Domestic Group at New Year's Dinner
When Heavy Timber Crashes
Through Roof.
Burnaby, Jan. 2.���Yesterday afternoon a falling tree crashed through
tbe roof of the house of Mr. Arthur
H. Smith. Husband and wife, with
their four children, were partaking of
their New Year's dinner, hbout four
o'clock, ln their home at Ravine
park, near Jubilee station, when a
huge tree, felled by two men nearby,
crashed through the wooden structure, resulting ln tbe death of Mrs.
Smith and seveiely bruising the husband and some of the children.
. Immediately after the occurrence,
Messrs. Dickson and Mlntle, the men
who had felled the tiee, ran to tlie
.house, accompanied by Mr. T. Weld-
man, who had witnessed the accident.
They found the house smashed to
splinters and the human inmates
lying amid the remains of what had   trip I believe that many settlers from

Mr.    Stuart    Wade    Has   Confidence
that His Trip Will  Have Concrete Results.
Mr. Stuart Wade, secretary of the
board of trade, is hard at work getting matters at the board rooma into
shape after hls long absence. Ho
was, however, able to spare a few
minutes to talk about the results
which he expects to get from his publicity trip tbrough the United States.
"I expect many thousands to come
and at least see British Columbia
with a view to settlement. I found
the people most Interested ln the
Kootenay, Boundary and Okanagan
districts, but the large proportion
was anxious to come through to the
coast." Exact figures, of course, are
Impossible to give, but Mr. Wade's
private Impression Is that about 2000
will visit tbe Kootenays, 2000 the
Fraser valley, nnd 400 or 500 Vancouver Island before next Christmas.
Ignorance of the province of British Columbia, its conditions and Its
possibilities Mr. Wade found everywhere.
"The utter want of knowledge regarding the Pacific coast, which prevails on the Atlantic sea-board, was
astonishing, but as a result of   this
been their pretty bome. Mrs. Smith
was terribly mangled. She was placed
upon a stretcher and carried to the
bome of Mr. Peter Lambert, where
she was attended by Dr. Walter L.
Laird.    She died a shoit time later.

plumes herself on a record Installation of light*- The system of street
lighting ef the municipality, numbering 117 lights, Is expected to be completed wfthta a. St* days.
At the end ef last week SB lights

up owing to' some uncertainty as to
the location of poles on tlie North

whole of the work would have been
finished within the time specified ln
the contract, which waa the end of

It Is Bald that this establishes a

were at Chicago. This action very
soon convinced those Interested, that
the statements made by the provincial officers were based on facts."
With his trip as a whole Mr. Wade
was naturally delighted. Besides the
above results in the agricultural field,
be believes that several Industrie
and manufactuilng interests have hai
their eyes directed towards New-
Westminster and Vancouver. These
results may be delayed ia their accomplishment a little, but he has
faith that they are ensured. "As for

"in my own op.nlon the St. Paul

The Chicago show was given a
more elaborately decorative effect
than that at New York by the Introduction of large photographs, and

other agricultural products. At St.
Paul, however, Canada was barred,
api ifhls difficulty had to be overcome
by hiring a .store, where a similar
exhibition to that held at Chicago
was displayed. "An electric sign
drew everybody's attention to British
Columbia's free .exhibit, and handbills were distributed from door to
door, nnd outside the Union depot lh
the morning hours and inside the
exposition building for the rest of

every visitor waa a man who meant
business, and was anxious for info**

and, what Is more, was bringing another man with him.

iow was the first to desert. The
remaining troops followed their ex

stationed at Kwang fcu was aUay

Dissatisfaction was spread among
the imperial troops by the inability
of tbe Manchu government to pay
them, and this feeling is extending
throughout the army of the northern
provinces. Agents of tbe proclaimed
republic succeeded in getting with
ln the ranks of the troops there, and
by promising the soldiers teguiar
pay, plotted the wholesale desertions.
Peace In Sight
Nanking, Jan. 2.���"China will soon
be peaceful." said Dr. Sun Yat Sen,
newly-elected president of the Chin'
ese republic, here today, discussing
the future of his war-rent country.
"Military government will be necessary for the present, but within a
few weeks I expect to see the country
in such a condition that a return to
civil rule wlll be possible. Our dlffl
oulties have been greatly simplified
because the entire imperial army bas
become republicanized since the
declaration ot tke armistice. Now
only two divisions are loyal to the
old order of things, and lt is likely
that these will Join us soon."

Aldermanic candidate! were thick
upon tbe ground at the meeting
organized by the labor men and helu
last night in Johnston's hall, Sapperton. Mr. Alexander Garrett was ln
the chair, and he gave permission to
all candidates not standing oa the
labor ticket to speak tor five minutes
only, ap opportunity of whloh Messrs
Minthorne, Hardman and Travers
took advantage. Labor nominees
spoke as long as they liked.
The chairman opened the meeting
with some general remarks on a progressive policy, and ie manent improvements for the city of New
Westminster, and then went on to
criticize the water supply and the
handling of the Coquitlam dam question ln more detail. "He wouldn't,"
be said, "take a drink from right
where the intake is" at certain times
ot the year, when the water is low
ln the fall for example. "The dam
end will be the dead end of the lake
forever," and he maintained that the
B. C. E. R. Bhould be made to carry
the pipe Une to the best water In
tbe lake. As for tbe water main, lt
was nothing but a 'spr.nk.ing system," and should be attended to.
Mr.  Turnbull.
After making these remarks Mr.
Garrett called on Mr. Turnball to
address the meeting. That gentleman thought tbat ln the past the
policy of the councll had been to
assist ca[ ital and to avoid taxing
land values. A change, however, ha:l
been made during the last year owing to the agitation of the working
men, and a flrst steo had been take.:
when   taxation    had   been
cy   of   development,
but as Ions' as the present system
pievalied, lie did not see bow any
development could better the condi
tions in the home of the laboring
man. They would rather make them
worse, bringing, as they would, slums
at one end and millionaires at the
other. Therefore they must chango
the system. The labor men were jus;
as much interested in real progres
slve development of New Westminster as anybody, in fact "the working
people are the progressive people ol
tbe city and the ctty should be run
in their interests." -
Mr. Hardman.
After this the flve minute allowances were told out; the first dose be
lng given to Mr. Hardman. This
campaigner thought that too mucn
was being paid by the citizens for
water and light. What he wanted tn
know was why they did not tax
"the fellow ln the old country," and
he advocated that every vacant lot
be forced to pay a minimum tax for
light and water.
Mr. Minthorne.
Mr. Minthorne managed to get a
number of points into his space of
time. Mayor Lee's program was flne,
he thought, but If It took that gentle
man as long to carry out bis program
as lt did to formulate it, it would
be a thousand years old before it was
completed. The barbor scheme was
a very important matter; bat why, he
asked, should it be kept secret ? He
understood from some people that tt
meant widening Front street to 100
feet, while others told him that it
entailed the building of a harbor at
Richmond. If the latter were t rue,
the people should be given a chance
to rise in protest against it Ono
more point was raised by the speaker,
wbo condemned the policy of paying
178,000 for a high school Site.   The
Sy owned Tlpperary aad ne alts, he
d, could be. more suitable for the
purpose than that.
Mr. Trsvere.
Mr. Joseph Travers then ness to
make hts few remarks. He specified
that one of the Improvements he
would get carried through If elected
would be the permanent paving of Columbia street, and tbe laying of a
sidewalk along the tame street right
to the city boundary, and also ths
putting of Brunette etrsst Into good
shape as far as ths city boundary. Hs
proved himself to be another sap-
porter of cheaper light, and thought
tbat there should be spent on evsry
portion of ths city sn amount ot
money proportionate to the sum contributed by lt in taxes. English-
speaking people alone should be employed on city contracts, and thus
the money would be kept ln -the- elty
instead of going to Italy and Spain
and elsewhere.
i  Mr. Cameron.
The first labor candidate to speak
was Mr. Joseph Cameron, who claim*
ed to know something about the Coquitlam dan^ question owing to ids
having served on the council of that
mnntctp^I^M some years. He then
argued that Sat only ehbuld English-

Chinatown was thrown Into a sadden state of excitement last night,
when the tobacco and fruit store of
Mr. Em. Boureopolos, situated on the
B. C. E. R. tracks at the corner of
Kelly, Douglas' warehouse, was burned out. The alarm was flrst given by
the motorman of an outgoing interurban car, who cried to Mr. Murdoch

purpose of this article.
No one can deny that within' the
past fortnight a prominent change
hai taken place us regards the pub-j mal.e your
lie's attitude toward the Franco-tie.- appraisal on
man treaty, and this change has not
been favorable to the agreement. A:
the outset that agreement wus welcomed with a degree of satisfaction.
Public opinion was delighted with
the prospect of a French protectorate
in Morocco. To be sure, we were to
pay for that protectorate by malting
sacrifices in the Congo, but nobody
has any very' clear idea how much
they amounted to. The Congo is a
long way off, Moiocco near at hand,
and there were many who cared moro
for Morocco than for the Congo'.
Little by little this feeling has
changed, und the change must be attributed to the successive disclosures
now in one newspaper and now In an-
otlu r���of all the notes, replies, secret
are losing the Congo, for, after all,
two-thlrda of the Congo remain to
us, since we are to keep the Gabon
and the Upper Congo. Doubtless, communication between the two halves of
this splendid colony will be hampered
by the two tentacles Germany stretchout toward the Congo and the Ou-
bangul. But communication is nevertheless assured by the river Itself,
and it can be improved, not only bv
boat traffic on the Benoue, which remain. French, but by the railway
which will retain the right to build
across the ceded terrltoritlea.
It is therefore a manifest exaggeration to call the "abandon du Congo"
one more "abandon" added to tliose

ln any case, the negotiations must
be carried on with great tact, and
high-handed ineasuies must be avoided. The Spaniards are not only ii

the government should have made a
clean breast of it and given the committee the facts.
As each newly revealed document
teems to involve some new restriction of the rights of Fiance, the public became exasperated. Distrust
arose. Frenchmen asked themselves
how many other secret arrangement;)
were still hidden. Well, it appears
that tliere is nothing sticking to thc:
bottom. W'e can, therefore, discuss
the situation in its entirety. Let us
go back  to  the beginning.
In April, 1905, the kaiser bndeJ at
Tangiers.   after    lieslitating    several
hours���waiting   for   smoother   water,
tney say'.   No sooner had  he stepped
ashore than he delivered one of tliose
speeches that weie more of style then
than today.    With a sweeping gesture
he declared   iii grandiloquent   terms
that he would never allow a blow to
be struck at the integrity of the sultan's domains.    Abdul  Aziz was  proclaim! d  a client of  the empire and
I German   interests   in   Morocco    were
', given a place in the front rank among
j those     the     imperial     policy     was
I founded to def. nd in the world.    The
j Pap-Germanic  press   applauded   this
speech   vociferously   and   in   chorus,
I even coining a word for the occasion
: and   declaring   that   Germany   would .
never   permit  the  "Tunisitication"  of
Six years have passed.    Today the
Germans   formally   grant   France  the
protectorate   of   Morocco,   for,   whilj
the word   is not  contained   In   ths
agreement itself, it is used In the explanatory  letters,    it is the realization of a beautiful dream���the dream
Prevost  Paradoll sketched out In Lai
France Nouvi lie���the dream <��� ilonials '-
h ul long cherished and whose fulfilment they burned to see,   An African

