{a general Bulgarian assault, says a
dispatch   received   here   from   Sofia
today.    The report Is not yet  con-
i firmed.
I Sofia and Constantinople dls-
! patches are very conflicting. The
i latter state thnt the Erkene river

| Turks have the advantage at the
eastern extremity of the hundred
mile battle front. The Bulgarians
1 have the advantage in the western
. extremity. The losses are reported
! to have been enormous.
I Powers  Will  Intervene.
I     PARIS," Oct. 31.���That in no clr-
I cumstances will the  powers  permit
! Bulgarian troops to enter Constanti-
' nople,    was    the authoritative announcement today which, diplomats
agree, may hold the kernel of grave
troubles for Europe.    The  Bulgarians, it Ib declared, have determined
to enter the Sultan's capital in any
case and the situation is tense.
In Constantinople, Ferdinand
could make his own peace terms,
and should he demand control of
the capital of Turkey, only armed
force could compel his evacuation.
The powers want to limit Ferdinand's
ambitions, and it ls reported intervention In the near future has practically been agreed upon. Messages
looking to this action today are
speeding between the various chancellories of Europe. It Is reported
here among diplomats that Servla,
Montenegro and Greece are willing
that Czar Ferdinand should be
stopped from entering Constantinople and that even Russia, Bulgaria's almost ally, ls agreeable to
intervention to prevent Bulgarian
occupation of the Turkish capital.
Reports that Turkey had landed
30,000 troops on the coast of the
Black Sea with the intention of attacking Bulgaria from the rear are
not believed here. French military
observers believe that another week

of the League���Fastest Match
of the Season.
The Westham Island football team
were defeated by the Thistles In thj
league fixture at Recreation Park,
Vancouver, on Thanksgiving Day, by
three goals to two, the Thistles thus
retaining their position at the head
of the league.
The match was one of <the fastest
played this season and the result
was in doubt at all stages. Both
teams played hard football all the
way through. In the tlrr-f half the
Thistles, probably had the better of
thc play, but the sturdy work of the
defence of the Islanders kept (the
Scotchmen at bay. The weak part,
probably, ln the team of the Islanders is their forward line, which is
poor at shooting, but the defense
will give any team a hard time of if.

Rev. A. Dunn Speaks of the Life and
Work of Some of the Kirsi Results of
Settlers of leaser Valley. Each
(From the British Columbian.)
On the occa'slon of the funeral of
the late Henry Frederick Harris, of
East Langley, which was held at
Sperling .Methodist church on Saturday, October 12, Rev. A. Dunn, who
had been acquainted with the deceased for thirty years, in referring
to Mr. Harris, gave a brief account
of the early pioneering conditions,
in the valley, which, by request, he
has handed to the British Columbian for publication and which reads
as  follows:
My acquaintance with tbe deceased. Henry Frederli 1* Harris, is of
about 30 years' ���standing. I had
beeu In Langley som,> seven or eight
years previous to his arrival. On
the 29th day of last month 1 met
him for the last time in New Westminster, but only for a short time.
He then looked as bright aad well
as ever. During the last twenty-six
years our paths have led in different
directions, crossing each other at
long distances apart. Hut when we
met, the same friendly feeling which
bad originated thirty years ago was
found to be still in existence. It
could hardly be expected that I could
perform the journey in an electric
car. from New Westminster to this
part of Langley municipality with
the greatest ease, comfort and dispatch, without contrasting it with
the drawn-out, laborious journeys of
the early days, through mud and
water, around 'stumps and fallen
timber. Of course parts of the roads
are still  bad enough,  owing chiefly,
however,  to heavv  traffic,  but  then Adams, Box 840. Victoria, B.C.

the way from Kltsy to St. Mary's
Mission. On those days at least, he
felt he was within sound, if not
within sight, of civiliaztion of some
kind.
Then, singularly enough, it
wns a rare thing to meet a person,
though living in the bush, and out
of sight of any neighbor'^ house,
who complained of homesickness.
There were complaints about the
rain and the roads, etc. And if
anyone, who had .the means, went
back to the home he had left, the
result generally was that he soon
returned a wiser, if poorer, man, and
contentedly settled down on the spot
which he had formerly spoken disparagingly of. So that there must
have been, even then, when nature
appeared in Its roughest and most
primitive state, a certain charm or
fascination which few, having once
felt, could resist. For eight or ten
years the state of tho country remained ln a certain respect almost
at a standstill. Few new settlers
came In, and the stay of others who
had come ln to view the land, expecting to find it. a veritable paradise, was so fleeting that their very
names and complaints, at this distant date, are all but forgotten. Old
timers of whom, alas, few remain,
may be heard saying that the newcomers of the present day can never
know the meaning of "roughing it,"
in all Its depth and comprehensiveness. Just think, for example, of
this Harris family, building their
log house, slowly, laboriously, clearing a small patch In which to grow
potatoes, the absence of a reliable
market, the state of the road to
Fort Langley, Langley Prairie and
New Westminster; tlle lack of so!

lea  to  which   tbey  had   been   accus-j
ment, he said, proposed to keep on
moving along to carry out the
policy of railway development which
the mandate of the people In the last
election had given them.
The same progress would be seen
in regard to public works. Where
ln 1904 the appropriation for public roads had been $400,000, last
year it was $6,000,000. This year's
estimate will be generous also. He
replied to criticism of the government road policy by pointing out
the*valiie of letting the work by public contract, and said that the government got dollar for dollar on all
expenditures with equal treatment
for Liberal or Conservative who bid
on the work.
Mr. Ross, minister ot lands,* had
been active in developing a policy of
conservation of the natural resources
and the crown lands sold brought
millions into the treasury and settlement to new places. The government's Interests In railway and
other townsltes alone represented
millions saved to the people. The
government deserved great credit for
the Prince Rupert Townsite deal,
where the recent sale of fractional
lots netted over $2,000,000. There
was also a larger reserve on Point
Grey to draw on. ,
The purchase of the Songhees reserve at Victoria had  secured  ade-
benedts  which  such    a  progressive
programme would ensure.

Opens Up New Phase of Agriculture
That, Will Prove Best in the
Province.
VICTORIA, Oct. 29.���Hon. W. R.
Ross, Minister of Lands, has received from Professor. J. C. Elliott, the
expert, who accompanied him on his
recent trip through the Cariboo and
Chllcotin country, a detailed report
to the conditions existing there. That
report is most gratifying as proving
that in that section the province
possesses thousands of acres that
present a wonderful field for develop-
men.
"I believe," says Mr. Elliott, "I
am glad in saying that the proper
development of the dry land areas
of British Columbia will open up a
phase of agriculture that will prove
the best developed agricultural
branch In the province today. I, of
course, do not mean that the dry
land will be developed at the expense
of any existing Industry, but it will
be the development of a new agriculture that will add thousands of
hom��:s to the population of the province and may rank ln commercial
Importance with any existing agricultural Industry."
The professor points out that the
dry land is not eonflned to the Carl-
boo and Chllcotin districts, which
are about 150 miles square, but is
also to be found ln the Nicola District in an area of some eighty square
miles, whilst there are many square
miles of areas in the Okanagan Valley and the Kettle River country.
There are the large areas in the
Kootenay as well.
But perhaps the most important
point of the report is that It indicates
a future great source of food supply
for the people of the coast cities and
established by any responsible party, (towns  of  the    province.    Professor

��� Not one had been impotent. All had j
; orlsinated satisfactory and useful
legislation, and lie    expected    these!
Elliott points out that the line of the
Pacific Great Eastern will traverse
through the country mentioned, saying in  this connection:
"This vast district will be found
admirably adapted to dairying, cattle
nnd horse raising, hog raising, sheep
raising, seed grain production and
the production of general farm produce. With the coming of the railroad and the incoming of vast numbers of settlers, prices and general
farm conditions will be splendid for
long years to come. The Pacific
Great Eastern Railway will give an
outlet to the Coast, where the opening of the Panama Canal ls bound to
draw traffic. Thus a dense population on the Coast will provide a
wonderful market for all kinds of
fnrm produce."
In conclusion Professor Elliott,
jwho Is the superintendent of the
agricultural branch of the Canadian
Pacific Hallway Natural Resources
Department, predicts that "at no distant date It will become of tremendous Importance both commercially
and from the standpoint of settlers."

THE COUNTY COURT.
Five Prisoners in County Court Elect
for Jury Trials at the Assizes.
NEW WESTMINSTER, Oct. 3L���
Elections were made by five prls-
courts in the county court before
His Honor Judge Howay and dates
for hearing civil actions were set.
George McPhease, the 17 year old
boy charged with having in his possession a gold nugget stick pin
known to have been stolen, who was
committed for trial in the local police court last week by Magistrate
Whiteside, elected for trial by Jury.
Judge Howay explained to the prisoners that by electing for jury trial,
their cases would be disposed of even
more speedily than should they elect
for speedy trial. The boy told the
court that he had no one to appe'ar
for him, and that he did not nave
any friends or relatives to take care
of his interests.
Jury trial was also chosen by An
tonlo Caghlerel, the Italian committed from the police court here on
the charge of stealing $70 from
Lena Desjardin.
Mr. J. P. Hampton Bole asked for
bail for Ganeschl Singh, and Lai
Singh, two of the three Hindus who
are being held ln connection with
the finding of Maru Singh desperately -wounded near the Small & Buck-
lln mills, while Mr. C. L. Filmore of
Vancouver, appearing for Had Singh
asked for bail also. Judge Howay
fi-ed the amount at $1000, two securities. This brought the county
court to a close.

Ol-YMPIA. Vvash.. Oct. Si���Ac-!
cording to the report of State Labor Commissioner C. P. Hubbard,
made public today, tho cost of living in 1912 has been much lower
than In 1910 in this state. Ot a
number of the more important commodities of every day use the climax of high prices appears to have
been reached in the year 1910. In
that year, wheat flour, first grade,
was quoted at $6.15 per barrel as
against $3.25 ln 1900, the first
year for which prices were secured.
In 1911 'flour had dropped %l from
tbe previous year and for 1912 the
ruling price, when the tabulations
wero prepared, was $4.55. Second
grade flour shows a similar variation. Starting at $2.95 in 1900 the
price gradually soared until it
touched $5.90 in 1910. In 1911 it
dropped down to $4.90 and in 1912
it was $4.40.

Montesano, commissioners, Mr.
Palterron  is president of the board.
Mr. Coderre, It Is Understood, Will
Administer Klines as Well as
State Department.
OTTAWA, Oct. 30.���The reorganization of the Cabinet was concluded
yesterday, when Mr. Coderre waa
sworn In the Privy Council and took
the oath of office as Secretary of
State and when Mr. Rogers and Mr.
Roche were sworn in as ministers of
their new portfolios. The Prime
Minister, the retiring Secretary of
State and Mr. Coderre drove out to
Rideau Hall at 12:30 and the ceremony of swearing in took place before
His Royal Highness. A feature of
the ceremony waB the handing over
of the Great Seal of Canada to the
new secretary, Mr. Coderre. With
Mr. Rogers and Dr. Roche the ceremony was simpler as they are already
privy councillors, and it sufficed to
take the oath to administer their
new departments before the Clerk of
the Privy Council.
It is understood that the Depart
ment of Mines, which was transferred to the Minister of the Interior
about a year ago, will be transferred
to the Secretary of State, so that Mr.
Coderre will administer the Secretary
of State Department, the Archives
Department and the Department of
Mines, which includes the geological
survey. It Is worthy of note that
Mr. Coderre Is the first French-Ca-
nidinn to become Secretary of State
fince tho days of Sir Adolphe Chap-
li-fMi. Another distinguished predecessor of his was Sir John Macdonald,
who held this portfolio.
Mr. Rogers will move Into his new
office tomorrow. He was Minister
of Public Works In Manitoba and so
will bring experience In addition to
his well known energy and executive
ability to a very exacting and laborious department.
Dr. Roche will bring to ths office
of Minister of the Interior, good ex
ecutlve ability aud wide knowledge
of Western conditions,
' It is understood' that Mr. Pelletler
was offered the portfolio of Public
Works, but believed that his action
in accepting it at the present juncture might be misunderstood; further, he had been taking deep Interest in the work of the post office and
has legislation affecting lt to* bring
before parliament at the coming
session.
Opposition to New Minister.
At a meeting of the Cabinet yesterday, November 19 th was tha
date fixed for the by-election ' In
Hochelaga Division, Montreal, rendered necessary by the acceptance by
Mr. Louis Coderre of the portfolio of
Seoretray of State.
Nominations will take place Tuesday, November 12th, the writ being
returnable on November 25th.
On September 21, 1911, Mr. Coderre had a majority of over 1300,
the English vote in the municipality
cf Westmount, which forms a part of
the division of Hochelaga, going
almost solidly against Mr. Rivet, the
former Liberal member, on the reciprocity issue.
The expectation, here tonight is
that despite Mr. Coderre's large ma<
jorlty at the general elections, there
will be a contest.
Col. Geo, Washington Stevens, who
recently resigned as chairman ot the
Montreal Harbor Board, is mentioned
as a possible Liberal candidate, hut
lt is considered more likely tbat a
French-Canadian will be chosen to
carry the Opposition standard.
The "Evening Citizen," In dealing
witb the Cabinet changes says:
"It ls understood that Mr. Pelle
tier was offered the portfolio of Pub
Ho Works, but believed his action ln
accepting that department might be
misunderstood at the present June
ture and as he had been taking a
deep interest in the work of his department which offers so many opportunities for progress and successful administration he has preferred
to retain, for the present, the portfolio of rosU.ia-to. Gonorai.
"While there is nothing official,
yet the changes are understood to
strongly favor the selection of Mr. A.
0. Doyce, M.P., for West Algoma, as
Solicitor-General, a position not yet
filled by the present government."
