meeting yesterday afternoon, "I do
not think the council would be justified in submitting a money by-law for

To Keep Frenchmen From Winning
King  Edward Cup for Third
and Last Time.
LONDON, June 19.���Owing to
the counter attraction of "Gold Cup
Day" at Ascot, the International -
Horse Show, which began today had | t
to get along without royalty for the
time being, but there Was a big
K:*.thering of society people and admirers of horse flesh when the Earl
of Lonsdale declared the show officially open. The earl, who is president of the horse show committee,
was accompanied by Alfred G. Van-
derbilt and Judge Moore of New
York,   who   are  American  directors.
This year's entry beats all records, and the prizes to be competed
for during the next ten days amount
to $60,000. More than $50,000 has
been spent on decorations, and tbe
big enclosure, known as Olympia, is
a veritable bower of roses. As usual
tbe military jumping competitions
will provide plenty of excitement, the
British officers being opposed by-
contingents from the United States,
Canada, France, Germany, Russia,
Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Holland,
Japan, Norway, Sweden, Spain, Austria and Denmark.
Tbe King Edward VII gold cup
and the King George V gold cup are
the most coveted trophies, the Britishers being especially desirous of
preventing France from winning
the former, for, having won it twice
already, it would then become the
absolute property of the Frenchmen.
The Canadian challenge cup and the
Duke of Connaught's cup (Britishers only!, also will be competed for.
American entries are numerous in
the various classes for coach, carriage, harness, hunting horses, Judge
Moore alone having brought over a
string of forty. Vanderbilt has his
famous coaching horses, and as usual he will make a bid for the coaching Marathon, in which Moore, Lord
Lonsdale and other enthusiasts will
compete. A novel feature of this
year's show is the introduction of
displays of Arab riding given by fifteen desert chieftains on their own
Arab steeds. The chiefs, all of
high rank, are not performers, but

emphatic blows at tbe board of county commissioners as now constituted,
going so far as to urge in positive
and drastic terms that Commissioner
Knudsen resign from the body for
his proved connection with the suspicious transactions in the paving of
portions of the North Trunk road,
and failing to do so, that the machinery of the recall be placed in motion. President McKenzie is also
urged ta resign, not for any alleged
or supposed dishonesty, but because
of the two-man alliance of Hamilton

board is futile and should terminate.

British Columbia possesses one of
the few great timber areas of the
world. While the countries of it"e
Far East have lost all the timbei
they ever had. while European na-|
lions are resorting to the most Intensive methods possible to secure
continuity of stand and a certainty
of yield and are planting trees by
hand over great areas to ensure
crops in the future; while Eastern
Canada and the New England States
are clamoring for lumber and viewing with alarm the rapidly diminishing supplies in their country,
British Columbia has a vast area of
ovpr fifi minion nerps of tlmberlani-
*which should average, according to
estimates of experts, at least one
hundred board feet per acre per a-i-
uuni, or a total of 6 1-- billion feet.
This would return to the Government over 6 1-2 million dollars evers
year. The province is the possessor
ot a glorious heritage of over 300
billion feet of timber, which is quite
half of all that standing in the Dominion at the present time. At the
present rate of cutting, the loggers
Ol the province are taking annually
only one-fifth of the amount whicn
is added by Ihe natural processes of

their existence to the forest resource.

mlllmen, transport men, builders,
and all those who use wood In a
secondary way, the vast majority o"
the great farming population are dependent upon the forest-clad hills
for the water which brings fertility
and wealth to the wonderful natural
soils from which spring the crops
which have become renowned the
world over.
But the timber products themselves are going out of the province
in lumber: they are giving labor to
thousands upon thousands of men
here, and building up the prairie,
from which so great a proportion or
the wealth of the East is derived
Without Ihe vast forest wealth or
British Columbia il would be impossible to build up the great farmin
areas on the other side of the
The average citizen of British Columbia has a much greater interest
than all this, however, in the great
forests of which he is part owner
and administrator, in co-operation
with the progressive hundreds ot
thousands who are making this Gre-ar
last west the mighty and potent
factor in the nation's prosperity. In
the past seven years enough money
has been paid into ihe Provincial
Treasury in the form of fees, li-ens*>
returns and royalties to pay for all
the roads, bridges and wharves which
have been constructed in that time.
Today one dollar out of every four
which comes into the public coffer
is the product of the rorest. Greater
even than thc value of the agricultural products is that of the timber
which is manufactured within the
province into lumber, pulp and other
wood products.
It is plainly evident, therefore,
ihat to maintain the prosperity of
lhe province it is necessary to maintain the fori st resource. This resource is subject t0 one of tlie grear-
est dangers in tin- world, the dan get
which brings havoc into towns, cities
and      settled      communities,      which
mounts into ibe hundreds of millions every year. Anil tiie forest
has no protection such as have the
buildings in llie great cities. Whim
the great enemy fire -breaks out

over mountains and valleys without
any possibility of being checked. In
tbe cities there are fire patrols, some

In the forest, on the other hand,
there may be no one to see the fire

0nlj 116,000 acres, with a total
rn nev   loss  of $300,000.    The  cost
of their upkeep ran into $745,000.
In comparison with the tremendous
value of the timber saved, their expense was practically nothing. in
comparison with the revenue returned to the Crown, the money invested
iu this way was but a tenth. More
and more money can be spent upon
this work without injuring to the
slightest the income of the province.
But greater than the work of tne
rangers, and vastly more important
than the i*_penditure for their activities is the expenditure by every
citizen of the province of care over
all the sources of danger which enters into his every day life. A single
cigarette butt thrown carelessly by
the road-side will occasion a fire
which will wipe out more value in
timber ll.^n would buy in, provim,.
ctgarettes for tlie next fifty years;
a little carelessness with brush burning may occasion a fire which will
burn up more than the cleared land
of the whole valley will produce In
the life of him who neglected hts
blaze; a hole punched in a donkey
stack, or neglect in the use of fire
pans might consume the money
which would be devoted to logging
machinery for that timber district
for the next generation; an uncared

burn away in the ground and finally
blaze up in a mighty conflagration
which will sweep away more wealth
than would be produced by all the
mines which the careless camper o;
prospector might uncover in all his
gold-seeking days.
If the average citizen will give hts
moral support to all the activities
of the Government in its efforts to
put out fires; will work hand in hand
with the District Forest officers and
respond quickly when the call comes
for assistance to a fire, he will buila
far more broadly and securely than
he imagines tbe basis of prosperity
for himself, for the people in his
community and for the coming generation. There devolves upon everj
man in the province a duty to nts
country in this regard, and he will
truly serve his native land who does
the simple acts of carefulness and
prevention in the ordinary course p."
his daily occupation.

TraglO Affair Occurs    Six    Furlongs
From Finish Line in Sight of
Royal  Party,
LONDON, June 19.���Emulating
tbe feat which cost Miss Emily Davison her life during tbe running of
the Derby, an unidentified "male
suffragette," during the running of
the Gold Cup race at Ascot today
attempted to stop August Belmont's
horse, Tracery, while be was heading the Held. The man was knocked down and will probably die.
Despite the efforts" of spectators to
stop hlru, the suffragette ran in
front of Tracery waving his arms,
In one hand a revolver and in the
other a suffragette flag. Just as the
horse struck him, he cried out something about Miss Davison and went
down in a heap under the horses'
hoofs. The attempt occurred about
six furlongs from the finish line, in
full sight of King George and Queen
Cards found in the pocket of the
"male,.suffragette" at the hospital
bore the name "Hewitt, Trinity College."
Eye-witnesses of the exploit said
four men ran in front of Tracery
as thi> horses thundered- down the
course. One or them carrying a flag
and a revolver, attempted to stop the
Belmont entry, shouting, "Stop, or
I will fire." He was knocked down.
One of the fallen man's associates
picked up the revolver and held the
crowd at Lay until his two uninjured
Companions escaped. Then he threw
away  the  revolver  and  fled.
Jockey Whalley was thrown to the
turf and painfully but not seriously
huit. King George called Ihe injured rider to the royal stand and
asked him about what had happened.
The injured "male suffragette"
was taken to a hosnltal where it was
found that his skull was fractured.
Physicians at once performed an
operation, but elated that the patient had no chance of recovery.

