The meeting was primarily called
to discuss the project of paving Westminster road, it being understood that
the government was waiting for the |
two municipalities to get together, decide upon some mutual course of action, and then confer with it. The
feeling of the meeting as expressed by
Reeve Weart was that the Westrain-

driver did all in his power to avert

Mr. John Thompson and his wife,

road, said the automobile when it

Thompson admitted he had had little
experience with motor vehicles, which
appeared materially to reduce the
strength of his statements.

study���with the object of safe-guarding the health of the citizens���and lo*
day no city on the continent has a
more carefully considered network

by C. H. Stuart-Wade, Publicity Commissioner of the city, giving an idea
of the development and progress of
Westminster. So many enquiries have
been received from Great Britain and
eastern Canada' and tho United State3
that it has been found advisable to
prepare and distribute such articles
from time to time. It is proposed to
issue many thousands of copies of the
accompanying article and distribute
them where they may do good in giving correct information regarding this
city und in attracting settlers and
possible industries.
"This city is one of particularly interesting features apart from its his-
to;y, for, within the last four years it
has developed in an extraordinary degree, as is evidenced by the fact that
its population of 6H78 In 1881, only
increased to 12,198 lu the following
seventeen jears (1908), whereas tho
end of 1911 (three years) saw It at
about 15,000, wliich the steady influx
of newcomers promises to double, at
least, within a/.ery few years.
Its Financial  Standing.
The general balance stieet to Dec.
31, lulu, Bhowed a capital surplus of
over 1682,QoO, with assets amounting
to J2,85l',014.B0. The balance sheet
for 1911, which will shortly be printed, will show an even better financial
position, notwithstanding the fact that
during the last year Improvements
were exempted and land only subjected to taxation���a form of single tax
which has again been adopted for

cape from 'Americanization' In a recent vote on recipioclty. The dangers of the 'Aineiicanlzation' of Canada do not lie so much in a freer
trude between north and south of tne.
American continent as ln the matter
of who owns Canada. The peril does
not lie in trade, but in ownership, for
you may rest assured that the people
who own a country will rule it.

'It is our profound and sincere de-
to detail, and within the next twelve
mouths every section of the city will
have its system complete. The steady
progress made is shown by the following figures: In 1909 the system was
only 9.35 miles in length; in 1910 it
was 15.85 miles, and In December.
1911, it grew to 4ti.71 miles, with 59

of 13.90 miles; for 49.K18 lineal teet
weie laid in various parts of the city,
ln addition to opening up new streets,
and laying upward of ten miles or

a further sum of $70,000 was expended on the permanent improvements
of the business thoroughtaie (Columbia Btreet) and $190,000 in other parts
of the city. Then will be during Hil_

sire in British Columbia to live in
peace and concord with our neighbors

is that this result most surely may
be brought about if we refrain from
any attempt to colonize Japan and if
Japan refrains from any further e/..
croachment on the American hemisphere.
"Every self-governing state entertains the ieasonable desire that its
immigrants should be euch as can be
welded into a homogeneous political
and economic and, above all, social
unit. It has the right to deny access
to an alien and unassimiiab'.e race. So
long as Asiatic immigration was confined to a few individuals, who scattered themselves over a large area,
there waa no particular problem. But
when these feople settled down in
solid phalanxes of 10,000 or more at a
time and place and became undigested and indigestible lumps in the po- j
litical ventricle the case called for
scientific diagnosis. This thins is '
happening, and all at once, in many :
quarters of the empire.
"It    is plain, too, that one   of the
numbers in the new Japanese world
program is the occupation of British I
Columbia.    According  to a report of ;
the assessment commissioner   several
jears ago  (I have no    later figures), !
nearly an eighth of the population of i
Vancouver was Oriental, with that o,'
the New  Westminster district larger. ;
But the Orientals are practically ali
male adults.    If they had their families with  them  tlieir numbers would I
have been  about live times as gieat.
and  this would have given over halt

.Local Soccer Enthusiasts Not Pleased
with Vancouver Executive���Must
Forfeit Two Points.
Tfee Senior Amateur soccer team received another raw Jolt at the hands
ol tlie Vancouver so-called sports last
evening, when the claim of the St. Andrew's team for two points In connection with the game on Saturday last
(a pme which never took place) was
allowed. Mr. �����.. G. Beaton was present at the meeting and voiced his protest against such a deal going through,
but was overwhelmed In point of
numbers, the other members of the
executive apparently making it a point
to soak Westminster to the limit.
The constitution of the league reads
"that the home secretary notify tbe
opposing team three full days ln advance of the game." Herb Ryall received a phone message on Friday
morning notifying the Senior Ama-
leurs to place a team In the field on
the following day in Vancouver.
Another deal which the Vancouver
aggregation passed through at the
previous meeting was that the amount
IKistt'd by the locals, seven dollars and
a half, was extended over to next season. In event of this city withdrawing from the league, the amount wlll

to the athletes and those concerned
in the local organizations of the training. There Is to be a great gathering
in London in May of the selected candidates from the different centres,
who will lie submitted to a series of
tests. Altogether, while it will be impossible Cer us to send out all our ab-
soluetly best men, it is already felt'
that the Old Country will be by no
means unWorthlly represented. We
can have but little bore of success in
what are denominated "field events"
���discus and hammer throwing, putting the , weights, the jumps, etc.���
which have not been very highly cultivated over here in ecent yeas, but a
little more attention has been given
recently to these events, thanks largely to the work of a special association
formed for the purpose, and we shall,
at all events, show some improvements.
The annual meeting for the election
of officers and preparing for the coming season was held last night by the
I Westminster Cricket club 	
iof Messrs. Sheriff, Hose & Co. Ar-
' rangements have been made for the

and the club proposes to give a dance

Tired of the Incessant vvranglings
which have taken place from time to
nine during the last two years, tbe
delegates at the meeting of the B. c.
L. A. held in Vancouver last evening,
decided upon.the commission laea,
giving power to three men, to tie
named, to govern the game from start
to linish, doling out penalties t" the
players and managers if necessary.
While practically all (he delegates
present at the meeting were iinniil-
liiois In Agreeing that the time had
arrived when something hud to he

croaie In this province, it took three
lull hours of discussion, and at times

head of the  association, would have
to step In the bread), a thing which he
tinted to do.   Manager Gray and Con
Jones agreed to Cowan's suggestion
and  things  went along merrily until
the powers of the commission were
discussed.    The Westminster delega- '
tion. while not the flrst to suggest the
appointment of a commission,   were
- olid   for   the ventuie, realizing that
the public were demanding that the '
game be clean and square, and that
the appointment of a referee when the j
teams had taken tho field, as happened
mi on occasion last season, was   Inviting disaster. On a motion by Alderman Kellington, the proposal was carried by 7 to 1, two of the Vancouver
delegate! not being present.   Another
motion, appointing a   committee    to

Great Britain bus been slower ln

on tho way now, and a great deal of
keenness ls being shown, both by oT-

the suitability of the Northern Territory for agriculture and the establishment of experiemental farms, and has
Just completed that duty. What Mr.
Campbell says is really only a repetition of former reports, with whicb
nothing" was ever done.   He states:
"Tliere Is no portion of Australia
where experiemerttal work in rural Industries is more urgently needed
than In the northern portion of tho
Northern Territory, and 1 have every
reason to believe that, as soon as;
some Important problems have been
solved ln connection with a peculiar
climate, but wonderfully regular seasons, and an assured good rainfall,
with abundance of water for all requirements (if a certain amount ofl
care be taken); when land for settlement be made available on easy
terms; and when some little encouragement is given to settlers, rural Industries will Increase more and more,
and this practically uninhabited coun-,
try will certainly become well occupied by a thriving and contented population.
"In concluding this report, I beg respectfully to add that 1 have every
reason to believe that, of the various
rural industries that may, in course of
time, be found suitable for climate
and conditions of the territory (that I
Is, for the northern portion of lt),
those which may be taken in hand Im- I
medlntely with every prospect of success, provided outlets or markets for
pioducts are available, and the work
of production be conducted intelligently, are stock raising, particularly
pigs, maize-growing, chiefly ln connection with pig-ruining, sorghum and
millet growing lucerne growing, the
breeding of mules, tobacco growing,

The minister says that only leasehold

wlll be divided Into three classes���
"pastoral," "agricultural and farming,"
and "city" lands. These divisions fn

grades, according to quality and situation. The minister said that the leases

"1 should say that 4000 or 5000 im
migrants passed through the city on
their way west last week. They are
mostly British, with some Italians
and others, and they are a pretty
good class of people. The fact that

the fact that the homes for such peo

Mr. Hoolahan added that the worn

by the Women's National Immigra-

continually   meeting   people   at   the
point of starvation masing their way
southward.      They had given  up all
nope in their northern homes, thinking    tneir only chance    ot escaping
aeath to be in going south.      Consequently it was   a frequent   Bigot   to I
meet aged women hobbling along witn
a staff in one hand.   Othei s had given ���
up and ha.l lain down by the roadside, !
wnlie the nune lortunat'e weie being;
wheeled along by son or husband. Not
ouly were the ageu men and women :
thus  trudging along,  but  little girls
! and boys, piteous to behold were try- ,
ling to keep up to fatner   or motuer |
i Knowing that  when  they  arrived  at i
1 tho first town they weie to be sou to i
jthe highest bidder.    A little girl will
I be said for 70 or 8u cents, and a prom- j
ising hoy rhight bring two dollars.
j    To travel all day meeting only this |
] class of peasants   causes   a   strange
I feeling about one's heart.      But the
I people are Aery pationt anl oul;  the
more hold and hardened beggar and
robber will   think   of  molesting   the
traveler even in these unsettled times.
Of the latter class we had but one or
two unpleasant experiences.     A man
came up to our pony almost void of
clothipg.   He caught hold of the reins
then'threw himself on the ground in
front.,of .the animal.   Had it not been
for  tlie assistance of some   soldiers
armed  with    rifles    our  experiences
might have  been more interesting.
We personally examined a number
of the most extreme cases. I say extreme cases, because whenever we
saw a donkey, pig, cow, pony, dog, or
even chicken or any sign Of grain,
straw, wool, or trees about the place,
we passed them by as not being in
immodlate distress. So the places
we did examine were desolation indeed.
People were actually endeaverint; to
live on ground up bark, mixed with
potato leaves and weeds. This was
made into a kind of fruit cake and
then eaten. Little children and even
babies were trying to eat this cake.
Others were picking the substance
out of some flower seeds. We were
glad indeed to learn that all were not
yet reduced to this extreme condition. We learned that about one hundred and twenty thousand people
were directly ahected by the famine.
Of this number at least ten per cent
will most likely starve to death before another month. By the end of
two months we believe an additional
twenty per cent will lie down and die
unless relief Is given.
