Tempting Fate
The timidity or caution of those
who are giving up European trips
this summer on account of recent
maritime mishaps is at least not
shared by one man lately mentioned
in news dispatches. This man, a
stoker, is a survivor of two of the
greatest Atlantic catastrophes of the
last decade, but he has no thought
of giving up the sea on that account.
Do you sit up all night because so
many people have died in their beds?
Well, then, why should he forsake
the cradle of the deep? For him, the
lightning has struck twice in the same
place, and struck hard. He bas
"tempted Fate" by continuing his
trade in the face of what to many
might seem a "warning," but what
to him is only one of ,he experiences
to be expected at some time or other
by those who go down to the sea in
ships. The following comment is
made by the London Daily Mail:
One of the survivors of the Empress of Ireland, who reached Glasgow yesterday,, was also on the Titanic on its first and last voyage. To
have come safely"'through thc two
greatest set tragedies is a strange experience, but this survivor takes it
all with fine fortitude. He is a fireman, and his first business will be to
go to Liverpool and get another job.
We need not suppose that he has any
special passion for the sea, e.r, still
more romantically, that the sea lures
him in spite of himself. Ile gets his
livelihood on ships, and the sea and
past disasters, or future possibilities
of disaster, arc all accidental incidents of the very ordinary business of
earning a livelihood. Of course, your
mathematician, with his doctrine of
probability, will tell yem that the fireman is on the side of mathematics.
But it is not mathematics that carries
hiim through. It is just thc simple
discipline of habit and of duty, the
necessity eif getting through one's
work and the faculty, througii that
work, of taming one's fancy, that
makes life at all practicable. But for
these the world of the quietest city
wouhl be more full of paralyzing
fears than the jungle fullest of wild
A Strange True Story
Nearly every one has read or seen
played the story of "The Count of
Monte Cristo," in which the hero
escapes from his dungeon in the
Chateau d'lf by taking the place of
a dead man. Fantastic and1 melodramatic fiction thought this is, it
is nearly matched by a true story
that is noticed by the Birmingham
(Ala.I Age Herald. In this case the
"hero" sidetracked his captor and
secured another man. quite alive and
originally in possession of most of
his senses, whom he posed as himself. He then, in the role of officer
in charge, delivered the innocent man
to the prison authorities under his
(the rightful prisoner's) name, and
calmly walked off, free and unmolested.    The narrative is presented
from (lhe viewpoint of the victim, a
Scandinavian 'sailor named Albert
Johannsen, and is as follows:
The story starts in a saloon on the
waterfront at Nagasaki, the scene, it
will he remembered, of Madama Butterfly's tribulations. Three strangers
offered to treat Johannsen to drinks.
He accepted. When he regained his
senses he was at sea on board the
American transport ship Sheridan, a
prisoner cn route to the San Quentin
penitentiary. Being unable to speak
English, nobody understood when he
tried to explain, so he was delivered
to the prison authorities as James
Rogers, alias Peter Grimes, tried and
sentenced to serve three years by the
treaty court at Shanghai for forgery.
Johannsen'a cellmate at San Quentin
was a fellow countryman. Through
him he got a hearing and was released.
The real Rogers once served a year
in San Quentin for forgery. He won
thc regard of a San Francisco merchant, who sent him to China as a clerk
on one of the vessels. Rogers was
soon posing as thc merchant's son
and passing bad checks. He was
caught, convicted, and sentenced to
three years at San Quentin. He was
intrusted to an officer of the court,
who was to have taken him tei Nagasaki and turned him over to the
officers of the Sheridan. It is believed that Rogers "ot the officer
drunk at Nagasaki, drugged the unsuspecting Johannsen and personally
turned him over to a petty officer of
the Sheridan late at night, together
with the legal papers whkh he had
stolen  from  the drunken  deputy.
The well-known saying that truth
is stranger than fiction is exemplified nearly every dav in the week
by newsnapcr dispatches from every
part of the world, Maybe that's one
reason why a cleise reader of newspapers is apt to find the average
novel of adventure rather tiresome.
He meets with many more fascinating stories in the news, in which
there is no lack of "human interest."

The Colorado Srtike Nearing an End.
With the signing up of more independent mines throughout the state,
thc striking coal miners are beginning to see the early and successful
culmination of one of the most bitter
struggles in the labor movement.
"The strike was never in better
shape," said John R. Lawson. international board member of the United
Mine Workers. "Operators in every
section of the state, after employing
scab labor since last September, are
beginning to realize fully that they
cannot hope to obtain thc same work
from these d-erclicts as from the experienced coal miners who worked
for them for many years before the
strike. Where tht mines have been
com-pletely shut down thc operators
have been convinced of the greater
efficiency of the union coal miners by
the state mine inspector's report,
which shows that union mines have
produced more than three times as
much coal proportionately as mines
which refused to sign up. The fact
that the smaller mine owners arc
signing up with the union offers a
striking forecasfin my opinion, Heretofore, the large operators have brew
beaten these small owners in every
way possible to keep them from employing union  men.    Thc  signing up
><i these mines now wemld  seem

Two Provinces Prohibit Chinese Employing Girls.
A law prohibiting tin- employment
of white girls by Orientals has been
repeatedly asked- for in all provinces
at the suggestion eef the Trades and
Labor Congress of Canada, it.t as
counsel for the Orientals invariably
argues, in onler tee we.rk a detriment
to the Orientals, but as a measure of
protection   to  the  girls  themselves,
who might be induced to accept such
employment without at all times
understanding the risks they run by
doing so. A significant fact in this
connection is that the legislation was
first proposed and asked for by thc
waitresses' uniem of Vancouver, and
has been reiterated at each successive convention. Manitoba and Saskatchewan arc the only provinces
which have as yet adopted this law.
There appears, however. to be
much the same indifference to its

Shaving  Alfonso.
King Alfonso at nne time was;
fond of taking moteir trips incog. He
motored through a wild region of
Castile and put up with his modest
entourage at a more than modest inn.
"I am sure." be said, "that they won't
know me here." Well, tliey did neit
know him. They treated him like an
ordinary traveller. So much so, in
fact, that when he went to shave the
next morning he found there was no
mirror in his room. So he went down
into the inn yard in his shirt sleeves,
and there a pretty chambermaid
brought him a broken niece of mirror, which he set up beside the well,
and proceeded to lather cheeks and
chin. The girl stood chatting with
him. Finally she said in an odd voice:
"Vou arc not just ait ordinary traveller, are you?" "Why do you ask me
that?" asked the king. "I don't kmow,"
said the maid, "but there's something
about you���perhaps you belong to
the royal court in Madrid?" "Yes. I
do." he answered. "Perhaps you work
for the king himself?' "I do." "And
what do you do for him?" asked the
pretty chambermaid. "Oh. lots of
things." the king replied. "I'm shaving him just now."

"The truth at all  times firmly stands
And  shall   from   age to age endure.
SURELY the- titanic war which today imperils thc
supremacy of liritainiia has eme great lesson to
teach British Columbians���if we are to be a useful
unit of empire we must in times of peace prepare for
Great Britain has prepared for the breaking of the
war cloud by having her fleet manned and ready and
her army in good shape ami her barns filled with
stores and her banks with gold.
British Columbia, as a unit of the Empire, should

Our position at the present moment is peculiar.
True, we have in Vancouver and throughout the
Province many regiments of men who are well armed
and prepared to defend our shores or to take the aggressive under the Union Jack on foreign shores. We
have many pieces of cannon and many arsenals and
drill halls, and we even have one battle cruiser on the
1 !gh seas.
But in thc event of a crisis arising locally���and
thank God such a contingency is very remote���British Columbia would find herself without rations within a fortnight.
Because we fall down on the production of food
Because we do not till our lands.
Because we have not been following in British
Columbia a far-sighted policy of development of our
natural resources.
Today, the Canadian-Australian line of steamers
and the Empress service are tied up by order of the
This means that from New Zealand we can secure
no further supplies of mutton, beef, butter, cheese,
and so forth, for some weeks to come.
From the Orient, of course, we have only been importing eggs.
It is unfortunate that we have allowed British Columbia to become more or less a "Road Mouse of Empire."
To the Crown we cannot at any time lend any
greater service than the intelligent and aggressive
prosecution of the development of our lands and
natural resources. Our Vancouver regiments, ready
and willing to go to the front, are not essentially British Columbia regiments. The men in the ranks and
the officers are, for tlie most part, British-born, and
in sending these men to the flag we are but giving
back to Britain her own.
When this great war is over, we ih British Columbia will work more assiduously to bind the Empire
together by making British Columbia a staunch and
everlasting link. Mot only of our blood will we in
the future contribute to the support of the King, but

years of Conservative rule, according to the figures
issued by Hon. Dr. Roche, 1,489 Japanese were admitted to the Dominion, as compared with only 1,203
in the last three years that the Liberals held power
at Ottawa. In other words, the average number of
Japanese admitted under Borden has been 749 yearly,
as compared with a yearly average of 401 in the three
Liberal years following the completion of the arrangement with Japan.
Under Liberal rule, Hindu immigration was practically stopped. It was stopped as the result of conferences held with the Imperial authorities and the
British authorities in India by Hon. VV. L Mackenzie
King, then Deputy Minister of Labor, who acted as
a commissioner for the Laurier Government in dealing with the matt.r. It was checked so effectively
that in the last three years of Liberal rule���the years
following the conference���only twenty-one Hindus
entered the Dominion. Xor did any serious difficulties arise, such as have recently come in connection with Hindu immigration under Conservative administration of Canadian affairs.
'1 he Liberals greatly reduced Japanese and Chinese
immigration. Tliey practically stopped Hindu immigration and their methods created no situations of
Imperial peril. The Conservatives talked much in
'���'Misition of "Asiatic exclusion." l'ndcr Conservative administration, there is no "Asiatic exclusion."
()n the contrary, there have been large increases in
immigration from Japan and China and tbe Conservative method of dealing with attempted Hindu immigration has created a situation of grave Imperial danger.
Cost of Living, Unemployment and the Tariff
IN ' ipposition, Sir Robert Borden and his associates
professed to be the staunchest foes of Oriental
immigration. They denounced the Liberal Government because even a few Orientals were allowed to
enter Canada. Tliey swept British Columbia on the
cry of "Asiatic exclusion" and by tiie Bid of a forged
telegram pledging exclusion. ()nce tliey gained power,
tnere came a remarkable change in their attitude and
in immigration conditions.
According to official figures given in a booklet
"issued by the direction of the lion. W. J. Roche,
Minister of the Interior," more ....uese entered Canada in the first two years of Borden rule than had
been admitted in the last eleven years of Liberal administration! Between the fiscal year 1900-01 and
the fiscal year 1910-11, both inclusive, 11,314 Chinese
were admitted to the Dominion, or an average of
1,029 per year. In the first two fiscal years of Conservative administration, the number of Chinese admitted to Canada was no less than 13,692, or an
average of 6,848 per year���six times as high an average as in the days of Laurier.
In 1908, an arrangement vvas completed by the
Laurier Cabinet with the Government of Japan for
controlling and curtailing the Japanese emigration to
Canada. The beneficial effects of that arrangement
were at once evident. Tn the first year that it was in
force, Japanese immigration showed a great reduction. It remained in force during the life of the Liberal Ministry and Japanese immigration was kept
at a low figure. It remained in force on the accession of the Borden Cabinet, but it lias not been 'used
with the same good, effect by the Conservative Government as bj Sir Wilfrid Laurier. In the first two

