Conservatives Elected to 25 Seats Liberals 21, With Three Deferred -
Elections in the North Which
Will in All Probability Goto-
The Present Government
I he Manitoba Government has
again heen returned by the
p, jple; hut with a much reduced
majority. This however is expected to be increased to awork-
injr efficiency by three by-elections yet to be held in the defer-
ii,1 northern seats, which owe a
considerable debt to the present
administration because of the
energetic work of northern de-
velopment the Roblin govern-
ment has under way. There is
also the inevitable tendency of
di fi rred electorates to side with
the majority even though the
majority is slim. *The result of
thi eletions is undeniably a
severe blow to the expectations
uf the government, Outside the
loss >: a number of what were
coi . li red safe seats, many
other seats were held by only a
small majority Premier Roblin
himself, escaping by but a small
margin as compared with his
majority of over four hundred
al the ast election.
The Liberal sweep in Centre
and South Winnipeg is one of j
ih.' most surprising features of
the campaign, and can only be
attributed to a hostile Orange
and Church sentiment.
In South Winnipeg particularly Mr.McMeans was a fine candi-
date, who sat in the last legis-
ia: ire and earned civic popular-
itj by taking up the cudgels of
the city against the Rees inter-
■ s which sought to jam a bill
crippling the city's power development through the legisla-
ture.
Another surprising f«ature of
an i lection day which has caused much comment is the defeat
of the Hon. Hugh Armstrong,
Provincial Treasurer in his home
constituency of Portage la Prairie by a majority of three, Mr.
Armstrong will no doubt though
ia m.'iiid a recount.
\ there were many small
nm orities there will no doubt.

the committee thosen to interview Mr. Eraser at the time
of visit here with the Attorney
General Mr. Bowser reportrd
that Mr. Eraser felt with them
the need of a good road between South Eort George and
Central and declared that he
would proceed to Victoria to,
apply for a special appropriat-
tion for this purpose, and if the
government could not vote the
necessary money, he would obtain a loan from them and the
city could repay it after they
wore incorporated.
Mr. Eraser advised that a
committee from each of the
Chamber of Commerce and
the Board of Trade get together and send him a list of their
most urgent n icds.
Mr. Kr.isT also promised to
take up the question of r.serving a certa'n amount of land

thut he would personally look
after it should it escape the
Attroney-General.
Tho visit of the Attorney-
General, the Minister o! Lands

