The Harbor Commission bill for the

passed its third reading ln the federal parliament, according to a telegram from Ottawa, received by Mr.
B. 0. Walker, chairman of the committee ot the combined municipalities
and boards of trade of Burnaby, South
Vancouver, Point Grey and Richmond.
Three Members.
The bill constitutes a harbor commission of three members, two ap
pointed by the government and one
representing the combined municipalities. ,
Tbe jurisdiction of the commission
is defined as extending from the New
Westminster city boundary, ou the
west to the Sandheads, including tbe
Sturgeon banks. The commission has
power to borrow money, construct and
lease wharves; also to build a railway along tbe north arm and lease
IL It has also power to expropriate
all riparian rights within itt area.

Mr. Walker expressed the thanks of
. jibe committee to Mr. Taylor, M.P. for
his untiring efforts to get the bill
passed, and to Mr. II. Stevens, M.P.
for hia able assistance. It was a
source of great satisfaction to the four

At a meeting of the executive com

advantages of the Fraser Valley and
New Westminster for settlement and
establishment of industries. The cosi

Richmond Car Service.
The subject of the train service .to
Richmond was discussed. It waB
stated tbat the B. C. E. Railway Company charged 40 Cents from New
Westminster to Steveston, while It
was 25 centa from Vancouver to Steveston; 10 centt from Vancouver to
Eburne, and 15 cents from New Westminster to Eburne.
If they went from New Westminster
to Steveston they had to wait half an
hour at Eburne Junction before the
Steveston car arrived from Vancouver. Mr, Myers suggested that the
B. C. E. II. Company be requested to
run a local car from New Westminster, in connection with the Steveston
car, and so avoid spending half an
hour at Eburne station kicking one's

Residents  Protest Action  of  Vancouver in Securing Burial Oroundt
in  Municipality.
Burnaby -eke, Feb. U���Strong protests will probably be made by the
residents of Burnaby living near thc
area which the Vancouver city council propose to make Into a cemetery,
providing they can make a deal with
the provincial government aa to the
price of the land. This Is located
near the shores of Deer lake and the
residents claim that the contour of
the land la such as to allow drainage
to run Into Burnaby and Deer lake
from the proposed cemetery which
would, they claim, destroy the district
as a residential centre.
No deal has yet been made and negotiations between the government
who own many acres ln Burnaby, and
the Vancouver council are only in tentative form but the deal will be
watched with Interest and most probably, representations will be made to
the municipal council asking that they
take the matter up with the attorney
general, before that gentleman gives
his consent to the sale of the land
for a cemetery site.

people of Canada would not protest.

About the time Madero was seized

Cabinet Arrested.
All members of tbe cabinet promptly were placed under arrest, with tbe
exception ot Ernesto Madero, uncle ot
the president, who beld the portfolio
of finance. He was apprised of the
intentions against the Madero government and made his escape. .
Notwithstanding the fact that some
| definite action was expected today
the coup d'etat at the palace caused
a sensation and the exact status of
affairs could not be ascertained for
several hours.
The direct move against Madero
was the result of a plot which had
been brewing since yesterday.
Blanquet Unwilling.
From the first It had been known
that General Blanquet was unwilling
to fight His men were ot the same

an agreement was reached whereby
the appointment of General Huerta to
the provisional presidency was proclaimed.
Fierce Fighting.
Prior to thit, however, Huerta's attempt to communicate with Diaz precipitated one of the sharpest engagements of the day. Tbe fire from tke
rebel rifles and machine guns was
long sustained. It was by no mean-
certain at that time that the coup
which bad been carried out 'meant
the end of hostilities. At 2.50 lu the
afternoon the cannonading continued
heavy and the rattle of machine guna
was heard ln various quarters. AL

Today there sails from Victoria to our sister dominions of Australia and New Zealand, Canada's minister of
trade and commerce, who as the Canadian representative
upon the Dominions Royal commission is bent upon a more
comprehensive and exhaustive study of the resources of all
parts of the empire, for the sake of the mutual benefit that
is to be derived from a common knowledge thereof.
In touching upon many of inter-imperial problems
such as immigration, we have had occasion to refer previously to the work being performed by this commission
which was formed for the purpose of reporting upon the
resources, production, trade, manufactures, etc., of each
part of the empire represented at the Imperial conference.
While Mr. Foster did not pay this city a visit it is nevertheless true that Westminster has, in common with all the
province, a very vital interest in the outcome of his mission.
From a better understanding with the dominions in
the southern hemisphere, in other words by the merits of
publicity upon an imperial scale, the trade between us
and them and vice versa is likely to reach very great proportions. We upon the Fraser can see the beginning of
this trade equally as well in the cargoes of lumber which
leave here for Australia and South Africa as can our
neighbors in Vancouver when each monthly steamer from
Australasia is crammed to capacity with butter, mutton
and other foodstuffs.
These articles, it is to be hoped, we shall be able to dispense with in due course of our agricultural development,
but there are many other staples besides these shipped
to us from under the Southern Cross.
We send soft woods south, they in return send us of
their hard woods, while, as the seasons are opposite, a
reciprocal trade in fruit is gradually developing. There
are many other branches of trade with Australia and New
Zealand, but, taking fruit alone, one may easily, appreciate
that wider markets wait for British Columbia in these
countries jusi as soon as our fruit industry is properly or-
liar with the reality itself. | the missionary efforts of Dr.Grenfell

}1tb. Meyer'B latest drama, "The
Dreamer," has clothes for a motif.
The heroine, daughter of a poverty-
stricken artist, is tempted to marry
a rich man she dceBn't care for in the
least, so that ehe may be able to bedeck herself in the finery her scul
craves for. Mru. Meyer admits that
the husbands and fathers wlll incline
toward the estimate of the Jersey
judge, rather than her own���but she
has observed thru masculine eyes are
nearly always turned toward the well-
dressed woman, and that they bestow
scant attention on the cheaply-clad
women whose economies they admire,
And there may.be something tn

Sir Donald Mann Tells
of Plans of His Road
Toronto, Feb. 18.���That the Canadian Northern grain held up at Port
Arthur by the embargo of the Canadian Pacific Railway would remain
so until the openlngof navigation ln
the spring, ls the opinion of Sir Donald Mann, vice-president of the Canadian Northern Railway, when interviewed last night. He has just returned from a long stay on the Pacific Coast, where for Borne time past
lie has been completing arrangement?
with the Manitoba Government and
the City of Vancouver for the im-
menee Pacific terminal projects
which the C. N. R. is to undertake.
Sir Donald did not blame the C. P.
It. for the holding of the Canadian
Northern grain. The Canadian P��*l:
flc have on hand far more grain than
they are able to handle and lt wae not
to be expected that they would handle
that of the C. N. R. until they had
their own disposed of. The C. N. R.
have grain elevators at Port Arthur
with a capacity of seven million bushels, and wltb the completion this
spring of the new elevator that wlll
have a capacity of two and a half million, this road will have elevators at
Port Arthur with nine and a half million bushels of grain.
At the present time and up to the
opening of navigation tn the spring,
the C. N. R. outlet for grain is through
to Duluth and this Is to be utilized te
the fullest extent by this road.
Not Enough Outlets.
Sir Donald declared that there were
not enough outlets-through Canada at
the' present time, and as a result the
banks and farmers of Canada had to
bear the burden of having the money
tied up until the opening of navigation for the market In Europe. Wltb
sufficient transportation through to
the Pacific and Atlantic, lt will do
away with the tying up of Canadian
capital tor so many mouths of the
When would the Canadian Northern
Transcontinental line be completed
and readv to afford rellefT The contracts call for the completion of the
line from the prairie provinces
through to Montreal and also of the
line from tbe prairie provinces
through to the Pacific Coast by October 1. stated Sir Donald. Hc
thought it would not be ready by then
however. The line from the middle
west to Montreal would probably be
completed tbls fall, but the western
'section of the line, from the middle
west to the Pacific Coast probably
would not see completion before tbe
end of the year. One of the chief delays wru Id he In the construction of
seventeen steel bridges, between the
mountains and Kamloops.
It Is the hope of the Canadian
Northern Railway, however, to have a
share in moving Canada's grain crop
east over their own lino on the close
of navigation this year. In doing this
the Canadian Northern are to have
two Atlantic coast outlets. Halifax
and St. John. These are to be reached from the termination of the C. N.
It. at Quebec over tha Intercolonial
Ps-lflc   Coast   Terminals.
With tbe completion ot the Transcontinental . tbe Canadian Northern
are to accomplish great things.   The
I biggest of these will be the establish-
| ment of a Pacific coast fleet.   Within
| eight years thiB latter will be an accomplished    fact.-       Another    thing
1 whiuh the C. N. R. officials are to devote' themselves to on   completion of
the main line will be the building of
hotels which will be  a credit to the
cities  in  which they are  built,   and
which wlll be erected ln the   larger
centres right across the Dominion.
The first big hotel to be erected ln
Canada by this road will be at Vancouver, In connection with their pacific Coast terminals, and. which will
cost considerable over a million dollars. In connection with these terminal projects they are meeting with
determined opposition from the Great
Northern and other rival roads. The
project had met the approval of the
British Columbia Government and also of the Vancouver City Council, and
.is shortly to be voted upon by the citizens of Vancouver. Although the opposition being put forward was most
determined, Sir Donald believed that
the citizens of the Pacific Coast city
would endorse the Canadian Northern in the big project.
The cost of the terminal facilities is
to run into millions and Include a million-dollar station. Within two years
these terminals must be ready for
operation and within five years must
be completed.
Move Grain West.
On tbe opening of the Panama
''anal the Canadian Northern would
be In a position to move grain west as
readily as east. In fact the moving
of grain to the Pacific Coast would
be an easier matter than moving it
east, as the grades In the western end
if the line are superior to those lu
the east.
lhe effect of the opening   of the
Panama Canal would be the filling up
' the Pacific Coast province and the
Peace River district.    Instead of immigrants filtering through  the other
provinces of tbe Dominion they wovld
en through to the coast direct.   The
: Pacific Coast was unexcelled for Brit
iih ire migration.    Not only has lt an
abundance of fertile soil to offer for
j cultivation, but offers a climate which
is the nearest aproach to that ot England of any place on the continent.
Cattle   Country:
The Peace River district would be
more of a cattle country that that of
grain.   The warm winds there meant
a mild year all year   round   climate.
Miles of tho very finest grazing country are to be found there.
Referring  to  thc Transcontinental
| Sir Donald declared that the   ('ana
idlan  Northern's task  made   that   of
! those building other roads across the
Dominion seem easy.     The   government had built the C. P. R.'s line from
I pr-n Arthur to Winnipeg and also ?50
'miles in from the Pacific Coast.  The
Grand  Trunk  Pacific  were  recei 'ing
: even more aid from the government

