' Two Doors from Geo. Adams' Grocery
Toronto, Feb. 16.���After remaining
in hiding in the woods for ten nights
witii the temperature ranging between 30 and 10 below zero, provincial
constables in Northern Ontario made
tiie Diggest seizure of liquor yet reported to the headquarters of the department. A whole carload of whisky
and beer was seized in transit on its
way to Cochrane, where it was to be
distributed to blind pi,., ers and others
in the unlicensed districts there. The
liquor was shipped In the regular way
in a sealed car, but the constables suspected a large shipment of liquor, and
so seized the entire car.
Full particulars of the seizure have
not been received. Hon. Mr. Hanna
Was notified of the seizure, and at once
had a conference with Kudo Saunders,
chief officer of the license branch, J,
E. Rogers, superintendent of the provincial police, and S. A. Armstrong,
deputy provincial secretary.
For weeks past the provincial police
have heen waging an energetic campaign against the sale of liquor in the
north, and some of the reports sent
in by the constables read like an order on a wholesale liquor house. One
constable alone in a month seized
more than 200 bottles of beer and
high wines, where only a few days
ago a shipment of three- cases of
whisky was confiscated, lt had been
shipped In three oil barrels, and tho
man, who shipped it, packed the bottles in the barrels in straw and filled
them up with water. He then labelled
the barrels gasoline, and if it had not
heen for the severe cold they probably would have leached their destination. The water in the barrels was
frozen, and the ice freezing out the
hung, the constable noticed the straw
In ice and wondered why it should be
in a gasoline barrel. He opened the
barrels and found three dozen bottles
of flne whisky. Several trunks which
had been checked were found filled
with whisky.
Every possible method of. getting
the liquor Into the north is heing
tried, but that of sending the stuff in
hy the carloads is a new one. Members of the opposition have criticized
the government because some of the
whisky sent into the north is shippe I
over the Temiskaming & Northern
Ontario railway, but the railway officials have no more idea of what is inside the packages and cars than anyone who looks at the outside of the
car. If a ear is secured and shippe I,
it is sealed at the point of shipment,
and the seal is not broken until it
loaches its destination, and if the shipping bills state that the car is loaded
with   furniture   the   railway    officials

Toronto, Feh. HI.���In the police
court today, Miss Appeline Holland, a
good looking, expensively dressed
woman of about twenty-seven years of
age, employed at a department store,
was charged with vagrancy aud remanded for a week for examination as
to her sanity. It is alleged that she
has been sending letters threatening
the life of Norman Cl. lleyd, a young
barrister, wbo is alderman for Ward
three. In one letter she declared that
she would shoot him. The last letter
was received February 1-, aud reads
as follows:
"Turn you blood sucker; you have
murdered all my flesh und blood. Remember, brute, you shall uot get out
of my hands. You cannot do nn jibing
for me after your cutting the llesh off
my hones, you have no heart, anyhow.
So come to a point of business with
me Hut I shall do my duty, and get
a brute like you out of sight. Any
: time Will suit me. 1 remain your
j 'murderer.1
"(Signed I  Miss Appeline Holland."
The   writing   was    legible    but    the
| characters   were   ill   formed   and    the
spelling  poor.     Mr.   lleyd  turned    the
letters over to the police and a warrant   was  issued.    On   Saturday    Mr.
lleyd's father saw the woman on the
street and pointed her ul to Detective
| Taylor,   who  arrested   her.     She  took
'her arrest quietly and refused lo talk
ibout the case.

The fad that so many attempts am
made to get liquor into the north, in

are seized monthly, proves that there

bottle of whisky can be purchased in
Toronto or Montreal at wholesale
prices for about 76 cents. In the north
it is easy to obtain anywhere from $",

Calgary, Feb. 10.��� In dismissing the
$10,(100 libel suit brought by R. T. Telford, M. L. A., of Leduc, against the
Calgary Herald, Mr. Justice Harvey
laid particular stress on tbe old truth
thut men who enter public life must
cultivate an external membranous Integument of elephantine non-sensitiveness.
A. L. Marks, Strathcona lawyer, held
Mr. Telford's brief. Mr. Walsh, K. C,
acted for the defendants.
"Pay the Piper," was the caption of
an editorial appearing in the Herald
issue of June 2. 1910, In the course
of the article reference was male to a
bet offered by Mr. Telford on the floor
jof the house in March of $500. And
the portion of the matter alleged to be
libelous was the sentence:

in llie discharge of his duties as a

A   Warning   to   Public   Men.
Justice Harvey's summing up bore
a warning to all men who go Into politics.    He said in part:

they must expoci that newspapers will
say things about them which will not

For whole hearted humor the American newspapei' man ia mighty hard to
beat, and the Daily News has just received a hook which proves the truth !
of that assertion. Last summer the
American Press Humorists' association members held their eighth annual convention in Montreal as practically the guests of the Grand Trunk
Railway Bystem, and the results of
their labors (?) are set forth in the
unbuyable hook now under review, and
published for private circulation by
the Grand Trunk Railway system. In
the matter of letter-press, wonderful
photographs and binding, the book has
no peers and those responsible for the
publication are heartily congratulated.!
: The .real pan of the work deals with
the speeches delivered and the stories
I told by the members at the lunch
given by W, E. Davis at the Isleway
: club, Lake St. Louis, .Montreal; and
fifty pages are lilled with unadulter
1 ated wit and humor.
Laughter,  according  to  a   leading
1 medical   journal,   "throws    the  diaph-
; ra.Lin     into     healthful     contractions,
shaking tlie liver and spleen on either
j side,   massaging    the    stomach    and
j bowels, titillating the lungs and heart,
clarifying the brain and sending fresh
I currents of blood tin ough the cerebral
I mass���that is a laugh that Is more po-'
; tent  than  nerviness, and has greater
! medicinal value than all the tonics in
j the world."   If this be true, and there
I is no reason to doubt the statement,
then the compilers of the hook under
��� review are to be heartily thanked for'
' sup] lying that sound medicine, laugh-
, ter, because those who have been priv- ���
ileged  to  read   the   book   have   been
laughing ever since.
Edmund   Vance  Cooks,  rightly  call-
! ed  one of the greatest  humorists   on
this continent, is telling tlie story:
The scene was an old country   village.    There  was  an old  lawyer who
seldom got a case, and he was in con-
versation with a farmer.    The farmer
had  an  old   spavinel  mule  which    lie
wanted to sell, but which lie pretended
he did not want to sell.   The lawyer
wanted   to  buy   the mule,  and   said,
"Jed, I would like to buy that mule of
yours."'   The   farmer   said,   "Well.    I
don't believe I want to sell that mule.
I I  have had ii  for a long time, and  I
: don't   want   to sell   it."    "Well,  would
you sell if you go' the price'.'"   To this
the farmer replied "Yes, If 1 got my
price."   "Mow  much  do you  want  for
the  mule'.'" asked the lawyer.    "Well,
1  don't  know;   how  much  would   you
give?"   "Oh, about fifty dollars." Fifty  dollars was agreed  upon   as   the
. price for the mule.    The farmer say-
| ing "Alright;   l  will take   that;   the
mule Is yours.    Where is the money'.'"
"Well, I will tell you what it is," said
tho  lawyer,  "business litis been a  little bad of kite, but  I am g��ing to get
some prett)  ��� on.    I will give you my
note of hand ; t three months." "Oh,
no you don't." i iid the farmer, "I have
enough of read ng matter now "
One of the hest thing in the book Is
the story told hy E. Warner, of Haiti-
more :
This is a story of two Xew York
newsboys, one of whom went by the
name of Cimmy. Cimmy was telling
the story, and said:

There is a great contrast between
lhe manner in which the present reciprocity agreement wiih Canada has
been produced and the previous one,
the only other reciprocity that has
ever been negotiated between the two
countries, says the Hoston Transcript. It was on June 5, 1854, that
Lord Elgin, at that time governor general of Canada, and probably the most
eminent of all the governor generals
that Canada has ever ha.l, with the exception of Lord Durham, negotiated a
treat; in Washington with the aid of
Francis Hincks, who was head of tlie
council. At that time it. was called
the province cf Canada, including Ontario and Quebec, or Lower and Upper Canada. Then the maritime prov-
inces were not apart of Canada, but
each was in the sanie position in which
Newfoundland is today. This is the
famous treaty which we have heard
"Lord Elgin floated through on champagne." One need not deny that Lord
Elgin entertained lavishly, and the
well known picture of the night when
some of the senators, accompanied by
the noble earl, went to another senator's house and insisted on that senator getting out of bed and producing
some potations for their benefit is an
amusing one. A great many stories
that are told of those days were undoubtedly the results of the too gieat
reading and believing of Laurence
Oliphant's letters. That gifted young
mun was then, and afterward In Canada an 1 China, Lord Elgin's private
secretary, and he showed great fecundity of resource in producing material
f���- m��� i���..��.      r*.        r .. , ..        maritime provinces
for his letters.    One of these letters \
desribing tte signing of the reciprocity treaty in the office of Secretary of
State  March  in   Washington   is  chai-'
"Lord Elgin reads the treaty aloud. |
It  is cheeked  by the secretaries, and j
the  aged  man,   Mr.   Marcy   (secretary,
of state)   listens,  while  he  picks   his'
teeth with a pair of scissors, or cleans '
out   the  wick  of a  candle  with   their
points, which  he afterwards wipes on
his grey hair."    The signatures were
attached just after midnight   and   to
quote Oliphant:    "There is something
mysterious    and    suggestive    in    the
scratching  of  a  midnight pen, for it
may be scratcVng fortunes or ruin to
toling  millions     1  retire to dream of
its  ithe treaty's)  contents and to listen in my troubled sleep to the perpetually recurring refrain of the three impressive words with  which  the pregnant document concludes, 'unmanufactured tobacco, rags. "
i    Tlie success of the treaty surprised
not only the Americans but the Canadians as well.      The treaty provided
that  both countries should  have   the
same right  in coast  fisheries.    It  was
agreed   that   Canada   should    levy   no
taxes on Maine lumber passing down
| the St. John  river.    Absolutely   free
trade  was  granted  hetween   the  two
.countries   in   grain,   flour,   livestock.
] meats,   lumber,   poultry,   eggs,   hides
ores, hemp and tobacco.    The   treaty
I was to remain in force for ten years, at
the expiration of which it  might   be
terminated by either party on twelve
months' notice     This convention was
undoubtedly   the   best   act    of    intercourse  with   the  United   States   that
Canada had ever secured. It was a
striking change from the old days of
bitter enmity, and as long as it remained in operation It was a source of great
profit to Canada, and really in those
ten years laid the foundation for the
prosperity which that country has
never ceased to enjoy. Its advantages to the people of the l'nited
States were not so generally admitted,
and this fact and other causes due to
Civil war entanglements led to its
prompt abrogation at the first opportunity.
There   was,    however.    In    1S71,   a
treaty negotiated In Washington by a
joint  high  commission   whose  Hritish
members were the present Marquis of
Ripon, then Lord de Grey, who was
chairman;  Sir Stafford Northcote, Sir
E.  Thornton, the  Hritish  minister to
the l'nited States: Montague Bernard, |
and Sir John A. Macdonald,.   The American commissioners    were Hamilton I
Fish,    secretary    of    state:    General
Schenck, Judge Nelson, Judge Hoar, of i
Massachusetts, and Senator Williams.
This  commission  was  called   to  con- j
sider the ownership of tlie isiand of.
i San Juan, off the coast of British Co-!
i lumbia, the boundaries between Can-:
, iida and Alaska; the admission of America   tO  Canada's   fisheries;   the  Alabama  claims;  and the   counter-claims
of Canada on account  of the   Fenian [
��� raids,   'l'he Alabama claims were sub- j
I mitted to arbitration; the claim to the
island of San Juan was referred to the i
German emperor, who awarded it  to
the l'nited States; the boundaries between Canada and Alaska were to be i
fixed   by engineers.   This left only the \
question of fisheries, and it was on this ]
question   that  the  court    argued   for.
I weeks.    An agreement  for a  term of j
twelve years was made by which lisli
and fish oil of one country should be ]
admitted duty free to the markets of j
I the other, and Americans were allow-j
ed the rignts of Canadian fisheries on !
| the payment of a lump sum.
it was at this joint high commission
that  the rights of navigation   on the!
j Great  Lakes  and  the   St.   Lawrence :
J were opened free to both cations.    It
j was   rather   an   ironical   part   of    the '���
| whole  incident   that   in   Canada   their
commissioners  were accused  of hav- j
ing bartered away the ri.hts of Can-1

are brought to bear, but tlie mayor re- j
sists  them all.     The fact  of his  re- |
sistence is then used to show the   lu-
roine that he is opposing the   railway ,
franchise for the purpose of personal
gain, even at the cost of the fortune of i
herself and all her friends. j
This has the effect of breaking the
engagement  between  the mayor and
the   heroine,   Dallas   Wainwright, and |
influencing her to accept the advances ,
of Mr. Gibbs, one of the promotors of j
the franchise graft.    The company includes  Harry  English, as the mayor:

Moore, as  Horrlgan, the boss:   John
Morris,    as    the    alderman;    Edward
Keano, as Gibbs. the broker;  Eleanor
Haber, as Dallas, the financier's daughter, and Florence Mack as the mother.
The play is in four acts, and will be
(presented with elaborate settings.

on their
native soil ? Our correspondent's remarks apply primarily lo the method
of dealing with the Indian reservations, prompted by the purchase of
the Songhee reserve at Victoria by the
government for seven hundred and
fifty thousand dollars. He points out
Ihat there are number of Indian reserves the acquisition of which is no
less important than that of the Song-'said he.
iiee. and remarks that the expenditure know it
for purchase of these may be represented by seven million rather than
seven hundred thousand dollars.
This by the way, however. There
is a much larger and more important
question involved In this matter,
namely the whole subject of the treatment of the Indian population of this
country generally. Mr. Julian comments upon the futility of the methods
now being adopted by the government,
and pleads for the institution of a
policy of enfranchisement for thesj
loyal and iudustrious people. He supports this plea by the expressed opinion of such men as the Dominion inspector of schools in regard to the
Metlakatla and Fort Tsimpsian tribes,
of Father Cocola in respect of the
Babine Indians, and of Archbishop
Dontenwell as to the Catholic Indians
generally. All of these authorities
agree that a portion at least of the
redskin people of this country read
and write English, have proved themselves capable of managing tlieir own
affairs, and express a desire to be
treated as citizens of the Empire by
being endowed with the privilege of
the franchise, and of holding land individually rather than in common.
The proposal may in some quarters
Vve regarded as a bold one, but we do
net think any one who    possesses    a
knowledge of the Indians, either from
history  or from  personal  association,
or both, will venture to question    Its
justice  or  the  moral   right  of  these
people to such an absorption into the
state.   This privilege would, of course,
be    granted,    as    our    correspondent
points out, only  to those who prove
themselves  fit to receive it.    But in
time,  by the education of the rising
generation, the greater portion of the
Indian community would become citizens in this way.   As a whole the Indians are a law abiding an.l    industrious i eo;i!e, i orsessing a knowledge
of certain  aus  peculiarly  their own,
and there i:; every reason to believe
that  they   would   become  a  strength
;ind a credit to this country.
Apropos of this question of the Indian policy, reference may be made
to a clever work hy Mr. Walter
McClintock, just published, under the
title of "The Great North Trail." In
this the nobility and strength of character of the Blackfeet tribe is cleverly set forth. It is a sad circumstance
that this race of great warriors and
noble spirits is departing to the setting sun of lost hopes. The author,
���who lived for years among that part
of the tribe which is located south of
the boundary line, and was a.lopted by
the old chief, Mad Wolf, as a son,
gives many interesting and touching
illustrations of the real beauty of the
simple religion of these people, a religion in which there is nothing that
is evil or cruel. "Before they became
contaminated by civilization, with
cheap alcohol, and the vices from
which as savages they were free, no
nobler people ever lived. Their fault
was that they never built. . . .Though
���the Hed Indian probably lived under
-similar conditions from the Stone age
till the middle of the last century,
gunpowder and cheap whisky have
well nigh unmade him."
Here is a beautiful prayer chant
which Mr. McCIintock gives in illustration of the simple nobility and faith
of the Blackfeet: "Great Sun-God!
Continue to give us Your light that
the leaves and grass may grow so that
our cattle will increase and our children may live to he old." And this
"Our Jlother (the moon) give us sleep
that' we may rise again like our father
(the sun). May our lives be strong
Slid may our hearts feel good towards
our white brothers, as we all are
your children." A great man of tho

to remedy this in choosing this committee next year. i
The service on the Great Northern
railway on the south side of the river
has been frequently under discussion,
and your committee has endeavored,
so far as possible, to procure tbe bast
results for this city and at the same
time satisfy the shippers in the other
municipalities. To this end we met
Mr. Burns, of the G. N. U., Reeve
Oliver and other representatives from
the south side and a service was in
augurated suitable to the conditions.
At the request of the board 1 was in'
attendance when the railway commis-'
sion sat in Vancouver, and, with Sec- j
retary Wade, brought the North road
crossing  before their notice,    urging
that some means be initiated to prevent accidents, as, at that time, it was
a menace to public safety.    The com-'
mission  decided  that  a   watchman  be!
j placed at the crossing, and this official,
is now on duty.
The  Canadian-Mexican and several',
of the   Weir  liners  have  visited  the'
port  during the year.    Captain  Wor I
snop, of the Canadian-Mexican line, is
firm in his stand that he must have I
150 tons cargo  before  he  will  make
New  Westminster a regular point  of
call.    At the present time the boats
of this company���should    they    have
leBB than  150 tons billed to Westmln j
ster���only call when they are taking
lumber to the south.   With B minimum
of 150 tons assured, I have every reason   to   believe  that   reduced   freight
rates would follow.    Speaking of the
visits of ocean liners generally,    this
| committee hopes that a broadminded,
22 J encouraging policy will be pursued by
all  officials  who  have intimate deal
lngs with the officers and managers ol
intermediate points, whilst the Chilliwack. or Fraser valley branch has
opened up, and shown great possibilities, to the merchants of the city. The
service on the Vancouver, via Central
Park, run has been improved by the
running of double headers. When tbe
new Burnaby route is opened, and cars
start on the quarter hour, the public
will have the choice of three routes
and the benefit of a lifteen minute service. With Columbia street double
tracked to Leopold Place, and the ad-,
dition of several loops, the city and
Sapperton services should be con-,
siderably improved. Work on the
l.ulu island line is reported to have
started. |
As  everything  relative,  directly   or
indirectly,    to    trf nsportation    corass
wil bin tbe province of this committee,
and with a keen sense nf the bearing
It has on our commercial future, we
would  like to state that  whilst it is'
particularly  desirable  that  the city's
interests  be  protected  to    the    very,
limit, we beg to express an earnest de j
sire that an adequate appreciation of,
the infliiennee and importance of the
U. C. Klectric company on the future
destiny of our city be fully grasped by-
all  wbo. at any time, negotiate with
them on our behalf.   It will only bo a
short   time   when   tbis   company   will
have to adopt" a system of centralization, and, according to our geographical position, on their system. Westminster Is the natural hub of tbeir operations; so, Mr. President and gentlemen, let us encourage them, let us by
our reports in the press and on the
street let them know thai wo want
them here, that we need them here,
that they need us and our good report,
and gradually develop a mutual spirit
of good will, enterprise and progress
that will truly bespeak the "live wire,"
go-ahead city we want Westminster
to be.
And, in the futute, when anyone
calls for the general manager at the
company's office in Vancouver, they
wlll be told that he, the manager, can
be found at the head office in New
All of which is sincerely and respect
fully  submitted  by

Every factor counts In tbe upbuilding of a city's trade and commerce.
The number of export cars leaving
the city with goods "Made in New

and we have pleasure In reporting
that, as near as can be estimated,
there is an average of lifteen cars per
The service both up and down the
river has been satisfactory, but the
Victoria-Westminster freight service
leaves much to be desired.
In ibis regard. I have reason to believe thai there is a possibility of another  boal.  slightly   larger  than    the

of having a resident agent here, preferably a member of our boar-,, and
