Mr. T. F. Sinclair of New Westminster, tendering on behalf ot the Fia.e,-
Valiey x tie and Cement company,
with which the Sinclair Construction
Company has been incorporated, has
secured the contract from the Dominion fcovemment for the Jetty to be
built at tbe mouth of the Fiaser river.
This was the news receive I by Mrs.
Sinclair yesterday morning In a te.e-
gram from her husband, who accompanied bis bid ln person to Ottawa.
Mr. Sinclair put in the lowest tender
of $171,000 for the 6900 feet of Jetty
which is the first instalment on the
work to be constructed on the north
side of the river at the Sandheads.
The Norton Griffiths Consti uction
Company were the closest competitors
with a bid of $190,000.
Residents of New Westminster will
learn this news with great Interest, as
Mr. Sinclair ls a very old timer in construction work in this province, and
many local men are associated with
him in the new company, lt U wei.

moods. Some years ag6 he di 1 nearly
all the wor'i for the.government on

Ex Governer-General of Canada Honored.
FOR SERVICE TO THE EMPIRE
The "Petrusco!" What ls lt? It is
to te the llrst man-made bi.d to fiy
in biitisii Columbia, and, is tbe creation of two local men, charlee H. Rod-
dls, wbo has charge of tne conveyancing department of the People's
Trust Company ln this city, and hid
colleague, Ralph Keast, of Vancouver,
it ls a monoplane, based on the famous Bleriot macnine, but designed
and built by these two local inventors.
It is full of devices and patents, the
result of months of careful work by
the two young men, and when it is finished, and that day is near, tbey hope
that they will have built the fits,
machine to tly in Brl ish Coiumb.a
For nine months they have been working on this child of their brains, and
lt Is their ambition to have every part
periect. Within a month, says Mr,
Roddls, the work will be finished, the
parts will be assembled, and then k
will be but a matter of time and practise till tbe artificial bird is soar.us
in the air.
Charles Rod .'is is an Englishman,
who lias lived ln Vancouver for about
three years, experimenting ln wireless
telegraphy and aeioplane building and
wording for the People g Trust at tbe
same time. He is still a young man,
and modest withal, but lie will talk
about the "Petrusco," his "veiy own*'
Invention. Qnce launched he ls hard
to follow as he runs through a maze
of technical terms���trusses and stays,
cycles and warping wings and patent
flywheels���but here are a few facts
gleaned from this harvest of info.nn-
tion.
The monoplane, when assembled,
will measure 35 feet across the wings.
and 24 feet from end to end of the
body. It will weigh 575 lbs, and havo
a lifting power of 300 lbs. Compare
with this/ a very similar machine, a
Bleriot. which has flown the Engllsn
channel, and weighs 750 lbs., and carries two passengers with but a 25
boreepower Anzani engine.
The Petrusco will be equipped with
an Kldrids.e 50 horsepower, two-ejc.e
thi ee port water and uli-cooled engine.
A particular featui'fe of the machine io
A traclo;- propellor built and designed
by tha Inventors themselves, une of
these is made of spruce, and the other of laminations of sprue* en* Mixta.
Another special point ls a patent flywheel, "which," said the inventor
proudly, "since it was invented by us.
has been adopted by some of the lead
ing aeronauts and aeroplane builders
of Great Britain, ln Eld ridge's catalogue you can see It quoted as the
'Vancouver monoplane engine.'" A
patent vaporiser, an automatic carburettor, and a duplex ignition system
developed from Mr. Rod lis* own experiments are other novelties ln ths
construction.
"Our planes ere made to onr own
design, too, without trussing,' stay-
wires, or ips, but they aie son constructed thst the wings can be
warped. We also obtain a third more
lifting capacity than other machines
rrom the deviation of the angle of Incidence from the under side of the
wing and a stream-line effect on the
back ot the wing, which almost eliminates air resistance."
The flying machine will be regulated, when in the air, by natural mo
tions. Accordingly the flyer will bs
strapped In, and just behave as if he
were riding a "wheel." All the con
tr'ol ls" from one wheel with a loose
rost, so that the steering and balano
fng will be almost automatic, so long
as the air-man has hold of the steering gear. Just to give a finishing
touch to the whole affair it will be fitted with a miniature wi eless apparat
us with a ran0e of 25 mi es, aad
weighing only two  lbs.
"We Intend to show our machine,"
said Mr. Roddls, "at tbe Vancouver
Automobile show in April, \\* have
made arrangements wltb. the Vancouver Exhibition Association to assemble the ports In the basement of one
ot their buildings, and that wll bo an
ideal location to try lt out In."
"But aren't you going to 'ea-n to
tly first before trying It?" the inventor
waa asked.'
"No.   We have got a leate of S00

London, Jan. 23.���Amid a scene ot
pageantry and ln the presence of an
Illustrious company, Earl Grey's nam��
today was added to the roll of the
Freemen of the historic city of London, ln recognition of hia services to
the Em; ire as governor-general of
Canada. This, the highest honor the
citizens of Lon.ton can bestow, bas
been the coveted possession of the
first British statesmen and warriors
all through history.
By his accession to this body, which
from Saxon and Noi man days, ' has
preserved London's liberties against
kings and parliaments alike, Earl
Grey gains quaint privileges. He is
given the right ot ingress and egress
and freedom from arrest within tbe
city limits. He may even raise an
army In defence of the King, or to
safeguard civic rights. Unhappily for
freemen, in these Lloyd George diys
they have lost the old privileges of
freedom from taxation.

An analysis of tbe snnual report of
the city engineer shows that during
1911 4.92 milea of streets were cleared, 7.09 graded, 3.49 macadamized,
9.96 miles of wood sidewalks were lata
and 1.11 of culverts. 13.90 miles of cement sidewalks were laid in all.
In 1909 there were only 9.36 miles
of sewers existing ln tbe city; at the
end of 1910 there were 15.86 laid, bu:
at the enl of last year tbere were
46.71 milea laid and under consti uction. The Sapperton sewerage system on which tbe department is now
working will add 46 miles to this
total. Much information bas been collected preparatory to preparing a
scheme for sewering that portion of
the city lying west of Fourteenth
street with another 14 miles of pipe.
The new 25-inch man and tbe 13
and 12-inch mains running to tbe city
limits on Lulu Island, bave been completed, and two and three-quarter
million gallons of water have been
supplied to the city every day since'
Sept. 27. When the permanent worn,
at the Coquitlam dam is completed
the full supply of six and one-quarter
million gallons daily will be available from the 25-Inch main, in addition to 650,000 gallons from the exis.
lng 14-inch main.
* The engineer estimates that 10.000,-
000 gallons storage would be sufficient, for five years or so, to give a
seven days supply. This, he suggests, could be secuied by providing a
new reservoir at Queen's Pai k with a
storage capacity of 5.000,000 gal ons.
by increasing the capacity of the Sapperton loR-er reserve to 3.000,000
gallons, and that of the Sappeit:n
high level reservoir by raising the
water level three feet. The approximate cost of these additions is given
as $61,000,000. The existing sto age ct- -

New York, Jan. 23.���There is under
thoughtful consideration among some
of the most prominent men in the
western financial field a pian which,
if consummated, will result in greater changes ln ralload relations west
of Chicago than any since the days
of E. H. Harriman. Even In the Harriman era there was no project of
such great conseiuence pl-nned. for
performance at one time.
Apart from the Atchiscn, Topeka
and Santa Fe Railroad, the Chicago,
Milwaukee A St. Paul and Harriman
lines, the plan concerns all of tha
great railroad systems of the west.
Involved in it are the Rock Island, a
Moore-Reid system, tbe Gould-Western
systems, the Chicago and Northwestern, a Vanderbilt road, and the three
great Hill lines, the Oreat Noithern,
Northern Pacific and Chicag-, Burlington and Quincy.
The Proposed Plsn.
The plan Is for a joint interest by
the Rock Island and Chicago, Burlington and Quincy in tte Missouri Pad-

