Board of Trade Waxes Enthusiastic Over Brilliant Prospects
of New Westminster��� J. B. Kennedy Writes
Concerning Bridge Subsidy.
"Enthusiastic," is a poor word to
describe the conditions thai prevailed
at the board of trade meeting held
last evening; when everybodj be-
came so optimistic concerning the future of Hriiisb Columbia generally,
and New Wesiiuinsler in particular,
lhat (heir feelings could nol possibly
be held in check, an I their applause
at several of Ihe speeches was so vociferous thai Ihe people passing along
Columbia si reel wondered whether it
was Stag  night  ai  an  Elk  gathering.
The majority of the discussions centered around the different Immigration schemes. II. T. Thrift making a
lengthy report on the work he has
been doing in connection with the emigration committee of which he is
chairman. In the course of his remarks, Mr. Thrift pointed oul the
many natural advantages of this province, and explained the manner In
which th<- development of the country
had Buffered on account of the lack of
unskilled labor for farm lands. He
produced a number of circular letters
which had been sent to several municipalities, asking them to endorse a
scheme for the bringing in of immigrants, and also passed a similar document around the table for the members to sign. After the members had
affixed their signatures, it was decided that the seal of the board should
he affixed to the document, and the
secretary was Instructed to canvass
the members of the board who were
not present in order to obtain their
signatures. An open letter to the
Hon. R. McBride, asking tiis government to take such steps as would
remedy the existing conditions, was
���also read.
A communication received from the
Montreal hoard of trade caused con-
���sliterabJe comment, arising from the
fact that the letter favored ihe abolition of the $500 head tax upon the
Ch'inaiir-u. basing its contention upon
the fact that this move would greatly
facilitate tin- more rapid construction
pf tin (I. T. I'. In the dis-
ClBdioii    which   followed   the      reading
of the letter, the polio advocated by
t!ie Won;-v.il board was roundly denounced by several speakers, who resented the prospect of ihe Invasion of
a horde ofChinamen, mainly in order
that the construction of a railway
should 1 i hastened. The communication was finally referred to the committee on emigration, with instructions to reply to the writer, and enlarge  upon the subject  discussed.
A communication from the western
correspondent ol ihe Monetar> Times,
enclosing a cop) of a write-up which
it is proposed to insert in that journal, was re.ni and discussed al length.
A few minor inaccuracies concerning
the district were corrected by the secretary during the reading of the document. A proposal to expen I $i||M
on an advertising contract with the
Monetary Times was referred to the
committee on advertising, tvltb powet
to ii:-i. Daring the discussion on this
subject, ihe value of advertising was
comment!' i upon b) several speakers,
everyone being in favor of making
the giant. II. T. Thrift suggested
the advisability ol Including in thfi
write up ii natural advantages oi
this citj a a site foi- a woolen mill.
while another member suggested that
the need of a wholesale grocery
should be properly advertised, b> the
same mean-. Someone else suggested
.a first class hotel, and finally the set-
Dement of all these points was h-l'l
in the banes <>'' tiie i oromittee.
A communication from the board of
railway commissioners asking for further particulars respecting a complaint liiiulc some time ago concerning the inequality of freight rales
westward from Calgary, was referred
to the committee on transportation
A letter from the Hon. W, Temple-
man,   replying   to    a    communication
sent him  by  the board of trade some
time ago,    staled   lhat     he  could  notj
admit   the   contention   of   the     hoard
that the  King  Fdward  should  not be'
used for any  oilier  purpose than the;
deepening m the Anuieville liar channel.     The  concluding  pari   of  the  letter etated  thai   Mr. Tenipleman hoped
that the  boat!)  would  lake a less narrow View of the subject, and  not  object to  the  dredge  being  taken   away
for a short time in order lo d ���? ,ent

letter was received and f �� and upon
the suggestion of the ffl ident, the
secretary was Instruct o write Mr.
Tenipleman informing him that the
letter sent to him by the board merelj
referred to the removal of the dredge

the propose.i unlversltj site question,
saying that of the three sites proposed

Other two sites are at Kltsalano and

that something must be done for the
Royal Institute of learning next
spring. After a few remarks by D.
S. Curtis, who staled that the university work of Columbian College
would eventually be amalgamated
with the provincial university work,
but that the other branches of learning would be continued at the college.
The committee on education was
granted  further time.
With regard to the celebrate^ resolution moved by .1. D. Taylor at the
meeting of the hoard, lield in November, the enacting clause of which was
as follows: "This board of trade hereby
respectfully petitions the government
Of Canada to grant to the people of
British Columbia, as represented by
the government of the province, the
builders and owners of the bridge ai
Xew Westminster, a substantial subsidy lu wards defraying the cost of
said bridge, to the end that the tolls
now Imposed upon vehicular and passenger traffic may be removed iu consideration of the receipt of tbe subsidy hereby requested," the following
letter dated Ottawa, Dec 15 and addressed to the secretary, was read,
and on motion ordered to be received
and   tiled,   aud    copies   handed    to  the

