yesterday. Captain Norton, assistant
postmaster-general, said he bopcd
shortly to be ln a position to make a
statement regarding the reduction of
cable rates between the United Kingdom and Canada, a matter which had
been engaging the attention of His
Majesty's Government for some time
The question of lower cable rates
throughout the empire engaged the
attention of the Imperlal press conference held at London some time
ago and also of tbe Imperial conference of last summer. On tbe latter
occasion the postmaster-general made
a statement to the effect that his government would enter Into negotiations with the cable companies, and It
was suggested that tf concessions
could not be obtained from the companies controlling sub-Atlantic cables an Imperial cable to be constructed and owned by the home and overseas government might be considered. It wah suggested that Canada
might contribute an overland connec

That of Panama Canal and
Kansas City, Mo., Nov. 14���With
Champ Clark, speaker of the House of
Representatives, Henry Stimson, secretary of war, and Judson L. R. Harmon, governor of Ohio, as guests of
honor, the Commercial Clu bhere tonight commemmorated with a banquet the 107th anniversary of the consummation of the John R. Hay treaty.
Because of the presence of Secretary
Stimson and his chief of staff, Majoi-
General Leonard Wood, the banquet
was military in character. All officers
and their aides appeared In the full
dress of the service.
"The problems of the Panama Canal." was the subject upon which Secretary Stimson spoke. He pointed
out that work was progressing rapidly on the big waterway and that its
I input ion was not far distant. As a
result of this state of affairs, lie said,
many problems were to be solved in
the near future. Among these, he
mentioned were:
What to do with the operation force
wben the cnnnl xvSs completed; how
to operate the canal and exercise control over the surrounding zone; v/hat
tolls should be charged vessels using
the canal.
Secretary Stimson spoke at some
length on the rate feature. He favored giving the interstate Commerce
Commission power to regulate the
rates. Mr. Stimson said further that
he opposed the establishment of a line
of government owned steamerB to ply
the canal.
Champ Clark's subject was "Thomas Hart Benton," whom the speaker
styled 'the great Mlssourlan."
Governor Harmon's address dealt
with the John Jay treaty. He did not
touch on present day politics.

Washington, D. C, Nov. 14,���The
State Department has heard from
Italy or Turkey nothing that would
suggest the extension of the good offices of the United States to terminate
the present war since the notification
from the Italian government of The annexation of Tripoli. Dispatches" le-
cetved from Tripoli at the Italian embassy today state that.a battalion of
Turks attacked1 the Italian forces yesterday but were repulsed, leaving five

Injuries Though   Many  Were Not So
Serious as at First
Los Angeles. Nov. 14.���Galbraith P.
Rodgers. transcontinental aviator,
who had such a narrow escape from
deuth Sunday when he fell Into a
freshly plower field south of Comp-
ton, announced through his manager,
H. Sanger tonight that he would finish bis flight next Tuesday afternoon.
"I will take Rodgers to the field
where he fell," said Mr. Sanger, "and
place him ln his machine. He will
then flnljih his flight. It is only seven or eight miles to the Pacific Ocean,
and Rodgers figures he will be strong
enough to make the flight.
"The Injuries Rodgers sustained,"
continued Mr. Sanger, "are not ao serious as we first thought. Three ribs
on his left side were broken, the left
side of his face was badly cut, and
both ankles sprained. There was no
Internal injuries and none to the

Yesterday morning in the city pollce court, John Bezoyk, without doubt
the most talked of man ln connection with the burglary committed on
the Bank of Montreal on October 15
last, was committed for trial on a
charge of receiving and retaining a
sum of about flve thousand dollars,
knowing the same to have been
stolen. At the time of his arrest,
and for sometime afterwards, Bezoyk
waa regarded as one of the principals in the burglary, and be was so
written of in the press of the entire
country, till one Saturday little
George Lavery, an 11-year-old newsboy, disclosed the fact that while
playing truant one day, he had sought
seclusion from prying eyes by retiring to the ravine under Carnarvon
atreet bridge, and there found a package of banknotes which Bezoyk had
afterwards induced him to han J over
for a small consideration ln real
money. The story came out ln the
Dally News of the Monday following,
and was hallel all over the country
as a sensational development in the
Bank of Montreal burglary case. Yesterday morning, in police court, this
development of the case was ratified
beyond question, when, <it the-close
of tho hearing on tbe charge on
which Bezoyk has been committed
for trial, a second charge Implicating
htm In the actual robbery was withdrawn.
Bezoyk, unlike many prisoners,
seems to thrive well in confinement.
In court, yesterday, he conveyed tho
impression, of being somewhat badly
in need of a shave. Otherwise, however, he differed little in appearance
from men in his class who bail from
southeastern Europe. except, ot
course, that the blasting accident of
which he was the victim some time
ago hai left him with but one eyt
and but one arm. He preserved an
appearanpe of cheerfulness and unconcern in the deck, and the only occasion on wlilcli he evinced more
than ordinary Interest In th^ proceedings was when he interjected a remark disclaiming ownership of a

cil requesting them to submit a by- iiey> m that city, on the night of Oc-
law to the ratepayers asking authority to raise $250,000 for the construction of a railway bridge across the
Fraser at Ladner. Mr. Macdonald explained that he had been successful
ln cecurlng some thirty-five or thirty-
six signatures of the largest land owners and farmers in the Delta to the petition. He was, however, struck by
the fact that the majority of those he
had tackled for signatures objected to
the railway companies having any control over the bridge. They thought the
British Columbia Electric Railway
should be kept out cf It, and the ownership vested In municipal anl government hands. He asked the council to
endorse the petition, having that in
The Chairman���"I take it that the
people are not In favor of the Joint
stock proposition and are In favor of
government and municipal ownership,
and you want that recommendation
from the board to the council added."
Mr. Macdonald assented.
Discussion ensued as to the practicability of eliminating the B. C. E. Tl.
Company's cooperation ln the scheme.
Naturally, there was soon seen to le
considerable difficulty In tbe way of
this being done. Mr. Grant said the
bridge was ostensibly tor railroad pur-
poses. It would take a million and a
halt to build it. and lf the company
were going to put money into the undertaking they would reasonably expect to have a voice in the management. They would find great difficulty In raising the money without the cooperation of the B. C. E. R. Company.
Mr. J. McKee pointed out that the
difficulty would be obviated if the
bridge were vested in municipal and
government ownership. He moved
that the Council be Instructed to submit the by-law to the people, and the
motion was unanimously adopted. ���

asked blm to give an account of himself. He told them what his name
was and where he lived. They arrested him on a charge of vagrancy
and took him to the station. On
searching him they found two hundred and odd dollars In his possession, amongst them several Bank of
Montreal bills, also a watch, a chain
and a loa.led revolver. They recog-
nlzed that some of the bills bad been
stolen from tho Bank of Montreal,
and witness told the accused that he
would be charged with robbing the
Bank of Montreal at New Westminster, and he did not need to say anything, because what he srid might
be used against him when he came to
trial. Inspector McRae asked the
prisoner If hc understood tbat, and
he said he did. Witness told the
prisoner he was aware he had been
passing a number of these bills tn
restaurants and gambling houses.
Prisoner said, "Maybe, seven or
eighth, maybe 10 or 12."
The police asked the prisoner lf ho

he hadn't. Tbey asked what he had

Greatest Card Game Held to Be One
of Chance.
Whist drives are illegal. This was
the decision of the Salford (Eng.)
Stipendiary the other day, who held
that whist was a game of chance,
and that in certain circumstances
whist drives constituted an offence
against the law.
In the case was one in which two
men were prosecuted for conducting
whist drives, and counsel for the defence pointed out tbat If the decision
went against his clients a curious situation would arise. This form of entertainment had often been promoted
by the police, and If it were illegal
those officers who had not taken part
in drives would have to arrest those
who had.
Both defendants were fined 10s. and
costs.   Notice of appeal was given.
The decision recalls a humorist':!
story of the game of "Old Sledge,"
which was the basis of a gambling
prosecution. It was suggested that
the Jury should retire and test
whether "Old Sledge" were a game
of chance or skill, by playing with
acknowledged exponents of it.
After a brief interval the Jury sent
out to borrow meney from the Judge.
The expectant court beguiled the tedium by speculating what was going
on In the inner room. Some indication was furnished by another appeal for funds by the Jurymen, and
at the end of a protracted sitting, a
procession of sad-visaged jurors flled
Into court and declared that whatever chance there might be in "Old
Sledge" they had had none whatever.
Probably the whist players of this
country would welcome a test case
on similar lines.
German    Book    of    History    Translated.
The National Monetary Commission has published a translation of
Dr. Eugen von Phillppovich's "The
Bank of England and its financial
Services to the State," which, though
well known to students of banking,
has hitherto only been accessible in
the German language. Dr. Philippo-
vlch, says the Monetary Times, does
not study the Bank of England as a
factor in the economic growth bf the
nation, but rather the "relations between the bank and the English 11-
nanclal administration, and the form
which they present today."
A Bank of Evolution.
Gome Lr.r.'.:s, ef which the Cermar.
Relchsbank and the Bank of Japan
are examples, have been organized
out of hand by legislative enactment
to aid ln the administration of government flnnace and to provide banking resources for industry and convenience. The origin of the immense
powers of the Bank of England waa
quite different. Although the Bank
of England was founded in 1694 lt
did not gain Its present intimate connection with government finance until the nineteenth century. The pres
ent powers of the bank were acquired
as experience showed government officials that the facilities of the bank
could be used to advantage ln the administration of the public receipts
and expenditures. In many cases the
bank was first made use of by finance ministers and paymasters, and
the legal authority followed, therefore, we have the best possible example of the development of an Institution that has, little by little, taken
o'n new functions and new nubile responsibilities as experience showed
these powers to be economically desirable.
Origin of the Bank.
In 1694 Wllll?m Paterson and associates advanced the government
��6,000,000 ln return for ��500,000 a
year, and the privilege of forming a
corporation under the title, "the Governor and Company of the Bank of
England." The corporation was allowed to deal In bills of exchange, to
buy and sell gold and silver bullion,
jto lend money on security, with-the
right of selling the security, with
three months after maturity of tho
debt formed the capital stock and the
bank was allowed to issue notes uo
(to that amount. There ls nothing in
{the law establishing the bank that
Indicates any Intention of turning the
management of the public debt over
to lt. None of the functions of the
exchequer were to be exercised by it.
However, the bank at once showed
its importance In relation to the government credit by cashing the bills
representing the public debt.
Increased Capital Stock.
In 1697 a new bank act allowed the
Bank of England to increase its capital stock by taking subscriptions in
bank notes and government bills, ln
1708 the capital stock was again increased through a loan to the government and the monopoly of the bank
was protected by a provision prohibit
ing companies of more than six persons from issuing bills or notes which
were payable within six months of
the date of issue. These two acts,
together with the original act of establishing, "formed the basis of the
Bank of England's position unul tin
beginning of the nineteenth century."

