SUBMIT TRAM BYLAW
Length of Proposed Franchise Shortened to 37 Years-
Would Preserre Kingsway as Residential Street���Voting
,   Within Thirty Days���Reduction in Fares Is Promised.
��� Edmonds, Oct. 29.���The British
Columbia Electric company franchise,
which has been the topic ln household, ln office and on tbe public platform during the past two years ln
Burnaby wlll be resubmitted to tbe
people within the next thirty days.
This course was taken.by the council
this evening after Reeve J. W. Weart
had given a general resume of "��� th*'
proceedings of the joint transportation committee which during the past
year has been trying to arrive at
some settlement with the B. C. E. R.
. regarding a franchise which would
cover practically the whole of the
dower mainland peninsula to the west
|of New Westminster.
The discussion at the council meet
| Ing was brought to a head by a mo
; tion of Councillor McGregor, seconded
by Councillor Fau Vel. that the solid
tors be requested to draw up a by-law
to be submitted to the electorate
within the next thirty days. The motion wsb carried without a dissenting
vote.
The by-law of 1910 was passed by
;the council, and a year later was repudiated by the ratepayers at a tim?
Iwhen the people of the municipality
(believed they could get better terma
!' frcm the electric corporation.
Company's Position.
Reeve Weart. ln opening the    dis
cussion, presented three letters from
Acting Manager U. It. Q. Conway, of
the B. C.  E.  It., which showed that
while the company was averse to reopening the question   until   the   law i
suit between the B. C. E. R. and Bur-'
naby Is Anally settled tn the    privy
council it would consider tbe resub-
initial ot the franchise by-law ehould
the councll so decide.
Two clauses were mentioned as b ���
couver Power company within thj
next two months at points laid out b.v
the municipal engineer.
Engineer MacDonald stated to the
council that it was well nigh impos
slble to purchase water pipe at the
present time. The rates for same had
advanced 30 to 40 per cent, during the
past' six months.
"To alleviate the complaints receive!
from several districts, the engineer
was instructed to purchase a quantity
of pipe from a private dealer for
$3500.
The Improvement to tbe Boundary
road asked for by forty-two petition-
erf was referred to the engineer.

AMBULANCE CHARGES
ARE OBJECTED TO
Alderman Dodd Move* fcr Abolition-
Steps Regarding Opening Library
On  Sunday.
Declaring that the whole principl-
of charging and collecting tees wa��
objectionable and liable to work &
hardship on sick persons,' Aldermaii
Dodd, ln tbe city council last night
protested at the charge of $2.50 now
being made for the use of the auto
mobile ambulance, and suggested that
it be done away wilh entirely.
He also declared that the method
of collecting tbe fee was entirely dissatisfactory as in some cages where
the patient could not pay for the call
It was' charged to the doctors or th'
nurses of whatever Institution the
sick person''was taken to. lie had
also heard that Inquiry bad been made
before a call was made as to who
wag going to pay the fee for the ser
vice. The council decided to leave
the matter In the hands of the bealti-
and police committees to look into
and report.
Alderman Dodd again brought up
the matter of the closing of tbe library on Sundays and requested to
know why It should not be kept open
Alderman White, chairman of the library committee, stated that it was
very difficult to arrange for the opening on Sunday as there were only
two officials who could be left in
charge.
He suggested tbat Alderman Dodd
be asked to act in conjunction wltb
the library committee    to see    what
jould be arranged on the matter. This
ourse was adopted.
A special meeting called by the
organization committee of the Trade.;
and Labor counc'l was held last night
for the purpose of revivifying and reorganizing tbe somnolent Federal
Labor Union of this city.

It has been discovered by the clt}
council that a certain atrip of land
which  was promised   to Mr. Josepi
Crane ak a site tor the establishmen
of a shipbuilding yard adjoining th>
plot which,  If tne  by-law passes  tc
day wlll be leased to the Heaps Eng
neering company,  had  already  bun.
let to the Westminster Marine Way*
thus evolving a   situation   tbat   ha
been overlooked  in  the  negotiator
witb Mr. Crane.
The matter ,wsb brought up at th
councli Meeting last night by JMayc
Lee, wbo said that on looking Int
the matter   at the   request   cf   M:
Crane it was found that the 250 fee
affected had been leased to the Mar n
Ways for a term of ten years b.v tb
1009 council.   After tbe Heaps agre.
ment passes there will only be a strij
of about ten feet available,  so tha
the  city  has  practically   nothing   i.
the  Immediate  vicinity  to offer  M.Crane in lieu of   the   other   sectio.
which  it was proposed to lease    t<
him.   The whole matter was consider
ed to be very unfortunate ln view o.
the fact that the deal with Mr. Cran'
had been practically carried to com
pletion.
Alderman Cray asked if It aftectec
the Heaps by-law In any way ?    His.
worship answered that It did not. Oi
being  questioned  the . mayor  agreet
that no agreement in writing had bee.
made with  Mr.  Crane,  but the  250
teet hod been promised by resolution
he believed.   The suggestion of Aldei
man Gray  that the  finance commit
tee of the council  meet Mr. Cran'
and explain the situation to him wa;
adopted.

East Burnaby. Oct. 29.���With the
return of Mr. Thomas D. Coldicutt
who for the past month has been enjoying the sunny climes of th:
Southern Cal'fomlan coast it Is expected that municipal politics tn this
growing section of the Burnaby municipality will begin to sizzle.
Mr. Coldicutt will be back at his
office about November 3, and among
h's many friends his trip to the
Southern Pacific slope Is held to be a
foreruhner to a political announcement of hts candidature for e'ther the
reeveship or as representative for
ward three.
The complete silence of Reeve
Weart at the present stage regarding
pinning for re-elect'pn Is having somp
bearing upon the political movement
ts lt Is thought that should tbe reev.
decide to again male the run llttl.'
opposition would be accorded him o��
.iccouct of the progressive movemen
which Burnaby has experienced dur
ing the past two years.
Nevertheless Dame Rumor wlll per
slat In keeping to, the forefront and
lust aa soon aa one peraon gither:
the nerve to make an anneal to th*
electorate, this will be followed br
many others; Burnaby. during th��
past two years has earned the reputa
tlon of enjoying the hottest election
fight of any place on the lower main
land, and the winter.ot 1913-13 will
be, b- All indications, no exception to
tbe rule.

Muskogee, fckla. Oct 29.���Thrw
vouthful robbers held up a southbound Missouri. Kansas ft Texas
���rain south , of Eufaula. They compelled th�� engineer to detach tin? express and baggage bar ahd run them
ahead and than blasted and rifled the
the courts at the present time, thi;
introduces another phase to the al
ready many-sided situation. The com
munication was referred to the city
solicitor to report.
It was decided not to grant the re
quest. In the meantime at loast. of th
C. P. R. that the light adjoining tn
B. C. E. R. wharf on Eighth street t
removed in order   that   the   groun
might be available for the installatlo.
of a spur track ordered by the Do
minion board of railway commission
ers.    lt was stated that if the spu>
was inserted at tbe present time   it
would be of great disadvantage to th"
city on account of the fact that som
changes to the grade are In view.   A<
endeavor will be made to make som>
arrangements for the grade with th<
C. P. R., but falling that the railway
commission will be asked by the clt;
to rescind Its order.
Many Claim Damages.
As the result of certain grade*
whloh it is proposed to make on var
ous atreeta the city Is threatened
witb a number ot property damag<
clauses. Mr. O. B. Cros3, of th'
Brunette Saw Mill company, objected
to the filling In of Fifth avenue from
Second to First streets, and a pro
-test was voiced by a number of cit!
zens owning property on Fourth
avenue between Second and Thlr'
streets. Claims of damages wer:
threatened by all. The protests wer"
referred to tbe city solicitor. Mayo
Lee stated that it was a pity that ace'
things should be received when al*
tbe proposed improvements were io
tended for the beneflt rather than th��
detriment of the proner** owners.
Mr. J. J. Jones alao threatened tbe
eity wltb damages It it did not glv
assurance before October SO at ."���
o'clock that It would repair the dam
ase recently done to hie property on
Fourth street. In thl* connectloi
Alderman Kellington reported tha4
steps were being taken to remedy ths
trouble. 'i
Mr. C7 Gray, a realty man ot Van
couver. flled a claim ot damages o
*200 on account of a horae owned b.
him whloh had fallen through a dvk<
bridge on a road on Lulu Island. HI
claim was referred to the board o

governs everything that haa to d<"
with the sale et liquor whether whole
sale or retail, the cost and tenn o'
the license* tor retail liquor shops

