was that smoking be allowed. Frag-

unprecedented in the municipal annals of Westminster.
Communications were read relative
to the dredging of tho N'orth Arm of

Alderman Kellington asked concerning the tetition for the paving of

When asked his opinion on the matter. Councillor McDonald, of ward
five, said he concurred with his near
neighbor, Mr. Fau Vel.
"if those interested and bac'.i of the
scheme woul! stop to realize the expense of fitting up a municipal hall,
engaging staff and purchasing road

like a bomb." South (Vancouver and
Point Grey have been fighting the

The sanguine expectations at   the-
beginning of the day were that   the-

miners,   dramatically   summoned   by
the premier, would    reach an   agreement that wouid end the struggle, but.
these were replaced by the gloomiest'

Federal  Rout  Reported at Jimenez���
Fierce Fighting���Two Generals
Mexico City, Marcli 25.���Apparently
redablo messages received by El
lmparclal report a federal rout ��t
Jimenez. General Salas, federal
commander, ls reported to have committed suicide. Both Generals Bian-
quet au.l Teiiez are reported wounded: other officers were killed and 50
officers were taken prisoners to Chihuahua together with many privates.
General Orozco Is reported moving toward Toireon. All federal troops are
said to have retreated to that point. ���
Jimenez, Mexico, March 25.���At 'i
o'clock this afternoon the buttle of
CorralltoB, begun yesterday, continued
furiously, in the rebel camp thd federal dead were estimated at 400 and
the rebel mortality at 100. The estimate of the government losses is
based by General Campa on inter
views with prisoners taken. Probably
they are exaggerated to an e.\tent.
Paris, March 25.���The most recent
exploit of the band of road pirates
who have put rural France in a state

The feature of today's series 01
crimes was the rapidity with which
they were committed. An automobile
was stolen by the bandits as it was
passing through the historlcuT forest

at a quarter past 8 o'clock. From
that plaoe it was traced to Paris and

Coastwise Trade Should Be Free, Say
Members of Transportation
Messages urging the necessity o(
allowing Ameiican vessels engaged In
coastwise traffic to use the Panama
Canal, when completed, without the
payment of tolls, recently were sent
oy the transportation uuieau of tno
New Seattle Chamber of Commerce to
members of the House of Repiesenta-
tives' committees on Interstate and
oceanic commerce and to Washington's representatives and senators at
the national capital, says the Seattle
Times. The messages were sent oy
W. A. Meats, manager of the transportation bureau, following a meeting
of the members, who declared that the
subject of free tolls is one on which
rests the future of Pacific Coast shipping.
Members of the bureau and Mr.
Mears, its manager, take the standpoint that the advantages of the canal
alone for defensive purposes In time
of war justify its construction; that
free tolls are required to build up a
waning merchant marine, and tnat
to tax American ships engage! in

upon the present generation the task

Everyone remembers the necessity
of calling the Oregon from this coast
to Cuba at the outbreak of tlie Spanish-American war," says Mr. Mears,

every patriotic American when that
tremendous voyage was completed
and the Oregon arrived at her destia
Our  Eyes Opened.
"Had we been at war with any firs:.-
class power, our unprotected Paciflc
Coast would have been attacked and
our west coast cities destroyed before
I assistance could have been rendered.
This opened our eyes to the situation.
j I have no hesitancy in stating   that
' this largely influenced our action ln
j taking the great l,enterprise-'in hand.
Therefore, if my reasoning is correct,
the greatest  end  to be    obtained ln
building this canal was self-protection
���the    ability   to    defend    ourselves
from all quarters at the same time.
"What wus the next great end io be
obtained? Manifestly to stimulate and
greatly increase our  interstate   commerce by water;  to allow (he manufactures and producers of one section
of the country to freely, speedily anil
cheaply ship their products to another
section by water; to open a route by
wliich the cities bordering' on the Atlantic Coast, the Gulf of Mexico, the.

Sanitary   Inspector. Comptroller.      anxious as Boston, Philadelphia, lliltl-
of Australia. New Zealand, China.
Japan,'India, the Straits Settlements
and all other Oiiental countries. It ls
therefore aetonisiilng that writers'on
the Atlantic Coast snould support the
idea, as they have done, that the commerce of the various states of the
Union should be hampered by a canal
toll of $2 a ton, simply with the avowed purpose of preventing a diminution of the revenue of transcontinental railroads.
"The United States spends million.-,
of dollars annually Improving our
river and harbors. It is a thing that
should be dune. But what would the
citizens of any community say; what
would they do if the United Statea
should say: 'We will improve your
rivers and harbors, but thc people
who are most interested���those living
in the territory immediately affected
���must pay the bill?'
Some Deadly Parallels.
"What would New York say If all
the money spent by the government
in improving its channels to tbe open
sea should be repaid to the government by a direct charge on the tonnage passing through those channels?
Does anyone Imagine that if the government   entered  into  the   project of
developing the Mississippi river channel so that the commerce of Chicago,
.St. Louis and the Mississippi Valley
should float down that stream to the
lea, thai those cities and the contiguous territory should pay the' bill?
"What about tolls through the St.
Mary's Fulls Cun.'il, commonly known
86 the Soo Canal? The slate of Michigan built it. The government too!. It
over and enlarged It, e.xepending largi.
sums of money on It. In 1886 an act
was passed b.v congress abolishing all
tolls on government-owned canals and
thirty years after that date lhe government took this canal over from
the stale of Michigan and spent itl
money oil it.
"Why did the government pass that
legislation? What would a New Vork
shipper think about imposing tolls on
his traffic through it? What would
he, or anyone else In the United
States, have said should even the Idea
of taxing Interstate commerce by an
imposition of tolls been broached?
Tliere are no lolls charged on either
the Erie canal or the Welland canal
Why  the  Charge?
"Uow, then, can any man, us did

more, Savannah, Charleston, Mobile,
New Orleans or Galveston and the
cities of the Pacific Coast to prevent
auy trammels, any exactions, any tolls
to be placed on our interstate commerce?
���The one reason, and the only
reason that seems to be advanced Is
that unless a toll is Imposed perhapu
the transcontinental railroads miglit
be injured, lt is by belief thut tliat
possibility will work out as it has lu
Germany, where the government owns
bosh railroads and canals. There it is
fully understood that the canal routes
are meant for the transportation ot
sugar, salt, iron and commodities that,
do not require haste in their transportation, an;! are not 'seasonable
goods.' Rail tariffs, therefore, are
fixed with po idea of competing for
such traffic, tbe roads Increasing the
traffic on those commodies that must
be handled by the swifter Eervice.
Canal Is to Assist.
"lt is not tlie province of our government to protect the railroads Irom
the advantages to be derived by our
own people by the building of our own
canal, and thus to defeat one of the
prime objects of its construction. We
are constructing the canal to assist
our people in Intercommunication; let
no one say that It shall be so operated
���is to defeat that one of the aims for
which it is bebig constructed.
"Let us not, moreover, be In such a
hurry to lay the tax for all this on the
present generation. Let ua give ourselves a show���the very- tcoplo now
living, who conceived and warranted
the execution of this great task. It
makes no difference whether the canal pays its cost of operation or not.
We have constructed our naval defense in time of war. We shall no
longer be forced to senl our Dreadnoughts around Cape Horn In time ol
"This alone ls worth what it cost;
to operate the canal, whether we
charge anybody any toll or not. It is
certainly worth enough to U3 livin,
Americans, so that we may allow ourselves the privilege of utilizing in our
own ships and under our own flag, our
own property free of charge to the
Americans who use it."

