Dear Sir���I have been waiting very
patiently to see what you are going
to do in reference to the Millside.

City of N'ew Westminster. I hardly
think that you can expect us to keep
patience indefinitely in regard to these
matters, as it is imperative that we
should have tbo lines opened at an
early date. I do not think that you
can find another city on the American
continent with as poor a street car
service as Xew Westminster has. Not
on tho line you are operating, which
ls being improved very much, but in
the general service to the various
parts of the city.

His Worship Mayor Lee,
City Hall, Now Westminster
Dear Sir���1 beg to acknowledge receipt of your favour dated July 16th,
addressed to General Manager Sperling, with reference \6 tbe proposed
Millside. Lulu Island and Dp-town extensions in New Westminster. 1 regret that Mr. Sperling Is absent from
tbe city and will not return until
tho end of this week, when I will lay
your  letter  before  him.
With reference to the matters referred to. Mr. Sperling has had. I be
lieve. one interview with you, and m:
self two, and at each of these meetings you were given an assurance mat
as soon as we were assured that the
further development which we are
carrying on at Coquitlam Lake will
be no longer opposed by New Westminster, we will be prepared to begin
at once not only the matters which
you refer to, but several others of ex-
Crown Timber Agent James Leamy
reports that the fires ln the district
are not at present looking dangerous.
The blaze near Port Moody lias subsided but is not out, and a high wind
mi. ht cause some damage. One fire
on Harrison lake is not dangerous and
no reports as to the extent of another  there  have  been  received.
So far tills year none of the fires
can be directly traced to campers.
Sparks from tho donkey engines used
in logging operations are responsible
for the most serious of the conflagrations and the one at Hazelmere
was started by a settler who had a
permit to burn the timber on his land.
One fire on the shores of Harrison
lake is thought to have been started
by campers.
The department is taking every precaution to prevent tlie campers from
becoming too careless, on Howe
sound every Sunday there are dozens
of campers and there the crown timber office lias a man stationed whose
duty it is to patrol tlie waterfront and
keep an eye on the campers. So
far no bad fires have occurred in that
district.
Thc department hns so far been
aide to get tbe names of none of tbe
parties  responsible  for  tlie  fires,  but
If it does there will probably lie some
work for the courts.    Crown Timber
Agent Leamy is about, tired of warn-ig0vernnj4M1(   .,i;iN

The customs returns for the month
of July show a marked increase over
the receipts for tlie same month last
year. Iu the port of New Westminster
is the change most marked, but in
the outporls there has also been a
substantial gain. The following are
the actual figures:
1910���Port. $13.70(1.71; outports,
.8.501.65; other revenue, $132.08; total.  $22,390.43.
1909���Port, $8,775.69; outports,
$5,253.58; other revenue, $13.50; total,
$11,042.77.
Increases���Port, $4,931.02; outports,
$3,248.00; other revenue, $168.58; total. $8,347.66.
The receipts at the land registry office for tlie month of July are $4,041.-
57 as against $2,850 for the same
month last year.
The amount is slightly below that
taken in last month, but as July is
generally conceded to be the quietest
montli of the year in tlie realty business,  tlie result is remarkably high.
Auditor   Moses   B.   Cotsworth   read | want of  a  suitable  premises  for  re-
the third installment of his report hist
night to a large and Interested audience. Although nothing sensational
is brought to light, there is scarcely
a department of the city's administration or a committee of tbe council
which is not criticized to a certain
extent.
The final chapter of the report will
be read next Monday night, after
which Auditor Cotsworth wlll leave
for England. Here is the report as
read by the auditor last evening:
To tlie Mayor, Aldermen and Citizens
of New  Westminster:
In submitting this portion of my
report on your 1909 accounts, the fact
should be borne in mind that 1 was
first appointed by resolution of the
council and on meeting them was desired to report upon matters concern-
lugs the officers and clerical staffs;
also to make any helpful suggestions
concerning the administration of civic
affairs, Therefore those matters have
been blended ln sequence throughout
the report.
Traveling  Expenses.
117. Further investigation shows
that the amounts charged for expenses of travel, etc., by city officials
indicates   need   for   the   abolition   of
pairs and storage purposes.
The loose practice of having valuable electric stores kept in unlocked,
inconvenient rooms so diverse as the
upper floor of tlie city hall and the
back of the electric station is so liable to loss of stock and wastage that
it emphasizes tbe need for a central
store for all departments for which
the late electric Btation could so profitably have been used.
Unfortunate  Sale  of  Electric  Station.
125. The folly of selling the city's
electric station, comprising the city's
valuable buildings on two full-
sized lots in the indusrial part
of the city, for $500 cash and $5,500
to lie paid at tbe end of five
years, is apparent, when not even
$1,100 per year has to he paid, but
only interest on the $5,500 till the
twenty-third of August, 1912. Then
only the capital sura is payable whilst
the accruing value gives to the purchaser at the expense of the city assets which have been depreciated
through neglect of business foresight
to provide for the increaslag requirements of the city.
School Trustees' Account.
12��. That lack of foresight in the
city's interests is further evidenced
by the account for tbe site of the Lord

