Throughout last night and today

There ia little doubt that Kearny

could reach them the hydro-aeroplane

It was thought 'by the officiaU of

Just what the actual change means
can only be Imagined by a visit to thc
new plant of the company located on
Clarkson street.
Wiremen have been at work for
several weeks tracing the existing
wires and attaching now ones connecting with the new switchboard. Miles
and miles of wire, run in small cables,
have hdd to be strung, tbe numbers on
the new switchboard having to correspond with those on the old.
At 11 o'clock Saturday evening, at
a time when 'business rests from Its

The School Lunch.
Sandwiches ure the standby for tlle
school lunch. Variety iu the kinds of
bread used Is most desirable. Nearly
every kiud of ment Is usuhle.-and tliere
ure also the various pastes mnde /rom
all sorts of scraps and leftovers In the
meat line, put tbrougb the chopping
machine nnd seasoned to suit the chil
dreu's tastes. Cold chicken, roust beef,
lamb, ham and even tblu slices of beef,
steuli (wrapped In paraffin paper) belp
to udd to tbe variety und are always
acceptable. It is a good Idea to save
all the paper from the cracker boxes
and use lt to wrap the different articles
in, so tbut tbey do aot taste of oue another.
A most delicious filling for prntinm
sandwiches Is made of cream cheese to
wblcb hnve been added some chopped
nut meats, olives or n wee bit of green
pepper. For another good filling take
Ibe yolks of bard hulled ei;gs, add pep
per and suit snd a tiny pinch of curry
powder. Mix to a paste and spread
rather thick. These mny be varied by
a little catsup or sauce of uny kind In-
stead of the curry.
Hard boiled ejres from wblcb the
yolks have been removed may be stuff
ed with spinach, seasoned to taste or
with chopped nut meats, cold ham ot
celery dressed with either mayonnaise
or French dressing Another way is to
stuff them with chipped ham mixed
with a bit of the yolk and vinepnr

Always when she was tried before the

like thee;, which were necessary and
frequent rt��ms in her romantic and

First Lord Not on Best of Terms With
Sea  Lords, and  Rumor Says All
May  Resign.
London, Dec. 15.���When RL Hon.
Winston Spencer Churchill took control of the Admiralty as First Lord,
there waa aome speculation aa to how
a minister of his enterprising and pugnacious temperament, would work
with the sea lords, who have been accustomed to dominate in professional
The resignation of the First Sea
Lord. Vice-Admiral Sir Francis <J.
liridgeman, whom Prince Louis of
Brldgeman-Bridgeman, whom Prince
Louis of Battenberg succeeds, is followed by rumors that all the sea lords
uay resign. A question of veracity
between tbe First Lord of the
Admiralty and Vice-Admiral Bridge-
man-Brldgeman, which haa arisen, has
caused a sensation.
Mr. Churchill, pressed by Lord
Charles Beresford in the House of
Commons for an explanation, declared
that Vlce-Admlral Brldgeman-Bridge-
man's retirement was due solely to
his health and on Mr. Churchill's request. Wben the Vlce-Admlral wae
aaked by a reporter If be bad retired
on account of bia health, he replied:
"My answer ls In the negative."
The friction is believed to have
been begun by Mr. Churchill Insisting upon directing the details of the
laat maneouvres, against the advice
ot tbe sea lords. There la considerable opposition to Prince touts of Battenberg holding tha hlghaat position
tn the navy on tbe same grounds
that tbe army long opposed tba Duke
ot Cambridge having the highest command, namely that lt was given to him
because he was a member of the
Royal family. Instead of for professional competency.
The First Lord and the Sea Lords
unquestionably are antagonistic. Some
Liberals even express fear that the efficiency of the navy may be Jeopardized on thla account.       ���

Qirl of Fifteen, Then Commits Suicide
���Had Delusions Regarding Wife's
Belleville, Ont., Dec. 15.���B. D. Will
man, a Rawdon township farmer,
aged 38, committed suicide this after
noon after attempting to murder his
15-year-old bride of a year. The latter
ia so badly wounded that the doctors
say she cannot recover.
Wfllman had been acting strangely
and harbored a delusion that his
wife's relatives were hostile to him.
This Is supposed to have prompted
his action. Saturday he borrowed a
neighbor's, shotgun saying he wished
to shoot some weasels. '
About 4:30 o'clock Willman entered
the bedroom where hls wife was lying
ill and without warning fired point
blank at her, Inflicting terrible injuries.
Apparently thinking he had killed
his wife. Willman went upstairs, reloaded the gun, tied a string to the
'rigser and discharged the gun with
his foot.    He died Instantly.
Mra. Willman'a mother, who was at
the barn, heard the shots and rushed
to the house and summoned help.
Coroner Algers. of Stirling, was notl
fled, and to him Mrs. Willman, al
though mortally wounded, was able to
tell the story of her husband's deed
An inquest will be held. Willman
was well known, having lived In Rawdon township all his life.
Pennsylvania  Coclety   Makes  Presentation���First  Time  Ever Given
to Non-Citizen of U. S.
New Ycrk. Dec. 15.���In commemorating the 125th anniversary of the
framing of the constitution of the
United States, the Pennsylaviila Society held its fourteenth annual dinner here tonight, with Bt. Hon. James
Bryce, the re-tiring British ambassador, as the guest cf honor.
Attorney-General G. W. WIckersham  wa3 toastmaster and  delivered
of the votes of that body wlll-be'necessary for the adoption of an agreement for arbitration.
So far as could be learned today no
plans are underway for an attempt to
repeal the toll exemption provision to
which Great Britain lias directed Its
chief protest. Although that course
was recommended b.v aecretary of
War Stlmpson ln his annual report,
senators who were strongly identified
with the fight against exemption la3t
August stated today that tliey knew of
no contemplated bill or amendment
to repeal that portion of the law.
A strong sentiment exists In the
senate in favor of a final submission
to arbitration of the respective rights
of Great Britain and the United
States at the canal. Leading senators
who Indorsed this sentiment, however, expressed the belief today that
it would be impossible to secure even
a majority of the senate In support
of an arbitration agreement if the
president should finally submit such
an agreement for approval. The passage of a bill repealing the toll exemp
tlon provision of the law also would
be practically Impossible, it was
The arbitration treaty with Great
Britain ratified in 1908, provides that;
disputes between the two countries j
shall be submitted to arbitration J
through an agreement made by the
president "with the advice and con-1
Berit of the senate."
Francis Joseph will grant only collective audiences to the ministers, instead of receiving them separately.
This has caused an unfounded rumor
of the Empcror'a acute illness.
From Inquiries made in authoritative
circles lt Is learned that the emperor's health gives not the slightest
cause for alarm. The emperor Is
working from morning until evening,
and lt la stated that rumors to the
contrary are part of a political campaign of unprecedented violence and
pertinacity designed to scare the Austro-Hungarian public Into the belief
that war is Inevitable.      '
The curt wording of the emperor's
letters ace~ntlng the resignations of
General Ain I'enberg as Minister of
War, and General Schmua aB Chief of
Staff, ls causing much comment ln
military circles. The newspapers
point out that neither letter contains
a single word of recognition for the
PRSt services of these eminent officers.

Brilliant Run by   J.ck   Hoult-T.sm  fQ|j|{   GOALS   APIECE
Fouflht Gamely Against Heavier
Westminster covered Itself with
glory on Saturday at Queen's Park,
when the rugby team held the husky
Vancouver Firemen almost level in
scoring until the last minutes of play.
The final score was 14 points to 5.
The Firemen are a much heavier
and far more experienced fifteen
than their opponents, and playing uphill when Referee Saunders signalled
the word, began from the outset to
presB the home side. The first score,
an unconverted try, was put on by
Fitzpatrlck, the Royal half being unaccustomed to speedy play.
Later, Moffatt went in for the Firemen, who, during this period, had
numerous chances spoiled by thc
faulty handling of their speedy back
division. Had the Royals a shade
more determination ln grassing their
men and getting them low both these
tries could have been averted.
Changing over, Jack Hoult, starting
from his own twenty-flve, ran clear
through the Firemen's defence in a
brilliant fashion. Hlg swerve stood
him In good stead, and Decker following up on his right gathered a pass
almost on the line and scored, Lloyd
converting a splendid goal.
The Firemen now played like demons, but, although the Royals were
for llie most part penned In to their
Own twenty-five, the excellent saving
of Lloyd and Marcon kept the score
stationary untll Evans scored a try
(airly far out which was not converted, followed closely by Thompson
from whose effort a goal resulted, the
whistle then sounding no side.
Mr. T. Moffat and Mr. T. D. Sherriff
Acted as touch Judges.
There was rot quite such a larg"
���crowd as uBiinl. but they were pleased
with what may lie classed as the beg*
performance their representative?
havo put up this season. The forwards need to let the ball out cleaner
and llie halves to gather It more
-swiftly and so feed their three-quarters when tackling a far heavier pack
such as the Firemen, but all round
the team Is Improving. I'layers should
remember to be on time in future and
not keep thoir visitor* watting. *-

Burnaby    Leading   at    Half   Time-
Bankers Draw Up and Tie
Tho Bankers were handed a nice
surprise packet by the Uurnaby team
In the City Soccer League on Saturday afternoon at Sapperton park,
when, after a ding dong battle, the
teams retired with four goalB each
to their credit.
On play the Burnaby eleven should
have won and had" It-not been for the
tireless efforts of ,the financial men
In the laat stages of the game, tho
aspiring leaders would have dropped
both points. Burnaby led at half
time 2-0.
After that the advantage see sawed
back and forth, the Bankers' forwards playing a desperate game and
eventually tlelng the score.
Rovers   Draw   Abreast   Westham Islanders by Goal from Penalty
In Last Half.
Overconfldence by the players, and
their failure to presg in the flrst half
���ot the game resulted In the   Rovers
-only gaining one point against Westham  Island at Moody park Saturday
.afternoon, the flnal result being one
goal eacb.
lt was expected on all sides thai
Westminster would bave an easy time
In taking the game which meant   tin
���cinching of the Senior League chain
pionshi",   and   even   the   Islanders
when they took the fleld, felt it    in
their  bones that  nothing but  defeat
was to be banded them.   At halt time
when no goals had beeu spired,   the |
Westham boys took couraje met   the
attacks of the Rovers bv counter   at-1
tacks, and, fifteen minutes after   re-1
���sumption of plav, Al Trim slipped an
��as��  one past Collier.
Their lead wna made short lived,
however, for Tomllnson converted a
penalty a few minutes later, which
finished the scoring.
The tie game of Saturday may have
a serious offset upon the Rovera'
chances of gaining the leadership, for
the ThlstleB bave only to win from the
���Celtics In order to tie with the Rovers,
which would necessitate a play off in
Vancouver between the two teams.
Whether the Hovers can repeat thj
their victory over the Scotchmen remains to be seen, but there la no
���denying the fact that a bird In the
"hand Is worth two In the bush, and
Scotty Grant's outfit may experience
this before the serial ia Anally ended.
One of the largest crowds of the
season attended Saturday's game and
from a spectator's viewpoint, the
Rovers should have won hands down.
McLeod and Carlodulf were away   off
' frrm nnd missed several chances
given them by Tomllnson. The latter, as usual, played a star game and
frequently gained applause.
However, the dsmage has been done

Who Fall    to    Score���Ranchers   Are
Now In Line for Athletic
For the first time thia season the
B. C. 10. R. went down to defeat in
the Senior Amateur League, the Coquitlam team doing the trick following
the draw lu Vancouver a little over a
week ago.
This eliminates the Electrics from
the Iroquois trophy and the' way the
ranchers are playing the game at the
present stage gives them a mighty
good chance of annexing both the
league championship and also the cup.
The score at Coquitlam on Saturday
was one goal to nil and this just
about indicated the play of the afternoon.
Tiio victory of the suburbanites was
heralded by great enthusiasm In Co
quitlam Saturday evening and soccer football recolved Its greatest
boost In the Industrial centre by rea
son of tbo victory.
The other results tn the league
were as follows:

The late Lord Furness was of
bumble origin. Ills father was a coal
trimmer, and then a small grocer���
in the latter capacity establishihi!
what gradually btfeanie an extenslv-:
business In the provisioning of ships.
Chr'stopher FtirnesB, the son, on receiving an ordinary education, was
put to the family business at an early
age. Ere long he was chartering
steamers for the Importation of supplies; then he bought a number of
boats, and thus he was led Into tbe
fonnatlon of what became the Fur
nesB line of steamers. As a steamship builder and owner, he became e
Throughout bis business life he waB
modest and approachable In manner
and evinced the llvlest Interest In the
welfare of his working people. Hls
v'ews on the relations of capital and
labor were singularly disinterested. In
September, 1911. he delivered an ad
dress on mining unrest at the annual
meeting of the Broomhlll collieries,
in which he strove to reconcile the In-
'erests of employers and employed in
face of pn Industrial crisis.
He advanced no theory whicii he
was unwilling to apply to his own
bnifnott. Observing the losses consequent on needless strikes, and lockouts In shipyards, he devised a copartnery scheme which became somewhat famous. In the course of an ad.
dress on "industrial Peace and Industrial Efficiency," delivered before a
large gathering of representatives of
tbe shipbuilding and allied trad-
<inlons at West Hartlepool on Oct. 7.
1908, he made two definite offers:
Hither the trade unions could tak��
over as going concerns his firm's ship
yards at West Hartlepool on a valua
tion. or his employees could become
limited, co-partners in the undertak j.
lngs. This second offer, which was
ultimately accepted, enabled the men
to take up shares in Furness, Withy
& Co., to be paid for by a deduction
of five per cent from their weekly
wages. The shares carried guarantee interest at the rate of four pei
cent., plus their share ot all profits
made by' the company after the pay
-" nt rf five per cent, to thc ordinary
shareholders. The scheme also in-
���olved tho establishment of a works
council, composed of equal numbers
of representatives of the men and the
management, with recognition of the
trade union officials. On the em
���'lnvnes' n'rle there was a Btrict ob
ligation that there should under nc
circumstances be a strike, and the
firm undertook not to lock out the
men. The result of the experiment
was the payment of nine per cent on
the limited shares, in addition to full
wages for the twelve monthB, and
there was every prospect of a contin-
���nnee of full work the firm now be

New  Hall   for   Lulu   Island���Another
Horse   for   Sapperton���Recent
Chief Watson, of tbe Fire Department,' Intends to apply to the couucil
early next year for a new hall on
Lulu Island and an additional horse
(or the Sapperton station.
"With tho Industrial'"' growth ot
Queensborough," stated (he chief, "the
necessity for moro adequate fire protection for the dlatrict is being emphasized daily. In Sapperton we have
only one horse at the present and tbe
general growth In building in the district has brought about conditions
which call for more complete equipment."
Speaking with regard to the flre
at Sapperton on Thursday morning
and the complaints made by some of
the residents as to the way thd department handled the blaze, the chief
"Conditions were practically all
agalhst ub. Our apparatus had to
plough through muddy and rough
streeta: The house Ib at about the
highest elevation ln Sapperton, and on
account of being practically on a level
with the reservoir the water pressure
waa very poor.
"Tlie water does not run direct to
the house but is circulated through a
large district before it reaches It with
the result that the friction of the
pipes' reduces the pressure.
"The house was three stories high
and a highly inflammable construction, but nevertheless with a Btiff
tight, we managed to save one-half of
it. Mr. J. Saunders, the owner, told
me he was perfectly satisfied with the
department's work."
The chief also stated that ho understood Mr. Sauuders had hia house
heavily Insured shortly before the fire,
and, therefore, did not stand to lose
much, if anything.
Interviewed yesterday, Alderman J.
Henley confirmed his intention to
stand for re-election to the city council. On his platform he will advocate
the establishment of a flre hall on
Lulu Island and additional apparatus
for other halls ln the city.
He considers that a bigger appropriation to the department of which
he is the present head will be war
ranted next year on account of the
enormous growth of,building that has
occurred lately.
The tact that the Lulu Island bridge
is the only communication the city
has at piesent with the Queensborough district and that it cannot al
ways be depended upon to be closed
in case of an urgent alarm Is the chief
reason why lie advocates a hall for
the Island.