has given us a chance to voice
all our needy, and in the near
future we may have many of
them granted. Our member
Mr. Eraser is exerting himself
to a great extent in our behalf
and we should all appreciate
Ws efforts.
New York, July 11.—For the
lirst time since it was discovered that messages could be,traii3
mitted through the ether without the medium of wires a human Voice on board the Tyler,
at sea, was in long communica
tions with the Herald offices,
in Herald Square.
...Kvery word that Br. I). G.
McCaa, nn inventor, of Lancaster, Pa., utter d from the
deck of the Old Dominion line
steamship was h ard plainly in
(he editorial rooms of the Her-
ild and through th' m dium of
the telephone apparatus now in
common use.
A telephone instrument n tho
Herald rooms wns (0 ineete i |by
wire with an instrument in the
Herald radio station at the
Battery. That the instrument
Connected directly with the aerials, or antennae, high above
the station. Those a'rials
the/spoken voice of Dr. McCaa
us it came through the ether
from the Tyler as she steamed
out to sea, and instantly the
voice wae heard' by the person
holding the receiver to his ear
in Herald square. 1
The test proves, aceording to
experts, that wireless commun-
icat'on is upon the thr.shold
of its greatest forward step;
that a per.;on on shore, in h's
home or office may pick up the
same telephone that he has
been using for years to trans
mit land messages und be plac
ed in communication quickly
with any person on board a
steamship at sea.
Furthermore it me; n3 that
every vessel at s a may now be
n communication at nl! times
with other vessels and with the
land by Si simile apparatus
that do is not require a specially dr Led operator, as does th(
wiiel ss tel graph. The mat,t r
of a freight, vessel may stand
on his bridge and speak in an
ordinary voice in'.o h's w'relcss
telephone instrument and be
heard by his agents ashore or
by otht r vessels.
Tests conducted demonstrated that the wireless teloj hone
will more than double' th> c ip-
acity af all wireless 11 gra] h
stations in that the voice is r -
ceived and transmitted with'
out interfering witb the dot
and daslvs of the telegraph system. Soon aft r the Tyler
pass, d quarantine, Mr.McCaa
got into direct telephone communication with the Herald
editorial rooms.
"Hello, Hera'd radio station," came a voic i in th > station at the Battery. This
was answered by wirdess t.l:-
graphy, Then came the voice
again: "This is Dr. Media, on
board the Tyler. Let us tall
io one of th' editors, p'ease.'
A receiving instrument in
the Battery station was connect! d directly with the New-
York Telelpl.one Company's
system ar.d a connection with
the Herald editorial rooms
was obtained.
"Hello, hJ'o, II< raid,"
came the voice as plainly as
though the speaker were only
a few feet away. "Th's is Dr.
McCaa. I am on board tive
Tyler, bound out in the direction of Sundy Hook."
To this tho Herald replied
by wireless telegraphy, the
radio station not be'ng equipped with Dr. Media's wireless
telephone transmitter:
"Compliments, Wo hoar you
perfectly. How is the weather
in the lower Bayi"
Hardly was all of this wireless   telegraphy    messnge   off
when the voice came back,    ae
clear as at first:
"We are having a severe
thunder storm now,, but everything is alright on board the
Tyler. The captain and offices of tho vessel join me in .extending congratulations to the
Herald in the first message of
its kind ever transmitted."
"And the Herald wishes to
congratulate Dr. flcCna. upon
his remarkable success and the
officers of the Tyler for their
co-operation," was the reply of
the Herald by wireless telegraphy.
"I want to thank you for
the interest you have -hown in
my work," came tie cheerlul
voice of Dr. McCaa, "Wo will
try to keep in communication
with your station throughout
the night.     Good luck."
Thus messages went back
and forth most of the night or
at least until press time, and
long after the Tyler had turned the corner of Srndy Hook
and was far on her way to
Norfolk.
Policical Destiny
Of Canada WiU
Never Be Altered
SIR ARTHUR CONAN
DOYLE ON RETURN TO
ENGLAND SAYS CAN
ADA WILL NOT
BE  ANNEXED
LONDON, July 13.-Sir Arthur Conan Doyle has reached
home from his Canadian tour
.Speaking of the Dominon's
political destiny, he said: "Annexation to the United States
is absolutely out of the question in my opinion. There is
not a single instance in history
where two nations standing
apart like well rooted oaks
ever become united.
"Then there is the possibi ity
of Can. becoming independent
1 have tbe strongest view that
this is equally impossible. Can
ada gets 73 per cent, ol her
investments from Great Britain
14 per cent, from the United
States, and 13 per cent, within
her own border. We give her
a free insurance policy in the
navy and the diplomatic service of the Empire is at her dis
posal, she is bound in honor in
near future to make the mother country some returns for
these privileges. But from a
material point of view she cannot break away from us for at
least two or three generations,
and apart from the material
considerations, which I do not
wish to rate highly, lam convinced that there is a very real
widespread eleimnt of Imperial
loyalty in Canada. They retain the tradition of their ancestors of 1782. Perhaps by the
end of the present century,
when Great Britain will find
her daughter bigger than herself, the question of independent existence will come up
in strong form and will haive
to be settled one way or tho
other, but until then at any-
rate, Canada is not likely to
throw off her allegiance.
"The disturbing element in
our relations just now is the
Hindu question. I consider
that the most diffio'i't and, indeed, dangerous one. Tf ever
tho Empire is wrecked it will be
on some such rock as this
Canada has wo choico but to
back up British Columbia in
keeping out the Indians."

Mr.  Ronald 1). Craiwr, ior   7
irs   a    consulting    forestry
[ineer    in British Columbia,
1 an expert on timlx-r, is at
sent engaged upon a   ta.sk,
results of which are of piw-
unt   interest to this prov-
and inde id, to the   v. huh'
lie.ll.
Mr. Cra ie, wbo is working
under the supervision of the
Dominion commission of   con-
-.•rf. ation. is to take an inventory eef the timber resources of
the Dominion of Caaada, com-
mencing with British Columbia
province is estimated
take in the neighborhood
of two yi ar- to thoroughly
cover,
Dr. II. N. Whitford, who is
assisting with the task, is at
pres -nt in tl*? interior collecting data as Do the standing
tirnhy-r, its quality and species,
which information, when received at Mr. Craig's office at
tlie pro-, in dal court house, will
be indexed, and maps prepared
showing its disposition throu-
out the various districts.
Valuable- data is also being
supplied by Mr. G, D. McKay,
of the- provincial forestry department, whose knowlege of
the forest wealth of tehe prov-
ince is of t/reat assistance.
Mr. Craig intends covering
the west coast, and anticipates
that by the fall of the year he
will be in possession of an accumulation of figures which will
keep Lam busy during the wet
season working out totals and
preparing maps.
It is the intention of the com
mission while taking note of
the quanity .and quality of the
timber, also to investigate the
quality of the soil in the different partis of the province
with a view to ascertaining
what class of farming it is adapted to.
This in itself is a thing of inestimable benefit to the province and Dominion at large, as
by this method those areas
which are suitable for agricultural purposes and those which
are not can be indexed for reference, and used for tba purpose for which they are suited.
Thc system used up to the
present in determining the
quantity of standing timber in
t,he province Das be. n that of
taking the estimates of various cruisers and working out
a total on tli_ basis of the
areas covered, which, it is quite
feasible to believe, may be billions and billions of feet short
of the actual figures.
By a thorough and systematic cataloging of th" various
districts of the province and
Dominion, Canada will know-
to a nicety what the wealth of
her timber amounts to.
Further the knowlege gained
and references to be drawn
there from, will, in all probability, give a still greater impetus to the re-afl'orestation
•scheme whieh will eventually l,e
the saving of the forest wealth
of our land.

HERALD  WANT  ADS
BRING GOOD RESULTS
Sir Donald Mann, vice-president of the Canadian Northern
Pacific Railway, is expected to
arrive in Vancouver some time
towards tbj close of the month.
According to a despatch receiv-
;d by the company's local officials from Victoria, Sir Donald
has advised Sir Richard McBride that he will spend a few-
days on the coast about July
20 or 25. Sir Don a/Id is reported
to have stated that he would
bring with him instructions to
start work immediately in Brit
ish Columbia on several C. N.
R. undertakings, including the
False (.'reck terminals, the
Kamloops, Kelowna & Vernon
ine and a further extension of
the Vancouver Island C, N, P.
lines.
Sir William McKenzie is reported to have opened negotiations with English capital for
the sale of the C.N.R. *..<),000,
000 issue and the company is
expecting that a good price
will be quickly obtained for
the bonds so that an immediate start may bt! made on additional C.N.P. work in British
Columbia as well as elsewhere
In Canada. Several large shipments of rails are being received by the company at Kamloops and more are expected
to arrive at Port Mann within
a few week's time.
It is the intention of the
company to get all the steel
down on its main line through
British Columbia before the
snow (lies and having everything ready to complete the
banking or ballasting of the
track early in the spring       of
Paris, July ".—Although th"
Bank of France has not mad"
my official announcement it
was reported on the Bourse to
day that the public had applied for more than forty times
the amount of the issue made
to-day of $161,000,000 of th,'
government 3.J percent loan,
tf this should prove true the
applications have amounted to
more than the entire national
debt of France.
The loan on its admission to
the Bourse to-day immediately
rose from 91, the price of issue
to 91.92.
The general market did not
respond symaptb'tically, as is
usual when gopernment loans
ai* so well received, probably
because capital in Franco is
under the apprehension that
hdavy special taxes afc likely
to be imposed.

The Future
In   looking at this city from
un   outsiders standpoint,    one
cannot     help    being impressed
with the fact that South   Fort
George    pos-esses   the advantages nf a great city.     Lot   us
view the situation from      this
standpoint    and     what do we
find?    The  Grand  Trunk Paci
(ic Railway's    transcontinental
line passes within a half    mile
thus giving us advantages     of
freight    and  passenger service;
with the east and west but the
railroad that will make      this
city second to none in the   Interim- is the Pacific and Great
Eastern.     By using a comparison   we find that   Edmonton
plodded along for many a year
with a trradual increase in hor
population    until the    people
awoke to the possiblities      of
the country lying to the north
and   commenced    its   development—what    happened?.     Edmonton at once awoke, people
came in from all parts, industries started with the knowlege
of the unlimited market to the
north     and Edmonton became
in three years the most important city between Winnipeg and
Vancouver.    Those of us  who
are wise will     read in the his-,
tory of Edmonton the future of
the city of South Fort George,
for    the Pacific Great Eastern
are making this city their main
divisional point, giving us ra'lway communication with Van
couver, whiob with the opening
of the   Panama Canal will ob
tain for us easy excess to all the
great markets of the world for
our manufactured products, our
fanning   products,     and     the
productssof our vast undevelop
<'d mineral resources.
The immense rich and as yet
undeveloped natural resources
of i!m' great Peace River country lying just to the'north of
us are attracting a great number of people and what is more
important a large amount of
capital in order to develop
their resources. Th.'se resources when developed will
»ave to come to South Fort
(ieorge tha main strategical
railway point on the short
'""tt' to the markets of the
world, and thus the natural
gat 'Way of the Peiiece River
Country.
!'('t us not repeat the history
°f Edmonton but rather let us
awake now to the possibilities
of I he north and getting to-
gether use our best endeavours
'<"' the rushing to completion

''■"■i Railway connecting us
With this country. We can undoubtedly by united and concentrated efforts obtain the

'.' special concessions induce
lhl» 1-nrilic & Grefet,East.rn;rail
Wil>' to build n railway bridge
across the Eraser river and thus

this city.
ri'is is the keynote of thc

FORESTS AND NAVIGATION
It has been urged that in the
interests of navigation the Dom
inion Govt, should purchase
such denuded forest land in the
Eastern Provinces as might
be necessary to reforest in order to prevent Hoods and thc filling up of stet-earns with sediment. In this connection the
report on the Trent Watershed
Survey, recently published by
the Commission of Conservation, is of considerable interest
In this region of Ontario, as a
result of fires, 150,000 acres are
practically n desert and tho report urges a policy of forest
conservation under Dominion,
provincial or municiual control
in order to preserve the useful.
ness of the Trent Valley canal,
in which over 810,000,000 are
invested. There are many such
barren areas in the eastern
provinces, which with the
assistance of the Dominion
Government might be made to
produce valuable forest crops.
In Canada disastrous floods
and low water stages have
been largely prevented by tbe
timely action of the Dominion
Government in setting aside as
forest reserves wooded slopes
where tba great rivers of the
Interior of the Dominion have
their origin. On the east slope
of the Rocky Mountains over
20,89(i square miles of non-
agricultural land have been thu3
reserved. , for the double purpose of regulating the run-off
and providing a perpetual supply of timber to meet the ever
increasing needs of the prairie
settlers In the Railway Belt
in British Bolumbia smaller reserves have also been set aside,
chiefly for the purpose of maintaining a steady flow in the
streams on whioh the fruit-grow
ing industry is absolutely dependent.
After a struggle whieh tasted for over ten years tbe .fiends
of conservation in the United
States succeeded in passing the
Weeks Bill on March 1, 1911,
'for the acquisition of lands for
the purpos? of conserving the
navigab'lity   of   navigable riv
ers' by maintaining on these
acquired, watersheds ■ a perpetual growth of forest which
would preserve the regularity |
of the stream-flow, thus aiding1
navigation and water-power development, and would also prevent soil erosion and the resultant filling up of the streams
with sediment.
The Bill was fought bitterly
by interests, who attempted to
prove that forests do not restrain floods or regulate stream
flow, but tb.tir arguments were
totally disaproved in the' House
of Representatives.
lt was then sought to prove
the provision for the purchase
of state or private lands by the
Federal Government to be unconstitutional, but the Committee on the Judiciary, after
thorough consideration, affirmed that 'Congress had the constitutional power to acquire
lands and forest reserves in a
state by purchase, condimnat-
ion or otherwise, as an aid to
navigation, if it be made to
appear to Congress that such
reserves materially or substantially aid navigation.' That
forest reserves had this influence was made to appear'
to Congress, the Weeks Bill was
passed and since then there has
been purchased or approved for
purchase over 65,000 acres of
denuded timberlands in the Ap-e
palachian Mountains, which
will be, when necesssary, artificially reforestSd in order to
bring under control the excessive floods which have caused j
such damage along the Ohio
and other rivers having the!r
source in these mountains.

WILD WOMEN FIGHT IN
COURT LIKE  WILD  CATS
Two militant suffragettes, Geo-
rgiana Lloyd andPhyllis North,
created a scene of violence today when brought up for trial
at the Carnarvon sessions on
charges connected with a
window-smashing campaign on
June 2 at Criccieth, in the constituency of Chancellor of the
Exchequer Lloyd George.
The prisoners fought like
wildcats, and it took five wardens to keep them in the prisoners' enclosure. Each of the
women was sentenced to three
months' imprisonment.
SCENE SHOWS WRECKAGE AFTER ZEPPELIN AIRSHIP EXPLOSION
The above photograph shows scene following the explosion and
destruction of Germany's new navy dirigible. Witnesses of the
tragedy say that at least a dozen of those on the dirigible fell off
before the wreckage reached the earth, their shrieks of pain or
horror being heard above the roar of the motors, which were still
running.
Rescuers hastened to the scene, but the flaming ruins were so,
hot that nobody dared to approach to remove the two or three men
still alive, whose moaning could be heard. These sounds ceased
before the many willing hands of firemen and army pioneers could
reach them.
Only Lieut- Baron Von BIoul, who had gone up as a guest of his
friend, Lieut. Freyex, the commanderof the dirigible, was conscious
when he was extricated. He was in agony from burns on his head
face, legs, and bands, and shrieked repeatedly while being carried
away in an ambulance " For Heaven's sake kill me, kill me.
After suffering terrible agony he passed away in the hospital.

Now that the Panama Canal has been completed, the task of properly fortifying the Canal against
foreign invasion has begun. Several days ago fourteen large motor guns were shipped aboard the
Panama Steamer Christobal. The guns were accompanied by a detachment of artillerymen, and are
only a forerunner of what is to follow.
Along the line of the Canal nature has provided many natural intrenchments ; the Canal being so
very narrow it is possible to so place guns, and owing to the shallowness of the Canal, it is also pos-
to so place mines that it would be absolutely impossible for foreign fighting vessels to enter the
waters of the Canal without certain destruction. The above photograph shows the guns being hoisted on to the deck of the steamer Christobal preparatory to shipment.

of 5 to 1 in one of tb.' Mann cup
series.   The crowd  waa        not

present was sustained until the
whistle blew.   Only a goal sep-
erated the two twelves in   the
last   part   of the final quarter
and  the Vancouver boys tried
hard      to    equalize.   On more

Hounded there was an enthusiastic cheer from the local team's
supporters. Kendall, the player whom Joe Lally refused per
mission to play   in the recent
series between Victoria and

Local Nine Defeat Foley's
London, July 9.—No date
has been fixed for the return
match for the world's lightweight championship between
Freddie Welsh and Willie Ritchie, for which Ritchie, with
fairs:ghted caution, stipulated
in the fight articles. The articles provided that this return
match should occur in the fall.
Unprejudiced experts are
agre;d that Welsh, beyond a
doubt, earntd the decision
which he was awarded by referee Eugene Corie.
"My greatest concern was to
avoid Ritchie's right punch,"
said Welsh. "He has improved greatly in delivering
this blow, and therefore I played safe from start to finish."
Ritchie said : 'Welsh is a
wonderful boxer. His s,.e.d
and cleverness are even greater
than I thought, but I am confident that I can do better. 1
thin'c no one will deny that I
earn d anotb.r chance, for I
was stronger than he at the
end and would have won in a
few more rounds. At no stage
was I in distress from his
blows. However Welsh earned
the decision and I want to con
gratulate him. But I feel certain that I will whip him in'th'
fall."

FIRST   SHIPMENT
Marks New Era in Fruit-
Growing Development
of Fraser     Valley
Hatzic, B. C, July 9.- The
Fraser Valley Fruit Association shipped its first car of
small fruits to the Canadian
Northwest on Saturday. The
association had very little difficulty in securing th. required
amount to fill the car. Besides the 500 crates of raspberries shipped by car the
growers here shipped .50 by
ordinal-)' express on that date.
This makes a total of 950
crates per day. Thus it will
be readily seen that Hatzic can
ship, unassisted a carload of
raspberries every other day,
and make allowance for a
quanity to be shipped through
other sources.
It is predicted that next year
Hatzic will have a third more
raspberries bearing,' and therefore little difficulty will be experienced in shipping by the
car. Of course the car lot
business is only an experiment
this season, and shippers will
anxiously wait the results of
this   year's endeavor.
Three cars of raspberries will
be loaded at this point through
out the week. These wil be
shipped east, and will be handled by the Mutual Brokerage
Company of Calgary. All cars
will h; loaded by Mission and
Hatzic growers exclusively,
each district supplying its'quota
of 500 eases per car.
The first car was loded under
the supervision of the Dom'n-
ion Fruit inspector Clark, and
advices received today by telegraph state that the consignment arrived in excellent condition.

OF GOLDEN SPIKE ON

Two weeks ago two well-
known younj; men of South
Fort George, Hugh Brown
formerly employed by the Eagle
Investment Company and A.
Haight formerly employed in
thc office of his brother I. E.
Haight left here for Peacv
River Crossing in a canoe taking the Summit Lake route.
Having arrived at Summit Lake it seems that tl\oy
were misinformed as to the
nearness of the Parle Pan
Rapids consequently on continuing their journey they were
in the rapids before they dream
ed of their approach, the
canoe ups.'t and both mn were
thrown into tbe river. Ha:ght
being a strong swimmer gained tho shore in safety; but
Brown was drowned. Tbis
adds another death to the already fast growing list of
drowning accidents oocuring in
these fast Uowing rivers, and
inexperienced men should never
al tempt the water route except
accompanied by experieoloed
rivermen, and even with these
men it is not altogether   safe.

Vancouver is to be honoured
with a visit from H.R.H. the
Duke of Connaught, the Dii.
chess of Connaiigl.it and Princess Patricia, always popular
guests. Tlie governor-gen
eral's seereatry, Mr. Arthur F.
Slade, C, M. G., has written
Mayor Baxter to apprise him
of the dais s when his royal
highness   will be in the city.
The vice-regal party will arrive in Vancouver by the'r special train on the C.P.R. early
on the morning of August 17,
and will remain until Thursday
August 20, when they proceed
to Victoria,
While in the city his royal-
highness and the members of
his party will be gues'.s at
the Hotel Vancouver.
The governor-general dur'ng
his visit to the coait will offi-
ate at the inauguration of
the construction of the University of British Columb'a at
Pont Grey and a'si at the
opening of the C; nnaught
block of the Parliament Buildings, of which he la'd the found
ation stone during his previous
visit. His pres na in British
Columbia will concide witb the
driving of the golden spike cn
the Grand Trunk Pacific on
August 15, a c remony at
which he has been invited to
officiate.
The first information which
reached here of the intended
visit of the vice-regal party indicated that only a brief stay
would be made in Victoria,
but apparently the plans have
been changed. The Govocoor
g.nera' will not visit the Yukon
though it is possible that he
may go as far north as Priti'ti
Rupert and make i. trip over
the completed portion of the
Grand Trunk Pacilic. 'ih>
vice-regal party will spend
about   a week at the capital.

Potter delivered a sermon on
the subject, "A New Ten Commandments." He ofiered the
following decalogue, which he
thought well fitted for the present day :
l—Respeet Divinity everywhere.
2—Be clean,, morally, mental
ly and physically.
....— Bow not to money.
4—Remove temptation from
the young.
5-Respect the aged.
fi-Thou shalt not hurry.
7-Thou shalt not worry.
8—Spend wisely.
9-Thou shalt not gossip.
10-Educate the children religiously.
Nelson,    July 8.—In the fiercest    electric storm in the lis- j
tory    of   Naksup, considerable!
damage was done to property,!
Bolts struck several housrs and
the government telephone   l'ne!
and the town system were deranged,    nnd    the switchboard
was burned out.     Wires    were
eut    in places     to small fragments and two buildings   were
ignited.   Jn the bathroom over
the office of the Canadian Dom
inion    Development  Company,
a bolt entered over the 'phone
wire, setting fire to blinds, window sills and a chair and burning a bathrobe to a cinder.
Ati the residence of F. W.
Heathcote, bank manager, a
similiar entry was made, the
lightning bolt setting fire to
clothing in the kitchen, throwing utensils all over the room
and following the brass strips
connecting the linoleum it ran
across, the bathroom and bedroom, making its exit under
the bedroom window,and burst
ing some woodwork, and leaded across a vacant lot twenty-
five ft. away. The family was J
retiring ut the time, and their
escape is a miracle. Dooi\
knobs were severed from their
places at another residence, j

A serious spill on the Newark, N. J. saucer track, where several famous bicycle speed

New York. Luckily none of those^shown in the photograph was seriously injured.
This year every precaution was taken to arrange matters in such fashion that there
could be a " sprinter" and a " grinder" in each combination. This policy has always
tended heretofore to keep the riders hustling all the time, and the adoption of this
policy together with the intention to hang up special prizes in the future, promises to
put the game on a more interesting basis for the riders, which it is thought, will result
in new records.

London, .July 7.—All the provisions for Sir Ernest Shackle-
ton's trip across the south pole
continent are to be packed in
sausage skins. "They are the
most nutritious part of the
composition," says Sir Ernest.
"We tried them in Norway but
did not succeed. We shall no
doubt do better at the south
pole when we are more hungry." -
The menu prepared for     tine
party is not an enticing     one
It      has been decided       upon,

I rations will be 30 ounces a day

: three pounds a clay eaten     by
the   ordinary person.   In     the
latter there is a lot of     wast;
which has be n eliminated from
the rations of the explorers.
There will be daylight during
the wlwle five months the
party is on the march, so the
ordinary clay of 24 hours will
be disregarded, and a new day
of 19 hours established. Supposing the hour for rising on
the first day is 7 o'clock, the

the protein bui'ldsj up muscif;
the nuts are the most nourishing food in the world; and the
oats, mixed with other rations
afford tbj bulk necessary to
keep tlie organs from becoming
atrophied. "You may feel rather sick when you hear of it."
said Sir Ernest, "its rather a
greasy compoubd. Indeed when
we tried it in Norway we
thought it a very unplealsant
sort of ration, but I can assure you that, scientifically
considered, it is tho finest that
has ever been devised. 1 hope
that this time hunger will play
a very small part in our
troubles.
As thie party intends to cut
right accross the continent, a
march of 1,800 miles, they
will have to carry all their
food with them, ancl cannot
like previous explorers, whose
objective was the pole, depend
upon food depots on the re'turn
march. Therefore the greatest
attention is be ng paid to prov
visions. The organization is
perfect so far a.s human ingenuity can advise. They are allowing 15 clays f .od- for blizzards, but they can go on much
shorter rations if necessary,
To carry the food motor sledges
with aerial propellors will be
used for the first time, ancl in
addition there will be one
hundred Canadian dogs, which
can carry a hundred pounds
each.

Graphic, commenting on the
reported intention of President
Huerta to resign, says:
''lluerta's game is up. Prom

VERA CRUZ, -July 13.- To
snve his country from the horrors of civil war and his capital from capture and sack
by a victorious army, General
Huerta intends to resign the
provisional presidency and
leave Mexico. This statement
was made yesterday by Roberto
Esteya Ruiz, Mexican sub-secretary of forign affairs, who
reached Vera Cruz from Mexico
City on his way to Europe.
Huerta, he said, will surrender
the government to Francisco
Carbajal, the new minister of
foreign affairs, who in turn will
step aside when tho time comes
for some other provisional pres
ident, wholly acceptable to the
constitutionalists.
