Trust Co. Changing Map of City
���Completion of Bridge Urged
The government proposal to subsidise the C.N.It. was the subject of a
letter which the I'tiion of Canadian
.Municipalities will take some action
on and which may react upon the exemption of taxation which the railway (enjoys.
The letter was from the Winnipeg
< ity solicitor, a copy of which was
considered last night at the city council and remitted to lhe finance committee for report.
It suggests that as the C.N.K. Is demanding certain concessions from the
government before granting these
concessions the municipalities should
be protected as to the payment of
taxes which the CNR. is evading or
As an instance local improvements
should not be handicapped by tax

"The public is suffering the burden
of railway exemption sufficiently now
without being called upon, not only
to subsidise Macki nils and Mann, but
also to save them from taxation, par
tlcularly  local  Improvement    taxes."
This concluded  tbe  letter.

is growing In favor of an effort to
substitute for the pending bill a resolution which would provide for the
submission of the dispute between
the United States and Great Hritain

Although senators who have' discuss

Senator O'Gorinau. leader of the
forces fighting repeal will not consent to arbitration it was said tonight
nnd the proposal will undoubtedly
meet with vigorous opposition among
senators on both sides of the Issue.
It was pointed out. however, that
before the hoUBe passed the repeal
bill the president was willing the
question should be settled by arbitration.
During the day three senators added their voices to those who see in
arbitration the best way out ot the
difficulty. Senator Sutherland asserted that arbitration was the one

Early, who contracted leprosy while
serving with the United States army
in the Phillipines in 1903, first came
into public notice In 1308 when the
health authorities of Washington. D.O.
pronounced him a leper. A bitter controversy arose over his case, scientists
disagreeing concerning the nature of
his disease-. In 1911 he settled on a
small farm near Tacoma and a year
later was pronounced a leper and removed to Diamond Head.
At the quarantine station he was
placed in charge of two other lepers.
one of them, Domlnig Pittori, escaped
a year ago. made his way across the
continent and found refuge in Italy
without   being   captured.
Early's escape rrom Diamond Head
was not discovered until Saturday evening when it was repeirted to Dr.

at Port Townsend. The manner of
his escape is not known. Some of the

Another Promising Well.
The strike at the McDoujtall-Segur
occurred some time yesterday. The
substance brought up In the baler is ,
black and greasy and burns, lt is
similar to a substance which was encountered in the Dingman well about
six weeks ago.
The McDougall-Segur is about 12
miles north and west of the Dingman
well and if It should be brought in it
would determine that the district is a
large one.
Fourteen standard drilling outfits
were ordered by telegraph today.
The management of the Dingman
well, at a meeting of the board of directors today, decided to make an el-
fort to pump the well dry enough to
permit of the resumption of drilling.
It is believed that a much larger flow
could be obtained if the oil sands were
penetrated    a few feet further.
More than 50 new companies are
said to be"in process of organization.
Half a dozen new ones make their ap-
pearance every day. The beautiful
weather permits outdoor trading and
many brokerage offices are little more

Royal Standard is cheapest
because it goes farthest.
It's falso economy to "f hop round" for your flour.
That cheaper brand you buy does not save you money in
the long run because you get less loaves per sack. We
will say that you pay 3.r.<: more for ROYAL STANDARD
than you do for the cheap brand. You can easily get seven
more loaves out of the sack to say nothing of healthier,
moree nourishing loaves.
Next time you buy flour don't think price, think
ROYAL STANDARD and in that way you will get most
in quality and quantity for your money.
Your grocer is ROYAL STANDARD wise.

A proposal to inaugurate a curfew
by law to compel youths under fifteen
of aEe. nol under guardianship, to
keep ol'f tbe streets al 8 and 9 o'clock
p.m.. at different periods of the year
was discussed but met from little
support from the city council last
night. Not lhat the aldermen were
lukewarm in their sympathy for any
action likely to clear the -streets of
young peopie at untimely hours, but
the invoking of policemen to take the
place of parents was felt to be ut-
', terly futile.
Mayor I'rny  staled  that the  bylaw
! passed  by  the council  required a  resolution  to make it effective, accord-
j Ing   to   the   city   solicitors.    The  resolution necessary was one that would
establish the ringing of a bell or the
I blowing  of  u  whistle  at  hours nam-
1 ed.     Tlie   police   commissioners   had
j taken the matter up but had resolved
to leave it to the council.
Alderman   Qoulet   moved   that    the
| matter be n ferred to the police committee for report.    He would not vote
I for it unless he thought the law could
I be   properly  enforced.
Alderman Annandale said there had
been a law to the same effect passed
some years ago and it had fallen Into disuse, lie had no faith or be-
I lief in it whatever. It was a matter
of parental control. Unless they were
j prepared to double the police to make
It effective they were wasting time.
Alderman Kellington spoke to the
same effect. Scaring children by the
threat of the police was not a proper
mode of achieving the object in view.
There are seventy miles of streets in
the city and one policeman for every
eight or nine miles. It would end
in cunning youngsters setting one as
a picket to warn others of the approach of a policeman and when (hey
found they could beat the police it
would incite them perhaps to try and
beal them in Other respects. He
would like to aid every women's so-
ciel to do good but he felt that if
thej msldered this proposal they
would "commend this proposal not
en      - it.

Two  Chinamen   Sue  for  Payment  on
Real Estate Deal.
In the county murt yesterday his
honor .Judge Howay, beard evidence
in the case of the Eraser Valley Investment company against two China
men for $07)0, the second Instalment
on a deal for two lots in Queensboro
at $'1200.
The peculiarity In the action was

company had signed a guarantee or
second agreement that if the pur-
rbapers were not able to resell the
property at a profit within a certain
New Vork. May IS. Former President W II Taft gave his views on the
Mexlcon situation yesterday In an address tit the Free Synagogue's celebration of Peace Sunday. While Loe former president expressed little hope
that the pending mediation conference
would accomplish its purpose, he declared that the offer of mediation and
its acceptance waa one important |
step towards the future settlement of
into;national difficulties In the western hemisphere. He asserted that
there is no popular pressure for a
military policy that the administration
cannot resist. He said that the people- were determined to do their duty
i ven should that, duty involve war.
Hut for war, he added, the people have-
at present little enthusiasm.
The criticism Mr, Taft levelled at
the  Wilson  administration  had  to do
with the aid which, he said, the admin-
: ���ration   had   given   to   the   Mexican!
ei ustltutlonaHsts.
'It ls my judgment," he said, "that
If In our course towards Mexico during
the past year, we had not exerted such
lireet influence as wo have to aid
one of the contending parties, we
should not now be so near general intervention and war."
He declared that 400.000 men and
two or three years' time and an ex-
pendlturo of $1,000,000 a day would
be required for the subjugation, of
Mexico should the present complications produce war. In conclusion he
called upon all Americans to aid the
president iu Iiis efforts to find peace.

to  a   Dutch   paper,  says:   "The  Indo!

"This union works more particularly in British India, but it is well-
known that its real sphere is very

established itself in North and South
America, in Australia, in the Dutch
Indies, in Turkey and in Egypt. Ostensibly the object of the union is ta
further commercial interests between

The News is the Morning
Paper of New Westminster
and the Fraser Valley. See
that your business announcements appear in its columns.
Nearly every successful advertising business began
in.a small way. Nearly all men who have really lost money
on advertising began in a big way. The advertising of
Pear's Soap and Lipton's Teas was started with comparatively small appropriations and it is only by careful and
close observation as well as thoughtful work that the advertising appropriations of those two big firms have
reached their present enormous proportions.
But an advertiser who failed for $300,000 a few years
ago spent more than that sum in hard cash before his accounts go so far behind that he was driven into bankruptcy with the deficit named.
An instance of careful and progressive advertising
may be related in which a store-keeper began inserting in
his local newspaper, once a week, a small advertisement
costing something under $15 an insertion. During his
first two weeks his takings did not increase at all and he
had been advertising on this scale for a couple of months
before he took enough extra money to pay his advertising
bill. Even then he was out of pocket but persevered (and
perseverance is just as necessary in advertising as in any
other work) and saw enough new trade by the end of the
quarter to give him a profit which paid the expense incurred.
He was now in this position, that he had earned exactly as much for himself as if he had not advertised at
all, and no more. This looked like getting change for a
dollar, but it was not. It represented much more than, a
hundred cents for a dollar. If this man had stopped
his advertising there he would still have been better off
than if he had not advertised at all, for his turnover was
increased by just the value of enough goods to yield a
profit equal to the advertising cost.
* He must have been a very incapable storekeeper if
he did not hold some, at least, of this trade. What he
did was to double his advertising expenses by running his
advertising twice a week instead of once. Trade steadily
grew and his only reason for not increasing his advertising further was that the capacity of his store was taxed
to keep pace with the volume of business.
This is a very ordinary and typical instance of small
retail advertising and the trade in which it occurred was
one yielding by no means a very high percentage of profit.
One point, however, should be remembered by everyone who attempts to make money by advertising. The products advertised must be good products. No one ever
did any good by advertising rubbish. No greater mistake
was ever made than the statement that "advertisiner will
sell anything." Advertising will sell anything that is
good; it will not sell-anything that is not good value.

years ago if lie had lived in a really
civilized country. Nevertheless, the
facts are not to  be  disputed.    They

of two of Murga's sons-in-law, and after torturing them until they revealed

with his own hand. Near Torreon in
September, Villa overpowered a federal force or 500, and every prisoner
was executed, ln Chihuahua he had
shot more than 160   non-combatant:*

followers ravaged with impunity. Th"
censored account of Villa's early career makes lt appear that he became
a criminal from some high motives,
that his Risttr had been outraged by
a government official, and that the
heroic Villa became an outlaw for the
purpose of avenging her. The facts
are that until seven years ago he was
just a Mexican bandit, robbing and
killin,- indiscriminately, and escaping
punishment partly through his own
cunning and partly through the na-
turp of the country where he had established  himself.
