NUMBER 11
HAD SUICIDE!
<.+*^(*^*<^<^"K'<^MK«M''M-*:*
Widespread regret will be felt
at the unfortunate circumstances which marked the ending ol
the earthly career ol Guy Beau-
pre Nowers, who, lor several
vears, has been well known locally as "Bob Ritchie," particulars of which were brought out
at the inquest, held bv Coroner
Diplock Thursday morning
For some lime past the deceased had been in the cmplov
ol the B. C. El. Ry. Co., in Uncapacity of motorman on the
local system. According to the
testimony of Manager Albert G.
Perry, about three weeks aj*o,
Nowers consulted him, stating
that he was not feeling well and
explaining in particular that lie
lound himself the victim of certain hallucinations, chief a-
mongst which was the delusion
that certain persons were constantly pursuing him by maligning his character. In pursuance ol this conversation, Mr.
Perry granted him a few weeks'
vacation, in order that he might
take a rest. At Mr. Perry's
suggestion, Nowers consulted a
pltvsician, who .subsequently In-
lurtm-d Mr. Perry that the deceased was suffering Irom a nervous disorder, which demanded
a rest. During the lollowing
two weeks, Nowers several
times returned to Mr. Perry's
oflice, the last time being Mon-
dav last, when he wished to return In work. Mr. Pi-rrv, however, slronglv recommended him
to take a longer vacation and
to take a trip somewhere, under
conditions that would give him
lots of fresh air and enercise,
which Nowers finallv consented
lo do.
Mr. Perrv then submitted .1
letter, which had been lell bv
the deceased, addressed to htm
The coroner likewise read a similar letter, addressed respectively lo the parents of the deal.iscd alld In Chiel of Police
Davies. In these letters his
intention lo take his own life
wa.s clearly stated, the chief
reason ascribed being tlu- slanders which had been circulated
about him. After reading the
letters, Coroner Diplock stated
lhat the only further testimony
that would be required would tie
that ol a witness, who had sonic
knowledge ol the manner ol
death.
These facts were elicited Irom
the testimony of Mr. Trundle,
who resides al Sunshine creek,
Nortli Arm. On Tuesday morning, Mr. Trundle's attention
was attracted to a skid with nu
unusually large sail, coming tip
North Arm, with a very heavy
wind blowing. His attention
was taken away Ior a lew moments and when he looked again
the boat had overturned, .nnl
lhe occupant was standing on
the keel, waving his hat sus-
pendi'il on the end of an oar as
a signal of distress He hasti
ly summoned a neighbor, Mr
McCormick, and they rowed lhc
two miles to the boat and rescued the man, who subsequentl\
gave his name as Guy Sowers
Thc boat was afterwards
broughl to land wilh one, ol llir
oars. Wednesday morning Nowers took the boat and .he one
oar and paddled down toward
Deep Cove. Later Mr. Trundle
saw him paddling across tin-
Arm. About three in the alter
noon, he re-crossed the Arm and
landed in a little bay, just l-c-
yond a blufl Irom Mr. Trundles
house. A little later Mr. Trun
die's attention was attracted
by shouting, and, looking up,
he saw Nowers standing on the
edge ol the bluff, whiih is about
loo leet high. He was shouting and waving his arms, evidently to attract the attention
of the occupants ol a small
launch which was coming down
the Arm. Thc next instant the
unlortunate young man swung
his arms as il lor a jump  and
'M'*M*"X">'M*->,.W>*,>*,H,->*M">-"'
1 leaped over the blull, falling upon thc ground below. Mr.Trundle and the occupants of the
launch hastily- made their way
I to the spot, arriving in alboul
two minutes after the leap, Mt
jlife was extinct when tliey ar-
1 rived.
The jury comprised C.E.Law-
'son, foreman, It, IV Martinson,
sr., A. J. C. Robertson, .lack
Loutet, .lohn Bailey and W. C.
HI MM II After due delibcra-
tion, a verdict of suicide while
temporarily insane, was returned.

SUNDAV BASEBALL
Editor Express:
Sir,—Regarding the baseball
niatili held last Sunday, at the
If. V. Athletic grounds, I beg to
enter my protest against the repetition of any such occurrence.
From the fact that I am living so near to the above ground
I claim a prominent right to
make this objection. 1 consider
the privacy and enjoyment ol
the Sunday completely destroyed thereby. The blatant shouts,
the dust and throng of thc multitude, rendered the use of Cite
road almost impossible to outgoing in ,111 opposite direction;
and I further umsider the value
ol ill surrounding building sites
much impaired, and this impairment will hale a deterrent eflect on the incoming of future
icsidculs.

OVERCROWDING
Bditor Kxpress:
Sir,—About six weeks ago,
(belore I had heard a whisper of
Sunday baseball) I spoke to Ms
worship the mayor about ths
danger ol carrying passengers la
excess ol the legal limit. A
transportation company is
bound to provide lor the convenience and safety of thc travelling public, and while the lirsl
point may, to some extent, In-
a matter of opinion, thc second
is fixed by law. It would, in
any case be the duty of thc city,
now that the purchase bylaws
have been passed, to exercise all
reasonable precaution in regard
to the safety of the public; bui
such precaution is doubly desirable, seeing tliat at thc present
time our liability is absolutely
unlimited. I-'or this reason a-
lone, I submit that Sunday
baseball in North Vancouver,
should not and cannot be permitted. Even without baseball
it will be difficult enough to
provide sufficient transportation
lacilities to keep within the requirements of the law. With
baseball added, it is clearly
quite impossible. The mayor
is, I understand, at present sole
manager, and a grave responsibility will rest on him il he allows the numerical limitations
imposed by lave to bc recklissh
violated. Exactly the MM
responsibility will attach to
thc provisional directors, wheu
ihi-y assume control. Speakinj*
lor myself, I wish lo make u
entirely clear, that 1 shall absolutely n-luse to remain on lhe
board, unless 1 find that my
fellow directors agree with tne
in holding that the saletv ol the
travelling public must be, anu
is, the paramount consideration
Vours, etc.,

Editor Express:
Sir,—Will you kindly publish
the enclosed excerpt, Irmn the
uduinns ol the New York World
the writer thereol being C. E.
Van Loan. The article is so
timely and has so much good
common sense about it, that 1
am sure it will tie read with interest.    Yours truly,
J. T. JONES
Vancouver, May 3, 1909.
In every city there arc many
men who take no interest 111 .inv
lorm ol sport. They never get
in thc open air and wallop a
goll ball over the green lulls
They do not care (or Imm-ImII
because they do nol understand
it. Racing in any lorm does
not appeal to them. Football
makes them ill. They shudder
at the idea ol two muscular fellows with gloves on their hands.
These people arc ill the minority
everywhere. They are never
molested by red blooded people,
who, having no appeliu- lor
pink tea, do not count it a
crime in the sedentary few. The
spnitMti.in is willing to allow
his neighbor to lead his own life
in his own way and drink pink
tea until he chokes. All he asks
in return is that his nrighl-or
shall keep his pale nose out ol
another man's business or pleasure, as the case may be.
The quiet brother is seldom as
tolerant. His idea ol a ripping
line evening's entertainment being a battle over a whist table
or a chess board with a lettuce
sandwich on thc side, he is unable to understand that another
sort ol a man might go a different route to Iind his pleasure
Then, as,a usual thing, he tries
to put the ball and chain on lus
lively neighbor. His motto is
"1 don't like these things niv-
sell, consequently you slun't
have thelll!"
The   pale,   intellectual   giant
with the bulging forehead does
not like lo see his fellows enjm
ing, themselves     He would like
to model his town on his own
narrow lines, and if permitted
to have his way in New York
City, would not stop until the
green grass grew a foot high in
the Broadway.
Do not worry about it. The
spirit of clean sport will live in
spite of all the Morris chair athletes.
There is a nation which has
never produced an athlete, i
is an old nation, but it has not
made any world history in a
thousand years. It will nut
make any in the thousand years
to come.
SUNDAY BASEBALL
Editor Express:
Sir,—It is hard to refer to
the proceedings of last Sabballi
afternoon in our city and US
teniperale language. This is
necessary, however, as our
mayor has intimated that criminal action is to be taken. Bul
there are certain aspects ol
them that call for discussion.
1. If it were nol so serious
for ourselves, we could have
smiled at thc "Bully" aspect ol
the business. Four thousand
men wanted to see, or lake part
in, a baseball game last bunday
They knew they dared not have
it in their own town. 'Ihey
lound a man over here—a Cambridge blue lorsooth—wlio was
eager to make >:oo lor hiiusell,
and ;'jn to be divided among a
few of the local youths, and
they saw their chance. Wh.it
had they to do with our civic
authorities, or our feelings, or
wishes? They were 4000 strong
and could carry all before them:
Yea they could—and about 200
ol them did—even force their
way on to the civic ferry boat
and travel over at the civic expense. All that was possible
tor them, and the Bully spirit
prevailed. Whal a splendid exhibition it made! Vancouver
must lie proud ol Ihem!
2. We are told it is lo occur
again. Are we to have the
same noble Bully band, or has
Vancouver an unlimited supply
of this genus Bully 10 send hut
by relays? North Vancouver la
small compared lo Vancouver
lor the present, bul she has noi
a few men among her citi/eiis,
and although some of tiiem are
getting old, and all are giiled
with a limited amount ol patience, trouble may arise even
in this humble place, if lhe
sanctity of our homes and the
control oi our city is to lie a-
gam seriously menaced. Fortunately, even Mr. Bully ian
lie brought lace to face with ,111
injunction, in order to presi in
the peace, and tliat is something more serious Ior him than
a mere civic police warning.
3. The suggestion has been
made that the matter ol allowing sports here on the Sabbath
day should be referred to the
citizens. What better course
can be adopted to do litis than
lor the sports champion and
counsel to resign his seal as
alderman and seek re-election.
One election has to take place
at any rate, to fill the seal vacated by Mr. Braim. II Aid.
SchulU will take this step,
which I hereby challenge hun tn
do, I promise him to meet him
as a candidate, fairly and
squarely on thc issue. In meeting him, I do so, handicapped I
know as I am, sen ing no purelv
|>crsonal purpose. I ,1111 a busv
man otherwise, and I am nm
strong physically lo fan- tin
work involved il I am NMCSSB-
lul, hut the issue Is to me, and
to many others here, one of enormous importance.
As you are aware, sir, sunn
ol us have been giving inanv nf
mir spare hours to the work nl
advertising this voung cilv,
which is our home, and which
wt- desire to make a cilv nl
many homes. Wu are about tn
issue JOajBOO copies ol a suitable
folder for distribution all QVM
the world. Do our spotting
Iriends wish us to print in largi
letters on that Inldet, "Ball
games and other sports here
every Sabbath?"
There is no man living more
anxious than I am to assist to
arrange Ior suitable athletic ex-
itiises and sports fnr out voting
men. I ollered recently, .nnl
oiler it again now, to take tin
initiative in forming a StfDBS
athletic club, with enough funds
to have .suitable grounds av.ul
able lor our young men and Im
competitive games, and 1  hau

North Vancouver's lirst May

pronounced success from every
point ol view. The lirsl requisite for such a celebration is
suitable weather, and the reality could not have been Improved

The entertainment itself was
all that could be desired. The
ladies iu charge had evidently
bestowed the must patient and
painstaking attention upon the
children in preparing them for
the occasion. Every Item was
in its place and every participant conducted himself or herself in a manner most creditable
to all concerned,
The advent of Spring and lhc
arrival of tho Hay Queen was
duly proclaimed by the heralda,
and the entire procession liled
upon the stage, falling into their
proper places, and presenting to
the audience dainty costumes
and bright faces, which well deserved the hearty applause with
which it was greeted. The
throne was placed at thc front
ol tin- stage, and ascending this
with becoming dignity, the
Queen of the May seated hersell
thereon, and was duly proclaimed, a beautiful crown oi Howci's
being placed on her head liv 1
Misses Gladys and Wilms Morden, the sceptre being presented
