in  the  Past  More  Befitting  Schoolboy Than  Public  Man.
Mayor Lee has evidently tried to misinterpret  and   misconstrue   every
thing   I   have  said  or done. Im
I was working in building up the city while he (Lee) was studying elocution   in   some   American  college.
If the mayor had not spent so much time trying to get even with "that
other fellow," he might have had more time to attend to the city's affairs.
I am just as willing as Mr. Lee to have things done in thc open, but
I am not going to do one thing and ssy another.
The main avenue to Burnaby is a disgrace to the city.
(Extracts from T. J. Trapp's speech at  the opera house last  night I
In delivering tke finest speech of a long career, largely devoted to the
betterment and advancement of Westminster, T. J, Trapp. candidate for
the mayoralty, for nearly two hours held a packed audience at the opera
house last night, his auditors sitting still, all attention, while the speaker
led to a telling point or a striking indictment of Mayor Lee and his administration of the city's affairs, applauding vigorously when tlie climax wai
reached, and occasionally relaxing the tension while boisterously appreciating tlie line hits of humor with which the popular candidate sandwiched his
ahle and forceful address.
It cannot he denied that Mayor Lee is the more fluent and dramatic
sieaker, but Mr. Trapp's homely illustrations and vigorous presentation of
liis plea for public support more than made up for any advantage his opponent might have because of deep study in the aits and wiles of politicians.    T. J. Trapp appealed to the people,  John  A.   Lee  to  a  theatrical
audience.
Mr. Trapp's reception may be summed up in the word "Immense."

He gave Mayor Lee a bad few moments when criticizing his criticism
of the R. A. k I. society, "iiecause

around saying that Mayor Lee is after
the directors of the It. A. A;  1. society,
and   is   going    to    raise  hell  among
them."
Mr. Trapp broke off here to give a
humorous and effective caricature of i

Speaking of  the  improvement  and

THE QUESTION
To all ih ose, and they were man y. who bad the pleasure of listening
to T. .1. Trapp at the opera house last night, the convincing thought drove
home. Ihat New Westminster had found A MAN. to represent ber interests. His straightforward, honest speech, his criticism of many of the actions of the mayor, his tactful remarks concerning the unfair treatment he
had received during the election at the ban's of .1. A. Lee, through the publication of the Citizen, and by unjust accusations, all tended to show, that
if elected as mayor for the ensuing year, the city of New Westminster can-
i not but henetlt hy having as its chief magistrate, a statesman and a di-
', plomat.
Today the ratepayers of N'ew Westminster have the privilege of choos-
i ing who shall preside over the administration of the city's affairs during
Ithe coming year. We hope that every one will use due deliberation and
! care in making hls or her selection and endeavor to secure the return of
the hest man. Every citizen will need to consider whether Mayor Lee bap
'displayed that Intelligence, bones.. a��d real solicitude for New Westminister's interests dining the past twelve months to warrant his being en-
1 trusted with a further lease of power.
We do not see how such an enquiry can be answered in the affirma-

Tliey'are luu ing quite'*&B exciting a
time in Vancouver as we are having
in New Westminster over the mayoralty contest. Mr. Alexander Morrison.
���who is opposing Mayor Taylor, hud au
Interesting revelation to make at his
meeting at Mount Pleasant on Tuesday night, anent the weekly paper
���which has been going so strong in:
.���support of Mayor Lee. Speaking of
the Sunday  Mail,  Mr,  Morrison said:
"The man who conducts it asked
me to come to his offlce one day some
time ago," said Mr. Morrison, " and
iifler we threw a few bouquets at
each other and a few things that were
not bouquets at the other fellow, he
told mo that he had been thinking of
supporting me ancl added: 'I suppose
there will be a little advertising.'
"i told him that there would be the
nsual election card."
Some time later he came to me and
said ihat he had received a proposition and that' Mr. Taylor had offered
to buy his paper or give him $1200 to
support   him   during  the  campaign.
"I said: 'How ate you fixed financially?'
"He said, 'Not very well.'
"I sai I, 'Would you like to dispose
of your paper?'
"He said 'Yes.'
"I replied, 'Then sell it to Taylor.' "
Evidently the weekly whose disgraceful cartoon was reproduced in Mayor
Lee's election sheet, dees not pat a
candidate on the back and scratch the
(ace of his opponent for nothing, it
would be interesting to know what
figure was put up by Mayor Lee or
Jiis backers for the highly seasoned
article which appeared in last Sunday's issue of the Mail.
There will be no voting in the city
hall this year, and the polling booth
for people living in tho 'ebn'tre of the
city will be located today in St.
George's hall. The other prilling places
are at the Fire Hall in Sapperton, and
the .water works storehouse in the
west end.
-Te returning officer is .T. Stilwell
Clute, junior, instead of City Clerk
Duncan, who for many years has held
that position in virtue of his offlce.
Mr. Clute's polling clerks are seven in
number, as follows: A. Peele, A. Wintemute, J. B. Rushton, William Pope,
Alexander Ferguson, J, Poigndestre
and M. W. Mint home.
The polls will he open from ft
o'clock in the morning until 7 in tie
evening, and as it is expected that
this year's vote will be th6 heaviest
ever polled in the Koyal City��� it is probable that the results will nol be
known until late tonight.
Although only a day or two has
elapsed since the nominations, Returning Officer Clute stated last night thai
till the ballots had been printed and
everything would be ready by 9
o'clock in the morning for the flrsl
voters.
Provincial  Constable Wilkie Once  Introduced   Motion   to   Exempt   Improvements From Taxation.
An interesting bit of history connected with the single tax system, or
the exemption of improvements from
taxation, was related yesterday by
Provincial Constable O. J. Wilkie. Mr.
Wilkie stated that over twenty years
ago, when he was a member of the
Langley council, he brought in a motion to exempt all impro\ements from
taxation. The motion was seconded
by Joseph Houston, probably the first
white man, with tlie exception of the
employees of the Hudson's Hay company, to come down the Fraser river.
So far as Mr. Wilkie was aware,
that was the lirst time the question of
exempting improvements from taxation was ever brought up in British
Columbia.
ITALIAN    BANKER    GONE.
New York, Jan. 11 ���A cordon of
policemen this morning stood guard
outside the closed Eastsldfi banking
house of Cleto Sciandon, as the result of a demonstration last night by
several hundred frantic foreigners who
had placed thelr savings on deposit
lt was. feared that an attempt would
be made to blow up the building. The
banker has been missing, the police
say. since Monday afternoon, lie had
heen in business for five years, and
had won the confidence of the uptown
Italian colony, until his depositors
numbered more than 3500.

Pert Townsend.. Jan. 11.���The lire

American steamer Northwestern for
carrying last October from Nome to
Seattle twenty-five passengers in excess of the number allowed by her
current certificate of inspection, has
Been reduced to $200, according to information received here today by the

The Northwestern was the last
steamer to leave Nome and in the application to the department for a remittance of ihe fine her owners represented that the twenty-five passengers
were without sufficient means to carry
ihem through the long winter an 1
���would have been a burden on the community; and that the captain of the
eteamer applied to the customs 'officials for a permit to carry the excess
.number, th.e local insj ectors being

People  Are  Buying  Cheaper  Books���
Deny   Religious   Decline.
New York, Jan. 10.���The old family
Rible has ceased to be a good seller,
it was learned today. Nowadays people will not spend the money for It.
When they buy Bibles they get paper
or cloth-covered ones that sell for IT
cents lo %l. Recent generations have
refnsed to pay $1(1 to $1K for the pon-
xlerous old books with the silk markers that used to stand on the center
tables carefully coverd with a doily,
often removed only on special occasions.
Statistics obtained from the records
of  the  American   Bible  society  show
inat there are   1501) fewer big Bibles
sold   a  year   now   than    there    were
.' wenty years ago.
With the time-honored, leather-covered family Bible rapidly on its way
to tbe discard, the question arises:
Are the American people growing less
religious? The officers of the Bible
society say not, and display figures
to show that the Bible Is still the best
seller. Tbey add that the society
sold 100,000 more Bibles this year
than it did last. It is only cheap
paper or cloth-bound Bibles of pocket
sif.e that the world can be charged
with being less religious than formerly.

