Word Is Received That Order in Council Has Been Passed at Ottawa Authorizing:
Foreshore Grant to City���Sapperton will Now Have Excellent Harbor and Front
Street Will Be Widened to a Width of 190 Feet���Actual Construction on Harbor
���Big Developments Are Now Expected.
The final step that will assure the
carrying out of the harbor Improvements and give to tbe city otber facilities, that will ultimately make New
Westminster one of the first cities on
the Pacific coatt has been consummated. Following tbe announcement
that the New Westminster harbor
commission bill had been passed,
word waa received In the city on Saturday from Ottawa that the Dominion
government had granted tbe foreshore rights.
'Order ln council passed authorizing foreshore grant. Justice department will issue letters patent Immediately." These were the important
words flashed to the city ln a telegram on Saturday.
Status of Grant.
When atked regards tbe status of
the grant, ex-Mayor Lee stated tbat
the city would be granted the foreshore rights a further distance of 117
feet into the Fraser river than the
present line established, and alto tbe
foreshore rights from the present
water lots which terminate at the
Junction of Front and Columbia
streets right out to the Brunette river.
'From the present terminus of tbe
water lots to the Brunette river there
Ib a distance of 2500 feet which if
placed at a very conservative valuation of |300 per foot for waterfront
property will be an asset to the city
of $750,000," Bald Mr. Lee. "Independent of thlt, however, we are getting a ttretcb of property back of the
water lots which will enable the olty
to project Front street on a water
grade through Sapperton, alao making provltlon foj- a double track for
an electric line to connect Coqultlam
and the north bank of the Fraser river
with New Westminster, gor Industrial
purposes there Is no waterfront property ln the city of New Wettmintter
tbat lends itself so admirably to development as thla section."
Justification for Stand.
"The stretch of water frontage In
Sapperton," continued Mr. Lee, "hat
been given to the city because of our
activities in developing our present
waterfront and other harbor facilities.
Thlt la surely justification for tbe
atand taken by (he progressive element of New Westminster ln undertaking great harbor and transportation facilities. Too much importance
cannot be attached to this acquisition
of valuable Industrial property."
Credit la Oue.
"Too mucb praise cannot be given
to our member, Mr. J. D. Taylor, for
hit efforts to secure tbit property and
the passing of the harbor bill, and we
are also indebted to Sir William Mackenzie for his Interest and Influence."

feet into the river will enable the city ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
to widen Front street to a width of: but this will not interfere with the

and docks along the front.
Actual Construction.
With the patting of the harbor commission bill and the granting of the
foreshore rights there it nothing now
to prevent the council from proceed
ing with the actual construction of
the first portion of the harbor Improvements Tbe action of the council ln calling for tendera and awarding contracts for portions of the
work, will now ba appreciated, for
everything possible has already been
done, the construction work being held
back until the matter of the foreshore rlghtt was settled.
Unbroken Pierhead.
The granting of the foreshore rightt
In Sapperton will give an unbroken
pierhead from Tenth street clear
down to Sapperton. This will give
Sapperton as good ahlpping facilities
as are to be bad in any other portion
of the city and ought at once to establish Sapperton as one of the best industrial sections of New Westminster

Red carnations, the inalgnia of the

The Responsibility of the Parents to
the Boy," and to hear the special
vocal and instrumental music prepared for the occasion.
In opening bit addreaa Rev. W. H.
Vance deplored the fact thnt there

that boya were deserting the roof of
their parents for the atreeta and elsewhere for their pleasure. Fathers and
mothers were too seldom seen walking with their children, Some parents
did not even know their children, the
nurse or governeaa being lett in complete charge of their bringing up.

The order in council which was passed by the Dominion government at the end of last week and which
gives to the city authority to administer the foreshore
in front of the property owned by New Westminster upon
lhe waterfront, sets the seal of success upon the long and
-difficult task of preparation for harbor development
which has been undertaken during the past three years.
The rights involved in the granting of the foreshore
in front of the British Columbia penitentiary are of the
very greatest importance to Westminster's development,
particularly upstream from the bridge. The department
under whose jurisdiction this property was held offered
no objections when the city's application was made during ex-Mayor Lee's visit to Ottawa last year. They then
stated that they would be willing to make the transference subject to sufficient wharfage being reserved for
the needs of the penitentiary.
The order in council means that irrespective of the
fact that the city may now go ahead with the widening
of Front street, New Westminster has been granted the
title to nearly half a mile of waterfront property which
at the present time is worth fully three-quarters of a million dollars���in itself a sum far exceeding the amount
that the ratepayers voted for harbor expenditure last
Here again is another, and surely a tangible sign, that
the plans of the city for development as a great port have
been well and truly laid. The men who have worked
faithfully for their consummation are deserving of the
highest praise from their fellow citizens.
There is no doubt that New Westminster will in due
course possess one of the finest harbors in the world, and,
as one great authority in the East has said, when it is developed to its apparent capability we shall have here a 	
harbor that will be larger in extent and more accessible'are lit,!e ln ���?vl'ience |n France. There

Fallleres  Retires Today  After a Successful  Administration.
This is tho last day ot Armand Kal
lieres as president of France. Come
tomorrow and the venerable French
statesman will retire to his vineyard,
while M. Polncaire will take up his
residence in the Elysee. During his
administration of seven years, "Papa'
Fallleres has accomplished much for
the good of his country.
His influence on affairs has beet,
considerable, despite the allegation
that the French executives are (mere
figureheads. Also, he has been an object of "ridicule among those "fashionables" to whom tbe character of Fallleres was incomprehensible. They
have made a mock of his simplicity,
leered at his frugality, and derided
his estimable wife. It was alleged
that the president of Franc was boor
tab, a miser and what on this side of
the Atlantic is called "a rube." This
was to be expected, for the "smart
set" have always derided those who
feed them. Yet Fallleres, ln the society of kings and the great men of
earth, comported himself with a simple dignity that won their admiration.
King George found In the retiring
president of France a kindred spirit.
Many American writers have joined in the chorus of ridicule of Fallleres, forgetting that "Honest Abe" Lincoln, who is now almost worshipped
as the patron saint of the United
States, was when alive subjected to
the bittprest taunts and jeers on the
score of his obscure origin, his extreme simplicity, his so called uncouth
manners and his utter unfitness for
the frivolous social affairs of a capital.
Reading the fashionable journals of
half a century ago, one finds that in
the opinion of the dudes and dames
cf the Washington elect President Lln
coin was socially impossible���oh. quite
impossible. "A grotesque and uncouth
person," "an unmitigated boor," "a
fellow better suited to the society of
a backwoods tavern than the White
House"���such wa3 the great commoner as viewed by "smart" Washing
tcnians of his time. Lincoln wa3 a
representative American, and Fallleres is also a representative Frenchman���kindly, of simple tastes, frugal
and careless of the dictates cf society-
With the close of the Fallleres administration today, France is more
prosperous than ever before, and her
prosperity is more evenly divided
among a whole people than is the case
in any other nation ln the world. The
extremes of poverty and great wealth
the scheme existed only ln the head of
young McClure.
The project made a hit with the editors, and within a few years Mr. McClure had made a young fortune from
the business. He founded McClure'B
Magazine twenty years ago, and for a
time the publication hung dizzily on
the brink of failure. All of the profits
from the syndicate went into the
greedy maw of the magazine, and it
cried for more.
After a while the reading public began to observe that Mr. McClure was
offering an excellent magazine for
the money, and the founder, plus a few
gray hairs ln his head and a number
of worry wrinkles on his countenance,
was able to move Into a brownstone
front on EaBy street.
Mr. McClure has a number of ideas
about this and that, which he airs in
his publications. One of his pet
schemes Is the commission form of
municipal government, as originated
ln Galveston and developed in Dos
Moines and many other cities.
The editor of McClure'B has a poor
opinion of the average run of American mayors. Not long ago, in the
course ot an address on municipal
government, he remarked:
"We have to look to Germany for
efficient municipal officials. In that
country every municipal employee,
from the mayor down to the humblest
Btreet cleaner, ls an expert ln his
line. You can't find a single mayor
ln North America who could get a
job ln Germany."
Divinely tall and most remarkably
thin Is the president of the publishing
house of Harper, Col. George Drinton
McClellan Harvey, who yesterday
passed his forty-ninth milestone. The
editor of Harper's Weekly Is a native
of the Green Mountain States, and was
a rah-rah boy at Peacham Academy,
In his native village.
His first newspaper job was as a reporter of the Springfield, Mass., Republican, and later he was employed
on the Chicago News. After a year as
New Jersey insurance commissioner
he returned! to journalism as managing editor of the New York World. He
made a fortune in electric railroad
building in the early '90's, and in 1899
bought the North American Review.
Shortly afterward he gained a controlling intereBt in the Harper publications.
During the recent unpleasantness
in Turkey the affairs of England have
been in the competent hands of Sir
Gerald Augustus Lowthers, British
ambassador at Constantinople, who is
65 years old today. The distinguished
liplomat, who Is a brother of the Earl I
of Lonsdale, famed as a patron of boxing, has served in Madrid, Paris, Vienna, Sofia, Bucharest, Tokio and other
capitals, and for a time was secretary
of the embassy at Washington.
He was also minister to Chile and
Tangier before he went to Turkey as 	
ambassador In 1908.   Lady Lowther Ib

