been   thrown
Infatuated with a young white girl
attending the Seventh Day Adventists'
school, with him, at Pitt Meadows,
J. G. Johnnie, a ill-year-old Chinaman,
yesterday attempted Ao shoot himself with a .45 calibre Webley revolver when he was being placed under
arrest for threatening to kill the girl
because she refused to accept his attentions.
Provincial Constable Gammon, who
had been sent for by the parents of
the girl, had just notiiied the Celestial
that he was under arrest when the
Oriental asked ��� permission to get
something from his school desk. Securing his revolver he placed the
barrel against his stomach and was
about to press the trigger when the
constable threw him to the floor and
twisted his hand away from his body.
Professor Parker, the scliool teacher,
jumped to the officer's assistance
and wrenched the gun away from
Jol nnie.
Had the Chinaman fired the revolver the bullet would have gone
clean through his body and would
probably have killed the police officer
who was in direct dne with the crazed victim of unreciprocated love.
The climax in this one-sided love
affair was reached when the girl refused to accept a $2f> gold watch offered her by the Chinaman, who
thereupon asked her for a present of
$25, threatening to kill her if she did
not furnish the money within a week.
The Chinaman has been brought
here and lodged In the provincial jail.
He will be arraigned In the district
court on Thursday charged with carrying a concealed weapon and with
writing letters  threatening to

destroy the building and it was while
the father was in town reporting on
the previous attempts to the police

The police and ail concerned are
at a loss to explain why the fires

London, Jan. 26.���T. P. O'Connor,

"'i is absurd to contend that the Dib-

"Nationalist members before now

numbers of Unioulst opinion have
lu-li>ed to make Conservative majorities several times. Is an Irish vote

"It is ridiculously contrary to the
facts to suggest that the po'.icy of
the Irish party will be dictated from
America and by those who ar,e called
American   paymasters.    The  i pie

It came to the surface In connection

National Park," in northern Montana.
It was said that the negotiations were
in progress looking to the establishment of a similar park on the Canadian side of the international line
which it i& intended shall connect
with the proposed American reservation.
The senate bill failed to pass today
because of the objections of Senator
Borah, who did not explain his opposition, but other senators indicated
doubt as to the wisdom of the plan.
Senator Bacon took the position that
the park would be an unnecessary
expense. Others Indicated opposition
because of the proximity of the proposed park to the national Yellowstone park.

Large   Quantities   of   Salted   Product
Arrives     Regularly  from     San

The Sun Francisco Bteamer Umatilla, which arrived in Victoria Mon-
daj night, brought a largo consign-
ment of dried fish, which Is being distributed to different parts of the prov-
Ince, the bulk of it going to Nanaimo,
I inula i land and tin.; city. The con-
signments are to < bines - merchants, whose customers apparently

the purelj  Chini se fashion.
"' i'8 seems to be thi opportui y
for some enterprising packi r. V, aj
can noi the British Columbia flsh oe
salted in such a Way that it may
prove palatable to the Chinese people.
There would seem to be- a large business in sight for the person who can
give the fish just that Oriental flavor
which is necessarj to si cure the business.
There are regular Importations i'\

We are delighted to see that the
completion of the Front street roadway has been taken in hand, and
that the work Is being done ln a very
satisfactory and thorough manner.
Henceforth this important business
thoroughfare will wear a decency of
aspect such as it has not possessed
before, and will give a much more inviting welcome to the visitor who arrives by this entrance to the city
than it has hitherton done. To Hie
B. C. Electric Hail way company Hie
city owes some thanks lor the assistance they have so readily afforded
toward the Improvement of the street
by providing Ihe granite that has been
laid and which is now being rolled in.
This will form a good, solid surface,
which with a little care and attention
in the way of repairs will remain in
excellent condition for a number of
years.
But something ought to be done
with respect to the space, a width of
ton feet or so. that exists between
the Canadian Pacific and the Great
.Northern tracks. This lays low. and
forms just now a muddy lagoon
through which those who have business with the various wharves along
the waterfront must perforce make
their way. It is up to the Works
committee to require the two railway
companies to level up this space,
either hy metalling or planks, so as
to complete tho excellent effect of the j
good work being done on the actual
roadway, and make Front street an ,
altogether decent and pleasant place
to travel over
So far the Council has not decided
exactly what course it will pursue in
regard to the application of Messrs. |
Gilley Bros., to make use of pari of
tho waterfront on the end of Tenth
street. Now this matter has come
forward the Council should take Into
earnest consideration the question of ,
dealing with the oily street ends gen-I

���should   be   placed   in   ihe   hands  of
those timid,  shrinking souls who bad
opposed    tbe    radical    policies   upon
which the battle had been won."   To
thwart that policy had been the earliest   proposals   made  bj   the,  beaten
party.    Mr.  Balfour had declared that |

policy,   for   we    dare not betray    the

Fighting   For  Principles.
Winston Churchill, at Dartford,
placed his hand on his breast and
said thai the Liberal party was not I
fighting for office. "We are fighting
for certain great principles," he declared, "which wo believe are identical with the vital welfare and general progress of the country. Except
for the purpose of advancing those
great principles, we should not concern ourselves about the pretension
of remaining in ollice. I do not pretend that we have not had losses
which are to bo regretted, but whatever our strength our policy will be
the same. We are going to march
straight for the enemy's batteries."

eraflv,  and  Eormulate a   Bcheme   for
their permaneni   improvement.
Those street  ends have been sadly
neglected   in   the   past, and for the
most  part their present condtilon la
anything   but   creditable to  the city.
It was. we believe, owing to the fact
thai  the Tenth street end seemed to
be   nobodoy's  care  thai Gilley Bros.
were encouraged to put forward the ,
scheme   for  Its   utilization  whclh Is
now before the  Council.    Such an op-
portunlty as these street ends present
for   advantageous   use  naturally  appeals  to business  men.    We can not
see that the city would suffer in any
way   by   allowing    Messrs.   Gilley   to
utilize the space for which they have
asked, in the manner suggested.   By
the proposed arrangement the city wil]
retain all its rights and be at liberty
to retake possession at any time, and
in  the  meanwhile the appearance of
this neglected and untidy corner will
be materially improved.
At very little cost all the street
ends might be made, if not exactly
beautiful, at least decent in appearance, and become really useful to the
citizens, and those having business in
the city, if each had a proper landing
stage affixed, We believe thero Is a
slight remnant .>!' some ancient accommodation of this kind at the
Tenth street end, but It Is of no Use
to anybody who has the leasi reaped
for his life, and 1) an eyesore to all
who must view it. If these street
ends were properly dealt with in the
way suggested this would add still
further to the improvement of Front
street.

Sir Edward Grey, at Heham, said
Sir A. A. Hood was speaking in the
spiril of a political wrecker. The
coining parliament, he added, will
possess difficulties which will call for
statesmanship and offer opportunities
for political wreckers, bul these last
will noi come out with credit, or yet
with the confidence of the country.
Respecting Mr. Balfour's criticism
of the navy, Sir Edward Grey said If
there was any difference between
what the government had cone and
Lord Cawdor's program ft was the
fact that sixteen new warships would
be ready in 1912, and they will bo of
a finer and stronger type that if the
original program had teen adhered
to.

to clarify the meaning of the rules,
there  were  few  alterations.
Wild pitches and passed balls in
future will be classed as errors.
The amount  of  lines for violations
of  rules is  set  forth, and the umpire
also is given power to clear the bench
of substitute players expressing disap. i
proval  of decisions.    The substitutes I

A coacher's box extending 15 feet
from the bases is provided.
Fioul strikes are designated "illegally  batted balls."
No change can be made in the batter's box by a batter after a pitcher
is  ready  to  deliver  the ball.
A ball passing an intielder and hitting an umpire on foul ground permits a runner all the bases he can
get, but if an umpire is hit by a ball
no runner can score unless forced by
other  baserunners.
The batting order must be delivered to the umpire at the plate just
before the game by the two captains.
The order must be retained throughout the game unless a man is taken
out.
Umpire will make rulings on coaching violations or discoloring the ball
in their own judgment, without waiting for captains to notify them.
Ground rules and calling games to enable teams to catch trains must be
announced by the umpires. He also
will call the game on account of rain
when occasion warrants. When teams
from the east, playing in the west, or
vice versa, agree upon a certain time
to stop play that they may catch
trains, they must start the game at
least three and one-half hours before
'heir  train  leaves.
Whenever a player is substituted
the captain shall notify the umpire,
who shall announce it to the spectators. Throwing a mask or glove at

At the close of the Franco-Prussian war a hasty conference wa��
held by the German leaders to decide upon the aniouiit of indemnity
which should be exacted from.
Prance. Bismarck, differing from
Von Moltke, telegraphed to Berlin
for a financier in whom he had un-
bounded confidence. The man waai
a Hebrew and was for some reason
disliked by tiie ere,it Prussian general. When, therefore, lie pave his
opinion that the amount demanded.
should be so many thousand million
francs Von Moltke exclaimed impatiently:
"AbBurd!   It is too much!"
"1 know the resources of the
French people," eaid the financier
calmly.   "They can pay it."
"It is a monstrous demand 1" repeated Von Moltke angrily. "If a
man had hiynm when the world was
created to count he would not have
reached that sum now."
"And that is the reason," interrupted Bismarck quickly, his eye
twinkling, "that I got a man who
counts���from Moses."
Von Moltke and the Hebrew tried
to look grave, bul both laughed, and
the storm was averted.
The sequel to the anecdote has a
deeper meaning. The financier,
when he received the summons to
the conference, was undergoing
treatment for some affection of the
eyes which required confinement to
a dark chamber! llis oculist warned him that if he obeyed the sum
mons tlte exposure und delay in the
treatment would almost inevitably
result in loss of sight.
He was silent a moment and then
said: "I think that. I nm needed. 1
have no right to consider my sight
I will go."
He went, and the results which
the oculist had feared ensued, lie
became blind for lifo.
Von Moltke, when the story was
told him, said briefly: "I wronged
the man. He lias served his coun-
trv as truly as any soldier on the|
field."
