 VOL. IV.   NO. 9.  KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, JAN. 25, I9I\.  $1.50 Per Annum.  Meeting of City Council  Council Will Investigate Question of Raising Telephone Rates  -  Petition Presented From Business Men  The council met Monday morning last, the only absentee being  Aldermen Raymer, who is at present on a visit to the coast.  A communication which had  been laid on the table from a previous -meeting from the Kelowna  Canning Co., and the Kelowna  Farmers' Exchange, asking for the  construction of a plank sidewalk  under the Local Improvements Act  was taken up again.  Mayor Jones thought the Board  of Works might now proceed with  the work. The sidewalk was certainly a very necessary one.  Aid. Copeland, as. chairman of  the Board of Works, said he had  been over the ground. He agreed  that a sidewalk was very badly  needed. In that particular case,  the cost of a cement sidewalk  would be too great at the present  time. There was nothing for it  but to put in a plank walk.  A letter was read from the Bur-  rough's Adding Machine Co., asking what the council intended doing with respect to the adding  machine which had been on trial  in the clerk's office for some time.  This was referred to the finance  committee.  Mr. H. Lysons of the Kelowna  Greenhouses wrote respecting the  order for plants for the public park.  He understood that the goods he  had supplied during the past two  years had been quite satisfactory,  and pointed out that if the council  were thinking of obtaining any  thia year it was neceseary to get  the order in early so that the plants  could be started in good time. It  was decided to let the matter stand  over until the park commissioners  had been appointed.  A plan of a subdivision of Block  28 was submitted by Mr. Harvey.  The plan had been submitted to  the 1911 council but had been referred back for some alterations.  Some little discussion arose on  on the subject of subdivisions generally. The plan under consideration showed two streets which  were not in line with those of the  next subdivision. The difficulty  was due to the fact that a number  of years ago several blocks in the  city had been badly subdivided,  and it was now almost impossible  to make blocks in the same neighborhood fit in with ihem, so as to  preserve the regularity and straight-  nesa of the streets. The mischief  had been done before any proper  system had been adopted by the  council.  Aid. Sutherland suggested, in  order to avoid any similar difficulty  in the future, that an engineer be  engaged to subdivide the remainder of the city. Owners of the  blocks would then follow the plan  adopted.  The plan waa eventally passed.  Mr. W. Lloyd-Jonea waited upon  the council in connection with the  proposal of the Okanagan Telephone Co. to raise the ratea in the  city. He had been presented with  a form of contract by the telephone  company for the next twelve months. The contract (ailed for a raise  in the rates on business 'phones  from three dollars to five dollars  per month with a rebate of a dollar  for payment within fifteen days.  On residence phones the advance  was one dollar, which would however be returned for similar prompt  payment. He had thought it advisable, before signing the contract  to seek the advice of the city council.  Most of the other business men  in the cily had adopted the same  view, as waa ahown by the following petition which he read :  " To the Mayor and Council of  the City of Kelowna,  " We, the undersigned business  men and citizens of the City of  Kelowna beg you to investigate the  telephone franchise granted by this  city to H. H. Millie, and also the  the authority of the Okanagan Telephone Co. to raise the rates."  The petition was signed by  twenty-six of the principal business  men of the city.  It was thought advisable, concluded Mr. Lloyd-Jones that ihe  council should take the matter in  hand and notify the citizens as to  what steps they ought to take when  the company's contracts were presented to them for signature.  Mr. D. Leckie who accompanied  Mr. Lloyd-Jones also expressed the  opinion that the council should assume any deal which might have  have to be made betvveen the city  and the company, and arrange so  that anyone asked to sign the contract in dispute could refer them to  the city council. This would put  the business men-in a much better  position and save them from any  annoyance. The original contract  belween the city and Mr. Millie it  seemed, gave the use of the streets  on condition that the rates charged  should not go above a certain figure. If the city agreed to a raise  in the rates that clause would be  destroyed.  It had been said that the new  company could rabe the rates anyway, whether the city agreed or  not. It was clearly the duly of  the council to go carefully into the  matter, and in the meantime to  notify telephone users not to sign  any contracts until they had had  an opportunity of ascertaining  whether this wns so or not.  Aid. Millie stated that the original franchise luder which he had  been working still belonged to him.  he had not sold the franchise, but  merely the poles and wire and  plant generally. The new company had a franchise of their own  from the Provincial Government.  Mi. Leckie said it was up to the  company to either acquire or repudiate the original franchise,  if the company could come and  take over the poles and ignore the  contract under which they had  been placed on the streets, il looked as though the city were being  jockeyed out of their rights. The  one ray of light in the contract with  Mr. Millie had been that the city  had control of the rates. The city  had still some authority regarding  the placing of the poles in the  streets. If they allowed the company to take over the existing ones  they should endeavor to enforce  the condition that the company  also take the franchise, and thus  retain control of the rates.  The discussion continued for  some time, when finally on the  suggestion of the mayor, a special  committee consisting of Aid. Taylor. Aid. Sutherland and Aid. Raymer were appointed to go into the  matter. It was decided to take advantage of the fact of Aid. Raymer  being af the coast by getting into  communication with him with a  view to obtaining expert legal advice.  .Meanwhile the council would  e'dVise the people to refuse signature of the contracts while the enquiry waa pending.  The council then adjourned until Monday next, January 29th.  J. A. Macaakill, of Celesta, near  Salmon Arm fell through the ice a  few days ago and was drowned.  A man named E. McMinns, an  employee of P. Burns ot Co., was  asphyxiated in a launch near Kam-  loopa.  J. Wilson, Coo. Goldsmith, Alf.  McLeelan, Geo. Murrill, and E.  Fowler returned Thursday last  from Vernon having passed their  respective examinations for steam  engineer's certificate.  Reports from Bexlev heath, Kent  say that Sir Charles Tapper's improvement has been continuous for  the last ten days and that he is now  able to rise daily. He converses  cheerly and intereatedly.  "The Players," of Summerland,  are visiting Kelowna next week  with a comedy, "The Truth," under  the management of Mr. Wm.  Sauter.  Dr. Brown, formerly of Carmen,  Man., but now of Vancouver, has  been visiting friends in town thia  week.  Teams have been busy lately  hauling out lumber for the rebuilding of two more of the " Five  Bridges." New bridges are also to  be built along the K. L. 0. road.  Hockey  On Friday last the Shamrocks  journeyed up the lake first meeting  the Vernon team. They were  hopelessly outclassed there suffering an ignominious defeat by I 7 to  2. At Armstrong, however, they  retrieved some of their lost laurels,-  winning out by 6 to 3.  The Billikins played Summerland!  College last Friday at Summerland.j  The match resulted in a win forf  the Kelowna team by by 4 to 3.  Annual Vestry Meeting  St. Michael and All Angels'  Church  Local hockey has been a   rather  season has consequently got into  some confusion through matches  having to be abandoned. Games  are being sandwitched in when-j  ever there is ice. On Monday  nightthe Fire Brigade beat the  Billikins by 6 to I.  A girls' hockey match was played last Thursday afternoon between teams selected from the  High School and the Public School  The result was a win for the High  School girls, who carried off the  hox of choc Iates offered by Fuller  Bros, as a prize, 1 here is talk, if  the weather man will perm:!, of organizing a permanent girls' hockey  team.  New  Legislation  Regarding  Race Meetings  Race meets held by associations  that do not boast incorporation bv  acts of parliament, says an Ottawa  despatch, are to be no more.  The minister of justice will bring  in a bill to amend the criminal  code, making the holding of such  meets illegal.  A racing association hereafter  will have to get its authority by an  act of the federal as well as the  provincial legislature, instead of  merely obtaining letters patent.  The object of the amerdment is  to lessen the number of gambling  meets.  The Annual General Vestry ol  the above parish was held on Wednesday, the lOih inst. The Rectoi  presided ; the following is a summary of his address:  The year just closed has shown  a general imp|ovement in Church  matters. The church population  has increased considerably, and  with   this there   has been a corre-  Smallpox Held Up Postal  System of Ottawa  uncertain quantity lately owing loj sponding increase in the number  the mild weather. The schedule' of communicants. The need of a  arranged at the beginning of the; hall in which to hold parish meetings grows each year more urgent,  but nothing can be done towards  building it until the new church is  finished. In October, the Rev. C.  H. Meyrick, an Oxford graduate,  was appointed assistant-priest; the  Rector finds in him an able and  sympathetic coadjutor. He has  charge of S. Andrew's, Okanagan  Mission, where he holds services  on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the  month, and on the great festivals.  On the other Sundays he assists in  the parish church. In spring he  will visit various out-stations, and  hold services at ihem at regular  intervals. Mr. E. M. Cnrruihers,  manager of the K. L. O. Ranch,  who has been identified with the  parish since it was formed in 1894,  and was also Lay Delegate and  Churchwarden lasl year, is leaving  to take charge of the company's  Old Country business, wilh headquarters in London. His departure is much regretted, and we  wish him every success in the important position lo which he has  been advanced. Mr. F. G. Tollit,  who has been organist for nearly  a year rnd a half, has been reluctantly obliged to resign his  posit'on, on account of increased  office work, and the distance he  resides from the church. The  choir and congregation owe much  lo him for the ability he has displayed in the conduct of the musical part of the service. Mr. B. G.  Meyrick has been appointed in his  stead, and will take charge in  March. In lh��ameantime Miss  Walters has charge of the organ  and choir. Arrangements are being made to localize the magazine  " Across the Rockies " as a parish  magazine. It is a venture which  it is hoped will be well supported  by the congregation. The first  number will be published before  Easter. The Sale of Work held  jointly by the Women's Auxiliary  and the Chancel Guild for the  building fund of the new church  was a great success, and netted the  .handsome sum of $691. The  Chancel Guild, in addition, con-  tribut-d out of their fu da the sum  of $74.00 towards ihe same work.  1 oo much praise cannot be given  to these two societies for their unselfish labors. The men of the  congregation might well follow the  example thus set them, and do  something besides giving an annual subscription to church funds.  The People's Warden, Mr. A. H.  Crichton, read the financial report.  The open offertory showed a large  increase on the previous year, but  the annual subscriptions were not  correspondingly increased. This  waa recommended to the attention  of the new wardens. There are  no debts and the pariah accounts  show a good balance in hand. Mr.  G. C. R. Harvey, People's Warden,  S. Andrew's, Okanagan Mission,  was present, and gave a verbal  report of the work in that district.  This was most gratifying and will  appear in their congregational report.  The election of officers for 1912  was then proceeded with. The  Lay Delegates are: Dr. N. Shepherd, Messrs. F. A. Taylor and T.  W. Stirling. Substitutes: Messrs.  A. H. Crichton, J. B. Whitehead  and L. E. Taylor. Churchwardens:  Messrs. F. A. Taylor and R. E.  Denison. Sidesmen: G. Royle,  W. R. Jones, E. R. Bailey, J. B.  Whitehead, E. Wilkinson, Dr.  Boyce, Dr. Shepherd and D. Cameron. Many important matters  were discussed, one being the  question of the Clergy Superanua-  tion Fund. In this connection the  Rector read a resolution passed by  the Summerland Vestry auggesling  that their congregation loy'aside a  sum equal to one-tenth of stipend  towards auperanuation. After some  discussion it was unanimously resolved  that the  lay  delegates be  An unprecedented situation regarding the local mails arose at  Ottawa last week. A sorting clerk  was said to have been found to  have small pox and a flurry arose  in all the local branches. 'A rigid  quarantine was enforced and no  employee that was caught was allowed to go out until vaccinated.  Meantime all the mail matter received in Ottawa was held,  and the whole institution was  closed until a thorough fumigation  of all had been made by the local  powers. At midnight fumigation  of mail matter was complete, and  all matter held up was released  for delivery. There were about  ninety employees vaccinated.  Those mails received up till early  afternoon were sent out and many  more important mails had already  been despatched before the hour  of notification of disease and  quarantine.  The C. P. R. last year brought  150,000 settlers to Canada from  the United Kingdom, aa compared  with 25,000 in 1910.  The " Daily Telegraph's " Peking  correspondent says he is informed  officially that the Peking Government will be obliged openly to  declare China's bankruptcy at the  Chinese New Year on Feb. 18.

Insured Five Million Dollars For  Three Hours  A five million dollar insurance  policy, the life of which was three  liours, was issued to guarantee a  New York banking house against  loss by highwaymen during the  transler from the burned Equitable  buildmg of a fortune in cash and  securities which had to be carried  six blocks. Although the surely  company assumed the risk of loss,  the actual protection devolved  upon the cily, for a squad of police  were the only guards. The surety  company called the policy a  " Hold-up and Robbery Policy,"  sud received $500 for the risk.  Two Miners Killed at Hedley  Two miners, William Coward  and Archie McCalister, were acci-  dently killed in the Nickel Plate  mine, Hedley, last Friday. The  accident was due to a mised hole  which the men knew about.

Although app rently  a dry subject, ihe speaker dealt  with it in a most entertaini g and  convincing way, taking lhe|. isilion  that far from being an ec iioniic  necessity, war was an ec. nnniic  waste and a hindrance |o trade  and commercial development, A  discussion followed the paper,  which was highly apprecii rti by  all.

I he Editor,  "Cily Record,"  Dear Sir, At the meeting of the  ratepayers on the 9th inst. we were  informed that one-third or over  33 1-3 per cent, of the total  assessment had been used on ihe  schools during the past year.  The chairman of the School  Trustees also told us that he thought  that he had a more important job  than either the Mayor or the Aid  erman, and warned us that thi:  large expenditure would have to  be increased in the ensuing year  In view of these statements  would it not be very desirable, -n  the future, for the trustees to tak  the ratepayers a little more into  their confidence and let them  know something of what Is being  done throughout the year.  Why should not the meetings of  the trustees be regularly reported  in the press as are those of the  council so that the electors may  learn more about their doings than  can be gathered from a mere  financial statement once a year.  In view of the apparent small  interest shown in educational  matters these repoits would tend  to encourage some feeling on this  important subject and perhaps  next year the trustees might arrange for a municipal meeting on  their own account, as is already  done elsewhere in the valley. At  such   a  meeting  more  details  of  their   steward,hip   would be   welcomed  Yours truly,  J. B. WHITEHEAD.!  [There seems to be m pa ticul-  ar reason, so far as we c n le an  why the proceedings of tlie School  Trustees have not been given just  as wide publicity as the doings of  the council or any public body. It  has not been customary in Kelowna, that is all. The chairman of  (he trustees, Mr. Thomas Lawson,  assures us of his entire willingness  to cooperate wilh the press in remedying the deficiency. Ed.]  Ex-Alderman Cox Writes on  Conditions in the Old  Country  We received the following litter  the other day from ex-alderman  Cox, who since last fall lias been  visiting ihe Old Countrv after an  absence of many years :  Coleford, Nr. Bath,  Somersetshire, England.  Jan. 1st, 1912.  Editor of the " Kelowna Recoid,"  Dear Sir, - 1 he reciprocity question is no doubt a dead letter  now throughout Canada. Yet  while this may be so one can  hardly forget what ihe consequences might have been had it  become law.  1 have made it my business  while travelling through the West  of England to make enquiries regarding trade through this part.  Free trade some say is a boon to  England, but it has caused the Old,  Country to become a dumping  ground for every conceivable  article. Among many others I  found one factory that used to  employ thousands of hands now  standing idle. I enquiied the  reason and was informed that ihey  used to manufacture rails for the  companies in F.ngland. Now our  friend the German has the trade.  Not only do they supply the rail-,  but when they are worn out, they  are shipped back to Germany to  he melted and made up ag tin.  I also found a sash and door factory with but a few hands employed. Germany had 'he trade, and  mechanics working on starvation  wages.    The hardware business is  the same, the very locks and fastenings on our doors and windows  are from Germany.  Then we have cheap worthiers  clolh shipped in Irom that same'  country. Our manufacturers have  to compete with this sort of trade,  and consequently cheapen the  quality of the goods.  1 have a relative in the clolh  trade who stated to me that it was]  impossible to obtain the quality of,  cloth which he had been accustom-!  ed to handle in former years.  1 also see a danger of the retail:  trade being in the hands of a few.  I think I am safe in making the.  statement that there .,re 500 vacant  sti-res in the cily of Bristol alone.'  Every reasonable man knows what;  this means. Is it any wonder there i  is want in this beautiful old 1. rH.'  Can we wonder at energetic young:  men leaving lo better their con-  dition.  I see more and more ihe necessity of suppoiting home industries.  |  Thanking you for this space and  wishing the town  of  Kelowna nllj  prosperity, and  thanking  the peo-i  pie for their kindness. I  Yours sincerely. '  A. S. COX.    !  i  Remember the diile of S. L.

R. in improving  its system west of the Great Lakes  during the coming year.  New Years Day, 1912, marked  the completion of four-fifths of the  excavation for the Panama Canal.  A machine that measures the  wear caused by traffic upon public  highways is among the scientific instrument on show at the exhibition of the Physical Society of London at the Imperial College ol  Science, South Kensington.  During the year 191 I the C.P.R.  established 41 new towns in the  three prairie provinces, Manitoba,  S.i;k itchewan and Albeita. Thia  year with the large number ol  branch lines and extensions corn  pleted it is possible that the railway will establish more new municipalities. This will result in the  creation of many new business and  professional openings.  One hundred girl students in the  Wadleigh High School, New York,  who are taking a course in housekeeping, will adopt a baby, and  care for the child as a part of the  work of the course.

THE  OAK HALL CLOTHING  Co'y., Ltd.  Infertile Eggs Keep Best  A large part of the heavy loss  from bad eggs can be obviated by  bv the production of infertile eggs.  This has been demonstrated beyond doubt by the investigations  concerning the improvement ot  the farm egg which during the past  two years have been conducted in  the Middle West bv the United  Stales Bureau of Animal Industry of  the Department of Agriculture.  Secretary Wilson of the Department of Agriculture estimates that  between the producer and consumer, there is an annual loss of $45,-  000,000 in the egg crop of the  United States, the greater portion  of which falls on the farmer, who  is by far the largest producer. Of  this enormous loss, about one third  $15,000,000, is what is known to  the trade as a " blood ring." As it  is impossible to produce a " blood  ring " in an infertile egg, such an  egg will stand a higher degree of  temperature without serious deterioration than will a fertile egg.  The secretary says that if farmers and others engaged in the production of eggs would market their  male birds as soon as the hatching  season is over, a large saving  would be made, as practically  every infertile egg would grade a  first or second if clean and promptly marketed.  No more simple and efficient  method for the improvement of  the egg supply could be adopted  than the production of infertile eggs.

The new Republican government of China has sent an appeal  to the powers for recognition.  This touk the form of a circular  which was sent to London, Pari?,  Berlin, St. Petersburg and Washington, and was signed by Wang  Chung Wei, the former minister of  'he Republican cabinet.  It is understood thitsurveys of a  plan for double tracking the Canadian Pacific Railway between  Hope and Spencer's Bridge have  been completed. A start at this  vast improvement, involving an expenditure of between $20,000,000  and $25,000,000 will likely be  made early next year. While the  initial cost of dnubl -tracking will  'le high it will effect a great economy in operating charges and thus  better enable theC P. R. to compete with its coming rival.  Many important changes in the  forestry jaws of the province are  contained in the bill which Hon.  William Rors introduced into the  Legislature Saturday. It constitutes  in fact, practically a new law on  ihe subject and Is the olltCOn e of  ihe extensive enquiry made by the  special commission which presented its report about a year ago. The  measure sets up a separate forestry  branch of the department of lands.  Any future timber licenses that  may be issued will he granted hv  lender to persons offrring the highest bonus in addition to the royalties fixed bv statute. These royal-  lies will be considerably higher  lhan at present. There are also a  series of provisions embodying the  most stringent precautions againsl  fire.  A   National   Telephone  System  At the beginning of this year the  postal department of Great Britain  took possession of all the private  telephone lines in the United Kingdom. These had been either established or absorbed by the National  Telephone Company, which some  years ago had an income of $13,-  000,000. The government is paying the private owners some $80,-  000,000 for their plant. No allow-  ance is made for goodwill. The  department is able to acquire the  properties on good terms, as the  companies were never given any  valuable franchises the government  refusing to allow the municipalities  to make important concessions.  The company has been compelled  to pay the post office a ten per cent,  royally on all the income, and waa  greatly restricted as to the privilege  of erecting polea or establishing  undeiground systems. Several cities  established municipal telephone  systems, but some were afterwards  taken over by the National Telephone Company, and some, including that of Glasgow, by the Post  Office.

Although there are many thin^
that we du not know about couaurnp-
tlon ,or tuberculosis, there are some
that we do and a few that we are In
the act of learning
We do not know, far example, what
makes for susceptibility and whnt for
Immunity. Strung mid robust per-
sons are sometimes stricken down
with It; invalids and convalescents
from other diseases are no more susceptible to It than are other people,
and It is possible tu live for :"i entire lifetime in the condition known
aa "run-down" or "weak" without
becoming tuberculosis.
People, says a writer, still spenk of
consumption as "Inherited," but it is
not Inherited. A child may be born
with a certain tendency to It, but »•
proper measures are taken early, and
kept up steadily and long enough,
this tendency can be overcome. A
child whose parents before him, and
their parents before them, perhaps
for generations hack have been poor
breathers, will probably inherit a
small, meagre chest, and will therefore be the natural victim of the
consumption germ as soon as It
reaches him. That child will have to
be taught to breathe. The tendency
to pigeon-breast can be overcome and
a narrow chest developed to n normal capacity; hut to do this, the
child must be kept constantly In
good air, and tu tight how to develop
and use the lungs. A pigeon-breasted child who Is being brought tip on
the coddling process—over-sheltered,
overfed and overclothed—is In at)
much danger ;is If he lived under the
famous sword banging from a hair.

A curious discover) lias been made
Rt Oakley Station, near Dunfermline,
Scotland. In the course of alterations for the purpose of heightening
the platform, it was found necessary
to Hiibstitute a fresh plank of wood
I for an old one. The latter was being
'sawn up for firewood when a sword
'was found Imbedded In the heart of
It The plank had formed pari of the
platform support for at least fifteen
years. There was little rust on the
weapon, which was an old-fashioned
type, a short cross piece forming the
handle. How the sword could have
not where It was discovered is 11 mystery, as there was no indication from
Ihe outside or the plank where it
had entered, and ll is believed that
it had been picked up by the tree at
an early period of lis existence and
encircled with the growth,
In the Modern Babylon Water is Still

Paris is rich in contrasts, and
sometimes the Irony is charming. In
the height of fashluO to-day Is still
to be seen the picturesque water-carrier, and the scarcity due to the
drought once more calls attention to
hlB existence. On the heights of
Montmartre are to be seen these robust Auvergnes, marching with their
measured steps—nnd, by a fiction, the
Parsl water-carrier must always be
an Auvergnat—with his two buckets.
The extension of the water system
has gone hard with the "porter
d'eau," who In days past made a fairly good 'living. In 18G0 there were
1,253 porters; in 1880 die number had
fallen to 800; and to-day there are

the district he worked, eo ns to be

were everywhere about he had to

his way into a wood and hide In an
oak tree. Returning when the danger was for a moment passed, he
spent another night al the house,
then, early in the morning, took food
and drink with him to the oak tree,
climbed up and stayed there for

Complicated Census Work.
CenBUs taking In China, it would
appear, Is a business complicated by
Chinese customs. Thus the Chinese
method of reckoning age is not the
tame as the European. A Chinese
Ehlld at birth Is said lo be one year
Did, and after It has passed one New
Year It is said to be two yearB old;
go that If born In the last month of
the year It may be said to be two
tears of age before it is 30 days days
Did according to European reckoning.
Difficulties are encountered In China,
as elsewhere, in regard to tho ages
of females. There was an old lady
ot Chlng-tzu known to be over 100
who Insisted on the enumerator entering her age at 99. This was because It Is a customary term of abuse
to call a person a "hundred years old
donkey,'* or "ten-toothed donkey,"
which has the same significance. It
Is stated to be a common thing ror a
Chinese mother to give a son the
name of a girl* presumably to deceive
the fates, it being a common and true
Baying that a girl Is easier to rear.
This of course is another sourct of
trouble  to  the  enumerators.

Chinese Have Steadily Combined Together,   To   Arm   Themselves  with    an    Invisible    Weapon  (or  Protection.  In order to enforce their rights by  the simplest and most bloodless  means, the Chinese Imve steadily cultivated the art of combining togethei  and have thus, armed themselves with  an Immaterial, Invisible weapon,  which simply paralyses the aggressor, and ultimately leaves them masters of the field. The extraordinary  part of the Chinese boycott or strike  is the absolute fidelity by which It Is  observed. If the boatmen or chiilr-  coolles at any place strike, they all  strike: there arc DO blacklegs. If the  butchers refuse lo se'l, they all refuse, entirely confident of each other's loyalty.  Foreign merchants who have offended the Chinese guilds by some  course of action not approved of by  those powerful bod'" have often  found to their cost thai ueh conduct  will not be tolerated for a moment,  and that their only course is to withdraw, sometimes at n considerable  loss, from the untenable position  they had taken up.  The other s'de r' the medal Is  equally Instructive. Some years ago  the foreign tea merchants at a large  port, In order to curb excessive  charges, decided to licift the Chinese  teamen, or sellers or tea. with their  own petard. Thev orenn'sed a strict  combination against the tea-men,  whose tea no collestme was to buy  until, by what seemed to be a natural order of events, the ten-men had  been brought tn their knees. The  tea-men. however, repinined firm,  their countenances as Impassive as  ever. Before long, the ten merchants  discovered that some of their number  had broken faith, and were doing a  roaring business for tbelr own account, on the terms originally Insisted on by the tea-men.  OUR WONDERFUL LANGUAGE,  How   Allah   Fashioned  n  Tongue for  the Kngllshninn.  In Bpite of certain undeniable disadvantages, the English language  steadily makes headway. There are  few tongues so bard to master. One  foreigner, who has had his troubles,  but has won his way to a perfect  command of the language, has presented some of the humors of the difficulties which belong to this richest  of living  languages.  As a hoy, I heard a fantastic Turkish legend, which, to mv mind, aptly  lllustrntes the actual facts concerning the origin nnd formation of modern English.  After creating the first parents of  each of the races, the story runs, Al  lah took a large piece of meal, and  cutting It into slices, distributed them  among all the people to serve them  as tongues. For some reason the  Englishman was absent when the  others received their share. At last  he came Into Ihe presence of his  Maker, and In mute humiliation beg-  hlm to put a tongue into his mouth.  Rut nothing was left of the meat.  So Allah was obliged to cut a little  piece from the tongues of all the  others, nnd joining these pieces, he  fashioned  a tongue for  the  EngliBh-  The (.'olden Opportunity.  Among Ihe persons who hnve recently made provision for old age  when It comes are two sisters, aged  respectively it.l and 34 years. They  have purchased from the Canadian  government a Last Survivor Annuity,  that Is un annuity Which will give  them together an Income of tiino a  year so lone as they both live, and  to be continued to the survivor so  long as she "'-ns. The cost of this  Annuity, $3,0'8.C5, has bee i Invested  at 6 per cent., and had brought In  less than 11 Sfi.tm annually, with the  difficulty nnd annoyance of re-Investment, The Annuity becomes payable when the younger sister attains  the ago of 55, nnd should both die  before that time the purchase money  will be refunded to their heirs with  3 per cent, compound interest. Eneh  Is now earning her own living, and  the Bum paid is Ihe fruit of their labors for a number o: years. They  were thus able the better to appreciate their splendid opportunity, A  card of enquiry addressed to the  Superintendent of Canadian Government Annuities, Ottawa, will secure  for you any information you desire  on  the subject.

'It Is no use;  I know you detest tobacco, Benson  but I must have tr Bmokel' anil be  hnd accordingly gone to a hlg furre-  bush and put his arm In at the  hole, and after some groping about,  produced a churchwarden pipe, which  he filled and smoked with great sat  isfaction, afterwards putting It Into  a hollow tree, and telling mv fntlinr.  with a chuckle, that he had concealed  pities r11 over the par'sh, to meet the  exigences of a sudden desire to  smoke.  (irowth in Naval Expenditure,  Since 11)02 the naval, expenditure  of tho principal countries of the  world has Incrensed from ��90,383,-  00ft t.o��H5,31!),000. Great Britain is  responsible for an Increase of ��13.-  000.000, Oermnny for $12,000,000, the  United Slntes for ��10.000,000, France  for over ��4,000,000, and Russia for  ��3,000,000. In the Inst ten yenrB the  eight chief naval powers hnve spent  the stupendous sum of upwards of  one billion pounds sterling on naval  defence. ,  ILLUSTRATION   OF   PUBLIC   OWN-  EU8IIIP.  Tke   United   States   Government   Is  Banning Department Stores, Ho-  tale and a Steamship Line  In Panama,  The United States government, an  everybody knows, Is engaged In  building as a public enterprise, a  oanal across the Isthmus of Panama.  What the world does not generally  understand Is that as part of this  operation the government Is also  running lines of railway, a departmental store, hotels and a steamship  line. At this government departmental store It Is possible to buy almost everything, Including ladles' patent leather shoes, briar pipes, teething rings for babies, sugared almonds  ete. No less than fifteen hotels are  operated, besides 18 mess halls. During one month these places served  nearly 1,000,000 meals all told.  This has led a writer to suggest  the possibility of the United States  government developing Alaska by  means of railways operated by the  government Itself.  Does not what has been accomplished suggest something more���the  possibility of solving the trust  problem by means of public ownership? It seems futile to talk of going back to the' old days of small Industries and free competition. The  economy In large operations is something the public will not readily consent to surrender. Neither does It  Beem altogether easy to solve the  problem by public control of corporations. The only easy way out would  seem to be going the whole length  and providing for public operation,  something which does not. In- view ot  what Is being accomplished in Panama, appear bo very difficult after all.  TWO WAR PICTURES.  Reminiscences    Written    by    a   Nun.  Commissioned Officer Who Served During ihe Napoleonic  Mars.  There has recently been published  a book containing reminiscences  written by a non-commisaioned officer who served during the Napoleonic  wars. In these reminiscences there  is giver: this description of a scene  after the British attack on the French  forces iu Alexandria: "After the  action was over we were ordered to  go and take all the wounded of both  armies and carry them to the boats  . ... It was truly a horrible  sight to see the French and British  writhing in agonies of dentil, and  making; friendship, who had only a  few minutes before been filled with  rage and hatred at one another���all  their fierce passions stilled, and like  a hushed child, taking one another  In  their dying arms."  This other picture Is of, the scene  presented by Waterloo the morning  after: "When morning came I went  out to see the field on which so many  brave soldiers bed perished. ' The  scene which met my eyes was horrible In the extreme. The number of  dead was far greater than I had ever  seen on any former battlefield. The  bodies were not'scattered over the  ground, but were lying In heaps-  men and horses mixed promiscuously  together. I turned away with disgust  from this heurt-movlng spectacle.  . . . . 1 confess my feelings overcame me: I wept bitterly, and wished  I bad not been a witness of such a  scene."  "As It Has In the Keglnulng."  When William Pengelly was a sailor boy, weather-bound on the coast  of Devonshire, he hnd his earliest  geological experience, and Mr. S.  Baring-Gould says he was wont to relate It as Is printed below:  I received my first lesson in geology at Lyme Regis very soon after  I had entered my teens. A laborer,  whom I was observing, accidentally  broke a small stone of blue lias and  thus disclosed a fine ammonite���the  first fossil I had ever seen or heard  of.  "What's that?" I exclaimed.  "If you read your Bible you'd know  what 'tis," said the workman, somewhat scornfully.  "I have read my Bible. But what  has that to do with It?"  "In the Bible we're told there was  once a flood that covered the whole  world. At that time all the rocks  were mud, and tho different things  that were drowned were burled In It,  nnd there's a snake that was buried  that way. There are lots of 'em, and  other things besides, In the rocka and  stones hereabouts."  "A Bnake!   But  Where's his head?"  "You must read your Bible, I tell  'ee, anil then you'll find out why 'tis  some of the snakes ain't got no heads.  We're told there that the seed of the  woman shall bruise the serpent's  head;   that's how  'tis."  Why a Chinese Republic I  The statement that the revolution  is likely to result In the formation of  a Chinese Republic has caused a  good deal of surprise In tho Western  world. When one thinks of It, however, this seems the most natural solution of the problem that will be  presented by a successful revolution.  The Munchu, ;i foreign dynasty, which  has held power In China for some  300 yenrs, is. of course. Impossible  since, ns a matter of fuct, the present  revolution is for the purpose of driving that dynasty from power. On the  other hand, the old native dynasty  has been out of business for so long  that it would probably he impossible  to find any legitimate claimant of.  the throne In that quarter. The natural aversion to Japanese tutelage  shuts that country out of consideration as the source of possible supply  for a king, and of course a European  prince would be altogether out ofthe  question. .

Some folks think that Percy Rockefeller Is the rising hope of the  Rockefeller family. He 1b credited  with being wise and wary, equipped  with a positive gush of conversation  that doesn't commit, when that sort  of chatter Is needed, and lo be so Bl-  lent at other tlmeB that a dungeon  In a deaf and dumb asylum would  sound like the whispering gallery In  St. Paul's Cathedral In comparison.  He keeps a thumb on the public  pulse, and knows a lot of things  about popular sentiment that many  other rich men do not know.  The other ulght he went to a restaurant with a party of friends. The  restaurant Is rather a favorite of his,  and the Immature pirate In charge of  the hat-room had learned to know  him. Mr. Rockefeller handed him  his mushed and desiccated old brown  hat as he entered. It was a good hat,  --once. The hat pirate looked on Mr.  Rockefeller with pity In his gaze. By  and by Mr. Rockefeller's little supper  ended, and he returned to the coat-  room to retrieve his hat. Instead of  that decrepit old brown lid, the boy  handed him a brand-new one, of the  same general form and bearing the  label of America's most expensive  maker. It fitted Mr, Rockefeller perfectly, but he handed It back. "That  isn't my hat," said he.  "Get wise, boss," suld the hat pirate. "Nudge by with It while you  nan. It's worth ten of them old kettles you been wear-In'."  Mr. Rockefeller salt! that was undoubtedly true, but he did not want  lo rob an unknown of a new hat.  "Say," said the boy. In disgust, "I  thought I was doin' you a favour, because you been it good fpller. But  vou better go bark where you come  from. You ain't bright enough to do  business In Noo York."

Towards the end of the eightenth  lentury Prussia hid absorbed a portion of the ancient t igiom of  Poland, and was engaged In the difficult task ��� still only Imperfectly  accomplished ��� of assimilating the  conquered Poles, who regarded their  German masters wilh repugnance.  The hopes of Prussia In lliose days  were largoly centred in Prince Antony  Radilwlll, one of the Polish magnates,  who accepted Prussian supremacy  over his native land In a friendly  spirit, and married Princess Louise,  a niece of Frederic the tiri-at. after  which he was appointed Viceroy Of  I'russlnn Poland, with his seat of  ','overnment at Posen. His real home.  'yiwever, was In Berlin, and It was  ������ere that his daughter, Princess  Eliza, who us a Hohcnrollern on the  maternal side associated freely with  the Prussian Royal Ramily, met  Prince William, the second son of the  reigning King, Frederic William 111.

A Shadow  During the next two years the  'oung couple saw one another co:i-  tantly. but a Bh.tdow hnd fallen  :cross their happiness owing to the  iegree of difference in their respective ranks, which constituted a bar 10  "heir marriage. When Princess Eliza's  nother ��� a lloheuzolleru Princess ���  married Prince Radsttwlll, her Inferior in birthright, she descended to  his rank, and their children were not  Royal Princes and Princesses, but  merely the descendants of a Polish  noble family, with Poyal blood Iu  their veins.  A marriage between Prince William  and Princess EPza would thus have  been a morganatic union, and the  right of their children to inherit the  Prussian Throne wou'd, according to  the "House Laws" of the llohenzol-  lern dynasty, have been open to  liottbt. The question was raised  whether Princess EHru could not be  raised to the rank ol "lipyal Highness" either by the King of Prussia or  by the Tsar, and tin- two lovers went  through an anxious time, which extended into several viars. while this  muter  remained   undecided.

Immense Dividends Will Be Paid  By The Dominion Match Co., Ltd.,  Cf Mew Westnvnstcr, B.C.  Very few people luive tiny conception of tlie magnitude of the  m.itt It industry, said C. L Godding  who is stopping for a few days at  the Lake View hotel and representing the Dominion Match Co.  It is such a tremendous factor in  the commercial world that governments have made the industry a  government monopoly, prominent  among which is France from which  is derived an annual revenue of  approximutely six million dollars.  I'lcnse understand this sum is net  profit.  There are no seasons in the  match business. It is not effected  by crop failures or panics. When  practically every other industry is  paralyzed, the match manufacturer  is experiencing his most prosperous period, on account of the fuct  that he obtains his supplies cheaper, and his'labor cheaper, the consumption of matches actually increases, because it is a well-known  fact that men consume more matches out of employment than they  do while at work. 1 his countty is  importing matches from Sweden,  Norway, Russia and Japan, notwithstanding an import duty of 25  per cent., which amounts to over a  dollar per case of one gross of  500.  The Dominion of Canada consumes, approximately, two thousand cara of matches annually.  Mexico and South America and  Oriental markets offer unlimited  fields for the sale of matches, and  no seaport is more favorably situated forsupplying this than Vancouver, British Columbia, with its unlimited fields of virgin forests.  The attention of investors is invited to the following brief plans  and cost of manufacturing matchi 8  under Parker's Continuous Process  of manufacturing matches, the sole  right of which for the Dominion of  Canada ha9 been acquired by the  Dominion Match Company Ltd.,  with offices at 328 Hastings St.  West, Vancouver, B. C, and with  its factory now being erected by  Mcl.ellan 6t Beer, contractors;  Gamble & Napp, architects, Vancouver B. C, and arrangements  now being made with with the C.  P. R. for.laying ttacks to the factory buildings.  The Dominion Match Company,  Ltd., now owns and has the exclusive right to use for the Dominion  of Canada a new process of manufacturing matches, known as the  Parker Continuous Process, by the  use of which a wide variety of  cheap raw material, such as alder,  hemlock, cottonwood, fir and  spruce, which is found in great  abundance, is now being made  available for n.anufacturing match  sticks, materials which can be obtained for a mere fraction of the  cost of white pine, now being used  by the old dye methods ; and by  the use of these cheap raw materials, and the labor-saving features  of the process, the cost of manufacturing safties, parlors, and double-dipped matches is reduced, approximately, 50 per cent.  My people are not looking for  the small investor who is always  willing to be taken in by the tales  of a shrewd stock salesman who  has nothing but his commission in  view. Our proposition appeals to  the hard headed business man with  money to invest that is worth while  to himself and the company. Stock  is now selling at par $10 per share.  I will be here till Saturday and  hope to secure some of the prom-  nent men as stock holders. As  without doubt we have the best investment on the market to-day and  stock will soon be out of reach.  People investing now will not only  reap the benefit of handsome divi.  dends and the increase of their  stock will be in itself a good in  vestment.
