Monthly Statistics Show Improvement.
Customs Show Increase of Over $20,-
000 Over Corresponding Month
Last Year.
The oft-repeated saying that statistics are uninteresting' does not apply
to the monthly statistical statement
of the land office, reflecting, as lt
does, the progress of tbe city. The
returns for October, made up by the
land registry, customs and crown
timber offices show gratifying increases over the same month last
year. In the land registry office, a
total of 1308 appllcath as yielded receipts to the amount of $11,784.18. as
compare! with $4664.95 from 77 applications ln October, 1910. This is a
fairly reliable Indication of the Increase in the value ot land, for whereas the applications have Increased
barely to twice the number, the receipts are nearly three times as
great. More directly and Immediately
Interesting Is the fact that the figures
for last month show an increase of
about $4000 over the month of September of this year.
Customs Returns.
The customs returns for October
show duty collected at $44,351.01 and
other revenue $3600, or a total of
$47,961.01. This Is an Increase ever
the corresponding month last year of
Crown timber office returns show
double the returns for the same figure
last year.
Building Permits.
Building permits for the month
necessarily show a decrease over
those of the previous month. The
season of the year explains the fact
that there were no large buildings
called for in the permits Issued during the past month, but the permits
showed a goo.i. steady growth in the
resldencn section for the month of
October. Following are the permits
taken out elnco laat Saturday. Which
total $4700:
Miller �� Sewhurst,* r"adSr ? street, -
five room bungalow, $1200.
Thomai Kirk, Henlsy street, storv
and a half frame building, $2000.
George Collins, Fourth avenue and
Ninth street, six room, two story
building. $1500.
Hospital, for the  Insane.
The returns for the month are
follows: In the hospital at the
ginning of the month. 476 males,
females: admitted during the month.
31 males, 9 females; returned from
probation, 1 male: discharged without
probation, 7 males; discharged on
probation, 9 males, 6 feTia'es; died,
3 males, 1 female; escaped, 3 males;
in the hospital at the close of the
month, 486 males, 184 females; on

Romance of the Sale of a Little Property in the  Royal  City-
How Profits Accrue.
in Imperial  Powder Company at
Chehalis Takes Toi'  of Lives,
All  Women.
Yesterday D. D. Bourke, of New
Westminster, sold nine lots on the
west side of Twentieth avenue and
on the south side of Eighth avenue,
for about $750 apiece.
This, of course, in Itself Is In nowise remarkable���that Ta to say in
the ordinary course of events It ls
not worth a place on the front page,
Ten years ago a man of the name
of Robert Reid. who was then a struggling limb of the law for If hc wasn't

attended an auction sale of a bunch
ef lots In this very locality. The
lots were then being soli by the land
office because their owners were delinquent in taxes. Reid, as a speculation, bought a block of them at an
average price of 15 cents apiece.
Within a very few hours this bud
ding millionaire with remarkable acumen, and exhibiting a germ of financial genius which was abnormal, doubled hls money, and sold bis recent
purchase for the magnificent sum of
about 45 cents the lot.
Mr. Reid after that in all probability entirely forgot about the transaction, for doubtless the call of the law
was upon him.
But���He had pinned hls faith to
these lots, and he had, in one transaction concerning them, made one
hundred per cent, on his money.
And this fact burned in the dim recesses of his brain, the calls of the
Blind Goddess notwithstanding.
'   And Mr. Reid came back.
Yesterday at Mr. Bourke's sale he
repurchased two ot his original lots
at $750 apiece. He has replnned hts
faith to the same old property, and
doubtless this time he wit) hold on.
Mr. Bourke bought hts - property

The license laws came ln for vigorous discussion at the meeting of the
City council last night.
The question came up as a result
of the resolution from the Local Option league which was submitted at
the last meeting of the councll and
held over for a week, asking the
council to endorse a resolution to the
following purport:
"The municipal council of New
Westminster agrees to the amendment of the Municipal Clauses Act,
giving power to municipalities to reduce the number of li juor licenses
w|thln the municipality on a
plebiscite by a majority of the votes
cast; the said plebiscite to be taken
on a petition signed by 15 per cent,
of the said electorate."
Alderman Lynch moved that the
resolution be referred to the meeting
of the Union ot Municipalities to be
held at Victoria, November 15 and 16.
Alderman Johnston approved ot
the resolution. He thought majority-
rule should be followed ln licenses
and ln everything else.
Alderman Lynch said he thought
that during the next few years the
number of licenses would have to be
increased instead of reduced In New
boots various athletes wear and a
resolution was made that the parks
committee should report. The councll was waiting for that report.
Alderman Dodd moved that football

Alderman Gray seconded. He asked whether the councll had any power
to prevent tbe playing of football on
Queens park.
The mayor said the council could
stop defacement of the park. He Instanced tbe notice "keep off the

Alderman Lynch said there was
some friction between the tw > asso
ciatlons. amateur and professional.
He was trying to get them to arrange
practice nights. He would not like
to see them at Queens park. The
other grounds were much better
suited for football playing.
Mayor Lee: "The solution is that
the parks by-law be passed to get the
parka Into proper shape."
Alderman Lynch moved that the
matter be taken up by the parks
committee at a future date. To pass

Alderman Dodd said the principle
involved in the resolution appealed
to blm. He would like to see tho
principle of Initiative, referendum and
reform applied not only to this, but
to every other question.
Alderman Johnston, replying to
Alderman Lynch, said he hope.l the
time would never come when he
would have to vote for more liquor

AMerman Bryson asked if Alderman Lynch proposed to bring this

Alderman Lynch said he did, and
for tbe moment the question dropped.

Ten species of wood are used In
the manufacture of shingles ln Canada, of which cedar is tbe most important Reports received by the
forestry branch at Ottawa show tbat
over nine-tenths of the two billion
shingles produced ln Canada during
1910 were of this species anl that

consumption Of spruce and white pine
has decreased suddenly in. 1910, 82
per cent less ef the former being
made than in 1909. and scarcely one
fifth the usual amount of white pine
being produced. Nova Scotia and
Quebec cut most of the spruoe shingles. The white pine shingles are
mostly of the species Pinus montlcola
and are cut in British Columbia
Nearly three million more of hemlock shingles were produced ln 1910
than during the year previous and of
the total of fifteen million pieces,
over nine-tenths was produced ln Ontario and Quebec. The above four
species furnlehei over 98 per cent, ot
tbe wood used ln shingles. Balsam,
douglas fir and Jack pine, although of
less Importance were used during
1910 In incresslng quantities and for
the flrst time, tamarack and red pine
were reported as shingle wood. There
was less fluctuation in the value of
the species than formerly. Balsam
shingles were tbe cheapest at $1.48
per thousand and tamarack the most
expensive at $2.49.

Peking, Nov. 1���The appointment
of Yuan Shi Kai today as premier of
China will be followed by a cessation
of hostilities on the part of the Imperialists and the o;enins of negotiations with General Ll Yuen Heng,
leader of the revolutionists at Hankow.
An Imperial edict providing for important administrative changes also
accompanies the resignation of the
ministers, but until Yuen Shi Kai returns to Peking, Prince Chlng will
continue to perform the duties of
premier nnd the present cabinet will
remain in office.
All the ministers attended a secret
session of the national assembly today, which, it is understood, virtually
agreed to the demands of the disaffected Manchus troops. A member
of the war board was appoints^ to
confer with the troops and express
tbe assembly's views.
The assembly also discussed the recent loan for which arrangements had
been made with a Belgian and
French syndicate. The ministers explained that the loan was needed for
carrying on fleld operations. The assembly thought there was a good
prospect of the termination of hostilities and ln that case the fund
would not be necessary, tt was
finally decided to refer the matter by
telegram to Yuan Shi* Kai.

Italian numerical gains.

London, Nov. 1.���The Imperlal Durbar, for the purpose of making known
the solemnity of the coronation of
King George V. as Emperor of India,
promises to be one of unparalleled
magnificence, surpassing the long series of pageants that mark the gorgeous history of Hindustan. The King,
as already announced ln The Joural,
will sail from Portsmouth on November 9, in a vessel especially fitted
for the royal party, and the actual
ceremonies of the Durbar will take
place on December 12. Festivities and
ceremonial functions will, however,
prolong the Royal visit until January.
Assembly of Warships.
One or two interesting functions
will mark the passage through the
Mediterranean and Red Seas. There
will be an assembly of warships of
the Mediterranean command at Gibraltar and Malta to greet the Royal
travellers, and It is thought likely
that there will be an exchange of
compliments somewhere ln��the neighborhood of Malta between King
George and King Victor. In the Suez
Canal it is also probable that the
Khedive and Lord Kitchener wlll go
on board the Royal vessel to pay
their respects to his majesty.
The Delhi Celebration.
Bombay wlll be reached early in
December, and the first important
event of the tour will be the welcome
given to the King-Emperor on his
landing. No time will, however, be
lost on the journey northwards, for
the state entry Into the ancient capital of the Moguls ls fixed for December 7. This will be cne of the most
imposing ceremonies connected with
the Durbar celebrations. Their majesties will detrain at Sellnsarh.
where ln the surrounding camp will
be assembled all the ruling princes
and official representatives of every
province, state and agency in  India.
His majesty, according to the official arrangements, wlll himself ride
through the "Shadl Darwazda." or the
"King's Gate," an historic passage
used only by the great Mogul Emperors. Lord Hardinge, the Viceroy,
and the members of hiB council will
receive the King-Emperor at the fort,
the inner fortified citadel, which till
the mutiny was the residence of the
Emperors anl the home of the dazzling peacock throne, cne of the wonders of the eastern world. Here,
also, one of the most historic ground
in all India, "on the edge of that plain
of Paniput, on which Empire has
more than once been lost and won "
the King-Emperor will ascend Ihia
throne and will receive the homage
ot the rulers of over two hundred
millions ot hla subjects.
"If on earth there be a paradise it
tt tttta, it l�� ��i\��'." \* the proud Inscription on the richly gilded, lacquered anil inlaid marble walls, and
the scene that will unfold itself before his majesty���the turbans and
the flowing robes, the spears und the
silver maces, the elephants with their
canopies of state, the gorgeous pulan-
i|uin of the prince nnd the close litter of the nohle lady���will Indeed be
one of splendid magnificence.
The   Great   Camp.
Tho festivities at Delhi will extend over a \ve:>k, And the program
includes an imposing state procession
on the occasion of the people's fete
day. The illuminations, decorations
and firework displays are to be on a
scale never before attempted in India, and a prominent feature of the
celebrations will be the part the children will play.
Some Idea of the magnitude of the
arrangements may be gathered from
the following details of the Durbar
camp. In all there are_ 437 camps,
and the ground covered" exceeds 25
square miles, accommodation being
provided for over 200,000 people. The
whole of this vast space has been
specially levelled and prepared, drainage and water supply systems and
electric light Installation laid down,
and every part of the camp is connected by light railways. A large
central market and three subsidiary
markets have been erected for the
supply of food and other necessaries
at ordinary prices, and In one way
and another an army of over one hundred thousand men have been kept
busily employed for the past Bix
The   Durbar  Itself.
In the presence of the ruling chief!
and the high officials of every province, state and agency, from tha
Himalayas to the Indian ocean, and
from the borders of Baluchistan to
the Bay of Bengal, the Durbar itself
win take place on December 12. To
attempt to describe that brLllan1:
ceremony would prove an Impossible
task. Without doubt It will ho cno
of the most gorgeous and magnificent
Spectacles ever witnessed In thej. gorgeous east. The chief event cf tho
day will bo the reading by the King-
Emperor of a Royal Proclamation.
in which It is expected that certain
"boons' or "concessions" will lie
made to the Indian people In the
form of some remission of taxation
release of prisoners, and so on.
Slmutaneously the Royal Proclamation will be read in every town and
village throughout India.
The musical arrangements for the
Durbar ceremonies are worthy of the
importance of the occasion. There
will be a massed band made up of
seventeen bands from each British
cavalry regiment In India with twenty-two musicians of every regiment of
infantry, British and Indian.
An Investiture on the 14th and a
large conferment of honors will bring
the Delhi program to a close. Then
the King-Emperor goes tiger shooting to Nepal, and the Queen proceeds to Agra. I
Calcutta's  Welcome. ,
After this hunting t'ip In Nepal the,
King,   accompanied   by    the   Queen,
goes  to   Calcutta,  where   th"   splendors or the Delhi Durbar wlll be repeated.    Their majesties   will  arrivo
at Howrah station at tho beginning
of January, and then proceed to
Princeps Ghat.
At Princeps Ghat there wlll be a
brilliant reception by the government. Their majesties will then
drive In procession to Government
House, attended by an imposing escort, through streets which will be
most gorgeously decorated and lined
bv 25,000 school children.
"But the great thing at Calcutta is
to be the Pageant which Mr. Frank
Lascelles Is to organize. The scenes
that will be witnessed will rank
amongst the most dazzling ever seen
In the Orient. The period of history
covered  will extend from the seven-
] teenth century back to the remote
past. The processions alone will be
four miles long, and wlll include two
hundred elephants, and as many camels and dromedaries, and there will
; be no fewer than 6000 performers, all
j attired  in  the most picturesque cos-
Itumes of Indian history.
A   Wonderful   Casket.
' Bombay will give their majesties
an equally memorable reception.
Here there will be a great children's
Iday, an exhibition of Old Bombay,
and naval and military parades.   The
[ Bombay Corporation are having pre-
pared a wonderful casket to contain
1 the Coronation address to their majesties, which Is to cost Rs. 16,000
(about $5120), and the chaslns of
which alone will occupy twenty skill
ed workers over three months. The
government, moreover, havo had
struck 675 000 medals for the school
children of the Presidency, and another one, 175,000 for the children of
the native states.
The celebrations at Delhi, Calcutta,
and Bombay will be on a more elaborate scale than anywhere else, but
throughout, the length and breadth of
India every little community Ib making a united nnd enthusiastic effort
to make the day the most memorable of Ihelr lives.

I mail bag full of letters and appar, nt-
ly   officially   sealed   was   discovered
hidden among the rafterB of the old
postoffice,  where  it  had  Iain  forgotten for over 300 years.
The bag was at first deposited Intact among the state archives, but it
has recently been banded over to the
Imperial Postal Museum, where th''
curator.  Dr.   Sautter,  hns  been  occi.

Sautter has published the results ft
his examination  In the Imperial  Pi.a-
j tal and Telegraph Archives.
The   mail   comprired   175   packages
1 containing in all 272 letters;  in some
j instances several dlffei"nt letters
were enclosed  in one package, either
! for  the Bake  of economy   or  in   the
| hoj>e of greater security.
Moat of the letters were addressed
to persons residing in Aix-la-Cha-
(elle, Cologne and Antwerp besides a
number intended to reach officers
and soldiers of the Spanish army
then operating in the Netherlands.
One can but vainly speculate upon
the disappointments, quarrels and
losses, that may have resulted from
the miscarriage of all these messages. Tbey were no doubt serious,
for in those days letter writing was
too costly and troublesome to be undertaken without real need. Dr. Sautter has classified the letters and published a selection of those that con
tain items of general interest.
The "aviso" or despatch note found
in the bags ls written ln Italian,
though signed by the Spanish postmaster at Milan. It Is dated May
16. 1585. and consigns the mall to resident In Cologne. The letters themselves are dated from various towns
In northern Italy.
It la Impossible now to say how
these letters came to be deposited in
the roof of the Frankfort postofflce,
though there can be little doubt that
it was the result of some mall robbery���which was no uncommon event
at that period. The peculiar fact remains, however, that the thieves se

Berlin, Nov. 1.���While the war between Italy and Turkey has been
rather of tho character of opera
bouffe, It nevertheless ls likely to
have a strong influence on Germany's
naval policy.
Perhaps nowhere are the relative
strength and merits of the armies of
Italy and Turkey so thoroughly well
known as in Berlin, and the best Informed military' men here have no
hestitation ln expressing the opinion,
privately, that had it been possible
to bring the belligerents together on
land that there would have been a
different story to tell.
The war has drawn home to the
minds of the kaiser, and to a greater
extent to the minds of the German
people, the truth of the proposition
that for a nation to be a world power
ln these days a fleet powerful enough
to hold the seas Is Indispensable.
Asa result, the naval program will
be radically extended untll within
the next seven or eight years Germany will have a fleet which will be
able to bold Its own against any sea
force which may be brought against
Another phase of the war in Tripoli which will be watched by German army experts with the keenest
interest will be the use of aeroplanes

Grief at tbe death of her husband and

have been the motives for her act.
The last of the many ronrmtic incidents connected with Fer.linand Lassalle, most brilliant of Jewish
writers, is closed with the death of
the countess.
Lassalle, a wcalthv youth who had
first come Into prominence by bis remarkable championship of the
Countess Hatzfeld. whose cause he
fourht before thirty-six different tribunals, studying law expressly for that
purpose, was the brilliant founder of
German social democracy, and in him
Bismarck found one of the most formidable opponents.

Like many names given hastily or
carelessly, the term ptomain poisoning ls now known to be Inexact, as
generally applied. There are such
things as ptomalns, and they are
poisonous; they are chemical products of decomposition in animal tissue; but the symptoms of poisoning
often attributable to tha consumption of some stride of food, are not
due to them, but to toxins I'ormed by
bacteria. Sometimes these toxins are
in the food before it is eaten, but
often only the bacteria themselves
are there, and lt ls their activity ln
the digestive organs tnat causes the
serious or even fatal 'symptoms usually described as "ptomain" poisoning
This Is brought out clearly in an article contributed to the Hospital
(London, August 19) by Dr. H. J.
Hutcbens, Professor of Bacteriology
in the University of Durham. He
"The term ptomain poisoning is Inexact, because lt leads by Inference
to the assumption that the symptoms
are due to ptomalns, wbile, in fact,
as will be shown, these substances
are not the cause of the disease. The
word ptomain was Introduced by the
Italian toxlcologlst Selmi.to describe
certain chemical substances more or
less allied to the vegetable alkaloids
which bad been found in putrescent
meat and decomposing albuminous
"They are found ln only very small
amounts ln decomposing animal matter, and It is only when meat is in so
advanced a stage of decomposition
as to be totally unfit for human food
that they are presept at all. Moreover, many of the ptomalns are non-
poisonous, and the maorlty of those
that are poisonous exert their Influence on the nervous system rather
then on the alimentary system.
"Food poisoning ls, therefore, the
result W the action of the si.e?ific
toxins of bacteria on persons who
consume meat or other food infected
with living organisms or their toxins,
or both. Tbe non-specific products
should also, perhaps, be inclu led; for
though the evidence so far available
is aglnst the view that tbey take any
part In the production of food poisoning, It cannot be stated as a definitely
ascertained fact that thev never exert any influence. This definition at
once excludes from the category of
food poisoning all cases ��� of poisoning

