PANAMA, Oct. 15���Canal officials
were hoping today that before nightfall the tug Miraflores will have been
passed through the Pedro Miguel
locks, completing the first actual
working of them. The tug, with
three barges and two other small
craft, passed the first flight of the
Miraflores locks, from the Pacific
yesterday, but could not get beyond
Miraflores lakes owing to lack of
water In the canal section between
the second flight and Cucaracha
slide. It rose rapidly throughout
the night, however, and but little
more delay was looked for.
Last Saturday's meeting of the
municipal council was a quiet affair,
occupying but little time. There was
no business of importance to be considered, so after hearing the reading
of three or four communications a
list of accounts were passed and an
adjournment was made to the next
regular meeting day.
Among the communications was
one from A. H. McNeill, of the Creat
Northern Railway, notifying council
that In accordance with recent orders
all railway crossings in the municipality had been repaired. Another
communication was from the Royal
Columbian Hospital, enclosing an account for treatment of one Rasmus
Peterson, said to be from Delta.
This was laid on the table for further information before action. A
third communication was from D.
Murchie & Co., with account for the
burial of a man whose address was
given as Delta, and who died in St.
Mary's Hospital, New Westminster.
Council wants more information regarding this also.
The following is a list of the accounts passed for payment:

Railway   Commissioners Issue   nnd
Sign Order Looting Railway
Depot at Fort Fraser.
VANCOUVER, Oct. 16.���A telegram from Ottawa received yesterday says that the Dominion Railway
Commissioners, on Saturday last,
passed order No. 20,518, for the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway station
at Fort Fras<_r, B.C., ana that the
order was signed yesterday morning.
While the Grand Tiunk Pacific
plans for a station on oi.amberlain

Railway Commissioners, it was not
until Saturday that the order was
given which was officially signed
Only Half the Acreage of 1012 in
Valley���Reported Shortage
in Oregon.
(From The British Columbian.)
Last year there was a very large
acreage of potatoes in the Fraser
Valley aud thousands upon thousands of tons were fed to hogs or
let rot for the want of hogs to
which to feed them. There waa no
market, or next to none last winter.
As a consequence this season most
farmers were disguBted with potatoes aud as a result the acreage was little more than half that
of 1912.
Tne potato market to date cannot be said to have been good, and
in some localities sales have been
made at as low a figure as $10 per
ton. But, as a rule, few No. 1'
potatoes have yet been put on the
market. It is pretty generally conceded that the price will advance
very shortly. An evidence of this
belief is a quotation made by an
Ashcroft grower last week of $21.60
per ton for No. 1 grade, f.o.b. New
There has never, heretofore, been
a market for British Columbia potatoes in Washington, for, if there
was a shortage on the other side of
the line, the duty of 25 cents a
| bushel, or $8.33 per ton, was prac-
' tically prohibitive. Now, however,
under the new U. S. tariff the rate
is an ad valorem one of ten per cent.,
which with potatoes at say $15 per
ton would be only $1.50 as against
the former charge of $8.33. And
as there is a reported shortage ln
Oregon, and in parts of Washington
the crop is none too good, there is
expectancy of an American demand
for British Columbia potatoes, and
consequently good prices.

and   judgment  was  reserved.
The election was held in October,
1912, the respondent being elected.
A petition against his return was
filed to which bs took preliminary
objections that 'be petliioner was
not qualified to vote and therefore
could not be a petrtloner; that he
bas become disqualified by corrupt
practices during the election; that
the petition and affidavits were irregular, and that notice of the petition has not been properly published.
The petition was dismissed on the
last ground.

Wesbrook, president of the University of British Columbia, was the
sptaker at yesterday a luncheon of

with the Provincial University in
relation to national efficiency.
Taking up his topic Dr. Wesbrook
said that national efticieucy might be
accepted as any one of different
things in .he different geographical
areas of the Dominion. On the
prairies they might think that national efficiency meant more wheat.
In a large sense it did, as wheat
was not only national m Its import-
acce but international as well. Coming to the coast, British Columbia
interests miglit think national efficiency meant more lumber or more

Hon. Justice Clement Grants Request
of Counsel for Defence���Argument in Dean Case.
(From The British Columbian.)
The    application    ot Mr.    J.    M.
Reeve, K.C, that the Powell case be
traversed,   was   granted   tnis   afternoon by Hon. Mr. Justice Clement.
j An application was   also   made    by
! counsel for the defence that moneys
i taken   from   Powell  be  returned  to
him.    This  was said  to  be  first  a
j matter between counsel for the de-
I fence and counsel for the crown, the
I court refusing to hear it at that time.
1    Mr. A. H. MacNelll, K.C, applied
j ln behalf of the crown for a traverse
of the Dean case. Mr. Adam S. Johnston opposed this. Argument will be
heard  tomorrow  morning at  10:30.
The tall figure of Martin Powell
occupied the box this morning, the
jurors had all answered their names,
everything was ready for the trial,
Powell      having    been    previously
charged    with   burgling   the  Bank
of Montreal but following his lordship's entry, Mr. Reeve at once made
his address.    He said that he was
sarrsfied that his instructions wore
to prove an alibi, and that he was
able to prove it, but he did not \vi3h
to proceed  without the fullest evidence.
The court here stated that some
time had elapsed since Mr. Reeve
made n similar application. Mr.
Reeve replied that he ha*d b��en in
communication with attorneys in
Detroit and It had been foiiufi impossible for them to go on with 'he
case this session. He intended to
trace Powell's movements prior to
and after the date of the robbery
and to show that lt was improbab e
if not impossible that he was here at
that date. Hotel registers would Dlay
a part in this.
As tor the names of the witnesses
he said that the prisoner could not
supply them with any degree of accuracy. The Detroit solicitors had
to interview parties, whom they
thought might establish certain
facts, before they were ready to go
on. This meant further communication between himself and them. I.
would be impossible to have tbei.-
case ready before another thre*?
His lordship observed that the
matter of these witnesses should be
well to the fore during the extradition proceedings, and agreed with
Mr. Reeves that he had done his
best to expedite matters.
Defending counsel then said that
he would not unduly press thc matter, but the position of the prisoner
could  not  be overlooked.
Here was a man, a stranger la a
strange land, his ftfnds exhausted
and wtthout friends, IiIb witnesses
scattered all over the country. It
was a significant fact that the Dean
case had taken a year before the
Crown was ready to proceed with
the trial. Here It was proposed to
take this man, who had only within
the past few weeks set his foot ou
Canadian soil, and to try him forthwith.
Mr. A. H. MacNelll, K.C, thought
the request for an adjournment a
reasonable one. This ln answer to
the court. It was therefore so ordered.

This Scarcity Is Felt Particularly Hy
Dealers in Fresh and Frozen
(From The British Columbian.)
A feature of thc rail fishing this
year Is the disappointing run of
cohoes. So far they have not entered the river in the numbers anticipated.
This shortage ia not affecting canning operation as very few canneries
have wanted cohoes this year, sockeyes having been plentiful, but the.
comparative scarcity Is felt in fresh
and frozen fish business, which
would absorb more than are being
caught. On tliis account the dog
si.lmon, which is really a better fish
to eat than the cohoe, but labors under an unfortunate name, is being
used to some extent in the fresh fish
business and ls being frozen in large
number for the later trade.
It does qpt appear that the northern run of cohoes is any better, if
as good, as tTTe Fraser run. Last
fall, for the first time, several freezing firms, including the Columbia
Cold Storage, of this city, put In

camps have returned. A number

PORT MOODY, Oct. 15.���Mayor
P. D. Roe has definitely announced
that he will not be a candidate for
the mayoralty next year, as he intends making an extended tour of
Europe, which will occupy him some
three or possibly four, months in
the early part of the coming year.
The news will come as a surprise
to many of his friends in this city,
who confidently expected that he
would again guide the destiny of
civic affairs for at least another
term. Keen disappointment ls felt
by them, realizing as they do the
fact that the straight business policy always advocated and secured by
Mayor Roe may be difficult to replace. Although the current year
marks his maiden efforts as the
city's chief executive, already he has
won a name for himself as an able
administrator, and one who hesitated long before placing any monetary
obligations ou the ratepayers.
Mayor Roe expects to leave on his
combined business and pleasure trip
about the middle of January and
will be accompanied by Mrs. Roe
and family.
Although his worship's decision
was only reached some few days ago,
already Dame Rumor Is busy with

