Mr.  Lockiey nlso brought up    the

TORONTO, Sept. 12.—Tbt reorganization of the provincial police system demands for better enforcement
of the liquor law, and protests
gainst tbe manner in which infractions of tbat law, punishable by imprisonment, are withdrawn or amend
ed, and    representation   condemning

resolutions based at tbo annual moot
ing of tbe temperance nnd moral reform board of the Methodist Church
of Canada, held yesterday. Roportt
of General Secretary Cbown and
Field Secretory Magce are encouraging. They commented strongly how
ever on account of the liquor illegally sold to Indiana, and steps are
to be taken to have this brought to
tho attention of the authorities.
Tt was decided to ask for legislation to prevent race track gambling,

The City League, after banging in

on Sunduy hy a double-header gams.
The Executive Committee met last
evening and selected live tennis, their
object being to keep the elevens as
even in strength us possible in order
to nmke the competition interesting.
How far they have succeeded, time
will show. Jt is to be hoped that
ail the players chosen by the Committee will turn out nud play. Ih.re
is no reason why they should not
join the Club and If tlie League [roes
ns it ought to go und is expected
to go, those who keep out will be
sorry for it.
The following five toums were   selected:
Nationals—Capt. R.  Christian.
tJeavers—Capt. C. Hewlett.
■Canucks—Capt.  Jas.  Adam.

The "-Times" in a number of its
issues lust week gave an amazing demonstration of the kind of political
pabulum which .-'considers suited to
the taste and intelligence of its
readers. The articles in question
perhaps fell bolow even tho very
miry depths along which the Times
habitually conducts its political controversies. All the decenies and amen
ities of public life were fragrantly
violated, and reckless speculation
nnd unjustifiable insinuations usurped the place of sane and legitimate
argument. It was rather a surprise
to those who ever knew tho "Times'
for in the worst of its hysterical va
garies heretofore it had never sunk
to the unsavory vituperation of the
political virago. Certainly it is hard
ly creditable that even tho most
rabid of Liberal grits could assimilate such huge doses of political
Belleagsgate without a quiver or a
qualm. It would surely be a bad dny
for politics and political life in British Columbia if the methods of the
"Times" were copied by other journals. Of course, such a possibility is
hardly conceivable; for not all the
hired men of the press are serving
us the Tame damnee of some cabinet
Minister, and there tire many who
still prefer to play the political1 g-amo
according to the rules, cleanly and
For those of our readers who have
not seen the "Times", and are consequently a littio at sea as to the
direction of our remarks we may
say that a point of business in con
noctloli with the ITuggan land 1is-
pute called Messrs. Shepherd and
Hnwthorntluvaite to Victoria to interview the Premier. Thero was
secrecy about the visit. Tho two
Candidates for the division did not
travel down by airship and creep
into the Premier's office hy different
doors in the dead of night. Mr. .Ha'
thornthwaite has interested himself
in the Hoggan claim, and has acted
as an intermediary between his constituency and Premier McBride. Mr
Shepherd in his professional capacity
had been drawn into the case, and
some point at issue necessitated the
joint presence of theso rival candidates in tho Premier's office. The
small incident tho "Times" has endeavored by every discreditable
means to turn into political capital.
The very simple and natural reason
lor the meeting was altogether too
plain and easy for a journal which
thinks In circles and prefers the
crooked to the straight. In the mooting or tho three gentlemen the
"Times" smelt a conspiracy, and
declared that, n political deal hid
been made. Tt is not certain which
of the candidates is going to withdraw from the contest; but is inclined to believe it is ITawthornth-
■waite. Tt told nil this to its readers
in a specinl article, nnd has frothed
'One thing is 'quite certain. There
a 'deal' on." We wonder by whaii
strange process    of    reasoning    the
Times" arrived at this, certainty.
The certainty of tho "Qpimes" is only
the meanest and most contemptible
kind of suspicion, in nnynother -valk
in life; in any decent kind of society
the voicing uf such a suspicion on
such evidence would be considered as
a piece of egregious bad taste.   The
Times" has not enough of evidence
to justify even a mild suspicion and
yet arrives at a certainty. Could ono.
conceive of u nicer combination uf
moral and logical obliquity? Having
formed its certainty, the "Times'
does not hesitate to supply reason
and motive. Its knowledge was »p
patently not complete on its first
writing, for it has taken up new
ground in every successive articlo.
It commences its deductions from
the charitable premise that Mr,
Hawthornthwaite and Premier de-
Bride are "two of the meanest political charlatans thnt evor combined
their wits." How or why oithor gentlemen should deserve such an appellation tho reader is left to imagine, unless, of course, it has to be
taken as sufficient that tho "Times-1
has stated it.     Then to make    tho
'deal" as natural as possible,   tho
'Times" goes back to the time when
it alleges, Hawthornthwaite was in
the position of dictator to the Mcliride Government. Tt is strange
that if tho Socialist leader endeavors to tako any credit for labor
legislation    during that    period, tho
Times" is ready to provo it vas
Smith. Now it hns the silly effrontery to assert that the dictation on
tho part of the Socialist lender In
the matter of Government business
has not ceased. There is the same
amount of truth in this as in tht1
following asseveration that Socialist
and Conservative candidates have
mado a full canvass of the !tit
uency, or of the assertion that Shop
herd was selected as candidate because ho could be depended upon to
work in conjunction with the Social
ists, 'All this comes perilously nenr
to deliberate lying, and apparent 1:!
constitutes tho whole political stock
in trade of the "Times."
Of course, if Hawthornthwaite
drops out "he will take some kind of
a deal that will redound to his private advantage." This charge of political graft is repeated elsewhere In
other words; although why Premier
McBride should find it necessary to
"do something" for a man "who is
finally convinced of something which
has long been apparent; that he has
no chance whatever against Mr.
Ralph Smith" the "Times" forgets
to explain. Shopherd also is only
running in a forlorn hope, nnd he
is to be compensated by a Government appointment. This is simply
vile ami vicious    insinuation.     The
Times" apparently recognizes only
two classes of politicians. Thero aro
the Liberals (conjure up Smith, Mclnnes and Templeman) who are ill
men of honor and Integrity, spotless and without reproach. All the
othor brands are dirty, dishonest,
notwithstanding thore is nobody cut
of the fight yet, nor will thlere be.,
What we cannot understand is that
tho "Times", after so often declaring' Smith invincible against all
comers and all odds, should give
such an exhibition of blue funk ovor
a bogey of its own creation. If
Hawthornthwaite is such an arrant
grafter as the "Times" alleges, -nd
Shepherd such a shameless office-
seeker, surely the withdrawal of
either one of them is not going to
seriously affect tho chances of the
great and only Ralph. Wo do not
proposo to follow the example of the
the motives so freely given to Mc-
Brido nnd Hawthornthwaite, The
most probable explanation of the
wholo thing seems to be that, driven
to their last ditch, the Liberals of
British Columbia are desperato in
their terror. Such pitiablo exhibitions of kaper and spleen as this,
coming before a contest, always reveal n fighter reckless in his hopelessness. We mny expect several more
spasms of the same kind beforo the
fight Is over.