enclosing resolution of the Board re
ii main to the Fraser Hive:- bridge,
was duly received. The resolution
is \vvy misleading as to the subsidies
Liaute.i 10 bridges by the Dominion,
lu the list which was given, neatly
all were for railway bridges, which
railways had been subsidized by the
Dominion government. The bridge at
Ottawa is a bridge connecting two
provinces,  and  the  others  are   bridges
which the Government intend using
for their own railways. The bridge
ai New Westminster, as the Hoard
well knows, is entirely a provincial
matter, and the government has never subsidized any work of a purely
provincial character. I discussed this
mailer with Sir Wilfrid and he explained all this to me. He said that
the Dominion subsidizes the provincial governments and they are at liberty In do as they please with the
money    thus    received.      They   intend
Increasing the subsidies very materially, and when this addition to the revenue of the provincial governments
is granted, ihe) will lie al liberty to
use it for the bridge, or for anj othet
mallei- that they see lit. I hope thai
thej    may   sec   fit   to   free   the   bridge
at  New  Wesminster from tolls, which
no doubt would be very much appreciate i  by the whole community,
yours truly,
John Peck was called upon to give
some details in connection with his
trip to London to attend the sixth
annual congress of Chambers Of Cum
n.erco, which was held from duly In
to July 13, 1906, inclusive. Mr. Peck
gave a comprehensive resume of the
proceedings which had taken place,
which included a two days' discussion
on the preferential tariff, a resolution in favor of which had eventually
been carried by a vote ol 190 to 35,
21 remaining neutral. Mr. Peck also
commented upon the great interest
which was at present being taken in
ltritish Columbia by people of the
old country, and touched at some
length upon the Immigration question.
Two new members, H. O. Dorer, and ;
A. Hardman, were elected members
of the board. At the close of thfi
meeting the secretary announced thai
as the next meeting would be the annual meeting of the board, it was advisable   to   appoint   auditors   to   look

Measure Introduced by Minister of Agriculture Will Give

The Columbian devotes most of its report of the

the wit and wisdom displayed by one J. D. Taylor.
How modest some folk are, to be sure!
No, gentlemen of the Tory press, hot air and
vituperation will not win an election. You are on
the run, and you know it; but you ought to retain
some small shreds of sanity and decency.

The proposal to erect a  first  class

taking definite  shape,  and  steps  are
being taken for the purpose of erect-:
ing an  hotel  that  would   compare  ia-
vorably with any on the Pacific coast. ���
It is proposed to organize a joint stock
company, and issue bonds to the ex-'
tent of $75,000 or $100,000.
E. J. Cretin, whose lease on the Guichon hotel will expire In a couple of
years, is one of the promoters of the
scheme, and has promised that he will
take at least $5,000 of the stock. In
Mr. Crean's opinion, such an hotel
could be made to pay from the very
start, and the presence of a really
first class stopping place in New Westminster would ;ittract a large number
of wealthy capitalists, who would Undoubtedly make heavy ivestments in
ihe surrounding district. At the
present time, the wealthier class of
people are very infrequent visitors to
the city, and remain here only a short.

