Native   Sons   Admit   Judge
Howay to Order.
Next  Meeting  Will   Entertain  Senior
Lacrosse Club���Last Night Had
Banquet, Speech and Song.
At a most successful meeting last
night Post No. 4 Native Sons of
British Columbia reaolved upon the
admission of the flrst honorary member. Tho gentleman whom the post
has decided to honor thus is his
honor, Judge Howay. The meeting
was one of the best ln the history of
the post, members being present to
the number ot 50. One initiation and
one application for membership were
disposed of.
Alderman Johnston, grand treasurer
of the Post of British Columbia and
treasurer of the local post, spoke of
the very excellent address delivered
by Judge lloway on tbe occasion ot
the unveiling of the Simon Fraser
monument, and moved that the judge
be made an honorary member of the
post. This was seconded by Past
Chief Factor Matthew J. Phillips, in
a few apposite and commendatory remarks, and  passed  unanimously.
His honor, Judge Howay, will be
asked to be present at the next regular meeting of the post, to be received by the chief factor and welcomed by the members.
Arrangements have been made for
calling the post together at 7:30 next
meeting night. The meeting will be
'largely devoted to the senior lacrosse
team, as entertaining the boys
is an annual event, and the fact that
they did not succeed ln winning the
cup this year is to be no deterrent to
the post's recognizing their excellent
services to sport and to British Columbia. The amateur lacrosse association and officers will be Ibe guests
of the post at a whist party, proceedings beginning at 8:30.
At last night's meeting, after the
post closed, the memhers sat down
at the banquettlng table. A most enjoyable time was spent in speech and
song.    A  toast    was    proposed    and

Seven Square Mllea of Ialand Waterfront to Be Reclaimed���Twenty
Millions Involved.
Harbor improvement plans and projects for the lower mainland, from
New Westminster along the waterfront and shore line to Burrard Inlet,
were discussed at Vancouver on Wednesday by the committee representative of Vancouver, New Westminster,
North Vancouver, Soutb Vancouver
and  Point Grey,  but  a new  Impulse

construction of a dock servica wbicb
wlll give twelve miles of deep
dockage, entailing an expenditure of
approximately $20,000,000. Mr. C. F,
Pretty, manager of the company, announces that construction work will
commence early fn the coming year.
"After careful consideration," says
Mr. Pretty, "our company has acquired about four thousand acres of
land, and all the waterfrontage from
the main channel of the Fraser river
around the west shore of Lulu island
to the North Arm to within one and
One-half miles of Eburne bridge, and
our works will be constructed along
this waterfrontage.
"Our engineers, J. C. White & Co.,
Incorporated, of New York, are on the
ground preparing the plans and estimates and tbe work will be pursued
as quickly as circumstances permit
us. The intention of the company is
to reclaim the sandheads in front of
our property for manufacturing sites
railway terminals and dockage, and
to maintain a twenty-six foot channel
out on the south side of our docks
from the main channel, ot the Fraser
and a 36 foot channel on the north
'side of our docks, which would he
opposite the channel that runs on the
south side of Sea island, with railway
and tramway lines running to our
Works, and thenee across Sea island
and through a tunnel under Point
Grey and Shaughnessy Heights to the
reclaimed lands at the head of False
creek, which will let all railway
that wlsii to, come Into the heart of
the district.
"The position of our docks was
chosen after several years' study of
all the waterfrontage adjacent tu
Vancouver, on the Fraser river,
Straits of Georgia and Burrard In
let. and after considering every commercial point such as handlness to
deep water, room for railway termln
ala and good sites for manufacturing
we have chosen the position mentioned."
This gigantic undertaking accounts
for the activity in Lulu island real
estate, which has had the real estate
skill of the lower mainland guessing
for weeks past. Already 4000 acrei
ot lulu island land has been acquired
by. the company. The cost of land
already under option exceeds $4,000,
000, and the ultimate cost of de
velopment will be $20,000,000. The
area of land to be reclaimed on Lulu
island waterfront la about seven
snuara miles, snd there will be 12
'miles of waterfront and wharfage
available when development of tbe
property Is complete. A tunnel, constructed at a cost of $1,000,000 will
extend flve and one-eighth miles,
connecting new freight terminals
with False creek union passenger depot. An area of about 4000 aero* wlll
be available for Industries an:l a

London, Oct 19. ��� TTie Chinese
situation. Hankow ia again shut oil
from direct communication with the
outside world. It ls not known whether the fighting which began on
Wednesday morning between the
revolutionists and the imperialists
continues. The laat advices out ot
Hankow Indicate that the rebels have
retired to Wu Chang after having mec
with temporary reverses. But - the
fact ls that no news haa been re
ceived at the legations at Peking during the last 24 hours to indicate that
the imperialists succeeded in forcing
a decided engagement.
Yuan Shi Kal, assuming the office
of viceroy of Hupeh and Hunan,
supersedes in authority the war min
ister. He goes under orders to inflict the most rigorous punishment on
tbe rebel rlnglea.lers.
The German legation denies that
the German troops were engaged ln
the street flghting at Hankow.