CHICAGO, Sept. 12.—Open warfare was declared Friday between
the Chicago school officials and the
high school fraternities and societies
on which the board of education has
placed ita ban.
At the Lokevlew high school three
boys were suspended (or refusing to
withdraw from the fraternity to
which they belonged. At each ol
the city high schools the board's ultimatum wns served on the boys and
girls who have not signed the anti-
fraternity pledge. As the pupils entered the close committees they were
handed a card announcing that if
the pledges are not returned Monday with the signatures of both parent and pupil, suspension for one
month will become effective autonuv
slcally in each case. Only withdrawal (rom the secret societies and
special appeal to the board of
education, the pupils were told, will
obtain reinstatement. It seems probable thai several hundred pupils
will be suspended.
Just how (ar the fraternities will
carry their fight will be decided at
a conference today. According to
present plans, arrangements will be
made to. obtain either a court injunction preventing the board from
enforcing Ita rule until a teet case
Is decided, or a writ of mandamaua
restoring those who are suspended.

Homo, Sept. 14.—Tho Correspond-
ica ltoma, a Catholic organ, published tho following communication,
which ovldontly is inspired by tho
jVnlicun concerning thc currying A,

regrcttiiig this omission, wo wish to
point out that wo appreciate tho
liberty and respect which surrounded
the euchnristlc congress under tho
shadow of the British flag. It has
boon said that tho procession could
not bo ullowed as such processions
nro forbidden by a law passod in
tho 10th century. This is not a serious matter, as everybody knows
that such a law became automatically absolute through religious liberty
granted later to British subjects. A

archaeological fa-mo. by exhuming
past prescriptions, wore moroly tho

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12. -
That the boycott of tbe Gorman

about in Japan to further her own
commercial interests is the statement made to the United Press here
today by Ng Poon Chow, editor of
the Chinese Daily, and one of the
most astute students ol Oriental affairs ln this country.
"The notion is a big surprise to
mo," said Mr. Chew, when shown the
cable from Japan. "I am ut a loss
to account for it, bucauso Gcriuiuuy
and my country havo always beon
friendly. Geramny had a Chinese
educational comnussion whoso special duty is to look after Chinese
students that go to Germany, and
to help thom. The Germans get
commercial preferment naturally
from tho Chinese when they return
to their own land.
"I cannot imagine what can bo
browing in ithe Orient with referonco
to this Oermnn situation, unless it
be another of Japan's tricks to got

SEAGIRT, N.J., Sept. 12.— An
attempt to assassinate Gov, Fort, of
New Jersey has been thwarted by
the watchfulness of the post office
employees who discovered in the
mails an infernal machine addressed
to tto governor. The package wae
cleverly contrhed combination of
powder, bullets and matches, which
had been ao arranged that had thu
governor opened it in the ordinary
way there is little doubt he would
have been killed.   .
That the death-dealing package
wae interrui ted before it had reached ita destination waa due to the
vigilance of the postal ofllcials who
have Manned1 the governor's mail
with unusual care since the executive'! recent crusade against violation of the law at Atlantic. The
attitude taken by the governor when
he directed that the excise and oth-
slnrilar law! at the great seaside
resort be strictly enforced; and even
threatened to order out the militia,
if necessary, aroused resentment In
some quarters. To guard the governor ai much as possible from any
annoyance arising from that affair,
unusual watoh was put on his mall.

PARIS, Sept. l-.~With the acquit
tal last night by a jury in the assize court of Louis A. Urogori, who
lired upon Major Dreyfus during the
ceremonies last June, incident to the
plaoing of the body of Emile Zola
in the Pantheon, the Dreyfus affair
which has divided France into two
parties for the lust 12 years, may
be said to have been buried beyond
all possibility of resurrection. The
government, it was evident from the
remark! of tbe advocate general ih
summing up, did not want a severe
sentence which would make a martyr of M. Gregori, but merely a correctional sentence, which would allow the matter to die out. It was
generally anticipated that the court
would condemn Gregori to six
months' Imprisonment, and his complete acquittal partook of the nature of an anti-climax.
Those present in the court rooni
gave vent to thoir feelings according to their political views, and he
court resounded with mingled hoots
and cheers. The president of the
court, however, soon quieted the dis
turbance by ordering the court clear
