Instantly killed today by a young anarchist named Manuel Pardlnas.
l'ardlnaa fired four shots at Premier
Canalejas. Two of tbe shots struck
the statesman behind tbe right ear and
he fell dead on tbe spot.
The assassin attempted suicide, and
it was afterwards thought that he was
dead, but when he had been carried to
the hospital be was found to be living.
Not since the throwing of the bomb
at the carriage of King Alfonso on
May 31, 1906, while the King was re
turning from the church after his marriage, has an event created such general consternation and such public
sympathy. So far as can be learned
at present the assassination seems to
be In no way part of a widespread
Plot or revolutionary movement, but
an isolated crime for which the exact
motive remains obscure.
The assassin, who was of Spanish
birth, came recently from Buenos
Ayres by way of Paris. Consequently
nothing ls known of him.
The King has-appointed the foreign
minister. Marquis Manuel Garcta-
Prleto as premier pro tem, and tbc
Liberal government which Senor Canalejas conscientiously conducted fo.*
several years, remains In power.
Premier Canalejas was walking
alone when the assassin approached
and fired at him from behind.
A number of people rushed to the
spot and picked the premier up. He
was flrst carried to a neighboring
pharmacy, whence he was borne back
to the ministry of the interior, after a
doctor had declared that he was dead.
His body was laid on a table in one
of the offices.
King Alfonso v.-as immediately summoned and stood over the corpse with
tears in his eyes. His Majesty said a
short prayer, and then after klsslns
the minister, returned to the royal palace..

said lt was not right that they should
be brought over here ln the car���a

The court house was condemned as
Insufficient for the needs of the district, and as a result a number of
cases had to be dealt with over in
'it is not fair to the city," declared
Mr. Wilkie. "Vancouver 'got what she
wanted and there is no reason why
New Westminster Bhould not also."

Canaejas always retained the leading
place. He had much to do with the
signing of the agreement between
Spain and France on the question of
the future of Morocco, wblcb was recently satisfactorily settled. The plan
introduced by Seior Canalejas for the

Spain caused a rupture of relations between that country and the Vatican.
These have since been resumed and
the question of separation is being discussed with a view to a friendly settlement. The Spanish Government,

special vote of thanks as were also
Messrs. Sherriff, Rose �� Co.; who had
bo generously allowed the association
the use of a part of their offlce for
several months.
The next general meeting will be
held on tlie first Tuesday in December at 4 o'clock ln tbe afternoon. The

because it was thought that greater
numbers would be able to attend.
Story of Progress.
Tbe president's report presented by
Mr. J, W. Cunningham, in the absencs
of Dr. F. P. Smith, outlined the activities of tbe association since the
last regular meeting held in September. He explained that no meeting
had been beld in Octcber because
plans for a financial campaign were
being organized at that time.
Action taken by the committee of
control with regard to (he grain elevator question and tne navigation of
the Fraser river was touched upon.
"One of tbe most important matters
taken up during the month." it wai
stated "was that of raising funds. Considerable discussion has taken place
on this question since tben and arrangements are In progress for enlisting the support of the business men
of the city. Just as these were coming to a head, however, a proposal
was made that this association amalgamate with the Board of Trade,
which has resulted in still further delay regarding the campaign fund.
However, efforts ara being made to

Realizing That Triple Entente Is
Earnest, Power Will Not Insist
on Former Course.
London, Nov. 12.���There Is a lull ln
the news of battle in .the theatre of
the Balkan war save one report that
landing parties from Turkish warships which had bombarded Rodosto
have driven the Bulgarians from the
town, but tbere is increasing interest
in all the capitals in Europe in Mr.
Asquith's speech In which witb the
knowledge that the British navy is
ready for a fight, he declared the Balkan allies must not be robbed of the
fruits of their victory.
The feeling now is with Austria realizing that the members of the Triple
Entente are determined that full justice must be done In the partition ot
Turkey and finally agree that Servla
have the "little window" on the Adriatic, that the danger of a general
European war will vanish.
Of course there were lmportanf
meetings between the Austrian Emperor and his generals and statesmen
yesterday and the impression is bein; spread that the dual monarchy
wlll not recede from its uncompromising attitude, but military experts here
feel certain that when Austria realizes
that Servla will not back down; that
Russia, with a million men, Is ready
to march over the border; that
Fiance, with her army In splendid
condition asd Great Britain, with her
navy all ready for any eventuality, are
determined tbat the question of the
alteration of the map of Europe must
be decided by a conference te which
air tbe powers, Including the Balkan
confederation must take part, she will
agree that the territorial readjustment must be made by the representatives of all Europe.

"Consolidated" System a
Manitoba Children.
As n consequence of the scattered
population of Manitoba, whnt is
Known as "Consolidation of Schools"
has been brought forward. Consnlidn-
tloa simply means the merging of two
or more small, inefficient school districts into one larger and more efficient one, large rnough in numbers to
produce a scliool, graded, if possible,
with energy and spirit so strong thnt
with added life, good work can be
done and large enough in territory
that the burden of taxation may not
be too heavy and nt the same tima
may produce suflicicnt fund to carry
on the work in nn up-tn-dute and
progressive manner, says M. Hall-
Jones in the Canadian Courier,
j A necessary accompaniment of
consolidation is the conveyance to
and from the schooj each day at the
public expense, all children of school
age who live over a certain distance
from th? school house, thus eliminating the element of unfairness that
now exists in the rural schools owing
to the different distances at which the
children live from the school, and at
the same time placing the cost of
conveyance on t'ie whole district. In
Manitoba consolidated districts, all
pupils nre conveyed who live over
one mile from the school house. It
i has become customary to use covered
vans for conveyance. These nro not
always heated, but in some cases,
carbon foot warmers or sonnstone are

consolidnttd,  and   not  less   than   two
thousand       pariia!ly       consnlidn'ed,
schools attest to the remarkable ndap-

by Department of Agriculture.
The Provincial Department of Agriculture has sent out a circular letter
to the various boards of trade in the
province Expressing its willingness to
partly finance classes in fruit packing
in accordance with its policy of the
past three years, if such could be organized by some responsible local
iody. I
The packing schools proved even
more popular in 1912 tban previously,
au\d It is elated it is expected from the

that tliere will be a great growth in
the work this winter. It is hoped that
this year the schools will be placed in
every frpit district of the province
where a sufficient number of pupils
eaa be secured.
The classes will be instructed by a
thoroughly efficient and experiencei
expert employed by the,government.
The schools have already demonstrated their efficiency by helping the
growers meet the competition of Oregon and Washington in fruit packing.
The experience and standing of the instructors secured is guaranteed by the

history���"when the Blaek Death slew
its thousands, charitable people
bought fields just outside the walls of
mediaeval London to give consecrated
burial to the dead. One of these
plague graveyards was founded a Carthusian monastery, and many of the
wails and much of the ground plan ot
this Charterhouse beside London remain till to-day. When London was
"small and white and clear" in the
fourteenth century the site of Charterhouse was outside the walls of the
City. Now, however, those who would
visit "the haunt of ancient piece that
close neighbors the blatancy of Smith-
field," find it hidden not (ar from the
centre of the metropolis, which
stretches miles in all directions
around it; so hidden, indeed, that
many people who visit the show
places of London yet overlook the
Charterhouse, and so miss what is not
unjustly described ns the finest example of the Elizabethan nobleman'*
palace  remaining in  London.
The  Charterhouse  be/an  ns  a Carthusian monastery, and remained such
for over a century and a half,  when
it became one of the most determined   centres   of   resistance   to   Henry
VIII. and his reforming zeal.   So determined   was   the   resistance   that  it
was only finally overcome after such

Pacific Ocean Currsnts,
Reports received by the French government from its consular officers in
Hawaii throw light, it ls thought, on
certain problems of ethnography. Not
very long ago a little schooner, dismantled and wltb its-rudder gone as
tbe result of a tempest, was drifted by
winds and ocean currents from Tahiti
to Hawaii after eighty-one days. Hawaiian traditions declare that tn ancient days people came from Tahiti,
drifting wltb Ibe currents, and settled
tbe islands. The adventure of tbe dismantled schooner seems to prove tbe
possibility of sucb a migration, and It
is suggested that the currents of the

dgbt on the distribution of tbe native
races among tbe island groups.���Harper's Weekly. .

The Crack Hibernian Forward Should
Strengthen Westminster Line-up���
Four More Captures.
Witb the capture of Tomllnson, tbe
crack forward of the Hibernians,
Drummond, a former Scottish leaguer
wltb Queen's Park and Falkirk; McQueen, of Woolwich Arsenal; Robertson, another Scottish leaguer, wbo
made his debut with the city team on
Saturday last, and finally the return of
Phil Samphor to fill the position between the sticks, the unbroken record
of the Hovers in the senior league
should continue and culminate ln the
championship being brought to New
Westminster, together with other trophies.
Manager Grant has been on a still
hunt for the past few days and following the transfer of Tomllnson,
made tracks for the rest of the bunch
with the result that signed registration forms from all of the five are In
his possession'.
The return of Samphor is a surprise,
but his love for the game simply
would not allow him to watch the
matches from the sidelines. The old
Stoke player reports himself ln tho
best of form and should be able to fill
in his old position as goalkeeper.
Tomlinson has made a name for himself the past two seasons on the scoring line and is out and out the best
man among tbe attacking force of the
lliHrrnimis. Manager Grant obtained
the sanction of the league representa-
to players who have not yet signed
with Eastern teams.
Patrick is making good with the fans
of this province ln agreeing not to
touch players already under contract.
The lacrosse war of the past summer
demonstrated tbe fallacy of this move
and, profiting from the disastrous results of every lacrosse team last season, the hockey men are playing a
game which wlll meet the favor of all
sport-loving people. Let the Wanderer
manager return Hyland and Johnson
anji all will be well, but if not, ther.*
will be something doing.

Sapperton Park Needs Clipping���Medals Co to Winners of League���
Cup Later.
Two games will be played by city
league teams on Saturday afternoon
the Moose vs. Burnaby, at Sapperton
Park, while the 104th and Sapperton
will mix at Moody Square. These fixtures were decided upon at a league
meeting beld last evening. Tim Mahoney will handle the Sapperton game,
while W. Newsome ls the official appointed for Moody Park. All games
from now on will start at 2.30 Instead
of three o'cloek.
Several, of the teams voiced a protest at the present condition of Sapperton Park, the grass being so long
as to make football nearly impossible.
The parks committee of the city council will be approached tbls week to see
if tbere Is a remedy.
Another Important matter handled
last evening was tbe decision to award
medals to tbe winners of the league,

Habit Is on Increase in London, Both
Among Upper and Lower Classes.
London, Nov. 12.���Cigarettes smok
ing among English women of the middle classes is on the increase.
Not only does the woman of social
standing smoke in public and in her
own home, but her example is followed by a large proportion of tbe business class of women.
A correspondent gives an Instance
of this fact, showing that women now
smoke In public with the utmost unconcern.
"1 was recently travelling North,"
he writes, "and dined in the third-
class restaurant car. Facing me at
the table was a woman obviously ot
some refinement, and 1 hestitated to
light my cigar after the meal.
"To my great surprise, however, she
shortly afterwards produced a cigar
etie caae end began to smoke. I then
noticed that out of twelve women din
:ng in this third-class restaurant car
seven were also smoking cigarettes.'
From enquiries it was found recent
ly that middle-aged women who a fe.\
years ago would be horrified at th.
light of a woman with a cigarette no*
cheerfully condone the smoking habit
among women.
Many railway officials said that they
observed a considerable Increase ir
the number of women who smoke���
and that a great many smoke ln the
ordinary third-class railway carriages.
Another example of the increase in
the smoking habit is the fact that
women after taking luncheon in a
railway buffffet adjourn to a lounge to
smoke a cigarette and drink a cup of
Other instances were of women who
smoke in the street and outside theatres in a pit queue���though this Is at
present somewhat rare.

hava been drifting further and further

there is now a feeling in English society circles that the breach is to be

Hitherto the duke hns had access to
the children, under conditions, but as
they grow older tliey appear to care
less for ilis society. There is no suggestion that the Duchess of Marlborough has any intention cf breaking

irritation that the children should prefer to see tlieir mother than to visit

Unique Profession Found Amor.gst ihe
A peculiar profession that hns been
in existence for a great number of
years in some of the influential synagogues of the metropolis is that oi a
"minyan man."
The word "minynn," which is ol
Hebrew origin, denotes a quorum of
. ten aduit males above the age of thirteen necessary to attend a place of
worship to ei able a service to be fully and properly conducted���in other
words, the minimum number of worshippers for a complete congregational service. Unless ten or more are
present, most iinportnnt parts of a
service have to bu omitted.
The reason for this universal custom, whieh is an essential in Hebrew
congregations, and strictly adhered to
by orthodox Jewry, derives its significance from .-the words nf the Psalmist which says. "God standeth in the
congregation of Gol." thus signifying
that the Divine glory rests in the
midst of the congregation when this
number is present. Now the Kast London synagogues and other minor congregations situated in populated Jewish quarters do not. as n rule, employ
"minyan men," or professional worshippers. There are sufficient voluntary attendants at all the services at
these places without them- It is only
the magnificent synagogues comprising the "United Synagogue," one of
thc most powerful bodies governing
the religious affairs of the community,
whicii nre situated in some of the mast
aristocratic quarters of London, who
employ "minyan men." This is owing to the laxity of members and others in attending.
These men, who are drawn from
the foreign element of the community
resident in the ghettoes of London,
possess all the features of their race.
the typical beard, a symbol of orthodoxy, and, above all, simplicity' of
dres3, which is in accord with their
humble calling. Tho>y are always
punctual in their attendance, and seldom stay away from their respective
synagogue. Any day they may be
seen entering or waiting outside any
of the West Knd synagogues in readiness to play their important part in
the daily services, which are held
morning and evening. Some ore middle-aged, but the majority are elderly
men, who have already surpassed
their usefulness in other spheres of
The remuneration of the "minyan
men" varies according to the position
and status of their congregation, but
usually ranges from four to seven
shillings per week, exclusive of extras. The extras to which the men
look forward to are these: (1) Tlie anniversary of the death of a member's
parents, when that particular member
has to recite a special prayer, wliich
cannot be said without tlie quorum of
worshippers, and in commemoration of
the event it is customary to distribute
charity, and nearly always a benevolent person will leave a sum for distribution amongst the humble "minyan men"; (2) an important confirmation, viz., when a male attains the
age of thirteen; (3) a wealthy wedding;
(4) a memorial strvi?e.

liis footing, and as the surface of tlie

soon  being  whirled  dowu  a gully at
an   alarming   pace,   sometimes   head
foremost,  at   others   the   reverse.     It

Canterbury Cathedral, like most
grtat cut icdrals, is decorated witli innumerable r.ichcs for statues, /t Canterbury a series of these niches is occupied with statues of Kind's and
QuiM'ns of England, and there nre only
four niches left unoccupied. An old
tradition has it tbat when all lhe
niches are tilled the throne ol F.ngljlid
will come to an end. yueen Victoria
was approached with a view to a
statue of herself being placed in oie
of the four remaining niches, but le r

Famous English Military Order May
Be .Reduced In Number.
There is a proposal on foot to reduce tl.e number of the Military
Knights ot Windsor and to do away
with the lower foundation. At present
the hody consists of a governor and
twelve knights on the upper, or royal,
foundation and live on the lower. It
is an ancient institution, having been
founded by Edward III. ns an adjunct
to his famous Order of the Garter.
The Military Knights, or Poor
Knights as they were known in those
days, were first selected by tlie original Knights of the Garter from
amongst tlie number of impoverished
soldiers, who, after lighting their country's battles abroad, found themselves
in the autumn of life fallen into necessity and decay. The number was
fixed at twenty-four, hut was shortly
afterwards raisod to twenty-six.
Provision for their mninteiiui.ee was
included to the rich lands granted to
the newly-established College of St.
George, where they were incorporated
under thc control of the Custos, or
Dean. At their foundation houses were
built for thein to reside in, and they
were allowed one shilling a duy tor
their sustenance, the precise sum
granted to the canons of St.
George's Chapel, and derived from thu
same source. King James 1., commiserating their poverty, gave them su
additional shilling per day. By command of King William IV. they wear
a handsome uniform, similar to that
of unattached officers of the army, and
they used formerly to be compelled,
under a penalty, to attend Divine service daily in the chapel. In fact, Ihey
formed part of the ecclesiastical and
military foundation.
The history of this partnership between priest and soldier has not proved wholly uneventful. Shortly after
the death of Edward III. arose the
first of a long series oi disputes tliat
have only subsided in quite recent
years. The Knights accused the dean
of sequestrating the fines ��� Is. per
diem���for non-.ttendance in chapel, instead of dividing the money among
the remainder of tiie Knights, as directed by the statute. The dean retaliated with a uot unfounded charge
of immorality against certain of tlie
veterans, while one was declared guilty of continual!/ appearing late, sleeping during the progress of Divine service, and retiring before its conclusion The Chancellor of England in-
st.tuttd a thorough investigation, with
the result that the dean and canons
were ordered in future to share their
revenues with the knights in sueii
manner as had been directed by the
Some half a c��i:tury later further
trouble cropp-.'d Up between the parties, owing to nonpayment on the pait
of the eiergy, and again the latter were
cynipeiled to disgorge. Matters came
to a crisis in the reiirn of Edward
IV., when, ths differences seeming
irreparable, the dean und canons
contrived to obtain a new statute
permitting them to absolve themselves
for ever from all responsibilities of the
Knights. Tliere does not appear t"
hav_' l een any division ui revenue, and
,t is not certain what means were
forthcoming for the support of the old
soldiers, but that the foundation preserved its existence is clear from the
(act that continual pet.tions were
made to t'.ie crown for repeal of the
statute oi Edward IV.
During the reign oi Henry VIT. the
Knights enieri'd a charge a_"nm-t tlie
canons cf withholding a share of a
la.-t of herrings, an annual presentation to the College by the Corporation
of Yarmouth, a custom dating back to
the time of Edward III. The Knights
per.-evered in their appeals Without
success, until King Henry VIII. pitying their forlorn conditions, gave orders for the erection of the pre.Jfcnt
buildings, which were afterwards completed by Qu.>eri Mary.

Three Vital Matters.
"Three Important matters have been
taken up during the month." continued
the report. "Those are the congestion
of the local Land Registry Office, the
Port Moody car line, and the lightship at the Sandheads.
"Messrs. W. Cl. McQuarrie,    J.    C.
Blair and J. Agar proved themselves
a very efficient special committee to
deal  with  the  Land  Registry  Office,
and brought in a most exhaustive ac-.
count showing the conditions preval-,
ing there and suggesting a practical
remedy.   This report was adopted and :
the matter taken up with the Premier |
and Attorney-General and with all th;:
j Organizations of the district likely tui
be interested in the matter.   The New
I Westminster Trades and Labor Council has unanimously endorsed the association's stand and asked us when
we send a   delegate    to    Victoria   to
speak on their behalf as well as our
own.   The Board of Trade has also ap
pointed their president to act on the
same delegation, which will go to Victoria as soon as Sir It. McBride and
Mr. Bowser return from Ottawa.
Lightship is Back.
"The matter of  the  lightship  was I
taken up energetically and a wire waa
sent to Mr. Taylor, our member, who
immediately interviewed the authorities, who gave   a   promise   that   the |
lightship would be returned as soon I
