lt was thought at first that Mr.
Cochrane meant that the steameris
should run down the Notaway river.

size would requite a tremendous expenditure.

Exchange  Announced  ao Based    On
California Plan.
Victoria, Jan. 17.���Mr. R. MrWlna-
low, B. S. A., provincial horticulturist, haa Just returned (rom the representation ot British Columbia at the j
annual conference ot Washington
State agriculturists held this year at
Clarkston, on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday laat
The most Interesting feature of this
convention, Mr. Winslow reports, was
the announcement of the completion
of the arrangements for the getting
ln operation of an exchange for the
handling and marketing of the fruit
of all the affiliated associations of the |
Pacific Northwest states, including
the Hood River, Rogue River and Yakima sections, this exchange being
baaed on the California plan. It is
expected that this exchange will handle something over eight thousand
carloads of fruit next season, or more
than half the crop of the Pacific
Northwest. With the organisation
there ls no doubt that the growers
of the neighboring states to the south
will make an even more aggressive
and effective endeavor to secure possession of the western Canadian markets, and herein ls found a conspicuous object lesson of the urgent necessity for British Columbia fruit
growers adopting some similarly systematic and practical scheme of cooperative handling of tbeir product.
The exchange now arranged for by
the neighboring American growers is
the result of three years' organization
activity. During the course of the
Clarkson convention many excellently
practical addresses were delivered by
experts ln the several specialities. Mr.
Winslow contributing a short talk on
tbe progress of horticulture ln this
province. It Is satisfactory to note
that British Columbians are ahea 1 ot
their neighbors to the south in several ways, in having a more effective
and practical horticultural system for
one thing, and for another having a
standard apple box for all Canada.
The southern growers are now reco-
mending the adoption of a standard
Northwest apple box, which will be
virtually the same as that of Canada.

New Way of Shipping Prisoners in
Foreign Soil.
Victoria, Jan. 1/.���A man of re-
"ou'ree and originality is Chief Constable Docksteader, of the provincial
police, whose district is in the Boundary, and who recently accomplished
the arrest of the prisoner Alexander,
now appearing ln a Spokane court on
proceedings for extradition here to
face trial on a charge of stealing $475
from Mr. Gorman West. Alexander
was arrested "across the line" and lt
was necessary to deliver him at Spokane as expeditiously as possible. The
chief constable had the alternative of
an eighty-mile stage trip of considerable difficulty and offering many opportunities tor the prisoner's escape,
or taking train to Spokane direct���
the railway line, however, leading
through a neck of Canadian territory,
upon which Alexander might take it
into his head to defeat Justice by declaring himself no longer under the
Jurisdiction of the officers having him
In charge. Mr. Docksteader solved
the difficulty. He had the American
officer, the prisoner and himself sealed up in a chartered freight car, and
then they went through "foreign territory" ln bond���and the situation was
saved !

trials of tbe Orion to be all that waa
desired, and it is further gratifying to
know that notwithstanding the increase of the power of attack, neither
the defensive efficiency nor the speed
of the ships bas been adversely affected. The newer ships, ln addition
to mounting ten of the 13.5-inch guns,
will have more powerful torpedo-repelling guns than any of their predecessors, and these, moreover, will be
so at ranged as to enable them to be
effectually protected behind armour.

built by the Fairfield Shipbuilding &

the Australia, built by Messrs. John

by the builders of the ship. Tbe two
latter vessels are being built, under
admiralty supervision, to tbe order
and at the expense of the colonies,
and they will serve as flagships fo."
the units of the Paciflc fleet, to be
maintained by the respective governments for whom the vessels are being
constructed. The colonial ships are
of the Indefatigable class, their displacement being 18,800 tons (see tn-
glneerlng, page 70 ante.). The Princess Royal is of tbe same type as tbe
Lion, for which also Mess:s. Vickers,
Ltd., have provided the machinery.

tbe greatest interest, as the ship ls

cruiser of the class���the Queen Mary

works of the Palmer Iron & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., Jarrow-on-Tyne, and a

a succession of these vessels bave

In this respect. Indeed, It might be
said of almost all our ships, that
periodically there seems to have been
exercised, voluntarily or compulsorily,
a determination to reduce si/.e, and it
haB not infrequently happened that in
this reduction gun power has suffered; that, alike with battleships,
armoured cruisers, scouts an.l destroyers, during the last few years, each
successive ship has grown, so that
heavier guns might be Installed. The
upward trend continues. The btgher
results are achieved with a surprisingly small addition to dls; iacement,
without any diminution in s;��eJ, and
with a com; arati.cly small jjgiiunta-

