NEW WESTMINSTER. B.C., TUESDAY MORNING, MAY 7, 1912,
CITY LAUNCHED ON
PATH OF PROGRESS
Harbor Scheme Adopted and Council Will Prepare Loan
Bylaw-City Waterfront to Be Made Continuous Quay-
Trouble With School Board.
PRICE FIVE CENT8.
BliiiHG QUESTION
Of COAL PRICES
In the words of Alderman White,
Westminster has arrived "at the parting of the ways," ani last night the
initial step was taken along the path
which all feel will lead to progress
and prosperity. The council adopted
tiie harl;Or plans as presented and resolved to prepare a by-law to be submitted to the ratepayers for their approval, authorizing the borrowing of
sufficient money to proceed wilh the
work of widening Front street, providing suitable dockage for vessels,
additional railway facilities air.l more
conveniences for industrial development.
"This resolution," said Alderman
White, "will record the first act of
the council in bringing to a realization our harbor scheme. It seems lo
me'tbat this is a \ery Important
episode, big with possibilities for New
Westminster. This present proposal
is to bring forward a by-law to pro-
Udc sufficient funds to construct a
quay according to the plans fiom
about the foot, of Tenth street to a
point approximately at the foot of the
production of Merrivale street, that It
practlcully along ihe whole city front.
It Is tbe first Instalment of the greater
scheme t ���> be."
Aldt.mrn Lynch seconded the
motion, which W83 included ln the
harbo.' lOniinii tee's report. Uut Aldcr-
t*nn f."oiid sai'l that he had not seen
the i iars and before the council passed s motion of this nat.ire It would be
well for all to know what those plans
weie. lie was not opposed to the harbor scheme,-but co.ild not vote for
anything which he did not understand, i.'lj worship expressed his sur-
prise M Alderman IJodd's lack of
familiarity with the scheme, 113 he
said theie had been every opportunity
for discussing it. The motion was
finally carried, Alderman Dod.l aione
voting nay.
Council and School Doard.
There was no lack of Incident ii.

council lan c-.-enlng. Breeches were
many, sj too v.-aus tiatinitioa* of the
fifarul taken by Individual memberi
upon questions of Importance to the
bod;: polilie. The city fathers were
not altogether agreed uion manj
points, i.'..<l divisions .uth attendant
handshakings were fteiucnt.
The relations of the council with
the school board Btarted the ball renin;', and these relations were early
brought into prominence by the reading of a communication f.om Ui?
SCho'asllc body. This missive aft��r

The building inspector, lt went on.
was clear on the i olnt, but the board
on reading the by-laws did not appear
to see tile matter in the same cieai
way. Under the circumstances the
board did not know whal the building
inspoctor wanted it to do, ar.d would
be glad to take the matter up with
the coJDcil at the earliest, possible
date and then it had no doubt that a
satisfactory understanding could be
an anted. The document concluded
by saying that the board appreciated
the stand taken by tho building inspector, but was Incline! to thln'i
that some c!ear definition of the wording of the by .Jaws might be of imprest not only to It, but to others who
anticipate the erection of large/ build
lngs in the future.
Statements "Impertinent."
Alderman Curtis proposed that the
bul ding committee meet the board od
Thursday next, but the mayor said
tbat under present conditions he
would nut meet them. The Statements
ma 'e in lhe letter were not pertinent
in fan: were impertinent.
Alderman Dodd thought that the
building eommltteo should not be
given power to allow the board to
Ignore the by-laws, while Aldermstn
Henley Insisted on tho observance ol
tho flre- and building by-laws. Th��
board Bhould havo known better than
to tto ahead with the work as thej
had done.
Tbe ma; or said Ujat the board was
trying to belittle the measures passed
by the council. "Wo didn't consult
the school board when the by-laws
were made."
Alderman Gray remarked that not
only <Jld the Seventh avenue school

did the SMh avenue nor Sappertor.

thoncht'that the trustees mh'ht he
notified that tiio council would be In
a certain place ot a certain time, nnd
i if they wanted to Interview the council the*.- mli;ht do so.
"On the basis of that letter, I refuse* to meet tbem," said the mayor
Alderman Curtis thought that tb*>

and this he dot lored. Them wer*
absurdities In the by-law. It wop
their dutv to see that the school*
were built, and ho movrd that they

man Gray said that the council cotdrf
not change Its bylaws so that, the
flans could pass.   The responsibility
of tho lives of the children would be
on them.
Public or Private ?
Then ensued a discussion as to
whether the meeting should be pv>
vate or public. Alderman Kelllngton's
resolution was for the former. Alder
man Curtis' for a committee meeting
Tho mayor said that he had etery de
sire to meet the wishes of the schooi
trustees and would meet tbem if the'
would write and ask in a proper manner, but when such letters were sent
as those of March S and the present
one, he absolutely and positively re.
fused. Alderman White said tbat he
could not be present ou Thursday
The amendment for a private meeting
was voted down and a public meeting
will therefore be arranged ou Thursday evening at 8 o'clock.
Rate Still 20 Mills.
A difference of opinion was manifested following the announcement by
Alderman Lynch that the council >'
a special meeting had decided not tn
reduce the cost of electric light.
Alderman Dodd said ihat h^ had been
trying io carry out his e'ection
tledi;es, and he thought that, tbe estimates could te pared. Alderman Curtis said that cutting the light meant
raising the rales, nnd it was well
known that the council would keep
the rate at 20 mills. Alderman Kellington thought that taking off the
merer tent, was better than reducing
tbe rate one cent per kilowatt. The
bond of works estimates must not
lie pared down. Tho motion carried

Trades and Labor Council    Ask   for
Municipal Coal Yard���Wlll Submit Figures.
INVITE NATIONS
TO CONFERENCE
BURNABY IS BUSY
WITH MANY THINGS
LEADING WRITER
ADMIRES CITY
Two questions, one of which has at
various Ume3 agitated the various
cities of the province, and the other
of more local nature, were brought
forward for possible solution by a
deputation of the Trades and Laboi
council at tlie council meeting last
night.
First, Mr. Duncan wanted to know
what jurisdiction the council exercised wilh regard to the school board
He considered that an injustice hae
been done to tho people of this city
by the action of the school board In
letting the contract of the new
Seventh avenue school. "The board,"
he said, "were approached by us and
asked to Insert a fair wage clause li.
Its coniractb. Tbls was refused. Now
we fail to see the consistency of let
ting a contract for a price $:i(i00 more
lhan need have been given. Wc
would like to obtain an explanation.
We would ask the council what juris
diction it has regarding the board?"
This matter was speedily settled foi
ths moment by the mayor saying that
the council has absolutely no juris
diction over the board. It can do
nothing with regard to the expenditure of the money voted by thc peo
;>!e for school purposes after the bylaws have been affirmed.
Mr. Duncan then took up the coal
question. The miners, he said, re
ceived some 00 cents for digging oui
one ton of coal. "That coal wben
leceived in Westminster has to be
naid for at the rate of $7.50 to $8 pei
ton." He suggested that the council
take Mens to establish a municipal
coal yard and thus supply the citizens
at reasonable prices. It had beer,
tried elsewhere with success.
Mr. Cameron conei.leied it was the
Juty of the council to do this. Tha!
the middle man should receive f8.S0
���er ton was a matter whicli needed
. edress.
Alderman Dodd spoke at some
en-ih on this "burning question." I.'c
said that- a combine of the worst
aature e- ItteJ in thn province. The
protection afforded the coal owners
by the government was out of all
beeping with the way In which tbe
ow.;erc treated the people. Pennsylvania coal could be bought 500 miles'
from the pit at $5 per ton. Here one
had to pay $8 with the mines only 80
miles away.
The suggestion of Alderman Gray
���vas adopted, namely, that the Trades
und Labor council put at the disposal
of the board of works all the information at Its command, and tbat the
board then re; on to the council.
V. B. Congress Wishes International   Maritime  Discussion.
Decides to Equip United States Army
Transports w,ith  Life Boats at
Cost of $300,000.
	
Washington, May fi.���An inter,
national maritime, conference and the
immediate equipment of all United
States army transports with life-sav
in? apparatus were provided for to
day ln bills passed unanimously by
the. House. Hoth measures were introduced as a result of ths Titanic
disaster and record time was made
in their passage. It is expected that
e;iual speed will be made In the
senate.
Tlie International conference would
be held in Washington and the presi
Jent Is authorized to open negotiations with all maritime powers to
3epd delegates. The conference would
consider the bioad question of live-
saving equipment on merchant vessels, Investigate the desirability ot
liaving an international i��trol fleet
in the North Atlantic during the seasons when icebergs abound and the
oractlcabillty of compelling large
liners to have convoys on their trips.
The biil providing for the epuip-
ment of army transports appropriated
$300,000 for the instal.atton of life
boats and rafts and makes compulsory
the installation of sufficient boats and
rafts to care for every passenger and
member of the crew.

An Idea of the opinion held ln the
most Influential quarters in England
concerning the nntural advantages of
Westminster may be gained by perusing tho following letter which has
been received by the publicity com-
mls��ioner.    The writer visited    this j took "a" leading part lu municipal and

Mayor Lee announced last,night
that on behalf of the people of Westminster he had wired east an expression of sympathy and regret at the
death of Hon. J. P. Mabee, chairman
of the railway commission. His worship said that hy his death Canada
had lost a man wbo possessed perhaps a wider and better insight Into
renditions affecting the West than
had any other man who had occupied
the same position
Judge Mabee was born at Port
Rowan, Ont., November 5, 1859. He
came from sturdy United Empire
Loyalist stock, his father being S. P
Mabee, for years collector of cus

portant position upon the editorial
staff of one of tho great papers in
Lon lon. He says: "I can assure you
most positively that I only wish that
I could settle permanently ln your
beautiful locality. I was most charmed with lt ln spite of the fact that I
only had a cursory glance and that
not even in the best of weather. What
the place Is like In the finest Beason

"There is only one thing that stops

position on the staff of the greatest
newspaper In the world. I propose,
however, to come and make n longer
stav with you at no distant date, and
eventually, it may be, to end my days
there.
"I shall alwavs be glad to receive

I Bhall make use of them wherever I
can. Since my return I have never
fal'ed to recommend the place, to all
and sundry whom 1 have met. and indirectly I have no doubt that I have
been the means of doing your part of
the British empire some good."
The plans of the G. N. VL, company's
station grounls, customs and detention buildings at White Rock, were
submitted to the Surrey council at
their meeting last Saturday. The accompanying letter from J. H. O'Neill,
superlntendant of the railway, stated
tliat copies of these same plans had
been forwarded to the Board of Railway' Commissioners at Ottawa, ar.d
that the company intended to apply
for their approval by the board as
soon as they were received there.
This was the most important piece
of business done at a full meeting of
the council with the reeve in the
chair. For the rest applications for
the opening up of roads composed as
usual the bulk of the business. Collections to the amount of $2736.66
were reported and accounts to the
amount of $2170.67 passed. Appropriations of $100 each were made ln
wards three and four for the Pike
road north of Bose road.
Tho applications for road work
were as follows:.
From G. F. Sykes, et al., asking to
have improvements made on the road
running between Sections. 21 and 22,
Township 1, South of Elgin.
From D. Wix re the bad condition
of the North Bluff Road from the
cemetery to the east boundary of the
municipality.
From Geo. H. Wales, \Y. D. Frost
and 13 others requesting the council
to make a start towards opening the
Davis Road between the Clover Valley and the Coast Meridian Roads as
this Is the only road to tho C. "L

