Waste   of   Water.
V !. Garrett wished to know what
was being done in connection with
the pipe that had been reported as
always running at Sapperton. This
waier was said "o be running a, Mr-
bill's barn, near Cambridge place.
Mr. Stott discredited the story, as
he had been thai way many times and
b>. had never -.en any water wasted.
On one occasion, his attention had
been called to the tap that was running at the lime bm. upon investigating ii, be found thai ibe water was
being used to < .a.: -l.e cream, and tbe
overflow was running into a trough

Knows of No  Leaks.
Tne mayor asked Mi. Sunt whether
he was satisfied that there were no

he was as he bad inspected all over
ibe city. A large quantity of galvanized pipe was used in the fit>, necause
ii had been proved to be the best, and
was used almosl universally at the
present time. The electric currents
deslroyed the lead pipes, lie had re-
en '. placed a meter at the distillery

lo know how much water was being
used there. A leak that had been
complained of at the automatic can
factory had been found, when investigated to waste about a gallon uf
waier every twenty-four hours.
Doubts  Dog   Story.
Mr. Stott said he had never seen
dogs being thrown into the reservoir
for a swim, and did not think this
was done.
Aid. Garret inquired how often he
wenl there.
Mr. Stott, "I have been going there
about 2G5 limes a year for the la it
fourteen years, and have never se^n
such a thing.''
Aid. Garrett remarked that he
knew a man who had seen some
youths throwing their dogs in the old
reservoir. The men were not known.
The mayor said Ihat if any one was
caught at  ihis practice, rney should
certainly be prosecuted. Mr. stott
remarked lhal. a new fence had just
been erected, and all holes had been

Washington, D.C., June 15.���Chairman Wadsworth, of the House Committee on Agriculture, tonight made public the correspondence between President Roosevelt and himself regarding the meat inspection bill, prepared by the Committee.
The President in his letter says that almost every
change in the amendment wa? for the wo^se, as compared with the senate amendment and in his judgment framed so as to minimize the chance of rooting
out the evils in the packing business.
In his reply Mr. Wadsworth declares the President is "very, very wrong", in his estimate of the
committee bill. He calls attention to the provisions
in the bill, and concludes with an expression of regret
that the president should feel justified by inuendo,
at least, in impugning the insincerity and incompetency of a committee of the house of representative..
"You have no warrant for it", says Mr. Wadsworth,
in closing.

Olympla, June 15.���State Insurance
Commissioner Sam 11. Nichols today
ordered the Mutual Reserve Life In-
Burance comrany of New York to appear before lhe commissioner ,n
Olympla July 6 and show cause why
the certificate of the company to
transact business in this state should
not be revoked. The statemenl given
out by the insurance department today was in the form of a letter datdi
January 7. addressed to the MutuVi
Reserve company at Xew York. After
quoting the insurance law of tho
slate at length and the question uf
special policl is and rebates, the commission - says.
"This department has in its possession a policy ; sued by your company to Frank R. Neiileton, which
policy has a clause or paragraph under the title 'Special dividends,' to
grant, special privileges to the insured.
''.'bis department also has iu its possession a policy issued by your company to Ralph H. Nettleton, which
policy does not contain the quote.!
special dividend' paragraph or clause.
These two policies, having been submitted to ihe attorney-general's department, are declared by him to be
in contravention of the anti-rebate law
of this state and that you are mere-
fore liable to the penalty prescribed
in the law quoted.
"Secondly, the insurance laws uf
the state require that every person
soliciting insurance in any manner
whatsoever must be licensed thereto

San Francisco, June 15.���Neither
side in the waterfront controversy
made any effort today to bring the
lie-up to an end. The committee of
Uie I'nited Shipping and Transportation association held iheir usual
meeting abord the II. J. Corcoran to
talk matters over, but had no statement to give out when they adjourned. Efforts are being made by Ihe
Pacific Coast Steamship company to
send lbe City of I'ueblo lo Seattle to

nol she would go before nightfall
and no tickets had been sold to passengers who sat aboul the ofiice expecting to go aboard.

