The business which is now being
capitalized at $200,000 started In a
small way in 1886, when the Gilley
brothers embarked In the livery and
learning business, having their barn
on the sile now occupied by the
Kwong On Wo store oil Columbia

degrees, a side line of coal and building material being added. A few

WILL ADVERTISE AGAIN
FOR PROPOSED INCINERATOR
Cheques of    Two  Firms    Which Submitted Tenders Will Be Returned

BELGIANS BOTBEREB BY
KING ALBERT'S MARRIAGE
Catholics  Disposed  to   Make  Trouble
Unless Ruler Submits to Influence
of Church.
Brussels, Jan. 4.--Le Soir asserts
thai the marriage of King Albert and
Queen Elizabeth, who was Hie princess of Bavaria, was sanctioned net
their by the late King Leopold nor by
parliament, as is required by the
constitution of Belgium. The paper
Insists that sanction of the marriage
by parliament is Imperative.
Since the confirmation of Leopold's
religious marriage, the Catholic papers seem dlspoced to raise a threat
against future dynastic issues, unless
King Albert Bubmlts to Catholic influences.
The proposed incinerator was given
another setback yesterday when
Mayor Lee, j. Carter Smith and City
Engineer Blackman, after going into
ihe matter thoroughly, decided to return the cheques of the two companies which have submitted I nders. it
was thought, that more tenders migai
be receievd il the scheme were more
extensively advertised and more time
given to allow Interested companies
lo  look   into  ihe  pioposith ;i.
In response to the la ,i advertisement only two tenders W( re received.
one being from Richard Taunton, of
Winnipeg, representing the Ho mm
<t Froude patent Incinerator, ami one
from the Public Works Engineering
company, of Portland. The tits; tender was foi' Ihe burner alone, and for
that reason was not considered, while
the council considered that it did not
have enough information ou Hie second machine to enter into any contract   lor its installation.
While other schemes havt been
suggested for the disposal of the garbage of the city, most of tne aldermen firmly believe thai the Incinerator is tin- only ultimate solution of
the refuse problem. The committee
will report to the council suggesting
that the city again advertise foi- lenders lor the erection of an incinerator
and that ample time be given for the
receiving    E t<   ,'. :.s.

an army eastward to me. t this force.

FRASER   RIVER   PILOTS
MUST REMAIN  HERE
At the annual meeting of the pl'ot
board yesterday, a suggestion that
the pilots of New Westminster, Nanaimo, Victoria and Vancouver be
placed under one head was turned
down. The proposal was to the effect that a general pilot station be
established at Williamliead, near Victoria, where all vessels passing would
take on a pilot, the pilots working in
order. The reason for the rejection
of the scheme by New Westminster
is that tho pilots of the Fraser need
to be in constant touch with the
changing course of the river and they
would not be able to do this under
the proposed plan.
Notification was received that F. P.
Maxwell tiad been appointed deputy
harbor master at New Westminster,
his duties commencing on January 1.
The report of the board shows thai
though the numbers of vessels which
plied on the Fraser was not much
greater during 1009, than It has been
In previous years, yet the tonnage
showed a considerable increase.

DIRTY FAT MAN MAKES
AWFUL BBAST IN SPOKANE
No  Bath for Fifteen Years, No Food
For Nine Days;  Has $5000;
Arrested.
Spokane, Jan. 4.���Boasting that he
had not taken a bath In fifteen years
nor tasted food in nit.e weeks, J. P.
Peterson, a native of Sweden, for
years a lodger In the Big Island house
in Suokane, with $4,Sou lu bank certificates and $bu ia gold securely
strapped under his left arm, was arrested by order of the city health department and bathed in a tank at the
county Jail. The bath required the
services of four "trusties" aud occupied two hours. He was afterward
sent to a local hospital where he will
have a daily plunge and scrub during
his stay.
Peterson weighs 250 pounds, is well
proportioned and as strong as an ox.
This is evidenced by the fact that six
husky deputies connected with nealth
department had their hands full in
taking him from his room, which, by
contrast, was as clean as a Dutch
housewife's klt'chen. He was overpowered after he became exhausted,
knocking the deputies around like a
lot of tenpins on a bowling alley. He
appeared to enjoy the scrubbing.
A. C. Clausen, deputy prosecutor of
Spokane county, and the city officials
are in a quandary as to what to do
with the man. He was arrested on the
charge of vagrancy, but this win not
hold, as he has plenty of money. His
sanity was questioned, but the officers dismissed that charge, because
they say, he is sane enough to keep
his money, and also rational in his
talk.
Peterson refused to discuss his past
saying only that he came to Spokane
from the east four years ago, after
touring every state, territory and
province on the American continent
and had planned not to permit water
to touch his skin until the close of
1924, adding he is working out a new
theory on health. PAGE TWO.

