Port Coquitlam. Nov. 17.���With two
steel tanks weighing 2600 pounds on
board a heavy steam truck owned by
Tipper and company, hauling contractors of Vancouver, sunk partially
through thc planking of the bridge
which crosses the Coqultlam river on
the Pitt River road yesterday afternoon and was only extricated by the
use of Jacks after Beveral hours' work.
The bridge itself, which is located
Just outside the limits of the city was
rendered dangerous and closed.
The steam truck was on Its way to
the Coquitlam Shipbuilding yards when
the accident occurred. A wooden
sloping approach to the bridge was
negotiated ln safety. As soon as the
the machine rested with its four
wheels on the bridge proper, however,,
the rear wheels wer.t down with a
crash, the truck only being sustained
from a complete drop into the river
by some sustaining timber a'oout two
feet underneath the plauklug.

Nanaimo, Nov. 17.���There is a strong probability that
the strike in the coal mining district on Vancouver island
will be settled this week. A. D. Ackland, deputy minister
of labor, from Ottawa has had a long consultation with
the leaders on both sides and it is believed that the ultimate result of his intervention will be that the men will
return to work in the course of a week. One feature of
the settlement will be that non-union men will be admitted
into the union.
All the questions under dispute, and the remedies suggested for them have yet to be submitted to the workers,
but it is anticipated that they will accept the decision that
their leaders have arrived at. Already a large number of
men are at work and the general belief is that inside of a
couple of weeks, providing nothing untoward happens, the
bulk of the strikers will be at work again.

The way to get business is to go after it and, while
some of the department stores of the east have set a commendable example of their whole-heated efforts to cor-
rall trade, the results are likely to be anything but satisfactory to those of the public who read the newspapers
and place faith in them.
It come sas a startling revelation to that much-re-
ferred-to individual, the man in the street, to learn that
nine big dailies in Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg are
practically controlled by large mail-order houses.
To the man in business in a smaller way this spells
trouble and already the trade journals have taken up the
matter, urging the retailers throughout Canada to get together and, if possible, devise some means to meet the difficulty.
But the taking over of some of the big newspapers of
the east by the mail order houses creates another danger.
It brings those journals under the suspicion of being
nothing more nor less than catalogues for the businessmen who own them, sent through the mails in the guise of
newspapers, while it generally tends to cheapen the immense and helpful influence which a well administered :
press always has been recognized as possessing.   To make

Toronto, Nov. IT. Is it possible lhat
the people of Canada with the greatly
increased facilities for the study of
domestic economy so close at hand,
know practically nothing about pre-
pnrlng the many savory and tasty
dishes that are possible to the thrifty
housewife, from the "rough cuts" of
the butcher shop? And yet this is
just the condition wlllch il has been
found exists, upon consulting reliable
sources of Information. The inability
or unwillingness of the greater pari of
the consuming public to use nothing
liut the best and the highest priced
veal or pork, is, moreover, a serious
consideration in th*1 minds of those
purveyors who now face the big problem of feeding Canada's millions during the coming winter at a cost to
the consumer which will be inevitably
^the highest in the history of this city.
The manager of perhaps the largest institution ln Toronto supplying
lhe people of tbis city with meat products, said that many of the smaller
dealers In meats would have the greatest difficulty during the next six
months in keeping their shops open.
"Even now." he said, "our butchers
arc at their wits' end to know how
to supply Iheir customers on a profitable basis. Kvery person asks for the
choice cuts of meat, and there is a
very, very narrow margin of profit In
this high priced trade, simply because
the greater part of a quarter of beef
or of the other meats is made up nf
the coarser and rougher cuts." The
price of live cattle, he explained, had
advanced fiftfi n per cent. In Toronto
In tho last mi -i'h, and the present
price will not ., .-ode, bnt undoubtedly will continue, to advance, throughout the winter months.
With the Increasing cosi of the live
animals, and ihe disinclination of the
people to purchase the dressed product
In any other form than "steaks." "sir-

forethought and preparedness NOW by purchasing useful and acceptable gifts for Christmas giving, at about
half regular prices. Everything in the store will be sacrificed with no regard for cost or loss. You owe it to

Byck, the veteran rowing coach, now
I at Syracuse, will be engaged to coach
the Yale crews next spring, according to gossip In sporting circles here.
A meeting of the Yale rowing committee will be beld ln this city within
a few days, and It is expected that a
radical change in the Yale navy will
be announced, Including the engagement of Ten Kyck.
Yale's experiment during the paat
two seasons with tbe Kngiish system
cf rowing haa been deemed generally
a failure, as the entire crewB have
been consistently defeated. Alumni
and undergraduate* qwe said to have
been aroused In opposition to further
experiments with the Kngiish aystem,
whicb hss included the adoption ot
English shells and English oars as
well as English training methods. It
comes from unofficial sourccB that W.
A. Harrlman. of New York, who la the
head conch at Yale, has himself come
to tbe conclusion thut tbe English
stroke will not do.

Government Entomologist Learns Valuable   Lessons   On   Recent   Trip

in the course of which he Inspected

lie also extended hls trip to ('alitor
nla, I!1.1)1 nnd Idaho, for the purpose
of studying at firBt hand the methods
of dealing with insect pests In those
stales. At present Canada Is threat
emll with the Introduction of new
pests and It was with u view of preparing for the sontSSt that the doctor took
this triu.
In California, v>here they am constantly receiving shipments from the
Orient,  he  found   the  best  organized
system of   inspection   of   lm ported
plants and fruit on tho I'acific coast.
ln this statu they carry on a war
against pens by means of parasites,
and also through the ubo of local Insects lu a wonderful way. They collect lady bugs, the chief enemies of
plant lice, in sections where lhey occur, and distribute them In sections
where they are not found. Last year
they distributed of theae parasite In-
HOctMaboul a ton lu single quantities
to melon growers und others. These
lady bugs spread at a grent rate and
did a wonderful amount of good. In
themselves they are quite harmless.
Wrong   Conception.
"It l,i quite a popular misconception," said the doctor, "to think that
tbOSS puraslli s can themselves become
Injurious. They feed on their particular hosts nud should lhey ut any
time vanquish their hosts so far as to
kill them off entirely, they would disappear also, As a matter of fact, however, they are nlwuys a sufficient number of the insects left to maintain the
While In California the doctor visited the state and the Leland Stanford universities and was mucb In

from Kurope and han now become a

alfalfa Is gronn very largely under Irrigation. The pest Is spreading along
the llne of the railways and coming
north towards the Canadian border
Th" doctor studied the means taken
for the dlspSTSSj" of the Insect to pre
vent, If possible, Ils artificial produc
tion. as Its natural spread is Inevitable, though active measures will be
taken to keep It under Control The
lessons learned In the United States,

way preparations are being made for
lhe invasion, which wlll certainly come
through the natural spread of the Insect r.
lu  the  meantime the  parasites are
belne  taught   to  attack  some  of our
native   Insects   and   do  good   In   this
way.    This  work  hus  been  going on
!for two yearB nnd  has  been  particularly successful the lasi summer, one
lot these  parasites havo  been  Import-
led   and   distributed   to   the   extent   of
fifty thousand nnd a second one to the
number   of   six   thousand.   They   nre

Tbelr guide produced a candle, lighted

Under u canopy of richly embroidered su tin there sat on a cushioned
