Religious    Strife    Between
,   Creeds in India Requires
Military Intervention.
Calcutta, Jan. .'..The Hindus have
resumed their attacks on the Mosque
at Tltaghur because the Mohammedans had sacrilicci] cows. Tho Hindus
destroyed sacred furniture in the Mosque and partialL demolished the walls.
Inflamed Mohammediius gathered in
defence of the Mosque and were surrounded by a military cordon which
formed a barrier between the .Mohammedans and Hindoo Holers who assaulted the soldiers iu an effort to
como to close quarters with the Mohammedans. The troops fired upon
the zealots, killing and wound'ng several. Isolated ciiiliitts between Hindus and Mohnmiii'.Inns are taking
place throughout the disturbed district. The Mohammedans from the
more remote quarters are making their
way to Tltaghur to revenge the Hindus'  insults   to  theie    aith.

BETTER FIRE PROTECT!
NEEDED IN MANY PLACES
Access to Fire Escapes Is Difficult and Descent Dangerous
-No Water in Hall Standpipes   Clauses of the
Fire Prevention By-Law Are
Disregarded.
That the provisions made for the
fighting of lires and the safety of
people ill hotels, boarding houses and
business blocks In this city Is Inoufli-
cieut, if inn Inadequate, is the opinion
arrived at by a Dail> News nnu. who
has been looking into the matter during the jiast few days, and who has
discovered some startling facts in
consequence. The seriousness of the
situation is such as to demand immediate attention on the part of the authorities.
The provisions of tbe Fire Preven-
sible panic, the location of the lire-
escape would be a difficult matter In a
majority of tbe buildings, as there
are no lights or sign., to point tbe
way to safety.
Some of the escapes, Buch as the
one on the Dominion Trust building,
are so built that it would be easy for
anyone to descend, but in many other
cases th.- iron ladders affixed to the
outside walls would call for tho exertion of more acrobatic agility than
the average man possesses, while for
women and children ihe escapes are
extremely dangerous, if not    actually

LETTER WRITING   ETIQUETTE
A letter intended by  the writer for
publication was received by the News
yesterday. For private reasons, the
sender prefers signing .ti nom-de-
plume, a course to which no objection
i.i taken as a rule, 'but In this particular instance exception is made. The
communication is aimed directly at an
individual and is to some extent a reflection upon his ability. We take
the definite stand that when a letter
to the press is personal in its meaning and application, it should he aign-
ei by the writer, as only by the enforcement of this rule are personalities
eliminated.
While on the question of newspaper
correspondence    etiquette,    we    may
point out   thai  letter.-    reflecting   on
stories or articles which have appeared iu a newspaper should be sent to
that particular newspaper, and not to
its  rivals.   Attention to this is called

CUSTOMS OFFICIALS.
cf England Called ��hr Meal
Obliging and Helpful.
There Is no country where the master of lauding from 'American"passenger ships is so easy and so expeditiously done ns England, says the Travel
Magazine. Of course it is a free trade
country, the freest lu the whole world.
There are duties levied on tobacco and
spirits, but travelers are allowed a
linlf pound of tobacco In any shape and
a half pint of spirits, which also includes perfume. Sugar is dutiable,
whether in grain, sweets or In jam, but
a small quantity is freely passed. In
all cases, however, these goods must be
the actual property of tbe passenger
and 1h> for his use and control. Cocoa,
coffee and tea aro also dutiable, as are
reprints of English books. Outside of
these things, as ncmed, passengers can
bring Ini .anything'��� njOtorg, cycles,
horses, but not dogs, which animals a
not to eiceed six months' quarantine
awaits. Keep dogs on the American
aide. The customs ofllelsrs are life appointees���under the civil service���and
���will tie found most obliging and help-
fnl. In fact, they are a model to the
customs world.   Tell the truth at  all
.times to these officials and you will be
all right.   They are marvelously keen
fen spotting the supposedly smart liar.

WHISKERS.
- Once upon a time the cleat
!shnven man used to lie told that h��
looked like a groom. To tell him so
!at tho present day would be, by ini-
Jplication. io insult Mr. Chamberlain,
Winston Churchill nnd the bishop
of London. Very similar, though in
the opposite direction, has been tho
evolution of public opinion with re-
?ard to whisker?. At the time of
he Crimean war they were the
badge of the military caste and were
'the. center of sentiment accordingly,
One remember* a song, once popular, of which the refrain was, "Thi
captain with his whiskers oast a ply
glance nt me. To quote it is Ijkg
nailing up the ghost of a forgotten
vast. It reminds ur no less of the
modesty of the early Victorian
maiden than of the lady killing propensities of the early Victorian warrior. Whiskers were one of the ladj
killer's weapons in those days, and
It would seem from Ihe sighs of oui
contemporary that when the hirsutf,
circle i? completed they may bi
mr.tle tn serve that purpose ye*

Liner in Vancouver Paper
Casts Reflection on Local
Business Firms.
Some smart Aleck "bo has a better
sense of humor than of the fitness; of
things,   has  inserted  in  a   Vancouver
|newspaper   a      liner     advertisement
which   reads  as   follows:
| "Wanted���Badly, smart drygoods
store in New Westminster,"
Exactly what is meant iby a "smart"
drygoods store is left to the Imagination of the troubled reader, who
must needs solve the problem for
himself, as old Noah Webster, \yno
in his day made quite a reputation
.is a lexicologist, will not afford any
assistance, Apart from the ambiguity
of the sentence, however, the advertisement is calculated to arouse interest.
