Tiie policy of distributing the lire-1

Now Westminster and Slocan districts, calling for a plebiscite on the
question of applying tlie Canada Temperance act, despite the setbacks experienced in Prince Unpen and Chilliwack,
Local temperance people, however,
state that there Is no Immediate intention of taking tiiis action, and all
that is being done meantime is to
work towards fostering such a sentiment among the people that will m iko

Dr, Spencer, who has just returned

LOST ST. DENIS SEEN
BEHAVING BADLY IN STORM
Victoria, Dec. 28.���Captain Cutler,
of the tug Lome, saw the lost St.
Denis passing out into tlie heavy
storm of Xovember 21 when the
Lome had to run for shelter to Neah
bay, where the steam schooner Lucy
Neff was also sheltering.
The St. Denis, plunging heavily,
passed out in the middle of the strait
and from the tug Lorne it was seen
that tlie overloaded vessel was not
lifting much, tlie big seas breaking
over her.
Officers of the Lorne think she
foundere I soon after leaving the
strait, most likely being swamped in
an effort to put about and run back.

Ths rumors that ha\e boen rife for
th* past two weeks regarding the
mo\e at Sunbury have at last crystallized, and the name that.'!-; now be
lleved to be at the back of it all I.
the Western Steel corporation.
Two  Thousand  Acres  Secured.
All tbe facts of the case are not yet
available, but it is now kno^n that
Hubert Kennedy, of the firm of Kennedy Bros., of this city, has purcbat.d
or placed under option close on two
thousand acres of land at and surrounding that point, 'lhe acreage tied
up has oxer seven thousand feet of
water frontage, mostly below the St.
Mango cannery, and spreads out in
the shape of a fan. It is uuderstood
that the total purchase price ls in the
vicinity of half a million. .
Site Recommended in 1909.
The purchase for which Mr. Kennedy has bought this property is not
announced, but about a year ago he
recommended this site to the Western
Steel corporation, with which he is
connected. The location is an admirable one for an Industry of this nature, having deep water close to the
bank and good anchorage in the
stream. The Great Northern railway
also runs through the property, and
the probability Is that the iron works
will be located on the waterfront
close to the track, while the shape
and position of the acreage back of
the river would naturally suggest
that it is intended for a townsite.
Wealthy Corporation. '
What this means to the south arm
of the Fiaser, and eventually to the
city  of    New    Westminster,    cannot
easily   be   estimate I.     Tlie   Western
Steel   corporation   is   a  concern  with
ramifications    all    over  the    United
States,  involving   millions  of   dollars
capital.    It is backed by the Carnegie
Steel  trust,  and  bas  enormous  holdings   in   Canada,   for   which   it   must
liave  an  outlet.    This has  long been
recognized   by   real   estate    men    in
V��mowm *���A  Uxla  cits, and  it hai
also been known tbat they were making   tentative  proposals   with   a   View
to securing the necessary    site    for
their enterprises either on Burrard inlet or on the Fraser river.
While it is not announced that they
have definitelv decried to locate at
Sunbury, wh< n it is taken into consideration the extreme suitability of
the site and t e fact that it has beeu
purchased at a figure absurdly low in
comparison with anything that could
be   got  on  the   inlet,   there   remains
very little doubt in tlie minds of competent judges that they have un-
Officially  decided lo do so.
Well Served by Railways.
Sunbury is located on the south
bank of the Fraser opposite the lower
��*tid of Annacis Island. The Great
Northern line leaves the bank at this
point and turns south, lhe B, C. E.
K. has promised a line to Ladner
which will run through the new
townsite, and it is only a matter of
time till the C. N. K. also runs a
branch from Port Mann to this po.nt.
Also, there is the possibility that the
C. M. & P. S., whi?h Is known to be
seeking a Canadian port, will build
tlieir wharves there.
This latter assumption is not based
on any definite information, but It ia
known that about a thousand feet of
water frontage and several hundred
acres of land, held by P. Burns, of
cattle fame, is under option to an unknown party, who is believed by-
many real estate brokers in Vancouver to represent this company. Color
is Jent to this rumor by the fact that
it has not been the practice of the
C. M. & P. S. in the past to acquire
and sell townsites. They have been
in the habit' of securing only enough
land for wharves, sid.ngs, and the
other requirements of a railroad terminal. The land supposedly purchased by them in this inst/inee woull
just about meet this specification.
Forests of Stacks and Masts.
From the foregoing it will be seen
that ample railroad facilities will be
assured to the new townsite, and the
eye of a visionary is not needed to see
the results which would spring frcm
the location of a huge steel works at
this point, with a forest of tall chimneys on land and a foi est of taul
masts on the water.
Enploy Army of Men.
The    Western    Steel   corporation's
works at Irondale, near Seattle, whic l
it  is their intention to duplicate on
the Canadian side, employ about five
thousand men, who with their families would form the nucleus of a city
not much inferior in point of numbers
to    New  Westminster    itself.    Then
there would be a host of smaller industries,  drawn    as    by a    magnet,
which would side up to the big works.
Other   Industries   Assured.
With the land at their disposal, and
water frontage in excess of.their own
needs, it would naturally fie the policy
of the steel    kings    to    foster    the
growth of industries wliich would afford them a nearby market for thei;'
products,     and     the     result     wo'.ild
That E. J. Fader is meeting with
success in Ills financial negotiations
in the old country, was the satisfactory news reported at a meeting of
the directors of the Westminster
Trust company held last evening.
Mr. Fader, who is largely interestel
in several important industries in
this vicinity, has been in England for
two or three months and the letter
from which extracts were read at the
meeting last night intimated that he
had been successful In interesting
Britisli capital in some of the industrial enterprises with which he is connected here.
The meeting last night, which was
attended by all the directors, was extremely optimistic and the reports
submitted to the meeting showed that
the company had transacted a record
business in the last year, and especial
ly during the last few months.
R. A. & I. MEETING.
Committees Will Be Appointed When
Directors Meet in February.
The annual meeting of the directors
of the R. A. & I. society will be held
neie on February 10, when lt Is expected that all matters connected with
the prize list will be settled, the
committees appointed, tne audito.'s
report read and other business transacted, In the notices being sent out
by the secretary the directors of the
society are urgently requested
to be present as tne success ot tlie
next exhibition largely depends on
the interest shown and the actions
taken at the meeting.
Eight Fishing Boats Rounded up by Government
Steamer at Nanaimo.
Nanaimo, Dec. 28.���The Dctniur��n
government fisheries steamer Alcei*
this morning captured eight Japanese
fishing boats' who were caught fishing
during prohibited hours in Departure
bay. This afternoon the owners dC
the outfits were brought before
Justice of the Peace Shakespeare,
and Tgkashasi and Tanaka each lined
$35.
As none of the boats were showing
lights this fact was reported to Harbor Master Knarston and another flne
was inflicted on this count, ia one;
case and a warning given to all.
Two of the outfits were able to
prove they were not fishing when the-
Alcedo came across them, although
they were in protected waters. All
were warned against banging aroui^i
In the waters of the bay during prohibited hours.
SUNDAY SCHOOL TREAT.
Chinaman Dies.
Tlie  death  occurred   at   the   Royal
Columbian hospital about four o'clock
this morning of Na Gee, a Chinaman. I
He was thirty-three years old and ha 11
been emt loved at the    Depot    hotel, i
Just a month ago he returned from
China where he had been visiting Ills
wife and four year old son. |
naturally by the location there of shipyards and other enterpiises of a like
nature.
Their by-products, too, would call
for a market, ancl the advantages accruing to contiguous cities can easily
be seen.
Summing up, it is not too optimistic,
considering all the    possibilities,    to
prophesy that In flve years there will
be a city of ten thousand Inhabitants
on the south  bank    of    the    Fraser.
where once stood the little settlement
of Sunbury, and one more opportunity
will be afforded the old timers of ex
plaining  how   they   coJd   once  have
bought up the entire city for a sang.
Children and Friends Make Merry at
St. Paul's  R. E. Church.
The annual Sunday school Christmas entertainment of St. Paul's Reformed Episcopal church was celebrated in the school room yesterday
evening, when an enjoyable time was-
spent by all attending. Much of the
credit for the success of the evening
is due Miss Vera Gilley, tlie organizer, and her staff of volunteer assi^-
ants.
Santa Claus, of course, was introduced and became the central figure
of interest for the little folk. The oH
gentleman appeared in a number of
tableaux, making his final entry by
the chimney route, according to tradi*
tion. This chimney had been built
specially for this purpose, and was
immediately after distributed to the
kildies, who ate it brick by brk*v
pronouncing it good candy.
During the evening the pastor, Rer.
A. deB. Owen, was presented with a
handsome umbrella, Mis. Owen being
also the recipient of gifts. F. P.
Maxwell, superintendent of the Sunday school, was presented by the
scholars with a Morris chair. All the
gifts were duly appreciated and acknowledged.

more than the upset price, lhe upset-
price was $2570 and the price pa'd by
R. McNair, of Vancouver, for the

There were a dozen or Two peopl��
at the sale when it commenced, but..
when Auctioneer Leamy, after explaining the nature of the sale and
the terms of the agreement, called
for bids, Mr. McNair was the only tne
on hand with anything to say. Mr_
Leamy waited several minutes and!
gave every one present a chance te

forthcoming.
The limit, which constats of 64V

New York, Dec. 28.���After a Journey i,l' about 12,000 mile-;, A. Weir
Mason, one of tlie Justices of thc supreme court of lhe new Union of
South Africa, is in New York to spend
the holidays witli his son, who Is a
student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Justice Mason left
Pretoria on November 1'J. He will return early In January.
"I doubt very much whether the
American population of South Africa
is Increasing," snld Justice .Mason In
answer lo a finest ion.
"One reason is that we are now
growing our own men. The big lines
of development have been laid down.
The American engineers who were re
sponsible have done the hi_ work and
many liave left the country. Naturally there are fewer coming In.
"South Africa is an interesting
country. W'e are more especially concerned over a problem with which
you have had to deal in this country
���that is, what, are the proper relations between blacks and whites, for
In our count ry tlie former are nearly
five to one. They represent all ages.
We aro always looking to America to
Bee how you aro progressing toward
the solution of this difficult problem.
In many parts of South Africa polygamy between the blacks is, recognized

Copenhagen, Dec. 2S.���King George
I., the former Danish prince who nas
| surprise:! everyone by sitting fast on
the wobbly throne cf Greece these
forty-seven years past, caine nearer
tO being horn on Christmas Hay than
any other of the sovereigns of Europe. December 24, 1845, is generally
accepted as the date of his birth, bul
the records of the royal family of
Denmark show that the hour of his
| advent into this mundane Bphere was
j almost simultaneously with the birth
of t'ln 1st mas Day in 1845, and the 1 ito
King Christian and Queen Louise
were often  heard  to refer to him  as
I tlieir Christmas present.
King Qeorge apparently bas never
j forgotten the days of his youth, when
bis parents, who had nol yet been
called to tlie Danish throne, were notoriously poor. At sixty-eight years
age the King of Greece finds him-
���_f among the very wealthiest members of European royalty. His reputation for thrift is such, in fact, thut
it has been said he still has the first
money which came to him after his
accession to the throne of Greece iu
1863. However this may be, it is certain that he has managed to save a
tidy sum each year out of liis civil
list. Much of his savings has been
safely invested in realty, while the
remainder lias been use! by the monarch in speculating on the Paris
Bourse, in which he has been eminently successful. In recent years he
has invested large s.ims in American
securities.
Would Like to Quit Ruling.
It is an open secret that King
George, were it not for consideration
of the members of his family, would
welcome a political upheaval in
Greece such as recently deprived the
young King of Portugal of his throne.
Many times during tlie last quarter of
a century the King of the Hellenes
has been reported on the point of abdicating. That he undoubtedly expects such an event to occursocner o-
later is evidenced by the careful pie-
parations he has made for the future.
Practically his entire fortune lias
been invested outside of Greece, and
only within the past month or so he
has concluded t'e purchase of two
magnificent estates in Denmark, evidently to be used for his own residence when the time comes for him
to finally quit Athens.

Experts   Adopt   New   Slogin   ii
Against   Tuberculosa.
Chicago, Dec. 28.���The family pets,
especially cats, spread tuberculosis
and for that ie:ison are man's worst
enemy, accordl ig to bacteriologists
and Instructors at medical schools interviewed    heie    today.     Practically
. every expert who was interviewed (a-
| dorsed the stand taken by Dr. W. L.
1 Emser, of Cleveland, who has adopted
tlie slogan of "kill tlie cat and tuberculosis."
"Not the cat alone, but the dog as
well spread tuberculosis and diphtheria" declared Prof. Paul G. Heine-
mann, assistant in bacteriology at the
University of Chicago. "I think that
these pets spread diphtheria germs
even more than tuberculosis, though,
strange to say, they are both immune
from the disease. It is especially dangerous for them to be around children.
"Both the cat and the dog will take
up sputum and thus contract the disease germs. These they carry until
they transmit them to other dogs or
cats or to human beings."
"Cats are, fndeed, a menace to the
household, and tbe public should be
so informed," declared a dean in the
medical department of the university,
who is also an assistant in pathology.
"1 should Insist that the cat were
even more dangerous as a diphtheria
medium than a tuberculosis one. It is
particularly   dangerous    to    allow   a
i child to play with a cat."

London, Dec. 1!8.���A remarkable
lien cuse was heard in the London
courts this week. A Japanese visitor
In London sued a hotel company for
damages, alleging the detention or
conversion of three railway tickets
for Loudon from Harbin, Manchuria
Counsel said that the plaintiff purchased the tickets for $112.04 each on
October 11, and later found that they
had boen stolen from him. He
promptly gave notice to the agency
from which he had purchased them.
On October 15, it seems, A Fred
llerg, of Chicago, went to a London
hotel as a guest. Two days later he,
told the hotel clerk that he was short
of cash and got a loan of $175, depositing the three railway tickets. Berg
left the hotel on the 19th, leaving a
debt for four days' board and residence, and some baggage, which was
found to be rubbish.
The hotel claimed the right to- hold
the tickets as a Hen. Counsel for the
hotel company argued that they could
not hand the tickets to the plaintiff,
because Iterg might pay back the
money and claim his security.
The Judge came to the conclusion
that this was a mere money lending
transaction upon the security of the
three tickets, and that no question of
relationship of landlord and guest
really arose.   Judgment was given for
the"plninUtt with costs.

A special divided flue makes
the oven a perfect baker.
There is not a range in the

Baking clay  instead  of being a

satisfaction.
Come in the store when you're down

Smallness of Tribe and Lack of Good
Chieftanship Timber Makes Appointment of Head Improbable.
THURSDAY, DECENT. R 29   1910.
MECHANICS AND THE ARTS.
To such a degree of mechanical
perfection has the aeroplane now
been brought that flight has been accomplished at a speed representing
approximately sixty miles an hour. As
ii raring feat and a proof of mechanical excellence this is, of course, a
���wonderful attainment. But it is doubtful whether it will help very materially towards the evolution of the flying
machine as a means of locomotion for
��very clay use.
This, however, by the way. The
question is whither does this craving for speed and desire for the cir-
rians-tanee of excitement tend? Will
rhe human race be any better for its
continued conquering of the forces of
nature ? Are people any happier for
She jiossession of the ..Various facilities and conveniences which mechanical .genius has evolved ? It is indee.I
a moot question. We are able to navigate the dept lis of the sea and the
Tieifthts of the air; in almost noiseless vehicles we speed rapidly over
*he crust of the earth, and in monster
vessels race across the ocean; by the
mere touch of a key words are winged
iicioss the space of the globe, and by
she slight movement of a switch the
streets of a city or the rooms of .
hou.se may be brilliantly illuminated;
���whilst wondrous scenes from tlie four
corners of the earth are compressed
into small space ancl reproduced by
the cinematograph for our amusement. The list of modern mechanical
achievements is indeed little short of
marvellous. Tiie inventor and the en-
rgineer have accomplished what to our
forefathers would have seemed Impos-
a ible.
Vet is life so sweet, so joyous, so
pure -or so beautiful to us as it was to
these self same forefathers ? Tiie
comparative simplicity of tlieir existence, with their fieedom from the
worry of haste and all the nerve
Straining characteristics of modern
(rimes gave them such opportunities
for plain, but pure enjoyment as are
tlenied to us. Such is the pace of life
today that there is practically no leis-
The funeral of the lute Chief Johnny
took place at. the Coquitlam reservation on Tuesday afternoon,, and yesterday Father Chirouse con*e red wi h
the Indian agent, R. C. MacDonald, in
regard to the appointment of a successor. Nothing was done, however,
and it is unlikely that a new chief
will be appointed for some time, if
indeed it is considered necessary to
appoint one at all.
Official chiefs of Indian reserves,���
are appointed by the department of j ft
Indian affairs at Ottawa, usually on
the recommendation of the Indian
agent. Mr. MacDonald states that unless an outstanding member of tlie
tribe can be found to take over the
position, wliich is in mose cases a
sinecure, it is useless.to appoint a
chief, and in fact tlie tribe is better
off without an official head.
There are at present a number of
tribes minus a chief, for instance the
Capilano Indians and those located at
American Bar. The latter are a particularly intelligent and civilized
tribe, and are increasing in numbers
The Coquitlam Indians, however,
have shrunk lo a remnant of thei
former strength, there being only
about forty members left, and taking
all the circumstances into considera
tion, it is more than probable that
nothing will be done in the matter of
selecting a successor to the deceased
warrior. Tlie names of several full
blooded Indians who are eligible (or
the honor have been mentioned in|i\|
this connection, but it is understood In
that they are not acceptable to the
' i government on account of their prone-
ness to indulge in tlie firewater wliich
was the cause of tlie demise of Chief
Johnny. I ���
Father Chirouse, who is the head j a
of the Roman Catholic missions to I
the Indians on the mainland of Brit- [
ish Columbia, states that there was ! I
much sorrow among the members of i
the Goquitlam tribe over tlie death ol I
the late chief, who was held in much
esteem by his followers.��

such action Is necessary at present.
It must be remembered that while the
Dominion parliament enacts the
criminal law, the administration of
the law is in tlie hands of the provincial authorities, represented in each
province by the attorney-general. In
some cases, where the information respecting tho falsification of returns
