Local Labor Men Appear Before Commissioners Appointed by Provincial Government to Investigate Labor
Conditions���Witnesses Condemn Private Employment
Bur-Mate and Introduction of Asiatic Labor.
i The royal commission appointed to
inquire Into labor conditions in the
-province began tbelr sittings yesterday forenoon, two hours after the
. ��dverttm3d time. The delay Was due
to the majority of the commissioners
being h*ld up on the Interurban cars
by the heavy snowfall ,of Sunday
The witnesses beard were chiefly
connected' with the labor party and
had *yj-ry pronounced political views
An eight hour day with Saturday
.afternoons off, cosh wage payments, a
minimum wage, amendments in the
War-kmen's Compensation for Injuries
Act, the appointment of more factory
inspectors and the more rigorous en-
.forcement of the Factory Acts, the
throwing open of government land
tto settlers, and the condemnation ol
Asiatic labor were the principal views
given vent to by the witnesses.
The llrst witness to express his
���opinion on affairs affecting labor and
ithe relations between the men and
their employers was C. S. Cassidy, of
tthe Stonecutters' Union cf Vancouver. He dwelt at length upon the dispute between the granite workers and
hi n stone wr-rkcirs In .the building
trade. The matter bad heen taken before the Industrial Peace Association

B. C. E. R. Has Difficult
Time Keeping Lines
Coming with a suddenness that
was little expected. New Westminster, Vancouver, and the surrounding
territory was enveloped In a heavy
blanket cf snow once again yesterday
morning which tied up street traffic,
especially on the B. C. E. R., and
made thlnga mighty uncomfortable
for pedestrians.
Tbe fall was of such a weight tbat
street car traffic was suspended on
many lines until late ln.tlie morning,
while for the first time this wlqter
the service on the ' Centra*- Park
branch cf the company was tied up
for over an hour and for the rest of
the day passengers took a chance of
getting into Vancouver anywhere
from one hour to three hours from
the time they started out.
On the Sixth street line conditions
were such that once glance was sufficient for tbe officials to close up the
line for. the day at least, and tur
tbelr attention to the old part line
which accommodated to some extent
tbe people living on the hill.
Twelfth street line between Columbia street and Edmonds went out of
commission early In the morning and
while one or two cf the cars made
the hill, the severe strain on
electrical equipment compelled
eral of them to wend their way bctc't
to the car barns for repairs.
Interurban Manager Purvis and
Superintendents Bison and Stirling
were out early and took charge of affairs. Snow plows and sweepers were
pressed  Into  service,  but  the  damp

The passing of the Burnaby-Westminster Sewer bylaw by Uie people of our neighboring municipality, with
a majority of almost six to one, is evidence in itself that
progressiveness is not confined to any one place. It is also
welcome news to us in Westminster, for it foreshadows
the placing of a bylaw before our own electorate with regard to the Sapperton sewerage scheme, and presages an
early start upon providing this most welcome adjunct to
those living on both sides of the city limits.
All Burnaby's bylaws passed by overwhelming majorities, thus showing that the municipality as a whole endorses the enlightened policy that has been pursued by
Reeve Weart and his confreres in the development of what
is now the largest municipality upon the lower mainland.
Burnaby, during the past two years, has made exceptional progress, and her position today she owes in
great measure to the man who has just relinquished office. Reeve Weart's record should be an inspiration to
any young man, for, starting life as a carpenter, he found
that he was handicapped by physical infirmities, and so
promptly devoted himself to the study of law. He practiced in Vancouver and two years ago entered a public
position for the first time when he became reeve of Burnaby. Unknown then, his capabilities as an administra-
��� tor have since been fully demonstrated.
To Mr. Peter Byrne, now Indian agent in this city,
the credit of acquiring water rights for Burnaby on the
north shore of the Inlet belongs. Reeve Weart has car- ,-annah. aa., Jan. 21. mis, and he
ried out with conspicuous success the work which his pre-, s-,,nt Ma >'outh ana received his ed-
decessor in.ofice made possible by his unselfish tlvmtUAYE,^^

Tcday Is Centenary of Birth of Fremont,   the   Pathfinder.
One of the most important centenaries of the year 1913 is that of today commemorating the one hun-
dreth anniversary of the birth of John
Charles Fremont, explorer, soldier
and statesman. In that rich empire
that stretches along the Pacific from
Vancouver to San Diago, Fremont
will be honored as the great "pathfinder."
Californlans will revere the memory of the man whose bravery nnd
hardihood resulted in the acquisition
bf the Colden State by the union. In
the history cf the Republican party
Fremont holds an important place
aB its first presidential candidate.
Tho south shares in his glory, for
the famous explorer was born in Sa
manufacturers of paper ln Europe
were the French and Dutch. Paper-
making machinery was first suggested
by l.ouis Robert, who sold his model
to Diot, the great printer, who perfected the apparatus, with the assistance of Fourdrlnier. The latter obtained an English patent ln 1S01, and
gradually the paper industry was revolutionized.
The first number cf the London
Daily News was Issued 67 years ago to
day. The News was the first to draw
the attention of western Europe to
the Turkish ntrocitiea in Bulgaria,
and for this the firBt Bulgarian parliament, held in 1879, formally passed a
resolution of gratitude.

