CITY TO HAVE
n
J>y a Vote of 13<) Against 26, Citizens Declaro fur Municipal Lighting Scheme,
Tho polling on tlie Electric   Light
UyjLaw on Wednesday was-a   vory
tamo affair.,   Never, at any time during Lhe  whole  dny was there a rush
of voters.    It was expected that after the minors' train got down there
■would  he1 a    crowd    at    the polling
station.   However, expectations were
[not realised, uud when  the poll was
j closed  at 7  o'clock,  only  HjjQ   ta
payers had   registered their votes.
This was certainly a disappointing
poll to be recorded on a question of
such vital importance to tho city.
However, the result was more than
gratifying and exceeded even tho
most sanguine hopes of tho men who
had worked for lights.
Thoro wore not ovor a dozen citizens In tho polling station whon returning officer Stewart broko tho

PLANTING LOBSTERS NEAR NA- 1111.11 OPINION OF NICOLA VA'L
NAIMO  CITY. •       " LEY MINE.
Fisheries Department Planting Sholl
Fish at Dodd's Narrows by
Way of Experiment.
VICTORIA, May 8.—Today a shipment of live lobstors from Sooke
Harbor will be taken to Dodd's Narrows, off Nanaimo, and be planted
between Gabrlola Island and tho
mainland, and the experiment undertaken a month ago by the Dominion fisheries department will bo
continued further north.
The Lobsters form a portion of
tho shipment which was brought cut
from Nova : Scotia by tho department ,a little ovor a month ago.
About 1,800 of the shell fish were
brought by express to this coast and
planted at Sooko harbor In three
large crates. Of thoso nearly a
thousand died. What was tho exact
cause of death was doos not appear
certain, though it was decided that
perhaps it would bo bettor to allow
tho lobsters to go free, and all have
been liberated from tlio crates and
given tho freedom of the ocean.
Eloven years ago a numbor of the
eastern lobstors wero brought to this
coast but after being deposited in
the ocean hero they woro never seen
again. Four years ago another ship
ment was experimented with, being
planted in Nanoose Day, with about
equal results. It is bolioved, howovor, that a success can ho mado of
tho eastern lobster in these waters.
The lobsters going north today are
being carried In a small boat bo
onstruclod that they will bo all
tho time in salt water, which iB allowed frco circulation by means of
holes bored in the bottom of tho
boat. Tho lobsters uro well developed, about five inches in, length,
and should this latest experiment he
successful it will mean tho beginning
of a source of wealth which in future will, it Is claimed, mean much
for this province. The attempt to
transplant the eastern Io>bstcr has
been tried on the Califomian coast,
but with very indifferent success, in
fact it has proved practically a failure and experiments nro now being
made hy the Unltod States government at certain places In tho Sound
though so far results cannot bo ascertained.

As the storm Increased the waves
began to pound the big vessel, driving her steadily hack on the bar. in

First the Oak Island crow tried to

before a man could be brought to
shore the lines were snapped off and
the only link botweon the ship and

The storm continued to grow and
steadily the position of the men on
the wrecked ship became more desperate. The helpless wutchers on

says:
Mrs. Delia Guinness, high priestess
of murder, who, at the back door ol
her form house kept a private grave
yard, from which eleven, bodloa have
been unearthed, is alive. Thin was
established yesterday beyond a reasonable doubt. An ordinary tape
measure proved the agent which may
solve the perplexing mystery of the
long series of startling crimes.
Careful measurements were taken
of tlio headless trunk of the woman
found in the ruins of the burned
homo, it was thought the body of
Mrs. Guinness, this resulted in the
ustoundiug revelation that the dead
woman was not more than half the
size or weight of the siren who ie
supposed to have lured a score of
men to their deaths.
In addition to the convincing testimony of the tape, half a dozen of
the intimate friends of Mrs. Guinness asserted with the posltiveness
of absolute conviction lhat the dead
tody was not that of the body of
the mistress of the castle of death
on the McLung road.
Lapcvt, ind., May 8.—Two rumors
are current, one tbat a man trom
Providence, R.L, was among tbe
dead. Another man living In Ohio
is Bald to. have visited Mrs. Guinness
aud that a fow days later she explained the possession of his horse
and carriage after ho had disappeared by the statoment that she had
tradid with him. At the same time
suspicion has bcon aroused as to the
men, formerly
employed hy Mrs. Guinness. These
have boon given expression by eev-
ornl neighbors, who assert thetr belief that they havo met death at hor
bands. About seven yoars ago, it
is said Olaf Limbo, was in her service, aad upon her looking for another to tako his place, she was ask
ed whoro lie wns, sho replied that
he had gone to Norway to witness
the coronation of the king.

