is the latest announcement of th��
B. C. Telephone company operating in
New Westminster, 'lhe cuange applied to all phones equally, whether
business or otherwise, the rate now
being $0.50 per month gross charge,
subject as before to a rebate of $1
on all payments made before tho
lfcth of the month. Old contracts

the new scale.
This change was intended to havo

middle of lost month, and it appears
that now subscribers, of whom the
company claims there have not beeu
a few, have been quietly taken ou at
the new rates for about a month,
without a word of complaint having
leached the outside world.
When asked what was the reason
of this advance, Mr. A. Matthison,
commercial manager of the local
branch, replied that It was on account of the great extension of tho
company's business, the' ine;easing
amount of capital that is being in-
vested in Its business and the consequent demand for dividends. "You
must remember, too," said the manager, "that the more people that a
subscriber can    speak    to over    the

B. C. Electric Company Issues Official
Statement���Cannot Violate

Vancouver, Dec. 17.���On Saturday
night tbe British Columbia Electric
Railway company issued the following statement regarding the Impasse
created by the Point Grey franchise
decision: "The B. C. E. Railway company wish to state that they have discontinued their service on tbe Sasa-
lr.aat street line and on Shaughnessy
Heights, south of Sixteenth avenue,
on account of an order of the court.
By the decision of tbe court the company is no longer allowed to run cars
in the municipality of Point Grey.
According to this order tbe municipal
council baa no right to grant the B.
C. E. Railway company the right to
run their cars and if there v/ere an
accident resulting ln loss of life, the
company's officers might be held
criminally liable. The officers are
unwilling to take this risk and tne
company Is unwilling to run Its cars
ia violation of an order of the court.
"The settlers' rates on the Lulu
Island line bave been put back to
where they were before this franchise
was granted. Although a reduction of
rates was not specifically mentioned
in this franchise yet there was a
verbal agreement that the rates woul J
be reduced. Now that the franchise
has been drclared invall.l the company's officers do not feel that they
can ln Justice to the stockholders
grant the reduced rates which were
given in consideration for the franchise."

Washington, Dec. 17.���Because of
a protest by the Russian ambassador
to President Taft against tbe language of tbe Sulzer resolution abrogating the treaty of 1832 with Russia, it was reported on Saturday that
the senate would pass, either on Monday or Tuesday, a moulded resolution.
That President Taft regarded as
serious the situation arising from the
Russian protest tbat adoption of the
Sulzer resolution would be inconsistent with existing friendly leiations,
was indicated wben five members of
the cabiuet were summoned for' a
special meeting. Secretary Knox, Attorney General WIckersham and Secretaries MacVeagh, Meyer and Nagel
were i resent.
Modified But Effective.
Tbe modified resolution will abrogate tbe treaty as effectually as the
house resolution, but will leave out
the long recitals of tho house document, especially the declarations that
Kussia had violated the terms of the
treaty.
Strong pressure, it was said, would
be brgusSJ to be?i on the house to
accent the simplified resolution.
The Russian ambassador, George
Bakmeteff, called at the White House
and formally protested against tbe
propose.! abrogation of the treaty of
1832 with Russia on the giound that
such action would be inconsistent
with the long friendship that has existed between the two countries.

' "OLD MORTALITY."
Statue to Scott's Character Has Bon
Erected at Qarpsl GUn.
Through the genius of Sir Walter
Scott the name of "Old Mortality"
is known far beyond the bounds of
Scotland, and everyone who ha*
heard of the persecuted Covenanters
:s familiar with his real name. There
are few churchyards in Galloway,
especially in tho County of Wigtown,
where his handiwork may not still
be seen.
A native of Dumfries, James Pav
terson was by trade a stonemason,
but for the greater part of his life he
exercised his craft without fee or
payment.
His absorbing pass'on for the
Covenanters led him to give up horn?
and friends and lo wander for 40
years over the wild moors, in tho
lonely glens, and from churchyard
to churchyard, to erect a ston*
wherever a martyr of the Covenant
lay.
A sincere devot'on led this venerable renovator of tombs to drdicate
so many years of his existence to
perform this tribute to the memory
of these suflerini* people. Wherever
a grave existed "Old Mortality" wa��,
sure to be seen busily at work bent
on his pious task with his chisel and
mallet, and his old white pony grating by his side. '
His last peregrination was in the
neighborhood ol Bankend. eight miles
from Dumfries, when he waa suddenly taken ill and wai found on the
roadside in a dying state. Kind
hands removed the old pilgrim to a
friendly house, where he passed to
his rest in a few days.
He was born in 1712 and died in
HIMALAYAN    TRIBES.
Savages Whoss Jungles   British Are
Now  Attacking.
The various sects comprising the
Abor tribe may be said to occupy the
slopes of the Himalayan range in the
vicinity of the Dibong and Dihang
rivers, tributaries of the great Brahmaputra as it debouches from the
watershed which divides our territory in Assam from the regions of Tibet. Although Abors may at times
be seen in the bazaars of Sadlya, our
advanced frontier post, no white
man has as yet penetrated into the
Abor country, the policy of the government of India being the rigid exclusion of one and all from this "no
man's land" except the lawful owners. There are kindred trbies, viz,
the Mlshml Abors, to the east, and
the Daphla Abors, to the west, which
are more or less of a peaceful character; but the Bor Abors are of a
very different nature.
No  Roads, Few Pathways.
In 1874 an expedition against the
Daphla Abors was made to recover
some Indian native children who bad
been taken away from one of the
frontier tea gardens, and some years
ago the Mishmi Abors became aggressive and it became necessary to
organize a military expedition to
quell the lawlessness of its members.
Speaking generally, this vast extent
of mountainous country Is not only
particularly steep and rugged, but is
completely covered with gigantic
tree forest containing tangled masses
of undergrwoth consisting of giant
ferns, malacca cane, bamboo and
various other tropical plants. There
are no pretensions to roads, and such
pathways as do exist are mere anl-

Villages of Bamboo.
Tho Abor villages are built entirely of bamboo, and this most useful
plant is also brought into use as a
means of protection. Pieces of solH
(male) bamboo aro hardened to almost the density of steel by being
placed in hot asheB; they are then
sharpened at one end and stuck into
the ground at an angle so as to
wound the foot of an enemy daring
to approach. These are called pan-
ecs aie so strong and sharp that they
round the ullage and are generally
concealed under leaies. These pan-
ees are sjo slronj.- and sharp that they
' will easily penetrate a soft boot or

pieces of bamboo placed horizontally

Tatton SyKei, tne first, father nf the
present baronet, is said to hnve seen
seventy-six 8 . Legers, the last bein,' in
1861, just fifty years ago. A stranger
once in Doncaster during the races
asked a landlord what there was worth
teeing. "Hast seen Sir Tatton f" queried Boni'.ace. "Oh, yes," was the reply. "And hast seen Volti?" (Volti-
geur, a popular Yorkshire horse, wiu-

guest. "Then," said the landlord, with
a sigh, "there's naught else worth

Damp and  Unhealthy.
Owing to the dense nature of thi
forest the climate is very damp and
unhealthy, especially during the rainy
season, when the streams and mountain torrents are much swollen and
quite Impassable. For this reason no
expedition could be sent earlier than
the cold season punish the Abhors
for their cruel and treacherous massacre of Noel WlIllaniBon and Dr.
Gregoreon, with their party of thirty-
five natives, which took place ln tho
summer. A force of some li500 men

Chinese   Names.
It is apparently the Intention ofthe
revolutionaries to obliterate altogether the old distinctions between
Chinamen and Manchu. One of these
was that whereaa a Chinaman had
three names, a Manchu had two.
Yuan Shi Kai, for example, is proved
a Chinaman by his triple name,
whereas the members of the late ministry had dual names, and were thua
proclaimed Manchus. It is now decreed that the Manchu is to acquire
a third name, and the old distinction,
which was oTtcn helpful to tbe European student of Chinese affairs, wlll
thus vanish. -.

philosophy  that seemed  Inimical   to

reiition could, Reid thought, be made
ou  l hilosophlcal grounds. I
Held   thought  that   the   flrst   step
necessary was a thorough analysis of
oripiual data of experience,    ln thiB j
analysis and In their theory of knowl-1
edge he thought   the  empiricism  of
Locke, Berkeley and Hume had been
Inadequate.   Locke had said that tho
reality inherent ln things we saw was
"Something   we   know   not   what," j
from   which    sensations   proceeded. |
Berkeley had said that God was the
source from whom our sensuous ex-1
pei lence   came   direct.      Hume   had!
claimed  that  there   was  nothing   In'
exrerier.ee but presentations and certain     regularities     of    association
among them.    Reid,  fee ing  tbnt religion and morality were eudnr.seieJ,
because this empiricism  shut   throi j
out from the realm of knowledge, declared that there were certain native
notions of the   intellect,  immediate,
ultimate und inexplicable, other than
mere sensuous  Impressions.    Amon;
these notions was the irresistible conviction that what we experienced to
be present was actually present. Reid
used  these  so-called "native  convictions" as a basis for religion.

was rather running away from than
meeting the problem. How long a religious creed, resting only upon certain "convictions," dogmatically declared to be "ultimate and Inexplicable," would serve the spiritual needs
of men and stand the test ot criticism
was uncertain.
The next outstanding representative of the Scottish school was Sir
William Hamilton, who built upon
Reid's "Viginai notions.'^ Among
these notions were those of self, the
worl.l, and God. We knew that there
was an external world Independent
of us, because we were conscious ot
the resistance of things external to
our organism, because without this
facts would not be related as they
were in consciousness. |
Ibis distinction of Hamilton's had
a telling effect on hls successors, and
led directly to the religious agnosticism of Mansel, Comte and Spencer. It
was a natural step, after asserting
the Incomprehensibility of God. and
all religious doctrines. Spencer was
led to say, "I bow down before the
utterly Inscrutable, but will give my
time to what can be known."
Comte took one step further, when
he stated that theology and metaphysics wero alikp vain, except as necessary steps ln the evolution  ot  the
mind, which culminated ln the exclusive devotion, to lawB and relations
of phenomena. Kenco for him, lelig-
ion w&s a thing of history.
Dr. Tracy's cri'lclnm of the Scottis;i
school anJ those who followed It was
mainly that they gave an inadequate
analysis of the piocesses of experience. They ignored the oigani/.ing
principle, by virtue of which the
scattered data of experience became
the "objects" as we know them.
I At the root of their thought was a
I dualism between two kinds of ideas
In the mind, which were the relative
and the absolute, knoVable and unknowable. Yet Spencer himself was
Inconsistent when be talked of God
as an "Absolutely Unknowable Potter," for surely power had a positive
meaning.
"The only way," he continued, "to
get out of the difficulty is to get u.
uuity of things In consclouness, anu
au ultimate unity in the Deity, to
which the Unite unity is related, and
alike In kind, though far bhoit in degree. Though man may never attain
to the All Comprehensible, our lives
may be a process towards him.

Etiquette for Murderers.
The trials   of self-confessed   murderers who wish to be arrested are
related ln the Matin by M. Clement
Vautel.
Some time ago a man named
Berges was stabbed to death In the
Place de Malakon at Algiers. Three
men were arrested on suspicion, bul
as they proved their Innocence, were
released, and the matter was shelved.
A few days ago, however, a man called qt.the oiinke of the pollce commissary and said to that oitlclai.
"My name is MariusVvorra. 1 killed
Berges, and this ls how I did it" The
commissary listened to the man's
confession and said: "You bad better
see my secretary."
Tbe secretary also listened to the
man's confession, and after a little
reflection, satd: "Now, look here,
my good man, this ls not tba way to
get arrested. You must write us a
letter confirming the verbal statements made to us. Then we'll be
able to attend to you. Now, get
along." The man left the office, and
perhaps because he was not a good
writer, has not been since seen ln |
Algiers.

At a Grosvonor Squaro dinner party
an elderly duchess had opposite to
her a countess of American nationality. "You American girls," said the
duchess, "have sucb poor complexions, haven't you? You look so pasty
beside our rose leaf English maids.
Wbat do our noblemen flnd so attractive ln your yellow faces?" Tbe American countess, blinded by nd Illusions, laughed coldly. "You see,
duchess," she said, "It's not our yellow faces that attract your noblemen:
It's our greenbacks."

No one
toe Premier's soteech at the Canadian
Oub banquet ln^New York wlll have
��ny cause for iomplalnt, says the
Ottawa Free Pr4sss* Mr. Borden presented the case of Canada aB a country which knows what,It wants, an.i
when It makeafup Its mind knows
bow to do Us dJy definitely and dls-
tinctly. The sAech^the flrst ono
made by Mr. B#rden; in rthe United
States since hls^ acopssjoh to the
premiership, naturally partook of International importance, and must,
therefore, have bfen regarded by tho
politicians of thefUnlted States as of
political value.    J
But we here iii'. Canada know that
there is no need "for a, declaration of
friendship on the' pari' Ot Canada as
regards the Ur.itefd States. The verdict of the peopli (principally, lt is
true, the verdict of the people of
Ontario) on September' 2f last in re-
ganl to the reciprocity agreement was
In no sense a declaration pf hostility
to the United States. 'ft:*as, in Mr.
Borden's own words, a declaration ol
the determination ;,of the people of
Canada to remain Independent, and it
-eras well that the Premier should
lmve taken the first, opportunity which
offered to make this declaration to
���the people of the United States.
We are bound together in such personal and business intimacy that any
friction in that intimany would be
disastrous, not onljf nationally and
commercially,  but domestically.
We here in the nottiiem aone have
nothing but friendship for our couslna
to the south. We trade with tliem
���every day. We have intimate personal relationships with relatives or
friends who have gone to thc States,
Just as thousands of Americans have
similar relationships with their
.friends who have come to OaAada.
There may  be differences of opinion as to the manner ln which those
relations  can best be    assured,    but
there can be no denial ot    the     desire ot tne people of C^sj^a y> live
on  the    most    friendly    terms    poS'
���ible with their relatives of the United States.
And, so far as we are concerned,
we would like our AjitMUMMi friends
to understand that Mf. Uordgn spoke,
mot as the leader pf a fictoilous
party, so much as the representative
of a united Canadian people, when
lie told the Canadian Club of New
York that there was ^noantagonism
���on Canada's part toward^ the United
States, merely tf ratine Ontario rejected a fair trade agt foment between
the two countries.      i

Out by Three to Nothing-
Other SSport.
After a fast and bright game on
-Saturday tbe senior amateurs beat
the ThlstleB at Moedy square by
three goals to nothing. It was during
the Becond half of the match that the
Westminster boys really settled down
Into their game, and showed what
sort of football they are capable of.
During tbe first half no goals were
acored by either side, although lt
appears that the local men had some-
wnat the better of the argument. At
half time, however, McAllister changed the order of the team, sending
Seggie up from the half back line to
take Chiel's place at centre, moving
Chlel to inside left, and bringing
Sreedie back to Seggie's place. This
had the effect of at once bringing the
forward line together, and a practical demonstration of tbe success attending the change was given by the
three goals which were scored.
As a whole, then, the team played a
��ood game. During goalless first
half New Westminster combination
was not quite all that lt might hare
been. Ferguson and,McAlliEter. how
ever, were playing conspicuously well,
as they continued to do ln the second   half after    the    changes    were
Two New Discoveries in Trees Made
in  Stanley  Park���Deer Donated
to   Herd.
���Vancouver, Dec. IT.���Two big forest monarchs, oue of them larger
even than the much-photographed big
hollow tree on the English Bay side,
were discovered yesterday in Stanley
Park. The discovery waa made while
park workmen were cutting a new
bridle path through a hitherto unexplored portion of the park, llie new
bridle path runs in a general north
and south direction from the Second
Beach right through to Proapeot
Point. And by a peculiar coincidence, e, h,
these monster trees are located less'
than 100 yards' from the spot where
the bloodthirsty cougar was shot after it had terrorized the neighborhood
and almost wiped out the deer and
goat herds belonging to the park zoo.
Official announcement of the discovery of these giant trees which wi.l
form a notable addition to the attractions of the park, was made  at

1'hrough the kindness of Mr. A.

donation of two coast deer to take

man whose occupation is both novel
and profitable, "of getting a couple
of good bloodhounds as an added protection. Insure them? No company
will write a risk on silver foxes. I
guess I'll have to worry along the

BURDEN
IN   PHILIPPINES
Lanoa, Mindanao, P. I., Dec. 17.���
Forty-two Moro outlaws were killed
bere today in an engagement with a
'detachment of American scouts.
There were no fatalities on the American side. The battle occurred in
connection with the campaign for
suppressing organized brigandage
among the Moros.
The disarmament of the entire
Mjro population of Mindanao and
Jt lo was ordered by the American
military authorities three months ago,
following a number of murderous attacks on Americans. Since that time
the troops have been actively engaged ln earning out the orders. Most
of the ohlefs gave up their anna
peacefully, but there bas been a series of sharp engagements with bandits. The casualties among the Americans have been few.
The Modern Chinese School.
An Englishman who has been
teaching in China for twenty-five
years reports that tbe advanced modern spirit permeates even to the
schools. There is hardly a schoolboy
at Cheng-tu, for instance, who ls not
acquainted with the outlines cf thc
history of the French Revolution, and
they have all followed the progress or
nationalist ideals in Turkey, Persia,
India and Egypt.

Much discussion ls taking place In
Ice hockey circles as to the disposal

the rule of playing six men instead

and lt has been suggested that between each pair of teams two
matches should be played, one with
six men and one with Beven a side.
However an Alexandrine suggestion
to cut the Gordlan knot has been
mooted, namely, by presenting another and overwhelmingly gorgeous
trophy to be controlled by the National Hockey association. Whether
this scheme will be brought to fruition still remains doubtful, but those
who claim to bo on the Inside, believe
that"President T. E. Quinn wlll take

TREE  WAS PLANTED
BY  VICTOR   HUGO
There is an acacia tree in the boulevard Raspall, just at the entrance
to the rue Notie Dame des Champs,
that pretends to be of distinguished
blah, says the Temps. The tree, now
old and ugly, has l,<rcn spreading its
skeltering limbs over the side walk
year iu and year out unnoticed, but j
just as it was about to l:e cut down
tb make way for a new building Its I
lame became known.
"it is the tree of Victor Hugo" said
the oldest Inhabitant of the nelghuoi- !
hood. "He planted it there when he
lived in the rue Notre Dame des
Champs, and' the J^mous old acacia,
was the inspiration of several of his
poema, particularly 'Les Orier.tales.     i
So instead of cutting down the tree I
the builder ga\c oruers that the ai'cni-
teet should build around it.   As a result the spreading acacia has a-little j
yard of ita own, with a neatly painted I
Iron fence facing the street.    Behind
lt outgrows its new quarters by running up close to   the windows of the
house.
But now corao the spoilers of all
romance, the materialists. Some incredulous persous, delving Into history, discovered that Victor Hugo's
residence in the rue Notie Dame des
Champs shortly after his marriage
was some distance from the acacia
tree and that section was already well
supplied with shade trees, so they
laughed at the statement that the
tree Is of distinguished birth. Tho
building contractor asserts that he
has proof for his statement, and an
attempt will bo made to elucidate the
mysttry. The tree, by the way, is
fully satisfied whichever way the discussion ends.

Singing Hymns Made Her Lonesome.
Very human are the stories one
will glean as they meet from time
to time with patients who have been
in the Muskoka Free Hospital for
Consumptives. A newspaper reporter
has been digging up some cases of
this kin:!. When visiting the hospital, he says: "I chattod wilh a young
woman of perhaps 25 summers, ruddy, pretty, smiling and happy, even
though at the time she was confined
to bed." She told rather a touching
story in these words: "Three years
ago my sister died of consumption. 1
think 1 caught it from her, having
been in verj' po��r health at the time.
There was nothing for me to do, if
my life was to bo spared, but to come
to this institution. 1 would not Hvo
up hope. I like being here all right,
only when they aro singing hyrona
on Sunday 1 feel a bit lonesome and
homesick. The doctors are all kind,
and the nurses all lovely."

that crabs keep to their own locality,
and that, If taken a distance away, it
ts their Instinct to return to their
birthplace and feeding ground. A
number of crabs brought from Yorkshire and liberated off the Lincolnshire coast as far south as Skegness,
walked home to Yorkshire again, and
in doing so they had to travel distances ranging from 45 to 85 miles,
and bad to cross the Humher. Not
one of the Yorkshire crabs has been
retaken south of Its place of liberation,, and of those that did not return to their old haunts nearly every
one was recaptured at a spot which
showed that they had traveled a
considerable distance towards home.
Two crabs, a male and female, originally taken in the same trap off tho
Yorkshire  coast,   were   returned    to
the  sea  at  different  points off   the :
Lincolnshire    coast.      Nine    months j
later both were retaken, again ln thc j
same trap, and on th�� ground frcm
which they were at flrst taken.
