Bylaws for Big Sums Pass
Mayor Cannot Nam*    Definite    Date
When Details Will Be Ready for
Four money by-laws were rushed
through tbe council in speedy fashion
ytoitiday afternoon, and it was de
ciued to ask the ratepuyers (or
powers to borrow altogether $442,000
at the time of the election. One hun-
dred and sixtytive of this total ls to
be raised to pay off the city's overdraft at tbe bank, while the rest is
for school purposes: (or tbe purchase
or a high school site, $77,000; for ths
erection of a high school, $103,000;
for various purposes, $y.,()0u. This
last sum Is made up as follows: for
the purchase of a site for and erection of a public scliool in the west
end, $06,000; (or the balance owing
on the Sixth avenue site, $12,220; foi
the balance owing on the Queens
boiough school, $2380, anl for the
completion of the Sapperton school,
All these by-laws were drawn up,
read and passed on the petition ol
ratepayers of the city. They will be
submitted to the vote of the people a:
the time of the civic elections.
The cemetery by-law was also
read, but for the flrst time only. Tho
cemetery is to be purchased at m
cost of $12,500, and consists of five
acres ln the neighborhood of the
existing cemetery. Further progiess
was cot' made with tbe residents ot
the soutli side of Carroll street, who
aro afraid that the cemetery will
abut right on their homes. There Is
sowic doubt apparently about the existence or opening up of Brown street,
whicn, lt is said, should He betweeu
these homes and tbe proposed city
cemetery, and the council wished to
have time to consider the matter.
liefore the council adjourned Alderman Hryson rose to ask the mayor
when he thought be would be able to
make-public the harbor Improvement
scheme, he himself wasanlxous to
be released from the obligation to
ecu eir about the little ���wftJclr he, In
common with ' tbe other aldermen,
know. Ma>or Lee replied that the
scheme was not yet perfected in
detail, and he thought that it would
be unwise to make lt known pre
niataiely. After some discussion the
ma;, or stated that the councll would
certainly be told of it before it was
gi.cn to the public, and a motion was
purist-J asking that the scheme be
hun led to completion as soon bb possible, and when ready be submitted
at once to a special meeting of the
council. The mayor hoped that lt
wou.d be ready in much less time
than a month, but he could not five
any definite date.
'lhe action of the C. P. R. In putting in a cross-over on Front street
wituout first asking the consent of
the council, was strongly criticised
by the chairman of the board of
works, and other members of ths
council. A motion tbat tbe railway
company be asked to remove the
same at once was lost after the
major had pointed out that thnt object ot the cross-over was to, handle
perishable freight quickly. An
amendment that a representative of
tho O. P. It. be asked to attend the
next meeting of the council to explain
and endeavor to arrive at an arrangement legardlng the matter was carried..
Tho Brackman-Ker Milling company asked for a crossing over Front
street (rom their whaif, in a letter
that stigmatized the condition ot the
street as "scandaleus with mud and
water." The matter was referred to
the boar I of works to act.
More trouble was brought up by a
letter from the city engineer stating
that he had closed Lorne street be
cause the building occupied by
Messrs. Grant and Corbould was considered unsafe by himself and tbe
btilidlng Inspector. The affair aroused
a little discussion and Alderman
Johnston was anxious to know lf tha
weakening of the building had been
caused by the cutting down of the
street Alderman Campbell assured
him that this was not th* cas*, and
tbe matter was turned over to the
building committee.
The board of works report recommended the renewal of the sldewalit
on Columbia street between McNeelv
and Mclnnes streets, the construction
of a four foot walk on First street
from Eighth avenue north, and of a
sidewalk on Seventh avenue from
Sixth Btreet east to the present walk.
All these . recommendations were
adopted. It was also agreed In answer to a question from the board ot
works, that the work or cleaning the
Lulu island ditches be charged to the
1911 by-law. The council decided
tben to adopt the suggestion of the
bosrd ot works, that the city pay half
the cost of a 24-inch culvert through
the ravine lot, the People's Trast
company having ��� Signified their will
ingness to pay the other half.
Box of Silkworms Christmas Results
of Experiments In Industry
at Trail.
Victoria, Dec. 28.���One of the most
curious and highly original Christmas
boxes received this year by any
British Columbia, it Is safe to say,
was that which arrived at the legislative building yeslerday, literally
plastered over with label warnings ot
the necessity of extra careful handling, and addressed to the prime minister, Hon. Richard McBride. The
package, upon being cautiously opened, was found to contain two ornamental frames���the one of samples
Illustrative of spun British Columbia
silk as taken from the cocoon and
the other a living colony of Italian
silkworms busily engaged In the production of the raw material for my
lady's gown.
The unique Christmas gift came
from Trail, ln the Kootenay, where
Vannucchl dl Qiustl ft Co. are tbe
pioneers in the establishment of tbe
silkworm Industry, already giving
promise of the attainment of profitable proportions ln this province.
St. George':    Dramatic    Society Will
Play in Opera  House���Cast le
Well Above Average.
"Dandy Dick" is billed (or January
3 at tne opera house, and will be
presented by tbe St. George's Amateur Dramatic society. Judging from
a private view of a full rehearsal tbe
play should prove a great success,
and the company is not a wiilt too
ambitious to wish to perform tills
popular comedy on the stage of New
Westminster's first theatre. Tbe
whole cast Is a sound one, while several of the members rise we.l above
this plane.' tor example Mr. B. H.
Hirl in the part of the reluctantly
"���porting dean," woi ilea by,, money
troubles and anxious for hls good
name, plays like a true actor without
exaggeration yet never forgets that
he ls not Mr. Hill, but the dean in
"Dandy Dick." Again whoever selected Mrs. J. D. Taylor for the part of
Georgiana Tidman, alias "George
T id, Sporting widow, and real good
sort, mad on ber hoi ses, and Jolly and
kin,I to everybody, must be congratulated on .his judgment. Mrs. Taylor
seems to enjoy her part, and to revel
In the dashing spirit of the tuif, and
the movement Is never slow when she
is on the stage.
A subordinate but difficult part is
that of Blore, tbe butler, outwardly
the most respectable of respectable
butlers, but secretly addicted to
" 'aving a bit on the races." The
perfectly trained man servant is
never easy to portray. The reserve
and self-command of those persons
are apt to become mere stiffness en
the stage, but Mr. Wells plays
humanly throughout and seizes his
opportunities when the restraint Is
broken down and the Inner man re
vealed. The heavy parts of the two
girls Salome and Sheba are In the
capable hands, of Miss Fetter and
Miss Homer. The latter makes a de
lightful "toy-child" for tbe old dean,
and her assumption of tbe most artless Innocence is very amusing, while
Mlss Fetter plays the elder sister
with the slight touch of added dignity
that serves only to enhance the
equal naivete of her part. As blase
military lovers Messrs. Stanley
Thompson and Charles K. Cleeg are
excellent, and Major Tarvey descends
to tremendous depths of depression
during those annoying attacks ol
liver that make him such a pathetic
spectacle at times. Mr. White plays
Sir Tristram, the sporting squire, in
great style, and without particularizing every other, member of the company Tt is sufficient to say that all
are above tho average of amateur
artists, and an enjoyable evening Is
ensured to all who will go to the
spera bouse on January 3.

like a war of extermination.
The war office here is greatly excited, and it is believed preparations

The appointment of a Russian governor and chief of police for the city
of Tabriz, in Persia, and the assumption by the Russians of the financial

Punishment will be meted out to
the Persians. This ls not, the most
difficult problem to be solved. A task
which Is more complicated and
equally Important Is the introduction
into Persia by Russian authority of
a severe and firm, but Just administration. The Persians must remember

of the Khutukhta of Mongolia, prac
tlcally making the country a Russian
protectorate, occurred today anl
many representatives of foreign nations attended ln an unofficial capacity. The Khutukhta is an ecc.eslastic
subordinate to the Dalai Lama, the
head of Lamalsm, a corrupt form o(
Buddhism, and his relations to .the
Dalai Lama are about the aame as
those of a cardinal to the pope.
ln the year 1688 the Khutukhta who
then occupied the office, counselled
the Mongolian princes . to elect -a
Manchu emperor to the throne, but
the emperor always bore a special
name in Mongplia as a mark of Mongolian autonomy. It is only during
the last ten or fifteen years that
China has attempted .to introduce in
Mongolia closer administrative dependence on China. The Rech, in a
significant leading article this morn-
[ing recounts recent Mongolian events
and states that the election of the
Khutukhta in Mongolia means an end
of the Independence of Mongolia. In
the future the status parts of le-
nascent China may assume the character of autonomy or become a
federation of Independent states.
The solemn proclamation of Mongolian Independence coincides with
the failure of Premier Yuan Sal
Kai's efforts on behalf of the Manchu
dynasty. China faces, according to
the Recb, a more or less protractel
struggle for a new political order.
Tbls wlll alow the new born Mongolian state time in which to wax
strong and create defensive forces
against China's further centralists
'attempts.   Tbe Rech concludes:
"We have already pointed out In
what degrees such a course of event*
answers to the interests of Russia.
We repeat now that not annexation,
nor grab, but protection of the Independence and autonomy of Mongolia
should be tbe aim ot Russian diplomacy."

Should First Cousins Marry?
The seriousness of the risk run by
first cousins wbo marry ls emphasized by Mlss Ethel Elderton. a coworker with Professor Karl Pearson
at the Galton Laboratory for National
Eugenics, London University. Marriages between near kin, such as
uncle and niece, aunt and nephew, or
grandparent and grandchild, are forbidden mainly on the principle of resemblance. Mlss Elderton, therefore
determined to see whether cousins
are as much alike as any of thes?
pairs of relatives. Sbe stu lied the
cases of no fewer than fiOOO palre of
cousins, with a view to endeavoring
to measure the degree of resemblance
in health, intelligence, success, temper, and temperament.
The conclusion she came to -was
this: That the general resemblance
between cousins is about balf that
between brother and sister, and i ra -
tloally the same as thnt shown by
statistics of uncles and nieces and of
aunts and nephews.
"K the undeslrablllty of marriage
I within certain degrees is founded on
the closeness of resemblance," says
Mlss Elderton, "the law which for-
bldB marriage of uncle an.l aunt with
niece and nephew should also restrict the marriage of first cousins."
'The offspring of cousin marriages
appear to be particularly liable to
be deaf mutes. "There seems little
doubt," continues Mlss Elderton,
"that lf there is any deaf-mutism in a
stock a cousin marriage, even when
1862, shows him in frock-coat wltn
a broad velvet collar, a waistcoat
made ot some furry stuff, and trailers of a huge check. Percy Fitzgerald says the French painter's remark, that Dickens was "more Ilka
one of the old Dutch admirals wo
see in the picture galleries than a
man of letters," conveys an admirably true Idea to his friends.
John Bright wore a black velvet
waistcoat long after other people had
ceased to wear them. "The first
time I saw Archbishop Whately," said
the Provost of Oriel College, Oxford,
"he wore a pea-green coat, white
waistcoat, stone-colored shorts, flesh-
colored stockings. Bishop Heber was
dressed ln a parsley and butter coat.
Dr. Arnold ln a light blue coat with
metal buttons and a buff waistcoat."
Charles  Lamb   always  dressed   ln
black.    "I take lt," he says, "to be
the  proper  costume  of an  author."
When this was once objected to at
a   wedding  he  pleaded   the   raven's
apology ln the fable that "he hud no
other."      His  clothes  were entirely
black, and he wore long black gaiters
up to his knees.

���tael Mesh Splssh Guards Far Auto-
mobile Wheels.
The municipal authorities of London
hove taken under consideration the
complaints of pedestrians that mud
baths are forced upon them every wet
day by motor omnibuses and other
street vehicles. Consequently, several
terns have been made of a steel mesh
iplasb guard designed to keep the mud
from flying outward when a wheel
drops into a puddle.
The splash guards are suspended from
tbe hubs of tbe wheels, the bottoms
reaching to within a fraction of an
lii' h of the ground and forming a
shield between tbe wheels and pedestrians. In one of the tests a white
screen was erected on a suburban road
near u mud puddle. Only a few Uuy
drops of mnd were splashed npon It
by n motor omnibus equipped wltb tbe
Shields, while a broad checked pattern of black and white resulted when
tbe splash guards were removed.

He Spoke With the Duke.
An Incident which shows the democratic character of the Duke of Connaught occurred while he was en
route to Toronto from Ottawa. During a stop of the train at Havclock
his Royal Highness stepped off. A
man approached him. and after a
few minutes' conversation asked if
he thought the Duke would come out
and shake hands with one of the oldest residents. A hearty hand went
out to the man who was coveting the
honor, and he then knew that he h id.
all the while, been talking to the new
the world shoulde be valued. This
taxyage was first executed when
Syrenus waa leftenaunt ln Slrla. And
every man wente ln to his awne shire
toune there to be taxed.
"And Joseph also ascended from
Gallle out of a cite called Nazareth,
into Jewi y. Into a cite of David which
ls called Bethlehem, because he wa3
of the housse and linage of David, to
be taxed with Mary his wedded wyfe,
which was with cbilde."
About 1540 Miles Coverdale gave to
the Kngiish the first complete translation of the Bible following Tyti-
dale's wording very closely. Som'J
very peculiar passages are ln this
Bible, still further showing the
changes in language.
"The dove bare an olive leafe ln
her nebbe."���Gens. 8-11.
"So yt thou Shalt not nede to be
afrayed for eny bugges by night."���
P��a, 91:5.
"Is there no treacle ln Gllead?"���
Jer. 8:22.
"Ther wldiowes were not looked
vpon in the dallie handreachlng."���
Acta 11:8.
"Paul, the rascal of God and the
villlan of Jesus Christ."���iTltus 1:1.
In those days "villlan" meant a
very humble servant, while "rascal"
ment a most needy person.
The change in meaning of words
is further shown by Wycllffe's trans
lation of Gens. 35-22, "Now the brats
of Jacob were' twelve." And ln 2
Kings 11-12 he makes Elisha cry:
"My dad, my dad, the cart of Israel
and the horses of it."
King   James'   Version.
In 1603 King James VI., who was
then thirty-seven years old, and had
been king of Scotland for some
time, became also king of England
as James I., thus uniting the uo
countries in a union that has not yei
been broken.
Intel ested in both religion and
learning, he favored the project for
a thorough revision of the English
Bible, and soon after his coronation
a learned committee of forty-seven
of the most scholarly men In the empire set about the task. The year
1611 was a noted year for many reasons. In that year Shakespeare wrote !
two of his most noted dramas, Bacon !
outlined1 his greatest book, "Advance- I
ment of Learning," and the second
colony of Puritans crossed to Holland preparatory to their longer
flight across the seas to the land of
the free. But no event compared ln
Importance to this, that ln that year
the committee gave to the world
what w0 now know as the "Authorized" Version of the Bible. Tho Bible
has done more to spread and unify
the English language than almost
any other book.

It was not until the time
of Wycllffe, in 1384, that the English people had the Bible In any gieat
numbers. This devout man loile!
early ond late to give the people the
word of God, and while the Wilting
was all done by hand, yet r.o many
copies were made and so carefully
were they prized that one hundred
and seventy copies of his Bible are
still  in existence, after  500 years.
The continual change In the lan
guage is shown In the following quotation of Math. 3:1-3.

.About twenty years after the death
of Wycllffe a German lad ln Mentz
was amusing himself by cutting his
name in some bark and then arranging the letters in order until he had
Johan Gensfleisch, or John Goose-
According to the legend one of the
letters fell Into a pot of purple dye
and he snatched lt out and let It rest
on a skin to dry. When he picked it
up again he saw the letter "H" on the
skin where the letter had rested.
Thirty years afterwards this same
lad, then a man, waa running a printing press in Mentz, and in 1450 the
flrst book printed was a Latin Bible.
In 1525 William Tyndale sent 6000
printed copies of the New Testament
into England, smuggling them in in
bales of cloth and sacks of flour, determined that "the boy who drives
the plough in England shall know
more of the Scriptures than the pope
does." On Friday, Oct. 6, 1536, Tyndale waa strangled at the stake and
his body burned, but tbe Bible was
in the hands of the common people In
England, and ln the language they
could understand, -through bis efforts.
Still further changes are noted In
the language, as the following quotation from Luke 2:1-5 shows:

Through  the genius of Sir  Walter
Scott the  name of "Old  Mortality"
is known far beyond the bounds of
f Scotland,    and    everyone    who    ha*
heard of the persecuted Covenantee
4s familiar with his mal name. There
are few churchyards in Galloway,
especially in the County of Wigtown,
where his handiwork may not still,
lbe seen.

so many years of his existence to.
perform this tribute to the memory
of these suffering people. Wherever

roadside in a dying state. Kind
hands removed the era pilgrim to a

his rest in a few days.
He was born in 1713 and died in
1B01. The memorial of "Old Mortality" is in keeping with the llmplrt
tastes of him it was designed to commemorate. It stands near Carpel
Glen, one mile away from the village
known as St. John's Town of Vairy.
This spot was chown. as lt was one
< f the chief hiding places of the
persecuted "Nill Fcilly" of Galloway.'
The statue represents him in hU
favorite attitude when at rest, but
his chisel is useless in his hand unit
his mallet is broken. H's old pony:
the pole companion of his wanderings,
elands besides him, "a mute witness

Mlnlsturo  Circus  at   Royal
Draws Full  Houses.
Graham's miniature circus Is drawing full houses to the Royal. The
wonderful stunts of these marvellously trained little animals are well
worth going to see, and lt is almost
past comprehension how such Intelligence has been Instilled Into the
beasts. There would be no good in
giving away the different tricks performed, but one ln particular arouses
the audience's enthusiasm. That is
when an old wise rat mounts a tight
wire stretched over the heads of tho
people right to the operator's box,
and then toboggans down on to the
stage again back to his master and
bis comrades.
The other acts are also good, and
the Hebrew comedy now playing is a
welcome feature as these short
sketches are deservedly popular, especially when acted so capably as U
this one. The musical hobo that can
play on anything from a chisel to a
dozen or beer bottles ls also no second rate fun artist, and hls tricks
are as original as tbey are good. He
does not let his audience stop laughing long, while he is on the stage.

Greeley's Fist.
There seems to be no end to Horace Greeley stories. A London paper
tells or rather, retells, a good one.
The editor's handwriting was next to
indecipherable, and he became vexed
at continual typographical errors in
his articles. He sent a note to the
foreman of the composing room, directing that the compositor be discharged. The foreman obeyed orders.
Before leaving the establishment the
compositor got possession of the note
which Mr. Greeley had written. He
took it to the foreman of another
newspaper office, and was engaged
at once. The foreman had puzzled
over the note for some time, and
finally made it out to be: "A good
and efficient workman, and long employed on the Tribune."
Originally a tumbler was far from
what it is today, and its true meaning has been lost ln the many graceful forms in which it is to be seen.
What a "tumbler" really ls may be
Inferred from an extract from a gentleman's diary written ln 1803, which
also throws light upon the social customs of the times. The entry Is as
follows: "Had a few friends to dinner. Tried my new tumbling glasses.
Very successful; all got drunk early.'
These tumbling glasses, soon called
"tumblers" for short, were made with
a round or pointed bottom, so that
they could not be set down when they
contained liquids without falling over
and spilling their contents. They were
made as a sort of joke to conduce to
rapid drinking.
Some   Aged   Fish.
It is not generally known that there
Is hardly any limit to the age of a
flsh. Professor Baird, of the United
Statea Fish Commission, ls the authority for the statement that there ls
authentic evidence. to show that
carp have attained an ase of two
hundred years. Professor Baird also
says that there is a tradition that
within fifty years a pike was living
in Kussia whose age dated back to
the fifteenth century. "There Is nothing," he says, "to prevent a flsh from
living almost Indefinitely, and lt has
no perio dof maturity.

A strange discovery lately made In
the walls of the old palace of the
Louvre shows that reinforced concrete was by no means unknown ln
Paris as far back as the 16th century,
when the rebuilding of the Louvre
was undertaken by that industrious
builder, Francis 1. The builder
states that, when executing the works
in connection with the application of
a modern lift, the workmen employe t
found lt necessary to cut through
some of the old walls, which were,
apparently, of dressed masonry. But,
to the surprise of the contractors, lt
was found that the stone was *ioth;
ing but the outer shell of construction, largely composed of a kind of reinforced concrete. In view of the gen
erally entertained belief that this-is
an essentially modern variety of
structural material, the proof of Its
employment between 300 and 400
years ago ls distinctly interesting.

among them. To quote his own words,
'"'ihey have given me of their besi,
and I have cuarged them for advio-
and medicine at the lowest possible
Tate. I did not fix on threepenny and
fourpenny and sixpenny fees because
I saw good business in it. I did so
because I felt that these sums represented what one guinea and tive
fuinea fees would m-an to others; and
have been surprisingly rewarded,
for my income runs into about $5,000
a year. I see as many as 100 and 150
patients a day. On one or two occasions, when children's troubles have
been rather prevalent in the district, \
I have treated as many as 300 in one''
���day, and my hardest working days
have been the happiest."

Ths St. l.eger (pronounced Sellerger)
at Doncaster, is the great race of tlie
year to'sporting York��hir$men.. Sir
Tatton Sy/.es, the first, father of tlie
present baronet, is said to have seen
*even!y-s x St. Legeti, the last being ln
1861, just fifty years ago. A stranger
once m Doncaster during the, races
asked a landlord what there was worth
seeing. "Hast seen Sir Tatton?" queried boniface. "Oh, yes," was tha reply. "And hast seen Volti?" (Volti-
jgeur, a popular Yorkshire horse, winner in 1850). "I have," replied the
guest. "Then," said the landlord, with
a sigh, "there's naught else worth
troubling about."

, The  Difference.
The seriousness of Mr. Gladstone
prevented him from introducing into
sociul converse any of those lighter
..touches for which the flamboyant Disraeli was famous. The difference between the two was. perhaps-, never
more finely indicated than by tlie
lady who said:
"After I had tallied with Mr. Gladstone for a while, 1 thought he wa-
the greatest man I had ever met,
but alter Lord Ilescotisfftld had been
talking to me for ten minutes, I wa?
��ure 1 was the most wonderful wo-
liian he had ever known."
