Vancouver, M.iy 21. Shortly after
eight o'clock this evening the Jury
in the case of Jack Kong, the Chin-
ose boy charged with tlie. murder of
.Mis. Charles Millard, returned a verdict of manslaughter.
The verdict was a complete sur-
prlso as few had the slightest suspicion that the self-confessed murderer would escape with so light a verdict.

This evening the general sentiment
I on tlie street and iu public places is
one of decided dissatisfaction with
' the result of the trial. Coming, as it
does, after the confession of the defendant yesterday on Ihe stand, many
are unable to understand how the
members of the jury could arrive at
such  a  conclusion.
While there  is much  opposition  to
the  verdict  there is not the slightest |
indication thai the dissatisfaction wil
develop into anything serious

'I'he most serious forest fire of the
season started early yesterday afternoon, and was still burning when

arose from the burning timber and

into the thousands of dollars, but as

After a luli ol seven days lie Hum
air. school board held another stormy
session at West Burnaby last night,
the argument extending over three
hours without any appreciable result
ami at ll o'clock an adjournment was
taken until Thursday next.
The storm area centred around the
proposed Vancouver Heights school
which Trustee Humes desires to have
started immediately while the other
members of the hoard are displaying

night, for no sooner had  thi   meeting

mittee,    maintaining    lhat    Trustees
Herd and Churchland, who wen. pres-,
ent,  had   resigned  and   therefore  had '
no right  to deliberate upon matters
connected  with the hoard
To i vade this quandary tin- board
appointed Trustee Herd to act as temporary chairman,
Tlie   crux   of   the   trouble   was   tlie
agreement with Architect Bowman in
CI inn et ion with percentage fees of the
prepared plans for a new school at
Vancouver Heights, accepted by the
1918 board, which called lor a sum
<-i $2200, The board finds ahat while
these plans call for an expenditure of
$75,000 there is only about $-ir>,0HU
available at tin- present tlnn and new
plans will have to be prepared.
Mr. Bowman appeared before the
board and wanted fai, play, stating
th.it he was prepared for a compromise in the matter, No action was
taken and probably will not be taken
until after the election.
During an argument in which a
spectator entered some comment,
Trustee Burnes turned to the gallery
with a retoit. "I am coming out to
lick you some of these days," and
while discussing finance Trustee Coul-

Only   Solution  of  the   American   Railroad Problem���Certain to Eventually   Come   to   that   Point.
Washington. May 21, ��� Absolute
monopoly of transportation under government regulation and control was
suggested by Charles S. Mellen, for
mer president of the New York. New
Haven and Hartford railroad, to tlie
Interstate commerce commission today as the solution of tlie American
railroad problem.
"To  get  efficiency   and   economy."
Mr,  Mellen  asserted,  "then-  must   bei
a   monopoly;   and   that   monopoly   is j
certain  to  he the   I'nited  States  gov- I
eminent." I
A little later lie remarked "every
time a railroad official comes to
Washington he has to take off his hat
to some government official."
Mr. Mellen appeared to have recovered from his evident fatigue of
yesterday   when   he   appeared   before
the commission today to resume his
testimony. He was virile and active,
mentally and physically. He responded to questions fired at him by Chief
l oiinsel Jos. W. Polk vigorously and
promptly, never hesitating a second
for a word.

convention was the broad equality
which had marked American diplomacy.
Exemption of Vessels.
Taking   up  the  specific  guestion   of
exemption of American coastwise vessels,  thf-i senator said  the law of 1912
granting this exemption violated  the
���   equality  guaranteed   by    the    treaty
This was true, he argued, because no
real   coaslwise   trade   of   tlie    United
States could pass  through this canal,
i'lini  miles   away,   and   consequently,
what   Hie  law   did   was  to  exempt  a
class of American oversea trade without  a;  the same time  exempting the
like  oversea  trade  of tlreat     Britain.
Russia,  Mexico and other countries,
i     The senator said   that  he  was  voting   for   reptal   now   because     in     tlie
'judgment  of   Senators   best     able     to
i judge   the   senate   would  no:   vote   to

Discredited and Dishonored.
"Right or wrong." he said, " if we
decide tliis in our favor and refuse
; to arbitrate we are discredited and
dishonored. We have repudiated our
own principals. Now let any senator who votes against repeal, take tin
responsibility of leading his country
into that position. If every constituent of mine was looking forward ti

Jead my country. Had I in my soul
all the nation hatrnl taught in mj

In conclusion, Mr. Root said In
would venture to say American diplomacy had enobled and sweatened International intercourse. He called ,up-
on his fellow senators to meet their
duty to their country in the same big
and noble spirit that John Hay had
met his.

Mr. Henderson then rose to address
t\r   fury for the defence.    He said:
Oentlomen of the Jury.l am called upon lo address you on behalf of this
boy, u boy of Chinese parentage who
is charged  with
murder,    lie
I st liidience.    	
After recalling the events as nar- j|
rated by Kong leading up to the killing, he proceeded. "Mrs. Millard, tn
a mom.-nt of anger, picked up the
knife and raised It, saying something
like (bis: 'if you don't do this. 1
will en; off your ear.' Do you for a
moment think tlia- she would carry
out that threat? if yon wore there,
would you not have dismissed it In
a moment? But this boy is a Chinaman. He comes from a country
where from history we learn that for
acts of disobedience a hand is lopped !

cltement   when   sin-   continued   after
him, he struck  her again a blow on

"What was th.- crime if Mm. Millard had fallen on the carpet and
there drew her last breath, bleeding
from the wound on her forhead. Was
ii murder or was It not manslaughter?"
Mr.   Henderson   then   definid   murder,  saying  ilia'   according  to  law   it I
must  be the  result of something de
liberate.    Nothing   had   been   shown
here,,he said, to prove that the blow ]
had not been struck in the hoi blood ;
of anger.
The accused  hud been alone in the I
house with  Mrs.  Miller, Mr,  Hender- |
son continuid.    If he  wished  to kill !
her,  to  murder   lier.   he  could   have j
done so during the night or if he had
deliberately   planned   the  deed,   could ���
he have not Induced her to go to   the j
basement and killed ber there?   Was '
there   anything    to   make   it   certain
that   he   killed   her   iii   anything   bin

Mr. Henderson pointed out that tin ;
stor\   told   of   the   affair  by   the   ne- j
1 cused  (;>  Inspector  Jackson   and   De- j
i puty  Chief   MeKae    had    home    the
marks  of   truth���so  much    so    thai
Jackson   had   believed   him   and   had
expressed himself sympathetically.
Kong had tried to awaken ber, he

Blstanoe would you have any difficulty���the same  difficulty   In    Judging
the evidence?    But it was the unhappy  resolution,  the fear that   Mr.  Mil-
laid   would   kill   him   or   injure   Uim
on his return that induced him to out
the body  In  the  furnace, that makes
your work   so   hard.    This   and   the
other efforts of the licensed -the h'd
lr,g of clothes and the efforts to deceive the officers was only a nntura
desite,  born   of   fear,   to shield   himself from the consequences of his unhappy act." said   Mr.  Henderson
Touched on  Differences.
Variations  In   minor details of  the
stories  told  by   the accused  aud  Uncrown  witnesses   were  touched  upon,
but  Mr.  HendqrBon argued this only
pointed   out   that   (be  story   told     by
Kong  was  true.    The story  told    by

should  not  make    any  difference, as
I Kong   had  believed  ber  to  be  dead.
Tlie   Mm ft   tin   the   night   of   March
121, while  tho motive explained by the
J accused did not seem to be sufficient,
could  not   be  taken  as  a  motive  for
' tbe   killing  of   Mrs.   Millard,   claimed
i counsel  for the  prisoner.
"There are some questions that
you must answer in considering the
evidence," he w��nt on. Did the accused intend to cause the death of
Mrs Millard? If he Intended t-> cause
bodily injury, did be know thai the
injury would cause death? When he
lifted that chair, did hi- know that a
blow from a chair would cans,- death?
In conclusion, Mr. Henderson point-
i d out the fact that the prisoner ��a<
a Chinaman, but he asked that the
jury give the evidence tbe same consideration as would be afforded to J

What a jolt it must have been to the fur trade, when

Energy, linked with Advertising, has turned the
month of January into the biggest selling season
for white goods. Advertisements of a high stimulative power, combined with a disregard of "seasons,"
have opened up automobile selling two months
earlier than was once thought possible. Advertising
lias started Christmas shopping early in October
instead of the middle of December.
Advertising rises superior to seasons and thermometers. The right kind of Advertising strikes a
responsive cord in human nature���and human
nature is the same in August as in December.

aiy 17, Lord lUadstan-* fives his views
an two poi.-iis of importance���first, as
'ii whether in bis opinion tbe strike
was genuine, and, secondly, as to
whether lhe deilaiation of martial
law  was justifiable.
In regard to the first. Lord (Had
stone says that uc fiuds it impossible
to convince himself tb^it the strike ordered by Mr. Poutsma and confirm
ed by the trades hall men was not a
purely artificial strike, designed to
disorganize the government and to
make the trades hall paramount at
the expense of the country.
On the second point, as to whether
the declaration of martial law was
justifiable. Lord Cladstoue says that
ihe government, having come to the
conclusion that the strike meant, In
reality, civil war against thf-ni, decided to act in such a derisive manner that no armed collision should
ter the use of firearms,
take place and no occasion  be given
The declaration of martial law, Lord
Gladstone continues, so fur -from causing exasperation, undoubtedly brought
relief and satisfaction, not only to
the people who had no direct connection with tiie strikers, but to a large
number of workmen who had. From
the moment of the proclamation the
strike collapsed like a pack of cards
and there were no casualties of any-
Whatever theorists may say, Ixird
Gladstone Insists in conclusion, the effect of martial law was to relive the
whole country from actual peril and
-i state of tension which in itself was a
