Delegates to Peace Conference Packing up and Saying
Good-bye to London-���Both Sides Say Opponents Arc
Bluffing���Allies Say Adrianople Must Fall Before
They Will Discuss Terms of Peace.
London, Jan. 31���The Balkan allies
and the Turks are making active preparations to resume hostilities ln
southeastern Europe.
The delegates of the allies to tho
peace conference here are saying tare-
well and packing their baggage preparatory to departing from London. A
news agency dispatch received here
today from Constantinople reported
that the Turkish delegates had been
ordered home, but the command has
not been received. The good offices
of the powers to avert a further resort
to arma apparently have failed thus
Even at this late hour each side to
armistice, will be signed after the fall
of Adrlanople, and on a drumhead on
the battlefield. The conditions of peace
will comprise not only a new Thra-
cean frontier Une, but the contemporaneous surrender of Scutari and Ja-
uina to Montenegro and Oreece and
aiso a war Indemnity.
"I do not believe that l shall return to London for the drafting and
signing of a definite treaty, which can
be done more easily at Sofia or Constantinople. However, each of the
Balkan delegations Is leaving one of
its members here to keep in touch
with tbe ambassadorial conference and
to give the ambasodors any necessary

tbe promoter of the bill pointed out'
that It Is planned to transfer tbe con.
the dispute ts accusing the other of | explanations  regarding questions un
bluffing. The Turks declare that in
thetr note to the poww-s Thursday th-3
alliea were given greater concessions
aa a baals for resuming the peace negotiations than they had expected
would be made them at the commencement of the peace negotiations. The
allies virtually admit this, but say
tbe terms which would have been ac
ceptable even a fortnight ago cannot
be entertained now and that tbe Turkish game obviously is to lead them
by the nose for months, counlim; on
i-ielr possible exhaustion and hoping
'hat complications will arise to favor
'I urkey.
Dr. Daneff, head of the Bulgarian
delegation,  said today that the  feel

M. Venlzeles, the Greek premier, In
bidding farewell to friends today said
he hoped soon to return to London
for a definite conclusion of peace as
the second period of the war would be
very short.
M. Mlyuakovitch, head of the Montenegrin delegation, went to Paris today
but will return to London tomorrow
and leave there direct for Cettinje
next Wednesday.
The exchattge of communications
between the representatives of tbe
powers was active today, but thus
far it seems that no practical way has
been found to avert a resumption of
hostilities.    The  British   government

A comparison between the Vatican I
and the Musselman's holy shrines In
Adrlanople, Dr. Daneff said, was Inadmissible. Tbe Italians, he said, made
concessions to the Papacy after tbey
had taken possession of Rome.   In ad
meana still will be found to avert
resumption of the war. '
The Times publishes a despatch
from Sofia which declares that the
Turkish concessions have made" a
much more favorable Impression there
thsn on the Bulgarian delegates    In
trol and management of the harbor
council to the new board. He said
that It van planned to spend large
aums of money on the harbor to make
it capable of accommodating not only
the traffic ot today, but what the future yeara will bring as well.
Several members raised the question cf the shore rights and on -this
the minister of marine, Hon. J. * D.
Hazen, mode a statement. He aald
that the law concerning foreshores Is
that in those harbors that were public
harbors at confederation the foreshore rights are vested In tbe crown
through the governor general, but   In
might be regarded a> a public harbor
Tbe practice had been, tn the case
of municipalities, to give the foreshore rights at a nominal figure, but
where they were sought by private
parties to rent them and for the gov-
at confederation, whether one which j eminent ln council to fix the rental.
was tben used by ships or one that
was then capable of being used by
ships, If improved.
Clearly a Public Harbor.
Ai to New Westminster, It was
clearly a public harbor at confederation and its fore-more rights were
vested ln the crown as represented by
parliament. Under the common law
those wbo have foreshore rights are
tho e who have tha riparian rights. He
said that the custom Is to grant' foreshore rights only on joint report and
recommendation of tbe minister of
marine and the} minister of public
Each case waa considered on its own
merits and the practice that was being pursued at present was cot to
g'.ve quit-clalma, but, Instead, leases
of 21 years wltb two possible renewals of 21 years each, but tbe rentals
could be re-arranged on the occasion
of renewals and If there was dispute
the exchequer court settled It, he sold
that there were many applications before the department for foreshore
rights, many of these rights having
! greatly enhanced tn value during the
'years. The department was endeavoring to have them all dealt with as
quickly as possible.

Rev. Arthur S. Lewis, the successor

that nothing conld stop a reopening
of the war except the unconditional
surrender of Adrlanople and the
Aegean Islands.
The Servian delegates bade farewell
today to Sir Edward Grey, the British
foreign minister. Stolen Novakovitch,
head of the delegation, told Sir Edward that he considered a renewal of
the war inevitable, aa the Bulgarians
would not be satisfied with anything
short of tbe surrender of Adrianople.
M. Novakovitch aald to the Associated
Press that ho did not believe interference with the allies waa possible.
"This time," ho added, "the preliminaries to peace together with a new

elders there still is a faint hope that
peace will be preserved, lt saya that
should tbe Yonng Turks decide to go

likely enough that the allies would respond.
In anv event, says tbe Times, It Is
hoped If the fighting is resumed that
it will be confined practically to a
bombardment of Adrianople and that
the fall of Wat eity will bring about
the conclusion of peace. The paper
adds that It Is believed Germany

The intimation from Ottawa that the Immigration department intends to obtain photographs and other data
relating to every individual Chinaman in Canada, may in-
oiicate that the Chinese Commission held two years ago
in Vancouver has had some effect in bestirring the authorities to take action.
We are told that there are no less than 50,000 Chinese
in the Dominion. In this province alone there were 15,000
two years ago, and even that private enumeration did not
take into consideration numbers of the yellow men who
"were scattered over the province in various.transient occupations such as working upon the railways. It is fairly
safe to hazard a guess that there are by now quite 20,000
in British Columbia.
We believe in a white British Columbia, but we recognize that that ideal has its limitations. If we cannot be rid
of the Asiatic peoples within our gates, by all means let
us control them, although the very act of so controlling
them is contrary to that spirit of democracy of which we
hear so much.
, If now it has been found expedient to have every
"linaman properly registered, so it may be presumed, it
is necessary to have every Japanese and native of India,
also properly accounted for. As a people-the Chinese are
finite the equals, and by many are considered the superiors,
���of their fellow Asiatics.
We recognize that the Asiatic question in Canada,
and especially in this province is of a most complicated na-
We need "radical rlghtings" In Canada, just as much ss the change Is
needed In the republic. We have
copied an immense amount of the badness of the republic, perhaps unconsciously. The right-about-face period
must soon come. All the vicious taxes, the combines, the extravagance in
administration, to say nothing of other
ev.ls, are ripe for removal.���Winnipeg Tribune.

After every other man concerned
n the rebellion of 1S37 had been allowed to return home, Wm. Lyon Mackenzie still remained an outlawed ex-
119 In the United States, because, it
was said, the English ministry believed thst the origin of tho rebellion was
due to him.
But he had a good friend in England ln Joseph name, an untiring laborer In many directions, and an untiring foe to special prlvilieges. Writing to Mackenzie in 1S48 Hume stated
that though he had "condemned the
attempt at' revolution" he could not
forget Mackenzie's endeavors to put
an end quietly and In a constitutional way to misrule and consequent discontent in Upper Canada.
Therefore he had six times applied
to the British ministers to grant a
genera) amnesty to all political offenders In Canada, and at last had obtained a promise that any resolution
from the Canadian government on
Mackenzie's behalf would be received
favorably. Finally, urged by Hume
and others, the Canadian government
originated a measure for the complete amnesty desired. s
This passed unanimously through
both houses, and received the assent
ct Lord Elgin, representing the Queen
on February 1, 1843. On Mackenzie's
arrival in Toronto however, there was
a Tory riot.

tloa, but for whloh no Affective means
of discovery and protection haa hare-

For some time the work has beei
conducted In a small way.' but the department has been thoroughly aroused
to the Importance of dealing with thd
tiBtics.    There are no less than fifty
| thousand Chinese In Canada.
Two photographs of each will mean
I at least 100,000 negatives. The cooperation of provincial and municipal
anthcritics may be asked to eecur-
these pictures, but full dotalls of
how they nre to be obtained have nol
yet boen arranged. Once tho Chinese

