In Spite of Evident Opposition from Unions in Vancouver.
Workers   Object   to   Saturdsy   Night
Closing of Banks���Recent Appointment Honors Council.
Lengthy discussion over the advisability uf placing a barber shop on
the unfair list, deciding to urge local
workmen to establish local unions affiliated with the central labor body
Instead of maintaining Jhelr allegiance to the Vancouver unions to which
so many union men employed here
belong, and grateful recognition of tbv
honor conferred upon Its president by
the provincial government In appointing him on the commission on Labor,
and opposition to Saturday night closing of banks, occupied the attention of
the Trades and Labor Council at Its
regular meeting last evening.
President McLaughlin of the Barbers' union, brought up the matter pf
a city barber shop, saying that the
union card had been removed and the
shop was unfair because it does nol
employ a union journeyman barber
but has only an apprentice, and it is
against the rules of all unions to grant
a card to any shop that does not employ a union man In good standing.
Promising Boycott.
After considerable discussion, the
matter was referred to the grievance
committee to report, and If that body
Is unable to square the shop It ls a
foregone conclusion that It will be
formally boycotted at the next meeting of the Trades and Labor Councll
That the Vancouver unions all alon;;
the line are opposed to the organiza
tlon of localR in this city was brought
out by a letter read by President R.
A. Stoney relatlviy to the organization
of a tailor's union here. It was decided to Instruct the delegates of the
B. C. Federation of Labor convention
in Victoria next month to present the
matter to that body with the object of
obtaining lta sanction of the organization of a looal union here.

���Westminster is indebted to Vancou
-*er for the suggestions made lasi
night by the secretary of the board of
trade of that city that there should
lie established here a branch of the
Imperial Home Reunion Association
The scope of thia body ls to stand as
security for funds advanced to men
desirous of bringing out their wives
and families from oversea.
It is not a new idea for at the pres
��nt time twenty-six Canadian cities
lmve followed Winnipeg's lead and
now have associations of this nature,
and by their work, thousands of sterling settlers have been brought out
lo become we trust good Canadians
earlier than Uioy otherwise would
tio ve done.
The money advanced for fares ln
this way has been regularly returned
and to date there is not a single defaulter upon the lists of any cf the u-
aociations.   That speaks for itself.
There have been several men In
this city who have made application
to tbe Vancouver branch for assist
ance. but they have been refused as
<]Uite naturally, the sister city consid
ers she has enough requests to handk
from her own people.
There are prcbably many Westmiu
ater citizens keeping up an establish
ment at their old homes and living an
enforced life of single "blessedness'
bere also. To tbeni the formation of
such an association would be a >erlt
able godsend.
Wc have risen to tho rank of a citj
and consequently must shoulder out
responsibilities. We should nevei
have permitted Westminster men tc.
apply for aid elsewhere, but, with tlie
capable committee which now bas the
matter in hand we feci mire that a
satisfactory solution of this niattei
v.ill  be arrived at.
ent the British Isles are for food and.
raw material upon keeping open ths
ocean trade routes, and how the unity
of the empire Is impossible, without
an adequate navy. The taxpayers of
the United Kingdom alono can no
longer bear the growing burden.
The co-operation cf all parts of the
British empire in providing for the
national defence is walat the duke
calls practical imperialism. He saya
the last few years have beon characteristic by a remarkable growth o
imperialistic feeling. This, he holds,
is not an outgrowth of aristocracy
but of democracy; uot an empty, vainglorious jingo policy, but the highest
and latest incarnation of democratic
nationalism, a conscious manifestation of the solidarity of the race.
The British Empire extends over
11.447,954 square miles. It( la nearly
one hundred times as large as tht

areas situated in a temperate zone,

valuable tropical colonies and countless Islands. The empire possesscp
nearly all the most importai strategical positions In the wor'd that
dominate all seas. It ls essentially a
maritime empire aud most vulnerablo

Somt Petty Squabbles That Have Led
ta Slaughter.
Countries have plunged into the horrors ol war for some very curious and
trivial reasons. Perhaps the most extraordinary of all was the spilling of
a little water. Mrs. Maslmm, the lav-
orite lady-in-waiting to Queen Anne,
was carrying a glass of water to her
royal mistress when she accidentally
collided with the Marquis de Torey,
on whose clothes the water was spilt.
High Words ensued, and" the marquis,
failing to obtain an apology, considered himself and his country insulted.
The brilliant campaigns of the Duke
pf Marlborough ensued.
, On Oct. 17, 1739. England went to
war with Spain mainly owing to pub-
.lie excitement over what liurke after-
Wards described as "the fable of Jen-
ikins' ear." Jenkins was the skipper
of a small trading vessel from Jamaica which was hoarded by the com-
.Oiander of a Spanish coastguard boat,
who, enraged at finding nothing contraband, flew at the English captain,
tore off one of his ears, and flung it in
liis face.
; "Carry it to King George," roared
the irate Spaniard, "and s.y we will
.serve bim the same if wi get ths
chance." Jenkins placed the ear in
a box, whieh he carried home and presented at the liar ol the House of
Commons, relating his adventure, and
adding that at the supremo moment
of torture, "I recommended my soul
to God, and my cause to my country."
Hence the crisis whieh led to the declaration ol war.
A thumb bite precipitated Britain's

In ifes  answer  to   President  Taft's'

that tUe Americana slain b.v Mexicans j

Enl*rpri��ing Autlralian Rabbits.
About 45 years ago three pairs ol
enterprising rabbits were introduce)
into Australia, To-day the increase nl
these six immiennts may lie counted
by million*. They became a pest to
the Country. Fort tines linve been spent
to exterminate them. Wire fences
many feet high and thousands ol
miles lung have lieen built to keep out
the invaders.
The rabbin had to fight awful n<l<l��
to live, but they have now outwitted
mull. Tbey have developed a new
titii!���r> long nail by wliich they can
retail' their hob1 nn the fence'while

can burr uv .-ix or > ight inches under
the neltiiif and thus enter the Heidi
thai meiin food nd life to them, 'they
ore now laughing at man. Reserve
power has vitalized for these rabbits
latent possibilities, because tliey did
not tamely accept their condition, but
in their struggle to live learned how
to live.

wben four of the teams comprising tbe
City league will battle ftj��_��Upremacy.
At the present time-the position of
the leaders ls by no means settled and
a win or lose for any team in the up

At Moody Park the City and Moose
will meet at 2:30 o'clock with New-
some handling the whistle.
Herb Ryall will take a chance In the
half back line and the old veteran
firmly believes he can come back.
Burnaby and Sapperton will furnjHh
the excitement at Sapperton park.

and are hot after the scalji of last

What may possibly prove the thTll-
ler of the local rugby season will be
Btagtd at Queen's Park this afternoon
when Westminster meet the Crusad-
���erB tor the second time in the Miller
The Crusaders are undoubtedly the
finest team playing the English game
���on the coast today and tbls has been
demonstrated time and again when
the selection committee of the Vancouver union alwaya play havoc with
the  team  In choosing a 'rep  fifteen.
The Royals have been steadily Improving for the past flwe weeks and
tlieir showing against the Firemen
���of Vancouver last Saturday justifies
the statements that Westminster has
n te|m in the making and wlll probably be among the leaders next winter.
There is no dearth of players and
the selection committee have had difficulty In choosing from the- list as
dvery man Is working hard to make
his plnce.
The following will be the Royal lineup: Smith, back; Hoult. Movd. Marcon. Stacey. three-quarters: Saunders,

Kick-off at 2:30 o'clock.
The Hovers will leave for Ladner at
noon today wbere they -will meet
'Westham LBland ln the first round of
tbe National cup.
Several of the Royals are laid up
-witb injuries and their chances of winning were not over-bright, last even-
However, a draw at least should be
coming to them and once emerging
from this round, they should be strong
contenders^tor the trophy.

