Chargec Explained
()n Ttieid-iy morning Mr. Justlc
Morrison charged on thc two Bankers'
Turst Company indictments. His address was nlti gether of nn explanatory nature. In the Instance where
Me--*; Cook, Ileum and O'Connor are
mentioned, he told of the Informal Ion
war | of the corporation with an Initial capital of $800,000. Later it was increased to $2,000,000.
At flrsl business was transacted In
a small way, but in mil a dividend
"i ii,iid ef ten per cent, on preferred
stock, nnd two per ei nt on common
stock. The evidence showed that Blnce
iniii, when cook practically obtained | ext
control, no business hud been done of      Mr
accounts or granting new ones. They
w,re trying to encourage ihriftineas
and economy In all business.
He did not think It could he said

Deposits   Decreased
The chairman- It is the result of a
combination  of    circumstances.    Tho
bankB' circulations  were  pretty  well
up to the limit  and  money was not
coming In. in tho same way.   Tlie deposits with the banks throughout the
Dominion  of Canada  for the year up
to   April.   1913,  showed   a  diminution
jof $14,000,000, rrom that of the year
preceding   April,   1912.     That   did   not
seem  much  In one  way, but if they
| took Into consideration also the enormous number of people coming into
jthe country and the amount of money

All suits of people .a all parts ol thi

Ihem the queen insists on giving lier
personal attention, whenevi r possible.
Tlie queen does not receive as many
l-o'-giug letters as an American multimillionaire, perhaps, but she has more
'linn her share, and quite enough to
bankrupt tlie royal treasury if all the
requests Tor small articles to be lold
at auction for the benefit of church
or charity, and these requests come
not only from all parts of the empire.
but from the United States and continental Kurope.
Many of these letter writers calmly suggest that an article of the
queen's own making would be especially appreclati d.
The Kngiish queen is a devotee of
the needle, but if she plied her needle day and night she could not supply
the demand for specimens of her
handiwork As a resull of tlle queen's
example, a needlework cult has sprung
up In Kngiish society, and threatens
to oust bridge.

the rose has been an emblem, a symbol,    llarpocrates. the God of Silence]

In  Council   Chamber
The    ancients    remembering   this*
Bt*.ry, used  to have a roBe placid  in
their rooms of mirth or entertainment,
���   and sometimes, even in their council chambers, as a hint that what was'
seen  and  heard  there  should  not  be
talked of outside.
In olden times piety employed the
rose in the adornment of holy tern-
I pie Love und gaiety have formed
I roses Into crowns and scattered rose
leaves under tlle feet of those whom
it. was desired to make joyful. In'
some countries, notably I'erela, grief
has covered the graveB of separated
loved ones with roses.
Modesty and purity have ever received the roBe ub their sweetest and
most glorious reward. In many parts
of the world there has been held from
very ancient days a rose festival, wheu
by popular vote some lovely and pure
damsel has been crowned "Oueen of
the Rosebud, Garden of Girls."
Rose  Festivals
Nowhere Ib this rose festival more
prettily  carried  out  than   in  Sllency,
a small village in l'icardy, and it was
the ceremony at this place, which Ka-
I ther   Nugent  -a   well   known   London
I Catholic   priest���   took  aB  his  model
; for the "Rose Festival" which was for
! several years held at the Crystal Palace.
In Plcardy, candidates for the honor of being "Itose Queen" appear belore competent judges and the damsel
who gives the most affecting proofs
of Innocence, truth, simplicity and
general goodness of character receives
a high crowned hat completely covered with roses. Such a hat is trea-
Btircd and handed down for generations.
Frequently it has happened in Plcardy--and  the writer  knows  that it
gn wn. The soli muBt be worked underneath the large roots and tapped
about them. The top of the tree
should be leaned Bllghtly to the southwest.
Thia enables the tree to resist tbe
hard south  winds and before the end
of the  first  season  the tree  will    be
standing in an erect position,   it is
a good plan to shake tin- tree several
limes while tapping the earth around
the riots and to pour waler ahout thc
tree in order to bring th" soil in contact witli every bit of root surface.
After tli" water lias been poured on
another Inch or two of dry soil
good surface should be thrown about
the tree to prevent  baking."