The New Westminster News does
uot hold itself responsible for the
opinions expressed in correspondence
Dear Sir���May I ask your co-operation and support, through the columns
of your paper, for the following resolution, which I suggest should be passed by every board of trade throughout British Columbia, as well as every
other public body, upon strictly non-
political lines?
About July of tbls year a new
treaty will be negotiated between
Great Britain and Japan, and any suggestion made by Canada is certain of
adoption. 1 propose the following
"That It ls urgently necessary that
the Provincial Government be and it
is hereby petitioned to enact such legislation as will prohibit Orientals from
becoming the registered owners of
real estate within this province, unless 'such Orientals are British subjects by birth or naturalization, and
that copies of this resolution be forwarded to our representatives in the
parliament of British Columbia as
well aB to our representatives In the
Dominion parliament."
I also suggest that tho Dominion
Government be asked to co-operate In
the event of the Provincial Government taking action along these lines,
and bring the matter to the attention
of the Imperial authorities with a
view to having the Japanese treaty so
amended as to allow this legislation.
As the people of this province are
practically agreed upon this subject,
it is unnecessary for me to discuss
the "raison d'etre." I have the honor
to be, Sir,
Yours faithfully,

The'present is one of those times and we trust that

in the interview which our Ottawa
correspondent hnd with Mr. Stefans-
non, there waB one remark of the fam,

���merit s attention.
He said that amongst that now no
torious tribe of blonde-haired and
lilue-cyo-d Eskimos he found nothing
���BURgcstive of European origin except
their folk-lore. And from another re
mark of his, it Is clear that that these
primitive people retain the traditions
of Ihat Viking literature which gave
Wagner his inspiration and gave Europe the foundation stone ot Its moat
���advanced aesthetic movement.
The modern Scandinavian may have
ceased to believe In Sigurd of Hrun-
hilde. but tho modern Rskimo, accord
ing to Slefansson, can still recount
their trajOc Btory as authentic history, lie believes because in nn mt
iMoken tradition ho has been taught

but, measure for measure. It is a poor

ancient literature represented the
achievements of a poo-f-le.
If SU'fansson has reallv discovered
a race which Is sn primitive as to retain as a vital part of their existence
the traditions of heroic days, biological science should learn much from
them. Is thero a law or devolution

* THIS  DAY   IN a
��� ���
Early in December, 1S69, Louis Rial,
leader of the disaffected  half-breedB
In the Red River Rebellion, had cap-,
tured Borne fifty English-speaking sup-
porters of the government.      At the!
to discuss the grievances of the Red
River colonists, which was attended
by Mr. Donald Smith (now Lord
Strathcona) and two other commissioners of the Dominion, Rlel set free
his captives.
ln the meantime, a party of loyal
settlers from Portage la Prairie, under the command of Major Boulton,
had marched to Kildonan, with a view
of attacking Fort Garry and effecting
the release of the prisoners. This being accomplished by negotiation, Mr.
Smith begged Boulton's party to disperse. But on February 17, 1870, as
they were passing behind Fort Garry
on their homeward Journey, Rlel Intercepted  the   major   and  47  otherB.
Boulton was Immediately tried by
court-martial and condemned to be
fhot nt noon on the following day.
Thanks to the untiring exertions of
Mr. Smith however the execution was
poEtpontd till midnight of the 19th,
and at the eleventh hour, when the
prisoner had given up hopo and had
made ull prep-iritlons for death, the
president of the "Provisional Government"  consented   to  pardon   him.
Montreal, Feb. 16.--When a hungry

about to step on a car going west,
and the horse was attached to a brew-
r--d irrVd as if he had nothing left to live for.
The lady's hat was of black velvet,
neau de sol, bengaline, etc., with enormous ostrich plumes.
The car door was but a few steps
frrm tt-e horse, and the lady brushed
past lhe animal. Ills eyes gazed de-

and pulled until there was a snap.
It waB some time before the driver
could get his horse to relinquish his
hold nn the treasure and lt was also
some time before the lady had finished telling what she thought to the driver. Meanwhile the horse stood gazing at the sunset and looking as it he
had nothing left to live for.

initiated a movement for the celebration in 1915 of the tercentenary ot the

Simpson,  warden of   the   county   of,

Contracts for   Installation   of   Eight
Meat Powerful Stations Awarded In New York.
Montreal, Feb. 16.���Commencing
with the year 1670, when the Hudson's
Bay Company wat firBt granted "ItB
charter to engage ln trade with tho
Indians and govern the land according
to their own ideas, Dr. George Bryce,
vice-president of the Archaeological
Institute reviewed the history of the
great fur company for 260 years, before a large audience ln the physics
building ot McOlll University, and illustrated many of his remarks by lantern views.
The epeaker claimed to be a personal admirer of the company, not altogether because of its open-hearted
nest in repaying the Indians for the
furs tley brought, for of thlt they were
seldom guilty, but because of tho manner in which the company had ruled
the land without martial law, and had
prospered among a people, and ln a
land wholly new to them.

Although a great deal of the apeak
er's time wat taken up In dealing with
historic points only, he UK d numerous
bright instances which were highly
amusing. Although the Union Jack

puny, he sa'd. tho flag alto bore three
lettert:    H. O. C.
'Ihit waa sometimes interpreted at
"Here Before Christ," and although
he admitted that the company was an
old Institution in Canada, he rather
doubted whether It could go back to
far. It to happened that when the
company waa organised lt was given a
royal charter, and therefore received
pet .'sslon to place the initials of the
company upon the flag.
Dr. Bryce did not tpeak ot mattera
concerning tbe Hudson's Bay Company and the great north entirely from
record-acquired knowledge, for he had
spent a number of yeara among the
Indians, the Orkneymen and the voya-
He had felt the pangs of hunter and
the Intense cold of the Arctic regions,
and was, therefore, prone to give a
third Interpretation to the lettert
which appeared upon the Union Jack���
He referred In patting over the
years of history to the governora ot

Victoria  Institutes   Crusade    Against
Sweepstakes, Raffle, and Other
Forms of Gambling.
��� Victoria, Feb. IS.���What is understood to be a start against sweepstakes, rut'l'les and all other forms of
gambling has been started in Victoria
and henceforth all -games ot this kind
will be dealt with under the criminal
code prohibiting lotteries. Notices
have been served on men who were
conducting raffles in this city that all
monies must be refunded immediately
or prosecution will be commenced.
This decision is the result of a con
ference between the city prosecutoi
and Chief of Police John Langley.
There is no .��U.er province in Canada where ewe"; stakes and lotteries
nre tolerated and the criminal code
ls the same all over the Dominion, so
the authorities 1 ere have no hesitation in stating that raffles are absolutely illegal. The institutions, however, have gained a strong foothold
In British Columbia and a stubborn
fight which might be taken as high
up as the privy corrcil will bo waged
before the matter is finally ended.
Recently the magistrate at Duncan
refused to try a man charged with
conducting a lottery, which was a
raffle on a hoiiaa and lot-
Notice has been served on Hi.
James M. Nellis that he must with
draw a house from raffle and return
the money to all who bought tickets.
He has already sent ont circulars to
those, holding tickets on the house
tellinK them Ihey can -obtain their
money by calling at his home.
lt ia anticipated that the movement launched here will effect a much
wider community than Victoria and
if convictions are recorded in this city
It is thought that other administrations will take up the light.
Dice shaking Is also being followed
up, fur those at the back of the raffles
aro complaining to the police that discrimination Is being shown.