To   Be   Recommended by   the United
States Postmaster General In
Report to Congress.
Washington, Jan. 17.���Postmaster-
General Hitchcock, wbo last night
gave out a statement saying he would
recommend to congress the government ownership and operation pf all
telegraph lines, conferred" with President Taft on the matter this morning.
President Taft is opposed to government ownership of telegraphs, and
before this cession ends will so state
in a message to congress.
The pt onoancement in favor of government owncrehlp and operation of
telegraph lines as an adjunct of tbe
post office department stirred official
Washington today as few administrative acts have ln recent ydais. The
postmaster general's statement was
news to the White House and Is said
to have caused the greatest surprise
The most generally discussed of all
the reports early today was one that
pressure might have been brought to
bear on Mr. Hitchcock to bake tbe
recommendation. So far the matter
has not progressed beyond a declaration by the postmaster general that
he would make such a recommendation to congress, with a report bv him
giving reasons for the proposed acquisition of tbe telegraph lines.
Btrange Tttrah lit ts* South  Pacific
There is a body of land in the South
Pacific Ocean. 15 miles south of New
Zealand, known as Stewart Island.
This island, with the group of rocky
land specks that surround it, is the
home of a marvelous migrant, the
short-tailed petral. a brownish-bUrk
bird about the size of an English
wood pigeon. It is popularly known
���throughout Australasia as the mutton
bird, because of a faint resemblance
between its eookpd flesh and mutton.
At certain times of the year the
mutton birds are snld in large quantities throughout Australia and Nuw
Zealand, for they are esteemed a
delicacy by many people. The eanture
and preparation of the young birds for
market form, the staple industry ol
the southern Maoris.
It is a wonderful sight to see clouds
of birds making for Stewart Island
for the nesting season. They come almost all together, flocks of hundreds
of thousands darkening the skies for
several successive days. The newly-
arrived birds, whic'i return to the islands generally about September 25,
never more than a day or so later,
-spend the first few days after their
arrival in fixing up and cleaning out
the old nests where they nested last
year. These nests are holes in the
When the nests are cleared out the
renovated homes are lined with leaves.
During the cl^n^ing and nest-making,
which is Hone !>y both male and female, the 'bird- yo without food. Then
they flock oltt'to sea, catching fish till
about November 25, when the laying
of eggs commences. So ..onderfully
is lhe homing instinct <7 sloped in
the mutton bird that each pair of
birds rear their young in the same
nest year after 'year.
The 'female 'birds all lay on or about
the -same day and at the game time.
Eadh hen bird lays one large white
���egg with a semi-transparent shell,
wMich is hatched in about four weeks.
At flrst the -young bird is a mere ball
of down and quite helpless. It remains in the nest till about the beginning Of April, by which time it is
enormously fat.
The old bird -stops feeding the young
Vird about the middle of April, and
the youngster te soon driven irom tke
nest by hunger in search of food, to
offer itself a helpless sacrifice to its
Maori destroyer, for it leaves Uie nest
tftiite unable to 'fly and flops fatly
afcout. It is at this stage of its existence that the young mutton birds are
caught for the Australian market, fot
though the birds in the nest are keenly relished by Maoris, who salt them
and send them to their frineds as s
rare delicacy, they are much too rank
then for the European palate.
About the midde df April the old
mutton birds migrate to the north.
The young ones follow as soon ss they
ere able to fly. About the end ol Msy
thousands of young ones may be seen
flapping clumsily round snd round
the islands learning te fly before embarking on tbeir flrst gseat migration.
In s day or ap thsy wing their *ta*r*
strongly northward ta tbe wska oi
their parents, those that here escaped the grest annual slaughter, which
commences some weeks actors this.
Tbe mutton bird islands ses claimed
by different Maori families, who during April and the early part of May
go and ii-ve upon these small tempest
swept dots of esrth rocks IA tke grest
southern Pacific.

The announcement from Vancouver,
*ays the Ottawa Free Press, that Mr.
F. C. Blair, the special commissioner
of the immigration branch, has reported against any importation andJ
ported against any important relaxation of the regulations governing the
admission of Hindus into Canada, is
only what might have been expected.
It does not require a visit to Hi ltish
Columbia to grasp the depth of the
importance which the people of that
.province place ui.cn the necessity for
Iteeping this "a white Canada." It is
part of the daily creed of each of
.them, and no political party, whether
Liberal or Conservative, which proposed any lowering of the barriers
which now, partially at least, act as
a deterrent to Asiatic immigration,
.could live for a month once the people
had a chance to pass their verdict.
Already, we are told that one
quarter of the population of British
Columbia is Asiatic, the Chinese, of
��oi��rse, in the majority, but with a
goodly sprinkling of Asiatics and seme
5000 Hindus. Every one of these acts
as a factor in lowering the style of
Jiving and keeping down the rate of
There is this difference between the
Chinese on the one hand and the
Japanese oh.the other, that whilst
the Chinese are aliens In every sense
of the word, the Japanese are the
allies of our Empire and that the
Hindus are citizens of that Empire.
But the people of British Columbia
Teply that this is merely sentiment,
that they will not be bound by sentiment, and.tjiat It makes no difference
Jto them whether the immigrant be
Chinese, Japanese or Sikh, they do
.not want them at any cost.
Th�� fact that a Hindu has fought
for the Empire and the flag In India.
the feoudan or China plays no part In
ithe attitude of the Hritish Columbian.
It is enough that tlie Sikhs are not
white, and there ls a practically unanimous demand that their numbers
Should not be increased. It is doubt-
lessivery cruel that the Hindus, who
suv now in Canada, should be deprived of the company of their wives
and children, bnt, despite the sympathy of Toronto "Imperialists," the
people of the Paciflc province say:
-Where Is tfcritf ^rfcrifince ? We did
not ask them to come here.   K they
are not satisfied, 1st, ths* go horns. '
It Is a very grave problem, not only,
for Canada, but for tbs British Empire as well. Neither Canada, Australia nor South Africa wsnts ths
Hindus, yet they sre all thrss anxious
to trade with India. What chance of
success wlll ther�� bs of trade so long
as ths self-governing dominions debar
the human beings ot India ? And
what effect wlll a continuance of a
policy of exclusion have upon the
already excited publlc mind of India?
It will require all the diplomacy of
the Borden cabinet to pod a solution.

Reeve Weart's Address.
Reeve Weart in his address to the
council said:
"It gives me pleasure to welcome
you at this our first meeting. I am
pleased at the return of three members of my last year's council and 1
wish to record a word as to the loss
of three valued members, who went
down to defeat, in stating that eacn
of these faithfully discharged their
duties during 1911. In their places,
Burnaby has returned three new men,
who, I trust, will prove to be valuable
councillors bringing, as they do, new
blood and energy to  the board.
"I congratulate you all on your return and the confidence in this and
last year's councll by the electors in
pronouncing in favor of the bylaws
submitted for their verdict, showing
that the generous but careful, policy
of development adopted in 1911 and
proposed for 1912 has met with general approval  .
"You will, during the year, be asked to consider and if deemed advisable to adont measures to extend
the public lighting service, increase
the polic* service, the reappointment
of our police magistrate on a salary
instead of fees incident to his office,
and the acquisition of public parks
or recreation grounds and fire protection. Also a careful consideration of
the contract system and the adoption
at the earliest date of a semi-monthly
pay-day ain da scale of wages which
wlll be fair to the workers having due
regard to the higher cost of living,
encouriaging the municipal employees
to establish a fund which may be
used in the case of accident or sickness to pay the loss, sustained or
suffered by the men or such portion
thereof as may be determined. Also
to obtain a blanket accident , policy
of insurance covering the whole population, which will, in the case of
accident, afford a measure of relief
to the unfortunate.
Reports from All  Departments.
"I would request that your first
act be a resolution asking the chiefs
of all departments to report fully at
the next meeting the requirements
of each as to equipment, service or
otherwise, so that this council m.iy be
fully in touch with each as to the
number employed, duties of each and
the enumeration paid for services
"You will be asked to revise the
general contract form, and to insert
a clause that all contractors must
apply to the hall for men before they
will be permitted to employ nonresidents.    To carefully consider   the
expenditure of the 1912 roads aad
sidewalks by-law money, so that ths
meet good may be dsrlvsd by ths
greatest number. Also what possible
steps can be tanas towards transportation for ths relist of our people.*-

