McBride    Government    Responsible Says Mr. Gifford..
Conservative  Candidate Takes    Campaign Seriously at Queensborough
A pufcllc meeting was held ln the
Qu^eusi.orougn cate in tne Interest
of the Conservative candidate, Mr.
'l nomas Glfitord, at 8 P-m. last night,
the chair being taken by Mr. A.
Gpilce. The rather small audience
Incluoed Beveral ladles. The chairman in opening the proceedings said
he was highly pleased to note that
Queensborough had been selected for
two political meetings/
Mr. Thomas Gifford, cnn.'.idate for
the provincial jjartlament, waa the
speaker of the evening. He said thfit
tnis was the first opportunity he had
bad of speaking before ths coming
election, and he was rather disappointed at the size of the audience���
tome 25 only being present. People,
perhaps, thought that this election
was feoing to be an easy matter, but
he was going to light it as if the issue were doubtful. He was reminded
of the story about the hare and the
tortoise and had no intentions of
sleeping by the wayside. The speaker
was sorry to say that he was a diffident man In the presence of ladles
tnough lie was charme.t to see thai
some, wero present. He proceeded to
show hls hashfulneRs by relating another story about a shy gentleman
who was ordeied by hls spouse to go
and buy her a bloQae and was asked
when he reached lhe store���"What
bust :" to his complete confusion.
The i resent was tho eleventh time
that he had represented Westminster
In parliament, having first been elected to t.ie opposition on which side of
the house he had sat for two yearn
unUl the government was defeated.
lie would J;ist tell them of a few
thlni's that had happened in that
peiioil of lime. Dealing llrst with the
matter of education: ln 1P03 thero
ware 2S.000 pupils in thu schools of
the rrovtnco; this number had
doubled in nine yeara under the Mc-
I'.ride administration and thero were
now 60,000 pupils ln the scho.ds. ln
1903 education ha.l tost this pioflnce
(600,000, hut in 1912 it was co.-tln.;
$8,600,000. The buildings of the new
unlrorslty and also the professor! fo-
lt, he waa i leased to lay, woald be I
the best that could >re ob'.ar.d and
se:cnd to none In the Dominion.
Tuning to public woi Us the
speaker went on to point out to tin*
audience that In 1903 the total cstt I
miles for the rrovlnce amounted toi
|15C{0C0, where is ln 1912 they
Amounted to the respectable total of
$5 000.000. "That," he adfled, 'la go
ing rome for the government."
Looking at finance, the spealtor observed not without Irony that ln 1903
the country was bankrupt and had an
overdraft at the bank of $1,000,000.
The government had had to borrow
Mid had gone to financial houses to
get a loan ot "a $1,000,000 which
they had got after hard work. Compare ail this with the present time,
wlur. British Columbia could pay
every cent the province owes and
stl:l have $1,500,000 ln the bank.
These wore Just simpla facts that ho
was giving them.
"Look at the railway policy of
Richard McBride," he exclaimed. "We
want railways more than wo want
anything else. 'What U the uso of nl\
the ciops and timber and mines
without tLcr.i ?" Wt-H they v.'?nt*d
wa; railways and more of . t'.;:'.*J.

���   The next Speaker wus Mr. Teebles,
who  lead BIT by  remarking  that  he,
like Ms friend, was not given to public, awaking and shared his diffidence,
tte reminded hts hearers of the fact
Vhat Thomas Gifford had been- member  of  parliament  for  eleven   yeara
and did not yet own an automobile.
Mr. Peebles    then    dilated   on   Mr.
Glffoid's predecessors and especially
on  tbe history of Mr. J. ,C. Brown,
who, he alleged, had changed hla politics for tbe sake of a provincial sec-'
retaryshlp.    At that time Mr. George
Kennedy  owned  the  Columbian  and
that paper had supported Mr. Brown,
Canadian Lock and Novelty Company
Intends to Choose Site  in
It seems to be fairly well established that the Canadian Lock & Novelty Co., capitalised at $100,000, wltb
which the Publicity Commissioner has
lately been in communication regarding their making Westminster their
headquarters, will eventualy settle
here. This company has the patent
of the Perclvai lock and any anyone
wishing to see samples of this simple
yet exceedingly elective mechanism,
can do so at the Board of Trade
rooms. For many lar^e buildings
with upwards of a thousand locks this
factory will be the only one for their
business, with the single exceptionn
of that in Hamilton, Ontario. Patents have been fully paid for and the
incorporation of the firm as a company has taken place. Large sums
of money have been paid for machinery, including neicsaries for making
dies,   finishing,  foundry   Work,   nlckle

London, March 19. ��� The coal
mlueis' minimum wage bill, designed
to put an end to the coal strike, passed ita lntst readln,, ln the House of
commons touignt. The bhl is backed
by Pieniier Abviuith, toreign secietaryi
Uiay, Lnanceilor Lloyd ceorge and
Sydney Buxton, president of the
board of trade, it consists of six
clauses and a schedule defining 21
dlsti lets, the country being divided
lor the pui pose of tne bill. As outlined by the prime minister, tne bill
provides a "teasonable minimum)
wage" for the miners and safeguards
for the owners, tnese to be arranged
by district boards. The minimum
v. ill be paid from the data of the
local board. There ls nothing in tbo

Andrew  Bonar Law, leader of    tbi
opposition ln    the    bouse,    said    b<
would   await   the  publication   of   thi
text of the bill before committing the
opposition for or against it.    He said!
his mistrust of the policy of the bill*
however, was strong and the lemedjf

J. Kamsay McDonald, on behalf at
the Labor party, regretted the neces-;-
sity for the bill, but said the Labor
members,would give it all their support if it were amended in regard to
safeguards. "Tha inclusion of a
workmen's schedule will be one of
the amendments," he said. "There
must be security that the district
boards should have no power to reduce the eristing rates of pay."

The need of an effective opposition

Mr. Kennedy fiist dwelt upon tbe-.

run  Into four or five thousand  fath-
I oras.   What light could there  be, then.
j in   those  abysmal   depths   wliich  can
riot he illuminated by the sun's rays?
This  question   puzzled  scientists  for
I many years.   They knew that in vary-
I ing  degrees  of  intensity  fr 1  surface
of the sea became luminous, so much
so,   in .fact,   tln.t   sometimes   on   u
moonless night its effulgenca [fales the
stars, makes thi heavens appear coal
black and   causes   every   wave   that
breaks to appear as a shower of light.
But how far down did this light extend?
With the advent of improved methods of deep sea soundings the question
was partly settled by the capture of
self-luminant fishes. These denizens
of-those vast depths, it was discovered, carry about their ow.i electric
light installation, so to speak, being
fible to render themselves luminous
cr the reverse at will. To what extent
this faculty prevails is unknown, because our knowledge of life in those
awful depths is very limited; but it
may be noted that the majority of
tho.-.b abssal fish have no means of
lighting themselves up, gs it were.
The extraordinary fish that do have
this faculty contain a system of- animal lighting which is, without exng-
seration, more akin to an electrical in-
sta-llation than anything else. One of
the'e oueer little fish was caught not
far from tlie coast of tha United
States in a depth of nearly 18,000
feet, or more than three miles below
the surfaca of the ocean. It has enormous eves in proportion touts size
and on the under side of its body it
;s provided with a number of tiny
lamps, littla globular points arranged
in a sequence of lohgitvdinal lines
from gills to tail, with short spurs
running up the sides. Many specimens of similar lish have b:en secured
and (ill are different, so that it would
be useless to attempt their cl
in full. The grpat question of it
all is, were th^se lowly creatures provided with such lights because the
sun light could not penetrate to their
great depths?   Who can say?
These few specimens out of a great
number will serve to give an idea of
the extraordinary system of self-illumination existing among the inhabitants of the ocean's profound depths.
But this is not all. Comparatively
few of the denizens of the mighty de?p
go about with lights.   By far the great-
British Men of Letters Give Rcplios���
rears and   Laughter Close
A writer in La Revue, M. Maurice
Del��> bia, has been inviting lepresen-
tative humorists In various countries
to define humor, and publishes the result of his inquiry in the November
number of that periodical. Many of
his correspondents declare the tasit
to be an impossible one, while others
bring much learning and ingenuity to
bear on the required definition.
Eight well-known British writers
contribute their ideas on the subject.
Mr. G. B. Shaw, whose own humor, M.
Dekobra says, Is "saturated with ferocious irony," tersely dismisses the
question in these wor.ls: "Humor cannot be defined. It Is a primary substance which makes us laugh. You
might as well try to prove a dogma."
Mr. Jerome It. Jerome writes: "I
do not think humor can be explained.
1 would define it as that which strikes
us by its drollery." This, M. Dekobra remarks, ls evidently "The Idle
Reply of an Idle Fellow."
Mr. Owen Seaman, editor of Punch,
takes the matter much more seriously, and devotes two and a half pages
of print to his conceptions of humor,
pointing out that It depcnls largely o;, (
contrast, Incongruity, and a subjective 1
sense of superiority.   In America one
of its leading characteristics is exag-
geration, while in England lt finds ex-j
pression   in  implications   isous-enten-
dus)    equivalent     to     the     reserve :
strength of an athlete.     It embraces
iiony in the largest sense, and the art |
of delicate    suggestion.      One of Its
most popular forms of expression  la
the grotesque, as exemplified by Hobert Burns:
And some are fu' o' love divine,
And Fome are fu' o' brandy.
!���a sudden descent from the sublime
to the ridiculous,
The pun, Mr. Seaman reminds us, U
I now out of fashion   in   England, but
j humorously pedantic effoi ts are often
obtained by the employment of liter-
I ally translated French words or words
of Greek and Latin origin. An En'jiisli-
I man is even more afraid   of ridicule
seription I t,lan a Frenchman;  yet he will turn
the laugh against himself   qr against
his national institutions,  thus anticipating the ridicule be dreads.   In British literature laughter and tears are
more   closely allied than in that   of
other countries.
Mr. Anstey suggests this 'efinition:
"A delicious conception of the incongruous," hut he admits it is not cim-
plete. The particular humor appreciated by different races is, he thinks,
largely a matter of climate.
Mr. Zangwill says:    "Humor is the

Se?.   Serpents.
Sea serpents date back to the days
of Aristotle, who wrote: "The ser-
nents of libya ar5 of enormous size.
Navigators along the coast report having seen a great quantity of hones
of oxen, which tliey believe without
doubt to have been devoured hy the
serpents. These serpents pursued them
(the seamen) when they left the shore
and upset one of their triremes."
Olaus Magnus wrote in the middle
ages of a sea serpent 200 feet long
mid 20 feet thick wliich haunted rocks
and caves near the Beacoast, the old
writer adding, "And he puts up his
l'.ead on high like a pillar and catch-
etli awav men, and he devours them
to laugh at our heroes of romance, in-1
stead of laughing with them. A good ;

Mr. R.   G. Carton,   the   playwright,
considers that humor is to our existence what   oxygen ls to the   air we
breathe.    It  is  the  best  disinfectant
that science has   not   discovered.    A
sense of humor is the   real  philosopher's stone, turning to gold all the lit*

Mr. W. L. Courtney, like Mr, Seaman, points out the close affinity between laughter and tears. He sums
up humor as the minute observation
of Tife with its alternations of light
and shade, and the power to drive
away melancholy by an Irony now
grave, now gay, which shows the Insignificant brevity of everything that
moves the human heart.

Cows   Wonder.
The packers show rrom their books
that during the years 1907, 1907, 1909
and 1910 their net profit from fresh
meat was only one-eighth of 1 per cent
a pound.
In 1907 the retail price of fresh
meat was from 11.8 to 13.3 per cent
higher than ln/19t0, while tlie puce
of cattle decline! in thnt period from
$92.4G to $81.73. And while dressed
beef was half a cent a pound dearer in
1910 than ln 1909, the price of beeves
was lower, declining from $9 per 100
pounds tn WW to 17.55 In 1910.
Any self-respecting cow has the
right to wonder who got the extra difference between her price on the hoof
an! her price dressed.���New York

'Mission tram-line's plans' until tbey

The city council was notified last
night by an official" of the company
that Westminster would be included
in the railway's scheme, and that
Air. McNeill would* write to Mayor
Ijee to this effect as soon as the latter had returned from Ottawa. Nature has destined this city to be the
��Ustributlng point for the Fraser Valley and a grievous mistake would be
made if any efforts were spared to
induce or even compel any tram-line
scheme on the banks of this river to
make Westminster a point of call.
Once the channel of the river to tho
sea is perfected and proper harbor
facilities provided there will no longer be any necessity to make special
efforts to induce railway or other industries to come here. Such enterprises will recognize the virtues of
the city at once. They will iid longer
have "to be shown."

the generic name of "club" are neceB-

filling some definite purpose, and associating some one class of men
whose interests lie in a particular direction, whose origin and growth offer a fascinating field for researcn.
Prominent among t:.e Institutions of
this kind is the Canada Club. Dating
from the second half of the eighteenth
century, it .can certainly claim to be
one of the oldest clubs in London,
buch clubs as White's (1730), Boodle's
(17610, Brooke's (17(14), and Arthur's
(17(>5) are as old, but at the time of

This was a bad state of affairs for
the country. The renewed signs of
lite siiown by the party at this flection are proof of a healthier condition
in the body politic. No party however excellent should remain in
jpower withou, some sort of effective
-criticism both in and out of the

that reason Conservatives and Liberals alike should welcome the present fight and even the most loyal follower of McBride may be permitted
to hope that a somewhat stronger op-

appears to have been mislaid, but it
is just possible that they may have
been entrusted to the care of some
olty bank, and forgotten for the time
being. Tho minute bonks, tavern bills,
ic^istcrs of attendances, and other records dating back to 1K15, or thereabouts, are uow in the vaults of the
Cank of Montreal.
In the absence of the earlier records, it is impossible to be -cei tain of
the origin of the club, but the tradi- i
tlon is that the original members were
a coteiie of lumber merchants and fur
traders engaged in the Nortli >vest,
who used to gather periodically in a
convivial way in the City of London.
Thus the Canada Club's beginnings
date from a time when Canada and
tho Hudson's Bay Company wero syn-
subscribers' stations were added.
Equipment was changed at 2fil3 stations and 2203 stations were removed;
3861 stations were removed from one
location to another; 104 private
branch exchanges were installed and
12 removed. The Garry exchange was
cut into service on the 8th of January,
1911, with accommodation for 5006
lines, the St. John's exchange on November 5th with accommodation for
2100 lines, making a total of five exchanges in the city of Winnipeg with
an ultimate capacity of 41,000 lines.
The new stores building was completed on Henry avenue. Underground
installed In which was placed about
30 miles of conduit; and 47 manholes
were built.
Pole leads in the city were increased by 1400 poles. The cable was Increased    by  33,266    feet,  or  21.03%
miles of single wire.
The system now serves   from   the

Westminster captured the championship and qualified for the trip to
Quebec in quest of the Stanley cup.
Seven goals to five was the total
count last night. Vancouver held the
five end.
At tne close of the game when
they had cinched the championship
and vindicated their promise mado
early this season the members of the
Westminster team were wildly hilarious, yelling, whooping and cutting up
capers to show their delight. Lehman,
the starriest goaltender who ever
flagged a flying puck, was as happy
as a kid with his flrst pair of pants.
I Said Ernie Johnson to P. W. Luce,
secretary of the Westminster club:
*'I told you at that banquet you gave
us in, January that we would bring
the Paterson cup to Westminster.
Well, haven't we done it? And we'll
be there next year to keep lt ln that
place, too." he added. Arid the big
fellow meant every word of it. Captain Gardner was perhaps the proudest mau of the team, although Harry
Hyhnd was as full of satisfaction as
his little self could contain.
It certainly was a happy family
that whooped 'er up and proclaimed
for all the world to hear "We're the

It is a game in which speed is one
of the greatest assets und it is by
this speed that the public interest is
aroused. A recent statement by a
newspaperman of British Columbia,
where the game has recently taken a
great hold, was: "Lacrosse is fatt.
but it is a funeral procession compared with hookey."
In the Province of Quebec hockey is
the popular winter sport. Tliere the
greatest interest seems to he'iti the
professional side. The reverse is the
case in Ontario, where the game has
ir.ade its most advance^ strides. Amateur hockey reigns supreme in our
own province and the sport is conducted by one oi Canada's greatest

Germ warfare is only a part of the
new system of warfare t at tin British admiralty is now considering. An-
jther idea of the inventor is a shell
filled with a material that will literally tet tlie atmosphere .on tire.

Perhaps the most horrible part of
the new invention is "Blindite." As
its name implies, it is a ghastly substance, which blinds anyone within

A shell filled with "Blindite" would
blind everyone within 100 yards' radius. Such a shell, exploding over at

Where Latin Is Still Spoken.
In the central part of the Balkans,
far up in the mountains between Bulgaria, Servia and Turkey, there is a
community of mountaineers amon*
whom strangers seldom go. During
the ascendancy of the Roman empirs
s Roman colony was founded here
and then forgotten on account of its
remoteness. For the reason that the
descendants of those ancient colonists have never mixed with the people Bbout them they retain their
original characteristics, even to the
langifage. In several villages the
Latin that the peasants speak is so
plain that students ol classic authora
can understand them.

Oil Bath For Baby.
This story begins like n fairy tale. It

For tbo young mother who does nol

tion Is. What food will be best fot
The selection of food depends largely upon the Infant's physical condition. What will agree perfectly wUh
a normal child wlll act as poison i<��
the baby with weak digestive organs.
Always consult your physician regarding the proper food for baby and
do uot allow yourself to be guided by
the advice of neighbors and sympathetic friends.

Again, there was a time when an

Australian wouldn't eat rabbits���hut

All These Goods Can Be
Purchased At
of Rur;:i ,Tn Terror
Prophecy of Fajal 1912.
Over the royal household of the
(.real White Czar of all the Russia*
dark terror cast* its threatening shadow aa the result of a dread prophecy
oejlvered to Czar Nicholas seven years
age  hy Gregory Rasputin,-a reputed
!\!'l;u",a" and "My8tlc."' who read in
the horoscope of his credulous master
this -fateful message: '���Beware the
year 1912.   After that all is dark."
Rasputin, whose antecedents are
obscure and whose origin was most
humble, is installed in private apartments in the Winter Palace, where
he spends his time in consulting oracles, the stars, summoning spirit*
and gazing into crystals, pretending
to seek to learn what this year of
fate holds fnr his Imperial Majesty.
So gr;'at is Rasputin's influence that
the Czar consults him whenever he is
in doubt even on the highest questions
of state and the Douma has made his
control an affair of national importance. He receives an ample salary
ar.d costly gifts when the Czar is
pleased with his necromancy.
This mystic is the last of a succession of more or less holy men who
h ve played on the Czar's weakness
and dread of the occult. In his youth
Nicholas was fonder of gazing into
passionate eyes than of attempting to
peer through the veil of the Jutur-.
Hut when he ascended the throne he
fought the help of a church nf which
he became the titular head and ol
certain  of  its  theatric  exponents.
First oamg Father John, the miracle
working priest of Cronsta .:, and Nich-
olas began his reign under the inllu-
enco of this village priest. Father
John was regarded abroad as an ig.
ncrant charlatan and a fanatic, but
the Russian faithful looked upon him
as a saint. Next 1'obredonostzeth. the
famous procurt'.r-geperal ol the Holy
Synod, twisted the Czar around hi*
linger and diverted him from the lib-
eralism he had imbibed in his,youth.
Philippe Sur.dard, son of a shepherd
and born in the French Alps, succeeded; then* others divinely inspired
���Ii;sh<p Henc-genes, Heliodorus, Abbot ot Isar'.tsyp, and the rest of them.
To-day ���"Hasputin is rajgnlng over
him who reigns over Russia. Small
wonder that the Duuma is anxious,
nervous and the people unea-y, since
the fate of Russia may han^ on the
worl of this my.tx steeped in supei-
stitious lore.

Pensions For Horses.
Th^> highly original will of an eccentric bachelor. Emil vo-i Bizony, is
reported from Vienna, "h? deceased,
the brother of a well k '.Ama Hungarian deputy, was sixty-five years
old, detested women and lived on a
war footing with all his relatives.
In his will he bequeathed all his real
and personal estat', vorth about
$100,000. to his twelve draft horses.
As executors of the will he named
the Society For the Protection cf
Animals at Budapest, stimulating that
th.' interest on his proper y should he
idevoted to the care of th~se twelve
animals and that upon (' e death of
one of them another aged horae was
to t>" taken In and caret toT. so thnt
the nufnber of twelve might always
be maintained. The relatives are
India Cotton Weaving.
The dty of Colicut, on the Malaba
coast, which, with Snrat, was an ancient cotton mait, gave Ita name to
the variety of fabric known as "calico." Some qualities of this wore so
line. It Is said,'that one could hardly
feel them In the hand, and" the thread
when spun, waa scircelj discernible.
Dacca, once a most Important city lying northeast or .Calcutta, sent out
from Its looms in the early centuries
those wonderful tissues of flne muslins made Trom a staple too short to
be woven by any machinery.
Even after the advent of the British in India there is recorded an ln-
i lance of a piece of muBlIn 20 yards
long and one and a quarter yards wide
weighing only 14 ounces. With the
rudest Implements the Hindoo women
spun those almost Impalpable threads
and wove fabrics that for fineness of
quality have never been successfully
imitated elsewhere. With the decay
of the native Hindoo court3���the chief
customers���the demand , ceased and
the manufacture waB for the most part
stopped. Dacca today is little more
than a ruin, but the art survives to a
certain extent, states Harper's weekly.
Weaving In India divides Itself Into
two branches���hand loom and power-
loom weaving. The proportion of
handloom-made cloth to power loom-
made cloth Is fully two to one.
The native hand loom Is a most
primitive affair. It is now the same
as It was three centuries ago. The
old fly shuttle looms are ln successful
use In certain localities, but these are
not favored by the natives.
The manufacture of cotton ln India
dales back to the earliest times, tn
the Sanskrit record mention Is made
of It 8900 years ago.

"My dear old father came to visit
me last week," says a friend whose
nanis we omit. "He's one great oil
scout, my clad, but of course he's a
villager, and he can't see this easy-
come-easy-go method of getting rid of
money. He had to be there with a
little advice.   Says he:
" 'Son, I hear you've been losing
a U't of money on fast horses.' '
"'Father," I came back, 'that just
shows how news will get twisted by
the time it arrives at the old town.
It is true that I have risked some
coin at tlie track, but it wasn't un

Fortune Spent en Buttons.
Forty thousand pountls wa* raid by
Louis XIV. for one set of buttons for
a waistcoat. This monarch had a
positive passion for buttons, and in
the yesr 1635 he spent a very largo
amount on this hobby. Among tbe
items of his expenditure two are
worthy of not*���August. 1635, two diamond buttons, 67,866 francs; seventy-
five diamond button, 536,703 francs.
It is estimated that during his lifetime he spent $5,000,000 on buttons
alone, and that at a time when ttie
