meeting as most enthusiastic, each
member being convinced that cooperation was the only solution to

ine. presence of soft, spongy
growths in tlie nasal passages, commonly cauea adenoids, is responsible for considerable Ill-health
amongst children. The condition is
due to an unhealthy state ot the
membrane lining the mose", ;und

enlarged tonsils.
Symptoms���The adenoids vary in
size from a pea to a large bean, aud,
althought soft in texture, masses of

the nasal passages. The child cannot
breathe naturally by the nose, and
'mouth breathing" is a marked sign
of adenoid diseases. The expression

The wisdom of your advice has always been appreciated by all the societies connected with the parish,

the Knights of Columbus, organized
by your inspiration, and St. Peter's

Threaten to Divulge  Details  of Alleged Attempt to Bribe Players
to Throw Lacrosse Game*.
TORONTO, May 22.���Smarting
at the accusation made by some of
the Big Four lacrosse magnates to
the effect that they are "holdouts,"
the two Scott brothers, Henry and
Fred, two of the greatest lacrosse
players that ever lived, have threatened to give out the full details of
the attempt to bribe the last named
for a thousand dollars, the former
for eight hundred and a third player
on the Irlsh-Canadien team for an
almost equally large sum to throw
a lacrosse match.
For the present they are withholding the most important details, the
names of the men who made them
the offers and a few other things,
but if they are driven too far they
say they will not hesitate to divulge
"It was this attempt to bribe us,
that broke up the National Union,"
said Fred, who was spokesman for
himself and Henry. "The matter
Was slurred over at the time and we
are willing to forget It, If they leave
us alone, hut we will not stand by
and be called unpleasant, names when
all we ask is that if they do not want
to pay us the salary to which we
think we are entitled, they let us go
our own way."

who own property on different islands of the Gulf are founded on
I act, there is an organized gang of
thieves engaged in raiding the s'o-.k
and other belongings of the widely
separated ranches scattered along
the Coast east and north of ths city.
Few of those who have farms or
summer homes on Main, Salt Spring,
South   Pender,   Saturna  or  Prevost
Islands, have escaped, judging from
the  reports.       Those  affected,    ap-
i parently, have been worked up to a
i high pitch of indignation.    Recently,
1 it  is alleged, the depredations have
; become so general that considerable
alarm is beginning    to    be felt by
everyone  so  situated  as to be open
to the attention of the prowlers.
Besides a lot of petty thievery,
such as the lifting quantities of
rope, the abstraction of gasoline,
the carrying of axes, saws, etc.,
it is said that a quantity of stock
has been missed by several ranchers. This* complaint comes chiefly
from property holders on South Pender and Saturna Islands.
On the tatter the report is made
that the raiders have come in a

Indicate that several men were first
landed for the purpose of assembling sheep which were allowed to
run wild. Gathering all that could
be found without danger, they then
lighted a beacon. This ignal brought

with their booty, made good their
Thus far, the provincial police,
who have received some of these
complaints, have been unable to lay
their hands on the guilty parties or
find a tangible clue. However, they
have been very vigilant during the
past few weeks, and it Is confidently believed that they will be able to
place their hands on those responsible before long.

Richmond   Councillors    Again   Find
It Rising    Spectre-Like to Bar
Their Path.
CAMBIE, Lulu Island, May 20.���
It would seem tbat the municipal
hall site question is a hoodoo lor tlie
municipal fathers of 1913���at any
rate it rises up as a spectre before
them at every turn. Today it was alleged before the council that tbe circulator of the petitions, Mr. W. 13.
Buckingham, who Is employed by
the council, was Improperly influ-
cncint; signers, and that an a result
thc parties favoring the lirigliouse
site were not being given any kind
of a show. Councillor Miller, of Sea
Island, who was against tho taking
of a plebiscite on the question, declared that the council, anyway, had
absolutely no legal right to hire a
person to circulate petitions, aud
that In doing so nt the present lime
they were laying themselves open to
a surcharge in case tbe bylaws were
defeated. He qualified the statement, however, by saying that the
municipal hall question bad been
dragging en for a 'ong time with-
out any action being taken by tbe
ratepayers, and thai the council
might consider itself justified in hiring a man to get up the petitions required by statute.
The statement was made in connection with Ihe circulation of the
petitions, that it bad already been
found that the major portion of the
assessed valuation of the Islands,
was in favor of the old site, and that
even though Mr. Buckingham kept
himself busy for several weeks longer the result would not, be altered
In view of the fact that the alle
gatlons of the misconduct of Mr.
Buckingham were not made in writing to the council and wore only repeated as hearsay, it waa decided
that no notice could be taken of
them. The reeve and members of
the council were of the opinion that
Mr. Buckingham bad been fair in
circulating the petitions. The proposal was made that the petitions be
circulated for only one week more,
but the council did not vote, upon
it, simply deciding that Mr. Buckingham should continue with his
Many other matters came before
the adjourned meeting of the council. In view of the fact tbat doubt
was expressed that any of tbe Boundary road between Richmond municipality and New Westminster was
within the limits of Richmond, It
wns decided, on motion of Councillors Gay and Miller, to consult the
municipal engineers, Cleveland &
Cameron, of Vancouver. The surveyors were asked to ascertain and
report immediately whether any portion of the gazetted road was within Richmond municipality.
Engineer J. W. B. Blackman, of
New Westminster, reported to the
council that delay in connection with

