More Acute   and  Threatens   to   Stimulate
Revolution -Money Market Shows
Signs of Panic.
St. Petersburg, July 20.���A high
placed personage In conversation with
the correspondent of the Associated
Press today made no attempt to con-
seal the gravity of the silnation. He
"Everything may depend upon today's Sitting of the lower house of
parliament. If no step is taken to
avoid a conflict witli the government
the sequel may be tragic."
Opinion of Leaders.
At the Tauride Palace today a pes-
simistic feeling was prevalent, hut
the leaders generally did not believe
ihat the government, would dare tu
attempt a dissolution of parliament.
At the opening of the session of ihe
awer house the question of the publication sif parliament's address to the
country was allowed to go over until
Resolution   Accusing   Government.
The house then adopted a resolution on the Bubjecl of the Bilaystok
��� ussacre, demanding the prosecution
of the military and police officials involved, irrespective t>f rank. The res-
oiu tion, which constitutes a strongly
worded Indictment id' the general government, which is held responsible
for the secret propoganda inciting
class  against   class,  says:
"Realizing its powerlessnesa tosup-
press the revolutionary movement, 'he
government attempts to Burpress it
by inciting sine portion  of the popu-
tion against Hie other especial',) - -
lecting  the   Jews   as   victims."
The resolution concludes with another expression of distrust of the
ministry and a demand for its resignation.
Council of  Reactionaries.
The Bourse Qazette says tha' an
extraordinary council is sitting this
afternoon at Peterhoff with Gen. Count
Ignatieff, the noted reactionary; M.
Pobtedonoetseff, Conner procurator-
general of the holy synod; Gen. Trepoff, commandant id' the palace; M.
Stichnisky, minister of war, and others in attendance discussing the advisability of the immediate dissolution of parliament.
Affects Money Market.
The Bourse was on the verge of a
panic today. In spite of sinue efforts
tn support the markel Imperial fours
fell half a point, to 72%, the lowest
point touched since the October rising.   Imperial fours closed tit 84%.

St. Petersburg, July 20.���No further
action regarding ihe proposed address
to the people was taken hy the lower
house of parllamenl today.
The constitutional democrat members appeared to be anxious to .iron
the subject if the government is so

publication. Peterhof circles are reported to lie jubilant over the disci.mforturc of lhe constitutional democrats. I

say : Fall trade in Canada has not opened actively

Montreal the outlook is good. Farmers in Quebec
are busy and the country trade is seasonably light.
Cheese is in active export demand, butter is easier.
Wool prices are easier. At Toronto fall trade is
encouraging. The strawberry pick is light, but
excepting prunes, other fruits promise a large yield.
Building material and farm machinery are active.

Next Royal Bank of ,'Canada, Columbia St., New Westminster
The farmers are being kept very
busy getting in their hay at the present time, and are unable to come into
the city as often as they would like.
On this account, tiie weekly market
at Lytton Square was not very well
attended yesterday, the majority of
sellers being women. Of course tbe
ladies are good buyers and sellers, but
when the farmers are absent, a great:
difference in the day', receipts is al-j
ways noticeable. The market was
over at an early hour, and by noon
���quietness reigned once more in tlie
All meats were fairly well represented, and there was a good business done, considering the attendance.
Beef was in good demand, with a limited supply, while Iamb and mutton
were not so plentiful, although there
was a fair demand. Only a small supply of pork was broughl in, and it
v.as very slow in selling. People sio
not want pork at this time of the year,
and will not he buying it for some
time to come. There wa.s a very fair
demand for veal, while the supply was
rather light,  and  BOld  quickly.
Among the feathered BtOCk, the demand was confined to fowl, and even
then, only large sized hens were being looked for. A good supply of
broilers, with only a limited demand
for the same, caused the vendors si 3
anxiety, before they were all sold, the
demand being exclusively for well-
grown birds. The demand ior ducks
was also very weak, while the supply-
was fair.
Eggs were as usual in good demand,
and the supply was soon bought up,
the wholesale price being 28 cents a
dozen. Fruit was eagerly sought after, and there was no difficulty in disposing of the luscious berries offend.
There wtis also a fair supply of apples offered, all being quickly Bold al
quotations. Raspberries, blackberries, red and black curants were also
offered in small lots, and there was
no difficulty in securing the quoted
price fur all the supply on the market.

