Winnipeg, .March !).���The Conservatives threw up the sponge completely
at thr1 assize court last week by making application for nolle prosequi in
the celebrated cases brought by
them against R- E. A. Leech and other
Liberals In connection with the Dominion general elections in Manitoba.
Their action is the most abject confession nf having made totally unwarranted charges of wrong-doing
against Mr. Leech and three returning
officers; charges for which they had
not a tittle of evidence and the withdrawal of which is positive proof that
they had no evidence.
The incident came abc...; In the following manner: When Chief Justice
Howell had concluded his address to
the granil jury at the assizes he asked
if there were any cases ready to te
heard. B. L. Howell, solicitor for the
accused in the prosecution agaTnst L.
Duggan, J. C. Jickling and A. Ayotte,
returning officers for Selkirk, Macdonald and Provencher respectively in
the last federal election, and R. E. A.
Leech, called the attention of the
court to these cases. Thereupon Deputy Attorney-General Patterson, acting for the attorney-general of Manitoba stated to the court that a stay
of proceedings had been granted and
all the indictments dropped.
This marks the close of the famous
and much advertised "thin red line"
cases over which the Conservatives
throughout Canafla have attempted
to make party capital for three year?

Boston Men Acquire Conces- Lack of Money Handicaps

Dredge at Cost of $100,000 j    Elected at Annual Meeting
Never before in the history of New Westminster has such a startling
report been brought down by an alderm;.n a* the one presented to the council yesterday evening by Aid- E. J. Fader, who had been instructed to tlelve
into the moral conditions of the city and make suggestions for the suppression of vice and immorality.
As chairman of the police committee and member of the board of police
commissioners, Aid. Fadfcr has been Jin a position to glean more information concerning the social evil than his confreres, and the facts which he
embodied in his report  were startliffg  and sensational in the extreme.
Two ways of dealing with the ev.l are recommended by the alderman.
One Is the increasing of the police force by engaging forty plain clothes
men to watch the fifty suspected immoral women scattered throughout
the city and the providing of a fund to defend the damage suits which will
be brought against the city if the prosecution fails to establish a case. The
cost of this scheme is $32,000. The alternative is the establishing of a restricted district.
Aid. Henley, seconded by Aid. Fader, moved the adoption of the report.
For the space of a minute, during which the facial expressions of the solons
was a study, no one- spoke, then Aid. Garrett expressed his personal opinion
that this was a most extravagant report, nor could he see why the police
could not deal with one house at a time instead of attempting to deai with
all at once. Like the Israelites of old who wandered for forty years in tha
wilderness and then failed to enter the promised land, because they feared
to strike at the warlike inhabitants in the first place, so would the city wander forty years in the wilderness before it obtained a clean city unless
they went about in a fearless manner. To his mind there was something
strange about the proposal.
Aid. Johnston thought that the report was altogether too much for the
council to properly digest at one sitting and suggested that the report lie
on the table for a week- This was put in the form of an amendment by
Aldermen Garrett and Shiles and carried. Aldermen Fader and Jardine
voting contra, the seconder remarking that although he had a goo^deal of
experience In council matters, this was one of the most remarkable reports
in his experience. The report follows:
Vonr Worship:
With reference to the petitions brought before the council last Monday
evening referring to the restricted dis|rict, I beg to report that I have again
investigated the matter, and have made particular enquiry from the owners
of the properly on which the building had started work, and I am positively
Informed by those people that they have no intention of renting those
houses for immoral purposes.
On further investigation I am informed by the chief of police that
there are about fifty immoral women scattered over the city, some living
within a block from my own door in two or three different directions; and
that he has endeavored to find evidences against those people, but with the
force of police that we have now, it is utterly impossible to deal successfully with the situation. That there are even more women now in the city
than when the women were restricted on McNeely street. The chief also
reports to me that while the women referred to were ln one locality, it was
inexpensive to the city to guard those places, and keep order, and now that
they are scattered all over the city it is Impossible to cope with the situation without increasing the police force. So after carfully considering the
situation, I have concluded that there is only one of two things to~do. We
must either allow the women to locate in one locality, or in other words, ,a
restricted district that can be easily guarded without any extra expense, to
Ihe city, or we must increase the police force and drive them entirely out
of the city, and after receiving the petitions from over 250 petitioners requesting the city to stop the erecting of immoral houses in a restricted district, I would recommend the latter course the proper thing to do.
I have consulted with the chief of police, and we have estimated the
number of special police that it will require to rid the city of those women,
and we find that it will take from 40 to 50 extra special police to watch the
houses now occupied by those women and secure evidence against them.
This will cost the city about $3750 a month. We further estimate that it
will take at least six months to rid the city of the undesirable class referred to. This would mean a total of about $22,500 for extra police force
wages, and I wish to add $10,000 extra for law suits and damages which
might be brought against the city by the. different cases that might be
brought up, ns this is a very delicate matter to undertake, and there is no
telling what the cost of damages might be. This would make a complete
total of about $32,500. Of course, should we be successful In completing
our task within the six months (he money would not he lost at all events.
This estimate amounting to the extra udinary sum of $32,500 for this purpose is more than we would care to take upon our own shoulders and I
therefore recommend the council place it before the ratepayers of the city.
I further recommend that this amount of money be asked for by the city at
the next voting by the Taxpayers In the next by-law. so that the taxpayer
may be able to either vote for It or turn it down- If the taxpayers of the
city turn It down and do not vote the necessary money required for ridding
the city of this undesirable class, I then recommend that the women be allowed to remain in a restricted district, so that they may be safeguarded
by the police in the most economical manner.

ESPERANTISTS TO HAVE
INDEPENDENT STATE
WHISKY JUGS TO FORM
MONUMENT OF HERMIT
Neutral Strip of Territory to
Be Site of Proposed Model
Republic-No Taxes.

Paris,March S���If the scheme which
has just been worked out by an en-
tl ji-aiastic body of French, German
r.r.d Belgian Esperantists can be realizes, the next jaaT ier two will Bee
the birth of an independent Esperanto
State in Europe. It is proposed to
secure lhe good will and assent to
the establishment of the new state of
the Governments of France, Germany,
Belgium and Holland. This site will
be on a neutral strip of terlority which
lies on the frontier between Germany,
Belgium and Holland, some five miles
from Aix-la-Chapelle. This territory
is known as Moresnet, is situated iu a
pleasant valley, possesses a small casino, has a natural population, half-
German and half-Belgian, of 3,000 inhabitants, and is traversed by electric
cars from Aix-la-Chapell and from the
Belgian side of the frontier. The organizer and promoter of tlie new
scheme is the well known French Es-
perantist.   Professor  Roy.
An Esperanto college is to be founded, and Esperanto is to be the official
language of the place. Xo taxes would
be  levied,  and  the  expenses  of  the
Stale, which would be run in an economical manner, would be borne by the
subscriptions of  Esperantists  all the
world over.   The scheme includes an
Esperanto   theatre,   a   daily    official
"Esperanto Gazette,"  and    a sort ofl
Esperantist parliament,    which    will |
meet   periodically  to  discuss   the af-
fairs of the little State., The head ofl
the state, republican in constitution,

has brought us the prosperity of today or does it want the "rubber"

The Victoria and Sydney railway
has concluded arrangements with
Sloan Bros., of Seattle, for the building of a car ferry barge of the style
of the C. P. R. ferry barges. The car
ferry, which will accommodate nine
loaded cars, will be operated between
Sidney and Mud Bay, on the east sidy
of Boundary bay, not far from Point
Roberts, and close to the International
boundary. The ferry Service, Iby way
of the Victoria & Sydney road is to
road system, the Victoria, Vancouver
& Eastern, and Victoria, Westminster
& Yukon railroads.
The ferry barge to be built by the
Sloan Bros., will be 172 feet long, 38
feet beam and 10 feet deep. No arrangements have yet been made for a
tug to tow the craft, but it is probable
that negotiations will be entered into
shortly for the building of a steel tug
for the work. The ibarge is to be
completed within four months. It, will
be ready for service early in July and
a tug will be secured before that
time. .

SIR HIBBERT'S EFFORT.
night the mixed gathering of Con- j
servatives and Liberals which greeted '
Sir Charles Hlbbert Tupper in St.
George's Hall gave'the learned knight)
a studious hearing, though there was
absent that old time fire and enthusi-'
astic presentation of his subject. '
This was mainly accounted for by
the fact that he knew his audience
knew that he was a member of the1
Government that went down to defeat
under the landslide of 1896. Then
again he lacked frankness in dealing
with tbe defeat of the Robinson Government in New Brunswick, the last
of thr- coalition Governments in Canada thus passing away after such
coalition existence for nearly thirty
years, being; during this long period
made up of prominent Conservatives
and Liberals.
Sir hibbort failed tu tell his hearers >
that in the case of Gloucester for example the Robinson Government nominated three Conservatives, yet three
Liberals were elected by the Opposl*
tlon. And it w;is the same in several I
constituencies, the fight being betw n n
the "ins and outs" resulting in a
Liberal-Conservative Governmenl being replaced by u Conservative majority from whom a Conservative Ministry will be chosen and party Government becomes a fact in all the Provinces ol the Dominion.
But we fail to see any groat import
in this Provincial victory, if such it be,
iu  New   Brunswick.    Here   in   British
Columbia at the last Federal general
election we bad a Conservative Government, who threw an their forces
into the light to Bupport Conservative
candidates, with the well known result that a solid seven Liberals were
returned to represent this Provliue in
the Dominion Parliament, and History
will repeal Itself here as well as In tlie
other Provinces ami the Liberal Gov*
< rnmenl al Ottawa wiil be sustained,
Sir Hlbbert spoke of Colchester, N.
S., but lie did nol even faintly whisper
aboul thr' other constituencies won
over by the Liberals In the byi ���elections. True Sir Hlbberl did not dare
to become prophetic, ec-uaa even hi��
"�����. case la extra :.���;.- problematical.

for sine, done in the hopr' of healing j
the breach In their ranks. These
kaleidoscopic changes have been made
before and in one of these Sir Hlbbert
may appear on the canvas for a Ibrlef
period. '
We regret that such an able man as
"Sir   Hlbbert  mentioned  the  R.  E, A. j
Leech case when he must have known
his party had   withdrawn  Its ground-!

warranted   in   making   against   Mr.

PROSPECTUS.
This company is formed for the purpose of supplying the City of Vancouver with absolutelj clean and
pure milk of the highest quality, free from drugs and deleterious germs. The need of such a milk supply is
so well known that there is no need to dilate on this question, the plans of the Company having the
earnest support of the Medical Society, the Provincial and City Health Officers, and every doctor in the
City.
An option has been secured at a very favorable price on the well known Cruickshank Farm at Matsqui
close to the C. P. R., and on the route of the Chilliwack tram line. This property comprises 010 acres, of
which 400 acres are in a high state of cultivation, and the balance is rich pasture. It is proposed to erect
thoroughly modern barns with cement floors throughout, well ventilated and lighted, and a modern Ice .ind
bottling plant, shipping by special refrigerator car to Vancouver every day.
The price to be given for the farm is $75,000, or about $117 per acre, a very low figure considering
the quality of the land, the improvements and the situation. It would be hard to find a farm better
adapted for the purpose of a large modern dairy. The terms of purchase are $25,000 cash, and the balance in fully-paid shares of the Company.
From the sum of $100,000 to be realized from the sale of 10,000 shares now offered, there will remain
$75,000 after paying the cash portion of the price rif the farm property, it is believed that this amount
will be sufficient for the erection of the necessary buildings and equipment and the purchase of about 500
cows, especially selected after careful examination.
THE NEED OF A PURE MILK SUPPLY.
The CUy has no authority at the present time to inspect any dairies outside the City.   The Com any
proposes to give it this authority, so far as its own lams and premises are concerned, and will welcome
such inspection at all times,   it also proposes to ask the Medical Association to appoint a committee ol in
spection.
The City records of 1907 show MS deaths of babies under twelve months' old, and medical men hav.
stated their opinion that at least 90 per cent., or say 1.3, of these deaths are directly traceable to milk,
either drugged or contaminated at time of consumption. It Is needless to say that 148 does not by any
means cover the total number of deaths of children, as it is the number of those under twelve months ot
age only.
Out of thirty samples of milk collected in Vancouver during 1907 and analyzed by the Dominion (;�����-
ernment authorities, only two samples reach .'_% per cent., which is the average Canadian percentage ol
butter fat), and fourteen of them were officially described as eit'm r watered or skimmed, and were below
3 per cent, which is the Vancouver City standard.
THE PRE8ENT DIFFICULTIES.
The average farmer and milk vendor Is perhaps unaware of the need of the most scrupulous cleanliness
in every detail in the handling and delivery of milk, ami lacks the necessary capital for the erection of
cement floored barns, properly lighted and ventilated, the equipment of refrigerating and bottling machinery, and the employment of men technically trained In what is now recognized as a business requiring
scientific care and management.
Without a supply of natural Ice, or the means of artificial refrigeration, milk cannot be kept during the
period of twenty-four to forty-eight hours which elapses between milking and delivery, without the aid of
powerful preservatives, such as formaldehyde, etc. This drug prevents milk turning sour, even If exposed
to the sun, but this and other preservatives are very dangerous.
���     WHAT THE HYGIENIC  MILK COMPANY WILL DO.
This Company will supply milk only of the highest standard, both as to quality and purity.   It ile... not
projiose to pasteurize milk, which attest Is a makeshift.
It should be clearly understood that pasteurized milk is not pure milk; it is only impure milk which
has been renovated, and the Impurities to a greater or less extent removed.
The very fact that milk needs pasteurizing Is In Itself a suspicious circumstance. This Company never
Intends having milk on any of its premises In need of renovation, as it will keep only healthy cows, which
will be under constant veterinary supervision; the milk, when produced, wiil be pure and absolutely clean,
and will be kept in that condition until delivered to tho consumer.
Immediately after milking, the milk will lie aerated and cooled to a temperature of 3. degrees, pui In Beted bottles und delivered at the doors of customers exactly as it left the farm, and at the same temperature; this will prevent the need of drugs In summer to keep It sweet, and will also prevent the propagation of injurious bacteria in the milk, to which ls attributable the enormous infantile mortality In t-��
City and district.
MANAGEMENT.
Arrangements have been completed to secure the services of a well known dairy expert as general manager,    This gentleman has successfully operated one of the largest creameries in Cnnada. and has made"
Special study of all matters connected with the handling and feeding of cattle.
Paper estimates of profits are some times delusive, so the directors content themselves with pointing --'
the well known fuel thnt all the dairy farmers In the district have been for many years doing very well indeed, and the milk distributors have been doing even belter, one firm being credited with making a pro-'
of $100 per day all last summer.
it is well known that in no part of Canada can cow fe.-.i be produced cheaper than in the   a-**"
Fraser Valley, and as similar companies In the United Slates, which sell (heir milk at lower prlcei than
are current here, pay good dividends, there Is no reason why this Company should not. do the same. M
the use of milking machines and labor saving devices in handling the feed, manure, etc., etc., should <1|y'
the higher wages of this Const. *
IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The Company aim to keep 500 cows, but It wlll be obviously impossible to get this number In fl vear'
and while every effort wlll be made to deliver milk by June, before tne hot weather begins, it Is doubtful II
more than 100 cows can ibe obtained by then nnd the necessary barns and buildings completed. In lalbM
the milk, preference wlll naturally have to be given to the shareholders of the Company, and It l�� ,l"'
likely there will be any surplus for sale to the general public for nt least the first year of operation, and
���as there will be probably many people of small means In urgent need of this milk, the shares hove beflfl
put at a price, and on terms, within the reach of all.

Seattle.    .March    !).���That    the    remainder of the crew of the San Francisco codfish schooner John F. Miller
are safe is the word brought by   the
Seattle  schooner    Maid    of Orleans,
which arrived  from the  Behring s��a
station early yesterday morning. Just
before the Maid of Orleans left Swan
harbor,   I'nga  island, on January 16,
informal ion    was    received    at    that
1 place that the twenty-three survivors
i had been picked up by a schooner and
I were being cared for.    The name of
\ the rescuing vessel was not learned.
!    According to the    information    ob-
; tained by the Maid of    Orleans    the
! Miller had been on a lee    shore   for
i days before she went aground.     The
j gale was terrific and although all the
\ anchors were put out she could not
'. be kept from drifting.   When she did
: break up the mariners were not able
< to save anything.    All  they    escaped
wit'n was the clothing they wore, and
, the provisions they saved consisted of
i one sack of flour and one ham, hardly
a mouthful apiece divided among that
number of men.
Soaking wet from the icy sea and
exposed to the chill wind with no
shelter obtainable the ten men who
died were frozen to death wltTr their
companions helpless to aid rhem. The
men subsisted on shell fish for days
until rescued.

Fast  Pleasure  Boat.
Aid. Fader expects this summer to
; 'boast of being the possessor of the
falstest  pleasure  boat  on  the    coas;.
The Royal City,  one    time    torpedo
boat with a speed of 22 knots, is ad- j
mirably adapted for the purpose and j
when  the proposed    alterations    aro
made there will be no liner launch to
be found.    The intention  is  to    tear
out the heavy steam engines, develop-
! ing 500 horse power and in their place
instal three high speed IS horse power
gas  engines,  running   triple   screws.
The boat is of steel, built like a cigar
and with a cutwater like a knife .lade,
her whole design being speed.   Treed I
from the weight of the heavy engines:
��nd gearing necessary as a war ves-
I sei, she wlll ride much higher in the |
; water and  much less power will ba j
; required to obtain the same speed as
,   that  which sn"e  previously  possessed
��� with steam, so that Mr. Fader, after
| receiving expert  advice on  try sub-
l ject, is confident that with his new en-
1 gines, he will lie able to develop fe
i   speed  of twenty   knots.    The  Roy%!
City   Is   practically   unslnkable,   built
with seven water tight compartments,
! and will he equipped up with superbly
fitted cabins throughout.
