Snd long discussion ensued after the
ag of several letters that have
passed between the people Interested
in the improvement. Some time ago,
,\. B. V\ bite, :is secretary of the board
of trade, wrote to ,1. 11. Kennedy, M.
P., calling liis attention to the fact
ti,ui ibe local post, office was no
longer adequate to the needs of the
city, and suggesting that it be placed
upon a better basis. He also mentioned that complaints were numerous
aa to the way the mail was handled.
Mr. Kennedy's reply was as follows:

Westminster Board of Trade:

lGth Inst., re dissatisfaction with the
operation   of the Xew    Westminster

simply ibe statement of the board of
trade that there i.s dissatisfaction. It
is the first complaint I  have heard,
and if complaints are various and per-
Bistent, as you  say  they are, I have
heard    nothing, of  it.     If  any    such
is necessary it would be well
that  :i    petition  should   be  got    up

Yours truly,
The  letter  was  read  over two or
three times    for the benefit of   late
and many comments   were
ed upon it.    A copy of the letter
���Tided    to  Mr.   Kennedy   by    the

Beneral   Impression   of  Beveral   present seemed  to  be that Mr.  Kennedy
was   under   the   impression   thai   the

T. S. Annandale informed the board
that he had noticed in the Daily Xews

Chicago, June 13. ���Employers that agree with President Roosevelt in his
anti-race suicide ideas can do much to advance the cause by granting their employes an eight-hour work day. This is the belief of the members of Typographical Union No. 16, who say the fact has been demonstrated in their own experiences.
The Typographical Union made pubHc yesterday a report containing much
interesting material on the subject. The officiah of the union profess to have established, among other things, a close relationship between the large family and
the short work day.
Since September 1, when tiie eight-hour schedule was put into effect in the
printing shops in Chicago, there has been a remarkable increase in thc birth-rate
among the compositors' families. )
The total number of births recorded during the period is twenty-four,
which, represents a 15 per cent, better showing than appeared for the preceding
ten months.
Another effect which the printers credit to the shortening of the hours of
labor is a lowering in the death rate among the members. From tables kept by
the union in former years the average mortality in the organization has been
forty out of a total of about 3,000 men. For the past ten months the records
kept by Secretary William McEvoy show a death list of only fifteen members.

The North Atlantic Trading Co.
(Prom tlie Toronto Star.)
Sir Wilfrid Laurier tells the House
of Commons that he has looked over
the list of the shareholders of the
N - th Atlantic Tra ling Co., and that
l.e finds thai the names nre those of
. onsible firms in Holland, Gor-
��� my 1 nd Russia. He offers to hand
the lisi to the leader of the opposition and to any committee that he
mighl s.-lect. This offer would surely
be regarded by any reasonable person as an evidence of good faith. If it
were accepted it would be easy for
Mr. Borden and his friends to satisfy
themselves that the firms were not
mythical, or disreputable. If they
found the contrary, their statements
to that effect would undoubtedly go
a long way with the country; not only
so, but they could take steps to dis- j
cover whether any particular name,
even the name of a genuine and re-
spectable firm, were a screen for Mr.
Preston���or anybody else connected
with the government. The offer
would hardly be rejected by any man
who did not prefer suspicion to accurate knowledge.

nn arrangement with the new provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta
under which 500 of the X.W.M.P.
force of the 600 would be retained in
those provinces, each of which would
pay $75,000 per annm towards the
cost of the forces. In connection
with the work of the police, Sir Wilfrid explained that they have for two
years been engaged in the work of
constructing a trail to Dawson City
through Canadian territory, so that
should the worst come to the worst
there would be means of communication with the Yukon over our own territory. The instructions to the police
v. ere that the route of the trail for
pack animals should be selected with
a view to its conversion into a waggon road in the future if necessary.

THURSDAY. JUNE   14,  1906.
A aispatch from Washington, dated
yesterday, says: The postoffice department has given out the following
statement: 'The universal postal
congress, recently in convention at
Heine, ordered a substantial reduction
in letter postage by increasing the
uni: of weight, effective on and after
October 1, 190?, from 15 to 20 grams
and providing thai while postage on
lhe flrsl twenty grains shall remain
a; 25 centimes (five cents) every additional twenty grams shall be at ihe
rale of 15 centimes (:i cents). Creat
Britain and the I'nited States strongly
ed ihat the unit of weight for these
countries should be fixed at. one ounce,
as ii would be extremely difficult for
them to express an equivalent weight
lor twenty grams, not having adopted
iln> metric system. This request was
granted aud this will give the two
countries exceptionally low rates for
the exchange of letters. Under the
reduced rates, a letter to Great Britain will cos; five cents for the first
ounce and ihree cents for the second
ounce or eight cents for two ounces.
1:, other words, when the new rates
become effective, a letter packet
weighing six ounces can be sen; to
Great Britain at the rate now charged
for a two ounce package."
This  will not affect Canada  as far
as letters to great  Britain and  most,
if  not  all,  of  the  colonies  are  concerned, as the "penny postage" agreement governs.   The change will make
no difference  to  the ordinary  letter,
which weighs less than half an ounce
a.s a rule. s��� that  the "substantial reduction" will be mainly for the benufit
0* those who  have occasion to send
heavy  letter  packets.     The  ordinary
letter from Canada will, therefore, lie
still   three   cents   cheaper   than   the
postal   union   rate,   while   the   letter
just   under   one   ounce   will   be   one
cent   cheaper:   after   that,   first   one
rate  and   then  the  other  is  a  cent
cheaper, until the weight, exceeds four
ounces,  when the advantage is with
the    "universal" rate.    The  variation
in the lighter weights is caused hy the
fact that  the "penny postage" unit is
one-half ounce, while the "universal"
i-: the full ounce.
fact that a constable, from whom a
man was running away, drew his ,

A Seattle paper, commenting on a
proposed gathering of politicians,
says "the gathering will recall the
famous cave of Adullam, in which all
who had a grievance flocked to the '
standard of Absolam." Probably the
writer of the paragraph knows more
about American politics than he does
about scripture history, a subject on
which Seattle editors are not exposed to be well up.

The office of the United States Ambassador to Britain has been held in
uninterrupted succession by so many
distinguished men that the ixisitiou
has come lo be held as part of a Briton's moral environment, like the Bank
of England, the House of Commons or
the National Debt. It is evident that
such established institutions as the
I'nited States Ambassador has come
to be regarded should comport themselves with due regard to all the other institutions with which they are
associated, aud should not be centres
of rapid or revolutionary change. But
] recently, without, a word of preliminary warning, Mr. Whltelaw Reed ex-
pressed himself on a notable occasion
ln a speech of which the delivery OC-
i cupied only a few minutes, and of
which the report could nol with decency be compressed. The effect of
this conduct on British public life
may be serious. The example may
be followed. After-dinner speakers
may confine themselves to the terse
expression of just what they have to
say, and no more. Such practices are
infectious, and if the contagion
spreads even the Houses of Commons
in Britain and elsewhere, and the political platforms, may be affected.
It  musi   be admitted that   Mr.  Reid
made   in   a   very   few   minutes    many
points, and expressed    ihem    with   a
fine art. He was presiding over   the.
annual dinner of the Newspaper Press j
Fund, and naturally his   theme   was
the  public  press.      lie spoke  well  of
British     newspapers,     though       he j
thought they were too Indiscriminate !
in their admiration of things American.    They are lending themselves, in
Air.  Reid's opinion, to the corruption
of the English language, which is proceeding constantlj  and    rapidly,   ani
has  reached  SO advanced  a  stage that
an Internationa] alliance for its pros-
i : vai bm seems necessary.
The burden of Mr. Whltelaw Reid's
advice to  liritish  newspapers appears
to be thai the quality mosl neded Is
sincerity, and the habit or attainment
most to be cultivated is thai of writing good English. This advice, it is
apparent, applies jusl as well to
wrlterfs on both sides of the Atlantic,
and most writers for the press will
accepl the ideals thus beld before
them. Bul it is one thing to wish to
preserve the language, and another
thing to discover the means by which
Hut end can be reached. Writers,
us a rule, wish 'heir writings to be
read, Km- thai purpose, perhaps, the
first essential condition is that tbey
shouhl have something to say worth
saying. The second essential is that,
their language should appeal to their
readers, and in this requirement, there
are, if not. two schools, at least two
conflicting tendencies. The newspaper writer can at the best expect,
what he writes to be read but once,
and that as a rule hurriedly. He feels
the temptation to use expedients to
catch the reader's eyes, for attracting his interest and for keeping it, at
any rate for a short time. Hence
he rejects at once words of which
there Is any chance that, they may be
unfamiliar. He employe only the
\ ocabulary of ordinary   conversation,
which is constantly changing, and in
which new words of every kind of
origin are constantly making their
appi arance, The writer for the newspaper, because of the ephemeral nature of bis work���even his aims are
too often ephemera)���is led into
changes of lhis kind more easily than
writers who work at leisure, and who
hope that their writings will he read
tm some years io come. Nevertheless, ihis tendency is not altogether
A rigid purism In language is only
possible at the expense of virility.
The English language is the language
of those who are alive and speak it.
If the only standard were to be that
of a past age, if the vocabulary of a
particular period or a particular
group of writers were to be alone ad-
mil ied, the consequences would he a
divorce between the spoken and the
written language. The business of
criticism in the matter of language
is to aim, not at fixing a nation's
speech in the form of a given moment
hut at restraining change within the
limits of the inherent laws and genius
ol the language.

Wedding  Bells.
Vesterday forenoon at 10 o'clock, at
ihi residence of H. E. Harvey, Fourth
avenue, brother of the bride, by the
Rev. P. H. McEwen, James Gourlay,
cne of the stalwart members of the
v\ell known Gourlay family of NIco-
lM n island, was united in marriage to
Emma E., youngest dauhgter of the
li.tc- Robert Johnson, and sister of
W. L. and H. E. Johnson, of the
R. C. P. M. staff.
After the ceremony the wedding
party, which was confined to relatives;
and intimate friends, sat down to a
sumptuous wedding breakfast, at the
conclusion of which the happy couple
left for Victoria, followed by the
hearty good wishes of their friends.
Numerous and costly wedding presents testified to the popularity of
Loth bride and groom, who will reside on the latter's farm on Nicomen
Sandy   Rae's   Horse   Hits   High   Spots
fcr   Green   Fields   of
Sandy Rae was led a long and fruit-
1< ss chase last evening, owing to the
sudden determination of his horse to
seek fresh fields and pastures new.
Tlie steed was tethered in the west
end of the city, and seemed to be
satisfied with life, when chancing to
raise its head, it caught a glimpse of
\erdant fields across the river. The
sight was more than the animal could
stand, and with a vigorous tug, pulled
the peg out of the ground and Btarted
on ;i wild career up Columbia street.
The police force, represented by Officer Mclnnis, wen powerless to stop
it. and representatives of the fire
brigade met with the same failure.
The horse galloped up the hill, and
swerving down made straight for the
bridge, paying no attention to the
keeper's cries for toll. He was seen
to disappear in the distance, heading
for Surrey, Before the keeper had
recovered from his surprise, Sandy
arrived on the scene, hut he had the
presence of mind to collect the toll
for the horse. Sandy travelled for
three solid hours across ihe river in
search nf his charger, bin wlthoul result. The horse is still lost.

Man With Tin Hat Produces Evidence
Workmanship and Character.
J. F. I'tley called at this office yesterday morning with reference to a
paragraph which appeared in yesterday's issue, in which mention was
made of a chimney sweep who wore a
tin hat having been requested by
Chief Watson to leave the city.
Mr, I'tley is a sweep, and also
wears a tin hat, but he wishes it to
be known Unit he has not lefl the
city, and has ho intention of doing
so until he has filled several orders
from customers. He had a disagreement with the chief of the fire brigade recently, as the chief claimed that
certain work done on the city hall
was nol satisfactory, but Mr. Utley
las cleaned chimneys for many private parties in the city, who are
satisfied with the work done. He is
also possessed of very good testimonials from persons for whom he has
worked. He also possesses testimonials of good character, and resents
the suggestion of the police that ho
could be in any way suspected of
being concerned in a recent robbery