A small but keenly interested gath-
of lady electors attended the
Knights of Pythias hall yesterday afternoon, when T. .1. Trapp made a
short speech on school board matters,
and the issues in the mayoralty campaign for their special benefit.
Speaking of the schools, be again
went over his policy of expansion ami
improvement, and devoted some time
to the question of a new high scliool,
which, in accordance with the views
expressed by Dr. Robertson when on
a visit here, he had come to believe
should be a ten-roomed building, with
an auditorium, and this is In all probability whal the school board of 1911
will ask the people for early In ihe
session.
On the question of the location, he
said that notwithstanding the divergent views wllich had been expressed
on this matter, he still believed that
Tipperary was tlie Ideal site, from the
point of view of convenience and also
of economy.
Last time the bylaw
 rwas put before
nrcssiii" tbe meeting, which he did in the electorate, he said, it was found
hi. besl platform manner, lie began impossible to secure the money for
bv denying a rumor which, he said, the erection of a building, In view ot

lie also pointed out that the grant
from the crown gave the city Tipperary "for [,ark and school purposes."
I'assing from school board matters
to matters more directly bearing on
Ihe mayoralty campaign, Mr. Trapp
spoke of the necessity of making some
move in the direction of the segregation of Oriental school children, his
remarks in ibis connection meeting
with warm approval fiom his audience.
On the question of open ami closed
meetings, Mr. Trapp explained his position   moie clearly  than   be  has yet
done at  any previous meetings.    Ile
quite agreed with the policy .>t holding meetings of a  business nature in
public,  but   it  was  necessary  to  have

Today will decide who will be the
mayor of Xew Westminster for the
next twelve months. The election was
the sole topic of conversation on the
street yesterday and on every street
corner there was a hot argument going on respecting the merits of the
two candidates for mayor.
Jn the general interest that this contest has aroused, the election of aldermen, which is almost, if not quite, as
important as the mayoralty election,
seems to have been almost lost sight
of.
Mark Ballots Sparingly.
In some cases, of course, men were
comparing    the   different    aldermanic
Candidates,    It Is a certainty that few
electors   will   vote   lor   seven   catuii-
dates.    The labor men are making no
secret   of tlieir  intention   to   vole  for
their three nominees only.    As a re-J
suit,  many  business  and  professional I
men,   who   figure   that   three   straight
labor aldermen would be too powerful'
on   the  council,  have  decided  to  vote
for only  three or  fou'' of  the  strongest aspirants.   It is probable the highI
men on the aldermanic ticket will bei
hundreds of votes ahead of the men!
who rank five, six and seven.
The popular impression seems to bei
that   Aid.  Brysoti, Johnston and  Gray,
will be near Ibe top.    Walter Dodd Is
conceded the best chance among the
labor men.
The School Trustees.
Towards ihe school trustee election;
tbe  attitude  of  tbe electors  is  much
the  same.    So  many    features    have
been   introduced   into   the   campaign:
open meetings, labor men and women
that it  Is hard to prophesy what  will
happen] and the only thing known for
sure, is that  five will be elected.    Of
the labor men. R, A. Stoney seems to
be the favorite, and of the new men
H.   I'.   Vidal   is  sure  to  poll   a  large
vote.   The re-election of L. Thornbur
is practically assured.    All three have
declared   themselves   for   open   meetings.
It is impossible to say bow lhe two
ladies will come out. Xo doubt they
will receive the support of all the wo
men voters, but unleBB they get th
votes of a lar. e number of mere men
they do not  stand  much  chance.
The newly elected men will lake of

Mayor Lee then touched on the sub-

and made u significant utterance in
ibis connection: "In the Tut ure 1 pro

Hoy, It  coul 1 be seen that the audi-  deal of barm

Trapp, and during the course of his
speech, be was frequently interrupted.
He paid a tribute to Mr. Trapp for
entering the campaign, If he did not
think thincs were going right, or if he
thought they could be improved on.
In   criticizing   Mayor   Lee's   method
of campaigning, he did not spare that
gentleman.   Ills whole plan seemed to
be a strenuous endeavor to put an estimable  and  honorable  gentleman  in
the wrong;  to attribute to Mr. Trapp
motives every citizen knew be did not.

Mayor Lee did not suhm'.t a word of
proof, but without any foundation, accused the other candidate of being a
tool of certain corporations or Individuals.   He did not discuss civic politics
nt all. and be thought that if the cha'r-
man  had  been very strict, he would

v.in. 'Alio has heen a public servant
for over twenty years; who had been
the life and soul of the El. A. & I.
society, a society ot which all citizens
are proud."
He  could  not  see that  Mr. Trapp
had done anything particularly d'shnn-
orable In allowing his name to go he-
fore the electors.
He made no crlticlHm of Mayor Lee
as an individual, but maintained that
his attitude towards the B. 0. 10. R,
had been unduly antagonistic. "1

In that  respect,    He

lie compared Mayor Lee to a bull In
a china shop, and maintained that Mt
Trapp, coming as  he did  with  more
age and experience at his back, would
make  a  better  and  more diplomatic
mayor.
Unfortunately a great deal of Mr
Kennedy's speech was lost on account
of a wild tumult at  the hack of tne
hall.    Ihe men  there  had  cold  feet,
and let It he known in the world-wide
fashion.
Labor Candidate Speaks.
Walter Dqdd, aldermanic can'idate
ln the labor Interests, then appealed
to the electors for support.    He said
there were only three candidates wbo
were seeking to represent  the  working man on the council, and that this
was not. too many In view of the hurt
that.  70  per  cent,  of  the  population,
paying Tn per cent, of the tares, were
working men.    It had bem sail thnt.
there were too many of tliem. bit he
noticed there was no criticism of tie
fact   that   four    real    estate   agents
so'"Tht elfictlin.'
He desired to correct the Impression that labor Interests wpt <v rose I
to capital. All thev wanted was a
more equal distribution of wealth. If
elected, he would try to ferve the
city's Interests with fairness to all
parties.
Peter Byrne whose large experience in
Burnaby municipal affiairs has won him the
confidence of the ratepayers, has consented
to accept agafh nomination for the reeveship.
He stands on his record for far-seeing
and progressive administration, together
with recognized efficiency and honesty, and
a practical knowledge of detail in every
department.
His policy is a continuation of that already adopted by him for the further de-
velopment of transportation facilities, roads,
water supply, and all things necessary to
induce rapid settlement of the district,
including the improvement by the government of the Fraser river for shipping.
ln order to manage in a satisfactory
way questions of expenditure and control,
he is in favor of a two-year term for councillors, one half to seek re-election each year
on lines similar to the school board method.
His motto te * 'Efficiency
with Economy "

GENERAL AGENCY   TRANSATANTIC  STEAM8HIP LINES.
Berlin, Jan. 11.���Count Krnest Re-
tentlow, the foremost German naval
expert, has given the following expression of opinion on the use of airships and (lying machines in maritime
warfare:
At sea, as on land, at present, at
any rate, the chief work performed
both by airships and flying machines
will be that of roconnoitering, and it
is necessary to emphasize the enor-'
mous importance of aerial scouting at
sea. The importance of this innovation is quite clear to every thoughtful man who must understand how
necessary it is to llie coiii'inanding admiral of a lleet that he should receive
news of the enemy's position by
means of airship Hying machine,
which even his fastest cruisers could
not send to him. owing to their more
limited  field of activity.
Hitherto it appears that the airship, and especially the Zeppelin type
of airship, is more suitable than the
(lying machine for scouting work at
sea, provided that these airships be
capable of remaining aloft under unfavorable weather conditions. Provided this condition be fulfilled, the advantage of the airship would be that
it can remain longer in the air than
the flying machine and perhaps that
it can rise to a high elevation more
rapidly to withdraw from the danger
zone, On the other hand, the aeroplane has a great speed, which will
never  be  attained   by   any  airship.
In view of these different qualities,
we may assume that both airships
and flying machines would be useful
in naval'warfare. Scouting by (lying
machine would, for instance be of
great advantage with Heligoland as a
basis, because in a short time one or
more flying machines could pass over
a considerable part of that area of the
North Sea wliich would have to be
searched for hostile ships. The fundamental difference between the work
of the airship and the work of the'
aeroplane would be that the airship
could follow the enemy with its own
communication with the basis ashore
could be maintained by one or more
Hying machines, acting as message-
! bearers.
Not Invulnerable.
Regarding the danger to which all
shins and Hying machines would b?
exposed, French experts believe that
Hying machines, in consequence of
their small size and high sj eed, are
almost invulnerable, though that appears to be an exaggeration, ami
could only apply in the hours of dusk
and darkness. The opinion frequently
expressed that both Hying machines
and airships are invulnerable so long
as their position is Immediately above
a ship, would only hold good as long
as there Is only one ship in question.
As soon as there is more than one
ship the other one could always train
her aerial guns at such an angle as to
aim at the airship or flying machine,
without endangering tfiP ship beneath
It. The flying machine i-i protected
primarily by its own speed, while the
airship is protected by its rapid
change of altitude.
As a general rule, the airship will
be obliged to remain at as great a distance as possible from the enemy.
Otherwise its destruction will he
rapid. But as the airship will generally catch sight of the battleships before the battleships got a glimpse of
the airship, tbe latter will be able to
regulate its movements according to
the necessities of the situation. On
the other hand, If the airship were
ever surprised nnd suddenly found itself In the vicinity of the floating
enemy   Its   position   would   be   imme
diately very dangerous, because under the most favorable circumstances
its speed would not be considerably
greater than that of ti maritime warship. The flying machine need not
take the same precaution because it
will appear in large numbers, and its
success will depend chiefly on the result of some quick daring dash.
Can    Risk    More.
The absolute value of the aeroplane
is considerably less than that of the
airship, and the possibility of supplying its loss is much greater, so that
there would be less need for prudence
and caution in handling a Hying machine than in handling an airship.
That does nol mean that an airship
must lie prudent above everything,
but its commander will have lo judge
whether tlie greater advantage is to
be gained by discretion or by daring.
What I mean to point out is thai lhe
aeroplane can be risked more easily
than  the airship.
Regarding the prospects of dropping
explosives out of lhe air. it must be
admitted that the ilea ha.s something
very attractive,, ami it is certainly
quite possible that a large proportion
of successful aims could be attained.
It must be remembered, however, thai
an airship would not be able to drop
heavy   projectiles   with    great    pene
trating power, but tbe lightest possible explosives, which would not havo
great penetrating nor destructive
power, but which would operate on
striking their target. Experience
teaches us that such explosives could
work great destruction in the immediate vicinity of the spot on which
they fell. They could for Instance,
penetrate one.deek, but not two decks
so that the efficiency of the multili-
ated warship would probably remain
undiminished.
The   danger   of destruction of gun
turrets   or   conning  towers   could   he
avoided by thicker armor platin.
without unduly increasing the weight
of tliose effective parts. It wouhi i
another matter if progress in th,. co-
st ruction of airships and aeroplanes
subsequently enabled them to carry
really considerable quantities of verv
destructive explosives with them.
Altogether, we may se.v that   it |.
| possible the aerial attack with expi
sives  must  already   be   regarded
dangerous, but it is dangerous i
I phesy for this reason the abolition ol
maritime   navies,    or   to   draw
far-reaching conclusions.

Victoria, .lan.  11.���Reciprocity  with

N. Y. Exchanges as Result Are Short
and   Situation   Causes   Dismay.
New   York,   Jan.   11.���"Hello,    I'm'
married!"    The wires that lead to tne
general offices of the telephone company have been busy during the last!
two   days   repeating   this  message   to
the operating department.    Some 200 |
"hello" girls have entered matrimony
since   Saturday,   and   the    remaining
7000   operators   at   their  boards   are
wild-eyed.
The company last  week announced j
an increase in wages for the misses of:
tho wire, and also a reduction of the j
day's work from nine hours to eight,
to go  into effect at once.      But the
nunc toward bliss by the 200 girls has
made it Impossible for the companv
to make the cut in hours at once.
By re lucing the working day of all
operators one hour the company
would find itself handicapped by a
loss of 7200 hours. This was foreseen
when the promise of the cut was
made, and an extra force of girls was
put to work learning operating, but
the company did not count on Dail
Cupid  taking a  hand.
When tlie wires began to hum with
the work of the mischievous little
sprite yesterday, the officers threw up
their hands in dismay. Seven thousand and two hundred hours time lost,
and only partially covered by new
girls, owing to inexperience, and then
tlie stampede to tlie altar by so many
of the triel and trusted���thc blow-
was too much. A proclamation was
issued  that  the  cut  in   hours  would
have to be postponed for a'few weeks
until the girls oould be taught in the
company school to till the places left
vacant by the elopers.
The girls who stuck to their posts,
spurning the allurements of love, were
wrought up toda>; when the news
reached them. They had just counted
on that cut in hours, and now the cut
would have to wait for a lot of stupid
new girls to become real operators, lt
was just terrible!
