The report made by Dr, C. J Fagan
in reference to the outbreak ol tj
j.iio'ul fever In ibis ciiy has lie 'n re
. alved by the city council.
The document i.s a very lengthy one,
.'..ri.nu some thirteen pages of type-
. I il UIR.
li opens wi li ;i few general remarks
on typhoid, pointing out thai it does
not develop spontaneously, bul origl
nates In ich case from .some antecedent case through a special microorganism, the bacillus typhosus,
The re lort then proceeds to deal
with statistics of deaths occurlng
from typhoid in peace and war, and
refers especially to the freedom of the
Japanese army '.run t: la disease In
the recent war.
The ease with which the disease
nay be spread is 3hown.
The life of the typhoid germ outside the body is next taken up.
It is then pointed out typhoid lever
may be conveyed in four ways, by con-
laglon, by infection of food, by cou-
liiiniuation of the soil, anel by contaminated water.
In reference to contmlnatlon of the
SOU, Dr. Fagan quoted from Sir William Osier, the best known authority
in America, as follows: "Imperfect
sewage and contaminated water-supply are two special conditions favoring the distribution of the bacilli;
tilth, overcrowding, and i.a<l ventilation ;ire accessories In lowering the
resistance of the Individuals exposed.
While from an Infected person the
disease maj be spread bj fingers, food
and flies.' And in another place the
in'  authority    says:     "Filth,    bad

_���   to the pasl and presenl conditions.
The C'iiy of New Westminster own
the water rights of the lake.    Some;
years ago. leave  was  granted  to an
il.'ciric railway company to dam the
Coquitlam river aboul  three quarters
of a mile below iis exll from the lake,
ond at a polni Immediately below the
city Intake pipe.   The result of the
building of the dam was the general,
rtising of the lake's Burface some six1
or elghl feet.
The lirsi point I visited was the site
of a saw mill on the Coquitlam river,'
and some few hundred yards above
the city Intake pipe. The place was
clean, but I could not gel any history
a. to the disposal Of the refuse neces-.
sarily resulting from the presence of
11 number of men. The city authorities would have been wise to have
[.revented the erection of ibis mill,
snd, if ii could uot be prevented, then
Lhe Intake pipe should have been

Father Fraser is always ready with an j
adequate supply of the necessary element  and there is also lois ot  room
for a rowing club which could affiliate
with the proposed  orpin'< at lon.    The'
present  year  bids fair  to  be a most
favorable one for aquatic sports as the

Westminster Iron Work:
Ince. This model is fastened in front
with tli.y buttons and buttonholes, but
if desired small buttonholes may be
worked near the edge of the waist,
through which to run nnrrow ribbon,
or, again, a fine luce beading may be
placed below the laee edging Instead of
the tucks. Quite evidently, however,
this model Is not intended for ribbon
trimming, It should he fitted the correct size nbout the waist, the material
being drawn luto the duster of tucks
In the center, so us to keep all the fullness well forward. Pour medallions of
the Valenciennes lace trim each sidu of
the front of the cover. The laee edging
about the hem of the waist Is not absolutely necessary, but It certainly mokes
an attractive finish ami requires but
little laeo.
Good Things to Know,
Don't hang skirts wrong side sut
when putting them away. They sre
bound to crease, and with light ones
whatever dust has been collected by
tho lining and clung in spite of your
brushing is bound to sift through to
the right side ami stie'k.
Blue linings for the bureau drawers
or shirt waist boxes in which you store
your prettiest blouses keep them more
daintily white. Sleeve linings may
take the form of tissue paper or of
plain cotton stuffs, which are laid first
in the drawer and folded over the pilo
of white clothes, or tufloel puds, with
some delicate, subtle perfume Introduced into tbe cotton filling, fill the
need In a fashion which is much prettier und cost bnt a trifle more.
White dresses, no matter of what
material or what quality, Invariably
show a tendency to yellow, some even
to darken, when laid or hung awny.
Bugs of blue muslin or silesla���any Inexpensive cotton stuff which Is made
of a color that doesn't "crock"���should
be made big nnd louse enough to slip
over a skirt or dress If It is one of the
. new prlueess stvles.

'Who   is   the   active
SI, iiiliinl Oil company?"
i e y General  Hadley,
"There is no master mind In the
Standard Oil company," replied Mr.
Archliolel. raising his voice. "Il Is
made up e,r an aggregation of Individuals."
The business is controlled by men,
experts in their respective departments, he said, and the term committee as applied to the various departments is a misnomer, H. M. TJlford,
Mr. Archbold thought, is the principal
Individual In the domestic trades and
he has been connected with the Standard Oil company since- 1 s7">.
Asked concerning the stock of the
Waters-Pierce Oil company, now In
the name of Mr. Van Buren, Mr. Archbold said it was the 2,T"iii shares formerly held in the names of the Standard Oil trustees.
"Are you familiar with the produc-
i tion of oil in this country," asked At
I torney-Generu!  Hadley.
"I am."
"What Is It?"
"The dally production of crude oil
In the I'nited States Is about 350,000,-
000 gallons, and the Standard Oil produces about one-seventh."
"And about  the refined product?"
"Tiie Standard Oil probably sells-
and markets about 70 per cent of It,
and I want to add," continued Mr.
Archbold, "that wherever there Is a
Standard Oil refinery in the United
States there Is a competitive refinery
iu that section. There Is a great deal
of competition in the oil business. The
competition, of course, is greatest in
lhe  big oil  region of Pennsylvania."
Attorney-General Hadley asked Mr.
Archbold concerning the men who
composed the various hoards of directors of the Standard Oil company, including Francis D. Carley, Col. William T. Thompson, Horace D. Hut-
chins, D. S. Cowles, and H. M. Ttlford..
These men had all been at one or an-
olher time connected with the Standard Oil company, probably, however,
about 1S78.
"Who composed the original board
of directors of the Standard Oil company under the original trust agree-
ment?" asked Mr. Hadley.
"John D. Rockefeller, Charles Pratt,.
William E, Worden, H. M, Brewster,
.1 a. Bostwick, 0. ll. Payne and myself."
Mr. Archbold said that he knew R.
P, Tinsley nnil that he is connected
with the Waters-Pierce Oil company.
Bul tlu' witness had never heard him
designated iis an agenl nor had he
, \��-i- beard of Walter Jennings as an
agent. The witness believed Tinsley
ii'ii the' Waters-Pierce company to go
wiib the Standard OU company, and
now Is on his way to Japan.
"He left for Spain about the time
or a little after lhis suit was Instituted last summer, did he not?" asked
Mi.  lleilley.
"Mr. I.indley's departure had no-
Lhlng to do with the suit," answered
Mr.   Archbold.    "Absolutely  uothlng."
"I am not suggesting that," rejoined
Mr. Hadley. "I am asking when he
left   for Spain."
"I think lt was some time last summer, but I do not recall the exact
Wade Hamilton testified in the Missouri ouster proceedings today as general auditor of tho Standard Oil, that
he sent men from his office to St,
Louis to audit tho account of the
Waters-Pierce Oil company.
During the time this audit was being made, ho said, the men were In
the pay of the Waters-Pierce company.
