I Francisco De L* Barra, who was
Mexican ambassador herein th��. ��M��

known to have been opposed to Inter

; while here that Mexico, it ever given
{a fair opportunity to solve Hs prob

' part, would at all times choose tbe
'right man for president.
As provisional president, pending
the election which placed Madero li>

De Ia Barra, refused to be a candl

of Steveston and Mr. Stuart Wade,
Mr. Ed. Goulet and Mr. K. Myers of

his colleagues today on his Blxty-thlrd
birthday. After a fifteen year battle
and two defeats, the Hawkeye State
Solon broke Into Uncle Sam's house
of lords in 1908, and the chances are
he will remain quite some time.    -
Mr. Cummins has been entrusted
with formulating a report as to ways
ond means whereby the Democratic
congress may lop off the tenacles of
tho various octopil that are sucking
the lite blood of the republic, so to
speak. Senator Cummins is the sworn
fee of the octopus breed, and it is a
dull day when ho doen't twist the tall
of the octopodan monster that has Its
lair in the abysmal depths of Wall
Street, Manhattan.
Senator Cummins was born at Ctr-
michaels, Pa., Feb. 15, 1S50, and be
gan his career as a surveyor. He wa��
still a beardless youth when he be
lame assistant engineer in the con
���rtnictlon of the Clnninattl, Richmond
& Tort Wayne and the Northern Cen
*ral of Michigan railways. When hr
completed thise Jobs he was offered
an opportunity to help build the Den
ver & Rio Grande and started for Col
orado.
He Rot as far as Chicago, where he
met nn old friend that casually suggested that Cummins abandon railroading for the law. The young engineer gave the matter some thought
and when he was offered an opportunity to Btudy for the legal profes
slcn in the Chicago offices of McClel-
len & Hodges, he jumped at the
chance.
He was twenty-five when admitted
to the Illinois bar, and after three
years of practice in the Windy City
removed to Des Moines. There he
soon became prominent in politics,
and in 1S94 and again in 1900 he was
an unsuccessful candidate for United
States senator. On both occasions tu
waa given "the hook," but In 1908 his
ambition was realized. Ho was thrice
elected governor of Iowa before he
went to Washington.
Looking back over the past week, we in this city have
to be thankful for more than the present welcome break
in the weather, heralding as it does, the departure of the
snow and the coming of springtime. For the passing of
the New Westminster Harbor Bill through the Commons
and the railway legislation brought down in the provincial parliament are important finger posts pointing the
regal path which this city is destined to tread.
One of the chief and most important facts which became more generally appreciated by the public when the
plans of our harbor were first announced was the central
position which this city holds. Every little place which
appears upon the changing map of this province lays
claim to being the hub of the, universe, but Westminster,
with fifty-three years of life behind her, has an indefeasible title to being the hub of the lower mainland.
Not for nothing did Colonel Moody select this spot at
the forking of the Fraser for the site of a great city. We,
of a later generation, are witnessing the working out of
projects greater perhaps than he ever dreamed of. The
events of the last few days are but further indications
that this is no mere idle boast.
Not only is New Westminster the natural distrib
uting centre for the lower mainland but, in tha great port
that is slowly but surely being evolved here, will be found
the distributing mart of Western Canada. Development
by the C. P. R., by the B. C. E. R., by the G. N. R. is being
added to by the operations of the C. N. R. and in the not
far distant future there will be seen three great roads
hauling freight and passengers over one of Westminster's
bridges and two other companies performing the same
work via the new bridge which will link Annacis Island
to the southern shore.
For the immediate present it may be taken that the
plans of the C. N. R. have not been altered and will not
alter as far as the Fraser is concerned, no matter what
may happen elsewhere.   It is certain that the Fraser will
be very extensively used by the company and that this hi,    ,
city will be one of the principal points upon their entire liege, and V hirjwmg manhood wa

The city's negotiations with the Dominion government i
are progressing favorably while the provincial government have signified their willingness to give every assistance within their jurisdiction toward the development of
the Fraser river.
Development means business, and already on our
streets and in our offices there are indications of a bright �����*���***������** *
and cheery tone in the business outlook. This is well, and,
with a confident and united people, there can be no doubt
that New Westminster during this year of grace will
make remarkable strides toward her ultimate goal.

