For ways that are wlley the sockeye has the heathen Chinee backed
off the map. The sockeye never does
anything that he Is expected to do,
doing those things that he ls not
wanted to do. All the piscatorial authorities in the world know as much
about him now as they did many
years ago when they first began to Investigate his life and habits.

to what an extent the "Little Brown

have been very mediocre and at present writing only about 50 cases have
been canned at the local cannery.
About the usual number will be
employed at the cannery here this
summer, approximately 150 of all na-
fit it receives from a newspaper. Witn
the large number of people who are

New York, July 22.-Charles Eb-

of the National League, asalnst the
umpires who have been sent to
Brooklyn, declaring that they have
been giving unfnlr decisions against
the club. "I am tired of seeing these
umpires render unfair decisions
against our club," said Mr. Ebbetts
to-day. "The umpires seem to believe that because tho Brooklyn club
Is not In front In the league, they
should make the decisions against
them." . .^...  .....^..1 ...... ^.,j-i
A general meeting of the members
of the newly-formed social club was
held in the room over McNeely Hall
on Monday evening last. About two
dozen members attended and a general discussion took place as to the
lines the Club should follow. From
the result we hope the foundation has
been laid of what will be a permanent
institution  ln  Ladner.
Those present included W. H.
Smith, E. T. Calvert, H. Guichon, C.
Gladwin, H. Howard, E. Howard, C.
Brown, F. M. Wallace, C. T. Gifford,
F. Guichon, J. Guichon. R. S. Voor-
hels, Hugh Brown, A. T. Scott, G. D.
Cross, L.  J.  Price and  O.  S.  Viekers.
The election of officers resulted as
follows: President, w. H. Smith;
vice-president, II. J. Hutcherson; secretary-treasurer, A. T. Scott; chairman of executive, E. T. Calvert; committee, Chas. Gifford, C. Gladwin and
A. T. Scott.
Mr. W. H. Smith (President) in
opening the proceedings, explained
the object of the meeting at some
length. An Institution of this kind
was needed in Ladner to help bind
together those socially inclined.
Many a dull evening could be spent
and, especially during the winter
months, In the gatherings that would
no doubt meet in the future. It was
intended to hold a social at frequent
Intervals and no doubt a mixed company would meet occasionally, when
dances would form an important part
of the programme.
it was also possible for other lines
of amusement, such as football, cricket, lacrosse, etc., and there was no
reason why teams could not be selected to contest other clubs In the neighborhood. He hoped the proceedings
would be listened to thoroughly by all
present. Before resuming bis seat
Mr. Smith called upon the Secretary-
Treasurer to draw up a roll call for
the signatures of all members.
This having been done, some discussion was held as to the amount
of entrance fees. It was decided that
the entrance fee should be nominal
one, and that no further contributions
be made on a regular scale. Any expenses incurred would be equally subscribed to by the members when called for.
Mr. E. T. Calvert gave a short address on his Ideas of the lines that
Club should follow', running practically in tbe same groove as those expressed by the President. There was
no reason why the members should
not be able to branch out Into several
lines of sport and be able to hold
their own against other combinations
they might meet. He would do his
utmost 10 make the Club a success.
It was decided to hold the first social on the following Wednesday, the
programme to be of an impromptu
character. A committee was delegated to make all arrangements for
the necessary refreshments.
A vote of thanks to the Chairman
clased the proceedings.
All Six of Ludncr Pupils Writing Entrance   Examinations Succeeded
in Passing.    Other Results.
The Department of Education has
announced the results of the rural
high school examinations held at various centres throughout the Province.
The number of candidates in the
four Inspectorates who presented
themselves was 364 and of these, 203
were successful. In inspectorate No.
I, which embraces Vancouver Island
and adjacent islands, there were 93
candidates; of whom On were successful. In Inspectorate No. 2, including
the lower mainland and coast, north
to Port Simpson, 74 passed out of
1--. In East and West Kootenay,
forming inspectorate No. 3, there
ivere 38 candidates successful out of
54. Yale and Cariboo districts, forming inspectorate No. I, sent up 65
candidates, of whom 41 obtained the
required marks.
Gordon H. Catchpole, of Mission
City school, obtained S30 marks out
of a possible 1,100 and secured first
place. The results of very many of
the schools in eacli inspectorate are
worthy of commendation by the Department of Education.
In the Municipality of Delta the
results were very gratifying, especially at Ladner where all ihe pupils writing the examinations were successful.
The Delta results are as follows:

The Pilgrims, Newly Organized Club,
Held  Their  First  General  Social
Evening on Wednesday.
Wednesday night the Pilgrims, the
newly organized social club, held their
first general social evening. That it
was an Immense success In every way
is simply stating the bare truth, and
that everyone present* thoroughly enjoyed themselves Is only the opinion
of all who attended.
Dinner was served during the evening and an excellent impromptu programme was rendered. The numbers
on the programme, it must be said,
formed a succession of surprises on
account of the most excellent talent
displayed by all who took part. It
demonstrated that there was a lot of
talent lying dormant in the community, wanting Just such a sort of an
organization to bring it to life, providing so much entertainment for everybody.
President Smith occupied the chair,
performing his various duties in a
capable manner. From the speeches
of himself and others it can be seen
that the Pilgrims have a high ideal
for their organization. They hope
to make the Club a credit to the
Delta, such an organization as anyone
will deem it a credit, to belong to.
It Is hoped to place an athletic team
of some sore in the field by and by,
probably open a reading room where
members can spend their evenings
profitably and pleasantly, perhaps
throw membership open to the fairer
sex and, generally speaking, perfect
the organization to a high state of
Following the president's introductory remarks, .Mr. C. Brown lead off
the first number on the programme,
rendering with gusto that classic ballad, "Everybody Works But Father,"
which seemed quite in keeping with
the occasion. Mr. A. Scott followed
with "When Dreams Come True," acquitting himself so admirably as to
win an encore. A mandolin solo by
Mr. H. E. Howard was a number that
was thoroughly appreciated, as was
also the coster song, "Mrs. 'Enery
'Aukins," given by Mr. E. T. Calvert
in his own inimitable style. Capt.
Cross orated In pleasing style in a
neat little speech, after which Mr. L.
Price gave a violin solo. Another
speech to the point, by Mr. J. Guichon, and then Messrs. C. Brown and
R. Voorheise made their debut to the
audience in one of their musical
whistling duets. Mine Host Johnston, of the Delta Hotel, next graced
tbe boards in a new role as a clog
dancer. He was minus the clogs bin
this was a matter of no moment to
such an artist as' he. Messrs. Calvert.
H Brown and C. Brown next appeared in a pleasing trio, followed by
Mr, H. Howard In a solo so well executed that an encore was necessary.
Mr. S. Viekers rendered that other
classic, "The Wild Man From Borneo." Not the least among the enjoyable parts of the programme were
the speeches by Messrs. Calvert and
Wallace, and a well-told story by Mr.
No mention of the evening would
be complete without reference to the
very excellent dinner provided by the
refreshment committee, Messrs. C.
Gifford, C. Gladwin and A. Scott.
Cold chicken in copious quantities,
tasty salads, and other delicacies,
made up a palatable repast. Messrs.
L. Price, C. Gifford and A. Scott were
untiring in ;heir efforts to see that
all were served. President Smith
proposed "The Pilgrims," and Mr.
Calvert "The King and the President." These were the only toasts
"Auld Lang Syne" and "God Save
the King" brought the pleasant evening to a close.
Hay   Crop  This   Year   About   75   Per
Cent, of What It was Last Season.
Grain   Doing   Well.
He would be hard to please Indeed
who would not be charmed with a
drive through the Delta these days
with the broad outlook, extended as
far as the eye can reach right to the
blue mist-envelope,| mountains in the
distance, of generous sized acreages
of bay and grain. Nowhere in British Columbia are there fine,- looking
farm lands than in the Delta with
their neat, well-kept fences and handsome residences, residences that would
be a credit to the largest city on the
Just now the Delta farmers are in
the throes of the hay crop and haying is going on everywhere. The crop
this year is not up to that of last
summer, the late spring and pasturing being responsible. Some farmers
claim that this year's crop is about
one-half of that of last year. Some
of course have a good crop and are
satisfied, but generally speaking, it
would be safe to place the crop at
about 75 per cent, of last year's. By
the end of next week the crop will be
pretty well harvested.
At present writing the prospects for
a good grain crop are excellent. The
grain is ripening nicely and coming
on well and with proper climatic conditions for the balance of the season
there should be a good sized crop.
Oats, the principal grain grown on
the Delta, Is splendid and there should
be a full crop. What wheat there is
growing Is in good condition.
There is a large acreage in potatoes
and indications are that there will be
a good crop.
The apple crop Is far from being
good and careful estimates place the
yield at about 50 per cent. Pears are
patchy, some places being good and
at   others  decidedly   poor.
All the small fruits look well, and
currants, the principal small fruit
grown here, are immense. Small
fruits of all kinds do well on the
Delta but owing to the lack of suitable transportation facilities the venture In small fruits is not a very profitable one just now.
Among the latest visitors to Dew

, Miss May Sutton, the tennis champion, did her preliminary practice for

several valuable trophies for her already large collection this season, Followers of tennis never tire of watching Miss Sutton at play. She puts mom

"Rod  and   Gun,''  writing in   the
News-Advertiser,   says:
"The Importation of the partridge
and liberating them on the Delta and
at Chilliwack, has proved very successful. The country seems to be well
adapted to them. The birds have increased in great numbers, and cam"
through the hard winters we have
had for the past two years in good
shape. Last year Mr. A. E. Todd, of
Victoria, and his brother, Dr. Todd,
j imported several hundred of ;hese
birds, and put them out on Vancouver Island. This Is the second trial
that has been made to get these birds
established on the Island. I am told
that the first experiment was not an
unqualified success, and have so far
been unable to get any definite word
as to how those brought out by Mr.
Todd have come along. There are e
number of quail on the Island, and if
the partridge should prove a success
the sportsmen of that section will be
envied. I don't think that th so Iw
birds can be equalled from a spoilsman's standpoint."
Ottawa, July 1.���-A statement issued by the immigration branch gives
an interesting classification of the
immigration into Canada during the
past doezn years'. It covers a period
from January 1, 1S97, to March 31,
1909; to be exact, a period of twelve
years and three months. The following   results  appear:
Total immigration, 1,366,651; British immigration, 540,621; Continental
European immigration, 400,560; Immigration from the United States,
425,170; English and Welsh immigration, 377,801; Scotch immigration,
94,279:   Irish   immigration.   30,184.
The proportion of the f.iregoing
classes of immigrants who made entry for homesteads were as follows:
Continental Europeans, 3(1 per cent.;
immigrants from the United States,
43 per cent.; English and Welsh, 21
percent.; Scotch, 22 per cent; Irish,
24 per cent.
A portion of the statement is devoted 10 showing the number of immigrants debarred. Since December.
1902, when the Medical Act went into
force, of the immigrants at ocean
ports 19.S97 were held for further Inspection and 3.803 were rejected. Inspection of immigrants seeking admission into Canada from the United
States was begun in April, 1908, and
during the fiscal year, 1908-9, 4,3'0
intending immigrants were debarred.
Further it Is shown that 3,149 Immigrants who passed inspection afterwards became a public charge In one
way or another and were deported.
The number was insignificant until
1907-8 when it rose to 825, and in
1908-9 it was 1,748. Ncjruiy two-
thirds of those deported, or 2,007,
were English. The Scotch came next
with 206, then Americans al 149.
then Bulgarians with 1.17. No other
nationality reached the hundred mark
and   Ihe remaining deportations  were
distributed amongst forty-two nationalities.
Turning to the homestead entries
during this period tile statistics show:
Total entries, 265,4S3; entries by English, 33,476; entries by Scotch, 8,673;
entiies by Irish, 3,202; entries by Americans, 72.S24; entries by Continental
Europeans,  4 8.613.
The Immigration branch is careful
to point out that the homestead entry
figures do not take into account the
thousands of farm laborers and domestics who have settled in other parts
of the Dominion.
It was shown that bonus was paid
on 16.47 per cent, of the British Immigrants, 5.6 per cent, of the Immigrants corning from the United Stales,
and on 10.99 per cent, ot the immigrants from the continent.
Another set of figures shows the
occupation or calling ot immigrants
since the year 1903-4. During the
period almost exactly a million Immigrants have come in; of these 700,391
entered by ocean ports and 299,603
came from the United States.
The occupations were:
Ocean Ports���Farm nnd farm laborers, 187,991; general laborers, 181,-
397; mechanics, 175,430: clerks, traders, etc., 46,453; miners, 1*8,078; domestics,  36,803.

The residents of Delta regret very
much that the Hon. Wm. Pugsley,
Minister of Public Works, deemed it
unnecessary to call at Ladner, notwithstanding the fact that he passed
up the river and by the town on Mon- '
day last. This department of the
Ottawa government had been appealed to time and again by the residents of Ladner and Westham Island
in regard to the protection of their
dykes through the ever changing of
the channel of the river
The opportunity of presenting their
case to him personally was lost
through the minister's neglect to
make Ladner one of his calling points.

news columns, a social club enjoying
the name of The Pilgrims, has been
formed In Ladner. The objects of
the new club, briefly stated, may be
said to be that of a social nature.
From the remarks of those instrumental in its formation, however, it
is highly probable that the Club, yet presented
in its tentative stages, will broaden
its scope and embrace athletics, get
up entertainments and generally assist in helping its members to spend
pleasant  and   profitable  hours.
Such institutions as these have their
place in the life of any community,
and under proper direction can become very useful, of material benefit
to those associated with them. The
avenues for good, healthy, clean enjoyment are necessarily limited in a
place the size of Ladner, and time
often hangs heavy on the hands of
its young men, and anything that
helps to pass the leisure moments,
giving profit to mind and body, and
at the same time entertainment, is
welcome. The interest that Canadians generally take in amateur sport,
and the success that they have met
with, is a good thing for the nation.
Active, clean bodies make for good
citizenship. We hope The P lg. lips
will not neglect the physical side of
their curriculum. And then durin?
the winter months debates and other
such numbers on the programme will
develop the intellectual attainments.
However, the club is In good hands
and no doubt these and other good
things  will  follow  In  good   time.

the claims of New Westminster every

the ministers' remarks.     J. D. Taylor,
M.I\,   moved   a   vote  or thanks which

J.   A.   Lee,   president   of   the Board

Pugsley and    Hon.  Wm.  Templeman.
On the trip up the river he said they
had tried to Impress on the ministers,
the necessity of more    improvements.
The main issue was the widening and
deepening  of  the     channel     of     the
Fraser River so as to make it navigable for the largest vessels. At present  there was  , a splendid    channel
varying in depth from 20 to 80    feet
with an average depth of 35 feet.    It
was about 22  miles to the mouth of
the river  and  In  that  distance there
were practically only two points where
any large improvements were necessary to make the stream navigable
for all sea going vessels. Large industries were already established
there and others were coming as soon
as the channel was sufficiently improved. This would make the City of
New Westminster prosperous and
would redound to the credit all
Mr. Lee congratulated the Department of Public Works on the competent engineer whom they had ln
charge of their work here in the person of Mr. Keefer. He knew the conditions well and the speaker hoped
that the department would give careful consideration to the requests of
the city and to the report of their
engineers on the matter. He then introduced Mayor Keary.
Dr. Pugsley Kept  Promises.
Mayor Keary had  gone    to Ottawa
a year ago on behalf of the city to In-
j terview Hon. Mr. Pugsley asking him
to have some steps taken to improve
the channel of the Fraser River to
New Westminster.    A report of    the

He was pleased    to state
I that  Mr.   Pugsley    had    kept    every
a few places. He concluded by moving that a vote of thanks be extended
to the ministers for their visit to New
Westminster and for their attention
to the claims of this city. His motion
was seconded by W. Norman Bole,
K.C., and was enthusiastically carried.

He believed that It was within
measurable distance when the products of Alberta and Saskatchewan
would be shipped to the Pacific
Ocean and he saw no reason why
some of tbe grain should not come to
New Westminster as well as to Vancouver and later on to Prince Rupert

the enormous value of harbor facilities. Mr. Templeman concluded by
saying that anything Dr. Pugsley
might do in the way of Improving the

with the finances at his disposal would
have his hearty co-operation and support.
Dr. Pugsley Pleased.
Hon. Dr. Pugsley in opening expressed pleasure at the opportunity
afforded him of being present and of

that Ihey would see their way clear
to grant these reasonable requests,
and that where when they visited the
city again they would see vast improvements.
Reasons for Improvements.
John I'rean drew the attention of
Mr. Pugsley why it was advisable to
improve the channel of the Fraser.
He pointed out that there are vast
timber limits up the river and estimated thill there were fully 40 billion
feet of timber in 'he country tributary
to the Fraser which could be brought
down the river. There were now
some 20,000,000 feet of ��� logs
on the Fraser River, part of which
had been there for over a year. This
timber was still in good condition, a
thing not possible if the water was
salt. The cost of floating these logs
down to New Westminster was considerably lower than taking them to
Vancouver, New Westminster had
the goods and that all that wns required was a chance to deliver them.
W. Norman  Bole, K.C.,  stated  that
in all his long residence here lie had
advocated   the opening ol' the Fraser
River for navigation and be was glad
lo see the ministers here as    a proof
that   the  Importance  of    the     Royal
City was being recognized.    The opening of the Fraser River was a national
que8tlpn   nnd   it  would   prove  one  of
the most  valuable assets of the province.    The development of the rivers
would  promote  trade  In .every direc-!
tion.    He gave credit to the Dominion '
government   for   the   way  they     had j
dealt  with   the  Fraser River  in     the]
past and hoped that the day was not
far distant when this city would rival
Vancouver  tn  wealth,  population and

lion.   William  Templeman  expressed  pleasure  in    the    opportunity    of
meeting the people of New Westm.in-1
I ster.    With Dr. Pugsley he had spent;
in the channel and that it can be easi
ly removed. Our engineer, Mr. Keefer, than whom there is no better, tells
me that there will be no difficulty in
getting a 30 foot channel to the
mouth of the river and that it is only
v. question of the cost."
May Work Double Shifts.
Dr. Pugsley stated that he was Informed that the Fruhling could remove ,"000 cubic yards of earth In 10
hours. Working 20 hours per day, as
would he the case if they decided to
work by electric light and to put on
an extra shift, would mean that some
10,000 cubic yards of earth would be
removed every day and at that rate
they would soon be able to Improve
the channel of the river. He stated
that this dredge had cost *>250,000
with an additional jr.0,000 for duty.
It was brought to this city, 15,000
miles under Its own steam nnd he believed that It would do good work.
"As Minister nf Public Works, I
feel that I owe it to you to assist In
every possible manner consistent with
the resources at my comarand In the
development of this great province.
I think the country will get an adequate return for money expended in
the development of the resources of
tho country. I can assure you that
tho requests or the Province or British Columbia will receive as sympathetic attention as any other Province ln Canada. Coming to British
Columbia ha sbeen a revelation to me.
I had heard of the progress and opportunities for advancement but till I saw
for myself I did not realize the extent
of the resources and had not tho
faith ln the great future of this province that I have today. I will return full of confidence in British Columbia and will endeavor to aid In
the development of Its grand resources." .

THE return of the picnic season
brings memories of the past,
some pleasant, some otherwise. Whelhcr a picnic is all
that It Is clucked up to be depends ou
various circumstances. It might almost be said Unit in tbe bright lexicon
of youth there Is no such phruse ns uu
unpleusant picnic. Children ure usually able to find enjoyment in a picnic
even when the weather man does his
very worst. The clouds have a silver
lining for them. The rain caunot
dampen tlielr ardor or queucb the fires
of boyish and girlish enthusiasm for
fun. It ls when one gets older that a
bad day may spoil the pleasure of a
picnic, fake the crease out of a pair
of trousers or ruin the pretty stenographer's tailor made suit, bought with
the fruit of three weeks' arduous toil,
and make her peach basket hat and
trimmings look as If they had been
through the flood. A few experiences
of this kind serve to put one in a pessimistic mood and wish that picnics
had never been invented.
But, after all, the picnic ls a good
thing, especially the old fashioned variety. In the good old days���of course
everything was good in the days gone
by���a picnic was not an everyday affair or an incident of every week end,
but an event of the season, something
to be looked forward to for days and
remembered for years. For the farmers' wives It w as an oasis in the desert
of drudgery. It was as much better
than a meeting of the parish sewing
Sceiety ns ice cream is superior to
chewing gum. For their daughters it
was the best chance of the year to secure a beau, and but for the dear old
picnics  of  those uimple  times  there

And then If on the way home a show

doctor's bills come soon and often, the
lieud of the family has heart failure
und begins to woudcr If picnics really
But the children and tho young folks
are sure they do, and so we will always have picnics. If the custom depended altogether on the grownups,
probably it would long ago have been
relegated to the realm of outworn and
discarded Institutions, like boopsklrts,
bicycle meets, plngpong parties uml
horse cars, the latter being obsolete
now In most every city of tbe country
except New York.

In matters of this kind, after naming
such well known picnic meats as ham.

mikes the following suggest Inns
which may be useful to housewives
who have to do the providing for such
"i .'ne might go on almost indefinitely
h the rules for sandwiches by vary-
the filling used, and there ls tlic
atest opportunity (or originality In
: Hue. Hard boiled eggs, cooked so
to be digestible, may lie chopped
��� when warm, seasoned lightly with
butter, salt and pepper und spread in
a thick paste on bread. Whole meal
or graham breud makes a change and
I.-, nice for some sorts of sandwiches.
Brown bread and sausage make a very
substantial combination, quite Teutonic in- flavor. Caviare is also good on
brown bread. Lobster, salmon. Yarmouth bloaters, anchovy paste, potted
meat or game may be used with
good effect. Among the many things
which may be cooked at home or
brought to the picnic ready for use
may be named tho following, all of
which will be found very "tasty," as
the farm wife's phrase is: Chocolate,
buttered biscuit, a jar of baked pears,
fresh gingerbread, cheese, sardines,
cold meats, cake, tea, pickles, olives,
ginger beer, lemonade, fruit of all
sorts, cucumbers, salads hi glass Jars,
jellies and marmalades. Cake should
be made ln a light, firm loaf, or, better
still, hi small individual cakes, cookies
and the like.
"The above are not all recommended for any one picnic any more than
they would all be put upon the table
at home for any one meal. They are
all 'good to take,' however, ln any
sense of the word, and uiauy varied
and appetizing picnic menus may be
made up from them. Here, again,
the manager of the picnic should come
in to arrange in advance what each
person shall contribute to tbe feast in
a general way in order that there may
be a varied aud attractive bill of fare.
Half tbe fun of a picnic, however, lies
In cooking tbe dinner out of doors, or
at least some portion of It. There are
many things beside tbe coffee or tea
which may be made on the spot, and
somehow this food, prepared gypsy
fashion, always seems to have a peculiarly delicious flavor quite unlike that
given to articles cooked in the usual
way. Potatoes are delicious when
roasted in the ashes or a rock oven.
A good way is to build a fire over a
large flat stone. When burned to
coals, rake It off, wrap sweet or white
potatoes iu wet brown paper, cover
with sand and rebuild the tire. Birds
may be cooked in the same way. Potatoes may be roasted iu tbe hot ashes
with coals all around them. Apples
and eggs are delicious also when
roasted thus, only care must be taken
to prick a little hole with a pin In the
upper end of the egg lest It burst in
roasting. Green corn never tastes so
good as when roasted over the coals
of a wood fire, and even boiled In a
'gypsy kettle' the flavor is bettor than
in the ordinary style. With skillet, a
slice or two of bacon and some eggs
most appetizing dishes may be con-
All of which advice goes to prove
too, tho superiority of the old fashion
ed style of picnic over the new, at least
so far as tho eating program goo.-., for
It seems to be taken for granted that
nothing tastes quite so good as viands
cooked out of doors and served with
nature's own garnishings to increase
the gastronomic attractions.

They make a large number of our citizens wish that some man of tho Garner'stamp had the power not iilono

The <ase on which the Brooklyn justice based bis roast of, the police com-
mlssloner is that of n boy arrested
numerous limes without any offense
being charged against him, as a consequence of which bis picture ls In the
rogues' gallery. The lad, it seems.
Is hard working and of good family.
Repeated appeals to havo his picture
removed from the rogues' gallery
brought no response, except to single
him out for Increased persecution.
Jusliee Gaynor asserts that, there are
other boys in the city being treated In
the same manner, that there Is no warrant of law lri putting any one itrthe
rogues' gallery that has not been convicted of crime and that the police
commissioner generally conducts himself as one who Is above the law. It
Is a severe arraignment both of the
police and (ho administration, and as
Bingham Is loved but little nnd Meridian not nt all there Is popular joy
in consequence.
Just to show the mayor ami some of
the "blue law" advocates that New
Yorkers have no sympathy with the
crusade against Coney Island, a crowd
of 880,000 recently swooped down on
Ihe resort, over 187,000 visiting one of
the attractions by actual count. Since
Coney, through legal requirements, has
i cen turned into nn Institution of
htgher learning, this Indicates that a
whole lot of Now Yorkers are being
What ppople here so much object to
ls thai comparatively Innocent amusements are raided by the police while
actual crime goes unchecked, In oue
block in Forty-second street there
have been ei.ciit burglaries, within the
sptue of a few months, Sjnfe crackers
no longer do their work OU the premises, but haul tho safe awny i��id finish
the job at their leisure. Instead of
arresting people for running seaside
resorts on Sunday, for lecturing on
Ibson ar.d for tl*e mere prime of being
boys, there is a widespread feeling
that our sleuths of the law ought to
.*lop n little of the thievery and murder that continues throUTh all days
and nights of the week. Tho cry Is
for less blue law. and n li'.tlp more
plain, unadulterated law without tints
or trimmings. Of course the mayor
gets the blame for nil the civic sins of
omission and commission, nor docs he
make as handsome or attractive a goat
; as did I,oeb.
Even more phenomenal than the blg-
1 ness of New York is Its growth. It ls
well nigh Impossible to follow the
I sweep of business uptown and of residences into Long Island, Into Staten
Island, into Jersey, up the Hudson,
into the Bronx and up the sound, even
Into Connecticut.   Nowhere ls this ris-
The passage of the Travls-ltoblnson
bill, which has just been signed by the
governor, somewhat relieves the traction situation. The worst thing about
It Is that It throws down the bars for
private capital to build future subways, although this evil is modified by
the provision that the city may buy
the road after a stated term of years,
this term being brief and the price
being fixed at actual cost of construction plus interest. Outside of this one
backward step, the provisions of the
measure are good. For one thing, the
act adjusts the debt limit so that the
city Itself may build and makes it
possible to tax the owners of nearby
property, which will be Increased in
value by the new subway, to bear part
of the cost in the same way that the
owners of abutting property are assessed for street Improvements. And
now that the legal obstacles are removed we may expect the burrowing
to go forward until Manhattan Island
is as full of holes as a Roquefort
The HcAdoo company Is still clamor-
lug to extend its Hudson tunnels into
Forty-second street, and the corporation operating the present subway Is
still throwing obstacles in the way.
O selfishness, thy name is high finance,
or words to that effect! If there is
anything in the theory of reincarnation, then the modern trust is uot an
artificial being at till, but a natural one
that has in it the souls of all the pigs
that havo been slain since the adoption
of the Declaration of Independence.
And of all the trusts that personify
pork worst is the traction trust of
New Yorli, Thnt line could be sung
or whistled, but ii requires a punk
description to tit /lio subject. The
motto of the traction trust Is, "It Is
the standing freight that pays." It Is
worse than Standard Oil for the rprroii
that its 111 gallon gains are spent on
race tracks rather than on churches
and colleges, and It could give the
beef trust pointy on the packing industry.
Another thing that will help In getting more subways is the fact that we
are to have a new mayor after the
first of next year. With a business
administration run on linos of economy and honesty there would be little
difficulty in the city financing tho proposition for Itself, but where there are
a thousand leaks In the form of graft
and n thousand more due to unbusinesslike methods no money is loft for
legitimate undertakings. Whatever the
outcome of the election. McCIellnn will
go out. and the prospects of beating
the entire Tammany regime are improving every day. A great independ-'
out movement is now assured, and ln
this will be a large element of former
Tammany men. Tho writer happens
to be lu a position to know of many
moves that have not yet become public, nnd, while he cannot give the details of these at this time, he Is free
to say thnt the outlook, which hns
been good for n month past, Is growing brighter. Even though Roosevelt
does not come back from Africa to
add the Tammany tiger to his kills
Richard (""roller's old pet is going to
have the light of Us life.
It was the killing of little Ingevard
Trimble by an automobile which then

the recent conviction of the chnuffcui'
who run over the Trimble boy and
who fied to Texas, but was brought
back, gives general satisfaction. The
^verdict of the jury was manslaughter
in the first degree. It may seem like
;i drastic remedy, but the cure needed
for the speed mania ls to build a few
large jails for joy riders and have
them packed to the doors.
