The proposed sale ol the waterfront ,
lots Came up before the city council I
hist evening, when Mayor Koar. an
nounced that a quit claim ded to the
0 reshore had been received from the
Dominion government, giving the citj
of N.-w Westminster a perfect title
to the bits. He mentioned that he
thoughi :t would be to the Interesl
of the city to sell 50 watei fronl  lotB.
The lots, he sal 1. svoul I ' subject
to assess mi nt, Pei le who were n .v,
renting the foreshore objectd to ties
but they vould have the first chan i ���
o:" buying or refusing to buy the l
leased I ��� them. II "as his Intention
to ask the parties who wer.- renting
property along ihe waterfront to meet
the city council at some future date,
when ihe mailer would be thoroughly
gone Into. It might also be advisable
to submit a bylaw to the people on
the question. The money realized by
the sule of the lots would be used
lo reduce tlie bonded indebtedness of
the city, and would be needed to meet
ihe payment of $1.14,000 which falls
due in 1909, this being len per cent
o'  tlie   city's  indebtedness.
After the mayor-had concluded ids
remarks, the clerk read a letter received from .1. B. McMullan, assistant
solicitor of the C. P. K.. in which he'
usknowledged receipt cf a copy of
the form of conveyance of the water
lots along Front street. He stated
that he had not been able to see Mr.
Marpole, but that he would bring the
matter to liis notice. The leiter was
filed  for reference.
Electrician   Reports.
P. T. Bowler, city electrician, submitted his report with reference to
tbe electrolysis of the water mains
by the return current from the B. C.
E. H. company's lines. The voltage
o: the different localities was given
and also the difference in "potential"
between tlie track and tiie water
mains. The difference ranged from .tii
to 1.5 volts. In addition to his own
report, Mr. Bowler also submitted a
lengthy report on electrolysis by an
i Xpert, E. P. Malthews. showing the
effect of electrolysis on water mains.
Experts   Differ.
After the reading of the report. Aid.
Howay rose and said that the matter,
was ono of great importance, and that
it would have to be considered with
the greatest possible care. He had
had a conversation dining the day
with Mr. Siott. the water superintend-1
ent, who had shown him'a magazine
devoted exclusively lo gas and water
latters, and which contained a lengthy record article on electrolysis. He
had n ad thi article carefully, and
had come to the conclusion that it
differed In some points with the opinion of the expet   pi I
,   dan.   In view ol ihe   I  '���  en
ot  opinion    etwi in       ithorities,    he
wi .'. i ire   re   i amend   that   u
b�� referred to the water committee
to report. After being duly seconded,
the motion was carried.
Fire   Chief   Invited.
Only tour communications were on
the   file   last   night,   and   these   wore
quickly disposed Of. One was from
the Pacific Association ol Fire Chiefs,
inviting the council to Bend the city
too chief to the annual i onvention to
bo held at Calgary on August 28, 29,
Su. 31, This was referred to the fire
. i nmlttee to report.
M. Sinclair wrote calling attention
to the bad condition of the sidewalk
i n the south side of St. George's
street, fie complained that several
accidents had happened ihere. The
matter was referred to the board of
works to report.
Roi on Lennie, secretary of the
Board of School Trustees, wrote calling attention to the overflow of water
(iu tie- school grounds from Queen's
avenue on acount of that street not
having a drain to carry away the water when it rains. The matter was
referred to the board of w irks to report.
Dumping   Ground   Needed.
Frank Booth, city scavenger, wrote
informing the city council that he had,
according to instructions received,
stopped damping refuse on the vacant
lot at the foot of Mclnnes street, and
asking that a new site be appointed
where refuse could be dumped. A
motion was made that the matter be
referred to the health committee to
report, but before it was seconded.
Aid. Adams remarked that they could
not afford to wait for a report, and
that all the merchants had been noti-
iie.l that they must stop dumping rubbish there, and they had no other
place to put if. Thi police had notified him that the back of his store
must be cleared immediately, and unless a new dumping ground was selected, all the merchants would find
themselves in a very unenviable position. After some discussion, the
words "to report" were changed for
"to act" and ihe motion was carried.
Orphanage Rebate.
Aid. Jardine reported for tlie finance
committee with reference to the application of the sisters of the Orphanage,
who had asked for a rebate on the.
luxes some time ago. The ques'.i .::
had been taken up in committee, and
it had beeu decided thai if certain
Improvements were made to the property the matter of a rebate would be
Regret   and   Sympathy.
Under   iho   head,   of   new   business,
Aid.   Howay,   with   reference  to  the
- , 1 1, :i death of W. B. Townsend, said
that   it   would   be   fitting  and   proper
that  in  view of his connection with
the  ciiy  as  well   as  of  the  fact   that
li"   had   been   mayor,  and   had   spent
.    - ami ng them, that  some
notice  should  be taken of his.
I |  lie  suggested  that
i omml   ee ilnted to draft a
formal reso! ition i regret and sympathy with the bereaved. The sug-
gi ation was adopted, and Aid. Howay
and Jardine were appointed lo drafl
the resolution,
This concluded the evening's business, and the council adjourned shortly after !��� o'clock.

