That eastern financial firms are beginning to take notice of NeW Westminster was evidenced by the visit
here yesterday of R. W. Steele, western representative ot th< Dominion
Securities Corporation, one of the
largest financial firms in Toronto,
with branches in Montreal, Winnipeg
ami London, England. Although the
present issue of New Westminster
i bonds has all hi en taken up by Stlm-
I son and company, Mr. Steele thought
that there might be some other matters coming tip soon In which his
firm might take a hand. "I know the
present issue is all gone,' said he,
"hu! 1 may have a finger in the pie
next time."
Yesterday    afternoon    Mr.    Steele
called   on   City   Treasure,    11.   P.   Latham, and was greatlj surprised when
that official told him that  New "Westminster  possessed  the  whole of her
I waterfront,  worth  at   1 ast. a  million
and   a   half.     "Thai   ought     to   he.p
some."  remarked  the  financial   man.
He was surprised at the price of real
estate in  Vancouver,  where 'lll|s  has
be. n  for  the  last   few   days.    "It  is
i almost  as   high  as  in   Toronto."   he
said.
Wr.   Steele  has  recently     received
[the appointment as western representative   of   his   firm   and   is  noi   sure
! yet  where  his headquarters will  be.
��� His territory extends from the Great
.lakes   to   Vancouver,   but   he   thinks
that   Winnipeg is too far east for his
! business  and    will     probably    Belect
Calgary  or  Regina as  a   place  t0  locate   his   permanent   offic��.     He   has
, been   two   months   making   the   trip
Ifrom the east and on his return wi.I
take  in  all  the branch   lines of  the
i Canadian Pacific railway.
The East End Improvement society, an association having for Its object the beautifying of Sapperton, is
in Ing formed in that district. S. B.
Buchanan and his brother, Dr. A. D,
Buchanan, both of whom ar. heavi 5
Interested In Sapperton, being tiie
originators of the movement.
A large nun.her of the resid nt 1
have already been approac <'d, and
the majority have signified their willingness to assist ln the Improvement
of the district. The first meetings ol
the supporters of the movement  will
be  held  ill  aboul   tvo  weeks  time.
Broadly speaking, the Idea is to
Induce owners of vacant lots to clear
their properties; to keep the ground
in decent shape; to agitate lor tne
better    upkeep    of    the    roads    and
streets;  to arrange for the building
of needed sidewalks and repairs to
existing walks that are badly in need
of attention; to demand better lighting facilities; to make an effort to Induce the Burnaby and New Westminster councils to boulevard Tenth avenue, which divides the municipality
from the city, and to assist In carrying out any other improvement the
will tend to increase the advantagi s
of Sapperton as a residential district.
Incidentally, the society Intends
makln? an effort to have a number of
phi shacks that have rong since
passed the stage where they can be
used for human habitation razed to
the ground and decent buildings
erected in their stead.

Berlin, Feb. 1.���The decision of
King George of Greece to call a national assemb,y awakens the apprehensions of the German government
circles lest the step leads to serious
complications with Turkey, it Is believed that lf the Cretans send delegates to the assemb.y Turkey
Is determined to adopt aggressive
measures. It is assumed, however,
that the four protecting powers-
Great Britain, Russia, France and
Italy���wlh bring pressure to bear
upon the Cretans Influencing them not
to participate in the deliberations ol
the assembly.
Victoria, Feb. 1.���Archbishop McDonald, bead of the Roman Catholic
church In this diocese, entertained
two unusual visitors yesterday afternoon in the persons of the Uev. Father
J. M. A. Jolys, of St. Pierre, Man.,
and the Rev. Father A. II. Cherrler,
of Winnipeg, both of whom were In
the city for a day or two on their
way to the Orient for an extended
trip.
"This," said the Rev. Father Cherrler with a happy smile, "is tlie first
holiday 0' the kind 1 have had in
twenty years. As for Father Jolys,
he has not had such a holiday for
thirty  years."
"True," corroborated Father Jolys
with a delightful French accent, and
stroking his long gray beard. "1 have
had no such trip as we contemplate
since I visited Europe ln '79. It Is a
revelation to me. Now I shall see
those sights of which I have read and
for which ray eyes have hungered
through the long nights of the far
northland."
"We have both worked hard," continued Father Cherrler with a laugh.
"We have both worked very hard and
we are now to have some play. We
go from here to Seattle tonight. Then
we travel by Portland and Tacoma to
San Francisco, down to Los Angeles,
back to San Francisco, and from that
port we sail for Japan. We shall be
gone for some time."
Both Father Jolys and Fat^
Cherrler are seasoned westerners. The
former was stationed for many years
away up at Lac la Blche, 200 miles
north of Edmonton, where he did excellent work and evinced great self-
sacrifice. He is a large, flne.y bul'*
man with a patriarchal beard, Une

Cleveland, Feb. 1.���Full as an old
straw tick, the county treasury is
stuffed with greenbacks anj cheilites.
Money of all vintages Is lying around
on counters and shelves; County
Treasurer Meyers would be violating
the law If he placed the cash In a
bank, ln the meantime the hundreds
and thousands of dollars on bis hands
as a result of the December tax collection are protected only by the
staunchness of an old safe, ordinary
oak doors and a watchman.
The safe Is Jammed full and there
Is an overflow like miniature Btacks
of hay about the treasurer's office.
Meyers Is denied the prlvlleeg of
putting the money in a bank because
no provision Is made for receiving
Interest on funds in excess of the
amount named in the contracts with
banks, and no money can be deposited that does not draw Interest.

Bond  Dealers  Hammered���Loss Over
a Million  Dolalrs.
New York, Feb. 1.���Flsk & Robinson, bond dealers and members of the
New York stock exchange, failed for
a million dollars today.    An involun-
tary petition In bankruptcy was filed
|by creditors in the United States district   court  late   this   afternoon,  and
Bronson Winthrop was appointed receiver with a bond of $50,000.   Shrink.
jage  in   the  value  of  railroad   bands
held by the firm caused the failure.
The failure Is one of the largest since
I tlie panic of 1907, not so much as liabilities are concerned, but in view of
Itlie importance of the firm, Which bits
branches In Chicago, Boston and Worcester,  Mass.
The  New  York  offices  of the firm
|are at 35 Cedar street.
The firm was founded 1 1 1899 by-
Harvey Flsk. the bunker, and George
II. Robinson, who had bs 11 i.i the
employ of the banking firm o Harvey
Fisk & Sons. Mr. Robinson is a member of the stock exchange, but the
business of the firm was principally
banking business and the floating of
bonds.
The petition ln bankruptcy was
filed with the full consent of the Arm,
its members having conclude 1 that
this was the only way to avoid furtive,-
losses both for itself and for its creditors.
A statement issued by the receiver
tonight says the firm's secured obligations will amount to approximate^
$500,000 and the unsecured debts to
more than $1,000,000.

Port Hope. Alaska. Feb. 1.���The recent reported burial of the skulls and
bones of 1200 long dead Eskimos in
the Episcopal burying ground here
under the direction of Bishop P. T.
Rowe may bring about a change in
the burial customs of the north. The
skulls and bones were picked up on
the surface of the ground just where
they were left, maybe a thousand
years ago.
Along the shores of the Antic from
Cape Prince of Wales to Labador, and
far into the untravelled interior, this
apparently heartless custom of leaving the dead a prey to wolves and
half wolf dogs lias prevailed from
time Immemorial. Thi . ��� Is scarcely
a ridge or headland in ail the vast
territory over which the Eskimos
1 ave roamed thai has noi somewhere
upon it a place of skulls.
There is nothing thai more impresses the Arctic travi Her than th1 se
ever present skulls as they stare oui
from their dark moss beds on the
frozen hills ef the northland. Some
of them have kept their long vigils
through centuries and crumble at the
touch like chalk. Othei-; are starlng-
ly fresh from the framework of the
living.
Tell your Eskimos guide that he
should bury his dead and he win tell
you that in Bummer water would
come into the grave. Tell him that
in civilized lands they sometimes
cremate the dead, and he will be
horrified. As a matter of fact, the
custom of leaving the dead on the
Arctic hilltops to be food of savage
beasts is natural and unavoidable,
The digging of a grave in the far"
north, even ln the summer, with the
tools possessed by Eskimos, was nt'xt
io impossible, for even in July the
ground immediately beneath the moss
that covers the surface everywhere
Is frozen as hard as granite to an
unknown depth. Even where the underground ice is found the Eskimos
would consider the making of a grave
a useless expenditure of energy and
at the same time a cruel proceeding
for the thought of having to lie in icy
water is unbearable to an Eskimo.
So their dead are left on thv dry
hilltops.
Although the dead are left on their
mossy beds beneath the unprotectlng
stars, it must not be thought thai
there is no sorrow when death visits
an Eskimos village. There are no
more affectionate people in the world.
This is tlie tsetlmony of everyone at
all familiar with their ways. But thev
typify the childhood of the race. Their
grief like thai of children, Is acute
and is soon over with.
A small hoy runs ahead Of the (lead
man's dog team with the cry "link!
link!" and the funeral processii i Is
Inimpdlatelj under way. A dozen dog
sleds, with their ivory runner.-; creaking in the cold, are flying over the
snow. On they go. some behind,
some ahead, some abreast of th.. improvised hearse. There is no system,
no precedence, no ceremony. Ii is
ten cold for ceremony. So on tbey
fly. the sleds bumping and bounding
over the uneven surface of the snow.
At the top of some ridge, maybe a
mile from the village, the cortege
baits. The dead man is lifted from
the sled and laid upon tlie snow.
Clad in his everyday garments of
deerskin shroud, they leave him there
with the friends wbo have gone be-
foi-o. His weapons, his sled and all
his personal property that the communistic society in which ht> lived allowed rm to possess are left there
beside him.
Rigli' then and there all mourning
ceases. There is not a dog in tlie
Arctic 'hat does not know that a
funeral without a dog race would be
a farci. Every child, every malamute
pup in the village knows that the
team that wins the funeral race will
win honor and frozen seal meat from
every  igloo.
Aimost. as soon as the body touches
the ground they are off. Across the
tundra they fly, dogs, detached pups,
men, women, children and chief
mourners, all nan..' and shouting
frantically. The occasion is one of
confusion and great, hilarity.
In this way the Arctic has disposed of ber dead for no one knows
how long. There are no tearful
dirges, no flowers. There Is no attempt made to make the occasion
impressive, no attempt to perpetuate
the memory of anyone.
In the wild excitement or the race
the sorrow of these childish people
has faded away.
Among the white bones that glisten
on a thousand northern bills may be
found the relies of the Arctic race.
Odd tools are there fashioned out. of
flint and slate or beautifully polished
jade or Ivory. Old bows and arrows
that have rotted away in the grip of
dead men's hands, wonderful Ivory
and copper spearheads, and all the
Weapons that were once scattered
upon Arctic battlefields were left
within the reach of the hands that
shaped them during life. Stone pans
that, served as seal oil lamps are
there, and oid wooden vessels thai
served as drinking cups before the
ships came In from the mysterious
distance carrying tin and granite-
ware.
No monuments mark the resting
place of the dead, but often the great
ribs of the whale are soon standing
here and there above the skulls of
those who some time in the years
gone by were doubtless famous har-
pooners.
'. Before civilization reached out Into
the Arctic no Eskimos were ever
kjnown  to  steal   one  of  these  relies

SETTLING  THE   FRASER   VALLEY.
Tho resolution submitted to the
Provincial Legislature hy Mr. C. E.
Tisdall, one of Vancouver's representatives, with respect to the opening up of the Fraser valley for settlement, should receive hearty support.
Tlie motion has for its object tlie calling of tlie attention of the Dominion
government, which owns the railway
belt along the Canadian Pacific right-
of-way, to the necessity for opening
ui) this extensive and fertile district.
The tract comprises many thousand
acres of Bpiendid land, which is. how-
every, generally very thickly timbered. The heavy nature of the task
and th- great cost involved in the
clearing of land such as this renders
it almost impossible lor the ordinary
settler to undertake it. The necessity
for clearing the bind before anything
can be attempted in the way of cultivation is in fact one of tlie hindraic s
to tlie more rapid settlement of tlie
province of British Columbia. But if
the government were to take Hie
matter in hand and throw open for
settlement a goodly s"ction of this
railway belt each year it would soon
become veil populated.
There is urgent need for the increased production of agricultural
produce" ln this province, the people
of which are paying away many
thousands of dollars to the farmers
of Hie United States every year for
food material that could very well be
grown here. Anything, therefore, that
can be done to increase the rate of
settlement in the fertile valley of the
Fraser wil, be a distinct advantage
to the community, We hope Mr. Tis-
dall's motion will receive the strongest support and will result in some
useful and effective ac i m by the
Federal  government.

SEEKING LARGE  POWERS.
Il is reported that the Western
Canada Power Company, the concern
which has taken over the old Stave
Lake Power Company, is now applying to the Dominion parliament for
extensile powers and privileges for
the BUpply of electric energy, construction and operation of car lines,
and the conduct, of telephone and telegraph business. So compn hi nsive
are the terms of the legislation
being sought that ir this should he
granted the company would appear to
be in a position to operate in any part
of the Dominion, subject only to the
limits set by the regulations of the
Railway Commission. Whilst it is
probable that the city of New Westminster would be protected by tbe
regulation of the Commission, which
requires the consent of the Council
as the local authority before any
lines or other undertakings authorized can be constructed, it is not certain that the same protection is afforded to municipalities.
To Burnaby and South Vancouver,
both of which have recently entered
into forty-year agreements with tlie
H. C. Electric Railway Company, the
intentions of the Western Canada
Power Company will be of particular
interest. The authorities of this city
will also doubtless need to keep a
careful watch upon possible developments.
THE LADNER  HIGHWAY.
We are glad to learn that the
Delta Municipal Council has now
taken action In regard to the Ladner
Highway, to the dangerous and evi,
condition of which we recently drew
attention. Wo understand thai 'lie
authority has served peremptory notice upon the Great Northern Railway
Company requiring them to at once
put the road into a proper condition
for travel. The company Obi tin 'I
powers to appropriate the old Ladner
road that skirted the river for the
right-of-way of their new Hue to
Blaine, upon the condition thai they
should construct a new road and
maintain this in good condition for
two years. The company has, however, allowed this new highway to fall
into a thoroughly bad state.
This Is an Important means of communication on the southern side of
the river, and, owing to Its condition,
loss, inconvenience and danger have
been experienced by those who have
to use it. Now that the Delta Council
has moved In the matter if is to be
hoped that this corporation carries
out its obligations to tin ir full extent.