The meeting then proceeded to nominate a candidate, and the president,
���I. S. Rainey, was the unanimous
choii e.
The account of the meeting handed
in to the Daily News concludes with
the words, "The next member for
"Westminster Wag then given three
rousing cheers. The meeting then adjourned."
Now, it was certainly very good of
liicit, to give F. W. Howay, "three
rousing cheers," but was it not a little inconsistent, all things considered?
The premier's platform stories
about the hard fight Oliver is having
in Delta, do not quite correspond with
certain facts. There was that unanimous vote of confidence at South
Westminster the other evening, for
example; and here is an extract from
the report of a government meeting
held In Ladner last week. The extract is from the Delta Times, an independent paper, which is undersio.nl
to lean to the McBride side of anything: "Mr. McKenzie had about a
ream of typewritten manuscript which
he produced and it was quite a relief
to the audience when he announced
that he did not intend to adniinste:
It all to them at once, but would give
a portion of it to-night and the balance at another meeting whiclr he
had advertised for a later date. Tke
principal ingredient of his S] ��� if
was the scliool act. . . . Mr. McKenzie continuing, said that he proposed having a bridge built across
Canoe pass and the River road completed to Ladner. He said thai Mr.
Oliver antagonized the government and
consequently they would do nothing
towards public works in Delta.
Mr. Oliver followed and in his usual
clear and forceful manner illustrated
the fact that he is capable of taking
the platform and holding his own
against   all  comers.
Mr. Oliver does not use such flowery language as some public speakers, but he has a way of saying things
that gets them right home to the people. He quote 1 Hie premier as having said that he never discriminated
against any riding because it had returned an opposition member and
compared this statesmanlike utterance to the narrow minded proposition of Mr. McKenzie that If a government supporter was elected necessary
public works would be al once constructed.
Hon. Mr. McBrlde was the next
speaker, and was listened to with
great attenelon and frequently applauded. He said there was no intention on the pari of the government to
discriminate against districts sending
Liberal members to the house." From
which it would appear that Mr. McBride, being "up against it," preferred
to keep himself solid and throw down
his candidate.

Rev. Dr. Rugg Addresses Fairly Large
Gathering in Week of Prayer
Another meeting in connection wit
the week of prayer was held in St.
Paul's church hist evening.
Rev. T. Wardlaw Taylor, I'b.I).. was
the leader of the service, and Rev. M.
1.. Rugg, D.D., gave an able address
upon "The Duty of the- Christian
church   regarding  good government."
In brief, the speaker dealt with the
subject  as  follows:
The problem respecting government
dales its appearance from the creation. The Lord gave to the first man
the power lo govern the lower creation, and in the various stages of the
history of mankind, God has taken
steps to Introduce good government.
The government given through Moses
made way tor the new form of government, tit the head of which is
desns Christ.
To ihe Christian church has been
entrusted the work of establishing the
Kingdom of Hod and the church will
continue that work till Hod, through
His Son shall reign supreme.
Christianity was not confined to
the places of worship for the truths
proclaimed from tin- pulpits were
those upon which all good government
was  based.
At   limes  when national  righteous-!
ness   was   in   question  the  preacher's
voice should  he heard  upon  political
The present age is an age of indivi-'
dualism. Men are striking out independently so lhat the church has a'
duty lo perform in pointing out the
right path. The speaker said that he
did not advocate a preacher becoming
a party leader, but the preacher's duty was to lead men in righteousness.
The church should teach parental
authority, for the home was a niina-
inre kingdom. Hood homes would eventually   lead  lo  good   government.
The church had in the past put
forth great efforts for the reformation
of men; but prevention was far better.
'idle church   should   remember   that
i'    stands   for  justice,   and   righteousness as weil as goodness, and mercy; I
then  it   indeed   would   truly   be  called,

Peculiar Mnnner In Which Proposals
of  Hiirrinm-   Are   Made.
There is an old custom prevailing
among the Tyrolese regarding proposals of marriage. The Hrst time a young
man pays a visit as avowed lover he
brings with him a bottle of wine, of
which he pours out a glass and presents it to tbe object of his desires.
If she accepts it the whole affair U
settled. Very often the girl has not yet
! made up ber mind, and then she will
j tak,e refuge in  excuses so as not to
' drink the wine and yet not refuse it
, point blank, for that is considered a
The T'ribune has; gro8S jnsult, proving that she has been
merely  trifling  with  the affections of
ber lover.
She will, for instance, maintain that
tbe wine "looks sour" or that wine ills-
agrees with her or that she is afraid of
getting tipsy or that the priest has forbidden her to take any���in fact, she
makes use of any subterfuge that presents itself at that moment.
The purport of these excuses Is that
she has not come to a decision and that
the wine offering is premature.
This strange custom, dating very fat
back���according to one a/tcount, it was
known as early as tbe ninth century���
is called "bringing the wine" and ia
synonymous with the act of proposing.
Shy lovers, loath to make sure of
their case beforehand, find it a very
happy Institution, Not a word need b-,
spoken, and the girl is spared the pain
ful "No" of civilization.
if any of the wine is spilled or the
glass or bottle broken it Is considered
a most unhappy omen���in fact, there is
a peasaut's saying for an unhappy
marriage, "They have spilled the wins
between them."

How tu Heinove a Corn; Try  It.
Expose the corn and pass the finger
tips of your right band over it slowly
and caressingly, at the same time sending a vibration from the brain to the
corn. If It is a soft corn 4KJ vibrations
per second will suffice; if a hard corn,
put on a forced draft. Repeat slowly,
"I am now sending a current of
thought force litu my corn und so separating, deducing, disintegrating, rendering, splitting, sundering, splintering, snipping, dwelllcatlng, whittling,
dispersing, dislocating, eliding, divorcing, pulverizing, slashing, slicing and
dissecting it that presently it will puss
away. Repeat it three tin ^ then,
with rising inflection, "Avnuui? uvaunt,
avauntl" Finish by repeating the password: "The universe is nine. I am it."
The corn will at first look extremely
surprised, the.i wilt and fade beautifully from sigh:.���New Thought. j

night as comfortably as he could on
the seats of the little station waiting
room. The trip up the liver was said
to be the last one the Minto would attempt  until  a more  favorable season.

"This business Ot allowing the clearing of lands in this province to be
carried on by the old fashioned pioneer method, one man clearing his
own farm, a little bit tit a time, is entirely worn out. What you need is
to rapidly settle the province, and ,
more particularly that strip of it between New Westminster and Chiiliwack, where the B. C.E.R. will shortly
be running its tram cars, Is an up-to-
date method of clearing the kind. The
clearing of the land should all be done
bj machinery, anil after ihis was done
the settlement would be a simple matter. It would be easy to induce capitalists to equip a plan: for the extraction of stumps on a wholesale
settle, and the clearing of the land
along the Chiiliwack line would only
be a matter of months instead of '
Dr. Lafferty, a prominent Calgary
practicioner, the man who voiced the
above opinions, Is an optimistic believer In the future of the city of
N'ew Westminster, as his speech clear-
Ij proves, lb- goes t yond mere talk
: >o, for during the few days that he
has been in the city, he has invest d
several thousand dollars In real property, and when he returns to Calgary, he Intends to boost New Westminster for till he Is worth. He is
very much in earnest about the clearing of timbered lands by machinery,
nnd thinks this is the only logical
way of quickly settling the province
with men who have money, but who
dc not care to spend years of their ���
lives in clearing their land.
"There are hundreds of men in the
territories," continued Dr, Lafferty,
"who are looking to British Columbia
as their future home, but they certainly will not consent to settle any-'
where where they have to start working ..way at the clearing of the land.
These men have pioneered once in
the northwest, and have now amassed
tt i ompel encj. and would be willing
to pay for cleared land. There is no
other way of providing them with
what they desire than by clearing the
timber off  with   machinery."
Questioned as to whether this machinery clearing would not entail a
considerable loss of timber, Dr. Lafferty replied that the men who put
the money in the work of clearing the
kind would certainly see that they
did not waste any timber. The trees
would be chopped down, the timber
sawed and split, and the stumi.s all
extracted by machinery, and everything marketable would be sold. The
benefits of I lie scheme would be twofold, the land would be quickly clear
ed, and the timber would be marketed
much sooner than would otherwise
be possible.

years time, ! oth Ides of the Fraser

and other Importacl industries, and
that this city will ha e '���"��� ome on

She began posing when she was a
small child. When she was eight her
mother earned a living for the girl and
herself as a bookkeeper. Rosa had
been posing one day for a statue of the
child St. John. After the sitting was
over she went home aud told her
mother not to work any more, that she,
eight year-old Rosa, would support
them both. Not so long after that the
child really was doing what she said,
her mother remaining at home and
keeping house and making beautiful
fancy garments for Itosa to wear in
ber poses. Miss Marston learned early
the value of a nice wardrobe, Still
she never spent all her earnings on
clothes. She declares that Is the trouble with most working girls���that they
fool away their money on extravagant
apparel. If they would resolve to begin and save a certain amount weekly
or monthly the interest on even a
small sum would socio count up. Then,
too. Miss Marston Is sure working
women do not eal enough nourishing

Perhaps it can be said with truth for

i business which still bears bis name a
number of years ago. lie built a dry
dock In which ships might be secured
aud their bulls cleaned and repaired.
Steam engines and a sawmill constituted ptirt of the plant.
Mr. Lawless died nearly six years
igo,  leaving his daughter heir to the
. dock and shipyard. Immediately she
assumed command, showing executive
ability that would have been remarkable even in a person accustomed to
practical shipbuilding and repairing. A
fin- destroyed nearly all the property
some time ago, but the young woman
dry dock operator rebuilt it on an extended scale and il Is now more prosperous than ever. Miss Lawless has
much personal magnetism.

