The charge against Powell was not
brought up at the last assize court,
the crown traversing the case following the acqultal of Charles Dean who
was supposed to be a partner of
Powell's in the crime of looting the
local branch of the iBank of Montreal.
If the crown proposes to try the
man at the assize sitting which opens
on Monday next it would appear that
subpoenas would have been sent out
by this time, but according to the police authorities no such step has yet
been taken.
Unless the authorities at Victoria
are handling the case the time to serve

either move for a dismissal of the

almost assuredly be strongly fought

not steer well, that her wheel jammed

which sank her on May 29, that she
swerved badly In the river, and that

Proposition to Issue "Baby" Bonds is
Heartily Approved and All Available   Information   Secured.
The issuing of "babyv bonds by
the city council was the subject of
an hour's discussion yesterday afternoon between representatives of the
city finance committee and delegates
from the Trades and Labor Council,
Ixjcal Council of Women aud the Progressive association.
No definite conclusion was arrived
at, but the finance committee will report upon the conference to the city
cdpncil, and set about gathering data
from Nelson and Kaslo, B. C, and the
cities of St. Paul and San Francisco
as to the system In vofelie and all information bearing upon the subject.
The suggestion was also made that
the accumulated information be sent
to the government with a request to
make inquiries and if found expedient
pass the necessary legislation to enable municipalities to Issue the small
bonds and use their sinking funds for
redvmption  purposes.
There was unanimity in regard to
the principle of catering for the small
investor but doubt as to its practibil-
ity was expressed by several of the
aldermen. The great obstacle was
the redeemable at sight proviso and
this appeared to be Insurmountable
at present. As the mayor pointed out.
the council could issue bonds of $10
or other small denominations, but they
were absolutely precluded by the government from using their sinking
funds for redemption at sight purposes.
A suggestion that it might be tried
as an experiment by selling what was
still on hand of their small local improvement loans was made by Alderman Kellington and discussed.
A Success in St. Paul.
Wm_Malden stated that in St. Paul
the treasurer's office had issued $1-
DOO.000 in eight weeks, of which $200,-
000 worth was cancelled in the same
time leaving $1,700,000 In the treasury
office. He thought local and municipal patriotism would be a considerable factor in the success of the
scheme.     It   might   be   tried.     They

The springing of Galway's evidence
by  C.  S.  Haight,  New  York  lawyer
for the owners of    the Storstad, the
collier  which  rammed  tbe  Empress,
caused Lord Mersey to lose that urbanity  which has up to now been a
distinguishing feature of his conduct
of the  proceedings.    He made biting
remarks  about     Galway,   forgot bis
name,   and   referring to   him   as  tbe
man   from  the  Neptune    Inn,  where
Galway was stopping, and continually
jabbed him with questions, as to why,
when be considered the steering gear
of a ship the "main asset in life-saving" he had not mentioned tbe alleged defect in tbe Empress' apparatus iu
giving his story to the C. P. R. lawyers  and   to  a  Montreal  newspaper.
His  lordship also  developed  a  most
sarcastic  line of argument while he
read Mr. Haight a lesson on his duty
in   the   court,  severely   condemning
what he thought was an attempt on
the  part of the Storstad  legal  battery to keep the Galway testimony up
their sleeves.
Charge of Cowardice Unfounded.
In the afternoon his lordship initiated a conference among the lawyers,
who came out of It deciding that the
charges of cowardice lodged against
some of the Empress and Storstad s
crews were unfounded.

Well, the Dominion government grain elevator goes to
Vancouver. The federal authorities chose to recognize
the pull of a city in preference to the merits of a great-
freshwater port and the interests of a farming district of
four million acres, which doesn't say much for the judgment of the federal authorities. But, as the villain in the
melodrama usually puts it, "The deed is done": it's the
fortune of war���and it did look like war for a while back
there at Winnipeg.
Naturally New Westminster and the district tributary
to it used all honorable means to land that elevator for the
Fraser river, partly because the interests of this city and
district centre about the Fraser, but mainly on account of

Greenwood never looked as well as
it does just now. A number of old
buildings that were eyesores for a
���.ood many years have been pulled
down and in most cases the ground on
which they stood has been bought and
improved. Many in Oreenwood are
buying homes and are beautifying
them. The rains of the last few
weeks have made everything grow
and the hillsides are covered with
lupin, Indian paint brushes and wild
roses. The completion of the Kettle
Valley line Is expected to mean much
lo Oreenwood,
step after step, by which the boy1
i passes till he arrives In his room and i
he thinks what a fine entrance pupil
the boy will make, which reminds ih
of the old Scottish witch that gazed!
on the master of Ravenswood and
thought as she foresaw his near doom,
"What a honnie corpse he will make."
We are not surprised to hear that a
school for defective pupils is suggested, for if once this thing were instituted the principal with the eagle eye
couid then very easily solve tho problem of perfect entrance classes;
though what pupils would be branded
as defectives is hard to say, seeing
that teachers differ so widely on individual cases, but it is quite likely
that some Sir Walter Scott in embryo
would be kindly consigned to this humane institution.
The manner in which some of the
subjects on the school curriculum have
come to be taught on account of examinations Is at once deplorable and
laughable. Take history, for instance.
In many of our 100 per cent, schools
it is taught by a system of typical entrance examination questions and
model answers; and we venture to say
that an examination of the entrance
papers for the past ten years would
reveal  this fact.
Then in literature, the amount of
stuff which is crammed into the heads
of pupils and which they are made to
answer parrot-like is absurd. Why,
;even Cray's "Klegy In a Country
Churchyard" is taught for "entrance,''
and the pupils are at present busily
engaged   in  discovering  why  such  or

James    Fraser,    of    Wisconsin,    Has
Served   Under  Four  Flag,  and
Is Spry Old Soldier.
Milwaukee, June 18.���James Fraser.
a civil war veteran and an inmate of
the soldiers' home, was a happy man
last Sunnday. It was his eightieth
birthday, and there was some one in
the city who had not forgotten him.
\ civil war veteran's widow met Fraser at Third street, and, knowing it
was his birthday, purchased a red rose
and placed it in his coat lapel.
"I have fought under four '.'lags, ln
eluding Canada's and France's, and 1
am ready to fight again before 1 die,"
he said.
"When the war broke out In 1M>1  I
enlisted  and  fought  till   1866   in   the
Seventeenth Vermont. Then I was discharged.    Later the  Fenian  uprising
broke out.   So I joined the Canadian
volunteers  and  fought  at  Fort  Krie.
After  that   war  I   went  to   Manitoba
/with the Canadian troops and helped
'put down tlie Indian rebel. Louis Kiel.
In 1870 1 joined a party of Cana
dians and enlisted in the British army
that went to relieve Khartoum. There
1   helped   shove  a   bayonet   into   thej
brother of the Mad Mullah. We Americans used to sing this ditty, much to
the  amazement  of the  British:   'Madj
Mullah  on  a   summer's  day,     burned
Khartoum  in  Africay.'
"After that war we returned to Canada When we heard the French were
havlg trouble in Morocco a group of
us enlisted as a special company ol '
expeit sappers. We were in commission about three months, after which
we returned lo Vermont. Later 1 went
to Manitowoc, where 1 was employed
on the streets."
Fraser Is very spry for all his years.
! "1    can dance the tango, too," he remarked, going through several glides
and dips.
His one yearning is to marry aud
be declared by rn�� tlr-in next fall rolls
around he would have a better half to
take care of  him,
"1 was to have been married once,"
he said, "but my bride was taken from

Paper of New Westminster
and the Fraser Valley. See
that your business announcements appear in its columns.
Last week I discussed the opportunities that
every retailer possessed for extending his business
outside of the area of the town in which he lives.
The subject is so vast, however, that there are several points I propose to discuss now as pointers for
the better advertising of articles that retailers adopt
as proprietaries.
One thing should be kept in the foreground at all
times in advertising any article is that the use of
long words and superlatives is inadvisable. It is
hardly too much to say that superlatives are always
liable to be wrong. It is very easy for you to say
that your mustard, tea, soap or any other article is
the best, the finest or the purest in the worlds but it
is just as easy to say so if it were actually the worst
Mere statement goes for nothing.
There are plenty of prietary advertisers who
use such statements as these, but this fact does not
make the statement good matter to print. It may
be taken for granted that the products would not be
offered if the advertiser did not consider them to be
the best, and the case for purchasing is not advanced
one iota by stating the obvious.
On the other hand truthful and credible reason
for preferring goods does advance the case. "This
mustard is ground from seed grown in a particular
part of the country where the soil is specially adapted for growing mustard. The seed%is carefully examined and sifted to eliminate all alien grain and it
is then ground in a perfectly clean atmosphere with
great precautions against any dust or impurity getting in. The mustard flour, never touched by the
hand, is packed fresh so as to retain the whole of its
flavor." Here are logical arguments that should go
towards convincing the prospective customers for
In advertising tea one might say, "This is blended from a very fine grade of Ceylon Tea of the second year's growth, with   sufficient   proportion   of
Pekoe to give it a distinctive and delightful flavor.
The basis of it is a delicate yet potent leaf, and the
Pekoe which contains the dried flower of the tea
plant gives it a special fragrance that cannot be obtained in tea of any other kind.  As a whole, the tea
used in this blend is free from excessive tannin present in old and heavy tea.   It is therefore of a digestive character."
Similar arguments can be found for any product
used as a proprietary article and the advertiser
should always bear in mind the fact that in order
to convince people who are using competitive lines he
must put himself in the place of the prospect and put
into his advertisements just such arguments as
would induce him to change from one to another^ne

per cent, after thirty days' deposit,
from the trust companies, and draw-
out their money at any time. He did
not see any advantage to people purchasing their bonds even at five per
cent,   in   present  circumstances.
Alderman Kellington explained that
the financial stringency arose from i
the combine between the great London j
and American financiers who had
made up their minds to make the peo*j
pie pay a bigger rate of interest and |
they  had  been  successful.
They  might experiment with $1573,1 Land
the aggregate of the money  left over
on  small  city  bonds  If  they   got  the
power from the legislature.

wanted  to realize.    He did  not think'
the legislature would grant them the |
power  as   they   had   taken   away   the :
power  they   bad  at  one  time.    They
used to have power to lend money in i
their own municipality, on certain improved property, up to a certain percentage, and the government took that
away from municipalities.    If they issued  bonds  now they  would  have  to
see that the interest paid  was some-
thing that would pay the person buy-1
ing them.    They might get the muni-
clpallties to take the question up. He ;
suggested that they might open up a
subscribers'  list and find    out    how-
many  bonds they could sell, redeem-
able within a certain time.   They could
not issue certificates.
Mr.  Maiden, referring to  Alderman j
Smith's  argument,  said   that   he   had
left  out  the   local   patriotism   feeling
in building up a city.
Alderman Smith did not believe
there was any sentiment in dollars
and cents.
Redemption  a  Difficulty.
D. S. Cameron said the important
point was the redemption difficulty.
It was possible the fraternal societies in the city might invest.
Alderman Bryson suggested bonds
for five years. By the end of that
time they might have accumulated a
sufficient fund to meet the demands
for repayment.
The   mayor  said   that  ou   the   point
of   asking   the   government   for   legislation on the line of using tlie  sinking  fund  it  would   mean  the  government appointing sinking fund eommis-, un,|
sioners.    The government now stood
behind municipalities and had already j

supported only half the population of
the Punjab against four-fifths of that
of Assam. By far the largest proportion of traders was found In Burma,
where industries were more centralized, with the result that a larger distributing agency was required.
Proceeding, Mr. Gait said that the
extremely primitive character of the
functional distribution in India was
| shown by the fact that 90 per cent, of
' the ptople were engaged in 26 simple
, avocations commonly followed In ev-
! ery village, such as pasture and agri-
: culture, grain husking and parching,
i basket making and oil pressing. Of
; the total population rather more than
j half had been returned as workers.
! This category Included about two-
j thirds of the males, but less than one-
| third of the females.
ln conclusion, Mr   Gait stated that
the   industrial   census    showed    that
tin-re were, in the whole of India, 7,118
I factories, as defined at the census, i.
e.,   places   In   which   at   least  twenty
i hands were employed, which gave eni-

I in every 1,000 of population.    Of these

Berlin. June IS.���Dr. Uebknecht. i
the Socialist deputy, publishes in the j

at Queens Park���Chambers Scored Deciding Goal.
Sapperton crept to within striking
distance of the city league leadership
in lacrosse last night when the East
Ends defeated the West Ends by a
score of 3 to 2.
The contest was of a ding dong
character, neither team having the
edge until the flnul two minutes of
play when Jack Chambers caught
llughle napping in goal, a long ahot
getting   by   the   star   custodian   with
the ism champions.
Although the champs made desperate efforts to equalize, the gong went
with the green shirts pressing around
through the onslaught.
Only three penalties Were handed
out, Ited McDonald being responsible
for two bench warmings of five minutes duration each, while one West
End -player got sent off. The wood was
laid on hard tit that, especially when
near goal, although hardly enough to
warrant Interference.
The first quarter passed without a
M-ore being made, the outer defence
work of both teams being too strong.

I MONDAY, JUNE  22ND.,  1914, AT 12
Victoria. June 18.���Hon. \V. R. Ross,
minister of lands, is very hopeful
that good results will flow from the
town planning convention, which he
had the pleasure of attending at the
sesisons held during the latter part
of May in Toronto. The deliberations
were attended by men well qualified
to discuss the subject, and the speeches reflected most exhaustive study.
.Mr. Adams took up the draft of the
City   Planning  act   which   it   is   proposed to submit to the nine provincial
governments   in   the   Dominion   with
the irequest that it be adopted.  "The
difference, between this  proposed act
land that in force in England is not in
I degree, but  in character, for it  must
ibe made    adaptable    to    local conditions.'' he said.
Not Garden Plan.
"It  must  be considered   from    the
iarchitectural and local point ol   view.
To those who think it rather drastic,
I let me say that such advanced  measures are  not    accomplished    without
some difficulties." He pointed out the
lack   of   understanding   of   the   exact
meaning of city and town planning.   It
must not  be confounded with  garden
city planning, for that belonged to a
class of private enterprises, none the
I less praiseworthy on that account, but
quite different in application. "The ap-
I plication  here will  be  wider than   in
[Germany and Sweden, where It is confined   more  to  the  monumental   side.
j As   interpreted   by   the   English   law
every  aspect of city  life  is covered,
the essence being in the health of the
I people  and   the   provision   of   homes.
On t'.iat basis we build up our theory
I of the future.   These things," hi- said.
! "were tin- essentials, and while  more
j advanced     matters,   such   as     play-
I grounds,   parks,   public   baths,   would
also be considered, they could not be
classed  under the head of immediate
"The   first   thing   is  to  prepare   the
land now built on. and  we must not
fail   to   try   and   remedy   the   existing
I evils,'' he went on.
Limelight   pictures  were    shown  of
liondon and suburbs, where city plan-
| ning was being applied to surprisingly
| good   effect.     Maps   of   London   were
I shown,   clearly   illustrating   the   city
then and nn\i.   Detailed plans of city
i planned   suburbs   gave   the   delegates
a  good   idea   of   the   working   of   tlie
plans,   especially    of     Huislip.     The
constitution   governing   the  operation
of act tln-re was also read In part by
tin- speaker.    "Roads    are    receiving
I quite a lot of attention there, as here,
j for the reason that traffic is becoming
i heavy," lie said.
Wide Streets Not Costly.
"Width   of  streets  is  a   matter   re-
| cciving   very   earnest     consideration.
Streets of 17ii feet in  width are  eon-
siden d  to  he just  as cheap  as  Uiose
j of eighty  feet, as  the  street  ears  can
be run  in a grass reservation at the
side, taving the cost of paving in  the
oar tracks," Mr. Adams said. Pictures
of   the   development   of     new     areas
I around London, Eng., under the Town
Planning  act,  were  then  shown,  contrasting tin- areas laid out. in  lots of
4,  (i,  X   and   1-   lo   the  acre   to  those
(laid out hy the real e.state man of today.    An English home, where a work-
i man could live as well in his cottage
at $1.50 a week as well   as a king in
his  palace  was also shown.  Criticism
of the act came from Oermany, where
it was not understood,    The  streets

Arranges  for  Big   Exhibit  at
Panama Fair.
Victoria. June IS.- Colonel William
Hutchinson, exhibition commissioner
for the Dominion government, spent
yesterday in the city in the course of
an official visit to the coast. Colonel
Hutchinson, in the execution of his
departmental duties, has under his
jurisdiction the supervision of the Canadian exhibit at the Panama exhibition at San Francisco, which opens in
February next.
Colonel Hutchinson is desirous that
the   exhibit   shall   be  national   in   its,
scope, demonstrating,    in    the    most j
comprehensive fashion, the wonderful
natural  wealth of the  various    prov-1
inces.     His   present   visit  to   British
Columbia is made with the idea of en ;
listing the co-operation of the provincial  government.
yesterday Colonel Hutchinson conferred wltll the premier and other
ministers on the matter of a provincial
exhibition. He wa-* assured that the
government would co-operate with the
Dominion autorltles in every way. it
is planned that the mineral exhibit
from Lie province shall he on the
most attractive scale, and in his on*
tpacity of minister of miues, Sir Richard Mcllride pr-omiseH Colonel Hutchinson that the entire field staff of the
department would be placed at his
disposal to get the particular class of
exhibits which would he considered
the most useful from an educational
standpoint, as an advertisement of the
mineral resources of the country.
Speaking of Colonel Hutchinson's
mission, Sir Richard said; "I assured tip- commissioner that. Iiritish Columbia could he depended upon to do
everything possible tu make the display from this" section of the country
in keeping with tbe wealth "f natural
resources whicli we posssess and reflect credit upon the efforts of the
federal authorities, While we shall
make no individual effort as a province at the great Panama exposition,
ue shall, to the fullest extent, co-operate with Ottawa. To that end the
government has instructed the heads
of all departments to lend every assistance to Colonel Hutchinson, under
whose direction I am sure the Canadian display at San Francisco will
prove a striking success."

Paris,   France,  .lane  18,    A   scheme
by which Belgium should cede to Germany that portion Ot the Congo situ- i
ated to the north and northeast of the
Congo river. In order that  Germany
may effect a junction between the \
Cameroon and Oermany West Africa .
has been discussed in certain setcions .
of the (ierman and the French  press.
An emphatic denial of any such intention on the part of Belgium appears
In a current Issue of the Temps from
thai   paper's   special   Brussels  corre-,
E-pondent,   M.  de  Mares.    Already  the |
Temps  has  warned  its  readers   when!
tin- scheme for the cession of t'ne Congo   was   first   broached,   that   such   a j
scheme emanated neither from colonial
nor from political circles, and tlrat it I
was looked upon favorably In Belgium
only   by   those   who  were  opposed   tn
any colonial  policy  whatever.
The Temps now states categorically
that  the  Beigiau    government    never:
even considered  for a -ingle  moment j
the idea of selling the Congo or a part S
of it.    There is also not a particle of
truth   in  the statement  made hy  certain (Ierman papers that the strongest '
supporters of tiie Belgian colonial policy advocate the sale of a part of the
colony; nm* in that which represents
the Belgian people as becoming more ;
acru.stonierl to the idea that the country  will  soon  not  he able to manage I
all its vast enterprises.
Public opinion, on the contrary, is
resolved to fare every sacrifice neces-1
s.tated h> th-   needs of the Congo.   Iti
Is the conviction of both political and:
official cirrics thai the Congo must be
maintained intact, and tbat to accede
a part of it mould compromise the future of the whole colony.
M   de Mares Is further In a position ;
to  know   that  on     several     occasions,
when   Central    \frica   was  the  subject
of intertuition.il discussion, formal as
BU lances were given by Berlin to Brussels to the effect  that Germanj   had
no   designs   whatever  on   the   Belgian i
Congo, and that Belgian rights and Interests <��� ould ' e respected as much in
Africa as in   Enropc.

Summer Advertising
The most valuable asset in advertising is age. It is something which cannot be rushed or bunched. It has no
overnight competition. The new advertiser can't date
Advertising cannot take a vacation without a loss.
The cumulated values of previous months or years immediately begin to shrink or evaporate. It will invariably
cost more to make good the shrinkage than to omit the
Good advertising is a continuous performance before
the same audience. No better definition was ever invented.   It admits of no exceptions or variations.
Buyers are not so firmly attached to buying traditions during the Summer months as at other seasons.
They go about more, enjoy more freedom, are interested more in variety. The new advertiser finds it
easier to break in; the old advertiser finds it necessary
to be more persistent and watchful. The province of
advertising is to attract new customers, as well as to
hold old ones, and the vacation season, more than any
other, is the season of changes; the season, more than
any other, when the advertiser can least afford to
permit his goods and his service to be forgotten. The
trifling purchase of July or August is often the forerunner of a much larger purchase in October or
