A ineeting of the creditors of Mr.
E. J. Fadtr was called yesterday
afternoon by Mr. J. E .Allen, who is
possessed of a power of attorney to
act ter the absent debtor. The affairs

Commissioner    Rees    Returns    After
Twenty Years���Gives Address on
His  Missionary Wanderings
Commissioner Hees, leader of tlie
Solvation Army In Canada, was iu
New Westminster last night after au
v.hsence of over twenty years, he said,
and addressed a special meeting ol
members of the Army. The weather
operated against the assemblage
of a very large gathering, but the
���ommlsstoner nevertheless had a good
a.ni lence. .
Speaking of the missionary travels
which ho took up when he left this
country twenty years ago. Mr. Rees
told many Interesting tales of hard-
bliip and courage, ot disappointment
nnd suceess��exi,erienced in the midst
of Africa. The occasion of the awa-
1.enlng of missionary activity on that
loutinent, he said, was the publish.,
ing of Dr. Stanley's "Darkest Africa,"
which brought home to the civilized
world the fact that out of a popula-
lion of 240,000,000 souls, there- were
barely 28,000,000 who had even heard
.the word "salvation." It was at that
time, tbat he himself was sent out,
and for years he travelled through
the wilds of that dark continent. He
penetrated three or four thousand
miles into the very heart of the coun-
.try accompanied only by a Salvation
Army officer armed with a concertina.
That same musical Instrument, he related, had lost him his first congrega-1
.tlun of Savages, who fled ut a sudden I
note that Issued by mischance from
it. He told how at times he had
been as long as seven months at a '
stretch without having seen clvlliza- j
.Uon or eaten a morsel of white man's ,
food. Hut success had attended his
���cflorts. and In this connection the
commissioner told a wonderful story
of his invasion of tho territory of tha
most warlike chief of the Zulus.
The chief luy very 111, the story ran,
and sent for a Dutch farmer to come
And heal him. Mr. Rees himself, however, was living with the farmer at
the time, and he refused to let him
i;o to the chief unless the missionary
was admitted also. After some days
of hesitation the fear of death over
bore the chief's resolution, and behold
tbe missionary of tbe Salvation Army
and the bumble Boer entering the encampment of the Zulu tribe, armed
with nothing but a large zinc bath.
Into this they plunged the suffering
chief, and heated tbe water, until the
attack of Influenza, with which he was
afflicted, was boiled out of him. From
that cure dated tbe establishment of
one of the most successful missions
in Zululand, claimed the old missionary.
The silver band from Vancouver
vas in attendance and played selections with tremendous good-will. The
local army under Captain McLean
elso offered their chief In Canada a
very hearty welcome, for which he
thanked them very sincerely.
by the attorney that Mr. Fader's property in this country was worth
roughly $92,000, while the debts
amounted to a figure in tbe neighborhood of $ti5,000.
As it is said that Mr. Allen has the
lower to sell this property for the
liquidation of the debts, three trustee*,
were appointed by the meeting to take
charge of the matter in connection
with Mr. Allen. Two of these trustees
were Mr. J. -D. itennie, of the West-
mtnstfT Trust company, and Mr. E. C.
Traves, of Pat Bums & Co.
Lady   Correspondent  Writes   Regard
Ing Women's Reading F.oom In
Carnegie   Library.
Tbe Dally News has received tha
fallowing letter, with a request that
it be published in these columns:
To the City Council���Gentlemen.
May I ask by whose authority the
women's public reading room of the
Carnegie Public Library is, and has
been all these past months, closed to
its purpose?
May I ask by whose authority,
wben the women enter that' room to
read they face bare, empty tables?
Not a tetter, not one word on those
tables to read! Nothing; big,, speechless silent tables staring them in the
face. ��� i vd8:|#U
Who authorized this literature of
the nothingness for the women of New
Westminster in place of the magazines and journals usually on such
tables? May I ask that all the
Christmas magazines and Journals of
January 1912. when they arrive, be
restored to their place on the tables
of tbe Ladles' Publlc reading-room?
A number of each of the newspapers
would be acceptable In the ladles'
room. The singles ones earning their
living cannot afford always to pur
chase thoiri. The large general reading room ts usually full of men, and
no chance for the women to get hold
of a paper.
A plain clothes detective could settle tbe emergency of the thief who
sometimes cuts out articles and takes
the whole book.
Rector Is Better.
Vancouver, Dec. 6.���An encouraging report was received today from
Rev. H. G. Fynes-Cllnton, rector ot
St. James' church, Vancouver, who
has been seriously ill at St. Luke's
Home. Although still weak, his condition ls much Improved and he If

Further particulars of the new hotel
which Mr. A. Q. Peters ot the Premier
hotel is going to build, show that the
new house will have three stories
and an attic with 66 rooms, and not
two stories and 166 rooms as previously announced. The contract for'
tbe excavation and foundations has
been let to Messrs. Smith and Whitaker, and the work will be pushed
through as quickly as possible according to Mr. Peters' statement.
It was only a little time ago, that
Mr. Peters sold the Premier hotel
for f66,000, and It, ts now announced,
that he has paid $17,000 tor the site
of his new building.

eighth floor.
Both men breakfasted well and
Joked with their Jailer. At half-past
nine the lock on the cuortroom door
was reinforced by a great bar of oak,
six Inches wide and extending clear
across the double doors. This was
taken down from time to time to admit persons who could show special
permission to enter the room.
James B. McNamara.
John D. Fredericks, dstiict attorney,
read the written concession of James
Hoyd McNamara, which ls the ��� full
name of the older of the prisoners.
Tbe reading waa received in silence.
The indictment of the prisoner for
the murder of Charles J. Haggerty, to
which McNamara pleaded guilty, was
then read, and tbe prisoner was asked
in the ordinary course if he had anything to say. "1 bave not," he said.
"Have you anything to say, prisoner?"
asked tbe lustiict attorney. This
irrelevance was rebuked by the attorney and the case proceeded.
"The defendant will arise," aaid
Judge Bordwell, who then commented
upon McNamaras declaration that he
did not intend to destroy life.
"The circumstances are against
you in malting the statement," he said
"A man who will place sixteen sticks
of dynamite in a place where -you, as
a printer, knew that gas was burning
in the building, and knew that many
men were toiling, must have been a
murderer at heart and undeserving at
Eor reasons other than such a plea
of nom-intent, Judge Bordwell declared he would impose the penalty
of imprisonment for life.
John J. Sentenced.
John J. McNamara was taken next
and .to him the Llewelyn Iron Works
indictment was xead by the judge. He
! said be had nothing to say. District
' Attorney Fredericks,    however,    said
'that, as in the other case, the plea
j of guilty  merited  consideration  and
I pleaded that the defendant be given
"a few years of freedom at the end
of his life."    %
Judge Bordwell declared that the
strictures against James B. McNamara would also apply to John. Clemency, he declared, was not because of
merit as to Intent. He then imposed a sentence at fifteen years In
San Quentin penitentiary, one year
more than ted been predicted.
The Murder's Confession.
Junes B. MeNamara's brief confession, penned by his own hand and
bearing man yev-ldences of a man little skilled ln letters, waa made public today.   It bi as follows:
"I. Janes B. McNamara, defendant
in the case of thc People, (having heretofore pleaded guOty to Uie crime of
murder, desire to make this statement
of fact (and this Is the truth):
"On the night of September 30,1910,
at 6:46 p.m., I placed in Ink Alley, a
portion of the Times building, a suit
case containing sixteen sticks of 80
per cent dynamite, ant to explode at
1 o'ciock the next morning. It waa
the intention to Injure the building
and scare the owner, I did not Intend
to take tbe life of anyone. I sincerely regret that these unfortunate
men lost their lives. If the giving of
life would bring them back, I would
gladly give It. In fact, on pleading
guilty to murder in the first degree.
I have placed my life In the hands pf
the state.

Shanghai, Dec. 5���China is waiting ter her strong man. Tbe hour is
approaching tke genius of the
awakening nation looks for the man.
Each day brings keener apprehension that the Empire is drifting into
a political chaos. The revolutionary
juntas here are now marking time
awaiting the arrival of Dr. Sun Yat
Sen, who Is expected at any time. It
is hoped that he may prove to be the
leader whom every one is seeking. If
he can line up the various revolutionary chiefB and unify the movement, a solution of China's troubles
may be hoped for. There are dissensions everywhere among the rebels,
especially at the Wu Chang and Nanking headquarters. The fall of Han
Yang last week proves to have been
due entirely to wholesale desertions
of rebel troops enrolled in the Hunan
Some say that the soldiers were
bought by Yuen Shi Kal. but moat
persons attribute the desertions to
the old time jealousy between the people of Hunan and Hupeh.
The deseit'.ons would probably hive
been prevented had a strong leader
been in command.
Government Collapse Predicted.
The complete collapse of the Imperial government Is regarded here
as imminent and there is as yet nothing stable to take its place. The revolutionists thus far have been incap-

the Toronto  Mail  and   Empire.    Becoming  convinced  that   the  retailers
were charging unfair prices, and that
they  were    combining    to    keep up
prices, he boldly attacked    them   by
constituting himself a  market.      He
sent into the country and  bought a
number of carloads of potatoes from
the growers at 6!) cents a bushel, and
after paying iucidental charges, was
able to sell them at 75 cents.   At that
time    the  retailers    in   Indianapolis
were charging $1.60 a bushel. Wheu
Mayor Shank began to cut prices the
dealers   immediately   reduced   theirs
to a dollar a bushel, but raised them
again as soon as the mayor's supply
was exhausted.   Then his Worship invaded tbe fruit market, and similarly : ts:J

