A Warning Note.
French temperament faces th . sub-

L papers are already sounding a
LP of warning that tue lesson must

Dlllsi be taken to avoid a repetition

in the way of a canal or a large un-
Leround conduit around Paris.
Th,. prefeci of the department of
I tlK. Seine bus issued instructions to
tlie owners of flooded houses lo clean
and dislnfecl their premises within
twenty-four hours after the subsidence of the water, otherwise the
work will be done at the cost and risi
of owners.

An indication of the Immense pro.
gress of New Westminster is found
in the perusal of the returns for January of the land registry otlice.
Nearly $1,260,000 worth of property
has changed bunds during the last
month, and the amount derived from
receipts alone is over $6000, as compared wiih $2,117,86 of January, 1909.
This is nearly double that during the
same period of lasl year, and is a
sure Index of the prosperity of the
city.
The bulk of the property turned
over Is within th(. city limits, but at
the same time there has been a good
demand' for property outside of New
Westminster. The. staff at tbe registry office has been working at full
pitch during the last month, nnd
there is every indication that the February business will keep them just,
as busy.
The extentlon to the existi .�� registry office accommodation is no: yet
completed, but once the new premises
are occupied the staff Will have
greater facilities for th, execution of
their  duties.

The Arctic Seas Ownership.
Col. Sam Hughes brought, up the
recent utterance of Captain Hernier
in New York, as reported in the press,
respecting the ownership of the Arctic seas. Col. Hughes especially directed attention to ihe wording to
the alleged utterances which gives
tbe impression that Canada and Great
Britlan were separate nations. Had
the government reminded Captain
Hernier that Canada was not a nation, and not yet a separate country
from Great Britian'?
Laurier Gives Warning.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier said li i had
seen the despatches to w'hich Col.
Hughe? referred. He did not think
Captain Hernier had any intention of
causing international complications,
bul if he had spoken as reported, he :
had  better keep to his deck,
Mr. Foster asked if then   was any '
.project  to  send  Captain  Bernier  to,

^^^^^^^^^^^^ Decorations.
The decorations Of the hall were
a sight to be remembered. Tne orchestra was on a raised stand, and
on each side of this piaifor.u two
long war canoes hung from the ceiling. The long dark cauoes, swaying
above the dancers, were certainiy a
novel sight. At one corner ot the
room old Coquitlam George sat in
state. Nothing disturbed him. Wh n
some of the ladies would go up and
look as* him thet old fi lio.v would
grin with pleasure, but never seemed
to be surprised.

The walls aud ceiliug weie a mass
of Hags and bunting;  Indian baskets

themselves in Introducing touches of
Indian   music   into   their   selections.

Cummings. a Boston note broker, for
alleged participation in the $320,000

More   Accommodation   Needed.
The great problem confronting the
scliool hoard this year is the lack of
accommodation  for  the  ever-growing
army of youngsters who have to be
educated.    There are from twelve to
fourteen   hundred  hoys  and  girls  attending school in  New  Westminster,
and the necessary accommodation is
lacking  to  properly  provide  for this
number.    While  none  of  the  rooms
are so overcrowded as to be actually
uncomfortable for the scholars, still
doubling up is the case In several of
the class rooms, while in other cases
special accommodation has had to oe
sought.
New  Lulu  Island  School.
To   provide   for  tbe  needs  of  the
i juvenile population of that  portion of
I Lulu Island which is within the city
j limits a scliool is being opened there
���today, the class room being situated
lover   Crane's   store.     Knowledge    to
about forty children will be imparted
j by Miss Mabel Bowell, who has had
previous experience In teaching, both
here   and   in   Vancouver.     TJiiy   new
[school is well furnished, and precautions have been taken against disaster through  Are.    An additional exit
has been provided by the building of
a stairway at the rear of tho store,
and  the  children will  be  trained to
use this in case of emergency.

ABOLISH  BARS ON
C. P. R. LAKE STEAMERS
Nelson, Jan. 31.���On February 1
and thereafter the open bars on the
steamers of the C. P. R. in the British
Columbia lake and river waters will
be abolished, and the same system of
handling liquors will be put in force
as exists in the standard dining cars
of the company, which brings the
sale of the same under the strict control of tlie management, who accept
all responsibility for Its being handled
in proper shape.
A new Higli School, to be built on
Tipperary, the necessary site having
been granted to the scliool board by
the provincial government a couple
of years ago, is also suggested for
j this year. Once this is built the
i present High School will be used by
I some of the students who are now
! overcrowding the Central schools. In
the meantime the rooms will have to
i be rented somewhere ln the neighbor-
; hood to house the overflow from the
1 Central school.
Another move has been made In the
Matsiiul oil scare. Alexander Crulck-
shank and several people In the neighborhood of Matsqui prairie have applied for licenses to prospect for coal
and petroleum on all the available
land in tbe vicinity Of the place
where the Indications were first found.
As each applicant has to pay a license
fee of $100 before he prospects, the
people concerned evidently have
some  Idea  that   oil   can   be   found.

her;

Hence It has come
reason of the strong
ultra-radicals against.
Ixirds,  their  proposal
about thai by
threats of the
the House of
to   glvB   Home
Rule to Ireland, which the Redmond-
ites demand tis u measure of complete
freedom, have served to alarm a large
proportion of the British electorate,
who cast their votes against the Liberal-Socialist coalition accordingly.
Moreover, Great Britain is not prepared to accept, so strong n measure
of reform as was implied in the
Budget of .Mr. Lloyd-CJeorge. Tne
feeling in regard to this latter feature of the election may be seen to
be expressed in the defeat of several
well known Socialists, such as Victor
Grayson, and of extreme Radical-
Labor men like Will Crookes. We
are not, therefore, Inclined to consider
the result of the election as one that
i�� a pronouncement iu favor of tariff
reform so much as ii i.-, against the
government's proposals.
lt  is evident  that  the  position  ol
Premier Asquiih will be one of great
difficulty.    He has not recel\ d a decisive mandate from the country  to
effect  the reforms which constituted
the main planks of the Liberal platform.   With only a party majority of
41, an uncertainty as to what course
the Nationalists are likely  to pursue
in   respect,  to  legislation   which   the
government   i.-   desirous   of,    putting
forward, and an opposition ot  -71   to
contend against,  the position oi the
Liberal ministry is one thai may well
cause  concern.     It   is  pretty   certain
that the extreme Radical tune ot thi
intended   measures   wii,   have   t i   be
considerably  modified.    Ji   la not   unlikely,  also,   that   Mr,   Asquith   may
find some difficulty  in  reconstructing
his  cabinet.     That   dissension   sometimes arose between thy Gladstonian
Liberals like the Premier and Sir Ed-
Ward Grey, and the extreme Radicals
like  Mr. Lloyd-Georgc and  Mr.  Winston Churchill, Is pretty well known,
and now that the advanced projects
. of   the   latter   have   been   practically
reject ed by the constituencies the demands of this section of the parly will
not loom quite so large In the councils  of  the  cabinet.    Some  shuffling
of positions will be necessary, and it
is probable the Premier will remove
one   or   two   of   big   late   colleagues
from the table.
The outcome of the battle which
has raged around the House of Lords
has,   however,   resulted   In   a   general
agreement on both sides that some
reform ln tho constitution und powers of this chamber Is necessary. Exactly In what way such a reform
shall he effected has yet to be considered. It Is possible that, the elect-
iv0 principle will be adopted In place
of that of hereditary right which has
hitherto obtained. By this means the
services of the ablest men In all
walks of life who have been elevated
to the peerage would be secured ln
the councils of the nation. As to the
powers of the tipper chamber, on the
Liberal side there Is a desire to set a
decided limit to the veto of the Lords,
but It Is doubtful whether so radical
a change can be effected. The L'uion-
ists are, however, willing, it is understood, that the established constitutional principle respecting the supreme power of the Commons ln respect to finance measures and supplies should become of statutory force
Altogether a spirit of Concllaltion In
regard to the work of the next, parliament would seem very likely to pre
vail.

A. G. Beaton, who attended .vester-

from ihe Rovers, reported that teh
postcard sent to Referee Williscroft
by E. Murchie had been forwarded
I without, the knowledge of the other
officials, and that the sender had no

The meeting was satisfied with Mr.
Beaton's explanation. It was decided
to censure Mr. Murchie for addressing the Referees' association without

Chicago, Jan. 31.���Strychnine was
found throughout the vlscora of Col.
Thomas II. Swope, the Kansas City
millionaire, according to a report by
Drs. Haines, Hekton and Vaughn to
John G. Haxton, executor of the
Swope estate, here today. The same
poison is also be.leved to have been
found in the liver of Christian Swope,
a nephew of Col. Swope, but it was
announced that the examination of
his organs had not been completed to
the satisfaction of the lexicologists
and would be continued.
When pressed to name the person
or persons under suspicion, Mr. Haxton absolutely refused to name anyone.
When told that Dr. B. C. Hyde, of
Kansas City, had brought suit against
him to recover $100,000 for alleged
slander, Mr. Paxton refused very

Scotch  Whisky
A Record of Nearly a Century.
It was in the year 1815���nearly a Hundred
years ago���that the first gallon of Watson s
Whisky was produced1.
It is distilled to-day in precisely the same
careful, conscientious manner as when first
placed on the market. We use the old-fashioned Pot Still and distil <anly from Malted
Barley.
Not a quart is ever bottled until we have
first assured ourselves that it is thoroughly
matured���and that maturing process, hy the
way, takes place in Sherry Casks, a method
recognized hy experts as giving a specially fine
flavor.
So firmly do we believe in the unvaiying
excellence of our product that we guarantee
absolutely every bottle sold under our label and
capsule.

Vancouver, Jan. 31.���.Making her
way along a dangerous dyge in the
dark, with a terrific gale blowing.
Miss G. Richards, of Eburne, gave an
alarm that saved Gibson's shingle
mil. from destruction. On Saturday
night, after the day shift had gone,
leaving everything safe, sparks from
the sawdust destructor, blown by the
strong wind, set fire to the engine
room and the whole mill would have
gone but for the prompt alarm which
allowed men from the Eburne lumber
mill, eight hundred yards away, to
get to the threatened  mill,
Miss   Richards  fell   many  times  in
her htm to get assistance, and is now
tinder tlie doctor'* care with a badly
injured arm.   Her father ami brother
were   the   first   to  see   the  fire  and
they rushed to the mill to aid the lone
night engineer in fighting the flaws.
The girl made her way to the
Lumber company's mill and bl
whistle alarm.   Then all El :���      t trn-

fire.     The   damage   was   confined

New Vork, .Tan. 31.���A skyscraper
for the use of physicians, the only
one in the world, will be built in this
city off Broadway in East Forty-
first, street, in the bowels of the theatrical belt. It was unofficially rumored in real estate circles today
that the building would be dubbed
"The Doctorium." The projected
building will be fifteen stories high
and will contain 250 suites of offices,
each adapted to the use of doctors.
Charles M. Warner, a rich real estate man, is making the experiment,
and if it, proves successful here it
will likely be copied in other cities
through the United States.
The most approved sanitary arrangements will bp Installed. With
250 rival physicians in the same i
building, it is quite likely that this j
city will set a new record and new j
pace In medical competition.

a large log on the sloop, nn;l in some
unaccountable way the grabhook of
the chain caught in his glove and
Jerked him over and beneath the 1��K.
which passed over his body, Instantly
killing  him.
No blame can be attached to anyone, and his companions were simply
overwhelmed with grief. Mr. Hid was

