President G. B. Howley of the
State Federation of Labor Is in Duluth todav, leaving President Hawley

report was true that the freight handlers, machinists and clerks' unions,
which have grievances of their own,
would go on strike without awalUng
a further communication from Per-
ham. Hawley said:
'Such action on the part of those
unions would turn public sentiment
against the strikers and would not In
any way help the cause. I am not
ln favor of that kind of a sympathetic
strike."

was consumed. it the Incinerator
i. as good at consuming material
ubbisb as it is In getting away witn
.ei hal junk, there is no doubt as to
i s success. An argument on the in-
terpretation of one of the clauses In
the water agreemenl witn Richmond
- took up considerable time and
; veral other matters of more or less
Importance were disposed of.
An intimation was received from
the depai tment of marine and fisheries to tia effect that the sooner
the channel of the North Arm was
Reopened the better pleased all navigation would be.
Contract Let.
The contract for ditching about 250
j aids on Lull island on the city
property thin was awarded to Swan
Lundin, his tender of $647.70 for the
work being the lowest received.
There were two other tenders considered, P. Linqulst offered to do the
work for $551.50, and J. Cherry put
In a bid for $579.45. Tne cltj l >i-
gineer had estimated that the work
would cost lu the neighborhood of
I and satisfaction was expressed
that the actual amount fell about $50
shorl of that.
An accounl of $899.50 to the Do-
i Inion Wood Pipi ('ompany was or-
e red paid, and one that the finance
committee brought in for $2.40 was
also passed for payment,
The recommendation that Alberl

ai a cost of approximately $180.00,
was approved by the council, and recommendations that a sidewalk be
placed on the south side of Alberta
sl eet to Richmond street, and one
on Sixth avenue between Glen bridge
and the cinder path, were adopted 1 >'
the council.
On the recommendation of Alderman Jardine the B.C.B.R. was grant, d
permission to build a line ~>n Twelfth

that they grade the street to the
proper level, and formal consent wes
given for the douhh lracking Of the
west end of Columbia street Past the
Royal  City  Mills.
Wires  Overloaded.
Alderman Gray, >n behalf of the
light committee reported that he bad
received an application for a ligin at
the corner of Alberta and Richmond
streets, but owing to the overload on
the Sapperton wire the request could
not be granted at present. He stated that the matter would be attended
to as soon as the new machine was
installed at the powerhouse.
An application from Mr. Gregory
for a crossing in front of his resi
dence on  Eighth street was granted.
Alderman Adams thought that the
city should not grant permission for
the excavating ef any more cellars
on Columbia stnet without looking
into the matter further, as the work
Interfered with the progress of the
Hassam pavement. Tbe city engineer also reported that some of the
proposed cellars on the west end of
the street might be flooded at high
tide and he wished to know if the
city would be liable for damages in
such a case. It was decided to have

