Description of Robbers.
When the robbers boarded the train
at Burlington nobody paid much attention to them, but from the train
crew and some of tbe passengers tbe
following description has been made
up: One, the man who did the shooting, was about five feet eight inches,
fairly well built, smooth shaven, well
will be captured
Shots as Warning.
The  pair of  bandits    boarded    the I
train at Burlington, Wash., each buy-;
ing a ticket to Bellingham.   They rode
about ten miles when they got up and
left the day coach in which they had
been riding and went out to the vest!* I
Utile.    There they tied handkerchiefs j
over the lower portions of their faces
and returned to the car.   Standing to-'
gether at one end of the coach, the
.shorter called on the passengers in;
the seats, of whom there were about
45 or B0, to throw up their hands.
Some of them did not comply with
the command and, to emphasize it,
the robber fired two shots the full
length of the car, one of which went
through a grip at a lady's feet, while
the other burled Itself In the woodwork over the door, from whore It
was dug by detectives when the train
reached Bellingham. The shots had
the desired effect and up went every
pair of hands in the car.
Women Not Molested.
The man with the gun stood his
ground at the end of tbe coach, while
his companion, who was taller and of
slighter build, commenced to
through the passengers. The ladles
were not molested and one of them, a
negro woman, who had slipped to the
floor almost in a faint was told to
climb back into her seat and keep
quiet The taller man then resumed
his journey through the car, taking
money from the passengers as he
werrt, but, as he reached the centre
seats, he was becoming visibly more
agitated bis hands shook and he
merely touched the cash in some of
the pockets without removing it. In
orie man's trousers overlooking a roll
or $600.
Cold Blooded Deed.
The three men who subsequently
fell victims to the robbers' guns were
all sitting at the end of the car farthest from where the bandits had entered and had time to plan resistance.
ly and was so cold blooded that, as;
cue passenger said, the Bcene will re-.
main engraved in his memory as long
as he lives. A muffled shot was first
heard, evidently coming from the gun
of the bandit on the floor, but this waa
drowned In the rattle of the other
robber's cold automatic. Running up
close to the struggling group he shoved the gun within six inches of the
bodies of tho three defenceless passengers, a rapid succession of shots
rang out, and when the echoes had
died away the trio lay lifeless on the
floor.
Tome on, I guess they're all dead,"
said  the shorter man  who had done
the shooting and the pair went down
the coach in the direction from which
go | tbey had come.
Bandits Disappear.
Conductor Waldron, who had been
going through the train taking tickets
was in the dining car at the time of
the shooting and the first he heard of!
it was from the dining car conductor,;
who, from the vestibule of his car had!
beard the firing. Waldron pulled the
air rope and the engineer brought the
tram to a standstill, but before it had
come to a dead Atop the bandits had
dropped to the ground and disappeared
in the bush. It was believed that the
emn had a boat cached at South Bellingham about five miels from where
they left the train and that in this
they   Intended   to   make  their  escape,
kept and showed no signs of having
done any hard work,   lie would weigh
In the neighborhood of 186 pounds.
Both Nervous.
Both men were extremely nervous,
the one who went through the passengers' pockets in particular, while
tbe Colts automatic In his companion's
hands was seen to be shaking.
The- handits evidently thought the
smoking car, which was filled with
men, too hard a nut to tackle and
started with the day coach, in which
there were a sprinkling of women.
Their work ended there, for before
they 'had gone through the hand-to-
hand   scuffle  occurred   which  closed
Ix)s Angeles, Cal., Feb. 20.- -Orange
and lemon growers of the citrus fruit
region about ]<os Angeles, who suffered severely in the freeze of January, 1913, sustained another hard blow-
in the storm which began early Wednesday and continued today. Groves
that were nipped and shriveled by
the frost a year ago, were washed out
today by torrents that rushed down
from the mountains and tore madly
through the valleys, and in many instances homes and other movable
property floated off on the crest of the
swirling currents  with the trees.
Summarized, the flood situation
about Los Angeles tonight was as follows: Pomona, centre of a large fruit

Gruesome Work.
The bandit who committed the triple
murder must have held his gun at
least within six Inches of hs vlctms
to make sure of his aim as the bodies
ol all three bore the marks of powder
burns. One was shot through the
centre of the forehead, the second in
the throat and the third in the heart.
Death in each case was Instantaneous.
As soon as their gruesome work was
over and the robber on the floor had
a ���chance to regain his feet, the pair
retreated down the car. the man with
the gun waving it from side to side as
he walked along the aisle, while he
continued to repeat, "Keep your hand*
up. keep your hands up. or I'll shoot
again." So terror stricken were the
passengers that hardly a muscle moved as the train robbers and murderers
made   sure  of  their  getaway.

This was due directly to the adoption

farmers will want help all the year

able to obtain yearly jobs. So that

Ottawa, Feb. 20���The Evening Citizen says:
"The most discussed theme In parliamentary circles just at present is
the Canadian Northern railway and
its annual pilgrimage to Ottawa in
search of financial assistance. For
the moment, at least it overshadows
the Transcontinental question. There
has been much speculation and rumor
and numerous declarations and denials
"The real facts are that the Canadian Northern has not made any formal application for government as-
slstanco but that the head of It and
several high-ups 111 the road have been
In Ottawa, supposedly feeling their
way antl ascertaining what are the
prospects for securing money. If the
outlook ia finally favorable, then In
due course, au application will be
made.
"What ls sought, Is, It is understood,
a loan of which the minimum is $25,-
000,000. What are the prospects of
getting  it  is  another  question.
"There Is no question that, having
regard to the measure of assistance
granted to the Canadian Northern interests heretofore, much strong opposition will be expressed and so far as
concerns the Conservative members
who are protesting, It may be added
that their present efforts are not di
rected against Mackenzie and Mann
hut rather against the government be
ing induced to favor any such a pro
position. Their contention Is that It
would not be a wise step politically
and a number of them were outspoken.

CONVICT GOWLAND
IN RECORD TIME
Jury Reaches Verdict After
Four Minutes' Deliberation.
Unless there is a material change of
front In the stand said to have been
taken by the representatives of the
miners under indictment for having
taken part in the strike troubles on
Vancouver island last summer, it is
not likely anything will happen to cut
short the special court of assize now
sitting in this city and which for three
months has been grinding out convictions against many of the men involved.
Negotiations were actively carried
on up till a few days ago tending to
some arrangement whereby the ends
of justice could be met and at the
same time the expensive court session
now being held could be shortened,
but so far there have been no results
and it is stated that the cause of the
blockade is Joe Angelo, Italian organizer for the United Mine Workers of
America, who was convicted several
weeks ago on six counts of rioting,
ritous destruction of property, etc. at
Extension, and is now awaiting sentence   in  the  provincial  Jail  here.
Angelo occupies a high position in
the ranks of the United Mite Workers, and the heads of that organiza-'
tion are loth to Bee one of their most,
active workers go to jail, hence the
proviso which, it ts said, they have
attached to all negotiations that have
been conducted that Angelo be given
his release. It is affirmed that the officials of the American union would
be willing to sacrifice tbe rank and
file of the Vancouver island locals,
the miners who went out on strike in
response to the order of the U. M.
W. ot A., If Angelo could be treed.
Reports which have floated out from
| the conferences, which have been held
| between representative* of the crown
and the union, state that the heads
of the U. M. W. of A. would be witting to let those men already convicted and held In jail tor sentence, together with the large number still to
be tried, take their medicine if. by
so doing, the Italian international organizer could be saved from prison.
It is understood, however, that to
all negotiations for Angelo's release
the crown has turned a deaf ear,
even to the concession of the union
that, if nothing else could be done, he
might  be  deported.
Nothing doing along* the Angelo*
line, is practically the ultimatum of
the crown, by whom he is held to be
one of the main figures and most actio participants in the strike troubles
on Vancouver island last summer,
which culminated in damage to thousands of dollars' worth of property
at Extension. Angelo, it Is intimated by the crown, has been tried and
convicted on six charges, including
the most serious crime in the calendar next to murder. He Is now awaiting his fale at the hands of the trial
judge and he must face that fate
whatever it may be.
W. O. McQuarrie was elected president, J. O. Robson vice-president and
C. H. Stuart Wade secretary-treasurer at the annual meeting of. the board
of trade last evening, at /which the
work done during the past year was
reviewed and the program for the
present year partially outlined in the
interesting reports which were submitted by chairmen of the different
committees.
Each, report as read waa discussed
thoroughly and while the finances of
the board were not in as good condition as some of the members would
have liked, the amount of work accomplished and the bright outlook for
the future more than made up for
the temporary  depression.
The Fraser river and Its importance to New Westminster and the
province in general, the fishing and

other matters In which the board la
vitally interested were all dealt with
and some Interesting and valuable information was given. Not leas interesting were the reports on commerce

The jury yesterday in the trial of
Richard Gowlaud created a record
for the special court of assize sitting
on the Vancouver island strike cases,
when it returned to the court room
four minutes after retiring, with a
verdict of guilty on both counts of
the indictment against the prisoner,

assembly.
The  trial  itself  was  a   short   one,
commencing  at   10:30  o'clock  In  the

of guilty at ten minutes past three In

The case agaist Gowlund opened up

before during the special assize, it
also was the first case heard at the

Riot number two, of participating in
which the accused was declared guilty, started in Nanaimo about half past
ten o'clock on the night of the llth
of August last, when a fireboss in
the Nanaimo mine, who had been
twenty-six years in the employ of the
mine owners, left his home to go to
his usual work on the night shift.

ATTEMPTING TO SOLVE
KILFOIL MURDER MYSTERY
I.as Angeles, Cal., Feb. 20.-���The inquiry into the Kllfoil death ttnyBl*

I.os Angeles to San Diego.
J. P. Hogan, deputy district attorney, and l.ouls Dunl, county detective,
went to San Die^o to question Gillian Palmer, the 14-year-old school
girl, upon whom Philll A. Kllfoil, realty operator, was alleged to have committed a statutory offense.
It was believed by the officers that
the girl could give valuable information concerning the death by poison
January 2 last of Miss Mary Kllfoil,
elderly invalid sister of the man under arrest.
The girl, who was said to have been
taken to San Die-go at Kilfoll's request, was a guest at the Kilfoil home
at the time of Mary's death and was

Quebec. Feb. 20.���A spectacular fire
broke out at noon today in the Grey
Nuns' convent which occupies the
whole block bound by Glacis,
Richelieu, St. Eustacbe and Oliver
streets, doing considerable damage to
the convent, aud wrecking the church
which is attached to the institution.
The fire alarm was turned in
at 12:20 p.m., and was followed a
few moments later by a second and
third, which brought out the entire
department.
The fire started in the kitchen. A
number of inmates were cleaning
clothes with benzine, when somebody
Ut a match, the fumes taking fire and
the blaze started. The flames spread
rapidly to the roof of the church, by
means of the elevator shaft, and in a
few minutes, the whole church was a
mass of flames.
For the first two hours of the fire's
progress the flames were mostly on
the inside of the building, but shortly after 2 o'clock the lire broke out
on the top of the belfry of the church
and In a few minutes flames over 30
leet high was shooting up.
As soon as the fire broke out, the
inmates of the institute were taken
out of the building and housed In
places of safety nearby and the employees of the building devoted their
attention to the saving of whatever
property they could lay hands on.
It was nearly 2 o'clock, however,
when Constable Gautliier and a man
'thought they saw somebody moving
round In one of the rooms on the
fifth floor. They fought their way up
through the smoke aud found an aged
sister who was a cripple and had apparently been unable to get out with,
the others. The two men succeeded
ln getting her down stairs to safety.
Among the articles saved were many
valuable paintings. Many others,
however, were In the chapel of the
Institution and were a complete loss
within a few minutes of the starting
of the fire.
This is the third time the chapel
has been destroyed by fire. The first
fire was nearly half a century ago
and at the time was partly used when
the parliament buildings were burned. The second lire was about 35
years ago.
The church has just been recently
redecorated and contained som? beautiful palntlngB valued at many thousands of dollars, which will be a total

THE DIVORCE LAW.
It has been suggested that the other provinces of the
Dominion be given the same powers as those allowed British Columbia and the maritime members of the federation
in the matter of divorces, making it possible to secure an
annulment of marriage in all the provincial courts. While
it perhaps cannot be truthfully said that the possession
of such power by B.C. and the provinces on the Atlantic
seaboard has tended to make divorce proceedings more
popular there than elsewhere in Canada, where an appeal
to parliament has been necessary to dissolve marriage,
still any change in the laws as they stand should receive
careful consideration before being put into effect, and
anything that would tend to give the public the impres-
siona that the obligations taken at the altar are becoming
less binding and are entitled to less reverence should be
studiously avoided.
The lowering of the moral tone in Canada would be as
grave a national calamity as her complete defeat in the
field of battle by a hostile foreign power, if such a thing
could be imagined; and the writing on our statutes of any
clause that could be construed as loosening the legal bonds
of matrimony in the Dominion would be bound to lower
that moral tone. Therefore, it is imperative in dealing
with the divorce laws to see that every safeguard is provided for the protection of the Canadian home.
There is no valid reason why British Columbia and
the maritime provinces should be permitted to handle
their own divorce cases while similar liberty of action is
withheld from the other provinces, but if the granting of
that permission to all the members of the federation would
reduce by the smallest percentage respect for the state of
matrimony in the Dominion of Canada, then such permission should be withheld. Going fuarther: If respect for
the state of matrimony would be strengthened by withdrawing from British Columbia and the maritime provinces their present liberties in the matter of divorces,
then those liberties should be withdrawn.
The decision to enter the married state is, or should be,
the most important combined civil and religious obligation a man or woman takes. If it is not so regarded the
contracting parties do not understand or are wilfully
shutting their eyes to their responsibilities.
The man or woman who signs a marriage contract in
the shadow of a church altar, fully understanding and subscribing to the conditions, has much to explain away, if,
later, he or she enters proceedings for divorce and any
change in the law that would make that explaining any
easier than it is today should be kept off our statute books
as a menace to the honor of the homes of Canada.
Portland has a mayor to recall and Seattle has one to

London, Feb. 20.���The season with
its accustomed blooming of new fashions is not yet with us, but a walk
down Bond street even now gives the
mere male much food for thought.
There was seen a day of two ago a
radiant creature in a Bakat three-
decker dress and a tall velvet hat like
a bishop's mitre. Her triple-tiered
skirt of purple silk was draped and
festooned in an intricate way. Her
shots hud purple heels.
Never before have such fantastic
conceptions In woman's dress been
seen in public. The influence of the
Russian ballet and the futurist imagination have produced a frenzy of
color and designs. Spring will reveal
the true etxent of the "new art" fever that began as a mild disease at
Covent Harden, crossed the footlights
before the danger was realized, and
is now epidemic in what some people
call the world of fashion.
The public Is gradually becoming resigned to the futurist taint. A young
woman tripped down Piccadilly wearing what can only be described as a
man's top hat turned up side down,
built in dark blue velvet, with a band
of red. white and blue silk twisted
round the lower half of the structure.
Save for a taxicab chauffeur, who
looked at her mournfully, then ostentatiously covered his eyes, she went
her way unnoticed,
A little pale sunshine wandered into
Bond street early this week, under
the mistaken impression that spring
had arrived. It was hopelessly worsted in the competition with Rakst-
I'oiret disciples, who marched under
prisniatic-hued headgear and so retired early fro mthe gray.
A fifteen-minute stroll through
Bond street yielded the following list
Fur Anklets  in   Full  View.
A middle-aged woman, wearing a
brown tailor-made costume in three
sections, the two upper ones exactly
like two morning coats for men, the
shortest reaching hardly to her waist.
A tall young woman, with a cone-
shaped hat of black velvet at least a
foot high tilted rakishlng on the back
of her head.
A woman who wore a purple velvet
hat shaped like a Christmas pudding,
with a black aigrette, a white aigrette
and a red aigrette impaled at different angles.
An elderly woman in a black velvet
dress embroidered in silver, carrying
a Pekinese dog that suffered from a,n
enormous tartan how.
A woman with lur anklets who did
not. mind showing them.
There are pagoda dresses in so
many layers that the wearers look
like so many jigsaw puzzles that have
been solved successfully.
Outside the futurist radius there
might have been seen a happy, somewhat mouldy person, whose frayed
trousers and flapping fragments of
boots were tied with string. He wore
a couple of waistcoats and the remains of a lounge coat under a frock
coat of mature age; his battered billy-
cr>ck hat wbr jammed over one ear.
He, too, was in the fashion.