JUNIOR SOCCER SCHEDULE.
Chicago, Jan. 31.���While a ten 1.. 'i
group of man milliners shuddered
yesterday afternoon the express companies directed a telling blow at the
mushroom hat industry, it happened
I at the Interstate commerce commission inquiry into the rates for transporting millinery, which has been go-
Tug on before Commissioner James S.
i Harlan,
It   was   evident   that   the   express
! companies had thrown off for all time
the tyranny of the "big lid."   Through
'their  representatives    they    declared
they would rather go out of business
| than stand it any longer.
During the last two years the ex-
: press   companies   have   been   putting
| up  the rates on   hats  until  they  are
now nearly twice  what they were In
1906, and the hat makers were before
the commission to find out why.

Victoria, Jan. 31.���It Is stated on
good authority that the Canadian Nor-
thorn Railway has secured an option
on the entire Dunsmuir coal mining
and real estate property on Vancouver island. Eleven mi.lion dollars is
mentioned as the sale price, and lt is
understood that $100,000 has been
paid to bind the bargain on that basis
It. T. Elliott, a Vicotria barrister, is
believed to be handling the deal.
i While no official announcement of
the facts can be obtained today, owing  to   the  absence   of   former  Gov-
! ernor  Dunsmuir  up  the  coast,  It   is
! declared   by   mm   in   a   position   to
'know that these are the broad outlines of the proposed deal. The Mc-
Kenzie-Mann  people  have  until   May
: 1 to complete the purchase. In the
meantime the properties are to be
examined and fully reported upon for
, the purchasers.
At the same time it Is stated that
both the Northern Pacific and the
Harrlman   people  have  been   figuring
! on the possible purchase of the property for some weeks. Indeed, negotiations looking to the bonding of the
mining and realty properties of the
former governor to Portland people,
wlio are acting under the direction of
President Howard Elliott of the Northern Pacific railway, were initiated
over   a   month   ngo.
Tacoma, Jan. 31.���Mayor Llnck will
| call upon the Chamber of Commerce,
the Commercial club and citizens In
general for relief for the flood-stricken   people  of   Paris.
"Other cities will be doing the
same thing," said he today, "and I believe we should be well up toward
the head of the procession in making
a start. Tacoma was a generous
giver to the people of San Francisco
at the time of the earthquake and
fire. We sent, them a ship load of
provisions. Paris Is now calling as
loudly for aid as was the Golden Gate
then."

At the close of the Pranco-Prtuv
rian war a hasty conferenco waa
held by tlie German leaders to de-
tide upon thc amount of indemnity
rliich should be exacted from
Prance. Bismarck, differing from
Von Moltke, telegraphed to Berlin
for a financier in whom he had unbounded confidence. The man was
a Hebrew and was for some reason
disliked by the great Prussian general When, therefojre, he gave tds
opinion thai, the amount demanded
sliould be so many thousand million
francs Von Moltke. exclaimed Impatiently :
"Ahwuxil!   It is too much!"
"I know the resources of the
French people," said the financier
calmly.   "They can pay it."
*It is a monstrous demand!" repeated Von Moltke sngrily. "If a
man had b��\-un when tlie world war
created to count he would not have
reached that sum now."
"And that is the reason," interrupted Bismarck quickly, his eye
twinkling, "that 1 got a man who
counts���from Moses."
Von Moltke and tho Hebrew tried
to look grave, hut both laughed, and
tlie storm was averted.
The sequel to the anecdote has ���
deeper meaning. Tho linancier,
when he received the summons to
the conference, wm undergoing
treatment for some affection of the
eyes which required confinement to
a dark chamber. Ilia oculist warned him that if he obeyed the summons the exposure aud delay in the
treatment would almost inevitably
result in loss of sight.
He was silent a moment and then
said: "I think that I am needed. I
have no right to consider my sight
I will go."
He went, aud the results which
the oculist had feared ensued. He
became blind for life.
Von Moltke, when the story was
told him, said briefly: "I wronged
the man. lie has served his coun-
trv. as truly as any soldier on the
told."
