If New Westminster had to fight an uphill fight for
existence against a dearth of natural resources and a
disadvantageous location there would be an excuse for
lack of heart displayed, but such is not the case here. This
place has to back it a solid foundation that might well be
the envy of towns twice and three times its size. It has
the wealth of the land at its doors, the riches of its industries within its borders and the rail and water routes to
deliver the products.
All it needs is the ginger and that lies within the citizens themselves.

Seattle women at the Grand opera
house yesterday. The league takes
the place of the Women's Co-operative
association, a temporary organization
formed recently with the same end in
The officers of the association, Mrs.
F. A. Martin, president, and Mrs. R.
E. Thatcher, secretary, however, will
] occupy threse positions with the
league. The new organizations, according to the by-laws which were adopted
by acclamation, will meet the first
Tuesday in every month.
The members were required to sign
a pledge that they will work individually and in co-operation with the
league to secure such remedial legislation as may be deemed necessary
by the organization to accomplish the
purpose for which it waa formed. One
hundred and ten women who signified
their intention of joining the association at the mass meeting ot December
8 will also be required to affix their
signatures to thia covenant.
Some time prior to the next gathering, President Martin will name the
members who will compose the
league'e investigating committee. This
committee, it was announced by Mrs.
Martin, who presided over the meeting, will conduct a rigid Inquiry Into
conditions on Weetern avenue. The
speaker admonished the women to proceed with proper care as the investigation is to prove one ot the biggest
problems they have ever undertaken
to solve.
Mrs. George A. Smith suggested
that the league appoint a committee
to confer with the Home Consumers'
league sa to the advisability of a
scheme which wonld make the latter
crganiiatton a sort of bureau of Information for the benefit ot the producer and consumer alike. The producer, having for aale strictly fresh
eggs, would supply his name and address to the Home Consumers' league
and In this msnner, Mrs. Smith urged.
the producer snd the consumer, now
separated by the middlemen, to the
alleged disadvantage of both, would
be brought Into close touch. Such s
committee will soon be named.

Toronlo, Der. 17. Thst agriculture
is stagnant and the rural districts are
being drained of their best to swell
the cities, was the statement of w
C. Good, master of the Dominion
Orange, In his speech at the 39th annual meeting of that association here
this morning.
He congratulated the association,
however, on tiie unanimity shown by
the farmers' organizations of the
prairie provinces with themselves in
presenting their claims at Ottawa recently. Ile thought they were on the
eve of a great  forward  movement.
Hitherto the vast resources of our
country, nay. even the lives and character of its people have been exploited and v/asted In order to make possible the enrichment and aggrandizement of the few.
"Signs   are   not   wanting   that   new
life  la beginning  to  make Itefilf  felt.
Let  us   fan   the  feeble  flames  before,
which greed and oppression will ulti-1
mately wither away.

in Ih? cities to whose love of ostentation, commerce and industry are
now pandering. Enervated and miserable specimens of humanity rush
about the country in great cars,
flaunting their wealth in our faces.

upon our fields."
He thought agriculture insufficient
reward, Tiie burdens of tariff and
dear transportation fall on the fanners. As remedies Mr. Cood suggested
tha adolition of protective tariffs;
ceising to allow the unearned increment in land values to be appropriated by individuals; modernizing our
political machinery to secure a cleaner democracy; organizing our industries upon a co-operative basis for mutual service, noi profits; adapt our
schools to our country's needs.

Montreal. Dec. 17.--"In view of tht
highly (Magraceful conduct of a group
of McOill students, on theatre night
the corporation of McOill university
hereby passes a resolution of censure,
expressing Its abhorrence of such
conduct. In tbe interests, not only of
the orderly elements among tho sin-
dem hmiy, bul also in lh" interests of
' .���* well-w'lgbers '<!' the university in
genl ml."
This  resolution     was    iniaiiiii:
i irrled at  the lasi meeting of thi
pi,rat Iou       Principal      Peterson
li i
Dr  Morse, on behalf of the commit
morals and disclplin
treal to Saint Elzear, it was returned
by Quay, who said he had not anther
Ized his wife to purchase It, The
company then sued him. and took the
action here, becaits: (luay's wife bad
made an election of domicile in Montreal in the written order she gave lo
the commercial traveler.
The company's contention was that
Guay's wife was acting for ber husband nml that Ihis being the case, he
was responsible. He, however, disclaimed all responsibility and pointed
out that he dealt only in groceries
and candles antl had a very small
Btock. It could not be presumed, acoordlng to blm, that he had authorized
-iis wife to go Into an entirely new
line ami to buy nearly as much Jewelry as his grocery stock was worth.
Thia reasoning the Judge found good,
and he ruled that Guay's wife, not
] hei ii,-.- authorized tu luy something
I entirely out of the ordinary line of her
1 husband's business, was nol auihor-
ized to make an election of domicile
In Montreal for him. It was accordingly decided that, the aetloi ought to
have been entered i.i the Beauce district and not in Montreal,
.Numerous witnesses were heard to
prove the facts mentioned above and