All trade* people affected by the
new trajjof license bv-law will he notl
ward by the members of the committee, and, tJMingh Mr. Conway was not
prepared- to %xpres3 any opinion as
to whether tie, line would be built or
not, he stated that a party of surveyors would be put on the ground at
once to survey the proposed route.
As soon as the best means of get
tine; into communication with Port
Mbody are Tkstiertained and the various other matters ln connection with
the proposed route are thoroughly
gone iuto Mr. Conway intimated thai
it was his intention to take the matter to headquarters and secure tbeir
opinion on the matter. It would take
some considerable time before, tbe
company could Anally advise whether
it was possible to build the line.
The matter of tram communication
with Coquitlam, and various other
districts tributary to Westminster
were also taken up at the ineeting |
and Mr. Conway nppeared to be very
much impressed with the suggestions
of the committee.
Those present at the meeting were:
Mayor Lee, Aldermen Curtis and
White of .the. city councll; President
I. R. Du.')oan, nf the board of trade,
and W. p. Darfffff; of the Progressive
association. The conmittee
thoroughly satisfied with Mr.
way's statements.
located for such a great purpose. A
business institution requires a business proposition from a city as from-
any other commercial concern.

has been sanctioned by the mayor
and council after thorough Investigation, and, with ordinary knowledge ot
what the development of such an Industry means, 1 am satislied tbat a
vote for tbe by-law Is the only course-
consistent with good, sincere citizenship."

PRINCE ORDERED TO
BREAK ENGAGEMENT
Czar Won't  Allow Member  of   Royal
Family to Marry German
i Jewess.
Berlin, Oct. 29.���The engagement of
Berlin's greatest heiress, Fraulein von
Friedlanderfuld to Prince Alexander
Rcmanovsky, of Russia, announced on
Oct. 5, has been broken at the' command of the Czar.
The Imperial Russian family will
not consent to a matrimonial alliance.
between a Jewess and a prince ot the
royal blood and the prince has been
notified that he could carry out his
purpose of marrying the daughter of
the Gernian "coal king" oply by renouncing his rank, title and fortune
and suffering expulsion from Russia
and ex-communication from the Orthodox Church.
If he decided on the marriage, hc
was warned that hs propertcs and
prerogatives would be transferred
with reserve to his youngest brother,
Prince Serge Georgevitch. Prince
Alexander yielded to the czar's orders
and the betrothal has been declared
off.
Herr von Fredlanderfuld offered to
make over to his daughter's fiancee
more than the prince's pwn fortune
in the event of the marriage, but the
prince fears to incur the czar's displeasure and does npt relish the prospect of banishment from his own na
tive country.
He is deeply ln love with the
heiress and ls at present in the Crimea eating his heart out with disappointment and anguish, according to
a Berlin friend of the couple.
When Herr von Friedlanderfuld
was aaked If he wished to discuss the
affair, the coal king said:
"No engagement.exists between my
daughter and Prince Romanovsky."

ROUND THE MESS TABLE
BY THE  MARTIAN.
According to the Toronto Globe,
there was every possibility that one
Armand Lavergne, captain and adjutant of the Cist Montmagny Regiment
was to have been sent to the scat Oi
war in the Balkan peninsular as Canadian military attache, he being a 'personal friend ot Colonel Sam Hughes
and a good soldier." Political exigencies have decreed, however, that
the presence of this shining light ls
necessary to hls party just npw, for
which we ought to'feel truly grateful.
Personally, 1 think this ls only another of the war minister's spasmodic
effusions and I doubt whether the Imperial Government was ever duly approached in the matter. To qualify
' for Buch an appointment one must
have a certain amount of experience
which the adjutancy of a militia regiment will certainly never give, and It
would be a sinful waste of public
funds to entrust a difficult task requiring special professional knowledge to the futile attentions of an
amateur, however willing he may be.
It is absurd to think that a politician
should be able to see things with a
trained military eye on the strength
of a knowledge of war gained in a
drill shed on Thursday evenings. T"
my mind the official hangman would
be as ranch use. However, to be a
"personal friend" of Colonel Sam's is
undoubtedly a great recommendation,
a very weighty one at any rate.
Judging from the talk we hear   In
the armouries, the mllltla in general
are beginning to feel somewhat "fed-
up" on the   vagaries  of  the   worthy
minister.     Some of the extraordinary
statements wltl} which    he has   been
credited reflect a by no means creditable light upon the intelligence of the
forces of the Dominion, If he ls to be
taken  as a  representative   specimen.
For the life of me I cannot see wby
the port folio should not be held by a
soldier Instead of a man whose experience   Is  based    purely   on    politics.
However, I suppose there   must    be
some occult reason not apparent   to
the   ordinary vision.     The   fact   remains, however, that we are to be con
gratulated that we have escaped the
ridicule which would   have   certainly
fallen to our lot had we Bent as our
representative an inexperienced youth,
to  a  gathering   which   will   Include
some of the finest mlltary brains  of
Europe, simply on the grounds of personal friendship.   We have in Canada
some very highly-trained and   experienced staff officers, retained with the
salaries of specialists  as   Instructors,
or rather as  teachers  of  Instructors.
for the mllltla.   If it ls absolutely necessary for Canada to be  represented
In tho Balkans. It would be more economical and more profitable to send
one of them.    Aa a matter of fact  1
will wake up.and think It's time to do
something.
Sir Richard McBride's recent
speech at the convention at Revelstoke must have brought joy to the
hearts of all loyal British Columbians.
Guarded as his statements were, he
emphasized tbe' fact of our vulner
ability most strongly and urged Increased expenditure on the mllltla. I,
tor one, anxiously look to the day
when our "Dick" will be supreme at
Ottawa with the. people of Canada at
his back, standing as one man for the
maintenance of our ancient traditions,
and firmly resolved that Canada's
shores shall be, first, last and always,
Invulnerable, and that we shall have
the means of despatching efficient aid
to any other part of the empire, whenever the need arises.
Colonel Johnson presided at a concert given by the members of tho

successful evening was spent and a
most enjoyable one. After many good
and Interesting Items, a collection was
made which resulted In the sum of
flfty dollars being added to the fund.
Much credit is due to the members of
the local 'corps, both for the quality of
their performance and for tbe spirit
of kindliness which prompted it.

Lieutenant   Charles   Becker   Regains
Nerve and Is Ready to Face Court
Once More.
Kew York, Oct. 29.���Lieut. Charles
Becker, who haa shown   signs   of   a
hysterical   collapse   during   the   past
two days, had regained hia nerve today and wus the same collected, quiet,
calm man of iron that he was before
he heard hmself pronounced guilty of
murder in the first degree.    His bitterness of yesterday  had disappeared
and he had so far recovered his grip
| that he was ashamed of the impetuous statements which he bad allowed
I himself to make a few hours before.

Utica, N. Y., Oct. 29.���Mr. Jame3 S.
Sherman, vice-president of the United
States, is seriously ill and steadily
failing in his home here.
While his physician, Dr. Fayette H.
Peck, believes there is no immediate
danger ot death, yet the patient's condition is such tbat it ls a matter of
conjecture bow mucb longer he can
withstand the ravages of the disease
with which he is afflicted.
Dr. Peck at 8 o'clock tonight authorized this statement:
"Mr. Sherman has been sick all of
this year, due to the condition of the
kidneys, hardening of the arteries and
softening of the muscles of the heart,
which are somewhat stretched. Mr.
Sherman had an attack in the Adlrondacks, at Big Moose Lake, and I expected him to die. He got out of Big
Moose and improved steadily and satisfactorily until the latter part of
August. Since then his condition has
been aggravated and he has been
steadily falling.
"For the last thfcte weeks, since he
came back from Connecticut, where
he went to rest, he has been dressed
only once and that was a week ago
Friday. v.hen against my protest he
went to the polls to register.
"Mr. Sherman now Is in the condition which that sort of trouble leads
to and Is very seriously 111, but there
is. 1 believe, no Immediate danger of
death."
After a day of discouraging symptoms, Mr. Sherman rallied at nightfall and continued to show improvement during the evening. This is due
in no small measure to powerful medicines. Whether he can much longer
successfully combat tbe attack of
kidney trouble and complications is
doubtful. The members of his family
are with him constantly and his intimate friends have been notified that
he has been falling steadily.
Discuss Consequences.
Washington, Oct. 29.���The illness of

I    BeciVer's changed attitude makes it
I almost certain now that he wlll mak?

Should a vacancy ocur upon the Republican ticket, either before or after
election,    some    Republican    leaderj
here today argued the electors would
have power to vote for any candidate
for vice-president they might choose.
Precedents were admitted to be lacking,  but it  was declared only  party
dsclpllne and honor bad In the   past
bis   or-  bound electors to vote for their party
was  to J nominees.    No one suggested that a
choice   by   the   Republican   National
Committee or its Executive Committee would fail to receive the support
of lhe Taft electors. |
Ordinarily should there be no vice-
president the president pro tem of
tbe senate would preside over tbat
body, and the line of succession to
the presidency would be to the secretary of state. For the last several
months tbe senate has been unable to
aeree upon a president pro tem and
tbat office has been vacant.
Some ttme ago, it was learned today, Chairman Charles P. Hilles cf
tho Republican National Committee
made exhaustive Inquiries as to tho
necessity of certifying to the vat'bue

Republican candidates, and oo a result certified the names of Taft and

A PROGRESSIVE MEASURE.
Today the Voters of the city aro
aaked to express their opinion upon
a measure of very great Importance
to Westminster, the Heaps Engineer-
ink by-law, which has received the
��ndorsatlon of the councli, of th*
board of trade, and of the Progressive
association.
Its fate now rests with the people.
and we trust that Ihey will consider
the forward policy with which this
move is in line, and will again show
to the outside world���as they did las1
June���that In those things which
make for the progress of the city
upon solid lines there is left no room
for doubt when Westminster goes to
the polls.
We need scarcely remind the voters
that the passing cf this -by-law means
the retention in Westminster of an
industry which has grown up with
the city, and whicli has supported
through those years a considerable
number of citizens here. But more
than this it means that at once tho
roll of employees ls to be increased,
and that, within a short time, a great
engineering works giving employment
to the population of a small town
wlll be evolved. I
The. results of its rejection are
fairly obvious, but we would point
out that from an advertising view,
the city can hardly expect to attract
outside capital for new Industrial enterprise upon the Fraser when' it becomes known that a native industry
finds it impossible to carry on here.
We understand that the whole works
will be moved to Vancouver Ahould
the by-law be defeated.
We would urge upon all to register
their votes, for it may be taken for
granted lliat those who oppose th?
measure will record their opinion. We
feel that these will be few and that
thc electorate ln general will endorse a measure which will retain so
important an industrial asset to.Westminster.

The only thing the Democrats are out

The news that the tracks of th"
Highland Park cut-off would be con
nected with the existing tracks of tlK
company in this city within the hex'
two daya, was officially given out b>
tbe B. C. E. R. yeaterday afternoon.
The grading gangs have reached
Thirteenth street at tho rear cf the
car shops and a single track will be
nut-in on the lines to the rear of thc
car sheds. At the present time, thr
trolley wire has been strung to with
m a few feet of the grading opera
t;oii3 which has allowed the line care
and ballasting trains to be operated
from the junction at Highland Park
In an Interview with Mr. W. H. El
>r,n, acting interurban manager in the
absence of Mr. Allan Purvis, a repre
sentative of this paper gleaned tht
ict that no delay would occur in the
early opening of the double track line
between New Westminster and Vancouver.
"The opening of this new line,'
aid Mr. Elson. "is an absolute neces-
tltv to the company In order to cope
with the increasing Dassenger traffic
l>ich is being carried between the
two cities.
"We are  continually hearing complaints from the traveling public, but
it the present time It has been found
impossible to keep a perfect running
schedule owing to the singe track be- !
tween Hghland Park and this city.   If I
one of the Interurban cars follows   a
Vancouver city car from Cedar Cottage to Vancouver terminal and vice
versa, It means that the former car
Is   delayed,   which   also   means   that
the car waiting on the switches   between Highland Park and New Weatminater is also delayed."
According to Mr. Elson, It ts expected that the run between the two
11 ties will be made easily In 45 to 50
minutes and the new Pne will also al
'nw the company to operate a ten
minute schedule lf such ls found
neceaaary.
When asked about the proposed
''alf hour service on the Burnabv
branch of the system, Mr. Elson stated that such had been considered for
some little time, and that plans were
being formulated for operating of four
cara on the run Instead of the present
two.
Twelve of the new cars are now on
their way between here and MooBe
Jaw and Bhould arrive In New West- \
mlnater within the next week.

like thirty cents will be waged.
The Patrick brothers have about
come to the end of their string as far
as waiting for the eastern clubs to
move goes, and, unless definite assurance ls forthcoming this week -.the*]
wires will be kept red hot getting in
communication with several Btars who
have been signed by the magnates
back east, and who were not tamper-
���'ed with by Lester Patrick while visiting there. While he honored the contracts of the N. H. A. the coast magnate was pot caught napping and prepared for any steps that the N. H. A.
might take when he returned home.
The    Patricks have    optional contracts right now with half a dozen of I
the best men    ln the east,    players
Whose departure    would    mean   the
breaking up of the National Hockey
association, and these papers will be I
taken  up should  tbe  eastern  league I
carry out their threat    to   raid    the I
coast league.   Fred Taylor, Art Ross, i
Didler Pitre, Skene Ronan, Hack Dar- j
ragh. Jack McDonald and   the   Cleg-j
horn brothers, would all be willing to'
come  west,  but    Patrick    bbw    they
were signed and left them alone.
Hvland and Johnson may have signed, but unless Sammy Llchtenheim,
that Drlnce of notoriety seekers, drops
this high handed talk and accepts thn
olive branch offered by Lester Patrick, some of the eastern moguls wlll
seen be rendy and willing to call
xjuits.