"Just wall until we get on oiir own
ice and we will show the othit two
teams in the league that ihe Royals
are stronger than ever," stated Manager Jimmy Gardner to the News yesterday while taking a stroll around
the neW arena at Queen's Park.
This,was tlje flrat time that the
eaptaimnianager, of tbe Westminster
Hockey tann Sat a ���*-******>* pf taking,
s view of the situation and he feels
woll pleased with conditions at ths
coming rink.
"Witb' the addition of Charlie Tobln
and Eddie Oatman," he continued, "I
firmly telleve we have a stronger
team than we had last year. Oatman
is ten times the player Sue McLean
was last season, and Oatman, when
���once he gets. Into ovr style of plsy
will more than break even with Barry
Hyland./ .    .
"At tne' rresent time we are handicapped bv having to go ower to Vancouver every} noon and practice-for
an hour on their rink. We only, have
from one to two o'clock -and it H a
���-Tiard proposition to get Into rati hank
condition under tfte circumstances.
"When once the Westminster arena

practice between nine and ten In the

time to get attended to before junch.
������Johnson ls fast rounding Into Uhape
while Lehman Is out every day and

that he got.his eye In," went on the
crafty manager of the HvftJm, "and
during the next two weeks, we will)
atrike our laat aaaaon'a etride which
the Vancouver or Victoria teams cannot overcome."
All the players are beginning to get
their feet in tbe city and Btate tbey
are well pleased with their new surroundings. They are showing every
desire to mix with the people and are
making many friends during the short
time they have been In their habitation.
Gardner dropped a good one yesterday morning while, leaning over the
fence surrounding tbe famous lacrosse
oval at Queen's Park:
"So tbls Is where the Salmon Bellies clean up Vancouver and the
Eastern lacrosse team, eh?" said he.
"Wby, they were telling me back East
this summer that Dun Clark used to
lose sight of hls opponent In goal at
lhe other end of the field owing to
the heavy dip In the field. For my
part I do not see where the advantage

who has written to Vancouver for data

He visited Vancouver recently, and
was very favorably Impressed with
the local arena, and Immediately upon his return south interested several
prominent people of that city in the
proposition to establish an artificial

Seattle financiers are also considering the advisability of constructing a

Great Flnanceers Says Such a Monopoly Is Impossible���On Stand for
Five  Hours.
Washington, Dec. "20.���J.; Pierpont
Morgan today told the money trust
Investigation committee of the house,
that "all the money ln Christendom
and all the banks In Christendom''
could not form a monopoly that would
control money. Mr. Morgan disclaimed any knowledge that be wielded a
vast power In modern finance, and
declartd emphatically that he sought
no such power.
For nearly five hoars the chief witness called by the committee In lu
probe of the Intricacies of tbe modern finance stood- a running flre of
questions that covered every phase of
financial operation:
Mr. Morgan gave at length his views
on competition, combination, co-operation and control In Industry and finance, particularly tbe latter. He
declared that he "did not mind com;
petition," but tbat he preferred "combination" In his Operations. He was
emphatic In ht�� " ftefciaratlon thai
'there is no way one man'can get a
monopoly of money."