The News, of Toronto, haa a timely
article on the matter of .employees'
liability, or the fruits ot It, yhtch ls
worth quoting. In part the News
Steps are being taken to secure a
solution of the problem ot wiorkmen'9
compensation, and there appears to
be a strong element in favor of the
system adopted in Englanl. , Every
worklngman wbo Is Injured while following his trade should be entitled to
compensation. This should apply to
the Independent worker aS well as to
the employee. In cases where accidents prove fatal, those dependent on
the victims should receive compensa
tlon. And all compensation should
be paid promptly.
There ls one more axiomatic point
to be considered when framing laws
for workmen's compensation; injured
workmen should receive thc bulk of
what Is paid for their beneflt ami
administrative expehses should form
a very small percentage. Jf th#se
principles be admitted, the' English
eystem as in force today will not ault
Canada. For ln England the Inde-
pendent workman receives nothing,
there is generally considerable de
lay before any compensation la paid
and injured workmen only receive a
small proportion of the money expended for their benefit by employers.
Nearly every employer in England
protects himself against claims by insurance. If a small employer of labor
fails to do this, there is a risk that
he may be unable to meet a big claim
for compensation. If the compensation fund were controlled By a commission composed of representatives
ef workers and employers, acting under the government, an Injured man
could receive necessary relief from
the time of his accident, and the
full measure of compensation could
be awarded with comparatively little
cost for administration. This scheme
would have the additional advantage
of bringing employers and employees
into co-operation, lnstrad   of making i    ~       ��� ���

He stated that those who held the

inadequately provided with a constructive policy held that opinion
rather hastily. He was not gcin,'

mention one or two Herds. There was
the increase of small ownership���not

Madrid, Nov. 1.���In the small town
of Yoste, near Albacte. a terrible
tragedy has just occurred, which has
created a profound sensation. A married woman named Maravlllas Ulas-
quez, about 28 years of age and exceedingly pretty, had for some time
past been annoyed by the attentions
of a cousin named Anlceto Blazquez.
Senora Maravlllas had systematically discouraged him and ordered
him to desist, and finally she threatened to diBclose the fact of his attentions to her husband.
' As Anlceto at this threat ceased to
call at her home, she did not say any-
thing to ber husband, but some time I
ago the husband was lummonel
��w*y trom blm oottasa horae oa business. The cousin thereupon resumed
his attentions. Tlie young wife again
refused to listen to him and evinced
only supreme contempt and disgust
for him.
Some days ago a violent scene occurred between them. Anlceto violently threatening the woman, who
since then had been careful to keep
her house door locked.
On Thursday, however, Aniceto
found some means of entering the
home, and, surprising the young woman, threatened to strangle her If she
resisted him. S. eing herself in danger of InBtant death, Maravlllas ceased to struggle, but swore that she
would have revenge.
In a moment she managed to free
herself from her persecutor, and at
once killed him by stabbing him with
a knife. Then in a state of frenzy
she began cutting the body pieces.
When the police arrived and arrested
her she allowed herself to be led
away to prison quite quietly, but sho
said to her little children. "Never
mind, I shall soon be back If there is
justice on earth."
The murdered man leaves a wife
and eight young children.
county comes second, according to
the survey figures, with a production
of $2,494,793; Ouray third, $2,196,847,
and Lake fourth with $1,213,134. San
Juan County is credited with $710,-
The heaviest Increase in 1910 as
compared with the previous year waB
made in the counties of La Plata, San
Miguel and Gunnison. For the present year La Plata will show a further
increase, as possibly will the other
two. The greater increase will undoubtedly come, however, from the
Cripple Creek district, where the lowering of the water level, through a
practical completion of the drainage
tunnel, has made possible the opening of new ore bodies. Gilpin county
is also advancing steadily, as are
most If not all the gold-producing
counties of Colorado.
The race !>etween these three
states���Colorado. California and Nevada���will therefore apparently lie,
as stated, even closer this year than
ever before.���Tonopah Bonanza.
Athens. Nov. 1.���An   amusing story
is told of King George of Greece and
the payment of his dog tax.    When
the   circular   asking   for  payment   of
the tax  w;..s sent to the king it got
��� lost among ids private papers.   Further advices weie sent to his majesty,
but still no payment was made. Great
was    the    king's  surprise,    therefore.
-when he was informed that a bailiff
-wished to si''iik to him regarding the
-nonpayment  of  liis  tax.    The  bailiff
-was  admitted  to  i he  royal  presence
���and  began reading  a  long  "screed,"
���demanding that his majesty, George I.
of Greece,   should   pay   to  the  royal
office of taxes appointed by His Majesty Georse I. of Greece." etc.. which       ^^^^^^^^^^^^
was interrupted by the kin1: bursting j and the trade unions would suffer   a
Into   laughter  and   promptly    paying   steady decay and hecomc a mere gov-
mp. 'ernment department.
While attention has been diverted
in a measure to other regions, Colorado during the past few years has
gone quietly forward, and, perhaps,
unknown to many, has up to the present held its place as the leader ln
gold production.
The figures compiled by the l'nited
States Geological Survey for t he-
year 1910 give Colorado a production
of 120,607.058; California, $19,715,-
440, and Nevada $18,K78,8t>4.
Doubtless when the  figures for the
present year are compiled it will be
found that an even closer tie is apparent   between   the   three   principal
gold-producing  states.      There   have
been several large sales of gold mining property in California during the
present year, and extensive plans are
being  worked  out  which  will   result
In much greater production next year.
For  the  current   year,   however,  reports  would  not  indicate   any   very
marked Increase in gold production.
On  the other  hand,  both Colorado
and Nevada have shown greater   returns  from "the   established   camps,
which will add to the total output. In
Nevada there are a number of properties   Just  entering   the   list   of   producers.    Wonder, Fairview and Manhattan are each making a greater re
cord    than  in   1910,   with   prospects
much   better  for   the   coming   year.
Other Damps are also coming forward
with greater records, and in all it is |
evident that Nevada will show a material advance this year over last.      [
In Colorado the other camps have
shown a marked activity   during  the j
present year, with rarld extension of j

