London, Dec. 29.���Frederick Green-
Wood, the journalist, who was tol-
'��Wed to the grave Saturday by many
devoted literary friends, gave the nation an Idea which was a very prolll-

chase of the Khedive's Suez shares,
Which have quadrupled In value. It
";i�� one of the best Investments
Which any government has ever
made.
All that Mr. Greenwood got out of

committee this afternoon decided to
vote the maximum li gal salary to the
future members of the board of control, which will be elected for the
flrsl time In February. They wlll
get $10,000 a yeai each, which is
much more than was previously expected, as there "as an idea that thi
council  would  only   vole  them  ?7I ,
in eider to vent then spleen at the
action of the citizens In voting for
the reformed system ol government.
A vote of J40.000 was put through, allowing |38,000 salary for the four
controllers tor eleven months and
*-'iiihi extra salary tor the mayor, increasing his pay trom S4U00 to J6000.
Tins however, leaves a doubtful position as the mayor is ex-offlcio chairman Of the board Of control. If h>'
onlv gels his salary as mayor the
chairman ol the board will be paid
J4000 a year less Ihan the ordinary

Ancient   History.
The Duke of Westminster and Earl
Chester reminded their audiences of
Lloyd-George's pro-Boer auiiude during the war, and said tha, a man of
his kind had no right to aspire to a
position as leader.
Sir Edward Grey al Salisbury got
sarcastic about Tory premises of the
reform of the lords. If i, meant that
the house was to be changed Into a
self-elected body of superior persons,
it was not reform at all and it was
worth nothing. Many other peers
made speeches. The Liberals ha ,e
made great preparations for the celebration of the centenary of Glad-,
stone's birthday.

NNE POINT Of m
RISK IN POLICE tOURT
Magistrate Fines Blacksmith
$25 for Subscribing Himself as Veterinary.
An interesting poini ol law .an up
ln the police court yesierday morning
when Wilbur Watson, a local blacksmith, was charged with practising as
a veterinary surgeon contrary to nn
act passed in 1907. Tin information
was laid by ihe li. c. Vi > Tinary Association, which had Stewart Living-
siiiiie. of Vancouver, acting for it,
while the defendant's case was looked aftei by Herbert IJ. Robertson of
the same place.
First Prosecution.
This was the firs; prosecution under the act in this city and some
question was raised as to the interpretation ol it. Section 17 oi the act,
undi i whicli the information was laid,
is to the effeet that any person wbo
wilfully pretends to be a veterinary
surgeon or that lie has in liis possession a diploma entitling him to be
ranked us such, or who use.,, tne name
veterinary surgeon or any abbreviation of the name, without being duly
registered with the li. C, Veterinary;
Association, shall be liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding $100 and not less than $25,
The evidence went to show that
Watson had doctored certain horses
and had sent in bills for his services
signed Wilbur Watson, V. S., when he
was not registered with the B. C. Veterinary Association. After listening
to the evidence Magistrate Corbould
Imposed the minimum fine of $2b as
he considered thai the intention of
the act had been violated.
The point raised by the defnee was
that in Section 17 of the act ii referred to veterinary surgeons as coining
within the above sectioi'. In Section
1(! there was nothing to show that
Watson i��ame within tbe scope of tiie
act.
Justified   By  Spirit of  Act.
The magistrate decided tliat the
contention of the prosecution was
justified by the spirit of the act, and
gave his judgment as above stated.
On tlie conclusion of tlie eas" Mr.
Robert son stated that he would appeal the decision.
Cheap Shaves for M.P.'s.
London, Dec. 29.���B, Slater, who

court for the variation of an order on
a judgment summons, said he was
hairdresser at the liouse of commons,
but ran the business at a loss.
"1 have a room for nothing," he
stated, "but there Is now a loss each
session. I have been here for thirteen years, and 1 did not sustain a
loss when the other government was
in, but the first thing the present government did when it came Into power
was to reduce my prices.
"They formerly paid sixpence for a
shave, but now they only pay threepence. I am walling for better
times."
Tlie order was varied.
DENVER BUSINESS MEN
DECLARE FOR WET TOWN

Restrictions, but Would  Increase
License Fees to $1500.

