was nothing for it but to run. They
ran and were run to earth in the cabin,

police officers could not approach within
firing distance. Their apprehension,
however, is only a matter of time.

Social Notes
Mr. and  Mrs.  A.  Erwin  McMaster
returned hy the Prince George today
from a trip to the East.
There have been several small entertainments given this week in honor
of Miss Mason of Vancouver.
The following patronesses will receive
Thursday evening at the reception to
be given by the Daughters of the
Empire, in the Kaien Island Club
Rooms; Mrs. Naden, the vice-Regent
of the Chapter; Mrs. V. W. Smith;
Mrs. Barrow and Mrs. McMullin. The
following gentlemen have consented
to act as stewards: The Acting Mayor,
Mr. V. W. Smith; Mr. McMullin; Dr.
Tremayne; Mr. Christie; Mr. Barrow;
Mr.   Naden;    Mr.   Clancy   and   Mr.
Munro,
their being kissed, unless the kiss is
dropped upon the little rose-leaf hand.
Kissing, indeed, has its hygienic perils,
and no one who remembers the practice years ago in vogue among familiar
friends, of kissing in public and on the
street and at every practicable opportunity, can help rejoicing that a warm
handclasp has superseded the kiss.
State Gowns of the Queen
The Queen, who has alwayB taken
considerable interest in everything to
do with the trades of England which
employ women, has given signal evidence of her approval by deciding to
have all her State gowns made in England from English material* and by
English hands.
She has made a study of the conditions of their life, and it is characteristic of her thoughtful knowledge that
her orders have been given long beforehand, so that the utmost benefit
may be reaped by the workers and
that her dresses will cause no overtime
work.
An English designer, who bids fair
to rival some of his famous Paris contemporaries, has been honored by the
commission, and it is expected that
he will evolve gowns worthy of the
wearer and occasions.
The gown for the opening of Parliament haa been chosen and several
evening and day dresses and cloaks.
While the various details have not
all been settled, it is understood that
thc Princess style is to be invariably
followed.
Very beautiful as to material and
simple as to line the most wonderful
embroideries, by English workers, arc
to be lavished on these gowns.
Such approval by the Queen will
no doubt give a great impetus to English
materials and English work.
A New Parlor Game
"Each player is requested to close
his eyes for a moment," says Mary
Dawson in Woman's Home Companion,
"and a card with the name of some
familiar tune written on it, is pinned to
his back. The object is to see who will
be the first to guess the melody he
bears, and for the first three correct
guesses prizes are awarded.
"The only guide that the player pos-'
sesses as to his own tune is the fact
that others hum it as he approaches.
"The hostess keeps a tablet on which
each player is invited to register his
name and that of the composition in
question as soon as he has discovered
the latter. Each guess is numbered aa
it is written down, but whether or not
he has been successful is not divulged
to any player until all have registered
their guesses, as this would destroy the
excitement of thc game for the rest.
"Any player is allowed to change his
vote if he feels he has made a mistake,
in which case the second guess is registered in a later place and the first
one erased. The first guess even if the
correct one, no longer counts as an
answer."

Taxing the Unwed
A bill imposing a tax on all young
people of marriagable age who remain
single has been approved by the financial
commission of the Russian Duma and
will take the form of a percentage o!
their incomes. This recalls the fact
that a bachelor tax was first imposed
in England in 1696, and it continued
in operation till 1708. William III
wanted money to carry on the war with
France, and this was an easy way of
raising it. Every bachelor of twenty-
five, and every childless widower of
five years' standing had to pay a shilling
a year for five years, and as his position
in the social scale grew, so also did his
contributions. Towards thc end of thc
eighteenth century unmarried men over
twenty-one who had servants had to
pay extra taxation, and later on to
contribute a greater proportion to the
income tax.
Don't Kiss the Baby
Kissing goes by favor with babies.
There arc those whom they willingly
kiss and those from whom they turn
away. Mothers who value the health of
their little children do not encourage
thoroughly with two yolks of new-laid
eggs and stirred over the fire till it
thickens and presents a creamy appearance.
Should be served in a fireproof casserole.
Plain Chicken Broth
After dividing the fowl and washing
in cold water, put in a stew pan with
one quart of water, a little salt, the heart
of a white cabbage lettuce and a handful
of chervil.
Boil for about an hour, skimming
constantly, and strain through a napkin.

CITY'S NEW PLAN
IN LEGAL ADVICE
C. V. BENNETT SELECTED AS LEGAL ADVISER FOR A MONTH
Will Give Written Opinions from
Time to Time aa Required by
Chairmen of Committees or Mayor���Not Any Alderman.
For a month as a trial plan C. V.
Bennett will be consulted by the Chairmen of committees when the city needs
legal advice. For each opinion given,
which will be a written one, he will
charge the regular fee until a scale
of fees is arranged. The idea according
to Alderman Newton is to economize
in legal expenses for the city.
Alderman Pattullo wanted to know
if any alderman might consult Mr.
Bennett when anxious for legal enlightenment on any city business.
This Alderman Newton said was not
the idea. The idea was to reduce the
amount of consultation with the city
lawyers by aldermen off their own bat,
and let this be done by the three chairmen and the Mayor.

TEMPORARY    LUMBER   SUPPLY
Georgetown Saw Mills Will Supply
Urgent Needs
Since thc Westholme Lumber company
cannot come through right away with
a supply of dimension lumber to meet
the city's immediate needs, it has been
decided by the city council to obtain
sufficient lumber to go on with from the
Georgetown saw mills at the rate of
$14.50 per thousand feet.
This price ia only about a dollar a
thousand over that of the Westholme
company's contract tem.s and as thr
lumber is urgently needed and the
Westholme company cannot supply
dimension lumber until April the arrangement has been approved by the
council.

The Rule of the Scot
All over the Empire .Scotchmen have so long been found as Mr. Asquith
has genially phrued it, "in places of authority, or at least places of emolument,"
that surprise is no longer manifested, and the gall lUM been extracted from the
jokes about the pushing qualities of the Scot.
Punch gave a, merry jest the other week about thc Scotchman who explained
that he had seen nothing of lhe English people on his business trip to London
became ha bad only met the heads of departments. There can be no question
as to the predominance of the Scot in the British House of Commons. This, combined *ith the assistance of the Irish party, and the fact that tho Chancellor
of the Exchequer is a Welshman, has raised the cry among the Unionists and
the Peers lhat lhe Government's recent victory was not a British one.
It was Lloyd-George himself who took pains to puncture the cry of "the Celtic
fringe" with ridicule. "The money of Ireland counts, their taxes count, their
soldiers count, their rent to English landlords count���but their votes are not
���uppoaed to count unless they are Tory," he declared satirically. "It was an
answer to the cry," he said, "that the only man of brains the other party pos-
aeaaed, 'Mr. Balfour) was a Scotchman, their second best man, (Rosebery) was
a S--otchman, the man who supplied iheir ideas, iGarvin) was an Irishman, and
as for the rest of them, they were the sorriest crew that ever ran a ship aground."
It is noteworthy thai both Archbishops of the Anglican Church, the Lord
Lieutenant of Ireland, the Lord Chancellor, the Secretary of State for War, the
Kirst Lord of the Admiralty, and the Chief Liberal Whip, as well as the leader
of the Opposition, are all "brother Scots." And thc only two noblemen who have
married into l he Royal Family are Scotch dukes.
A hundred and fifty years ago Englishmen put a little more gall into their
jokes about the pushing Scotchman, as Lord Bute found to his cost. At his first
le.ee a gentleman in thc crowd asked George Brudent-I what all the fuss was about.
"Oh," he said, "a Scotchman has got into the Treasury and they can't get him

(From the Windsor Record)
Canada should think twice, or oftener before doing anything to encourage
the sending of the Duke of ''oiinaughl its Governor-General of this country.
Ottawa is "high" enough now in all conscience. With a royal personage
there, lhe democratic freedom of the people would be seriously trammelled.yW ;
Canada now has u mimic court-with the presence of a scion of royalty, there
would be created something like a royal court and all its attendant mummery
and sycophancy. *m
Ottawa is or should be chiefly a place for business and nol for the dissipation
of the peopla'a resources in social fund ions, which encourage personal extravagance
anil, by distracting the attention of the people's representatives, unfit them for
the work for which they are scut to the capital.
Canada wants a commoner for a figurehead, one who has been trained in
public business, and nol a social ornament or man-milliner.
The Record would go further and express the hope thut some day Canada's
Governor-General will be bred on the home soil.

a curious mistake arose. The ->ost-

To have a purchasing agent as well

the purchasing agent would save his
salary time and again. Thc suggestion
stood out in strong contrast to Alderman
Clayton's idea of doubling up more

BRIT1SH FIRMS   GREAT REPLY
TO HER GERMAN  RIVALS
Will Retain Liner Supremacy by
Building 50.000 Ton Boat to Beat
the World Plana Announced by
Company.
The determination to build a 50,000
ton ship is the Cunard Company's
answer to tht* Hamburg-Ami-rika Company, who recently announced the
construction of a liner which was to
eclipse any British steamer on the
water, and the importance of the British company's retort can not be exiiR*
gerated, whether considered from the
point of view of the Atlantic passenger and mail traflic. or that of the
Naval Reserve. The new Cunarder
will nol only be as large as her German rival, ��� .... 50,000 tons, but she
will considerably exceed her in speed.
Thc new Cunarder will have a larger
displacement by 18,000 tons than the
Mauretania, the world's fastest ship at
the present time, and she will exceed
the length of that vessel by 128 feet.
The plans passed are for a vessel 850
feet in length between |KT|>endiculiirs,
and 885 feet over all, and an extreme
breadth of 85 feet 6 inches, as compared with the 92 feet in the White Star
Company's Olympic. The length of
the Mauretania, it may be totalled, is
762 feet, and the breadth 88 feet. In
the matter of speed, the new Cunarder
will Is* constructed to maintuin an average steaming of 22 knots on a departure draught Of 84 feet, so that while
she will not in the matter
alone attempt lo emulat
furmancft* of the Mauretania, she will |
surpass thc new Olympic or the new
llnmhurg-Amerika boats, if in the hit- .yt
ter ram* 20 knots, as has lieen report-  *!���<
