Ambassadors in London and in Constantinople Using
Their Influence in Effort to Persuade Turkey to Make
Fresh Concessions to Balkan Allies���Not Much Fear of
Mussulman Uprising���Will Probably Cede Adrianople.
London, Jan. 6.���Danger of a rup-, slty of Turkey meeting the terms of
tore tomorrow of peace negotiations j the allies particularly with respect to
seems to have been averted by tlie
probability that . Turkey will make
fresh concessions wblch will give the
allies a holiday during the festivities
la connection.wltb the Cbrlstmaa celebration of the Greek Catholic church.
From authoritative sources. It is
said the powers, through their ambassadors here and at Constantinople
have exerted strong pressure at Constantinople for moderation, while the
Balkan representatives have been
urged to be patient before breaking
oft negotiations, especially as they
can lose nothing by waiting, tbelr position being stronger than that of the
The efforts of the powers appear to
hsve been successful on both sides.
Thus, unless some sudden change develops st the last moment, Rechad
Pasha will present on Monday, new
terms, which will comprise another
rectification of the Thraccan frontier,
bringing It farther out, perhaps to
Dedagatch, but not Including Adrlanople, and probably the cession of
Turkey's rights In Crete directly to
the allies.
After representations had been
made to them, Mr. Danoff, premier
Venlzelee. M. Movakovltch and M. Mi
yuskovltrh met today and decided to
Adrianople.    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The powers continue   to   exercise
pressure at Constantinople, aiming to
demonstrate to tbe Porte that reals-
tence only would lead to graver losses.
Cede Adrlanople.
The Impression Is that Turkey will
end by ceding Adrlanople and that tbls
will be done without serious results,
such as are predicted by Turkish sympathizers or threatened by Constants
nople. Whenever Turkey is about to
suffer territorial amputation the
spectre of Mussulman fanaticism Is
raised and assistance Is Bought from
Great Britain and France, whieh have
ln their dominions millions of Mussul-
men, pictured as ready to rise ln sympathy.
The Tdrklsh empire, however, gradually has been dismembered, without the Mussulman dragon ever awakening either at home or abroad, and
experts In Turkish affairs Interpret
this to mean that the Musulmen are
convinced they fare better under their
present rulers.
Advancement has been made by
Kussla and France in their efforts to
Induce Italy to use lu r good offices at
Vienna with, the object of turning over
Scutari to Montenegro Instead of in-
give Turkey a further period of grace. | eluding that town  in Albania.    It is
taking the ground that the submission
of new teams will be proof of a disposition on tbe part of Turkey to
reach a satisfactory solution. They
propose to submit the new terms to
tbelr governments for study, and will
suggest an adjournment of the conference probably to Friday, the third
day after their Christmas, at the same
time emphasizing the absolute neces-
believed that Italy, as the ally of
Austria, and, also because of relationship between the Savoy and Montenegrin royal families, may succeed in
accomplishing this, while If the same
proposition were urged by the administrations at Paris and St. Potersburg.

Hague Tribunal Is Not a
Fitting Place for Discussion.
Leave Settlement of Panama Dispute
to Board  Made up of Englishmen and Americans.
Washington, Jan. 5.���President "Taft
is willing to submit to arbitration tbe
issues between Great Britain and the
United States over the Panama canal
tolls, but do.es not favor such procedure by The Hague tribunal. This became known here tonight upon the
president's return from New York. Although he has not given the matter
of a tribunal much thought, the president probably would prefer a special
board of arbitration composed of an
equal number of citizens of the United
States and Great Britain.
The president has expressed to his
friends the view that at The Hague
all Europe would be against this nation and that the moral pressure on
the commerce would be enormous bc>
cause Europe ts Interested in Panama
In a court In wblch only Great Britain
and the United States were represented, It Is argued, there would be a
much greater chance of a fair subscription. Several Democratic senators
have voiced tho opinion that a special
tribunal should bo created to arbitrate
ihis diepute.

