ing prosperity, I sincerely hope It
may be. The vote for Mr. Roosevel-
md Air. Debs, Socialistic candidate,
is a warning that the propaganda, in
favor of fundamental changes in our
constitutional representative government has formidable support. I shall
always stay a Republican in politics."
President Taft stated that he had
ileolded to return to Cincinnati and to
follow his law practice.
He wired the following message to
the president-elect:
"Cordial congratulations on your
election. My best wishes towards a
successful administration.
"(Signed) W. H. Taft."
Wilson's Thanks.
Princeton, N. J., Nov. 5.���Responding to a telegram from the Democratic national chairman, asserting
that Governor Wilson unquestionably
was elected, tbe Democratic candidate
sent a despatch to Mr. McCombs as
"1 deeply appreciate your telegram
and wish to extend to you, and the
.Members of the campaign committee,
my warm congratulations on the part
you have played In tbe organization
ind conduct of a campaign fought
out upon essential issues.
"A great cause has triumphed.
Every Temocrat, every true Progressive, of whatever alliance, must now
lend his full force and enthusiasm to
the fulfillment of the people's hope,
the establishment of the people's
right, so that judgment and peac��
may go hand in hand."
This was Governor Wilson's first
utterance of a public character following his acceptance of the repcrt3
that he had been elected.

Starters Probable.
Edmonds, Nov. 5.���A new feature In
ihe fast approaching municipal elec
tiou in Burnaby was brought out this
evening when It became known on excellent authority that Mr. B. G.
Walker, president of the Burnaby
board of trade, was a likely candidate
for the reeveship.
Up to the present time Mr. Walker
has made no reference whatever as
to allowing his name to be placed on
the election forms In the capacity of
candidate for reeve, but a movement
is on foot to nominate the well known
resident of Edmonds whether he is
willing or no.
As president of the board of trade,
Mr. Walker has been Interested In the
settlement of the franchise question,
both as a member of the joint transportation committee of Greater Van
couver and as president of the board
of trade, but in tbo recent events
which have taken place with regard
to the B. C. E. R. be has yet to come
out with a statement.
If Mr. Walker allows his name to
be presented, this will meau at least
two candidates for the reeveship of
Burnaby and there ts a strong prob
ability of one or more persons also
seeking the honor. Several weeks
have to elapse before the nominations
close and the people of North burnaby
and East Burnaby are said to be
grooming candidatcs for the highest
'ionor of municipal politics.
Councillor McGregor haB come out
Ratfooted for the resubmission of iho
franchise by-law. North Burnaby wil'
support him if they have uo candidato
to place in the field.
Where does Edmonds and East Bur
naby come in ? A mass meeting w'V
he held in Moreton hall on Friday
evening when the franchise will be
'.'ne chief topic of discussion. Ther-1

developments. Burnaby politics ara

of discussing the formation of s
Merchants Protective association.
Mr. E. C. Traves being elected
chairman and Mr. T. I\ Phillips seere
tury, the meeting was called to ordei

and form an association to help tht
merchants of the city to avoid the
getting of poor accounts on thei:
books, to help the merchants in the
collection of bad accounts, and foi
any other purpose that would be for
the benefit of both merchants and citi
lt was agreed b.v those present tba'

tlon for the above purposes and thai
the secretary forward notices to all
the merchants of the city requesting
them to be present at the next meet
ing, to be held in the same place on
Wednesday evening, November 13.
At this next meeting it is expected
that the association will be properly
formed and that a secretary-treasurer
to carry on the work will be elected.
Applications for this position should
be sent in to the acting secretary at

brought before the meeting.

New Vork. Nov. 5.
of the United Statea by ono of th��
largest voles ever polled and also
one of tbe largest landslides ever
recorded In the history of American
politics, elected Governor Woodrow
Wilson, of New Jersey, president of
the American republic.
It  was  one of the  most crushing
blows that one of the two great polltl-
haa ever received, and up
plurality bave decided tn favor of Mr
Wilson and the Democratic party:
Like all good citizens I accept the re

London, Nov. ��.���If as reported, the
Bulgarian attack on the Tchalaja
forts has already begun, no details
have yet been received. Doubtless the
Turks may be fighting small engage
ments with a view to delaying the
Bulgarian advance, but it is hardl>
likely that the Bulgarian army ha*
sufficiently recovered, after recen-
exertions, to undertake a sustained
battle. The Bulgarians are now u
long distance from their base of sup
plies and the four days' battle mus
have necessitated a renewal of the
supplies of food and ammunition.
The fact that the Servian army hat
been called to the aid of the Bulgarians is held by some to indicate that
the Bulgarians realize that It will be
no easy task to reduce Constantinople

Thirteen to Come.
Thirteen votes are yet to be counted, these being New Hampshire, 4;
Idaho, 4; and South Dakota, 6. In all
there are 531 electoral votes. Pennsylvania, which has been given to Roosevelt, Is still doubtful, but with bright
prospects of a Progressive success.
Thus ends one of the most bitter
and spirited political campaigns that
has been waged in America since the
time of Lincoln and Douglas, In   the
Civil War days.   It has demonstrated j
that the populace either    wanted    a I
Democrat or a Radical Republican In |
the White House, and according    to |
many the old rock-ribbed machine of
Republicanism has died a death from
which  tliere will  be no resurrection.
William H. Taft, the president of the
United States and a candidate for reelection, received a matter of eleven
votes only in the electoral college.
Results  Undoubted.
Tbere are in all four states In th'
doubtful column with equal chances
to each candidate, but the ultimate
' result wlll not affect either of thn
three nominees. Wilson Is tbe next
president of the republic, with Roosevelt a bad second, while Taft can be
placed In the "also ran" class.
Reports from all over the country
Indicate that tbe Democrats stood
shoulder to shoulder for Wilson and
polled a solid Democratic vote. Fears
of Roosevelt being elected no doubt
made many Republicans staunch supporters of Taft vote for. Wilson also,
thus leaving tke president In the
Returns from Stites.
While tho returns trom the different
states as to the state elections are
������yet meagre, all indications point to
the Democratic tlokets being dragged
through In tbe landslide.
' Congress Is sure to be Democratic,
while the election of United Statea
senatora In many of tbe states wlll
no doubt mean the overthrow or the
Republican majority, thus giving Wilson a clear fleld to pursue his policies.
Taft Republican Always.
Cincinnati, O., Nov. 6.���The following statement was made by President
Taft late this evening after the returns showed that Wilson bad been
elected by a large majority. ���
"Returns ensure the election of
Governor Wilson to the presidency.
This means a ehanee of economical
policy In reference to tbe tariff. If
this change can be made without halt-

New York Flopped.
New York, Nov. 5.���Woodrow Wilson was the choice of the state of
New York for president by a plurality
estimated at midnight at about 200,-
000 from returns received from nearly
every election district In the greater
elty of New York and from all except
r-00 of the 3903 districts outside of
New York City.
President Taft led Colonel Roosevelt by about 75,000 votes.
Comtressman William 8ulzer was

Traffic at Fort William, However, Is
Practically at Standstill���Elevator
Men Go Out.
Fort William, Ont., Nov. 5.���The
staff of the Dominion grain inspection
office here went out on strike today,
taking advantage of the strike of the
C, P. R. employees. The strike did
not last long,, however, as the grain
commissioners, when seen by a deputation, stated that they .would do all in
their power to have the request of the
men satisfied.
The men want a six-day week, get-
tine a day off If Sunday work Is necessary.
Had the men remained out every
elevator would have had to close down
and the grain traiffc would have heen
completely tied up at this vital point.
The men state that they will give the
commission a month to accede to their

Montreal Conditions.
Montrea], Nov. 5- Mr. D. McNicoll,
vice-president of the C. P. R., when
asked today about the strike, said that,
a few misguided employees, members
of an impossible organization, had
gone on Btrike at Ottawa and a few
other points of the line, and that several of the vacancies thus created
were already filled, and he anticipated
no trouble in filling the balance.
The new order contemplates embracing every employee from the highest to the lowest in the company not
a member of some organization or another. It so far embraces 36 different
classes of the employees, with evidence of more to follow. Men in confidential or governing positions are being solicited as members, and even
watchmen, policemen, etc., are being
asked to join.
"I am sorry for the old employees;
they have no reason to go on strike
as our men are paid better wages than
on other railways, and anyone with a
real grievance can always get It adjusted." said Mr. McNicoll.
"The heads of the departments hav3
instructions to see tn the welfare of
the unorganized laborer and I am sure
that, from the increases, continually
advanced, they are doing so."
The officials point to the refusal of
the Hon. Mr. Crothers. Minister or
Labor, to grant the union concerned
a board of conciliation as all the justification required for the company'���>
refusal to deal with the union. All
the unions the company recognizes
consist of a well-defined sphere of railway activity, and it is possible to lay
down schedules to be generally applied. In this instance, everybody Is
taken in from confidential employees
to common laborers, and it is Impossible to deal with the men as a whole.
According to the officials at Wind
sor street, none had gone out at Montreal or Quebec. Arrangements are.

with the main Idea of the design for
an improved British stamp in the sue-'
cessful adaptation of the Royal Standard as a frame device, and an excellent portrait of King George has been
embodied In the stamp design.
This collector's stamp, with a temporarily modified Inscription, is to bo
shown at the International Stamp Exhibition, which was held at the Royal
Horticultural Hall, provides the public
an opportunty to compare the government's latest attempt and that which
has been obtained by philatelic and
���technical experience.
Compared with the first King George
stamp, the new one issued by the Post
Office Is finer and of a lighter scarlet.
More space is provided for the head of
the King, which Is, therefore, larger,
and is in profile instead of three-quarter.
The figure "I" is in eaph of the lower corners, so that the words "One
Penny" do not extend fully across the
Perhaps the change that ls most artistic is the substitution of the heavy
wreath around the King's head by a
lighter and neater border, with laurel
leaves bordering only the lower half.
The wordB "Postage Revenue" run
alongside the crown in a plain straight
line instead of in scroll work.
The control mark of the new one
penny stamp Is "C 12." The designer
Is Mr. Bertram Mackennal.
A new three-penny stamp, with portrait of Kng George after the coinage
portrait, has also been issued. It if
in the same design as the recently Is
sued two-penny stamp, and is printed
in violet. A "control" appears on this
stamp, "A 12." This is the first t'me
the control has appeared on any value
higher than one penny.

of the opportunity to hold a naval
conference there, to which representatives from Australia and New Zealand should be invited, forthe purpose

This, It is thought, would likely
prove agreeable to the Commonwealth,
though the Minister of Defence has
not yet committed himself. Should
the minister go, It Is hoped that the

Interest Centres on Saturday's Meeting��� Dldier Pitre May Wear
Royals' Colors.
Western hockey magnates nnd followers of the winter sport are waiting
anxiously for the coming of Saturday
when the National Hockey association
will decide whether Samuel Lltchen-
heln, the hockey, lacrosse and baseball magnate of the East, will be the
whole thing ln hockey or whether support wlll be accorded the Patrick
It will be a close race In the voting,
but latest reports from the East indicate the fears entertained by some of
the club owners who are trembling
lest Patrick siiould retaliate and boost
hls monetary otters to players bo high
as to take the cream of the Eastern
men and thus break up the N. II. A.
Such a move is pouBlble, and according to Frank Patrick it Ib altogether
probable if the N. H. A. do not come
half way towards hts suggestions.
The hockey situation In Canada is
fast declining to the same plane aa
that upon which the lacroBse game ia,
and unless the magnates wake up and
take notice tbat the publlc are to bo
considered it will mean a heavy drain
on their pocket books before the winter sport recovers its former position.
Newsy Lalonde, the well known lacrosse player,"will probably play for
the Canadiens in Montreal this coming winter, Lalonde has been traded
by the Patricks for Dldier Pitre, the
famous French-Canadian player. While
Lalonde Is popular with the fans on
the ice, Pitre holds a place on the
map as being the fastest shot ln the
game today and once he eludes his
check the goaltender has little chanc?
in stopping the shots.
Just where he will play has yet to
be given out, although he may be seen
on the Royals, taking the place of
Ernie Johnson,  the contract jumper.
and high salaries do not mean anything."
It Is unnecessary to give the signature, for who, other than our old Blde-
klck, Samuel Llchtensteln, would-ba
baaeball and. hockey lmpresaarlo,
would send such a. wire. In the first
place, Sammy evidently overlooked
the fact that McDonald Is a coast boy,
whose parents reside here. In the second he did not name an offer, merely
sounding MacDonald. The collect wire
that MacDonald telegraphed back Informed the Wanderers owner that he
i MacDonald) had already signed to
play on the Coast. Refusing to take
the hint, and forgetting that there are
yet a few hockey players who recognize something more than money tn
professional sport, Llchtensteln again
wired the Coast star, this time offer
ing a bunch of money.
It is time the Nf. H. A. muzzled
Llchtensteln, a man who seems to b.-
trying to ruin all that Ib praiseworthy
In professional sport. Should thev fail
to do so, they will be lowering them
selves to a standard never before

Dealing with the subject which is
occupying the serious consideration of
all football legislators at the present
time, namely, "should the International federation have control of the lawa
of football?" an English writer remarks a3 follows:
"If the countries of the continent
desire to alter the laws of the gam?
there is no reason why they should
not please themselves. But It is jusi
as well for them to know���that th��.
Football Association accepts the rules
of the International Board of Great
Britain and that all recognized organizations and clubs play under thesn
laws. All international matches hav <
been decided under these laws ��� and
England, per Be, could not agree to
accept any other laws without Scotland. Ireland and Wales agreeing to
do the same. Nor could Britain, the
motherland of the game, be expected
to abrogate her position."
Jacky Robertson, who played several times for Scotland against England,
once epitomized him. "When you are

hink he was eight feet." said Jacky.

1 A Happy Blunder
���      By   CLARISSA   MACKIE     ���
I ��i"i"i ���i"i"i"i"f ���i"ffi"fi"fi"i-i'nA
All tbe men tn tbe offlce were interested In Jim Pendleton's new house
at Villa Heights. On the first of tbe
month Jim would rease to be a "cliff
dweller" and would get right down to
the business of sprinting for his train
each morning, for Villa Heights was
only twenty minutes from his ofllce���lf
he caught the 8:10. otherwise It was
an hour and thirteen minutes.
The morning he announced thnt they
xrere all settled nnd ready for visitors
tie slammed down on Ills desk a goodly
pile of seed catalogues aud grinned
"Here's where the fun comes In. fellows." he decliired. "I'm going to hnve
a garden In the spring, and when 1
have you chnps down there to ent the
green corn I hnve raised or cut one of
my nice Juicy wuter melons, after
you've tnsted m.v crops, you'll all be
buying plots at Villa Heights."
"Don't tell ns any more." pleaded
Case. "You'll have us all married and
moving before Faster."
"Hope you wlll. When nre you coming down?"
The dny wns settled upon after a
little discussion, nod the nine fellow
clerks of Jim Pendleton |iul their he:ids
together nnd plillilied io tnke with tbem
appropriate gifts to signify their pleasure nnd approval of the new abode
nnd as a testimonial of the esteem In
which they held their nssociaie.
It felt ution n Thursday and the Inst
iwords of Jim Peudletou when he left
tbe offlce that night of tbe house
warming, were uttered as a warning
to the dilatory ones. "Heniember,
trains wait for no man-that's the flrst
admonition lu the 'Commuters' Catechism." Imt If you mlss the 703 you
cun take tbe 9:10.    You'll  know  the
house. It's the second from the station and It will lie well lighted up tonight Beth said she would give yon a
royal welcome."
The nine bouse wnrmers missed the
7:03, as a matter of course All of
tbem reached the stu tlon four minutes
past 7. and during n tedious wait they
Indulged In naps, for as Hilly I.eminick
eald: "We might as well put In all
the winks we csn���If we mlss the 12
*oinot hi nc we wlll hnve to wnlk home.
1 wouldn't dream of asking Jimmy to
put the whole nine of im up for tbe
At hnlf pnst 9 they left the train at
Villa Heights nnd struck the cool autumn nli wilh n pleasant sense of freedom In the sparsely settled community.
Tbey were merely a pnvel of hoys anyway and played leapfrog all the way
down to the tlrst puzzling corner of
the street thai ran down from lhe station.
"Second house from the station nnd
all lighted up." announced Hilly Lent-
mhk ns ihey passed a modest, m/hef
Old fashioned cottage and stopped he��
fore it modern tiouse tlmt the moonlight revealed to be of stucco Willi a
