,\ prominent place in the gallery
freak pet keepers should be accorded several I.adner boys, who
have captured in the giain barns
ild and young mice and tamed them
- i such an extent that they can. be
handled without fear, even by the
misses. Some of these boys called
at The Times office recently and en-
quired facetiously if there were any
ate to be driven away. They held
their favorite pets in leash by pieces
ol twine attached to the tails of the
rodents, and at the moment the
:.. e believed they were reachifig
sweet liberty in our waste paper
basket, taut would become the string
and the small animals would find
'.hemselves In midair, apparently defying all laws of gravity.
"Wee.   sleeklt,   cow'rin,   tim'rous
0 ��hat a panic's in thy breastie!"
The boys say that it is a simple
matter to catch the mice in great
numbers among the oats, and that
thi taming nnd training of the ro-
dents is a comparatively easy affair.
Perfect haying weather nas caused
the farmers of the Delta to wear u
bioad smile, all this week. Commencing on .Monday, when only a
small number oiled up the machines
and began to cut, the number of
haymakers has constantly increased.
Haying is now general. .Much hay
has been cut, much is on the ground,
much is in the heap, anu a considerable amount ls in the barn. In
about a week hay baled In the field
will be ready for shipment to Vancouver and  other points.
Tliu hay crop this year is considered a good one and up to, or better
than the average. There are many
fields of lirst-elass timothy, which
will secure the top of the market In
Vancouver next winter, and there is
much good clover. Ol course, there
are the lower grades, too. What
prices the market will afford this
fall and winter can only be guessed
as yet, but It is safe to say that all
ot the local crop will be disposed of,
as was the case the past year.
Predictions that much of the hay
would be mouldy as a result of the
abnormally wet weather which preceded the present fair spell have
thus far provtd wholly incorrect, and
if good weather continues the crop
will be harvested in very good condition. All the farmers are busy in
the fields now and Ladner is a very
quiet place In consequence.
Laborers in the hayfields are being paid $2.25 and $2.50 a day,
with board. The ranchers are perfectly willing to pay this figure to
good workmen, although laborers
are to be had in plenty throughout
the Lower Mainland this summer.
Other farm crops are reported to
be doing very well. Potatoes are
making good progress and there will
be a large yield. Early potatoes are
being sold for $30 a ton.
The oat crop is not expected to
reach the high average set in this
All Kinds of Fruits and Vegetables Will Be Dried and
Packed by Duscheny Packing
What may expand into an industry of large dimensions, proving of
inestimable benefit to the Delta in
the development of its agricultural
possibilities, is p-)W being established
on the waterfront, near McLelan's
mill, by the Duscheny PacKing Company, of Vancouver, for whom Mr.
George .1. Turner is manager. In
the space of two weeks this coni��.iiiy
will begin the operation of a drying
or evaporating plant here, with machinery Which will dispose of four
tons of green vegetables or fruit
daily. The dried output, from this
consumption will bo half a ton each
day  In  the  week.
In this drying factory all kinds
of vegetables and all kinds of fruits
and berries, from potatoes lo blackberries and prunes, may be dried,
packed and disposed of for the domestic and northern trade.
In an interview with the Delta
Times, this week, Mr. Turner, who,
by the way, has had years of experience in the fruit belts of California and is an acknowledged expert
on the subject, his articles often appearing in the agricultural press,
stated that the Duscheny company
had leased a space fifty fepf by forty
from the McLelan Lumber Company
in which to commence operations,
but that if the returns proved as satisfactory as expected, this floor
space would be largely increased
next year. Carpenters aie now at
work finishing the drying and packing rooms, and the drying machinery
will probably be set up next week.
In two weeks time the first vegetables will be dried,
This summer and fall the company expects to dry principally the
soup vegetables���potatoes, carrots,
turnips, etc., though some apples
and other fruits may be utilized.
Potatoes will be the vegetable con-
verted Into the dried product during
t!i -  first  week of operation.
Mr,   Turner   emphasizes   the   fact!
that   the   success   of   the   company's
venture hero will depend to a great
extent   on   the   farmers.      lie  states I
that  the  Impression    which    exists
in     many    places    that     any     variety,   any  grade,   any   size   of   vegetable   or   fruit   may   be   dried   sal
factorily,   from   a   commercial   point
Of view,  i.s grossly erroneous.     Only j
certain    varieties    of    potatoes,    In i
which   the   proportion   of   starch   is
correct,   for   instance,   can   be   used
with   profit,   and   the   same   is   true
of  the   other   vegetables  and   fruits.
However, no difficulty should be ex- i
perlenced on this point, for the com-;
pany   will  stand   ready  to  advise  the i
fanners on every point.
Labor-saving   machinery   will   be,
used,   so   that   the   number   of   men
employed  at  first  will  not be  large. I
Four   men   will  be  employed   in   the |
drying   room,   and   ns   soon   as   the
packing   begins,   twelve   more   employees will be added.    If the man-j
agemant   is  able   to   secure  them. I
ihese will be white girls, and it will |

