DOMINION ESTIMATES ANNOUNCED
BRITISH COLUMBIA WELL TREATED
Ml
The feature of yesterday afternoon's
session of the city council waa the
speech of Hla Worship Mayor Gray,
In which he dealt with the program of
development for the ensuing year.
Practically all undertakings Initiated
by the 1812 council but which still remain unfinished were mentioned in
the address and several Important recommendations were made on other
matters vitally affecting the city's Interests.
In reference to the harbor scheme
the mayor stated that the work of the
council had been advanced to the
stage when actual commencement of
operations would soon take place.
The question of compensation of
lessees of the old waterfront line wae
still unsettled and his worship advised
that something be done Immediately
In this regard. If a mutual agreement
on the leases could not be arrived at
he suggested arbitration. In this connection It was stated that several
transportation companies had signified their willingness to
with the city.
The mayor also referred to the proposed municipal gas plant, Canadian
Northern railway, street Improvements. Sapperton sewer scheme, the
problems of Queensborough, fire protection, light and* water extension,
publicity arrangements, the K. A. A 1.
society.   Isolation   hospital,   Victorian

It be submitted to council
provaL
The question of tbe site ls not yet
settled; hut I see no reason why we
cannot assume that no difficulty will
be experienced by the city In this matter. In this connection I would suggest that every effort possibly be
made to secure the Indian rights (If
such exist) ln the reserves, including
Poplar Island, from the Dominion government As you are aware we have
the provincial reversionary rights.
It would be disastrous to the city in
connection with the harbor plans to
have these properties tn the hands
of private parties, as wo need every
foot of land for Industrial and harbor
development.
Canadian Northern Railway.
I expect, at a very early date, that
tt will be Imperative for the council
to take up many questions in connection with the Canadian Northern railway company and the city As soon
an necessary arrangements can be
co-operate j mfuje tne Bgreement arrived at by the
council will be submitted to the ratepayers for their approval.
Street Improvements.
I would strongly advise that before
commencing any further permanent
improvements of our streets that the
existing contracts be completed as
rapidly as possible, and in future tbat
Order of Nurses, employment of rate- j the sale of bonds be completed, or fl-
payers, extension of the city limits. naneial arrangements be made by the

finance committee have a census ta- tractB or commencing operations for
"ken of the city ss soon as possible.       local improvements

Unless the plans as arranged at
present sre altered there will be quite
ao exodus of New Westminster's
prominent citizens. this evening, ths
object being . visit to tbe power, that
be at Victoria ln reference to various
matters affecting tha city.
A delegation of three from the city
council, Aldermen Kellington and
Henley and Mayor Gray, will go to
Victoria with the request for early
legialatton on the proposed sew.r
agreement between New We.tmln.ter
and Burnaby, and to lay before tho
government th* necessity for greater
accommodation In the land registry
offtce and court bouse of the city, and
also to request a change ln the Municipal Clauses Act that a city can borrow on Ita publlo utilities.
This latter matter waa brought up
by Alderman Dodd laat evening who
thought It only right that any city
owning public utilities such as water
and power plants should be permitted
to borrow on them.
Mr. John A. Lee and Mr. J. R.
Agar will represent tbe Progre..tv.
Association on th. matter of the
necesMty -for greater T*ommodaUon
In tbe land registry office, while Mr.
C. H. Stuart Wad. will travel on tht

Gulf and  wa3 crowned  king of thc
carnival.
His arrival ls the climax, the spectacular finale, of a month of joy. Pandemonium always greets his arrival,
and the mayor gives hira the keys of
lhe city hall.
The choice of a Mardi liraa monarch is simple anil far from democratic. The honor goes to the citizen of
the citizen of the city who writes the
largest cheque to be applied toward
paying the expense of the festivities.
���n likewise his queen consort is the
young woman whose proud papa make
the largest contribution to the. fund.
Strange sights will great the eyes of
the gtieBt of the Crescent City today.
Everybody���except a few who have
dined t-o well the previous night-
is on the streets. Staid business
men, grave and portly of aspect, don
the garb of nymphs and houris, or attire themselves to represent the gods
and goddesses ot mythology.
The membership of all the carnival
organizations ls kept a deep, dark secret. On this day and date a New
Orleans man may come and go without question from employer or wife.
While the populace may enjoy the pageants and other ' pnblic affairs, the
balls'and social assemblage, are only
tor Invited guests, and���It is said���no
amount of money will procure admission. That Is as may be. Those Invited do not know v. horn to tbank,
but one is certain���that If an Invited
guests fails twice to heed the summons, he will never again be- asked.
The New Orleans carnival is a so
cial affair, rather than a strictly business proposition, although naturally,
a large number of business men pro
fit largely from the visitors, and contribute to the fund largely because ot
profits to come. Yet no merchant or
manufacturer 13 permitted to advertise his wares on any of the floats
nnd in this respect New Orleans ha.*^
followed the example of the cities of
southern Europe,.
"The city that care forgot." the
Louisiana metropolis has been called
and today every outward aspect will
justify the description. Rut as for
tomorrow, the beginning of Lent, the
SEEKING AFTER LIGHT.
There is today a bill before the house in Victoria for
iiicreasing the scope of the Provincial museum by empowering the financing of that institution from time to time
in its quest into the natural history and anthropology of
Britiah Columbia.
Anthropology is the science of man and results may
therefore in due course be looked for which will throw
light upon the men and women who inhabited this part
��f the earth in the far off ages.
We welcome this step on the part of the government
as_ an indication that some attention is being paid to the
scientific side of our natural surorundings. British Columbia is a happy hunting ground for research in almost
any branch of human knowledge, and we are further glad
to note that the information gained in Victoria is to be
���diffused as widely as possible.
Most of us are too much occupied with the rough and
ready work that comes to our hands to know much about
zoology, botany, and the like. We live in an era of building actual things���bridges, roads railways, harbors���and
are inclined to look at most things from a material point
of view. In dollars and cents the researches into the natural history and anthropology of the province will not
bring much increase in our bank balances, but it will probably bring the attention of learned societies in the old
world to the province, will give those that come after much
useful material which those who preceded us were too
busy to gather for our edification.
Work alone is a dull game. Today not one British Columbian in a thousand knows the names of the plants, the
birds, the insects of his own country���a thing which even
an uneducated Kaffir has at his tongue's tip.   What weio ,, ���-���,-.- ,..-, , ,,..

Three ytars ago France had its
great railway strike, which was called
by Premier Brand a civil war brought
on by the Socialists. The government
ordered the strikers to do mjlitary
duty, which they had to do or be guilty

strike settled. The governmeut has
been lenient with the strlkera since,

COUNT FOOLED THE BEGGARS.
Dressed as   Chauffeur   They   Pasted

' Paris, Feb. 3.���"Hark, hark, the
dogs do bark, the beggars are coming to town," is the beginning of a
nursery ryhme which must have been
written by some one who bad seen
Paris on New Year's Day.
Tbat day is oni of the few on which
beggars are albrwed to ply their trade
without interference by the police, and
as a consequence the blind, the lame
and tbe halt flock Into Pari, from
every quarter to take advantage of the
kindly feeling aroused by the festive
season, and an outstretched hand Is
met with at every ten yards.
It happened this year tbat at a
merry supper table where the new
year���had been duly welcomed, one
guest speaking of the burdens brought
by the first day of the year, such as
visits, presents, tips, etc., mentioned
the swarms of beggars in the streets.
"Bah!" said the Count de Toulouse
Lautree. "lt te a day of generosity
when one can be free wltb one's
money."
"I'll bet you $100," said another,
"that you won't give a louls ($4) to
every beggar that asks you today."
"Done," said the count.
His friend called round for him later
in the day to see that the wager was
obserserved. They s/ere received by
a chauffeur in a worn blue overall wbo
bore a strong likeness to the count,
who. In fact, was the count. He had
borrowed one of hiB chauffeur's working costumes and tn that disguise won
his bet easily, as not a hand was
stretched out to him.

How Fallleres Has Led
France Towards
eltv*��*f-
wsrltj
London, Feb. 3.���England started
the new year with a strike of the taxi-
cab drivers, and if the threats of the
labor leaders are only partially carried out, the present year will prove
an even more serious .ne industrially
than that which preceded lt, and 1912
broke all records. Despite this the
trade of the country likewise broke all
records.
While the taxi strike causes much
inconvenience in the city, lt Is the dle-
putea In the Industrial districts that
nre creating the greatest uneasiness.
The coal miners of Wales, who were
the hardest fighters. In the last coal
strike, are again restless, being dissatisfied with the award of the commissioner appointed under the act
passed by parliament to end the last
strike, fixing the minimum wage.
A general conference Uto be held to
deal with the matter.' It' is .certain
that the owners will fight against any
increase in tbe cost of production, as
they have already lost to America ton-
tracts for the Italian Government and
Egyptian State Railways because ot
the high price at which they made
tenders.
The Miners.
There are, however, two points
against a general strike of the miners.
The last struggle almost 'exhausted
the funds of the unions, and under an
old agreement the miners' wages are
increased as the contract price of coal
is raised. As the price has gone up,
the miners, in tbe North of England,
at any rate, would porbably be against
another contest with tbe owners.
Seamen and Firemen.
Another serious trouble threatened
ie tbat arising from the agitation of
the seamen and firemen tor a syste-
matizatlon of the rates and wages and
conditions of service on board ship.
Tbe men under tbe leadership of
Havelock Wilson, have been agitating for this for years. They have asked time and time again that a conciliation board be appointed by the owners and unions to standardize the
wages and conditions, but the bulk ot
the owners have refused.
In the hope ot winning their point
the men went on strike ln 1911 and demanded a big increase ln wages. The.
big companies granted the wages, and
the smaller firms got their men back
at the old wages and conditions, It Is
for these latter that the union is now
fighting.
Mr. Wilson has announced tbat when
the union has exhausted all means of
diplomacy the executive would fix a
date when the seamen should take a
vacation." "In our > union." he explained, "the word 'strike' is a very
vulgar and nasty word to use."
The Cotton  Trade.
More, trouble, too, Is brewing ln the
contolled by the Employers' Federation of Spinners have given notice of
withdrawal from the BrooklandB agreement, which bas been in operation for
some years, and which covered all
disputes tn the cotton spinning trade