t It is with great pleasure that we see that those responsible for the government of Burnaby have declared themselves in favor of a single controlling body for the Fraser
river, North Arm and South Arm alike. This view of the
situation was advocated recently in these columns and
we feel that it is only by such a broad and comprehensive
policy that the best ends of the future port can be served.
The history of the ports of the world has proved one
thing very clearly, and that is the importance of one port
authority, controlling the whole waterway concerned and
the land adjacent thereto. Only under single administrations have the best results ever been obtained.
At the present time still other considerations emphasize the importance of unity of action by all the municipalities fronting on either arm of the lower Fraser river.
These considerations are political in so far as they affect
the passage of a Harbor Commission bill through the
House of Commons. At present the government is puzzled
by the appearance on the scene of two bills, one for the
whole lower Fraser river, put forward by New Westminster, and another for the North Arm only, presented by
the municipalities of Burnaby, Richmond, South Vancouver and Point Grey. This duplication has delayed action.
In the case, however, of these two bills being merged together it is more than probable that the cabinet would
accept the one bill as a government measure and put it
through without any of the expenses incurred by a private bill.
We are glad to say that already it seems more than
probable that all difficulties will be quickly swept away.
At a joint luncheon of the Burnaby and Westminster councils, Reeve Weart and Councillor McGregor have both declared themselves against supporting any partial bill that
will affect adversely the passage of the New Westminster
Harbor Commission Bill. It is also understood that other
citizens of Burnaby prominent in the arena of municipal
politics hold the same view.
As far as Richmond is concerned her interests are clearly to be seen. She is equally interested on both arms of
the river and it would suit her far better to have both
under one central control than be forced to deal with an
independent body for each.
The position ot South Vancouver and Point Grey is
���not radically different. These two important municipalities cannot share in any Vancouver harbor development.
For them it is the North Arm or nothing. But the greatest factor in the development of the North Arm will be
the creation of a deep sea port on the South Arm. It will
be from the existence of this that a very great part of the
future business of the North Arm will come.
The latest harbor announcement relating to government action on this coast, is that the Dominion government has decided to spend $500,000 in building wharves on
Burrard Inlet. This is further proof that at Ottawa
they are fully alive to the needs of the Pacific coast and
in view of the expressed opinion of the department of
Public Works that the Fraser river offers greater advantages than either Vancouver or Victoria for develomnent
as a national port, it is high time that any small differences were sunk in an united attempt to secure the active
creation at once and the efficient administration for ever
of the port of the Fraser river.
With this end in view immediate steps should be taken
for cordial common action by all concerned in support of
one bill for one port of the Fraser river.

Few Pilgrims Visit Holy Land for Today's Religious Feast.
Owing lo the absence of pilgrims,
today's great festivals will pass almost unobserved In the Holy Land,
and a few priests, trembling for their
lives because cf Moslem hatred, will
go through the ceremonies which ln
former years attracted thousands of
Christians from the ends of the earth.
For Roman Catholics and Prostestants
today is Epiphany, and thiB festival
of the baptism of Jesus is customarily observed by thousands of pilgrims,
who gather on the banks of the Jor-
don, clad ln death shrouds, to commemorate the baptism of Christ by
St. John. For the Russians, Bulgarians, Greeks and other adherents of
tho Eastern Church, tonight will be
Christmas Eve, but there will be no
thirty or forty thousands cf pilgrims
at Bethlehem to celebrate the Nativity. The war in the near east is re
sponsible for the absence of the faithful. The Holy Land of the Christians
remains in the grasp of the Turks,
and the Moslems have no love for
giaours at this time.
Last year some fourteen thousand
Russians made the pilgrimage to Jerusalem to celebrate their Christmas,
which falls on January 7, new style,
and there were more than as many
Bulgarians, Armenians, Montenegrins
and Greeks. Today, it is likely, the
hostels and monasteries built by the
Russians in the Holy I-and are empty
of guests. The sacred edifices snd
shrines���where Turkish soldiers wear
ing cynical smiles at the follies of the
"infidels" were wont to keep order
among the warring Christians-
will have few worshipers today. In
the past the Moslems have welcomed
the annual invasion, as a source of
profit, and the frequent fights between different varieties of Christians
have been 'to them a source of great
amusement. This year Russia has refused to Issue rassjorts to pilgrims
to the Holy Lard, and the men of the
Balkan States lave been loo busy to
think  about  reUgiOUS pilgrimages.
The greatest sufferers from this
-trite of affairs will be the Jewish
merchants ef the Holy Land. The
Moslems will hear their flnincial loss-
with equanimity. The Hebrews, ac-
customed to profit f'-om both Moslem?
and Christians, will wail and groan
and call down curses upon both
houses. The Jew is cast for the role
of innocent bystander. Also ther?
will be lamentation among the hosts

