Secrecy Maintained as to His Removal
from Hotel in New York City���
Special Car.
New York, Jan. IS.���Sir James
Whitney, the premier of Ontario, who
has been ill of heart disease at the
Manhattan hotel since December 14,
left for Toronto tonight on a special
car attached to the. New York Central
train leaving Grand Central station at
S:05 p.m.
On  the  train  with  him   are  Lady
Whitney, Dr. R. A. Pyne, minister of
education and family physician to Sir
James,     and     Horace     Walls,     the
premier's  private secretary.    Today's
examination of the patient, whose life
has been despaired of at various times
since his arrival here, convinced Dr.
Pyne  and   Dr.   Herman   M.   Biggs,  of
this city, who has been the consulting
physician in the case, that tbe patient
could stand the removal to his home.
Wasted   Strength   Returns.
The decided   improvement   In   the
Ontario premier was apparent yesterday  when  the physicians made their
I usual    morning    examination.     They
j found the heart in such a   condition
! that for a moment   they   had   some
I doubts of the result ot their work, and
I went over the patient again.   The re-
j suit was an optimistic bulletin, but at
ithe same time Dr. Pyne was careful
I not to commit himself to any    state-
��� ment of probable action based on the
1 improved condition of his patient as
be had been disappointed lust a week
ago when conditions seemed as favorable.
I    Sir James took   nourishment    well
.yesterday and   his    wasted   Btrength
��� sesmed to return quickly with the improvement    In    the    organic   trouble
j which has been the cause of anxiety.
He has lost a great deal cf   his splendid    vitality;     he    has still  reserved
strength for a good fight against    the
enemy that threatened to   cut    short
his  career,  and  he   has  justified   the

The defeat of so many of the old guard of reeves and

of all the newcomers. A number of the men who failed
to get enough support at the polls had to carry the handicap of a hard-times year. Lack of work, scarcity of money
and high cost of living w'll go farther to wreck an administration, be it Dominion, provincial or municipal, than almost anv other cause, and the men who went before the

to the adjoining public hall where a I

characterized their campaign during j
the past few weeks. Reeve McGregor j
and Hugh M. Fraser both emphasized!
the fact that personalities had been
tabooed, that tlieir friendship was just
as strong, if not stronger than hereto-;
fore, and that both had fought a fight
which had been kept clean and free i
from questionable mudslinging tactics.
That the electorate appreciated this
mode of procedure was emphatically :
endorsed by Lhe applause, as each re- j

L. E. Marmont, the reeve-elect, resides
in the vicinity of Malllardvllle. Mr.
Marmont waH much pleased at the result of the polls, this being the third
and only successful time he has essayed for the reeveship, opposing .las.
Mars on one occasion and the retiring
mayor, Peter Barth, on another.
Mr. Marmont had a majority of 56 in
Malllardvllle, the French people supporting him almost to a man. In Burquitlam he had a majority of 37 over
his opponent while in the east end,
where the vote was the lightest, Councillor Atkins had a majority of one.
The majority was one of the largest
ever given a reeveship candidate in
the history of Coquitlam.
W'.ien the results were announced
the victors and vanquished adjourned
to the Burquitlam Agricultural hall
where a dance was in progress in celebration of the occasion. Councillor R.
J. ('. Atkins, the defeated reeveship
candidate, took his defeat very gracefully, in a brief speech stating that
although the electors in their wisdom
had selected his opponent to lead the
administration of 1914, his interests
were still in Coquitlam and it would be
a pleasure for him to assist the new
council. All the successful candidates
returned thanks for the support accorded them. Retiring Reeve Peter
Barth and Councillor Ewen .Martin
also spoke, following which a very
pleasant evening was spent, the dancing concluding at 12 o'clock.

Taxes nre a superior lien upon all mortgaged property. Real
estate may be sold for taxes,
leaving the careless holder of a
bond and mortgage with no security. Insurance may be allowed to lapse; then, should a
fire occur the mortgage holder
has only the bare ground security. Methodical attention
absolutely averts these dangers.
The maker of the mortgage
may default in his interest payments. Hero again experience,
aud skill ate needed to properly
conduct a foreclosure. Much
money has been lost and many
titles have been Impaired
through lack of skill and ev-
perlence in such matters.

A lawyer in Portland. Ore., was n.v
signed to defend a Chinaman accused
of murder. He bad n Tnlk with Hit
official interpreter, who In turn had
talked with the tunn In jail. IInd that
earnest person assured the lawyer that
the prisoner was Innocent; that nt the

went to the jail to huve a talk with
the prisoner.
The official Interpreter held a long
conversation, the lawyer giving blm
the questions. It seemed all straight
und regular. The interpreter Insisted
that the prisoner had a perfect alibi.
It was some weeks before tbe ense
was called, and shortly before that
time the lawyer wanted another talk
with lhe accused man. The otlicinl Interpreter had disappeared, and so he
secured for his Interpreter this time a
Cblni)man who had been his cook nnd
who talked fairly good English. They
went to the Jail.
"Tell him," he Instructed the Interpreter, "that I want blm to relnte to
me again lhe exact circumstances, all

"Hold on!" yelled the lawyer. "That
can't be true. Ask him again. According to tbe other story he was miles

There was another long conversation
between the Interpreter nnd the prisoner. Then the Interpreter said: "Oh.

"But," Insisted the lawyer, "I was

It is expected that Sir Wilfrid

Premier Bold n. The Liberals will
have an amendment to move, but it
is not known tonight whether it will
be movfcd by the opposition leader or
by one of his lieuftnants at a later
stage of th<: debate. The probabilities
urb that  Sir Wilfrid  will move it.
It is possible that there may be two
amendments, one relating to Sir Wilfrid's free food policy, the other to
the lack of any reference in ihe
speech from the throne to the matter
of naval defence. It is understood
why the government decided to not

Torontos Win at Quebec���Ottawas Repeat at Montreal���Ontarios Easy
for Canadiens.
Two big surprises were pulled off
in the N II. A. games of Saturday
night when the Torontos journeyed
to Quebec where they trounced the
Stanley cupholders 94, while the Ottawas deteated the Wanderers on the
Montrealers' ice by a scon* of 9-1.
The Canadiens had an easy time defeating Jimmy .Murphy's Ontarios in
Toronto, the final score being 9-3,
Stanley Cuppers Lose.
The game at Quebec was uf the sensational variety, the Toiontos maintaining an even pace with Quebec in
the first periods and held a one goal
lead Wfoen the centre session ended.

Irom then on there was nothing to it

,    Poor Game at Toronto.
At Toronto the Canadiens had little
difficulty   in   snowing   under   the  Ontarios,  who appear to be tin* weakest
sextette In the circuit.    Lalonde. who
waa  carried  off  the   ice   in  the  last
game against Quebec after coming in
contact with "Had" Joe Hall, failed to
turn  out.    Herbert   was  the  star  for,
the Ontarios, the young custodian doing some phenomenal work between I
the nets.
Rough House at Montreal.
A heavy body-check Into the boards j
which   broke   Odle   Clegbora's   collar
bono, started a slump among the Wan*
derers In the first period  from  which
they never recovered, the Ottawas taking   Lie   game   even   though   playing
away from home.    Only one goal was
scored by Sam l.ichteniiein's crew and
that in tiie first period.    In the second i
and  third sessions it was all Ottawa.

