NEW MANAGER IN OFFICE   \
  i
At twelve o'clock noon today D. J. McQuarrie
formally took up the duties of local manager of the
B. C. Electric Railway company, having been pro-
moted to the position at a meeting of the directors
of the company held yesterday af ernoon in Vancouver. The choice is one that will give genera! satisfaction to all concerned, as Mr. McQuarrie is well
known both here and in Vancouver. He has been
connected with the company almost|since it was first
started, having entered the service over twelve years
ago. For three years he was in the local freight office and in the ticket office for the same period, and
he will therefore be familiar with the work that he
has been appointed to do.
Although not born here, Mr. McQuarrie is looked upon as a native son of New Westminster having
lived here since boyhood. He is a son of L. McQuarrie, the well known contractor, and a brother of N.
J. McQuarrie. the city treasurer. Mr. McQuarrie
moved to New Westminster yesterday and will reside
here in future.
F. R. Glover, who recently designed his position
as local manager, will remain here for a few weeks
longer to assist his successor in taking over the work.

to advance money for the rebuilding

The promoters of the enterprise at
first argued Ihat $10,000,000 capitalization would provide an ample vehicle
I'or handling hundreds of million of
investment, but it was found that San
Francico favored a much larger capitalization than the $10,000,000 at first
proposed. Plans for the perfecting of
the huge corporation will be adopted
today and it is now expected that all
of iln- preliminaries will be completed
this week and the work of advancing
$100,000,000 or more for the re-construction of the destroyed city will begin  within thirty days.

erect stations very shortly In Vancouver, Victoria, Port Essington, Skag-
way, Juneau, and Ketchikan. Already
the company has stations at Nome and

WESTMINSTER,   8.   C.
Some time on Sunday night or early
on Monday morning miscreants again
did considerable damage to the property of the B. C. Telephone company
In Vancouver by cutting cables containing the wires leading to "Central".
As a resull 140 telephones were pul
out of business. The cables cut were
principally in the east end. the districts affected being as follows:
Cable No. 22���Corner of Nelson and
Burrard streets.
Cable No. 50���Corner of Powell and
Carrall mre is.
Cable No. 56���Corner of Cordova
and Carrall  streets.
Cable No. 57���Corner of Cordova
street and Westminster avenue.
Nearly all of these cables are located on thoroughfares where people are
passing at all hours during the day or
night and how the miscreants were
not detected by the police or some
passerby is a mystery.
A couple of weeks or so ago several
cables south of False Creek were cut
whereby the Vancouver General hospital was shut off from communication, a matter which entailed considerable inconvenience and which might
have resulted in s,Tions consequences
had an accident occurred in any part
of the city, as the ambulance could
not have been obtained or doctors
summoned. This latest outrage was
equally serious as not. only was the
police station cut off but the flre alarm
system in a large portion of the city
wns also rendered useless. The Telephone company has offered a large reward for the capture of these miscreants.

Mrs. Blaine Tells Plans.
"Yes, it is true that I am going to
Sioux Falls to obtain a divorce. My,
friends have believed that for some
time but it has been only within the
last few days that I have made up
my mind to go. I shall leave Washington Saturday with a companion.
My mother's health is not sufficiently
robust to permit her io go and so I
shall have the chaperonage of an ol'
friend.
"1 am not familiar with the divon
laws of South Dakota, and so I cann,
say definitely on just  what ground
shall  ask  for  a separation.    I  have
consulted  counsel  in  New York,  and
my lawyers in South Dakota are now
working   on   the   case.   I do not feel
1 at liberty to give the name of the New
York  firm   which  has been  attending
to my affairs, and, to be very truthful,
1  do not yet know  what  firm in the
West is to take the case.
"1 aim anxious to spend as short a
time in tlie West as possible, for I
hope to be with my parents for the
summer in New London, Conn.
No Idea of Marrying Again.
"I cannot say anything more definite
about my future or the details of the
contemplated proceedings, because my
lawyers have instructed mo not. to da
so.
"There is one thing which I can
say, however, and that is that I am
not thinking of getting married. YoU
know one must always 'unfix' things
before they can be fixed over, and
that is my case exactly. Somehow
the Impression hns gained ground, and
I shall be so glad if you will say that
my whole attention just now is fixed
on getting 'unmarried,' and not on
getting married again.
"I do not know the situation in
Sioux Falls, how long I shall have to
remain there, or just what difficulties
I shall have to overcome when I do
get there, but I shall go. and when I
am once there I shall bj better able
to tell just what I shall have to look
forward to."
Few girls have been so popular In
social Washington as Martha Hlchborn. She was always in demand for
dinners and entertainments because of
her beauty, wit, and personal attractiveness.
Parents Opposed Match.
For several years it was understood
that she was to be married to Lrooke
Baker, a prominent young clubman of
Washington, but suddenly her engagement to James G. Blaine was announced and society was startled.
It was said that Admiral and Mrs.
Hlchborn strenuously opposed the
match but in this, as in all other
things, Miss Martha had her own way,
and was married July 1, 1901. She
lived for more than two years with
Mr. Blaine, and, although there were
many rumors that the pair lived unhappily, it was not until a little more
than a year ago that Mrs. Blaino returned  to her parents'  home.
A few months ago Mr. Baker married an actress, the former wife of
Aubrey Boucicault.
Alleges  Cruelty  and  Desertion.
Mrs. Blaine wlll apply for a divorce
on the grounds of cruelty and desertion. This was learned today from a
close friend of the Hlchborn family.
.lames G. Blaine is well known In
Washington and New York. The eon
of the famous statesman has been
married before. His first wife was
Marie Nevln of Ohio, who, after obtaining a divorce from him, married
Dr. Bull of New York. Mr Blaine served
in the Spanish-Am, rican War, having
been appointed an adjutant-general on
Gen. Wesley Menitt's staff. Soon
after that he was ordered home and
was discharged.

A   RIPPLE   ON   THE   SURFACE.
Mr. E, Ii. Sawyer, sometime manager
f lhis paper, lefl town last week and
n Monday the;',' was received from
..iim a letter Btating that it was not
his intention to return, in order thai
no misapprehensions might arise, it
was deemed wise to call together the
local shareholders of the company,
and accordingly they met Monday
evening and talked over the matter.
As the whole affair concerned the
business of ihe company ami affected
that only by making a slight rearrangement of staff necessary, Uie
Daih .News of last evening iliii nol
mention tlie matter, 'l'lie Columbian,
however, having made a front page
"feature" of the affair in iis issue of
yesterday, taking advantage of the departure of Sawyer to print a would-
be funny article, the real object of
Which���or ai least the principal object���seems to lie to create an impression that the late manager's somewhat
sudden exodus had caused, or would
lause, embarrassment in the affairs of
.lie company, IK ,ocomes necessary to
say that thc Insinuations contained in
the article ref, 'red to are to be completely account I for by ibe ,,l,l saying "ihe wl . father to the thought."
Neither tbe share! ilders nor tho dire, tor, have tftc ��� itesl Intention of
abai. 1, ' ing���nor ,1,, they see any reason ���, ' ��� they should abandon 'he
public,   .on   of   the   Dai!;,    New.-.     On
the < atrary, shorl as is the rune
whicl ,us elapse,! sine,' iis establishment, ihe experience gained lias been
abundantly sufficient to demonstrate
not only thai the paper is a most
useful addition t,, the enterpris is of
tlie community, but that the prospect
ot such commercial success as will
make it a good property arc very
bright.
All lhis, as has been said, is mailer

