While a wild gale was raging this !
morning and the coast was hidden la

She was bound for Egypt, and ber j
iatsenger list included* the name   ofi
many   notable  people.    Women  and j
child! en    aboard     were     numerous, j
When she ran ashore the passengers
Were om the verge of    panic,    when
they were held in check by the promise that    lifeboats    could    easily    be '
launched.    But wnen    this    was    at-
tempted it failed.
Tbe    steamer    London    and    the!

time.    They  immediately  started  for j
the  scene,  but  the  stoim   prevented '

Superintendent of Dredges Talks    of
His Trip to Ottawa���Members
Are Busy.
Air, H. A. BayOeld, Dominion
superintendent of dredges, was back
ht work in his od'ice yesterday morning after a three weeks trip to Ottawa and other places ln the EaaL
Mr.i Hay fleld stopped off at Port
Arthur on his way east to Inspect a
dredging plant at that city, and theu
ir.-n-.-A oa to Toronto, Montreal and
Ottawa.
/ "t,v��.rythlng ls to go ahead now as.
last as it can," said Mr. Bayfield.
"Mr. Monk told me himself that British Columbia was going to get everything that was coming to her ln the
futnie. And I may say, that tho
province has seven pretty live members working for her interests down
at Ottawa."
As to details ot the dredging work
to be carried out In the near future,
Mr. Bayfield could say nothing for
the present, except that all vork
would, bo pObbed ahead energetically.
Already flve machines were employed
at Victoria, and this port would be
the scene of great improvements; so
also would every other part of the
province, Including the Fraaer river.
"On Monday next," he announced,
"the Mastodon will go to work on
tbe First Narrows at Vancouver, and
the Sameon will also steam round
there to do aome surveying work."
Mr. Bayfield came right througn
cn his way back to the coast, and
very glad he waa to be here again,
ke said, after traveling around back
east.
Holiday Rush Commenced.
. The Christmas rush is starting in
the customs ollice. and parcel* and
presents from the old country are
arriving dally ln greater and greater
,r* :tnhera. "Of course, things aro not
yet as busy as they will be," said
, tlu ^Hector of customs, "but we
.have plenty to do, and we find It
hard work to cope witli the business
jrtth the present etaff." -
Whether to contribute $25 and
their moral support to the labor candidates for* the city council nominated in Eagles ball on Monday night,
was a question that aroused some
lively discussion at the Trades aad
Labor council last night. The subject was introduced by a letter fiom
the campaign committee asking for
financial and moral support, and
Trustee Stoney moved a resolution,
that the council donate (25 and supply the other desired support The
campaign last year, he said, had cost
In the neighborhood of flOO; this year
it would probably cost a little more,
as a certain - element, which had te-
garded their candidates as a Joke
last year, were going to work harder
against them this time.
The Labor "Ticket."
Treasurer Knudson then arose and
criticized the ticket nominated at the
meeting In question. "1 consider it
a citizens' ticket," he expostulated,
"and not a labor ticket." He toct
exception to Mr. Chapman's nomlna
tion on account of his being an employer of labor, and doubted whether
it was constitutional for them to
support him, until Mr. Cameron
quoted the rules to prove that any
member of a union, as Mr. Chapman
was. could te a member of the
council. With regard to the two
women whom the labor meeting had
indorsed, did tbey know wbctaer
they would support the labor demands or not ? "As far as the ticket
goes," he wound up, "I thiuk it ls all
a farce."
In the subsequent discussion It
wns pointed out that tlie nominations
had been made by a . meeting ot
organize.! and unorganized labor, und
so weie out of the council's hands.
All they weie asked to do was to gho
them their financial and mora! support. Mr. Grant made an appeal to
the members to be unanimous with
regard to the labor candidates, fhn
ineeting the other night had mane
quite a stir in some quan.rs, and
certain iuteiests weie considerably
worried about their action, bet them,
he said, go ahead anil get co.-trol
little by little of the council and th*
school board, so that Anally they
might liave it all.
On the resolution being put to the
vote, it was carried with one dissenting voice.
Taxation of Y. M. C. A. Building.
A strong protest was then voiced
by the meeting against the proposed
exemption of the Y. M. C. A. lrom
taxation. All the speakers were at
one on this point, and it was made
clear that in the view of the meeting the Y. M. C. A. was a business
association like any other. Its property would increase in value like
any other, and it should pay the
taxes like everybody else. By a
unanimous vote ,the secretary was Instructed to send a letter of protest
against the proposed exemption to
the city council.
Thanks, De'egates, Coal  Scuttle.
The remaining business transacted
Included a hearty vote of thanks to
Trustee Stoney and Alderman Dodd
for the good work done by them as
labor's representatives on the school
board and the city council respectively during' the past year. Two delegates to the B. C. Federation of Labor
to be held in Victoria on January 22
were appointed. Messrs. Grant and
Kerr being elected. The question of
buying a new coal scuttle was also
raised, the old one having disappeared from the hall. Trustee Stoney
pointed out that as the hall would
shortly ba passing out of their hands,
it might be good economy to postpone
the purchase' until this took place,
and to make suitable arrangements
at that date. With this the coal scuttle dropped.

was little rest for King George arnli
Queen Mary today. The announcement that bis majesty was determined to show hls appreciation of

for the big personages, ahd the general subject discussed was the wonders of yesterday. King George'.;
liberal money gift and pardon for
political prisoners, and the proposed
changing of tbe government seat
were the topics. The paity was
unique in that the native potentates
do not as a rule look favorably upon
this form of entertainment for
women. Today, however, there wa3
a big muster of high caste PurJaa
ladies. Queen Mary made herscif

hear from License Inspector Brad
sbaw's report tbat on the who.e
these hotels had been well conducted during the past year, but most ot
them needed enlarging and improving. "One ot tbe enteriens of 3
good town are its hotels, and oura
ure npt as good as tbey should be."
Mayor Lee and Commissioner Gilchrist were piesent to hear the in

convictions under the Liquor act cf
It'lt). Two of these were against
hotelkceieis, two against bartenders,
two against persons tending bar
without a license, and seven against
pei sons telling liquor without a
license. Por tbe rest the law relating
to the saie of li.iuor during prohibited hours had, on the whole, been
well observed. The large number ol
cases 'of drunkenness dealt with in
the police court the Inspector attributed to bottle drinking and not
to drinking at tbe bar.

bartenders' licenses were then confirmed by the board, and existing
hotel licences wete lenewed for the

"Dear Little Wife,���You have been
a good little wife, but If I don't get
to see you any more on this earth I
have told you where I want to be
burled at Pleasant Hill. Now, sweat-
heart, do as I tell you.    Bye-bye."
This waa written at 9 o'clock Tuesday morning. Evidently young Henderson's turn with the pencil had
gone, but Jt came back to his hands
again and then be wrote:
"We have to fan with our coats to

Similar to the thoughts entertained
by young Henderson were those reflected I by Enrin Smith in the note,
he left his wiffc, only  blacker were[
his hopes, lf that were possible.   He
wrote:

for the reason that with every pay
ment of annuity is returned a portion I
cf the purchase money together with I
compound Interest at 4 per cent. If
the annuitant liven the average num-j
ber ot years he may be expected to
live according to mortality experience, he will receive back all that
he paid in as w^ll as the inteiest
thereon. But this is not all. for shouM
he survive this expectation the annuity will not cease, but will go on
until his death. It seems paradoxical
that a man can use his principal
without his income becoming less,
but this is made possible under thc
annuities  system.
The age of five is the earliest age
at. which payments for the purchase
of ani annuity may be begun, and the
age of 55 bas been fixed as the earliest age at which, except for Invalidity
or disability, an annuity may begin,
but the longer it is deferred the
larger, of course, wlll be the amount
received. For example, the payment
of $1 a week by a man of 25 until
he In 55, would give him an annuity
from the latter age of $258.28, payable quarterly; wliile if he continued
paying untll he was 60, his annuity
would be $397.36. In either case, if
he died before the date fixed for the
annuity to begin all bis payments
with compound interest at 3 per cent.
would be refunded to his legal representatives. For a slightly increased
payment the annuity would be guaranteed for ten years certain, or for
life, whichever should be the longer.
Everyone should apply for informa-
tion in regard to this most provident i
system of saving���a system which ir |
adopted will bring as its reward an
oM age of comfort, happiness and i
dignity. Literature descriptive of its
features, and tables showing fhe cost
on different plans, may he obtained

Interesting Record of Proa/ess of International   Exposition.
San Francisco, Dec. 13.���Frederick
James Volney Skiff, director of the
Field Columbian Museum at Chicago
for the past fourteen years, member
of the Legion of Honor of France and
holder of a score of Foreign decorations, has accepted the appointment of
director-in-chlef of foreign and domestic Participation ln the Panama-Pacific International exposition which 's
to be held ln San Francisco in 1915.
On receiving Mr. Skiff's acceptance of
tbe important office, President
Charles C. Moore of the Exposition
company expressed his gratification
and declared tbat Mr. Skiff's wide experience in exposition affairs wlll be
of the greatest value to the men wbo
are planning the great project. ,
Mr. Skiff is known the world over
by reason of his activities at tbe various expositions that bave been held
ln this country and Europe. He iB a
native of Chlcopee, Mass., and is 60
years of age. He was formerly a
newspaperman, having served on tbe
leading newspapers of the U. 8.
in responsible capacities. He was also a member of the Colorado Legislature and subsequently served as a
commissioner of immigration and statistics for that state. He is considered one of the best Informed men on
expositions on this continent. It was
largely through hls efforts that the
St. Louts Exposition was made a success. The flrst Important work that
Mr. Skiff took up on accepting the appointment offered him by the exposition directors was a Journey to Washington, D. 0. to consult with the Federal officials relative to government
participation ln the coming 1915 exposition and also to discuss the lm-
tortance of Immediately Inviting for- '
cten nations to participate. Mr. Skiff
Will immediately take up the great '
work that is before him in San Fran-
ctaeo, I
Kot only has be beeri director of ���
the Field Museum of Natural History
since its Inception ln '94, but he is a '
doctor of laws of the Washington, unl-,
verslty of St. Louis, doctor of laws of
the  George   Washington    University,!
Washington, D. C, and master of arts '
of the Colorado College.   He was na-'
tional  commissioner  of  the   World's |
Columbian Exposition, 1893, and later
chief of dei ai tment   of mining   anl
metallurgy and deputy-gene, al of the
Columbian Exposition of 1893.   He or- ;
ganlzed   the   award    system    of   thr
Nashville Exposition in 1897 and was
direclor-ln-chief of the United  States
Commission at  the  Paris  Exposition
in 1900.   He was commissioner at the
Turin Exposition in 1902. and director
of exhibits at tho University  Exposition at  St. Louis in  1904.      He was
llrst   \ice-presldent   of   the   superior
Jury  of  the  St.   Louis  exposition  of
1901 and member of the board of *_&* !
ministration   universal    congress    of
arts   and   science,   Universal    Exposi- :
tion, Kl. Louis in 1904.
Mr. Skiff received the gold medal
of honor from Germany Iii 1098, and
the bionze medal of merit fiom,
France, commander of tho Order oi' |
Hed Lagle of Germany, and has received the Grand Cross Order of thc ifi
Sacred Treasure from the Japanese

other educational and scientific
bodies. He ls a member of the Board
of Governors of the American Athletic
Union and of the Chicago Club and

Before accepting the position,  Mr.
Skiff   waa   ln   this   city   and   held
lengthy conference with the directors
of the exposition. He outlined the important work that was before the directors, and gave them some sound
advice.    President Moore and his cof-
leag'ues on the Board of Directors of
the Panama-Pacific  International  Exposition  prevailed  upon  Mr.  S'Uff to
consl.ier his appointment as director
of loreign and domestic rarticipatio.i
and  it  was only after a week's consideration   that   Mr.   Skiff    accepted
the high office,   lt is certain that hls
selection  will  be as  pleasing to the
foreign nations as lt is to the govern-1
ment bf the United States. Mr. Skiff's ;
appointment as Commisslcner-General j
of the United States  government   to
the Japanese Exposition  to be  held |
in 1917 is evidence of the regard in
which he is held by the Officials at

LIBRARY FOR THE BLIND.
Worthy Object for Christmas Giving.'
Laat spring a brief article 'on the
Cana ilan Free Library for the BBnd
appeared ln these colums. In that article it was stated that the Library,
then at Markham, Ont, was to be removed to Toronto. The removal has
since taken place, and the C. F. L. B.
now occupies quarters at 105 Annette btreet, Toronto, Ont
The Canadian Free Library tor the
Blind   ls   attempting   to reach   and
benefit all the blind of Canada, but lt
it ls encountering serous obstacles in
the realization of this hope from the
difficulty in securing names and addresses of those without sight, from
the necessity of canvassing ior funds
:  to defray the expenses  of   maintenance.    The   Board   of   Management,
therefore, requests all readers of this
Journal who are acquainted wltb bllnl
persons not now enjoying the benefits '
of the library,to send ln such names J
end addresses to the secretary, S. C. I
Swift, M. A., 8 Washington   avenue, I
Toronto. OnL   It also makes a direct I
appeal to the generous Canadian public lo contribute, at this Joyous season, some small po- tlon of the wealth
with which lt has been blessed during the past year.     All contributions
ahould bo sent to the treasurer, E. W.
Henson, Esq., 37 Balmute street, Toronto, Ont.
It is tbe desire of the C. F. L. B.
to e-siabllsh a printing department for
the purpose of printing Canadian
texts ln embossed type for the use of
the Canadian blind. Tbere is at present no such establishment ln Canada,
with the result that Canadian literature Is practically unavailable to our
sightless citizens. Thirty thousand
dollars are required to secure a sufficient income to make the plan feasible. Less tban a thousand of thii
amount is at present In the treasury
of the C. F. L. B. The library asks
the Canadian people this Christmas
to help it to realize a plan so worthy
of assistance.

formed men ln railway and iramlgra-
tion circles, who state that as the
Canadian Paciflc alone carried nearly
20,000 of these settlers Into the Dominion the number Is probably far
ln excess of 25,000. This, however,1
will be known when the government
returns are compiled for tbis year.
The movement northward Is evi-
dently causing much concern ln the
Western States of the Americanl
Union, for at a banquet tendered last
week to the governors of eight of
these states who were passing
through St. Paul, the keynote of the
speeches was a deploring of the attitude of the United States Government
ln the withdrawal of publlc lands.
Mr. Louis W. Hill of the St. Paul
Association of Commerce, made the
principal speech and declared that
134,801,449 acres ot land bad been
withdrawn from settlement ln the
northwestern states by the federal
authorities.
"Settlers in these states," said Mr.
Hill, "are discouraged by the attitude
of tbe government, and every colonist the American West loses, Canada
gains. The real reason: of the unprecedented emigration to Canada is the
uncertainty of the government's policy and the placing of the United
States seal on the lx?st land in the
west.
"In Idaho alone, 55 per cent of the
area of the state has been withdrawn
from settlement. What would the
citizens of New York or Illinois say
if 55 per cent of the area of their
states were guarded with a government decree and the -people told they
were, not wanted?
"It Is common knowledge In the
west that representatives of the Canadian Government attend all land
drawings to take care of the disappointed cctarJstS end ' K'llde t.'iem
across the border from the flag cf
Washington and Lincoln to the flag
of King George."
Canadian Paciflc officials at Montreal say tbat the ebb of tbe Immigration tide is far later tbls year tha.i
usual. Immigrants from the Eastern
States, as well as fiom the Western,
and hundreds from Great Britain and
Europe are still pouring into tbc
country.      ,

SCHOOL   TEACHERS'   SALARIES.
Tbe question of salaries paid to
school teachers Is one which excites
public interest- In many places in
Hritish Columbia besides New Westminster. A despatch sent out from
Victoria fytetifrdAy refers to the re-
-cent r��igQBubb of three lady teachers hi the public, school of Vernon,
on account of tbeir dissatisfaction
with the salaries tbey received. Can
any despatch that is inaccurate come
from Victoria ? The provincial records are In t^he provincial capita),
and the. despatch states that the rate
of salaries paid in Vernon "ls from
965 to $76 per month, this being
about the'usual pay ln cities of the
second class throughout the province,
with th��, exception of Chilliwack and
Nelson which are somewhat higher.
Of this Bum the provincial government contributes $520 per annum per
teacher, the rest being met from the
local levy.".
What must be regarded from one
viewpoint as somewhat significant in
less night for   tbe   men   entrusted
with Its defence.   -
Why, then, consent to partition?
Wby not reform and strengthen the
Persian government and leave Per-
I eia as a buffer state between the two
I great powers? The answer lies on
I the surface. Britain knows that Or-
{ many is bitterly hostile to France and
to her, and that there may be an outbreak of war on the continent any
day ln which Prance, Russia and Britain would be called cn to resist an
attack by Germany, Austria-Hungary
and Italy. World politics have drifted
into such a dangerous condition that
the members of the triple entente
must stand together because of the
ever-present menace of the triple alliance.
Russia wants Northern Persia. Britain does not wish to offend Russia,
the ally of her own friend, France,
by standing in the way of the partition upon which the Russians have
set their heart. And so Persia, one
of the most ancient of Empires, passes, as many of the feeble and small
peoples of Asia have passed during
the last century, into the vast systems of Russia and Britain.
. It will be with heaviness of heart
that Britain wlll take over her share
of Persian territory, for a few years
may see Russia once more a foe instead of a friend, and the Indo-Rus-
slan border one of the most vulnerable points cf Britain's world-girdling
possessions.

Old-time Scottish ministers had no
scruples about preaching the same

story of a beadle who contrived to
give a sly hit at a minister guilty of
thia practice. As they were leating
the church the minister obsei'vep

though he had triumphed over 'some
of tbe parishioners with whom h$
had conversed. He asked tlie cause]

A general meeting of the senior
.amateur association footballers bas
been called for tonight. Members of
the executive and team, and all supporters are Invited to attend in
llyall'a drug store, where the question of a smoking concert to be given
by tbe club will be discussed. The
plans for this celebration are already well under way, and it is expected that tonight a good program
will be drawn up and final steps
taken to ensure a splendid entertainment on the night to be chosen by
the meeting. j
At the same time the team to play
tbe' Thistles am Saturday will be
selected. .
The senior amateurs  will play at'
home on  tbe  next three Saturdays. I
On Dc-cetnber 16 they will meet the
Thistles.    The second match will be ;
played against the 72nd Highlanders,
And the    third,    on    December    30,,
against the V. A. C.   All these games '
are part of  the Vancouver District
league schedule.
Tbe senior amateurs have so far
failed in their efforts to secure a
match for Christmas or New Year's
Day. However, there is Just a chance
that Cedar Cottage will be able to
ghe them a game on the latter day.
At an association football league
meeting held on Tuesday night two
Players were suspended for fighting
mid one severely censured for the
fame trouble. The Incident that gav.j
rise to these penalties occurred ln
the match between Coquitlam and the
U. C. E. K. The two men suspended
were Mackenzie, of the Coquitlam
team, and Davidson, of tbe B. C. E.
H. Marker, of the B. C. E. It., was
the man reprimanded.
The Vancouver ice hockey rink is
almost completed. Provision of accommodation for the spectators ia

Panama Canal
There Is no doubt that on the completion of the Panama Canal there will probably betwenty times aa
much shipping from Vancouver. It is a fact the Dominion Government intends to spend $1,000,000
on the Fraser River by dredging; also if is under contemplation to dredge tbe North Arm.
Can you conceive what this waterfront then will he worth? Make no mistake; get ln and buy some

Trackage
The B. C. E. Railway line is now within flve minutes' walk from the property, which also makes it

four or five years, $500 to $1000 for front foot, as it is right ut the door of Vancouver���only thirty
minutes from the centre of the town.
Under Cultivation
This property has been under cultivation for over thirty years. Nearly all under crop and timothy. In

Another member ol the old sefibol
defended the authenticity of tV Bible,
in the person of Kev. A, B. Simpsjn,
D.D., of New York, who gave an address on "The Bible in the Light of
Modern Thought," at the evening session of tbe Christian and Missionary
Alliance Conference, at the Central
l'lesbyteriun church. Toronto. Ik
made the emphatic declaration tha',
the Bible, far from having boen shaken in its supreme position by seien-
tflc enquiry or higher criticism, had
been conflmed by archaeological discoveries, The final issue, however,
was not tho Bible, but the Christ of
the Bible, and he made a passionate
appeal for the steadfast maintenance
of the living Christ in tlie hearts and
minds of the people.
Ur.   Simpson   began    by   exposing
Darwin's system of the evolution of ,
man, showing that Professor Wallace, |
Darwin's   collaborator,   and   Darwin s
son  had  both  denied  the   Darwinian
theory,  and  he  quoted   Lord   Kelvin, i
who said,   "All living beings   depenJ
on one Creator and  Ruler."    Huxley,
too,  bad  said  tliat   the present  state
of   knowledge  furnished   no   link   between lire and non-life. I
The doctor reviewed the critical
theories, pointing out their origin in
the birth of French nationalism.
Archaeological discoveries, he said,
liad refuted man} of tbe arguments
of the higher critics, but the best
answer to higher criticism was the
fact that it proved too much; it built
up hypotheses wliich were harder to
believe than the authenticity of the
Hible. On the question whether the
Bible had vindicated Itself or not, Dr. I
Simpson said that he could show how
God had traced tbe ethnic evolution
Ot the world, and how lie had pro-'

chief witness for the Bible, however,
was Christ. ]
The Afternoon Session. I
Dr. R. J. Zimmerman presided and I
conducted tho opening devotional ex-j
erciass at the afternoon session. Pas-1
tor F. E. Marsh, of Bristol, Kngland,;
discussed "The Clamant   Need of tho |
Times."   This   needs,   he said,   was
the  recognition   of   the   person    and
work of the Holy Spirit.    He emrlia-
sizrd tho Personality and Deity ofthe
Holy Spirit.
Rev. A. E. Thompson, chairman of
the Palestine mission of the alliance,
spoke on "Palestine and Its Problems." He referred in succession to
tbe political problem, the economic
problem and *he Jewish problem,
and then dwelt in' particular with the
g"prntic land comrllex I'prollfam /of
missionary work in the Holy Land.
There was no heathenism, no idolatry
to face in Palestine, as in most other
mission fields, he said, but there was
a. serious problem in the nominal but
lifeless ancient Christian sects.
