Chicago, Feb. 26.���Trainmen, '.-..-
gineers, firemen, conductors, switchmen and other employees of practically all the large railroads of t.ie
country are preparing to join forces
in contesting the proposed reduction
in wages. A strike will he the last
resort of the employees, but their
leaders declare thai If a Btrike is necessary to prevent the lowering of
wages, they stand ready to tie up
every road In the country.
Despite the threatened strike the
executives of the railroads are going
along with their arrangements for a
general wage reduction. The railroad
officials declare that a cut in wages is
absolutely, necessary, in view of the decreased earnings of the roads. A conference representing the I!) roads west
of Chicago wiil be held in St. Paul
early next month to decide upon the
wage  reduction.    The   Gould   system
has already notified its employees to "**T ANTH,) IM IM1'S

railway is preparing for a reduction
and slmlllar action will be taken soon,
it is expected by the Louisville anrl

the South, It is believed the locomotive engineers will Le the chief sufferers by the reduction, though no
branch of the service will le spared.

DIRECTORS.
entering  Chicago,  in  a  recent  interview   said:
"I have great confidence in the good
sense of railroad employees and da
not believe they will Berlously resist
tne contemplated wage reduction. All
the employees need do is lo scan the
current reports of earnings to understand the situation. In case an attempt is mala to hold up the abnormally high pric. of labor when the earnings of railroads and industrial corporations do not warrant it, the alternative will be to shut down. In
the immediate future employers will
have more to say about the scale of
wages than for several years, provided the present business recession
obtains as now."
The other side of the controversy
Is set forth by a leader of one of the
big railroad brotherhoods, who says:
"We do not believe ail this talk
about depression of business. We believe that it is not so had as it is reported to be. The officials of the
railroads, in my opinion, are taking
advantage of the situation and are cutting salaries. The wages of train
nandn and of conductors have not been
advanced in years, whi:-,- the living
conditions have been greatly increased. Owing to the high prices
they are compelled to pay tor the
necessaries of life the men are not
able to make ends meet now, and it '
will be simply impossible to get along
ir the railroads persist in their determination to make a gen' ral reduction."
During the next two weeks the officials and leaders ol the brotherhoods
of railroad employees will hoi,i confer', aces at various points throughout
>,.> country to settle upon the course
tto in- p-rstiod. Two month's ago a
general strike vas contemplated un-
knur n be roads ..greed to a general
'wag. Increase. But the business depression came on about the ��i}me
time and after several conferences it
was' agreed that the demands for an
advance would not be pushed for the
pr-sent Now that a cut In wages all
along the .ine is in sight the talk of
a general strike ls again renewed.

Uentlemeu,���1 beg to inform you
that it is vary necessary that all backyards and premises should b_ properly
cleaned ami made sanitary. From the
reports I have had from the Sanitary
Inspector, and from what I have witnessed with my own eyes, th-jre are
numerous places along the different
streets that have got to be cleaned up
within a vecy short space of time.
I might particularly mention that
tlie lower part of Carnarvon street, between Eighth and. Tenth, streets, an.l
also Alexander and. Blackie streets are
iu a most unsanitary condition, as well,
as many back-yards in the principal
part of the city behind the business
apartment*. It Is. quite unnecessary
for me to meatiou any names, but all
you have ta do Is look in your own
yard- ami you cam tell at a glance
whether thej an; sanitary or not. Till*
work must, be done before the 15th of
.March, 1908, or I shall be obliged to
take the necessary steps to see that
t'ae work Is done satisfactory to the
Sanitary Inspector.
I trust that this aotlce will be accepted wlthoul .-toy prejudice, as any
broad-minded cltiz__. know. that, tho
population of the city has been
steadily increasing in the last two or
three years, and if we want this rood
success to continue, we want to i low

to  get free  land.    Tlie  conditions of
the country  did  not  warrant  paying
such a price, he declared.    The   law
j must have been broken In the case in
! point  to  enable one  man   to  control
j 52,000  acres  hi  the  Nechaclio   valley
or anywhere else in the province.   It
was contrary to the spirit of the land
laws.    During the last two years   the
[ government    had    alienated    471,198
fuios  by sale, and ln 1908, pre-emption  amounted  to   198,000  acres.    Al-
! most the whole of the larger amount
I had been granted to speculators, or at
j an}   rate,  quite    two-thirds.     It  was
i necessary to settle the country as   a
j whole and make roads, etc., to reach
j t'ne land.   He advocated the policy of
i withdrawal  of all   agricultural   lands
! from  sale and   setting    apart    large
areas by way of free grants to settlers.
Atter touching on the question    of
' fisheries and showing what had been
'done by the Dominion-government to
( protect them, he advocated the supplying of free text books to the public
schools  as  in   Manitoba  and scouted
the idea cf infection from this source.
He  desired  the remission of    pro-
! perty tax municipalities,  the present
' revenue available    being    insufficient
for tiieir needs, legislation continually
casting on them new duties and    responsibilities.   Real estate was assessed  at a  low  rate  but  the    merchant
went free.   It should be to the municipality and not to the individual as
proposed by the government for next
year.
The debate on the budget occupied
most of the two sessions, members
taking advantage Of the opportunity
to set forth the needs of their districts or their criticisms Of the government's past policy with respect to
them. Tbe following amendment to
the motion that "the speaker do now
leave the chair," moved by -Mr. Oliver,
was lost on a straight party vote:
���'ihis House regrets that the gov-
r rnment has not taken effective measures to secure the settlement of our
agricultural lands, so as to .stop the
huge drain upon our resources, caused
by the Importation of over four million dollars' worth of agricultural produce annually, and that the government has, on the contrary, allowed
1: i-ge areas of our agricultural lands
to pass into the hands of speculators,
who hold the same tor Incre Bed
prices, ami thus prevent the production within the province of the food-
stuiis now imported."-

poisoned money. Mr. Hopkirk was
manager of -Mills" hotel, No. 2, and
from the money which he handled he
contracted malignant scarletlna, a disease w'nich is usually fatal. He was
���cashier of the hotel, in which cheap
lodgings are given to the poor, and in
that capacity handled hundreds of
dirty germ-laden bills coming from
the slums of the city. The physicians
say there is no doubt that the disease
was communicated through these bills.

PUBLICITY  FOR VICTORIA.
The Victoria Development and
Tourist Association have just published another edition of their booklet,
"An Outpost of Empire," making the
sixty-fifth thousand issued by this progressive society.
The publication is exhaustive in its
effort, to place before the outside public not only the beauties of Victoria,
but also Victoria as a port and a city
of homes.
If is well known that New Westminster possesses all the advantages Victoria boasts of, and perhaps a little
more, not. forgetting a fresh water
harbor, and it is distinctly up to the
City Council to support the request.
tor a grant, made on behalf of the
citizens, at a public meeting for the
purpose of forming a bureau of information, one of the duties of which,
would be to mail broadcast, publications Betting forth the advantages of
the Royal City.
Not only this, bul with an up-to-date
office established here, it is a certain
fact, that no misleading statements
anout the Fraser river as a highway
would appear in the Vancouver or any
other outside journals.
Labor Unions Issue Boycott.
Bellingham, Feb. 26.���A boycott has
been declared by the labor unions of
the city on the Bellingham Bay Furniture company, owing to the open shop
policy recently put into effect by the
concern on its new flatlron building
now under construction. A few day.
ago the furniture concern discharged
all the union carpenters and other
men working on the building. Men
who have no union affiliations were
then hired. This action precipitated
the row.
Japanese Money Tightening.
Berlin, Feb. 25.���The tightening of
financial conditions in Japan is regarded by banks here as likely to result in the transfer from London to
Tokyo of a large portion of Japanese
balances and somewhat to disturb
European money markets. Japan's
balances in London are estimated at
between $60,000,000 and $75,000,0000.
At the Japanese embassy here the
news of panicky conditions at Asaki,
Kyoto and Kobe is discredited, but
private advices to German firms trading in the far east confirm the news
of the scarcity of money.
WHISKY CURSE OF STANFORD.
Stanford University, Feb. 26.���Authorities of Stanford university face a
crisis in dealing with the problem of
drunkenness among the studeuts.
President Jordan admits the seriousness of the situation in these diplomatic words:
"It seems that of late there has been
an increase in drunkenness. The academy council in formal resolutions de.
cants on the necessity of freeing the
university from the burden and disgrace of student drunkenness."
The doctrine of establishing an inn
or canteen under control of the authorities as a sort of qualified and obtainable reform is gaining headway,
President Jordan says the present condition must he remedied first. After
that he thinks the subject of an inn
could be discussed with propriety.
Residents of the campus, driven to
exasperation by the continued annoyance resulting from the uncurbed
course of students who have been im-
fclbing too freely, have organized a
civic federation or league for their
own protection against disorder.

FELINE FISHERS.
Vol   Afraid
All  Coin   A|-|>urenily   Are
uf the Water.
Judging from my experience, cats,
when living near water, are generally
fond of fishing. I have personally
known three feliue Ushers. One was a
more acquaintance and used to fish in
n trout stream. The other two lived
with us and during the summer
months used to fish in the lake nearly
every evening. They would crouch on
tlie shore and suddenly jump into an
advancing wavelet, very frequently
bringing out a small fish. When they
hud kittens. I have sometimes seen
them bring up to the house three flsb
in the space of an hour.
I know of a cat, whose home was in
Westmorland, close to a stream, that
was a regular and accomplished fisher.
She was a half Persian. Her daughter belongs to friends of mine, and I
have myself seen this latter watching
the goldfish in the children's aquarium,
which at that time was open at the
top nnd on a broad window seat. Puss
put in one paw and stirred the water
violently, then sat dowu to watch with
apparent satisfaction the terror of the
fish, which she could not on that occa-!
sion reach. Once the family found she j
had caught one and killed a second, so i
the aquarium was afterward
covered by wire or net. One of
cat's kittens belonged to me and wus
for her short life of under a year very
dependent on human companionship.
She came up to my bedroom frequently
the first thing In the morning aud always took great Interest In the wash-
hand basin, from which she would lish
out the sponge or snap, and liked to
have her paw in the water. She had
to be kept out of thr' bathroom, as
more than once she deliberately jumped Into the bath when it had in it n
depth af two or three Inches of water.
If this daughter and granddaughter of
the original fisher had lived mar water, I think tho fishing instinct would j
have developed, as the  threi
A Vile lVrf.rmaav*.
On the occasion of his brother1* t*3***
lit Edwin Booth wus standing behind
the scenes when a character actor wh��
had been giving imitations of noted
actors was about to respond to an encore.
"Whom do y..��� imitate next'?" in
quired liootb
"Well," was the reply, "I was golny
to represent you in Hamlet's soliloquy,
but if you look on I'm afraid I shall
make a mess of it."
"Suppose I imitate myself?" remarked the tragedian, and. hastily putting
on tbe other actor's wig and buttoning
j up his coat, be went on and delivered
j the well known lines,
Next morning thr' newspapers stated
I that the Imitations ruined the perform- j

Precautions   Taken   to   Keep   th��
Bag From Destruction.
It may interest thu reader to hear
aonielliing nbout the construction of a
big modern balloon and Its equipments.
It is made of what is known as balloon cloth, which sometime, is of silk
nml is Bowed in small sections of about
a yard .-..jtiare. so that If one of the sections should burst thr' whole balloon
would not collapse and destroy the
���aeronaut.
At the top of the bag Ls the valve to
let the gas out when one wishes to descend. A rope for opening It runs from
this valvrs through the center of the
balloon to tbe operator in the basket
Tho balloon is filled through thu neck,
ami this is left always open, so thfit
Wben tlie gas expands from the heat of

Tlie first of November is the official

for the sad race of flat dwellers. Then
all the smaller shows which cannot

squares go into winter quarters.
Where? I found a city of them out In
the waste lands by the great gate of
Montrouge. In an empty lot were
scores of caravans drawn up behind
the wooden palisades, ranged so as to
form veritable streets, named after
this showman or that. Logs, chickens,
rabbits, children, swarmed everywhere.
Corkscrews of smoke rose from the
chimneys of the wagons. Candy rags
were drying on linos. Will you look in
one of the vans? It has two rooms. In
one are the beds. The other is for eating. On all sides tlur walls are lined

standard of art criticism. What is
lauded today is discarded tomorrow,
and even connoisseurs disagree be-
wilderingly; but. glancing buck over
tlie ages, it will be found that tbe discord has been caused by technical divergence nnd that in every land and
among all peoples the truly beautiful
has been generally recognized and correctly esteemed. No oue questions to-
dny the beauty of tbe Greek temple or
the charm of the Babylonian pottery.
It does not require trained eyes to recognize the merit of an oriental flower

Whistler's nocturnes. The fundamentals In eacli instance nre tbe same���

led oftthnes up the ascent of art, ami
there is much discussion concerning
the byways, but once on the height nil
dissension ends, and we no longer need

Two   thousand   individual   wax   fig-
1 ures have  been seen In    the   Musee

Before a large auctence in St. Pat-

local option.    Nor did she treat the
matter from  the usual  standpoint of
temperance lecturers, condemning the
users of the liquors without regard tor
the causes which prompted that use;
.Miss Murcutt aimed her attack directly at the heads of affairs who made
the drink traffic possible, even charging, by innuendo, that thr' powers that
be not only suffered the traffic to continue  but assisted   it   for  the purpose
of the subjection of the masses,   She
traced the origin of ihe liquor traffic
in   Kii-'and  to this cause.    "The fact
remains," she said, "that the doctrine
of the  corrupting  tendency    of    tbe

ruling   powers   of   England   long  ago

these licenses were lavishly dispensed
and the people became corrupted In
their morals and parallzed in their industry, and, the ale houses, the very
s'ock of thieves ami vagabonds, were
supported by gentlemen for the-worst

Miss Murcutt denounced the inae-
tiion of the church and the lack of
enthusiasm In the temperance societies, too many were confusing
"Churehanity with Christianity" and
even the saloon keepers themselves
went to church each Sunday and took
the sacrament. The speaker spoke of
the work that had been done in the
interests of the cause in Scotland,
where cities that had been unfit for
decent people to reside in had become the most moral in that country,
by the efforts of societies that were
scoffed at when they started.
The lecturer announced that a petition was being prepared to the government, which every householder in the
province would be asked to sign, a
petition for local option. It would ask
for legislation that would enable each
municipality to say whether it wanted
the saloons, whether it wanted more
saloons or less, and the majority of
votes would rule in every case. The
speaker concluded with an eloquent
appeal for the signatures of the people
to the petition.
The meeting was presided over by
Rev. W. H. Barraclough. and during
the evening Mr. Creighton sang
