not take the flsh of the Sound fishermen, they brought them over here
by the scowload and undersold the
British Columbian fishermen. Last
year only 58,000 cases of sockeye���
the lowest record for twenty years���
had been packed by tbe Fraser river
canneries, but 130,000 by the Sound
canneries. "If the Americans have
their way." he said, "a great Industry
will be lost Just as the sturgeon inti uns try was lost." The total pack on
the Fraser last year was 300,000 case,
mostly of fall salmon; 1400 licenses
had been Issued, half of which were

half for Japs.

GROWING   PAINS
Edmonds, Feb. 16.���The sixteen
Russians wbo were arrested last
Wednesday, charged wltb extorting a
promissory note from a contractor,
were brought before Magistrate Walk
er yesterday morning for a secon.1
bearing. The case was a protracted
one, owing to the necealty of securing a competent interpreter.
Contractor Samuel Mclntyre gave
testimony regarding the trouble he
bad had wltb the men, wbo were employed on a clearing contract near tbo
Junction of the Boundary and River
road. Threats upon his life were
made. t
Magistrate Walker said he regards I
tbe charges as very serious. He com,
mitted the men for trial.
Just where tbey will be placed
while awaiting^trial appears to be a
difficult problem for. tbe provincial
police to handle. A large batth of
prisoners were sent from New West
mlhster penitentiary to Nanaimo
early in thp y>a$k, but tbeir places
were immediately filled by prisoners'
from Vanoouver. ���    f
was ably afforded by Hairy P.
Price; who took the part of the man
servant Charley Harrow, whfe Leeu-
r aWilkins, in the hands of Gertrude'
Keith was another character that was.
well played in the lighter vefir.
The story of the nlot Is well known:
It is quite elaborate, but tbe
details are carefully worked out, and
most of the scenes are very realistic.
Tbe final dramatic confession of Ken-
ward Wright to tbe whole of bis dastardly conduct, is, perhaps, a little
forced, but it allows of a happv ending to the play anl the reunion of
tbe parted pair through the agency of
the priest '
Tb�� supporting cast was very fair;,
and the play scored   a   big success.
Further proof was aforded that the'
new management are bent on giving
good fare to the theatre-goln_ nubile-
of New Westminster.

MARKET   j
REPORT   }
The Chinese New Year, which will
be celebrated today, had the effect of
enlivening the chlken department of
th? local market yesterday morning.
All kinds of fowls were offered for
sale and the eager Orientals were falling over themselves to secure the
toothsome bird for the great occasion,
'lhe supply, however, kept pace with
the demand, and prices showed no
signs of making any definite advance,
although they held stiff throughout
the day.
The whole market was a good one,
and there were many people present
with good supplies of most things for
for sale, ln the meat market pork
was plentiful, but the price was very
stiff, and anything like a j,ood hog
brought 12% centa a pound without
much difficulty. Other meats were
rather scarce, and there were very
few carcases of mutton for sale, not
more tban about a half a dozen in all.
Veal was also scarce, and beef was
rare to the point of disappearance.
Prices, however, remained unchanged.
Potatoes are attracting considerable
attention anion/ dealers now, and a
rise is expected. The price for this
root was very firm, and it was not
easy to buy any quantity ���under $30 a
ton. Up the valley prices are reported to be higher, but the supply near
the coast is still holding up. As soon
as these potatoes are off the market it
is expected that quotations wlll move
up sharply. Turnips, parsnips,
carrots, beets, etc. were sold in good
quantities at fair prices.
The flsh market was active at the
old prices, while cut and pot flowers
were freely sold.     *
In the auction ring a bunch of Holstein cows was sold at prices varying
from $120 to $57.50. There were a lot
of horses for sale, which were disposed of at all prices.

this Ib the sum which the prosecution's evidence tends to show the peculations from Champion ft White
amounted to, but they continued after
Hayes had left for Kngland ln August,
and the company had been turned Into a Joint stock company.
Hayes was agent for the Beeston
Company of England, and did a large
business with the flrm of Champion
& White, and the allegation is that he
was paid the money in question by
Champion ft White on invoices for
goods which had been declared correct by an ofTloer of their own named
Mackenzie Morden. The charge related to drafts between June 29 and
August 22.
Mr. Pennington, manager for Champion ft White, denied yesterday that
Hayes hud been trapped to return
from London, but he had returned ln
answer to wires and letters from Mr.
Pinnear of the firm of Hayes ft Co.,
Ltd. The accused would not come
farther than Calgary and he had gone
theie with Mr. Pinnear to see him.
He told the accused that he wanted to

$14,000 and then the accused turned
to Pinnear and asked what he had
been doing since he left. Pinnear replied: "The same as you were doing
before you left." He put the accused
under arrest.
charge was his handwriting. He testified that lt was written at the dictation of or from a slip supplied by the
accused. At the time his suspicions
were aroused because be had not
copied tt from the regular invoice of
the Beeston Company. Morden, of
Messrs. Champion ft White, was in
the ollice very often towards evening ln conference with Hayes.
Craves   Protection.
George Wilson Pinnear, ln whose
charge the business was left after the
accused had left tbe country and who
became one of the stockholders when
the concern was converted into a Join:
stock company, claimed the same protection accorded ' him ' in the lower
court, of not having his own evidence
used to Incriminate him.
The court nodded assent.
The witness Just touched the -fringe
of his evidence but it was of a telling
character. He had made out one ot
the invoices in the case at the instruction of the accused. He had struck
off two copies before the accused was satisfied and he produce!
the second copy to show that an item
for six boilers hai heen altered' to
read eight. These particular goods
had not arrived but the accused told
him that Champion ft White had
agreed to have the draft honored.
Question of Restitution. | When the ^oods did arrive there were

and on the last occasion accused told
him he had goods coming from the
old loantry and if witness would give
him his liberty he woul! sell those
goods and make restitution. He tald
tho accuse! that Champion & White
could not accept restitution with
Stolen property as it would amount to
To letters written to Pinnear b.v accused were put in. One intimateu
that if things were arrange! In a certain way "the wolves would have to
go hungry" and if there had been any
underhand business with Morden he
would make things very unpleasant
and .expose everything.
The   second   letter described   Mor-
that, the goods not having been paid  den's  desire   for a   bonus
for by accused.
A duel of wits followed when Mr.
Pennington was cross-examined by-
counsel for the defense, Mr. H. B. Robinson. He told counsel that restitution had been made by Walter Hayes
ft Co., Ltd., which was the name of
'the company after the accused kit
for England.
"Why did he ��o to the old country,
do you know?" asked Mr. Itobinson.
"He went to tbe old country to es-
caj o i charge of stealing his wife s
diamonds," answered Mr. Pennington.
Air. Pennington admitted that Mr.
Moi den who had chocked in the goods
as received, was getting only $150 a
month,  but  waa  keeping an  auto   to-
ft/a.rtta  th.   latter   part or  tils    nt.r~.in

"And your ausptclon. wore not

Robinson. i
"No, but there were extenuating eir- '
cumstances. 1 suppose you don't want i
to hear those?"
"N'o thank you," said counsel sharply.
"1 thought not," commented Mr.
Pennington.

Mr. Pennington admitted that the
agency accused had was a valuable

WHEA^ RATES TO THE SOUTH.
Through the kindness ot the Inter-
,^��tat^ "Comraefce    Commission,    says
-the Winnipeg Free Press, there Is in
force at present a rate on wheat to
Duluth  and Minneapolis  from points
in the Cflnndian West identical witb
the'rarfe "t6 *ir>A   William and   Port
Arthur.-   The   Interstate    Commerce
Commission * waived    the    provision
TWhich makes a thirty-day notice nee
���eeaary to chattge a grain rate.     The
known fact syndicate that representa
.tions urfiirig this action were made to
the Interstate Commerce Commission
.by  tfce, Canadian    Railroad  Commission, aftfii��4a'hy the Canadian government.  .The rate, as issued, applies
. however,-only to grain for expoit. The
: i;rain that finds itself in Duluth under
.this through .rate must bo sent forward to this" seaboard.   If lt is milled
fin boW'Wlft,"taften out of bond   for
local consumption, it must pay a high
,irel^'t$r]jitje, jfrhich is made up of^wo
local rates..   Upon the    expiry of a
thirty-days' notice, however, this limitation  of  the rate will  end.      After
March' ���$!*,'-'therefore, wheat Intended
for milling In bond or for local   consumption  can  be  shipped  to  Duluth
���or  Minneapolis  at  a  relatively    low
freight *ate. ;�� Ottawa dispatcher    report an attempt by Western influences
to induce the Dominion  Government
��� to ask'thwtnterstate Commerce Commission to permit this lower rate to
become effective at once.    If the   request T^ere to be made by the Dominion  Government,  it  would  probably,

open  up immediately a  very considerable  market  for    damp  wheat    of
milling quality, wbicli, under existing
conditions, is in danger of being de- j wy'Th'
.strayed.     March   lst   the   date   upon

deer. The animals divided and Bill I
and his partner separated ln pursuit.
Bill got four caribou and hung them
high around his camp- His partner
failed to return. It looked like the
prospector's good-bye for him. That
left Bill alone for the winter with
nbthing but meat to eat and nothing
at all to smoke.
Meanwhile the man who went out
to file the claim had met A. Klock-
mann, now of Spokane, at San.lpoint.
Klockmann saw the samples and concluded that he wanted to buy in on
the porperty. Learning that BiM and
his partner were still up there, presumably, he started for the camp in
November with an Indian guide. The
Indian declined further exertion and
risk when they reached 'PHesl Lake,
Klockmann crossed over and asked
Al. Pelkey to go with him ln search of
Bill.
Pelkey knew the country anJ climate, In consequence of which he refused. Klockmann finally induced him
to make an effort. The lake was
frozen over then, but they got a boat
through lt by breaking the Ice ahead
with axes. When they reached the
point they started for, Klockmann was
exhausted, but after getting warmed
up he decided to make another effort
In spite of Pelkey's warnings. The
snow was then six or seven feet deep
where they were. They reached Cedar
Creek, where BUI had started up hill,
but here Klockmann had to give up.
Lost Partner Saved by Beans.
The lake was not yet solid enough
te be walked upon in safety and to
follow the shore meant an 80-mile trip
through the snow. Pelkey took Klockmann to an old cabin lie had near the
lake. Thty saw smoke coming from
the chimney and inside sat Billy's
partner, who went out after the caribou. He had become confused in the
hunt, but managed to keep going until he came to the cabin. Here he had j
been living on beans straight, finding !
some that Pelkey had left there. He I
told about Bill left alone upon the I
peak, but it was clearly up to Bill
then, He couidn't be reached without

WESTMINSTER
AGAIN IN LEAD
Win of Last Evening Puts Royal City
nockeylsts Once More
Ahead.
Westminster is again in the lead ln
the  iJijciric  Coast  Hockey  League.
BacJ^ to their old-time form wltb
the return of the big coverpolnt, Ernie Johnson, the Koyalists double
scored Lester Patrick's bunch ln Victoria yesterday evening, leaving the
ice with a i^core of four goals to thei'
credit.
Victoria had a little the better ot
the play In tbe first period, scoring
twloe. Westminster only managed to
get Into the twine once, but in ths
second period Lehman refused to lei
tlie puck get behind him, while Una-
.say made one costly wild swipe.
With the teams tied in the scoring
at Uie beginning of the final period,
the big crowd in the rink keyed itself
up to a wild pitch of excitement, the
locals coming in lor a thunder of applause when they started off with a
wild rush. But it was too wild. Before the whistle sounded for the end
���of the jrame the crowd wa3 Just as
cold as the surface over which the
boys glided.
.The game was comparatively clean
nnd was exciting from si ait to finish.
Westminster's win last nlghl
places the Royalists at the tow, pulls
Victoria down to second place and
leaves the Vancouvers ln the ditch.
Last night's  teams were:
Westminster���Lehman, goal; McLean, point; Johnson, cover point;
Hyland, rover; Mailen, centre; McDonald, right wing; Gardner, left
winii.
Victoria���Lindsay, goal; Patrick,
L., point; Smalll, cover point; Dunderdale, rover; Smith, centre; Howe,
right wing;  Poulin, ieft wing.
The next game will take plase ln
Vancouver on Tuesday evening, when
Westminster will clash with Vancouver. Arrangements have again been
made by tbe secretary of the local
���club, P. W. Luce, for the running of
special cars, the regular dollar seat

HOW TO GET MONEY.
KEVIEW OF IHE
LACROSSE SITUATION
Dally  News   Sporting   Expert   Takes
Long Look at Next Season's Possibilities.
The announcement that R. J. Fleming and other magnates of the "Big
Four" aggregation will iuvaue the
west in search of players has caused
no little talk among lacrosse enthusiasts ln this'city and Vancouver. Con
Jones, the boss of the Minto Cup
holders, will arrive from California
on Sunday, and has requested tlm a
meeting of the British Columbia
League be called next week to go
over the present situation.
It ia possible, that If these eastern
men still persist ln attempting to
make a,raid on Vancouver and New
Westminster players, the w-jr willbe
carried Into the enemy's camp. Lasl
season was the most successful ln the
history of lacrosse on the Pacific
coast, and following Joe Lally's advice to the western men to stay where
they are when they knew a goou
berth, the prospect of the coast clubs
being broken u? appear ta be little
out of place. Con Jones ls a fighter,
and New Westminster fans can reBt
assured that he will do his utmost to
keep the B. C. league and players i��-
tact.
Just what the Royal City line-up
will be this coming season is problematical. There is a report around that
Harry Hyland, who is doing sterling
work for the local hockey team, will
don a New Westminster uniform.
Harry is some lacrosse player ind lt
ls possible lf the local men make their
orrer worth while, he will remain on
the coast during the coming summer.
Calgary now has the lacrosse fever.
Plans are being formulated in
the Prairie city to organize a strong
club and they have hopes of securing
a B. C. League franchise. They hope
to have Tommy Burns at the head or
their team. That the interest ln the
league would be greater if the number of clubs were increased to three
or four, is undoubted. The lacrosse
bee has been buzzing in Victoria for
seme little time and the addition of
Capital City would make the race decidedly interesting. Be that as lt may,
the present situation ls apt to change
without notice and anything short
of an earthquake may be expected
\-lthln tho next few weeks.
west two thousand carloads of agricultural products.
"I have recommended that Instruction trains be sent out to advocate
mixed farming. The agricultural colleges should have correspondence
courses to teach the most profitable
method to follow.
"To assist them In marketing their
products, without loss or damage, and
at small expense, good roads from the
farm to the railway station or to the
market town, should at all costs be
provided.'1 '**
"I am firmly convinced lf we do
not meet this situation now, and Induce the famer to modify his present
policy as to wheat growing, there will
be a radical and painful re-adjustment
later on, which wlll str!l:e a damaging blow at our prosperity."

THE    FARMER'S    FAULT.
P.  R.,
General Manager Bury or C
Gives Valuable Advice.
Vancouver, B. C, February lfi.
���Mixed farming instead of devotin--'
their entire energies to wheat growing, and judicious storage Instead of
expecting the railways to move the
entire crc? in a few weeks, are the
remedies which are recommended as
a solution of the yearly grain block-

jetty contract also had almost certain
ly been secured by a local flrm, aHd
work would be begun at once. Some
difference of opinion seemed to exist
among captains concerning the need
of lighte and ranges on the river, but
the committee did not hesitate to recommend that they should be established as soon as possible. The matter of fog signals on the biidge should
be pushed by the incoming committee.
H. Ryall told a tale of progress fdr
the postal committee. During the year
the mail-carriers had been given free
transportation on the B. C. E. R. The
business of the postoffice had increased 35 per cent, and the figures
would have been even better lf the
Queensborough and Sapperton offices
were sub-offices instead of being quite
separate, lt was recommended that
they should be turned into subordinate offices, and the new committee
was directed to take up this matter
and also that of the establishment of
another branch office in the West
End. With the change to branch offlces it was believed that the city
rate of one cent would apply to letters between the sub-offices instead
of that of two cents prevailing today.
The mailcarriers staff had been increased by three and the inside staff
by two, bringing them each up to 11.
The whole Btaff numbered 25. The
addition of another mail-sorter would
enable the men to work only an eight-
hour day. Three business and two
residential deliveries were now in
force, and he announce J that two
mail cars would probably be finished
by the end of the month and put on
the Chilliwack service. Finally he
was informed, that the Calgary Eye-
Opener was now carried through the
post.