The city has taken ils ffrst really
great and important step on the upward road ol progress. jMter years
of discussion, oi sauoMjlliig latrl-
true and sentimental skiriuishiug,
there is at lust u commou and unanimous doinand for an electric light
ayateiu. in iormer years the qucs-
•tion was always more or less tangled up with, and obscured by, a
cloud of side issues, all of them subsidiary to the main subject, and
uiany of them of minor importance.
On the laat occasion there wa* a bitter and heavy disagreement aa to
whether the motive power should bo
water or •team, and these warring
faction* were again further divided
and split up iv the issue of private
as against municipal ownership.
Thus, while there wus always a majority of tlio ratepayers in favor ol
lights, every by-law wus hopelessly
defeated when it went to the polls.
The circumstances were entirely
different with Ule by-law-wlSch wae
ratiiled on Wednesday. The poll on
that day was merely the culmination ol' a campaign ol propaganda
which began before the municipal
election*. The Issue, except for the
shadow of the sewer question, was
nlways kept admirably clear. The
by-law empowers the council to borrow twenty-five thousand dollars for
the purpose of putting in and operating an electric light plant for the
city. There could be no cross voh
Ing. Either the ratepayer wanted
lights or he did not, and that Is the
way those who recorded their voteB
looked at it.
The poll itself was disappointingly
small. It fell lar short ol half the
electorate. This is not a* It should
be, uid, 11 I* surprising that rate'
payer*, faced with such an importr
ant proposal, liable to adect so vitally their financial Interest, should
dl»pl*y such culpable Indifference,
both aa to their pockets and'as to
their dutie* and responsibilities a*
citizen*. Just as surprning as this
paucity of the Poll was the overwhelming nature of the vote. Practically there was no opposition to
the scheme. Only twenty-six votes
were cast against the by-law, so
that lt may almost be said that the
city had decided by a unanimous
vote for a   lighting system.
.That 1* tho most gratifying feature of the whole business. It is
proof .positive of what has been so
often asserted In this column, that
there has been a great ohange in
public feeling on the (juration. There
waa no getting away from tha fact
that a city without lights wns shut
out from nny possibility of progress.
Now nil tin's Is changed. The prospects for this summer lock better
than ever they have done in tho history of the town. There will be
more work on tho Instollntion nftho
plant, and tho lights themsolves
stand out as tlio first renl step ln
the direction ol progress. Tho town
hns como to Itself nnd to Its own.
Now that the die has heen cast,
thnt the city hns started ouTon Its
upward career, the future of the
town is assured. Faith without
works never had any marketable value. With progress go faith and

