Low Price cf Wheat It Responsible-
Lots of Room In Elevators.
Winnipeg, Jan. 13.���Western Canada has no fear of a grain blockade
for the winter of 1913, the main cause
belne the low price of wheat which
Is preventing farmers from shipping.
There le still storage room at the
terminal elevators at the Canadian
heed of the lakes and unless the market goon up very decidedly It ls not
intlclnatcd that much advantage will
be takrn of the emergency rates In
force now for routing Canadian wheat
via Minneapolis and Duluth.
Winnipeg, Jan. 18.���An epidemic of
scarlet fever ls now raging In this
city, according to statementa ot the
health department Of those with the
disease, 70 per cent are adults aad
while many of the case*) are light,
there are many very serious cases.
The health department states thut
it is busy continually investigating
canes and fumigating hourcs. The
hospitals are crowded with all kinds
of patients, especially the contagion
rm-nt and three more will be added
as soon as the aerial truck arrives
and is put in service.
Alderman Henley told of tbe condl
tlons in Sapperton, and said there U
no question but that additional protection Is needed there. Arrangements
are being made now for added equipment and with the Increased water
pressure there should be little danger.
A petition ls now in for these improvements. A new hall is also needed In Queensborough, but a by-law
WIS have to be submitted to the peo
nle Before the money can be secured
for the buildings. More alarm boxes
I are badly needed also, but as the
boxes alone cost $100 and tbelr in
staUatton as much more, money for
these will have to bo secured by the
same means. There are now 105
hydrants and 24 boxes.
Mr. J. Irwin spoke along the same
'hies, telling as he did In Queens-
borongb on Saturday evening. He emphasized the need of better fire protection tor Sapperton, and while he
stated that he did not blame the
council for the lack of equipment
showed that, there Is an alarming
shortage* ot both hose and hydrants.
He said, however, that except for n
petition which was granted a year or
two ago, and the present petition relief has never been asked.
In closing, he stated that while be
lived ln Sapperton. he would not represent Sapperton alone should he be
elected, but devote his best efforts for
s good administration for the entire
cltv. Mr. Irwin's remarks were appreciatively received.
Bryson Hits Out *
Then came the deluge. Only this
time there was only a little water
mixed up ln the, flow of works which
emanated from the versatile tongue
of Ex-Alderman .1. S. Bryson. He
started off by protesting against the
arrangement of the program and
stated that he could plainly see thc
hand!work of hla worship In the nr
rangoment. He said Mayor I.ee was
deterp'lned that he should speak first.
Then he denied that he was such a
kicker as the papers and some people would make him appear, and that
he was not in It with Mayor Lee.    ,
"Why Mayor Leo Is the greatest
kicker ln Now Westminster. A year
ago, with tbe assistance of some of
his friends, he kicked me so high in
the air that I hardly got down," he
��� Mr. Bryson continued tn this vein
for some moments, and while to some
his remarks were no doubt tunny, to
many of the ladles which msde np the
big audience, they teemed hardly ln
good taste.
i    He then started In to tell of some
'ot hit past "kicks," which had later
ful irlck, by ^^^^^^^^
their reports and then allow" the can
didates to speak tor a few minutes
He said they have no money to rent
a hall tor tqmorrow night, and some
one In the audience suggested that an
open air meeting be held.
"We are put up here for the brains
of the city to knock down," is the way
Mr. Peebles sized It up.
The candidate for councillor then
launched Into his speech, stating that
he thought the council were not taking as good care of their money as
they did ot their own. He thought
that much money had been thrown
away on the streets, but didn't feel
that It was necessary to specify which
particular streets, the money apparently being dropped from a baloon
and a little ot It finding a resting
place on nearly all of the highways
and byways of the town. The wag tn
the audience got busy again, and '

