Successful Carnival in Aid
Royal Columbian Hospital Is Over.
Grand   Ball  Prov**  Fitting  Climax���
Many Attended Lut Evening���
Financial Success.
With a fitting climax In the nature
of a grand ball which did not terminate until a late hour, the Klrmess, one
of thu grandest and most brilliant
events of Its kind ever held  In    the
city of New Westminster, came to a
conclusion last evening a success
financially und lu every other respect.
lji.it evening's portion of the affair
could not have proved of a more enjoyable nal urn for the large throng
that attended. Tho various numbers
on the program wero produced In B
most admirable manner nnd left nothing whatever to be desired as far as
excellence was concerned.
Wllh lhe conclusion of the event It
Is gratifying to note that financially
the result was all that could be de-
aired and the members of the Ladles'
Auxiliary are most grateful to those
who helped provide the entertainment
and to lhe public, without whoBe generous Support such a successful Bhowlng could not have been mnde.
The exact returns from the nllalr
were not available, but It is certain
the net receipts will go n considerable
rilsiance towards providing the new
hospital wllh linen, which waa the
main  object of the affair.
Those who took part In the various
events on the program are deserving
of the highest prnlBo.

Canada  Will  Control  Japanese  Immigration Similar to Proviso Taken
by United State*.
Ottawa, Marcil 27.���An important
provision In tlie new Japanese treaty
will cunt roi for Canada the domination over Immigration from Japan that
was lacking In the previous agreement   II reads as follows:
"Nothing in said treaty or In this
nct shall be deemed to repeal or affect any of the provisions of the Immigration net." ���
Premier Borden placed this resolution on the order paper yesterday,
Negotiations have taken place during last year between the government
of Japan and the government of Canada as a result of which the Japanese
government has agreed that Canada
may thus accede to the new treaty.
It  Is thus made absolutely clear that
control of Immigration from Japan to
Canada shall be, as It ought to be,

May   Appoint   Constable   and   Deputy
Mining   Recorder  at  Scene  of
Latest Gold Strike.
Victoria, Maroh 27. Dr. H. K. Young
provincial secretary, haa Just returned
' from the Bcetio of the reported gold
strike on Atlin creek at the head ot
Teslin lake. On the way dowu he
opened the new general hospital at
I'rlnce Kupert:
"I am thinking of lending a provincial constable in there iu the near
future to hold the position as constable and deputy mining recorder,"
,said Dr. Young tills mornlug. "At
present John Pilling, at Telegraph
Creek, is deputy mining recorder, but
I believe that It will be better if we
1 have a man on the ground.
"Ot course, one cannot as yot say
whether the new cainp will prove a
valuable producer, but by the time
those on the ground, about 400 men
have done their work we will know
the situation exactly. 1 did not decide, as it was lirst reported I would,
to appoint B recorder there. I think
that the appointment of a provincial
constable to such a position will an
swer ull present needs."
lie wan of the opinion Ihnt the new
trail which would be built from Atlin.
lhe proposed disbursement fer which
was included in the estimates, will
reduce tlie distance by GO miles. It
would also serve another new field iu
which quite a valuable strike had
been made that on O'Donnell river.
The doctor further staled that in all
his experience of Atlin he had never
seen II so prosperous as it Is today.

Ever since since the electrical workers have been organized on the lower

the Westminster employees hive been

from the Vancouver local and according to one of the linemen of the city
everything is in shape to allow tho

This will mean that 100 men will

We are glad to note that the market committee of the
city council, at whose head is Alderman Henley, appreciate tho importance of increasing the facilities for the
economic handling of the produce of the farms in the
Fraser Valley. With the support of the council, who are
also well aware of the importance of this move, there is
no doubt that the new market that is to be erected will
have all the necessary requirements, and it may be anticipated that by the time the organization has been completed among the farmers themselves, and arrangements
made for the handling of their produce, the new market
building will be in readiness to meet the improved order
of things and any emergency that may arise.
While we may not be in a position to take care of all
the produce this fall, it is certain that next year's crop will
see a great change in marketing conditions both in the
valley and the city.
We may rest assured that the council will keep this
important matter before them and will use every effort to
complete arrangements within a reasonable time. The
present building and site are not suitable for the large
���extensions that will be made in the marketing conditions
and a new site has therefore been provided in the harbor
plans. This arrangement will meet every requirement and
a new building can be erected that will adequately serve
thc purpose the council have in view for making New
Westminster the distributing centre for the produce of the
Fraser valley.
With the question of marketing thc subject of good
roads is closely interwoven, and it is therefore pleasing to
know that the very energetic member for the Delta riding,
Mr. F. J. MacKenzie, M.P.P. is so enthusiastic in everything connected with his constituency that he has induced c���\':: polltlcft"Y,' ft.nd hi" f"���1���

resent them and feel sure that his constituents will fully ^he'VtatasTSndneSS K&1

Final preparations have been made

Defeated   Victoria   Last   Night  6-3   In
Six   Man  Game���F nal Game
on Saturday.
Victoria, March 27. Quebec, the
Eastern chumplons, stayed In the
running for the world's hockey chain-l
ploimhip when they deteated the Vic-!
torla team Blx goals to three on the
looal ice this evening, tho content be- i
ing played under Eastern rules.
The game wuh exciting Irom start to
finish, n capacity house being kept on
edge throughout the first two periods
while a terrific puce was maintained
in the last when Victoria made des- j
perate efforts to maintain their lend.
The Ancient City sextette were In
their element under the six-man rules,
both the forwards and the defence
men going through time and again,
giving Lindsay, the Capital custodian
no end of trouble.
Quebec took the lead In the first
period, only to lose It In Ihe second,
but their knowledge of the six-man
game was shown In the final spasm
when Crawford went through with
brilliant spa! which turned the tide.
Victoria scored two goals iu Ihe las
period   hut.   one   of   these   was   di
lowed on in count of their seven men
being  on   the    Ice     wbeu    the    puck
sagged  the itrings.
Paddy Moran displayed IiIb hrllll*
ance In the net for Quebec while
Tommy Smith and Joe Malono were
stars on the forwnrd line.
l'or  Victoria   Lester    Patrick    and .
Skinner  Poulin  showed up prominent
although the team play which bas featured the Pat' rsiui cup holders during the season was lacking.
The Victory for Quebec gives them
a Chance to cop the world's series,
tlie final name to be played en Kutiir*
day on lh" Victoria Ice, nllhough the
Senators will have an advantage playing the seven man gam".

Forty Years on the Broad Highway*
of England Hava Not Undermined
tha Health cf Veteran Wanderers,
Says Harry Payne���Mending of All
Sorts Is the Most Common Form
of Work  Done.
Of all Uie people I meet on the road
there are none who interest me so
much as the veterans and old stagers.
Kven as a lod, when I lirst came on
the "toe-be" (road) I always found
my greatest pleasure in the oompany
of such men, says Harry Payne iu
London Idras.
A thing which has always amazed
me in connection with these old veterans is their wonderful hardihood.
Twenty, thirty, und even forty years
of life1' on tlie road have not undermined their constitution, or rendered
them incapable of competing with the
younger men on the road. I remember meeting an old stager some years
ago while "on tramp" in the north of
Scotland, at a place called Bervle, between Montrose and Stonehaven, on
the the north coast. Whilst tramping
along the dust-laden rond the old man
confided to me something of his lite
He wa* born on the road, o! tramp
parents, and had lived on thc mail
all his life. He Was then seventy
year-, of age, ami he looked as hardy
and as ht as a man of half Ins yearn.
In ths course oi his seventy years
of life he had been in turn acrobat in
a traveling circus, racing "spiv" (tipster), tinker, wireworker, tern gatherer, watercress gatherer, "tub ttiumi>
er" (coo|ier), "tatter" (rag gatherer),
odd mnn on the land, "mush-laker"
(umbrella mender), and many more
things besides.
During the last fifteen years of hi*
life ho had practically lived in the
open air. His bundle contained his
"skippering tackle," or, in other
wonis. his equipment for "dossing''
out. This consist d of several old horse
rugs, a couple if long sacks, a sma'.',
pillow stuffed with straw, and several
pots and pans, 'lhe old man's knowledge ol Scotland was lx>th "extensive
ami peculiar." He had tramjied it by
day ai.il by night, summer anil winter
fnr  nearly  a  quarter   of a century,
ami. as we sny on the "toe-be," lie
knew every house for miles which
win  "good   lor  a  cold   potatOe."
Like all old stagers he vehemently
deplored the passing oi the "good old
times, 1'lie country nml the people
n.n't a little bit like what they used
to he," be 6aJJ to me in plaintive
t'ine-s, as we trudged a'.ong the broad,
white highway in tin- golden sui.shine
oi that glorious summer afternoon.
"The present generation have no
hearts," he continued. "When I was
a youngster a man on the road oould
get a feed and a night's shelter at
almost every house in this countryside. People used to think it shame
in anyone who turned a poor man
sway (nun their door hungry and
eni] ty-handed. Hut those times are
past and gone!" And the old man
heaved a sigh. A couple of years ago,
while tramping in the north ol Kt.g-
laiul, 1 made the acquaintance of an-
1 other o'.d veteran. 1 fell in with him
at   a   "kip"  (lod'.'ing-house)   In   Halt-
' whist'.e, in Northumberland, and we
became quite "chummy," nnd were
in the habit ol wiiing away the long
* wint*r evenings with a lew gamss ol
dominoes. "Old Durham." as be waa
cal'e'l, was sevr-nty-four years of H'rc,
a' 1 had be-n forty years on the road.
Prior to that hi had been in the
army, though ' i what branch of the
srrvio.' i canmt sny. No matter where
. he  whs  staying  in  Northumberland,
: Durham, or Cumberland (to which
thre*-> counties his wanderings were
cinfined) he would rise nt t a.m ,
Fiimmer nml winter, and after a wash
a-ii a cup of ten, start ofl on the road.
He had  a lamp for  lighting him on
1 h     way during the dark mornings and
i nights ol winter.
He was a survival of the olden time
I pcdlnr,   and   always   carried   a   pack
i well stocked with lace, ribbons, and
the sort of gimcraeks which are dear
ito the heart   ot   the   country  maid.
I During tho summer time "Old Dur
ham" used to live entirely out oi
d'-ors, and for this puTpo-ttc would always enrry his "skippering tackle."
1 have heard tbla grissled Old vetsrau
declare over and over again thut he
would not die in a bed.
Another nid vetrenn whom I can resell was, in tramps' pnrlanoe, a "epiki
ranger," that is, a regular habitue ut
casual wards, or "spikes " Kilty
jcuts he had bte.1 cn the "toe-b-V anj
nv.re than hall that time be had
spent in the "spikes" oi Kngland and
Wales. At seventy years of age he
could break Ins ten to lilteen hundredweight of Mmics, or pick Ins four
pounds ol oakum with the best among
his fellows. How this mnn contrived
to preserve his Iron constitution and
retain his cheerful optim.sm while
leading hie worst oi all.existences w
more than I can sny. But retain them
he did, down to the time be died, in a
easuai wr.rd in Koulh Wales.
Another hardy old voternn ol my
arrimli.tnnee is still on the road arid
doing his six "stages" a week. We
will call him "Old Cough-drop." a
nickname which owes its orijin lo the
pe-euliar nature of his -bailing. He is
n ti lister, nml during tlie flat racing
season ���ells "tips" at n iwnny a time.
The "tips" ere enclosed in envelopes,
snd each envelope -contains about
half-a-dor.��n cough lozenge*, ���oi th--**
sort you oan gel nt lour ounces a penny. "1 don't sell the tip, gente; 1 give
you that in iree, grat.s, and for nothing, along with the cough lozenges,
which I'll guarantee to cure m two
days the worst cold nr COOSb that ever
threatened a man with six feet of landed estate!" Thus the wiry old mnn
in the "horsey" suit, who, in spite of
his sixty-eight years, Is still "padding
the lionl" on the ilcnr old "toe-be."
A Story on an Englishman That Has

"And now It become* my duty to see

Then, leaning across tbe table, he
struck s silver call bell tbat bsd been
left between him snd the guest.
Kvery laxly leached bnt tbe letter. To
everybody's surprise, he arose In his
plsce. picked up the bell, admired It
nnd put It In his pocket. Tbeu he cleared bla throat, aud there was silence
for his speech:
