Southern Pacific Oregon Express Held Up.
Two Unmasked Men Bound and Gagged Three Clerks in Car-
Rifled Mall
Redding, Cal., Jan.  6.���-The northbound Oregon express of the Southern
Pacific, wbich left San Francisco at
8:20 last night, was robbed of a large
quantity of registered mail by    two
unmasked men early today. Entrance
to tbe mall car was forced when the
train stopped at Red Bluff, 36 miles
from this city. The three clerks wero
bound and gagged and six    pouches
of registered mall were rifled.   When
the train drew into the station here
at 6:40, the robbers dropped oft and
escaped.   A good description of tbem
was obtained, however, and the officials think they will soon be captured.
Mall sacks had been exchanged at
Red bluff and one of the clerks was
about to leave tbe car to wait for a
train   that   was   following   when   the
two bandits entered the mail car and
[closed the door.
"What's up T" exclaimed Charles J.
[Ryan, one ef the clerks.
"This is a holdup," coolly respond-
lied one of the men, drawing a revolver and covering the startled clerks.
lyan aad Robert B. Wai ner, both of
vhom reside   ln Berkley,   and   their
assistant, were bound by the second
bandit    with    cords from    the   mall
sacks.    AH were then    gagged    with   	
handkerchiefs  and    thrown   flat    on I should  not  draw  apart as  they

Minthorne, Peebles, Travers, Burnett
and Hardman Spoke at Alderman
Bryson's Meeting.
Five of the aldermanic candidates
made flve minute speeches last night
at Alderman bryson s meeting. Mr.
Minthorne was given the flrst spell,
and he was followed by Peter heebies,
Joseph 1 ravers, I), li. Burnett and
A. Hardman.
Mr. Minthorne thought the people
should be taken Into the contllencn
of tbe mayor on all occasions. With
regard to the harbor scheme be was
only ln favor of it as far as it benefited the city within its own boundaries. Another plank in his platform
was the saie of the -thirty acres tho
city owned in the north part of its
limits, and with the $150,000 or so
thus obtained the erection of a new
hall over Lytton square. The old bah
should be turned into stores below,
and used for library purposes above,
ln the new building tbere could be
about ten stores on Columbia street,
apd the market, as now, on Front
street, while the municipal buildings
could be above. Tbls would not cost
the city a dollar, and would give them
a revenue that would pay for all the
sidewalks for ever. He considered
Tlpperary was tbe proper site for the
High school, and $77,000 was far too
large a sum to pay for a site. One
hundred thousand dollars was also
too much for a High school building.
Mr. Peebles spoke quietly, and re-
fen ed his audience to the Dally Ne*s
and the Columbian for his platform,
he advocated the maintenance of a
spirit of friendly partnersnip between
the mayor and aldermen and the
citizens, and    thought    these parties

it was always good policy to spend
money    where    it   was    raised,   but

municipalities. Returning to the
"quarrelsome nature of city politics,"
he suggested that something might be
done to do-away with this, if the
newspapers and the citizens* would
talk more of the mayor and council
having done no end so instead of the
mayor alone.

Candidate For Mayoralty Makes   Telling Speech in St
Barnabas Hall���Expounds and Elucidates His Charges of
Czarocratic Conduct by Mayor Lee���Harbor Improve-
ment Scheme Foreshadowed.
Alderman Bryson was in good form about 3Vs more than Stimson, but slat St. Barnabas ball last pight, and
made a damaging attack on Mayor
Lee's rollcy and actions of the past
year, before a good audience. Tbe
speaker went over most of the well
known points, but with greater force
than usual, and especially explained
at length his vet sion of the selling ot
the city bonds by tbe mayor. The
B. C. E. R. franchise, the Coquitlam
dam, the board of works, and auto
cratic methods all came In for critic
ism, and al-o the secret harbor improvement plans, which, said the
weaker, the mayor was keeping up
his sleeve.
Some glimmer of what this plan
may be was also thrown out in passing,    'the a I-erman    spo..e    oi    tue

If Elected Mr. A. E. Kellington Wilt
Consider Citizens' Comfort���
Cemeteries and Police.
A progressive policy carefully considerate of the general body of the
citizens, was outlined by Mr. A. B.
kellington, candidate for the council,
to a representative of the Dally News
yesterday afternoon. To begin with,
Mr. Kellington stated tbat if elected
he would do everything In bis power
to forward tbe harbor development
scheme now being prepared.
"No one," he said, "who has the
interests of the town at heart, or
who owns property ln tbe neighborhood, could fall to Live thla matter

great potentialities, and is today ou
the threshhold of great developments,
If only sbe Is guided aright."
A matter Mr. Kellington takes particularly to heart Is the present condition of the cemeteries. "These are
disgracefully kept at present," said
tbe prospective alderman, "and the
only way to remedy this Is for the
city to take over tbe management ot
tbem itself. The walks and everything about them have been sadly
neglected." Mr. Kellington also feels

Tbe   weather   continue*    to     be
against a good market, but notwlth
standing^ this    business was   fairly
good  yesterday    morning.    Supplies,
however, were short, as farmers cannot get their produce to town easily,
the roads up country being almost Impassable, and transportation on   tbe
river being stopped by the Ice.   The
result of this comparative    shortage
was that prices were very flrm, and
showed an advance in some quarters.
Potatoes  were particularly  strong,
and rose about $3 on the ton. Farmers are unwilling to take these roots
out at present, as they do not know
from day to day whether the weather
Is going- to be cold or not, and the
result ls that there were not many
ln the market.    The same remarks
apply to all roots, and the abundance
so evident in the rast few weeks was
no longer ln evidence.
Poultry also was not so plentiful
as it has been recently, and chickens
I accordingly rose   ln price.    Dressed |
i fowl sold at retail was also more expensive, and good birds were fetching 30 cents a pound.   Dressed geese
were off the wholesale market. Eggs,
however, showed no change, and   lt
does not look as tf this staple will go
any  lower   now,  and  though  prices j
may be stationary for   a time,   tho
next move Is expected ln an upward
There was a good show of pork on
the market, ana prices ruled steady.
Other meats were not plentiful, and
veal strengthened a little.
In the flsh market price changes
did not occur, and there was nothing
particular to notice ln this section of
the market.

