.lames Herd of the Burnaby school
board, resigned Ills post last night and
precipitated for the third time In as
many months, a school board election
In   Hurnaby.
The sensation was further increased
when Trustee Churchland halted the

that It was of no use calling two elections, that bee could not sit e,n the
board any longer and that he felt Impelled to follow the lead of Mr. Herd

At the Inquest held over the body
of Samuel Mercer yesterday morning
evidence was brought out that McLeod seeing the plight of 'his fellow
seaman, who fell into the Fraser on
the night of March 10, dived Into the

but this did not deter McLeod from
risking his own life to save Mercer.
Both Coroner McQuarrie and Chief

Heard  in Another  Part of the
Alderman Annandale. at the meeting of the city council last night,

HI I'aso. Tex., April 27.���Tha relations between General Carranza and
(Jeneral Villa suddenly became the
one topic of conversation here today
when dissention of information that
was brought In by refugees and tbe
sudden departure of Villa for Carranza's headquarters In Chihuahua.
The two leaders will meet tonight,
perhaps to compose their differences
! over tbe attitude which the constitu-

Refugees brought word that affairs
between them had reached a stage
where one or the other must accept
a distinctly second position in the revolution.
Villa had contemplated a longer

took place Saturday and the fact that
it was permitted by Qeneral Huerta
was construed as an indication of the
weakness of his power.
The rebels are said to have been
gaining ground in the territory close
to Mexico City. Pour hundred federal wounded were brought into the
capital  Friday  from   nearby  points.
A train which reached here riis
morning brought many British, German antl French residents, but only

Huerta Fears Assassination.
The refugees are responsible for a
report that after a demonstration
Huerta became so frightened that he
bid himself In a foreign legation, fearing assassination.
Refugees say that prior to the
change in sentiment at the capital
lour Americans were seized by one of
the mobs, which insisted on lynching
them. Their lives wore saved by the
intervention of the police, whose commander promised the rioters he would
shoot the prisoners, but promptly released  them.

If Canada had not the opportunities to offer newcomers she might be in a different position, one which would
force her into the emigration markets to bid for any and

than   the   president   himself.   Hsiung
Hsl   Lung,   the  premier  and   finance
minister, is a man  whose reputation 1
for character and intelligence stands !
high.   The same may be said for Sun j
Pao Chi, the minister for foreign af-
fain, and Chang Ohien, the minister j
of industry.   Li Yuan Hung, vice-president of the public and  general commanding the army in Central China, is |
generally   regarded   as  a   remarkable
and  patriotic man.  but since the autumn   he   has   resigned   his   position.
The future largely turns on the pow-
eir of these men to handle the present
situation   with   hone-sty   and   common
sense.    Their advent  to  posts of authority,  and   the  improved   standards
of administration with which they are

Canadian Capital.
Asked if he could give an Idea of
the   amount   of  Canadian  money   in-
i vested in enterpries in Mexico. Mr.
Lukes stated that it was impossible
to estimate, and it would, also, be
very difficult to say how many Canadians were in Mexico at the present time.    He understood that, in re-
I sponsi" to a circular sent out by the
British authorities, some considerable
I time  ago.  British  residents  had   reg-
I isted.    The report had  been  sent to
I the imperial authorities, but had not.
ihe   believed,   yet   been   made   public.

I Mr. I.ukos knew more of the subject
than he did.    As for himself, he had
j no opinion to express on the matter.

Of his company had not been prejudi-
i cially  affected  from  the situation  in
I Mexico Tlie earnings for last month
showed 8 considerable increase over
these1 e t the previous period. The reduction n the dividend was not due
to any reduced takings, but to the
drop in the rate of exchange. He could
not Bay  what  effect  a war would  be
, likely to have as against the interests
of the company, except that war was
always a had thing.

tbe situation in Mexico bad, for some
considerable   time,   delayed   them   in
i their   work.     The   tearing   up  of  the

said to have been busy throughout the
week-end at Weston, causing two fires
early Sunday morning, which, though
not serious, gave cause for considerable alarm in view of the fact that
there had not previously been a fire !
in  Weston for several  years.
The first fire broke out between
1:80 and 2 a. m. in the premises owned by William ('hruickshank and rented by Son firos., who conducted ���
laundry, but the firo brigade., which
was called out for the first time since
its reorganization, was able to subdue *Tie flames before considerable
damage was done. Approximately |800
was lost, including $100 worth of the
Westons' underwear.
The second outbreak occurred sim
iiltaneously with the first one', partially destroying a shed In the rear of
Iteeve Irwin's house. Hut here again
the firemen were able to d< teat the
efforts of the fames.
That thi' outbreaks are the reBUli Of
Incendiarism is conti nded cm account
of the fact that im fire of any kiml
had been used by the occupants for
some hours previous to the outbreak
In the laundry, and that ,-pccial precautions bad been taki'ii on Saturday
night  to   prevent  the  possible  Igni
tion of the inflammable material contained in the. building. The occupants protested that they knew no
possible cause of the fire, and were
at a loss to explain its origin last
The same' mystery surrounds the
fire in the rear of the reeve's house.
Here again no fire had been used in
Ihe building, and no possible cause can
be suggested. Practically no damage
was done to the building.
Ottawa. Ap-il 27. There was no
Irish stew on the menu al the King
Oeorge hotel Saturday night, but in B
secluded and shady spot on Slater
street four merry pieknickers gathered round a vast iron pot holding 125
pounds of compounded deliclouaaese
of beef and potatoes and onions and
dumplings. Hands were plunge fearlessly into the steaming mass to bring
forth  the ^astronomical  trophies.
Sergeant McCarthy was responding
to the telephone alarm from the manager of the King George when he
came upon the quartette, and, waiting
only to grab one last morsel from the
pot, they  fled.
"I don't know how t.hey got It." said
Mr ('ashman, manager Of the hotel,
"but the four must have- come into the

New York Thief Makes Sure of Getaway���Loot Valuec
Close on $20,GCO.
New York. April 27. Six custom- I
i ers were looking over jewelry in Kos-1
; enthal's Curiosity Shop. Broadway,!
j when a young man, wearing a rain '<
' coat and soft hat, appeared outside |
I the show window. I
In the chop, besidese the customers, |
i were  four clerks and a girl  cashier. |
| The man quietly entered the vestibule j
drew a long chain and padlock from ;
, his pocket, made a loop in the chain, !
'and, placing It around the door knob, I
'drew It taut to an iron bar, fastening
! the door so that it could not be open-!
i eel  from   Inside.    To  make  sure  the
chain would not slip he put a padlock
on it.
Chains Door.
Because of the storm not many persons were on Broadway at the time.
After chaining the door the man quietly stepp.'d outside the vestibule and j
ieee,ki"l into the window, where were
many trays of jewelry.
At the same time some one tried to
get out of the store, to find that the
door would not open.    The man then
threw a  brick through  the    window.
The breaking of glass did not sound
| loudly   on   the  street,   but   the crash
j startled   p<  sons   In   the   store.   The
I mas   thtn   calmly  helped   himself  to
i the most valuable jewelry In the win-
��� dow.
The customers and clerks screamed.
| Several of the    men sounded    police
I whistles.     The   robber   continued   to
I stuff diamond  rings and other  valu-
i able articles into his pocket.
Ties Doors Up.
Patrolman   Burdick   of   the   West
I Thirteenth street station, was half a
1 block   away   and   heard   the   wistles.
As he  came  up the  man dashed  to
the  Sheridan   building  at   No.    19C8,
j which runs through to No. 6111 Sixth
: avenue.
Entering, the man drew a rope
from his pocket and tied the doois
shut. He was still tying when Burdick ran up and tried to enter. Finding the doors roped, the patrolman
began to rattle them. The man ran
through the hall, out the Sixth avenue
entrance  and  escaped.
The persons in the jewelry store
were released and a general alarm
was sent out for the robber. Those
who saw the man agreed that he was
not more than 26 or 27 years old.
Rosenthal said that night that it
was impossible for him to name an
accurate figure, but between $15,000
and $20,000 worth of diamonds and
other jewelry had been  stolen.
The police believe that the thief
carefully planned the way he would
rob the window and escape, and chose
tlie storm of last evening as an opportune time.
