Italians    Chase    and   Sink
Sultan's Gunboats.
Flotilla    Carried    Contraband    Goods
Destined for Troops at Iteman,
Rome, Jan. 12.���The Turkish gunboats carrying contraband goods destined for the Turkish troops ln the
province of Iteman, Arabia, were
sighted and pursued by Italian war-
One ot the Italian battleships
opened flre at long range, singing two
of the gnnboats. The flve other Turkish gunboats were overhauled after
a two hours' pursuit, and made a
futile attempt to give battle. The engagement lasted for one hour, but
the guns of the Italian battleships
finally sank the Turkish craft. The
Turks took to the lifeboats. The number of the casualties Is not stated.
After the gunboats sank the Italians discovered an armed Turkish
yacht endeavoring to escape. It was
chased and Anally captured.
Many Turks are believed to have
perished in the fight that preceded
the sinking of their warships, and
many more undoubtedly went down
with the ships.
No Italians were injured In the
The Turkish gunboats had beea
eluding the Italians for weeks, carrying Immense quantities of arms, ammunition and food supplies to the
Turkish  troops in  Arabia.
Leading   Parts  Are  Well  Acted,  But
Marguerite   Was  Coli���Play.
Was Well Staged.
"Faust" Is a play whicb makes considerable demands upon three players
at least. Mephlsto, Faust and Mar-
; ..t-.it��; must be In good hands or
tue play wlll fall. It did not fail last
ii..-..ni at. the opera house because
hanford Dodge as Mephlsto. the spirit
i>f evil, and Edmond Kox as the devil's
victim and instrument, Faust, both
j.a.e readings of their parts that
bi.oite an understanding of the play
aud a sufficient sense oi the dramatio
tu make the great satire convincing
lo the public. Miss A delle Nickerson
as Marguerite was not really as good
as eitner of these. She played her
pait quietly, but with too little feel-
lng, and her rather strong voice hardly suited the simple love-led village
maiden, on whom falls all the burdeu
of the devil's mocking sport, And of
fraust's wild barter of his soul for ihe
sweets of life. - "All tbe burden" has
been written, but to let it ataad wouid
be to misread tbe full lesson of the
play. For on Faust himself the punishment, though less open, falls more
hopelessly, helplessly Intimate and
Ironical. His love destroys the one
he loves; it ls through him she loses
innocence and life. With a soul to
recognize his sin he cannot make
amends, and he must perforce atand
aside (haling to atone, but bound by
his devilish bond, the slave of the
spirit ot evil.
Sanford Dodge as Mephlsto ga��o a
clever reading of tbe part As tempter and mocker, as cynical heartless
liend, stirring emotions but to scoff
them, playing on human sentiments
and weaknesses for his wanton
amusement alone, he did not fall with
change of tone, and shifting manner
ta give a true portrayal of the devlL
It was ln the more melodramatic
scenes, where he should be terrible,
that he failed to impress. But it may
be long before those who heard it
wlll forget his wicked, taunting laugh,
the Satanic sign of mirth, wltn
which ha greeted the idly vaporing
sentiments of'his victims, aad their
helpless flutterings to escape.
Faust was also well acted. Mr. Vox
was a handsome lover for hia Marguerite with a rich voice, and some
command of emotion, while Mr.
Castle made a very efficient Valentine. Marguerite, as has been hinted,
Called to be sufficiently Innocent befoie her fall, and waa never sufficiently stricken with her guilt
The staging of the piece was excellent, the scenes of flre and transformation being well carried out Tbe
Bracken scene was quite a triumph
of the "horrors." and that "blasted
heath" must truly have appeared horrible to conscious-stricken Faust,
while the duel scene, In which
Mephlsto kills Valentine, waa Very
impressively produced.
Warrant for Grain Man,

$60,000 cf the company's funds.

Mr. Weart Fires Last .Shot in  Fight
that Promises Victorious End���
Polling Today.
Reeve Weart closed his campaign
last evening at tha Dundonald school
bouse, where he gave a resume of
the policy and the work of his administration during the past year. De
spite the difficulties of travel toe
-school was well filled.
The reeve said: "The campaign
closes this evening, and most of you
know the platform I am running on.
This section of tbe municipality has
experienced a growth in population
during the past year. You need better roads, and, if I am elected, no
section will be favored to the detri-!
ment of another. The passage of the
by-laws will determine the extent of
the improvements ln all thc wards.
"While serving you for one year
as your reeve, my work has only begun. My ambition Is to put my brain
and energy to work in the best Interests of Burnaby.
"1 stand for   the   letting   of road
work by big contracts, when it will
work for the be3t and most economi- !
cal    accomplishment.     The    trouble |
with  the British  Columbia    Electric i
Railway company, as I have always ���
said, will have to be adjusted judici-
ously.    My part played ln the perfec- !
tion of your water system will    be
mare appreciated  by  you at a later
day. I
"I am progressive, and I want   to
make Burnaby progressive and  modern.    My  policy   has  been,  and    always will be, to administer the affairs .
���of Burnaby In a businesslike way. If <
you  return  me  to  the reeve's  chair I
you may look for a year of continued
success  ln    directing    your    govern- j
ment. We must measure to the stride
of the natural progress that this community Is now making."
While Mr. Weart is not of the sort
who gives out pre-election statements,
he appears to be well pleased at the
interest shown at his meetings, which
commenced at Central Park on the
evening of January 2. Since then h"
has addressed large gatherings in all
ithe wards, and a'so ln Vancou'er.
The contest has been at times a Utile
warm. At times the opposition t*ttn
made unfounded 1 statements, but
these appeared to have IltCe effect
on the present reeve, who answered
them all to the satisfaction of those
present at the meetings. Never before bas such interest been shown fn
an election in Burnaby, and the result will be eagerly watched for
when the ballots are counted this

Berlin, Jan. 12.���A general election
is being held throughout the German
empire today to choose members of

founding of modern Germany and
raiely has greater importance attached to the result.
"Anything to beat tbe Reds."
"Anything to beat the Black-Blue

With these rallying cries of the
clericals, known as the "centre," the

groups on one side, and the National
Liberals, Progressives and Socialists
on the other, one of the most strenu

The widespread dissatisfaction over
tbe policy of the government in tho
Moroccan negotiations, a dissatisfaction which left it apparently without
a single friend in the Reichstag, and
the great increase in the coat of tue

heavily u;on the wagewoikers and
an persons of small incomes, have
cieaied a situation in which tbe most
acute lolltical prophets flnd themselves at a loss tq predict the piob-
able result at the polls.

Peking, Jan. 12.���The Manchu
princes of the imperial clan resolved
today to advise the thrcne to retire
immediately to Jehol, about 120 miles
to the northeast of Peking, where
the members of the imperial family
have usually gone during the summer.
The whole of the Imperial army at

Speech from the Throne Foreshadows
Introduction  of  Important
Ratepayers' Committee    Meets   with
Favorable Reception from Representative of B. C. E. R.
Fuel Famine Threaten* Fra*
' ���
Bound Chicago.
A street car line for Agnes street
was the subject of an interview beid
yesterday afternoon between a committee of the Agnes Street Ratepayers' association and Mr. Conway,
of the B. C. E. R.: The meeting was
held in tho council ball, and lt U
understood tbat the company's repre
sen'tatlve looked very favorably ou
the proposition submitted to him.
The scheme outlined at the conference was that a line should be uuilt
from Columbia street up Tenth street
to Agnes, and along Agnes to Duffertn
street.   There it would turn north to
Royal avenue to connect   with   the
present city line!   lt is believed tbat
as a result of this new line the present congestion at Leopold place would
be gieatly  relieved.    It would, however, entail a large expenditure   of
money by the company, as the track
to be laid would measure a mile or
more.    Mr. Conway also left tbe im-:
pressicn that the B. C. E. R. would
be unlikely  to  consider  the project
unless the street was widened, as he j
seemed to consider that a width   of,
60 feet was not enough for a    first |
class business street.
No definite decision could be reached at this one meeting, but Mr. Conway told the committee that he would
send an engineer over the street to
take the grades, so that he could
know how practicable the scheme
might be. It was considered that, cn
the face af it, the scheme is an excellent one.

The Australian defence system,
coupled with compulsory training, has
boen fairly launched throughout the
commonwealth. It follows the lines
laid down by Viscount Kitchener as
regards the land service and the
plans of Sir Reginald Henderson for
the sea force, ln the budget proposed by Prime Minister Fisher at Melbourne last month a total outlay of
$22,915,000 ls proposed for military
and naval purposes, including $1,000,-
000 to be paid to the Imperial Government under the naval agreement, and
$7,576,000 toward the construction of
the Australian fleet unit.
Altogether 153,637 youths between
the ages of fourteen and eighteen
have been registered as liable for tho
military service. Of these 102,194
have been examined and 95,772 passed ae medical fit. At the end of September 87,389 lads were actually under military training. Observers

had a somewhat vague sense- of Its

He was the greatest soldier of his
age, and there have been few greater in any age. He was a free thinner
in religious matters, which is to say
that he had no religion, though he
lived long enough to comprehend tho
importance of encouraging religion
among his people. He believed ln
plain living:, but his kitchen cost him
$9000 a year, ao that none of his dependents starved. As a financier and
economist he was probably a little
ahead of his age. What is more, he
waa the friend, counsellor and patron
ot Voltarle, and whatever one mar
think of that crafty, meddlesome, cynical and ribald philosopher and poet,
there is no doubt that he accomplished much good ln the world, helped to
make, life better worth living, encouraged independent thinking, stimulated literary taste and effectually rebuked Injustice and superstition.

Ctifaposes ' 8? Wight '
A gentleman visitor to London was,
during the night, awakened by weird
strains of ghostly music. He sat up
in bed and listened, net displeased,
despite the interruption of his slumbers. The music was low, lilting,
snd full of charm. Presently it ceased and the listener slept. Next morning he mentioned the experience to
the friend with whom he was staying.
"Oh," jaid the friend, "that was Mr.
Pelissier. He lives just a little lower
down the road. We oiten hear him at
nights. If an idea enters his head
while he is in bed, he jumps out and
makes straight for the piano and tries
it over."
Dreads Friday.
Mme. Ctara Butt confesses to being
rather superstitious, especially about
Fridays. She says: "I suppose it is
foolish, but I am sfraid of leaving
town on Friday to take a long journey. I avoid it il I can. When I
sailed for Australia from Tilbury on
a Friday I made our whole party go
down the day before and go on the
boat. We remained all night at the
hotel, so that I could feel we left
London on the Thursday, people chaffed me, but I felt happier about it."
Tall Peeresses.
Lady Galway and the'Marchioness
of Ripon phave the distinction of being the tallest peeresses. The occult
fascinates Lady Galway, who is able
to tell some "sreepy" tales of which
she herself is the heroine. She has
written prose, poetry, awl plays, and
is also an excellent platform speaker.

Policy   and
It is high time that a friend and
know* attnantn-efrbome j-ul* ahould
address to the leaders of the Nationalist party a word of warning and remonstrance. They have Just sanctioned a proceeding which their supporters in Great Britain can only regard with amazement aud dismay and
their -opponents in Ulster with malicious 'satisfaction. One cf tbe most
formidable objections to home rule
is the fear that the permanent agricultural and Industrial Interests of
Ireland will be sacrificed to "politics,"
personal animosities, and sectional
pressure, lt ought to be one of the
objects of the Nationalists to combat
this apprehension and demonstrate
its hollowness. They bave, instead,
taken a course which lends it a sinister Justification.
Of all the many agencies of regeneration that are building up what is
nothing less than a new Ireland, there
was none which more Impressed the
members of the Eighty Club during
tbeir  recent   tour,  and  none  which
opened up a new and nbn-contehtious
I sphere for united effort. It' was the
flrst movement that suggested to the
Irish mind that the work in Ireland
could achieve wbat agitation and politics at Westminster could not. Its
success and the spirit of self-help It
1 was founded on led directly to the
Recess committee, and so the formation of the department of agriculture,
the youngest and by far the most useful of all official institutions in Ireland. All the movements Indeed that
are today seeking constructive ends
by non-political nnd non-sectarian
routes derive the impulse that has
alone made them possible from the
gospel of self-reliance preached by the
co-operators. It Is the solitary public
enterprise ln Ireland that foreigners
study, not as a warning, but as a
guide and example.
Necessity of Its Success.
i There are two reasons wby the development of co-operation is today
more than ever necessary to the
greatest ot all Irish industries. One
ls that the department of agriculture
can only achieve its best results lf it
Is enabled to work with farmers, not
as Isolated individuals, but as organ-
��� lzed   bodies.      The   other,   and   far
{for momentous reason is that the
ultimate security for the repayment
of the loan of seme ��200,000,000 will
have to be advanced tor land purchase ts thecapaclty of the Irish far-
I mer and   his Irish  peasant  to   make
agriculture pay.    The whole success
ofjthe land-purchase policy rests fun- j
dtmen tally on that.   But there ls not
an economist anywhere who   would '
not dectate that in the peculiar eir-'
1 cumstances ot Ireland co-operation is '
essential   to   the   stability   and   pros-
I perity ot the new order   of   peasant 1
proprietors.    Without It their future
is of tbe gravest peril.
Now, nothing   has  done   more   to
that ^he new congested districts
board- should employ Sir Horace's society to spread co-operation through
the west, where it 1* most needed;
he has unceasingly sought to discredit its operations, and particularly Its
Invaluable Raiffelsen banks; 'and he
has threatened lt with official competition, backed by all the resources of
hls department.
His latest exploit, with the help of
tbe United Irish league, is to produce
from tbe Irish council of agriculture
a vote adverse to the claim of the cooperative movement for a grant from
the development fund. And the paradox bf it ls that during the past five
years we English Liberals have made
It a foremost part of our rural program to encourage co-operation ln
England. It was one of the objects
expressly aimed at in the small holdings act, and the development commissioners have already made grants
to both the English and Scotch co-operative societies. Yet it is under a
Liberal regime that agricultural cooperation in Ireland, where lt ls not
merely desirable but a vital necessity,
so far from being fostered, ls deliberately harassed and obstructed.
Cannot the Nationalists leaders be
made to realize tbat their policy in
this matter is being watched by their
English sympathizers with increasing
anxiety and-distrust, and ls seriously
damaging the cause of home rule?���

Discusses interesting Question.
On   Thursday,   says   the    London
Times, we published a telegram from
our Ottawa correspondent stating that
enquiries made by Colonel Hughes.
| Minister of Militia, revealed the fact
' that nearly all the swords imported
Into Canada are of German make.

England and in Amei lea than the per-, have avoiled all trouble and difficult:
sistency with which the Irish Nationalists    have    striven  to cripple   and
thwart   the   co-operative   movement.
Their objections to it are three-fold���
personal,   political  and  trale.      The
personal objection is simply that Sir
Horace Plunkett originated the movement and still directs It.   As a Union-!
1st or quasl-Unlonist, as a man of hu- j
mor, the Nationalists flnd him highly '
obnovlous.   Then, again���and this isi
their political objection���they resent'
the building up of an organization of' parts
nearly 100,000 farmers on a non-partisan basis and for non-political ends.
It looks suspiciously like an attempt
to   regenerate   Ireland   from within,
land their case has always been that
if they had adopted the obvious and
simple course of writing to the War
j Office in London for the names of the
! British   firms   who   manufacture  the
I swords supplied to the army and ob-
'taining the swords direct from them.
That has been dene by otber colonial

j Your Ottawa correspondent   says    it
! was discovered tbat in some   cases
of the swords, though of Ger
man make, were put together in England.   It is the practice of some dealers ln swords Id this country to buy
the  parts abroad, to   put  them   to
gether, and to sell them here or ex-
home rule alone can effect that mlr-.port  them as British  made swords,

Finally, there is tbe trade   objec-
tion or the objection, to put   lt moro
accurately, of the Small country trad-
tion. Mt ls the most vital and constructive achievement that stands to
the credit of aay Irishman of our
time. Sir Horace was the flrst to see
the' need of co-operation in Ireland
and the flrst to preach and apply it.
A quarter of a century ago he, alone
among his countrymen, perceived that er.   it is easy enough to understand
so long as the Irish farmer remained
an Isolated unit while hi* European
and Transatlantic rival* were banding themselves Into organized, pliant
and cohesive trusts, so long as he
(continued to buy in the dearest and
sell In the cheapest market, to live
from hand to mouth without capital
or credit or any chance ot getting
any, and to place himself at the
mercy of the middlemen and the railways, he was inevitably bound to lose
why he is opposed to co-operation. As
middleman, he buys the farmer's products at the cheapest rate and supplies them with agricultural requirements at the dearest. As money-lender, he advances them loans on more
than Asiatic terms; as   publican, he
officers individually from dealers"and
outfitters are swords the parts ot
which have been made abroad and
put together ln this country. This
can be avoided by officers going direct to British manufacturers for
their swords, instead of to dealers
and outfitters."
The telegram from our Ottawa correspondent was also brought before

all comprehensively known ai
"Money bills" ��� are in future to be
subjected to a sper#Sl treatment.
"Bill"'is, by the way, a word used
ever since the time of Henry VL to
describe the "law Which the Commons
want in the form they want it."
When next a Money bill is passed
by the House of Commons, it will be
the Speaker's duty to certify that It
is truly a Money bill, and nothing
more, and thereupon it will go to the
House of Lords, which House is
given one month to consider what it
will do. As a matter of fact, it is
practically Hobson's choice. For if the
Lords do not pass the bill unaltered
within one month, the Commons are
entitled to send it straightway to bis
Majesty for royal assent.
There is, however, a provision which
enables tjie Commons to extend the
month's grace, if they think flt to accept any amendment* proposed by
the Lords, '   ������
Naturally, considerable responsibility is thrown upon the Speaker in having to decide whether or uot a bill is
technically a Money bill, and he ia
therefore to have the assistance of
two M.P.'s specially chosen at the
beginning of each session to help him.
But it is only regarding Money bills
that this short shrift is given to the
Lords. Other bills will follow a different course.
This is whst will happen under the
new act. A bill���not a money bill-
having passed through the House of
Commons, will be sent to the Lord*
in the ordinary way. If the LoruS accept it unaltered, or both Houses
agree to alterations, well and good���
the act is passed. But if the Lords
reject it, then ther? is an end of the
matter for that session. Next session
the Commons may pass the same bill
again, and a second time the Lords
may reject it.
In yet a third session the Common-
may pass that bill; but thi* is the last
opportunity the Lords will have, (or if
they reject ^he bill for a third time.
it is to be presented to His Majesty
for the royal assent. Here again the
Speaker's certificate is required���thi?
rime to the effect that the Lords have
had three opportunities of accepting
tlie bill, but have rejected it rich
time. If the Lords am��nd the bill and
then pass it. and the Commons do
r.ot accept the alterations, the bill is
to be regai\L.:l cs having bc?n rejected

Dogfish Do Not Feed on Lobsters.
It lias long been accepted iu Nova
Scotia that the dogfish fed to a con
siderable extent upon the lobster, but
an investigation made not long since
by scientific men at the rendering
works at Clark's harbor showed cou
cltislvely that such Is not the case. Of
the millions of dogfish put through the
crusher oue only allowed Ihe presence
of lobster, and that wus a small piece.
The dogfish swarm ordinarily near the
surface and eat nothing but what they
first snap Into morsels; therefore It Is
difficult to Imagine how they could do
(his with the lobster In full armor. Although Ihe dogfish is a great pest and
destroys thousands of dollars' worth
Of tish, there were no Indications that
they feed to any extent od lobsters.
On the other hand, the investigation
allowed that the skate, which is only
i ground fish, was very destructive of
this particular kind of shellfish.���Consular Report
Importance of Camphor.
The agricultural department has boen
making numerous experiments in the
growth of camphor trees and bas dually announced that these oriental trees
can be successfully grown In Florida.

The Importance of this wlll not be appreciated until It ls understood that
camphor is one of the important Ingredients of smokeless powder and
that Japan has practically a monopoly

An Aged Minister.
Probably the oldest officiating minister of nny denomination is Rev. Alfred Brandon, who though he is just
past his ninety-fifth birthday, still
preaches at least once a montli In
the little creeper-clad Baptist chapel
near his home in Drayton Gardens,
Chelsea. Mr. Rrandon has been a
minister in Chelsea sixty-four years,
and has lived there seventy-two. A
remarkable fact concerning Sir. Brandon is that he has been a cripple
sines he was a baby of two. when
one of his legs became paralyzed.
Another wonderful Baptist minister is
Uev. Grey Hazlerigg, who. although
ninety-three years oi age, is still engaged in ministerial work in Leices
ter. in which town he has lived and
worked for a period of sixty-one years.
A City of Philosophers.
The famous Dr. Samuel Johnson
was born in Litchfield, to which town
he once paid a tremendous compliment. He had taken Bo.well on h
visit to  Litchfield.
"I found," writes Boswell. "two
strange manufactures for so inland a
place, sail cloth ar.d streamers for
ships, and I observed them making
some Saddlecloths and dressing sheepskins. But upon the whole the husy
hand of industry seemed to be quite
slackened. 'Surely, sir,' said I, 'you
are an idle set of people.' 'Sir,' said
Johnson, 'we are a city of philosophers. We work with our heads and
make the boobies of Birmingham work
for us with their hands'."
Plli Nuts.
Pili nuts are two to two and one-
half inches long and triangular in
shape, with three ridges. They are
brown and have a shell that is very
hard to break. The meat is of a cream
color and quite delicious. At the present time these nuts are not used for
commercial purposes, but are eaten by
the natives of the Straits Settlements.
King Breeds Pigs.
King George takes special pride in
breeding black pigs, and has reared a
particular breed which brings him in a
nice little sum ol money annually.