Robin Hood Flour
"The Flour that is Different"
We must stand ready to prove
it and also prove that the difference is so marked, so worth
while, that you will feel this is
the flour you ought to use.
That is exactly where we do
stand.
We ask you to take no risk.
Buy a bag of ROBIN  HOOD
and give it two fair trials.    If it ^
does not prove perfectly satisfactory, so satisfactory that you, too,
say,   It is really the flour that is different," you may
take it to your grocer  and   lie  will  give you Lack
your money.
Will you make the trial on your next flour order?

Mnhiidge. s. D., Jan. 4.���"One hundred feet north, and one hundred
feet west, of where ibis stone stood
you will find some papers thai wi|l
do you lots of good."
This strange missive, crudely lettered on a stone tablet and buried
with the bones of a man and woman
nearly a century ago, made A. W.
Vail, general foreman of tne Kllf
waukee road, t li Ink he had been reading "Gold Bug" or '"Pleasure island"
when In- found a grave one mile east
of Mobridge a few dayst. ago.
He at first thought it was a hoax,
bnt upon digging- as indicated found
a hollow bone of some animal, and
in this bono, which was plugged at
both ends, a piece of pareliment covered with writing in French, lie will
not disclose the exact wording of tlte
matter on the parchment until he
can go to Alabama and look into tho
authenticity of it. but he says that it
pertains to a grant of land iu Alabama made by tho government to one
Pierre La Moure in 1889. The parchment was dated that year, while the
tablet hears the date 1842:

THE  TRIPLE  CITIES.
A breezy, well written article was
contributed to a recent issue of Collier's Weekly by Harold Sands, descriptive of the three Racine coast
cities. The idiosyncrasies and characteristics of Victoria, New Westminster and Vancouver are admirably
sketched. Thus, in comparing the respective positions of the Capital and
the Terminal City the writer remarks
that:
"Perhaps the chief reason why Victoria bas been so qulckl) outrun by
Vancouver is thai while the latter
was established by Canadians and
Americans, the former is essentially
an English city. Founded by men
senl out from the Old Country by the
Hudson's Bay Company, it. stil] retains some of the characteristics of
tiie Victorian era which have been
discarded in the home land, ;"id so
its people are now spoken of as more
English  than  the  English "
in dealing with New Westminster
Mr. lands is fairly appreciative of the
merits and claims of the city, though
his views are just a little flavored
vith sarcasm and prejudice in favor
of Vancouver. Yet there is much
that is fair and truthful in his description.     He says:
"In the east, New Westminster is
known only as the place from which
comes a champion lacrosse team,
holder of the Minto cup. Hut it is
far more than this.      It is the chief
1 twater  port  of  Biitish  Columbia
���mil tlie market town for the Eraser
valley, the richest agricultural section
of the whole province. For a considerable period the Hudson's Bay gen-1
tility and the Johnnie-come-latelies
from England held in New Westminster the same non-progressive Influence that they exercised at. Victoria.
But now we miss the "just-come-
ovah's" from their accustomed drinking haunts, and the "H.B.C." men
have given place to energetic native
sons. The old order is changing,
much to the advantage of the Royal
City. .Moreover, the splendid country
round aboiii u is last bemg settled
by vigorous people from Eastern
Canada, and me daj seems n it far
uisL.nt when the old town win be
again as lively ad it was in the days
when the Cariboo miners used to
smash mirrors with twenty-dol ar gold
pieces,
" fills opinion seems to lie shared
by no less ;i distinguish I C nadian
than D. D. Mann, a gentleman of few
but. so. tei Imei verj . ai su words, who
usually prefers to deal in cold facts
rather than roseate talks oi the future. Mr. Mann has an idea that
"elevators and things" win be erected
.en the banks of the Fraser in greater I
lumbers than on Burrard inlet and
pat the wheat ships will sail up the
great river, dropping their barnacles in the fresh water as they
leisurely negotiate the deep, permanent channel which a little work on
the part of a paternal government at
Ottawa can insure.
"Hid you ever hear a Salmon Belly
roar? They call t.. people Of New
Westminster Salmon Bellies," because In the da>s before greedy cannery barons of British Columbia existed tlte sockeyes used to form
themselves into bridges so that the
people of the Royal City could cross
the wide streams. Well, if you wain
to listen to the snort of a Salmon
Belly, suggest that New Westminster
will probably be included in Greater
Vancouver."
Mr. Sands refers to an article
printed In the News atietit the audacious claim of L:e Province for the
extension of Vancouver's boundaries
to the Fraser, some months ago, as an
instance of the strong resentment
which the Royal City can display
when her greedy sister on the Inlet
exhibits a keen voracity for the assimilation of her neighbors. He is
kind enough to Bay that for this
"allowance can cheerfully be made
for the Royal City." No reference Is,
however, made to the more recent at
tempt to put this spirit of greed into
execution, by laying claim to the
North Ann of the Fraser river, an
attempt that was promptly frustrated.
Mr. Sands has hit the truth though
when he says that "New Westminster will never willingly drink a toast
to a greater Vancouver which includes the area now embraced by the
Royal City."
Such a toast Is nor. r likely to be
justified. The citizens of New Westminster have not the slightest doubt
that the accident of circumstance
which gave Vancouver her chance
will be revoked. They know- thai
witli so splendid a fresh water harbor
as nature has endowed
is only now u matter of
when New Westminster will stand to
the fore as the premier port on the
Pacific coast. Far-seeing and keenwitted men like D. D. Mann know this
too, and are laying their plans accordingly. The people of Vancouver
also recognize this Inevitable circumstance, hence their recent frenzied effort to annex a line along the margin
of the Fraser. The foundation for
this great  and  Important  future  has
! already  been  laid,  and   with  a  little
��� more patience    and   a   continuity of
united  effort    by  our    citizens  New
' Westminster will very soon come into
' her own.

Re-establishment of Reading Committee for Comedie  Francaise  is
Recommended.
Paris, Jan. 4.���Interesting Information is given by M. Buyat, the reporter of the Fine Arts Estimates for
ltlio, concerning the four subsidized
theatres in Paris. Daring 1908 the
receipts at the opera averaged night-
lj a little over $3,400, M. Alvarez is
the best paid of the regular company,
receiving $4-iti Eor each performance,
while Caruso receives a minimum of
$2,000 every time he sings, The reporter, however, shows that there has
been a steady falling off during the
lasi eight years in the number of subscribers.
M. Buyat recommends for the Comedie Francaise Die re-establlshmenl
of the Reading Committee, composed
of members of the company, who will
subsequently be called upon to pass
judgment on the plays which they
present to the public. He approves of
the system according to which the
"secretaries" are allowed to take part
in the open-air performances ��t
Orange and elsewhere. "They thus
become really the comedians of the
nation," be writes, and lie cites a mot |
of Jules Clartie, director of the company, by which the Comedie Francaise is "comme une carosse royal
iiu'il s'agit de conduire en temps
d'automoblle."
The Opera Comique, according to
M. Buyat, is prosperous, its receipts
amounting on the average to $1250 a
night. The most popular operas are
"Manon," "Carmen," "Werther,"
"Mme. Butterfly," and "La Vie de
Boheme." The salaries of Mme.
Carre and Mile. Chenal are ?800 a
month: those of MM. Clement and
Bayle $1600 a month.
The situation at tho Odeon is better than it was for 1909, but M. An-
toine's management has not been an
unqualified success. M. Buyal advises M. Antoine to imitate the Theatre Francaise and to organ! ��� ��� a do t-
ble repertoire, classical and m" ������ n,
and a company d'ensemble.
El Paso, Tex., Jan. 4.���The Tor-
reon, Mexico, Enterprise, says;
The coming trouble between the
National railways of Mexico and the
American employees, which is expected to culminate on January 15,
may result in a complete tieup in
traffic at the American border. The
Mexican railways may sever their relations with American railroads on
that date.
Owing to liability to arrest and
I prosecution by the Mexican courts,
the men will not declare a strike, but
there is no law which prevents a man
who is not under contract from resigning.
The American unions in the United
States >-ill declare the Mexican railways to be "unfair" and tie them up