Game of'91
tt was during my second year at the
University of M. tbat the strange case
of wbat bas since been called "Merl-
weather's ghost'' occurred there.   Th<i
excessively. Be got so at last tbat
nobody dared speuk to blm about
Tom's action for fear of receiving '���'
rebuff. Toward tbe last we all let
him alone.
Five days before tbe game Oummer-
ton, seeing thut Tom wss half the
time absent from practice and constantly breaking tbe training rules,
made an effort to Induce BUI to take
his place on the team. But BUI waa
Inexorable, and the captain bad to give

ngaln ever since. Whenever I go back
to tbe college tbs following dialogue
Invariably tskes place:
"What was yonr visasr I tm asked,

time of that great football game In
which Meriweatber figured so strange-

"I snw tbe game."
That's quite enough to collect a num-
ter of undergraduates who listen In
rapt attention to my account of ths
Tbe spirit of football was rampant
that year. It seemed that all we went
to college for was to play football. At
least tbe biggest snd strongest men
were ln for football, and the rest of
mmm was * Bousma chssu.
us were absorbed In what absorbed
thorn. There was the usual training
and practice, followed, or. rather. Intermingled, wltb a series of games,
| beginning with our least Important antagonists, to end with a match game
with B. college, at that time sporting
thu most Important team outside of the
'.three largest American colleges.
���I Of course everything focused on tbls
final game. (Jumnierton of "02 wns
captain, and we had a celebrated ex-
Yale man for trainer. 1 think s good
deal of tbe Interest was excited by
tbe entbuslssm of tbe captain, and
some ot tho fellows declared that If
his team didn't win tue game with B.
be wouldn't survive the defeat
The Meriweatber twins were 'n college at (be time. You've beard of
���Tom Meriweatber. haven't you���the
big football plnyer or tbat time? Well,
be wax tbe Meriweatber tbat figures
In thU story, er bis brother BUI. or
Tom's ghost; nobody could find out
tben. and nobody seems to hsve been
able to find out since. Both boys were
big fellows. Few could tell them apart
and tbe only physical difference between them wss that Tom wss a trifle
more mnsNtve than hts brother. But
there were lots of differences outside
of the physical composition of the
men. Tom wouldn't study and wns
���devoted to athletics. BUI wouldn't
hnve anything to do with athletics and
���was u "t>onec." The captain wanted
both men on tbe team of 'HI. but be
-couldn't Induce Rill to leave his book*
for prm-tit-e. Gummerton would hiive
taken him on even during the Inst
���week without any training, but BUI
-couldn't ht* persuaded.
The rnptnln had no end of trouble
with Tom .Merlwenther on account of
ji girl he was Infatuated with. Betty
Williams, an Incorrigible flirt, who
���played with tbe big fellow ns a sea-
*nnu would play wltb a harpooned
whale. When time came for practice
���Tom would he missing. Where was
he? Nobody knew except that he
wasn't on hand. He bad taken a trtln
for the next station above, where Ml**
Williams lived. The worst of It was
Hint Betty's best man wns a B. man.
nnd she sympathized with thf B.'s In
*he coming game. Those of us who
l;new best believed thnt Betty, knowing Tom to he our main reliance, was
trying to prevent his efficiency by
keeping 1>!iu away from practice She
. ,was also always persuading him to
eat and drink what was disallowed In
Bill Merlweather having more Influence with his brother than any one
else���the affection between twins Is
notorlous-we tried to get Bill to keep
Tom nw.ny from Betty till after the
big pnnie, Rill did everything he
cotVd In the matter. ' He argued with
Torn, scolded him. told htm the girt
was fooling him and If he didn't get
owny from her he vouM surely come to
prier. He wouldn't flnd out what her
. object wus till the game had been play-
Tom Meriweatber. Tbe only question
remaining waa whether Betty Williams would keep Tom twty from the
final game.
Every effort was made to-prorlds for
this contingency both by keeping a
watch on Tom and having tbs next
best outside man. Watkins of *98,
ready to take bis place In cue Tom
was filched away by the girl. Of
course that meant defeat, but there
must be some oue to fill the *��� p.
I wai one of tbe men s "pointed to
watch Tom Meriweatber frou the
time be got out of bed on the morning
of tbe match game till the fight was
on. I arose at 0 and was In his room
by 7. The bird. or. rather, tbe winged
monster, had flown. 1 learned tbat he
bad left the evening before, but no
one knew wbere be bad gone. When
I reported the fact to Uummerton be
looked aa tf be bad been struck by a
bullet "It's all up with us," be said.
"She's got him and will keep blm till
It's too late for him to play tbe game."
I asked tbe captain tf we hadn't better
see Bill about it. und he said no. Bill
couldn't do anything: we'd better keep
away from blm; tbe matter only Irritated blm.
Oummerton notified Watkins that be
would probably bave to play. The
managers discussed the mutter as to
wbat to do to get bold of Tom Meriweatber, but nobody was willing to go
to Betty Williams' bome and drag tbe
big fellow out. There were hopes that
be would turn up at tbe last moment.
Tbe game was to begin at 3 o'clock,
but could be staved off till balf past 3.
Tbere was a train coming from Boon-
ton, ten miles up the road, where tbe
Delilah lived, due at our station at a
quarter pnst 3. I. with two otber fellows, was at tbe station all tbe morning watching tbe arrival of every down
train. But at noon we gave lt up and
went to dinner.
At 3 o'clock there waa the usual roaring on the field, tbe crowds on tbe
side of esch college shouting themselves hoarse before the game began.
Tom had not arrived. Watkins wss
lu harness and expecting to play. Uum-
��� merton was In detipair. He didn't call
tbe game till 3i2.1. As the meu were
lining up the big mnn cnuie over the
flelds and on to tbe ground. Tbe singular part of It was that he hod hts
rpotball clothes on. 1 soy it was sin
gulnr because be was supposed to have
come from tbe last train.
1 tell you there was n rousing cheer
on tbe pert of our fellows when we
saw him. Gummerton gave a yell like
a crazy man. Merlweather dropped ln
his place ln the line, and the game be
1 remspnber when Tom appeared I
looked about for bis brother to see
bow Tom's appearance would affect
him. I lookM everywhere, but no BUI
Merlwenther could 1 see. 1 mention
this partly because I thought lt singular that Bill should not attend the
game ond partly becauae It bears on
the mystery. Inquiries Ister snowed
that BUI wasn't In bis room st tbe
time tbe game was played. But I'm
getting ahead of my story.
I'm not going to describe the game,
for beyond the fact tbat It was won
almost exclusively by Merlweather'*
work It has notblng to do with tbe
strange aspects of the case. When our
men were making their last count a
few minutes before the end of the last
half I saw a man Jump tbe fence on
tbe otber side of the gridiron and say
something to the crowd tbere which
produced a commotion. Then a shudder cume over tbe assembled multitude.
Tbe train due nt 8:1(1 from up tbe
road had fallen through a bridge three
miles from Boonton. nnd more than
twenty people had lieeti killed.
The ground was cleared in nn Instant, many of those present making
for the acene of the accident I went
to ray room to get an overcoat, for I
had been chilled standing In tbe November wind, and. coming out Into the
dormitory boll, met a memlwr of my.
class, who. with a halt scared look on
his face. said:.
"What's this about Tom Merlweather being killed In tbe railroad accident?"
"Tom Merlwenther! Wby. he has
just won the game."
I never like to tell this part of the
utory. for 1 expect nlways to lie guyed
when I do so. Nevertheless I'm going
to tell it ns I heard It nnd as It was
universally believed nl th�� time. It
seems that BUI Merlwejiiher during
the morning had gone up to Boonton to
try to bring Tom hack In Ume for the
t:ime. They were coming down on the
wrecked train. When (he eiiwh mm?
Bill had pot ut�� from the sent on which
ihey had Iteen sit!lng- s'.de by side to
ixx n gin** of water Tom wns mashed
Into a Jell?    Bill was nnhnrt.
Now. then, you've c��t nil I know
about It. Both brothers were on the
train when It was wrecked. It Isn't
likely that P'll would leave his dead
l.rolht"- to play the game. And how
tould Tom have played It. a corpse?"