Vancouver, Jan. 24.���Instructions
hkve been given to Chief of Police
Chamberlin to take prompt steps regarding the better policing of tbe city
in view of the large number ot holJ-
ups recently. This decision was arrived at, at the flrst meeting of the
new police commission on Saturday
afternoon. The congested state of the
Jail was also under consideration and
it was decided that a number of steel
cages or cells be ordered. They wi.l
be located at the jail and will be for
temporary use. The commissioner
discussed the advisability of prohibiting street meetings and the chief bas
been instructed to issue an order that
all unlawful gatherings, especially
those where persons are incited to
riot, are to be dispersed and it was
decided to put tbe order ln force Immediately.
Chief Chamberlin reported as to
the number of applications he had received for positions on the force consequent on the mayor's directions that
additional constables should be ao-
pointed and it was considered desirable that tbe men ahould be placed on
duty as quickly as possible.
WHOLESALE   PRICES ON
VERY   HIGH   LEVEL
Wholesale prices throughout Canada during December were on practically the same level aa tn the pre-
cedipg month, according to the index
number of the Department of Labor.
The number stood at 130 in both
months. Compared with December a
year ago, a rise of over eight points
is shown. These numbers, it will bd
understood, are percentages In each
case of the average price level prevailing during the decade 1890-1909,
and are calculated from quotations of
about 230 articles. The chief Increases during the past year occurred
in grains and fodder, dairy products,
flsh, hides and metals, there having
been decreases in animals and meats,
textiles, paints and oils.
MANACLED WHEN HE
HEARD SENTENCE
New York, Jan. 23.���For the flrst
time in the criminal history of New
York a man was sentenced to deata
here with his hands manacled and
heavy chains about his legs. The
prisoner was Joseph Serrone, regarded as one of the most desperate men
ever connected with crime in New
York City.
Serrone murdered his wife, Kate,
last October, by cutting her thra it
from ear to ear with a lazor. During
the progress of liis trial and conviction last week he attempted to murder one of the Jurors. Then he gashed his throat wth a piece of glass and
fought the Jail attaches until he wa3
clubbed into unconsciousness.
When Serrone learned   today that
he was to be sentenced by Judge Poster, he Jerked the bandage from hi*
throat and attempted to re-open the
wound.    Again   he  fought   with   the
guar-ls until he was clubbed Into -unconsciousness.     Later,   wben    ho   had
uttlclc.ntly    recovered,   be   ��u   man- \'
acted and chained and carried into tbo \
courtroom.    Tben the doors were or-
dered  closed  and Judge Foster   sentenced    Serrone   to   be   electrocuted
some time during the week cf February 26.
only to tbe telephone calls. It waa an
Item that annoyed bim, for his Income was not large. So he conferred
with his wife as they had agreed they
would do *Vhen they were married,
when a matter of importance botbeied
either of them.
As a result of the conference���it has
not been disclosed whether the husband or the wife was th��-author of
tbe idea���this plan waa put Into effecc
and it worked successfully all summer
and late Into the fall.
The husband knew every evening
by siv o'clock whether he could get
home. The understanding with his
wife was that if the telephone rang
between flve minutes to six o'clock
and flve minutes after six o'clock she
was not to answer but start the dinner going. It was the signal to ber
that he was coming bome. Of course
if he was not coming home be would
telephone to her earlier and let her
know, and then he would have to
pay.
But when the wife got the signal at
tbe witching hour of six o'clock and
did not touch the telephone, central
sweetly told him "Don't answer," and
he said "Thank you" and hiked for
the train, not having had to contribute a cent to the telephone company.
"You'd be surprised," says the husband ln telling the story, "how much
money I have saved that way all sum-

London, Jan. 23.���The house at Ecclefechan, in the district of Annandale, ln tbe county of Dumfries, where
Thomas Carlyle was born, "in a room
conveniently small," on Dec. 4, 1795,
is to be purchased iffcr the nation.
Some time ago the house became the
projerty of a London syndicate, who
bought it from the then owner, who
was a nephew of tbe "Sage of Chelsea." The Interior bf the house underwent etxenslve alterations and was

WOMAN   MAYOR   WIN8. I
After     a     struggle     lasting     for
neany     ten     months,     Mrs.     Ella
; Wilson, the woman  mayor of Hunne-,
well, Kansas, has won out and is today in supreme command of the town, j
with as much  real  authority as anv;
Mayor ln the United   States.    It  ls a i
good  old saying that  "God  and   one j
make a majority," and   Mrs.   Wilson i
triumphed    because   the   things   she J
was fighting for were right, and  bc-j
cause sbe was enabled to enlist   tU--1
sympathy of the governor of tha Stat? j
and other powerful influences.    Still.!
in Hunnewell the  Mayor seemed   lo
be In a minority, for certainly   there
was not a strong enough local   ODin-
ion behind her to force her colleagues
to render her common   respect,   anl
she had arrayed against her all   the
evil lnflences of a town tbat prided it
self on being lively.    Now that   she
has succeeded, Mrs. Wilson may flnd
that everybody was with ber from t'ie
flrst, and that she is the most popular citizen in the place, and perhaps a
favored daughter ln line for comtill-
some h|,rher

cletechan. Of late years an ever-Increasing number of admirers of Car-

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^aaaaaaaaa��� on her part.   Indeed, It would snnear
lyle  have visited the   house in the I that in
hamlet described by Carlyle in "Sar
tor Resartus" as "Entepfujil." It is not
one of the most beautiful hamlets in
Scotland, but It has many charms to
the .receptive mind. Carlye living
there was within hearing of two
mighty voices of nature: The Sol way
Firth ebbing and flowing within six
miles of his boyhood home, and thc
mountains of Cumberland, within
sight. Visitors from this side visit
the hamlet and tbe house in great
numbers every summer and as many
as 1200 have entered their names in
the i isitors' books ln the course of
one tourist season.
Kansas people may be elected who are not candidates at nil; for,	
Mrs. Wilson, when told th-U she hai | flrBt
been elected mayor, declared that sbe
conld not dream of accepting tho offlce, because she was too busy at
home. After awhile, however, she
concluded that she would be mavor.
If only to carry out some reform ideai
that she cherished, such as stopping
the illegal sale of Honor and closine
the gambllne dens that infested the
town. Whether lt whs h��r reform
program or her sex that influenced

councillors insisted that she bad --n
been legally elected; tbat If she were
legally tbe mayor, she had only been
chosen as a joke, and tbat if sh had
had not been elected as a Joke, they
were not going to be bothered with
her anyway; that sbe cou'd dj nothing without them, and that she might
as well resign at ones and save har-
self mortification.
The Town "Wide Open."
Undeterred, the mayor calle.l tba
first meeting of the council, but nona
of the councillors turned up. She
later learned that they had hei J a
secret meeting In the bedroom of a
hotel. The business transacted at
this gecret meeting the mayor declined to recognize as legal, and she
blocked lt, for lf the Council could
block the Mayor, the Mayor could
block the council, ani so no business
was done. In the meantime, the element in the town that hoped to see
lt "wide open" took advantage of tbe
deadlock, apd with no one to enforce
the law, disorder and vice flourished
as never before. It was at this stage
of the struggle that stories came from
Hunnewell, telling what a failure the
womau mayor was, and otherwise attempting to discredit her efforts. Mrs. Wilson wanted to appoint
a marshal, but tbe council would not
sanction tbe appointment, declaring
that the town could not afford the expense. In her trouble the' mayor went
to the governor of the state. He told
her to appoint a marshal), and tnat the
governor wouid see that he was paid.
Women Wo.* for Nothing.
So Mrs. Wilson went home, and
appointed one of her women friends
a maishall and another woman f.ieni
city clerk, 'l'he governor alto show-
ej'his interest in Mrs. Wilsons fight
by instructing his attorney-general to
keep his eye on Hunnewell. so that
the flrst time the councilmen were
caught tripping the state could act.
The attorney-general then noti.led tne
councilors that it was their duty to
attend the council meetings. This
procured their attendance, but failei
to make them support the mayor, ani
despite her efforts, not a sinr; e official was appointed save . Vie two |
women friends of the mayor who were
serving without salary.    No tax rate