Vi toria,    Aug.    l.���According
Government   Agent    F.   C.   Campbell,
who lias just been recalled to the capital from the isolated Peace river district of British Columbia, the fur col-
ms in that comparatively inac-
cessible region will this year be
heavier than usual, the lynxes being
especially abundant.
Last year and this the rabbits have
overrun the country, and this is said
by tbe native hunters to inevitably
herald plenty of lynx. There is also a
local superstition as to every seventh
year being a heavy iynx year���as
every fourth year witnesses a big run
of salmon in British Columbia rivers
���and tbis chances to be the year of
the lucky seven.
Eur collections generally for dispatch from the Eort St. John depot via
the semi-yearly boat to Edmonton considerably surpass those of the past
five years, both for quantity and quality, the foxes being particularly well
represented.
A trapper named Bitford was recently frozen stiff beside one of his
deadfalls about sixty miles from Fort
St. John. Two silver foxes were in
his bag and a third in a near-by trap.

IT PAYS  TO ADVERTISE
���IN-
THE DAILY NEWS
Liverpool. Aug. 1.���Treasure hunting is the fashion on tbe European
side of tbe Atlantic. Holland has a
party engaged in the Zuyer Zee. Scotland one in Tobermory bay, and now
Wales has joined with a search near
Great Orme's head for $300,000 that
went down in the Hornby Castle in
1S24.
The Hornby Castle was a Liverpool
brig, bound from Liverpool to Rio de
Janeiro with a general cargo, including the bullion. She was blown out
of her course during a terrific gale,
and was dashed against the rocks of
the Great Orme.
With the exception of one sailor
every man was drowned. This man
had a miraculous escape. When the
vessel struck the rocks, which rose
to the height of nearly 100 feet, he
was on the bowsprit of the brig, and
was thrown onto a narrow shelf of
rock, where he lay unconscious. On
recovering he clambered to the top,
and reaching a blacksmith's shop at
the copper mines told his story to the
sceptical smith.
In tlie morning the miners were
convinced by the wreckage that the
story was true.
The search is being made by John
Oibney, of Liverpool, ln the salvage
steamer Lady Kate. The work is ln
charge of the grandson of a man
who had been shown the exact spot
where the brig struck. The divers
have not yet located the wreck.
New   York,   Aug.   1.���A   line   white
diamond. I g    191    karats,   and
0 uncut, is the latest
find at the Premier mine in South
Africa, according to advices which
reached. Maiden Lane dealers tbis
week. The stone is described as absolutely flawless, measuring two
Im es long by about three-fourths of
an inch thick, it tapers in breadth
from one-quarter inch to three-quarters inches.
A   Maiden   Lane   expert   said   that,
judging  from  the  description  of  tbe
uncut stone, the  largest  perfect  diamond that could be cut from it would '
be pearl-shaped.    The finished stone
will probably rank among the world's;
famous gems.   When cut tbe diamond;
should be worth at least  $200,

SLEEPING  SICKNESS  JUST
SUITED   NEGRO   MENDICANT
Paris, Aug  1.���The doctors  of  the
Pasteur instil me are telling a tale
against thi ms< fes that is making
Paris laugh. The winner was a negro haling from East Africa. Possibly
he learned a bit from the Rooseveli
expedition.
Ile landed moneyless at the Institute and said he was developing sleeping sickness. Perpetual hunger and
prolonged drowsiness were bis symptoms, he said, and East African negroes always felt that way when beriberi was coming en.
The hospital staff put him to hed
and for a couple of weeks he has
been a star patient. They fed him
on the best, only waking him to supply nutritious dainties. As bis flesh
was maintained they flattered themselves a cure was on the way.
But the negro overdid the part. No
matter bow his physical strength developed he showed no signs of a desire for effort. Sleep and food were
all be asked for. Suspicion settled on
tbe minds of tlie doctors, so they
turned him ouL
A little later on bo turned up again
at the entrance and said he wanted
to thank the principal for his kindness. His grin was all-embracing
when told he was an unmitigated
fraud.

Bridge.
As an example, the waste expenditure on the new Lulu Island
bridge may he cited. Bad material
and Inferior workmanship would have
been promptly slopped and the con-
tractlng lirms forthwith debited with
the serious loss which resulted from
lack of direct civic engineering responsibility,
Though more than seven months
have since elapsed the board of works
has failed to definitely estimate tlie
amount the city should claim from
the contractors who wil) benefit at
the city's expense by the unjustifiable
delay as evidence of defects and neglect is weakened by such failure to
promptly require compensation for
those short-comings,
Money for Boards of Works���Diverted
and Over-Expended.
136, Irregularities have occurred
through the board of works diverting
money voted for one appropriation to
Illegally expend it upon another
branch of work���with the result that
neither of such inter-diverted accounts
have been properly accounted and
financial arrangements were thereby
disorganized.
I'M. Last year tlie estimated expenditure was $12,700 but the actual expenditure was $28,81'.i. Thus, for every
$100 the taxpayers were lead to expect they would have to provide they
are now asked to pay $221.
Other departments also over-ran
their accounts.
Other departments also over-expended their estimates. As examples
tho following may be cited:
Gross  Over-Expenditure.
Fire  Department  Expenditure.
Vear  1908���Estimated,  $15,239;   actual, $18,935;  excess, $3,696;  percentage,  24.
Year 1900���Estimated, $20,602; actual, $27,014; excess, $6,512; percentage,
22.
Light Department.
Year 1908���Estimated, .34.450; actual,   $43.024;   excess,   $8,574;   percentage, 25.
Year 1909���Estimated, $42,513; actu-
al, $64,820; excess, $22,307; percentage, 52.
Works Department.
Year 1908���Estimated, $11,599; actual,   $19,811;   excess,   $8,212;   percent-
ate. 71.
Year 1909���Estimated, $12,700; actual, $28,819; excess, $16,119; percent-
age,  127.
Two years' total for these three de
partments��� Estimated. $137,003; actu
al, $202,423; excess, $65,420; percent
age, 48.
How can the city's affairs be rightly
kept under such an extravagant system?
Who Are Responsible.
139. It may bo noticed by glancing
down the relative percentages of excess in the last column that the board
of works is most prone to exceed its
estimate.
For that neither the engineer nor
the superintendent is responsible.
The aldermen supervising the board
of works are most directly to blame
but indirectly all the members of last
vear's council���especially the finance
committee���are responsible, because
of the pernicious system they wrongly
allowed to prevail by which all other
departments were flrst granted their
estimates, and then whalpver happened to be left available from the two
mill tax was appropriated to the board
ot works.
140 That highly Important department should have full estimates prepared and whatever is necessary provided for by raising the tax, which
cannot be limited to a two mill rate
The committees ot the fire and light
departments were thus relatively more
directly responsible than the board of
works  for  the  deficits  they  Illegally
authorized. n��.���*i
Sources    of    Roadstone    and    Gravel
Supplies.
141 The works department seems
too cofltly���partly owing to the high
prices charged for materials such as
roadstone. gravel, etc., for which the
City should long ago have secured free
sources of supplies to maintain ts
liberty and minimize the taxes That
want will be even more keenly eit
during eusuiug years until supplied
Ese it adversely affects not only
the cost of the regular street, etc
work, but also increases tho cost of
similar   work   done  for   the  city   by
r local or outside contractors tor
current works or local improvements.
Revenue Account.
142. In  submitting to your  Exhibit
K    the   revenue and expenditure ac-
ou2s for the year ended December

As the profit earning, revenue, expenditure, assets and liability accounts are detailed as Exhibits 4, 5
and 6, they furnish tlie cogent facts
for your Information. ^^^^^^^^^^^^
145. The  most  prominent   factor  is : and council as
the   increasing   indebtedness   of   tho
city.
The bonded debt. Increased from
$1,107,100 at December 31, 1908, to

help the city.
150. That, as I hope to prove, in the
conclusion of my report next Monday,
can only be kept within reasonably
bearable limits by promptly insisting
upon a thorough and equitable reassessment through the city and careful exercise by the finance committee

48 and 54, as essential to ensure the
city's  prosperity.

from  burdening their successors and

Each tender must be signed and

ENGLISHMEN   EASE
UP    ON    SMOKING
London, Aug. 1.���Englishmen are
smoking less as well as drinking less
alcohol. The Increased duties on tobacco are responsible for a remarkable decrease in the consumption of
all forms of tobacco, and the falling
off is strikingly shown ln official statistics just issued.
The home consumption of tobacco
from May 1 to April 30, i<>t)*-*, was
over 1^2 million pounds, while for the
corresponding period ln 1009-10 it was
only some eighty-two million pounds.
Up to the time Lloyd-George's famous
bt Iget went into effect there bad been
a steady increase at. the rate of about
2,000,000 pounds per annum.

Your Opportunity
We have now placed on the market
a limited amount of 50 per cent, paying stock of a conservative firm doing
business in the City of New Westminster and Vancouver. The firm,
wishing to extend their business to
Prince Rupert, require more capital,
and consequently this opportunity is
given to the public to share In the
profits of a safe and going concern,
guaranteeing large profits to those
who are fortunate enough to invest
some of their surplus money. We feel
that we are well within the mark in
stating that the profits in the next
three months will be 20 per cent, of
the investment. It will pay you to
call at our offices, at the corner of
Columbia and Begbie streets, and investigate this proposition, as an
opportunity of this kind has seldom,
if ever, been offered to the citizens
of  New Westminster.

had been increased, it was decided to
allow no one In that section of the
stand except those wbo possessed
coupons for seats, although hundreds
could have been accommodated without the effects of overcrowding being
felt. The receipts were the largest

Paris, Aug. 1.���An International
boycott against King Alfonso, of
Spain, with demonstrations against
him in every foreign city he may visit,
will 'be urged today by those Spanish
revolutionsists who have been exiled
from their own country and ate now
living in Paris. Today is the anniversary of tlie beginning of the fatal
riotings In Barcelona, in wliich more
than lod lives were lost, and following wbicli it is said 500 persons were
shot by order of oourtmartlal,
To celebrate the anniversary of tbe
uprising, the revolutionists are preparing a proclamation which they will
circulate al) over the continent.
In part it reads:
"It i3 necessary to force the criminal king to remain in his own country, wbicli he manages so badly.
Country-loving citizens there will
make his further rule Impossible, and
their comrades throughout Kurope
should not allow Alfonso to dishonor
their respective capitals with his
presence."

New York. Aug. 1.���Young Corbett,
another fighter wbo never came back,
imbibed    too    freely    yesterday,   and
while in a maudlin condition decided
! that he was the legitimate defender of
Ithe supremacy of the white race. Jef-
I fiics having failed in defending it pu-
glllstlcally, and hied himself to Baron
j Wilkins'   resort,   where  .lack  Johnson
j is quartered, and in a loud and ora-
I torical   manner  Invited  the owner  of
I the "golden smile" to come forth atfd
! got "bis."
Johnson was dreaming of speed records and big purses and did not. hear
tho     former     lightweight,     champion
| orate.    However, the colored patrons
! of Wilkins' place did, and they came
i forth in a hurry.    Foi  a few minutes
i a dark cloud hovered over William ll.
Uothwell, as be is known  in private
! life, but the conqueror of the terrible
Terry  McGovern  was not  afraid.    A
policeman rescued him In  time, and
when Young Corbetl attempted to try
his wallop on the minion of the law
he was quickly Bubdued. Corbett s em-
bonpolnl  was too great to permit fast
going so he took the count and afterwards spent a few hours in jail, not
having the necessary $6 to bail himself out.

HOOK   THROWS   LIGHT
ON   COLUMBIA   SALMON
j    Portland,  Ore.,   Aug.   1��� Light   has
I been thrown on the migrations of the
I Columbia river salmon along the Pa-;
I cific coast in a curious way.   A fish re-1
\ eently taken near Portland by flsher-
i men   for   a  packing  company   had   a,
I large steel hook fastened to its cheek
I and a short piece of line attached. The
I hook was of a peculiar pattern, and
j caused considerable speculation.
Local authorities decided the hook
is a band-made affair, of Mexican or
I Indian   handiwork,  although  there  is
an  English company tbat turns out a
: hook similar to It.   None of the manufacturers In  this  country  make  anything  like  It.    The  line Itself  is   of
j fibre reinforced with twine and pleat-
i ed in a style that indicates it is Mexi-
I can work.      It Is supposed the   fish
I picked up the hook on the Mexican
coast, biting at a troll, and breaking
the fisherman's line.
Salmon return to their native
streams to spawn. Where they go in
the meantime always has been a mystery. This Incident seems to show
that the young fish from the northern
rivers, or at least some of them, turn
south after they get big enough to
travel.