&#        On the Famous
Inspection  of Canneries.
The prejudice against canned meats
which has been created by the revelation of the horible state of affairs
in   the  Chicago  packing houses,  and
by  more  recent asertions  that   English bouses are just as bad (a statement by the  way,  which  we believe
to be altogether too sweeping) is operating to prevent ..he use of British
Columbia canned salmon  in the Old
Country.    Those of us who know tiie
canneries, know that, there is no foun
dation for this;   but  the prejudice  is
there, and   Hon.   Mr.   Iirodeur,  minister of Marine and Fisheries, is taking
prompt   steps to correct   it.    To  this
end  he has wired to the British  Columbia  fisheries    commission    risking
that an Inspection be made of the canneries and an interim report sent  In,
which will form the basis of a. cable
to  the  proper  authorities  in  the  old
country.    Professor    Prince and  Mr.
Taylor  are absent    at   present,    cuii-

Russia, ii ihe word progress may he
used in connection wiih such a state
of matters as exists in that unhappy
country. They have an emperor and
a government and a parliament in
name; but the actual state of the country is a state of anarchy, Nor could
it well lie otherwise. The old repressive iiowers have broken down; long
smouldering discontent has burst into
flame: no man has been found gifted
by nature with the ability and force
of character which could enable him
to seize the place of leader, even of a
considerable faction of that vast and
heterogeneous population. Despite
the constant turmoil, so little real
change has taken place, that the following from a London paper, although
written two weeks ago, is still applicable: "We have ourselves but little
doubt of the ultimate outcome of the
existing anarchy. The revolution will
win; but there is a new danger approaching. Up to the present moment, though the powers of the dynasty have been threatened, tlie dynasty itself has retained so much of
the loyalty of the masses that it mighl
easily have effected a compromise
which would leave it its grand position, its enormous wealth, and, possibly, should it throw up a strong man,
or he wise enough to choose a capa-
Lle Vizier, would preserve much of its
predominence in the administration,
as the Hohenzollern dynasty has done.
We cannot but fear that there is now
danger lest, like the Stuarts and the
Bourbons, the Romanoffs should be
required to sacrifice all. The people
suspect ihem of incurable hostility to
their great demand, the possessio of
the cultivable land; and once convinced of ihat, they may either rank
tuemselves behind some Pretender, or
in utter despair of royalty set up a.
republic. Most observers in the West
regard this latter soluti n as impossible, and we do not, we confess, believe thai Russia is ready for any experiment of the kind. But we must
not forget that many Russians are
of a different opinion. The unity of
Russia, which so impresses mankind,
Ib far from perfect, and a federal constitution may, in all other plans fail,
prove intelligible to the people, who
have no*, we are told, entirely forgotten that autocracy was built up
by the gradual conquest of many comparatively small principalities. Russia, it is plain, suffers grievously and

The late session of the Dominion
House, although not very fruitful in
legislation which attracted public attention, did a good deal of work.
Something over a hundred bills were
passed, and the member who attended conscientiously to his committee
work had plenty, therefore, to keep
him busy, even without counting the
committee work which grew out of the
investigations promoted by the opposition. The Globe of July 14 has this
to say about the session: "The session of the Dominion Parliament,
whuh closed yesterday will not be regarded as among the more distinguished of the steadily-lengthening
series. It is somewhat notable as
marking the close of the first decade
of the Laurier administration, which
has pased ite tenth mile post without any perceptible loss of prestige.
Premier Scott of Saskatchewan has
no use for the talk of the people who