TROUBLES   OF   THE    RICH.
Philosopher Dunn Discard* Norn de
Plume and Dig* In.
I F. P. Dunne drops the mask of Mr.
j Dooley and philosophizes in the Amer-
| lean Magazine for January. about
j worldly Wiseman and Christmas.
! Worldly Wiseman is a great mutti mil-
I lionaire who is bored with life and
i can see nothing in (. hiistmas. Here U
; what he says about his own . experi-
! ence at Chiistmas:
"There's my wife. The last Christmas I spent with her in Pari* I went
down to the Rue de la Paix and got
her a jewel that should have made
her eye* stick out. Coat me a barrel
of money. A barrel! What dil ghe
do? Thanked me and chucked it ln-1
to a work-basket full of flannels that
she was sewing for some hospital.
There's my sister. She loves Jewels,
,)ut she has so many they're .an Incumbrance to her, and they're so valuable
that she doesn't wear them when she
goes out, but leaves them In a' sate
deposit vault and ruts on imitations.
There's my nephew. He'll have my
money wben I die lf he behaves himself; but he's got as much money now ,
in his own right ss I will leave him.
What can I get for him? When I was
a boy if I got a gold watch or a scarf-
pin at Christmas I wss happy, but ha
has a* many gold watches aa Simpson,
the pawn-broker, and a different pli
for every scarf he owns. He's on'y a
sophomore ln college, but he owns a
90-horsepower machine, a string of
polo ponies, a motorboat that can
make thirty miles an hour, and he's
negotiating with the Wright brothers
for an aeroplane. What's the use of.
trying to surprise him? I suppose It's
the same way with the presents he
sends me. I wish he'd not send me
anything biitjcome over and spend a
week with me. But, of course, I can't'
expect that. He'd be bored to death.
Johnny Wijjg* Is Different.
He comes Into contact with Johnny
Wiggs. Here is ^lr. Dunne's characterization, or rather 'description of
Johnny Wiggs:
"lt is entirely possible that you have
never heard of Johnny Wiggs. He li
neither great enough nor bad enouah
to be celebrated by the fame which is
blown through the trumneti of ��� the
metropolitan press. But lie is a prominent man. nevertheless, as you would
know lf you tend the South Middle-
vale (N. J.) Weekly Recorder, where
"WE FURNISH YOUR HOME COMPLETE'
674-S78 Columbia Street
New Westminster, B. C.
you would aiBocrvcr blm prMtSlu* o*s sr
meetings   for   the   extension    ot    the
electric lighting system of Locust avenue, acting as chairman of the South
Middlevale Bowllhg League, and performing the labors of secretary of the
South  Middlevale Progiesslve Republican Club.   In New Yo k he is widely
known as a chief clerk of much Influence, respected and admired by his
employer, a leader in fraternal organizations,  former president of the Ink
Eraser's   Benevolent   and   P.otective
Association,   and   high, exalted   and
most     irascible     potentate    of    the
Knights of Majesty, a society of g-eat
worth and power. Although not a rich
man, he possesses   abundant   means.
By a recent Inventory hls assets were
as follows:
"One wife.
"Seven children.
"One good job.
"One life insurance policy for $5000.
"An inexhaustible confidence in the
goodwill of all mankind, and
"A stomach capable of digesting
hard coal.
"As you may guess, Christmas was
a great time for Mr. Wiggs. He spent
a part of every sight of the year just
before going to sleep thinking about
next Christmas. The poet remembered a Christmas eve he had spent at
Johnny Wlggs' house, In South Middlevale. After supper the children
were shooed to bed and the 'pat lor,'
which had been hermetically sea ed
for two days, was opened, disclosing
the Christmas tree upon which lt was
Mr. Wlggs' duty to put the finishing
touches ot a great artist in Christina
tree dressing. Mr. Wlggs had done
the needful but unimaginative work of
stringing the popcorn and festooning
lt on the branches of the tree stick
ing heie and there some colored glass-
balls, like an assistant preparing a
canvas for a painter.
8lght for the Peat.
"It was a fine sight and one which
the poet wlll put. Into his recollections when he writes them ,to see the
artist at work, Mrs. Wiggs fluttering
about finding ornaments and making
futile suggestions and Father Wiggs
sitting in the corner a large cigar ln
his aged hand, offering his sage advice.
'"Wouldn't you move that candle
over a little to the left?' says the old
gentleman. 'I don't know but what lt
would be a good idea,' says the young
er artist And he makes the changs
and then steps back and surveys It
like a painter who has Just finished a
bold stroke with his brush and wants
to see the effect from a little distance.
At 6 o'clock the next morning the
house is ringing with exclamations of
surprise and outcries of joy. and no
one Is noisier than Johnny Wiggs h'm-
self." ,

SIR WILFRID AT HOME.
Now aad again one is surprised to
> in U* ministerial organs impeach-
__ats of flatulaaoe allegedly exhibited
in the actions and words pf Sir Wilfrid Lital^ always accompanied with
the charitable explanation that the de-
fceW tlMHtt Chieftain   ls   chafing
-over the rout of his party, says the
Victoria Times. We hesitate to be-
lleve tb^ee thlftss of Sir Wilfrid and
have never been able to interpret hi*
(���ported  addtesses  and  remarks, In
'tha Hoese��f Commons or out of it, ss
Justifying the assertion that he is
grieved over the temporary eclipse of
hls party. The government press does
.Itself little credit when, ln the act of
Imputing tt*lp6p#ent spirit and atraln-
��ed temper to Sir Wilfrid, lt is compelled to draw on Its imagination and
'fabricate to counter hia well-directed
���Shafts.    .''"
We hav��>seen * pen picture of the
leader of tbe opposition as he appears
.-at home, draws by one who is neither
Tory nor Grit. E. W. Thomson, writing in the Boston Transcript, gives us
m glimpse of the heart of Canada's
flrst man. Surely lf Sir Wilfrid felt
-embittered or despondent ov|r his
own position or the destiny of Canada,
���uch sentiments would flnd their expression ln a confidential chat with a
Jlfe-long newspaper man and friend.
Mr. Thomson says:
"Tour correspondent, too, had the
pleasure of some talk with Sir Wilfrid today, ia his library. To Americana, to British, to the foreign world,
and, in fact, he ls the one and supremely Interesting figure in Canada.
It ia good meafclhe to see him so well

INDIAN TRAGEDY
[Two   Men   and   One   Woman���Third
Man  la Victim  In  Double
Crime..  ,.
London, Out,, Jan. 23.���The jury
which Investigated the double murder
ot Abraham jolins and Charles Nan-
dee, Indians, of Waipole Ialand, returned a verdict blaming Stephen
Kiyoajtk, another Indian, for shooting
them.
Coroner Ferguson at onoe issued an
order for Klyosha's arrest on a charge
of murder, and he was arraigned before Magistrate Bookman qf Fort
Lambton and committed for trial in
April.   Kiyosbk was lodged in Sarnia
Jail.
Fiosse Williams who was wltb him
on the night of the killing, waa freed,
but Is held as a materia} witness. The
Crown's whole case rests on the sensational story pt Mrs. Joseph Williams.
How she and her 18-year-old daughter,
hidden in a deeerted log cabin on the
ley shores of Squirrel Island, heard
the quarrel that preceded the killing
of Charles Nahdee and William Johns
on New Year'a night ahd later from I
their houses tbe shots wbich ended'
the t^o men's lives.
With the aid of a smart Interpreter,
who translated her guttural tongue
Into English she described to the Jury
how Kiyoshk went to Nahdee's house,
quarrelled with him, and then struck
off across the fields, saying that he
would return with a gun and kill Nahdee.
About 6 o'clock on New Year's night
she and ber daughter, she said, were
sitting alone In tbeir cabin when their
attention was attracted by loud talking trom the river. On Investigating
they saw two boats making their way
through the Ice. In one was Adam \*
Johns and the prisoner Kiyoshk. The
other was manned by Fiosse Williams,
a young Indian girl who lived with
Kiyoshk, and whom he spoke of aa his
wife.
In the theory that she had abandoned Kiyoshk and transferred her
affections to Nahdee, the authorities
hope to find the motive for the mur-

Ottawa, Jan. 23.���After debating the
question of mixed marriages all. day
yesterday, the House of Commons
early this morning decided by a
division of 86 to 81 tb accept the
premier's suggestion an 1 refer the
whole matter tg the supreme court
and privy council. IBM ve Conservative
members. Messrs. Lancaster, Maclean,
Kidd, Blain and Edwaads, votfu
against Mr. Borden's amendment.
The debate arose on the Mart lege
bill, introduced by Mr. Lancastj.,
who aald Mut doubt existed aa to the
validity bf the marriage law fuuy
performed, because parties protesaeu-
different religions or because tbe person performing the ceremony waa of
a different religion. Because of certain ecclesiastical decrees issued from
a foreign country, it had been decided tnat certain marriages, thoug.i
performed by persons legally qualified
to do so, were not legsl, and doubts
were thrown in regard to the legitimacy of children arising from tuose
mai rlages.
His strictures on Str Alan Aylesworth drew trom Mr. chlanoim, of Antigonish, the question: "What does
your minister of Justice say '���."     ***
Mr. Lancaster replied that the minister would speak lor himself. He had
had no conference with Mr. Doherty.
He did not know what Mr. Doherty
was going to aay.. Perhaps Mr. Doherty himself did not Tbe Liberal
members shouted loudly at this, and
Mr. Lancaster replied that "The
hordes who sat behind Sir Wilfrid
Laurier had no idea of the man waking to hear both sides of the question before coming to a conclusion."
The speaker made him withdraw ttie
word "hordes."
Mr. Lancaster went on to say that
the doctrine laid down by some meant
that there was one law for Roman
Catholics and another for others, and
concluded with an argument that par
liament had the inherent right to
remedy the evil of which he complained.
Mr. Borden, in moving his amendment that the debate be adjourned,
said the question was of great importance to many people in Canada, anj
before passing any bill it would be
better to have the judgment of the
supreme court and of the privy [
council on the existing marriage law.

great interest taken in thla   railway

(tuitlam ls not confined to' the Westminster   iand    Vancouver    residents.
This is proved by the large number
of mail Inquiries which have been l e-
celved in the past few days by W. J.
Kerr, who is now concluding the sale
of the subdivision known as Mercantile Section.      Seventy-three mail   inquiries have reached Mr. Kerr's office
in  lhe past six days and   over   two
score  lots  have  been  sold,  while   a
number are sold under- reserve   until

A violin note may detonate an explosion, or,  if Iona continued, may

The vibrations of a violin are really
serious  in  their  unseen,  unbounded
force, and when they come with regu-
arity they exercise an influence upon
structures of brick, iron or stone.   It
follows   of  course,  that  there  must
hav- ' been   continuous   playing   for

morning I went on deck and learned
that two of tbe male prisoners were
ill and had been brought up to tbe
deck for sir. Tbey were closely guarded, nnd raw recruits were stationed at
the railing to prevent tbem from committing suicide by Jumping overboard
Into the Hugll river.
"The   Aiidmnnns   are   literally   the

remarkably hazardous dashes for liberty hnve been made from time to
lime, which, though futile, were raoet
daring. Some time ago the steamer
Knlatn picked up a poor, emaciated
wretch wbo wns sighted on a email
linmboo raft off tbe Arakan cOnst. He
was later found to be nn escaped convict. When picked up be bad been on
the raft for twenty-nine days during
one of tbe southwest monsoons snd
bad secured water by catching the
mln and sucking It from his turbao
and loin cloth. He lived upon flying
flsh tbnt flsw aboard the raft, eating
ihem raw. He was swept otf the raft
many times Ity the waves, but bad
managed to cling to It. After a month
In n hospital at Rangoon he was returned to prison and solitary confinement.
"Another dart** attempt at escape
was made by a party of elx cpnvlcts
who were sent with two native police-
I men to a small i Island off the middle
I Andamnn to work.   They managed to
i escape from the guards nnd. hoisting
the will of tbe smnll boat, started oat
In a gnlp.   After wren days of heavy
weather they  were dashed upon tbe
rock* of the Tenasserim const, and the
Imnr wns wrecked.    All escaped with
their lives and eventually reached the
Siamese horder. where they were apprehended by. the local nuthorttlea and
returned to the prison."

Miss Eleanor Haber who is appearing in the vivacious part of Necia in
Kex Beach's charming drvona of nDrth-
ern life, "The Barrier," bas had a
large and vai led experience in playing
leading roles.
Miss Haber made her debui playing
minor roles ln the Alacazar stock at
San Francisco. After two seasons of
stock grind, Miss Haber sought to
market her talent with some of the
large producing manages s of New
Vork City, and in this effort, Miss
Haber was successful. One of her first.
New Vork engagements being an important role with Mary Mannering, in
"The Walls of Jericho." Since then
Miss Haber has supported Herbert
Kelsey and Effle Shannon in "Bridge*

Two seasons ago, Miss Haber was
chosen for the part of Chere Malotte
in Rex Beach's "The Spoilers," and
