With all three blades of her pro-
pellor stripped, lying absolutely at the
mercy of the wind and tide, tho
steamer Burin, plying between Victoria and Westminster, drifted from
the mouth of the Fraser and back
again during a terrible two days and
nights' vigil on the part of her crew.
The Burin left Victoria on Friday
afternoon laat on her regular schedule
bound for this port and carrying a
full cargo of merchandise for Westminster and way points. In addition
to her crew, who are all local men,
namely, F. J. Frayer, master; F Postle-
thwalte, mate; H. Greenland, engineer
and a Chinese cook, she carried Mr.
H. E. Rowley, manager of the Victoria
and New Westminster Trading Co.,
who own the craft, and his guest, Mr.
S. Martin.

A call was made at Sydney Island
and throughout Friday night the boat
headed across the gulf to the Fraser.

carried off the Sandheads once again.
lt was blowing half a gale on Saturday night and when morning revealed to the tired men aboard the
fact that they were again near the
river's mouth, they tried once more to
rig the awning. This time some measure of success was forthcoming and
gradually they crept closer to the
shore. Throughout Sunday morning
efforts were made to attract attention
from passing craft aud Japanese fishing boats but nothing resulted. Finally the boat went ashore and the tide
running out left her high and dry.

With the resourcefulness of true
British seadogs, a temporary repair
was effected to the propeller and with
its help and a Jury sail a start was
made for Steveston, when the boat
again floated.

A new reature of the suit brought by

on Columbia street.
According to Mr. Johnston, the case
was scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 21
but owing to tbe congestion in the
Vancouver courts it was laid over
ui.til Monday, Nov. 26. Mr. Johnston
was then away in Victoria and thus
was unable to produce two material
witnesses for the defence go that he
sent one of his assistants to the Vancouver court Monday morning to ask
for an adjournment.
The solicitor for the plaintiff objected to this arrangement and the
case therefore, was proceeded with, no
One of the biggest transportation adjustments in the history of the city
in regard to the B. C. E. R. will be
made on Saturday morning if tbe consent of the provincial government inspector of railways, Mr. F. G. Gamble,
is obtained.
After months of hard work the Highland Park cut-off is now in a state of
completion as far as tracks and wiring are concerned and, according to
Mr. Allan Purvis, interurban managei
of the company, the first passengei
car service over the double track rouU1
will be inaugurated on Saturday morning.
This will mean a complete change in
the car service in the west end of ths
On Sixth and Twelfth.
The residents of Twelfth street, who
have beeu served by the Interurban
cars, will enjoy a city service between
the Columbia street depot and Edmonds, two cars being operated, which
meet at Sixth avenue, to which
double trades have been laid with the
Hassam paving.
The breach hetween Edmonds and
Highland Park wlll be filled by the
Sixth street cars running to the junction at the cut-off which altogether
will necessitate three more cars at
least and probably more on that service.
Another feature of the change will
be  the making of a freight, terminal
on  the  site  imon  which  the  Eburne |
tracks are laid.
Freight Terminals.
The Eburne car line will be cut in
on the Highland Park line near Sixteenth street which will allow for a
trackage capable of handling 250 cars
ao a freight terminus.
The present dispatcher's office at
the corner bt Twelfth and Columbia
street will be moved to the Columbia
street depot within the next two weeks

City and Municipalities Object ts Contributing to Cost of High Level
At a meeting heJd in the office of
the mayor yesterday morning by delegates representing Burnaby, Port
Moody, Coquitlam and New Westminster, it was decided to strenuously protest     the     proposition  of the  Great
trade, would retaliate and it would be
imposisble for the agents of local
firms to canvass iu these places. At
any rate he saw no reason why b&
should not buy bis clothes from Toronto or any *>ther outside place if he-
wanted to.
Get the Right Spirit.
Mayor Lee, in reply, vehemently declared that the local merchant's must.
be protected. "If we are going to>
build np'a community in Westminster
we have got to protect the people who-
pny the price. That's just what ia
the matter with Westminster, the people have not got the real spirit of the

