Fairbanks. Alaska, June 20.���The
ascent of the highest peak of Mount
MeKinley was successfully accomplished for the first time June 7, when
tie party led by Archdeacon Hudson
Stuck, Fpiseopal missionary for
Alaska, accompanied by Robert G.
ITatum, Harry P. Karstens and Walter
Harper, reached the top of the south
peak of the mountain, the highest on
the continent. News of the success
of the expedition was received today
by a messenger sent by Dr. Stuck,
who Ib resting at the base camp. Archdeacon Stuck expects to return to
Fairbanks In August and will go to
New York in October as delegate for
Alaska lo the general convention of
the Episcopal church.
Dr. Sluck and his assistants erected a Blx foot cross on the Btimmit of
the great inontaln. Obseivations made
with the mecurial barometer indicate
the height of the mountain as 20,500
I feet.    Dr.  Stuck  said    this    can    be
(checked by comparing the reading of
Ills barometer with the records taken
at  Fort Gibbon on the Bame date.
The expedition, which left Fairbanks March 13. expected to reach
iiie summit of Mount McKlnley early
in May. but was delayed three weeks
cutting a passage three miles long
through the ice thrown across the
ridge by an earthquake last summer.
The party found much evidence of
seismic disturbances on the upper
ridges. The upper basin shows evidence of a violent upheaval and the
ridges are badly Bhattered, but the
summits are not marred.

Horne Pavne, chairman of the board of directors of
the B. C. E. R.* controlling director in London of thc Mackenzie and Mann interests and chairman of the British
Empire Trust has, to judge by his recent utterings, undertaken to play a role which in size is hardly proportionate
io ihe authoritative and commanding position he holds in
British financial circles by reason of his powerful connections.
With the confidence of a man who really knew thoroughly the subject he was discussing, Mr. Payne condemns Canadian municipal bonds as a poor investment
and enjoins the British security-buyer to purchase railway shares instead.
If Mr. Payne had intimate information on affairs in
every municipality in Canada he might be in a position
to express an opinion and he might not. As it is, he had
no right to speak as he did, knowing, as he must have
known, that what he said would carry considerable weight.
���not because Mr. Horne Payne said it, but because the man
who holds the posts filled by him gave voice to such words.
With all due deference to the person who sits in London and presumes to catalogue Canada's financial risks,
we in New Westminster are still prone to hold to the opinion that Roval Citv bonds are just as good any day as
B. C. E. R. paper or C. N. R. securities, whether Horne
Payne says so or not.
There is another side to the picture and it is not a
nice side.
In view of the London financial man's close connections with Canadian transportation companies, there are
not a few who will take the view that he has deliberately
attempted to sacrifice the welfare of thousands of Canadian municipalities to fatten the treasuries of the roads in
which he and his friends hold stock. This would be a
hard pill for Canadians to swallow, girded about as they
are with unbounded respect for British financial methods,
but. by his own utterances Mr. Horne Payne has laid himself open to a charge which every man in the Dominion
will hope is not true.
Horne Payne occupies some lofty seats in the hub of
the empire, but, in spite of his evident effort to retard
��� expansion in this country, there is hardly li'
slump in our energy simply because he says our nunii
cipal credit is gone.

The deputy minister of public

Montreal, June 20.���Starting cfi
with resolute" faces and determined
attitudes, the band of aldermen chosen to i infer With the hoard of control
on Uie proposed changes In the (rani- j
ways service, got togother bent on
deciding once for all just what suggestions they would adopt.
But Inside of fifteen minutes their
bravery and determination had
changed to absolute confusion and
chaos.    Tht> worthy aldermen  could
make neithi r head nor tail of the
Changes proposed by E, A. Robert, of
the tramway compact, and the counter-changes of (i. H. MacLeod, the engineer for the city.
They Started off determined to consider one by one and side by side the
comparative proposals of tho company
land  the city,    They  went  as far as
I "Suggestion No. 1," and ihe.-. they became hopelessly tangled in a bafTling
] maze of routes nnd turns and transfers.    The  result  was  that  the  confused   aldermen   never     got     beyond
"Suggestion No. 1." In fact, they did
net half consider It.    ' Suggestion No,
1" was their stumbling block nnd they
'did not dare face the sixty odd suggestions which  followed.