First Victim  of Police "System."
The first victim of the police "sys
tern" which has grown up in New-
York was James McAuliffe, a plas-
lapoe of j terer, who brought death upon himself hy prosecuting a police grafter.
Rleven years ago today McAttllfre, a
sober, industrious man, lett his home
to visit a slBter. The rollowing morning he was round, horribly beaten, in
a gutter, and died in a hospital soon
afterward.
His slaying aroused almost as much
excitement as the murder of Merman
Rosenthal by the agents of Becker. A
short time before his death McAuliffe
had been the principal witness against
K. C. Olennon, an alleged leader in
the police graft "system," and his/
testimony resulted In Glennon's conviction. Thus he became a marked
man. The police records showed that
McAuliffe had been arrested on a
charge of drunkenness on Feb. IB,
1902.
Prisoners near the cell Into which
McAulirre was thrown testified to having heard the sound of blows, groans
und cries. Newspaper Investigators
allege that the unfortunate man had
bean beaten almost to death In his
cell, then bundled Into a cab, carried a
six rt distance and thrown Into thc
street to die. The assassins or McAulirre Wf re never punlsh"(l.
pose first of purchasing of bait, Ice.
seines, lines and other supplies, and
secondly tor the transshipment o!
the catch and the chipping or crews.
The treaty wus rejected by the
United States Senate, but in Bpite ot
this the "modus operandi" protocol
was allowrd to remain in effect during
1888 and 1889, and afterwards the
same privileges were continued to the
American Hshermen by acts from time
to time by the Dominion Parliament.

Panama Canal Figures.
Mr. Kenneth Myers gave some tie
teresting facts and figures regarding
the Panama canal with which, he declared, the possibilities of the Pacific
coast were wrapped up. He al.m en
larged upon tbe Delta's share in tin
prosperity of New Westminster, Uo-
quitlam and Port Mann.
With regard to grain shipment*.
from thc Canadian Northwest be said
that the opening of the canal would
reduce the distance between the British Columbian coast and Europe l>;-
22 steaming days. Edmonton was 70"
milea nearer the Pacific than the head
of the lakes, while Moose Jaw was
1111 mlleB Bearer the western ports
than to St. John. Thus by shipping
-via the Pacific and the canal the grain
exporters of the * Northwest would
save a long expensive rail haul.

the transportation of wheat Mr. My. r
stated that the   present   grain    [.it

in the winter 34.40 cents, while mak
ing most generous   allowances,    th
rate for shipping grain from tbe coau
to Europe    via    the    Panama    cans'
could, hardly be more fuan 2M0 cent
and   later on to secure   ground for
recreation purposes.
"Today you can all understand the
necessity for these grounds and tbe
splendid buildings you possess." (Applause.) "So I think while we are
celebrating, what I may call our success, we should remember the men
who took the first steps toward its
attainment. 1 do not believe, today,
we fully recognize what these five
acres of land, which are dedicated to
recreation purposes, with the buildings on them, mean to the future Coquitlam.
"We all believe, as residents of Co-
quitlam, that we are going to become
a great Industrial centre. The benefits of these five acres right ln the
midst of these industries are Incalculable. I belteve that in years 11
come the people of Coqultlam wlll
look upon them as-one of their greatest assets. While I am being hon
ored tonight 1 do not believe and I dc
not want anyone to think that I feel
I am the author of this happy condition ot affairs.
"There is one man who 'stood pat'
when we encountered opposition and
assisted us In every way, the member
for. Dewdney, our good friend Mr.
Manson. He got us the appropriations which were necessary to carry
out our plans to success, aad backed
our endeavors to secure this ground
and build the hail.
"In presenting me with this travelling bag I do not believe that you
Intend It as a hint to quit." (Laughter) "but I assure you, if I do leave, I
will take the bag with me. In conclusion, I will say that I shall endeavor always to forward the Interests of the Coquitlam Agricultural

The rates for shipmrnts to the

signed for the eastern coast would be

���while the rates on lumber, salmon

The opening of the canal would
also mean that immigrants for British
Columbia could travel at considerably
less cost than at present via tha Watei
route from Europe. This meant that
B. C. would get a larger share of iin
migrants wbile the ultimate consequence would be that the province
���would have more and cheaper labor
and a greater number of oduslrles.

for the C. P. B. development in their
midst the diagram showed the destruction of their old agricultural
grounds. He and his colleagues, in
their commercial way, thought, money
would answci,the purpose. They proceeded along that line until they ran
up against James Mars and Allan
Mercer.
Tbey told the C. P. R. officials Rfl
well as himself that the people of
Coquitlam did not want money so
much as a new location and would
prefer to exchange one site for another. Argument, was useless and the
result was their fine square and excellent   building.
He knew their guest for three years
and yielded to none of them in his

"Old Times," proposed by Mr. J. R.