800 Manchus at Wu Chang, neither

Peking, Oct. 19���The court's official
announcement this morning that telegraphic communication with Hankow
had been interrupted since sunset
last night, caused consternation
throughout the capital today. The
wildest rumors of reverses to the imperial arms spread like wildfire, although no definite facts to support
them were available. Much significance was attache 1 to the fact that
the government has refrained from
issuing any official announcement of
a victory ln yesterday's engagement
with" the rebels. Among foreigners
who may be regarded as impartial
observers,   it   is  (generally   bellevod
Shanghai, Oct. 19.���Six packed
steamers arrived here from Hankow
today carrying refugees. The steamer
Belgravla was occupied exclusively
by foreign passengers who were given
ftee accomodation at %the direction
of the consuls In Hankow.
The ship was so crowded that many
of the passengers slept on the floors
of the hold. Most of the foreigners
were Russians who were employed In
the tea factories, and Belgian iron
workers, employed In the steel works,
the Han Yang arsenal and on thc
Peking-Hankow railway. The refugee?
declare that the whole Yangtse vai
ley from Hankow to Shanghai ls in
the hands of the rebels, with the possible exception of one or two larger
cities to jybich provincial officials
have retired with their available
troops. It has been insistently stated
here that Kien Kiang. 150 miles below
Hankow, is under revolutionary cbn-
trol. This ls denied, however, by
foreign officials and by the represen
tatives of the Chinese customs service.
Shanghai ls a hotbed of revolution
and rumors of plots and counter plots
are current. A formal appeal haa
been issued by the revolutionary
agents here today. "We expect," says
the appeal; "that our movement will
succeed. If it fails, the ten days'
massacres bf Hank Chow and Kia
Ling, when the Manchus subdued
China, will be repeated."
A proclamation credited to the
revolutionary leader in Hankow says:
Let us be merciful, even to our
enemies. Our soldiers must be carefu'
not to recklessly kill the Manchus.
Let us give them an opportunity to
surrender their uniform and weapons.
If they do not yiel.i and continue
enemies of the revolutionary movement, they must be killed."

Berlin, Oct. 19.���The correspondent
ot the Oerman newspaper Zeitaag
Ammittlg, cabling from Jerba, say?
tbat the Italian losses ln tbe nightly
skirmishes in Tripoli are considerable and that the Italian assertions,
that the Turin and tbeir Arab allies
are discouraged and intend to surrender, are pure humbug.
Cholera, he goes on to state, has
claimed many victims among the
Italian forces and citizens in Tripoli.
Rome, Oct. 19.���An interesting discussion ls taking place hera concerning the fate of the military aviators
sent to the front by Italy. During
the Franco-German war the occupants
of the French war balloons were
treated as spies by Bismarck, but it
Is thought that the Italian aviators,
who are wearing the uniforms of
their regiments and their government, will be treated as prisoners of

At a meeting of the board of tradi

of the high potential wires over the-

up. From the discussion it would appear that a solution ot the problem
ls at length almost within reach. Mr.

who built the bridge, has given it a*
his opinion that the wirea can safely
be raised, and Mr. Broderick. engineer, says he can raise them 180 feet

Good Roads Convent loir.
Another question of considerable
public Inteiest, the good roads convention which It is proposed to hold
ln this city on November 3 and 4,.
was brought up by Mr. W. J. Kerr.
Mr. A. E. White, president of the
board, said lt seemed to him the au-
tomoblllng members of the board'
ought to take this matter i n band.
He suggested that Mr. Kerr and Dr.
Holmes be asked to act as a special
committee, and through the secretary
notify all the members of the board
to identify themselves with the convention.
Mr. Kerr said he hoped the meeting would appoint someone else.   Dr..
Holmes was president and the speak
er was vice-president of the Automobile club: but this was not a matter
for  autoists   alone,   but   for    every
citizen.    Good  roads  would  open  up
the agricultural districts and promote S
.business.    "What we want," sail tlie
* j speaker, "ls a road between here and
J j Ashcroft. by means of which autoists
JI from Seattle and outside points may

Bakers Go Out In Dublin and Raids
Are Made on Break Wagons-
Servants Out Too.
Dublin, Oct. 19.���Tbe bread famine
bere caused by the bakers' strike is
so acute and the poor of thc city are
so near starvation that the constabulary and the soldiers brought to
maintain order purposely shut their
eyes when raids on bread wagons occur, lt is reported tbat orders have
been issued secretly for the police
not to "see" these raids, as tt is tea'.-
lzed the poor have reached the limit
of endurance.
An amusing phase or the strike Is
that,many domestic servants bave
struck out of sympathy, with the result that the mistresses are csmpelled
to experiment with break-making in
their own homes.
May   Yet   Be   Disqualified  for
Big Trial in Los Angeles���
Proceeds Slowly.
Hall or Records, Los Angeles, Oct.
19.���Asked if he knew of any reason
of any kind why he could not give
McNamara an honest and fair trial,
Venireman Robinson said he did not.
and he was finally passed for cause.
F. D. Greene, an orange grower,
was pas ed for cause by the McNamara defence.
Los   Angeles,   Oct.   19.���John
Roberts, dealer in Mexican lands.
Robert Bain, carpenter.
H. Y. Quakenbush, retired carpenter and general laborer.
A. R. Mcintosh, retired baker nnd
restaurant proprietor.
T. W. Adams, pioneer real estate
man, retired.
George W. McKee, retired builder.
Otto A. Jeasen, farmer.
C. B. Manning, rancher.
Ernest F, Decker, landscape gardener.
E. C. Robinson, carpenter and cement work contractor.
These ten men had been interrogated by tbe defence wben court
opened in the McNamara trial today.
Against McKee and Jeasen, who declared they were certain that a dynamite explosion destroyed the Times,
challenge for actual bias had been interposed by the defence and Judge
Bordwell had reserved decision.
Injection ot the personality of
Francis J. Heney into tbe examination
of talesmen has complicated the
situation. Attorney Davis demanded
whether Robinson approved of
Heney's statement that "because he
knew Burns" tbe McNamaras must
necessarily prove to be guilty as
charged. The state fought to keep
tbla question out, but failed. Robinson, however, had not. read Heney's
speech. Tbe decision of the court,
however, opened up a wide fleld for
the.interrogation of coming talesmen.
Slaughter of Manchus.
In the slaughter of Manchus at Wu
Chang neither sex was spared, and lt
Is doubtful, the refugees say, whether a single representative' of tbe
Manchu race was left alive tbere. The
slaughter of the Manchus also occurred ln Hankow and Han Yang when
those cities fell.
The run on the Imperial bank here
still continues, but the officials appear to have ample resources. They
are now paying out for the flrat tlmo
the newly minted dragon dollar* from
the mint at Nanking, the provincial
capital, tbeir reserve of Mexican dollars having been exhausted.

Mr. W. Norman Bole, K.C, for the
prosecution, recalled the main fea
tures of the tragedy. At seven o'clock
on the morning of the day of the
murder Mrs. Jobes was In the best
of health. Half an hour later she
was dead of bullet wounds. Witnesses
would testify, he said, to frequent
quarrels between the dead woman and
the accused, ber husband, who, on
the day before the tragedy, had purchased a 32-callbre revolver, and was
seen coming away from the house
immediately after the shooting.
Dr. R. E. Walker was the first wit
ness called. He testified that a postmortem examination of the body revealed four wounds on the head,
which were evidently produced by
two bullets. The flrst bullet had entered above the left eye ani took a
course just under the skin, emerging
beneath the hair on the right side of
the head. This would would stun, but
would not kill. The second bullet had
entered behind tbe right ear and had
come out In front ot the left ear,
severing the carotid artery and carrying away the roof of the mouth.
Death probably resulted in two or
three minutes.
Cross-examined by Mr. J. P. Hampton Bole, the witness admitted that it
was barely possible the wounds were
self-inflicted. It was, however, ex
tremely improbable, added the wit
William Jobes, son of the accused
next took the stand. On tbe lad's appearance, tbe father roused from the
stupor and Indifference In which he
had been sunk while the previous wit
ness told of the ghastly wounds on
the body of the dead woman. The
unhappy man seemed to shrink far
ther into himself ahd droppel hts
The witness told of frequent quas-
rels between his father and hla
mother. Om the morning of the
tragedy, he left his work aa a result
of a conversation with a fellow
workman ln the Schaake works and
went home. He met his father com
lng down Fourth atreet a few blocks
from tbe house. Tbe father gave no
indication of .what had happened
and merely asked the witness why
he was not at work. William replied
tbat some matter required bis atten

and, on looking through the glass

he was horrified to see the body of

In the piesent collection of "impressions and tales" the creator of
Sherlock Holmes abandons the romance of tlie man-hunt���the detective story with which liis name Is
imperishably linked���for something
quite different. There is, says the
author ln a brief preface, a literary re
gion "between actual story and actual
history which has never been
adequately exploited," the region of
the recreation of scenes out of the
past, not without the aid of fictitious
characters, if necessary, but for the
sake of the history���not the story.
Something of that sort has, of course,
been admirably done from time to
time���notably of late by Rudyard Kipling in "Puck of Pook's Hill." in such
visions as "On the Great Wall," and
"The Winged Hats."
Those qualities of imagination
which have won such favor for the
adventures of Mr. Sherlock Holmes
have stood Sir Arthur Cnan Doyle in
excellent stead In what he calls his
'trial flights" in this new direction.
The Last Galley.
In "The Last Galley"���which' gives
the present series its title���be has
fung upon the screen the dramatic
moment of the approach to the African coast of the single Carthaginian
ship which escaped the great battle
in which the all-conquering Romans
annihilated the rival sea power. He
pictures the last death-grapple of
that lone remnant of a great naval
armanent with two swift-pursuing
Roman war vessels in the very sight
of the stricken and helpless people of
the doomed African city. A line in
Latin beneath the title shows that
the author, like Mr. Kipling, has in
mind to warn his countrymen in parables. Through the vision of the last
galley of the Carthaginians sounds
the music of the "Recessional" and
the warning "Lest We Forget."
Cycle of Scenes.
Again the sudden flashlight of the
imagination Is plunged into the darkness of history to light up and permit a photograph of the moment
when Nero won by force and fraud
the laurel crown of Greek poesy at
Olympia. Again It leaps upon a
scene in a Roman senator's atrium
when a Christian slave Is brought be
fore his master for breaking the
Venus of Praxiteles, and when he will
not repent and sacrifice to the damaged goddess, condemned to the
lions. Other pictures show the day
when the hordes of the Huns swarmed out of the East and descended Innumerable upon the borders of the
Roman Empire; the recall of the legions from Britain; and the descent
of the first red shipr of 'the Saxon
rovers upon the Isle ot Thanet. In
all there is a power of visualization
and a vivid pictorial effect which
quite Justifies the author in his un
der taking.
But where Sir Arthur's imagination has served him best���not perhaps without reason, since he is a
Celt���is in a vision which like Kip
ling's, brings back the lurid moment
of the storming of the Great Wall by
the Picts and the Scots. It is a vision
seen through the eyes of a red High
lander and his wife, a dark Scots
woman of our own time���a weird
trick of atavism and second sight,
with its supposed orig!n in remote an
cestral memorks stirred up by a visit
to the excavations' about the old Roman fort at. Newstead. In this in
Etance, at least, the author has con
trived to lay a spell upon the reader
not  unworthy   of  Kipling.
The volume Is not entirely devoted
to these modestly named "impressions." As the sub-title Indicates,
there are tales also, chiefly of the
sort designed to make the flesh
creepy and chills run up and down
the spinal marrow. Of this tyre is the
story of the "Blighting of Sharkey,"
which tells of the capture of a merchant ship by the notorious pirate of
that name, of the ship's company
made to walk the plank���all but one
dark, handsome Spanish maid���and of
a leprous woman's h;Jnd laid upon tbe
bloody victor's cheek. There Is a
grim tale of a corpse that leaped from
the sea In the moonlight called "De
Profundis." and there is the marvelous relation of an accountant, who, as
he wore his nerves thin tracking a fat
alderman's defalcations through four-
and twenty fat lying ledges, saw in
an ancient silver mirror a vision of
the murder of Rlzzio���with the
wretched man clinging to this skirt of
Mary Queen of Scots In Holyrood Palace and the fierce Scottish lords with
lowering faces and bloody swords.
May Be Disappointed.
It Is true, no doubt, that Sir Arthur Canan Doyle has become so identified ln the public mind with Sherlock holmes that readers In general
will be dlssapointed���for a time, at
leaBt���with everything he 'oes which
leaves tbat popular favorite out of
account and discards tlie excitements
of the blood-quest. But now that
Mr. G. K. Chesterton has found time
from his paradoxes and his ingenious
demonstrations of the tremendous-
ness of trifles to invent a rival to
Mr. Sherlock Holmes ln the person of
the Ingenious cleric, Father Brown, lt
may not be_unwise for Sir Arthur to
imitate the ^historic example of Sir
Y^alter Scott when Byron took to
writing poetry���and seek another
Nobel Prize for Edison.
Stockholm, Sweden. Oct. 18.���It is
reported here today that Thomas A.
Edison will be awarded the Nobel
prize this year for his distinguished
achievements in physics.
The prize consists of one-fifth of
the annual Interest from a $9,000,000
fund left In 1896 by Alfred B. Nobel
for rewarding the services to the
world of those who make tbe most
distinguished advances In the five
branches of physics, chemistry, medicine, literature and reace.

