PRICE FIVE CENTS
GREECE REEUSES TO
SIGN PEACE PROTOCOL
Turkish and Bulgarian Delegates Conclude Matters, Latter
Representing 'Servia and Montenegro���Abstention May
Mean Serious Split Among Allies���Attitude of Athens
Unexplained-Turkey to Enter Balkan Cuitoms League.
HALE MILLION EOR
EIRST YEAR'S WORK
London, Dec. 3.���The protocol arranging an armistice was signed late
this evening by the Turkish and Bulgarian delegates, the latter representing also Servia and Montenegro.
Prior to this there had been a long
sitting of the Turkish council of ministers to consider fresh proposals
submitted by the allies.
Apparently the Greek delegate did
not sign the protocol. At present
nothing Is known definitely on this
point or of the terms of the armistice
as revised today.
The refusal of Greece to sign the
armistice ls susceptible of different
Interpretations.
London la Likely.
In the flrst place as a tacit armistice has been ln existence more than
a week lt Is not Impossible that the
negotiations may have served to
bring ahout an agreement on the
general principles of the peace terms,
such as would promise the speedy arrangement of a peace treaty when the
conference meets as is now expected
ln London. In this case the fact that
GWece Is standing out from the peaco
protocol would not be of great importance.
In the second place the Greek abstention may mean a serious split
among the allies, arising from jealousies concerning the possession of
��� Saloniki and the lnslstance of the
Greeks on the capitulation of Adrlanople, Scutari and Janina.
J Turkey Tested Greece.
Other factors that may influence
the situation are to be found tn   the
fact that Turkey recently sought to
conclude a separate treaty of peac<j
with Greece, that Bulgaria apparently
is not unwilling to euter into an alliance with Turkey, and that the alliej
are desirous thut Turkey shall enter
the Balkan Customs League.
There is a rumor In Sofia that a
suggestion has been made to sub
stitute Roumania for Greece in the
Balkan League. It seems clear from
the report that Bulgaria will ignore
the Greek offer to laud an army tn
Gallipoli Peninsula and to send her
fleet to attack the Dardanelles, that
the relations between Greece and Bul
garia are greatly strained and these
signB of dissension among the allies
leave the situation full of dangerous
possibilities.
Can Continue War.
It is reported that France Is trying
to persuade Greece to adopt a lesj
unyielding attitude. It ls understood
that financial pressure and the exhaustion of their forces had much to
do with the willingness of Bulgaria
and Servla to conclude peace, and ln
this respect, Greece, wliich securea
her victories with less expense, is better able to continue hostilities.
Bulgarians Kill Greeks.
London, Dec. 4.���A Vienna despatch
to the Daily Telegraph that official
quarters there have received information that the dissensions between the
Greeks and Bulgarians have become
serious and that 250 Greeks were
killed when 3000 of their troops at
tempted forcibly to occupy the town
cf Serres. which was already occupied
by Bulgarians.
RAILWAY SILENT ON
TERMINAL QUESTION
English Bondholders Want Say in the
Matter���Developments In Ferry
Service Expected.
PROMINENT  TYPO   LEAVES
The remarkable silence of the officials of the Canadian Northern Hail-
way Company regarding the location
of their terminals on the False Creek
tide flats, Vancouver, ls a matter
which ls being followed closely by
residents of New Westminster.
It ls only a matter of two weeks ago
that everything appeared to bave!
beeu fixed up between the company
and the city of Vancouver. Sinew
then, however, no word has been received from the head officials and a
general belief ls prevalent that pressure is being brought to bear which
wtll result ln the changing c" Liu
whole plans of the railway as for ��s
terminals aro concerned. !
A few days ago a Vancouver morn-1
lug   paper   came   out   with the an- j
nouncement that the   English   bond-1
holders wbo had been Induced to buy j
Port Maun property on the strength j
tbat lt was to be the western terminal of tbe C. N. R., are kicking at the i
proposal to locate on the False Cree.-; '
flats, and the continued silence leatU
to the belief that the C. N. 11. are not
desirous  of  euterlng  Into  an  agreement with Vancouver in this regard.
Colonel A. D. Davidson, who has
been the spokesman for the C. N. R.
In all western terminal matters, is
now In the East, and Is not expected
to return for several weeks. ThiB
again lends color to the above.
A rumor Is now being circulated
that the C. N. R. Ib preparing plans
and will soon let the contract for the
construction of a line from Port Mann
to Steveston, near the mouth of the
Praser. Should this be correct, It ls
probable that the company is preparing to locate Its ferry terminals at
that point to connect with a port on
Vancouver Island, which wlll also
link up with Victoria.
Tbe oompany haa repeatedly given
out statements that a ferry service
would be located near the mouth of
the Fraser and developments are expected In thla regard within a very
short time.
For   Upper  Country  on  Tour���Plans
for Labor Celebration.
Mr. R. A. Stoney, of this city, who
Ib the International Typographical
Union organizer for British Columbia,
will probably leave for the upper
country within the next few days ln
the Interests of the I. T. U. Mr.
Stoney ls Just recovering from a
serious illness, but expects to feel flt
enough to visit the various small
towns of the Interior, where he will
pay special attention to the territory
covered by the Vernon local.
He expects to be away from the
city until Christmas time and after
the New Year will visit points on
Vancouver Island and Prince Rupert.
As the Royal City Is planning a mon
ster labor celebration for Labor Day.
1913, this trip will give Mr. Stoney a
good chance of informing union men
throughout the province upon the progress this city Is making. He will
urge the different locals to make preparations for being repiesented at the
time of the celebration. i
All Quiet In Surrey.
So far there Is not even the simmering of an agitation for a change
in the personnel of the Surrey municipal councll and up to the present It
does not seem likely there will be a
contested election.

8CHOOL TRUSTEES PECK
ANO THORNBER CONSIDERING
Interviewed     yesterday     Trustees
Peck and Thornber   of   the   school
board, whose terma expire ln January,
\\ stated that they had not definitely de-
* ' elded whether they would stand for
re-election.
The chief consideration with both
Is the time lt takes to attend to the
duties of trusteeahlp, but they expect
to be in a position to announce their
intentions during the latter part of
this month.
At the exfrlry of thla tarm Mr. J. W.
Peck wlll have served eight successive yeara on the board, during which
time the school system of the city has
advanced In keeping with the general
progress.
la Tearing Down Old Granville Street
Bridge���Pile Driving Prospects
Are Bright.
The Fraser River Pile Driving Com
pany has commenced on a big contract of tearing down (he old Granville street bridge in Vancouver. SU
thousand dollars ia mentioned aa tho
contract price, while the company will
retain all the material from the ofc
structure.
A pile driving outfit will leave Westminster thla morning ln tow of the
tug Firefly and will be taken around
the point to False creek. The wrecking work will consume about two
montha' time, and Includes the lowering of one steel span and a draw span
also on to scows, which will be taken
and stored at aome convenient point
near Vancouver.
The company ls now located ln
their new offices at room 610 Watt
minster Trust block. Two of their
outfits are at present working at the
Fraser Mills on the new cedar mill
being built by the Canadian Western
Lumber Company. The Pile Driving
Company haa a dredge' at work at
tbat point deepening the channel so
that booms can be floated at low
water.
According to Mr. Jones of the Pile
Driving Company, more work Is In
sight tban ever before in the history
of the city ahd he did not expect nny
lay-offs for hla men at all. The company Is at present figuring on large
contracts through the whele of the
lower mainland.
Is Expenditure Planned Should Steel
Corporation  Make  Satisfactory
Arrangements With City.
If the Clarlie & Lewis Steel Corporation can make a satisfactory
agreement with the city in securing
the necessary site for the establishment of a big plant they will be prepared to go ahead four months after
the papers are signed with the actual
construction work on the buildings of
a plant and expend the sum of at
least $500,000 within one year.
This much was given out by Mr.
Stuart Wade, who has been conducting the preliminary negotiations with
the steel concern.
Furthermore Mr. Wade stated that
the provisional arrangements of the
concern provide for an additional expenditure of $1,000,000 the following
year and increasing amounts year by
year after until the total sum of
$10,000,000 ts outlayed.
What considerations required from
the city by the corporation have only
been discussed tentatively so far and
nothing will be definitely decided
upon until the principals meet the
council some time during this month.
It is expected, however, that something along the line cf the lease jusi
given the Schaake Machine Works
will be suggested.
The Westminster branch of the
Lewis & Clarke Steel Corporation, as
it is planned to have it called if tbe
negotiations are carried through successfully, will be run In conjunctloi.
with tbeir plant now being established at Chambers Creek, near Tacoma
and also the Tacoma Railway and
Marine Terminal Company. The proposed expenditure of $500,000 the
first year here wlll be for the purpost
of erecting the buildings and supplying the necessary equipment for the
plant.
It is understood that Mr. Henry
Hewitt, Junior, a multi-millionaire ot
Tacoma, identified with the corporation, has under his control vast mineral and coal deposits on this coast
which will probably supply in part the
material necessary for the work of
the plant immediately after establishment.
At both New Westminster and
Tacoma it Is intended to erect a modern iron and steel manufacturing
plant with complete modern blast
furnaces, open hearth steel plant, rolling mill and kindred industries including a gas plant. The works when
in operation wiil have an actual completed working capacity of 100 tons
of finished product per day.
One of thc difficulties in the past
with large steel plants has been the:
obtaining cf the necessary fluxing j
material, but it is also understood
that the corporation holds a fifty year
contract which v 111 supply it with the
crude material.

case, brought forth a full attendance
ln the galleries. The amendment ran
thua:
"We beg to represent to Your Roya!
Highness that in the elections at
MacDonald and Richelieu, there were
practices calculated to terrorize and
corrupt the electorate which were
connived at by your ministers and
which deserve the censure of th.^
House."
Both leaders got rounds of applause
as they arose to vote, as did tin-
ministers and several of the new
members.
Mr. Morrison, the new member for
MacDonald, received a particularly
warm reception from the Conserva
tlves as he recorded his vote.

chief topic if discussion at the meeting of the executive cf the Progressive Association last evening. Several
practicable schemes were considered,
but outside of preparing plans for the

Norci. Burnaby, Dec. 3.���Although
little hos been shown outwardly the
fact remains that there is a deep
political plot being arranged in tha
northern section of Burnaby, which, it
successful, will revolutionize the
whole of the municipality.
Ever since the B. C. E. R. franchise*
matter was turned down by the Burnaby council a tew weeks ago, the
property .owners of North Burnaby
have been holding secret sessions and
have decided to come out flatfootedly
In favor of a redistribution of the

be the flrst move towards secession
from thc southern portion of Burnaby
and the launching of a new municipality.

Portable Shower Spray That Is Practical and Convenient
Almost every person can afford tbe
luxury of a shower huth, since lt la
possible to buy a portable one at auch
modest prices. A shower batb of tbe
most practical kind ls marked at a few
pennies less than $,">, and after demonstrating Its merits no one would go
without sucb a comfort who bad the
price to pay for lt The fittings were
substantial, arranged with) fixtures for
attaching to tbe wall, an extremely
strong rubber pipe and curtains of
heavy sail duck such as tents are
made ot
These would be a perfect protection
to walls or pnper.
At sucb a low price one expects only
the most flimsy outfit and to pay Vt
for something that would-soon get out
of order or prove Impracticable Is Just
like throwing money nway. Then for
tbose who feel even $"> Is beyond their
purse there Is a batb spray tbat Is not
at all a bad substitute for the shower
bath. Tbe prices ror rubber nnd rose

size. For rinsing tbe hnir theae sprays

Cream   Colored   Damsels  Who   Wear
Masks and Only Visit at Night.
The Arab ladies of Zanzibar are very
light in color, many of them in ten
being what might be termed cream
colored. Their features aro regular
and good and they have very d.-uk eyea
and silky hair. They, paint under
their fetching orbs and stain their
hands and nails a reddish color with
henna. These far-away damsels live
in groat seclusion in lar^'e white
houses, never going out in the daytime from one year's end to another.
A little cooking and sweetmeat mak
ing is their tnly recognized employment, though some few of thein can
do beautiful embroidery. To lie on
their beds and be fanned by their
slave girls is the usual occupation of
tbe richer women of Zanzibar. When
they choose to visit or, as is more often tho case, to perambulate the town,
they wait until darkness hus well s,et
in and after a gun has been fired,
warning all that it is the lost hour of
prayer, then they may go out. But
they go entirely enveloped in a Urge
mantle and their faces are completely
hidden by very ugly gilt masks, with
oblong slits for the eyes.
Many of them even wear these
masks in the privacy of their homes.
Their other garments are trousers and
a tunic reaching below the knees,
wliich is often embroidered and trimmed with gold braid. They wear numerous ornaments of gold and silver,
such as ear-rings, nose rings, bracelets, anklets and necklaces. Whenever these mystic women travel any
distance they ride through the narrow
streets on large white asses stained
a brick red, their slaves running hy
their sides, and at night their slaves
surround them, each carrying a lantern as big as a street lamp. They
nil return to their homes before 4 in
the morning, when another gun is Bred, signalizing the Mohammedan's
first hour of prayer.
He  Really Needed the  Money.
Tlie envoy of the Sultan of Morocco
had an unanswerable argument when
the French Government objected to
the income of $800,000 which he demanded for his master. The French
Minister of Finance pointed out thnt
such an allowance was impossible,
seeing that the President of the republic himself drew only $300,000 s
year. "Yes," replied the envoy, "but
then it is to be remember that President Fallieres has only one wife,
whereas my august master, the Sultan, has thirty." That envoy waa evi-
! dently a man of parts. He knew exactly where the shoe pinched snd
how to base revenue upon expenditure. And his computations were eminently fair. A more mercenary envoy
would have insisted upon a flat rate of
$300,000 a year per wife which would
have amounted to $9,000,000 a year
for the thirty ladies. But he was
willing to allow wholesale prices and
the usual reductions upon a quantity.
In fact, he brought the rate down to
about $26,000 a year per wife, nnd
those of us who have wives will know
that ihe estimate was a reasonable
and proper one.
Be Sunny.
Almost everybody will admit thnt a
sense of humor and a love of fun tide
their possessors over some very real
sorrows. Austerity has no particular
claim to be considered saintly, and
folly with its can snd hells once in
nwliili dors angelic work. Blessing!
on the children with their merry
laughter. Blessings on the old people
who have not forgotten how to lm
sunny. Take it all in all, this world
of ours is not so bad a place. Every
season brings its gifts of love from
heaven, the skies are oftener bluo
than gray, the birds sing in tho
branches, fathers and mothers l��end
over the cradle, and the joy of lift*
is deeper '.iun the woe.���Christian

A Cobweb With a Story.
A gigantic spider's web is painted
on the ceiling of one of the rooms in
Sans Souci, the renowned palaoe of
Frederick the Great. This apartment,
the King's breakfast room, adjoined
his bedchamber. Every morning when
his majesty entered the room he wns
accustomed to take a cup of chocolate but on one occasion just as he was
about to drink he thought of something he had forgotten and returned
to his bedroom. When he ana in entered the breakfast room he discovered that a great spider had dropped
from the ceiling into the cup and lie
ordered fresh chocolate to be prepared.
A few minutes later he was: startled
by a pistil shot. No sooner had the
cook received the order than he blew
out his brains���not became the king
had refused the chocolate but because
he had poisoned the cup and thought
himself discovered, lt was in remembrance of this narrow escape that his
majesty ordered the spder with its
web to he painted on the ceiling.

When the Eirth Was Top Shaped.
After people dropped the old-fashioned idea that the earth was as fist
as a pancake they did not immediately grasp the uluhe l r spherical idea
as it is applied to worlds, The people
of the time of Columbus 1 elieved that
the earth was a body sh.iped like a
top or cone, the sunare rising from
the north to the south. There are
several letters written by Columbus
and still in existence which go tn
I rove that such was his corception
of the shape of the earth. The top-
shaped idea of the eprtH pe-m-j to
iiuvo originated with one John Bleu-'
vis about 1479 aid to have immediately become very popular.
An Injenious Ruse.
Herodotus tells of an ingenious ruse
employed to carry an important message through the lines of the enemy.
Histiaeus. being anxious to give Aria,
tagoras orders to revolt, could think ol
no means to send the message to hi<
ally, as all the roads were carefully
guarded. Finally he hit upon a scheme
Calling his trustiest servant to him
he ordered that the man's hair h<
shavop off. He then pricked the de
sired message on the scalp ol the alav��
and, waiting until his hair waj growr
out, dispatched him upon the errand
The measenger passed safely through
the lines, and whan he reached Arista
goras his head was again shaved an<
the message read.

Heartless.
"Why am I gloomy P' demanded thi
tOidesirable suitor whom she hsi
heartlessly ignored. "Isn't it enoimt
to niul.e a nnn gloomy to be cut bj

"The idea!" exclaimed the heartiest

Original  Meaning ol  "Garble."
The word "garble" originally meant
"to select for a purpose." There u-ed
to be an officer called "the gurbler of
spices," and it was his duty to visit
tbe stores, examine the spices and
order those that did not come up to
Standard to be destroyed. In this way
the garbled goods were those which
had been sifted of all impurities. So
s "garbled" report is one that is sifted
down and bereft of some of its original contents. Nowadays anything
"garbled" is misleading and chopped
up so as to give a wrong impression.
Expert Dyers.
The Tyrians, it is claimed, were the
most expert dyers of ancient times.
Thj fabrics dyed with the famous
tyrian purple did not assume their
proper color until after two days' exposure to the light nnd air. During
thl�� time they passed through a
gradation cf shades of yellow, green,
blue, violet and red, which the dyers
understood how to arrest and fix at
any moment.

J1RE PROTECTION IS '
LUMBERMEN'S THEME
British     Columbia      Representatives
Take Part In Western Forestry
Convention In Seattle.
Seattle, Dec. 3.���The Washington
Hotel was thronged today with aoino
two hundred members of the timber
industry in the Northwestern States,
assembled In the semi-annual convention of the Western Forestry and
Conservation Association. British Columbii was represented by Chief Forester MacMillan and others of the For
est Branch.
The proceedings brought forth keen
discussion of the essential matter lu
the protection of forests. The spirit
of willingness to co-operate in the
most advanced policies was manifested by timbermen. railroad men and
Government officials who attended.
The attitude of one lumberman, who
said that his foreman was excused if
he fell down on his log output, but
that he was dismissed If he had a single flre, showed the growing esntimeni
in favor of flre protection.
Mr. D. Ray Cameron of the Dominion Forest Branch and Mr. R. D. Piet
tie of the C. P. R��� took part in ths
discussion on the matter of fires along
the right-of-way of railroads. Safeguarding lumbering operations and
slash dlBDosal were the other matters
discussed.
In the evening a banquet was tendered to the visiting delegates by the
Settle lumbermen, at which sneecbes
were made by Col. J. B. White, the
Grand Old Man of lumbering in the
United States; President Flewelling,
John R. Toole, of Montana, and Mr.
Paterson, of Vancouver, who emphasized the good feeling existing between the two nations, and expressed
the hope that the next meeting of the
association would be held in Vancouver. In the second dav's session Mr.
B. E. Benedict will address the meeting on "Patrol Efficiency."

MONTREAL PORT HAD
SUCCESSFUL SEASON
Both Imports and Exports Large, Although Only Few Tramps Called in.
i Montreal, Dec. 3.���With the sailing
of the steamer Brayhead thiB morning there came to a conclusion th?
most successful shipping season ever
known in the port of Montreal.
With still one week to be added,
shipments during the season are as
follows, according to the records kept
by the Montreal Board of Trade:
Wheat. 24.727.G71 buBhels; oats, 6,-
154.865 bushels: barley, 884,832 bushels; rye. 0,7.342 bushels; flour, 1,789,-
71S sacks; meal, 109,836 sacks; peas,
295.n(i!j sacks; cheese, 1,514,195 boxes;'
better. 70 boxes; apples, 167.509 bar-
tels; ha,v��� 498,105 bales.
The number of visits paid by ocean
vessels during the season was 406, the
number of shins that came to the port
was 125. Of this number only 20 wero
tramps, a considerable falling off from
last year.
The shortage of the tramps helped
materially to reduce exportat'ons and
Is explnined by the high rates of Insurance charged on the vessels and tSelr
cargoes trading ln the St. Lawrence
route.
Speaking of the season. Major. O. W.
Stephens, retiring president of the
Harbor Board, felt th��t It had been a
very successful as well as a profitable
one to the entire Dominion. Customs
collections were higher than ever,
which rroves that the port's trade is
advancing.
Imports were very large as were also the exports. Shipping men are eat
lsfled with the year.
London, Dec. 3.���The following terrible description of cholera conditions
in the Turkish capital has just been
received by mall from George A. Fen-
wick, special correspondent of the
London Daily Chronicle at Constant!;
nople:
1 "Today   I  went   to   some   of   the
mosques In Constantinople.   They are
still beyond description.     At St. Sophia, for instance, there are more than
two thousand stricken soldiers mostly
suffering from cholera.   They fill the I
sacred.building and ln the city yard I
one can see them groaning and dyin^.
A cordon of soldiers    on  guard sur-1
rounds the place.
"For the past week not a single doctor has visited this awi\il hell of suffering. A doctor passed through there
this morning counted 136 dead bodies
in the courtyards. Hard bread Is the
only food the poor wretches receive.
"Yesterday two municipa 1 doctors
were sent to see what they could do
but they quailed before the hideous
spectacle. Some of the stricken men
drag themselves to the railing in thu
vam hope that some one will give
them water, but the soldiers keep a
wide space clear beyond the railings.
The ground beyond ls painted green
with disinfectant. Those who mlghl
have pity and might be able to reiid-i
a little temporary comfort are held at
bay by fixed bayonets. No one ma;
enter; no one may leave.
"In one corner of the courtyard is
a grim sight. Stricken men look
down the narrow street where others
are sawing wood and hammering making coffins ln which the we,ary watch
ers will soon be carried away.
"At the mosque of Sultan Armed
the same conditions prevail. Th?
proudest and most sacred of the edifices of Islam bave been turned by tir.
god of war into the most Infernal dens
of horror which the Imagination can
conjure up. The black hole of Cal
cutta beside them sinks Into trivial insignificance.
"The local authorities confesb their
complete impotence and as one wanders through Stamboul he wonders
that Its twisting rank streets are nm
swept by an epidemic which would
clear It of the living. Onlv the cold
bright weather stands guard against
such a frightful visitation."
Station In World���Canada and
American  Influence.
Sydney, N. S. W., Dec. 3.���Arrangements are being completed for the
erection of the Port Dar.vin wireless
station which will be the highest power station in the world. When this ls
completed lt will be possible to communicate with Singapore, through
which messages will reach London via
Bangalore, Aden and Cairo. A high
power station will also be constructed at Pretoria in order that �����*i a.
rlca may be linked to the chain via
Aden. From the New Zealand station
it is intended to communcate with
Sydney, thus practically establishing

Americanized" the Sydney "Daily
Telegraph" asks "How long can a
community of eight million people resist the enormouB attractive forces of
a contiguous nation of nearly one hun
dred million. The recent overwhelming defeat of the Laurier government
on the reciprocity issue has been held
to demonstrate that Canada would nol
consent to absorption by her powerful
neighbor, that she will not consent
now and that she will always refuse."
It is announced that there are now
nearly fifty million dollars in Australian government notes In circulation.

MYSTERY     PARTIALLY    CLEARS.
Finding of Woman's Body Throws
Some Light on Cornwall Affair.
London, Dec. 3.���A solution ln part
came today of a mystery which ha3
attracted Interest for a week past by
the discovery of the body of Mrs. Nor
will, 30 years old. who disappeared
form a hotel at Newquay, where sho
was staying with her mother.
Another visitor "at the hotel, Mr.
Delay, a retired Singapore lawyer, who
was on friendly terms with Mrs. No
will, said he observed the woman kill
herself. Mr. Delay hahged himself
leaving a codicil to hi* wlll leaving to
Mrs. Nowlll $150,000. The law ls
clear on the point that lf a codicil is
not in order then -the legatee undei
the will inherits.
If the codicil Is in order, another
question arises: Did Mrs. Nowlll survive Mr. Delay? Here again t&e law
fs clear. If Mrs. Nowlll'* death occurred after Delay committed milcldo
then hee heirs or next of Wn In turn
wlll Inherit the fortune., If she predeceased Delay the legacy lapses.
At present there is atrpps presumptive evidence that Mr*. Nowlll'* death
oecurred on Nov. 23, while Mr. Delay's death did not occur until the following night. .

Nanaimo, B. C, Dec. 3.���A dastard
ly attempt to blow up the Trent river
bridge with dynamite bas been foiled
by tbe elements and the police department is searching for the person oi
persons who it is believed intended
destroying the bridge in order to prevent tbe hauling of coal to Union bay,
the shipping point for the Canadian
collerles.
Twenty-flve sticks of dynamite wers
placed under the bridge, which is 35
feet high and has a span of about 120
feet. The point where the dynamite
was placed is four miles from Union
bay.
Attached to the dynamite was a
long fuse which extended fifty yard3
distant into the woods, where it was
lighted. Being a frosty night, the dynamite, according to the police, must
have frozen, aad by the time th-;
lighted fuse reached the eap the dynamite only burned up ln place of exploding as it would have done under
ordinary conditions.
To the -fact that the night was frosty
therefore can be attributed the saving of the bridge. As lt is, one of the
upright* to the bridge was burnt
through by the burning of the dynamite.
The chief of the provincial police.
Constable Stephenson, believe* that
the malefactor or malefactors will b��
apprehended. All union miners deplore the attempt to commit such a
crime.   .,

KEEP THE   BALL  ROLLING.
This afternoon a meeting of particular importance to tho city and valley
as a whole Is to be held In the city
hall, for upon Its result there rests to
a very large extent the fate of the
New Westminster and Fraser Valley
Progressive Association.
This association of citizens should

smoke at all? If the tenant ls to be
permitted to say what disposition
shall be made of the part of the rent
money that Is spent ln taxes, why
should he not have the right to specify
the purposes to which the other pari
is put?
As regards the relative economy of
tenant and landlord in such cases, lt
is probable, the balance would lie with
the tenant, for, when it comes to criticizing the expenditure of another, a
man is sometimes more opposed to
waste than in his own outlays. Landlords would live frugally if their expenditure accounts had to go before a
committee of tenants to be examined.
They would suqander little money In
luxury, and less In vain display. They

Henry Vivian Describes What li
Being Dons In England,
Henry Vivian, chairman of the copartnership tenants' movement in
England and au ex-member oi Parliament from Birkenhead, recently described the growth o' the garden city
idea in England.
To illustrate tlie value of suburban
garden towns for the housing of work*
men of large cities and their families
Mr. Vivian gave some interesting statistics. He said that the average child
of seven years brought up in one of
these communities had been shown to
be three inches taller than thc average

possible for them to keep up repairs
and reduce rentals.
The only question at issue is tlw
right of a man to do what he chooses
with his own money, and with his own
property. This right is interfered with,
when some one else is permitted to
place a mortgage on that property.���

Last February there were brought

youth of this age averaged five inches
more in height and thirty pounds more
in weight than one of the same age
from the big cities. Jn some of the
crowded manufacturing towns of England, he said, the death rate was forty
for every thousand inhabitants, while
in garden cities the rate had been
reduced to between eight and nine a
thousand.
These statistics were gathered by a
committee of Parliament, of which Mr.
Vivian was a member. On the report
of this committee the hooping and
town planning act was passed in 190'.)
by Parliament. This act gave government support to tlie building of ideal
suburbs around the great centres ol

THE   TENANT'S   RIGHT.
Elect Vice-President.
Montreal. Dec. 3.���Mr. H. V. Meredith was elected vice-president of th?
Bank of Montreal at a subsequent
meeting of the bank directors this
morning following the election of three
new directors. Mr. H. V. Meredith
will thus fill the office held by Sir Edward Clouston at the time of the lal
tor's death.
In support of the proposal fo permit house renters to vote, on money
bylaws, and thus pledge the property
of others for money borrowed, ft is
argued that the rent pays the taxes,
and that, therefore, the tenant has a
right to a voice in their   disposition.
There can be no doubt that In a
great many cases a part of the money
collected in rent is set aside for the
payment of taxes, but it !b equally
true that the rest of It is devoted to
other uses, and if the tenant can ba
said to pay the taxes he can be said
to pay other accounts as well. Suppose the case of a man who own* a
score of houses, from which he derives his whole income. Of course
he pays his taxes with a part of his
rent. With the remainder he pays
hi* own living expenses. Perhaps lj'i

A  Queer Australian Well
A curious form of water hole is
found in places in western Australia,
dry by day but yielding an abundant
supply of water at night. The flow of
water is prec*vied by hissings and
soundings of rushing air. The phenomenon is discussed by Dr. Malcolm
Maclaren, who has located and examined one of these wells.
He found that the water supply occurred in a long, narrow trench, at
the bottom of which was a thin plate
ul gneiss, separated by a cavity from
the iiiiin rock mass beneath. Appar-
eniy tiie heat of the days causes tiiis
plate to expand in the form of a depression. Into whicii the water re-

PROPOSED  NEW  MUNICIPALITY
AT COQUITLAM.
To Editor, Westminster Dally News:
Sir���I aee that a proposal has beeu
made to form a separate municipality
of the land contiguous to the C. P. R.
terminals. Roughly it embraces the
flat, low-lying ground between the Pitt
and Coquitlam rivers, and the small
area of high ground known as Mary-
iiill, on the Kraaer river frontage. To
break up the original municipality into petty townships is, I think, a grav?
mistake, and a retrograde step, entire
ly out of harmony with the progre3
sive spirit of the times.
The original municipality, with it*
matchless diversity of surface, ls an
ideal one whereon to found a great
city, and fussy, hurried attempts to
bread it up as at present, should be
firmly resisted, lf the interests in the
proposed area are of such a special
character as to require special treat
ment the remedy lies in forming it into a special district, as provided for in
the existing municipal laws. If the
promoters of this absurd scheme are
bent on going to the Provincial Government let them do so, but the rate
payers should insist that the cost falls
on the promoters, and not on the general body of ratepayers.
The crudities of the proposal are sn
obvious that serious discussion ts j
needless. Only one item, that of the I
name, may be selected as a sample.
The proposed name for this pompous
proposal is "Port Coquitlam." To a
navigator that means a port on the
Coquitlam. But the port is not to be
on the Coquitlam river at all, but upon the Pitt river. Navigators' law and
common sense would dictate that the
port should be named after the rive.-
where lt is located.and thus the name
of the would-be city should be Por'
Pitt. There is Lake Coquitlam, River
Coquitlam, and latterly Mount Fo-
nuitlam, but few people seem to know-
that the original residential CoqultIa.tr
Is outside the limits of the present
municipality, and is located at the no
oer end of Burrard Inlet, within the
township of Port Moodv. where traces
nf the old settlement have been
found.
I am your, etc.,

There were tears in Fred Taylor's
voice the other day as he talked to
Ills friends just before boarding his
train for the Pacific Coast, where he
goes to play hockey. He was sorry to
leave Ottawa, sorry to leave the East,
and it was not the lure of the West or
the jingle of the Patricks' money-bags
that made him hie away, but the
clanking of the chains of slavery that
Eastern magnates have forged for tho
hockey players. It was a case of the
Coast and liberty, or the East and
slavery; and, as much as Freddie
loves the East he loves liberty more.
The case is almost as heart rending
as that of down-trodden women, as
depleted by that exquisite suffragette
now touring Canada.
There is a most significant >movement of population going on at Ottawa
these times. Hockey players are pouring out of the city, while politicians
are pouring in. Men, whose work is
play.are leaving town on almost every
train, while men, whose play Is working for their country, are pouring In
on every train. On the whole, is Ottawa a gainer or loser by the operation? He would be a wise man and a
brave man, too, who would strike the
balance.
ROYAL THEATRE A YEAR OLD.
Just one year ago the Royal theatre
first opened Its doors In this city under the management of Al. W. Gillis,
who has directed its destinies through
a most successful   year,    the    house
having become a most popular resort
j for amusement lovers and playing to
I capacity audiences at a large share of
the  performances.    In   making    this
house popular Mr. Gillis has been ably
j assisted    by    the   employees   of the
I house,   the   majority   of  whom   have
been   with  him   through' the    entire
year, and  who  have  been  uniformly
courteous and obliging to the patrons.
|    Among some of the besl acts that
.have been seen   at   the   Royal   are
Arnoldo and his troupe    of    trained
leopards; the Morton-Jewell troupe of
jugglers; King Pharaoh, the educated
horse; the Oliva trio, who are Italian
singers;  the   Royal    Midgets;    Dolly
Burton's dog circus and also Trevitt's
military dogs.
Manager Gillis states that owing to
the fact that the Royal circuit has
been enlarged, it will be possible in
the future to get even better acts
than in the past, and that the local
house will be kept up to the standard
of other houses on the circuit.
He adds that for the first anniversary program he has secured one of
the best programs, if not the beat,
that has ever played in this theatre.
Every act on the bill will be a distinct feature and will be known as
the Royal Road Show No. 1, and wil)
open here Thursday, December 5.

"COLLEEN BAWN."
Patrons of the moving picture
shows have something especially good
in store for them today and tomorrow.
Manager Kerr, of the Edison theatre,
announcing last night that he haa
secured the famous Kalem film, "Colleen Bawn," which will be shown at
each performance. When it is stated
that the film is in three reels, followers of the "movies" will readily understand tbat the film Is far above the
average.
Every  scene  in  the entire production was made in its proper setting in
Ireland and the scenic effects are well
worth seeing, to say nothing of   the
dramatic story so clearly depicted.
|    The   story   Is   laid   in the baronial
estates of the Cregans in 1794. and its
I protrayal is by one of the cleverest
I casts    in    the    picture world.    Gene
Gauntier, who plays the part of the
Colleen  Bawn, Is already  known    to
i those having a predilection for Kalem
i films.    The remainder of the cast Is
also up to this standard.    There is a
pretty love story, sufficient complications to hold the interest of the mos*
astute, and like all good pictures, all
differences are cleared up before the
close.

For instance: Suppose you deposit $1C0 in a bank

you get ? You receive three per cent, interest from
the bank for the use of that money for one year,
which means that your $150 has earned, you the

rich on this ?

for the use of the lot for one year. Then why leave
your money in the bank at 3 per cent. I have only to

IS WINNIPEG'S MAYOR
RICHARD D. WAUPH  HAS MANY
IRONS IN TH- FIRE.
RE-ENACTING HISTORY
Energetic Westerner Who Hae Been
Elected Vice-President ol the
Union of Canadian Municipalities
Was a Pioneer In the Good Roads
Movement and Has Worked For
Baths and .' laygrounds In His City.
Twenty-nine yeara ago, a Scotch
lad, fifteen years old, came to Winni
peg and got a job in a law office at
not much per week. T-day he ie
Richard Deans Waugh, mayor of the
' city, who recently was elected vice-
. president of the Union of Canadian
Municipalities. Few men with as mea-
I gre a chance have got ahead as fast
in Winnipeg as the mayor. H) has
made a large fortune in land and in
financial manoeuvring, and at the
same time li-s found time to identify
himself with the big movement*
which bave m.Je Winnipeg the buckle of the wheat belt.
Mr. Waugh'a fir^t venture as a muni-
pal politician was when he served
on the Cycle Paths Board. Strange,
bu' he lias never lost sight of the
Good Roads idea.    It was largely his

advocacy of the "Good Roads Bill"
which got that measure through the
Manitoba Legislature last session. In
1903 he was first elected to the Board
of Control. In tho following two years
he was re-elected controller. In 1911
he became mayor of the city. A feature of his work is that Mr. Waugh
has done much to extend sanitary
facilities in Winnipeg. He was the
pioneer worker for the public bath.;
and playgrounds in the city.
Personally, the mayor is of the very
likeable, popular, earnest type of eiti-
zer.  Though a very busy  man  he is
not at all of a fogey.    He belongs to
at  least  a dozen  athletic clubs;   Mr
Waugh   is   an   enthusiast  nt  curling.

Smoking  In Churches.
The vicar of Lancaster, Eng., whr
hns h 'en obliged to put up a notice
forbidding visitors to smok" in
church, may not know that smoking
in church is not only irreverent, but
a breach 0? the English law. Some
time ago an Essex farm laborer was
seea t ��� be smoking when he entered
the church -for watch-night service,
and smoke afterward was observed to
be issuing from his pew. H" received
ii smnrt fine in court next day. Had
th^ offender lived one or two centuries
r i he could have smoked with im-
Lunity in church. Wooden spittoons
filled with sawdust were placed about
the church for the smokers, and they
sometimes left their long clays, .ir
"church-wardens," in the care of the
vergtr until next Sunday came
around. It is toli of the incumbent
of a Warwickshire church that he
used to emoke regularly in the vestry
while tho congregation were singing
the l.ymn before the sermon. He
made a point of selecting a long
hymn to give himself time to get
through his pipe. "My people," he
���aid, "like long hymns, but I prefer a
lonw pipe."
Then His Smile Faded.
Ranis-/ Calles in his reminiscences
gays he was once traveling in a smoking compartment on an l-ish railwuy.
Lie only other persrtn in the compartment was a gentleman who was
snioking i pipe with evident satisfaction, but whose tobacco had a particularly disgusting smell. Not having
any tobocoo himself with 'which to
overcome this appalling smell, Mr.
Calles ofwrfed the window. But the
weather was very cold, and he was
obliged to shut it again almost at
one*'. It then . ocurred to him that
possibly good lumored remonstrance
might prevail and abate the nuisance, so he said, with a conciliatory
smile, "Pardon me, sir, but really
your tobacco would poison a toad."
Without moving a muscle of his face
the smoker took his pipe from his
mouth ajid replied:
"Evidently!"

Moving Picture Artists Ha/i Spent tht
Summer Reconstructing Scenes
Frcm Canadian History and Havs
Leased the Place With a View to
Returning Next Year���Story of Dol
lard   Is Their First Effort.
Down'on the St. Lawrence River-
at Lake St. Joseph���a staff of moving
picture actors and operators are engaged on a work whicii is of interest
to all Canadians, and particularly tc
students of Canadian history. They
are reconstructing for generations t��
come, scenes from the early days ol
the French in the new world. Thif
summer has been spent on the story ol
Uollard and his fight at the Long
Sault.
The south shore of Lake St. Louis,
which is an expansion of the St.
Lawrence river, two miles above the
Indian village of Caughnawaga, is in
a state of nature���a woodland with
open glades here and there, bordered
by haw-trees red with ripe Iruit, and
occasionally a butternut mul maple
converted into.natural arbors by the
tniililig vines of the wild grape, from
which the fruit hangs in purole clusters. A little bay sets in. The watei
is shallow, and on the sand bars
rushes benj before the current. The
bank is sandy, but a maple grove ol
second growth comes down a'most tn
the water. This is the natural stage
on which Dollard's heroic deeds are
being "acted ' for the benefit, not ol
spectators on the spot, but for thi
wonderful camera that catches the
views for the motion picture show.
Back a little distance are the cottage-like buildings erected for the use
of the permanent staff���for the company has leased the shore for a number of yenrs. and will use it summer
after summer as a stage on which
to reproduce dramatic scenes from our
early history. Theie modern habitations, of course, never appear in the
pictures.
Excluding these buildings of raw.
new lumber, the remainder of the
camp makes it easy for the visitor
to imagine that he is back in early
times, when at any moment a bloodthirsty Iroquois was likely to spring
from behind a tree with tomahawk ot
scalping knife in hand. Here is a
cluster of tepees, or lodges of bark
and skin, each bearing the outline ol
the totem of its occupants, but the
whole discolored hy smoke and dirt.
These are the lodges of Dollard's
Huron allies. A few yards distant,
but somewhat nearer tlie shore, are
lodges of rushes ingeniously woven,
the wliole capped by comical-shaped
roofs of birch-hark. These most pie-
turcrjue but equally uncomfortable
dweliinsrs housed the Algonquin warriors, who, be it slid to their credit,
stood more loyally by Dollard than
did the Htttotu, wiio went over to the
enemy.
In another part of the camp is'a
log building, constructed exactly a^
were the buildings of the first settlers.
The legs are ioined togi ther and the
crevices are filled witli moss and clay,
and clay is the mortar, that holds
together the rough stone of which
the chimney is built. No iron is used
in th:!. structure. The hinges on the
doors and windows are of wood, and
so too, are the latches.
Not far away is the altar, at which
Dullard and his companions received
the sacrament before setting out on
their expedition; end back in the
wood�� is the stockade around which
the fight raged and in which Dullard
and his companies were slain.
Such is the stage. For actors the
dramatic profession and the Indians
of the Cnughnawaga reservation, only
two miles distant, were drawn upon,
and whites and redmen, whe*i they
"actod" the famous fight were in every sense dressed as were the white
men and redmen who fought and died
at the Long Sault two and a hall
centuries ago.
When all this is depicted by motion
pictures the spectators will see the
famous fight as complete in every detail as it is possible to make it.
Buch pictures should certainly possess tho power to thrill, and possibly
they will do more. They should not
fail to stimulate an interest in history, and especially in the history of
those early days so filled with the
stories of heroism and self-sacrifice.
of those times Dollard and bis men
were worthy representatives.
It is not necessary here to recount
the thrilling story of Dollard's memorable (eat of heroism; but its essential facts may be briefly enumerated.
The drama may be said to open with
the scene In the church in Montreal,
In which Dollard and his French-Canadian associates received the sacrament before setting out on their quest
of a large band of Iroquois, known to
have wintered in the Ottawa Valley
in order that with the oncoming oi
spring they may strike New France
a fatal blow by capturing the western
outpost of Ville Marie, or Montreal,
then only eight years old.
Then follows the voyage in canoes
from Lrxhine up the western arm of
Lake St. Louis, through the Lake of
Two Mountains to ite head, where the
lake contract* and the great watercourse becomes the Ottawa river.
Here, at the foot of the Long Sault
they land, and near the landing place
they find the ruins of a rude stockade
used by the Algonquins a few seasons
before in a fight with tlie Iroquois,
the common enemy of Algonquins.
Hurons, and French. On the bank of
the river they pitch their tents, swing
their kettles and set about preparing
a meal. The Iroquois shoot the rapids
and build a camp nearby. Then follow the bloody scenes of the drama.
Again and again the Iroquois attack
Dollard's stocked?, but as often as they
attack they are driven back with
heavy losses. Reinforcements arrive,
and at last the Frenchmen are wiped
out.

that tbe housekeeper was au attractive

died without having borne blm cbll

fltrnt at the time of bis flrst marriage.
Whether the second Mrs. Ingersoll
was more wayward than the first bad
been at the time of the first marriage
ls a question. Perhaps if Ingersoll bad
remained twenty-two he would bave

It was. she seemed very restive to him.
He realized that sbe was young and
needed to be carefully bandied. But
With all his patience and gentleness

be fretful. This led to occasional up
braidings on her pnrt, wblcb were met
wltb efforts to soothe her on ber bus-
band's part
He came bome one evening from
business to find her goue. He was astonished, disappointed.
After the tlrst shock be began to con-
elder what course to pursue In tbe
premises. He bad little faith In severity, realizing that It would be more
likely to widen tbe breach than to beal
It On the otlier hand, lf he begged bis
wife to return to blm he would probably be obliged to continue to be a beggar. And yet there did not seem to be
auy middle course unless be should
leeve her to see ber error and return
to blm of her own accord. This last
course he determined upon, but resolved to take advantage of any current they might drift into whereby be
might facilitate thetr reunion. He waited a few days for her to return, or at
least communicate with blm, but she
did neither. Ue knew sbe was at her

"I'm going to turu tbat woman out

"Por heaven's sake don't Tou will
meet your brute of a husband, and
tliere wlll be a dreadful scene," said the
mother.
"You'll mnke a goose of yourself,"

It's wltb Edward."
"Well, I'll tell him just wbat I think

"You can do that here." said papa,
"and avoid an altercation witb tbe

"Wbat tbe dickens do you care wbo

brother, "since you don't wlsb to do lt

"Shut up. Jim. Tou talk like a fool."
retorted Mrs. Ingersoll
"It seems to me," said papa, "that
you are tbe Illogical one. My recommendation Ib for you to either let
Edward nlone or go back and assume
your posltlou as bead of bis bouse."
"My denr," Interposed Mrs. Martin
to her husband, "bow 'can yon expect
that such a brute wlll take her back?
He has doubtless treated her as be bas
In order to get ber out of tbe way to
make room for tbis vile woman."
At tbls Mrs. Ingersoll threw up ber
hands, gave a piercing shriek and fell
Into ber father's arms. Tbis finished
tbe family conclave for the evening.
Mrs. ingersoll wns put to bed and a
sedative administered. Sbe tossed
about feverishly till morning, wben
sbe went to sleep, and tbe household
walked about on tiptoe till 10 o'clock,
wben sbe awoke to a renewal of ber
misery. Tbere was another family
consultation, and sbe finally determined to go bome and flnd out tbe worst-
Tbls meant tbat she wished to know

young woman into ber husband's

Sbe sent a note to her husband stating that sbe would meet him at their

so far recovered ber equanimity as to
make an excuse for the meeting and
did not give away tbe fact that ln case
there was nothing In the way involving tbe housekeeper she was ready to
come down from ber high horse and be

Her first words were:

"Please do not apenk so of sn estimable woman," Interrupted Ingersoll.
"Is tbere anything bet", een you and

"Anything whatr
"Anything wrong."
"No; she Is my housekeeper."
Tbere was a short silence, at tb*
���nd of which Mrs. Ingersoll said:

"You certainly hav*,"

"That's quit* sufllrlent sweetheart

The Anglo-German-Belgian Boundary Commission having completed
its work in Africa, Major E. M. Jack,
th; British Commissioner, has returned to England.
"fthe frontier which has now been
delimited is that between the Uganda
Protectorate and, on the' west, the
Belgian colony of the Congo (lately
Congo Free State), nnd. on the south,
German East Africa. It lies, says
Reutcr, in the neighborhood of the
celebrated Mfumhiro volcanoes, whose
peaks were first seen hy Speke on his
journey thn. *gh Ruunda to Uganda.
Three of the eight volcanoes, one of
which a few years ago showed signs
of activity, are pi.rtly in British territory.
The country traversed and mapped
by the British Commission is for the
greater pnrt of the wildest and
roughest description, consisting of
massive muntains intersected by
steep narrow valleys, at the bottoms
of which are large swamps. Parts of
th�� country are covered with impenetrable forests, others with bamboo.
The whole region lies at a high altitude, varying frotn 6,000 feet to 8,000
feet above s"a level, while the volcanoes vary from 11,000 feet to 14,000
feet. The climate is, in consequence,
cool and healthy, but near the volcanoes subject tn violent winds and
thunderstorms. The slopes of most of
the volcanoes ar? thickly clothed witli
bamboo forest, and in these are found
vlephant, "'iffalo and lion.
While the commission was survey-
nig the Anglo-German frontier, however, it was not safe for porters and
soldiers to travel alone, and several
men were attacked and killed.
On one occasion a chieftainess, a
"witch-doctor" named Mumusa, collected a considerable following and
announced her intension of driving
Ihe Europeans out of the country. A
portion of the British escort was detached to co-operate with Capt. Reid,
of the King's African Rifles, in an attack on her position, but before the
two forces joined Cant. Reid had successfully surprised Mumusa, capturing her and dispersing her followers.
Aftrr that no further trouble was experienced.
By the delimitation of this portion
of the frontier the international
boundaries on the west snd south of
tha Uganda Protectorate are now
"omplete.
A  Scissor-Grinder's  Will.
Bome years ago a certain David Fen-
by,   who wae  w6rking   as   a scissor-
���erinder in  Sheffield  at $6 per week,
liaving saved a little money���thanks
to the assistance of an admirable wife
who shared her husband's thrifty habits���determined   to   launch   out   into
the   grocery   and   genera',   business.
They started with a little shop in a
back  street,  Fenby  fetching his groceries snd  smallware  from the market on a wheelbarrow, which he hired
ui '.!1 he dould afford to buy one.   Ultimately  he was able to purchase  a
donkey and cart, and alter two years
in his little shop was able -to take a
grocer's shop with an off-license, and
to  pay  $150 valuation.     ���
A few days ago Fenby died worth
no less than $100,000. A man of keen
business acumen and energy, he was
able after nine years' trading in his
grocer'a shop, to buy a shop and no
fewer than nine adjoining houses. At
the same time he carried on a business as furniture remover, his wife
looking after the shop. He was afterwards able to move to bigger premises
and became a wealthy man; but he
and his wife continued to live in a
very moderate style until his death.
Mr. Fenby has left bequests of $2,500
each to four charitable institutions
of Sheffield.
A  Very  Funny  Englishman.
A story is told concerning Beerbohm
Tree, who, after an evening at one of
the London clubs, called a hansom
from a nearby stand he frequently
patronised.
"Home," shouted Tree to the cabby, who was a new one about town.
"Beg pardon," said the msn.
"Home," repeated Tree in commanding tone, and the driver whipped up his horse. HS "drove his fare
about for halt an hour or so and
then returned again. Stopping his
horse and arouMng the sleepy actor,
be apologized and asked tb what number he should drive.
"Home," thundered Mr. Tree, this
time thoroughly indignant.
"And where might your home be?"
queried the cabby, shaking in his
boots.
"You idiot," replied Tree, "do you
think I'm going to tell you where my
beautiful, home is?"

U.  8.   President-Elect  Wears   Brown
Fedora With Cutaway Coat.
Hamilton, Bermuda, Dec. 3.���President-elect Wilson shocked British society here on Saturday afternoon. He
wore his famous brown fedora, with a
cutaway coat, to the "tea and tennis"
given by .the governor-general, Sir
George and Lady Bullock.
Everybody who knows anything
about Piccadilly ls aware that a "topper" Ib the only thing that goes correctly with a "mawnlng coat," and the
company at this tea and tennis knew
Piccadilly perfectly. Nobody said anything, but everybody looked his or her
horror. That is, they looked it for a
minute. Then, with a slight gasp, the
gathering recovered itself and politely
pretended not to know that anything
v^as the matter.
* The president-elect took his family,
his stenographer and ten newspaper
correspondents to_the "tea and tennis''
with him. It was the first public reception they have attended In Bermuda. A large party was on hand to
meet them. The whole affair was held
ln the Bullocks' garden.

Th* Kings Private Nam*.
If the King were to renounce the
throne snd resolve to become an
ordinary 'citizen he would be called
George Wettin. How does the name
Wettin come to be King George's surname? This is the answer:
Queen Victoria married Albert,
Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, of the
senior branch of the House ol Saxony.
The family name by which this house,
dating from the middle ol the tenth
century, came to be known afterwards was Wettin, and this was and
Is the surname of both branches���the
Ernestine aad K'.bertine���of the House
of Saxony. The name comes from
the oaetle of Wettin/near Magdeburg,
which claimed Wittekind as the founder of the race.
Fishing for Millions.
In the waters of the Zuyder Zee
British divers are fishing for millions
in gold bullion. The gross value of
the treasure is estimated at $8,670,000.
It is entombed in the wreck of the
British frigate Lutine, which foundered in a storm at the entrance of the
Zuyder Zee in October, 1799. For the
better part of a century a dispute
continued between the Governments
of tbe Netherlands and Great Britain
as to the rights of salvage. An sgree-
ment was ultimately come to, but in
the .meantime the sands covered the
wreck, and now many charges ot
dynamite will have to be employed
be.ore the divers can hone to gat at
the gold,
"Count Your Blessings"
Would you be willing to go back to the standards
of living that prevailed in 1812 ?
In spite of all the praise of "the good old days,"
would you be content to give up the many conveniences
we have gained in the past century ?
Former generations knew nothing of the luxuries
of modern travel with its observation cars, individual
lights in Pullman berths, phonograph recitals, rich appointments, home-like comforts, and special safety devices with which the modern railway system surrounds
its passengers.
The rural telephone now places the
farmer 4n instant communication with
the source of the latest market reports, and saves him many hours ot
precious time tn tbe event of sickness
or accident.
The introduction of the typewriter
nnd adding machine has lightened the
load and lengthened the day of the
business office.
It was Advertising that first proclaimed the usefulness of these devices, that created an immediate and
universal demand for them, that established   a world-wide   distribution
which made them readily accessible1
to us all.
McCormick Invented the reaper and
thereby made himself an everlasting
benefactor of the farmer. But it was
Advertising that carried the wonderful news with ito far-reaching signlfi-
cence to "the man with the hoe."
You know what house work used to
be. Realise wbat. it is now, sinoe the
advent of sanitary plumbing fixtures,
hot water heating, vacuum cleaners,
and electtic household appliances.
Advertising baa brought these things
into your bome. lt has eliminated
drudgery.
Advertising is service. Science, invention commerce, are all indebted to its aid. It has raised the
standard of living, elevated business ethics, and put us
within reach of more real comforts, more real blessings than we.ever enjoyed before.
Advlc* regarding your advertising problems I* available through any
recognized Canadian advertising agency, or th* Secretary of the Canadian Proas Association, Room 80S Lumsden Building, Toronto. Enquiry involves ne obligation en your part���so write, If Interested. 1   "

BRIXTON BURGLARY
BRINGS DOWN HOUSE
SL George's Amateur Dramatic Society
Win Fresh Laurels at Opera
House.
With a new propeller shipped and
repairs made following the tough
struggle in the gulf which took placf
a little over a week ago, the steamer
Burin, which is on the inter-city run
between New Westminster and Vic
toria, left the ways of the Westminster Marine Company yesterday morn
ing and started for Victoria later in
the day. The refitting of the propeller
was carried out with despatch by the
Schaake Machine Company.
The American tug Challenger arrived at Port Mann yesterday with
two scows of coal for the Canadian
Northern Railway. The coal came
from across the line.
The steam freighter Trader came
up river yesterday with a cargo of
coal and is unloading at the C. P. R.
wharf.
INCREASE    DEMURRAGE    RATES.
The clerk of the weather, evidently
.a .cr.ic.ket enthusiast, was kindly, witb
the result that a well dressed hous?
.greeted the St. George Amateur Dramatic Society's presentation of "The
dtalxton Burglary," "a three act farcical
comedy, at the opera house last nigh:
given as a benefit for the Westmin
ster Cricket Club.
Of the play itself, "The Brixton
Burglary" provides endless scope for
much laughter makiug and amusing
business. James Martin, the man
servant, and his master, Septimus
iPontifex, both, unknown to tbe other,
spend a night out during the absence
of the mistress, and from this results
a continual series- of complications
and misunderstandings.
Mr. Algernon Wells as the master
carried through in a highly creditable
manner, and though rather prone to
overact the part, a fault tbat further
experience of the "boards" will no
doubt relieve him of, was without
doubt one of the hits of the evening.
Mr. Brown was extremely good.
To Miss Grace Pinder. who. as
Petunia, the housemaid, had one of
the leading parts, must be yielded the
palm. This young lady rose magnificently to the occasion and carried
the bouse wilh her throughout. With
a clear enunciation and fine acting
presence the manner with which she
alternately screened master and man,
while at the same time holding a
sword of Damocles, in the shape of a i
photo of the "Bounding Sisters," over
the former, was excruciatingly funny
and fully deserved the continuous ap-
plauae meted out to her.
Fraser Green, father-in-law of Septl |
mus I'ontlfex. was also much "in the j
soup," and Mr. R. B. Hill, who por-
frayed the part, kept his end up well I
despite the fact that his imaginations j
did not always coincide with those or |
his worthy, or shall we say, unworthy |
son-in-law. I
Mrs. J. D, Taylor in the character j
of  Mic'a Green, wife of Kraser Green,,
made the most of a not over large'
part, and displayed the   art    of the
finished actress.
Of the rest of the cast, while the
parts were not of any great prominence, each one did his or her best.
These parts were portrayed by Miss
Ruth Petter. Miss Ethel Homer. Mr.
Li Avory White, Mr. Charles Hrown.
Mr. Frank  Hill and  Mr. Minard  Hill
The whole presentation showed undoubtedly that much time and pains
had been taken with rehearsals, and
though the general tendency ran towards overacting, this is a fault not
uncommon among the amateur "profession" and ie only remedied by e\
perlence, so, to somewhat garble
Alicia Green's final words hefore the
curtain, "No doubt they will be at It
again."

Dominion Railway Commission Grants
Road Special Rate.
Ottawa, Dec. 3.���The Dominion Railway Commission this afternoon Issued
an order granting the application of
the C. P. R., Grand Trunk, Canadian
Northern and Michigan Central railroads to Increase their demurrage on
freight cars from $1 per day to $2 and
*3.
The increased rates, however, will
be allowed only from Dec. 15 of thi3
year to March 31 of next year. The
railways asked for $2. $3 and $4 for

the $4 charge was not sanctioned by
the board. Henceforth $2 will be assessed by the rialways for the first
twenty-four hours free time, and $3

The order, however, is not to apply
to cars held in transit at stop-over
points under published tariffs which
have been filed by the board.

Mrs. Haines, an inmate of a Toronto asylum, bad been subpoenaed to
give evidence, but the asylum authorities would not consent. Dr. Smith, Inspector of prisons and asylums, and
Dr. Foster, superintendent of the Toronto asylum, testified that Mrs.
Haines was laboring under hallucina
tions and had been in that condition
for some time.
They maintained that it would be
utterly wrong for ber to give evidence
in the caBe. Dr. Smith insisted tha'
it would be monstrous to allow any
patient to be brought from an asylum
to the witness stand.
In the court, after hearing Doctors
Smith. Foster and Clare, the court
agreed that it would not be right to
ask for Mrs. Haines under such circumstances. The prosecution was
then abandoned as the whole case was
based on what experts state were Mrs.
Haines' hallucinations.