Sir���Allow me to point out an
onilssicn and an error in tho liet published In this morning's issue ot the
News of "Men Who Have Shaped
Westminster's Destiny."
In the year 1866 Mr. .John Robeon
was erected President of the Municipal Council, and after serving a
short time he Was elected a member
cf the legislative council of the colony of British Columbia, Frederick
Seymour being then Governor of B. C,
the government residence being on
the site now occupied by the residence
of the Warden of the B. C. Penitentiary.
Upon Mr. Robson'B election to the
legislature he resigned the position of
President of the Municipal Council,
the writer being elected in his place to
serve the balance of his term.

For Quebec Paper Makers If Embargo
Is Removed.
Montreal, Jan. 20���-Mr. Wm. Price
������f Price Bros., paper manufacturers,
believes that tho latest action of Sir
Lomer Gouln in removing the embargo
on paper cut from crown lands will,
mean an Increase ot $1,00,000 per year
to the manufacturers of this Province.
"In adopting this policy," Mr. Price
stated, "the Provincial Government
haB followed In the steps of tho Mc-
Brido Administration, and I am inclined to think that the removal of thc

Engl ;h Vicar's Disclosures���Man Who
Used   Cistern.
London, Jan, 20.���Rev. E. Stogdon,
vicar (f Holy Trinity church, Nottlng
Hill, who wrote to the London Times
st.-n'i :��� "there was not a bathroom in
his parish, and that In Ihe hot oum-
mer a mnn was observed bathing ln
a cistern." said today that the parish
had .*-. population ot 6000 working people, nnd the houses were probably
built bofore tho bathroom era.
"I know my parish pretty well," he
added, "but I have never seen or
heard of a bathroom, as In some cases five or six families live ln one
house. This ls a stat* of things that
should not exist.
The man who used the cistern caused a mild sensation in the district,
it was in tbe sweltering summer of
1910. and the e'stern was on the roof
of his house. I am afraid I cannot
say there waa any strong feeling of
revolt among tbe older generation.
Traditional Instincts do not warm to
tho bathroom theory.

Montreal, Jan. 20���Rev. Principal
Gordon of the Queen's University,
speaking before the Montreal Canadian Club recently said that the Pacific Ocean was destined to become
the scene of a gigantic struggle between Orient and Occident, and Canada, as a "tftctfie Coast nation, must
be prepared to take part 'n that struggle.
In an address on Australia Dr. Gordon dwelt at considerable length on
the growing importance of China and
Japan ae factors in world politics.
Australia was being kept as a white
man's country, and every bar that
could possibly be provided was being
raised against alien Immigration, he
declared. The Labor party, which
ruled the country, waa as one man ln
excluding Asiatics from the country,
and consequently from the labor
Indeed, the speaker said, the policy
of exclusion of the Labor government
was holding back the development of
the. country, for there was no labor to
be had for the building of railroads, or
the cultivation of the vast farms,
which were Australia's chief,source
of wealth.
Comparing Australia with Canada,
Dr. Gordon said that in the Antipodes
the people were more pr less all for
pleasure. Compared with Canada in
other ways, Australia had not yet the
broad hopes that this country cherished, nor had Australia come to the
same degree of self-realization of responsibility or manhood, though this
might be partly due to the fact that
Australia's Government was much
newer than our own.
In many ways, however, Australia
should give Canada a lesson, particularly in its number of botanical and
zoological gardens, public museum-r
and art galleries. Parks and playgrounds, too, abundant; their bookstores could not be approached in this
or any other country; and the public
press of the country was far and away
ahead of the Canadian or American

Them a Grave Warning.
Hiccup Is tbe spasmodic contraction
ot tbe diaphragm. It may be a symptom of tbe most trivial Importance that
yields to tbe simplest kind of treatment or of .a serious and Intractable
affection that persists for a long time

from hiccup; In Its simple form It Is
extremely frequent, but upon tbe

Sometimes the attack comes on without any apparent cause, but It ma/

to tbe distension of Ibe stomach by

shock has also beea known to lead
to Intractable attacks of bit-cups.*
A feeble lafaot wltb whom hiccup
comes to be of dally occurence often
falls Into a state of extreme exbatia
tlon. In sneb a case great core should
be taken to ward off or put un early
atop to tbe attack.
Where there la any serious disorder
of tbe abdominal organs, persistent
hiccup Is s disquieting symptom, and
when It occur* as sn accompaniment
of kidney disease tt is almost always

In simple cases very slight measures
are sufficient. to put an end to tbe

the evening and ordered dinner for
The couple sat at a small table and
were observed talking together affectionately. Soon afterwards the
actress entered. As her eyes fell on
the officer and tbe girl she stopped
short, but, regaining her self-possession, proceeded to a table and ordered
dinner. She viewed with irritation
and Jealousy tbe twq opposite, wbo,
apparently oblivious 6f her presence
were engrossed in each other.
At last unable to restrain herself
at the sight of her rival's triumph,'tbe
actress rushed at the girl aa she rose
to leave the restaurant and seized her
by her beautiful golden hair. To her
intense astonishment the hair came

attached to it, and the face of a middy

The discomfited actress burst Into
tears, and, covering her face with her
hands, fell back on a chair. Friends
tried to reconcile the actress and the
officer as the masquerade had proved
successfully that she still cared for
her former suitor.

London, Jen. 20.���Earl 'Grey, ex-
governor-general of Canada, and foun
der, of the Home Counties Public
House Trust, Limited, spoke af-'tho
opening of the Roebeck hotel, the recently acquired licensed premises of
the trust at puckhurat Hill.
He- referred to the initiation of the
movement twelve years ago on th<>
basis of a license which he secured
himself from tbe licensing courts. At
that time the licensing authorities
came to the decision that a new license was required in the rural part
of Northumberland, where he had a
little property.
He did not want a public house,
which in England is a name given to
non-residential hotels, but thinking he
sent ln his claim, and he waa given
the license. They could imagine his
surprise when, about a month afterwards, he receded an offer from a
solicitor that if he was prepared to
come to terms he thought he would
be able-to* obtain $50,000 by passing
on the license to someone else.
That opened hla eyes-Ho what was
happening. It waa then that he decided to form a public house trust
company in Northumberland, to be
administered, not ln the Interests ot
the publcan, but In the Interests of
tbe public.
The object of the trust was to convert licensed hcuses into real places
of refreahment and comfort, and promote the cause ot temperance. Only
the very best food and. drink were
supplied. One of tbelr principles was
that the man behind tbe bar had no
Inducement whatever to press the
sale of acholic liquor.
On the contrary, the/ managers
were all co-partners, and they received, in addition to their fixed salary,
a comnfisslon on the non-achollc
drink which they sold.

London, Jan. 20.���What had been
regarded as a nwstery In connection
with the New Year's honors Ib now
explained. The career of Dr. George
Turner, who received; a knighthood
reveals another Father Damien.
During twelve years in Capo Colony
as medical ofticei; he rendered services to the cause of humanity which I
had never been'idequately recognized '
exeept by a very few. He completed
the system of lnocculatlon against
the t-lnderpest beg-m by Dr. Kock and
produced a curative preventive Berum.
Within a year after hla appointment
to succeed Drf Kock, rinderpest in
the Cape Colony was absolutely
stamped out. He saved the country
millions ot pounds.
During the uoei war, v nen the ravages of typhoid were i.ppalllngly severe, Dr. Turner, at Ui-d Robert's request, undertook thc tupfcrviBlotr of
the military hospitals a.iJ concentration camps and carried out valuable
work at the constant lilk ot his life.
Among the I e; 'rs.
It was in the midst of these activities that Dr. Turner iicvoled himself
first to the noblest work of his life.
There were then, at to-i leper asylum
at Pretoria, about d'ty Dutch and
forty native patients, i'e gave up all

lepers, doing alt he cou'd to alleviate
their lot and making researches Into
the nature of the dlaen.'C, For three
years he labored without extra pay
of any sort. He saw the lepera early
ln the morning and a.^im when he
came home In the evemug, Saturday
and Sunday he gave to them.
In addition he mad.! si many postmortem examinations us possible. He
was ia his laboratory al dawn in
order to have time for I I.e work. The
visitors, who watch:;J Dr. Turner
moving among the patients in the
asylum bear witness to the passionate
devotion with whicli he wa3 regarded
by all the Inmates.
The saddest feature of this Institution wag, afforded by the leper children born of leper parents, for In many
cases several members of a leper family were ("fclttiltted to live together.
As the medical superintendent moved
about .the asylum which was In the
nature ot a village he was usually
followed by a crowd of these children
by whom he was adored.
A Leper Himself.
On reaching the age limit, Dr. Turner retired to pursue his studies Into
the bacteriological side of leprosy In
the laboratory. It had always been