Britishers sometimes complain that
their laws are eccentric. But what
about! those of other countries?
What, for instance, would our
wives, sisters, sweethearts, and mothers say if they lived in Lucerne,
where a law forbids the wearing of
hats more than eighteen inchea ln
diameter, or the wearing of foreign
feathers and artificial flowers? To
wear ribbons of silk and gauze, the
Lucerne ladies have to get a license
which costs about 3s. 4d. a year !
Even these laws are not so amazing as others. By law, a woman ln
Norway who wishes to wed must
first present to the authorities a
certificate showing that she is competent in the arts of cooking, sewing
knitting and embroidery.
In Madagascar a man must be a
father, or pay for the default. If he
is unmarried or childless at the age
of 25, he must contribute to the support of the state, as must also a woman who has remained single or is
childless at twenty-four.
Any actor who appears on tbe
stage wearing a military or ecclestlcal
costume in Austria ls fined, and although they ate permitted In Germany, they must be correct down to
the last loop and button.
And a man who is sentenced to
imprisonment for Ill-treating his wife
In the. Fatherland does not serve his
sentence continuously, and so deprive his family of his wages. He
has to work out his punishment ln
week ends!   Britishers please copy.

A letter from Ameer All forcibly
brings home to us the most serious
aspect of the Italian adventure in
Tripoli. Writing as a Mohammedan
who is deeply .interested in tho
growth and maintenance of amity and
friendly feeling between Christianity
and Islam and in seeing two great
creeds working harmoniously and, If
possible, hand-in-hand,' he warns us
of the "unthinkable consequences'
which may follow from "this
flagrant breach of all. cannons of
international morality on the part of
a nominally Christian country." To
England especially, he reminds us,
the matter must be of serious moment. "A hundred millions of Mussulmans acknowledge her sway, and
they ail take the keenest Interest in
���everything that concerns their fellow-
religionists abroad." Egypt and the
whole of Northern Africa "will be immediately affected by it, and the good
work of conciliation and the progress
of goodwill will be thrown back by
Italy must not   be surprised, says
the Westminster Gazette, lf this lan-
guage is heard with approval in countries which  desire to  be  friendly  to
her.    In  taking action  suddenly and
single-handed on grounds which have
not  been  explained  or  justified,  sbe
Imperils the interests of all her European neighbors.     If there is one principle   more   than  another  which   belongs to the comity of European nations lt is that none of them should,
without consultation with the others,
take steps which may bring the Moslem  world    into    conflict    with the
Christian.    The elaborate network of
treaties  for governing the  affairs of
the Ottoman Empire, tha Concert   of
affect vital interests ��� of their own.
What they can do is to localize this
quarrel, to save at least 'the Turkish
flag in Tripoli, and ,t* **e that all
other quarters in which.indubitable
Turkish rights are threatened are
carefully guarded. If they can do that
the Turkish Government may yet be
relieved from its most pressing anxieties and thus get some real compensation for the present' Incident.

unlikely to be the exact words used
by the prisoner.
The words in which the witness
cautioned the prisoner against talking
of the crime ' with which he was
charged did not meet the approval of
his lordship either. He thought the
phrasing was too stereotoyped, and
said it would have been far more
likely to have Impressed the prisoner
If the witness had merely said:
"Look here, I'm a police ofTicer. It
is my duty to make a note of anything you may say. It is not to your
interest to talk."
The legal point made clear by his
lordship was that a policeman Is not
allowed to extract evidence from a
prisoner by questioning.
James Clark Ellis, motorman on
the 13. C. E. R., testified to having
seen the prisoner on the street on
the morning of the tragedy. Prisoner
was carrying a grip, and witness,
thinking he intended to join the car.
stopped for him to do so, but prisoner
did not make any attempt to board
the car and witness drove on. Subsequently witness saw the prisoner
board an interurban car for Vancouver. He was not carrying the grip

the court sits this morning at 10:30.

Sir:    It would  be  unnecessary  for
me to reply to "Gareth's" criticism of
my letter, but for the fact that he offers  me a handsome apology.    I am
pleased to accept that apology frankly, in the spirit ln which it was tendered.   And may I give Gareth a little
more   information   and   correct  some
Information which he gave to me?   I
Btated  in  my    previous    letter  that
tbere were ln existence ln the city,
"theoretlcaly at least," two Hoys' Brigades.   Gareth says thut he has "yet  tlon have yet to be heard,
to learn that they are connected with
or  receive  any  encouragement   from
the church." So I am happy to inform
him that one    is    the St.  Barnabas'
Boys Brigade, in conneation with St.
Barnabas'  Parish Church,  started  by
a former rector, and the other ls the
Boys' Temperance  Brigade, and that
Its members would, if asked by Gareth, gladly admit that    they had received considerable help and encouragement from one of the city clergy.
Further, a walk up to the drill hall on
a Wednesday night, which Gareth advises one  to take,  would  reveal  not
the drilling of one of the Boys' Brigades, as Gareth asserts, but of the
Boy   Scouts.     Yours   faithfully.

less In Africa? Will minor powers. Bul

the position to put in their claims
for a further dismemberment of the
Ottoman Empire, and spring dangerous questions on their big neighbors
\rtiloh diplomacy in recent years has
"labored strenuously to avert? And
���What, as Ameer All asks, may be the
-effect on the Moslem population In
Egypt, or even,ln India (if the spoliation of Turkey. Is to be the avowed
object of European Powers? The
news that Italy is on the move causes
tall these questions to tte asked anxiously in London, Berlin, Vienna and
St. Petersburg, ami no certain answer
ean be given to any of them'. We see
the match heinc; taV.en to the powder
magazine, but what the explosion will
be and whom tlie fniKments will hit
is a question of i alnful conjecture.
Whatever the grievances of Italian
subjects mny tc, the rest of us are
bound to interpret the present move
in the light of the well-known and
well-advertised ambitions of It^ily.
The long arm of coincidence may \z-
count for much, but it is straining
our credulity to expect us to believe
that this sudden move at the end of
the Morocco negotiations is due to
grievances which have become acute
exactly at that moment. Vf'e are well
aware of the case which Italy will
make against the other Powers who
���venture to remonstrate. She will say
to France. "You have got Morocco,"
and to us, "You have got Egypt; why,
then, should I not take Tripoli?" The
cases would be parallel, if either
France or ourselves had sent an expedition to seize territory without
consulting any of its neighbors. Rich!
or wrong, our position in Egypt and
thai of France in Morocco is the re
suit of long negotiations in which
all the Powers liave been consulted.
In the early days of our occupation
of Egypt we gave the Turks a clear
opportunity of resuming control tf
they desired It, ami we have deferred
to the Powers in every step of our
policy. If we are there, it Is as guardians of a civilization which we have
ourselves built up and of interests
which have accumulated under our
protection. Conceivably, Italy might
"by gradual stepB have built up a similar position in Tripoli if the country
bad been capable of it, if the other
Powers had consented and Turkey
bad not objected, but there Is no parallel between this process and the
seizure of a slice of Turkish territory by a "coup de main." It Is most
emphatically in the interests of Europe that Turkey should be protected
aeainst these acts of spoliation on
the part of any Power, and it will be
the business of all of them somehow
to find compensation for Turkey.
The compensation need not, he territorial, provided that the Turkish flag
is respected in Tripoli, but it ought at
least to he a practical guarantee by
all of them against further encroachments, whether in Europe, Asia, or
Africa. In their own interests, the
Towers must take some joint action
to prevent the spread of this mischief,

Jobes Case Heard
(Continued from page one)
He ran for Dr. Walker and then foi
the pollce.
Lying on the floor after the body
had been removed a letter was found.
It was stained with the blood of the
dead woman. Dated from the Gulchon
rooms, where Jobes had resided for a
few days before the tragedy, the letter read as follows:
"Dear Wife,���I am alone ln this
world. Can you not forgive me this
time, for God's sake, lt Is enough
to drive me mad. Try and make up
your mind for this once. I will never
do anything to vex you again. Do
try and forgive me. I know that
your life has not been a pleasant one
ever since 1 took the drink, but I
have given it up. Only forgive me
this time and God will bless you.
From your loving husband, Henry
"I love you; I could not live without
you. Write and yet me know what
to do, if you please."
During the reading of this letter,
the prisoner was overcome with emo,
tion, and sat with his face buried in
Uis hands.
Under cross-examination, witness
said the accused was subject to un-
govennorable fits of temper, in which
he would throw anything at anyone
who offended him and seemed unable
to control himself. This was when
sober. He had been a heavy drinkei
In England, but had not been drunk
very often in this country. When
witness met the prisoner on Fourth
street, on the morning of the tragedy,
he Beemed to be in a normal frame
of mind.
Afternoon   Hearing.
Little occurred at the afternoon
hearing, except the vigorous and pun
gent cross-examination to which Con
stable Johnston was subjected by the
Chief Justice Hunter.
It appeared that this police officer
had visited the accused man in the
day room at the police station on the
night of his arrest. The accused said
he was hungry. Witness said he
would get him something to eat, and
then cautioned him that anything ho
said might be used ln evidence
against him.
It was on account of this interview
that the police oflicer was grilled by
the chief justice.
First the witness told how ho had
found a basket containing clothes,
books and a case of cartridges lying
near the post office shortly after the
tragedy on Fourth street. Concerning
the, interview he had with the
prisoner in the day room of the city
.tail, the witness said prisoner stated:
'I am guilty of the offence I was arrested for," and then broke down and

Many Prominent    People   to    Attend
Westminster Convention  First
Week in November.
For the first time since the Good
Roads movement was started ln the
west, now about two years ago, men
from each side of tbe International
boundary wiil meet ln a Canadian
city on Nov. 3 and 4, when the first
convention of enthusiastists will be
held ln Westminster. At this gathering will be representatives from as
far south as Portland and San Francisco, as far east as Winnipeg and as
far west as Alberni. The "farthest
north" representative will come from
���either Fort George or Prince Rupert,
but acceptance to the Invitations sent
to those places has not yet been .a-
The list of speakers wlll include
men of Influence and standing In
Westminster, Vancouver, Victoria,
Seattle, Tacoma, Belllngham. Spokane, San Francisco, Portland, Calgary, Winnipeg, and poBBlbly Chicago,
as Arthur C. Jackson, president of
the National Good Roads association, has written that he will attend
the meetings if he can possibly arrange bis proposed trip to the coast
to take place during the last week
In October and tbe first week , in
November. The program of addresses
to be given at the meeting will be
Anally drawn up towards the end of
next week.
Word was received yesterday by W.
J. Kerr, first vice-president of tho
Westminster Automobile association,
from Joseph Blethen. manager of the
Seattle Daily Times, that he would b?
unable to attend the meetings In this
city, as" he ls leaving for New York
on November 3. Mr. Blethen ls one
of the staunchest supporters of the
good roads movement and had been
asked to give an address on the flrst
day of the convention.
In his letter to Mr. Kerr Mr.
Blethen Intimates that Fred Wagner,
automobile editor of the Times, will
attend the local meetings as a member of  tbe  Seattle delegation.
A. E. Todd, of Victoria, is taking
great Interest ln the preliminary ar
rangements for the convention and
has promised to head a strong dele
gation from Victoria, Nanaimo, Alberni and other island noints.
A committee of the Westminster
Automobile club is now engaged In
arranging for the fitting reception and
entertainment of the distinguished
autoists and good roads enthusiasts
who will make their headquarters
here for two days ln the early part
of next month.

"A door knocker ls to a man's
house what a sign Is to a shop or a
tavern, and often lt ls something
more. I realized this," says a writer
in the National Magazine, "when I
stood on the doorstep of 10 Downing
street, Westminster, and gazed at
dull old door of the official residence
of  Old   England's   Prime   Minister.
"What a knocker! What an Interesting specimen of chlsled metal
work! It Is probably Intended to represent a lion's head, and yet Lord
Beaconsfleld once described to a
friend this particular knocker as having a marked resemblance to the features of his political opponent, Mr.
"There is probably no other knocker In existence that has been handled

For many Prime Ministers have resided in the dingy little red brick mansion so conveniently situated for the
Houses of Parliament, and many
great men have been their visitors.
"Downing street Is 100 yards long
and ten yards wide, and No. 10 ls
mean and shabby; but unimpressive
as It is. it is the very hub of the British Government. Here Palmerston,
Beaconsfleld. Pitt, Gladstone and
many another Premier have presided
over Cabinet meetings fraught with
the destiny of the Empire.
"Although Cabinet councils may be
held anywhere, their proper locale ls
10 Downing street. The cabinet
room, situated on the ground floor, ls
a finely proportioned apartment divided by columns ln the Corinthian
style, and the walls are completely
lined with bookcases filled with
works of reference and Innumerable
voiumnes of Parliamentary reports,
familiarly known as blue books.
"As befits a meeting place of such
a secret character, the doors are double and communicate with carefully
guarded ante-rooms. There are five
double windows, three of which look
out Into the garden at the rear of
the house. The room has a very business-like appearance, not unlike tbat
of a foreign court of Justice. The
seats are arranged ln what one might
call a series of pews, grouped round
a central table covered with green
baize. Desks upon folding rests are
provided, and the seats are comfortably upholstered.
"The chamber Ib by no means the
kind of a place for a lounge. In the
days of Grevllle the Ministers were
renowned for their knack of taking it
easy. At that period the Cabinet meetings were held in a long, narrow, pld-
fashloned room upstairs, where Ministers Bat at very close quarters, so
cloBe indeed that one right honorable
member became unpopular with his
colleagues owing to the fact that he
had fallen into the bad habit of kicking the shins of those around him
at intervals of a minute or bo.
"In Mr. Gladstone's later days the
meetings of the cabinet were often
held in a smaller and more convenient apartment because the Grand
Old Man of politics had turned the
Cabinet room into an office for his
secretaries. Lord BeaconBfield had
much  affection  tor the  room  oh the

the the smount of the bribe said to
have been paid Bizalne by the German Intelligence Department was definitely stated to be 11,050,000. Though
the French government found Bazainq

upon the verdict.

Mr. H. W. Stevenson, the famous
Milliard player, met Percy Worrell al
the Vancouver club on Wednesday
night. Worrell started with a 400
point lead on the champion, and sue
ceeded ln making 911 In all, while
the champion made 1000. Some
high breaks were made during the
game, among them being: Stevenson
128, 103, 75 and 64: Worrell 104, 65,

an exhibition game at 566 Seymoui

"It is interesting to know tbat each
member of the Cabinet is supplied
with a key which fits the lock of a
certain despatch box retalne.l by the
Prime Minister. At any particular
crisis when Important papers reach
Downing street the Premier, after
perusing them, places them ln the
despatch box and banda tbe box to a
special messenger, who takes it round
to each member of the Cabinet ln succession. Each member opens it with
his key and relocks It after he has
read the documents lt contains. In
this way the papers are prevented
from falling Into the hands of strangers or members of Parliament who
are not ln the Cabinet.
"Now and again It Ij found necessary to print copies of a 'secret'
which comes up for discussion at a
meeting of the Cabinet. The document is cut up into many small pieces
and distributed among a goodly number of compositors In the Government
printing works, each of whom sets up
his little piece, and the little piece
may represent only a dozen lines of
type, a highly trusted official collects
both the copy and the type and puts
the latter together. The printing of
the document Is then done in secre*
under the eyes of this official, and
the men who work the printing machine are forbidden to handle any of
the paper after it is printed upon."
Firm   Alone   Has   Paid
810,000,000 in Bribes.
Fifty Russian officers are on trial
at Moscow, and an astounding state
of corruption in the supply department of the Russian army has been
revealed. It is stated that one firm
alone has paid away over $10,000,
000 in bribes ln the last twenty-five
years. One of the members of the re
cetving committee ls alleged to bave
been paid $135,000 on one transaction
alone. So heavy has been the brlb
ery that the clerks of the departmenl
deliberately spoiled the samples of
any firm which did not give bribes
It is caluclated that the Russian gov
ernment haa lost $50,000,000 at least
in the last few years on this account.
Ruasia has always had an unenvl
able reputation for corruption. When
Port Arthur surrendered a large num
ber of continental critics of the land
of the Czar .'id not hesitate to openly
accuse General Stoessel of having ac
eepted a large bribe from the Japanese. Reports were floating around al
the. time that halt bis staff were au*v,
sldized by the Japanese. Thesis r*
ports were   manifestly   absurd, but
imperial pen
mural were deprived of cherished
weapons, by which the gentlemen of
Japan had been acastomed from immemorial times to advertise their
rank. So they went Into the police,
where it was still possible to carry a
sword, and a very formidable weapon
lt was, being of the two-handed variety.
Perhaps the pollce of 20 years ago
were rather too fond of chopping a
prisoner in half instead of arresting
him. but they were very expert and
there was seldom any evidence to con
tradlct their own perversion of the
Incident. To persons of their own
rank and to foreigners they are polite
to a degree which would seem ludicrous anywhere except in the land of
honoriflcs. One incident Illustrates
this trait well enough. At Osaka
during a water festival the bridges
were kept clear of spectators by a
rope at either end guarded by a policeman.
With the contempt for authority
which distinguishes the Englishman
abroad, two or three tourists stood on
the wrong side of the rope out of the
crowd, so as to get a better view, but
the policeman was equal to the occasion. With apologetic bows he .untied one end of the rope and then fas.
tened It again in front of the foreigners and they had the good sense to
accept the rebuke.
To Annex Egypt.
Londcfi, Oct. 19.���Egypt will soon
be formally annexed to the British
empire, according to reports emanating from usually reliable sources
connected with Berlin and Vienna
financiers. The foreign office makes
Its usual .perfunctory denial.

The dominant fashion among hats

two individuals. Later calculations
have been made by Mr. V. Bait hazard
ln a communication to the Paris
Academy of Sciences, who explains
at Bome length his method of estimating. He enlarges each print and divides each Into a hundred squares.
Each square will be found to contain

If we could approach the derby hat

these black Inflexible blocks would be
apparent. A clerk snatches up a heavy

Since   there  are   1,600,000,000   peo-

50,000 million finger prints in a century, It would require a considerable
number of years to furnish enough
human beings to provide all the pos-
slhe combinations. This number ls
represented by the figure two, followed by forty-eight zeros. In other
words, there are not only no two finger prints Identical, but there never
have been two alike In all history, and
there never wlll be two alike. For
practical purposes of Identification it
is found that if the marks are alike
ln seventeen of the hundred squares
the Identity of the two is established