Although the alderman would
bave preferred a fight he feelt
deeply the "ronor and also tbe
responsibility which the .electors ot New Westminster bestowed' upon him when they
selected him to lead them
through the year 191$.
Speaking after the failure of
any ether citizen to,tile nomination papers at tbe city hall
yesterday afternoon the mayor-
elect said ln part:
"I teel that the present epoch
In the history of New Westminster it the most Important in
her history and I am correspondingly grateful that the citizens ot this, my native home,

stated that an additional by-law may
be necessary for equipment which Is
at present entirely Inadequate.
In Alderman White's report of the
library committee a marvelous growth
was shown. Last May there were 436
borrowers enrolled, and at the end of
the year the enrollment was 769. In
the six weeks ending June 30, 621
volumes had been taken out, while in
the month of December just passed
the circulation was 1324. A total of
233 new volumes had been added also
tn the last year. A new system of
cataloguing Is also being put ln. Mr.
White said the city was extremely
fortunate ln securing the present
The parks was' ibe next subject,
and the alderman told of the work
that had already been done tn pre-
naration for the expenditure of the
$25,000 which the voters authorised
last summer. The engineering work
Is already started,' Queens park being
partly surveyed for Improvements, and
Moody square. Brunette park, and
Albert Crescent are receiving attention also. The engineering work has
been done at a cost to the city ot only
$946.53. while its resl value la at
least three times that amount.
Plants Worth $11,000.
Discussing the criticism of Mr. Jardine at the meeting last week on tbe
purchase by the city of $3760 worth
of shrubs, Mr. White stated that these
plants are now ln a nursery at Queens
park, and experts have declared them
wortfi $11,000, at a conservative estimate.
A Fine Hospital.
Alderman Dodd, chairman of the
health committee, opened with a
slight reference to the pew Isolation
hospital which waa established during his term of office, declaring that
it was equal to any tn the province.
Thanks to the generosity of the people the city had now a flret class gar
bage plant which the alderman assured the audience was meeting all
the requirements.
The aim ot tho health department
the labor councillor stated, was to
make a clean city. Two of the' mot:
Important incisures Introduced by the
speaker during 1912 were the new
sanitary and health by-laws.
Referring to the receipts ot the department, Alderman Dodd claimed
that this was the first year in the history of the city that any revenue bad
been derived from the branch.
Referring to the workingmen who
had again placed him In the field aa

sist Liberally in Kings-
way Project.
ter Reevcsh/p Contest in
Kdmonds, Jan. 13.���The letting of'
the Kingsway paving contract and the
withdrawal cf Burnaby from the'
North Arm of the FraBer harbor commission Idea featured the last meeting
of tbe present Burnaby council which
was held this morning.
The successful contractors for the
paving Scheme were the Canadian
Mineral Rubber Co., Ltd., whose bid
of $334,000 was found to be the most
feasable and economical by botb the
council and the provincial government.
For the first time the public are
Informed that the provincial government has gone on record that It will
finance half the cost of the gigantic
paving project which will link Burnaby by a paved highway into New Westminster (Twelfth street), and also the
proposed paved road ot South Vancouver at Central Park.
The grant from the government will
be made ln two annual Installments
covering tbe years 1913 and 1914,
while Burnaby's share will be paid on
the local improvement plan.
A feature of the contract, which Is
of course subject to the passing ot
the roads by-law and also the sanction
of the incoming council, was a clause
which binds the successful bidders to
pay all maintenance charges covering
a period of ten years and to enforce
this clause the municipality will hold
out a sum ot $21,000 until 1923 which
will then be paid ovor to the contractors should the road be in a condition
satisfactory to both the .municipality
and also the government.
A Big Saving.
As explained by tho reeve, Burnaby
will be saving a matter of from $50,-
000 to $76,000 which would otherwise
be spent In keeping up the present
macadam road between the limits of
New Westminster and South Vancouver, "..--���.- .
The substantial grant from the Via
torla authorities will no doubt come
at a surprise to the electorate as
South Vancouver was only able to obtain a grant of $70,000 last year for
their share of tho work which has not
yet been paid and Is not lfkely to be
unless the municipal council come to
better terms with the minister of
public works, Hon. Thomas Taylor,
over the material to bo used on thi
Endorse Local Scheme.
The friendly feeling of Bumaby to
wards New Westminster was shown
when, following tbe reading ot a letter
from Mayor Lee, asking Burnaby to
support a harbor commission for the
whale river Instead of a separate commission for tbe North Arm of the
Fraser, Ihe council passed a motion
wlthdraXring from the latter scheme.
lt was explained In the letter (hat
two bills ware now before parliament
at Ottawa, Melting commissions not
only tor the entire river, such as the
Westminster, scheme covers, but also
a separate one for tbe North Arm of
the Fraaer which, until a few days
ago, had the support of the municipalities of Burnaby, South Vancouver,
Richmond and Point Grey.

As long ago as September 4 last we issued an appeal
for the better regulation of the milk traffic in the city and
valley under the caption of "Save the Children." Since
that time the Royal Commission appointed to inquire into
the subject has had its sessions here, but although a report is doubtless ready for tabulation by this time, still
nothing has been done in the way of reform.
One of the results of delay is brought home to us today in the loss of the life of a little child and the serious
illness of over forty people, the cause for all which is directly traceable to a tainted milk supply.
There has long been evidence that milk is not handled
In that careful a*nd sanitary manner necessary to ensure
protection from death-dealing germs. We called attention to this five months ago, it was abundantly evident at
the sitting of the milk commission, and, if parents and the
citizens in general require any further proof, surely they
are confronted with it now.
The time has long come, but is nevertheless with us
still, when we should insist upon the Dominion Government taking action that will enable some persons in British Columbia to sit for the necessary examination, so that
they, being duly qualified, may institute prosecutions under the provisions of the Pure Foods Act.
The city authorities long ago realized their powerless-
ness in the matter and have been working for a considerable period towards having this matter rectified.    The

ate is composed of 300 members, none
under forty years of age, elected for
nine-year terms. The Chamber of Deputies, which has 597 members, is elected by universal sutfruge, while the
Senators are chosen by special commissions. The political affiliatloons of
the deputies are as follows: 262 Radicals and Radical-Socialists; 78 Progres

The program for the session which

when the Chamber will elect its presiding officer. Tomorrow the Republican senators and deputies will hold
a caucus to choose the "Left's" candidate for the Presidency, among a
large number of aspirants. On Thursday the Senate will choose its presiding officer, and on Friday both houses
of parliament will convene at Versailles to" take up tbe serious task of selecting "Papa" Fallleres' successor.
This important gathering will be held
in Congress Hall of Versailles Palace.
It Is certain that the name of president Fallleres will not be considered.
In the first place, while there Is no
definite law on the subject, tradition

has heen an- honest and able executive, but ho is too bourgeois In his
tastes to please the fashionables, and
he has aroused the opposition of powerful financial Interests, who hide the
real cause of their animosity by call-^
ing him a "weakling."
While the Socialists In the French
National Assembly are not powerful
enough to elect one of their own number to the Presidency, they will decide the issue. Their attitude has

"We don't eypect to elect a Socialist president., but our compact force

for him who will give us the greatest
guarantees of democracy, social progress,   peace,   and   electoral   justice."

For thc first two or three years after the rush to Yukon bogati in 1897,
all winter travel waa done by dog
team. Dogs were succeeded by "dou-
ble-onder" sleighs drawn by one horse.
The country was then thought to be
civilizing rapidly. The single horse
and the "double-ender" wore Bmooth
trails on old Yukon's ley bosom until
the "overland" trail was built in 1902,
and two, four, and six horse stages
were employed, after which year the
single rig existed only in memory.
At present there is a desire to supersede the comfortable stage with automobiles, which, It is claimed, will
make faster time, and perhaps they
will If given good trails on which te
operate. But the fact remains, record

In December of 1S99, and when the
railroad only ran as far northward
as Bennett, a dog-team made from
Dawson to Bennett by the river and
lakes in three days and twenty-one
hours, a distance of 460 miles. Iu
those days only letter mail was carried, but the Bouth-bound consignment
averaged from 400 to 600 pounds each
trip. That record has never yet been
The   best   stage   record   ever  made

macadamizing of streets, constructing
timber sidewalks, crossings, etc., clearing and flushing paved streets and Installing house connections to sewers.
The work under this head haB been
a Bavlng sufficient to pay for the coBt
of the wagons.
The oiling of roads was carried out
during tbe summer months giving
considerable relief In some districts,
but owing to the great demand tor oil,
more oiling could not be done,
I would recommend that an oil tank
be purchased to fit on the body of one
of the Bteam wagons so oiling can
be carried out more rapidly and economically than Heretofore.
I strongly recommend that a ''reproof vault be built tor the safe-keeping of the hundreds of plans and
other records In my department which
represent many hundred thousand dol