His worship slated further that ir
Alderman   Dodd   wished   to   buy   his
clothes in Toronto���manufactured in
ia sweatshop���while his fellow citizens-
J Btsrved, be could  do  so.
The alderman, however, answered
tliat he certainly would not buy
clothes it they were sweatshop manufactured.
Local Traders Agree.
Several of the local tradesmen who,
at the Invitation ot the council, had
attended the   meeting   endorsed   the
taxation of outside agents.
Mr. J. H. Todd declared that lt was
a very necessary thiug. He had known
of people who had come over from.
Vancouver and had sold sewing machines at a less figure than local merchants. They paid no license. Mr. A.

Frank Van, partner ln the firm ot
the Coquitlam Cartage Company is at
present undergoing trial before Mr.
Justice Murphy and a Jury on a charg i
of stealing a cheque of $228.20 from
the partnership. The other partner
Is Westley Routley, Coquitlam. Accused was defended by Mr. Adam S.
P. 0. Hilodeau of the Windsor hotel,
gave evidence of cashing a cheque for
$228.20 by the Coquitlam Construction Company in favor of the Coquit
lam Cartage Company. The name Van
was endorsed upon it and prisoner
averred that he was authorized to sign
cheques for the firm. Witness only

have collected a small bill like $2 but
he would hand it to accused. He
knew accused about seventeen years.

Frank Van, examined by Mr. Johnston, stated he had two teams in the
partnership to Rouiley's one and was
entitled to twice the amount Routley
was. He admitted cashing the cheque.
He wrote Roiitl'ey saying he was going
north on a survey party. He stayed
in Vancouver about a week and then
went tb Eburne. He made no Attempt

Trophies That Have Been Justified by
Their Recipients.
That famous iournalist. Mr. W. T.
Stead, bsgan liis career as an author
by winning a prize in a competition
orginutid by a boys' paper.
It was in tho 'sixtioa thnt a boys'
journal, of which voung Stead was u
regular reader, offered a prize of a
guinea, to lie spent in books approved
by the editor, fnr tlie best effort in a
literary competition. The winner was
announced as "W. T. Stoad," and the
books he chose were several volumes
of the poets. It v as this success whicli
made Stoad resolve to be a great writer nnd editor himself.
That prolific nnd most successful
authoress, Mrs. Henry Wood, whose
novels are said to have sold to the
extent of over 4,000,000 copies up to
now, began her career witli winning
the prize of $500 offered by a Band ol
Hope organisation for a temperance
tale. Mrs. Wood's prize story was entitled "Danesbury House," and st the
timi the large amouut given for Hie
prize was regarded as wonderful. Delighted with this initial success, Mrs.
Wood immediately began a second
long story, which Messrs. Bentley purchased at once, lor the authoress'
name was then known fnr and wide a*
the winner of thst notab'e prize. This
new story proved to be "East Lynne,"
and thus commenced a wonderful ruu
of success which lasted right sway tiil
the lamented death of Mrs. Wood a
few years ago.
One day in the 'eighties of last century a young Jewish school teacher
in London chanced to pick up a popular weekly, and saw thnt it was offering a prize for tlie best short story
Thinking how useful this prize would
bu to him, and imagining he had n
good story to tell, that young Jew
wrote ji tale, and duly despatched it
to the paper in question. A little while
afterwards he had the satisfHction of
seeing his effort announced ns the
prizewinner, nnd when a bigger prize
of $25 Was similarly offered lor a
story he again had a shot at it.
Success once more crowned his effort, and henceforth Israel Zangwill
made up his mind thnt writing tales,
nnd not school-teaching, wns llis forte.
S\>. i'i due time, he enrned iu >rt and
mire by his stories, till he nt length
left touching altogether, for "The Master" and other noted novels had
brought him world-wldo fame,
A recent instance ri n lad" becoming