<d. the work will be confined to tne
ports of entry, while records of birth-,
and deaths will be secured from the
locil authorities.
Toronto has between 1700 and MOO
Chinese. Vancouver leads the Canadian cities with ��000, Victoria ls a
Rood second with nearlv 6000; then
follow Montreal, 2000; Winnipeg with
1500; Calgary, 1200, etc.
Scarcely a town- of two or three
hundred people but haa one or more
Chinese merchants or laundrymen. A
number are alao engaged as cooks
and cookees for construction gin**,
on the frontier.
In so far as practicable tho local Immigration agent will be empowered
to conduct the investigation and receive the affidavit. He bas alao power to examine the premises from cellar to garret ot any Chinaman and to
take evidence upon oats. Kcrmcrly
this power was vested solely In a notary public.
Not Easy Here.
The obstacles to the scheme ara
enormous, but not insurmountable, it
Is believed. In cities like Ottawa or
Toronto It la thought that-the records
may be secured without as mucb trouble ai might be expected, but lt will
probably not be ao easy a task on the
Pacific coast.
Advice haa already been aant to
the various local agents that the work
Is to be undertaken and extensive
preparations have been made with the
utmost secrecy.
The Immigration authorities state
that the greatest difficulty In handling Chinese Investigation,���anil much

Their Best?
Failure to attend strictly to business
as regards training resulted ln -New
Westminster getting another defeat
chalked up against them ln the Coast
Hockey'league last evening when the
Victoria septette on their own lee defeated the Royals to the tune ot seven
goals to three.
Ill-luck and lack of a rink pf, thetr
against a heavier set of players whol own has been mentioned heretofore
took advantage of their weight at ss the result of the local professional
every opportunity, while at the same | team losing out -eftl-i    a    monotony
which is just about getting tiresome
to . Westminster hockey enthusiasts,
but the public ls beginning to get wise
to the fact that unless the team takes
a brace, get down strictly to business
and really do something to the credit
of the Royal City, professional hockey
will get a black eye from which It will
take two or three season to recover.
This makes six defeats tbat have
been handed to New Westminster so
far this season, while one victory has
been chalked up; quite enough for
any team to suffer from without having lt go any further. That they are
not by any means third-raters In the
hockey world was demonstrated lost

cup and again only a week ago wben

other teams that comprise the league.
But to return to the game of last
evening. Advices which reached us,

team after tbe scoring of the first goal
by Lester Patrick, who by the way,
was the particular star of tbe evening,

Liverpool man's escapade was told to
the London and Northwestern railway police at Crewe.
Shortly after midnight a railway
shunter working on the great network
of railways south of Crewe noticed a

and on approaching lt, found a man
with only a portion of a shirt covering

presented a ghastly sight.

He crawled through many hedges

were terribly torn by thorns. At
Willeston he got on the railway and
in bare feet ran along the rough macadam ballast for nearly three miles,
on the way he met three trains and
had to cling to the side of an embankment.
A signalman saw the man rushing
madly along the line, but was powerless to stop him. Reaching the great
goods junction at Crewe he ran about
among the moving trains climbing
over them and- crawling beneath
wagons. When he reached the police
station he was terribly emaciated and
in an exhausted condition.

Great Singer Receives Warm Welcome
From Music Lovers of Westmlns-
ter and  Vancouver.
A! t-ich musical treat was provided at
the opera house last night by Madame'
Lillian Nordlca, and as was only to
be expected the nail was filled in
every part by music lovers of this
city and Vancouver.
Aesembled ln expectation of great
things, the fare pro-nlded in the program could not fail to satisfy, lt comprised many styles, ranging from the
brilliant dramatic, the lightsome and
more dainty, to the plaintive and Bad,
and in-eluded numbers, in German,
French end Italian aa well a�� English. In each in Its turn Madame Nordlca has a delightful at-hotse-ness and
she carrle* her audience with her,
whither she will, her little characteristic gesture* at Intervals only helping
in this respect She lives each song
as she sing* it and takes the company entirely Into her confidence in a
charming manner.
Enthusiastic appreciation was the
keynote of the evening and the people
were not slow ln expressing their keen
delight in the various numbers rendered.
Madame Nordica's first items were:
(a) When Cherries Bloomed, (b) At
the Feast of the Dead, two Japanese
songs by Wakefield Cadman; (c) Ich
Grolll Nlcht, Schumann; (d) Damon,
In response to an encore she sang
"The Years at the Spring."
After her next item, a group of
French songs by Vlday, Debuesy and
Demberg, all of the modern school, she
was recalled again and again and sang
"Mighty Like the Rose," and as a
doublo encore to which tlie generously responded, ehe gave "When Love
Is Kind."
The Second Part
In the second part of the program
the Aria from Tannhauser was substituted by the Aria from Madame
Butterfly, at the special request of
pointment of some who were present.
This was received with perhaps even
greater pleasure than the preceding
numbers and after repeated recalls
the prima donna sang "mattinata," by
beoncavala. Her last group of songn
were again very different, also of the
modern school and were much appre
ciated. After this group and a brief
consultation with her accompanist ��he
sang the always favorite "Home,
Sweet Home."
