Peking, Oct. 31.���Fighting between
the rebel forces and Imperialists continues. It is believed that the rebels
are making a determined resistance.
Late advices Indicate that Hankow
was not retaken by the Imperialists,
although General Yin Tchang captured the railway station to the
north. Contrary to promises, the
railways has not been resumed, nor
bas the telegraph communication
been re-established.
The fact that correspondents with
Yin Tchang have sent no worl from
the field in two days may indicate
that the censor will not permit them
to report unfavorable news.
There ure serious, dangers along
the railway line between the war

Dowager Empress, bad fieri from the

had been lost.
Shanghai. Oct. 31.���Concentrating

the fleet of Admiral Sail Chen Ping,
the Chinese rebels today forced the
Imperial warships ten miles down
the river, and recaptured HankOW
after desperate fl-litlng. necordlhg to
d'spatches received here.
These despatches say the battle
opened by the liu, erialltta miking a
rush against t!ie rebel position, from
which they were beaten back with
great sis .ghter. When the fleet steamed up to join in the attack on the
rebels, the batteries of the latter
were unmasked and sflffl an.l shell
rained on tin .nvvnment warships
They ramalned j roply only n few
mTfiutes'. and some f Llvm crippled,

While few details of the latest
battle were contained in the despatches received here, enough was
sent to show that it must have been
a desperate affair. More than 35,000
men are reported to have been engaged on both sides, and there is
little doubt from the nature of the
attack and the grounl on which lt
was fought, thnt the casualties will

Two Challengers    Are    Rejected    by
Bench Who Accuses Defence of
Los Angeles, Oct. 31.���Judge Walter Bordwell accuse! the defence in
the McNamara murder case yesterday
of trying to circumvent bis ruling,
and rejected two challenges against
talesmen which formed the basis of
his supposition.
He also refused to tbe defence the
privilege of challenge against a juror
who said he would not convict a
prisoner In a capital case on circumstantial evidence alone, holding that
this challenge was available only to
the state.
Under these rulings the jury box
contained at the close cf court last
night three men passed for cause by
both sides, in addition to the four
who qualified when tho day's session
opened. To both of the court's main
rulings Attorney Clarence S. Darrow
took exception In behalf of his client.

Chief Justice Hunter in Lucid Summing up Instructs Jurymen that Circumstantial is Often More Cogent Than
Direct Evidence���Jury Disagreed Once and Were Asked
to Reconsider.
The hearing ln the McWaters case
closed yesterday afternoon. Counsel
for the defence and counsel for the
crown each made his address, after
which his lordship, Chief Justice
Hunter, In chargingthe jurymen,made
one ot those masterly analyses ot
evidence which have been an outstanding feature of tbe assizes. Tho
Jury retired between five an! six
o'clock and returned two hours later.
They reported that they could not
agree on a verdict. Hls lordship asked them to retire again till nine
o'clock. They did so, and returned a
verdict of "not guilty."
Mr. J. P. Hampton Bole, counsel for
the prisoner, pointed out the flaws
ln the case for the crown. Mr. W
Norman Bole, counsel for the crown,
directed the attention of the Jury to
the points of significance iq the evidence, and ended his address with
the words, "God schaw the right."
The chief justice, ln charging the
jury, reminded the jurors that if h<��
made any remarks as to the Infer-
ences which should be drawn from
the evidence it was to be clearly understood that the Jury was ln no
sense bound by those remarks; tbat,
in fact, the law required them to
plice their untrammeled construction
upon the evidence.
The prisoner was charged with
writing, sending or uttering a letter
io Townsend. ex-chief of pollce of
Burnaby, threatening to murder him.
This was a very serious offence, for
which the penalty provided by the
code was ten years' imprisonment.
This was the maximum penalty,
which me;int that a judge could impose any penalty he saw flt, up to len
years' imprisonment. Ills lordship re-
each word. In the next place the
style was almost identical. There
waa the constant use of the letter
v for the letter u. The g's throughout
this bundle of ten were formed ln
exactly the same way, not in accordance with the form usually followed, but each having a peculiar
curve more or less to tue left of tbc
letter. In the case of the letter y
there was no loop at the bottom, and
tbe letter k was accompanied by a
Also, the terryfying symbols were
the same���the pierced heart, and the
skull and cross bones, and an examination of these, particularly of
the skull and cross bones, would show
tbat tbey were made by tbe same
person in all the letters. If the Jurymen settled in their minds that the
same person wrote these letters
known In the case as exhibits 13 and
2, he would like them to go further
and consider exhibits 4, 5 and 27.
These letters, unlike the ten letters
to which he had Just referred, had
not been written In print, but in
script. He thought very brief consideration would satisfy them that
the writer was one and the same
peraon. They found in all the letters
tbe expression bon mafia; the French
word mort, meaning death, also appeared. They also had the same pictures, so much so that one might
readily conclude they came from the
same stamp.
If the Jurors got so far as to conclude that it was the same person
who wrote these three letters in
script print and those ten in print,
they had then to consider who wrote
the letters on the jelly jars. They
had  heard  the wife of the accused

Vienna, Oct. 31.���Danger of a clash
with Italy, which may set all Europe
aflame with war, is considered most
alarming here in government circles
today. The Italian reserves in Tripoli
and the imminence of anti-militarist
and anti-mcnarchlcal outbreaks ln
Italy are believed to have caused the
Italian ministry to "lose its head"
with the great danger that all Europe
may.be embroiled.
Austria ls gravely concerned over
Italy's announced intention to conduct a naval demonstration in Turkish waters ln open d?flance of Aus-
tria'a warning. It is understood
Rome has been asked to explain, ani
that In case the explanation is not
satisfactory an ultimatum may be
sent from Vienna.
While African war news so far received here has heen meagre, there
is apparently no doubt that the Turks
bave reoccupied the outskirts of the
city of Tripoli. It is reported that.
5000 Italians have been lulh cl and
.hat 7000 are the prisoners of the
Turks. These reports are credited
If Tripo'i has been re-captured, it
is expected that the Turks will mas-
&ii"re every Italian in the city. The
Italians massacred all the Turks la
Tripoli, including women ani children. Just before the Turkish attack
began and tbe Moslems are believed
sure to retaliate with the slaughter
of every living subject of King Victor
Emmanuel, should the city again fall
into their hands.
The Gioinale d'Halia of Rome, in
an extra edition today, says that.
Italy Is to mobilize 100,000 reinforce-
merts tor immediate despatch to
Tripoli. It is reported that nearly all
thn troops now en route to Tripoli ara

irms in the face of the ienemy.

Missionaries' Princely Pay.
The harassed minister and his wife
have  a   bard   battle   to    make   ends
meet;    the   salary   is  always   small;
sometimes  it  is not  all  paid;   often
it   is   long   overdue   before   it   conies
Far different is the lot of the brother
wbo is stationed in China.   He gets ,1
salary of $1500 a year, and since the
purchasing  power   of  money   is   so
much greater in China than it Is on
this  continent,  Dr.  Green  thinks that
it might safely be estimated at three
times as  much.    There   Is  no doubt
that Dr.  Green  is  in  error   on   this
point.      The  average   missionary    in
China  does  not  earn   $1,500   a  year,
and it is doubtful if he can buy more
with his money there than he can in
the United States.    Certainly, things
that   are   considered   common   comforts, even necessities, on this com!
nent are absolutely unpurchasable at
any  price  at  most   foreign   mission
posts.    Moreover,   a  writer   ln   tho
China Mail  said  the  other  day  that
living  was  actually   much   more  expensive to a white man in China than
at home.    The only  cheap  thing   is
hired help, wllich ls cheap because it
is  generally  Inefficient  and   perhaps
A Hint of Graft.
The writer in Hampton's declares
that not only is the foreign missionary well paid for his work, but that
his wife is also frequently remuner
ated, whereas the toiling mate of the
preacher who remains at horn? has to
do nearly as much church work as
her husband and receives bare thanks
for it. On this point he is corrected

work can be tackled, but not before

After that is done, the boxes are
removed to one of tbe strong rooms

time as tho particular room is ready
for them again.
All carpets are carefully cleaned.
First of all, they undergo the vacuum

At cleaning tlm" each of these

So the work gees on from day to

J. WOOD, W.P.,
ls a missionary's wife paid a salary
and then only because she teaches In
the schools. In these cases the missionary is paid the salary of a single
man and his wife the salary of a
single woman. In moat churches salaries to missionaries vary according
to the length of time the preacher has
been at work, and according to
whether lie Is married or single.
Looking over the official list of salaries as submitted by the Advocate,
we are not Impressed by the possibilities of graft, and have every reason
to doubt that the salary alone would
tempt one to the foreign field.
Is the Money Wasted?
"^The* muckraking doctor goes on to
show, or rather to charge, that mosf
of the money contributed to foreign
missions is wasted. He declares it
to be an acknowledged fact that it
takes one dollar to make another
dollar effective in the field. He relates a conversation he had with a
missionary who had spent eight years
in India, who told him that every
dollar that came Into actual practical
use in his work had cost the Foreign Missionary Society three dollars and seventy-five cents to put it
there. Where the great leakage occurs Dr. Green does not say, for he
admits that mission funds are administered with the most religious
honesty and with no little ability Into the bargain. This charge of
wasteful administration is resented
by tb* Christian Advocate, wliich submits figures to prove that as far as
the missions of the Methodist Episcopal church are concerned less than
'.1 per cent of the fund collected goes
in expenses of administration.

Malta Fever In Texas.
Malta fever, wh'ch las about dis-
uppeared In the island from which it
cot its name, is now prevalent in
Southwestern Texas. It is a diseast
characterized by prolonged high temperature���pain and swelling in the
joints and neuritis. It lasts on the
average about four months, but may
bans on much longer. A quarter of
1 century ago British medical officers
proved that, the milk of the Maltese
coat was the carl"r of the diseas?
The island breed of goats had an
African origin, and had brought from
that continent the micrococcus which
made the milk so harmful.
Many years ago the agricultural department,  actuated  by  the desire to
benefit the Texas goat herds, imported some Maltese goats.  Prior to that
time the Malta fever wns unknown In
this country.    Now sufferers from  it
are found along the lower courses of
tbe  Rio   Grande, Pecos   and   Nuecos
rivers,   where   n:oat   herders,   without
the light of  science  to   guide   them
Jumped   at   the   conclusion    that   the
milk  was  the  cause  of  the   disease,
boiled It before using and so escaped.
I Less  prudent users  came down  with
the fever.
The Malta fever, which came from
Africa in a roundabout way. is not a
serious affair after we have found out
the cause and how to avoid infection.
The hookworm, which is a direct importation from Africa, brought over
by enslaved negroes, is another matter. It is being fought vigorously and
intelligently, but it appears that it is
much more prevalent than was supposed at first. To eradicate it will
to the patient labor of years. Texas
can get rid of Malta fever at once by
slauehterine ail the infected goats.���

A little-lieard-of personage is King
George's Inspector of Royal Palaces,
yet he is a most important, official although he is not actually on the
royal staff.
The inspector's duty lies in seeing
that, say, Buckingham Palace is put
into perfect order after royalty has
left London at the end of the season.
This official has to go over every
single aptfrtment in the place, and he
must see that painting and papering
are carried out If required.
He must inspect all windows and
blindB, to see if new cords are want
ed or any repairs needed. All the
watertaps have to be carefully examined, and, if flaws are discovered,
they must be set to rights forthwith.
And, aB to cleaning, it is the inspector's duty to make sure that every
room of the Palace is cleaned out in
the most thorough manner possible;
no slip-shod work will pass the inspector's eagle eye.
Of course, the inspector does not
simply order this and that to be
done. After making up hiB mind
what repairs, papering, painting, etc.,
have to be done, he makes out a full
list, and forwards it to the private
secretary of the king, who places It
before hls majesty and he "approves"
of the recommendations of the inspector,   and   thereafter   the   actual

Who Said
An Eccentric Polish Earl Who faad
Some   Queer   Habits.
Early in llu lust century thera lived in Pari? an eccentric English
Iiobleman, Francis Henry Egerton.
,Earl of llridgewdter. who vug nt
.porte as hs wu* queer. His greut
fortune entitled hini to gratify every
whim. Hnd some of his performance?
���were the talk- of u ety where thing?
have to he more thnn usually bizarre
to attract notice. ��
Egerton was a great reader and, although he had n fine library, frequently borrowed books from his
acquaintances. The return of these
volumes was always an Hffa:r of extraordinary pomp nnd circumstance.
Two stately steeds would be iiarneHS-
ed to an open carriage, upen the seat
of which would repose 'he book, attended by four coachmen, who woul.i
solemnly leave the same at the door
of its astonished owner.
Egerton's love for dogs was hli
most prominent charscteristic. He
possessed any number of them, and
frequently his carriage would ba seen
on the street filled with a yelp:.ng
pack of thoroughbreds. Although
Egerton seldom entertained any ol
his friends Bt dinner, he frequently
had a dozen or more covers laid and
gave un elaborate banquet to his dogs.
Egerton's were so well trained that
they obeyed to the letter a set oi
rules for canine tsble manners laid
down by the master.
Egerton was especially particular
about his boots and kept several
shoemakers busy. He never wore a
pair more than once, but did not discard the old ones. These were ranged
in tows on shelves, und their owner
professed to tell the day of the year
by their state of preservation.
The dogs also had boots, and the
earl paid as much for them as he
did for his own. Every animal wn*
measured snd hsd "lasts" ol its four
feet made.
An Invisible Uniform.
"Probability ol much night fightini?
in future warn gives added value to
the new gray uniform of the German
soldiers," says the Army and Navy
Journal. "V\h:lo this attire proved its
superior invisibility at the recent manoeuvres during tne daytime, it was
in tue night hgnting that us effectiveness was best demonstrated, lu day-

Neither   Youths   Nor   Maidens   Hsve
Much to Say About Them.
Many are thu interesting customs
that characterize the Euroro Indians,
says a writer ia Tht* Wide World
Mugasine. There is the marriage ceremony, for instance. It is really the
mother of the girl v/ho selects her
daughter's future husband, and when
she lias choieu li.ru she invites him
to her hut to partake of a highly-
peppered dish specially cooked for the
occasion. The eligible youth it accompanied by his mother, or, failing her,
by the oldest woman of bis family.
If he feels inclined to marry the girl
presented to him he partakes of the
tood uud then passes it on to his mother. Should sne be likewise inclined
she tastes it, and the marriage ii then
as good as a fait accompli. Should
she be opposed to the proposition,
however, she returns the food to the
girl's mother and the match is off,
even should the young man feel inclined to tie the knot.
On the other hand, if the youth is
not favorably impressed by the daughter of tlie hut he passes the dish on to
his mother without tasting it, saying:
"Mother, give this food to her trom
whom it came."
The mother can do as she likes. She
can touch the food, and then the sou
must marry the girl in spite of his
own feelings. But if she is not keen
on the marriage she pushes the food
across to her hostess and, accompanied by her ion, leaves the hut. It
will thus be seen that neither the
youth nor the maiden have much to
say as regards their own future.
After tlie engagement the tianceV
mother hai to maintain the bridegroom's mother for four dayi. During
this time the youth sleeps in tbe hut
of his future bride, but without being
seen by her. He enters late at night
und leaves before dawn, and the object of his presence ii to protect the
��irl of his tor his mother's) choice
from the machinations of the evil eye
On the fifth morning both bride and
bridegroom get up at the same time
und, approaching the fire. Bit down together, turning their backs on th?
other members of the family. Henceforward tney are man and wife.
A Littla Too Absentminded.
Jimmy Kyan was very absentminded, und uis frieodt loved to tell storiei
of his misadventures. Vou would hear
one morning that Kyan had gone home
the evening before, walked into the
boarding-house next his own under
the impression thai lie was home, had
sat down at the table and had not
aroused   from   his  abstraction   until
bome one hud culled hit attention to
the mistake.
But lhe best story of all was put
over the day after Ryan's wedding.
This was an evening affair.
"They drove away lrom tlie church,"
laid tne narrator, "and over to the
new house that had been all fixed up
for them. When they got to tlie door
Ryan helps her out tenderly und leuds
her up to tho door and talks to her **
minute. Tnen he shakes hands with
her and says, 'Well, good night, Lucy.'
" 'Good night?' says she inquiringly.
" !X.e*i' says he, 'I guess it's time 1
was going hnii.e now.'
"'Why, Jimmy Kyan. you big it,"
sho says, 'wake up. You live here
Customs Officials' Manners.
"German officials stare at you;
French officials scowl ut you; English
officials wink at you. But they all pass
the bugeage," is tiie conclusion ol Gilbert K. Cuesterton, the English writer,
who has recently added to bis experience by passing through the custom
nouses of France, Germany and England, which he describes in The illustrated Loudon News. Noise, confu
sion and clamor prevailed in the
French douane, which was located in
a small, dirty, shed-like room. The
French temperament is soothed by
disturbance, he explains, and tlie customs official's bustling manner does
not mean that he takes bit duty very
seriously, for one gels through quickly
nnd unaurt. French officials ure not
us brutal as tliey seem. German custom houses impressed Mr. Chesterton
as temple-like. The imposing Official!
in unitormi oi a/tthetic peacock green
held his observant gaze. Grim und
silent, they passed him from one large
.partment to another. But it only
seemed like oppression, decides the
tolerant traveler forward. His native
j land received him ut Dover in a man-
I net "confidential and comic."

Get Married.
Dr. Jacques Bertillion. the eminent
French physician, has reached the
conclusion that matrimony is the
greatest aid to longevity. This, he
says, is established by statistics g!ean-
ed from all over the world. A married
man or woman has thrice the chance
of a good long life as a bachelor or n
spinster. In further illustration oi
this contention the doctor shows thnt
the mortality among widowers is greater than the average among married
men. So he recommends them to look
out for a new partner���thnt is, if tliey
ore under 60. This is his advice to
young men: "Marry��you will do well,
even from a selfish standpoint. But
watch carefully over your wife's
health, as even from tliis egotistical
point of view her loss will be a terrible
misfortune, tor your life depends in
a great measure on hers."

are the old standby all over the Maritime Provinces because GIN PILLS really
cure Rheumatism.   An old gentleman in Yarmouth, N.S. says:
"I have been bothered with Rheumatism for the past year and have taken

E. A. Paige Managing Director
Now that we are approaching a
period for the decennial redistribution of the constituencies in the
House of Commons, it might be advisable to give some attention to the
princple of proportional representation, which has been so earnestly and
eo ably advocated by Hon. F. D.
Monk, the present Minister of Public
Works. The rapid growth of our
cities and towns, with the inevitable
reduction ln the representation of
the rural district, makes this question
of representation a vital one. While
the cities will demand increased representation, and will have to have it,
���we may be sure that any attempt to
seriously reduce the representation
of the country at large will meet with
vigorous protest, says the Ottawa
Free Press.
Happily, we art not without practical prbof of the manner in which the'
problem has been grappled with In
other countries. Switzerland, Belgium and Sweden have adopted the
g)rinciple of proportional representation, and, curiously enough, in the
latter country, the Liberal party,
���which opposed the proposal, has been
the flrst to beneflt by it, having won
the recent election by 100 to 65 Over
the Conservatives who introduced
the system.
But we need not go outside the empire to And a system of electoral reform which is worthy of study. Western  Australia  has  just  had  an election   under  new  conditions  designed
to give actual  representation  to the
true  majority of the  people.    There
the  reform  has  taken  the  shape  of
compulsory   preferential    voting,   designed to prevent the blocking' of the
will of the majority by  the election
���of minority candidates.    Past experience has been  there   that  in   many
cases the elected member had a minority  of the  total \\te  cast;   indeed
in   the   last   previous    election    only
seven members out of fifty were re-
1 urned by clear majorities.
To remedy thia state of affairs the
law was amended in 1907 by the addition of a provision for voluntary preferential voting, Every voter was to
mark his ballot 1, 2, 3 in the order of
his preference, but It was found in
actual experience that the average
elector did not exercise his preference, preferring to vote only for the
candidates of his own political faith.
And the election of minority candidates continuing, the reformers asked
that the government should adopt the
system of proportional voting as carried out in Tasmania and as advocated by tho Pi opoi tional Representation society of England.
But before going that far, the government deciiled to give the preferential system another trial and ao made
lt compulsory. Where there are more
than two candidates the elector, under penalty of marking his vote invalid, has to mark his ballot paper
by placing the figure 1 "opposite the
name of the candidate for whom he
votes as his first preference and to
���Rive contingent votes for all the other
candidates on the ballot paper by
placing the figures 2, 3, 4 or aB many
as there are candidates in the order
of his preference. When the votes
are counted, the candidate who has
the least number of first preference
votes is declared defeated and each
ballot marked for bim ls distribute:!
amongst, the candidates next in order
of preference. Thc candidate finally
declared elected is thus sure to repre
sent an actual majority of the votes
But   though   this    system    secures
-majority   representation   it  does   not
Kive  representation  to  the  -minority,
and as a writer in the Westminster i
Gazette comments,  to those  who regard    democracy   us   imperfectly    attained   until   representation   is   complete,  an.l  as  nearly  faultless   as is
humanly  possible, the preferential or
contingent vote will never be wholly
satisfactory.     "True,   it  assures   majority rule, but there is a strong and
growing feeling in all advanced states
that  majority domination   should   be
tempered    by    adequate   representation    of    minorities.        Indeed,    the
faults of the old system were   often
mitigated somewhat by the fact that
minorities     obtained     representation
-where they  were not entitled   to it.
truly, but its existence was a check
on the complete sway of bare majorities.   This ls not so great an evil as
government  by  minorities,  but it is
still an evil."
The conclusion  is  that   ultimately
the proportional voting system, which i
has been successfully tried In Tas- j
mania, will be universally adopted |
throughout Australia, aa It gives',
every considerable group of electors
representation according td" Its elec-'
toral strength and no more.
The subject is one well worthy of ,
study in Canada.   If the Federal Par- j
liament does not feel inclined to give |
the system a trial, it might be adopt- j
td as an experiment   ln one of   the j
provinces,     Ontario      for    example,
where the Liberal minority is by no
meant adequately  represented either !
in   the   House   of   Commons   or   the I
Provincial Legislature   In   proportion
to its electoral strength.    A plank of
this sort in the platform of the Lib-:
eral  party would  undoubtedly   prove |
attractive  to  many  of  the   thinking
section of the people.

New Westminster, B. C,
Oct.   31,   1911.
To the Editor of the Dally News:
Dear Sir���On Nov. 3 the citizens
of New Westminster will be called
upon to vote on a number of by laws,-
among them one for $15,000 to finish
the stock judging and horse show
pavillion at Queen's Park, and knowing that the general public are not
very conversant with the details of
this proposition, I take this opportunity of placing the facts before
them so that they may be able to
vote intelligently.
The fact that  the  greater part of |
the  buildings   at   Queen's   Park   to-1
gether with the bleachers and grandstand were put there by the Agricultural Society, and a great deal of the
land  cleared  and   improved  also   by
them.    The park belongs to the city
of   New   Westminster,   having   been
granted to them by act of parliament,
and the R. A. & I. Society have   the
exclusive   use   of  It   for   one   month
In the year for the purpose of holding its annual exhibition, but notwithstanding   this   the    Agricultural    Society has no title to any of the land,
consequently    they   . cannot    borrow
money having nothing   to   bypothicate
Tbe  stock   judging   pavillion    which
when complete can be used for horse
show purposes is needed to complete
the equipment for our annual exhibition. The provincial government gave
the sum of five thousand dollars to
help  the  society  erect  this  building.
This  money was  spent and  the material is on the   ground   representing
this amount.
There have been a number of propositions   suggested   as   to   the   best
way   of   completing   this   structure.
The R.A. & I. Society have' offered to
pay all the interest and sinking fund ]
that this by?law of fifteen  thousand ;
dollars calls  for,  provided  tbey  have ;
control of the building, and if this bylaw passes the genera! public will not
be called unon to pay ei>e dollar that
it will not be reimbursed by the Agricultural  Society.
It has been suggested by the Board
of Control of the R. A. & 1. Society
at future exhibitions to have a horse
show as the principal side attraction
and to cut out professional lacrosse
that has cost so much in past years.
We tried this horse show feature
this year and it proved a good drawing card, the weather being all that
could be desired.

are boosting Vancouver as our commercial capital. Let Vancouver cut
out the Agricultural part from their

along the Agricultural line; lt will
pay her to do this.
Let us all join In helping each
other; we cannot afford In thii great
west to make a failure of anything.
New Westminster has proved her
ability in this direction and if her citizens are true to themselves they
will get out and put that by-law
through with a large majority.
Thanking you, Mr. Editor, I   am,
Your  obedient servant,
Pres. R. A. & I. Society.
Every citizen who has taken any
notice of the weather at fair times
knows that we hardly ever get all
fine days at this season of the year.
This building complete, most of the
�����tock judging could be done under
the roof, the public would be In a position to be comfortably eeated, and
a great deal of pleasure derived
therefrom as well as much useful information.
Stock judging Is an education in itself when this is done in a convenient building the judges could give
short lectures on the- prize winners
and also explain their reasons for
placing the different animals first,
second, etc.
The Judges are frequently put to
much Inconvenience by having to do
their work out in the open under an
umbrella or a machintosh, and the
onlokers have the same inconvenience to contend with.
I take it that, during the daytime
that there would be no charge for visitors in the building, they having paid
their admission at the gates or with
membership tickets.
But a revenue would have to be
secured in some way, and in the
evenings and at other times when a
bonda fide borBe show was put on a
charge would have to bp made.
The visiting public do not object
neither do our own citizens object to
pay when they get value for their
money. Hone show prizes run into
ipiite a sum and this lias to be secured at the gates. If we do not get
this building It may mean that we
will lose the exhibition. Vancouver
is anxio.is to secure it hut tliey cannot do this if New Westminster Is
true to herself. It would be a sin to
lose oar identity as the Agricultural
Capital of B. C, Victoria is the Political Capital, Vancouver is the Commercial Capital and New Westminster the oldest city of all and with
the district of New Westminster has
done more to bring and to keep agriculture to its present position than
all the rest put together

and tbere is no reason that 1 know
of why we should lose our Identity,
and not continue to be the Agricultural capital of B. C.
We are proud of our sister city.
Vancouver as the commercial capital

ask the management of the Vancouver exhibition to cut out the Agricultural part from their program. They
have tried it on two occasions and
the result has been anything but
satisfactory. Vancouver can run a
horse show, a carnival, a dog Bhow or
poultry show. They have the population at their doors to do this and New

counsel .for the defence was right.
Every investigation of this kind was
accompanied by certain irregularities,
but so long as these did not prejudice
the accused, nothing could be said.
Counsel's Objections.
Hll lordship was about to hand
over the exhibits ;jfi the case to the
jury, when Mr. J. P. Hampton Bole
rose and took exception to the exhibits going In, tn the shape they
now were. The learned counsel for
the crown, he said, had attached
labels to them, one of which contained a nice, concise history of the
case by Townsend. If these exhibits
iwere to be marked, they should have
been marke.;' In oven court. He had
understood these lai e's were only for
the use of the counsel.
His lordship remarked that the
label in question had been read over
to the constable and accepted by him
on oath as true.
Counsel for the defence said that
he too would like to attach a few
labels, in the shape of a precis.
In the end the label objected to
was withdrawn.
Another Objection.
Counsel for the defence snld he
had another objection to make, this
time in regard to the opinion which
his lordship had expressed with regard to circumstantial evidence.
Counsel read Taylor on circumstantial evidence, quoting that In the
opinion of this legal authority the
question is not whether the circumstances are consistent with the prisoner's guilt, but whether they are in
consistent with any other interpretation.
The Chief Justice: "If my memory
serves me right I used practically
the same words, that If the facts in
the evidence unite in pointing to one
conclusion the jury should not object
to that conclusion limply because it
was formed on circumstantial evidence."
The Jury retired and returned after
two hours' absence without having
heen able to agree. Asked by his
lordship to resume consideration of
the case they retire,! and at the enl
of two and a half hours brought in
as stated, a verdict of "not guilty."
A charge of forgery will be beard
against the prisoner at thr next, assizes.

The annual report of the director
and principal libarian of the British
Museum for last year shows that the
number of visitors was 789.837, which
was not quite equal to that of 1908,
the year of the Franco-British exhibition, when the aggregate was the
highest recorded.
Last year 670,10-1 visited the museum on week days, the highest figure since 1005; while the Sunday
total of (59,733 is the highest on record, with the exception of 1908, when
so many foreigners were ln London.
Great progress has been made on
the extension building, the main external structure having been almost
completed, while plans for the internal furniture and fittings were prepared. As many as 374 782 separate

Expect   Congress   Will   Take   Action
With   Regard   to   Fixing   Panama
Canal   Rates.
Washington, Oct. 31.���An Import
ant question to come before Congress
for definite action next winter will be
that relating to the tolls to be
charged vessels passing through the
Panama Canal. Colonel Goethals
culls attention to the fact that this
work cannot be postponed longer
than next session, and it is understood that the Piesident will emphasize its importance in liis annual message.
It will not be an easy task to figure
out this question of tolls, for traffic
arrangements affecting a great world
highway always are intricate and tedious in the making.     The president
Fcllowing is tbe clause of the treaty
upon  which this claim  is based:
"Tbe canal  shall  be  free and open
to   the   vessels  of   commerce  und  of
war   of   all   nations   observing    these
'tiles, cn terms of entire equality, so
that tliere shull be no  discrimination
against  any  such  nation, or Its citizens or subjects in respect of the conditions or charges of traffic, or otherwise. Such conlitions and charges of
traffic  shall be just  and equitable.'1
Views of Ship Advocates.
The   advocates   of   free   American
shins in the canal reply to the foregoing  section  from   the  Hay-Paunce-
fortn treaty by saying tbat the United
States, as the builder and owner of
lie canal, has tire undoubted right to
do as it pleases toward Its own shipping,     and    cannot    successfully    be
charged  with  discrimination ns long
as it collects tolls from foreign ships
on  terms of entire  equality,  and   so
long, further, as those charges are, in
the language of the trdity, "just and
This view of the c,ise is sustained
by the fact that in the Clayton-Bul-
wer treaty the canal was to be open
to foreign vessels on like terms with
American   vessels,   while  the  present
agrees with Colonel Gothals that if
the canal is to do its expected work I treaty this provision is omitted. The

two  coast, lines,  congress  should   Hx
the tolls without delay.
Some of the questions which will
come up when the legislation is put
under way are already appearing.
For instance, there will be a strong
demand from various parts of the
country that American ships be permitted to use the canal without the
payment of tolls. Of course, there Is
no way at this time of knowing how
a sugestion of that kind will strike
congress. If the tolls are not remitted, there will be a strong demand for
the remission of tonnage dues for
American ships at the least.
$1 Ton Rate Suggested.
There has been a tentative suggestion, in which both the President and
Colonel Goethals have acquiesced,
that the tonnage charges be fixed at
tl a ton, which wouid be somewhat
below tlie rates charged for th" use
of the Suez canal. It is argued In support of such a rate that it would attract much business now going by
way of Suez to the Orient.
But, as hinted above, even this
charge will be lifted from American
ships, if the arguments in that direction can be made to prevail. It is
pointed out. in suppoit of this free
use of the canal by ships of American
registry that the canal Is intended
primarily to benefit the United States
both in times of war and of peace,
which, being true, special favors
should  be  shown  American  shipping.
Of course, tlie foreign ship interests strongly oppose this proposed fa-
orltism to American vessels. These
Interests contend thai the Hay-Paun-
1 tieaty grants the same rights

rati ���������   to   the   latter    would
sent treaty, the right to fortify was
asserted by American government
and conceded by Great Britain without question. By similar reasoning,
it Is argued, since the provision imposing "like terms" on foreign and
American vessels is omitted, it is contended that the right to pass American vessels through the canal without cost may be concede;!, so long
as the vessels of foreign nations are
all treated alike in the matter of

Salvation   Army.
Sunday a    large    congregation    of
S. A. comrades and the general pub
lie attended the "farewell" service in
the Salvation Army Citadel to Cadet
Phillpot, who leaves for the Toronto
training college on Wednesday.   Cap
tain     McLean,   Sergt.-Major   French,
Comrades Dunlop, Niles, Morgan and
others referred in eulogistic terms to
the young aspirant for commission?-!
rank    in    the   army,   and   fervently
wished him "God Speed" in the high
purpose  of  his  future  career.    Captain   McLean,  incidentally  mentioned
in her valedictory remarks, that Captain  Falrhust, so long  her coadjutor,
who   lately   "farewelled"   prlcr   to   a
furlough     in     Kngland,    had     seni
through her a kindly message of re
membranes  to  her  fellow   comrades
and    friends    In    New   Westminster.
Tbo reference was warmly appreciated   hy tbe   congregation  with whom
Captain   Fairhurst   was   highly   popular antl greatly esteemed, both in the
crmy ami in external circles.
It is easier to preserve the color of tbe i fl
hair than to restore it. although it is'-
possible to do both. Our grandmothers
understood the secret. They made a
"snge ten," antl tlieir dark, glossy hair
long after middle life wns duo to this
fact. Our mothers have gray hairs before they are fifty, but they are beginning to appreciate the vision of our
grandmothers in using "snge tea" for
their hnir and are fnst following suit..