Paris, Dec. 5.���The aunt of King Alfonso of Spain, ls the latest to give
expression to the spirit of emancipated womanhood. The Temps prints
the particulars of a right royal row
between King Alfonso and his aunt,
Infanta Eulalle, a princess with bold
unconventional views. Tbe Infanta,
who resides ln Paris, received the
following telegram today from King
Alfonso, dated from tbe palace at
Madrid:   ���
"I am astonished to learn from the
paiers tbat you have published a
book under the name of Countess
Avlla. I suppose tbls will cause a
great sensation. I order you to suspend publication until I have taken
cognizance of the contents and given
my permission to publish."
To this telegram Eulalle replied:

I always beld myself aloof, I takj

worthy of the inquisition. I consider

Black  Labor  Is the  Menace There-
White   Population   Falling   Off.       !
This is the year of disappointing
census returns. South Africa is not
only disappointed ut the statistics produced by her census takers���she ih
alaimed. In England, too, the South
African tiRiirps have been much discussed, and no one seems able to derive much satisfaction from them, no
matter how ingeniously he calculates. '
for these figures show that the white
race Ib not Increasing ln South Africa
as rapidly as the blacks. As one
writer says, it is not a question
whether Boer or Briton is to rule
South Africa, it is a question whether
I oth are not to he ruled by the black.
Certainly the blacks are increasing,
nnd a survey of conditions inspires
the belief that they will still moro
mildly increase in the future, since
their chances are constantly improv-
tng through the growth of civilized
ideas in the matter of hygiene. The
case of the white man is not hopeless, however, for the supremacy of
the race can be ensured by a radical
alteration of the labor laws. That ls
to say, If the white race Is to la-
crease, the white men must work as
they work in Canada. They must realize, that there ls no work too rough
ior a white man ta undertake. This,
at least, ls the view put forward by
seveial authorities, and'its reasonableness has not been challenged. I.
The Blacks Gain.
The latest South African census ,
shows that ln the Cape Province the
white population has decreased by
nearly 17,000 in seven years, a percentage decrease of 6.28, while the native population has Increased by
nearly 55,000. In 1004 the white population of the tape formed 24.0G per
cent of the total populatk<i, but today it forms only 22.75 per cent. Comparing the census returns of l'JOl
with those of 1911, lt Ib shown that
throughout United South Africa tha
w.rTle population increased by only
161,000, while the black population
Increased by 621,000. In the Union
today there are only 51.000 male
whites more tnan there were ln 1901,
but there are 336,000 more males ln
the native and colored population.
Wben tt Is remembered that the Cape
Province was settled more than two
centuries ago, and that the figures do
nut relate to Basutoland, Bechuanu-
land or Rhodesia, which ara overwhelmingly black in population, it
Will be seen that the situation Ib OBe
deserving of serious attention on the
part ot tbe South African government.
Great Possibilities Unrealized.
Even a Canadian wlll admit that
South Africa is one ot the greatest
countries in the world. If Germany
had it, and was certain of being able
to retain lt; she would be willing,
probably, to disband ber navy. The
wealth of the country ln minerals and
precious, stones served for a time to
distract atentlon from lta possibilities as a farming, stock-raising and
manufacturing country, but for some
years past these advantages of South
Africa have been generally realised.
The race that is seeking to colonize
South Africa Is the same race that
colonized Canada and the United
States and Australia. The great difference is that white settlers of this
continent hewed out the civilization
for themselves, the whites ln South
Africa are endeavoring to have the
blacks do tbe work for them. Black
labor is cheap labor and It Is Inefficient labor. Th��~poHey~*f introducing Chinese to the Rand was Justified
"Instead of that wben tbe time came for tbem to start tbe wa( Admiral
Togo, wbo bad the fleet of warships at Port Arthur, near China, licked tbe big
Russian flee/ In just thirty-seven minutes. The Russians bad bigger snd better
ships, bnt you see tbe Japanese had Admiral Togo, wbo is one of tbe finest
sea fighters tbe world has ever seen.
"I suppose yon would Uke to know how Togo learned to fight Well, his
family, Including bis father, his grandfather and hla great-grandfather and
away back for hundred of years, bad been fighters. They belonged to s soldier family tn which every boy knew that when he grew np be wonld be a
soldier. When little Heihachlro Togo, who was the third boy of tbe family,
waa bora, his mother took him out to the altar in tbe garden where every
Japanese family says its prayers and, laying tbe baby on the altar, prayed that
be might become a good boy and a brave soldier.
"As aoon as be could toddle Togo began to learn soldiering, and when he
was old enough be was sent te England to study fighting at a famous school.
Be spent three years there. Every one liked the young Japanese lad. Be was
always polite and obliging and bia teachers were pleased with the way ln which
he pegged Into bis books. Be never wonld give np the hardest lesson and be
���ever minded if lessons were bard. Wben be went back to Japan he was
ssade an officer on one of tbe Japanese ships.
"Ui Japan's wnr with China he did brave fighting and served his country
well. Then, when war between Japan and her great strong enemy, Russia,
teemed certain, the emperor said that Togo must be made admiral or commander of the Japanese fleet When the news came that be hart fought with
the Russians and whipped them completely, Japan went wild with Joy. Today,
���eat to tbe emperor, he is tbe most beloved man in Japan, for every Japanese
feelieves that Togo's victory at Port Arthur saved tbeir country from Russia."
on the ground tbat a spply of black
labor could not be counted on. Thc
black wants the woik until ne is a
few dollars ahead, and then he wishes
to retire to the interior and g<t .1
wife or two to labor for him for the
rest of his davs.
Black vs. White Labor.
This fact was recognized by thu
flrst Dutch governor of the Cape of
Good Hope, and he then proposed the
introduction of Chinese labor. Now
that the Chinese have been sent away
the cry again goes up for black labor
or for yellow labor from India. As t
writer in the London Mall savs,
"What would happen in Iw.ncasbire If
the mill owners brought in a tew
hundred thousand Chinese or I.ind us
to work the looms?" This, however,
has been South Africa s policy lot
years as regards labor. Color is
the most desirable qualification for
lhe laborer. It Is claimed by the
employers of labor ln South Africa
that white labor .is too expensive.
Yet the population lives chiefly on
the foodstuffs produced by expensive
white labor thousands of miles away.
If white labor is expensive, it is at
least efficent, honest and Intelligent,
its supply can be counted on. In
England there are enough men living on the verge of abject poverty to
do all the work that ls done in South
Africa or that WIH be done there the
next twenty years.
What Africa Needs.
In tbe Southern States, when there
was an abundance of cheap black
labor, the country made no such pra
gress as it made after ihe war had
made the black labor more expensive, or as it has been making In the
past flve years ln which white labor
has been more largely used. At present the Pass Law, the Workmen's
Compensation Act, and the very system of taxation in South Africa set
a premium on black labor. It is recommended that this effort to discriminate against the white should be
abandoned, and that a vigorous policy of white immigration should be
adopted. Otherwise the industries of
the country will pass wholly into the
hands of the blacks, their numerical
preponderance will increase and in
the end South Africa wlll be classed
with Trinidad and Jamaica Instead of
with Canada and Australia.

Nobody,..these, days, overlooks   the

aome communities the advisability of

within   reasonable   limits,   Industries
should be encouraged and that their
promoters should  on  no account  be

that tliey will ba driven to seek some
other   community   where   such   burdens are not imposed.   It is apparent
that  communities   may  sacrifice  too
much In order to attract Industries,
or they/may load Industries with restrictions that make their profitable
operation    Impossible.      The    continents of Europe and   North America
are dotted with small industrial towns

have been" set  and  the  possibilities
of   growth   carefully   controlled,   by

Canadian exhibitors are Hume Blake,
Crow and Murray. N. W. Clare, of
Preston; Senator Betth Colin Campbell, of Montreal, and In fact most, of
of the Canadian horsemen who usually win the lion's share of the honors
at the Toronto and Montreal horse
shows. From ponies to military
chargers, pretty nearly every sort of
horse bred In this country for which
there ls a classification, Canada ls j
well represented, and in the great
majority of cases by animals breed
in Ontario. Miss Wllks, ot Gait, will
show her trotters and roadsters, but
we can hardly credit the New Voik :
newspaper report that says Mlss;
Wllks will diive her own horses in
the ring, although Mlss Preece, one {
of the most daring of British cros i- '-
country riders, will put the famous
Dunn horses through their paces.
A Daring Woman Rider.
Miss Preece It will be recalled by
those Interested in horse shows, Is
the lady who rode the notorious Merriman at the great Islington show last
summer, and for her performance
was called to the Royal box by Queeu
Mary and complimented on her courage In riding an animal whose temper ls dangerous, and which had leaped the barrier and killed a spectator
only the day previous. The Dunn
horses are expected to be nard nuts
to crack, since they Include a couple
of champions at last year's Olympia
show. Another noted British stud
that will send entries is that of William Foster, of the Mel Valley Stqci; I
Farm, of Moseley. Mr. Foster bred
the four-in-hand* team that Alfred (J.
Vanderbilt paid $15,000 for. This
four was supposed to be the best ever
bred, yet Mr. Foster was able to put
down another four at Olympia the j
year following the sale to Mr. Vander-
i bilt good neotigh to beat the Ameri-
: can millionaire's outfit. After the
show be sold the new team for $11!,-

Military Competitions.
Most interest will centre in the military competitions, and chiefly in the I
officers'  Jumping   contests,   for   the j
i winner of the championship in these
classes is considered to be tbe hero '
' of the   show.      It   is   the   military I
classes that the international rivalry
1 is strongest, and it is in them   that j
��� American pride is most likely to be
humbled.   On the occasion of the first
international  show  in   London  three;
or four years ago the British officers,'
to the astnishment   of the   patriotic
spectators,   were   simply   outclassed,
nearly all  the prizes going to Italy,
France and Holland.    The late King
Edward, it  is said  was   greatly  Impressed by the showing of the foreign
officers, and Interested himself in the
| effort to improve the class   of horse
I used by the English cavalryman.   Al-
| though a breed of horse is not   im-
' proved  in  a year,  nor in  flve yeas,
the. English officers did better at the
next show, but they are still behind
the Continental standard. Stil! further
behind  are  the  Americans,  and  the
international horse shows have served
a   useful   purpose   iu   demonstrating
this inferiority, and in spurring both
British   and   American   officers    forward. ,
The  High School  Horw.
The chief reason for our inferiority j
is that  the  horses  are  trained by  a
different  system   on  the   Continent.'
They are products of what is called
the "high school" method, by whicn
every horse is trained, not only as a
racer is trained, but as a gymnast is
conditioned.    They   are   bitted,   suppled mannered and muscled, taught to
go  forward  backward,  or  to   either I
side by  a pressure   of the knee, to |
stan.l  on  their hind  legs, or to   lie
down. In response to a signal.      To
perfect a horse in.these arts and paces
requires  years  of   attention, in   the
European   armies   the   time   b   not
grudged, but tbe British officer is inclined to regard a horse simply as a I
means of getting from place to place,'
and while a British rider is able to
stick on bis horse as well as anyone,'
he  would  think  the  time  wasted  In
teaching his horse  what   the Continental officers demand.    However, in
the last year or two there has been
a  marked   improvement   in  this   respect, and the present, show is likely
to reveal   a   further   advance   along
these lines.���Mail and Empire.

might claim to be thoroughly representative of all that is best in   the
horsemanship of Europe and the United States,    it happens, however, that
the Italatau cavalry is about the best

Man in the Street Looks on the Army
As National Spirit Embodied.
The recent strained relations between France and Germany have
stirred up people to literary as well
as political activity and two books
liave received some notice. One is by
Mr. Charles Dawharn, a clever Kngiish Journalist who has lived some
years in I'aris. llis title is, "Franco
and the French." To illustrate their
splendid spirit of patriotism he refers
to the military system and says:
"We must recognize, even if we ba
Pacifists���conscious to the full of the
horrors and absurdities of war���
that the military regime has done
this much good to France, that it has
brought home to tlie people the wondrous lesson which we may call "la
charge de la communante."
The Lesson of the Regiment.
"Whenever the man in the street
sees the regiment go by he must recognize it as the embodiment of the
national spirit, the symbol of self-
sacrifice, calling upon him, if need
be, to leave his fireside and his personal affairs to defend the national
soil. He realizes the value of such a
lesson to people given up.as modern
communities are, to an engrossing
commwcilallsm, to an all-absorbing
interest in the accumulation of the
"bien etre" (almighty dollar). He realizes that he is part of a great defensive army which is bound to risk
its life and give its physical and
mental best to the protection oi'lhe
country against the invader. These
things bave an inestimable influence
upon the formaticn of the national
character. They replace Jingoism hv
a tractical jntriotism, anl they :nal:o
would be flghting alongside of France,
while Austria would be operating
with Germany. After a careful review of all the available forces, and
a closely reasoned tactical appreciation, the author is persuaded that in
the event of a conflict between the
two countries France has little to
fear. There is no doubt about the
patriotism of this energetic peopie.
One of the leading Paris papers���
sold more on the street than any
other���La Patrie, has "Organe de la
Defense Nationale" printed below its
name. The spirit of the people is
well exhibited in a recent article in
Je Sals Tout, the well-known magazine, on j "The Qerman , Army,;; ln
which the writer���likening the airmy
of France to an express engine, and
that of Germany to a steam roller���
says; "If bad drivers misunderstood
the signals, Ignored the points, nnd
wrecked lt in the catastrophles of
Sedan and of Metz, our engine ls nut
anew on its wheels, repaired, reinforced, more active and more alert
than ever, always under high pressure. You well know, don't you dear
reader, that our engine, so light an 1
so full of nerve power, is of the kind
that if she does not crush, she
smashes tht ough! Without fear, she
can cross the path' of the German
'roller.' "
Her Military System.
Every young man in France has to
serve for two years, those physically
unfit being Incorporated in the Auxiliary Services. Then for eleven years
they are in the reserve of the active
army, with two periods of instruction
of 23 and 17 days. Then in the territorial army for six years with one
period of nine days, and finally in
the reserve of the territorial army
for six years with one mobilization.
The peace footing of the home army
is 30,000 officers and 630,000 men, and
of colonial troops, 4130 officers and
(10,000 men (of whom 24,000 are
French). The war strength is anywhere from 3.000,000 to 4,000,000.
Military education is very thorough
and extensive. Private schools have
special courses and can Issue certil
cates of suitability for military service, which aid promotion. Then
there are. hesides, various courses,
schools of gymnastics and fencing, of
musketry for infantry, the Normal
School of Musketry, the Cavalry
School at Saumur, the Artillery and
Engineer Scliool, the Superior War
School,  and   finally  a  Center,  under
Victoria, Dec. 5.���The secretary of
the Board of Trade has been notified
that the express rate between Victoria and Vancouver has been restored to 75 cents per hundred pounds
at which it stood prior to September
1. On that date it was raised to $1.50
per hundred pounds, but the Hoard of
Trade took the matter up with tho
Railway Commission, which ordered
the reduction.

hockey map. The immense new rink
on Georgia street, Vancouver, is rapidly nearing completion and ln a few

ruld which the Patricks have mad'}
on Eastern hockey teams has caused
about as big a sensation as did Con
Jones, when by offering fabulous salaries to members of the leading lacrosse aggregations in Eastern Canada, he was enabled to annex the
famous Minto Cup from the local
club. With three teams in the Coast
Hockey League, viz.: New Westminster, Vancouver and Victoria, there is
���every prospect of having the best In
this line of sport. The nucleus for
the respective teams Is about mado
up. and with two exceptions the players sre on the ground ready to commence training. It is understood that
the schedule arranged for the "Big

Vancouver rink. Plans are maturing
for an Eastern trip late in the season, the winner of the B. C. League
challenging the Ottawa team, present
holders of the Stanley Cup. The recent decision of the N. A. H. to limit
the teams to six men Instead of seven
has caused a halt in the work
cf the Coast players as it was decided
to stick to the Old rule of seven
men on a team, but lt Is thought that
they will fall in line with the new
order, thus doing away with the position of rover. Speaking of the proposed cup hunt. Eastern critics say it
will make the most exciting series
since the time Rat Portage Journeyed
towards the rising sun for a crack at
the historic medal. With Con Jones
holding the Minto Cup, the V. A. C.
keeping tab on the Mann trophy, and
the Vancouver Beavers winners of
the Paciflc Coast League baseball
pennant, all It needs now is the Stanley Cup.

"We found," continued the surgeon,
"that the muscles of Wolgast's stomach were in such flne condition that
it was not necessary to cut them, as

Wolgast will be as strong, lf not
stronger than ever after he recovers

Mountain Ash Choir.
One of the finest things about the
Mountain Ash Choir ls their varied
programme. They sing the songs of
all nations, the folk songs, the songs
written by the great masters, waltzes
by the great Strauss, and songs that
describe some happening. Perhaps
in all their varied repertory there ls
not a song that either has not at some
Period of the world appealed to millions of people the world over, or else

it is un lerstood that the enunciation
of this body of men is like the enunciation of one man, a good and perfect elocutionist at that, the cause
for their phenomenal success at the
White House in Washington, before
some celebrated English musical
Judge, or the Langrave of Hesse, Germany, becomes apparent. The trou-
; ble that is found with most male
j choirs, a poor and worn out collection of songs, Is not the trouble with
this organization. Having toured Europe and the United States it can be

The editor of the Canadian Poultry
Review, the people's popular poultry
paper, tells us that this paper has
been greatly enlarged and is filled
with all that pertains to poultry, both
from a practical and a fancy standpoint. ,
Prof. A. G. Gilbert, Manager Dominion Government Poultry Farm, Ottawa, ts still in charge of the Practical
Poultry Department. Rev. J. N. Williams, one of England's most noted
experts, writes interestingly each
month on poultry doings in the Old
Land. Mr. H. S. Babcock, Provi
dence, R. I., is another prominent
writer and breeder on this paper's
regular staff, and there are dozens of
others. Each phase of poultry breeding, poultry exhibiting, etc., is fully
covered and the pages of the Review
are replete with half-tone reproductions from life, of famous birds, plans
of up-to-date houses, utensils, etc.

Changes In ths Partridges of the Canary  Islands.
A remarkable example of tbe effects
of environment and changed conditions of life upon tbe forms of animals Is furnished by a species of partridge living In the Canary islands.
Over 400 years ago the Spaniards introduced tbe red legged partridge from
Europe Into these Islands, and tbe bird
hns continued to flourish there; but, as
recent examination proves, it bas undergone modifications clearly brougbt
about by the conditions under which
it lives.
its back hns turned from russet
color to gray. This looks like protective coloration, since tbe bird passes
its life among gray volcanic rocks.

Varied and Peculiar Animal Life Found
In Its Waters.
Tbe riddle of Uke Baikal. In central Aaja. is similar to thst ot Lake
Tanganyika, ln central Africa, ln
both cases, says tbe Japan Advertiser.
s large body of fresh water remote
from the ocean contains organisms apparently marine. Both lakes, again,
contain a very large number of species
not found elsewhere. Lake Baikal
contains numerous salmon and seals
as well as.three species of herring. It
also contains a few mollnsca of apparently marine forms.
One of tbe most remarkable features
of tbe Iske perhaps ls thst, although It
Is frozen over for about flve months in
tbe year, tbe animal life is extremely
abundant and varied. Tbls may be
partly accounted for perhaps by tbe existence of hot springs.
One of tbe latest attempts to answer
the riddle of Lake Baikal Is that of the
Russian Investigator M. Berg. Of the
thirty-three species of flsb found ln tbe
Iske be finds that fourteen are peculiar
to It, while nineteen bave a wide distribution in Siberia and Europe. Many
of tbeae peculiar species sre without
near relations anywhere. Of the molluscs 00 per cent are peculiar.
M. Berg does not think tbe facts demand the hypothesis tbat tbe lake was
once marine. He believes that lt has
always been fresh and tbnt tbe fauna
peculiar to It bas had a twofold origin.
A part bas originated In tbe lake Itself during tbe long ages of its exist-,
ence. snd the rest ls a portion of tbe
prehistoric fresh water fauna of Siberia, which It bas preserved.

Arizona Relies Indicate a Very An-
'cisnt Civilization.
Still another "oldest city In the
world" bas been discovered. Wben T.
Hewitt Myring found vases ln Peru ln
ruins whicb were said to be 7.000 years
old it was imagined that the remains
of early civilizations bnd been pushed
as far Into antiquity as they would
ever go. But A. Lnfave, a mining engineer, has found the relics of a town
lu an Arizona tableland near Phoenix,
whicb be Insists are ut least 10,000
years old. Tbe buildings are on a level stretch of country wbere neither silt
nor wnsb was possible and yet tbe
ruins were covered with ten feet of
prairie dust which the dlsroverer
claims required ages to accumulate.
The buildings or sandstone show
great architectural skill and ln lbe
walls were found a box of cotton bolls
and n sealed Jar of coru. both well
preserved. Tbe Arizona climate does
not permit tbe growth of cotton In the
present age. .so Mr. Lafave assumes
that sufficient time must have elapsed
since tbe cotton which he found was
grown to hsve wrought a complete
change In tbe character of tbe country.
This period be also gauges ss something like 10.000 years.
He Is satisfied that the ruins are older than those of Nineveh or Babylon.
He believes that tbe race whicb built
this town was possessed of a blgb
civilization from tbe abundance of artistically wrought pottery and tbat It
subsequently was broken np by internal dlssentlons snd possibly degenerated Into the cliff dwelling people.���Chicago Tribune.
Loam Eliminattd by Means ef Perforated Wheelbarrows.
Perforated wheelbarrows were utilized to wash tbe gravel used in con-,
crete construction at Bangor. Me..
says Popular Mechanics. Tbe gravel contained a certain amount of
loam, which It was considered neces-
sary to remove. Ordinary wheelbarrows were practlcslly converted into
sieves by punching holes lu tbe sides
and bottoms, and a water pine was
counected up between the storage
piles and tbe concrete mixer.
Each wheelbnrrow of grovel was
wheeled under the spray betid and
streams of water discharged upon it.
tbe wster aud loam rwslms out
through tbe holes, leaving the clean
gravel to lie wheeled to the mixer. A
spude was used to stir up the load so
as to expose the bottom Inyera to the
cleansing action of the water.
Oil of Cedar Weed.
The demand for oil of i-edar Is very
limited In England. Consul General
Griffiths states thnt It Is used principally In sonpmsklng. The current
market price In London Is 14 to 10
cents per pound when handled In one-
qusrter tbn lots or more. Tlie demand
for cedar wood <fli Is said to be greater
In France and Germany.
Impulse That Moved ths British Un.
eers at Aliwsl.
Tbo Sixteenth lancers, than whoa
tbere Is no more famous regiment Is
tbe British service,' performed a fins
feat at the battle of Allwal, In tht
���Punjab, ln January, 1840.
The gallant Sikhs had thrown them-
selvos into squares and In this formation for a time resisted tbe desperate
charges of the English cavalry. Jqst
as stubbornly as the British Infantry
had resisted tho French curnisslers at
Again and again did the Sixteenth
lancers strive to break through the
masses of the Sikhs, and again and
again scores of saddles were emptied,
and tbe British were beaten back wltb
slaughter. As tbe lancers got close
enough to deliver their thrusts their
weapons would splinter like matchwood upon the stout shields of tbeir
ewsrtby foes. Suddenly an inspiration
came to tbe troopers.
Without receiving any orders to that
effect, but as If controlled by a unanimous Impulse, tbey shifted tbeir lances
to tbe bridle hand and charged In
once more. Tbe Sikhs, entirely unprepared for tbla sudden and masterly
maneuver, received in tbeir bodies instead of on tnelr targets tbe spear
points of tbe horsemen.
Into and through tbe squares swept
the Sixteenth, with lances as crimson
ss their tunics.' Even so. It Is recorded that the resistance was so desperate and sustained tbnt tbe Sikh square
bad to be ridden through again and
yet again before It was finally overcome.���Exchange.
Incident Thst Hsttened the Sueeess ef
Telephones In England.
Following the establishment on a
solid basis of the American telephone
system, work for European exploitation
wus early begun. Tbe results were
hardly encouraging.
Five-eighths of tbe British rights
were purchased for $500 by a Providence mnn. says tbe National Magazine. After working ln London four
months he could not find any one who
wonld put a shilling in the telephone.
An English review said of it: "The
telephone ls little better than a toy.
It amuses the English, but is inferior
to the well established system of air
The victory wns won nt last by Kate
Field, who sang "Kntbleen Mavonr-
neen" over the telephone to Queen
Victoria. The queen wns delighted,
asked Bell lf sbe might buy two telephones, and it was not long before
all England wns interested. An exchange with ten wires was opened in
London, and ln April. 187!). Theodore
Vail sent an order to the factory In
Boston In his terse, characteristic wey.
"Please mak# 100 band telephones for
export trade as early as possible."
In the Italian Alps, on tbe peak of
Monte Rosa, ls the highest telephone
in the world. Strung at tbe order ot
Queen Margherita. It took six years to
complete tbe connection between the
top of the mountain and the queen's
apartments in Rome.
Thsokersy's Mistakes.
Thackeray probably wrote tbe prettiest and mOst legible hand of any distinguished author. But tbe master of
the easieet and moat flexible style In
English Action occasionally made careless and irritating slips. He wrote
"different to," which ia a common and
quite unaccountable mistake, and
"compared to," which is aa bad. No
ene would think of saying or writing
"compare this to that" yet you flnd
"compared to" in print every day in
the week. And he also fell Into tbe
common error of making the surname
plural instead of the prefix���the "Mlss
rotters," fqr Instance, in "The New-
comes." Instead of the "Misses Potter."
Would anybody write the "Mr. Pot-
temr Why should the lsdies be ao
mishandled?���London Chronicle.
The Fruit Cuekee.
The Indian fruit cuckoo, which, like
all members of the cuckoo family, lays
Its eggs ln tbe nests of otber birds aud
thus avolda the trouble of batching
tbem. ls Baid to exhibit a great deal of
strategy In dealing with crows, its natural enemies. Whereas the hen. an
inconspicuous, speckled gray bird, conceals herself in tbe foliage, the cock,
remarkable for his brilliant black
plumage and crimson eyes, places himself on a perch near a crow's nest and
sets up a great racket Tbe crows Immediately rush out to attack him. and
he takes to flight wltb them in pursuit
The hen meanwhile slips Into tbe nest
and deposits an egg. Sometimes the
crows return before thp egg is laid,
and then the Intruder gets a trouncing.
