"I think that the council is to
be congratulated upon the result of today's polling, lt has
received the support of the citizens ln the program which it
has outlined for the progress
of this city. An excellent start
has been made in having the
whole of the by-laws successfully carry, and lt now remains
for the city council to see to
it that the city gets good v.^ilue
for the Bums whicli the people
have so generously passed."
Thus spoke Acting Mayor Gray
in the council immediately
after the announcement that
the citizens of Westminster
had endorsed the by-laws.
"We have to thank the ratepayers," he continued, "for
their support at the polls, some
of (hem for the autos placed at
the disposal of those who wished to vote. We have also to
think the'Progress club for Its
active propoganda, and the
newspapers for tho support
which they have so ably
clven."

Speaking on behalf of the Progress

president, exp'essed, when Interview-

'ihe greatest o^po-iiion was experlei.c
ed iu the weet end, but in every <-...se
theie was a majority there for th; jy-
luvvs although for the parks and itt-
Iiibltion by-laws not a large enougu
one to carry.
Great inteiest was taken in the voting .vesterdav. All day members o.J
tbe new Progress club were working
to bring voters to the polls. Two or
three automobiles were supplied by
private citizens nnd every energy
seemed lo be btnt towards one object,
the passing of tiio by-laws. ln ths
evening the council met, but so distracted were they until the results
were announced after lo p.m., that
they could only attend to business
with the greatest difficulty. When at
last the figures were read out and It
was seen that aU the by-laws were
safe. Mem satisfaction was expressed
"Good for Sapperton 1" exclalme.l Alderman White as the parks by-law
figures were read. "The most progressive part of tl.e city." he added smil-
in-.
And so it Is .ill over as far a3 ob-
hard work well rewarded
he sail. "But it Is ouly the begin-
iM:.4: of what the progress club will

sice whole-heartedly and this Knowledge will inspire us wilh n determination to do eveiy thing possible loi her

-Mr. Duncan aiso pointed out that
what Is perhaps th<�� biggest' by-law
vo:e ever polled in Westminster' was
ou the side of progress. "This is
very significant. No stronger evidence
ol the new spirit abroad could possibly have been obtained."
i Thut many persons agree with these
opinions might be gathered from the
countless Inquiries received over the
telephone at the Dally News ofiice
last night snd the invariable expressions of delight uttered on hearing the
result. "That's splendid." "good
work," "flue, I'm awfully gla.l." theBe
were among the exclamations that
arreted ti.e good news and it seems
that many citizens slept more peace
ably as a result of the victory.
London. April 10.���The membeiB of
the britisb cabinet put the linislung
touches today to the Home Rule bin
which I'remler ASyuith is to Introduce
in tlie House of commons tomorrow,
lhe members of the government anu
the lew .nationalist memoeis wno
have ueen taken into their confidence
uuve kepi seciet tlie details of the
measuie, but with the exception of
the clauses relating to the control of
the excise and customs and the number of Irish representatives to be retained at Westminster, the general
outlines of the bill are pretty well
known.
1 he measure Is expected to follow
closely that which was proposed by
William E. Gladstone. Among many
forecasts, that which suggests that
the imperial government retain control of the customs and excise of Ireland lor a certain number of years
alter which they should pass to the
nlsh parliament, is accepted generally
lt is certain Ireland will continue to
be represented in the HouEe of Commons at Westminster, but by fewer
members.
While the interest In Premier Asqulth's speech does not compare in
anv way with that aroused by the late
Mr. Gladstone's efforts, there will be
a full attendance of memoers and the
public galleries will be filled to
capacity. With the exception of two

ACCEPT TENDER FOR BONDS
Further  Improvement  Schemes  Foreshadowed on New Assc.sm-nt���
Deputations.
The proceedings at last night's
meeting of the city council were for
the most part of a routine nature, the
great event of the evening, to which
all were looking, being the announcement made at the close that the bylaws baJ successfully carried.
With regard to the paving of
i Twelfth street from Fifth to Tenth
avenues the engineer recommended
the adoption of the estimate of the
Hassam Paving company for the sum
of $85,700, which also Includes the
installation of sidewalks, storm sewers, etc. This bid was accepted by the
councll.
Acting Mayor Gray announced that
the tender of J. II. Stimson & Co., of
London, England, for the civic bonds
amounting to $190,000 bad been accepted. The figure two weeks ago
was quoted as 95.00. From this exchange has to be deducted, and the net
price which the city will receive is 95
which is next to the highest yet reat-

