of Kaleidoscopic Changes���
Miners' Minima.^
London, March 22.���The settlement
of the toal miners' striae seemB to
depend on the lesults of a comeranca
between lepiesentauves of the mine
owners ana miners, wnicn has been
summoned by Premier Asquith to con-1
vene on Monday. Meanwhile, th�� I
House of Commons will proceed no
further than the committee stage with
tne govc. iimem's bul wmcu vus introduced in an endeavor to sett.e the
strike.
This was the outcome of a day of
kaleidoscopic changes in the strike-
situation. In the debate In the Commons, the mine.s' lepiesentauves intimated that if the bl.l were amended
in the committee stage to provide for
uaily minima of $1-25 for adults and
50 cents for boys working underground, the miners would not insist qu
the inclusion of their entire icheduic-
aud tlie way would be clear for the
speedy iassage of the measure and
the settlement of the strike. Premier
Asiiulth's refusal to accept this labor
amendment or to put any hxed rates
in the bill, changed tne situation.
William Brace, a representative of the
miners, said the refusal meant that if
the bill were passed as it stood the
miners would not return to work nn-
'.II their schedules of minimum pay
were settled for every coal field in
the kingdom.
Appaiently, an insurmountable obstacle had been encountered. _\'egotis-
tions and conferences followed, anl
announcement wag made later tliat
the House of Lords would meet to-
nieht fo pa?? lhe first re?din? of th?
bill. Later, however, Premier A*-

BURNABY BREAK-UP
IS LIVE QUESTION
auverti8ed oy    nanj    bills   circulated
I late    in tne    ane.noon.    Wnen    Mr.
George Kennedy arrived at 8 o'clock
Jit the Queensuo.ojgh cafe tliere were
only ii\e present, out the numbers of
the   auu.euce   mowiy   augmented     as
time went on and at 8:45 Mr. Kennedy
decided to go through with his speech.
Politically,    ne    said,    the    Liberal
party   was   inner   a   cloud   h.un     lu
Dominion and provincial politics.   But
it was only temporary.   Division was
developing ln the Conservative party
through its   having   had    too    much
power;   the party  had got top heavy
and was beginning to break a ith   its
own weight.   The Conservatives   had
stacked the cards and loaded the dice
against tbo Liberals at the last election. , Now the Liberals only had   19
candidates in the fleld and it would
take  24  to conti ol  the  House.    The
government  had   obtained   such   tremendous   advantages;      to   give   instances:    There had been   no   redistribution ln  Victoria  for len  years;
ine piesent House  only  represented
about balf the population of British
Columbia; In Esquimalt and Nanaimo
the total population behind five members was 26,000: ln Vancouver with lta
population of 110.000 there were also
only     five     members;    Westminster
ought properly to have   two   Liberal
representatives.    There   were lots of
other anomalies like that.   The government had sprung an election   on
them and thus deprived the country
of proper representation.    They  had
cut off thousands of men wbo would
otherwise be voters.
Mr.   Kennedy   proceeded   in     this

thought about the matter until the
question of Vancouver annexing ward

the Liberal platform, which Mr. McBride called "R joke," and Mr. Bowser

therein very carefully before voting

No police interfered with the "Girl
from ttector's" last night. A blue uniform was seen in the bouse, but th?
hand of the law was never raised to
strike. And there was no need. Of
course some people may have put �����
naughty interpretation on the background of the plot last night, but there
was no need to. The play in no way
depended on that for its success. It
was simply written in a light-hearted
mood to raise a laugh and without being brilliant It certainly achieved -ta
end often enough with the packed
house at the theatre.
To be frank it Isn't much of a play.
It's risque reputation Is its big drawing card for human nature is weak.
As it did not live up to Its reputation
no one objected to it. The company
that played laat night was very fair.

The features of yesterday's market
were the demand for eggs and a slight
rise In the price of retail meats.
The . fine weather   that   jnevalled
brought out-town buyers In very fair
numbers but farmers owing to   their
spring ploughing were conspicuous by
their absence.   Prices ruled steady on
the whole und the market ls holding
! up with good  prospects.    Vegetables
j were repiesented  in  every  line, and
I beets,  parsnips,  carrots   an.l  turnips
; were to  be had in abundance.    The
1 supply of potatoes was equal to the
I demand and the demand at $30 a ton
! was just fair.   Early varieties of seed
I potatoes were In fair demand, though
I much of what was   dumped   on   the
1 market as seed potatoes was not merchantable.
Everything in the way of meats was
quickly bought out and in reverse of
last week's market veal was plentiful,
though there was no beef and no local
mutton at all, causing an advance of
two cents both fn beef and mutton.
There was a medium supply of pork,
which weakened a little. Fowls were
very scarce and pure bred breeding
birds would not sell on account of the
prohibitive prices. The fish market
was a little slow and only differed
from last week's by a fall of five
cents in the price of sturgeon. Eggs
were slightly easier and the brisk demand for them���the greatest so far
this year���was no doubt due to th-9
near approach of, Easter and the number of people who are now setting
their hens and setting up Incubators
for hatching. Butter had no difficulty
In maintaining its price.

HONESTY   BEST   POLICY.
Honesty is the best policy. Another
-jvldence of the truth of that statement was given when George F.
��'ord, a newsooy, was presented witu
i gol J watch and chain by Mayor La-
auee, ttie donor of the gift being Mr.
3. Ross Vinebery, a local Jeweler,
rays the Daily Witness.
ihe presentation took place in the
major's chamber at the City Hall. Mr.
vineberg told how he had lost a valuable diamouj pin a few days ago, and
aow that after a diligent  seaicn, iu
which    he  was    assisted    by  young
.oid, he  became convinced that tho
,iin was indeed lost.    The next day
j'ord, who has a stock of papers on
.he    corner mentioned, brought    the
,iin to Mr. Vineberg's store, explaln-
ng that a further search for the mlss-
ng Jewelery had been successful. Mr.
. ineberg   said  he was  so  impressed
with  this  action  that  he  desired to
make publlc acnnowledgment of it, us
well as to give a substantial token of
ns gratitude.
Mayor Lavalle then made the presentation, and said: "I am delighted
.t> have this opportunity as first mag-
strate of Monti eai, of acknowledging
.jiibllcly that honesty is a virtue whicli
s always rewar.led, not only in the
iuture life, but on this earth. Many
writers have written of this virtue,
but I will only cite Cicero, the im-
moital Roman orator, who said tnat
honesty Is woithy of commendation,
ven wnen it bears no usefulness, no
eward nor profit.' "

Building   in    Enjlin-i   for Montreal���
Will B? lowed Out.
Montreal's great new floating dry-
dock is slowly nearing completion a!
Banow-in-Furness, at the ship-building yards of the Vickers, Limited. It
is expected that It will be finished
some time in the early summer, and
will be towed across the Atlantic to
Its destination at Montreal and placed
In the basin which Is being built for
it at Malsonneuve.
"The trip across the Atlantic." stated Mr. Driver, of the Vickers Company, to a representative of, the press
this morning, "will occupy about a
month, as It Is rather slow work towing a huge bulk like this across the
ocean."  . -
T*!s Is not the flrst dock which ha3
been towed to Its destination at a
great distance fiom the point where
it was built. The American Government contracted with Cramps, of
Philadelphia, for a great floating dry-
dock for Manila, Philippine Islands,
after the close of the Spanish-AmeTi-
can war, which was built in Lie United States, and successftilly towed to
its destination in the Far East. Victors, Limited, also built the dock which
was subsequently placed in position at
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Generally the
work of towing is done by two
staunch tugs, which are specially constructed for transatlantic work. So
far as can be Judged by present pro-
eress, the new dry-dock will be ln position by Sept. 1 of this year. "Thst
Is," said iMr. Driver, "if the present
coal Btrike can be settled shortlv, or
otherwise no one can say anything
about when It will be completed."���

"We men fear old age as horribly
as the women Uo," said an elderly
male. "Hence the facial massages to
banish wrinkles that t'o"ow every

ward off baldness that follows every
hair cut. Hence, too, the application
of 'rejuvenators' to hide our gray
locks. We don't call hair dye bv its

cal! it Tejuvenator' or 'tonic' And it's
amazing how many of us use it under
one name or another. It's amazing
how few of us are any longer gray.
"The fact iof our tremendous addiction to hair dyes was brought home
to me the other day by a notice in
the washroom of my club,   lt reads
" 'Members using cosmetics are respectfully requested not to brush
their hair with the wbite-bristio
brushes, wliich tliey permanently discolor. A set of black bristle blushes

of the tlnaiice minister of Canada."
There is uo doubt but that Canadians would welcome closer fade relations with the Weat Indies, lf these
islands can be prevailed upon to establish uniform customs and tarilf
laws, i here is no real reason why
Canada should not negotiate a commercial treaty with the whole of tho
West India Islands. It would he mutually beneficial to both countries and

YOUR JUDGMENT IS GOOD
When you figure investing in real estate, when you .feel that you
have a few dollars wasting tl-.t-ir ir terest earning power, you instinctively
think of your home town as a fle!:! of Investment.. You're right In this.
Let me tell you why.
Westminster today offers more chances to the man with a few do'lars
at his disposal than was ever the case In its history. Property has been
cheaper���property has sold for much less than is the case today. But then
we did not have the prospects or the prosperity that wc enjoy today. It
was something cf a gamble to buy lots In this town a few ' years ago.
There's no gamfcl; about it now. An Investment here is safe, sure, and a
money-maker. Property here i3 gocd and getting better all the time.
Of course some property is bet'.er than otherB. That's why I pick out
the best things I have on my listings and advertise them on this page day
after day.. Of cou'se they're making money for thc man who buys now.
Which one are you gilng to take?    [��|*.'j!   \

1ACR0SSE DISPUTE
WAS COMPROMISED
One   Extra  Game  for  Westminster���
Each Team Still Gets Home
Gate Receipts.
The threatened break between the
two lacrosse clubs of the Pacific coast
lias past and gone. After a somewhat
stormy session held in Vancouver on
Thursday evening, the crux of the
whole trouble, that of gate moneys,
was settled by a compromise. Westminster gets an extra game in the
series and each team sticks to tts own
gates.
Alderman Wells Gray, who headed
the delegation from the Uoyal City,
was pe.'slstent ln advocating tho
abolition of the old system whereby
the home team received the entire
gate receipts and proposed a division
of GO and 40 per cent. Con Jones, tha
Vancouver magnate, was equally persistent ln keeping to the old system
und for a time it looked as if war
would be declared between the two
clubs. An amicable settlement was
reached by Vancouver agreeing to an
extra game in this city, the local officials waiving all claim to a division
of tlie gate money. Tbe agreement
was ratified yesterday when Con Jones
visited thiB city and together with
Alderman Gray signed the necessary
pajiers.
No decision has been reached on
the proposed lacrosse commission for
tiiis province, it being left to President
Harry Cowan and Alderman Lynch to
draw up some kinl of a plan and report at the next meeting.
The referee question was iilso discussed and wliile uo selection was
made, it was finally decided to appoint one from thc east, the best to
be cot regardless of salary.
President Gray, of the local club,
announced yeslerday that Jimmy Gifford and Sandy Gray had decided to
quit the game. The announcement
comes as a little surprise to lacrosse
'a. fans in this city, and while strong
efforts will be made to induce thera
to change their decision, arrangements
are beinj made to till their places on
the team, should tbey be obdurate.
Nabobs Again Win.
In the House League series laBt
evening on the local alleys, the
Nabobs triumphed over the Wanderers, taking two out of three games.
Unusually low scores were the feature.
Sloan being the lone one to top the
500 mark.   Scores:

Chorus Threaten   to
Forced to Shave.
The opera is threatened with another strike, this time among the male
chorus singers. The trouble threatens
to rise over Massenet's new opera,
"Roma," wherein the chorus' has to
represent the potent, grave and reverend members of the Roman Senate,
who never allowed their beards to
grow. The male chorus Is not resigned to sacrifice the beard in the cause
of art. They plead that an engagement iih chorus singers at the Opera
does not bring in sufficient to live upon, and that they have to supplement
their pay by singing in churches and
taking other Join where they would
not be allowed to appear without
moustaches and beards. "Roma" will
not be played before the end of March
so that there is still time to arrange
matters.
