"I haw known Mr. Gilley for a long
time, and was well aware that at the

impersonate him i should certainly
bave noticed it. Examination will,
1 think, show that Mr. Gilley's name

Delta  Were  Big  Success.
The usual Christmas tree and socia]
gathering was held in St. Stephens'
ai East Ladner. The building was
well filled witli children and their
parents anjj friends. A somewhat
lengthy program of songs, recitations
and dialogues was enthusiastically
encored, followed by a plentiful supply of refreshments, which were en-
Joyed amidst the lively chatter of the
children and the quieter fun of their
elders. A collection to defray tbe
expenses of the entertainment realized 120.25.
This was promptly followed by a
visit from Santa Claus, who with Ms
able assistants quickly distributed
the presents with which the Christmas tree was well loaded much to the
satisfaction of all present. An immense clothes basket upheaped with
bags of candies, etc., added much to
the children's pleasure.
The program  was as follows:
Speech by chairman, John Oliver;
chorus by school children; piano solo,
Miss Day (encored); dialogue, fonr
boys; piano duet, Misses Crawford
(encored); recitation, Reggie Weaver; dialogue, four girls; recitation,

Celebrated Economist Favors
Reform of House of Lords
New York, Dec. 27.���Dr. George B.
Prothero, an English scholar of International reputation, who is here
attending the convention of the American Historical association, regards
the present political crisis ln England
as one of the most serious through
which the country has ever passed.
Dr. Prothero, who is editor of The
Quarterly Review, and was formerly
head of the department of history at
'Edinburgh University, discusses the
House of Lords in a statement given
out here today.     He says in part:
"It seems to me that the mere curtailment of the powers of the upper
house will be worse than absolute
abolition. I would much rather _��
the whole responsibility east ost ��
single chamber than to have the I
remain as a mere constitutional
ment.
"Of course, there Is no doubt
the lords must be reformed ln sont��
way."

the premier and chancellor of the ex-   Registry Office of land and real prop-
chequer  downwards,  are   quite  satis-.city
fled  with    their    progress.      But, of
course, a vigorous New Year campaign by the Conservatives, with Balfour leading may changi their confident demeanor, li is officially Btated
that writs will now issue from tlie
crown office on January 10, thus corresponding with 1906 and giving the
Radicals whai they claim to be the
advantage of a Saturday poll iu the
earlier constituencies. Chamberlain
is making up for hi.s enforced silence
by a series of telling l< tters, in one
of which lie says:
"John Burns, speaking at Nine
Elms, complained that the placards
and cartoons of Unionists were slanderous. They were issued in th interests of the food taxer and trusts,
which would get a footing through
the tariff uud bring ... moi  l
degradation of the i li   as well as
their political corruption. It w.is
monstrous that London should be subjected to grosteque exaggeration..
which hid the tacts from the people.
Mr. MacNamara declared In a
speech last night that tht Tory party
had landed Itself in for a record defeat. So far as he could se thej
knew It, thi y Unci', lii'-y could not
face the constitutional issue raised by
Lord Lansdowne's motion, and thej
therefore rushed frantically from oni
expedient to another.

Clip The Horse
One of the greatest Improvements ever Introduced Into
stabb managements, according to leading veterinarians, ls the
custom of clipping horses.
A clipped horse will not only do a greater amount of
work than a hois.- with its natural coat, bul will at the same
time have more lif=. in him. On the other hand, the undipped
horse will be dull, out of condition, and s> Idem if ever dry
or clean.
Clipping again removes the tendency to sweat, and there
is   no  comparison   between a long wet coat and a short dry
nne.
It will pay to pu: one of our Twentieth Century Clippers
in your Btable. ('.ill in and l< t us explain to you th i simplicity, convenience ln handling, and the advantages of using

ANOTHER WORLD POWER.
Though the actual balance of power anions the civilized nations of the
globe lias not been materially altered
in recent years, some changes in this
direction have certainly taken P-lace.
One outcome of these changes is that
one of the nations of the far East,
whicli up to a very few years ago was
regarded as a negligible quantity in
the calculations of the empires of the
West, lias come to the front, both as
a naval and commercial force. Yet
another of the ancient civilazatlons of
the distant east will now soon have
to be reckoned with in like manner.

set her house Bonn what in order,
about tu reform and reconstruct her
navy. With a view to this being
done in the best possible way an embassy composed of distinguishi ,:
Chinese noblemen and otheis is at
present in England gathering all possible Information upon naval and military matters. This naval mission,
of wliich the chief members are
Prince Tsai-Hsun, Admiral Bah Chen-
Ping, and Li Ching-Fong, will, when
they have completed their investigations in Great Britain, proceed to
Germany and probably to France and
Italy, to further stud> naval and military affairs. Then they will rei inn
home and set about placing the offensive and defensive forces of China
upon a strong and modern footing.
From some of the statements tliat
have already heen made by members
of the mission it would appear that
they mean to go to work in a most
thorough manner. Their policy will
be to entirely abolish tlie old order of
things and commence de novo by the
establishment   of   an administration
and  force   that  Will   be  in  every   way
up to date.     Some portions of the reforms involved  in  the  policy  of  the
embassy have already  in en effected.

"They then made their way to the

Lonsdale were:

Seattle,  Dec.  27.���Henri   Si.   ?ves,
champion  marathon    runner,    again
proved  Ills  right   tO ho Clasaed us One
of ih'1 mosl remarkable distance men
tin' country has ever seen, when he
defeated John D. .Maish, champion of
Canada, in a 15-mile race yesterday
afternoon al Dugdale's park. Running
over a track Inches deep in halt frozen slush and Btick) mud, the marathon champion showed splendid stain-
ina and speed, coveting the 16 miles
in 1 hour, lis minutes, -17 -1-D seconds.
li was tiie little Frenchman's ability to finish a long grind with a burst
of speed that won lor him, tor .Marsh,
tlie Canadian, put up a great fight.
The last mile of the race was one of
the most spectacular local sports have
ever witnessed. The two men ran
close together and were seldom more
than two or three yards apart in the
last half. The final furlong was a
magnificent battle. Bach put forth the
last ounce of speed he had left lu Hie
effort to draw away from his opponent, but they were so evenly mat ched
that they ran neck-and-neck for Uie
final lap. lu the last 100 yards the
little Frenchman's superior speed
gave him a yard, und it was by just
a yard that lie heat Marsh to the tape.
The race Itself, excepl toward the
end when the incn began to sprint,
was monotonous in tin. extreme. Several  hundred enthusiasts braved tin

"Gus Kuhliii? W.-ll, the Akron

to annex the heavyweight tiUe.
"My last tight was with Jack Munroe. I never did think tliat he had
any right to be taken seriously and
to this day I am sorry that 1 bowed
to public demand and gave him a
match. I said all the time that Munroe was overrated aud tliat our little
affair at Butte was grossly exaggerated, to say the least. 1 hated to
enter the ring at San Francisco that
night, for 1 felt in my heart that
Munroe could not give me a contest
and that the public would not get a
run for their money in such a onesided exhibition.
Munroe Fight Disgusted Him.
In fact, the Munroe fight so disgusted me tliat 1 immediately mad.'

talked" me out of this idea for a short
time, on tlie plea that some day.
somewhere, tliere would pop up a

that I would yet have ample time to

No Doubt About Outcome.
"in conclusion I want to say that I
still hold to my old opinion that the
public is entitled to a contest. They
pay to see one and have a right to
expect for what they pay to see. I
also still believe that the true sportsman should enter ito a contest with
some little doubt. Bul this case differs from the ordinary. Johnson is
not a true sportsman, and for that
reason is not entitled to the treatment accorded under the rule lo a
true sportsman. Personally. 1 do not
expect a better fight from him than
that put  up by  Jack    Munroe.      Hut

myself and Johnson and 1 am positive

"Just one more word. Regarding
the making of this match, and libelous and malicious fabrications of
Bome sporting writers, who feel sore
because' their favorite promoter did
not land the match, let me tell you
that it is all bosh. The report of
any se.'iet agreement between John-
sen and myself is so ridiculous that.
1 do not even deem it worthy of contradiction. Jack Gleason and Tex
Rickard are men that need no coaching from any rival, nor are they In
need of any financial aid to promote
a $200,000 affair. As for myself. I
never was even accused of any wrong
doing, much less take part in anything that was not absolutely on tho
Unci.
"i am feeling, not as well, but much
better than 1 ever did in all my
career and would not enter the ring
if I had the LEAST DOUBT AHOUT
