SICK AND ORPHANS
\J Among the many charitable associations actively exercising their professed mission of helping the needy
at the present time, there le perhaps
no more energetic coterie of busy
workers that those ladles who havu
undertaken to see that the little fellows In Providence Orphanage have
a beart-to-beart talk with the patron
aalnt of childhood, Santa Claus.
GoodleB���oranges, nuts, fruits, candles���all sorts of things that can mak.-
a bulge In the stomach of a healthy
child-are to be provided in plenty.
Useful articles are also to be given
the children, hut the boys and girls
are not so exercised over these mufflers and new shoes. Mufflers don't
taste good, and you can't eat shoes.
Incidentally, the ladles who have
undertaken tp provide the big treat
for tbe kiddles are going around wltb
a little book and engaging smiles
There Is already a nice amount on
hand, and Treasurer Mrs. Goulet Is
confident that the fund will soon bi
big enough fo provide everything
needed to make the little orphan.!
get a real  glimpse ot heaven.
The patients of tbe Royal Colum
bian hospital are not to be forgotten
the members of the Women's Auxll
lary having undertaken to distribute
gifts to all Inmates of the public
wards on Christmas day.
A large number of these are log
gers and railway camp men, who have
been stricken down by disease or accident, hundreds of miles from home
and friends, and tnat tbe attention of
the Auxiliary on Dec. 25 will bo Appreciated Is certain.
This Is only the second year thai
any concerted effort has been mado
to bring a little Christmas cheer to
the hospital patients, but the gratl
tude shown by those benefitted is In
duct mont enough to ensure thle be
coming a permanent feature In thl.-
city, as it Is in nearly all large cities
in thc civilized world.
To provide an easy means of receiving contributions, lists have been
opened at the offices of the local
newspapers, and all funds turned in
will be promptly acknowledged.
The ladles aro anxious to receive at
least $100 and as the fund closes ou
Tuesday, and only $10 has been re
ceived to date, lt ls urpent that all
charitably inclined send in their mite
without delay.
No sum Is "too small and this np
peal Bhould apply to all in the cltv
business men, shop and office workers, tradesmen, laborers, housewives
ord children alike. This Is the season
of gond will. Let Westminster show
her hand.

STEVESTON MEMBER
OBLIGED TO RESIGN
From  Royal' Commission on Agriculture���Sittings" In  Westminster ,
Jan 17 and 18.
Victoria, Dec. 19.���The royal commission on agriculture, of which Mr.
W. H. Hayward, M.L.A., Is chairman,
began Its career yesterday, when, alter tbe members had been duly sworn
by Mr. Justice Murphy and the com
mission read, both morning and after
noon sessions for organization work
were held ln the executive chamber
Interviews with the prime minister
and the minister of agriculture first
being beld for a free and Informal
iuterchange of views as to procedure
and the scope of desirable enquiry.
Much to the regret of alfconcerned
Mr. Thomas Kidd of Steveston finds
It Impossible for him to accept tin
place upon the commission assigned tu
him, Ill-health Interdicting the requlr
ed activity and travel, and his reslg
nation has been accepted.
The commission is therefore cou
stltuted of Messrs. Hayward (chair
man); J. J. Campbell of Nelson; J.
Kldston of Vernon; Alex. Lucas, ML
A. of Agassiz; W. Duncan of Comox,
and S. Shannon of Cloverdale, witb
Mr. Chriatenseu of Holberg as secretary.
After considerable discussion lt wa3
decided to Initiate the wcrk of investigation forthwith and make such progress aB may be possible before the
session of the legislature. Sittings
for the hearing of witnesses and Investigation of conditions have there
fore been arranged as follows ;
At Vancouver, Jan.  9,  10. and  11.
At New Westminster, Jan. 13 and 14.
At Victoria, Jan. 17 And lii.
Arrangements have also been made
to hear evidence from members of the

Railway Department.
Ottawa, Deo. 19.���The civil servlc*
at the capital ts agog over the repuri
of Sir George Murray on the cendi
tion uf public service in the Domin
Ion, some recouiineudatlons being gratifying to the civil servants.
One ls the Justification ot the oft
repeated complaint that officers or
employees of different department*
wh;>Ht! work is wholly similar are paid
salaries that ure widely varied. An
other Is the fact that promotions frequently bave been based on political
or other Influence rather tluin on
merit.
The third division, most of whose
memliers lor yearB have bo��n at a
maximum uf $1200 and unable to gn
higher without passing an academic
examination are especially pleased
over the declaration that this test
Bhould not apply and that the max!
mum sbould be increased to $1500 or
$1800.
Action Problematical.
Commenting on tho report the Eve
nlng Citizen says;
"The government since coming Into
office has had in mind extensive civil
service reforms Including bringing the
outside service under a commtssloi.
and altering condition* ao as to re
lleve themselves of much routine. Th*
report will act as a guide to them
but whether any legislation upon It
wlll be Introduced thla session It
problematical. It depends npon the
progress made. In any event It is
expected that provision wlll be mad?
to relieve the third division and to
remove the stumbling block to nd
vancement.
"Much disappointment, however,
was expressed that the report did
not Include some reference to the am
blguous position whloh the railway

Towage of Interest to Weetmlneter Shippers.
Vancouver, Dec. 19.���Following evidence In tbe dispute over the towage
of two pile booms from Blackie Spit
and Serpentine river. His Honor Judge
Mclnnes yesterday gave a verdict ln
favor of Messrs. Champion ft White
against Mr. C. M. Bell for the $22i
claimed as towage fees. Hla honor
also dismissed the defendant's counter
claim.
The contracts for towage were admitted by Mr. Bell, who claimed, however, that on the second tow nearly
100 piles were missing, only 248 out
of 382 reaching their destination, ne
claimed that the plaintiffs were liable
for this shortage- to an amount exceeding the towage charges.
A large number of towboat owners
and captains were called as wltnesee
by the plaintiffs to show that lt was
not the custom to hold the owners
of tugs liable for booms or logs lost
In bad weather. Mr. 1.. B. McLellan

Sydney, N.S.W., Dec. 19.���One hund

VANCOUVER VALUES
TOO HIGH FOR CNR.
FREIGHT TERMINALS
Vancouver, Dec. 19.���One of the fea
tures of the conference being hold In
Vancouver between the city council
and the C.N.R. officials regarding
False Creek ls the demand of th-
aldermen that the railroad company,
should It be given any privileges, es
tabllsb Its terminus both for freight
and passenger steamship traffic on
Burrard Inlet.
The company Is willing to grant th'-
passenger terminus to Vancouver bu'
the other stipulation it rejects on the
grounds that property is so hlgn
priced in Vancouver that elevators and
big manufacturing works would find
't almost prohibitive to establish
there
They argue that these must go else
where, probably to the Fraser river
and as such industries would supply
the class of freight traffic the road is
after It would be absolutely essential
for them to make the freight shipping
points where they exist
At the afternoon session of the conference the time was taken up mostly
ln discussing the location of th
road terminals of the compaay i
some agreement be made tor H
of False creek.
It Is proposed to establish a i	
station on the present head of the?
flat landa and should the Hat be Mated
through the Grandview or Mown*
Pleasant hills, It was intimated
another station would be built .
three-quarters of a mile out to i
the south and east districts ol Vns��-
cuver.
The company also ask that ft fas-
granted the right to operate a
at  Its central depot ss well
in the city.
So far nothing bat been disclosed l
the conference as to the route fli
way would take fn order tlo
False Creek. Should ft go by ny otr
Grandview as has been one at tte?
suggestions, it Is almost certain to
pass through Westminster. If by-
Mount Pleasant it will in all likelihood
branch off the projected Lulu
line.

Wlll Oo to Yale.      .'
Washington, Dec. 19.���President
Taft has decided to accept the proffer of the Kent professorship of law
at Tale and probably will take up his
duties at New Haven In the spring.
The president wes said tonight to
have determined upon accepting the
Yale .professorship for several reasons. Tie wlll not be restricted merely to lectures to Yale st ents, but
wlll be permitted to lecture, If he desires, in other law schools or upon the
platform or to engage In sny other occupation which be sees fit.
If the president hod returned to
Cincinnati to resume law practice he
felt ho would have but little oppor-
tulty for practice. He felt that he
eould not appear In cases before the
United States supreme court, because
he has appointed a majority of Its
membership.
He remembered, when he thought
of tho law. that he had named many
federal Judges' In Ohio before whom
he might have to argue cases, and he
believed that about the only sort of

