FEBRUARY 3, 1911  Price 5 Cents  NEW BANK SHOULD OP  FOR BUSINESS NEXT WE  Manager for  Local   Branch  of Bank of Toronto Now  in Town.  Although the management of  the Bank of Toronto expected the  new branch which is being established in Merritt would be  open for business last Wednesday  circumstances ��� over which they  had no control have made it necessary to postpone the opening  of .their doors.until early next  week.  ..-.-On Thursday evening Mr.  Rodgers, who is to be local manager, arrived, accompanied by his  wife and C. H. Parkinson, his  assistant. Temporarily they have  taken up their residence in the  Coldwater hotel.  The completion of the H. Murk  building, on which the bank has  taken a twelve months' lease, has  been rushed by Fleming & Holly  and the furniture is now being  installed.   The safe and certain  stationery, shipped from Winnipeg some time ago, have not yet  arrived, and a search order has  been issued by the C.P.R.   It is  probable that the tracers will locate the missing shipment within  a few days.    The Bank of Toronto has so far three branches in  the province.     The head office  for British Columbia is situated  in . Vancouver,   with    another  branch in New Westminster. .The  -branch in Merritt wil be the third  in B. C.  Incorporated in 1855, with an  authorized capital of $10,000,000,  of which four million was subscribed for and fully paid up, the  Bank of Toronto is now entering  on 'its 59th year of profitable  business. While, to date, there  are but two branches in the province, the management state that  this is due,to a scarcity of men to  take over branch offices. This is  a difficulty which most of the  banks doing business in B. C.  have to contend ; the; limitless  opportunities for making money  independently having proved irresistible to men familiar with  financial matters,  such qualification���highly prize  handmade work in all branches  of human endeavor���whether it  be in the realm of art, or .simply  the skill necessary in knitting a  pair of sox or building a  "dreamer."  The fair last fall showed what  the ladies in this neck of the  woods are capable of doing with  needle and thimble, the, crochet  hook, etc.    - ,-*.* "������  And now the members of the  Ladies' Aid of the Presbyterian  church are going to letthejmblic1  in on the ground floor-of a good  thing on St. Patrick's day,  Fri-.  day,   March   17th,  in, Menzies'  hall, when they, wjll put\on a sale  of various classes-;, of .handmade  work which bids fair to h\ the  most elaborate thing of the kind  ever held in the valley.    The object of this sale is to raise money,  to assist materially in" wiping off  the   encumbrance   on.the   new  church building in Merritt. While  the object is to raise money for  this worthy cause, the, prices at  which the goods are to be marked will be much' below their real  value, and, needless; .to. say, the  ladies are taking the utmost pride  in their work, i so that1 one may  rest assured that only. goods of  ace high merit will be displaced  upon the "tables.-<' .;'.':.? <:  In the,. evening ^ an . entertainment will be held which the good  ladies purpose making' one of  paramount" pleasure., Full particulars as to" this feature will be  given later in the News.:.  - i  Serious OutBreak  : of Small Pox  HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  A meeting for the election of  officers for the ladies' auxiliary  in connection with the fine_ new.  general hospital soon to.be erected in Merritt, was held Tuesday  afternoon in the upper portion of  Armstrong's new store,  with a  good assemblage of enthusiasts  in the noble work present.    Drr  Williams   opened   the   meeting  with a very appropriate and instructive address. * The "election  of officers, which resulted in some-  close balloting,  but no hair-'pul-.'  ling, stands as follows :        .' - ,"*"  ,   President'-Mrs. Gay. ;  S.

TO ERECT BUILDING  H. Colin Clarke is calling for  tenders for the erection of an office building on his property at  the side of the Merritt Mercantile Company's store.  The building which Mr. Clarke  proposes to erect will be modern  in evei-y way. To the News he  stated that he intends to move into the building as soon as it is  completed, as he finds his present quarters rather cramped.  IUM0RED WAREHI  BE ERE0TED NEAR C. P,  *Thr  "58tlrannual report, presented to the stockholders at the  annual meeting in Toronto on  November 30th, last year, showed deposits, interest and non-interest bearing, of 36,985,719.31.  This was an increase over the  previous year of $2,400,000. The  net profit for the year, after making due provision for all bad and  doubtful debts, and deducting  expenses and interest accrued on  deposits and rebate on current  discounts, amounted to $589,-  656.96. This, added to the bal-  at credit of the Profit and Loss  account for the previous year,  made a total profit of $658,528.-  45���a record parallelled, but seldom surpassed, by the management of any other banks in the  Dominion.  As an indication of the popularity of this bank, and of the  careful management which its  affairs have always received it is  interesting to turn to statements  of assets in 1877, twenty two  years after its incorporation, and  compare the figures, with those  of November 30th 1910. The  total assets of the bank in 1877  amounted to $6,419,938.01. At  the end of the bank's year 1910  the total assets amounted to  $50,314,397.47. An increase in  thirty three years of $43,894,-  459.36. yy  A GOOD THING IN STORE  All women of good taste���and  the few mere men who can boast  Quarantine    Imposed     on     all  Towns on Main Line,. From  Mission'to Lytton  A few weeks' ago at'Mission  City an isolated case of small pox  attracted, casual, attention.. from  local medical men. In a few  days it had become epidemic from  Mission to North Bend and over  one hundred ancVfifty cases were  reported.^ ,v__ . i;  Dr. F. T." Underbill, head of  the Vancouver health department  however, took cognisance of the  outbreak as soon as the first case  was reported and took- steps to  prevent, if possible, the entrance  of the dread scourge into the,  coast city. /      vf"*vA   i  The spread of the disease along  the main line of the C. P. R. I  was evidently due to people travelling between different points,  while possibly not inoculated  with the /germs, carrying * the  taint with them. ~ The provincial  health authoritiesspeedily recog-  nisedthis and placed all "stations  between Mission and Lytton Cun-  de'r a strict quarantine. Now no  one is allowed to ge|on*to a train  at any bf those points'.** i''  <Last Sunday* at^ North Bend  what^might be teamed the '.'full  brother"y qf��� small-pox, . diphtheria,potentially more deadly a  menace.than even.the small-pox  itself,, made its appearance and  one child was fatally<*i nfected/;.  Steps to?p^event;the advent'of  either scourge into Merritt should  be taken by every owner of, a  building here. All rubbish should  be carefully destroyed, either by  burial or fire. The same precau-'  tions should be taken in every  camp along the line of construction. /' ,,'H ft?

The event was in honor of Jno.  Adams, who' has left for North  ���Yakima,' Wash., where he will  spend the rest of the winter and  probably locate permanently.  " Everyone "was in high spirits,  and the mazy whirl and pleasant  social intercourse was indulged  in until the first cock's crow.  Jack Adams has been- in the  Nicola for about five years, and  has*made a host of friends who  Avill=8ineerely=regret=his=depari^  ure and who will hope that he  will decide to cast his lot with the  valley- of. sunshine again. 'Mrs.  Adams is at present stayjng with  her sister, Mrs.; Chas.' Collett,  and will leave later to join her  husband across the line.  TO HOLD DANCE  The ladies of St. Michael's  Guild have decided to hold a  dance in fMenzies' hall on Tuesday, February 21st. The funds  derived from the sale of tickets  ���will be devoted to the building-  fund. For those who do not  dance card games will be provided. It has also been decided to  award small favors to those who  may be adjudged the most expert dancers on the floor of the'  Another meeting, to complete  arrangements, will be held next  Wednesday afternoon.  ALL IS NOW READY*  The fine new fixtures for Bennett & Reid's general dry goods  side of their commodious store  are now all in place and the goods  which arrived this week-are rapidly filling up the shelves. Since  opening up their gents' furnishings side three weeks ago the  firm's business has greatly exceeded their expectations. The  stock of ladies' wear and general  dry goods is now replete with  down-to-the-minute goods���there  j&_^gy3p��^a=nickleis^\sa*cthj,of--5>ld  summer.

Last Sunday the last spike was  driven in the ten mile stretch of  steel, from Merritt up the Cold-  water, on the line of the Kettle  Valley Railway.  , No more rails will be laid on  he grade this winter, on account  of   weather   conditions.    Ifrlis,  William Mclntyre, proprietor  of the Coldwater hotel is now in  California, where he went to  join his wife last week.

Again it may be thought advisable to delay this part of the construction work until the beginning of May, when it will be possible to run right through i with  the work for another twenty,  miles. From news received from  authoritative sources, however  the News is in a position to state  that it is probable that the rail-  laying will re-commence about  the end of next month.  The indecision of the engineers  as to the exact date is on account  of the uncertainty as to whether  or riot weather conditions along  the main line of the C. P. R. will  make regular shipments of steel  and ties possible. The difficulty  in securing ties for the last mile  and a half.of the.ten mile section  now completed, on account of  the freight blockade caused by  the impassable condition of a  large part of the main line, has  made the,contractors somewhat  chary of trying to rush things.  If they should commence the  steel-laying before they were assured that rails and ties could be  delivered on schedule, in the  quantities required, there is a  strong probability that delays  would occur.  Speculation is rife, as to whether the railway company will run  the trains for private business  over the completed sections this  P. D. O'Connor arrived in town  last Friday, from the coast. He  will superintend the installation  of the plumbing in the new residence in course of construction  for the manager of the bank of  Montreal.  >/;  ������;..  :p/���.   ^MrHWoodsr^stenographer���to  the paymaster of Macdonnell  Gzowski & Co., left by this morning's train to Vancouver, en  route to Seatle, where he will  endeavor to separate himself  from the accumulated savings of  the last six months.

This -trip is one  of the quadrennial jaunts he  makes to the east,\ as surely as  summer follows spring. He will  probably return to Merritt in  about three months time and  take up his work'with the contractors for the extension of the  K. V. Railway. His home is  near Toronto, '��� yyy^d~y ���'��� >:.v:  Vancouver     Island     Warehouse   Co.,   Reported  to  Have Secured Trackage.  Still another company is showing evidence of its faith  in  this  town.    This  time it is a large  Vancouver    Island ' -warehouse  firm, which proposes to establish  a   warehouse   here   to   cover a  block  which' the firm have secured, 100 by 240 feet.    This-is  located beside the C.P:R. tracks,  though in what part exactly, the  representative of the firm, who  was in Merritt during the week,  refused to state.     It is proposed  to run a spur from the main line  into the land of the company. It  is further stated  that ,this will  be done within^ the next thirty  days.       '      ���- -.J  - As, will  be gathered from the  foregoing,   an  element of mys'-  rery surrounds   the   advent' of  this new company; and the mystery was made "the "more difficult  of solution by the coriipany's representative,' who gathered information from The News which  makes it appear certain that Kis  principals   mean   business.      It  might possibly.be that the pro-  le'ct is related ..to the establish--'  ment of a distributing centre for  the business, of-the district, fot  firms' '.doing business." in certain  materials with-the mining and .  railway.companies. J The News  BopeX t'o?be'in"a position to make ��y  a more"definite announcement in  the matter during the next fortnight.  The advent of the bank of Toronto,1 in competition with the  long-established Bank ��� of Morif-.  real appears to have awakened  the interest of another strong  bank. Mr. Harold Greig is authority for the statement that he is  in receipt of several communications' from a bank in Vancouver,  in which they asked for information as to the population and  resources of this district. And  More significant still, they requested figures on realty. For  some time past there have been  rumonrs afloat to fhe~effect that  the Royal Bank of Canada was  contemplating entry 'into this  field, but so far there would appear to be no ground for the assertions which have been made in  this respect.  W. Rurark, the local telegraph  operator, has decided that if "the  powers that be" in .Vancouver  heed his petition he will remain  in Merritt.  ,  ������ -O : 7^-  The Merritt Mercantile Company has received notice that it  is appointed local agent for Fit-  Rite clothing, one v< of the best  known makes of such goods in  the Dominion.  .

Following will be found some  comments of the papers on the  possible results of the proposed  reciprocity treaty between the  Dominion and the nation to the  south :  London, Feb. 1.���The Morning  Leader parliamentary correspondent says that "the artificial,  tourniquet drawn across America  is now removed and the lifeblood  is able to flow freely between the  north and the south. It is a great  triumph for Canadian statesmanship.  Th3 Daily Mail argues that  Canada had no chance but to accept the United States' offer for  trade and reciprocity. The agricultural development of the United States has reached the limit,  whereas Canada is searching the  world for men with capital to  develop new prairies, forests and  mines. The United States real -  ized that the critical hour had  struck when there must be a wide  open door into Canada, which the  United States banged to nearly a  half century ago. It-was impossible for Canadian negotiators to  reject an offer so generous. It  is not expected that the signing  of the agreement is certain, however. The Mail also publishes an  article lamenting that Britain had  "not acted on Chamberlain's advice and closed with the colonies  before it had become too late.  The' Express, in a column  sketch of Hon. Mr. Fielding,  says that even his bitterest polit-  icalopponents are among the first  to vouch for his absolute integrity. His career has distinctly  raised the whole of Canodian public life, while his association with  Sir Wilfrid Laurier inevitably  point him out as the next Liberal  'premier. -  Agent-General of British Columbia: "While the proposed  treaty is very prejudicial to British Columbia, she will be able to  stand it. She can make local  laws in respect to timber exportation. The fruit trade will suffer." -     ..  Norton Griffiths: "If the agreements are ratified the Americans  will have wiped our eye in great  style.".. , '    ���  Wallace Carter, secretary of  Free Trade Union: "It is too  early to prophesy, but it looks like  the final blow for the whole tariff movement in Great Britain. "  Joseph Bank, head of the famous milling concern: 'The gravity of the situation cannot be  overestimatee, for the commercial rapprochement which has begun is likely to be extended until the two countries become ih-  dissolubly allied by common trade  interests."      > .;  The? Yorkshire Post thinks  Great Britain will be able to maintain its position in the'Canadian |  market if sure of equal treatment  with the United States. That  the British preference is dead is  a despairing cry for which the  Yorkshire Post sees no justification.  Winnipeg, Feb. 1. ��� Premier  Roblin of Manitoba, who returned yesterday from Cuba, denounced the proposed trade agreement  between the United States and  Canada as being "a death blow to  Canada's industry. He also asserted* it "would vitally affect  our relations with the mother  country."   '   . "  Toronto, Feb. 1. ��� "We might as  well dump our elevators   in   the'  lake if this reciprocitya greement  goes into force," said J. J. Car-  rick, M. L. A. for Port Authur,  this morning. He declared he  spoke on behalf of the sister town  of Fort William more particularly.  "We have spent $15,000,000 in  elevators there, and it will be a  straight loss," said he. "With  free wheat, our grain will go to  the United States millers and  the vast quantities of wheat now  stored in the elevators at the  head of the lakes and later to be  shipped for export will go via  Duluth and Buffalo in American  boats. Mr. Carrick stated that  the Port Authur council would  take the matter up and protest  agaiinst the proposed reciprocity  arrangement.  New York, Feb. 1.���The executive committee of the New  York Mercantile Exchange has  voted its endorsement of the  Canadian reciprocity agreement.  A statement accompanying ithe  announcement of the executive  committee's action is as follows:  ."The reciprocity agreement  will tend to minimize fluctuations  in the produce max-ket, particularly in butter and eggs. Its adoption will be followed by some  reduction in prices on this side of  the border and probably by a  slight increase in Canada. The  new scale of prices will be  enough "for the farmer and offer  a most needed relief to the consumer.  "It will be found that practically all the commission merchants  are in favor of reciprocity with  Canada. The duty on Canadian  farm products, especially butter  and eggs, which might be brought  into this country, is practically  prohibitive, as it was the intention of the framers of the law  that it should be.  "Only at rare intervals, when  the price of American butter has  gone up, has it been possible to  bring Canadian butter into the  United States.     There is a de  mand here which the American  farmer cannot meet;  ' 'The United States has 92,000,-  000 inhabitants and Canada about  9,000,000. There is no reason  why the productive country to  the north could not furnish supplies for feeding the people of the  United States out of its surplus.  The addition of Canada to our  food supply territory should not  hurt the. farmers.   .  Land Act  Nicola Land District.    District of  Kamloops Division of Yale.

PUBLICITY  More plainly every day the  need for adequate and systematic publicity work, on the part  of the local Board of Trade, is  manifest. Every newcomer immediately inquires for something  which will give him, in condensed  and immediately available form,  ��� an accurate revision of the resources and potentialities of the  Nicola Valley in general and that  part which is tribute to Merritt  in particular. Of course those  whom he asks for the information endeavor to enlighten the  stranger to the best of their ability. This information, thus imparted, is on the whole inaccnr-  ate; for each gives the most of  his knowledge from hearsay,  and it is impossible for the man  with the best of good intent to  be aught but hazy when his own  information is but the fruit of  conversations with others. One  man may know all about growing grain in the valley, and ; another about raising cattle, others  about intense and others about  general farming; but taken, in a  cross-examination by a stranger  who wishes to obtain an accurate  knowledge of all branches of agriculture and horticulture each  would fail in accuracy in a report  on the whole. <���  There is probably no other class  of visitor to Merritt who is more  keenly interested in the prospects  of the valley than the commercial traveller. Yet even these  men, keen inquisitors though  they are, frequently state that  they cannot accurately discuss  the potentialities of the valley  with those others whom they  meet outside the valley, who are  also interested.  Coal mining is frequently mentioned as the assurance of future  prosperity. Granted that it is.  But there are thousands of acres  of most excellent arable lands  tributary to Merritt and it is necessary to settle these up. It is  our boast that the Nicola Valley  is the potentiaKsuperior___of^the  Okanagan. But an outcrop of  anthracite is not a coal mine.  Neither is an acre of bunchgrass  a patch of potatoes. But with  the expenditure of labour the  outcrop may become the mouth  of a pit and tne acre where the  bunchgrass grew will grow eight  tons of potatoes. The Okanagan  valley is not yet one third, we  might even say one . tenth, as  closely settled as it might be.  But there is even now a steady  influx of setttlers into that valley,  and the proportions of the immigration are steadily increasing.  Vernon, if the present annual increment in population continues,  will soon attain the proportions  of a small city.  All this up-building has been  the direct result of a definite,  systematic conduct of a publicity  campaign throughout the length  and breadth of the Dominion  and the old country. There has  been no quibbling by the boards  of trade over the fact that there  might possibly be no direct cash  returns on the money invested in  advertising literaturp. The men  of the Okanagan recognised that  their returns would be indirectly  i eceived; and they also had sufficient perspicacity to realize that  . if a slump was to come without  a previous effort on their part to  minimise the effects of such  a'  possibility it would be the heavier in that there were fewer  shoulders to bear the burden.  We have before us as we write  the circular recently issued by  the Southern B. C. Lands &  Mines.' We have no doubt that  the company would be pleased  to give a copy of this circular to  those who may be interested in  a publicity campaign. This circular is a fairly complete compendium of the salient features,  of what might prove attractive  to investors. It will furnish the  board of trade, if the members  are not entirely apathetic as to  their own interests, with a basis  on which to act.  Will the board "get busy?"  SUNSET'S PRIVATE MORGUE  Few people in Vancouver realise the extent of the private morgue maintained on the premises  of the Saturday Sunset.    There  lie the skeletons   of   enterprises  which died of cold feet, contracted when the editorial quill exposed their "insides" to the glare  of publicity.    Recently an inquisitive genious penetrated the sanctum of the surgeon  and  noted  with interest three urns.     One  was sealed and placed in the niche  prepared for it.    Upon it  was  placed a silver shield, in  which  was   inscribed   the   following:  "Nicholas Clarke,  His Scheme.  R.   I.   P."    Another was large  and brightly polished and as yet  unsealed, i: A    card    carefully  placed above it ��� succintly  said:  "The Commission Ring.''    The  third lay in the  corner  of the  room, badly battered, as though  the editor   had  played  football  with it.    Upon it were still legible the .words���  "Prepared for  the ashes of one Hamilton, who,  when last heard from, was headed for Mexico and going strong."  The keeper of the morgue grinned horribly as the genious turned his fascinated gaze upon ten  other, urns.   The genius watched  him stride across the room and  pick up the" ashes of a "frisker-  fourlusher-gambler-and-bootleg-  ger- (and vice-versa)", over which  he gloated.   The inquisitive one  slipped out, closing the door quietly behind him. .He thought of  Majah Megraw,  and was sorry  for the Majah.   t  of Merritt will be asked at the  next meeting of the auxiliary to  to prepare for a systematic canvass of the district, to extend the  work how being undertaken by  the men's committee. The ladies  of Middlesboro will do likewise,  and also the ladies pf Collett-  ville. :  The News welcomes this advent  of our ladies into a field for which  women are so peculiarly well  adapted.  A CONVERT  We do not believe that anyone  was at all surprised to hear that  Mr. Jardine, who occupied the  difficult position of opponent to a  government of whose actions he  personally approved, has now  thrown up the sponge and announced his intention of supporting McBride   henceforward.  Throughout the province, as a  matter���Of-jcourse. the__Liberal  press  will  "turncoat.  no doubt dub him  Mr. Jardine has  the consolation of knowing that  Gladstone commenced hi? political career as a Conservative and  ended it a Liberal; Disraeli began  a Radical and ended a peer;  Chamberlain, a roaring lion in  his youth is mellowed now and  John Burns of Battersea is a gentleman.  The wise man changes his mind  sometimes, the fool never.  HOSPITAL AUXILIARY  At a meeting on Tuesday afternoon, a report of which appears  in another column, the formalities of organizing a ladies'auxiliary for the general hospital,  which it is proposed to erect here  this year, were gone through.  The members will settle down to  plans of, campaign, etc., at their  next meeting.  Ladies' auxiliaries are being  more and more appreciated  throughout the country as extremely efficient aids to the management of public hospitals. Generally they undertake the not always pleasant, but in many instances decidedly necessary, task  of collecting monies on certain  fixed days, for the purpose of  providing the furnishings to newly established institutions.  We understand that the ladies J  EDITORIAL NOTES  Last week, reading the columns of our contemporary, we  were pained to observe that our  diagnosis of the condition of the  Herald, in re election matters, as  hysteria, has' sent that modest  organ of private opinion into delirium, during which it appears  to have mixed both the medicine  we recommended and its metaphors.  "Apollo and Plato in their  palmiest days would have paled  in the presence of such a man,  for surely has philosopyy found  a new apostle." Herald's reply  to us.  Apollo a philosopher! Shades  ef the'gods!  "A little knowledge is a dangerous  thing;  Drink   deep,   or touch not of the  Piaerianspring.''  A problem in chemistry: Magnify "idle nothings and vacuous  yaporings" into' 'noxious gases.''  For solution apply to the editor  of the Merritt Herald.  t��  ngiisj  Now that Apollo has been  "Heralded" as a philosopher, we  may expect soon to be informed  that Socrates was the god of  beauty and Mark Twain the god  of cynicism. It is not hard > to  figure out, however, had he been  living in the age of mythology,  who would have been the god, of  meaningless adjectives and mixr  ed metaphors.  It is expected that as a result  of the Chinese investigation commission, that popular air, "Has  Anybody Here Seen Kelly?" will  survive for an unusually long  time in Vancouver.  The editor of the Herald says  that "until the News outgrows  the swaddling clothes of infantile musings and proves a fallacy  ..���".-;. " his, paper will, continue (?) to act as the public's  mentor in matters political���even  though the public, do not ask it.  We pondered over the above for  some time and then asked adry^  goods salesman what the "swaddling clothes of infantile musings" might be. Hedidn'tknow;  neither did.we���nor have we since  been able to find out. So we gave  it up. The task of "proving a  fallacy" we leave to the logicians  of the community. It will occupy  their minds.for the.remainder of  the winter. We are willing to  bet that if any of them attempt  the job they will become candidates for a certain red brick  building in the immediate vicinity  of New Westminster.  -      ������o  Tom Seaton, of the Diamond  Vale Supply Co.

Vivid Description of Scene at the Death of Aliens, Who  Killed Police in London.  $2.00 Per Year.  The following vivid pen picture of the scene in the district  in which the London police and  a squad of government troops  were waging a war to the death  with Russian anarchists in the  heart of London, during the first  week in the new year, is taken  from a weekly publication in that  city. From it a glimpse of the  real drama may be gleaned by  the reader.  "The daily newspaper have  supplied full details of the affair.  They have ably told, with a wealth of incident, all about the foreign desperadoes in concealment  the attempt to bring them to justice for the Houndsditch horrors,  the wild fusilade of bullets, the  summoning of a military firing-  party, the arrival of firemen, the  burning of the house in which  the scoundrels were concealed,  the streets of London ringing  with shots, the finding of charred  corpses in the ruins, the wounding of policemen, soldiers, firemen, and civilians, the roads  round the besieged house swarming with hundreds of -policemen,  and the arrival ot the machine-  gun, which was not used because  the devastating flames had obviated the necessity.  CRIME DENS OF EAST. LONDON.  But little harm can be done by  adding my own word-picture of  that memorable scene; because I,  it will be remembered, was first  instrumental in drawing public  attention to the terrible menace  to society of the crime dens of  aliens in the East End.  It seemed incredible. Men clad  in immaculate tall hats and morning-coats, shopkeepers, servant  girls, labourers, dray men, typewriters, clerks��� all: sorts and  conditions rushed to the scene of  this amazing occurrence.  ' Lying in a veritable rabbit-  warren, the beseiged house was  gaurded on every side by policemen. But luck and' diplomacy  enabled me to push through until  I was able to mount to the roof  of a public-house, and command  a view of the tragic happenings  below.  Dodging phantom-like hither  and thither over the tops of adjacent houses were the figures  of armed policemen, waiting,  watching, craving for the chance  to get a shot at the daring mis-  creants=who=were=sending=the  greatest city in the world wild  with excitement.  Every now and then the crash  of firearms would reverberate  through the air, Bullets, fired  by the besieged foreigners, came  hurtling from the windows of the  block of flats in possession of the  alien garrison. Now and then  the noise would be deafening;  now and then a puff of smoke  would be followed by the simple  ping of a leaden messenger.  Then a great cheer went up as  the soldiers arrived. Lying flat  on their stomachs in the deserted  street���the inhabitants had been  ordered to safety by the police���  they waited, ever and anon sending forth a volley of shots, which  left great, gaping holes in the  windows of the besieged house.  And then the fire would be returned from the desperadoes  within.  AN EMBLEM OF PEACE.  Firemen arrived���as one of  them put it to me���" to drown  the rats out," but the fusillade  of bullets lendered their work  ineffective.  Then came the Home Secretary. I had dismounted from the  roof in ox'der to make more minute investigations, and his motorcar pulled up near where I was  standing. Hardly had he alighted, when one of the Scots Guards'  picked marksmen was wounded,  and Mr. Churchill's car whirled  him away to the hospital. His  face was dead white, but calmly  the Home Secretary moved about  utterly impervious to his own  danger.  Crossing to the other side of the  road, I stood for a moment and  witnessed the remarkable sight  of a funeral and a wedding party  passing each other. And as they  passed another' volley of shots  rang out. Slowly the black-  plumed horses, drawing a body  to its last resting-place, picked  their way through the maze of  omnibuses, taxi-cabs, ���' ' trams,  drays, motor-cars, carriages and  barrows. The drivers of the  wedding-coaches, wearing their  white favors, urged their cream  steeds as rapidly as possible from  the scene ; the Home Secretary  departed ; the soldiers clattered  up in charge of a machine gun ;  and then into the sky ascended  dense clouds*of smoke. We knew  that the beleagured house was  on fire, and that it was an im  possibility for any one of the oc  cupants to escape their fate.  The sequel is known; but one  other curious point remains;     **  On the station platform, only  a few yards distant from the  scene of the battle I have attempted to describe, on my return journey, there sat, placidly,  the venerable figure of a monk.  Calmly, ignoring the surging  mob around him, he read on.  And from his girdle hung a  shimmering cross of silver ��� a  strange emblem of peace which  seemed out of place in the surroundings I have pictured.  r  Just Opened IJp  A Well  Dressed Man  INCREASES HIS CHANCES  He has a  Better Show  To Get Along in the World.

Is Justified
Evil Spirits   Refuse  to   Be   Pro-*
, 'pitiated and Destroy Aboder''".
• :>::- of Chinese
The Chinese New Year, insofar
as the local colony of celestials is
concerned, commenced under the
most inauspicious circumstances.
The crackers set off as a propitiation to the evil spirits, to prevail upon them to look with favor
on   the   commercial   and   social
enterprises of the local Chinese,
evidently aroused them to anger
and they rose in their wrath last
Monday night and destroyed the
.   shelter and clothes of their suppliants — to the accompaniment of
much excited chattering, sundry
squeals,   frantic   salvaging and
many   maledictions   from   the
aforementioned suppliants.
In other words, the recently
completed . abode of one Wing
Hing Lung, half a mile below
Merritt, in which a large number
of Chinese had assembled to usher
in the New. Year, in accordance
with the edict of the Son of
Heaven, as the Chinese emperor
Is self-styled, was fired and consumed by the very means by
which Wing and his guests hoped
to ensure good fortune for the
next twelve months.
A  string ■ of crackers,   which
were attached to the verandah
post outside the house, as far as
can be ascertained, were lit by
one Chinaman.    After he had applied the match he repaired upstairs again to where the others
were assembled.    The crackers
went off all  right enough,   but
they broke from their place on
the outside and bounced through
the doorway, those upstairs being
blissfully, unconscious   of what
' was.going on below them.  Clouds
of smoke and intense heat soon
warned them that something was
amiss.   A quick investigation revealed   that   what   was   amiss
would not fail to attain its object,
and "the house would shortly be
reduced to ashes.
There was no time to wail over
the contrary disposition of evil
spirits as a class, or individually,'
or even to ask "Whaffor ? " and
for the next few minutes the
local colony of Chinamen showed
that the languor of the far East
was but a cloak to controlled and
conserved energy.    In fact the
saturnine, sedate celestials showed the enthusiasm of a bunch of
children who have just tied a can
to a dog's posterior appendage
and are trying to catch the dog-
in other words they moved quickly.—Silks and other valuable ware
were indiscriminately, strewn
out on the snow-covered grounds
in a valiant effort to save as much
as possible from the flames.
".■7 When day dawned the ruin was
revealed in black nakedness.  The
heat had been  so intense that
coins melted, but amid the ruins
lay a watch, which in spite of all
ticked regularly. 7
What Wing's loss is it is difficult to estimate. It is not known
whether it is insured or not.
However, Chinamen are nothing
if not optimistic and Wing smiles
bravely over all. ' v
