Charging   thai
Today marks the passing of the year 1918, a good
year in many respects, rich in different ways, but principally so in experience. Money has been tight, the cost
orliving has risen, business has not been what it was, but
in spite of these facts there are many bright spots to be
located in the past twelve months.
British Columbians and citizens of New Westminster have nothing to fear for the future and nothing to
complain of for" the past year. It has been a hard one
no doubt on a large number, but it has taught its lessons,
lessons that never would have been learned had the bright
sunlight of continued prosperity shone steadily. A little
slackening in the rush of progress is absolutely necessary
in the big scheme of things,' It sifts the gold from the
dross, tests the true value of a man or a community and
leaves the strong ones really stronger, while it eliminates
the poor material and the quitters. Undergoing such an
experience comes a great deal harder on the cities without
the real wealth to back them that New Westminster possesses. In the case of the Royal City it simply marks a
breathing space in the forward march, a year during
which sinews have been tightening and conditions have
been settling down to basic principles in preparation for
the greater onward rush to follow.
With its large agricultural district at its back, its industrial possibilities already bung developed and its magnificent fresh water harbor gradually approaching its
stage of real usefulness, New Westminster has nothing
to fear and everything to hope for in the brilliant future
which is the certain heritage of the province of British
Columbia as a whole.

London, Dec. .0. -Tea. like almost
everything else that figures r.n the
breakfast-table, has risen in price
lately, Seme varieties have gone ut
as much ag id a pound In the whole
sale market during the last year,   For
|once in a way. however, this rise wll
not fjll upon the consumer. The tea
trade is singular in Us refusal to al
low any one bul itseir to suffer from
��� the fluctuations of Ihe market. The
present situation was explained to a
] press representative by a well-known
[ dealer. He gave Ihe following table
of the increase in prices during the
last year:
Best  Indian     Id, per lb.
Indian     2d. per lb.
.Ceylon     2d. per lb.
China  ...  3-.il. to Id. per lb.
"Kour or five yeara ago." he said,
tea wus to be had In bond at 5d. a
pound;   now  the same  quality  costs
' sd. This rise ts due. I think, to an
increased demand all over the world.
Curiously enough the production Is
rising too. Nearly every Continental
nation is now taking Indian and Ceylon tea Instead of China. Russia,
which Is by far the largest customer
for the latter, is also consuming Indian and Ceylon. China tea Is not
popular here; It is quite out of fashion.
"Although tea has Incressed in

organized baseball will be attacked as a trust under the
Sherman anti-trust law, and
as maintaining a black list in
case any Injunctions are sought
to restrain players held under
the reeerve clause, from playing with the Federal league
was Indicated In a statement
issued today by Bdward E.
Gates, of tbls city, counsel for
the Federal league.
New Westminster theatregoers
turned out and almost crowded the
opera house last evening when the
well known Scotch comedy. "Bunty
Pulls the Strings," waa presented. To
say that the play was Scotch was putting it mildly and lt is no exaggera
t.lon to say that "Bunty" pulled the
strings, for pull the strings she did to
perfection, saving her father from the
spinster who had "hooked" him and
marrying him to an old love of hls
early youth. She also marries herself
very diplomatically to the young man
of her choice and saves her brother
Bob wben he is In trouble.
The play was well received and
Dawsey McNaughton merited the applause she received aa "Bunty,"
daughter of Tammas Blggar. Thla
last role was played by J. H. Heron.
Sussle Simpson, Wellum's aunt, waa
clayed by Grace Richardson, while
Wellum Sprunt waa well taken care
of by J. M. McFarllne.

the alleged bogus ten dollar bills had
been found to be genuine and the
whole thing was only a scare due to
to the recent discovery of the -gang
of counterfeiters at Jollette.
Detective Parkinson when he went

I Ernest Shackle ton's plans for his pro-

ia distance, roughly, of 1700 miles,
'making the south pole a halfway
! house on the great Journey, of which
lat least half will be over an entirely
! new route. It wlll be the biggest polar
: journey ever attempted and If successful will open up, in the Weddel
j Quadrant a vast unexplored region,
: which is still a blank on the map.
The actual program of the expedition is dependent upon the monetary
Isubport which may be aecured from
the publlc, but tbere is no doubt tbat
the undertaking will be proceeded
wtth and will be tbe greatest in the
history of Antarctic expeditions. Pro-
j vision will be made in case the party-
has to spend two winters in the south
but Sir Ernest hopes for a mild sea-
'son. which will enable him to reach
Ross sea by May, 1915.
Aeroplane Sledges.
An Interesting feature of the equipment to be used by Sir Ernest will be
sledges driven by aeroplane engines
and an aeroplane with clipped wings
to aid in propelling the sledges over
tho lcc.
The transcontinental party will consist ot six men and 120 dogs. The
animals chosen will be tbose accustomed to team and post work ln Siberia and Alaska and they wlll be
handled by experienced Canadians.
Main Object
In an interview dealing with his
plans Sir Ernest said:
The main object of the expedition
wlll be the crossing of the polar continent. Tbe unknown fields ln the
world which are still unconquered are
rapidly narrowing down, but there
still remains thla great work. Of recent years the Interest ot geographers
and the publlc haa been concentrated
on the approach to the pole from Ross
"Except Dr. Brace's discovery ot
Coats Land tn 1904, and the results of
the Filchner expedition of last year,
we know scarcely more ot the Wed-
dell quadrant tban we did ln Wed-
dell's day. There la a vast unexplored region In the big white apace on
the map.
"The crossing ot the aouth polar
continent will be the biggest polar undertaking ever attempted, a longer
Journey than to the pole and hack and
Infinitely more difficult, because we
ahall alwaya be advancing over new
ground with no depots to draw from.
"Ths minimum distance trom aea to
aea la roughly 1700 milea and mors
than halt the distance wlll be positively a new route. With good fortune it
ia probable that the whole journey wtll
cover new ground. That la to say.
after reaching the pole from Weddetl
aea we may atrlke out a route over to
lloss sea, which wtll be neither that
which I followed on my prevloua jour
ney and which Capt. Soott took, nor
the other and shorter one adopted by

beginning of November. A shore party
of six men will land and proceed im-
medlattly on the march across the continent. Otherwise permanent winter
quarters will be made on Weddell sea
and depots wlll be laid out towards
the pole before the winter, in which
event the expedition will cross the
continent the following year.
"In addition to the six men of the
transcontinental party, there will be
a biologist, a geologist and a physician
attached to the ship. OtherR may be i
added if funds permit Probably 30
men will be taken altogether. We will
also use an aeroplane and aero-motor- j

Candidates  Preparing for Interesting
Campaign Which Opena Early
Next Week.
With the exception of the regular
meeting of the Edmonds District
Ratepayers' association In Moreton
hall on Friday evening, when it Is
expected that the atmosphere connected with the race In ward two will
be cleared somewhat little wlll be
done In the election campaign tn Burnaby until the beginning of next week.
All three candidates for tbe reeveship, D. C. McGregor, A. V. C. Macpherson and Hugh M. Fraser are
preparing tor the opening ot the campaign.
Interest la gaining In the different
fights for councillor In the wards, each
section promising to be well contested.
In North Burnaby Councillors Macdonald and Vau-Vel will be opposed
by A. >!.. Yorston and W. Culley respectively..
In the Bast Burnaby dlatrlct each
of the three candidates. Councillor
Coldicutt, William Karrmann and
Charles Allen are completing their or
ganlsatton and are quietly canvassing
the ward. This race ts causing no
little speculation, the question simmering down as to whether ths Coldicutt opposition will split Rs votes
between Messrs. Karrmann, ud Allen.
Net Yet Decided.
Walter 8. Rosa has yet to glv* his
flnsl decision In ward two, asking tor
further Ume at the laat meeting ot
the ratepayera' aaaoclation. Mr. Roae
It he enters, will be opposed hr D. C.
Patterson, who ta completing two
years' work as school trustee.
In ward one another Interesting race
la foreshadowed by the appearanee ot
William Bevan In tho field, opposed
by Councillor Stride, ths present In-
cwnhent and Otto D^ekert This ts

In Central Park th; Fraser faction
appears to have easy sailing with its
candidate for councillor, William -.array. The present representative.
Councillor Mayne, failed to secure the
nomination from the West Bumaby
association and this Is looked dpon as
a setback on hls chances for re-election. _.' - ' i ".
ln North Burnaby little Interest is
being shown except in the race for
chief magistrate. On account of Ills
activities and assistance In securing
the passage of the B. C. E. R. franchise and the consequent construction
and operation of an additional two
mtles of tram line In the north. Reeve
McGregor wlll undoubtedly pull a
heavy vote In wards four and five. A
considerable proportion of the Vancouver vote ta polled ln North Burnaby
owing to the proximity of the polling
station to the city but whether the
present reeve can retain hla hold cn
the Terminal Ctty vote against Hugh
Eraser, another Vancouver business
man. can atlll be classed ln the doubtful column.

ot the Canada cluh. Then- was, of

thoy said, "ihe l.iiilsh Investing

is prepared to pay the increased price
which world conditions demand."
There wus. ii Is true, the semi-success of the Toronto loan, pointing In
-i contrary direction, but the cmidi-;
lions of Its Issue were regarded as
quite exceptional. Indeed, the appll-|
aallons actually made for tliis Toron
to loan on lhe first day are said to
have nlmost coven d the total of a
million sterling; it was only when
the Canadian government's surprise
tssui of four millions sterling waa put
upon Hie iuarl.i i that some of the
Toronlo applications had to be withdrawn. This is quite possible Beelng
the obligations under which certain
firms [eel themselves lo niv- priority