Clarke, barrister and one-time candidate for parliament, was fined $10
and costs for striking H. O. Blank-
man, clerk or the police court, in the

sufficient steam in it to cut Blank-
man's lower lip through, requiring
tree stitches to pull lt together, and
loosening a number of his lower
teeth. Following the assault Clarke
was arrested by a constable and taken to the guard room, but was released shortly afterwards on bail.

Mrs.   Creffield    and     Esther   Mitchell
i Are Believed to Be Subjects
for Asylum.
Seattle,  July  23,t���Esther    Mitchell
-and Mrs. Maud Creffleld may possibly
never be tried for the murder of the
brother of the  former and  the man
who Killed the husband of the latter,
George  Mitchell.    Both   women   were
arraigned this morning and after the
legal   formalities   had   been   finished
Superior Judge Frater made an announcement from the bench which in- j
dicates that he is in favor of a com-:
mission being called  to examine into]
the  mental condition of the women,
and of committing them to the insane ;
asylum  if they are decided to be insane.
Judge Frater mentioned the fact'
that a; the trial of George Mitchell
evidence had been introduced showing that the women had been insane
and on that account they had been ordered confined, ono in the state asylum for the insane in Oregon and the
other at the institution maintained by
iho Boys' and Girls' Aid society of
"I    havo   no   official    knowledge   of:
what the defence is to bo in this case," j
sand  Judge Frater,  -inn   my  understanding  is  that   it   will   be   insanity,
and if Ihis Is so I  believe that  it  will
resull   in    a considerable    saving to'
King county both in time and money
to have the mental condition of these
defendants determined  by  a commission  appointed  by  the court."
In   this  respect   Prosecuting  Attor-'
ney Mackintosh and Judge Frater disagree    The matter of calling a commission  has    been discused    by  Mr.
Mackintosh  and   his  chief  assistant,:
John  F.  Miller, with the  result that!
It i.s believed that it will cost as much!
t) examine the women on their sanity!
alone as it will to try them on the
< riminal  charge, and  If the commission .should decide that they were notl
insane it would be necessary to try
them   before   a   jury   and   practically
the same number of witnesses would
be called in the second case as In the
Judge Prater, after he had adjourned court, said that he had not decided
whether he would order a sanity com
mission on his own responsibility or
not. So far as the lawyers for the
two women are concerned, no steps
will he taken in this respect until after the arrival In Seattle of O. V.
Hurt, father of Mrs. Creffield. who is
expected  Wednesday.
Show No Emotion.
Neither  Esther    Mitchell' or  Mrs.
Cteffield  exhibited  the  least  emotion
when   brought  into  court  this   morning.    Both  were    self-possessed    and
heard  Mr.  Mackintosh  read  the  for-1
mal   charge   against   them   with   far
less  show  of  interest  than   was   evidenced  by the four or five  hardened!
looking men who sat inside the crim-1
inal   rail   to   face   foi'mal   charges   Of j
robbery, assault and burglary.
It was the first time the two women j
had seen each other since being lock- j
ed up in the county jail and Mrs. J
Creffield, who had come into the court
rcom first, smiled at Esther Mitchell 1
as soon as the latter took her seat.'
The girl smiled back, but they were
bo far apart as to prohibit anv exchange of confidences.
Esther Mitchell, looking scarcely'
the 18 years which she lays claim to,
was dresed in a dark blue skirt, white;
shirt waist and a straw sailor hat. ���
On her breast was pinned a small red 1
rose, and there was absolutely nothing,
in her appearance to indicate that she.
had spent the pas' few weeks in a
small cell in the county jail, or that
she had aught of trouble on her mind.
Called Before the Bar.
Both women were called at the same
time and both can.e forward without
hesitation,  Esther Mitchell was represented by Attorney Baxter.    Attorney'
Silas Shipley,  who defended    George
Mitchell,  represented    Mrs.   Creffleld.1
He stated to the court, however, that!
he was acting during the formality of
arraignment only and that he did so
at the  request of her  father,  O.  V.
Hurt, who would be in Seattle in a
day or so for the purpose of employing counsel.
During the reading of the informations Esther Mitchell, standing with,
her hand resting on the back of a
chair, bit nervously at her lip, but
Mrs. Creffleld was as immobile as a
statue. Asked if she was ready to
plead the latter said "yes. not
guilty," the resjionse coming almost
before Judge Frater had finished his
Attorney  Shipley  slated     that     the
plea  would  stand   with  the   right  to.
withdraw and file a demurrer. This
right was granted.
Esther Mitchell, through her attorney, asked for time to plead and
was given until a week from tomorrow. The women were then sen* to
their seats and after a few minutes
were led away to the jail.

The  Itisi-  In   the  River.
It is little short of astonishing to
see bow little water is required to float
thc southern river steamers, a boat
loaded with perhaps a thousand hales
of cotton slipping along contentedly
where a boy could wade across Hie
stream. Once, however, the Chattahoochee got too low for even her light
draft commerce, and at Gunboat
shoals a steamer grounded. As the
drinking water on board needed replenishing, a deck band was sent ashore
will: couple of water buckets. Just
nt te. moment a northern traveler ap-
proacbe i the captain of the boat, nnd
asked bim how long he thought they
would have to stay there.
"Oh, only until that man gets back
with a bucket of water to pour into
the river," the captain replied. Presently the deck band returned, and the
stale water from tbe cooler was
emptied overboard. Instantly, to the
amazement of the traveler, the boat
began to move.
"Well, if that doesn't beat thunder:''
he gasped.
The fact was that the boat, touching
the bottom, hnd acted as a dam, and
there was soon backed up behind her
enough water to lift ber over the shoal
and send her ou down the stream.���

Niiit  In  Duya Gone fly.
A book by J. C. Wright entitled "In
the <e"'d Old Times" throws some interesting light on the ways of days
gone by: "Of every three pounds of tea
It was said that two were contraband.
In fact, smuggling was considered a
.perfectly legitimate pursuit. Everybody was ready to profit by it, from
the squire, who filled his cellars with
cheap wine, and bis wife, who adorned
herself iu cheap silks, to the shopkeeper, who gol cheap groceries, or tbe laborer, who got high wages for work
thut was secret, unlawful and perilous.
Even Adam Smith confessed to a weakness for smuggling and nobody was
above bargaining to have a pipe or a
hogshead put in bis cellar at a low figure. Hut smuggling on a large scale
was not carried on without bribery,
perjury, informing, violence and murder."
Of the old time London watchman:
"Ho was wrapped in a wide skirted
heavy coat, a useful garment for protecting him from the cold, but not
adapted to enable him lo cope witb thy
bullies who assaulted the weak and unprotected. He wore low shoes aud a
big broad brimmed hat, which could be
turned up or down, worn forward or
backward. The only means of defense
which Uie watchman seems to have
possessed was a stall' something like
a beadle's. Iu bis left hand he carried
liis lantern."
In those primitive times pins were
manufactured by hand and went
through several stages of manufacture:
Worker No. 1 formed the wire. No. 2
cut it into lengths, No. 3 smoothed it,
the fourlh man made the head, the
fifth stuck it on, lhe sixth ground tbe
point, the seventh washed and dried It,
und it bad to go through three more
hands after that; hence it used to b?
a familiar proverb, "It takes ten mea
to make a pin."

John  Doe  Proceedings.
"John Doe" proceedings were abolished by law in Great Britain in 1852.
Previous to that time John Doe bad
figured iu tiie old fashioned ejectment
action for the recovery of the posses
sion of land, together with damages
for the wrongful withholding thereof.
1 For various reasons of convenience
' and history dating from the reigu of
Edward 111. A did not proceed against
B directly in such a case. Instead A
delivered to B an entirely false statement from the fictitious "John Doe"
that A had devised the land to "John"
for a term of years, and "John" bad
been ousted from it by tbe equally
fictitious "Richard Roe." Then Richard informed H that be was not going
to defend tlie netiou himself, but B
must do it, and so on. Occasionally,
by way of variety, "John Doe" gave
place to one "Goodtltle."

Columbia  JUver  Thrice  Named.
The Columbia river has had three
names. It was lirst called tbe Oregon.
Afterward it was called tbe St. Roque,
hut when it was discovered by Robert
Gray In 1792 it was given the name of
his vessel, the Columbia, In place of
the two floating appellations, Oregon
and St. Roque. According to Whitney,
the original name ot the river was the
Orcjon, "big ear" or "one that has big
ears," the allusion being to the custom
of the Indians who were found In its
region of stretching their ears by boring them and crowding them -with ornaments.

In the faraway, benighted community of 1 Milieu, In Africa, the old fashioned method of throwing a debtor
into prison, where be Is safe from the
torment ing visits of bis creditors, is
not followed. Instead, he is practically turned over to tbe mercy of the
creditors In a literal sense. A heavy
tree log is attached to his bare leg,
and this he Is obliged to drag after
him wherever be goes. There is no
escaping the creditors now, nnd the
log remains bound to his ankle until
bis debts are paid.

I<�� Existence  l��  Mainly   Hue  to the
Builder  Pope.   Klcholns  V.
The present existence of the Vatican
palace ls principally due to Nicholas
V., the builder pope, whose gigantic
scheme would startle a modern architect. Ills plan was to build the church
of St. I'eter's as a starting point and
then to construct one vast central habitat fur the papal administration, covering tho whole of what is called the
Borgo, from the castle of Bant' Angelo
to the cathedral. In ancient times a
portico, or c ivered way supported on
column... led irom the bridge to the
church, and it was probnbly from this
real structure that Nicholas began his
imaginary one, only a small part of
which was ever compl ited. That small
portion alone comprises the basilica
and the Vatican palace, which together
form by far the greatesl continuous
mass of buildings in the world. The
Coliseum Is ',-"��� yards long by 16fl
broad, Including the tbickn iss of the
trails. St. ['i ter's church alone is 2WJ
yard.-, long and 150 broad, so that the
whole Coliseum would easily Btand

third of the rooms now occupied by
the library, counting from the library
side. The windows of these rooms
look upon the large square court of the
Belvedere, aud that part of the palace
is uot visible from without.
Portions of the substructure of tbe
earlier building were no doubt utilized
by Nicholas, and th.- secret gallery
which connects the Vatican with the
mausoleum of Hadrian is generally at-
trihuted to Pope John XXIIL, who
died In 1H7. ind on the whole it may
he said that the Vatican palace is originally a building of the period of the
renaissance, : i which all successive
popes have made additions.
thinly Trade Whicb Onee Flourished
In  slew   Yor-t*s  t onrts,
Tiie elder Wellcr iu "Pickwick" was,
as all admirers oi tbe works of Die-kens will know, a greal believer in the
utility of an alibi as a defense In both
criminal and civil actions.
"Never mind the chnracti -." said Mr.
Welter to his son. "Stick t > the alley-
bl. Nothing like an alley!ii. Sammy;
nothing. Verever he's agoln' to he
tried, me boy, a alleybl's the thing to
get turn off."
This sage advice of Mr. Heller
found frequent corroboration in the
views of criminal lawyers in town up
to a very few years ago. There were
half a century ago more criminal lawyers than there are today, and the
emolument, and fees of criminal lawyers were materially larger in the ordinary run of cases than now. As a
consequence, cases were more often
defended than they are now and pleas
of guilty much more rarer. Then the
alibi witness wa.s a necessary though
usually unwelcome part of the machinery of defense in criminal cases.
The!" is in criminal procedure no better defense than an alibi if sustained.
Alibi witnesses were therefore very
much in demand until juries began to
mistrust them and the penalties f >r the
crime of perjury were visited upon
some of the delinquents
Tor a long time the mendacious
and subsidized testimony of professional alibi witnesses i btalned credence
from jurors, and some of these witnesses, to quote their own language,
"made 8 good thing oul  of it "    Juries
In criminal cases are usually sympathetic where no outside pressure is
brought upon them, and il is the part
of the charge Of every Judge in a criminal case to inform the jury thai the
prisoner at the bar is entitled to every
reasonable doubt. If. therefore, any
uncertainty existed on the point whether or not the prisoner was actually
present at the time and place of the
alleged crime he was entitled to the
benefit of it. but little by little tho
prosecuting officers became acquainted
with the Identity and records of the
professional alibi witnesses. One or
two were prosecuted, Others were
scared off. The commercial value of
the services of the others was decreased, and finally the whole nefarious
business was abandoned, never since
to be revived.