Keeping Onlorm   Iu   Winter.
To keep onions through the winter
there are two Important [mints to re-
member. They must be perfectly dry
when cribbed and must be kept in a
very cool place, with plenty of ventilation. A temperature of about X2 degrees is necessary to preserve onions.
A good way to store onions is to build
shelves or bins with slats so tiie air
can circulate freely among them. Do
not pile them more than two feet
deep, because they are likely to get
warm nnd rot. There is little danger
of the temperature getting too low for
unions. They have been known to
withstand a temperature of less than
zero without freezing. Should they
happen to become frozen, however.
they should not be bandied, but kept
in the dark. Moving and handling
them do more harm than the frost.
Sore   Mnulli   nt Cattle.
The treatment for Mycotic stomatitis,
or sore month of cattle, is as follows:
Bring the affected animal to the bam
or barnyard and feed on soft, nufrl
tious food, such us bran mashes,
ground feed and gruels. A bucket of

Hon   It   \\ ill  < ome   According   to   the
homeland   Myth.
One of the most striking of the Norse
land myths is tliat in which is pictured
tbe end ot ihe universe, when all the
gods of Asgard and Nittleheiin and the
inhabitants of Jotunhelm and Midgard.
together with their habitations, would
be destroyed. That this catastrophe
would come to all the visible creation
they firmly believed, for their untaught
minds could not conceive of immortality.
And this is how they pictured the
fearful time: Three winters would
come upon the earth, one after another,
without the tempering influence of a
single summer. Snow would fall from
every quarter of the heavens, wild
storms would sweep over the earth,
with tempestuous winds that nothing
could withstand, aud the sun would
lose Its heat.
Three other winters would succeed
the first three, during which red vis-
aged war would stalk over the universe, leaving blood and death In its
ruthless track. Then the earth would
begin to tremble iu uncontrollable fear,
the sna would rush from its bed, the
heavens would be rent, and the eagles
of the air would feast upon the still
quivering flesh of multitudes of men
slain without warning.
Fends,    the    wolf    monster,    would
throw off his bonds; the Midgard ser-
pent, whose gigantic form encircled the
world,   would  rise  from   its  lair,  and
Lokl, the evil genius of tbe universe,
; would   desert   the   gods   and   go   back
among their enemies.    Surtur would
lead his followers to the Bifrost bridge,
devouring   flames   before   and   behind
tbem.    and.    having    destroyed    it    in
their   passage,   they   would   join   I.oki
' and the frost giants on the battlefield
of Vigrid,  win-re  Feuris, the Midgard
serpent nnd the hosts of Hela had al-
: ready assembled.
Meanwhile Heimdall, the watchman
! of Asgard, tiie abode of th-> gods, would,
sound the alarm with the Glallar horn,
summoning the celestial cohorts to the
, field.    Odin,  clad  In  all  the splendor
of his supreme office, would lead forth
the   gods   In   martlf.i   array.     Fenris,
pressing   forward    would  throw   hini-
��� self upon Odiu  with a fierceness that
! the deity could not withstand, and the
All Father would fall, pierced with a
thousand  wounds from  tho monster's
Then Vidar, the son of Odin, would
fall like a thunderbolt upon the blood
I reeking wolf and avenge his celestial
; father's death. Thor, the all powerful,
would slay, with his great hammer,
the Midgard serpent, but even as the
monster gave up its life its venomous
breath would wreak vengeance upon
the slayer, and Thor would sink down,
suffocated to death.
Meanwhile I.oki and Heimdall have
been seeking each other, and, having
met, they would fight with the fury of
demons until both were slain. Thus
all over tho bloody field gods and
giants, good spirits and evil, would
meet and slay each other, and when
the dreadful carnage was ended Surtur would send bis fiery Haines abroad,
and the universe would be burned.
The sun would lose its light, the
earth would disappear, the stars would
fall from heaven, and time would be
no more!

The Passlim of Courtroom Oralorv.
Inspiration is a lost art in the courtroom. Nowadays no true lawyer advises, prepares documents or tries 11
case without a careful preparation.
Forensic oratory has passed a way. No
longer does the crowd gather iu the
county courthouse to listen to nnd be
moved by the wit, pathos and eloquence of the advocate as for hours or
days he addresses the jury. The courtroom may be filled, but it is largely
with the ubiquitous reporters, many of
whom are as destitute of tears ns Sahara of water and as callous to emotion as the mummied sleepers of
Egypt. No longer is it true that weeping men and women with handkerchiefs to their eyes are moved by the
eloquence of counsel. Time is a pressing factor. Facts rather than eloquence is the demand.���I). 0, Brewer
