which bave occurred. At last night's
meeting of the council Alderman
Lynch, chairman of a special commit'

reported that the number of leaple
who had signed the petit ion againsi
the improvements was nol sufficient
to stop the work being carried on.
The reporl recommended, however,
that owing to the large number oi
workmen who lived on tlie street, it
would be hard on tliem if the improve
ments were proceeded with, it would
be well if only tlie storm sewers ana
sidewalks were constructed at present.
Mayor Lee explained that the whole
business or none at all would have to
be proceeded with. If a sufficient
number of objectors were uot found
there was only one course open and
that was to proceed with tue entire
work.
Then Alderman Lynch amended his
report simply stating that the commit
tee had found that there was not
sufficient property represented on the
opposition petition to stop the work.

London, Feb. 1.���John Hull, unlike
the French, docs not hoard up his savings in a woolen stocking, but puts
them out at interest atl over the
world, with results that arc sometimes
surprising even to himself.
In the last  sixty years the  United j
Kingdom has invested abroad on the
average about a quarter of its annual,
savings.   Last year the proportion ap- j
pears to be nearer on half.   The Statist calculates that the total savings Of
the nation in 1'JlO have reached the t
unprecedented figure of $1,750,(100,0011. j
Of this $1,100,000,000 has been taken
up by subscriptions to publicly issued |
securities, and the rest by private in-1
vestments.     Of   public   subscriptions i
roughly  $626,000,000  has  been in   re- j
sped   of  home  aud   colonial   govetn-i
ments, and enterprises, while foreign j
governments  and   undertakings   have
absorbed    $534,000,000.     The   United
States  comes  lirst  in   tlie   list   with
$197,950,000, mostly for railroad bonds,
and Argentina next with $114,325,000,
while Canada, among the Hritish pos-j
essions is responsible for $14,410,000.
The lirst Question that presents itself is : Where has the money come
from? By far the greater part has
been divided by the Hritish public,!
cither directly or through banks and
institutions. The present time is remarkable for the confidence of the
Hritish investor in industrial and financial conditions all over the world,
and the knowledge of this has prompted the notation of all kinds of enterprises on the London mai ket.
Is England exporting ol I accumulation or capital? The Statist thinks
not. It argues that the large subscriptions to new issues must represent new savings. An individual Investor, ii says, can sell home securities that he has held for years and in-
vesl the proceeds of the sa'e in colonial and foreign seem Hies, but for him
to do this some other investor must.
purchase his home securities, and in
such a case the capital invested
abroad is the now savings of the pe--
son who has purchased the home se-
(in Pies from him.
That a larger proportion than the
average of Bhitish savings is invested
abroad arises from economic- neces
.ity, concludes the Statist, and results
from the rapid increase in the wealth
of the British people.

Calgary, Feb. 1.���Two little boys,
Tony Wilms, aged eleven, his brother,
Bernie, aged ten, and a collie dog
named Brindle, living in section 36,
Township 35, Range Hi, near Red Dee"
River, had a most perilous journey
last week. They wandered all night
in a blizzard with the thermometer
way down below, but arrived in the
morning at their destination.
The two little boys, who live with
their father, were commissioned to go
to the gorcery store kept by I. D.
Chappell, for groceries, lt was clear
and line when they set off with no
sign of a blizzard, and it did not take
them long to walk the two and one-
half miles to the store.
When they left on their homeward
journey, there was a light snow falling, and the wind was beginning to
rise.   The trail was clear, however.
After tbey bad gone the thermometer dropped alarmingly, the wind rose
strong, and a regular blizzard set in
it became so fierce that all trace of
th.e trail was obliterated by the drifting snow. At live o'clock that evening
the failure of the boys to return cans
ed their father great uneasiness. He
set out for Chapi ell's place to sic
what had become of them. The biz
/.ard was so fierce that he lost tlie way
himself, and after two bonis weary
wrestling with the storm, found his
way home again.
Then he got a lantern and made a
tedious trip along the trail lo Chap-
pell's. This time lie reached it but
the way he had to be on thc alert for
tear of losing himself. At nine o'clock
tliat night he arrived at Chappell's,
hoping against hope that the boys
would be waiting there oui of the
storm. He almost broke down when
. he found they had left for home six |
hours earlier.
He Insisted on going out on to the
now  trackless prairie, and   Chappell i
accompanied him wiih lanterns.     At j
midnight the search had to be abandoned as tlie futility of it was obvl I it]
Mr. Wiling did not sleep that  night,
and   at  daybreak   he   took   the   home-j
ward trail hoiing that liis sons would j
have safely landed there through the
storm.
The whole district was aroused by
daylight and ihe search was frantically renewed. At 8:30 three dark ou j
jects were observed on a butte, but
Mr. Chappell took them to be
searchers.
However,'one of the Bearchers,|
nam. d Rny Phelen, exclaimed: "'Why, j
there are the boys-"
Fagged and weary after their night
on the prairie, the hoys bad to be al
'most carried. Tony's left ear was
frozen, and the other's feet were tinned. They had kepi themselves from
j freezing by running up and down an
exposed piece of trail they found, and i
rubbing their hands in the long hair
of the dog when they became cold.
They came across an empty shack
during the night, but dated not en-1
ter it. When morning came they had
no idea where tbey were, but walki d
straight ahead i:i tho hope of meeting j
some one. 'then they saw Chappell'.;
place.
"We made it up Ihat we would now
and men run to keep ourselves from
freezing. We knew we could keep on
for another two days and that we
should meet some one before then," j
said Tony.
The father almost broke down when
he met them again an.l the return was
truly a miracle.
SCARLET   FEVER   CASES
EPIDEMIC   IN   REGINA
Regina, Feh. 1.���The number of
cases of scarlet fever in tbe city assuming the proportions of an epidemic.
Within the past two weeks about fifteen cases have been reported, and thc
medical authorities are unable to account for the spread of Ihe disease.
Some of the cases are serious, and one
death has been reported, Miss Grace
Broder passing away from the disease
at an early hour this morning. The
number of cases Is constantly lncreas
ing, three having been reported ln tho
past two days.
The medical authorit Ich of the city
are at a loss of account for ihe spread
of the disease. Seal let fever ls con
taglous, but the natural causes wbicli
would explain the spread of tphoid,
such as the shortage of water, do nol
apply to scarlet, fever. Impure milk
may be the cause of It, however.
There are also a large number of
cases of German measles in Ihe city,
but all are of a mild type, and the disease is not usually considered dangerous.

THE    PROVINCIAL   JAIL.
On more than one occasion  within
the lasl  two
.ears
grand juries lune contained
recommendation ior the enlargement
of the provincial jail in this city. Then
too. in the fall of 1909, Karl Grey, the
governor general, when on a visit to
this city, also called attention to tho
crowded state of this jail, with the
consequent herding together of prisoners on remand and convicted persons, and expressed the hope that Increased accommodation would sonn be
provided. Notwithstanding      these |
strong representations, however, nothing has so far been done.
Tlie provincial jail In New Westminster receives prisoners from districts
spread over quite a large area of British Columbia, including the populous
city of Vancouver. Its accomodation
is practically the same as when it was
firsl built, many years ago The pon-
olatlon has, however, increased very
considerably since thai time. As i^
���well known, crime increases in volume
vide by side with the growth of population. The proportion of increase in
ciime to the growth of population is of
-course larger in cities than in the rural
yjarls of tlie country. I'ence we find
Vancouver alone contributing quite al
large percentage of prisoners for incarceration in our provincial jail.
Each week that goes by sees the situation become more serious.   In order
to afford some relief to thc pressure
put upon our local institution, batches 1
ol prisoners have to be removed to the |
jail at Victoria or Nelson from time to
'-time, a proceeding that is both dangerous and expensive.   Over 180 prisoners  were  so   remove!   during   the
year just ended.     It i3 certain   that
sooner or later our jail will have to be
enlarged.    With    the    strong    probability of an increase of crime, as the
population multiplies, it. is surely high
time that the work was taken in hand.
The reconstruction and enlargement
ol  this institution in   a manner   thai
would fit it to receive and retain  all
prisoners committed within this part
of ihe province would be an   advantage to the well-being   of the   general
community, would afford a considerable relief from worry and anxiety   to
The various officials charged with the
capture and detention of law-hrea'.ers.
and would be a distinct gain to   the
commercial interests of this city.   Th
importance of the last named   feature
will be apparent: when account is taken of th.e amount lost to the morchante
r>t New V estminster through the removal of 181 pilar nets from here   to
one of the other jails in the pro\ ince
The average -ost cf each prisoner detained in New Westminster jail is 50
cents per diem, which represents   In
the course of a year no less   a   sum
than $32,950.    Some allowance must.
���of course, be made for short term sen
fences;  but even   if one-'hird   is   deducted on this account, there yet   re
mains a total of over $20,000   which
lias heen lost by not being   spent  in
New Westminster.
We hope the government will take
Uns matter into consideration without,
further delay, and that Premier McBride will exeit his personal influence
in this direction, 30 that his native
city may enjoy the full advantage accruing to the presence of so impoitau:
an institution in her midst.
except at considerable cost;   but   we
hope care will be taken in connection
with the further seeti m or this Btreel
now under construction lo   secure   a
proper grade, bo that the roadway wil
i drain properly to the side channels,
Another matter for which tlie board
work: is res] onslble calls for com-
[ment.   This is the laying of sidewalks
on the side streets.    For instance the
'sidewalk on McKenzie street was t irn
| up from end to end just  at   a   time
���whin bad weather was almost  certain
'to be experienced.     The snow came;
and the work has heen left In a condition which renders the use of the side- ,
walk  impossible, to the great  annoy-;
anee and inconvenience of hundreds of
people who use this street every day.
If a little foresight had been exercised,
he presentment of I this work might have either been com
a strongjmenced aud completed befoie the bad
weather  came,  or  left    until  the   climatic conditions were   a little   more
seltied.

