BALFOUR PLEADS FOR   I     NewWestminster
ORGANIZED HARMONY i Co-Operative Association
Former premier Taking Active Part in Endeavor to
Suppress Industrial Strife.
London, Dec ..'���Former Premier
Arthur J, Balfou has started a vigor-
Otis campaign throughout Great Britain for capital tnd labor" combinations in many Industries, taking as his
text Sir Christopher Furness' monster
co-operative shipbuilding scheme. Balfour is conducting his movement us
president of the Labor Co-Operative
Association, an organization of several
years .-.landing into which, however,
new life has been injected by the big
Bhlp-building experiment,
The audiences, which the Cornier
premier has been addressing in the
leading English cities, are perhaps the
most curiously mixed of any ever
gathered in the Cnlte'd Kingdom. Peers
and working men. Socialists, Liberals
and Conservatives, captains of industry
and Unionists, all seem equally enthusiastic over the plan, which, ii is
hoped, will revolutionize the relations
between capital and labor and put au
end to Industrial strife by placing the
tw.i im..;-.. ts on an equal footiug and
hem worl: toward a common
end.
Thi ex-prime minister makes it clear,
however, that it is not Socialism which
he Is advocating. He urged Individual
nather than committee control of 'both
commercial and industrial enterprise..
declaring his belief that the higher the
degree oi individual efficiency among
members of any form of managing
board, the less likely would they be to
work harmoniously tog. ther.
"Our association's ideal, however,"
he explained In his Lust speech, "is a
complete co-partnership, I mean that
those who carry on any work should be
associated in all that the work brings
in.
"Everything thai softens or obliterates the division between employer and
employed is a step in the right direction. The more we encourage mutual
knowledge of each others affairs, the
more we can bring the two claase to-
" 'ii' the more we can gel the workmen to undi rstand the difficulties of
thi   employer, n   i-   v .��� are likely
to produci   :i  class of wrokmen fit to
di .il with all '.".  itions, Industrial, political or social,   Thi   .   suli we shall
b)   co-pai hip aud   I doubt. If
we shall ������ ���*   il in any oilier way.
"1 think that the plans we a Ivw i
can be mosl  effii Ii ntly carried out In

A CIVIC   INCINERATOR.
One of the matters with which the
incoming city council will be called
upon to deal is the necessity of an
improvement in the method of dealing
with refuse. The day has gone by
when the dumping of material on tide
waste   land   is   sufficient

permissible. The existing^
in Westminster are unsatisfactory, as
the practice of dumping garbage on
land ultimately to be used for 'building may lead to epidemics. In cities
where it has been necessary to excavate for foundations, experiments
show the subsoil under these circumstances teeming with myriad organisms of disease. Thou again streets
which have been constructed, as
Front Brteet in part has, by filling of
this kind, mean endless trouble to the
roadbuilders in the future, lacking as
they do, any solid matter upon which
the grading may te established.
The problem of the economic disposition of waste and garbage is a most
Important one, iu fact as important as
iii.. disposal of the liquid sewerage
out both call for special and separate
.systems of treatment The purification of the sewerage is not so pressing,
as the enormous volume of the Fraser river waters prevents any serious
nuisance from this source, Ibut this will
undoubtedly have to be undertaken in
the future.
A small destructor -plant has been
found the most satisfactory method
of dealing with the problem of garbage, one of the most important of
civic matters. It deals economically,
effectively, and iu an inexpensive
manner with ri_.fu.-e of all kinds, and
in calculating th>- expense it is necessary to remember that the present
method of scavenging costs a fraction
aer ton while the expense of burning
it, destroying infection and objectionable matter, is not large after the initial expenditure has been met, prob-
aibly being mis. i . means of a bond
Issue rather than by a call en the
general municipal revenue.

The facl  that Vancouver Is asking

proaching municipal election for a se-j
cond destructor pointa to the fact that!
its usefulness In* : ��en proved close

It is only    within   the   last    few]

consideration    In    Canadian     cities,
whilst  in  Greai   Britain  and  on  the

Florence Roberts.
When it Is said thai Florence Roberts, who has played a remarkably
varied line of parts ���with always superior artistry, has won the surpassing success of her career in her new
play "The House of Bondage," there
remains no room for pessimism regarding the result of her engagement
at the opera house tonight.
It is common talk in theatrical circles that Mi.--:. Roberts has in ' Tiie
House of Bondage" the dramatic
"find" of the season. The work is by-
Seymour Obermer, a brilliant English
dramatist, who is said not only to
have evolved a strikingly original
theme, but also to have clothed it in
remarkably beautiful language.
Miss Roberts in "The House of
Ikiudage" has a role in which she is
seen at her best, and the Roberts best
is a dramatic value to conjure with.
,Iohn Cort has given the star a strong
support, among the players appearing
the well-known names of Arthur Forrest, Thurlow Borgen, Kent Bosworth.
Harry Glbbs, Ann Warrington and
Mary Bert rand.

Temperance Rfyrm at Flood
Tide in Austrian Commonwealth.
London, Luc. __ 9.���The -\dbourne
correspondent of the London C.j-oude
writes that temperance reforn in
Australia is at flood tide. The &mth
Australian legislative assembly ias
just accepted a most drastic licensed
victuallers' bill.
Some idea of the changes which the
measure legislates may be gathered
from the following facts: It closes ail
hotels on parliamentary election days,
federal or .state, Christmas Day and
Good Friday; lenders illegal that
���single women should hold licenses unless they at present do so; abolishes
duplicate barrooms unless, special permission is given by the magistrates;
requires travelers to go a journey of
ten miles from their homes before
they become bona fide travelers, and
tightens the provisions of the existing
law iu respect of the closing of ih"
(bars at 11 pm.
If the bill passes the legislative
council, South Australia will have in
operation the most advanced liquor
law in the whole Commonwealth.

'Tho Great Divide," presented at
the opera house yesterday evening, is
a drama distinctly unusual in its conception and daring in its originality.
Dealing as it does with tbe gradual
transfiguration of suddenly .aroused
bestial passion on the part of a hulking -drunken brut" for a neurotie female of refinement to the final rather
sudden realization of genuine love and
appreciation of the hero by his hysterical wife, the play affords a convenient vehicle for tbe talent of so lachrymose an actress as Miss rytabel
'Brownell, who, in the part of Ruth
Jordan, the heroine, sheds copioui and
all too frequent ears from tlie beginning of Act I until the last curtain
call. Miss Brownell's histrionic vorth
as an emotional actress is apt o be
misinterpreted by captious critics who
fall to recognize talent in a woman's
ability to shed pearly tears for
three hours withoui once having recourse to woman'.- ever-ready refuge,
the handkerchief.
The villain-hero, Stephen i bent,
(Edwin Mordant,) made a bettei Impression on the audience than li.- co-
star. His Hues were not so dlffic ill
of Interpretation, although even he
was called upon to use his coat sleeve
as an eye pad on a few occasions vhen
the dromant love in his wife's leart
/refused to be kindled into flame Of
the other members of the cast, Miss
Delia Knight, as Polly Jordan, the
bright and cheery readjuster of uari-
tal troubles, stood out most promin-
ently.
The play, although Interesting from
beginning to end, is altogether to. do*
lorific i" arouse enthusiasm In a ocal
audience.