STEERAGE EVILS
FOUND AT HALIFAX
Lack of Ventilation and Proper Heating���Food Served and Eaten in
Sleeping Apartments.
Halifax, N.S., Dec. 28.���When the
Northwestern Transportation Company's steamer Sicilian l'rlnce arrived
from Rotterdam on Friday. Dr. Hawkins, the Dominion Immigration Inspector at this porl. got busy, having
recently read of the conditions on
some steerage steamships. Inspector Hawkins made a thorough examination of the steerage ou the Sicilian Prince, and tbe results of hl8 Investigation be communicated ln a report to the Canadian Immigration department. In the flrst place, Inspector Hawkins reports the absence
of proper ventilation ln the hospital.
Then he proceeds to say that there
Is no proper heating. Passengers,
he reports, are served with food In
their sleeping apartments ln the
steerage, and this Is eaten there. The
lavatories for men, women aad children are exposed to the weather, are
dirty and filthy in the extremo, and
are supplied only with salt water.
The floors of the different apartments
and cotnpanlonways, Inspector Hawkins Informs the Canadian government, are encrusted with dirt, and are
dangerous to walk upon. The regular ventilators are obstructed with
rags and paper. The Sicilian Prince
left for New York last night.
London. Dec. 28.���The English Liberal party leaders at last have pretty
definitely made up their minds what
to do with the House of Lords, of
course in case the Liberals wrin at
the coming British national election.
Whatever plan may be adopted for
genuinely popularizing England's
government will invoke such radical
changes In the country's present legislative system that much difference
of opinion has existed both as to ends
and methods. The extreme radicals
have advocated the complete abolition of a second chamber. Those of
a more model ale type have demanded
an i lective upper house. The element
which may be most accurately described as conservatively Liberal has
argued for a combination ot the (lective and hereditary principles.
Single Chamber Not Favored.
The group in favor of the single
chamber Bystem has been completely
overruled. England ls too conservative for such an innovation. Between
the two other groups of Libeiais a
compromise has been arranged. The
program ls this:
Assuming that the Liberals win at
the polls in January the Lloyd-George
budget will be re-introduced. It will
unquestionably pass. The Lords themselves are pledged to cease their opposition to the chancellor of the exchequer's proposals lf the country declares for them at tbe coming election.
That will dispose of the financial
problem and leave the Liberals free
to turn their attention to the reformation of the legislative system. They
propose to accomplish it by the constitutional change at which Premier
Asquith has been hinting In the various campaign speeches he has made
since tbe last parliament adjourned
under orders from the King. A bill
will first be passed by the commons
declaring the Lords unentitled to interfere with any financial legislation
passed by the lower chamber. It may
be decided not even to send such
bills to the upper branch for ratification, but even if ratification b.v the
Lords  is  required  it  will  be  merely
(Continued  on Page  Seven).
No fewer than two silver weddl B
were celebrated al Burnabj yesterday
the celebrants being Mr. and Mrs. B.
Q. Walker and Mr. and Mis. B. H.
Hill, all of tbem old residents of this
district.
The celebrations took place at the
residences of the respecti\ ��� couples,
a large nun,her of friends and rei i-
tlvea being preseni at both. At eai i
ni the residences there were banquets
and congratulations and felicitations
nl all kinds were ihe order of the day.
Although the two celebrations were
quite separate and distinct affairs, the
fact that, they should both fall upon
the same dale was too great coincidence to pasr onnotlced by the two
bridegrooms of twenty-five years'
standing. Owing to the fact that
they had their own celebrations on
hand Mr. and Mrs. Walker and Mr.
and Mrs. Hill were unable to he present at each other's residenc ,_\ to offer
congratulations in person, so they
compromised by rendering their fell-
citations over the phone.
At his residence Mr. Walker lirsl
made a little speech of conegratulatlon
to Mr. Hill which was transmitted
over the phone by a third party to
Mr. Hill, and then Mr. Hill returned
the compliment making a short address to his own guests congratulating Mr. Walker on his happy anniversary which in turn was transmitted
to Mr. Walker.
Drowned in Horse Trough.
Montreal, Dec. 28.���An extraordinary fatality occurred here last evening in the fountain on Victoria Bquare
in the very heart of the city shoitly
after nine. The man, evidently a
laborer, had been seen by carters at
the cab stand an hour before, evidently very drunk, and with friends
who, after making Ineffectual efforts
to get him to go home, ha .1 lefl him.
Nothing more was seen of the man
until a little girl today told one of
the cabmen that she bad seen a body
floating in the pond. Two carters
hastened to the spot and saw a body
floating face downward in the water.
which is about two feet deep. They,
with a policeman, dragged the body
out and found it was the drunken man
they had seen before. He had evidently sat on the coping, falling into
the water and been too overcome With
liquor to help himself. The body was
taken to the morgue, but nothing waa
found on his clothes which could aid
in identification.
The patrons of the Royal Cafe were
agreeably surprised the other evening
to find an orchestra in attendance
during the dinner hour. Tbe orchestra, which will be in attendance on
Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, Is
the result of the latest endeavor of
the proprietor, J. Cash, to make bis
restaurant rank as one of the best in
the province.

Hindu  Is  Discharged.
Butta Sing, the Hindu charged *''">
perjury hiBt week was allowed to g"
yesterday. He was examined as to
bis sanity by Dr. Jones nnd Dr. Drew
but was found to be mentally sound.
He bad four men arrested a week ago
on a charge of assault and they all
proved an alibi, one of the accused
preferring a charge of perjury against
Butta.
The pro*ii\clal police wanted to
hand the case over to the city police
for trial but the latter body would
not touch It. At Ilie time tbe man
laid the Information for assault he
was badly beaten up, so probably he
was only mistaken in his men and not
guilty of wilful perjury.
An Insane man was brought ln from
Port Moody esterday by Constable
Gammon of the provincial police. He
was examined by Drs. Jones and Kenny and found to be Insane, whereupon
he was committed to the provincial
asylum by Justice of the Peace Anan-

Victoria, B.C., Dec. 28.���Inexplicable and apparently widespread misunderstanding of the law with respect
to the eligibility of women as mem-
bets of public school boards throughout British Columbia ls indicated in
the argument of numerous mainland
newspapers to the effect that the law
should be so amended as to give women the same tlghtB as men in this
regard. There is no need for such
amendment as equal rights are at
present enjoyed. The suggestion
that such rights are uot extended to
cities, such as Vancouver and New
Westminster, operating under special
charters from the legislature ls denied by Superintendent Robinson,
wbo points out that the School act Is
everywhere In British Columbia
equally applicable.
The experience of Victoria, which
has bad the services at various times
of no fewer than four women on the
school board, emphasizes the fact.
Ladles to be eligible as school trustees must poBsese of course tbe same
qualifications as men, I.e., they must
be qualified mayoralty voters on property held in their own names. Given this qualification, the fact of their
being married, widows or spinsters,
makes no difference.

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER  29,  1909
THE  ELIXIR OF LIFE.
This seems to be tho age Of the
food faddist There is constantly
I .eing forced upon one's notice some
new vagary or nostrum for the cure
of the dyspeptic or consumptive, the
treeing of humanity from all the Ms
of the llesh, the rendering of the corpulent thin, or the making oi the
spare person corpulent, the prolongation of life beyond the allotted span,
or what not. The latest era/,, in
this direction is the drinking of sour
milk, or the eating of tabloids charged
with sour milk baccllll. This is the
one thing oi the momeni thai is occupying the attentions of our relatives
and friends on the other side of the
Atlantic.
This sour  milk craze outs its origin to the hook   of   Professor Rein-
bardt,   published a few   months ag"
under the title of "120 years of life.'
in this the theory of Dr. Metchnlkoff,
pathologist   at the Pasteur  Institute
at Paris, that sour milk prepared according to the Balkan plan is the very
< lixir   of   life,   was   expounded   at j
length.     The famous pathologist, being struck by the abnormal number of
centenarians    he met    when in Bulgaria, proceeded    to investigate  the
cause and came to the conclusion that
the long life of these hardy people of
the mountains was due to the fact
that  sour  milk    formed  the  loading
item ln their daily dietary.      Uy experiment   Dr.    Metchnikoff   deduced
the theory that this milk, prepared by
means  of  a   living  culture  of  lactic
acid baccilli, destroys putrefactive organisms in the human stomach.   This
theory  being    strengthened    by  the
support of Dr. Osier, a leading London physician, sooa became generally
talked about and ere long was adopted in practice.     The Idea has caught
on  amazingly   and every  oae is looking forward  to a greatly lengthened
life.     The drug stores everywhere In
Great Britain arc    making a  special
display  of    sour milk    lozenges and
chocolates jspecially prepared Metchnikoff milk is retailed by the dairies
and other stores at  high  prices;  and
many  domestic  establishments  lune
added  the  preparation  of sour  milk
for  home  consumption  to  the cares
and trials oi dail}  housekeeping.
uut of the craze have grown q ii'1
an Interesting number ol special dishes and food preparations. There Is
yaghourti; a preparation of curdled
milk not unlike the old-fashioned
junket; Massol, a scientifically prepared food of a somewhat similar
character, and so on. There are ap-
Pari ally a few simple minded folk in
whom something of the plain wisdom
of their grandmothers remains, who
an smile at their fellows who are
ing fabulous prices for machine-
lade preparations, and themselves
enjoy tin plain but delicious buttermilk in all its freshness and purity.
The health and vivacity and the beau*
tiful complexions of the old-time dairy
imiids wero undoubtedly- due to the
���ample use of buttermilk in their dietary, but whether these buxom and
.beautiful creatures were all centenarians it would bo bard to say.
However, there can be no question
that milk In any form is one of the
best and most nourishing articles of
diet, particularly for the young; and
it may be that the Metchnikoff theory
is a thoroughly sound one. It is
aulte certain that such modern physical evils as appendicitis and the
like were unknown lo our progenitors, and if wo can only get buck to
the simpler ways of living which they
in the main followed, humanity will
be all the better for ii.
of its patents, as had been done
lore by American fluis.
On account of the uncertainty of
the whole deal it was decided to leave
the matter iu the hands of a committee composed of the city engineer.
the citv solicitor, ami Alderman J.
Carter Smith for further investigation. The committee is to report
the result of their labors at the next
meeting of the council.
An  old   friend  of  the  council,   the
Richmond    Water    agreemenl,  again
commanded the attention uf the senators for an hour or so.     The clause
j that  caused all the trouble wa8 one
.to the effect that the Richmond mu-
I nicipality would have power, after the
expiration  of  20  years,   to  keep  the
pipe line from the reservoir In repair.
As part of the line    passes through
the   limits  Of  New   Westminster   the
question was    raised    as to whether
the    municipality     would    have   the
power to dig up the city's streets.
Tho city solicitor was asked for
liis opinion on the subject, and stated
that they would not have the right to
do so, wii bout the permission of the
council. Later on he admitted that
ila city could not refuse to giant
the permission. This did uot seem
to satisfy all the members of tl"-'
council. It was finally dei Id id thu
It would be a good scheme if representatives Of hoth iian.es got together and came to a definite understanding ahout the disputed clause. Aldermen Ad tins, Johnston and .lardine, who were appointed a committee to look after the business, will
^endeavor to have a meeting with
Reeve Bridges aud Councillor Trites
of the municipality nexi Thursday
morning.
The last meeting of the present
council will he held in the council
chamber next Monday morning at 11
o'clock. lie'ween V. and 12 the
new oo.mcil will be sworn in and will
take over -he relnJ of oflice.

���Mdermaii Gray remarked that he
did not think that Alderman Johnston
had been sincere in all he said, for,
he had consented to the awarding ol
the contract for some ditching on
Lulu island earlier in the evening, in
spite of the fact thai the new council would take over the reins of government in a few days.
Alderman .lohnston���1 am sincere
in what I said. The awarding of the
j ditching contract was a different
case. In all the three years that I
have been in the council it has nevi r
been put up to me before that I was
not sincere. If there is any man on
this hoard that, has been sincere In
everything he has said, that man bas
been myself.
He was ahout to say more but the
mayor   interrupted  him.
"1   think   you  are    slightly   out  of
order," remarked bis worship.

SPECIAL BARGAINS FOR XMAS
The   management   of     the   New
Westminster Lacrosse club will pul
their heads together In the course of
the present week over the challenge
of the Montreal Lacrosse club for a
series of games for the Minto cup,
which has just been received by Secretary Ryall.
The Montreals, as if course every
sport knows, are champions oi the N.
L. U.     They  would have submitted
their challenge  for  a series ot  Kami 8
last year, but owing to the close race
foi  the championship bei ween themselves and the Shamrocks they were
not l'ree to do so until it was loo latii
to   arrange   for   any   games,   and   thb
matter was postponed until next year.
Dispatches from Montreal state thai
the N. L. U. champs have already notified  the  trustees  Of  the   Minto  CUp
at Ottawa of their  intention Oi  chai-,
lenging.     That, however, is a mere
formality.     Al the close oi hiat sea-1
son  the    Salmon    Bellies expressed
their entire willingness to unci, the |
Montreals next summer, and all that!
remains    now  is    the  fixing of    the
dates.
This is what  the meeting this week
will attempt, to do.      Just when the'
big tournament will be pulled off it is ,
impossible to say, but  ii  will proba- j
bly be early in the season and a ma-!
Jorlty of the management of the local
club seem to favor a. dale that would
bring the second game of the series
on May 24.

NOTHING DOING.
Salmon    Bellies    Don't    Want    Billy
West  Notwithstanding.
The Officials Of the New Westminster Lacrosse club were surprised to
learn yesterday morning on the authority of that veracious dopester of
lacrosse news, the Vancouver News-
Advertiser, thai they are contemplating the importation of Billy West, the
eastern laciosse star, who is at the
present time hanging out In the Terminal City. The News-Advertiser's
jiotitication was the flrst heard of il
by the management of ihe Salmon
Bellies, and even despite the assurance of the 'Tiser they are rather dubious about it.
When the subject was broached to
the oilieials of the club yesterday
they had some difficulty remembering
just who Billy West; after a time,
however, they labelled the name on
to the man who played fust defence
on the Regina team when It visited
the coast. Billy West is one of the
Btand-byea of Jlmmle Murphy of ro-
ronto; he is said to be a good man
on the defence, but as New \\ (-stminster doesn't need defence men. and
as in an.v case the policy of nothing
but bona Hile Salmon Bellies for tne
Salmon Belly lean, has been adopted
it is Improbable that New WesUiun-
sterltes will get a chance of seeing
said BUlv in action next season, unless Con Jones manages to snaz/.le
on to hlm for his own cosmopolitan
aggregation.
Rovers at Work.
The Rovers are practicing steadily
for their game wiih the Shamrocks
on Saturday of thc present week and
will put a splendiu team in the field.
The personnel of the aggregation
that will represent the local club has
noi yel been definitely decided upon,
I.,u it is probable that ii will he l"""-j
tlcally the same as that which put
up such a good game against the Celtics Of Vancouvei' last  Saturday.
I'p to the present the local football
tie, u have played in Hie worst sort of
luck. if good play could have secured the victory they should certainly have come out on top last Saturday, hut the luck.was against them.
.Next Saturday, however, they hope'
to he able to put a finish on the hoodoo that has been dogging them
throughout thc season.
The game will  take place on the
Queen'B park OVftl.

Former President Loubet Says It Has
Made Possible Methods of Public
Oppression.
Paris, Doe. 28.���Former President
M. Loubet lias excited uiucli interest
by a lecenl Bpeecu on the electoral
system ol France new In vogue,
He strongly denounces the system
as demoralizing and deformed, He
says the people in Paris have no Idea
(U the suae of morals which this systi ai has broughl aboul, oi the lvraa-
ni< s wnich ii bas created, or oi the
methods of public oppression, which
ii  ii. a installed.
rhe former president of the republic has had no such experience, and
is so highly respected thai his condemnation ot the electoral By; tern has
met with general approval by tiie
people,
tine method of the system which he
strongly condemns is the pamphlet
which is issued by the government
after each election, showing how each
voter has \cited. By simply looking
over this pamphlet the successful candidate can always tell who voted
againsi him and is thus enabled to
subjeel   those   voters   to   all   tonus   Of
Injustice when the opportunity presents Itself.
M. Umbel says thai alter a certain
part of the country lias had great, rain
or hall storms, which destroy the
crops, 'ic. there is a compensation
made io the owners for relief, in
this case, he says, only those who
have voted for the offlce holding in
power will receive this compensation.
Thus does M. Loubet describe the
political situation of France, arising
from iis imperfect electoral system.
He favors a secret ballol and ri gis-
tration of voters like tbat of the t'nited States,
VEGETABLE LIFE

Dutch Botanist Geis bpectrum of the
Chlorophyll   in  Th.i.-  Own
Atmosphere.
London,   Dec.   28.���Following   the
discovery of oxygen .... i water vapors
in the al mospheie Ol -Mars there
comes the news that flowers and
green foliage must be presi nt On the
planets of Jupiter and Saturn, and
more particularly on Uranus and Neptune.
The discovery has been made quite
independently by two scientists, one
a Russian named Tlmlrlazlew, the
other a Dutch botanist, Beyrinck, In
examining the spectre-photographs cf
these planets published by Prof.
Lowell and taken bj the well known
astronomer Mr. Sllpher, they discovered certain bands and lines which
correspond to the spectra of chlorophyll, to which the green foliage is
due, and the red and blue coloring
matter of flowers.

Dubois. Pa., Dec 28.���The bodies of
seven children were recovered today
from the ruins of the home of Steve
Bronosky, which was destroyed by
lire last night. The children ranged
from 2 to 12 years of age.
The fire started from an ovcr-heat-
ed stove in the kitchen. The woodwork was ablaze before Bronosky
realized It, and a minute later a keg
of powder, forgotten in the excitement, exploded with terrific force.!
spreading Ihe fire lo all parts Of the '
house and culling off every means
of escape from ihe upper part of the
place where the children lay asleep.
Bronosky, his wife and a boarder,
were badly burned and may die. .Mrs.
Bronosky made an ineffectual attempl
to reach er children by scaling the
remnant of stairway connecting the
first floor with the bedrooms. Six of
the dead children belonged to the
Bronosky family and one to the
boarder.

In reference to the hindrance
caused to navigation by the delay in
opening up the Lulu Island bridge
the    following   letter   was   received
from .ia s Gaudin, the ageni for the
Dominion   Marine  and   Fisheries  department al  Victoria:
"In the matiei of closing up uavi
gation on the North Ami of the Fraser river on accounl oi the construction of Lulu island bridge. I beg tee
inform you thai the public are very
anxious that the North Arm should
be opened to navigation. 1 am ad
vised that the contractors bave been
ready to open the channel for some
time and that the reason this has
not been done is that the city authorities are nol ready for them to complete their contracl bj removing the
old drawbridge and piers.
"I iii's to requesi that the city authorises will, at their earliest possible opportunity, allow tbe contractors
to complete iheir contracl In order
thai the obstruction of the North
Ann navigation be immediately removed."
The .communication was referred
to the special bridge committee with
power to act.
llis worship remarked thai thecon-
traotor had evidently been reporting
some things contrary to the facts to
the agent, lie did not think that the
contracting company were entitle.I to
any consideration whatever at the
hands of the new council. Alderman
Henley endorsed his worship's remarks, staling that be had had al
sorts of trouble with the bridge contractors.
Gilley Bros, wrote also, calling attention to the delay ln opening the
North Arm to navigation. They
claimed thai they ha t been put to
considerable trouble and expense on
account of the tardiness of the contractors iii finishing the bridge. Referred to the special Ini.ige eommittei .
A letter i'i om Wade. Whealler &
McQuarrie stating thai a telegram
had been recelvi d by them from Hu h
Guthrie to the effeel that he had
asked the premier to granl an extension of time in the Cocjuitlam dam
case, to enable the ciiy to reply to
the arguments of the Vancouver
Po���-.. r companj. The communication
" is n ! rred to the special Coquitlam
dam committee, which will acl with

Wont More Advice
te to Incinerator
(Continued from Page One.)
companj ts not, to my knowledge,
registered as a company within Britisli Columbia, and ll might not be
v,. i to niter Into an.v contract with
thi m until such enquiries are made
h the cily solicitor as to this, and
their financial status.
The guarantee bond Is for 16 per
cent, nf the contract, and Is made oul
,, | f3.oo0.00. I therefore consider
that If a contract is entered into 5
per cent, of the monies should be retained until after the period of trial.
The period of trial should be as long
as possible as it would be difficult
al firsl to get a general average of
reteise until the collection is thoroughly oi agnized.
Personal   Inspection.
I consider that Mr. Smith's Incinerator should be personally Inspected.
Personal Inspection of works of this
type is absolutely essential.
I do   not approve of Mr.   Smith's
i ausi     . a 2, 3 and 9 of his reserva-
ihe   word  "fuel   re-
f    e" i'i No, ::. This word fuel refuse
I  be further defined and describ
ed. As thu tenderer expects to find
that extra fuel will be required, the
nature of the fuel should be stated,
and his guarantee should include ;i
statement  of  the  amount   necessary
per   ton   of   refuse  destroyed.
The cost of disp sal as given by
Mr. Smiiii evidently does not Include
collection.
The tenderer will be expected to
guarantee the figures given in this
clause, the term "need not. exceed"
is nol definite enough.
The plans tis they stand cannot be
accepted until certain dimensions are
shown and constructional alterations
take place. There are no specifications given by Mr. Smiili for his cell
plant, motor (an materials, description of working, also a schedule to
base montli'j- certificates on, etc.
Mr. smith's tender win be withdrawn on the 6th proximo. No doubt
the council will decide whether they
consider il necessary or not to ask
Mr. Siniih for an extension of time,
if they decide to pursue Investigations.
In conclusion I would like to ttsk
the council to call In Mr, Booth, superintendent of the Vancouver incinerator, to give his opinion on Mr.
Smith's plants, and method of cremation, also the city solicitor as to the
legal aspect on the points I have
raised.
