Dry Judge Guy of the superior 'Oun,
for J. M. Porter, realty operators

The l'Jl2 .bond Issue, the Burnab-

Burnaiiy   l^ike  Improvements.
Construction   Engineer     Thornpso>-
broughl In his report on the Burnaby
Lake improvement scheme.    His estimate  of the  total  value  of the land-
to be benefited by the scheme, tallied
somewhat with that of the committee
of   property   owners   who   are  at   tb-
he-id  of  the  matter,  something    like
tl.000,000  being the assessable valu<-
affected.     The  work  of  making  pre
llmlnary survey of the work Involved.
Is estimated to cost about $7500. PW
per cent,  of  the total   value  Involve''
is the amount allowed under the ac'
which  totals $10,000, so that in vie"-
of this, Mr. Thompson was instructed
to go ahead with the work.    Of    th'
$7500  to  be spent, $1000  of this Wl"
be invested In Instruments, etc., which
will  be available  for  other  use afte-
the work is completed.
Attack Road Superintendent.
Words flew thick and  fast regard
ing   the   charge   made   against   Roa^
Superintendent Rumble by several t**
the road foremen.    It  was only 1>*
week that Foreman Yates was    sus
pended  pending an  Investigation  inl"-
his conduct townrds the superintend
ent.    Before   the committee was prepared  to  make    their    report,    tw
othor charges were laid against hin-
by    different    foremen.      Counclllor-
MacDonnld and  Madill    formed    th-
commltte?   to  investigate  the    Yate-
charges, but lt was thought advlsabl-
last evening to add another member
Councillor Brltton, who took hia see*
again   after   several   weeks   enforce''
absence, being the third member.    >
special meeting hns been called    fo-
Wednesday evening, when  the whol-
situation will bo aired out.    The gl'"
of the whole matter appears to    b��
the question what heads wlll ue de
capitated. Rumble's or the road foremen's. In the opinion of the majoritv
of the councillors,  this  meeting wit'
serve once and fnr all, to be a lessor
for the parties    at fault,    and    complaints in the future will be made tc

For the defence, Mr. Sprott testified
that,there was not enough to go o��-

been acquitted before on a simile*"

Deputations to Coancfl.
Two deputations waited upon th'
councll. The first was a committee
of Twelfth street residents far whoo-
Messrs. Duncan, Minthorne and D>~.
Wilson spoke. It appeared that thes"
gentlemen only signed the petition fo-
the paving of Twelfth street on condition that It was double tracked.
They understood that the 11. C. E. P.
had decided to go no further wlDr
the double track than Sixth avenue,
and asked the council to press for its
extension before paving waa laid dowr-
at least to Tenth avenue. Tha railway committee and the board <*r*
works will take up the matter with
the tramway company.
Replying to Dr. Wilson's query e��*

Of the miny tented aggregations
that are touring the country this
year there ts not one that has
lirr.usrht Into prominence truthful
western depictions as hai the 101
Ranch Real Wild West Shciw which
is to be here on May 28. - There Is
that something about this show that
is aibsent In all others and It (Ills a
r.lchfe in the amusement world' that
was Vive-ant up to the time ot the or-
gan'.atslon of the 101 Ranch Show.
Thero have iba��n many so-cilted wild
west showa sent out on the road during the past / -few years but when
cornpired to the exnfbltlon coming
here they are not wild west shows ir.
any one iway. Shows whose owners
rf eet the long hair and whose performance -cona'nts of, pistol shots and
a series of yells do not make up a
rral wild west show. The 101 Ranch
show Is of pure'y western origin ar.d
carries with It an unmlstatolble wm-
tern atmofphe-o. It comes dlroct
fr im thu famous Miller Brothers'
101 Ranch at Rllss, Oklahoma, and
there Is not the flr.-��t thing albout It
that ca'i be credited to the east.
When the .rhow was first org-inl^d
thc policy then was ta eliminate all
that had anything1 ot an ea��tern

B. C. E. II. Matters.
A letter trom Mr. Sperling, of th*
B. C E. R., was read regarding th*
proposed moving of the pole line o**
the Pole Line road In North Burnaby.
It appears that the traction company originally owned the road an*
in 1904 turned lt over to the municipality, retaining at the time the right
to use the road for a power line an'1
also for a street railway. In view o'
this, the B. C. E. R. felt that th-
munlclpality should pay the cost o'
removing the seven or eight poles i*
dispute and also protect the compan-
from dangerous blasting operation*
which are. alleged to be going on I"

Not many years ago two men were
observed in a duck boat trying desperately to tow out of a running ice

Trainer Tells of  Remarkable Musical
Talent In Animals.
A sood many pet-owners may be
startled, to learn that animals can
distinguish between musical notes,
says an English trainer in a recent
article, and that those of any degree
of int 'lligen.-e may be trained as
inu.-dcnl performers. Animais that
play musical instruments am hy no
meana uncommon, and a number of
seals have before now been equipped
with drums, cymbals, horns, and
bell-;, and have made music when
instructed by their trainer to do so.
If the 'melody has not been perfect,
it hus been sufficient to prove that
the seals have at least some music in
their composition.
The majority of wild animals are
influenced by music, and everyone
knows that bears can be taught to
dance on tlieir hind legs while hold-
inu' a pole to soynd of music, oven if
that music is ground out of a common
street organ by means of a handle.
Once a circus horse has been taught
to do a trick to a certain lune lie will
do it wh never hc hours that tune,
and, in consequence, be is the cause
of some funny incidents now and
again, Ones*.] took u horse into tlie
strei t for exercise, and as we turned
a oorner a barrel-organ commenced
to grind out its music. The tuno
was the very one tlie animal was accustomed to in the circus ring, nnd
lie concluded that I was expecting
him to l'o through his usual performance, fie broke away from me and
gave a free performance to the middle of the road, and I could only call
him to oi-ii'T by appealing to the
"musician" to stop the organ.
Whi n the ordinary dog howls at
mu-ic it does not always do so be-
cause the notes get on its "nerves,"
but often because it i- striving to
imitate them as well as its untrained
Vi sal  powers w-ill  permit.
I  heard    a   wonderful    story   of   a,
singing dog the ether day.    A hand-

Little Je-'i Brighten the Days In the
House ti Commons.
Cheerful little remarks and episodes
tend to lighten the most dreary days
ii the session of n legislative body.
H. W. Anderson in The Canadian
Courier recounts a few of recent vintage in the Commons at Ottawa.
It was the early morning hours
following the recent all-night sitting
of Parliament in which the Manitoba
school question was under debate and
discussion. It was, moreover, the sit-
tinn at which Hon. George P. Graham had resumed his ft at in the
House as the newly-elected member
for Soutli Renfrew. The vote upon
the amendment of Mr. Mondou, the
Nationalist member for Yamaska, had
just been taken, and the members
were trou ping out into thi corridors,
the majority on their wa/ to the restaurant for a sandwich and a cup of
coffee. The ox-Minister of Railways
and Canals was strolling down the
corridor with a frown upon his lace,
when Dr. Michael Clark, of Red
Deer, accosted  him.
"Wherefore so downcast, George?"
he queried.
Mr. Graham shook his head. "It's
pretty hard lines," he responded, "to
liave spent the past few weeks zealously endeavoring to defea'. the Government, and then come here to-day
and have to cast my lirst vote in
support of them."
One of the most ardent of the Opposition newspaper men was reviewing the supplementary estimates in
the Press Gallery. Ho was checking
off item after item with keen critical
comments. Very little seemed to meet
with his approval. "Gross extravagance," "A patent political vote
catcher," "Another useless expenditure." "Automobiles indeed; they'll
be buying aeroplanes next." were the
caustic comments whicli from time to
time fell from his lips as he diligently
ciinned the items. Finally, however,
he paused, and read slowly: "Gratuity to the dependents of an official
who served for over twenty years
in the House of Commons and is now
insane." He looked out over the
House. It was o tedious afternoon and
a western member, who can scarcely
hj accounted a brilliant speaker, was
fn the midst of an extended dissertation. "Well," he commented, "I
think that vote sh .uld meet with unanimous approval."
They were Conservative members,
and they had harked 1 ack to the victory of September last With its cam-
pai.'ii stories.
"Well," drawled Col. Hnch Clar!;.

Interesting   Winler   Military   Evpeti-
ment Made In Eastern Ontario.
Two parties of Canadian military officers engaged fn a novel tactical
exercise between Ottawa and Prescott
on March il and 10. Xhe parties were
commanded respectively by Lt.-Col.
Morrison, D.S.O., of Ottawa, and Lt.-
Col. Uuell. cf Brockville. The idea
was to test the possibility of using
snowshocrs as a "cavalry screen" for
forces operatin" in winter.
The manoeuvre area was 52 miles
in length, and varied from four to
eight miles in ��� ���'��� 'At. Kach party of
seven hauled its blankets, cooking
utensils, anfl two days' rations on a
toboggan. The advance was made at
8 a.m. on March 9. Marks were
awarded for thoroughness of scouting
en route, keeping up lateral communication, comfort in bivouacing, greatest penetration of area from starting
point, and driving in enemy's-
The Ottawa party made 22 miles the
first day, and bivcuaced at G p.m.
under cover in dense underbrush.
The Brockville party advanced to
Spencerville, about 17 miles. Both
parties moved out two hours before
sunrise, and came in contact at 8
o'clock on the morning of Marcli 10.
witli tho result thet thc Brockville
team was defeated with the loss of
their transport and five scouts who
wore ambushed at different points on
tho line, which at tbat portion of the
area was four and one half miles
wide. The Ottawa party lost one man,
and were declared the winners.
Though the temperature was only
four below zero, the rifle oil clogged
the mechanism of the carbines so
that in a numher of cases the weapons could neither be loaded nor fired owing to the cold. It was estimated that the Ottawa soldiers, who
penetrated furthest into the "enemy's" area, traveled about 40 niiies
in 24 hours.

Advocates both for and against
Home Rule for Ireland u-=e Canada
to illustrate and support their arguments. Time and again the great
British public is assured that Mr. As-
cjuith's bill will place Ireland i.i . e
same legislative positiou as Ontario
or any of the other Provinces ff the
Dominion. Equally strong assurances
are given by the other side that, complete autonomy such as Canadi enjoys is contemplated by the Ministerialists.
Sir W. Max Aitken told his eon-ti-
tuents the other day that the Govern:
