, The old Council met once more
last Monday to transact current
business, and also to arrange for
another election, Mayor DeHart
having insufficient members in his
council to form a quorum, due to
the resignation of Aid. Stirling and
Gaddes and the disqualification of
A. O. Burnet, rendering this necessary.
Present, old council, His •, Worship Mayor Sutherland and Aldermen Buckland, Curts, Gaddes and
*• £TKe minutes of the last meeting
were read and adopted.
Aid. Gaddes, as chairman of the
light committee read a report from
Mr. Hall, on' the, extension of the
4 electric light on Ethel St., to De-
Hart's house, showing cost to' the
city of $46.77.
Aid. DeHart,' on this matter,
stated that' he did not have his
house wired until the poles were
erected as far as his gate. He
thought N that this matter was
brought up because he lived outside the city limits," and to _ show
the difference in cost to the city
between the extension to his house,
and some other extensions he read
several reports, in which the cost
of extension to some residences
within the city, was two or three
times'the cost of his.
, Mr. Buckland, "Those had been
put in in accordance with the city
engineer's plan.'\
.. The Mayor, "All connections
except this, have been authorized,
iand if the council wish to approve
~ of this, if is all they' will have to
do."     M    "    ' '    ■_
>    Mr. DeHart, "I  am  not aware
•' 7 that .this' was - an -'-extension. ' The
poles were there before my house
\ was wired."
Aid. DeHart went on to say that
as   far .as authorizing.went,  Mr.
-Hall had no  order from  him  to
erect these poles, and  he did not
know,1 until the poles "were up, that
anything was being done.
" His   Worship   continuing,   said
the "only point to be  considered
was that the, work had been  done
without being 'authorized by  city,
and if the Hinton people did work
without   being   authorized,     the

16th Jan., 1909,
To the Mayor arid Council of the
City of Kelowna.
 ^Gentlemen ■ : -  -
We, die undersigned, beg herewith to,tender our resignations" as
• Aldermen of the city of Kelowna.
In view of the confidence reposed in us by the ratepayers' of
the city at the recent. election, we
regret that the step we are taking
' should be necessary.
Mayor DeHart, who was a mem-
' ber of ,the late council,  criticised
, that council. and the ratepayers
hayesuppdrted him in those criticisms! which indicates that the
policy followed did hot meet with
f their approval.
'   ' We, who heartily supported that
. policy, feel that we could not endorse  the policy of the present
, Mayor, and our presence on the
Council Board swould  only make
5 discord,1 and ibe a' hindrance to
Mayor ©eHart in carrying out the
■ policy approved by the ratepayers.
If the CouhcU accept our reasons
-, for resigning as being satisfactory,
'< 'were are prepared to bear the cost
- of a new election for Aldermen to
take our places.    If the Council do
; not accept our reasons as satisfac-
* tory, we hold yourselves' ready to
; pay the statutory fine of $50.00.
f- We are,
Your obedient servants,

i Wandering for three days and

bitter cold weather, and", without
anything to eat, is the unenviable
experience of S. Lister, a ^young

On Wednesday morning,of last
week Lister went for a trip into the
mountains, and lost his way among
the many hills" and ravines. As be

hunted all around the vicinity but
could find no trace trace of him.

Two Engineers Killed—Long List of Injured—Miraculous
*    Escape of Train Crew and Passengers.
A marvellous escape from death
of many passengers occurred on
Friday, on the C.P.R. near Yale.
Two locomotives and six railway
cars were precipitated down an
embankment, with 100 feet of a
drop, down to ^the very edge of
the Frazer river. The two engineers were killed, but out of the
one hundred and fifty passengers
in the coaches, only about 28" sustained .minor injuries. / The mail
car became separated from the
rest, and landed right into the
river itself, whilst occupied by
three mail clerks. With water
rushing in through the doors, these
men scrambled through the tangled
mail bags and opened the doors,
the car luckily lying in such a position as to render this possible. By
swimming they were enabled to
reach the river bank. The colonist, day coach and tourist cars were
all filled with passengers,, who
however, got off with just^ a" few
bruises, cuts and scratches. A-remarkable feature is that the cars
did not roll down the steep decline, but simply skidded from top
to bottom.
"- The cause of the disaster was a
snowslide on the track. The^two
sngines were hooked together, and
were travelling, tnrough a blinding
snow storm, when they suddenly
came upon a drift of hard packed
snowy-which- they mounted instead
of cutting through. Here they left
the rails, and plunged over, the
cliff, the weight of the giant locomotives, "dragging the mail, express, baggage, colonist, day-coach
and tourist cars from the rails, and
down the bank.
What seems very strange i3 both
firemen on the'locomotives receivr
ed only slight injuries, 'while their
engineers were both killed. Fireman Finnie,- of head engine 496,
was firjng when the engine commenced to climb the snow bank.
He instandy jumped and reached
safety before the-engine was more
than a few feet down the bank.
The Engineer of the same "engine,
Clifford Carscadden, went to the
bottom of the hill, and was found
shortly after lying among some
rocks, in a dying condition.
Engineer > Foster, and Fireman
Cranston of engine 841, were both
in their seats in^thecab, and were
ftarriftd half way down the hill,
.where the , engine brought up.
There Cranston was able to make
his escape, but Engineer Foster
was scalded to death.'
A number of woman were in the
coaches at the time of the accident,
and all sustained more ■ or less
severe cuts and bruises. As soon
as the train landed at the bottom of
the declivity, the uninjured passengers climbed out, and began at
once rendering . what assistance
they could, to their less fortunate
companions. Invaluable assistance
was given by two trained nurses
who were on the train, Mrs. J. N.
Tice and Mrs. J. W. Brigg. They
were assisted by Mrs. D. Currie, of
Boston, who was travelling on the
train with her husband. The
splendid work achieved by these
ladies, has earned the warm thanks
of the sufferers and also railway
The telegraph wires were broken
down by the train, as it slid down
the embankment, ■ thereby cutting
off communications. ' The nearest
points were Spuzzum to the east
and Yale to the west, so brakeman
Mitchell was dispatched to Spuzzum, 3 1-2 miles distant, to get
help,. Meanwhile however, Watchman S. Urquhart got busy with' the
wires at the break. He cut out the
telephone wire and got into com-
,munication with'Yale, from which
place the t ne'vya ^was > sent to the
General Superintendent at Vancouver?    A wrecking and belief
train was then made up, and inside of one hour it pulled out with
doctors and nurses.
The splendid organization and
equipment of the C. P. R. were
shown by the speed-\in getting
ready the wrecking and relief train,
which was made up ready to start
twenty-five .minutes after word had
been received, and only delayed
to wait for the doctors, In a little
over 3 hours it had covered the
100 odd miles to Yale, and within
about 4 hours of receiving the
the message, the injured were receiving medical attention, and
wrecking crews were busy removing the debris.
The C.P.R. officials threw open
the dinning room during the afternoon, for everyone, free' of cost,
and everyone was supplied with a
good meal. Tea, coffee and food
were supplied to .anyone who
asked, during the remainder of the
time spent at the scene of the accident - , ' -
All the passengers speak very
highly in praise of the train, crew,
who did all possible, to relieve'the
travellers. ,
An inquiry into tbe cause of 'death of
Miss Eva Norrie, who was found dead in
the Lake View Hotel on Thursday, was
held in the Court House on Friday, by
Coroner Morris of Vernon. The following
gentlemen formed the jury.. Foreman, Mr.
Mantle, Jurymen, Messrs. Wilkinson,
Marsden, Meikle, Knowles, Muirhead and
Morgan. After viewing the body at the
hotel, the jury returned to the court house.
' Dr. Huycke's deposition was taken, to the
effect that the deceased was unknown to
him, but that be had been called in about
9 o'clock, and told by deceased's nurse,
Miss' juckes, that Miss Norrie bad killed
herself. Examination showed a bullet
wound in her right temple, and in her
right hand a revolver, whilst the wound
was Slackened with powder. The room
was in no disorder, and deceased was ly-'
ing with a peaceful expression and had
been dead he thought, four or five  hours.
After the medical testimony, Miss
Juckes, the nurse, gave evidence. She
had been in attendance on the deceased
for the past four or  five  weeks,, having
been engaged by Dr. D. G. Perry, of Vancouver. Miss Norrie was unknown to her
previous to this. They arrived in Kelowna
about ten days ago from Hot Springs.
Miss Norrie had been in a low state of
nealth for about nine months, suffering
from down-spiritedness and melancholia,
and had been very restless since coming
to Kelowna. The deceased had never
suggested tKat she would do away with
herself, tho' seemed fearful of going out of
her mind. Miss Juckes never saw the
revolver before, and did not-know that her
patient had one. It must have been purchased before coming to Kelowna, as
nurse and patient were always together
here. Further evidence was* given
showingvdeceased .to be suffering from
severe depression, but that she bad been
brighter the .last few days.
, Chief Hidson.was' then, called,^up, and
gave evidence that he accompanied Dr.
Huycke to the room, and found the lady
dead. He produced the revolver, which
was a small 22 calibre Iver Johnson, in
court. It was loaded with five cartridges,
one of which had been discharged. An
examination of the room showed - nothing
in disorder, but a letter was found addressed to Dr. D. G. Perry, and dated 6th
Jan., in which deceasecLsaid she felt she
waa going out of her mind, and felt very
ill and depressed.
.' Mr. F. C. Gould was tailed upon, and
testified that deceased had registered on
4th Jan., at the Lake View Hotel.,
. No one in the hotel appeared to have
heared the ahot, which however, is easily
accounted for by the small calibre of the
'; After consulting, the jury found that
Mist Norrie met ber death ,by her own
hand,'when under the influence of intense
'depression," "     ""   *" '
Rev, F. W. Patterson of Calgary, was
present at the Baptist Church, dedication
at Summerland last Sunday.
The dedication service took place" in the
afternoon, and a good size congregation
was present, to hear Mr. Patterson diseourse
in a very able manner, on the functions of
the church as a spiritual institution.
At the conclusion of the discourse, the
pastor read over a form of dedication, to
which the deacons and heads of all departments of work gave assent on behalf of the
A feature worthy of copy, was that no
special appeal for help at the service was
made, the pastor observing that" inasmuch
as the other bodies had their own burdens
to carry, it had been deemed wise in a
canvass previously made, not to solicit
their help, but if any felt disposed to assist,
their contributions would be gratefully
acknowledged, as a matter of $800.00 had
to be met to pay for materials as far as they
had gone.

Just to give our new council
something to start on, we would
like to mention again the need of
a fire brigade. The urgent necessity of this is plain to all, and it
would be the poorest-kind of econ-
drhy to put'it off "until after a fire.
One man alone has last year done
nearly' forty seven'thousand dollars
worth of/building,' chiefly within
the' business section. All' this
property, as well as buildings erected by others, are unprotected.
The action of Mayor DeHart
and his Council in this connection
will be watched with interest by a
large number of business men.

It is with general regret that the
city hears of the resignation of two
of Kelowna's most able counsellors, Messrs. T. W. Stirling and W.
H. Gaddes, who have been active
members of the City Council for
the past two years. It was hoped
that Mr. Stirling would be willing
to accept the mayorality at the recent election, and a petition signed
almost unanimously asking him to
do so, but for reasons of health,
he had to refuse.
As chairman of the finance committee, Mr. Stirling gave the city
his faithful services, coupled with
a business ability, which we can ill
afford to lose,. and on the health
committee he was most zealous.
Dr. W. A. Gaddes, also has won
the respect of the citizens by the
diligent discharge of duties entrusted to his care. During the
past year, his position as chairman
of the fire and light department,
has called for a lot of time and^
study, given free to the city.
Both these gentleman did exceptionally good work whilst on the
council, and the confidence reposed in them, by the ratepayers,
shown by the last election in which
Dr. Gaddes was returned by acclamation in'the north ward and
Mr. Stirling* headed the list in the
south, was expressive of the esteem
in which they are held generally.
It seems a great pity that the
policy of the return members
could not be dove tailed with that
of the new, and it appears to be
true that a man will cheerfully submit to any kind of hard usage so
long as his politics and his religion
are left inact.
The other members of the old
council are well known to all.
Messrs. Buckland, Curts and De-
Hart, and were all active in pro-
moting-the city's_interests.—Mrr
Buckland, supporting the policy of
the old council, came out by the
request of that council and many
ratepayers, to make a fight for the
mayoralty but was defeated with
honors.' His defeat simply shows
the opinion of the ratepayers'in
desiring a change of policy, but
his good service on the board of
works' is hot forgotten, and Mr.
Buckland retires from the scene
with all honour. . .
The election followed so close
after the - nominations, no candidates' meeting being held, that the
general public have heard little or
nothing of the intentions of the
new council, and until the new
members are elected, comment on
the p'eraonel of our city' directorate
- would be a little hasty.
- The choice of our new Mayor,
however, is an  extremely popular
one, and is a further recognition of
his recent good work for the city.
"Frank" as he is popularly knoVn,
came out at the last minute, but
' went  in- with   a   majority   large
enough to give him  confidence in
any line of action which he may
have mapped out for the coming

lot more, and We heartily congratulate him in securing the' highest
the city has to offer. ,'
A petition is lying in the office
of Messrs. Hewetson & Mantle, regarding Swamp Road, on the way
to South Okanagan. The road is
both steep and narrow, and has
also a very sharp curve. There
have been several accidents here
during ths past two or three years
on account of the road being so
narrow, and the present slippery
condition renders it much more
dangerous. This petition which is
being signed by all residents of
that district, is to ask the government to widen the road. All interested are requested'to sign.
Mr. R. Morrison, Senr., late city clerk, a
well known citizen in Kelowna passed
away on Saturday last, leaving a large
number of sorrowing friends and relatives.
Mr. Morrison had been laid aside since last
July with diabetes, although his end was
not expected so soon. On Friday night he
seemed to fail rapidly, although that day
he had been sitting up, and on Saturday,
his heart, weakened by the ravages of
sickness, gave out. He leaves a widow,
and grown up family of four sons, Thomas,
Robert, Alexander and Charles, the last
living at Virden, Man., and three daughters,
Mrs. D. Campbell Mrs. Davies and Miss
Kathleen Morrison."-*':-
The funeral took place last Monday.
The service at the house, conducted by
the Rev. A. W. K. Herdman, assisted by
Rev. Mr. Russell was very impressive.
Mr. Herdman remarked that in Mr. Morrison, a.familiar figure was gone from our
streets, one who had in a quiet way impressed his character on the community.
"He is missed," said the' preacher, "from
the church, where in health his seat on
Sabbath days was never vacant." Mr.
Herdman very feelingly referred to the
deceased as one who had from the first
treated him with unvarying kindness
and courtesy. "A man of few words, yet
he rang clear." He was sure that he
voiced the sentiments of all, when he said
that the community sympathized with the
family in this and their other late bereavements.  '
A very large concourse of people_ assembled, and many were unable to find
room in the house.
The funeral procession started for the
cemetery about 2:45, and it was noted that
no one seemed to want to drive their
horses faster than a walk. A number
lingered behind at the grave. The members of the City Council acted as pall
bearers, along with Mr. Doyle, a life long
friend of the deceased.
Mr, Morrison, was in his 66th.year.

Heavy Snowfall in London.
The early pan of this month, brought a
heavy fall of snow'over London, such as
has not been experienced since 1881. It
,was a regular blizzard, the snow.falling in
fine dry powder, accompanied by bitterly
cold winds. Trains were blocked up
and passengers suffered considerable discomfort THe vehicular traffic was serious-
ly obstructed; and'outdoor labour stopped.
In one way it was a good thing, as it gave
thousands of, unemployed work clearing
the streets, etc.

Unemployed Invade Marquis of Bute's
A momentous step has been taken by
the unemployed at Cardiff.   Five hundred
starving, .unemployed   men,   whose wives
and children are crying  for  bare  sustenance, invaded the great baronial  estate of
the Marquis of Bute-on  the   14th  of this
month,   and  commenced  digging up the
land in order  to  plant crops.     The men
have  armed themselves,  and  will  resist
arrest and bloodshed is threatened.    This
action, taken by men who up to the  present  have  been  law-abiding,  shows  that
conditions are desperate, and  the present
invasion was brought about largely by the
sight of a hunting party  organized  at the
Butes, when a  small  company  of sleek,
well fed  mortals,   hunted  over preserves
that would give the poor, starving wretches
sustenance, if thrown open to them.
The land reserved by the Marquis for
hunting, comprises thousands of acres of
fertile land, on which numbers of farms
could be planted, but at present of use for
nothing except to furnish amusement for
his lordship.
it is felt that a plunge has been taken,
and emissaries have been sent to London
to urge upon the House of Commons, the
necessity of supporting a bill to throw
open all the hunting preserves in the
United Kingdom/ to the people.

The exact location of Davy Jones'
locker Is not shown on any ocean chart

ami not a place, but. if .any one ocean
dentil "trap deservea the title It Is the
Thames estuary. The British'naval
department has a chart- upon which
it marks the position of wrecks'with
n black dot On this chart tho Thames
mouth tract is a solid black spot:--; So
numerous have been the wrecks that
the dots run together. The point
where the. black dots actually pile one
on top of another is the Kentish Knock,
and this is the place among all of the
ocean's danger'spirts' that'"deserves'the
title -of Davy Jones' locker. '• '■:*' ' -

Another danger point dreaded by the
master mariner lias neither sand nor
rocks,, but a; great-submarine waterfall.
In the English channel there Is a p'oint
just beyond the Shambles banks where
there-Is a'sudden drop In the sea bottom. The channel tides sweep over

The carnival 'at the skating rink
last Friday was a great success,
and-the rink was filled with spectators. No less than seventy-two
costumes appeared on the' ice, all
oi which were very good, and
formed a bright display of colour,
the hand, under the leadership of
Dan Campbell, furnishing music
Ijvery acceptably. The prize for
the best lady's costume, was won
by Miss Walt, as "Brittania," and
consisted of an all-over silk blouse,
donated by Lawsons Ltd. Dan
Rankin/ in the garb of that man
who couldn't tell a lie, took the
prize for the best gentleman's costume, this was a toilet set presented
by Crawford & Co. The best
comic costume.was adjudged to be
that of(. Win. Pettigrew, ^who was
made' up as a squaw - man. The
prize for this was a writing case
presented by Lequime Bros. In
the boys and girls competition, the
prizes were carried away by Charlie and Nettie Harvey, dressed . to
represent and Indian' boy - and
flower girl. Their rewards were a
pair of hockey skates for the boy
and a fan for the girl; The judges
were Messrs., F. R. E. DeHart,'^W.
B. M. Calder arid Thos. Lawson.
Stones and Glass Houses.
The origin of the saying, "Those who
live in glass houses should not throw
stones," is as follows: At the time of
the union of England and Scotland
London was inundated with Scotchmen, and the London roughs used to
go about at night breaking their windows. Buckingham being considered
the chief Instigator of the mischief, a
party of Scotchmen smashed the windows of the duke's mansion, known as
the Glass House. The court favorite
appealed to the king, who replied,
"Steenie, Steenie, those who live In
glass houses should be careful how
they fling stones!"

In the early days of the Socialist movement it was entirely a class struggle, a
struggle between poverty and wealth, between labour and capital, but altho the
smoke of battle is still thickest where labour and capital meet, we may say that for
the last quarter of a century the field has
been widening with marvellous rapidity
until it has become an almost universal
question of political economy. It would
be easy to fill columns of this paper in the
support of this statement, not from socialistic writers merely, but from men of every
shade of political opinion, and from ministers of every branch of the Christian
Church. Its leading exponents are not
economists, but scientists, preachers, authors, doctors, poets and journalists are
alike ranged under its banner and to attempt to stop its resistless flow would be
as vain as an attempt to mop up the Pacific ocean.
The fact of the matter lies just here, that
political economist and statesmen are con-
vincedthat the present individualistic system
is baneful and its continuance impossible.
John Morley in his 'Life of Cobden,' vol.
I. ch XIII p.p. 298-303, says "the answer of
modem statesmanship is that unfettered,
unindividual competition is not a principle
to which the regulation of industry may be
Dr. Ingram, in his article on "Political
Economy" in Ency, Britt., says "The mere
conflict of private interests will never produce a well-ordered commonwealth of
labour." And in a recent speech at Swansea,'Oct. lat, I'508, Lloyd George, the Liberal Chancellor of the Exchequer spoke in
no unmistakable language of the misrule :
of Capitalism. He said "The day will
'come and that day is,not far distant, when
this country wilL shudder at that state of
things when it was rolling in wealth. I say
again that apart from its inhumanity and
its essential-injustice, it is robbery, it is confiscation of what is the workman's share of
the riches of the land." Socialists have
been jeered at, for talking like, that, and
nearly two thousand years ago, James, the
brother of Jesus, said practically the same
thing. "Behold the hire of the labourers
who mowed your fields, which is of you
kept back by fraud, crieth'out: and the
cries of them'that reaped have entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabbath." (Jas.
V. 4.) Away back in the dim and hazy
history of the past; ever since the Israelites
had to make bricks without straw.the toilers
and the moilers have been crying out for
mercy and for justice. So importunate
has been the pleading that the Christian
Church, which for so' long has been the
bitterest'antagonist of Socialism, is' to-day
giving many of its pulpits to the proclamation of the Social gospel. Socialism was
the topic of the president of the Church
Congress last year.' It is the basal element
in the preaching of the leading prophets of
non-conformity today in England, the Rev.
R. J. Campbell and Rev. Dr. Clifford of
London. Surely the foregoing ought to
convince the timorous that there is nothing
unjust in the fundamental teaching of
Socialism, which is the appropriation of
the means of wealth production <• from the
Capitalist class. It is an axiom in Socialism that no man has a moral right to hold
as private property what is essential for'the
weal of the community. '
Take  for  example  the   land  question.
The absurdity of the present arrangement
and the justice of the Socialistic claims are
clearly shown by Rev. R. J.  Campbell  in
his   recent' book   'Christianity   and   the
Social Order."   He says,  that  nearly  the
whole of Great Britain is owned  by about
180,000 landlords, and they  have  a  legal
right to say to the 40  odd   millions (very
odd millions we should say to allow  such
aTtate of"afFairs)"who make up tHeTesTof
the population, "Get off.''    Have you ever
though of that >     Just  as  surely  as you
have a legal right to remove me  off your
ten acres of Prime Jonathans so each  one
of these 180,000 in  Great Britain has a
loyal right to clear his tenants off his land
if he required it for some other purpose.
(This is actually being done in a small way
by evictions in Ireland to make   room  for
•hooting for the Lord High Muck-a-Mucks.
Now what would'the moat  conservative
government in   the   world   say  to  these
landlords  if  they  unitedly  hatched   this
mad idea in their brains ? '    It would not
tolerate it for a  moment,   but  would tell
the landlords that in  spite  of  their  legal
claims they had   no  moral   claim   to  the
land as it was required for the sustenance
of the p'eople.   The same would apply
equally to the mine owners; factory owners
and   transportation   companies,   and   yet
when'Socialists talk of the  transference of
these, means  of  wealth  production  from
the private ownership of capitalists .to the
public control of the people, holy hands of
horror are held upi and  people say "Ye
gods it doth amaze me."   The  thing that
amazes us is that the people who have the
brains to see the injustice   of the  present
position,   hypothctically,   cannot  see   the
injustice of it practically..
Here in the sunny Okanagan we live
under the most ideal conditions, and we
are tempted to be lulled into a blissful indifference .to the great questions which are
stirring the hearts'and brains of the worlds
best citizens, but the evils which are proving such a canker in the vitals of the leading countries of the world today have already laid the clammy hand of putrifaction
and decay on the land of the Lady, of
of, Snows. Now is the accepted time for
Canada to face the evils of capitalism, ndt j
tomorrow, not in a little while, but today)
Frozen to Death'in Saskatchewan.
William Evans, an English homesteader,
living 2 1-2 miles north of Waterous,
Sask., was frozen to death on the 9th inst.,
when walking from the town to nis shack.
His footsteps led to his own door, and he
had evidently tried to make his ,way. to a
neighboring shack, I -2 mile away, but was
overcome with the cold.
Sunday Cars for Edmonton.
A committee of the Edmonton Council
waited on the Alberta Government'recent-
ly, and asked that the city be * allowed to
operate Sunday street cars. They- were
assured that the' necessary amendments
would be passed at the next session of the
legislature to allow the operation of Sunday cars.
Train Wreck Near Maple Creek..
A rear end collison of two eastbound,
freight trains took place on Jan. 4th tnear
Maple Creek, resulting in the death of
Brakeman B. S. Porter of Medicine Hat,
and Fireman J. D. King who resides at
Maple Creek. Engineer Degon and Brake-
man Tanmount were also seriously injured.
One of the trains was laden with a million
dollars worth of silk, and fire breaking out
in the wreck destroyed about $16,000 of
NominMiDnsfor Aldermen.
Toronto Unemployed.
Toronto is'having considerable trouble
with her unemployed, and about five
hundred men visited the city hall recently,
creating uneasiness and excitmeut, until
they were finally turned out by the police.
The men went down to Bayside Park,
where they were advised by so-called
Socialists to take food and clothing from
the stores of the city.
Potatoes for Vancouver.
The last few days has looked as .though
Vancouver would have to strike potatoes
off the menu, as the supply has been very
short. A week ago, there was only a
a matter of- 500 tons left in the city, and
Sumas, Ashcroft, Abboteford and Kamloops districts, the usual sources of supply,
have suffered so severly from frost, that
they will be unable to supply Vancouver.
The 'Province' says, "Up in the Okanagan
matters are different, and possibly supplies
may be able to be sent from there."

hotel keepers, so'that they will not buy
any more cigars than they are sure of
selling in a short time.

Dr. Leyds Pardoned and Pensioned.
Dr. Leyds, wha,was the, right hand of
Kruger, and largely responsible for the
Boer war, has,npt only been pardoned by
the British Government, and allowed to return to the scene of his 'former activities,
but has also been 'rewarded for his services.- m \ -''" * " '. '
•,~The "Mail an'd'Empire" says that the
pension to Leyds may bex susceptible of a
very ^simple expjanation. "It^ will be remembered that though Leyds 'out-Kruger-
ed' Krueer in his( ^hostility to ,the British
Government, he .was suspected^ of having
betrayed the Boers when he saw that their
cause was'doomed.'" At-the time that
Leyds' vanished/ «/also did large sums of
money entrusteH'to him by Oom Paul, to
spend on, behalf'of Boer refugees in Eur-
ope. When reproached Jor.not helping
penniless refuges, Leyds pleaded .extreme
poverty, and this plea has been accepted
officially by the British Government /

Keep Cool and Remember and Follow
These Instructions.
In case of fire, if the burning
jirlk'les are at once splashed and
sprayed, with a solution of salt and
nitrate of ammonia an incombustible
i-oatlng is formed This is a prepara
tion which can be made at home at n
trifling cost, and should be kept on
hand. Dissolve twenty pounds of common salt and ten pounds of nitrate of
ammonia in seven gallons, of water.
Pour this into quart bottles of thin
glass and Ore grenades are at hand
ready for use. These bottles must be
Lightly corked and .sealed to prevent
evaporation, and inNcase of fire they
must be thrown near the flames, so us
to break and liberate the gas contained. At least two dozen of these
bottles should be ready for an emeix
"in this connection it is well to remember that water on burning oil scatters tho flames, but that flour will ex

if the chimney is burning will help to
deaden the blaze. If a fire once gets
under headway and prompt exit be
comes a necessity, a Bilk handkerchiel
dipped iu water and wrapped about
.the mouth and nostrils will prevent
suffocation from smoke; failing this, a
piece of wet flannel will answer.
Should smoke, fill the room, recall
your physics—remember that /smoke
goes first to the top of the room and
last to the floor. Wrap a blanket oi
woolen garment about you, with the
wet cloth over your face, drop on your
hands and knees and crawl to the window. Bear In mind that there Is uo
more danger in getting down from a
three story window than from the first
floor If you keep a firm hold of the
Vope or ladder.   Do not slide, but go
hand over hand.