lodge of the Canadian Order of Woodmen of the Worid will be held in the

Vancouver, Feb. 1���That British Co- I
lumbia is looked upon by Doukhohors j
at present domiciled on the prairie
in the same light as the promised
land was by the Israelites under Moses, or at any rate similarly, was the
assertion made by \V. A. Campbell,
of Winnipeg, during an Interesting
conversation at the Hotel Vancouver
today.
He remarked that the progress on
the prairie and the prolific nature of
the crops had an effect on settlement
in British Columbia, as the Doukhohors, who, instead of taking up homesteads In the northwest, preferred to
pre-empt land here instead. "Their
chief objection to acquiring land in
Manitoba or in the other provinces
where "and may be acquired by complying with the regulations governing
same," Mr. Campbell remarked, "is
tbey do not care to bind themselves
to the country in any way by swearing
allegiance and agreeing to bear arms
ln case of an outbreak of war. The
Doukhohors would sooner buy the
land outright, and to attain thin end
they toil and till to get the wherewithal to enable them to do eo.
"Over one million bushels of wheat
were raised by these people last
year," he continued; "that means
$1,0(10,000 for purchasing British Columbia land, or at least a large Pro"
portion of It, so you see how the
wheat crop affects the settlement of
this province."
Mr. Campbell mentioned also that
j he understood negotiations were be-
! ing conducted for the acquirement of
j land in the Nechaco district, besides
; which a large number of Doukhohors
i were Intending to settle ln the Kettle
j river country and aiso around the
Columbia river district near Nelson,
I where settlements are already estab-
I lisbed.
Speaking on the money-making pos-
islhilities of Rrltish Columbia, he went

New York, Feb. 1.���More than
$300,000,000 of good American money
Is sent every year to Europe for the
purchase of farming lands there by
alien workmen who earn wages in the
United States, according to Lajos
Steiner, of the New York department,
of agriculture. This, he says, represents a tremendous strain on the
country's resources and a strain
which "would be unnecessary If they
onlv knew how much cheaper they
could buy farm land b��re than in
Europe.
Steiner advocates the establishment
of a bureau ln the department which
shall keep a lookout for good farm

Sacramento, Feh. 1.���The closing
sermon or Rev. William H, G. Tom- :
pie, formerly of Seattle, and now retiring pastor of the First Congregational church, furnished a sensation
on Sunday.
Declaring that the "low spirituality''
and not finances caused the split between himself and the congregation
wllich resulted in a request for his
resignation some weeks ago, Dr.
Temple flayed the members of the
church and thy trustees.
In the midst of the sermon Mrs. O.
G. Hopkins, wife of a church and city
trustee, became hysterical. Hopkins
caught her as she fainted In the aisle.
Holding her on his left arm, he shook
his right list at Dr. Temple, exclaiming:     "Vou  did  this,  you rascal."
There was silence for a moment,
while Hopkins and another assisted
Mrs. Hopkins to the air, and then
Dr. Temple resumed his denunciation
of tlie church trustees and members
of the  congregation.
He will go to Seattle this week to
engage In the insurance business.

Undergarments

Showing.
The new Undermuslins
for Spring are spreading over counters and
tables like a mantle of
snow.
From the best manufacturers in the trade we
have secured their choicest products at the most
advantageous prices we have ever paid for garments of equal worth. The judicious placing of
orders during dull seasons, heavy quantity buying
and spot cash payments have all combined to make
possible the great values which this spring showing
affords.
Briefly here are the points that give the Sale highest importance.
QUALITY���every garment is new and perfect, made from best materials,
accurately sized���daintily trimmed and finished with the most pains-taking
care. VARIETY���assortments include all good grades in scores of stylt-sancf
ranging from the simple to the elaborate. SAVINGS���the prices represent
actual and substantial savings under prevailing retail values. Everything
considered, it will be a thrifty thing to buy a liberal supply for far-ahead needs.
All these claims are easy for you to test by inspection and comparison.
