YOUNG MEN GATHER
Mission Work in China Ably
and Wisely Discussed.
THE T. N. C. A. EXTENSION
Mr. Leiser Tells of Labors In Troublous Times All Over Society's
Jurisdiction.
There was a generous response ou
the part of all the congregations in
the city, clerical memhers as well as
lay, to the Invitation to meet Mr. F.
O. Leiser, secretary of the international committee of the Y. M. C. A. in
China, at a banquet ln the Y. M. C. A.
building, last evening Mr. T. J.
Trapp, chairman of the board of directors of tbe new building, presided,
and among those who sat down at the
table were Mr. Graham, secretary pi
the Vancouver branch of the Y. M.
C. A.; Rev. J. S. Henderson, St. Andrew's Presbyterian church; Rev. A.
F. Baker, Mount Olivet Baptist
church; Rev. C. W. Brown, Queen's
Crescent Methodist church; Rev. F. C.
Kell, T. H. Smith, H Hotson. T. W.
Harlan, F. T. Phillips, R. Buckland,
Carter Smith, F. O. Canfield, J. D.
Kenedy, J. W. McDonald. Rev. Mr.
Bartlett, Rector St. Barnabas; E. H.
Sands, W. R. Gilley.
The guest of the evening was cordially received by the guests. At th.'
table he was Introduced by Mr. Trapp
in s few felicitous remarks, ably and
tactfully chosen to show the Importance of Y. M. C. A. mission work and
the excellent part which Mr. Leiser Ib
bearing ln it.
Mr. Leiser's address was an admlr
able talk on a subject as oil as Christianity and as big as the Chinese Em-
pin. Ile showed that the apostles of
Christianity ln that much disturbed
Held meet with friends where friends
are IcaBt exacted. In particular, he
mentioned a man who is variously referred to among Anglo-Saxons in China as the Woodfow Wilson and the
Lord Corson of the Chinese Empire,
a man of great executive ability, who
proved himself a statesman while yet
his religious faith was Confucianism,
and is proving equally able and Influential at* a convert to Christianity. Mr.
Leiser told of the Invasion of Manchu
by the Japanese, and of a great parade of Chinese students to the resi-
depee of this man. Jang Nu Lang, and
of their reception by him. Tliey asked
that lie should be their lender. He
asked for twenty-four hours In. which
to  consider   tbo    proposition,  hoping
SnS the i"pfflt%r8i tmportunere
would have dwindled. At the end of
the term specified, bowe.er, the students turned up, eager as ever.
"I am your leader." said he, "chosen
by you. I have the power of life and
death over my followers. You must
obey your leader."
Those ln his immediate vicinity
shouted "Yes," and those farther back,
without hearing bim took up the cry,
"Yes."
"I command you," cried he. "that
you now disperse to your schoolrooms
and obey your teachers. That ls the
only way to drive the Japanese out of
Manchuria.
There were grumblings, but ln the
end the common sense of the crowd
prevailed, and the procession was disbanded.
Thus Ma. Jang Nu Lang save! thc
situation.
Today Mr. Jang Is a Christian, nnd
a member of the Y. M. C. A. Board ct
directors.
The Progress of the Work.
In Tientsin it was found that fifty-
six thousand taels. or $.12,000, was
necessary to establish a V. M. C. A.
building. Mr. Jans BporoaQped ��
banker, who was not a Chris iin. nnd
asked him for $20,000 with which to
start a subscription. Thc banker aslt-
ed for time to think over the matter,
nnd in the end he gave the subscription asked for. Tha necessary money
was raised within thirty davs. and the
banker, the donor of the $20,000 eventually became a Christian. *
Opportunity for Work.
The opportunity for work In China,
said Mr. Leiser, ls tremendous, whether the result of the revolution be the
establishing of a monarchy or of a
republican form of government. "I
think, said the speaker, "that China
Is far better fitted than Portugal, or
Spain, or any of the Bouth American
republic* for a republican form of government. It was at the unanimous
call or all ��the missionaries that the
Y M C. A. went there, and the mls-
slnarles all united ln asking the International committee to Uke full
charge In Canton, j
"The sneaker bore testimony to tne
spirit of friendliness to the Y. M. C. A.
that was engendered and cultivated iy
the American Episcopal church, and
declared that the rea' difficulty waB
that the association ?.ad not enough
men from the American continent.
"We witat a phvslcal director ln Canton " he said. "We have a population
ot two million souls there, and no T.
M. C. A; physical director. Here your
population Is 16,000, and you have a
phvscal director. 1 found a r��>lendW
man the other dav. who is willing to
ro, nro'ided Ms means of support can
be found. They have two m��"n ln

In Other Cities.

��� "   BRITISH FLAG Sllll WIU WAVE

Acquisition of the Fanning Islands By Canada Backed By
British Syndicate Has Established British Naval Base For
All Time.
Lord Graham Found Guilty of Causing
the Stranding of the Cruiser���
Reprimanded.
Lieutenant Lord Graham was today
found guilty by a court martial of
causing, or suffering to be caused, tb.;
stranding of His Majesty's ship Nlobe,
on July 30, on the dangerous ledges
of Cape Sable. He was sentenced to
be reprimanded.
The court was represented by officers of several British cruisers. Captain Bedford was presiding officer,
assisted   by   four     general   officers.
Lieutenant Graham was officer of
the watch up to IC or 20 minutes of
the time the cruiser went ashore.
While the evidence seems to show the
absence of deliberate negligence on
the part of thn officer it developed the
fact that he had not been as attentive
to duty as he should have been.
Lieutenant Graham's reprimand
means nothing more than a black
mark against him.
The members of the court, as well
as tbe witnesses, wore full dress unl
forms.
Halifax, Nov. 15.���The court martial
into the stranding of tbe Nlobe last
summer, which opens today, has become a matter of much interest here.
Naval circles have been discussing
whether the enquiry would be a joint
one, covering the whole case, or whether there would be separate trials
for .each officer who might be considered responsible for the occurrence.
It has been decided that there shall
be three separate trials. The first io
be taken up will be that ot Lord Al-
loster GTshsm, tbe cflker cf Ifcfc!
watch when the cruiser struck on the
southwestern ledge of Cape Sable at
the end of July after some days spent
in Yarmouth in connection with an
old home week celebration there.
Then the court martial will take up
the case of Navigating Lieutenant
White, and when this Is disposed of
the court will finally try Commander
W  B. MacDonald.
It Is announced that Captain Clinton Baker of H. M. S. Berwick will
be president of the court martial, nnd
that wfth hlm wil] be the four officers r.o.t Junior to him. The fcoiy<i
martial will convene on board the
Niobe, which Is anchored in the
stream. The proceedings are announced as open to the public, but the
accommodation in the cabin of the
Niobe wlll be not more than sufficient
for the press and those officials whose
duty it is to be present.
RODGERS RECOVERS
FROM  BAD ACCIDENT
Pasadena, Cal.. Nov. 15.���Galbraith
P. Rodgers, whose ocean-to-ocean
(light nearly ended in death last Sun
day, in a field south of Los Angeles, is
recovering rapidly, and hopts to be
put in two or three days. He says he
will complete his trip next Tuesday,
starting at the place where he fell.
"Ethereal asphyxia," which creeps
irresistibly upon the "senses of an
aviator, lulling him into dreamy unconsciousness, is what Rodgers declares has caused tho death of scores
of aviators,
"It was not the rarified air that
overcame me last Sunday," he said,
today. "I have experienced hydrogen-
lacking air a dozen times and it nevei
affected me. There was no stiffllng
sensation. But I did notice a peculiar
odor, not unlike chloroform. 1 knew
I was falling, but did not lostf con
sciousness until within a few feet of
the ground.
"T.ie sense of drowsiness was flrst
apparent shortly after I had passed
over a small town south of Pasadena
1 was up about 1500 feet. I tried to
shake it off, but lt increased. The de
sire to sleep was irresistible. Then 1
thought the machine could care for
Itself. There was no pain, no noise
in my ears. It was Just a sweet
soothing that 1 wanted to go to sleep."
CHORAL UNION
IS ORGANISED
Tuesday   Evening   Society   Was Successfully Launched, But Members
Still Welcome.
Ahout 60 members attended a meeting ot the Westminster Choral society
held on Tuesday evening In St.
George's Hall. A good start waa made
towards the formation of a massed
choir, which, It la hoped, will prove
second to none In British Columbia.
There ls still room for a few more,
however, and new members will be
welcomed at next Tuesday evening's
practice. Two numbers were gone
over on Tuesday evening, and the. conductor feels satisfied that the success
of the society Is assured.
The following officers were elected
on Tuesday evening: Hon. President,

Victoria, Nov. 15.���Fanning and
Washington islands have been pur
chased tor $350 000 by a powerful
Canadian and British syndicate headed by C. N. Armstrong, of Montreal,
the intention being, it is reported,
to establish a port and naval base at
Fanning. A representative of the
I, Montreal concern was a passenger bn
/the steamer Zealandla from Victoria
to meet Mather Emmanuel Rougier,
whs awaiting his arrival at Honolulu]
when the Marama, which arrived today, left that port on November 8.
Father Rouglcr had chartered a
schooner to take the agent to Inspect
the islands. Arrivals by the Marama
stated the Impression prevailed that
it was the intention of the purchasers
to establish a coaling depot and
probably arrangements would bo made
for a British naval base at Fanning
Island In view of the early opening of
the Panama canal.
Interviewed at Honolulu, the vendor,
Rev. Father Rougier, who bought the
Islands at an auction sale held by
British court at Suva, ln 1907, for
$135,000, said:
"It might be the central station of
that so-long-shadowed 'AU Red Line'
that probably would be in the Paciflc
after tbe Panama canal will he opened.
"The fact that Fanning ialand is already the central station of the
British Paciflc cable adds to the value
of the Island."   Father Rougier added:
"Soon you will see the* Canadian
flag waving In competition with your
stars. This will be the first Canadian
possession in the Paciflc."
Being asked on what circumstances
he thought vessels could flnd lt tc
their interest and advantage to go to
Fanning island instead cf I-lonlulu,
Father Rougier replied:
"Why should vessels going frcm
South America to Hong Kong or
Japan, or vice versa, or from Panama
to the Straits, leave the bee-line    to
I
come 1000 miles out of their way to
call at Honolulj when they could flnd
coal and oil in a nearer harbor. Do
you not think that men of wnr, Britisli
especially, would prefer coaling on
their territory In touch with their own
cable? For these reasons 1 believe the
plan Is to raalntala and develop the
British trade on this side. There is a
natural harbor that can be made the
rendezvous of the British fleet in the
Paciflc."
Honolulu, Nov. 15.���Canadian and
English capital have acquired the
beautiful Fanning and Washington islands, ln the South Sea, at a cost ot
$350,000. As a result England not only
gets a new coaling station and naval
base, but Honolulu's commerce 13
threatened. One million dollars wlll
be Invested ln the development of the
new acquisition this winter.
Mr. C. N. Armstrong, a Montreal
capitalist, backed by a powerful English syndicate, secured the islands
from Father Emmanuel Rougier, a
wealthy priest. Representatives of the
buyer are today Inspecting the islands,
having left Honolulu on a chartered
yacht shortly after arriving here from
Canada.
The purchase is of international importance. The islands lie in the
South Sea group about 1050 miles from
Honolulu. They are rich in mineral
deposits and coccanuts are abundant
as wefl as other tropi'cal fruits. Phosphate and copper are plentiful. Pearl
fisheries will be developed also.
Fanning is a free port, the shortest
and best route across thc Paciflc from
Panama. The natural harbor wlll
easily prove adequate to be used as a
rendezvous for the British fleet In the
Pacific, and Fanning is alreadv the
central station of the British Pacific
cable syndicate.
This i.s the flrst Canadian possession in the PacHic.

Ottawa,   Nov.   15.���At  this    year's
vice-regal drawing room in connection
with the opening of parliament, special recognition will be given to consuls-general.    This    entirely new departure is due to the interest which
the Duke of Connaught has taken in
the  affair.    Cpnsuls-general  have,  in
the past, had no official status or precedence at the drawing room.   As   a
matter of fact they have generally ab
sented themselves from this great social event of the season.   This year'a
drawing room is to be held Saturday
evening in the Senate chamber.  Before  the  presentations  in the cham
ber the   consuls-generals    and    their
wives and daughters will be presented
to their royal highnesses at a special
audience in the speaker's rooms. Thus
Ihey will precede   even   the   cabinet
ministers In order of formal presentation.   The United    States consul-general, Mr. J. G. Foster, who holds senior consular rank at the capital, will
be the first man to be formally presented of the thousand or so who will
make  their  bow    before  their royal
highnesses.
The plan of having a special audience for the consuls-general ls a temporary way out of the annually recurring difficulty of dealing with the ca-
lonlal office regulation which has so
far prevented the according of any of
flcial status as representatives of foreign powers ton consuls general at
overseas capitals. The growing importance of their positions at Ottawa
and the fact that durtngjhe past few
years they have, ln several instances,
been exercising practically ambassadorial functions have been reconlsed
by the government here and was mentioned at the Imperlal Conference last
summer.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier brought up the
question ot amending colonial office
regulations so as to allow of official
recognition being given the consulage nerai at ceremonial functions ln
the overseas capitals. No action however, has as yet been taken along this
Une by Downing street.

Convention on Municipal Government
Approves Important Change In
Representation.
Victoria. B. C, November 15. ���
Among some of the changes in the
legislation regulating municipal government that will be put forward by
the Union of B. C. Municipalities
through the provincial government at
the next session of the legislature is
that recommending a change In the
Municipal Clauses act whereby the
law as now constituted, giving the
right to reglstere! owners of land to
vote on money by-laws wlll be changed
to admit the owners who have registered an agreement, irrespective of
hls assessable interest in tbe property.
Another important recommendation
ts that legislation whereby government and municipal ownership can be
established throughout the province.
The convention refused to adopt a
recommendation that the board of
license commissioners be elected by
popular vote, or ballot.
The convention favored abolition of
the ward system of representation.

Marama brought news    of^ an Island
tragedy frcm the BlBmarcK   archipelago.   Last month a prospecting party,
under the command of Captain Bromp-
ton, left Rabaul to explore the country to the northward of Frledrlch Wil-
helmshaven.    The crew consisted    of
four whites and 20 natives.   They set
sail in a schooner and traveling down
the coast Captain  Brompton and another European left the vessel for the
purpose of making a survey.    They
landed In a boat and proceeded several miles up the river. There they wero
suddenly   set   upon   by natives, who

he said he did not. He said he had
never been in the store before.' We-
asked him about the man in Nanaimo.
and he said ho had had a dream about
him."
In cross-examination Mr. McHars

Chicago, Nov. 15.���"Get-rlch-quiek"
schemes of J. Rufus Walllngford, facile financier of the tried and true
idads to wealth by thrift and industry,
which have met with more or less success when pursued by John D. Rockefeller, J. P. Morgan and others, are a3
the blundering activities of children
compared with a plan submitted to
Postmaster Campbell today.
The plan ls nothing more or les3
than to feed rats tQ cats, skin the
cats and feed the cats back to the
ruts, In endless succession, the only
break being the deduction of the skins,
the sale of which is to supply the profit. The writer, outlining bis plan,
said:
"We will start a cat ranch, getting
1,000.000 cats. Each will have twelve
kittens a year. Cat skins are worth
10 cents for white ones and 75 cents
for black. They will average 30 cents
each. There Is 12,000,000 cat skins a
..car, daily gross Income of some $10,-
boo.
"A man can skin fifty cats for $2,
and It will take 100 men to operate
the ranch, leaving our profit over
$0000 a day. We will have to feed the
cats.    How?
"Start a rat ranch next door. Rats
multiply four times as fast as cats.
We will have, therefore, four rats a
day for each cat, a plenty. How to
feed the rats?
"Simple, feed- them on the cat
bodies���a fourth of a cat per rat���
amply sutfioent Thus, you see, tho
business will be self-supporting and
automatic all the way.
"The cats will eat the rats, and the
rats will eat the cats, and we get the
skins and wealth.   Are you with me?"

Was 12 Feet Lonq, Weighed 250
Pounds and "Fed Many.
The North Dakota Shriners, attending the convention recently held in
Rochester, N. Y., carried along with
them a loaf of bread 12 feet long, two
feet wide and weighing 250 pounds S3
the product of a great wheat-growing
state.
The giant loaf of bread was made
at the North Dakota Agricultural College, under the supervision of Prof.
Arnold. The dough was made by the
bakers of fne experiment station from
the finest hard wheat flour th-' state
could produce, and the loaf was baked
ln a pan 12 feet long by two feet
wide. It rose in the baking pan to a
height of 10 inches. The bakers who
made the loaf calculated that it would
make 12,500 good-sized sandwiches,
and that, if it could be kept fresh. It
would keep a man and his wife in
bread for a year. After its appearance ln the Shriners' procession the
mammoth loaf was given to swell the
supplies of an Industrial school.���Popular Mechanics.

Position of Mlulonariea Is Insecure at
Present.
The word that came to the missionary oftices of the Presbyterian church
in Toronto, the other day, was not of
an encouraging nature. 'I wo cables ar-
j rived from  North  Ilonan   both dated
I November  2.    One was fn.m Cheng-
ItehO, which read;    "Mrs G. Eadle, do
|not come;  reasons by letter."     This
I was sent presumably from Mr. Eadle,
| who is stationed at Cbengteho.   Mrs.
'Eadle was to have sailed fiom   Victoria, on her return to her husband,
The other cablegram was from
Weiwei. North lionan, for Mr. J. B.
Hattie, of Montreal, who was to have
wailed from Victoria with Mrs. Ladle.
It read as follows: "Advise you to
postpone departure of Hat tie." The
office here immediately sent a tele-
gram to stop his departure.
lt appears from this message that
the missions In Honan are not in a
secure position at present. The two
places mentioned are on the railway
line that runs directly between Han-
ikow and Pekin, though they are much
nearer Pekin. Rev. Dr. McGilivray,
who is a returned missionary from
Shanghai, thought It likely that Hankow had fallen onee more into the
hands of the rebels, who.would now
be hard to control.
A letter has come from thc Committee of Reference and Counsel of
Foreign Missions, enclosing several
cablegrams fiom different pans of
China. One read; "Legation at Pe-
kin   advised   American   women   and
children along line of I'ekin Iltmkow
Railway, in rear of Imperial army, to
withdraw to places of safety."   Thla
would seem to Indicate ihat the Imperial troops were retreating toward
the north fiom Hankow, and would
bear out Dr, McQlllvray's belief that
the Imperial troops had been driven
out of Hankow.
Another message said; "Advised
American women and children in Provinces of Shens'l and Chlchll, except at
Pekin, to remove to coast." Another
said; "Mission stations well and safe
up to present, so far as we know,
and every protection is afforded." Another from Shanghai said: "Theie
are no means of communication with
Honan. Our Presbyterian missions at
Cbichli not disturbed."
The Province of Honan lies to the
southwest of Hankow and connection
j with the coast must come through
that city. In Shang-Sha, the capital of
Hunjm, there are a number of missionaries, and there are several stationed at Heng-Chow, some 80 miles
farther inland.

PEERAGE   ROMANCES.
Shop Assistants Who Founded Noble
Families.
Cobdee once asserted that "the British aristocracy was cradled behind
city counters." While there may be
some exaggeration in the statement, a
Btudy of the genealogical trees of our
aristocracy reveals many romant'c
stories of humble folk who have founded families which.today figure largely ln tbe peerage. Mr. Thornton Hall,
who is unequalled as a popular writer
on the records of our noble families,
devotes an interesting chanter in hla
recently-published book, "Love Romances of the Aristocracy" (Werner
Laurier), to the subject, and shows
how In the veins of scores of the
prod'iest English peers runs the blood
of ancestors who served customers in
city shops.
Among the forefathers ot the Duke
of Northumberland, for Instance , we
find such names as William le Smythe-

b^HbJa  CITY  HOSPITAfl	
The suggestion which was mooted
at the last meeting o�� the City Council
that New Westminster should have t
civic Hospital was a step In the right
direction, lt was, however, a step
���which Bhould have been taken a long
time ago, and to which many more
steps'should have been added by this
date.
Of all Ihe amenities which should he
possessed by a city of the size of this,
one of the most desirable to be attained -is that of a public hospital.
There should be come place run by
the municipality where the poor,
whom we have always with us. could
not pnly, get care and attention, in
��ase of serious accident or illness,
away from, the offfcn squalid and
wretched siirroundini;s of their own
homes, but where also in case of
minor afflictions they could receive
outside attention and become as they
are catted 'in'ail larpe cities "out patients."
The out patients' department or dls-
rensary from which meuicine is dispensed, and where wounds receive
care and proper dressing, has hpen
tho means of saving untold numbers
of lives. The poor cannot afford to
spend the few dimes or quarters from
the hard-earned savings of the week

Emperor's Powers Curtailed.
Berlin, Nov. 11.���The general criticism in connection with the Moroccan
agreement with Frarice, that the
Reichstag should have t�� voice in the
conclusion of such momentous trea- j
ties, has made a breach in the constitutional position of the Emperor as a
treaty-making power. Vice-Chancellor
Delbruick yesterday announced to the
committee of the Reichstag to whom
the Franco-German treaty had been referred that tFie government had decided that parliament had a right to be
consulted in a treaty involving the acquisition or cession of colonial territory. They accepted the proposed
statute requiring the assent of the
Reichstag and the Bundesrath to any
0f j change In the boundary of a colony,
but the Moroccan-Congo treaty was
excluded, under the existing law.

EXPORT OF  PULPWOOD.
Forestry Branch of Department of Interior Compiles Statistics.
The exportation of pulpwood in a
raw form from Canada into the United
States is increasing yearly, and by
just so much as this is bo does Canada
lose the benefits to be derived from
manufacture and the increased v��lue
of raw products. The toHitrf branch
of the Department of the Interiorfhas
compiled statistics showing that over
a million and a half of cords of pulp-
forty-three thousand cords of Canadian pulpwood sent into the United
States in 1901, three hundred and
seventy-seven thousand tons of me-
canical pulp and two hundred and
eighty-three thousand tons of chemical pulp were made. The value of
this pulp, for which Canada received
six million two hundred and ten thousand dollars as pulpwood, was over
thirteen and a half million dollars at
the average prices paid in 1910 by
United States importers of pulpwood.
Thus Canada did not get cne-half the
amount she would have received if all
pulpwood were converted into pulp on
Canadian soil. As the United States
does not export two per cent of what
it imports, a certain and steady market would be found for all the wood
pulp of Canadian production.

MATTERS MARTIAL:
BY GARETH
A report that the Minister of Militia
IntendB to authorize the raising of two
new regiments, one of Gallclans at
Winnipeg, and one of Hindus in Vancouver, has been calling forth numer
ous comments from officers more or
less distinguished, of the latter city.
"The reason of this move ls somewhat
���obscure, lf indeed, it exists at all. A
���departure from precedent, such aB the
raising of a Sikh regiment in Canada,
has got to have some very strong motive before it can materialize. One
���of the aforementioned distinguished
officers thinks they should be enrolled
in case of trouble with the Indiana up
north, as if that were sufficient excuse to warrant the expenditure. Why
not Chinamen or Japs, then? Sikhs
undoubtedly make splendid soldiers,
*6 do Japanese, and the Chinese are
showing quite a little martial ar lor at
present. The Idea of enlisting colored
troops with the one object, namely.
Indian fighting, is absurd. Even supposing a few Siwashes have partaken of too much "hooch," decide to
"shoot up" the district, is there any
reason to suppose that the police will
not be able to control the situation
perfectly well, as they did recently
inthe Hazelton country? Or jailing
them, could not the services of the
Hoyal Northwest Mounted Pojlce be
reiniinstloned, or a sufficient force of
mllltla embodied? Ab a matter of fact
the most likely course to be adopted
would be the swearing In, and arming as special constables, of a number
���of prospectors, trappers anl others,
used to the bush and accustomed to
the ways of Indians, who would be by
far the most useful men for the work.
Where would the sense come In of
raising a Hindu legiment for such an
eventuality ?
"These questions are not governed bv
the whims of a few who fancy they
would look well in tlie semi-Oriental
uniform of the European officer in the
Indian array, but with ail due regard
to the considerations of national economy, perhaps these distinguished officers are not aware that a signatory of
the Geneva convention, Great Britain
would be unable to avail herself in a
war against a white race, of her
many loyal and efficient native soldiers who are recruited am' trained in
the various parts of the Empire. These
troops being raised for specific purposes In tbeir own countries, have
done and arc yet doing work that is
fitted for a place in the most glorious
annuls of any race. Tbe fact remains, however, that the need for
them In this country does not exist,
and to go to the expense of raising
them, therefore, would be a gross misplacement of public funds. 1 do not
mean to disparage the Sikh as a fight-
ing man; all the world knows his
value but to raise a regiment of them"
would be lust as costly aa to raise another regiment of ordinary mllltla.
und whereas the native soldiery would
only be available for service in native
wars, white troops may be used for
any contingency that may arise and
therefore present better value for the
money invested. The exigencies of
the publlc service form the chief factor of military expansion, and it seems
to me that this move would liardly be
in accordance with tbe best interests
of that service.
Another point which' must not be
lost sight of is that the object of the
active militia is not so much to retain the services of old soldiers and
trained men, as to be continually
passing untrained men through the
ranks ln order that thu percentage in
the reserve, which includes every
able-bodied man ln Canada who
is a British subject, of men who have
served their time In a regiment, may
ever increase.
I have no idea whence this report
originated, hut I rather suspect that
someone has been taking a surreptitious pull at the legs of these "distinguished officers."
As a matter of fact there are many
old soldiers ot the Indian Army ln
this province today who would, no
doubt, welcome the opportunity of
serving once more, and the capacity
in which they could be usefully
employed would be in the army medical corps. A company of these men
trained to act as hearers and attached
to the local unit of that branch of the
service would be of immense use in
the field, and Indeed, ln the case ol
any great emergency, such as a big
fire or an earthquake, their service
would be Invaluable.
The Sikhs have as much right to say
"Civls Ilrlttanlcus Sum," as anybody,
their patriotism and ability ls acknowledged universally, but at the
same time their employment in any
other capacity, than as mentioned
above, does not present a fair return
for the cost of initial organization and
maintenance on account of their
sphere of usefulness being curtailed
by the Geneva convention.
The parade calleil "or 104th Regiment. Headquarters Companies, for
last Thursday night, was hardly a success. Six men tuTTSed up, which, however, is really more than was anticipated. It is to be earnestly hoped
that the present state of affairs will
be made the subject of an official enquiry. Why should the mffitia in this
city become a mere okej? There are
men and to spare bere. The population Is nearly 15.000, ancl six men for
drill, forsooth. There must be something radically wrong, and It is high
time that the matter be taken up by
the authorities and probed to the bot
torn. There Is no doubt tbat we could
raise at least four companies here un
der normal condition and to see things
ns quiet around the Drill Hall as ihey
are at present shows that something Is
amiss. Until the evil is discovered
things wlll only drift from bad to
worse, and the regiment will get a
name here which it will find it difficult to outlive.

DECAYING AMATEURI8M
New York, Nov. 15���Reforms of a
radical nature in the polciy and coh-
utitutlon of the amateur Athletic
Union, will be prepared, at the annual meeting In New Tork, Nov. 20.
Further conservation of the amateur
Spirit and character of athletics favored by the A. A. U., ls the the goal
aimed at In the proposed reforms, and
the elimination of the athlete whose
services aro practically bought, by
means of inducements which are of
the same moral effect as fees ls aimed at
Two rules, in particular, wlll be proposed. One wlll provide that an ath-
Tatrwho leaves a club affiliated, with
the A. A. V. must remain Unattached
" for two years before he will be eligible for membership In a different club.
The iecohd provides that noetudent
in a college mp university may be held
to an athletic club other than that of
Wb own Allege. Other provisions
suggested are that no athlete may
engage In a contest under A. A. *.

the registration committee of his district a bona fide certlflcate of four

In the reforms sugestcd, said today, ia
to remove the scandal threatening
the Amateur Athletic Union every
now and then. There is no denying
that when a small club develops a
pood athlete there is a rush by the
big and wealthy ones to take him
away from the club.
This means professionalism in a
thinly veiled form, slncelt gets clubs
bidding against each other and encourages the athlete to lend himself
to the club making the best offer. It
prevents the small club that develops
him. out ot profiting hr the "find."
This condition ls found In athletic
clubs as well as in colleges. The
now rules are designed to make it
impossible.

GALE DOES DAMAGE
AT CAPE FLATTERY
Bremerton, Nov. 15.���A terrific gale
off Cape Flattery broke off a portion
of the fifty-foot topmast of the United
States wireless station at Tatoosh island Monday night. Word of the accident was received here yesterday.
The broken mast, hanging in the rigging was thrashed about the mainmast by the gale and threatened further dumage. It was finally secured
temporarily.
The wireless service was not greatly
damaged and the station Is still able
to communicate with other points. A
sixty-mile wind has been blowing at
Tatoosh all day, preventing permanent
work being done.