���ater in the evening the chairman iu-
tumed from a temporary absence at
the council meeting with the welcome
news that that body had decided to
grant $'Mt) towards the expenses in-

promptly given, and it was decided to
invite the council to the celebrations,
while four autos will be provided and
placed at the disposal of the aldermen
and their ladies.
Add.tlonal funds have also to be collected, and arrangements were made
aaving this in view. A publicity committee was also appointed, Mr. P. W.
Luce being nominated chairman, with
Mr. C. A. Sutherland assisting him.
These gentlemen vvill be aided by representatives of the local and Vancouver papers, and an active campaign
wlll be commenced at once. A sum of
$50 was set apart for this purpose, tl
may be noted that this ls an innovation, the object being to make known
from Chilliwack to Vancouver what is

Day.
Prizes vvill be offered for the best

and already several offices anl tradesmen have fallen into line with this

Linsn to Match China.
Quite the newest conceit ln decorative table linens nnd sets of dollies is
nn embroidered design in the pattern
and coloring of the china wltb whicli
lt is to be used. The fabric Is a heavy
linen In canvas weave, nnd tbe embroidery ls done with mercerized cottons.
The idea comes from Germany, and
tbe work Is known as Weimar embroidery. One combination consists of
a china ten set of graceful shape, with
n decoration of radial lines nnd Circles
at lhe outer end In tiny delft blue dots
Applied Ip round tablecloths, centerpieces and doilies, the design is embroidered In dots nbout the size of a
pea, producing one of the most effective decora Horn Imaginable for a comparatively small outlay. The enlarged
design on the linens allows for a conventional motif In the circles, and each
piece has a border of cluny Ince.

WESTMINSTER HAS SPOKEN.
Westminster has spoken and In
favor of progress. All the money bylaws were victorious at the polls. One
of the biggest votes ever cast, 846 In as is possible in this form. The read-
.all. baa been cast in support of a pro- ers of tho paper took to it readily
sressive policv and henceforth there  throughout the  Dominion, and  many
-will be no doubt that the citizens will
fcack up their council in all well considered plans of development. This
assurance will do more than anything
-else to enSure strong administration.
The people have now shown confidence in the council and henceforth
the council can feel confidence in the
people.
At this hour we can do no more
than record tho result and congratulate ihe voters on their enthusiastic
���endorsement of the by-laws submitted
for their approval. A special word of
commendation ls due to the Progress
Club and to every citizen that Influenced another vote besides his own.
THE WESTERN GRAIN SPOUT.
On Tuesday night the Vancouver
Hoard of Trade passed a resolution appointing a special committee of seven
to promote the best interests of the
port of Vancouver with a view to plao
ing it in a position to make a satisfactory bid for the commerce to be
developed by the opening of the
Panama canal. Vancouver has been
backward in the pnst In this reganl.
tut. apparently she Is beginning to
���wake up now. But at the best she
can do but little to improve her harbor herself. For this she is largely
dependent on the C P. R.
Westminster is in no such unfortitn
ate predicament. Antl what Is more
Westminster was alive to the Importance of harbor improvement nearly a
.year before Vancouver. This city has
already spent $lBt000 on the drawing
tip of comprehensive plans for the lm
provement of the Fraser. Negotiations
tor the carrying out of these plans are
at a forward stage. The return of
Mayor l.ee from Ottawa will probably
mean a further advancement. Westminster has her fate In her own hands.
She. has gov a start on her sister ctty
and it behoves her to keep It.
Theie are still some persons who
��3ouht whether the opening ot the
Tananiu canal vvill mean much to tho
harbors of this coast. These persons
are mainly tliose who have not. studied
ihe question carefully.
To convince doubters let us glance
at thc wheat situation alone for a
moment. Last year the Eastern grain
apout was proved too small. The railways failed to handle the crop, failed
to get it to sea before the freeze-up.
That Is a fact. Therefore some other
���outlet has to be found. Tint outlet
���will be the Pacific ports anl the
"Panama canal, lo.v can we ba sure
���of that-.' If wo li :e we can content
oursclvcj witli watching the big men.
the railway men, the grain and elevator men and notice that they all have
their eyes turned westward. If we
aro more independent and like to do
-our thinking for ourselves, we can
'reason thc matter out just as they
have done.
To begin with the opening of the
���cana) Will bring Westminster and the
Pacific ports 5501 miles, or twenty-two
���days steaming closer to Liverpool
than they are today. Kdmonton is "Ofl
miles nearer this coast than she is
to Fort William. Calgary is 616 miles
nearer, while Moose Jaw is 1311 miles
nearer the open mouth of the Fraaer
river than she is to tlie winter port, of
St. John. As railway rates are Important things tltebe figures havo their
meaning.
Today It costs 24.40 cents to ship Q
bushel or wheat lrom Calgary to
Liverpoo] ln the summer via the
Clieat Lakes; In winter it costs H4.40
via St. John. All the year round it
���costs 34 cents to scud it through Pa-
'cifir. ports and over the Tehuantepi c
.railway. When the canal Is opened
it will cost approximately only 24.40
cents to ship ihat bushel via the
iKraser river even with th0 present
railway rales in force. If these are
lowered, as is to be expected, a further reduction will take place.
These facts are incontrovertible.
They reason for themselves. Tlieir
logical conclusion Is a western grain
wpout to correspond to the eastern one.
What city will stand at the mouth
*ot that spout ? It rests wilh the cities
thcm&clves, with us to decide-. Let

