon Halt."
The Institution will be In the charge
of the Ursullne nuns of Chatham, who
have a like Institution at Cleveland
Ohio. The school will provide edu
cation for young boys ln much thc
same manner as girls are provided
for In tho different convent academies
The training will, however, be secu
It is expected also that this sclioo'

At present no such Institution exists In Canada under Catholic auspices. Negotiations, Bishop Fallon
stated, have been under way with
the donor for eighteen months during
which time time several locations in
different cities were considered
Through the Influence of Bishoi Fallon, the academy comes to London.
Plans for the new school are now

he commenced as early as posBlbh
next spring. It Is the Intention .to
have the new edifice ready for occu
patlon not later than September, 1914.
Such a school as Is to be erected
was established first by Cardinal New
man at Birmingham, while the Institution at Cleveland, which accommodates 125 boys, was opened by Bishop
Messina. Jan. 7.���When the'walls of
the Church of San Michael, which was
destroyed in the great earthquake of
1908 and has since been known as the
charnel house, collapsed, an Immense
quantity of the bones of the corpses
which had been burled there for
many centuries waa scattered over the
debris and gave It the appearance of
being covered with snow.
The mayor summoned the firemen,
who eventually pulled down the
chnrncl house entirely, and finally
collected the bones and carted them
to a cemetery.
The superstitious people consider
this en evil omen. At the beginning
-of the month a tidal wave washed
away many corpses which had been
burled in the cholera cemetery, and
therefore they fear that a disaster is
Ever since the graves have yielded
corpses the churches have been crowded wltb terror-stricken Inhabitants,

Ottawa, Jan. 7.���An Important
change in the administration of the

one of the world's most famous police

for 40 years, who Is succeeded by

Both Col. White and his successor
are Englishmen, the type of men who
have made British colonial administration such a marvellous success,
creating an Empire In India, a Commonwealth In Australia, a Confederation In South Africa, and a Dominion

Had Long Service.
Lieut.-Col. White Is retiring because
as he says, he feels that be has earned a rest, having completed 45 years
in the service of the government.
Lieut-Col.��� White hardly looks his 65
yeas^if age, and reports or hlB ill
heall"j"have been unfounded. He bas
enjoyed leave of absence since last
The retiring comptroller came to
Canada as a young man and spent a
short time with the Grand Trunk
Railway, later entering the Department of Justice, where he became
chief clerk. When the N. W. M. P.
was organized Lleut.-C.ol. White was
chosen by Sir John Macdonald to take
charge of the new bureau at Ottawa,
where he has remained ever Bince.
Sir John's Idea,
in speaking ot the early days of the
force, Lieut-Col. White said: "The
idea for the force originated with Sir
maintenance of law and order In the
John Macdonald, who believed that for
West and the promotion of settlement
there was nothing like a mounted
force. The record, I think, speaks for
Itself and proves that Sir John was
right . I
"The force was organized In 1853-4,
and began with 300 men, whose first
duty was a patrol of the International |
boundary as far west as the ltockies.
From that line of travel outposts were
established and the development of the
force continued steadily.
"The first addition was to 500 men,
and later, In 1886, co-incident with the
outbreaks ln the NorthweBt, the force
was raised to 1000 men. More recently the force has decreased in numbers and there are now about 700
men ln the organization.
"Something of the glamor of the
wild life of the plains when the me:
were wont to roam at will, or ride for
days on the trail of a lone murderer
bas gone now with the settlement of
the West, and forthis reason, perhaps,
it Iihh been a Utile more difficult tt
get men.
Not So Romantic
"The life in the stations does not appeal quite so strongly, but as an Increase ln ealry has been proposed a
more ready response is looked for,
especially as the work of this organization Is by no means done."
Besides his work as head of the
Mounted Police, Lleut.-Col. White lias
devoted himself wholly to affairs in
connection with Western Canada, and
no one has done more to advance the
Interests of that section of the country. An Important extension of his
work was undertaken tn 1905, when he
was appointed commissioner to administer the government of the unorganized Northwest Territories. At the
time of the coronation of King Edward
he was rewarded with the honor of
He was a captain ln thc Governor
General's Foot Guards and was accorded his rank ot lleutant-colonel In
1301 In recognition of his services in
connection with the raising and equipment ot the .Canadian contingent for
South Africa. In addition to his other duties in 188042 Lieut-Col. White
served as private secretary to Sir
John Macdonald, and waa accorded
tbe status ot a deputy minister In
July, 1883.
The   New  Comptroller.
Lawrence Fortescue, the new comptroller, Is a shining example of the opportunity for a man   of  pluck and
brains in this democratic country.
He began on the lowest rung of the
R. N. W. M. P. ladder, enlisting as a
private In Ottawa and going west to
serve In the ranks. He won hla way

WitU a. f rash that was heard several blocks Away, the huge shed recently built for the B. C. Transport
Company, on the waterfront near the
Fraser river bridge, collapsed yesterday morning .about 10 o'clock.
The heavy fall of snow which had
fallen the day previous had weighted
the roof Of tie structure to such an
extent that the timbers would not
stand the attain and these were snapped off like kindling, making a general
mix up of corrlgated iron, lumber and
The building was located on a wharr
to the east of the stone crushing
plant, which is soon to be placed in
operation, and Was to be used for
storage purposes.
Mr. E. J. Fader, the manager for
the company, was soon on the ground
and started a large gang of men a',
work clearing away the debris.
A large quantity of the corrlgate.l
sheets were badly damaged, and were
cast to one side In order to make room
for the erection of a new building.
Mr. Fader estimate.' the damage at
about J2P00. He would not make any
comment on the probable cause, except to say that the heavy snow wa-
dlrectly responsible for the collapse.
It is understood chat a system of
truss work, which was new to thi3
section of the country, had been used
to hold up the roof. According to Mr.
Fader, work will be started 'ramecl!.
ately on a new building and the accident will not halt the movements o'
the company one lota.

Question of Religious Teaching In the
Schools  Is Discussed���Officers
The twenty-first annual convention
of the Coast Teachers' Institute convened at Victoria yesterday with a
large attendance of delegates from all
parts of the province. Mayor Beck-
with and Dr. Alexander Robinson, superintendent of-education, opened the
first session with addresses of welcome.
Religious instruction In the public
Bchools formed the first topic of discussion to which Miss M. K. Strong,
M.A., a New Westminster delegate,
contributed the statement that the
teachers were instructed in the school
to inculcate morals, and they could
not separate morals from a belief In
God, Immortality, freedom and beauty.
She agreed with Mr. H. B. King, principal of the General Gordon school of
Vancouver, who broached the topic,
that in no way were they justified in
teaching religious dogma to the children. Mr. King stated that the matter
of religious training In the schools,
had created a burning controversy in all parts of Canada. The
Anglican synod was In favor of reading scripture without comment but
as far as he could learn no one had
prescribed it. as a matter ln which
teachers were interested and yet It
was neither political nor religious,
but educational, and he did not think
that It should be dealt with by people outside the professions.
The school, stated Mr. KJng. should
not be asked to fulfill all the functions of the home and the church.
Neither of the latter would benefit
by having the burden of religious Instruction removed from them. He
suggested instead that the selections
from the Bible found In the readers
might be Increased and made more interesting.
Religious training Is not included
in the school curriculum at the present time.
The discussion closed without any
opinion being expressed on the nutter by the convention.
The following officers were nominated for the coming year: Dr. Alexander was re-elected honorary president; Mr. R. Sparling and Mr.
Brough, both of Vancouver, were nonV-
nated for president; Mr. J. M. Campbell, Victoria, was appointed vi'.-e-
presldent; Mr. Gourlay, Vancouver,
secretary, and Mr. R. H. Wilson, South
Vancouver,  treasurer.
