KILLING  ALL UNM-U-___LED DOGS
NEW YORK, July 30.—Acting under ordors from the Hoard of Health
sixty policemen hnvo beon busy for a
fow days killing dogs found at large
without a muzzle according to a
statoment made to dny by Walter
Belson city Sanitary Inspector. Mr.
Belsel said tho ordors to tho police
to make no exception but they wcro
instructed to take every precaution
to avoid wounding pedestrians by
| stray shots. Tho fact that dog
licenses afford no protection undor
this ordor, results from sevoral
,cases, of rabies in June. At that
timo an ordor was issued to kill all
unmuzzled and unleashed dogs but
its operation was suspended owing
to the protest of Society for tho
Prevention of Cruelty to animals.
A legal opinion sustained the action of the health oillciais, and the
order was put into effect without the
knowledge of tho S.P.C.A, The officers of the society claim tho owners of dogs have a right to redeem.

ATLANTA, July 30.—The flrst an
niversary of the passage of the prohibition law by the Georgia legisla
| ture was celebrated today by the
W. 0. T. tl. and othor temperance
land prohibition organizations in the
I state. The law has been in operation seven months, but publie opinion Is still at variance as to its results on the moral and business in-
terestsof the state.
The prohibition forces declare that
the eflect of the law has been of a
most beneficial character, notwithstanding the fact that it has been
found impossible so far to enforce it
to the letter. The anti-Prohibitionists, on the other hand, assert that
prohibition has seriously injured business interests of the state without
giving any material benefits in return. They declare that the measure has resulted in increased corruption among public official-, anil that
there is as much liquor consumed, in
Georgia now as ever there' was milder the old order of things.
The only point which it seems cannot he disputed successfully is that
the amount of crime, particularly in
the larger cities, has been consider'
ably lessened since the prohibition
[low went Into operation last January. This argument in behalf of
the law is supported by the police
and court records of Atlanta and
other cities.

the throes of an Important Loaguo
competition. The old enthusiasts,
tho men who worked for und supported tho Club last year, who always hoped for the best but woro
by no moans daunted by the worst—
theso men to whom tho fortunes of
tho Club is a paramount consideration, a part of their daily lives, met
together on Woilnosdiiy ovonlng and
began tho work of the coining sen-
son.
Tlio club wns organizotl, olllcers el
ccted nnd a strong and eupablp commltteo elected, Tho meeting exhibi
ted throughout that nlco conibina
tion of enthusiasm 'and determina
tion which nloho inakes success pos
[sible.
Wo uro all aware that thoro are
greater issues at stuko this your, and
that tho boys havo a more strenuous
season to fnco. If we aro to com-
peto on evon terms with tho other
clubs in the Tacific Coast Loaguo,
wo havo no othor option than to
start right - in to strengthen our
team. Vancouver will, without
doubt always command a powerful
eleven, and the champions wlll bo
stronger than ever. The United
team is certainly one to bo reckoned
with. Its bnianco is perfect and
thero is hardly a weak spot in tho
combination-' -The moral of all this
to the ex-champions is plain enough
for everybody to reiid_or himself.
I am not t course; giving anything awny, but the now club man-
ngeuiont ure, ns the French put it,
doing their possible, and there may
bo quite a fow changes In the team
by the time it is necessary for it to
take the field.
Two things occur to mo just hore.
Tho first is thnt Nanaimo will not
part with hor hardlyjwon lnurols
without n (lespernte strugglo. The
second is thnt thc ox-champions will
never rest content with" second place,
and f.hnt therefore n fierce and furious strugglo for supremacy Is bofore us. That is only ns it ought to
be. Competition is tlie salt of sport
and tho keener the rivalry thc more
exciting are the games.
However, there is, or ought to bo,
a limit ovon to competition, nnd the
rivalry should always bo friendly. 1
want to sound a note of warning,
I even ut this early stage of the gamo.
Porsonnlly, I hnvo no patience with
'blind partisanship. It Is merely
stupid and always onds in thc spoiling of sport. I am as much concerned lu tho success of my homo
loam ns nny of its supporters, I nl-
ways wn-jt to see it get n fnlr deal,
Ibut it is always well to try and re-
'mcnibor that there is another tenm
on tho field. Thnt is what your pnr-
tisan can never do. He can only seo
ono color. A foul given for his sldo
Is frantically cheered; n foul against
them Just as frantlcallv hooted, nnd
that whether he hits known tlio cnuso
of either of them.
Wo till roniembor to whnt lengths
this feeling carried tho siipportors of
both towns lust senson. Wo nro liable to havo oven moro excitement
this season, and it is necessary to
Isay right here thut there is no earth
'ly reason for the generation and
nursing of soro feelings. Even whon
ptirtisnnship wns most pronouncod,
nnd feeling ran highest in the two
towns lust season. the players In the
two elevens were on tho vory best ol
torins. There wns no slackening of
their rivnlry because of this. They
pluyed tho most desperate game of
tho season in Vancouver, but left
ithe field ns become good sportsmen
with heightened respect nnd friendlier feeling for each othor.
Tho frionds nnd supporters of
each Club may woll take a lesson
from ull this. Hithorlo It has nl-
wuys boon the easiest thing In tho
world for outsiflo centres to fan tho
hot feeling of rivalry botweon the
two towns into a blaze of contention. Almost nny littio thing sum-
Iced, nnd whilo the two rivals woro
worrying each other to death, tho
outsider calmly and coolly nppropria
ted the prizo. Now os things are
Nanaimo nnd Lndysmith combined
could defy nny combination on tho
Const, nud it is timo they sunk thoir
individual differences so as to givo to
tho Northorn contre its proper importance.
We cannot escape legitimate rivalry, and tho meetings of tho two
clubs ure bound to furnish the great
excitement of tho senson. Ilut we
can stop ourselves from boing carried away liy those feelings to such
a point as to ' work Injury to ourselves, to the town and to tho club
In which wo glory. Lot us yoll for
our own colors, ouch us hurd nnd enthusiastically ns ho likes whilo tho
match is on. When tho gumo is ovor
lot us nrcopt tho result without carping and bickering nnd fighting—with
the best spirit, win or lose.
I hope we shall havo a good season and thut onco more tho colors
TJof our club will flutter proudly from
'the premier place In Island and Pro-.
vinclul football. If we havo to tul—H
a lowor pluco, (which I don't anticipate), thon I would rothor Nannimo took first honors than nny other tonm on the Const. And lot mo
snv thnt'oxcopt ninong, perhaps, the
"Irroconcllablos," I honestly believe
this sentiment to bo reciprocated ln
Nnnnimo.

Westminsters cheering each other as

Shamrocks presided, and in the

"They hnd como east," he said,
"several times with chnllenires and

NEW YORK, July 80.-What pro-
mlaea to ba one of the moat bitterly
contested wlll tights that New York
haa ecen ln many yeara waa begun
today when the wlll ot Benjamin
Bart, the American, who died in
Paris last May, leaving an estate
valued at several millions of dollara
came up tor probate in tho surrogate's court. Before tbe case hi
settled there probably will be ' unfolded a tale of free love and as
alleged "affinity" thut will make exceedingly Interesting reading.
Benjamin Hart amassed a fortune
during the civil war as a clothing
peddlar and increased it greatly by
Judicious Investments In New York
real estate. Thirty yeara ago he
took up hla realdenco in Paris, and
flve years later adopted an Italian
child, Qabrolle Lucchosl, who afterwards came to be known as Isabel
Hart. Later she married a French
diplomut, Jean Gulllomin. Some
years later Hart set up an establishment for a woman named 0-a-
briello Juliette Antoinette de Ble,
who baneuta largely under the presont will.
Hnrt'a friendship for thla woman
offended Mme. Gulllemin, and it was
•aid that ln consequence he disinherited her. The-wlll, however, the
teatator aaya, amply provided for
her at hor marriage. Be left her
jtwo art objects, which bequest he
revoked in a codicil. . So ahe gets
nothing.
To inal a the situation more complex, laat February a Mrs. Wright,
who said ah* lived at 21 Perry St..
thia city, proclaimed that aha waa
th* wife of Hart, whom she said she
married in London twenty-seven
y*ara ago. They lived together for
thn* years I afore separating. From
that time ah* aald Hart gave her a
monthly allowance. She, as woll aa
the adopted . daughter, will contest
th* will. The third contestant is
•kid to be lime, d* Ble.
Tb* beneilciaries named ln the will
all ol them being relatives, are Mary
P. B, Jones, 61 South Orange, N.J,;
a niece; Benjamin Bart, ot San
Francisco, a nephew; Frances Breat-
•d of Chicago, a niece; and Michael
Bart ol New York city.
Donald Harper, a lawyer, Is here
from Paris to look alter the interests of Mm*. Quilloinin, Hart's a-
dopted daughter, in the coming will
contest. It will be claimed that
Hart had alwaya given his adopted
daughter to understand that ahe waa
to Inherit the bulk of hla milliona,
and that thay wsre always on the
moat affectionate terms until the
aged millionaire mat Mil*, da Ble.
One ot th* grounds lor contesting
the wlll will be that Mile, de Ble exercised undue Influence over him.