u prize is Mrs. Bnilie-Sauuders. She
won the $500 offered hy Mr. Fisher

and Calgarlan, which will bo placed
on the St. Lawrence route ne;,.t sea-son,
and make the port of Quebec their
terminus, la very emphatic in his
opinion that there must be a change
in the present system of pilotage on
the lower St. Lawrence in the Interests of shipping.
In an Interview Mr. Allan said It
was positively lamentable to think
that three disasters to Important
steamers, Including the Royal George,
should have taken place under Inexcusable circumstances of careless navigation, almost simultaneously, cast of
He proceeded to tell of the organization of the Quebec Pilot Association,
which Is a close organization, that not
only precluded good men from entrance to the calling, but actually con-
'rolled the earnings of all pilots, the
good as well as the bad, by forming a
oool, vhich. at the en'J of the season
was divided ln practically equal
shares, In which the Incompetent
<lv>rp<j equqllv with the competent.
He gave Instances of the earnings of
the pilots In the employ of tbe .Allan
i,ine, and referred to one man who
had earned $3,800 this season, who
will onlv be entitled to draw $1600 out
nf the pool. He also spoke of non-education of the nllots, especially ln th��
school of navigation, and said tbat

News' from the seat of war during
the past few days had given rise to
hopes among all interested onlookers
that the conflict might be confined
to the Balkan peninsula, but today the
clouds have gathered thicker thau
ever and only the most optimistic can
hope that the trouble betwoen Servia
and Austria may be settled by peaceable measures.
The London Times lays the blame
fo the war to which "the nations are
drifting" at the faet of the chancellories of Europe, but it i3 not alone
in diplomatic councils that peace and
war is made as we have recently had
witness in the attitude cf the Balkan
peoples before the piesent war and in
the public demonstrations in Russia In
fact that Germany, having already a
population almost a third as largo
again as that of the United Kingdom,
with a higher, though falling, birthrate, has actually made a net annual
gain of Immigrants over emigrants for
several years. Another aspect of the
situation, which the Times draws at-
culty will be experienced with tne pipe

judged from the proportion which

Says the Times:
"Fow things are more observed by
visitors from the Dominions than the
hold of poverty upon large sections of
all British towns. Emigration ln Its
present form Is doing little to mitigate that distressing fact, for It takes
away the more able and leaves a larger proportion of the Incapable for so-

William Ogilvie, e.\-goveriior of the
Yukon Territory, is dead, leaving behind hhn no means of much account.
This mere statement is food for-
thought. William Ogilvie had opportunities such aa are a Horded a few
men to become a millionaire. He was
in the Yukon, carrying out surveys for
the Dominion Government, when gold
was first discovered there.
The average man would have
thrown up Ills government job to go
After gold. Ogilvie thought that hi3
duty called on him to remain at hia
post, and not merely to do that, but
while at his post to refrain from dabbling in gokf locations. Remember.
his official duty had nothing to do
with gold claims. He was not debarred, legally or officially, from dealing
in them But he look the view that he
owed all his time and energy to the
government whose salary he waa taking; and he did not meddle wtth gold.
Also, he did good work for the government in various waya not directly
connected with hl^Burve.ylng. Aa a result he was appointed Commissioner
of Pollce for the territory ln 1887.
Here again, opportunities for enriching himself were large. Most men
would not have considered themse.lves
precluded from taking advantage of
Much opportunities. Ogilvie did. Ho
neveij touched speculation in cither
Kold or real estate.
I*, tribute to his independence and
courage was paid in 185*8 when he was
appointed a government commission-
er to examine charge against other
Yukon officials. Later in the sain?
year he was made governor of the Territory. He held the post for three
years, neither profiting himself, nor
.helping any relative to profit.
Were was a Canadian who measured
���up to the. highest type of British administrative honesty. He gave to
CaiiAda work far beyond the value of
what Canada paid him; and he did
Canada the highest honor by exhibiting one of her sons who counted
money as nothing compared with duty
to his county.
All his life, practically, was spe.nt in
government employ. Had he been an
ordinary- member of the civil service,
tie would have been entitled to super-
anuation before his death. He has left
little or nothing to his widow. Sha
should be considered to have just
.claim for recognition from the country, which William Ogilvie served.���

Constable Matheson, of Surrey, at Sui
livin station, when I told him of the
Market Square incident. I had a similar conversation with Mr. Kennedy, of
McBride & Kennedy, long before the
trial and before there was any question of my being a witness.
Cross-examined by Mr. Grant���You
knew that It was a very Important
point in the case to prove lt was a
"baulky" horse, and that you should
exercise very great care in giving evidence.
Witness���Certainly.    Witness,   pro
cer ding, stated the Market Square in
'Sclent occurred abont a month befon
the accident.    De stuck  io his story
that  it  was  a   tvvo-wheeleJ  cart   Mr
Wolfe was driving that day.   He based
his  knowledge  of the  fact   that   t'v
horse that was killed was  the   sam
horse he saw Wolfe with, on the M^'
ket Square, on the fnct t>'at Mr. Wolf
had trld hlm he had only one   hors
except the lillie pony.      He did   no
know from hia own knowledge that i'
Mr. Grant���Could any nerson p'cv
out that particular horse trom the de
scription you gave of it?
Witness���If he knew the man har1
only two horses, this ono and ths
pony, he would know from my descriv
tion it was the horse. Continuing
witness Baid he had never seen Mr
Wolfe drive in a cart at- any other e\
cept on tbe Market Square.
Reeve T. J. Sullivan confirmed ac
cused's account of how he came to
give evidence during the hearing of
the Saunders versus Surrey case. He
never heard Mr. Stevens say anything
about leading the horse to the brldgs
or anything about the bridge. Neither
was there any mention of leading the
horse along Columbia street, or of
Stevens following Wolfe. Stevens
bore the best of reputations.
Cross-examined, he directed Stevens' attention to the fact that It was
Important to prove the horse was
J. O. Kennedy corroborated Stevens' testimony as to his relating thS
Market Square Incident to him long
before the trial, Saunders versus Surrey.
G. L. Cassady, barrister, em:an;er| itl
Ihe Saunders case, was confident Stevens had   never   ment'oned   anvth'n^
or on Columbia street, or of following
Councillor Inglis testified that he
never heard Stevens say he saw Wolf?
lead the horse to the bridge, or along
Columbia street, or follow Wolfe.
Constable Matheson also corroborated this testimony.
J. E. Hardy spoke of seeing the
horse stop opposite his house once,
for five minutes, without any apparent reason.
This closed the case for the defence.
In his address to the Jury Mr. McQuarrie characterized the charge as
one of the most iniquitous outrageoiu
cases of persecution that anybody b^d
ever heard of. "Dastardly" and "ridiculous," were other epithets used bv
counsel. The charge had been laid
by Wolfe for his ulterior purpose and
he roundly accused that gentleman of!
having committed perjury a thousand
times. He and his wife bad a civil
case pending at this assize based on
the same accident and it was important to prevent Stevens giving evi-'
dence. (���
Mr. Justice Murphy summed up In
seven minutes, strongly in favor of
accused. The only reason why he had
not withdrawn the case from the jury
at the close of the case for the crown,
was because of the evidence of Mrs
Wolfe. A case of perjury required
two credible witnesses, or one credible witness and corroborative testimony on some material point. Mrs.
Wolfe swore that John Wolfe could
not have driven the horse that was
killed without her knowledge. Tbat
did not prove that Wolfe was not on
the Market Square with the h orse.
but they might draw an Inference that
lie 'vas not.
The evidence of Bothwell and Hard/
proved that there was no corroboration. The learned judge laid stress
upon what w-as a reasonable doubt
and explained at length the law of perjury.

Edmonds, Nov. 27.���The Burnaby
municipal election campaign which has
live more weeks to run, has taken new
life with the announcement that Mr.
H. M. t raser of West Burnaby has decided to enter the arena for the reeveship in opposition to Councillor D. C.
This was made public at a meeting
of the Work Six Progressive Association held In McKay hall last evening.
The situation as lt stands today makes
lt practically certain that the residents of the eastern portion of the
municipality will enter a man In the
contest with a possibility of a fou��-
cornered affair before nomination day
The residents of Edmonds feel aggrieved   at   the   action   of   the  West
Burnaby people in placing a man in
the field as lt was the Ward Six as
sociation  which  first    advanced    tht
idea of calling a meeting and asked
the Edmonds Ratepayers' Asosclation
to call a meeting  of delegates from
the whole of the municipality.   They I
take  the  stand   that  two    years    li I
enough  tor  any  one distr'c.t  to hold ���
the reeveship honors and it is almost
certain that strong opposlt'on ln thp
candidature of a well known resident
will appear from Edmonds.
At the present moment Mr. Alec.
Macrherson is the only candidate fo:
the Edmonds district as councillor bui
he Is not letting the grass grow very
long and is keeping In touch with all
municipal matters.
In the Central Park district Coun
clllor Mayne will have opposition but
this will not be decided for a few
days at least.
Altogether the situation has taken
a turn which should delight those who
look for a spirited campaign, while for
the present councillors seeking election clouds are looming everywhere.
The special campaign fund committee of the Progressive Association ls
laking steps to Interest the business
men of the city In the general meet
lug to be held next Wednesday at
3:30 in the city council chamber.
Up to date the expenses of the association   have   averaged   about  $300
a month after allowing for Initial and
extraordinary   expenditures.     Nearly
$1,900 havo been raised from the ordinary    subscriptions    and    another
quarterly installment falls due on the
first of December.    This, however, it
I Is said, leaves no margin on which the
I association can push forward aggres-
l sive work or in fact do any more at
I the outside than barely meet a mini-
I mum expenditure of $200 a month.
I     This is the reason why the executive  determined  that something had
to be done and why special efforts arc-
being made to interest the merchants
of  the  city  more   intimately  in   the
work than they have been before. Most
of them have already joined as mem
bers but their interest has been too
ready to stop at that.
To make any organization a success
the committee holds, lt is necessary i
to commnnd as wide and continued an

London, Nov. 27.���"The British
Board of Kilni Censors" is the titlo
selected for the new organization promoted by the Incorporated Association of Cinematograph Manufacturers
for the suppression of undesirable
cinematograph pictures. Its headquarters will be situated in the vicinity of Charing Cross, and its activities
are expected to commence on Dec. 1.
From that date every film made In
the United Kingdom or Imported for
exhibition purposes within theso islands will have to bear the hallmark
of the board before taking a place in a
public performance. To facilitate tho
work or censorship Mr. Redford will
have four assistants, two of who will
be always on duty. It is possible that
a lady assistant may be included
amongst those selected for the task.
Vben a film has been passed a certificate will be issued. A copy of this
will be stamped on the Mm.
Already a provisional list of prohibited films has been drawn up by Mr.
Redford. It will probably be round to
be a close copv of the unofficial censorship adopted In'the Un"'"! states.
The list prohibited subjects includes
mixed bathing neenes. films representing in an objectionable way suicides,
murders, or deaths by violence, dog
fights, cock fights, or combats between beasts or birds revealing unnecessary cruelty; scenes at funerals
showing the lowering of the ceffin into the grave, or tbe dressing of a dead

The public is keenly interested in
the progress towards completion of
the vessels of tlie Royal Australian
navy. Their arrival in these waters
will be made the occasion of great
demonstrations. Recent events in the
Balkans have brought home to people
the need for preparedness for any
eventuality, and they have also shown
tbat the peace of the world is dependent on a great number of factors.
The Primate, Archbishop Wright, in
an address to the Synod at Sydney,
said he regarded the compulsory military training law as a moral asset. It
contributed to discipline, and helped
to teach self-control. It was all-important that they should, as a church,
recognize their obligation in the direction of fostering all that belonged to
the well-being of the general community. They must undertake a public
service of tint kind, or else forfeit
their healthy life as a church.
The appointment of Major-Oencrat
Sir Harry I'.arron as Governor of
Western Australia. Is well recoiv<>d in
Perth, although the departure or Sir
Herald Strickland is regretted. It Is
Interesting to recall that Sir Gerald
was Governor of Tasmania before his
appointment to this Slate, so that
precedent lias been followed in the selection of his successor.
The substantial prosperity of the
residents of Queensland is well Indicated by the growth in the Sayhig3
Bank deposits during lhe past five
years. A return just shows the sum
of ��7,342.811 standing to the credit
of depositors.
The situation at tbe North Lyell
Mine. Tasmania, remains unchanged
GeuerouB help has been forthcoming

