CHINESE  TONGS   HAVE
BURIED  THE   HATCHET
C.N.P.B. COMPANY WINS
ARBITRATION CASE
Edward Smith. Who Asked $10,000 for
His Mount Lehman Ranch, Is
Awarded Only $2500.
The award of the arbitrators has
just been made in the case which was
heard last week by Judge Lampman,
the arbitrator appointed by tlie court;
.1. II. Diamond, appointed by the railway company, and \V. Norman Hole,
K.C, selected by the claimant, Edward
Smith. The land in question, through
which the Canadian Northern I'aelde
railway ls constructing its right of
way, consists of part of some twelvo
acres at Mount Lehman, witli frontage on the Fraser river, and used by
the claimant as a brickyard.
A considerable amount of evidence
was given and the case occupied two
days in its hearing. The claimant
placed the value of his property at
W.,000 and urged that he would be
entirely put out of business by tbe
coming ot the railway through his
property. The witnesses for the com
pany submitted that hand worked
brickyards such as this were a losing
proposition. F. J. Coulthard, the
company's valuer and right of way
agent, placed the value of the land
taken and the consequential damage at
$2600 and this was the amount of
the offer made hy the company.
The arbitrators have awarded this
sum, $2500, to tho claimant.
The decision was not unanimous,
Judge Bole dissenting.
J. R. Grant (Corbould & Grant) appeared for the companv, and J. F.
Russell (Russell, Uusseii & Manning-
ton) for the claimant.
New York, Dec. 30���Peace has
come to Chinatown at last. With all
the ceremonial display that might
characterize an international treaty,
the On I.oong Tong and the Foui
Brothers Society, solemnly affixed tho
seals tind signatures to a document
which re-establishes friendly relations
after years of bloody warfare.
ln "the shadow of tlie gieat joss
wbicli dominates the temple of tbo
city and with the child ruler of the
Fiowerv Kingdom represented by two
attaches of the imperial nation at
Washington and Consul General Yeo
Yueing, tbe signs were affixed and
the signers shuffle 1 away to feast in
honor of the new-made peace.
The restoration of diplomatic rela
tions followed Interchanges of ceremonial visits between tbe high con
trading parties. Under the leadership of the imperial representatives, a
delegation from On Duong's court
visited tbe Four Brothers' headquarters and on returning ito then-
own building received a similar visit.
All parties to the contract then
traversed tbe quarter to the temple
and the treaty was signed.
Aviation Field, Los   Angeles,   Dec.
30.���Fearing that through some tech-j
nical  error  or   oversight  the  height]
record of 11,474 feet, which he made'
last  Monday,  might, not  stand, Arch.
Iloxsey, tlie California aviator soared I
into tlie air today and broke all the5
world's altitude records but  his own.
Carried  Two Barographs.
Tlie   two   barographs   he carried
with him resigtered a height of 10,6751
feet.    This is nearly 1000 feet under'
the mark lie established Monday, but
It ls only 7(1 feet above thfe record of
Legageux, made at    Pau,    France,   a^
short time ago.    A new record must, j
however, exceed the former mark at ���
least  500 feet.    Therefore, If tlie In- j
ternational  Federation o'f Aero clubs
refuses to recognize llozsey's feat of |
Monday as official, Legagneux will re-'
main the record bolder and   the Call
fornlan  will  lose,  besides the glory,
prizes which aggregate nearly $5,000.
He was in the air three hours and
seventeen  minutes, or eight minutes I
longer than A. L. Welch.
Satisfied with Present Honors.
An  effort  was  made  after  Hoxsey
landed to induce him to ascend tomor-!
row morning and try to suppress the j
endurance record made by Tabuteau
in France  today, but he said:    "I'd
have to be in tlie air more than ten I
hours and travel at least 450 miles to;
heat the Frenchman, and I don't feel |
like trying.   I must be a poor hand at
reading figures or I would have gone j
higher,   much   higher,  today.    I   had
an aneroid barometer strapped to my
wrist.    Besides, 1 read both the barometer and barograph figures at 12.575
before I started down."
Sky  Was Clear.
Mr. Hoxsey's flight today was ao-|
complished under the most favorable
weather conditions. Tlie sky was at
all times so clear that be was always
within tlie view of tlie thousands who
crowded the grandstand. He travelled
a distiince estimated at nearly 85
miles and repeated Ins feat of yesterday by sailing over and above the
summit of Mount Wilson. While
hovering over the peak be darted and
dipped and did tbe spiral glide, flirt-
inn with and finally spurning the forbidding   CrUgS   Ot   Uit  mounluin   ^g   he
sped away.
His barograph, when unsealed,
showed he had dipped down within
400 feet of the Mount Wilson's peak,
wliich is B800 feet above the sea. i
Then tbe nee lie marked a steadily
ascending li--r> upon the chart as he .
climbed steadily upward while beating;
back against the 15-mile breeze to thej
fleld.
Long Distance Record.
Buc,     France,    Dec.     30.���Maurice
Tabuteau, contesting for the Michel in |
cup, broke the world's record for distance today, covering 302.(lfi miles in a j
continuous flight of seven hours and i
forty-seven minutes.
Cordova, Alaska, Dec. 30.���Forest
Banger George Johnson returned from
an inspection of tlie Bering glacier
today and confirmed the reports of
great damage done by the flood which
burst from the glacier last month.
Because of the heavy fall of snow
he was unable to reach the chain of
lakes ahove the glacier to determine
the cause of the phenomenal flood,
but he verified stories of enormous
damage done to the large sweep of
country between the glacier and the
sea.
The ranger also Investigated the
whereabouts of H. S. Wise, of Kayak,
and Smith, for whose safety fears
were entertained.
Wise and Smith escaped injury, but
underwent thrilling experiences and
endured unusual hardship"in making
their escape from the Icebergs that
swept down the Bering river halley.
HUNGRY   FOR   WORK.
North Vancouver    Reporters    Protest
Against Closed School Meetings.
North Vancouver, Dec. 30. ��� The
school trustees held tlieir regular
meeting last night in the Central
school, ln the absence of the chairman, Mr. Steacy, Mr. McDowell presided, and the other trustees in attendance were Mr. Hav and Dr. Howell.
A letter was read from the local
press representatives desiring, in the
interests of the ratepayers of the city,
to be present at the various meetings
of the school trustees, "which," the
letter added, "we are at present unable to do owing to your meetings being held at Irregular hours and without any notice conveyed to us. We,
therefore, respectfully request that intimation of all meetings be* conveyed
to us to enable us to be present."
Mr. Hay said it would be impossible
to let reporters know of meetings got
up on half an hour's notice.
The chairman suggested that the
letter be left over till a full meeting
of the trustees, and this advice vtas
endorsed  by   Dr.   Howell.
Mr.   nny   added U\ut if there  were
; any changes in the regular meetings
| he thought the reporters should be informed of tbem.
Only Three Meetings In Interests   of
Aspirants for Civic Honors Will
Be Held���Dates Not Fixed.
That the labor campaign in the
civic elections will not be the whirlwind affair it was suppose.!, was the
opinion expressed yesterday by-
Walter Dodd, one of the candidates,
In conversation with a News representative yesterday.
A good deal of quiet propaganda
work has been carried on, and will
be continued during the next two
weeks. This will form the backbone
of the campaign. In addition, it is
proposed to hold three public meetings, one in Sapperton, one in tlie
centre of the city, and one in the
west end. Tlie dates for these are not
yet decided.
These will be only meetings under
tiie labor auspices at which the candidates will speak. It is probable,
however, that tbey will be invited to
explain their views at other meetings,
and if so, tliey will of course accede
to such requests.

Pioneer Woman Dies.
Seattle,  Dec. 30.���Mrs.  Mary    Ann
Denny, widow of the founder of Seattle, and the first white woman to set
foot in  the settlement, died at her
home here today, aged 88 years.
.Athens, Dec. 30.���The Central committee of Albanian students have published a warm appeal to civilized
Europe against tbe tyranny of tbe
Young Turks which is, they say, much
greater than tinder the ex-Sultan
Abdul Hamid. They protest against
the suppression of journals and
schools, the exiling of all persons
suspected of liberal opinions, and the
"monstrous and murderous outrages"
ou the Albanian peasants.
The committee is not Important In
itself, but the appeal Is a symptom of
the growing disposition of Albanian j
to revolt from Turkey.
The report published in the Paris
Matin that un alliance had been concluded between Italy and Austria, by
which Montenegro and Albania were
to fall in the Italian sphere of interest, and Macedonia in the Austrian, is
utterly discredited here.
International Swimming.
Norwich, Conn., Dec. 30.���Negotiations are practically complete for u
.swimming meet between Yale, Brown
nnd McGill university of Canada. The
triangular and international event will
be held In the Yale pool If schedule 1.
McGill's team has never competed in
the States before, and there ^re few
athletic contests of any kind between
the principal Canadian collee-es and
the latter American Institutions.
Swimming Is a comparatively young
sport at Brown, but the Providence
institution has held Intercollegiate
aquatic meets before.
New York City Has Labor Trouble on
Its Hands.
New York, Dec. 30.���New York
city experienced today the first municipal strike in years, when the fiie-
men on the city's ferry boats which
ply between Manhattan and Soutli
Brooklyn' and Staten Island went on
strike because the municipal government reduced the number of firemen
on tlie boats to cut down expenses.
Commuters on Staten Island were unable to reach Manhattan except by
making a wide detour into New Jersey. The city officials have hired one
hundred longshoremen to take the
places of the strikeiM and they are
being instructed in their duties.
Found a Crevasse of Glacier.
Valdez, Alaska, Dec. 30.���Last summer W. H. Creary end a party of
miners found the bones of several
horses with pack saddles In a crevasse
of the Valdez glacier. A report that
the bones of men were found also is
not true. The lost pack train had no
connection with the stampede of 1898,
when a number of men perished in
crevasses of the glacier. Horses were
not used then.
Art  Expert  So  Characterizes  Productions  of  D'Aulbys.
Tours. France, Dec. 30.���The de
fence played another card at the opening of today's session of the trial of
"Count" and "Countess" D'Aulby De
Gatigny, charged with swindling, by
revealing the fact that M. Belleuse,
the art expert, called by the prosecution to pass upon the authenticity of
the defendantes' pictures is now
awaiting trial on a charge of conducting a gambling house in Paris.
The appointment of this expert was
suggested by the complainant, the
Duchess De Choisoul-Praslin, formerly Mrs. Charles H. Paine, of Boston,
Belleuse characterized D'Aulby's
paintings as mostly worthless copies
and their owner as an audacious trafficker playing upon the credu Ity cf
art collectors.
M. Bernard asked for the immediate designation of another expert. The
incident caused a tumult in the court
room. Bernard followed up this disclosure by calling M. Desmoulin, a
painter, who testified that of such of
D'Aulby's pictures as he had seen one
certainly was an original masterpiece
and the others were excellent copies.
Pioneer of B. C. Dead.
Nanaimo, Dec. 31.���A. R. Johnston,
i senior member of the firm of A.  R.
Johnston & Co., wholesale and retail
i grocers, died here yesterday at   the
��� age  of   sixty-nine.    He   had   res ded
1 here for the past fifty years, during
thirty of which he had engaged    in
the grocery business. During the first
few  years  he  spent In  this  country
he engaged in mining ventures.
Indicted Banker Takes Poison,
Then Walks Boldly to Trial.
New York, Dec. 30���With head |
erect, shoulders squared and eyes,
levelled at the battery of cameras
trained on him, Joseph G. Robin, the
Indicted banker, stepped from his
sister's home this morning to face arraignment, calm in the knowledge
that he had swallowed a dose of
hyoscine, the deadly alkaloid with
which Dr. Crippen killed his wife,
Belle Elmore. He collapsed before be
could be taken Into court with the exclamation: "I am a dead man; I've
taken poison tablets."
The case was postponed In tne
greatest excitement; a stomach pump
was hurriedly brought into play and
the sick man was carried flrst to the
prison hospital and later to Bellevue,
where he lies tonight in the prison
ward. No charge of attempted sii-
cide is entered against him, and lt is
thought he will recover, although the
action of hyoscine is slow and has
much weakened his vitality.
The time at which Robin took the
drug Is approximately fl*ed by the
testimony of Dr. Austin Flint, retained by William Jerome, his counsel.
Dr. LoulBe Robinovitch, hls sister, and
two detectives who rode with him
from his sister's house to the criminal
building.
Dr. Flint told the court thnt as
nearly as he could Judge the poison
had been In Robin's system about
three-quarters of an hour when he
collapsed. The two detectives were
positive their prisoner swallowed
nothing on the way to court.
The court of revision held in the
court house on Thursday to decide
on certain appeals made against the
assessment of lands in the New Westminster district did not result In any
important changes being made.
There were about ten appeals altogether and in all but one the judges
of the court of revision upheld the
assessment fixed by Provincial Assessor J. W. Crelghton. The single case
involved some property belonging to
Judge W. N. Bole, K.C, at tbe north
j end of Harrison lake, and the change
made will not amount to as much as
|5 per year in the taxes to be collected.
Last year the court of revision upheld all the assessments made by
Assessor Creighton, With the exception of one or two pieces of property
concerning which some doubt existed
as to the province's power to tax.

chief in connection with the dlsturbr

He paid a $20 fine.
BELIEVE   MRS.  EDDY
WILL   RETURN  TO   LIFE
New York, Dec. 30.���Mrs. Augusta
Stetson, formerly a director of the
Church of Christian Scientis s, said
last night tbat she expected Mrs.
Eddy would yet demonstrate her victory over deatli.
"I believe," she said, "that Mrs.
Eddy will make a manifestation, that
she wlll reveal herself to me and to
the outside world. The same situation exists today as when Jesus of
Nazareth was buried. After three
days he manifested himself to prove
that there Is life after death. Mrs.
Eddy will do the same, for she occupies in the world today precisely
the same position that Jesus occupied
in his day.
"It may take longer for Mrs. Eddy
to pass through the experience of
material death and to demonstrate
the existence of everlasting life; it
may not occur for years, or it may occur tomorrow, but she will manifest
herself and all men shall frnow of it."
FIRE IN OLYMPIA
THREATENS NORTH END
Olympia, Dec.���Flre that started
early today in the rear of the Knights
of Pythias hall, a two story building
at Fourth aud Columbia streets, destroyed that structure, the city fire
barn, a grocery store and another
establishment, and threatened the
whole north end of Olympia.
The firemen fought hard to save
their own building, but failed. A high
wind carried large burning brands,
and but for a downpour of ra'n ihe
flre must have wrought wide havoc.
DOCKMEN ON STRIKE.
No Ships Being Loaded or Discharged

Barcelona, Spain, Dec. 30.���The
strike of doekmen nnd coalheavers

completely. No ships are being load-
el or discharged. The American and
German owners have petitioned tho
government to send troops to the
waterfront to enable them to remove

