Comet   to   New   Westminster   from
Prince  Rupert���Pleasing Ceremony  Last Night.
The Joe Angelo appeal has been
thrown out by the appeal court al Victoria and the man who was convlctel
a few weeks ago on six counts of rioting, etc., at Extension last August,
when much property was destroyed
and a temporary reign of terror prevailed, will now, ln all likelihood have
to face his sentence. All the judges
sitting concurred   lu   the  decision.
Angelo was held by the crown to
have heen one of the leading spirits
in the lawlessness which culminated
at Extension ln the burning of the
homes of about 13 of the non-union
miners, acts which were characterized a couple of days ago from the
bench by the honorable Justice Morrison as "unjustifiable and atrocious."
The convicted man, who is an Italian.
held the position of Italian organizer
for the United Mine Workers of America and was engaged In District 2S,
the Vancouver island coal fields, when
the labor troubles broke out there last
In the appeal taken lo Victoria In
his behalf, which yesterday morning
was thrown out. sixteen points were
raised by the defence of which 15
were thrown out at tbe first hearing,
the court reserving judgment on tbe
sixteenth. This last mentioned objection arose out of the admission
during the trial of the deposition of I
former Provincial Constable llannay.
Since Hannays' evidence was taken
at the preliminary bearing he has absconded and when last heard from
waB in tho United States a month or
���ic before the Angelo trial.
The defence maintained that great
enough effort had not been made to
find Hannay and bring him back to
give evidence and that it was not
clear enough that Hannay was beyond the jurisdiction of the court in a
forefrgn country. The court, however,
viewed the matter otherwise and supported the trial judge in his ruling
that Hannay's evidence was adhiin-

Presbyterian church, Prince Hupert,
was last night inducted into the pastorate of St. Andrew's, made vacant
by the resignation of Itev. J. S. Henderson six months ago.
Rev. J. W. Woodslde, of Mount
Pleasant church, Vancouver, moderator of the presbytery, presided and
there was a large attendance of members of the presbytery and of the congregation.
After the opening exercises the last
inducted pastor    in    the    presbytery,
Rev. A. C. Cameron,    of    Henderson
church, Burnaby, preached the induc-
! tion   sermon   from   the  text,   "Leave
thy gift  before the altar."    Mr. Cameron said that church-going was only
a small  part    of worship,    that    the
righting of wrong done was more important    and    took    precedence    of
church-going.   The church is not contained within  four walls, but  In    the
I broader spirit that goes outside    and
I finds suffering souls to help.
"It is a good thing to get this religion out of doors once in a while,
reaching people that do not come to
church. If people do not come to
church let us go out after them," he
Formally Inducted.
Following Mr. Cameron's sermon
the moderator of the presbytery
questioned Rev. Mr. Kerr, and the
congregation in regular form and satisfactory replies having been received, declared Mr. Kerr regularly
inducted into the pastoral charge of
the congregation.
Address to Minister.
The address to the minister was
given by Rev. M. Gordon Melvin, pastor of St. Stephen's, and a college
friend of Rev. Mr. Kerr. He congratulated the congregation on securing a minister of Mr. Kerr's stamp,
whom he felt sure would have a moat
successful pastorate, and said he waa
glad to have him here as a colleague
and friend.
Mr. Melvin then spoke of the duties
of pastors In visiting members of the
congregation, in proclaiming the unsearchable riches of God, in study and
In prayer, and concluded with the
hope that tbe new minister would
bring great gladness to the congregation and city.
Feel  Better.
Rev, R. J. Wilson, pastor of St. Andrew's, Vancouver, and interim moderator of the congregation, spoke stating that he already saw a distinct
change for the better In the appearance of the congregation, there were
more out and they looked happier and
relieved that they now bad a settled
They bad good reason to be congratulated en their choice, he said,
and spoke of tlie-ir duty to assist their
pastor by coming early to church assisting in the worship, help in bis
teaching, and advised them not to
fritter away his time by seeking his
aid in small and unimportant details,
but help blm in his pastoral work,
and pray for bim.
Mr. Wilson concluded with a reference to his six moiihs acquaintance
with the congregation while acting
as moderator, expressing the pleasure il had given bim to become acquainted with so many of its members.
At the conclusion of the service
those of the congregation present had
an opportunity of meeting Mr. Kerr,
being introduced by members of the
Tender Reception.

Efforts to Save Lives of Passengers on  Doomed Ship.
Philadelphia. Feb. 12. -What means
Captain Kdward E. Johnston of the
steamship Monroe took to avoid the
collision with the steamship Nantucket
off the Virginia coast, in which 41
persons were lost, what efforts he
made to save lives and his conduct
from the time the ships struck to the
time he went aboard the other vessel, were among questions inquired
into today at the trial of Captain Berry
ot the Nantucket, who is chargol
with   negligence.
Captain Johnson said that Immediately after the collision he ordered
the other officers of the ship to get
all passengers on the boat deck as
the ship, was sinking. Because of the
heavy list to starboard, only two of
the boats could be launched. One
was commanded by himself, he said,
and the other by the chief officer.
Captain Johnson admitted he left
the ship with the knowledge there
were other persons on the vessel, but
that he wanted to go around the
stern to the port side, wheie he could
save them.. The starboard rail was
under water. In his boat were .lames
O'Connell of Washington, a negro woman and several of hi* crew. He saw-
no one on deck when be quit the ship.
On the way round to the port side
of the sinking Monroe, Captain Johnson said he saw a raft with four men
on it and took them off. Altogether
his bout saved 28 or 29 persons. Asked
if it would not bave been better for
him to no about the ship maintaining
discipline and giving orders, Captain
Johnson replied: "If I had walked
around the deck seeing what others
wen- doing, there would have been
about 3(1 more people dead."
To questions why he did not cut
loose all the life rafts, the witness replied be was busy trying to get the
boats away. Every person he saw on
the decks or In the water, he said,
had on a life preserver with the exception  of  himself.
The Nantucket stood a quarter of a
mile astern of the Monroe, the witness said, and did "remarkably well"

Ottawa, Feb. 12.���"We find that the
Transcontinental railway commission,
the Grand Trunk Pacific railway, and
those having charge of the construction of the railway did not consider
it desirable cr necessary to practice
or encourage economy in the construction of this road.
"We find that, without including
the money which was unnecessarily
expended in building the railway east
of the St. Lawrence river, forty million dollars at least was needlessly
expended in the building of this road."
Such is the conclusion arrived at by
F. P. Gutellus and J. Lynch Staunton,
K.C., the commissioners appointed by
the present government to inquire
into the cost of construction of the
National Transcontinental railway.
The report was tabled in the commons today by Hon. Frank Cochrane,

It is evidentjn the news received from all sources in
Great Britain that Winston Churchill, first lord of the admiralty and in many respects the outstanding figure of the
imperial cabinet, is playing a game, not the party game to
which his colleagues in the house are committed, but a
game of his own and speculation is rife at to what will be
the result of the play.
Some who have studied the young first lord closely
say that he is waiting for the opportune moment to cut lose
from the Liberal ranks and lead a party of his own; some
aver that he is biding the lime when there will come a split
with Asquith when he can fight for the premier place in
the government, while there are those who would not be
surprised to see him join the Unionists. Whatever their
differences of opinion on Churchill's intentions, all agree
that he is planning something.
Churchill has not been comfortable on the Liberal government benches. He has taken issue with Lloyd George
on the navy question and it is known that he has never
agreed with the government's policy of recognizing the
Redmond balance of power in the matter of home rule
for Ireland. Therefore, it may be assumed that leadership
of the Liberal party is not among the young first lord's
As to the chance of his joining the Unionists, that is
almost impossible. He is too much of a free trader and
holds too little regard for tariff reform to allow of his taking any prominent part with the Conservatives. The
Unionist pace is altogether too slow for the man who is
not satisfied with the gait of the Reformers.
If, as everyone believes, Churchill is planning a political game, the most likely solution is that he aims at the
leadership of a party of his own.
Considering all the troubles of both great parties in
the old land, the time seems ripe for a new, full-blooded
political line-up and Churchill has the qualities of a leader.
He is capable; he proved that point in his handling of the
affairs in the board of trade and home offices, while, as
head of the admiralty, he is regarded as one of the most
efficient of all first lords. He is magnetic, is eloquent, has
courage, tact, administrative ability and self-confidence.
With his record behind and his ambitions before him,
Churchill should be able to draw strong supporters from
both sides of the mother of parliaments in the formation
of a new party, which would more closely agree with the
progressive spirit of the times than either of the two older
political wings.

Old,     Blind    and     Penniless.    Henry
Church  Lives Alone in
Squalid Hut.
The Huntsville, Out., Forester, tells
a pitiful tale of povery of Henry
("lurch who lives in Sinclair town-
.-hip,   Parry   Sound   district.
Churoh is elose to seventy years,
and for the past two years has resided alone in the little hut on his
farm. Recently he had become al
most blind, and is practically unable
to do anything. Up to the present
the old man has steadfastly refused
to leave the farm, but is now persuaded to go anywhere where he will receive proper care an flatten: ion. He
has a son and married daughter living in Huntsville, but neither are able*
[inanolally to do much fo rhim. Unless Church is taken away from his
remote Sinclair home he will die of
starvation or cold. The wife is in
the states, and has, for some years
past, refused to live on the old farm.
She is, howevei. still interested in
ber husband, and. it is said, has from
time to time sent money. She visited the old farm two years ago.
Sinclair is, of course, unorganized,
and no appeal for relief can be made
to tlu* township. Under our system
i f charity, this unfortunate man can
���i.iiiii no aid from municipality or individual institutions. The government
if Ontario makes no provision for
liis case, except the common   jail.
The Forester, commenting on the
case, says:
"The case recalls once more, with
almost sickening emphasis, the years
ol' wasted effort in seeking a solution
to meet the crying need of a house of
���(iu'.'.- in this district. While the district and government quibble over
the division of tin* paltry financial
responsibility involved, obi men and
women, who have labored their lives
away in an effort to establish homes,
and provide for their families, are left
! to do without provision being mail.' for
-ven decent comforts.

Supremacy in Balkans Is Live Question Once  More���Troops Are
Being Massed.
Vienna, Austria. Feb. 12.- Turkey is
preparing for all eventualities, her
troops nre being concentrated on
strategical points ready to be poured
either into the Balkans or sent to oc-
cuj Chios and Mytelene, as the case
may require.
What developments the immediate
future may bring forth no one can
conjecture, but it is only too certain
Ihat Turkey is contemplating warlike
steps and that the policy which made
Iht nominate Knver lley war minister
is being followed up by other steps,
calculated to restore her supremacy
in   the  Balkans.
Bhe appears to have abandoned the
conciliatory attitude which she was
prepared to take up recently, and her
promise to accommodate herself to
the views of the great powers, appears
to be only another of those pledges,
always given so readily by Turkey in
the past and as readily broken.
Balkans Grouping.
The Balkan powers are grouping
tin nselves again, but somewhat differently fro mthelr usual method.
Turkey and Bulgaria will stand to-
I ether, it is believed, and Austria will
favor these two countries, but it is
thought that Servia will be inclined
rather to side with Bulgaria thin with
Greece, Salonika will again become
the apple of contention. The rivalry
as to who should possess t'.ii.-, great
commercial port was always keen,
and the present settlement giving it
to Greece does not seem final by any
means, Bulgaria covets it, and Servia
desiree. it with all her might.
Some arrangement might, possibly
1 * made between Servia and Bulgaria
by which Bulgaria receives her Connie*, men. Bulgarian Macedonians, with
their territory, and in return Salonika
would   be   apportioned   to   Servia,   if
she can conquer it. The Sorbs learned
a lesson last autumn, which as Impressed Itself upon them with extraordinary force, of the undesirability
of having disaffected tribes on their
frontiers. The Albanian revolt cost
the country a large sum of money. The
Serbs feel that anything of the kind
must be avoided at all costs ln future.
A warlike population within the borders of the country, ready to start Into
uproar at any moment and on any pretext has taught the Serbs that their
territory should be Inhabited by
Sout.li Slavs, or people of a Slav race.
The Macedonians are Bulgars for the
most part, and the same trouble with
irregular bands, which occurred periodically under Turkish rule, is likely to repeat itself in the near future.
Servia  and  Aliens.
Therefore it may be taken that Servia is most eager to get rid of her
alien peoples. The land which they
occupy is of little worth, from a military or strategical point of view,
Whether the boundary runs a little
more east or west is a trifle compared
with the exhaustion of the treasury
at Belgrade when troops must be fitted out for mountan warfare or for
Chasing irregulars over rough, hilly
ground in Macedonia. Whether Servia would be willing to pursue the
same policy in regard to Albania is
not certain, but she would be wise
to do FO.
A people mainly composed of Slavs
is comparatively strong, as there is no
disaffection among them, but a coun-j
try composed of various races living in
districts apart one from another, as is
the case in  Austria and  in  Hungary,!
for instance, is weak indeed. A mingling of races makes for strength, but':
when the streams run parallel with-,
out   mixing,   internal   bickerings   and,
squabbllngs on race questions weaken
the whole country. Servia will do well
ii she avoids this pitfall ami pursues
a jiolicy  which   leaves her one  homogenous whole, her population ready to
face the world  as one man.

Pride  Humbled.
Capital was not long ago in a standoffish, annoy-me-not attitude.
Now 11 is crawling off its perch

It may be even that P.uropean capital, to which reference is particularly
marie, is a little anxious for fear it
will fail to get itself employed before
ghosts which were really vaporous
and unearthly, gliding, transparent,
mysterious. Macbeth wilted In terror at tbe appearance of Banquo's
spook, and everyone declared that
the entrance and general "get-up" of
this member of the spirit world was
the most ingenious and impressive
ever seen at a theatre.
1 think it was Charles Kean who
first resorted to illusion to make a
stage ghost a little transparent. Wben
be produced "Macbeth" at the old
Princess's Theatre, he manufactured
a contrivance which allowed Banquo's
ghost to appear through a transparent column.
Later on, when Mrs. Ann Rad
cllffe's "Romance of the Forest" was'
staged at Covent Garden Theatre,
those responsible for its production
arranged that '.he spook In the piece
should be seen by the audience
through a gauze of bluish-grey color,'
so that the too corporeal effect of a
live actor might be removed. Follet,
the clown, "celebrated for his eating
of carrots in the pantomimes," was
the shade, and be wore a closely-fitting suit of gre>�� material, sewn together in the form of armor, and in
this he floated across the stage like
a shadow behind a sheet of gauze,
much to the delight of the spectators.
Wben the old playhouse In Drury
Lane opened, in 1794, with a performance of "Macbeth," Banquo's
ghost was omitted. Although Mr.
Kemble's acting was fine enough to
mike the audience almost believe
that they really uid see the ghost,
the people were not satisfied uniil
tbe system they had been used to was
re-adopted, and Banquo's shade allowed to trot bodily across the boards

court this morning Dr. Green testified
to having dressed seven or eight

been caused by the dog's teeth.
After hearing the accused's plea of

to three months' hard labor and ordered the dog destroyed.
With a rejoicing host of friends and
relatives about them Mr. and Mrs.
George Cunningham, Sr., residents of
New Westminster for a quarter of a
century, celebrated the passing of the
fiftieth year of their marriage, at a
very pleasant reception held at their
home, 901 St. Andrew's street on Wednesday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham were the recipients of many
hearty congratulations on account of
the important event and many beautiful gifts were received both from Individuals with whom they had become acquainted during their happy
married life and various organizations
with which they were closely associated.
The following address presented on
behalf of the congregation of the
Sixth Avenue Methodist church over
the Sunday school of which Mr. Cunningham presided 20 years as superintendent is indicative of the sentiments
expressed by the friends of so faithful servants to the community as Mr.
and Mrs.* Cunningham::
Mr. and Mrs. George Cunningham:
Dear Friends and Beloved in the
Lord���We rejoice with you that the
Loving Father lias preserved you both
to see your golden wedding day.
The sacred love which has blessed
your home for the past 50 years has
extended and enriched your work in
the Sunday school and official boards
of our church. It is a joy to your fellow workers in Sixth Avenue that you
have been permitted to realize your
fond hopes and earnest desires in the
development of noble character in
Christian men am) women who will
carry on tbe work so dear to your
own hearts..
For this cause we bring you this
token of our love wishing you both
many years of continued happiness
among us. In behalf of the church and
W. S. A. CRUX, B.A.
Superintendent Casselman read the
address, which was coupled with the
presentation of a beautiful bouquet.
In addition to having been identified
with the progress of the city during
their king period of residence Mr. and
Mrs. Cunningham have interested
themselves In practically every moral
and social movement initiated for the
benefit of the community at large.
They came through the disastrous fire
which years ago almost completely destroyed the business section of the
city and had the misfortune to be
twice burned out. Mr. Cunningham
has been a member of the Masonic order and Is a charter member of King
Solomon lodge and past worshipful
master. He has also been a member
of the Oddfellows since 1870 and is
past noble grand of Royal City lodge
No, 3. He is now a member of the
trustee board of Sixth Avenue Methodist church and occupies other offices of responsibility  iu  the church.
Mrs. Cunningham is a member of
the Rebekahs of over 40 years standing and is also a charter member of
Royal City chapter No. 7 Order of the
Eastern Star. From each of these
lodges Mrs. Cunningham was last

The family home was prettily decorated with yellow tulips and violets
for the occasion. Carnations, ferns
and daffodills  were also used in  the

also present and Mr. Richard Cullen
sang a number of songs.

Long  Career.
The B. X. has had a long career and
its course has been inseparably bound
up in the history of the province ami
the development of the Cariboo country; and old timers whose reminiscences include many storys of thrilling episodes in connection with its
earlier existence will no doubt view
with a natural regret the passing of
the company whose name k. familiar
throughout the whole world. The
R. X. was started in 1862 by F. J. Barnard, for many years a member (lithe bouse of commons and the father
of the sitting member for tho city of
Victoria. It carried the first letters
ever distributed by mail in tho Cariboo when the charge for delivery was
$2 per issue. In 1864 the charter ul
the Hrltish Columbia Express company was granted and the concern was
carried on by Mr. Barnard and his
associates until 1886 when tho business was disposed of to Steven Ting-
ley and a Mr. Henderson. Mr. Tlngley
who had been connected with the
company since Its Incorporation, lost
the mall contract in the fall o' 1897
anil then disposed of his interest to
Charles Miller and John Shields and
Mr. Gilgore of Toronto, who carried
on the work for several years during
which time J. B. Leighton, now of
Savona, was the superintendent. Ten
years ago Mr. Leighton retired and
was succeeded by Willis J. We8t of
Toronto, who is still superintendent ol
the company,
Steven Tlngley is but a memory, a
name associated w-ith super-excellence of driving, with hairbreadth escapes, and with one poignantly distressing tragedy, for 40 years ago
while be was handling the ribbons
the coacb crashed down a precipice
on the dangerous road and bis wife,
who was a passenger, w;is killed. Done
are the old days, and now the modern
equipment is on the eve of transfer
to the new company whose directors,
J, ('. Shield and J. T, Robinson, secured the mail contract for tho district in October last.

the  Indiana   middleweight,    defeated
"Sailor"   Bd.   Petroskey   today   in   20
rounds  of  fighting  at  Vernon  arena.
It  was Clabby's  second  victory  over
the  former  bluejacket  and   he   went
into  the  ring a  big  favorite  but his
chances were no more than even by |
the   time   the   12th   round   had   been j
reached.    He could not stop the sailor
and stand off and box as he desired, j
and  Petroskey landing an occasional i
smash or  swing,  badly  damaged  his j
mouth  and  eyes.    Clabby regained  a '
lead   after  the  12th,  and  seemed   to |
have the sailor a trifle distressed  in I
tho last  round.
Both men fought viciously and frequently lost all thought of science or i
defence   and   clinched     and     banged j
away  at  each  other.    Clabby  at  the
beginning removed his front teeth, to
save a golden dental bridge from dam- j
age and went Into the battle with his
lower   lip   close   up   under   his   nose. ,
Petroskey bore few scars of the
battle out of the ring, but the decision
went against him purely on the. points
scored . by his clever opponent.

of the agricultural instruction act. the
agreement with each of the provinces
and a statement of the appropriations
under the act for the present year and
the work made possible thereby.
In his "foreword" the Hon.  Martin
Burrell, minister of agriculture, points
out that the magazine is not to en- ;

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

Prederleton, .\. it., Feb. 12.���Some or
the most important features of the
annual report of James Gilchrist, superintendent of Imiiiirgratlon for New
Brunswick, as (submitted to the minister of agriculture, Hon. 11. V. Lau*
dry, are found In  these excerpts:
The total number of settlers placed
through this office during the past
years was 1,440, divided us follows:
Single men     007
.Married   couples       14K
Children    .   33X
Domestics    -01
These might be divided into three
general classes���those who bought
farms, those tailing employment and
those  seeking employment only.
I   sent   out   early   In   the   year  two
thousand   application  forms  for  farm !
help to members of agricultural societies and   received  about  1,200  replies]
for all     kinds of help, 960 of  which
were filled.
A large number of these, applications
were tor boys and giils. und while
on this subject I would urge the establishment of a distributing home for
Ibis class Of Bottlers, ill charge of a I
competenl man and matron, where
the children would be taaught tarm
work and then distributed to their
homes. There is a growing opinion
among those responsible for the immigration policy in Australia that, boys
are the only kind of mule immigrants
. that it in worth while for a govern-
' men: to assist.
In New South Wales there is a patriotic Jfunil, known as the Dread-
i nought fund, which is being spent in
i bringing boys out from Bnland to be
! placed on the land. These boys are
sent, on arrival, to a government train-
; ing farm, where they are given In-
; structlon before being sent to ordl-
��� nary farms, and it is proving a great
: success.

"Assuming that the O. T. P. railway will commence to pay interest on