THE June issue of the Labor Gazette brings up
to date the people's argument against the Borden
Government's policy of tariff revision upwards. The
official figures of the Labor Department emphasize
tiie twin evils of increasing cost of living and unemployment, which the Government in its fascil legislation of last session accentuated rather than ameliorated. "Labor conditions generally during May, were
not as favorable as for the same period last year,"
says the Labor Gazpttc.
A few days ago the Department of Immigration
announced in reply to a deputation of some five hundred of Ottawa's unemployed who gathered before the
Government offices seeking aid, that steps would be
taken to deport, if necessary, the thousands of unemployed now seeking public charity in the cities.
In the same issue of the Labor Gazette the statistics
given as to the cost of living in Canada show equally
unsatisfactory conditions. The index number of the
Department, giving thc average wholesale prices on
272 commodities of general use, was 136.2 for the
month of May. In May of last year, it was 135.4.
lhe working man's weekly budget for food last year
averaged $7.34. In 1910, it averaged $6.95. For all
necessary expenses the average weeiuy budget of the
working man last year was $14,024. Jn 1910, it was
In the United States where fiscal revision downwards is now having its logical effect on the cost of
living, the index number of the Labor Department for
May last was 9.1394. In Great Britain for May it was
117.5 as compared with 122.4 in May last year. In
the United States there has been during the year a
reduction of about 5 per cent. In Great Britain there
has been a reduction of nearly 4 per cent.
In Canada alone has there been an increase. And
In Canada alone has there been an increase in the
tariff restrictions favoring monopoly and privilege at
the expense of the masses of consumers and producers.

and others on March 18th, and putting the owners thereof under arrest.
���Major Crozier, a gallant officer of
the Mounted Police, in command of
a few men of that famous force at
Fort Carlton, not many miles away,
was keeping an eye on the situation,
though   very   few   thought   that   the
malcontents under Riel- would actually take up arms. But men who knew
Riel's previous record should have
taken no chances.    Crozier saw  that

of these were killed at Duck Lake.

not kno'v any other such record1 of
unselfish devotion to the cause of the
flag and  country.
Amongsl the volunteers who went
at the firsl call from Prince Albert
was Thomas McKay, a well-known
and influential resilient there, and a
man who, having spent all his life in
the West, knew- lhe natives and their
languages intimately. The McKay
family did distinguished loyalist service in thc rebellion time. James McKay, the present Government representative from Prince Albert and a
fcllow-studeent eef mine at the time,
went out from Winnipeg with the
90th. was at Fish Creek and Battoche
and. em account of his knowledge of
the country and the ways of the frontier, was specially employed by General Middleton as a courier and dispatch carrier. Still another brother.
George, a canon of the Church of
England, was alike chaplain and
scout al lhat time, when his services
in both capacities were highly desirable.
Crozier sent Thomas McKay and
MitcheM. a Duck Lake merchant, to
Batoche tee meet Riel and his council
and persuade them to disband.
But Riel raged like a madman and
cried oul: "McKay, you don't know
what we want. We want bloodll It
is blood we are after���it is a war of
extermination! There are two curses
in this country���the Government and
the Hudson's Bay Company, and we
are going to drive them out! We
want  blood!"
Por a time it looked as if McKay's
life would be taken, but the councillors all knew him, and finally he and
Mitchell were alowcd to go. Next

Ihey   were  as  a  group   wholly  illiterate   and   ignorant   men   in   regard   to
matters e'f government,    'ihe  letter
to Crozier was certainly a cool document for a rebel to propose to send
to a man of Crozier's well-known
courage, even though be had- onl/ a
small force of police and citizens under his command. One can well understand that he would have paid
little attention to it; but it serves to
illustrate what a peculiarly puzzling
untie remarkable character the rebel
chief was. Despite the evidence of
alienists on ooth sides, those who
knew Riel best are still perplexed in
regard  to his mental equilibrium.
Crozier did not know then what a
solemn surrender formula the rebel
chief had expected him to sign, but
he did know that Riel meant business and that he had evidently secured a remarkable degree of control
over his following. The fact that
N'olin, one of a well-known family of
respected type, and Maxine Lepine,
who had been a member of the Lcg-
' islature of Manitoba, could bring
themselves to believe that the Canadian Government (ould be frightened; or bluffed into getting out of
the country, shows how completely
Riel had his followers in the hollow
of his hand.
The day after this extraordinary interview, Crozier, having sent word
to Col. Irvine, his superior officer,
that reinforcements would be required, sent out a few men and teams
to bring in certain stores that were
at Duck Lake belonging to Mitchell.
They were met by some half-breeds
and Indians undier Dumont and

was neai-hy. All altercation arose,
so that only for Thomas McKay, who
had great influence on both sides,
there would have been blood shed
then. The men returned to Fort
Carlton and reported, whereupon
Crozier, again ending word to Col.
Irvine, whom McKay had met near
Prince Albert, decided to take his 100
men and move oul to support the
teams and bring in  lhe stores.
This move on tlu -j.-ert of Crozier
has been discussed from that day to
this and i. �����..', nu ie or less of a riddle. Why did he not wait for junction of forces with Irvine, who was
only a day distant with 100 more
men? Was Crozier anxious to have
the soldierly distinction of nipping
the rebellion in the bud without help?
Did he underestimate the strength
of the enemy and their equipment,
as in later years was the case with
Buller in the Boer War? Or did he
expect that the well-known prestige
of the Mounted Police, 800 of whom
had patrolled half a continent for
years and kept the peace amongst
.(0,000 Indians, would overawe the
rebels? Questions like these have
always been asked, but they
unanswered by mere bum
ity. Can we not say, as But!
in his great biography of Gordon of
Khartoum, that He who is Sovereign
Director of the universe can work
out His will as well by what we call
���the mistakes of men as by the
.strength of archangels? If the battle
of Duck Lake had not been fought
when it was, the country might have
Numbered on in ignorance of the
fact that danger was imminent. If
the seditious work of Riel had gonec
on undisclosed amongst the Indians,
there might have come a general
simultaneous uprising that would
have let loose thousands of savages
on unprotected settlements, ami the
set|iiel would have dwarfed the Simix
massacres  in  the  Western  States.
In short, the battle of Duck Lake
was the ringing of the fire bell which
told thc whole of Canada that the
West was ablaze with rebellion. It
was a big price to pav for our failure
to understand what had been going
on; but if the bell had not rung then,
the fire would have smoldered and
gained a headway which would have
meant years  of bloodshed  to  arrest.
And Duck Lake was on this wise.
Crozier went out with the teams and
100 mounted men, taking also a
seven-poundier gun. A few miles
from Duck Lake the rebel forces
met them under Dumont and Chief
Beardy. There was some parley under a flag of truee carried by the
rebels, but Crozier feared treachery,
aiS the Indians and half-breeds seemed to be gradually surrounding his
men. Then in a scuffle between an
Indian and one of Crozier's men a
rifle was discharged and the firing
became general. Crozier ordered the
men with the seven-pounder te> action, Inn In- was in the line of fire
and thev withheld the shell, though
he reprimanded them afia-w;inls for
saving his life instead of obeying orders. Thc rebels hail the advantage
of the situation, and. wilh a loss of
six killed and a few founded, they
killed nine of tlle Prince Albert volunteers, three policemen and wounded twenty-five more. Crozier saw
that the position was untenable and
ordered his men to retire, which they
did in good ordier, reaching Kiwi
Carlton   late   in   the   afternoon.     An
hour afterwards Irvine arrived at the
fort w ith ICO ,n luntcd '������������ n

fending ami. indeed, ��;i> badly situated, as it was commanded by hills
on twee sides All areeiiud the district
were Indian reserves and Ihe rebels,
flushed with their success at Duck
Lake, might easily get them all on
thc warpath. So Col. Irvine decided
to evacuate tbe fort and go to Prince
Albert, which had a large population,
but was neiw wholly defenceless in
lhe midst eef the disaffected area. He
reached Prince Albert on March 2H
and remained there till the close of
the  rebellion.
For this apparent inaction, the
Mounted Police were criticised by
ignorant armchair fault finders. But
Irvine had to obey orders, and the
orders were based upon a knowledge
of the situation. Had the police been
withdrawn from this locality, the
rebels and their allies might have
swooped down upon the inhabitants
at any moment. Anyone who knows
the character of the Indian, who has
risen up and got a taste of victory,
understands the lengths to which
they might go iu a community largely
composed of women and children.
Fortunately, the conduct of the
Mounted Police all over the field
during that troublesome time, as well
as at all times before and after, has
been of such a uniformly high and
devoted order that they stand out in
the verdict of history as one of the
finest body of men  in  tlle  world.
It is not generally known that
Gabriel Dumont was wounded at the
battle of Duck Lake. This was told
me some time afterwards by Mr.
Roger Gotilct. one of thc Government
Commissioners appointed at the rebellion outbreak to settle thc lantl
claims of thc malcontents. Goulet
was a highly respected and efficient
surveyor in Hudson's Bay Cwnpany
days and knew all the men of that
time intimately. "When Gabriel
came before me," be said, "after the
rebellion to make an affitlavit, he had
to remove his hat. and 1 saw a furrow
had been plowed along the lop of his
hemselves to believe that the
head. He told mc that it had been
done by a bullet at Duck Lake, which
had felled him stunned to the ground.
It was a close call."
Antl Goulct added that hc thought
this bullet had checked Dunioitnt's
aggressiveness somewhat or the rebellion might have been more difficult to suppress. I confess I cannot
see much evidence for that view, but
rather think that the wound made
Dumont a little more determined1.
From one who was wilh him I learned af'terwards that, but for Riel's objection, he wemld have led a midnight
rush on Middleton's camp the night
before the Fish Creek fight. Those
of us who silent manv nights in such
camps that summer know what that
might have meant. A midnight rush
from the plainsmen who knew the
ground and knew how to stampede
the horses anil mules and thus produce "confusion worse confounded,"
might have led almost lo tiie annihilation of the column. And the desire to do it shows Dumont as botfi
a fighter and a strateuiset of no mean
ability. Tbe success at Duck Lake
bad aroused Imth his ardor antl his
spirit  of  revenge.
And in our next article we shall
note the resultant effects of that distressing field.

A Day When the Loser Wins.
Should tlie particular tide of reform that lias welled up in thc little
town of Carmen, Oklahoma, sweep
over the whole country, many arc
the thousands that will have good
cause ie. bless the name of this hitherto unknown hamlet, For this flood
brink's with it a priceless jelsain in
the shape of once-cherished posscss-
i. ns that have been long 1 jved and
li -t. In brief, Carmen has originated
anel nli .rated "Take-It-Back Day"���
one day in the year when each citizen shall make restitution to his
neighbor of whatever he ha- borrowed in the past. Tin- immensity of
this conception stuns the reader.
Imagine what it might mean to have
..in- elay in the year, when without
discourtesy, one might ngb.tiully dc-
uianil that lioeek. thoae umbrellas.

.iii-e- "Take-It-Back Day" had not

as belonging in the same class with
perpetual motion anel the millennium, were long ago charged to pro-
it and loss! The news account nf
this great daj is disappointingly brief,

The dispatches are significantly silent
as tee whether any umbrellas were re-
sinriil to tii eir rightful owrers. Perhaps that would be asking too much
for lhe first ye-ar. or perhaps thr
omission is a skilful allusion by implication ,,r common knowledge ol
human nature to the fact that umbrella; arc appropriated rather than
borrowed. Be that a- it may, however, the fundamental idea of "Take-
It-Back Day" is an excellent eme, and
; Carmen deserves all the celebrity
which it has acquired. There are
limitless possibilities to the scheme,
and in time even those who tell fibs
on their neighbors may be induced
te.   take   ihcm  back.
And upe.n the text of "Take-It-
Back" the Grand Rapids Press reads
an  everyday  sermonette:
It' you have in your possession a
book for which the owner has been
htiniing high and low, lake it back.
If your neighbor's lawn mower reposes in your wood shed, lake it back.
If in ,i moment of forgetfulness you
heatedly told your rival what you
lb.night of him, go te. him and tell
him, man to man, that you did not
mean a word of it. If you owe any
citizen ten dollars, take it back, even
tlneiigli the debt be outlawed. And
last, but not least, if you have been
nourishing a grudge against any man,
."���.man  or  child in  that  community,
| take ihat grudge back and join hands
with lhe other party in a dance over
its  grave.
Mow-  that  for an  idea?     Honestly

to the civic stature? And if here and
there a die-hard were discovered who
cherished  his antagonisms overmuch,
| would  not   partial   success  in  such  a
| programme make any town more livable?

party, when a very enjoyable time
was spent, refreshments being served

Prices of foodstuffs in Canada have
gone up already, antl it is said they
will go still higher. The fact has
been noticed in a public way by the
action of the ratepayers of Burnaby
who have sent to Sir Robert Borden
a copy of a resolution which it
passetl on Tuesday night, protesting
against tbe sudden jump iu prices.
The price of flour and sugar went
to a higher mark yesterday. The
Burnaby resolution  is as follows:
"In view of the present Empire
crisis ami the late stringency through
which Canada has passed, and is
passing, this, the Central Ratepayers'
executive of tiie district of Hurnaby,
B. C learns with alarm, the sudden
jump in prices for the necessaries
of life, such as sugar, flour, etc.,
which must further reduce the sustenance of life to many British Columbia homes, this executive appeals
to the Right Hon. Sir R. L. Borden,
K. Ci and his government to take
such steps as In the wisdom of the
Government may be deemed advisable, lee restrain the greed of such
interests responsible for such like
unwarranted  increases."

Success   of   Annual   Event   on   Oak
Street  Park,  Point  Grey,
The funds tbat arc being received
ami the prizes that arc Being donated
for the intcrniitnicipal sports that are
lo be held on tlle Oak Street Park, at
Eburne, on the afternoon of Saturday, August 15, show in an unmis-
takca-ble manner the interest that is
being taken by the people of the
municipality in this event. Secretary
J<ihn- Mclntyre states that the response received from the residents
of Point Grey has been most satisfactory indeed, and the prizes will
be an attractive lot, which shouhl
arouse the very keenest competition
in the various events.
The municipal sports were organized last year by the Point Grey
Club, but this year they will be of an
intermunicipal character among the
employees of Point Grey, Richmond,
South Vancouver and Burnaby.
The Point Grey men, however,
have done all the collecting for prizes
this year, as well as the major portion
of tlle work in connection with the
sports, and the hope is expressed
that on subsequent occasions the
employees of the other districts will
take more interest in the event, antl
give   assistance   in   this   respect.
It ia intended to hold a dinner at
the Eburne Hotel after the spoils, lo
be followed by a smoking concert, so
as to bring the day's enjoyment lei a
fitting conclusion.

Swedes, Germans, Turks, Montenegrins and Frenchmen.

twenty Italians were actually employed on  the pick antl shovel gang.
Now according to the law of nations, an Italian may be a ratepayer
of South Vanceeiiver and may bc a

Xo sooner had the company agreed
to dispense  with  the  services  of the
sons of Garibaldi, and the conference
of nations adjourned, than trouble
started  again.
Armed with deeds of property in

proving their British citizenship, the
Italians returned to the offices of the
company. They demanded their jobs