The trouble sems to have been due
to a combination of card-indexing,

kaa studied condition, here that on
account, of the growth of the differ
sent sections of the city we must make
provision to Bupply these residences
with both these nece-saariea.
Publicity Arrangements.
I would recommend that council
continue along the lines which this department has followed for the past two
years in carrying out its work; but
the committee should endeavor to see
that the work ot our own publicity
commissioner does not conflict with
that of any other organization in the
���city.
1 have been informed that the Pro-
���gri-rrivc association intends to have a
committee wait upon the council to
ask for n grant. To this matter I
trust the council will give its very best
consideration.
Evtry precaution should be taken
t;y our own publicity commissioner
ami ly all other organisations receiving financial support from tho city to
ace that people are not induced by
the promise of employment to locate
liere. We should endeavor by publicity work to so advertise the facta
of the great advantage, to    be    had
traduced, read three times, and passed. The bylaw is for the purpose of
authorizing the city to raise the sum
of $-i71,136 for current expenses. This
amount is raised annually on the assessment taxes.
lteporting for the finance committee Alderman Kellington stated that
the following additional amounts of
Insurance had been placed buildings
owned by the municipality which
hitherto had heen insured: Agricultural hall, Queen's Park, $6000; library, $3500; market and creamery,
$4000; waterworks storehouse, $500;
city hall, $2000; No. 1 fire hall, $1600;
No. .1 fire hall, f.500. The Insurance
on the following buildings was reduced on account of their previously
being underwritten beyond their value,
Board of works stable, $1000; garbage hoppers,  $1000.
The insurance, Alderman Kellington stated had been equitably divided among those companies holding
agencies ln the city which had hitherto carried little or practically no civic
insurance, the aim of the finance committee being to give all firms an equal
share of the city's business.
Will  Pay All  Accounts.
On the recommendation of the finance committee the council decided
to pay all accounts due on the maps
recently produced which were found
to contain certain errors, and to instruct Cleveland and Cameron, civil
engineers, who did the work, to prepare an entirely new draft of the maps.
The Powers Contracting Company
wrote stating that they could not see
their way clear to accept the sum of
$2500 offered by the council in settlement in full for all claims for extras,
bonus and other possible claims In
connection with the construction of
the Arena building, Queen's Park,
and wished the mutter of their account referred to arbitration. They
also notified the council that they
had appointed Mr. A. .Williams of
Vancouver as their arbitrator. The
council has already appointed an ar
bitrator to act on behalf ot the city
and it Is possible that arbitration proceedings will be started Bhortly. The
members of the buildtng committee
and the city solicitor were instructed
to make all the necessary arrangements for a meetng.

BURNABY COUNCIL
SHOWS CONFIDENCE
In It. Chief of Police���Rscommenda-
tlcns All  Accepted  with  Little
Discussion.
Edmonds, Feb. 3.���Further confidence in the work of Chief of Police
Parkinson of the Burnaby force wan
shown at today's council meeting
when several recommendations of tne
chief were adopted with little comment except congratulatory to the
present force.
The adoption of the chief's suggestion will mean that the force will be
Increased by three dismounted constables, two of whom will be stationed
it Edmonds, while another will take
up his quarters at North Burnaby.
In toe latter connection the council
went on record as favoring the establishment of a sub police station at
-Vancouver Heights where the population is Increasing by leaps and
bound**. It haa been found that prisoners', arrested In the evening have
had to be held over night owing to
the poor car connections with E(J
monde.
The new huilding will be of sub
stantial character housing the two
constables, together with cell accommodation and stables for two horses,
lt has also been suggested that an
office for the collection of taxes and
water rates be established, while lt t*
possible that a public hall will be
attached to the premises.
Every' constable will receive an additional $5 per month, while the
salary of Sergeant Lyne will be Increased. Constable Doidge. who has
been stationed at North Burnaby for
the nast few months, will be raised
to the position of senior constable
together with an increase of pay.
The police telephone system install
ed last year will receive attention
from Wiring Inspector Burns, several
additional stations having been or
dered placed on the system Including
In the hemes of the constables.
At dances, fairs or race track meets
where rollce protection is asked for
the police authorities will hereaftei
charge a sum of not more than $3 a
night.
All constables will be allowed four
teen days leave of absence each year
subject to the discretion of the chief
of police.

Washington, Feb. 3.���Direct taxes
upon the Incomes of the citizens of
the United States, whether derived
from Idle capital or from the conduct
of business were made possible today
by the ratification of the sixteenth
amendment to the federal constitution.
Delaware, Wyoming and New Mexico
endorsing the Income tax amendment
through their respective legislatures,
completed the list of 38 states that
have approved it, two more than the
three-fourth, necessary for its final
adoption.
Leaders in congress predicted tonight that through this authorization
the law which will be passed to levy
the tax upon American incomes will
be Introduced aa soon as the extra
session opens. Its exact term, have
not been decided ujion, but it is believed that it will exempt all incomes
below $3000 or $5000; and will provide a tax of one per cent upon the
majority of personal incomes that
do not run to an excessive figure.
Informal notice of the fiscal adoption of the new amendment was given
to the senate by Senator Brown of
Nebraska, who Introduced the discussion In 1908 upon which the proposal
of an /.come tax was submitted to
the states. The drafting of the bill
to put the tax into effect, it is understood will fall to the lot of Representative Cordell HM of Tennessee, a
member of the house ways and means
onimittee who drew the excise tax
bill proposed last year by the Democratic house of representatives, but
which did not become law.
Supplant Corporation Tax.
The Income tax will be designed to
supplant the present corporation tax I
ind will apply to the Incomes of in- j
dividuals, firms and corporations. In
a statement    tonight    Representative
Hill declared that he favored making j
the new tax an integral  part of the j
financial system of the United States. ]
to remain in full force without regard
to the character of the tariff hills that
congress may enact from time to time.
One feature which it is believed will
be incorporated in the hill, will be
provision for "collecting at the source
of Income." ThiB feature now In operation in England would require all
firms to certify the amount paid individuals in salaries and fees and pay
the tax direct to the government. It
is believed this would remove much
complaint that might be made If the
government had to Investigate every
individual citizen's income and would
prevent evasion of the law.
The annual amount that the government may realize under the income
tax is estimated by Democratic lead
rj in congress at approximately $100.
000,000. Thi3 would include the $50,
000,000 collected Under the present
corporation tax.

had been an eyesore botH in the peo-
nlo and to the council and Mr.. Fan
Vel thought It was an opportune time
after the decision cf Mr, Justice Mur-
ihy and the general feeling expreKBed
iiat evening thnt the matter should
ie taken up with the Tl. C. R. It. and
le had no fear that a good substantial
settlement could be made with the
company and that transportation
would be given to the whole municipality as fast as its necda developed.
Ward Four was probably the most Isolated, desolate and forgotten ward tn
Tlurnaby. They needed many things,
but especially transportation.
Councillor   Macdonald   referred   to
the negotiations with the company last
summer. At one time they had the
matter fairly well settled and be was
of the opinion that they had got as
good a deal under the circumstances
as was possible.
Then the people in the south raised
such a storm against a settlement
with the B. C. E. R. that the company
withdrew their offer.
A Great Mistake.
Mr. Macdonald thought lt was n
great mistake then and did so now.
The company was reducing rates as
well as giving transportation to the
people of the north. Mr. Sperling had
said just as soon as the franchise
question waB settled they would build
their extensions. If tbey carried this
matter to the privy council it would
mean another two years' delay and
probably they would get beaten then.
Councillor Mayne thought there was
a misunderstanding that night as to
the attitude of Ward Six. All bis
ward wanted was the best possible
terms they could get and to adjust the
matter la a friendly spirit.
Reeve McGregor, who was received
with applause, said that while personally he was not suffering from lack
of transportation faclliteis he felt that
ln other parts of the municipality It
was the most serious question they
had to deal with. He did not expect
a great deal from the B. C. E. R. At
the time the franchise was granted It
was considered a very fair franchise.
It was almost word for word the same
as that granted by the city of Vancouver.
The reeve alluded to the rejected
bylaw, the entering of the law suit
against the company and Mr. Justict
Murphy's Judgment and said "it meant
a good deal or very little to the B. C.
Railway  company."
Might Reverse Decision.
The privy council might reverse or
confirm Mr. Justice Murphy's decision, said the reeve, but the vital question was whether it was to Burnaby'B
interest to continue this litigation.
Since the referendum something like
���iOOO names had been added to the assessment roll; they at that particular
time had no voice In the instructions
of the people to the council.
There was no question in Mr. Me-
ringer's mind that the franchise must
-tind. The company had borrowed
money on it when it was considered a
'-'ocd franchise. So any concession
that the counci might achieve would
be in the nature of some agreement
attached to the franchise determining
���vhat the B. C. E. R. were prepared to
do.
The reeve advocated the prepara
tion of a definite scheme to submit to
Mr. Sperling. "That could easily be
accomplished as their Ideas wero running much on the same lines," hi
said.
At the present time If they got the
company to reconsider what they
were prepared to grant them last summer and offer these terms again, or
better, they would be Invaluable concessions.
Mr. McGregor thought the company
was   willing   to   enter   upon   friendly I
relations with the municipality. They |
were not in the field to please north j
or South Burnaby but to make money
ind   were   prepared   to   extend   their
lines  wherever they  would  pay  best.'
It will be necessary for the delega- j
tlon to meet the council and agree upon a plan to be submitted, declared
the reeve. .
They need not buoy themselves,- up I
with the Idea that they would achluvo
anything extraordinary, continued the
speaker.' If they could reinstate themselves with the company and arrive
at an arrangement Bimllar to the one
of last summer, that would be thc
most they could expect at the present time.
Changed His Mind.
The chairman said that a year ago
he thought the franchise was invalid
but he knew now that It was a quid
pro quo for the building of the Burnaby lake line. That was embodied ln
a written agreement. Even If Burnaby, through some technicality could
repudiate a fair and equitahle bargain
It could not be countenanced. As a
-naiter of honor tney cwui this fian-
���"���hise to the company and he would
support it and ask all the people he
had anything to do with to support
It. Of the 12 delegates 10 had expressed themselves strongly In favor
of settling with the company, eight
absolutely and unconditionally, and
two conditionally. As to Mr. Fraser
of Ward Six he felt he would change
his view, if he looked closely Into
the matter.
Mr. Patterson suggested a meeting
of the delegates and the council to
formulate proposals to be laid before
the B. C. B, rt., such sb those enumerated by tbe delegates.
Councillor Macdonald Bald that at
one of their committee meetings a
year ago, Mr. Brown, one of the company's directors, said tbey were bound
to protect their Investors on the fran
chlse. They need not, therefore, ex
poet th,. company to make any change
In It.
The extension of roads In the most
urg.n( casus In the municipality and
tho reduction of fares might be con-
Bldered and submitted to the company
as a condition of Burnaby wlthdraw-
tig Its lawsuit, said Mr. Macdonald.
Mr. Fraser said If the subsidiary
arrangement to the franchise embodied a fair and equitable agreement
there would be no more fight In ward
VI.
Mr. Tecs suggested thnt the company be asked to establish trackless
trams and thus Increase their accommodation throe or four times aB much
ns at present.
Mr. Green thought the best lino for
North Burnaby would be one built
along the Pole Lino road.
The resolutions above mentloneC
were theu paSBed and the meeting ad

