Liverpool To  Be Abandoned  In  Favor of  Southampton
After June 6���Greyhounds Will Call at Plymouth
And Cherbourg.
Liverpool, Jan. 7.���The White Star
Line tonight issued an official state-
men to the effect that it had decided
to transfer its service from Liverpool
to Southampton, beginning June 6, involved In the change are the Oceanic,
Majestic and Teutonic.
West hound the .steamships will call
at Cherbourg and proceed to Queens-
town, where, in order to carry out the
company's obligations to the government, they will embark mails, as well
as passengers, sailing withoul any delay for Xew York. Eastbound they
will call at Plymouth and theuce go
to Cherbourg, ending the trip al South
The leason for ibis step is to meet
the growing demand of travellers for
facilities enabling them to embark or
disembark at a continental or British
port and obviating the necessity of
crossing the channel.
While the announcement concerns
only the vessels named it causes much
chagrin, especially as Liverpool is now
spending $20,1100,000 on a dock to accommodate the latest types of transatlantic greyhounds. Competition for
the first class passenger business is
becoming keener each year and the
German companies, recognizing this,
have been calling at both a French and
a British  port, and  it is to meet this
competition thai the White Slar Line's

Changes in Councd.

Howay and Davies. No business of
Importance was done at the meeting.
with the exception of a motion that
the usual rebate be granted to certain
industries, which was unanimously
carried. The members of the 1907
council met last evening in committee,
but the proceedings were mostly of a
routine nature.
According to his organ, the Premier devoted
one hour and ten minutes of labored explanations to
offset a little "slush," which does not seem to say
much for the political judgment of the said Premier.
Smarting under the attacks made on its blundering school act, the government takes advantage of
the teachers' convention and sends a school inspector
here to defend the act.   Great dodge, isn't it?

Nearly 200 Hindus who were employed on railway construction for the G.
N.R., near Mad Bay, struck work yesterday morning, and left their camp
and returned to New Westminster,
walking the whole distance with heavj
pasks on their backs. The Hindus
reached New Westminster about live
o'clock last evening, and were directed
to the police station, where a larg<
number of them were given quarters
foi the night. About forty of them
sp< :.' thi night in the cells, and in
the enclosed exercise court, sleeping on
���heir own blankets and whiling awaj
be time bj  talking and smoking.
The cause of the trouble between tin
men and their employer was explained
to a News reporter by Mahomed Khan,
an intelligent Hindu who speaks very
good English. It appears thai thi
man who employed them and whose
name they do not appear to know, has
lefused to pay the men any money for
the work they have been doing f ir
the past five weeks, and that there is
also considerable difference of opinion
as to the rate at which the men should
be paid. The Hindus were hired to
go out and work by contract, but after
some time they discovered that the
conditions governing them were such
that   it   was   impossible   for   them  to
make more than a few cents a day,
and they asked to be allowed to work
by day labor instead. This the contractor refused to allow, and the dissatisfaction resulting culminated in
yesterdaj 's Btrike.
Mahomet Khan explained that the
Hindus had slashed nine acres of Umber, and graded 1,200 feet of road, and
that no payment for this work was
forthcoming. The men were obliged
io buy their own wheel barrows, shovels and other tools, but the contractor
refused to allow the men to remove
this,, from the camp when they went
on   strike  jester lay The    Hindus,
however, brought all their personal belongings along with them. Mr. Khan
complained thai their employer refused to allow them to remain in the
camp until the weather became a little
milder, and insisted on their leaving
the vicinity, telling them to get off the
company's lands as soon as possible.
Asked what the men would do, Mr.
Khan sail that they were not destitute, and everyone of them had money.
Some had ��5, and some had ��10.
This money would be pooled, and they
would rent a large house in the city,
and go out there to live until they got
work again. A number of the other
strikers had gone to Millside while
some of them were going to Vancouver.

Portland, Jan. 7.���The railroad battle, waged for the last year for the possession of the north mink of the Columbia river, the greatest warfare of
its kind ever known in the Pacific
Northwest, and one of the most memorable in railroad history, is ended.
The Harriman line, known as the Columbia River Railroad company, is
withdrawing its construction forces,
thereby confessing defeat. Within
another week the last camp will have
dismantled.    The victory is Hill's.

The   Way  the   Notorious  Jack  Graem*
Was Arrested.
"A man and a woman,*' said the
police chief, "occupied a compartment of a Pullman. In a desolats
place, the train speeding like light-
Ding along, the man said to the wc->
" 'Madam, I will ask J'OU to look
out of 1 he window a few minutes.
I nm going to make some changes
in my apparel.'
"'Certainly, sir,' said the woman
"Two or three minutes, filled
with odd, rustling noises, passed,
Then the man said :
"'Now, madam. I am finished.'
"She looked at him, and, beho'd,
he had transformed himself into a
dashing girl, heavily veiled, fu-li-
ionably dressed and with rich and
beautiful blond hair.
"Some moments later in her turn
the lady .-aid;
"'Now, sir. or madam, whichever
you are, I'll ask yon also to look out
of the window. I have some changes
to make in my own dress.'
"The other complied, and when
he was permitted to withdraw his
gaze from the passing landscape,
what was his surprise to find the
lady changed into a man. He gave
a loud laugh.
" 'Il   seems,' he said, 'that WO are
both fugitives; hence we should be
pals. I am n hank robber, What
are you ?'
"'I,' said the other. Mm Detective

A sleighing battle, in which none
were slain, was waged with reckless
animosity on Sixth street yesterday
afternoon. A number of boys around
sixleeen years of age got into a mixup
in some way or other and allowed
their angry passions to arise. They
doubled up their fists and sailed into
each others smelling apparatus and
windows. The lus! of battle was in
their veins and the more they fought,
the more they wanted to fight. Other
lads caught the contagion, and the
whole bunch steadily (ought their way
up the hill, shedding gore and bad language as they ran.
A peacemaker loomed in sight in the
person of Alderman .1. .1. Johnston
who undertook to load the pugulists to
kiss and make friends. The lads wore
not much in the humor tor kissing and
preferred kicking, but, the worthy Alderman's powers of persuasion and
paternal remonstrances eventually led

A paper called the Week, printed in
Victoria, says:
"The Xew Westminster News of Dec.
2Mb   is guilty  of "mixing   the   metaphors." This is  probably due to rea-
' ns  which  it   would  lie uncharitable
to criticise at Ihis lime, hut  one of the
slips is loo good io he entirely overlooked, The News says thai the Columbian is ihe pocket organ id'the lion.
R. McBrlde. By the same token it
would be Interesting to know who-e
nioui b organ the News is."
One of these days   when the Daily
News starts a competition department,
II   will offer a  prize  for the solution of
the question Is the above paragraph
more worthj of remark as a sample of
Ignorance or as a sample of Impudence? The point i- rather a line one.
'.. to mixed metaphors, does not the
poor Week know th it numerous things
i 'her than musical Instrument i are
called organs? and that there are musical Instruments called organs which
ate not mouth organs? The poor creature should not allow itself to be too
greatly hampere I by its traditions; It
should learn that the guttersnipe equip-
menl of ihe mouth organ and jews-
barp does not exhausl the catalogue,
In the meantime, we see no reason
to  refuse the  Information   which the
] :ior     creature     craves.      The      Dally
News is the organ, considered commercially, of the people ol' New Westminster; considered politically, of the
I.il.(Mais of New Westminster. Nor
do we ask the We, :, to exchange informal ion. We ; Iready know who
owns that paper: whose organ ii Is,
and several other details which it
might not, perhaps, thank us for printing.

The London Economist assert*
thai "the world's cereal harvest of
1906 cannot fail to prove one of the
greatest ever produced." The wheat
crop is above the average in the
north of France, but it has suffered
from drought in the south and west.
France will need to import very little if any wheat. Spain has reaped
a good harvest generally, while Germany has pood crops of barley and
oats a? well as of wheat and rye.
Austria-Hungary will produce a
much larger wheat crop this year
than last. In Hussia the winter
wheat crop has been officially reported to be a good one, while the
more important spring wheat crop
is poor in nil but a few provinces.
Roumania is now expected to produce a record wheat crop, and
Servia and Bulgaria have good
crops. The Canadian wheat harvest
will not prove very abundant.
India's wheat crop harvested Inst
spring was the greatest but one ever

While they  were detaching mosaics  inside   the   Cathedral  of   St
Mark in Venice the other day, snys i
the   Cleveland   Plain   Dealer,   the
workmen  found   imbedded in the
cement a rare coin of the time ol
the dope Enrico Dandolo, who died '
in 1205.   The supposition is that
the   coin   dropped   in   the  cement 1
from the clothing of the mason at I
work on the job centuries ago.    If
this  is true the  unfortunate man I
probably never knew what became j
of it.    lie may have supposed it was \
omitted from his pay envelope, o" I
that the chap on the job next to j
him   pinched   it   from   his   jacket
pocket when he was emptying his
dinner pail, or that Nicolo Gooza,
the wine vender at the far end of
tbe Bridge of Sighs, had worked the
change racket on him.   All of which
seems a pity.    And when we con-
eider how he may have gone home
and handed his salary to his wife,
how she looked it over and harshly
remarked   that   he  was  short   an
Enrico Dandolo, and then accused
him of leading a double life, why,
it all seems very painful and very
unjust.    But it's too late to do anything about it now���seven centurief

the deep hue of her hair changing to

The peopleing of the American West produced in one decade such
cities as Milwaukee, Chicago, Duluth, Seattle. Large fortunes were made
by those shrewd enough to forsee the marvelous growth of these places.
These men were not wealthy, but had a few dollars to spare, were able
to size up the situation quickly, and were prompt to act.
THE TIME HAS COME for New Westminster to forge ahead. As
the Province develops so will the City grow. It is essentially a city of
manufacturing sites, and the investment now of a few dollars will repay
a hundredfold.
Size up the situation, and buy now.

An  Honeat  Legislator  Who  Wat  Corrupted Against His Will.
Representative Jacob Deidler of
Ohio has a farmer constituent who
was elected to the Ohio legislature.
He is a fine, honest old chap, with
strict ideas as to right and wrong.
During the session a bill of great
interest to certain corporations came
up. There were active lobbies for
and against it.
One dav a lobbyist called on the
farmer and offered him a sum of
money to vote for the bill.
"Go away!" shouted the farmer.
"You cannot corrupt me. I'll vote
against the bill."
"But," replied the lobbyist, "if
you will investigate you will find

Senator   Hoar's   Marbleheader.
On one of Senator Hoar's annual
pilgrimages to Marbfehead with
Worcester friends lie expressed a
wish to met some "genuine" Marble-
headers. While driving down
Fronl Btreet Uncle Bill High was
espied, and Edward W. Dohcrty
thought no more genuine Marble-
header could be found.
Tho carriage came to a halt while
the two men were made acquainted.
After u few remarks about the
weather, fishing, etc., the senator,
with a twinkle in his eye, asked,
"Can we drive around to Gloucester
this way?" pointing to the east.
Uncle Bill saw the twinkle and
quickly answered, "Yes, if your
noises are webfooted and you'te
got strong faith in the Almighty."
A Good Deal of Meaning.
Senator Knox at a reception in
���Philadelphia said of a certain
"A good deal of meaning wa3
subtly compressed in u very few
words. It was like Ihe speech that
u young girl made to an aged millionaire.
"This aged man had proposed to
i' ��� ��� ��� ing girl and she hud accepted
, .'er.
"A few days before the wedding
the old gentleman, taking'the band
of his prospective bride, said with
tender earnestness:
" 'Hear, do you love me for what
I am, or for what T was?'
"'I love you, dear friend,' she replied, 'for what you will be.'"���

Conkling's  Recipe For Success.
When the late Senator Gorman
of Maryland first went to the senate Mr. Conkling nnd he happened
to be seated together upon a sofa
in the senate chamber while a well
known statesman of the period occupied tho floor. "Gorman," said
Conkling, ''you have conn! here in
good season. Let me give you a
sure recipe for success. Begin
every speech you make with the assertion that you, and you alone, are
the purest man that ever lived and
end each with the declaration that
you arc the bravest." And when
Gorman asked Conkling why he
himself had not followed this r��-
icript Conkling answered, with a
���igh, "I learned it too late."���Reader.

Too Literal.
Judge Kenesaw M. Landis of tho
United States district court of
northern Illinois has his share of
humor for which the family is
noted. Since his appointment to
the bench he 1ms not indulged in
this trait as he did when an attorney. One of his stories was told to
a select coterie of friends the day
of his appointment.   This is it:
"There was a state senator in Illinois whom every one in the lower
end of the siate familiarly addressed as Tom Merritt. He was noted
for his wit'and stammering. Ho
was invited over into Indiana to
make a speech for a Democratic
candidate for governor. Warming
up to his subject, the senator said:
'I've been t-t-told that the Re-republican candidate is a scho-scho-
seholar, that he has tr-tr-translated
Homer's "Iliad." Wha-wha-what
good is that to us? Every Democrat reads Homer in the or-or-orig-
"The best part of the joke is, ns
Merritt afterward said in telling tho
incident, thai nobody in the audience even smiled at the statement.
Merritt went back to Illinois tho
next day."���American Spectator.

had a visit lie- other day from a
crank with a "message from God,"
His experience I'einin.led n Boston
lawyer of an incident in Fall River
years ago, when a clergyman named
Alley was on trial for the murder of
a parishioner. "He was defended
successfully," said the lawyer, "by
the late Jeremiah Mason, considered
by all of us to have been the greatest American pleader who ever
faced a jury. Mr. Mason bad finished his examination and was to make,
his pica in the morning, He was
about lo re1 ire. when a crank was
ushered in. '1 have a message from
the Angel Gabriel declaring that
Brother Alley is not guilty of this
awful crime, and'���bu-t he got no
further. Mason beamed upon him
und said: \Mv dear sir, this is most
timely. Go at once to Gabriel and
have a subpoena served upon him directing bis appearance in court in
tho morning.' The crank departed
in a trance, and the door closed before ho recovered." r 8

There does not seem to lie much
doubt that the first bnthlng machine
was seen at Margate and that It was
tbe Invention of a worthy (maker
named Beale, who placed his hopeful
invention on the Margate bench In
1760. "The public ure obliged to Benjamin Hi-ale. one of tbe people culled
Quakers, for the Invention," writes ti.i
author of "A Short description of tbe
Isle of Thanel," published in 1706.
. But it was the old story, the public be
came grateful after the inventor bad
TO   ORDER   been   ruined   by   his  enterprise,   His
  successors   had   reaped   the   harvest.
Old Benjamin Beale's widow could remember In her last days the first fain- I
ily that ever resorted to Margate for 1
the purpose of bathing being carried;
into tbe sea In a covered cart.  In 1803 [
Beale'S  machines were one of tbe institutions of Margnte.   it  was alarmingly claimed for them that "they may
bo driven to any depth Into the sea by
careful guides."���T, P.'s London Week-
