was in the city yesterday, and although his visit was purely on busl-
hi is still inclined to talk politics. Seen by a News reporter yesterday he said" referring to the government, " 1'hey have not made much
beadwaj with the clause about freight
rates which was to have been inserted in the Canadian Northern agreement. I; Is just as 1 said during my
campaign speeches: the railway
would noi be able to float lis bonds
if BUI b a clause were Inserted, and
consequently McKenzie & Mann will

Sir Charles said It was an unheard

that the only reason Premier McBride
did not relieve Hon. W. J. Bowser of
one of the two portfolios which he is
now holding was that lie had such an
unwleldj major.ty that be feaied dissension in the ranks.
Sir Charles does not seem to cherish any hard feedings as a result of

to as the late fracas.

At the board of trade meeting last
night many matters, trom the opinion of the British uatiou ou the name
of New Westminster to the efficacy
ol a certain brand Of rat virus, were
discussed at length.
President Hodgson and the secretary of the Soutu Vancouver board of
trade, and \>. J. McCallum, secretary
of the .Mulsqui-Sumas board, were
present al the meeting una invited
the members of thy local board to paj
them a visit whenever they coulu,
President iiodgsuu reported tluu tne
board ill South Vancouver, although
ouly formed a few weeks ago, already
had about 100 members. He remarked
that the interests of South Vancouver
might seem to tne casual observer to
be more at one witn those of Vancouver than with New Westminster,
but such was not the case. Both
places fronted ou the same gi eat
river aud improvements in the one
place could not but benefit, tiie other.
"We hope to see the day when there
will be an unbroken line oi docks
and wharves all the way between the
two cities,' announced the speaker. |
"If, at any time we can serve New
Westminster in auy way we shall be
glad to do it."
Three new members, Capt. T. II.
Worsuop, T. D. Sheriff and W. S.
Rose were elected members oi the
board.
Free Rides for Mail Men.
It was reported that the postmen
in the city did not have the privilege
oi ruing tree oi charge ou the street
cars, as is the case lu other cities.
Chairman Gotilet of tne transportation committee reported that this was
being  attended  to.
A     communication     was   received
from member-elect Crawley  ol  Chilliwack lo the effect that he was in accord   With   the   action   taken   by   the
New   Westminster  delegation  to  the
recent   conference   holu   in    Victoria
regarding the Insertion oi a freight
rate clause in the C.N.R. agreement.
The   board  Of   railway   commissioners wrote asking what the Great Northern   was   doing   towards   carrying
out   some   orders   of   tile   commission
respecting  the  service   on  some    oi
their lines. Secretary  Wade reported
that he had replied to the letter giving the commissioners the necessary
information.
Sunday Work at Post Office.
The Lord's Day alliance resolution,
favoring legislation for closing the
posloliices ou Sunday, again came
up lor discussion, iu spite of tne fact
that the city council last Monday
passed a resolution favoring the stand
taken by the Lord's Day alliance the
proposal encountered strenuous opposition in the board oi trade and it
was finally decided to rile the letter
and take no action.
The history of this postoffice affair is rather vacillating. The first intimation the board received that any
legislation for closing the postofflces
on Sunday came in a letter from Edmonton uuuut a. moutii ago, A'ue Edmonton board beEought the co-opera-
iion of the local board iu opposing
the measure aud at that time no one
even suggested that the actiou of the
fcJdmontou people be endorsed.
At the lasl meeting oi the city
council a resolution endorsing the attitude of the Lord's Day alliance was
passed, aud at the board of trade last
night a similar resolution was turned
down.
Provincial University Site.
A committee composed of Messrs.
Lee, Curtis and Smalt was appointed
to look after New Westminster's interests when the time came for
choosing a site for the provincial university.
Mr. Goldsmith, the man with the
non-dangerous blasting powder from
Edmonton, will be advised that he can
not have Tree Island for the manufacture of his dust.
Trouble for Delinquents.
A strong committee was appointed
to look after the collection of the
dues in arrears. They will draw sight
drafts on the delluuuents. Messrs.
Lusby, Vldal and Goulet were appointed auditors.
Beautifying of  Bridge  Approach.
A resolution was passed asking the
government to take some action In
beautifying the approaches to the
New Westminster bridge. The government will also be asked to take
Bteps to have the bridge properly
lighted and Frank McKenzie, M.L.A.
for Delta will be reminded or his election promise concerning  the  tolls.
In reference to the support asked
by the Matsuul-Suuias board In its
endeavors to have the V.V. and E.

that the railway company was applying to the Dominion government for

W. O. McQuarrie, speaking on the
subject, said: "We have always beeti

Victoria. Such an act wouia be Unpardonable and would put u;, in u
wrong light before the wiiole British
nation."
During the debate on the questio i
a resolution passed by the Native
Sons was handed to W. R. Gilley, who
however, did not read it as there was.
no danger of the old name being
abandoned. The following is the resolution: "Having learned through the

lt was decided to send a protest to
the board of trade against any change
ln the name of New Westminster, as
had been recently suggested. The
protest was sent to the meeting of the
board of trade by special messenger.
Parnell Keary, chairman of the
general committee, reported progress
made on the preparations for the
first annual ball, which will probably
rank as one of the events in the history of New Westminster society. A
tepee will be erected In the hall and
there will be a real live Indian and
his kloochman In their native costumes to help carry out the scheme ot
appropriate decoration. The hall will
be decorated with Indian work ot all
kinds.
Invitations have been sent to the
officers of the different posts of the
Native Sons, and lt Is likely thai
many of then will attenl.
a committee to look Into the matter
and report.
Working Men's Hours.
W. R. Gilley called the attention
of the board to the fact that there
was legislation before the parliament
ln Ottawa at present to have tike
hours for all workmen employed *Vf
the government set at eight hours.
The speaker did not think that it hurt
anyone to work nine or ten hour�� a
day, and remarked that if the hoars
were cut down, the loss suffered by
employer of labor, would, ln the long
run, have to be borne by the coa>
sunier. This was referred to the legislation committee.

Uplands, Cal., Jan. L'0.���lt is probable that a large number of Hindu laborers who are living in this vicinity
will take the hint today and leave
this part of the country following tbe
deportation of eight Asiatics last
night by a party of determined citizens.
Prepared for any emergency, a
crowd of white men paid a visit to
Ihe Hindu colony, loaded the eight
Hindus "not wanted" into a farm
wagon, drove them eight miles into
the country, and ordered them not to
return. Only one of them was handled roughly. He refused to get into
the wagon, and as a result he was
assisted by several of the angry citizens.
Since a fourteen-year-old boy was
captured here recently and mistreated
by several Hindus the feeling has
been intense against them. Twice before crowds of men were organized
to drive the foreigners from this vicinity, but the interference of Officers
prevented them from doing so.

REDUCING TAXATION.
Fifty Voices to Blend at Queen's Avenue Church in  Rendering of Handel's  "Messiah."
Apropos of the opening of tbe legislature yesterday, it is gratifying to
learn from a source that may be regarded as semi-official that a reduction of taxation Is likely to be made
during tbe present session. Adverting
to this question the Daily News-Advertiser says:
"It is not unlikely that in the words
put into the mouth of His Honor by
llis responsible ministers, the subject
Will be mentioned of some substantial
reduction of taxation, as the result of
an expanding revenue and tl e accumulation of considerable surplus.
We have on more than one occasion
during the past few years suggested
that the abolition of the Provincial
Revenue Tax should receive the first
consideration When the financial situation made possible remissions of taxation. The conditions existi ig in the
early days of the Crown Colony when
the tax was first imposed, and which
made it. almost the only method by
which the thousands of foreign gold-
seekers could be made to contribute
to the cost of public works and educational expenditures have long since
passed away, and there are now
the present situation Of affairs
jections. both practical and theoretical, to the continuance of this particular impost."
We heartily endorse the view of
our contemporary and sincerely hope
the proposed reduction will soon be
made. ^ a  mumn
THE   BETTING   E>/IL.

