Was informed that the government
fully rralizod the difficulties that had
to be faced. There was no room

On British Plane.
There was a bill at present before

nf Great Britain, lt was announced
during the discussion on the land registry question.
Mr. Thomas Gifford; who was present at the conference, strongly urged
the need of Improving the position ot
the Crown servants in this province
and asked that the work ot making
up on the arrears ln the land registry applications be pushed to the
front as much as possible.
Some 19,000 applications, It was disclosed, were awaiting attention in
New Westminster and 30,000 ln Vancouver. The staff of the office here
was working overtime and, trom the
information ln the bands of the gov
ernment, while applications were
steadily increasing a larger number
were being dealt with daily than the
number received.
With reference to tho courthouse
the deputation asked for an entirely
new building, but this was ruled out
of question by the ministers as no
appropriation had been made for tt.
Tbe New Westminster men wanted
more than one courtroom bo that during the assizes it would not be necessary to bold the county court over

President of Ontario Fruit
Growers Tells Committee
of Handicaps.
Ottawa, Feb. e.-The agricultural
committee of the bouse of common*,
bad a considerable amount of light
thrown on the apple trade in genera*
when it called Dan Johnson, prealdent
of the Ontario Fruit Growera' Association, before it as a witness thia
morning. Dr. Johnson was clear in
his statements and outspoken in hia
condemnation of certain cond.tiona.
which he declared as militating,
equally against producer and consumer. The lamentable considerations whicb prevailed last year with*
one-quarter of the apples rotting in,
western Ontario, while western con-
.-;mcrs paid exorbitant prices ln an
���U-supplied market, Mr. Johnson analyzed as due to the following conditions:
First���The great lack of cooperative methods among the growera except ln a few counties.
Second���Discrimination of western-
railroads In favor ot American .fruit.
Third���Lack of a proper system ot
marketing fruit
Fourth���High freight and express-
rates from Ontario to the west with a
slow service and no stop-over provision i.
Fifth���The use of barrels instead1
of boxes for packing apple3.
The cemmittee was plainly Impressed with the testimony of Mr.
Johnson, particularly with respect to
freight rates west and it was decided*
to call traffic officers of the railway
commission to explain the discriminations that are charged against Ontario fruit.
Mr. Johnson told the committee that
he believed fully 25 per cent, of the
apples of western Ontario wouldt
waste this year, while consumer*
would pay a high price. This, ho
*a;d, was due to peculiar circumstances. The farmers, he said, got
from 50 cents to $1 a barrel, eoni-��
more, some less. He instanced the-
case of a woman In his own county
who was offered $125 for her whole.

Supply Not Any Too Large, However
-Little  Chance  ot  Coal   Strike
Ending for a Few Weeks.
Although the coal situation in this
city oould be better there appears to
be little truth in the rumors that have
been spread around to the effect that
the coal dealers in the city have beeu
bard pressed to obtain supplies of the
ln conversation with several of the
coal men yesterday The Newa waa
informed that while delivery was hampered somewhat on account of tbe
inclement weather no long delay tn
obtaining the fuel for both domestic
a..d other uses had yet been reported.
The strike on Vancouver Island has
hampered mattera considerably owing
to the fact that lhe Canadian Collieries (Dunsmulr) produce almost exclusively coal for domestic use, very
l.ttle ot which haa been mined since
tbe strike began.
Ullley Bros, yesterday received a
scow load, containing 800 tons, from
the Comes mines, aueh shipments
having been obtained every week dm
lug the past tew months.
Messrs. Belyes Bros, expect a aeow
loaded with house (Wellington) coal
from Bar Harbor some time today,
while Mr. Joseph Mayera ia re-nrtad
to have hardly felt the shortage in
the supply.
Thaw Intsrforee.
Mr. Belyea In conversation with The
News last evening stated that the re
cent thaw had interfered with the
delivery of houae coal throughout the
city, for whereas wheeling was poo-
tlble In the business district. In the
upper parte ot the city sleighing was
prevalent, which made lt a difficult
matter tor the teams to get past the
business section with the sleighs aad

Back and forth, from one editorial page to another,
there flows the battle of words anent Canadian national
���defence, but, just as it is imperative for a nation to be
prepared before it sets forth to war, so would it be well
if the champions of the pen���or, it may be, of ths type-
���writer���were fairly well informed upon the subject of
���which-they are treating.
Back in August last we called attention to a ridiculous comparison made by the Toronto Globe when it criticized the Minister of Militia for having "great faith i*e
military training, forgetting that the people of the Transvaal, a nation numerically less than the city of Montreal
were untrained." We were not surprised that The Globe
did not heed our invitation that the story of the Dutch in
South Africa with its long record of war, of ever ready
preparation for war, of the commando system of national
defence, was worthy of its attention.
And yet we are not sure that it has not become so'
��bsSessed with military conditions peculiar to South Africa
that it can think of nothing else. Today it sees that all
is not well as far as our defence system is concerned and
advocates the training of every Canadian in the art of
rifle shooting.
It says that "the need of every-crisis is not men who
���can obey, but men who can command; The soldier learns
to obey, but the officer does not always learn to command. A railway foreman can command hundreds of men,
any one of whom can insult him without the least fear of
s- court-martial sentence. That illustrates the kind of
command and obedience that developed in the Boer army.
Its efficiency needs no argument. The problem of defence will not be solved until we solve the problem of allow- ''uar'pr8 of a niilli<*�� pounds?
ing the soldier to remain a useful and dignified citizen, "'"' ""' v" "" M,,M ��f
not a man taught unquestioning obedience."
We always understood that the first and most important duty of every soldier, be he militiaman, volunteer or
regular, is obedience. We leave our readers to imagine a
Canadian army with men in the ranks insulting their officers, drawing their time checks and quitting like a bunch j
*f graders. The Globe may say that was the state of af- ,
fairs in the Boer army, but it is very far from the truth.! ide^^af^e cTea?LaferfiBrcou"dy

Tory lawyers have argued that Sir

Sir Frederick Banbury has been moved to cry out for all manner of pains

members of the commission. Mr.
Johnson said thousands of barrels ot
Ontario apples went to waste because
there were no Btop-over privileges.
"We, of Ontario, aie losing th**
trade of Alberta and Saskatchewan
through railway discrimination," said
Mr. Johnson. The point wltn regard
to rates which he mentioned led to
a long discussion, the general opinion
being that the railway commission
should take action.
Express rates, said Mr. Johnson,
were killing the trade in peaches,
plums and tender fruits. The express
rate on fruit from Sarnia to Winnipeg
was $2.90 a hundred, while from For

The express rate on  fruit  from  Koi

Bombita  Is   Back Again Among Hit

ignoring as it were, the solution pro-
posed by the leaders of the. Government has added to the piquancy of
the situation.
The object of all this wrangling
does not often figure in the public
eye. He is a member of the wealthy
Jewish clan ol which Lord Sw'aythling
is the head, and which is well represented in the Government and In tha
House. Sir Stuart Samuel was born
at Liverpool fifty-six years ago, and
was educated at Liverpool Institute
and University College, London. He
has represented Whiteehapel in the
Liberal interests since 1900, but has

the toreador with a little pigtail, happier in the cafe than in the drawing

a London tailor, and when I met him
the other night at an evening party I
took him to be a diplomatist or a
Spanish grandee.
In the arena Bombita was radiant
in rose-color silk and gold lace, and
he wore white silk stockin-rs and
dainty shoes���a charming costume
for a masquerade, but inappropriate
for the work of slaying ferocious bulls.
But Bombita was superb. He played
wii death, like a child -with a toy.
Hc knelt far a momant in tHw sand
as his second bull, snorting with
fury, rushed upon him. The creature's horns seemed within an inch of
lies body when ha rose, stepped aside

plunged his short sword into the animal's neck.
The dexterity, the amazing daring
of the man fiil-rd ttie critical audience

whether Rombita would take home

No man could inculcate with bjtter

; physical  fitness  which  is of the essence of the  system  ol national  service which he has strivn to recommend."  says  the  London  Times    ol
Lord Roberts, who ha; just completed
his eightieth y.ir.   "Experts may differ as to the military vain;* of some
features in 'Hat scheme, but its moral
va!ue, and its influence upon physiqu**
nre sufficient alone to make its adoption urgent in one or other form.
"The greatest moral which young
F,nglishm��n may draw from the example of Lord Poberts' caTeer is precisely that which a system ol national
military training is most designed to
fulfil ��� the duty of 'keening fit' for
national "ends. With all his g-nius and
capacity for work, the secret ol Lord'
Roberts' sixty years ol public service
has been, we think, the ffonstancy
with which he has kent his faculties
trained to meet the most sudden call
of duty."

A remarkable atory was related at
the Highgate, London, police court by
a young man who applied for a summons against another man. He told
the-magistrate-that some months ago
hc summoned the man for threatening him.
Since that time the man, who then
was cautioned, haa persistently followed t'.ie complainant and his wife about
wherever they wnt, although thr-y live
at Finchlry. and he at Grouch End.
He never said anything to them, but
simply followed, and when they went
indoors he walked ur- and down outside, watching the housse.
"It's not that I mind much," added
the applicant, "but it's not very nice,
for my wife."
The magistrate professed himsejf
quite unable to offer relief.
"The man is quit; entitled to the

"It all comes down to this," said
Mr. Johnson, "that one-quarter of thr
western Ontario apples went lo waste
while the western consumers were
willing to pay high prices. The western Ontario growers were not organised and no dealers came to them.
Meanwhile we are facing tremen

great needs In the fruit industry. With '
S better system ot distribution, he be
lieved that five ttmen as much fruit
could bo marketed in the -west. He
suggested that the committee continue
its work- by calling practical fruit
growers from Nova Scotia aud British
Columbia. This will be done at once
and officers of the railway commission
will also be called to explain freight
rates in the west. The minister emphasized the value of an education of
Inspection. The farmers should be
shown the proper wuy to pack fruit as
well as punished when tbey packed
fruit dishonestly or improperly. He
thought that organization all through
was the only way of dealing with all
the different problems that faced the
fruit growers. There was also a need
of a system of diverting cars of fruit,
as Ib done In the California fruit trade.
In regard to the exorbitant rates of
freight and express, the minister expressed surprise there should have
been the delays ln hearings from the
railway commission and ln the commission acting, that were complained
of by Mr. Johnson and the members
of the committee. He strongly commended thc arguments that had been
made by Mr. Johnson and believed
tbat continuation of the investigation

most decidedly beneficial.

Aa to the dates of the different

they all objected to that Then they
divided them Into six or eight districts
and each circuit was to form a committee. These committees were to
discuss the question of dates amongst

Their own date happened to bo ealis-

Frisco Boy Outpoints Vancouver Mitt
Artist at Coqultlam A.C. Last
Although many ot the fight fans
present believe that the battle ought
to have been declared a draw at tht
least. Referee W. Haddock awarded
the decision at the tight at Coqultlam
last evening between Charlie Relll>
and Ernie Barrleau, to the Callfornian.
This waa the first meeting of the two
lightweights and tt attracted about
600 fans from Vancouver, Coqultlam
and New Westminster.
Rellly forced natters from the Mart
hnd made a good impression la the
seoond round when. Barrleau was
saved from the K.O. route by the gong.
The Vancouver supporters before
the fight held out tor Jimmy Hewitt
ot Vancouver to be the referee but to
this Rellly, would not listen so Haddock held on to his Job.
Owing to,the.bad feeling that existed fololwlng the decision against
the former V.A.C. boy It ls probablr
that tho contestants will bo matched
again at some near future date.

of the Hastings A.C., Vancouver, secured a decision over Monty LaBelle of

Prof. Alfred M. Tozzer, of Harvard

Dublin, Feb. 6.���Belfast appears to
be threatened with even a greater
castastrophe than home rule. Its
population Is growing at Buch an
alarming rate that the working
classes are actually faced with a
famine in the way of housing accommodation.
For years the municipal authorities
have been endeavoring to keep pace
with the demands of 'their sanitary
officers ln their efforts to create
heathy surroundings, with the result
that large areas of the vilest slum
property have been demolished, but
no provision made to house those who
had been dispossessed.
With an increasing population of
about 4000 per annum, Belfast Is now

AiUen, S.C., Feb. 6.���Frederick O
Reach of New York took tlie stand today und swore that he did not commit an assault upon his wife. Mrs.
Ileach also testified that her husband
did not assault her. Tomorrow the
jury of Aiken county farmers before
which Beach is being tried on u charge
of assault, is expected to decide
whether or not he did.
All the evidence in the case was
In when court adjourned this evening. Alter the defence rested today
the state offered several wltneses ln
rebuttal to contradict portions of the
testimony of Mrs. Beach nnd in this
proceeding the Identity of the man
behind the book case was revealed. He
was Madden Johnson, a young newspaper man of Aiken who is alleged
to have overheard a conversation In
the mayor's office between Beach and
his wife about the assault. Johnson
was not permitted to give att explanation to the prosecutor's question as
to whether Ileach had not asked his
wife to lay tho offence upon the brother of a negro servant and he declined
to answer at all.
Beach told of giving hiB knife to
Detective Vaughan who had been cm-
ployed by the city, ln the presence of
Mayor Syles. He declared that the
knife had two blades and that neither
was  broken.
Was too Frightened.
Mrs. Ileach said she was assaulted
by it gingerbread colored negro who
approached her on tho pretence of
having a message to a negro servant.
She declared tho negro slashed her
throat and hit her on the side of the
head with a stick; that she wan too
tnudl frightened to scream at the
first attack and that when she did

her assistance  as  the  assailant  fled.
At no tune, Mrs. Beach said, had
she entertained any idea that the
negro's  motive   was   rohhery.
Beach did not remember any con
venation With his wife In the office
of the mayor, neither did Mrs. Beach.
Roth Indignantly denied tho suggestion that there was any Idea of fastening the crime on any known person
Although her voice trembled, Mrs.
Beach delivered her nnrurtivc calmly,
deliberately and with an amazing
memory for details of all that happened except during those few moments when Klie was struggling with
her assailant   ���
Geneva, Feb. 6.���A remarkable case
of what may be called suicidal telepathy has occurred near Geneva. Mme.
Simon, a Swiss widow, aged 50, had
been greatly distressed on account of
the removal of her Bister, who is five
years younger, to a hospital.
On Monday afternoon a number of
persons who had ascended the Saleve,
429 feet high, by the funicular railway, were horrified to see a woman
walk out on to a ledge overlooking a
Bheer precipice of 300 feet, and, after
carefully wrapping a bhawl round her
bead and face, lump into space. The.
woman was Mine. Simon, and aho was
found on the cliffs below in a man-
I Bled. .condition.
At the -same time, Mme. Simon's-
sister���whb had net seen or communicated with the former for a week -became hysterical, saying that her sister, was dead, and that she did not
want to survive her.
During the temporary absence of
the nurse the woman got out of bed,
opened the window, and Jumped Into
the road from the flret floor. She Is
seriously injured, and her recovery la
doubtful. The news of the death of
Mme. Simon was only known at the
hospital nine hours later.
Would-Be Suicide Swims Ashore and
Returns to sorrowing Wife and
New York, Feb. 6.���Mourned as a
suicide, John McGowan, who leaped,
from an East River ferryboat on Wednesday evening, turned up at his tenement home late last night, while his
young wife with ber baby was searching the river front for his body. A
vision of hiB little family left to Btarve
or accept charity had turned Mc-Go-
wan'a Intended self-destruction to
eagerness to live.
A photograph of McQowan'B wife
and baby was found ou the ferry boat
after he had leaped overboard ln the
dark, leading to the identification. Reporters were waiting at his home last
night to learn further of tbe suicide
when, during Mrs. McGowan's absence in search of the body, McGowan,
a tall, muscular chap, walked In.
"I simple could not stand being
without work any longer." he said. "1
went on tbe ferry boat and waited until it was ln the middle ot the river.
Then I took off my coat and hat and
dived into the water.
"I must have been pretty close to
the bottom of the river when I realized what a coward I was. 1 was almost all in when I got back, and took
deep breaths until my strength came
back, and struck out for shore.
Men at an electric light station put
me Into their boiler room and gave
me hot drinks, and when 1 left them
yesterday they fitted me out ln a
coat and hat."

While Patrolling After Gun  Runners
���Lieutenant and Nine Blue-
Jackets  Missing.
L-ondon, Feb. 6.���Lieut. Humphrey
W. Smith and nine bluejackets of tbe
British cruiser Perseus are believed to
have been lost while watching for
pirates on the Oman coast of the Persian Gulf.
They had been detached in ono of
the cruiser's cutters, and no trace of
them has been found, lt ls believed
the cutter foundered ln a gale.
The present ls the most active season of the gun runners of the Persian Gulf, and all the winter naval
cutters are out patrolling the coast to
effect their capture.
The work is by no means easy, aa
the Persian Coast ls exceedingly shallow and cut up Into long creeks, into
which no man-of-war can enter. The
trade in gun running by the Afghans
is extensive, and Is a source of serious trouble to the Indian Government,
as the arming of the frontier tribes
with modern arms must Inevitably
lead to a campaign of practical extermination at enormous cost of money
and life.
The tribesmen are partially under
British protection, but are under no
form of control, and make frequent
raids Into British territory.

A tremendous sensation has been
caused In athletic circles by the admission of James Thorpe, the champion all-round athlete of the world,
that ho received money for playing
buBeball a couple of years ago. It
was Thorpe who so materially aided
the United States In capturing thc
r-hlnf prizes at the Olympic games of
1912, where he competed as an amateur against amateurs.
Now all bis prises won since the
(into of his fall Into professionalism
must be returned. Men who came
second to him lu half a hundred contests wlll be awarded first place, aud
men who came third wlll move up.
Athletic register and records will havo
to be revised.
Since the fall of Lucifer, the Son of
Morning, when has there been such
another descent as this? The amateur world reels under the blow, and
calls upon tho rest of the world to
stagger with it. The rest of the
world, however, knows a little about
amateurism, and may decline to Indulge in nny sympathetic unsteadiness of gait.
The rest of the world will conclude
that. Thorpe committed no heinous
crime In receiving a few dollars be-
Cailfte IiIb skill In baseball was such
that tho general public would pity to
sen him play. Tho rest of the world
will decline to tieo any great difference between n man running a race
and receiving twenty or fifty dollars
for IiIb cfrortn. and a man running n
ruco and receiving n gold watch worth
twenty or fifty dollara.
Yet ono Is a professional and the
other Is an amateur.
In fact, thn rest of the world has
some sense of humor, and Ib Inclined
to regard the distinction between
amateurism and professionalism as
tlio modern counterpart of the distinction between Tweedledum end
Tweedledee. Amateurs, In this
country at least,'ore not as a rule of
finer fibre in any way than professionals, and are distinctly inferior in
average skill.
Every professional was once an
amateur, and his fall from the ranks
ot tbe one Into the ranks of the other
Is not a moral' fall, but merely a
symptom of Increasing expertness and
Increasing business sense. Instead of
giving his strength tor a medal and
permitting a club or an association of
business men to retain tho money
that people are willing to pay to see
him perform, tho professional merely
asks for a Uttle of tbe money himself.
That Is nil the difference, and In an
age when many of the amateurs are
socretly taking money and signing
affidavits aa to their purity from an
athletic point of view the difference
Is even less.
Jim Thorpe may surrender bis
prizes, but If amateurism ia what Its
prophets try to make us believe, the
high-spirited athletes who finished
second to him will decline to take the
prizes that another and a better man
fairly won Toronto Mall and Empire.

Something new for this city in the
membership campaign line has just
been started by the members of the
Young Men's Christian* Association.
The various classes havo organized
themselves into two teams apiece, ths
members of which will engage in
"mortal combat" to Becure new members for the association. The uniqueness of the scheme lies in the system
of counting the new members secured
and In this hockey, basket ball and
baseball games and a clock will figure.
The clock system of counting haa
been adopted by the senior business
men's class, the captains of the two
teams of which are T. H. Barbare and
W. T. Reid. Each $2.50 secured In
membership fees will be counted as
one minute on the clock and the team
that secures the greatest number of
flnutes wins the game.
The junior business men have appointed W. Reid and A. F. Mills as
the captains of the two teams into
which their class has been divided.
The system of recording tbe results
in this case will be a hockey game.
Every $10 received on a membership
will count as one goal.
A baseball game will be the
means of tabulating the results by thc
members of the senior "gym" class,
the captains of the teams ot which
are C. H. Storm and H. Breen. Every
$2 received on a membership will
count as one base and every two days
of the campaign will count as one
Inning. ,
The High school boys will use the
game of basket ball as their system
of recording the results obtained by
their two teams, which are captained
by F. Vert and H. Bend. A field goal
In this case will count as $2 received
on a membership and $1 will be estimated as a field shot.
Although the members of some of
the teams are already at work the
real start of the campaign will take
place on Saturday. Physical Director
Sovereign will be the official starter
of the great race, while A. W.
Decker, boys' secretary, will hold the
watch and train the contestants.
A. G. Pickering, from Chllllwack, a

The fraud was committed by the
purchase of a revolver and cartridges
from the Menzies Hardware Co., Chilliwack and handing over a valueless
cheque for $20.60, tho price of the
articles. The cheque was drawn on
the Royal Bank, where the prisoner
had at one time a savings bank account It was proved that never at
any time had the deposit been more
than $12 and at the present time the
account was described as dormant by
tho bank accountant.
The prisoner asked no questions
but stated he thought there was sufficient money to his credit ln the bank
to meet the account. While In Coqultlam be had sent $40 to a friend in
Chllllwack to deposit ln the bank.
He had last seen the friend two
years ago and had Bent the money
about a year ago.
The court, addressing the prisoner,
said: "You started issuing those
cheques without inquiring whether
the money had been deposited and
waited until after bank hours before
you issued them.
An Improbable Story.
"Do    you    think,"    continued    the
Judge, "that story sounds reasonable.