The histbi^1 of the past few years.
ahe condition^ prevailing at the present time k'ria'the questions now vexing the corporations of the Lower
Mainland all point to the institution
of some central body that can speak
with equal'volte for all, for Burnaby
and South Whcbuver, for Westminster
and Vancouver. The question of inter-

with particulars of time and placfe.
This startling incident resulted
from a tew remarks made by me at
the close of the meeting ot the Central Ratepayers1. Association. 1 reminded the members that their work
of co-operation with the governing
bodies' should extend to and include
matters     ln     connection   with     the
schools. For Instance, I had received
information from two or three persons, whose names I had not the permission to use, thut the spirit of patriotism to the British flag was not i
sufflcently inculcated ln our schools.
I did not say our Burnaby schools in
particular and I suggested tnat the
delegates present who had children
attending the schools should endeavor
to ascertain whether it was a fact
that the march tunes were American,
and further to ascertain whether
there was';fthy truth in a statement
that had. hMMBMla to me that school
children..;we_rfl_.eJspeeted, in. .the-course
of their exercises, to salute the American flag as well as the British emblem. If, upon inquiry, they met with
any confirmation of these assertions.
It would prove useful if they would,
at a subsequent meeting, bring forward any evidence bearing upon the
matter so that the members of the
school board might have the data
placed before them. I distinctly said
land this can be borne out by any
delegate that was present), tbat 1
made no charges but sought information of particular Interest to every
British parent and that I cdnsidered
that, as such statements had reached
me, wo ought to be placed in a position from our personal investigation
of giving a flat denial to the insinuation. With this end in view 1 besought the co-operation of every
member of the association.
This, then, is the molehill, the
World must be responsible for the
mountain. 1 have no excuse or apology to offer for having sought for the
elucidation of complaints that had

The people of this   peninsula    are

approaibhjfejourney .to London in the

is a confession   of   this   need.   i.Mr.

structions of the press. Judging
however, from Ihe fact that at a mass
meeting of Burnaby school children
beld on the day of the Sacring of His
Majesty King George the Fifth, at
which I was present, several children
conspicuously waved L'nited States
flags. I felt justified in asking
whether delegates could throw any
light upon the position t.iken by the
scliool authorities in this respect.
So far a3 my position Is concerned
I claim to be one of the builders of
the prosperity of our municipality
and every department of local government has received and will continue
to receive my unstinted support. In my
opinion, the efforts of the Ratepayers'
Association should be in a positive direction and not a negative one. It
should support whatever ls for our
good as a community without hamper
ing or heckling the local authority
At the same time, it is equally true
that if there are impediments to our
patriotic or communal interests they
should be removed.
Still, I must add. however, that the
wisdom of communicating to the public and to oilr boys and girls beforehand th<5 determination-,��!.fcije writers
to demand an apology is open to h
very grave question.
1 am, Sir, your ohefllent servant
ment, take the opponents of the Government in the country at a great disadvantage, and so wrest, if possible,
fraudulently and by violence, as it
were, another lease of absolute power
from the people.
We Invite your atention to the fact
that the Government, having put no
true issue before you In this election,
and having grossly abused its almoBt
absolute power as above recited, and
in other ways, such as Its prodigal
alienation of the public lands ami otner great natural resources, having forfeited your confidence, it becomes
your serious duty and interest to fix
the Issue yourselves, and to take advantage of this unjustifiable and ill-
conceived and devised general election to protect your own and the
country's interests for the future by j
insuring at the least that an effective
Opposition shnll be returned to the
legislature which you are now about
to elect, as some curb and chftcfc, upon unlimited) pretentions and encroachments hy the Government. Wo
enjoin you that it Is at your peril, al
the peril of the country, that you fail
to do so.
We also present for your consideration, as the platform upon which the
Liberal candidates stand ia this election, the comprehensive and progressive political program adopted by the
Provincial Liberal Convention recently held at Vancouver, and including
such essential features as: Free public lands for settlers���no more public
lands for speculators, advances to
settlers on easy terms to assist in
clearing, dyking, etc.; a progressive
and well balanced railway pollcyV-in-
cluding immediate construction fl ,-i
railway to Peace River; conserving,
surveying and selling only by public
competition to actual users such timber lands as have not been alienated
to speculators by the present Government; public protection In respect to
the price charged for coal, by government operation of coal mines so as
to regulate prices; needed practical
reforms in our educational and taxation systems; redistribution and fair
voters' lists, and woman suffrage:
workmen's compensation without litigation, a Provincial department of labor, and a system of industrial insurance; exclusion of Orientals and strict
sanitary regulation of tho3e In the
country; extension of municipal powers; public ownership of utilities; lo-
oal control of the liquor traffic, anl
the placing of a local optio:i law on
the statute books, thus enabling anv
municipality that might desire to take
a vote of its ratepayers on the question; uuuuiug oi tne public accounts
by an auditor independent ot the Government; immediate steps to restore
tlie Ashing industry to white nsner-
men; adoption of tne 'ionens system
ot registration, etc.
The Government's attitude toward
these retorms has been uippantiy and
contemptuously epltomizeu by Fre-
ni.ei- incHriae as "a joae," by Attorney General Bowser as "a crazy
mult patchwork."
As the Liberal candidate in this
city, 1 ask your suffrages in this election, not as a .favor to me personally,
but on the grounds above lecited. i
asic you to carefully consider and
weigh those giounas: On tne one
hand, the criilcisms of the Government and tne reasons advanced wliy
at least an enective Opposition should
be returned to the house as a check
und curb upon tbe Government; on
tne other bund, the well considered
planks Of the Liberal platform, which
a responsible party���one of the two
great political parties of the country
���has made itself responsible for, and
upon your attitude toward and action
upon which, In this election, your sincerity as electors, as citizens, as pto-
lessed advocates ef these reforms,
will be Judged, by the political parties
aud by the people.
It will be hardly necessary for mo
to add that I am politically opposed to
the present Government, and I think
I have given sufficient reasons tor
that position. At the same time, I
entertain no perEonal animus to��vard
any of Its members, and am. us is
known, a personal friend of Premier
McBride. Should 1, if elected, flnd
myself, as is probable, a member of
an Opposition party, 1 would deem It
my duty, consistently with that position, to give the Government credit
and independent support for all measures and acts in the Interests of this
constituency aud the public Interests.
Having well weighed the reasons
and arguments which have been pui
before you, through the public press,
by means of public meetings, and in
other wayB, I ask you to exerclso
your franchise Intelligently and conscientiously as you shall julge to ie
in the true and lasting interests of the
country���not to lay lt away 1u a.napkin, but exercise it on one side or the
other, as the great privilege and prerogative, the supreme act of sovereignty, of a free man and one of the
potential real rulers of the country.

and administratively���completely under their control.
The Government of today���the Provincial Government at Victoria���
known popularly from lis two uoinin-
ant members as the McBrlde-Bowser
Government, has brought tnis election
upon you, dissolved the House in the
middle of a legislative teim and appealed to Ihe people, as the Government declares, to obtain the verdict
of the electors on the recently enacted, signed, sealed und (irmly contracted railway policy ot the Governineii!.
We, tho Liberal party Of the pio\-
lnce, challenge tiii�� as a false, spurious, entirely non-esisient issue, Bince
tho Government through its aneoiute

whether the people approve or not.
Finding that the Issue put forward
by the Government as the excuse foi

undesirable and expensive general

positive and vital reasons���such as
the deferring of over-due redistribution and much needed revision of tho
voters' lists���why'a general election

that the very reasons why the election should not have been brought ou

Make Up Your Mind
You who have -been reiiina rr y ads for the past four weeks���you
know that some of these houses and lots have applied very strongly to
you. You have 'liked it over with the wife and said "I think I will go
in and see K*rr about this." But you don't come; you put It off anH
the loss is yours.   Now listen:
It may be that you don't know my business methods; you may have
an idea that the minute you step Into my office and talk to me about a
house or lot, I will be c��inj after; you strong and try to sell you something. You may think I won't give you a minute's peace until you havo
bought. Well, now, just forget that. It is wrong. You come if here
and tell me you would like to s:e this house at $4000, and I will show
it to you; take you there in my automobile; tell you all about It.
But if you don't want it���if it is too big or too small, or doesn't
suit you for some reason, there t* an end to it. I am satisfied if you
are satisfied. I know It is a cood buy for somebody, and I'd sooner
make a friend by not sclli:-^ him something than annoy a client by insisting to ckse a deal with him.
Nov;���this Is personal to you���I want you to come In an:! till me In
what piece of property you are interested. Don't keep away thinking
that tomorrow will do. Tomorrow is a money losing proposition when
Westminster real estate is concerned. Come Tn rh'ht away; in five minutes you will know whether you want that property or not, an:! that wlll
be the end of the business.    Doesn't this coun:! fair?

British preponderance over the two
next strongest powers had been a declining one. From the end of 1006
to the end of 1911. 472,733 tons of armoured vessels became effective for
Germany and the United States, as
compared with 414,790 tons for Great
Britain, and this, coupled with the
fact that our loss from ships becoming obsolescent was much greater,
has reduced our relative superiority
to its present equivalent of 13 per
cent. in completed Ijreadii3ugnt3
only, our preponderance over the two
powers amounts to 41^ per cent.
It was pointed out tu the Times of
Marcli 2, 1911, that "The piesent

early and adequate measures are tak

must be relatively larger than in th.il

statement will be realized by an examination of the prospective position

borne In mind In Axing the extent of
the new program for 1912-13.
To the armoured displacement she
already possesses, Germany will add

and, assuming only two ships are laid

been struck off the list by that time,
reducing the total by 71,646 tons. Her
aggregate effective armoured displacement In 1915 should, therefore, be
796,060 tonB. The United States, assuming the Navy Department to lie

Experts In the human hair trade
In Hongkong say that If buyers of human hair ln tbe United States expect
a great oversuppjy-as a result of
queue cutting in China they are likely
io be disappointed. Instead c." u.i
ovcrsupply the changes now going on
are c.utilng off the chief sources, of
supply in China, and there Is likely
soon to be a decided falling away.
Contrary to the general Impression
in the United States and Europe, thu
queues when cut are not sold. This
is an absolute rule, so far as south
China ls concerned, say Consular and
Trade Reports, and it is the custom
all over those portions of China from
which the writer has been able to secure tellable data on this subject. Ths
queues, when cut, are preserved, according to general statement, for burial with the owner.
The chief supply has come from
Chinese barber shops, where, in tbe
course of shaving portions of tho
heads of customers, considerable long
hair ls accidentally removed. Now
that queues are cut, however, Chinese
barbers have no more long hair to dispense of than harbors ln the United
States. A contraction of the Bupplv ln
Hongkong already ls apparent, and
but for the hesitancy of American and
other foreign buyers to meet the market here the pi ices for supplies locally would have gone up. As lt Is, prices
here are remaining flrm In spite of an
Indisposition on the    part of foi eign

The declared value of exports of human hair from Hongkong to the United States In 1011 was $2,921,768, as
compared with $669,137 In 1910, $327,-
669 ln 1090, and $92,209 In 1908. Shipments from the Hongkong market ln
1911 to all countries were much larger
In volume than the year before, aggregating 1.769,833 pounds in cont-rst
to about 1,200,000 pounds In 1910.
A great proportion of the shipments, however, was of low grado

than for false hair���for example, a

Tliere is nothing new about the idea of I Goods lust   arrived
using Sage for restoring the color of the
hair. Our grandmothers kept their hair
dark, glossy and abundant by the use of
a simplo "Sago Tea." Whenovcr their
hair fell out or took on a dull, faded or
streaked appearance, they made a brew
of Sage leaves, and applied it to their
hair with wonderfully beneficial effect.
Nowadays we don't have to resort to
the old-time tiresome method of gathering tho herbs and making the tea. This
is done by skillful chemists better than
wo could do it ourselves; and all wo
have to do it to call for the ready-made
product, Wveth's Sage and Sulphur
Hnir Remedy,  containing Sage in tne
Eroper strength, with the addition of
ulphur, nnother old-timo scalp remedy.
This preparation gives youthful color
ancl beauty to the nair, and is one of
tho best remedies you can use for dandruff, dry, feverish, itching scalp, and
falling hair. Get a fifty cent Dottle
from your druggist todav, and you will
be surprised at the quick results. All
druggists sell it, under guarantee that
the money will be refunded if the
remedy is not exactly us represented.