A "prisoner of war" has his rights.
He may be asked to give his parole

An unparoled prisoner may also be

A prisoner may be compelled to
earn his "keep" by working at hi

for his captors not ot a purely mill

If thus tempted, a man may pretend to turn traitor and deceive the
enemy with false information. On the
other hand voluntarily to go over to
tho enemy, pretending to be a traitor
or deserter, would be dishonorable
conduct, that is, if the pretended traitor is an officer or a soldier.
A tpy, of course, has no rights, and
is at all times liable to be shot or
hanged at sight. An officer or soldier
caught in tho enemy's camp, must not
be treated as a spy, but as a prisoner
of war, provided he is not disguised.
If a commander takes part In a
charge, or persistently exposes himself to fire, he must take his chances
of being shot: but ln big affairs, it
is not the "game" to detail marksmen to "pick off" your opponent's
general, though every effort may be
made to enpi ire him.
When a city or town is bombarded
public buildings, unless used for defensive purposes, should be spared bo

a  vandal.

| The Mystery of j
Mark Island \
A   TRUE   STORY   {
Vancouver, Jan. 5.���Great regret Is
felt ln both shipping and commercial
circles at the departure of Mr. J. G.
Qow, the New Zealand trade commissioner of Canada, who owing to tbe
change of government ln New Zealand, has been recalled.
Mr. Gow has been trade commissioner for about twelv* years, representing the Agricultural and Trades de-
partmeuU of the New Zealand government in  various parts of the world.
At the tlmo Mr. Gow first arrived
Gow was stationed ln South Africa,
and wa* the means of establishing
large trade, connections between South
Africa and New Zealand, a few years
later Mr. Gow was transferred to the
Pacific coast of Canada and for the
past two years bus been ln Vancouver.
At tho time Mr. Gow flrstarrlved
In Vancouver the trade between the
city and Nuw Zealand was practically
nil, . but owing to his energy and
ability, ho has been able to work a
targe amount of trade with tbat part
of the dominions, for example, at the
time Mr. Gow came into office here,
the amount of butter Imported was
0000 boxes, while ln 1912 about 52,-
000 boxes wore Imported, and the
ordera for 1913 exceed 100,000 boxes.
all of which Is due to Mr. Gow's efforts. A large development in preserves and canned goods has been
enade, both ways, between Canada and
New Zealand. During recent years
raw hides have been Imported In
large quantities for reshlpment to
Eastern markets.
Mr. Gow during his stay ln Vancouver has been a very hard worker and
popular official, aud his departure at
this time Ib very much felt by shippers, wholesalers and Importers.
Mr. flow leaves for hlB home In
Scotland this evening, and after a
few weeks' holiday, will return to New
Zealand. At present no one has been
appointed to Mr. Oow'a place.
Athens, Jan. 5.���An official co'n
muicatloii issued by the ministry ot
marine thus describes the engagement
between Greek and Turkish warships
off the Dardanelles this morning.
"Greek destroyers cruising off thi
straits announced at 7.50 o'clock thi:
morning that two Turkish cruiser*
followed by six destroyers, had been
sighted at the entrance of the Dardanelles. The whole Greek squadron immediately weighed anchor aad
steamed to meet the enemy.
"At 10.25 a. m. the Turkish Medjl-
dlth detached Itself frcm the other
vessels wblch remained under the
shelter ot the forts of Sodil Dehr, and
proceeded west of Tcnedos. The Med-
jldieh fired six or seven shells at two
Creek destroyers cruising there, and
tho latter replied. The enemy, how-
aver, drew off Into the straits immediately they perceived the other
Greek  destroyers  coming  up.
"At 11.25 the MedJIdieh and th<
Ifamidleh separated from the squad
ron which remained at the cntranci
to the Btraits, and advanced west toward Tcnedos, whore for half an hour
they exchanged idiots with the Greek
destroyers. The Turkish cruisers
were followed to a certain point by
their destroyers.
"The fight ended by the flight of
tbe enemy's warships luto the straits
'lamedlately they observed the whole
Greek fleet appear on the horizon.
Battle Now Rage*.
Constantinople, Jan. 5.���The Turkish fleet left the Dardanelles at 7.30
o'clock this morning under orders to
engago in a decisive action with the
Greeks. A battle began near the Island ot Tenedos less than two hours

Chicago, Jan. S.���The use ot plenty
ot onions will drive, among other
things, contagious diseases out of any
city. Dr. Mary Walker, who Is visiting Chicago friends tonight declared.
Here are Dr. Walker's directions for
the use ot onions: '
Eat plenty ot them stewed, boiled,
fried or r?w. Keen the fumes ot onion continually permeating the atmosphere. Spread onions tn Ut* alleys,
on the lawn or any other place where
It might appear they would do good.
Dr. Walker said onion* were particularly effective against smallpox. The
use of the vegetable* ln two cltle* at
least haa proved her contention to be
correct, ihe laid.
"Madrid was one ot th* affected
cities," she said, "some even had made
the statement before the onion* were
used, that the city would be depopulated by smallpox.   The minister ot

No college youth ever gained prominence on the diamond���more rapidly
than Eppa rtliuy, the Bensatioual
young left-hander who flashed to the
front as a men, ber of the Philadelphia
Nationals last season.
One year ago the name of Eppa
Rixey was unknown to the baseuall
world. Today there Is hardly a city
in the country wherti the fans are nol
familiar with It.
Rixey has the reputation of being
the best pitcher Imported from the
college ranks in years, arid It took
him less than four months to eBtab
Ush it. It did not require even that
long for him to demonstrate his
worth as a player, for less than a
month after he donned a big league
uniform Horace Fogel turned down
an offer of $17,000 for him.
Rixey first attracted attention as a
pitcher while a student of the University of Virginia. In one game there
lie struck out 21 men in a nine inning
struggle and soon had a whole army
of scouts trailing him. When he
graduated last June he had offers
from at least a half dozen big league
All sorts of inducements were made
to the youth, who was finally Induced
to exchange his sheepskin for a Phila
delphia contract calling for $900 a
month, a salary almost equal to that
of a senator. It was through the good
graces' of Umpire Rigler that Rixey
was persusded to cast his lot with the
Phillies, and for the part,th? National
League umpire played In discovering
and getting him to sign' he received
a handsome bonus.

Ttlvey has the distinction of being the
tallest pitcher In the league. He stands
nearly six feet six in his stockings
and uses everv centimeter of his
height in his delivery. Besides having a lot of smoke, he has good curves,
far better control than the average
left-hander, and is an excellent fielder.
There is no question about his having
requirements of a b'g league star. He

"Millionaires" Win by Score
of 15 to 5 at Vancou
Playing sis men and a fraction
against seven well trained nnd tried
players, the New Westminster septette
went down to their third successive
defeat of the season on Saturday
night when Vancouver trimmed them
by 19 goals to 5.
Tbe score by no means Indicates the
play, however; and, had it not been
for the fact that Hugh Lehman, tht
star goalkeeper of the Coast League
waa still-on the hospital list the re
suit might have Been different. It was
expected oa all side, that Lehman
would be in shape to j-lay Saturday
night, but lis physician dictated otber
wisei and "Foxy" Smith was delegated to take his place.
"Foxy" i.laved his best game. In
fact pulled on* some grand saves at
times, but he cannot hold a candle to
Lehman. He showed a tendency to
save the hot ones and allow the slow
shots to slide past him, and these
were tallied in the second period
when the team was pulling off some
classy combination plays. No wonder
tho seven went to plsives.
On the evening's display, \he v'ctory
of the Millionaires was well deserved,
but it cannot be gainsaid that ill-luck
dogged the footsteps of the Royals.
Lehman waa away, Charlie Tobln had
a blood vessel ruptured ln the second
period, while tbe players did not feel
like mixing things with Fred Tayioi
owing to the fact that he was suffering from appendicitis...
The news of Taylor** Illness was
given the Royals ia the afternoon by

Former West of England Player Stare
for Maple  Leaf���Tough   Fight
at Finish.
San Diego, Cal., Jan. 5.���In a game,
marked by brilliant play, at Coronado
Bay the Canadians defeated the Pasadena team by a score of 9 to 3 34.
Accurate drives by A. O. Crltchley,
a former West of England player, now
a member of the Canadian team, did
���mich to gain the lead which the men
from Calgary maintained throughout
the game.
Snowdon was the high score man,
driving six of his team's goals.
From the outset the Canadians appeared to anticipate the Pasadena
teams method of play, and during the
first two periods the Californlans
were unable to register a goal, while
the Canadians kept close to tbe posts
ind Snowdon drove two scores past
the defence.
In the third Reggie Weles at No. 2.
scored a goal from a difficult position
and for a few minutes, brilliant play
hy Pasadena appeared to be turning
the tide. The Canadians, however,
were phowlng their previous form as
the half closed.
In the second half the relative playing ot the teams was almost the same,
but the scoring was heavier. Four
goalB were driven In seven and a half
minutes In the fifth period.

Al  Kauffman,  27,   Might  Have  Bssn
A Great Heavyweight
Of all the words of tongue or typewriter the saddest are, "A Iras-been
fighter." So saith the poet and. blimey, 'tis true. Among the "might have
beens" of tbe squared circle no name
stands out more prominently than
tbat of Al Kauffman. Al, who once
made . noise like the hope of the
paleface race, Waa born ln San Francisco twenty-seven years ago today,
January 6. 1886. Al made his professional debut baok In 1905, wben he
knocked out Harry Foley ln one round
Before that as an amateur, he had
made a wonderful record, and had
formed the habit of winning all his
battles in tbe first round.
Then Came a chapter in Kauffm.n'
career  that  might  be entitled  "The
Fatal Error; or The Cuss of fold.
Kauffman was only a lad of nineteen,
still undeveloped, and though he had,
shown remarkable ring   generalship
for one of his age, was not yet "fltten"
to go up against the veterans of th*
ring. . Yet  he  war   matched  against
Philadelphia Jack O'Brien,  tbe    old
fox of tho ring.   The bont was staged
In San Francisco, and for seventeen
rounds the game Kauffman withstood
the onslaughts of the wily Phlladel
The final blow that stretched Kauffman out for the count was a hook
that took all the ambition out of the
youngster, aad fairly broke hli he��rt
Blinded, cut to pieces, Ksuffmah assimilated a tremendous amount of,
punishment, and that his seconds permitted Mm to continue was an exhlbl
Don of abominable judgment to say
the vary least of It
If Ks'iffman had been permitted tr

Ottawa, Jan. 6.���The government
bas received from the secretary of
state for the colonies a despatcu outlining the proceedings of tbe Imperial Defence Committee during the Imperial conference held in May, 1911,
and during the visit of tlie v^aiiau,^.
ministers last year.
It states that the resolutions put
forward by the Imperial government
and accepted unanimously by members of the Imperial Conference at
the Imperial Defence Committee provided that one or more of the representatives of each government should
be invited to a land defence committee meeting, when tbe question of naval or military defense affecting the
overseas Dominions are under consideration.
The proposal that the defence committee should be established ln each
Dominion was accepted, tbe composition of such committee to be settled
by each Dominion.
These proposals were put before
Premier Borden and his colleagues by
Mr. Asqulth last year. Mr. Borden
accepted, subject to consultation with
his colleagues, and stated that he saw
no reason why a minister with or
without portfolio should not spend
some months each year in    London.
At subsequent conversations between MessrB Asqulth, Harcourt and
Dorden, the latter asked tbat the Dominion in London on the Defence
Committee should be Informed confidentially of any Imperial Government proceeding ln foreign and other
He was assured that the resident
Dominion minister would at all times
have access to the Prime Minister
and Foreign and Colonial Secretaries
for Information on all questions. The
Imperial proposal waa accepted by
Canada in Premier Borden's speech
introducing the Naval Bill.
It is open to all the Dominions, but
is not one necessary for strict uniformity and can be varied to suit in
special circumstances each Dominion.
The dispatch, which Is Bent to all
overseas governments, desires the
adoption of a more continuous connection in naval and military affairs
with the Imperial Committee til the

B. O. Walker Say* Meeting Was Not
������!'���'��� ��� �� Representative One.
.' Edmonds, Jan. 6.���Taking the stand
that the meeting held in Moreton hall
on Friday evening was not representative of the whole of the ratepayers' associations of Burnaby, Mr.
B.; Q. Walker has decided to stay in
the race for the reevoshlp.
At the Edmonds meeting, called by
the Central Ratepayers' Association, a
vote of twelve to three was taken in
favor of endorsing Councillor D. C.
McGregor, but, as only three organiza
tlons were present the vote taken
probably does not indicate the trend
of feeling of the whole of the municipality.
"A meeting will be held ln Moreton

that Mr. Walker wtSjpresent his platform. So far (lnrirj||. the campaign

GRAY.���The late Mrs. Elisabeth
Gray, who died tn Summerland on
Dec. 31. was laid to rest In the Masonic cemetery on Saturday afternoon. Services were held at the home
of'Mr. A." Gray, 226 Second street
where a large number of relations
and friends of the deceased were gathered to pay their last respects.
Friday, evening, the 3rd inst., was
the occasion of a very pleasant meeting rf the field and office staff of
Mr. H. Nevile-Smith, C.E., B.C.L.S,
at his own office on Columbia street,
when the staff presented him with a
handsome bookcase, as a memento
of the closing year. It came in the
uature of a surprise party.
The presentation address was made
by Mr. linger.
Subsequently a varied programme
with music and songs, and many interesting as well as ludicrous remin-
kept the community in a cheerful and
scences of field work in the early
years of surveying In the province
cdtivlvial spirit.
Mr. Neville-Smith's reply to the pre-
sentntn.!! addresfi by Mr. linger, as
well aa his own address later In the
evening,   thoroughly   emphasized   tl
"Who or what is it that governs the
world?" was the question put by Rev.
Owen Bulkeley, rector of St. Mary's,
South Hill, at, the cathedral last night.
There were many answers likely to
be preferred, he said, all ot which
were true to a certain extent, but In
the course of an able and enlightening sermon, he showed how kings and
queens were, governors and yet governed by the people, how they in turn
had their opinions moulded by the
newspapers, how the press was subject to the power of money, how that
again was subservient to knowledge.
And yet, he said, it was not knowledge altogether that ruled, and, reverting to his text from Revelations
13:14, stated that the dead ruled the
world, "and their works do follow
Mr. Bulkeley showed how the progress upon which we pride ourselves
le the result of the work ot preceding
generations, and, elaborating upon his
declamation above, brought out ln
vivid language the work of Jesus,
whose naming was that day being
"It Ib Christ that rules. Civilization
begins with Anno Domini," he said.
The Venerable    Archdeacon    Pent
reath Is seriously ill in Vancouver.
Something of a mystery surrounds
the Identity of the man who was killed by the C. P. R. train in Coqultlam
on Friday evening. The body has
every appearance ot being that or >
working man. but no money or papers
were found in the clothing, ln fact
the only thing found In the pocket*
waa a razor.
The clothing consists ot a bluo
woollen logger's shirt, overalls, heavy
.hoes, and a light felt hat. It appears
to be the body of a man between 35
and 40 years ot age, and would measure about five feet eight Inches. The
weight '���would be about 130 pounds.
The face was dirty, while the hands
were rough and Boiled.
Tbe view has been expressed that
tbe man waa returning to Westmln
ster from one of the construction
lamps along the C. P. R. line, but the
fact that no money was found ln th*>
clothing Is considered strange. Ttin
man looks to have been either a Cana
dian or American.
The man's head was split open by
the lmpace of the engine, and his
shoulder bones and left arm were
broken. The Coqultlam police, In
whose territory the accident occurred
have not yet viewed the bodv. but It
is expected they will do so today. It
Is also very probable that an inquest
will be held today.