"Made in Canada."
It is a Btrange sight to see a Canadian manufacturer   throwing   up   his
English hat for the "Made in Canada'
principle.    Behold him occasionally in
debate, striding on to the platform in
American   boots, tin-owing aside   his
coat of Irish   frieze and   his   French
gloves, waving ills   Scotch   tweed-encased urms, refreshing his :!ry throat
with water ftdin a Belgian glass, and
timing his impassioned plea for the
support.of home industries by a for-
eign-caiod watch.   Is this man a consistent economist or a sartorial mosaic?    His advocacy of the "Made in
Canada" (lodfiiu-.'is as convincing as
a bald-headed barbers testimonial for
n hair hestorer.     The   late   lamented
Sultan of Turkey compelled his cook
to taste each dish  in tbe royal presence.    If by any��� Right of imagination
the Canadian public may be likened to
a Siillnn. and if, by a greater flight of
the imagination, tiie Canadian manu
facturer may be likened to a cook. Is
there any  point  to the   story?���Editorial in Industrial   Canada for April.

YEAR   OF   RISING   PRICES.
Ex-
Trade Prosperity and Industrial
panslon���Keen Demand.
The Department or Labor has just
issued a continuation of its series of
reports on pi Ides In Canada in the
form of a special, report on the course
of wholesale prices throughout the
calendar year 1911. The report Is b.v
It, II. Coats. B. A., edilor of the Labor Gazette, and is based on weekly
observations of the price fluctuations
of some -01 articles selected a.~ representative of the entire field or Canadian production anl consumption. The
��� Iei is subdivided Into groups, Including grains and fodder, animals ano
meals, dairy products, tish, fruit unil
vegetables, miscellaneous groceries
textiles, hides and leather, metal and
Implements, fuel and ligh'ing, lumber,
miscellaneous building material
paints, bouse furnishings, drugs and
chemicals, furs, etc. Numerous charts
illustrate   at a glance    the vauoui
movements in these and other groups,
as well :is in moro Important single
articles, the bufis of the report being
given upto tables of ((notations and
comments on lne more important
changes shown.
The general conclusion arrived at is
that wholesale prices in Canada Uui
ing 1911 leached a higher level proba
bly than in any previous year within
the piesent generation; certainly the
highest since 1S81, and possibly since
1873. The upward trend did no! develop with streiigib during the lirst six
months of the year; from the middle
of June, however, It became pronounced and continuous, closing with Nov-
ember and December prices at the
highest level ofthe twelvemonth, Between Jan. l ti-hfl Dec. 1 the average
rise is set down us approximately ::

