Washington, Dec. 1���President Taft
today completed his message to congress and sent it to the government
printer in its final form. The document was laid before the cabinet at
a special session, which began at ten
o'clock this morning and lasted until
nearly   three  in  tlie  afternoon.
The message is said to be unusually long, the estimates running from
30,000 to 40,000 words. The president
went over every feature of the document with the cabinet and it is said I
that some charges were made at their i
suggestion, principally in matters affecting their own departments.
During his recent visit to Panama
Taft prepared a long program, which
included such measures as the ship
subsidy bill; reappointment, and decrease in the membership of the
house, federal licensing of corporations and pensioning of superannuated
employees of the government. Leaders opposed this plan and it is now
believed that the president will not
try to force through a lengthy list of
bills.
Chicago, Dec. 1.���An offer of the
Pullman company to reduce the rates
charged for upper berths In sleeping
cars 'ML per cent, where lower berths
were priced at more than $1.50, to
make the price of uppers $1.26 as a
minimum and reduce some lower
berth rates, was opposed before the
interstate commerce commission here
by attorneys general of four states,
and by the two railroads.
Tlie Pullman company's offer left
unchanged Pullman seat rates and
was to become effective on approval
and acceptance by the commission.

TROUBLE  FOR  FIGHTERS.
The men in charge cf the petition
called on the city of Westminster for
sup] ori   and  that support  waq given,
bui  only on condition that Uie claims
of the    South    Arm    he    given equal
I prominence  with  those  of  the  North
Arm.   This was agreed to and as one
(meeting after another  vvas held and
the enthusiasm  over  the  whole  project seems to he growing it was decided to not only send a petition but
to sen"! a delegation, armed  With    a
formidable array of facts and figures,
which  are    expected    to prove    conclusively to the Dominion government,
that there is great need for improvement on the Fraser.
Although  George    Kennedy,    presi-
is
one of the delegates, the whole project lias been kept out of the reach of
politics. It is the feeling of the delegates anl it was the feeling of the
meetings held to discuss th.e project
that the undertaking was too big for
politics an! as one of the speakers
said at a meeting held here a few
days ago, Sir Wilfrid Laurier was too'
big a man to allow politics to influence him or his cabinet when _
(inestion of such national importance
was placed before him.
It is not known how long the delegation will be away. Tliey are going
after what tliey want and some of
them expressed the determination of
not coming back until it was obtained.

ADVANCE   NEW   WESTMINSTER.
It is highly satisfactory to observe
that the indications of the progress
and development of New Westminster
which have been notable during p;e-
vlous months of tlie year, are
strengthened and confirmed by tbe returns of the various government departments for the month just ended.
Tlie fact lliat the customs office in
this city has collected nearly five
thousand dollars over and above the
sum received in November of 1909,
is in itself a reliable sign that a very
healthy state of development has
I alien place and is taking place in tlie
commercial and industrial affairs of
the ttoyal City. Inasmuch as commercial prosperity is the basis of a
modern city's welfare and upgrowth,
this very reliable sign of N'ew Westminster's good fortune is most cheering and gratifying.
As a means of showing tlie advance
wliich is heing made in the general
husiness interests of the city there
:ire also the returns of the land registry office and timber department.
Both these display a continuing
growth, whilst the timber returns
show an increase of no less than one
hundred per cent. This, notwithstanding the fact that the district was cut
in two quite recently. It is likewise
satisfactory to see that the indications are that the present activity
simong ihe timber interests will continue, probably for some time, if not
permanently. All this looks good, and
with the railway, car line and ship-
pint; developments now in the making, it is clear that a great future for
New Westminster is assured.

LORDS AND COMMONS.
Matters political are moving to the
time of a quick march in Great Britain just now. Almost every day
luings news of a change in the situation. Tlie latest, move is that on the
part of -Air. Balfour, who lias practically thrown the tariff reform plank
of liis party's platform overboard and
declares tlie issue to he confined to
Home Rule and the House cf Lords.
The Unionist leader avows now that
the question of tariff reform should be
decided by a referendum, and in this
manner he has conveniently placed
the former issue on one side.
It is a clever tactical move, no
doubt, and in the little time at their
disposal tlie Liberal party may bave
some difficulty in devising an effective counter move. Mr. Asquith has
been advised to reply to the Unionist
tactics by offering to submit the
Home Rule question also to the referendum. Hut this presents some difficulties, and, moreover, the Liberal
leader is at present engaged in declaring that the idea of the referendum is
unconstitutional. We confess that we
do net quite see this. We should, indeed, be inclined to regard tlie referendum as an excellent means for obtaining the views of the country upon
a particular question. More suitable
indeed for this purpose, because more
definite, than tlie present Bystem of
obtaining tlie feeling of the electors
by a costly election,- in which anything from two to ba'f a dozen different issues may be irrvolvel. The result in such an case is never satisfactory beea use the real desire of tlie
people cannot  be made clear.
As to the result of the general election now in prqgress, no man can say.
Roth sides claim a predominant Influence and predict results accordingly. Hut there is nothing in human
affairs so uncertain and so unstable
as the popular vote. This lias frequently upset the very careful calculations of the most experienced statesmen. It is not' 4t all unlikely that lt
will this, yiue p. uvitje a surpilse for a
.good many.

Referred to a Committee.
Al a stormy meeting of the senior

nlghl the idea of joining the ranks
of the li. C. A. A. U, was discussed j
in all its phases, bul the professionals
are still professionals. Four of the
delegates at the meeting were in

The matter was finally referred to al
'��� committee consisting of Leith, Risk
and Forsyth, who will consult with

In  the meantime tlie senior league

relating to that was considered last

brought up the question of the expenses for the trip to Westham Island
which the Rovers took at the first of

the Rovers went to Wesl ham Island,
hut could not find any team ito play
against. They want their expenses
and il was this thai Mr. Heaton suggested last night. They could nol hut
admit the justice of his contentions,
hut the Rovers have not yet got thel
$25 and it is doubtful if they will I
ever see it. The meeting last night ]

THE HOPE DIAMOND
HAS REAPPEARED
Believed Safely Lost At Sea
It Is Back in Paris ���
History Cheapens It.
lews   prosperous    year    b..
Paris, Dee. 1.���The famous Hope
diamond, wliich has brought death or
misfortune to every person who lias
owned It and which was believed to
be sale at hist al the bottom of the
China sea, has re-appeared in Paris.
It is now on sale in the window of a
jeweler in the Rue de la Paix, but ita
evil reputation lias effected its price.
Lord* Francis Hope sold it for $HS,-
000, but it can he bought now for less
than $100,000.
About a year ago the diamond was
bought by a Persian named Habid,
who was said to be acting for an Indian potentate, lie look passage for
India on the French steamship Seyne,
wllich was rammed and sunk In I lie
China soa by the Onda,
ll was supposed that all on board
were lost, but by a peculiar coincidence the man who has brought ihe
famous stone hack tn Paris is a Persian named Unhid. Whether he is the
original one returned from the dead
cannot l>e toll, but in any ���overt another mystery has been added to the
diamond's long list.
May   Yohe   Wore   It   on   Stage.
The diamond became well-known in
America when it scintillated on tln>
breast of Lady Francis Hope, once the
beautiful May Yohe, when, after her
marriage to the son of the Earl of
Newcastle, she returned to the vaudeville stage. She fell a victim to its
baneful Influence. After a brief married life she eloped with Putnam
Bradley Strong, son of ex-Mayor
Strong, of Xew York. With him she
travelled all over the world, growing
less   and
year.
Last February she became thc proprietress of a cheap lodging house in
Seattle, and then lost even that, and
was reduced to singing in the cheap
music halls in the cellars of San Francisco.
��� Hut long before May Yohe ever
heard of tlie diamond il had a sinister
history. The lirst known of it was
when it  wns  brought to Palis    is the
reign of Louis XIV. by a   travelling
jeweler named Tavernier, who is said
to have stolen it from a Hindoo idol.
Then it weighed in its rough state
11J carats, but alter it had been re-
cut by an Anistei d;,m jeweler il
weighed liT'j carats.    Taverifler later

that the late General Sir Redvers Puller succeeded in relieving Ladysmith
during the last Boer war. Hut il' a
story which litis just come to band

Boers, bad it noi been ior the strategy of a Zulu chief, who. ol the last.
moment, came to the relief of the
("harassed  Hritish general.
The story which comes from Bur-
ban, is to the effect that the Zulu
chief .Malinga, is claiming through
the court, a reword of $2M and
eighty head of cattle for the ser-
vines rendered ou the occasion referred to. Malinga declares that it was

The    Federal    Principle.
A  point   on   which  th.e  three  countries   vary   greatly   is  in  the  application   of   the   federal   principle.       In
Great Britain there is one strong central  government, and no local legislatures,    hence    the    parliament     that
makes   a   constitution   for   Canada  or
South Africa  spends costly bours and
days on local matters of no national
significance.    Time will  doubtless see
this   changed.       The   l'nited    States
went   to   the   other   extreme,   defined
I certain   important   functions   for   tte
national government, others for state
legislatures,    and    relegated     to    the
state    authorities  also    such      functions  as   had   not   heen  allotted  specifically to either.    This situation has
resulted fn many abuses by large corporations, which, it is thought by such
men   as  Col.   Roosevelt,  can   only   he
remedied   by   adjusting   tlie   balance
and   increasing   the  authority  of  the
Federal government.    In Canada the
federal  authorities  stands  in  a  relation midway between, as it were, t)e
conditions in the other two countries

hut he has no seat In either assembly.
.There Is a senate and a house of assembly In each state, both elected by
the   people.      The  state  legislatures
have been the most proline sources of
corruption,   with   the  possible  exception of a few large cities.    They are
not conspicuous enough to attract the
hest men, and the principle of voting
on    a   party   ticket    rather   than   for
each man on his merits'tends to the
boss  system,   with   hli.*1  powers,  and
consequently emoluments, accruing to
[the man Who can swing the party. Below   the   Btate   legislatures   enine   the

Will be nen. Is cart iei much  further
than In Canada, and with results that
are  open  to doubt   for  their wisdom.
It may he added, as the result of
considerable observation and touching a point on which Cana Hans have
nad much lo say, that, although politically tlie l'nited States In spots
sinks to abysmal degradation. Its
powers of recovery are marvellous,
the people will endure a good deal In
Ignorance or In Indulgence, but, once
roused, they pursue their political offenders with nn impartiality, swiftness and remorsolossness that Canadians may very well envv.
