it was a. fact that in 1900 the very

When   Guard   was Killed    U. 8.
porter Had Close Call, But
Finally Escaped.
EI Paso. Texas, Feb. 1.���Fifteen
persons, including two Americans, ono
a boy ot 12, are dead today as-the re
���nit of mutiny in the Mexican federal
garrison at Juares, across tbe river
from bete. The Fourth 'United States
cavalry, commanded by Colonel Edgar
t. Steever, is guarding American interests on the border. Men, women
and children, both American and
Mexican, are fleeing into El Paso.
Four troops of American cavalry
from Fort Bliss are guarding the
American side of the Rio Grande and
assisting refugees across the border
from the Mexican town. There havo
been no violations of neutrality as
yet, and all bridges are today being
carefully guarded.
Revolt broke out in the garrison
���pon the arrival from Chihunhua of
newspapers stating that General Pas-
eual Orozco, who was one of the most
conspicuous revolutionary figures in
the recent Maderlsta movement, had
resigned, because of tbe discbarge of
100 men in the Juarez garrison.
Mutineers captuied their commander and threw him into prison
shortly after sundown last night.
Then they opened fire upon the loyal
federals, beginning a conflict .which
waged about  the  government  house
January  Stamp  Calea  Show    Thirty
Par Cent Increase Over Laat Year
���Money Orders Multiply.
"Money order sales are something
phenomenal, and stamp sales show a
wonderful increase over last year. I
expected them to fall off after the
Christmas rush was over, but tbe big
business ha. kept right on." Thus
.poke the postmaster of New Westminster yesterday, and certainly the
returns of tbe post office are very
satisfactory and form an eloquent and
reliable gulJa to the growing amount
of business that"'is being handled in
this city.
During January the stamp sales
amounted to $3500 against but $2700
ln the same month last year, showing
an increase of $800, or of nearly 30
per cent. The December sales reached
the big figure of $5000, which compares with between $3800 and $3900
for the same month of 1910. Comparative figures of the money order sales
are not yet available, but it ls safe
to take the stamp sales as a barometer of the increase in business in
every other department. A noticable
feature is that the incoming business
increases faster then the out-going,
and is heavier all the time. This ls
partly due to the fact that the New
Westminster office distribute? the
mail for the Fraser valley district.

was from year to year uo great areas
were taken up and as a matter ot
fact very little was done In the way
of timber alienation for speculative
purposes. But taking it now the re
verse would be found to be the case.
The i rovluce was not ln tbe same
position because lt would be found
that the small operators must go to
the largo speculators ��� ln order to get
timber cut. The minister had referred
to these speculators as Investors. On
the opposition of the House the prac
tice was to call them speculators.
Tbey were allowed ln 1995 under a
special license for twenty-one yeara

tbe supposed attitude of Lord and

"This is not the time for honeyed

members of the church to go back on
tbeir allegiance to the cnown. lt i.
true several weak-minded men have
succumbed to the blandishments
showered upon them, but these men
' represent nobody but themselves. I'm
sorry the viceregal influence waB not

to persuade Englishmen to forget tbe
glorious heritage handed down to
them by their . forefathers. Thank

could stay over London for more
than ten hours or over Paris for
twenty hours, during light winds. ..
Unlike warships on water, airships
can change their armament to suit

distances they must travel to reach
the enemy, the kind and weight of
their armament depending on the
general conditioni ot the weather. If

Captain Blakeney Recalls Voyage of
Flrat Stea.i.er on Pacific.
London, Eng., Feb. 1.���Dipping deep
Into memory's lucky bag, the tact is
extracted that the history of Vancouver fs closely associated with a little
vessel���the Beaver���tbe first ship uader her own steam to plough the vast
waters of the Paciflc. In the Narrows, west of. Brockton Point, the
Beaver remained fast on the rocks
for many years, then broke up and
disappeared, but not before innumerable relics were obtained. That a
man who served on the Beaver was
living until a few days ago hardly
seems possible, but suoh is a fact. By
the death of Captain William Blakeney, R. N., which took place at Bath,
there passed away a great figure in
the annals of the British navy.
Captain Blakeney was the oldest officer in the British navy and u a boy
���aw the launching of the Beaver,
whicb took place ln the presence of
King William IV. In 1834. Having
aeen the vessel launched, Blakeney,
although still a boy, Joined her as a
middy and wns one of the first few
to cross to America by steam. In the
course of time CapUln Blakeney entered the navy, and, curiously enough,
wu employed on the Beaver, whicb
was purchased by the government, in
surveying the coast of British Colombia for the Imperial government before Queen Victoria came to tbe
throne, captain Blakeney never lost
his interest in the navy or ln British
Col umuia, in the development of
which he assisted by becoming interested in many projects financially.
Earl   Grey and Y. M. C. A.
The London Y. M. C. A. ls trying to
raise il 100,000 in a few years. Earl
Grey, late governor-general of Canada, was present in London when a
luncheon was beld to Inaugurate the
movement. Called upon to speak he
said that he was heartily in sympathy
with the movement. If people in London realized what it meant be felt
sine they would go for a million. He
happened to be in Ottawa wben Mr.
Waid oiganized a fortnight's campaign there. Unfortunately, it was
during tbe blackest financial week,
when it was extremely difficult to get
cheques cashed into metal currency.
In si ite of that a population of 80,000
in Ottawa contributed ��40,000 in that
fortnight, or an average of 10s per
head of the population. Only recently in Montreal-In a live days' rally���
the shortness ot those campaigns was
one cause of ��� their efficiency���they
collected over ��300,000 for the university requirements of their young
i he l.r.ew there were some who bettered Hut the Y. M, C. A. wtS nothing more than an evangelical association, chieily remarkable Ior the texts
upon the walls. He had been to several Y. M. C. A.'s and he had never
seen texts in the roams of the clubs.
It was nothing more than a young
men's club and it was of the greatest
posslole service to the young men in
all the towns where it WU established. Last winter he visited the V. M.
C. A. at Ottawa.
Tbere he found rules dealing with
tbe training of the young men in order ta enable them to compete triumphantly over the course ul Henley tlie
following summer. He'hoped tbey
would be able to organize anjnterna-
tional competition in gymnastic excellence, the competitors to come from

wishing to take up oversea life, by
organizing them into groups according to the country they wish to go to
and tbe class of farming tbey desire
to undertake. Each group will be

So many epigrammatic squibs were

Farrlngdon street, says the Daily vanced this gem of metaphor. "Sup-
News, London, that even the intellec- pose we ail had wooden legs and were

who  filled  the room  mnst'have'  felt  there was a rule that we should tak<;
rather like children al Brock's benefit. Not knowing quite whether to be
frightenod or amused they compromised the matter, and clapped.
Mr. George Bernard Shaw and Mr.
Gilbert K. Chesterton, possibly the
two cleverest dialecticians in England, were the protagonists, and Mr.
illlaire Belloc kept the ring, to use a
���phrase in his own manner. The proposition which Mr. Shaw set himself
to. uphold was, "That a Democrat,
who is not also a Socialist, Is no Gentleman."
Unluckily^-there- -was a disagreement from the.flrat about the meaning of the proposition, and as the debate proceeded the tangle grew. Mr.
Belloc confessed that it was a subject which -to'him meant nothing.
Whether Mr. Shaw��� meant to argue
that Mr. Chesterton" was or could not
be a Socialist, or a gentleman, or both
together, or neither at onoe, or
whether it was the other way about,
he was at a loss to know.
After this happy start Mr. Shaw
stepped briskly forward, flung his
chest out, directed his beard towards
I our legs every night into the cloak-
' room and get tickets for thera. That,
would prevent a great deal of wrongdoing of a certain kind. There is no
doubt that one man could not sterfl
another man's wooden leg, or pawn
his own, or make a corner in wooden
legs. Hut it is not true that such a
process would enable the wooden-legged people in thc hospital to govern
the hospital. It is not true that thero
would be any kind of advance in their
power of protest against abuses."
When Mr. Shaw returned to the
charge his flrst care was to explain
that in the true Socialist state every
citizen would receive from the moment
of birth "Its modest dividend of the
nation's wealth."
Mr. Chesterton's manner when he
rose a second time was especially benignant.
"Your proposals," he observed, "for
detaching the child altogether from
the support of Its parents are so manifestly blasphemous against everything we call human nature fiat I
will not discuss them. You will be so
detestable in the eyes of mankind lf

The Hindu question gave rise to an
animated and prolonged discussion at
the meeting of the Toronto Ministe'
rial Association last week.
On the motion of Rev. Dr. R. N��
Burns, seconded by the Rev. H. A.
MacPherson, the meeting unanimously decided, "That in view of statements made by members of the committee which presented the case of
the Sikhs to this association, setting
forth a change In the situation, the
matter be indefinitely laid upon the
table." '
All of which was not done without
considerable uproar, says the Toronto Telegram.
"It must be seen that nothing gets
in tbe papers. Telephone to the papers
and ask that it be kept out," suggested one reverend gentleman, but which
reporters were excluded the exclusion
act didn't work well.
i The Ministerial Association was
not a unit by any means.
Dr. Wilkie pleaded for the admittance cf tbe Hindus' wives, anl asked
If the labor perty of this country,
210,000 in all; was to antagonize 350,-
000,000 BrltWh subjects. He told how

into an anti-British passion because
of the Exclusion Act of Australia, the

There are many ways of banting tbe

exciting and others as tame aa target

! Is by means of bounds, and all over

| sportsmen wbo bunt the animal tn tbla
fashion.   Wolvee are also taken ln pitfalls and shot, while still another way
Is to drive ln a slelgb through tbe for-
ent tn time of hard frost, when tbe
wolves are beld wltb hunger.   At tbe
back of the slelgb one or more sportsmen lie snugly under tbeir fur rugs
with their rifles ready.   A young pig la
curried ln tbe sleigh, and ita crlea soon
reach the ears of tbe larking wolves,
wbo cannot resist following tbe slelgb
snd sre speedily shot
One of tbe most picturesque ways of
bunting the wolf, perhaps, ts tbat
whicb one mny see ln tbe west of Asia
on the bleak Kirghiz steppes. Tbe Tar-
tar tribes are wonderful horsemen, and
they ride after tbe wolf ln very large
parties. Not only are dogs used to
overtake tbe quarry, but because a
fleet wolf may get away from tbem,
eaglee nre used, being trained to help
the hunter In very much tbe aame
manner ns falcons In olden times. Tbe
grest bird sits on tbe hunter's wrist
untll It is let loose. Then It soars Into
���he ulr. sails after tbe quarry and
swoops down upon tt Its duty Is not
to kill, but to "bother" tbe wolf by
flapping Its wings ln Its face and driving Its sharp cIiiwh Into tbe animal's
hack. Such hunting makes capital