St. Petersburg, June 13.���Disorders
aPPear to have  broken  out at Bialy-
'liis afternoon with even greater
:'l: '   than    characterized    Thursday's
"";s-    No  despatches  have  been  reeved tonight from Bialystok, where
""'    telegraph  office  is closed    but
' ' Official messages from Grodno re-;
'""''  that   the  excesses  were started J
1,1    today,   by     the  throwing    of
'""''���"il bombs. The crowds, according
0 "'esc despatches, then opened flre1
toe police, whicli  the troops re-
l'1"1 to, and there was a constant in-1
'""'���'ango    of  shots    between    Jews
"ova  their  houses,  and   the  soldier*
M" the streets.   A mob of peasants'
armed with clubs, etc., found their
away into Uie city and are now among
the rioters.
When M. Scheffel's Interpolation
was presented this afternoon, the
house accepted it unanimously with
amendments, making it urgent, and
provinding for the despatch of a parliamentary commission in BialystOB"
to investigte the affairs. A series of
speakers held the government directly responsible for the outbreak, declaring that tho anti-Jewish hatred of
the Russian masses were fiction, ex-
cepl when fomented by authorities,
and asserting that outbreaks never
occurred except on their Incitatfon or
with their connivance.
Porl Townsend, June 16,���At noon
today a reporl was received from 1he
government observer at Tatoosh
staling that the hull of tho gasoline
steam schooner Argus, which was reported to be on fire south of Cape
Flattery last night, is still burning
off the cape. The failure of the crew
lo reach the Umatilla lightship ieaves
no conclusion but that, the twelve
men on board the Argus lost their
lives ln the explosion of the gasoline
tanks, which is supposed to have set
Ihe craft afire.

Portland, Or.. June 16,���From tho
published descriptions of the skeleton found last Monday on Maury Island, John Stockman, of 769 Irving
street, this city, is positive that the
remains are those of Jack Hall, of Ar-

was traced to the Puget Sound country, where all trace of him was lost.
He has never been heard of since.
Hall was 2S years of age, of small
stature and heir to considerable property. He came west in 1894, and when
last seen in Seattle had a considerable sum of money with him. He left
Seattle with the Intention of locating

to purchase in the vicinity of the spot
where  the  remains were  found.
With   his departure   from   Seattle,

Dear Sir:���1 have your letter of

If you have any information regarding such a device I would be very
glad to receive it, and give it attention.
Yours truly,

Finding that whilst. I could get
1 lenty of promises, but no performance, from the railway officials. I
brought the matter to the attention of
Attorney-General Wilson, who said
thai if a formal complaint was made
in writing he would at. once take
steps to enforce the law. I then
made a formal complaint. I am not
Mire of the exact date but am under
the impression that it was whilst the
Jlous'e was in session In the spring
of 1904.

whether the New Westminster South-

Evidently Mr, Green discussed the
matter with ihe Attorney-General as
shortly afterwards I received the following letter:
Vancouver, B. C. 30th June, 1905.
John Oliver Esq., M. P. P.,
Delta District.
Sir:���I have been considering the
subject, of your complaint about ihe
alleged inefficiency of the cattle
guards on the New Westminster &
Southern Railway. I enclose you a
copy of a letter Mr. Gamble received
from the superintendent of thc Railway dated the 7th of May.
The duty imposed by the British
Columbia Act to construct efficient
cattle guards is not usually enforced
by the Government. Any person injured by breach of such a statutory
duty can maintain an action in the
ordinary way for damages for the injuries sustained. The only possible
way in which the Attorney-General
could move, would be by applying for
a prerogative writ of mandamus. I
1 now of no instance in which euch
an application has ever been made,
and in face of the evidence which
doubtless will be forthcoming that an
absolutely efficient cattle guard has
net yet been discovered, I am afraid
H at no good will come from applying
for the writ. The writ even if
granted, would never prescribe the
manner in which it should be carried
It is not as if it were a public
nuisance In respect whereof the Attor-
nej General could move. It is a case
of a breach of a statutory duty in
which the person Injured, as I have
already pointed out, has his remedy,
I ut I incline to the view that il is
not pan of the duty of the Attorney-
General, except in those cases where
. it public inconveniance results,
to Interfere for the purpose of enforc-
ing the performance of every duty Imposed upon an individual or a public
I  bave the honour to be Sir,
Your obedient, servant,

Future of Holy Land.
There is an old Jewish proverb���
the fruit of many a bitter disappointment���which says, "Cursed be he that
reckons the coming of the .Messiah."
Christians may not speak quite as
badly, but very often they think as
badly of those who speak about and
reckon the return of Israel to Palestine. There may be good reason) for
such thoughts, for In the past there
has been too much of "commentary"
and too little of "text" in nearly
everything tha has been written on
this subject. Mistaken notions in
other days, however, should not prevent our recognition of plain facts in
the present, and that especially as the
whole tendency of Jewish thought
and the condition of Palestine today
are extremely suggestive. Some
twenty years ago Palestine meant little to the majority of Jews. Only the
" pious in Isreal" sought to settle in
its holy cities, and living on the alms
cf their brethren, they spent their declining years in praying for a "return" that seemed as distant as ever.
Lut now all is changing. One meets
not only these sickly-looking pale-faced Pharisees, but alongside of them
the sturdy sons of hardy toil. Nearly
every year fresh colonies have been
established, till now they number
over thirty, and time is adding to
their number and extent. One-third
ef'Palestine proper is once again Jewish soil. In the district of Jufb. forty
per cent, of the land is in Jewish
hands, and in that of Tiberias not
less than seventy-five per cent., while
beyond Jordan great stretches are-
again by Jews being brought under
cultivation. So anxious are the Jews.,
te again get possession that they en-
deavour to purchase all that comes
into the market.
Then, once again, Hebrew is taking
ite place as a living tongue in Its native soil. It has never really been
dead, though people usually think so.
There has always been in every land
a remnant in Israel that would speak
nothing but Hebrew on the Sabbath,
and every century has made additions
to its literature that any people might
be proud of. Newspapers appear daily
Ir. nearly every country, whicli for
general excellence and literary style
surpass many of our own. Translations of the classics of every tongue
bave been made, and under the palms
of Jaffa, or on the sands of Caesarea,
the Hebrew boy of today can read the
adventures of Robinson Crusoe, the
intrigues of Lady Macbeth, and the
sufferings of Mary Stuart in the language of Mosos and Isaiah. It seems
exceedingly fitting that, this renaissance of the old Hebrew as a spoken
tongue, should take place in Palestine
and the fact that there is nothing
artificial about It gives it a sure hope
for the future. Circumstances beyond human control hate brought it
about. Jews from different lands
meet in Palestine, and as they have
no speech in common, save that of
their fathers, they are forced to use
it. It is becoming also a unifying
element���abolishing distinctions of
country, and especially the differ
euces between the Ashkenazim and
Sephardim���two sections of the people that in the past have not loved
one another. The movement, gathers
strength as the years pass. Hebrew
once again appears on Jewish coins,
and Hebrew school-books are published in Jerusalem as good for their own
tongue as Nelson's Royal Readers are
for ours. THE DAILY NEWS

SATURDAY.   JUNE   16.   190G.
We give space today to a communication from Mr. Oliver, M. P. P.,   on
thc subjeel of the placing of efficient
ci    le guards on rallwaj lines in Sur-
r< y.     'i'be letter is a history of the
case and seems to cover tin   ground
pretty fully.     The occasion of the letter, it will be understood, is the petition mentioned therein, and    the   re- I
port which is circulated with the said
petition.    Mr.    Oliver's    political    op-
onenta  show   how  hard   up  they  are
foi- material to use against him when
thej   have resorted to this expedient.!
lb   lias no difficulty in showing that'
tin blame rests entirely with the gov-!
eminent at .lames Hay.
Tho News-Advertiser expresses      a
\. it emphatic opinion that there will
I i no general election this year. The
ii untry is prosperous, if declares, the
p..(M.le are dead in love wilh the gov-!
i  i.uient;   another year  will  increase
lbe warmth of their    a!lection.        "It.
ut uld   be   a   dull   and   stupid   govern- .
Lieut," declares the    News-Advertiser,
thai  Would  bring on an    election    in
such  circumstances.    Hut   the  News-
Advertiser does noi say in   so   many
words   that    tlie   election   will   not   be
brougfg on.      Now the .News-Advertiser  is  owned  and  edited,    or    at    all
i. wins edited,  by  the    man    who    is
1 lesidenl   of  the    executive    council,
and who carries a large proportion of
tie  brains of  ihe government  under
Lis own   hal.      The  public  know all
that, and   therefore  when   the  News-
Advertiser ridicules tbe idea   that   a
general election is to be    held    this
year,  people  will  say  that   it. speaks
by  the  book  and  that   its  statement
ought   to   settle   the   question.       Hut
it does not make the statement.     It
simply    argues,    as    any    newspaper
might argue, ihat there is no immediate likelihood of an election.   Neither
thc- governmenl nor any member of it
is committed by the utterances of the
paper, and as it would be very easy,
and not  without precedent., to make a
statement which would   commit   the
government, the inference is that the
government is contemplating tlie dissolution of the House and a general
election, and is alarmed by the signs
of activity on the part, of the opposition;  and that  this article    In   the
News-Advertiser  is intended    to    lull
the  public  into a  false  security,    so
that  tin.  government   may  have the
better chance lo steal a verdict again
a.- il did by the disreputable trick it
1 I.i..cii  in   1903.    on  that   occasion, it
t'xed ibe dati   of ihe elei 'ton in the
mosl   formal  and official  way;   then,
al the lasi ]iossibie moment, cancelled
ib.ai   and   brought   on  the  election a
month  earlier.    It   wj.s    as    dirty    ft
i'u ce nf political   treachery   as   the
annals of Canada hold, and the government   which  was guilty of it may
be trusted to live up to its record in
that  matter if it  sees any chance of
snatching an advantage by so    doing.
Therefore,    this    invitation    of    the
News-Advertiser to the opposition to
please  go  to  sleep  might  better be
disregarded,   Organization   and   education are always in order,   and work
along those lines will not be lost, even
if the government does decide that a
few   more  months  of  certain  enjoyment of the riesh pots are, io be preferred to the very doubtful chance ot
holding its own at a general election.

quested all present to take the oath,

nothing but the truth. Apparently he
knew what was expected of him, for
he Immediately Informed the council
that he had noi tampered with that
particular valve, and that anyone who
would do so, was a fit subject for a 1
lunatic asylum or ihe penitentiary.
A< soon as Mr. Ankers could be Induced to remain silent for a momenC j
Mr. Blackburn was called in, and a
few questions were put to bim, which
he briefly aaswere 1. He informed the |
aldermen thai bo had found the valve
closed, but did not remember the
dale. Mr. Ankers volunteered to supply them wiih the date, if they would
allow him to ask a Eew questions, as
he remebered most of the things that
had happened recently, ns he had been
doing a lot of thinking since he had
heard that they intended to bring this
charge against him.
Quite Familiar.
The mayor took objection to this,
and informed him that there was no
charge against him, but Ankers insisted thai it looked very much like
i like a put up job. Objection was
taken to his language, and upon
promising to tone down his speech a
I trifle, he was permitted to resume his
inquiries, in the course of which he
referred to the superintendent as
Stott, and called Aid. Adams George.
By the use of maps and charts he endeavored to prove that it was a physical impossibility for him to have left
that particular valve closed.

