Repetition of   Bosnian   Incident   Will
Not Be  Allowed���People Will
Fight   First.
London, Dec. 4.���Russia haa retorted to the rattling of the German
sword in the Balkan war tangle. She
has declared that she will not permit
a repetition of the methods used
when Austria occupied Bosnia and
"Such Intimidation will frighten nobody," exclaims the Novoe Vremya,
commenting on the German chancellor's giving prominence to the Idol of
The war parties both ln Russia and
Austria-Hungary seem to hold the
public platform for the moment
against the peaceably disposed minla
terB of those countries. Any untoward Incident or provocative act on
the pari of Servla would, in the opinion of the diplomats here ln a moment set Austria-Hungary In motion
and this probably would loosen forces
in Russia wliich tho government of
the Russian empire would find Itself
unable to resist.
The Novoe Vremya continues: "His
tory Is repeating Itself, but It Is noi
so easy to. force Russian diplomacy
Into a faint-hearted retreat."
The Immedlte withdrawal of the
vast Russian deposits ln the German
banks is advocated by many of tht
Russian journals.
Should Greece persist In her refusal
to adhere to the armistice signed yesterday, lt would necessarily throw
Bulgaria more closely Into the em
brace of Servia and give fresh encouragement to the Servian resistance
to the European powers who are prac
tically unanlmouB in condemning the
Servian demands.
If Austria-Hungary should attempt,
as has been suggested, to employ Roumania to keep Bulgaria quiet in the
event of an AuBtria-Servian war, It is
thought that such action would only
enlarge the area of conflict and pre
cinitate a general catastrophe. Any
intervention by Roumania, it is
argued, would inevitably compel Russia to take drastic action on behalf of
the Slavs in the Balkans.
Diplomats realize that the crisis de
mands immediate treatment and efforts to bring about an ambassadorial
conference as quickly as possible will
be renewed as it is thought that this
is the only means of bringing the necessary pressure Into plav to extinguish the incendiary tendency of the
extremists in the various countries
concerned in thl dispute.

Times  Correspondent   With    Turkish
Army  Has Criticism  for Artillery
of One Balkan SUte.
London. Dec. 4.���A correspondent
of the "Times," who has been with
the Turkish army since the battle of
Lille-Burgas, sends a criticism of the
Bulgarians. Among other things he
'Much has been written about the
excellence of the Bulgarian artillery
and the superiority of the Creusot
guns over the Krupp. All this is
more or less fantasy. The Crnennts
were better served, but not of better
quality than the Krupps. The Bul-
garlan gunners, however, are not extraordinarily good���in fact, thev
might be called bad. They did no'
support the Infantry advance prop
erly, and were timid in advancing
their batteries to really effective
"The Bulgarian Infantry are verv
slow, but are well trained, and made
good use of the ground In thn approaches. They are very useful with
Ihe rifle and of much the same fighting calibre as the European Turk, and
they owo their success over the latter only to the fact that thev were
better trained and more capably com
"It wlll be argued, In spile of these
criticisms, that the Bulgarian army
succeeded. But this success was only
partial. Now, we know the quality of
the army they put to flight eirlv in
the campaign, and see how they failed
to profit by the successes; how Ihey
gave the beaten Turkish army time
to reorganize and dig itself Into
Tchatalja ;how they failed hefore Ad
rianople. And we begin to realize
how indifferently the Bulgarians have
waged their successful war.
"The Turkish army, operating as a
fleld army, had to be beaten. Bul thai
It was beaten by armies really unequal to the responsibilities ensuing

advantageous resition than   those   he

Editor, Westminster Dally News:
Sir���I see that a proposal has been
made to form locks at the Second
Narrows with the view of surmounting the difficulties connected with the
different tide levels on the Pitt river
and Burrard Inlet, and the danger of
I the rapid current at the narrows.
The scheme of blocking the Inlet by
locks would result in the sea fish be
Ing excluded from tbe upper parts oi
the Inlet. This again would result lu
the sea birds being deprived of their
food. The healthful tidal flow or the
salt water would be destroyed and a
huge stagnant lake of fresh water,
poisoned with the leakage of oil
works and sewage would be the re
The remedy for the narrows is to
widen and deepen them and promote
a stronger tide in the upper parts.
Tho canal problem may be solved
by connecting the tidal waters of the
Inlet and those of the Coquitlam
river instead of the Pitt river. By sel
ecting the Coquitlam route, the distance to the tidal waters ls reduced
to about two and one-quarter miles
It has the further advantage of connecting with the Fraser river at r.
point where the tide level must be
Svery near that on the inlet, so all inconvenience through difference in
level ls avoided.
Tt would also dispose of the dlffl
culty In the Pitt river scheme of thr
flooding of the Coquitlam river. By
this plan the canal would join the Co
quitlam stream at Its high water Vdf
level near the Intersection of the
river by the Western Canada role

Tht Fine Tribute Caitelar Paid to
Amadous of Savoy.
The numerous experiments tried
and rejected by the Spanish nation
dt'ing thc last century included the
short lived government of 1871-3, when
a very worthy prince, Amadeua of
Savoy, second son of Victor Emmanuel, understook the difficult business
of being king of Spain. Amadeus had
to contend not only with the Republicans and with those who desired
the restoration of the Bourbon dynasty, but also with the country's rooted
In a boo'.- entitled "The Secret His
tory -f the Court of Spain" Hre given
instances of that bravery that won
for thc young Italian king the admiration, at least, of his Spanish subjects.
On a hot evening the king arid
queen were returning to the palace
after listening to some music in the
gardens of the Bucn Retiro. Suddenly a vehicle opposed Uie passage of
their carriage l>v crossing just in
front. The coachman checked the
horses nnd prevented a collision, hut
just then a shot was directed toward
the roysl party.
At this the king spranj boldly to
his feet and exclaimed:
"Here is the king! Fire at him,
not at the others!"
But no further attempts were made
at assassination, and the retinue
reached the pnlnce in safety.
To the king the late hours of the
court were particularly disagreeable.
At work at 6 in thc morning, he rang
for his breakfast at 8. Astonishment
was on the lackey's face; it had never
been customary for their ex-majesties

Dangerous Occupation of ths Dlvsr
and His Rewards.
Broome, on the northwest coast ot
western Australia, bids fair to become
a veritable Eldorado for those engaged
in the pearl and shell trade, for pearls
valued at many thousands of pounds
have been recently found there. Unlike the Ceylon and Persian Gulf pearl
fishers, who dive naked, the Broome
diver has the beneflt ol the most up-
to-date inventions; he wears a complete diving dress, and, relying on a
constant supply of air, remains under
water for hours at a time.
The fleet of pearling luggers, of
which there are ntjw 326, sail at high
tide from their headquarters in
Broome barbor to the shell beds, some
distance off, where they remain for
many weeks without returning to
land. A schooner is stationed on the
groiyid to act as a general store, while
other schooners ply between the boats
and the shore, bringing supplies and
mails, and returning with the shell.
Seven colored men are allowed to
each lugger, five of theae forming tho
crew the other two being the diver
and his tender, who for the time beintf
Is the most important man on board,
for every one must obey hid orders instantly. Malays and Japanese form
the majority of the divers; although
the latter are noted for their industry
and skill, the former are better able
to stand the pressure of deep water.
At day break the diver commence*
work. Donning hiB dress, screwing his
helmet securely, and grasping his life
line, with which he signals to his
tender, he descends a short ladder and
sinks to the ocean bed, where with a
few ascents for rest and refreshment.
be remains till sundown. On board
two men work continually pumping
down air, and the tender, his hand on
the iife line, and alert for the slightest signal, directs the lugger's course
as it drifts in the wake of the man
below. In shallow water the diver's"
risk is small; he is secure from
sharks, and if careful avoids Die deep
holes, which mean danger; but in
deep water the danger becomes extreme. The high pressure can be
borne only ior a few minutes at a
time and many a main owing to a trifling delay has been brought to the surface, living, indeed, yet destined to be
a wreck for the re.-t of his life. About
20 divers lose their lives annually;
but many more are permanently injured.
Skillful divers are much sought
after by the boat owners; during tho
season, whicii ia.-t.-i for nine months,
an expert man will raise flve tons of
shell, sometimes six. His services arc
retained during Uie lying-up season
st Christmas, sums varying from $750
to fl,000 being advanced to a skillful
man. While at work the diver receives $10 per week and 6125 per ton
of the shell raised. Shell is opened on
hoard tlie schooner, and the upener is
a man of importance, for, in spite ot
careful supervision, it is easy to steal
tho pearls. He gets from $25 to $50
per month in addition to 10 per cent,
of tiie value of the pearls found. The
greater part of the profit arises from
the shisl, whicii at present fetches
61,130 per ton but has occasionally
mour.tixl to $2,000. The cost of raising la $500 per ton.
Dealers in pearls must have an annual license; but in spite of this a
good deal of illicit traffic goes on. The
opener frequently steals pearls and
always.finds agents to pay him for the
"snide.'' as stolen pearls nre called;
mon travel continually on coasting
steamers between Singapore and
Broome for this purpose.

For instance: Suppose you deposit $1C0 in a bank
and leave it there for one year; what returns do
you get ? You receive three per cent, interest from
the bank for the use of that money for one year,
which means that your $150 has earned you the
magnificent sum of $4.50 in one year. Will you get
rich on this ?

your money in the bank at 3 per cent. I have only to

Christian Mountaineer Who Lives
In ths Rocky Country on the Con-
fines of Turkey In Alia Has a Passion For War and Will Fight on
the Slightest  Pretext.
Those familiar with conditions in the
Ottoman Enipiri see tremendous danger in the recent outbreak in the
Berana district of Albania where
Christians were butchered by Mohuni-
medan ...aauts, aided by Turkish
trcvp*. Of oil Ihe peoples of the Moslem world tho Albanians ure the most
fanatical followers of the Prophet and it is said by travelsrs in the
south ot Europe that it the worst came
to thc worst the Sultan could tuke
refuge in Albania Co-day and defy Uie
world,  says  a  recent  writer.
All over southeastern Europe one
hears ol t'ie strange customs among
those Albanians. When we planned a
tour into the province, it was to have
embraced the Sea of Scutari. To go
further, however, meant becoming involved in the most repellent cuBtom
ever met with >���; Europe. In the Gan-
aleser-Thal you have to ('rink hospitality with the peasant hosts, all from
me and the same glass, and in Turkey
one is frequently compelled to share
the luncheon oi some li'thy individual; but in Albania, to credit th'>su
claiming to have ventured into its
fastnesses, you drink blood with your
host and in this wise:
You meet your host on ihe neutral
boundary line. He is in the milky
white suit of an Albanian lord, the tall
white fet throwing in relief the long
hair, straggling at each side of the
brow, and the fierce liery eyes that
pierce one's soul with tlieir lustre. No
pity, uo sympathy, nothing but greed
and Sery hute and bigotry can one
read in those Hushing pupils. The
ho't takes his knife from lis belt and
cut a gash in his left hand, somewhere
on the back. As the blood trickles he
lets it How into one of tha small Albanian drinking cups, bought at
Cattaro or in Montenegro, from the
traders. Then you, too, must do the
sume, und to the mixed blondd in the
cup, wine from the village casks is
added. He takes a gulp, you take a
gulp, and you are sworn "blood brothers" and are safe anywhere in the
bounds of his elan.
Time and again, be this us it may,
for tliere are some Albanians who deny
it just as there are Sioux who would
tell you Jthey  no longer hold the Sun
Dance,  on  the  railway  trains  in   the
Balkans an   Albanian will  be seen to
dart and  throw his arms about some
I other white-clad Albancie in the most
I affectionate of greetings.
I     "That is  my  brother!"  he will ex-
I' pl'iin and the meaning is involved m
'the  bliod   brotherhood.    Unless  one
drinks the blood, it Is stated, u Chris-
ti n  may   bind  tho   Albanian  lv  the
most solemn  oath beiore  '.ikin^ him
j as guide at u labulous sum ami '.hen,
I once the notions enters his lieod, the
:] Albanian may deliberately  shoot  you
down in some lone trail in tlie moult*
tains, for if the Moslem deem the occasion  good  he   h:is   nn  he-itanc..   in
breaking   any   oath   mail j   to  the   infidel.
Facts about the fanatic upland Albanian are hard to obtain,
Ano'.lier custom laid to the door of
the mountain Albanian is that which
obtained among the early Cloths and
Vandals and this regards the chil-
die... When a babe is born in Albania, it is claimed and we heard the.-c
claims over and over in the Balkan-,
tin father exercises the right to judge
if it shull live or die; and since of " e
elect, exposure and hardship weed out
tho majority, thete seems little likelihood of Albania becoming over-populated.
Some forgotten wave of emigration
in the centuries past, uiuroone.l a lil
tie '.and of Albanese on the Dalmatian coast, near the eity of Zan and
in the time when Volker Wanderun-
gen were the order of the day and tin
coe t of the Adr.atic swarmed with

ways into the interior where their
town of Eriz/.io is  now built.
Bit by bit civilization found its way
I down among the Dalmatian archipelagoes tind to Zani, where the mara-
jschino trude has brought wealth and
I opulence. But the Albanese profited
only indirectly by this nnd as tlie

Explorer    Returning   After   Fruitless
Search  In Antarctic Seat.
News has been received in Christ-
church, N.Z.. of thc scientific expedition in the Antarctic, which sailed Bt
the beginning of the summer under
the charge of Dr. Mawson. The exploring ship Aurora has returned from
her winter cruise after carrying out a
trip of over three weeks. As the ship
was not required until November,
when she will return to the ice region
to bring back the leader and his
party, she wns engaged on scientiflo
investigations in sub-Antarctic seas.
The Aurora is in charge of Capt. ,1. K.
Davis, and among Uiose aboard are a
tuxidermist and a cinematograph
operator. The wliole of the ship's
company are reported as being in good
health. One of the objects of the
cruise was not attained. This was
the discovery of the reported Royal
C.x.ip-ny's islands. Fou.- days of the
cruiFi was spent, in searching the
ocean for sight of these islands, but
not a truce cou'.d be found. The reported islands were said to be in two
different positions, but though both
positions nd th? sea around were
thoroughly explored there was no
sign of the supposed islands.
It wos on May 17 that the Aurora
left Sydney, sailing by way of Bass
Strait to the 140th meridian, and after
his exhaustive search it is the opinion
of Capt. Davis that the islands do
not exist anywhere near where the
chsrts indicated. He admits, however, that even in comparatively clear
weather Macquarie Island could only
be seen from a distance of eight miles,
and rough weaUier made it impossible
to take soundings. Indeed, so boisterous was the weather that on not a
single day wis it possible for them to
use the :ounding machine; and
though several attempts were made
thes? generally resulted in a loss of
some of the gear. On one occasion,
however, a depth of 2.000 fathoms waa
found by the sounding wire. The
cinematograph apparatus was not
us.d owing to bad light and the inability to get the machine steadily
fastened to the deck.
When Mucquarie  Island was reached it was ' und that the five men of
Dr.  Mawson's p-irty  were doing good
work, and   he wireless station was in
constant    service.       Messages     wero
caught   as   far   as Fiji   and Western
Australia,  but the gales and  the  hu-
midit.' of the   atmosphere   interfered
bully    with    the    installation.      The
aerials  hnd   h.'en  blown  down   twice,
but had  been erected  again,  and  the
water   which   cools   the  petrol  engine
had   boen   frozen   often   nnd   causedI
more trouble.    It is the belief of thel
operator  that   the  messages  sent out I
are being received ut the has.' in the!
Far South.    There   has   been   a rich I
fiel I   of   Artarctic   fauna   for   the   explorers  to  study.    Contrary  to  ordin-l
ary belief, it has been established by
the expedition that the sea elephants
are   still   very   numerous.    At   times
hundreds of these animsit could he)
seen i.i shoals, and on the shore seal
leopards,  whieh are perhaps the most j
beautiful  of  sc-a  animals,  were  seen
at intervals.
Penguins vith their fnmilies roved
along the beaches, nnd the Mnori
hens, . hieh were taken to Macquarie
Island snme years ago, hsve so multiplied that they were seen in hundreds. Among the specimens whieh
have been secured for the Canterbury
Museum are many new ones. A sea
elephant which was obtained is nearly
20 feet in length, and weighed more
than a ton. The attempts at trawling, however, were not so fortunate.
owing to rough seas. On two occasions the trawl was let down, but the
wind and tide carried the vessel nway
very rapidly, and the trawl was damned and tl i net torn. There are five
members of the expedition at Mac
quarie Island, and 20 with Dr. Maw-
wm are at lhe base in Adelio Land.
E' .ht are ot the secondary base neal
Aussberg. It is expected the expedition will return to civilization in
April next.

In a north of England town there
was a shiftless man who would never
accept gifts outright, although he was
always depending on charity, says
Al Priddy in his book, "Through the

all the cows were up to their knees
in water. Not ono stood clear on
the vivid green hills.
"Jorvey," she remarked to the old

Climbing Tls-Pln.
An unusual method of robbery in
t music hull is described by the London correspondent ol Tho Sheffield
Daily Telegraph. A visitor standing
at the back of the stalls saw the diamond pin in the cruvst of a man in
the stalls suddenly begin to climb,
apparantly nf Its own accord, in a
series of jerks. The man who owned
it had his hands In his pockets, and
on each side a man in evening dress
was smoking a cigarette. The next
jerk cams just at the moment when
these two men with wonderful precision put (heir cigarettes to tlieir
t mouths. A word to on attendant was
| enough. The two "gentl"men" in
evening clothes went quietly. My
friend later picked up the long horsehair thnt had stretched from the
little finger of oru to the little finger
of the otlier.

Decorations for the nursery are

who often prefers to execute her own
designs ln order to express her Individual taste upon ber little ones. What
are called "life motifs" or studies from
nature are at present popular designs
for decoration and can easily be

Trees for the motifs are also excellent and should be conventional le

to catch the upper and lower lids to

fhe Whits Eskimos Will Soon Psrlsh
Under Its Ministrations.
It is with conflicting emotions that
me hears of preparations already
making to raise out of barbarism and
paganism 'lie white Eskimos discovered in the far north of Canada by Dr.
Stefansson. Missionaries, unquestionably inspired hy the highest motives and nobly prepared to encounter
cruel hardship snd evin death for the
good of this long-lost tribe, sre planning :> live with and t.?ach them, and
presumably fur dealers and other
trade's will be equally or more
prompt in doing their part toward
convincing thc supposed descendants
of Liif Ericson thst Stone Age fashions are out of date.
Ot course complaint about the inevitable is useless. The white Eskimos have been found. That means
the end of their isolation, but it also
means, almost certainly, their rapid
destruction. N > tribe or race as delicately adjusted to �� peculiar environment us then Eskimos must be to
have survived wh"re they ure. ever
yet long withstood contact with a
higher and stronger civilization. The
common result of such contact has
been a ruthless extermination of the
weaker people, either hy war or bIov
ery. WliPn the efforts have heen made
with the kindly intention of civilizing
and elevating the barbarians the effects upon them have usually been
equuily   'isnstrous.
While the inhabitants of Tierra del
Fuego lived out of doors with no
other protection, where it snows every
month in the year, than a single skin
slung over the windward shoulder,
they were healthy rnd fully ahle with
tlieir rude Implements to hold their
own against their dreadful climate.
When they were persuaded to wear
clothes and Hv in ral houses��� and
to struggle with the vices as well as
the virtues of civilization���of course
they cou'.d not do in a lifetime what
it has taken us 'housamls of years to
learn, and they proceeded to die off
with great rapidity.
This experience has be��n repeated
a hundred times on all of the out-of-
the-way comers ol the earth, and
though th- other Eskimos have not
disappeared os fast ns savages usually do under civilized tutors, yet their
numbers have rapidly waned, as every
traveler in their country has noted.
And the other Eskimos wen1 particularly fortunate in having tutors who
did not try to do too much for them
or to chajije their habits too speedily.
Th-V whi': trill-? may he treated with
equal discretion, hut there is every
probability that (or them. loo. the approach of civilization will be fatal.
Alberta Enthusiastic.
The province of Alherta ia enthusiastically taking to the single-tax idea,
and many agricultural communities
in the provinc wiil he organized this
year under the rural municipality
act. passed by the last Legislature
and effective in 1!U3. The n"w system provides that taxes shall be
levied equally upon all taxable land
in the municipality, according to the
assessed value of such lund. Th" ns-
s.ssment plan is ha.sed upon the following provision in the rural municipality act:
"Land shall be assessel at its actual
cash value as it would be appraised
in payment of a inst debt from a
solvent debtor, exclusive from the
value ot any huilding erected thereon
or of other increase of valua caused
by sn-v other exp-nditure of labor or
capita! thereon."
The question of taxation is dealt
with entirely by the council of the
rural municipality. The new act fixes
the limit to taxation for municipal
purposes at 10 mills on the dollar. It
is not expected that a rate will be
levied lo exceed JB per 160 acres, and
in many Cases the rate levied will not
exceed |3 or $4.
The act provides that eviry municipality sha'.l, in so far as it is possible, comprise an area of 18 miles
square, or 324 square miles, and all
municipalities shallow laid out on a
uniform plan, as tha conditions of the
system of iu* Dominion land survey
and the physical features of the
province will allow.

B*caua* th* Laundress Is Forced te

cause of these after effects?   Certainly
