clause be added to section 7:
The   Amenoment.

ihat the lands of the company situate

In explanation of this amendment.
Sir Richard informed the house that
the Canadian Northern had bought a
large section of land in New Westminster, the property being on Columbia
and Front streets, and it was subject
to local Improvement taxation.
He announced that he had been
in communication with the president
of the railway company and he had
signified a willingness to join wltb
other owners in the matter of meet-
\ ing the costa of local improvement

oany  was  benefited  in common with

Philosophy cf Pessimism.
The f.rst Occidental philosopher to
formulate a   system   of pessimistic
thought  was   Arthur    Schopenhauer,
who wa3 born in German; 125 years
ago today, and died in  1860.    Schopenhauer, who now has hundreds of
thousands of followers in Europe and
America, taught that this is the worst
possible  of  worlds,   that  human   life,

In other words, Schopenhauer
mourned because lie couldn't eat his

style was most attractive, and his
works had a pri* .und influence. He,
was a -woman-hater, blaming the fair

Fngland    Plans   TV o    Memorials   ,To
Honor George  Washington.
A New York tavern was the scene
lilu yearB ago today of the first celebration of Washington's birthday. Today tha anniversary will be observed
as si legal holiday in every stale ot
the union, and in Porto Ilico and Alaska, while in Hawaii and the far
I'hilipines the "father of his country"
will  be honored.
Most significant of all, the British
commit ee for the celebration in 191-
ot the centenary of Anglo-American
peace will obBcrve the day by plan-
n'ng two memorial., to the memory
of the first president of the t'nited
S'ates. In the Mother Country all the
old animo'-.'ie3 thai linked the name
of Washington with thai ot "rebel"
are forgotten, and Britons now rein in
ber onlv thai lie was a great man and
an  F.nglislinian.
It is proposed that one of the English memorials to Washington take
the form of a monument In Westminster Abbey or in Westminster Hall.
Th" other project is for the purchase
of Stilgrave Manor, in Northamptonshire, the nncestral home of Washington, to be preserved aa a permanent
Washington museum.
The old manor is in the tiny rural
village of Northends. five miles from
Banbury. The first Washington t/i
own the property was Laurence, son
of John Washington of Lancashire.
He amassed a fortune as a wool merchant of London, and waa knighted
by Henry VIII. The manor and lands
of Sulgrave were given to Laurence
Washington hy King Henry following
lhe dissolution of the monasteries.
Laurence erected the house, a quaint
old structure, which still hears th��
rnyal arms of Queen Elizabeth, and
the mullets and bars of thi-- Washington Tamily.
Laurence Washington "*fii twice
mayor of N'orthnnpion, and held many
other positions if honor. The tomb
ef Laurence and his wife. Amv, marked by a brass tablet. may ntill be seen
In the old Church of St. James at Sulgrave. There Is a tradi'lon that Laurence Washington was a personal
friend of Shakespeare, but of this
there   ls   no  proof.
Tii" founder of Sulgrave was succeeded by his son Robert, a spendthrift, who speedily disbursed the family fortune, while Sulgrave passed out
of   IiIh   hands.       Robert's     grandson,
Laurence, revived the reputation of
the family, becoming a popular clergyman, The Uev. Laurence was faithful to Charles II.. and for this was
ejected from his charge by Cromwell.
After his death, his eldest sons,
Laurence and John, sailed for the new
world, settling in Virginia. John became a fanner on an estate at Northern Neck, between the Potomac and
Rappahannock, John's son Laurence,
became the father of Angus'.ine Washington, who, in turn, was the father
of  the great  Oeorge.
One of the most enthusiastic of
Washington birthday celebrations will
be held today in San Jinn, Porto Rico,
and will include tho formal opening
of the third Insular Fair. Thla big
exhibition of Porto Rirau products
will be held on new grounds, given to

The steamship in question was ready to sail from the Clyde. All that
k:pt her at the Tail of the Hank was
the lack of a surgeon.
A qualified lady doctor, the daughter of a member of the Institute of
Marine Engineers, heard of the difficulty and was disposed to offer her
services. Her father was.at first inclined to veto the plan, as the young
lady was on a holiday, and was not
very  strong.
Finally,  however,  he  withdrew  his

a! Ottawa this year has been the
format inn of a fishery hoard. Mr, K.
11. Cunningham, fishery inspector,
M.'v,* Westminster, and Mr. Mclntyre
who Is employed by tho provincial
govt rnmeni in lhe fishery depart-
in 'nt, have bi * n nanv -1 as members
of the board for this province.
These gentlemen are undoubtedly
omlnentlj fitted for (be position and
will he able to advise the governraenl
al Ottawa as (o the needs nf the in-
dustr) from time to time, but still
tbere is a general feeling of disappointment, especially among the
fishermen, as it was understood thai
lie department of marine and fisheries at Ottawa was anxious to get Into
touch with the people actually engaged in the business and that the
members of (his board were to l"'
composed of a representative of the
fishermen, the conni rles and the sail
water fisheries.
As Mr. Cunningham is already employed in an advisory capacity to the
government by virtue of his office as
fishery Inspector, it dues nol appear
on  the  surface   very  much  baa been
However, these gentlemen will, no
floubt, be largely guided by the representations made to them hy the fisher-
ir,, i  and others Interesti d.
K is suggested thai the fishermen
appoint a permanent o mmlttee who
will convey to tlie fishery hoard lhe
wishes of the whole body of fisher-
nun as conditions may arise.
Enormous Waste.
Your committee also wish to call
the attention to the very wasteful
methods that have been in vogue in
the salmon fishing industry every big
���or fourth year, and even In the off
years with some varieties of salmon.
It has been the custom of the canneries to limit the catch ef their
fishermen to a certain number of fish
per heat. This system has resulted
In an enormous waste of salmon as
the fishermen aro not always aware
that a limit lias heen declared, and
���even when tliey do know their nets
may contain in one drift two or perl-laps three times as many fish as they
���can sell. Consequently the balance
has to be thrown away.
The Remedy.
To remedy Ibis your committee
���would recommend that either the
fishery board or fishery inspector le'
-empowered, from Ottawa, to open or
close the season at will.
For Instance when the canneries
"hnve ( nough fish on hand tn la*--' them
for 24 hours, instead of limiting the
Catch, the fishing could be stopped
entirely lor a few hours, and these
salmon instead of being caught to he
thrown away would be allowed to pass
np tn the spawning grounds, thus en
soring a future supply and th"
neries would then be sure of getting
fresh fish.
Natural Enemies.
Another mailer that is engaging the
attention of all thinking men eon
necti-d with this industry is to pre
serve the salmon from their natural
enemies, the forces designed by nature
to keep salmon in their proper
-equilibrium  in (lie balance of na'ttre.
It is a well known facl that one
form of nsh feed en another and the
more prolific the more enemies I'
naturally has.
Of the life of thi.' salmon In the
open sea very little is known. In the
mail rs of the surrounding coast nnd
in the rivers and streams where they
spawn we are able lo watch these
forces at work.
The  Dreaded Seal.
In the ease of the full grown salmon
the hairy seal is undoubtedly the
worst enemy  we have  to  deal  with.
Mr. W. A l.nwinan. an authority on
the fishing industry on the other side
of the line, in au open loiter lo tin'
Hen li M. White, chairman cr the
senatorial fish commlasli I states
that there arc at least 30,000 . ols In
Ptiget   sound   and   the   mo��'li
Skagit  river,   nnd   that  seals  di Btroy
at lias!  five salmon each per dav.
Tnis in equally true of the Gulf of
Georgia nnd the mouth of the Fraser
river Mr Halliday, assistant fishery
inspector, called attention to Ihis fact
in his last annual report, and says
lbat something must lie done in the
���near future If we wish to preserve our
salmon from the seala,
What Mr bowman proposes for
Pngot  sound  would be equally applic
able to the Gulf of Georgia, that a
bounty of from $11 to (5 a head for
every hairy seal killed.
Kroui Information secured by your
oommlttee trom fishermen Ihere
seems to be no doubt that they would

tins purpose.

There will in till probability be
some 8500 licenses Issued this year.
if each fisherman wore taxed (2.60
and the provincial and Dominion governments were to contribute like sums
a fund would be raised that could go
towards (be object aimed at.
As regards the spawning grounds of
the salmon so long as predatory fish
as trout, chub nnd sueki rs are allowed, Indeed encouraged, to destroy thu
eggs and fry of the salmon il will In

Kor every salmon egg hutched out

The remedy is simple, net out these

time in a supplementary report
Work  for Executive.
Mr, W. J. Kerr moved a vole of
thanks to Mr. Monk for liis exceptionally good report, It would be n
gooil thing if their executive would
lake il up the first tiling of the year.
The motion was cordially passed.
Lumber Committee.
Mr. .1. T. Kohsnn submitted the report of the lumber committee. lie
said it brought out that the lumber
industry was by a long way the lead
Ing industry of the province and in
some degree was not receiving lhe
consideration   it  ought   to have.
Tiny had passed a resolution suggesting thai tho Dominion, provincial
g vernments end city councils and
Bchool boards Insert a clause in the
specifications of their contracts calling for domestic timber being used of
i annd'an manufacture. Copies of that
resolution bad been sent to all the
Bt aids of Trade throughout the province.

Imported Lumber.
Mr. Ilobson gave the figures of Imported lumber Into Canadi which
allowed an alarming increase fiom the
previous year, lie said that he had
already explained that the American
mills have had practically no trade, er
very small trade, in their own coun
try during  the  past year,
A number Of mills in the Sound anC
Spokane have had very heavy slock ���
aud it was uot a question of profil

They bad to bring in money to their
banks and they put ihe price at tin
figure tbey could sell  it.
lie knew of 1000 cars of lumber
which were sold al (5.50 f.o.b., not
nearly the cost of logs.
It wns a question of America dump
ing their lumber here, it cost from
J10 to $11 a car in freight to send
lumber from bere io Calgary.
There was a tremendous lot ef lumber used ln their public works from
the American side. Kor every 1000
feet of such lumher used they not
only lost stumpage and profits, but
labor valued, approximately, at $7
pi r 1000 foot.

Berlin, Feb. 21. It Is a curious fact
that the golden youth of Berlin at present seems m be afflicted with an extraordinary attack of Anglomania. The '
ailment shows itself in a hundred different ways, and crops up in many
an unexpected corner,
Truth to say, however, tbe leaders
of the movement have nei a very exact idea of what it is that tbey are
trying to copy, and often enough their
idea of what Is English might have
been obtained In Paris, or even Buenos Ayres.
Nevertheless the youth of Berlin
today spends much time and money
on trying to be a "gont."
"Gent" is Indeed the word of the
day,  and   try  as  they   will   those  who 1
know* something better about the Eng
lish  language cannot    persuade    the
young Herliners that gentlemen is a
word and that "gent" corresponds to i
i nothing of any consequence.
Remonstrance is all to no purpose
( and the word "Rent" promises to re
main iu the speech of young Berlin.
; Apparently the mania is penetrating
the real lit * ot the community, and
one may almost bellve the report that

those critics, indeed, now admit that

As  to  the   Zeppelin    airships,    for
