of these celebrations. The game Is
dead out of season in July, and on
such a duy as Wednesday was even
a ilve-nside game is out of place. It
would be better to put on purely
[athletic events with obstacle races,
Walking competitions, jumping, and
any event that could be devised to
combine excitement with amusement.
The parade of tho school children
was a marked success and deserves
to become a fixture in the celebration iprogmnuno. The morning is
always given over unreservedly to
them, and here it may be said that
no other events in the whole day's
spoit were watched with greater Interest. Tho little ones are always
out for blood and as> a gonoral rule,
they win on their merits. Little
Maey Gaflbey and Bessie Hannah
will long remember Wednesday. The
[former got a beautiful gold watch,
the latter a lovely gold bracelet, the
prizes being put up by Mr. A. Mc
Murtrie. And aftor the race and
the prizes had Iieon opened out and
revealed in all    their dazzling glory
I to the childish eyes, there wero still
hearty congratulations to the winners Irom their defeated playmates.
If it was nothing else, the celebration was a success with the children.
The pushball waa a huge and
costly lizzie, due entirely to tho fact
that no rules were agreed upon for
out of touch. If, when the ball1 had
creased tho lino, tbe players had li(een
stopped, the bnll brought back" well
into the field, and' the contestants
lined up at equal distances from tho
| sphere, the game would havt provided heaps of sport nnd,-inusement.
As lt was the commltteo got about
live dollars worth of amusement at
an outlay of over $50, whloh is poor
What's the matter with the local
five-aside team. Wednesday was disastrous   truly and the collapse    of
'Wynn's five put a fitting climax to
It. Cosier hns never figured in such
a debacle bofore, and report has lt
that Bob has never been able to
smile since.     When the boys do get
I into winning mood again there will
be no holding them. Meantime
friend Jim is calling "Time!"
One highly satisfactory thing n-
bout the day's proceedings was that
thert was never a protest in any
of the events. One of the ennoes in
tho Indian raco was driven on to tho
turning buoy, and split, and the
crow wero out of the raco. For a
minute or two. indeed, they were out
jof the canoe on the buoy, but decided thoy could make tho camp, and
paddled off.
This was the only thing approaching an accident except when Jimmy
fell underneath tho pushball, so that
evarybody concerned with the sports
la to be congratulated.

whloh presented the argument    that

the charges. Nor Is it surprising
that ho Bhould Book a fairer tribunal, when the majority of the committee before the inquiry began pro-
nouncod his clinrges slanders, and
declured that the government would
l« vindicated.
Tbt Charges Remain.
Tne Liberal majority of the cominittee haa now ruled that it will
hear no more evidence. The two
Conservative members Uo not agree
with that. They suy that the withdrawal of Major Hodgins from the
Inquiry does not close tht question.
Abundant proof of over-cloaslllcation
has beta furnished. It did not come
Irom Vajor Hodgins alone, but irom
engineers in a still higher position;.
Ur. Woods, the engineer of the G.T.
P. Company, has mode stronger
charges thun the accuser. He says
that specifications have been ignored, and excessive allowances mode,
not through mistake of local engines-*, but from arbitrary orders of
their superiors. As his company is
expected to repay to the government
the cost of the road, he haa made
strong protest against a classification "Increasing the cost to auch an
alarming extent."
What About the Taxpayer?
The contract with the G.T.P, provides for arbitration between
company and the government
these ditputed accounts. If thero
are, ovtr-jiayments the company will
not bt chargeable. The taxpayers
of the country will bear the loss. So
it la not merely a question between
Major Hodgins nnd the Commission.
Therefore, Mr. Barker and Mr. Lennox, the Conservative minority in
the committee, desired to go on
with ths enquiry, and ascertain whether there wus overpayment, and if
so to have it stopped. If Major
Hodgins has lieen wronged he may
get his vindication from a Board of
-Engineers. But if tht country has
beon wronged, tho Board of Engineers ennnot get the money back.

majority refuses to go on and finish
its ohvioua duly to the people    of
from politic, of the whole civil service, outside and inside, in the department* at Ottawa, tht po.tofllce
and customs service, an the Inter
colonial and elsewhere. This wa. to
apply both to promotions and appointments. Whan parliament met,
Mr. Foster placed on tbt order paper a resolution aupporting thla
programme. This was rejected by
a straight government majority-
After notice of the resolution was
given, but beforo the vote was tak-
tbe government's civil service
commission had exposed some of the
Iniquities of the present system. So
the government waa absolutely forced to do something.
Scope ol the Measure.
The measure now proposed does nolj
affect the vast majority of civil servants throughout the country though)
the government takes the power to
extend its operations. It adapts a
part of tht Conservative platform by
establishing a permanent civil ser-
vice commission, but doet not make
that commission so independent
that platform demands. This committee is to hold competitive examinations and make original appointments to the inside service at Ottawa by merit alone. Subsequent promotions are still left with the government, .though the Conservatlvt
platform and tho royal commission
report ivns against patronage in promotions as well as appointments.
The hill proposes a general Increase
of salary to Ottawa officials.

yesterday decided that the best way
out of tht difficulty was to commit
suicide in such a way that each wo-
would know that he had killed
himself for her.
For Mist Carrie Nelson, aged 18,
he swallowed 00 grains of morphine;
for Ulss Eva Spellman, aged 25, he
drank four ounces of laudenaum; for

laudenaum bottle stood on a slip of
paper on which wa. written, "For
Eva." An empty envelope, on
which a picture of a shotgun had
been drawn waa Inscribed "Henriet

From other parts of the country also has come information that my

"On that    proposition," said    be,
you can emphatically state that

VICTORIA, July 2.-News of
boat disaster involving tho loss of
severul hundred lives on the coast of
ilutuviu wus brought by tho U.M.b,
Empress of China, which reached
port yesterday.
During the paddy cuttiug season,
whole families uf natives are in the
liai.it of leaving their squalid quarters in tho city io aee- employment
in tbe o'.en fields. Tho rice is now
being hoi-vested in the country a-
I'ouud Butavia, and a large batch oi
men, women and* children, in order
to escape tho heat ot travelling by
day, and with tho view of reaching
their destination by a quicker and
less circuitous route, decided to
cross the harbor liy moonlight. So
many people were making this annual excursion that the largo pru-
hus, or native bouts, moored in the
harbor, were insullicient to accommodate the passengers, mostly Javanese, with any degree of comfort,
much less safety. It was noticed
that clouds had been gathering during the evening, and that heavy rain
threatened. But no heed was paid
to this common experience at this
time of tht year, and the boats began to creep out Into the darkness
of the night—a darkness more Intense on account of the moon being
o: scored. ,
Shortly after leaving, rnin commenced to fall heavily, tho wind
howled in tho rigging, and the passengers, becoming panic stricken, aoon
had several of tho larger boats beyond control cf the native crows.
First ono prnhu rocked violently
from sldo to sldo and thon hcclcil

and yet anothor. Shrloking passengers struggled nnd fought in tho

of rescuo, not alono on account of
the blackness of tho night, so' much

tho neighborhood woro already too
crowdod to permit of any othor passengers being taken aboard.
A fow fishing boats rowed out to
the sceno, anil succeeded in effecting
the rescue of 27 persons Iound clinging to the, flouting wreckage. To add
to the terror of tho tragedy tho waters of Bntavin hnrbor nro' infested
with sharks, which pulled many n
struggling mortal bononth tho waves.
Tho morning following, corpses drifted to tho shore, bearing indication
of having bcon mutilated, or partly
devoured by sharks. ' .
A week from the night of. tho disaster, tho authorities hnd accounted
for 8-19 bodies, picked up on tho
beach nnd on neighboring islands,

New York, July 3.—It haa long
been a practise among a certain
class of New Yorkers, who desire to
put on a bigger front than their
thinly padded salary envelopes will
permit, to purchase certain gifts at
a store where moderate prices prevail and enclose them in boxes stamped with the name of some fashionable and high priced dealer on Fifth
avenue. This little innocent deceit
lias been practised largely in the
matter of wedding gifts which they
would like to purchase, if their salaries permittod, at Tiffany's. Consequently boxes bearing that firm's
name oro sought more than any other. Their plan of securing a box,
although roundabout, is comparatively simple. They purchase a gilt
at Tiffany's, for example, which is
properly packed in a box bearing
the firm's name, but instead of keen*
ing the purchase they return the following day and ask to have their
money refunded. They do, however,
keep the box. They then purchase
a similar article at a less fashionable and expensive store, put it in
the Tiffany box, and send it off with
n snug satisfaction that no one will
ever know the difference. The custom has been s0 much abused of late
that some of the fashionable shops
no longer print their name on the