Suffered Tortures With His Kidneys
Until He Tried Gin Pills
Vou might think that Mr. Baker needed a surgeon more than GIN FILLS.
But there were no bones broken. His back was strained, which was harder to
core because nothing seemed to do any good. It is the same with a sprained
ankle and broken leg. You can set the fracture and it will be well in six weeks
���but the sprain may take months to get well.
_ However, Ur. Baker found the quick way to get relief from the pain���here
are his own words.
Auwsvru.B, Ont.
"I have been a great sufferer from Kidney
Trouble from an injury to my back caused by falling
from a hay loft about six years ago. This
left my kidneys weak, so that every cold I
got would settle in my kidneys and cause
intense suffering. I was advised to try GIN
PILLS. I found, to my surprise, after taking
two boxes, that the pains were relieved and I
begsn to feel better. I am still taking GIN
PILLS and feel sure I will be completely
cured. I recommend GIN PILLS to all who
suffer from any Kidney Trouble". C. BAKER.
You see, the fall had strained the
kidneys and they were affected by the
slightest chill. GIN PILLS immedi-
ately strengthened the kidneys���
soothed any irritation and thus enabled
the kidneys to overcome the effects of the fall.
If you are having pain in the back���or trouble
with kidneys or bladder through accident or overwork���do just as Mr. Baker did���take GIN PILLS.
They will help you���cure you���or we will promptly refund your money. Buy
six boxes at your dealer's. If, after taking them, you feel that Gin Pills have
not helped you, return the empty boxes and get your money. We will take your
word for it 50c. a box, 6 for $2.50. Sample box sent free if you write National

HARD TIMES! A prominent advertiser who spends a fortune every
year in publicity has established a
significant rule. Whenever he notices a slowing up of business he increases
his advertising. This is the reason: "When
business is booming it is unnecessary to
tight for it���it comes of itself; but when
business is slow I insist on having my share
of it, and the easiest way to get it is by calling attention to my goods. I do not wait for
hard times. I scent them in the distance,
and before anybody else gets busy I make
my contracts for advertising on a big scale
and get my orders in before my competitors
know what I am doing." The logic and com-

tant actions of this board brings me
to a point when I must allude to the
great loss we have suffered in the
death of our elected president for
1918, Mr. John A. Lee���whose position
I have had the honor to fill for his
remaining term of office. I will not
here dilate upon his many good qualities which were so well known to you,
suffice it to say that his self-effacement ln the interests of the community was one which will be remembered by us all for many years.
Matters Dealt With.
During the year the question of the
better lighting of the Fraser river
was vigorously taken up with satisfactory results. The thanks of this
board are due to J. D. Taylor, M.P. and
C. C. Worsfold, Dominion government engineer, who lent us invaluable assistance.
A special committee was appointed
to enquire into the excessive fire insurance rates prevailing, with the result that an all-round reduction was
obtained. Whilst this reduction in
rateB was not very large, being ap'
proximately 10 per cent throughout,
we hope that before very long they
will be brought still lower. The new-
council of this board should keep this
important matter before them, as an
aggressive campaign is bound to be
productive of beneficial results.
in July. 1913, by the efforts of a
small committee of citizens, funds
were subscribed to defray the expenses
of an entertainment to the captain
antl officers of H.M.S. New Zealand,
which was at that time touring the
British overseas dominions. The entertainment took the form of a visit
to the asylum and colony farm by motors, thence to the Fraser Mills, where
after inspection the party proceeded
by steamer down the river, visiting
one of the canneries. A large number of the officers were present, including the captain and commander,

-FACT HUNGER
As children, our first demand is for nourishment; our
second for fads.
All through life we go about
searching for information.
We make a new acquaintance;
but before we will accept him
as a friend or invite him to our
home we ask for fads about him.
We visit a foreign land; and from
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ the moment we slep across its
border we are asking questions���
searching for fads.
We are asked to try a new food produd; isn't it initindive
with us to ask at once:
"Who makes this new article ?"
" How is it made ? what goes into it ?"
" Is it worth the price charged for it ?"
Facts���we are simply hungry for them.
Strange, isn't it, that we should so often have to search for
them ? Odd, that some manufadurers slill withhold the fads
about their produd. Not always because they are fads to be
ashamed of���for there are many worthy articles yet unadvertised.
But it will not be so much longer. The fad-hunger of the
human race is becoming keener and keener. The more fads
we get, the keener our relish for more of them.
Soon it will be impossible to sell a man or a woman anything
until everything has been told about the goods that can be told
through Advertising.
The public has discovered that Advertising tells much-needed facts���
that, in fact, Advertising satisfies fact-hunger. ,
If you are doing a local business talk over your advertising problem! with the
Advertising Department of this newspaper.
If you are doing a provincial or national business it would be well for you
to hive the counsel and assistance o( a good advertising sgency.   A list oi these will be

IT IS SERVICE THAT BACKS UP
ADVERTISING HS SUCCESSEULLY
In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise.   A man who sup-
*
plies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing-
nuifiber of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
large enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
experience.
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store." "We pay the clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.        .

EGGS SLUMP UNDER
HEAVY IMPORTS
Price   Falls Off  Five    Cents    When
Washington Supplies Arrive at
New Westminster Market.
'With the wholesale market loaded
with imported fresh eggs from across
the boundary and new laid eggs quoted US cents a dozen in Seattle, eggs
on the city market yesterday slumped five cents both wholesale and retail. At the close the wholesale price
was just 5 cents ahead of the Seattle
quotation and not on a very firm basis
at that. The principal reason for tho
slump is given as the heavy importations of foreign eggs, although the
mild winter has stimulated the production locally and has helped weaken
the price.
The decline in hen fruit is not unusual at this time, however, and although quotations may sink a little
lower ranchers have the assurance
that the market will strengthen again
as the season advances. Although
the demand was not very strong,
those who had eggs for sale yesterday managed to get rid of their supplies at not lower than quoted prices.
The poultry supplies were up to the
average yesterday and consistent buying maintained the prices ruling for
the previous week. Vegetables were
well represented and found ready purchasers at ruling quotations. There
was also a good showing of meat,
principaly pork and veal, all of which
found a ready market.
The auction sale brought good returns. A number of grade cows sold
at  prices  ranging from $45 to $65.

Market   Opens   Quiet   and   Early  Advances Are Lost Before
Close.
New Vork. Keb. 20.���The market
opened quiet and in the man but little changed from last night's close.
During the entire session apathy prevailed and commission business was
reduced io the smallest proportions of
any day for some time past. What
movements there were, were made in
the specialties.
Sharp advances occurrc d in General
Electric, Westingbouse, Bethlehem
Steel, General Motor and Ice in the
early dealings, but in the two latter
advances were afterwards lost. Ice declined on the semi-official announcement that no dividend was contemplated at the present time. The Rock
Island stocks were weak from the
start, both making new levels. Central Leather declined on the publlsh-
.ng of the annual report, which reported considerable falling off in earnings.
Just before the close it was said that
application for the reorganization of
Wabash has been arrived at and it
was said an assessment would be
made of $20 per share on both common and preferred.
Sales,  159,000.

NEW8PAPER COMMENT.
Montreal Star���The street invariably scents some dicker or deal to account for the strength in a given
stock. The appreciation in Bell Telephone naturally suggested that some
tangible reason should be forthcoming. Yesterday and today stock rose
sharply after slow but steady improvement ever since monetary conditions
commenced to improve. In that respect it is no different from other
high grade issues and the dividend
yields seems as yet sufficiently attractive to invite buying by monled
interests.
Christmas���I think it would be policy to fe=el for a reaction in securities that have shown the greatest appreciation. Any eet.bar.ks we may
have should be taken advantage of as
the trend is still toward high prices.

