locket, engraved with a suitable inscription. The presentation was made
by City Treasurer Latham, who has
been in the city hall with Mr, McQuarrie for over fifteen years. Mr.

certainly cause around the civic
buildings.

Ottawa, Jan. 11.���The sudden Hints:, of Hon. L, P. Brodeur, who is lying in a serious condition at his home
on Daly avenue, has changed the
plans concerning the introduction of
the naval bill, over which there is
great interest. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
will now Introduce the bill tomorrow
afternoon In the place of Mr. Brodeur,
and there is every possibility of an
extended debate on the first reading,
'i nere is nothing in the i uies of the
house to prevent a debate on the first
reading of a government bul, and It
nas been allowed in extraordinary
cases like the autonomy bill of "1905,
when Liberal supporters like Hugh
Guthrie and others voiced their feelings to receive its first, reading wit Ileal debate.
There is no gainsaying tiie fact that
the Introduction of the naval bill is
awaited with keen interest here. The
corridors of the house tonight are
thronged with members, and the premier will in all probability have i
full audience when he rises tomorrow
to introduce the legisla'.oiu. There
is one thing sure, and that is if the
prime minister does no. content himself with a mere explanation of tbe
measure there will be trouble from
the opposition side, and any attempt
to stay the debate is liable in the
present strained tension of party
feeling, to result in some unusual
scenes.
A late enquiry at the residence of
Mr. Brodeur tonight elicited the information that the minister of marine
was suffering from hemorrhage of the
bowels, He was, however, resting
easily.

Calgary, Jan. 11.���While Ihe American government, when throwing
large reservations open for free grant
entry usually arranges for a date in
the summer or early tall, the Dominion government lias taken the present week as the most suitable time
for throwing open twenty-one townships of free grant land in the southeastern section of Alberta. Tnis action upon the part of the government
Is especially beneficial to the district
and shows incoming Americans that
winter conditions in southern Alberta
are much more advantageous than In
the States from which they came.
Hundreds of Americans who admit
that such a thing is impossible in
their state, and who, before coming
here, believed it Impossible In southern Alberta at this season, remained
in line all day and night.
Over u thousand men and women
lined up around an entire city block,
some commencing their long wait on
Thursday. This rush, while the largest in the history of Lethbrldge of-
flce, was also the most orderly.
This is practically the last of the
government's large reservations in
southern A'berta and very shortly
homestead rushes as recored above
will become a matter of history only

heads the list of personal tax assessments, made public In New York today. She is Mrs. Emma B. Kennedy,
widow of John S. Kennedy, who left
$26,000,000 to charity when he died
recently. Andrew Carnegie, who was
at the head of the list last year, tied
this year for second place with Mrs.
Russell Sage at $6,000,000.
John D. Rockefeller comes third
with $2,500,000 and fourth place is
held by Florence Anslnck and Jessie
McLeod, each assessed for $1,000,000.
Wm. K. Vanderbilt is listed for a similar sum, and Wm. K. Vanderbilt, Jr.,
for half that amount. Col. John Jacob Astor and J. P. Morgan must pay

$400,000. Charles M. Schwab is down
for $250,000, Jacob H. Schiff tor $200,-

assessed valuation of real estate is

last year, an increase of $267,009,518.
As the city's borrowing capacity is
ten per cent of the assessed valuation
of real estate, the debt margin will
be raised about $27,000,000. Last
year's increase on assessed valuation
was only about $10,000,000.

Winnipeg,, Jan. 11.���For some time
the   local  C. P.  U.  telegraph service
has been recruited somewhat extensively in Chicago and other American
cities. Four operators, named respectively    Kendricks,    Schauff,   Peterson
and  Eager, were, it is alleged, hired
i in   Chicago  at  the  beginning  of  October by Mr. Kane, a prominent official of the Pullman Car company, and
brother of a prominent Winnipeg official of the C. P. R. telegraphs.   Tney
were  hired, it is  alleged, on  understanding that after three months' services   they   were   to   receive   return
transportation free.    They were then
furnished   by   Kane   with   passes   to
Winnipeg  and  given  instructions   to
tell  Canadian officials, if questioned, | (nations
that they were seeking work, but they
were directed privately to report to
the  chief operator  in  Winnipeg and
also  to  make  an  application in  the
usual form.   This they did and were
immediately put to work.
Desiring to return the least capable of the quartette was released and
given transportation during Christmas week. The other trio gave the
usual fifteen days' notice recently to
expire January 20, but they were refused transportation, the chief operator claiming that the three months'
limit was for the company's option
and not for the operators, also that
he was short of men.
Local operators are very bitter.
They claim that aliens have been held
over tbe heads of local men as a
club, and that, as regards the shortage of men, that several local operators have been discharged within the
last month, besides the Americans released, and many operators have been
suspended for varying periods. They
also point out chat not only has the
alien labor law been broken, but that
the elaborate Instructions as to what
to say to customs or immigration officers denote that the telegraph officials have studied the law with a
view to evading it. Operators are
aware of the evasion of the law, but
loyalty to their brothers of the union
has prevented them from exposing
their alien brothers of the key to deportation. ���
It is understood Messrs. Kendricks,
Schauff and Peterson will today appeal to U. S. Consul-General Jones to
bring pressure on the company to
provide them with return transportation.
Seattle, Jan. 11.���Amalgamation of
the Dexter ilovton & Co., Washington Trust Company, and Scandinavian-American banks has been

If the deal goes through the consolidated corporation will have a capitalization closely approximating $2,-
500,000, with deposits running close
ot   $27,000,000.

Lodge room,'A. O. U. W. hall, Odd-
fellows' block, Clarkson street,
Lisbon, Jan. 11.���News has reached
here of the death in the Benedictine
convent on the isle of Wight of
Dowager Duchess Adelaide of Braganza, mother of the pretender to the
throne of Portugal. She came of the
princely Wurtemburg house fo Low-
enstein Werth-Rosenberg.
The dead princess was a link with
the past history of Portugal. Her
husband was the celebrated Dom Miguel, of Braganza, wo, born in 1S02,
was appointed regent of Portugal in
1S27. He took the opportunity to
seize the throne and for six years
ruled Portugal as a relentless autocrat. The Portuguese, encouraged
by England and France, finally ejected him in 1834.
During his reign the Princess Adelaide of Lowenstein-\\'ertheim-Rose:i-
berg was born, and she was married
to Dom Miguel In 1851. Her son. the
present pretender, was born two
.������ears later, Her grandson, Prince
.Miguel, of Braganza, was married last
September in Scotland to an American heiress, Miss Anita Stewart.
The Duchess Adelaide, joined the
Benedictine order in 1897, and was
known in the convent as Sister Maria
Benedlcta Adelaida. Only recently
the pope sent a gift to her royal highness and to the convent in tile shape
of the body of St. Victorlen, which
was found in the catacomb of St. Cal-
listo.
Scientists Aided By Photography Will

No such elaborate campaign for the
study of a comet as is now being organized for keeping watch ou the one
which Halley made famous by predicting its return was ever before undertaken. Professional stargazi-is

America to co-operate iu photographing the celestial visitor whose recent
reappearance has created a profound

The value of concerted action in
the matter will be better appreciated

previous visit in 1835 is remembered, lt then underwent astonishing
changes of form. Under iho iutlu-

difficulties he encountered In traversing that little-known region. Ha .-
ships endured were terrible, his oxo.1
succumbed, and some of the caravan
were reduced to living on leaves and
roots and even  boiled leather.
"I am glad to say,," he writes, "that

We spent five most terrible days in
bridging the Kolto river. My people
had no food, and some of the Mecca

starving. One old man died, and to

them.

\ GOOD ROADS.
- It is to be hoped that some really
effective advantage will result from
the good roads movement which has
already been set on foot in this part
of the province. Particularly do we
wish the promoters of this most excellent institution success iu tlieir effort to induce the Provincial government to spend some of the ample
proceeds of the Point Grey sale upon
the construction of a main road between Vancouver and tins city, via
Eburne, then returning by way of
Central Tark. We assume that the
proposed road would join t lie present
highway at the last named point.
There is certainly need of improved
moans of communication between
New Westminster and the districts
forming the Western peninsula of the
mainland, and for some time past we
have been endeavoring to urge the
importance of this upon the authorities. If such communication were effected by the construction of such a
road as that now suggested, which
would be virtually a circular link,
this would be a most advantageous
scheme.
It would bo a great achievement if
the Good Roads Association could
convince the ministers at Victoria
that road building is one of the prime
duties and responsibilities of a government. This is so because every
jitizen is entitled to have provided
for his use proper facilities for transportation. Failing this he cannot get
in his supplies, nor market his produce, nor distribute his commodities.
Had roads are a curse to a community; they are wasteful, expensive and
vexatious. Tbe provision of good main
roads is a duty that has been seriously neglected by the government in
the past; but we hope this association of ardent, spirits, that ate banded together for the admirable purpose
of securing good roads, will be able
to Impress upon the administration a
due Bense of its duty in this respect.
Argentina   and  Chili   Connected   By  a
New  Route.
London, Jan. 11.���Alter four years
of continuous labor, giving employment to 1500 men, the great tunnel
connecting Argenina and Chili has recently beeu completed.
Work went on during those four
years night and day, regardless of
Sundays or holidays, and the accomplishment is regarded as one of the
wonders of the age in engineering
work.
The tunnel is 3280 yards long, and
is about 11,000 feet above the sea.
The tunnel runs below the Pass of
Cumbre, beginning at Las Cuevas, in
Argentina, and ending at Caracoles,
in Chili.
The railway will at once be constructed, and it will probably be possible for a train to pass through the
tunnel next March. London contractors and engineers had charge of the
work.
Bartender fined.
A bar tender was fined in the police court yesterday morning for selling liquor without a bar tender's license. As this was the first case under the by-law which came into effect
on the first of the yea'-. ,the magistrate was disposed to be lenient, and
he let the man off with a fine of $5
and costs.