a point over 27 per cent higher. Compared with 1897, the lowest year in
the past generation, a rise is shown
of about 10 per cent.
Of the articles covered by the report, 124 advanced during 1911, while
ii7 leniained stationary, and only 82
showed declines. An appendix of the
report contains an analysis of retail
prices and rentals in some 18 Canadian cities throughout 1910 and 1911
based on monthly records obtained by
the department. A rise of about 5
per cent is shown to have taken place
in the past year.
The report deals at some length
with the various features of the
prices recorded for the year and circumstances attending the more Important fluctuations. In this connection tlie following statement is of interest:
"The year was one of general trade
prosperity and industrial expansion in
Canadn. The heavy immigration move-
ment, the very- pronounced activity in
railway construction and other building operations, the enlarged outputs
of manufacturing establishments, and
the increased volume ot trade, foreign
and domestic���in which fields the re-
lurns of the year uniformly in.uc.iteu
a marked advance over those of 1910���
all united in causing an exceptionally
keen demand lor materials, with resultant enhancement in prices. In
foodstuffs, at the same time, the unfavorable crop reports of the summer
and autumn months worked similar
tendencies. Grains advanced sharply
anu ti.oagh the.e vvas a decline in live
animals and meats this was attributed
to feed shortage and cannot be regarded as an alleviation in fundamental
'conditions. Moreover, Imported fools,
including sugar were on decidedly
higher leveis. The financial tone was
favorable, and the gold production ths
largest recorded. From a cost of living standpoint, therefore, notwithstanding declines in cotton, rubber and
a few important articles, the year must
be regarded as having, through this
double influence of crop shortage and
accelerated consumption, distinctly intensified the situation which had previously given rise to such widespread
comment, though Industrially and
commercially it constitutes on the
whole a very favorable record."

WADDY"ROBERTSON WILL
PLAY AGAINST SAPPERTON
Football fans in the city will be
pleased to hear that "Waddy" Robertson will turn out for the Hovers
gainst the Sappertonians on Saturday
miernoon, on the latter's grounds.
������ Waddy" who has recently returned
from the north, has not played for
tlie past, two seasons, but figures that
hc is In good enough condition to
show the localB that he can come back
and then some.
Three seasons ago, playing for the
Celtidl, Robertson gained the championship of the Pacific Coast as a
go:il getter, and the defence of the
Sapperton bunch will have to be alive
io prevent their net from being
bulged more than once.
Here Is the lineup of the Rovers for
Saturday's game, subject to change:
Coal, Collier; backs, Lyons, McMillan; halves, Lewis, Bruce, Melklejohn;
forwards, Hayes, Cairnduff, Seggie,
Robertson, Shawcross and Walker.
It was made known yesterday that
S;uiipner, tho brilliant goaltender of
the Rovers, had quit the game for
good. He has recently taken a position with the O. H. Leaf Supply Co.
of East Burnaby, and perhaps tbe limited time he has at his disposal compels him to take this step. However,
the soccer season ls about over, and
when the rail goes forth in the fall lt
is tn be hoped that he will be in a position to again don the colors of the
Rovers.
and the ultimate decision will rest
with tne minister and the militia department, 'ine usual arrangements
tor sending a team are, however, being made, and ritlemen who are qualified are being asked if tney wiil be
able to gtt away, it is thought when
when a sutilement of the difticulty has
been art Ived at everything wi;l be lu
readiness for the team to get way to
the Bisley ranges at the usual time.

