The Liberal press Is unanimous In
urging Great Britain to preserve
neutrality. The majority of the Conservatives demand the same pollcy.
The Times, declaring that none of the
European peoples want war, says.
"Yet that Is whither the nations are
blindly drifting."
It asks, "Who, then, makes war V
and replies:
"The answer is to be found in the
chancellories of Europe, among; the
men who too long have played with
human lives as pawns In a game of
cIipss. and who have become so enmeshed fn formulas and the Jargon
of diplomacy that they have cease<t
to be conscious of the poignant realities with which they trifle."
A Clarion Voice.
The Pall Mall Gazette almost clone
speaks in a warlike voice, lt a?
"England ought to net firmly with
France und Russia in refusing slmplv
to be swept aside. If the conference
desired by the lirit'sh government Ip
refused, we ought to face the alterna
tive and stand by our frlendB."
The mobilization of the Austrian
nnd Russian armies requires weeks
for what Germany and France can
accomplish In days. Russia's case is
this on account of the great distances
the troops must  travel;   In Ati3lria'x

Pack Your Trunks.
Loudon, Nov. 26.���A Belgrade des
patch says: "After several hours to
day with King Peter, Baron Hartwig
the Russian minister to Servia, said
to leading Servian Journalists:
' "Gentlemen, get ready to pack your
trunks soon. The King shares my
opinion in every respect.'
These words are interpreted to Imply that the situation is extremely

The tlrst big contract for new rolling stock, as mentioned in the press a
few days ago, was let yesterday to the

Preston, Ont. Sixty-five cars, representing an expenditure of $600,000, is

The Peace Makers.
England, France and Germany ar?
playing a peace making role. Their
efforts are directed, apparently toward keeping the powers together In
a compact to refrain from taking up
piecemeal tbe questions which the war
raises and to defer their consideration until the general conference.
The withdrawal of Austrian Avar-
ships at Oonstanttnople to join the
fleet is taken as an unfavorable sign,
and the Imminent Servian occupation
of Durazzo, on tho Adriatic aea, tends
further to bring Austria and Servia
toward the breaking point.

On the other hand the safe arr'val
at Uskup of the Austrian consul
Prochaska. whom it was feared had
heen killed, should lessen the tension,
and the fact that the Austrian ambassador lunched today with the Russian emperor would seem to Indlcat"
that the relations between these, twe

Turkey and Alliance.
London, Nov. 26.���fhe Constantinople oorresrohdent of the Telegraph
sends the following despatch:
"Turkey Is rapidly drifting toward
the triple alliance. A rupture of tb*
armistice negotiations is regarded as
Imminent and certain.
"Both government organs. Ikdam
and Sabah, employ unusual frankness
panies in the business.
These cars are to be delivered, ac
cording to the contract, by the end ot
May, 1913, the flrst shipment being
due on April 1.
Together with this announcement,
made by the B. C. E. R., lt Is stated
that the shops in this city will be kept
coastantly busy on repair work alone,
without mentioning the future possi-
b'llty of the shops being enlarged so
as to KB able to cope with the work

The cars ordered yesterday will be

similar to' those recently manufactured
by the Brill company, of. St. Louis,

that there is shipping worth nearly a

Attention Paid to Present Waterfront
Industries���Tenders Cloae on
Monday Next.
According to the specifications pre
pared by Harhor Engineer Mr. A. O.
Powell the work of extending the
water line on Front street out for a
distance ot some 119 feet from the
present line will divided into three
sections, namely A. B. and C. .
The Tlrst section comprises a stretch
of about 700 feet loug, commencing ai |
the end of the Royal City mills sit?
and ending at the foot of Tenth
street. The B section commences at
Tenth street aud runs to a point about
250 feet from Fourth etreet. This
stretch is ahout 3500 feet long. The
last section starts where the second
breaks off and ends just west of
Konrtli streeL
The divisions, it is stated, are for
convenience in estimating only and
will liave no other significance whatsoever. The project is described by the
engineer as follows: "The work will
consist in extending the line of the
present waterfront out into the river
to a new harbor line. The extension
will be made by a solid fill of earth, j
sand or gravel, having an outer slope
of one on one and one half. The slope j
will be protected by the revetment
rock, approximately two feet and six
Inches thick and where necessary by
rock toe. Over the slope will be- a

'" "'    '"-'"-"     ���"'- ' -' He explained that section 88 of tha
Bank Act authorizes a bank to lend!
money to purchasers, shippers and
dealers in products on the security
of products, but that the banks are
not authorized to lend money to th<*
farmer on his threshed grain, no matter how great the quantity or bo-tr
safely it is stored.
The proposed amendment provides*
that money may be loaned to farmery
on the security of their grain and the-
general products of the farm.
Dr. Schaffner: "What about livestock ?"
Mr. Aikens: "I. am ln favor of the
loaning of the money on live stock,
but the urgency ls not so great, nor
the reasons so apparent."
Reasons for Measure.

London, Nov. 26.���One of the most
Interesting bye-elections    In    London
ended today in the gaining of a seat
by the Conservatives    in    Bow    and
Bromley division of the Tower Ham
lets.   George   Lansbury,   tbe   Labor
member, bad resigned because he was
diBsatislled witb tbe Liberal policy c.
tbe woman's suffrage question amcn0
other thiugs, and sought   a   straigh
flght iu which he was assisted by tin
suffragettes,  who  worked very hard
for him.
The Liberal party did not put up a
candidate and reconfteended thei.
party not to vote. The result of to
day's vote was: Blair, Conservative.
4042; Lansbury, Suffragist, 3291; a
majority of 751.
lt is said, however, that the result
cannot be regarded as a reliable
criterion of the views of tbe con
stituency regarding votes for women
owing to the many other issues which
were Introduced into the campaign.
At the last election the figures
were: Lansbury, 4315; L. S. Amoy,
Conservative, 3542. I^ibor majority,

Crew of Ruth Shore   Snatched   from
"Graveyard of Lakes" by Life
Sault Ste. Marie, M'ch., Nov. 26-
Survivors who reached here today told
thrilling stories cf their last moments
on the steamer Ruth Shore and their
rescue by life savers just before the
boat plunged to the bottom of Lake
Superior near Grand Marais Sunday.
"I have sailed the lakes for years
and never before encountered such an
experience as this last one," ��sald
Arthur King, foreman of the steamer,
"It was not long after the boat
struok the heavy seas that ber seams
opened and the water poured through
them just like lt does over a waterfall. There were two men and their
wives tiboard as passengers. The
women were remarkably cool, but they
did not know the real danger. We,
down below, knew we were right In
the graveyard of the lakes.
"The windows were soon smashed
and the atern torn away. As the
boat began to fill tbe Area got low. 1
waa standing ln the water up to my
walat and deck hands passed coal as
fast aa tbey could scrape lt together,
Aa soon aa they would get a pile ol
It together, the water would wash It
away and finally we threw a number
of bage of hard ooal we were carrying
aa freight into the flre boxes.  ,
"All night long we tossed about the
lakes in tbat condition. At noon Sun
day life savers on the shore alt miles
distant aaw our white flag and came
tn the rescue. We all Jumped Into the
Ufa savers' boat and made for the
shore. When we gave up the ahlp the

Perils the Daring Adventurer Braved
to Rob a Golden Eagle's Nest of Iti
Young and the Anxious Hours He
Spent'Dangling In Terror In Mid Air.
An Kugllsbiuau who was spending
bis vncutlon iu the Tyrol learned Unit a
pair of golden eagles were ravaging the
[valleys of poultry aud smull game and
found that they hud their aerie on a
certain mountainside. Being of an adventurous disposition he obtained the
services of several woodcutters uud
started out before dawn determined to
' capture the youug eagle that was believed to be lo the nest
I When the party ascended tbe mountain nnd looked over tbe edge of the
perpendicular cliff tbey cuuld see a
ledge about lot) feet below them. One
of the party remained at the top while
the others lowered themselves tu the
ledge liy menus ot a,rope.
| Here tbey fastened a flfty futboin
hair Inch rope tu the stump of u tree,
lixed u bluck ut wood against tbe edge
of the cliff for the rope to run over, fastened an iron hook in tbe crevice ofthe
rncks and prepared to lower tbe Englishman tu the nerie, wblcb they cuuld
now see far below.
A stout leather belt was fastened
round bis waist, witb an Iron ring In
front, through which the rope passed.
To tbe end uf the rope a strong piece
nt wood was knotted, and tiie Englishman sented bltnselt astride IL
With u ritle on his back, n revolver
In Ills pocket, a big knife In bis belt
nnd u lung pole lu his hands be win

Ihe rope, while two others lay Hat upon
the rocks, rllics In bund, looking over
Ihe edge of tiie cliff. It the old birds
should titlark the Intruder his life
would probably depend upon those two
Tbe descent lusted ten or fifteen minutes. Then the Englishman tumid liim-
Felt opposite the eagles' ledge. He
Jerked the OlOTill line. He was ten
ui twelve feet from the leilpe, lint with
llie hooked end uf his long pole he
was able to draw lilniselt in and presently was gnxltfg cautiously over the
edge of the nest, which, to Ills surprise, contained nut uue eaglet, but
One of them, not without a lively
Struggle, be put Into the canvas hag he
had brought lor the purpose. The
other he finally managed to secure by
running a noose ovei IU feet lie tied
the bug lu tiie olguul cord, arranged
himself upon his wooden scat, took tlie
second bird in his left hand and gave
the signal. TIQ men on tlle ledge
above, contrarj to Instructions, gave a
vigorous pull tbut wrenched the pole
from his bunds nud f>ent him away
from the cliff nt a frightful pace. The
return swing was likely to dash liiui
against the rock with deadly force.
There was but one thing to do, and
lhe Englishman hnd the presence of
mind to do It. He tilted the upper part
of Ills body backward and Ills lees forward and struck lhe rock with Ills feet,
with nu worse lesult than a paral.v7.cd
feeling In Ills Ice* and n twitching sen-
Ballon in llis hack and loins.
.lii!<t then a dark object flushed by
him, lt passed lu such close prut-
Imlty that the innn felt the rush ot air
produced by Its flight At first he supposed It to be a falling sloue, but presently he perceived that Instead of being
drawn upward he was quite stationary.
One bour passed, then two. nnd still
he hung motionless st the end of the
rop He conld of course form no Iden
ef what had happened. The strange
Situation Anally got upon his nerves.
He Imagined thnt be hnd lieen abandoned and must swing there till he lost
his hold and fell to tils death or until
tbe parent engleit sbonld return nnd

At last, when he hnd hung thus he

three hours, he felt a tug upon Ihe
rope nml In flfteen minute* was nt the

Then he found tlmt the falling oh

Curious Effects From Red and Blue on
a Black Background.
If onf a screen ot bluck velvet placed
ut u distance uf ten feet from the spectator large letters nre pasted, some
blue, some red, Ihey will not appear to
be at un equal distance from tlie eye&j
Tu sume persons the red letters will
seem nearer lhan blue letters, while
to other persons the contrary effect
will be manlfesled. I
To produce ibis effect both eyes must
be employed. When une eje Is closed
the letters nre all seen at the same distance. On opening the otlier eye one
set of letters immediately uppenrs to
take a position |u advance of the othera,
Tlie explanation offered for this effect
Is that a sort uf stereoscopic Illusion Is
produced In the eye Itself, depending
upon color. The Image of a blue object
Is shifted by the eye toward one side
und that of a red object toward tbe
other side. J
lf on looking at blue and red letters
on n black background placed ten or'
twelve feet away you see the red letters'
nearer than the blue, screen ofT one-.
balf of tlie pupil of each eye on the
outside and you wlll see the red letters retire behind the blue ones.
If you screen the pupils on the side
toward the nose you will see the red
letters advance apparently still farther
ahead of tbe blue ones. ;
If. on tlie other band, you naturally
see the blue in advance screen the Inner side of ihe pupils of your eyes and
ibe red will come to tbe front.
Beautiful effects are produced wltb
one eye alone when, Instead of letters,
red or blue rings are pasied on a background uf the opposite color. Placing
red rings on blue paper and using tbe
right eye Wltb the Inner side of the pupil covered the appearance Is that of
circular red hillocks resting ou u blue
To produce this effect ln Its highest
degree the paper must be held to the
left und sloping In that direction.
When the ouler side of the pupil ts
erreeued ihe red rings will become circular trenches iu the Lint* paper.���New

