up. At the upper steel arch bridge,
one mun, Mimon Abohbot, is known
by the appellation, "Cupid." He greets
new arrivals with a hearty welcome
to Canada and assures them thai this
is just the place to gel married.   He
offers bis services with the information that he is a government agent to
look after such things.    He takes the
bashful pair 10 a license commissioner, gel the necessary document,

he will give away the blushing bride,
guide the groom's trembling Wind, or
render any oilier assistance. For this
he is paid by the happy husband (5.

commissioner, and frequently $1 from

Reduction of From 10 to  15 Per Cent

Ottawa, Jan. 6. The oj eratlon of
the municipal electric light and power  planl   (lining   the  pasl    year   has
', heen bo successful from ihe financial
standpoint   thai   the commission  will
'probably   recommend   to   the  council,
next   February  a  reduction  of  from
ten to fifteen per cent  in the prices
now charged consumers for light, The

This   surplus,  after   providing   for  renewal  fund, etc.,  vvill  alow   :,  furtherS
reduction   nexl   year  from  the  pres }

If the municipal plant reduces rates
there Is, of course, every reason to believe th;,!  the Ottawa   Electric   company  vvill make similar reductions, BO
that   there  will   be  a   lowering of the
charges all round,   The Ottawa Electric company has had a good year, as,

C A. Paige Managing Director I
A year ago Mayor Lee vvas engaged.
cn inviting the citizens of New West
minster to place the management of
municipal affairs iu his hands, lie
charged the late administration, and
jxurficiilarly its head, wth all kinds of
shortcomings and mismanagement,
.and pledged himself, If the ratepayer* would elect him, to give them a
:���_*���&, honest, efficient and economic
government, it was as the result of
jfx^se promises, to do far better than
his predecessors, that lie was elected.
llis worship condemned the financial arrangements then existing, and
���tierlared that lie would place tlie lln-
��mi*8 of tlie city upon a good, sound
basis: that he would have pro. less
and improvement all along the line.
Ue pledged himself to provide "clean
Streets, lanes and alleyways; permanent sidewalks; a fair and equitable
ji��.sessment; cle:ui and efficient administration of civic at'l'airs,; improvement of public parks', a public oiscrs
BtB of all matters of civic policy";
ns> "one man government," and no
"star chamber" methods.
What has Mayor l-.ee done to give
a any of these things? Are the city
finances in a good, sound condition,
.and does tlie balance sheet for the
year show a sum on the credit side?
lias nny policy heen initiated Which
has provided tlie city with clean
���streets, lanes and alleyways? lt is
not necessary to go out to the outlying parts to see how little has heen
��iwie in this respect. Tlie coniii ioa
of busy thoroughfares, such lor instance, tis Lorne, Clarkson, McKenzie
and half a dozen other st ects in the
i.��ry heart of tlie city Is shameful.
Una any improved metho.l of assessment, been formulated which gives
loetter or more equitable rights to the
ratepayer? The method of assess-
today is precisely the same as it was
a year ago. All the eld evils and
abuses still exist and Mayor Lee has
not moved a linger to remove them.
What    Improvements    have    h en
nvatle   in  connection  with  our  public
narks?    Absolutely no.hing lias been
���tone in  this resi eet.    Have matters
Ot importance to the city been freely
nnd   openly   discussed?     Hava   there
(been  no star chamber metheds aid
no autocratic  action  on  the  part   of
t.rte chief magistrate?    It is too well
texiDwn  that many  matters (f import
ao  the  citizens   liave  been   smuggle.!
Kbrougb in a quiet way.    Does Mayor
Ijl-c consider that his action"in regard
to  the   correspondence   between   1 im-
.��lf   and   the   officials   cf   tie,!!.   C.
Electric' Railway    company,    and his
conduct  in  regard to the  signin;  of
the che iue for the Ii. A. &. I, Society
���to name only two Instances���were
.surli as to show that he has not t.iken
advantage  of  tlie  position  c nferred
.upon him by tlie citizens, to play th.-
rait of a dictator and an autocrat?
Where,   oh   where,  can   we   see  ! n
���evidence of a clean aud efflcint administration?
.Mayor Lee will find it difficult to
convince the electors that he has carried out the i U.lges, tr in f;:ct my
part ul t) e.n, lie so solemnly made
twel e months age, . r tl at le las
���done anyt. lng t i Improve the position
���imti pros eefs cf the Koyal C ty. Ex-
���uept for the progress she has naturally m;uic, v. 1 i.'.i his worship could not
swjll jirevcnt, but which he might
hrivf* considerably enhanced, New
Westminster has benefited In no way
'/rom the Lee regime.
Inasmuch as h:; has shown himself
unable to improve the administration
or our city, Mayor Lee must be stood
Aside and a better man put in his
place. That man is tefo e the elec
tors in the person of Mr. T. J. T.app.
The address of this candidate, delivered to the crowded meeting at St.
llama has hall on Thursday evening,
revealed an experienced and capable
administrator. Mr. Trapp has won
the liorrorable position which he now
'���"nolds by solid husiness ability, and
S* wiU apply the sane and practical
methods of business to tiie administration of New Westminster's affa rs
In this way the hest possible re ulti
will be gained at a minimum cf cost.
In respect to the impoitant question of assessment, iustead of the Inactive policy of Mayor Le?, the progressive candidate proposes the adoption of the single tax system, wliich
has. worked so advantageously in
Vancouver and other cities, and wou d
te of immense assistance to the le-
velopment of New Wcstm nster.
Then, too, Mr. Trapp avows his belief in the encouragement of all railroad undertakings and his intention
of introducing a policy to this end.
The future progress and greatness of
tbis city depends very largely Indeed
upon an intelligent appreciation of thfl
advantages conferred by the entry of
railways and the establishment of t.ei-
mfnals on the Fraser river. But whilst
Mr. Trapp shows that, he possesses
this sense of appreciation, Mayor Lee
lias Bpent bis year of ofllce in oppos-
an* railway enterptlse and ln setting
the city at loggerheads with a nro-
_.rnssive rallvyay undertaking which
���desires to make New Westminster the
.'headquarters of Its great syftem.
Finally,   instead   of   treating   the
members of tlie council in a way that
���diat^esta that they are not worthy of
'4��nslderation, as his worship has done
in sundry instances by taking import
���ant steps wthout consulting them, Mr.
"Trapp declares his intention of work
lng harmoniously in association with
those who are elected rs alJe men by'
i*be: ratepayers.

the game looks like.
"If some active steps are not taken

New York, Jan. 6.���If the firemen
of Jamaica Hay had heen called on to
extinguish    a    blaze  yesterday   they
would not have had much success, hut I
there would have heen enough roifkteilj
eels to feed a goodly part of the town |
for ti day or two.   According to a man j
who   doesn't   drink,   about   sixty-two,
thousand linear feet of eel came out
of  the  fire   plugs   yesterday   when!
Frank Bachman, foreman of stable 1-.
of th.e    stieot  Cleaning   department,
couldn't     get     enough   water   for   his
hoi ses, and tinned en a tii e plug io
see  if that   would  solve tlie mystery
as  to  why   the  faucets  in  thc   stable
would only trickle.
Willi lhe first bucket of water that
escaped from the hydrant theie also
escaped six eels, wliich, with a little
j hand-painted effect, would liave passed tor snakes. After these came
twelve eels, and then came twenty-
four that were the largest ever. Small
boys saw tlie hydrant issuing eels at
a terrific pace, so tliey went to an-
' other hydrant  and turn id it on.
The eel population of the big water
main seemed endless. Other hydrants
; were turned on. and still  there  were
eels   until   they   were  past   measuring
or  counting,     Men  and   women  came
and gathered them up in baskets and
' took them home.
Tlie feature of the regular weekly
market yesterday was the scarcity of
almost all lines of produce.
Partly owing to the tact of last
week having been a holiday market,
and consequently upsetting the trade
to some extent, and mostly owing to
the tact that the Beaver, which is
generally relied on lo bring most ut
the up-rlver produce to tlie market,

Friendly   Relations  of  Statesmen
casion   Surprise.
Washington, Jan. 6.���The facts that
President Taft and ex-President Koo-
sevelt are carrying on an active correspondence,  that  the   president   has
solicited and received the advice and
'assistance of liis predecessor on  im-:
portant international affairs, and that
iney    exchanged   Christmas    felicita-1
tions of a cordial nature were learned with considerable surprise by poli-1
ticians in Washington to lay, although
these facts had been known to those
in  the confidence of the two statesmen for some time.    To a few insurgents who have hoped to profit from
I a  break  between  President  Taft and
I ex-President Roosevelt the news came
i as a disappointment, but by most of
! the  progressive,  as  well  as  by  many
! of tlie regulars, it  was  welcomed as
an augury of success in 1912,
Although tliose close to these two
I statesmen  have been  aware of  what
I was going on for several  weeks, they ;
had been informed under a pledge of
confidence, and  it  is  doubtful  if the ���
facts would have become public now j
had   it  not  been  for  a   story  printed1
here unler a N'ew York date line this
morning, which asserted that William
Loeb.   jun.,   was   in   a   decidedly   em- ;
barrassing  position   because   he   had j
been requested to take charge of tlie j
interests   of   the   president    in   Xew |
York,    and,   having    consented,   had j
been obliged  to  bteak  with   Colonel
Roosevelt.    It was asserte I that both j
| President Taft and Colonel  Roosevelt
were seeking to control the New York |
delegation   and   that   Mr.   Loeb    had
i been   obliged   to   take   ri les   agalnsl
'��� his  life-long  friend  and  former chief.
