Meetings.
St. Andrew's church, New Westminster, celebrates Its Jubilee, ln the
month of March 1862, the Re.'. Robert
Jamison arrived In New Westminster,
as the first missionary of the Canada
Presbyterian church. He at once'proceeded to orgunlze a congregation anl
bulld a church. For four years Mr.
Jamison worke.l unceasingly ln the
Interests of his congregation and the
community. There was no school ln
the city, and this defect Mr. Jamison
supplied, conducting it himself until
a teacher could be supplied. For
many years there was no session, and
the board of management was chosen
from those who could be Induced to
serve. Whether lt was the patching
of a roof or the education of the children, the faithful minister was the
leader and the organizer; nothing was
too laborious to be attempted, nothing
too trivial to be attended to, if it contributed to the success of the work
he had set himself to do. After four
years Mr. Jamison was relieved by
Rev. D. Duff, and went to Nanaimo to
do over again the work of a pioneer.
After a few years he returned to the
Royal City and served not only the
city, but the lower mainland as far
east as Langley, sometimes preaching
three times a day and covering 15
miles iu a canoe. Failing health foicej
Mr. Jamison to retire in 1884. He was
succeeded in the pastorate by Rev. J.
S. McKay. The pre��ent manse was

McKay was not sirens and his health

battle of the revolution on the west
coast ls now raging at Teplc, where
2000 rebe.B, styling themselves Zapatistas, are engaged In a determined
effort to take the town. There was
heavy loss of life wben the big Teplc
cathedral, crowded with refugees, was
razed. The state house was torn
down and the residences of a number
of the wealthiest citizens were loot'eJ
and demolished.
The buttle began at 10 o'clock yesterday morning and still was In progress at C o'clock this morning. Some
of the heaviest lighting occurred in
Mexico street near the Bola de Ora-
where in a short time the pavement
became slippery with blood.
The rebels, who took this place
(Cuilcaan) on the 17th, still are In
possession and are numerously, if not
well, led. There are 20 chiefs, but
Vega is supreme.
They have made a thorough Job of
looting stores and warehouses and
now are attacking private residences.
Only two Americans are here. There
have been no trains on the Southern
Paciflc for 11 days, and although officials of the road are doing all ln their
power to rescue passengers in danger.

Regarding the arrangements which
are to be made in this connection, Mr.
C. H.-Stuart Wade supplied some interesting details. "We piopose," be
said, "if we can get the assistance of
the lumber and other Interests on the
waterfront, to have a picture taken
starting from the Fraser River mills
and coming down stream to Lulu island bridge. But. so far only one of
thc Arms concerned has intimated its
willingness to fall in with the scheme
and contribute towards the cost. This
is greatly" to be regretted as the cost
ts trivial beside the advantages to be
gained, and particularly so, as special
arrangements have been entered upon
which wlll result ln a considerable reduction being made.
"Numbers of American ��� industries
have already found moving pictures of
their plants and premises to be productive of the best results. Arrangements have already been made for
showing the films taken here on May
Day as far eastward as Toronto, and
It ta quite evident that local Industries would beneflt materially by show-
ing the sire and capacity of tbeir
plants to the public generally."
iMr. Stuart Wade also added tbat he
hopes to have the films sent on tour
tbrough all the principal towns and
cities in the British Islea. during the
next fall and winter.
"Whatever views are taken will be
shown here in the Westminster opera
house on May 10," he said, and added
that ft would be a free exhibition.
"Thus far arrangements have been
made for only 1000 teet of film to be
used," went on the commissioner. OA
this reel will be taken views of Columbia etreet from th�� C. P. R. depot

Tbe newa flashed across the continent by Jimmy Hewitt, of Vancouver, some two weeks ago, warning
the Vancouver Lacrosse club to keep
a shari* lookout on the doings of J.
K. Monro was timely and in place-
Mr. Monro arrived in Vancouver last
wee'; stating he was ln the West looking after the Interests of the Toronto
exhibition. May te he is, but the fact
remains he is not altogether out oi
the lacrosse zone. Hia latest announce'
ment is that he will sue, on behalf of
R. J. Fleming, the street railway magnate and boss of the Torontos, the
two Westminster players, Len Turn-
bull and Doey Spring/who are alleged
to have signed a Toronto contract
calling for them to play on the Island
grounds ot the Queen City ot the
Great Lakes. When Been i esterday,
Manager Gray did not appear at all
worried by this new phase of the
situation, in fact be had been anticipating such a move for aome little
tljne. Besides securing the opinion
given by a prominent lawyer of Montreal, who ia well acquainted with the
legal points ln the sporting world, the
local manager consulted a well known
barrister ot this city, who bas assured
IMr. Gray to stick by bis guna and to
ignore the request that the two players in dispute be turned over to the
Eastern club. Developments are expected within the next few days.
So Dave Gibbons j��nd Buck Marshr.ll
will be seen on the Toronto line-up
this season. Dave blew Into that city
laat week and Marshall leaves tills
morning for the Eaat. Who knows
but what tbey will be seen playing on
the coast again this coming fall. The
team that Fleming bas gathered together looks on paper to be tbe
strongest in the Big Four. The Salmon Bellies' prospects for again Utting the Minto cup never looked
brighter, so in the event of these
teams leading the rest in the two
leagues, It ls extremely probable that
the Torontos wilt attempt the capture
of tbe cup. making the Journey some
Ume In September or October. Sueh
a clash would be the sensation of the
day.. The war which is waaing between the different organisations has
not cemented any good feeling at all.

How a Slave Girl Caused the Chinese
to  Wear  Pigtails.
That the Chinese revolu ionists are
cutting their pigtails and cutting off
the heads of those who don't cut off
their pigtails we all know. But do
you know why the Chinese have
worn pigtails, and why the revolutionists are cutting off pigstails and
heads?
Like most things mundane, there's
a woman ln it. Of course, she was
beautiful. And, of course, some nun
loved her devotedly.. But jiistvy
does not record her name. And she
was a slave girl says the Chlcagj
Inter-Ocean.
It Is in 1644 that this pigtail story
begins. There had been a reb 11-n
In China, and LI, one of the claimants to the throne, ha.l forced the
suicide of his rival, Chang, ani
seized the reins of power at Pekiag.
The famous General Wu Ssnkwci
was absent from Peking at the head
of tlie imperial troop3. Tl�� fan-
eral's father v. rote hlm from Peking,
directing him to give his allegiance
to Ll. Tlie general was on his way
to the capital  to do so.
At this crisis in the history of
China Wu Sankwei got, word that
tho beautiful t.lave girl, about whom
this story revolves, had been raised
at. Pelting, and presented to ono ef
Li's olllcers.
Wu Sankwei's love for this slave
girl must tako rank with the great
loves of history. For ln his grief a:.d
rage lhe commander of tlia Imperial
forces forgot his filial obedience, hU
loyalty, his future���everything���but
the girl.
He wrote two letters. One was
lo his father, upbraiding him for nor.
protecting the gill. Tho othir wns
to Dorean, regent of Manchuria, inviting him to Join bim tn tlie subjugation of China.
The   Manchus  did   not   heritute   a
moment,  and  sent  an  uinij   to  Join
the forces of [Sankwei. Tt g the" lh y
inarched upon Peking.    Li, unable to
make  any  other  defense,  put  Sankwei's father in   the   front rank,   anl
tho aged  man  pleaded  with   hls  son1
to forbear hia hand, but Sankwei, oh- I
sessed  by til* vision of llu  outraged
girl,  allowed   his  father  lo   he   murdered before hls eyes.
|    Then ensued a wild battle, In which
i Sankwei and the Mcnchns triumphed.

GOOD ADVERTISING.
Westminster's publicity commissioner is working actively on the plan
*ot getting moving pictures taken by
Pat he Freres, the great French linn,
of the city on May Day, May 3. The
.groat obstacle in his way at present
is lack of funds. That obstacle can
only be overcome by the aid of the
ilrms to be benefited by the pictures,
and by patriotic citizens la general.
The publicity commissioner at present has funds available for lOuO feet
of film. This will onl.v allow of the
.'aking of pictures along Columbia
atreet from tho C. P. R. depot to the
Jbridge with views of the May Day profession and the crowning of the May
<3ueen. To this he is particularly
.anxious to add 2000 more feet to be

Seymour "Narrows   Dridge.
Victoria, April ^'0.���Splendid progress witli the agitation ln connection
with tlie Seymour Narrows project
was made yesterday afternoon at a
well-attended meeting of the general
committee appointed some time ago
to formulate a plan of ncticfa by
which the Dominion and Provincial
governments may be interested ln the
same. Among those present were Al I.
Cuthbert, chairman of the committee,
who presided; Aid. Dil worth, Mr. H. G.
Wilson, president of the board of
trade; Mr. C. H. Ltigrin, Mr. Wm.
Blakemoie, Mr. H. F. W. Behnsen,
M. P., Hon. Senator Macdonald and
Mr. Beaumont Boggs
Aid. Cuthbert, In presenting the
draft of a memorial and letter, which
had been prepared by a sub-committee for presentation to the federal
government, said he wished to thank
Hon. Robt. Eeaven. Hou. D. M. Ebeits,
K. C, nnd Mr. E. C. S. Scholfleld, provincial libarrian, for invaluable assist
unco ln the collection of data
Mr. Lugrln felt that the report was,
' on the whole, an admirable one, and
I suggested that it could be strengthen-
jed in several Important particulars.
Thus there could be Included some
reference to the findings of the trans-
portation commission, which had gone
into the question of rail connection
with the mainland very thoroughly
some years ago. More stress might
with advantage be laid on the geographical position of Vancouver Island,
bringing out that the distance to Asia
was less from ports on Vancouver Island than on the mainland. Then i

LOOKS GOOD FOR BALL.
Well Attended Meeting of Balmorals
���Officers Elected.
Baseball players and enthusiasts
gathered in good force last evening at
the Public Supply store, the occasion
being the annual meeting of the Balmoral Baseball club. President P. W.
Liieo was ln the chair, and gave a
h-ief outline of.the work done so far
by the, committee appointed to wait
sjitonthe city council.
The .officers elected for the coming
years were as follows: Honorary
president, Mr. Peter Peebles; honorary vice-president, Mr. James Anderson; president, Dr. C. Doherty; vice-
president, Mr. W. Maiden; secretary,
Mr. E. Ball; manager, Mr. Ralph

nary steamer from New York to the
scene of the games? No sires, Nothing less than a special steamer, I.e.,
the entire saloon quarters of a steamer.
With nothing to hinder them, the
sons of Uncle Sam will have more
than a week on shipboard, breathing
in the bracing sea air, and having
ample space to complete their training. Their old stars, Meivin Sheppard, Mat iMcGrath, Flannlgan and
others are pretty sure to make the
team, and from their work during the
past winter, will make the other countries hustle for places.
A new feature at this year's events
will be a "seeding" of the stars in
the running races from 100 to 1500
metres. Heretofore, especially at the
last Olympaid in London, It waa
found, wben the draw for places was
made, the top notchers came together
ln the heats, thus spoiling the
chances of a good race in the final.
When the games wer held in Athens
ln in,ni, James E. Sullivan, -who was
then the American commissioner, suggested to "seed" the draw of the
sprinti at the first meeting of the
intei national jury and there was all
forts of surprise on the part of the
Huropeans. The Englishmen and the
Swedes were tho only ones who took
kindly 10 the now idea, but lt was lost
-on the vote. Anyway the new scheme
should be worth giving a trial and
the Swedes have congratulations co��n*
Ing to tliem for proposing such a
move.
The soccer championship of the
city is to be decided this ufternoon.
The teams of the Senior Amateurs
and tho Rovers will battle for supremacy on the Moody Square
grounds and If talk Is any crl^rlon,
It should be the best encounter this
city has seen for a long time In the

tlieir strongest elevens and when the
final whlstl�� is blown, it ls to be
hoped that the losing side will admit
the better team won. No game has
over been staged in this city for
many years which is creating such interest and it is a safe guess that a
record crowd will be present at the
kick-off at three o'clock. Juet a word
to tliose who Intend seeing the game.
Under the rules of the Amateur association, no gate money can be taken
to defray the expenses of the teams.
Therefore an invitation has been extended to and accepted by the Royal

Communications have already been

From the discussion tbat followed the
election, the great American game Is
by no. means dead in tbls city, and
the prospects of many thrilling games
look bright indeed. The Balmorals are
intent on again winning the cup, and
Manager Smith will'have some dlffi-

EXPERT THINKS GIAfIT
LINERS   ARE
SAFEST.
New York, April 2.1. -All the hue
and cry to the ett'ect that the building
ot great ships of the Titanic, Olympic,
Mauretanla, and even the larger boats
now building by tne German lines, ha��
DOen proved Impracticable by the
catastrophe ot tho titanic, was attacked by Lewis Nixon lu an Interview with a representative of the Tribune yesterday.
'You can put It down as a maxim,"
said Mr. Nixon, "that you can insure
more safety, comfort, sti eng th, stability and general efficiency, not to
mention luxury, into the larger ships
than could possibly be embodied in
smaller types,"
Mr. Nixon, wbo designed, among
other famous craft, the battleship Oregon, and is, perhaps, as high an authority on matters of naval architecture as there Ib ln this country, then
gave hls views on the causes that sent
the Titanic to the bottom.
"It ls conceivable that ln developing
Mr Nixon, "to tell exactly why the
Titanic sunk so quickly. The bulk of
the Titanic to tbe ordinary mind ls
enormous. The mass of the Iceberg
struck waB undoubtedly many times
greater. Almost any speed with which
the vessel might strike a rock or such
nn iceberg would do enormous, harm.
"The bulkheads, of course, were
closed immediately upon impact. The
forward, bulkheads, would probably
havo lib door lh them, anyway.
"It Is conceivable that Indeveloping
the longltudlnoas strength ot a boat of
such great dimensions as the Titanic
the longitudinal girders might be of
such great strength+ahd rigidity that,
instead of buckling forward as on any
ordinary ship, when Bhe crashed into
the berg, they might deliver a thrust

The Aldermen of New Westminster
City have floundered In their efforts
to dodge Calendar inflicted difficulties
whilst rightly aiming to pay Civic
Employees twice per month.
Their notice in the Mayor's absence states that "payment will bs
made on the 6th and 20th of each
month,���except when either of these
dates falls on a Saturday, when payment will be made on the day prev-
"lous." They do not prescribe for payment day's when those dates happen
to be Sunday, and they overlook the
fact that the 20th alwayB falls on the
same week-day as the Gth.
That notice literally implies paydays on Sundays falling on the 6th
and 20th., until they amend the notification hy prescribing payment on
either the preceding Friday or following Monday.
Some employees thinking I might
be able to overcome their Calendar
created- tilffleultles; aBked when they
should get their money.
i replied Umt they ought to have
it every alternate Thursday evening
throughout the year, so that tlieir
women-folk could regularly purchase
fresh produce for cash during Friday's
market. That would be far more convenient to all concerned.
But the civic notice muddles up
absurd Intervals of 13, 17, 14, 16, 14,
15, 18, etc., days between successive
pay-days, whereas all should be eftual,
instead of allowing three Saturdays on
April 20, 27 and May 4th, to intrude
between the last pay-day, April 19th,
and the next on May 6th.
That inflicts hardships upon poor
families who have to buy weekly
food supplies and people renting
rooma. etc., for which weekly payments have to be made. Surely Alderman Dodd should have protested
against that needless infliction, when
it also disturbs the regular weekly
routine of City Hall work.
It is very easy to provide every two
weeks for even the salaried staff lf desired, as one-twenty-sixth of the
yearly salary paid to the nearest 5
cents with the final adjustment on the
last pay-day for the odd-day at the
year-end only requires one simple calculation for each rate of salary.
The Aldermen are not much to
blame for those inequalities easily
remediable by payments every 2nd.
week,���though they hurriedly legislated that notice without sufficient
consideration, and so tripped upon one
of tho many incessantly recurring Calendar defects by which workers and
all people are needlessly almost unconsciously Inconvenienced every day.
Tho cause of those absurd Irregularities ranging 6 days between the
13 and 18 day Intervals, anl the foolish changing of day names for dates
In each of our confusing unequal
months was, that our remote ancestors counted months by phases of the
moon. Quarter-moons of 7, 8, 7, 8,
7, 7, 8, 7, 7, 8 days, (to the nearest
day), and when business necessity led
them to decide upon fixing the 7 constant, week-day names for our weeks,
they neglected to extend that most
useful reform to the month which
should ln sequence be exactly 4 weeks,
IS of which would with Christmas

The International Olympic Games,
which will be held at Stockholm. Sweden, this coming summer, will undoubtedly draw a greater number of
athletes from al) over the world, than
ever before. Countries like Japan,
Sweden, Russia and others, are preparing to place strong teams In the
Held, while the older countries
iu the realms of Bport will send
their cracks, to battle fcr world's
championship honors. In the games
that took plaee at the Crystal Palace,
London, four years ago, America had
a walkover in most of the events,
taking fifteen firsts, England coming
a bud second with., eight. As
ls usual, the ,-Erlglfth authorities aro just awakening from their
lethargy and are preparing for the
eliminating trials, thus glvm-; the successful ones very little time for training, Then again the athletes from
Great Britain are always handicapped
for lack of funds compared with the
V. S. men. That country has got the
financial part of the programme down
to a flne art. Will they take an ordinary steamer from New York to the
scene of the games? No slree, Nothing less than a special steamer, i.e.,
the entire saloon quarters of a steamer.
With nothing to hinder them, tho
sons of Uncle Sam will have moro
than a week on shipboard, breathing
in the bracing sea air, and having
ample space to complete their training. Their old stars, Meivin Sheppard, Mat iMcGrath, Flannigan and
others are pretty sure to make the
team, and from their work during the
past winter, will make the other countries hustle for places.

A new feature at this year's events
will be a "seeding" of the stars in
the running races from 100 to 1500
metres. Heretofore, especially at the
last Olympaid ln London, it was
found, when the draw for places was
made, the top notchers came together
in the heats, thus spoiling the
chances of a good race in the final.
When the rames wer held in Athens
in lHUtl, James E. Sullivan, who was
then the American commissioner, suggested to "seed" the draw of the
sprints at the llrst meeting of the
inte,national jury and there was nil
sorts of surprise on the part of the
Europeans. The Englishmen and the
Swedes were the only ones who took
kindly to the new idea, but it was lost
on the vote. Anyway the new scheme
.should be worth giving a trial and
the Swedes have congratulations coming to tliem for proposing such a
move.
The soccer championship of the
city Is to be decided this afternoon.
The teams of the Senior Amateurs
and the Hovers will battle for supremacy on the Moody Square
grounds and If talk ls any criterion,
it should be the best encounter this
city has seen for a long time in the
soccer world. Both teams will fleld
tlieir strongest elevens and when tne
final whietle Is blown, It is to be
lio;ed that the losing side will admit
the better team won. No game has
ever been staged in this city for
many years which is creating such interest and it is a safe guess that a
record crowd will be present at the
kick-off at three o'clock. Just a word
to tliOEe .who intend seeing the game.
Under the rules of the Amateur association, no gate money can be taken
to defray the expenees of the teams.
Therefore an invitation has been extended to and accepted by the Royal
Columbian Hospital to pass around
the collection box during the game.
This Is no hold-up affair as anyone
can please themselves whether they

LOOKS GOOD FOR BALL.
Well Attended Meeting of Balmorals
���Officers Elected.
Baseball players and enthusiasts
gathered ln good force last evening at
the Publlc Supply store, the occasion
being the annual meeting of tbe Balmoral Baseball club. President P. W.
I..ico was in the chair, and gave a
h-ief outline of the work done so far
by the committee appointed to wait
*pjon-the city council,.
Tiie .officers elected for the coining
years were as follows: Honorary
president, Mr. Peter Peebles; honorary vice-president, Mr. James Anderson; president, Dr. C. Doherty; vice-
president, Mr. W. Maiden; secretary,
Mr. E. Ball; manager, Mr. Ralph
Smith. The executive committee consists of Messrs. C. Stein, P. W. Luce,
W. E. Sinclair, H. Ryall, A. T. Reeves
and V. E. Andrew. Representatives
of the club at the annual meeting of
the association will be Messrs. H.
Ryall and W. E. Sinclair.
Communications have already been
received from the Coquitlam and (Mill-
side clubs asking for games, the secretary being asked to reply to same.
From the discussion that followed the
election, the great American game ls
by no. means dead ln this city, and
the prospects of many thrilling games
look bright Indeed. The Balmorals are
intent on again winning the cup, and
Manager Smith will'have some diffi-
nlty ln picking a team from the
numerous candidates that have announced their intention of playing the
;ame this tiring summer. The annual meet'ng of the association will
likely be held some time next week.
EXPERT THINKS GIANT
LINERS   ARE   SAFEST.
New York, April 2f,. -All the hue
and cry to the erfect that the butidiag
of great ships of tbe Titanic, Olympic,
Mauretania, and even the larger hoats
now building by the German lines, has
ocen proved impracticable by the
catastrophe of tho 'litantc, was attacked by Lewis .Nixon lu an interview with a representative of the Tribune yesterday.
'You can put lt down as a maxim,"
said Mr. Nixon, "that you can insure
more safety, comfort, sti eng th, stability and general efficiency, not to
mention luxury, Into the larger ships
than could posBlbly be embodied in
smaller types."
Mr. Nixon, who designed, among
other famous craft, the battleship Oregon, and is, perhaps, as high an authority on matters of naval architecture as there Is in this country, then
gave his views on the causes that sent
the Titanic to the bottom.
"It is conceivable that in developing
Mr Nixon, "to tell exactly why the
Titanic sunk so quickly. The bulk of
the Titanic to the ordinary mind is
enormous. The mass of the Iceberg
struck was undoubtedly many times
greater. Almost any speed with which
the vessel might strike a rock or such
an iceberg would do enormous harm.
"The bulkheads, of course, were
closed immediately ttpton. Impact. The
forward bulkheads, would probably
have ��b door In'them, anyway.
"It. Is conceivable that indeveloplng
the longitudlnous strength of a boat of
such great dimensions as the Titanic
the longitudinal girders might be of
such great strength-and rigidity that,
instead of buckling forward as on any
ordinary shin, when she crashed Into
the berg, they might deliver a thrust
backward to several other transverse

WESTMINSTERS CALENDAR JOLT.
Editor, Westminster Daily News:
The Aldermen of New Westminster
City have floundered in their efforts
to dodge Calendar Inflicted difficulties
whilst rightly aiming to pay Civic
Employees twice per month.
Their notice in the Mayor's absence states that "payment will be
made on the 6th and 20th of each
month,���except when either of these
dates falls on a Saturday, when payment will be made on the day previous." They do not prescribe for payment days when those date's happen
to be Sunday, and they overlook the
fact that the 20th always falls on the
same week-day as the Gth.
That notice llterftlly implies paydays on Sundays falling on tive 6th
and 20th., until they amend the notification by prescribing payment on
either the preceding Friday or following Monday.
Some employees' thinking I might
be able to overcome their Calendar
created difficulties; aBked when they
should get their money.
J replied t*��t they ought to have
It every alternate Thursday evening
throughout tbe year, so that thoir
women-folk could regularly purchase
fresli produce for casb during Friday's
market. That would be far more convenient to all concerned.
But the civic notice muddles up
absurd Intervals of 13, 17, 14, 16, 14,
15, 18, etc., days between successive
pay-days, whereas all should be ecmal,
instead of allowing three Saturdays on
Aprll 20, 27 and May 4th, to Intrude
between the last pay-day, April 19th,
and the next on May 6th.
That inflicts hardships upon poor
families who have to buy weekly-
food supplies and people renting
rooms, etc., for which weekly payments have to be made. Surely Alderman Dodd should have protested
against that needless Infliction, when
it also disturbs the regular weekly
routine of City Hall work.
It is very easy to provide every two
weeks for even the salaried staff lf desired, as one-twenty-sixth of the
yearly salary paid to the nearest 6
cents with tbe final adjustment on the
last pay-day for the odd-day at the
year-end only requires one simple calculation for each rate of salary.
The Aldermen are not much to
blame for those inequalities easily
remediable by payments every 2nd.
week,���though they hurriedly legislated that notice without sufficient
consideration, and so tripped upon one
of the many incessantly recurring Calendar defects by which workers and
all people are needlessly almost unconsciously inconvenienced every day.
The cause of those absurd irregularities ranging 6 days between the
13 and 18 dny Intervals, and the foolish, changing of day names for dates
ln each of our confusing unequal
months was, that our remote ancestors counted months by phases of the
moon. Quarter-moons of 7, 8. 7, 8,
7, 7, 8, 7, 7, 8 days, (to the nearest
day), and when business necessity led
them to decide uponv fixing the 7 constant week-day names for our weeks,
they neglected to extend that most
useful reform to the month which
should in sequence be exactly 4 weeks,
13 of which would with Christmas
Day complete the year as is now being advocated ln all the leading countries of the world.
Then not only pay-days everv 14
days, but also every 7 days, -will be

have any conception, will result to
every civilised rerson.

Panama Canal  Workers Thinking  of
Horns Agaic.
"Lord, but won't fresh ap; le pic and
Cod's country oiicr taste good ?" sail
one Panama Canal worker, whom tho
lack-home New England magnet wus
pidlihK hard. And his littlo wife,
who had stood two tropical wet seasons, chimed In with a word or two
about the down East crullers slie
cojU make, onco she hud the chance.
"They don't seem to taste ri>iht
down here," she added. She herself
loolted far fiom "light." They had
foregone their six weeks' vacation
privilege last year; the vacation trip
money went to tho school up North,
where ono little pirl waa reaping the
beneats of snow-balling and an excellent Amei lean education.
tjnc.e &aiu has (tone moie for his
ietnuiian construction army than perhaps any oilier great employer over
attempted. Of course, it all has beeu
a matter ot business, for In tho old
days, when Panama retained Its iepu-
tat ion as a peat hole, it was necessary
to oner Inducements to get men. And
even today, when the isthmus ia re-
gar, m.t us almost a heilth leaort,
nfeaily hair the office lorces chango
in i nd co ares oi a year,
Pay is fiom -u to lOO ;cr cuit.
hUi>i-.r t..a:i ror Miauar wo.a In tno
North, and, 111 uddiii-n to uns iuii.ni-
me.ii..I uiicj;:ruie.iiiii the tnen oi ihe
job receive many other aids which
go toward making llie us livable a.s
life can be maJe nine de'giees from
home. Amonj tiieje in..., be numbered an cnniml six weeks' vacation,
with | ay, Iree hospital attention, the
irl.lie. es of the commissary, low
plicts, iree (|it:t.lars and llgiit, nnd a
host of othei' paternal attentions thai
ir.ii^,e lrom go-,elementally supported
club homes to minor matters, like
band conceits,
XetjtSero Is complaint, it It not of
iwtelving too Ktlle, but of having too
m;ich done for them, that makes the
growlers growl. .They gro.vi good-
naturedly, almost whimsie.ally, but yet,
tlie> growl.
"I've been here three years and I
feel like champagne that's stood uncorked in Uie sun���no snap left," said
a man who had a brain nud a good
record.
"N'o. I don't mean physically," he
continued, "It's not climatic effect.
That can't be helped, and. so far as
���that goes, I believe a careful-man can
lt'f;i in as tool trim .here as anywhere, it's the mental inertia. I'm
n spoite.1 haby, an ' .I've lost thc power
to.think for myself."
Then   he  enlarged   somewhat,   and
did it very    soberly nnd reasonably,
too.
Lo was giieved beca'uee he was left
to do Utile for himself. The "benevolent desiotisra" even did his thinking for hlm, was thc way he put it,
bb he recited the enervation of ha vln.:
no occupation beyond his i online wor..
ami no lcsponsiuiiuj. His most f.er-
sstent complaint was. that lie couiu
not NOie. more is no i(t^iumse on
'the Zone and no.lung io"* i.e do:u
wuh  u if  uere   was.
"do j ou wee Interested In politics
at home, mil Luppbse you uiways
voted'.'"
No, hc had never voted, except once,
for alutruruu, when ms partner ran
lor tha place, llut then -it ls healthy
to have tno ree^onsioliltiea ot cm-
eenshlp, even lf they ate alloweti to
grow  moth-eaten  and  uusty.
"Tho oig awakening ls cm ng when
we go back homo," was hia prediction
when the subject of "alleiwnrd" came
up. "its going to hc if lot harder oa
many of as than wc suppose."
I To show what he meant he explained that all his friends were getting
better salaries on the isthmus than
ever befoie. Inevitably they would
' find poorer paid berths alter tho ca
mil work ceased. And In tne mean
tlmo they nnd tlieir wives had at
(iuired extravagance habits; "aad Id
su much harder to to bacKwarj lhaii
I lorward In tho spending game,' i.e
wound up.
Of coarse, all of the 35,000 man who
work under the I, 0, C. won t leave,
i chaps 1,000 of UlJ piesent 0,00ti
American force will remain. Roughly
speaking, ihe Panama ruili0..d, and fu-
tttrS construction and maintenance
norit may keen lO.utKi of the .'Ui.tiuu
laborers of touay. The oiher 20,000
will scatter to lhe four winds.
Most of these 1:0,000 aie Jamaicans.
Doubtless tliey will he repatl 1 jte.l, for
to return them to their native is.and
seems the only possib:e course. Aiu
that will be the hardest kind of hard
luck, both lor the negroes and lor Jamaica. On Ihe Isthmus they have received tho hivhest wages of t'.'.elr history and llveu under the best social
conditions. It is a common remark
along the line that a Jamaican improves BO per cent, after he has been
on the zone th ee months, and has benefited by decent foo.t and a 11 tie training. So the cont:ast will be all the
harder, lor when they go back they
will find tlieir native labor markets
glutted, und the dread o!d supply and
demand law will force them to arcept
starvation pay.
A few thousand may be ad 'ei to the
army of hangers an at Panama ami
Colon, making those ritles less agreeable than they are today. Perhaps a
few of the best will become Panamt-
ian land cultivators���if Panama  will

All in all, the probable fate of the

The Tragic Stoiy of ths Penal Colonic; oi Australasia.
Tbo position wliich the Australian
colonies are gaining in the world,
particularly since tlieir federation on
the Canadian plan has ntlraeted the
Attention of the world to tliem and
recalled the singular and striking fact
that grsat penal colonies, where at
one time disorder and crime prevailed,
have become or erly and strictly self-
governing communities.
The Story of llio penal settlements
of Australia and Tasmania and tho
carnival of cruelty and of crime that
attended the convict system is most
reninrkuble in the light of subsequent
events. The crimes for which convicts were sent from Kngland to Hot-
any Uay and Van Diemens Land were
in great part abominable, and the expiation was certainly tenlble.
The convicts were put at work in
the broiling Australian sun, Often
they worked in chains, and the chains
were not counted as diminishing their
capacity Ior hard labor. Kven the
best conducted of them were let out to
farmers and the proprietors of sheep
ranges. If these farmers happened to
be humane, the convict might be reasonably happy. Hut in many cases
the farmer regarded liis convict helper as a sluve, as, indeed, lie was, and
a beast of burden, to be used as cruelly as possible.
The result was that as many of the
convicts as could do so escaped to the
woods and became "bushrangers" or
bandits. They preyed on tlie natives
and on the settlers committing robberies that were not infrequently attended  with murder.
In Tasmania such ravages were
particularly alarming. The malefactors were under the leadership of one
Mike Howe, a liighwr.yman who had
been sent from Kngland to the colony
on a 1 >ng sentence and had escaped to
tho  bush.
They became such a terror to the
peaceful settlers that ivhsn Mike Howe
proposed a peace, in which lie was to
be "treated as a gentleman," they
were very glad to make the arrangement. IJut the Governor-General oi
Sydney refused to give his sanction
to the pact, end Howe took to the
bmh again. He was pursued by
troops, and in a dreadful hand-to-
hand conflict, was overcome and be-
lieadei by a gigantic soldier known ai
"I5ig Bill."
Howe's followers continued the war
relentlessly, but at last there came a
change. The convicts tired nf bush-
ranging, and little by little settled
down to good conduct. The system of
psnal settlements was abolished. No
more convicts came out from England,
and the people of the colonies agreed
to forget the origin of those who were
already there.
Some of the convicts became tlie
most industrious farmers and the
most thrifty and law-abiding mer-
chant< in the country. Their children
gave the lie to the law of heredity
by becoming veritable gentlemen.
Then it was that tho people of the
former colonies performed a surprising art of grace and confidence by
decreeing the destruction of all the
records of convict^ batyishnient and
all'the sentences and orders applying
| to  the  members  ot the convict com- /

The British "Nut."
The r.ewly-developed British dandy
is called a "nut" and has taken tho
place oi the "behoy." He ia a cockney and ii found in Ireland is an es-
trayed specimen. The "nut" is the
ultima Thule of thc bless in life. He
13 worn out with pleasure. The business of the "nut" Is with external?.
He has no secret doubts as to his own
perfections and is never troubled by
the sense of humor that helps one to
see his own absurdity. The "nut" is
lonelier than a hermit in his cell.
Even when two "nuts" sally forth together they are both alone. London
Opinion notes' ihat the "nut"���recognized only as the third person, singular pronoun of the neuter gender-
has a nice sense in lrrdkcrrhicfy
socks, t'6s, p'ins, waistcoats, ca..es a.u
gold cigarette holders. A "nut" only
ceases to be a "tfut" when it sees
itself as others see it. It then takes
a less solemn view of life and in many
cases finds relaxation in wcrk.
, A Durbnr DramS.
A curious example of -the drama4

India in the shape of a play about

introduction, so we learn from thc
"Times of India,'" as "the first attempt by a pirrely orthodox Pundit to
dramatize in s 8anskrit" the D^urbar
which here, as in- many other Indian
writings, is wrongly described as a
coronation. The subject is admitted \ as usual,
to be "too grand to form the plot o'
a small drama like this."   The list

An elderly woman was entering a
compartment of a train at Johnston'
(Pembrokeshire) when one of a number of men in the compartment said:
"This is a 'smoker'." The old woman, however, took her seat, saying:,
"I am a smoker myself." Sbe explained that she had smoked for 15
years, and acquired the habit when
she was in a hospital, a doctor having advised her tliat the only cure for
her complaint wad tb smoke. "I
would rather go to bed without my
supper than without my smoke," she
added. As soon as the train had left
the station she took out pipe and
tobacco and smoked with evident en-
joymont.

Below will be found a completo list
of the Koyal lino of Westminster's
May Queens. Many of them are still
living in the 'dty, some have gone

Of Mrs. Brown (Marina Horey) it
is of Interest to note that the parents
cas)6 put to this city on the "Thames
City," the vessel which conveyed part
of the Royal engineers hither, ln the
early days when the interior of Hi itlsli
Columbia drew. many gold seekers
from all over the world. She was
born when the boat touched at the
Falkland Islands, and was therefore
called Marina, derived from the Latin
word "mare," the sea. Glancing down
tbe list there may be found many
other Marys, and derivatives of thut
name which likewise trace their origin
to the same root. This is as lt should
be, for the sea ls Intimately connected
with the people of Westminster and of
tlie races from which they spring.
Mrs. R. B. Kelly is a daughter of
the celebrated "Colonel" J. T. Scott,
whose name ls a household word ln
this city. From the Institution of May
Day in 1870, his merry smile and
genial manner endeared the "laird of
Port Moody" to two generations of
Westminster children May Day, 1907,
