I.L
General Manager of Canadian
Collieries it succeeded by
J. R. Lockard.
W. L, Coulson, who for a number of years has been general
manager of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir) Ltd., has resigned that position in order to obtain
rest for his health.
Mr. Coulson has been seriously
ill for the past year or more. It
is only a few months ago he
journeyed to New York to consult a specialist, and he has been
desirous of being relieved of the
many duties incident to his
position. However, he was induced to remain with the company until the labour difficulties
at the Extension and Comox
mines, of which Cumberland
■'s the centre,  had been fully
(settled and the work of construc-
fion, which is on a large scale at
he collieries around Cumberland,
|.dvanced to practical completion.
As the so called holiday, which
ommenced on September 16th,
912, is now a thing of the past,
ocal mines working with a full
omplement of men and the Ex-
ension Mines rapidly approach-
rig their normal rate of produc-
Iion, this has seemed an oppor*
une time for Mr.Coulson to take
is much needed rest.
Mr. J. R. Lockard, who has
Ieen general superintendent of
ie local mines under Mr. Coul-
1m, has been appointed general
'anager of all the company's
lines and properties in Cumber*
.rid and Extension districts. Mr.
lockard will continue the firm
id '.nergetic policies so success-
,M!y followed by Mr. Coulson in
I e past.
A feeling of satisfaction per-
eated the district when it heme known that the general
perintendent had been promot-
to general  manager.     He
I joys the confidence of his
iployees and is held in the high-
t esteem and respect by the
lole community.
(OUTPUT FOR NOVEMBER
The output for the local mines
• the month of November totals
(522 tons, which compares
ourably with the same month
l-vious to the so-called holiday.
STRANGE PROCEDURE.
The strike began in Cumberland on September 16th. Five
days later a commnnication was
addressed to Premier McBride,
signed by Messrs. Foster, Pettigrew and Irvine, the second-
named being the writer. The
letter is quoted in full in the report of Commissioner Price, and
while it purports to give the facts
of the origin of the trouble, it
contains some serious misstatements. It says that upon the
posting of the report of tne gas
committee " the management of
the mines called upon the Chief
Inspector of Mines, Mr. Graham,
to come to Extension and make
an examination of the pluces in
which gas had been found. This
he did and the report of the gas
committee was verified." It has
to be remembered that the report
of this communication was addressed to the Minister of Mines
in whose department the reports
both of the gas committee and
mines inspectors are filed. As a
matter of fact, at that time, Inspector Graham was never
called in by the management of
the mines. The report of the gas
committee was only received at
the Mines Department ten days
after the examination of the
mine was made. It was not sent
by the gas committee, but the
officers of the Ladysmith local of
the United Mine Workers of
America. Chief Inspector Graham
was away in the upper country
at the time, and Inspector Morgan was sent to Exension. He
made an examination of the mine
on the 27th of June, and he did
not verify the report of the gas
committee. It was utterly impossible for him to do so, seeing
that his examination was made
twelve days after their's. His
report stated that the places referred to by the gas committee
were all 0. K. so far as danger
was concerned. Yet with all
these fac s in there own possession and knowing also they were
likewise in the possession of the
mines department, Pettigrew and
his brother officers sign their
names to such a statement as
this, addressed to the Minister of
Mines and Premier of the Province. Surely this is strange
procedure and curiously inspired
leadership.—Nanaimo Herald.
COWLER FOUND
NOT GUILTY
Men Charged With Assault on
Constable Taylor Acquitted
by-Jury.
New Westminster, Dec. 2.—
Seven men charged with assaulting Provincial Constable Taylor
during the Nanaimo riots were
this evening declared not guilty
of the charge by a jury. The
men were Thomas Cowler, Richard Griffith, William Hoy, James
Baird, Tony Rinaldo, John Jackson and Tony Cierello,
When the crown counsel Taylor
closed the case several of the
accused took the stand in their
own defence. There evidence
was corroborated by several independent witnesses as in the
case of the Cumberland intimida-
ion trial. Evidence of the prosecution was flatly contradicted by
that of the defense. The main
witnesses for the Crown were
the provincial police and members of the Nanaimo City police
force,
There was a riot charge against
all seven men but they were
allowed out on bail pending their
trial on that charge. Cowler and
Baird who had previously been
refused bail also being granted it
on this occasion.
James Hodgkinson, a merchant
of Nanaimo, who had gone to the
wharf that day to attend to some
freight shipments, corroborated
the statements of several of the
accused. |

THE FISHERIES QUESTION.
London, Dec. 2.—Long judgement was delivered today by Lord
Haldane of the Privy Council in
appeal of the Government of B.
C. in respect to fishing rights.
The Law Lords decided the fisheries question in favour of the
Dominion and declared that fishing in tidal waters is right open
to all. Exclusive power of regulation rests with the Dominion
parliament and the right to fish
in arms and estuaries of the sea
is declared to be a public right of
the same character as that enjoyed by the public in the open seas.

THE MODERN AUTOCRAT.
In connection with a recent
strike in Seattle, which was a
failure, owing to the fact 'hat it
was for recognition of the union
and not for betterment of the men
for they themselves proclaimed
perfect satisfaction with their
jobs, we found autocracy spread
on as a child spreads butter on
bread, says the Pacific Coast
Mechanic.
A labor agitator, imported to
the City of Seattle from down the
Pacific Coast, the kind that has
as much interest in the laboring
man's welfare as a burglar has
for a burglar alarm,demonstrated
his ability as an oligarchist from
the time he arrived in the city
until his departure.
To cut a long story short—this
illustrious autocrat called the
workingmen out on strike, men
who were satisfied with the
money they were making, causing them to lose their positions as
well as six weeks' work, inflicting
upon them the burden of seeking
work elsewhere, while he registered and occupied an expensive
suite of rooms at one of our most
exclusive hosteleries, the Washington Hotel, and paid the bill
from dues collected as strike
funds, amounting to $7.80 per
day.

The following article from the
News Advertiser is a sufficient
reply to Mr. Thos. Richardson's
complaint of the way in which
the strikers in Nanaimo have
been treated by the. Provincial
Government. Mr. Ritchardson
promises to raise the whole
question in the British House
of Commons. Here is what the
News Advertiser has to say;
"It may be hoped that Thos.
Richardson,   M.P.,   will   make
good his promise to bring before
the British Parliament the statement he has made outside of it
about the conduct of the militia
at Nanaimo and its neighborhood.
Then there will be an opportunity
for some person with correct information to show how badly the
member   for   Whitehaven   has
been informed. His   statement
that the labour meeting was broken up by the militia is absurdly
incorrect, as it is well known that
the militia  waited calmly and
long for the meeting to finish its
business. No one has more reason
to be thankful that the soldiers
were called to Nanaimo than the
men whose lawless course was
arrested before it had gone farther. No one has  more  reason
than those who committed the
outrages of the period to regret
that the force did not arrive at
Nanaimo a day or two earlier.
That would  have saved  many
people a day and a night of terror
ard much personal loss and injury
It would have protected badly
advised and rash men who are
ordinarily law abiding, from the
commission of offences for which
they are now paying the penalty,
and from implication or casting
suspicion upon others who have
paid some penalty though they
are acquitted. We do not enter
into the question of the guilt or
innocence of particular persons,
or of the measure of any man's
offence. But we say again that
it is due to the militia that the
unfortunate affair was not worse
and that while the soldiers could
not well have been sent to the
scene of disturbance sooner than
they were it would   have  been
well for both union and non-union
men if a force strong enough to
keep peace had been there when
the trouble began."
COMMISSIONER  PRICE'S
REPORT.
The total number of men employed at the Cumberland mines
prior to the cessation of work
was 983, at Extension, 700 at the
Western Fuel Company's mines,
Nanaimo, 1,494' exclusive of
some300 more at their sawmill,
farm, etc.; at South Wellington,
350, and Jingle Pot 250, making
a total of 3,777 men, exclusive of
the 300 engaged at the sawmill
and upon the farm of the Western Fuel Company. The great
majority of the men have been
without employment since the
commencement of the trouble at
their respective mines.
Most of the men employed in
these mines are English speaking, largely English and Scotch,
or of English and Scotch descent
but for some branches of tho
work, especially above ground.
Oriental labour is employed, the
number of Chinese employed in
all the coast mines inl912 being
given as 622, and Japanese as
117.
At the time of the inquiry
there were about 800 men working at Cumberland, and 200 at
Extension. Some of these are
former employees who have gone
back, quite a number are new
men tha** have been brought or
come in, and a large number are
Orientals. Out of a total of 690
under ground men employed in
this company's mines in May
1913, 432 were Orientals, and
among surface men the proportion is probably larger.
Quite a number of the former
employees of all the mines left
the island, either to work or to
take a holiday elsewhere, a few
have taken up other occupations
in the island, but the great majority are still in idleness, waiting the turn of events. An
unusually large proportion of the
men, especially at Nanaimo,
have good homes of their own,
and, as a class they are exceedingly well-to-do. Nanaimo is
beyond comparison, the finest
mining town I have ever been in.

lie walked quickly down the road
through the vii.age. The forgo was
still open anil the blacksmith came
cut to wish him good-evening, hoping
for a ciiat. but wltb a curt nod, Murray passed on. On all sides hi was
received with kiadjy looks and greetings, and as a rule, bo had a tew
v..-its for -very one, but tills evening
it wss obvious he was anxious to escape
Something wrong: tbe blacksmith

Similar thoughts rushed through
Murray's head as be strolled towards
tho bridge spanning llio river. Perhaps
he had waited too long? But ha
had been so sure of himself and of
Peggy, lie ' ad no: waited without a
reason.
He stood on the bridge and leant
over, watching the waters as they
Eang and tumbled on tiler way through
tho moorland to the ecu. He had
hoped to find her fishing, but the
banks on eitl er side wire deserted.
The sun was se.'.ing. the countryside was very quiet, birds piped in
tlio hedgerow; a llltle brcez.i now and
titer stirred the leaves. Hut presently the sotiud of horse's hoofs smote
his car. Turning round he saw the
woniau who filled his thoughts.
Peggy was mounted on a smart bay
cob which Murray recognized with a
throb of jealous fear—for it came
from the stables of Cranby Hr.il!
I have had such a ripping ride,
sho said, leaning towards him. her
face aglow, her eyes shining. I hav,
been towards Bordlelgh, though t perhaps I might meet you.
I was driving to-day- iu tire opposite direction.
A year or* two ago, when he had
first hluled of his love for* Peggy they
had ridden togethe:; he had a couple
of horses then and had heen able to
mount her. It was when he reali/.ed
what a real and vital lliii.g his love
had become, that he had suddenly altered bis mod., of life; given up every
luxury, even some necessities. Kept
a single sturdy horse and old fashion-
knocked off hunting, even an
aud tvork-
-l like a Trojan to ineera*. y his practice, to save overp penny until be could
afford to '.eave jranby and buy a decent living In a decent town. And
then—make Peggy Mehon his wife and
glvo her some of tho .rood things in
iifo for* which he knew she yearned.
Dreams!—beautiful and possible.
But while ho worked and dreamed it
had never entered his head that Peggy might tin of waiting. Man-like,
he look the woman lor granted; lie
had no rival, for no one had told him
that u young girl's thoughts are often
a lover's bitterest foe.
Are you ,-,-ing to exercise Sir
George's horses for him wr.ilo he is
away? Murray asked abruptly.
Peggy look*-. surprised, lie simply insisted that I should rido Joe
whenever I liked, and you know how
I love a gallop. Tel] nre. what do you
think of him, not a bit like wc expected, is he"
Are you speaking nf iii. horse or of
Sir George lletherington? the doctor
growled.
Then Pegay realized that something
was wrong. She slipped from ber
■raddle an*   stood by h.rr side.
What's Iho matter. Jim—you sound
cross: or are you only tired? I am
always telling you tiiat you worked

Hero's a street ear conversation that
may or may not have a moral, it al

friend of ours overheu-d it on a Euclid car.
Isn't It awful, eairl one fair scrap
hanger, to have to stand up all tlie
way home after shopping till your feet
are sore?
Yes, said tho other pretty, fair strap
hanger.   And r.o chance for a seat.
Weil, I don't blame the men sometimes. They say that ;i woman never
says thank you, if they do give up
their seats.
I always do. Wouldn't you say
thank you if one of these gentlemen
should givo you his seat?
No; 1 don't thin'   I would.
Why not?
I wouldn't be able to. I'd fainl away.

Ancient City Port Unearthed
Tlie most important discovery at
Pompeii for centuries is announced* It
came throt ;h tho efforts of Lorenzo
Co/.za, the sculptor of Itome, wbo has
been carrying on tho work began hy
his father. He has just unearthed the
first lemaitiB of tho ancient city port
situated 1,250 meters from the old
city seashore now, and 700 meters
from the old cily gate. It. was known
as P.rta Marina. The city of Pompeii itself is half a mile further inland than at the time of its destruction, tlio const having* been advanced.
Mr. Cor-rza worked on the theory ot
tiris displacement oi! the coast line
and for yenrs ho lias beer, experimenting -on a prn!ouga.t.li.. of the street
loading eastward from Porta Marina.
Recently ho came upon solid blocks of
granite at a depth, of 23 feot under
successive layers cf ashes, lava and
sand. lrixc. various proved that he
struck the original cmay, whoso stones
s.ill bear Indentations caused hy the
action of the waves. Much new light
will be thrown on the shipping customs of aniient Bonn. Further important discoveries arc awaited.

Place of Desolation
The abominatlou of desolation ia
this lake, declares a traveler who
has visited tho island of Trinidad,
whenco comes most of our asphalt.
In spots, a palm killed by tho ash-
piialt droops disconsolately. A few
tufts of grass have secured a footing in places. But for the rest it
is a solid mass of black, dull, evil-
smelling pirch, with pools of water
here and there in which swim little
parboiled fishes. Against any of the
hot spots in tho worid, bar none, this
can be backed.
A wicked looking black snake* six
feet long glides into the bushes near
the margin of ihe lake. It. has been
sunning itself on tho asphalt. No
wonder the serpents tire supposed to
be creatures of the devil. As for
otirself, 15 minutes stay lakes away
every bit of vitality wo can summon-
Not enough interest 's left in life to
inquire what the negroes hewing with
mattocks at the asphalt receive In
wages. They earn the pay, whatever
it Is.
There is no mechanical way yet discovered by which the stuff can bo dug.
Hour after hoirv thes neg.'oes hack
the frittlo pitch, which flakes nway In
pieces a- foot square. They lift tho
burden to their heads and dump It into steel buckets, wblch start their
slow way to tin ship. Tho holes fill
up in a few days with new pitch.
Tlio lake is 1)0 to 100 acres iu extent now, hut it Is gradually shrinking with tho removal ot such large
quantities. A good percentage of tho
asphalt pavemer.t ill the w-orld comes
trom this ono lako and Its geological
compliin nt in Venezuela.
Salt Cellar Hoodoo
In some parts of tlio world, particularly in Germany, it ls still believed
that tho upsetting of the salt cellar
is the direct act of Satan—the peace
disturber. And tho habit of trying
to avert any catastrophe which may
happen hy tossing a little ot the salt
over the shoulder Is due to tho belief
that by so doing one lilts tho invisible
Satan In the ej'e, which temporarily
at Ieasl, prevents him doing further
mischief.

Sir Sanford A Pathfinder
Tho London Times contlnuei a series ot articles on representative Canadians and d votes a column to Sir
Sanford Fleming, whose mind, tt says
is still vigorous and unclouded.
When he went to Canada at eighteen years ot age, .he sailed on a sailing ship which took forty days for
the voyage. On landing at Quebec
he had but twp or three pieces of
gold. lie lias since been a counsellor
to tho country's various governments,
a pathfinder for the Government and
devoted himself to problems ot the
Umpire, but has seldom been Involved
in party conflicts. To his mind there
is servitude in party allegiance.
Details of the work of settling the
Maine boundary dispute were undertaken by him, as also were surveys
for the C.P.R. construction in 1880
and 13S3.
The writer says that Sir Sanford
never evaded the obligations of citizenship and was not content with the
perfunctory performance of duty. He
ls also referred to as having n gracious mauner, hue courtesy and adequate dignity.

Attacked ty a Cheetah
A Dublin cusu- n irouso officer named Graves, hail an alarming experience
receur.ly. Ho was set upon In Rrrth-
miues. one of tho Bitburbs, by the
cheetah, an animal of tho leopard
type found in India anil Africa, which
had evidently escaped from its captors. Ho had ills dog and a thick
slick with him. nnd he succeeded iu
killing the animal. Ir. was while
walking near Grosvenor square about
midnight that tho strange-looking animal, somewhat larger than the Irish
terrier, suddenly sprang at him out
of a hedge neat* some gardens. With
a hoarse bark it gripped ills trousor
leg near the I.nee, tearing tlio cloth.
He shook tlto animal off, and a fierce
struggle then took place between it
and his dog. Seizing the dog's throat
the cheetah dragged hlui towards the
hedgo but Graves caught rlie cheetah
a heavy blow L eh I ml tho ear with his
stick, and killed it. The surmise is
that tlio ar.imal waa brought from
abroad by somo resident with the object of making it a pet*

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1913.
The announcement made in our columns a fortnight ago to the
effect that a subsidiary company to the Cumberland and Union
Waterworks Co. Ltd would shortly proceed to install a water system
at Courtenay has apparently created a sensation in that hustling
little burg and thrown our neighbour "The Review," into a state
bordering on panic. Our contemporary, in a vigorous article,
urges immediate incorporation of the village as the only effective
manner in which its public utilities can be conserved to the town
We agree with " The Review " to this extent, as we have always
maintained that municipal ownership, insofar as water and light
are concerned, is the only proper and logical system. The service
rendered to the public and the rates charged to the consumer are
under the direct control of the tax-payers and the profits derived
are applied in lessening the taxes.
But granting all this, we see no reason why the "Review," in
its impatience for incorporation, should go out of its way to trans*
Kress the rules of courtesy to a neighbouring town and throw an
undeserved reproach at an old and respectable company.
The "Review" says in parti-
There is no question but that a waterworks system would
be a good thing for Courtenay but we do not need it badly
enough to let the Cumberland Waterworks Company step in
and gobble it up when we can just as well own it ourselves,
There is no use denying the fact any longer, we must incorporate and we must do it at once or we will find ourselves in the
same predicament as Cumberland is today, in the grasp of the
same companies and bled to death What will our
citizens who have been opposing incorporation think of themselves if they let this octopus get its tentacles fastened upon us.
This is in poor taste. Cumberland has no quarrel with the
waterworks company and entertains no grudge towards it. On the
contrary its stock is well distributed amongst our citizens and i; a
pupular investment. We have always had an excellent scivice
and have never been "soaked" by excessive and exorbitant rat:s.
It is true that the company has latterly paid a fair dividend, but
this can hardly be deemed a crime and it must not be forgotten
that it was several years before they were able to pay any dividend
at all.
We hold no brief for the waterworks company; in fact we have
already stated that our sympathies are with Courtenay in her efforts
to secure municipal ownership for her public utilities. But no good
can be done by creating false impressions and misleading the
public. The inference that Cumberland is struggling in the hands
of a grasping and extortionate monopoly is an injustice to a company-who have always shown a desire to deal fairly and uprightly
by its patrons and is, at the same time, a misrepresentation of
Cumberland's position which its citizens will resent.

The Square Dealing House " 1
Sir Wilfrid Laurier is now protesting himself. This is the
latest of the latest of his political vagaries. As a piece of political
trickery it may please him, but it does him little credit. In the
meantime a Quebec riding is deprived of the parliamentary repre-
isntation it is entitled to. The leader of the opposition and his
lieutenants have of late been doing a lot of protesting in regard to
bye-elections. But in doing so the Liberal chieftian has very conveniently forgotten his own case. For two years Sir Wilfrid Laurier
by a technicality which the Liberals themselves created has been
holding two seats and has been depriving a riding of its right of
representation in parliament.
Sir Wilfrid in 1911 ran for two seats. One was Quebec East,
which he has represented for a generation, and the Soulanges. He
was elected for both. It was well known that he never intended
to represent Soulanges; his candidature there was a mere stop-gap
in view of party dissensions. By a peculiarity in the election law a
member elected for a constituency cannot resign his seat while
there is a protest against his return. The Liberals were afraid to
open Soulanges and a formal protest was lodged by their own party.
This protest has never been pressed, and was never intended to be
pressed. But as the Liberals wove afraid to open the riding for
fear of defeat, it has given them an opportunity to hang on to the
seat. For two years Sir Wilfrid himself has been scandalously
holding on to the two seats. . Before the Liberal chieftian talks any
more of elections and election protests, he had better take the beam
out of his own eye.
The result inChateauguay is not surprising.
THE above name we have rightly and justly
earned, and it is our aim to give n square deal to
everyone. We invite you to come in and share in tlie
benefits already enjoyed by a large number of satisfied

An old gentlenut ln a seoondclaM

Dr. J. M. Buckley, tho well known
editor and divine, addros.ing a New
i'orlt City Sunday school, related an
Incident tlrat greatly interested the
children. He told of meeting a ragged, hungry looking little girl ln the
strett on a wltf.cr day, and wheu he
qtiestion.-d her sho recited a pitiful
talo of a tick mother and younger
brothers and sisters without food.
After git ing her a silver dollar the
good doctor followed at a safe distance to see what sho would do wllh
tho .noucy.
Now, children, what do you suppose was the i.vst thing sho bought
wilh that dollar? aald Dr. Buckley.
Hands up.
Up weir, the hr.ndsvnnd one child
after another ventured* a guess, but
none proved c rent. Finally a little boy whose upraised hand alone remained was nsked tor hir answer to
tlio question,
A basket,  Ire  sung out.
Correct, raw" the doctor. There's
a boy who Ihlnks. Now-, son, come
up liei-o on the platform nnd tell us
wh;.' you think lt was a basket.
After considerable coaxing the boy
reached lhe platform, but seamed
unwilling ro talk. Go on, urged the
doctor, I want theso boys aud girls
lo learn to think, too.
Tiro boy hesitated, and Dr. Buckley iok from his pocket a silver
quarter, I'll Rive you this, ho said,
if you'll tell us wh-.ir makes you

How Monarehs Sleep
One might lmaglna that Shakaa-
peare's wcrda: TJneaay Ilea the head
that weara a crown," could be taken
literally after noting the manner In
which soma of our most important
sovereigns taka their rest.
The Czar ot ItusBla has a small
n'.aln bedroom, and reclines upon a
bed of soldierly hardness.
Japan's ruler, Uie Mikado, evldent-
ly considers that what sumclei for Ids
subjects Is good enough for their Emperor, and sleops on a rug with bamboo sticks for a pillow.
A camp-bed with the plainest accessories Is the Kaiser's choice, and the
Sovereigns of Italy and Austria sleep
upon small Iron bed-t.
It might be supposed that King
George's nara*. career would have given him a predilection for the hard,
plain mattress. But not so, both he
and Queen Mary prefer to sleep ln
such quarters as one usually associates with Royalty. King Alfonso
also follows ln their wake.

Mrs. Tan Tromp of New Tork was a

In llieir wanderings tb* Tan Troiups

But a globe trotter cannot romaln In

Miss Tan Tromp had become neb a

age, bnt ah* seldom became familiar
with them. Mr. Mackrldg* *Tlnced a
dealre for k*r cempanloaahlp, bot
found aa tk* Journey proceeded tbnt
k* waa not permuted to cam* to tormt
of Intimacy. Mr*. Tan Tromp watched hla attentions to ker dang Iter and
could not understand wky Madeline
(are no more cordial response.
"My dear," aald the politic moths*,
"if you would be mer* civil to Mr.
Mackrldge lt might be of great benefit
to us. He tells me that hla brother
haa a bona* ln London and ta usually
there during th* season. W« may b*
invited there and meet many persona
of rank."
"I thought hla brother wai a bachelor. Bachelors don't usually entertain."
"Oh, Madeline, yon don't grasp
things as you should. Ton will never

you hare no push. The fact that Mr.
Mackrldge'a brother* la a bachelor

"I hare thought, mother, dear, tbat
you preferred I sbould cultivate Mr.
MacUridgo himself."
Mrs. Van Tromp made a grimace,
bnt accorded no reply to inch atupldi-
ty, for sbe certainly considered any
girl stupid who would encourage a
younger brother of a marquis, even
though tbo marquis himself waa In bad
health.
During tbe passage of the Red sea
Mr. Mackrldge continued hla attentions, and Mrs. Van Tromp waa pleased Hint Madeline seemed more disposed to accept tbem. This acceptance
could not be construed to mean encouragement, but Mrs. Van Tromp felt
moro hopeful, and Mr. Mackrldge took
advantage of It to be more attentive.
ne gained a point with Mrs. Van
Tromp by letting out the fact thnt ha
was a captain In n British regiment
stationed in India, all the officer's of
which were noblemen. He had pro*
cured a leave of absence to go home,
having been Informed that bis brother,
Iho marquis, wns failing rapidly.
After receiving this additional Information Mrs. Van Tromp conceived the
idea of going ashoro lir Captain Mack-
rldsn's company on the ship's arrival
at Gibraltar. lie, being a British officer, would doublless be band lu glove
wilb the officers of tho garrison and
would be able to secure for tbe Van
Tromps special privileges. She hinted
to Mackrldgo tbnt she would be pleased to have him witb her and her
daughter when tbey visited Gibraltar, nnd he accepted tbo Invitation
wltb alacrity. But when tbey reached
tbo pert the captain wns confined to
bis stateroom wilh a severe Indisposition and wns unable to Icare the ship.
All went well wilh the trio who
were performing ihls little comedy
during tho latter part of tbo voyage.
Just before leaving the steamer Captain Mackrldge managed to obtain a
large bouquet of flowers. Whether he
bought them from a bumboat or tbey
bad been - iltlvated aboard tbe ship
does not matter. Tho Important feature is that he nresented them to Miss
Van Trump Tbe gift waa made while
the motber and daughter, accompanied
by tbo cnplaiu. were ..about to nass
down the gangway. The young lady
Inhaled tbelr nerfunio and started
down for the dock with them lu her
left hand, carrying a piece of hand
baggngo in her right. On reaching tbe
dock sbe suddenly remembered leaving
some article In her stateroom.
"Please .Ake these," she said to
Mackrldge, handing bl-ri the band baggage and hor bouquet, "and keep tbem
till I return. I'll be back In a few minutes."
Mackrldge took the nrtlclea. a certain
whiteness appearing about his mouth
and an anxiety tn bis eyes aa be did
so. Miss Van Tromp ran np tbe gangway, passing wllh difficulty thoso coming down, and disappeared within the
ship. A customs Inspector, wbo was
watching for smugglers, noticed a gen*
tleman standing wllh a large liour.net
ln his band and pondered. Had n lady
been currying lt his attention might
not have been attracted. Suspicious as

Probably the most remarkable decision on record waa in thla wise. The

Probably the most amazing decl-

players, who then mado no attempt to

"Short run!"
The verdict was hailed wllh a perfect tornado of laughter. But tho umpire did not seem to realize that only
a aecond or subsequent run could be

to the "offence" on a point of order;

A FIGHTING RACE.
Why Britain Left the Interior of
ttan-a'llaiul.
Somtllland, the scene of this severe
nrtrte, ls tn arid waste divided up
between Great Britain, Italy. France,
and Abyssinia. The present Somali
teoples are possessed of no general
type and their physical characteristics
rary considerably, abowlng signs of
Interbreeding with Arabs, AbysBlnlaus
tad aegroea. They are a race ot-jnag-
nlficent physique, Ull, active, and robust. Negro blood ls shown ln their
frequently bltck complexions and
wooly hair. The Somali are a fight-
tag race. Ail go armed with spear,
shield, and thort tword. ts well as a
gun, when lt is obtainable. During the
rains incessant Intertribal lootings of
ca'tle take place. Among certain
tribes those wbo have killed a nun
have the right to wear an ostrich feather la their hair. Somaliland was
•ne *f the last tracts of Africa to be
txplered hy Europeans. Tbe occupation of Aden by the British ln 1S09
proved the starting point In the op, n-
ing up of the country, Aden being tire
chief port wltb which the .Somali of
the opposite coast traded. The Bj it-
tab Somaliland rtotectorate extends
along the Gulf of .' Ien for about 400
miles, and stretches inland to a
breadth varying trom SO to 200 miles.
About 50,000 people are settled ln the
toast tjwns; the rest are nomads, who
are almost constantly giving trouble.
Tbe British connection with tha Somali toast datea from the early yeara
ef tbe last century, but British authority was not dofinltely established,
and In 1854 Richard Burton's expedition was attaeked at Berbers. In
1174 the ambition *f Ismail Pasha,
Khedive ot Egypt, ltd him to occupy
the posts of Tajura, Berbera and Bulbar, as well as Harrar tn the hinterland, Ten years later, ln consequence
•f tbe revolt et tbe Mahdl ln tht
Egyptian Soudan the Kbedivlal garrisons were withdrawn. Thereupon,
Great Britain, partly to secure the
route to the East via the Sues Oanal,
occupied Zalla, Berbera and Bulbar,
officials being aent from Aden to govern the posts. Treaties guaranteeing
British protection were concluded
with various Somali tribes, and the
houndarlea of the protectorate were
defined by agreements with France,
Italy, and Abyssinia. In 1899 Mohammed bin Abdullah, popularly
known an the Mad Mullah, flrst came
upon the scene. He had mad* several pilgrimages to Mecca, where he
had attached himself to a sect wblch
enjoined strict observance of the tenets ot Islam, and placed an interdict on the use of the leaves of tbe
kat plant, much Bought after hy, the
coast Arabs and Somali for their stimulating and intoxicating properties.
At first the Mullah's Influence was
exerted for good, and be kept the
tribes over whom be had control at
peace. Accredited with the possession
of supernatural powers, he gathered
around him a strong following. In
tho next few years Britain suffered
several disastrous reverses and during
thi first months of 1910 tbe advanced
poets were withdrawn nnd the British administration confined to the
coast towns, ln aupport of thla decision lt was urged that lt was no good
pursuing people whom It was Impossible to catch, that the Isolated posta
In the Interior had not been able to
protect the friendly tribes, and that
the semi-desert natnro of the country
did not justify any attempt at economic developme it. Before the withdrawal arrangements were made for
arming and organizing the tribes In
the Protectorate ln their own defence.
Free Emigration For Widows.
By October twenty widows with one
child each are required to Ball for New
South Wales to take up domestic
work, the money for tho journoy being advanced by a practical Imperialist who desires to remain anonymous.
The step Is regarded as an experiment In assisting a new typo of emigrant. Applicants for free passages
must not be more than thl-ty-five
years of age. muet produco their husbands' death certificates, and muet,
of course, be healthy and of exemplary character.
The result of this otter will be that
a brighter future will present Itself to
many widows who havo hitherto
struggl-d against adversity, and lt ls
s. eclally Intended to help those who
have thereby become brave and more
self-reliant. Tbe successful applicants
will be rcquiroa to give a guarantee
to take up domestic work, probably

accommodation for a child.

;    WHY SCOTSMEN SUCCEED.
■England's  Inferior Education Is Alleged as a Reason.
Harold Spender, In a recent t.on-
idon News says:
The vivid pen picture of English
(private schools given to the House of
j Commons by ihe Minister of Education have come as a shock. Doiho-
'boy Hall, it seems, ot III flourishes in
!our midst, and tho work of Dickens
Inquires to be done over again.
j Matthew Arnold pointed this out
jwlth all his power a generation ago.
I and the siory has been since repeated
1 by many brilliant writers and critics.
But the English people aro deaf, and
ln hundreds of rases parents prefer to
ser.d their children to ihese schools
even wben there are tbe very best fr^o
publio ecliocltr round lire corner. Had
educaliwi seems somehow always to
consort with "gentility."
But now certain remarkable signs
are appearing. Tlie boys from the
council schools, profiting by a thorough training ut ilie most Impressionable years, are Invading our ser*on-
dury schools aud universities, and
compelling the middle classes to look
tho facts in tire fact. Tho oilier day
ten council school boys appeared as
wranglers at Cambridge.! am Informed that In many of the secondary
schools of the L.O.O. winners of achol-
arablpa often rapidly take the lead
af the middle-class children.
At the universities tho public
schools atill keep an iron hand over
thn sports, but la matters of education they are often beaten by boys
from tb* grammar schools and the
council schools. It Ib clear that a
great crisis in education Is approaching. The middle-class parent will
have to wake up lt he and his offspring are to avoid defeat In the
ttruggle. A national comparison * -
reals tha same facts. In secondary
education England Ib far behind both
Scotland and Wales. The higher education of Scotland, stimulated by the
great boon of thn Carnegie Trust, is
moving steadily forward both In the
schools and ln the universities.
The result Is seen by iho fact that
tht urhappy English boy, thoiit'i
born of a stock certainly not less gifted. It too often beaten by tbe Scots
boy ln the competition for all th.'
higher offices and posts, loth of learning and business. The attitude of tbe
middle class In England ls, Indeed,
on* that exceeds onder. They pay
the education rate, but In nine eases
out of ten they refuse to avail themselves of lt. Tbey actually pay iu
order that their children should receive a far worse education than Ibe
working classes receive without paying another penny.
Exhausted with tbo expense of paying for bad schooling they often find
themselves, at the critical moment,
unable to start their, children ln life.
Thus they lose the one great financial
handicap that they have over their
working-class competitors. Meanwhile, these parents are too often unnecessarily obsessed with the middle-
class habit of Bending their children
away from home—a habit produced
by tht lack of gcod secondary schools
renly distributed throughout tho
country. By sent ng their children
away they lose control over their lives
and they sacrlflco all influence over
their characters.
And then they are surprised to find
that at the age when life ls opening
to tbelr children tbey havo lost all
parental control, and havo not even
obtained any superior educational
value.

Sin OLIVER  LODGE ANNOUNCES
CEKTAINIV.  OF l.VLMOIt IA1.IT1'.
 —
Celebrated British Scientist After
Applying tho Most liigid Tests to
Spiritistic Phenomena For Many
Vcnrs lias Arrived at tho Conclusion That Their Really Is Ilryond
Question.
It will be remembered that W. T.
' Stead, heroic victim of tiro Titanic dlB-
j aster, welcome iicqualntauco of *\lnga
! and Emperors and others tn the seats
j 'if tlie mighty, and probably the most
1 Holed journalist lu the world, was a
I timi believer In psychic communication Willi the world of lhe hereafter.
When preparing to face death, he reiterated that belief and t-pol, e of joln-
iug his previously deceased son, from
whom he hnd stated, verbally and lo
carefully prepared  printed volumes,
lio bad received numerous messages
from the   spirit   world   through 'he
Compulsory Massage Licensee.
Steps are to be taken at once ' -
th* London County Council to formulate proposals for Inclusion in the'r
General Powers Bill next year to license massage establishments and
maternity homes. Powers of r* 's-
tr.tlon, with the right of Inspection,
may be included In tbe bill, wblch
will be designed to sttmp out so-called massage, manicure, and electric
light treatment houses.
"sked to explain the position, the
chairman of the public control committee of tho council, taiilr "There is
no tr" ubt tbat th- evil Is growing, and
the police bave no power lo enter the
houses. It ls also almost Impossible
t obtain warrants for tho arrest of
those who conduct them, because Informant, will not como forward.
"We shall submit proposals for Inclusion ln next year's General Powers
BUI. The police are giving us every
facility ln our inquiries, and I hope
we ahall obtain power to register such
establishments, which will Involve Ihe j
right of Inspection by council otll-
cers. If tbey aro not Eaiishcd the :
places will be struck off the register. J
"There are many places which conduct a perfectly loglllmalo business,
and these will welcome registration."
sir oi.tvr.B r.oDor.
medli.m of an Inhabitant of that region whom he knew as "Julln."
Science has now lalreu a decided
hand In this problem, debated and dc-
bateable from the beginning of sentient existence. In a recent statement
of tbe famous Englishman, Sir Oliver
Lodge, admittedly the best all-round
scientist In the world at tbe present
time. He is president of the British
Association, the most authoritative
scientific body on earth, and he has
announced that tn his presidential address on September 10, tie will offer
complete evidence to show "an ulll-
iate continuity of existence before
and after death as essential to science," which, if accepted, will he a
distinct alignment of tbe most advanced scientific thought on the side
of Immortality. Sir Oliver already
has asserted that "tho boundary between the two slates—tho known and
tbe unknown, llfo and death — Ib
wearing thin In places, and excavators
are engaged ln boring a tunnel from
opposite ends. We aro beginning to
hear now and then strokes from the
pickaxes of our comrades on the other side."
Sir Oliver I.odgo has been a close
and skeptical student ot psychical
phenomena for many years, and after
long and patient observance of the
famous Italian psychic, Eusapla Pal-
ladlno, vas forced to admit that "any
person without Invincible prejudice,
who bad the same experiences, would
come to tbe same broad conclusion,
namely, that things heretofore held
impossible do actually occur. . . The
result of my experience is lo convince me that certain phenomena considered supernatural do belong lo
tbo order of nature."
It ls evident that the world Is soon
to witness the promulgation of another accession to tho natural laws which
govern Its place In the universe, and
one likely to arouso spirited religious
and Bcientiflo discussion.
Paper From Seaweed.
Seaweed paper bu been lnvontcd
by an English chemist. A Liverpool
wwspaper clipping forwarded by Con-
lul Washington states lhat It Is fireproof, waterproof and odorless, and Is
txptcted to "hare considerable effect
on the present system of wrapping
perishable goods for transport."
Condemned Modem Danees.
Canon Newbolt, preaching In St.
Paul'a Cathedral, London, recently,
strongly condemned the modern
dances and those novels of Iho present day which, ln tire iiauseoiiH un-
reserve of tho society novel, dealt
With sex problems.
Such dances and aueh books, Hie
preacher said, flnurished because society persuaded Itscif Ural immodesty
ls artistic, and that anything la per-
mlsslble which romovea monotony.
Ho asked, "Would an indecent dance,
suggestive of ev 11 and destructive of
modost., disgrace our civilization for
a moment If professed Christians
were to say, 'I wtll not allow my
daughter lo turn Into a Salome, even
although Herod were to give mc half
his kingdom?' "

left to his wife the sum of hair a ce: ,
or ono farthing, with llio direction
that it should lio sent to her by post