Owing to the depredation of the
tent caterpillar (Malacosomo or
Clisiiocampa Americana) and the
havoc which they played last year
with the fruit trees and on account
of their being so much In evidence
in many parts of the city crawling
along tbe sidewalks, Mr. C. H.
Stuart Wade. F. R, H. S., Publicity
Commissioner of New Westminster,
wishes to draw the attention of the
residents in the city to the absolute
necessity of protecting their trees
from this pest. Mr. Wade now fears
that the city and the entire district
is even more seriously threatened
than was the case last year.
"The eggs are hatching out by the
millions, which is no exaggeration,
as a single leaf frequently contains
from inno to 2000 eggs." stated Mr.
Wade. "The usual method for the
destruction of these insects is by the
use of a torch later in the year when
they are more fully matured, as fire
is practically tbe only sure means of
controlling them. Time spent now,
however, will be a money saver as
well as a time saver, for the Insects
arc now leaving the eggs and are
about one-eighth or one-sixteenth of
an inch in length, and being congregated in the web they are easily
"As a matter of urgency each
householder shoivld look over his
trees between 5 and 7 o'clock in the
evening and wherever he sees the
tip of a branch withering or bare it
should be inspected. The insects
will be found in a web, if not too
far advanced, or, if otherwise, travelling from branch to branch. It
will be found that there is a little
belt shaped bole encircling the
branch from six to twelve inches
from the extremity and the branch
should be severed immediately below this, even to the sacrifice of
fruit buds."
,TIn handling these branches it is
particularly necessary to touch them
gently or otherwise a web is dropped
with great rapidity and the little
grub falls from the branch to another portion of the tree or on the
ground thereby spreading the devastation in the same manner as if the
larvae (caterpillar) were allowed to
mature in its original place of incubation. The best method is to hold
a receptacle���a pan, for Instance,
underneath, before the branch ls
touched, thus catching any of the
falling insects and preventing their
"In cutting the branch a pair of
sharp scissors or knife should be
used and all leaves thaf are curled
up or discolored should be removed
as far as possible without delay. Any-
such cuttings should be destroyed by
fire, and if not too far advanced the
trees should be sprayed and the
stems painted with one of the ln-
sectides recommended by the provincial government, a list of which
ls placed for the information of enquirers in the Board of Trade room
at the city hall.

the most careful and thorough Investigation extending over a period
of seven months, she does not know
where a man is better cared for.
The surroundings she describes as
of a wholesome character and that
there was no temptation for a man
to spenod his wages. At the end of
a year she considers a man can save
sufficient for a homestead, opportunities of which can be found no
where In the world equal to those
north of this city. In the report she
states she would earnestly advise
any man of stamina who Is today
eking out a miserable existence In
the cities of the Enst, every day Hoping him grow older and becoming
loss Independent from an economic
standpoint to cast In Ills lot with this
new country.
After leaving Edmonton and arriving at the camps, usually a few
minutes before the meal time, without anyone knowing she was to visit
thorn, she ate a number of meals
with the men, and wns amazed with
the cleanliness of the camps, particularly with the variety of food
served. In spite of the fact that the
majority of mon employed were foreigners, and unaccustomed to oven
the meagre social requirements of
camp life, because of the excellent,
and thorough supervision given
them they were required to take
care of themselves even when they
did not have the sense to do so.
She goes on to say that the hospitals were clean nnd well conducted
with  a  corps of physicians equal  to
second. Even cherry and pear trees
are found to be affected, but not to
the same extent as the others mentioned. The flowering currant
(Aribes) is also being very badly attacked this spring and unless steps
aro Immediately taken In every garden the fruit supply will be very inferior In quality and probably absolutely useless. It therefore becomes the duty of every householder
to take action without delay as by
his neglect neighbors will suffer and
the reputation of the city as a fruit
growing district, impaired.
"The foregoing remarks apply not
only to New Westminster but to
every nart of tho lower mainland,
for It has been found that caterpillar eggs are on the undergrowth In
the woods and farms of all part of
the valley, which fact Is being
brought to the attention of the government."