No man can go to congress without

Repressed Sentiments,
People who marry always hear good
wishes, congratulations and other
pleasant remarks, but they miss much
in not bearing the repressed sentiments
which burst forth to others. A woman
who recently received a wedding announcement from a friend was beard
to exclaim in tones of disgust, "YVlKi.t
a willful disregard of tlie manifestation of Providence when she was so
plainly intended for an old maid!"
The  Evidence  Wns  All  In.
A juryman weut to sleep during the
closing speech of one of the counsel In

Find   Sockeyes     Scarce,     but     Much
Heavier This Year Than
Last Year.
The committee of the fisheries commission which made a round of in-
Ijspection of the canneries yesterday,
| hail rather a strenuous day of it. The
I number of canneries operated this
year is less than would be the case
n: a "big" year, and of those in commission not all were running yesterday as the fish are not coming into
the river yet in large numbers. The
report of the commissioners will not
nl course be published, as it is in the
nature of a private communication to
the minister: nut it is understood
thai th-\v found no cause of complaint. The commissioners were accompanied by Dr. Fagan, head of the
provincial health department, who
maintains a close and constant in-
bj ectlon of the canneries.
At nearly every cannery visited, remark was made on the large size of
ihe sockeye caught this year so far.
They appear to he some pounds
heavier, as a rule, than the average
run of these fish.
If his been arranged that the
Quadra, with a committee of the commission, will leave Victoria for the
west coas- of Vancouver island Wednesday morning.

HU Terrible nrliKiitux Frenzy Which
Hint* in Hiirder.
The Moro is a savage, 1 prim :l man,
a Malay, which Is a brunch of one of
the oldest stocks of which we know.
He is subject when nol under the influence of a self contained ruler to
strange, murderous i!- ol Insanity,
When a Moro, withoul effort on bis
part, becomes seized with a desire to
murder he is said 1 1 uuve "run amuck,"
and at such tlm is be will rush wildly,
slashing ami li lllng every one he
chances to meet, even his own people
When, however, he purposely works
himself Into a religious frenzy it Is
with the ih-sire to kill Christians and
by the faith of thc prophet ascend
forthwith into paradise, The Moro In
this state of passion is said to be "ju
ramentado." He has then taken a religious oath, perhaps administered by
some sacred "hadjl" who had duly
made his pilgrimage to Mecca. He has
bound himself up so that he suffers
excruciating agonies and through physical suffering is reduced to a nervous
frenzy. Having once taken the oath.
the Moro "jurainentado" is doomed to
slay until at last be himself is slain.
The Moro is a Mohammedan, but he
has perverted the Mohammedan belief
until nt times lt is a weird, grotesque
and terrible religion. In the heart of
the Moro there is no fear of death. It
Is to bim but nn incident of life, and
his belief, as he has fashioned It, Is
that be who dies In battle Is cleansed
from sin nnd goes straight to tlie bosoms of the hourls in paradise. The
Moro's iden of government is force.
He has never known anything else. If
you nrp kind to him he thinks you fear
him. Ills world Is ruled by fear, not
love. ��� Hamilton Wright In Leslie's