'FRISCO WELCOMES SAILOR

SAN FRANCISCO, May 7.- People ol San Francisco and the Pacific coast States today saw andchee
ed wore than 5,000 ol Admiral Evans' sailors a* they marched down
the business streets ot the city over
a line of march that extended for
several miles. The spectacle was
the most notable of It* kind that
ho* ever been seen in San Francisco,
ln addition to the blue Jackets the
marches included detachment* of the
regular army of the Presidio, National Guard, state and city officials and me..,ber* of tbe order* of
Native Son* and Native Daughter*,
and a number of other patriotic and
civic organization*.        '
The Jackie* came ashore early in
tbe forenoon. Prior to the start
of the parade they were assembled
for formation in the street* south of
Market street. The sailor* from
the battleship Connecticut were given the position of honor. Next In
line came the boys from the Vermont, the Missouri, Maine, Alabama
and other of the big ship* of the
battleship fleet. Sixteen naval
bands were among the participants.
Tho military contingent, under the
command of Gen. Funaton, wa*
drawn up ln line along the Battery,
and other streets on the north side
of Market street. Every branch of
the service of the United States
army wa* represented. There were
one company of engineers, fourteen
companies of coast artillery, the entire Eighth Infantry, four troops of
cavalry, three batteries of field artillery, a company of signal corps
men, a corps from the hospital and
the Third artillery corps band. 'These
made a total of more than 2,500
troops In Una.
Notwithstanding It* immense length
and th* great number of organizations taking part the parade waa
started almost exactly on schedule
time, 10 o'clock. All along tbe line
of march the business block*, office
buildings and residences were ablaze
with flags and bunting, gathered tn
festoons or stretched In long folds
from roof to ground, while from
numberless flagpole* and window*
the national color* fluttered in th*
fresh breeze, with here and there the
dark blue of the rear admiral'* flag.
Everywhere the marching marines
and sailors were greeted enthusiastically by the densely packed crowds
of people along the route.
Rear Admiral Evan* wa* ths central figure of ths occasion. Surround
od by the admirals and captain*' of
hi* fleet, th* popular naval commander reviewed tb* pageant from a
raised and beautifully decorated data
In tho grand stand, erected at a
conspicuous down town corner.
Another notabl* figure ln the reviewing! party wa* Secretary of th*
Navy Metcalf. He was attended by
Rear Admiral Glass, retired; Lt. ff.

GRUESOME FIND qtt FARM.
LAFOHTE, Ind., May 7.-T-be grisly . of the private graveyard at the
farm of -Mrs. Bella Guiness a mile
north of Laporte Is still in its early chapters. Todiy the estimates of
the number of persons murdered at
the place through the lure of a matrimonial bureau run all the way
from 12 to 20. The exhumation
yesterday of four dismembered bodies wrapped 'in burlap brings the total of victims known to have been
murdered to nine, Including the bodies supposed to be those of Mrs.
Guiness and her three children, discovered after the flre which burned
the farm house on April 28th, the
total of deaths to be investigated
and accounted for is 18. There was
scant doubt that Sheriff Smutzer
today would discover evidence of
murder ln two more i suspected
graves as unopened. All suspicious
parts of the promises are to be dug
up with special attention to solt
spots beneath rubbish heaps which
so far invariably have been to conceal bodies.
Chicago, May 7.—The following Is
Mrs. Guiness' maternal "ad" with
which victims were lured to death:
"Personal—Comely widow who has
large farm in one of tlie finest districts ln Laporte county, Indiauia,
desires to make tbe acquaintance ol
gentlemen unusually woll provided,
and with view of Joining fortunes.
No replies by letter considered, unless sender is willing to follow answer with personal visit."

waa shed today by K. Helgelin, brother of Andrew Helgelin, 0f Mansfield, S.D., who** dismembered body

Helgelin told tbe coroner 'that not
only had hi* brother been la communication with thc woman, buf also that she had written to him after
Andrew'* disappearance in attempt*
to indue* him to th* city.
'Sell your brother'* stock and
come here, and we will hunt your
brother together," wa* th* laat epistle written in Norwegian, and as
yet only parti"'',, translated. The
lettors Wa Jealously guarded by
Helgelin under order* Irom .Ralph N.
Smith, prosecuting attorney, but enough ha* been revealed to show tbat
ths woman had. attempted to gain
a hold on th* nearest relative of
her latest victim. Bain may interfere with further exhumations today.
Laporte, May 7.-Bessle Conklin, a
young woman residing in Michigan
City, Ind., whoa* former home wa*
ln Laporte, haa been arrested by
Sheriff Schmutzer, and 1* being held
as an important witness. The woman wa* a friend ot Roy Lnmphere,
wbo Is accused of complicity in tbe
murders, but her testimony is considered ol so great importance that
will be locked up until ah* ap-
post* before th* grand Jury next

following: "Ladysmith soccer enthusiasts were talking ol having their

match game ln Ladysmith on
which a wager of 8500 botweon supporters of the teams would hinge,
and intimated to the Calgary men
that if thay were eagor to get that
money they could havo it by playing on tho Island. Tho Calgary
mon replied that the wager would be

