TO MAYOR KfARY
Civic Employees Give Retiring Magistrate Tangible
Token of Respect.
snow PRospfRtnr
Mayor Keary was given a pleasant
surprise yesierday when a deputation
of the city hall employees waited on
him and presented bim with an illuminated address, a magnificent cabinet of silverware, a cut-glass decantei
with a half-dozen glasses, and a cut-
glass and silver tern pot, The cabi-
ui i bears the simple inscription, "To
\v. li. Keary. lroin the employees ol
tbe City 1-Jall."
Presented Address.
Mr, Keary was taken completely by
surprise but managed to make a very-
neat and appropriate speech In reply
to the address. It could be seen
that he was deeply touched by the
action of the mea with whom he has
been connet ted so long.
The address,    which    was  read  by
City Treasurer    Latham,  was as follows:
"lo llis Worship W.H. Keary. Mayor;
"The employees ol the City oi New
Westminster respectively desire to
record their grateful acknowledgement of the kindness and consideration shown io them by you during the
nineteen years oi your membership,
lit years as Mayor Of tlle City
Council. Tbat higher honors and
���greater opportunities of usefulness
may await you in tlie future is the
earnest wish of each oi the undersigned."
Many Signatures.
This address was signed by nearly
all the employees of the City Halt,
including the firemen and the members of the police force Among
those present when the address was
read were II. P. Latham. P. B, Bowler. S. J. Pearce, F. Broad, J. H. Wat-
- m, T. Furniss. W. Stott, D. G. McKenzie, E. Hoult. F. Sangster, S.
Brown, Miss Maizle Robertson and
Miss Iola Fisher.
NEW DRAW IN USE
ON LULU ISLAND BKIDGE
Swing  Span   Opened  for    First  Time
Yesterday���Not Yet Quite Complete.
The draw span in the new Lulu island biidge was opened yesterday tor
the first time to allow some vessels
to pass up the river. The first boat
to pass through the new bridge was
the tug Belle, followed shortly afterwards by the new steamer Paystreak,
which has recently been launched
from the ways of the Westminster
Marine Railway company.
The new draw opened and closed
without mishap, but it will need several more days work put on it before
it is ready for regular use.
The steamer Paystreak was towed
up to the wharves of the Schaake Machine Works, where her machinery
will be placed, lt Is the Intention of
the Royal City Navigation company
to put the new boat on the run between here and Chiiliwack in place
of the Strathcona, whicli has been
found to be injured beyond the possibility of repair.
STORK VICTOR IN SUIT
OVER  CRUEL  LANDLORDS
Chicago, Dec. 30.���The stork has
won a suit against landlords. They
can no longer bar tenants with Children.
The State law, which landlords and
their attorneys have laughed at, asserting that it was unconstitutional
aud class legislation to prohibit their
turning away tenants with children,
was upheld as constitutional today by
Municipal Judge Himes.
Judge Himes' opinion declared that
children have as much right to protection us the game of the state, and
the game laws have been universally
upheld. Power placed in the hands
of landlords to drive large families to
hotels or dwelling houses, both of
which are beyond the purses of the
minority, tends to encourage race
suicide, he hinted.
ELEVEN SCHOONERS LOST
ON   NEWFOUNDLAND   COAST
St. John's, N. F., Dec. 30.���Eleven
Newfoundland schooners and their
crews of 60 men are believed to have
been lost in tbe Christmas blizzard,
while great destruction to property
throughout this island colony resulted. The storm, which reached its
height on Saturday, raged for six
days.
The town of Placenetnla was flooded for three days. The village of
Blackhead, three miles from this city,
was almost swept away.
This December has been the stormiest month the Newfoundland coast
has experienced in half a century,
and lt is estimated that it cost the
fisheries and general trade more than
$750,000.
Number of Marriages and
Births in City in 1909 Far
in Excess of 1908.
The vital stalistics for the J' ar
1909 show a large increase over I.. >t
\ear according to the figures at Uie
local registry oflice. The returns for
December aro of course not yet com-
plete but they wlll make no considerable difference in tht total.
The figures compared wiili those of
last year are: 1
1909.      iaos.
Marriages 207        136
Deaths   3��l       3lfi
Births Sim        3::0
When all the entries for lhe month
of December are included, they will
probably bring the marriage figures
up to 216, the deaths up to about 375
and  the births over 400.
The most marked increase propor-
tionately is in the number of tnar^
riages which are so far 71 greater
than last year. In addition to showing an increase in lhe population the
marriage figures are generally regarded as an almost certain index of
the prosperity of tbe disti ict, as in
hard times people show a tendency to
keep away from tie expensive amusement of matrimony.
The number of deaths this year only exceed those of last year by 46,
which is remarkably low considering
the increase in the population. The
number of births show a healthy increase. It is needless to say that
the figures this year are far in advance of any previously recorded for
other years.

