The C. P. R.-McBride organ must have felt a !

its stomach, Saturday evening.
That knife which the Columbian used to use on
Mayor Keary so viciously, appears to have been wiped
and laid aside���until the next time.
Because McBride sometimes did the right thing
by New Westminster, says Mayor Keary, he should
be allowed another four years to hand our share of
what is left of provincial resources to the C. P. R.
and the rest of them.

Maple Ridge Elections.
A telegram to the Dally News, yesterday      slaked thai  the municipal elections   held   at   Maple   Ridge on   Saturday resulted In the election of Reeve
Carlton, and  Trustees Walden,  D:   i
:;:: I   Wilson.
A  complaint signed by an old  resi-
dent   of   Dewdney, has  reached    this i
office, with  the  request   that  extracts
therefrom   might   be   published.    The;
principal  ground of complain!  is tin
ridiculous     School     Act,     which     has
caused so much dissatisfaction.    As a
case In point, the correspondent mentions  thai ai   the    recent    municipal
election, while the whole council was
re-elected by acclamation, there wen
-even nominations for i   hool
two of whom i.ii..' we e to be elei     I

i.Hilling, but under the present admin
Istratlon, each district of the municipality wishes to he represented, and
consequently nominations pour in
i oiii all quarters,
Another just cause of complaint Is
the condition of the roads, it is pointed out that it is onlv possible to drive
west from Mission City for about four
and ;i half miles, as far as Silverdale.
and even in this shorl distance, one
pari of the road is considered dangerous, Eastward from Mission City, il
is possible to drive about two and a
half miles with comparative safety,
The correspondent adds In conclusion
thai there is a decided feeling agalnsl
whal he terms the llnwihornwai.o
Mciiriile-female government, and instances several old time McBrlde men
who have openly announced their Intention of voting for Jardine on Feb
2.and turning down the ridiculous aggregation now masquerading as a gov.

It was  discovered  yesterday  morn-
ing thai   the heavy  snow  had caused j
���i number of the roofs of the cattle
hi ds  al   the   exhibition   grounds   to
ci . . in.     The heavy rain on top of
the great   weight  of snow worked the |
trick, and the timbers started to give'
way.     Fourteen men  were secured  at
once an 1 *!: ��� work of saving the rest
of the buildings commenced, by means
ol  shovelling off the snow.
On sizing up the situation fully it
v.as found that the roofs of six of the
sheds had been completely destroyed. ;
These sheds were valued at $600 each ;
and the damage is estimated at about
$?,500. The weight of snow on ihe !
���Industrial building was tremendous,
and the efforts of the men were at
first directed towards relieving the
pressure there. City Foreman Fur-
ness did yeoman service and seemed
to he in half a dozen places at once.
His efforts resulted in the damage being much less than it would have
otherwise been. It Is hoped that the
rest of the buildings will be saved.
The work will be continued today.
and by tonight it is expected thai
everything   will   be  snug and   safe.

piles have given way to the great

Yesterday the Dauntless, true io
her name, nothing daunted by two ineffectual ai tern | Us to break through
the ice-bound Fraser, vanquished the
ice king and made its way out to salt
water. The trick was not so difficult
after all, and when once the right
combination was struck, things went
along smoothly and effectually. The
vessel made a start in good time yes-
terda} morning. Across the front of
thi    scow   which   Was   placed   ahead   of
the vessel, there was suspended a hea-
hei :   of  iron,  in 1 I  in  position  by
chain-     As soon as the iie had
���  m   denied   go   as  to   make  a   good
e  irt, the vesw i  forged ahead, breaking ih" Ice In fine style, its progress
l.eing '.saK lied i j a large crowd of Interested onlookers.    The toughest nu
the   DauntlesB   was   culled    upon    t-
crack was the Ice just at the head o
the  open   waler at   the   bend,  not   fa
from  the  Industrial  Cannery.     Then
the action of the water had piled up
ihe ice and it  had  frozen, layer after
layer until it was about three of four
fee!   thick.    The   Dauntless    handled
the proposition carefully, in order not
to have its propeller injured.    At last
the   barrier  gave   way,   and   the rest
cf tbe journey was an easy matter.
The  Robert   Dunsmuir    was    lying
i over by  the Industrial  Cannery, with
| a scow load  of coal for Gilley Bros,
j waiting   for  the   Dauntless   to   break
the ice and came in as soon as the
way   was   clear.     The   next  difficulty
was to clear away the ice at the east
' side of Gilley Bros.' wharf, so that the
; scow of coal could he berthed out of
i the way of the Moating ice, and in a
position suitable  for  unloading.    The
work took until away into the night.
I The hummocks of ice had to be bro-
i ken  loose  by means    of  pikes    and
I steered out of the way into clear wa-
i ter.     The ice was very thick and ob-
| stinate, but the   work   was  safely  ac-
i complished and the scow will be unloaded today.
The danger of a coal famine is now
a thing of the past, and the fact has
been fully demonstrated that if the
coal dealers hud looked upon the frost
situation a little more seriously, they
might, without very much trouble or
expense, have kept the river open
right along. With the assistance of
other bout owners, the task would
have been ridiculously simple. On
the first indication of frost, however,
the boats all ran to cover, expecting
the situation to be relieved in a very-
few days. But the frost came so hard
and kept at it so long, that, for the
first time In a quarter of a century,
the Royal City was cut off from cut-
side communication by water, The
difficulty will doubtless put people en
their guard another year, and ihe
trouble will not very likely occur
again.