estimated. Tbe progress of the works

Pilots at  Fault.
Ottawa, Jan. 12���The pilotage system of Canada Is to be enquired into.
The shipping interests, more especial
ly thoBo on the St. Lawrence, have
long been urging the propriety of such
action, and the recent accidents in the
river and gulf have emphasized the
need of it.
The wreck commissioner who conducted the enquiries found the pilots
to blame In moat cases.
It ls now understood that a commission will be appointed to investigate
the whole pilotage ayBtem. The enquiry will Involve the system of appointment of pilots and the off-repeated assertion that it comparatively Is
a close corporation.
The commission will be composed

Atter the flooding or the river thlt
year several leaks appeared In tht
Lulu Island submerged water main,
which on Investigation appeared tc
bo caused by the movement of the
sandy river bottom which left som>-
of the Joints of the pipe without
supports. These holes were no doubt
In some cases, caused by eddies from
the piles of bridge and probably waterlogged snags lying close to th,
pipe line.
The pipe has now been repaired and
the water will he turned on again
as soon as the concrete foundations
have time to set.

The Increased cost or maintenance
over 1911 is $10,74166. This Increase
In expenditure has been necessitated
owing to the fact that more paved
streets are now being used and require cleaning and flushing.
During the year 1913 with the completion of several more miles of
paved streets, I would recommend
the incoming council to seriously consider the purchase of sn automobile
nutomatic street flushing machine
Which will he more efficient and more
economic than another horse-drawn

of hauling rock and other material
was made early ln the year, but the
wagons were not delivered until tote

Lack of Good Roads, Expenses Entailed in Clearing Land, Difficulty in Securing Farm
Hands, High Taxes, and Evils Caused by Large Blocks of Land Being Held for
Speculation Purposes Brought to the Notice of the Commissioners���Witnesses Declare Rates on B. C. E. R. Are Not Uniform���Will Be in Session Today.
That  the  three  greateBt  problems | zie deplored the lack of dairying cx-
whdeh confront the present and pros
pectlve settlers of the Fraaer valley
are lack of good roads, the difficulty
and expense incident to clearing the
land, and tho labor problem, was the
gist of the evidence brought out by
some half dozen witnesses examined
by the Royal Commission on Agriculture which opened a two day session
In th��, city hall yesterday morning.
High taxes, and the evil of tbe speculators who buy land and bold it for
years without cultivation in the hope
of selling for a big profit, were also
touched upon. Suggestions for the elimination or lightening of the burden
were made by the witnesses and will
be considered by the commission in
framing Its report to the government.
The commission met at 10 o'clock tn
the Board of Trade rooms. All the
members were present, including Mr.
W. H. Hayward, M.P.P. of Victoria,
chairman. Mr. Alexander Lucas,
M.P.P., Vancouver, Mr. S. S. Shannon,

that but for this fact a great many
more people would go In for'Balrying.
He said the receipts of cream at the
local creamery have been steadily falling off in the laBt few years, due to
the Increased demand for milk. The
farmers found more profit in selling
their milk than in skimming it for the
"We have the finest dairying coun-.
try  on   the  continent  of  North   America," said Mr. MacKc-nzie, "and yet
the demand for milk, butter and cream
Is  greater tban  the  supply  by  far."
Following Mayor Lee's welcome, Mr.
Hayward stated that all members of
the commission realizes that anything
done for the benefit of the farming
Industry will benefit the Fraser valley
and Delta more than any other section
of the province as It is here that the
best agricultural districts of the province are located.
Mr. Sinclair thought taxes were too,
high, and should be reduced for bona
fide farmers. The price of land is
also too high, forcing many dairymen
out of business.    He would have the
On account of the meeting of the' government clear the land, and give
council at the same time as the com
mission, Mayor Lee was unable to be
present at the opening. He appeared
shortly after, however, and welcomed
the members of the commission to the
city, and offered them any assistance
in the power of the city officials or |
himself. Chairman Hayward announced that the commission would
return to New Westminster next Bummer and his worship asked that an
opportunity be given the city to show
them about the district in automobiles.
Adjournment Today.
This is thc second city in which the
commission has held an inquiry, hav-
the owners an opportunity of paying
for it In ten years, with Interest at
five per cent. He promised to look
into the question further and to appear again at the later sessions next
A Hard Proposition.
Mr. F. Kearsley, living on 140 acres
at Strawberry Hill, gave a most interesting illustration of what the present day farmer Is up against. He
said he has lived for nine years on
this place with his wife, a daughter
and a son. All of them are at home,
and he makes from his place about
$1000 a year. This Is the only salary
they get.
He has 20 acres of his land cleared