VICTORIA, June 9.���Friday afternoon Dr. A. Robinson, superintendent of Education for the province,
addressed the Conference on Women's Work in connection with the
schools in rural districts. He sug-
gested iirst that there should be
more interest shown in the election
of the school boards, which takes
place throughout the province on
the second Saturday in July. If more
general interest were shown them,
there would be fewer cases (and
they had little idea how many of
tbem there were) where clashes occurred between the majority of the
ratepayers and their school boards,
which the department of education
was asked to put straight.
He next asked for more kindly-
consideration of teachers and their
shortcomings on the part of school
boards and parents. The proportion of Incompetent teachers was no
greater than was found to be in any
other profession. There always had
been poor ones; there would always
be poor ones. How many farmers
were farming properly in the province at the present time? Were
there not many business men not
making a success of their business?
Needs Checking.
There was one practice, however,
far too common among teachers,
which he would censure. His department had safeguarded the teacher when going to a new district by
ensuring that no dismissal could
take place until the end of a term,
and then only after due notice. This
had been found necessary as instances had occurred Wht.'e, If the
teacher did not board with a certain

board, she did not hold her job long.
But though the Act thus safeguarded
the Interests of the teacher, it. also
Imposed on the teacher the obligation not to leave in the middle of a
term, even if a better position came
along, but this they far too often disregarded, and it was a practice that
needed checking.
Dr. Robinson advocated the beautifying of the school grounds and
outhouses by tree planting, the removal of stumps and rocks���but not
on to the roads���and the interesting
of the children in the breeding of
pure-bred stock to keep them on the
At the close of his address Dr.
Robinson had to reply to questions
relating to water supply to schools,
sanitary inspection and the provision
of room for the teaching of domestic economy. With regard to water
supply, he stated that the department always cautioned local authorities when building to chose a site
where water could be available, but
he thought there was too much paternalism in the province already.
They wanted people to do a little
more for themselves���that is, contribute a little more out or their own
pockets. The government built the
schools and repaired them; surely
the people of a district, might dig a
well. That is what they would do
for the supply of their own house, or
else pay for connection with some
main. Then as to the cleaning out
of the school: could they not find
the $1 to $1.50 a week necessary to
have this done?
A Delegate���Could not the children be  trained  to do this?
Dr. Robinson���It is the ratepayers
themselves I think you will find who
will not allow their children to do
Domestic Science.
In regard to accommodations for
the teaching of domestic science, Dr.
Robinson thought. It preferable on
the whole that any sucn building
should be on a separate site owned
by the ratepayers of the district, but
assured his hearers of tlie hearty cooperation of the department towards
their establishment. Asked whether
school teachers were obliged to take
up school gardening, he stated that
they were not legally compelled to
do so, though every effort was made
by tlie authorities to induce them to
undertake the work.

Xew Fisheries Cruiser Fispa Proves
to Be Worthy Sea Boat, Speedy
and Commodious.
(from the British Columbian.)
Tbe "Fispa," the uew fast fisheries protection launch, made her trial
trip down the Fraser river to Steveston and return on Saturday afternoon and proved a worthy sea craft,
speedy and steady, commodious and
staunch, admirably fitted for the important work alloted to uer in the
Fisheries protection service and fully
equTpped to be the flag ship of the
speedy, light craft that guard the
Pacific Coast fishing waters of tha
Dominion. Mr.. Samuel Dawe, Sr.,
managing dtrector of the Westminster Marine Railway Company, the
shipbuilding concern which turned
out what is conceded to be the fastest and best equipped cruiser of her
class on the Pacific Coast, was the
captain and pilot for the trip,
and with the skill of a true Newfoundlander guided the trim vessel
safely past the floating debris of a
river at the spring freshet, and in a
sail of two hours and a half, or thirty
miles, gave the company, who had
the honor of being invited, a most
pleasant afternoon. At 3:30 p.m.
the vessel swung out from the market wharf and returned at 6 o'clock,
the run back taking an hour and a
half against a stiff current. The
powerful 200 h.p. engines and the
twin screws hummed merrily with
never a stop during the run and if
the top speed of the launch was not
reached on fhis trial trip, there was
proof in the ease and smoothness
marking the operation of the engines that she would clip off 16
miles an hour when tho occasion demanded it.
The "Foam," a small fishery patrol launch, accompanied the new
boat, but speedy as the Foam Is
among river craft, she was left far
behind. A tug also, which essayed
to measure speed with the Fispa,
found much more than a match on
the down river run.
Among those who accepted the invitation to be present when a New
Westminster cruiser shouid uphold
the good name of her makers, designer and port city, were Mr. H. S.
Clements, M.P., for Comox-Atlln, in
the; coast waters of whose constituency the launch will do service at
times; Mr. 3. D. Taylor, M.P.; Mr.
F. H. Cunningham, superintendent
of Fisheries; Mr. Nels Nelson, 'president, and Mr. W.
F. Hansford, secretary, of the City
Conservative Association; Mr. C. A.
Welsh, president of the R. A. & I.
Society; Mr. E. B. Schock, of Vancouver, naval architect, who desigtr-
ed the launch; Mr. Geo. Blakeley and
Mr. Albert Dawe, who with Mr.
Sam. Dawe, Sr., the manager of the
shipbuilding works, represented the
Westminster Marine Railway Company; Mr. Geo. A. Walkem, managing director of the Vancouver Machinery Depet, Ltd., the company
supplying the engines; Mr. T. H.
Smith, merchant, Mr. Tom Trapp, of
T. J. Trapp & Co.; Mr. W. Eskins, of
the T. E. Corrigan Electrical firm of
New Westminster, who had the contract for the installation of the electrical equipment, and representatives
of the two local papers.
All the members of the crew were
ou board. Capt. G. F. Crichton;
(.'. J. House, mate; Wm. Allam, flrst
engineer; P. Douglas, second engineer; A. Anderson, cook; A. E.
Fasbam, deck hand, and A. Chappie.
The Fispa, specially designed by
Naval Architect, E. B. Schock, of
Vancouver, for a work that calls for
a speedy craft, yet one that must be
staunch to face the gales of the West
Coast of Vancouver Island and the
storms of the Gulf, and as well providing comfortable equipment for the
crew, who will make the vessel their
home for many months of the year,
is the best built boat ot her type
ever launched In British Columbia.
Her length is 82 feet, beam 14 1-2,
with ,a 3-foot draft. There are
three state rooms aft, one stateroom
having a private toilet and bath. The
crew's quarters are forward, these
also being equipped with modern
conveniences. The dining saloon under the wheel house is commodious.
Between this and the engine room is
the galley fully equipped. The pilot
house and dining room are finished in
teak, also the rails and the deck
trimmings are of this wood. The
fine-it grade of fittings have been installed, and the work done locally reflects the greatest credit on the skill
and the enterprise of the Westminster Marine Shipbuilding Company.
Architect Schock expressed himself
well pleased with the work done on
the craft, by the local builders, and
was particularly pleased with the
manner in which the vessel behaved
on this trial trip, a real trial trip,
for since tbe launching of the boat
the vessel has not been given a run
on the river. Yet the engines behaved perfectly and in all the workings with the exception of some
minor adjustments there appeared to
be no changes necessary. The contract' price for the launch was some
$38,000. The powerful gasoline
i ngines, driving the twin
screws are six cylinder Standard. 8

carried out by T. E. Corrigan, electrical contractor, of New Westminster, W. Ekins having the supervision of this work.
A New Westminster manufacturing concern has also the honor of
supplying this smart cruiser with the
chief brass and copper equipment,���
the B. C. Brass Works���and Messrs.
T. J. Trapp & Company, have supplied the other ship fittings, which
are all of the finest grade.
The Fispa is certainly a credit to
the Pacific Coast Fisheries protection service and to this city where it
was built. Those who made the trip
on Saturday and observed how the
vessel behaved although not loaded
down with her full ballast of oil and
gasoline, having only the permanent concrete ballast which represented 4000 pounds of cement, were
agreed that the Westminster Marine
Railway Company are to be congratulated-on their enterprise and
CAMBIE, Lulu Island, June 17.���
The council yesterday passed the
public morals, the real property tax,
the road extension and the traffic
regulation by-laws. Approved also
was the agreement between Burnaby
and Richmoud regarding the boundary line, which in the futurg will
I be deemed the centre line of the
Fraser North Arm.
Kenneth Laniond, secretary of the
South Vancouver Board of Trade,
communicated the desire of that or-
gauiaztion that a public market,
both wholesale and retail, be established in South Vancouver near Lulu
Island, and that the Richmoud
council extend Its co-operation.
Councillors Gay, Fentiman and Miller were appointed a committee to
take the matter up with the South
Vancouver authorities. The Point

has already appointed a committee
to go into the matter, the success of
which seems assured.
Instructions were Issued to Overseer Hardy of the road department
to have the bridge at the Westminster boundary repaired. Referred
to the chairman of the v��ater committee was Water Superintendent
