order here this morning by President
Planta, ex-mayor of Nanaimo.
Many Important matters of interest
to tbe whole of the province are up
for discussion. One of them Is the
proposed redrafting of the Municipal
Clauses aet dividing It Into three sections. Vancouver and Victoria would
be in the flrat section. New Westminster, Burnaby, Soutli Vancouver,
Kamloops, Revelstoke, Nelson, Point
Orey and North Vancouver In the
second, while the country municipalities would come under the third section.
Legislation - by which municipalities can purchase or Instal munlclpa'

councils to govern roads and hewers
are also on the program fof discussion. *'

Arrangements are being made by
the city water department to place
an entirely new water main across
the waters of the North Arm to serve
the district of Queensborough and the
municipality of Hiobmond with water.
Several hundred feet of 16-Inch pips
for the uew construction has beea
ordered by tho city and will soon be
on the ground.
The plans for the Improvement!
have not yet been completed by City
Engineer Blackman, but tbey are
along the Hues suggested by Harbor
Engineer A. O. Powell ln a repoit to
the council some time ago. Tbe new
pipe will be laid across the North
Arm about 500 feet below the bridge
In line witb the end cf the Small ft
Bucklin Lumber company's yard.
The new location has been selected
lb order to avoid tbe heavy water
pressure which the present main un
der the bridge bas been forced tn
bear. The suggestions ot Mr. Powei'
have been adopted almost ln their
entirety with a few additions. Thr
advisability of laying an emergency
pipe across tne surface of the bridge
has yet to be figured out.

The Princes oi Brunswick Agreed That
Only One Should Marry,
The s<tory ol an extraordinary rf-yal j
compact,   made   and   faithfully   kept,
and its far-reaching effects upon pos- -,
ferity, may not he generally known.    I
The House  rf  llrunswiclc  possesses
such well-founded claims to antiquity
that  it  has  engaged   mor..-  than   the
ordinary share of attention by historians.
"An English subject," says Gibbon,
"may be prompted by a just and liberal curiosity t. investigate the origin
of the House of Brunswick, which, after an alliance with the daughters ->f
our Kings, has been called by the
voice of a free people to the legal inheritance of the crown. From George
I. and his father, the Elector of Hanover, we ascend a clear and regular
series to the first Duke of Brunswick
and Lunebourg, who received his investiture from Frederick II. about the
middle of the thirteenth century. i
"But the genuine masculine descent
of the Prince of Brunswick  must be '
explored beyond the Alps���the venerable tree whic'i has since overshadowed Germany and Britain was planted
in   the   Italian   Soil.    As  far  as  our
sight can reach, we discern the flrst
founders of the race in the Marquess
nf   Este  of  Limuia.  and   perhaps  nf
Tuscany.   In the eleventh century the ,
primitive stem  was  divided  Into two I
branches.   The elder emigrated to the j
hanks, ol the  Danube and the  Kibe;
the younger more humbly adhered to I
the neighborhood of the Adriatic.  The |
Dukes of Brunswick and the Kings of
Great Britain are the deseendenta of j
tl.e first;  the  Dukes of  Ferrara and
Modena were   the   offsprings   of tlie i
second." I
William   Duke   of   Brunswick   and I
Lunebourg, fourth son of Krnest, had j
fifteen children, seven of whom were
sons,   who   were   rendered   more   ro-
markable  in   history   by  tlieir  amity
then they could well have been by nn
extended and exalted lineage.   On the
death  of  their  father  in   1593,  these |
princes ��� whose names were Krnest,
Christian, Augustus, Frederick, Magnus, George, and John���decided not to j
divide the paternal inheritance, to en- '
able them to keep up the dignity of
their  house.    They   agreed  that only
one   of  their   numher should   marry. '
and that t'ie elder brother should have j
the sole Regency over the Lunebourg
estates, to be succeeded hy the eldest ,
This remarkable compact was faith-
fully observed hy the amiable broth- j
ers. As nlready determined upon, they [
drew lots to see who should marry,
and the fortunate choice fel to Geor,'e,
the sixth brother, who formed an un-
ion with Anne Leonora, daughter of
Louis, Landgrave of Hesse-Darmstadt,
by whom he had five children.
George thus secured the srovernment |
to  his   family,   but   he   died   in   1G-I2 ,
without enjoying the regency himself.
By the Act nf Settlement   familiar to
most   readers,   a   descendant   <>f   the I

Magic   of   the   Alluring   Melodies   cl
Johann Strauss.
Johann Strauss wrote some of the
most alluring walt7.es that have ever
bewitched the feet of tin world, and
they have aptly been described as
"those irresistible waltzes that first
catch the ear and then curl around
the head till on a sudden they invade
and wiU have tho legs."
The music of the waltz originally
consisted of two sections, each composed of eigl.t measures In three-
fourths or three-eighths time. Examples of these primitive forms are
found in Beethoven's and Mozart's
German dances. The next development was the stringing together of
several of these sixteen measure
waltzes and the addition of trios aud
a coda. Hummel first effected this
in 1808. The base of modern waltz
music, however, is, found in the dances
of Schubert. But it is to Weber that
tbe waits owas whst, musically speaking, is its most important development. The composition of the "Invitation to the Dance" marked tbe adoption of the waltz form into the sphere
of absolute music and prepared the
way for the stream of pianoforte and
vocal waltzes not intended as accompaniments to dancing, the best examples of which are the waltzes of Chopin and Rubinstein.
Johann Strauss, the flrst called "the
father of the waltz," raised the waltz
to a higher level than it had ever
been raised before, and Johann, his
son, called "the waltz king," developed the waltz to its present form.
Strauss, the son. wrote over 400 pieces
of dance music, of wllich "The Beautiful Blue Danube," his first vocal
waltz, was the mpst popular. His
waltzes were built up of such beautiful musical themes, often so inspired
and moving, as well as rhythmically
alluring, that they were in a sense
In the early part of the nineteenth
century the composition of waltzes for
dancing was almost entirely in the
hands of the Viennese composers and
the Strauss family in particular. The
Strauss waltzes, which were written
for the ballrooms of tiie gayest dancers in the world, are full nl piquancy,
coquetry and vigor, as full of momentary hesitancies and sudden abandon,
ment of reserve as the conduct of coy
but ardent lovers.
Wagner wrote, "A single Straus.-
waltz surpasses in grace, refinement
and real musical substance most of
the products of foreign manufacture
which we often import at great cost."
Hans Von Buelow publicly advocated
the occasional inclusion of Strauss
waltzes in the programs of symphony
concerts, and Brahms wrote under tha
opening measures of "The Blue Danube Waltz." "Not, unfortunately, by
Johannes Brahms."

Faked Butterflies.
One of the meanest frauds on record
is that which is said to have been
practiced recently on entoinologi.-t<. It
appears that there is a systematic
trade in forged butterflies carritd on
by European dealers. The method as
described is to cover tbe wings Ol
moths after setting with a heavy coat
of powder, which is then tinted with
pastel colors to suit the taste of ama
teurs. Not 1 ���* ntent with imitating the

Ten disputes In all commenced during
September,   tbe   most   Important  of
which were those of coal miners on

The Dominion Has Produced 8oms el
ths Greatest.
Canada, now not only holds a prominent position ln the thoroughbred
"Racing World," but has for many
years past furnished some of the best
riders that America has ever known.
When one takes a look into ancient
history of racing and the jockeys* whi
pi lotted to victory the horses in stake
events on foreign and our own tracks,
the names of Canadian-bom riders are
found among the foremost. A sense
ol wonder is sometimes uppermost as
to what has become or befallen these
riders who have earned laurels and
helped to make turf history. Many
have long since retired from the racing world and are now earning a livelihood in some other business while
others have remained true to their
first love, and although.they have long
since become too heavy or too old to
do duty in the saddle, they have
started in as trainers. M'ny of these
have met with marked success while
others have struck tha trail of failure.
Few knew when vratching Jimmy
Buttwell Tide his mounts to victory
at the spring meeting at Blue Bonnets
that he was a Canadian born and
bred. Buttwell is one of the most successful of thi present age, and al-.
though he is nearly thirty years of
age has a future ahead of him yet.
,He was born in Toronto.
Another Canadian boy who is riding
in good form at the present time is
Merioe Bell. This boy is anotl.rr Toronto product, and was developed under the guidance of Hugh Penny, who,
at one time led the big riders, and
is now perhaps equally successful as
Probably the greatest rider that
Canada ever produced was Johnny
Martin, who was born in Hamilton,
Ont. He led the list of winning rid- I
ers for two years in New York, in j
the palmy days of the "Spirt ol
Kings" in tha: state, and won many
of the greatest of the feature events.
Martin during his rii'.ing career, earn-
���d a small fortune, and retired with
nearly $200,000 to his credit in real
estate and other securities.
After retiring, he returned to his
native town and .established a home
for his mother. Martin first 'earned
to ride with the Hendrie stable at
Hamilton, and bore the colors of some
oi the greatest owners on this continent.
Al Kermak wss another who rapidly
climbed the ladder of success. Frank
Kittlenian whose name is well known
to the old followers of the turf in
Canada, held the first contract on this
lad. He quickly developed him and
tjuk him to New York where a hia
prioe was paid for his contract. Kermak made able use bf his time, and
when about twenty-three years of ase,
ret'red a wealthy boy. He was burn
at Woodstock, Ontario, whence he re
turned, purchasing a stock farm, and
daily added to Hs earnings. lie was

Perhaps the greatest steeplechase
rider ever known, was a Cut adisi.
by birth, it being no less than the
ui.ee famous Nat Ray. He first learned to ride horses around Toront<
which was his birthplace, and a*
was too heavy to ride on the flat ol
tn steeplechasing. He was fur severn
years paid a fabulous sum by Thonia
Hitchcock, who at one time uw-ied th��-
best ol the '".supers" on this continent
Ray won all the stakes offered thr>u*i
the field for jumpers, and after lea!
ing the riders i f America for seven
seasons, retired to take charce ��l ���
string of hiB own. He met with sue
cess, snd carried it oil for one or tw>
years, after which, he retired from th��
thoroughbred world and took to tln-
harue** horse. During his ridin* ca
reer he gsthered a fortune whicii In
added to by real estate investments ii
Jimmy Walsh, who wss born in To
ronto, lirst came into prominence as ��
rider, when he won ttie King's \i\sl*t
at Toronto. From that on he cllmben
op rapidly, and for a Ions time war
the leading rider on the Canadiar
Another good steeplechase rider wa-
W'illn- 0. Wilson, who was bom in To
tonto, and first learned to ride in a
show rint riling the horses of Pepper and Moorehouse, under the guid
ance of Tim Blong, who had charge
of Km*, stable. Wilson then drifted into the racing game and ^or several
years owned a string of his own. He
rode all of his own horses and mat
with marked success.

A Lost Plsy.
Weedon Groitsmith, the English
comedian, used to tell a good story
almit a play by Robert Ganthony,
which that gentleman asked him to
read. Mr. Grossmith took the comedy, but lout it on his way home.
"Night after night," he says, "'I would
meet Ganthony, and he would ask me
how I liked his play. It was awful.
The perspiration used to come out on
my forehead as I'd say sometimes, 'I
haven't had timp to look at it yet,' or.
auain, 'The first act was gorxl, but 1
can't sto.-> to explain, etc., must catch
a train.' That play was the bane o(
my existence and haunted even my
dreams." Some montha passed, and
Ganthony, a merry wag, still pursued
him without meroy. At last it occurred to Mr. Grossmith that he might
have left the comedy in the cab on
the night it was given to him. He
went down to Scotland Yard and inquired. "Oh, yes!" was the reply.
"Play marked with Mr. Ganthony's
name sent back to the owner four
months ago, as soon as found."
