Meeting of the
City Council
Cemetery By-law Finally
A meeting of the council waa
held last Saturday,' the Mayor, Aid.
Leckie, Copelar.d, Jones and Dalgleish being present. The minutes
disposed of, the following accounts
were referred to the finance~com-
mitte for payment:

'.-' The by-law for the regulation of
the cemetery was then taken up
and with very little discussion was
" re-considered and finally passed."
An application was read from
Constable MacRae for a uniform-
to be supplied by the council, or
in lieu, an increase in salaty.
. Several of the aldermen express-
eel their approval of Constable
MacRae'as a most efficient officer,
And thought it was desirable that
he should wear a proper uniform
which would help tp maintain the
'dignity of his position.
A motion was accordingly passed
that the council-provide a suitable
uniform for the Chief of Police.
Attention was diawn to the fact
that the watering of the streets
would have to be resumed, as the
dust nuisance had arisen again as
the result of the fine weather.
Aid. Dalgleish announced that
he had already engaged a team
for the purpose.
As some alterations were
necessary to the street watering bylaw, it was decided tp "take the
matter up at the next meeting.
Aid. Leckie suggested that the
stand-pipe arrangement in front of
the Fire Hall, which had been used
for filling the water cart should be
done away with. It was a source
of expense, as the stopcock froze
up every winter and cost $10 in
the spring to renew. He suggested
that the cart be equipped with a
short length of hose which could
be readily attached to any of the
hydrants. This method would not
only be quicker, but it would often
save long journeys to and from the'
filling place.
Aid. Dalgleish mentioned that
, the city would have to be looking
; around for a nuisance ground, as
he did not think the present land
would be available after the lease
had expired. He had spoken to
the owners about it, and they had
complained: of the " way in which
the ground waa kept Heaps of
bottles and cans were distributed
ail-over the -placs,^ -
Aid. Leckie said there were
several big holes to fill on some of
the. new streets. He suggested
that the bottles and cans might be
dumped there for a time. They
'■ would help to fill up.
The meeting then adjourned
until Saturday, April 22nd.

the land of their birth or naturalization will be partially suspended
it is stated, from April 15 to September 30 in order to give the
railroad contractors apportunity to
obtain men for the vast amount of
railway construction being projected for the summer season.
The precise regulation is, Privy
Council otder, No. 920. It was on
July 14, 1910, suspended for three
months, as the contractors were unable to secure sufficient labour. In
connection with the suspension of
the order, it is added, however",
thatthe applicants for admission
must produce evidence to show
that they are going to railway construction jobs. Laborers from the
south of Europe will not be allowed to enter Canada, the change

Automatic Guns Barred
in Duck Shooting
Bv an order-in-council just passed
by the provincial * executive, the
future use of automatic guns by
British Columbia sportsmen has
been prohibited as from the first
of September next. These guns
have only come into general use
during the past few years, been,
particularly favored by duck hunti%
ers, who with them have been enabled to slaughter the ducks by
wholesale. The general opinion is
that their use is the reverse of sportsmanlike and the action taken by
the|government will meet with the
cordial approval of true sportsmen
in all parts of the country.
By a second order-in-council a
closed season for sheep during the
ensuing two years has been prescribed in the districts of Yale, Okanagan, and Similkameen and another year of immunity has been

Drank From Wrong Glass
At the Leroi mine at Rossland,
last Wednesday, James Fuller, the
surveyor and assayer, was eating
his iunch when he reached out for
a beaker of water. There was no
one else with him at the time, and
it is supposed he picked up a beaker of potassium cyanide by mistake
and drank it.
F. S. Peters, who was in another
office, heard his telephone ring,
and on answering it, he heard
Fuller's voice shout " Oh, Peters I
and then there was silence. The
foreman hurried to Fuller's office,
but found him lying on some steps
about 5.0 feet aw«y.
He breathed once or twice, then
died without a word. On examination made at his office it was
ascertained that there was a beaker
was a beaker of water on the table
and a beaker of potassium cyanide
upset. Fuller had a sandwich in
his hands when his body was
By an order in council passed at
the protracted meeting of the provincial executive last Wednesday
night, the amended law transferring
all matters incidental to the registration of births, marriages and
deaths from the attorney general's
to the provincial secretary's department was brought into operation
and effect as from the first of the
provincial fiscal year, April 1 st, Dr.
C. J. Fagan becoming registrar. It
is announced as the intention of
the department to see that this Act
is hereafter very strictly enforced,
and under it clergymen are henceforward required to make returns
for all marriages performed by
them within forty-eight hours after
their solemnization.
The registration law in respect
of births, deaths and marriages has
in the past been very much of a
dead letter. Deaths, as a rule,
have been promptly recorded by
the undertakers, for the reason
primarily that the filing of registration forma is necessarily precedent
to the issuance of burial permits.
With regard to births and marriages,
however, almost inconceivable
laxity ha? been permitted.
Recent investigations of an informal nature disclosed that in the
chief population centres of- the
province, a considerably greater
number of children have been
christened or baptized than the
official show to have been born;
while with respect to marriages,
the practice of-the clergy appears
to have been to keep their filing
certificates together until a considerable number have accumulated.
One clergyman visiting the land
registry office a few months ago,
took advantage of the opportunity
afforded by his visit to register.jail
the marriages that he had been
performing during a residence in
Victoria of upwards of twenty
Hereafter it will be advisable for
clergymen, and all others upon
whom the legal obligation of registration rests to see that such
registration takes place within the
prescribed period, as otherwise the
penalties provided by the Act will
be rigorously enforced.      ...

Winter Sports in the
Rocky Mountains
Swiss Guides Imported From
• Announcement has been officially made that the Canadian Pacific
Railway hotels in the mountains
will be kept open all winter in
future for the benefit of tourists
who prefer the attractions of the
snows to the delights of summer
in the JSelkirks and Rockies. A
great deal of attention will be paid
it is said to winter sports such as
tobogganing, snow shoeing, skiing,
skating, hockey, sleighing, and ice-
boating, and it is hoped to make
the well-known resorts on the railway system in British Columbia
and Alberta just as popular in
winter as in summer. The success
which the hotels in Switzerland
have met in encouraging such recreation as this for winter tourists
fro.i. Great Britain and America, it
is believed, can also be achieved
here. Already skiing, which is
comparatively new in Western
Canada, has gained a very prominent place among winter pastimes
throughout the Rockies. '■/
The construction of the Swiss
village of Edelweiss, about a mile
west of Golden, in which the hardy
Swiss guides being brought from
Europe for the CP.R. mountain
hotels are to live, will be.conpi-

stated. The contract for the construction of the cottages in the village has been awarded by the
company to a Calgary firm.
Campaign Against
Bovine Tuberculosis
No Encouragement to
Negro Immigrants
7 The movement to Canada of
negroes- from Oklahoma has received its -latest check on the
British Columbia boundary.
Canadian immigration inspectors
at Blaine have turned back the
party of forty which on Thursday
reached White Rock, Boundary
station, in a special car, presumably
for Alberta, The ground of rejection was physical unfitness,
several of the party having tuberculosis. While these were the
only ones barred from entering
Canada by the inspectors those
physically sound and otherwise
meeting the immigration requirements having plenty of mpney, at
once declined to enter without
their less fortunate relative, and all
returned south.
It is believed that the party
sought to enter the Dominion at
this point-owing to the success of
somt thirty negroes, also from
Oklahoma, in December, who passed through Vancouver in that
month by way of Blaine, bound for
Alberta, in the northern part of
which a number have already
taken.up free homesteads, for there
is no law preventing American-
negroes entering Canada fbr this
purpose who have health and
" Immigration officers here and

