Tho rabbit and Its pursuer came
diagonally across the Held towards

was speeding, hot they were running
at a speed that was far in excess of

Tho rabbit, after a frightened
glance, seemed to como to tho conclusion that the automobile was a
safe refuge nnd mado no ellort to escape whon Mr. Crampsey put a protecting arm around lt. And now

The dog, not be baulked by the
rabbit, gave chase to the automobile
which was carrying away his prey.
With loud yelps he chased after the

Mr. Crampsey hail put on full

THE NANAIMO VACANCY.
Tile Victoria' Times has aguin tuk-
fen the Nunuimo constituency   under
Jits wing.        As an interlude to its
(daily dirge on the defeat of Toinple,-
niaii we were told all about the va-
here.      It seems (and this is meant
to further elucidate the problem    o'
the foregoing sentence) that the "alliance   is working together for    its
own special benefit," but we cannot
say     wo are   very much enlightened
oven yot.     We rather imagine, howover, that the editor was feeling himself cribbed, cabined, and confined as
the result of    his daily fulminations
ugainst the methods of the Colonist.
There is not    a   known or an     unknown political crime which .the Colonist hus hot beon guilty of. and not
tlie least of theso has been its gross
indulgence     in    personalities.     The
Times, of course, wns blinded by the
beam in its own eye, but,   us tbe result of Its bitter reproaches and furious    condemnation of the Colonist,

THE P.  C. LEAGUE
What Nunaimo and Ladysmith fail
ed to do, Vancouvor accomplished on
Sunday. The boys front the Terminal City defeated tho Americans
by a scoro of five goals to three.
As on Saturday Vancouver, defeated
Victoria by two ,goi,' to ono, the
Mainland combination now holds tho
best position lhe Tnnmio. Here Is
the ttfito:
<i
fair to say anything] but thero
I every reason to believe tl „i th.
«•* will bo sustained
the Times    may bo
typical example of the Times' method of dealing   with political opponents.     For six weeks this great Liberal organ has beon  bewailing     its
proprietor's defeat, knocking the city
wbich    supports it and the citizens
who pay to peruse it,   and   whining
and reviling    at nil who were so te-
lnerariois as to disregard its admonitions.     In its tirades since the fjv-
ent it hus sounded every depth     of
meanness    and    absurdity, nnd still
apparently hns no consciousness     of
its own ridiculous incousistency. Tho
methods it employed to defeat    Mr
Shepherd in tho local light were such
us no honorable nor reputable Journal would    have stooped to.        Its
statements, on more than one occu-
sionsion,  had to 1» stigmatised   by
tho Conservative candidate, as     de-
literate lies.     Its last incursion into    the local,   field, wag on the very
eve of the election, and on that oc
casion it exceeded all its previous efforts in the dubious art and creation
of   political    "canards."    Tho deus
ex lraicbinn of tho plot was nn anonymous    correspondent, the manufacture of which is very clearly a strong
suit with tho Times writers.      The
editor must    have felt very satisfied
with tho work of his  brain (and he
had reason   to be) for the same character has now been resurrected.
Ue is not   quite the some in    appearance, in name, or in style   this
time,     however.     Still he is  fairly
recognizable, and few indeed will fail
.to perceive his identity.     Last time
he was a disgruntled Tory, and    a
very artful   tale, considering   whero
it was made, he unfolded.    He    is
■till disgruntled, but whether ho  Ib
Tory or Liberal, his creator fails to
tell us.   Ho is merely an unreasonably inquisitive person who apparently hu* more time to spare than anything else.    He wants tho editor of
the limes to tell him  if the Nanaimo vacancy has    been filled (a piece
of overdone and very feeble sarcasmi)
and if not, when tho election is likely to be.   Of course the Times editor
is simply bursting with information,
and he proceeds   to cut it oil    and
hand   it   out In such chunks a* may
easily    choke oven  an unreasonably
inquisitive   person.     We have    first
of all the   old story of the McBride
and  Uie    Hawthornthwaite alliance.

Dec 4.—Perhaps the
by this
year's football contests was that the
so-called minor colleges are no longer to be despised. Ilerotaforo, tho
big teams, such us Yalo, Harvard
and Pennsylvania, havo usunlly toyed with their smaller opponents, running up points almost at will, Now
all tills Is changed. The Navy tlod
Harvard, and Drown hold tho Crimson to a ti to 2 scoro this fall:
Dartmouth defeated PVjncoton, whilo
Syracuse and, Wost Point hold tho
raon from Now Jorsoy to nothing to
nothing tie*, and Yale wo* able to
scoro only ono touchdown ugainst
both Syrncuso and tho Army. Thoso
are a fow Instances of tho strength
of tho lessor elevens.
Another fact brought out Is that
tho "new" football hns como to
stay. As now played lho game Is
far more open and hence more Interesting to the spectator and less dangerous to the player, Punting, fleld
goal kicking and trick plays have
reached a greater development than
ever betore, while tho forward pass,
on innovation, is generally admitted
to be one of the prettiest plays In
football. Many of the most bitter

of this city    who have been notified

treasures,    variously valued at 150,-
0O0 to S75.000 in value, which disappeared from the home of the  late
Mrs. Geo. Wood since hor doath   on
Oct, 13, claimed today that if    the
many articles alleged to be missing,
were taken    from the house,     they I
were not carried off by persons who
make stealing a  business.   The    alleged disappearance of tbo valuable*
has created     a  small sensation    a-
mong Mrs, Wood's friends. The dead
woman     was sixty years old,     and
was the    widow    of George Woods,
formerly American manager of a foreign insurance company.    Her handsome home was well furnished    on-
contained treasures gathered here audi
abroad.      Mrs.    Woods was    found
dead in a  chair at hcr home    and
the   coroner's    physician    assigned
heart disease    as the cause.     There
wes no one in the house when    she
died.       A will left by hor appointed
the Girard Trust Company and two
women friend, a. executors of    the
estate, and when it came to distribution of beneficiaries, many articles
mentioned In the will were found to
be mining.     It i. not alleged that
the articles were stolen a* there  Is
no positive evidence that these articles had not been disposed of    during the life time of the woman.    It
was   a  peculiarity    of MM. Woods
that her things were kept in   great
confusion.     Since hor death valuable
ornaments    have been found hidden
away ln trunks, tucked behind   furniture and poked ln out of the way

U.   S. CRUISER SUNK IN GALE.

The Yankee wa* proceeding undor

It was intended, os soon as soon al
tho cruller had been freed fromthe
roof to tow her to New York, but a
nasty southeast gale made such
plan impracticable and the cruiser
and her convoys started for thl.
port, When darkness set in, the officer in charge ot the cruiser deemed
it imprudent to proceed further, inasmuch ae the Lebanon drawn more
than twenty feet of water and lt
wae thought that it would be hazardous to bring a vessel of such
draught Into New Bedford after dark,
The Yankee was then towed to an
anchorage on tho lee of Penlkez. ...
It was about 7 a.m. when the
Yankee went down. Although no de
tails were available at 8.80 a.m. lt

PUNISHMENT OF CRIME IN EGG-
LAND.
London's undetected murders formed the subject of a question in parliament recently. The home secretary, Herbert Gladstone, stated that
there bad been ninety-two murders
in the metropolitan police district
since Jan. 1, 1904, and in ten cases
tho perpetraior had not been brought
to justice. Four out of the ten undiscovered cases were those in which
women had died as the result of illegal operations. As they hardly belong to the category of murders, as
popularly understood, Gladstone's
figures are taken to reflect high credit on tho London police by comparison with other capitals.
Among the undiscovered cases are
somo iu which tho polico aro convinced that they know the murder-
but are unable to flnd legal
evidence enough to justify arrest, or
to secure the conviction ot the suspected person. This fact is understood to apply particularly to two
oases, where women havo been murdered in circumstances whloh created considerable sensation. The police theory ie that one man is responsible for both crimes, and that
thoir inability to convict in the flrst I
instance, when he was put on trial i
and acquitted, and their absolute,
failure to obtain evidence of his conn
mission ot tho second, show him to
be one of the most remarkable crhu-_
innls In the world. j
A constant watch is kept upon;
him, and it is hoped that If hls ho- •

murder again he will be detected be-1

TRICKS  OF  SILK G MOWERS.     )
Silk science is changing. If the
silk dresses of fifty yoars ago oro
compared with ninny of the silk ar-l
tides manufactured at tho present I
day it requires no elaborate tests to
show the superiority in strength of
the older materials.
This usually is due to tho fact',
that silk yarns now aro frequently
treated with metallic Bolts, such as
tin chloride, which aro readily absorbed, fornuing insoluablo compounds, and thus increasing the
weight of the fiber. So prevalent
did this practice become some yoars
ago that even the manufacturers recognized tbo necessity of putting
some limit to it.
Apart from the fact that one ls
buying a compound of silk with a
metal instead of pure silk, this treatment frequently causes tho fibres to

readily by tho fact that salt Is a

Special precautions   aro now taken

The Vanoouvor World, commenting
on the Vancouver-Seattle gome says:
'/This victory puts Vancouver well

that Vancouvor wns badly doto-tnl

Ia the afternoon ln ell the schools
a part of the time was devoted to
the study of the life and deeds of
Columbus.
An amusing reply was given by
one ot the pupils. A teacher had
told the class of the wonderful voyage of Columbus and how he insisted on continuing his voyage after
the other men were clamoring to return. Then she asked, "Who was
Columbus?" with a view of hearing
how well they had followed her talk.
One little hand went up.
"Well, Johnny, who was ho?" asked the teacher.