No sane person will venture to dispute that gambling is an evil. Nor
will the majority of people be likely
to claim that race track gambling is
otherwise than -a pernicious and objectionable Institution. But, unfortunately the taking of a hazard of any
kind has a fascination for tt considerable portion of mankind, li is probably safe to say that the spirit of
gambling is Inborn to at least one
fourth of Ihe people in any country,
To suppress the Indulgence of the
gambling Instinct by statute will be
a very difficult matti r. tl will b as

it is even Cor tl e strong st government to suppress or vary the manners
and li stl ci of a nation. This for ';i>'
n ai on that 1 b y are part of li 1 -
��� ��� 1 :l causes. All such efforts are
useless unless the people are In a
temper and condition to recelvo the
reform Imposed. Therefore It Is that
the passion tor gambling must be
eradicated gradually by means of well
directed education.
A special committee of the House
of Commons is ;u present engaged
in taking evidence In connection with
the Bill that has been introduced to
prevent betting on race tracks, and
among the evidence adduced al the
sitting on Wednesday was that of
Hon. Adam Beck, a member of the
Ontario government, This gentleman
expressed the opinion thai it would
be Impossible to eliminate gambling

The oratorio, ".Messiah," which will
be given in the Queen's avenue Methodist church this evening, should
prove a noteworthy event In musical
circles ln the city. Conductor T. H
Pearson has been training the fifty
singers for some weeks and the parts
will all be well taken.
From tbe years 1880 to 1892 the
"Messiah" was rendered almost every
year by th 1 old Westminster "Choral
Union" under the directorship of
Bishop Sillitoe, but no local organization has attempted the work since.
George Frederick Handel was born
1685 and died 1769. llis name, one of
the greatest In the history of music
generally, is paramount In that of
English music. His influence in musical development and bis popularity
In England are perhaps unequalled
and never has a composer become
more essentially national than the
German Handel has become to the
British.
Handel lived in England the greater
part of his life and wrote most of bis
great English oratorios there between the years 1720 and 1757. They
include "Israel in Egypt," "The Messiah." "Judas Maccabaeus," etc.. etc.
" riie Messiah" is the musi sal equivalent Of Milton's "Paradise Lost." and
the spirit of Milton pervades many
of Ids oratorlo$.
It is said "The Messiah" was written in twenty-four days and was rirst
performed In Dublin. April IS. 1742.
Its first performance In London took
place on March 23 of the following-
year. Its introduction Into Handel's
native country was due to Philip Emmanuel Bach, son of the great Johann
Sebastian Bach, who conducted ii tit
Hamburg. In 175:! Handel became
blind, but this did not affect bis energy. He worked till the last and attended a performance of "The Mess
siah" a week before his death.
RAILWAY COMMITTEE
DISCUSSES WATER POWER
Ottawa, Jan. 2o.���The railway committee of tbe commons today entered
upon an interesting discussion as-to
the policy of the committee in respect
to any further alienation of water
power on Crown lands, in connection
with the granting of railway charters.
The questions came up in connection with a bill to charter the N( Ison

Outside   Advice   Sought   By   America

Walla.  Walla, Jan.  20.���There will
be   no  big  rabbit   drive   at   Attalia
Sunday if the women of this city can
prevent   it,  and  active  steps  toward
stopping   it   are   to   be   taken.     The
County Humane society at its regular
meeting yesterday roundly denounced
the  slaughter,  claiming that farmers
could fence their fields so the bunnies
would not get in. and that such exhibitions of "wanton cruelty as will be
mad.'   Sunday   would   not   be   necessary.'1     The   society   also   discussed
and decided to prevent if possible the
! throwing of rings at a goose's head
in the effort to get one over, and also
the   throwing   of   balls   at   a   monkey
chaired to the floor, these two things
being part of a carnival showing here
now
William I ills--, locomotive foreman,
stated at the Inquest that some one
must have su-rted the engine, and being unable to stop it, had jumped off.
When the engine crashed into the
roundhouse it was going at twenty
miles an hour. All the witnesses
swore that no one was seen in the
neighborhood when the accident happened at half past seven o'clock on
Tuesday morning.
Birmingham, Jan. 20.���The Post today states that for some time past
the American and Japanese governments have been trying to negotiate
a new immigration treaty.
It was found that the two countries could not reach an agreement on
certain vital points, and it was thereupon decided to seek the good offices
of the British government as mediator. This offer was accepted by Great
Britain, but the action by this coun-,
I try in the matter has been delayed

I  ���- .-{�����:
' 1    If  t
Dear Sirs,���We are down 770 feet, and have had considerable setbacks for the last few days. Last week we lost a whole string of tools for
three days, but we got them out all right. Yesterday we lost a part of a
bit In the well���It broke off while drilling���we are drilling It up today.
The showings still improve us we go down and it looks as if we
would get the well any day. I never saw a case where the good showings
were so far above the main body of oil before.
We have had sand rock in the last few days, and it is so hard that we
have made not over one (1) inch per/hour while working, but I like to see
that on top of the oil. It is one of the best indications possible. For the
last few days the whole floor of the derrick, where the water runs, has
been covered with oil.
I only wish some of you folks would come down and see what we
have. I believe it would be a wise thing for you to send somebody down
to look it over and so be able to report to the shareholders, and open
their eyes. I think we have the biggest proposition ever, and am satisfied
we will strike it rich.
Yours trnly,
.    I    &kk��LMt     (Signed) S. A. HUBBELL.
'
The Fossil Oil Co., Ltd. owns 500 acres of the choicest oil land in the world famous fossil oil field���a district known to yield as high as $10 per barrel on the1 field.
According to reports oil may be obtained now any moment* in large quantities, and
your opportunity of getting shares at the present price of twenty-five cents will be
then a matter of the past. These shares may advance to par or more, depending on
the flow of oil we have.
Consider!
that in order to pay dividends and bring shares to par value, only a flow from 50 to
100 barrels is necessary and, to be very conservative, figuring on a basis of only a 100
barrel well (there are wells in that locality which are yielding all the way to 500 barrels per day) we would have a net income of at least,$75,000 per year on our wells al
one..
This would be 3,000 per cent, on your investment
That is only on one well. We have room to place hundreds of wells on the property and the increase to share,
holders would be tremendous.
A $100 invested in these shares now may mean an
income of thousands per year. To be on the ground
floor, to get the benefit of the advance which may take
place now any day, you will have to act at once.
Shares:
Twenty-five cents
per share.
All shares par value one dollar, fully paid  and nonassessable.
Make your application today.
Pay cash, or quarter cash 1. 2 and 3 months.

IIX FERDINAND BAQGS,
im Garland McQuar-
bi r 23rd, 1909.
Nelson, Jna.Q L'0.���A  runaway en-
|gine which dashed Into the Canadian
i Pacific madhouse here in which mechanics   were   at   work   repairing   an
j engine  caused   the  death   of   W.   H.
! Terry and the serious injury of Geo.
i H, Jackson yesterday.    The runaway
| engine bad been left at the caol pits
by Jack Cross when he went off from
duty.
The engine was in readiness to
start on its usual run to Slocau City,
and before being left Its wheels were
locked. For some at present unknown
reason the engine reversed and then
dashed toward the roundhouse. The
turntable was open and the runaway
engine crashed through tlte doors tind
into the building. On the track over
the ashpit, jacked up and close to
1 the door, was engine No. T3S:J, on
! which a number of mechanics were
at work. Into this the runaway engine crashed.
Terry at the  moment   was  in   the
cab or working on the  firebox.    He
J was caught by the tender of the moving engine and terribly crushed,  his
left leg and  thigh  and  his  left arm!
being smashed.    G. Jackson, wbo was i
j taking down a wedge casting, dropped 1
into the ashpit and  escape;' with a
broken wrist.
The men were taken to a hospital.
where Terry soon succumbed to his
injuries. The cause of the accident is
unknown.
Scotch  Whisky
Choose Your Brand Carefully.
A Scotch address on the label does not
always mean genuine Scotch Whisky in the
bottle. 1 here arc many brands trading on the
reputation of Scotland s Highlands a9 a whisky
producing country beyond compare���brands put
up under fictitious names, and which, though
bearing Scotch addresses, never saw Scotland
at ali, much less the Highlands.
Choose as //our beverage, a brand with a
reputation Iu^k oi it.
Watson s Scotch Whisky has been distilled
in the Highlands of Scotland since the year
IoId. It is not only a pure, and genuine
Scotch ; it is a Whisky exceedingly agreeable
to the palate. This is due primarily to the
fact that we distil by the old-fashioned Pot
Still method   -slowly, carefully, skilfully.
Moreover, we age our Whisky in Sherry
wood���age it for years, until it is thoroughly
matured and mellow to the taste.