With two ukatlug sessions each day
and one professional and two amateur
hockey team, using the rink every
day very little time ts allowed for eating purposes to the .mall army of employees at the Queens park arena.
Yesterday afternoon from 2 to 3
o'clock the professionals under tbe
captaincy of Jimmy Gardner went
through their paces on their own Ice
for the flrst time, heretofore they
have been floundering around ou Vancouver ice like maverick, in strange
pasture, but tbat stage has passed and
from now on the orange and black
team will be Johnny on the spot rlgh*
here ln New Westminster where the
railbirds can get a glimpse at thoir
workouts free of charge so long as
they patronize the big games which
will be staged now and then In the
near future commencing on Friday
night of thi. week.
Kvery one of the team were out except Ran McDonald, who has yet to
get over hi. injury sustained some
two weeks ago in Victoria when he
was bumped into the boards and fractured two of his ribs.
With a two days rest since the last
game in Victoria all the bunch uncorked a fast clip and It they only
have their shooting irons hitched on
next Friday night the Millionaires under Frank Patrick will be in the also
ran clags when the lltial gong sounds
Gardner himself Is well pleased
ever the outlook for the first home
game and confided to the News yesterday afternoon that barring any
more accidents to the team the Royals
would show the other two clubs just

McGill put up 96 ln Ave pins, winning
the prize for the same.
All house leaguers are requested to

reading room of the Club on Tuesday
evening at a o'clock.
AMATEURS TEAMS ART
GETTING IN SHAPE
Six   Teams   Entered   In   Westminster
Amateur  Hockey  League  Are
Heady for the Opening.
With every one of the six teams
comprising the Westminster Amateur
Hockey League getting into shape at
the arena, the fans from tho different
districts where the teams hall from
will be yelling their heads off within the next few days when the schedule opens. At the present time each
practice is watched by many of the
players of the opposing teams and individual players are criticized, out oi
hearing of course, his movements,
checking, his uniform and even the
parting In his hair. If a hockey player
has any. is commented upon.

would bring them very close together
again and for this reason it can be expected that both clubs will exert
themselves to the limit
Vancouver, by having a rest of a
week, will have one advantage, and
alao the fact that they will be playing I gloves, and thus save alt the expenses

All differences can be arbitrated except those Involving "national honor,"
and In such cases wby not let presidents and kings fight it out with the

has a hard chance of eking out an

at aitjr game., Jimmy Gardner and
Kddie Oatman will handle the game.

and Mike Gibbons, of St. Paul, Is In
prospect for July I, either at Los
Angeles or San Francisco, it was said
here tonight.
Ernest Potts, of Minneapolis, who is

THE  1912  ROUND-UP  FILMS COMING.
The attraction at the Opera house
on Thursday, Friday and Saturday
of this week will be the first exhibition here of the 1912 round-up, as is
shown In 6000 feet of excellent film..
All the thrills are there. The biggest
cowboy and cowgirl show ever held
in the country Is depicted ln true detail. So realistic are the picture.,
which were taken at Pendleton, that
they are followed with great interest,
it 1. said.
Especially is this true of those who
were so fortunate as to have beea
present at the round-up last September. From the openng day of the
round-up to the last act, everything
wa. "caught" by the picture man. Perfect weather condition, combined to
make the pictures more than usually
fine.
Some of the men and women champion, of other days, a. well aa those
aspiring to thetr trophies, canter in
and .bow in how many varieties of
way. they can .pin the cowboy*. Ian
lat. Horses and cattle are roped with
equal facility by one, two. or three
feet. Before they are out of the arena
a score or so of bucharoo. (the va-
queros ot California or Mexico) gallop madly ln for the cowboy race.
Spurs and chaps are on their lege,
heavy cowboy saddles, equipage only
to be found in tbe west are on the
horses. Perhaps some pony bucks
merrily, upsetting all preconceived
ideas of a race, and the line-up is disturbed time and time again. Eventually they're off, and the little mustangs cover their mile In magnificent
style.
Many of the scenes, while very thrll
ling, are also of humor. The "bull-
dogging" of the cowboys is shown In
all its reckless daring as well as all
the other heroic and spectacular features throughout tbe hour and forty-
five minutes of the films, and the entire 5000 feet of reel is filled with intense excitement. There will be a
special school children's matinee.

Paris. Ileh. 3.���A most extraordinary
and amusing story of thc long and
succeasful career of an arch-swindler
ia told In the newspapers today. It begin, by relating how a Jeweller received a letter asking him to semi a
selection of gold chronometers to a
certain cate for the approval of a
German firm .anxious to have half a
do-sen extra choice specimens of
French skilL
A confidential .clerk was accordingly
entreated wit*..- twenty watchea,
which he submitted to the pretended
customers, who, however, after choosing six, wanted to know how much tt
would coat to Have Initials and a
count's crown engraved on the cases.
They begged the employee to telephone to his principal, and whilst the
clerk waa shut up 1. the telephone-
box the client, departed with all the
booty.
Tbe police having been put on the
track, with the strange eighth sense
tbey seem to possess tbey arrested the
same evening a man four feet in
height, known as "Cigar Stump," who
quickly denounced bis accomplice,
Ing under the aliases of "Count of Ker-
sant," Robert de Crecy," and other
aristocratic titles, but familiarly dubbed "The Captain." "If you can catch
htm you will have done a famous day's
work," said "Cigar Stump."
Got Him Neatly.
Though they had never seen the
man before tbe sleuth-hounds of the
law went questing over the boule-
vardc 'ill they saw a man sitting at a
tnlil'i in a cafe.
As he looked very like the description given an officer approached him
and whispered ln his ear, "You are
Pierre Michel, 'the Captain.' You had
better come along quietly." The
"count," however, blustered, talking
very big as to how the detective
would have to pay for his mistake, but
nevertheless he waB compelled to go
to the station, where he continued hie
protestations until he waB told that hie
friend "Cigar Stump" was in the next
room ready to Identify him.
"Ah, well, then; I am done," said
"the Captain," and, In the best of tempers, he confessed his peccadilloes,
saying: "You can never guess the
number of swindles I have committed.
1 am now 48, but since the age of 20 1