Mr. Lougheed's Paper,
Mr.  I.-TUgheed.  In   his  paper,    said'
Settlers   In   the   brush   nr   uncleared
I land,  in   the  lower  Fraser  valley  are
i not  in   a   great   many   cases   making
. the progress thai  should fall tn their
[efforts.     This   is  In   a   great   measure
I due (o tlie following reasons:   cost of
'.land clearing, bad roads, want of suitable markets nnd luck of cooperation.
i    The cost of clearing th*> land is the
most   important   and  one  that is the
i (Irsi  great trial to a settler.    If he is
jonlv  possessed  of a  few hundreds of
dollars or a Iho,,sand,  nearly all his
j money  is spent,  in  securing  tho  property.    He hns then to build and dispose of the brush on  the ground    in
|order to prepare the surface    for    a
'crop.    He does not get on with    this
i work very rapidly and his remaining
* money  is all gone before he does so.
It  is here he nn-ds belp,    lie cannot
��� continue,  his  clearing   on   account of
Mils  deferred   payments  and  his  pro-
��� petty is not In shape to command Ihe
anpntlon of a loan company: Even
lf his title is clear he dreads a innrt-
; gage, which, in many cases, carries a
i high rate of interest. Under the circumstances   he   must   either  sell   his
! propi rty or leave home and obtain
employment in order that he may
again continue his clearing, If he
sells, his opera,ions are continued by
i some one else. If he goes away to
work It will be several years before
enough land Ib cleared on which ho
can   make a  Using.
With tliise difficulties In view, a
'iv linn Iv,-, been pre entod to this
bitrean, which has -iln-ndy the approval tf s vernl societies and municipal ti.-s. thnt the government of tho
province assist ilia actual settler In
leaniv; the land, such assistance to
be a direct cbargo   on   the   properly
I mil  repaid  wltli a  moderate rate of
interest In a certain number of years.
In  doing  this  the  prov,nc-  is  noi
offering any other bonus than giving
the settler the advantage of tbe low
! rate of interest which the government
��� ,an obtain for hlm.
|    It is also suggested that If suitable
machinery tor clearing land were
placed at the disposal of the Bottlers
in different districts, the cost aim
work of clearing could be reduced a
| hair, in comparison with the present,
I the settler could al once make his
"ind productive and lhe district would
become richer and more 8' It-support
S'rong  Reason.
A Btrong reason for asking asslst-
,-.'"���' Is 'hr all ei nearly all the merchantable timber has been taken off
the settlers' lands, Raving only the
slumps and brush, which can bring
the settler no compensation for his
work in  disposing of It.
Mr. I.ougheed amplified his Btate-
ini-i by siallng that tin re wis more

Mr. Hill-Tout Btrongly confirmed

on Ihe land afier they got lhere.

By Quarter*.
The first quarter was even; the
second showed a shadow in favor of
tli*- hereditary guardians of the Minto
mug; ihe third saw Vancouver several lengths behind and In the fourth
Vancouver wasn't visible at all. The
holiday crowd thut turned out to add
tone to the llrst lacrosse event of tho
year tallied somewhere about the ten
thousand mark and the style cf play
was as clean and free from coarse
work as a transaction at the ribbon
counter In n dry goods store. The
grandstand was full and the bleachers
likewise, while the row of human sardines that lined the fence was four
deep; also tliere were the honk-honk
shays, whose hoarse voices, ranging
all the way from high "C" to low "Z,"
added color and melody to the proceedings.

Wind   Needed.
Snme defunct near-Solomon once
ventured the opinion that "Practice
makes perfect." That may or may
not be the case, but In the lacrosse
game practice certainly makes wind
and wind was something that was
badly needed under those green
chkumles on Saturday. In the final
quarter there didn't seem to be

It'll take good lacrosse to- pry loose

Line-ups Familiar.
As to the line-ups of the teams,
they were strangely familiar. Tommy

voiced his opinions from the region
of iiie club house door. Ills active

Victoria   Boy   Easily   Trims   Barrieau
But Can't Produce a Dream
Whatever 'opes Ernie Barrleau had
ln the region of the Canadian lightweight championship flickered and
died on Saturday evening when Joe
Bayley, the present holder of the title,
defeated the Vancouver boy in the
tenth of a scheduled fifteen round
battle   at   Brighouae.
Barrieau held his own until the
fifth, when he began to loosen up and
attempt to give blew for blow to Hay-
ley. Two minutes of this soon con-
vlnced Ernie that he had made an
error for Bayley just sailed In and,
standing all kinds of punishment,
hammered his opponent's face and
body till he had the former amateur
lightweight champion shaky at tbe I
knees. After the fifth the crowd was
able to pet wise to the faot that Barrieau. touted as he has been by Van-
| couver fistic fnns, was really not in a
i class with Bayley and for the next five
; rounds Bayley just used him ns a
' punching bag.
Weak and hardly able to stand on
''.lis  pins.   Barrleau  staggered  out  for
: the tenth round and was bowled over
n   the  first  mix-up.     lie    took    the
"(imt  of nine before he rose, only to
be sent down ngain for another nine.
That ended it.    Biddy Bishop, the Ta-
-oma  referee,  realized   that   the  fight
was ended ami raised  Bayley'e arm.
indicating  that  the Victoria  boy  still
retained the championship of the Dominion.
This was the second occasion on
which Bayley has had the chance to
| deliver a haymaker to a man In the
early stages of a fight and on both occasions he has been unable to do so.
Critics in the prcrs stand Saturday
evening became firmly of the opinion
'hi, MorrlS Condon's protege, good
fighter though he may be, will mnre
than meet his match in the near future In one who has little science, but
a vicious  punch.
A crowd of nbnnt 3000 were present
\nd appeared well pleased, not only
with the Ideal arena built at Brig-
house, but with the excellent curd prepared hy the promoters.
The preliminary, between Frank
Rerrleau, brother of Ernie, and Hed
Roblpson, of Victoria, came nigh ap-
���lroachlng the main event In excellence, fhe middleweights mixing It for
eight fast rounds. Barrieau pettini: the

New   York.  May  25.���Heavy
slugging by the Erasmus batters lost the game for Erasmus yesterday at Hawthorne
field. Erasmus tallied two
doubles, five triples and a
home run. ln each case the
balls cleared the fence and
were lost. In the last half of
thc eighth Inning Brush lost
the last ball with a foul flyover the fence. Umpire Wilson
gave Erasmus five minutes to
secure another ball. The Erasmus captain was unable to do
this, so the umpire awarded
the game to Stuyvosatit. although the score then stood '.���>
to 5 in favor of Erasmus.

Toronto. May 26.- Wilhelm Richard
Wagner, the Immortal operatic composer and reformer of the musical
drama, was born Iii l.cipsic, one hundred years ago and the ccntennary
was observed throughout Kurope and
America. Wagner festivals, commemorating the genious of the musical
rebel, has lu en held, or will take
place within the next few days, In
many cities on tills side of the Atlantic, as well aa in Oermany and Eiir-
The man who was forced to tight
long and valiantly for his revolutionary operatic principles, and who wub
ioften reviled and denounced hy critics
[an.d public everywhere was balled as
'the greatest composer of his time-
perhaps uf all time.
Leipsic, where he was born; Dresden, where he won his first operatic
success, anil from which city he later
'(led, an exile, because of his participation in the political agitations of
1849; Konlgsberg, where he was for
a time a conductor, and where he married Frauleln Willu-lmlna Planer, an
actress; Riga, where he was also engaged as a conductor; Zurich, where
he spent his exile, und produced most
of his literary works, as well at outlining his famous tetralogy, "Der ring
des Nlbelungen," and other operas;
London, where he conducted concerts
with great success in 185!*,; Venice,
where he completed "Tristan und
Isolde:" I'aris. where he went in 1SG9
and negotiated the production ol
"Taniihau.-er" ut the (irand Opera a
miserable failure, due to a clique that
deti rmlned to suppress both the piece
and its composer; Vienna, where Wanner heard his "Lohengrin" for the
first time; Munich, where he lived for
a time after 1862, when he received a
pardon for his political offenses, anil
was permitted to return to Oermany;
Balreutb, where lie completed "Der
Ring," and where he died thirty years
ago all of these cities and others connected with the life of tho greal musical genius held Impressive centenary
celebrations lust Thursday.
Wagnerian Mecca.
Perhaps tin- most noteworthy of the
day's observances was at Balreuth,
long a Mecca for Wagner lovers, and
the scene of the memorable productions of "Parsifal." From 1N6H to his
death in 1SS3 Wagner resided pennant ntly In Balreuth, in a house named
Wahnfried, in the garden of which be
himself built the tomb in which bis remains now rest.
The copyright of "Parsifal" Will expire at the end of this year, a petition
asking for its extension having been
refused by the imperial parliament,
ner have confined the production of
I'nder the copyright the heirs of Wag-
i "Parsifal" to Balreuth���a monopoly
Immensely profitable both to the heirs
to the people of the little city.
Frau Cositna Wagner, widow of the
composer, has led in the movement to
confine "Parsifal" to Balreuth, and declares that in ho dolnR she Is carrying
out the wishes of her husband, who expressed a desire that the opera should
,nev,r I.e produced outside his own
theatre. In America "Parsifal' 'has
already been porduced many times,
j und productions are now being arranged for in several European cities
Wagner was a man of many love affairs. Ills flrst marriage, entered
upon at the age of twenty-three with
Wllhelmlna Planer, was a failure Cos-
Ima, his last wife, who Is Btiil living,
and who receives a royalty of $25,000
a year from her husband's works, was
the wife of Hans von Iluelow, the
pianists, when she lirst met the composer.
It was a cafe of love at first sight
and Von Huelow accommodatingly ���.'.nt
a divorce that they might wed. "The
gjori Hans," hr he Ib called by Wag-
nerlans, in praise for his "sacrifice,"
was not so pliant as he seemed and
privately entertained a fierce animosity toward the genius who had stolen
his wife.
"If he were not n genius, nnd onlv
some one I could kill. Wacner would
havo been dead before this," Von Ruo-
low once remarked to a friend.
Calgary, May 26, Four hundred and
thirty-two   new   citizens     have     been
added to tiie population of Calgary
during tiie past year as a result of the
���work of the Imperial Re-Union Association which has been operating in
this city  for the  past  twelve  months,
The alms and objsata of this organ*
Izatlon are too well known to be repented at length,  but  the association
, was formed for the purpose of enabling desirable residents of Calgary
who have recently emigrated to the
Dominion to become reunited with
their   fumllleB   curler  than   they   had
, hoped to, through tho advancing of
funds to pay their passages, the money
thus advanced being rapaid In Instal-
i ments
The committee in charge of the
operations of the association were
able to report the guarantors that not
one single family to whom money had
been advanced to enubel them to Join
relatives in Calgary had defaulted In
their payments.
In  addition  to this Calgary  estab-
: lished a record unbeaten by any city
In Canada during the tlrst year's existence of such an organization. This
is all the more remarkable when It Is
considered that the cost of transporting a family from the liritish Isles to
, Calgary is almost double that incurred
In bringing them to a point In eastern
Canada where no long rail journey
lies between the port of debarkment
and destination.
The committee of business men in
charge of the work Inld twenty-seven
meetings throughout! he year and the
applications of 130 residents to bring
their families out from the old land
were considered and accepted. Twenty-eight of theso have already repaid
tlieir advances in full and all of the
others are making payments regu-
