Handling of Freight by G.N.R.
Provokes Much Advene
Criticism*
Rearrangement Caused by Cut-off li
Detrimental to Community���Vagaries of Postofflce.
Edmonds, Dec. 18.��� Sharp criticism
of tbe methods employed by the Great
Northern Railway Company in regard
to their freight handling and alleged
exorbitant charges was in evidence at
the Burnaby Board of Trade meeting
held this evening.
Mr. A. Scott, president of the Burnaby Lumber Company, said tbat he
had Buffered several delays ln receiving cars for lumber from points on
thc northern section of the municipality.
ln one particular instance Mr. Scotl
related tbat a car of lumber left thf
mill at Barnet consigned to Edmonds.
The ONK. authorities held the car
at New Westminster waiting their
charges although he does a great
amount of business wltb the B.C.E.H.
which company should take charge of
the collection. After some delay tbe
car was switched to the B.C.E.R. and
lt arrived at Kdmonds six days and
seven nights after lt bad lett North
Burnaby.
Laughed at Him.
He said he had tried to obtain redress from the officials at Westminster but they simply laughed at him.
For this car of lumber he had been
compelled to pay $39 for freight
charges, whereas he could obtain u
cur from any point on the Praser valley line or way in the Interior for such
a sum. He Btated tbat unless some
remedy was obtainable he would be
compelled to quit doing husiness at
Edmonds and move to some other location.
A special committee composed of
Messrs. W. S. Rose, A. Scott, T. D.
Coldicutt, D. C. Patterson and W. Mc-
Curach were appointed to Interview
the railway officials on the matter.
.Failing a satisfactory understanding
lt Is probable that the question will
be taken before the railway commis-
sion. . ���'ttijildb^i
Is Hurting Trade.
Complaints that the operation of the
new cut-off of the B.C.E.R. and tin
rearrangement of the ctty and Edmonds servica were detrimental to the
community, were made by soveral of
these present. A special committee
wlll interview Interurban Manager
Purvis on this matter.
Tbe postal aervlce of several districts In Burnaby connecting with tin-
Vancouver and New Westminster of
flees was brought up for discussion.
It was pointed out tbat a letter mailed from Edmonds to Royal Oak first
went to Westminster, thence to Vancouver and back again to Royal Oak
A similar case applies also to Jubilee
although McKay enjoys a service wltb
each city.
Malls, Milk, Flre.
Delays with Burnaby Lake were
alSo brought up and a committee,
Messrs. Lovery, W. S. Rose and A.
Scott will wait upon Inspector Greenfield asking for redress.
Mr. H. Swordor asked that the
council take up the matter of pure
milk supply and do away with the
watered stuff that was being handed
out.
Ktre protection was brought up by
Messrs. Macpherson and Jackman and
tbe council wlll be requested to lay-
aside sufficient money In the 101?

by the Chilliwack train suffering from
bruises he sustained about 9:30 o'clock
when tbe caboose of a B. C. E. R.

feet before the train was pulled up.
The single track was blocked for
a while but at 11:30 o'clock enough
was cleared to allow the incoming
train to leave Chilliwack.
According to Inquiries at the Royal
Columbian Hospital Battson's Injuries
are not considered very serious.
BEGIN OPERATIONS

At noon yesterday tbe Canadian
Pacific Hallway put in operation Its
first section of double track in British
Columbia. The atrip of line in ques
tlon stretches from Westminster Junction to Vancouver and is twenty mile*
in extent.
The opening of the line followed
the inspection of District Engineer
Kerr, who found it to be In a very
satisfactory condition.
The double tracks run right Into thc
C. P. R. yards and terminals at Coquitlam and in this connection It ls
Intimated at the Vancouver headquarters of the company that a liberal
share of next year's appropriation will
be used in further double tracking
and extending the terminal work

WHILE CANADA DID NOTHING
OTHER COLONIES CONTRIBUTED
Hon. Geo. Foster Claims That Premier Borden Has Followed out Pledges and by Taking
Advice of Admiralty Is Assured of Country's Support. Contrasts Attitude of Liberals
Who When Australia, New Zealand and Britain Planned Four Units on Pacific Preferred Fiasco as Niobe and Rainbow. Emergency Exists in German Competition.
OTTAWA, Dec. 18.���Hon. Geo. E.
Foster continued tbe naval debate in
the house today, and in the course of
a long speech after surveying the result of the various conferences and
the increase of contributions by van
ous colonies ln 1902, said that Canada,
however, never having made a contribution still did notblng. But sbe promised tbat she would take up lh.-
question of naval defence in so far
as respected the formation of Cana
dlan naval cadets.
Then came tba conference of 190!
when the representatives of Canada
were met as usual by the statement
of prime minister and first lord of
the admiralty. They were not beg
Ring for help, said Mr. Foster, as they
had not been in 1902. England never
had and never will beg her colonies
for help and the fact that she has not
done so and will not do bo was not
to be taken as an excuse for not helping.
It is," said Mr. Foster, "the very
strongest  appeal  that  can   be mad*
with honest loyal hearts for help.'*
Other Colonies Acted.
While the other colnies were continuing their contributions and un
dertaking new duties, Canada's repre
sentatives had only a cry of a policy
and the note of misrepresentation���
the cry ot apology that Canada could
do nothing because sne was operat
ing a fisheries protective servlco
which was fairly burdensome, she
was instituting wireless stations
which cost money: she was watching
with eagle eye the development of the
United States fleets on the lakes and
feeling about as to what was neces
sary to protect Canada from the me
naclng danger from tbat source.
It was stated, which waa not true
that  she  had  made  a  beginning  ln
instituting  a naval   cadet, service.
I    That waa all that Canada had to say
at the conference et lilQ7.,excetit tbst
of tho colonies, Canada aald: "Wt
will not pledge ourselves. . We do not
propose to be led away from tbe exercise of our proper autonomy and
tbe responsibilities at home; we do
not intend to throw ourselves into
the maelstrom ot European conflict.'
Resolution of  1909.
Tben came the resolution of 1909
which aB it passed the Canadian par
llament affirmed certain principles
It affirmed the duty of Canada tp aa
sume some more of the duties of national defenoe; it affirmed tbat regu
lar and periodical contributions were
not the most satisfactory solution oi
the defence problem; it declared that
in the speedy organization of a Cana
diau service in co-operation with, and
in close relation to the imperial navy
along lines suggested by the admiralty
was the best method of securing the
fiaval supremacy "of Great Britain; lt
declared that whenever need arises
Canada would make any sacrifice to
co-operate with the imperial author!
ties in any movement to maintain the
Integrity and honor of tbe empire.
Mr. Foster,pointed out that this was
not the form ln which the original
resolution dime before parliament;
not the fornvof the amendment which
Sir Wilfrid, then leader of the gov
ernment, moved. That was a resolu
tlon which was the result of conces
slons on both sides for the laudable,
purpose without giving away another
principle ot protection.
Canada Refused Advice.
I   Then came the imperial conference
possible objections to this they declared that tbe next most effective
thing to do was to bulld naval ships
but they Insisted as an absolute con
dition for one single indefensible con
trol in the time of war and they aug
gested then the building of tour units
on the Pacific headed by four great
machines.
Australia and New Zealand concurr
ed, Britain was the main party to a
third, but Canada said we cannot do
any such tiling; we will not do any
such thing.
"To my mind," said Mr. Foster, "thM
opportunity was lost of doing the big
gest, the'grandest, the most effective
thing up lo that "period���or maybe
for many years���could have been done
for tbe aid of the British supremacy
by sea and for tbe comfort and, security of the hundreds of millions of people within the empire."
"A Canadian Navy."
Canada, said Mr. Foster, refused to
Join the admiralty's plan; refused
eveu to take the suggestions as tc
building a unit; Instead, went to the
a'dmiralty and asked what could bi
done with four hundred thousand a
year; came back and instituted the
policy of building four cruisers and
six torpedo boats and dividing that up
between the two oceans. The naval
service bill embodied the result in
legislation in 1909 and the house was
acquainted with what had been done
under lt.

It ts asserted tbat the Austrian' and
German ambassadors at the meeting
today   were   most  cordial,   although
reserved.   When the question of the
Dardanelles was raised, it is reported.
Count Banckendorf expressed th* theatre of Russia that the straits be declared open only to the Russian fleet':

Concerning the IslaiTds along tfi��r

No Pressure Was Used by Home Government for Gift of Warships
Offered.
London, Dec. 18.���Directly the offer
of the Malay States to the Imperial
Navy was received in London reports
became current that the gift was undoubtedly due to pressure from the
Home Government, the official despatch aent to tbe Colonial Office by
Sir Arthur Young, High Commissioner
of the Malay States, is tberefore particularly opportune.
In the words of the Sultan of Perak,
the offer was made as a demonstration of the loyalty and gratitude for
the protection given by Great Britain
to the Malay States and the prosperity the States had attained owing to
the protection. The gift Is to supple
ment the official naval program, and
the Admiralty'ia to decide whether
the vessel shall be a first-class battleship or a cruiser.
Sir Arthur repudiates the suggestion that the Home Government haa
practically brought pressure to bear
on the States ' to contribute to the
navy. The offer, he emphasizes, was
entirely the result of an offer by tbe
ruler of the States, who stated to Mr.
E. L. Brockman, Chief Secretary, that,
the Malay States were not perhaps assisting to an extent commensurate
with their prosperity to th* defence of
the Empire. ���,

Report cf   8lr   George   Murray VVHI {TURKS   FORCED   10
Make Recommendations In Report to Parliament.
RETIRE IN DISORDER
Ottawa, Dec. 18.���The report of Sir
George Murray, following bis Investigation ot tha Dominion Civil Service
ls believed to be in the bands of tbe
Government and will probably be
brought down ln the House Immediately before or after tbe Christmas
adjournment. Rumor has lt that the
report will be (ound to contain recommendations Involving several Important reforms ln the composition
and administration of the service.
Sir George Murray came to Canada
expressly at the request of the government to make this Investigation, ar-
rlvlng bere In September and returning to England early in the present
month. Officials ot the service testify
that bis inquiry was a most tborougb
and searching one. It ls expected
that among his recommendations will
be one for relieving ministers .of much
of the detail work which the present
system requires of them.
It le understood that he was not
favorably Impressed with the Treasury Hoard as one of the wheels of government and there ls some expectation that the abolition of tbe board
will be recommended. The board as
constituted acts as a committee of tbe
Privy Councll ln matters relating to
finance, revenue, expenditure and publlc accounts referred to It by the council. It constitutes a sort of court oi
Appeal from the rulings of tbe Auditor- General.
It ls also Intimated that an extension of the Civil Service Act of 1908
���o as to Include the outatde service
will be dealt with in the report with,
perhaps, the suggestion that a change
he made as rapidly as possible.
Sir George Murray ls known to have
gone Into the question of a superannuation system for the service. The
old system was abolished by the Liberal Government soon after it was returned to rower, and there has been
strong feeling In favor of Its restore
tion. This may be recommended In
the report.
Dealing with the somewhat vexed
question of promotions, lt Is believed
that the report will favor a change bv
which promotions will be dealt with
Detail! of Battle With   Greek*   Outside Dardanelles, Given Out at
Athens.
Athens, Dec. 18.���The Ministry of
Marine has made publlc the details of
the naval battle fought yesterday outside the Dardanelles, as reported by
tbe commander of the Greek destroyer
squadron.
"Yesterday morning," says the report, "our fleet, consisting qf the battleships Spetasal, l'sara and Pydra
and the armored cruisers Georgelo
Averof and four scouts, cruised toward the northern side of the entrance of the Dardanelles. Acting un-
,der orders from the commander-ln-
fchief I Joined the tleet with nine destroyers, e
"The Turkish warships formed in
line of battle under the guns of the
fort at Setlil-Bahr and opened flre. We
replied at a distance ot about five and
a half miles, advancing to within threi
miles. Both the forts and the war-
.ships engaged In the firing, while the
lleht flotilla of the enemy stationed
under the forts also began operations.
"After an hour's engagement the
enemy retired in disorder, considerable damage being done, according to
private Information."

Postmaster-General   Predicts Cheaper
Tariff���Ausralia  Wants  State-
Owned   Llneo.
London, Dec. 18.���In reply to a
question In the it ouse yesterday Postmaster-General Samuel predicted a
further reduction In the transatlantic
cable rates. Mr. Archer Shee's question was whether the government had
responded to the invitation of the Australian Government to hold a sub
fldlary Imperial conference to discuss the possibility of a state-owned
Atlantic cable.
Mr. Samuel said ths government ls
suspending its reply until proposed
further reductions In the cable rates
between this country and North America and Australia and New Zealand,
which have recently been unaer consideration, have been brought Into effect.
The resolution passed by the Imperial Conference contemulated the summoning of a subsidiary conference, but
tn the event of tbe considerable reductions ln the Atlantic cable rates now
being effected In the near future, ln
addition to the reductions early ln the
year, the Australian Government will
be informed of the result of these ne-1
gotiatlons. Pending their considera-'
tlon of that Information the question
of a subsidiary conference remains in
abeyance. To a further question Mr.
Samuel said:
"I hope further reductions   will b?
announced by Jan. 1."

OTTAWA'S RECOGNITION.
Very few people have the temerity
to delve into government blue books,
but, for all their prosy reputation,
they frequently contain matter of Interest to us as a community or Individually. A bulky tome'ls the report
of the minister of public works just
to hand, but therein we find that the
deputy minister in dealing with harbour and river works has the following to say concerning our own port:
"The city council of New Westmin
*ter, on the Kraser river, with praiseworthy initiative, have arranged to
-expend the sum of $500,000 in the
construction of wharves along the
water front, and the extending of
Front street to afford room for trackage, etc. New Westminster, In providing for ocean going terminals has an
immense'advantage over the cities of
Vancouver and Victoria, inasmuch as
almost the entire waterfront is public
ly owned; and, moreover, the water
Iieing fresh, a much cheaper method
of wharf construction can be used
than in either of the other harbors."
Government officials are not If1.
the habit of indulging in that specie3
of mania which is set down as Inordinate "boosting." They talk from
facts and figures supplied by experts
Therefore the Item above quoted may
be looked upon as absolutely true, as
a recognition of Westminster's advantages and enterprise, and, incidentally
as praise indeed.
The work performed on the river it-
���eelf is amply described in this reporl
on the last fiscal year, and, from a
multiplicity of Interesting items, we
may state here that the dredge Pruh
ling removed 66!),103 cubic yards ol
material during that time, while the
���nagbOatJ-a craft which has loomed
���very much in the public eye of late
removed 306 snags between ChilUwaci;
and the mouth of the river.
and in some instances coming down
to the end of September.
When the figures were reduced to a
common basis tho monthly import Into the United Kingdom increased from
$265,000,000 in 1911 to $286,000,000 ll.
1312.
The corresponding amounts for ita
two leading competitors were $126,-
000,000, and $148,000,000 in the case or
the United States, and $186,000,000
and $203,000,000 in the case of Germany.
As regards exports the United Kingdom Increased from $179,000,000
monthly to $192,000,000; the United
States from $159,00,000 to $177,000,000
and Germany from $153,000,000 to
$166,000,000.
During this year the United King
dom has shown no diminution in Its
lending power. No doubt its chief
competitors have made greater relative increases in exports, but this was
tbe Inevitable result of their industrial
development
The surprising fact is rather that
Britain with Its much smaller population and limited natural resources
should still retain its absolute lead.
Relatively to population the volume
of Us trade per inhabitant is far more
lhan that cf either the United States
or Germany.
From an interesting note on vital
statistics, appearing in the current
number of the Popular Science Monthly, It appears that for the year 1910
nEgland had a lower death rate per
thousand than Prussia, France or
Italy,   the   figures  standing   England
13.5, Prussia 16.0, France 17.9, Italy
19.6.
In the United States vital statistics-
are lacking, but a paper published in
1909 by the census office, represent
ing a population of about 49,000,000 in
eighteen states and 54 cities in non-
registered states showed a death rati,'
per 1000 of 15.0.
Ontario in 1909 had a deatli rate of
14.6, so that England, densely populated as it is, yielded a more favorable return.
Australia and New Zealand report
for 1910 a death rate of only 10.4, an
extraordinary low figure. The Popular Science Monthly, however, points
out that the low figures in England
and Australasia are explainable by the
age constitution of the population and
thinks that probably a death rate of
15.0���an average age for those surviving infancy of from 75 to 80���is as
low as will ever be permanently maintained by by any nation.
Be that as it may, the present position of England certainly does not reveal any deterioration in the physical
perdition cf its people.���Toronto

The placing of the Fenian Rala
bounty law on the statute book was
welcomed by many veterans, to whom
Its working has so far brought only
disappointment. Old men who sorely
need the money watch the mails for
the cheque that comes not, and the
sadness settles down the heavier on
their spirits when they see that
diemies are arriving for more fortunate applicants.

can anybody be blamed?
To defend their country in 18C6 and
1870 volunteers donned their uniform1
and awaited orders, which seme of
'hem recived, to go to the front.
Those volunteers were not at that
time aged men. but were fine, lusty,
manful young fellows, the peers of
the Canadians who are enjoying tlieir
prime and giving orders to governments today.
The men who held themselves In
readiness to march or take train or
boat for the front at the time of the
raids were aa willing to risk their
lives as those who actually did risk
their lives. If the law as It stands
does not provide for the cases of all
who responded to the call nnd held
themselvps under orders In 1866 and
1S70. we hope it will be amended sc
as to be made thus comprehensive.

In dealing with old men, many of

DEFIED THE  KAISER.
A Pilot Who Knew His Business and
Had Lots of  Nerve.
In a flt of Impatience because the
speed of.hie yacht was slowed down od
entering a certain harbor, the German
emperor on one occasion tried to assert
bis authority aud rang tbe bell for
"Full speed ahead." To his great surprise, the pilot, nn old Norwegian
uamed Nordliuns, who knew the dangerous diameter of the channel, placed himself ln the way and, lennl^
over the wbeel. called down the tube
to the engine room. "Half speed ahead
���neve*! inlnd the belK"
"What! Vou dure to countermand
my orders?" cried the Impetuous monarch, acaln ringing the hell.
"Disregard the bell," calmly repeated Nortlhnns through the tube.
For a moment the kaiser glared at
the Intrepid pilot nnd then, drawing
himself np to his full height, snld majestically. "Go below, sir, and report
youreplj under arrest"
"Leave the bridge!" thundered the
Norwepjjsn grimly, as he grasped tlie
Wheel pore drmly. "This ship Is In
my charge, (tnd I'll have no Interference Vith iny orders from emperor or
sen in (Ira!"
The'offldeta on deck hurried silently
aft wishing luck to the sturdy old
sea dog. who, knowing thst he had
the law ns well as common sense on
his side, stood at his post unshaken by
threats, unheeding commands, nnd
steered the Uobenzollern safely Into
port
The next day the emperor came to
bis sehses snd decorated the pilot���tht
king H the wheel-wlth one grade of
the Order of the Blnck Engle and also
appointed him hls life pilot ln Norwegian Waters.-Pearson's Weekly.

LOSING NO UK IN
GETTING ICE READY
Busy Days for Arena Company���Royal
Hockey Team Needs to Oet
Move on.
"If we can find room for one hundred men at the uark and the refrigerating building, they will be placed al
woik at once," stated Charlie Welsh,
president of the Arena Company yesterday afternoon.
Following the favorable vote by the
people on the rink plebiscite the company Is straining every endeavor to
get tbc pipes all laid, the machinery
in operation and the ice congealed by
Dec. 28, which will give the local team
two days to get accustomed to the
playing space.
���One thing 1 want to impress upon
a certain section of the people of the
city," continued the former lacrosse
magnate," is the fact tbat this is to
he a Westminster company pure aud
simple.
"The capital will be made up by
the residents of the city and, although Frank Patrick Is one of the
directors, what block of stock he will
have ln the company, if any, wlll be
mighty small.
"The officers elected a few weeks
ago were only provisional, but 1 expect there will be little change at
the next meeting of the company."
At the present time all the Westminster hockey players with the exception of Hugh Lehman, are living in
the city, going over to Vancouver
every day for practice. Lehman wai
married just before he made the trip
to the coast and until the ice is formed at the Park he wtll not bring hls
spouse over to the Royal City.
The question of the players getting
in condition Is beginning to be felt
hy the company and a change In train
lug rules will likely be carried oul
within the next few days.
At tbe present time the Vancouver
and Victoria teams nre travelling at a
mid-season clip, and, unless thc Pat
��>rson cup holders get a move on dur-
lnir the next few weeks they will hi
left so far behind In the race that I!
will be practically Impossible to catch
up.
Tom Donald, who wss In charge of
the Salmon Uellles last year, has been
mentioned as trainer for the bunch
and as he was seen on the street yesterday aftemouii, Uierp 4n)<cH possibly
be something to the rumor.
Rounds refereelng. The boys wlll
meet again sometimo within a montli
from dati on the other side of the
line, forfeits of $50 being put up by
each.
In' a four round tussle another Westminster boy, Shorty Parsons, was defeated by Ed. Shea of Blaine. There
was a big turnout.

Westminster   Should   Put   up   Good
Game Against Star Rugby Side
���Queen's   Park.
London, Dec. 18.���Hon. Winston
Churchill, ln an address at Stirling
last night, decalred tbat the naval reservists were being trained as widely
as possible, and the admiralty would
be prepared to use them lf necessary
in tbe front of tbo battle.
The country was now passing
through a picturesque period, continued the first lord of the admiralty,
and the prosperity of Britain was
great. The overseas dominions were
drawing closer to the mother country
in Imperial union, and a meeting of
ambassadors of all the great nations
would be held to narrow the scope of
war, and thus preserve the prosperity
of the nations.
"Our navy," continued Mr. Church-.
ill, "Is playing a vital part In preserv-]
jdng peace, and doing more, In fact,
I-than iny o'ther agency to bind the
overseas dominions together. Thus
we are being led not merely to na
tional i, safety, but also to Imperial
union."

"Hie celebrated Moose in Burnt Cork

show will goto provide Christmas dinners for the poor and needy and lu
this laudable motive the Moose are
worthy of generous support.

BURNABY ANXIOUS
TO ENTER LEAGUE
Application Will Probably Be Granted
at Next Moetlng���Flrat  Match
Soon.
The hockey enthusiasts ln Burnaby
are evidently determined to be included ln the amateur league ot this
���city.
Yesterday the secretary of the
league received an application from
the Burnaby team, which stated that
there was no dearth of players In thai
municipality and that it they could
he included In the league they would
promise a merry race for tbe other
five teams.
A meeting of the league will he
called within the'next few daya when
the recent application wlll he handled
and probably acepted.
Now that the rink queatlon ts settled the amateurs are showing grest
activity, 'scouring new regalia or tyav-

Ths first match of the league will
probably be,played In the tlrst week

BOTH WESTMINSTER
TEAMS SCORE WINS
Queen's Park will be the scene of
an Interesting rugby battle Saturday
afternoon when the Crusaders, the
leading team of the lower mainland,
will meet the Royals in a Miller cup
game.
This will bo the second time this
season that the team now tied for first
place wilh the Firemen, have visited
New Westminster, the first time being
Sept. 21, when tbe locals, on account
of the visit of the Duke of Connaught,
fielded a weak team.
Times have changed since then as
witness tho performance against the
Firemen last Saturday, and, although
victory is conceded the Vancouver
team, tbe Westminsters are mounting
the steep hill which leads to success
and should put up a game worthy of
tho city they represent.
The selection committee will meet
this afternoon and chose a fifteen
from   the  following  players:
Smith. Hoult, Marcon. Lloyd. Blgga
Loat, Walker, Ford, Stacey, Savage
Decker, Dart, Saunders, Pelly, Rog
ers, Railton, Turney, Morton, Cham
berlain. Cairns and Andrew.
Players are requested to turn tut
for practice In the afternoon at
Queen's Park.
��� 8PORT COMMENT. ���
Ottawa, Dec. 1'.���After a ten-da)
boycott, the newspapers of Ottawa
lifted tbe lid on the local. N. H. A
club and professional hockey onct
again has access to the press. Tht
trouble, It Is alleged, aro3e after the
hockey club's refusal to indulge ln the
customary amount ot advertising demanded by money-making organiza
tleffis In the'epdrtihg ltae, and th��-
clamps were screwed down tight on
all data pertaining to the N. H. A. li
Is known the Ottawa Hockey Club has
been winding up eacli season with a
surplus ranging from five to eight
thousand dollars and as the newspa
pere were directly respcnsible for 51
per cent, of It, the advertising depart
ments considered the club to be no
better than the ordinary retail merchant who rcclved line for line for
his advertising. The situation be
came so acute, tbe hockey people capitulated yesterday and agreed to
place a stipulated sum with the papers, and receive the customary
"pufr in return. .Kb it is. the boycott has Injured the N. H. A. outlook
locally to a great ehAent, the publle
now looking forward to the opening ot
tbe Interprovinclal League oa Dec.

met him recently looking very downcast
"Whet's wrongr queried Mr. Higgins.
"Oh, everything!" groaned Mr. Biggins. "Tou remember my scheme for
keeping off burglars? Well, tbe secret
of It was to leave a gas jet turned on.
so tbst any bnrglar wbo entered would
be asphyxiated by the fumes."
"Didn't It work, then?"
"Ob. yes. It worked well enongh-too
well. Tbe burglar came In with a
lighted match, and we haven't been
able to Bnd blm or the bonse since."

Interfere with hla narrative and began to mumble, every listener with
his hand to hla ear.
"It's only ns old duffers tbat Un realize that aa lata aa 1855 tha slave

"Never mind the pinna part of tb*

"Waal, we heeded for tbe Kongo
country, Hint's nlgh on to tbe" equator,
snd the suu stood right over our beads,
pourln' down beat like tbe flery fur-

There wns a perceptible change at
this point in the appearance of the
nudlence. They pushed hnek from the
flre. and one man unbuttoned bis coat.
"One night," tbe speaker continued,
"we wns lylD' at anchor in tbe Kongo
river. The onptaln and nioet o' the
crew and tbe owners bad gone ashore
to mnke a corral of blacks to bring

"The moon wns full and tbe night

There wns evident satisfaction on
the pnrt of the audience at this part of
the narrative, nnd tbe speaker was Interrupted by such remarks as "Wish I
was there now," "That's tbe climate
for me," and "I feel like tnkln' off my
coat" When quiet wns restored tbe
narrative wns continued.
"Purty soon I saw a black spot on
tbe water and Hushes In tbe moonlight I knew the black spot was n
ennoe and the dishes were oars lifted
out o' the wnter. Some one wns row-
In' and  w*i* heMIn' for the   Anpei ��'

"I was young snd ambitions to do

Baden-Powell te Wsd.
An engagement recently announced
In London is attracting attention in
many lands. It is ,that of Lieutonant-
General Sir Robert Baden-Powell,
head of the Boy Scoate. The hero of
Mafeklng is nearly fiHy-eix and his
fiancee, Miss Olive Soames, about
twenty-two. Oeneral Baden-Powell, in
talking about, his romance, said:
Vyfie affair is not so new as persons
imagine. As a matter of fact, Misa
floames was traveling in the West Indies when I wont there in January."
Famous British Sdentist Says Nature's Selection Is Best.
Eugenists wi.-i would make the selection of wives and husban is a municipal undertaking were laughed at by
Sir James Crichton Browne recently
in his presidential address to the
8anitary Inspectors' Association at
Sheffield.
"I am a believer in the love match.''
lie declared, "net only from the romantic, but from the eugenic point
of view.
"Much nK.re precise information
regarding the transmission of character is necessary before we can venture to exercise any extensive control
over human mating, but even now
something might be done by medical
men to found moral sentiments in the
community and to ensure that in connection with marriage tlie welfare of
the next and future generations shou.d
in' borne in mipd. Perhaps the snme
object might be achieved by tho removal ol the powerful conventional
restraints whicii limit Uie r-nge of
choice.
'In a very large proportion of marriages love plays no part, or only a
very subordinate one. Hank, social
influence and what, Carlyle called the
'cash nexus' are dominant factors in
marriage to-day.
"The marri-fes made under them
nro not, it seeuis to me, those wliich
ore most liaely to produce favorable
results in the next generation. I feel
that I am on flrm eugenio ground in
recommending a return to nature in
relation to marriage, and a due allow-
ance for tliose natural forces that are
perhaps more far sighted in the future
of race improvement than we are with
our best scientific spectacles.
"I am not defending fool if h hasty
marriages, of which we have a great
deal too many. The abolition of Gretna Gr��en was a losi to the novelist,
but a gain to the country.
"Love at first sight of the right
kind is a physiological epoch corresponding with thi installation of new
circuits in the brain. It is like tlie
quality of mercy, twice blessed. It
blesses him who experienced it, and
it is charged with deferred blessings
for those who are to come alter him."
Among other striking sentences in
the address were the following:
"I cannot accept the cherubic theory of an American eugei.ist that all
"babies are bum good." Unhappily
hosts of balnea are born radically had,
but there are few bad babies wlio are
incapable of being made better than
they were born."
"Thu fhoruugh-goinB eugeiiist, taking a survey of Uie large tiiwns. would
feel obltjea to consign to the lethal
chamber at onoe several millions ol
men, women and children.
"The smitorium mny lie regarded

disposed of.
"Fresh air and daylight, to say nnth-

What will I give the
wife for Christmas ?
This is a question in every man's mind at this season.
The same question is asked every year. The idea of
Christmas is to give pleasure to others. In what way
are you going to give pleasure to your wife this year?
She has always wanted a "Home of Her Own." The cost of
a house has kept her in a rented house for years. A
rented house never has that "homey" look and feeling
that "Your Own Home" has. How much pleasure would it
carry if you were to give her "A Home of Her Own" this
Christmas ? It is within your reach too, as we are building homes for people who are tired paying rent and letting them pay for them $25 Monthly. Did I hear you say,
"Does that include interest" ?   Yes, that's what I meant.
$25 Monthly is the Full Payment
for a nice, cosy and comfortable home with modern bath
and toilet, large clothes closets and a pantry 8 ft. square
off the kitchen. Just what she has always wanted is
within your reach. Let us show you one just like it. We
know you will be satisfied as all others have been. Everyone says it could not be better if they built it themselves.
There are only a few of them left, so you must not delay
if you want to own one. Come to the office tonight and
see a copy of the plans of our houses.