SEAntE CHINESE
IN BIG TONG WAR
Battle Which Started In China to Be
Continued  by  Rivals  in  Their
New  Home.
Seattle, Dec. 19.���Seattle Chinese,
members of the powertul Hop Sing
tong, were arming themaelvea today ln
expectation of the outbreak of a tong
war between this city and Portland,
as a result of the murder last night of
Wong Song, a Hop Sing tongman.
Wong Song was shot to death with
an automatic revolver. Police arrested Go Young Ging, Ding Pon and Mrs.
Sing Ylng. Blood stains had been
found on a garbage can at the rear
of tlieir house. In the can waB an automatic revolver which had recently
been discharged.
This morning, at police headquarters, the two men and tho woman were
questioned in an attempt to learn
whether they were members of the
Bow Leung tong.
The Bow Leung tong Is numerically
strong in Portland. There are few
members In Seattle. The Hop Sing
tong is strongest here. The two have
been rivals for hundreds of years ln
China.
Several months ago Seid Bing, a
Bow Leung tongman, was murderer In
Portland. His body was shipped to
Seattle in a trunk and was discovered
at the King Street station. Wong Sl
Sam and Low Soon, members of the
Hop Sing tong were arrested charged
with the murder. Wong Si Sam was
found guilty and sentenced to die, but
the supreme court afterwards for
ant of positive evidence let him off
with a year in the penitentiary.
Low Soon, after a long legal fight,
was discharged Saturday from custody
of the law. Advices from Portland
are to the effect that he came directly
to Seattle.
WILSON Will CUT
OUT RECEPTIONS
address the business meetings of these
societies."
J*r. WllBon eald that his open door
policy would be preserved at the
White House so far as It was physically possible and that he intended to
have the doors of the executive offices
thrown wide open so that the president would bo accessible at all times,
but only to those "who have business
to transact."
Another White House tradition
which Mr. Wilson probably will alter
to some extent Is the prohibition of
the newspapermen of referring to conversations with the president ln the
first person. Mr. Wilson said he probably would express him self often and
in the first person in statements 1b-
Biied from time to time on public questions.

Kitty Marlon Given Month In Jail for
Turning  in  False Flre
Alarm.
London, Dec. 19.���Kitty Marion, an
actress, was sentenced yesterday in
Bow Street court to a month's imprisonment with the option, which Bhe indignantly refused, of paying a $125
fine for giving false fire alarms. The
magistrate made the sentence excei��
tionally severe because of the largi
number of such outrages recently perpetrated by suffragettes.
MISS Marion made a statement In
court throwing a curlouB light upon
the working of the suffragette mind,
Three years ago, she Baid, she appeared in the Bow Street court on a
charge of breaking a window. She
did that, she said, in order to attract
public attention to the conditions ot
Uie stage, which n""?6 ". slmost lm-
IppSSlblU 'Dr a woman to earn an hon-
\e*l living. It waB the unwritten law
that a woman who wanted to go
straight could not make her way on
the stage. She challenged the actors'
Association to deny tho truth of her
statements.
Since then she had been boycotted
out of the profession and had been
obliged to turn to other employment
She got work as a domestic servant
"All went well." she continued, "till
my employer asked for my insurance
card. I told her I refused to pay any
insurance tax. and had to leave. Then
it happened that Irish women were
betrayed ln the Home Rule bill. I intended to make a much stronger protest, lint mv friends of the Women's
Serial and Political I'nion begged me
not to do so. and. therefore, I content-
1 d myself with metaphorically turning
the lioso on the government."
RELIEVE  CHRISTMAS  FAMINE
Princeton, N. J.. Dec. 19.���The days
of public receptions in the big east
wing of the White House are numbered and in the next administration
people will not be received at the executive mansion merely for the purpose of shaking hands or gazing in
curiosity at the president of the United States. President-elect Wilson declared last night that lie saw no U3u
in spending time just to receive peo
pie who had nir business to transact
at the White House.
Outside    of the needless    physical. 	
strain of receiving thousands of peo-1 |(��g criTshVr WlLt.
pie when the president vas endeavor-1
ing to use his energies tur inure pub-'
lie purposes.    Mr. Wilson said, hedld
not believe in lnoossftnt receptions to
tourists and   the   numerous   societies
that, come annually to Washington, He
also  indicated that he would   not attend very many of the banquets that
Motional   societies   of   various     kinds
hold In Washington and to which tne
president iB so regularly invited.
"Many of these societies.'' he said,
'represent Important objects and I
appreciate the possibilities of assisting government work in speaking before them, but I really do not see any
need of going to the banquets of the
organizations.   It might  be hetter to
London, Dec. 19.���Sir lienry Norman, whose criticisms in the House
cf Commons on the Marconi contract
led to the enquiry, was the chief witness before the select committee yesterday. He declared that the ratification of the" agreement of 1912 would
be contrary to publlc Interest, would
Inevitably result ln something approaching a monopoly by Marconi
Company and would be an extravagance with public money, prejudicial
to the scientific development of the
wireless telegraph. If the agreement
were ratified, he said, Inventors would
be compelled to go to the Marconi
Company hat ln hand. If their inventions were refused they would be
discouraged. If purchased they would
be tended  to promote the monopoly.
Sir Henry held that the agreement
of 1909 gave the,post master-general
the right to present the future Marconi patents and all information as to
Bccret processes. The postmaster-
general had already acquired for cash
every right he was now seeking.
Therefore the agreement of 1912 was
superfluous.
The witness alleged that the urgency plea waa baseless and emphatically opposed to handing over, lock
stock and barrel, of a great Imperial
scientific undertaking to a commercial company. If the Australian post-
office and the American army could
maintain their own wireless service,
he regarded the suggestion of placing the service in the hands of the
Marconi Company aa humiliating and
protested against it as an affront to
British science and enterprise.
Letters were then submitted to the
committee by the postmaster-genera!
ln reply to press criticisms on the
transactions in Marconi shares standing in the name of his relative. Hon.
Gerald S. Montague, ln which It was
said that Montague never purchased
Marconi Bhares himsolf. but his name
had been used as a banker to hold
Bhares in behalf of Amsterdam correspondents.

COMMONS MAY TRY
TO REFORM SENATE
WOULD   BE   DISGRACED.
In the course of a speech at a banquet given by the New York Cliam-
bur of Commerce the other day, Mr.
Ellin Root, Secretary of State In tbe
Roosevelt cabinet, referring to the
Punama Canal tolls, declared that:
"Americans have a treaty with
Great Britain under which wo
agreed that all questions arlslns
upon the interpretation of treatlos
shall be submitted to arbitration. It
seems hardly conceivable, yet there
are men who say wo will nevor arbitrate on the question of the construction of that treaty.
"And I say to you that If we refuse to arbitrate on it we shall be
ln the position of the merchant
who is knwn to all the world to be
falac to hla promises. With our
nearly ��800.000,000 of foreign trade
we shall stand In the world of commerce as a merchant false to hf.
word.
"Among nil the peoples of this
earth who hope for better days of
righteousness nnd peace in thc future, we shall stand In the light of
our multitude of declarations for ar
bltratlon and peace, discredited, dl*
honored hypocrites, with tho fair
name of America blackened, with
the self-respect of American gone,
with the Influence of America fot
advance along the pathway of progress and civilization anuulled, dishonored, and disgraced."
These are very strong words; but
according to the New York Times and
tho New York Evening Po3t. and
other Impartial organs of United
States publlc opinion, thoy are none
too Btrong.
It. Is worth noting that the senator's words were received b? a repre-

i    THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS.
l'he real spirit that prevails at thlr
snuon of the year must not be con
fused with the superficial evidence
��f spontaneous good-fellowship and in
discriminate giving of more or les.-i
appreciated presents. There is some-
thins baek of this expressed goodwill
lo mm, a latent sympathy that cftcn
spends ilself ln ubcIcss channels lm
-cause there is no directive force.
Thc exchange of gifts at Christmas
tide ia so rooted an institution that,
lacking out3ide suggestion, few of us
think of giving without at the same
time, unconsciously perhaps, thinking
of receiving in return.
All the more honor, therefore, to
those individuals or associations
which use their influence for the di
reeling of gifts in thc more deserving
Channels.
In Western Canada we are fortunate
in having no slum or Sliacktov.n prob
1cm, but that docs not mean that tbe
poor nre have not with us.
There is poverty of material things.
but there is also poverty of social ad
'Vantage.    Tlie stranger    within    our
Sates may have gold in his purse and
yet lack a home where he may spend
Christinas   wilh   friends.     Most   men
are chary of inviting outsiders to their
firesides   on   this   occasion;   this   1.1
first of all a family gathering time.
To these strangers the Christmas din-
ner and entertainment which is to lie
provided by the Y. M. C. A. will prove
a. welcome attraction ar.d th's splendid
institution will add lo its renown b)
this move.

London Police Gather in Habitues of
Exclusive Gaming House.
London, Dec. 19.���Fifty detectives,
together with dozens of uniformed po
lice, raided a gambling house in Belgrade square tonight and arrested lc
men and women of considerable Bocial
prominence. The mansion was the
largest gambling establishment ever
tackled in London, the raid being tiie
result of a determined effort on th^
part of the authorities to crush the increasing gambling tendency.
The counters which were seized
ranged in value from ~i% to i'-iM). A
I total of $4065 were seized, while the
croupier held counters valued nt 540,-

Those who were arrested were en

If Upper House Kills Naval BUI Feeling -Is That Drastic  Measures
Will   Follcw.
Ottawa, Dec. II).--The general feeling liere is If the Senate obstructs thi
.government's naval proposals, as Liberal newspapers have been hinting of
lttie, thc government will not gojto
the country on that account, but Is
very much more likely to bring ln a
measure for senate reform.
' If the naval proposals aro passed
hy the House and tbat Is practically s
certainly, the government will take
this as sufficient endorsatlon, as it is
entltli-i) to do, and In due course lt
isMll HO. to the couutry with its perma-
ll^nt pollcy. But going to the countty
because of the Senate obstruction
Would not In the least oegree alter tht>
Oljaraeter of the Senate and would be
ii useless move.
,Tho general impression is thnt the
upper chamber will not suffer Itself
to he made a puppet of Sir Wllfird,
particularly with Sir George Ross ln
lljr  leadership.
,'Tlie speech of Mr. Poster will, It ls
believed, have a big effect In bringing
the opposition to Ita senses. The general expectation is that the Liberal
members will take a much more
.peaceful attitude after the Christmas
recess and that the bill will be quick-
^disposed of in thy Commons.

