has announced   the   aariy
construction of this tine.
In an inaugural speech comprehending many developments of 11; bi
class importance, and covering the
wi.ole held of municipal activity,
Ma^or Lee addressed the new council last night The mayor said, in
"Gentlemen,���In assuming the office
of mayor, for the third time, 1 desire
to express my gratitude to the Almighty for HU many favors bestowed
upon our city during the year Just
closed. It was to some extent a
strenuous year, for many questions o(
gravity have been before the councll,
but, personally, I havo the consciousness of never having swerved from
my desire to use my best Judgment ln
the discharge of my duty."
After congratulating the electors on
having elected seven men so eminently fitted for their work as alderihen
for 11)12, he continued:
The City'e Progress.
"The past two years have been
marked with much progressive and Seattle, Jan. 22.���Six were Injured

Mayor   Lee   Announces   that   Braes
Works and Foundry Will Be
That brass worka and foundry com
panies intend putting up 4tnd operating plants ln South Sapperton was
the announcement made by Mayo.-
Lee at last night's council meeting In
referring to a roadway tbat would
have to be put through to their property to allow of them shipping in
their machinery. These are two separate concerns, and ln the former at
least many local men are interested.
The braaa works are to be owned
by the B. C. Braaa Co., Ltd., with Mr.
John Reid aB president, tfhlle Messrs.
Young and Parker are the promoters
of the concern. Tbe company will be
capitalized at $100,000, some $26,003
of which will be sunk in the plant.
The work to be undertaken by the factory will be almost entirely of an
ornamental nature, to begin with at
least, but it is expected, that later
brass fittings will also be made a*.
the works. The exact location of the
plant lies between the C. P. R. track
and the Brunette river, between lots
6 and 7, of block 8, ln South Sapperton. The foundry will probably be
placed on the same property.

The sitting of the j i
today was devotei to an I
Victoria, Jan. 22
explanation by Hon.  Mr. Bowser of
the changes ln tbe revised statutes.
Hon. Mr. Price Ellison brought In
a synopsis ot the repoit of the com-,
mislon on taxation. The report
recommends the abolition of tbe pol:
tax,- wbich, last year, added $313,348
to the treasury. It also recommend*
tire abolition of the personal property
Some important changes are recommended regarding Income tax. It is
recommended that total exemption of
tax on incomes be raised from $1000
to $1500 and that exemption be not
granted to incomes over $11,000 and
under $50,000; also, that an addition
of a surtax of flve ner cent, be mada
on that part of the incsme which ex-
stowed by you gentlemen on not only |
the many obscure details of your various departments, but on tbe matters
of an administrative and constructive
policy ot development. The honorarium���for it cannot be considered as '
a money consideration for time ex-
pended���given to the aldermen Is far
too small, and should, I consider, be
increased this year to $400 per annum '
as authorized by tire Municipal |
Clauses act. We shall undoubtedly
have before us this year some of the
' greatest problems that the city lias
ever been called upon to discuss, the
importance of which Cannot be overestimated. The solution of these propositions will determine the coudl-
ln our ally, whether   it will be
a*i*,*-*�� m sisll ��tl]r
of comparative obscurity and- mediocre development.
The Harbor Scheme.
"Vou have alrecdy had placed before you a comprehensive harbor
scheme, and although the details are
not >et completed we have sufficient
basid to warrant our earnest thought
and statesmanlike consideration. This
project will probably have to be dealt
with by a harbor commission, but It
devolves upon this councll to be energetic In our endeavors to get it under
way. Our representative In Ottawa,
Mr. Taylor, ls ~ paving the way to
bring the subject officially before tbe
federal government, and from its evident value to the commercial and industrial Interests of. the entire
Dominion we feel confident It wlll receive very favorable consideration.
Transcontinental railways are forging their way west, and through this
district to the seaboard. It ia proposed, I understand, to present for
your consideration in the near future
propositions of some magnitude dealing with these matters, and these, ta
ken in conjunction with the Harbor
Scheme, will easily place New Weat
minster in-a very commanding position on the Pacific coast.
You will presently have placed before you plans for permanent Improvement on the streets of that section of
the city bounded by Agnes street on
the south, Sixth avenue on the north,
First street on the east, and Sixth
stieet on the west. When the plans
of this section are complete lt ls honed tire section west of Sixth street
will be dealt with in a similar manner. Our main thoroughfares into the
city from adjoining municipalities
should receive early consideration at
the hands of the council so that they
may bo In passable condition before
the fall rains set la. Plans for the
Sapt rton sewer system are almost
comileted, and the work should be
well under way thla year. The only
other section of the city tbat will not
have a sewer system will be that portion between Sixteenth and Twentieth streets in the far west end. This
will come before you In due season
Gas and Water.
Plans, specifications and other communications and detailed information
will be place 1 before you in connection with a municipal gas plant. A
proposition for the purchase of a wa"
ter power is ready for your consideration and Investigation. I need scar
��� oely point out to you the importance
ot acquiring a suitable power, and we
believe we have one in sight, near
enough to be of the greatest value tt
sary If we are to take advantage of
essary lf we are to take advantage of
thii opportunity.

The Agnes Street Ratepayers' association is 'still wording uuietly for the
widening of that street, and th" laying of tlte B. C. E. It. tra. ks along it.
A request was presented to the city
council laat night, that tbe city engineer be instructed to draw up plans
and profiles for Its widening from
Tenth to Dufferin, and the executive
committee express their confidence
that tbey will meet with but little
opposition to their schemes of making tbls tbe aecoribd business street in
Naw Westminster. Nearly everything,
of course, defends on the B. C. E. R.
company, nnd whether they wlll consent to lay their tracks along the
street or not No answer has been
received up to date, but hopes of a
favorable reply in a few weeks' time
are high.
It is argued by the ratepayers that
business will creep up Tenth and
Sixth streets In particular and wlll
than join hands arain along Agnes.
Real estate men report that they are
dally assailed by applications for
husiness property by men who want
to start up In business, but an prevented from doing so by the fart that
there are no business lots available.
Taking all these things into consideration, and believing that much
greater difficulty would be experienced In widening Carnarvon street than
Agnes street the residents and owners along the street mean to carrv
their work through to a finish. If
they possibly can do s"<.
Jamas Cunningham Believed to Hsvs
Plans for Two Business Blocks
on Eighth Street.
Mr. James Cunningham is reported
to have several plana under way for
Improving his property. It Is under
stood that he Is st piesent at wo k
on plsns for a three story, building to
stand on his property next to the Salvation Army citadel on Eighth atreet
The approximate cost of this block is
figured at $13,000, but any e act forecast is impossible, as Mr. Salt, tbe
architect, has not as yet quite completed the plans.
It is alto understood that Qeorge
Cunningham,   who   owns   tbe   black-
Patricia, their daughter, today avoided a huge crowd waiting to welcome
tiiem at tbe Grand Central station.
Welcomed by tt bitelaw Keid, American ambassador to Britain, tho
royal party were immediately trusted
into private automobiles, and, guard
ed by a cordon of secret service men
and police, they were rushed to tbe
Held mansion for breakfast.
When the Canadian express pulleJ
into the Grand Central station the
crowd was not aware of Its arrival, hs
lt was expected that the duke's party
would travel ln a special train.
The railroad company took extraordinary precautions against possible
mishap, and special trackwalkers wero
assigned to duty to see that the route
Into the metropolis was entirely safe.
Ambassador Reid arranged the arrival of the royal party in order that
the duke's party might evade tbe mob
that awaited them at the station. He
communicated with the railroad officials and the private cara Cornwall
and York were detached from the express outside the station and coupled
on to the rear of the Rutland express.
When the train pulled Into tne station Ambassador Reid and Mrs. Reid
were standing on the platform await-
in* their arrival.
Princess Patricia alighted first. The
party was quickly escorted t�� four
new automobiles of British make and
imported expressly for the occasion.

to which he clung, despite all efforts

throttle all our thought on such suo-
The primary blunder,   of course, i*
that comic one to which Mr. Frazer
and  Mr. Clodd  have  lent,   or rather
pawned, their authority.   I mean the
absurd notion that in matters of the
imagination  men   have  any   need   to
copy  from each other.      Poems and
poetic tales tend to be a little allk��,
not   because   Hebrews   were    really
Chaldeans,    nor    because    Christians
were really Pagans, but because meu
are really men.    Because there is. In
spite   ot   all   the trend   of   modern
thought, such a thing as man and th.;
brotherhood of men.   Anyone who has
really looked at the moon might have
have called the moon a virgin and a
huntress,  without ever  haying hearl
of Diana.   Anyone who has ever looked at the sun might call it the god of
oracles and of healing, of poetry and
of plague, without ever having heard
of Apollo.    A man   in love, walklns?

unicorn is a very difficult anlm-i to
catch; and certainly it bas not been
caught yet. If nobody has yet said
that in this case "unicorn" meant
rhinoceros, somebody will soon���but
it shall not be I.
But though it is probably true that
many of these mediaeval monsters
were of pagan origin, this truth, which
ls always repeated, ls far less startling than another truth that ls always
ignored. ,
The monster of the pagan fables
ways, so far as I can see. an embl-m
of evil. That is to say, he was really
a monster; he was abnormal; or as
Kingsley put it in those flne and highly heathen hexameters:
Twi-formed,    strange,
who  o#ey    pot
Sometimes the monster, once killed,
could be used to kill other monster*:
as Perseus used the Gorgon to kill the
dragon of the sea. But this ts a mere
accident of material. I can Imagine,
in tbe same way, that if I could put
the head of a Folk Lore Professor on
the end of' a stick, it might be splendid as a heavy wooden club for bashing heads of other and less hardened
Folk Lore Professors. Or again, tbe
Hydra, who grew two heads for e\ery
one that was cut off, might have been
praised as an emblem of branching
evolution and the advantage of an In
creasing population. But, as a fact,
the Hydra was not praised. He was
killed, amid general relief. The Mino
taur might have been admired by
moderns as the meeting place of meo
and animals; the Chimaera might
have been admired by moderns as an
Instance of the principle that three
heads are better than one. I say th?
Hydra and Chimaera might have been
admired by moderns. But they were
not admired by ancients. Amen* the
pagans the grotesque fabulous aninnl
was thought of only as something vou
ought to kill. Sometimes it killed you
like tbe Sphinx; but even when <t had
done that, you did not really love it.
Now the case of the reappearance
of such  unearthly animals after  Europe became Christendom is the thin."
I have never seen properly describ'd
In one of tbe oldest of the legen's of
St. George and the Dragon, St. George
did not kill the dragon, but led lt cap
the and sprinkled it with holy water.
Something; of the same sort happened
to that whole department of tbe hu
man mind which creates violent  and
unnatural Images.   Take   the Griffin,
for example.    In our time the Griffin,
like  most other   mediaeval   symbols,
has been made a mean   and   farclcil

Few American housekeepers make
tbe same practice as their foreign sisters of doing their own marketing, yet
failing this, they should make It a
rule to obtain price lists from tbe
butcher, baker, laundress and grocer
and compare these from time to time
with the price lists of other Brm* and
to insist on a daily price list being
seut by tbe fisbman and grocer, while
the various books should be made up
and paid weekly, for ln tbis way lt ls

very useful for apportioning the money
required for the various tradesmen's
books: Butcher, one-third of tbe total
allowance; grocer, onu-llftb; d%)ry. one-

one-fourteenth; tlsbman, one-fourteenth. The grocer's book is, aa u

as a'Wln&Mr feature of our healthy
and successful, advancement. The increased production will sustain the
burden and lift ln due time. But although savings make a good record,
they nhorild Under existing conditions
Snake a much better, and we should
furnish a lg^gp^hj^re of the capital required in ��ifr own minor enterprises.
A still more Important matter is the
.necessity of avoiding large foreign Investments of non-productive speculations whlcii'tImpo8e onerous future
burdens.' For example, if a large volume of British capital ls paid for Canadian land and spent by tbe sellers
on foreign wines and other luxuries,
the resultant volume of imports
means an onerous future burden
through a speculation that ls nonproductive. It puts our productive Industries under tribute for years.
Tbere Is A ptechlevous economic delusion abroad to the effect that the
man who spends his income on luxuries  gives   employment,  while   the
man who saves does not.    The truth
ls that the man who saves gives more
-employment that the man who spends.
Every dollar diverted from the gratification of Immediate wants   to   the
savings bank means the diverting of
a proportionate amount of labor from
occupation's whteh   satisfy immediate
wants to those which produce permanent capital.   The fact that the sav-
the Jaws lias been defended upon economic grounds and also upon political
grounds. The first ls the older argument Profound patriots ot the orthodox Russian type long ago discovered
that tho simple, untutored Russian
peasant must not be left unprotected
against the Jews with, their superior
mental endowment, energy and
thrift Confronted with the problem
of two races on a different cultural
level, the typical Russian solution waa
not to raise the lower race, bnt to.
crush down tba superior one. On that
principle ls-4based the entire mass ot
restrictive'legislation by which tho
Jews have been pent up within a single cornerdTthe empire, hampered la
the pursuit pf trade and the professions, and reduced to a minute percentage hen the universities, ��� The
stupid iniquity of such a pollcy need
not be expatiated upon here. It ls
sufficient to point out that the vaat
number of Russian Jews live under
conditions ot abject poverty closely
approximating that of the Russian
peasant Given freedom of opportunity, tha Jewish workman would probable carry Into every'city of the empire that new Industrialism which
Russia's rulers are so set upon developing. This ls aside from the general
argument that the Russian government would flnd lt difficult to look
abroad and point ont a nation which
has fallen into economic ruin through
granting opportunity to its Jewish citizens.
After treating the Jew for several
generations as an economic peril, the
Russian Government disoovered that
he was a political peril.   There ts no
denying that the Jews have played an
important   rart   in   the   progressive
movement   ln   Russia.     Undoubtedly
they were prominent during the revolutionary  upheaval of half   a doz��n
years ago.   But the Jews, in throwing
themselves  ardently  Into  the liberation movement, did only what every
other oppressed nationality within the
Russian Empire did.    The Armenians
in the Caucasus, the Lettish ek^pnt
In the Baltic provinces, the Poles, the
people of Finland, joined ln the uprising  which obtained  for   Russia   the
flicker of liberty   and   constitutional
government she now possesses.   Thu3

which in proportion to the total number  of  inhabitants   has   probably  as
large a Jewish popula'. loa as Russia
has never found the Jews a peril to
peace,  order   and   prosperity.      The
great question at stake le whether the
Russian  Government  really hopes tj
go on for ever sweeping back the tide
of modern  enlightenment.     Bourbon-
ism is slow to learn, else Russia would
have learned before this the hopelessness of her task. She would have rec
ognized the significance of the great
change that has come over the Russian peasant himself.    I�� that simple

Writer  in  New  York   Evening   Post
Discusses    Problem.
��� We have pointed out cn several occasions how the Russian Government,
in arguing that the recognition of foreign iiassports in the hands of Jewish
travelers is an internal question that
conce. ns itself alone, has given away
its own case. Common sense demands: How can a subject so plainly
���of international Import as the right o:
passing from one country to another
be made a matter of internal policy
only? If the State Department cannot take up with the Russian Foreign Ofiice the refusal to honor nn
American passport, what is there tha;
international diplomacy Is at liberty
to discuss? To this Russia's reply
has been that her own Jewish problem ls such a peculiarly difficult one
that any dealings affecting people o'
the Jewish faith must become a mat
ter to her of seriou�� domestic concern.
The futility of such an argument as ?
rejoinder to the just c'aims of anotV������
-nation dees not need to be r>oiT>��e1
out. It onlv remains to bo shown how
���senseless is the policy of Jewish exclusion wben viewe.l from the stand-
j'oint of Rt.:- iia'9 <".,vn be<=t Itiferrs's.
Russia's repressive   p~licy   towards
bear down upon that as tbe sole ca\we
and Instrument of danger to the autoo
The hallmark of Russia's repressive
policies towards other nationalities as
well as the Jews is stupidity snd fu
tility. Despotism has only one excuse
���success. But, as a matter of fact,
the Russian autocratic system Is a
creaky, blundering machine. As ap
plied to the question in hand, for in
stance, what is there the Russian Gov
ernment has to fear from the pres
ence of foreign Jews within its boundaries? Would the American passport be utilized by Jewish revolutionists for their own purposes ? Revolutionist agitators and emissaries have
never found much difficulty in entering the country. It is precisely against
travelers engaged ln legitimate business that the passport system most
operates. American citizens of the
Jewish faith whose interests demanded their presence in Russia have
been compelled to secure a "vise" for
their passoprts under false pretences,
or have entered on other people's
passports, or have made use of that
omnipotent argument in Russian officialdom���bribery. It ls only against
those who would not condescend to
such subterfuges that the rule of discrimination has operated. It is quite
like the Russia of fifty years ago,
when Alexander Herzen waB compelled to publish his liberal journal, The
Bell, in Paris or London, and The Bell
was read everywhere in Russia and
found Its way unfailingly to the
czar's table.
So It is quite ln accordance with the
good old Russian tradition that, instead of holding the door open to thc
traveler from abroad, and recoj.nI/.ins
in the forelgneer's passport a guarantee of good behavior as well as a card
of admission, the czar's government
prefers to let the undesirable eleven;
enter by the usual subterranean
means, antl excludes those whose mission is unobjectionable and above-
hoard. Revolutionary literature from
abroad finds no difficulty in ent;ritiK
the country, but a foreign newspaper
man, prepared to study the Russian
question fairly, is excluded, lf he hap
pens to be of the proscribed faith.
This is not only intolerable, il is
ridiculous. It is quite ln line with tha
attitude of the conservative Russian
newspapers on the passport question.
Tp hear them talk one would imagine
that the very life of the empire depended upon the non-admission of
Jews, and that ages must pass befor
such a thing Is conceivable. Ang. ve'
it is certain that in the course of e
very few years there will not on'v be
a change in Russ'a's pisr.no-1 resrul.i-
tlons, but a Chan re in ber entire Jewish policy. Jewish emnncipa'ion bas

< Dear Elsa���It's a mighty good thing
tbat most of us don't see ourselves as
others see ns wben we are walking.
Tbla uncomfortable fact wu brought
very persistently to my attention yes-

women in tbeir good looking fall suits
1 suddenly became aware of tbe very
indifferent slmost slouchy, gait of
these passersby.   There was tbe girl

These artificial posies range In price
according to their quality, but coarse
ones are utterly out of tbe question.
Elsa, don't you find It convenient every now and tben to know some amusing and easy game with which to entertain a few people wben tbey bap-

people, 1 mean, wbo don't play bridge

and carefully rounded, chesting herself with the delusion tbst tbls sttt-
tude conduced to rapid walking.
Some turned I heir toes In like pigeons, snd an equal number preferred
to walk like ducks. Now, dear, both
birds are charming tn tbeir way, but
scarcely models of graceful deportment.
I bare come to the conclusion that
tbe carriage of one'a bead Is responsible for most of the bad walking one
sees. Instesd of being beld gracefully
erect It Is either poked forward or
thrown back In sucb an exaggerated
attitude tbat It forces the waist forward

ou see me I will be as graceful as a

Such perfectly stunning blouses are
to be seen In Ibe autumn display of
new tilings! And I am sure tbe question has arisen in your mind, as It bas
Jn mine, what Ih Io be done wltji'the
kimono sleeve? Shall we leave It In
our frocks and blouses or cut It out

that If tbe klmouo sleeve Is In tbe
ablrt walat It wlll date that garment
a year back. Still, the shops are full
ot these models, but tbe Parts edict
hus gone forth that tbey are passe.
And the discouraging part of this
news Is thnt the kimono sleeve In your
jthlrt waist does not make lt a bit
more old fashioned tbat tbe peasant
cut. The round nock, tbe fastening in
the hack nud ths fiat shoulder and
*leeve in one are gradually sinking

Closet room Is always at a premium.
Tbere can never lie enough space to
hold all that a household contains with
perfect ease and comfort. Particularly does the problem of beta need solving.' Closet shelves are generally capable of holding but one of tbe size
that fashion now decrees. Each bat

A very novel and practical idea bas
been evolved to meet tbe needs of tbe
woman who possesses half a dozen hats
and doesn't know wbere to put tbem.
A light stand made of four slender
posts, wltb a shelf or two. containing
prettily decorated hoses, is a gay addition to a room and does not mar its
beauty. Tbe stand contains no sides,
so tbat the box may easily slip ln and
out A better arrangement Is to bave
one side of tbe bos attached on binges,
so tbat one need not go to tbe trouble
of lifting off the Ild each tinia one
wishes to remove tbe hat *
Sometimes these Stands are stained
to match tbe furniture of the room, or
tbey look fresh and pretty wben enameled tn white paint, or, again, tbey
may be draped In chintz to match the
hangings of the boudoir. Tbey may
alao be made of crude materials and

mathematics at Bryn Mawr, where, it
is said, the Nova Scotian was very
popular. This was not his only ex
perience in educational institution-,
across the line. He also lectured at
Johns Hopkins and the Stevens In
stitute of Technology. All the time
Prof. Mackenzie was absent from
Canada improving the culture of our
neighbors, he cast back languishing
glances at his Alma Mater. Nothing
could cause to swerve his set purpose of packing up and returning t>:
Dalhousie for ��ood sometime. Twice
he shook tha dust of the republic
from his soles, and arrived at Dalhousie to fill lectureships for short
periods Now he is back at the head
of affairs. Having studied Dalhousie

Pigs Frorrt All Quarters.
Old prints, old books, old anything,
postcards or paintings, are all fit suh,
fects to torm a, collection. But one
ot the most curious, and, as he ot ���-
covered on inspection, one ot t.ie
most Interesting collection th* newspaper man has known ia a museum*
of pigs.
Not live pigs, mind you, but model
ones.   For some years now the wife o!
mine host of the Green Man Hotel,
at BiP.ckheath, h'as been gathering to
gether a wondrous assortment of model pigs.   There are pigs in pewter,
china, and ivory, earthenware, silver,
and gun-metal; pigs that stand a foot
high and pigs that measure less th��n
half on inch over all; pigs in fancy-
dress, and pigs in clover; aB paper-
knives,  inkstands, or ash-trays.    In
every form and shape there are pigs.
They have come from all over the
work}, and practically every country
is represented. People have stayed
at the hotel, admired the collection
and later lrom some far-away spot
has come a pig.
Shall  Books Be Burned?
Quite recently Lord Rosebery declaimed against the system of hoarding up thousands upon thousands o'
books in public and private libraries.
It is probably a tact that many of
the bulky tomes so carefully guarded
and stored will never be of use again;