Denver Man Tells of Starving Out
Asthma and Bright's Disease.
Denver, Dec. 30.���According to his
own statement, a voluntary fast of
four weeks has cured James E.
Dougherty, assistant secretary of the
state btueau of child and animal protection, ;.f asthma and Bright disease. Ee had suffered from the disease for litteen years.
"I drank all the water I wanted,"
he said. "In two weeks the asthma,
left me. When the doctor said the
fasting should cease, I began to live
on orange juice and' later on coarser
foods. On Christmas I ate turkey and
all the fixings."
LAST SHOW OF THE YEAR
IS PLEASING TO PATRONS
Big Audience Appreciates "The Time,
the Place and the Girl"���
Fancy Dancing.
A full bouse greeted the presentation of "The Time, the Place and the
Girl" at the opera house last evening, and the show was certainly deserving of the patronage I, received,
for it was one of the best that has
been seen here this year and the year
has not long to run.
ihe acting of Amanda Hendricks,
who took the part of Molly, the nurse,
and the Impersonation of the gambler
by George Ebner, were the two big
hits of the evening. While they were
on the stage the audience was perfectly satisfied and when they were
off the stage the audience looked forward to the time when they would
come on again.
Of course there were other good
actors in the play, but Molly ami
Johnny were certainly the stars.
The songs were all smeared witft
whiskers, but the setting ln whicb
they were sung added a certain charm
which made them palatable and the
audience showed their appreciation.
Novel features of the entertainment were the dancing of Jeanetta
Paterson, who took the part of Mrs.
Talcott, and the acting of Pedro, an
organ grinder desperately in love witli
the widow lady aforementioned.
Miss Paterson showed herself a finished dancer, and although her act
was out of the ordinary run ot ballet
work, lt seemed to please.
Ogden Wright, as the organ grinder,
did some flne acting when the widow
lady rejected his suit. His. part had
been a comic one, but ln the burst of
passionate acting with which be
closed his appearance on the s'age,
he got entirely away from that viewpoint And assumed a tragic role wltli
conaiderable ability. vm

northern part of Europe and from the

be maintained  until  the close of the

activity has continued to a later date1 Bishop de Pencier
than in any other season.    An influx
of   36,000   people    per   montli    would
mean a  total immigration of 432,000,1
or more than twice Hie number who

It Is too soon to determine Hie respective proportions of Hie invading

A Change From Other Days.
These figures in themselves give an
indication of the rapidity with which
the west is filling up its vacant areas.
But they do not be:.in to tell the
whole story. Tbey deal with numbers alone, admittedly a poor basis
on which to estimate tlie importance
of an influx of immigrants. The quality or capability of tbe newcomers is
of infinitely greater concern. One
family of a certain type is more valuable to the country at large, and tlie
west in particular, than a dozen families of the sort who formerly found
their way to Canada with the assistance of booking agencies and other institutions in which a policy was evolved from tbe study of the a idlng machine.   It is not possible to draw spe-
niarriage of exceptional interest!

The Potato Merchant and Auctioneer.
The Portuguese is essentially it
pleasure-lover. He i.s not. especially
devoted to the theatre, but. takes
pleasures much (n the s:tme way as
the Spaniard, although Ms taste In regard to bullfights is by no means so
san. uitiary. In the Spanish fight gore
is the predominant feature, and in the
Portuguese it is the display of elegant
horsemanship���the bull i. never
killed.
The bull ring at  Lisbon is situated
at the extreme end   of   the   famous
Aveneila di  Liberdale,  which  lias recently been I lie scene of the moj fie
vere fighting between the Republican
and   .Monarchist  troops.      On    a   fete
day, when    the    bullfight   i.s te take
place iand tiiis is generally on a Sunday), the concourse of people is en-
ormous,  and   a   stranger    might   well
Imagine  that an  infantile  revolution
had broken out, for from early morn
ing until tlie time of the bullfight, at
| two or three in tlie afternoon, there is
| :i    succession    of    exploding    bombs,
1 shells   and   rockets,   tired    in    open
spaces, and especially in tlie vicinity
i of the railway station and the famous
j Ealy-Poly Bquare, tlie stones of which
| are  laid  in  such   an erratic   fashion
j that  tliey resemble the waves cf the
sea.  and   whichever   way   the  tourist
walks across tliem    lie    involuntarily
raises his foot as though to step over
a rise in tlie ground.
All over Lisbon, and especially
along the Avened-.t. there is a curious
fashion in pavements and all kinds of
weird scrolls anj twisting, twirling.
and dragon-like figures are made in
tessellated tiles���either white upon
black, or black upon white.
On tlie days   of bullfights the   victors are escorted through the streets
in   gaily-decorated   carts    with    their
lady admirers in startling  costumes,
and   tlie   constant   cracking    of   fireworks mingles with tlie cheers of tie
crowd.     A    Portuguese    bullfight   is
j worth seeing, and even the   Humani-
j tarian League could .'ind litt e to ca-
j \il at.    It is certainly no more cruel
than fox hunting or stag stalking in
Great  Britain.    Tlie bullfighters earn
large salaries, and many of tbem are
popular  heroes.      Some of tliem  ae
quite wealthy men.
Tlie living picture craze has long
ago seized upon the Poituguese in a
manner which would astonish the
owners of picture palaces, successful
as tbey are in tills country.
From noon until tlie small hours
of tlie morning the streets of Lisbon
and other large towns aie a perfec
pandomonlum with the shrieking cf
steam-blown organs at the doors of
these scores of picture lalices almost side by sr.ie m nic ��� .,���������� thoroughfares. The price of admission ii
exceedingly low, for, although the
Portuguese is a great pleasure-lover,
lie likes to get enjoyment as cheaply
as possible and to have as much _jr
bis money as he can. Tlie shows are
continuous, and one can stay as long
as one likes, or rather as long as one
can stand the din of a forty horsepower engine blaring out every noisy
tune that was ever composed.
The heat in these badly ventilated
long and narrow rooms is insufferable; tlie air is thick with tobaccj
fumes, for everyone smokes, and tlie
refreshment bars and food stalls
therein do an enormous trade. Tlie
Portuguese looks well after "little
Mary." When some popular or polit.-
cal scene is thrown on the screen���
and tlie films by the way, are very
fllckery and bad from constant us3���
there is sometimes a demonstration. |
for a very little hues on the loweri
Ki tiers, *f*\*iO are the ��, eat patrons of{
these resorts, to a scilmmage.
Like tlie Spaniard, again the Portuguese is a born gambler, and be it in
bets over tbe success of any particular bullfight, or at cards, ou at thej
ever-lasting lottery, there is always!
some money to go in those directions. ]
Tliey can be no doubt that, if the government allowed It, roulette and other games which are now sacred to
Monte Carlo, would nourish in Lisbon
and other Portuguese cities: and before tlie revolution broke out there
was said to be a project on foot for
the starting of a gambling Casino on
Monte Carlo lines at Funchal, in tbe
Island of Madeira, one of the few colonial possessions of the new republic,
lt remains to lie seen what tbe present administration may have to say as
to deriving revenue for an impoverished country from this source, and
whether a concession to allow gambling will be sranted.

was obtained from the council to use
the Carnegie library one night every
week lor this purpose. At that time,
however, there did nol appear to be
very many enthusiasts in the town,
and :is advantage was not taken ofl
the accommodation ottered, tho matter lapsed.
Ai present there Is an informal
chess or checkers game played In tho
librar) almosl every day, and here
the idea ol forming a strong club had
Iti birth. Edward Hoult, curator of
the city ball, is one of the adherents
"i the game, and be states thai ll Is
the Intention soon to call a public
meeting, to be held probably in the
board ol trade room, when all Interested parties will be Invited to attend and discuss the proposal.
Thai   there are  in   the  city  a   very]
large number of people who    would
take advantage of tbe club is    Mr. !
Hoult's opinion,   New Westminster is
probably the oni) city of its si/e   In !
Canada   where such   a   club  does  not I
exist, and he believes tbat there is S��
real demand for one.
The idea Is to lent one or two well
appointed rooms in a central location,
preferably on Columbia street, and as1
the modus oi erandl ol the games is
Blmple In the extreme, the expense
entailed would be very small.
While there are facilities for playing chess and checkers al the Car-
ni ic library, tbe accommodation is
limited, and the location docs not
commend Itself to the players, who
are mostl; men advanced In years, to
whom climbing the hill is a serious
consideration. Tbe club rooms will
therefore be located somewhere on
the rial.
A> there are nol too many places
In the city where rational tonus of
amusement may be Indulged in, it is
to be hoped that this proposal will
meet with the support it deserves. All
who are Interested are Invited to communicate with Mr. Hoult at tbe city
ball.

third strike on Harry Stovey In 1887
or '88.
On the afternoon when Stovey star-
! red, Beatln was i�� grand shape and
| had the Athletics three to one in the���
eighth. In the ninth, with two gone,,
three Athletics pranced about on the
bases with Stovey up. A single
meant a tie game; a two-base hit
meant defeat.
Heatin  shot   the  first  one  straight
across.
"Strike!"
Heatin grinned as he wound up and
who   whipped a hot one across on tlie In-
���'ust aa Christmas is essentially the
"me for festivity, and Lent the season when it is meant that one should
mortify the flesh, Bo is the New Year
the psychologic moment for turning
over a new leaf and forming a number ol gootl resolutions wliich shall
make llie a better and a sweeter
thing, The nature of tlie habits wliich
are the subject of these resolutions is
l as varied as the minds of men, but
perhaps the commonest of all is the i
determination to eliminate or curtail
the habit of indulgence in alcoholic
stimulants comprehensively described
by the generic word booze.
At this point, it may be in order to
digress long enough to explain thut
this word is not, as is commonly supposed, a vulgar modern slang term,
bul is on tbe contrary extracted from
the vocabulary of the cultured bb far
back as tbe days of de Qulncey, that
neat master of elegant English, who
uses  it  on  various occasions.
The  result,  to   use  the  language  of
the people, is the advent of the water
wagon. To the uninitiated, this
phrase suggests a vision of a clumsy
conveyance proceeding al a Bnake-llke
crawl over a dusty road, squirting as I
ii goes streams of aqua more or less
purn into tlie gutters, whence it quickly betakes Itself into the city drains,
thus affording another illustration of
tbe Scriptural dictum, to them who i
have, etc.
But the phrase as used here signifies something very different. It
means simply that the gentleman who
lias climbed thereon has thereby expressed his opinion that hereafter be
will refresh his parched tongue only
witli that beverage wliich is without
money and without price, which
bringetb nol the glad, and which
cheers but not  inebriates.
No more will be Invest liis money
in nose paint or red-eye, no more be
subject to lliat peculiar optical iliu
sion wliich creates tor bim strange
fauna in haunts far removed lrom tl
wooded wild. No longer will he the
ruby vintage quaff, surveying the
while bis strangely distorted Image
in n glittering expanse of bevelled
mirror.
Instead, he will spend bis evenings
henceforth in the bosom of bis family,
comporting himself with that dignity
which belits the divine origin of his
image. On occasion be will indulge in
the mild diversion of a visit to the
moving picture theatre, passing en
route the Sign of tlie Cygnet witli
averted bead, and congratulating himself meant ime on tlie growing embonpoint of liis bank account.
Tbe prospect is a pleasing one, int
halt ! There is a reverse to every
medal, ami that ronimemoratina ; li������

exception to the rule. The Water

ject to many an unpleasant jolt anu

from liis perch with disastrous results.
When this happens, he descends from
hls seat  with a horrible splash.
Therefore, It behoves tlie wary to
take thought and consider before be
blteth off more than he can chew, for
a resolution broken is a poor certificate of character and the return to a
condemned habit a capitulation without honor, which layeth one open to
much scorn and contumely.

MARKET   j
REPORT   {
The New Year market is usually a
light one, and yesterday, although it
compared very favorably with the corresponding market a year ago, was
the reverse of the Christmas event.
The attendance of buyers was small,
and the supply in all lines was also
scanty. Demand, however, rather exceeded supply, and practically everything was sold readily at a fairly high
price, with the exception of eggs,
wliich dropped to a minimum price of
45c per dozen and were easily disposed of at that figure.
Potatoes, the price of which remained practically the same as they bave
been for the past two weeks, were offered in small <|tiantities, und found
a ready market.
There was a good supply of eastern
dressed turkeys and geese, but no
local birds. Local dressed chickens
on the otber hand were fairly plentiful, an.l sold readily.,
Only medium quantities of beef,
lamb and mutton, and pork were offered, and there wns a brisk demand
in all of these lines.
There was a good display of cut and
pot flowers, which found many buyers,
and the usual auction sale of cattle
and horses took place.
Detailed prices obtained are quoted
under:
Beef, hindquarters, per lb 8c to 9c
Beef, forequarters, per lb 6c to 7c
Lamb, per ib 13e to 14c
Mutton, per lb 12c to 13c
