few years ago.
The rase concerns, nominally, two
lots In Port Mann, but on the final decision hinged other claims.

in Vancouver, and at the time that
the Initial boom came for Port Mann
after the Interviews given out through
the press by Sir Donald Mann and
Sir William Mackenzie, Alexander secured 1000 acres clOBe ln to the railway property, and thus Immensely
valuable If all expectations were realized ln the matter of the erection of

purchase being thus $250,000. Later
Mr. Alexander disposed of the southern 100 acres which lay on a slope at
a price of $1000 an acre and It Is with
part of this property that the action

Washington, Dec. 2.���Without formal action the Democrats of the senate
today put into operation the drastic
program tbey have adopted for the
consideration of the American currency bill. The Republicans, after two
hours of debate, prevented a vote on
a motion calling at once for continuous sessions of the senate daily from
10 o'clock In the morning until 11
o'clock at night, with a two hour dinner recess, but the majority pressed
the bill forward at every opportunity
and kept the senate in seasion tonight.
When Senator Kern presented a
resolution which would have bound
the senste to the proposition to sit
13 hours a day, the Republicans made
a vigorous protest, declaring that
sueh action wa* unnecessary and
would prevent intelligent discussion
ot the bill.
Senator Norrls tried to bring sbout
an agreement for shorter daily session*, wltk an agreement to vote on
the bill by December 20, but thla waa
defeated. The Kern resolution went

bery began. In the morning one of

firing a revolver close to his head,

The boy was remanded and will

A few weeks ago the city of San Francisco awoke to
a realization of the fact that it had a lot of civic bonds on
its hands that needed to be sold. The directors of 'Frisco's
civic destiny put their heads together and out of the conference developed a local bond sale movement that resulted in almost two million dollars' worth being taken up by
citizens of the Golden Gate.
The San Francisco affair demonstrates two things:
One is that where there is a will there's a way and the
other is that if a town has some civic pride it will make
good, and make very good when it has a whole assortment
of first class natural resources behind it.
Leaving San Francisco and coming north to New
Westminster, it is found that this town has unsold bonds
totalling $1,482,788.00, of which nearly two-thirds are five
per cents., the balance being four and one-half per cents.
Some of these bonds have been hypothecated to the bank
to keep the civic treasury chest from forgetting altogether
what rearmoney looks like, but some are still unencumbered and, if reduced in denomination, it is a safe bet that
there is enough civic pride in New Westminster, also
enough private coin lying idle on deposit in the local banks,
to take up a good amount of the unsold paper.
If the city will reduce the size of some of its unsold
bonds���which, it is said, can be done without difficulty
with the consent of the lieutenant-governor-in-council���
to denominations small enough to place them within reach
of the ordinary man, The News is prepared to do everything in its power to help dispose of the paper locally. As
a starter, here is a suggestion for a campaign: First get
the bonds down to handling size so that a salaried man
can touch them; secure a couple or more first-class stock
salesmen for canvassing; give each man, woman and child
who buys some of the paper a button showing that the individual is doing his or her share to help this town along;
talk, think, eat and boost the sale of the bonds for about
four weeks in a whirlwind campaign that will raise the
grass roots and it's pretty nearly a cinch that the result
will show more civic pride in New Westminster and more
loose coin lying about for a worthy object than most people dream of.
The experiment looks to be worth a trial for more reasons than one. The first is that the city needs the money
and another is that this town might just as well demonstrate now that it has the vim and ginger to make and keep
it the place it claims to be.

