Lumberman Has His Broken  Limbs
and Neck Mended With Golden
Joints.
A Canadian lumberman named
Theodore W. Peters, who is now on
a visit to Washington, has been given
the sobriquet of "The Man of Gold,"
because several pounds of that precious metal have been substituted for
bones in various parts of Tils body.
As the result of an accident on the
St. Lawrence River some years ago,
when he fell 250 feet in the effort
to save a companion, Peters had the
bones of both legs and arms and his
neck broken, while all his ribs were
so badly shattered that they had to
be entirely replaced by new ribs of
gold.

The fire ls believed to have been
due to an overheated kiln and was
not discovered until it had gained
considerable headway, owing to the
fact that these kilns are locked up
while the lumber ls ln the process
of drying. The general alarm was
sounded at 3:30 in the afternoon
and in a few minutes all employees
of the mill were pressed into service. At 4:15 the fire had gained
such headway that aid was sought
from the local fire department and
Chief Watson and his men were
soon on the scene. Great credit for
bis efficiency in handling the situation is given the fire chief by ot-
fli ials of the company.
The fire on Monday was the first
serloui one that the company has
had since the plant was put ln operation in 1908. It was demonstrated that their fire fighting equipment
was splendid and made It easy for
the firemen to fight the flames, The
company had all the hose that was
sidered a marvel of modern surgery.

TRESPASSERS
ARE FINED
Two Hindoos, by name Nagina
Singh and Mehru Singh, were charged by Istmr Singh, before police magistrate McKee, on Friday, with assaulting tbe said Ishar Singh by hitting liIni with some blunt instrument,
breaking his jaw and doing him
grevlous bodily barm. The assault
is supposed to have taken place in
Delta on or about September 2.
Mr, ,1. P, Hampton Hole appeared
us counsel for the prosecution, and
Mr. I.eon I.adner for tho defendants.
with Mr, L, J. Rickotts as Interpreter. The defendants through their
counsel elected to be tried under the
jurisdiction   of  the  police  court.
Ishar Singh, the plaintiff, gave
evidence that on or about September 2. he came to Ladner from Eraser Mills In company with Mehru
Singh and Nagina Singh, the defendants. Tbey went first to Colbecl;
and then walked from there to Mehru
Singh's house on Paterson's farm,
Delta. When there he had boon
asked by Mehru Singh to lend him
$10, which he had refused. A quarrel had ensued and Nagina Singh bid
hit him under the chin with a stick,
and Mehru Singh had hit hira on fie
right cheek, after which the pHIntiff
declares he fell down unconscious.
Later he found himself ln Mehru
Singh's house, which he left two days
later, going to New Westminster,
where he saw Dr. Manchester, who
told him his jaw was broken. He
was in the hospital for four weeks.
Both the defendants gave evidence
to the effect that they had not assaulted the plaintiff. Mr. A. D.
Paterson testified that Mehru Singh,
one of the defendants, had worked
for him for six years, and that he
was honest, sober and trustworthy.
In summing up, Magistrate McKee
said that he did not consider the evidence of the prosecution sufficient to
warrant a conviction, and dismissed
the case.
Mr,  Fred Parmlter Loses Eye in a
Shooting Accident, But Is Now
Doing  Well.
Early on Sunday morning, Mr.
Fred Parmiter, of Ladner, formerly
of Annacis Island, a well-known
farmer, was accidentally shot by Ills
nephew, Bert Arthur, while both
were out shooting.
It appears that Mr. Parmiter and
his nephew were out hunting near
��� ho former's farm at the head of the
Sleigh road, when Bert Arthur saw
;i flock of birds, and not noticing
that his uncle was in range, shot
in his direction^ To his dismay he
found that at least of tho pellets had
accidentally struck his uncle in tlie
face.
Without any delay the wounded
man was taken to I.adner In an automobile, and from there to the Burrard  Sanitarium  in  Vancouver.
The result of the unfortunate accident was that Mr. Parmiter has
lost an eye. He was seen at tbe
Burrard Sanitarium, Vancouver, on
Thursday by Dr. King, who states
that he is now getting on all right,
considering the circumstances.

Mr. J. S. Terry, poultry Instructor
of the live stock branch of the department of agriculture, recommends
everyone who has poultry not to part
with them, in view of the probable
high price of eggs this winter. The
season has been an abnormally bad
one for this industry in the East,
where there is roughly a forty per,
cent, shortage In chickens, arid practically no reserve of eggs ln cold
storage. The cause for this seems to
have been the cold wintry weather
which obtained through the months
of April and May and prevented any
satisfactory results from hatching
previous to the first of June. At the
present time the majority of the eggs
coming In here are from Nebraska
Bnd the Southern States, most of the
Callfornian eggs finding their way
to San Francisco and New York, and
the surplus to Philadelphia, As corroborative evidence of the shrinkage
ln poultry In the Eastern States, he
states that at the Toronto exhibition
the exhibits fell short, in the poultry
section, by two-thirds, of those ot
the previous year, and in most of the
classes there was a notable absence
of both size and quality. Mr. Terry
remarked that a recent visit to Duncan and the Cowichan district satisfied him that steady progress is being
made In the poultry industry of that
section sixteen new settlers became
members of the local creamery In
one month recently.

NEW   WESTMINSTER  MARKET.
There was a large attendance at
tho New Westminster market on
Frldav, nnd with the prospect of
Thanksgiving week, a big supply of
poultry was tho predominate feature.
A number of crates or turkeys were
required, to run about fifteen to j in evidence, selling at from 32 cents
twenty lines and each of these had | to 36 cents per lb. live weigttj,
plenty of pressure. PHte poles,; chickens wore going at $b to siu
axes, and other tools were In
abundance, there were plenty of men

(Prom The British Columbian.)
Senior Provincial Constable Gamon
returned this morning from Mission
City where he haB been in charge
of the man-hunt after Cy McLaughlin, who murdered three people on
Niromen Island, October 13.
There  is  a  Btrong  possibility,  in
the opinion of Mr. Gamon, that tho
hunted man has either died from the
wound Indicted by a 4 4-callbre Colt
revolver  during the  shooting  affray
with O'Neill, who was killed, or that
he  has  committed   suicide.      Otherwise be thinks the posse of provincial   police   constables   would   have
i been  able  to get some trace of the
I murderer.      Mr.  Gamon   was   fori oil
|to return to the local office without
I having  been  rewarded  for hls  vigilance by  finding a single clue that
mlirbt lead to the slayer's arrest.
I     Provincial  police    from    Mission.
Yale,  North  Bond,  Port Moody and
Vancouver are still  keeping a close
guard   on   all   the   trails   and   roads
by  which  it  would  be  possible  for
McLaughlin   to     make   bis     escape.
I McLaughlin could not possibly have
gotten away from the officers as be
does  not   know  tho  trails  or   roads
loading back Into tho bills. Without
this knowledge. It Is pointed out by
those   who   are  connected   with   the
Country, McLaughlin could not hive
made bis get-away.
Until some clue as to the whereabouts of the murderer has lvon
found, or in event of his death, tho
body discovered, a strict search **ill
be maintained, by the provincial police authorities, states Mr. Gamon.
Mrs. McLaughlin, the half-breed
wife of the murderer, whose grandmother and father were slajin In
the affray, does not seem to be seriously concerned in the hunt, and
doeB not attempt to conceal her satisfaction that no trace of her husband can be found.
The Causes Responsible for    Shortage of the  Canadian
Supply.
Professor W. T. MacDonald. the
provincial live stock commissioner, in
a conversation today confirmed the
statement as to the shortage of live
stock in the United Kingdom, that
has been noted recently in these columns. Leaving out the Argentine
nnd Australia, this shortage is apparent, he says, over the whole world,
especially in the number of beef cattle, and in this his opinion had been
confirmed by Mr. D. O. Lively, the
general manager of the Union Stockyards at Portland, with whom he has
been talking the question over.
The breaking up of the big ranches
in the western states of America and
in the wstern provinces of Canada.
is largely responsible for this deficiency in the meat supply. The stock
ls dispersed and then comes the pioneer farmer, who with the virgin soil
at his disposal, thinks only for some
years of grain crops. In time he
will awaken to the necessity of starting the keeping of stock if his land
is to be kept in good condition, but
meantime a shortage intervenes.
Another cause which lt is reasonable to assume bears on this matter
Is the enormously increased consumption of meat among classes of people
who, at any rate, in Europe, fifty
years ago, could not afford it in anything like the quantity which the
growing prosperity and cheaper prices
bave enabled them to of late years.
The laborer in England, for instance,
up to the seventies, rarely ate
butcher's meat, but made bread and
cheese and bacon supply his needs.
Since theu, however, he has gradually improved his mode of livlng
and now eats meat twice" a day, and
takes canned meat out for consumption at his midday meal. Among all
classes there has been an increase
in the demand for meat, and this,
if it does not cause, will at any rate
emphasize the shortage in the supply.
Already here in the West the price
of meat is becoming a serious matter
to the households of men dependent
on fixed salaries. The working men
and the mechanic are paid sufficiently high wages not to feerthe pinch,
but it Is being felt with apprehension by thoBe engaged in clerical
work, and they are casting about to
see how economy may be effected
in other directions to ensure the
ability to procure this necessary article of food In northern climates.
Eventually the equilibrium of supply and demand will no doubt be reestablished by tbe introduction of
stock on to the thousands of small
farms at present without thorn, but
���hat time has not yet arrived and
the situation is sufficiently uncomfortable for the public.

PAVILION WIPED OUT.
CORVALLIS, Ore., Oct. 24.���The
stock judging pavilion of the Oregon
Agricultural college is today a mass

completely destroyed the structure
The loss ls estimated at between
$71)00 and $8000. The origin of tbe
fire is not known.

C.  N.  R.  Rumored  to  Have  Abandoned  English   Bluff  as   Ferry
Terminal Point.
The death occurred at East Langley on Oct. 9, 1912. of Henry Fredrick Harris, aged seventy-three
years. He leaves to mourn
the loss cf a kind husband and loving father, a widow, four sons and
one daughter. Th" late Mr. Harris
was born in Somerset. Bristol, coming to Nova Scotia 48 years ago. He
was manager in the mines for some
years, later cominp to R. C. In '83.
He settled In Langley taking up
farming. He was an active
politician, served as councillor for
many years, and also as school trustee. Rev. A. Dunn, an old time
friend, attended the funeral service
and he was assisted by Rev. Mr.
Wilson. A short service was hold
from the house, thence to the
Methodist church, Sperling whore
the service was preached by Rev. A.
Dunn. He referred to tho many fine
qualities of the old gentleman, who
was always ready to lond a helping
hand in Ricknoss or distress. The
remains were Interred in tho Fort
Langley cemetery. Tho pall bearers,
who wore old time friends of the
deceased, were: John McDonald. New
Westminster:: W. Wooley, Vancouver; John Skea. P. Spence and C.
Williams. Many beautiful floral tributes were placed on the bipr, showing the respect with which the deceased was held by a large circle of
friends and relatives.
An announcement was made in
Vancouver on Monday, which is of
particular interest to Ladner and
Delta. The report is to the effect
that, with the approval of the provincial government, the Canadian
Northern will begin the operation
of a car ferry service between Woodward's Slough, which is four miles
this aide of Steveston, and Sidney,
which is sixteen miles from Victoria.

agreement with the government���ls
the mainland terminal. This terminal would, therefore, be abandoned If the proposed change is made.
At present the Great Northern
railroad maintains a car ferry service between New Westminster and
Sidney. According to the Vancouver report the C. N. R. bas made a
working agreement with the Great
Northern to use Sidney as a port of
entry through which access to Victoria wlli be obtained by a working
agreement with the Victoria and Sidney railroad.
It is generally believed that the
C. N. lt. made large purchases of
land in the vicinity of tho Slouc.ii

should this new plan, as briefly
summarized, re through, II cannot
help being of considerable advantage
to i.miner and Delta Municipality,
Details of the whole scheme have yet
to be officially announced, but If
Woodward's Slough is made a terminal point of the C. N R.i is stated,
It will, apparently. In the first place,
shorten the journey to Victoria. In
the second place it should be the
moans of accelerating a more direct
route to Vancouver from Ladner. by
the B. C, E. R., or some other railway line, as It may be assumed that
if Woodward's is made a teriflinah
there will be no difficulty about a
boat running there from Ladner.
It ls understood that  the new arrangement was negotiated during Sir
Donald   Maun's   recent   visit   to
toria.
(HOP  CONDITIONS.
Department   Issues   Bulletin   Detailing Situation  Up Till September  30.
OTTAWA. Oct. 16.���A bulletin
issued today by the Census and Statistics Office covers the crop conditions in Canada for the month ended September 30 It states that during this month disastrously wet weather continued to prevail over most
parts of Canada, especially over the
provinces of Quebec, Ontario and
Manitoba. At September 30 large
areas of grain, both in the East and
West, were still either uncut or
were exposed to the wet in stook.
Much damage has been caused by
sprouting and in the Northwest provinces second growth has iu numerous instances cauaed uneven ripening and consequent lowering of
grade. Frosts during September
in those provinces did some damage
but as a rule only late sown crops
Including flax, were seriously affected. In parts of Southern Ontario the ground ls so wet that many
farmers have abandoned the sowing
of fall wheat for next year.
The estimates of yield published
a month ago could only be regarded
as of preliminary value, because In
consequence of the bad weather and
late season harvesting operations
had made so little progress.
The new estimates of yield obtained from correspondents at the
end of September confirm generally the previous estimates for moat
of the areas of grain were still un-
harvested, it Is feared that the final
estimates, after completion of the
threshing, may turn out lower than
the figures now given.
For spring wheat the estimated
production is 188,810,600 bushels
as compared with 189,904,500
bushels last year. For fall wheat
the estimate is 16,868,700 bushels
compared with 26,014,000 bushels
'ast year, the total estimated wheat
production being therefore 205,685,-
300 bushels as compared with 215,-
918.500 bushels In 1911, a decrease
of 5 per cent. The yield per acre Is
21.08 bushels for all wheat as
against 20.77 bushels last year**
Oats show a total production of
381,502,000 buBhels compared
with 348,585,600 bushels last year,
the yield per acre being 41.39 bushels compared with 37.75. Barley is
estimated to yield a total of 43,-
895,000 bushels compared with 40,-
631,000 bushels last year, the yield
per acre being 31 bushels against
28.94. The total production of
rye Is 3,086.600 bushels against 2.-
668,800 bushels in 1911, the yields
per acre being respectively 20.75 and
17.51 bushels. Of oats, barley and
rye increases a total production as
compared with last year represent
percentages ot 9, 8 and 15. The estimated production of peas Is 4,-
202,400 bushels, of beans 4,106,800
bushels, of ^buckwheat 10,924,100
bushels, of flaxseed 21,143,400 bushels, of mixed grains 17,940.900
bushels and of corn for husking 14,-
218.400 bushels.
The average quality of these crops
at harvest time, measured upon a
per cent, basis of 100 as representing grain well headed, well tilled,
well saved and unaffected to any
appreciable extent by frost, rust,
smut, etc, is as follows: Spring
Wheat 83.70, oats 86.Ol. barley
84.48, rye, 80.82, peas 66.41, beans
68.81, buckwheat 80.87, mixed
grains 90.59. tlaxseed 83.86 and corn
for husking 71.92 per cent. Of these
crops wheat, oats, barley and Max-
seed are above, while peas, beans
and corn for husking are below tbe
n\erase quality for either of the
two previous years. Rye is slightly below the average. Flax is well
above the quality of both 1911 (75
per cent.)  and  1910  (7:!  per cent i.
Hoo' crops continue to show excellent figures as representing average
condition during growth, The
highest are potatoes 90.12 per cent.,
and the lowest corn for fodder i*o.63

B. O. HATCHERIES.
Eggs Wore  First Taken From Flsh
Caught  by the Indians  for
Voo��' Supplies.
(From The British Columbian.)
Recent reports from the Dominion
ana provincial fishery departments
Indicate! that the salmon hatcheries
:.re unnsnally well stocked with
eggs for an ofi year. The extreme
vigilance of the officials in both
'itire.i'is has been largely responsible
for this ii.crease ln the supply oi
sa'mon egg? as compared with four
years ar..
Mr 1*. ll. Cunningham, chief inspector ol Dominion fisheries for
Britisil Columbia, Kates thai
sflawulng operations at Pemberton
lake hatchery ceased on Sept. 81,
25,000,00- sockeye eggs having
been secured for the establishment.
This large collection is attributed
to the arrangements made between
the
uepiu
: ments   of    Indian   Affai
rs
anil Fisheries whereby a special officer was located at Pemberton to
supervise the catching of parent, fish
when on their way to spawn by Indians who require a large quantity
for winter food supply.
To obviate such a drain on spawning runs; arrangements were made
under which the fish were banded
over to the Indians after the eggs
had been taken from them. Under
the supervision of Mr. John Grant
of this city, who was appointed for
that purpose, the results show that
this duty  has  been  well  performed.
The butchery at Lakels lake on
the Skeena river ls filled to capacity.
Two hatcheries, one at Babine lake,
and the other at Stuart lake are
both full. There are over 16,000,-
tllio of sockeye eggs in these two
hatcheries alone ut the present
time.
It Is also worthy of note that in
addition to these precautions on the
part ef the Dominion and provincial
.liberies departments, a large number of salmon reached their natural
spawning grounds where they reproduced The fact that 'fishing regulations were well enforced, and the
channel from Steveston to the actual
rr.OUth of the river kept clear of
nets of any kind, no doubt enabled
a Lir_rc number of sockeye salmon
to reach the spawning grounds that
otherwise would  have been caught.
According to the Statement of Mr.
John I' Babcock, inspector of the
provincial department of fisheries,
the provincial hatcheries are also
Well stocked considering the fact
that this is an off year. He states
that more sockeye salmon have
reached their spawning grounds this
year than in any other off year for
the past  ten  years.
Mr. Babcock declares that this
lar^e increase in tbe supply of eggs
indicate- that a largo run will come
in four years time-, when the salmon
batched from this year's eggs return to the spawning grounds.
HOCKEY ON THE COST.
The Teams to Represent New West-'
minster, Victoria and Vancouver,
It is stated that with one exception
New Westminster will be represented by the same team this season that
captured the Paterson Cup and the
P.C.H.A. championship last season.
McLean is the only player who will
be missing from the lineup of the
Royals wheu the season sets in early
in December. He has not been tendered a contract yet and may decide
to remain in. the East.
Vancouver may be up against it
for players this season unless Lester
Patrick succeeds in securing a couple
of Eastern players. Pltre may re-
clace Lalonde, but it !e doubtful
whether Oriffis and Phillips will
turn out, although it is just possible
the former nay consent to turn out.
Harris has been out of the city, but
he will probably be on hand for the
first practice. Kerr, the former Ottawa player, will fill one of the va-
cancies on the team, while Kendall.!
tho Ottawa amateur, is also slated for
a berth on the local team.
Victoria has only a couple of vacancies to fill. Poulin may remain
in the East, but Lindsay has been
signed   and   will   report  next   month.
The roster of the ('oast clubs follow:
Vancouver���Parr, F. Patrick, Grif-
lis,   Kerr,  Harris.
New Westminster���Lehman, Johnson, llvland, McDonald, Gardner,
Mullen.
Victoria���Lindsay, L. Patrick, W.
Smaill, Dunderdale, Smith, Rows.
Even though a hockey commission
is formed and the clubs agree to leave
players in other leagues alone, the
Coast magnates may have their troubles rounding out their teams. Frank
Patrick wants a couple of good men
for the Vancouver team, while Victoria is looking for a forward. As
the majority of Eastern players are
already signed up, it is just possible
that some amateurs from the East
may be pressed into service.

States He Was Absolutely Pledged to
Not Iii ng Being Done Without
Referendum.
OTTAWA, Oct. 22.���The Hon. F.
D. Monk is no longer minister of
public works. The Prime Minister
yesterday at noon drove out to Government House and place the minister's resignation in the hands of His
Royal Highness. The resignation was
duly accepted.
Mr. George H. Perley, minister
without portfolio, who was so successful and efficient in the summer
as acting Prime Minister, will administer the department of public works
until Mr. Monk's successor is appointed. Mr. Perley is not altogether new to the department, as he
has repeatedly adminlsted lt during
Mr. Monk's absence. Towards the
end of last session Mr. Perley found
himself acting minister, with the
task of putting the supplementary
estimates of the department through
council. He mastered the details so
as to be able to explain tbem to his
colleagues with a rapidity that astonished the officers of the department.
The department will shortly have a
new French-Canadian minister as its
head.
Mr. Monk spent the earlier portion
of the day in the finishing up of his
desk, .then bidding good-bye to the
officers of his department. He left
for Montreal by the afternoon train,
and will go to Atlantic City for a
rest.
His Position.
Before leaving he made the following statement'
"1 was absolutely pledged that
not bine of such a character as was
contemplated with regard to the
naval question would he done without consulting the people, so that
even if it bad been somewhat more
urgent, st'll we would have had to
claim for the people the right to ex-
press their opinion. I do not think
that the government would have had
to dl ���'.::��� li 'I' <r; "i ��� ;: 'Oblom a'.lu
then throw the responsibility upo"h
the people, but it seems to me that
the Prime Minister, with the information obtained in England, could lay
tho proposals before parliament,
then have adjourned for five weeks
and permit the people to'pronounce
on such a serious matter.
"I felt I had no other course open,
and to waive my right to keep my
promise to the people would have
been a betrayal of their truBt In me.
In every part of the country we abide
by the judgment of the majority of
the people. We now, therefore, place
the solution jf tho problem In the
hands of the eight other provinces,
but I believe, for my part, that If the
matter had been carefully expounded
in Quebec, the verdict would not have
differed materially from that of the
other provinces. As far as being of
assistance to the Mother Country,
such a verdict rendered without an
election would have been of far more
weight and influence than the decision of the government and the party
in parliament. My own belief is tbat
wben such a problem is set before
tiie people and not trammelled by
political considerations their judgment is invariably right."
His   Successor.
The name of Louis ('oderre, Conservative member for Hochelaga, is
being mentioned in connection with |
tbe Cabinet vacancy. He is a lawyer
of considerable ability and popular
witb tlie rank and file of the party.
It is believed that he would have no
difficulty in carrying the constituency.

dairy cattle ever seen in the East,
the Colony Farm, Mount Coquitlam,
won ,a number of first prizes and
championships at the Dominion Exhibition, held last month at Ottawa
Both in horses and cattle the entries
were larger than usiial and the grade
of animals much superior to previous
years. The Colony Farm were,
therefore, up against some of the
best stock ever exhibited at the Ottawa exhibition, and tiiei:* success
With British CoVumbia live stock ls
all the more a source of gratification. From the report of the Dominion exhibition In the Canadian
Farmer, the following facts were
gleaned:

two-year-olds, Cralgmore Peer won
first money for the Colony Farm.
Hrlgham Radiant also won the stallion championship, while the female
championship was won by the Colony

showing of Clydesdales, and in this
class the Colony Form made an
excellent display. In aged stallions,

yeld mares, Colony Farm won first,
second and fourth with their mares
Nerissa and Peggy Pride, both by
the renowned Baron's Pride and Lady
('edrie, Nerissa also taking the female championship, in three-year-
olds Colony Farm won first and
second on Opal and Melita. In two-
year-old fillies, Colony Lady Beg, by
ltoyal Favorite, secured premier
honors. Colony Farm also won in
three-year-old fillies with City Lady.
In two-year-old shires, the farm
'<*on first, second nnd third, while
in three-year-old fillies tbey also won
first  and second.
Championships.
As regards Clydesdale championships, the Colony Farm were particularly successful. The female championship open class was won by Nerissa, and the Canadian bred championship by City Lady, while the best
team sired by Clydesdale.stallion was
secured by Nerissa and Peggy Pride,
while the former was also a winner
in the single class.
Dairy Cattle.
The Holstelns shown by Colony
Farm  were  of  superior   grade   and
secured a number of prizes. In aged
bulls, Mercena Vale won second and
in two-year-olds, Colony Farm was
first. In yearling bulls Colony Farm
took second. The aged cows class
was won by Madam Posch; in three-
year-olds, Colony 1-arm also took
third and fourth. In two-year-olds,
the farm secured first and fifth, and

THE DISMISSAL OF A MATE.
Samson   Enquiry   Opens���Mr.    Bayfield  on   Stand���Chnrgc of
Incompetence.
c From  the  British Columbian.)
On Friday the Commissioner,
lion. W. Norman Bole, K.C., investigating circumstances in connection
with the dismissal or Mate Bojd from
the anagboat 'oam3on, heard the
testimony of the first witness Mr.
Ray field, ol Vancouver, superinten-
*d��_n1 of dredges, the official who
conducted an investigation of the
charges made; against Mr. Boyd by
Capt..  Young.
Sapt. Bayfield maintains that he
���did not. discharge Mr. Boyd at all,
but after a conference participated
in by himself, Capt. Young and Mr.
Boyd on August 10, on tha Samson,
he concluded that under the circumstances it would be in the interest
of his department to transfer Mr.
Boyd to the command of a tug boat,
���which h* stated he hacr ordered into
effect but which change Mr. Hovel
had refused to accept.
The charges against the mate as
revealed in correspondence offered
In evidence between Capt. Young and
Supt. Bayfield, were that lie was incompetent for the reason that he
could nol lake a turn at the wheel
and thai he was of no assistance io
Mr. Turner in surveying. These
charges witness admitted had not
teen gone Into by aimself, and ha
tlic' nol know whether or not thoy
wc re co: ret t, bul be gtated thai he
had come to his decision to transfer Boyd because ol Impertinent remarks Which Male* lloyd had made
to Capl. Young in his presence,
which he thought under ordinary circumstances were sufficient grounds
for discharging a man.
Mr. Bayfield went further and
admitted that he had stated to Mr.
Bovd that owing to the circuni-
���staJiceB (referring to the fact that
Mr. Boyd had informed against
���Capt. Young) it would not be possible for him to remain on the ship,
but he maintained that this fact did
not inlluence him in the least in the
disposition of the case of Mr,
Boyd.
Mr. J .D. Taylor, M.P., who questioned the witness, through His
Honor the Commissioner, made it
plain during the course of his cross-
examination that he was attempting
to determine if it was true that the
reasons .'lBcribed for the dismissal of
Mate Boyd were "faked" and that
the real cause was that he had informed against Capt. Youvig.
After it had been proven that
Superintendent Bayfield had no
proof of Mr. Boyd's incompetency,
he reiterated his statement tbat he
bad taken the action he did because
of Mr. Boyd's impertinence to Capt.
Young. His Honor then asked him
W lt were not true that the charge
against the ��� man was Incompetence,
instead ot lack of discpline, arid he
admitted tbat it was. The letters
which he offered in evidence showed
that Mate Boyd had not accepted the
command of the tug boat, stating
that he could not do so under the
conditions Imposed. Following that,
it seems that Mr. Boyd was ordered
ashore from thc Samson, although
Mr. Bayfield testified that bo know
nothing of this.
Mr. Taylor asked the witness If
he fcu.ew tho nature of the report
which Mr.  Boyd had made to him-
aeU.
Air.. BayNeld replied that he did
not fcnow but he believed that he
accused Capt. Young of looting
stores of the vessel. Mr. Taylor then
usked him if he thought that it was
a proper time to dismiss a man who
waa before his department at that
time with the charge. Mr. Bayfield
stated that lie had heard that Mr.
���Wilson's report was to the effect
that lie had exonerated Capt. Young.
He did not know whore he had got
the Information.
Mr. Taylor: "Would you be surprised to know that ('apt. Young
-ie* ������-',' been entirely exonerated?"
The Witness said that he would be
surprised.
Mr. Taylor: "Did you not discuss
with Capt. Murdock or Mr. William
YotRnj; of Ottawa, and. receive advice from his regarding this matter?" "Witness stated that although
his memory was not bad he did not
remember any discussion of this
Character.
Mr .Taylor brought out the point
tbat until Aug. 5 Mr. Hoyd had been
working tor IE months as mate of
the boat nnd that up to that time
Capl. Young or Superintendent Bay-
Held bad known no reason for dls-
*char;;ing him.
In the afternoon on resuming the
hearing the only testimony that was
drawn from .Mr. Bayfield was In te-
���gnrci lo the conversation In the :*ai'-
tain'x room, when Mr. Bayfield came
���hoard to tnke up tha charges which
Ir'd I-"." made against Mate Boyci.
Mr. Taylor, M.P,, who previously
rjuesliuncd this witness pointed out|
"���"iii tl"* evidence given by Mr. Ujay-
Beld relating to this conversation
Hhowi-d how one word had led to
another, finally resulting in the
charge of Impertinence which Mr.
Bayfield said was sufficient In itself
to discharge Mate Hoyd.
Ci*pl.   Young,   under   oath,   stated
thai   Mr. Hoyd had been a moat Incompetent   man,   bul   when     pressed
Tor specific charges he usually answered,   "Oh   well,   I   can't   remember
m).'. of the little d"tn'ls," or words to
thai  effect  each  time he was questioned.     Once   Capt.   Young     stale!
Shat  Mate  Boyd, because of bis bad
ght, when  he did not have bis
Rlawses with him, nearly ran directly
i  F;*-Ii  nets, und  thai   were it not
the fael thai he rushed on decs
atvi toolj charge of the wheel the net
would probably have neen destroyed.
* Do you know of any time that he
���.,';.   did   run  into  a  net?"     Mr.
Tn-.: n asked. Witness answared no;
thai he had always got there !���* time
to i r.vent him.
"While you were at tbe wheel did
>*f>'i ever run into a net?" was then
-ask oi. him.
������Hundreds of them," he replied
r-ub-Viy, "you can't help it," he;
sutrtwl.
Capl.  Young testified    that    Mr.
Boyd had been promoted by himseii
from deckhand to mate, in which
capacity he had served about thirteen months. However, shortly after
ho had been made mate he hud dis
covered that Mr. Boyd was not a
suitable officer. Mr. Boyd Loolr no
interest in the work. "Mr. Boyd,
you must take a deeper Interest in
the work," he had told him. The
mate's reply was always that he was
just staying there until he cou'd get
\ better job.
The numerous charges that were
made against Capt. Young were then
read to him and he was asked in
each instance if that specific matter
had ever been brought to his attention and bo answered no, except ln
the case of a shortage of pat."..
which bad been borrowed from an
other government department, and
ho said that this was a common occurrence.
On being questioned by Mr. Taylor, Capt. Young stated that he had
first heard who had made the
charges against him when Mr. Wilson, who made the investigation,
pointed out Mr. Doyrt and said that
there was the man who made them.
Dp to this time, he stated, he had
never made a charge against him to
Mr. Bayfield for incompetence or
anything else.
Upon being further questioned
('apt. Young stated that he regarded
a man who would go above himself
and tin' next superior officer���meaning Mr. Bayfield���to make snen
charges as Mr. Boyd had. as a aang-
e :'ous man and that this was sufficient cause for him to be discharge 1.
He replied, on being queried, that he
knew of nothing in the regulations
that did not permit him to do as he-
had clone. Mr. Taylor then asked
him, if, in his judgment, it would be
a proper thing for one who has
charges to make against a superior
officer to go that officer to tell him
about the charges. Capt. Young did
not answer the question.
On a question by Mr. Taylor, Cape.
Young said that to the best of his
ability he did not remember going
Into Vancouver and talking over the
Boyd case with Mr. Bayfield. "I?
you went there specifically for the
purpose of talking over this matter
and engaged in a long conversation
regarding it, don't you think you
would remember?" witness was
asked. Again he said he could not
remember such a conversation. Mr.
Taylor then asked him if he would
not be surprised if he brou<*i <"���
ness who happened to be In the office when this conversation t.._
place and who had heard it all. Ca.ii.
Young reiterated that it might have
occurred, but that he could not recall it.

SEATTLE, Oct. 24.���Continued
car shortage, while causing much embarrassment to lumbermen, comes at
an opportune time, If it must come,
as stated by dealers Tuesday In summing up the present lumber movement, since it is between seasons and
the stringency can be better borne at
this time than at any other. The
shortage is more pronounced on Canadian lines than any other, lt was
stated, although there has been difficulty in securing prompt filling of car
orders on American transcontinental
lines. Co-operating under any other
conditions than a general pressure for
cars, the big lines could send reinforcements. The demand for traffic
of both crops and lumber, however,
has compelled each line to look out
for itself.