Y. M,   C.   A.   Swimming   Campaign���
How They Learn.
"A\v, quit your pushln'!" "Oosh, but
thla water's cold!" "(jet out o' my
way, >ou tioating featherbed, cant you
see 1 m almost swtmuiln".'" Merely a
tew moiillied reproductions of shouts
emerging from the basement of the
y. .vi. c. A. building duiing swimming
c lass exercises.
blub! biuu: blub!" was all that
could be seen of John Henry who
never before had trlcl to swim but
wasn't afraid.
' Murder! nelp! Police!" whispered
ii.��>.siioit gentleman with the  beveled
nt, as he came up to get a breath,
lille he stood" on his tiptoes, "i
should think the tide soon would go
down, cousideiin' all the water I've
swallowed since I've been In this ce-
im nt wash boiler."
i oung men aud old men, fat men
and lean men, attired In smiles and
. none flesh, are learning to swim lu
:tie most approved fashion preparatory to "open air" performances beiore wide-eyed mermaids at ocean and
Inland beaches later In the season. It
looks like a dramatic school only a
gieat deal more decollete, men and
boys standing in rows waving their
anna and kicking like lunatics with
St. Vitus dance. Some of them learn
quickly and others are too busy try-
lug to drink the water In the tank to
learn the strokes.
"6ay," shouted a 40-year-old understudy, yesterday, when he had regained hla feet after a terrible struggle,
" ji in t. it lunny how your head al-
\va\s wants to go to the bottom? I
always thought 1 was sort o' lightheaded. When 1 caflw up the fifteenth
time I couldn't find those amateurs
wii.gs so 1 went down again, but It
wasn t no use. The blamed things
j,ot tangled around my feet and H'b no
wonder I couldn't kee? my head trom
bumping on the floor of this municipal bathtub."
It is said that one man who wears
lalse teeth shivered bo much that his
leetb flew out and went to tho bottom. When all the "students" get into the pool together there Is hardly
room or water enough for each Indi-
vldual to execute bis newly learned
exercises.
This sure is great," a fat man of
the happy-go-lucky type declared yesterday. "I'd like to do this for a living. I've taken only three lessons
.���unl the way I can swim would make a
shark envious. I don't know how 1 do
it but I do."
The last of the four-horse omnibuses
j to bring passengers into London has
performed its final journey.
I    For close on thirty years Mr. Tom
Rickman, familiarly known along the
! road as "Old Tom."  has driven   for
Messrs. Tilling a  smartly  turned-out
team from the foot of Balham Hill to
Gracechurch street, passing over London   bridge   between    9:30    and    10
o'clock.    His passengers   clung   tenaciously to the old-fashioned mode of
i traveling,    regarding   electric    tramways and  motor-omnibuses   as   newfangled contrivances, with which they
were entirely out of sympathy.   They
formed a social little party each morning, and in cold weather brought their
I own rugs, which were put under the
j seats on reaching the City and taken
i back to the yard by "Old Tom."
For many years, however, the four-
horse vehicle has been rather a picturesque survival than a paying concern, and some time ago Its owners
announced it discontinuance. The
pessengers theteupon besought
Messrs. Tilling to reconsider their decision, and undertook In writing to be
regular patrons of the omnibus. For
some years, therefore, the smart-looking omnibus continued to bowl along
the Clapham toad cityward*, winter
and summer.
When Messrs. Tilling's recent decision to discontinue the service became
known, steps were again taken by the
passengers to preserve their old favorite, but "'is time without success.
For the last time yesterday morning
"Old Tom" drove his "regulars" from
Balham to the city, and it was with
evident regret on both sides that his
patrons and the old driver took farewell of each other on arriving at
Gracechurch street.
"Old Tom" will not suffer by the j
change, He Wlll not be called upon to I
transfer his affections from horseflesh :
to the motor-omnibus, for the com-1
pany still employ a number of borse
vehicles, and "Old Tom" will hence- j
foi th drive an omnibus plying between |
Clapham Junction and Richmond.

Keir Hardie Discusses Death Rates���
No  Substitutes Good.
London, April 10.���At a conference
on ihe care of baoies aud young chli-
uren at l-.'ssex Hail, Mr. Keir iladie,
uiscus.^ing a paper read by .Miss Margaret MtaiUlan, said it was a generally accepted fact that giowth, both
mental and ptiysiuui, was dependent
upon ali the organs of the body being
in a condition ot healthy activity.
"1 am not a believer in subsumes,"
declaied Air. Keir Hardie. "1 do not
believe In a substitute tor a mother iu
care of her child, and 1 do not believe
In a gymnasium as a substitute lor a
forest."
Tbe difficulty waa that we had certain social aud industrial condition
which weie posonlng life at every
point. If we were Koing to bave big
cities and big towns, witn all the conditions inherent iu these things, we
must not expect that the race was going to develop along healthy lines.
He remembered, thirty years ago,
being impressed by something that
happened during a big coal strike In
Scotland. The strike lasted six weeks,
and every week showed a reduction In
the death rate in those districts where
the strike was. That did not merely
apply to the men who worked on the
ground, but ll applied equally to the
mothers and to the children.
Ho found that when wages were
very low the death rate was low and
when wages weie high the death rate
rose with them, "'ihat Is not an argu-
men for low wages," added Mr. Keir
Hardie. with a smile. Irreguarity of
earnings led to Irregularity of diet.
Dr. Rthel Hontham said the almost
crowning offence was the Imbecility of
which wo were guilty In expecting the
child to get Its education finished by
the time that better-class children
were just thinking of seriously beginning. In dealing with the care of
children they had to go farther back
than the babies. Thev had to go to
the parents. Very little had been
done for the weighing, feeding and
clothing of mothers, and until they
got thst they could not bo said to attend pioperly tn the education or nurture of the children.

BREAKS IMMIGRATION
RECORD AT PORTLAND
Ottawa, Ont., April 10.���To judge
from the extremely heavy immigration trafTic for Canada which continues to arrive via the L'nited States
port of Portland. Maine, it would appear as if that port had been temporarily annexed by Canada for her own
use. Steamer alter steamer for
months past has unloa led record numbers of immigrants of whom all but o
fraction have been destined for Canada.
All previous records for passengers
landed by ahy individual steamer
were broken on Thursday last when
the steamship Zealan-��, from Rotterdam, specially chartered by the White
Star Dominion Line in conjunction
with the Red Star Line, lande:! no less
than 1559 passengers and. astonishing
as the proportion may seem, no less
than 1557 of these were bound for
Canada.

the bakery several hundred farm laborers rushed at the carriage which
they succeeded in reaching, when the
I mounted pollce prevented the piisoner
from beiug exposed to the violence
i which he would have sureiy have suffered.
Being unable to reach the prisoner,
the rioters proceeded to the station,
following the magistrates whom they
abused to such an extent that all entrances had to be closed to prevent
the magistrates from being maltreated. Hardly had they entered the train
when a shower of stones descended on
jthe caniage In wliich they were, sev-
. eral even entering the compartment,
! but without injunng anyone. One
rioter, however, cut his wrist when
breaking a glass in the waiting room.
The excitement is widespread in
the village and a petition is being
circulated for the public prosecutor to
take up the inquiry concerning an old
affair in which an old man was found
drowned in his well, and which pub-
lice rumor accuses Peugnel of having
perpetrated with intent to rob.

TRAVELER   SAYS   PORT
NELSON HA8 GREAT FUTURE
Le Pas, Man., April 10.���Horace Hal-
crow, who returned trom rort Nelson a few days ago, has a very interesting report to'make about the future great port of Canada.
Mr. Halcrow has been several times
down tho bay both at Fort Churchill
and Port Nelson. In his opinion the
latter ts undoubtedly the better port
on account of deep central channel,
the wide entrance and the fact that
the land whore the city would be located ts high and dry and well protected by trees.
There can be no doubt about the
north side of tho river being the best
location for a city as the south side
ls often submerged ten miles Inland.
On the trip from wliich he has juBt
returned, ho met two men located on
land near Port Nelson   intending to
claim squatters rights when the time
' comes that tho Innd will be surveyed.

The longer shape can be tied around i
the waist and finished iu a short butterfly bow made of lbe ends.
Long ends hanging from short loops:
can be unlinked iu two. strips or one:

As tho bags are not large, of course, the gifts are small ones.
An Aunt Sally holding a large bag and also supplied wtth small pockets
on her gown would perhaps afford opportunity for a little more variety so far
as the size of gifts is concerned One advantage of the small pockets Is that
tbe contents of each might be contributed b.v a different person, and thus the
expense ot the entire grab bag may be divided and variety and uoveltjr at
gifts be assured.