because the authorities do not
think he will do well in Canada's
An important circular notification
to all agriculturists and dairymen
with respect to the necessity of
exerting all possible endeavour to
secure the stamping out of bovine
tuberculosis is being sent out by
the live stock commissioner for the
province, Mr. M. A. Jull.
In his communication to the
directly interested parties, ihe live
steck commissioner deals with the
subject at length. He says in part:
"British Qolumbia has probably
not had so much of the disease as
other parts where the dairy industry has been highly developed,
such as in some of the eastern
states; however, we have enough
to give us sufficient cause to take
every precaution for its eradication.
While there is yet little of it, we
should see that it is entirely eradicated in order that our dairymen
may be in a position to breed
healthy herds and produce wholesome milk.
" While there are many features
concerned in the eradication of this
disease and while various methods
have been adopted in-other parts,
it is to 'be seen that in British
Columbia the work has been progressing favourably. One significant
feature in our work is ihe cooperation on the part of the dairymen. Many of our dairymen are
anxious to maintain herds free
from the disease and are having,
their herds officially tested and
premises inspected by the provincial veterinary inspectors, of
which" there are four in the province.
On the other hand, many: dairymen
have little or no knowledge of the
disease and do not realize the importance ^of its eradication. This
depattiiicnt has -been .carrying on
educational work rhroughout the
province, in an endeavour to show
our dairymen the nature of the
disease and why it should be
eradicated from our herds.
"It is possible that the general
public does not realize the material
assistance the government is giving
them by compensating them for
all slaughtered^ animals which are
affected by the disease.,; This is
more than is being done in any
other part and the responsibility of
completely eradicating the disease
largely lies with dairymen. Anyone wishing to have their herds
tested and their dairy premises inspected should apply to Dr. A.
Knight, chief veterinary inspector,
Sardis, B. C, under whose charge
the work is being carried on."
A settler, by starting fires in the
bush, between Penticton and Dog
lake, caused a serious conflagration
last week which threatened the
south and residential part of the
town. Practically every able-bodied man in Penticton was out, fighting the flames. By back-firing
several acres of dry. brush the
danger was finally averted.

tourist and its _iii?i-n- nre noted
especially tor thi-ir en- i >.y. For rapid

on the continent. William t_. Curti3,
of The Chicago R.-eord Hen.ld, wjites
very interestinj.'".y concerning thia
German city. Among oth"r things he
Although it is so old ..nd in several
respects so antiqupted. Hnnover is.
one of the most enterprising cities in
Germany, and i.- trrowintr a? rapidly
as some of the boomed ci'7.»_? df Amor.
ica. The populatiin in 1940 was 27,-
000, in 1850 it v.-a* 49.909. in 18S0 ,'t
was 106,667, in 1900 it was 266,753 inhabitants, an increase oi 33.000 during
the last 10 year?, or an average of
3,000 a year. Mo?t of the newcomers
are from the country districts, being
attracted to the city by its commercial and industrial a:lvantages. Almost every industry is represented
among the factories, and tl.e energy
and enterprise of tlio population has
been recognized tir a mind red years.
Hanover was the first town in Europe
to use gas; it was one of the first to
use electricity; it wa? the second to
run street cars, and the second to
adopt asphaltum for pavements.
The business section of the city is
built up closely with fine Inrsje
blocks of modern building?. The-
residence portion will compare favorably with any other city in Germany,
but it is a question whet hi-r the people" are prouder of the mrxlern palaces
and the broad streets upon which
they stand or the old part of the city,
with its .antiquated architecture and
its narrow, crooked, lanelike thoroughfares. In the old town you c.an
see where tho ford was frt in which
the city derived its name. Six high-
ways running from different part.-;
of Germany concentrated at a shnl-
low place in the Lcine river, the
Hohen Ufer, as' it was called, a
phrase that was gradually corrupted
into Hanover.
Queer  English Custom.
Persons aspiring to become bailiff
at Alnwick, Kiig.auir. have to go
through a curious and somewhat unpleasant ordeal. Before the election
the various candidates ride up in a
body to a horse pond and, there dismounting from their steeds, plunge
into the water and struggle as best
they may to the other side. The mu=ic
of a brass band cheers them during
their struggles in the dirty water.
This ancient custom dates from tlie
reign of King John, who once paid a
visit to the town in 1210 and found
no fitting welcome prepared for him.
The bbime for this state of unprepar-
edness was fastened on the luckless
bailifls, who wcra promptly thrown
into the horse pond l>y royal command.
The Sicilian Vespers.
Tht Sicilian Vespers is the term
given to the massacre of the French
in Sicily. March 30. 1232. On Easter
Monday conspirators assembled ut
Palermo, and while the French were
engaged in festivities a Sicilian bride
passed by with her train. A Frenchman used her -ndely. and a young
Sicilian stabbed him on the spot.
The populace ran through the city
crying out, "Let the French die!
and without distinction of rank, age
or Bex slaughtered all the Frenchmen they could find. About 8,000
were massacred. Not ever, the
churches were allowed to become a
sanctuary (or them. The massacre
was general throughout the island.
New Zealand Dairy Exports.
New Zealand is becoming yearly
an increasing exporter of cheese and
butter to the British market, a great
development of the cheese-making industry especially having taken place
within the last few years, ln 1903 the
total export of cheese was 8,356.432
pounds of the value of $383,806. For
1910 the quantity as above noted was
49,491,008 pounds of the value of $5,-
770,426, while for the first quarter of
the current year (April 1 to June 30)
the quantity-exported 'ssas 15,308,043
pounds, of the value or $1,782,495.—

Abdul Hamid with a half million as.
sassinatious t.  give  it  the  vilest  of

from Salonica,  his place of  banishment, are conflicting concerning his
, Old Abdul Hamid, cruel persecutor,
are you alive? Is your brain suffering
.tht visions of many whom you killed
and cast into the depths of the seas?
Are you cror.^ii'iin along the musty
floors of a dark and hideous cell, yout
craven fingers seeking for a crevice
that will let in a little light? Do
your eyes peer from hollow sockets

Are you sapped of the last drops of

justly penalizing you.. But if you
have passed from your torment to a
greater unknown, only the. horrifying
thought of your transgressions will

. The Ottoman empire has furnished
the world some of its most trepid incongruities. But none has been so;
nauseating as.the career of this old
wretch. From the time of his youth
to his overthrow by the Young Turks
he has been the incarnation of all that
is., wicked.
! It is said that his mother was a
slave of Armenian origin. She was a
dancer in the household of his father's
sister, ISsmJ-Sultana. When a young,
man it was noticd that he was unlike the other children of the court.
He was sad, taciturn and melancholy.
Though his face was tho personifica-
tion of innocence and youth there was
an apparent expression of cunning to
|th< s who can detect evidence of a
'hidden characteristic. .
',. One day the youngster met & gypsy
(fortune teller who read his palm. She
Itold him that some day he would sit
on the throne. The suggestion was all
ithe dreamer needed to begin his plan-
Ining. Han. he undoubtedly did for
.'power, to mete out cruelty. After this
•he devoted days and nights to sor-
;cerers and magicians. With much of
hi; time occupied in this manner, yet
jhe had time for a romance or two.
! A beautiful golden-haired maiden,
jMUe. Flora Cordler, a Belgian mo-
idiste, chanced to pass through the
'crowded streets of Constantinople. She
.became aware that a sallow, dark-eyed
Iboy on horseback had his eyes riveted
jon her. She paid no attention to
jbim and was aroused to anger when
Jhe attempted to speak to her.   She
Sassed  along  thinking  the  incident
ad closed.   The next day she was
surprised to  receive a note from a
member of the royalty.  The note contained the startling information that
Prince Abdul Hamid  would like to
make her acquaintance.  Shy, and modest,  as she   was,   the  information
played on her vanity.    She granted
him an interview which was nothing
i more than the first step in her wretch-
j edness.   He offered to make her his
{legitimate wife and she accepted. She
w-; converted to Islamism and the
world-famed Fatima began her career.
But his love was short-lived and soon
jFatimn disappeared.
I 'Soon after this   he   began  to  plot
against his brother. - He was 33 years
.old when his-brother Murad succeed-
led Abdul-Aziz to the throne.   About
{this time the madness of the Othman
family began to show in the dreamy
young man.   He  told  Midhat-Pasha
that the brother on the throne was a
|helpless madman.   The pasha was the
'great friend of the people and he a&w
that the regent was not the studious
and far-sighted man he hud been before his accession to the throne.   By
the efforts of the pasha aud the connivances of  Hamid  the latter  was
able   to   ascend    the   throne   three
months  rt"Dr  his   brother   replaced
Abdul-Aziz.   His expression of gratitude was in doing away witb his brother and placing Abdul-Aziz, the pa-
troit, in exile..   The new regent destroyed all manner of claim to the
throne by his brother in the event of
his being restored to health and banished al! patriots from the kingdom.
There are many  stories telling how
many of these were killed and their
bodies placed in sacks and cast into
I the seas. N
i He had seen to it that his brother
I would not return from his place of
' confinement. Some time late.' a fire
destroyed the house of Midhat-Pasha.
Ulosely following this a box arrived in
Constantinople addressed to Abdul
Ilamid. In the box was the head of
Midhat-Pasha, the brother of the Sultan. He had been choked to death in
Vis bed. A quarter of a century later
(he head was found in the cellar of
the royal pulnce. Similar persecutions followed during the long career
cf the scheming Sultan until he was
dethroned und cast into exile by the
Yiunlg Turks.
Abdul Humid was bom September

month, 18,500 passengers were
carried from St. John to Montreal
by the C. P. R. which is 5,700
more than the record of March
last year. During the past two
years immigration to Canada has
increased 150 per cent, and during the past few weeks the C. P. R.
has run sixty-one special trains
from St. John to Montreal alone.
Twenty / persons are reported

Curari   Has  Baffled Science for  More
Than  One  Hundred  Years.
For more tlmn n -linn ..red years the
Tiu.nns of the upper Amazon h»ve
biiffied science with t'..e secret of a
p-.i*on which they brew for the purpose of rendering their arrow tips
more deadly. Many of the world's
noted scientists have investigated
into the chemical composition of this
poiaon, but the natives of the Amu
zon have zealously guarded the formula of the brew and effort-, of these
investigntors have been without
avail. Not long ago a professor in a
German university was sent to the
South American wilderness for the
purpose of discovering the hprbs that
were used in making curari. as th*
poison is named. After spending two
years among the various tribes, he
was forced to give up his quest and
was coming out of the country when
he fell in with « a traveler who had
obtained possession of a native blow-
srun. The latter tells how he put
some of the professor's curari on
some of his blowgun arrows, which
nre like toothpicks feathered with
cotton, and tried it on a buck deer in
the forest.
"After a deliberate aim our hunter
fired, if I may use such a word for
the little puff, scarcely heard by us,
and entirely inaudible above the
rustling corn leaves at the distance
of the deer. The animal gave a slight
st.irt ns it felt the prick "of the arrow
on its flank and turned partly around,-
snifling the air for a scent, and look-
ins about as if searching for the insect that had bitten or stung it.
Detecting nothing, it stood still and
unnlarmed. At the end of a minute,
-it a minute and a half at most. it«
head dropped a little, as if it V.as
"When the hunter saw this he arose
and stepped out in plain sight. The
deer turned his head and looked at
him, and moved forward, not away
from him. a few steps, and stopped.
It showed no fear, but simply curiosity. After another minute the professor and I ■ arose, and all,_ three
■valked quietly to within reach of it.
It made no movement to run away.
tint watched us intentlv. and shifted
its .|>osition a little. Its movement*
accrued perfectly easy and natural
Absence of fear was the only observable change, until at the end of three
minutes more; than it lay down, not
tallins, but as naturally as a cow or
sheen when ready for sleep.
"We all approached its sid-., an.l
the huntet laid a hand on its shoul
!er. It looked up at him, but show
■vi no resentment or fear. Even it.-
l>r»athing seemed easy and natural,
which surprised me, as I had heard
.hat death resulted from paralysis
if the lungs when caused by curari.'*
The question naturally arises as to
whether an animal killed in this
■nanner would be edible. The scientist does not tell, but it is safe to
venture that if the meat procured
jiftt-r thia style of hunting were not
poisonous an adapting of this style
in our native wilds might tend to
lescen the annual rate of human
fatality resultant from the heedless
lischarging of rifles.
Dumplings   For   Stew.
One pint of flour sifted before measuring, one-half teaspoonful of salt,
me teaspoonful of cream of tartar
ind oue-half teaspoonful of soda, or
as'.' two level teaspoonsful of baking
powder. Mix with a scant cupful cf
milk. Sift the cream of tartar and
>u!t into the flour, add the baking
<oda in the milk and make a dough
ju.-t so7 enough to handle. Pat it
out one-half inch thick or make it
softer and drop by spoonfuls into the
stew, lie sure to have it boiling and
leave room for the dumplings to
rise. Cook ten minutes. Do not
add any shortening, as that will make
them heavy.
The Push Man Train.
One of the quaintest sights in Japan is the "push man train," a little
railway which runs for nineteen miles
olong the seucoast between Ataroi and
Odawara, taking four hours to complete the journey. lJach car is hauled
and pushed uphill by coolies and then
allowed to run down the next incline
by its own momentum, the coolies
'limping on behind. When skirting
precipices and rounding sharp curves
this becomes somewhat exciting. The
sensation is rather like being in a
runaway switchback car.—Wide Word
Inutinct of tho Mudfish.
The remarkable instinct of the mudfish to roll himself m a ball of uiud
when the dry season approaches is n
wonderful provision of nature intended solely, it would seem, to prevent
the extinction of the species. The
most interesting fact about this fish
•s that it breathes by means of its
gilU when in its native clement and
by means of lungs during its voluntary imprisonment in the mud cocoou.
