UTTERS PROTEST
WITH LAST BREATH
Gondemned Man's   Cry   of   Injustice   Is   Stilled   By   the
Springing of Gallows Trap in Prison Yard
At Walla Walla.
Last Tuesday, the dredge being about to proceed
'. hilliwack to attend to some work which can be
p stp ned f. r a time without damage to the public
interest, a telegram was sent to the member for the
district, J. B. Kennedy, M.P.. urging that the boat
be put to work at once on a part of tlie channel below
this city where the depth of water is not sufficient for
deep draught ships, except at high tide.
Promptly orders came back from Ottawa in accordance with the request.
Wednesday morning, the Daily News made a
brief statement to the above effect.
Thursday evening (only a day and a half behind,
which was good time for it) the Columbian published
the news about the change in plans for the dredge,
revamped a lot of last month's news by way of padding, and stated that the change in orders resulted
from ;. '.'.'.-.'gram sent by the Board of Trade to " Ottawa" leaving the inference that the departmenl
had been directly addressed and had taken action on
the telegram, ar.d that Mr. Kennedy knew nothing
about it
In fact the Columbian went on to sneer at Mr.
Kennedy and to insinuate that this paper had been
guilty of falsehood in the statement it made.
The News does not insinuate. It states directly
that the assertion of the Columbian that the Board of
Trade sen: a dispatch about this matter to Ottawa,
was a wilful, deliberate, and malicious falsehood; and
it repeats that the telegram sent, whieh was from the
pilot board, was addressed **J, B. Kennedy. M.P..
Ottawa."
The Daily News has the assurance of Mr. White,
secretary, and of Mr. Curtis, president, oi the Board
of Trade, that no such telegram as that spoken of by
the Columbian was sent.

yesterday afternoon to the effect thai
the organization of U���� company
which proposes to manufacture wood-.
di pipe in ihis city has been completed and thai within BlxtJ days from
date construction of the factory will
in  commenced,
The new industry will be located in
the west end of the cltj convenient to
C. P. K . and Q, N. U.. tracks and with
access to the wtilerl'rout.
lt is expected that the manufacture }
it pipe will be commenced not later
than Jan. 1. 1907, and there are at
present prospects of sufficient orders
to keep the mill running day and nighl
at full capacity for many months.
This will require the employment of
ahout fiftj men mosi of whom will be
well paid artisans.
The lirsi work the company figures
on doing will be the turning oul  of
fifty miles of pipe lo carry out lhe
si heme to supply lhe muuicipalil ies Of
Delta and Richmond with water from
Gold creek the record I'or whieh was
secured   by   Mayor   Keary   some   days
ago.
The proposed main route of the pipe
line win be through Coquitlam municipality and the Citj Of New Westminster   to   Lulu   Island   and    along    the
Island to Steveston. This will require
3C miles of pipe while 20 miles will be
n guired  for  the  branch  lines  to  r I
all the main parts nf lhe municipalities of Helta, and Richmond, making a
trial  of fifty  mile*.
Arrangements   tor the   supply   of
these municipalities have nol yel been
'ompleted, bul negotiations have progressed   so  favorably   thai     Ihere    Is
very  prospeel  Of the deals boon satisfactorily concluded al tin early dale.

members of his congregation. Ai this
time he was curate of Holy Trinity
Cathedral, under lhe Rlghl Rev. A. w.
Slllltoe, who undertook the mission
work in addition to his other duties.
So successful was ihe new departure that ii w:is decided to build a
church, and in September of the same
year, the Mission iliureb was built
at the corner of Napanee and Tenth
streets. This building filled a long
fell wan:, and well attended irom the
ervices, I he residents ill tba'

Cow nn remained in charge of the parish until 1899, and during the seven
years of his rectorship, the church

Boys' Brigade.
Anothei' important adjunct of St.
Barnaba's church is the Boy's Brigade, of which Capt. Otway Wilkie
and Lieut. Malins are the officers,
while the Rev. C. W. Houghton fills
the post of chaplain und secretary
treasurer. The brigade was organized
si vera!  years ago,  but  of late years
the church had to be enlarged toi ;, has made great strides, and at the

November 9, 1892, and the event  was   the May Day celebration held a few
celebrated by a grand entertainment
and tea, at which leading local amateurs took part. It was found necessary to enlarge the parish room eight
.'eats later, and this was accordingly
done at t\ cost of $300. The room was
also much Improved upon ibis occasion.
On Easter Day. 1899, the Rev. A.
Silva-White was inducted rector, and
remained in that position for four
years, resigning when he accepted the
post of curate of St. Lukes, Toronto.
During his term of office the church
was again enlarged by the addition
ol a chancel, which the Sunday School
enriched by the gift of ihree double
lancet Cathedral glass windows.
The church yvas formally consecrated by the bishop on October .11,
1900, when the former rector, Rev. ll.
L. Cowan, pre ached both morning
and evening. The church was crowded at both services, which were of a
verj impressive character, and closely
tollovi - d bj  the whole congregation.
The building of a driving shed in
L'Ul bj the members of the church
liv Ing a Burnabj, under the direct lon
of li. R, Hill, prove I to be a great
boon to those living at a distance,and
has since always been well patronized
more especially by the church members of the Burnahy district. In the
following  year,    the     rectory
weeks ago, they won for the second
P.me the cup offered for competition
between the Vancouver, Nanaimo and
New West minster Boy's Brigades. On
this last occasion, lhe Vancouver
brigade did not compete, having evidently made up their mind that they
would nol win In any event, as Ihey
had been outclassed last year in the
lb-ill  competition.
Debt Wiped Out.
The church is in a healthy financial
Condition, and the loan on the rectory
will  be  wiped  out   short ly, when  the
parish will be free from debt.
This happy state of things was the
which   resull of the present rector taking up
Btauds alongside the church was built,
and the grounds improved, it being
arranged to secure a loan on the

The unanimous opinion of those
'������ 1 'i attended the Gr< ater Norris <&
Rowe circus  yesterday  seems  to be
1 ii.tt it was a good show and well eon-
ducted. Certain ii Is that unusual
courtesy was shown patrons all the
way from the ticket wagon to the big
show. Another excellent thing was
was noted; there were no games of
chance of any kind whatever on Uie
grounds and the only monej one
could Bpend was I'or the side-show;
i Ig show, red lemonade and peanuts.
This fi-.it ure alone deserves commendation. Beginning at the front of
the series of tents, the outside exhibition was very fair. To anyone who
likes freaks of nature, odd curiosities;
big snakes and the manifold wonders
ei the circus side-show, they could
bc well entertained In the annex of
the Norris & Rowe circus. The menagerie was a.s complete as one could
well expect with a traveling aggregation. It contained :1 elephants, 2
a mas, a score of camels, big dromedaries, deer, elk, sealions. 3 lions. 2
tigers, hyenas, bears, kangaroos,
leopards, tapirs, pumas, etc.
The big show proved quite a revel-
taion even to tin,so who know the excellent reputation of Norris & Rowe.
Edna .Maretta did Bomersaults on the
jareback of a running horse; Frank
ond Dolly Miller, in a two horse carrying act; EM. Hocum, principal rider,
.Miss Annie Morton in a menage act;
Evie Stetson and her high school
horses; Janet Melville, bare-back rider proved sonic of the more notable
oi the equestrians and equestriennes;
tin greal Stirk troupe of cyclists and
mid-air performers, the beautiful
groupings of marble statuary and reproductions of famous paintings by
the Parisian living models; Rose
Maretta on the balancing trapeze;
Miss Irene on the swinging ladder;
Lucier on the giant golden ladder; the
Sugimoto Japanese troupe of 10 male
and female performers; the remarkable act of the lour Picard Bros, on
the aerial horozontal liars; Martin
ituf 1 Crouch on the comedy acrobats
stage, etc., were some of the more
prominent acts In over a hundred offered. There were a number of good
trained animal acts, elephants, hears
and bloodhounds, sea-lions, camels,
llamas and dromedaries broken to
harness; a long and nigh leaping contest by trained athletes over the
hacks of the larger animals; cake-
walking by Arabian Stallions; hippodrome races; a grand tournamenl and
entry and last bul not least a corps
of actually amusing clowns. If any
person attending yesterday's exhiui-
tion pf the Norris & Rowe circus
could honestly say they did not get
their money's worth and more, then
they aro indeed hard to please.

Mysterious Shooting,
i Edmonton, Alta., June S.���Mystery
i surrounds the finding of a man giving
his name as Carl Meyer of Balgonie,
Sask., in the bush west of this city.
He was discovered in an exhausted
rendition by surveyors, with two bullet-holes below the heart and a revolver in his hand. According to his own
statement he was shot by an unknown
person, and after lying at the point
of death for two days, attempted to
eud his life, and fired the second shot
himself without success. A sum of
money on his person shows that robbery had no part In the deed. Only

e  men  irom  all  parts
u!   the  district,  to  discuss  lhe matter
of river conservancy and channel Improvement, Certain resolutions were
passed which were duly forwarded to
Mr. Kennedy, M. P., and by him presented to tiie department of public
works. When ihe reply of the department was received, a second meeting
was held, ai which a letter was drawn
uii, addressed to Mr. Kennedy, in
which strong ground wtis taken as to
I lie necessity for work along the lines
indicated in the resolutions. This letter Mr. Kennedy duly submitted to
the department, and from that time
to ibis he has been pressing the matter upon lhe attention of the Minister.
Roth meetings were absolutely non-
political. Men prominent in both
political parties were working cordially together to secure the proper carrying on of work which is of paramount Importance to New Westminster,  city  and district.
Last Tuesday, a telegram about a
special matter in connection with the
movement w^s sent to Mr. Kennedy,
asking that certain orders be given,
and iu a lew hours, the orders were
ii reived. The telegram, which was
signed by ihe chairman of the pilot!
hoard, is as follows:
"New Westminster, June 5,  1906.
M. B. Kennedy, M. P.
"Ottawa.
"Dredge going to Chilliwack.   Very
important    should      work    Annieville
bar.     Big    steamer    left     yesterdaj.
Another coming this week.
"(Signed.)
"J. (.'. ARMSTRONG.''
As has been stated, orders to the
dredge to go to work on Annieville
btir came back at once, showing that
Mr. Kennedy had been prompt to "get
his work in," and in a brief notice of
lhe incident, the Daily News gave Mr.
Kennedy credit for his promptness.
With much less promptness���it took
about thirty hours���the Columbian
cooked a yarn, the Intention of which
was lo lead people lo believe thai lhe
member had nothing to do with the
matter���that it had all been arranged
' over liis head;" and in ihai. yarn, the
verj pivot of it in fact, is the Btate-
menl that Uie Hoard of Trade .sent a
dispatch about the mailer "to Ottawa," and that the order came as a
response to that dispatch.
As stated elsewhere, both the president and the secretarj ot the Hoard of
r| fade deny that any such dispatch
was sent.
Now, in one sense, this is a very
mall matter a mere venting of personal spite of the editor oi the Columbian againsl a political opponent; but
It has another side, i'he proper carrying out of the work of river conservancy and channel Improvement is a
mailer of enormous Importance bo ihe
business Interests of the whole con.
Btituency, and is something which
should be kept entirely apart front all
contact with partisan politics. 'I'he
ib partments of public works and marine are besieged wiih applications
'.oi such work and we require all the
force and Influence which united, non-
partisan action can give us in order
to impress upon the .Ministers that our
case is noi (as it has been represented) a mere hunt I'or increased expenditure, bin a matter ol vital im-
port ance to the counl ry; and it is
scandalous that the highest interests
<>i ihe whole community should be
prejudiced by the cantankerous tern-
1 er of one individual.
BASIC   PRINCIPLES.
The following statemenl of the principles of democracy, which we clip
from an American paper, will be of interest to the student of scientific
I o'.itics.
The two great democratic general
principles were and are and always
will be;
First, Equal opportunity for all,
special privileges to none.
Second, That government is best
which governs least���that is to say,
which interferes the least with individual liberty.
From the second of these two principles come two others:
(a) That every man, so long as
he is peaceable and does not invade
the equal rights of others, has an inalienable right to regulate his own
affairs, his habits, his pleasures,
religion, and all other tilings belonging to bis own life, and for even a
majority of his fellow citizens to deprive him of this right is as much a
tyranny as if it were ihe act of a
despot.
(b) That, each locality must be left
lo regulate its own affairs, not interfered with by the general government.
Thus it will be seen that if a man
be truly a democrat, be must attack
every special privilege and try to give
ar equal opportunity to all.

SIDE-LIGHTS ON  RAILWAY RATES
At a recent meeting of lhe Committee on Agriculture at Ottawa Mr.
Gordon, M.P., gave evidence as to
railway rates which in one respect
was a tribute to the usefulness of the
Railway Commission, and in another
suggested a direction in which the
commission might act. The rates
on live stock and grain from points
iti Ontario to the seaboard have been
j materially reduced, the reductions
averaging from $3 to $10.50 per car.
The reductions have already had the
effect of increasing the returns which
the Ontario farmer gets for his products. Before the reductions were
made Chicago prices for wheat, oats,
and live stock invariably ruled higher
than those in Ontario. Xow the reverse is the case. At the present
tune live hogs tire fully 75 cents per
hundred higher in Ontario than in
Chicago.
This part of Mr. Gordon's evidence
v.as most satisfactory. The other feature of transportation with which he
dealt, however, leaves something to
be desired. He pointed out the discrepancy between the rates on east-
bound and west-bound produce. The
rate on wheat from Calgary to St.
.lohn, X. B., Montreal, or Portland, is
Hi 1-2 cents per hundred pounds. But
the rate to Calgary on beans from the
counties of Kent, Essex, Elgin, and
Lambton, where it is as important a
crop io the farmer as wheat is to the
Northwest Earmer, is lis cents a hundredweight. It is, of course, prohibitive, especially as the rate from Tacoma or San Francisco is 54 cents.
This is all the more inexplicable bc-
c.inse ii would be thoughl thai to
equalize ihe bulk of east-bound and
west-bound traffic rales on the latter
would i'e pul at a figure '.hat woul!
tend to encourage It. Instead of that
ihe rate is prohibitive, and cars go
buck    empty  thai   might  l��
something hauling beans ami pr ot-
iug Interprovlnclal trade. The same
conditions prevail witli regard to bar-
lej and malt. Under existing conditions ibe farmer in Manitoba cannot
grow barley and ship to the coast, nor
(an the Ontario farmer ship his bar-
lev to Ilie west. The railways, Mr.
Cordon said, when these facts are
pointed out to them, plead that uie
duty on soft coal adds enormously to
the cost of railway operation, and materially prevents them from lowering
iheir rates.���Globe, Toronto.

HOP GROWING PROVES
PAYING INVESTMENT
Successful   Farmer  Talks  on   Manner
in   Whicii   the. Crop   Is
Handled.
picking season. In years gone by,
Indians used to do the work, bul of
I to years, they have been supplanted
b; white men, as Mr. Wilson draws
the color line and does not employ
Chinamen or Hindoos around his
place.
. . !.. U'ii.-i u. ::. widely known hop
grower ol South Aldergrove, was in
thi citj yesterday, and registered at
the Depot Hotel. In a conversation
a Daily News reporter, he gave
b me interesting particulars about the
hop growing industry In which he 1ms
been so long and successfully engaged.
It was away back In 1885 tha Mr.
Wilson first commenced the business
of growing hops for the Eastern markets, al a time when the cultivation of
this plant was attracting a good deal
ol attention. Many farmers took
kindly to the new industry, but before many years, they found that it
ri quired a greater amount of capital
than they possessed to successfully
operate a hop farm, and one alter another Ihey retired from the field, lhe
majority of them going broke in trying  to  retrieve  their  first   losses.
Being possessed of Bufficienl capital
it, the firsl place. .Mr. Wilson was
aide lo put his farm on a paying basis
Itout the start, and to tide over lhe
! ad years thai sometimes came his
way, At the presenl time, he is in tee
proud position of having a farm ot
160 acres, of which 75 acres are devoted to ihe cultivation of ihe hop plant.
lie has also buildings on the land
valued al over $3000, and docs a considerable amounl of mixed farming in
addition to bis principal business of
cultivating bops.
To Mr. Wilson also belongs the honor of being the firsl man in the province io make use ot' Incubators in
tii" chicken raising industry. This
v.as aboul sixteen .oars ago, and lie
has raised poultry for the markel ever
since.
On the average aboul six tons of
hops are shipped from his farm every
year, and these all have to be picked
it. from ton days io two weeks, the
hops gelling ripe about the middle
( : September. If the picking is not
.'one immediately, the hops are spoil-
id, so that all arrangements for ihe
handling of the crop must be made beforehand. In the twenty-one years
ib,ting which bo litis been in the
business, Mr. Wilson has never expi rienced any difficulty ir. the gathering of his crop, and the only time
when be lost pail of the year's liar-
vest was in 1891, when a ship on
which be had consigned a large
quantity of bops to the English markel was wrecked on the Irish coasl.
About $2iiiiu worth of good hops tire
'still lying at the bottom of the Irish
sea, and Mr. Wilson is poorer by thai
sum.
lite chief markets foi- the hops are
Montreal, Toronto and London, England. Prices var.\ considerably, the
average on ibis side running anywhere irom 10c to 50c a. pound in lbe
same year, according to the quantity
ol the supply. The stale of the Kent
hopfields in England is .an important
factor in deciding the price, ns if the
eiop is small there, ihere is a greater demand from the growers on the
Pacific coast, and consequently belter prices, When hops are exported
io England, they are made up in 200
pound bales, and are sold on the
London market by the hundredweight,
ihe price running from 60s to t!7s
pei (wi. The rates charged for transportation are very high, and lhe insurance is also exorbitant, so ihat unless prices are fairly high in England,
ihe growers prefer to sell to the Canadian merchants, 'lbe report of the
condition of tlu.' Kent hopfields has
liol yet reached Mr. Wilson for this
J i ar, but in Ibis locality, the crop
promises to be a good one.
Hop farms are plentiful in Oregon,
California and Washington, but in
I.t Itlsh Columbia, with ihe exception
of a lew places along the Fraser River
an i in tbe valli y of the Squamlsh,
the soil is not adapted for ib" cultivation ol' hops. At Chilliwack, Agassiz
ard Vancouver Island, bops aro raised successfully. Mr. Wilson supplied
the roots I'or al] these places when
Ihey were first started, lull of bite
years, the growerB bave used roots
from their own stock. Tin. hop
growers from across tbe border are
; ble to undersell the Canadian growers, even after paying tile duly of (',(���
ti   pound.
Another grievance thai the British
Columbia growers have against lhe
Americans is thai a firm of San Frafl-
i iseo merchants have boughl all the
crops   iii   tbe   province   I'or   a   number
of years. Mr. Wilson said that with
ibe exception of bis own place, he
believed that thej had secured all the
bops grown in iho province for lhe
next live years. The eastern merchants tire blamed for Ibis as they aid
nol  deal fairly wiih lhe growers.
���Mr. Wilson's farm is ahout 20 miles
('ul on lhe Vale foad, just inside the
boundary line, and he slates thai his
pay roll amounts to over .finiiti per
annum for ihe bop cultivation, some
forty mett being employed during the
Collision Blocks Traffic.
Salem, Mass.. .lime 8.���Through
traffic on the Manchester and Lawrence division of the Boston & Maine
Railroad was blocked pan of ihe afternoon and evening by a collision of
.t southbound treignt train and a
gravel train near here. Xo person
v.as injured. Sixteen gravel cars were
piled ti]), and it took ihe wrecking
crews a long time to clear away ihe
mass.