great pride of their soldiers, not only
fighting and defeating the Turks and

ahowu so much activity, sacrifice and
energy as during the Balkan war.
They have proved their extraordinary
tenacity, great Interest In publlc affairs, aa well as' deep patriotism and

for Supply   of   Castings  for  City  of
Victoria���New Westminster Foundry   Lowest  Tenderer.
The tender of $31,473 by the New
Westminster Foundry Company,
Braid street, Saperton, for the supply
of castings to the city council of Victoria, has been accepted by a majority
of that corporation sitting ln committee
There -were six tenders in all and
the New Westminster company's bid
was the lowest, the next being $4447
above tbe Westminster firm.
The tenders ranged as high as $54,-
���806, a difference between the hlghost
mild lowest of $33,000. Those bids recently received were: New Westminster foundry Company, $31,473; B. C.
Foundry Company, $35,920; Vancouver
Knglneering Company, $36,028; Hutchison IlroB., Victoria, (62,157; Marine
Iron Works, Victoria, $52,826; Victoria
Machinery Depot, $54,606.
Some opposition was expressed by
a few aldermen to giving the contract
to an outside firm, but the resolution
to a6��*ept the lowest bid was carried.
Ttfe resolution has to be ratified by
an open council.
In legard to the bids City Engineer
Rust ot Victoria reported that Hie
amounts had been based on last year'n
supply. He waB not prepared to a.l-
Tlse Ills -fomcil as to whether the
lowest tender should be accepted, as
ho did not know the capabilities of
tho firm tendering. If the city ran
short of castings there might be some
difficulty in getting them when tbe
order la placed out of town. The
price tendered by the Westminster
company appeared to him to be low
so care would have to be exercised to
see that the castings, especially for
thc waterworks are of the first class.

one for every 27,068, Nova Scotia one
for every 27,352, and Prince Edward
Island one for every 23,432.
The average present unit of representation in the four WeBtern provinces, Mr. Turriff said, is thus 49,739.
For the five Eastern provinces the
unit is 29,376. Roughly speaking then
each of the members from the West
represents 20,000 more people than un
Eastern member.
Not Equally Represented.
Continuing, Mr. Turriff called upon
ihe prime minister to remedy this condition before he tries to pasB the
naval bill. He had been informed, he
went on, that when the vote on the
premier's resolution was taken last
Thursday the men voting against lt
represented practically the same
number of electors as did those members who supported lt. Under the circumstances and In view of that fact
the House as now constituted doe?
not entirely represent the people of
Canada and the bill should not be put
through parliament until redistribution has taken place.
Mr. Turriff went on to argue that
constitutionally, by section 61 of the
British North America Act, the government, is bound to bring about redistribution without delay. The West,
he continued, has only about half Its
proper representation ln the present
House and it is manifestly unfair to
pass so Important a measure as the
naval'bill until this condition Is remedied. Mr. Borden should make good
the promise he made on his last West
ern tour, that one of the first thing"
he wo'ild do if returned to power
would be to pasB a redistribution bill.
22 New Members.
Returning to his claim that a redistribution must and should be
brought in by the government, Mr.
Turriff stated that if the west were
represented in the house in accordance with its population to the same
extent as the east, there would be 57
members from the four western provinces instead of 35 as at present. Ib
It fair, he asked for the government
to put through thlB naval bill when
practically half of the west la represented here?
Mr. Turriff then moved the following amendment to the motion that the
naval bill be read a second time:
"That said bill be not now read a
second time but that lt be resolved
that it Is the constitutional duty of
the government, under the terms of
the British North America act, immediately to Introduce a measure for
the readjustment of the representation of the provinces according to
population as established by tbe cen
present right of the west to Increased representation since that Increase
depends upon the census figures of
1911, but the fact emphasizes, he held,
the unfairness to the western provinces by. failure to grant them the
full'-lrepresentation to which they nre
entitled under the census. Suppose, he
continued, thers Ib no redistribution
blll^at this session. One might be
brought-in next year. But suppose
that happened and some unforeseen
ctretimBtance came up which prevented the government from completing its
next, session, as was the case with
SO* Jchn Macdonald's government in j
1573J, and again with the government
irt in^   .
For Whole Decade.
If "{fils contingency arose and the
government for any reason was forced? to appeal to the people next year,
before a fair redistribution bill had
passed, the people elected ln 1904
would have the right to sit until 1909.
In'' that parliament British Columbia and Manitoba would be represented only by the members permitted
under the census of 1901 and and Saskatchewan and Alberta by the number permitted under the census taken ln those two provinces ln 1906.
For practically the whole decade
then, oetween 1911 and 1921, the west
wquld be without the full measure of
representation to which It Is entitled
under fche census of 1911.
Appeal  to  People.
Under the census of 1911, the government is ln duty bound, Mr. Turriff
said, in conclusion, to bring in a redistribution bill at once. If that is
denied, he said, the Liberals will help
to hasten its passage. Then let there
be an appeal to the people and it
wonld be made clear as to which of
the two naval proposals meet with
the. approval of the majority of the

The  Amendment.
This amendment, he Bald,.asks for
a fair and reasonable course. Many
people have gone Into the west since
the census was taken. The statement
has been made by a branch of the
government that the Immigration during every 21 days ls sufficient to entitle  the  west  an   extra   member.

In tbe city or Milan, Italy,
Signor Lorenzo is dlBtinugished
aa a man of affluence, and president of one ot its largest insurance companies.' Outwardly,
a man of suave urbanity; Inwardly, a tyrannical despot, dishonorable crook and Insatiable
libertine. Even his apparently
successful business career ls
founded upon the dollars stolen
from his mother, who dies ln
His business aBaociates are of
the foremost; socially, the most
select. The other side of his
life Is only known to himself.
Periodically, under cover of the
night, disguiBcd as a hunchback,
he visits the lowest brothels,
asscciating with thieves and
cut-throats, who aid him in hla
At the "Alcazar" he meets
Maria, who by the death of her
father is obliged to make her
own living ns a serving maid;
she Is young and beautiful, Lorenzo casts his lascivious eyes
upon her, and tries to lure her.
She repulses him by slapping
him In the tape.
Miguel, a young goldsmith,
and his friend Pietro, who happen to be In the cafe, defend
her and Bee her Bafely home.
l,oren70 smarting under the
blow and angered by the Interference of the men, swears vengeance against Maria and
Miguel. Miguel falls ln love
with Maria and they are married. I crenzo with hia Influence, makes It Impossible for
Miguel to secure employment.
On the eve (if Maria's oonfine-
ment, she ts dispossessed and
set. upon the street, from
whence she ls taken to tbe hospital.
The populace )s aroused by
the persecutions of Lorenzo and
his Ilk. Miguel asserts himself
in no uncertain tone. Lorenzo
appears upon the scene at the
head of a company of cavalry.
His presence Incites Miguel to
frenzy nnd he Bclzes him by tbe
throat.   Miguel Is arrested.
Maria, after the birth of her
child, dies. Glulla, over the
dead body ot her half-slBter,
registers a terrible oath to
avenge her death* and bring Lorenzo to justice. After the
death of his wife, Miguel, being reloased from prison,' comes
to the hospital, and seeing her
still form upon the cot, knows
the end has come.
Ten years later Miguel, by
the death of an aunt, ls left a
row of tenements In Milan. Being prosperous once more, be
moves with his daughter Kosa,
her grandmother and his good
friend Pletro, to a little village
near Lake Como. Glulla has,
become a great actress and
marries Coute Crura, through
whom she enters the first
circles of Milan's society, and
becomes acquainted with ,Lo-
lMi/.o, enabling her to weave
the web about him. This she
accomplishes with the aid of
De Waldls, her counsellor and
legal adviser, who also has a
score to settle against him. Ix>-
renzo learns of Miguel's prosperity and again determines to
lu und him He bargains with
Ihe leader of a band of Gypsies
to kidnap Kosa. On the evo of
the expiration of the insurance
on Miguel's houses in Milan,
Lorenzo purposely withholds notice. He then employs a degenerate young Italian named Tano
to set fire to the houses, burning tbem to the ground, mailing
thorn a total lose.
Miguel and Pletro go to
Milan to find Lorenzo, whom
they suspect of dent raying
Miguel's property. Ia tbs meantime, Lorenzo goes to Paris
with Giulia. While ln Milan,
Miguel and Pletro receive word
of the Iosb of little Kosa They
return to Lake Como and join
ln the search for her, which is
without avail. They conclude
that her disappearance is the
work of Lorenzo.
Glulla has Lorenzo completely Infatuated and within her power,
it ls then Bhe closes In upon him. Through De Waldls' evidence, all
hla property is confiscated and restored to its rightful heirs. Glulla
keeps him In Paris, where he is entirely unconscious of his downfall. Miguel aud Pletro, with DeWaldis. go to Paris and find him
held captive by Glulla. At bay before Miguel, the hated object of his
vengeance, he is desperate.' Miguel strangles the fiend and makes
him I ell the whereabouts of his little Rosa, Gasping for breath, and
li'I;''���*���<, be reveals her hiding place, Glulla tben unbosoms herself
to the detestable wretch and tells blm how she has followed him
and ensnared blm to wreak vengeance for the death ot Maria, ber
little sister. It ts tben and not until then, that Miguel knows who
she ts. Miguel and Pletro, after finding Rosa, return to their home
at Lake Como. DeWaldis secures the full payment of fire insurance
for the destruction of Miguel's houses ln Milan. Surrounded by his
little Rosa, her grandmother and Pletro, Miguel passes his days in
peaceful ponnesslon of their love and the quiet of his home.
Lorenzo flees back to Milan and meets the ruin which awaits him.
Tano. the Incendiary, goes Instne over the crime he committed. I.Ike
n wild beast, he watches at "The Silver Horn" for the coming of the
"Hunchback," whom he hates with all the mad Intensity of hiB -malady. Lorenzo, finding all doors closed, all eyes shut and lips sealed
In loathing against him, seeks his level In the brothel. Tano, like a
fiend, overawes him with the gleam of his eye, sets fire to the building, and leads blm to an upper room, locks the door, and throws
the key from the window, Tsno, taunting and cursing tbe miserable
wretch. Jumps from the window to bis death, leaving Lorenzo to perish In thc flames.

With two victories already to their
credit the Y.M.C.A. team will go on
Ice this evening confident ot trimming the Moose and thus place themselves in a strong position for the
championship title of the hockey
league, not forgetting the Colonel McRae trophy. The same enthusiasm
reigns ln the Moose camp, tbe manager of the herd basing his claim on
the fact that tfitthtf new players will be seeni Mflnlform while
practice has been'faithfully carried
out since their defeat by. Burnaby in
the first game ofuher-giason.
Anyway tbe gasw rfilld be an Interesting one from any standpoint
and the amateurs of this etty can
rest assured that If only they dlsb out
the same brand df hoekey as ln the
past four games the public wlll support them both morkhy and financially. ..,     ...
The game of hockey like the saying
about life, ls one of upsets, one'team
losing a game only to come right back
in the next with a complete reversal
of form and surprise even their own
" Tbe Y.M.C.A. aggregation can be
placed In the surprise column for they
have won their first two' games solely
by a do or die spirit and also the almost Impregnable defence which they
have signed up. In Knight, Cunningham and Dunford they have about the
best line of fortifications in the
league and the forwards of any team
will find tbe going hard if they ever
hope to run up any elzed score against
the yellow and white septette.
Tonight's game will start Immediately following the regular skating
session, two periods of twenty-five
minutes each being the time limit.
A big delegation of supporters of
the National -Sports billiard team wlll
arrive ln this city this evening in a
special car ready to support their pets
in the match against the Royals.     V
The N. P.s are only one game
ahead of Paul and Bales team with
ye olde English aggregation perched
on top, so that a win by the Royals
wlll create an upset.
The local team wlll be chosen from
the following: Coldicutt, Orant, Reid,
Douglas, Mansfield aud Hunter.

That Stanley Cup.
The decision reached by Lester Patrick of the Victoria hockey team, that
In thc event of the Islanders winning
the Paterson Cup they will refuse to
go east and meet Quebec unless the
latter agree to play tor tbe Stanley
Cup on the Toronto Ice does not alto-
appeal to New Westminster
hockey fans and those : Interested In
any kind of sport' tor that matter.
Basing their claim that the Quebec
rink is a box affair does not alter
matters any, for tke' management of
the Ancient City Septette are quite
ln their rights in refusing to play in
Toronto if they should wish, and are
showing a fair deal to their own supporters who are keeping tbe team,
paying their salaries with the patronage given So why, asks the Quebec
manager, should wn deprive our own
people of the pleasure ot Seeing Stanley Cup games?
Tbelr answer to the Patricks Is a
fair and square one;.they hare a fight
to dictate as to what rink tbe games
should be played In, and If tbey de-
aide on their own 'box affair," then
the Coast teams have nothing else to
do but to Invade tbe tar Rastern city
it tbey wish to clash for the Stanley
Cup this winter at least
Picture an Eastern lacrosse team

U the Coast hockey magnates want

wlll be at Calgary, and the majority
of the enecutlve council were appointed from that city.
. This move was the result of a reorganization instituted at tbe first of

C. A. matters was formed with headquarters at Toronto. It will work
through three territorial committees,
of which the one appointed ls the
most important < from tbe standpoint
of area covered.
The three committees represent the
Maritime provinces, Ontario and Quebec and Western Canada. The latter
will have a budget of about $6000,
which was authorized at the above
meeting. This aum will be raised
from the local branches, and will be
devoted to the supervising from the

Germany Is Ahead of
Us in Townplanning
City Planning in Germany" was
the topic of discussion at the Metropolitan Brotherhood in Regina last
week, when, despite the blizzard raging at the time, a large number ot
men interested in this phase of civic
life turned out to hear the matter
discussed under the leadership of Pro.
feasor Hugh Dobson, of Regina College.
The leader explained that the facts
which he had gathered, in connection
with Ihe subject, had been gleaned
from the reports of men of international reputation, such as Frederick
H. Howe, one of the greatest authorities on the operation^ of the Town
Planning scheme in the States. Mr.
Howe went to Germany on purpose to
study for himself what was being done
there. *
The object of the scheme In Germany is to protect the people's Interests as against private interests, aa
well as to make provision for the
beautifying pf the cities and provide
for proper sanitation and everything
per.alnlng to the highest well being
of the citizens.
One of the first principles of the
scheme is to gain thorough control
of land within the city limits. In the
early days, tbe towns and cities were
planned according to the cheapest
plan, the rectangular system being
used. Now cities are planning far in
advance of their growth, making provision for the construction of new
streets to be from one hundred to
two hundred feet in width.
Divide City Into Zones.
In many cases what -is known as
the zone system is used, the city being divided into three zones. In tho
zone comprising tbe business area,
the plan provides for the height of
business blocks and all other matters
pertaining to the best interests of
this area. The second area is residential. In this zone all houses must
be at least 19 1-2 feet apart, each
house to contain no more than tiiree
What is known as the third zone is
also a residential section, but each
house must be 26 feet away from its
nearest neighbor, and consist cf nol
more than two stories. Care is taken
that the  factor)- ...:d  Industrial area
Iu many cases the city buys land,
holds it, and sells it for building purposes.
The lecturer gave many figures
showing to what extent Old Country
cities are property owners. For example, the city of Vienna contains
67,000 areas, 32.000 of which is owned
by the city. These areas are used for
the benefit of the working class. The
cty builds houses, up-to-date and sanitary, and rents them at anywhere
from $5 a month up.
Such rents would be a dream in
Regina, yet they are quite possible
ln the old country. By the city taking the matter in hand the working
men are given good houses are given
good houses at a low rate, and are
protected against the private interests
Ever With Playgrounds.
These areas are provided with the
proper playgrounds and public parks.
Wherever possible the cily owns all
property adjoining its limits, and also
all harbors and bodies of water ln
close proximity, ihe non-navigable
bodies are used for pleasure, while
the navigable waters are put to Indus
trial use, docks and wharves being
built and everything possible done to
encourage industrial concerns to locate there.
By adopting these methods not only is the working man protected, but
the standard cf houses is raised.
Others have to come up to the standard set by the city or the owners cannot sell them. These cities ciatm thai
the housing problem is too important
to be left to private individuals. The
subject of taxation and public debt
was touched on, but this matter will
come up for discussion at a future
Winnipeg  Next  Discussed.
Getting nearer home, the Brotherhood next Sunday afternoon will discuss the Town Planning movement as
being carried on in Winnipeg. Mr.
Justice Brown will have charge of
the discussion and will give an address on subjects as being dealt with
in that city.
The sum of three mtlUon dollars
has been brought into Winnipeg with
a view to building houses for working men, houses that will be both
sanitary and comfortable, and the idea
Bituated on the side of the city i is to rent them at as low a rale as
away from the prevailing wind, so as;possible. Tbe whole matter will be
to rid the other sections of the smoke j gone into fully by Judge Brown next
isance. ] Sunday.

Thursday, after a lingering illness
which begun when he was Strieker,
with paralysis two years ago. His
wife and daughter were summoned at
that time from the blast and have
been with him since. The weakness
of old age had crept upon him, and
although he worked at times, he
rarely ventured far from the
"Heights," as he called his mountain
For many yearB "The Heights" haa
been the Mecca of lovers of Joaquin
Miller's poetry. He received his guests
graciously and loved to talk in a vein
of quaint humor of the old adventurous days which he memoralised in
lim verae. ins faculties were utidiiu
med until almost the end, and ho
worked at intervals' upon a poem
which he said was to lie the most
momentous work of his life. He
guarded the poem with the utmost
secrecy and not even his wlfo auu
daughter knew its subject.
Since his collapse Thursday he regained consciousness several times
and realized this morning that he
could not survive the day.
"i am dying -pity me, pity me !" he
whispered to his daughter. In a BRini
conscious condition lie said "please
lake me away." Ills last words to his
wife were "I love you."

cernable. Uraemia poisoning und

by the attending physician as the
direct cause of death.

Do you ever stop to t'link when you
have a dollar In your band, just when
lt first came lnio existence, arid what
people used hundreds of years ago
before aueh a coin had ever been
heard df?
Iu tlie old civilizations cf Italy,
Greece, Egypt and Asia Minor ihere
was no such thins as money. Instead
the most possession of each country
served as a basis fer finance, and
troublesome times they did have,
when one race of people traded with
another and did not agree at all on
each other's standards of value.
In ancient Sparta for instance, huge
gorgeous chariots served as dollars.
If a man wanted to buy u house and
lot he hnd to drive a certain number
of chariots to his deBlred place of
bbode, and then give them In exchange for the land he wished. Sometimes whole davs were spent in deciding, and outsiders hnd to be called
in to assist tn determining the value
of the Roods to be bartered.
In Africa they were a little more
sensible in choosing for money small
er sized articles. The natives were
exteremely fond of Jewelry and fanev
decorations ot all kinds, and so for
coin they used delicate shells of various sizes. To be sure they were a
bit unsvlmiantlal, and If a man broke
his shell the loss wns h!8. There was
no government back of him lo redeem
the OUriancy. But ihe arrangement
seemed In aatlsfv cn Ihe whole, fnr
It was In vogue for many centuries.
��� In old Japan daggers wore mads
Into money. They did not seem to
find It hard determining the value.
and the metal was practical and sub
stantisl and lasted Indefinitely.
The most terrible form of money
the world Ins ever known was that
In vogue In the days of tho early Roman empire, when women were used
quite frequently for money. If a man
owned b beautiful "lave and preferred land, tlie bargain was speedily
made. And If the land or object he
desired were very valuable he mlvht
have to yield several of his women
Turbulent ilmen tbere have been In

the usual education channels is all
nonsense. The great masters wrote
their music to be heard, not to be studied. Only a comparative few can be
reached by educational methods, such
as schooln, clubs, and so gn.
The big thing is to go straight to
the people with the great works ol
musical art."
In the above words Arthur Farwell,
the famous New York musical critic
and authority, and supervisor of municipal concerts in parks and on piers
for the metropolis of America, threw
a bomb-shell into the camp of advocates df musical training by campaign methods, when he addressed the
Canadian Club of Toronto last week.
"I do not mean to say tbat educational methods are absolutely harmful," said Mr. Farwell. "There is no
reason why brains Bhould not come
tagging along after the human spirit
���but the spirit will always be first,
'so do not trammel or confine Its oppo-
t unities."

Mr. Farwell ia an ardent apostle of
the new movement for bringing music
to all the people. He ls full of enthusiasm over the results already
achieved in this line in cosmopolitan
New fork, and is most optimistic as
to the future.

Badge   Suggestions.
P. L. Helmn, First l_>ngmoor Troop
(England', makes the following sug-
siestions upon the Silver Wolf and
King's Scout badges in the Montreal
I am a Sliver Wolf under the old
regulations, and I quite agree that
"the old regulations for the Silver
Wolf encouraged badge hunting." It
undoubtedly did! A scout would
work hard for a badge, pass, and then
commence, on another, totally neglecting the badges he had already obtained in his eagerness to obtain the
But, if I may be permitted to offer
an opinion, I consider that the new
regulations do not remedy the matter,
for under them the "Wolf" ts to a
������-���vat extent a badge for the lucky.
The reason I term it "a bodge for the
lucky," Is this: There are many
.couis In the country who have the
necessary badge qualification, but
who have not had the chance of saving life, and probably never will, consequently they can never quality lor
the "Wolf." although they may be
every bit as plucky and resourceful as
those who have got lt
For Instance, the troop 1 am In at
present is in a small country village
22 miles from the sea; there are no
really dangerous swimming places
within several miles of our bead-
quarters; there are very few horses,
except slow farm horses, to run away:
and there have been no large flret
here for years What chance has a
boy in a troop ruch.nB this to save a
life, however willing he may be?
And I expect there are many such
troops. A boy may be well up ln
woodcraft first aid, and other scout
subjects, be may do hte good turns
regularly, and be may carry out the
"Scout Law" to tbe letter, and yet
cannot win the coveted "Wolf" merely
because be haa never had the good
fortune to come across a chance of
saving life. I think the "Wolf" should
be kept as an honor for those scouts
who are real scouts In every sense
of the word, even though they have so
far been unlucky and not had a
chance to show their pluck.
By adding the life saving to the test,

"1. The use of the eymphony orchestra, the greatest power in all of
medern music.
"2. Realizing that there is no such
question as 'uplift,' and widening the
people's horizon, so that by giving
them more music they can demand
the finer type. They should not be
blamed for not demanding the best
music, when they have never heard it.
We find that when they do once hear
the great works they demand them
more than anything. Half a million
people attended our symphony concerts last year��� as many as attended
ten times as many band concerts. It
is necessary to follow a plan of steady
persistence. No not tell them, bnt
give them music.
"3. Awaken the mass-spirit, where
the Individual takes upon himself a
universal consciousness. Regularity,
persistence, anticipation���a kind of
spiritual momentum, are necessary to
be aroused in people's minds.
"4. Leaders must be adequate;
they must reveal the spirit of the
compositions to the people. We have

being a protege of a friend of Wagners��� and forty fine bandmasters.
Word of Popular Music.
Mr. Farwell handed out another
rap wben he said: "Musical 'culture'
as practiced is aristocratic and narrow;  it centres ln a smug system of
nual   appropriation  of   $100,000,   Bin- i affectation and pose, foBtered by art*

the enthusiastic supervisor, have
made music a powerful factor in New
York life, for all the people.
"Our season lasts from June to September," said Mr. Farwell, "and we
give about 80 concerts a week���Nearly
a thousand concerts a summer.
"Under the right conditions of the
awakening of the mass-spirit of the
people, there ia no music, however
great, that connot be given to people
without getting tremendous response.
That has nothing to do with individual intellectual appreciation of music
by any one member of a crowd. It is
almost a psychic phenomenon the way
music gets hold'of the over-soul of the
people; it is the most wonderful thing
in the world.

service to the people���it is trained altogether out of sympathy with great
national i.sucs."
As for popular music, Mr. Farwell
has a kind word. He does not condemn it, but properly shows that it ia
not a part of music ln the highest
sense, and does not aim to be.
"Popular music," said he, "does not
bear the same relation to music that
shrubs do to trees. It is a kind of
sub-soil. It has no higher aspirations,
and hence should not be condemned
on the score of comparison. It serves
a very useful purpose, for it appeals
to the universal sense of rude rhythm
in man. Ragtime is even a high perfection with these limitations; remember, lt doeB not aspire��� it fulfills a wholly different function ln the
world, and is content to rest ln its
own sphere."

Toronto, Feb. 18.���During the coming few week* the photographer* of
Toronto should secure a large amount
of Oriental patrons. . The local immigration officials have commenced
their campaign for the re-registration
of ail Chinamen living InToronto, and
It Is necessary that every Celestial
should have his photograph taken to
be pasted on tbe certificate.
Already a large number of the Oriental residents have been notified by
the department that they must present their old certificates and receive
the new ones, whloh have arrived
from Ottawa, but judging from the results it appears that they have a great
antipathy against having their pictures taken, for the response ba* been
very small.
All   Must* Consent.
It Is now the Intention ot the authorities to conduct a regular campaign and force the registration, and
as the Celestials will not come to the
officers the officers will go to the
Celestials. And a* there are over 2,-
000 registered in the city there will
be a great business done by the local
photographers while the campaign