Restore Faded and Gray Hair
to Natural Color���Dandruff
Quickly Removed,
There is nothing new about the iile:\
of using snge for restoring tlie color of
the hair. Our great-grandmothers kept
their locks soft, dark nnd glossy by
using a "sage ten." Whenever thoir
hair fell out or took on n dull, faded or
streaked appearance they made n brow
of sage leaves nml applied it to their
hair, with wonderfully beneficial effect.
Nowadays we dou't hnre to resort to
old-time, tiresome methods ot gathering
the herbs nnd making the ten. This is
done by skillful chemists better thnn Vo
could do it ourselves, and all we bnve to
do is to call for the ready-made product,
Wyeth's Snge nnd Sulphur Hair Remedy, containing sage In the proper

In Lapland, among the Samoyedes

"Constantinople,  by  Its  very  location  on  the  Bosphorus,   facing   two

In the wild mountains of the Caucasus the postman holds a post of
some danger.for he must be protected
not only against savage brigands, but
also against the Inclemency of the
skies. There are few practicable
routes across the precipitous range3,
and Mount Ellruz, -the loftiest veak,
is over 18,000 feet high. Nowhere in
the world are there so piany peoples, head
nations, languages and religions, and
you will scarcely find so many daredevil ruffians elsewhere.
In marshy parts of Asiatic Russia
we may find the buffalo post. Great
shaggy beasts draw antediluvian looking two-wheeled wagon, while men almost as shaggy, in long, rough, white
garments ana astrachan caps, act as
postmen. Th:- carts sometimes carry
a passenger as well, but it need
bardly be saW that progress by this
matl coach ts neither rapll nor agreeable. Buffalo are far more powerful than oxen, and are useful In the
awamps of Siberia. Tbey can tread
with ease where most animals would
fear to venture, for their broad splay
feet Eee'm made on purpose to wade
through mud and morasD.
ln Kamschatka und on Lake Baikal
the post bags are carried in sledges
drawn by a whole army of dogs, intelligent creatures of the f.ame race
as those which dragged Peary to the

Dr. S. M. Zwemer who knows the
Moslem world so Intimately, writes
In the Moslem World an Interesting
article In which he points out the
world-wide Influence ot the Moslems.
"The Mohammedan world has three
capitals: Mecca, Cairo and Constan
tlnople," he says. "Mecca has been
the heart of (he Moslem world for
many centuries. It Is today the pulse
that throbs with a religious life which
finds an outlet to the farthest limits
of the Moslem Empire. Cairo ls the
where religious thought and
education, controversy and Moslem
propagandlsm through the press, have
their centre. And Constantinople
has. since the Ottoman Turks made it
their capital, been the hand, the center of Mohammedan political power,
and not only of political power, but
of grievous political persecution.
These three capitals, knit togethe
by  tbe warp  and   woof cf their  cos-
the caliph who resides at Stamboul.
"In view ot all these facts, lt requires no demonstration to show that
Constantinople, wth Its seething population of 1,106,000 souls constitutes
not only the political capital ot Islam
but one of Its most strategic centers.
"Cairo wltb a population of 664,486,
is not only the capital ot Egypt and
the metropolis ot all Africa, but the
literary centre of the Moslem wo*ld,
as Mecca is its religious, ani Constantinople its political centre. The
Earl of Cromer not without reason
described the Ulema of Cairo as the
'guardians of the citadel of Islam.' No
other city ln the Moslem' world has
so many students of Moslem theology
and law or pours out such a flood of
Moslem literature aB does Cairo. Millions of pages of the Koran, commentaries by the hundred thousand
and scores of books attacking the
Christian faith, defending Islam or
propagating Its teachings, some ceaselessly year after year from the Moslem presses of this great centre of
Moslem learning.
"Books printed In Cairo are read
by the camp fires of the Sahara, in
the market place of Tlmbuctoo, under the very shadow of the Kaaba.
and are treasure! ln Hie mosques of
Java and Western China. There Is
no speech or language in the Moslem world where the voice of the
Cairo press is not heard. Their line
bas gone out through all the earth
and their words to the end of the

in "remarking upon a resolution
wrhlclt" the-recent Governor-General
has made the Evening Journal says:
If ahtthWp Barl Grey has made
cn reputation Earl Grey has made
for hlmseff'tols latest announcement
is well calculated to do so. Instead
of assuming' mu exalted and lucrative
post sotfh"-Mr his abilities and experience would warrant, Canada's distinguished ex-Governor states that ho
will devote the next ten years of his
life to slum-land and to helping the
workingmen to attain a sounder economic position and a happier environment.
From the representative of the
British Crown in the empire's greatest dominion to a slum-woker in
Whltechapel Is a long way to travel
at one step. Those for whom such
social and imperial honors as Earl
Grey enjoyed would be the summit
of their ambitions, will doubtless be
greatly shocked by the news. But
there are many citizens of Canada
who will experience little surprise at
the noble pro-consul's decision. During his seven years' residence in the
Cupital he was Indefatigable In the
nubile eetylce. particularly In aiding
philanthropic causes most in need of
such help. Ills active and cordiat
support of. ..the movement for better
houses, to name but one example, amply showed how warmly his heart,
beat for the less fortunate classes of
society >.
Earl Grey, in dedicating thn prime
of his life to social uplift, proves himself a greater man than many realized. Hjs inspiring example would tell
us that lifter all the "summum bo-
num" of life is to serve the people.

A Village Mystery.
A visitor in a village on   the east
coast of  England  caused   a enmmo-
llon  by .paying   that  the  bodies   of
three"';ltinliireh    had    been    washed
ashore..   His statement was -loubted
and inquiries were made.   "I tell you
thay   weir*,"   continued    the   visitor
when   he"" was   questioned.      "They
were washbd'sBhore by their mother.
Ya* dorit suppose she would take V"i
ont Into the middle of the ocean to
wash 'em, dp you?"
were all ih small 'envelopes. Accused said afterwards that he had put
them in these envelopes, because he
was ijolng to send them away.
The witness, continuing, said that
when the prisoner was asked how he
came by the bills, be said that on tbe
morning the bank was robbed he met
a fellow at the hotel at the foot of tbe
steps. He was selling papers, and
the fellow said, "What do you go
around selling papers for, a big fellow like you?" The prisoner said it
was because he was a cripple. "I am
Borry for you," said tho fellow. "I
will give you lots of money. You need
not have to work for two or three
"I asked hlm what this fellow looked like," continued the witness. "He
said be was a big fellow with a red
moustache. He said he believed he
was an Irishman, but he did not remember very much now; sometimes
his head troubled him. "He was quite
willing to talk, and he repeated on
two or three occcaslons tbat It was
an Irishman that gave him the

would flnd some more money. "About
3 o'clock In the afternoon he wanted
to get over here the worst way. Hc
said on the way over that lf we let
him go Into New Weatminater alone,
not following him too close, be would
get one boy, and this boy would go
with hlm, he said, and he would get
more money."
Witness said the prisoner told the
Vancouver police that be had seen
three men come out of the bank, carrying three white canvas sacks, about
8 o'clock in the morning. When prisoner was asked If it was dark then, he
answered, "Yes, dark."
Chinaman's   Evidence,
C. S. Shue, who said he kept a Chinese grocery store, testified tbat
about 10:30 on the night the prisoner
was arrested, he saw Jackson, McRae
and McLeod on the corner of Pender
street and Columbia avenue, and he
told them be kne-v a man who spent
a bunch of banknotes.
"Why did you tell them that?" asked the prosecuting counsel.
Witness: "Because I want them to
catch that man; I tell them the place
where to flnd him."
Witness said he saw the prisoner
spending the banknotes, and be knew
they were Stolen because his partner
got the numbers of the stolen Hank
of Montreal notes from the Northern
Crown Bank.
Had Bezoyk Guilty Knowledge?
The  prosecution's  answer   to   this
question Is the evidence of Quon Ma-
lidomis, a Greek, who kce^s a fruit
store   or   stall,  on   the   corner    of
Twelfth   street   and   Columbia.      He
testified,  in effect, that the prisoner
had been in the habit of going to his
place and buying fruit.   The prisoner
brought blm a list of the numbers of
the banknotes stolen.    The list was
on paper.    The paper had  been destroyed   and   the   witness   had   transcribed the numbers on to a piece of
wood, which was produced in court.
Last of All, George Lavery.
Under  examination   by  the   court,
George    Lavery, "lhe    next   witness,
pleaded guilty to being eleven years
of age.    He further admitted that be
went to school���that is, of course, as
a rule���to Sunday school, and even to
church.    But he did not know the nature of an oath.    He did know, uow-
ever, that It is wrong to tell lies and
that punishment follows tbe telling o*
lies.    So George's unsworn testimony
was   accepted.      The evidence   was
something like this:
Mr. Bloonlleld, as representing the
Bank of Montreal, and as acting city
prosecutor in the absence of Mr. McQuarrie, who Tiau gone to attend the
county court: "Now, George, you
know the accused man, Bezoyk?"
Witness:    "Yes."
Mr. Bloomfleld: "How long have
you known him?"
Witness: "I Just met him the
time we went down to the market
Mr. Bloomfleld: "Where did you
meet him In the first place?"
Witness: "I met him before that
when he was selling papers."
Mr. Bloomfleld:    "How long ago?"
Witness: "t saw him pretty nearly
every day."
Mr. Bloomfleld:    "For how long.
Witness:    "I don't know how Ion.?."
Mr. Bloomfleld: "A month or
Witness;   "I think so."
Mr. Bloomfleld: "You remember
the time you heard about the Hank
of Montreal robbery?"
Witness:    "Yes."
Mr. Bloomfleld: "What happened
that morning?"
Witness; "I met him and told him
the bank was robbed."
His Worship: "You told blm the
bank was robbed?"
Witness:    "No.    He told me.'
Mr. BTocmfleld: "That was the
morning when you flrst heard about
Witness:    "Yes."
Mr. Bloomfleld: "Did you flnd anything that morning?"
Witness: "Yes. I found the money
that morning."
Mr. Bloomfleld: "Where did you
flnd it?"
"Below the Carnarvon bridge."
"What did you do?"
"I was going to see if I could find
my father when I met him (the prisoner). I told him I had got tho
money, and I asked him if they were
auy good. He Baid they were, and
then I took him to the bridge. He
took some of the money under his
coat, and I took some under my coat.'
"How much did he take?"
"We took it all." *
"How much, compared with what
he took, did you take?"
A pause of apparent puzzlement by
the witness.
His Worship: "Between them they
took it all down to the accused's

and saw them counting the monsy."

The Defence. ,
Mr. J. Goodstone, of Vancouver,
who appeared for the prisoner, entered seceral objections, which he asked to be recorded. His last objection
was that the charge against the pils-
oner was one on which a convction
could not be made on unsworn evi-
edenc, If It was uncorroborated.
He had nothing to say in answer to
the charge, and the prisoner was
committed for trial at the next court
of competent Jurisdiction.
Ab has been stated, the charge of
theft was withdrawn.
Widespread Interest was aroused In
Paris  when   the   announcement  was
made  that  the  ballet  master  ot  the
National  Opera for  the  coming  season  would be  a  RusiTin, Ivan  Clus-
tne.   That a foreigner, especially one
with  such   radical    ideas    concerning
dancing matters as  M.  Clustine  was
known to advocate, should be chosen
to preside over tbe  'estlnles   of the
national   subsidized   opera   house  of
France  was  considered   by  the  conservative clement as nothing short of
a scandal.
Fortunately, however, the progressive element triumphed and Messrs.
Messager and Broussau's Initiative
received official sanction. So Parisians will witness this winter on their
national stage the rare spectacle of
the time-worn traditional ballet obeying the dictates of an ardent partisan
of "natural dancing" which has, so
far, never been characteristic of ballets at the Paris Opera.
Many have been the sensational
changes predicted by M. Clustlne's
adversaries, but ln an interview
granted this week to Musical America he denied the possibility of such
"extravagances." M. Clustine bas
danced for twenty-flve years as flrst
dancer and the rest of the time as
ballet master.
"The capital reform which I shall
try to carry out will be that concerning the choice of the dancers," said
M. Clustine. "Henceforth masculine
characters will be Interpreted by men
cnly. This will, I hope, lead to the
suppression of the Bo-eallcd 'travestl,'
which Is Illogical and gives the whole
ballet an awkward and artificial appearance whicli ls quite unbearable, I
am at p esent busily engaged slaving
a new baTTet, 'Roussalka,' composed
by Louis Lambert on a Russian
theme. I hope to show the Paris public upon the very flr.it performance
of this new work, the fi;st to which

what my exact conception of the art
of dancing is.

The Croo Is Used In Northern France
' to Enrich the Soil.
Among the Important features of
the agricultural Industries along the
northern coast of France is the harvesting of seaweed.
As soon as the receding waters permit the seaweed gatherers fall diligently to work. Soon every rock and
ledge is shaven of its brown, slimy
fleece and left, as bare as the back of
a shorn Bheep.
Then preparations are mad? for an
attack on the reefs, so numerous
along the southern coast of the English channel. Everything that will
float ls pressed Into service. Huge
rafts are constructed, and next morning, with the current of the ebbing
tide in their favor, they are towed
by the people in the boats eight or
ten miles out from the coast.
Low water leaves them stranded
on the reefs and all hands make the
best of their time. The worker
kneels on the dripping weeds, grasping a handful ln the left hand and
with a sickle In the right cuts it olT
close to the rock and places lt in a
bag. As soon as he has cut as much
as he can carry the sack Is taken on
hiB baek to the raft, unon which it is
received by men with pitchforks,
stacked anl and securely  roped.
Towing tli? heavily-laden rafts to
the shore is tedious work, and progress is slow. The wet harvesters

Paraphrasing Horace Greeley's famous remark about horse thieves and
Democrats, the popular estimation of
the truthfulness of fishermen would
run something like this: A/11 liars
may not be llshermen, but it ig at
least significant that all fishermen
are liars. These be harsh woi da, my
brethren, and do great Injustice to a
large and worthy body.
Perhaps fishermen do not always
stick closely to the narrow paths of
truth. What of that? Those who
walk always ln rectilinear ways may

i Hockey.
It was not to be expected tbat tbe
Hoyal City would be unreprsented in
the Western Canada Ice Hockey
League Frank Patrick, who, with his
brother, Lester, and bis father, ls one
of the men most Interested ln thc
Western Canada League, was ln this
city last Thursday arranging the details for the taking over of the franchise of one of the Vancouver clubs
by a Westminster club. A number of
local men, well known in professional
and business circles, were Interested
In the scheme, and these have decided to act as sponsors for the first
Westminster Hockey Club. The
names of the local men are withheld
for the present, but will be given out
towards the end of this week, after
the organization has been perfected
and officers elected.
Vancouver and Victoria wlll have
teams led by Frank and Lester I'uU
rick and it is about definitely assured
that the Royal City will have the third
team managed by Hugh Lehman, the
Berlin, Ont., goaltender. Arrangements are under way for the erection
of nn lec rink In New Westminster for
next year though, of course, It will bo
Impossible for Westminster to have a
rink this season, but the Westminster
will play Its home games on Vancouver Ice. lt was at first Intended to
have two Vancouve rteams ln the new
league but after mature consideration
the plan of including Westminster in
the league has heen deemed the best,
the idea being to inject the lacrosse rivalry Into the winter pastime.
Krnle Johnston, who wlll play coverpolnt for the Westminster team, left
Montreal lust Thursday morning, and
is due In Vancouver today. He will
be followed by Harry Hyland, Pud
Glass and Jimmy Gardner, all of whom
wlll play on the Royal City team. With
Lehman this makes five players already signed for this team and Frank
Patrick is angling for a couple of
Pnddy Moran of Quebec, who ls considered the best goaltender in the National Hockey League, will likely play
goal for the Vancouver team. Tie has
hem offered a nice sum of money to
come west and has av>out made uo
his mind to accept. If hs comes only
���one more player will be required to
round out the Vancouver team. Frank
Patriek and Sl Griffiths will complete
the defence and the forward line wlll
be made up or Tom Phillips. Newsy
Lalonde. Blbby Nichols and the new
man. Harris of tbe Kenora.Thistles is
coming west and will probably be secured for spare man.
A goaltender and two forwards are
still required for the Victoria teat1.
Thet* are tour player* now in the capital, Lester Patrick, point; Walter

Isfatches froth the east, the National'

to Wanderers nnd Rowe to "Toronto,
hut neither of these playese wlll be
found In the east this winter.
The National Hockey Association ls
evidently getting alarmed at the Way
its star pin vers are heing grabbed
up by the Western Canada League, for
it has passed a resolution barring for
life players who come west. The National Lacrosse I'nion adopted a similar rule" several years ago, yet Newsy
Lalonde had no trouble In getting
back when he desired, while Jimmy
Hogan and Shaun O'Reilly also played
lust when they felt like It. Now Johnny Howard is snld to be slated for a
Job with Tronto. The N. L. U. rule
was made for Intimidation, purposes
only, and It Is apparent that tbe Hookey Association Is trying the same tactics.    But that will not prevent the

money ls the players will be found.
"Newsy" Lalonde and Dot Phelan
will leave for the Coast on November |
25. Phelan ls some hockey player as
well as a lacrosse expert, and will
likely catch ori with the Westminster
team. There will be quite an exodus
of players rrom Montreal on that date,

other i'layers who wlll round out the

This interesting phenomenon is   due
to tbe change in color of the salts on

Even In Mohammedan Countries, the
Sex Aspires.
The attempt of a Persian deputy to
introduce the question of woman's
suffrage into a Parliamentary debate
is perhaps the most remarkable phase
of the later development of the feminist movement.
It is not surprising tn view of the
position assigned to women ln Moslem countries, writes a correspondent
of the London Standard, that his declaration tbat a woman bas a soul and
civic rights was received with horrified silence by the Chamber, pli
orthodox Mohammedans, or that they
ordered the exclfelcn of the "unfoi...
tunate incident" from the records of
the House.
The deputy was probably a member of the Babist movement, founded
by Mlrza All Mahomet, who declared
bintelf to le Ike ."Hab" W gate
through which the faithful might
communicate with the "hidden
Imam." a prophet who, according to
Shiah beliefs, will some day appear
t rule the world. "Bablsm," a mixture of Mohammedanism, Christianity
and the philosophical precepts of the
older religions, unlike Mahometanlsm
gives to women a prominent place ln
Ub councils.
The Vogue in the West.
For some time It enjoyed a vogue
ln England and the United States,
hnd It is said to have a vorj) ilurpd
secret following in Persia, including
some of the higher officials and prominent members of parliament. That
the new movement among women,
which even in Persia has already begun, should find support in this quarter is not at all astonishing, and as
this sect ls expected to play a leading
part In the future development of the
country an extension of the woman's j
movement may be expected, a devel-
opment which is also foreshadowed
In other eastern countries.
In the east, as In the west, the women are asking for the openings of
the doors to intellectual advancement; are claiming a larger share in
the world's work and an ampler
choice of sphere. In Persia and India. Turkey and Egypt, where the
women aro under the sway of the
Oriental tradition of passive obedience and virtual slavery, the movement is almost, if not entirely, confined to the weathier classes, and its
mainspring is education. During the
last decade or two English, French
and German governesses have been
the constant companions of the ladies
of the harems, among whom western
ideas have found a place.
Turkish ladies have put on the
garb of western thought with their
Parisian dresses. Educated as are
few of their sex in less favored circumstances in Kngland and America,
in France and Germany, they have
grown disconti nted with their seclusion. Bcok knowledge has given
them a keen desire to see the outside
In  India,  in  Egypt anil   in   Persia
the   admission   of   European   governesses and missionaries, the reading
of Western books   and journals   may
also be said  to be the main factors I
in the production of what is perhaps
the  most  significant  development   of j
modern  times,  the  universal   cry   of |
women for equality with man.
A Woman's View.
"The usual thing'." a lady observed
when    the     Persian     incident     was
brought to her notice.    "The Persian
women, as a matter of fact, have been
doing a lot of political work for some
time  now.    They   have  been   taking
tiie  national   point     of     view     very
strongly.    They showed an active interest,  for   [Bstance,  in   the   Persian
loan last year, and are really intelligently interested in the condition of
the country, and aie opposing everything wliich they consider woull fur
ther enslave Persia by the use of a
Very definite apd direct influence.'
As in Persia. so( liurkey.vpolitical
life has not heen' withoht feminine direction. The better class of Turkish
women took a large part in the revolution which ousted Abdul Hamid
-from his throae. They -dropped the
yashmak in many cases, and iu some
instances even addressed public meetings. Indian women are copying
western customs and absorbing western ideals. There are now native doctors and one la ly lawyer.
The age of marriage is being raised in enlightened quarters to something approaching ths European
standard. The lot of tlie child widow-
is being made happier, and efforts
are now being made to secure Sanction for remarriage, in Egypt there
is evidence of a desire for more education and greater freedom to develop
and use the intellectual faculties to
the fullest extent.
Chinese and Japanese.
The Chinese women are allowing
their feel to grow to normal size, and,
unfortunately, though it is systematic
of tb<> change tire adopting B5uto��
pean dress. The Japanese are asking
for teachers and are sending their
girls to hiuh schools, ancl they, too.
are discarding the picturesque costume of their mothers.
Everywhere, in fact, east and west,
the same unrest and longing for
change, for the wider outlook and a
larger life, are abundantly manifest.
Persia is only, for the moment, the
most interestin*: because Persia is
the lasl to join the movement.

on the Fraser and Pitt Rivers, in the vicinity of Port Mann and Coquitlam
No. 3.
It Is learned  today    from    official
sources that it ls the intention of the
Canadian  Northern  Pacific to    start
laying steel east    from    Port   Mann
early next week, probably on Monday
and for this purpose the first C.N.P.
rolling stock to reach the coast was
landed here early  this week and Is
now lying in the C. P. It. yards. The
equipment consists   of    two  engines
and cabooses, and a number of flat
cars.    Today  the engines are being
tested under pressure by the provincial Inspector of boilers and machinery, and if all Is satisfactory the outfit will be shipped to Port Mann by
the G. N. R. old line, from which a
spur has been run to   the   point   at
which the first steel will be laid.
At the same time, a start will be
made with the work of grading the
yards at Port Mann, and for this purpose a steam shovel has been shipped
on the G. N. R. from the Eastern
States, and ls expected to arrive in
the city tonight. This will also be
landed in Port Mann without delay,
and will soon be making the dirt fly.

considered that the C. P. R. was go-
into the townsite business and the
lands which they sought to expropriate were required for speculative
rather than Improvement purposes.
The contention of the C. P. R. representative was that all tlie land
which thev sought to expropriate
would be required by the company
for legitimate extension and not tor
speculative purposes.
Coquitlam is to be the C. P. R.

embrace a net-work cf ninety-five

"cold" as he uses them clo not, however, refer to the temperature, but
rather to kinds of food. The distinction between these, moreover, is
sometimes so fine as to quite incomprehensible to the western mind.
The superstition of thirteen seems
to be world-wide. In Persia it 19 so
strong that in counting it Is customary to say: "Eleven, twelve, not
thirteen," etc.
Another  of   their  superstitions   re-
ates to bread.    They think it a bad

it into pieces. |

type on circular paper about two in

Written prayers are often sewed u >
In cases of leather or beads or silk
and worn about the neck. The most
approved way of using written prayers, however, Is to put tlie j-aper in
water and after the ink has faded
from the paper, to drink the water.
It is easy at this distance of time
and space to write somewhat lightly
on this subject, but I remember,
writes Mary A. Colquhoun in the L09
Angles Times, that my feelings were
vefy different when some poor, disheartened woman asked me to write
for her a prayer that her husband
might love her, that he might not
take another wife, that Gol would
five her a son so that she might retain her husband's favor, or that her
sick baby might be restored to

and then, thinking that this should
have been done by the shah, she pio-
nounced a curse upon any king who
should ever  cross  the bridge.    It is
said that no Persian ruler has ever
had the hardihood to venture upon lt.
One is thought to be very lucky to
be the bearer of good news and
equally unlucky to be obliged to be
the bearer of evil tilings. Indeed
there is Buch a prejudice against telling bad news that it is always concealed as long as possible from those
most interested.
in the early days ot missions ln
iPersia the people were naturally
suspicious of the missionaries and
were constantly bn the lookout for
something In their houses which
would exert a baleful Influence upon
native visitors.    A Persian lady call-
.   .
known as the "evil eye."   You must  as.to the advisability of starting on
not say to some one whom you meet:
"How well you are looking!" For if
you do, and tbat person ls taken ill, it
wlll be because you gave him the evil
eye. You must not say to a mother:
���'What a pretty baby!" "What a
bright child!" For lf you do, and
anything unfortunate happens to that
child you wlll be considered respon
slble. Many mothers let their children go dirty and poorly clothed ln
order that they may not attract fav-
able attention.
The sign which ls thought to have
some power to avert the evil eye consists in holding the second andthlrd
ing one  day  on  an American   lady I fingers of both hands close to the
missionary  wished  to sit ln a rock-   palms   with   the   thumbs,   while   the

had never Reen before. She got un
Into it with her feet, and attempted
tO squat upon her heels, as She would
have done mon the floor, with the result that she and the chair both
took a tumble backward. Hence
there went abroad a report th-it tho

The  great  superstition  is  what is

i Fortune telers do a big business in
Persia. Some read the 'palm; otherr,
read the stars; still others consult
Koran, for so firmly Is superstition
nixed even with their religion that
"curas" or passages from their sacred book are marked "lucky" or "unlucky."   Should a Persian be ln doubt
a Journey or undertaking any enterprise he might visit a fortune teller
and ask him to consult the Koran.
Should he. opening the book at random, chance upon a sura marked
"unlucky" lt would be a divine indication that the project must be abandoned.
Old not our ancestors consult the
Bible ln much the same way? For
them the Indications were not quite
so certain, for the translators of our
Scriptures failed to mark passages
for the purpose''ot fortunetelllng, but
the spirit was the same.
Charms and lpve potions are commonly resorted to. There ls a story
told of one man who did not believe ln love potions. In order to-
prove to several friends that there
was nothing ln it he bribed the maid
of a prominent wealthy married woman to give her mlBtress a potion
which was designed to make her fall
ln love with him. A few hours afterward the servant of this lady ap-
���peared at his house, saying: "My
mistress wants to see you." Whereupon the man became frightened an*

The local W. C. T. U. greatly regrets that the very stormv weather
prevented the Sunday school temperance rally planned for the
"Wor'd's Temperance Sunday," Nov.
12, 1911. from becoming an accom
Wished fact. Eleven or more of thc
different Sunday schools of tlie clt>
intimated their willingness to be
present and join In the Eerviccs, haO
the day been suitable.
