TYEE FOR
HOWAY MEDALS
The Tyee Gun Club had a big
day's shooting) last Sunday but failed to finish all the events. This was
chiefly due to some abnormal scor-
iag, especially in the competition for
the Howay modal. In the Ilrst round
Kesserieh got 24, which, as he had
a handicap oi one in the 25, made
his score a possible. Wright and
Ktunsby got 21 each, and Messrs.
Wargo, MeGarrigle and Dier each
got 20. In the second round Kesserieh only got 18, whioh, with his
start, mado his total 44-. Wright
again made 21, which gave him a
tie with Kesscrlch. Hepple on
scratch, got 21, which, with 19 in
tho flrst round, put him only one behind and Wargo, allowed 4, also
ceaohod a total of 48. Kesserieh and
Wright have thus to shoot off for
final.
\niong other events was a Jack

LONDON, Sopt. 12. - Alarmed 1-v
the outbreak of tho vast army of unemployed In all tho large cities in
tho United Kingdom, particularly jn
Glasgow, the ministry is holding a
series of informal conferences on
plans to minimize the suffering during the coming winter.
So grave is tho situation that the
government refuses to admit publicly that it notices it, fearing that
this would attract attention to conditions for which it 'is hard to flud
a   remedy.
Throughout England, Scotland end
Wales it is estimated that ono million workmen are idle, and with
their families a total of flvo million
persons are nt tho point of starvation. 'Of this number a considerable
proportion is actually shelterless, is

VICTORIA, Sopt. 15.—A gruesonio
discovery, was mnde in the woods
near Alberni yesterday. J. McDonald, visiting his son-in-law, F. W.
Gibson, of Cherry Creek, was passing through the bush on tho Woodward road, when ho came on the
skull of a man, and promptly notified tho police. An examination was
made ond near the skull was a boot
and two leg bones of the leg below
tho kneo. A few feet from where the
skull was found wns a piece otskin,
apparently n part of tho scalp with
a fow gray hairs still adhering to
it. Thero was also a small remnant of nn ear. Otherwise tlio bones
wero completely hare.
Some ton or fifteen yards away
woro portions of the unfortunnto
man's clothing. Ho had worn a
pair of dork tweed pants, an undershirt and an upper shirt with a collar on it. No hat, coat nor vest
wero found, nor any trace of anything that might have boon in tho
pockots. Deceased had worn a common leathor belt, which was in n
fair state of preservation.
Thero Is no moans of establishiag

taraoou with Every.Mark of
Respect.
The funeral' of the late Frederick
William Greaves who died on Tuesday aa the result oi ou ax-cident sus-
ttained in Extension mine the some
day, toolJ plnco from tho family residence un Roberts street yesterday
afternoon. Tho resuoct and esteem
m which the deceased was held was
shown by the large number who followed the remains to the cemetery,
und tlie still larger crowd which was
gathered there to witness the interment. The mines, as it happened,
were idle, and thus na opportunity
was allordod to all his fellow workmen to attend the funeral, and never has there been a bigger concourse
of people seen in the local cemetery-
Tho deceased was buried under tho
auspices of the local lodge of Masons. The members turned out almost at full strength and marched up to the hill to the Greaves
family residence in full regalia. The
hearse when it left the stricken
house, was loaded with floral tributes, and even then it was impossible to take all the beautiful tokens
of sympathy which had been sent in.
A vory small percentage of the
funeral procession was able to flnd
scats iu St. J ohn's Mission Church,
where the Rev. R. A. Heath conducted the services and quite a number of these had to stand. The Ladysmith Male Voice party, of which
deceased waB acting president, w as
there in a body aud together with
their conductor, Mr. J. n. Morgan.,
and led tho singing in the   Church.
At the graveside, after the Vicar
and concluded the Church services,
the ritual of the Masonic Order was
performed, The office, which is a
beautiful piece of prose, was impressively rendered by Mr. John Stewart, and ut its conclusion the Male
Voico Party sang "Jesus Lover of
My Soul."
This concluded the services at tho
grave All that is mortal of Fred.
Greaves now reposes Ln the small,
hillside cemetery hardly won from
the wilds of hush and forest. There
with every mark of respect, the deceased was consigned to his last resting place.
VOTE, OF CONDOLENCE
At the meeting of the Ladysmith
Male Voice Party last night the secretary, on'the motion of Mr. J. M.
Morgan, seconded by Mr. John
Thomas, was instructed to convey to
Mrs, Greaves and family, the condolence of the party. Mr. Morgan said
the news of the death of their president had come as a terrible shock
to him, and he spoke in the highest
terms of praise of Mr. Greaves as a
man, and expressed his great appreciation of the services the deceased
had rendered the party. His death
was a gtreat blow tp them. He could
not express his own sorrow and ho
would like for the family and es; c
dally Mrs. Greaves, to receive from
the party an expression of their
sympathy with her in hor terrible
bereavement.

___> ELECTIONS
The Dominion elections will take
place on October -'Oth. The ao-
_oi_tceuie_t has been made officially,
and all doubts as to an election
taking place this fall are now set
at rest. Rather better than six
weeks have been given to the candidates, and this is surely a long enough period lor the tight to last.
In our own inlinedlate coast district
everything is ready and everyone is
prepared i'or tbo battle. The candidates are all iu the Held; and the
preliminaries ore now at an end.
Jn Vancouver, Victoria, and our own
district, the Conservuthe party is
represented by ablo and powerful
standard-bearers, and ixx the Capital
City particularly the liveliest hopes
are entertained of a great Conservative   victory
In the ap-l~_ of the words. There
[are many rhymes in Pope which,
whilo perfect to the eye, Jar on the
[ear according to modern pronunciation, and it may be taken for granted that the fashion of speaking has
undergone some alteration. "Sea"
I {apparently was pronounced liko
'say," and "tea" took the Irish
pronunciation of "toy," Other ex-
l—inples might be given all of which
tend to prove that what is right today la wrong tomorrow.
The Colonist sums the matter   up
by the rather bold    assertion   that
tbe standard    of correct pronunciation can most safely be token   from
the cultured classes.    In   a   general
way this    statement may be   true;
but wo have noticed that   evon   the
Cultured betray in tholr speech   certain   localisms.      For instance, the
men of Oxford have certain mannerisms and Inflections in their   speech
which   distinguish   them   from   the
I men of Cambridge, und   their   pronunciation of a number of words   is
sheer sacrifice ot some weighty vowel.    .We  are not   referring   to    the
| finicky lecturers who persist in giving three syllables to '''conscience,"
'ocean," and kindred words, but   to
such    simple    units    of   speech   as
'boat,"    "road,"    "here," -"there,"
[and su forth.    An uneducated North
countryman says '"heor," when    he
means    to    say    either    "here"   or
'hear," and our local remittance men
say "ho-'ar" for both words.  Solar
as correctitude is concerned tlie pitman is no    worst,    than his 'college
contemporary.    Take also smart   society's    murderous      treatment     of
"roally,    and   kindred    exclamatory
words, and the conclusion is inevitable that tbe   English tongue is   as
much abused by the cultured   as   it
is by tho uneducated.     We   suppose
that as fn orthography,  the, stu»i<
ard of orthoepy will vary and change
with fashion and custom; but   even
then   the   destruction   of a leadingi
vowel, or the arbitrary alteration of
.quantity or sound can never be right
The well of English pure and   unde-
filod,    has   no    flourishes, and   the
strength and beauty of our   mother
tongue Is only weakened by over re-
flnement.    Certainly the standard of
the cultured is perhaps the most   re-
llioble; but even thon it is marred by
'mannerism and local idiosyncrasy

PRONUNCIATION.
The Victoria Colonist had an interesting articlo the other day on
pronunciation. Our contemporary
drew, attention to a growing tendency locally to pronounce words as
they ore spelt, which way, of course,
has a huge crop of errors. Since
Chaucer first gave established form
to written English thero has been a
constant change and modification going on both ln the pronunciation
and spelling of words. Chaucer hiin-
■elf. Judging by the M. S. S. that
have come down to us, had no set
stundard; and, of course, he gath-
eied up thc southern dialects to the
exclusion of those of the north. The
influence of theso dialects, which aro
today, throughout tho United Kingdom, ns strong as ever they wore,
and ln many cases tho modified pro.

ing to wounds and ovon murder.
Crimes resulting from debauchery,
which horotoforo havo not been a con
spicuous feature of tho debasod classes in Japan, are now obviously on
the increase. Foreigners no longer
find it quite safe to wander alone or
unprotected among the beautiful valleys and hills that environ so many
of the Japanese cities.
Robberies and hold-ups that used
to bo almost unknown are now not
infrequent. Even on the public
streets foreign women have been relieved of tholr purses in broad lay-
light after tho manner of towns in
the so-called "Wild Wost."
Tho authorities seem- either holp-
loss or indifferent to the urgency of
the circumstances. Tho polico force
of all Japanese cities is no doubt inadequate to .the extent of duty devolving upon guardians of tho law,
being much weakor in calibre and
numbers than tho forco in similar
communities abroad. And tho fow
thoro aro appear to ho either in constant fear of tho criminal classes or
deficient in the initiative necessary
to tho capturo and punishment of the
offenders. The Japanese policemen
does not patrol tho streets ns in
Europe or America; ho keeps his
measured watch at what is known
as a polico box, a place often difficult to find, and tho criminal 'eels
perfectly freo to oporato at a safe
distance from this station.
Tho night watchman of towns nnd
cities go about banging two pieces of
hardwood together, tho constant
clapping keeping the criminal aware
of tlio exact spot the watchman is
in. and so enabling him to escape
detection.
It Is tho conviction of most foreign residonts in this country that
the root of tho trouhlo lies in tlio
fact that tho olllcers of the law aro
really in deadly fear of the criminal
classes. Every Juiuincso criminal
carries a concoaled weapon, nnd the
murdor of policemen is a fr.quent
occurrence.
Tho average citizen of Japan appears to havo littio confidence In tho
law as an arbiter of tho wrongs ho
suffers: in fact, ho mora frequently
takes the law into his own hands,
Among the lower classes the appeal
is not to tho authorities, but to the
fist or to tho knife, and not infrequently to the yet moro fatal short
sword.
A rather significant featuro of   development among tho criminal class
es   in Japan is the   increasing    frequency    of   piracy along the coasts
and inland seas of tho cinpiro.    Tho
Japanese havo boon known to plunder wrocks thnt had beon abandoned
but an attack upon cargo in transit
has not hitherto been known.    How