Letter from Fiscal Agent in

Victoria, Juno 20.���Intimation! that
at the most favorable possible eon
ttoguncy it would be Bome time before
tho Dominion Securities company
could advance the money for the city
of Victoria bonds underwritten recently, Is contained in a letter from
that company to the city council. The
letter requested that theso facts he-
kept confidential, and a discussion
ladling three-quarters of an hour was
held as to the advisability of excluding the presfl. Aldermen Fullerton
and Humner Bald that tho public must
know the whole truth, ��nd that they
would nol attend any secret session.
while Alderman Cuthbert Bald that
while Be was In favor of the confidential Session he would not remain unless al Ithe others did. Alderman
Dilworth flood with him.
The vote showed that Aldermen
Fullerton and Humber were against
the seen t session, and consequently
the whole four walked out, leaving
the council without the necessary six
members to constitute a quorum. The
mayor, Aldermen Porter, McCandless.
McNeil and Meston remained, the last
named being the only councillor remaining who wiib not on the finance

as a whole would not meet, but little
more than talk was accomplished today, any Steps recommended by the

The company's Inability to raise the
money for the bonds taken up some
time ago was foreihadowed by the
delay in forwarding the sum to the
eily treasurer, A Bmall sum more
than the original sale of slightly under 20 per cent, of the issue has been
raised Since the announcement of thr
isHiie, and has been in the city's hands
for rome time, but the company professes to be quite as handicappeel by
the terrific stringency as anybody
When the mayor proposed that the
council accede to the request of K.
Steele, the representative of the Do-
��� l'linion Securities Company, Limited,
and dlscuM the letter In camera, Alderman     I'uthbert     objected    on     the
ground that the Information contained
In the letter should have been submitted to the council weeks ago, and
��� hnuld not have to be dragged out in
thiB way.
Alderman Fullerton said he should
not stay if Ihe session was private
ie was responsible to the city, not to
the fiscal agent, and he thought the
people hint a right to know the whole
truth Alderman McCandless said
that it was a confidential letter, and
shou'd he treated confidentially. Alderman Cuthbert aald that various
methods of financing were proposed,
nnd that these should be digested by
the Ilnince committee, and a proposal
brought to the councll. If they needed the advice of the other aldermen
they should H8k for it. He moved that
the letter be not received, and that
the finance committee be requested to
Initiate a financial peilicy and submit
It to the eouneil.
Alderman McNeil said thnt Mr, Fullerton was taking a strong attitude,
that the lstter should be onsldered in
private, and that the results could he
given to th" public without anybody
being prejudiced. He also said that
the finance committee was ready to
advise the council of a number of
ihings done In the past few months,
end Se thought when Aldermen Cuthbert knew of tbla he would not be
quite i i critical.
Alderman Porter Bald he did not approve secret sersions, but that it was
neces tan In thiB ease unless the coiin-
c'l turned back the letter. Alderman
Humber snld thai there was no reason
for a secret lOSSlon, as every hank
manager and financial mar. In Victoria
knew the contents of the letter already, lie Said If there was a secret
session he would give the letter lo the
newspapers ten minutes after the
meeting. Mr. Steele, representing the
fiscal agent, immediately arose and
toik Alderman number's copy of thc
letter from him.

As far back ae January, 1911, the
ratepayers voted $30,000 for the purpose of altering the west half of the
market building. The money was nev
er spent, and though the council ol
tha! year treld several times to have
the work commenced and authorized
the expenditure by resolution, (the
mayor vetoed Ihe council's action.
lAst year, as it was Been the amount