the B. C. Electric Railway, particularly ln the vital matter ot the city's
water supply at Coquitlam Lake. The

Mayor Lee has undertaken to defend
throughout. Unfair and unbusinesslike methods in the sale of city bonds,
with consequent loss and discredit to
the city. Laxity In the enforcement
of the law against disorderly houses
and the unlicensed sale of liquor
Such in brief Is my indictment of
Mayor Lee on his record as completed
wtth the year 1911, though he started
very differently and maintained an
appearance of consistency on most of
these questions for some time. This
indictment, wllich I submit ia a serious one, has been before the ratepayers in both local newspapers for
over a week, and Mayor Lee has
made no attempt to answer through
tlie press.
At ray meeting nt Sapperton, Wednesday night, the mayor, at his first
I public appearance in this campaign,
j gave an exhibition of fancy skating on
j very thin ice and falling In two or
three times, but that was all.
Mayor Lee has not only avoided
any responsible and self-respecting
statement ovei* bis own signature
through tbe public press, but has announced ho public meetings but one,
on the eve of election day, when he
hopes, evidently, by a lot of glittering generalities and vague, high-
sounding promises, at the last mo-
infest, when the truth of his statements cannot be investigated, to
make the electors forget all matters

Terminal City Team Beat New Westminster Seven by Familiar
Score of 8-3.     ^|
'The Westminster hockey team
failed to live up to. the expectations
of its supporters ln Its first encounter
with the Vancouver players at the
Arena rink yesterday evening, permitting Prank Patrick's stalwarts to
emerge victors with an eight to three
score���the same score as waa recorded in the opening game at Victoria on Tuesday, wben the Westminsters were the victors.
Nearly one hundred Westminster
men made the trip to Vancouver . to
see the match, many of the supporters
of the Koyaliats seeing Ice hockey for
the llrst time. Although completely
overshadowed by the Vancouver supporters, who numbered over three
thousand, the Westminster rooters attended to the vocal end ot the business in great style. The members of
executive of the locals turned out ln
force to watch the game.
Vancouver won the victory mainly
because ot the splendid combination
and aggressive tactics ot the forward
line. The Westminster defence was

Statistics recently compiled by the
Commission of Conservation show
that the death rate in Canadian coal
mines is much higher than ln any-
other civilized country. In 1902, tbe
year of the Fernie dlssster, the death
rate per 100 men employed (above

for the ten years preceding 1910, however, was .4.79. The United States
comes next with an average rate for
the same period of 3.43. Perhaps the
worst aspect of the situation Is the
fact that the death rate from coal

and for the completion of the Sap- l
perton    School    Sixteen    Thousand
Four Hundred Dollars ($16,400.00).   !
Whereas it ls necessary to provide
a site and erect a Public School thereon In the West End of the "city and to
pay the balance due for the site of the
Sixth  Avenue School and  balance of
the cost of the Queenaboroug-h School
and to complete the Sapperton School,
ami lt will be necessary to raise    the
sum of .Ninety-seven Thousand DollarB
($��7,O*O.00)   for  the .purposes aforesaid.
And whereas It appears that if the
���aid sum of $97,000,010 bo appropriated
from the general revenue of the city
for the ourrent year the rate of taxation will ibe excessive, and it Is expedient that auch excessive taxation
ahould ibe avoided and the said sum
should 'be raised on the credit of the
Corporation and that debentures
should -be Issued for that amount.
And nvhercas for tne payment or
Interest on the debentures proposed to
be Issue! under this by-law and for
creating a .jinking fund for the payment of the said debentures when due
It will be necessary to raise by special
rate In addition to all other rates each
year during the currency of the said
debentures the sum of Five Thousand
and Twenty-four and 95-100 Dollars
And whereas In order to raise the
said yearly sum of $6224.95 an equal
special rate on the dollar will be required to be levied on the whole rateable property of the city of New Westmlnater.
And .whereas the whole rateable
property of the said city according to
the last revised assessment roll thereof Is Nine Million Five Hundred and
Ninety-two Thousand Nine Hundred
Two Hundred and Twenty-four and
95-100  Dollars  ($5224.05).
And whereas the total amount .of the
existing debenture debt of the said
city is Two Million (me Hundred and
Fifteen Thousand Three Hundred Dollars ($2,115,300.00) Irrespective of the
sum of Four Hundred and Forty-two
Thousand Dollars ($442,000.00) proposed to ibe raised under this by-law
and the "Loan Hy-Laiw 1911," "High
School Site By-Law 1911," and "High
School Building By-Law 1911," of
which none of the principal or Interest
is in arrears.
Now therefore the Municipal Council of thc Corporation of the City of
New Westminster enacts as follows:���
1. It shall be lawful for the Mayor
of the said city to raise by way of loan
from ar>y person or persons; body or
bodies corporate who may 'be Willing

2. It shall be lawful for, the Mayor
to cause any number of debentures to

the aum of $97,000.00 for such sums
of money as may be required not less
than $100.00 onch or an equivalent expressed In pounds sterling of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland at a value of 4.866 to the pound