Before leaving hia headquarters in
Winniieg recently, Mr. Bury made
public some figures showing that do-
spite all the criticisms directed
against the C. P. R., the company had
moved 51 per cent more wheat ap to
February 1 than for tbe same period
in any' other year. After reviewing
the situation as lt now exists, Mr.
Bury offered the following sugestions
for tbe beterment of conditions In
connection with the wheat growing industry.
���I  do not believe  that any of our
problems will be solved by fault finding.    That remedy was tried in Kansas, until that state was the laughing
stock of the world.     As the acreage
under wheat increases, no amount of
trackage or equipment will enable the
railways to haul ��Jut the crop ln ten
or.twelve  weeks.     To do so would

A farmer with a full Quarter section
under cultivation, might expect to
reap 3200 bushels of wheat. Ir. ,that
case would it te too much to expect
him to provide two eranarios at a
cost of $130 to protect it?

$700.
Two enthusiastic votes of thanks
were passed during the evening. The
first was to Mr. Sheriff for his work
as temporary secretary during the absence of Mr. Stuart' Wade. This was
carried by all standing and singing,
"For He's a Jolly Good Fellow." The
other was moved by T. J. Trapp to
the retiring officers,
siastically.
An innovation was made at the suggestion of Mr. Ed. Goulet with regard
to tbe appointment of committees. Instead of tbe committees, chairmen
and all, being named by a nomlhatln;
committee, and tben adopted oy the
full board, the chairmen were elected
by the board,- and instructed to
choose their own colleagues and announce their names at the next meeting.
The following were elected chairmen of the different committees: Agriculture, E. G. Traves; commerce, F.
C. Cook; fisheries, M. Monk; lumber,
J. G. Robson; membership, T. D. Sheriff; navigation, H. P. Vidal; transportation, F. Davis; postal, A. W. McLeod; finance, E. H. Bands; legislative. Ed. Goulet; roads and bridges,
W. J. Kerr, and advei Using, F. A.

Before adjourning the board voted
on the recommendation of the finance
committee a grant of $50 to the-Pacific Highways Association.

Mrs.   Oldham,   for  a  few   months   bo-
lore joining her son in Athelmer. of the 3ha��S'llran ln Mr- McCormack:
It takes the Bpirit of the lovable Irish
I vagabond to bring out all tliere is in
"Molly    Hawn,"   and   when   he   had
I reached its conclusion theie wis nothing to be added to its interpretation.
With three exception*, tlie program
j was wholly selected from Irish song.
I The audience was Irish in about the
iiame proportion; not in years have
tliey   had   the  old   melodies   brought
! home tothem so appealingly uh tliey
were brought home last night. An atmosphere redolent of the stiamiock
and the rose surcharged their hearts;
ln fancy they roamed over Kiln's
green lields and rolling bills; under
azure skies by lakes of blue they
breathed the spirit of the olden days
until the last echo or "The Evening
Song," a sweet benediction In music
and word, brought tliem back to the
materia] In life.
Miss Narelle was altogether captivating in her work. Possessed or a
rich soprano, she pleased nt every ap
pearame, and quite won Ihe hearts
of thc Scotch In the house by her rendition of "Coming Through the live."
MIbb Narelle Is proud nt a king line o."
Irish ancestry; Mr. McCormack i* a
native of old Erin, nnd not the least
pleasing feature or the entertainment
was their clear enunciation of the
Words of their numbers In a breezy
Irish brogue, which lent much color
to their efforts.
Away down on tho program Is one
line reading:
"Mr. Bpencor Clay al tbe piano."
Mr. Clay'i work stood out command-
ingly. There was n perfeel bond of

Not Property Thunder.
Even the greatest actor-managers
do not know all there is to be known
about stagecraft, to judge from a curious story concerning Sir Herbert
Beerbohm Tree,, says the London
Times.
It appears that at the rehearsal of a
certain play at ills Majesty's .Theatre
a wonderful climax had been reached,
which was to be heightened by the effective use or the usual thunder and
lightning, The stage carpenter was
gl\< n the order. The words were
spoken, and Instantly a noise whicn
resembled ;i succession ot pistol shots
was heard ofT the wlngB.
"What on earth aro you doing,
man?" shouted Sir Herbert, rushing
behind Ihe scenes. "Do you call that
thunder''    ll'H not a bit like It."
"Awfully aorry, sir," responded the
carpenter, "bul the fact Is sir, I
couldn't hear you because of the
storm.    That  was real  thunder, air.'

THE NEW RULES.
���������       'A^V",
British House of Lerdt Is Now Prse-
tlcallyr a Powerless "*ttiy.
The talkinR-ihop'* shutter* are
down, and Parliament is at work
again. But "thini* is changed." In
place of an ancient, long-threatened
Constitution, there is to-day the mc*
mentous "Parliament Bill"���now, of
course, an A^t���for dealing with disputes between thc two Houses as to
jegjalaH^ft proposed by the Commons.
' Uvyybody should understand what
tfils all important act provides.
First of all, the historic "Budget
Crisis" of a couple oJ yesrs'ago can
never happen again. All bills which
simply impose new tatter, or alter old,,
ones, which deal with the National
Debt ��� in short which directly affect
the national income or expenditures���
all comprehensively known as
"Money bills" ��� are in future to be
subjected t5 a spe<Al treatment.
"Bill" is, ijc the way. a word used
ever since the time of Henry V!. 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 Speakers duty to certify tbat it
is truly a Money bill, and nothing
more, and thereupon it will so to the
House of Lords, which House ia
given one month to consider what it
will do. As a matter of fact, it is
practically Hobson'i choice. For if the
Lords do not pass the bill unaltered
within one month, the Commons are
entitled to send it straightway to hi*
Majesty  for royal assent.
There is, however, a provision which
enables the Commons to extend the
month's grace, if they think fit to accept any amendment* proposed by
the Lords.
Naturally, considerable responsibility is thrown upon the Speaker in having to decide whether or not a bill is
technically, a Money bill, and he ll
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 giveu to the
Lords. Other bills will follow a different course.
This is what 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 there is an end of the
matter for that session. Next session
the Commons may past the same bill
again, and a second time the Lords
may reject it.
In yet a third session the Commons
may pass that bill; but tbi�� is the last
opportunity the'Lords will have, for if
they reject the bill for a third time,
it is to be presented to His Majesty
for the royal assent. Here again the
Speaker's certificate is rec aired���thia
time to the effect that the I-ords have
had three opportunities ot accepting
the bill, but have reject"*! il each
time. If the Lords amend the bill and
then pass it, and the Commons do
not accept the alterations, the bill is
to be regarded as having been rejected
by   the   Ix>r <is.

with the appointment before the publication of the officii announcement
were those of a Recorder, a Metropolitan magistrate, a well-known K.C.

An Aged MTirrster..
Probably the oldeBt officiating- minister of any denomination is Rew. Alfred Brandon., who though he is jurt
past his ninety-filth birthday, still
preaches at least onee a month in
the little creeper-clad1 Baptist chapel
near his home in Drayton Gardens,
Chelsea. Mr. Brandon has been a
minister in CheTsea sixty-four years,
snd hae-lived1 there seventy-two. A
remarkable facl concerning Mr. Brandon is that be has been a cripple
sinee he was a baby of two., when
one of his legs became paralyzed.
Another wonderful Baptist minister is
Rev. Orey Hazlerigg. who., although
ninety-three years of age, i�� still en-
gagr-d in ministerial work in Leicester, in which town he has lived awt
worked for ft period of sixty-one years.
A City ef Philosophers.
The famous Dr. Samuel Johnson
wus born in Litchfield, to which town
he onoe paid a tremendous compliment. He had takeu Boswell on a
visit to  Litchfield.
"1 found." writes Boswell. "two
strange manufactures for so inland a
place, sail cloth ar.d streamers for
ships, and I observed them muking
some saddlecloths end dressing sheepskins. But upon the whole the hu.��y
hand of industry seemed to be quite
slackened. 'Surely, sir.' said I. 'you
ure an idle set of people.' 'Sir,' said