tiled roof. Kvery window whs an
Oblong of friendly light and bespoke
a welcome for the Invading Louse
warmers. Lace curtains veiled ihe In-
terlot of the rooms, but at an upper
window, wliese a white shade was
drawn, a shadow crossed and recrossed.
"Hope they haven't given us up,"
muttered Case as they pnssed 111 single
fle up the concrete walk mid tiptoed
up the steps to the piazza.
"Hardly, when he named the 9:10 ns
an altvrnntlve. Shall we ring hlm up
���ot sing him up?" Billy Letntnli-k. the
, prnctlcnl Joker of the office, turned and
faced bbl companions with raised eyebrows.
"Scare him up." decided Hob Onklcy.
As he spoke he turned the knob of the
front door, ft yielded easily, and aft-
I er nn Instant's hesitation he removed
bis hnt and tiptoed softly Inside, followed by bis eight companions In various stages of disapproval, compliance,
uneasiness and fun loving mischief and
tbe idea of getting a rise out of old
Jimmy   Pendleton.
The pleasant homelike rooms seemed
Quite deserted, althougtt'thtra appear-
aA a certain air of expectation about
the honse. Flowers were grouped bere
and there, a card tuble was placed near
an electric drop light and nn open
plnno bore a sheet of music. Overhead
wns the sound of a light footstep passing back and forth.
"I feel pretty mean." acknowledged
Case after a moment or two of consideration.   "We"-
"Too late now," admonished Billy
cheerfully. "Mrs Jimmy is coming
dowu now. 1 Bee a pink gown ln tbe
offing. Only one thing to do���line up
Hnd give 'nt tbnt song Oakley composed
one day when he was sick."
The  nine  formed  a   wavering  line,
their eighteen patent leather shod toes
pointed toward the stairs.   They stood
stiffly  and  roared   the  doggeral  song
thnt   Bob  Oakley   Iind  composed  and
dedicated to .llm Pendleton:
Hello, Jimmy Pendleton
And Mrs. Jimmy loo!
Here's to your lioise warmlngl
Pray bid us welcome���do-
Kor we are Ihe merry
Houae warmers���
The merry house warmers suddenly
stilled Into n ghastly silence. All the
Jovial laughter died from tlieir merry
eyes and their patent leather toes turn
ed us If In tllght. for there on tbe stairs
whs a tall, stalely young woman,
gowned In pink, wttb Mashing black
eyes and a very pale face. In one outstretched hnnd sbe beld a greumlug
revolver pointed straight at Billy Letn-
mlck's left ear.
"Stop, or I'll bave to flre!" sbe said
The nine stared at tbe shaking revolver with fascinated eyes. There
was every reason to believe tbat It
might go off without intent on the part
of the scared young womnn. Frank
Case was the first to Sud bis voice.
"Mr. Pendleton expected ua," be
vouchsafed sheepishly.
Her eyebrows went up. "Mr. Pen
"He said the secoud house from the
station. We were Invited to n bouse
warming. He bas recently removed to
Villa Heights from the city. Isn't-
isn't tbis bis bouse'/"
"Ob!" Tbe revolver wns swiftly lowered, and tbe nine shuffled tbeir toes
relleredly. The pthk gown came down
several steps nud looked nt tbem wttb
a gracious smile. "You have made a
mistake, gentlemen." she said pleas
antly. "Mr. Pendleton's house is the
next one to tbis. (be third bouse. I
am afraid he did not count In the old
fashioned cottage on the corner of the
street when de gave you directions."
"I hope you wlll pardon our Intrusion. I���we don't know how to a polo
glza It was an Idiotic thing to do anyway unless we were positive about the
house." said Frank Case wltb n dark
frown at B.lly Lemmlck. who bad been
the leader of this Invasion.
The nine merry house warmers apologized  singly and  In  chorus when tiie
girl   Interrupted   them   with   a   pretty
1 gesture.
I     "Please Jm't apologize,    lf yon only
I knew bow nice lt seems to hear voices

J ed In here a few weeks ago from the
wesl. nnd ns we are strangers we have
been thrown entirely upon our own resources, nnd Its horribly lonely.   So the
sound   of   lusty   singing   startled   me
pleasantly   at   ttrst.   for   1   am  a   Mrs
Jimmy, too���Mrs. Jimmy Cornell���and
bere comes my  husband."    Rhe cnme
down the remaining stairs Into the hall
Just as the front door opened quickly
nnd a tall young man entered.
Mrs Jimmy Cornell came forward
nnd told her husband nil about It. and
tbere were several moments of hearty
laughter at the expense of the house
warmers, as they called themselves
Then Mr. Cornell suddenly ceased his
"I'm sorry, gentlemen, bnt I'm
afraid you're doomed to disappointment tonight, after all. When I went
out half an hour ago Pendleton and
bis wifp were coming along, hurrying
to catch a train Into town. Seems
thnt Mrs Pendleton's father hnd been
token.suddenly III nnd tbey had been
sent for. I remember now that they
snld something about expecting
friends, bnt that thev hnd left word
witb the maid to explain the situation"
"We will try again another night and
be pretty sure thnt we get lite right
house." snld Frank Cnse as lie led his
party toward the door.
Mrs Cornell and her hushnnd ex
changed n glance, and then the laller
spoke and arrested their departure
"tientlemeii. If yoil'H excuse the nn
conventionality of the Invitation, as
we are comparatively strangers to yon.
Mrs. Cornell and I would enjoy har
Ing yon spend the remainder of the
yvenlng with us und give us a house

The   nine   nccepted   without   an   Instant's  hesitation,  and  at   Billy   Lem
mlck's   reipiest   the   host   and   hostess
stood on the stairs while the nine lined
up again and roared the doggerel song

he really means is that he does not publish

we have received nt the opening of our new house furnishing store, corner
Twelfth street and Sixth avenue, and beg to announce that our lines are
complete and more goods on the way. and as our store Is hardly large
enough to accommodate our business we are compelled to sell about as fast
as the goods come; In order to do so, we are giving tickets to every purchaser to the amount of $1.00, that is for every $1.00 worth sold a ticket
goes with the purchase. This ls open to everybody; no limit whatever, If
you buy $1.00 worth you get one ticket and lf you buy $100.00 worth you
can draw one hundred tickets and so on. We will give away at least twenty
prizes, a list of which will be published later.
We can sell cheaper than anybody else because our rent Is small and
we pay no salaries at all, as we do all the work ourselves and we adhere
strictly to the pollcy of small profits and quick returns.
Hotels, restaurants and boarding houses are respectfully Invited to Inspect our line of Royal Ironstone China, the best ^are on the market to

Of all the attractions of the past decade, none is more popular with the
theatre-going public than that quaint
and always welcome, pretty domestic
comedy, "The Missouri Girl."    Its author and    manager,    Mr.    Fred    Raymond, feels justly  proud   of    Its    unbounded success as a work of dramatic art, years of popular favor and wonderful drawing powers.
lt is a faithful picture of American
country life, with a healthful and invigorating atmosphere. In the construction of fhis truly successful play
Mr. Raymond has given to the American stage two character delineations,
'Zeko" and "Daisy," which stand

ty which characterizes those two ex-
ruciatingly funny creations; but the
play has also its serious side of life,
vhich brings into action an exceptionally strong company of artists.
"The Missouri Girl" is remarkable
for the attention which is given to the
details in the elaborate settings and

ealistic elTect. During the action cf
the play novel musical numbers,
iongs and dances are introduced. It