CORViCI GOWLAND
IN RECORD TIME
(Continued from Hage Cr.c.i
Akx Young jir.sterday as being one
of the men who had thrown a stone.
The monotony of choosing a jury
for the trial was relieved somewhat
by several little incidents. The tedium cf jury duty ls evidently beginning to make itself felt on ihe members of the large panel summoned to
attend the special assize, or at least
on the few who are chosen to sit
and are nc* stood aside by the crown
or challenged by the defence. Several of these who have been "caught"
on two or three cases hand-running,
called the attention of the court to
lhe facts yesterday and were allowed
to stand down without being drafted
among ihe twelve good and true on
the Gowland case.
One member of the panel had the
distinction of being both stood aside
by the crown and challenged by the
defence and was the envy of his less
fortnuate companions. Another, who
has been consistently challenged by
the defence, did not wait for the challenge yesterday, but started for the
door us soon as his name was called.
Then, when the jury was almost complete, Court Registrar Cambridge slipped a cog and tried to give a juror
the oath of a witness instead of the
obligation lo "well and truly deliverance make between our sovereign
lord the king and the prisoner at
the bar."
Altogether,    yesterday's    case   presented   a   few .features  that   relieved
the  hum-drum  of  special  assize  pro-
���  feedings.
The prisoner, who, after his conviction, was, as usual, remanded for
sentence, was defended by Israel Rub-
inowitz, who for a second time this
week bame in for a compliment at
the hands of the presiding judge, the
honorable Justice Morrison.
His lordship had commented very
strongly on the appearance and conduct of four of the witnesses for the
defence, one of whom he described as
actually "profane," He intimated to
the jury that the testimony of these
witnesses was of little value, and in
doing so said. "Mr. Rubinowitz has
made the very best of the case as it ,
stands."  ��� ' , '.'���

ff MARRIAGE BY FORCED
Greenland Youths Have a Rough Way

ies committee. .Mr. Monk was complimented on his work and the statements proved of the utmost importance.
The rum in  1913  exceeded that of
four years ago, stated  Mr.  Monk, although the sockeye pack would have
j been much larger had not the fishermen gone on strike when the run com
! meuced.    The catcli of spring salmon
I was  the  poorest  on   record   and  the
' fall fish were below average, but the
pack of sockeyes  made  up this defi
| ciency.    There were 684,596 cases of
sockeyes  packed  in  1913,  as against
567,203 in 11)09.
Japanese Question.
I.ast year, said Mr. Monk, when discussing the  Japanese  situation, over
$2,000,000 was paid out. in wages in
about five months by the canneries.
| with about another $500,000 by fresh
j fish dealers and cold storage companies.   Of the fishermen on the Fraser,
I two-thirds  are   Japanese,   and   there-
j fore of this huge sum two-thirds went
to  Asiatics.    Further,   the  Japanese
dominate the herring and cod  industries and every year also catch large
amounts of dog salmo?,  wnich  they
salt and send to Japan in their own
vessels.    Thus the province, with the
exception of a  small  license fee,  de
rived   no   bent fit   from   these   industries.   This Mi'. Monk deplored.
The American  Peril.
Mr. Monk also broached the subject
[of the treaty with the United States,
which  so  far  that   country   has  not
kept.    He pointed out that the Americans with traps secured three times
as many of the fish headed  for the
Fraser  than   British   Columbians   secured for themselves. He pointed out
the  need therefore, of the week-end
holiday.
Lumber and Mills.
J. G. Robson stated that there were
at present 270 mills in the province,
with a daily capacity of 5,500,000 feet,
employing 16,500 men, including logging camps, and 100 shingle mills with
a daily capacity of ^.ueio.OOO shingles
and employing 5,500 men. These figures, however, are the maximum capacity of the province, but for the
year 1913 only about 50 per cent, was
in operation and in an ordinary year
only about 80 per cent, was in operation.
W. L. Darling read the re;:ort of