PORT MOODY, Oct. 15.���The

road between this city and Port Coquitlam last week marked the clos-1
lug of the Government road work
for this year, and the end of last

D. Gunn and W. David, laid off until next spring. The machinery and
other paraphernalia connected with
road building is now being greased
and oiled preparatory to going into
winter quarters at Mr. Hoy's place
nsar the Pipe Line road at Coquitlam.
The completed road, which ls approximately four mlleB ln length,
has been oiled lately and is now one
of the finest stretches throughout
the entire length of this splendid
highway. Motorists may now negotiate the distance between here and
Port Coquitlam in a very few minutes, while the end of next yea*-
should see the road complete from
Mission City to Vancouver.
Defence Asks for Postponement Till
Tuesday   Which   Is   Not
(From-The British Columbian.)
Hon. Mr. Justice Clement this
morning ruled that the Dean trial
must go on at mice. A jury was
therefore empanelled, Crown Counsel gave his address and the case Is
proceeding, Mr. W. H. G. Phipps, of
the Bank of Montreal being the first
witness called.
Mr. Adam S. Johnston, junior
counsel for the defence, applied for
an adjournment until Tuesday, when
Sir Charles Tupper, his senior, would
be able to be present. He said that
Sir Charles was engaged in a civil
case in Vancouver, for which Mr.
Justice Morrison had adjourned the
criminal assize.
Mr. A. H. MacNeill, K.C, stated
that the Crown desired to go on at
cnce. The court thought that this
should be done, His Lordship pointing out that the congestion of business in the courts emphasized this
course of action. He did not wish
to lose any more time.
Jury Empanelled.
There were a large number of
challenges before the following jury
was empanelled: W. 3. Goodwin,
foreman; R. Greenway, W. E. Gooding, A. E. Gibson, J G. Germain, W.
J. Ooldstone, J. R. Gibbon, W. Gor-
rie, A. M. Grieve, J. Gibson, G. Gib-
bard, Jr.
His Lordship then charged the
jury that he had power to disallow
them to separate during the trial.
This he did not mean to exercise but
he would caution them to speak to
no one and to allow no one to speak
to them concerning the case.
Mr. MacNeill then addressed the
jury, and, in reply to a request from
His Lordship, stated that Powell was
arrested in June. 1912; MacNamara,
January 24, 1912, and Dean in January, 1912.
Preparatory to undertaking extensive harbor Improvement, Mr. L.
Nelson, superintendent of the dredging department of the Public Works
of Canada, with headquarters at
Vancouver, has sent to Victoria the
two chief operators to spend some
time familiarizing themselves with
the details of dredge operation. Mr.
Nelson conferred with Mr. F, H.
Shepherd, M.P., at Nanaimo, on Friday, in reference to the harbor improvements, and more particularly
with regard to the installation of
the Lobnitz rock crusher ordered
from Scotland by the Dominion
government, for special use in the
Nanaimo harbor to remove certain
rocks. The rock crusher is now being assembled on the Mainland, this
is in accordance with instructions received! from Ottawa. The hull will
be launched ln about a week's time
and it is expected that the crusher
will be at work within sixty days.
Mr. Nelson has assured Mr. Shepherd
that he will use every effort to expedite the assembling of the rock
crusher. The personnel operating
the crusher will oe composed entirely
of local workmen.
Aldermanlc Resignation.
While Alderman Humber at Friday night's meeting of the city council persisted in tendering his resignation as a protest against the methods
of the -hayor in conducting the Inquiry into charges made by the alderman and his confrere, Alderman
Cutbbert, it is doubtful if the matter
will be proceeded with further. The
regulations governing council proceedings require that when an alderman resigns he shall accompany his
resignation with the sum of $50.
The alderman failed to attach to his
resignation the most necessary adjunct. In consequence, his resignation cannot be said to have been
regularly made.
Herring Run On.
Mr. George Moran, who is in the
city from Nanaimo, reports that the
herring run has started in several of
the waters nearby. Outfits are now
fishing at Nanoose Bay and Active
Pass and a party is outfitting going
down to Cowichan Gag in the hope
that the herring will be plentiful
enough to guarantee good catches.
Three new salteries are being erected
at the Gap this year. The run at
Nanaimo will not start for some
weeks yet but two outfits are now
fishing dog salmon and are said to
be meeting with fair success. Two
seine boats are fishing for dog salmon. There are from twelve to
fourteen men apiece in each outfit.
The Gulf of Georgia Company are
salting down dog salmon here and
also Mr. Thos. Vlervich at Departure

George Ross, chief post office superintendent for the Dominion, is expected to arrive in bhe city almost
any day. His visit here may result

Unable to Agree on Verdict in Dean
Case, Is Discharged By
(From The British Columbian.)
After a twelve days' trial in which
tbe greater part of the evidence was
of the same nature as has been adduced in other trials connected with
the famous bank robbery case,
Charles Dean stands neither acquitted nor found guilty, the jury coming to a flat disagreement after four
and one half hours' deliberation last
evening. .
At 8 o'clock, the court having reassembled half an hour previously,
tbe foreman announced the above
decision, and, tn reply to his lord
ship, stated that there was no possible chance of them agreeing. Six
were on one side and six on the
other. Though pressed by Sir Chas.
Hibbert Tupper that the jury should
deliberate further the court decided
to discharge them.
Defends  Greenwood.
Mr. E. P. Davis, K.C, addressed
the jury for the Crown after lunch.
He justified the employment of the
Pinkerton agency, ln this case, and
said that the jury might assume
that every possible clue had been
hunted down. This In refuting Sir
Charles Tupper's references to tha
watchman and Janitor of the bank.
Why had not the people with whom
Dean was living in Vancouver been
placed In the stand, so thut it might*
be shown where Dean was on the
night of the robbery, he asked. He
dweTl on the chain of suspicious
events which connected Dean with
the affair and defended Greenwood,
who, he said, had been rattled under the strain of cross-examination
and had thus given his answers
concerning bis past life.
Charge to Jury.
His lordship told the jury to disabuse their minds of all preconceived notions concerning Dean. They
were trying him on the evidence.
He stood before them as a normal
law-abiding citizen and it was for
the Crown to bring home the burden of proof of the charge. The
only evidence connecting Dean and
Powell and MacNamara was that ot
Greenwood. If tbey thought this
witness had seen the three men together It was legitimate to draw the
irference that Dean was a participant in the robbery. Eliminating
Greenwood there was a much weaker chain of evidence. If they disregarded Ferguson's evidence concerning MacNamara and bis cranking or the motor then he would have
to charge them there was no case
against Dean. The jury withdrew
at 3:30 p.m.
The officers elected for the ensuing
year at the annual meeting of the
North Vancouver Board of Trade,
held last evening, were: Honorary

farmer does not know the kind wanted, he falls down when it comes to
producing the types of animals commanding the highest prices and which

be said that the farmer feeds the
type of animal he has on hand or
is able to procure. Very true. But
would he not, aim to raise better
types if he were thoroughly familiar
with market requirements? We believe he would, and this is one of
the reasons why something more
should be done to educate the farmer
on market requirements.

evening, and he added to the cognomen of the organization he represented the word "Democratic," so
that from now onward, according to
the formal christening of Mr. Smith,
it will be known as the "Liberal
Democratic part *."
He also advised the Socialists and
others whom he termed "advanced
thinkers" to cast in their lot with
the Liberal Democratic party, explaining that if they could not get
a whole loaf It was better to get
half a loaf than not get even a
crumb. The advice as to a coalition
of the Socialists and Liberals applied
only to British Columbia, where he
conceded that there was no other
way to defeat the McBride government. In fact, he did not hold out
a very bright hope for success even
with the factions united.
