Whitefield Charged With Attempted Murder - Admit*
Placing Powder But Denies Intent to Kill,
At tbo city ball this morning Mayor
UcNoisb and Ur. J. J. Woodi, J.P. listened to the evidence connected wltb
tie charge of attempted murder lev.
iod against Philip Wbitoflold, a negro
of tali city. Tbo victim ii Claude
Hale, anothor colored man, wbo some
little time ago fell while working on
tbe Lousdale Theatro, and still walks
witb tbe aid of crutcbei.
It nppoara that on Sunday morning
at about 1.80 a loud explosion resembling a blast awoke tbe uoighbori iu tbo
vicinity of Ilale'i houso on Ith itroot,
' uext to the Knigbti of Pytbiai ball on
Chesterfield avonue. Constables Weir
and Shannon thought it emanated from
tbo direction of tbo St. Alice hotel, but
on investigation found tbat tbo thick
iu which Halo lived alone had boon half
wrecked hy a heavy charge of presumably stumping powder placed under-
neiiih and ignited. Hale had been in
bed at the time but bad escaped injury.
There wu a large hole t'nrougb the
bedroom floor through wbicb ono of
tbe legi of the bed bad slipped, while a
large stone was embedded iu tbo coiling
aud everything in the house upset and
all tbe windowi broken. Later invciti-
gation proved tbit tbe concuuion broke
many windows in tbo Pytbian null aud
did some damage to wigon topi belonging to tho North Vancouvor Cartage
Company. Under the houso there is a
two-foot ipace between the Aoor and
the ground which bad not been boarded
up. Wben aaked if bo bad any luipi-
cious ai to who migbt bavo committed
tbe crime, Hale mentioned Wnltofleld,
wboie borne was on tho corner of 4th
and St, Andrew. Tbo police hurried
thither, but under cover of darkness
Whitcfiold effected an eicape. One of
the constabloi fired a round of ammunition but, not heeding tbem tho msn
mado for tbe creok to tbe oast, paying
no attention to tbe officers warning
shots, and bid, later going to a home
on First itreet occupied by a man named Brimacombe where he was afterward! located and arrested.
At tbis morning'i bearing tbe prose-
c 111 ion wis conducted by Ur. E. Udncr.
The accused, who was not roprciented
by couhicl, pleaded not guilty to the
charge of attempted murder..
Claude Hale aaid that he bail known
Whitefleld about a year; tbey had at
one time lived togetbor. On the uight
of tbe oxploaion he waa alone in tbo
bouie. Tbe witness examined a photo
graph of tbe mbwquout devastation and
pronounced tbo acono to be exacUy ty
he remembered il aftor tbo incident.
Other article! were produced for identification by Halo, one being lbc itone
wbicb wai found in tho ceiling and an
other being a fragment of tin whicii tbe
force of tho oiploiion bad embedded iu
tbe wall of tbe Knigbti of Pythias
Hall. Hale uext alluded to a colored
woman named Gertrude Undaway, who
bad been coining to bii iback iu tbo
moruingi to do bli cooling and tidying
for him. It wai froui wbat ibe bad
•aid tbat ho conncctod Wbitoflold witb
tbe explosion.    The two men bad not
been on speaking terms for tbroe
months. Prior to tbat tho accuBcd bad
invited witueia to bii hnuse, tolling
bim to bring bli guitar and making
him generally welcome. Then there
bad arisou a coolness for wbicb White
Hold bad never givon any reason.
When asked if be dciired to aik Halo
any i|uoitiona tho prisoner replied
"Not iu this court; iu a higher court
there will bo things to explain, but not
a word in this court."
Gertrude Lauduway, who lived at tiic
accused'■ houie and deicribod benelf aa
big "visitor," denied having over
heard bim mention anything agaiuit
Hale, she was asked to Identify some
stumping powder ind fuse whicii bad
been found in Wbitofield'i houso. She
said bo had told her he bad brought it
home for one of bii noigbbon.
A heated dialogue ensued belween
tho witness ami the prisoner, Wbitoflelil
being annoyed at her not mentioning
tbo namo of tho neighbor, a Ur. Young.
Ho aakad ber why ahe waa "acting in
that way!"
Constables Weir, Summon and Pollock
gave evidence pertaining lo the diacov
cry of the crime, the cbaio and the ar
Sergeant Stewart slated that the
prisoner, when duly warned and charg
cd had admitted placing the powder
beneath tbe aback, but declared tbat
be bad donc.io only with an intent to
After deliberation the mayor and Ur.

