Fraser river was frozen completely

taken across to South Westminster
on a sleigh drawn by a horse. That
Is one of'the records of severe weath
er in the Royal City against which
the memory of man runneth not to
tbe contrary. There may have been
others winters which were worse, but
they are not so well authenticated
anl are not remembered by so many
of the present day dwellers here.
The special tame meteorologist of
The Dally News ls authority for the
statement tbat eighteen Inches of
snow fell between 7 o'clock on Saturday evening and midday on Sunday.
This alone will take some beating
and about fifty years from now tbe
then oldest Inhabitant may be making a song about tbe phenomenal fall.
The fact that this great fall of
snow made so little practical difference to the traffic of the city cars
and the local trains speaks volumes
for the efficiency of tbe modern appliances with wl.'eh these concerns
are equipped. By rr��ldday yesterday
traffic between this city snd Vancouver over the line of the B. C. Electric Company had been rcsur.ied under the normal schedule. The Gr<sat
Northern trains from Seattle and
points in Washington arrived ln the
afternoon on time.
Fortunately Ihe day was Sunday,
when many business people might Indulge themselves with a day indoors,
and judging from the thaw which is
at present in progress no great
amount of difficulty will be experienced today in getting around.
The fall of snow and the frost and
the strength  of the  storm  se, ms  to
iliave been much moro violent In the
��ast than in tbe favored WeBt.   How-
Iyer the, iiiiiiBiialness of it has caused
little Inconvenience locally.    For
ance shopping on Saturday night
carried on under the most disa-
Eablo coditlons,  and as  many  as
jld stayed within a smali radius af

height of popularity and the side hills
were .in nrand condition for the latter
sport, It ls marvellous and Incomprehensible where all the bob sleighs
and little sleighs spring from on
these sudden .occasions.
Red noses and snuffles were well
to the fore ss usual, and the pretty,
girl's red cheeks was set off by the
pretty girl's read beak. It wns great
to bring out-that fine fur coat from
Its wrappings and balls of camphor
and to wear it down the street. A
little thing; like that .almost makes
the snow worth while���for those
bless��d   with  furcoats.
A story that comes from Denver ls
perhaps the most extraordinary ei
all. It Is leported from that olty that
in :the short Brace of ten mlnu.es iho
thermometer fell no Iers than foitv

���F. In the course of one hour after
this tlie descent was still slower as
the mercury went down to two degrees below zero.
Results of Storm.
Thc renewal of the snow storm Saturday, left the railways In the neighborhood much worse off than It found
them. Yesterday morning the B. C.
E. R track to Vancouver was Impassably and no cars ran oh the interurban line. A start was made at noon,
and early In the afternoon the usual
service was In full operation. As a
matter of course the train service
east and west bas been Interrupted,
and most trains on the C. P. R are
running late. At tbe Creat "Northern
depot the agent in charge reported
last night that the Seattle train, due
here at 5:55, got ln on time.

On  Request of City Prosecutor Wlll
Be Reopened on Wednesday
Whether the police of Vancouver
bave sufficient evidence to convict,
oi at least secure a committal1 of
Watson Snowden on the charge of
murdering William Urquhart by shoot
ing him In his store on Cordova St.,
on tbe night of September 11, ls a
question which ls not yet settled
After a second day's hearing at the
end of lust we.'k, another adjornmeut
waB mude.
One witness, called on the resumption of the hearing, expressed the belief that Snowden was a man he met
oing Into the store as lie was leaving. Immediately afterwards he had
heard three shots fired in rapid succession, and. on turning around, he
saw the same man come out of the
store. lie picked Snowden from
among n number cf prisoners as be
infi mott like the man he had scon
at the time and in the circumstances
he had described.
A police constable said he believed
Snowden was the man be had seen
disappear into an allay Immediately
after the shooting.
William Alexander Urquhart, a son
of the, murdered man now carrying
on the business conducted by the fa
ther, said Snowden went into the
store the day before he was u Tested
and told him the man who mur ?��red
his father was either in Nanaimo or
Ladysmith, and that be wore a soft,
brown felt hat and had a red moustache. The witness asked Snowden
lf he would go an.l tell the police
what he knew, hut Snowden said.
"Aw, I can do better myself." He
added that he had already spoken to
a sergeant about lt. Snowden also
referred to a mirror being broken
during the shooting, but witness knew
there was in reality no mirror there
at the time.
Mr. J. K. Kennedy, city prosecutor,
said he did not wish to close his case
yet, and further adjournment was ta
ken till Wednesday next.

Fate of China's Throne Rests
With Shi Kai.
Communication  Being Effected �� wltn
Rebel Leader-Country Is in a
Stats of Suspsnss.
PEKING, Nov. 12.���The fate of the
throne of the Chinese empire rests
in vie action of Yuan Shi Kal. The
latest message from Yuan, who bas
been conducting negotiations with the
rebel leader, General Ll Yuen Heng,
Indicates that a compromise ls possible; that General Li was being less
Irreconcilable, but that there was a
difference of opinion between Ll and
his coleagues on the matter of pollcy.
According to foreign official telegrams from Hankow, last evening,
General Li, falling to exact better
terms, might perhaps be persuaded to
agree to the partition of China that
portion of the country south of the
Yangtse becoming republican, Manchuria and Chi Ll remaining mon-
archlal, and the other provinces making their own choice. Many of Li's
followers demand the overthrow of
the government and scout the idea of
dividing the empire. Tihe government has requested that the reported
flight of the emperor be denied.
Roger S. Green, the American con-
sulat-general at Hankow, reports that
big guns have been mounted for an
attack on Han Yang. Chinese officials
report the bombardment of Han Yang
began yesterday.
Shanghai, Nov. 12.���Reports from
every point this morning show the
country in a state of suspense. Conditions at Shanghai are nearly normal. Nanking reports skirmishing.
The Foo Chow Tartar general has
been beheaded in consequence of the
Nanking massacre.
Amoy, Nov. 12.���Taotai Chan assumed office today. The Radicals fa-
cor surrendering tbe city to the rebels and this policy will prevent bloodshed.
Chang Wo, with a population esti
mated as high as 1,000,000, situated
twenty-five miles west by north of
Amoy, reports that the rebels are in

Justice of Company's  Act  Subject of
Argument���Bonus Wanted for
Coke Production.
Victoria, Nov. 11.���Before the taxation commission here today Mr. J. J.
Shallcross of tbe Board of Trade dealt
with the operations and alleged defects of the B. C. Companies' Act. His
attitude was one roundly censuring
It, but on being asked by Commissioner Lugrin if it were not a fact
that the much condenmned B. C. Act
had not been cordially approved by
tbe British Board of Trade as more
ln harmony with the British law than
any other company law ln Canada, he
bad to admit that this was quite correct. Mr. Shallcross said that tbe
condemnation had been earneTby the
complete provisions in the matter of
prospectuses, etc., for the protection
of investors and tbe public generally.
Mr. W. Blakemore compared the incidence of mine taxation in Egland
and ln British Columbia. In England, be aaid, there was no government tax on coal, revenue instead being derived by the taxation of the
property of the mining companies.
Here a tonnage tax was substituted.
Tbere was also a tax upon coke here
of fifteen cents per ton. Speaking
from long experience he regarded tbe
taxation of coke as entirely a mistake, because tbe production of coke
was the only satifactory way to atil-
Ize what otherwise would he a waste
product of the coal mines. He believed that taxation should be levied
upon every ton of coal less such
small proportions as might be required "directly in operation of the
mines. He thought a very strong
case could be made out for the bo-
nusing of the production of coke.

Agreement With C.P.R. Ratified By Voters.
Company Has Fixed Rate ef Taxation
for Ten Years, but Is net Exempt
Prom School Tax.
Coquitlam, Nov. IL���By ah overwhelming majority of 136 votes the
by-law to ratify the agreement entered into between the council and
the C. P. R. in regard to the taxation of the company's property was
passed here today. The final returns
showed that 142 had voted in favor
of the agreement and 6 against it.
The polling booths were situated
at the schoolhouse on tbe Nortb road
and the Municipal' Hall, New Westminster Junction. Much the heaviest
vote was recorded at the Junction,
where 118 ratepayers voted in favor
of the by-law and 5 against. At ih*
Municipal Hall 24 ballots were cast
for the agreement and 1 against
While the agreement was considered
very favorable to the Interests of tbe
municipality it was not expected that
it would be carried by such a greaf
majority and much satisfaction is felt
at the result. Mr. John Smith acted
as returning officer, and Messrs. O.
Phillips and H. W. Baker aa poll
clerks at the hall and the Junction
By the terms of the agreement the
company is granted a fixed rate of
taxation for the next ten years of
(1.530 a year on 612 acrea of the land
on which It Is to erect its new Pacific Coast terminus. No redaction 1��
allowed ln regard to school taxes,
which the C. P. R. will have to pay
the same as any other ratepayer. On
the large holdings outside the property the company will be taxed on the
ordinary basis.
The passing of the agreement is another step towards the realization of
tbe C. P. R. Company's plans to establish at Coquitlam its western terminus and  repair shops, which  will
be second to none on the continent.
A  strip of lan:l half a Mile wide by-
two miles In length has been acquired
by thc company, and ltr Is estimated
that $7.000,000 will be spent in trackage, shops and equipment.   When finished the new terminus and shoos will
?lve employment to some ��.000 men.
while the company's monthly payroll*
will be approximately $500,000.

official statement given yesterday in

planed on one side only Was free of
duty, while In tne cases mentioned
lumber so imported had not only been
planed cn one side but tampered with
and further manufactured than Is provided for under the Item of tbe tar..
Iff for free entry.
The Minister referred tbe claims-of
the deputation to Um Board of Customs, which was constituted many
years ago for the purpose of deciding
matters of this nature.
The result, waa that the evidence
submitted to the board was considered sufficient tp Justify tbem incoming to the conclusion that it wonld advise the department to notify all cot-
lectors of customs to more Carefully
scrutinize and examine importations,
and where lumber being Imported had

announcement of the selection of Mr. Bonar
Law as leader ot the Unionist party
In England is received with expressions ot approval and high commenda"
tion   by    many    Toronto    taltizens.
Among Canadians who supported the
platform of Hhe  tariff  reformers In
England  during tbe    last  campaign
were Mr. George T. Blackstotk. K.C;
Mr.  A. A.  Pratt,  M.  P.P.  for South
Norfolk, and Mr. A. W. Wright.
Mr. Blackstone said today:
"Mr. Bonar Law is a practical man
of business whose views are strongly,
firmly and enthusiastically held, and
who believes tbat upon  their adoption depends the prosperity and safety of the state.   He is a heard-beaded
debater, alert, tenacious of his point
and thoroughly capable of holding his
own against his adversaries.   His selection is one more evidence if any
were wanting of a great and preponderating influence which Canada now
enjoys  in    England.    Considerations
which influenced the choice of him
were no doabt largely his Canadian
oii&in and  the  fact cf  his  coming
from a country wheie the imperialistic and preferential cause had recently achieved so great a victory and
with which eh is so familiar.
"His elevation to the leadership signifies that tariff reform will occupy
the forentost place in tbe Unionist
programme. Mr. Bonar Law has been
looked upon as the most powerful exponent of Mr. Chamberlain's views
since that great man's enforced retirement I think he will give a good
account of himself."
Mr. A. W. Wright, an ardent tariff
reformer, said: "Of course it Is graining to see a Canadian promoted to
tbe leadership of one of Um greet hie
toric parties of the Empire, a leadership which beam with it the almost
certain succession to the premiership.
On tariff reform nnd Imperial preference be will load rather then Walt and
follow, as Mr. Balfour did. Unjustly.
I think, end with Insufficient; cause,
for Mr. Balfour was always regarded
as something less then wholehearted
in his support of theee two vital end
closely rolgted questions, but no one
will doubt Che new leader's entire devotion to tbem, and these Questions
will decide the next contest In the
Mother Country:. Of fine ability and
with high Ideals, with a splendid imperialism Influencing and determining his attitude on ell questions Mr.
Bonar Law la the men of the hour."
Vancouver, Nov. 12.���\W'.t a rattle and a crash that was heard some
blocks away, the glass awning over
the entrance to the Dominion Theatre, the new movlns picture bouse
which is in course of erection on
Granville street, fell beneath its
heavy burden of sno.v yesterday. Tte
falling glass, weighing several tons,
made a terrific noise when it struck
the pavement, which in common with
the pavements of other streets in the
business section of the city; had been
cleared of snow.
The fact that no person was pass-
| ing at the time was the most remarkable, as it was the most fortunate
feature of the occurrence. During:
church hours pedestrians in the neighborhood were numerous. Several narrow escapes are recorded,, but fatalities were absent.
But for the breaking of the glqss
and of the Sunday calm, and tho consequent startling of near-by residents,
no damage was done.

foreign nags. As compared with the
'figures for the preceding twelve
months the present returns, following
the general movement of shipping,
shows an increase of 105,120 tons as
regards steamers and 3110 tons as re-
yards sail.
The report comments on tho Increasing use of the oil internal com-
bustlcn englncto. During the year
the vessels Vulcanus and Holzapfel
were built. The Vulcanus is a ship
of 1197 tons gross, fitted with Diesel
oil engines. She made severdl short
voyages and also a voyage from Rotterdam to the Black Sea and back.
At present there are building or
about to bo built, with a view of classification in Lloyd's Register, twelve
merchant vessels, which will be fitted with oil engines. The largest of
these vessels will exceed 8000 tons
Local interest is given the report
by comment cn the fact that two
steamers of 15,000 tons each are
building for C. P. R. Pacific service
from Vancouver, and a steamer of 13,-
500 tons for the Union Steamship
Company of New Zealand, also to operate from Vaneouver.
The only people who seem to be
building sailing ships are the Germans, and they go in for large ones.
The report says that a sailing ship
of 3000 tons is building for German
owners with a view to being classed
100 Al.
The society's surveying staff now
consists of 331 officers. The growing
tendency in the direction of widening the frame-spacing of steamers,
dispensing with side stringers anl
making double bottoms more readily
accessible, is receiving tho attention
of the society's technical staff.
There are now recorded ln tho register book 1013 vessels fitted with wireless apparatus and 566 with submarine signalling apparatus.

For Boy  Scouts.
The latest addition to scout kit  is
a cycle stretcher, and Halifax is the
inventor of the new scheme.
Here are two uses to which a cycle
stretcher may be put: To carry provisions to camp and to carry an injured boy, says a writer.
And attemnts I have seen may be
considered fairly successful, so far
as the carrying of prvlsions Is concerned, but by no means safe for the I
transport of the lnlnred. This Is due
to the fact that the two rear rldere
have each a band taken up with holding the stretcher, and therefore only-
one to man��?r�� tk�� bicycle. Thow
who ttaire trier* It Know bow difficult
thla ta, especially to mount ana dismount.
Here ls a new wav of maklne a cy-
e'e stretcher. In which the three cv-
cllsts, who, of course, should be exerts, manage the whole thing comfortably.
The ptre'rhcr L-* "iide lntb<�� usual
wav with two !^'���'���>"���<���, poles. Ea^h of
three hrs a brie tnrrt threat |' It
wl'li a red hot c-Ver, about two
Inches from each end.
Two cross pieces nre needed, one
for each end of the stretcher. Tbat
nt the foot rnd Is about nine inches
long, and has also a hole burnt
through It near the end.
By means of these holes the short
crocs pieces and the roles are securely flyed by a short bit. of rope. The
object of this cross piece Is to give
more room for the patient's feet.
The stretcher ls now suspended ti
the cycles, and each rc.out has both
hands free to manage his cvcle.
On the command (given by one of
the rear cyclists I "Prepare to mount"
each bov puts hla left foot on the pedal in the usual wav.
On the comman-1 "Mount." each
fives a slow shove off with his right
foot, a second shove, and then they
nre un. The leader can easily clear
the parent's feet as he mounts.
On the command "Prepare to dismount." all cenet* pedalling and get
the left foot at its lowest. And at
the word "Dismount" all get off together.    No assistance is needed.
Ropo is passed through the hole at
tbe end of the cross piece, tben. for
further ��ecur!tv. each end of the rft*>"
Is rnsscd ro"nd the r-ross piece In different directions. The two ends are
then together, pointing upwards.
These two ends are finally tied tc
the cmss bar of tbe hlcvcle Ju��t behind the stem. leavIng about six 'In-
cbfs of "plack.f Tn this wav ithn
stretcher is suspended, and not tied
hard up.
The foot of the stretcher Is rlmpU-
tied by rope to the springs beneatl'
the saddle, and here also Is a "slack"
of about three inches.
The wav to fix the stretcher and
mount is this:
The stretcher is laid on the erounil
with a boy on it. The ropes for fl.v
Iim; are tn position. Two scouts lift
the loaded stretcher, and the third
scout secures it to each of the three
cycles In turn, beginning with the
leading cycle.
The cross piece at the head is much
longer. Tt likewise has holes burnt
through it about sixteen inches apart.
These are roped to the poles In the
same way as at the foot-end.
But there Is more about this cross
piece. It projects at each end for six
or seven inches beyond the poles, and
about an inch from each end of a
hole again is burnt through.
It is by means of these holes that
the head-end of the stretcher ia secured to cvcles.
The method  of  fixing Is  most Ira

Irish Nationalist Leader Is Taken te
Task by F. E. Smith for 8peaking
With  fOoubls  Voice."
London, No.v. 12.���The text of a remarkable correspondence between
Mr. John Redmond and Mr. F. E.
Smith regarding the two voices with
which the former speaks on Home
Rule has been Issued. t
Mr. Smith ln a speech not long ago
accused Mr. Redmond of presenting a
Afferent version of Home Rule to
Irish and American audiences to that
which he presented In England. Mr.
Redmond vehemently repudiated this,
whereupon Mr. Smith wrote to him as
"Will you be good enough to Inform me whether you are correctly
reported ln the Dally Independent of
December 0, 189F>. as having said,
'Our principles are easily defineu.
They are the inlependuuce of Ireland
and the civil and religious liberty of
all her sons. . . Ireland for thc
Irish ts our motto, and the consummation of all our hopes and aspirations ls, In one word, to drive English rule, sooner or later, bag and baggage, from our country."
"Wlll you be good enough to Inform me whether you are correctly

said, 'What are our motives and objects? First of all our ultimate gcal

it was ln the days of Hugh O'Neil. ot
Owen Rae, of Emmett, or of Wolfe

��� in charge of their own .affairs.'  '
"Will you be good enough to inform me whether you are correctly

evidently, and on your own admission, spoken with two voices. If lt

for on October 7, 1911, you are reported in the. Morning Poet as having made the following observations.
'We are only asking for the management of our own local, affairs bv an
executive government, which will be
responsible to the nublTc opinion ot
Ireland. We accept jour suj,:\ uiacy,
and we not merely accept it, but we
invite yhii, If -o*y one has any doubt

was that In purely Irish affairs we
should have control of the government of the country in an Irish parliament. In the same way, though not

Winter Pastorate Duties Press Hard
en  McMaster  Men.
Montreal, Nov. 12.���The report of
the Senate of McMaster University
submitted by Chancellor McCrim-
mon and considered by tbe Baptist
Convention, shows that out of 225 undergraduates registered ln arts there
were 44 ministerial students. The
theological professors complained of
the serious drawback many students
experience ln being forced to undertake the duties of student-pastorate
through tho winter, and recommended as a remedy that .there be remuneration for services rendered in the
summer flelds. It was added that the
bequest of the late Allan MacLean,
of the Jarvis Street Church, Toronto
made lt possible now to add $100 to
the remuneration of graduates in arts
in mission fields.
Mrs. McMaster, widow of Senator
McMaster, who founded McMaster
University, and herself founded Moulton College, and who la 92 years ot
age, waa present duiing part of the
educational debate. As she left on

On the other hand, if the youth is

"Mother, give this food to her from

The mother can do ss she likes. She

l'he following is a portion of a
speech made by Lloyd-George ln support of the insurance Bill:

the Bill at Whitefleld's Tabernacle,
Tottefj^affiicwt-road, 0ct' 14- ll wa3

Nevertheless, three young men

Mr. Lloyd-George at the outset of a

misery than any Bill since the abolition of the Corn Laws. It made provision for 15 millions of men and women engaged ^industrial occupations.

