Canadian   trade and   holiday   demand
is   expected   to  be   of  record   proportions     Complaints of slow deliveries
of grain, affecting trade and collections, come from the nor'h west.
Higher prices In many lines are i �����
; ecti tl, partly from the wldesprea l
demand and also because of tariff revisions. Holiday trade in groceries
is active. Collections In the eastern
provinces are fair to good, but in the
grain-producing sections they are complained of. Montreal reports re-cr-
lers irge, i heese shipments are li0
per cen;. greater. Toronto reports
grain prices too high for export, common goods higher, and a record holiday trade is looked for. Winnipeg reports slow deliveries of goods from
the east and of grain from the west,
affecting trade.
Washington, Dec. 14.���In view of
complaints about car shortage resulting, it Is said, in failure to transport:
the necessaries of life and coal for
household use, the interstate com
nierce commission has sent the following telegram to the presidents of a
number of western and north-western
railroads: "From many parts of the
country and especially from your sec-
tlon the interstate commerce commission Is receiving numerous nnd
important complaints of car shortage
and failure to transport the necessaries of life. In various places of
the northwest it is represented that
people are actually freezing because
sufficient con! for household use cannot be procured owing to extraordinary delays In moving that article.
The commission therefore urges yon
to make every possible effort at once
to relieve the sufferings of those dependant upon the facilities of your
road." Signed L. A. KNAPP, Chairman.

ket   square  yesterday     morning,     by

the Lulu Island property listed for

reading the article, but hurried down
the city, and drafted out a large advertisement, embodying the Daily
News article, which he inserted in i.e
local and some of the Vancouver papers. Questioned yesterday afternoon as to the effect of thc location
of the carshopa <m Lulu Island, M-.
Hart said that there had been a constant si ream of inquirers for property
in the vicinity, during the day, and as
a proof that these had not been merely attracted to his office out of curiosity, lie mentioned the fact thai five

Did you ever figure on the proba-
ble size and immense Btrength ot
Mo. es, basing your calculations on the
dimensions of the tables of stone, as
given by the Talmudlc writers'.' In
tne Talmud (folio H8, column H> it is
said that the tables of stone upon '
which the commandments were written were six ells ioug. six ells broad
and three ells thick. In the Bible,
Exodus xxxii, lfi, we are told that
"Moses went down from the mount,
and the two tatdes of the testimony
were in his hand."
"Hand." mind you, not hands, though
it must be admitted that It would have
taken u strong pair of hands to perform the tusk of carrying them, eveu
on the level. Now, we will put Uie
Talinudic nud the Biblical accounts together and apply the mathematical
rule. The Hebrew ell or cubit was. at
Its leas* estimate, n measure of eighteen inches, whieh would have made
each of the tables a stone block niue
! feet long, nine feet wide and four and
one bait' feet  thick.   If common  stone
! weighed as much to the square foot
'.lieu us it does now tlie tables would
tip the beam at nbout twenty-eight
ton ! Wns Moses one of the giants
of those days or lias some one made a
mistake in calculations or in the siate-
ruent of supposed facts?   Exchange

We asked the other day, and ask
again now. what has happened to silence those patriotic editors whn. six
years ago, bowled iill the mountains
echoed because the Cabinel was not
filled for a few weeks?. Tbe McBride Cablnel has been short one
.Minister for eight or nine months, yet
these patriotic editors say nothing
about it. If a Cabinet vacancy, just
before a general election, was a thing
to write flaming editorials about six
years ago, it is much more a thing to
be denounced now. when the public
affairs of the Province have grown to
larger proportions; and ihe Govern-]
ment. declares that it intends to meet
the House once more before the election takes place.
If the Legislature it to be called together again, it should meet in a
month's time, and a new Minister
should have a chance to know a little about his department before it
does meet. Every day which the
Government allows to pass without
taking action In the matter, is a renewed  confession  of weakness.
What is happening to the work of
the vacant  department?
The Premier and the Chief Commissioner have been flying about the
comn ry during a great part of the
year, so that, for the most part, we

Pile  driving  operations In   connection  with the il.  X. R   spur to Mill-
side have once more been suspended,
and the contract will not, as was anti-1.
cipated, be completed   this    evening.
The difficulty arises from the manner'
in which the plans call for 'he driving of  the  piles across the  Brunette
Creek.     The  creek   will   need   to   be '
crossed by a span of "7 feet six inches,
and the piles according to the plans, \
are to be driven at an angle of about
30  degrees  across   tiie  stream.     The
mill   people  consider   -hat   the   piles j
being   driven   in   that    manner    will
spoil the general utility of the stream.
The matter is being discussed between
the people concerned and the pile driver is lying idle in the meantime,

so abstruse that it is doubtful if at
times he fully understood himself. One
day he wns profounder than usual. II"
lectured for nearly an hour nu topics
away over in the back of the book.
The class was dazed. It was far above
their heads, and tbey did not understand even the edges of it. When be
had finlsked, the old man took out his
watch nnd said genially: "Now, tliere
are ten minutes of tbe hour remaining.
If any student desires to ask me a
question, I shall be glad to answer it
to the best of my ability." Tlie class
sat in a stupor. Tlie professor waited
for a time and then said: "Is there tn

tire remaining several minutes tbat
could be profitably employed." Finally
one student put up a reluctant hand.

Natural Vari.t_.heii,
Fluid resins or oils from several different trees are extensively used in the
Philippines as varnishes. Oue of tbem,
called oil of supa. is u pale yellow
liquid when fresh, but it becomes dark
and viscous after contact with tbe
air. Spread in a thin layer it dries
slowly and forms a bard varnish. It
is also capable of being burned in a
lamp. Another natural varnish is ha-
lao, also called oil of apltong. It is
while when fresh, but darkens after
exposure and makes a very tough
varnish. Oil of panao is a third variety, inferior to the others in its drying
properties. Chemical analysis has
shown that all these wood nils consist
entirely of hydrocarbons known as sesquiterpenes

Mayor   Keary   Makes  Proposition  to  Railway  Official-
Suggests Giving Site for Car Shops on Lulu Island
In Exchange for New Bridge.
Following ii|i the suggestion made by
the 1 N'ews  a  few day.   ag i, a
���    a ��� Is about to be put forth
. ice the G. X. R. to build their
car shops In this city, and with this
en I in view. Mayor Kearj stated . ���������-
ij th it he waa prepare I to re   iru
:: end to the council that u by-law b.
.- ; imitte 1  to the  ratepayers ln order
to have their views on the question of
granting to the (1. N   R. company tl'.e
��� of lan 1 al ; re enl owned hy the
.���  the - i ith en I of the Lulu Is-
I md  bridge, on   condition  that   they
:  their    worksho] -    tliere.    The
of lan I  in que iti _ is   ibout 50
icrca in extent, an 1 has water frontage  of  2,0 0 feet,   an I   adjoins  the
...   .'.   propei ',���      In  return
this i  :. ession, the railroad corn-
\ i : , ,,_;���������" to build a substan-
, ross   ' i the  Island,  re-
resent  structure and  to
In ]   .;' tual repair,    Il is un-
tood that the  company would  be
ng :r yiii  up a  $75  bridge If
mil    - grante 1 to theni.
Ma; or Kearj state 1 that he had re-
c ntlj  h i i an Interview with a prom-
.:. nl  G. X.  R. official, and that  this
gentleman had been favorably Impres-
se 1   with   the   site offered,  an I   thai
there was  every  possibility   thai  the
iffli lals could  accept  the "ff>"'.
if it should be made by the city coun-
;.    in the i vent of the --rant being
the i ompanj   would    erecl    t
station    'h"!'''.   and
i    il least 300 men  ill the
��� .   ��� mnd.    The Importance of such
an   undertaking is   one thai   will   be
. a in    ;��� |er tood by the citizens, an I
bis w irshlp does n d believe that any
j ,rl ms opposition  would be ma le ' >
��� ...   ;ranl      \   bj law would have I i
be  su mltted   to   the   ratepayers   be
fore any definite Understanding could
be arrive.] at with the G. X. R., but
the mayor has no doubt that the verdict of ih" people would be entirely
in favor of the grant being made.
The building of a substantial bridge
and its maintenance by the railway
company would save at least $4,000 a
year to the city of Xew Westminster,
and the company is in a position to
put up a much hetler bridge than the
city. There wTttld be a clause Inserted In the contract that the bridge
must he open for traffic at any time.
and therefore the public would not be
inconvenienced  in  the  least.
The building of the car shops on
Ihe island would mean a substantial
rease in the price of the propertj
re enl Ij place': on the market by
.lex Ewen, and ll would also mean
a substantial increase in the population of this city, Mayor Keary thinks
that this Is an opportune time to make
the proposition to the represeutati. ���-
. ���' J, .1. Hill, as Vancouver is bucking
the G.  X. R  strongly al  the present
ue, an 1 thai citj is not in a position to offer any such advantageous
location for car shops as the proposed
site on l.ulu Island.
Another gentleman who is in close
touch with the (I. X. R. affairs was
spok 'ii t i las' evening about the proposition, ami while he declined to say
thai he knew anything officially, he
quite agreed with the mayor's statement with respeel to the desirable
location of the land across the bridge.
lie said that If J, J. Hill locale.I his
car shops in lhis city, it would lie a

As far a. wp are aware, it is unique

ls one of the handiest of coins, he 1
about as small as a silver piece em
conveniently be, l'eing less In R'.e and
weight than the nickel, which is worth
only half ns much, It is vastly more
convenient to keep and hoard, nnd 111:'.;
Is one reason why It Is becoming es

fact thai more dimes nre now turned

the country's history. Ihere is n rage

There was a very good market yesterday from every standpoint. Tlie
weather was good, the crowd of sellers wa.s well up to the standard, an
ther,' were enough buyers to keep
things moving in first class style.
Seldom has there been such an excellent display of beef on the market.
The various river boats were well
loaded with market produce, and the
bulk of it was dressed meat. The
beef supply was all sold at quotations.
Veal was somewhat scarce, and the
price advanced half a cent per pound
The demand was good, and the prospects are that it will become still
Pork is coming in in larger quantities, but the demand is considerably
In excess of the supply. The stock
on hand found a ready market at prices quoted.
Eggs have now dropped to SOc per
dozen, and the supply Indicated that
the feathered denizens of the tarm
yard were commencing to gel good
and busy. A large number of cases
were received at the markel and
found ready purchasers among the
wholesale dealers at 40c per dozen.
The chicken marke; is on the wane,
' ail the spring birds having apparently
reached the fowl stage. The offering In that department was not so
largi as ll has been, while buyers
were falling over each other to get
the first chance at the incoming birds.
Ducks of several varieties were offered and were somewhat more numerous than usual. There was a fair
demand for them and all were sold.
Ranchers are apparently saving their
geese for the Christmas trade, and
none were offered yesterday. The
standard price for them remains the
������ same as last week. Turkeys were
aNo conspicuous by their absence,
The offering of apples is falling off
and some of the stock on the market
was far from being up to the standard.
Some good boxes were offered, but
the demand was somewhat weaker
ihan usual.
The vendors of general produce for
domestic use were all In their accustomed  places,   and   their wares  were
well up to the standard.    The butcher-  had  a   tine  variety of meats  for
sale, and the stalls all breathed of the
��� approach   of  the   festive   season.

Iti all matters ot pentlment the
Arab's instinct is sure. If yon can
appeal to him on auy ground of hospitality or generosity, says the author
of 'In tbe Desert." you have a hold
on him.
It used to be the t>oa. t of Arab poetry in Its Irf-st days that it "never
praised a man except for what -was ia
h-tn," and the habit of judging directly _nd without regard to surroundings
Las always been an Instinct of the
race. All those evidences of worldly
prosperity and success which turn
the heart of the Anglo-Saxon to water
leave the Arab unmoved.
The Arab Is an artist in manners. I
remember a certain sheik, who was
once my traveling companion on the
Upper Nile, a tall, lean, keen faced
man. of a complexion almost black,
with a glitter on It like the sun polish
on desert stones, who walked among
the fellahs on the crowded deck like
a chief among his slaves.
With him I shared the same narrow-
con,er ' f the fleck He was strict in
Lis religious observances and at tte
appointed hours would spread his mat
on the de, k. turn In the supposed direction of Mecca and then kneel and
rise and kneel again, t-owing with

The eon.; ete height ot the cliff was

this latitude eroded billions of tons
which went to the upbuilding of Long
Island, trap bowlders being common in
the .oil of Brooklyn, and I have found
on the top of the Palisades opposite

while related activities thrust above
tlie surface, either as downpours or up

hills that chain the Carolinas to tbe
Bay of Funi/y, so that our Palisades
are allied in form and time to Mount
Holyoke and Cape Blomldon.
To the mineralogist our Palisades do
not yield as much of interest as we

Australia  Prosperous  Again.
Australia is in the flood tide of
prosperity. Her revenue is nearly
half a million sterling in excess of
the estimate, and for the corning
year the various states will receive
back from the commonwealth government more than ��.300.000 above
the minimum to which they are entitled. The distribution would be
larger still but for the very right

The London Lancet has been
warning its readers against the table
implements at restaurant.-, the doo:
handles of public places and vehicles
and, above all. the coin of the realm.
The merry microbe thrives on these
unnutritious substance., it seems,
and takes a malevolent delight in
imparting all manner of diseases to
the unwary. Knowing from experience that tiie Lancet approves of
few things to eat aioj drink, a coc-
temportary suggests that the human
race live in balloons and subsist oa
bananas and sterilized milk.

"What do you understand by the
Spanish main'-'" Such was the problem propounded at the club lunch table, and many and va. led were the answer*. In tin "Wreck of th'- Hesperus'' it was remetri^red that there
spake up "an old sail* who had sailed
the Spanish main." and It wa�� recalled
that in the "Ingolsby Legends" oae
says. "My father dear he Is not h -r> :
he seeks the Spanish main." There
was. howevi r. a certain vagueness
about the speakers' views as to what
particular thing was meant by the
word, some thinking one thing and
some thinking another, and only one
speaking with the authority of "an old
sailor who bad sailed tlie Spanish
main." Such a discussion tends to
show h iw satisfied most of us ar" to
half know q thing or to think that wo

"Gold wlr:, refined from all Impurities," said a jeweler, "and alloys of :.".

This means gold of twenty-four carats,
and this Is the standard recognized bj
the mint master and dealers in gold.
As a matter of fact, however, there i.
no gold so pure. Gold of twenty-two
carats is about as pure as it can be got
It has two parts of Bilver or one pari
of silver and one part of copper. The
copper darkens tbe color of gold, whi..
