Wins Big Prize For Successful Aeronautics
Confident He Will Soon Be Able to
Fly Many Kilometers With
Ease and Safety.
New York, Oct. 24.���The Herald
prirttfl lhe following Bpecial from Paris:
"M. Santos Dumont won the* Arch-
deacon cup yesterday on the field at
Bagatelle with his "Bird of Prey," a
flying machine. Not only did he succeed in covering the necessary _5
metres, hut In the opinion of every
competent witness summoned in council immediately after the flight, it wus
agreed that he left the ground well
over 50 metres from the point where
His flight was free, with sustained
balance. There was no hesitation.
The huge contrivance propelled by a
Co horsepower motor shot four or five
metres into the air and continued at
Uiis height until M. Santos Dumont cut
off the power and allowed the screw
lo stop; then the horizontal movement
was replaced by an inclined movement
ami, with a thud which smashed the
wheels and a portion of the lower
frame as well as the rudder, the "Bird
of Prey'* came to a Standstill, amid a
noise of voices.
The committee decided to ascertain
accurately the distance of the flight.
Some declared it was 100 metres and
more that had ben traversed, but the
more calm were of a mind that about
half that distance was the measure.
M. Santos Dumont said: 1 really don't
know why 1 did not go on. For au instant il seemed to me that the machine was making a sideward movement antl 1 foolishly cut off the gas.
This all arises from inexperience. After a few trials I am certain it should
be able to travel many kilometres. The
sensation was delightful. When tne
wheels left the ground- I felt Just as
though 1 were In a balloon propelled
hy some hidden force. I am absolutely confident that when I have made
a few alterations I shall be able to fly
about   wiih   comparative  ease.'
"The Dent sch-Archdeacon prize is
worth $10,000. It was promised to the
first aerial appliance which, unsiip-
ported by gas. would make a circle of
at (east one kilometre without coming
to (he ground.

Riotous Scenes of House of Commons
Repeated in London Police Court
Martyrs All.
London. Oct. 24.���Ten women suffragists who were arrested yesterday for
rioting within the precincts of the
house of commons-* we re arraigned In a
lionet* court today and were bound
over to keep the peace for six months.
Such a commonplace outcome of the
affair did not meet the view of the suf-
fragiBts, who apparently desired to assume the role of martyrs by being
committed to gaol, and when the magistrate announced his decision a great
uproar broke out in the room. Ultimately the women had to be removed
by force. Some of them were literally
thrown out among the crowds waiting
outside the building.
The shrieking women continued to
make a demonstration outside the police court i.ntil Miss Pankhurst, who
took a most prominent part in the disturbances in the ladles' gallery of the
house of commons in April was again
Arrested. When the disturbances had
somewhat subsided the police reassembled the defendants, who were Informed by the magistrate that they
must Immediately find sureties for
their good behavior or be imprisoned
for two months. The whole of the
women refused to enter into recognizances and  were  removed  to custody
Lumber Prices.
It is rejtorted from Vancouver that a
shortage of logs and another rise In
the price of lumber Is looked forward
to by loggers und millmen within a
short time. Logs are now selling at
$.).50 to J.O.BO per thousand feet, and
rough lumber Is sold at $14 n thousand.
Sawmill owners claim that the cost of
manufacturing lumber has greatly Increased during the past year, and consequently the margin between the
price of logs nnd the price of finished
lumber Is not sufficient to allow them
a reasonable profit on their operations.
Loggers, on the other hand, claim
that the rate of wages and the cost of
getting out logs has nlso increased
rapidly of late, and this, together with
the increased cost or camp supplies
and equipment, and the prospect of n
considerable log shortage during the
winter months, is urging them on to
demand a higher price for the logs.
Under sll these circumstances, another
advance in the price of lumber is looked for within a very short time.
Puts the Hartford Right.
Hartford, Conn., Oct. 24.���The suit
of the committee of nolicy holders
against the Hartford Life Insurance
company and the Security Trust company to secure an accounting of the
so-called "safety fund," is based entirely upon the alleged failure of tho
officers of these corporations, who are
named la the writ, to make a distribution of this fund. The Hartford Life
Insurance company was originally Incorporated in 1867, and though its
name waB changed from tbat under
which It was first Incorporated, it is
still doing nn active business in many
forms of insurance. The writ in the