Ottawa, Ont., Feb. 3.���The progreBB
of the Borden naval proposals is being watched with keen Interest In the
motherland. This Is evident from letters which have recently been receiv
ed from that quarter by members of
the government. The letters vary, of
course, with the writers, some eoit-

Louie De Ritter. who was formerly
a me-riber of the Bristol council and

euggeBtltvg that the Canadian ships be

He point* out that the lack of protection in this part of Great Britain
tempted Napoleon in 1806, when his
grandfather was the leader of au expedition to make a diversion in that
quarter.
The grandson holds that no better
protection could be given to Britain's
food supply than by such a move, and
that, ln doing It. Canada would also
protect her own best trade route.

Melbourne Pastor Plays Havoc With
Gang of Toughs.
Sydney. Feb. 3--The Rev. John Hoe
king, Congregational minister, who
does a great deal of work in the slum
quarters of Melbourne, has given a
lesson to a gang of roughs who visited
hiB church t;y way of a Sunday evening puBtlme and Interrupted tlie service by whistling and making offensive remarks. Earlier they had broken the windows.
Mr. Hosktng left his pulpit, took off
hla Burpllce, and, walking up to the
ringleader, an athletic lad of 19
dealt him a heavy blow on the Jaw.
The Interrupter went down and hit
followers were bo astonished that they
were easily ejected.
"ThlB may seem a strange way to
conduct a church," Bald Mr. Husking
afterwards, "but what can a man do."
Must the neighborhood be deprived of
these services because some 20 hooligans choose to try to break them up?
1 have to be a detective and a pugilist as well as a preacher."
TREA8URES UNDER WHITEWASH

Rome, Keb. 8.--The removal nf the

1438 to 1444 of the four evangelists
and the miracles of St. John. They

architectural details appear to have
been colored a bright brick red.

Berlin, Feb. 3.���ln the strongest ceil
ot the Jail at Frankfort-on-Order, with
his leg cha ned to an Iron ring in the
stone floor, sits a murderer for whose
arrests rewards have been offered at
vr-ious times in Uie last few years
aggregating 12,000 marks ($3000). He
was charged first with three murders.
It was soon learned that he was responsible for at least two, and probably four more. The evidence now
accumulating appears likely to add
two, and perhaps more, to his account.
Nor is it at all certain that this numbers  represents  all.
The mail came last October to Ort-
wig, a village near Frankfort, and entered the employ or a prosperous farmer. A few nights ago some belated
persons saw a farm wagon being rur-
iously driven through the town. It
was discovered soon after that a stack
of straw In a field was afire. After
this was distinguished the bodies of
a man and woman were found In the
embers. These were socn Identified
as the bodies of the tanner and his
wife..
*-s.ranales -Three.
The farmhouse waa, found apparently deserted, but two daughters.
Aged 12 and 15, were eventually found
locked in a wurdrobe of their bed
room. Further search disclosed th��
body of a maidservant In a stall. All
three victims had been strangled.
Suspicion tell on the hired man
who was known only as Ileinric, and
he was arrested two days later in a
neighboring village. At the flrat hearing he strongly denied having any
thing to do with the murders. He was
being led to the lockup tor the night
when someone In the crowd caught
a glimpse of his peculiarly crippled
left hand and cried out, "That's Star-
nickel,"
With the aid of the finger print records the officers establshed that he
was Augustus Star-nickel, who wai
convlted of murdering a miller and his
family In Slleala ln May, 1905, but cs
caped from the officer In charge.
Following the trail back, the detec
tlvcs believe that they have reason
for saying that Starnlckel, who has
confessed to the triple murder at Ort
wig, ls likewise responsible for three
murders In Silesia two years ago and
also for a double murder In a town
near Frankfort last year. He ls likewise accused of killing a gendarme
some years ago by pushing him Into
the canal.
Has Bad Record.
The murderer, who is now 47 years
old, has a bad record as a young man.
Hc ls big and powerful, but a quiet
man, with no Indication In his features of his real character. He ha:i
almost a mania for keeping and caring  for  pigeons.
The horror caused by his deeds mingle with wonder at his nb'llty to elude
capture for bo long, despite his marked and easily described physical characteristics and In the face of the lnrge
rewards and the official restriction*
upon personal liberty and movements.
In Prussia, even when moving from
one house Into an adjoining one, three
forms must be made out for the police
giving the age, birthplace, religion
calling and other details of not onlv
ihe head of the family, but also of
every member and of servants. Morn
over Prussian officials are afflicted
with almost a mania for requiring
everybody to "legitimate himself," as
they term lt, on the allghtest occasion.
That Starnlckel should have apent
nine years In Prusala without any
papirB Is a fact that has aroused
much comment The most plausible
,-xplanation appears to be the great
and growing scarcity of farm labor,
which makes any laborer welcome on
any farm and no questions asked.