Hear him:
"The people of the west must be
allowed the advantage of all the railway conections they can get with the
United States, and the multiplication
of these connections will not to the
slightest extent Imperil the political
future of the Dominion by creating a
cleavage between west and east. Any
attempt on the part of the people of
the east to hinder the construction of
railways would be the most likely
cause of such a divergence. The laws
and institutions of the prairie provinces are similar to those of the western states, but the laws on the Cana-
dina -ide are better enforced, while
ihi' Institutions are better administered, The people of Canada, both
east and west, take for granted that
the Dominion is now a well established and permanent, unit among the
nations of the world, and this idea
will become more firmly rooted as the
years pass into history.

Statement   From   Mr.   Keefer.
Editor   Daily   News;
Sir���In your issue of the 18th instant I notice a short article stating
that a paragraph had been going the
rounds of the Provincial Press to the
effect that a certain Mr. G. A. Keefer, Dominion Government engineer,
with headquarters at Vancouver, had
been doing some boosting for Nanaimo
coal. I have not seen the paragraph
in question but, as it evidently refers
to me, I shall feel obliged if you will
give it an unqualified denial. In calling for tenders for our coal supply,
under recent instructions from Ottawa, I only stipulated that it, should
be a British Columbia product and of
approved quality, and I have in no
case expresed any opinion of any particular product to the detriment of or
in comparison with the others.
Yours faithfully,

Sockeye  Run Is Increasing.
The sockeye have been running in

some had  made their way as far up
1 as Lillooet. two weeks ago, but the
regular run had not 'darted, up to
last night. The indications are. however, that it is close at hand and it
is quite probable that Monday will
see the canneries regularly at work.

Undoubtedly the first tire company
organized iu this country was formed
iu New York Iu 1658. It was called the
Prowlers and was composed of eight
men, with 250 buckets, hooks and small
ladders. Whs-re the buckets were obtained and whether or not tbey were
in addition to those owned by the towu
the records fail to state. Iu 1079 Salem
purchased two or three dozen cedar
buckets, besides hooks and other Implements; also the selectmen and two
others were authorized to take command at tires aud to blow up and pull
down buildiugs when such action was
necessary. This practice appears to
have beeu much more couiiuOu before
the use of engines than afterward.
Boston on Sept. 9, 1679, ordered that
every quarter of the town should be
provided with twenty SWObeS, two
Bcoopes and six axes. The Bwobes, or
swabs, as they are now called, were
long handled mops that could be used
to pul out roof fires. The general usei
of swabs has long since disappeared,

n ach of a pail of water and more ini-
i r I   apparatus   is   uot   at   hand   a
long handle.1 nt p is today the most ef-

these swabs may be seen <>n many roof
In 1690 New York ordered that live
ladders and also books be made. In
Philadelphia no mention is made of
public precaution against fire until
1696, when a law was passed forbidding the tiring of chimneys or allowing
the same to become foul. Each house
was to have a swab, bucket or pail.
Another act was passed in 1700 ordering every household to have two leather buckets. In the following year six
or eight hooks for the purpose of tearing down houses were ordered to be

The  Queer  Chameleon.
There i.s nothing in the world will induce a chameleon to take even the
slightest apparent interest In its surroundings unless it be the sight of
what it considers a toothsome insist.
The chameleon's method of taking Its
prey ls very curious, being effects-d by
shooting out an enormously long,
worm i ike tongue, the end of which ls
clubbed and covered with a viscid secretion, to which the insects stick and
are thus drawn into its mouth. The actual projection of the tongue Is made
with marvelous rapidity. Tbe eyes of
the chameleon are very curious. Ths>y
are very large, but, with the exception
of a small opening in the center, are
covered with skin. Tbey are also entirely Independent of each other, with
the result that occasionally tbe creature is looking forward over its nose
with one eye, while with the other it is
intently watching something directly
behind it.
A  Bit of EiiKlixh  Humor.
An English humorist many years ago
hit upon a neat way of scoring against
certain politicians of tbe times. A
comic journal, not being a newspaper
within the meaning of the act, was prohibited from giving news, and so in
place of a parliamentary report the
humorist is question reported a few
"first lines" from speeches by prominent members: "Sir t'harles Wetherell
said he was not sensible"��� "Mr. Hunt
was entirely ignorant"��� "Lord Ashley
said he should take the earliest opportunity of moving"��� "Mr. Perceval
presented a petition praying"��� "Colonel Slbthorpe never could under-
stanil"��� "Lord Lyndhurst sakl be
must eutreat of every one to give him
credit"��� "Sir Edward Sugslen was not
one of those who though*"��� "Mr.
Croker said he had the fullest assurance"���

The noble Romans wits' peculiar in
their system of nomenclature. They
had the praenomen, the aomen and the
cognomen. The lirst of these distln-
guisheii tin- Individual and was equivalent to our Christian or baptismal
name. Ii was usually indicated by a
single letter, as a, for Aulus, or by
two letters, as Ap. for Appius, or three.
as Ser, for Servius. The nomen was
distinctive of the gens or clan and bas
no corresponding appellative among us.
Tin- cognomen was placed last and designated the famillae, precisely answering to our surname. Sometimes a
fourlh inline was added, the agnomen,
In consequence of a renowned action,
some conspicuous event of life or feature of character. Scipio, in addition to
his regular names, was styled Africa-
nns after his conquest of Carthage.
The name Germanlcus was assumed
by those who distinguished themselves
in the wars with tbe Germans,
In female names the Romans indulged but small variety of appellation,
and fancy had little or nothing to do
with their Invention and bestowal.
When there was but one daughter in a
family she received the feminine termination of her gentile name, as Tul-
11a, the daughter of I .amis Tullius
Cicero, and Octaviac, tlie sister of Oc-
tavlus Caesar, s-tc. which names were
retained even after marriage. When
there were two daughters one was
called Major and the other Minor, aa
Corn id ln Major and Cornelia Minor.
If there were more than two they were
distinguished by their number, thus:
Prima, Secunda, Teitia, Quarts, etc.
Tbe  Story  ��f  mi   Indention.
The power loom was the invention, of
t farmer's boy, who bad never seen or
heard of such a thing. He fashioned
one with bis penknife, and when be got
lt all done be showed it with great enthusiasm to his lather, who at once
kicked it all to pieces. Baying he would
have no boy about him who would
spend his time on such foolish thiiigs.
Thi- boy was sei.t to a blacksmith to
learn a trade, and his master took a
lively Interest in bim. He made a
loom of what was left of the one his
father had broken up and showed It to
his master. Tbe blacksmith saw he
had no common boy as an apprentice,
aud that the Invention was a valuable
one. He bad a loom constructed under
the supervision of tlie boy. It worke I
to their perfect satisfaction, and t! "
blacksmith furnished the means to
manufacture the looms, and the boy
received half tbe profits, in about a
year the blacksmith wrote to the boy's
father that he should bring with him
a wealthy gentleman, who was the inventor of the celebrated power loom.
You may be able to judge of tbe astonishment at tbe old home when his
son was presented to him as the 1-
veutor, who told bim that the loom
was the same as tbe model that he
had kicked to pieces tbe previous year.

Horr the Ancient*  Tested  She  IMirily
of  She  Metal.
The first coins of geld and sliver that
havi- come down to us arc now dated
as a rule In the time of Croesus, who
lived about tic middle of lbe sixth
century B, C.
It may readily be Imagined that a
mere lump of gold, supposed to be of
a certniu weight, would be subject to
skepticism unless it were guaranteed
by some recognized authority. So, in
order to save reweigbing and testing
at each transaction, these ingots or
coins were stamped with the authoritative mark of a prince or state. So
stamped they pocomc the true coins
in spite of the fact that, contrary to
modi'i'ii custom, tbey were not at al!
Rut, in spits' of the guarantee that
might be afforded by the mark of a
state or a prince, we find the Greeks
applying certain tests to determine the
genuineness of tlie currency offered to
them. Plating was easily detected by
jabbing the suspected coin with some
sharp Instrument. At otbor times tlio
touchstone was used. Sine whicb was
known as the "Lydian stone" was supposed to reveal a proportion of foreign
metal as small as a barley corn ia n
stater. Another test, in the case of silver, was to polish tbe coin and then
breaths- on il. If the moisture quickly
disappeared the metal was pure. Vet
another way to detect alloy was to
heat the coin or coins on redbot iron.
If the metal was unalloyed it remained bright, if mixed with other substances it turned black or red according as it was more or less impure.-

Dnlfoilil  mul   Asphodel.
Daffodii and asphodel���the latter, according to Homer, covered tlie meadow
haunted by the shades of departed heroes���are etyms logically the same. Old
time Englishmen confused tbe two
plants, which ure quite different, aud
it was reserved for later generations
to restore its true spelling to the true
asphodel and restrict daffodil, with its
mysterious "d," to the flower now
known by that name. Formerly it
was "affodilli'," and the "d" is variously explained as being a childish insertion, like the 'T"in Ted, from Edward,
or as representing the French "lleur
d'affrodllle" or the English "th' afl'ro-
dile" (the definite article) or as the
final "d" of "and" in such a combination ass "fennel! and affodll."
Brothers  nnd   Sisters.
It hns been proved again and again
that a boy without a sister is much to
be pitied; that a girl without a brother
is to be condoled with. And why? Because the mutual society improves
both. The boys) teaches the girl to bo
wider ii,'tided, less petty and narrow,
more manly physically, and, above all,
to understand something of the opposite sex. /..gain, the boy is a hundredfold nicer for having a sister. lie
confides his little scrapes to her, anil
she, with her gentle inborn gooduess,
helps him and advises him to avoid the
pitfall again.���London Queem.
Solitude is a matter of taste. It has
been the subject of much discussion.
Volumes haw been written in praise
or condemnation of it. But perhaps
the real value of solitude has never
been so subtly and so accurately expressed ns by the girl who was asked
If she liked being alone. "That depends," she answered sweetly, "ou
Whom I am alone with."

The Pointer.
There Is as much fallacy In attempting to prove tlie origin of pointing as iu
a like attempt to prove the origin of
eating. As a matter of fact, the pointing net commonly exhibited by the
pointer aud Better is an incident of the
capture or attempted capture of food
by dogs, and also by wolves and foxes.
Coyotes have been seen to draw and
point on prairie dogs and grouse in
precisely the same maimer that the
pointer and setter draw on game birds.
There were the same rigidity and
stealth, the pause to Judge of distauce
am! opportunity and the final rigid
pause when all the energies are concentrated for tbe final spring to capture. All the phenomena displayed by
the dog family indicate that the drawing and pointing in tlie pursuit of prey
were ever natural traits. It may be
reasonably believed that man could
not breed the pointing instinct out of
tbe dog If he attempted to do so ���

"I'm not going to say you mustn't go

The  Fountain   Pen.
The fountain pen i.s not an invention
of recent years. In Samuel Taylor's
"Universal System of Shorthand Writing." published in 1786, we find proof
of the fountain pen's great age.
"I have nothing more to add," wrote
Samuel Taylor, "for the use or Instruction of the practitioner, except a few
wor.N concerning the kind of ps :i proper to be used for writing shorthand.
For expeditious writing some use what
are called fountain pens, into which
your ink is put, which gradually flows
when writing, from thence into a small-
er pen cut short to fit the smaller end
of this instrument, but it is a hard

The  Pork.
It is about 1,000 years ago siuce the
fork made its appearance in Europe.
In 00 A. D. a son of the doge Pietro
Orsolo bad wedded in Venice tbe Briz-
zautine Princess Argila, who produced
at the wedding breakfast a silver fork
and gold spoou. Then tbe high Vene-
tlou families followed suit, and these
martyrs to fasbiou pricked their lips
with the new Instrument The fork
prospered, however, and spread over
Italy. In 1379 il had traveled as far
as Prance, and iu ic -; a traveler
brought it siirect to England.