"AS    YOU    LIKE   IT."
Always ln the front rank of thn
moving picture theatres of the lower
mainland, the enterprising management of the Edison has secured fresn
from the hands of tbe makers a, film
of great educational worth.
The play Is entitled "As You Like
It," and, according to the advance notices is one that will give all those
wbo witness It a lesson Tn brave goodnature, patience and toleration. In
addition lt ls a sylvan cure of softening eftect for "glooms" growing out of
oppression and Injustice,
All readers of Shakespeare are well
acquainted with this piece. The story
was built on an old oue called "Itosa-
lynd," which tells of a knlgbt, who-being at the point of deatb, commended
two younger sons to the care of the
eldest. The latter's selfishness set
the youngest adrift In a wood where
his manliness was called out and thai
quality .regained the wealth and position he had lost, wltb a splendid Wife
Into the bargain.
From this frail basis the famous
English writer evolved the plot of a
charming comedy in a language and
style only known to hlm. He felt out
the soul of nature very much as the
camera does In skilled hands wher
focussed by artistic taste, and on this
account the play lends Itself to attractive presentation on the screen.   '
Tonight will be the last chance to
see the present show that holds the
boards at the Royal theatre, lt is one
of the most entertaining programs
that has been presented ln that

' Catchy music, graceful dancing, oc
casional witticisms, and costumes thai
looked like a moving picture of Fifth
avenue on Eastern Sunday, about de
scribes "The Hose of Panama," which
was produced for the delectation and
amusement of local playgoers at tbe
opera house yesterday evening.. Th'.'
musical comedy did bot break any tra
di tlons by having a visible or cohesive
plot, but no one ever minds.
As a natural mlithmaker, Roger
ttray, who impersonated a press eorre
���ipondeni at large In the Panama zone,
made a decided hit. HIb burlesque
dauclng was one of the funny features
of the evening. Richard Temple, wbo
portrayed an amorous president of a
revolutionary republic, and John R
Phillips, who doubled as a cowboy
(wearing puttees) and captain of the
<uanl, were .two other male members
deserving mention.
As the emotional Jacinto, Chapine
easily carried off the palm among the
fair sex, h.er singing and dancing be
<ng enhanced by rather clever acting.
Eveleen Dunmore, as the president's,
wife, pleased the audience, while Lucy
Monroe, a typist spy, had a captivating
manner that delighted the house as it
did the object of her stage wiles.
Some clever evolutions- were per
formed by the chorus, these furnish
ing a pleasing setting for the song
hits.- Ot th*** "Vou Cannot Blame me
for my Spanish Blood" (Chapine), an<<

Making History on the Turf.
Lore! Hastings is a very popular lie-
ure in the liriti.-h racinjr world, ami
'has maintained the tradition* of the
family in thin respect. As soon as he
attained his majority ho whs elected
a member of the Jockey Club, anil a*
he is a wealthy peer, he is eiialtled to
indulge in thia mont expensive ol sport
to the full.
For a time Lord Hasting* served
in the 7th Hussars, and is now in
the Reserve of Officers, and alao a cap
tain in the Norfolk Yeomanry. He is
the owner of over twenty thousand
acres, and has a handsale resilience
tin Norfolk, as well as one at Beaton
Delaval, in Northumberland. The latter property brings him in a consider
(able revenue, for it is situated in one
of the most important coal fields  in
,the country.
' The name of Hastings figures largely  in turf history owing to the  fact
that a former Lord Hastings was a
notorious plunger. He is reputed l>*
have    loat    two    hundred    thousand
.pounds when Hermit won tlie Derby.
[On the other hand, he once won eighty
thousand when a horse of liis mimed

Eagles Wlll Bs Used to Upset Aero-
plsnes In War.
As a result of the amazing success
of the aeroplane in recent military
manoeuvres in Europe, army experts
are busy trying to discover somo methods of spoiling the efficiency of airships aa spies. Several varieties of
gune have been invented for the purpose, but experiments have proved
that these inventions are of little
value, as it is more difficult, to hit a
flying airship than one would think.
Under present conditions apparently
an army must either flght aeroplanes
with aeroplanes or permit them to fly
aWay untouched after doing all the
harm they^can and after spying' ont
the army's dispositions. Even with
pursuing aeroplanes disaster is more
probable than success to the pursuer.
But it has been found that a very
slight injury to the driver of an aeroplane will destroy his oontrol nnd
���send him toppling to his death. The
late Galbraith Rogers, a very brilliant
aviator, is said to have met his death
because a seagull accidentally flew
aeainst him and disturbed his control
of his machine, lf such a modest-
sized bird as a seagull could wreck
an aviator, what could an eagle do?
The Swiss eagle ia a very powerful
���bird. The French aviation officers
stationed at Nice, which is within a
few miles of the Alpine home of eagles,
hnve trained six great eagles to fight
the soldier aviator. The officers have
constructed machines resembling aero,
.planes in shape, but supported, hy
balloons. To these they attach chickens, mice and all sorts of live prey
thnt Ule eaeles love.
The aeroplane balloons are then sent
.up. and the eagles are let loose. With
fierce cries snd flapping of their wings
they attack an aeroplane and tear the
living prey from it. In their eagerness
they light one another, and the aeni.
plane is sometimes turned upside
down in their struggles. It is incon.
ceivable that any men in an aeroplane, eveu if there were Ihree or four
oi tliem, could retain control of their
machine in face of such an attack.
No one who has watched an eagle
only on the ground can have any conception of it power. The bird is at
a disadvantage on the ground, because
it waa made to fly at.d not to walk,
and because it docs not develop the
full power nf its tremendous wings
until it has had space in which to
work them. But in its natural realm,
the upper sir. an eagle will be capable of upsetting any flying machine.
The eagles are capable of pursuing
an aeroplane to any height, and following it to any distance. Any gun is
practically useless against an aero
plane which lias risen above Hve hundred yards, ond. of course, the bullet
cannot pursue an object after it lias
once missed its mark.

,, Murderers.
.Jhe,',man who murdered Inspector
Wells at Eastbourne recently left !>e-
liiiil him a fawn-colored Trilby hat.
Stamped on the leather inside it was
th^ word "Kelvington," while a piece
of paper stuck inside the hat was
inscribed "No. 56. H.062. P|6." Two
letters which resemhle "K" written
backwards and a "P ' were alao on
the paper.
Slight as sueh a clue is, the probability is that whoever fired the fatal
shots will be brought to justice
through it.
In the Black Museum at Sootland
Yard is a black felt wideawake hat
which brought its owner to the gallows for tha murder of a policeman
named Cole.
, This oase was almost an exact parallel o! the Eastbourne tragedy. Con-
stable Cole, on the night'of Dec. I,
1883. while on duty in Ashwin Street,
Dalston, saw a man named Orrock in
the act of olambering over the low
wall in front of a Baptist chapel that
faced the street.
He demanded the man to give an
account of himself, and endeavored
to arrest him. In the struggle which
followed the miscreant drew a revolv3r
and shot the policeman dead.
One of the clues the murderer left
behind when he fled was the black
wideawake hat. When Orrock was
captured it proved to be one of the
strongest clues against him, for it tit-
ted him perfectly.
The first railway carriage murderer,
Franz Muller, was captured hy mean*
of the hat he left behind. Muller robbed ami murdered a bank cashier
p*med llriggs, afterwards throwing lm
'��� victim on the Hne close to Victoria
i I'ark, where he was found.
Underneath one of the seats of the
I carriage in which the murder was
committed was found a soft felt hat.
Thn hat did not fit the victim's head,
and it was the only one fniind. It
was pretty oertain that it was the mur.
derer.'s, but the question arose "What
,had become of Mr. Brigg's hat?"
It was soon discovered thst the hat
found iri the carriage had been bought
at a hatter's in Marylebone. Within
a short time a cabman came firward.
identified the hat, and swore he had
bought it for a man named Muller.
Mu.'ler was arrested on landing at
New York, where he had fled on the
Victoria, a sailing vessel. At llie
time of his capture he was nctuallv
wearing Mr. Brigg'a hat, cut dowu
and slightly altered.
Being listless got a' man named
Toussaint fifteen years' ix>nal servitude. Ho was seen one morning iu
I8oG to he running down the York

secured him a well-deserved punUli-
