mistic Address Says Nations Are Weary of War.
Montreal, Dec. 21.���"International
Arbitration" was tlie subject of an address delivered by Senator Dandurand
before the Nomad's club last night. It
was the opinion of the lecturer, that
the next twenty-flve years would see
an absolute revolution in International
relatione, with the probable abolition
of war and the realization of universal
peace.
Senator Dandurand stated that
since the first Hague congress In 1898
eighty treaties had been signed by nations recognizing the piinclple of arbitration. These treaties, however,
made exception of questions affecting
territory and national honor and vital
Interest, and the senator declared iliac
these exceptions must be got iid of.
He pointed out that the term "national honor" savored of the duel of former davs. Tie duel was dying in
France,'Italy and Spain. It had died
among the Anglo-Saxon nations. Yet
here were civilized nations still obsessed by the phrases of "national
honor" and "vital interest." Tho
speaker scorned the idea of civilized
nations settling their disputes by the
old savage method of brute force.
The second Hague conference met
In 1907, at the reiuest of the interparliamentary union for peace, wliich
had sat the previous year at St. Louis.
The congress sat at The Hague,
cvhere, by a curious coincidence, rhere
had been born the first man who
wrote on the theme of International
law, namely Grotius. Forty-six nations were invited and forty-four were
represented. It was quite a parliament and numbered 256 representatives. Its very meeting showed the
possibilities of an international parliament.
Out of forty-four nations represented at  the congress, thirty-five   voted
i for   obligatory   arbitration,   but   this
I was not yet binding because the vote
I was not unanimous. But it showed big
j sti ides towards the realization of uni-
I versal   peace.    This  second  congress
renewed emphasi/ation on the need o:'
disarmament  and  laid  stress  on   the
view that a permanent court of arbitration should sit at Tlie Hague.
At present the obstacle to universal
peace, it has been stated, was net the

more expensive to the government
than hud been expected, and some of
the forestry journals estimate the to-'
tal destruction of timber last year ut
$175,090,000;
Tbe department ot agriculture has
leen  receiving  a long list, of  claims

Iers who, in view of the proposal to

i congress, think they hud as well be
rewarded, too.
Twenty Thousand on List.
The regular list of departmental
fire fighters, those reguhuly in the
forest service and tliose employe I
temporarily, numbers 20,000. All
these have been paid for tbe work
they did and have heen fully compensated except the unfortunates who
were either killed or seriously injured In the fires. There were a
large number of these who were merely temporary employees, and who
were either killed or hurt so badly
that they had to be sent to the hospital.

��� ,   of careful attention
Owing to a curious provision of tho
law the depurtment was forbidden to
pay tbe hospital bills of these victims
or even from shipping their bodies
home when they were killed in the
service. It was proposed to ai;ply to
congress for reimbursement for these
men or their families. i
Willing to Be Paid.
But the present list of willing reel; ients of the government money is
even larger. In one community there
are 17on applicants for pay on a single list.
The department holds that a good
manv of these people woul 1 have
fought the fire anyhow, and that it is
not up to the government to pay
them. Many of them lived in the districts surrounded by fire and they
fought tbe fire to save their homes.
There will be no recommendation
made by tbe department as to the
compensation of these volunteer firemen.
A right merry Christmas amid snow
and Ice at un altitude of 5000 to 6000
feet above tea level. Outside the
snow lies six feet deep, piled up on
either side of the mountain pass,
hardened in the center by tne passage
of the never ending procession of
sleighs.
Everywhere are Icicles of fantastic
form and shai e. We are on a plateau
on the mountain side, that from a distance seems to be a collection of tiny
houses clinging to the huge mountain.
At our back are magnificent pines,
around are gentle slopes and in front!
the famous toboggan run, where it is
possihle to obtain a speed even greater than the fastest express train. Tbe
rays of the genial sun bathe us in a
glorlus Alpine sunshine, and the invigorating effect of the sun-laden atmosphere is observable on both young
of and old.
Only a few years ago the suggestion of Switzerland as a winter haunt,
except to a few keen sportsmen or
health seeklig invalids would have
caused one to shudder at the thought
of spending wee's in these ice and
snowbound regions. The hotels and

field ham from the table . f his grandmother, the late Queen Victoria. I
Every year she had fifty, or more
hams shipped direct from Smith-
field. I
The hams shipped to King George
were corn-fed hogs especially cure 1
and prepared for bim. The box containing the hams will go to England I

Now all is changed. Everywhere
one meets happy, ruddy-faced visitors,
who have come here to worship the
gods of pleasure and sport and to Indulge in a real good old-fashioned
Christmas. By day every one is engaged in some kind of sport. At ni^ht

entertainment. At Christmas the

There are  extra special  Christmas

Tobaganning at Sixty Miles an Hour.'
It is certainly a grand spectacle to
see a sixty mile an hour racer take
a curve or maybe the Horseshoe Ben.I
at a speed that threatens to prove a
breakneck pace should a spill occur.
Sometimes it happens through an error of judgment in taking a bank that
the toboggan is turned completely
round and the rider finishes the
course in a backward position, or
through a spill finds himself buried
head first in the snow.
The crown prince of Germany, is a
keen bobber, and often spends part
of the winter at St. Moritz. In 190(1
he finished third on the Kismet for
the Derby. One of the competitions
now is for a hansome cup bearing the
name of the crown prince.

safer course than the Cresta there is

sents certain difficulties, but these are
by no means insuperable. One way
of making room for two new tracks
would be to do away with the present
sidewalk on the landward side of the
street and lay one track In its place,
then remove the line of wharves and
depots on the river side further out
into the stream, for the other track.
In fact this is the only way we can
see of solving the problem that musl
very soon arise. But whatever plan
may be adopted in this respect it is
necessary for the council to keep the
probability of such a demand for accommodation clearly before them in
connection with any dealings with
land, leases or improvements on or
near to Front street. We assume, of
course, that tie council would welcome and do all it reasonably could
to encourage the entrance of any new
railways into the city. It requires no
argument to show that any proper expenditure in this direction would be
wise and profitable.
We consider that the council should
go even a step further and consider,
almost at once, whether It would not
be good policy to arrange for tlie various railways to run into one central
station conveniently located for the
city. We believe that if such a
scheme were formulated, the Great
Northern railway would gladly consent to run their trains into it; and
we do not Imagine that the Canadjan
Pacific would object to do the same.
Then, too, lt Is pretty certain that
the Canadian Northern Pacific, which
is now wrestling with the difficulty
of getting their line into the city,
would welcome any such facility for
station accommodation, whilst the
Grand   Trunk  Pacific  would  possibly

cases were awaiting trial on September 30.

A team of Vancouver bowlers
wandered over last night and gave
the local pin smashers the worst beating that tljey have received for many
muuns. The score rolled by. the Vancouver men was the highest that has
been rolled on the alleys this year
and it is doubtful if such a score was
over made In this city before. The
lowest man on their team had an
average of 174 and the highest 191.
Murchie rolled a good game for the
local exponents, but he had poor support.
The following Is the score:

The London Sporting Life, one of
the leading sporting papers of the
world, is trying to have the famous
"kidney punch" abolished. While the
Queensberry rules permit the "kidney punch," the English paper takes
advantage of the ambiguity of the
wording to demand a revision and
consequent abolition of the blow.
Such blows, Sporting Life declares,
are not fair and are excessively dangerous. The paper points out that
there Is nothing in the rules to prevent a lighter from striking his opponent over tho kidneys with the heel
of his hand, or the outside of the
hand, which ls entirely unprotected by
the padded glove.

A Royal Golfer.
Princess Alexander, of Teck, is the
latest member of the royal family to
take to golf. Fond of open-air life
and outdoor games and active exercise, she is a good walker, rides fairly well, and may often be seen driving by herself about the country lanes
in a light cart drawn by a handsome
pony. She plays croquet well, and
now she is learning the fine points of
golf fiom the professional of the Koyal club at Windsor. Only daughter
of the Duchess of Albany, the Princess's marriage to the handsome and
popular Prince Alexander took place
In 1904. and it was a true love match.
The prince and princess now liave
three children, two sons and a daughter. Tlie princess is noted for tlie
fact that she is one of |'ie most studious of living princesses.

intolerable heat and the fumes of
deadly gases prevented any rescue
work.
The explosion jammed tbe cages in
the shafts and interfered with the
ventilating apparatus.
With the lirst news of the accident,
friends and relatives of the men employed in the mine rushed to the
scene. When the (lames poured out
of the main shaft many women fainted and were carried away. Hundreds
of persons were crowded around the
pit-mouth by the time the fire began
to subside, and the efforts of the rescue parties to enter the workings
were hampered. The people about
the shaft were restrained with the
greatest difficulty.
When the fire had receded far
enough to permit of an attempt, a
small rescue party entered the shafts.
Not far from the entrance the bodies
of twenty men.were discovered. The.
were lifted out and borne away to
an improvised morgue to await identification.
The rescuers found the mine blocked and could penetrate no farther.
i They were forced to retreat. A larger
rescue party Is being organized ana
will endeavor to force its way into
the mrne.
The work Is very dangerous, as the
fire is still raging in the workings,
and it is feared that further explosions may occur. I
The cause of the explosion has not
been determined. Although the extent of tho flre has not been fully
ascertained. It is believed that the
whole Interior of the mine is in flames.
Mine officials hope thnt the men may
have escaped to a gallery which is
not burning and have walled themselves in. This, lt Is believed, is the
only chance that anyone ln the mine
escaped death.

Qualities Which Prevent Their Being
Counterfeited Successfully.
(From the Scientific American )
About the year 1819 a great outcry
was raised against the Hank of England for not adopting a style of note
that could not 1 e imitated and at the
same time preventing the sacrifice of
life which at that period was common
the punishment for forgery being
death. Tlie subject at last became
so pressing that the government appointed commissioners to Investigate
the cause of thc numerous forgeiies
and whether a mode could be devised
whereby the forgery of bank notes
might be prevented.
Previous to this investigation the
directors of the hank had heen et.
i deavorlng to remedy the evil, many
'plans having heen submitted to them,
I all of which they were obliged to re
j ject.
The bank placed before the commis
i sioners ISO different projects that hai

j this labor was the bank note of to

The color of the raper Is jeciltar
and cannot he imitated exactly by

The Frenchman's Christmas bill of
fare, for instance, is extensive and
varied, and in manv respects quite
different from our own. The great
Gallic national dishes are truffled
turkey and black puddings, of which
every Frenchman who can afford such
luxuries makes a very hearty meal at
Yule-tide. Then tbere is a wonderful Strasburg pie whose constituent
parts are truffles and livers of fattened geese���pate de- fole gras; boar's
head ielly plentifully stuffed with pis-
tachois; oysters, lobster, and crayfish; and last, but by no means least,
snails and frog legs.
In Russia the Christmas meal consists largely of two dishes���one of
which is porridge served with honey,
and the other a curious compound of
stewed pears, apples, oranges, grapes
and cherries, sweetened with honey j
and served cold. To this meal the
Muscovite sits down with a plentiful
Bupply of vodka on the side.

Henry Maloy, a freshman 1 nthe University of Kansas, told his father of
his desire to attend the University of
Kansas last September, the latter oppose! the plan. Finally, however, he
consented under certain conditions,
which were that he reduce his expenses to a minimum.
"I'm going to watch your work and
examine your expense account," he
said. "It you make good ln both, I'll
see you through the four years, but lf
you fall to economize or 'flunk' on anv
of your studies the first term, I'll pot
furnish you money any longer."
And now, after a test of twelve
weeks. Malov snvs that 75 cents a
week hos paid his grocery bills,
i "Bread and butter, beans and break-
' fast foods comprise most of my diet,"
he said, "and I have Just a.tj good
health here as I ever had at home."