Montreal, June 8.���Fourteen thousand i ous of steel rails for the Midway
& Vernon Railway has just been or-
dered, and ibe continuation of con-
struction of this railway is to be
started within a very short time, according to Information secured in this
city and New- York, where the capital
behind the road comes from.
The rails have been ordered from
the Dominion Iron & Steel Company
of Sydney, Cape Breton, and the order
will be rushed out as soon as the
v orks can commence on it.
It is understood that the rails will
be shipped across the continent over
��� the C. P. R. in preference to transportation around the Horn, because of
the desirability of saving time.
Since the decision in favor of the

WASHINGTON FARMERS
REPUDIATE PACKERS
The easy victories which the Senior
lacrosse   team   of   New   Westminster
fas been wining have proved too much
���or Ilie spirits of lhe doughty veterans
who upheld the honor of the Royal
City a few years ago, and the result
has been that a challenge has been
issued by Bob Cheync, the captain of
the veterans, and two teams are to
clash next Wednesday at Queen's Park
when the 190(1 senion lacrosse team
will be given valuable pointers as to
ihe way the game is now played.
The fact thai several of the veteran
players have not handled a stick for
a few years past is no deterrent, and
the refusal of several of them to turn
out to practice does not dampen the
ardor of captain who is as sanguine
cf victory as he ever was in the days
when his team was in its prime. That
lbe presenl team is badly frightened
is clear from lbe fact that they are
practicing hard every night until long
after ihe sun has set, and the scien-
ttl'lic tactics which they are mastering are intended to puzzle the one
time invincible heroes of the Pacific
coast.
The news that Tommy Gifford and
George Rennle will play against them
was hard a blow lo the veterans, as
they consider that the Seniors should
lean these two players to them .for
lids occasion, but their rivals object
and insist on lhe two stars remaining  in  their company.
Tbe teams will probably line up in
lbe  following order
Veterans���Goal, R. Cheyne; point,
A. W. Gray; cover point, Barlow Galbraith; defence field, Charlie Snell,