Ths Liberty Cap Dates Away Back to
E>rly Greek Times.
From very early times one of the dls.
tinguishing marks of a slave, both In
Greece uud oriental countries generally, was the lack of any covering for
the head. Accordingly the cap came to
be considered the Insljjnla of liberty,
umi when slaves were given their freedom they were presented with a cap
as an emblem of It
In Sparta the helots wore n cap of
dogskin, und tills was reckoned a
badge of servitude, but upon gaining
their freedom this wus replaced by n
cap of a different material, of another
shape nud ornamented with Mowers.
A similar custom wns observed In
Itome, where the presentation of the
plleus, or cap, was always u part of
the ceremony of manumitting a slave;
hence nrose the proverb, "Servos ud
pileum vocnre"
Also on medals the cap Is the symbol
nf liberty and Is nnsiiully represented

point When a cap was expused to the
people's view un tlie top of a spear, as
In the case of the conspiracy uguliist

The Goddess of Liberty on Mount
Aventlne was represented ns holding
n cap In her band as a symbol of freedom The Jacobins wore a red cap

Gnglund a blue cap with a wblte bor

The custom wbtch prevails among
onlverslty students of wearing n cap

been started to Increase the pay of ]
the members of parliament to $3,000.
For the past six or seven years the

last session an allowance was made
for stenographic help.
S'xtv-five thousand dollars was
voted for the purpose, which amounted
to about $400 per member. This year
Home members desire to draw the allowance that they might spend it on
help as they wished. However, the auditor-general decided this could not
be done, but that the money had to bs

The opera then, us now. terminated with the passace of tlie Hed Sea by

Owing to want of skill of lilt machinist and tqefia painter, who contKv-

This lasted throughout the first season. The next it was reproduced with
similar brilliant success (on tbe first
night) for the music and titular
laughter at tlie end uf the opera. The
next da-, wliile Rossini was indulging in his usual habit ol lying in lied

"Why," replied Tottola, "I have

Toronto, Ont.. Nov. 26.���"In view of
the circumstances and having regard
to the rapid growth cf the city and tho
ever Increasing demands caused by the
cltys development, 1 am of the opinion
that no change should be made ln the

-Such ts the conclusion ot Assessment Commissioner Forman as a result ot the Investigation which hc

of the assessment system In Winnipeg, Moose Jaw, Regina, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver, to ascertain
the effect of partial and entire exemption of the improvements and the
desirability of accepting such a system for Toronto.

Winnipeg, Nov. 26.���W. D. Lanigan,
assistant freight traffic   manager   of
the C.  P. R., ln an  interview today, j
opened up some interesting aspects of!
the  present marketing conditions lu j
Western  Canada.    He  esimates  that I
$5,000,000 a year Is lost to the west'
by reason of the vast amount of grain
whloh is thrown on the market in a !
short period.   An indirect but substan-
tial loss is also caused by the railways ]
having to haul an abnormal number
of  empty  cars  from   the  lake front.!
Under    these    conditions,   he   says,
economic transportation Is Impossible, j
improved   storage   facilities   on    tne I
rami and an amendment to the Banli j
Vet authorizing    the   banks to   loan i
noney to the farmer on the security '
if the grain held by him in storage;
tre the principal remedies proposed.   I
In the first place, the   Bank   Act
ibould be amended so that the farm-.
ir will not be obliged to market   so |
large a proportion of his crop  imme-
dJately after harvesting, to meet hisi
������res3ting necessities.   There Is no rea-1
son, in my mind,  why   a farmer   of
;ood   character,   having   a   tangible
asset in the way of grain, should not
be permitted to get the same accom- j
���nodat.ion  from  the  banks that is af-1
"nrded  to  any  other   business   with
similar assets. |
"It is estimated  that   the   average
farmer Is forced to market at once 60 i
ier cent, of his crop to meet his cur-
-ent. and other liabilities. The result!
s that in the comparative short period between Sept. 15 and the close of
navigation,    or     practically    seventy!
lays,    roughly    speaking,    a   million
bushels of grain per day is pressed on-
'he world's market at the lake front, a
greater quantity than the eastern do-
mettle or the export market can ab-
sorb. i
"The effect of a glut of this kind
on the price is apparent to every person. The profit of the farmer, and
his consequent purchasing capacity is
seriously diminished, and the whole
country suffers as a natural consequence. The railroads are forced to
j transport enormous quantities ot
^rain in one direction, and to do this
are obliged to haul in the opposite direction an abnormal number of empty
iars, producing a tremendous activity
Cor a period of practically seventy
days out of 365.
"Economic transportation is impos-'
sible under these conditions. Tha
lake and ocean service given by the
water carriers is seriously congested,
and because of the tremendous offer-
ngs, lake and ocean freights, which
are governed by the demand and supply of tonnage naturally go up, In
creasing the cost of marketing our
grain ln the United Kingdom.
Sugestions have    been    made that
the erection of large interior elevators
would check the movement.   I do not
nsree with this conclusion.    If a car
of wheat that must eventually be marketed fcr export is stopped   and   unloaded In transit and then reshipped,
not only the cost of the double transportation service, but of the Intermediate elevation and storage must be a
tax on the grain and consequently on
the   producer.       The  cheapest  grain!
storage is on the farm.    To my mind
the  greatest  good that could  be  accomplished for the farming community, on  whose  prosperity the rest of
the community build theirs, Is to put
the farmer in the same position with
regard  to  the  banks as every other
business man is in, so that he need
not make such    an enormous   sacrifices.
"I have been told tbat there ls an
average loss  to  the farmers of five

A Polite Editor.
The almost total destruction ot the
tamarack, or larch, which took place
throughout Eastern Canada almost 30
yeara ago was caused by an insect,
the Larch Sawfly. It appeared again
about eight years ago and ln its
spread westward it Is repeating its
former devastation on the younger
To all who are interested in our forests the appearance of a comprehensive account of this Insect entitled
"The Large Larch Sawfly. with an ac
count of Its Parasites, other Natural
Enemies and Means of Control," by
the Dominion Entomologist, Dr. C.
Gordon Hewitt, wlll be welcome. This
has been published by the Dominion
Department of Agriculture as Entomological Bulletin No. 6 and Bulletin
No. 10 cf the Second Series ot the experimental Farms Bulletins, and may
be had tree on application at the Publications Brauch, Department of Agriculture. Ottawa,
Dr. Hewitt has stud'ed the lite, history, habits and means of control of
this injurious sawfly, both in England and North America. In England,
lt was found that the natural enemies,
especially parasitic Insects, effectively
gained control of outbreaks ot the Insect. Other natural enernlea were
mice and birds and a system of bird
encouragement was started on a large
scale,. The devastating spread pt the
sawfly in North America was due to
the comparative absence ot the natural meana of control. Several Important species of parasites new to
science, were discovered and have
been studied and described.
To Increase the number Qt natural
and ot the methods devised to encour-
age the birds and other means of control are described in tbis bulletin,
which consists of forty-two pages and
contains twenty-six figures, including
a coloured plate.
The publication of this bulletin ls
indicative of the attention whicli the
Division of Entomology is now devoting to the insect pests of our forests
which are responsible for incalculable
loss each year. ,-

On*L} of the most striking character-
iatics of Westminster and one which
���onr publicity authorities have not
been slow to make use of is the fact
that here Is iu very deed a city ot
homes, of beautiful gardens, of road*
lined with shady trees.
At Monday's meeting of the council
The Westminster Dally News does
not hold itself responsible for the
opinions expressed in correspondence.
Editor, Westminster Daily News:
Sir���Permit me through your columns to make a few remarks in amplification cf the formal notice by advertisement announcing the annual
meeting of the LlberalAssociation on
Friday, the 29th inst., in Eagles Hall,
this city.
Under our system of party government���the best, with all its defects
and abuses, that the Ingenuity of man
has thus far been able to devise���it Is
necessary for the well being and safety of the body politic, that ls, the people as a whole, that both the positive
and negative polos of the political
machine shall be properly functioning
at all times. By "political machine" 1
do not mean the term ln Its sinister
sense, but the whole organization and
mechanism of self-government by a
free people, which we have In theory
at least and which it is our own fault
as individual enfranchised units of th1?
commonwealth if we do npt possess
in essence and in reality as well.
Ihe Liberal parly in British Columb'a, occupying in the inevitable vicissitudes of political change and fortune, the. negative cr opposition role
for the time being, has duties devolv-
it was suggested that all the mountain
ash trees upon the city streets should j^g upon It not less essential and hard
*e cut down, while another comment ly less important than those ot tho
upon trees in general was that their ' positive or government party and up-
��jwu e ������������.  on the right performance of those du-
roots spread and damaged the cement ��ne8 ^^/^   great   nieasurej   not
sidewalks. The proposal to cut down only the safeguarding of the public
the particular trees referred to was welfare, but the interests and fate of
occasioned by the presentation of   a the party itself���whether it shall prove
itself fit ar.d Worthy fcr a return tu
power when the inevitable opportunity presents, or haa to pass the opportunity up through inability to grasp it.
As the functions of a Liberal Opposition, so far as British Columbia is
concerned, both federally and provin-
cially, are now vested solely in the
Liberal electorate o( the province,
which constitutes doubtless (active
ard Inactive! at least 50 per cent, of
the enfranchised people of the prov
ince. it is the more incumbent upon
the individual elector who hoid^ liberal views and principles to do his
duty at such a timo. so that there may
be evolved from the ample material
at hand a party wlvch shall at a verv
early day effectively represent n. C.
Liberalism 'n the councils cf the Prov-
ine.n'and of the Dominion.
In calling the annual mpet'ng cf
t^e New Westminster Liberal Asso-
o;at!on. which it 13 their dutv to do at
i this time, the Executive of the asso-
c'at'on cordially invite the a*tendarie>
i rf all.Liberals of the citv. active or inactive, whether formal members of th..
association or not and whether wishing to    identify themselves    actively
claim for damages against the city by
a lady who had sustained injury from
���dipping upon the fallen berries of the
Mountain Ash.
To destroy is generally far easier
than   to   construct,   but with our en
���eumbrance of timber upon the land it
may be that in some quarters the life ]
of a tree has come to be looked upon
as a    thing    ot    little  worth.    Tha'
Mountain Ash, or as it is known    in '
Europe, the Rowan, is one of the mes1;
beautiful of flowering tree3, while its.
bunches of beautiful red berries evei, !
now add a touch of color to the other '
wise sombre aspect of the streets. |
If it be decided to cut down    all,
these trees upon the streets now own-1
ed by the city there will still remain
hundreds . in   private    gardens   con
tiguous to the sidewalks.    Accidents
will always happen, but they are the
exceptions   wliich   prove   the   general
rule.   There is fur more danger from

On Burnaby Lake   Line���Large   Substation Is Planned on Boundary
Edmonds, Nov. 26���The B. C. E. R.
is making plans for the erection of a

Powers of Regulation by  Dominion-
Arguments and Questions Before
Supreme Court.
Ottawa, Nov. 26.���In the Supreme
Court this afternoon arguments proceeded cn the reference by the Cover-
i or-Oeneial-in-Cotinc 1 as to the powers
of the legislature.-, of the provinces to
grant exclusive rights cf fishery and
as to the ownership there and of
powers of regulation by the Dominion
The questions submitted ure as fol-,
1. Is it competent to the legislature
cf Britisli Columbia to authorize the
government of the province to grant
by way of lease, or otherwise, the exclusive right to fisli or in any or what
part or parts of water within the Railway Belt ?
(AT As to such waters as are tidal,
and ill) as to such waters as, although
not tidal, are in fact navigable.
2. Is it competent to the legislature
of Britisli Columbia to authorize the
government of the province to gram
by way of lease, ur otherwise, the ex
i elusive liglit. or any right, to flsh be-
earth o�� gravel, water packed into
place to the grades and slopes furnished in the plans. All rock used In ths
filling will be of a strong, hard, durable quality and of specific gravity of
not less than two and one half. Two
thlrd3 of it will be ordinary rip-rap
size, but at the discretion of the engineer some piece3 weighing as much as
a .thousand pounds may be used by
the contractors in the construction ot
the rock toe.
Clause 58 of the specifications
states: "Because of the occupancy
cf the waterfront and because it ma)
be found necessary to provide accom
niodatlons at the new locations for oc
cupants before disturbing their pres
ent water shipping facilities, it may
not be possible to commence opera
tions at one end of the work nor tc
proceed consecutively ln a continuous
line. Therefore the contractor may b������
required by the engineer to jump from
place to place as occasion demands
The average length of quay completed
at any jump will not be less than BOO
linear feet.
Some idea of the magnitude of the
work may be gathered from the fac*
that 805,600 piles of all varieties and
lengths will be used in the construe
tion and 14,27,000 cubic yards of gravel or earth in the fill. A total of
55.950 tons of rock is required for the
quay front.
The contractor Is required to pav
to all workmen employed a rate of
wages not less than is generally ac
eepted as current in the city for coin
petent workmen of the classes men
tioned and under any circumstances
the contractors will not be allowed
the rate nf wages less than those set
fort1! in the wage scale of the city.
The specifications also state that at--
much of the Improvement will be ac
compllshed as available funds will per
i"M. It is expected that the sum available will not bo less than $1,10.000 no-
more than $600,000, though it ytfti
probably be somewhere between thf
two figures.

