Macpherson Withdraws
Remarks About Fraser
Gives The    Newe   Cony   of Written
Apology for Statements He Made
at Meeting.
A sequel to Saturday night's meeting held in the Burnaby publlc hall
In the Interests of Hugh M. Fraser,
came to light last evening when Councillor Macpherson handed The News
the following communication dealing
with some of his remarks mado on
the olatform that same evening.
The letter which Councillor Macpherson desired to have published,
explains Itself:
"In fairness to Mr. Hugh Fraaer, ���

was to the effect that I had been told
by some ot mr friends that they bad
been solicited to sign a petition for Mr.
Fraser by assurances that they would
get work If they did so.
"I wish here to absolutely withdraw that statement and express to
Mr. Fraser my sincere regret for having made It. I do thla for two reasons: First, evidently tbe remark at
tue meeting was construed, aad lt
might hereafter be construed, oa a reflection by me on Mr. Fraser or hla
methods personally. Seoond, I have
questioned the partlea making the
statements to me aad am satisfied
that, even If there Is any truth whatsoever tn the statements, the actions
complained ot had no more to do with
Mr. Fraser than Mr. Fraser had to do
with the said acta, Inaamuch aa I understand that Mr. Fraaer had not beea

TUESDAY   MORNING.    DECEMBER   16.   1913.
John A. Cooper, editor of the Canadian Courier, and
one of the principal figures in the newly-formed Canadian League, gives, through the columns of his weekly,
the objects of the league.   These are, briefly:
1, Tu explain to the newcomers who are pouring Into Canada
the nature of our governmenl umi our traditions and to Inspire In them
nn Intelligent devoUon to the country and Its Institutions.
2. To bring the people ol eaatern and western Canada into a
closer understanding of each other so thai they may ttiiiti' In a common
:i. To unite all citizens in non-partisan Bupport of national undertakings particularly those p rtalnlng to national defence.
i. To maintain Canada as a self-governing nation within thr
If the leaguers are sincere lhey have ready waiting
for them in the Hindu immigration problem a field of operations in which there is plenty of scope for patriotic
activity. The entire oriental immigration question, embracing the Chinese and Japanese phases as well, would
give tlie league a still wider fling, but, as the Hindu proposition is the most pressing of the three, it might be better for them to try their teeth on that bone first and leave
the other two for later mastication. For the benefit of
the members of the Canadian league it might be well to
point out just why the Hindu is an undesirable and to do
this clearly the man from India should be measured by objects of tlie organization as set forth above by one of its
prime supporters.
In the first place the league aims to inspire in newcomers to this country an intelligent devotion to Canada
and its institutions. This would seem impossible in the
case of the Hindu, who has proven himself in his own land
disloyal to the empire. Proof of this may be had by any
one who takes the trouble to read the daily reports of unrest and sedition in the Indian peninsula.
Secondly, the league would unite the people of the
Dominion in a common Canadianism. How many men in
British Columbia, who have been brought into close touch
with the filthy bodies and filthier minds of the Hindus on
these shores, would wish to associate with them on a common basis and accept them as fellow-citizens?
In the third place, the league undertakes to unite Canadians in non-partizan support of national undertakings,
particularly those pertaining to national defence, ln this
connection it would be hard to imagine a Hindu, the product of generations of despotic government, taking anything like a Canadian view of matters pertaining to the
gafety of tho Dominion.
Lastly, the league stands for maintaining Canada as
a self-governing nation within the empire. Resides thi?
high ideal there is placed in contrast the figure of the man
who is descended from the butchers of Cawnpore and
Calcutta and who today is busy spreading sedition in India.
If the Canadian League considers the Hindu problem
at all, it will be wise not to do so from an eastern viewpoint.
There are no Hindus in the east, except a stray mealv-
mottthed demagogue or two. who visits the cities and tells
gaping audiences of the indignities to which his countrymen are subjected out here. This sleek agitator always
dwells loudly and long on the brave Sikhs who have fought
for Britain,' but he never mentions the men who rocked
the world with horror by their doings at the black hole
of Calcutta and at Lucknow, or those who are playing the
Nihilist part in the Indian empire today.
The place to study the Hindus in their relationship
to Canada is in this province, where they are squatting in

ed lu high collars unfashionable nml
tiiu'iiuifoiiiibie, particularly during the

torlally upon feminine "suit cellars" tu

Just ami good cause of appearances,
Well, my dear, I'm happy now and

To  start  out  in   renl,  advertising

Wbnt I suy Is, that 1 leave subdued

Is ii thing of tbe near past. Vou know
that 1 um nothing, but "a mg anil n

It would be the height oi Bcldsbnasi
not to share wltll you who arts of the

Wben doing tlle exercises tbe neck
should lie quite Imre. The best place
Is to do tbem In one's kimono, nlgbt

tit the throat during the day
Now for the exercises:
rirst, stand erect, look straight it

quite still, let the chin sink Blowly till
lt reiti'bes the chest. Raise the chit
anil move llie bend backward ns fill

these movements from the to ten
times. The great thing to lemouihci
Is that nil bead and neck exert ises
must In? done slowly nml evenly
Quick, Jerky movements nre uselesi
uiul dungerous.
Second, raise tlie chin, bold your henil
rather In the position of B hen drink
lng nnd then turu tbe head, lirst to
thu right as far as It will go, tlieu la
tbe left   Do this tlve or ten times.
Third, hold the bend quite straight
and tnke a series of short, quick
breaths, pulling out the base of the
throat with encb breath. In addition
to these exercises you can If you tiki
massage Uie nock thoroughly with
beiizonnted bird every night; It make,

'Berlin. Dec. 15.���The report that
the kaiser is in financial strait3 is
partially confirmed by the Ftatement
that he contemplates selling one more
of his many castles
The expenditures of the Kaiser this
year have surpassed thue of any previous year of his reign. N'o one except
the Uaiser and his steward knows th?
exact figures, but it is roughly estimated that the marriage of his daughter,

who attended the jubll.e of the monarch, cost the kaiser more than $1,000-.
The kaiser made such a fuRs three
years ago about his civil list being incompatible with the dignity of the ruler of Germany that an Increase of
J600.000 a year was made, making the
total J4.800.000, In addition to which
the empire act of grace gives him
$700,000 a year more. He Is complaining neTcrtheless ot th? difficulty of
making ent?3 meet.
Thet Increase In the olvll list Is
largely offset by the Increased cost cf
living of both the court and army of
employees at the forty-five castles,
palaces, hunting lodges, opera houses
and'theatres. It is estimated that
1,500 persons are employed at the royal tbreatres and opera houses and the
difference between the box office receipts and the heavy expenses Is met
by the kaiser himself. The income
from the kaiser's private holdings ls
said to have largely decreased this
y.ar on account of the industrial depression.
May Sell Bijou Castle.
The Vosslche Zeltung says the kaiser may sell Mon Bijou castle, a valuable site near the centre of Berlin. It
waa Frederick tbe Oreat'* gift to. his
wife and Is now the Hohenzollern museum.
People are -wondering whether or
not the kaiser lost money In the
"Princes Trurt," formed by Prince
Maxmllllan Egon ron Fnerstenburg,
who his his closest friend. The prince's
Industrial enterprlsea and hla financial ventures have been unsuccessful.
He mortgaged recently property to the
value of more than $6,000,000.
The kaiser uses less than half his
castles or hunting lodges. It Is said
-that hs wlll sell eeveral lodge*.
The rlechstag and -the diet will take
np the problem presented by the rap-
Idly growing army of unemployed.
Many mass meetings have been held
In Berlin to discuss ways aad means
to relieve the serious condition. A
commission of Investigation reported
that there were more (han 26.00 or
ganlied workmen without employ-
n_en,t. Thua with the Immense number of unorganised worker* there are
altogether about (0,090 to 100,000 men
without work and thla army wtll be
increased after Christmas.
Statistics **ote�� nt on* of the meeting* showed that many law-abiding
working men and women are driven