Chunges   From   ���   Fish   to   n   Bird.
The story of the early life, transformation and final death of tb.' Chinese
quail is the most remarkable that is
found in the ornithological literature of
the world. The narrative in all its unreasonableness ie found in the story of
om chung, which is the name the Chinese quail is known by when ;it hon:,.
in the Flowery Kingdom. Celestial authorities on bird lore declare that no
Specimen uf om Chung was ever known
to live a year; that tbey do not lay
eggs, as all other known species of
birds do, and, finally, that their progenitor is a slimy, four jointed worm,
which has a red head and a sting on
the end of its tail, This queer seacoast
worm, according to the curious legend
of om chung, lays 100 eggs annually.
Fifty of these become fish and the other fifty are worms of the same species
as the parent. The fish that lias come
into existence ln this curious manner
also lays 100 eggs a year. Fifty of
these become water denizens after the
image of their parent, and the others
become birds of l.'ie famed om chung
family. These om chungs, or Chinese
quails, never breed, uud are only
brought Into existence as above related,
We give the above not as a literal fact,
but as a specimen of the Chinese idea
of evolution.
IliostrnphfcM   na   ii   Stimulus.
We cannot help living In some degree
the lives of heroes who aro constantly
In our minds. Our characters are constantly being modified, shaped and
molded by the suggestions which are
thus held. The most helpful life sio-
rles for the average youth are uot th i
meteoric ones, the unaccountable ones,
the astonishing ones, like those of Napoleon, Oliver Cromwell and Julius
Caesar. The great stars of the race
dazzle most boys. They admire, but
they do nol feel that they can imitate
them. Tiny like to read their Jives',
but they do not get the helpfulness and
the encouragement from them that
they do from reading the lives of those
who have not startled the world so
much. It Is the triumph of the ordinary ability which is most helpful as
an inspiration and encouragement.
The life of Lincoln has been an infinitely greater inspiration to the world
than the life of Napoleon or that of
Julius Caesar.���O. S. Marden in Success Magazine.
BulldoRH   u   Menace   to   Health.
Tlie bulldog is a uieuace to health.
We have this on the authority of a
noted French physician, who says that
because of his large mouth the bulldog Is a great purveyor of disease, especially of consumption, diphtheria
and the like, as the dribbling from the
heavy, loose jaws is incessant. Those
who fondle bulldogs do so at a great
risk. He traces many cases of infectious disease, especially among
young children, to households in wblch
bulldogs are kept as pets. When we
add to this the Invariable ferocity of
the beast, the danger to which children
and other Innocent and defenseless
people are exposed whenever, lie roams
the streets or highways, we have au
argument In favor of his disposal that
cannot be galusald. Away with bulldogs!

will find it quite effective for barring

The   Hast   Side.
"A city's shuns," said a globe trotter,
"are always in its eastern quarter. I
wonder why? Take New York. Its
east side Is Its slum side. So it is with
London. The east eud is the slum end.
Of Philadelphia, Chicago, Canton and
Madrid the same thing holds good, as
I know from personal experience. The
only possible ground 1 can give for a

