TEXAS ORATOR
IN TINE ERENZY
Denouncea as Political Cowards Men
Who Vote for Big Graft in Shape

Washington. Dec. 11.���A fiery denunciation^ "political cowards" who
vote for "big graft" in the shape of
pension legislation, was delivered in
the house during the debate on the
Sherwood "dollar a day" pension bill,
by Representative Dies (Democrat,
Texas), who shouted:
"This measure is nothing more
than a gigantic $50,000,0u0 campaign
contribution, to be made by men who
are not voting tbeir conxlcticns on
the pension question, but wbo are supporting the Increase of pensions in
itle /liar that- if they fail to do eo,
tbey would lose their seats in this
bouse."
Turning    to the    Democrats
shaking a menacing finger over
majority, Dies said:
"Flannel-mouthed oratory on
tariff question won't save you Democrats from the charge of having increased the federal appopriations.
The Democrats are just aa cowardly
on this question as the Republicans.
Wbat are we going to do when *e
have a civil list ? A million government employees are now demanding
pensions. The president has capitu-
dated. I take It that our leaders on
the Democratic side will capitulate

South Vancouver, Dec. 11. ��� A
tragedy of a sort raie ta Biitish Columbia was reported to the municipal
police here this morning. G. H. Wool-
ridge, contracting carpenter, returned from work in Vancouver on Saturday afternoon to flnd his wife of two
years and their babe flve weeks old,
with their throats cut. A half open
razor, smeared with blood, lay near

spectacle that greeted the unhappy

tive votes, the remaining members
merely abstaining  from  voting.
Mr. Hubert, of the foreign affairs
committee, proposed that the chamber shoul 1 refrain from discussing
the agreements, but adopt them without debate and reserve criticism until a later date through a general Interpellation upon the minister's foreign policy. A proposal such as this
could not be initiated officially, but
would have to be carried out by a previous agreement between all the
groups. At flrst tbe Idea met with
favor, but present considerations
foreshadow its failure.
The principal reason for the dissatisfaction of the deputies with the
agreements baa been the silence of
the ministry ln regard to Spain's
position in Morocco under the new
regime. The Franco-German convention specifically defines Morocco as
the whole of tbe northwest corner
of Africa, while the Franco-Spanish
treaty gives to Spain certain portions
cf tbe country. Another source of discontent Is over the question of how
far the Algeclraa convention remains
valid.
The government has remained silent on these points, and several Paris
newspapers bave Intimated that it Is
the purpose of Premier Csillaux to
compel Spain to abandon Morocco.
It Is also rumored tbat the French
officials hav* cattsed sfl Intimation
te reach King Alfonso that thn safety
1 of the Spanish throne depends upon
his attitude toward France. It Is
cynically alleged that It would cost
less to foment a republican revolu

and also recommending tbat the B. C.

THRIFT   IN   EUROPE.
France  Continues to  Lead   the   Na-
tlona in Frugal Living.
The quality or attribute of thrift or
frugality varies among the respective races of humanity Just as lt does
among Individuals.
The French housewife usually does
her shopping personally, and buys
direct from the market or the barrows, which, piled high with fruit,
flowers, vegetables, etc., form such a
fragrant and familiar feature of the
Paris streets. Purchasing In this
homely (fashion the shrewd housekeeper of France saves a certain
percentage which the British or Canadian tradesman's system of booking anl delivering orders   Inevitably
entails.
The French are thrifty, not to say
economical, ln cookery ns well as In
catering. They may be accused of
extravagance ta the elaboration or
the Indispensable dinner and the
equally Inevitable hors d'oeuvre. But
they say these latter tit-bits cause
them to eat less of the Joint, and so
effect a saving ln the dearer meat.
These apparent extravagances are
more than counterbalanced by tho
care and skill which will evolve a
=avory and nutritious dish from tho
simplest and Icheapest ingredients.
The fame of French cookery ls worldwide; it amounts almost to genius.
To a certain extent, economy on
the part of the French householder
is compulsory as well as Instinctive.
Salaries and earnings, particularly
those of the official and professional
classes, are less than ln England
taxntion ls on the whole higher, and
commodities are dearer all round.
With coal at $14 per ton, as in Paris,
a good bright flre is something of a
luxury This trait of thriftiness characterizes the French in almost every
department of life. As one of their
own writers has said, tliey are not
ai t at spending. Here, he says, they
must go to school to the Anglo-Saxon.
In the matter of hospitality and
entertaining they are more careful
than we are, and the furnishing and
fitting up of a house, for instance, ia
done ta France once and for all. Another French writer has said that
British middle class folks will spend
more upon their homes in twelve
n-.onths than Fiench folks of the
same standing throughout the entire
course of their married lives.
In dress, as in cookery, the Frenchwoman achieves marvellous results
with the strictest regard for economy. A French lady must not only
never lie shabby, she must never be
out of fashion. Her aiding principle bas been well expressed by
Buiwer-Lytton: "No well-dressed
woman ever looks ugly." As to tho
means by which these proverbially
good results are obtained the reader
must be referred to that authority on
home life in Fiance���Miss Bentham-
Edwards. "The economical have recourse to the malson de patrons, or
patternship."
Of Get man life In town and country there \a a good deal ot misconception in this country, most of whloh
Vs based on Ignorance. The popu&r
idea that the subjects of the kule<:r
subsist solely on sausage and 3:1 te--
kraut Is a libel. Just as the Bridsu
idea of the German hausfrau as a
dowdy matron who spends all her
time in kitchen and pantry is quite a
mistaken one.
In some of the more pastoral parts
cf Germany the position of women
is not what it is in this country.
'They plow and harrow side by sldo
with the men, dig potatoes and perform a goo! deal of tlie laborious
work of the tann. But in Berlin
and other large citie-s of the Fatherland matters are \eiy different. Thfl
modern "Beriinei in" will drees aa
���1 tly as any Parisienne, and yet
withal makes a most capable housewife and a devoted mother.
The Italian peasant, poor and overtaxed, is of necessity economical, but
he Is by temperament, sober and frugal in his mode of life. Macaroni and
olive oil seem to be his staple articles of diet. ' Beans with oil and
salt are held by the peasantry to be
a dish flt lor the gods. Chestnut
trees flourish on the Apennines, and
the nuts form a nutritive food���even
being ground into flour and made Into a kind of bread���for the poorer
peasants of the country.
The dwellers lis the Italian towns
are also, for the most part, frugal
and abstemious ta their habits; they
eat and drink sparingly and are good
cooks. They are. too. addicted to
such harmless pleasures as cafe or
theatre visiting. Theie on Sunday
or Thursday nights (the latter the
weekly half-holiday) the good burgher and his wife may be seen clad in
their Sunday best. They spend little,
but seem to enjoy life. The Italian
woman is clever wilh her needle, an!
doi s wonders in the way of dross.
But. she Is proud aud would rather
stay at home than look shabby or
impoverished in nubile. They dress
carefully, and are careful of their
dress, and men and women are Invariably well-gropmrd.
ASPECTS OF   CHINESE LIFE.
Newspapermen Tell, of Experiences in
Northern  China.
Two British newspaper correspondents who recently made a tour of
Manchuria, give amusing description?
of the Chinese and Chinese life. They
had travelled 18 miles into Manchuria
by way of the Moscow-Vladlvostock
railway, but left the Russian road at
the little village of Angangkl, tui ned
their traps over to a couple of Chinese, and made their way across
country to take the light ' Chinese
railway to Tsitsitear.
IThe little Chinese station was run
by the Chinese for the Chinese. The
porters were Chinese. Thc post of
the signal bell tapered off Into a be.iu-
tifully carved dragon's face, 11 bright
blue dragon that snorted flames from
its terrible nostrils���crimson tufts of
wool at the tip of drooping wires
rooted ln the nostrils. A Chinaman
served out tickets, and they waited
five Chinese hours���which is eight���
ln a Chinese tea den near by, where
they fed upon Chinese viands and
drank   cf  Chinese   drinks  an!   were
exhibited to all the inhabitants of
tho mud-walled settlement around the
station.
After tight hours, the toyshop train
clattered in. Out of the single first-
class compartment tumbled a stern
old Manchu trader, who packed much
merchandise���a baby, bis pi ctty little
wife in a short blue shirt and tang
pink pyjamas, spangled with snakes
and iriiescent flowers, and a big blua
gramophone horn!���on a hooded, tilt-
back bullock cart.
A curious run it was to Tsitsitear.
In many respects the country was not
unlike the Norfolk coast in England.
Green meadows, pietty villages nestling in their grove of trees���new
trees, not the eternal pine or the
bare white birch left behind ln Siberia. Brick and heat clay-walled villages, Instead of logs and timber.
Here und there a naked sandhill.
Many broad, biackish pools, shallow
and rimmed with salt; duck flurrying
up from their sedgebeds and willow
scrub, a heron lazily flapping away to
the horizon.
There was no Russiun hotel, so
the two newspaper men lodged with
the Celestials ln the baiting hostelry
df Tar Sta Chan, and fed upon sea-
slugs and bamboo sprouts, and various anatomical odds and ends that
at home are very properly flung Into
the dust bin.
The Chinese they found to be 1
chattering, bright, vivacious people.
Their homes and streets might be
squalid, but the Chinese lived. They
were not content with the mere morose existence of cattle, like the Siberian peasant���laughing and breaking into song. Joking and petting children and dogs. They did things
prettily and gaily. They carved and
painted their sign-posts and gates
and gables. They ate unsparingly of
a host of savory little dishes, besides
such delicacies as do not appeal to an
Occidental palate, though much poorer than the Siberian peasant family,
which earns $10 or $15 a week, and
lives gloomily on tea and dry bread.
Round the corner into the thronged
bazaar came one morning His Exalted Excellency the Governor-General
Jow Shoo Mo, of the Province of Tsitsitear, a power in the north of the
���Chinese empire, who Is entitled to
,v. zzv lhe covctsd red glass ball on e
top of his white lamp shade hat,
whose displeasure can Bpe'l summary
death to fiome hundred thousand
men.
On ahead traveled a emart little
Chinese soldier In khaki and ;>uttees
Then two native mounted police ta
dark blue canvas, their queues flying behind in the breeze. A four-
wheeler with two blue enamel panels,
a big glass window in the buck, and
bright nickel lods for the two barefooted footmen to cling to���drawn by
two unmatched horses, this hybrid
state equipage swept swiftly by. giving one Just a glimpse of a stern.i
erect figure within, red tassels and a
peacock feather dangling from his
comical white hat. A mounted soldier brought up the rear.

cot out tbe ratloni.    What yon sot
aboard'/"
Without a word Mr. FUdd aet forth
a |,ut of cold coffee, a can of pilot
bread, some rancid butter, a cold boiled egg and balf a mince pie. and in
sileuce Abel Watkins stowed away
the victuals. By tbe time this ceremony waa concluded lt was after 'i
j J I o'clock.
Tbe wind bad changed to tbe southeast, and the sky wus overcast as they
shot out from under the shudow ot
the long pier and beaded across tbe
bay. it was three miles to Cedar
creek, wbere tbe phantom pirate wus
supposed to be In biding. Tbey made
tbe wreck near the creek's mouth and
made fust to ber rotting timbers. She
loomed big and black above the natty
little launch and afforded a measure
of protection from observation. Abel
and Myron Fludd lounged in tbe cab-
In aud took turns watching tbrongb
tbe tiuy portholes for some sign of
life near tbe mouth of tbe creek.
Tbere was uotblng save au occasional kingfisher to disturb tbe solitude.
Hour ufter bour passed ln tedious
waiting.
"Maybe  be  went  while you   were
across tbe bay," suggested Abel Wat-
j kins.
"There wasn't flve minutes I didn't
j liave   my   glasses   trained   on   that
I creek."   said   Myron   sburply.     "Confound blm!   Why can't be come out?"
"Let's   go   after   blm,"   suggested
Abel.   "We might as well catcb him
ln tbere as to chase blm all around
Little Hirer bay."
Myron Flndd agreed, and just as tht
dny was fading tbey panted Into Cedai
creek and made for Its upper reaches.
There, drawn on a little pebbly beach
nud half bidden In tne tall salt grass,
���was a narrow, dark gray motorbont
Lounging on tbe deck was a long limb
ed young mun. who shot to his feet
as tbey approached.
"Well, what is it?" be asked sharply
as I'ludd's launch grounded ln the soft
mud.
Myron   Kladd   stepped   ashore   nnd
crushed through the grass to the side
of the grny launch.   He drew n short
barreled shotgun from underneath his
I pilot coat. and. throwing back the lapel
j uf   fhe  garment,   he   flashed   n   brief
j glimpse  of   bis   fireman's   badge  and
: cried authoritatively:
"Hold np your hands, ln tbe name
) Of the law:"
The stranger threw up his bands
i With one he cnticht tbe gun barrel
and twisted the weapon ont of Myron's
! bauds; wilh the other be lifted tbat
stout goutleman to tbe deck of thf
craft by way of a strong grip Insid*
the collar of his coat. With Itghtninp:
like rapidity he snatched up a r��i>*
aud tied the u m bit Unix pirate buiitei
with a dozen bard knots.
Tbeu the stranger leveled the shot
gun nt the shrinking form of Abci
Watkius and beckoned with a long una
crooked forefinger. "Cocit1 bere:" tit
ordered unkindly.

"You've got a chance to go without

For one instant Abel paused: tben

"Good for yon. Abel. Ton made n

Abel let himself dowp the gangway

THE DUKE'S ADVICE
The advice of the Duke of Connaught to the Canadian newspaper
editors was well meant and good.
There is no doubt that a lot of very
slip-shod English does get Into the
papers, says the Ottawa Free Press.
If H. R. H. had to take charge of ft'
daily newspaper tor a week he would
realize why this is so, and bow it is
almost impossible to overcome the defect which is Just as apparent and
annoying to tbe editors as it is to
bim.
Few people have any idea of the
rush in which a newspaper, especially an afternoon newspaper, ls produced. It Is one constant race against
time. Between the hours of noon and
three o'clock news pours into the office In a flood from telegraphic wires
telephones and reporters.
The stories thus received have to
be written with scarcely any opportunity for revision or careful thought.
.Nor is there time for proper editing:
the "copy" must be rushed off to the
linotypes. The proof reading has also to be done ln a mad rush; the
forms are waiting for type, and they
.must not be delayed, for mails wait
lor no man.

solicitor.   In the matter of raising the
scale of wages for all those employed
on city contracts, equally    successful
results bad been obtained.   A resolution was introduced into the council
and passed making it necessary for
every new  council  to draw  up    an- '
nually regulations governing the conditions of labor   and   the   scale   of j
wages  to  be paid  for the following
year on all  city contracts.    The recall, and payment for aldermen were ,
the two remaining subjects raised bv |
the speaker.    Of these, he advocated
the recall.    "The putting of working-
men Into the    council    is a straight

to get results," and if these results
were not forthcoming he thought that
there should be some means of getting rid of them In less than a year's
time. Payment of aldermen, however, he did not seem to favor. "No
man," he said, "does all his work for
wages, or for wages alone," and tho

and went on to accuse the present
board of "having no use for the working man." However, he gave "this
mutual admiration society" the credit
for one good act, namely the provision of sufficient play grounds for
the children. The union clause In
specifications of contracts next occupied his attention, and, although his
motion that a union clause should
be incorporated in all contracts had
been turned down, yet on two out of
the three schools now building, namely, the Sixth avenue and Queensborough schools, union wages were
being paid: Of Sapperton ue com

payment of the latter.

Alderman  Dodd.
Before thc  meeting  proceeded    to
*he nomination   of   candidates,   tho
<haiiman,  Mr.  A.   Hogg,    called    on
���those who had represented labor during the passing year to give an uc*
���count  of  their  stewardship.      Aider*
man Dodd was the tiisi to speak. He-
fore   tassing  in   review   the   various
enactments       since     January,      he
stated,  that  the  credit  lor  them   belonged to tho whole council with the
possible exception of one or two. ii-:
then  touched on  the  exemption    oi
improvements from    taxation.    This
lie  said, they  had  had  referred    to
: the people, and the people baJ    approved of lt.    ln future before    any
. new council could tax improvements
. they would have to refer the question
. again to a plebiscite.   The eight hour
��� day for city employees was another
reform that had been put into practice after a little delay, and the
wages of the city workmen had been
raised from $2.50 for a nine hour day
, to $2.75 for an eight bour day. Passing on to the $2 road tax, the speaker
told how, before this year, every man
.that was not ��� an owner of property
had to pay this tax. That was now
changed, for everyone whose name
was on the householders' list waa
���exempt. "The tax in fact has become
nothing but a fine for not having your
name on the householders' list."
Mr. Dodd then    briefly    mentioned
��� the bread by-law, and the improvements made in the sanitary condition
ot the city. A by-law of $12,000 for
the purchase of equipment for- the
health department had been put and
piisEtd, and a new health by-law was
.even  now in the hands of the city
figure, he thought, was much too
high, there being no need for the
building to be erected so centrally as
to be easily seen from the middle of
tho town, as the rest of the trustees
wished. Better payment of teachers
received hls strong support. "We
| have got good teachers, but we find
they are drifting o".t all the time because they can get better pay elsewhere," he said. He also expressed a
wish that the teachers would organize
The blame for the overcrowding of
schools and the consequent election
of tents he laid on the board of 1910,
which had ill-advisedly submitted tho
Hieh school and public school by-law
all in one. with the result that it was
turned down. This mistake he claimed he had prevented in 1911, and the
schools were now being built.
After some remarks condemning
the nurse and doctor system as too
drastic, Mr. Stoney turned to his own
position on the board, and asked tbe
meeting earnestly not to elect him
alone a second time. "If you are going to send me back alone. I would
taken for the coming elections. Reso-
lutions were made and passed, that
four candidates for aldermanic honors
be nominated, and two for the school
board, the meeting at the same time

meeting for their nominations, and
Mr. Cotsworth took the opportunity
of stigmatizing the advance in realty
values as an unfair tax on incoming
Britishers, anl on the Canadian
working man, while Mr. Stoney asked his hearers to give their, full support to the women candidates for tho

PUBLIC   HEALTH   IN
SOUTH
VANCOUVER
South Vancouver, Dec. 11.���Health
Insi.ector Pengdly has been stirring
up the sluggards, under the health
by-laws.
Hans Espland, Westminster road,
Collingwoo.l, forfeited $2.50 and costs
on Saturday for keeping a live pig.
Claud Voting, plumber, Main street,
wus tbis morning charged with keep-
iug an accumulation of manure to the
���danger of the public health. Inspector Pengelly said accused had beeu
warned. Magistrate McArthur imp03
ed a tine of $5 and costs.
"People are so dilatory when notice
is sent," said tbe magistrate to John
McDonald, who was charged with allowing crude sewage to run from hla
premises.
The inspector said scarlet fever had
broken out ln that neighborhood. Mc
iionald was fined $10 and costs.
Brothers Take Their Places In Penal
Institutions Reserved for Such
as They.
San Quentin, Cal., Dec. 11.���John J.
McNamara is no more the "big man,"
the powerful labor leader, the secretary of the International Association
of Bridge and Structural Ironworkers.
He is convict No. 25315. His brother
James, who by his direction Is said
to have drawn a trail of death and
ruin from coast to coast, is convict
No. 25314. They are milling jute today, a task James may continue until
death, and that John J. will surely
have for many years.
The McNamaras arose early today.
They were out of their cots and at
the doors of their cells at 6:50, Just
as tbe dawn was driving away tbe
mists about tbe prison. Then a short
breakfast came, and at 7:15 the looms
In the ]ute mill began tbe clane and
clash wbicb will ring in tbe ears of
the dynamiters until their debt is
paid.
There is a chance that James B.
McNamara, however, will escape tbe
Jute mill. He is a printer, and as
such may be used ln tbe printing
plant of the prison. Today or tomorrow he wlll be examined for tuberculosis indications and, failing these,
he may obtain the privilege of tho
type case���a privilege much esteemed in San Quentin. What John J.
will ultimately be employed at is yet
uncertain. For the present he will
weave Jute.
The future���that is, doubtless, the
whole thought of both men. James
B. McNamara's mind may be focused
eight years from today, when he
shall be permitted to ask for parole.
John J. McNamara looks ahead five
years, when he, too, may ask for
freedom.

Anda. Tbe flrst offender to be
gathered ln was Archie Schournlere.
who appeared before George E. Mc-
Fall, Justice of the peace for Powell
River, last Saturday and was assessed a fine of $100 and costs with the
option of two months ln the govern
ment employ. The magistrate stated
that his leniency was prompted by
the fact tbat the accused occasioned
tbe first prosecution of the kind in
Powell River, but tbat Schournlere's
successors would be given tbe limit
laid down in the code. A brace ot
card sharpers were given a word of
advice and sufficient handicap to get
from the police court down to the
steamer wharf in advance of the provincial officer. They accepted both
and disappeared.
ister, lt was practically decided to
oppose Hon. G. P. Graham in South
Renfrew, despite the compact entered
into by the Conservative executive of
the county to give h'im an acclamation
in return for the election ot T. W
McCarry to the provincial bouse,
without opposition. A convention
will be called in the course of ten
days to name a candidate and Dr.
Maloney will in all probability be the
choice. The federal Conservative
organization says it is not bound by
tbe terms of the agreement entered
Into.

FOOD AND SHELTER
Mr. Gilbert, who left a horse at the
B. C. Cannery during the bad weather

out on suspended sentence on these
conditions. *.*...
