Vancouver District League
The largest crowd which ever witnessed an association football match
in Westminster gathered on Friday
afternoon at Moody square to see the
game between the Westminster team,
and the celebrated Thistles. Recognising that it would be one of the a.-st
matches in the Vancouver district league this season, both teams had doii"
their best to put representative men
in the field, and the Thistles had gone
to the exetnt of importing Mitchell
and Hewitt from Vancouver i-dand to
strengthen the team, Wilson played
half in place of McLean, and as was
anticipated th.- Rovers had to bring
Rico for Shawcross, whose leg made
him unlit The game was played in
a snow-storm, and on a hard ground,
which however had been carefu
rolled, and resit] ed in a win for the
visitors by two uouls to one after a
very stiff game.

This  City  After  Daring
Jewelry Theft in Vancouver
Just before seven o'clock Saturday
evening a man crashed a heavy piece
Of iron through the side window of
Lyttleton's jewelry store, on Cordova
street, Vancouver, and, seizing all the
valuables within reach, dashed up the
stairs Into the ball of a rooming place
above, through the building into the
rear, and down the lane. The whole
affair happened inside of live seconds.
An estimate of the value of the jewels
stolen, will probably reach about
$1000, as there were two trays of
rings of every description and a tray
of diamond brooches. Thy greater
pot tion of the jewelry was recovered^
yesterday morning, lying, w'"
rays, In the lane betweonfc
and Hastings streets. The tnief had
evidently, In running down the lane,
endeavored to thrust the rings iand
in ouches into his pockets, and the re-
~ult was 'hat most of them fell to the
ground, The actual loss, then, ha*
now been figured at a mere trifle,
The police of this city have been requested to look out for the daring
thief, as it is believed he headed this
way after his sensational robbery.

out   in   the     Vancouver    Milling

the meantime damage, approximately
estimated al over $50,000,   had    been
done, the mill, machinery    and    contents being entirely destroyed    The ���
evator was saved.
The cause aud origin of the fire remains  unknown.    The   buildings mil,

Vancouver, Jan. 3.���For more than
five hours on Saturday the Vancouver
Fire Brigade fought desperately to
.save the building at the corner of
Granville and Dunsmuir streets, which
is occupied by the D. A. Smith Furniture company, and it was only by
their heroic efforts that they managed
to confine the fire to the basement
and the first floor. Nobody seems to
know how the fire started, but it is
presumed thai it was caused by spon-
taneous combustion or a couple of
electric wires crossing and the sparks
therefrom setting the excelsios and
burlap which covered the furniture
ablaze, No definite statement could be
obtained as to the amount of damage
done to the building and stock, but
: is conceded to have been in the vicinity of SlOu.OOO, which is appreciably
covered  by  Insurance.
Firemen   Injured.
Dense volumes of smoke poured
out of the building on every ide, and
several of the men who were working
in the basement had very narrow escapes from asphyxiation. Three of

Crossing over, the Westminster .hoys
had much the best of the early exchanges, and gained a couple of cor-
ners, neither of which however were
made much use of. owing to the manner in which the Vancouver men
bunched the goal. In a melee the ball
hit. the left upright of the Thistles'
goal and rebounded back. Other corners produced nothing, and the Scotsmen took up the attack, scoring again
from Mitchell before they had been
down many minutes. Saul got laid
out, and then In the last few minutes
Westminster scored, from a shot by
Bruce, and though making heroic efforts to equalize the Thistles left the
field victors by two goals to one.
For the home team Hayes was the

from a bad kick, .but was steady and
reliable every time. Watson acquitted

I......I- With   11..-*,
The pt-culiar properties of an electric
current often lead one tc fancy that
It may perchance be endowed with the
spirit of Intelligence, so mysterious are
Its Inner workings.
A most curious net of electricity 1*
the adoption of lifting magnets In ma-
rhlae shop and mill practice. An electro magnet In its simplest form consists of a piece of soft lion wound witb
a large number of turns of Insulated
copper wire. When 1111 electric current
passes through tbe windings of wire
the electric forces are converted luto
maguetlo forces and tbe coll of wir*
and core of soft Iron assume all the
characteristics of a common steel magnet
Tbe operation of lifting mngnctR Is
ijuito simple. The magnet is attached
to the crane hook, and the ends of tbe
wire forming the eoll are connected
directly with the dynamo. The crane
Is then swung so that the magnet la
suspended directly 07er the metal to
be removed. The magnet is then low
ered until it comes In contact with the
object, the current is turned on. tbo
hoist is raised and the mnss of metal
to be moved clings to the magnet
When the load reaches tbe desired
point It may be dropped without first
lowering the magnet or it may be lowered, the current shut off and the material deposited gentry. The crane op
Orator ueeds UO help to load or unload, aud the work can be done In halt
the time with a saving of frutu thre��

SCHOOL ACCOMMODATIONS.
One of the most attractive features
of Vancouver is the excellent accommodation in public schols. New
schools are being built as the districts
around the city expand. A fine High
school and Normal School towers
above the, buildings in Fairview. All
these factors tell against Westminster
in the race for population. The present school buildings are inadequate,
and yet the bonded indebtedness of
the city 'should not be increased for
this purpose.
It   is not   the  fault  of the  trustees
that  better    accommodation    is    not
available.    They submitted   moderate
estimates which would go some little
way  towards  remedying the    present
condition of affairs.   The money could
not be spared, and the Westside school
is the one definite monument to their
industry.   This is fast Hearing completion, hut the   condition of   the   other
Schools  calls  for attention  this year.
The trustees had a warning .at Sapperton just before the school closed when
;i platform   collapsed,   Injuring   one
child.    It seems probable that the authorities will be compelled to   change
the present policy, and segregate the
schools,  and one on  the    reserve    on
Lulu Island is only a matter of time.
The repairs at  Sapperton are   merely
;i  palliative, not a remdey,    and   the
trustees are, we belie..-,    negotiating
for ;i site at the present time,
The occasion is not fa- distant when
the work of the High school cannot lie
carried on with five teachers, and the
slender accommodation is already very
much over-taxed. Nearly forty pupils
are entitled to ent ih" school this
term, and there is no place for them.
The trustees wished to secure the
west Tlpperary reserve for the new
sit,.., but where the money is to come
from is a difficult problem.
The character of the education given ;ii the High school is far from satisfactory to some of the parents,   who
think  thai   more attention  should  be
given    to   commercial    studies,    and
while this i-. no! the place to enter into the merit.- of    the    classical    vs.
practical education, there is no doubl
that (bos.- parents who pay taxes will

the city  it would help to a solution of
the problem, for there mlgbl be given
the training of   a   special    character
which many children require who arc
quite unable to take advantage of a
liberal education as the term is gener-
. illy understood.

I%* "Book rf Mormon" has been
grtrred to be a literary plagiarism, b*-
tor a free paraphrase of a romance
written by the Rev. Solomon Spalding
te 1816, tbe manuscript of which cam*
Into the possession of Joaepb. Smitfc
sad he, sitting behind a curtain, di��
tated It to Oliver Cowdcry, who, Beat
���A out of sijfht of the reader, wrote
ttw�� matter as It was given him. Smith
pretended that the book was discovered to him by revelation and dug op
from the side of a hill not far from
Palmyra, In the county of Ontario, N'.
T. The claim was made by Smith that
tbe writing on the elates was engraved
In "reformed Egyptian," which he was
unable to read until magic spectacles
which he called his Trim and Thuai
mlm, were given to him, enabling him
both to read aud, translate into English. Tbe spectacles and the metal
plates have disappeared, and tbe story
of the dictation makes tolerably clear
the manner in which the "Book at
Mormon" bad Its origin.
An Impresario's Advlc*.
Some years ago after tbe regular
Italian opera season had ended at ihe
Academy of Music, New York, that
building became a sort of trying on
arena for would be prima donnas and
tenors. Ooe day during the open and
ebtit Interim between the seasons Max
Maretzek met the tenor Adams and
Mine. Pappenhelm.
When the tenor said, "Congratulate
us. Max: we hnve just leased the academy for classic operas���no candy rot
for us," the impresario replied:
"1 wish you great success. But tell
me your propose,! repertory."
To this Adams responded, " 'Anti?
ow,' 'Orfeo,' 'Ipblgenla,' 'Sapho,' 'i>
reste,' etc."
Muretzek suavely said: "That is mag
flJIleeiit. But do me a favor as an old
and experienced friend. Give the
"Ti-orstore" once each week tn order tr
pay salaries."
This advice was not followed, and
very soon the academy was again for
rent--New York Tribune.

How   Four   Clever   Monkeys   Outwitt*c!
���  Hive of  Bees.
Four monkeys sat tinder a tree
tn an Indian forest. One monlrcy
���ra? seen to busy himself in smearing one of the others with red cltj
earth. When he hud succeeded in
entirely covering his companion the
three disappeared, leaving the othei
a mass of clay but for two small
holes, through which peered a pair
of cunning eyes. Then the bedaubed monkey was seen to climb
to the hollow of a tree whore there
was a beehive. The Wees buzzed
about the intruder, but all they
could do vi.-is to leave their sting in
his clay coat At latU they swarmed
sway in despair, and the clever
monkey helped himself to the honeycomb. And then the other monkeys came out of their hilling place
and proceeded to pick off the clay
covering from their brother. This
done they set to work at the honey
Comb and finished it to tho satin

Explanation Why
W. J. Kerr Was Summoned
El
The following paragraph appeared in The Columbian of Wednesday evening, December :30th:
"POLICE COURT CASES.���W. J. Kerr was summonsed to the police court this morning for
doing an insurance business without a license.   Magistrate Corbould has adjourned the case until
January 6th."
Had the reporter who caused this news item to appear, been more explicit in his representation to the readers of The Columbian, he would, no doubt, have added that Mr. Kerr was summoned
because he refused to pay a license covering an insurance company for which the license had already been provided for through another agent. In other words, the Corporation of the City ot
New Westminster are asking and expect to be paid a license for an insurance company represented
by Mr. Kerr, which company is also represented by another real estate agent in the city.
The company has paid the license giving them the privilege to do business in the City of New
Westminster through an agent or agents. Although the license was not paid at the instigation ot
Mr Ken' but on the part of the other insurance agent representing this same company, they being instructed to take care of this matter on behalf of the company this news item had inferred
to the Dublic that Mr. Kerr has committed a misdemeanour and violated the by-Jaw of the city by
not paying the license already provided for, and has done Mr. Kerr an injustice. He is summonsed only after refusing to pay what has been already paid and provided for.
