Both Parties Are Unyielding���Turkish War Party Gain*
Strength in Constantinople-Each Side Claims Ability to
Resume Hostilities-Peace Plenipotentiaries Arrive
London-Greece Will Fall Into Line with Allies.
London, Dec. 13.���All the plenipotentiaries to the peace conference
which will convene here next week
for the purpose of ending the war in
Southeastern Europe are now in Lon
Unless the continuance of hostllltlcf
betwern the Turka and Greeks proves
a hindrance, there seema nothing in
sight to prevent the conference getting down to business immediately.
With regard ta a report from Constantinople that the Turks would refuse to meet the Greek plenipotentiaries In London unless Greece slgne.l
tbe armistice to which the other Balkan states have subscribed, the counsellor of the Turkish embassy here
said that he knew nothing of any such
instructions and did not believe the
Creeks would bave come to London
unless their country was prepared to
fall In line with the other Balkan
states as to the terms on which the.:
should meet.
Keen Struggle.
The newspaper Interviews given by
the Turkish and Bulgarian delegates
on their journey toward London Indicate tbat a keen struggle will tako
place ln the peace conference over
tbe possession of Adrlanople.
Both sides present an unyielding at
titude on this point, basing their
claims on tbe fact that tbeir armies
are In excellent condition to resume
hostilities. The Turks say they have
170,000 practically fresh troops behind
the Tchatalja lines, while despatches
from Constantinople Indicate that the
war party in the Turkish capital is
gaining Influence. No apprehension is
felt ta diplomatic circles bere, how
ever, that the plenipotentiaries will
separate without concluding peace.
Roumanian Question.
The present question has arisen
whether Roumania should Join the
ambassadorial conference, which will
convene simultaneously with the peaci
conference to discuss pending Euro
peau questions. It is said that Oer
many, Austria and Italy all favo*
Roumanla's participation. A difference
of opinion exists as to whether this
conference should discuss the q-estlon
cf a Servian port on the Adriatic.
-ft Is becoming increasingly probable
that a plenary conference of the
powers will assemble later tn Paris tc
complete the work of the ambassadorial conference, ratify Its See'sloni
and con.clnde a treaty settling the
near-eastern problem.

Ultimate Destiny.
While still early to prophesy on the
subject many residents in those districts bave already decided that Is
their ultimate destiny. The bugbear
of taxes Is more ghostly la Its terror
than real.
The committee appointed to look
after the incorporation of the district round Westminster Junction Into a city, and to adjust the financial
interests ot the urban and rural diversions of the dismembered municipality, ipet yesterday and adopted
recommendations which will be embodied in a report

"We have been discharging on an

accident like this." Such was the
statement made by Dr. Doherty, super
lntendent of the hospital for the insane, when questioned yesterday regarding the inquest that was held In
Vancouver oh Thursday upon the
body of Mrs. Janet Hood.
The facts of tbe case are that Mrs.
Hood was released on probation from
tbe asylum on Tuesday In the custody
of and at the special request of her
daughter, Mrs. James Pope, who promised to take ber to her home at Port
Hammond. Instead, however, it appears tbat the two women went to
Vancouver and Mrs. Pope lodged ber

was found dead in her room with a

The Abduction Club Was Formed For
ths Purpose of Carrying Off Hsiresias
by Fores and the Surly Club to Pro
mots the Use of Abusive Language.
One of the most extraordinary clubs
I.on,Ion bus ever knowu. says tbe
Standard, was the Sighing club, the
members of wblcb were supposed to be
wholly nbsorbed In thinking of tbeir
sweethearts. Kneli would hold In bis
band n bit of ribbon, n luck of hair, a
purse or some other article belonging
tn tlie object if Ills nflections, nud from
time tu time lie would address tbls nr
Hole In terms of endearment, no otber
speaking being allowed. On Initiation

u.pticiii ln honor of tils lndy, nud at tbe
meetings ti tine was imposed upon Ihe
member wlio did tiut sigh tive times

organized lu lTilti by some well ruu
netted Irish youths, who banded Ihem
selves together to iibduct heiresses nnd
good looking young women of gentle
birth. As tbere was a large member
ship, mnny forced marriages took place
In consequence of their exploits. Tbe
evil beeiime eventually so serious that
a special net of parliament was pnsaed
making abduction u capital offense.
The members assisted each otber by
providing relays of horses and carriages whenever necessary. Tbe wealth
of the two sisters Kennedy, daughters
of Iticburi] Kennedy of Rntbmendcn
manor, Waterford, caused the attention
of the members to be drawn to them
Gerald Byrne, grandson of Sir Gregory
lly rue. and .lames Strange Villard were
drawn lu tbe lottery, nud the abduc

The principals were arrested, tried
and condemned and tbey were execut

The club wns Introduced into Kngland
In 1770, but disbanded In 1802, wben
twenty nine memliers remained.
The No Nose club wns founded by n
gentleman who wns an unwilling follower of the Egyptian fashion of flat
faces. When Ihe memliers dined to
gether and a young pig. the favorite
dish, was the principal Item on the
menu the snout was always cut off.
The Club of L'gly Faces wan also
founded by a gentleman wbo boasted
nn enormously large nose. Another
member had a ebln of the size and
shape of a shoe born, another n huge
mouth and a fourth very large, protruding eyes. No one was eligible for
membership who hnd not some facial
malformation, and nil memliers on Inl
llation had to make a speech In praise
of Aesop, whose portrait buug over tbe
mantelpiece of the clqbroom.
The Surly club had its meeting
place nenr Billingsgate lish market,
and the membership was limited to
cabmen, carmen and watermen, who
used to meet once a week to exercise
Ibe art of abusive language In order
that tbey might not lose the reputation
they had gained. Any member found
guilty of courtesy or politeness was
promptly flned.

Though no change in price took
place, eggs on the city market yesterday showed a marked tendency to
weaken. The supplies were very good
bdt the demand was slow at the quoted prices. Consequently it ls expected that this will bring about a decline
ln the very near future.
The market on the whole was about
the average, though tlie very lncle

effect on the attendance.
The Btocks of meat, particularllv
pork, were slightly larger than usual
and though this resulted in a weakening of the demand the price, with the
exception of large hogs, remained Bta
Vegetable receipts were again on

Representatives of Victorious Balkan
States Arrive In London for
Conferences Monday.
London, Dec. 13.���The Greeka, Servian and Montenegrin peace delegates, who arrived hero were received with a heart-warming welcome
from hundreds ,of their fellow qountry-
inen who gathered at Charing Crow
station to nioef.thorn, aa representing
the Balkan Alllauoe came here prepared to ratify the Treaty of London,
whloh Is expettfed to'end forever ihe
misrule of the turk la the Near Eaat.
Just before 11 o'clock the boat

was a rush for the pullmans, at the

Servian and Montenegrin representatives, with^London policeman Clearing a path Mr them, made their way

to thel* howls.
Residents of London at the station
gates on hearing the cheers lifted
their Jsajsaflfce man representing the

representatives, but it is possible thc
foreign secretary will welcome the

The late arrival of some of the delegates makes lt Impossible for tha
conference at St. James Palace to be
opened before Monday. All the state
rooms at the palace will be at the disposal of the delegates and the picture
gallery will be the conference  room.
The general hospitality which ths
government will extend to the delegates Includes provision tor a luncheon at the palace of the lord mayor.
It was intimated today to Sir Edward Grey that citizens of London
wished to welcome and entertain the
delegates during their stay here and
there probably will be a great banquet at the Guildhall when the sessions ot the conference end.
None of the delegates would talk
last night about the conference but

Greeks, delivered a staggering blosr
at Turkish Intrigue by entering an
emphatic dental of tho stories that tho
Balkan Alliance have split their coalition and are breaking up.
M. Venlxelos, who was the father of
the alliance and realties better than

Balkan states united wlll win ud

"The coalition is u firm today as

unrestricted freedom of choice in the

hope to secure that vigilant interest In
public affairs by the greatest possible

had declared to be the distinguishing

The Ideal state, further, was one In

j man who wished to serve the state���
could find an entrance to the repre-
i sentatlve assembly if he could secure
: the support of a sufficient number of
electors to entitle him to a seat. The
ideal state was one in which the mem-
, hers of  the   representative  assembly
took a long view of the national requirements;  in  which they fearlessly
I gave utterance to their honest opinions:  In wllich they discussed public

Victoria, .Dec. 13.���New Westmln
ster suffered its second defeat of th*
hockey season tbls evening when th<-
Victorlas, playing before 4000 spectators, won out to the score of 6-4.
The game was replete with sensational dashes by either team, although
the shooting of the cupholders via.,
woefully weak at times, and this nc
counted for several sure goals being
Jimmy Gardner's bunch played an
uphill game against a team which had
been practicing Intact for the pas*

not yet got down to combination work.
Lester Patrick, Goldle Prodgers and
Lindsay were the features for the
Capital City outfit, 'Prodgers golns

accounted for the scoring sheet, hla
passing being a feature.

on the Sapperton grounds this afternoon. The chances of the Bankers to

It Is In the score, however, that

Mustard Must Go.
By the sucoesslul experiment* ot
tlie Ontario Government, there is a
probability that tho deadly nuftnr.l
weed which causes so much snxiety
among farmers, will be a thing of the
past within a few years. Prof. T��lil.
provinelsl farm director, has found a
way to kill tho mustard seed. Ls-t
spring he had a 100-scre farm near
Brockville, comprising fields of out*
snd barley, which were llterallv yellow
with the mustard weed, sprayed wiln
a solution, of bluestone or sulphid.-
of copper. This farm ha* irodnerd
very poet crops in the past, but thi*
fall there was an excellent yield a <l
oo trace* of mustard were iuund. Th.-
Bame method of killing the mustirJ
will be tried on the same farm next
spring in an eBort to flnd out whether this solution should be used on
aJiLIairms in th* provlnee.

While the congregation looked scornfully upon tbe avaricious Willie Baxter

contemptuously nfter a scornful examination of the barrel. "You can't

Plans   for    Celebration    of   Century
Without Warfare With  U. S.
Kept   Secret.
London, Dec. 13.���Although the,
strictest secrecy is maintained regarding the details of the scheme propounded by the British committee for
the celebration of the Anglo-American peace centenary, It Is certain that
these will be disclosed by Earl Grey
at the inaugural public meeting of the
British committee to be held at the
Mansion House on   Wednesday   next.
The fact that the committee is one
of the most representative ever
known in Great Britain, including as
It does members of the present ministry, the last administration, leaders of
the church, science, art, education
and literature and the confidence ot
political and municipal bodies, is :i
guarantee that the celebration will b^
folly worthy of the occasion. It Is
also understood that an an enormous
sum of money is to be spent in fittingly prepetuating the one hundredth
������nnivel-snry of peace amng the English-speaking peoples.
Confirmation has been received In
London that the Municipality of Ghent
will also enter Into the celebration,
and it is also said that leading member', of th<- neacp committees of England, the United States and Canada
wlll visit Ghent at that "time.