'PIERRE OF THE  PLAINS."
About the most pretentious presentation of the season will be the offer-
in. of Harold Nelson's company In
"Pierre of the Plains." which will be
seen at the Opera bouse for one performance on Friday
Mr. Nelson re
cently terminated a lon. and unprecedented runs at tlie Garrlck theatre In
San Francisco, and the Beck theatre
at Belllngham. "Pierre of tlie Plains,"
Is Mr. Nelson's masterpiece. It is a
refreshing concoction that deals with
settlers on the border, those types
With Which all in this section are familiar. Pierre, the principal character ls a breed wbo has been much maligned by traducers who seek to keep
him from Jen, the daughter of a road
bouse keeper, whom ho mutely loves,
and to whom be finally shows himself a real hero. Throughout the action of the play there Is much pathos
and a blending of fine humor that is
bandied adroitly by Mr. Nelson's supporting company of artists.
Miss Grace Nelson, a society debutante of San Francisco, who is
noted for her beauty and talent, will
play the leading feminine role, that of
Jen   Pierre's sweetheart.
Tudging from the advance sales
since "Pierre of the Plains" has been
announced for its coming engagement
the attendance will be a record-
breaker. 11     J
are not uncommon.      Often the Chinaman and his white wife will return
to his home land, and misery for her
begins at once, if it has been so long
deferred.    She finds that under Chinese law she has no status but that
of a yellow man's concubine.   The yel-11910.
low baby he was bound to marry years ],
before is recognized as his only pos-1
sible  wife.    The white woman is no
more  than her  servant.    If  she has
children, they are the legal wards of
tlie   Chinese   woman,   as   much   as
though they had been born of her.
Turned   Into   the   Street.
Writing in the  Pittsburg  Dispatch,
"Ex-Attache" gives some instances of
misguided  white  girls  who  have  accompanied   their   Chinese   husbands
home, only to find that they are mere
1 deputy wives, and that their supposed
husbands have every legal and traditional right to treat them as slaves or j
cattle.    One  Newcastle  girl   was ac-
| tually turned out of doors by her Chinese husband and might have died in
the  streets  had  she not been  found
and   rescued   by    a  missionary.      Instances  of  the  sort   are   frequently
brought to the attention of the Chinese    government,    through    foreign
protests, and though nothing is done
or can  be done  to punish offenders,
the Chinese regent  knows that such
incidents   do   his   country   no   good
abroad.    In   forbidding  future   mixed
marriages he has taken tlie safe, easy
way to avoid trouble.
The   Japs   Also   Object.
The  Japanese  object  to  such  alliances quite as strongly as do the Chinese.     They   realize   that   they   very
rarely turn out well, and though there
is no law forbidding them, any Japanese   incautious   enough   to   wed   a
white woman is apt to feel the fwep
of the Mikado's displeasure.   N .t v. 1*
long ago, Count Todo, a Japanese nobleman of high position, was deprived
of his rank and his offices at court
because he married an Englishwoman, formerly Mrs. E. G. Addison. Divorce    quickly    separated    the    mismatched pair, but this did not save
Ithe count from feeling the weight of
j official condemnation.    It is said that
(the fact of having a white wife has
! prevented the brilliant Viscount Aoki
j from   advancement,   and   that   if   he
I were  a  member  of  the  old  nobility
1 ho would have been divested of his
title.
Misguided    Missionaries.
It   is  to   be   hoped  that   Christian
: countries will  follow the wise exam-
' pie set by the regent of China, and
forbid  marriages  between  white poo-
| pie  and  others  of a   different   complexion.   To say that, these unions are
altogether  objectionable   and   demoralizing is not  to assume any superiority for tlie white race.    Nor is it to
1 set  up  a proposition  at all  contrary
'with   the   Christian   doctrine    of    the
equality and  brotherhood  of  man.  It
is  to  be  feared  that  a  misapprehension on this score has Induced some
missionaries to promote these unions.
Others have thought  themselves performing a Christian act in joining together  abandoned  white  women  and
their Chinese or negro admirers.    So
long as they have this false view of
the  proper  relationship  between  different   races,   the   necessity   for   the
state interfering will contjnue to exist.

The Oven
Of a Range
THAT a perfectly constructed,
air-tight oven will bake better with half the fuel than a
loosely constructed oven, is a fact
beyond question. Tho Majestic
oven is mad�� of heavier material
than any other, and is riveted (not
bolted) to a malleable L or angle
Iron frame, making it absolutely
air-tight. The oven in an ordinary stove or range is bolted or
riveted to the range body, without
bracing and without frames, allowing a knife blade to pass
through corners and sides. It ia
natural that with an oven constructed In this manner, it requires twice the fuel, and not near
as good results as can be obtained
in any oven of a Majestic Range.
The Majestic oven stays that way,
too.

To Eat
There's a popular proverb to the effect that
"a change is as good as
a rest."
No one can stop eating very well, but a
change of diet often
benefits the stomach and
the health in general.
That's why it may pay
you to look over the
menu at the ROYAL

The cooking is perfect,