Devoted Captain Refused
to Desert Cargo
Tendered Assistance, Skipper Would
Accept Only Stores to Replace
Damaged Food.
New York, Oct. 24.���Somewhere far
out In the Atlantic, off the Florida
coast, half a dozen men perished on
the alter house ot tbe waterlogged
Mritish schooner Sirocco, after struggling against wind and sea to reach a
Cuban port with their almost helpless
charge. Thu plight of the men Is due
in part to the philaatnroplc devotion of
their captain, who, when help was at
hand, chose to face death rather than
to abandon his ship and her cargo of
lumber. He declined an offer ot assistance from the steamer Parima,
which ran down on him last Sunday
when she was wallowing in the seas
COO miles east of Florida. The captain
asked only that he-he given supplies
to replace those which were ruined
when his ship filled with water. When
this request was granted, the captain
and his crew settled down in their
precarious quarters on the roof of the
after bouse and announced their determination to sail the Sirocco to Cuba.
The Sirocco sailed from St John,
N. B., on September 28, with a cargo
of lumber for Cardenas. All went well
until October 5. when off the coast of
Maryland she ran Into a fearful hurricane. Pounded and battered by wind
and sea the Sirocco was thrown about
like a cork, some of her seams ripped
open and she began to fill. Before the
storm had abated her hull was filled
with water, her decks awash and the
deck houses flooded.
All the stores which were In the
houses were ruined by the water and
the men were ln a sad plight when the
Parima hove In sight. With the aid
of provisions supplied by the Parima,
however, they expressed a hope to be
able to reach Cuba ln safety.
The Sirocco Is owned by Troop ft
Sons of St. John, N. B. The New York
agents are J. W. Elwell ft Co.
War on Railway "Leeches."
Chicago. Oct. 24.���-The meeting of the
American Railway association, which
began in Chicago today Is of far more
than usual importance and lt ls expected that the deliberations and con-
clualons of the meeting will give a
severe Jolt to some of the railroads of
the country that are persistently
"mean" in their dealings with other
roads. The association proposes to
adopt measures which will put railway
"leeches" out of business, and will impose such heavy penalties on "car
thieves" as to make It profitable for
them to quit their evil ways. A "rail- .
way leech" is ai railway which persistently refuses to purchase as much
equipment as lt needs and depends for
its traffic u|>on securing enough cars
from other lines at a per diem rate,
which Is unprofitable to the owners.
A "car thief" ls a railway which gets
possession of cars belonging to other
roads, runs them away, and uses them
for Its own purposes, regardless of the
wishes of tlie owners.

ground that Mr. Oelrtchs was not a resident of New York but of California.
Mr. Oelrtchs left the bulk of his estate