DRAWN IN TRACTION ENGINE
BALMORAL, Man., Hay 8,— Harold Heale wae drawn Into a traction
engine with which ho was plowing
yesterday and wa* so torrlbly mangled that be   died almost Instantly
lost the impression should get
abroad that wo got cold foot, or
backed out of our proposition I will
go over tho facts as thoy dovolopod.
First of all, thon, tbo bluff wns
put up by Calgary. Tho members
ol tho tonm got mixod up on tho
Saturday night In Nnnalmo. Of
courso tho games of that dny and
of Saturday came up for discussion,
nnd ono point raised was which
team suffered most from tho hoavy
ground at Recreation Park. Tho Calgary mon wore strong in* tho bolief
that they could go somo on a dry
field and that on a fast ground.
'Ladysmith was not in it. Woll, tho
pitch hero is both dry and fast and
so soon as this was told to tho
Caledonians their menngor offered to
play his team here for 8500.
He had tho money with hiin which
was more than the Ladysinith sports
had. In fact thero was somo of
theirs, or rather somo that had bo-
longed to thom, in tno wad which
was produced by tho Caledonian
manager to nail tho -challenge. For
tho timo being, therefore, tho backers of tho local club had to ' take
back wator. Howovor, thoy told tho
Calgary mon that the monoy would
be there for them, nnd that they
would hoar from Ludysmith.
Thoy were right in this, for tlie
Caledonians would hardly have reach
ed tholr hotel in Vancouver on Monday morning when thoy got a tnlo-
grnm calling thoir bluff. It simply
stated that «.*i00.00 would ho put
up against their tSOO.OO. Thc reply was a long time in coming. In
fact It was protty plain that they
had never anticipated that their
bluff would bo called. After taking
the whole of Monday to consider lt,
they despatched a wire to tho effect
that they would como on tho conditions named, (that is, a sldo hot
of $500.00), and a. threo hundred
guarantee.
Hitherto, there had boen no mention of a guaranteo nt all, On Sunday evening the f 1500.00 looked good
enough to them. So soon, however,
as their bluff is called, thoy begin
to cost round for a certainty; nnd
hit upon tho dovlce of fSOO, win or
lose. The buckors of tho local iluh
did not see this guarat
at all. Thoy were asked to put up
S800, while all the "Callies" Intel to
find was 1200. For a team that
had swept everything beiore it, this
was a mighty poor sporting proposition. They wore asking for odds
not giving them, and that against a
team they had beaten two days before.
Woll, the "Calllos" woro told thoy
couldn't have a guaruntee. They
wore told that thoy could havo the
bet and play for tho gate receipts,
or they could have a $200 guaranteo
and. take thoir chances of placing
tholr bets. But the only condition
on which thoy would come was a
1800 guaranteo. And so they left
for Alberta, with all tho spoils and
honors of tho competition, Possibly
they had had onough of football and
did not care about playing anothor
gamo. Again thoy had got thelion's
share of the purso right through nnd
having takon tho championship muy
have considered themsolves ontitled
to claim a reasonable indemnity win
or lose. But all this does not alter
the fact that it was Calgary, and
not Ladysmith that hacked out of
tho proposition.
It was wrong of tno, so I was told
to suppose that the band which mot
tho' Charmer on its arrival there on
the 18th of April, was thore to receive tho Ladysmith eloven. 1 was
wrong, it appears, because thoro
wero two Nunaimo players on board.
Howovor, I am on safe ground this
timo. Thero woro only tho Lndysmith
boys on tho boat last Friday and
we had. tho Church Lads' Brigade
Band out in our honor. Thoy played us ovor thu gulf and right up
to-tho hotol. Thoy camo back with
tho crowd, too, and tho boys nro
only too sensible of their kindness.
It wns truo sportsmanship.
Curiosity is always a dangerous
quality ospoclally If you lot It bo ob-
sorvod. Some mention was made
Inst wook end of a "Capllnno Canyon," or somo similar name. It
sounded liko a ten-cent blood curd-
lor and thore was qulto n number
wanted to seo it nnd thoy aro still
using embrocation. Tho tall follow,
(not the big follow), the tall follow
know all about it. It was only a
couple of steps from tho train tor-
minus, and it was a lovely spot. So
lt is, and evorybody who visits Vancouver ought to visit It If thoy have
a couple of hours to spare. Tho