The proceedings terminated with
'the singing of "Auld Lang Sync."

Prof. Charles Wolcolt died recently in Kilinonton following an illtiea*)

Wolcott's death was Indirectly the result of a fall of three thousand feet

The house was crowded to capacity
before the second reel of pictures hod
been run and the audience enjoyed
the play, "Calla," immensely. Directly after the close of the first performance the girls went on to show
what they were able to do in the way
of entertainment.
Miss Madge Lennes in a rube character song, "They Always Pick *n
Me," succeeded in winning the popular approval for the first prize. Her
sister, Mies Alioe Lennes, with a song
won the second prize and Zoo and
"Chicken," the original pie-eaters,
wulked away with the third prize.
It seemed quite an innovation to
New Westminster people to see two

Eump In Tuesday's Qama at

According to Manager Gardner of
the ItoyalH a aertoui doubt exists in
Victoria as to whether Walter Smaill,
thn star wing man of the Victoria
Siockey team, will be able to play any
more games ln the Coast League UiIk
W'UHOII.
Walter was knocked out ln a collision with Cyclon-j Taylor and Lester
I'm rick In Tuesday's game at Victoria
and since then he has been in a half
defied condition.
This will be a serlouB loss to thc
I)resent leaders In the race for the
I'aterson Cup and, although Bob
Genge or Dummy Ulrich have been
lowing up well, a serious gap will
be mode In the combination play of
the Senators, which combination has
been the material factor in placing
them at the top of the ladder.
According to <".���miner, the former
Wanderer player stated that in all his
experience he had not seen a man get
a harder bump than did Smaill at Victoria, the player being sandwiched
between Taylor and Patrick. His
feet were lifted In the air and thus
lie had ;io chance to protect his head.

Now York, Feb. 14��� A big deal between the Boston and New York
National League clubs probably will
be closed before the Giants leave for
the South. Manager Stallings of Boston haa been Id town since the league
meetings and has had several talks
with MeOraw. They had another
conference tonight.
McGraw Is said to be after Tyler,
the Boston left-hander, and Campbell,
an outfielder. According to a rumor,
the players McGraw is willing to use
In a trado are Wlltse, Ames and Cran-
dall, pitchers; Devore, Snodgrasa and
McCormick, outfielders, and Groh and
Stock, inflelders.
It Is said he wonld not give up All
these players for the Boston pair, but
that Stallings might have any three,
or possibly four, provided he did not
choose more than one of the "pitchers
or more than one of the outfielders.

Cupholders'   Captain   Predicts   Lively
Bouts in Vancouver Thla Evening���Royals'  Lineup.
"Vancouver will have to travel at a
faster clip than ever if they hope to
keep pace with us tomorrow night,"
stated Jimmle Gardner to The News
last evening while commenting on
the game to bd played in Vancouver
this evening.
"With the six-man game our forwards will be able to uncork all their
speed and with Mallen and Tobln to
jump in as substitutes 1 look for nothing else but a win for Westminster."
This will be the first occasion on
which two coast teams may be seen
playing thc Eastern style of hockey
and nd little interest ls being shown !C'"
in  the result of the venture.
It will mean that the spectators will
get a glimpse of 12 men In the game
all the time, for there will be no uneven play such as the seven-man
system calls for when one or two of
the players are warming the penalty
bench.
Owing to the accident to Walter
Smaill, sustained In the Victoria-Vancouver game of Tuesday evening,
(!oldi�� Prodgers and Skinner Poulin
will officiate.