The more easterly of the twin sister
provinces so lately endowed with the
blessing uf autonomy has this week
Kiven evidence that nol only are tho
electoral iinahods of the grits moving
westward with startling rapidity but
the judicial methods also are becoming matters for interesting and humiliating reflection.
The "full" court as it is now called,
consisting of five judges, three of
whom are Liberals and two Conservatives, gave its decisions in two important cases which had been submitted to its jurisdiction and the history
of which will bear reviewing, the more
so. since the Liberal papers nf British
Columbia are apparently offering no
comment on the strange miscarriage of
In the rirsl of these the now notorious Sinclair, who accompanied Mober-
ly Into a lai mnth electoral district
lo conduct the election last fall aud
who, with Moberly, tailed to hold a
poll hut stuffed the ballot box whh
votes for the Liberal candidate, was
the central figure. Sinclair bad been
charged with conspiracy to defraud under a section of the criminal code of
Saskatchewan. He had been tried by
a jury and had been found guilty under the indictment. From this finding
appeal was taken to the full courl and
the finding, as stated by the Winnipeg
papers, is as unique as anything we
find fn the annals of Canadian court
The "full" court held that in order
to be guilty of conspiracy to defraud
some one must be robbed of some material things such as money or property.    That robbing a man or a nutn- |
ber of men, in this case a whole constituency of its right to vote, Is not
a crime or even a wrong under the
Sinclair therefore, though he confessed on the stand that he had held
no poll, that he had stuffed the ballot
box, lhat he had placed iu it only
votes for the grit candidate, walked
out of court a free man, carrying his
head high and is already preparing for
another job as a grit scavenger when
tin; next  elections shall take place.
The other case is even more Interesting for it does not carry so plainly
on its face the evidences of an inefficient judiciary, though to the lay mind
it is still painfully apparent that justice as Interpreted by the courts Is
often hard to understand. A petition
.setting forth the usual grounds for
protesting the election of Mr. Lamont
who sits for Prince Albert was heard.
The lawyers who appeared for Lament
pleaded that there was no law under
which an election protest could he
heard as such law had not been carried over Into the Saskatchewan constitution when the Autonomy Act was
passed. The judge (Scott) who heard
the cuse decided that in the event of
such a plea being held good there
could have been no legal election in
the new province and the whole matter was referred iu tho "full" court
which gave its decision on Monday.
Krom the despatches it would appear
that the 'lull" court dismissed the appeal against the return of Mr. Lamont
but we are not clearly informed as to
Whether the decision means lhal tho
Controverted Klections Act is intra
vires in Saskatchewan or otherwise.
One thing only appears to be certain
and that is that the seat of Mr. Lamont is safe. The technicalities of this
case will be wwtched with Interest as
upon It hang some sixteen other cases
or election protests in the new province,
Hut the most Interesting feature of
tlte case as if would seem to an outsider is the unanimity with which the
judges who are appointees of the grit
government stuck together in their decisions in both these cases and the
equally stolid front presented hy the
minority Conservative appointees. We
arc sure the confidence of the people
of Canada would he much more serene
If the alignment of these judges had
been somewhat different, say If a grit
hud heen on one side and a Conserva
tive on the other. There would then
have been some semblance of a judicial decision hut under (he present
circumstances It would appear that the
political virus for which the Liberal
parly Is now so noted had infested
even the bench.
We dare not go so tar as the Winnipeg papers and suggest to llie lull the
meaning or a "full" court nor dare wo
ask what would happened If the court
had uot been "full" but the very tact
that Prairie papers are permitted to
lake these liberties with the judiciary
Ih all loo sad a coin ment ary on the
dignity with which the judiciary should
respect its oil ice*.
Fortunately in British Columbia election protests are practically unknown
and while we hope it will be a long
day before we shall have occasion to
even suspect corruption lu our local
political campaigns we.are sure that
au election trial in ihis province would
never leave the Judiciary open to the
rude jibes ot the press aa ia the case
iu Saskatchewan.
il is not often that the Liberal or-
gans, in discussing politics, spice their
productions with tbe saving grace of
humor but readers of the local orgun
must have richly enjoyed the discussion of lhe London election scandals
In yesterday morning's paper, There
it was artfully represented that tho
fountain of corruption in the ordinary
election scandal is the betting man, or
sport, who, having put up his money
ou the result of the contest promptly
proceeds to debauch the electors lu
order to win his bets. When the organ
holds out no hope that a day will come
when elections will be conducted without bribery and corruption, and doea
not even expreas a wish that It might
be so, it betrays u familiarity with the
methods of the "sporting" element
ihat is hardly in keeping with the staid
and stolid dignity of an early morning
After warning the Globe that the
conviction of bribers and party hacks
would do but little good it proceeds
to show that the real power behind
the corrupt election Is "the dead game
sport" and it concludes its laughable
epistle by asking the Globe how "It
proposes to handle the sporting aspect
of elections?"
Since these remarks are made apropos of the London scandals we huve
new light thrown on the character of
the London people. Who would have
thought that thu little quiet, almost
model city down in the heart of Middlesex is the harbinger of a nest of
the gay, gallant and festive hallol-box
tinhorns who stake their fortune on
the turn of au election? And then just
to think of a man who has, say an
hundred dollars, up on the result of
an election gelling out and showering
his lives and tens among the poor
deluded elements in the constituency
that he may nol lose his hundred. The
"sporting element" in au election campaign is certainly a new factor. Only
the genius of a genuine sport could
have discovered it. Of course there
was really no responsibility on the
shoulders of the party leaders and the
machine politicians. They are not
sijorls. They always mean business.
Hul that large elusive element in society that constitutes the sportive
class. They are it. Yea! Verily! Wo
never knew our cotem. could he bo
The Week has a front page cartoon
showing an excellent woodcut of Premier MoBrlde and in the shadow an
outline ol Mephisto. The Week calls
the cartoon "Premier McBride as he Is
aud as he is painted by the Victoria
Times." The only excuse for the Insane rage of the Times and its vituperative treatment of the premier is
afforded in a parallel case. Once there
was a man named Hainan who had a
good Persian "graft" system In n high
state of development. He had tho
plaudits or the people and almost all
that heart could wish but "What does
all this avail me," he asked, "so long
us lhat man Mordecai sits in the king's
gate?" Let us see! That would place
the Times about 4000 years behind thu
present date, wouldn't It?
It ls not very gentlemanly ror the
grit organs to assert that lhe Conservative papers are charging them with
the failure of the premier's Journey (o
Ottawa. In the first place the premier's journey was not a failure, In
fact the very reverse. The provlnco
Is belter off under the present arrangement thnn It ever was, with an
appeal to higher authority still to
come. That Is what ls hurling tho
grit papers and, reading them from
Victoria to Cranbrook, one cannot but
feel thai In their disappointment and
rage they are nol making good cnpitt-J
for (heir cause.
You can never tell what tho silent
man knows, but it's easy to find out
what the talkative man doesn't know.

company last evening, when the "Mas-