DEFEAT JOHNSON
THEN CHANGE LAWS
Fight   Promoters   Have   no   Use   for
Black Against Black Matches-
Negro Fighters Doomed.
Whether Jack Johnson wlll return
to the ring is a problem that must bn
solved by tbe hand of the future. A
month ago mention uf the black boxer's name caused a nauseating feeling
lo come over right-living people, but
time brings about changes.
Although lt has been generally concluded that Johnson Is an outcast of
the ring; that no promoter would bo
courageous enough to stage a bout
witli the Ethiopian giant a principal;
that the police will drive him out of
^he country, somehow or otlier there
ls a vague feeling that the ring haB
not seen the last of Jack Johnson.
There is widespread agitation
against the matching of whites and
blacks. Legislation covering that
point has been advocated, and lf such
legislation comes to pass negro boxers will no longer find the- ring a lucrative business to follow.
When Johnson was recently Involved In trouble ln Chicago over the Cameron girl, Hugh D. Mcintosh, the well-
known Australian boxing promoter
"who is at the head of thc game In the
Antipodes, cancelled Johnson's engagements tn Australia, announcing
that he would never again have any\
thing to do with the black. Mcintosh
Tias just taken another step concerning colored boxers. He says that In
future he will not match a white with
a black.
Promoters the world over maintain
that a contest between two blacks ls
a poor proposition. It Is obvious then
that if they all combine to do away
-with matching whites and blacks, or lf
legislation toward that end Is passed,
the colored glove men will find the
lioxing sport rough sledding. It will
practically mean the extermination of
the black boxer. No matter how one
looks at it. Jack Johnson looms up as
the man to blame.
Jim Corbett ls a firm believer tn
tho general movement t<�� prohibit
���whites from meeting blacks, but Jim
is morally certain that such a code ol
lawe, legislative or unwritten, will not
come into effect until after Johnson
has been defeated by a white man.
Ever since the Reno fiasco an effort
has been made to locate a llly-sklnned
boxer capable ot conquering the black
champion. The Caucasian race has
made an Insistent demand for such a
man, but, unfortunately for the glove
sport, Johnson has continued to reign
aa champion and has brought tne
game into ill repute through bis loose
living.
Johnson has retired several times,
but haB alwaya returned. Jim Corbett
believes he ia not done with the ring
as yet and that he wlll be forced to
defend the title when the right boxer
to meet hlm ia developed.
"They can talk about ordinances,
stopping a bout ln wbich Johnson is
to be a contender," says Corbett, "but
Just as soon aa a white boxer can be
found who has an even or a little better than even chance cf defeating the
negro the bars will be lifted. No one
wants to see Johnson go out of the
ring game un undefeated champion.
When the real 'hope' appears Joh.i-
son wlll be forced to meet him, tha
same aa Jeffries was brought out of
retirement.
"After watching the Flynn-Johnsdh
pictures 1 have reached the conclusion that Johnson ie done right now,
and I believe Johnson knows that bet
being the feature of the evening.

slipping���in fact, has slipped. He
realizes that and wlll probably try to
quit the ring for good, but egotism

I believe laws will be made prohibiting white boxers from meeting

From a ladder track the Incoming
traffic from the east Is to be received
Into the northerly yard at the east
end of the terminal, which will contain seven tracks 2900 feet long and
with a capacity of 455 cars.
From the receiving yard the cars
are drawn off through a similar ladder track to that on the other end of
the westbound hump. The hump for
the traffic In jthe reverse direction
will be similar to IL Both of these
humps when completed will have
run-around tracks for solid through
trains that have not to be broken up
for classification at the hump.
The westbound classification yard,
Into which the cars will descend from
the hump, has a double ladder approach and will, when completed, contain 27 track* 1"00 feet long with a
capacity of 540 cars.
The bulk of the traffic Is westbound
and ln consequence a large storage
capacity for Pacific coast freight is
required. The westbound classification yard, therefore, is to have two
outlets, one from the south Into the
westbound departure yard and the
other Into the storage or holding yard.
A track leading out at about the
centre of the classification yard discharging ladder makes approach for
all tracks to the south of that outlet

J. Coll

on   "Christ  and  Barabbas."
Mr. J. Culin Forbes, R.C.A., the
Canadian, who has ]>ainted more public men than perhaps any other artist, and whose portrait ot Gladstonn
is frequently called the best ever
done ol that statesman, is engaged iii
the execution of an ambitious canvas
called "Christ and Barabbas." In his
studio the other day he was good
enough to talk about tbo difficulties ul
conceiving such a work.
"I do not renumber 'Barabbas' being used in painting as a foil to
Christ," he said. "Even in literature
the only book with this subject as its
motif that comes to my mind is Marin
Corelli's, considered by many to ba
one of the finest word paintings wo
have.
"There are. of course, difficulties
which every painter meets in portraying sn Oriental picture ���atmosphere,
for instance, and for my picture I have
secured all the costumes arid paraphernalia from Palestine; but the outstanding difficulty, I find, is to mould
tlte face of Christ. Many of the
painters who have attempted this subject have coniessed their dissatisfac
tion with the results achieved, and
you will not have failed to note that
most of th*m have been influenced by
the type of *ace of their country."

to be surpassed as a truthful and effective wrtrait," according to one critic. What many considered to be a
better eflort ia that painted by Mr.
Forbes at Mr. Gladstone's home. Oi
this he says:
"I stayod fcr a considerable time
at Hawarden studying him both in
private and public life. He would
sit in one comer of his study writing
and Mrs. Gladstone in another, ami I

arch.
Munich, Dec. 19.���The body of the
late Prince Regent Luitpold of Bavaria was carried today to the sepulchre beneath the altar of the Church
of the Atlnes, in this city, where lt
was laid beside King Maximilian II.
The German Emperor, King of ths
Belgians, King of Saxony, Archduke
Francis Ferdinand, heir apparent of
Austria-Hungary, and a number of
princes representing the royal houses
of Europe, followed tho coffin In the
procession which passed through the
streets crowded with silent mourners
All the time the cortege was on Its
way to the church and during the service, minute guns were fired and
church bells tolled throughout the
city.
Although during his life the aged
Prince Resent had declined to adopt
a royal title because, as he said, the
real king was still living but unable
to rule on acount of Insanity. Bavaria treated the dead Luitpold with
kingly honors. The funeral was conducted with all the ritual employed
'n the case of Bavarian sovereigns.
Including an escort attired In medieval
costumes while the coffin was accompanied by cowled candlebearers
The heart of the dead recent was cm-
halmed separately and interrpd with
those of many preceding Bavarian
rulers at the village of Altoetting.

Canada's Water Power.
It is estimated that thc available
water power in Canada is 17,000,000
horse-power. Tint developed in 1910

which 742,000 horse-power was for
electrical energy, 158,051 for thn paper

goyeruor-general of Canada, was tli*
principal speaker at the Mansion
House today al a. meeting to arrange
the celebration of a sentury of peace
between the Eugllsh-apeaking,peoples.
Earl Grey waB heartily applauded In
his remark that aulhough the boundaries of Canada and America were
side beside 4000 miles, not a sentinel,
fort or gun was placed along them. He
recalled the visit to Ottawa of Hou.
Ellhu Root and the impression created
by his omphalic, declaration that peace
between the two countries would b��
permanent.
The meeting having adopted a resolution of sympathy with tho family of
the late American ambassador, Mr.
Whltelaw Reid, Earl t'.rey read a long
list of messages of sympathy with the
movement, Including ono written by
Mr. Reid.
There also were letters from mem
bers of the British cabinet, including
Premier Asquith, and a cable dispatch
from Col. Theodore Roosevelt. Th��j
Premier In his letter promised the
support of both himself and the British government.
He pointed out that the proposal to
erect monuments in England, America
and the British Colonics to commemorate the centenary, had met with the
approval of the British committee, and
he thought that the three proposals
mentioned were worthy of adoption.

London, Dec. 19.���The Daily Tele-
garph, in the course of an editoria'
on the peace centenary, Bays:
"There is real recognition In the
N'ew World of the silent barrier which
Great Britain opposes to what might.
if not discouraged by the knowledge
of our fixed policy tward the United
States, become the aspiration of on��.
powerful European state toward Soutb
America.
"Indeed, it is hardly too much to say
that the maintenance of the Munroo
Doctrine Is now almost as much guaranteed by ourselves as by the Uulteo
States."
The other papers published . editorials in terms of the warmest approval
of the proposals.
' The Chronicle regards it as a most
important object lesson in the face
of the existing European crisis.
The Daily News expresses the hope
that Ihe settlement of the Panamu

the celebration of the,-centenary hy a
practical demonstration of a' wlBe and

New York, Dec. 19.���The American
committee for the celebration of the
one hundred years of peace among
English-speaking peoples, announced
tonight that lt had mailed a copy of
resolutions recently adopted, inviting
Earl Grey, chairman, and other representatives of the British committee,
to become guests of the American
committee for a conference to be held
in New York next April.
It is considered probable that several prominent Englishmen will visit
New York to assist In the formation
cf an international committee to have
general supervision over the entire
celebration plans and to consider representations at the ceremonies to be
heid in Ghent on Christmas Eve, 1914,
and In January. 1915.
It -Is expected that this international
committee wlll adopt the suggestion
made by Senator Root that all human
activity throughout English-sneaking
nations cease for five minutes on Feb.
17. 1915, and that tho celebration be
formally initiated tn this manner.
Other Subjects for consideration at
the projected conference will be th-'
erection of monuments and the joint
final ceremonies which ls lt proposed
to hold In San Francisco.
At a meeting of the American s"b-
"Tecntlve committee, at which Mr.
.Tncoh H. Schiff. Judge Alton B. Parker, Mr. Austin G. Fox and others were

ADVOIATES REFORMS
r i
.Report on Investigation cf Publlc Service Say* Ministers Attempt Too    j
Much Small Work.
polntB of defence between the minister of finance and one of his colleagues, ln respect to appointments
to the publlc service, recruiting by
competitive examination has given
geueral satisfaction. Nothing better
has yet been suggested.
It    is of importance,    however, to
ning, adviaing and training body, with
no executive functions.
lt would be responsible under tbe
control i.t the prime minister.
Sir George in conclusion says that
of all the topics he touched tbe two
most important were:
"The relief of ministers from rou-
It    is of ^Portance     noweven ^  tine and administrative duties and the
maintain a much higher standard or  ����� , the organliation and
Ottawa, Dec. 19.���Sir George Murray, in his report on the, publlo service of Canada says that nothing Impressed him so much as the almost intolerable burden which the present
system of transacting business Imposes on ministers. They bave too
much to do and do too much, top. j
Much ot the time ot the cabinet is'
taken up ln dealing with the minor
matters.
The suggestion is made that a committee of ministers should be appointed to review the whole ot the duties
now discharged by the council and
select those which can safety be left
to Individual ministers.
In regard to appointments and promotions tn the . service, a board ' of
two or three ministers with an equal
number ot permanent officials, might
be constituted td consider them and if
approved, the recommendation would
take eftect at once.
The treasury board should be abol
Ished and Its duties discharged by
the several departments concerned or
by the appointment and pronation
board which ls suggested.
The financial questions which now
come before the treasury board could
be left to the department of finance.
Having dealt with ministers In their
collective capacity, Sir George precede to consider how thev could be
relived of some of the multifarious
duties they have to discharge as
bends of the departments. The busi
ness of a minister, he says, ls'not to
administer but to direct policy. The
administration should be lett.to hi*
subordinates, Thl* 1* the foundation
ot rut sound ��y��tem of departmental
organization,
Greater responsibility should be imposed upon deouty heads. Their duty
should be to give effect to the minister's decisions. Four or five ot the
more* important departments political
. <lenuty beads should be appointed to
Telieve ministers, not only of some of
their ilennrtmental duties but also of
roani,;'i..l. lews and negotiations with
ni' "ibers of parliament and others.
ifBrn u uemitv head Ahould eujpy the
fill confidence of hi* minister so that
hn could speak generally tn the nnme
rf the minister without specific refer
ence to him and ob otbat oases could.

Tha proposition of tbe estimates

pnrtifientr, ot finance as the present
bystefo )�� wasteful tot th* tlm* ot

The limits ct all third departments
excellence than for the third division,
are tar too wide, The limit Is pf\ 35.
For subdivision B of the" second divi
sion, the limits should be 18 and 25;
for sub-division B of the third division probably 17 and 21 would be more
appropriate than 18 and 35. For the
lower grades such as messenger, etc.,
45 should be the limit
Too many temporary clerks are employed. ThiB should be discontinued
ln every possible way. Sir Ueorge rec
ommended that the outside service
should be brought under the act of
1908 as regards the postofflce customs
and Interest and revenue, ln respect
to promotions iu tbe inside service
the commission should not Interfere.
The commission can have no personal
experience of the man or his work.
The intervention of the commission
weakens their possible first appointment.
On the other hand, he says he discovered instances of heads and deputy heads, recommending promotions not exclusively on merit as the
act directs under that grave Injustice
had been done to officers who had
been passed over.
Dealing with retirements. . Blr
George says that some Bystem securing retirement Is absolutely essential,
If the publlc service is to be maintained on a satisfactory condition. A
system of pensions ts an essential element in any by item of retirement
He argues as ono of the most lm
portant Items of otvtl service reform
that some system ot pensions, such
as that which was rescinded ln 1891.
should be re-established.
If restored, retirement sbould be optional with the officer and the department at the age ot 60 and compulsory
at 65.
In hi* opinion there should be no
deductions from salary for pension*.
The pension should be an entirely
tree gift from the state. Sl* George
refers to the absence of control from
the authority charged with the duty
of oo-ordlnatlng the organisation ot the
whole aervlce. The result was that
each department arranged the staff tn
Its own way. There ls, therefore, a
great lack ot uniformity.   .
A central department should be established dealing wtth all questions ot
Improvement of the organization and
personnel of the public service.
BREAKS    RECORD.
Member    of     Austrian     Parliament
Makes Speech Lasting 16 Hours.
Vienna, Dec. 19.���Herr Frosl has
broken all records for long speeches
in the Dual Monarchy by speaking for
16 hours from 8 o'clock Tuesday until noon yesterday, in the Lower
House of the Austrian Parliament ln
the debate on the mobilization bills.
Herr Frosl was surrounded by a squad
of Czech deputies who obtained for
him short spells of rest by organized
Interruptions and counter-Interruptions
among themselves while he was hast
lly munching chocolate or drinking
milk or lemanade.
Other deputies who were determined to maintain their ground
against the obstructionists made plans
for a prolonged sitting. Divans were
Installed In the corridors, and on them
deputies slept tn batches duiing thc
night
"Speech" is hardly the right word
to apply to Herr Frost's efforts, as he
chiefly resd newspapers or pamphlets
with a voice that was hardly audible.
He talked about many subjects which
had no conection with the debate. At
times he only gesticulated.

In contradistinction to the statement made at thc board meeting on
Thursday evening last Trustees T. J.
Trapp, Peck, Thornbur, Mrs. Gilley
and Mrs. Cross, in speaking at the
closing exercises of the F, W. Howay
school praised the work ot the children and expressed the opinion that
the ceremonies were.of great educational yalue to them. Tbey were the
means of the children learning a great
deal.
The cerenjonles tu the F. W. Howay
school held both yesterday morning
and afternoon were beautiful Indeed.
In the morning the juniors held forth
before a large gathering of parents.
A light operetta depleting scenes ol
Christmas was staged ln a striking
manner. 'Other Incidents were vividly re-enaoted while good old Santa
Claus made his appearance and played
his natural part with the assistance ot
a number of stockings. During the
proceedings the children sang a selected charft In a charming manner.
The Mljses Wilson, Bradley, Godson.
Winter and Street were responsible
for the training.
: A somewhat similar program wns
put on in the afternoon by the intermediate and senior classes. The singing was conducted by Mr. F. T. C.
Wlckett, who hast accomplished a
great deal since he became a member
of the Westminster i school staff. A
number of special choruses were applauded heartily by the parents nnd
many words of appreciation were
heard. The program consisted of
Christmas musical selections by Miss
Christonlierson's class, tamborine antl
wand drills by Mlss Davidson's clas*
and a Japanese frolfc by Miss Gray's
class.
A delightful duet wns given by Con-
t'lnce ltamm and Dnlcie Curry and
solos were contributed by Carlie Kennedy and Dorothy l.ee. Following
the program short speeches were
made by the trusteps present In whicii
i the work ot the children and the ef
forts of the teachers received merited
commendatibn.
Tbe closing everoises of the John
Robson school were also held yesterday morning with a program of songs
and recitations. A good number of
parents attended and the children and
teachers were commended for the excellent standards set.

Are You
Starting
Your Sons Along the Right Road?
Many fathers regret seeing their sons idling away their
wages. They know it is the sure way to ruin, but are
at a loss to know how to direct it otherwise. Example
and precept are strong but still the lure of pool-rooms,
theatres, and, in many cases, the bar-room, is so strong
that it wins out.
Let us help you to solve this question. We have talked
to many young fellows of late and we get the same
answer, viz., "I cannot make the first cash payment but
could easily save the monthly payments."
Fathers! we ask you if it would not be a splendid
Christmas present for your son if you were to make the
first payment on a lot for him. It would give your son a
chance to save money and at the same time it gives you
an easy conscience to feel that you have started your
�� sons along a smoother road than you yourself have travelled. Our lots are all cleared and graded, and face on
12th Street car line, just two blocks above the Orphanage.
Houses are being built and we will give you a written
guarantee that a house will be erected on hoth sides of
his lot. That will surely increase its value and give him
a good reason for working hard to pay up.
Fathers! give it a try. We will help you to start your
boy right. \
If you are paying rent we would like to build you a
home on easy payments, $25 monthly.