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1911.
PUZZLED ALL AROUND.
A   Russlsn's   First  Enceuntsr  With
English In London.
A Russian tails a funny story ol hli
flrst encounter with the English language. The day after his arrival in
London he made a call on a friend in
Park lane and on leaving inscribed in
hit notebook what he supposed to b��
the correct address.
The next day. desiring to go to th��,
same place again, hs culled a cabman
and pointed to the address that he had |
written  down.    The cabman   looked
him over, cracked hit whip and drove
away without him.
This experience being repeated with
two or three other cabmen, the Russian turned indignantly to the police,
with no better results. One officer
would laugh, another would tap his
head and make a motion imitating the
revolution of a wheel and so on.
Finally the poor foreigner Rave it up
and with a great deal of difficulty, recalling thc landmarks which he had
observed the day before, found his way
to his friend's house. Arrived there
and in company with one who could
understand him he delivered himself
of a severe condemnation of the cab
men and the police of London for their
impertinence and discourtesy.
His friend asked for a look at the
mirth-provoking address and the mystery was solved.   This was the entry:
'Ring the  Hell."
The Russian had with great care
OOpisd, character for character, the
legend on the gatepost, suppo.-ing that
it indicated the house and .���'treet. ���
"Yoj Art So Different."
Fancy not that the flirt is brainless.
��'.ie must have the wits of the wisest,
else her prey escapes. She is to each
man what tnat man must adores. If
he is du'.l, she is not too bright. If he
is cl.ver. she must sparkle. If he it
bookish she reads all the day that she
may modestly display knowledge
when he calls at night and. drawing a
beloved volume from his pocket, begins to U'll her of his vellum-bound
treasures, if he loves horses and
dogs she dares not tell him of her
motor-car. Should he chance to say
that woman, like the angels, should
dress in white she appears only in
snowy raiment. To be so keen and
tactful requires something more than
mentality, it calls for the intuition of
a witch and the depths ol a philosopher.
The flirt   must   have   a   sense   of
humor, but this she must keep concealed.    The first sentence in man's
primer of love-making is:  "You are
so  different,"  and  even   though  the
ijoke maker and tlie librettist of the
ccmic opera have endeavored to show
man that woman la wise to the emptiness of this remark, man still uses it
shamelessly,   if a woman follows her
impulse she will laugh.   She will say
that little Sammy whom Bhe loved at
the tender age of seven began his conquest by saying: "You ain't like th'
other girls."   That would offend,    lt
would place man in an unflattering
light.   He would appear as if minus
originality.    And  that  is  what he is.
One man's love making is a carbon
copy   of   another's   and   that   is   the
pleasure of flirting.   One seeks always
the man-wonder who will say "I love
you" so that il really  tsounds aa if it
were  new  instead ot something renovated  or  made  over.
One never finds him.
A Very   Pertinent Question.
An Irishman on his way home at
right was in the habit oi cutting
through a cemetery in order to shorten
tiie distance. A group of his friends
evolved a scheme to have some fun at
his expense. Accordingly they found
a sunken grave across which his path
lay, dug it out and covered it with
boards in such a manner that he must
fall into the yawning cavity. '
The Irishman came along and everything happened as per schedule. While
he was still squirm.ng about in the
bottom of the hole, striving to extricate himself, three or four of his
friends, aftired in white sheets and
other ghostly accoutrements, suddenly
made their appearance. Pat was
frightened out of his wits and almost
fainted when one of them said;
"What are you doing in my grave?"
The tone was sepulchral. It made
the Irishman's hair stand almost on
end, but he could not forego a witty
retort.
"Faith, and what are vou doing out
of it?" he asked.
Old  English Tracts.
English tracts and sermons of the
seventeenth and eighteenth eentutie*
are decidedly interesting on account
of tho Btrange phraseology���a kind of
religious Blang���which they reveal,
Their titles exemplify this slang well,
and the following are a few example*
of thera:
"The Spiritual Mustard Pot, t'.
Mak.- the Soul Sneeze With Devo-
tion.-"
"The Snuffers of  Divine Love."
"Crumbs of Comfort For Hungrv
Hoseaa.""
''Biscuitt Baked in the Oven of
Charity. Carefully Conserved For
Chickens of the Church, Sparrows of
the Spirit and Sweet Swallows of
calvatioii. '
He Was  In  Bad.
Tliere is in a certain town a judge
who occasionally hits the flowing bowl
until it puts him down and out. Oue
morning, following em unusually swift
encounter with the alcoholic loe, he
appeared iu his office looking sad'and
shaken up.
"How are you this morning. Sam?"
inquired a friend.
"Worse than I've ever been " replied the judge with a groan. "I'm in
bad at home. When 1 left the house
a little while ago the children were
calling ine Sam and my wife was addressing  me  as  Mister."

FRASER RIVER REVIEW
Summary of news published for investors who are interested in developments
on the Fraser and Pitt Rivers, in the vicinity of Port Mann and Coquitlam
Douglas Island Lies at Junction of Pitt and Fraser
Rivers���Commanding Position for Shipping and Industries ��� Has Nearly 500 Acres for Industries;
18,500 feet or 3M> Miles of Waterfrontage.
You know that when railways acquire waterfrontage they DO NOT
PART WITH IT. This statement is amply borne out by the policy of the
Canadian Pacific Railway on Burrar I Inlet and elsewhere; of the Great Nor-
thern Railway on Puget Sound and also at Vancouver.
Therefore, waterfrontage for Industries and for new transportation lines
Is ALWAYS AT A PREMIUM. The few privately owned pieces of waterfrontage on Burrard Inlet, for instance, command prices of $100 per foot at the
extreme east end, to $1000 per foot in the vicinity of Coal Harbor. One
thousand dollars Is also the price on the north side of the Inlet.
These figures are for frontage on SALT WATER. Industries and ship
ping betake themselves to FRESH WATER whenever possible. Seattle at
great expense has opened Lake Washington to ships. The Mersey,, the
Thames, the St. Lawrence and the Hudson attract the shipping of the world.
Therefore the freight and operating terminals of two great continental railway lines are being located on opposite sides of the Fraser river���notice,
also on opposite sides of Douglas Island.
Mark you, it is not merely that a new set of financial Interests, the
Canadian Northern System, are locating on one side of the Fraser. This ln
itself is slgnificent.   But the great Canadian Pacific    System,    established
The next issue of the Fraser River
Review will contain a key map showing the exact location of Douglas
Island in relation to Port Mann and
Coquitlam*
Also other interesting information.
here [or many years, is moving its terminals to the opposite side of the
SAME SECTION' OF FRESH WATER HARBORAGE.
BOTH THi:si3 INTERESTS have acquired MUCH WATERFRONTAGE.
Their policy, as in the past, will doubtless be to HOLD c'.ose'.y what they
have and ACQIIKE more if possible. Other large industries have also acquired extensive frontage on THIS PART OF THE RIVER.
Very few- pieces of waterfrontase are obtainable here. As against
prices of $1000 per foot on Burrard Inlet, the prices on this section of the
Fraser vary from $40, east of Douglas Island, to $100 per foot west of the
Fraser Mills. You will thus appreciate the splendid opportunity for large
and ipiick profits from Fraser River waterfrontage.
You will shortly have an opportunity to buy DOUGLAS ISLAND waterfrontage and acreage���an opportunity to buy lt at YOUR OWN PRICE. You
should study this situation AT ONCE and be prepared for your opportunity
There are nearly r,00 acres and three and a half miles of waterfrontage in
DOUGLAS ISLAND. Notice Its location in the Fraser at the mouth of the
Pitt, almost directly between the terminals of two of the greatest of transcontinental railway systems.
This jis  Your  Opportunity.    More  Information  in

GAS POISONING.
Why It Is   on   the   Increase���lllumin-
ant Made From Water.
It is not only that the Increasing
frequency of deaths by gas poisoning
has caused alarm, says the Mail and
Empire, The new process of making
gas by water instead of by coal .11-
rectly is world-Wide, and world-wide
are some of its results. It is chear.er
to make water gas than to make coal
Kas, and the method, therefore, appeals to gas companies, and probably
asisls them in the gradual reduction
of price that has been made in Toronto and elsewhere. Nevertheless,
some authorities insist, that there is;
not a great deal cf iTilferenco in th"
cost of th" two processes. Prof. Sedgwick discussed the matter before the
Massachusetts Association of Hoarls
of Health, and he declared   that, al-
although the light today may read 21
candle power and the oid gas light
only 16 candle power, the old light
was a better one for domestic pur-
poses. The increasing use of gas for
cooking is really responsible for the
reduction in price, or it may be the
other way about. In any event, water
f,as is not entitled to the whole credit, by any means of the reduced price.
It is to be granted, however, that the
old gas Is much less convenient to
make.
1 A Peril Long Recognized.
Tlie paper read by Prof. Sedgwick
brings to light the fact that the deadlier effects of water pas weie recognized in Massachusetts thirty years
ago, and came to light in the course
of a battle between certain old-established companies making coal gas and
a new company which desired to
place water gas on the market. Tlie
old( r companies informed th;> public
as to the deadly effects oi*carbon mon-
oNide,' which is a much greater proportion of the new gas than of the
old, and were successful in having a
state law passe I to the Gsect that no
vas having moie than 10 per cent of
this product should be used. Later on,
however, the companies came to terms
and united ln requesting the legislature to remove the restriction, which
was done In 1890. Since then it has
been legal to manufacture and sell for
domestic purposes the deadly water
gas. One good result of Massachusetts' early stand on the question is
preserved in the form of an annual
record of deaths from gas poisoning.
As Deadly as Typhoid.
These statistics are most alarming.
They show that in the fifty years in
which no water gas was used ln the
state, except in tlje few cases wbere
it was legally manufactured Snd sold,
there were only about half a dozen
cases of gas pouonlng. In the past
twenty years, since water gas- has j
been legalized and widely used, there
have been at least 1200. "It Is not
that a pretty high price to pay for the
convenience of manufacturers?" demands Prof. Sedgwick. He goes on to
show that r.s u -natter of fact gas
poisoning, as a cause of death, has
grown until it ranks with such diseases as scarlet fever and measles, ln
Rhode   Island,   Massachusetts,   New
York and Pennsylvania, and tbe north*
ern tier of states It ls recognized as
one of the most serious causes of
sickness and death. In the north
generally more people die of gas poisoning than of Infantile paralysis, and
in' the state of Massachusetts ther;
are more victims per thousand than
die annually of typhoid fever ln such
cities as. Cincinnati and Hamburg.
A Deadly, Peril.
Experiments made) by investigators
show clearly enough that the nev/
method of making gas, ls much more
dangerous than the old method. They
show, for example* that even if one
were exposed to the fumes of coal
gas for six or seven or even eight
hours he might be resuscitated, and
that the chances of his recovery would
be a little better than even; while
to breathe the water gas for two or
three hours means death. ThiB ls a
most important point, for it is well
known that probably 99 per cent ot
the victims of water gas poisoning All
In the night wnnin sound of those who
would come to their to their rescue if
the alarm were giVen. In the morn-
lng the escaping gaa attracts the attention   of   others,   and   usually   a
prompt investigation is made. Tbe difference in the two gases ls this, that
whereas the sufferer from the coal
gas has a good chance of being revived, the victim of the water gas has
no chance at all, and even lf his
plight were discovered in two or three
hours, the poison inhaled ln that time
would be enough to enfeeble him tor
life, even though he Aid not then succumb.
Return to the Old Method.
In some places gas companies still
use the old-fashioned gas, and in the
opinion of Prof. Sedgwick the pnlyt
solution of the difficulty is for all
makers of gas to return to the old
method. They might take cognizance
of the fact that tue public is now coming to realize the danger of water gas,
and that many people are afraid to
have lt in the house. If a return were
made to the old system of manufacture this fear would vanish, and the
companies would secure many customers whom they cannot get today. This
increase ln sales would, it ls argued,
more than make amends for the Increased cost of the old method ot
manufacture, and the gas companies
would not be the losers.

Correct Carriage.
Walking or standing with tbe kneee
crooked Is merely a bad bablt ln a
child, and It must be corrected with Incessant reminders, and an Inclination
toward round shoulders cau be treated
to a great extent in tbe same manner, j
Give the child's  vanity a  boost by
telling lt to go nnd look In the glass!
when It Is walking In these ways and!
after awhile merely saying tbe word)
"glass" will be a reminder of tbe mis- j
conduct    But If a physical weakness]
attends the trick of dropping tbe shoul-1
ders over go to the children's corset
department in any big store, purchase'
a linen brace and make the child wear
tt until It gets over tbe trick.
Nourishing food, fresh air nnd sootb-l
lng batbs are required even more than'
orthopedic boots nnd braces In tbe cor-1
rectlon of any youthful trouble. If]
the child Is not properly fed nnd sleeps I
In a room wltb bad air tbe nerves are!
poisoned and the muscles starved, and!
tbe trouble shows Itself tn the weakest!

rickets and otber disagreeable signs
In little bodies all mean that nature

HE HAD HIS HAIR CUT.
And It Took a Long, Long Time te
Find Out by Whom.
Ons ol tbe most elaborate and sustained practical jokes on record was
that played on J. M. Langtord���commonly Known as "Joe" ��� some fifty
years ago. According to the version
given iu the "Lite oi oir William Hus-
sell," Langford wan in the Uarr.cn
Club in London wnen Albert buntti
accuited turn: "Heilo, Joe! Who has
cul your mar?" Jue wan m fc Uigui-
tied mood and resented uie query. "1
really don't see," he replied, "now it
can interest you wno cut my lia.r. '
tinitfi went uu wm.a:ia und stood in
trie nail, ine nexl member who came
up to tne morning ruuin sauntered up
to Langiord wun. "i see juu've beeu
nav:iig your hair cut. \\no did it?"
Joe \cry sternly replied, "1 can't imagine May yuu usu uie." ii.en ne or-
UcreU a glass oi ci.crry and bitters,
iue ua.u.- urougut il and gave a utile
start oi surpr.se as he presented it
wun a "ocg paraon, sir! -.s along of
your 'air, c.r, u loons unusual." Joe
weal tu ine giass aud saw nothing re-
oiarkuDle, on as ne was considering
ii.s tace Lnaries burst upon him witu,
"WiK-re on earth did you gel your
hair cut,  my  uear Joer"
Joe cuuld stand it no longer. He
went oii to ins chambers in Raymond's buildings, bray's Inn. Next
day he saw an advertisement in tbe
imiL's: "J.M.L.���bay, wno cut it? Was
it }'iur own hand or the deed oi an-
otner? Conless ere it be too late."
lt was only the first oi a series oi similar announcements, and the ingenuity
of his tormentors devised continual
surprises for him. On the day he
went down to Chertsey races he saw
the walls placarded with enormous
yosters, yeilow and black: "J.M.L.���
Lines more, who cut? Vou must
fcp''ak!" A band of Kthiopian minstrels was furnished with a melody to
sing outside Raymond's buildings to
the air of "What Are the Wild Waves
baying?" then very popular. And the
retrain was:
Vh*n are de wild waves saying as dey
lap de  Waterloo stair?
What are dem wild waves saying? Dey
say, Who cut Joe's hair?
In despair, Langford went abroad,
and when, at Chamonix, he climbed to
tne Cascade des feienns he lound
plastered in front of him a huge yellow poster bearing the words: "J.M.L.
���Confess, reveal, or be iorever lost!
Who cut it?" Joe's spirit was broken.
He sat down and wrote a humble letter to Albert Smith: "I yield. Spare
me. My hair was cut in St. Martin's
court al the barber's on the left hand
s.de. His charge was threepence. 1
am quite  beaten."

Air Sickness,
Most everybody knows about sea-
sickness, and its kindred woes that
come from riding in trains or climbing
mountains, but very few know what it
is to be airsick, the av.ator's ailment.
Afr sickness, as experienced by aviators, is quite different from ordinary
mountain sickness. Il is v.ell known
that many mountain climbers experience a certain sickness wnen reacning
an elevation oi 6,000 feet.
Aviators are affected in a similar
way, but much sooner, when they
have reached heignts of, say, only
3,000 feet to 4,000 feet. The respiration
is shortened, the pulse beats quicker,
and headache tallows. A general feeling ot sickness is lhe result, aud the
stomach is sometimes upset.
The dangers of high flying, therefore,
are immensely increased, as the aviator has not only to manage the equilibrium ot ids machine aud watch tbe
motor, but has also to battle against
physiological difficulties which are almost insurmountable. The air sickness
reaches its maximum, not when rising
but when descending.

His Proclamations.
A divorce trial in Paris which was
decided a few weeks ago brought to
light this remarkable situation: The
husband, a bank employe, decided iu
1908 to cease speaking to his wife
and to make his wishes known by
"proclamations" which he fastened to
the wall oi their living room. The
first oi them was to tne effect that
every husband should pay his share
ol the living expenses, but no more.
"I shall pay my hall; my wile must
pay her share," he wrote. "To prove
expense account correct, bills must
be shown. 1 shall take my meal*
out of the house and when inclined to
eat at home shall provide the material and do the cooking." The proclamations also contained lectures ou
moral questions and threats ol punishment. According to the deposition
of the wife, the last one read, "Adele.
I'm going away." The court gave the
woman her freedom.
Real  Hadss.
The golf bug's soul came back from
a little range around Satan's preserve
wth a smile as wide as the Amaxon
river. "1 say," it exclaumed, "1 don't
call this much of a hell. Ihey have
the finest golf course out there 1 ever
saw in my life."
A droll-looking old soul who was
sitting on the safety valve looked tip.
"But did you see anybody playing
on it?" he asked.
"No," the newcomer admitted. "1
didn't."
The old-timer chuckled. "That's it,"
he said. "He won't let anybody play
on it."