MORE  LIGHT.
The new  Light    Committee    of the
Council   will   earn    the   gratitude   of
many citizens if they will hasten completion of the arrang< ments for    increasing the output of current  from
the  power   house.    Al   almost   every
meeting of the Council    for months
past  application  tor light  have be n
refused, because the dynamos are already overloaded. There are many of
the newly made or extended streets,
too. that badly need lighting, and il
is fit importance  that  this  necessary
work  should   be  attend, d   to   without
delay. There are. for instance, at -the
extremities of Sixth Avenue and Columbia  Streets���to take  these  opposite ends of the city at  haphazard���
which are little less than death traps
in the murky darkness of the winter
nights such as we are now experiencing,  lu  these  same parts,  too,  there
are  many   private  residents anxious
to take a supply   of    light for their
houses.  Several  other  streets  in  the
City are in a very similar condition.
Brandon Man Killed.
Brandon, Jan. 11.���Ii. A. Wicker, a
young married man employed as a
bookkeeper in the mechanical department' of the C. P. II.. was killed this
morning in the yards here. While
walking down the track to his work
he stepped off the main line to get
out of the way of an outgoing train
and was struck by a yard engine coming on the track he had stepped on
to. killing him instantly.
Spectacular Fire in Winnipeg.
Winnipeg, Jan. 11.���A spectacular
fire broke out this morning in the
premises of the McDonald Mattress
company on Logan avenue. As the
building was full of highly inflammable material the flames quickly-
spread. Five young girls, employes of
the company, were rescued from tho
burning building by the fire escape.
The loss will be about $15,000, with
$5,000  insurance.
Interest In  Elections.
That the elections in the adjoining
municipalities of Surrey, Delta. Burnaby and Coquitlam are being keenly
contested is evidenced by the amount
of canvassing which Is being done in
this city among the property holders
in the district. The hottest fight for
rei ve will probably be in Surrey.
where II. T. Thrift and T. J. Sullivan
are in the field, a number of carriages have been secured for the purpose of conveying city voters to the
polling booth on Saturday, and there
is every prospect of a fairly large out-
of-Surrey vote being cast.
POOR   SATISFACTION.
The result of the Interview with
the Government by business men,
with a view to securing the insertion
of a clause in tiie Canadian Northern
railway agreement to prevent discrimination in freight rates, does not
appear to have been very encouraging. Strong proof of the need of this
protection was furnished by the deputation, but Messrs. Mackenzie &
Mann objected to the demands, and
all the satisfaction the visitors obtained was a meaningless promise
from Premier Mcliride that the government would endeavor to make the
agreement fair to both parties.
Returns From Portland.
Rev. IS. A Sand and Jens Gunder-
sen, who have been attending the annual meeting of the missions of the
Lutheran church in Portland, returned to the city yesterday. Tliey
report that one of the features of
tin1 meeting was tbe donation by
Oliver Anderson, of Portland, of ?00
acres of laud near Portland for the
purpose of establishing a home for
the aged. On Sunday. February 0,
Rev. Mr. Dahl, D. D.. of Minneapolis,
president of the United Norwegian
Lutheran Church of America, will
preach in the Lutheran church in this
city.
CRAZY

St. Louis,. Mo., Jan. 11.���Jesse M.
Tourville ,who recently wrote to the
common council of London regarding
a method to dispel the fogs hy psychic
waves, shot himself today at Seventh
and Olive streets, the busiest corner
in St. Louis. lie will probably die.
Tourville's claims of psychic power
were one of the causes of his estrangement from his young wife. It
was bis belief that unseen powers
worked to create strife in bis family.
MISCALCULATED   JUMP

IMPROPER BUILDINGS.
We have not any desire to be continually nagging at the Council, but
we feel it necessary to again urge upon that body the imminent need for
the adoption of means to prevent the
erection of improper buildings in the
city. We notice that attention has
been called to this same matter by
Fire Chief Watson who, in his report
to the Council on Monday, deplored
Ihe laxness of the building regulations which permitted the erection of
ramshackle structures. It is little
short of monstrous that in a city of
the size and importance of New Westminster the local authority Bhould
not possess proper control over the
plans and works of a, builder, and be
powerless to prevent the erection of
dangerous or improper structures.
The Council should at once frame the

the same   serious,   responsible   spirit

Addressing a meeting in London
today, Sir Hugh Bell, the Liberal
candidate, said hn was not prepared
to vote for anything in regard to Ireland which would lead to separation
but would give Ireland the largest

connection with the colonies dependent upon how taxation was imposed
upon them.

Fight Is On For
Control of Rates
(Continued from

is wanted.
Eq:    I   Rates  Solicit.
E. II. Heap-, of Vancouver, In supporting the action taken by his board
quoted lengthy statistics showing the
earning power and cost of maintenance of most of the railways on the
continent. He claimed that British Co-
lumbia had the advantages over the
prairie provinces of better water,
cheap fuel and longer life of the t\>-
ties. For these reasons and for others
he did not think that the C, N. R.
should be allowed to discriminate In
rates between the east and the west.
Buscombe's  Argument.
Mr. Buscomhe of Vancouver made
two points in clear style. He said In
a nutshell their argiiinenl was that a
ton of freight should be hauled looo
miles from the Pacific seaboard at no
greater cost than If it were shipped
from the east 1000 miles westward.
The second feature of his address
was that as a transcontinental line
the Canadian Northern must have a
western end. It must be built to complete the remainder of the system;
therefore the added expenditure over
the mountain section should be divided pro rata over the remainder of
the line.
Mr. Buscomhe sakl further that
rather than see the C. N. R. come in
without any regulation as to freight
rates he would prefer to see the government tell the people that it could
not see its way clear to sign the
agreement witli the railway company.
"Instead of having something like
800.000 people tributary to the coast
trade, as at present, wo should have
3.000,000," he remarked.
McKenzie & Mnnn Dissatisfied.
Messrs, McKenzie and Mann both
gave their views on the subject. They
thought that the suggestions of some
of the speakers were very unfair.
They  had  no idea  as  yet  bow  much
K.vMnm  Throwing   Sticks.
A "throwing stick," "throwing
board" or "spear thrower," as it Is
sometimes called, is a contrivance for
casting a javelin or harpoon, which Is
employed by various savage' races,
such as the Australians, some South
American tribes nnd especially by the
Eskimos, among whom Its use Is almost universal. Roughly speaking, It
Is a nnrrow grooved board a foot or so
long, with one end cut Into a handle
and the othe.r provided with a stud oi
spur for the butt of the spear to rest
against. Tt la used thus: Grasping the
handle ns ho would a sword, the man
fits the shaft of the ppeur into the
groove, with the butt resting against
the stud, stwulylng the spear with the
finger. Then, extending his arm nnd
bending back his hand till tbe spear
lies horizontal, he alms at the mark
and propels the weapon by a quick
forward Jerk of the stick. In this way
I have seen Eskimo boys casting their
forked Javeltna at wounded waterfowl

**!u their way," said the old fishw
man, "fishes are not such bad weathei
prophets. If a storm Is appronchlnt
the fish stop biting, and they won't bit*
���gain until tbe storm Is well over
They appear to know when a storm li

than that all the parties would have
a belter understanding of the issues.
But the members of tbe government did not say that they would or
would not meet, specific demands for
having incorporated in the contract
any   certain   provisions.
No Quarrel Wanted.
There was no doubt that, what British Columbia Was looking for was
the railway, not for any quarrel with
the company. The people wanted
some reasonable arrangement thai
would implement the arrival of the
railway.  lie did  not  apprehend  any
difficulty  In   settling  any    problem
thai might, arise, and lie expected
that there wouid be brought down In
the house a bill based on a fair and
reasonable contract. They must remember that the Canadian Northern
had not enjoyed the tremendous financial backing of the C. P. R. and
Grand Trunk Pacific. The government,
would lose no opportunity to take
fair and equitable means to take ro"-
trol Of the rates so thai merchants
would be protected. As far as was
equitable the government was prepared to go, ami he did not expect that
any problem would arise that could
noi  be s il red satisfactorily.

300 little children In Prance are, it
Is calculated, annually taken from
their houses by gypsies aud other nomads. Not u. few of these children
are deliberately sold by their Parents.
A case In point has just come to
the notice oi the police at Bellac, near
Limoges, where a laborer named Pi-1
naud, aged W2, sold his six-year-old
daughter lo a family Of gypsies for
fifty cents and a pitcher of wine.
The contract of sale was drawn up
In a wine shop. A revenue stamp
was affixed and il was signed by two
witnesses.
One of these���the woman who
keot the wine shop���was, however, apprehensive of the legal consi .indices
to herself. She Immediately informed ihe child's uncle, who, With
the police, started off in pursuit of
the gypsies and came up with them
the nexl morning. Replying to the
police, the child repeated the lesson
she had Been taught, said thai She
was travelling with her uncle and
aunt. but. on seeing her real uncle
ran to his arms and burst into tears.
The father has been sentenced to a
week's imprisonment.