league, an organization made up of
owners of business blocks in the

policy concerning tlie sale of liquor In
Denver, lust night reported in favor
of a "wet" town. The recommendation carries with it a number of suggestions for restrictions upon the saloon. These include the establishment of a "wet zone," limiting the
number of licenses to 200 and increasing tbe fee from $600 to $1500 annually; suppression of wine rooms and
making territory within a certain radius of churches and schoolhouses,
even In the "wet zone," prohibition
ground.
The recommendations are made
with a view of warding oft the fight
to make Denver a "dry" town, which
result the committee believes would
ruin "our reputation as a convention
city and entertainers of tourists, who
visit us as guests."
The subject will come up before the
whol body in a week. There ls talk
of submitting this plan to the people
as an amendment to the city's charter.

Bacteria  of  Gastro Enteritis  Are

Deaths.
Re-
Paris, Dec. 29.���Medical circles and
the people of France have been startled by the announcement of a new
discovery b.v Professor Metchnikoff of
the Pasteur institute. He lias discovered a microbe called the proteus,
which, he says, kills at leasi 10,000
French children every year.
The microbe is that of gastro-enter-
is, and it. lives on the surface of apples and other fruits, salads and the
rind of cheese It is dangerous not
only to children but to grown up people also.
Professor Metchnikoff says, however, that the microbe can easily be
killed. Before preparing fruit for
children, people should be careful to
wash their bands with soap, and not
to dry theni, for soapy water is a beverage which the proteus abhors.
Salads, fruits and even cheese
should he plunged (ither in soapy water or in boiling water before they
are eaten.

made him understand American humor. The company which will bring
tliis play to Westminster is an exceptionally strong one, having been personally selected by the Beck Theatre

Rome. Dec. 29.���That the pope is
greatly incensed over the treatment
of the church in France was indicat-
o.l in an address which he recently
delivered to a number of French pilgrims. His holiness said that Catholicism was suffering persecution in
France under the pretext of the separation of church and state, as was
proved by the expulsion orders, trials
and condemnations which had been
Inflicted on Bishop Andrieu and other
bishops, besides the threatened laws
extending official protection to irreligious teachers and also the state
monopoly of schools.
The pontiff affirmed thai the war
against the church aimed at undermining the basis of Cliristianiti in
France and at making the state an
arbiter in religious matters. While
lighting the bishops who were faithful and loyal to the pontiff, the
French government did not allow the
bishops to enjoy the liberty which
was granted to all French citizens.
The bishops were insulted, tried a_nd
sentenced only because they were
courageously fulfilling their apostolic
duly. All this, instead of depressing
tbem. must animate Catholics to defend their religious rights. The pope,
in conclusion, urged the faithful to
keep united with the Episcopacy.
His holiness' words are confirmation, the Vatican believes, that the
struggle organized by the French government on the scholastic Question is
a decisive battle for the complete ef-
facement of Christianity in the upbringing of the children, which would
mean tbe suppression of Christianity
in France.
It is asserted that the Vatican is
ready to fight on two questions���the
denial of legal acknowledgmi nt to the
Catholic hierarchy, and the schools.