Mr. Gifford i.-, kept so much In the

as a sort of stalking horsi��� by the
"push" which supports him, that it
hardly occurs to one to criticise him;
but since the question has been raised
il maj be well lo see how he compares with Mr. Howay as a person to
be entrusted with the representation
of this city in the legislature.
[f we leave Mr. Rainey out of the
discussion, it is simply because we are
following the lines of the contrast referred to, Indeed, we should prefer
to leave the personality of the candidates alone. There are occasions
when personal criticism is accessary���
there are men whoso personal character and record unfit them for public
office���but thai Is nol the case here;
all three candidates are men of good
character and standing, so far ns the
Daily News Is aware.
What may be called the purely personal point, therefore, may be dismissed at once; and it only remains to
poinl out under the head "personal,"
that Mr. Howay is much better equipped, as far as mental training and
native ability is concerned, to take
thai place In the House which the representative of an Important constlt-
itencj should lake, which, ii has been
demonstrated, Mr. Gifford. cannol take.

Being chairman of the Parks and Li-

has taken place in these two departments. The Library water pipes
froze up several days ago, and. but
for yesterday's thaw, that institution
would have had to be closed today.
The wreckage at the park caused the
aldermau to spend most of Sunday on

THE CURSE OF INDIA
CASTE.   WHICH    FIXES   THE    STATUS
OF  EVERY   HINDOO.
Ko Mini I nn Hi*.��. Prom lhe Claaa,
Himpit'r I iirlrnn. In Which lie
Was Horn���Xeillior Wealth \'or Snc-
<-e��i��   Afferti  tin-  (iisle  of   Any   One.
In the tixed scale of descent in India
some classes :ire merely inferior, while
some are "unclean" or "untouchable," [
but from  whatsoever class a man be
born  in he has no escape but death.
Children  horn  in  an  "unclean" caste
remain "unclean;" children horn in an i
inferior caste remain as  their fathers
were.    Nothing that  they  can  do can
in   the   slightest   degree   change  their
situation.   They were horn "unclean;" ',
their  ancestors  were  ������unclean;"  their
descendants will be ������unclean" till the
end of the chapter.
To give a few illustrations from j
many, a weaver Is less ������unclean" than
a carpenter, a carpenter is above a
house cleaner, a bouse cleaner Is above j
a street cleaner, and a slreet cleaner is
above a pnrlah or no caste man Every
trade or occupation has its exact place,
arbitrarily fixed, iu the scale of degradation.
Above all the nun that labor with
their hands in whatsoever way are
the tradesmen and shopkeepers, also
with subdivisions Into classes; above
the tradesmen is the useless and now
almost Idle warrior class; above the
warriors is the Brahman or priestly
class. :i'vl  with these grand divisions
the   Structure   of   the   system    is   complete.
Wealth or material situation or success has nothing 11 do with the caste of
any man. You may hire for your cook
or valet a Brahman of the purest strain
serene, who for weeks before you engaged him may have been on the verge
of starvation. The meager beggar to
whom you toss alms in the road may
he of a very high caste. The well fed
groom, resplendent in gorgeous livery,
flashing by on n carriage that covers
the beggar with dust, is very likely of
a caste a mile below the beggar. Time
no more than effort can break down
these walls of division, line of the
wealthiest and most distinguished families in Calcutta, the famous Tagore
family, lost caste about two centuries
ago. Members of this family have received honor from the government,
have conferred great benefits upon city
and country and have been noted for
their numerous charities and benefactions, One exerted himself all his life
to further native education, Another
helped to endow Calcutta university.
All are enormously rich, and all bear
enviable reputations for gooduess, honesty and philanthropy. Hut the wall of
caste has never fallen for them. They
are still hated and avoided by their
countrymen exactly as they were at
the beginning of their exclusion. In the
streets of Calcutta is many a ragged
artisan that would uot sit ou the same
bench with a Tagore or touch the end
of his robe.
Pain, suffering, penury, even death
itself, is nothing to the Hindoo coin-
pared with the loss of caste. Many a
Hindoo that hi the old days would
yield nothing to the most fiendish tortures quickly surrendered his secrets
when threatened with something that
would contaminate him���a piece of
cowskin, perhaps, or a glass of water
tliat had been touched by a pariah. In,
1 suppose, thousands of cases persons
that have hopelessly lost their caste
have abandoned their homes and wandered miserably along the roads uutil
death overtook them. Thousands of
others have thrown themselves into the
Ganges or deliberately starved.
TTin e Brahman girls who had been
degraded by a Mussulman went before
a judge io demand vengeance and
when ihe judge declined to interfere
killed themselves in the courtroom.
At a town called Buj Buj a wldo%v
lost caste by falling in love with a
man beneath her. As loss of caste by
one member of the family degrades
the others also, her eldest son immediately swallowed poison ami died,
and his remaining brethren fled the
country.
A husband shares n wife's degradation. A wife goes down the steps with
a husband. I'm- more than Ion years
a Brahman family of Santlpur has
been outcaste because one member fell
in love with the daughter of a shoe-
maker. Charles Edward Russell In

any Real Estate yet, or are you like many more, keeping your money
tied up in the banks at 3 per cent, allowing some other man to borrow money from them at 7 per cent and make 100 per cent out of the
money borrowed? This is done every day in the year. If you have
not tried it yet, do so now.   Don't hesitate longer.
Delay   May   Mean
simply the difference between living from hand to mouth and independence. READ   OUR   LIST.

���BR
WITHIN' RECENT YEARS many brands of Rolled Oats have I u Introduced
to the public notice, all attempting to emulate the popularity of 11. & K. ROLLED OATS. All have signally failed In their object owing to three distinct points
of difference  between B.  &  K.  ROLLED OATS and all oilier  Rolled Oats.
FIRST DISTINCTION
The finest white oats In the world are mown right here in Western Canada, By
their widespread distribution of Elevators and Mills throughout Western Canada from
Edmonton to the Pacific Coast, THE BRACKMAN-KER MILLING COMPANY annually secure the VERY PICK of these tines' white oats. Vi'-P. Y
... ���.j.v   ..... ���
SECOND DISTINCTION
THE 1'.   &  K. MILLING PROCESS is ENTIRELY distinct  and  SUPERIOR to any
ther process,
THIRD DISTINCTION
An I it is a urea* one. Owing to their unique system of mills, elevators and
depots all over West.in Canada, coupled with their system of DAILY DELIVERIES to the grocery --ore.-. li. & K. ROLLED OATS are FRESH and SWEET
every  May.   whereas  all other oats are often MAXY months old   before    they   reach
'be consumer.

FRAUDS IN OLD BOOKS.      '
Anclenl and linn- Volume* Boetorcd,
H��-st,��red   und   Imitated.
A   well   known   collector   acquired
what be took to be a book published
by Aldus iu the year 1489. He paid
$1,000 for it ami believed that it was
an original Alius, because the publis i
er's press mark, a dolphin colled round
an anchor, appeared upon it. When
the book was shown to an expert It
proved to he beyond a shadow
doubt a modern antique���that is to
say, it was simply n copy of the or;..-
inal work printed by nn Ingenious book
fakir. So clever was the Imitation
that only an expert could tell it from
the original and rare book. Scores of
persons during recent years have
bought facsimiles of rare works under
the impression that they were cettliu
the originals. Dickens' "Sunday Under   Three   Heads"   has   I n   faked
many times nnd sold as original to
collectors who no doubt treasure them
as rarities. Genuine copies of this
little book are worth a good sum. and
some unscrupulous dealers, taking advantage of the circumstances, have
had It reprinted and palm off the
copies on unsuspecting bibliomaniacs
for the genuine first edition.
Many men make a living by "doe
torlng" old and rare books for uu
scrupulous dealers. These men are
adepts In the art of book restoring and
are quite able to make good any part
ol' an Imperfect copy. For instance,
If a rare book has a leaf missing It Is
banded over to a restorer, who reprints tbp page with battered 'type.
the paper upon which it Is printed being afterward discolored with chemicals or tobacco water in nriler to give
lt the true antique hue.
The iirst. folio Shakespeare ls,"*of*
course, ot" great value, and lt is SHfe.
to say that every possible deception
has been practiced in fitting up copies
of this work for sale. At one time the
manufacture of first, folio Shakespeares
was quite a trade, a first folio having
several leaves missing had leaves Inserted from the second-folio, while in
one case the entire [day of "Cymbe-
Iine" was reprinted ami Inserted in a
first   folio.    Tl faked"   pages   were
so cleverly done that several experts
wen- at first unable to detect them
when turning over the pages of the
work in question, Rook restorers, as
a rule, are most ingenious artists, and
they can produce an imitation of a
page of a rare book which will deceive
; hundreds of collectors. One particular restorer has "doctored" more than
a thousand old books during the last
two years, producing pages In facsimile and supplying colophons or decorated capitals. There Is not a thing
' wanting to make a book complete that
this man cannot skillfully "fake."���
