President Wilson as to the attitude o. :
the Democrats towards the measure, j
which    was originally    a  Republican I
one.   The reply obtained was that a.- i

there   was  no  possibility  of  ratifica

session.    Since Mr.  Hazcn's visit    11
has  been  learned  that  owing  to  the
fact that in  the  United  States tliere
are  no  uniform  fisheries regulations,
each state  being allowed to pass Its
own  fisheries laws,    the  treaty  will
meet with  much opposition at Washington,    lt is five years    since    the

Local Lacrosse Boys Take no Chances
It ���Jones Asks for Meeting of the
B. C.  L.  A.
In the darkest hour, there Ib still
hope, thinks Con Jones, for yesterday
the Vancouver magnate came through
with a wire to Acting Secretary Gil-
ohr.st, of tin. Ii. c. I.. A., with a re-
il'iest that a meeting of tbe association be called in the immediate future.
That looks like business, lt certainly looks as if the adding machines
put in use by Jones in the earlier part,
of the week huve completed their
taik, with the result that the credit
.side la Bo underbalanced that a break
up at tbe present time would mean
disaster, not only to the lacrosse club,
but to tin' subsidiary concern, to wit,
the billiard and pool emporium.
The Victoria Trip.
Veaterllay it became known lhat the
trip to Victoria made by Jones the
day previous was not for the purpose
it trying to laud a team In the Capital Ciiy. as given out by a Vancouver
paper, but reallv t\i test the feeling
i f the Victoria delegates before Jones
would aak for an association meeting.
li was given out that Bome of the Vlc-
tcria ih legates were inclined to
���switch over their support to the Vancouver manager, so us to let him down
easy when it comes io facing the
music of the Westminster club.
When seen regarding thiB, several
of the Westminster executive were
(irmly of the opinion that they would
stand fur no such monkeywork and
.[unci would have to whistle for lacrosse games a long while before they
would submit to any woolpulling of
such a nature.
Meanwhile, Mannger Clifford is preparing for a game on the Queens park
i val Baturday arternoon. No Intimation has come over from Vancouver
regarding what action they will take,
but a strong suspicion exists that
Jones will appear on ihe grounds with
bis hired help just In time to play
the scheduled game, bo as to queer
tiie rr.-m| that would attend should
it be Known dellniti iy that there
would be a game.

President Kellington yesterday appointed Hi b Dewar und Stanley Peele

Still   another   feature   cropped     up
yesterday when Manager Gilford received another letter from the Calgary sport promoter regarding the

Hoyals through the prairies, ln hia
l.tter he stated that he could command the aervlces of Hilly Fitzgerald.

The Drink ��� Young Business Man Hsd
te Have Before Lunch.
In New York city tbere la a man
wbo once paid $0,000 for a cocktail.
Be did not know It then, and be never
wlll know It unless he happens to read
this story.
A certain prosperous manufacturing
company needed a new departmental
manager. The salary was $0,000 a
year. The officers of tbo company
considered a great many candidates
i and at last decided to offer the position
to a clever young man of unusual business ability. He seemed to be exactly
tbe man for that particular place. The
president nnd general manager Invited
tbe young man to lunch with tbem at
a downtown club, ostensibly to talk
over a less important business matter.
Tbey wanted to -look blm over" just
; once more.
Tbe mnn met them at the appointed
j bour,  and  the president  anxious to
I mnke the occasion a pleasant one, or
I dered   sn   elaborate   luncheon.   The
j waiter was a long time In bringing
tbe first course, and the guest began
i to appear 111 at ease.    He seemed absent-minded  and   uninterested   In  tbe
! conversation.   Iio twisted nbout ln bis
ll is not j chair nnd tapped his fingers nervously
' ,!" '" ! upon tbe table.   Finally be turned to-
: ward  the president and said almost
| desperately, "Would  you   mind  very
j much If I ordered a cocktnll?"   Then
I he flushed n little nnd offered a laughing apology for making the request
I    The other men exchanged surprised
i nnd significant glances, but tbey called
Ithe  wnlter nnd  ordered  tlie cocktail.
: Wheu It came the guest drank It eagerly,    ln a few moments he had become another mnn���the  man of keen
vision niul quick  mind, who could be
so useful In their great business. There
was no more preoccupation lu his mnn-
i ner, no shifting nlimit In bis cbalr.  He
was alert, eager, clear bended.

Teaching Students
Reforesting operations In Ontario
had their beginning in the establishment of a forestry department at the
Ontario Agricultural college in 1904.
Here the agricultural student was
trained in tree planting and care ot
woodlands, and nurseries were established to produce young forest
trees sit'tPble for reulanting. From
these planting material was distributed throughout the province to replen
ish the farmer'B wooalots and to bpi
out land unsuited for agriculture.
The opening of the Norfolk forest
station in l!lu9 enlarged the scope ol
the work, because it took up the act
ua] reclamation of waste land by re
planting. The province now owns
about 1500 acres at this noint. Verv

has been a financial success. This
fact marks an epoch In the hiBtory of
the institution, and. according to Manager Richardson, not only has the fair
paid its way this year, but it will at
the same time suffice to clear off thn
deficit of 1912 and perhaps 1911 as

firBt time reached the high water

Eigger Receipts Made.
Tlie increase In tho gate and grand-
Stand receipts, however, the manager
states, will Bhow an Increase In greater proportion over last year than the
figures oi attendance would tend to
prove. For example, the grandstand
receipts of 1912 were $82,000, While
thfs year they will le $36,000, This
is without counting th sales at the
various stores in the city, which have
yet to be estimated, as the returns
not yet beeu received from these.
Less From Concessions.
Tlie revenue thiB year from conces-
eisons was slightly less than last year.
The tightness of monev, was the reason for this, as people did not have
the money to lay out for the purposes.
The revenue from the pari-mutuels
was greater than last year, and much
business was done there. The reason
for the large increase In the grandstand receipts Is thai last year the
weather often Interfered with the performances and kept people .from the
stand, while this year the weather
was all that could be desired, and
there was never a time when tiie performances were really interfered with
for any lngth of time.
Mr. Richardson said he was highly
delighted with the great success attending the fair, as wore all tbe-directors of the institution. All the farmers
and exhibitors staled that they were
very well satisfied with the way in
which the fair was conducted.

Toronto, July 10.���Another big tern
perance battle Is being planned foi
l.y the Ontario drys. It wlll be a g.Mi
oral attack by the provincial execu
tlve of the Domlnli ��� Alliance, ol
which Rev. Canon l.reene la presi
dent, and Rev. B. II. Spence secretary
and campaign manager.
The mosl Important feature Is lhe
fact (hat the Rowell-AUiatice pact on
tered into by provincial convention
at Masspy ball Is being shelved, and
n new policy with respect lo local op
Hon substituted, i'he latter Is the sub
stitutioii of the Dominion fur the On
tarlo local option uct.
Mr. Howell's "banish-lhe-bar" plan
Is found by the Alliance field utafl
to evoke practically no active support
in the constituencies, The re-election
by acclamation of Hon. I. B. Lucas
was u case In point. The temperance
leaders (here were content to treat
the temperance issue as a municipal
rather than a provincial issue. Thai
and other developments have, the al
Mane? executive assumes, justified
Rev. Ben II. Sponce's attitude in thr
Allancc convention committee. The
Alliance secretary, althougb opposed
by his brother F. S. Spence, argued
that the Alliance should continue to
operate on local option lines, by mean
cf field secretaries, in co-operation
with the local temperance bodies, ra
ther than by organizing a provincial
campaign for the enactment of the
Rowell "banlBh-the-bar" proposal. The
Alliance field secretaries find that
this policy keeps the Whitney temperance electors in the ranks ��idp hi
Bide with the Rowell men, while Ihe
organization on Iiie oilier line would
cause an immediate cleavage.
Next in Importance to the shelving
of provincial prohibitory legislation
as an immediate issue is the re-adnp
lion of (he modernized Old Canada
temuoranee act of ISIS. One of the
main reasons for tbls is that it onl>
requires a majority vote instead nl
three fifths, but It only recognizes the
male vote. Its adoption in Manltoul
In Islind caused tiie Alliance to be
flooded with letters for information
from the drys nil over Ontario, The
Alliance executive has IsBued a d'gest
of the Canada Temperance Act. and
a comparison in' it.i previsions with
thVse of the Whl neyllanna local op
tlon act. The preference is for the
latter where a preponderance of tern
perance sentiment  is evidenced.
The Alliance official organ is out
with a leading editorial on the Ontar
io situation, and baa the significant
conclusion, "it will be practically

Bitulithic Paving!
The Most Scientific of all Pavings i
Is meeting with the greatest favor wherever laid.
Cobalt, Ont., July 10.���It is now definitely established that there are telluride ores at the Hurrlcanaw camp
in northern Quebec. Jack Callinan
gave a specimen! of ore from the Maloney claim to a Cobalt assayer. He
found that it contained petizite.
The specimens of pet.zlte from Hurrlcanaw was taken from the same
vein which produced such very remarkable specimens of native gold.
The high grade veins are still narrow, but within four feet there are
four or live of them.
The Hurricanaw camp was discovered  before  Kirkland  lake had  demonstrated  the fact  that  narrow  rich
gold  veins  might  be  worth  working.
Al]   previous   experience   in   Ontario,
Porcupine Included, had gone to show
that unless gold veins measured sev- i
oral feet across it was waste  of  money
to attempt to develop them.    Therefore little interest was taken in Hurricanaw.    Now that it haB been demonstrated  that  the  Hurricanaw  leads
contain ores somewhat similar In nature to those found at  Kirkland lake
the camp will attract more attention.
The   Hurricanaw     district     is     in
northern   Quebec   and   is   reached   by
water from the crossing of the Hurrlcanaw  river  on  the Transcontinental   railway   about  130   miles  east  of
Cochrane.    Winter  or  summer  there,
will be no difficulty in transportalon.
ln summer all supplies can be taken  |

Can a license holder refuse to sei.-

regarding the refusal of the proprietoi
'of the Stratford -hotel to serve drink
to a colored  man.    In  his complaint
jthe lawyer intimated that his ins:ruc

courts in the event of the board re ,

Steveni, the license holder, who was
presi ut  In  person, explained tliat    in
j the   locality   In   which  he   was  doing
business, there was a negro population
of  nearly  500, and  if he  served  one
he would have to serve all who wish
ed to  buy  from  him.    This, he  said
would be, detrimental to bis business
and would hinder liini from keeping a
strictly  HrSt   class  hotel.    After  con
Rlderable  discussion  cf ihe  question I
involved,   the commissioners  unanim

Consolation for tbe par'ial failure
cf tlie strawberry crop, due to v-1
weather, comes In the fact that this

While the offerings today will not be
abundant, still good shipments will b���;
on hand. II is likely that today will
see the last .locally griwn strawberries, except perhaps a very few of
the late varieties.
The reason assigned fnr .ti improvement in the ccfndltlou of ohor
ries is that while excessive rain bas
split and blighted some among the
early varieties, the later ones are better able to stand the wet. Okanagan