When the New York Giants and the
Chicago White Sox visit Australia
next winter, they will get a warm welcome from the fans "down under.."
lt is only In recent years that America's national game has ma.de any
headway in the Antipodes, but it Is
now coming to the front with a rush,
according to all reports, and the visit
of the big leaguers will doubtless give
it a wider vogue.
Football is the .popular sport of the
Australians, with cricket a close second. American visitors introduced
baseball, and It was taken up by some
of the cricket teams of Melbourne and
Sydney, but at first attracted little
attention. A few years ago baseball
matches were played as preliminaries
to important football contests, but
few of the spectators cared for the
curtain-raisers. Baseball was dismissed as a much-overpraised institution, and the papers seldom reported the games.
Then a bunch of California boys
went to Australia to school, and the
very first thing they did was to organize a baseball nine. The lads were
not chosen for their diamond ability,
and placed a pretty poor game, but
they looked like an aggregatton of
Mathewsons and Cobbs and WagnerB
when compared with the Australian
players. They ran up tremendous
scores against the local teams, and
occasionally pulled off brilliant plays
that brought the spectators whooping
to their  feet.
The pride of the Australians was
arouBed, and they set about building
tin a nine that could lick the Invaders.
This spirit of competition was all
baseball needed to make lt popular in
Australia, and the thousands of fans
of the Island continent are preparing
to give a grand, glittering and gorgeous welcome to the Giants and the
White Sox. And if that California
schoolboy team looked good to them,
what will they think of the stars of
the big thow?

New York, Feb. 16.���In an address
at the Banquet of the Maritime Association here last night, Sir Ernest
Shackl-jton, the Antarctic explorer,
referred feelingly to the Antarctic
tragedy disclosed last week in the
death ot Captain Robert F. Scott and
his four companions, among them Dr.
LIdward'A. WllBon.
Lieutenant Shackleton told of having buret a blood vessel in a Polar
expedition 11 years ago and bow he
was helped ln his trouble by his two
companions, who gave him their
every effort and saved his life.
"The two men," he said, "were
Scott and Wilson. It is with deep
personal feeling that 1 speak of the
tragedy of the five men who died In
the far south. My heart is full and
I cannot speak much of the men who
gave their lives ln a work in which
is an incentive to the coming generation. I know you American people
feel aB we do, who are mourning for
them at home."

Having walloped Vancouver on
thetr own ice the Royals are planning
to pay especial attention to the aggregation from Victoria who will invade New Westminster for the firBt
time this season tomorrow evening.
So far this winter Lester Patrick

way, cleaning up both the Royals and
Vancouver right and left and with
visions of both the Paterson and
Stanley Cups in the near distance he
is expecting to repeat the doBe Vancouver handed out to the local fans
in the first home game of the Beason.

Smaill which will keep him out of the
game for a time at least and the brilliant work of the Royals in Vancouver

Playing better hockey at all stages
of the game,'tho Paterson ('upholders
retrieved a little of their lost glory
when they defeated Vancouver on the
Georgia atreet ice on Saturday night
to the tune of 5 to 3. lt waa a game
in which Individualism shone over
combination work," with the Royals
taking thi> lion's share of- the former,

look as If the Eastern ctyle of play

Nat b'.ng cont nt to stay back on

of thn Rryall went through the Vancouver bunch time and again, notching two goaln while having the hardest kind of luck on half a dozen
(ccarious. Although suffering from
the Injuries he received In the game
ngulnst Vancou ter a week ago, John-
i on took tho ice with a determination
to make a mark fnr himself and while
he mndu that mark, Dame Fortune
let him cut of her grasp long enough
for the big fellow to get a gash in
one of his legs which necessitated
foveral stitches being made. Did hc
���quit the gamer No, slree. He Just
went back on the defence and stopped
every rush but one and that was when
Taylor got In a side shot which found
its billet.
Returning to the game, Westminster
won pn their merits. The defenoe
was the strongest shown this year,
while tbe happy knack of one of the
forwards dropping back whenever
Johnson or Rochon started off wltb
tbe puck worked tn perfection.
Vancouver opened the scoring when
Frank Patrick went through alone,

he took the rubber away from Taylor,

The seoond period was a Utne affair

Ran McDonald was laid out by Harris by being bumped against the fence

Harris escaping with a warning.
Taylor finally managed to notch another for Vancouver, but tbls faded
Into ini.-lgnlfic.ince at the fine effort
of R. McDonald, who went through
for the last tally ot the game two minutes from time.
The Vancouver speed wonder, Cyclone Taylcr, had the crbwd cheering
his v.'oiu'li rful turning and twisting,
but he w is Ineffective. The Hoyals

Sir George Askwlth Reports on visit
to Canada and Investigation of
Labor   Conditions.
London, Feb. 16.���The value of the
Lemleux act Is clearly demonstrated
by Sir George Askwlth in his report
to the British Qovernment upon his
investigation into that matter ln Can
adad in September last.
He says: "Such a measure as the
Lemieux act, while not ensuring a
complete absence of strikes and lock
otus, would, ln my opinion, be a valuable asset to the United Kingdom
and employers and employed alike."
. The real value of the measure, Sir
George says, lies tn permitting the
parties and the public to obtain full
knowledge of the real cause of the
dispute, and ln causing suggestions to
be made as Impartially aa possible.
On the basis of such knowledge for
dealing with existing difficulties,
whether the strike or lockout has
commenced or not, this action on behalf of the public allows annealment
and calm judgment.to be introduced
into the dispute, which at the time
the parties themselves may be unable
to exercise.
Another satisfactory feature, In his
opinion, is the fact that the act differs essentially from compulsory arbitration. It does not force unsuitable
regulations upon industry by compulsory and legal Insistence, but leaves
an opportunity for modification by the
parties, or Indicates a basis on which
a settlement can be made.
Of 132 disputes arising since the
act went into force, 20 were settled
before a hearing, 107 were reported
upon by boards of conciliation and Investigation, five were before the
boards still in session.
Generally, objections to the act appeared to Sir George to be such as
would disappear as the act became
better understood, or could be remedied by some amendment of the act
without altering its main principles.

in the Days of Cicero
Cobalt. Feb. 16���After following
Mike Margaret and Arthur Miller, a
pair accused of complicity In a whiskey robbery at Ville Marie, on a trail
which necessitated a drive In a blinding snowstorm across Lake Timtska-
mlng and then an all-night trip on
snow shoes eighteen miles In from
Matabltchouan, Provincial Constable
Jack MsKay and Constable Robert
Sharp, of this town, successfully effected their arrest.
The two constables left Cobalt on
Monday evening about 6 o'clock, anil
after reaching Halleybury drove to
Ville Marie. A raging blizzard came
upon them while they were on the
lake, and for miles the officers could
not see more than a few feet ahead of
But for the fact that one of the accused wore a pair of hoots with nails
In .them and that they found the prints
on McDonald Creek, off Grass Lake,
the trip would likely have been a
failure. With nothing but the tracks
in the snow to guide them the officers
continued until they saw smoke curling over an elevation. They rushed
in and covered Margaret and Miller
with revolvers, and the prisoners did
not have a chance to offer resistance.
The party returned to Cobalt on
Thursday night about 11 o'clock greatly fatigued. They were fifty-three
hours making the trip, and Constable
McKay had two houre' sleep, while
Constable Sharp managed to secure
only an hour's nap.

though because of its political nature
he disclaimed any desire   to   discuss
the question of "Judicial recall."
Agitation for the recall of JudgeB, he
said, had sprung from dissatisfaction
in some states with present methods
of appointment. It was desirable, he
continued, that the judges should enjoy the full confidence of the people
and the methods of popular election
haB been adopted to obtain that object. But was it always possible for
the mass of the people to have a real
knowledge of who the fittest men
were for public office and if the people were uot able themselves to judge,
might lt not be that the popular vote
was really not an expression of the
selection by the people themselves,
hut by the groups of persons who had
a personal of political interest ln directing the popular vote to candidates
who might not be really the best men
for Judicial office?
The system of apointment by the
government or the state legislature
he said, was deemed to work well tn
some states where it had been continued from very old times, but he was
told there was no likelihood that It
would be adopted In states where it
did not now exist.
Mr. Bryce declared that among the
ties that bound the United States to
Great Britain few were stronger than
their point possesion of the old common law of Kngland. That common
law, he said, was much American as

Gen-nan Ex-Sergeant Who Faces Score

Berlin, Feb. 16,���Facing a score of
possible charges ranging from forgery
to lese majeste, It was sa^d today that
August Wolter, the exsergeant who
alarmed the Strausberg garrison,
would plead insanity and be sent to
an asylum.
Wolter was dismissed from the col
ors for defalcation, nnd evaded punishment by allowing himself to bo de
clared of unsound mind. Then h<
boasted that he would put something
over that would show that his wits
were still ln excellent working order.
Later details from AUaco-lx-irralne
add to tho ludlcrousncss of tho hoax.
Wolter. disguised as a messenger boy

The ancient art of shorthand has
had Its votaries and its commercial
value Bince tho days of Cicero, but
In the darkness which overwhelmed
the world after the fall of Rome the
knowledge of stenography waa utterly lost.
The Inventor of modern shorthand
was Timothy Bright, a London physician, who published ln 1G88, with a
dedication to Queen Elizabeth, an Eng
lish treatise on stenography, called
"characterle, an art of shorte, swlfte,
and secret writing by character."
Bright was an original Inventor, in that
the secret of the ancient shorthand
was not unravelled until the beginning of the nlneteeuth century. Only
one copy of the famous treatise "char-
iclerie" is known to be In existence.
It Is at the Bodleian; the symbols
are all written in ink, which is rapidly fading.
Elizabeth granted to Bright for a
leriod of fifteen years the exclusive
privilege of printing books and teaching ln or by "characterle," which system was immediately put to a commercial use for reporting the sermons
"f Henry Smith, the preacher at St
Clement Danes, the Spurgeon of his
age, greatly to the indignation of that
'silver-tongued" divine.
Bright's monopoly was, however,
-���liort-lived. In 1590 Peter Bales, a
jallgraphist, specializing In microscopic penmanship, pbliahed "The Wrlt-
ng Schoolmaster," a treatise explaining his system of stenography or
"Bracklgraphic" as he termed IL Bale
had already achieved fame by writing within the compass of a penny In
Latin the Lord's Prayer, the Creed,
the Commandments, a prayer to God
a prayer to the Queen, his posle, his
name, and the full date.
Ho presented the same to the Queen
at Hampton court, in 1575 in the head
of a gold ring, covered with crystal
together with an excellent spectacle
hy him devised for the easier reading
thereof. Skilled caligraphists found
nfluentlal patrons In those days.
They were employed by the government to Imitate the handwriting of Intercepted letters, ln order to add mat
ter to them which might bring replies
to serve state ends, while as experts
n handwriting their evidence sent
many men to thc block or torture
chamber. Bales was In the employ
of Walsingham and Hatton, and his
craft led to the discovery of Babing-
ton's plot.
Both Bright's and Bales' shorthand
alphabets were too clumsy to be spoiled to the whole of a word, aa was
done by John Willis, whoso "art of

first practical and rational system, and
the foundation of all the latter sys
terns, of shorthand. Thomas Shelton.
a zealouB puritan, carried the art a
step further. He was the author of
two different systems, viz., "Tachy-
graohy." In 1637, and "Zoiglographla"
in  1649.
Pepys wrote his diary in Tachygra
���hy which was at last deciphered in
1S25 by Rev. John Smith from the original MS. Zeiglographics gave occasion for the very earliest business ad
vertisement which is to be found In
any English newspaper, viz., in the
18th number of the "Mercurius Poll
ticus," for October 3-10, 1650.
This historic "ad" Is printed in col

A copy of the Bible written in Met
calf's system by Dr. Holder, complet
ed In 1668, ls preserved In the British
museum. Dr. Isaac Watts used Met
calf's system. In 1672 William Mason,
the best shorthand author of the seventeenth century, published his "Feu
Plucked from an Eagle's Nest."
The alphabet was largely taken
from Rich's. But In his "Art's Advancement", 1682, only six of Rich's
letters are retained, and ln his "Plume
Volaute",- 1707, further changes an.
made. Mason's labors gavo such an
Impetus to the improvement of the
art that his works were soon superceded by succeeding authors. Mason's
system was republished by Thomab
Ourney in 1740, a circumstance which
has perpetuated its use to the present
day, for in 1737 Gurney waa appointed shorthand writer to the old Bailey, and in 1813 W. B. Qurney was appointed shorthand writer to both the
houses cf parliament.
Sir Isaac Pitman, the centenary of
whose birth occured last month, was
the inventor of tbe most philosophical
of all stenographies, viz., a system of
shorthand written by sound.

London, Feb. 16.���The tragedy of
two women who led lonely lives ln a
large houae at Sydenham was told at
an Inqnest on the bodies of Mrs. Sarah
Bremner Wood, aged 80, the widow
of a cotton mill owner, and her nurse-
housekeeper, Maria Leason, aged 60.
The former, a lady of Independent
i means, was found lying ln her ntght-
, dress on the bedroom floor, and died
shortly after being lifted on to her
bed, and Leason was discovered with
her neck broken at the toot ot the
basement stairs. They lived by themselves at Hlghfie.Id, West Hill.
Tho body of Mrs. Wood was Identified by Miss Helen llulsall Bell, of
Hazeldene, Ightham, Kent, as that of
her great-aunt She last saw her on
Saturday, Dec. 21, when she was in
good health. She always spent thc
winter In bed, but was able to get up
without assistance. Leason, who had
been wltb her 26 years, waa absolutely
trustworthy and reliable.
The manager of the lxmdon and
Southwestern Bank In Klrkdale, Sydenham, said that Mrs. Wood, who only
came during the summer, had done
business at the bank. He had not
seen her since July 19. The servants
used to call at the bank, and the witness paid Leason $126 from the bank
on Jan. 10 for Mrs. Wood.
With the police he went to the
house, and they gained admission by
an open window at the back. They
went upstairs to Mrs. Wood's bedroom on the first floor, where she was
found lying unconscious on the floor
between the bed and the window.
Nothing In the room had been disturbed. She was placed on the bed, but
died a few minutes later.
Leason was found huddled up ln a
heap with her head under herchest.
The doors were unlocked and the shutters still closed. She had evidently
made an attempt to light a fire, but it
had gone out In Mrs. Wood's room
waa a glass which had contained
milk, and a tray waa lying on the floor
outside the door.
It was possible that Leason tripped
over a bag of onions ln the passage
and fell aa ihe wn about to go upstairs.
A police surgeon eald that when he
waa called to the uouse Mrs. Wood had
been dead about half an hour.   The

She was so lovely a picture as she

tbat Freckles could uot take bis eyes

wby should be? Anyway, If tbey really were tbe angel's friends probably
they were better accustomed to ber

"Must I go for tbe Bird Woman?"
sbe pleaded.
"Indiide, you must," answered Freckles firmly.
The sngel returned to say tbat tbe
Bird Woman was telling a story to

"Yon won't come In?" sbe pleaded.
"1 must not" said Frecklea   "1 am

"Then." said the angel, "we mustn't
go through tbe bouse, because it would
disturb the story, but 1 wsnt you to
come around the outside way to tbe

The nlgbt was warm and the angel
most beautiful and kind     A sort of
triple delirium of spirit, mind and body
seized upon Freckles and developed a
boldness all  unnatural.    He slightly
parted tbe heavy curtains that separated the conservatory trom tbe company
and  looked  In.    He almost stopped j
breathing.   He bad rend uf things like

"Do yon suppose heaven Is sny liner

The angel burst Into a laugh.
"Do you want to be laughing harder

very different, that of Mrs. George
Turner, one of the first settlers in
New Westminster. She hud come
there before the city wai called New
Westminster, travelling around Cape
Horn In 1859, after a seven months'
voyage from the old country. She
was always foremost in good works,
ever looking for nn opportunity of
doing good deeds. He could not help

Some might ask what was the good
of Captain Scott's self-sacrifice. Net

Asanredly the story was not ended
yet. Their lives had not been wasted.
Men had died for men in all ages.

lives lived after their deaths.