Anility of the Ponderous  Animal to
Bear  Under  Water.
It seems perfectly evident that
whales must hear wbeu in the water,
says the London Field. This inference
is confirmed by the comparatively
small development of the other sense
organs. The eye, for instance, is very
small and can be of little use even at
the comparatively small depths to
which whales ire now believed to descend.
Agaiu, the sense of smell, judging by
the rudimentary conditions of the olfactory organs, must be In abeyance,
and whales bave no sense organs comparable to the lateral line system of
fishes. Consequently it would seem
that when below the surface of the water they must depend chiefly upon tlie
sense of bearing. Probably this sense
is so highly developed as to enable the
animals In the midst of the vibrations
made by the scxewlike movements of
the tall or flukes to distinguish the
sound (or vibrations) made by the impact of tho water against the rocks
even in a dead eai in, and, In the ease
of piscivorous species, to recognize by
the pulse in the water the presence of
shoal fish.
Failing lu this explanation, it is difficult to imagine how whales cau find
their way about in the semidarkness
and avoid collisions with rocks and
rockbound coasts.
Bren   If   It   Be   Emotional   Insanity,
Let la Have Plenty of It.
j    Some  English  scientist has  reached
the conclusion that laughter is lnsan-
i Ity.   He regards a fit of laughter as nn
emotional  insanity  of short duration.
All right, then, give us a little more Insanity.    There is  uot laughter enough
in the world���at. least the right kind of
: laughter.   We will let the Englishmen
j keep their faces straight If tbey want
to, but lt befits the American civilization better to break out Into laughter
��� once lu awhile.    Laughter ls good for
tbe  facial   muscles.     It  develops  the
' muscles of the neck as well as the face.
It makes the corners of the mouth turn
upward instead of downward.    It gives
the wrinkles of the face a pleasing out-
line, quickens the action of tho heart
and gives new life to the nerve centers.
Yes, we can afford to let the Englishman look wise and Idiotic if lie wants
j to,    ne can stare with fish eyed blg-
I otry  whenever a joke is perpetrated,
never allowing a ripple of merriment
: to disturb the placidity of his counte-
I nance.   He cau do all these things that
] he wishes to, but let us go on laughing.   This kind of Insanity mixes very
well  with sanity and prosaic life.    A
little burst of emotional Insanity breaks
nicely  the  monotony of facts and figures.���Medical Talk.

A writer who once saw Lord Tenny-

his beard.   He wore an ugly Inverness
i cape and a large slouch h��t.  He looked
1 like a  bandit ln a melodrama, and I
thought him some poor actor who had
come out ln some of the stage propeiv

sorry for htm as I watched bim walk

Many Runs Scored During Six Innings
After   Which   Game  was
Called   Off.
The   Millside   baaebal   nine   arrived
safely  in the  city ;...-:  evening, and
w.re   on   hand   when   Uie   game   was
called  at  Queen's  Park.    One glance j
at   lhe   visiting  team   was  enough  toj
ie'   the  New    Westminster    baseball j
piayers know that their laurels would
not be wrested from them during the
game and it was with beaming coun- j
tenances that they donned their uniforms und prepared to do battle with
the  Millside    team.      A good    sized
crowd watched the game.
To give an analysis of the game
would be too much like poking fun
at the visitors, who excused themselves on the ground that they had not
had many practices this year, and they
claimed to be handicapped because
several of their regular players were
haymaking in the country and could
not come to the game. They did their
best, however, and put up as good a
game as they could under the circumstances. With a tew good practices, and the addition of a few real
players, they will have a good team
before the season is over.
The Westminster nine were out in
full force, and were playing as if
they had money on the game. They
scored run after run. until the official
scorer tired of his duties, and forgot
to count. The runs were coming altogether too fast, the third inning being especially fruitful for New Westminster.      The Millside    aggregation

With the wheat movement but n

handle the increased crop whicli" is
expected this year.
During the month of April ihe
freight   traffic   of   the   western   lines
scored   two   runs   during  the   second
inning, one in the fourth, and one each j showed  an increase of about  40  per
in the fifth and sixth.   The game was
stopped   after   the   sixth,   as   it   was
getting late.   The Milside's score was
five runs,  but there is a division of
opinion  as to the number scored  by
Westminster.   The official scorer says
that they got ten runs, but it is just
possible that some of the players may
have  got  home  once  or twice  while
he was not looking.   FretfLynch stood
in   the   center  of   the   diamond,   and
handed out decisions.
The batting order of the teams was
as follow:, A. Sinclair being pressed
into service for Millside as they happened to be a man short:
