Missing    Artilleryman    Believed      to
Have   Been   Murdered   by   Two
Malta.������ At somewhere nbout midnight nn Thursday two Maltese boatmen reported to the police that two
bluejackets and an artilleryman had
embarked on their craft for conveyance from Valetta io SUema, and thai
when In mid-soa the sailors and the
Boldier quarreled, the former throwing the artilleryman overboard. A
high sea was running at the time and
the sailors, by Intimidation, prevented
tbe boatmen from attempting to rescue the soldier.
On reaching the shore the sailors
decamped, and the boatmen then returned to the spot where the soldier
had been thrown overboard, but as
their search prove: fruitless they reported the matter to the police. All
sailors' leave was stopped, and the
boatmen were conveyed on board each
warship and confronted with the men
who had been given shore leave the
previous night.
Both boatmen in turn identified
William John Payne and Albert Woodcock, both able seamen belonging to
the Royal Arthur, which arrived here
on Friday en route for China. The
missing artilleryman is Gunner Hour-
ihane, of (15 Company of the Koyal
Garrison Artillery. He is 22 years
Both Payne and Woodcock bave
been arrested, and the Royal Arthur's
departure bas beer delayed pending
the magisterial inquiry, which is proceeding. Both prisoners have admitted having been in the boat in which
a quarrel arose, saying that they
made this statement hecause leave of
all men bad been stopped. Consequently they did not wish to sacrifice other men.
One of the prisoners in his statement to the ship's commander said:
The soldier hit me and I hit him, and
being drunk he overbalanced and fell
out of the boat in*o the sea. Several witnesses from the Iloyal Arthur
are being heard, and afterward the
inquiry will be adjourned and the
Royal Arthur will sail. The prisoners having admitted being on the boat
will be remanded.

The South Pols
The south pole is situated on an antarctic continent larger than the
United States and with an area of
6,(100.000 miles.
The pole is on a tableland about
10,000 feet above the sea level.
The greal ice barrier ls a glacier
700 mile.s wide and hundreds of miles
broad in planes; It varies from 100 to
300 feet in height.
The breaking off of portions of this
ice barrier each summer produces the
greatest crop of icebergs iu the world.
Mount Erebus belches steam and
lava within the circle of eternal ice.
Vegetation in ihe ani.ai'clic continent consists entirely of moss; Ihe
land animal life is limited to a species of wingless insects very primitive
in form.
The only human beings In the antarctic continent are explorers; no
traces of native Inhabitants have ever
been discovered.
Penguin.-, great, awkward birds, exist along the coast in some porta.

Former English Army Officer Discovered Dead in Rather Strange
London, England.���An ex-army officer's unsuccessful struggle to cure
himself of the drug habit was described at an inquest at Guston, Dover,
on Claude W. Lawrence Marshall,
aged 41, of independent means, whose
body was found in a railway. A
broken hypodermic syringe and two
empty drug bottles were found near
the body. Dr. Marshall was formerly an ollleer in the South Staffordshire
Mrs. Marshall stated that her husband had been addicted to the drug
habit for several years, taking morphia and cocaine, lie broke off the
habit last year for a time, but could
not do without the drugs, and resumed
them. She had known him to go
into this railway tunnel for the purpose of injecting morphia into his leg.
He went into the tunnel because n
was dark there, and he objected to
making the injections in the light. He
told her once that after he had injected morphia into his leg in the tunnel
he became unconscious on the bridge
just above. She thought that on
this occasion he might have become
unconscious In the tunnel. She once
found him unconscious in a pit as a
result of the drug. Mrs. Marshall
added that her husband was very
bright and showed no signs of suicide.
Evidence as to the finding of the
body pointed to the fact tbat Mr.
Marshall had his back against the
wall of tbe railway tunnel and was
leaning down injecting morphia Into
his leg when lhe train struck him; or
else lhat he had made the injection
and lost consciousness in that position
at the time of the fatality.
It was said that members of Dover
police force hail frequently seen Mr.
Marshall in the vicinity of lhe spot
Injecting morphia. It was mentioned
that he had injected as much as sixty
grains of morpbl - al a time.
The jury returned a verdict of death

The Unwritten Law Viewed in France
From Standpoint of Approval
Paris, Prance,���The assize court
at Dijon, tried a fanner named Ernest
Qauthier for the murder of a neighbor
named Fufey, whom he surprised with
his wife. Guuthler dealt his rival
two blows with a spade and tin- man
died the next day. The farmer also
attacked hla wife and then gave himself up to the police. Mine, tlauth-
ier committed suicide a few d.*jys
At the trial, tlie judge mildly reproached Oauthier, and informed blm
that It. would have been ea3y for him
lo obtain a divorce.
Addressing the jury, the public
prosecutor s..id: Give him a few weeks
in prison, a few days for the principle.
After examining the facts and emphasising the shortcomings of the dead
woman, he concluded; Having regard
to all Ihe circumstances, would it not
bo bettor for you to exercise your
sovereign right and pardon the accused?
The jury after a brief deliberation
brought in a verdict of acquittal.

Camorrlst He Had Just Sentenced
Naples.���All attempt has recently
been made by a I'animorist prisoner
to strangle a judge at the Naples
criminal court recently. Two members of the Neapolitan Camorra, Spal-
anea and Guadagnt, were found
guilty of theft, and were each sentenced to sixteen months' Imprison-
Immediately sentence was pronounced the prisoner Guadagni, a man of
Herculean proportions, felled the two
carablnlerl who were on guard and
escaped from the iron cage in which
he was confined. He dashed toward
the judge, and blacked the eye ot a
I lawyer who attempted to stop him,
I while two ushers each received a blow
on Ihe nose.
There was a wild stampede from
the court, and the president rose and
wrapped himself in his roboa as
though uncertain whether to beat a
retreat. The infuriated Camorrlst

A brief correspondence ensued.
Why, asked headquarters, do you

Letters to the Editor
Dear Sit:
I After reading the very able and
instructive articles un local conditions that have recently appeared
in these columns by "A member of
the Board of Trade," and hearing
the comments on these articles we
have come to the conclusion that
this is a much more effective method
of rationally discussing the various
questions involved than by stirring
up old animosities in noisy public
meetings, Therefore we beg to
briefly state why we believe it most
expedient to incorporate Coin tentiy
at once.
It was well said at the recent
public meeting that we should give
this subject most careful consideration, and we have carefully studied the proposition from every
possible angle.
We lind that we can fulfill till of
the requirements of the law, as we
have more than the necessary number of male British subjects of mature age resident within the proposed area, so it remains for us to
decide for ourselves as to the expediency of incorporating, Some
seem to fear heavy taxes; but we
find that by taking the government
assessment we will start out with
an assessment of over half a million
and the taxes from that, together
with the income from our own
water works and electric lights.
Oh dear, there we are mixed up
with the notorious water works
question in spite of ourselves. There
are some questions, just like bedbugs, that will force themselves
onto oue regardless of how one may
dodge. "With malice toward none"
we must all admit that just as long
as Courtenay lies helpless in her
cradle, anyone can take candy from
the baby. This happens t* be the
first of the many important undertakings that will present themselves
as Courtenay developes. With no
organization, she was unprepared
but a word to the wise should be
sufficient, aud we ought not to
allow ourselves tobe caught napping
But to return to the matter of the
ciu 's income, we find that without
increasing the assessment at all we
have au income amply sufficient for
all practical purposes, aud that it
will lie entirely with ourselves to
say how this income shall be expended . A' 'Local Improvements''
by-law will throw the burden of
the expense of opening up new
streets on t<5 the property owners
of those streets, so the city need
have no fear of expense from that
As long as the so-called civilized
nations permit the manufacture
and sale of intoxicating liquors, we
shall have to protect ourselves and
our families as best we may from
its contaminating influences. We
must regulate the sale of the poison
and the actions of the poor poisoned
wretches who use it as carefully as
possible. The government has
enough to attend to without regulating our morals, so we must incorporate and thus put ourselves in
a position to act in the matter.
In studying this subject of incorporation we find that those who
arc most strongly iu favor of it are
our most prominent, public spirited,
property holding citizens, whose
only interest in the matter is in the
general good and development of
Courtenay, while it is extremely
obvious, that those who are most
strenuous in tlieir opposition are
trying to shield individual interests.
In order to advance a city, like
a man, must have self-confidence.
Just as love begets love, so confidence begets confidence. We must
furnish Courtenay with her self-
confidence, in order that outside
investors and manufactures will
pick this favorable spot for their
So, looking from the point of
view of the property owner, we are
unreservedly in favor of the immediate incorporation of Courtenay;
as we have found that we have a
sufficient amount of taxable property, and that the public spirited
citizens who are in favor of the
municipal ownership of public utilities are working only for the
general good and prosperity of
Courtenay in advocating incorporation that we may save ourselves
from being robbed.
A Taxpayer.
Dear Sir:
1 have noticed severe! remarks in yonr
valuable paper which show that vou are
alive tn the fact that the Oriental Sines-
lion has "hit" Courtenay, Vim are in
favor'of the total exclusion of Japs, China-
imii nml aliens in general, Vour s oguii
is "Keep Courtenay white." Vou be-
1 lieve that Courtenay slioulil take the
attitude of California. Perhaps souie ol
your fairminded subscribers would like
to hear both sides of the question.
The only Orientals who lmlil any
I stretch of land in this district are the
I Japs. Now if the Japs refused to abide
1 by tile laws of the country, il he was
guilty of insobriety or disorderly conduct
j we would have some reason to hiil him
I return to Japan or u trifle further.    Ilut
j on the contrary the Jap is sober, enter-
I prising, energetic, industrious ami endowed with plenty of writ and  pluck.
These are au array of characteristics which
should be some warrant of good citizenship.
Well, that is one side of the question,
Now lake a look at the other side, what
is the .lap's offense, the crime for which
you would close the nates of the country
to llitu, The Jap's offense, as we all
know, lies in his very Industry. During
the American period of his extstnnce lie
takes uo thought for education, polities
or auythiugexcept money-grubbing, In
Japan he has bceu ground down liy taxes
which make him a virtual slave. When
he comes to this land of promise he does
not adapt himself to his new conditions
of living. Me still keeps at his slavery, and
whose fault is il? Do Canadians try to
make a good citizen of him.' Are the
people of this Valley giving the Japs thai
come here a fair chance to become gootl
citizens? No. They are not. Du the
contrary they are taking advantage of
them. They are paying them low wages
hecause they are willing to take them,
They ar,' charging then high rents he-
cause they are willing to pay them. And
then they are blaming them for working
for wages which a white man cannot
work for and for living as a white man
does not wish to live. Is it right.' Is it
fair? Is it Ilritish? Can we blame the
Japs for looking askance on things
Ilritish when we have given them this
foretaste of Ilritish fair-play.
The question which soon must he answered not by Courtenay alone, hut by
Canadians as a nation, is whether we are
going to take the stand which California
has taken, widen the breach which now
exists between the Kast and West and
make the war-cloud a stern reality, or
whether we arc going to give the little
lap a fair chance to show wnit is in Him,
Young Westerner.

An unusual degree ul Interest ilj
ji.st now centered arounl Hm colony
of Mormons residing in Alberta, ovei
the surprising announcement bt
President Joseph Smith, at the rcceul
Semi-annual conference at Suit Lake
City, that the church would shortly
commence tbe erection <>f a great tent'
pie in one of the settlements m tin
Canadian colony. President Smith
staled in making the announcement
to the conference that tha assembled
priesthood oi the church had given a
hearty and unanimous endorsement to .
tha plan. In view of the rapidly increasing strength of the Canadian coi-
only nnd tlie freedom and protection
afforded them by tho Government ol
tin* Dominion,
The announcement has  startled all ,
western Canada, especially tboso who
have watched the colony since its in-
caption twenty yours ago.   There are j
now about 10,000 Utter Day Saints in
Alberta, and they have built some of
tho linest towns in the province. They
are enterptlsing nud industrious, ami
respect the laws of the Dominion and
honor tho flag of the Empire with st
muoh   zeal    as   do    their   "gentile"
neighbors.   They have elected a Mor- I
mon to the Provincial Assembly, Mar- |
tin Woolf, of Cardston, being the representative. . I
Fostered by the free institutions ol j
Britain, Mormonism has gained a firm I
footing on Canadian soil.    United ef- j
forts have been made by various religious and women's organizations re- |
p<atedly  to destroy  tbe  colony  root
and branch, asking that they be deported as undesirables.   But thus far
their energies have been expended in
vain.    The   Government   apparently
sees   no   reason   why   the   Mormons
should not dwell in Canada so long
ad they observe the laws, especially
in  respect to  plural   marriage.    Tha
opponents of these people in Canada
allege that polygamy is practiced, but
they cannot prove it.   Therefore, their
hands   are   tied,   and   the colony   is
growing stronger aud stronger as the
years pass.
This latest project, however, has
created great excitement. It 13 tangible proof that the Mormons are in
Canada to stay, for the proposed
temple will be a massive structure
constructed with a view to provide
for the generations yet unborn. The
estimated cost is $150,000 and ull the
magnificent interior embellishment,
and fixtures, characteristic of the temples in Utah will be placed in the
edifice in the Dominion. The rites
and ordinances, which can be performed only in the temples, will be
fully provided for and in every respect the sacred building will be constructed and furnished after the revealed plan.
It is a marvel how these people
have flourished on tbe plains oi western Canada. Led by Charles Ors
Card from Utah���their purpose to
find a haven from the polygamy war
then at its height io that state���they
prosecuted tlieir lonely and unknown
trek northward, similar to the gigan-
tio migration of the Mormons from
the east under Brigham Young. Cross,
ing the international boundary line,
they found a home on the grass-covered prairies that swept from the base
of the Rockies far into the unknown
horizon to the east. Alberta then was
one vast stretch oi inhospitable wilderness���the home of the trapper and
isolated rancher. But with innate
perseverance and industry the Mormons converted the broad, rolling,
plains into golden fields of grain, dotted here and there with prosperous
towns and villages. This was really
the first demonstration of the fertility
and possibilities of the last great
west; and since that time a constant
stream of immigration has poured into the land of farms, the future home
of contented millions.
Two years ago the Mormons built %
college in Raymond. This was viewed
with anxiety by the ministerial associations, and strong resolutions were
passed and bitter words were said
against this sect. The people were
unmoved, and nothing came of it
save a great deal of discussion in the
press Mill pulpit. But now that this
latest and most gigantic enterprise is
announced the staggered public will
undoubtedly be aroused as a unit.
Just what tactics will be pursued is
not known, hut it is likely that an
emphatic protest will go out from ail
over the country, forcing the Government to action.

A Chilly Forseast
The earth ls growing In bulk on account of tbe meteoric dust that falls on
It It has recently been estimated that
100 tons fall daily over the surface ot
the globe, and that millions of years
hence this will have increased the
thickness of the earth considerably.
Tbis would have a tendency to bring
ns closer to the sun. But centrifugal
force ls augmented at the same time In
greater proportion and counteracts this
tendency; consequently the earth would
be swept away from the sun, with the
result tbat Its distance from that body
would be considerably augmented.
This Is spoken of as having possibly

Milk and Ministers.
Milk became a very important part
of tbe food of families in tbe colonial
days of the eighteenth century. In
1728 a discussion took place In the
Boston nowspapers*as to the expense
of keeping a family of "middling figure." These writers all named only
bread and milk for breakfast and supper. As cows increased In number,
milk, of course, became more frequently used. Rev. Mr. Hlgglnson In 1030
wrote that milk cost lu Sulcm but a
penny a quart, while unother minister, John Cotton, said thnt milk and