work needed to be done a bylaw was

So Says Methodist Pastor���Will  Per-
i      form Ceremony Free But Might
Ask Embarraslng Questions
Oak  Park.  111.,  June 20.- The  Uev.
j Aimer Pennewell, pastor of theEuclId
jav.nue Methodist church, will hereafter accept no marriage fees. Wedding will be as free as air, so far as
he is concerned. And he Ib the pioneer in the movement to abolish wedding fees everywhere.
Uut don't rush  all at once to Oak
IPark io get married, for the Itev, Mr
iPtnnewell will marry no elopers and
no   couples   that   he   knowB   nothing
'about.    Moreover, he is likely to ask
such embarraslng questions as these:
"Hew   is   your  moral   and   phvBical
health ?"
"i-iave you a doctor's certificate
guaranteeing your physical condition
for wedlock?"
And if you can't satisfy the pa-^or
on that score the wedding bells of lm
church  won't  ring  for  you.
The Itev. Pennewell is very much in
earnetst  about  these  matters.
"The purity and dignity of the Institution of mar ;age are threatened
by the present system," he Bays.
"The pastor who accepts a wedding
fee Is grafting. It has always been
distasteful  to me and  I  have decided
ito stop lt. I have jiiBt told my congregation   so.  and  they  seem   to  like
! the idea.
! "Other ministers, though, don't take
to it readily. I haven't been able, so
far. to presuade any of them to join
me ln this reform. Some preachers
even try to drum up trade by m-
C'juraglng engaged people to come to
them for the we-ddiiig ceremony and
by having license clerks, etc., steer
couples  to  thetn.
"If the church proposes to regard
tlie marriage rite aa a religious func-
'tlon   peculariurly   Its    own.   It     must
; make the rite free to all lo presrrve
lha self-respect of the ministry and
dignify the rite Itself.
"It should be as much ths mlnls-
t r's duty   to  preform   marrluge  cere-
i monies as  to  visit  the sick,  conduct
{nyi-r   services,   perform   baptism-;..-*
and  preach at  funeralB.
"No   mlnlB'er  Bhould   accept   a   tee
; for any of these services, ir he does
n't nee-d it he should be ashamed to
take it. and if his salary isn't big
enough  for him  to live on  without
, such graft his congregation Bhould be
ashamed  and  make it adequate.
"Everything savoring of the commercial spirit must be removed from
the  marriage  ceremony  If  we   would
'have it attain the proper dignity ane!
solemnity. And when pahles to a
marriage feel that the minister is pre
'sent   solely   as  tlio  representative  of
| the most high (lod the ceremony will
be more sacred than if the bridegroom Ib thinking of the greenback
in his vest pocket."
The pastor is also a pioneer in his
community In his efforts to secure
the mi nil and physical fitness of
brides and grooms. He declares positively that .while he will marry peo
pie free of charge, be must be satis-
fi:d in every case, that they are free
from disease or taint that should bar
them from wedlock.
He has also written a new marriage
rl ual that he will use hereafter for
his llplcss,   hygienic  weddings.     It   is
n 'in id , B.ralght for ward and dignified
and expresses Divine approval of the
union baaed on such moral and pbysi
cal health.

Victoria. June 20.���That despite the
Uet that the ratepayers have twice
voted money for police headquarters,
once to alter the exlBtlng market
building premises and again "lo add
to the first sum voted to make It suf-
fdent to permit of the erection of a
police station on Fisguard street, that
Ihe final determination or the prob
I .in Is bound up with a civic centre
ii heme, Ib apparent from a coninmnl-
euion which Mayor Morley submitted
to the city council.
The mayor called attention to the
"* fact that as the money for the new-
city Jail voted last January Is not yel
to hand, as the debentures have not

Talk for S-.outs by Ernest Thompson
8-��ton, Chief Sccut for America.
Mr.  Ernest Thjmepon  Seton,  chief!
scout for America, writes to tho Bcouts
on   the   subject  of ."Good  Turns"  aB'
Ho, scouts of the United Kingdom!
I bring a greeting from your brothers
acrosB the sea. -We cannot gather to-1
gether around one council fire; but
we can send our representatives, and !
is Buch I come from America to greet
you and to join with you In council tor
the swapping of notes and the working
out of new id'-as.
We find, as men have always foi :.d,
that a shoutable watchword is a help  '
ful thing; it serves to label us for the!
world and keeps clearly beforo us our
own purpose.
Let me suggest, then, that for this I
coming Eeason, we keep ever iu mind
that ours Ib an outdoor movement, we]
believe in the habit of happiness, we j
aim at a world of brotherhood���there- !
fore be our this year's watchword!
'Blue  sky and  brotherhood."
All good scouting to you and many
rows of red  knees  iu the  firelight.
The  other day  I   was  reviewing  a
troop   of  scouts.     Following    up   my
plan  when  the general  public is not j
���iresent.  I   asked  a  number of questions nbout their daily kind act.
"Did you do your good turn today?"
I asked the flrst scout.
"Ves,  sir,"  he  replied.
"Will you tell me what It was?"
"I'd rather not,' 'was the answer.
"All right," I Bald. "Next scout!
Did  you do  your good  turn?"
"Ves, si.-."
"Will you tell me what it was?    Of!
course, you are not obliged to speak,
but it iB often helpful to other fellows
if   they   learn   how   you   succeed     ln
carrying out  your  promise.."
The scout blushed, and looked on
the ground and said:
"I'd rather not talk about it."
"All right," I said pleasantly, "I
Then, turning to the third scout, I
"Did ynu do your good act today?"
He wa*s a small bov with a bright
and beaming face, and he grinned all
over as he answered:
"Yes, Bir."
"Will you tei Ime what it waB?" I
rejoined, and he continued:
"1 gave up my seat in the BLf-eet car
to' a lady who was standing."
"Good for you," I said. "Did you
ever  do  that  before?"
"No, sir," he replied, with an emphasis which made everyone laugh.
"Exactly," I asked "You never
would have thought of doing such a
thing had lt not been for your promise,  would  you?"
"No," he reckoned not.
"There, you fee; it's working in
your blood already; and it won't take
iong before it bas a permanent hold."
On another occasion I asked this
same leadlne question of a boy, who
answered with some h.stltation:
"Y-e-s, B-i-r. Y-e-s; I think I did.
1 don't know.   1 meant to. anyway."
I  replied:
"Well, if you did something and
meant to be kind, the chances are a
thousand to one you didn't miss your
mark. Now, if you will toll us what
It was we'll judge as to bow far you
"Well,'   he said, "it was this way: I
was coming to this meeting, and as I
walked   elor.g   I   remembered   tbat   I
hadn't done a kind act all day, and I
kept wondering what I could do, hut|
I  couldn't find  a thing.    Everything i
seemed  done  without  me.    Then, all
at once, out In the road, 1 Eaw a broken   bottle   standing   up   with   jaeced j
points, and  1  said  to  myself:     That
there bottle Is liable n hurt someone,
so I gathered up the whole thing and
put It In a rubbish tin. I do not know
If it was kind or not, but 1 meant it
all right."
"Of ccurse it  was  kind," 1  replied,,
with quickness and emphasis, "lt was j
kind to a great many people and crei- j
turoB.    Kvery man with a motor car, j
every man with a bicycle, every man
with  a horse, every  dog.  and  every j
barefooted boy would have cause   to:
bli ss you for what you did.   You have
Struck n  new  and  admirable  line ofj
work.    Ket'P right on.    You certainly
carried out  your  premise today  in a
new and satisfactory manner."
SometimeB the telling of the daily
good turn lu theEe semi-private inter-
views results in some very funny
things. While reviewing some scouts
In Kngland not long ago 1 asked thlB
important question, and got the following Interesting answer:
"Yer, sir, I did my good turn today,
I guess I did a good many good
"Indeed." 1 said; "that Ib interesting. Now, won't you tell US about
"Well," he said, "it was this way:
My mother, she takes in washing, and
the clothes was all through the tuba
and ready for the mangle, and 1 gucBS
I gave It a geiod many good turns."
At this all the other scouts began
to laugh, evidently not accepting their
comrade's anBWer as satisfactory, but
I Bald:
"Hold on, now; it all depends on
two thingB, First: Was It your regular Job to turn the mangle?"
"No.   Fir,"   he   answered.
"Seconu: Then, were you paid for
"No, sir."
To which 1 replied:

Vancouver   Pros.   Coming   Over  with
Changed Line-up���Con Is After
Mann Cup Players.;
With a line-up twisted around as to
he hardly recognizable from that of
previous games, Manager Con Jones
is coming over this afternoon with his
aggregation known aB the Green
Shirts, confident that, even If he does
nut mako a win, he will give the fans
a belter run for their money Ihan iu
the iasl  two games played.
Con is hard up against lt. Tbere
has b*.en dissension among the play-
i rs, which culminated lu the dismissal
of Matheson and Adamson. Perhaps
the move of (Icing these players will
tarn ou( In a better light, for no ag-
gregatlon iu sporting circles can ever
iuipe to win championships if tbere Is
trouble among the players.
In their places the fans will find '���
(he old reliable Harry Godfrey and
Slbby Nlchol. Both make (hnlr flrsl
appearance (his season, the latter on
(he defence, while Nlchol will work
out on the home.
Krnle   Murray,   lhe   speed   artist  at
ci litre, should  be able to    keep    Pat !
IVem y on the    move   and    that    is'
where tbe danger of   today's   game
Ins as regards New  Westminster.
Manager Tommy Gifford will rely
on the same team as that which has
figured iu the lour games played so
far, hoping to get a lead on the challengers so that when Hyland and s'-v-
eral other stars arrive the going wlll
not be su hard.
Yesterday Manager Junes held a
meeting with the officials connected
���.���.Hli the V. A. 0.i the Mann cup-
holders, with the result that before
.mother week has passed the green
tOnrlH will probably be parading two
ui the star players who have figured
on the amateur team during the past
tlir* e years.
Tin sc, together with Hyland. Boss
Ji hnson and perhaps H'ltzgcrald, will
make a formidable team which will
tatte some beating.

If today's American intercolelgiate
regatta at Poughkeepsle runs true to
form. It will be marked by spectacular stunts and a thrilling llnish. While
Cornell has had the habit of winning
for several years, the Khacans usually know they have been In a race. Last
year lhe Cornell varsity crew finished
exactly tour seconds ahead of Wisconsin, ln 1911 Columbia was six
seem,ds behind Cornell, and in 1810
Cornell won over Pennsylvania by the
narrow margin of two seconds. In
1908 whin Syracuse was the victor,
Columbia was only one second behind.
The cimst finish the Poughkeepsle
crowds have ever witnessed was ln
the race between the fnir-oarcd crews
at the 1906 regatta. From the observation trains there did not appear to conneeti.-i
he any possible choice between Syra-
-use and Cornell. Immediately after
the rare the judges declared Cornell
Victorious, whereat the Salt City rooters hooted and howled, crying "Kill
the judges." A few minutes later the
Syracus: ns were praising the umpires
for they had changed their minds
ind declared Syracuse the viol ir

decision has handed down that Syra-

Inch, or a tract; >n thereof.
Columbia's only victory in the varsity race was gained In 1895. ln the
'anions "submarine regatta." The
New Yorkers won by a foot-pump,
which was used to keep the shell from
sinking. The river was unusually
rough and the Pennsy boat sank while

Revelstoke, June 20.���The Dominion land office at Revelstoke, has

during the paat week, when the squatters throughout the district of Mal-

entries for lauds which will put their

inaugurate a period of very active development in the agricultural Industry of the province.

The arrangements made for settling the complicated questions of
timber owners and leases, have borne
the strain of the past few weeks admirably, and the long delayed settlement of the squatters' rights is proceeding with a rapidity and smoothness which speak volumes for the
statesmanship of It. F. Green, representative at Ottawa, who has brougbl
so much thought and knowledge of
local conditions to bear upon these
problems during the past twelve

credit upon the administration of the
affairs of the local Dominion land office.
The squatters are receiving the free

from the wilderness, and this is a
fact upon which the settlers themselves, the Revelstoke district in general, and the Dominion government who
have enacted th'? necessary legislation,
should certainly be warmly congratulated,

Spokane, June 20, Consternation I
was caused among doctors, dentists,
real eBtate men and other office rent- I
ers In the Paulsen, Old National, Kagle
and olher��� blocks near Riverside and
Stevens street when their automobiles were pulled from Riverside avenue by the police greyhound and left
standing on Main avenue.
Orders were Issued by Chief of I'o-
,       .   lice'     McAlplno   and    Commissioner
111    ' | Coates several days ago thai no auto-
mobiles would be allowed to stand on I
Riverside   avenue   between   1   and   7
o'clock   p,   in.  and  officers  were  setil I
mt to notify tha owners of the ma
chines to that effect,   Despite the no-
tice many machines were lefl  stand
ing on tho streel.
Chief oi Police McAlplne took per
Bonal charge of the greyhound, driven
by Officer Arthur Enquest, tit noon
on | yesterday, und with a long rope
hitched io machines lefl Btandlng in
the slreet and moved them to a place
of Hafety on Main avenue during the
parade ol children from the grade
schools. Officer Freso was placed In
the meehiiH's being moved I" steer
The police department was yester
day afternoon deluged with reports of
inlBHlng automobiles, reported hy tlm*
lurs and other professional men In the
Riverside avenue office buildings of
the city. The machines were finally
located where they had been left by
thn police greyhound. ,
Chilliwack, June 20.���The provincial department of agriculture have
got fairly Btarted In the work of assisting the dairymen in improving
their herds.
The latest move in tbis work has
been brought about In the organization of cow testing associations In lhe
dairy   sections  of  the  province.      ���'
For a start, two have been established In the Kraser valley, one In
the Kast Chilliwajjk and Rosedale sections and another in the Sardis-Su-
mas section. The one In the eastern
portion of tlie valley is in charge of
J. II. Watson, of South Stimas, and
A. Wiltshire, of Burqultlam, has the.
charge of the Sardis-Sumas association, and once p. month these men
visit each member or the association
Of which they have charge, (est each
cow owned I ,- him for the percentage
of buttirfat production, keeps a record of the weight of the milk produced of each cow, records these with
ihe amount of food consumed, to produce the milk and cream, and opens
a simple syslem of bookkeeping which
the dairymen can in future follow* and
keep up the work started In dairy
Last week Henry Rive, provincial
dairy  Instructor,  was  in   the  valley
getting the Cow Testing associations
started, He stated that the work was
bound to lead to splendid results. If
the advantages of thla government
work is appreciated, as it should be,
the milk production of the herds of
this province will be largely Increased. It, Mr. line's opinion, It is nol
always the COW that gives the largest
amount of milk which is the mosl
profitable to the dairyman.
Tin- percentage of butterfai from
that cow's milk may be the lowest
In the herd, while she may consume
a great deal more food for the product Ion of that milk, than one of
smaller milk production, but of a high.
er percentage of butterfat.
11 Is hy keeping a record of the
food consumed and the cost or value
of that food, and the value of the
milk and cream production of each
Individual cow, that a true and accurate Idea can bo hed. The system
of establishing cow testing associations throughout the dairy districts
is but following the old Danish syslem established In that country some
years ago.
An association of 25 or 80 dairymen
iH formed. Bach member pays $1 per
cow per annum towards the work of
testing, A man with ten cows pays
$10 while the man with fifty cows
would pay $50, The man In charge of
each asoclatlbn spends a day with
each association spends n duy with
and records every cow In the herd.
The officers in charge of the Rose-
tlale Kast Chilliwack association are
Charles Hawthorne, president; (I. II
Baltic,   Becretary;   A.   II.   Mercer   and
0, Hornby, directors. The Sardls-Su-
mas association Is In charge Of (ieorge
WatBOn and Alex Chadsey. These
men with the milk and cream testers from a commlltee which will Bet
valuations on ihe pasturage, etc. The
work Ih well started, though a month
later Ihan Intended, owing to the lato
arrival of equipment, and before another year severnl more nsoclatlons
will In all probability be formed here.
Ches'.erville, June 20.���The woman
j with  lhe three aliases, Kreeda Helen
, Howard, Dorothy Smith and McKenna
has been committid for trial at Ches-
(erville  by  Magistrate Wholehan, on
la charge of raising a cheque from $10
| to   $1000   and   drawing   that   amount
from the Bank of Ottawa at this place
; on   Monday.    Se  Is  to  be  taken    to
Cornwall,   and   as   the   assizes   there
have just closed she will have to remain in custody (ill next fall ere her
trial  ran  be opened.
The woman was quite alone in the
court and was unrepresented, but uot
for a moment did she attempt to deny
her crime. She merely pleaded guilty
and cxpreBsed her sorrow ai having
committed it. The evidence given
against her was that of the manger
and teller of the Bank of Ottawa here
Her arrest came about as the result
of   her  own   bravado  in   endeavoring