It  looks, however, as if Creat Bri-
j tain  will  not    be allowed to remain
long in possession of the largest air-
! ship, for from Germany comes the i_-
: formation that Albert Wetzel, tm en-
! gineer,   lias  completed  arrangements
i for the construction of a vessel which
j will, if his ambitious project  is realized, make  the  English airship  look
like a dwarf.
An  Enormous Craft.
The vessel Is to have a length of
9S4 feet, with a diameter of 6a 1-2
feet. The envelope is to be of majR-
nullum alloy, with a capacity of S,-
tiol.^lt! cubic feet. The builder intends to lit the airship with motors
of 1200 horsepower, with which ho
proposes to attain a speed of from
4b to 65 miles an hour.
According to the calculations the
vessel will possess a total lifting power of 103 1-4 tons. A vessel of such
dimensions should weigh at leasl. 76
tons, leaving a margin of 88 1-4 tons
for cargo. It is further stated that
it would be possible to carry 400 passengers on board.
Aerial Military Law.
Aerial military law was the subject
of a lecture delivered the other day
before the Impert-U Aoro club in .Berlin by rrof. A. Meyer, of Frankfort.
The amUonee included Admiral von
Holmann. Llent.-Oen. von Nieber .and
other military and naval authorities.
The speaker enumerated the ecases
in which history mentions the use of
balloons rn battlefields, even as f��r
back as the Rattle of Fleurus in 1794,
whore the Freuch defeated the Allies.
He rejected the doctrine that the air
is free, and also the theory that the
atmosphere up to a certain height
should be regarded as under the sovereignty of the land or sea beneath It.
All the air over a neutral country
in war time, he declared, should be
regarded as a neutral zone. He further laid It down as a principle of
1 law that hostile aeronauts have no
right to be treated by a special ��:ode
of honor. When captured in the act
of spying or scouting they are not to
be dealt with differently from spies or
scouts captured on land. 	
The lecturer concluded by oiprcw
lng the hope that aeriU flUUtary law
would not be put Into practice far *
long while yet, became war bl -mj*t
would be immeaaurably more
than on land or i

It is well that the better sense of
a majority of the moderat
the British Liberals has prevailed in
regard to the proposed reform of the
House of Lords. Their view is tliat
this body should be elective, though
a few of the older Liberals maintain
that its members should tie partly elective and partly hereditary. The idea
which the extreme radicals have tried
to force to the front, namely that the
Ho,ise of Lords should lie abolished
entirely, finds little favor, sueh a proposal is altogether foolish and in direct opposition to ihe modern principles  of  constitutional  government,  it

at under no cir-
cumstai :i u European counti j ob
tain a sovereign)' over any piece oi
territory in the western hemisphere.
That this is the interpretation put upon it by the United State- themselves
i> proved by tlie case oi Venezuela
That pseudo South American Republic laid committed several International offences. The position taken by the
I'nited States was tliat the Monroe
doctrine did not prevent an offending
nation from punishment, but that the
punishment must stop short of a permanent occupation ot the soil.
We may be quite sure    that    this
would be the position  taken in case
Great Britain were at war with a powerful European neighbor.  The  United
States  would not  prevent  the troops
or ships of the hostile State from in-
flincting damage on  Canada  if  they
were able.   They   would  endeavor  to
pi event any permanent occupation of
the country. But    if they    performed
thai   service  tliere  would  be an  irresistible inclination  to keep the prize
for themselves. The youth who plunges into the angry waters and rescues
the   heiress   usually   wants   to   marry
her.
W'e  Canadians  do  not   invoke   the
Monroe doctrine    for    ourselves,    although we believe in it, and the time
may come when Yankee and Can ink
will  be ranged side  by side    in    defence of it.  We share the glories of
the British race, and  will also manfully   endure   whatever     mischances
may  befall  it.  W'e    have,    moreover,
few   misgivings.   Never   did   Britain's
future  seem   so  blight  and  magnificent as it does at this moment. Growing up all about    her Is a   group   of
young nations, of immense potential
unexhausted  wealth,  attached  to  her
by stronger ties than human wit could
devise. In them the  Britisli spirit  is
rekindled into a mightier flame than
ever before. It Is the greatest fact in
the modern world, and they are blind
Indeed who cannot see it. The  Mon-
roe doctrine will have the sanction of
that advancing group of mil ions, but
it does not need to be Invoked    on
Canada's  behalf.  If  the   Empire  cannot itself protect every part it will be

tlie students' demonstration., amounted to about $3uiHi a year. At this |
rate the cost to-the'London ratepayers is something 'like- $10,(JU0. Night |
and day constables blue been on duty
and sentry boxes hav'e had to be
erected for the convenience of the j
watching officer!..      ;
The tirst idea of the Battersea authorities was to request that the Inscription be changed, but even in that;
ease the statue would still "fend
some people, so the decision has been
made to take away the effigy altogether.
An eminent suugeon in London suggests that wherever the dog may next
be set up he may be allowed to write
the Inscription on it, which he says
would be as follows;
"The dog was submitted under profound anaesthesia to a very slight
operation in '.he interests of science.
In two or three days it waa healed
and remained perfectly well and free
of all pain. Two months later it was
again placed under profound anaesthesia for further experiment and was
killed under the anaesthetic, lt knew
nothing of what was bting done to
it on either occasion.
"Nolle Ol us can count (ill so easy a
death. We doubtless shall suffer
pain or distress, both mental and
physical.
"This dou was free .Uikr from fear
and   suffering.      lt    died  neither  of
starvation nor of overfeeding, nor of
I . dens from old age.
"It just died in its sleep.'
which l tered in fair quantity and sold read
ily. Lamb and mutton were fair
supply and good demand. Pork was
more plentiful than other lines and
sold well. Veal w-as not as plentiful and was quickly disposed of.
Dressed fowl and turkeys were no
in evidence, all apparently
having been cleared during Christmas week. A few geese and ducks
were offered and sold easily.
Eggs were for sale in an average
quantity and were cleared readily at
BOo wholesale. Fowl were offered
In fair number and were soon sold at
the prices ruling last week. A few
ducks were sold rapidly.
Apples were not as plentiful and
sold readily. Potatoes were a good
offering and cleared early. A few
flowers, cut and in pots, adorned the
florists stands despite the frost and
were eagerly sought while they
lasted.

Rome, Dec. 28.���Baron Sonnlno'a
tirst act a> prime minister has been
to abolish the censorship o: the press.
This did not require any special law,
having been purely arbitrary and
based on a provision of the ptnal
code which prohibits the transmission
of news which Is against the security
of the state. For Instance, up to the
present time no foreign correspondent were allowed to telegraph to
their papers the degree of temperature In Italy when it was exceptionlly
high or remarkably low, for fear that
tourists would be kept away from the
country.

Cut Tax on Laundries.
Pt. Thomas, (int.. Dec. 28.���The

upon, this being satisfaxtory t0 both
Chinese and white laundrymen.
Import  Frozen  Turtles.
London. Dee. 28.���After feasting on
frozen pig from China and chilled
beef trom New Zealand. London
gourmets are now being treated to
frozen turtles from Queensland,
The turtles are killed sunn after
capture, frozen ami shipped to England by mail steamer. There are
about 400 of theni in England at
present. They weigh from lt.'ii pounds
to 300 pounds.
On extra large one of S86 pounds
would lie worth fliMi alive, but l.i a
frozen state only fetched IB cents a
pound. They seem to give satisfaction at hotels and clubs, and the future development of the Queensland
frozen   turtle   trade   loks  bright.
Otl awa, Dec. 29.���Among the mat��
ters engaging the attention of Hon.
Mr. Lemieux during his recent visit
to Europe were arrangements for tha
exchange of parcels between the United Kingdom and Canada. For many
years past the charges have been *8
cents for the first pound or fraction
of a pound, and 12 cents for each
subsequent pound. The rate has
now been reduced to a uniform rate
of l- cents per pound, with a maximum limit of weight of 11 pounds for
a parcel.
Parcel post rates between Canada
and Jamaica, Trinidad, St. Lur.-is,
Barbadoes, Leeward islands and British Guiana have also been reduced to
a uniform rate of 12 cents per pound
or fraction of n pound, the limit of
weight for one parcel being 11
pounds.
The Leeward islands include the
postotlices of Domlnlco, Montserrat
and SI. Kitts. the latter offlce being
an exchange oflice for parcels for and
from Nevis and Virgin islands.
These  reduced  rates  come Into

No Increase for Railroadmen.
N'ew York, Dec. 29.���President F.
D. Underwood, of tbe Erie railroad,
does not believe that railroad employees will receive a general increase In wages if their demands are
based on incensed cosl Of living. In
a statement given out her today, he
says.
"The great hulk of those 1,500,000
employees live in communities where
food nnd provisions are cheap and
the cost of living has not gone up materially.
"There is no danger of a general
railroad strike. Railroad employees
want higher wages, but they are reasonable. They are willing, as a mass
to wait until the railroads have recouped in a measure from the hardships of the last panic. They hftve
reason to be grateful because they
were unaffected Qnanclall) by the
panic. Their wages were nm reduced and only those wbo were paid
by the mileage suffered."