Contrary to the usual practice lhe Aisessnienl Notices for

Up to the.present, purchasers have been in lbc habit of
notifying the cily authorities that the property had changed hands
so that notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This form of registration of owner* has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision the
city council is advised by ils solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the recordi of tlie Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.

Uorth Vancouver, B, 0,   ...'... March 88, 1918
The Montreal Witness bai been discussing editorially of late tbe necessity
of a western port for Alberta wheat.
The Witness basse ita observations upon
two grounde, flnt the absolute necessity
of providing some means of relieving
the grain blockade which characterizes
the eastern route to Europe, aud Secondly the necessity of soiiiug the op
portunity which offers of procuring for
B. O. porta a portion of the trallic in
the over growing shipments of flour
from Pacific coast points to tbe Orient.
With reference to tbe former, after
directing attention to tbo fact that tho
grain hlocade eastward promises to
grow rapidly worse unless extraordinary
moasures are taken, tbo Witnesa pro
"Vancouver believes tbat witb a reasonable grain rato for tbo four hundrod
miles that separate hor from Calgary,
she could moro than compcto with 'the
long winter haul of two thousand four
lu.i.sii.,1 miles from Calgary to St.
John, ami bave au advantage over the
long haul more tbau lo balance the
heavier charge for tbe longer wator
route. Of course, Iho Canadian
Pacilic pooh pouhs sucb a suggestion,
as It prefers the long haul. If tbe Ilailway Hommiseion docs not see its way-
clear lo reduce the westward rates on
grain lo somo sort of proportion lo the
eastward rates, some other moans will
have to bo found, and their (the C.P.B.)
jaws pried open from thoir grip upon
Ihe prolils of the grain crop."
Just why the Canadian Pacific Kail
'way should be singled out and held re
sponsible for the fact that Iho grain
growers of tho prairie provinces have
been increasing tbe volume of their
■ rope more rapidly than tbo combined
advancement of ail tbo railway lines in
Ibe country can mauage to handle the
same promptly, may be clear to our con
temporary, but It is somowhat difficult
for tho uninitiated to understand, lu
other respecte however, tbe above para
graph gives an accurato statement of
tbe case from tbe standpoint of tbe
centra located about Burrard Inlel.
With reference to tlio proportions of
thc Oriental trade with Iho Pacific coasl
in lour, aud tho neods of that situation
from a 1'anadiin point of view, lbe
Witness adducos aome striking Metis
ties wbicb am woll worth repealing
Tbo editorial proceeds:
"Independently of the European mar
let Vancouver must some day bo a
great outlet for Ihe Alberta crops.
Ubina's growing rct|Uirenteuts of flour
aro not generally readied. A subscriber draws our attention to tbe fact that
on her last trip out Ibo 'Minnesota'
look (1,01)0 bags of flour from the wtfF
eru Slates to the port of Ilong Kong,
a load tbat sank her so doep in tho wa
ler u lo prevent ber going to her regular anchorage. During the last few
weeks 1,1160,000 bags of flour have gune
lo this single port of China. There is
no reason except the railway rales why
Vancouver, wilh an elevator and a
Hour mill, should nol at least share Ibis
trade. The farmers of much of Aiber
ta may look forward with aome hope
to tbe opening of lbe Grand Trunk Pa
i ifi. to Prince Huperl, and of Ike Can
adian Norlbern lo Vancouver, both ol
wbicb vt being constructed with
"rides Ibal will not necessitate prohibitive lolls. Only such relief as Ibis
seems to offer can avert a cbeck in Ibe
prosperity of farming, such as will be
a disaster to the wbolo rountry. It is
up le Vancouver."
The omission of any mention of North
Vancouver in this very able article of
the Witness, is perhaps accounted for
by lack of accurate knowledge of lo
cal cenditions. Tbore are certain signl
llnnl facte, however, which indicate
conclusively that Nortb Vincouver is
destined to provide the iltea for th<
elevators aad mills, lo which tbe article
refers and in tbat connection Ibere Is
not the slightest hesitation in declaring
upon behalf of the North Shore "Barkis
it wlllln'." The information bu it

of Second Narrows bridge and tbe
Company's connecting Hues, they will

way lines which may desire to participate in transportation operations upon
the North Shore.
When tbeso known facts aro considered—in  ne, lion with the additional
fact that not only duos tbo North Shore
present Iho only romainiiig opportuni-
ties for desirable elevator and mill
sites upon Burrard Inlet, but further
tbat there aro upon this aide of tlio In

therefore, I can ppt 'wist tba truth

Al for myielf, I could'nt carry tba

of hie humor; "the taint will atlck to

"It you don't," I said quietly, "you'll

Then I lost my patience completely.

China and the Celestials
Oontimiad ftem pige three
away it) long sleeves; so tM to » Chinese iiiiml liuroiican clothes, especially
ii woman's evening ilress, aro roost lm-
moful. Among the country people it
v.niilil sometimes he ililliiiill tp distinguish a roau from a woman if it were
not for tho difference in tho hair anil
the feot. Iu llm towns tho better class
Ohinoso lailies ilress very sumptuously,
wilh ilellcitoly colored silk rolius and
wido embroidered silk trousers. Thoir
tiny foot projecting from those do uot
look at all attractive from au European
poiut of view, hut the Ohluese consider
tbem a great beauty, ami profess to ad
mire the ungainly way iu which thuy
hobble along. .The smaller Iho foot ami
I lie mure ungainly tlio hublilo, the mure
attractive is the proud possessor of these
"defects" in the oyos of her husband
and bis friends.
Before tlio Mamliu invasiou iu the
seventeenth contury Chinamen used
tp wear tlieir liair ilono up in u knul
al Ihu hack of Ihuir heads; lull lifter
the conquest llicy were made lo wear
a pigtail and shave the front of their
beads. To make this in ti itt iuu (in reality a mark uf sulijuction lo lbe Man
. I.ii rule) mere palatable, tlieir superstitious natures wore appealed to, and
thoy were made to believe a pigtail was
necessary to enable them to he hauled
up lo Hoaveu. It certainly makos n
very effective means fur capturing uiul
holding bad characters, and one frequently sees three ur four of these gentry lining marched ulung with their
pigtails tied together,
Hu i. .In . Chinese pipit silk into
Iheir pig-tails lo make Ilium luuger, and
Ihu ends of the strings hang down to
about tboir knees,   ll is au insult for
Chinaman tu talk to his superior
with his pig tail wound round his head
ami il is also an insult for In in In tuke
off liis hat when he comes tu visit yon
ur if he moots you in the street. It is
considered guud form to expectorate
freely and noisy when in company,
which is a most disgusting habit. Dili
cials and Chinese uf the leisured classes
allow two or more of tlieir finger nails
lo grow several inches iu length, us un
Indication lhat they do nut have tu
wurk with their bands. I dure say thoy
liud these long nails useful in some
way, hut Ihey must be very iinunveni
■■sit ami liable to catch iu everything
All the men, as well as the women, cur
ry fues whicii they stick in the hack
of Iheir necks or iu their hunts. In ad
diliun to the difference iu the fol,
Chinese women run lie discriminated
from Mauchu women hy tho way Ihey
do their hair. The former huve it done
at tlio hack aud covered wilh a uuin
ber of little ornaments of guid filagree,
lu.ii' and Imitation llowers. The Mauchu
women do theirs round an ornameul
placed acruss Ilie head on tup, which
looks liko a pair of hums; at lirsl sight
y remind one forcibly of the picturoa
of the Duchess in "Alice in Wonder
Tobacco and Feeding
Tobacco smoking is general among
lioth sexes; the pipes aro long ami
straight, with tiny howls which ouly
hold enough for about three pulls al a
lime, so that when a Chinaman smokes
he is continually refilling his pipo. The
light Is obtained frum a rolleil-up spill
of tinder paper whicii slowly smoulders
uutil coaied into a flame by blowing
on it sharply in a peculiar way with a
kind of spitting noise. This has tu be
doue each time Ihe pipo is refilled, su
that they are kepi pretty busy when
Ihey indulge in a smoke.
The Chinese aro great guurmets, uml
love feoding. Katinghouscs abound
everywhere, and invariably du a good
business. Purk is a favorito dish, and
is prepared iu numbers of ways. Ueef
is not eaten, but .the Mahumedans sat
mutton. Bice is, of course, the staple
food, and is eaten at evory meal, eicopl
by i In ' who cannot afford it. Fish,
pork, chicken, vegetables of all kinds,
uiacuruni, bean curd ,aud eggs are euteu
as relishes with the rieo. They liave
numberless saucers, of which one uf the
chief ingredients is said to be black
beetles, and they pickle evory imagin
able thing. Eggs which havo been pre
served underground in a mitturc of
salt, lime and wood asbes for Afty years
or so aro coosidorcd a great delicacy;
they are then of a groeuy black color
aud not at all inviting. Thuy also pro
servo tbem in Uamsbui, a spirit mado
from rice, which should be moro palat
able. Down iu tbe south dogs arc
specially fattened up for eating, but
ihis is not done to any eitent in Vt-
Official Chinese dinner parties arc
very wearisome affairs, thoy continue
for hours, and are one continuous parade of effusive affali\lity and most punc
iiln.ii'sly conventional etitjuctU from
start toijlniih. .They arc usually about
twenty-four courses and your host is
deeply offended if you do.mil <parlake
of tbem all; moreover, be evory now
and then selects wbat ho considers -i
particularly tempting inonol witb bis
chopsticks ind puts it on your plate,
Kadi course is liruuglil round in a bowl
from Which everyone bclpi himself with
his chopsticks, which are rather thinner
and longer thin an ordinary pencil,
made of wood, bone, or ivory, and both
beld by tbe thumb and Angers of tbe
right hand.  Ohopstieki are awkward
to use ul lirsl, but ono *""". gets into
the trick.   The fqod ll picket) np be-
I ween lliu points and transferred tu the
mouth; as tbore ure no knives on the
table, It Is served up ready cut into
smull  pieces siiiluble  for a isn»iitlifiil.
Some of Ibo g^eat delicacies given «i
big dinners would bo considered vprf
weird in  Hugbind, such au soup minle
from sea slugs, or birds' pests ,or pickled seaweed, slewed ducks' tongues,
sharks I Aus, ote. The only liquor drunk
ul those dinners ja bul Hinnshni,
which is served in littlo bowji. Everyone drinks ovoryono olio's heiillh sov
urul times, uud the conversation goner
ally consist uf must flattering apportions of tho capabilities and qualities of the iieii.nu to whom you happen
to lm speaking at tho time, varied by
a corresponding depreciation of yourself and everything connected with you,
ull uf which is very boring.
The Chinese are a very temperate
race. Thuir principal hovcrugu is tea,
which tbey drink at all hours of the
day. It is uut preparud as in Kuglund;
il few leaves of tea ure pluccd in a bowl
and hot water which bus boiled poured
in, ii smaller buwl is then inverted upon
il, uud it is allowed lo stand for a
short time. The best lea bus jasmine
flowers mined wilh it, which gives it a
delightful scented fliivor. Poor people
whu 'inni"! afford leu drink liul water
iustead; Ibey never drink it euld, and
every bouse yuu go to always has a
kuttlo on the boil.
Thero are no fireplaces in dunce
houses. Ciii heating their living rooms
thuy build a broad masonry scat all
along one side of Ihe room, this is hollow underneath, ami connected with a
llm: oulside; there isalsnaduur leading
intu the Interior uf Ihe Kong, us it is
culled, uud here a lire uf wood ur other
iiilliiiiiiuuble niutcriul is kept up; this
makes Iho seat quite nurm ami comfortable, bulb fur sitting ou and sleeping uu at night.
Tho main underlying principle whicii
governs Chinese life is tbe revonmrTc of
children lm their parents. The father
is the head uf lhe family, nnd ull mem
ben of It are expected to conform fa
bit wishes.  Any honor earned by ouo.
of |iis cliil'.lroii is rulloutud back to bimJ
aud if tbey ibould commit any crimu
the disgrico falls equally on bis rtoul-
It a man bu pr son be must adopt
ono. Daughters are looked upon as a
uuisuueo, as thuy are nothing but an
expense until thoy marry, wben tbey
leave tbe family aud join that of their
husbands. Marriages take placi at a
very early age, owing to the necessity
pf raising sons, and ni soon as a bay -
epiucs of a marriageable age stops are
taken to procure a wife for bim. He
has nothing to do with tho choice, there
ure womun who mako a special buijnon
of arranging marriages.     They make s
themselves lli'i|llllilllci! wilh all tbe elder children.round, aud when asked by
thoir parents of lonio boy, ibo selects
some girl she knows whom she thiuks
would suit, goes to tbe girl's pannti
with full infonnation ai tu the name,
iluto and hour of tbo birth of tbe intended bridegroom. Tbli information
thoy lubroit lo a fortune teller who
casts his noriiscopu aud decides If a
marriage with biro would bo favorable
or not. If favorable similar information about tbu girl is given through tho
match-maker to the boy'a parents wbo
submit il tu thoir fortuuo-tollor for ap-.
provai. If all this is rigbl, a day is
fixed and the marriage takes place in
due course.

ypur good countryman seldom ,wj||
quaff a mug of beer without giving a

eiirri'n|iii]].li'iit of the London Evening
Standard, when the strength of the
lind clime floating through the
fliiiirktlii.ru at once startled and liurri
fled me, a toast from which al) csionce

Some good dii lnn4's known in ro'
fined society liuvo a rustic ring, ar
"lli're'n to thee and me and aw on usl
May wo ne'er want nought, none of
Ull Neither thee nor mo, nor anybody
else, uiv on us—naivn nf us." ' A inure
genuine rural tuast contains only llui
words, "Horn, corn, wool and'yam,"
with no rhyming artifice, in uid days
a i'u mu lis' ul farmers' dinners.
"God speed tho plow, and bless t
Corn  mow," goes back  to sixteen
e.Iiiui v Jays, A genuine custom iluuie
from Suffolk runs thus: "Here's a
health lo ahe barley mow. Here's t
health to the man who can holh harrow ami plow ami sow." Such a good
pld toast ougbl uot to be allowed lo
Bul It is with Hie rustic toasts ns
wilb the riislii' folksongs. In a few
years folksongs will be beard no more
except from Hie lips of members of
folksong societies, and somewhere an
old fellow will rise in a couutry inn
to give for lhe lasl time the old toast
humid down lo bim from Iiis fathers
and thereafter rustic toast-giving will
be as extinct as Hie custom of wear
iug Hie smock frock. Folksongs bave
boon rescued and are safe in print, bul
there is nunc lu culled all lbat rustic
wil, ami wisilum which tlie country-
mill's loasl* enshrine.
Looking down the 200 loasls as
printed in Hie bark nuinberi of lbc
Sussex .lourual wc find they contain
much sound rural philosophy ami ox
press in quaint phrases many of the
common hopes uml fears of lhe couu
try people.
To bo "turned out" is a prevailing
fear of tlie country, whether out of
cotloge, ur uf situation, or out of tbe
harborage of Hie iuu. "Hire's lo bim
thai is lurned uut," run. one wish uf
good health accordingly, "ami uoi lo
them lhal lurned him oul. Muy lhe
devil turn him inside out," goes lbc
lhe toast in a fine burst of indignation, which cannot fail lo ovoke lusty
huzzas, "thai turns a fellow servant
To be turned out of jail is anotber
matler, as another loasl nuggols
"Here's to Hie inside of a loaf, llic
oulside of a jail, a pound of beefsteak
and a pot of good ale." Then we have
"Ibe live uuls and lhe une in' 'loasl
If you demand an explanation you
will be told it means "Out of heel, oul
of loc, out of money, oul of clothe*,
oul of credit ahd in debl," a toasl,
Iberefon, lo mliforlune,
itcef and heer fuul n place in scores
uf ruslie loasls. The three Iii aro
sometimes loasled together thus:
"The three Bs. males you know very
well 1 mean bread, beef and beer " Kis
ing lo greater heights lhe countryman
gives the loasl lo lhe nine lis: Baker's
liei bread, butcher's beat heel ami
brewer's best heer." Ihree good things
seldom found in Ihe country in these
ssd times.
Wilh beer and bread a good wife not
unreasonably often is connected
"Good beer a year old; good bread a
day old; or good beef hot or cold and
a good wife wlioll never scold," is a
ucl example. Then we find "Koasl
beef aud strong beer, a pretty lass wilb
a Ihousand a year."
Tho familiar old Ipasl beginning Iho
lino, "Hero's I health lo all those
that we love," is found in several rus
tic versions.
Oue runn "Here's lieallb to ui Iwo
ind Iwo more. If ihey Iwo love lie
Iwo love us two is we two love Ibey
iwo, bore's health lo ill four. But If
they two don't love us I wo is wr Ino
love Ibey two, here's lore to ui two
ami no more."
Again: " 'Ero'a from wc in ourn ter
you in' yourn, mister. A wishes is taw
you and your folk love nr in' our folk
well is we in' our folk love you in'
your folk, for surr there nicer wu folk
since folk were folk is ever loved
(oik 'arf if well as we an' ourn love
you an' yourn, so tbore."
They arc nol ill kindly Ibese ruatir
loasts. Many a maiden nould gladly
honor thia lout lo old bachelors:
"May they live alone on a bed of nrl
ties, >ilt alone on a wooden,stool, oil
alone oo I wooden trencher and br Ibeir
own kitchen maids."   The wisb "May
ou" is worthy qf tho dayi of tbp Magna Chirti.
A sarcistic young man'a twist is to
tbe maid "who takes a kiss and goes
and tells lull' mut her." The ipiesliou
fol|ow»: "flo'st think sho ever ought
to bo kissed b y»ny other!"
Borne of tbo happiest toasts aro in
broadest direct: '"Kro'a good lico|th
to e'o, mum, an' ipay yor alius 'avp
tho strength to puib ulung tbo saipe
as yor doos uow au' let a pattern ' 'nil

'1'flte't giis,si luck to 'im au' may 'c

And, finally, for a truo example of
rustic thankfulness wittily cxprussod:
