Tho reason of this activity is due
to the fact that the United States authorities have withdrawn all objections they had to the work which were

A gentleman by the name of A. G. Gardner, writing

enough to take Henri Bourassa's word for it that the farther west you travel in Canada the fainter becomes the

As a direct contradiction of the voluble Henri's assertion, The News confidently refers Mr. Gardiner to the
city of Victoria, the capital of British Columbia and the
farthest west outpost of the British Empire. If he can
find any spot covered by the Union Jack more English
than Victoria, this journal would like to have the opportunity of looking it over. M

There can be no question that sie
murdered Calmette, but in every land,
civilized and uncivilized, it is recognized that in certain circumstances
murder may be something else. It
may be execution, when there is stif-
fiicent justification for it. The man
who slays the nian who ruins his
daughter Is merely a technical murderer. We do not, as a rule, bang
him. Mine, Caillaux had as her chief
counsel Maitre Labori, who ls the

name i.s world-famous, lt was his endeavor to prove that Mme. Caillaux
slew Calmette because he was trying
her mother, a contingent of youthful barristers behaved outrageously,
making it impossible for the jury to
hear the voice of the public prosecutor, jeering whenever he made a
point against the prisoner. A
French trial, according to a recent observer, resolves itself Into a triangular duel among tlie judge, the prosecutor and the lawyer for the defense.
Sometimes all three speak at once.
Tiie judge frequently interrogates the
witnesses. The public in the background applauds, hisses, laughs and
otherwise takes a band in the proceedings. Emotion decides the Issue.
If the murderess looks repentant, and
weeps becomingly, she will frequently
be acquitted without the Jury leaving

letter is an announcement recently
made by the central emigration board
as to the  formation of a company to
'buy land In Australia for settlement
for 'iiritish emigrants, Without questioning the good intentions <>f the

Alter pointing out t'.iat the main
object of the agricultural classes who
emigrate is to obtain the ownership
of land, Mr. Collings proceeds to deduce from this a remedy for the excessive emigration. This remedy he declares to be ior the English

who leave on the vast ureas of uncultivated and waste lands in this country, there lo be employed in raising

abroad. Mi*. Collings recognizes that
the operation of such a scheme would
of necessity be slow, but he insists
that S8 Cast as it wus carried out, so

no tion he changed.
In proof of tills contention Mr. Collings points to the successful working
of the land purchase act of 19011 in
Ireland, which has resulted In a
steady dcrense In emigration. In the
Icng run, he insists, such a scheme
would settle the question of rural depopulation. At present, the letter continues, for every 100 acres of grass,
one man, or at most two men, are
enough, but the same area under the
plow would require seven or eight persons, besides horses und machinery.

The elusive Fraser river sockeyes
failed to make much of an appearance
among the fishermen yesterday and
as a result, with the exception of the
up-river boats and on one or two
drifts on the main river, few good
catches were reported.
The best results of the day were
obtained by the up river boats which
averaged 85 per boat. This is considered fair for the up river days during a slack run. On the lower main
river and Canoe Pass, the general
average was 20 fish per boat but this
figure will probably take a slump today on account of poor returns from
the gulf and English Bay boats. Those
on the North Arm only averaged from
6 to ID fish per boat.

ruling goes  into immediate effect.
following negotiations between the
provincial and Dominion governments, the department of the Interior at Ottawa has agreed to assist
public hospitals by making an allowance of fifty cents per diem for indigent Immigrant patients who have
been in the Dominion for iess than
twelve mouths, ln no Instance will
payment be allowed for Asiatics.

Wage Question Discussed.
Contrary to expectations the communication from the trades and labor
council protesting against alleged low
wages paid to the white help at the
hospital as compared with lhe Chinese recently employed there, was not
acted upon. Data connected with the
case will be prepared by the secretary and the matter will be taken up
at a special meeting to be called in
the  neai   future.
While not committing himself in
any way, J. J. Johnston stated that
the communication was an important
one and that under no circumstances
could lhe board pay white labor on a
! lower scale  than to Chinese.

ward  as  the  patient.
A difference of opinion  was voiced

would mean the hiririK of two special

and would mean thai patients would

Manager Turnbull Laughs at Victoria
That Royal* are Afraid of Capital Team's Rough Play
The Victoria Times, which frequently takes a plunge Into Iiritish Columbia lacrosse affairs and almost Invariably nets off on the wrong foot,
comes out this week with a yarn lhat
on account of rough work by the
Victoria team, Manager Turnbull, of
the New Westminster team, hud writ-
len to one of the officers of the Vic-
toria club, statin'.: that, he will not
bring his team to Victoria to finish
i.ut  the  schedule.
I'o one who has played the game
ii the east and also on the coast, hav-
ng heen a member of the Toronto
Tecumseha and Con Jones' Vancouver
learn, it would seem quite natural for
ihe Victoria writer to get hooked up
on Ihe correct  route once In a while.
When shown the article In question
last nighl at Queens park, Manager
l urnbull not a little hot under the
collar until he tumbled as to who the
>i;ter was. "No one in Victoria can
produce such a letter and there is not
wi nl oi truth to the yarn," said the
ItoyaJi    skipper.    "On  Victoria    Day

Whether Sperry  went  to the  birds
for   his  idea  is  not  said,  but   his  ap-'
paratus  does  for the aeroplane  what
the tips of the bird's wings and  tails
do for it. These feathers are  so lino
that they are sensitive  to the slight-!

like an engineer who is also the man j

for making the observations that are

I purpose'of  enabling   military   airmen
to    make    photographs   and    sketches I
and other observations without being
always on the alert to maintain lhe
equilibrium of the aeroplane that the]
(sperry*    stabilizer    was    made.      Mr.
Sperry  Is not   the inventor of the gyroscope, which  plays such an  import-
ant part in the invention, but he has:
ingeniously   adapted   ii   to   new   uses.
In   his   invention   it   is   not   the   gyroscope thjjt keeps the machine on an
even   keel.     This   is   attained   by     a
seriis of wires attached to the tips of
the wings and to the rudder.

The Sperry gyroscopes are four    In

are.  as  it  were,  sentinels  of  the  air- j

planes   of   rotation    they   steadfastly

A   capital   story   is   told   of  Lord
Wolseley    hy   Mr.  Nourse,  who.  The
Cottager and Artisan points out. was
with the English forces through tho
Soudan campaign.-   At Korti, Nourse !
���went Into  the  po3tofflee to look  for''
r-ome letters.    Thc postmaster was a
native, and not much  used to hand-
writing.    He made superficial exam-1
ination of a  big pile of letters and
papers, and said  there  was  nothing
for  the applicant.     Nourse asked  to;
Bee the pile of letters, and  while be '���
.was looking  them  over  a  man  with
nothing to designate  his rank  came
into the office.    He took in the situ
ai ion at a glance     "Let's clear this
.hing  out,"   he said.     They  jumped
on   the   counter    and    proceeded   in
"clear it out" by first  bundling out
the postmaster.
Then they began a careful examination  of the poslonVe.  and  found
It congested with malls for the army.
They    searched    every     nook    and
cranny, throwing Ihe lelters for each
regiment   Into  a  different   pile,   and
heaping up all (be newspapers in the
centre of the room.    Then they went
through  each  pile  and   separated   il
into companies,    Before night every
letter was in camp and  distributed.
and  the next   day the   papers   were
���out.    Some time after Nourse found
It necessary to see the commandant,
and sitting near the tent to which he |
liad  been  directed   he  saw his  com- |

��� the   Ii.  ('.   K.   |{    aud  of  the  agreeable
t methods  of  doing   business   with   the
former   general   manager  during    his
I eight  years of experience  on  the City
council.    Mayor Gray referred to tha
1 oxcellent selection made by the com-
i pany   in   appointing   George   Kidd   as
j general   manager,   vice   Mr,  Sperling,
i and stated that the city was eminently satisfied  with  the  present officials

| ters of the company.    The mayor ex
tended greetings and Godspeed to Mr.
| and   Mrs.   Sperling   on   their   trip   to
; Kngland ani! their subsequent sojourn
Mr. Sperling's Address.
Mr.   Sperling's   response,     wa.s     as
'follows: I
"Mr.   Mayor,   Mr.   President  of   thn \
Hoard of Trade,  Mr.  President of the
Progressive   association,   and   gentle-:
' men:
"I thank you for the honor you have:
done me In asking me to be present at
this luncheon, given as a token of
your good-will on the eve ot my departure to Rngland, where I have accept,'! a position on the board of our
| company. I not only appreciate the
I honor from a personal point ot view
bul I lake it as an honor to my company. I am '-ure my chairman and
colleagues will look upon this function as l do, as evidence that what-
������er differences we may have had In
tiie pasi have now been satisfactorily
adjusted. After all, our differences .
were confined to a single question -
the purity of the Coquitlam water
j. upph.   There would be no advantage
in going Into the past history of this
controversy a.s the matter ims now
been adjusted, but I can say frankly
that my company has always been
sincere In Its desire that the purity
of ihe water supply B_ould be fully
protBCteu. Tho position of your water supply Is today veiy much better
than before we commenced our water
power development, and we have the
testimony if eminent engineers and
anal, sifts lhat the New Westminster
water > upply is as good as any doni-
e.-re  water auppl)   In the  world.
A  Liberal  Policy Adopted.
With   regard   to   transportation,   It
is manv years ago now since my com-
pi'ay recqgnl/.ed that In order to ful-
;!! its duty to the territory in which
it was authorized to bti!ld, il would be
necessary to extend its operations into sparsely settled districts. This
my company has doue, and I know
of no company thai has carried out
this pollry more liberally than ours.
I refer particularly to the building of
electric railways. The general rule
amongst companies has been to build
i lectric railways only in districts
v lore there was sufficient settlement
to Insure t'.ie lines paying trom tho
start. In proof of this, take the great
province ol Ontario with nearlj 3,000,-
''���' "������.'",. i", :i times lhe population
of British Columbia. The total mile-
a:*e of Interurban railways In Ontario
is roughly 300 miles. Radiating out
rf Mew Westminster alone my company operates 156 miles nt electric Interurban railways, making your city
the centre of the  latgest  Interurban
| system in the Dominion.    Leaving out
the  city   systems   entirely,  our  total
interurban     and     suburban     mileage;
amounts to approximately 226 miles.
Courage and  Enterprise.
"I am sure you will agree with  me
tnat m>  Company nas not been lack-
Ilig   in   .Min; ������������   and   enterprise.     We'
I have perhaps gone ahead a little too)
i rapidly but we are .s.'iui'i-d (hut the I
1 future  of   British   Columbia   will   jus- j
' tify cur actions.
At the present time we are passing ���
I tbroii'.'h   a   period   of  depression   but I
I my  company  is not in  any  way  dl.-
i courage 1. and we anticipate a  period:
ot prosperity very shortly.
1    "A  few weeks ago I  had the pleas-J
lure  of  Inspecting    your    harbor   Improvement     scheme    which   you  are|
| now  carrying  out,  and  in  connection!
i with this I must congratulate you on!
your courage in  shouldering so great:
an  undertaking.    Like my company,!
til   may  be   said   yon  nre  anticipating
I the future somewhat  but I trust and!
believe,   ns    in    ou!    en. e,   your   faith
In tl ���. future of your undertakings will
be full} justified.
The day  has gone by when a  business  man,  a.  company  or  community
cnii   sit   down   and   wait   business   toi
come,   it is to the wide-awake   and j
progressive   business   man   and   community  thai   prosperity  comes.
As a  director of a company  Which
has   invested   millions   in   and   around ,
your city, it is gratifying to find such j
n spirit of ��� ptlmlsu. in New Westmin-1
in parting, I wish to assure you that
my company Will always heartily cooperate with you in all things tending towards the advancement of nTw
Westminster and the. rich territory adjacent to your city. We fully realise
that your prosperity means our prosperity, and for many years we have
been honestly striving, not always
under encouraging circumstances, to-
do our share towards bringing about
the expansion of which New Westminster is capable.
In my new position in London, I
still hope I may be of some use to
you as 1 .ball be brought Into contact wilh the leading men in financial circles and my knowledge of New
Westminster and its ambitions, and
its position geographically, can be
used  to advantage.
Vou are business men and you have
taken tills hour from your own affairs to do me an honor which 1
most sincerely appreciate. I must
must not, therefore, take up more of
you-   time.
I thank the chairman for ills kind
words ami friendly reference to my
company   and   myself,   whicli   I   shall
be glad ti nvey to my colleagues in
London. I wish your city every good
wish and an early realization of the
prosperity   which   it   Is  entitled   to.
Gentlemen, I thank you all and
wilh you good luck.
A vole nt thanks was moved hv
Alderman T s Annandale and seconded by C, A. Welsh, to Mr. Sperling,
which was carried with the singing or
'Kor He's a Jolly Good  fellow."
