Parliament on Imperial Scale (Continued, irom front page). ', In his personal opinion they would never see the fabric of the 'British Empire made strong, powerful and irresistible, without establishing a great Imperial navy, controlled by an Imperial Parliament, which would make for the peace of, the world for the next generation. Without attempting'to put his,oar Into the politics of the old world, he looked forward to the day when the men of the Empire would be able to control the destinies of the Empire; that no single power or combination of powers would be able to,do anything but recognize that there had never been anything to compare with it. In New Zealand they had done.everything possible to defend the movement against raids. If.they believed in One Empire, One King, and One Flag, as they all did, then they ought to believe in one people. He'hoped the great minds of this country would realize that some change was essenr tialj so that all parts of the Empire could have representation without its being regarded as a complimeni^but aa the rest of the 0'verseas"dprhinions to enable them to do something to keep the British Empire, and to help it become greater and more powerful than it was today. i MINNESOTA TOWN BURNING , Duluth, Jan. 24.-Grand Maralas, an isolated town up the north shore of TunUe Superior, is rieportejd, to be burning. Meagre reports of part jOf'-'the--' town' already in ruins. 'The ;town is accessible only by wireless. k F. S. Jarvis was ..elected, president of 'the Gait Horse , Show association.

West Toronto The Car That Has Made History You know something about cars. You ought to. Manufacturers have flooded the press with 1913 announcements. While we have waited. The Russell-Knight "28" could have been placed upon the market two months ago; and at that it would have far surpassed every other car in Canada. But we waited, repeatedly testing and improving it, until now it seems no further improvement Is possible. The Russell-Knight is what you and the automobile world must acclaim the "Master creation among the world's great cars." Let us give you some facts about it. Call at the nearest branch or sgents and inspect this car. Or send for a fully descriptive illustrated pamphlet. The Russell-Knight "28" THE ENGINE Consider the'Knight Kngine. Mr. Knight, the inventor says that the Engine hi the Russell-Knight "28" is, at every conceivable point, the mos.'fc efficient and most magnificent engine that the automobile industry has ever known.. Its performance, under all conditions, is simply wonderful. The motor is a four cylinder 4% bore by 5 Ms in. stroke, the exceptionally long stroke giving particularly even pulling power at slow speeds. There is not a single gear or spring in the motor; silent cliainB arc used exclusively for the operation of moving parts and for the drive to the magneto and pump. FORCE-FEED LUBRICATION The system of lubrication is positive. It has been perfected and simplified. The oil is strained three times after leaving the bearings before reaching the pump. RUSSELL ELECTRIC STARTER This starter has been tested and improved until we know it to be as perfect as human ingenuity can make a starter. It will turn the motor over rapidly and quietly and if necessary, will actually develop enough power to run the car for more than thirty minutes. All you need 'to do is to raise the switch. Could anything be more simple or more conducive to the comfort of motoring? ELECTRIC LIGHTING Here is another example of Russell super-development. We have, after exhaustive tests adopted a combined electric lighting and self-starting dynamo and motor. This in connection with the storage battery in the car, not only supplies power to start the motor, but provides the electricity to keep the batteries charged and to light all the lamps on the car. The dynamo is of the most Improved type. The'armature takes the place of the fly-wheel of the engine. In this way it has not been necessary to add a single new bearing or a single new moving part nor any extra weight to the mechanism of the car. All five lamps on the car are electric and an electrice light is provided on the dash for the speedometer. It is go arranged that this light goes out when, the tail lamp does, a timely warning to the . driver which may be of frequent value. THE CLUTCH AND TRANSMISSION The clutch, which is of the multiple disc type, is , incorporated in the same aluminum housing with the transmission, and forms a unit with it. This is connected at the forward end with the engine by a noiseless universal joint of a type which is unique in this country and which has been used only on some of the highest grade European care. This unit will transmit, power to the rear axle with less loss of energy than any other transmls-' sion unit in any car on this continent. -THE AXLES The front axle is a single drop forging, "I" beam section with Tlmken roller bearings. The rear axle is of the full floating Tlmken type with roller bearings. It is not only ample in strength for the car-but it is silent in operation. POWER TIRE PUMP The driver can take this car out with the assurance that if a tire runs down all one h�B to do is to attach the hose connection, wait while the engine pumps the tire, disconnect, and go ahead. THE TIRES'' for the car are ample, Dunlop Traction Tread, 36 x 4% in. We furnish non-skid tires, because they are a feature of safety and convenience. The. tires are mounted on demountable rims and a spare rim Is supplied. This makes tire charigirig easy and helps to avoid road-side repairs. TONNEAU WIND SHIELD The Engine exhaust heating arrangement is an exclusive Russell feature. People can ride in the tonneau of an open Russell car in winter in comfort. The tonneau wind-shield and the engine exhaust heating arrangement keep the car comfortably warm. THE BODY The body is of the semi-Torpedo type, giving toll protection to the occupants. It Is of full aluminum with all-rolled mouldings. Doors are made from one piece aluminum with no joints to crack. Clever designing has brought the body lower to the ground. The long, low line iB particularly attractive. Canadian requirements have been carefully considered. Tihe front clearance from the ground is 11 & In., while that of the rear axle Is 11 in. LEFT DRIVE AND CENTRE CONTROL The left hand drive, with centre control is another specially developed feature of this model, permitting the free use of both front doors. By carrying the spare rim at the back of the car, all obstructions from the running board are removed. The mud guards are not only of attractive design, but are1 so fitted that they protect the whole of the body from the splash o� the wheels or from dust. UPHOLSTERY You will appreciate the luxurious upholstery of this car. Turkish'type cushions with new type springs and box frames are provided, while the rear seat upholstery is exceptionally deep. At every, point of construction , we have incorporated any feature 'that could improve the comfort or efficiency of the car. There isn't a car today that lav being assembled or being imported into Canada that can commence to compare with it in value for the money. .The tiame ' type of car In the'TJnited States Is sold at from $3,500 up.

Belle Guinness Alleged to be ' (Continued from front page). oh, the. other side. He wanted to be �sure before going, any, further. He had a friend in the police force of the city of Minneapolis, and communicated with him. Then it was that the story became noised abroad. Laporte oficials were notified. The press associations across the line heard the story, and it was carried in newspapers from coast to coast. Lethbridge was besalged with telegrams asking all about it, and police and newspaper men lost sieep following slim clues. Automobiles were chartered to visit the mine in question, but Mrs. Guineas, was never found. � What added weight to the claim of the man who started the story was that he claimed the woman suspected had in her possession three trunks, identical with those which appear In the history of the'Guiness case. These trunks axe..supposed- to have, been traced across the Mexican border. When they re-appeared-here, supposedly, it looked like a likely clue. The police and newspapers in Minneapolis Were hot on the trail of the clue, but investigation here proved nothing; they were informed that they had been misled. . That did not satisfy them. ''There" was a $5,000 bait. dangling at the end of:Mrs. .Guineas' capture, so the L'a-por'to' attorneys, who had . defended Lamp in the Guineas case sent out their ioyn ^leuths,-; � -J  Last Saturday: a Sherlock Holmes' arrived in the city. It is said that he is Chief of Police Melnke, of Laporte, when he Is at home. Not more than a couple knew of his presence in the city. He was given every opportunity to identify the lady susplcloned, and had records and photographs with him for that purpose. � But he went home empty-handed. So far as, he is concerned, his 2,000,-mile journey was icr nothing, but it assured him in his own mind that Mrs. Guineas is not a resident of Alberta. * The following telegram from La* porte tells of Chief Melnke's visit; "We understand Chief . of Police Meinke, of Laporte, . was in Lethbridge Sunday and Monday investl-' gating story that. Mrs. Guineas ,was cook in mining camp there, having been sent out by Laporte-attorneys, who defended Lamp here, on theory she escaped. Please rush particulars, of Melnke's visit and investigation." � Mrs. Guineas" is supposed to have been burned in her house,/together with her three children.'some four, years ago. A dentist ..who had done; some works for the murderess in .hen palmy days, identified, tile remains as. thoseof Mrs. Guineas by some special gold teeth in the lower jaw. � It is supposed that; she set the house on fire in order to burn herself, as at the. time the police', were hot on her' trail. . : > �s� ?
