Pails, Jan. 10.���Theophile Belcasse,
minister of marine in the French cabinet, has accepted the portfolio of
minister for foreign affairs ln succession to Justin De Selves, who resigned yesterday after a dramatic
scene during the meeting of tbe Senate committee on foreign affairs. It
is rumored today that other changes
may occur in the ministry and speculation Is rife as to who wlll join the
cabinet, lt was the cablnent-break-
er, Georges Clemenceau, who brought
about the ministerial crisis as he
has done on many previous occasions,
he has been a thorn in the side of
Premier Calllaux tor some time and
was aware that there was some dissension between tbe foreign minister and the premier.
When, during the meetin gof the
Senate committee, M. Caillaux denied
that there had been secret negotiations between. France and Geimauy
on the subject of Morocco, M. Clemenceau sprang to his feet and
burled the question at M. De Selves:
"Will you confirm the premier's
After some hesitation the foreign
minister replied that he could not answer tho question because he was between a double duty���the telling of
the truth and tbe interests of his
country. Later Mr. De Selves Informed
the piemler that he could not remain
with him in tho cabinet and handed
liim his resignation.
When he formerly held office as foreign minister, M. Delcasse was successful in forming friendly relations
between France and several foreign
cojntries, including Russia, Great
l.ritain and Spain. M. Delcassee is
75 years ell and started his career
as a -newspaper writer. He was elected to the Chamber of Deputies in

Vancouver, Jan. 10.���Mr. John Anderson, who was injured ln the coasting accident on Shaughnessy Heights,
died after flve days' unconsciousness
at midnight. Mr. Anderson had charge
of the bobsled as it was rushing down
Granville street south, when It shot
into a post at the corner of that atreet
and Eighteenth avenue. His headgp-
ceived such a shock that, despite the
skill of Dr. Dolby nt Bute Street hospital, he remainei insensible to' the

Bank of Hamilton. He was 34 years

Mayor Lee wound up his campaign
in tbe opera house last night with an
entire change of piogiam���a lightning
chang performance that was spectacu
lar und dazzling.
At   the   meeting   at Sapperton, on
Monday   evening,   because Alderman
Bryson In the few minutes allotted to
blm, did not go exhaustingly Into all
i the mayor's delinquencies, that buoy
' ant  and   resilient gentleman  joyfully
assumed,  nr  pretended    to    assume,
that Alderman Bryson had withdrawn

I Mayor John A. Lee, and Informed the

to the first article of the indictment,
charging him. with "usurping thu
rights and powers of committees of

in himself." One cf the chief cuses
in |.olnt cited by Alderman Bison
waa Mayor Lee's utter ignoring, in
his, interview with the B. C. K. K.
directors, of the two other members
of the- committee (Aldermen Gray
and Bryson) appointed With' himself
to look after the relations of the city

Mayor Lee, lt will be remembered
at former meetings, put forward the
excuse for cutting out his aldermanic

Lapt ntgfet the Ifnge and., curious
and gravely Interested audience in
the opera house listened with bated
breath while Mayor Lee gave a
lengthy, minute and circumstantial
account of' the whole .dramatic episode, which, while lt represented his
worship in the calcium light of hia
own vivid imagination as a regular
"Jack the Giant Killer." could' not
disguise from the Interested and
somewhat saddened citizens that they
were listening to an entirely new
version of an altogether different
story as told before by the mayoral
head���to a complete confession that
he had not told tne truth before, and
that Alderman Bryson's indictment
in this respect was thus fully proved
out of Msyor Lee's own mouth.
After such a complete break down
and scaffold confession as that, lt Is'
hardly worth referring to the many
other pitiable and palpable evasions,
subterfuges, and direct misrepresentation with which Mayor Lee tried
to squirm hla way through the remaining links of the damning Indict:
ment. Most of this had been heard
before, and waa not very convincing.,

but the old points were reiterated
with fresh force. Mr. Bryson declared
that none of the mayor's explanations

had meant to keep the rates up. If,

to the Building Inspector's report.
Previously to this year no record wai
kept, so that comparisons are impos

is well in excess of any reached ln
earlier years. A satisfactory feature
ot the report ls tbat it shows that tils
department is apparently self-sustaining. A total of $1,366.40 was col
iected ln fees durin gthe eleven
months, and as tke value of permits
granted last January is estimated at
$300,000, the sum for the twelve
months would have reached over
$1000 which would have been sufficient to pav the single salary and the
office expenses.
The figures for tbe eleven months

there should be a fight to bring about
a free discussion of affairs. It required, however, some courage on his
part to come out and oppose John A.
Lee, for "he's a man." Only one
thing of all the mayor had said about
him had left a sting, and that was
when he called him "a snake in the
grass," and the mayor made lt no
better by qualifying the remark late.'

tie had not planned to have the company up for stealing water, but for
tampering with the hydrant, and
Mayor Lee had said, go ahead. Mr.
Purvis came up, not to the councll, as
Mayor Lee had aald, but to the mayor
himself, and .after that, when the
question came before, tke water committee the mayor wanted them to
give up the charge. Finally, the vote
in the council on the question was
tied, and the mayor gave his casting
vote against him, thus, he thought,
throwing down his friends and his
policy. "That sort of business is
what I call atar chamber policy," exclaimed the speaker. The. original
star chamber, he claimed, diving lnta
history, was founded by Henry the
Seventh to punish large offenders
against the law; the present one was
used to protect them. There's the
difference between the atar chamber,
when Henry VII was king, and when
Mayor Lee waa mayor of Nent Weatmlnster."
As for the claim of the mayor that
no business had been done during the
past year without the content and
knowledge of tbe council, It could net
be supported, and he Instanced the
case of the appointment of Str
Charles Tupper in connection with
the city's lawsuit about the land at
Coquitlam lake.
The meeting of the B. C. R. R.
directors  with the- mayor was 'also
touched on.   "lt may be all right, it
may be all wrong/' said Mr. Bryson,
"but     If     Aldeiman    I Gray     and
himself   had    been    present    tbere
would probably hsve been no trouble
about it at all.   Tbat Coquitlam lari.ll
ault had been the "great bugbear fori

ollcy with regard to   thia, la
would be to bring it  to a

C. T. U. in regard to the latter, that
he would consult with representatives
of all the churches and societies, and
carry out the rollcy decided on at thid
meeting. With regard to the former
he made his only promised, as being
the only thing that he had power to
carry out, namely, that while he waa
mayor no corporation would get anything that it should not. "No corporation and no interest can steal anything from the city without the consent of the mayor. I will keep the

Rites and Alleged Lawless
Acts of Strange Sect.
. Readers of G. K. Chesterton's
clever book, "The Innocence of
Father Brown," will remember the
story about the sun worshipers, and
the murder conspiracy of which its
founder was the chief, and they wlll
be inteiested to learn that most offences except that of murder have
been laid at the door of the chief prophet of an American body of sun
worshipers. Kidnapping is the specific
charge on which the "Rev." D. Ottoman Zar Adusht Hannish, the leader
of the sun worshipers will be arraigned.' His alleged victim is George
Lindsay, the 12-year-old nephew of
Charles R. Lindsay, of Chicago, president of the Lindsay Light Co. The
boy's mother is a member of the cult,
and is anxious that ber son should be
restored to the keeping of the Maz-
daznans, aa they call ^themselves.
George Is very anxious not to go, for
he says that while he was under their
care he was permitted to eat nothing
; but grapes and beer. He is as thin
; as a rail, and in very bad health.
i Should be die before his mother, she
| will inherit the fortune of a million
dollars left Jointly to herself and her
son by her husband.
A Salt Lake Cult.
The founder of the cult. Hannish.
! is said to be of Irish birth, his
father's name being Hennessy. The
idea of establishing acult of worship-
, ers occurred to him
| when working as a
Lake City, and Utah Ideas are said to
permeate the religion that he founded, ln justice to Hannish, it must be j
said that his press agent denies these
reports, aud declares that his patron
comes from the Northern Himalayas,
where he was a member of a tribe
that claims to have solved the philosophy of life. The Mazdaznan cult t
is said to represent a fine assortment j
of Orientals beliefs, bi ought up to
date for American consumption. It is
not safe for an outsider to define tho
beliefs of Hennessy and his followers,
for they are clouded In secret rites.
Theory of Sun Worshipers.
Nevertheless, the chief prophet has
lectured in many cities, and newspaper reporters have been invited to
attend. When Hannish was in Philadelphia one of his lectures was attended by a reporter of the Ledger,
who says that Hannish thus set forth

Expressing   Deepest    Religious    Emotions, Were One in Spirit
An extensive vote was taken recently ln the United States, in order
to ascertain the ten most popular
church hymns, and, as a result, "Rock
of Ages," and "Jesus, Lover of My
Soul," were found to rank among the
very first. These two hymns have
been loved and sung more than any
others by Protestants of all denominations.
This fact is especially significant,
when it is known that these two
hymns were probably written on the
same night about 150 years ago, by
two men, and under peculiar circumstances. 1 he inspiration to compose
them was the result of a long and
heated controversy on the doctrine
and philosophy between the great
hymnologist, Wesley, and Augustus
Montague Toplady. They parted, each
convinced that he was right. Top-
lady, a staunch defender of Calvinism,
went to his home and wrote "Rock
of Ages," believing that it would
"wing" his opponent's "insolent" doc-
some years ago trlne ot entire sanctitlcatlon. Wesley,
typesetter in Salt ^re ,,e retlred. ln spiritual exaltation,
��� -��� -��� --,., ._ composed "Jesus, Lover of My Soul,"
in which he sought to embody his convictions.
Perhaps netiher imagined that both
Calvinists and Methodists would
unite in selecting these two hymns,
as the best of the "Songs of Zion." It
goes to show that men may hold
widely different religious and philosophical views, and still be one in essentials.

all life, therefore, it should be worshiped. It is necessary to have someone take care of the power the sun
produces, hence the farmer's is the
greatest of all occupations. It is also
necessary that there should be someone to distribute what the sun,
through the farmer, has produced.
Hence the waiter is second to only
the farmer in honor. This philosophy
was preached in Boston, but curiously
enough the listeners did not seem
much impressed with it. Then Hannish moved to Lowell, where he had
better fortune, for a Mrs. Shaw came
under his Influence, and handed over
, to the sun worshipers her entire for-.

windfall, Hannish inaugurated the
dew baths, which are now an important rite.
Dew Baths and Divorces.
In the early morning the worshipers arise while the dew is yet on
tbe grass, and anointing their bodies
with oil, they roll themselves In the
dewy grass, clad only in the coating
of oil. When her children heard that
Mrs. Shaw was thus disporting herself, they applied to the courts to
have a guardian appointed for her.
Several divorce suits were another
result of the publicity given to the
dew baths, and Hannish found it advisable to move to other pastures for
the time being, although Lowell remains the headquarters of the cult,
thanks to the generosity of Mrs.
Shaw. When the troupe met Mrs.
Lindsay, Hannish assured her that
she was destined to be a "Vahdah," or
high priestess. He told her also that
her son was to be the means of some
special revelation to the worshipers,
and that he needed to be put in
training for tbe high offices awaiting
him. Shortly afterwards, Mrs. Lindsay and the boy disappeared, leaving
no trace behind them.
The   Kidnapped  Heir.
The boy's uncle, suspecting that he
might have met with foul play, employed detectives, and they soon picked up the trail of the fugitives. They
tracked them to Los Angeles, and
back again to Chicago, where the sun
worshipers had built a temple. The
place was raided and the boy rescued.
The boy said that every morning the
members of the colony rise before
daybreak and go to the roof of the
building to await the rising of the
sun. When lt appears they break Into strange Incantations which constitute their chief religious ceremony.
Hannish himself dresses in long white
garments,' his neck encircled by a
black stole, clasped at the ends with
a large red seal. His costume is likely to be materially altered In the
course of the next few weeks, if the
police of Chisago are able to prove
half of the charges that they promise
to bring against him.

To the Electors of the City
1       of New Westminster
Ladies   and Gentlemen,���As   thero I
may be little opportunity of publicly j
placing my views before you, previous j
to election day, I herewith submit to |
you my opinions on the most import-
ant issues to us as citizens, at   this
period in the history of our city.   In
asking your support on election   day,
January 11.  1912, I  will  support and
advocate  the  following  measures,   lf
you honor me by election:
1. Open discussion of our city s
2. Even administration of our city
3. The placing ln first class condition of our streets and highways leading to and from the sunoundlng
municipalities, and, co-operating with
them Io this end. This includes the
Fraser river, our greatest highway.
4. lhe adoption of a harbor scheme
adequate to our importance as the
only fresh water harbor in the province.
5. Efficient service in our city departments.
6. The Increase of the mounted
police service in Sapperton and tho
upper parts of the city, and the installation of a system of communication to tlie head police office, from
the'je parts.
7. Municipal ownership and immediate installation of a first clas3
gas plant.
8. Generous encouragement lo all
industries, employing white labor
9. Encouragement of a spirit of
friendship between the city council
and the citizens.
I think the time has arrived when
the C. P. R., the G. N. 11. and the B.
C. E. R. should secure sufficient land
lo establish yards of their own, Instead of using our public streets for
that purpose, as they do now.
I will support the reduction ot
water and electric light rates to tbe
consumers of the same. I will at all
times safeguard the city's interest
against any corporation.
I will be pleased to place my views
more fully  before  you,  if  the opportunity  offers,  before election day.

Origin of Idea They Are Unlucky, Belief of the Ancients.
The jewel of October is the opal.
The ui terns believed it possessed ine
po>v'er of bestowing second sight on
those under its influence, pruwdeii
thej (iid not use the power for selflsn
eudii. lly its misuse tbey became un-
luc.y in love, disappointment ana
misfoitune dogging their footsteps.
t.ie meory waB staited that for occult leasons tbe opal was unlucky or
that it Drought ill, luck to Its possessor, und succeeding generations have
inueiued the distrust that was
'1 ne idea that opals were unlucky
is thought by many to be on account
of tiie unfortunate part Sir Walter
Scott assigned to It ln his "Anne of
Glerstein." But the gem must have
appealed to so great a lover of beauty
in animate and inanimate natuie as
Sir waiter, and it must have been
far indeed from his thoughts to engender superstition by giving a bad
name to a marvelous example of creative energy.
Ihe opal Is also associated with
misfortune by Russians of both sexes,
who, should they chance to see an
opal among the goods displayed for
purchase, will buy nothing more that
day, aud it is a curious tact that tbe
Japanese, being under the sign that
this stone belongs to, should be the
nai,on to bring ill luck to the Russian s during the disastrous war between these two countries.
The Romans of old loved the opal
so well that they bestowed upon it
the name of "lovely youth." It never
occurred to them that It waa a gem
whlcn carried ill luck to ita poses-
sor. Lucky indeed did that Roman
esteem himself who was the owner
or an opal that filled hla neighbor
with envy.
ln the middle agea there were not
wanting men who shared the Roman'a
weakness, for opala did not lose their'
popularity as time went on. Bach
century bi ought lta own Joys snd Borrows, luck and ill luck to the human
race, and each age brought lta fashions in Jewelry aa in clothing, but
the opal remained high ln favor and
entered largely Into the adornment of
both sexes. Its franglbllity waa well
known, but thla was regarded not aa
a, failing so much aa a special claim
on tlie care of all who handled It
Alone among Jewels the opal defies the ingenuity of the Imitator. It
owes its chatm not so much to ita
own Intrinsic mei its aa to tbe splendor of the rays of light that it reflects, lt ls a chameleon of atones.
Pliny, writing 1,819 yeara ago, remarked that it "displays at once the
piercing flre of carbuncles, the purple
brilliancy of amethysts and the tea
green of emeralds, the whole blended
together anl lefulgent with * brightness that is quite incredible."
Unlike other gems, the opal Is a
stone with u temper. The diamond
rises superior to climate, as also does
the ruby, the emerald and ths Bap-
jihlro, but the oral has an organiza
tion so delicate that It loses color
when exposed to severe cold and becomes dull under the influence of
moisture. But when warmed by the
rays of the sun or even by the temperature of the hand It recovers its
goo:l humor, resumes its exquisite
brilliancy. Prejudice dies hard, but
with regard to the opal lt is on the
wane and the day is probably not distant when the gem will no longer be
regarded with superstition.���Pall Mall
The   Shah's    Kitchen.
Who keeps the costliest kitchen in
the world? Not as one might imagine, the American millionaire, but thc
Shah of Persia. The utensils, fittings and furnishings of the Shah are
said to be worth ��530.000. Every
saucepan   is  gilded   inside,  and    the
dishesappearing on his table are of
solid gold, as well as the spoons,
knives and forks, the handles of
which are besides ornamented with
precious stones. Moreover, the chef,
in preparing dishes for the shah's
table, must use none but silver spoons
and forks, and any dish on which he
puts cold viands to keep them must
be also of silver, glided inside. The
i Spanish royal kitchen is also an ex-
! pensive establishment. The sauee-
I pans In which the food for the royal
table is prepared are said to be worth
��12,000, while the value of the cooking utensils used for the royal children is put at ��8000, every saucepan being inlaid with gold, on the
ground of this being necessary for the
children's health.���Tit-Bits.

newspapers are 'sufficiently "thorough" to be the organ of Dr. Sun. The

of Prance or America. The names of
Lincoln, Washington, Mazzlni, and
eveia Napoleon, are appealed to, but
the Napoleon they desiderate ls a
greater military louder than the revolution has yet produced. The declared object cf the revolution is
again and again stated to be liberty
and revenge. The Chinese are said
to be like horses and dogs, slaves of
the Manchus, whom Dr. Sun calls
with frequent derision in his piocla-
mation "Tartar robbers." It is inconceivable that the millions of China
ahould any longer submit to a mere
handful of aliens like the Manchus.

Letter to the
\   Ratepayers
New Westminster, B. fc..
Jan. 9, 1912.
Dear. Sir or Madam:���
I am, as you sre aware, l candidate for the Mayorality of the City of
New Westminster for tbe present
yesr.. (
You did me the honor to elect me
as Alderman for two years past, re-j
electing me laat year by the largest
vote polled for either Mayor or Aldermen, j "
It was my desire and intention to ,
offer my services again as Alderman, j
and, had some suitable candidate
held the field against Mayor Lee's reelection, I would have stood for alderman; but, convinced that, in the city's
interests, Mayor Lee's re-election
should be' contested and yielding to
the representations of many ratepayers' mho are of the same opinion,
I am before you as a candidate for
tbe Mayoralty, and hereby solicit
your vote and influence for me for-
that position.
I have by published addresses and
at public meetings since the campaign began, as well as by my position and utterances ln tbe Council tor
some months past, Informed you generally of my reasons for opposing tbe
re-election of Mayor Lee at thia time.
Briefly they are: His usurping the
rights and powers of committees of
the council and centralizing these all
in himself, maintaining in aggravated
form the one-man system that he so
strongly condemned ln his predecessor. His failure adequately to safeguard the city's interests in Us relations to the B. C. Electric Railway,
particularly in the vital matter ofthe
city's water supply at Coquitlam lake;
the management or mismanagement,
with consequent great waste ln expenditure, of the Board of Works
and City Engineer's department,
which Mayor Lee has made himself
fully responsible for; unfair and unbusinesslike methods in the sale of
municipal    bonds,   wltn    consequent
shouted triumphantly to ber friends
and sprang forward to claim ber
(rise, whicb ��le was aura was*large
mountain lion. Oa reaching it. he*',,
frer, she was dismayed to find a dead
Indian dog, Whose owner was approaching, from another direction. Sbe
hastened to express ber sorrow to
tbe Indian, bat he did not seem to
worry much about the accident,1 and
was easily pacified wltb a few
pieces of silver. Later in tbe day,
coming i^on the camp of the Indians,
near a small, river, she ssw tbe skin
of her erstwhile savage mountain
Hon hung over a rope to dry, and Its
former owner cooking Its succulent
flesh. Tbe Indian, with true Western
hospitality, 'offered her a generous
portion, but while Miss Nickersoa
claimed that roast dog steak was her
favorite edible, she waajn't at all hungry Just then. *"-
Another Sanford Dodge story is as
follows: Walter Whiteside was doing the Wiregrass country, with bis
Shakespearean production. Requiring
the services of a super, be asked tbe
manager of the opera house if he
could furnish a capable amateur for
the evening's bill. Tbe manager was
obliging. "Sure," we've got a guy
around bere that did 'the same part
for Sanford Dodge two or three
Night came as it sometimes does,
and Mr. Whiteside stood In the center of the stage waiting for the new
recruit to come on. He repeated the
cue several times. No response. Finally he rushed off. "Why don't you
come on, don't you hear your cue?"
"You didn't give me the cue that
Mr. Dodge gave me."
"What   did Mr: Dodge say?"
"He always says: "You damn fool,
come on."

minister also intimated that the department would pay particular attention to the trunk roads of the pro-

these highways, without wholly withdrawing the support given ln the past
to these cross-roads.

I stand for a policy directly opposite to the course which Mayor Lee
has brought himself to, contrary to
his earlier professed principles, in all
these matters. 1 stand for a reorganization of the City Engineer's office;
for a fair Wage clause ln municipal
contracts; for full recognition of tbe
rights of the Council and of its committees, and of the ratepayers when
desirable, to have a voice -v'th the
Mayor as to how their most vital interests and the people's money should
be dealt with; for hearty co-operation with the Council, the ratepayers, all representative pub ic bodies,
and the citizens generally, in advancing the city's interests in every possible way, deeming it no part of my
duty In thla connection to um say
public position to advance private interests.

One crisis in Lord Palmerston's life
illustrates tbe absolute good humor
which may prevail even when political enmity is at its worst. Lord Derby had made an attack upon him in
tbe Upper House with such energy
and eloquence that the odds against
him seemed overwhelming. But he
defended himself and his policy from
the dusk of one day to the dawn of
another with such tact, dexterity and
force of appeal to the national sense
of honbr that he was acquitted of all
blame by a majority of fourscore.
Next day in passing through the
corridor leading from tho ante-room
to the Upper House, one swing door
opened to his hand and at the same
moment the other to that of Lord Derby. They were opponents, but they
were also manly and sweet-natured
men.   They smiled.
"I was Just thinking," said Palmer-
ston, "What a clever fellow he was
who so nearly put me in a hole."
"Ah," was the rejoinder, "but nothing li.'te the cleverness of the fellow
Who got you out of it!"
and was one of the worst stretches

The meeting with the ministers