exist ln regard to the matter of drill
halls and which need Immediate at
tention.   There ls no doubt that urg
ent need ls being felt at present all
through the west, and on the Pacific
coast especially, for Increased accom
modation.    In Vancouver tbe present
hall was erected to   hold    six   companies of the Sixth    regiment,    and
armouries    were    fitted    up for that
number.   Now, however,   the   establishment of that  regiment  has been
augmented by   two   additional   companies  transferred . to    headquarters
from Mew Westminster, making eight
ln all.   The 72nd Highlanders of Canada have been formed with the same
number.   The Eighteenth fleld ambulance with an estabmhment of 102 ot
all ranks, has also sprung Into   existence snd what was originally Intended to hold about three hundred
men    must now do for    about   eight
hundred  and  flfty.    The  Highlanders
have had to find a home ln tbe borse

Sixth    regiment    ure     kicking    like
steers at being crowded out by   the
medical  men.    Altogether lt will be
a great relief to all concerned to hear
that the long discussed new drill hall
Is likely to become "un fait accompli"
especially as one ls constantly hearing rumors anent the promotion of a
mounted unit and an    army   service
corps company.
lt is to be earnestly hoped that
Colonel Hughes will find time to
visit New Westminster and look Into
things here s�� bit. Tbe old drill shed
certainly needs a considerable amount
of reflxing and if the regiment is remodelled on the lines anticipated
(somewhat furtively by those ln tho

philosophically. There are splendid
indications from an athletic point of
view and given a fair show there
should be a good regiment here be
fore many years are out. But, of
course, without support from tbe authorities, and from tbe citizens, nothing much can be done. There are sev
ral adverse conditions against which
the corps Is laboring at present
which must needs be adjusted before
any good showing can result. But
those condition^ will never be noticed
j by the militia department unless rubbed forcibly against their noses. An
ordinary person blessed wltb the
usual range of vision could not see
from Ottawa, or even Victoria to New
Westminster, so one can hardly ex
pect a militia official to do so and
the only way Is to bring these matters so persistently before them that
they can see nothing else. A militia
officer In command of a unit Is very
differently placed from his comrade
ln the regulars. Me bas no reason to
fear officialdom because his living
does not depend on bis appointment,
and what he asks for, if he asks
loudly and persistently enough, will
assuredly be forthcoming.

I hope Colonel Hughes will brave
the wrath of the short-sighted moral
reformers who have screamed themselves Into such power of late, that
they were able' to close up Tommy's
canteen In the mllltla camps, and that
he will reintroduce these excellent
institutions. The amount of crime
brought about by this foolish attempt
to enforce teetotalllsm Is beyond comprehension. I do not think the drunkard ls of any use as a soldier, or as
anything else for that matter, but 1
do think the moderate drinker is
every bit as good a man as the teetotaller, indeed, the probability lg
that he is a firmer character altogether.
By depriving Tommy of his glass of
beer in the camp you send hlm down
town to a saloon where some filthy
rotgut ts served out to blm that soon
lands him into trouble of one sort or
another, whilst tn the canteen be can
come to no harm, and is not allowed
to drink himself Into stupidity, as
he ls generally Induced to do by dishonest  saloonkeepers.
A man cannot be made a teetotaller
by act of parliament. In spite of the
hysterical vapourlngs of the ultra-religious maniacs wbo are striving to
shriek themselves into notoriety ln
order that they may continue to prey

Prove Efficient Scouts In Manoeuvers
at   Adjunct!   to   Artillery���Remarkable  Tests.
Paris, Nov. 1.���Whatever may be
the relative strength of the navies of
the world, there Is no question of the
great superiority of France In the
matter of air craft. She not only has
available for war purposes a great
number of aeroplanes, but by far thc
strongest corps of expert military
aviators ln the world. It ls on this
superiority that France rests her supreme confidence ln her ability to
hold her own in any European conflict which may arise. And Bhe means
to maintain ber lead at any cost.
France also has gone'for ahead In
perfecting the aeroplane for military
use. Experiments with aeroplanes
working ln conjunction with artillery
have just been carried out with great
success near Verdun. Commanders
of batteries who could not locate the
enemy owing to hills In front made
signals1 to tbe aerial scouts hovering
above them. Tbe latter swooped
down and dropped written descriptions and sketch maps of the position of the enemy's main body. Tbe
guns were thus enabled to open accurate flre on great bodies of troops
completely invisible to the gunners.
Marks Epoch In War.
The commander-ln-ch'.ef of' tbe
First Army Corps said to the gunner*
after these experiments: "Gentlemen, remember this date. It marks
the greatest step forward In our artillery methods tor many years."
An armored aeroplane has just1
been tested at the military camp at
Chalons. It is Intended for service
with the French army, and has been
very strongly built. From tip to tip
of the wings lt measures 50 feet, Rs
length is 36 feet, and surface measurement 56 square yards. The pilot
and his passenger are protected by
an armoured turret which has loopholes and spaces at the bottom enabling the pilot to see his way
Though the armor ls only of aluminum, which would not resist a rifle
bullet, lt ls considered to afford relative protection to the aviators and
the motor.
Used fer Inspection.
General Roques, chief of the Aeronautical Corps, of the French, army,
made a tour of inspection by air of a
number of army aviation centers
near Paris. The general flew in a biplane piloted by Captain Fteve to the
Etampes military airmanship center.
Captain Marie, acting as guide te his
chief, flew in another biplane piloted
by Lieutenant Cheutln. Two aeroplanes left 8t.f Cvr at 4:46 a. m. and

The Promoters In Charge ef ths Qreal
Imperial Shooting Matches Provide Prises for Every Sort of Skill
In Marksmanship From Moro Beginners to Old Seasonsd Experts-
Miniature Rifle Competitions.
Fittf years ago the National Rifle
Association was founded to encourage
rifle    shooting    amongst    volunteer*
I throughout   the  British  Empire.    In
; that year���1860���the number of prises
: offered   was   sixty-seven,   the   total
; value of  which  amounted  to  ��2,238.
! Last year the total had reachel s'.SSS,
valued at no less than ��15,602 12s. 6d..
an increase which proves the popularity of the N.R.A. meetings.
j    While, however, the primary object
of the N.R.A. was to encourage shooting amongst service men, it has alio
offered   every encouragement   to the
civilian   rifleman.    There   are   some
fifty competitions   for   revolver   and
rifle shooting open   to   all   comers-
ladies  as   well    as   gentlemen���with
prizes  rang ng  from  10s.   to  ��30 and
��4(1 each.    Further   still,  there   ara
competitions for beginners.    There Is
th.>   Revolver   Tyro   Competition,   for
instance,  in  which,  for  an  entrance
feu of 2s., competitors stand a chance
of winning canes of revolvers valued
at from ��0 to ��8.   In another revolver
tyre  competition   cash   prises   to  the
extent of ��30 are offered for the same
entrance  (ee.  six shots in each case
bein:; allowed, at a distance of 20yd?.
from  a  stationary target.
'   tor beginners in ritle-shooting there
is  the  Spectators'  Rifle  Club's  Tyro
Competition, in which the first prise
is tive rilles, and the Handsworth Tyro   Competition,   in   which   the   first
prize is a rifle and ��20.   In the latter
competition 100 prizes, valued at ��180.

Perhaps one of the most interesting
Bisley competitions for civilian members of rifle clubs is that for the Donegal Challenge Cup. Every year the
National Rifle Asociatioh present to
the best shot in every rifle club in
.the kingdom what is known as the
Donegal! badge, and it is only winners
<if thes.' badges who may compete for
th- Challenge Cup and the 12*2 other
prizes, ranging in value from ��1 to
��11), ami gold and silver badges. The
winners are decided on the aggregate
.points scored at 300 yards and 600
���yards, seven shots being allowed at
the the first-mentioned distance and
;ten at the latter. The entrance fee ii
five shillings.
Altogether there are six special competitions open to miniature rifle sh.it-,

Air Sickness.
Most everybody knows about seasickness, u;:d its kindred woes tUHt
couii from riding in trains or clithb.tig
mountains, but very fe.v know wnut h
is to be airsick, tne av.ator'a ailment.
.vir sickness, as experienced by aviators, is quite different from ordinary
iiibuntain sickness. It is well known
tnat many mountain climbers experience a certain sickness wiieu reucn.ng
an elevation of O.O^u feet.
Aviators   ��k   a'ffeeted   in   a   similar

are the "Two-Twenty" and the "Hind
head." which prizes ranging trom 5^
to ��5 are ottered, the entrance fee in
each case being ls. The popularity ol
,thes.> competitions may be judged
from the fact that last year there were
343 entries for the "Hiwlhead" and
400 for the "Two-Twenty."
In regard to the service rifle eompe-
tions, it is interesting to note that no
fewer than 1,195 crack shots entered
for the King's Prize last year. The
entrance fee is 258., the prizes, ol
[which tbere are 400, amounting to
��2,220. The lowest prize is �����-' and the
highest ��250, given by His Majesty,
and a gold  medal.
This competition is open only to
Territorials and retired Territorials,
but there are several others in whicli
good prizes are offered, nnd whicli are
open to all coiners. The civilian who
fancies his skill with the service rifl?
.might, for instance, enter the Stock
Exchange competition, which Is open
to all British subjects, the entrance
fee being but 5s. 'i nere are 1H8 prize-
to be won in this competition, the
lowest being ��1 and the highest ��20
Nearly 1.300 competitors entered this-
com petition last year, and ther.' were
over 1,200 entries for each of Tne Daily
Telegraph and Graphic Cups. In e:ic'n
of these competitions, which are open
to all comers, 131 prizes are off Ted,
valued at ��350; so t,iat, there is plenty
of scope for prize winners.
Another excellent competition is th"
Alexandra, In which ��1,000 is divided
into 325 prizes. Any man can entei
by paying an entrance tee ol one
gljiuea, and is allowed seven shuts ut
200 yards and 000 yards respectively
Many riflemen enter the four competitions���the Alexandra, Daily Graphic,
Daily Telegraph and Graphic���in order to try und secure the ��250 chai
lenge cup which is offered to the competitor whose respective scores in the
four competitions muke up the highest aggregate. There ara 124 additional prizes offered in what it
'known us the "All Comers' Aggregate."

fit pay tlie civilian ritleinan of average
j.skill to expend money in entrance fees
{in these competitions  in the hope oi
��� winning a pound here and there!   It
all depends, of course,  on the man's
j skill   with   the   rifle.     He  must   be  a
I bit   above  the  average if  he  intends
to clear his expenses. A skillful shot
can not only do tins and have an enjoyable time at Bisley, but may return
with   ��15  or   ��20  in   liis  pocket;  ior,

"You Ars So Different."
Fancy not that the flirt is brainless.
She must have the wits of the wisest.
else her prey escapes. She is to each
man what that man most adores. It
he is dull, she is not too bright. If he
is clever, she must sparkle. It he is
bookish she reads all the day that she
may modestly display knowledge
when he calls at night and. drawing a
beloved volume trom his pocket, begins to tell her of his vellum-bound
treasures. If he loves horses and
dogs she dares not tell him of her
motor-cur. Should he chance to say
that woman, like the angels, should
dress in white' she appears only in
snowy raiment. To b<; so keen and
tactful requires something more than
mentality, it calls for the intuition of
a witoh and the depths of a philosopher.
The flirt must have a sense of
humor, but this she must keep concealed. The first sentence in man's
primer ot love-making is: "You are
so different," and even though the
jok:.' maker and the librettist of the
ccinic opera have endeavored to show
man that woman is wise to the emptiness of this remark, man still uses it
shamelessly. If a woman follows her
impulse s'.ie will laugh. She will say
that little Sammy whom she loved at
the tender age ol seven began his conquest by savin?: "You ain't like th'
other girls." That would offend. It
would place man in an unflattering
light. He would appear as if mitiu-
'iriginality. And that is what he is.
One man's love making is a carbon
copy oi another's and thnt is the
pleasure of flirting. One seeks alway.-

His Proclamations.
A divorce trial in Paris which was
decided a few weeks ago broug.it to
iignt tnis remarkable situation: The
nusbund, a bank employe, decided in
I'jua to cease speak,ng to his wife
and to make lus wisues known by
"proclamations" which he fattened t. ���
the wall of tneir liv.ng roo(ii. The
tirst of them was to tne effect tnat
tyrery husband should pay Ids share
of tne living expenses, but uo more.
"1 snail pay my half; my wife mu-t
pay her snare," he wrote. "To prove
expense account correct, bids must
be shown, 1 shall take my meal.-
out of the house and when inclined to
ei.t at homt snail provide the material and do the cooking." The proclamations also contained lectures on
moral questions and threats of pun
isnuient. According to tne deposition
ol tne wife, tne last one read, "Adele,
I'm going away." The Court gave the |
woman n< c freedom.
A  Very   Pertinent  Question.
An Irishman on his way home at
right was in the habit of cutting
through a cemetery in order t<5 shorten
the distance. A group of his friends
evolved a scheme to have some fun at
his expense. Accordingly they found
a sunken grave across which his path
lay. dug it out and covered it with
boards in such a manner that he must
fall into the yawning cavity.
The Irishman oame along nnd everything happened as per schedule. While
he was still squirming about in the
bottom of the hide, striving to extricate himself, three or four of his
friends, attired in white sheets and
other ghostly accoutrements, suddenly
made their appearance. Pat wa-
frightened out of his wits nnd almost
fainted when one of them said:
"What are ycu doing in my grave?"
Tho tone was sepulchral. It made
the Irishman's hair stand almost on
end. but he could not forego a witty
"Faith', and what are you doing out
of it?" lie asked.