only lt lasts longer, and tho bridge-
well, you must Just go and seo It.

more than twico since 1883, nro
Blackburn Rovers-five times, Aston
Villa four, and the Wolves, West
Bromwich, Albion, Sheffield Unltod,
nnd Sheffield Wednesday twico cuch.
From this it will be seen that tho
Wolves have a reputation of being
champion cup fighters, aud this yoar
thoy present tho very remarkable rocord of a team which is half wny
down the Second League, boating a
team which Is second In tho First
League, and beating them by
score which has not been equalled
since Bury boat Derby County by 6
to 0 in 1908,
The victory Is one which discounts
all predictions bused upon League
form, aud goes to show, what every
old footballer knows, that in foot-
ball as in all contests, personality
counts, and thla is a factor which
the "quidnuncs" are apt to leavo
out. Newcastle United ls admittedly the most scientific team in tho
First League, Their passing, placing
and combination Is said to be perfect; theoretically they should have
been able to outmanoeuvre and
trick the Wolves to' their undoing,
yet thoy wcro not ablo to score, and
three goals.were registered against
thom by a team which was scion ti lira 11 their Inferior. The explanation
is thnt grit ls better than science,
and that grit is tho determining factor ln every strenuous contest. The
Wolves nover say die, and aro never
beaten till the whistle blows. They
are desperate players, every nerve
is on the rack, and every muscle is
strained to win. They still retain
the glorious memory of those his
torlc rushes, originated by Jack
Brodle, moro than twonty yoars ago
when he played centre forward and
ho and his fellow forwards getting
the ball would time and again rush
it with the opposing backs and the
goal keeper between the posts,
Tho attack was liko a tornado
which sprang up unexpectedly, It
carried all beforo it, broko up ovory
kind of combination and defence
and rcachod tho goal. In this way
Ilrodlo and his morry mon si atchod
many a match out of tho flro, and
tho history of Association Football
contains no finer records than those
which tell of tho fight to a finish
at Molinoux Grounds, West Bromwich or Aston Lowor Grounds

Villa,
These traditions are prosorvod and
tho "Wolvos;' havo nover ceased to
be celebrated for their "rush." The
particulars of tho final aro not yet
to hand, but tho account of those
mi-flnal, when the Wolves so handsomely defeated Southampton, fully bears out what I am saying. Before the Irresistible onslaught ofthe
Black Country men, the science and
combination of the best team in tho
South waa absolutely ineffective,
I am glad tho Wanderers have
won again, not only because I am
on old Wanderer myself, but because
it Is a local team. With the single
oxceptlon of Hedley the men nip all
from the Black Country. Wolverhampton has been distinguish id from
all other loague teams in that It has
nover made use of imported Scotch
players but has grown Its own.