1ANN��R^>  OF   NEW   HOUSE.
A late Issue oi a leading London
weekly has an entertaining article by
a regular contributor of the manners
and habits of the new House of Com-'
in: ns. Its manners, he says, "have
not suffered by lhe change in its com-;
position. Labor members may be Irreconcilable in policy, but personally
they are, as a rule, tolerant, amiable
men. They are no more noisy than
any other class during debate, and instead of shouting they seem to smile
in. opponents."
"Living is less expensive under the
intv rules. The one shilling menu includes, joint, two vegetables, pudding
and broad and choose. This is uot a
win,-drinking parliament, nor is it a
dandy parliament, Although a serious
parliament it displays a good deal of
humor. The example is set by the highest authorities. Sir Henry Gaimpbell-
Bannerman leads the house, just as he
governed Ireland more than twenty
years ago, wilh jokes thai are worthy
of Thrums. Mr. .1. W. Lowther is the
boldest and least conventional speaker
Hie house has had for more than a
generation. He knows its moods by instinct and he dares at times to jest.
Xo ono can be stricter, but he frequently brushes aside a point of order,
or subdues a threatening storm by a
joke. The most significant feature of
the now house is its power. The new
House of Commons is not a registering ofiice; it is the master of the country. The strongest minister seeks its
guidance and da'es not disregard it."
,i ,,.\ ,rie.se means ���ne is rot auie rr> �����
cure herself In <;,>,>,1 Measure against
the inconveniences this scurvy tjuality
In her husband might bring upon her."
All the frailties of poor, erring husbands are here set forth, singly, iu
plain, unmistakable language, neatly
docketed, oaeli with tlie recipe for CUM
appended thereto.
There are other interesting passages
in Uie same book. Of spinsters tbe author says: "An old maid is now thought
such a curse as no poetic fury can exceed, looked on as tlie most calamitous
creature in nature. Modesty and Obedience, though necessary to all, an1
yet in a more eminent degree required
here. Their Look, their Speech, their
whole Behaviour should own a humble distrust of themselves." Concerning amusements this: "The reading of
Romances seems now to be thought t lie
peculiar and only becoming Study ol
young Ladies. It must be confessed
their Youth may a little adapt it tc
them when tbey were children, and
we wish they were always in theii
event as harmless."
Of another vanity: "There is also an
other great devourer of Time���we mean
Dressing. Sure 'tis allowable upon a
soberer account that those who desigr
Marriage should give themselves tb��
advantage of decent Ornaments anc
not by the negligent lluden&s of theli
Dress bely Nature and render them
selves less amiable than she has mail*
them. But, all this being granted,
'twill by no means justify that execs'
sive Curiosity and Solicitude, that Ex
pense of Time and Money', too, which is
more used."

Imitation of the Bourbon he had helped

to artists, since it has an Inn where
any one, by painting a picture on ths

Island of Capri, with its perennial
summer, Its blue grotto aud its lemon
groves, went some fifty years ago an
artist almost on tbe verge of ruin. He
opened an Inn and died rich. In bis
will, leaving the inn to his heirs, he
made these conditions:
"The charge per day, two bottles of
red Capri wine included, is never to be
more than 0 francs. If any artist ls
too poor to pay he shall paint a picture
upon some w��.ll space, receiving all
the accommodations accorded to those
paying the highest price. If any German artist shall come to the lnu be
shall be ateommodated and shall receive tho amount of his fare to Germany upon bis promise never to return
to Italy."
The inn is conducted today on these
conditions. Its walls are covered witli

Vilhyalmtir Stefansson, associate in
ethnology at Harvard university, anthropologist to the Anglo-American
Polar expedition was in Winnipeg last
week, making final arrangements with
the Hudson's Bay company for his
long journey overland to the mouth of
the MacKenzie river. He left Friday
morning, taking with him a small
package Of scientific treatises, dealing
with questions of ethnology und a
high speed rifle, with a supply of costly ammunition. All the clothing carried by him was what he was wearing
at tho time of departure. On arriving in the polar regions, he wil discard all European garments and assume the garb of the Eskimo, which
he will continue to wear until he
again  reaches civilization.
Mr. Stefansson is a bright young
Harvard man, who formerly resided
i.i North Dakota. He was, for several
years a student In the State univer-
.sitq, from which he passed to Harvard,
and pursued studies ln his chosen department for three years in the famous Peabody museum. In addition to
his .studies In the university, he assumed the duties of a journalist, and
during all   vacations   acted   as  a  re-

some misunderstanding, the two members of the party failed to meet hereg

Poultry experts and farmers in all parts of the world
unite in placing Oatmeal as the basis of all reliable
chick food. The large poultry breeders for exhibition purposes, in England and the Eastern States,
who frequently mix their own special chick foods,
invariably order their Oatmeal from the leading
Rolled Oats and Oatmeal Mills; by so doing they
insure having the finest Oatmeal. It is because we
are Cereal manufacturers and much the largest buyers of the best oats in the whole of Western Canada
that we are in a position to produce the celebrated
.&K. Chick Food
which is now so popular amongst poultry farmers
that it is not only selling by the sack but by the
carload. It is packed in 25, 50 and 100 lb. bags.
It is not only the best food for chicks, but also the
cheapest on account of our facilities for purchasing
the purest ingredients in very large quantities.

Stefansson, associate in
Harvard  university,  auto tho   Anglo-American
Polar expedition was in Winnipeg last
week, making final arrangements with
the  Hudson's  Bay  company   for    his
long journey overland to the mouth of
the  MacKenzie river.  He left Friday
morning,    taking with him    a Bmall
package of scientific treatises, dealing
with  questions    of ethnology    and a|
high speed rifle, with a supply of cost-1
ly ammunition.   AH the clothing car-
ried by him was what he was wearing
at  the time of departure.    On  arriving in the polar regions, he wil discard  all   European  garments  and  assume the garb of the Eskimo, which
he  will    continue to  wear  until    he
again reaches civilization.
Mr. Stefansson is a bright young
Harvard man, who formerly resided
i.i North Dakota. He was, for several
years a student in the State unlver-
sitq, from which he passed to Harvard,
and pursued studies in his chosen de-
par;inert for three years in the famous Peabody museum. In addition to
bis .studies in the university, he assumed the duties of a journalist, and
during  all   vacations   acted   as   a   re
porter for the Boston Transcript.
The plan of the gentleman control
ling the   Anglo-American    expedition
was, that Mr. Stefansson .should meel
Dr. Howe, the physician to th,- expedition, in Winnipeg, and that they should
| go to Calgary together;  but owing to
' some misunderstanding, the two meni-
; bers of the party failed to meet here,
; and Dr. Howe left on Monday evening
for Victoria,  where he will    join the
[tarty, which sails on May 15th.

"My preparations are now complete,"
' said the ethnologist  to  a   Free Press
1 reporter, "and I shall travel over the
Canadian Northern to Edmonton, from
where  we go overland  to Athabasca
Landing, where we take the river tO'
Athabasca Lake.    From  the lake we
| run down the Slave river to Greater
Slave Lake, out of which we pass into
the Mackenzie. I understand that there
are one or two portages to be made,
and that we will get the Hudson's Bay
steamer Wrigley on  the Slave river.
The steamer will carry us to Fort Mac-
pherson, from which point I expect to
reach Herschel Island by whaler. The
trip down the Delta of the river to the
mouth is a distance of about one hundred   miles,  and   Herschel   Island    is
about  one hundred miles west of the
river mouth.   We will leave Athabasca
Landing between June 1st and 3rd, and
will arrive at the mouth of the river,
If all goes well, between the llth and
16th of July.
On the way down the Mackenzie, we
pass through a country of very greal
interest to    the anthropologist.    The
Athabasca Indians, although constantly visiti',l  by white men, have never
been made the subject of careful scientific observation.    The Indians of the.
rl .-ion belong to the Athabasca family,
although    the family is divided    into
numerous tribes, speaking varying dialects.   Many fugitive Indians, of every j
known    tribe,  are  also    undoubtedly
now in this north country, and I understand there are some Crees along
the Mackenzie.
"There is a slight possibility that
the sailing vessel, in which our main
party leaves Victoria, may not succeed
in reaching the mouth of the Mackenzie during the summer of 1906. This
would not matter very materially to
the balance of the party, as their duties are partially performed on the
way north and west. My work, on
the contrary, is wholly with the Eskimo, and an entire year would be lost
Portland, Or., May 15.���A special to
the Oregonlan   from Pendleton,    Or.,
gives  the  account  of  the  mysterious
burning of a freight car near Foster,
Or.,  aud   the  death  of  two  persons,
one of whom is thought to have been
murdered and the  body  consumed in
the flames.    The other was shot by
a member of a sheriff's posse under
the belief that he was the murderer.
The car was one of an O. R. & N.
westbound freight train and contained
the household goods and two horses
of Col. S. W. Taylor, commandant at
Fort Worden, Wash.   It was in charge
of  Private   Wilson,   Twenty-fifth   Battery,   Coast    Artillery,   and   was    en
��� route   from   Fort   Riley,   Kansas,   to
Port Townsend, Wash.
According to Wilson's statement,
while he was currying one of the
horses about 7 o'clock this morning,
the animal kicked him in the breast,
causing insensibility. When Wilson
came to, he says that he found the
car on lire. He turned ihe horses
out of the moving car and they were
killed in falling to the ground. Wilson says he then made his way over
the cars to the caboose, where he
notified the trainmen, who cut the
car out at Foster siding.
After the car had been cut out, a
body, which, it is stated, may have
been either that of a man or woman,
fell out of the end of the car. A physician says this body shows idica-
tions of foul play.
While the train was still standing
at Foster a man who had been on the
train declared that there were two
tramps riding in it. and that both 'Aad
been burned to death. This man hurriedly made his escape.
Fugitive  Is Shot.
A sheriff's posse followed him and
rain down a man near Pine City, a few
miles west of Foster, who was thought
[ to be the fugitive.   When ordered to
surrender he made a motion as if to
' draw a revolver and was shot and fatally wounded by Officer Otis McCarty.
This   man   before  he   died   gave   the
name  of John Condley, of Pendleton,
Or.    It is said he is not the man for
whom the posse was hunting.   Wilson,

zie river during the summer of 1906.
For this reason, I go north overland.
If during the summer, our vessel arrives at Herschel Island, the plan then
is that we should go east and locate
near to some Eskimo village. I will
then be able to spend the day with
the natives and still live on board
the boat. In the event of the vessel
not arriving, I will leave Herschel
Island and proceed eastward alone. I
will carry nothing with me except a
few trinkets for the Eskimo, and will
endeavor to find some village, where
the winter can be spent.

Poultry experts and farmers in all parts of the world
unite in placing Oatmeal as the basis of all reliable
chick food. The large poultry breeders for exhibition purposes, in England and the Eastern States,
who frequently mix their own special chick foods,
invariably order their Oatmeal from the leading
Rolled Oats and Oatmeal Mills; by so doing they
insure having the finest Oatmeal. It is because we
are Cereal manufacturers and much the largest buyers of the best oats in the whole of Western Canada
that we are in a position to produce the celebrated
B. & K. Chick Food
which is now so popular amongst poultry farmers
that it is not only selling by the sack but by the
carload. It is packed in 25, 50 and 100 lb. bags.
It is not only the best food for chicks, but also the
cheapest on account of our facilities for purchasing
the purest ingredients in very large quantities.

his dressing room to wait for the hall
to empty. The audience had no idea
of going, however, and, crowding to
the open door of his room, where a
cordon of club members stood guard,
It shouted his name at the top of Its

After a wait of twenty minutes
Gorky decided to try to reach the

women fought to get to his side, and
scores, slipping on the highly polished
floors, were trodden on by their compatriots. Unable to get to the door
once more retreated to his dressing

Here a council of war was held and
a final move decided upon. Forming

The prospect of obtaining a weekly

last evening, where the advisabilty

necessary   for   all   the   merchants   to
i decide to close, as otherwise the whole
i
! thing would be a farce.
.1. .1. Johnson followed wiih a speech
that  was list,-n,-,i  to  wiih  attention,
saying thai  unless the matter can be
mail,'  a  genuine  one, and  unless the
in, reliant-<   go   into   ihe   scheme   de.
termlned  to  see  it   through,  it must
Inevitably tall flat, It should be a very
easy matter in a town of ihis size to
Introduce the half-holiday system without   the   merchants   losing   a   single
dollar over it.     lie  would  be  pleased
for one to acquiesce with any proposi
lion ihat Uie meeting make along the
lines suggested by the chairman,   lie
called attention  to the 11. C. Electric
I Railway   company,   in   the   profits   of
j which   all   employees  have    a  share,
land      while      it      might      not        be
| for      a    large     amount,      still       the
system   was   on#   that  interested   the
| employee in the work in which he was
engaged, and when a clerk sees that
his interests are being studied by his
employer, greater interest is taken in
the  business.    He informed the meeting that he was one of the first two
buslnss men who agitated for an earlier closing at the time that all stores
closed  at  10  o'clock  every  night excel,!   Saturdays,   when  they   remained
open until Sunday morning. He was
Btrongly in favor of the pro,,used Wednesday afternoon closin---
C. Mi -Cowan contrasted the position
of the store clerks with thai of the
mechanics, and pointed out that even
.���, b the we In, sday afternoon, the
clerks will still be working half a
I day a week longer than the mechanics.
George Blakely speaking as a hardware man said that as far as liis firm
was concerned he was willing to close
on the Wednesday Instead of on the
Saturday afternoon as ai present
I., ii. Lusby spoke several times
on the subject, and said thai he believed that the hardware clerks were
satisfied with the Saturday afternoon,
but that it' they were anxious to
change the day, he would have no objection.
C. B. Deane, grocer, said thai he
would not. close unless it was for the
whole afternoon and evening, but under those conditions he would be only
too willing to'fall in line wilh the rest
of the merchants.
F. S. Smith, dry goods, suggested
closing from the IBth of June to the
15th of August for iii, Brsi year as an
experiment, bul bis suggestion nol
meeting with the approval of the resl
of the n,er,'hams present, he announced that he would be willing tc
close his establishment during ilw
three months.
Aid. Adams nexl proceeded to make
a few remarks, during which he emphasized   the  necessity   of all   closing
on   the   same  day,  saying  thai   if  one
branch    closed    on    Wedn, slay    and
another  on  Thursday   and   so  on  the
whole   thing    would   be  a   farce    and
would  very soon  fall  through.    They
must all work together In this matter,
ami as Wednesday was theslackesl day
in  the  week, that   was the besl  day
on   which  io  close.    He  was  nol   in
favor  of  closing   for  less  than  three
months during the summer.   In reply
to a question as to whether the closing   would   not be inconvenient for  the
fishermen, he replied  that  the fishermen  were    not   paid  off until    much
later in tlie year and thai if they reopened their establishments in August
they would not  lose any trade in the
meantime.
E. McKenzie, market clerk, contrasted the presenl conditions with tnose
thai prevailed years ago and informed
those present that he was in full
sympathy with the holiday movement.
W. R. Gilley, shipowner, being called
upon for his views said thai in his
business it. might be Impossible to
close altogether, but he was in
thorough sympathy with tlie project.
David Gilchrist suggested that a list
.should be made and circulated among
iho   merchants   'in   r,he   city,   asking
them to close their establishment at
1 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, and
was confident thai ii  would be signed
by all Hi,.' merchants of tlie city.
W. E. Slncdair, tlie only represents
ritlve of lhe footwear retailers present,
also spoke in  favor of the innovation.
Several other tradesmen and clerks
present also spoke, all of them being
favorable to the closing of the stores
on  Wednesday, and it was finally decided  on  the  proposition  of Mr.  Gil-
schrist  that Mr. McGowan he appointed a coininitte of one to bring to the
natice of the merchants who were not
present at the meeting the decision arrived    at,  and at the same time request   them   to   sign   the   petition   in
favor of the Wednesday closing.    To
save  time  it  was  suggested  that the
merchants    present    should sign    the
agreement immediately after the meeting adjourned, which was accordingly