Ottawa, Feb. 3.~Sir Robert Perks,

Though Sir Robert Perks Is known
as a great contractor and engineer, be

was largely connected with parliamentary bills, and his success ln this direction was due to a chance idea.
It occurred to him that the Conway

efforts In this direction attracted the
attention of men who had hills to promote, and he was soon overwhelmned
with work.

much toward clearing up the history
of ancient America, left for Gotta

Count de Perlngy, while traveling In

The French Government has also

London, Feb. 3.���The Belgravla
gambling raid looks like putting the
stop to the mania for playing chemin
de fer, that has spread with such extraordinary rapidity ln London in the
laBt few months, as the police have become exceedingly active with a view-
to IU suppression.
That gaming Is more prevalent than
for many years past ls fully recognized
by Scotland Yard, but the difficulties
which confront the police are so
great that It Is extremely hurd, with
their present limited powers, to take
effective action.
It la not -s-aouKh to make a raid on
a house and catch persons in the art
ot playing cards; the. police must
prove absolutely that the place Is a
gaming houce, and to do so it must
be Ehown that the owner is deriving
advantages from the gaming.
Not Help Police.
As a rule, those engaged in the game
will not help the polce, while thc
principal endeavors to show that he le
a bona fide householder and that the
visitors are all friends, as in some respects they are.
It is no crime for a man to have a
card party In his own house, hence
tbere are obvious pit rails for the policeman who acts impetuously.
Under the gaming acts the keeper
of a gaming house may be sent to
prison, but lt ls usual simply to Impose a fine and to bind over the persons found frequenting the place not
to repeat tbe offence.
Many Adventurers-
While there are a largo sprinkling
of Continental aventurers in most of
the reBorts which have been recently
under supervision those present frequently include well known politicians and city men, In particular men
well known on the turf.
One house ln the vicinity of Gros-
venor place has witnessed so many
fashonnble assemblages for chemin de
fer that the tenants have acquired a
local reputation for the lavlshness of
their entertaining.
The charming hostess Is popularly
supposed to be "rolling In money" to
such an extent that Bhe thinks nothing
of giving three receptions and balls
In a week.
Gathers In Clients.
How does the gaming house keeper find bis clients? This problem

Is that a profitable business can afford
a few "commercial travellers."
One night recently the fame of thc

TUE8DAY, FEBRUARY -f, 1��1X..
TOMMY WILL LOSE
HIS SCARLET COAT
But Trouble >. Expected Before Khaki
Wins Out as Infantryman'.
Attire.
London, Feb. 3.���Thc red coat of
the British Infantrymen, which for
hundreds of yeara has been one of th*!
moBt striking features among the uniforms cf the armleB of the world, ls
to disappear and soon the world will
know no more "tbe thin red line of
heroes."
According to welf authunticated reports the secretary of war will disclose In his army estimate, as one ot
the principal measures of economy,
a proposal to abolish the famous scarlet full dress uniform or all tne Infantry of the Un*'. The kharkl Bervlce
dress Is to be the uniform ot the fu
ture.
That prospect, partcularly for the
recruiting sergeant and the nursemaid
in the park, ls not at all pleasant, but
aa an economic departure, the scheme
has much to recommend lt. If the
proposal finally comes before parliament It Is sure torn eel with strenuous'
opposition from those who regard tbe
bright attractive tunics as an important stimulus to recruiting and also
from those who merely consider the
-army as something more ornamental
than necessary.
A wordy parliamentary war between
sentimentality and utilitarianism ls
therefore promised.
The sentimental feeling of English
people for the historic uniforms of
their soldiers has only been recently
displayed in the opposition aroused
against discarding the kilts ot the
Highland troops.
When this proposition was put forward there was a general protest, not
only from the Highland regiments, but
from the whole country. It resulted
in the kilt being retained, and It Is
hardly possible that the red coat will
be discarded without a struggle.
For a moment, it Is not suggested
that the dashing guardsman shall have
the beauty of his apparel Interfered
with. Neither Is there any proposal
made to strip the cavalry, Royal Ar-
tillera, or Royal Engineers of their
resplendent trappings, although this
probably would follow as a matter of
course.

HIM8ELP
Paris, Feb. 8.���A well-dressed man
of about 40 years approached an employee at one of the Seine steamboat
stations, and In French with an English accent asked him to hold his overcoat.
The employee did so, and the stranger remarked, "You are extremely obliging, sir, and I am very grateful. I
will now bid you good-bye forever."
Thereupon he Jumped Into the Seine
n.nd was drowned. Ills body has not
yet been recovered nor bis Identity
been established.
Tho waterproof overcoat was la-
helled "W. P. and Co.," and In on<- of
the nonketa was a handkerchief marked "L."

Late German   Foreign   Mlnlstrr  Was

Berlin. Feb. 3.���Herr von Kldorlen-
Waejjhter, the late German foreign
mlnUter, known on account of his rotund figure as "The Dumpling," was a
boon to cortooniBtB all his life. So
much was this the case that In 1894,
tired of the attacks In the paper, he
fought a duel with the editor of Klad-
deradutsch, whom he left on the Held
of honor with a bullet wound In the
right shoulder.
In France "ridicule kills." In Germany -apparently It docs not, tor the
man whose gaudy waistcoat and blunt
oratory caused him to be laughed
down ln tbe Reichstag only tour years
ago lived to be the recognized leader
of Germany's Blsmarcklan world pol
ley.
Herr von Klderlen-Waechter, when
he sat down amid the roars of laughter of the House In November, 190*1.
after endeavoring to defend the German foreign office against charges of
inefficiency was probably the only
man who knew lie would get over the
reception. Everyone else considered
his career endc d.
He was a thick-set, unsentlmentil
business man, prompt and rapid and a
tremendous worker, with not a scrap
of Imagination ln him. An epicure after the fashion of the legendary baron, of the Rhine, he practiced a Gargantuan hoi-.pit.-ility. He delighted in
presiding over his own beer cask, cou
sumed Immense quantities of oysters
and smoked Havana cigars of prodigious size. With such tastes, it ls
small wonder that he preferred to remain a bachelor.

ty fishermen, more than halt the male
population ot this village, were .wept
out ln Lake Michigan recently wben
a large ice floe on which they were
fishing cracked and floated away
from shore. All were rescued after
terrible suffering.
The cries of the men brought tne
children and women to the shore,
where they stood ln terror and watched their loved ones being alowly swep'
Into Lake Michigan.
Small boat, were manned by bora,
and after a perlloua ride through the
cake, aome of the men were taken
ashore. The boat, were too .mall to
carry all, and aome of tbe other* dls
crded tbelr heavier clothing and
swam through the icy water to safety.

London,, Falk 3.���The fath-sr, an ex-
hlgh sheriff, and stepmother of tbe
boy John Spencer Crosier, aged! 16, of
whose manslaughter by starvation
they had. beam found guilty by the Jury,
were brought into court for. sentence
at the Ulster assizes at Londons-leryy.
The step-nother, Jessla Florence
Crosier, who waa a farm-servant before the boy's father mair-riad her
after th�� death of hi. first} wife, waa
sentenced to 12 year.' penal! servitude.
The taiber, John George (Droller, a
justice ot the peace for CUs-nty Fer-
manas-tgh, one ot lt. aselz** grand jurors, and on one occasion; high sheriff,
was sentenced to penal -servitude for
rive -rears. .   , ���
Tbe Judge, Mr. Juattso Wright, as
he came to tbls latter -pronouncement
lost bis voice from emotion, bowed
hla head for a moasst and wiped
away a tear. He waa not moved in
sentencing the woman, whom he considered the principal offender���"the
master mind."
Plteoua   Sight
The court house wm, crowded. Th.
couple tn tbe dock were a pitiable
spectacle���the man. pale of face, wttb
shrunken cheeks, wlldness of eye, obviously broken In spirit and In health;
the wife emotionless, dark, somewhat
haggard, showing the face of the farm
servant; and her heavy sentence
seemed to bring to her no increase of
distress.
Mr. Justice Wright, addressing first
the two prisoners jointy, said he concurred lo the finding of the Jury that
they had treated this boy with deliberate and continuous neglect. They
had means to provide him with proper
food, sufficient in quantity and nourishing In quality, but they had deliberately and systematically withheld
a proper supply ot food.
It was Florence Crosier who with
her own hand on each occasion for
the last miserable six months of the
poor boy's life had given him a miserably insufficient allowance, of food.
The prisoners must have noticed what
everyone who came in contact with
this poor boy noticed, that he waB
wasting away.
- Severe Sentence.
A more awful picture," said the
Judge, "has never, perhaps, been described in court than that of the daily
life of this boy in his father's home.
He, the eldest son ot the house, had
to go about barefooted until the skin
wor worn off hia feet; he scrubbed
flagged passages and had to perform
the duties of a maid of all work.
You," he said, addressing the female prisoner, "ln my mind are the
principal offender ln these transactions," and he pronounced the sentence
Turning  to  the  father,  the   Judge
said:    "It ts bard to distinguish any
degree of criminality between you and
your wife, tout, you were tne Is-Aher ot ifj
the boy.    You were * man, and   youtl
j should have behaved like a man." 11

Tne Importance
of
Advertising
/
Advertising is as universal as air.
It is as important to the whole people as hygiene, politics, fashions, sports, romance, art or science.
I was going to say it is of as much consequence to
everybody as religion, and maybe, after all, it is.   -
Religion prepares you for a happy hereafter, while advertising prepares you for a happy life here and now.
Advertising is as closely identified with the home today as food and raiment themselves.
It takes a thing that people ought to know about and
makes it known.
It enables the housewife to select with care and forethought what the family is to eat and wear.
By means of advertising the purest, most perfect and
best that man can produce is described, pictured and
praised.
Without advertising, crackers, sugar, flour, tea, coffee and other staples would still be scooped out of barrels,
along with myriads of microbes and numberless germs.
Without advertising, a dealer would give you what he
pleased, but with advertising he gives you what you
please.
Advertising has made the sale of inferior things difficult.
lt hu put germ-proof, dust-proof and di-sappotat-
ment-proof wrappers around the packages.
It has found millions of jobs for the jobless, and enabled the employer to choose the worthy from the unworthy.
It finds the lost and restores the stolen.
When a new idea, process, or accomplishment to benefit mankind springs from the brain of the creators, advertising puts the name, the picture, the particulars and
ihe price be/pre the worMs eyes.
Advertising enables men and women to At*M economically and stylishly by making standard tiad* marks
of wearing apparel fashioned by men who do the thing
better thsn it wss ever done before.
Advertising fills the churches, the theatres, ihe lecture rooms, and thus spreads knowledge to and from the
Several corners of the earth.
,     Advertising makes and unmakes politicians, and does
much to decide who shall pilot the affairs ef the nation.
Advertising is the irresistible force that is lifting the
world up and pushing it on and on. \
It is the mighty power that enables the unknown to
���grapple with the strong.
It is an avalsnehe���a cataclysm, if you please���that is
sweeping into the bottomless pit the crook, the sdultera-
ior, the substitutor, the trickster and the fraud.
Adverti��irigUnowlntJiehantl*ofthedrXr��^thel��on-
orable and the worthy.
It has been wrested from the control of the swindler
and the unscrupulous. "*.
And this mighty energy is destined to revotatienlze
all the plans snd methods of mra that have had sway
through the centurieis V
Advertising is f reatev than sU-ain or electricity-^
greater than armies and navit^-greateir thsn those woo
think tht^unt^iriitaiid it i��w realize.