NANAIMO TEAM HAS THE BEST
FORWARDS.
Crack Caledonia Forward Says Nanaimo Toam has Best Forward
Lino on the Coast.
Billy Stewart, tho crack centre forward of the Calgary soccer toam,
says the Caledonians showed their
best form at Nanaimo un Sunday.
They have been getting belter overy
gamo, but it was not until Sunday
that they got. properly going. Tho
game in that city was the best
exhibition by them yet. Mr. Stewart
is impressed with tha football' on the
coast. He says it ls better than in
Winnipeg. Tho Thlstlo toam has
the finest defence of any team iu
Canada the Calllos have yet mot,
and If tho mainland champions had
a forward division equal to the
backs ho believes that it would bo
Invincible. Is'amiimo has the bost
forwards of any of the coast teams.
according to Mr. Stewart.
The Peoplo's Shiold will not be up
for competition again until lt is
ployed for in Canary noxt yenr.
The Caledonians have won it twico
now, but they have not had the
Shield in their possession even one
year, their previous win having boen
last August. They consider that It
would cheapen the competition to
put It on again at the Calgary fair
this year. Anothor big soccer competition will be hold at tho Dominion exhibition, howovor, If tho Caledonians can so arrange matters.

SENSATIONAL ARREST IN TOUT-
LAND, ORE.
PORTLAND, Ore., May 6.- Edward Hugh Martin, son of a formor
captain, Hugh Martin, of tho Now
York city police department, graduate from West Point, onco lirst llou-
tonnnt In the rogulur army and an
armour plate oxpert at Sandy Hook,
was arrested yestorday on a charge
of murdering Nathan Wolff, a pawn
broker In the city, Friday last,
Martin denies nny knowledge of
the crime. Against his denial is
arrayed a great amount of circumstantial evidence and tho statement
of his wife, who boforo hor marriage
to Martin was Miss Tosslo Griffin, a
hospital nurse of Syracuse, N.Y.,
mode to District Attorney Manning,
says that she fears her husfittnd is
guilty.
LAPOHTE.Ind., May O.-Further
excavuting, which will reveal more •
bodios on tho corpse-strewn farm of
Mrs. Bella Guiness, a mile north ol
hero, is promised for today by A.F.
Smutzer, shoriff of Laports county.
In addition Ray Lamphere, who' is' -
held on a charge of having causod
the deaths of Mrs. Guiness and her
three children who were incarcerated
in a flro which destroyed their residence on April 28, will be subjected
to another examination beforo Justice Smith. It is the hope of Mr.
Smith that Lamphere will shed some
light on the bodios found in the
barnyard of the Guiness home yostorday. One is believed to be that
of Andrew Hclgeleln, of Mansfield,
S.D. Another may be that of Jen-
nio Olson a fostor daughter of Mrs.
Guiness, who disappeared In 1006.
A third ls particularly accounted for
ns that of an unidentified man who
visited the place two or three years
"go. The othor skeletons are said
to he those of children, and are un-.
explained, although Lamphere told
the shoriff last night that a chil
hnd disappeared from the farm som
time ago.
Sheriff Sutzor has advanced the
theory that some of the bodies may
have boon sent hero from Chicago In
an effort to cover crimes ln that
city. Ho has nslod tho Chicago Police to investigate the antecedents cf
tbo Guiness woman, sho having lived in that city prior to hor appearance horo in 1900. But oven If
these mystorles are solved there remains yot the puzzling Incidents «ur
rounding the burning of the houso
in which MrB. Guiness and hor children mot thoir deaths. Two of these
children, Myrtle ngod 11, nnd Lucy,
n-od 7 yenrs wore My Mrs. Guiness'
;>' hi ■ n'n I, The third was Philip
l/ess, :\ ed six years. His lather
s '•Illc-1 by a blow on the head
r years ago. He was said to
havo been si ruck by a falling sausage machine. Serenes died suddenly In Chicago prior to 1900.
That tho flre which caused the
death of these children and their
mother was incendiary Is the firm
'■cllof of the local authorities. Also
thev havo a suspicion that Ray
f.amphbro, driven by Jealousy, was
lho man who started tho fatal blaze.
Except' I.nmphero, Joe Matson,
who wns employed on the farm for
n time, is tho only man who can
throw nny light on the mystery and

CUBE FOB  WHITE  PLAGUE  IS
FOUND.
WASHINGTON, May S.-Naval surgeons and tho medical profession in
general are watching with intense
interest tho development of a method of treatment which holds out
iirpo lor the victims of tho white
plague.
Tho cure was accidentally discovered by Naval Surgeon Bartin Lisle
Wright, whilo administering mercury
for anothor ailment. There are
now thirty-five cases under treatment at the naval hospital at Now
Fort Lyon, Las Animas, Col., and
according to an account of the discovery, extraordinary Improvement
is being shown by all of them.
Tho mercury is administered by hypodermic Injection which is followed
almost immediately by marked improvement in tho patient's condition.
"Of the thirty-iive cases," says'
Ur. Wright, "thirty are showing im-
e^ua ospid poonpoj oirj iCq -juouiOAoad
and temperature, increased appotlto,
distinct advance. There is uo such
thing uow as there was u year or
two ago, of choice apples being packed iu old coil oil bo.\cs or some other oi.uahy undesirable way, Until
Mr. Smith took up this question
such a thing was not uu uncommon
sight in the city.
liotli Mr. Brandith and Air, Smith
are loud ia their praises of tho fruit
that cau be grown in thisdisirlet,
"As goutl as anywhere la Di'iush
Columbia," is tlio way tliey put it.
"i'ou huve a climate, Liie quality,
und can grow the quantity, tliey
say, aud thero is no reason why
iruit growing should not become ouo
of the most Important industries on
the island. The educative measures
adopted Ly tho Fruit Growers' Association and the Dominion and
provincial oillciais are beginning to
have their eileot. There was a time
wiieu it wus nothing unusual' to *sue
a fruit grower with ail quantities
of fruit aud not enough of uny one
variety to make a decent shipment,
'this is boing remedied and and fruit
growers aro paying more attentiou
to the varieties of their fruit and
their commercial value, with pecu-
nary advantage to themselves."
Tho experts say that oa tbo Island
we are somewhat behind the other
fruit-growing! sections of the provinco in the matter of applying scien-
tiilc methods to fruit culture, but
that this will come in good time.
Mr. Smith finished an interesting

The captain of the British steamer
Fitzclaronco, now bound to Bombay,
with coal from Newcastle, is endeavoring through his agents at Tacoma, to recover $500 which ho deposited at Comox owing to leaving
without one of his Chinese* crew,
generally considered to have boon
drowned at tho coaling port. The
Fitzclaronco, Capt. W. il. McLennan,
was coaling for a voyage to Australia with lumber from Tncomn,
when tho 9300 wus deposited. While
conl was boing loaded one of the
Chinese erew disappeared at night.
it. wus thought that a splash hud
been heard in the water ■followed by
a cry for help. However, thero was
nothing to prove that the man had
not deserted, and consequently (he
steamer wns.held  liable.
As the Fltzclnrehce had brought
tho man Into the country und did
not take him out of it, she wus
held liable and tho fine of $500 was
imposed.
Capt. McLennan offered n rownrd
of S50 for dragging for tho body,
and somo time after the steamer
put to sea the body was recovered.
In a letter from Newcastle, N.S.W.,
March 21, Capt. McLennan, refers io
tho matter and asks for u return
of the monoy hc deposited. The crise
has been taHan up by tbo vessel's
agents, J. T, xRteo't *i Co., of Tu-
comij. It hns gone to the government authorities at Ottawa nnd us
soon ns tho caso is fully investigated the. money will likely re returned to tho owners.
If the body had not been found,
thoro would havo been no opportunity to got the money returned as*in
that event the agents of the vessel
could not have proved that the Chinaman  was not  iu the country,

DALLVILLE, Vs., May 8.-As p
result of a bitter family feud wbich'
has caused several previous difficulties of a more or less serious nature in which three men were shot
to death, it is supposed from ambush near Philpott yesterday. The
victims are Jo*. Smith, aged 26;
Chas. Dodson, aged 85; Jas. Holly,
aged 19.
The following were arreeted on the
charge of having committed the murders and released on ball for a summary hearing today: William and
Oro ver Maasey, brothers, and Beres-
ford and Thomas Spencer, brothers.
The feud existing between tbe Shel-
ton and Dodson (agoilies on one side
and the Massoy and Spencer families on the other, was brought to a
focus several days agio when some
unknown parties cut up and destroyed a blockade whisky distillery operated by Samuel Shelton. Shelton
and his friends accused Wm. Mossey
of the deed and started out yesterday with the avowed Intention of
destroying a double distillery alleged to have been operated by
Maesey. Half a dozen men were In
the party and all were heavily armed. It la alleged that the party
arrived at the destination and while
the plantation of Beresford Spencer, the Spencers and Masseys being
warned, concealed themselves behind
a cluster of bushes oh the road and
opened flre with rifles. Over 75
shots were fired in rapid succession,
the three men named above being
killed while their companion* fled,
over twenty bullet* were extracted
from the body of one of the victim*.

GREATEST NAVAL DISPIiAY
EVER SEEN IN THE U. S
SAN FRANCISCO, May 8.- The
greatest naval review ever seen in
American waters took place in San
Francisco Bay, As Secretary of
the Navy Uetcalf steamed down the
long columns of flag-draped fighters,
and was saluted by each vessel in
turn, the sight was one never to be
forgotten by th* thousands of spectators wbo lined the shores and filled Uie countless excursion boats that
dotted the water* of the bay.
As a naval pageant, the review
wa* the moat notable in American
history. There have been several
great naval parades on the Atlantic
coast during tho past two years, but
in no instance was the number of
vessels anywhere near so large a*
was the. case today. Forty-six vessel* of war participated in the demonstration. Of. course the centre
of attraction was the sixteen great
oattleahips ot the Atlantic squadron.
Behind these. wero ranged the armoured cruisers, gunboats and destroyers and fleet auxiliaries. From
the city front there was an excellent
view of the mighty fleet as it lay
ut anchor, stretching in a formidable line from .the foot of East street
to Hunter's point.
Battleships and cruisers, gunboats
and destroyers, all were "dressed"
in the fluttering flags and the brilliant hind- pennants and bits of
bunting which form the international
signal code. During the salutes to
tho secretory of the navy, the white
puffs of powder smoke floated away
like tiny flecks of summer clouds a-
mong the fluttering flag* of the decorated ships, the effect being one of
unexpected 1-eeuty.
Ia the fleet was represented every
type of vessel known to the American navy of the present day. The
stalwart 10,000-tonners of tho Connecticut clnss shared honors with
the tiny destroyers that likewise had
made the 14,000-mile Journey from
Hampton Ronds. Five stages ol
American battleship construction
were represented in the lino, and as
on object lesson in the growth ol
the American navy tbe spectacle
found one of its most striking features. The siuno guns that uttered
a goodbye tributo to President
Roosevelt at Hampton Roads last
December. today, voiced a welcome
to his secretary of the navy.
The great ships tugged at their
anchor chains as the reviewing boat
passed up and down their lines.
Each vessel manned tbe rails as tho
secretary of the navy passed, and
tbe crews stood at attention as the
yacht skirted each line. The vessels of both the Atlantic and Pacific fleets looked almost as spin and
spaa ia their coats of white paint as
though they had but recently left
tbe dry dock. From the shore there
appeared a dazzling background of
warships, whose glisteoing white
side* eparkled In the light rays reflected from the water, and whose
light buff superstructure and stacks
lent a harmonious netting to the
many hued flags floating! from mastheads and peak, from fighting topi
aad flying truck*.
In every part ol the world where
they have been seen American
sels have always attracted attention
because of their graceful lines and
clean-cut appearance. Today assembled Into the greatest fleet that
ever flew the Stars and Stripes, riding nt anchor In one ot the most
beautiful harbors on the American
continent, these ships that constitute the backbone of the American
navy have heen a subject of lively
discussion In naval circle* the world
over, made an Impression that will
live long In the memory of the hundreds of thousands who looked on,
while the secretary of Hie navy, surrounded by a brilliant staff of officers, doffed Ml hat la acknowledgment of each thunderous salute.that
marked ths pros-res* of th* review.
