Judge Howay Makes Caustic Comments on Hindu

Last of the Month���MacKenzle
Making Preparations.
The comment or His Honor Judge
Howay Is summing up an alleges
Hindu assault case In the County
Court yesterday should provide considerable food for reflection for all
those who favor unrestricted Immigration of the Bast Indian man Into
The case-was one ln which Harl
Singh, l.al Singh and Ganesha Singh
were charged with having on October
12 assaulted one Shama, also a Hindu
The evidence disclosed the fact that
the case was as His Honor described
It, "purely fictitious" and manufac
tured. The men lived in a shack with
a number of other Hindus and got
wrestling with each other with the re
suit that one got hurt. The evidence
was insufficient to convict and the
men were accordingly dismissed by
��� Judt-e Howay. Before doing so, how
ever. Ills Honor pointed out the. fact
that the Hindus were persistently ap
pearing in couft and their difficulties
most of which were fictitious, were be*-
Ing continually investigated at great
expense to the community.
Speaking last evening to a News
representative His Honor stated that
the case today must have cost at least
$100, The majority of the cases In
which Hindus were concerned were
found to be purely fictitious and <f
things continued as they were at pres
ent some stops should be taken
whereby the people could be saved
from such an expense. The last assizes in which some weeks were taken
un In bearing Hindu caies was a strlk
ing example of the trouble caused bv
the fictitious nature of tbe "ctlor--
brought Into court by these people and
the history of the courts for the last
twelve months made this fact stand
out plainly.

complained of the manufactured cases
brought up by the Hindus.

But, the powers are not tn harmony

It Is understood the powers will

The Impression prevails ln France
that Austria will not demoblllie until
all the delicate Balha^.questions have
been settled. The.presence of. Ser

Needs  Money���Premier Slfton
Returns With $5,000,000.
Montreal, Jan. 8.���Hon. Arthur I..
Slfton, premier of Alberta, arrived
in Montreal this morning on his waj
back to tbe West, after a visit to-Great
Britain ou financial business connected with the Alberta government Accompanying Mr. Bttton Is Mr. M. Mc
Keuzle, the provincial treasurer. These
gentlemen are. returning to Edmonton
���with an addition to the public purse
amounting to $5,000,000 in return for
which they have left I. O. U.'s In London ln the form of Alberta's government bonds.
"The money Is needed," said Mr
Slfton, for "Uie development of our
provincial telephone system. The
telephone is one of the public utilities that Is government owned ln Alberta and we propose very large ex-
tentlona to that system In the near fu
hire. The telephone is also one of the
few government utilities that produces
a profit, for the system is not only
paying for itself, but is leaving a stir
plua over expenses."
Asked if he had heard any complaint In Ixmdon on the . subject of
over-borrowing by Canada municipalities and general business organizations, Mr, Slfton said: "I heard ro
such 8K<-iteition*. The British people
realize," he said, "that tbe enormous
growth of the West requires large
capital sums If the development la to
proceed In a brisk manner. A disposition we notice Is to look for higher
Interest on the money Invested.
he compared the opening by Mayor
I,ee of the Club bowling alleys to the
famous fiddling -of Nero when Rome
was burning. He then started In by
praising the. mayor and announcing
that he had. voted for practically
every member of the present council.
He criticized those who are not candidates tor re-election for leaving
tbelr many important projects before
Switching completely    around,    be
started ln to show that each and all
of them always "speaking advisedly,"
"subject to correction," and "aa a man
on  the  outside, who  really  did  not
know absolutely" were unfit to be ln
charge  of a city's government.    He
accused Mayor L#ee ot being autocratic, more so than even Mayor Keary
whom Mayor Lee accused three years
ago of exercising arbitrary; powers and
favoring the B. C. Electric Railway.
As possible proof of this assertion, he cited some Instances when tbe
mayor  Is  supposed  to  have  ignored
the finance committee of the council
and took the sale of bonds into his
own handa and   called .upon  former
Aldermen Johnston and Bryson to substantiate his statements.   Neither did
so, but Mr. Kennedy was apparently
not disappointed.    He    bad    various
funny (?)  things to say of the I.on
That the ratepayers' money la being squandered by the present administration, and that the affairs of the
city are being conducted In a most uu-
business like manner, were among
the many vetted Insinuations hurled
at those members of the council whb
are candidates for re-electton, at a
fair sized meeting in the opera house
last night, when George Kennedy, J. S.
Bryson, Peter Peebles, J. W. Irwin,
J. B. Jardlne and A. Hogg took turns
In-telling how they would run the city
should a sufficient number of voters
decide to place them ln power next
The  three  last named    were    nol '
guilty of Insinuations but practically
all of the speakers admitted that they
knew almost nothing of  which  they
were talking.   However, each of them
was firmly convinced that upon him
rested the fate of the city, but none
of them dwelt very long on this phase
of  the   subject,   nearly   all   devoting
most of their time to pointing out the
many errors of the present mayor and
council.    Aldermen White and Curtis
were on the platform, Alderman Curtis |
making a short straightforward talk
just before the meeting broke   up.
J. A. Knlblck was chairman of the
meeting   and   after   briefly   outlining
the excuse  for the  gathering,  Intro-  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

disclosures failed to materialize; in
fact, that gentleman's opening speech
was Greek to those who failed to hear
him twelve months ago, while older
residents were merely treated to a
rehash of details concerning the Coqultlam dam project and criticism of
the engineering department. Some
flashes  of  alleged   humor  lit  up  an
blame for net getting as much money
to remedy this. He would also endeavor to see that the city received
full value for every dollar spent. A
short plea to the progressive voters
to support him, ss well as the other
candidates on the labor ticket, concluded his remarks and he gave way
to Mr. .Peebles, who proceeded to
make a complete expose of all the little tricks ln the contracting game.
Having been a contractor himself,
Mr. Peebles waa able to tell the audience a great many Interesting thingB
about tbe business of bidding for city
work. Like Mr. Kennedy be qualified
all his statements by stating that he
was on the outside and only knew
what people on the street were saying.
Peter Peeble's Stand.
The only reason he was running for
alderman was that several announced
their Intention of retiring and there
was some difficulty in finding gcod
men to stand in tbelr places. He modestly admitted that he was peculiarly qunlifid by virtue of having once
been a contractor, and the further
fact that some 34 years ago he sailed
up the Fraser river.
That some of the aldermen changed
their mind was no fault of bis, and
was due to the fact, he said, that the
aldermen were afraid that the labor
men would get in. Should the labor
men not be successful,    they    were
Three Candidates for Counclllarshlp in
East  Burnaby   Working  Over ���
East Burnaby, Jan. 8.���The three
cornered fight for councillor which Is
being waged between Councillor Ma-
dill, ex-Councillor T. D. Coldleutt and
Mr. George H. Leaf, is exciting no little Interest in tbe district and all indications point to one of the closest
elections in tbe history of the municipality.
All three candidates are bard al
work, business cares have been ca3t
aside and there will be no let up until tbe evening of January 81, wben
tbe votes will have been counted.
Two meetings are scheduled for this
week, the first to be held in Foresters'
hall. East Burnaby, on Thursday evening when lt is expected that Mr.
Coldleutt will outline his platform
more concisely while on Friday evening all three candidates will be on
the platform at the North road school
house, near Burqultlam.
The present heavy weather is ham
perlng the movements of the three aspirants who bad figured on cutting up
tbe tine macadamized roads of the
eastern section of Burnaby with their
high power autos, but tbe tank wagon

around Sixth street so there will be

fer  the bonds  which  he  sold   while! afraid that the new   members   might
not be congenial additions to the family. This, he said, was sufficient reason to vote against them. Just for
fear that It's auditors might not think
so, he proceeded to give tbem further

Water, Water Everywhere.
Evidently Mr. Bryson had water on
the brain for while he managed to Insinuate at tbe outset that all was not
as lt should be in matters of civic administration, he returned again and
again to his favorite theme, striving
to bring before his hearers vision of
dams, the credit for whose foundations -upon the solid rock he modestly
ascribed to himself and word pictures
of infamous switches of opinion on the
nent engineers. Throughout tbe latter the flow bf Mr. Bryson's disclosures bore some resemblance to the
part ot Mayor Lee aud various emi-
city water of a. few days ago.
Mr. Bryson wanted to know why the
case pending between the B.C.E.R. and
the city was not settled. He claimed
that bills for $2,000 had been sent to
the council by the lawyer retained In
the case. He promised to settle thc
matter quickly if elected.
Mr. Bryson's opening tirade was directed at the alleged waste ot money
In laying tho pipe trom Coqultlam
dam. "The council appears to glory
ln spending money," he Bald, "and the
papers take that as a criterion ot progress.
How City Slid.
He then passed on to enlighten his
hearers that this year they had
voted some $2,000,000. "It cost $10,-
000 to get it on the London market," h said, "and lt cost $100,000 lu
the slide when we got oft."
Mr. Bryson's opinion ot the Intelligence of the average labor man was
forthcoming when, ln referring to a
recent Inspection of Coqultlam dam,
be stated that tbe delegate from the
Trades and Labor council had badly
disappointed him. He had thought
that this man would have seen things
as they really were, but evidently his
WBGdation with the "monopolists"���
"or as Mayor Lee call them, 'real
estate sharks'���had been too much for
"I advise labor'men," he said, "to
keep away from banquets,, for nine
out of ten of them would be carried
away through association with the
monled classes."
'   Lost His Reason.
He asserted that they would be
doped and described how he had lost
his reason through the popping of
champagne corks.
With a final hint of sediment In the
flow of municipal llge, Ur. Bryson sat
Mr. Irwin nervously read a short
written paper, the principal feature of
which was that he would make no
rash promises as to his actions if he Is
elected, but will do his best Mr. Jardlne waa also brief In his remarks,
perhaps because he had on some previous occasion graced the same platform with Oeorge Kennedy and Peter
Teebles and knew the length of time
necessary to their complete satisfaction.
He criticized the . unbusinesslike
management of the city and thought
that for, every $2 expended only $1
worth of returns was being secured;
He said he believed to progress and
economy, not extravagance, the purchase of $1760 worth ot shrubs which
are lying ln Queen's Park received his
disapproval. He promised to oppose
the proposition of employing day labor In the harbor Improvements and
said he would.work for new fire halls
In Saperton and Queensborough.
A Modern Nere.
George Kennedy got a laugh when-'
tor the weather, and It an administration is to have credit for things which
they may have nothing to do with,
such as good harvests, then they
should take the discredit when tbey |
fell to do something which they might
have done, or which they tried to do
or could not bave done had conditions
been different." All of which was
very enlightening.
He then continued with the statement that Lee has made no formal
report of his trip, but hatr It been successful the last of It would never have
been beard.
That a private firm would soon go
broke If conducted on the same lines
as the city, waa the next startling declaration of Mr. Kennedy, this statement being attributed to a member
of the council- who, he said, also told
him that $11,000 had been lost by the
city in the las,*, year in doing and re-
j doing work. Referring again to
Mayor Lee's autocracy, he told of an
| Instance ln the council when Alderman' Curtis objected to a bylaw being
I read under a suspension of rules arid
| had been promptly -squelched by the
mayor, or to use Mr. Kennedy's own
words, "was actually jumped on with
! both feet" The local papers then
came in for their share of the fun
| for   not having reported the atrocious
' Incident under black headlines.
Doesn't Like Annacis.
He had occasion later to again
refer to the press which he had been
cpmnlimenting In. the opening parts
of his speech, wben he took up the
question of annexing Annacis Island
which waa, brought before' the council
on Monday evening.' He accused the
present council of attempting to initiate this deal In the closing hours of
Its life, and condemned the proposition of the-city agreeing to not raise
taxes for a term of yean.
Alderman White, at the dose of his
speech corrected the speaker and In'
formed him that the matter was first
brought up In a communication to
the council which was treated Just as
any Cther communication would be
treated and on wblch ao action bas
been taken.*
Mr. Kennedy did not seem to blame
anyone In particular tor his next complaint which w*t( that the ojty hid lost
$10,000 In the last year toroegh the
exeptton from taxation of the Canadian Northern railway. He stated
also that next year the Ices to the
city would iamonnt to Wrs*00 aa the
company has acculred additional pro-
petty here. '���' Hfe. did m*. suggest a
remedy for this conditio*, but seemed
to think some one has been at fault tn
allowing.tbe company to buy land In
the city, even If tt waa purchased from
��� Hogg to the Point.
Archibald Hogg, the only one ot the
labor candidates who appeared, made
a short speech whloh took well. His
remarks were clear, free from animus
and to the point He announced at
the outset tbat he would net criticise
any of the present administration aad
any thing he said was Intended
against the system rather than Individuals. The fact that municipally
owned public utilities were run af*
profit instead of being sold to consumers at cost waa the principal theme ot
his discourse. He thought it wrong

help reduce the tales of outside property holders by paying sufficiently

a prospective alderman, but aa a "man
on the street who did not know what
was going on."
Turned Their Heads.
"Did you ever see so many perfectly
good streets torn up?" he asked. He
tben enumerated various streets, most
of them In the Queer's Park district,
which were torn up last summer. Ir,
some places, he said, the city had been
forced to lay three inch planks so that
the traffic could get over the streets.
He did not think that the aldermen
lacked ability but thought their heads
had been turned when th?y were voted
such large sums of money.
Contracts should be called for In
the fall Instead of the middle of summer as at present, the "weather permitting" clause being the one
through whicb the contractors got off.
By calling for bids ln tbe fall, according to the would-be board of works
chairman, there would be time In the
wtntr to sell the bonds, call for and
accept bids, and the work could be
done during the summer months,
Another secret of which Mr. Peebles
thought the council should know, Is
that all contractors add a little something to tbelr bids when there Is a
clause ln the contract making one

One of the most important matters
brought up at the Coast Teachers'
Institute convention held at Victoria
on Monday and Tuesday was a scheme
fer old age pensions introduced, by
-Jr. YV. C'oatham, a delegate from New
Wfeatosiufter. The scheme is modelled
along Ute lines ot live National laaur-
ance Act for workmen recently passed by the British parliament and,
briefly, lt provides that the teacher-,
and the provincial government shall
contribute a certain amount to a fund
which will be used for retiring teachers who have reached iLo age of sixt.
ou a pension.
The idea was heartily endorsed by
the gathering and a committee was
appointed to wait upon tbe provincial
minister cf education at Victoria in
regard to the matter.

Herbert Spencer school, Mr. E. R. McMillan, principal of the High school,

Mr. W. Hi Grieve, when Interviewed
by a News representative last night,
expressed the opinion tbat the convention was of great worth to the 500
delegates from all parts of British Columbia and as far south as Seattle
who attended it.
"Tbe value of the convention," he
stated, "may be summarized in the
following terms: First, it gives the
teachers a larger outlook ln the subject ot education. Second, it enables
the teachers to compare methods of
Instruction. Third, It brings prominently before the public at large how
much education has developed tn Canada within the last few years.''

Scarcely a day goes by without bringing newB of some awful cataBtrophe
at sea, In fact It would seem that the loss of the Titanic was merely the pre
lode to a long chain of marine disasters. On Tuesday thla fact waB brought
home to us by the foundering of the oil tanker, Rosencranz, and by the sinking of tho Cheslakee at Van Anda, a small port on the eaBt side of Toxutla
bland, only a few hours sail from Westminster.
With regard to the latter lt appears that the boat was sufficiently seaworthy to make the long voyage around the Horn from Dublin, where she waB
"built, but on arrival out here her upperworks In the shape of cabins and deck
accommodation were added so that she has frequently caused passengers a
scare alike on account of her tendency to roll at a dangerous angle and of
Iter slowness ln recovery.
While the official enquiry will doubtless elucidate the true cause of the
"vessel's sinking, It is worthy of note that a little over a year ago the Iroquois,
swlth a heavy deck load, rolled^over in a squall and many lives were then lOBt.
As we pointed out when referring to the experience of the Burin which,
tor two days and nights last November drifted about helpless and unaided in
the gulf, both thc men who use our coastal waters and the makers of the laws
governing those men and their ships have need to keep tn mind the fact that
the sea is the sea always.
This is the time of stormy weather and the waters of the Gulf of Georgia
are quite as dangerous as the high seas to craft which in many cases appear
from their top hamper to be better fitted for river work than for navigating
anything like the sea.
People forget so quickly the lessons which accidents would point out In
grim fashion, but both from shipwrecks on the coast and from other omissions
concerning navigation, there appeara to be room for Improvement in the
chipping regulations. In many departments of public endeavor the coast communities have shed the machinery which sufficed for the direction of their
energies some twenty years ago, but In otherB we are still plodding along with
the Euits we have outgrown.
The destiny ot New Westminster, of Vancouver, of Victoria, is intimately
bound up with the sea, and it is a vital matter with us that our marine reputation should be ot the best. Every wreck or disaster In our waterB Is heralded far from here and in Influential circles where news of our triumphB perhaps never penetrates.
Therefore, if for no other reason, no effort should be spared to have everything pertaining to our Bhlpping so regulated that the chances of disaster
may be reduced to the minimum.
manhood he was a railway ticket inspector, "from his youth he was a Re-
publican and an anti-cleric. He took
part ln the Zorllla revolution, and for
years in Paris.
In the City of Light he found many
kindred spirits, among them Mile.
Ernestine Mounler, a convert to many
advanced ideas. When she died she
left part of her fortune to Ferrer, and
this provided him with an income of
J7600 a year. He returned to Spain
to become an advocate of education
for the mas��es, with the ultimate object of overthrowing the monarchy
and founding a republic on its ruins.
He taught that only through popular
education could republican Ideals be
realized, and that force was worEe
than futile.
It has been alleged that Ferrer,
while preaching against capitalism,
himself lived the life of a capitalist,
but this Is denied by William Archer,
the English author and critic, who
spent several months ln Spain Investigating the Ferrer case. Mr. Archer
"Though now a rich man, he Is no
way changed tho Blmple style of his
living. Hla farmhouse at Mongat
would, ln a colder climate, be reckoned
little better than a hovel. In Paris he
stayed at tho most humble hotels; In
London at a middle-class boarding
house. Nothing can be further from
the truth than the legend which pictures him living ln luxury on the
spoils of his hypocrisy."
Similar testimony as to Ferrer's
who has written a biography of the
habits of life are given by Joseph Mc-
Cabe, the English scientist and author,
Spanish teacher. "A fanatic, but
never a hypocrite," sums up Mr. Archer's opinion of Ferrer. Mr. McCabc
is more enthusiastic in his praise of
Ferrer, and describes him as one of
the greatest teachers of modern times,
"a noble spirit who will yet be acclaimed as the savior of Spain."

General Jack Frost
Defeated Napoleon
It is 111 years since we last had a
hard winter, says Answers. There has
not been - fortnight's skating on end
in the South if England since 1894-5.
Rain, gloom, log, sometimes a halfhearted attempt at snow have been
our winters ever since.
Weather experts declare that another big cold snap Is due, and they
point to 1879, when a summer exactly
like the deplorable one of 1912 was
followed by weeks on end of bitter
frost and whirling snowdrifts.
If It comes���if the yea-- 1912 Is going to renew the old-time tradition of
hard winters���It will add lust one
more to a long train of really amazing
coincidences. For the fact ts that
there has hardly ever been a European
war on a big acale In wbtch General
jack Frost has not taken a band.
Oo back a century. 181$ was the
year wben Napoleon' made up hla mind
to Invade Russia. Before starting he
was careful to enquire of the experts
. at what data winter usually set in in
Southern Russia. They told him ln
the middle ot December.
It was on June $4 that he Invaded
Russia with $00,000 men, and he
reached Moscow on September 14.
That night fire broke out, and wltbin
five days the city was burnel to the
ground. Even then he remained until
Oct 1$ before commencing his retreat
In the last week Of October, began
the wont frost which Europe bad
known tor three generations. The
Thames frose from lu source to the
sea, The Seine, the Rhine, the Danube were all loe-bound. On the Adriatic, off Venloe, was seen the amaslng
sight of .floating ice floes. The Hellespont and the fHrdsnelles wer

men, and of theee only 12 per cent,
fell In battle. The rest were destroyed by cold and disease, aggravated by a rotten commissariat.
In 1870 came the biggest war of the
latter half of the nineteenth century,
the titanic conflict between Franco and
Germany. By Oct 29 there were
850,000 German troops In France,
Paris was beseiged, and there began
the four months' Investment, with furious fighting oo both sides. Again
Jack Frost came to the aid of the

made life almost Impossible for the
half-starved French, while the Germans, who bad the whole country to
draw on, besides their own excellent
commissariat, suffered very little. By
January the city was ln such a ter

The date of the last great war In
which Turkey was engaged waa 1877.
The Turks were attacked by an enormously super'or force of Rusclans

they carried three lines of Russian

and forced by enormously superior
numbers to surrender unconditionally.

at the offices of the attorney general, there being In attendance Hon. Mr.
Bowser, Superintendent Colin S. Camp

of a private nature, but It is regarded' as altogether probable that a special assise will be ordered for the
trial of the Indian outlaws.
Bill Will Be Presented to Legislature
at Coming Session���No Dark.
Victoria, Jan. 8.���A bill to provide
for the Inspection and regulation of
moving picture shows will be brought
before the Legislative by the attorney-
general at the approaching session.
Hon. Mr. Bowser haa been engaged
for some time ln looking into the matter, and has secured copies of the acts
and regulations now in force ln the
province ot Ontario and Manitoba. He
has also written to the Inspectors ln
these provinces to ascertain how the
law works ln actual practice.
The intention Is tbat the films to
be' exhibited in Brlsish Columbia shall
be first brought to some central point

Victoria, Jan. 8.���Official announcement Is expected during the present
week of a rearrangement of government agencies, which will bring that
veteran of the service, Mr. John Klrk-
up, from Rossiand to the coast, to
succeed Mr. H. Q. Rayson aa representative of tbe Crown ln the Albernl
district, Mr. Rayson being transferred to Golden, and Mr. Kirkup being
succeeded  by   Mr.  H.  R.  Townsend.
Mr. Kirkup, during a Visit here in

Premier McBrlde that he be moved
to the coast, and assurance was given
him tbat his wishes would be met

The new Albernl, agent has been

It was during C. P. R. construction

along the line of construction. On

There are thousands of ways of'advertising���some good,
some bad, some indifferent.
You naturally want the best value possible for the money
you spend in advertising in 1913.
You cannot do better than follow the example of the men
who are spending the largest amount of money f or publicity.
They have made a scientific study of thc business of advertising in all its phases and KNOW positively from results secured
what method brings in the best returns for the money.
The largest tftores-and the ireatest advertisers���always
have 'he daily newspaper first ou the list, and their advertising
appropriations art spent almost entirely in buying newspaper
���The reason is plain. The daily paper goes into the home
every day. The prospective customer is reached quickly, and has
no chance to forget about your store.
People BUY the daily paper and READ it Circulars and
the multitude of free advertising literature distributed free do not
receive the sane attention. They ure forgotten in a day and have
nothing following after to keep up the interest

Twelve Monster Battleships In  Hand
For Royal Navy Alone���Shortage,
of Labor.
London, Jan. 8.���Thc present year
will see a record In Urliish warship
building. The naval dockyards' ah'u
groat shipbuilding firms have already
twelve battleships und battleship
cruisers in hand for the navy apaft
from vessels nearly completed.
In addition there arc bIx battleships
or battleship cruisers building In ngE
land for foreign powers. If ten new
ships are ordered this year, as is expected, there will twenty-eight ar
iimurvd ships of the largest size build
ng in this country with a displace
ment of over B50,0;)0 tons.
The completion of tbls enormous
fleet with speed will demand most
careful organization, it Ib rumored
that there must be .serious delays In
construction. Already the re'eont British programs are heavily In arrears.
The difficulty which confronts both
dockyards and private firms is to ob-
talii the skilled labor required for
ship construction. There Is an Insufficiency of workers at the dockyards
where day and night shifts, as well
as overtime, are being" worked./ All
indications suggest that thc admiralty
will .have ��� to revise its calculations
that the largest battleship can be
built In  two years.
Cardiff shipowners are rejoicing in
prcsnerous times. It is estimated
c-jtv; AH oUierbig cities have! that five hundred vessels which brlons
- to that port earned a clpur profit of
nearly $2,&00,00Q in IP 12. Besides
these, Evans. ThomaB, Radcllffe and
Company, with thirty vessels, mad?
a profit of $1,500,000; W. J. Tatcm
and Company, with twenty steamers
a profit ot $1,055,000; and W. and C,
I. Jones, Limited with eleven ships,
a profit of $('40,000.
There la every liklihrcd thnt thc
nourishing conditions In the English
shipping industry will oontlnne. One
���hlnowner has refused an offer of
$120,000 for a steamer of about 4,800
tons deadweight, which he bought
about three years for $8o.00n A'
steamer of 6000 tons which cost $150"-
000 was completed not long ago, and
on nn average made prcftt of $500
per day.
Tonnage is still in demand, but the
shipbuilders are not accepting delivery. Prices are abnormally hitch, in
fact, such has been the advance in
values that a vessel of 7,500 tonB now

Another reform1, which ho would
carry through, would be the paving
of streets their entire length to connect with adjoining municpalitles.
Dralntess Creatures.
"New Westminster has never had
a council with brains enough to start
a street in the right place," eald Mr.
The many discrepancies ln the cost
of paving the streets came In for con
slderable attention, and various figures were quoted to show that the
contractors practically run the bids
and get any price they want except in
rare Instances where only one small
piece of work is dope. In which case
they actually bid against one .another.
Tbat Point Grey is paying only $1.65
for Bltulithic paving, while this city
is charged $2.rr. per square yard, was
another charge, but this was not blamed on tbe "contractors' trust" particularly.'
.The proposal to do the work on the
water front by day labor instead of
ssontrcct, Mr. Peebles deemed merely
a nfKterfugfl to capture tho labor vote
of Ihe city. Even If it were done, hit-aid, citizens would not get the benefit. I("reeks and other foreign fabor
would be imported, and he favored ad-
vwtlslna the city as one where nb
labor of this kind la employed. He
asked why, If day labor Ih practical
on this job, it Is not also practical bti
all city work.
More Flagrant Omissions.
The purchase of a cement testing
machine Is another flagrant omission
of the
them, he said, and cement which
would not be accepted by them Is Bent
to yVi>i tmlnster. It costs the city
about $1000 per year through this poor
quality cement. The poor contractors
again came In for reference, this time,
however only as an authority, the audience being referred to them for corroboration.
The fact that $30,749 has been paid
out in salaries through the city engineer's office laBt year waa not entirely approved, although Mr. Peebles
naiil this Included the services of Harbor Engineer Powell an dothers he did
not know. The speaker struck a snag
���when he began to be more explicit
and charged \he authorities with furnishing the wrong HneB to the contractors, making it neccBsary to do
the. work over again. Second street
was particularly mentioned, where
polos had to be moved, at a coot to the
city of $11,000. The sidewalk near
Mr. Brymner's house had to be moved
he Bald, on this account.
Not Quite Correct.
Alderman Curtis, who with Alderman White, was on the platform, remarked that this was a mistake on the
part of the contractors and the work
would be done by them at their own
expense. The other remarkB of Mr.
Peebles were along the name lines.
he said, and were just about ao near
the correct facts.
Advocacy of thc return of the ward
system of electing aldermen, and ai
attack  of the  temporary  loan   bylaw
took up the rest of Mr. Peebles' time.
This wax the last of    tbe    regular
speakc rs,  aud  Alderman  Curtis  then .
was called upon.    He announced that I
tie wan retiring em��� fit*- <-nim*t" fW- '
lrils own comfort, and lapsing Into Bars-asm, "for your benefit."    He said he
was  not  completely    satisfied     with
everything that had happened in the
last year, but added that he has never
yet seen a man who was satisfied with
everything.    He criticized the speakers for introducing ln their speeches
ancient history which has nothing to
do with the present campaign .
Truth   About  Lake.
Hei-Tring to Mr. Bryson's remarks
about the Coqultlam lake project, he
announced   that   neither  himself  nor
anyone else could get the Vancouver
Power   company   off   the   lake.     The
council, he said, has not yet reached
the stage where they are prepared to
sign an  agreement but are ln better
shape to proceed than ever before.
Mr. Bryson, said Alderman Curtis,
���will never accomplish anything by the
tactics started, as he had found that
the only way ia which he could do any-
-wrong way but by working in harmony
thing was not by rubbing men th>-
with them and that Mr. Bryson would
sdlscover the  same thing.
Tbe people, ho said, have nothing
to be alarmed about in the water situation, nor any other acts of the council. He said he did not remember
.making the statement that the present
eouncll Ib the brainiest on record, but
.did say that while the present council has no monopoly on brains, the addition of the men sitting on the platform behind him would not Improve
matters any, though lt would probably
.not hinder them.
Mr, Costworth Speaks.
Just as the meeting was about te
break up, Mr. Moses B. CotBworth
Jumped up and asked why the civic
meeting had not been called earlier.
He was asked to* the platform, and
took exception to having the meeting
at the eleventh hour, when there w.u
not time enough between then an"
election to properly discues the mat
ter* brought up.
He'also suggested thnt arra-ir-c.
ment* he made with the bank to takr
care of a temporary overdraft to dr
away with the temporary loan bylaw.
Alderman Curtis explained that thc
accounts of the city could not be
wound up until Dec. 31 and It required
some Utile time to pet them ln shane
for presentation V- the peoplp and the
meeting could not therefore be held at
an earlier date.

to make ice cream. The fish is caught

Going to the zoo and the circus and

of the forest and jungle, one is Impressed by their power and apparent
ferocity. It Is therefore somewhat of
a shock to our preconceived notions
of these animals on finding tbat when
on their, native heath they are not
nearly bo. ferocious or formidable aa
they appear when In captivity.
The opportunity to see them at
home, so to speak, is afforded by the
motion pictures taken during the expedition organized by Paul J. Kainey.
These pictures will be exhibited and
described at the Opera House for the
remainder of the week, beginning today.
At a waterhole in the midst of the
African' wilderness tbe spectator
looks upon the gathering of beasts
unequalled by any zoo. It took six
weeks of constant watching to get
the films, and on them appear ele-
nhants, a whole family of them, large
and small; a wonderful pair of giraffes; pretty striped zebras; many rh-
Inocerl; as well as other beasts.

No Longer Do Christians Wear Mussulman  Fez���Scenes In Transformed Salonlca.
Salonica, Jan. 8.���Salonlca Is a very
different trom what it was a few
months ago under Turkish rule.
Crowds of people everywhere fill the
narrow streets of the old town and
line the thoroughfares of the new one.
Soldiers, Bulgarians, Serbs and Greeks
promenade the public squares or sit
in the windows of the coffee houseB.
The men In the crowd are nearly all
As soon as Salonlca was occupied
by the Greek army the non-Turks
threw away the fez, the visible sign
that stamped them Turkish subjects.
\11 the hats In the town were soon
bought up, and those who could get
none���and there were many���prefer
to go bareheaded rather than re-assume the fez.
The older Christian churches, St.
Sophia, St. Dlmltrlos, and St. Georges,
which had been mosques for over 400
years, have been consecrated again
as Christian churches by the Metropolian Bishop of Athens, who followed the King hither. The ceremony
took place a few days ago, and was
attended with as much statllness and
splendor as the delapltated state or
the churches and the accumulated dirt
of ages would allow. Tho Bi'lgarlai*
and Serb clergy took part in the procession.

never forbidden the worship at th?
shrine of St. Dimltries; by paying a
small entrance fee the devoted were
permitted to enter. This fee was ever
a source of not-to-be-despised revenue
of the mosque.
This consecration of the churches
���was rather a precipitated affair caused by the fact that a detachment of
Bulgarians had taken up their quarters inside the church, and to prevent
any misunderstanding in thp future

London, Jan. 8.���Persistent efforts
are being made to get some reliable
information about the unofficial inquiry that Mr. Lloyd George has Eet
on foot with the scarcely-concealed
object of discovering material on
which to base an attack on landed
property and landlords.
The public knows that the Com-
ittee was appointed with the approval
of the Prime Minister, and that the
Government saw the questions which
form the bnsis of a secret Inuqiry. But
Mr. Asqulth says that the Government
is in no way committed to anything
that Is reported or recommended, and
last night the Lord Chancellor declared emphatically that no one has any
right "to make these Inquiries on behalf of the Chancellor of the Exchequer in his official position."
Yet scarcely five minutes before he
had laid down the impossibility of
"disassociating entirely. Mr. Lloyd
George from his official position:"
While, however, leaders and followers of the government are darkening
counsel in parliament, the scret In
'iniry is going on all over the country.

We are more or leas familiar, said
a well-known brain specialist, with
the ordinary cases of Bleep-walking,
which are probably as old as humanity Itself. But the startling forms It
has taken in recent years are little
known to the public at large, as they
are myBtenous and uncanny even lo
men like myself, whose business it is
to Btudy the vagaries of the brain.
These new and amazing manifestations of somnambulism are probably
the result of the severe strain put on
the brain by the almost ceaseless high
pressure at which it has to work; but,
whatever the cause, it is a fact that
there are hundreds of people today
who often do ln their sleep, while
absolutely unconscious, all and even
more than they can do when awake.
Only last week a lady came to consult me about her son, whose doings
were causing her great alarm. He Is
a young painter of considerable promise, and is engaged on a picture for
next year's Academy. Night-after
night, his mother told me, he would
leave his bed, go to his studio and
paint away at his canvas for hours
at a time, and every morning he
amazed at the progress of hla plctur"
and the good work that had mysteriously been put Into It. He had no
recollection whatever of having dom
the work himself, and refused to be-
lltve his mother when at last she ventured to tell him the truth.
In another case a lady artist of my
acquaintance had been commissioned
to paint a portrait of herself for one
of her patrons, but the result was so
disappointing that she was driven to
the verge of dlspalr. One night she
left her bed, put on her dressing gown
and taking a mirror with her went
to the studio, where she worked with
feverish haste for some hours. Her
husband, awaking, missed her, and going In search of her, found her ln the
studio but was afraid to wake her.
The following morning the lidv was
considerably astonished to find her
task completed with a skill which she
had never attained before. She had.
as she said, when her husband told
her the truth, painted far better In
her sleep than when awake.
Almost, more remarkable Is another
case which was brought to mv notice
last year. An author had been re-
nnested to write an article on a very
difficult subject. He tried again and
again, and each time with such poor
results that he flung his manuscript
on the fire. At last he was obliged
to confess to the editor that the task
was beyond him.
A few days later he was amazed
to receive a note from the editor
thanking him in mo3t complimentary
terms, for the very' article he had
been unable to write. Naturally he
thought the editor was "pulling his
leg." But no such thing. On going
to the office the mysterious article
was produced, In his own handwriting,
and, as he confessed, it was quite the
J best piece of work he had ever done, i
*0   had   oo   rssoolleotlon   whatever     of
bavin; written tf, ntiit there Is nn
loi.bt that he must not only have written It. but posted It in his sleep.
Net long ago I had a patient to
whom such a feat, as this would have
seemed commonplace. He was a clever composer, and he told me for
"���'ears that most of his work had been I
done in his sleep: so much so that
he rarely ever tried to work during
hla waking houM. Morning after
morning, he said, he opened his eyes j
'o see on the table by his bedside
pages of music which he had compos-1
ed during the night, and not a note
of which he remembered writing. If
he wished to compose a song he would
Btudy the words carefully, and com-1
mit them to memory just before retiring, and almost Invariably the finished composition greeted him
when he awoke. This man was highly neurotic, abnormal in many ways,
ind I was not at all surprised when
at last hlsb rain gavew ay altogether.
But there are many quite sane, even
orosalc people who have this myBter-
'ous gift of unconscious brain work.
There Is (I fancy he is still alive) a
vicar in the Midlands who would fre-
luently rise in the middle of the night
and Bit down to write a sermon.
When his work waa finished, he would
put on his vestments, mount a chair
and deliver his homily, with appropriate intonation and gesture Just
as if he. were In the pulpit.
That he could not see his manuscript was obvious; for once, when
some blank pages' were put Into his
hand in place of his manuscript, he
declaimed his sermon word tor word
Just the same���and this although his
memory was so poor that he invariably read his sermons in church.
A similar case Is that ot a rising
young barrister, who, after reading
his briefs for the next day, would retire to bed, and would get up in the
middle of the night, open his cases.
i ind examine and cross-examine lm-
! aginary witness, exactly as If he

used to spend hours during the .night

wire told me, played far more brilliantly when asleep than at any other

Wonderful Discovery.
London, Jan. 8.���The Royal Astro
nomlcal Society haB Just entered Into
posBeBSlon of an Interesting relic. It
la a piece of the apple tree which grew
In Sir Isaac Newton'B garden, and the
falling of the fruit from which sug
gested to him the Idea of gravitation.
Seldom, indeed, has a relic of such Interest been so clearly authenticated.
Mr. Charles William Walker tells thc
story of the tiny log, which now reposes ln a glass case at Burlington
"It ia," he says, "a piece of the apple
tree at Wolsthorpe, the home of Sir
Isaac Newton. The history of this
piece of wood and the way In which I
came to have It ia as follows:
"My father, Richard Walker, was
bom at Bradmere, Nottinghamshire,
at the Manor farm there in 1807. He
went to school when he was 10 or 12
years of age, to a clergyman at Stoke,
Lincolnshire, named Pearson. My
father told me that while he was at
school there was a very wild storm
one night, and that In the morning
news same that 81r Isaac Newton'r
apple tree had been blown down at
Woolsthorpe. The schoolmaster, Mr.
Pearson, and several of the boys ai
once set off for Woolsthorpe, where
81r Isaac Newton's house was, and
which is not far from Stoke, which is
on the Lincolnshire side of Belvoir
"When they arrived there they saw
the old apple tree lying on the ground.
It had been propped up, all round, for
very many years, and every effort hod
been made to preserve It.
"My father said he did not know by
what authority Mr. Pearson acted, but
the schoolmaster obtained a caw from
somewhere and pawed a gord any
logs of wood from the hrancher.' M;'
father got one of these plecca, which
he always kept as being of very great
interest. Many times he was auk d to
part with It, but he always re.'ised.
My father showed the piece of ..nod
to me and told me nil the clr'-um
stances under which he grt it. There

The piece of weed Is about two and
a half incbcB In diameter and three
Inches ln width. It looks a'.logthor
unlike the wotd cf an apole tree, but
at Kew, where lt hap been microscopically examined, its character was vindicated, and It was prcr-cd unquestionably to be part of an apple tree.

Northern Construction Company WI1I
'W BuHd Line to Stsveston.
Atfs-J-ttifer step towards the development ot Uilu Island which will effect
Nevr Westminster to a great extent,
has been made this week by the Canadian Northern railway when a contract for the construction of the West-
mlnster-Steveston line wa* let to the
Northern Construction Co., which
-is a- sub-ridinry of the railway company.    ,
The line Is expected to be completed
by June of. this year and considering
the fact tljHt, a portion of the survey
carries the line over muskeg, lt will
mean a large force of workmen to
complete the, line In five months.
Tho work of bringing John Macna-
mara, alleged to have been ono of the
gang which robbed the Bank of Montreal ln this city on Sept. 14. 1911.
back 1o this city from New York, will
likely be can-led out by the Pinkerton
Detective Agency, according to Mr.
W. H. G.iPhlpps, caBhior of the banking institution.
Papers are being made out both in
this city and In New York and once
'.hese have arrived in Albany. N.Y.,
fnr the signature of Governor Suiter,
Macnaroara will start on his journey
across the continent to face trial ln
this city.
Since he was arrested In January of
last year, Mcnamara has been lying
in the Tombs, the famous prison in
New York. .
Holiday   Conditions   Still   Exist   and
Regular Staff Are Having Hard
Time   Handling   Mall.
Though the staff has been reduced
again to its normal size the receipt
of Christmas mall continues at th<
postofflce with only a slight abatement and > nsequentry the staff is
worked to the limit To make conditions Bllghtly worse three members
of the staff, two Inside men and one
outside man have been taken 111, no
doubt on account of the heavy strain
put upon them at Christmas time and
the Inclemency of the. weather. Despite the misfortune the majl Is being handled well up to time and a satisfactory delivery service is being
maintained right along.
Postmaster McDonald Is strong In
his expreBion of appreciation of the
work of the staff during the general
holiday rush. "The men worked exceedingly hard," ho said, "and I have
not even heard a grumble."
Wr. McDonald Is awaiting with anxiety some d finite announcement from
Ottawa as to the proposed'extension
to the postofflce building. It is understood that an appropriation for a
four storey addition to the building
will be made in the 1913 estimates but
there is an Imperative need for more
floor space at the present time.
The postmaster is somewhat ftir-
priBed that the business of tbe ofrice
has been so large of late despite the
fact that the month of January is now
welt opened and he can only ascribe
the situation to the Increase in population which has occurred during the
past year.

of a report from the chief license inspector that It was not being conducted properly, waa renewed last night
by the license commissioners. It was
explained tbat tbe hotel had changed
hands since the suspension and therefore the commissioners thought fit to
renew the license in the name of Geo.
Smedley, the new proprietor.
Mr. Smedley, who was present, was
warned by Chairman Mayor Lee tha'
the hotel must be conducted in    the
larger  crews  of  men   in  thc   manu
facture of the excluders.
The patent for the excluder was
secured about 18 months ago by Mr.
Clarence Ackerman, of thiB city. He
later sold hlB patent rights to the
B.C. Brass Works, who immediately
began preparations for the manufacture and sale. The patent is to prevent drafts from coming in under
doors. It is said that tinder the average door Is from * to 7 square incites