"German    officials    stare    at   'you;

who has recently added to his experience by passing through  the custom

A. H. B. Macgowan, M. L. A., proposed the toast, "The Mayor and City
Council and Municipalities." He declared that many years ago he had
been elected a school trustee, and
that this did hlm as much good as
any of the undertakings be had assumed ln later years. He said some
complimentary things about the Hon.
John Robson for the excellent foundation which he had laid for the work
of education in the province. He declared that the IOve of country so
manifect in Canada had stamped this
province as the wost loyal in the
whole  British  Empire.
Mayor Taylor, in responding to the
toast, said there was no investment
a city had which gave better returns
than a good system of education. He
expressed the opinion that the entrance examination to the high school
should be abolished and that the entrance to this institution should be

brief reply.
Mr. Maxwell Smith, responding to
the toast of "Past School Trustees,"
declared that although the school
system of today Is good, there is ample room for improvement, nnd that
while no effort is made to thru! I
criticism on the Department of Education, there is an attempt being
made to haie certain reforms instituted which will be of great good to

" There are few thing. In which women   In   cities  and  town,  are   more
greatly interested than in tbe supply I
of wholesome food. Those who are '���
country brad cam scarcely underatand |
tHa danevra to which people who are
dependent on the market a of the city
tor their tood are exposed, lt is the
fault ot the countrywoman herself lf
the food given to her family is not
wholesome. Her milk and eggs are
fresh. Her bread is home-made from
good flour. Meat, even if scarce, is
sound and fresh, and it Is her own
fault If she has not a supply of vegetables fresh from the garden ln summer, or carefully kept for winter. In
some parts of Canada fruit is scarce,
and Jams, if used, must be Imported,
but that is not the case here. In-
cities, especially large ones, conditions are very different. The public
is dependent on the dealers and manufacturers for the supply of the
tables. If these are honest, and lt all
citizens are well to do, the mechanic
and laborer of the city would live better than the farmer for he has a
wider choice. But unfortunately the
desire for gain leads the manufacturer and dealers to substitute infer
ior materials for those which are
more wholesome but more expensive.
The necessities of the poor force
them to buy the cheap, inferior or
damaged goods. The result is or
would be, if this were aHowed, a
rapid rieteiloraticn of the inhabitants
of cities. Diseases of all kinds follow the use cf unwholesome food
from the unclean or stale milk fed to
babies to the tainted or Improperly
preserved meat eaten by their elders.
For the protection of the national
health most countries have enacted
Pure Food laws, making it an offence
to sell adulterated, unclean or decaying foods. Hut such laws are very
hard to enforce. Seller and buyer often conspire to defeat tlie laws made
for the protection of the people, and
of the authorities is needed to fight
ignorance on the one hand and greed
on the other. In these days of
trusts, great corporations resist nny
Interference with their business, and
it requires great courage to force
them to comply with regulations likely to lessen their profits.
ln the United States the government has in Dr. Wiley, who is in con:
trol of the laws concerning the protection of the people from bad food,
an official who in the pursuit of his
duty fears no man. He has had many
contests with great corporations, but
has never ceased to agitate for reform as long as abuses lasted. His
last great flght was against the use of
benzoate of soda as a preservative.
He found by chemical analysis thst
while this substance gave the appearance of freshness it did not do away
with the dangers of putrefaction. His
decision has, it Is said, been confirmed by German scientists, who formerly believed that the benzoate of soda
could be used without danger.
It ls not a matter of indifference to
Canadians that our neighbors on the
other side of tbe line should have a
man as chief chemist of the department of agriculture who both can and
will prevent manufacturers from adulterating food. Not only do we buy
some of these goods from them but
tho example set by Dr. Wiley is one
tbat it is good for us to follow.
Hitherto there has not been In Canada any such need for strict oversight as there is in the United States
where population in proportion to
producten is very great. But already
the need of stricter supervision in regard to milk is Imperative, and eggs
meat and butter are kept ln cold
storage. Jams are made from fruit
which is of Inferior quail'// ln many
places, and Ice cream Is sold everywhere. There are pure food laws ln
Canada, but If they are strictly en-
fdrced the fact Is not generally
known. It ls far easier to prevent
abuses than to do away with them
when they have taken firm hold.

tenpins did not penetrate for many
years, tbe old game of ninepins being
tbe regulation game until ahout twenty-flve years ago ln the Weat. when
tenpins become known in a half haphazard way, and not until ahout the
middle of the '90s, when a champion
team toured the West and the American bowling congress was originated
in the East waa the real growth of
American tenpins noticed. We bave
records of match games being bowled
ln New York City cn the Knlcken
bocker alleys as early as January 1,
1840, and there are also records te
Washington of games bowled during
the late '50s by members of congress,
the most prominent being Abraham
Lincoln, and lt is the proud boast ol
one of the clubs of the capital city in
the States that they still have !the
actual scores of tbe games rolled by
the martyred president.
Y. M. C. A.'s Approve.
The game has been adopted by business houses to create    a congenial
and social spirit between tbeir large
number  of  employes,  and  lias  been
approved by tbe Y. M. C. A. throughout the country.    Church and social
clubs  have also adopted  the game.
Taking all of these sources together
with the great number of open publlc
bowling alleys, which probably number 60,000 In the United States, the
folowtng of the game of bowling wlll
claim almost 2,000,000 people who enjoy the sport and rivalry ai well as
the general exercise connected with
the game.   Quite sn army of followers but even  that doesn't represent
the following the game has throughout the world, as lt has gained a foot-
bold In England.   SlF Thomas Lipton
is president of the European Bowling
Association, and the game has   been
taken up ln earnest ln England, Philippine Islands, and,    ln fact, almost
exerywhere except In China, this being about the only game or invention
that the yellow men have not claimed as invented by tbem.   In England
It Is still known as cayles and skittles, while ln France as qullles and
loggets, but tn Germany lt la still the
game of ninepins, and  when boiled
down undoubtedly lt would be found
that the bowling game in this country  was adopted  from  the Germans ,
who fathered tne game many centuries ago. and generally the best bowlers in this country Are of German descent, of course, with the regular exceptions.

Tripoli, over which Italy and Turkey are at daggers drawn, ls a picturesque city.
Tarabolos el Gharb���Tripoli of the
West���known to Europeans as Tri-
poli-ln-Barbary, the capital of the
Turkish Vilayet of Tripoli, ls situated
on a promatory which stretches out
into tbe Mediterranean on the north
coast of Africa about south of Malta,
forming a crescent-shaped bay, with
water from fifteen to twenty-four feet
deep. Reefs make out for some distance, creating a natural break-water
beneath their burdens, Arabs, Berbers
Sudanese, Turkish soldiers and many
Jews, with tight trousers and long
loose blue costs. The luggage ls
borne by Arabs, clad ln loose tunics
of brown, with bare legs and arms,
and supporting poles on their shoulders from which the burdens are hung.
The houses, built directly on the
streets, are seldom more than two
storeys high and give but little Idea
of the comfort one sometimes finds
within. The larger and more pretentious are built around a central court
open sometimes, to the sky and always to the height of the building.
and designed to afford as great freedom from heat as possible. The furnishings are a mixture of native products and French cheap furniture.
The Arab at his work sits usually on
the ground or on a low bench, and
In his house the same fashion ls followed.
Among the few Europeans of wealth
residing ln Tripoli    one    finds,    of
course, the same refinement of living
that  exists   elsewhere.    Lights    are
good old-fashioned    kerosene   lamps,
and sometimes one finds candles. The
streets are but    faintly    illuminated
and the shadows ln the narrow thoroughfares  loom  black  and  fearsome
after the setting of the sun.   Though
so  congested, the  streets  are  fairly
clean and are frequently swept,   by
hand, with long bundles   of    twigs
Sanitary    conditions    are   ordinarily
fair, but there are    occasional    out-
bracks of cholera during the summer
months, the last outbreak of this disease being in 1910.    Considering tho
open sewerage and the Oriental    indifference  to  sanitation,  the  health
of thc city ls good    and   Europeans
have little to fear.
Mixed Races.
The population of the city of Tripoli embraces representatives of all
the peoples living on the shores of
thc Medlterrsnean.    The basic population is, of course, native, but this
in itself Is complex and various, the
heirs of the innumerable colonization
and migrations which peaceably    or
in conquest have from tiroe to time
flowed Into the country.    There   are
the Berbers, who lf not th? primitive
were at least very early inhabitants,
blende* perhaps with a faint stream
of the Phoenician and  Hornan  blood
which at one time or anot'ier dominated the seacoast and extended into
the interior;   there are    the    Arabs
had the dog concealed in tbe "parcel,"
which had been "passed."
But these by no means exhaust the
means which women employ in smuggling their pets. They suspend them
ln bags from their necks, under well
buttoned up coats or furs, put them In
big pockets or loose "overcoats,' 'or
carry them ln their muffs, which Is a
trick frequently tried when muffs can
be worn without  exciting  suspicion.

The Italians for years have striven
to entrench themselves in the country by. the establishment of commercial enterprises, and they now practically control the general trade of the
port. The great Banca dl Roma, whic
is reported to have a quasi-governmental status, engages ln banking,
commerce, and trade of every sort,
apparently less with an eye to Immediate profit than to ultimate con;
trol. Its Trlpolltan business for the
past year Is reputed to have shown a
large financial deficit. The exports,

Tbe province of Tripoli comprises

London, Nov. 16.���The days when
bold, bad smugglers ran their boatloads of rum. brandy and tobacco
over from France, into the secret
coves and caves on the English
coasts are long since gone, but the
customs officers still have plenty to
do pitting their wits against smug-
lers as cunning as ever existed In the
old days.
These smugglers are women, and
the contraband upon which they exercise their wits most to evafl* the customs is dogs, though, of course it is
the quarantine law that causes all
the Trouble. The devices which they
adopt are as Ingenious as they are
amazing, and the customs officers can
tell some extraordinary stories of the
ruses Of women to smuggle their pets
from France Into England. By concealing them ln pockets ln their underclothing they often succeed ln

I Am Willing To Prove
I Can Cure You
To That End I Am Giving Away $10,000
Worth of Medicine
In order to show beyond ell doubt I
that 1 am in possession of a medicine
that will cure kidney trouble, bladder I
trouble or rheumatism, I will this year give
away ten thousand dollars' worth of this
medicine, and anyone suffering lrom these
diseases can get a box ol it absolutely free.
All that is necessary is to send me your address.
I don't mean that you are to use a part of
it or alt of it and pay me if cured. I mean
that I will send you a box of this medicine
absolutely free of charge? a gift from me to
the Uric Acid sufferers of the world, so I can
show them where and how they may be cured.
I will not expect payment for this free medicine, nor would I accept it now or later if
you sent it. It is free in the real meaning of
the word.
For twenty-five years���a quarter of a century���I hare been trying to convince the public that I have something genuine, something
better than others have for the cure of stubborn, chronic rheumatism, for torturing kidney backache, for annoying calls to urinate.
But it is hard to convince people���they try a
few things unsuccessfully and give up all hope
and refuse to listen to anyone thereafter.
Happily, I am in * position now to demonstrate to sufferers at my own expense that I
r je * n,ed,ci'�� that cures these diseases.
I don t ask them to spend any money to find
out; I don't ask them to believe me, nor even

When interviewed on Monday last,
Mr. Mercer stated .that they arrived

made up for this by having a splendid

They journeyed all over England and

taken  was  principally  on  behalf   of
business, so far as Mr. Mercer was
concerned, and he states he was very
successful    ln   hts   efforts,    notwithstanding the fact that, owing to the
German   was   scare   and the   great
strikes which took place in England
whilst ho was there, capital was very
chary,  especially   as  stocks  dropped
very    consideraly    and    were   practically unsalable.    Never, ln the his-

land are very keen indeed on Hritish

that a number of timber propositions
which have been placd on tUe market recently have not; been up to the
standard.      The   people   of   the  old
country  who have   money  to   invest
are anxious to secure mortgagjs pure

very potent factor in influencing British Investors. They look upc" the ac-1
tions of the C. P. R. 'as being along
the right lines. Where the C. P. K.
goes ln they feel they cannot make
any mistake, as this company has
been so successful and is so well
known for Its foresight, that it ls conceded that any community which they
decide to locate in must advance
quickly, and having In view the large
plans which the C. P. R. have announced for Coquitlam, it is believed
that it will become ono of the largest
Industrial spots not only on the Paciflc Coast but throughout Canada.
A large number of brokers in London have become interested in Coquitlam lands and much will, be accomplished through these offices ln
the next few months. Mr. Mercer
concluded negotiations for the handling of his firm's holdings in London
and other important cities in England
and expects some good business to result this winter.
ln Eastern Canada, Vancouver is
attracting considerable attention, snd
no other town on the Paciflc Coast
is so much thought of as Vancouver,
and Coquitlam, being- part of Greater
Vancouver, is receiving its proportion of attention. Seeing that Greater Vancouver, including the area of
land from English Bay right through
to the Pitt River, does not cover so
large an area as Seattle at the present time, there ls no question in the

The work Is only preliminary to the

An eminent eastern landscape
architect has already made an inspection of the townsite with a view of
familiarizing himself with the contours and general surroundings before platting it on artistic lines. There
will be many squares, crescents and

publlc parks. Only a portion of the
townsite, or about 2000 acres, will be

25-foot lots, there wlll be over 20.000
lots. No standard size of lots, however, has yet been adopted.

New Westminster ever points with
pride to her splendid fresh water
harbor, and has for many years
dreamed of the day when it would be
crowded with shipping. That dream
will-come true ln time, but not by
dreaming on the part of her citizens.

Britain'. Sympathy I.   All  With   the
Subjects of King Victor Emmanuel.
What will Russia, France, England.
Austria, or Germany say or do ubout
Italy's expedition to Tripoli, is now
the   question    which    the    European
press are considering.      Perhaps the
most thoughtful and  judicial  answer
iiven  we  find in  the  Vcssische  Zei-
tung  (Berlin), a safe Liberal  organ,
wliich always speaks with full knowledge   and   deliberation.     "The   diplomatic  position  is  favorable  to  Italy
on  tho whole"  we are  told,  and   a
survey of the horizon shows that the
Ottoman   Empire   has   no   protection
igainst "the bolt that descended upon
*ier from  th e blue."      These   words
may  appear   strange  to   those   who
recognize that Germany  has  always
���limed and is still aiming ut being a
Mohammedan   power:    that   England
has over 02,000,000 Mohammedan subjects  In   India,  and   not    to   talk   of
Egypt;   that  France   Is a Mohammedan power ln Algeria, and Austria in
the Balkans.    Even  today the dread
of a "Holy War" extending from the
Himalayas to the Straits of Gibraltar
is not spoken of as fantastic. How
then can the Mohammedman Empire
be permitted to suffer such a real
spoliation as tbe loss of Tripoli by
so weak a power as Italy? The editor of the Vosslsche Zeltung thinks
that ln the first place Russia has
too much to do to Interfere, and we
"Russia haB enough trouble already among Asiatic peoples, and is
too busy to Intervene. She seeB that
there is good as well as evil in lhe
turn things are taking in Tripoli. A
little bleeding of Turkey accomplished by someone else, ao that it did not
drain the Ottoman Empire tntirely
of life, would delight the Russians,
The unclosing of the Black Sea would
be welcome."
France's   View.
Hrance takes the affair lightly,
"letting out a good-natured guffaw."
As wc are told:
"Mr. de Selves, with charming
courtliness, says to Mr. Tittonl, the
Italian Ambassador in Paris: 'Be
good enough to help yourself!'
France is pledged by treaty to support Italy's claim, and, in exchange
for Italy's assurance that sh3 would
not Interfere ln Morocco, promised
not to oppose Italian schemes concerning Tripoli. Now the Morocco
fruit ls ripe for France. As a logl
cal consequence Italy grabs the Tripoli apple. It grabs all the more
greedily from a dread of France's
growing power In North Africa. ��� On
reaping her Morocco harvest, France
has no objection to Italy reaping hers
ln Tripoli."
As for England's silent indifference,
this writer confidently assures us:
"England was prepaid for her present kindly attitude toward Italy by
the support she received from the latter against Germany at the Xlgeciras
Conference.       Her     Mediterranean
Treaty with France was made with a
view to Italy's claims ln Tripoli. It
Is true the Liberal press ln England
howl out a little against Italy���'Such
an unheard-of thing!���In time of
peace, too! What are we coming
to?' The Liberal Government does
not trouble Itself about the matter.
Italy haB nothing to fear in this quarter."
Austria ls a little fluttered, and appeals to St. Florian, one of the patron
saints of the country, who is invoked
ln time of flre. "Holy Florian, save
me, my neighbor's house is on flre!"
But "Austria-Hungary, .we may be
sure, would not <'o anything to strain
those ties of the Triple Alliance
which bind her to tlaly."
The attitude taken by Germany is
equally clear, says this writer, who
then proceeds to hedge and talk
vaguely about Germany's desire for
peace. I The whole paragraph ls
worth quoting:
"The German Empire ls closely allied with  the Italian   kingdom,   and
does  not  desire   that   the   political
bonds that unite her with that country, as with Austria-Hungary, should
j be broken.   The German Empire ls al-
��� so on friendly terms with Turk#y, ln
j which country she has many important business Interests, and would see
j with keen regret any partitioning up
of Turkish possessions.   Thirdly, aad
in conclusion, the desire of Germany,
as has  been   proved   anew   by   the
events of the last few   months, i��
for peace in Europe.     Hence arise*
her wish  (and her efforts will back
her up)  that the Turko-Itallan conflict, so far as diplomatic methods can

Norway and Sweden Aak Fra*. Entry
of Wood Pulp.
Washington, Nov. 10. ��� Governments of Europe are claiming tbe
treaty right or the readmlsslon into tbe United States of wood pulp
and other paper. Norway and Sweden, and It ia understood, Germany,
have formally invoked the most favored nation clause of their respective commercial treaties with this
country by reason of the fact that
wood pulp and Its products are now
coming across the border from Canada Into the United States free of
import charges.
The Secretary of State, the Treasury Department, and the Attorney-
General are considering the matter,
which soon will be laid before the
President. If the point Involved ls
an interpretation of treaty rights
the problem will not be referred to
Congress, but will be solved by the
executive, although lt is admitted
that the importers may throw the
question into the courts if the president's decision is advqerse.
Canada enjoys this tariff advantage
under Section* 2 of the reciprocity
agreement. This section v.-as not dependent upon concurrent action by
Section 2 provides tbat wood pulp
cut from lands on the products of
which 'there .iwere no restrictions,
and paper manufactured from sucb
wood pulp should be admitted in to
the United States free.
During the last few weeks a number of Importers of paper have claimed free entry at the customs house
on the Atlantic coast.

Bank of Montreal!
The season has arrived when
there will be many occasions to
don correct evening attire, and no
man would think of placing himself out of harmony with his surroundings at a social event by appearing in anything but a DRESS
Suit made-expressly for himself.
Some men appear ungainly, out
of place and not a whit attractive
in a Dress Suit, but that is because, it waa not made to their
measure by a tailor personally acquainted  with their  requirements.
Consult me at once about your
Dre38 Suit. I make them correct
in every way and BECOMING.