From J. H. O'Noill, superintendent
of the Great Northern Railway, re

asking for the date the crossing was

Bowser Says no Small Debts Court fori
Edmonds���Water Supply���Rock
Crusher.
Edmonds, May 6.���Attorney General
Bowser put a damper on the aspirations of Burnaby to secure the holding
of a small debts court at Edmonds.
A letter was read from Victoria last
evening, stating that the request
could not be granted at Ihi3 time on
the grounds that the stipendiary magistrate ta Westminster could fully
cope with any mai cr in that line nnd
a change would probably mean a reduction of his salary, which they did
uot favor.
Permission was given by tbe council to tho British Columbia Electric
Kailway company to lav temporary
crossings over the Buller and the
Gilley roads for their tracks on the
new cut-off at Kigh'and Park. The
crossings in question will have to be
removed, however, at the request of
the Burnaby council in event of the
municipal and the company's engineers failing to agree.
The water committee took up a
communication from Mr. D. C. Patterson, who stated that the present situation In the Edmonds waterworks system called for immediate improvement if the municipality wanted to
avert serious trouble resulting from
unsanitary conditions.
Mr. Patterson claimed that too
many extensions were being made in
the Edmonds district in comparison
with the pressure, it was moved by
Reeve Weart that no more extensions
be made until the new mains across
the Narrows be completed, after
which Burnaby will have water
enough and to s;:are. The lirst shipment of r.e.v pipe, which will allow
the system to be extended, Is expected early ne-1 week. Th engineers
of the waterworks system reported
enough surplus ripe was on hand to
supply all tha reine-:ts mide for ex-
tending the system to districts out-
siJe the a:ea.
Councillor .Yuyne. at the beard of
works session, caiused a little Harry
by demanding that one of the road
crushers be placed fn oi eration in the
Central Park distiict. Councillor Fan
Vol contended that ward four, which
nr> lo the present had only received
some 200 yards of crushed rock, was
entitled to some consideration. After
some bieezy interludes, the construction engineer was empowered to purchase a crtsher which had been in
use on the Tucker contracts, for the
sum of not more than $1000. This
will alleviate the difficulty, North
Burnaby retaining one of the crushers, and Central Park getting the
use of the smaller one, while the
Johnson road will be rocked after the
Douglas road is completed.

The first annual meeting of the
members of the New Westminster Y.
il. C. A. was held last evening when
the report of the past six months'
work was presented, together with
Ihe financial statements. The revenue-
account made a very satisfactory
showing, the institution having- already nearly placed itself on a aeif
sustaining basis. The receipts for
April for instance were but $73.12
short of the expenses.
The total revenue and expenditure
on maintenance account since the
opening last, fall was in the vicinity
of $6500. The building fund account
is not in such a satisfactory state.
?ome $11,000 of the original amount
of subscriptions promised, viz. (46,000,
being still unpaid, and thla sum, together with the cost of furnishing aad
equipping the building is being carried by the directors who are naturally anxious to see the arrears paid up
to afford them relief from this heavy
financial burden.
The staiistibal report presented by
General Secretary Anderson showed
a membership of 507 young men and
boys; that 26 men's Sunday afternoon
services had been held with aa average attendance of 65 at each. The
several socials held in tlie institution
had been attended by 1537; the Sunday evening strangers tea averaged
20. Physical Director Sovereign's report showed a total enrollment in the
gymnasium of 308 with 410 classes
held, attended by 7747 members; 70
had been taught to sa-im and life
saving, first aid and other classes
formed in addition to the regular
work. Of the 25 basketball matches
played b.v Y. M. C. A. teams only
eight were lost, the boyj proving vic-
torlouB in the re ina in fng 17:
In connection with this department
the meeting recommended the directors to endeavor to secure a special
boys department secretary before next
fall to take charge of the boys' work
generally, the enrollment of juniors
being exceptionally strong; it is also
probable that the bowling alley will
be installed and ln operatica by the
end of the summer.
The meeting last evening was preside! over by Mr. T. J. Trapp, president, who biiefly reviewed the worlc
of the bulb 'tag committee and provisional directorate to date. After
the secretary and physical department
reports had been received Mr. Walker
Sangster, on behalf of the nomination
committee, moved that the following
be elected to the board of directors
for the ensuing year: Messrs. T. J.

Interesting Discoveries at    PompeM���
Six Skeltons in One Room.
A writer in a German paper gives
an interesting account of the recent
discoveries in Pompeii, says the London Dally Telegraph. The new excavations, wllich are on the road to
the amphitheatre, have struck "the
Stieet of Abundance," with its fine
houses and balconies, obviously the
residences of rich people. The walls
of the houses are particularly rich in
frescoes. On the side of the door of
one of the bouses, a contrivance re-
rambling a bell-pull has been found,
which sir;fi;ests that the door-k' .iker
nas not. tne only means that tt *. victor had of making his presence kno.vn
to those ItiFidc. Tbe 'iscovery of the
bell Inside the house leaves no doubt
is to the meaning of the metal appliance outside. In another part of
the city the excavation of a large1 and
Important house has just been finished. It belonged to M. Obelllus Fid-
nuis, who, with his wife and children,
rerlshed in one of the inner rooms.
Por here six skeletons were found of
a man and womiin and four children.
Tliey wove suffocate I by Ihe hot
ashes before they could escape. In
this house tbe children's n.irs-ery has
been found, with pictures of gladiators and horses scribbled by the chil-
dren still on the walls. An except
tionally beautiful marble table and
some very fine frescoes have also
been bro ight to light. The authorities bave decided that the room in
which tbe skeletons were found preserved in lava shall not be disturbed.
A glass glass case is to be placed
over the gruesome relics. Touiists
who do not want to see this miniature morgue should be warned in
time, for guides at Pompeii have no
discretion as to what they show the
unsuspecting visitor.
Art Claims Many Servants.
A policeman, a quarryman and a
road mender were among the prize
winners at an arts and crafts exhibition held in a Yorkshire (England)
village recently.
Autos and Accidents.
The number of street or road accidents in the l'nited Kingdom caused
by vehicles in 1911 was 36,210, of
which 1557 were fatal. In London
there were 385 fatal and 13,810 other
iccldents. Of the former, 155 wen-
caused by motor cars, vans or motor-
cyles, 107 by motor omnibuses and
2fi by electric street curs.
KAISER BANS DRAMA.
An English Chemist Has
Discovered How to
Grow Hair
In England the ladies have entirely
abandoned wear ng rats, which is
due entiiely to this new discovery.
It has been pi oven that Henna
leaves contain the ingredients that
will positively grow hair. That they
contain this long-looked-for article is
proven every day.
The Americans are now placing on
the market a preparation containing
the extract from Henna leaves, which
is having a phenomenal sale.
This preparaticn is called SALVIA,
and Is being sold with a guarantee
to cure Dandruff and to grow hair in
abundance. Being daintily perfumed,
SALVIA makes a most pleasant hair
dressing. Ryall, your druggist, is the
first to Import this preparation Into
N'ew Westminster, and a large, genei-
ous bottle can be purchased for 50c.

H. Thinka It Will Carry P.nlclou*
Social   Doctrines,
Wilhelm II. of Germany has announced that in future no dramatic
production will be financed or encouraged by himself or his family. The
Kaiser gives no reason for his action,
but it is supposed he resents the fact
that German opera now opens ita
doors to real thinkers, many of whom
are opposed to his ideas about military glory. One English critic explains the Emperor's snub of the
stace is follows:
"In Germany, although desperate
and partly successful efforts are made
to stifle thought, or rather to throttle
those who seek to utter thoughts subversive of the present system of tyranny, the theatre has already played
a valuable part in tbe dissemination
of ideas. Indeed, ever since the production of Ludwig Fulda's play founded on the story of the King and the
fraudulent tailors, some uf the German dramatists have used their great
weapon in on 3 form or another as a
means of attack on the Empire of
blood and iron that causes huge mischief to the Germans and their neighbors, if 1 were a despot I should coax
the drama and chain the drama, and
would support lavishly the theatre so
long as it preached conventional views
of royalty, loyalty, patriotism, religion, and morality, and have a censorship of fiercest vigor at the same time
nnrl permit no evasions by nv~ans of
semi-private performances, ind, if
course, I should fail, fail utterly in
the long run, since it is as difficult
to chain thought as to carry water in
a sieve. Tbo Hohenznllerns may wisely indicate tbeir wrath with drama
by refusing to finance plays or to lie
associated officially with a form of art
capable of spi ending in an effective
manner ideas destructive cf the existing system."

The Meok Recruit.
It was at the target practice of the
local compnny of territorials, and one
of the officers wos suitably holding
forth on the matter in baud.
Sauntering swaggeringly up to the
latest  recruit,  he  said:
"See here, my man, this thing is a
rifle. Here is the barrel, there the
stock. You slip the cartridge in
here."
The companv was becoming exceedingly interested.
"Now," continued the officer, "you
put the weapon to your shoulder.
These little things on the barrel are
tha sight*. When you have taken accurate aim pull this 1 ittie thing, which
is the trigger."
Tlie company began to rmile.
"Now, remember what I have told
you. Pmarten up and look more like
a soldier 1" went on tbe captain, seeking to make a further impress. "By
the way, what is your business? A
clerk, I suppose!"
"Mo, sir,' came the r?p!y; "I am
only  a gunsmith."���Answers.
The Value of r Name.
Nelson a thriving, hustling English
town, is a living instance of the value
of a name. Not long after the battle
of Trafalgar some tinker, tailor or
other person established a tiny wayside inn and called it after the naval
hero. Thero was nobody on tbe spnt
Irom whom to expect custom, but the
road led to and ttom populous districts. Travelers stopped at tbe place,
and presently a cottage or two began
to rise, then more of them, and the
name ol the public house answered
for tha whole. That was the nucleus
of the present town. Now 40.0C0 people live around the site which the old
innkeeper chose and called after the
name of his hero.
Sent  Her Something  Pretty.
A Russian tra ird duke was visiting
Paris and chanced to dine in Rosa
Bonhcur's company. They got on very
well, and' at dessert they ate philo-
pena together���that is to say. they
shared a double almond. But the
duke when next they met lost the
philopena and asked the artist what
present lie should give her. She replied laughingly, "Any animal thnt
will do to paint; something pretty,
you know." The duke smiled and departed. Nothing more wa.-i heard ol
him. ar.d tbe lady had quite forgotten
the affair when the ducal forfeit arrived in the sha^e of three enormous
polar bears.
A  Wealthy  Vagrant.
Not lon? ago in Switzerland a vagrant taken into custody by the police
was found to have his coat padded
with bank notes amounting to $2S.-
000. He explained that some time before he had registered with heaven a
vow to spend none of it; hence, although at the time he was arrested
he was starving, he had kept his
word.
The Peacock on a Rainy Day.
The peacock, glittering with jewel-
like eyes, bus a voice by no menu"
suited to it.-; beauty. Its cry ik. harsh
and disagreeable. When the rain talis
it sits,on some high perch, uttering
its doleful sounds, with its beautiful
tail leiilhcrs drawn into the -uiallii.-'
possible space. Like the vain creature that it is, it t ever upreads its
fail unless the sun shines.
How tho Ancient* Regarded Iran.
The ancient Egyptians believed tbnt
iron was the bone of Typbon, Unci cmy of Osiris, and for this reason
it was considered impure. No one
could make use of it even lor the most
ordinary requirements oi life witho it
polluting his soul in a way tbat wou' i
cnuse bim harm both on earth and iv.
the otber  world.
Amusing  Britain.
Tbe British people last year spent
$126,000,000 in amusements. There
are sixty-seven theatres in London,
738 in the provincial towns, and there
are besides 311 musio balls. Over
40,000 persons claim to belong to "tbe
profession." Last year 541 new plays
were  produced.

Mrs. Despard had not given consideration to the ecclesiatlcal prejudice
against women appearing in church
bare-healed. But she denied that
there was any Biblical injunction or
law against It.
On this point, however, an authority on ecclesiastical matters', whose
opinion was asked, stated that a
woman must)' certainly have her head
covered in church, or the church wardens would refuse her admission. "I
am afraid," he added, "That if the
Suffragettes read the second chapter
of the first Epistle to the Corinthians
tliey will come across some unpleasant home truths that hardly support
their teaching."'
Mrs. Despard's proposed hatless

has "not a drop of Anglo-Saxon blood

farms. Of these, the most extensive

who cleared $10,000 in the past season alone. He does not raise the ordinary red fox, which fur is as yet ln

wealthy can afford it are to he found

Sfcvft, 'while in Uuslness as a fur
Juiier, I saw the'possibilities of profit ln ralrjng fur-bearing animals. At
grent exrense 1 managed to secure a
pair of silver gray foxes which had
been dug out of their den when only
puppies.
"I spent thousands of dollars before
I achieved results, and in these years
I had to withstand the Jeers of my
farm neighbors, who regarded the
scheme as nothing raore or less than
mad."
The pelts are marketed in London,
England, and for a single fox Mr.
Bowerman sometimes obtains as
much as $2000, an.l for a pair of
foxes, to be used for breeding, purposes, he is paid from $4000 to $5000.
For the past few years most, of the
foxes on this farr>i, nave not been killed for thelj; ,'ur, for now that the en-

The remarkable value of the silver
fox fur lies In the fact that it cannot
be Imitated. The color is black, save
at-the tip of the tail, while around
the hips ls found the silver gray band
that gives the fur Its value. At the
root and tip the hairs are Wack, but
gray through the middle. Thus* is
produced a beautiful sheen which experts ate unable to imitate.

THE   DEMERITS  OF   8ILENCE.
Many people who die prejudiced for
or agfilnsi a particular line of action
hold their tongue, or, as Sir Johu
French says, "they shun the fierce
light of publicity from quite unworthy
motives." Now, beliefs which do not
flnd expression are of no use to anybody. It is by publicity and the free
play of argument and rejoinder that
the one good idea la winnowed from
the one thousani unsound ideas
which are brought forward. ThU separation of wheat from chaff ls in reality the process of advancement and
civilization.
Undoubtedly, many opinions only
continue to be held because those who
hold them are reluctant from one
cause or another to submit them to
the light of argument. Probably, in
many cases, this is a matter of temperament. Some men of very flne
judgment are really Inarticulate and.
although they may see that one
course ls better than another, are not
always possessed of that gift of tongues which would enable them to persuade their neighbors. However, this
exhortation on the part of Sir John
French is all on the side of scientific
progress In military matters.���Country Life.

���3ad Conditions,
A CLEANLY CITY.
With the full burst of spring now
upon us and the feeling of May Day
In the air, have come several timely
suggestions whicli apart from being
in themselves a sign cf no mean import, will if carried out tend to the
uplifting of both the city and of tlie
people.
There is no truer proverb than that
which says that cleanliness is next to
godliness. In the rush and turmoil
of what may be termed the construction era when a settlement, springs
into the maturity of a town or city,
too little heed is paid to the tidiness
and artistic side of things. Just as
mortar strewn boards disfigure the
palatial office building prior to its
completion, so the evidence of the
materials we have disrardrd in our
daily life too often disllgure the
wholesohie aspect of our lanes and
vacant spaces. The board of health is
now appealing for the co-operation of
the citizens in making the city what
it should be, clean and wholesome
wherever one may go, alike on the
wide sweep of Columbia street or In
the most recently opened out subdivision.
Again we have heard recently an
appeal from the Mayor in behalf of
gardens, and the lips of a recent visitor have again introduced us to the
temporarily forgotten idea of the
beauty of the window box. The flowers
of the field or of the nursery have
been the theme of many poets, their
lessons have heen expounded to us by
the greatest of ail teachers, and today few doubt their good effect" upon
the minds and .^characters of men.
Window lio'xda have special advantages in ornamenting a city. They can
be employed  in    districts    too    congested to allow of extensive or    frequent garden are is.   They can be introduced  In  the  business  centre    as
easily as in the furthest suburh. The
offices of Columbia street would add
greatly to the beauty    of    our    fine
thoroughfare if  they  all  displayed  a
flower box outside their windows    at
least on    the upstair    storeys.    The
effect would he charming, its execution would be cheap.    Ther<pre why
not take tho step and add  still  one
more to the -many features that make
Westminster such a distinctive city ?
London, May 6.���The Titanic disaster has or.ened up the entire question of tbe organization'of the personnel of the British mercantile marine.
It is declared that while our shipping
tonnage mounts rapidly each year,
the character of our common seamen
has declined. Our mercantile officers
arc admittedly splendid, but the men
before the mast tehd to become more
and more made up of foreigners. The
fo'c'sle life in most ships is so poor
that Englishmen, save of the poorest
type, refuse to endure it. The poor
food, worst cooking, bad accommodation and low wages have all combined to turn many thousands of decent
seamen to other work.
Not only this, but the sailors' quarters on shore are usually on the notoriously worst streets' in every English port. Thus we boast a splendid
succession of millionaire shipowners,
but a thinning hast of poverty-stricken sailors. The sentiment ls growing
here that Biitish ships shall be made
endurable for British sailors and fair
wages, decent quarters and good food
shall be granted by the state. lt is
also suggested that the owners who
man their ships with cheap foreigners
shall be supertaxed.
In answer to this the owners declare: "British-born sailors are so
drunken, discontented and lawless
that we are driven to employ foreigners," to which shipping experts reply
that the British-born eailors are bad
because the conditions prevailing in
the average forecastle are so unendurable that decent Englishmen are
driven away.
Notwithstanding all this, however,
London deeply resents what it considers tbe harsh pre-judgment ancl unfair treatment of the Titanic witnesses by the (J. S. senate inquiry.
Men here scoff at the ignorance betrayed by members of the senate committee, at their foolish questions and
at the prejudlcate attitude and hectoring manner of the chairman.
ELECTRICITY   AND   GROWTH.
I
BURNABY PRCPARES TO
MARKET UNSOLD BONDS
Startling Question   Raised by Experiments Upon School Children.
Does    electricity    make      children
grow?   This startling question is stig-1
gested by a series of highly   interest- j
lng   experiments    which    have   Just
been  concluded    in     the  schools  ofj
Stockholm.
The walls and ee iings of a school
room were lined wl ti a coii of iflres,]
through  which a h. ,i. frequency cur-1
rent was passed.   Fifty children were j
kept in  the room,  while  fifty  others, J
of the same average age, and mental \
development, were    kept   in an    adjoining room without electrical treat
ment.
At the end of six months thc chil
die a under electrical treatment show-1
ed an average growth of two inches,
while those without electricity grew
only one and a quarter inches. The
electrified children showed an increase in weight and other forms of
development in proportion to iheir
height. They appeared to be much
brighter, quicker and more active,
prompter in attendance and much less
subject to fatigue than the uneleetri-
fled scholars. And their teachers, too
showed superior working capacity as
the ros'iilt of the electrical atmos-
ibere in which they worked.���Answers.

THE   ART   OF   ANTICIPATION.
wp anticipate everything nowadays.
To nave anything In its proper season
i:= a modern Impossibility,   The art of
anticipation has reached sueh perfection   that   we    eat    strawberries    at
Christmas and oranges in June without a single tremor.   We revel in the
prospect of buying straw hats in January and fur coats in July.   The sight
of a daffodil on  a bleak   midwinter
day docs not. shock us. and chrysanthemums  In   August   are  common  or
garden   occurrences.      Once   upon   a
time, so we imagine, things had their
season, and kept to it.   Humanity recognized the fact that It was not summer all    the year    round, or winter
either.     Food and fashions fell* into
line in the good old days; and aspara-'
gus was eaten only when it. grew by
nature, not by mechanism or a truly
devilish  kind.      It   must have    been
soothing to feel that winter was winter, and spring was spring.    It  must
have heen pleasant to eat fruits and
buy flowers at the time of year that
Providence   originally   provided    for
their appearance.      We cannot enjoy
such privileges today.���The   Graphic.

The employees of the B. C. E. II.
are the latest to succumb to the lacrosee fever. Manager Fred Hume
has issued a deft to all the intermediate teams In this vicinity and claims
that any aggregation outside of the
Mann cup holders will have to go
some to put the kibosh over the newly formed team. The following handled in their signed contracts, which
Fred claims are a mere fraction of
what they will have juet as soon as
jt is known a team has been organ-,
ized. Here's the list: Hume, Cameron

son, Harris, Kirby, Kussell, Dolan,
Purvis, Ray, Smith, Pook, PowerB,

Hill Patchell was elected last evening to lead the Senior Amateur lacrosse team this coming season. A
good workout was indulged in last
evening on the Moody square grounds,
fourteen players turning out in uniform, the defence playing t he home.
Hegular practices are in order, the
boys working ln harmony to make a
"better showing that ever ln the
league.
The officials of the Senior Amateur
Soccer league have repented of their
^asty actions taken some weeks ago,
lefusing to tjrn over their entrance
money to the secretary of the local
team. The latter tentleman received
JT.fiO this week in accordance with
ihe repeated demands made by blm.
The Vancouver members of the executive evidently fear a secession of the
local team from the league next season if better treatment Is bot accorded them.

bost bo>er.? at liis weight that has visited Alherta. Charles Lucca fought
Billy Lauder at Winnipeg about two
years ago. This bout with Lauder
was one of the best fifteen-round
draws ever witnessed ln the city.
Lucca met Lauder agafn later on, biit
he was not In the best condition. Last
year lie had eleven bouts in Nova
Scotia, two of these he won by the
knockout route and earned four decisions;  tlie balance were drawn.
Compai lng these boxers with Bay-
ley or Allen, tbey can be considered
quite in the same class. Hayley and
Allen have a few advantages over
them, but a mutch between the winner of the Bassano contest and any
one of the above mentioned challengers would be worth going a iong
Jistame to see.
A wire received from S. E. Huek,
manager of Billy Allen, b.v Tommy
Burns today, stated that Allen is in
good shape and that he will keep
Billy training at Ottawa, Anally finishing at Syracuse, before coming west.
Tbey will come to Calgary via Chicago and St. Paul. Huek is confident
that liis man will win the bout and intends lo back Allen to the limit when
he arrives in the west.
Fans in the west consider that Bay-
ley and Allen have e:iual chances to
win the bout on June 29 and any
money put up at the [resent time Is
even. The Winnipeg Post considers
Bayley the belter man of the two but
Ottawa pa|>ers still have the confidence of old in Allen. Fans in Calgary look fcrwar I to Bayley although tbey know that whoever wins
will have no easy time.

was  Inserted   very  near  the  mouth,
and Its point came out at tbe opposite cheek to the extent ot about, one-
eighth of an Inch.      This spike was
followed by another from the opposite direction, Inserted    In the same
manner.      Spikes   were   then  thrust
' through    the    lobes    of    the    ears,
through the skin on the shoulders until there were, all told, no less than
seven  spikes  in   him.      The  second
man was treated in much   the same
way, except   that    two    spikes were
driven through tHe superflous fat on
his si 'cs, just above the hips, coming
out behind.   The third man was treated In the same manner as the second,
except that he was pierced wiih only
one stuke, on his right side.   But this
was driven In apparently eo much tn
the    centre of   his stomach   that   it
seemed    almost,    impossible that    it
could  have avoided woundine a vital
snot.    Notwithstanding this, however,
the effect    of the    dervish, standing
there unniye.', with the spike driven
through  hfs  body,  was  startling,   to
j say the least of It.   The sheikh then
i vemo'ed the solves, one by one, ho-ld-
] ing the flesh tightly as he did so.   As
soon as tbe spike was withdrawn he
licked his finger and placed lt on the
srot.    No blood came forth. Neither
the men  dlsrluyed any  signs   of

judging of this, as of other features,
as the whole performance took place
at a distance   of about   four feet ln

COLD WATER AT Y. M. C. A.
Wany Had Cold Feet Too���Results of
Races.
The water proved pretty cold at tbe
V. M. C. A. yesterday and was not
conducive to rang distance swimming.
The High ' sctool boys, however,
braved the newly filled tank and did
fairly well. At the end of the first
race George Trapp was first with 79
lengths, or about two-thlr.ls of a
ml{e to his credit. P, Cunningham
was second and J. R. Gilley third.
Only four of the seniors cared for
the Arctic temperature and they could
not swim as far as the High school
boys. Four of them took the water
and they all succeeded In covering
44 lengths. - The names of these
heroes are .George Caydzen, Tom
Tratip. A. Davis and T. Porter.
Today the water will be properly
boated up. Yesterday tbo tank had
only just been filled and although a
I big flre was kept on all day It needs
a couple of days to jet the temperature ju3t right for comfort.

HATPIN PIERCES'EYE.
Unhappy Victim  of    Dame    Fashion
May Lose Sight.
Seattle. May 6.���Jabbed in the eye
by a long hatpin worn by an unidentified woman in a Second avenue street
car, E. J. Anderson will probably lose
the sight of hl3 right optic. The car
was crowded and, when lt started
with a jerk, the woman swayed toward j\nderson and the point of the
long pin penetrated the white of the
man's right eye, just above the Iris.
Anderson at flrst felt little pain
and went to his homo. There a
physician was summoned. Examlha-
t'nn rtiselo?e:l lbn serious nature of
the Injury an:l tlie man was sent to
the Noble Iiobi Unl for treatment. Up

the su'feier would lose the sight, of

The political situation in  Portugal,
according  to   Lisbon   advices,   is   unsatisfactory   and   positively   disquieting.   Everything has been torn down,
but nothing has been  built up.   Thi*
observation   is    not    confined  to  the
wreck of royalty, but to the wreck ol
those  forces   which   were   responsible!
for the downfall of royalty.   The idols f
of the revolution itself are broken and
dethroned.       The   present,   Ministry I
formed from the ranks of the extreme
wing of the Moderate partv at a time I

A JAPANESE LEGEND.
It Tells a Pretty Story of tha Origin ef
the Chrysanthemum.
Tbe Japanese buve nn Interesting
legeud In connection with the origin
cf the chrysanthemum. In a garden
bathed In tbe soft moonlight a young
pirl plucked a flower and commenced
to strip the petals to see If her Bance
loved ber trtily. Of a sudden n little
pod appeared before ber and assured
her that her fiance loved her passionately. "Your husband wlll live." he
added, "as many years ns the flower
which I will let you choose hns petals."
With these words be' disappeared.
The young girl hastened to search the
garden for a flower which should have
an abundance of petals, but each one
appeared to promise but a brief fa-
ture for ber beloved.
At length she picked a Persian carnation, and, with the aid of a gold
pin taken from her hair, she separated
each one of the petuls of the flower
so ns to Increase the number of folloles
nnd of the number of years accorded
by the god to her fiance. Soon under
her deft fingers 100. 200, 300 petals,
thin, pliant and beautifully curved,
bad been evolved, and tbe young girl
cried for Joy to think of the happy
-future which her ruse hnd assured her
fiance. So, runs the legend, was the
crystinthemum created one moonlight
night tn a Japanese garden, where silvery brooks murmured softly as they
run beneath the little bamboo bridges.

CRY  OF  THE  GIRAFFE.
It Is a Peculiar Sound Something Like
a Sheep's Bleat.
Those who rend tbe accounts of the
giraffe in tbe textbooks ami the descriptions given by travelers may
hnve noticed that no mention Is made
of Its voice. Sportsmen, in fact, allude to its apparent voicelessness.
Nor so far as tbe records go has it
ever been beard tn captivity. Up to
the present It appears tbnt no one
could say whether the cry of a giraffe
wns a groan, a bellow, a bleat or a
neigh; hence the record of the recent
experience of a naturalist ln east Africa, who has actually heard its voice,
is of special Interest.
Blnuey Percival, the naturalist In
question, spent the day iu concealment
c��?r a waterhole wbere tbe wild animals came to drink. He hnd nt times
seen giraffe nnd zebra drinking within thirty feet of him. While thus
watching he had the good fortune to
hear the giraffe.
it was making a bleating noise, bnt
Mr. Terclval says lt ls quite Impossible to describe the sound in writing.

HISTORIC FIRST NIGHTS.
Red Letter Events In th* Dramatic
History of Franc*.
Perhaps the most striking events In
the artistic history of France have
been the first performances cf some
of the great French plnys. In n few
cases also these occasions hnve marked the beginning of new epochs In tbe
social history of the country, so close
Is the connection between the social
development of the people nnd Its expression on tbe stage. Unless I am
mistaken, tbere hnve been but six unforgettable flrst nights since theaters
were established lu Paris.
Tbe tlrst occurred In l(!,'i7, when Cor-
nellle's "CId" took the capital by storm.
Forty years later Racine's "Andromache" created a similar sensation.
On the eve of the revolution. In 1784,
r.eiiiinuirchnis' "Marriage of Figaro"
wns received with such delirious enthusiasm that three people were stifled In the rush for seats. Id 1830
Victor Hugo. In spite of the determined opposition of n large body of reactionaries, set all I'aris lu an uproar
with his "Ilerual."
These mimes should be borne: In
mind: Cornellle, Racine, Benumarcbals
nnd Victor Hugo. Three of them at
least bave no superiors In the history
of French literature. Each bas one
amazing dramatic triumph to bis credit. Tbe other two of the six great
flrst nights were the 28th of December. J 897. nnd tbe 7th of February,
1010. Tbe occasions were respectively the performances of "Cyrano de
Bergerac" and "Chantecler," both by
Edmond Rostand. ��� Cincinnati Commercial Tribune.
A ROYAL FLUTE PLAYER.
Frsdsriok th* Great Used to Mov* Hll
Auditor* to Tear*.
Abdul Hamid used to amuse himself
wblle he wus enjoying life at Vlldls
kiosk by strumming "II Trovatore" on
tbe piano. George III. was fond of
shouting the melodies of Handellnu
choruses for the delectation of bis
court, but the world bus seen no real
royal musician since Frederick the
Great played his last tuue oh bis flute.
It seems Hint the king excelled In
aduglo movements. Into which he Infused a warmth and tenderness ot
feeling that would tuirdly have been
expected from the conqueror of Ross-
bach and the friend of Voltaire. "It
ls dlfllcult to listen to bis performances
without weeping." says one musician.
One reason wby he preferred adagios
wns ihnt be wus somewhat short of
brentli. which mnde him eschew orchestral iiccompnulmcnts for the more
delicate assistance of the clavichord
when he was practicing.
Toward the end of Ihe Seven Tears'
war be sat down to piny In a qunrlet
nnd nt the finish cried enthusiastically.
"It is us sweet ns sugur:" His com-
pnnious were uot so sure, for Frederick bud lost a tooth, nnd his lingers
had stiffened with gout. Finally ln 1778
be hud to give up his fiute playing, and
"1 have lost my best friend" wus the

From ench of tbe four knots start two
legs, one on each side, making eight In
all. The legs are three or four times
longer tbnn tbe body, but tbe odd
thing about tbem ls tbnt the alimentary tube into which tbe food goes
runs down Into every one of the legs,
so that whatever tbe spider eats circulates through his legs. and. In fact,
tte legs are like tbe body ln Internal
.structure. Another curious feature of
tbls form of life Is that tbe baby sea
spider Is not in the least like the
grownup of tbe same family. It ls
much more like a crab, but bow it develops from a crablike form is not yet
ascertained.- Exchange.

Imagine a thin, tall, bearded, clean

his complexion ranging In color from
that of the negro to Caucasian fairness,   clothed   In   richly   embroidered
j nndergnrraents. over which gracefully

The coarse brown Jellaba of camel's

"Almost too strange to be true," said
st woman who bad lost and found
again a piece of Jewelry a few days
-ngo. On arriving nt ber husband's office ln tbe Wall street district Rhe dis-

from nn ornament which sbe wore.
The prongs which held It bnd evidently worn nwny, and the stone was given

Fresh nir enthusiasts are fnmlllat

Catching Wild Ducks In England.
A novel method of capturing wild
ducks ts used In England. On small
lakes wbere tbe ducks are apt to stop
tor a short time a few tame ducks are
kept ns decoys, and a well trained
dog and some wire netting do tbe rest.
The dog Is trained to act like a fox.
and the wild ducks congregate ln large
numbers to frighten lt away from a
screen over which it runs back and
forth. Tho docks keep up a constant
quacking, and the dog retreats, being
pursued nntll tbe trapped fowl are
caugbt In tbe network, wltb a portion
dropped over the opening to prevent
tbeu- escape. At certain seasons of
the year thousands of wild ducks frequent tbe fen districts, aud tbese traps
bare been used very successfully to
provide game for some ot the large
preserves.���Harper's.

An Up to Dat* Fable.
A lion once Invited a fox to visit
blm In bis cave.
"I should be glad to call." said tbe
fox. "but 1 buve observed tbat an tne
tracks "are pointed toward .vour door,
uud there are none leading nway."
"Pooh!" said tbe lion. "That phenomenon may be attributed to toe
great esteem ln which 1 am beld oy
my guests. I treat them so well that
wben they leave they walk backwara
for a long distance to show their re-,
spect for me. You will meet a most
delightful and distinguished company
when you call."
"If you will give me tbe names and
addresses of a few of tbe survivors,"
answered the fox. "I wtll call and see
lf their reports are satisfactory. If
so I will accept yonr invitation."

Forests of Africa.
One of the great natural rn��a��nres
of Africa Is the Immense extra tropical
forest tbat extends almost unbroken
from the extreme southern end along
the eastern highlands to tbe equator.
There are gaps In It and tbe trees
change tn kind somewhat wltb change
of latitude, but upon the wbole It Das
tbe snme character throughout. Tbe
altitude above tbe aea changes regularly with decrease of latitude. Near
the cape the forest grows at sea level;
In Natal and tbe Transvaal Its altitude Increases to 3,000. 4.000 and
0,000 feet and on approaching the
equator It rises to 7,000 feet and final-
ly to 10.000 feet. In the eguntorlal
highlands the growth Is very vigorous,
and tbe forest Is enrichod wltb tbe
pencil cedar of AbyBslnlu. - Youth's

Taking Car* of the Heart.
A physician writes: "Life would be
prolonged by a little more attention to
the henrt, by paying a little respect to
the most faltbfnl servnnt we ever have.
Much good might he done also lf parents would teach their children the
danger of overtaxing tbe heart Tbey
should teach them to stop and rest a
few moments during their play when
they begin to feel tbe violent throbbing
of their hearts against the chest wall."