B.C.E.R.  PROFITS
BY FAIR CRITICISM
The readiness of the B.C. Electric
Railway to recognize the justice of
fair criticism by promptly announcing
measures of relici and improvement,
is a most gratifying feature of that
company's policy. Recently a good
deal of criticism has bene leveled at
the company for inadequate ear service and the company's answer is a
promise to spend half a million on
new cars of improved type, at once,
thirty-eight of which are to be put
into service in this city. The contrast between the attitude of the B.
C. Electric Hallway and that, say, of
the Toronto Street Railway, Is a
pleasant and satisfactory one.
In Ontario's capital when the street
railway is criticised���and that Is
about all the lime���it sits buck in
silent sttllenness and tells the public
in effect to go to.
Almost every one In this city gives
the B.C. Electric Hallway credit for
an honest Intention to provide an
adequate service, but even with the
best Intentions there are bound to be
weak spots in the management or in
the system and it does neither the
public nor the company an injury to
occasionally point these out in the
public press. There was room for a
good deal of Improvement in the running of some of the lines in the city
but since those defects have been
pointed out, there has been improvement. There Is yet room for further
improvement and doubtless in good
t imo it will come. On the part of
the company there Is an apparent disposition to meet the requirements of
the city and tills In itself bespeaks
a measure ol patience on the part of
the public.���Saturday Sunset.

in town and will be tried out some
time this week. Nobody here has seen
Gray play, but lie ls reported to be
one of the fastest wing men in the
business. It is also probable that
('looks will play on the forward line
in the next game.
If there is no change in the Weather I bore will be no game next Saturday with Westham Island as the local

this event will be postponed for u
week or two. By the time the nexc

Merchandise can't well Withstand the onslaught of
prices like these. They'll make vast piles of winter
Merchandise melt away like snow in the sun. We try
not to carry over a single item from one season to another, and we
don't intend to begin now.
We couldn't, even if we wanted to. Spring merchandise will soon be
pouring in like a torrent, and we'll need every square, foot of space we
can get. Our necessity affords you an unparalleled opportunity. Every
item gets a going-out price that's little short of astounding. Bargains
are of so rare and wonderful a sort that you can't afford to neglect their
call.   READ EVERY PRICE AND PROFIT IMMEASURABLY.

Mrs. E. J. Fader has returned from

Mrs. Fader's condition has greatly ini-
pi oved.
The presence of ice in the river
continues to block most of the navigation. All the boats have cancelled their regular runs and only a
few tugs can be seen on the river.
Owing to the l.ulu island bridge being closed so long, some of the sawmills have not many logs on hand,
and if the ice remains for a week or
two there is liable to be a severe
shortage. The ice will also affect
the market next Friday to some extent, as most of the produce offered
for sale at market comes from points
up the river.
Your box in a safety deposit vault
is a private affair. No one has access
to it but yourself. And besides, it
is safe and that is a factor worth
something to you. Then it costs
only a small sum to rent one of these
boxes, a surprisingly small sum. Let
us tell you about it. Dominion Trust

a visit to tlie secretary of the board
of trade yesterday. Mr. McAllum
speaks very hopefully of the prospect
of striking oil near his town. No
borings have been made as yet, but
he says that a company has been
formed with the intention of making
a thorough examination of the company, to see if there is anything more
than indications of oil at Clayburn.
Mr. McCallum is a member of the recently-formed Matsqui-Sumas board
of trade.