After handing the charts round to
all the aldermen Mr. Ankers became
confused as to who was chairman, and
upon being requested to address the
chair, he remarked: "Well, who'se the
chair? That fellow?" pointing to Aid.

taki n, lie tried the next alderman, and

different places where safety valves
were located, until requested by the
mayor to cut his remarks short, as
they could not be there all night.

condescended to allow the mayor to

Following up Mr. Gamble's reporl I
received  the following from the Attorney-General's department.
Attorney-General's Office,
Victoria, August   llth, 1905.
John Oliver, Esq., M. P. P.
Bayside Farm,
Delta P. O.. B. C.
Sir:���I have been instructed by the
Honourable the Attorney-General to
advise you thai unless cattle guards
satisfactory to the Chief Engineer of
the Public Works Department, are installed along the line of the New
Westminster Southern Railway in this
I rovince before the sittings of the
1 ' ��� of Assize for the Country of
Westminster, which will be held in
October next, a bill of indictment
dealing with the matter will he preferred to the Grand Jury of Westminster
I have the honour to be. Sir,
Your obedient servant.
Deputy Attorney-General.
I certainly thought that success
had crowned my efforts. Here was a
straight definite statement; nothing
ambigious. I constantly made en-
enquiries if the railway company were
making the necessary improvements,
my information being always of a
negative character. So as to leave
i.o possibility of a mistake the week
previous to the opening of the Assize
in October I personally inspected a
few miles of- the railway and drove
my horse and cart over several of the
so called cattle guards turning on
the line and driving over the guards
back again; in fact. I did not see a
single guard that, I could not drive
ever without difficulty.
1 immediately communicated with
Hon. Mr. Wilson by 'phone, informing
him of the existing conditions and
asking him to make good lhe promise
contained in his letter, Mr. Wilson
informed me that he was about to i
leave for England and referred me to
Ids deputy. 1 then went to Vancouver and met the Deputy Attorney-Gen- '
oral who refused to prefer an indictment as promised saying that the
railway company must be given time,
ond thai If they did nol ad they could
be indicted nexl Assizes (the next
Izi ha ��� cine - and gone and no
Indictment made and no cattle guards
either). Being determined to leave
nothing undone to secure redress of
this grievence, under which my con-
Btitutents had been suffering tor so
many vats. 1 had an affadavil drawn
up and Bworn to setting out the pf'in-
(Ipal facte in the matter.
This affidavit was placed before he ,
Grand Jury for Westminster Comity
al the time ot the Assizes last October, while the Grand Jury on account;
o. not knowing just wlv.it their power
v. as'dhl net order an Indictment to be
preferred; they did bring the matter
to the attention Of the Chief Justice,
v ho Informed them that their findings would be presented to the proper
quarter, i. c to the government of
the day. 1 am moved to make lhis
statement on account of the petition
and reports first mentioned and also
bi cause 1 think it only justice to myself and the public at large that they
should he Informed of the facts. And
I wish to ask the electors concerned
in this matter whether in view of
these facts and the worse than neglect of the government, they are going to he satisfied with the privilege
oT appending their signatures to a
petition humbly praying for the protection guaranteed to life and property by the statute laws of the province
and which protection has so ruthlessly been withheld from them by the
present so-called administrtalon.

pork, and are open to buying all they
can  get   for  the  next   few   weeks.
Among tne dalrj produce, butter
fetched 25c a pound, while eggs were
very scare, what few were 0u the
market being quickly bought by the
wholesalers at 25c a dozen. The demand was very brisk.
Chickens were in good demand,
with a fair supply, ducks were rather
scarce and were quickly snapped up.
The fruit season is not very well advanced yet, and the recent rains have
proved a set back iii many cases.
Strawberries were very scarce, bringing $2.50 a crate. Gooseberries were
a little more pletniful, and 5c a quart
was easily obtained. A few cherries
were offered, the best specimens
bringing from 10c to 12c a pound,
while the preserving fruil fetched
from lie to 7c a pound. Fruit will bo
plentiful from now on.
One of the stalls was taken yesterday by an aluminum novelty mer-
chant, who had come from Vancouver
for the purpose of disposing of his
wares, but he did not. meet with much
success, having chosen a day when
the market was none too brisk, and
he was none too well satisfied with
the  result  of his day's work.