The transfer of Sir Harry Barron,
the Governor, to Western Australia, ls
generally regretted in Tasmania.
The stream of nominated Immi
grants to Victoria Is Increasing, and
tbe quality of the new settlers arriving under this scheme is very good,
though some complaints have been
heard to the affect that the proportion
of city workers among the newcomers
is rather too high. It is. however, recognized by all but extreme trade
t'nlonlsta that it cannot be expected
that onl.v agriculturists should be allowed to enter the State under this
long rango between the Hon. J. B.
lu i t/.og. Minister of Justice and Native Affairs, and prominent member*)
of the Opposition. Speaking at Nyla-
troom, Mr. Hertzog described several
of the Opposition leaders as foreign
adventurers, and said that South Africa would decline In future to be
ruled by any persons who were not
Afrikanders. As the word Afrikander, in the minds of most English-
speaking South Africans, only applies
to persons of Dutch descent, thla remark has stirred up a lot of resentment, and Mr. Hertzog was forced to
explain In a subsequent speech that by
Afrikander he meant a person born In
South Africa, whether English or
Dutch speaking.
The Prime Minister nnd Mra. Botha

IN ��4 V tliiv since the first building was erected in Merritt has there been such a vast amount of large and
costly building under construction as there is today.
HOTELS CANNOT ACCOMMODATE the tremendous influx of people, the
two larger hotels, the Coldwater and City, are adding large additions to their present premises, which will
double their capacity.   What is the reason of all this ?
KAILKLJALJ JVlAvjlN A 1 fcJb, Contractors and Surveyors are daily arriving in the city���
What is all this for ? Something large and gigantic in view. Millions are being spent in railroads in and
around the City of Merritt.
LAl 11 ALlO 10 must have some great merger in sight or under way. Richard McBride's words
are now coming true.���Do you remember what the premier said in one of his famous speeches in the Legislative in 1911 ? He said, "the people of this province might look to Merritt as one of the largest coal and agricultural producing centres in British Columbia and that Merritt would become one of the largest cities in ti\e
QAaALi MliNlINvj Ili/VJr EAyIO are visiting the city almost every day. What is all this for?
The coal fields of Merritt are proclaimed to contain an inexhaustable sypply of coal (the present daily shipment of coal from Merritt exceeds 1400 tons.)
BANK. Of MON I IxEjAL This financial institution has erected a most handsome and
large new building. WHY ? Because the growth of business in Merritt has outgrown and staggered this
institution's expectations and they could not handle the business in their old quarters. This alone is a good
barometer of the progress that the City of Merritt is making.

got any Real Estate in Merritt, my advice to you is to
BUY RIGHT NOW. There is not a city in British Columbia that offers the inducement to the investor that
Merritt does, and mind you, the prices of Real Estate in the City of Merritt are such, that any person with
the smallest mean can buy.
V^OiVll AK.lii other cities with the same population that Merritt has, and the age next; think
of it, Merritt has only been in existence a little over four years, you will then be convinced that Merritt has
made good and is yet the best investment field in B. C.

St. George's Hall���Canada and
Some two hundred and fifty people
gathered in St. Georges' hall last evening to listen to Major Cluin's travel
talk and were amply repaid for coming out.

held the closest attention of his audience as he carried them by word and
picture through the Rockies, Banff,
Laggan, the glaciers, Oregon, Washington and California.
It was a question with some whether
the word pictures or the colored slides
were the most attractive and at Its
close Major Clum was tendered the
hearty thanks of those present.
On any future visit to Westminster
It would seem that "California" will
require an even larger hall to accommodate those who will wish to see and