it is expected to, the number of per-;
sons   employed   next   year   will   be,
considerably larger. I
The establishment of a factory at |
Ladner by the Duscheny company Is
a tribute to tho hi?h repute In which
the Delta district is held. For
some time the company has had a
warehouse in Vancouver, and when
it decided to establish a factory it
looked over the field very carefully.
New Westminster and the adjacent,
territory was covered, but the choice
fell  to Ladner.
The prospects for the company's
success would seem to be good, for
In addition to the fact that they
have in the Delta a steady and reliable source of supply, they have in
British Columbia and the North a
good market. It is the only company in BritiBh Columbia using the
Bound for Port  Mann  With a Cargo
of Steel  Hails���Assistance
Prom Dredges.
The Norwegian steamer Herakles,
bound from Sydney, N. _.->,, with a
cargo of steel rails for Port Mann,
went aground while attempting to
enter the Fraser river Monday evening, and on Thursday evening was
still aground, with the hope expressed that the rising of the tide
would enable its being removed before morning. Longshoremen from
Vancouver were out on Thursday
lightering the boat.
The Herakles, which was being
piloted by Capt. Carter, of New
Westminster, is a large cre.lt, in fact
one of the largest which has ever attempted to navigate the waters of
the South Arm. Already over a
week overdue, the delay at the
mouth of the river has been a serious   inconvenience.
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday several tugs, including the Salvor and the Progressive, together
with the government dredges, King
Edward and Fruhling, and the snag-
boat Samson, assisted at various
times in an effort to get the ship
off the bar, but without success. The
Herakles draws over twenty-three
feet of water, and this, with the
fact that the shifting of the sands
constantly changes the channels at
the mouth, led to the miscalculation

1 HASH, B.C., July 16.���A oold
bu I unsuccessful attempt to rob the
Imperial bank here on Thursday was
frustrated by the coolness of the
". G. W. Staats. During the
morning, a man entered the bank,
apparently to transact some business.

Twelve traps, illegally placed in
the Puget Sound fishing district of
the state of Washington have been
closed down by order of the government and must be removed and replaced before they can be operated,
accordinp- to advices received in this
city. These traps are estimated to
have cost over $100,000 to erect
and the loss of time, and consequently fish, to the owners while rebuilding them will be large. It is doubtful if they can be replaced in time
for this season's run. The officials
declined to give out the names of

On Tuesday there was a large scow
loaded with waste wood frojn a sawmill hitched In lhe waterfront. It.
was bound for a cannery and the
wood was fuel. The wooil was tho
cargo, but on top of it there wero
camped several Indian families. An
aged baby buggy was included among
the effi cts. The buggy waa aged,
not the baby. There was no sign,
of the scow starting but the Siwashee
obviously did not mind whether the
tug came along In two minutes or in
two weeks.
On Wednesday (yesterday) afternoon, a picturesque band of Lytton
Indians arrived on the waterfront.
Orange and red and other colored
handkerchiefs decorated the heads
of the klootchmen, and babies ware
carried in the good old style on their
backs in shawls. They even talked
Chinook, which bas been falling into
disuse among local Indians of late
years. It ia embarrassing to greet
an Indian with "Klahowya tilllcum"
and have him reply, "Well, how are.
you this morning. Isn't It a nice
mild winter we are having this summer? 1 haven't been getting my
British Columbian very regularly
lately." It is embarrassing. The
Chinook is discarded, the more readily because It is about exhausted,
and the smiling native son is assured
that the matter will be taken up and
tbat if lie finds himself still dissatisfied he should ring up 27 and get
it straightened out.
A funny thing happened on the
waterfront on Tuesday when some,
two score Chinamen came down the
river on the Beaver and were to have
gone on to Steveston to a cannery
there. The boss Chinaman thought
he could beat the Trader's price for
conveying bis men down river and
went to t,he T). C. Electric to bargain for a special car. While he was
bargaining the Trader sailed without
his gang, which wns due that day
at tbe cannery.    And he did not get
his price on the special car either.
With true Asiatic lack of apparent
emotion the whole bunch picked up
their typically Chinese impedimenta
and sought the shades of Chinatown
to wait for next day. They didn't
care anyway. Help is only too scarce
in the canneries this season and a
few cuss words from the foreman,
merely as an outlet to his feelings
and a help to his self respect, were
all the results that could be anticipated. Resides, as far as the coolie
was concerned, his labor had been
contracted for by the Chinese contractor for the season and he stood
to lose nothing by missing a day. On
the contrary he was a holiday ahead
in the delights of Chinatown, delights which he had missed for some
time ; i!. - particular gang had been
recruited  from  up the valley.
Probably few New Westminster
i ��� ople ever fake the trouble to investigate their own waterfront, at
any time, lint during the fishing season at all events it. is kaleidoscopic
and possesses more human interest
than any other portion of the city.

j den scheme.
On Sea Island about fifteen hund-
I red acres, half the area of the island,
j is rented to the Chinese at from $20
to $40 an acre. On Lulu Island,
the Chinese acreage is not quite so
large, though from the Lulu Island
railway cast long the North Arm to
the No. 0 road many acres are tilled
by the Orientals. If, as is predicted, half of the Chiense gardeners
should give up their land this fall, it
will mean a big change in farming
conditions in Richmond, where, of
late years, the white farmers have
mostly contented themselves with
growing hay, oats and spuds, leaving the growing of market produce
to the Chinese.
EBURNE, Sea Island, July 14.���
"If the crops this year prove no more
profitable than they wore last, then
half of the Chinese farmers in Richmond will go out of business."
This prediction of a local farmer,
made to a representative of The British Columbian today, expresses a
feeling which is prevalent In many
places on Lulu and Sea Islands this
summer. Tho Chinese gardeners
themselves, who are better prepared
than anyone else to speak of the
matter, keep their own counsel, but
it Is no secret that many of them
were far from satisfied with their
pecuinary returns last year, and
with unfavorable weather obtaining
throughout this spring and summer,
with the crops in no better condition
than they were the second week in
July, 1912, there would seem to be
some ground for the opinion that
many will go out of the business this
"The Chinese gardener is too
small a person to crop a large acreage of land successfully," continued the farmer above quoted. "When
he has five to ten acres in bis charge
he does very well, but when he undertakes to farm Intensively fifty
and even a hundred acres, as many
are doing this year In Richmond, he
Is getting beyond his depth. He
uses no labor saving machinery, and
with hand labor the cropping of one
hundred acres proves to be more
than he can profitably attend to.
Especially is this so in a year like
the present, when the stason was
very late in starting and continued
rains have from the start severely
handicapped the crops."
In 1912 the local Chinese gardeners planted a large acreage to
potatoes, and though, because of
iheir proximity to market, they escaped the consequences which were
visited upon many Fraser Valley
spud specialists, still they made
practically nothing upon the crop.
This year they have given potatoes

EBURNE, July 12.���Eburne is in
the throes of a leper scare, following
in format ion furnished the Point Grey
medical health officers yesterday
morning by an unknown Chinaman
who has since disappeared. The
leprous man is alleged to have lived
In the Wing Kee store and rooming
house on Fourth street, opposite the
Gordon block, and to have tied only
yesterday morning when discovered.
He had told his countrymen that he
was suftorlng from Chicken pox.
Considerable mystery surrounds
the matter, although Chief of Police
Simpson states emphatically that he
Is inclined to the opinion that, the
leper exists, and may now perhaps
be in hiding near Eburne. Yesterday forenoon, an unknown Chinaman, furnishing government credentials, called at the oftice of the
medical health officer, Dr. W. K.
Hall, and not finding Dr. Hall at
home, informed Mrs. Hall that he
had discovered the leper in the Wing
Kee establishment. Ho declared
that he had seen the man fifteen
years before when disease only affected his hands, but that now it
had spread to his face. The man
gave similar.information to Dr. Hall
over the telephone, and then left.
He has not been seen since.
When the health officer, shortly
after noon, visited the Wing Kee
store, he found only two Chinamen
there, neither of whom was leprous.
Sixteen to twenty Chinamen live at
the house.
Eburne i3 aroused over the matter,
for the Wing Kee store, which deals
In groceries, poultry and produce,
has sold considerable of the last
named to white familes, among
whom there is fear of the disease
being contracted.

He said further that in the matter

He also made clear his view that

the battle of tlle Boyne. The fighting lasted two bours, and was quelled only after the police charged the
mobs repeatedly. Many persons
were injured.

BELFAST, July 12.���Orangemen
all over Ireland and Great Britain
are today celebrating the 223rd anniversary of the battle of the Boyne-
which, fought July 1 (old style calendar) Itf.O, resulted in the final
overthrow of the last British
Catholic  monarch,  James  II.
Naturally the greatest demonstrations are being held in the province
of Ulster, and In view of the imminence of tlie enactment of the* Irish
Home Rule Bill, considerable religious and partisan bitterness is displayed. Fearing collisions between
Nationalists and Orangemen, the
military authorities had taken stringent precautions for the preservation of order, and General Count
Gleiclien, King George's cousin, who
commands the troops in Belfast, had
his men confined to barracks iii-
rcadiiiess for emergencies, whl.e-
strong detachments of local police
and the Royal Irish Constabulary
were posted at  strategic points.
Nationalist leader John Redmond
has warned his follower;; not to do
anything likely to provoke trouble. I
and to prove by their conduct tha*
the Orangemen's fears of religious
persecution when Home Rule becomes law are unfounded. The
spirit of the Orangemen, however,
Is such that these peaceful overtures
have been rejected and the authorities are afraid they will "start1
something" before the day is out.

The principal Ulster demonstration was held here, and thousands

In the Dominion census and
Statistics onthly for June appears a suggestive article on the success of the movement to place British town lads on the farm lauds of

l/or, the article reads, constitutes
one of the greatest of tbe difficulties
Of Canadian farming. Labor saving
inventions and appliances have been
adopted to au extent formerly undreamed of; but still, both East and
West, the demand In Canada for
farm help remains constant and unsatisfied. Consequently any well
advised scheme for increasing the
supply of farm helpers In Canada
should and doubtless would receive
every possible encouragement aud
During tbe past three years experimental efforts have been put
forth in England to place on farms
in the Overseas Dominions carefully
selected lads who are willing to exchange town life in England with
its lo*w wages and uncertain prospects for the more healthy conditions
(combined with hard work) and the
brighter prospects of farm life in the
new countries of the empire. The
movement is directed by a committee in the east of London, composed
largely of persons specially Interested in social schemes for the welfare
of young men.
In 1911, fifty lads of ages ranging
from 16 to 20 years were placed on
farms In New Zealand under arrangements made wlthjhe New Zealand government. The experimentls
reported to have proved a success,
the lads, with few exceptions, "making good" to the mutual satisfaction
of employers and employed. During
their first year the lads were reported to bave earned a total sum of $5,
413, an average of about $2.50 per
week per head, and in addition 35
of them were found in clothes and
lodging by their employers. All the
boys, with the exception of three
who absconded, repaid the amount
of their fares to New Zealand from
tho earnings of their first year's
Last year 50 lads were brought
out to Canada and placed on farms,
ln Ontario, and letters received from
many of them Indicate satisfaction
with their new life.
The classes of lads available for
migration from large cities and
towns In Great Britain to other parts
of the Empire include telegraph messengers, van boys and lads employed in shops, offices, warehouses and
factories, who often are unable to
obtain any increase of wages after
16 or 17 and whose prospects of permanent employment of a remunerative character lesen when they most
need it.
Although having no practical acquaintance with farm life, the city
experiences of the lads have quickened their Intelligence, and they are
able speedily to adapt themselves to
the conditions of life ln a new country. The results of the more or less
tentative experiments already made
would seem to indicate the desirableness of concerted action on a larger
scale with a view to securing a
properly organized migration to Canada of idigible British lads as farm
The fact that the chlpf inspector

Counsel for Hank    Robber    Suspect
Figliling  Every  Inch of  Way
���Iniere-ting Evidence,
(From The British Columbian.)
The deff nee scored tt decided
point in the MacNamara case at the
assizes Thursday when a crown
witness identified a newspaper photo
show n him as Martin Powell. It
was a picture of Bob Barnum the
autoist. Otherwise the proceedings
were not very lively. Mr. T, J. Trapp,
two sons and a nephew, gave evidence as to the auto being taken out
ot the garage and Miss Wise described the noises she had heard.
After this evidence the crown played
the trump card Mr. Greenwood who
swore positively to seeing MacNamara, Dean and Powell at the junction of Royal Oak avenue and Westminster road al 7 o'clock on the
morning of the robbery.
"At last we get to the MacNamara
case," was Sir Charles Hibbert Tup-
per's comment when Mr, McNeill
called the last witness of the day
at the Assize Court yesterday afternoon. "Of course It's all Mr, Mac-
Neiti's fault,'1 commented his lordship with a smile, "He took us to
Detroit," replied Sir Charles. Not.
only were those present taken to
Detroit bul they dodged backwards
and forwards from New York to New-
West minster, from Los Angeles to
Vancouver and then to Detroit, finishing up in the Royal City. Counsel for the defence were constantly
on the alert but both Mr. Phipps and
Mr. Ferguson stood the test of a
lengthy searching cross-examination
well. The case has now arrived at
the "auto" stage and the end of
the week may see it completed.
Mr. Phipps Resumes-
Mr, Phipps resumed his place in
the witness box after lunch. He was
dining with Mr. Brymner on September 14, 1911, and he looked into
the club about midnight on his way
homo. Shortly before one he passed
the bank and looked in and all seemed well. The staff at the bank was
A. L. Annandale, R, L. Bell, N. J. H.
Brown, (J. D, Brymner, .1. F. Gillam,
H. C. Graham. B. W. Hayne, A. II.
Bovd. .1. 10. Lester, W. H, G. Phipps,
H. T. Reid, A. R, SelJery, E. D.
Shadwell, J. T, Shepherd, E. S. Shannon, W. D. Todd, J. M. Turner and
the Chinaman. They were still in
the bank's office at New Westminster with thc exception of the following transferred to other branches:
R. L. Bell to Montreal, N. .1. H.
Brown to Port Haney, J. F. Gillam
to Winnipeg, .1. E. Leslie to Chilliwack, H, T. Reid to Vancouver, J.
T. Shepherd to Kamloops. C. S.
Shannon to Cloverdale, and W. D.
Todd to Winnipeg, and J. M. Turner,
who had left the bank's service and
was now, it is believed, in tbe employ of tho City of Victoria. Mr.
Phipps denied tbat any money had
been received which had not been
mentioned publicly. He also denied
all knowledge of Chinamen arrested
in Seattle, Bellingham er anywhere
else. Sir Charles' cross-examination
was ch'efly directed to an attempt
to trace inaccuracies and discrepancies between the various statements on examination of Mr. Phipps.
The total amount paid by the bflnl*
for rewards was $4,885.10. Mr.
Black of the Detroit police, rectUleTI,
produced the register of the Griswold
hotel Detroit, and after the usual
forensic foray by Sir Charles, Mr
MacNelll elicited that the book had
been received from tlle chief of police in Detroit. The key taken from
Powell was No. 200. Mr. Black
went with Mr, Wilson to that room
and then
evidence constant legal objection-
were being raised by counsel for the
defence. Some of these his lordship overruled and some he sustained, it was a brilliant example of
'legal fencing, but must have been
tiresome to the jury.

Question of Ears,
In cross-examination it was some
time before witness could be Induced to speak up, and In the meantime
Sir Charles had been keeping up a
running stream of questions am',
answering them himself, until the
judge remarked that they wished to
  hear the witness and further that he

Roll of the Fashion liverv and thereafter Mr. Abeam and Chief Bradshaw called on him and lie described the man he hnd Been there. The
witness was closely cross-examined
but answered with considerable
promptitude and  smartness.
The   examination   of  this   witness
having   been   completed   court     adjourned till  10 o'clock today.
Morning  Session.
On resumption this morning Mr.
T.   I. Trnpp took the witness stand.
Mr. Trapp had lived in New Westminster continuously since 1879, He
lived at 407 Agnes street. In September. 1911, he bnd a McLaughlin
Bulck car In his garage valued at
$3000. It was painted grey and
numbered 1970. His sons had charge
of the auto, The garage was fastener] by a Yalo lock. He saw it on the
morning of :he 16th, lt bad not
been taken out with bis consent. Access could be got to the garage by
a trap door.
Cross-exntnination elicited that his
sons. Tom and Stanley, had keys of
the garage He did not think his
nephew  Frank  had a key.    No per-
Ing the am imoblle In the garage on
the evening of September 14, He
closed the small door after him on
which thi re was a Vale lock and he
11esumed It > losi d, He did not try
it. He did not try the large door.
He saw the auto next morning on
Royal avi nue betwei n the garage
and the Y. M. C, A. No one had it
out with liis consent. He found that
it had in en tampered with to the
extent of trying to run it without
the sparking plug.
Alice Wise gave evidence as to
bearing certain noises on the morning of September 16, between 4 and
6 o'clock. She was subjected to a
searching i ross-examination and kept
the court iii a continuous smile of
sympathy as site answered Sir
Charles. It was quite obvious that
Miss Wise was a match for even such
a brilliant cross-examiner as Sir
Charles Hibbert Tupper and she
scored repeatedly in her answers.
Another Iflentiflcatlon.
Mr. Thomas D. Trapp, a son of
Mr. T. -i- Trapp and Mr. Frank H.
Trapp, a nephew of Mr. T. J. Trapp,
corroborated with regard to the fact
of the automobile. George R.
Greenwood, Burnaoy, was living on
Westminster road near Royal Oak.
He was walking along Westminster
road towards the Royal Oak Hotel,
when he met an auto, two in the
front anu three in the back. The
auto was going very slow about five
miles an hour. It had no number,
no hood or side flags. The man
who was driving the auto was John
MacNamara, the prisoner in the
dock. He saw two other men who
were in the auto afterwards. Dean
in New Westminster and Powell in
Detroit. Dean raised his band to
hi3 hip, (witness here indicated a
motion like drawing a gun). He
was four or five paces from the auto
when it passed. The man driving
was MacNamara. The man standing up in the back was Charles Dean.
Dean having been brought into court
witness at this point identified him.
Consulted   His  Wife.
Cross-examined witness could not
tell what kind of clothes the defending counsel had on at the preliminary trial or tbe date. He did
not think there was anything serious in the motion Dean made at the
time. He had not had a drink that
morning. Witness explained that
he had not reported the matter until
nfter he consulted with his wife who
was in Chicago on September 15.
About twenty minutes was at this
time taken up by examination as to
whether witness had given his
phone address to his employers as
Royal   Oak   Hotel   or   Leaf's   Store.
had been taken from tiie person of
Powell. Sir Charles scored over this
wii loss by asking him the chief
characteristic of Powell and elicited
the reply "Small ears." Producing the
photo, witness had to admit that
Powell's ears were very large. A
juryman objected to Sir Charles'
method of cross-examination as unfair.
Mr, Philips, recalled, identified no-
notes said to have been found in
Powell's room as pari o' -he money
stolen from the Hank of Montreal
and which had never been in circulation.
The court adjourned till 10:30 today, it being suggested that an evening session  lip held.
Court Resumes.
When the assize court reassembled this morning there was again a
large attendance of the  public.
On Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper's
lequest Patrolman Wineberg of
Detroit was recalled. Witness was
questioned as to his statement at
the extradition proceedings and
admitted that he might not have
mentioned thp fact of seeing Powell
throw away the dollar bills. Mr. McNeil] eliqited from witness that he
had nothing "fo do with the Pinker-
tons and that when he arres.ted
Powell he had not the Bank of Montreal robbery in his mind. He arrested Powell because he saw him
passing a $10 bill and thought he
���was a counterfeiter.
Many False Clues.
Mr. Phipps of the Bank of Montreal was then recalled and Sir
Charles commenced his cross-examination by asking the production of
the insurance policies issued by
Lloyd's to the hank and suggested
that no money had been recovered
as the bank had not proved the robbery. Mr. Phipps said he believed
a payment had been made. Sir
Charles took the witness over many
of the false clues which had been
followed up and suggested that each
and every one of these might have
committed the robbery. The witness stated that each of the suspects
had been followpd out to the end and
to the satisfaction of the bank.
Three mr-n with a box near the Wigwam Inn on Burrard Inlet were
proved to their satisfaction to be
hunters and provisions were contained In the box.
Hash Blacksmith.
The acquaintance of a bank clerk
named Hunter, who was on leave at
the time of thr robbery, with a
blacksmith af Cloverdale. who had
stated  he  could  force  any safe"    in
vault and  in  the    passage  leading
to the bedroom.
Identified   by   Rags.
Mr. Leslie was the first person
communicated with and the rest of
the staff was telephoned for. Witness scored a point when Sir Charles
pressed him as to identifying gold
found in front of Dr. Walker's house.
"You presumed to identify the gold
as the property of the bank." demanded council. "Yes," said tlie
witness, "ir was in our bags sealed
w Ith the bank's seal," and ihe jury
smiled. A minute later Mr. Phipps
3n red, Sir Charles had been
attempting to shake witness as to
the possibility of four men removing 250 pounds of loot. At last
witness, who had been unshaken In
his opinion that they could, said, "If
I had the money 1 would make a
very good try to take it away with
four men  In an automobile."
Witness   admitted   that   they  bad
been pressing the Pinkertons,    The
reward in tlle Bozac case was divid-
I ed between some Vancouver police.
The reward on the money found in
: front  of Dr. Walker's    was paid to
| the  workmen.    The  reward  on  the
$8,000   handed   the   bank   by   Chief
Bradshaw   was   partly   paid  to   the
chief.    Witness promised  to produce
! definite information ns to the parties
who had  the rewards.
Ultimately witness was able to grasp i Canada, amounted to nothing lu wit-
counsel's  meaning and  repeated the ; ness' view.
Many Suspected.
He was cfosely examined as to
the Chinaman who had been In the
bank at the time of the robbery.
Witness volunteered the statement
that  the  Chinaman  was    perfectly
s'ory he h-, - ftrst given, viz., that
his phone had been Royal Oak ai(l
had changed it to Leaf's Store afterwards. He had only discussed the
matter with Mr, Ahern once. That
was at the Vancouver Hotel when
he picked out photos of MacNamara,
Dean   and   Powell. " He 'identified   a  J-0"1"*   iuul   lla'1   1)een   ,h!r,>r   "'(*ars ,

sitting late. So far not the slightest
mention has been made of Mr
Trapp's automobile, and the a

the bank robbery has only been

are not even citizens, classed with
imbeciles, convicted criminals and
children, They have little or no
recognition in a world of business,
art, letters, or thought. Their idea"
are not taken seriously. We know
that Rosa Bonheur and Madame

on account of their sex. Solomon
has described an ideal woman. He
should be able to speak with authority on this subject, as he had plentv

A  Cruel  Traffic.
In view of the letter recently sen'
out by Minnie Maddern Fiske and
George Arliss (which has not yet
been placed before your readers) i>
few words on the subject, "The
egret traffic," may    not    be amiss
Does your hat contain a species o'
plumage commonly called osprey or
aigrette? Do you know its history
and how it is obtained? If not
from now on there is no excuse for
this  display of  inhumanity.
The egret, or white heron, is
perhaps the loveliest bird on the
earth. The plumes which are desired on account of their extreme deli-
'���acy are obtained from the mother
bird, ouly during the brooding season as that is the time they are a*
their best.
The amount of plumage on each
bird is very small.
To obtain any great quantity the
birds  are  slaughtered  by  the  thou
sands and the baby birds left to
starve. Apart from the wanton
cruelty by the sacrifice of the younje
the heron bird is rapidly being decimated.
A scientific authority declares that
the osprey cannot be faithfully imitated. So it is no use soothing our
feelings by saying, "Oh, mjue are
not real ones!" or "Now I have them
it is a pity not to use them." Example is  better than  precept.
Seeing this delicate plume in your
hat may awaken a longing on thp
part of some one else to buy them-
Better throw them away than be the
indirect means of causing this terrible suffering of tlle poor little
mother bird, who writhes under the
torture and dies. Tell your milliner
in future, "I do not wish an osprey."