Colonial   Secretary  Says   Not   Necessary at Present to Form One.
Ixindon, Nov. 26.���in the House of
Common*,- yesterday, Col. Yates, calling attention to the decision of the
Canadian Government to establish a
womaris Emigration branch in Britain,
asked Colonial Secretary Harcourt If
he would consider the question of
forming an Imperial Immigration
Board with 'Oversea representatives to
j;o thoroughly into the question of female emigration. He said the excess
of females over males in the United
Kingdom in 1911 was nearly a million
and a half.
Hon. 1/trx Harcourt was not, he said,
prepared Kinder the present circumstances to consider the question of
forming such a board. The subject
was und fir the consideration of th.i
Dominion Royal Commission, and it
has not yet been considered necessary
for the British Government to offer
any BporitiU encouragement to female

Mr. Saunders admitted that the bors ���>
once stopped in front of a Mr. Hardy's
house for five minutes. He thoughf
it was the noise of a loose puncheon in
the bridge. Mrs. Wolfe said it was

hole In the bridge, and Mr. Wolfe
said because a stick rose and hit tue
horse on the head.

Ideatbblow   with   his   sword.     All   the
other people lliat I  have mentioned sre
under the control of the matador.
Tbe weapons were uow Inspected by
tbe president, tbe men and horses retired and the first hull trotted Into the
arena. He was a big fellow, rather
slow moving, and he stood tor some
little time In the center of the arena
pazlng about him at the general scene.
The band wns playing gayly all this
t'me. A couple of toreadors advanced
and set the bull In motion b.v waving
tbeir ele ks Just In front of his bonis
It   ts   commonly   supposed   In   this
country that the toreador Is n uingniO
eently brave person wbo risks his life
for the pleasure of the eiclted populace.    That Is quite a mistake.    The
hull never goes for tbe man.  but always  for the clonk.    So long os the
toreador holds the clonk to one side
instead of In front of him nnd has the
Usual   amount  of   common  sense   and
ability  there ls no reason nt uli  why
he should receive a scratch, and I believe thnt he very rarely receives even
a scratch     lf be Is fool enough to get
drunk before he enters the arena, tlmt
Is   another   mntter.     Under   ordinary
conditions anybody who Is pretty good
at  "blind   mnns   buff"   could   do   tbe
work of the toreador.    The bull, as s
matter of fact, cannot turu so quickly
as tbe "bllud man."
After a little of this teasing from
tbe toreadors a picador advanced,
fiance ready poised. Here is the really
cruel part of bullfighting, the part
that makes It hideously revolting to all
decent people. The borse ridden by
!the picador ls n poor old back, and It
Is brought Into the nrenn for no olher
purpose than to be killed by the bull
In the sight of the populace. There Is
a bandage over one eye so tbat the
borse cannot see the deadly approaching horn or the bull. Tbe piendor rides
his horse right up to the bull, nnd the
bull Is allowed plenty of time to gore
the borse to death. Not the slightest
attempt is made to save the horse. I
wnnt to emphasize this because one
had always understood that the horses
were killed more or less by accident
Why are tbe horses brought In to he
killed? f'linmplons or bullfighting wlll
tell yon that the 'death of the horse
Saves the life of the matador, tbut It
gires the picador an opportunity or In-
flirting llie tlrst wound nnd that the
mere act of goring the horse robs the
bull or Ills natural strength Twatl

done Just ns well hy men on font or

ways. The horses nre killed tn mnke

Now comes the turn of the bnnflerll

from In front of the animal. This requires skill and speed lf Is tbe only
rnrt of the whole proceeding wbich reflects the slightest credit for bravery or
agility upon the men lo tbe arenn.
The bull, after being wounded by the
picador, Is now currying the darts of
tbe hnndcrllleros In his back. Natural-

inmtador to1 finish blm off with one
I thrust of his sword. He stands ln front
of tbe bull, who waits for tbe thrust
with lowered heart. The wretched

Ancient  Legend That Corresponds to
-Our Biblical Story of Eve.
One day. hs thiy rested at noon
neneath the thick shade of a Kadam-
3a tree, the King gazed for a long time
at, the portrait of his mistress. And
suddenly he broke silence and said:
Rasakosha, this is a woman. Now, a
woman is the one thing about which
I know nothing. Tell me, what is the
nature of women? Then Rasakosha
smiled, nnd Raid: King, you shouM
certainly keep this question to ask
the Princes ; for it is a hnrd question. A very terrible creature indeed
is a woman, and one formed ol
strange elements. Apropos I will tell
you a story, listen.
In the beginning, when Twashtri
came to the creation of woman, he
found that he had exhausted his materials in the making ol man, and
that no solid elements were kit. Ill
this dilemma, after profound meditation, he did aa follows: He took the
rotundity of the moon, and the curves
of creepers, and the clinging of tendrils, and the tumbling of grass, and
tiie slenderncsn of the reed, and the
bloom of flowers, and the lightness ol
leaves, and tiie Uipcritg of the' elephant's trunks, and the glances ol
deer, ard the clustering nl rows nl
bees, and the joyous gaiety ol sunbeams, and the weeping of clouds,
ai:d the fickleness of the winds, and
tho timidity of thr hare, and the vanity of the peacock, and the softness
of the parrot's bosom, and the hardness of adamant, ond the sweetness
of honey, and the cruelty of the tiger,
ard the warm glow ��f fire, and the
coldness of snow, nnd the chattering
of jays, and the cooing of the kokila,
ana the hypocrisy of the crane, and
the fidelity of the chakrawaku; and
compounding all these together, ha
made woman and gave her to man.
But after one week, man came l>
him. and said: Lord, this creature that
you have given ma makes iny Ufa
miserable. -She chatters incessantly,
and teased me beyond endurance,
never leaving me alone; and she ru-
quires incessant atteiitio-, and takes
all my time up, ��r:d crie.: about nolh-
ing and is always idle; and so I have
come to give her back again, as I
cannot live with her. So T.washtl'l
said: Very well, and he took her back.
Then after another week, man cam-��
again to him and said: Lord. I Iind
that my life is very lonely since I
gavf you back that creature. I i j-
member how she used to dance and
sing to ms, and look at nie out cf tlu
corner of her eye, and play with ui^.
and cling to me; and her laughter
was music, and she was lieautjful to
look at, and soft to touch; &o give tier
back to nie again.
So  Twashtri  said:   Very  well;   and
gave her back again.   Then alter only
three  days,  man  cnme  back   to   linn
again and said: I.ord, I know not how
it is; hut after all, I have come to Ibe
conclusion tliat she is more ol a tumble than a pleasure to me; s" plen-e
take  her  back   again.     Hut Twashtri
said: Out on you!   I!c off!   I wi'.! have
no more of this,    Yi>u must inniiMje
how   vou  can.    Then   man  said;   Hut
I cam ot live with her.   And I waslitn
replied: Neither could you live without her.    And he turned liis back m\
man, and went on with his work, '1 lien
man  said:   Whut   is   to   be  d uie:   I, T
I cannot lhe cither  with or without
And Rasdkosha cense I, and looked
at the Kin^. lint tlie Kirg reniiiiied
silent, gazing ii.len'Jy at the portrait
of tlie Prrnces3.

Allocations    of    Coquitlam    Council's
Adoption of New Principle Overriding Dominion Laws.
The arbiters In the Sinclair vs. Co-
quitldm municipality arbitration case
recently awarded Mr. William Sinclair
$1116 as* the value of the piece of nib
land on Lake Como road expropriated
for road purposes. From this wan
deducted $500 as the enhanced value
of Mr. Sinclair's land through the
formation ot the road.
Mr. Sinclair assumes that the council ha- adopted the principle introduce^ by the award of assessing
land for what he describes as "supposed improvements by the formation
of a road." He writes: "Although my
land has a frontage on the road of
half a mile lt contains less than one-
fourth of a quarter section or a depth
of about ten chains." At the rate
levied a full quarter section would be
liable to a tax or $2000 and a full section would produce a revenue of $8000,
according to Mr. Sinclair's calculations.
He further alleges that the I^ak-3
Como road ls practically impassably
towards the Junction, and that the
Western Canada Power company, Who
built it, could not haul their materials
over it owing to the steepness of the
gradients. They had to make a detour
of ten miles via Port Moody and th"
Forks to reach a point one mile arid
a half from the Junction.
In Mr. Sinclair's judgment the arbiters' award is a clumsy attempt to
thrust aside the Dominion law relating
tn roads formation and an invasion of
the province of the assessor of taxes
who was the only lawful authority in
