"In Champagne our artillery haa been 
notably su<.ca8Hful. On the a.tli of 
November one of our batteries of 75

German artillery of 106 ralUimetres at 
a point west of Presles, while at the 
same time our heavy artillery silenced 
the Are of the enemy In the region of 
Itougo Alaison. 

"It is Interesting to record that tho 
Incix^aslng activity of our artillery 
along this part of the front has had 
the effect of reducing our daily losses 
among the Infantry from an average of 
100 to about twenty men a day.

"In the riglon of tho .Vlsue and in 
Champagne there has been no change. 
The German artillcrr, over which wo

tow days, yesterday evinced Increased 
activity, but was again mastered by 
our heavy artillery. In the ►nvirons of 
llhclms the heavy French pieces com- 
pelled tho Germans to evacuate sever-

"In all the .\rgonne region we have 
continued to make progress. Wo have 
occupied new trenches, repulsed with 
complete success six counter attacks and 
completed and consolidated the ground 
won from the enemy. 

"On the heights of the Meuse there 
have been artillery engagements in 
which we maintained a distinct advan-

LONDON, Dec. 10. — The German

statement of the Brltisli official bureau

added that tiie search for the Dresden 
was still proceeding. The text of the

PKTUOGRAD. Dec. 10.— .\ Russian 
mlUtai'y expert analyzes and Interprets 
the German attack on Warsaw as fol- 

".Vlthongh tlie Oorntan forces are more 
numerous than in their forineT advance, 
and they are idanning attacks from 
several directions simultaneously, their 
task ia greater from the vastnes.s of 
the Russian army which Is massed to 
moot them. 

"Goneral Francois, of the eighth Ger- 
man army corps, from .Osterode and 
Soldau, is proceeding from East Prus- 
sia southward through Mlawa,, Glecha- 
now and Przasnysz, on the right of the 
Vistula, in an attempt to push toward 
Ro.shon with the evident intention of 
giving the powerful fortress of Nowo 
Gcorglevsk a wide berth. The Germans 
thus hope to outflank the Russian right 
wing and strike Warsaw from the north- 

"General Mackenzen's German army 
from Thorn meanwhile continues an 
offensive on the left side of the Vis- 
tula through LowlcJ!, engaging the Rus- 
sian centre and aiming to hit Warsaw 
from the west. Another part of I'Told 
Marshfll von Hindenburg's army from 
Sieradz, recentl.v engaged at Lodz and 
Piotrkow, is making every effort to 
march through Sklerniewlce and threat- 
en Warsaw from the southwest. 
Attsmpted Ontflaaklaff 

"The Austrians from the west and 
.southwest of Cracow complete the Ger- 
man plan by beginning an offenelvo in 
a.n effort to outflank the Russian left,' 
which is besieging Cracow, while the 
other part of the Austrian army on the 
north, which l.s In contact with the ex- 
treme German right. Is trying to pro- 
ceed northeast with the object of tak- 
ing Kielce and Radom. These movc- 
meiUs take the form of a widespread fan 
with Warsaw as the handle. 

Kxcept on the north, from Glechanow, 
the movements are not new, the Austro- 
Germany army having tried them before 
and failed. 

"According to Mie Russian author- 
ities, the yielding of cities to the enemy 
does not constitute a factor, since the 
bombardment of big cities like Lodz, 
with the attendant destruction of life 
and property tends to demoralize tho 

"Tlius If It Is of strategic advantage 
to evacuate Warsaw, the capture of that 
city ought not to be considered Im-

KIN(;STON, Ont., 1.4ec. lO. — MaJ. the 
Very Rev. Dean Starr, who since last 
August has been chaplain of the 37th 
Brigade of the Irish Guards, and who 
has been at some of the base hospitals

some uneasiness regarding the result of 
the prolonged battle between tho Rus- 
sians and Germans, but the report.s 
fiom Franco ore considered here to bo 
tho mast favorable to the Allies. Th« 
dally communications from Paris show 
that the French have been making alow 
I)rogrcs» at many points for the past 

Idnea Pnataed Torward 

Tho report from French headquar- 
ters this evening adds little to tho 
general knowledge, as it saya the situ- 
ation is unchanged, which indicates, 
however, that tho positions taken have 
been maintained, Berlin, on the other 
hand, states that tho French attacks in 
tho Argonne have been repulsed. 

It Is apparent, however, that with the 
wlthdrawol of German troops to 
strength'^n the armies in the Bast, the 
Allies have been able to push their 
lines forward in many places. 

The Germans meanwhile continue 
their efforts to amaeb the Russian 
armies. While a largo part of their 
force is endeavoring to hold the Bus- 
slan centre, another army is advanolns 
from Kast Prus.sia to the cast of Mlawa. 
and Ik attacking the Russian right with 
a view to cutting communications and 
enloring Warsaw through the back door, 
lleax-y fighting also Is goins on to th' 
southwest of Lodx and to the south o' 
Cracow, while the Austrianji and Ger- 
mans are endeavoring to set around the 
Russian left and force these troopa to 
retreat from the fortress. The Ger- 
mans, in fact, are repeating, on a larger 
scale, their favorite tactics of outflank- 
ingr the positions of the opposing forces. 
In this they have always been able to 
gain Initial successes, because of their 
ability, with better means, to move thetp 
troops quickly. The Russfcns, however, 
heretofore have met them with over* 
whelming numbers. 

SsxMaa HiioosBB 

The defeat of the Austrians by the 
Serbians Is virtually admitted in the 
Austrian official report, which says 
that because they have met strong hoa« 
tile forces, some of th«» Austrian troops 
have been ordered to occupy mora fa- 
vorable positions. 

This sudden turn of events in favor 
of the Serbians Is somewhat of a rnya* 
tery, but It Is possible they have re* 
cpived reinforcements from Russia, op 
guns from some friendly oouatry^. or it 
may be that some of th* Austrian 
troops were withdrawn from Serbia 
after the occupation of Belgrade. What* 
ever tho causes, the Serbians have ln'< 
nicted a severe defeat on the Invaders. 
The latest official report; from Berlin 
saya that the German Emperor's health 
Ifl much improved. It Is bsllavsd that 
the bronchial attack to which he Is sub- 
ject at this time of the year was well 
under control before the fact of hla 
illness was made public, and ttuit hei 
will probably make a quTek recovery.

tors express reRre.t to the .stockholders 
that the report Is not so satisfactory aa 
these which they have been accuKtomod 
to receive In the past, and that in order 
to maintain the uBOttl dividend It will 
be necessary to supplement the profits 
by a transfer of $j30.00O from the re- 
serve. The directors recommend tills 
course with «qmio hesitation in view of 
the extremely unfavorable outlook 
caused by the war. 'bnt they desire to 
avoid throwing any additional hardship 
upon the .shareholders at this time, and 
for that reason approve of the transfer 
from the reserve. 

As a result of the wai;. commercial 
conditions in British Columbia could not 
very well be worse than they aro at

Casualties in Sea Encounters 
Far Surpass in Proportion 
Those of Land Battles — 
Southern Fights Discussed, 

LONDO.V, Dec. 10.— The Drltish naval 
victory In tho South Atlantic is being 
discussed almost to tho exclusion of 
all other phases of the war news. The 
last word regarding the naval engage- 
ment was that the iJrltish s(|iiadron, 
after sinking the German cruisers 
Scharnhorst, Gnelsenau and l>elpzlg. 
with the loss of nearly a,000 men. and 
the Nuernberg, Is searching roi the 

Naval observers, commentirie, on the 
action off the Falkland Islands, make 
note of the fact that in all naval en- 
gagements In the present war there is 
irreat disparity between the losses of 
the victors and the vanaulahcd. In 
Uie case of the British cruisers Mon- 
mouth and Good Hope, sent to tho 
bottom by the German squadron off tho 
Coast of (iJhlle, early In November, the 
Germans ts'ere practiv^ally unscathed, and 
tbo same is true of the British In their 
victorious engagement in the South At- 

In other words, defeat at sea means 
vi'iually annihilation and the loss of 
,ill crews with the exception of such 
men as tho victors may be able to save. 
Tbiii Is attributed to a great extent to 
the fact that naval engagements have 
been between ships of unequal arma- 

The German guns outranged the Brit- 
ish off tho const of Chile and the I'ales 
were reversed off the Fnlklands. 

Nevertheless. It is argued that even 
with ships of similar armament the 
disproportion of losses between the 
victor and the vanquished would be 
greater by far than anything possible in 
land warfare.

LONDON, Dec. 10.— A fervid appeal 
for further relief from Canada and the 
United States for the Belgian refugees 
was made In an Interview with Sir Gil- 
bert Parker, who has just returned from 
Holland, whore he was inaking a Merles 
of enquiries on behalf of tho American 
comnil.°slon for relief in Belgium. 

lleferrlng to the Canadian relief ship 
Trcmorvah, Sir Gilbert said, she re- 
dounded great credit. 

"Ghastly war and gaunt famine have 
set out to ravage Belgium, and its peo- 
ple, need $6,000,000 worth of food each 
month, at the lowest estimate. The 
vast bulk of this supply must come 
from Canada, Great Britain and the 
United States. I have appealed to the 
British Gov.ernmeiH-^ to organize . the 
transportation of refugees of Holland to 
Britain. Now I ask Canada whether, 
besides giving fobd so generously, she 
Cannot also take largo numbers Of re- 
fugees of the agriculturist class. This 
t>-pe would add to Canada's welfare and 
prosperity, as they., make patient, sober, 
honest citizens. Canada would l>e at 
the same time opening the <loor to 
home Industry and affording a home to 
,a dispossessed and martyred people."

TORONTO,. Dec 10. — Ontarla'a. tolal 
revenue for the fiscal year Just ended. 
Including money borrowed within tho 
year. Is $19,577,414. The total expendi- 
ture, capital and ordinary, will be close 
to $20,000,000. There will be a slight 
deficit, met from tho balance on hand 
at the beginning of the year. 

Exclusive of borrowings, there is a 
shortage of $1,119,464 in tho estltnatsd 
receipts presented to tho legislature by 
the Hon. I. B. Lucas in his budget speech 
last session. 

The actual ordinary revenue was a lit- 
tle over $11,000,000. The approximate 
ordinary expenditure will bo $11,039,000, 
and the capital expenditure nearly $8.-

tlve- Budget fw n**xt year. The Qovern- 
raent proposals were approved by a vote 
of 309 to 2U. 

Premier SalanJra, In his speech, said 
Important Governmental work bad been 
initiated to help the unemployed. Al- 
though the crops of 19H were sufflcient, 
he added, the condition of the people had 
been Injured by the slackening of com- 
merce due to the war, and also by the 
increased prices of foodstuffs. 

The Government, he tald, had helped 
the situation by securing wheat neces- 
sary for the army and navy, flic per- 
sonnel of which was more numerous 
than ever. Other measures were in 
course of execution, the Premier said, 
but he would not specify them, as he did 
not desire to give a clue to speculators 
of tho Government's Intentions.

Commeutlnff upon the reyorls from 
the Western theatre of ver >oroe days 
ago. we said that it is impopnible for 
anyone following the dispatches from 
day to day to be able to isay what ap- 
parently minor successes were really of 
importance. The ne\v« of yesterday 
bears this out. for we are now able 
to see that the various operations caii 
be co-ordinated by those who are ad- 
vised of what is going on in full detnil. 
The woTJs, of tjie. Allies is assutnins 
3efinlte foriti, and apparenlly means 
the driving of the Germans out o* 
Western Belgium. Thejr bavc occupied 
Zevecote, which is seven miles east of 
Xieiiport and about the earn? di«stance 
north of Dixmude. They ar« also at 
Qhiatelles, some seven or eiqht mllei< 
yet further east. We find it lmiK>s8ible 
to recoTicile these statements w^lth a 
Jlspatch of yesterday morning that 
said the Oennans had bombarded 
l-'urncH. that town being somf. seven 
miles west of the Yser. B:ither this 
statement must be an error or the op- 
ijosing lines must be greatly mixed in 
Western Belgium. With the Allies in 
possession of Dlxmude and Zovecote, 
which are only seven miles apart and 
iioth east of the TtBtie, &tid to be ad- 
v;jncing eastward from thoue points, it 
Us hard to «ee how the Germans can bo 
bombarding l^irnesi, which iB nine 
miles west of the Yser and ft line join- 
ing iJlxmude and Jievecotfs. , The 
ilispatch which spoke of the bombard- 
ment of Furnes also mentioned that 
Yjircs had lieen bombarded. 
towns are more than twenty miles 
f>.part. ^Yesterday we v,.rc told that 
the Allies wore bombardli' l:.,l. ... 
\Aliioli is fourteen miles ea > ■ : .\ i.i, 
joining Dixmudo and Ypres. Yet, not- 
withstanding the Itnposslbllity of 
reooneiitng these statements with the 
situation as presented by the irnJ*p, there 
emerges from all the apparent con- 
fusion the fact that the Germana are 
wlllidrawlng from Western Uelglnm, or 
l-'landers. a.s tlie dispatches tuually call 

'J'he allempt, which <<jnc:;p(iiiil.-iii.s 
thought the Oormanu were about to 
make, to pierce the" line of the Allies 
near Arras has not yet m:«terliili-/ed. 
HUght advances on the jiari oi tiie 
Allies arc reported from tliu viciniiy

'J"!io .''talo of Victoria In tin; An^- 
liiiliaii Connnonwcalth Is ondcnvoring 
to follow the lino of policy ailvocHied 
li.\ Mr. 1 lanky in connection with 118 
irrigation system. What Is being done 
in this way is shown by extracts from 
The Knglneering Record of Now York. 
The opinion of The Record is that pri- 
vate irrigation companies in the United 
States are all threatened with bank- 
ruptcy. The extracts referred to are 
too long for publication here, but, 
speaking generally, they seem to demon- 
strate that the ordinary private irri- 
gation system is almost fore-doomed to 
failure. It seems to have been proved 
i ) be not enough to bring the water to 
the land and th-^n expect inexperienced 
people to buy areas and become huccosh- 
fu! farmer.'-. The reasouH are many. 
r.i!ii. nece.wsaril.v, tUuy are different in 
i:;li'rent looalith .•<. but some of them 
iiiay I'e UK iiiioiuJ. One is the initial 
ilaruo for water rights, to which must 
I'.' a. hied tlo' annual water rental. .\n- 
i.ilor is the larix of capital to make 
ii. . • ssiry iiniirovemfnts, which leads to 
ais< uiiragemi-nt and later to the abnn- 
(lonnuMU f'f the land. The personal ele- 

II. cm of ne<.:etiKii J- enters into the case, 
and is v«ry often the Important 
tactor in it. 

In N'ictona, Australia, the Govern- 
in nt is endeavoring, and. It seems, with 
a great promise of conspicuous success, 
to meet the difficulties whieh private 
enterprj.ic has encountered in America. 
The plan is to reduce the cost of the 
land to the settler to the lowest pos- 
sible minimum; to assist him in prepar- 
ing his land for a crop, and to advance 
money, at a low rate of interest, to 
erect buildings. Tho land Is sold to the 
settler on a cash payment of 3 per 
cent, and the deferred payments are ex- 
tended over 33 years at 4',i per cent in- 
terest. Houses are built for settlers 
who can pay £& per cent o£ tho cost, and 
the remainder 1b repayable In 20 years 
v.'Uh interest at & per cent. Jf the 
settler wiU pay 20 per cent of the cost, 
the state will prepare up to 25 per cent 
of this land, tho expense to be repaid 
in 10 years. If the settler makes im- 
provements himself, the state will loan 
him fiQ per cent of thei:' value, and new 
loans will be granted as new Improve- 
ments are made. This system has been 
In/jporatlon for six years, and it is said 
t'mt .settlers, who have been thus es- 
tablished for three years, are all prac- 
tically self-supporting. In addition to 
giving financial assistance, tho state 
employs competent persons to act as 
advisers to settlers. 

In Australia.. as elsewhere, there is a 
percentajKe n( failures, for it is impos- 
sible, under the best advised system, to 
supply what is lacking in tho settler 
himself: nevertheless, it is claimed that 
pn th3 whole very excellent rc-sults aro 
being accomplished, although it is only 
fnlr to add that Th6 Hnglneerlng Record 
thinks Judgment must be yet sus- 

In placing the above statements be- 
fore Colonist readers we do so in order 
that they may be fully considered. If 
it Is true that "the day of the pioneer 
I'i over," It seems obvious that a now 
dfcparturc must be made in some dlree- 
tion if people are to he got upon the land. 
One thing liau (o ii.. kept in mind. U 
huf- b<en found in .AustrBlia timt a cer- 
tain proportion of settlers look upon 
wi-ai I hi' Covernment does as a sort of 
enciuwment and are unwilling to second 
U by ('fforts of their own. There is no 
v.&y of s'-'ltin;; rid ut" ilv ocrsoiial 
iMluailon. The only thing i.s not to for- 
get that it is an element In the, 
at;'! ailmlnisli I- aiw system of alil to

for their success is that they will evi-

In order that war nilght be robbed 
of some of its horrors, tha Powers 
represented at the International Con- 
vention of 1907, sometimes spoken of 
as The Hague Convention, adopted a 
set of rules. Fifty nations were rep- 
rc-fented. and among them Germany. 
The rules were unanimously adopted 
and signed by the several ronresouta- 
lives acting on behalf of th.dr respec- 
tive nations. Wo HUmmarUo some of 
the proviaions of this agreement: 

The Inhabitants of an invaded coun- 
try may take up arms In its defence, 
and, even If unorganized, shnll bo re- 
garded as belligerents, provided they 
carry arms openly. 

Prisoners of war are In thn power 
of the hostile Government, t'tt not ot 
the Individuals who lapture them. 

The personal property of prisoners 
shall remain theirs, excciit arms, 
horses and military papers, 

Belligerents have not unlimited 
choice of means of Injtfrlns tho

our amiable friends in Seattle, Port-

ing that the people Of Victoria aro 
scared half out of their wits. There 
are some other people, living it; another 
direction from this city, wh^ also will 
have to devise some thing fresh to say

another story. 

A story comes from Wajshlngton, 
H. I . to th0 effect that a new air-

der London safe from aerUl attacks. 
The New York American, not perhaps

Also the car i« furnished with the

R. Drayton, piiivljjioaal Uiiuldator of the 
Doniliilon Tru.^t. ilJiUa that the direct 
euuMo of the lluuiUatlon, ao far aa htj 
lias b«en able to ascertain, may be 
Hijoitly stated aa follow-n: 

1. The fact that, in violation of its 
powers, the company received deposits 
and kept in liand little or no liquid as- 
Ki'ts with which to meet a possible 

;;. The fact that moneys, both trust 
money.-* and the company'.s own moneye, 
■were invested not as required by the 
provisions of Its charter, but in highly 
speculative assets and in shares or 
bonds of highly speculative companies, 
where more and more advances woru 
necessary to protect tlie company's 
security. ^ 

3, The fact that moneys entrusted for 
investment were not kept ucparate, nor 
in a separate bank account, although 
the company's charter required this to 
be done. At the date of liquidation the 
company had under its control trust 
money.s amounting to between 14.000,- 
000 and $5,000,000. Part of this was 
always uninvested and always "carried 
in the company's bank account, .mixed 
with Us own money, and ofteni If not 
always, dealt with as if it were Its 
own money. 

4, The fact of the inisapjjropriatlon 
of trtist and other sccuritlea) ■> TWa ap- 
pears to have been u vain tittempt to 
save the situation, and has been most 
noticeable during the few months prior 

to liquidation. ^ The inability of the 
company to hand over trust funds when 
demanded rendered the situation acute. 

5. To sum up th€ situation, the com- 
pany seema to hav« done most things 
that a tntat company should not do. 
and this company had no power to do, 
and few things that a trust company 
should do. 

Mr. Drayton estimates that the assets 
will realize |!)"0,715.07, against a book 
valuo of $5,752,232. and expects the 
liabilities to rank at $3,000,000.

Importance referred from the council. 

The freights committee of the board 
met yesterday and drafteil a very 
Htfong againKi the proposal of 
llie Canadian railway companies to 
make changes in clasHlflcation, which, 
If 1 ari'lfid out. will tend to neceswitate 
till- .slilpplng of many good.i In less than 
carload lots, thUH causing a consider- 
able Increase in the cost of commodities 
to the con.sunicr. 11 i.s the opinion of

Municipal Voters' List Requires 
but Few Minor Changes — 
Departmental Estimates Will 
Soon Be Considered, 

Colonel Tracey and Mr. W, G, 
Chase, Prominent Engineers, 
Approved by Court — Will 
Assist Trial Judge. 

As the result of argument before a 
judge of the Supreme Court at Van- 
couver yesterday morning the two as- 
sessors who will .assist tho trial judge 
at the hearing of the action of tlie 
VVeslliolme Lumber Company against 
the City of Victoria were appointed in 
tiie persons of Colonel Tracey, formerly 
city engineer of Vancouver and now in 
private practice "fas a consulting en- 
.gineer, and Mr. W. G. Chase, chief cn- 
j?lneor of the Greater Winnipeg water 
works sciieme now under way at the 
Prairie capital. These two gentlemen 
were .selected by the court from among 
a lenglliy of names <>f engineers 
submitted l)y both parties to the action. 
Wliether they will act lias yet to be 
ascertained, but if they accept the ap- 
pointments the work will be in the 
hands of men who stand very high in 
their profession in Canada. 

The application was made on behalf 
of the city by Mr. W. A. B. Ritchie, 
i K. C., of Vancouver, who has been re- 
! tnined by the city a.« counsel in the ac-

Ara Clarerly Trapped 

.lo Kcc, ami Sing, two glib-tongued 
' iiirnlal.s, appeared before the |)oIlce 
niaglstrntc yesterday to answer the 
charge of .shop-lifting. The former ad- 
mittod his guilt but the latter main- 
tained Ills innyc^noc to the lajst. He 
was a professional man, ho declared, 
following the line of music In the local co]nn1nnit^■. They had fallen 
too conipl<'tely Into a car^^fully laid 
tpnp, hownvor, to give hrlng a chanoe of 
piMHUadlng tlie court that he pos8es»ea 
the impeccable character he painted, 
TlU'y wore found guilty of entering the 
premises of M. bcnz, Yates Strict, and 
of carrying off a bolt of cloth. Three 
.x^ars in tho Provincial .jail was the 
penalty to both alike. 

Tho police believe that, in the cap- 
ture of Jo Kee and Sing, thoy have 
landed two men who have been preying 
on the stock of M. Lions for some time. 
Their mod«« operandi, apparently, waa 
thua: Choosing the noon hour because 
the ataff of attendants then waa re* 
duced, one would enter the atora and 
engage the clerk In looking at goods. 
While the lattar waa buay th« pur< 
■. haaer's companion would entar and 
stroll about. Eventually the flrat per> 
won would buy a pair of aooka, a few 
yards of f)ann«1ette, or some small ar- 
ticle. By the time the deal waa oom» 
ploted the second party would bara 
taken advantage of the opportunity to 
secrete a bolt of elotfa about hla cloth-

The revision of the municipal voters' 
list this year developed none of tho 
excitement that prevailed when the 
sessions of the Court of Revision were 
held last year. Yesterday's proceeditigs 
before the court, composed of Mayor 
Stewart and Aldermen Porter aud DII- 
worth. proved an exceptionally tame 
affair and there were few complaints. 
There were a numbei' of cases of house- 
holders whose names arc on the list 
but who have not yet paid their VI loart 
tax, and an adjournment of the session 
was taken until next Monday to give 
those householders an opportunity to 
attend and show cause why their names 
.should not be struck from oft tlie list. 
Some duplicate names appear. 

The court instructed the city treas- 
urer to submit a statement sotting forth 
those agreement holders whose names 
are on the list, hut who have not yet 
paid their taxes for tiie year. )' 

Karly consideration by the Council of 
the estimates of expenditure for next 
year will be possible aa practically all 
de'partmrnls have compiled their state- 
ments as recently requested by the 
(■■onncil. The figures have been based 
on a reduction of 25 per cent on the 
osilmates for the present year. Tlie 
chief statement still under process of 
compilation is that for the engineer's 
department, and this will be ready in a 
day or two. Next l^'riday t!ie estimates 
will be before the Council, when repre- 
sentatives of the recently organized 
Civic lietrenchment .\ssocIation will he 

City Treasurer Smltli will next Thurs- 
ilay offer for sale by auction three 
parcels of land acquired by the city 
under the expropriation proceedings in 
connection with the wi<iening of Pan- 
dora Avenue. When, sold the city will 
be In a position to close up the Assess- 
ment By-Law and levy against owners 
benefitted by the Improvement work. 

In a short time a by-law to regulate 
the erf-ctlon of huts, shacks and cabins 
will bo before the City Council. The 
Municipal .\ct gives the city power to 
regulate such premises where they can 
be shown to prpjudlcally ane<.'t the aa- 
.sossed valuation of adjoining properties, 
but the -city has so far not taken ad- 
vantage of this power. The proposed 
by-law will cover this defect, 

Tlie by-law amending existing regula- 
tions affecting the public market will 
soon be ready for consideration by tho 
Council. The new rnles as regards tho 
administration of the market and the 
fees to he chargetl for stall accommoda- 
tion will be fixed by the measure.

the oth«r hand, only registered 35, there 
being but an exceedingly light frost. 

Await Appolntmenta — It is expected 
that by next week the various organiza- 
tions intcreatcd in relief work will have 
.selected their ropresontatlvcs to serve 
on the central committee decided upon

ber,s of tho organization. As soon ua

"lCada-in-7ictorla" — An interesting 
departure in the •Made-ln- Victoria" 
movement is to bo found in tho manu- 
facture locally of wooden models of 
cannon, trolleys, exprcBs wag<«s, etc., 
as a contribution to the Oiristmaa 
trade. The aim of tho makers has been 
not only to make to sell, but to make to

Is maintained throughojit. If sufficient 
Hupport i« given the enterprise will un-

Old Country Mall— The British mall 
ha.s not come to hand wtlh its accus- 
tomed regularity recently. One was re- 
ceived early in the week, but it con- 
.sisted of only twenty-two bags of let- 
ters. It was overdue some day.s, and 
.-mother Is con.siderahly late. The local 
authorities are unable to offer any ex- 
planation, except that there may have 
been labor trouble. At any rate, they 
arc looking forward to receiving .another 
batch .shortly. 

Amount la Allowed — Judgment for

which had boon delivered to the com- 
pany's Kmpross of India, but which 
had disappeared Ih some mysterious 
m.^nner while In transit. Mr. 'W. C.

while Mr. Kdward C. Mayer acted for 
thr company. 

Chrlattnaa »oat— Xotwlthstanding the 
fact that a large (juantity of parcel

local men serving with the CJanadian 
contingent at .Salisbury Plain, there ha.s 
not been as lieavy a. Christmas ni.'fh 
thi.s year as heretofore. This does not 
mean, it Is explained, that It was small, 
n kept tho staff hustling to get it away 
on time, but all now is en route to 
Great Britain. The last hags left yes-

Siacuaaea Vroblema — ^ -There was a 
meeting of the ratepayers of Ward 3, 
South Saankh Municipality, on Tuesday 
night at Gordon Head, when an in- 
teresting address waa delivered by 
Councillor Williams, who announced 
his determination not to stand at tho 
forthcoming elections. He dealt with the 
difficulties which confronted the pres- 
ent administration when assuming of- 
llco In straightening out the district's 
affairs and putting its huainess on a 
sound and equitable basis. He thought 
that, in a general way, this had been 
accomplished. The Shelbourne Street 
extension and pavement scheme was 
deslt with in detail, the councillor ex- 
plaining the several alternative methods 
of meeting tl-.o com of the improvement. 
The whole cost might be levied on the 
street frontage, a portion might be 
raised In .such a way and tho munici- 
pality meet the rest, or one-flfth could 
bo levied against Slielbourno Street and 
four-fifths to a certain benefited area. 
I'crsonally, he favored the second plan, 
but the majority of the Council tliought 
the latter the most satisfactory. Ho 
pointed out some oj tbc diftlcnillcs In 
making; as.sessinents and otherwise ad- 
ministering a municipality of a mixed 
farming and residential population. Tho 
laws, he thoimlit, wouM have to lie 
amended to make the paths of those

IF you are using an imitation and you don't believe 
that it is costing you more than the genuine Lea & 
iPerrins, try this : 

Order a bottle of LEA & PERKINS. Eat one meal 
with the imitation — eat the next with Lea & Perrins. 

See how much you have been missing. The genuine 
goes further and gives more satisfaction. 

It does cost more to buy — but costs much less to use.

R. W. Hammond Found Guilty 
of Appropriating Chinaman's

bllity .\saurancc Companj-. who was con- 
victed by Judgre I.iampman yeaterday ot 
having failed to render an accountlnc of 
cortnitt fundn collected on behalf of thut 
concern. Immediately Hlo Honor made 
Ills jiidsnient Known Mr. Frank Hig- 
KJns, counsel for the accuaed, gave no- 
tice of hl.i Intention to apply for a stat- 
ed L-asi". He afterwards asserted that 
lie proposed taking the matter to the 
Court of .Appeal. 

The sppcifled charge Hain- 
iiioiid wflH that lie obtained |:J4 from 
\Vi-(nK .Suey, a Chinese resident of Cum- 
berlatid, for the company by which he 
was eniploj-ed and fraudulently con- 
verted it to his own use. The money, 
the informant stated, was obtained on 
March 14. Hammond denied the allc- 
Katlon In toto. He took the stand on 
hi.s own behalf and uald that the Bum 
had been turned in with other amounts. 
Everything he had collected had gone to 
the company. Ho had a personal claim the company and understood that 
the matter was being adjusted and It 
was while under the Impression that 
tills was being done that the action was 
launched against him. He explained his 
Inability to render an exact accounting 
of every sum which passed through his 
hands by the fact that he 'had' lowt his 
receipt book. _;<;' _ ' , 

Mr. W. H. Bullock-Webster, who acted 
for the Crown, called his witnesses In 

'i^mtTtT Til xiicrc nnv vtuhk uii^y 

who testified that he had given the ac- 
cused the $24. Then Mr. Harold R. 
Thomas, the company's secretary- treasu- 
rer, was sworn. He gave an outline of 
the HysCem under which Hammon'd and 
Mr. R. H. Duco worked la conducting 
the Vancouver Island agency. Xo |24 
amount had come to hand from AVong 
tSuey. _ To Mr, Hlffglns on crose-exanii- 
natlon It was admitted by Mr. Thomas 
that Hammond had wiitten last October 
aHking- for a statfinent of what he owed 
tin; company and asserting that he had 
lo.>(t a receipt book and was unable to 
trace all he had collected. No state- 
ment had been supplied. Mr. Duce tes- 
tified to the sums received from Ham- 
mond in March and April and what had 
been deposited to the company'.^ credit. 
He Maid thnt jranimond. on returning 
from up the I.slnnd said tluit he thotiglit 
he had collected from a Chinaman, but 
could not remember the name. Mr. D. 
S. Fyfe, of Vancouver, who took charge 
of the company here for a time, also 
had been asked by Hammond for a statc- 
mrnt but hart refused coiLsiderins: that 
it was the latter's place to furnish 
the company with such a document. 

An account of liis trip up the Island 
was given by Hammond in the coursa 
oC his examination. He had made a 
tour of camps and towns and had col- 
lested about |I77 durins the tour. In 
the course of hi.": travels he had lost 
lii.s receipt book and .so was unable to 
y.\\c. an exact account of thosi; from 
wliom the money was received. He had 
sent down two amounts of ITS each, 
andr*on his return, told Mr. Duce that 
he thought he had pot something from a

ever, In discovering the riohneos of the

There was a good attendance at tha 
Hoyat Victoria. Theatra . laat evening, 
and It goes without eaylng that those 
who witnee>Bed the performance were 
more than pleased with the aeries of 
pictures shown. Mary Flokford. one of 
the most popular moving picture stars, 
again illustrated the fact that she Is 
on* of the most versatile actresses now 
appearing befora the moving plctura 

The story as told by the ftlm, "The 
Eagle's Nest." Includes tragedy, com- 
edy and pathos that will be bound to 
suit ail tastes. It Is a tale of the Vir- 
ginia Mountains, and anybody who has 
read or Bti^n any plays knows what tha 
posalbilltlea are for turning out a life 
picture In that part of the world. In 
future there will only be three per- 
formaiiuts a ilay, the matlnoo oommejic- 
Ing at 3. and the two evening perform- 
ances at 7;,10 and 9. 

The new ei|uipmoni Installed for this 
popular form of amusement is now 
running In i)erfect order and the pic- 
tures can be^ seen from ,iny seat in the

Koyal Victoria Theatre has decided to 
nil In all the vacant time that has not 
been taken by the road or theatrical 
attractions. A last word should be said 
and that is the pictures are excellent 
and well worthy of a visit.

Case of Man Who Did Not 
Send East for Suit of 
Clothes Reveals Secret of 
Civic Self-help. 

SmlUi did something yesterJay which, 
if it tiecame the general practice 
amongst the people of Victoria, would 
apeedlly banish the hard times due to 
the war. Smith wanted a suit of 
clothes, and he had been Intending to 
order It from an IQastern department 
houae. But he didn't. .\nd the money 
etays in Victoria, thus helping the man 
who jwld the suit to pay the rent to 
the owner of the store, as well as keep 
his clerical staff going. Childishly 
simple? Of course, it is, but llie best 
of civic patriotism, noverthtl-.'ss. 

if everyone acted aimilarly, whether 
It be siloes, groceries, meat, clothing, 
furniture. Jewelry or wiiat not. what a 
difference would be noticeable In re- 
spect to commercinl ijondillong In Vic- 
toria: A little ^thoughtfulnesi^, a llttlo 
"horse sense," and In the twinkling of 
an eye the whole city could be lifted 
out of the slough of depression and 
business placed on ii solid and endur- 
ing basifi, People are doing it In other 
centres on the continent during the 
war. Shall Victorians show a lesser 
measure of patriotism to their own 

The movement tending to f..stabli8h a 
larger measure of civic self-help on 
the part of everyone In the commun- 
ity Is being endorsed with enthusiaem 
on all aides. Mayor Stewart, wpeaklng 
about the matter yesterday, faid: 

"If people during the last twenty 
years had shown a real desire to build 
up our local factories they would have 
made Victoria a manufacturing city by 
now, for 'Stimulation of manufacture 

then there would have been loss incon- 
venience to trade when financial condi- 
tions outside Victoria became unsettled. 
But there has In the past been too 
little local patriotism, and thn.'ic Indus- 
trice which have been created Kave 
grown amojis di.«cour«ging conditions. 
\ have already strongly supported the 
movement Initiated by the Victoria ami 
Island Development .\esoclatlon along 
somewhat similar line.«i to this one, 
which Included the Made-in-Vlctoria 
Exhibition, and ^^■hich all worked to aid 
local industrial development. 

"Valuable as nn asset, climate will 
not keep this city alive, and I ehall be 
only too pTc-uscd to see any movement 
alontf these lines receive the full sup- 
port of the public, as consumers, bn- 
cause it Is with the public, after all. 
that tlie .success of It lies. Tf the 
puldjc rei-ognUc.s ll.s duty — and it Ih a 
duty at this time — <t will check the 
outward flow of capital to the mail

War broke their hearts today. 

They used to call the morning 

Along the glided street. 
And then their rhymes were laughter, 

And all their notes were sweet. 

I heard them stumble down the air 

Like Moraphim betrayed; 
God must have heard their broken 

That made my aoul afraid. 
The Termonde bells are gone, are gone, 

And what is left to sayT 
It's forth we must, by bitter dawn, 

To try to find the way.

And llien their aonjso wore tender

At dawn or twilight hour. 
It's forth we must, away, away. 

And far from Termonde town. 
But this is all 1 know today— 

The chimes, the chimes are down. 

They used to ring at evening 
To help the people pray.

Xiady Xenderaoa 

Since tbe war began Hying machines 
have proved their, efficiency. There 
have not. It is true, been many groat 
air battle.^, those territtc combats imag- 
ination led many people to expect, nor 
have thii bombs been as destructive on 
cities as the Oermans hoped. 

The Zcppolhiss are by no means, as 
accurate in their aim as Ihelr inventor 
liopeM. Tile droppin^t of bombs on de- 
fenceless women and children has 
rottsed such a storm of protest through- 
out the civilized world that even the 
Germans have not dariid to disregard it. 

Uut tho aeroplanes of all the warring 
nations have proved their value as 
scouts. It Is said that the inovrMnents 
of armies were never so well known to 
their adversaries. Sevural times tlve 
British alrnieii have attacked the ar- 
senals of tho enemy, or lia\c tried f(» 
destroy the stores of ammunition on 
the batilelleld.5. The raids on Dussel- 
dorf and on the Krupp works were such 
deeds of valor as knights of old would 
have gloried In. That they were not 
more successful was not the fault of 
the aviators. .So fai- British airmen 
have not made an unfair use of their 
powers, and it Is to be hopyj that what- 
ever reverses our foriie.K may be called 
upon to boar nr however great the 
triumph of our armies their branch of 
our service will conio through the war 
with an unstained record. 

It Is not to be wondered at that In 
Great Britain the sympathlos of many 
women would go out to the daring men 
who b|;ave the elements In order to do 
their country's bidding. They share 
witli soldier!" I'le risks I'rom sliot and 
shell and witli sailors tlio rlangers from 
wind nni.l wave, but to most of us there 
Is still a feelmg of mystery about those 
whci venture to ride tho air that begets 
admiration and calls forth sympathy. 

It was natural that at the outbreak 
of war an aid committt'e tn the Royal 
Flying Corps should have been formed 
for the purpose of supplying tiic men 
who must spend mvicli of their time 
"abovi- the clouds" wllli those things 
as would conduce to their comfort. The 
ntitural Iftjuler of such an organization 
was I.,ady Henderson, the wife of Sir 
D. Henderson, head of t!ie Royal Flying 
Corps at the front. 

Most wom"n will feel that .some form 
of activity was necessary to the lady 
who must remain at homo while her 
husband ran tho many risks whicli his 
position cOmanded of him. There .can 
be little doubt thnt from the people of 
fJreat Hrltain ample conlrll)utlons would 
be rpcelved to furnish tho little army 
of airmen with all that they need In 
addition to the Government supplies. 

OiTlaf Vreaenta 

Some people nro asking themselves 
whether they shall give Christmas 
presents this year as usual. For some 
tliti questlor) needs no answer. All that 
fht-r can sivo Is love and goodwill, and, 
Btler all. the»e are far bettor than tho 
ccetllest gifts. A lady of means re- 
BClved a few days ago that instead of 
sending presents to friends at a dls- 
t,/;nce, ahe would write to them and use 
Ihc money to buy warm clothing for 
aume of her poor neighbors' children. 

There le a great deal of good flense 
and good feeling In the following ex- 
tract from an article on thla aubjeot in 
The Toronto Star. It la & good thing 
foi' aome of ua older people to sit down 
quietly ijeforo the excitement of Chriat- 
niaa time i« here and think the wholo 
matter over. The^fltar aays: 

"Even if «oma of us older people have 
rea»An to r<!pro«tih oareelvM, why 
»l?euld w* puniah the kiddlea. telling 
th'^m. with long, frowning facea, that 
Chrlattnaa enjoyment muat be dimin- 
ished thla year? Why ahould they mak«

the troubles of the clerks. 

"What difference has the war made? 
\\'ell. It may have diminished the ro- 
.sourcea of some peopIf'','TinU given them 
Ics,* mnney to spend. Consequvrilly, In 
ycur Christmas giving, you should Ivear 
these people In inlnd, and try to make 
their Chrtstmas as merry as possible. 

"To necessary economy there is, of 
course, no objection. But there ought 
not to bo a sort of penitential or mourn- 
ful cutting off of expenditure. That 
will only make trouble for those who 
mave trouble enough. 

"And nobody ought to encourage the 
impression that Christmas as an Insti- 
tution is knocked out by the war The 
grand idea which Christmas eymboltzes 
will stand forever, and will grow from 
yeiftr to year. We should all go about 
In' a spirit of optlznlBm and of chaery 
defiance of every influence that Is ad- 
verse to the Christmas spirit."

Mothers of means are beginning to 
renlUe that it is necessary to have for 
nursemaids women ,oc refinement and 
ahlllty. At no lime In their lives are 
chlWron so sustceptlble to good or to 
bad Influences as In tho years generally 
spoken of as babyhood. 

It takes ntany months of careful 
training to overcome the harm that a 
coarse, vulgar girl does, without in- 
tending It, to a bright baby between a 
year and eighteen months old. 

I..lttle girls and boys have l>een so 
frightened by the silly stories of fool- 
ish "girls that a lifetime has not suf- 
ficed to strengthen the injured imagin- 
ation. A deceitful woman will hurt 
oytry little child with whom she comes 
In eontact during her term of service, 
even If she Is never found out. 

If children are easily injtired by those 
un lilted to take charge of them, the 
Influence for good of wholesome na- 
tures and roflnod manners Is: Incalcul- 
able. Hontst, truthful, generotis girls 
i;:ay bo .safely trusted with the little 
ones, uvon though they aro ignorant. 
But mothers and teachers will have 
niuch trouble in curing the children as 
they grow older of the expressions Jhi-y 
h.'ive learinil anil the habits they have 

Ilut when to good pilnclplcs, a .sound 
i-iituri", anil a loving heart arc added 
reflucmenl nnd education, the child Is 
furtunatc Indeed. 

In Great Britain there Is u niovcmnnt 
atnong the wealthy and high-born 
mothers to select ladles as nurses for 
ll.elr children, and the move.meiU^wlll | 
spread till evory mother who oninJ^n 
tlif ear<* of her littlu children to others ' 
w'll si-lect only a girl of high charac- : 
ler nnd f»f good education and will pay j 
hev a salary commensurate (if that lie . 
j possible) with hor worth. | 

It miiy matter little what kind of a 
wonuin cooks your dinner, so long as 
she knows how to cook. It does not 
mattor greatly who keeps your house in 
order. But it is cssenllal that the baby 
Is totolorly and wisely cared for. Xo 
o\prHlght can be so strict as to prevent 
barm being done If It be otherwise. 

For girls with a natural love for 
children no employment can be more 
coiigonlal tluin that of caring for them 
di;rlng tho year.s In which they iire most 
attractive and nioxi Innocent. When we 
nil come to understand that these lltllo 
ones are entitled to the best service good 
women can crlve them, there will be no 
lack of trained iiuraemalds \>y whatever 
name they may bo called. 

Staying at Kome 

The Travelers' Aid Department of the 
V. W. (J. A. advises girls to stay away 
from the city while employment fs 
scarce, and one of the Montreal papers 
niterates the warning In lt« Woman'* 

l','\'cryonc knows that many girls leave 
their homes each year who need not Co 
.^o. This Is true of city aa well an 
country girls. It is little use arguing 
nealnst this. There Is a, natural desire 
(11 the part of girls as well as of boys 
fdr Indipendrnce. 

Parents who want to keep their girls 
nt home shoul.j see In It, not only that 
thpy have duties to perform, but that 
they hive motiev of ih<>lr own to apend 
A" they wish. Many a girl Is unhappy 
who Is compelled to iisk her father for 
th«! money she needs, who would cheer- 
fi'lly make her expenditures fit a very 
small Income. 

In Canada. especially, few. even 
among the rich have formed the 
hnbit of making allowances to the 
dflughti^rs who assist tju-lr mothers In 
household duties. Fathers who are 
liberal enough when naked for money 
to buy dress or ornaments, forget that 
their women folk would ho far hnppler 
If they were not obliged to make euoh 

Vet It Is a minfortunc when a girl 
who could be usefully employed at home 
enters an already overcrowded labor 
market. To k«ep tho girls at home 
they must be made economically Inde-

CALGARY, Dec. 10.— Anthony Me- 
Klnley, president of the Alberta La- 
crosse Association, and manager of 
the Chinooka, states that neither hVs 
league nor club were notified of the 
meeting In Ottawa last Saturday, and 
Ihat the Alberta representative. Bnl- 
Icntine, was not notlfle<l until after 
the meeting. He says Boyl had no 
right to represent Alberta, aticf that 
public opinion will brand th(» action 
taken tis an unfair frame-up when alt 
the fact.s are made public and It Is 
known that only one side was heard. 
A wire from Mr. Lally, one of the 
trustees, tonight, says that the Mann 
Cup will come to Calgary. 



Cedar XiU Seven Meet Second Defeat 

of Season in Commercial 


Carter & McKensie moved up Into 
first place with the Shoemen in the Com- 
mercial League hockey scries by de- 
feating the Cedar Hill t^'ani, 3 goals to 
0, at tho Arena on Wednesday evening. 

The game wa.s an Interesting one to 
watch, there being plenty of good 
hockey and not a few brilliant dlsplay.s. 
The Cedar Hill seven were clearly 
beaten; they could not break through 
the strong defeno! of the Carter & Mc- 
Konzle aggregation. At half time the 
score stood 1 to 0. Referee Morton

Letter From British- Columbia 
Football Asso-ciation States 
That Order for Play-Off 
Was Entirely Legal. 

The Kriiish Columbia I'Moilmll A.sso- 
clatloti hH.s ■written the following self- 
explanatory letter to The Colonist: 

"Inasiniich as the Thistle F, t;. havo 
taken exctJiHlon to tho ruling of the B. 
C. F. A., and have i)Ubli!<hed statements 
In the diffviont paperw whic'i are not 
In accordance wllli th« facts, we would 
ask you to give this communication tlie 
saine^jjronilnenco In your paper. 

"1st. The Victoria League affiliated 
to tho B. V. F. A. on September 12, and 
the minute hook of the association will 
prove this to be so, therefore, this as- 
HoclRtion had full power to render a de- 

"2nd. The Thistle secretary In hl.s 
communication states that It Is usual 
for the appealing dubs to be represented 
in order to state their aide of the case. 
We fail to understand why he has even 
hinted that this privilege was not 
granted, inasmuch as tho Thistle F. C 
were represtinted at the meeting by Mr. 
J. WaJker, and the Victoria Wests by 
Mr. Youson. Both these gentlemen 
il^tre given every opportunity to state 
their case. 

"When the B. i*. K. A. Is denUiiK with 
an appeal esse, it In not the council's 
.secretary's duty to correspond with the 
different clubx, but the league secre- 
tary, from whose league the appeal is 

"3rd. If your corre«nondent will otily 
take the trouble to read tho Knglish and 
Scottish law governing .such cases, he 
\\ill lliul that buch Provincial associa- 
tions are given full power to deal with 
such cases as they arise, taking all the 
facts in connection with same into con- 

"4tli. The Victoria League have full 
power to decide upon the ground on 
which the seven mintites shall be played. 

"It nilfclu be as well to remind Mr. 
AVehsfer that Mr. Walker not only 
rcrni'tsentcd the Thistle I'". C, but Is 
vice-president of the B. C. T. A., and Is 
one of the coiincH'K stronge.'Jt sup- 
liortcr.s, nnd, further, owing to such 
liositlon Mr. Walker' s exponses wore 
ordcrcil to bo paid by the Victoria local 

"In all cases wherein any member 
of the coimcll Is inleresteil in a club 
appealing a league's decision, such 
league must appoint another delegate 
to take his place at such meeting. The 
president of the B. C. F. A. notified 
Mr. D. Bain, president, Victoria League, 
that neither Mr. Youson nor Mr. Walker 
could act as Victoria delegates to the 
meeting, and was informed by wire that 
nt a Victoria League special meeting 
Messrs. Bain and Laity ha<l been «Iected 
delegates to this particular meeting. 

"The above facts will, wo think, prove 
that the Thistle F. C. received a fair 
hearing and th«it Justice was meted out 
to them.

Motion to Have Case Reopened 
With B. 0. £. A.— Arrange- 
ments for Christmas Day 
Benefit Match. 

At Wednesday night's meeting of the 
Football Association the Thistles once 
again failed in their action agsinst the 
B. C. F. A. ruling, which ordered a 
seven-minute play-off between them and 
the Wests. They asked tho association 
to reopen the case with the B- C. F. A., 
and put a motion to that effect, which 
President Bain ruled out of order. 
When the Scotsmen insisted upon the 
motion being put, the president vacated 
tho chair and Vice-President AValker 
put the motion. It was defeated four 
to Ave. 

The Scotsmen receivcil the verdict In 
a sportsmanlike manner, and a unani- 
mous vote of confidence in the president 
was passed. 

QoAl-keoper Rogers was granted his 
transfer from th<» Thistles to tho Civic 
Ser\:iC5 for cup-tie matches, but he will 
not be allowed to play iff tho second 
division of the league. Donald was 
transferred to the Empires. 

Arrangements were proceeded with for 
th'c Christmas Day match between Scot- 
land and The Rest In aid of the Patriotic 
Society, and in this connection a letter

That till' British stpanishiij Nlagjua, 
oi' the Caiiaiilnn-Ausiralian fleet, on her 
last outward voyage from Victoria, ran 
short of fuel oil, and that her Uinl(s 
were rapleiiiwhod In the vicinity of the 
i'ljian lalanda by a Britlali tankar, is 
the news emanating' from Honolulu, fol- 
icwlnir the arrtval at that port of the 
Bi'itlah tank steamer Ksturla. 

The officer* of the Eaturia were very 
ictlcenl regarding the disposal of part 
of the tanker's oil cargo, and it ia be- 
lieved In Honolulu that the tank ateam-

.Niagara in supplying that vaasel with 
fuel oil ul a time when it was badlr

its deMtUmtlon.

CharleH .Jones, in being lield at Honolulu 
awaiting iautructlomi from London. 
The tanker was supplied with a full 
«hiiiment of oil from the British Borneo 
ports some weeks ago. The Eaturia ar- 
rived at Honolulu with about 1.300 tons 
ot the oil fuel, representing a liaU- 
civrgo. It is reported that 't.'?>e tanker 
called at Fiji and remained at Suva for 
several days. It was at this time, it is 
believed, the Niagara, then .steaming for 
Australia, was given a supply of oil. 

Shipping men here consider the etorv 
remarkable, as the Niagara is fitted 
with tanks for the storage of sufficient 
fvel oil to Icat her the round voyage 
from this Coast to Australia and back.

Operating Between Victoria 
and Valparaiso, Ordered to 
Go on Bertli for Sydney, 

For the first time since she arrived 
on this Coast from the builder's yards 
In the United Kingdom, th-.' .Vmerlcan 
steamship CoUwa is to be plareci in tho 
offshore trade. It Is announced by 
W. rt. Grace & Company, owners and 
operators of the Colusa, that she Is to 
he placed on berth at Puge'r Sound 
port.«i and San T-'rancisco for a voyage 
to Sydne^•, .Vustralia. 

The Colusa will carry freight and 
passengers to the Antipodes. The 
Colusa is shortly due from Valparaiso 
and other South American ports, and, 
as .-^hc has a considerable cargo of 
nitrate aboard, it is just po-islble that 
yhe will come to Victoria to discliarge 
part cargo. Since she was put . in llic 
Coast trade between Brliisli Columbia 
and South America the Co'usa has 
made a, number of voyages between 
Victoria and Valparaiso via Seattle 
and San Francisco. She is a steamer 
of 3,703 tons net register, and is built 
on tile Isherwood system. 

■^Vhlle being a freight carrier of large 
capacity, the Colnsa is also fitted with 
accommodation amidships for about 
thirty cabin passengers. 

The Colusa is not a very fast vessel. 
and cannot compete in any r-ay with 
the past passenger liners plying be- 
tween this CoAflt and Australasian 

It is probable that the Colusa will 
taJto the route hitherto followed by 
the cJiartered freight steamers operated 
by W. R. Grace & Company. Upon 
arriving here from Valparaiso and 
Chilean ports, these vessels r\rt sent to 
Australia and complete the triangular 
run by crossing the i^outhern Pacific 
from Sydney to Valparaiso. 



Steamer Azov, Wrecked on 
West Coast, Sustained Seri- 
ous Damage to Three of Her 
Tanks and Stokeliold. 



Steamship Manila Maru, of 
10,000 Tons Register, Ready 
for This Service in August — 
Hawaii Maru to Follow, 

Announcement in made by Balfour, 
Guthrie & Co, that tiic British steamer 
Azov is due here from the west coast 
of South .America to undergo rt-pair-i 
at the Yarrows plant at lOsaulmalt. The 
A«ov is a tank steamer of 1,511! ton.s 
register and is under the command of 
Captain \Villiams, The Arov carried a 
cargo of crude petroleum and was re- 
ported from Lima previously to liavc 
stuck on a reef near Talara on Oc- 
tober 30. After floating the vessel was 
found to bn leaking badly. She pro- 
ceeded to Liobitos, where her cargo was 
dLscharged and a survey made. In the 
.survey it was found that the vessel has 
.sustained serious damage to three of 
her tanks and to her .stokehold. 

Following her arrival at Ksqulmalt 
the Azov will ho hauled out at Yarrows, 
wliich firm has secured the contract to 
carry out the necessary repairs. The 
Azov was built in 1892 and Is owned 
by the London & Pacific Petroleum Co., 
Ltd. She is a two-deck steamer, with 
machinery, aft, and fitted with tanks 
for the carrying of petroleum In biitk. 
It is said that the repairs will take 
several weeks to complete, after which 
the vessel will be dispatched soutii 
again to load petroleum. 

Imiiortant additions will be made to 
the Osaka Shosen Kalsha tranepaclfic 
fleet next .\ugust. when two new pae- 
eenger and freight steamships of 10.- 
000 tons regieter will be placed in the 
service between Hongkong and Victoria 
via Yokohama. 

The .Manila Maru and the Hawaii 
Mero, the vessels In question, are now 
rapidly completing in Japanese ship- 
■buildlng yards, and will be launched 
during the early months of the com- 
ing year. 

Xews to tills effect waa urought by 
the offlcere oC the Osaka .Shosen 
Kalsha liner Panama Maru, which ar- 
rived In port yesterday aftornoon from 
Hongkong and Yokohama. 

It is stated that the O. S K. Com- 
paay plans to put the Manila Maru in 
commission In August, when she will 
be dispatched from Yokohama to Vic- 
toria and other North Pacific ports. 
She will be followed in September bf 
the sister ship Hawaii Maru. The for. 
m«r is now nearing a state of comple- 
tion at the MItsu Biahi yardit at Xaga« 
•aki. while the latter Is aleo well ad- 
vanced at the Kawasaki yards at Kobe.

grrammo which saved France, and perhaps 
eventually the Drltlsh Empire. During 
lliat fortnight the waters of the Mouae 
were choked with the bodies of tho slain. 

The River Mcasn will over be ntcmorablc 
because It was along tho line of that river 
that tho great buttle — a battle that may 
later be reparoled an one of Ihu iluctslvo 
L«attl<-s of the World— took place, wbloh

destructions of pontoon bridges burdened

Who will ever forget the tragedy of iho

tho crux oX the Oocr War. Tho attempt 
to force a passage cost thousands of lives,

tho guns, and upon whom the Victoria

upon It. tho Tugela is written lor ftU time 
upon tho page of history. 

Kvcrybody. ■wjll recall tho part which 
"Father Tiber" played In Olden days In 
the defence ot Rome, and especially I..ord 
Mai'aulay's stirring ballad which tells how 
Horntlus kept tho bridge against an army, 
and them swam back, when the bridge w"as

What were tho Germans singing before 
the palace of their Emperor just before the 
war started? And what are they singing 
as they march to battle? The German war 
song "Tha Watch on tho Rhine." They 
have irOod reason to sing that soncr- **'"

western boundary, and no foe ever Crossed 
It unopposed. From the days ot Julius 
Caesar, who crossed it twlco with an 
army, to modern .times Jt has been making 
hlMtory. Xapcloon crossed It time* with- 
out number. ItlR most tragical crossing

OTT.\WA. Dec. 10.— It was an- 
t.ouncod today by Ormle Haycock, a 
prominent official of the Minto Skat- 
ing Club, of this city, that the Cana- 
dian amateur figure .«<kating champion- 
ships will not be held this year on ac- 
count of tho war. This atatcmont Is 
an authorized one. 

The reason for the postponement of 
the event this Winter is that .«io many 
of thoee prominently connontetl with 
figure and fancy slfatlng Iti Canada 
h.ive enlisted or arc proitilncntly con- 
nected with tho mllltla of tho country. 

As a result of this announcement. It 
Was learned also that Ottaw.i will re- 
tain the Connaught a^d Mlnto Chal- 
lenge Cups, and Montreal the Earl 
Grey Challenge Cup, They will hold 
the trophies until the season of 1915- 
"16, when they will be compfted for 


Oained Gsman Trenchss Almost Single- 

Handed — Having' AccompUahcd 

Task Was Shot 



The junior clerks of the I'rovlnclal 
Oovernment held a mcotlng laut night 
for tho purpose of organizing an ath- 
letic club. There v.-a» a f<^.lrly good 
attendance, and the followtn:; offlci-rs 
were elected: President, Mr. .V Ballan- 
tyne: vlcc-preeldent, ^Ir. 'VV'. i4. Baker; 
secretary-treasurer, Mr. 15. X). Bellby. 
This organization Will be known as the 
Provincial Government Junior Athletic 
Club, The club has formed i football 
team and Is looking for a te-x friendly 

The central figure In the bravest act 
that camo under Corporal Martln'.s no- 
tice was Captain Methvon, who was 
killed after having won single-handed 
a German trench. The story as related 
to a representative of the Liondou Times 
Is as follows; 

, "The Germans last Tuesday occupied 
a rldgc in tho vicinty of Lllle. and It 
was allotted to Captain Mcthven and 
his company to drive them from tholr 
position At the point of the bayonet 
The Gorman trenches wore on tho top of 
a steep llttlo hill, and up this Captain 
Mothvcn rushed, his mon scrambling 
after him. The gallant Captain did not 
halt until he reached the very brink 
of the enemy's trenches, and then, sil- 
houetted against the sky-line— a striking 
figure, with sword In one hand and re- 
volver In the other — he hali-iurncd to 
wave his men onward. It was thus 
that he fell, shot through the heart at 
What must havo been point-blank range. 
But the trenches were won, and tho 
small force of Germans sullenly sur- 
rendered. 'I had read about men single- 
handed taking a position like this,' was 
the Lance-Corporal's comment on tho 
Incident, of which ho was a near wit- 
ness; 'but until 1 saw Captain Meihven'a 
action I thought these things only hap- 
pened in story books." Captain Methven, 
it may be stated, was born In 1870, and 
entered tho Army at the time of the 
South African War, for which cam- 
paign he held two medals. Before that 
war ftnlshed, he had brpii promoted

An Example of 
Canada Life Usefulness 

By means of an annual deposit with the Company a man may 
now arrange that in the event of his death Kis wife, or other 
dependent, will at once enter on an income of, sav, ^50 per 
month. Tfiis sum is beyond the reach of poor investments and 
is absolutely assured to her for Hfe-or for a minimum of 240 
parents to the estate should the beneficiary die. pe amount 
of the guaranteed monthly payment may be adjusted to suit the 
means of the assured. 


This is the ideal provision in that it furnishes a guaranteed 
income for life, payable every month. As '* m*^Jf PJ^' 
vided through moderate annual payments to the Company, 
it is within 3»e reach of every business man.

and the drummer took .1 deep breath. 

"Xow let the Germane find me," he 

The Kxpresa man explained that 
some hundredfi of British 7;»llors and 
.soldiers wcro Interned in HolJaml, and 
explalnml tho disadvantages of In-

"Dh, Ixird," said the drummor, "then

Xoar the French have an opeh- 

alr slaughter house, adjacool to a 
grwit i>ark containing thO°dS.'>.nds of 
cattle for the provisioning of the 
troops at the front. I was watching 
the regimental butchers deftly cutting 
up their meat, and one of the cooks 
told me a story of how he had lost 
himself one night among the trenches. 
One evening, when the mon were 
hungry, he grilled some sixty pounds 
of fine beefsteak, and. at thu risk u: 
his life, went to carry It out to them 
In the trenches. He went galJy along 
with his load, and struck a trench 
which should have been tho one ho 
sought. "Hullo, Sth Company! Hero 
I1 something hot to eat!" To his hor- 
ror, a spiked helmet appeared, and, 
with his burden, he sprinted ff.r safety. 
He calculates he escaped a hundred 
bullets, with only a scratch on the 
arm, and his chief joy, after eventually 
convoying his invaluable foorl to his 
"5th Company," Was that the hungry 
Germans must have been sti mad to 
have mlfisod the treat. 


Terrify Oermans With Bayonet Charge*

A tribute to tho gallant work of the 
Sea forth Ulghlandors Is paid by Private 
Rooncy, of the Dublin Kuslllers, who. In 
an inl(>rvlr-w with ti rcproBcntatlvo of 
th« London Times, made the following 

"It keeps up your spirit to be fighting 
along with such follows," ho remarked. 
"They have struck terror Into the hearts 
of the Germans with their wild bayonet 
dashes. When there was any clo.«o 
flghtlnK:, and It came to usinR cuUl 
steel, tlie t;iernians ran from them liki- 
hurefi. Most of the '.Jocks' now

clmrglng the oneiny, they aro a flcrcc- 
looklng lot." I'rlvate Uooney said tho 
gallantly of their Scottish comrades 
pulled his regiment out of many a tight 
corner, and as a result there is now a 
close bond of comradeshl|) bocween the 
men of both regiments. Wheiitver ono 
Liitttallon is on the move, tho other must

st'lves," was his quick ie|dy. 

.Xcting on the KUgKestion tlif Crown 
I'lince of Germany proceeded to Ki\e 
his tirst interview in KngUsli. 

"I am a soldier and therefor.> cannot 
iliscus.s politics." .said the Crown Prince, 
•'but It seems to me that this whole 
i>u,slnes6, all of this action that you see 
around here, is senseless, unnecestiary 
and uncalled for. 

"But Germany wa.s left no choice in 
tho matter. From the lowest to the 
iiighest wo all know tliat Wt- are lighting' 
for our existence. 1 know that soldiers 
of other nations probably .say that and 
a groat many of them probably think 
the same thing. This does not alter the 
fact, however, that we are actually 
lighting for our national life. 

"Since we knew that the present war 
was to be forced on us. It became our 
highest duty to anticipate tho struggle 
liy every necessary and possible prepara- 
tion for defense of the Fatherland 
as-.ilnst the iron ring which our en- 
emies have for years been carefully and 
.'-toadll.v weldlny about us. 

Oerniaas Stand Tosrctber 

"Xo powt>r on t^arth will ever be able 
to convince our people that this war 
wa.s not engineered solely and wholly 
with a view to crushing- the German 
people, their Government, tlieir institu- 
tions and all that they hold dear. As 
a result you will Gnd tho German peo- 
ple arc one grand unit imbued with a 
mashlflccnt spirit of self sacrifice." 

The scene of our conversation was 
the drawing-room of a smalt French 
villa, located a few milos directly back 
of the German fighting line, and it was 
used by the Crown Prince as a head- 
•luarters. for himself and staff. 

The prince wore on his uniform the 
Inslgna of his rank as lieu tenant-gen- 
eral and his lecently acquired black and 
white ribbon of the Order of the Iron 
Cross. He carried no sword, but toyed 
With a short swagger .stick similar to 
those carried by English cavalry. 

(Jur conversation had been In prog- 
ress bnt a short time when It became 
clear to me that the Crown Prince, like 
!•!• per eent of the Germans I harl met 
on the firing line and off it, holds Brit- 
ain responBlhle for the present war. 

Karly In the conversation the Crown 
Prince .issumerl the role of the infer-' 
viewer, and made evident his deep In- 
terest In the sentiment of the X.'nItod 
Stales and hi.s lack of understanding of 
tji'. general attitude of the Tnlted States 
towards Germany's position. L,ike a 
met^t majority of all rSernians, lie is lo under.stand exactly why there 
i.-< not more sympathy In the T'nited 
States for Germany. 

"There i.s no use or in purpose lo ho

devour all your news. My German la 
very useful, of course, and I am gener-

hear lots of things, and their Ignorance 
on the war Is amazing. They arc Just 
fed on lies. Their officers tell them 
they are w'hining, that Paris la tak«n: 
but the same ofBcers drive the men to 
fight at the revolver's point. I bagged 
my very first German at thirty yards' 
range at Ulanch-e. lie was a Uhlan and, 
all unconscious of our proximity, walk- 
ed out of a wood. He never knew any- 
tbing, as my bullet hit him full in the 
throat and broke hia nook. We only 
bagged four of them; tho others kept 
to tlu- wood. :\t a later date I knocked 
one over at 1,200 yards with my sixth 
shot. Ho was a scout and showed up 
on a hill, as 1 thought, 1,000 yards 
away; ."o I sighted my rifle to that dis- 
tance, with no result. But 1 saw my 
sights to l,2<.iO and tried. He moved. 
Out my next took him between the 
shoulders and brought him down. 

AVe took our turn in the trenches — 
an unforgettable' time It was, as most 
of the attacking was done at night, and 
a weird sight we had. Bursting shell, 
sickly moon, a haze of enemy, the sma'-t 
rattle of our Afaxims and rifles, tho 
cries of the wounded — all hell let loose: 
our fellowK grim but cheerful, the 
enemy courting sudden death and land- 
ing it as we mowed them down in 
heaps. .">rot a yard could the modern

In the above words Fii'diTiek Wil- 
lielni. Crown Prince uf Uerniany. and 
tii'-lr to the throne of the Kais<>r, opened 
the first Interview he has c>ver given tn 
H foreign newspaper man 

"f am very pleased to sec > mi liere,"

Ills first interview in Kngllsli. 

"I am a soMk-r and therefor.' caiinnt 
discuss politics." said the Crown Prince, 
"hut It seems to me that this wholo 
I'lislness, all of this action that you see 
around here, is senseless, unnecessary 
and uncalled for. 

"But Germany was left no choice in 
tho matter. Kroni the lowest to the 
highest we all know that we are fighting 
for our e^xlstence. I know that soldiers 
<jf other nations probably say that and 
a groat many of them probably think 
the same thing. This does not alter the 
fact, however, that we are actually 
llirhtlng for our national life. 

•'Since we knew that the present war 
was to be forced on us. It became om- 
tiighest duty to anticipate the struggle 
by every necessary and possible prepara- 
tion for defense of the Fatherland 
ajsninst the Iron ring which our en- 
emies have for years been carefully and 
sii'adil.v Avelding about us.

"So power on earth will ever be able 
to convince our people that this war 
was not engineered solely and wholly 
with a view to cruslting the Gernian 
people, their Oovernment, their instltu- 
tiona and all that they hold dear. As 
a result you will find the German peo- 
ple are one grand unit imbued with a 
magnlflcent spirit of self sacrifice." 

The scene of our conversation was 
iJie drawing-room of a small French 
villa, located a few mllos directly bacls 
of the German fighting line, and It was 
used by the ('rown Princo as a head- 
iiuartors for himself and staff. 

The prince wore on his uniform the 
inslgna of his rank as lleutenant-gcn- 
oral and his recently acc4uirod black and 
wiiite ribbon of the Order of the Iron 
Cro8.s. He carried no sword, but toyed 
With a short swagger stick similar to 
those carried by English cavalry. 

CUir conversation had been In prog- 
ress but a sliort tim6 when it became to me that the Crown Prince, like 
:"!• per cent of the Germans I had mot 
on the firing line and off It, holds Brit- 
ain re.'iponalhie for tlie present war. 

Karly in the conversation the Crown 
Prince assumed the role of the Inter- 
viewer, and made evident his deep in- 
ti. rest In the sentiment of tho t'nltod 
Ki.itos and his lack of underatanding of 
II,.. general attitude of the United States 
I 'Wards Germany's position. l.,ike a 
Aiiei^t majority of all Ge.rmans. he is 
m.alJle to understand exactly why there 
is not more synnmthy In the United 
■'-'i.'itcs for Germany. 

"There is no use or in purpose to ha 
N. ivc<l by our closing our eyes," he sain, 
■;i> the fact that a very large part of 
111. world i.s us. But It sur- 
inisp.'s me that .Vrricrlctl, ~T7r~WTnch wo

Terror for SritliUx 

.\ ktier from an officer In a l-.ancer 
reslment Is reproduced in Tlie London 
Times, trom wnlch the following ex- 
tract la takon: 

"It was simply grand to recolve your 
letter of .September 33 la.'tt night, and 
I rushed to the dying glow of a fire to 
devour all your newa. My Gorman la 
very useful, of course. an<l X am eenei- 
ally put In charge of the prisoners, no 
hear lots of things, and their Ignoranco 
on the war la amaalnK. They arc just 
fed on lies. Their officers tell them 
they are winning, that Paris ia tak'Sn; 
but the .same oHlcer.* drive the men to 
tight at the revolver'.s point. I bagged 
my very first German at thirty yards' 
range at Blanclve, Ho was a Uhlan and, 
all unconsclouH of our pro.tlmlty, walk- 
ed out of a wood. He never knew any- 
thing, as my bullet hit him full In the 
throat and broke his neck. We only 
ha.irged four of therh; the others kept 
to the wood. .Vt a later date I knocked 
one over at 1,200 yards with my sixth 
Phot. He was a .scout and showed up 
on a hill, a.s J thought, 1,000 yards 
away; so I aishted my rifle to that dis- 
tance, with no r«auU. But I saw my 
sight!» to 1.2O0 and tried. He moved, 
but my next took him between tho 
sitoulders and brought him down. 

We took our turn In the trenches — 
an unforgettabU- time It wa*«, as 
of the attacking was done at nlxht, and 
a weird sight we had. nursting shell, 
sickly moon, a haze of enem.v, the ama'-t 
rattle of our ilaxims and rifles, th'i 
cries of the wound.ed — all hell let loose: 
our fellows grim but cheerful, the 
enemy trourtlng sudden death and (Ind- 
Ing It as we mowed them down In 
hcapH. Xot a yard could tho inoilern 
Huns make. Their craek corii.s liad no 
terrors fur our men."
