Hands Over ��200���Visiting  Dsys
Have   Been   Changed.
At the regular monthly meeting of
the Royal Columbian Board, which
was held yesterday afternoon, the
announcement was made by tbe secretary that, during the month of September last, one thousand nine hundred and ninety-five days had been
devoted to the care of the inmates
of the hospital collectively. That Is

of days altogether given to their
That ia surely saying something
for the Individual attention paid to
each patient ln the hospital.
At the meeting there were present
ln the chair Aid. Johnston, Mesdames
Pearse, A. J. Hill, A. H. Ferguson
and W. T. Reid; Messrs O. Small. J.
N. Montgomery, and Superintendent
Mlss Scott, and Secretary E. G. Withers.
The report of the secretary showed that on the first of September
there were 67 cases ln the hospital
and at the last day of the month
there were 65. The number of males

females 10 and the number of children 6.
The discharges during the month

It Is desired by the management
that special attention should be
drawn to the fact that a sum of no
less than $200 was handed over to
the hospital yesterday by Mrs. Ferguson, on behalf of the Local Councll
of Women, as the net profit of the tea
rooms conducted at the recent fair.
The president made a special speech
of thanks and appreciation of the gift,
and signified that the hospital management were thoroughly grateful to
the many ladles.who had been so diligent In furthering the great cause of
the Institution.
The secretary wishes to announce
that the hospital authorities have
made some changes In tlSft visiting
days whfch will be noticed in tomorrow's issue of this paper.
The result of the coroner's inquest
over the body of Webb waa to the
effect that the man came to his
death accidentally by being shot by
Police Officer Campbell while in the
discharge of bis duty, and the Jury
exonerated Campbell from all blame.
Most of the time at the Inquest ln
the case of C. H.'Webb at the Center
& Hanna undertaking parlors, Vancouver, this morning was taken up
with evidence as to the ownership of
goods found in the rooms of the deceased at 822 Pender street. Webb
was shot on Monday night by Detective Campbell In the alley in the
rear of Chapman's billiard and pool
rooms, while trying to escape from
the officer's custody.
Dr. Curtis was first called. He aim-
ply testified that death was due to a
severance of the pulmonary arteries
In the left side of the lung.
Arthur F. Douglas, poolmarker at
Chapman's pool room, testified to
having bought clothes from Webb and
to having declined to purchase a gun
from him.
In the room -where tbe Jury sat
there was a great pile of clothes,
grips, satchels, overcoats, etc., found
In Webb's room, and one of the in
terestlng features of the morning's
session was the picking out and identifying of a number of these by members of Christ church choir. It de
veloped that on a recent Sunday evening the members of tbe choir had
shed their worldly outer garments as
usual In the cloak room and had assumed their cassocks. After the service was over when they had taken
off their cassocks and mortar boards
and wanted to resume overcoats, furs
and hats, they were missing. Mr.
James Sutherland, assistant comptroller of the B. C. Electric Railway
company, found himself minus a
brand new waterproof; Mr. Kid-
well's raincoat was also missing; Mlss
Cash, of 1059 Burnaby street, found
no waterproof where she had hung
one; Miss Hellaby's furs had been
levitated and Mr. Edgar Cummings'
raincoat had gone, away without orders from Its owner.

London, Oct. 18.���The Chinese
situation is as follows: TTTe imperial
troops and the revolutionists have
come to grips at Hankow. The battle
Is as yet Indecisive. The government
at Peking claims a great victory.
Their troops bold the trenches at
Hankow as well as tbe railway station where reinforcements are hourly arriving. The rebels have fallen
back on Wu Chang, which ls said to
be strongly fortified. Tbe casualties
on both sides are supposed to be
large as the fighting waa at times at
the bayonet point.
During the flghting between the
land forces the Chinese warships
shelled the rebel position, but the dispatches state that the flre from the
forts was much more effective and
that at least one government gunboat
was badly damaged.

Eighth Annual Meeting to Be Held in
Vancouver Will  Be of Absorbing Interest.
No One  In Weatmlnster Who  Loves
Music  Should  Miss This Rare
Attendant upon the visits of the
Royal Welsh Ladles' Choir are benefits that are. both directly and Indirectly, Incalculable In their value In
more ways than one. Foremost among
these Is the Inspiration of the music���
an inspiration that wakens talents
and pleasures which were hitherto
dormant In the listener; and once
awakened, these attributes will make
an Incessant demand ui on the Individual affected to cultivate his talent
and to assuage his craving tor the
higher pleasuros of life. The general musical education disseminated by
ahe ladles' choir ls also of sucb a
kind that will permanently benefit
the general public, musical and otherwise. To mlss a concert given hy
the Welsh ladles ls Just like slipping
a notch In the wheel of musical progress. One needs not persuade the
really musical man or woman to go
and listen to the choir, but it is the
duty of every musical Canadian to
persuade the Indifferent publlc to
go and hear the Royal Welsh Ladles'
Choir whenever It comes their way.
They owe that much to art and education, and to the ladles who sacrifice the love ot home to tour In a
distant land for the love of art. Encourage your friends to hear this

Hankow, Oct. 18.���A general engagement between the revolutionary
army and imperial forces waa precipitated on the waterfront here early
today by the attempt of Admiral Sail
Chen Ping to land a large body of
troops for the reinforcement of General Chang Plao.
Chang Plao, who although officially
dismissed by the Peking government,
still retains his command, was entrenched within a few hundred feet
of the provincial army at a point in
the native quarter close to the foi-
eign concessions. It was Just day
break when Admiral Sah ordered his
cruisers to disembark their coldiers
The revolutionists immediately de
tected the movement and opened a
hot flre with their artillery. The
cruisers and gunboats ln the river replied with a rain ot shells, which
diverted the attention of the Wu
Chang artillerymen and effectively
covered tbe landing of the troopa.
Large bodies of revolutionists on
both sides of the river Joined in the
flghting ahd by mid-forenoon It was
estimated that 2000 Imperial troops
and nearly 10,000 rebels were engaged. The warships used up a large
quantity of ammunition, but their fire
was hampered by their fear of endangering the foreign concessions.
All the foreign warships in the
river sent landing parties ashore for
the protection of foreign interests
The rebels drove the lmpprikl,
troops back from their positions temporarily, but in doing so they exhausted their rifle ammunition and
were compelled to retire on tbeir
base at Wu Chang.

Writer of Annonymous Letter to Chief
Justice 8ought by Police���To Be
Summarily Dealt with.
After dragging Sta somewhat weary
length along for two full days and a
slight margin, the case ln which two
Eaat Indians, Ishea Singh and Mok-
hand Singh, were charged with unlaw
fully wounding a fellow countryman,
Dharm Singh, with Intent to do
grievous bodily barm, came to a close
last night ln a series of sensational
happenings which had ln them all the
elements of the unusual and the unexpected. Briefly, the two prisoners
were found guilty of the grave charge
preferred against them, two witnesses
for the defence have been committed
on a charge of perjury, and the polio

Lover of Truth an.l Justice," by his
lordship Chief Justice Hunter. In
spite of the severity of legal procedure there was an atmosphere of the
melodramatic about the circumstances
ln which the case closed.
It was after five o'clock when the
last witness left the box and Mr. J.
A. Russell, counsel for the defence,
rose to address the Jury. In an able
speech counsel urged upon the Jury
the duty of balancing the conflicting
stories which had been told by the
two sets of witnesses. In particular,
he laid stress upon the fact that Mr.
E. M. N. Woods, a Vancouver barrister, was present watching the case,
and he urged that while this was

sets of Individuals ?

Advice of Water Committee
While Not Contravertlng Letter From
Vancouver Power Co., Committee
Felt Report Should be Submitted
The city council, at a meeting last
night, resolved to forward to the
Dominion minister of the interior the
reply made by tbe water committed to
the telegram sent to Acting Mayor
Johnston following presentment to
the department of complaints regarding the discoloration of the city
water supply. The department, lt wlll
be recalled, acting on the advice of
its engineers anl on the opinion
formed by tbe engineers of the department after reading a report made
by the- engineer of the Vancouver
Power company, ascribed tbe dis-
coloration to recent heavy rains and
assured the city council, through the
acting mayor, that the department
waa alive to the necessity of preserving and safeguarding the city water
supply. Ail the regular meeting on
Monday evening last, Alderman Bryson, chairman of the water committee, read a reply which the commit
tee had prepared and a recommendation that thla reply ahould be sent to
tbe minister of tbe Interior. The reply of the committee and its recommendation were as follows:
"Re telegram received from Deputy Minister of the Interior, ln
which he states that the cause^of
the discoloration of tbe city's ��wfer
is heavy rains after exceptionally low
water. The committee, after investigation on the ground, have come to
the conclusion that the cause of the
discoloration is the operations now
being prosecuted by the Vancouver
Power company around the lake
These clearing operations are naturally tearing up the surface of the
ground and moss on the hillside, and
swamps on the lake shore and banks
of Coquitlam river. After a rainfall

War Scare at Amoy.
Amoy, Oct. 18.���The war scare
reached this city today through the
receipt by several native commercial
organizations of despatches warning
them that Amoy was to be seized
shortly by the rebel leaders. The
despatches were unsigned, but purported to come from revolutionary
headquarters. They contained assurances that there would be no Interference with commerce.
Would Not Send  Fleet.
San Francisco, Oct. 18.���According
to a cable dispatch received here today the imperial government has sent
an urgent request to Chang Ming Chi,
the viceroy of Canton province, asking him to send the southern imperial
fleet, lying at Hong Kong, to aid ln
the attack on the rebels at Hankow.
The viceroy replied that he was usable to do this owing to the threatened invasion of his own province.
Large orders have been placed in
San Francisco Chinatown for sun

a red fleld with a blue square in the

set up an alibi that failed was a
boomerang. It was as if the man
said I did not do this thing, because
I was not there; the presumption was
that since he was there he did do it.
His lordship ln charging the jury,
said the prisoners wero charged on
two counts: flrst with unlawfully
wounding with intent to do grievous
bodily harm, and, second, with unlawfully wounding. He briefly in
dicated the difference in degree of
helnousness of the two offences,
dwelling upon the fact that In law
the-gravity of the offence lies ln the
Proceeding to review the evidence
In the case, Chief Justice Hunter laid
particular stress upon the medical
evidence of Dr. McQuarrie. The
atory of housebreaking, he pointed
out. had not been told by the prisoners to the police till some time after
the occurrence. If the housebreaking
really happened, It was natural to
suppose that lt would have been thc
first thing the prisoners would .have
told the police. It had been proved
that Dharm Singh was a man of
substance to whom the contents of
Mokhand Singh's box would not be a
temptation. Concerning the alibi of
Ishea Singh, his lordship remarked
that ��ne witness had said he went
with Ishea Singh to Vancouver on the
night ln question, leaving New Westminster at 6; IS and arriving in Vancouver at 7:16. The books of the
mill company where this witness was
employed showed,, however, that he
was credited with having been at
work on the evening in question from
six o'clock till nine o'clock. Overtures
were made by the prisoners with n
view to effecting a settlement. Overtures, said hla lordahip, would not
be made by persons conscious of their
own innocence or who were not there
when the offence was said to have
been committed.
At ten mlnutea past six the Jury retired, and after an absence of nearly
three-quarters of an hour they
brought in a verdict of guilty on the
first count, assault with intent Sentence was deferred till the conclusion
of the assise.
''Gentlemen." commented his lordship, addressing the jury, "you have
come to the only conclusion to which
you could come on the evidence submitted to you."
The crown prosecutor asked that
two ot the witnesses for the defence,
Ishea Singh (No. 2) and Borg Singh,
be committed for perjury.
Chief Juatice Hunter said the evidence of those two witnesses had
been absolutely Inconsistent with the
verdict of the Jury, and the only reasonable conclusion was that the wit
nesses had been guilty of perjury.
That was a very serious offence. "It
Is my duty." said the chief Juatice,
"having heard the evidence, and be
ing of the opinion that the two wit
nesses committed perjury., to order
them into custody ao that they may
be nrosecuted for this offence."
The chief justice then stated that
lie had received a letter signed by "A

McNamara Trial Will  Be Fought on
Thla Point���Another Month to
Get the Jury.
Hall of Records, Los Angeles, Oct.
18.���Dynamite or gas?
The issues in the trial of James
B. McNamara, accused of the- murder
of Charies G. Haggarty, ln connection with the destruction of tbe Los
Angeles Times, were spuarely joined
It ls now of record that the state
will insist on a dynamite plot ln
proving Its corpus delicti, while the
defense will resist this at all times
by trying to show the explosion tq
have been due to gas and the deaths
of the 21 men to have lost their lives
to have been accidental.
The Joining of the Issues followed
the interposition of a challenge for
cause by the defense to Venireman
George W. McKee, heretofore accepted by them. It developed overnight
that he was.on record as believing
that dynamite caused the Times disaster.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
defense In the McNamara trial at the
opening of court today had tentatively accepted six talesmen, prospects
for the final empannellng of a jury
within a period less than a month
were not considered bright. Clarence
S. DarroW, nhief counsel for James
B. McNamara, aald the defense would
continue te examine for cause the
remaining veniremen, hut would return each, day with a few questions
to the talesmen previously accepted
The defense constantly is seeking
to learn" all about tbe past life of
the talesmen.
Two important principles have been
acted upon in court hy the court in
its examination of talesmen. In the
first place any veniremen who have
fixed prejudices against labor unions
both as to their organisations and
their individual members will find
themselves* subject to challenge for
cause and if not allowed by the court
then they will be subject to peremptory challenge later.
Anyone who haa handled dynamite
or has reported an immovable opinion that tha Times building was de-
stroyey by dynamite, whether feloniously placed or not likewise will be
considered by the defence as hostile
to Its Cause.
"Durta* tn* past IS yeara Since the
Installation ot the water system try
the city of New Westminster, no discoloration has been complained of.
"We would call the attention of the
Minister to Clause 5 of the order-in-
council, which reads as follows:
"That the Vancouver Power Co.,
shall immediately remove without reducing the present net hydraulic
head, the vegetable growth and objectionable micro-organism and all
impurities, color odor and taste
that, may be inflicted on the water
supply of the City of New Westminster as a result of the construction
and operation of the dam.
"We would ask the council to tor*
ward copy of this report to the Mln
ister of the Interior for further consideration."
At the special meeting last night
the matter was discussed at considerable length, the discussion revolving
around ' the question of the effect
which the operations of the Vancou
ver .Power company have upon the
city water-supply, the extent to
which these effects are undesirable,
and the means of preventing them
in so far as tbey are undesirable.
In the end, the recommendation of
the water committee was adopted and
it was agreed that a copy of the committee's rerort on the subject ahould
be sent to the minister of the Interior
In terms of the recommendation made*

It Is interesting news that, from
Victoria, about the purchase of the
yacht Feloma by the provincial government. The trim, little housed-in
two-funnel craft of 12 or 15 tons burden, and measuring fifty or sixty
feet over all, says a Victoria despatch, has been exciting much interest among Victorians, with vn eye
for what goes on at the waterfront.
The handsome and speedy little craft
has been purchased by the government of British Columbia from Mr.
F. S. DeGrey of the Royal city, and
hereafter not New Westminster but
Victoria will tie her home port and
headquarters. She will operate under the public works department in
various official services, with Mr.
John Armstrong, of Revelstoke, commanding. She will be available to
carry public officials on' trips of inspection of roads, bridges, etc, in
territory more conveniently reached
by water than by rail, especially
within the limits of the Islands electoral district. She will also be at the
call of the provincial police department for the pursuit of harbor and
flsh trap pirates, boat thieves, etc.
In fact, she will, to a large extent.
and probably with more speed and
not less efficiency, do much of the
work for Victoria which the Vancouver police patrol boat does for the
terminal city on the harbor of Burrard Inlet. It is probable also that
the Feloma will be requisitiontd by
the forestry branch of the lands department when in the heat of summer bush fires become epidemic.
Scarcely a year off the stocks, the
Feloma is equipped with engines of
40 h. p. capable of developing speed
of nine or ten knots. She is a fine
seaworthy boat in rough weather or
smooth, while her interior equipment
is of the best. Electric lights and all
the larger launch devices find a place
ln  the  Feloma.

London. Oct. 18���At the coming
Durbar ceremonial Queen Mary will
(appear in the same robes and crOwn
that she wore at the coronation, but
to the gems in the crown has been
added the famous Koh-i-noor, out of
compliment, to  the  Indian  empire.
This marvelous gem crowned the
head of an Indian emperor 5000
yearB ago. It passed from one imperial line to another, until it hecame
the treasure of the Punjab, and then
fell into the hands of the English,
who sent it as a trophy of conquest
to Queen Victoria, thus ghhg point
to the Indian saying that. "Who holds
the Koh-i-noor holds India."
In India t'ie superstition obtains
that if the diamond is worn by a man
dire disaster wiil I cfal) him while
if the wearer he a woman fortune
will shine upon her for the rest of
her days.
Belief In Legend.
So strong i.s the belief in this legend that when it was announce 1
that tlie late King Edward intended
to have the gem set in his crown
many leading Indians petitioned his
majesty  to give up  the  idea."
The result was that the Koli-i-noor
instead of appearing in the King's
crown was mounted in Queen Alexandra's diadem. It has now been
transferred to the crown of Oueen
Mary, and before tlie close of the
year this historic gem will ho seen
once moie in the land whence lt
Another notable jewel to he worn
by Queen Mary at Delhi is a larne
diamond lotus, which is now being
mounted by her majesty's jewelers.
This will be worn at th�� enthrone.

Women  This  Summer  In
Cld      Fashioned      Attire.
' The marriage recently In Paris of
the famous prima donna, Mme. Emma
Eames. to Emilio de Gogorza, ths
equally well known baritone, terminates a rather sensational romance ot
several years' standing.
i Mme. Games, as all tbe world knows,
wus formerly the wife of Julian Btory,
and (his Is also De Gogorza's second
matrimonial venture, bis flrst wife.
Mrs. Elsa de Gogorza. having obtained
a divorce from him recently. At ono
time there was much unpleasant gossip about Mme. Eames having given
Mrs. Elsa de Gogorza $100,000 for
setting ber husband free from hymenl-
al chnlns. These rumors, however,
were entirely without foundation, as
tbe only recompense for alienated affections (he flrst Mrs. de Gogorza has '.
ever received is represented In a
monthly check of $.300, which Is sent
to ber regularly from ber former husband.
I Many beautiful wedding gifts were
received by Mme. Eames from the De
Gogorza family. Tbe baritone's mother presented her new daughter inlaw
vrith a collection of rare old Spanish
fans, and a sister-in-law aent yards of
priceless point lace.
I Mme. Eames de Gogorza has a sumptuous apartment in Paris, which
probably wlll be tbe future bome of
the singers wben their professional
engagement* allow of domestic life,
for tbe beautiful soprano will continue
to elm nu tbe musical publlc with her
glorious voice.
i Before the opening of the New York
opera season next fall tbe newly wedded pair wfll make a concert tour,
singing ln most of the large cities ef
this country.

French Machine Transforms the Wheat
| Directly Into Dough.
I In France bread has been made
without flour In u machine tbat transforms tbe wheat directly iuto dough.
This machine shows a large screw
turning loosely in a cose on tbe Inner
surface of which Is a screw thread
running In au opposite direction.
I Between the main threads on tbe
cylinder nre smaller threads and the
depth of (be groove becomes progressively smaller from one end to tbe
otber, so tbat It will hold tbe entire
-wheat grain as It enters the machine,
at the same time accommodating only
the pulverized wheat at tbe exit.
I The wheat Is prepared by n thorough washing, after which operation,
says Harper's Weekly, about n pint of
tepid water to a pound of grain is
added, (he whole mixture being allowed to stand some six hours. Then
the grains of whent have swollen to
twice their ordinary size.
I The mixture Is then treated with
yeast nnd salt nnd Is poured into the
machine. It falls between the threads
of thc moving screw nnd of the fixed
contrary screw, which simultaneously crush the envelope and body of tho
grain, making of them a homogeneous
mixture that forms a smooth paste.
Bread made by this process contains n succession of holes whose size
increases as they approach the crust,
which Is thin. Tbe odor given off ts
���aid to be especially agreeable.

At the present Ume, when Alder-
mftn Lynch ls proposing to put a By-
Law before the people for the betterment of our parks, quotation cannot
be better made than from the remarks of F. C. Howe In Hampton's
The Montreal Witness In publishing
extracts puts forward a powerful plea
for one and all to Interest themselves
in the beautifying and the betterment
of the cities we live in:
"A city built like a home���with
every provision for comfort,, convenience, beauty, happiness. . . A city
designed by architects, engineers,
educators, artists, by experts employed by the city and thinking for
the city���a city for the people���for
all the people." Such is the picture
prsented by Frederic C. Howe in
"Hampton's" with the. query addressed to Am<rican rea.lers whether their
dreams ever linger on such a municipal vision. Such cities have, lie says,
been realized in Germany, while in
the l'nited States, thousands ofiuuen
and women, working in countless or-
ganlzations, most of   them conscious

only of their own little pi*e* of work
are bringing the vision nearer upon
this continent. A change, he believes,
has come over us. A few years ago
we talked only of "turning the rascals out,' 'of "good government," of a
"business man's administration by
business men." But now we are beginning to see that we must save the
city ourselves, and in the process ourselves be saved. We aie now beginning to think of the city as an entity,
to plan it, mould it, fashion it so that
it will serve humanity rather than
destroy it. The American city is being born.
According to this writer the> new
Idea that the city should be built as
men build homes received Us inspiration from the World's Fair In Chicago
in 1S9,'!. That would be as far as the
United States is concerned. It would
certainly be only an extreme stretch
of national self-consciousness that
could attribute to that the very active town-planning movement which
has seized upon Great Britain. When
they saw the fair ground, says Mr.
Howe, men began to say tp themselves, "Why cannot we live in
cities as beautiful as this play city,
which will disappear at the end    of
portatlon, a central clearing house
from which freight is to be distributed, and passenger transportation are
all receiving expert consideration.
Cleveland Is going tq group her public and semi-public buildings at a cosi
of over $20,000,000. A lake park of
fifty-five acres has already been made
at comparatively small expense by
dumping refuse into* the harbor.
Other fine improvements are projected. Denver and Rochester are also
proceeding with plans tot monumental civic groups. St. Louis, St. Paul
and Buffalo are remodelling themselves both toward greater beauty
and greater convenience....
Though the Washington design is
a great Improvement on ihnt of Penn,
It is not Ideal. "No#,' says Mr.
Howe, "the German clt# planners are
protesting against any - formal plan.
Not uniformity, but diversity, cozi-
ness, the unexpected to the thing to
be studied in the laying tout of city
streets. Streets ought tQ follow the
natural contour of the land and pre
serve every natural vista aiid outlook
In the suburbs they may curve so as to
secure recurring views of the house
fronts. Some of these'eyjiprts insist
\ttiat the old medieval sfr��*t, broken
the summer1! . Why   cannot our cMes \ gfiarp  off at street" intersections,  af-
be bu\U tor comfort, tor convenience,^tords an opportunity  for beauty that
tor beauty, for Joy, and be planned
by experts and architects trained for
the purpose." Since the time of the
Fair, architects and landscape gardeners have given their attention to
the problem of remodelling the city.
Conferences have been Mel^, literature has made its appearance. A love
of beauty has been formed as well as
a conviction that the city is something more than an aggregation of
mills, factories anl sweatshops. Moro
than sixty cities have caught the contagion of the movement, and ha\w
empioved exrerts to prepare plans for
groui ins public buildings, about,
which the l'fe of the community will
centre, for opening up commanding
thoroughfares, for parks and open
spaces, for the planning of suburban
residence districts, for the development of water fronts, for docks and
harbors and the rearrangement of business districts. "A city like a World's
Fair, but in stone rather than in plaster, planned from centre to circumference, far in advance of its heeds
and with provision for e^erj; sorial
want, that is the meaning of city
planning. It is the newest^ of- .the
sciences, and possibly the greatest of
them all." ' ' ���
Mr. Howe cites the city of Washington as the great American exarcple
of city planning. Philadelphia ha/4
been planned in rectangular blocks
by William Penn, but upon this gridiron system George Washington and
his friend, L'Enfant, superimpose 1
broad radial avenues running from
the grounds of the capitol. These
avenues were to widen frequently
i'nto parkB and open spaces. Ftom
the Capitol to the White House a
���capacious mall two thousand feet In
width was projected, which was to be
tlie site of all public buildings. Chicago is one of the newer cities which
has been caught hy the planning spirit. Drawings liave been prepared under the guidance of the landscape artist Daniel Burnham. They have cost
$75,000 and the projected improve
ments involve a probable cost of $250 -
000,000 Out of the heart of the business district a spacious city centro is
to be carved, about which tho public
buildings of the future are to be erected. Dominating this central group, as
well as the city, provision is made for
a huge municipal building, with splendid dome. From this centre wide
malls will radiate to the suburbs.
Some distance out into Lake Michigan and extending along the entire
city front artificial parkways are to
be made by dumping the city's refuse.
These nre to be separated from the
shore by lagoons. Near the centre
of this water parkway a great circu-
lar harbor Is designed, which is to be
the c;owning beauty and gateway of
the city. Two sets of circular boulevards are also to be cut through the
citv. widening at intervals ipto open
spaces, while oot In the country
woods are to be jyquired like those
possessed by the German and Swiss
cities. Provision is also made for
the more utilitarian departments of
ithe city's life;  water   and rail trans-
churchmen and other leading men,
that they tried to settle, but Dharm
Singh would not consent.
"Further, I would like to add that
if these accused are acquitted there
will be more trouble among the Hin
dus and even murder. (
"I wish that the English courts
should  be clear from perjury."
Mr. Chambers said the handwriting
in the letter was dlsgusel, and it was
very difficult to make it out.
Chief Justice Hunter said: "1 have
to say that the person who wrote
that letter was guiltv of the grossest
contempt of court. This is an attempt
to approach Justice by the backdoor
Instead of by the front. Any letter
addressed to a judge, either in civil
or criminal cases, commenting on the
progress of the court is an attentat
to influence the course of Justice
tbrough the judge. I have directed
the police to take this letter and to
use every possible diligence to find
the author. If brought before me, he
will be summarily dealt with."
The court then  adjourned  till ten
o'clock this morning.
is impossible with any purely formal
street plan." Milwaukee is planning
not a classic group in which to house
its officials, but garden suburbs with
attractive houses for one hundred
thousand people. Parks right by the
door of her citizens are another idea
being worked out in MMvwiukee. She
Is also sending her heaJkr traffic underground and reserving the surface
for passenger traffic. "Everyone,"
says Mr. Howe, "should have a cottage and a piece of land in a healthy
suburban village, even though he
travels daily to his work." The travelling expenses could easily h,e.reduced.
In Glasgow eighty-five per ftcnt of the
passengers ride for, ^one 'cent, and
Glasgow makes so much money from
her municipal railways thfet'tehe does
not know what to do with-it.
The Germans not only discovered
city planning, but also discovered a
gold mine that makes-' all these
things possible and without costing
Anybody anything. The Gef-man cities keep the street railway, gas, water
and electric lightning, because they
consider it bad business to keep only
the things like sewers that lose
money and give away valuable privileges that make money. But the increasing land value Is the gold mine
from which the needs of the future
can be paid. It Is inexhaustible and
grows with the growth of population.
No inc:me tax is needed. What is
neede I is to increase the tax on the
value of land. This has been done
in Germany, In Australia, in Western
Canada and recently . in England.
Such is Mr. Howe's dream city, and
such the means whicb he holds
should be taken for the fulfilment of
the dream. Such a dream is, however, only for the wakeful, and will
never come to those who are asleep
to their own real Interests and to
those of their neighbors:' '

It is understood that Col. Hughes,
the new Minister of Militia, Intends
holding a gathering of all the senior
officers of the active militia and all
officers commanding units at Ottawa
very shortly. In all probability the
meeting will assemble about tbe middle of November in order that the officers participating may attend tho
first levee of the new governor-general. The object ls, of course, to discuss various schemes which may be
brought forward for the betterment of
and I hope, will some day, be recognized to be a fact here.
Surely a committee could be formed ln each congregation to, at any
rate, discuss the matter. Each must
have a certain number of lovers of
boyhood in its ranks, who would be
willing to devote part of their spare
time to what would be a source of
pleasure and benefit to the boys
themselves, a boon to the parents, a
good influence on the future morale
oT the  city,  and  which  would  carry
the force.   And if lt does not develope I with it, a reward beyond measure for
into a social function an immense
amount of good should be brought
about. The big-wigs at Ottawa have
time and again shown themselves to
be absolutely ignorant of conditions
which obtain In the localities where
tbe militia are recruited, particularly
with regard to the west (the organization of the KUth aa rural militia being a striking example), and if some
of the commanding officers will only
make themselves beard, as doubtless
they will, we can confidently expect
the speedy amelioration of many
hard conditions under which the va-
ilous units (again, particularly ln tbe
west) are laboring at the
the efforts of those who would Interest themselves in the movement.

Welsh Not Forgotten.
Westminster can come back. This
was the lesson to be read by anyone
fortunate enough to be present at a
most enjoyable gathering of lacrosse
players and admirers at tbe residence
of Alderman Gray, on Second street.
Included in the company were C. A.
Welsh, Nels Nelson, George Rennle.
Alderman Fred Lynch, Len Turnbull,
Grumpy Spring. Tom Rennie, Johnny
Howard and Pat Feeney.
Mr. Welsh was a few minutes late,
and pending his arrival the company
was entertained with some excellent
gramophone selections. In spite of
the "counter attraction" of the music,
however, the arrival of the popular
manager who has so often seen the
Westminster boys play on to victory
was greeted with very cordial manifestations of applause.
It soon became evld.ent that there
waB something special on hand. Just
what, was made apparent when Mr.
Wells Gray rose and said that tue
team, as a slight token of the high
esteem In which they held Mr. Welsh,
had decided to ask his acceptance of
a gold watch and chain. This, said
Mr. Gray, would be formally done on
behalf of the club by Mr. George Rennle, acting captain of the lacrosse
Captain Rennie then made the presentation, gracing the act with a few
appropriate remarks. The watch
bears the following inscription: "Pre
sented to C. A. Welsh, manager West"
mlnBter lacrosse team, by the players.
Season 1911."
Pat Feeney, who, of course, where
ladles are concerned, enjoys all the
privileges which are yielded to Irishmen wherever Britons gather, asked
Mr. Welsh to accept, on behalf of
Mrs. Welsh, a handsome gold mounted umbrella.
. When Mr. Welsh rose to reply the
boys were by no means nig ardly in
showing the appreciation to which
they had already given tar;ible expression ln the gifts Mr. Y'elsh was
have to be filled. It waa the duty of
the club management to go to wors
and get players.
A trainer'was necessary, and a paid
manager who would be at the service
of .the club all the time. It was impossible fer blm to act as manager,
when his own affairs occupied him so
fully. If any of the Westminster
players wished to go east, he could
not blame them. "We are out and
out professionals nowadays," he said.
"Every man must look to himself."
Alderman Lynch said he spoke
without being Bure of his ground, but
he thought It was very unlikely that
Queens park would be available as a
Playing ground next year. So long
as the boys were willing to put up a
game for nothing, the people did not
mind the oval being used, but now
that professionalism was acknowledged, and the enormously increased
expenditure that professionalism involved, and big gates were a sine qua
non of good lacrosse, there were mur-
murings, "kicks." He thought the
difficulty might be met if the club
agreed upon a percentage of the gate
receipts being paid to the city. He
had an idea that liberty might be
given for the- use of Moody park If
some arrangements such as he had
Indicated were arrived at w(th the
city. That locality was well served
by the B. C. E. R., and a percentage
of the gate receipts paid to the city
might come easier than ownership of
grounds by the club.
And so in all the speeches, and
throughout the deliberations, the fact
was admitted that the club Is forced
Into recognition and acceptance of
professionalism. All the forecasts
for next season were based upon the
situation which has arisen while
hitherto the Westminster team have
been content to bring glory to the
city, as in a supreme degree the
home of lacrosse ln the west. The
days of amateur lacrosse are days of
the past; victory lies with the city
and with tbe club that is prepared to
pay for the best talent available.
With the acceptance of the changed
conditions Westminster will come

the Brigade to come forward and play
their part, and it seems strange to
uie that the training of our boys
which I should think Is a matter of
supreme Importance should evoke
such little interest In the minds of
those who are in moral charge of the
populace and who, having grown from
boyhood themselves should realize
the duty they owe to the rising generation. Apparently, from the military point of view Instructors and to

more Ib needed, and that ta organization. This caa only be done by

Defends the Sparrow.
>The English sparrow haa so few
friends in tbis country that it la interesting to learn that there is someone to put in a good word for him.
The government naturalists at Washington have gathered considerable data with reference to the sturdy little alien, derived from a careful study
of the food habits of the foreigner.
With aU hit faults lt Is asserted
that the English sparrow does some
good by assisting in the work of destroying the seeds of noxious plants.
Flocks of thousands of these Mil tie
birds may be seen in various parts
of our country feeding upon crab-
grass and yaidgrass, two weeds that
crowd out good turft-making grasses.
The little roudy also deserves credit
for destroying seeds of the dandelion.
In the destruction of the dandelion
seeds the sparrow ls aided by several native birds, chiefly tiie song sparrow, but, ao far aa observed, tl.; native birds do not usually cut open
dandelions, but feed upon those left
by the English sparrow.
In summarizing the Work ot these
birds as weeds destroyers it may be
pointed out tbat not less than fifty
different speclea ot birds serve man
in thla'capacity, and that the noxious
planta they help to eradicate number
more than sixty -speclea. ' During the
colder half ot the year almost the only food of many Speclea of birds consists of the aeeds ot well known and
widely distributed weeds.
Goldfinches destroy weeds that sre
not touched by other birds, confining their attacka chiefly tb one group
of planta, many of tbc members ot
which are serious nests, but tbe birda
that accomplish most aa weed-destroyers are the native sparrows tbat
flock to the weed patches In early
autumn and remain until late spring
During cold'weather they require a
good deal of food to keep them warm,
and because of their gregarious
hablta they a-? efficient consumer.

���Many of Them Still Believe In Signs,
Portents and Various
Why does a sea-faring man���captain, cook or cabin boy���consider it
unlucky to ship with a man who neglected to pay his laundry bill?
Why does a sailor nearing port after a lengthy voyage gather up old
clothes and shoes unfit for further
use and ceremoniously commit them
to the deep?
Why does he like to sail on a ship
which displays a shark's tooth firmly
nulled to the bowsprit or Jibboom?
Why doeB he like cats?
Why does he place great faith ln
the merits of a pig as a weather
Foggy Jones and Squally Jack.
The simplest answer to these questions is���because the average sailor ls
superstitious. He may not be quite
as superstitious perhaps as the old-
timer who went long voyages In sail-
tug vessels, but even the advent of
the four-day transatlantic liners���sky.
scraping steamships and floating hotels which travel from port to port
on schedule time in defiance of
storms, doldrums and other unfavorable weather conditions���has not
quite deprived the sailor of his reputation for superstltiousness. Some day
he may become as matter of fact as
an underground railway guard, but
there still lingers round him enough
of the romance and mystery of the
sea to make an interesting study of
him and his odd  beliefs.
During very rough weather at sea
it would be hard to convince any old-
time sailor that there wasn't a .Jonah
aboard. Many captains of the old
school, who ought to know better, are
sso superstitious In this respect that
it Is not uncommon for them to take
intense dislike to officers who have
happened apparently to be the har-
bincers of bad weather, and especially fog. It ls quite usual on board
shin to find members of the crew
nicknamed "Foggy Jones," "Heavy
Went her   Bill"  or  "Squally  Jack."
Cats on board ship nre considered
lucky, and many a stray one finds a
comfortable home and careful attention with Jack for its friend, although
im the other hand, our domestic friend
has'ut times been held responsible
for the continuance of very bad
weather and had to play the part of
Jonah to the full extent.
Laundry Debts and Bad Weather.
Perhaps the most amusing superstition of the sailor is In considering it
a crime for a member of the crew to
leave port with his washing bill unpaid, as his neglect is severally believed to be the cause of bad weather being encountered Just after leaving port.
The ways of Invoking the gods of
the elements to bestow fair weather
and winds are numerous. Among the
I est kno-n is that when nearing port
:ifter a lengthv voyage, old clothes
and r-hces unfit for further use are
collected and thrown overboard with
muc' ceremony and faith as to the
ultin-ite beneficial results which will
cart ��� the ship swiftly and safely Into
barl or.
One of the most curious superstitions is that dealing with the capture
of !���  shark.
The natural dread and antipathy
with which these monsters of the
deep are viewed causes a capture to
be hailed with much reolcing. All
bunds, from the captain to the cabin
boy. tako a keen Interest In the op-
orations, and, having successfully
landed the shark on deck���a proceed-
Ing that causes no little excitement���
it is killed and its tail cut off. This
trophy is then nailed either on the
<nd of the bowsprit or Jihboom and
Is considered a valuable charm, capable of liaving the power to bring
the ship fair winds and finest of
weather. It is not uncommon to see
sailing ships lying in port, with this
peculiar sign of the sailor's superstition, but the ctiBtom Is fast dying out
with the advent of the steamship,
where the capture of a shark at sea
is a very rare occurrence.
The Lonely Albatross.
Another remarkable and weird belief is that connected with the alba-
tress. These huge birds, measuring
fourteen to eighteen feet from tip to
tip of their wings, are only to be seen
in the stormy regions of the Capes
of Cood Hope nnd Horn and the surrounding latitudes. They follow
shins for weeks at a time. The peculiar belief of old sailors credit
these birds with possessing the souls
or ancient mariners who for their
misdeeds liave been doomed to scour
these stormy regions for eternity.
I Hiring cairns these birds are easily
captured by a contrivance ot the sailors' own invention, which being bait-
ed attaches Itself to the hooked bill
of  the  albatross  attempting  to  procure  the  bait  nnd  the  bird  Is then
hauled   on   board.    Few  captains  of
ships   will   allow   these   birds   to   be
killed by the crew on account of thho
belief thnt the killing would be certain to bring; disastrous results.
Pig Breezes.
The killing of a pig at sea is nl
ways  an  ocrnrlon  of    much  importance, not only    lor   the reason that
fresh ment ls to be enjoyed���a great
luxury  on  a  sailing  ship  after  rer-
baps months of salt provisions���but
also  because what   is  termed  a  "pig
breeze"  or  favorable  wind   may   be
looked   upon   as   a    certainty.    Pigs
when kept on Railing vessels nre often  let  out  of their  pens, and  tlieir
movements   are   watched   with   keen
interest.   Should a pig show signs of
laziness nnd merely lie down or wander lazily about   the   decks, this is
considered  a  sigh   of calm  weather,
with little cr no wind ln prospect, but,
any rrigklness and a great amount of
squealing is hailed as a sure sign of
winds,   a   very   ,ie?essary   factor   for
the navigatldn of �� sailing ship.
Sailing on a Friday Is, aB many
know, considered unlucky; Sunday Is
generally considered n lucky day, although the superstition as regards
the day of sailing is almost forgotten and  Eeldom    commented    on in
these days of rapid travelling.
Whistling for Whrllwinds.
Whistling on board ship is considered a dangerous habit and a direct
call for stormy weather. The culprit,
whoever he may be, is quietly rebuked, although duiing calms captains and other Indulge In the habit,
preferring to risk stormy weather to
drifting about motionless.
The superstition in regard to what
Is known by sailors as St. Elmo's
lights Is vague, and beyond the fact
that there is something uncanny
about it, few men of the forecastle
.understand the cause of the soft
glowing lights which sometimes appear on the tips of the yards and
masts of a ship in very stormy weather. The phenomenon Is due to the
electrification of the air, the tips of
the yards and masts forming a contact with a thunder cloud and earth.
It was the belief among the Romans
that when only one light could be
seen the worst of the storm was still
to come, and this single light was
known by the name of Helena. However, when two or more lights appeared it was considered a sign that
the worst of the weather was past.

Barbary States Once So Powerful as
to Threaten AK Europe.
The Italian conquest of Tripoli will
mark an epoch ln the history of the
world, or one of the most Interesting
regions of tho world. The shores
and basin of the Mediterranean sea
were, down to comparatively modern
times, the chief seat of civilization
and the theatre of nearly all those
activities and achievements which
have been of substantial and enduring significance to the human race,
and of those shores that of Northern
Africa, which Is African ln only a
geographical and not a physical or
anthropological senee, was by no
means the least In influence and interest. In prehistoric times the entire stretch from Nile to Atlas was
marked with some of tbe highest attainments of Neolithic civilization,
while in the early historic centuries
It far surpassed most of the European littoral, and even down to the
fall of Rome maintained, especially,
ln Tripoli and Tunis, a conspicuous
Backed by the tremendous traditions of the Phoenicians, the Carthaginians, the Romans and the Vandals,
those favored regions continued to
hold a conspicuous place upon the
stake after the Arab conquest. It was
from them that the greatest and most
persistent alien Invasion and conquest of western Europe proceeded,
and It was from those four states
that for generations after the fall of
Granada there emanated a military
power which laid all Europe under
terror and tribute.
The beginning of the French conquest followed���of Algiers In 1830, Tu-
nsi in 1881, and now Morocco In 1911,
and the Italian connuest or re-conquest of Tripoli will complete the
prcoess and bring all the African
coast of the Mediterranean under
European domination again after
many centuries. It ls a tremendous
assumption of the "white man's burden," for the militant Arabs along the
coast are formidable in their fanaticism, while inland the millions of
sullen, implacable Berbers remain
unconquered. Phoenician, Carthaginian, Roman, Vandal and Arab have
during thirty centuries failed to subdue them, leaving to France and
Italy this latest task, which will not
be easily achieved. But. however
lone tbe struggle may b�� maintained
amid thp oases of the Barcan desert
and on the rugged slopes of A^as,
the end of the Barbary states lias
come. Henceforth they are European
colonies and the Mediterranean ls a
European lake.
London. Oct. 18.���Few women in
recent years have taken a deeper Interest in the cause of horn? training
and social enlightenment in tbe Ottoman empire than the Princess Em-
ine, cousin of the Khedive and granddaughter of the famous Mehmed Ali,
of Egypt, the founder of the reigning
khedivial dynasty.
Her highness, who is paying a
short visit to this country, In connection with an educational enterprise
for obtaining tbe translation into
Turkish and Arabic of suitable elementary textbooks on household management, sanitation and domestic
science, is an accomplished linguist,
as well as a woman of acknowledged
capacity in the conduct of affairs.
A newspaper representative who
was armed with an introduction from
Constantinople found tbe princess engaged with her private secretary correcting proofsheets in the beautiful
garden of a villa overlooking the sea
on  the  Hampshire  coast.
Interview With Princess.
"May I beg the honor of a short interview on the present state of affairs in Turkey?" asked tbe newspaper representative.
"With pleasure," was the reply ln
excelent English. "Pray ask any
question you wish. I am at your service. Coffee Is coming and you shall
have cigarettes from the house in a
minute or two."
"Well, highness, are you satisfied
with the condition of Turkey under
the new regime?"
"I am afraid not," replied the
princess sadly. "On the contrary we
are disappointed. Today Turkey Is in
a dangerous state of unrest. You
hear little in Europe of the actual
state of affairs. The British press
tries, I know, to be fair and Impartial in its comment on eastern affairs and to hold the scales of Justice evenly, oTTerlng, as occasion requires, sound, and I am sure, sincere