conditions and recommend such legislation as they think will remove
some of the burden from the over

' thousand pounds of currants were
! raised on the same land, which
j brought eight cents per pound.
Mr. Kearsley thought taxes were too
high and there are too many restric-
j tions hedging a homcF.teader. He
; says they are not allowed to Bell the
I timber on their land but are permitted
! to burn it.   Tliey cannot even do this
W. Noble, a meat dealer of Eburne,
also had a grievance against the B. C.
Electric, stating ihat a charge of 50
cents per hundred on cattle is made
front Cloverdale io Eburne. He says
he chn get cattle In carload lots from
Cajgary for 50 cents per hundred. He
also had something tc say for the
cause of good roads, urging that ihe.
beat roads possible be built.
A. Brehaut, a Coqultlam dairyman,
told of his experiences  In  the dairy
buslpess.    He has 105 acres which ls
assessed at a valuation of $360.   Fifty
acres are cleared.    He keeps 35 cattle
aud gets an average price of 11 cents
pefjfluart  for his  milk,  which  costs
Ii I in to prcduce about 30 cents per gallon. ;���'He says he can sell all the milk
he gets.   Little or no trouble has been
experienced   with  the   labor problem.
Ho,do?sn't use machines, but says that
two'rnen can milk 40 cowb in about
an hiqiur with four machines.
Cost of Clearing.
Joseph  Shannon,  a  pioneer farmer
of the Ag.isslz  district,  living at St.
Klma, nave some interesting testimony
of His experiences.    He stated It costs
h|*n. about $150 nn acre to clear his
l8.nt**'.Swhicli  Is not heavily  timbered.
Another point in his favor Is that he
obtains his powder at a cheaper rate
than others.    Thc chief obstacles of
the settler, he said was clearing land,
the scarcity of labor, and poor roads.
He also stated that he was not on a
farm lor the purpose of making money
but merely (o have something to do.
"if it were not for the land clearing question," said Mr. Shannon, "we
would get ten settlers to one on the

The National league's first fight
against Its sturdy rival was In 1884,
when the Union Association was organized. The circuit consisted of Baltimore, Altoona, Boston, Philadelphia,
Washington, Chicago, St. Louis and
Cincinnati. This was probably the
worst year in the history of the game.
Many clubs and leagues disbanded.
The Union Association had Its troubles
from the start, and Altoona was soon
replaced by Kansas City. All clubs of
all leagues lost money, and for a time
the sport seemed on IU last legs. The
American Association was organized
n 1882, with the Philadelphia Athletics, Baltimore, PlttBburg, Cincinnati, Louisville and St. Louis as charter members. The association and the
National league continued on friendly
terms until the trouble of 1890 came
up and started a war.

In Its history. He gave assurance
that all the lights petitioned for would
be Installed within the next two
weeks' time.
Just to Bhow in a positive manner
the efficient way under which the
light department had been conducted,
Alderman Lynch introduced figures
showing the cost of construction and
maintenance during 1912, and the
estimated cost of the same items during 1313.
He placed the cost of construction
during 1912 at $41,275.85, while his
estimates for tbe same time ln 1913
are $25.00(1. The maintenance during
the year Just ended amounted to
$41,179, while for 1913. it is placed at
$40,914, or approximately $1000 lees
than In 1912.
The following is a detailed account
under the impression that this was
the case. That it was not so was
tho emphatic declaration of the water
chairman, as the Vancouver Power
Company was under a binding agreement to pay all out-of-pocket expenses
incurred by the city, whatever they
might be, and ln addition give the
city a bonus of $10,000. Thus far the
company was bound to pay $7000.
Need Feel No Alarm.
In any circumstances the citizens
might feel no alarm for their waiter
supply, waB the definite assurance of
the alderman.
Mr. Curtis closed with the statement
that he was sorry he was retiring
from the council.
Goes After Opponents.
While he declared that he bore no
malice to any of his opponents. Alder
man Kellington went unremittingly
after his critics and refuted all the
insinuations wade by logical argu
In entering upon an account of his
stewardship Mr. Kellington eulogized
the etfortB of Aldermen Dodd and
Henley, the other members of the
board of works committee and staff
and the officials of the engineering department. He spoke of the reorganization,  which  had  been  one  of  the
ing that lt was well worth every cent
it had cost, and the city has done bettor as a result of this trip than almost
any other city ln the Dominion. He
discuBBed the subject ot people kicking
on the money spent for travelling expenses of $25 on a Victoria trip and
$35 on a Seattle trip, and remarked
that some people are bound to kick
even though they are getting full
value and then some for money expended. '
Hogg Makes Hit.
Mr. A, Hogg, one of the labor candidates, made a good speech which apparently was well received. He stated that he had never been honord by
being elected to office but had been
highly honored by the laboring men
of the city in being nominated as one
of the three men to stand for the
council. This he conslderel almost as
great an honor as being elected. He
thought the labor committee had
shown good judgment in endorsing
Alderman (lay for mayor, and stated
that he expected to see a most successful  administration.
Mr. Hogg told of his advocacy ot reform in public owned utilities, whereby water, light and gas will be sold
to the public at cost. He promised to
go further into this question at the
meeting on Wednesday night.
Had to Appear.
Mayor Lee first apollglzed for appearing in the campaign at all except
to give a short review of his administration, but stated that in view of the
fact that he had been criticized very
freely by various candidates for alderman he could hardly do less than explain some thingB which might not be
entirely clear to all of the electors.
The remarks of Mr. Bryson anent the
1911 bond Issue he disposed of when
committee's  accomplishments  at  the  he reminded the voters that a most
explicit report of this incident had
been given the ratepayers during the
campaign a year ago. It waB at that
time shown to be a falsehood and had
no business in the present campaign.
He criticized Mr. Bryson for telling
only half a story.
Replying to criticism of his London trip, the mayor briefly told how
the money market ,was    flooded    at
beginning of the year 1912, and laid
stress on the fact that this had resulted in all the departmental work being
done with greater economy than previously.

Vancouver, which was forced to pay

on a flotation of $500,000 and of Alberta wblch was forced to pay 5 3-4 per

Discuss Finance.
The present condition of the city's
finances were taken up, and Mayor
Lee showed that the city Ib now practically out of debt to the bank, and all
of the old debtB and the 1912 temporary loan has been cleaned up. The
year 1913 Is being started with a slate
as clean as lt could possibly be. The
earnings of 1912 showed a surplus of
$7000 or $8000 over the expenditures.

Today ls the 22nd anniversary of
-the end of the second great baseball
-war, and lt was on Jan. 14, 1891 tbat
-ibe conference committees ot the National league and American association adopted a new national agreements stopping tbe strife that had almost disrupted organized bait. The
���sdirect enure of the memorable war
of IHDti was the reserve clause tn contracts. Most of the disgruntled players under contract to the National
league, for the 1890 season took part
in the brotherhood movement and
joined the Player*' league, wblch had
the backing of several capitalists who
thought they say an opportunity for
rich pickings. The Players' league
circuit paralleled that of the National
league. Throughout the season the
fight was carried on In a relentless
fashion, at a great financial loss, and
affected ihe American association aa
-well as the two leagues directly at
war. The following winter the rivals
adjusted Otakt differences/but tn the
reached the record amount of $25.00n
In 1912. A total of $25,481 was
charged in 1911 and $26,000 in 1912.
Alderman Lynch also referred brief
ly to the new contract made with the
B. C. E. It. for the supply to the city
of power. This would effect a saving
of $10,000 In 1913 alone, he observed,
lie declared that lt had been the wish
of the department to Install a number
of new street lamps late last year,
but on account of the fact that they
were practically unavailable en the
coast they had been forced to wait
some considerable time for even a
small portion of the order. ,
The alderman also referred to the
proposed new Jail and store house,
stating that the preliminary plans for
the structure had been prepared and
a special architect would have tho
permanent ones finished In a short
Praises Mayor-elect
Alderman Curtis, chairman of the
water committee, preceded his statement with a few complimentary remarks towards Mayor-elect Gray,
stating that he was a much under
estimated man and tbat ho had found
him a better alderman that he expected.
The water department, observed
Mr. Curtis, had given entire satisfaction during the year with one or two
exceptions. Ue went Into considerable
detail is to the cost of the various
component parts that make up the
water system, stating that altogether
tt had cost approximately $900,000
One 25 Inch main and another 14
Inch main 14 miles long supplied the
water from the lake to the reservoirs
which had a total capacity of four and
a half million gallons. The reservoirs
were all well filled and soma were
always on the overflow.
Touching upon the two proposed
submerged mains across the North
Arm, Alderman Curtis said that surveys had already been made for them,
but no definite action regarding the
Improvement bad been taken.
The alderman made the gratifying
statement that the expenditures dur
Ing 1912 had been within both thc
estimates and the by-laws, although
additional expenditure had been
caused by the Installation of permanent mains on paved street*.
Publicity Helps.
Aldernlan Curtis also gave a short
account ot the affairs of the publicity
bureau of the city, declaring that lt
had boen helpful In bringing repre-
���mntatlves of 293 families to the city
Many nationalities were represented
amon a the Immigrant*.
Even though the bureau had been
most successful tt had been conduct
ed along economical line* with the result that all the money voted for Its
nnkeoo wa* not ret need up, declared
Mr. Curtis.
Referring back to the water system,
Alderman Curtis observed that there
had been conrtderabto agitation regarding condition* 'around the Coqultlam dam'. In explaining the city'*
position la thi* retard the speaker
stated that It wa* one* thought that-
New Westminster owaed the title to
considerable IMS around the lake, hut
work of the contractors.
The main arteries of the city were
always kept In mind by the department. Two of theBe had been put in
condition by the 1911 council while
tho balance of seven had been turned
into first class roadways by the means
of grading, macadamizing and paving
during 1912. The paving of tbe short
streets between Columbia and Front
streets was also effected last year,
Case of Sorehead.
In an endeavor to discredit the engineer's department lt had been alleged that the good part of the Improvement work had been costly snd
expensive. No doubt, Alderman Kellington observed, some foreman or
contractor, who had done inferior
work, and had been forced to do it
over again, had circulated the stories.
"All the engineers are very capable
men," said Mr. Kellington, "and If you
get men In tbe council who get ou*t
on the atreeta and complain of their
work you will not keep them long."
Referring to the criticisms regarding his department made by Mr. Peter
Peebles, Mr. Kellington stated that it
appeared as though some outsiders
had secured statements from the treasurer before they were presented to
the council. The charge that the city
engineer was sole arbitrator ln the
ease ot disputes waa declared absolutely false as It specifically states In
contract agreements tbat ail disputes
will be refered to three arbiters by
whose decision the contracting parties
are to be bound.
Just a Dream.
It had been charged, continued the
candidate, that the Bithulithic paving
ln Point Grey had been done cheaper
than in this city. One of the "would-
bes," sad said the Point Grey paving
costs $1.25 per square yard while New
Westminster paid $2.26 tor the same
measurement. As a matter of tact
Point Grey paid $1.80 for a total of
four Inches of bithulithic with no
curbs or any finish to tbe streets
while New Westminster paid $2.25 for
ber paving with curbs, complete finish
and six inches if bithulithic. In addition the base of the New Westminster bithulithic was of a more permanent character than that of the other
municipality. Mr. Kellington bad positive proof of his figures on hand In
tho shape of letter* from the engineer
ot Point Grey.
The candidate belittled the suggestion of Mr. Peebles that the city would
save a great deal of money by the establishment of a cement testing plant.
"Suppose one were established,"
Mr. Kellington said, "and tha operator made a mistake, tbe.ctty would
be forced to remake all work ."at It*
own cost At present if a contractor
does not finish his job to the satisfaction of the engineer-he I* compelled
to replace It
"There I* nothing easier than faultfinding," commented Mr. Kellington,
"It require* no brain*, no self-denial,
no capital, and no talent to aet one up
In the grumbling business. I boar no
malice against thoae people bnt advise them to think before they make
statement* a* to reckless expenditures."
8e**"�� Flcures. ���
Mayor-elect Gray, a* chairman of
the finance committee ot the 1912
council made a report en the finance*
of the city showing that the affair*
of the city were tn very good shape.
The speaker then took up the que*-
ment   In   Victoria,  and   he   therefore
wants to help run the city."
His worship then went on to explain
'hat the temporary loan bylaw to
which -Mr. Peebles has such an aversion. Is a necessity and is issued ln
every city ln the country to tide them
over until the taxes come in.
Going even further Into the depths,
his worship took up Mr. Bryson's claim
of credit for forcing the Vancouver.
Power company down to bed-rock in
building the Coqultlam dam. The city
had nothing to do with the building of
this dam, but did want the land surrounding the lake. The case has been
strenuously fought and ia not yet settled. He told of the appointment by
the provincial government of a competent engineer to see that the water
supply of Westminster was safeguarded in every way. This was done, and
A. O. Powell, the present harbor engineer, is responsible more than any
other One man for the company being
forced to get down to blue clay before
putting In the foundations of the dam.
The recent muddy water, said the
mayor, mlgbt hove happened at any
time before the dam waB completed,
although everything In reason bad
been done to prevent such an occurrence.
Another Pipe Dream.
The charge, that secrecy Is being

Talking Pictures Come
From Edison9s Brain
New York, Ja��. 13.���Thomas A. Edl-
���son sat back in his chair and chuckl-
��d this afternoon in the theatre ot
his laboratory at West Orange, N. J���
_s there passed upon a screen in front
of him a procession of human beings
and animals that sang and talked aud
shouted and played upon musical Instruments, and barked and made various other noises that moving pictures
have never before furnished.
lt waB a moment of triumph for
Edison, the result of four years ot
unremitting effort to reproduce sound
jiynchronOusly with action.
"That's a little raw yet," laughed
the vizard to the newspaper reporter
lie had Invited Out to witness tho first
demonstration publicity of his newest
Invention, "but you Just give us a
��hance and we'll show you. We're
green at working these things yet."
There may have been something
"raw'' to the trained eyes of Thomas
_, Edison, but to the rest of the spectators It seemed tbat a complete sue
onus had been achieved.
Real and Lifelike.
For the first few seconds of the exhibition lt looked just like regular
""movies." A large man ln evening
<lrens strode down a flight of staini
and to the front of a lavishly furnished drawing-room until he reached thu
of  the  old   songs   while  the  pianist
aud violinist accompanied her.
Collie Dogs Barked.
They went away���and you could
hear their footsteps as they walked
up the stairs���and another man appeared with two collie dogs, whose
loud barks were as natural as life.
That one complete reel, and it had
taken Just six minutes to show, two
minutes more than the other phonograph disc revolves.
Before thc show was over, four more
"sketches" were exhibited, and In each
the Illusion was maintained. Two of
these Mr. Edison bad not seen himself before, and he laughed heartily
as an Irish politician ln one of them
delivered an Impassioned political oration, which his daughter, standing behind, read to him out of a newspaper.
The most startling manifestation of
the synchrony of sound and action
came when a brick was sent crashing
through a window above the speaker's
head. You could plainlv hear the tinkle of each piece of glass as lt fell
clattering to the floor.
Absolutely Perfect
Various examples of moving picture
films were shown. There was a melo-
���lrnmlc sketch. "Her Uedemptlon," In
which the exclamations of two struggling men were exactly audible. Then
there was the scene from "Julius Cae-

About fifteen years ago the archway was closed by the railway company to the intense Indignation of tbe

Announced IU Intention of closing the

feeling that the local authorities Intervened, and the company apparently
abandoned Its purpose.

Into the valiey and a siding was In
