Eight Boats Missing With Entire Crews���Search of Thirty Hours Fails to
Save Men Swept Out to Sea by Terrible Storm���Catastrophe is the
Greatest in Canso District Since 1873���Inhabitants of Stricken
Villages Despair of Ever Seeing Loved Ones Again���
Dominion Steamers Assist in the Search.
Halifax, N. S., Jan. 5.���A sudden
blizzard that swept down from the
north yesterday morning carried out
to sea twentj Ashing boats belonging
to Cause, Whitehead and Dover. Tonight after thirty hours' search, tight
boats with between fort) and
men are missing.
Hope that any of these nun arc
now   alive   lias,  been   almost   wholly
abandoned.
Fearful   Blizzard.
During all this time the thermometer has been hovering around zero,
and last night the poor fellows out
in open boats on the ley sea b id to
endure the rigors of a temperature
frpm six to eight << grees below- zero.
The bib rd was fearful In Its se-
verii/' and fierceness. Rough and
rugged as are the hardy fishermen
who had to face it, not one of them
still on the sea could long survive ll
and death  would soon    become welcome,
Fleet Searching for Survivors.
A   Heel   of   government   and   Other
steamships  have  been   searching  all
day   and  tonight  when  darkness set-
liity    tied  down  eight boats  were not accounted for.
The stricken villages are in despair. Wives aud children hardly
dare hope ever again to see husbands
and lathers.
The  weather    today  has    been til-
most as terrible as last night.
Fleet Sails in  Fair Weather.
Yesterday morning opened with
fair weather and a Beet of twenty-five
heats, manned by one hundred men,
put out for Haddock. Suddenly it
changed and so swiftly thai it was
next to impossible for all to get back
In the teeth of the gale.
Of  the   twenty-live -boats,   all   but
eight were able to beat their way
back or find refuge in other port.;, or
hold out till picked up today. But
eight ol them are gone, and more
than forty men are almost certainly
either frozen to death in drifting
boats, or drowned from the craft capsizing or being foundered.
��� Not only on the sea bin along the
eoast the unavailing search has been
continued and anxious watchers in
the stricken homes are driven to conclude that the bread-winners have
gone down with tiie boats or perished from exposure.
Worst Disaster Since 1873.
No disaster since the great August
gale of 1873 has anywhere approached
this appalling catastrophe lu the
story of fishing in the, Canso district.
Tlte search for the missing men began last night and has been kept up
continuously ever since.
Dominion Government Helps.
The Dominion government was
asked for help and promptly ordered
out the steamer Cabot, which was
lying In Isaacs harbor.
The Douglas H. Thomas was sent
from Sydney and the steam trawlers,
numbering thirty-three, Joined In the
search.
The government steamer Aberdeen
was ordered to the fishing grounds
and tlte Wobun that sailed from
North Sidney this evening wag directed to keep a sharp lookout,.
All their efforts so far have been
in vain except that the steam traw-
ler found one boat badly iced and
took It In tow.
Last night the trawler rescued
Capt. Feltmates' boat.
Whitehead is mourning the loss of
nineteen men and the deathroll of
Dover stands at twenty-two.

London, Jan. 5.���With the beginning of the new year, tlte smouldering tires of the English political campaign have burst forth into a white
beat, and a torrent of speech-making
is pouring forth upon the country.
Out of the CSS aspirants, either already nominated or yet to be chosen,
for seats in the next parliament,
there are a few who are not worrying
about their chances. They will not
be opposed in their respective constituencies.
The absolute certainties are seventeen Jn number. Of these, nine are
Irish Nationalists and seven Irish
Conservatives. The seventeenth is
speaker, the Right Hou. James Low-
ther, of the House of Commons, and
of the constituency of Penrith. The
speaker, according to Immemorial custom, being chosen for life aud consequently re-elected and re-elected to
parliament without opposition.
Lowther originally was a Conservative, but the theory is that, upon election of the speakership, the member
so honored becomes strictly nonpartisan. He also loses his vote, except iu case of ties. This means that
his constituency practically is disfranchised, but the speakership usually has honor enough without actual
ballot voice.
Several other members, while
they will have to fight for their
places, are certain of re-election as
they are as certain of election as they
can be certain of anything in politics.
Premier Asquith assuredly will win
in his old district of Fast Fife. Chan-

recommendations. The provincial
government, it was proposed, would
assume the responsibility of providing for the finances to either purchase the existing elevators or buy
a new system. Ihe cost either way

The elevators it was proposed
should be made self-sustaining. The

James F. MclJIroy, managing director
of the King County Fair association,
which controls local racing, will leave

the anti-racetrack gambling bill.
"If Emeryville can conduct racing

do the same," he says. Mr. McFlroy
is not entirely familiar witli the New

to racetrack betting, but he believes

New York Senator Declares

Monstrous   Institution.
it was the governor's proposition
to penalize the practise of bookmaklng even though no bets are recorded,
that roused the ire of Senator Grudy
t tolie point of attack, he declared
that while the governor attacked tne
horse owner, the bookmaker and the
man placing his bets upou a horse
race, he has "never dared io attack
the most monstrous gambling institution there is in the world, the New
York stock exchange, and to the end
of his career he will never have the
courage lo attack it."
"Let me call your attention to the
kid-gloved way which the governor
handles Wall street," continued
Grady. "When he comes to speak
of bookmaklng, it is gambling, public
gambling, and the distinction ot gambling outside the track and inside the
track have been obliterated. When
it comes to talk of Wall street gambling, with which he is personally
acquainted, and upon which he is an
expert authority, then it becomes
speculation and lie wishes to appoint
a commission to Inquire whether the
most nefarious system of gambling;
which exists today in the state el-'
New York, Wall street gambling, can
be reformed with advantage to the
public.
Exhibition of Audacity.
"Now we did not abolish the distinction between the mean and miserable gambling of the bucket-shop and
the equally uieui and miserable gambling In the broker's office, and the
reason we did not do it was because
of the Influence of the governor's
clients, who are members of the
Stock Exchange, and there was never
such an exhibition of audacity on the
part of the chief executive of this
state as to cloak his knowledge of
Wall street gambling, and supporting
the Stock Exchange selling the stocks
of railroads ten and twenty times a
year, by the appointment of a commission to acquaint him With jnst
what speculation in stock consisted
of. He knows that tie Stock Exchange is the biggest gambling institution In tiie world, driving men to
suicide, robbing widows and orphans,
playing with a stacked hand, using
marked cards, and he does not dare
to lift a finger against it, but he would
stand as the apostle of public contempt of the public gambling of the
race track."

Farmers Confer With Government on
""*   Policy of Public Ownership.
Winnipeg, Jan. 5.���The grain grow-
, ers' association committee was this
morning in conference with the Manitoba government to form a policy of
public ownership of all grain elevators in the province. It is many
years since farmers began complaining of Inadequate elevator facilities
and discrimination alleged to be practiced by companies under private
ownership.
One of the recommendations made
by the committee this morning was
that the elevators should be operated
bv an independent commission absolutely free from political influnece or
Interference. There are now 6%
elevators and warehouses in the province and the scheme of local government provides for their operation. In
addition the committee decided to
recommend to the Dominion government that it purchase and operate the terminal elevators on the
Croat Lakes.
Many Marriages In Chicago.
St. Joseph, Mich., Jan. 5.���Dan
Cupid was busy among Chicago couples in 1909, according to the marriage records of the county clerk
here. Of the 1728 licenses issued,
fully 75 per cent, were granted to
Chicagoans, who made hurried trips
across the lake and back. In 1908
1(130 licenses were issued, 98 less
than In 1909.
According to local lake transportation officials, Chicago will continue to
furnish the majority of marrying couples in St. Joseph, so long as brides
and grooms can make the trip over,
be wedded and arrive back again
without losing more than one day's
work.
Spokane's Population.
Spokane, Wash., Jan. 5.���Spokane
now boasts of a population of 132,750

THE   PREMIER'S VISIT.
The report thai Sir Wilfrid Laurier
will visit this coast when the House
of Commons rises, will be welcome
news to every citizen of British Columbia. We venture to assert that
there is not one man in this province
Who, whatever his political opinions
may be, does not at heart entertain
a warm admiration for the man who
has done so very much towards endowing Canada with the high position
and prosperous condition which she
enjoys and holds today. Sir Wilfrid,
who, it is stated, has abandoned his
Intended trip to Europe, and will
come West instead, may rest assured
that lie will receive a most hearty
nnd enthusiastic welcome here, The
Vancouver Board ol' Trade lias already decided to entertain the Premier to a complimentary banquet, and
it is to lie hoped thai, the people of
tiie Royal City will not be behindhand
in expressing their loyplty and esteem
lo so Lonored a chief,
ing their attention. One of the most
pressing is Front Street, the unfinished condition of which has caused, and
is causing, grave inconvenience to
firms located on that thoroughfare,
and those who have to use it. Our
recollection is that tlte grading and
metalling of tills street was to be
completed quickly, so as to provide a
means of relief to Columhla Street
whilst the sewering, paving and other
work was being done. But Front
Street appears to have been left In a
half finished condition, and when the
thaw sets in its latter state will be
worse than the first. It is to be hoped
that immediate steps will be taken to
complete the work on this street.
AERIAL RIGHTS.
City Solicitor's Opinion.
In connection with the point raised
by Alderman Jardine at the first
meeting of the 1910 Council, questioning whether the mayor had power to
appoint the different committees o'
the council, it is understood the advice of the city solicitor litis been
taken, and the opinion expressed that
committees should he appointed by
the w-hole council, and not by the
mayor. A special committee named
to look into the matter, will report to
this effect at tho next council meeting.

The Mohawk Challenge.
A  letter from Kho Mohawk   Lacrosse
club, of St. Paul, asking for Information about the Minto icup and 'he
qualifications necessary to a challenging team, will he referred to Hie
trustees of the cup. As tar as onu
be learned, the Americans are qualified to challenge, as the cup is for
the championship of the world and
not onl> ol Canada. However, it is up-
to the trustees to decide whether
they can play fast enough ball to be j
allowed to mix ii with the New Westminster aggi egatlon.
Family   Relationship.
A letter was received from E. Mur-,
ray. of Mciiin university, asking for
information about the players on the
team. lie wanted lo know particularly of the cases of brothers playing
on the team; how long they had
played together and whether their
father played or not. The Informa-'
tion asked for was to cover a period
of twenty years and was to be used
in an article to be written in Montreal on near relations in great athletic organizations. The article is to
appear lo the American edition oi
Sporting Life. The secretary thought
that the scheme involved some work
and so the letter was turned over to
the Rev. J. S. Henderson for reply,
Archie MacNaughton's Claim.
The MacNaughtOD affair came up
again toi discussion, and was referred
to Secretarj P. D. Ross of Ottawa.
MacNaugbton claimed that be did uoi

was taken from the gate receipts but
was not turned over to him. .\ letter

RED GEM
Ottawa, .Ian. 5.���Thai the Duke of
Connaught, Kin;, Edward's soldier
brother, will he the next governor-
general of Canada is extremely unlikely.
The suggestion, which is now revived in the shape ot a letter from
London, was originally put forth by a
Canadian of well Known ultra-imperialistic tendencies, in a magazine article written more than a year ago.
His theory was thai us Canada bad
advanced trom the status ol a colony
to be governed by a graduate of the
colonial office, as was thi case ai confederation, to that Of a self-governing
dependency of the empire, demanding
the vice royalty of a lord at least, the
evolution tended to the appointment
of a scion of royalty.
Such a governor-general, according
to this theory, could be reappointed,
upon good behavior, from term io
term, s,i iis to make his tenure of office practically for life and thus not
only provide a place for out ol work
members of the royal family, but also
strengthen the bonds of imperial
union.
Unfortunately for this argument,
however, the experiment of a royal
resident at Government House has
not proved quite a success. In the
ease of Lord Lome mow Duke of
Argylei the dignity of royalty rather
eclipsed the official status of the
queen's official representative, nor
were the social crudities ol' Canada's
capital in the early eighties tit all
congenial to the Princess Louise.
Since then Canada had been satisfied
to have the crown represented by
British statesmen of tiie standing of
Xunsdowiie. of Stanley, Earl of Derby,
of Lord Aberdeen and of Earl Grey,
the present Incumbent of otlice.
What is more likely than his coming to Canada Is that the Duke of
Connaught will be made Lord Lieutenant of Ireland.

New York. Jan. 5.���The marked increase in customs receipts on passengers' baggage under William Loeb's
COllectorship as already shown by
monthly reports, was brought out in
greater contrast by figures for the
year made public pesterday. Receipts
for 1909 were nearly 120 per cent.
greater than' the combined receipts
for 1906 and 1907, although the latter
year had been the best in the history
of the pott.
More than $1,000,000 in duties were
collected in 1909 by Mr. Loeb's insistence that everybody pay, rich and
poor alike. The amount was more
than double that for 1908, although
the number of Incoming passengers
showed an increase of only one-sixth.

about  a  change in  the  national costume  tliis    year,    besides, advocating
the aholitiou of the pigtail.      To show
that he is in earnest   the Prince Be-
; gent   has   himself started  to  wear a

! eign minister at Pekiu.
The abolition of the pigtail  meets
1 witli far less popular opposition than
j the adoption of    European costumes.
; The anti-pigtail party argue that this
characteristic appendage   is    unsanitary, that it is an object of derision

of the London wards of Battersea and
Poplar. On account of tho notorious
uncertainty or London constituencies
these two will have to fight hard.
Most of the prominent Conservatives are confident of re-election. Arthur J. Balfour, the Conservative I
leader, and Sir Frederick Branbury,
the cunnlngest obstructionist in par-!
liiiment, are absolutely certain of success. They are the two representatives from the "City of London,'' a
patch one mile square In the heart of
the great metropolis. It is the cer-
tre of the financial district and, unlike the erratic outer London wards,
it always is Conservative by 10,000 to
12,000 majority.
Joseph Chamberlain will dictate the
seven Birmingham seats, as usual.
He will have a contest, however.
The Liberals made the mistake in
1900 of leaving him unopposed, as a
result of which he stumped the country at large doing Incalculable damage to Liberal candidates in weak
constituencies. This time he will
have to remain at home to fight his
own campaign.
The election of Joseph Chamberlain himself is largely a matter of
compliment, as he has been unable
to attend parliament for two years,
and probably never will be seen at
Westminster again. Although he was
howled down at a recent meeting In
his own constituency of East Worcestershire, Joseph Chamberlain's son,
Austen, is undoubtedly sure, at least
in his father's opinion, of re-election.
Otherwise, It is certain tha*. the older
man would see that he is taken care