London, Dec. 2.- Is the suffragette
movement gaining or losing ground?
Thn question is often asked, and it is
very difficult to give Han answer, but
it is probabiy safe to say that no real
headway is perceptible. The answer
will be better given when there is
some real sign of the bulk of women
throughout the country demanding the
suffrage as a right. At .present there
exists nothing of the kind.
Meantime we have the same old
agitators adopting the same old policy
with the same old results. There are
occasional assaults on ministers, very
occasional attempts to burn houses,
and more or less frequent meetings in
districts where the women know they
nre certain to have a favorable reception, such as at Bow and Bromley,
where Mr. Lansbury. their chief supporter. Is a tower of strength. Then-
are still a few Interruptions at. public
meetings and there are still a few arrests by the police under the cat-and-
mouse act. Hut it Is doubtful whether
there are more than 250 militant suffragettes In the country, and thc
clearest sign of female public opinion
can be gathered from the attitude of
M P.'s. If these thought there was
any disposition on the part of women
generally to demand the vote they
would lose r,n time in jsupnyrtipg tilt

unwise thing, considering the conditions. There was no telling what
might have happened If he had fired

fearful occurrence might have beeu
Israel 1. Rubnowitz delivered an address on behalf of the three other licensed, Cowler, Griffiths and Hoy.
Court Sums up.
In summing up Mr. Justice Morrison
directed the jury to bear in mind the
two charges against the accused. One
was for assaulting and doing bodily
harm to Taylor and the other was for
assaulting a police constable during
fhe -performance of bis duties. This
was not an occasion on wblch an assault could be committed by anyone
who did not come Into contact with the
constable unless It was shown that
there was a design to perpetrate assault
The lury must Say If the crowd had
any common design. The jury must
be prepared to aay from the evidence
whether or not Constable Taylor wee
���r apprehensive. Was he justified
tn drawing bis gun? In the opinion
of the court it waa only reasonable
that any person should go to great
leagttie So wre-vent another from using
a gun. Taking each of the aeven accused separately hla lordship found
that there was no evidence againat
BelraTIo to Justify conviction while
there wna not a particle of evidence
against Griffiths to show that he committed aaaault
Dealing with Tony Jackson and Monaldi hla lordship stated there was
aome mhrap aa to fhe parte theee two
took In tbe disturbance This muat
be cleared by the Jury. The jury must
alao decide whether Balrd took part
In the asaault or -not. Chief Neen
testified that be did not aee Balrd
touoh Taylor.
lt Hoy'a atory waa to be believed
tben there waa no evidence against
him. As to Cowler hla lordship sdvls-
ed, after reviewing the evidence
wherein Cswler waa mentioned, that if
there waa any reaaonabto doubt tbat
Cowler committed the aaaault. then

Hindus complain of being Ill-treated In
Lord Hirdlnge. viceroy mt India, in

the mines, associated   himself   with
urging the advisability of a committee
of investigation on which the Hindus
sbould be represented. He said he
did not believe a poll tu on Hindus
entering 8outh Africa served ��y useful purpose.
In South Africa the Hindu immigration problem is looked upon as a purely domeetlc one and sny interference
by the Imperial authorities will be resented. The attitude of the marquis
adds to tbe gravity ot the situation
and it Oreat Britain makes aay concrete demands things stay become
very awkward.
Lord Hardlnge's championship of
Hindus in South Africa haa had a
great effect In India, where, according
to an eminent Hindu, "It haa transformed Indignation and reeentment
lato hopefulness aad truat"
"Danger has been averted," he oo*
tlnued "and eoafldence arooaed Tk*

groat degree of sobriety among the
people, while In 1834, lt is estimated
���45,000,000 gallons of alcohol were consumed  In  Sweden alone
These systems take their nameB
from tlie towns from whicb tliey originated: C.otbi .iberg, in Sweden, and
Bergen, In Norway. The Bergen system is practically the same aB the
other with a few modifications. The
object of the systems Is to eliminate
from the traffic the Incentive of gain,
and therefore tho whole control of the
llnuor traffic Is placed In the handB of
the companies composed oT temperance people who "monopolize' 'the traffic, turning over the profits to the
government and tho municipality.
The municipalities determine tho number of licenses In each town, and the
companies pledge themselves to carry
on  the  traffic  In  tho publlc  Interest.
