The city council met last nighl In
usual  weekly  session.    The proposed
agreement between the u. c. B, it
oompany, Ihu city council and thl
Dominion government In regard to
Coqultlam lake was read, ami subject
lo ihe sanction tf tbe Dominion guv
ernment, it will be referred to ii i
plebiscite uf the ratepayers of Ihe I
city.
The terms or the agreement are
substantially what was shadowed
fnrlh In The News of Saturday. The
principal items are that the company
having   obtained   a grant   of   lo.no i!
inchea of water in Lake Coqultllam In
1808 agree to Klve 1000 Inches of this
to the fit j. if required, In addition to1
what the city are entitled to lake al

The company Bhall  pay  all the ex-
pensea   of   litigation,    solicitors   and
counsel'! fees, already Incurred by the j
cily not to exceed a blank sum.
In  addition  lhe company  shall  pay ,
a sum of Jl 1.000 down, anil an annua!
sum of 11000.
In return the cltv agrees to re
lluqullb Its rights lo the land round
lhe lake.
The mayor said that all that was
required last night was to go on
record thut if the Dominion government sanctioned the agreement the
COUnoIl would put It before the rate
payers for their approval or dlsap-
proval. If the Dominion governmen'
���auctioned it there would likely be
public meetings ami every councillor
would have an opportunity of explain
lng his attitude on the platform.
The subject then dropped.
Ctreet Improvements.
City Knglneer Ulacknian wrote wllh
reference to the Columbia street im
provements opposite the Dominion
government property. He suggested

The commit Ue consider It a matter
of regret thai more frequent sound
Ings of the channel wore not taken
by lhe pilot, but this seems to be due
to a misunderstanding ou the part of
the pilot board and the pilot as to the
facilities at their disposal through the
Dominion department of publiic work-i
to enable the pilot to mak ��� such
soundings.
The chairman of the committee,
with Captain Mayers, of the pilot

were by him notified that whenever

a large ship coming in the Samson
or other boat will be sent specially
for that purpose.
The pilot will also bc afforded ac i

CHURCH FOR HOTEL
TRADE NOT COMPLETE
Presbytery of Westminster Must Decide en Exchange���One Woman
Opposed to Deal.
Coquit'am, Aug. 25��� It Is now practically up to the Presbytery of Westminster to decide whether the congregation of St. Andrew's Presbyterian
church should accept the proposition
of a local hotelkeeper, W. Kou ley, to
evchanre a portion of the elte on
which the church at present stands for
a double corner on Shaughnessy and
Marpole streets.
The congregation met this evening
and a vote was taken. The result waa
rather complicated and because of the
fact that the vote of tbe members
could not be called representative, lt
was decided to appoint a deputation to
attend the next meeting of tbe Presbytery giving that body the final aay
ln tbe matter.
Speeches In favor and against were
���made from varied viewpoints, one
lady urging that aa a religious body
the congregation should have nothing
to do with the proposition.

TARDY ACTION.
Word comes from Europe that tiie powers have decided lo investigate the atrocities committed during the
Balkan war, a great number of which they might have
prevented had they possessed less regard for red tape and
more for the preservation of human life.
it is not to be expected that all the tales which were
seat out of unbelievable tortures perpetrated'on the in-J
hwbiianLs of captured towns were true, but enough has*
been ascertained to prove that the fight between the allies
and the Turks and the more recent campaign of the allies
against Bulgaria were marked by deeds tlmt make reports
��< the happenings of the dark ages look like mild attempts
at nastiness.
The powers couldn't interfere, even though hundreds
were murdered and outraged weekly, simply because each
wviis too busy watching that the other didn't profit by the
trouble in the Balkans. There would have been too many
questions of precedence to settle to allow of any effective
interference, so the semi-civilized mountaineers were per-
nu'itfcd to hack, burn and torture at their own sweet wills,
so long as it was done under the cloak of war.
Now tliere is to be an investigation and, likely as not,
there will be no punishments, or if there are, the wrong
ones will get the blame.

Wages are high in Lancashire, much

cannot be suggested that the mortality is due to the results of low wages,

thing Infinitely alluring In the idea
of a walking tour through Japan, the
land of romance, ttie precocious child
ol the great far east To tramp all
day amongst some of the most mag
nifloent scenery In the world, amid
the scent of mullberricB and swaying
medlars; to blOte a steady trail where
mountain alternates wltb valley and
where climatic agencies have smooth

abrupt, until an Impression ut iindu

town where the fret and hurry of mo

Such has been the pleasant experience ot Lindley Crease, the well-

Interesting al a time when lhelr pres

so much debate, and about whom, in

Mr. Crease Is evidently a firm believer in tbe motto which advises

Unless the light promoter! iuw d
in lecurlng a better opponent than
Kay Campbell, of rfan Francisco, to
dash wltb Willie Ritchie at lirig-
bouie on l-abor Day there will be few-
fans who will make tin- trip, even
though the prices ure considerably re
duced.
From press agency stuff handed out
from the Vancouver headquarters ot
Harry Pollok, Itltchie Is to receive
$2f/0U a week during the time the big
light is being poitponed and in
able to spend a vacation in the Canadian Rockies.
And this t'i'.ii'i is secured by sending a man of Campbell'! calibre

over Hyland has found the going hard

What the fans demand for a Labor

basis, something on the plane of a
Bayley-Valae affair.
As it is now Ritchie can stow

In an effort to stop the onward
march of the Ail-Stars, Manager
Graham of the Mooae yesterday decided ou a radical change in his lineup, which he expects will more tht>n
suffice to bring home the bacon.
l.arkin and (iay will be the battery,
following the former's performance at
Kraser Mills on Sunday wheu he allowed but four hits.
This will place Huhnke and Horne
In the outer gardens alcng with Mallen. while Williams will be brought
in to cover sveond sack.
Such an aggregation should
strengthen practically every place In
the team, except first and third and
the Inovaiion will be watched with
interest bv the fans this evening.
Manager Silver is relying on the
same In,-up as defeated the Moose
on Tuesdav evening in the now famous lour Inning contest. Tonight's
battle is scheduled to start promptly
at 6:15 o'clock in order that five or
more Innings may be played.
NEW   SHOW   TOMORROW.
--^���-^���-^��������������������������������������������*-^*--^mm�����
have been playing a great game this
summer and will require watching
when  they turn out.  at Queens park.
The unexpected happened last evening. Tom (SharkeyI Gifford, manager
of the world's champions, turned out
In a uniform. This was the first time
since last season that Tom had tried
his hand with the stick, but the wire
from (Ieorge Kennedy had turned the
trick.
From the statements issued bv
Manager Fitzgerald, of the Coquitlam
baseball team, it would seem that th"
Moose should come through with an
offer of a game or else disclaim any-
alleged hold on the championship cf
the lower mainland. Fitz has played
a square game this season and it la
only right that he receive one iu return.
The City team of the City Soccer
league will meet this evening in
Ityall's office for lhe purpose of reorganizing.

net sufficient to pass the test.

Moscow, Idaho, Aug.    25.    Smut    is
found   in   the   wheat   since   threshing
start",!  Monday  in this neighborhood
Ito such an extent that ll makes the
i operation of separators extremely dan-
jgerous. A number have already blown
| up or  exploded  and   Iwo  have   been
burned this season.    The (ilrard, An-
'derson  ���&���   Nlcholff outfit  wits pracli-
Ically   destroyed   yeBterday   and     the
! aack sewer was reported badly burned.    The Crane &  Andrews separator
was also reported destroyed by a smut
explosion.
Edward Snow, of Snow brothers,
large lantl owners and farmers, four
miles south of Moscow, who are harvesting their 600-acre wheat crop, report smut us being worse than usual
in this country.
Caution Is required in handling the
wheat threshing A number of the
threshing outfits have taken out Insurance. There is also much danger
from fire burning the entire crop when
an explosion occurs from smut In a
separator.
The combustion occurs with lightning like rapidity and Is usual;,- followed by instantaneous spread of fire
in the immediate vicinity of the separator where the smut fills the air.

MURDER AT VICTORIA
IS DEEP MYSTERY
llinrj   of  Campbell   on   Old   Reserve
a   Crutal  Affair���Police Baffled
at the  Start.
Victoria,  Aug.   IS,   A   particularly
tliab  lit-al act  was that of the murder
or of Samuel Campbell, an the evidence al tlie inqUBIt on Friday afternoon disclosed it. There were no less
Ihan nine bullet wouiuIh in the body,
all  passing through  trunk or limbs,
That It was not the act of a drunken man the pollce are certain. There
is none of Hie uncertainly of aim lhat
one would expert to find In sueh a
eaae. Everyone of the bullets found
Its   billet    within   a   space   of   twelve
Inches square.
A   Maniac's Job
It would be the sort ol thing lhat
a lunatic mini,i lm expected to do, or
a person who bad been seized with
a liomoi.ldal mania, but then It m tl
nitre than probable that there would th
haye been other victims among the
men who spend their nights on the
i id reserve where the body was found
The police have no report of any
escape Iron, an asylum nor of anyone
being at. large suspected of insanity,
and n does nut seem as If any inquiry
along that line would be of service.
Time  Only   Surmised
',s < i the time of tlie murder it can
onlv I" Burmlsed, Dr, Raynor said
ai tlie inquesl that ihe stage of decomposition would warrant a belief
that the man had been dead for at
least :i wflSli This would be account
ed for, however, by lhe greal lout of
Hi,* past few daya Less than six
days intervened between Campbell being last Been and the finding of hls
body. It ib ihe theory of the police
and It iB supported by the probabilities that the murder took place on
Friday night last or early Saturday
morning, Thut it must bine taken
pill'"- at night Ib absolutely certain,
as nine shots coultl never be fired
on an;, part ol the reserve during tlie
daytlmi without someone bearing
them.
A   Mystery
Everything points to Campbell finding bis way over lo the reserve some
time after Iie was last seen and hav
Ini; crepl In behind a fence or beneath a bush lo sleep. He placed an
nui   f-.aok.   such   as   men   of   Ills   class
i irry their blanket in. under his head,
lay down oh his back and pulled an
',:,l bedspread over hun
Hn: tins ailils tu the mystery of hll
Bb  ���!::*.'      At   iiiklit   it   would  be prac
il all) Impossible to see him where he
was lying, (nil even hy daylight intiir.
illd  pass within a few   yards of 111-'
i p, t and nm notlc him there. It i
11 isib ,- thai the murdi rer might h i-.
already lee:, sleeping mar Hn- tarns
ti., aid resented tue Intrusion, but
if In- did In must hav waited uut*'
lhe Intruder bad laid down before be
fin 1. Audio r theory was folio-', id
Inr against this is the fact thst hc
was not known to have any enemies
and thai there Is an entire absence of
motive so far im can be seen.
The direction taken by the bullets
pr' ves that Campbell was lying down
when he was shot, and though the
wound In the head was fired with th"
muzzle pointed ai an angle of forty-
five  degrees   from  the direction  of
I the other eight wounds. All were in
surh a position as lo fit In wltll the
theory   lhat   the   murdi r r  stood   Im
mediately at Campbell's right should
er and fired polnl blank down at him.
Nine "Zounds
Hr. Raynor found nine distinct bul
let wounds and as many boles of de
parture, or eighteen holes in all. The
first and most Borioua wound, in i'
B��lf   enough   to   cause   Instant   death.
entered at the left side of the nose
and came out two Inches above the
right ear. A second has passed
through the skin and muscle of the
right arm, half way between the
Shoulder and lhe elbow, entering from
the Inner side. The third was a bup
[erficial wound through the skin of
the right forearm. The fourth passed
through the right hand, entering between the thumb and for finger and
pusslni: out through the ring and lit-
f,ngers. smashing the bones of
hand. The other five wcre
thn ugh the rlghl iinst. lacerating
the lung badly and causing a grea'
flow of blood.
So far as the present outlook iB f;r
the discovery of the murderer of Sam
uel Campbell, the police seem to be
up iiKainst a dead wall wiih no means
of getting through or over it.    Every
member nf the plainclothes force and
some of thc uniformed men are busy
on it and every scrap of possible evidence  is  being    closely    scrutinized.
Tbere is an absence of clues and
lhe,.- wero iiti affiliations of lhe dead
ma,, that would furnish any suspicion
of anyone. If the murderer were one
who did not know Campbell, which
the police think possible, the persona!
element may be left out of the question altogether,
Th, red comforter which was lying
over the body when found has been
tract () as one which was lying abou',
tiie bremises of the Empire hotel a
couple of weeks ago li and another
one were lying about loosely where
they were acoissiblo t,, anyone, and
being practically valueless to the
,'iiu.*.,' no ouestion would be made if
anyone walked a Way with them.
Automatic   Used
Further careful of tlle search today,
resulted in the finding of two more
shells, making five In all that have
been found. It ib now almost certain
ihat the revolver used must have
been a. nine-chamber automatic, and
if it was it would mean that It was
fully loaded and thai the murderer
kept pumping away until he had imp
tied ii into the hotly. Who would

that the letter received came as a

tion, and Mr. Heggle has determined
to Increase the flock   to about 3,000, and and Imbue It
to  keep at  least  1,000  ewes  ou   ' '
each year for breeding  purposes
At first the sheep, which had come
direct from the prairies, did not take
kindly to the hills, nor to the long
grass, but once ihe range was cropped
close they  put on  weight  rapidly.
The success of ihe experiment will
undoubtedly result in the establish
ment of a new Industry In the Okanagan valley. Already B movement ls
afoot to urge the government t,, raise
the coyote bounty from M to $5 In order to encourage owners of range
lands to take up sheep raising.
Okanagan valley sheep growers will
have a home market The butchers
of the town of Vernon alone express
willingness to handle from 50 Ho 100
sheep each weak. Al present moat of
the mutton used In the valley Is Imported.