f j tainly, was a thing    worth the    winning. ���
li   was not to be hud for nothing,
and dermanj   gave   a new force   to
those words of Bismarck's, "Do yo i
think it a free gift?"    If we had waited  i few years, might we have gained
our   end   without   loosing   our  purse-1
strings or making any sacrifice whatever?    If the present cabinet had had
taore confidence in France, might  It '
have been able from the lirst to avoid
the excessive concessions that are so
painful  to own  up to now?    1  think;
it might.   That Is easy to say, not so
easy to prove.    Hut the real question ;
is not that.      it   is whether we are j
paying    too    dear���in    other "-words,
whether what we are giving up In the |
Congo  is  worth  more  than  what we
are gaining in Morocco.
The Congo question is complicated
by sentimental considerations, and I |
say this in no spirit of raillery. Mme.
Savorgennan de Brazza's letter, so restrained and dignified, had a tremendous effect, as was inevitable. There
Is no denying that there is something
Ivitter in reflecting that after all the
labor, all the "devotion, and all the
lives poor Braz'/a's enterprise cost,
the territories bought with French
blood are to bt handed over to Germany. But regret must not be carried
too Lir.    We must not sry ttat v.e
equatorial forests; others he think)
of only mediocre vatoe. All are unhealthy and dangerous for Europeans
to settle in. Said a Jocose Germ in
in the reichstag: "We have ac itilrel
the headquarters of the ileeping sick-
ness." At all evi nts I :r:,i convinced
that among those who Int i'i l hi ;'.i-

one who thinks it ns pre:ious .1 po*

rich In farming and mining possibilities, and wliich has the advantage of
being only forty-eight hours frcm

of the protectorate conceded u.s In

"Germany cedes us rights that were
never  hers."    That  is perfectly  true.
Germany  had  no  rights  in   Morocco;
neither had we, for that matter.   But, j
like   us,   she  had  Interests,  and  her j
way of protecting her Interests fore-'
ed us to defend, and especially ta de-1
velop our own.    Th" I hing Ge;mtnyi
gives up Is this policy of obstruction. I
No doubt one may regret that tho
renunciation is not    more   complete,!
and   that   certain   economic   clauses
prevent our deriving from the protectorate all the commercial und industrial benefits we deserve,    One may

is perfectly right to insist that tbe
Tangiers-Fez road s ould be begun
before the others) and also the too
frequent intervention of the HanH ol
Morocco, although the control of that
bank is in French handa. But while
these details may hamper and retard1
the "Tunisitication" of Moroeco, they
can not pievent it. Remains the big
objection; the concessions that mus;
be made to Spain.
Without, doubt, the tract that must
be ceded to the Spaniards, while nar

from the Algerian trontier all the
way to the AC.an ic, i nd Spain baa
determined to la: hold of it with an
eaf-etntss thut is in no wise in keeping with either the letter or the spirit
of the agreement, fan we contrive,
by well-managed negotiations to cur.
down the length, and particularly the
width of this tract? We may hope to.
But this is not certain. Spain has always wanted Morocco: she fought
there before we did: she had hoped
that Morocco, which is so near by,
would be to her what more distant A
geria is  to  us���an- extension of the
penetration that has so long been
our watchword in Morocco. At
worst, the existente of that zone is

Not very \ontc ago Dr. Lyttelton
drew in nn unreported eneech an interest nu comparison between mime |
and nature study. "Music," be
pointed nut, "stimulates the imaeiiv
ation, wlrle nature study stimulates
and steadies the imagination." H;��
thinks that boys between the aaes of
eleven and sixteen, the most impres-
sionahle period in their lives, should
be persuaded to r��Rsrd nature study
as a pleasure1, nnd e"rta:nly not
mer��!y as som��thing that may be
useful in after-life.
Dr. Lyttelton denies that he is an
autocrat. He regards, at nil events,
tho genus puer with calholic and
humorous sympathy, realiz'ng thn
ths dune�� nt scliool may posses*
mental faculties which sooner or
later develop. Dr. Lyttelton tells of
a boy who, regarded as an idiot hy
masters and pupils, spent his holidays n Paris, bought a Continental
Brndshaw, studied it intently, and
ultimately knew th�� times of departure and arrival of every train; he
eventually became, indeed, one of the
cleverest of  ra'lway   specialists.
Canon Lyttelton is almost perfectly
ambidextrous, and when famous as a
cricketer he was known to throw a
cricket hall 105 yards with his right
hand, and then, changing over, tu
throw   t almost as far with his left.
Naturally this gift often enabled
him by a quick change to run out
an unsuspecting batsman. It is said
thnt this little dodge of his "came
off" triumphantly one day when
playing for a clrrionl eleven, and tha
victim on retirinc: from the field w-is
heird to murmur. "Hang it all I

Canon Horsley ha? not been connected. To the people of Southwark lie
has been :n every sense a "lather of

once refused a colonial bishopric th.it
he might stay at home and work in
the slums.

efforts at library  founding  were,  au
Edinburgh   contemporary  points  out,
extremely   modest  as compared  with
the work of his distinguished son.   In
1808 Mr. Carnegie's father was a journeyman weaver in Dunfermline.   H*
and two other drivers of the shuttle
met and agreed to convey books they
had in their respective homes to ont
house.   The combined libraries figured   out   only   twenty   volumes.    The
pioneers were joined by other weavers,
and they agreed to tax themselves to
the extent of a few pence per month
and   from   this   fund   purchase   new
books.   The little institution ultimately   blossomed   into  the  Dumferniline

He Tried Himself.
A good story is told of a former
magistrate of Winnipeg, who urrainged
himself in his own court upon the
charge of being drunk and disorderly,
i.nd dancing an Indian snake dance in
a public thoroughfare?
The magistrate took his seat and
rapped for order. Then he called:
"John Blank, stand up!"
The magistrate stood up. Then he
solemnly tried himself for being drunk
and disorderly, and fined himself V2U
for it.
"But." said Magistrate Blank, addressing himself, "for twenty years
you have been a sober and respected
citisen of the community. In consideration o! that twenty years of good
conduct I will remit the flne."
A burst of applause was sternly repressed by the usher, and the next
ease was called.

School Trustees.
Mr. D. Grant, candidate for the
school board on the labor ticket, was
accordingly called upon to state his
views. Mr. Grant pointed out that
although the school board was sadly
hampered by the legislation under
which lt worked, yet lt performed a
most important function. The children were, after all, more Important
than the men, and it waa they that
the trustees bad in charge. He himself believed in a broad education,
"in an education that wlll teach the
child to think, that will make him
independent. In the past they have
thought too much of the higher education of the few, and neglected the
elementary education of the many.'
Teachers, he said, should be well
oaid, as being men and women to
whom one entrusted one's dhlldren at
the most lmpreeelonable time of life,
and the children ahould he brought
up to be workers. With regard to
that aum of $78,000 for a High school
site, he looked at It in this w^. A

and to complete the Sapperton School,
ancl it will be necessary to raise    the
aum of Ninety-seven Thousand l>ollaTS

And whereaa lt appears that if the
aaid sum of $97.0*0.00 be appropriated
from the general revenue of the city
for the current year the rate >of taxation will ibe excessive, and It is expc-
" dlent that such excessive taxation
should 'b^ avoided and the said' sum
should be raised on the credit of the
Corporation and that debentures
should be Issued for thut amount.
And whereas for tne payment ot
Interest on the debentures proposed to
be Issued under this fty-law and for
creating a sinking fund for the payment of the sold debentures when due
1t wlll be necessary to raise by special
rate ln addition to all other rates each
year during the currency of the said
debentures the sum of Five Thousand

And whereas in order to raise the
said yearly sum of $522 4.95 an equal

And whereas tho whole raiteable
property of the said city according to

Perunathe Household Remedy
Mrs. Maria Goertz, Orients, Oklahoma, writes:
"My husband, children and myself
have used your medicines, and wa always keep them in the house ln case of
necessity. I was restored to health by
thla medicine, and Dr. llartman's invaluable advice and books. People ask
about me from different places, and are
surprised that I can do all of my housework alone, and that I wasenred by the
doctor of chronic catarrh. My husband
was onred of asthma, my daughter of
earache and catarrh of the stomach, and
my son of catarrh of the throat. When
I was sick I weighed 100 pounds; now I
weigh 140.