showing while ciint Benedict between

Hamilton, Jan. IS.��� Mayor Allan
takes the stand that too much publicity is not going to do the city any
good in connection with the unemployed question. He disapproves of a
gnat deal of publicity being giv;n to
proposed mass meetings or parades of
the unemployed, and points out that
if a parade was held in Hamilton, two-
thirds of the marchers would not b;
out of jobs, but would be attracted by
curiosity only.
The mayor admits^that thsre is a
difference of opinion about the cooperative plan suggested by him this
week. Some people have written him,
disapproving of the idea, while others
commend it. John Lennox is one of
the latter, and yesterday promised
the mayor to give his aid. If the idea
goes through, Mr. Lennox will likely
be en tha central committee.
"I intend to consult the manufac-1
turers and ascertain their views," is
the mayor's comment. "A great deal
will depend on how they view It. It
Bhould be explained that workiugmen
will not be the only ones who might
contribute lu or 25 cents per week towards aid for the unemployed. 1 ex-
! pect the merchants and the citizens
jwould respond liberally.
"It should not be taken for granted
jthat the city Is not doing anything.
[The charity office Is besieged everyday, and aid is given when circumstances warrant it. Between 3 and 6
I o'clock yesterday, 19 houses were
I visited. 1 am pleased'to say that a
I prominent woman of Hamilton is giv-
! ing her aid in this respect."

Man  Arrested in  Spokane  Makes  Deposit and Withdraws Amount
Spokane, Jan. IS.���Henry D. Goldberg, alias Shackleford T. Miller, with

National bank under false pretenses.

books to different tellers, while one
relieved the other at luncheon. Goldberg is alleged to have attempted the
same thing at the Exchange National
bank and the Union Trust and Savings hank, but was foiled.
Under the name of Miller he also
opened savings accounts at the three
banks.    He withdrew thn money later.

securing legal advice. Barnes, and
Rotchford / were confident Gold big
was the 3ame man. They were ilis
cussing the matter at the bank on
their return when Goldberg entered
and offered to pay back the $17ii0, as
he slated, for his client, Miller. He
was placed under arrest and booked
at police headquarters. He gave his
age. as J4. his occupation that of an
attorney and his birthplace as New

the money the second time," said T

Three Birthday! a Year.
.There Is apparently plenty of fun for
the child In Sweden in tbe matter of
birthdays, but the parent can hardly
be expected to feel the same, for the
children there do not confine themselves
to one birthday, but they must have
three. Of course tbe first one Is the
real birthday, nnd the other two aru
those whose names the Swedish boy
or girl bears. For every day In the
year of the Swedish calendar has its
own separate name, besides the weekly names which other nations bave.
Sometimes If the parent gives the child
a Reeond name or a first one that cannot be found in the calendar, the child
loses out ou one birthday. And considerable protest must follow, too, when
the child becomes old enough to realize what lie is missing. In the German
calendar every day has a name also,
but the Sbservanee of these days Is
not at all common iu Ilie latter conn

Making One Dollar Do
the Work of Two
Your dollars vary in value according as they vary in purchasing
The man or woman who studies
advertising is able, frequently, to
make one dollar do the usual work
of two.
The experienced reader of advertis-
ments will always make a dollar
command a premium, that is, make
it buy more than the dollar of a

How much "above par'' are the
dollars in your pocket worth?

Watch the News Ads.
Have   you   ever   noted   how  an audience
yawns in the face of an uninspired speaker?
On the other hand, have you noted how an audience
will lean forward and grasp the chair arms when
the speaker reveals enthusiasm ?
Enthusiasm is the buoyant expression of truth. To
impart belief in anything, a man must believe it
deeply himself.    We call such a man an enthusiast.
This applies to the written word also ��� particularly
to advertisements. When the manufacturer really
believes in his wares, his enthusiasm will almost
inevitably find expression in Advertising. And enthusiasm will be contagious ��� his audience ��� the
readers of the newspaper���vyill, figuratively speaking,
���'lean forward and listen intently."
To be convincing an advertisement
must convey an unmistakable
impression of enthusiasm. This it
will only do when the article
advertised has inherent worth.
Thus we have:
Sincerity ���- Enthusiasm -- Advertising:
Three   mighty  forces,   close-linked.

Seattle     Mayor    Appoints     Forty-five
Additional   Patrolmen���Issues
Seattle) Jan. IS. -Seattle's police
force will be augmented beginning tomorrow morning by 45 additional
patrolmen to serve until March 1 ol
this year, unless otherwise ordered.
Tho increase is announced in a
proclamation issued by Mayor Cot**
terill yesterday, in which it is set
forth that the present police force is
Insufficient to deal with emergency
conditions now prevailing, (specially
in the matter of depredations in the
residence districts. This condition Is
further aggravated, the proclamation
reads, by the necessary withdrawal of
men from the regular force ordinarily
on residence district duty for special
service in the preservation of peace
and good order In other sections of
the city.
The mayor's action followed a
meeting of the finance committ: e of
the city council, the Team Owners'
association, the Enployers' association
and representatives of other business
interests. Mayor Cotterill told those
present that he believed he had done
the proper thing in bringing the appointment of additional patrolmen
squarely before thd city council, and
asserted that the legislative body was
the only one having power and
authority to take such action. He declared that tlnre was no emergency
and that the present carnival of crime
and Influx of the criminal element to
this city had occurred every winter
for several years. It was not an

Toronto, Jan. IS.���"We find that
Baby McFaul came to Its death at the
hands of Mrs. Konikoff, at 58 Beverley street, on January 5, from strangulation."
The above verdict was returned by
ths    jury    which    enquired   into the
death of Baby McFaul, one of the victims of the murder and  suicide case
which occurred in the house on Beverley street on the morning of January
5.   The child was killed by another inmate cf the house, who was supposed
to have  been insane, and  who  took
her own  life by    drinking    carbolic
���acid after she had murdered the child.
I    The evidence taken at the Inquest

when her two brothers, aged 2 and 3

she pulled a pan of boiling hot water
off a table, little Agnes Oien, 17
months old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Peter Oien, of Potlatch, Idaho, seems
pursued by a hoodoo in the form of
a fiery fate.

Sacred liear' hospital, where the
j child was bi. ught, had lo amputate
all four fltigers leaving only the
thumb. The flesh was burned completely away, leaving but the blackened bones on the hand. The arm, right
cheek and the top of the head were
also burned at this time, and skin
grafting, *.*,. th cuticle furnished by
the mother, was resorted to in order
to save the baby's life.
The second burn was a severe scald
of  the  left   arm  and hand,  but  skin

General Gregory asked me if 1 would

After an hour's talk with tbe general   over   crude   maps   of   the   vicinity

"Where are yon going now?" be
"We are going on a roundabout
course to rejoin our regiment."
I watched the general, holding my
breath in terror test be pursue his inquiries tu ii point beyond my knowledge, lie thought awhile, then asked
me to what corps I belonged. I knew
the names of several of the generals In
the Union front and named one of
them. Then my questioner asked me
to name my division and brigade commander, and I ������couldn't remember."
"Vou men are stragglers," be said In
reply, "and likely bent on pillaging or
some other reprehensible conduct. I
consider it my duty to send you back
to your command.''
Our hearts sank within us. Wben
returned to the regiment to which wo
claimed to belong we would be proved
impostors und our real identity would
come out. The officer had but a dozen men in his escort, but needed no
large force to send with us, for any
resistance would be mutiny, nud mutiny Is punishable with death. He detailed a corporal and four men to seo
that we returned to our command aud
rode on.
Had we not been iu the enemy's lines
with a halter banging over us the situation would have been laughable. Five
unsuspecting Confederates were Intrusted with guarding a dozen daring
men who would rather die by a bullet
than a rope. I said nothing to my men
uor they to me. We rode meekly between the corporal and two of bis men
in front of us and two bringing up the
rear. But by a look I signed to my
subordinates to remain submissive till
I should assume the initiative.
It behooved me to make a break for
life before being returned to our supposed commaud. I kept my eyes open
aud presently saw a large field of 4euts
a short distance ahead. On leaving
our guards we must go through a cornfield to a wood on the other side of tbe

The troopers were on blm. and my other nen bail got so far away that If I

"Wednesday fine weather prevailed, the vessel having drifted as far
north as latitude 18.111 and longitude
1116.35 west; Thursday the wind blew
a gale and continued until Jan. 12.
Whin Triangle Light was sighted at
4 p.m., it moderated hut the current
was rapidly carrying the vessel toward Haycock island, and at 2 p.m.
boti anchors, wltb 75 fathoms of
chain, were let go. and the vessel
was brought i,. a safe anchorage in
'���>!) fathoms of water, which saved the
Garms from piling up on the rocks
and  the drowning of all on board.
"During the severe storms which
had battered the vessel her life boats
were demolished. One of them was
patched up and in it I and five of tho
crew left the vessel to reach Triangle
Light to scud for assistance. After
tattling with a high sea for nine hours
the boat's light was sighted at 8 p.m.
by the Snohomish, which after being
informed that the Gollah had picked
up the schooner, was searching for
the lifeboat. The men were chilled
in their cramped positions and were
half famished. We were taken on the
Snohomish and cared for, the Goliah
being notified  of the rescue."
Portland. Ore., Jan. IS - The steamer

��� Numerous Incidents.
The picturesque march through j
American territory of so many foreign
soldiers and women with their baggage abounded with' incidents. The
bir'i of a child, the death of several
wounded soldiers, the search for water
in tile desert, the constant straggling,
away from the line of march, and the
rounding up again of scores of the
refugees, were some of the difficulties
wilh which the United States cavalrymen, commanded by Major McNamee,
had to contend. Tbe Mexicans, guarded virtually as prisoners, outnumbered the escorting American soldiers
ten to one.
Gcant Supplies.
Since they were routed from Ojinaga
by   General   Villa's  rebel   forces   ten
days ago, the Mexican soldiers havi
.had  only  scant  food   supplies.
Their march ol 67 miles to the nearest railway station after they had
been disarmed and placed prisoners by
the American troops was made possible by the estimate of the three
camps provided en route. Bui these
camps were supplied with limited .rations because all food'* Buffs and water
had to be carried by* wagon from
Maria. Many of the foreigners were
poorly clad and without blankets so
that suffering at night was Intense.
Social   Evil
and   Method    of    Dealing
Traffic  in  Southern
Ncw York, Jan. 18.���After a year
of personal investigation in eleven
European countries, Abraham Flex-
iu r, commissioned by the bureau of
social hygiene, of which John D.
Rockefeller, jr., is chairman', has
como to the conclusion that police
regulation of the social evil in Europe
is a failure and is rapidly dying out.
Stringent . legislation, on the other
hand, prBfetically has stamped out thi
traffic In girls, and segregation, he
finds, is non-existent anywhere in
England or the continent.
These views, upsetting beliefs widely current in this country as to tha
status of commercialized vice In the
old world, are set forth In a 450-page
volume issued today. '
"Sex education," says Dr. Flexner,
"is the subject of as much controversy
in Europe as in this country. Despite
the prevalent notion to the contrary,"
he writes, "the subject of sex education is as yet very large in the realm
of theory or controversy."
Explaining the decline in the systematic traffic in girls, the writer details successive steps In legislation
due to popular agitation in lale years,
and asserts that the entrapping and
Immuring of a girl may be classed as
111** exc ptlon, like a mysterious murder or robbery.
Crew Rescued.
Baltimore, Md., Jan. IS.���Rescued
from their Ice-coated sinking ship after lhey had given up all hope, the IS
members of the crew of the five masted schooner Fuller Palmer arrived today aboard Ihe steamer Marina. The
rescue was made by the Marina early
Thursday morning about 154 miles
southeast of Cape Cod. Since Monday morning when the gale had so
battered the schooner that she began
to leak, the crew fought to keep her
afloat. With sails whipped Into
shreds by the wind, and rigging broken
and so heavily coated with ice that it
could not be handled, the Fuller Palmer had practically drifted at the mercy
of the raging seas.