to try the same ruse ln another town.
Trying Same Game
She was trying the same game at
SpencervlUe at the bank there. The
manager of the Ottawa bank here was
communicated with by phone from
SpencervlUe, and on information received, Mr. Craig, accompanied by C.
L. t'nstclman, Immediately proceeded
to Spencerville by aulo, and on arrival there Identified Ih'h woman as the
puny wanted. A warrant wai sworn
out before the police magistniY- at
Spencerville and, ^accompanied b>J
Constable Duiilop, the woman was
brought to Cheslerville in the autu.
Part of the money was discover, d on
her person.
The woman In reality, is Mrs. McKenna, of Renfrew, Chief ef police
Plaiint, of Renfrew, said Mrs. McKenna was a resident of Ri nfrew, but had
only beep here for a short time, coming from Toronto last winter. Mr,
McKenna, who Is employed as an el
ectrioiau In the town power plant, had
no Idea where his Wife was. she hav
lng lefl a few days previous, not stai
lng where she was goiim-.
lie received Ihe $200 sent tn hlm by
his wife, and payed out  $loo for a
bill that he owed. Mr Leach fully
received $200 ul the same time, having no idea where the money came
from, The money was In payment
for groceries that McKenna owed him.
In Ottawa Alto
Ottawa, according to Information
given out by the local police, wns
not overlooked 111 Ihe itinerary of
Kreeda Helen Howard who worked
the clever swindle on the Bank of
Ottawa ilt Chestervllle, According to
the inscription, the police are convinced thai she worked tt clever game
on two dry goods stores In the city
lasl  fall.
Going Into a Btore which she selected because she could be waited on
by a lady clerk, this posibly because
Hbe found male clerks nu re gullablc
she. would order a certain amount of
ladies' wear. Then ahe would order
them to be sent to a ficticious address on some will known street, glv
ing a cheque for $50. The value uf
Hie  goods  would   not   exced  $5.     Net
Buspectlng anything, knowing tie
goods were lo be delivered, anil Impressed by ihe appearance of the wo
man, the cashier waa only lon willing
lo  cash   ihe  cheque,
She wni Iuil t IiIb on two store:*. In
one day and left town Immediately.
Though they wqrked for several week
on the case the police could find ne
trace of her, till they rend the description of the woman who was arrest eil in Chestervllle last night. This
(llscrlptlon when Bent to the chief of
police, tallied exactly wllh that of Ihe
lady who operated here on n smaller
scale last fall. It Ib suspected that
she has worked various ganies of this
kind in several other placfcs.
Toronto, June 20.��� The lack of candidates for the ministry Is causing u
groat deal of misgiving amongst the
leaders of the various religious bodloB
whicb huve been meeting In Toronto
at the PreBbyterlati Assembly. Many
references were made to this matter
and speakers told of the efforts which
had been made to get men to fill the
vacant places. Kngland had been
scoured In the endeavor to obtain men
and they had been forced to accept
even-half-trained candidates, so difficult has It been to find anyone to
undertake the work.
At the Anglican synod the same
problem was frequently discussed.
There are some thirteen vacancies in
the diocese of Toronto alone and Bishop Sweeney said that he waB planning to bring men from England to
(111 these places.
The Methodists are having n similar difficulty. Although the Toronto
conference will ordain thirteen candidates to the ministry, they
Btlll need sixteen more men to fill
the stations in ihelr own conference.
Members of the stationing committee
state that lhe same difficulty
was being found in practically every
conference In Sanada. They were endeavoring to get men in Kngland, but
even then they were not able to get
a sufficient supply.
It   haa  been   pointed   out   that   the
shortage  of men  has been  cnused  by
the  tremendous    expansion    of    Hie
church work In the west.    The great
I number of men have been sent there
j to  fill new  poets,  and  there has not
I been   an   increase   in   the  numlier  of
candidates at all proportionate to the
I increased demand.    This development
(has been so rapid In the west lhat the
I church in the east has not been able
to keep up with the demand for men,
and  consequently  the  shortage    has
heen  magnified.
Other officers In the various church
bodies claim that  the number of Canadians who are entering the ministry has decreased to a considerable ex-
| tent.    A variety of reasons have been
j given for this lack   if Interest, hnt al-
Imost every one thought the main r-ea
I son  was  the   prevailing  materialistic
tendencies.'    In almost every    Bpeech
made  on  this  subject    recently    the
speakers   have   deplored   the   luck   of
family worship and the neglect of the
parents  to place the  ministry  before
Ihelr hoys, and have claimed tbat thlB
bas caused the shortage.
On the other hand, aB Bishop
Reeve suggested to the Anglican synod, one great reason may be the
hard life, with the difficulties that follow Ihe inadequate stipends. It would
appear Uiaf, ln these times of rising
nriceB the churches will have to make
decided Increasi s in stipendB before
they will be able to attract more Canadians Into the ministry.

Regina Council in Dilemma Over Refusal   of  Contractors���Day
Labor Suggested.
Regina, June 20.- The works commute" will ask the city council, to
cancel all former contracts for this
year's pavements und call tor new
This Is the outcome of the general
mixup over giving weight to things
other than the price quoted In awarding contracts.
The Westrumlte people, who were
accept it, partly because it was not
awarded half the contract, refused t)
worth while and partly because of the
opposition of a pari of the council.
Tho works committee offi red the
work to the Granitoid people, the coni-
misismiers' first recommendation, and
their wire read to the committee stated that because of the extreme antl
pathy of certain aldermen Ihey would
not consider il at all
A later wire received after the
company had been definitely assured
thai the committee was readv to give
them the contract, stated that they
would nol care to accept under the
present cirenmslaiucH.
This left   the dty  practically  without  n   company   available   to   do   th"
work,   with   the   exception   of   Hi la  fi
ICeenleyslde. who had been given half.
By   Day   Labor.
Aid. Rink made a strong plefL for
the cltv ( i lav Us own sidewalks by
day labor under competent supervision, The immediate reason for this
policy waa that, be had been credibly
informed that one sidewalk contract
had been twice sub-let.    If there was
sufficient profit for each company to
get a slice he thought lt high time
the city did ItB own wirk.
Commissioner Thornton Raid that '*
was comparatively simple work and
that lhere was nothing to hinder the
city laying Sidewalks cheaper than
the company could, ns the city bad
] its own gravel pit.
Aid. Patton brought the discussion
back to tenders by declaring thai he
did not think lhat tho (iranltold people had withdrawn their lender because of any antipathy, bul becnuse
they had cut their price until they
could nol do the work at a profit,
Mr. Thornton explained that whal
aiii% iiink wis convptalnlng of was
not actually n matter of re-lettlng a
contract. The contract had been once
sublet, but lhis company lln'need the
; work while the one nelualy lining It
did II for wages. Personally Mr.
Thornton said that he would rather
undertake to do any other kind of pub-
lice work, ns everyone knew how to
lay sidewalks and were therefore In
a piisiii ui to advise. If the department, was not quite so busy he would
like to try a part of the program, aad,
In fact, would ask the council for permission  lo lay a few  blocks.

the Quebec license bylaw affecting
their chaiiifeurB, which Is to- be enforced across the river next week.
"It might be possible for ws hu insist that the Quebec chauffeurs pass
our examinations, but aa our fee is
only one dollar we would not have
very much satisfaction, Beelng they
charge our chauffeurs $"> for a license,
and make ihem pass a very stiff examination," said one of the officials
of the Ottawa Valley Motor association.
The matter in the meantime will
be left In obeyance iu the hope ihat
the Quebec provincial authorities will
intervene to prevent the passing of
lhe proposed law. In thc meantime,
the motor association has written Toronto, and Mayor Kllis has been requested to write the attorney-general
of Ontario In the matter.
It is stated that the enforcement of
this collection against Ontario chauffeurs is the work of minor officials
who get a percentage on all money I
collected, and that the cabinet authorities at Quebec will tell them not