Although only three games have
been played so far ln the city hockey
league the fans aro clamoring for
more of the same brand. They are
likely to get their fill this evening
when the Heavers and Y. M/C. A.
clash for the first time.
This is also the Initial event for
tlie Beavers and the wiseacres whi
have been watchiug their workouts
claim they can make any team in
British Columbia, wearing simoii pun
clothes, hustle for speed. m
The Y. M. C. A. are by no means
scared and with one scalp banging to
their belts will take the ice wltb a
do or die spirit, ready to get licked by
a better team, but always willing to
come back for a second wallop if
necessary. ��
The performance of Sapperton in
defeating Kraser Mills on Wednesday
evening bas got the fans guesBiiiB
forty days. All kinds or mathematical
questions are being asked such as "If
the Y's can beat Sapperton and Sapperton can beat the Frenchmen how
will the Beavers fare ?"
Some difficulty was experienced yes
terday in securing officials on account
of the program in Vancouver this
evening, but It was decided last night
that Eddie McCarty would be referee
with Lew Prentiss as assistant.
The game will start at 10:14o'clock,
following the regular skating session

Cane Rghtlng Better Than Boxing for
Self Detenu*, Says Navy Man,
Although he will celebrate hie 55th
birthday today, Lledt.-Commander Andrew Chase Cunningham, U. 8. N
naval inspector of public works, is
still able to defend, hie reputation a;
one cf the greatest "fencer* ot
America. The eminent naval engineer
believes that the "manly art of self-
defence Is an overrated attainment,
and that a cane, cr even an umbrella,
Is- a better meana of defence than the
lists.
His ideas have been set forth In a
book just published, entitled "The
Cane ai a Weapon." He alao recom-
ine.. .ia the use of a cane as "an excellent systematic exercise of a light
and attractive, nature."" The superiority cf a cane over nature's weapons,
says the nafy officer, lies in "tbe In*
creased reach and apace which it
covers as compared with the hands,
the great variety and diversity of motions that can be made, and the multiplication and concent rat iim of the
muscular force applied to ft." This
comparison seems h bit unfair to the
"manly art."
As for variety and diversity of motions"���well, a clever boxer haa quite,
a repertoire; add in tbe matter ol
"inusculir force," I have seen boxero
wBb bad quite a bit ot IL Whoops,
me dear, tbat I haye.

The well known home player blew
Into the Royal City late In September
and was out with the home brews on
eeveral occasions, but Manager Oray,
feeling sure of the championship,
would not allow the termer green
shirt to take port In any games, leaving the honor of defending tke enp
against Corn*, all to tho local boys.
However, Nick got embued with the

NOTICE.
Panama Is Glory of
Military Engineers
Notice la hereby given that the Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders of the Elk Creek Waterworks
Co., Ltd., will be held in the Board
Room of the Westminster Trust, Ltd.,
Columbia street, New Westminster,
dh February 19, 1913, at 8 p.m.
Business���
To receive Directors's Report.
To elect Directora and Auditor.
To sanction the raising of the sum
of $50,000.00 by way of debentures or
mortgage, and any other business that
may regularly come before the meeting.
By order ot the Board.
J. A. RENNIE,
(618) Secretary.
Fred A. Calvin, assistant editor of
American Machinist, says of the Panama canal project a project which is
big with destiny for New Westminster
and the Fraser river:
More than any other undertaking in
the world's history, perhaps, the Panama -Canal ls due to the combined
development of many elements of civilization. While the French engineers
failed to complete tbe canal, we must
remember that no one could have succeeded at that time, and-we must give
tbem credit for courage; engineering
ability and a creditable (achievement.
Without a Col. Gorgas to first eliminate tbe mosquito and make the Canal Zone not only livable but comfortable and even attractive the canal
would never have been built Without
the modern developments of excavating machinery and of concrete the
great locks at Gatun, Pedro Miguel
and Mlraflores and the nine-mile cut
at Culebra would never have been
completed within a reasonable time.
Without repair shops at Chrlstobal,
Gorgona, Empire and Balboa to* keep
the locomotives, steam shovels and
other machinery In operation the rap-
Id progress would have been Impossible. And without the selection ot
proper material to stand the climate,
not forgetting the too often over
looked item of belting, the cost in delays and in actual money might be difficult to compute.
Under Army Supervision.
The whole administration of the
shop and storehouses is under the
army in various branches. The
stores come under the quartermaster's department and the storehouses
are Bplendidly kept in every way. Employees all have a brass check or tag
Bimilar to a baggage tag bearing their
number. This tag is the open sesame
to all commission stores. Here the
employees can buy anything at cost,
usually much cheaper than the same
thing can be secured in New York or
any northern city.
At Christobal are the main storehouses, the government Ice factory,
ice cream factory, bakery and laundry.
Early every morning the supply train,
usually 21 cars, starts out to supply
the smaller storehouses and distributing points along the Isthmus. Am:
there are very few of the necessities
and even luxuries which cannot be
secured from the main stores and
senl to you at short notce.
Attention to Details.
These seem strange when we think
of canal digging, but show conclusively that it is the attention to details
that brings success no matter how
large the enterprise. Men would not
stay until the surroundings were
healthy and congenial.
This meant comfortable quarters
for their wives and children. This in
turn necessitated the adoption of a
complete school system, Including a
high school \hlch ranks second io
none as a preparatory school or college. It iJlao meaht recreation centres and Y. M. C. A. buildings for the
men and women's clubs for the women.
All strangely out of place nnd a
seeming extravagance ln a tropical
climate and for a temporary Job, but
all absolutely necessary to the buc-
ceBBful building of the canal In record
time as has been done.
The same thing has been carried
out in the details of shop management
and the buying of proper materials to
work with. We go into large or
small machine shops and pay all our
attention to the machines and never
see the belts that drive them and
without which they would be of almost no UBe. And the belt problem la
one of the worst that comes up, especially In shops IS" tropical countries.
Heat   Not Only  Factor.
The Ideas of heat ln tbe Canal Zone
are apt to be exaggerated as the temperature rarely goes over 93 degrees
and sunstrokes are unknown. But
heat Is not the .only factor in these
climates.
Imagine sitting down at the table
on a damp, rainy day and pressing
with your knife on the salt in the salt
cellar and see moisture stand in
dropB on the knife. Salt shakers are
out of the question, and envelopes are
made without gum to prevent their
being accidentally scaled when not
wanted. This gives you Borne idea of
the dampness In the atmosphere.
It is not so hot as you expect, but
you perspire at the slightest provocation and sometimes without any
provocation at all. Your clothes may
be damp in the morning, almost wet.
In fact, unless you put them in the
tight wardrobes usually provided. And
your boots insist on getting mouldy un- j
less they are wiped dry when put j
away, and even this Is not a sure preventative.