FRUIT   PESTS.
Editor, Daily Xews:
Sir���The public press of this province without distinction of party has
always given 11 iis department very efficient assistance; indeed, 1 have always held thai without the co-opera-
tion of the press we could never haw
enforced our horticultural regulations,
which are proving or such Immense
advantage to the fruit growing industry of British Columbia. 1 would,
therefore, take the liberty of request-
ins; you to grant me the use of your
valuable columns to direct the attention of all importers of nursery stock
to section  1 of the Horticultural Reg
ulations, which provides that certified
invoices of all shipments of nursery
siock, trees and plants, musl be furnished to the inspector of fruit pests
al Vancouver, at the time when such
shipments are delivered for inspection.
The reason for this is that when a
case of goods arrives, we know by the
Invoice what it should contain, and
are prepared  to check   the   contents
[over with the invoice. This greatly expedites the business of inspection and
I enables us to deal  promptly with ail
| importations.
It is clearly in the interests of the
importers that we should le able to
detect   any   mistake  that   may   have
Ibeen made in shipping the goods. All
this was carefully considered when the
horticultural rules were adopted, bin
unfortunately many of the   importers
i neglect to comply with ibis regulation.
! I would, therefore, urge thai a general observance of this rule be adopt-
j ed.
The importations   of   nursery   stock'.banking    business    transacted.
'are largely on the increase, and I am [ters of Credit Issued,   available
just   completing   additional   facilities
for inspection.
Our staff will be doubled this yea",
so that whatever delays may have occurred in the past may be avoided in
future, if the importers comply with
the regulation above referred to.

CITY   STREET  WORK.
Now that we have had some months
of experience with tlie new paved
roadway of Columbia street it is possible to judge of the general character
and suitability of the work. There are
one or two defects in connection  with
��� this road way which strike a layman.
Tbo most noticeable of these is the
faulty character of the grading. This
defect is   all   too   apparent   ln   wet.
-weather, when tbe water lays in
pools, whilst the street does not drain
away   by   the   side   channels,   as   it
: should do, but by the center. The rails
���of the car line thus practically he-
comes surface water drains.   This clr-
.tnnnstance produces a very unpleasant.
result, for when a ear is travelling its
���wheels splash up (he water for some
distance on either side, greatly to the
.discomfort of intending passengers
���waiting to be picked up. This grading
appears to us to be an entire reversal
���of the general rule obtaining in street
laying,   which   is   that   the   surface
���should be arched so that the center Is
Wghor than the sides. The fault Is one
i*.hat cannot now be easily   remedied,

the students' favorite theory of evolution. "We are here because we're
here-" prevented tlie entertainment
from becoming too conventional and
effectively filled in time of waiting for
the lecturer to appear.
How We Happened.
According to the account of the lecturer, scientists haven't all bothered
a great deal whether their theories
of the origin of life fitted in exactly
with that account which figures in the
opening chapters of Genesis. Way
back in the dim morning twilight   of
in these days, they'd be toasted brown
by the heat which would be generated
by the friction of their passage
through the earth's atmosphere. No,
sir, it can't be di.l."
Going   Some.
Just about the time that the aforementioned critics opined they had tne
Kelvin theory beaten to a frazzle. Ar
rhenius, a Swedish chemist, came to
the rescue with a modified presentation  of the  same proposition.    Somi
"There are two main objections. The
first and chief is that it does not account in the last analysis for the ori
(iin of life, but merely assumes that
life began somewhere else in tills universe, how and in what form it does
not explain. The burden which lies on
those who believe the theory Is to
prove that life did not originate primarily on this planet.
"If terrestrial forms of life owe their
origin io a form generated elsewhere,
the latter must have been specially lit
ted to begin aud continue life on this
globe. There are some difficulties In
undertsandlng bow an orgaulsm, even
if p escaped d< structlon In transit,
could find a terrestrial medium whicn
would permit it to thrive and reproduce it st if."
Prof. Macallum then proceeded to
discuss the chemical theories concern
ed with the beginnings of life. Jaw-
breaking, scientific terras, lengthened
out with letters of the Greek alphabet,
were used to describe the primal ele
ments of tbe matters thai go to make
up a man. Tbe individual is really n
community made up of a multitude ot
cells, each group differentiated to
some particular work. And the basis
of these cells were found in the mysterious chemical elements on which the
lecturer dwell at considerable length
The   Beginnings   of   Life.
"When we seek to explain the origiu
of life," said Prof. Macallum, "we do
not need to postulate a highly com
plcx organism such as we can sec
even with the low power of the microscope as being the primal parent of
all. but rather one which consists of a
few molecules only, and of such a size
that it is beyond the limits of vision

pounded the theory that the first h
ing form arose as the pro luet of the
action of physical and chemical forces
on the constituents of the water anl
the atmosphere, and   of   course   that
would  by  no means be accepted   as
orthodox by   present-day   theologians.
Lucretius, the Greek poet,  said  "the
earth has rightly received the name of
mother, since all things are begotten
of it, having been generated   by   the
rains and the warm mists formed by
the   sun."   And   this   belief   prevailed
even till the nineteenth century.   One
popular form in which is found expression was the idea that if a horse hair
were thrown into water and left there
for an  indefinite length   of   time   it
would  become   an   eel,   an   instance
which, by the way, the learned professor overlooked.   Investigators, observing that if meat were exposed to the
free air and sunshine at summer temperature, young forms of flies and other insects appeared on it   somewhat
mysteriously, jum] ed to the conclusion
that they had been gathered in some
mysterious way from the substance of

Arrhenius. "Under that influence you !
can reduce the time of the journey
from Centaur to the earth from 02,-1
000,000 years to a mere matter of 9000 [
years." That, of course, puts the me I
teorite corporation out of business.
Then the problem was to protect tbo l
germs from the intense cold of travelling through space and the equally destructive heat of friction incurre I In
the trip through the earth's atmosphere.
But it was pointed out that organisms had been discovered which could
be exposed to sunlight for a month
without undergoing injury, and also
that the spores or seeds of bacteria
I had lived even when kept at 20o de
grees below zero. Centigrade. In fact,
investigation proved that living micro
organisms might make a little journey

than tbey would incur from one day's
exposure to a spring temperature and

extremely small, tbe lecturer propounded the staggering question: "Did
conditions ever exist in the history of
the globe which favored the production by natural means of such ultra
microscopic organisms? The question
which 1 would make to this question is
an affirmative one."
And then, drawing evidence from natural sources, Prof, Macallum proceed
ed to elaborate and prove his theory
to the uttermost consideration. And
the mere layman who had sat out this
scientific discussion of life and the
mysteries of its origin, staggered out
with his brain awhirl, half persuaded
to join the ranks of the higher critics
and take a tilt with Hon. S. II. Blake,
et al.

New    York,Feb.    1.���The    Tribune's!
London correspondent rabies:    No lit-
tie stir has been occasioned in church
circles by a remarkable   letter   from;
the Bishop of London expressing his1
strong disapproval of the act imi of thei
chancellor of the diocese In Issuing li j
censes  for the  marriage of divorced
persons or of a man with his deceased
wiles sister.    The Issue if such   li
censes, though In accordance with the
civil law, has never received the Banc-'
. tlon  of the church, and   the   bishop ���
i maintains that  it  is contrary to the
practice and custom of the diocese.
So strongly dees be tee] on the Bub j
heel thai hr' forbids all licenses In his
! name without his previous consent  ta ���
i writing.
The difference between the bishop .
I and the chancellor is one of old stand-
ing,  but  the present  action  is  due  to
thr" objection  taken  in certain quar ,
ters to the remarriage of a woman petitioner is a recent divorce suit.
The diocesan chancellor has been in :
the habit lately of issuing licenses un-
der  his own  hand and   seal,  without j
the bishop taking any part in the pro
ceedings.    Ills view  is that  the appli-
cant has a tight to a license as a mat- |
ter of law. and that it remains for him
or her afterwards to find a clergyman i
willing to solemnize the marriage. In ,
some directions the   attitude   of   the
bishop is held to be a long step on the j
road to the   disestablishment   of   the
Church of Kngland.
