First  Ratepayers Improvement Association Formed���Alderman ���). J.
Johnston Presidsnt.
In the city hall last night Agnes
stieet latepayers organized the lirst
Ratepayers' Improvement association
to he formed in New Westminster.
Promoted by J. C. Blair, W. J. Kerr
and others the meeting was very
largely attended, and thirty-one signatures appear on the membership
roll of the new association. Officers
and a committee were appointed to
go thoroughly Into the question .of
paving, lighting and widening Agnes
street, those present being generally
agreed on tbe desirability of ut least
the flrst two of these Improvements.
Mr. W. J. Kerr was voted into the
chair, with Mr. F. C. Marks as his
secretary. In Introducing the business of the meeting the chairman
stated that they wished to make
Agnes street a business street.
"There are a lot of people in this
town who would be in business it
they could get sites." he said, but Columbia street was so congested that
this was Impossible. The extension
of the business section of Columbia
street, he maintained, was Impossible, lhe railway company had
bought up all the available apace od
the south side in the c, litre, and further east lt was impossible to build
stoies on that side except at prohibitive expense. To the west nothing could be done without a viaduct
over the B. C. E. R. and that was
out of the question. Three things
were necessary for a business street;
that it be paved, well lighted, and
wide. Once these Improvements had
been secured on Agnes street, there
was na reason why tills should not
be tho next business street of th.
town.
, Immediately on the chairman taking his'seat Mr. Billy Hancock1 registered the only emphatic "kick" of the
evening. "I am not In favor of any
of these things," he exclaimed swee>
lnsly, "Sixty-six feet is a leasonable
width for any street. Why not leave
something for the people to do In
th: ee or four years' time ? Do not do
it all now." Mr. Hancoc.i then went
pn to point out on the authoiity ot
Mr. Rockefeller that a great smash
wag coming in 1913, and they had better Ico.. out.    Later In the  evening

Teheran, Dec. 20.���Following the
refusal of the Persian parliament to
permit tbe dismissal of W. Morgan
Shuster, American treasurer general
of Persia, the Persian cabinet resigned today.
The members of the cabinet were
all opposed to retaining Shuster. The
formation of a new ultra-democratic
ministry, supporting Shuster, is now
predicted. Reports from Kasbin say
tbat the Russian troops are preparing
to advance on Teheran tomorrow.
Shuster has been warned tbat the
Cossacks will surround his bome
and prevent blm from attending to
his official duties, lt ls charged that
the cabinet which resigned today
had accepted bribes fiom Russia.

he protested against    what    he   considered was a scheme by Vancouver
teal  estate  men  to  come over and
boost  New   Westminster real  estate,
as tluy had done that oi Vancouver
until they could no longer sell it.
Alderman Johnston.
Alderman J. J. Johnston expressed
his pleasure at the sight of so many
ratepayers keen  enough to take up
such a cause as this.   "The time has
come  when  we must have  another
business street." he said. "Personally,
I thina lt is going to be Agnes street,
and 1 have, thought   so   for   some
years." lt would be (or the advantage
of all ratepayers on that street,   he
thought, to lend their heartiest support to the Improvement of aa much
of the street as possible, particularly
as big contracts were always cheaper
than small    ones.    The   return,   he
maintained,   would   be   Immediately
three and four-fold.    As for the details, It was possible that the widening might 'delay the paving, and it
was a question whether It was best
to wait .and do lt all at once or go
ahead with the paving as soon    as
possible.    Speaking for himself  and
several other property owners whom
he was there to represent, he wished
to do nothing but assist ln whatever
the latepayers thought was best, but
he sincerely hoped that their decision
would be along the Ones of progress.
Mr. Rickman, who favoied the Improvements,  pointed  out    some    of
the difficulties to be overcome with
special reference to the grading of
the street and tbe providing ot an additional seven teet, which It had been
suggested should be given  on  each
side, and to the moving of ihe buildings standing up to the present property.   These matters were taken up
by Mr. Malr, who said that Mr. Fales
for one looked   with   favor   on the
scheme, and waa ready to give   the
seven feet, it he was compensated tor
the cutting off or moving back of his
building.   Ot the Knights ot Pythias
hall he could not speak for certain,
nor of the Masonic temple.   St Patrick's  hall,  he  thought, could  very
easily be cut off or moved, while St.

Competition in Speed in Typewriting
at Modern Business College Last
Evening.
An event which ls tbe first ot its
kind and is therefore of a character
which may be described as unique in
the history of the city was tbe hold
lng of a competition in typewriting
by pupils of the institution known as
the Modern Business college,
'throughout the term the students
have been cultivating callouses on
their linger ends in their efforts to
catch up,with Rose I. Fritz, three
times champion of the world in typewriting. An incentive to this has
lie. n a beautifully engraved gold
medal awar.led for speed and accuracy by the United Typewriting
company, pf Toronto, the Canadian
representatives of the proprietors ot
the Underwood typewriter machine.
Last night tbe medal was won by
Mr. F. Harrison, who made the exceptionally high speed of (0 2-3 words,
net, a minute. The test waa the writing of unfamiliar matter on a machine without letters on the keys.
From the total number of words
written live words were deducted fo,
each mistake ot any kind, thus making accuracy a prime con lit ion of
sieed.
The presentation of the medal was
made by Mr. Sprott, Vancouver, and
lt was followed by a neat speech by
Mr. Bouck, principal'of the business
college. Mr. Bouck remarked that
though the college has been ln existence only two years, no fewer than
343 students have been sent out from
It, the success which they have
achieved both in New Westminster
and Vancouver showing the high
quality of the training received.
An entertaining program of music
and elocution was contributed by the
students ln course of the evening to
the delight of the large audience.
Mr. Sprott sprang, a pleasant surprise on his hearers, by announcing
that another medal would be awarded for a similar competition during
the coming summer.
Ottawa, Dec. 20.���Another censuu
bullotln has been Issued from tbc
office of the chief census commissioner. It gives the population of tho
Dominion by electoral divisions an.l
by sexes. The first bulletin issued
gave Canada a total population of
7,180,000. These figures have now
been Inei eased to 7,11)2,338, which la
an increase of 1,821,823 for the Dominion Bince 1001.
Columns of the bulletin giving
population by sexes are not quito
complete, ten subdivisions being still
missing in British Columbia and a
cou;le in Saskatchewan. With these
left out the bulletin shows that there
were ln the Dominion on June 1 last
3,806,350 males anl 3,376,937 fema:es.
The increase in the male population
since l'JOl has been 1,054,U43, while
females have Increased by 757,330.

which show that the arrivals of males
from Great Britain, United States antl
other countries largely exceeds the
influx of females.
It Is In the Far West that males
most largely predominate. For Instance the surplus ot males over females tn British Columbia ls 106,88.5
while lu Saskatchewan it ls 90,336,
in Alberta 73,400.
The unit of representation as
fixed by present population of Quebec will be 30,852. It is practically
the same as estimated when the fir-it
census bulletin was Issued and will
not affect the estimate then made hs
to the changes which wlll take place
ln representation of the various provinces when the ledlstributian bill is
passed.
Many of the constituencies, the majority of them in the west or ln
eaBtern Industrial centres, show *
population far above the unit of representation, while others are far below the figures. The most populdrffc
constituencies are: Maisoneuve, 170,:
978;-Winnipeg, 127 988; Vancouver,
123,902; Toronto West, 105.868. Some
of the constituencies which fall far
below the electoral unit Include Yukon, 10,051; Chateauquay. 13,322.:
West Northumberland, 12.965; Antigonish, 11,962, and North Lanark,
14,629.

That November had been ''the
busiest month at the Royal Colum- j

office was- the opinion of Lady Superintendent Miss Scott expressed at the
regular monthly meeting ot the Koyal
Columbian hospital board yeeterday
.afternoon. There were about 80
patients in the wanU, and the hospital was very full. Miss Scott then
suggested that better flre protection
should be secured by the purchase of
(lie buckets, axes and equipment, and
the board decided to make these purchases.
Discussion then turned to the advisability of tbe city taking over the
hos: Ital, and it was generally agreed
that this was the only proper plan.
No definite action, however, waa
taken.

TWO OUEERJNIMALS
The Marabou and the Hyena of
Central Africa.
WHAT CONSOLS   MEAN.
BOTH VULTURES IN NATURE.
Esch Gorges Itself on Carrion, and ths
Bird and Beait Often Battle For
Thoir Food���Falryliko Plumes That
Aro as Light as Air.
The ugliest storks ln tbe world are
found ln southern Asia and central
Africa. Their flesh' colored beads are
only partially covered with stilt, wiry j
fentbers, and hanging on the breast
1 (bey bear a disgusting pouch, which
answers tbe purpose of a crop. One of
the largest of these storks is tbe marabou. It stalks about the great sandy
(ila ins of central Africa wltb composure and a lordly grandeur, as if it
were tbe most beautiful bird in tb*
world its body feathers are of a dull
metallic green color, and Its wings and
tall, are dingy black. Looking ot tho
'awkward creature, no one would sus-
pert that under its ungainly wings lt
curried tbe most exquisite and fuiry-
ilke little plumes, so airy that It takes.
Imsketfulg of them to weigh an ounce.
Tliey are pure wblte and so much desired for trimming tbat the bird is vigorously bunted by the natives, who
sell these dainty fenthers to traders
for a very large price.
The marabou feeds on carrion, like
the vulture. Hs throat ts very large,
uud It wlll greedily ent everything that
comes in Its way. In the swamps and
plains around Khartum, on tbe Nile,
lire immense flocks of marabous, and
they are so daring as to come to tbe
elitnghter houses on the outskirts of
the city In search of food, and whole
ox ears and shin bones with hoof attached have' been found In the crops
of Rfiectmens which hove beeu killed.
These birds are skillful Ushers. Tbey
haunt tbe low marshy Islands in the
rivers and lakes of central Africa, with
elephants, monkeys, flamingoes nnd
many varieties of birds for companions, and gain their principal food from
the water. They often go ia companies of ten or twelve to flsh. Wading
in the water, tbe birds form a circle,
which tbey gradually draw together,
pitherlng the frightened lish In the
center of the net. when with their long
bills nnd quick movements they spped-
il.v provide themselves with a hearty
men I.
Although marabou mammas have
been seen proudly parading around
with a brood of diminutive downy
young ones, so shy aud retiring Is this
bird In Its domentle habits that naturalists hove been unable to determine
when and how It builds Its nest. Tho
natives assert that it nests In high
trees, but their statement is not confirmed.
In captivity tbe marabou is lord of
the Inclosure, and In zoological gardens,
v here specimens have been confined,
im other birds or even smnll beasts
dare approach the feeding trough until th- Integer of this impudent bird Is
Intiftted nnd It has retired to the warmest corner for a nop. The Immense
Strength of Its bill makes it a formidable enemy, nnd wben fighting for food
lt will often overcome lhe largest vultures and wage successful battles with
beasts of prey.
'lbe hyena inhabits ttoe same portions of Asia and Africa as the mora-
liou. and travelers glr* accounts of
terrible contests between these two
singular members of the animal kingdom. The hyena is called the vulture
among beasts, as it prefers carrion for
its food, nnd as long aa it can flnd
dead animals to devour it leaves the
flocks and herds in peace. Cowardly
by nature, lt rarely attacks mnn or
lienst unless driven to desperation .by
booster.
Tbe striped hyena inhabits the northern latitudes of Africa. Persia nnd
Syria, while the spotted species, which
is easily tamed and is sometimes called hyena, dog, io found in large numbers In the vast plains of South Africa.
The hyena Is a strange looking lienst
It has n big bend and n heavy, shaggy
inane. The bind part of Its body is
much lower tban Its shoulders, nnd Its
bind legs are short. Tbls odd formation gives It an awkward, shambling
manner of walking, which is both ludicrous nnd hideous.
This creiture rarely shows Itself by
day. but' when the shadows of night
fall on the plains and forests It comes
out from Its bome among the rocks
and enverns tn search of food. African travelers.nre much annoyed by It
When the camp Is silent aad all are-
sleeping the hyena cornea prowling
round, uttering hoarse human cries,
and should lt fall to And sufficient
camp refuse to satisfy Its hunger some
poor donkey Is sure to be torn In
pieces by Its terribly strong Jaws.
Few animals have been the subject
of so much superstition. In ancient
times It was believed that a dog went
mnd if a byenn turned Its evil eye up-,
on It. nnd the beast wns believed by
many to be a wicked sorcerer, who
weut about In human form by day
nnd nt night assumed the'shape of a
byenn. Tbe poor ond Ignorant peasantry of Arabia even at the present
dny believe In the evil eye of this
.bpnrt nnd are afraid to shoot It lest
they should Incur the wrath of tha
wicked spirit which tbey Imagine
walks the earth In this ugly form.
The poor hyena, however, far from
belug an evil spirit, is a real blessing
to tbe regions It Inhabits, ns It Is a
natural scavenger, provided by the
kinil wisdom of nature to clear the
ground of much loathsome and decoying matter, thereby rendering the air
aweeter and purer and mora healthful.
How Anybody May Bey an   Interact
In ths British  Nation.
Most of us have heard of consols,
which are always being talked about
in the newspapers, and there is now
a proitwal tbat consols should be
made more jopular.
The postolllce has Just sent out
a little pater, which anybody can
have for the asking, explaining how
people can buy consols, which means
that the'y can buy a share of the public wealth of the nation. People who
aie interested in money matters aro
always talking or consols, saying
what a pity It Is that tbey are so
"low," and how desirable lt ls that
they should be  "higher."
The World's Biggest Business.
What are these mysterious Consols? They are nothing to eat or to
wear. They are government securities, and their real name is "Consolidated Annuities." From time to time
great business Arms, when they wish
to exten .1 their trade, borrow money.
They do so by taking other people
into a sort of partnership. That Is to
say, they offer other people so many
shares In the business. People buy
these shares, and each year, If business prospers, they receive their portion ot the profits in the form of
dividend.
Now,   the  British   government   Is
only   a great  business,  the   biggest
business in the world.   From time to
time lt requires more money than can
be raised from the taxation imposed
for a year.   So,   in case of war,   or
other cause, It borrows  money  like i
ordinary business Arms, and pays In-'
terest on its loan.   The country owes
today over 700 million pounds.   That I
sum is called the National Debt.    It'
bas been built up by the borrowings
of centuries.
The Beginning of Consols.
At one time all sorts of accounts
were owing���money borrowed for all
sorts of periods anl at vai ious rates
of interest, an.l this . caused confusion.
Of course, the people who had helped to lend the money were not share
holders in the ordinary sense; they;
were stockholders. If the government wished to raise a loan of twenty
million ��� omuls, thousands of people
would subscribe. Some would lend
thousands of pounds, ethers would
lend a hun.Ired. 'lo each one there
would be Issued bonds, or stocKs,
equalling the amount of money lent.
ln the eighteenth century all these
different loans were formed into a
round sum. all with the same conditions and bearing the same rate of
interest, and this combination was
called Consolidated Annuities, calle.1
Consols for short.
Up to 1888 the government paid 3
per cent Interest���that is to say, to
every person holding a government
security worth ��100, they pail ��3
interest per year. After 1888 the rate
of Interest was cut down to ��2 15s.,
and ln 1903 the Inteiest dropped to
its present rate�����2 Ids. j.er year
for every   �� 100 advanced.
Why Consols "������all."
Tlie effect cf this arrangement was
good at. first. People were bo glad to
have Consols that they would pay as
much as �� 112 for ��100 worth of
stock, because the security was the
soundest in the worfd, tlie interest
was sure, and the stock was popular
because trustees, investing dead
men's money for the benefit of heirs,
were compelled by law to buy ConsoL
on account of the security, so us to
save the property from risk as long
as it was ln their care.
But, as the interest paid on consols dropped, ��100 invested In consols earned less money for its owner,
and consols began to get unpopular.
Tbe fnarket was flooded with
schemes offering a much higher rate
of interest. There are great firms
In England which, because they make
large profits, pay high dividends, but
there are still many more which do
not. The rule Is that It is not generally safe to Invest money in concerns which pay enormous rates of
interest. If the schemes were sound,
their promoters would not have to
pay high interest; tbey could borrow
their ineney-at a low rate ot interest.
A case in :olnt. was the Charing
Cross Bank, the recent bankruptcy ot
which has brought many people to
ruin. Here 10 per cent interest was
offered. No bank can pay such interest. .The more the bank succeeded
In getting customers, tbe mere certain waa R to fail, because lt was incurring debts which it could not possibly pay. The crash has come at
last, and the customers are threatened with a loss of over a million
pounds.
��100  for   ��79.
Higher interest offered ln other directions���many quite sound���naturally made owners of consols dissatisfied with their 2Vfr per oent, with the
result that people, instead of paying
��112 for ��100 worth of stock, were
glad to sell out at a loss. The price
per ��100 haa been dropping since
1897, until recently instead of ��112
for ��100 worth of stock, only a little over ��79 waa paid. The .government still reckon* tho ��79 to ��100,
any pays 2% per cent. If the National Debt were to be paid off tomorrow, every bolder of ��100 worth of
stock for which he bad paid ��79
would receive ��100 ln full.
But, now that consols are so cheap,
the rate of interest appears to rise.
Instead of having to invest ��100 to
get ��2 10s. Interest, we have to pay
only about ��80.   This is as good as
��3 2s. fid. per cent Interest, because
we are getting for ��80 as much Interest aa we ought tc get for ��100.
People are realizing tbls, and those
wbo wish to buy hope that'the price
will remain low, while those who wish
to sell bone that the price will rise. |
The nation itself does not like to see
consols low. They ougbt to be higher,,
aa tbey are a national security, and
so attempts are now to be made to
popularize them.
Consols for Small Savers.
The post, office  has Just issued  a
notice encouraging investors depositing money In the post office to put
their small sum Into consols.   There
���TO other schemes, also, but tbe aim '
of all suggestions ls to create a greater Bale for consols, so that the price
would go up, and consols would, perhaps, appear once more at par���th*t
Is, a man selling ��100 worth of stock
would  receive   ��100  for  It, not  the
present   ��80,  which  is   ��20  "below I
par."

Keeve Sullivan on reviewing the
past year gave a satisfactory report
on the finances. The councll had
spent so far $23,671.71, and tbey had
a balance of about $3000 on band. In
ward one $5802 had been expended,
In ward two $3934, ln ward three
$4254, in ward four $4720, and ln
ward five $4168, while, $791 had been
paid out of the general ward account.
For this money, he thought, they had
got full value ln better roads and
improvements. As for the future tbe
business of the passing year had
made lt clear that they, would have
to build a town hall with offices ln
which hours were kept by regular
officials. The main difficulty in connection with this was the location of
the hall. Both Cloverdale and Surrey Centre had their supporters, and
they meant to submit the matter to
the people at the time of the elections.
Besides this they had to consider
the advisability of giving the council power to borrow money to enable
them to develop the roads of tho
municipality, and open up the district
generally. At the present rate of
progress, the reeve said, it would
take many years to put things in
such a shape that settlers could get
hi and out to their properties ln a
satisfactory way. However, It was
up to the people themselves to decide
this question, and., the old council

moved on from Vancouver to New

Surrey. The grievance was aggravated by the resignation of Constable
Wise, which was received at the
same time. Mr. Bose, police magistrate, informed the councillors that
steps were being taken to secure a
permanent officer for this point, and
he hoped that the council would endorse this agitation. Accordingly a
motion was made and passed, that the

Prosecuting Attorney  Lays 'Case Be-
4
fore Competed Jury, Tracing
History of Company.
Chicago, Dec. 20.���When the trial
of the meat barons was resented ln
Judge Carpenter's court, today, District Attorney James H. Wllkerson
continued his opening address to the
Jury. It dealt with the National
Packing company, relating- its history from the time of Its organization
to tbe date on whicb the indictments
were returned for criminal violation
of the Sherman v anti-trust law.
He' told the Jury that the concern
was designed and devised, net as an
Independent business enterprise, got
as a lawful corporation for the purpose
of conducting business, but as an Instrumentality through which tbe government claims.an old pool was to
be continued. He promised that the
present facts on whicb the government relies to show the operations
of the old pool through the workings
of the National Packing company.
The acts of the past were presented
to enlighten the Jurors on the counts
set forth In the indictment.
After tbls, a short time was to be
given defendants' counsel to present
objections, to portions of the speech
of the prosecutor if they so desired.
Further time would be taken by the
court, it was thought, to pass on the
objections. Then counsel for tbe government planned to call their flrst
witness, which was regarded as a signal for a battle of the wits and cunning of the lawyers.

Took   Small    Library  on   Her    Indian
Trip.
Queen Mary took quite a small 11-
biary of books with her on her voyage to India for the great Durbar
there. She showed a keen interest in
the furnishing of the fine new liner
Medina, but an especial interest in
the selection of books, not only for
herself but for the king, whose reading, perhaps, fs not so spacious and
varied aB her own. He ls fond of
outdoor books, as one would expect a
good sportsman .to be, and as his
father was before him. He does not,
however, care for, racing stories any
more than he really does for racing,
and there, of course, he differs from 1
King Edward. The latter would, dur-j
ing a railway journey, read a racing
tale by Mr. Nat Gould, Whose name
and fame may have penetrated to
this side of the Atlantic. King
George is interested ln what may be
called the literature of the British empire and particularly In thellves of
the men who had built up the empire,
from Walter Raleigh to Sir George
Grey and Cecil Rhodes. He is an
empire king In his reading as well as
In his politics for it is satd that he
has no desire, like King Edward, to
be the grand ambassador of the British people to foreign nations.
Queen Serious Reader.
Queen Mary is, In tbe best sense of
the word, a serious reader; that Is
to say, she likes books dealing with
the questions of the time, not'political
so much as social and domestic. She
believes, with the poet, that the well
being of a nation begins, and probably also ends, in the happiness of the
individual fireside, and tbat Is a
sound maxim, no doubt, tn reference
to rich people as well as to poor people. Her mother.the Duchess of Teck
was keenly interested tn social questions, and this liking for them and
the working out of them has descended to Queen Mary In that way. She Is
by natuie, however, the admirable
nousewlfe and administrator, and this
had led her to consider and read
about the domestic and social questions which are so urgent tn our day
of rapid living.
While the books dealing with such
topics have their place ln her library
theie are also choice little departments for other kinds of standard
lite.uture, not forgetting the great
poets with whom Queen Mary has
much more than a nod ling acquaintance. She likes poetry, and she has
communicated this liking to several
of her children by accustoming them
to have poetry read aloud. Young
1'rincess Mary Is said to be an uncommon keen reader of the books
which have appealed to girls ever
since the world be:, an, books like
"Little Lo;d Fauntleroy" aud Mlss
AlCOtt'S "Littlp Women." The boy
princes are understood to be fond of
sea uloriet. Retting this liking "<���"���-
' -t-i- fron the fact that Lue ei.est of
llifltn, thc Hrlnce of ""ales, Is ln the

HOTEL CASHIER'S ODD PATRON8
American Tourists, Persian Satraps,
Abyssinian Chieftains, et al.
London, Dec. 18.���"Americans who
flnd the government matches insufferable and light their cigars with
banknotes," were said to have been
among the customers of one of the
smartest Parisian hotels by an advocate ln defending the hotel cashier,
whose accounts showed a shortage ot
nearly $60,000. They had as fellow-
lodgers "Persian satraps, who spent
$1200 a day ln the hotel and drank
haut Brion at $30 a bottle; Abyssinian chieftains, unused to chairs, who
cooked their cutlets in the middle of
their drawing-rooms and ate' them
squatted round as if on the desert;
English people with 80 trunks; foreigners from Africa with young lions
in a leash." This extraordinary
clientele, of which other examples
were given, was brought forward as
an excuse for the cashier who was so
carried away by auch extravagances
that when one of the daintiest ot tbe
hotel's fair guests asked him. to ad-,
vance her some, money, be compiled,
at the hotel's corft. to the.extent ot
his deficit. When asked to name thia
guest the cashier declared she.waa a
bona-flde princess���"Born on the
steps of a throne," hla advocate added later���and his honor would not allow him to mention her name: The
jury seemed influenced either by the
temptations to which the cashier was
exposed or by the mystery of the
royal personage, for they granted the
prisoner "extenuating circumstances," with the result that he was
condemmned to two years in prison
only.