IVS lone years of
Suffering from
Kidney Trouble-
two boxes of GIN
PILLS ���and it's
nil gone. That haa
been the experience
of Mr. Eugene
Quesncl, Chief Cily

of La Patrie, of

describes it
feelingly:
MontKa1<
May 3rd, 1912
I have been suffering Irom Kidney
Trouble ior over five long years. I
hid also Rheumatism in all my'bones
and muscles, could not sleep nights and
on some occasions could hardly walk.
I hail been treated by some of our best
1'liy.sicians but without relief and I lost
over fifteen pounds. One day I met
one of our leading ho'el keepers, who
h.-.it been cured by your famous GIN
PILLS, an 1 he sdvi ted me to try them.
So I bought two boxes at my druggist'a
ami Kelore I had used one box I felt a
big change. Before I finished the
second one I w.is completely cured.
I can assure you I can hardly believe
it for if I had only known what I know
now I would not have spent over One
Hundred Dollars for nothing when two
boxes of GIN TILLS cured me."

and all kinds of Kidney Trouble.

FAVOR Of PRINCES
RESTS UPON WALLER
Mr. Lewis Waller who appears in
���A Marriage of Convenience" at the
Opera House next Monday evening,
was born of English parentage in Bilbao. He first appeared on the professional stage in 1883 as Hon. Claude
Ixirrimcr In "Uncle Dick's Darling,"
at Toole's Theatre In London, and in
many parts played by Mr. Waller Bince
then, he has won for himself a repute-
tlon of being one of the very finest
romantic actors of his generation, lt
wax a curious bit of fortune for Mr.
Waller's first appearance to have as
one of his auditors, his late majesty
���then Prinee of Wales���who from
that first night became one of Mr.
Waller's ardent admirers, and it followed that Mr, Waller had more royal
commands from King Edward VII.
than any other actor past or present.
Mr. Waller appeared la many parts
previous to his engagement with Sir
John Mare at the Garrlck Theatre,
London. Here he appeared In "Pro-
rugate La Tosca" and "Nlxle." Even
as a Juvenile actor, Mr. Waller became n great favorite, and the parts
that followed -would take a column of
���space to enumerate. Monsieur Beau-
calre, was one of his late great ..sue-
cesBes, and In this piece he appeared
et hia own theatre ln London for many
montha. It Is probable, howeysr, of all
parts he has ever played, Comte de
Candale ln "A Marriage of Convenl-
ence" ia the best. Seats are now on