CHARGES  PROMINENT CITIZENS
WITH   INCITING  THEFT
Toronto, Dec. 30.���Charged with
conspiracy io defraud the K VV. Gillette Company by disclosing the,_-
trade formulas, Allan Gibson and
Owen G. Morrison were placed on
trial yesterday before Judge Denton
and a .jury. Gibson was engineer at
the Gillette factory and Morrison was
a superintendent's confidential  clerk.
The charge in detail is that the two
men while in the company's employ
quietly gathered together important
secrets having to do with the firm's
machinery and methods for the manufacture of yeast, lye, and baking
powder, with the object of forming a
new company named the Canadian
Yeast Co., or the Coionial Manufacturing Co.
An interesting feature of the case
is that the accused named Alderman
Adams. Alderman Bredin and Mr. T.
C. Robinette, K.C., as the people who
were backing the proposed new company. Mr. Robinette is defending
the two prisoners.
Several witnesses, Including Detective Moffatt, testified to finding a bundle of drawings of machinery, eta,
in  Morrison's homo.
Win. Dobie, president of the Gillette Co., said that teh formula which
the accused are charged with appropriating was part of the company's
capital, and was entered in the books
at $60,000. The secrets. Mr. Dobie
said, were kept concealed, and other
employees were warned not to divulge tbem.

Sudbury, Ont., Dec. 30.���In the beat
of the local option campaign at Char
pleau, a charge of selling liquor without a license has been laid against

town, an ardent local optlonist and -
member of the board of license commissioners for the district of Sudbury.
The hearing of the charge, was to
have taken place yesterday, but was

of the crown, owing to an important
witness having been called out of
town. It is alleged by Ine private
prosecutor that Pellow had h**n hD��
ing in his store wines greatly ta �����

A capped horsi will not only do a greater amount of
work than a hor e with its natural coat, but will at the same

E. A. Paige Managing  Director
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 31,  1909.
NINETEEN   HUNDRED   AND   NINE.
To the citizens of Xew Westminster we extend a cordial wish for a
Happy and Prosperous New Year.
Today closes a period that has heen
fraught with no slight consequence
to the City of New Westminstei-. The
peast year has been in very many
ways a very eventful year for us, and
it is one that will    mark a distinct! this kind, specially
of a line of grain elevators on the city
waterfront will be a portent of far
greater things, and their mere presence must raise the city to a high
importance. The recognition of New
Westminster as port of call by the
tramp steamers trading on the Pacific coast has also been one of the
events of the year, and the loading
and unloading of cargo by the steamer Lonsdale at the new wharf erected
by the Council, a short time ago, was
the lirst practical step toward such
recognition. It will probably not be
long before ocean going vessels will
be calling here once or more ln each
week.
The enjoyment by Ne<v Westminster of her rightful position aa a leading port on the Pacific coast has been
made possible by the deepening of
the Fiaser river channel by the Federal Government, which purchased
the Fruhling rirerlge, one of the most
effective among modern inventions of
for the purpose.
wliich the city and its citizens have
made such a gratifying advancement
and enjoyed so great a prosperity,
should have been darkened by the
shadow of sad misfortune. Three
serious accidents on the Great Northern Railway, one on the interurban
line of the B. C. Electric Company,

In municipal uiiuiis very much has
heen accomplished by Mayor Keary
and the City Council during the year.
The outstanding leuture in their long
list of good work is the provision oi
a program of etxensive improvement
works at a cost ol $398,000 tu a debenture issue for which sum the ratepayers gave their hearty assent in August. The tirst portion Of the Council's carefully devised scheme, namely, the Improvement of Columbia

that the   connection   may  also    be   mentioned
i the wonderful activity in real estate
transactions that has characterized
'. the past year. A far larger amount
of real estate has changed hands
I during Km.) than any similar anterior
period, whilst prices have advanced
steadily to quite a high figure. The
proposed entrance into the city of the
Grand Trunk Pacific and the Canadian Northern railways, and the likelihood of either or both having terminals in this city has been a material factor in the real estate movement; whilst the construction of the
Chiiliwack line of the B. C. Electric
Hail way and the location here of the
terminal of this and other important
ear line connections, together with
the location of several important industrial undertakings in our midst,
have exercised considerable effect
upon tlie minds of investors and
others.

to the contest which ensued in con-

Cedar Cliff, N. .!., Dec. 30.���The sermon preached Sunday night by the
Hev. John Hamilton Titnbrell, in M.
E. Church, entitled, "Can Jeffries
Come Back?" has caused much lively
discussion. The preacher took his text
from the Book of Judges, and after
describing as pat Iniii- and humiliating the downfall of Samson, he said,
it pointed a moral to tlie case of Jeffries.
"Can the old time champion come
back?" the preacher asked, and then
he   said:
"What is the point in ihis case? i
Jeffries won the belt and much lucre I
and then stepped out of the rin.. to
have a good time and enjoy himself.
And for five years, like Samson with
his head in the lap of Delilah, Jeffries
lias slept. Jeffries has slept with his
head in the lap of a luxurious and
bibulous life.
"While he lias slept a big, black
gorilla has conn.' into the ring, and
has put the world of sport in nbout
the same condition that ancient Is-
real was in when Goliath of Gath
was swaggering aboul and bragging
what he could do. iii the presence of
ihe crowd thai was sore afraid to
tackle him:
������.\ml the pugilistic world is looking
the world over to fird soma champion
who caii stand up to the gorilla and
down him, and take the belt, wliich
means about the same thing to these
modern heathen as the wreath of laurel meant to the ancient heathen in
the Corinthian games. And with desperation in their glance they turn to
Jeffries with this question, which
means far more than a laurel wreat
to them.���"Can Jeffries come back?"
Seattle, Dec. 30.���"All Jeffries
thinks of is whipping Jack Johnson.
He talks of It hi the day and thinks
of lt in his sleep," says Dr, B. F. Holler of Seattle, who is a member of the
Gotch-Jeffrles troupe that is touring
the east making one-night stands.
Roller declares the public has no idea
of what splendid condition the undefeated heavyweight is in. The champion plays handball for hours lit a
time and he is training hard in private, says the Seattle wrestler.
"I box with him every day," Roller's letter goes on, "and lie wrestles
with Frank Gotch, champion heavyweight wrestler of the world. The
fight fans never need worry that Jef
fries will not get back into condition.
Gotch aud 1 have not been out of
training for seven years, yet Jeffries
can get the wind of either us playing handball. The big boilermaker l��
leading a quiet life and paying all his
attention to getting himself in shape
to lay low the laurels won by Johnson during his (Jeffries') absence
from the squared arena. Jeffries' wind
ls in fine shape and it will be as good
the day ho goes after Johnson as it
was when he left the ring after he
had put Jack Monroe, the minor, to
the floor for the count In less than
two minutes of fighting."
Roller says he ls    learning    a lot
l about the garna. of fisticuffs from Jeffries and he expects to take a whirl
| at the boxing game within  the next
. year or so. Roller weighs 2uo pounds
' in condition. Roller declares that his
j bankroll will go on Jeffries when he
I mixes with the smoke and he advises
his friends In the northwest to back
the retired champion.

street police station in the suburbs
received a hurry cail from farmers
near the Hill farm for help. A wounded buffalo bull had charged both Hill
and Schiffmann, and they were at
tliat time marooned in tree top. The
prairie was covered with drifts of
snow, and prevented even a dignified
flight before the beasts.
"We   never   got   out  of   snow   less
than waist    deep."   says Schiffmann.
"We finally found the herd in a bottom in some    bush.      They    plunged
through the snow upon our approach,
but we finally got them within range
and let them have it. Bullets seemed
to  have  no more effect    upon   them
than peas.      One bull started out after us and then crashed through the
ice ov.u   the creek when only a few

dropped his rifle, managed to escape
the    sharp    horns of    the    bull and
joined me 'n safety in tli'   tree top.

