HEAD-ON COLLISION
DID LlfTLE DAMAGE
Vancouver, Dec. St.���"I believe tho
Fraser River, between New Westmin.
tter and tha tea, la dettined to play
an important role In a commercial
sense. With tbe rapid growth of
Vancouver and the lower mainland,
the time wlll come when suitable
waleffrontage on Burrard Inlet will
become so congested that additional
facilities will bave to be provided eiae
where. The Fraaer River wUI help
to solve the problem, as lt can, with
the Judicious expenditure of money,
be made navigable for ocean steam
tblpe of deep draught as far inland
as New Westminster and Port Mann,
an.l along its shores, Including the
Noith Arm, extensive docks can be
constructed.'

Burnaby Lake   Car    Runt Into One
From Vancouver���Glass Smashed
and Cab Broken.
A serious accident was only Just
avoided on tbe B. C. E. R. interurban
line yesterday, when a head-on collision occurred between the 12:30 car
from Vancouver and a Buinaby Lake
car that was running Into the neighboring city. The passengers In the
cart were almost Jerked out of their
seats by an abrupt shock Juet at the
point where the Burnaby track Joins
the main line. Tbere waa a crash
of splintering flats tnd It wtt teen
that the two cart had run Into each
other, luckily without doing any
damage except to the motormen's
cabs.
When the cars had beea backed
away, It waa found that tbe Burnaby
Lake tram had had the wont of the
encounter. Its cab was badly bent,
and all the windows were broken. The
Central Park car also had a good deal
of glass smashed, and both of the
fenders were crumpled up so ae to
be absolutely useless. Apparently
the slippery condition of the rails was
to be blamed for the accident.. The
Central Park cat proceeded to New
Westminster after a short halt, and
versation with a newspaperman today. Mr. Coste Is on his way home
having Just completed, on behalf of
the Dominion government, an examination of the harbor at Victoria,
with a view to recommending the
best means of converting lt into a
modern ocean port. Mr. Costa
Studied the question in detail during
hls stay there, but declined to dls
cubs lt at this Juncture, as lie has not
yet prepared his official report.
Mr. Coste. who ls a member ot tho
International Waterways Commission
and a former chief engineer of the
public works department, has always
taken a deep interest in the improvement of the Fraaer River. Several
years ago he wus comlssioned by the
fedeial government to examine, tho
river between New Westminster and
the tea, wilh a view to recommending  improvements  to navigation and
to get to Vancouver after a brief delay.

be long before tbe export grain ot
all Alberta and half of Saskatchewan
will seek an outlet via the Paciflc
coast. The grain traffic on the
prai.ies and at terminal points like
Fort William is now often congested
for months, and conditions will not
tend to improve with the increased
acreage put under cultivation each
succeeding year. Tbe Canadiau
Northern Railway will soon be a factor in British Columbia transportation, and if the Grand Trunk Paciflc
carilee out its promise of building a
branch line from Fort George, Van

Canadian transcontinental railways,
besides the Great Northern and its
allied lines. . There Is no question
that the opening of the Panama Canal
will exert a very great influence In
building up Vancouver and vicinity.
For practical purposes, New Westmlnater and Port Mann 'will, under
the new conditions soon tb arrive,
come to be regarded aa one community, with practically ' Identical Interests.
Opposed to Present Plan.
"Now I think that having regard ! *����
for the  future it  would  be a wise    """
move on the part of the Dominion
government not to carry out any plan
of permanent  improvements on  the
Fraser.urttil it could secure a report
from, a commission of at least three
engineering experts.   The task la too
big to entrust 'to one man���by appointing a commission the advantage
of securing an Interchange of ldeei
and adopting the beat plan ia obvious.
"From my observations made during a personal examination several
years ago, I reached tbe conclusion
that the flrst move ln any scheme of
Improvements   should be   to central
the channel In the neighborhood ot
Ladner    Landing    and    Woodwards
Slough.   The river near there shows
a tendency to shift, and there ls a
certain amount of danger that It may
make further lnroada do the*south
bank and force a new outlet to the
tea north of Boundary Bay. For thto
reason I think that the crux of the
whole question Ilea In the proper control of the river Near Ladner Landing
by dredging and by the construction
of revetment wall* and wing dams.
Meantime, with due respect. I think
it unwise and ennecefesary to talk of
making permanent improvements farther down the stream.'' -The proposed
construction, of a lon?' Jetty extend;

Martial law has been declared In
Teljeran as a result of the announcement that the Cabinet has dismissed
Shuster. Crowds threaten the ministry and indignation meetings are being held ln many of the mosques.
Persians today drove away Cossacks guarding tbe Russo-Perslan
bank, but there were no casualties of
note during the clash.
Resht telegrat lu Teheran that the
city is quiet, but that futher outbreaks are feared.
The proclamation of martial law at
Teheran, following the dismissal of
W. Morgan Shutter by the Persian
cabinet and the fragmentary reports
received as to a bloody massacre by
Russian soldiery at Resbt are causing eerious apprehension. Little additional information regarding the reported massacre has been received.
The main trouble occurred laat Sun*
day, when the killed at Retht are
aald to have numbered 600, including
some women and children. Direct
dispatches from Teheran made no reference to these casua'ties, and a report from the Russian consul at that
point states that order la now restored
although he la preparing for further
outbreaks;
The strategic point of Tabriz, 350
miles to the northwest of Teherad, is
another centre of constant collisions |
between the Russian and Persian element!. One dispatch says the Russian artillery swept the streets, while
another, through Russian .sources,
aayt a condition of anarchy exists,
even tbe banks being without adequate guards. ,

EARL TAKE8 JOB OF
..MAID IN HUMBLE HOME
London, Dec. 26.���The Earl of Yarmouth, since bis recent bankruptcy,
has been forced to lead the really
simple life. He is now living with a
family named Tebbs, at Swanage,
near Bournemouth, in Hampshire,
and frequently helps them by doing
cooking and general housework. It- is
not known whether he gets a weekly
shilling excursion ' to Bournemouth
for his day off, as do the regular
housemaids of thp place, but tbe facts
are he ls making himself remarkably
useful and is happy an.l contented.
When he owned a bungalow on tho
Thames he flrst became friendly with
the Tebbais, who were then quite
wealthy, and Mrs. Tebb3 mothered the Irresponsible earl. Now the
Tebbs family have fallen on evil days,
so they gladly took Yarmouth in
when he had no place else to go, Inasmuch as ho was the only servant
they  could afford.
his father, the Marquis of Hertford,
has now declined to have anything
to do with him, recently writing tbat
if hla son made a few friends of hla
own class Instead of mixing with ��*���*>
cond-rale actors und actresses, he
might have lecelved help The earl-'a
friends predict that his next move
will be Into the chorus of the Gaiety
theatre, which is getting to be the
borne for nobility, containing as it
doea the daughters of Lord Montagu,
lteaulieu and  Viscount. Dangan.

���Arthur Guiterman, in the New York I
Sun. ;
times have been very numerous. The
Greek and Roman bib to riant wrote o'
elephants there, and a little before
the Christian era as many as a'hundred of them were often exhibited at
one time in the Roman circus. There
is proof, however, that these animals were ot the African variety.
The elephant head stamped on man/
medala and coins Invariably had tbe
large ears and cranial peculiarities
which so plainly differentiate the African from the Asian species. Many
petroglypha and pictures on the rock
walls of the Atlas Mountaina strikingly depicted the characteristics ot
the African animal. The Wild herd-
eiB of the Atlas Mountains drew their
elephant as they saw him, and it was
strikingly a picture of the Aft lean
variety of today as the rock drawings of the Bushmen which so Xnlth-
lully outlined the animals of the Kalahari Detert.     *
The elephant no longer exists ln
North Africa because he has been
exterminated by man. Two factors
control tue dlatributlon of the elephants in Africa and the size of their
heids. One is the abundance or the
scarcity of the plants on which they
live; the other ls tho presence or absence of man. The whites want the
elephant for his ivory, and the blacks
for his flesh, lhe elephant seeks new
stamping grounds lf either the whites
or the blacks become uncomfortably
numerous.
The result ls that from great regions where he waa once very nu-
meioua Ue baa now entirely disappeared. He has been bunted for hia
ivory In the basin of the Nile till ho
lias totally disappeared from large
parts of It. He has vanished froin
nearly the whole of German East Africa. He is still found In considerable numbers in British East Africa,
and approaches the coast near tlie
mouth of the Tana River, for this region la sparsely people and hunters
seldom visit it. A century ago he
was often seen near the mouth of the
Congo, but there are few parts of tha
African coast which he now approaches within scares of miles. The
area around Victoria Nymza are
amongst the moat favore.l haunta of
the elephants, but today there are
fewer herds and they are smaller. He
once ranged over the whole of South
Africa wherever plant food could be
found, but he has now disappeared
from thia great region almoat to the
Zambesi Rivfer, and the only reason
la the advancement of white enterprises and the multiplication of his
human enemies. He still Uvea in
great numbers in the vast foreat re-
glona of Weat Africa, the eastern part
of the Belgian aud French Congoes,
and in other great inland territories
with meagre population; but railroads and white stations are pushing into some of his greatest strongholds, and he will be exterminated
or driven out. Judging from present
progress in Africa, it will not be
very long before he will be unable to
find unappropriated areas to which
lie can still retreat.
All the blacks now know the value
of Ivory. They can buy with it the
good things the white man has to
sell and enjoy besides the usual
quantity meat. This new Incentive
to destroy the animal is giving keener zest to the chase. The colonial
governments have established a number of reservations within which the
elephant can feed and breed in safety; but they are also building railroads and planting stations in sonrs
of these reserves, and the elephant
will not remain in the neighborhood
of such Intrusions. Meanwhile the efforts to tame hlm and make him the
helper of man are being continued,
and there Is' some encouragement to
perserve.
Strange aa it may seem, thia heavy
and unwieldy animal is a good mountain climber. He haa been found in
undisturbed possessions of feeding
grounds at heights of 8200 feet in
Abyssinia, anl according to Gregory-
above the tree line, at about 14,000
feet, on Kilimanjaro; and a number
of other African, mountaineers havo
reported him at heights of 10,000 feet
or moro. If the African elephant la
doomed to dwindle and disappear, we
may imagine that the last of hla race
will be found high un among the
mountains., where, many of. them
browse today at altitudes Beldom visited by hunters.

SOME FACTS ABOUT
DREAD DEAD SEA
Tho Dead Sea is some forty-seven
miles long, and about ten miles Wide
at its greatest breadth. Curiously
enough, it lies 1.100 feet below the
level of the Mediterranean. Many
ridiculous stories, are told about this
sheet of vyater. even In Palestine Itself. -For. instance, people will tell
you in. Jerusalerfi that It la Impossible to swim in its waters, and that no
animal or vegetables can exist near
its shores. While it. is true that fish
cannot live ln the lake, birds may
frequently be seen, in certain places,
flying over tho surface.
���As for swimming, the excessive
buoyancy of the water merely renders it. difficult to make much headway,  but   swimming  is  both  feasible

near to death, and his friends suggested tending for tbe minister. But
the old chan did not want a spiritual

did not want hymns. "A'm wanting

Where Ht Worked.
Mr. Keir Hardie is noted for the
carelessness of his attire. Not long
.ago. when some repairs were being
done to the House of Commons, Mr.
Hardie was lounging, in the library,
when he was accosted by a friendly
policeman, who quite tailed to recog-
' late him in his somewhat shabby
clothes. "'Ullo, matey!" exclaimed
the man in blue. "Are you working
here?" "Yes," replied Mr. Hardie, laconically. "On Ule roof?" asked the
champion oi law and order. "So,"
said the Labor leader, with a quiet
smile; "not on the roof. I' work on
the floor of this House." Nor wat
this the only time that Mr. Hardit's
unassuming attire bas led to a misconception of his identity. When he
was in Belgium a itW years ago he
was .arrested and detained soma time
on suspicion of being in sympathy
with a notorious Anarchist who WM

Historic Pens.
The r��"n with which the Treaty ot
Vienna was signed is preserved in the
family of VisCount Bangor, and is always used in signing the register
when marriages of members ot that
family take place. Mr. Ward, who
afterwards succeeded to the title, was
private secretary to Lord Castlerea"ih
at the time of the signing of the
treaty, and picked up as a trcasurs
the nen with which it had been signed, ^"he pen used by Charles Diekens

if any, strikes could long survive

very soon decide that extreme measures on either hand were exceedingly detrimental to their best interests..
The public does not like to be 'inconvenienced, but neither will it condone injustice on the part of employers,'nor arbitrary actions on the
part of employees, and tt will probably be found tbat tbe experimental
legislation of the British government
will become ultimately embodied in an

With regard to the future of the
cup, tbe Senior' Amateurs have consented to let it be offered for competition in tbe City league games of
next season, namely 1911,1912, a fact
which should prove encouraging to
the teams playing In this league.
The silverware Itself will be on exhibition shortly at Mr. Ryall's offlce.
No CMy League game will be
played next Saturday, but tbe Senior
Amateurs are scheduled to play tbe
V.A.C. on that day on the * home
ground. Thl* match should prove a
great attraction to the football' enthusiasts of the city, as a good game
is almost certain to result from the
meeting. When New Westminster
went over to .Vancouver, tbe V.A.C.
beat them by three goals to nil, but
this score does not give a line on
the coming match, as the local men
were handicapped on that occasion,
an.i now they are out to get theli
own back. The fact that they are
playing at home should also help,
especially If they get the support
they deserve on the touch line from
their local supporters.
The Thistles have now ousted the
Celtics from their position as leaders
ln the Senior League. This is the
result of the former having defeated
the Hibernians by three goals to two
on Christmas Day. Westminster
stands fourth In the league with Hibernians at the bottom
measure for the Emerald Isle which
led to the split between himself and
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain in 1886, tbe
year when the sbortest-llved parliament of modern times ended, Gladstone coming into power in November
1885, and going out ln March the following year. Mr. Chamberlain was
then president of the Local Government Board. He refused to follow
Mr. Gladstone on the Home Rule
question and, together with Sir
George Trevelyan, quitted office. It
was over nine years before Mr.
Chamberlain became a cabinet minister again.
It was later in the same year, December, 1886, that Lord 'Randolph
Churchill, who ln August had become
chancellor of the exchequer and leader of the House of Commons, advocated a policy of stringent retrenchment, ! and consequently fell foul of
Lord Salisbury. He reslgne.l, resolving, to quote his own words, "to sacrifice himself on the altar of thrift
and economy."

New Westminster people appreciate
tbe efforts of the new management
of the Opera House to provide a good
show In a comfortable house. Those
who remember the Westminster
Opera House In the old days will be
surprised when they step into the
remodelled playhouse and among the
pleasing and comfortable surroundings witness a first class production
such as "Polly of tbe Circus." All
sit,ns point to a capacity house for
Thursday night when his worship
Mayor l.ee wlll officially open what
will really be a new and a fully
mo.lern  playhouse.
Of the opening show, "Polly of the
Circus," It Is sufficient to say that it
ls one of Frederic Thompson's best
productions, equalling that great success "Brewster's Millions." Por
solid year it was played at the Liberty Theatre. New York City, and on
Its tour through the west has played
everywhere to crowded houses. It is
a play that appeals to old and young
of all tastes and Inclinations, for in
Its delineation of human life and character It touches a responsive chord In
��very breast. Ida St. Leon as Polly,
puts life and thrill into every act and
-scene and captures every heart. The
famous St. Leon family will all be
there Including Elsie, the youngest
bareback rider in the world. .. In
the company there is a score of well-
known actors, a number of circus
acts that contribute not a little to the
success of the play. The big "sawdust scene" represents a three-ring
circus in actual operation, one of th 3
most realistic pictures ever shown on
the stage of a theatre. The third
act shows the circus leaving the
"lots" after the night's performance,
while ln the foreground stands Polly
and her lover watching the wagons
disappearing across the hills; one ol
the best mechanical effects that has
ever been produced.
nation of Mr. Balfour bas been forced, to a large extent, by the attitude
of the "Die-Hards," who refused to
follow his leadership with regard to
the parliament bill, and preferred to
range themselves under the banner
of Lord Halsbury and Mr. Austen
Chamberlain.
In a sense this episode provides
another illustration of political history, repeating Itself, for when Peel,
the Conservative leader, advocated
the repeal of the Corn Laws, in 1846,
and told his ministerial colleagues
that their repeal was inevitable, some
of them refused to go along with him
and consequently be resigned. Lord
Stanley, afterwards the Earl of Derby, with Lord George Bentinck^Dis-:
raeli, and others, formel a "No'Sur-
render" Tory party. However, the
measure for the repeal was carried
and Peel triumped.
Bright   Was     a   Man   of Peace.
Mr. Gladstone, by tbe way, not only
caused Mr. Joseph Chamberlain to
leave the Liberal party, but his Egyptian pollcy in 1882, which lea to the
bombardment of Alexandria, caused
the resignation of Mr. John Bright,
( who waa then chancellor of the Duchy
. <t , of Lancaster. Mr. Bright explained
afterwards that he resigned because
lt was a matter of conscience with
him, as he believed there had been a
violation of both the international
and moral law.
Almost similar circumstances led
to the split ln Beacon field's cabinet
ln 1878 when Lord Carnarvon,
father of the present earl,' resigned
on account of the interference of
Britain ln the Russo-Turklsh war,
Lord Carnarvon strongly advocated a
policy of neutrality^and he was backed up by Lord Derby, who was foreign secretary, and who also resigned
with Lord Carnarvon.

Incident That Hastened ths Success ef
Telephones In England.
Following tbe establishment on a
solid basis of tbe American telephone
system, work for European exploitation
was early bejrun. The results were
hardly encouraging.
Five-eighths of the British rights
were purchased for $500 by a Providence man. says the National Magazine. After working in London four
months lie could not flnd any one who
would put n shilling in the telephone.
An English review said of lt: "The
telephone Is little better than a toy.
It amuses the English, but is Inferior
to the well established system of air
tubes."