London, Dec. 30.���Talking over the
telephone from London to Paris
seems sufficiently wonderful, but
shall we ever be able to see people
in Paris While sitting comfortably in
our homes or business houses in London? Tills point is raised by tho recent experiments of Heir Kuhmer,
who has succeeded in transmitting
likenesses of inanimate objects over
a telegraph line,
'i'he problem has been attempted
by other scientists besides Rubiner,
with more or less succc ss. among
them being an Italian electrical engineer named Sylvelli, and two
Frenchmen, Rignoux and Fournier.
These inventors have all used means
similar to Hon- Riilimer, using the element selenium In their apparatus,
which varies in iis power of resisting
an electric current according to the
amount of light which falls upon it.
Different parts of the image Of a person reflected on the selenium would
be. of course, of different brightness,
and each part would regulate the re-
sistlve power of the selenium cells.

mer renders it possible to merely see
simple patterns at a distance, and ho
lias actually demonstrated that it is
possible to see such patterns by
means of telegraphy. His experiments
show that with a larger apparatus the
process of television could be solved
and the head and shoulders of a human being could be seen over a distance. This would mean that a man
wishing to casli a London cheque at
a Paris liouse could be se enin London over the telegraph wires by his
English agents and identified.
The apparatus consists of a screen
divided up into small sections���10,-
000 in a "life-size" apparatus���upon
which tlie image to be seen at the
other end of the line is projected by
means of a special form of a camera.
Each small section of the screen is
provided with a selenium cell that is
sensitive to light, and regulates an
electric urrent transmitted t'Trough
the wires. These electric currents are
.made to regulate the light falling on
corresponding sections of a similar
screen at the end of the line Whereby the image is reconstituted.
TELLS THE ST8!.r
OF HIS OWN DEATH
Amateur   Photographer  Pour.-   Deadly
Poison   by  Mistake,   Into   His
Glass of Ale.
Portsmouth,   Dec.     30.���A    tragic
story of an amateur photographer's
death by misadventure in Ids darkroom was told at an Inquest here recently.
The facts are few, but by their
brevity acquire a more dramatic character. Edwin J T. Webb was a
well known solicitor in Portmouth,
and one of his favorite hobbies was
amateur photography. He had fitted
up a darkroom in tlie cellar of his
house, and went down there to develop some plates. He opened a
bottle of beer in the cellar and poured
out a glass to drink while at work.
Becoming absorbed in his task he
mistook the glass and put into it
some cyanide of potassium. For a
time he went on working, ignorant of
his mistake. Then he remembered
the beer and drank some of it.
Instantly he realized the terrible
error he had made and, while life was
still his, snatched up a scrap of photographic paper and on it scribbed a
message to his wife. It was read at
the inquest and ran as follows:
"In semi-darkness have made awful
mistake,
"Must have poured cyanide into ale.
"Only a few seconds to live.
"Cannot call.
"God help you my pet.
"Brain reels.
"Tell "
The writing toward the end of the
message was almost undecipherable.
After writing this hurried message
Mr. Webb apparently trW to crawl
upstairs, but he fell dead at the foot
of the stairs, where, later, his wife
found him.
The medical evidence went to show
that after taking the poison, Mr.
Webb would lose the power of locomotion and would not be able to call
out, though he would live loag enough
to be able to write the note found.

Scotch  Whisky
The Maturing Process.
Everyone knows that whisky, no matter
how good, no matter how carefully distilled,
must possess age in order to be palatable.
An unmatured whisky, even though distilled from the very hest barley, is harsh to the
.taste���bites the tongue.
It is not, however, so generally known that
in order to properly mature Scotch Whisky, it
should be aged in Sherry wood.
Distilled in the Highlands of Scotland, (rom
pure, malted barley, Watson's Whisky is stored
lor years in Sherry Casks���and the capacity of
our warehouses is such that we never need to
withdraw any for shipment until we are quite
���ure it is matured to that degree of "mellowness" for which our brand ia famed.
